    In 2016, we were geared up to introduce Eric and Ryan in a smaller press conference. At the end of the conference an extension was announced.


    In 2017 prior to introducing CP3 we made sure James was locked up even longer but it wasn't part of the big introduction.

    So, Russ is being introduced. No one but media is allowed. It's very small.

    I'm going to guess Eric will have an extension announced tomorrow. I'm hoping we can also figure out Iman prior to the press conference but I doubt that comes to fruition.

    Eric is in Houston today so that definitely adds to the possibility that an extension has been struck.

    Additionally, Morey is very cheerful on social media today.

    That's pretty tough to pull off prior to a press conference but I'd love to see it.

    I have a feeling it's this.

    Reason is, it sounds like they rushed, picked a quick date (Friday) just announced 2 days ago, for the press conference.

    Might be something in the works and announced Friday night or Saturday.

    Just my guess.

    Morey probably makes a move late August or early September. Just before camp. Hopefully for Covington

    Morey is the wizard. He will do something. I don’t think the roster is complete.

    I don't believe this will happen. At all. But Wiggins + RoCo for Capela + Gordon + (a bunch of minimum guys: I used 4) + 2020 and 2022 FRPs works. Don't they hate Wiggins's deal immensely?

    Still not as good as DeAngelo Russell, but Capela & Gordon and getting out from under Wiggins has non-negative value.

    I think there'll be a surprise. Can't imagine what it'll be.
