Sorry I meant Kawhi could be on the move....


Ohhhh... Yes yes. Heard Boston might be a possibility. That would be something.

Boston is a good idea. He should just go play on whatever team Kyrie is on for the rest of his career.

Rumors are the Cavs are trying to trade the #8 Pick in this years draft plus pretty much any combo of players not named Love or LeBron to pry Kawhi from the Spurs.

I will make the most :shocking: face ever, if Pop trades Leonard to the Lakers.

Think it would take at least top 3 pick + assets Cleveland doesn't have to get Kawhi.  Boston might have enough to swing a deal for him, but that might be short-sighted with Kyrie able to leave after this year  and Kawhi able to leave one year later.    :dunno:   It's going to be a very interesting offseason.

Shouldnt the Cavs be giving up assets to unload their non Bron/Live roster dreck onto somebody else?
This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

Why wouldn't they offer Love up in a deal for Kawhi?

I see Lebron going to Houston.... Maybe they let CP3 go to free up $. Team is constructed similar to the Cle championship teams, but with better players.... Dynamic PG in Harden, Capela is a rich mans version of Tristan Thompson. Ariza at wing, some glue guys on the bench. 


Bruins > Habs

I'm sure when the Spurs decline, He'll be offered.  :dunno:

 

Is Kevin Love, the 8th pick (in a good draft), next years 1st (probably a late one)  and lets say Jordan Clarkston (or whatever young player they want).....enough?

Just throwing it out for comparison.

 

The Chicago Bulls had traded three-time All-Star Jimmy Butler and the 16th overall pick Thursday night to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall pick.

 

The trade brings together Butler and Wolves coach and president Thibodeau, who coached the Bulls for five seasons before being fired in 2015. Butler gives Thibodeau the tough-minded scorer and hard-nosed defender that he has been searching for to complement a promising young core.

 

The Wolves paid a big price: Besides surrendering the lottery pick, they gave up a rising star in LaVine, who is coming off of a torn ACL and Dunn, last year's No. 5 overall pick.

I don't think so, but I don't think too much of Kevin Love, at least not a trade chip.  You have to LOVE the #8 pick.  next years first, and clarkson are worth almost nothing.  They'll(SA) get a better offer from someone else.  Lebron is moving on from Cleveland.

With the draft tonight we may see some Trades. 

 

Yesterday Hornets dealt Dwight Howard to the Nets for Timothy Mosgov, two second round picks and some cash.

 

Howard actually played well last year for Charlotte but he rubbed a lot the wrong way in the locker room and this was the last year of his contract anyway.....so.....meh, whatever.   Mosgov sucks, but he's cheaper and only two years on his contract.   I guess it works for both teams but nothing really to see here.

Latest "leans".

 

1. LeBron might actually stay in Cleveland

2. Kawhi is NOT staying with Spurs

3. Paul George might actually stay with OKC

 

Chris Paul, Boogie Cousin's etc wont be doing anything until the first three happens.
