I like Huerter but if a late 1st gets you Brogdon, then a better 1st from Sacramento should get you a lot more than Huerter.
Nothing to do with what I said.

I'm agreeing with you that Sacto shouldn't be giving up picks when they're perennially bad. Plus they have Fox, Davion Mitchell and Malik Monk.. If it's a late 1st from a contender, then it's fine.

Lakers and Nets engaging in a Westbrook/Irving trade with other exchanged assets.

Don't get why the Bulls signed another guard in Goran Dragic. Guys nearly 50 and we have like 6 or 7 guards now. We still have glaring issues but we've filled the 15th spot

It's a 1 year $2.9 million deal. We're probably going to make a trade.

Kevin Durant
Klay Thompson
Stephen Curry

Damian Jones
Anthony Davis
Lebron James

Malik has gone to the King's, Lonnie or THT will play the 2. But still the Warriors with KD have to be favourites.

Didn't know that he left. Too much sport over the weekend to pay attention to the NBA free agency, cheers.

I think it would be if Anthony Davis is fit. The Warriors would have to give up Wiggins, Poole, Wiseman & Moody etc to get Durant and have already lost Payton so wouldn't have any depth.

The Lakers have even worse depth. The Warriors won two titles with Durant. They just won without Wiseman. KD gives you way more than what Wiggins and Poole do combined. Every veteran free agent or that gets bought out would sign for them to ring chase.

It's a moot point though as KD to the Warriors won't happen. Kyrie probably ends up at the Lakers though because almost no other teams want to trade for him.

Klay isn't Klay anymore and Durant was a better player 3 years ago than he is today. Every season Lebron & Kyrie played together they made the Finals. Anthony Davis is a beast when on. In my opinion it would be a close series.

It makes total sense. It's the most Lakers move ever. And it will backfire just like getting Dwight, Nash and D'Antoni.. Or getting Westbrook.. It's also the most LeBron GM move ever. 25 games in, LeBron will probably be sick of Kyrie again and remember why they split in the first place.

LOL makes sense because its Lakers which makes ZERO basketball sense lol.

What will be funny is watching all Lakers fans that are pushing so hard for this Russ for Kyrie trade.... to be left with nothing next year when they flop, Kyrie goes and Lebron leaves for nothing. While Russ is not the best fit with Lebron, he shows up every day, he is durable. I think there is more return in trying to figure it out with Russ over a band aid 'solution' in removing one wrong and replacing him with another in Kyrie. It's so bad.

Lakers will never do this... but if I am the GM, I would move Lebron. Run with Russ and AD and fill the roster with 2 way wings. I believe that team would go further than a team as currently built. GM has no balls to do that though.

If I was LeBron I'd be engineering a way back to Cleveland. They could compete for titles for years if he went back there with the great young players they have.

They would have to give up those young players to get Lebron.

Not if he opts out next year and signs with them in Free Agency. A core of LeBron, Garland, Mobley, Allen etc would be tough to beat

I don't think a 39 year old Lebron will be good enough to win a title with that young team. I think this upcoming season will be his last chance at another title.
