If Leonard comes we’ll bet LA wins a title within 3 years. 2 dominant players on both sides of the ball - yeah I’ll back that. Any trade still leaves the Lakers with talent. Cupboard won’t be bare. Then they can mid level to their hearts content with players to fill out the rotation. 

LVSportsbook has

Will the Lakers win a championship by 2022?

Yes +200

No -250

I wouldn't take that because there are too many unforeseen variables in three years.  Yes sounds like a great number for your opinion, but having a book hold your money for that long is dumb

So Dwight Howard wants to join Lebron and the Lakers now. This is such excellent news:

I mean, how does an organization let their team become a train wreck in 2-3 days?

Oh dear, sweet 7 lb. 4 oz infant baby Jesus, please, please make this happen.

Come on LeBron! I know that you can get through to him.

Sounds like Kyrie to the Wolves is almost a done deal.

Source? Price?

With all these one year and option contracts, free agency next year is going to be nuts.

Wilson Chandler to Sixers.

@BobbyMarks42 

Trading Wilson Chandler to Philadelphia will save Denver $50M in combined salary and luxury tax. The Nuggets tax bill now drops from $51.3M to $14.3M. The $12.8M Chandler contract can be traded immediately without any restrictions because Philadelphia acquired him with room.

Thibs chance to get Deng back :excited: 

Some dude went on Colin Cowherd's show a couple weeks ago and said that Kyrie/Butler to Brooklyn is in play next summer, so I think it's pretty much a lock at this point.

At first glance Sixers should have gotten more than just a 2021 2nd (and a 2nd round swap) for helping the Nuggets save $50M in tax (though Chandler is a decent piece to be fair), but I’m here for the old school Hinkie-type trades.  Process is back baby!

I should have known better than to click on something from Bleacher Report. Garbage news. A free agent would like to be signed? Who knew?!

Makes that contract with Barton a bit more palatable too.  Looks like he'll be playing a lot of minutes at the 3 this season.

The Hawks, Bulls and Kings have waited patiently through all this with tons of cap space.  We've hardly even heard them mentioned in rumors.  It doesn't seem like teams are eager to trade first rounders for cap space which many thought might happen.  (Maybe for multi-year bad contracts but no team wants to buy those.)

Perhaps they'll start playing when the restricted free agent market open on Friday.  Not too much left on the unrestricted side but we've still got a lot of restricted guys available like Capela, Smart, LaVine, Exum, Parker, Nurkic, Harrell, and Hood.  Although most will probably end up staying with their current teams.

There are still a few teams that really need to move salary, but yeah the going rate for that seems to have dropped. I haven’t read much in terms of reported interest for any of those restricted guys except LaVine, and I’m a little skeptical of even those reports.

how the hell are the nuggets going to stay out of the tax?  who is going to take these contracts?  

trade chandler into Sixers' cap space?  Please?

well, i was pretty sanguine about this idea, but after making that post I was researching more about Chandler and seems like he really can't defend the 3 anymore, so I am not so thrilled with this anymore.  he's certainly not terrible, but I don't how much better he really makes them.

sounds like maybe they really do like him, so not really just a dump in their eyes, though you would still think they could extract more value given that he is not really essential to the Sixers.

Wish the Suns waited it out too. Nothing against Ariza, but $15 mil for a 33 year old a clearly rebuilding team? Chandler/Dudley aren't enough veteran leadership hogging up cap space while sitting the bench? In the neighborhood of $40 mil in 2018 for just those 3. SMH. 

With as tight as money is around the league, go absorb a contract and get a young guy and/or pick in the process.  Particularly with the gaping hole at PG.

The Chicago reporters who first mentioned the Kings' interest in LaVine have backed off that now.  There is a rumor about the Bulls wanting Parker.  No idea if that's true.

I’d definitely be trying to buy low on Parker right now. That could be a steal.

Wizards get Howard.  People seem to hate him now but I think it's a good move for the Wizards.  I haven't seen the terms but I assume it's for one year.

Edit: One year, tax-payer's MLE ($5.3 million, I think)

Ah #### I read tjs witty edit first.

Def keep seeing they want to run the East somewhere. Brooklyn seems as plausible as any.

Exum back to the Jazz with a 3/33 deal.

High upside signing but seems like another overpay.

Dwight Howard to Wizards.  Now we have a PG that can't shoot and a C that can't hit the rim.  Solid.

To be fair to Howard, he is talented enough to be an all-star even in 2018. He averaged 16.6 pts/12.5 rebs/1.6 blks in 30 mpg last year. He's still a very good player. The problems aren't talent, it's that his teammates hate him and he thinks he is much better than he is. If he was humble and played within himself he would still be a prized free agent.

Well, part of it is the effort he gives on the defensive end of the court too.

I don't mind it and the Sun's need to start to try to make the playoffs and figure what they with their good young pieces. It is time to see what works and what they need to add. They aren't rebuilding any more, they have pieces time to see if they work or if they have to start all over.

And it isn't some terrible contract that will handicap them for years either.
