Carmelo Anthony should join the BIG3 league.

Wouldn't have to play defense and can shoot as much as he wants. Sounds like his kind of league.

Would be the best team in the East plus since we traded Butler he's not eligible for the Super Max now.

Nope he was the centerpiece of the Butler trade. The funny thing is Kris Dunn was a throw in and he really improved when given the playing time this year. I think T'Wolves gave up on him too soon.

According to Jason Lloyd Kyrie Irving never wanted LeBron James back in Cleveland. James made some comment while with MIA telling Kyrie keep doing what you're doing never know when I might be back. Kyrie never thought they needed James. Joe Vardon said there was two blow ups inside the locker room first week of the season following loses. Vardon also said James and his camp questioned Kyrie's toughness dealing with injuries accusing him of taking games off before he blew out in knee in the finals. LeBron was giving subtle hints in the media questioning Kyrie's toughness as well. Despite winning the title in 16 Kyrie and his people considered asking for a trade but according to Dave McMennimen. During the following year against the Raptors in the playoffs Kyrie didn't interact with aat practice for multiple days. After that season was when Irving decided it was time to end his time in Cleveland and went through with asking for a trade.

Hernangomez and Monk getting it done. Tony Parker on the way to shepherd the young'ens and maybe convince Batum to give a ####. I'm going to go ahead and start planning for a little time off work to try to make it down for a Charlotte-hosted 1st round Playoff series.

I too am looking forward to getting swept in the first round :thumbup:

NO still has the supermax option. Would be tough for him to leave that on the table.

Chicago is in the conversation since he's from there. You always get the rumors of the hometown guys going home. No different then the Phillies talk of Mike Trout coming in Fa

Who in the heck is he? all I've seen is he's 29 yrs old seems like a complete journeyman. Don't really understand this trade though

I think I'd rather pay Biyombo $34MM than pay Mozgov $32.5MM. At least the Magic get Jerian Grant?

Oh and 6ers 1st rounder Landry Shamet sprained his ankle in his first game. Of course he did.

Landry Shamet (right ankle sprain) is out for summer league.

He suffered the injury on Friday and will be re-evaluated in three weeks. The team gave him an X-ray, but there's no word of an MRI.

 

Some things just don't change.

Just watched Bagley and Ayton. I thought Harry Giles was the best player.

He certainly looked good and used his time off wisely. I thought Bagley and Ayton showed well. Suns need to get the ball to Ayton more but it's Summer League and that's not gonna happen. If Summer league is any indication, Bagley's gonna thrive in transition.

On the other hand, Dragan Bender looks every bit as bad (and completely lost) as his 1st summer league. He and Marquese Chriss have about as low of basketball IQ as guys in the NBA can have. I don't know if it's ideal to give up on a 20 year old but the guy's IQ is so low it's really embarrassing to watch. I wouldn't exactly be shocked if it happened or they demoted him to the G league. The size and athletic ability is nice but he doesn't use either to his advantage.....like ever.

He technically hasn't signed yet... still time to change his mind.

really would be an awesome troll job if he told Magic he'd join, Lakers sign a few of the Bad News Bears, and Lebron signs somewhere else, leaving Lakers in a mess

everybody that goes always talk about it being a good time. you think NBA would look to take more advantage of and have it in a few locations not just Vegas. pick a spot in the middle of the northeast and they could pull good crowds nightly

I’m buying all the Giles stock I can find. Since he actually plays defense he may get a lot of run this year.

Really hoping we see a Randolph-Bagley-Labissiere-Cauley/Stein-Giles lineup at some point.

I've watched one game this year. Trilogy vs Tri-State. McCants and Robinson were going at it all game. Mccants is such a frontrunner. Robinson hits the game winner and he grabs McCants pre-game mask. Looks like Kenyon Martin mom is on the court and he's yelling at her. Basketball/WWE

Any time you have the opportunity to throw 78 million dollars at a guy who gives you 17ppg on 38% shooting with no rebounding, passing, or defense, you have to take it.

Going to be a lot tougher to offer both Kyrie and Butler max deals with 44M in cap space instead of 64M.
