    Good choice. Covington is not playing as good as before so he can get minutes. Glad he’s not in the West too ;)

    Rockets had no room for dessert.

    If they win it all, maybe they'll get cupcakes in the offseason.

    Covington just signed a big contract. I’m sure they’re telling him to play through it

    It’s a playoff signing, not a future one necessarily ;)

    Glad Belly went to an East team. Spurs fans gonna be salty losing out on Belly. They were hoping to nab him. I am sure OKC and GSW were interested as well.

    Yep. I was worried he'd go back to San Antonio.

    SA is wack there losing their clout around the league.

    First lamarcus the offseason wanting out because of his differences with POP now apparently Kwai wants out.

    It’s easy to win for 20 years when u have a top 10 player off alltime in Duncan.

    With it without Kwai their on the decline. They have to much money in guys that are not real difference makers. Guys like Mills, green, gasol all making 10+ a year.

    I know it’s a cardinal sin to go against the Spurs and pop but there done. Nobody wants to go to SA in FAs they don’t have the assets to get anyone in trade.

    The run is over.

    Really happy Belli went to the Sixers instead of a rival however let me just say Sixers are a big joke now that they dumped Hinkie and replaced him with Colangelo. Sixers just spent 4 years doing the process and in that time got Noel, Simmons and Saric, basically they got a decent player every year under Hinkie. Everything was going well suddenly the ownership fired HInkie right as everything was going to come together, it's so dumb like if Leslie Alexander fired Morey the year before he hired MDA clearly ownership had no trust in Hinkie's vision.

    And then Colangelo the new GM just basically wasted all the gains done by the Process, first he lost Noel for essentially nothing and then he traded UP to get a scrub! Celtics must be laughing every night how they got a future draft pick for nothing. Wouldn't surprise me if the Sixers are back in the bottom of the NBA in a couple of years.

    Sixers aren't a joke for replacing Hinkie. There is more to being a GM than tearing things down several consecutive years to draft high. Hinkie was in over his head. They could have dumped him sooner. Why has no other team hired Hinkie?

    Drafting Embiid, Okafor and Noel was dumb. Only one of them is worth 10 cents. That's on Hinkie.

    The trade with the Celtics "will live in imfamy". Colangelo may not live that one down unless the Sixers win a championship.

    Hinkie's non-compete didn't end until June of 2017 (right before the draft), very few front office don't a GM by then (and I don't know if he'd want to go to Cleveland given his most recent departure).

    76ers ownership forced hinkie to draft Okafor over Noel, then fired him anyway the next year for their mistake:

    http://www.phillyvoice.com/reports-...e-take-jahlil-okafor-over-kristaps-porzingis/

    Hinke fleeced the Kings, and got their 2019 first, also got the 2018 Lakers 1st (before CoAngelo traded it away). Drafting Noel and Embiid was questionable, but you take the best player available.

    If the owner made the decision to draft Noel, that's on him.
    OK. Now we get to see what other teams think of Hinkie. He'd probably be great as an assistant GM.

    Colanglo sucks.

    He’s going to mess everything Hinkie did up.

    Hinkie so called process worked I don’t understand why ppl hate it. He got embiid saric and Simmons by trusting the process.

    He scooped up Covington who turned out to be a steal of a pick up.

    I don’t get why the 76rs fired him (maybe adam silver forced there hand)

    I’d much rather do what the 76rd did and suck bad to get top 3 picks 4-5 years in a row. The odds are in your favor that you will get atleast 1-2 franchise guys and that’s what they did.

    The process clearly worked. They have the best center in the league and Simmons who looks like a future allstar by next season.
