    Nets once upon a time in a deal with the Suns turned Marbury into Jason Kidd and multiple finals trips now they're serving up Phoenix multiple finals trips with Kevin Durant for...Mikal Bridges?

    There is a price for every player including Barnes

    However is

    Boucher/Birch
    Siakam
    Durant
    OG/Nwaba
    Freddy V/Trent

    a contender? I'd say yes

    I mean, how could they be aggressive when they have nothing to offer? They must let that horrific package "centered" on Westbrick stay long enough on the table until it's roted and the Nets can no longer take the putrid smell and just decide to move on from Irving. Now, regarding Durant, the only aggressive offer I can think of is something Godfather-ish that the Nets "cannot refuse".

    I hope this ends the "building a super team" era, so teams can go back to building through the draft like they used to do it.

    I hope they build another one and have it fail also. I hope they never learn (as long as we don't try to build one ourselves).

    The more stars tied up on losing superteams, the better it is for the rest of the league (IMO).

    Athletic suggested this trade . Rockets returning the picks back and helping nets rebuild. Sounds like a good plan indeed.

    We give up Eric Gordon, Kenyon Martin Jr, and 6 picks and all we get is a guy I don't even want who also happens to be demanding a max contract? Yeah. I'm definitely going to pass on that. Somebody has to be joking.

    I mean Ayton top 5 center in league. Those picks are not guaranteed to be top 10. Nets will bank on cashing in on building around Simmons with a subpar playoff team, cashing in on KD, Irving. So maybe keep few, but still trying to get Ayton is plan.

    There’s a gap between making a reasonable ayton offer (one protected first) and the utter garbage suggested here

    imagine giving BK their picks back for Deandre Ayton

    Ayton making 30+ mil or anywhere close to that is negative value

    I’d rather do C by committee than to have 30 mil/yr invested in a C like Ayton

    Iko was smoking that powerful kush coming up with that idea, and whoever endorses it should seek help

    Does it even mean much to be a top 5 C in the league today?

    Trading 2 positive assets and 6 picks for a non-all star that is about to ask for the max contract is never a good return.

    The value for Harden when the Rockets first traded for him is significantly less than this offer, and Harden was far more proven than Ayton despite playing only 3 seasons.
