    Multiple picks for Aaron Gordon who doesn’t even want to be here and will be a free agent a year from now? Stone, I’d advise u to reconsider...

    We aren't going to see a single NBA trade until tomorrow, aren't we?

    I'm opposed to giving up the 3 FRP's from this upcoming draft, if that means we are forfeiting the opportunity
    It reads like giving up the chance of acquiring a top 4 pick. Aaron Gordon will get mad and demand a trade to NYK or Boston. His trade value will drop immediately after he does this, probably considerably less than James Harden's. The roulette will continue to play imo.

    You know these GM’s and coaches. “We’ll convince him to love it here.”

    And maybe the roster with Aaron Gordon, Wood, Wall, KPJ, Ja’Sean Taint, Nwaba, Eric Gordon, et al, will be pretty good.

    Look, I’m grasping at straws here while punching F5 like a mother******.

    My counter would be Oladipo and a 2021 1st(Portland or Milwaukee) for Herro.

    All I care about is the potential to have two USC Trojans in Mobley & KPJ on the team. Insane.

    next year we’ll be discussing what we can get for Aaron Gordon in a trade before he leaves in free agency...I can already see it now

    sigh

    D Rock I’m all for you speaking Aaron Gordon into reality, but if it becomes three first round picks + Dipo you got to reel that one back in baby!

    Lonzo Ball is going to get paid, because he has shown he can shoot and at a minimum be a high end role player that you can win with. Supposedly he works very hard as well and is very professional.

    I have heard zero about John Wall being traded, not that means anything.

    Lol bra bra has returned in the form of “Jordan Carter”. I had a feeling he’d be back around trade deadline time.

    It is indeed F-5 season!

    Mr. Stone,
    Please don’t give up major assets for Aaron Gordon. You’ve been doing a great job stockpiling assets. Keep your eyes on that potential top 4 pick this year. Keep stockpiling!
