re: Is May 14th still the day Crewz? - DLBalla
If we did include a pick in a potential Griffin trade, it would be next year's pick, probably lotto protected. And the rest of the trade would be J.Randle on a bigger salary number, the contract of Hill, and possibly Moore, too. But don't you worry, this is just one player that has been talked ab...

Ok... thanks for the further clarification. Not sure what this is in reference to. There is another thread titled 'Blake Griffin' where the potential of adding him is discussed....

re: Blake Griffin - DLBalla
Fair enough take. Important to remember AD's supermax salary wouldnt kick in til' season after next (2020-2021...feels weird to type that). Also, you would have to factor in the potential maximization of Blake's production with the team's top 1-5 training staffs in the league. Not to mention...

re: Blake Griffin - DLBalla
Like big C was saying, adding Griffin's specific rare skillset opens up so much for roster makeup. Elite-level point forward who now consistently makes 3's. Would allow us to start/finish with two other switchable wing defender types, rather than squeeze in a smaller "point guard" to maximize Jrue's...

Lol, ya never know. It is interesting of all numerical possibilities, it was 13.4 million. Maybe the stats lead was a good path. ...

re: Pels granted permission to talk to Redden about GM job - DLBalla
So doing a search of 13.4 nba, this article came up: "Former Sacremento Kings executive accused of $13.4 million scheme accepts plea deal" https://www.sacbee.com/sports/nba/sacramento-kings/article222998590.html Jeffrey R. David, the former chief revenue officer for the team ...

re: Beal and Jrue - DLBalla
A Jrue / Beal combo would catapult them into discussion for the top backcourt in the league, right alongside Steph/Klay(assuming he doesn't bolt for LA...), Harden/Paul (rapidly declining on bloated contract), and a notch above Dame/CJ when factoring in defensive impact. We've seen how far the Wa...

re: Jaylen Brown or Grizzlies Pick - DLBalla
Goin full circle wit it- Boston receives: AD  Pacers recieve: Tatum, Hayward, R. Williams Wizards receive: Brown, MEM pick, SAC pick, Hill Pelicans receive: Myles Turner, Beal, LAC pick  Jrue/Beal/Turner core with our own pick (Hunter, Culver, Sekou, Clarke, etc...or Morant, Zion....

re: Jaylen Brown or Grizzlies Pick - DLBalla
Beal, Jrue, Brown line-ups would be really versatile. Another possibility: Boston receives: AD Pacers recieve: Tatum, Hayward Pelicans receive: Myles Turner, J. Brown, MEM pick, SAC pick, LAC pick Kinda risky trading perimeter player for big (swapping Tatum for Turner), but Turner is the...

I saw you said the other day that you heard Boston would give up all assets for sending out Hayward's contract, too. Think they give up both Tatum, Brown and all picks without sending out Hayward? ...

re: Jaylen Brown or Grizzlies Pick - DLBalla
There's also the possibility of keeping Brown, and some other team being much higher on Tatum than Griffin is, then trading Tatum for a better fitting young star and/or more picks. If Hawks or Cavs get #2 overall pick, swing Tatum to them for Morant + more possibly. Roll on with Ja/Jrue/Jaylen/(...

re: If Pels Win Lotto But AD still wants out - DLBalla
If Morant is there at 3, then yes I would do that Suns trade. Uniting Zion and Morant would be too special to pass up. If it's Barrett, then I'd turn that down and keep high-level veteran mentor Jrue, to get Zion competing right away to build a winning environment. Assuming Suns keep Morant or C...

re: Jrue's Plan - DLBalla
Smart at the 3 would be fine, and in a way that could be his best position since it forces the ball out of his hands to the guards. The trend is snowballing towards positionless 'small-ball', switchable on D, playmaking at multiple positions-- and we have the coach and philosophy in place to fully ...
