    Guess the Mavs should've held on to all that trade filler. ;)

    Can they award Stone Executive of the Year for a two-year old trade?

    I just realized after seeing this post that Ben Simmons is our new tank commander.

    Nets were relentless with the hit pieces after Harden left

    just imagine what we’re about to learn about Kyrie’s crazy ass

    also interested in what info they release about KD

    Nah, unless they somehow nab a young stud (not likely) I'd guess their main objective would be to recoup as many draft picks as possible to aid in a rebuild from ground up.
    So even if the get a few capable vets in return I wouldn't be surprised to see them sold off for more draft capital in short order.

    Being on the floor with Butler and Adebayo would be crazy too.

    Huge opportunity for the Rockets to be predatory here.

    Nets completely bent over with none of their future picks. We should compromise and take our prize today and give them their future back.

    To Suns
    Durant

    To Rockets
    Mikal Bridges
    Convert 2023 Nets pick from a swap to outright right to the pick

    To Nets
    Brown
    Burke
    Holiday
    Nwaba
    Crowder
    All remaining Nets picks returned (maybe not one of the later ones stays with the Rockets)
    Draft capital from the Suns


    KPJ / TyTy / Nix
    Green / Christopher / Bird
    Bridges / Eason / Tate
    Jabari / Garuba / KMJ
    Sengun / Boban

    + 3 unprotected picks in this loaded draft.

    could you convert the swap into a pick? - wouldn't that violate the "2 1st round picks in a row" prohibition?

    Harden you magnificent b*stard! Went somewhere the Rockets get picks and not pieces. Implodes that team. Goes to Philly to re-form the Rockets. He imploded Brooklyn so bad KD wants to leave. He wants Tucker and EG. More pick(s) for EG. Better picks from Brooklyn. Comes back in 3 years as the 7th man and a Rockets Championship. He had this all planned from the beginning...or something.

    This is definitely not a playoff team. Just big names that don’t fit well together on the court.

    Their 3 core guys all struggle with staying motivated to play basketball in general. Simmons and Kyrie will miss 20-30 games each. Neither has been able to stay on the court over the past 3 season.

    What eastern team are they beating for a playoff spot?

    On a side note has there ever been a more weak minded elite player than KD? This would be the 2nd time he's packed up and decided to join the best team in the league. That's pretty insane to think about.
