    Let's keep r tweeting this to maximize his trade value.
    We're not contending, so don't need a 3rd wheel type guy for this season (or next!). We need to clear the logjam at SG anyway, (leave the space for the young guys to fight over?) And Ego has a contract that would be nice to shed.

    His value might be as high as it will get at the moment. Pull the trigger on a trade

    Because Stone is a newbie and should stay away from cutthroats like Ainge and Riley.

    Stone shat the bed on the Harden trade, he's not ready for Ainge.

    Rockets get: Mathews (probably to waive) and Markennen (to resign)
    Bulls get: Kuzma
    Lakers get: Tucker

    I really can't tell if Oladipo is barely worth a trash draft pick or if he's a top flight SG with decent trade value. Would Boston do a deal straight up for Smart? His salary is not an easy work-around. Who is he at the top of the list for anyway?

    Why would Bulls trade Markkanen for Kuzma and why would the Lakers trade Kuzma for the corpse of Tucker.

    Even if somehow the Bulls are interested, Lakers would just take Markkanen for themselves.

    Yep, the NYK have Det's '21 2nd round pick and Philly has the Knicks '21 2nd rounder. So the Rockets add another first, a pick at the top of the 2nd and another mid second. They also add Knox who could use a change of scenery but was a 13/5 player as a 19 year old rookie when he played mostly at the 4. Even acknowledging he hasn't lived up to his draft position, he is still only 21 and is shooting 38% from distance this season. Definitely a reclamation project worth checking out IMHO.

    PJ Tucker posts about Bam Adebayo being snubbed. Weird guy to choose. Trade him to Miami already.

    Achiuwa and Harkless for PJ and Ben.

    Or Tucker to 76ers for Thybulle, will take either option now.

    We both know we won’t get Thybulle as badly as we’d like him.

    Thybulle is not getting many rotation minutes.

    What Doc is saying about him (building him up) and how he is using him just do not jive.

    Are you watching 6ers right now, proof is in the pudding.

    Marky Mark is about to get paid and Kuzma has a more team friendly contract. Lakers have a salary cap and two pretty good frontcourt options maybe you've heard of them. The Lakers want Tucker for the same reason every contender should want Tucker.

    So that's why.

    He’s getting minutes again. 23 MPG in the last 10

    I have a bad feeling we will all be disappointed with the trade deadline results.

    Its halftime now and Thybulle only has 9 minutes.

    That makes him the 8th man.

    He will drop out of rotation again when Seth and Maxey return.

    Tucker is a starter, at the very least first guy off the bench.

    I sincerely hope you’re right. Thybulle for PJ would make me immensely happy.

    He wasn't even discussed in Harden trade.

    There's a reason why Kuzma has a more team friendly contract, it's because Markkanen better. Dude is averaging 19/6 on 51/40/84 shooting split. You really expect Bulls to give him up for Kumza?

    We're gonna act like PJ Tucker ain't washed AF? His value is likely a second round pick.
