    If I was sure he’s re-sign I’d trade both, without that guarantee I wouldn’t be willing to give up capela and Gordon.

    If we did give up Gordon I feel like you could sign Ellington and be fine. Capela is what you can’t really replace, but here’s a concept that works:

    Eric Gordon to San Antonio
    Kawhi and dedmon to Houston
    Ryno to Atlanta

    As one transaction

    Capela sign and trade as separate transaction if need be.

    Then you trade Anderson for Bazemore/Dedmon and the team will be complete. Plus you sign b**** ass Isiah Thomas to come be the spark of the bench.

    According holic, you put Dedmon in Capelas spot and we won't see any drop in production. Yule C.

    There's no way that Kawhi is coming that cheap. Capela's potential is the only thing that would get SAS to even pick up the phone.

    I would love to get Dedmon somehow. Late bloomer - started playing basketball senior year, shot 35% from three last year!

    Sorry, that trade was transaction 1. You'd have to include a bunch of picks and the idea was you do transaction 2 as a Capela sign and trade if necessary.

    While I admire your dedication to the Otto Porter Movement, I am shocked that you haven't yet started referring to it as simply OPM.

    I got a notification from BR saying that Kawhi’s camp tried to hide him from the Spurs when they went to NY to visit him...that sounds like something out of a cartoon

    it’s so pathetic that the media has not been killing Kawhi for the nonsense he’s been pulling...

    Not sure if Dedmon is a complete Capela replacement (NOT), but he does now shoot the 3!

    No need. Harden/CP3/Kawhi/Tucker is enough. We go 4-on-5 against the rest of the league. Put Keith Jones in a uni if the league demands a fifth player.

    Thread title so misleading. The article basically gave every team a path. No news here
