    It's going to be the latter. Last year's Finals had insane ratings and this year will only surpass that, because it's almost impossible that at least one of the Cavs and Warriors don't make the...

    Yeeeeeeeah no. Joe Ingles is going to get seriously paid this summer, because every exec in the league knows he's demonstrated 3-and-D skill. He's at least going to get a PJ contract (10-12m) and...

    assuming that DeMarre and Jonas can be traded away for nothing coming back (which is doubtful, but if anybody can do it, Masai can):

    First off, Westbrook and Harden being drafted fourth and third is early. If you get drafted in the top five of any year, as a general rule there's a good shot of being at least an All-Star player at...

    First off, Ross was averaging 22-24 minutes per game for the last few years until we traded him, and post-trade Powell's been averaging about 20, so it's not that big a difference.

    He's got an "actual NBA contract" right now. The size of his contract isn't something that motivates him to work less hard, and teams aren't going to want him more because he's being paid more money....

    The point is not simply to unload Carroll, but to get a nice piece or decent first-rounder back in the doing of it. Bebe definitely won't swing that, and Siakam almost certainly won't, and Cojo +...

    A thought:

    Carroll will be difficult to move, but not impossible. He can clearly still shoot the three and play some defense, and although $15m is too much for him, he'd probably still get $10m on...

    There wasn't much of a market for Nerlens Noel. They've been trying to trade him all season and because of his known anger towards the Sixers every other team was willing to lowball.
