    So, they keep calling this a four team trade. It still was a three team, then a two team trade correct? I just hate when the media doesn't label things correctly. Obviously this is dependent on our trade exception, not that I expect to use it.

    Well the Nets gave the Pacers compensation so it must have been expanded to a 4-team trade

    I’m going of just this thread. You keep whining about the same shot over and over. No one is forcing you to be here. I could care less if you don’t know me. Ive been her way longer than you have. And being woke is a joke. Announcing you’re woke is the same thing as saying you’re a brainwashed overly sensitive beyatch. Grow some and become a man. Woke on that sweetheart.

    Pretty bizarre how the Pacers have officially announced that they have Levert, but we still haven't announced Oladipo...Are we still dealing?

    It kind of does though.

    Feigen is really carrying their jock strap. Exceptions last for a year.

    the hard cap won't be a concern next year. The Rockets should have taken their 2nd rounder out of the deal if it's really a 4 teamer now.

    Also theoretically the Rockets could have done a trade where team B gets Gordon and sends back a player up to the full amount of the TPE and the Rockets would have generated even a larger TPE. You could fit others into smaller exceptions

    Now the Rockets would only be able to take the smaller amount back into the big exception.

    It's a big asset that got significantly worse.

    That's a disappointment. I don't know if they would of used the trade exception but definitely sucks that they didn't get the larger one.

    ok, Feigen says it was 2 trades originally, which is why Allen/Prince were allowed to suit up last night on the CLE "Inactive Roster". So, somehow, they can retroactively make it one trade???

    I don't see the incentive for BKN to change, as they were done. Their part was cleared. They lost a 2nd round pick by helping fix the 2 trade scenario...and Rockets lost a larger TPE.

    The problem was with LeVert so even though they were “done” if LeVert couldn’t go through the physical Houston could rescind both parts

    Our hard cap expires before the trade exception does.

    We were talking about this last night @treyk3 lol. Such a weird trade how this happened. League is probably bending their own rules so they can get a Brooklyn vs Lakers final.

    If anything, I would think the League would bend them a bit to not let a trade like this fall apart. lol.

    is that your theory?? Feigen didn't say Rockets had leverage to force BKN to convert 2 trades into 1.

    Under the 2-trade scenario, BKN was done, and Allen/Prince suited up, which I'm nearly 100% certain means a trade was completed and cleared by the League Office. Maybe they were wrongly allowed to suit up and be put on the Inactive Roster???

    Also keep in mind that even thought Allen and Prince were in Cleveland, they were not allowed to play last night or practice today and the reason given was that somebody’s physical was incomplete.

    Incorrect. Simmons didn't want to leave Philly.

    This isn't like LeVert can't play...and BKN was actually in threat of losing Harden. Rockets weren't going to rescind a Harden trade based upon a 2024 2RP. Clearly LeVert can play. All it took was a future 2RP to get IND to take him.

    Plus, Rockets got screwed on TPE too, by converting 2 trades to 1.
