Boston and LA having a terrible day? 

Ah man you just hate to see it 

I actually do for Boston to be honest they've only been semi relevant compared to the Lakers since Bird left them. 

I know they won the chip, but it was short lived basically. Oh well who cares.

Sorry I dont know how to post the article

What do you think

No. We don’t have the cap room since taking on Crabbe contract and this is not the year for Hawks to go all in for free agents.  Looking at future free agent crops, probably looking at 2021 before Hawks go all in.

Nah, I'd rather see what we have for a couple years before making any big signing in free agency.

We have $12 million in capspace after the Crabbe deal.

I actually would be okay with it Vooch would take us from maybe playoff berth to at least 5-7 seed with what we have.

I know I know it's early, but I honestly believe after last night we're in for a big big surprise this season.

Sources: Rockets plan to recruit Jimmy Butler

Once free agency starts on Sunday, the Houston Rockets are planning to recruit Jimmy Butler to push the Philadelphia 76ers for a sign-and-trade deal that would allow the All-Star forward to join James Harden and Chris Paul, league sources tell ESPN.

The Rockets don't have the salary-cap space to sign Butler, so they'd need the threat of the Sixers losing him for nothing to a team with the available room to motivate the Sixers into a trade.

The Sixers plan to be aggressive in signing Butler to a new deal, sources said, and could blunt a Rockets push with a full five-year, $190 million offer at the start of free agency on Sunday night. The Sixers could offer Butler a four-year, $146.5M deal, too.

 

Butler would be eligible to sign a four-year, $140 million contract on the way to the Rockets, but Houston would likely need to include center Clint Capela and guard Eric Gordon to make the financial deal work, sources said.

The 76ers are facing a free agency that includes Butler, Tobias Harris and JJ Redick. They're expected to make a significant four- or five-year offer to keep Butler, whom they acquired in a trade with Minnesota for Dario Saric and Robert Covington in November.

If the Sixers were to lose Butler in free agency -- and were in position to keep Harris and Redick -- it is possible that the Sixers could simply want the payroll flexibility and dismiss the potential idea of a sign-and-trade scenario for Butler.
