It was a known fact that the Celtics refused to part with Jae Crowder, else they would have gotten Jimmy Butler or Paul George last year at the trade deadline for their playoff run.

I don't see why that would have changed. So I take the reports with a grain of salt.

JJ Redick to the Sixers for 1-year, 23mill. I am going to have to start watching more Sixers, OKC games next season.

With Iggy resigned, looks like all the important Warriors will be back. Would have been interesting if they had lost him to another team.

TWolves are doing a Bulls reunion, 1st Butler, now Taj Gibson, Rose must be next if he accepts a bench role to Teague.

The NBA needs to be putting together an emergency meeting right now to abolish conferences effective for the 2017-2018 playoffs.

It will be another boring playoffs next year without major shakeups.
There is only one team that can make it to the NBA finals in the East and everyone knows which team that is.

Unless Lebron gets hurt or traded next season.

Stephen Curry signed the richest contract in NBA history Saturday, a five-year, $201 million deal with the Golden State Warriors.

Interesting article below pretty much justifying he is worth every dollar (which I personally agree) and also insights from others as well in terms of value he brings to the organization in a few ways.

Is NBA star Stephen Curry still underpaid at $40 million a year?

"Steph Curry’s record $201 million contract is actually a massive discount. 5-year projection is $296 million worth of production."
"How valuable is Stephen Curry? In 2010 Lacob bought Warriors for $450 million. Now worth $2.6 billion."

Kevin Durant took a massive paycut to re-sign with the Warriors.
2 years, 53 million.

Durant is being paid less per year than Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan.

Durant takes a 9 million dollar pay cut for this upcoming year. Not a small amount of change.

This is where, the player needs to have more of a business acumen, and pressure management to pay the luxury tax, not take pay cuts. That's why someone like LeBron, like him or hate him for meddling, he puts the screws on management to get into the luxury tax. You don't think Cavs owners are laughing and raking in the $$$ even though they didn't win the Championship this year. They most certainly are.

KD shouldn't have offered a discount. He was key to this Championship. If Warriors owners want more Championships, make them pay that luxury tax.

^Not bad, I prefer Hayward over PG. Celtics could be interesting next year

Damn, Celts keep adding talent without having to give up key assets to other teams. All this while they continue hoarding nice picks for another big move.

Apparently Hayward hasn't made up his mind yet. A decision might not be made today actually.

Maybe he is torn between the Jazz and Celtics?
