    Just a precursor to letting us know a trade didn’t materialize. #excuses #taxsavings

    I can see Morey trading Gordon for some draft picks that we have lost.... I personally don’t like but see that a possibility.

    If you really need to fill the roster with Vet Min, I rather we sign Luc Mbah a Moute. I know Luc might not be 100% health. But Injury can be improved by time, where IQ can not.

    If by "not100% healthy" you mean "so injury torn may never play another NBA game" then you are correct, sir. He played 4 games last year. Let it go.

    I'd have loved to add JaMychal Green. But he wanted to return to the Clippers. He was never an option.

    I understand not wanting to give up tucker for jimmy last year since they weren't sure they'd get him to sign an extension... and it turns out he'd rather be in Miami, so actually morey should get credit for dodging that bullet. the wolves wanted ego/tucker/pick and we would've been left with spare parts from Miami in a S&T.

    in general I think ego/tucker/capela are considered better than average starters. ego and capela are borderline stars, very underrated by fans. they should only be traded for a legit all star.

    all are great fits for James and our system. yet all have a good reason to be traded. ego due to contract, tucker due to age/decline, capela due to centers having less importance in our system.

    No one is going to trade an all star for Gordon expiring contract.

    I think Rockets can aquire both AG and RoCo.

    Via separate trades or 4 team trade:
    *Smart, EGo, 1 BOS FRP to ORL.
    *Capela, Clark, rights to Llull, 2 HOU SRP to BOS.
    *Shump SnT, Langford, 2 HOU FRP to MIN.
    *Aaron Gordon, Robert Covington, Robert Williams to HOU.

    Lol
    After your trade, 4 Firsts and 7 second round picks are all gone.

    Celtics need 2 addl first rounders from any team to make it work. Which team?
    Celtics don’t need Clark, Llull and 2nd picks.

    Center piece is 4 Firsts, not Paul.
    They want picks, not Paul.
