re: If we just lose Anderson and Gordon, what cap space would we have? - corndeaux
Definitely agree. 2nd deal was good for him and you got a 1st out of dumping Asik....

[quote]Dipo isn't much better than lemonhead?[/quote] So come on... [quote]don't think he's THAT much better.[/quote] The THAT being so much better that you give up a lottery pick (a likely top 8 pick) for him. He's just not. You're paying that price to get a D and 3 guard. No thanks....

re: BSS Trade Podcast Eastern Conference Edition - corndeaux
[quote]aren't picking 5th unless they actually try to tank[/quote] Maybe. Maybe not. Davis gets hurt, things get ugly in a hurry. Plus, right now we have no clue who will rise/fall in the draft. Lillard was not a top 10 pick and Barnes was a top 3 guy that year months ahead of the draft. [quo...

re: BSS Trade Podcast Eastern Conference Edition - corndeaux
[quote]Top 3 protected 1st, Cole and Babbitt to Orlando for Oladipo[/quote] That pick is a lot for Oladipo. Nice player, but if they are picking around 5-7, I think they have a good shot of finding a guy just as good. Would you take Oladipo over Hield, Brown, Murray or Dunn? Batum is unlikely,...

re: 9 Days to Deadline: What do you want? - corndeaux
[quote]Dallas and Portland[/quote] The Rondo deal is a legitimate disaster for the Mavs. Crowder (excellent 2 way wing on a cheap deal), a mid first (possibly lotto pick), and Wright (who was killing teams for them) for Rondo and a gentleman's sweep last year is embarrassing. That they are a 6 se...

[quote]Teams that need guys to make a run typically pay a high price.[/quote] And how did those moves work out for those teams? Other GMs want to emulate those deals? Also, the entire league just obliterated Kevin Love for slow feet and being exposed on defense. Anderson won't fair any better....

[quote]Toronto HAS to trade for someone if they want to add talent for next year though[/quote] Maybe? They have a top 10 pick. They can also move guys this summer as FA starts to take more shape. Lots of questions in Toronto about just where they are going. There have been rumblings for some...

[quote]Evans injury has to force the Loomis/Demps hand, especially with Ryno. He's really the only valuable asset we have, and must get something in return. [/quote] I dunno. Feeling like they are "forced" to make a move got them into this mess in the first place. I'm for moving Anderson ...

re: What about Whiteside? - corndeaux
[quote]actually makes more sense(to me at least) to start getting first rounders now to take advantage of the cap spike and avoid conflicts during ADs max.

re: Just for fun: NBADraft.net and DraftExpress recent mocks. - corndeaux
Jonathan Tjarks on Robert Carter III of Maryland. Not a lottery pick, but a guy, according to Tjarks, worth keeping an eye on in the 2nd round. [link=(http://patternofbasketball.blogspot.com/2016/02/robert-carter-iii.html)]LINK[/link] [quote]Carter is a prototype small-ball 5 A generation a...

re: Stat of the day. - corndeaux
Yeah. This team's problem is that it just doesn't fit together. You can play Anderson, but you need defensive cover. You can play Asik, but you need 4 shooters with him. And it's not just those 2 guys either. Injuries expose this exponentially, but its still there with #fullsquad. They just ...

re: Which Ryno trade do you like the best? - corndeaux
Nate Duncan trade deadline pod part 2 had Anderson to Toronto for their own 2016 1st, 2017 2nd, Scola, Nogueria, Bennett. Not an awful deal for the Pels, Nogueria might be useful down the line. With Derozan being UFA, I don't see them giving up a likely lottery pick to get Anderson, also an UFA. ...

re: How many minutes per game do AD and Jrue play together? - corndeaux
[quote]I could have sworn that Joel said something like 15mpg last week[/quote] 19MPG since January 1, which is the same as Anderson/Davis. Holiday/Anderson/Davis is the best trio for the Pels and is only at 15 MPG since 1/1. Another potent trio is Jrue/Evans/Davis- only 9MPG (tons of injury nois...

[quote]If you take 9.7% of the current cap, you get 6.8 million. All the sudden Asik's contract looks reasonable. [/quote] It's not that the deal is unreasonable for a starting 5, it's that it's unreasonable for a guy that only plays 17 MPG. Why you commit that many years to not one guy like th...
