    That's pretty crazy that he turned down $20+ million a year, and is now wanting to be able to lock himself in at under $10M. Granted, that's about what he's worth, but to think you let that much money slip through your fingers. Gut-wrenching.

    His production is almost identical to KPJ's with six more years of experience. How on earth do you turn that contract down?!?!

    Agree! The old saying "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth." comes to mind. For you younger folks, here's the meaning...
    • don’t be ungrateful when you receive a gift
    • do not be critical of a gift you receive
    • do not refuse something good that is offered
    • do not be unappreciative of or question a gift you have received.

    Obviously no the smartest guy on the block.

    Needs to fire his agent

    Dennis Schroeder wants more Shot Attempts and be a Starter.

    I think the Celtics can provide it, but Dennis needs to produce.

    The New York Knicks have renounced the free agent rights to Frank Ntilikina.

    Young PG
    Wingspan: 7′ 1″
    Height: 6′ 4″
    Weight: 200 lbs
    Age: 23 years (July 28, 1998)

    Should HOU have interest?

    Love this kid.....

    ...but for last seasons team.

    Unless Rockets move 2 of EGo, House, Augustin, Wall, Khyri then there is zero room for another guard.

    Don't hate kicking the tyres on him. Can he be a pass first PG or is he just a stopper? I feel like we need someone to get our scorers some easy buckets.

    I keep seeing they should fire their agents but I bet anything their agents likely advised them to take those deals and it was probably Oladipo and Schroeder’s egos that said no.

    Every one of those teams are legit contending for a ring.

    Except for GSW.
