    If that's the case Joe Johnson is reincarnated at this point.

    Love isn’t worth gutting the team for.

    If LeBron goes to LA then I could see the Cavs trading Love for Anderson and a first. Then maybe they can sign Jordan or Melo for cheap. CP3, Harden, Gordon, Love, Capela, Melo/Jordan

    Or...

    I can dream that there isn't a cap and say Cousins and George.

    Melo and Jordan gotta take legit less than 5 million and George can take what Lebron has. I can see Melo taking that cut. But idk about Deandre. Especially when teams will throw maxes at him

    At this point, I don't think we need Melo, DJ is a local guy so might be happy just to be on the home team and probably would take a couple million. Looks like Blake might have been the issue in Clipper land after all...

    Everyone wants to play with Trevor Ariza. . . . Am I reading that right?

    Vague comment is vague

    Like others have said, it's hard to gauge what quality of players we're talking about, if Capela/Ariza/Gordon can be considered part of a "big 3 or 4". All-stars? Starters? Former champions? High caliber role players?

    Why do we want Melo? Melo for Ryno not happening has been a blessing in disguise.

    We are finally a destination team. Stop giving role players 8+ mill a year contracts.

    Does he know who the big six are? Or just that there's a chance the Rockets will get anybody to form it?

    Morey already says he's focusing on Lebron next summer... I just hope he doesn't completely gut the bench to sign him.

    EG is really good for us. We would've lost a lot of games if he didn't catch fire from the 3.

    If EG and Ryno gets moved to sign Lebron, then D'antoni will have to make sure 2 of our big 3 is always on the court.

    I don't get the fascination with K.Love. He hasn't been near the franchise player he was early when in Minny , since then he's been oft injured and always at the center of some drama - DO NOT WANT.

    I would like to see PG13 and a PF of the caliber of Thaddeus Young plus re-signing CP3 to a smaller contract. I would hate to see Ariza go. Re-signing Capela might not be possible, but a cheaper replacement in Noel( UFA) would be all right. It would be sad if TF can't retain GG, but I will be happy to retain EG, Tucker and the Prince. Is this possible with Harden as our undisputed franchise star?
    That is what DM is paid for, along with a lot of luck.

    Slow down, you move too fast
    You got to make the morning last
    Just kicking down the cobblestones
    Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy
    Ba da da da da da da, feelin’ groovy

    Hello, lamppost, what’cha knowin’?
    I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’
    Ain’t’cha got no rhymes for me?
    Doot-in doo-doo, feelin’ groovy
    Ba da da da da da da, feelin’ groovy

    I got no deeds to do
    No promises to keep
    I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
    Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
    Life, I love you
    All is groovy
