Griffin is gonna have a hard time creating on his own..his game is so ugly I hate watching him play. In fact I hate watching him because he's ugly period lmao.

I dont know how Melo will put Houston or Cleveland over the top...the guy is a black hole, he's Bargnani level defender. And D'Antoni already had him in NY and look how that worked out.

We'll see how Lavine comes back from the ACL injury. What I'm scared of as a Chicago fan is that is going to take away some of his athleticism and hops. I agree he did have his best season before the injury. Dunn I didnt see much of him play so I have no opinion. Picking up that #7 draft pick and picking another soft euro PF/shooter when they already have one on their roster makes no sense. Unless they are letting Niko walk (which I doubt). Regardless Gar/Pax are idiots. I cant believe they passed up on Monk and DSJ
Griffin can still beat a lot of 4s off the dribble and still has some in the tank. He can still thrive off a basic pick & roll/pop with any pg.

Melo will have to adjust to any system he joins no doubt. He can still knock down catch n shoots, and can cause mismatch issues down low if they play it him at the 3. He just isn't first option material anymore imo.

Would be nice to see Lowry end up in MIN. He would thrive there more than here imo. Another solid 2k off season so far lol.

Rubio traded to Utah - Lowry a front man for Minnesota?

...butttt Rondo waived by the Bulls - cheaper option for Minnesota?

Lowry would be a scary good fit in Minnesota now, TWolves may be the team he can win the most games with in the next 2 seasons that will now give him a big contract.
Rondo would be an abysmal fit there.

With PG going to OKC, I can definetly see Gordon Hayward going to Boston now.. the East is depleted of stars and the west is just too stacked.

Aside from Lebron, IT, Kyrie and Giannis.. like who else do you have as a superstar in the east lol

^ i can see OKC bringing in another big name possibly... after they find someone to take on Kanter's expiring contract....tho that Adams contract... even tho he is a solid player... at $25 mill a year average is too much for what he gives
Out of two I'd rather get rid of Enes. Replace him with someone like Amir Johnson who is available and cheaper. Agree with Adams as well but hes the defensive anchor and is really good on the pick and roll which is hard to find these days with bigs... Id say just they could probably live with it. Besides the Paul George trade saved OKC atleast 3 million, Oladipos contract was 21 mil versus PG's 18m/yr lol

Wow ... Paul George has been traded to OKC
Pure desperation move by OKC for a 1-year rental. Wouldn't be surprised if OKC trades PG by the deadline when he doesn't commit on playing with Westbrook long-term.
