    We just watched a superstar force a trade so I'm not sure it's easy to assume anyone will be playing for a specific team or that that team will be really good 4 years from now.

Think the deal makes sense for the Pacers, who are under the radar, but can play.
    Hell, even Pilch and I agree on this. You don't trade a Hall of Famer and the most valuable asset you get back will likely not be with your team next year.

    You can't be serious about trying to compare the Cavs losing Lebron and having nothing else to KD, Harden and Kyrie.
    The Nets will have their own circumstances and coincidences which break up their super team, that's what happens to super teams. All three of those dudes contracts are up in 2023 btw

    When I started this thread, I honestly didn't consider that we'd have a returning poster who would argue against the virtue of pick swaps. Geez.

    At the very least, the Rockets go into even years with an extra pick and odd years with a chance of getting a better pick.

    I understand, but some may be renewed or traded. The odds ANY of those picks are Top 10 are VERY, VERY low given what the Nets have.

    You don't even address getting a rental player back for a Hall of Famer.

    This is a terrible trade for Houston.

    I mean, 2025 & 2027 are so far away dude. No way KD is still playing and no telling on the other two

    But you have to think they with huge amounts of cap space, they won't replace them even decent players to believe those are valuable picks. Plus, you have to think those drafts will be good. What if the drafts are bad or even average.

    It's one thing if the draft picks are the cherries on top of something, but if they are the key to defining trade, you'd better be damn sure they will be good. If they could have gotten back picks from multiple historically bad teams, you'd have a better chance at making them good. Having only picks from a team that will have been in the playoffs for several years in a row is not a good thing,

    Barring catastrophic injuries, the Nets will have several good years in a row, owners who are willing to spend, are in the #1 media market country. Add to that if Steve Nash is a decent coach, he'll attract players and he's young and universally liked in the game.

    On top of that, the best piece of the trade is a rental player, who get injured a lot.

    This is a bad, bad trade. The only thing I can think of is the Sixers backed off.

    6. AD
    7 KD
    8. Chris Boucher (who?)
    9. Brandon Ingraham
    10. Paul George
    What’s the time frame here? These advanced stats rely on sample size to have value.

    man given what i’d expect was not a ton of leverage for houston, the nets gave up a shit ton

  16. #256
    It’s sort of like we get to see what it would have been like had KD, Harden, and Russ stuck together

    Bennett will have a great career at UVA but has a lower ceiling in postseason.

    This shit is the worst part of the NBA. I'm not interested in the soap opera BS. Whining and quitting your way into a Big 3 makes for a lame sport. Hopefully, the NFL does it's best to make this kind of thing a rare occurrence. We'll see with Watson, I guess.
