    Such a gut punch after they fought back and started to impose their will on the Rams. Sadness was felt that day.

    Haven't been impressed so far with the trades. Feels like a bunch of underperforming teams selling 75 cents on the dollar for their most prized assets. Say what you want, but the Harden trade looks like a major haul when compared to what teams are getting for all star talent right now.

    -Robinson, Achiuwa in potential Lowry trade
    -Would prefer to hold onto Iguodala; see value in him
    -Kelly Olynyk would be sent to make salaries match; possibly Avery Bradley
    -Nunn may not go to Toronto but 3rd team
    -Either/or: Andre or KZ & Kendrick Nunn
    -Herro not in deal
    -Toronto was trying to create leverage today
    -Miami feels confident about Lowry landing in Miami

    Yeah, it's not just the actual draft picks, but it's the trade option. Best believe the next young star looking to force their way out is heading to OKC. Towns, Tatum, Booker, OKC automatically is the highest bid.

    Overcomplicated protected pick and an assistant coach for Dipo

    I just don’t see why they would give up that much for a 35yr old Lowry and not Dipo who is 28 and basically is already committed to them. I know he’s injury prone but damn he ain’t a 35yr old Lebron

    IF true, then Miami has only Dipo left as an option.

    If the Sixers wouldn't give that up for Harden, there's no way they'll do it for Lowry.

    Um, they would have absolutely done that for Harden considering Simmons isn’t in that proposal.
