    I’m not sure I like the team hardcapped with a Butler addition to the Rockets. I mean, you probably make the deal, but I’m ok with it not happening.

    I feel like moves are coming, but now we wait and see.

    I’m glad this jimmy saga is over. Glad it didn’t get dragged for nothing and just made us wait.
    It’s golf this way we can keep the same guys or find better trades and keep our flexibility. Our team was good we should have won more games but we had a bunch of injuries and let a bunch of easy games slipped.

    Let’s see what morey does next but I’m not down coz we didn’t get that JB guy here.

    Agreed. I think it’ll be fine. Especially if Kawhi goes to clips and not lakers.

    I can't believe the Sixers took on Olynyk as well. Didn't realize he had so much value. Heat made out like bandits in this deal. Got out of tax. Dumped Dragic/Olynyk/Richardson (only asset). Now they have room for max salary next year with Winslow/Butler/Adabayo. Very solid move on their part didn't think the 6ers would oblige in taking Olynyk on board when they have Horford and Embiid.

    Took me about 15 minutes, but I am over it now.

    Let's regroup. See what we can do and move forward. Butler would have been great for us in terms of being another option in the 4th quarter, but oh well. We will live and die by James Harden, and that is our best shot. Hopefully, CP3 has a rebound year (I wouldn't bet any money on it), and we can get some value from Capela.

    Butler wanted to go to the Heat. More of a team built around him appealed to him. HE'd be the 3rd guy with Houston. Richardson to the Sixers, for them, a good young guard on a good contract & another player that gives them what will be a great defensive team. Elton Brand & Sixers got out from under this situation. It didn't work there. They wanted to bring Tobias back & did. They gave up a lot more.

    Yeah if you were following my twitter stuff today you knew I said this would happen easily. Contracts never end up being the hurdle people think they will be. Once Philly was open to a S&T it was just about Butler picking his spot.

    I honestly think that Butler might have used the Rockets to get Philly to the table on S&T scenarios and then bait and switched them with the Sixers.

    Is it really though? I hope you're right but i think Kawhi was all in in going back home, his uncle is pushing for it too...i would be surprised if he goes back to Toronto, hopefully he doesn't like Lebron but eh...not holding by breath at this point.

    I think the fix has been in all along for Kawhi. Chris Carter is the most plugged in with Kawhi in the entire media. He's pretty convinced he's going to the Lakers.
