re: "Put it in the Memphis trade" - DLBalla
Just let it be known that MM was first to point out this possibility of expanding the Memphis trade. Then SD took that concept and ran with it. I've noticed that repeated pattern in the Pels twitter-verse. [link=(https://twitter.com/michael_stokley/status/1420378673811582980?s=20)]MM, first on "P...

re: 2021 NBA Free Agency - DLBalla
This 12pm, Aug. 6 is actually the [b]start time[/b] that trades and signings can be made official. So the Memphis trade could be made official at a later date/time. But the assumption is that teams will want to finalize the agreed-upon trades ASAP, so they can continue with other moves, and so t...

re: Pels/Cavs discuss Collin Sexton trade - DLBalla
Just the move of Sexton replacing Ball as our lead guard would improve this team so much. They call Collin "Young Bull" for a reason. He brings that intensity, fire, passion, resilience-- the exact things the Pels have lacked over the past 2 seasons (and beyond). He can be the engine that keeps ...

re: Off the radar "star" players that could be our future trade target - DLBalla
Jerami Grant for sure. Pistons and Grant would have to decide they want fuller rebuild and sell high, while Grant gets to a more playoff contending situation. I think Griff's highest offer could be Bledsoe, NAW, Pels 1st this year and 2 other future firsts, and 2nds. Not sure that's enough for ...

re: Draft Prospect: Precious Achiuwa - DLBalla
He's intriguing for sure. But can you spend another key draft pick on such a similar player as Hayes? Two highly drafted 19,20 y/o Centers, needing development time. Would be ideal if we get a higher pick from GS/ATL//NYK in a Jrue or Ball trade, to draft a high level guard or wing. Then be able...

re: when does the Gravity of Zion draw free agents - DLBalla
I and many others have thought of Turner as a perfect fit at C for this team. Even rumors of Pels trying to trade for him last draft. But hard to find incentive for Pacers and a trade that works for both sides, both value-wise and with contract matching. Also, Turner seems pretty slow and lumberi...

re: when does the Gravity of Zion draw free agents - DLBalla
I like that idea a lot. Would we have enough cap space to offer a big contract that TOR wouldnt match? Ibaka would also make a great mentor for Hayes, helping his development and until he passes down of the starter reigns over to Jax....

re: when does the Gravity of Zion draw free agents - DLBalla
Now imagine you're the Pacers. What are you accepting as a trade to give up your valuable player that other teams also want. Keep in mind, Pacers are also very win now. Some combo of Hayes, NAW, picks and some salary matching magic- might not be enough of a win now return for them. They have ...

Imagine, different playstyles, but in terms of level of impact/alphaness, Zion = MJ Ingram = Pippen ?????? = Rodman... Enter Isaac Okoro. The elite tough-nosed, switchable 1-4 defender, anchor of the defense freeing up Zion/Igram to further dominate on O. Okoro already has NBA read...

re: Trade up for Okoro - DLBalla
Yea I guess it depends on which teams are drafting in that range and how much Griffin values a certain prospect to give up enough to move up. Hoping for a star from future draft picks is one strategy. But what if Pels already have two true stars to build around, with at least one potentially bei...

Trade up for Okoro - DLBalla
Isaac Okoro looks like the missing piece for this squad. Elite wing defender from day 1, boosting team defense, currently the team's biggest weakness. He can play small ball 4 with Zion at Center at times, and can free up the other starters to focus more on offense. He's expected to go in th...
