Thread: Official 2021-22 NBA Offseason Thread - Bill Russell dead at 88

    Probably a guy faking an injury or tanking if he knows he has his next spot lined up. But between load management and Ben Simmons I doubt it matters much at this point anyway.

    Agreed, and also don't KD and Green not get along? If I'm Kerr, standing pat appears the way to go.

    Think the Nets ultimately cave and accept the Ayton/Bridges/all of the picks package from the Suns, provided the Suns and Nets are able to weave their way through the jungle of hard cap, base year compensation, and myriad other cap-isms that will come into play in light of the sign-and-trade mechanism with respect to Ayton.

    Yeah, Ayton + Bridges + picks is probably better than what they'll get elsewhere. But then the Suns would need to look for some rim protection on D.

    What I don't really get is the Kyrie for Westbrook speculation. If I'm the Nets and moving on and essentially rebuilding around Bridges, Ayton and Harris, I'm certainly tired of Kyrie, but why would I want a past his prime Westbrook?

    That would surprise me at this point. Before the Bridges fiasco I think they would have entertained losing Rozier and suffering through Westbrook to get out from under Hayward's contract faster, as all are ancillary on-court to LaMelo and Bridges. But assuming they aren't resigning Bridges, they'll have plenty of cap room for whoever, and would probably prefer to keep Rozier and Hayward.

    Is Westbrook really that bad? He still has to have soem good stuff he brings to a team. I think he was just a terrible fit with the Lakers. If you put him on a team with shooters surely he can be a decent help.

    expiring contract, you set $47 million on fire so that you can spend another 47 on whatever you want later

    Edit: nm just realized Kyrie is expiring too. maybe you take Russ cause heíll actually play?

    Official 2021-22 NBA Offseason Thread - Jazz trade Gobert to T-Wolves

    I really hope Kenny Lofton, Jr. makes a roster. Dude is going to be fun to watch.

    And I posted that before a beautiful turnaround jumper.

    Official 2021-22 NBA Offseason Thread - Free Agency and Summer League

    Paul Reed is an amazing Summer League player.

    Chet and Giddey coming up next vs. the Jazz.

    LaRavia had 13/4/2 for the Grizz. He goes against Chet tomorrow.

    Itís funny that for all the worries about how Chet will do against bigger players, heís been matched up against Tacko Fall for much of the 1st quarter. Heís bodied up Fall well and had a block to force a jump ball.

    Chet with 13 pts, 3 blk so far. Not sure if Iíll check back in on this one. He definitely looks good.

    Chet looks like a skinny Dirk with defense so far.

    Westbrook is a terrible fit for anyone who already has any sort of ball handling option, though he can still be the best player on a bad team. But if you are the Hornets, you want the ball in LaMelo's hands as much as possible. LaMelo needs the ball more, not less.

    Chet looked like a video game player.

    People forget how skinny Dirk, Durant, AD, Giannis etc were their rookie seasons. Throw in guys Chet will be fine.
