    NBA Discussion

    Knicks trade away Porzingus just to be able to go after two Max players and get scared about offering Durant the Max. Now get a bunch of decent players but whiff on any stars.

    The Pelicans will be good and interesting next year.
    Bucks will be different.
    Happy Pistons got Derrick Rose. Will help as another scoring option if he stays healthy. They need their young guys to improve.
    Golden State loses Durante, Andre and get Deangelo Russell which surprises me. Klay still likely to miss the majority of the year.
    Philly getting Horford and will be different with no Reddick.
    Boston loses two but gains Kemba. Should be strong but probably not a true contender.
    Lakers and Clippers trying to steal Kawhi. Raptors need him back. Will really hurt both LA teams if they wait and miss out on everyone else.
    Miami somehow is getting Butler but the sign and trade needs to work out.
    The Nets were huge winners getting Kyrie and Durant although Kyries leadership isnít good and Durant could miss the whole year.
    Suns getting Rubio was a surprise and Indiana shook things up and will be interesting if Oladipo is heís healthy.
    Darren Collison retiring and Muritic going back to Europe changed a few things.

    Over 40% of the league were free agents. Probably biggest number ever and the landscape has changed. Not sure who the top teams are after the dust settles. I think Memphis made good moves for the future but will be bad.

    Miami really aggressive. Moving Whiteside for space to sign Butler. Miami has traded away many future picks and still isn’t a contender. This move gets them into the playoffs but I don’t see a great team. It’s always nice to get stars in a star dominated league though.

    Still waiting for Kawhi. Not sure about Boogie either.

    Lots of roster creators doing major work in 2K. I think Jaiveer1717 for PS4 is good. Can’t remember the spelling.

    Can’t believe how much the NBA landscape has changed going into next year. Seems wide open.

    If true what a slap in the face for Vancouver Grizzlies fans. Word has it that this season Memphis will wear the teal blue Vancouver Grizzlies inaugural jersey. As a person who loved going to games and had our team stolen this feels like another stab in the back from the NBA.

    I remember reading about the Grizzlies and Stern talking about them. Sort of a perfect storm in terms of losing the team. Our dollar was bad so it made operations expensive. And then they just drafted poorly and had a poor team. Was a shame to lose the team. I’m sure Seattle is still upset too.
