re: The silver lining: we definitely will be sellers. - Jon1798
Bledsoe’s last year is only partially guaranteed at $3.9 million. He is essentially an expiring contract this offseason. Deep breaths here....

re: SVG on Redick and Hayes DNP - Jon1798
Reddick was probably just sitting the front of a back to back. They don’t want to say they assumed they would lose to the Bucks and had him sit the first game....

re: It is time to go all in...on the future. - Jon1798
Houston doesn’t want Lonzo, they have Wall and Dipo Tucker is only worth a couple seconds The Celtics have luxury issues and don’t look to take on a big salary into exception IMO There is nothing wrong with winning now and planning to win later. The issue isn’t that at all. The issue is t...

re: Shouldn’t we focus on Zach LaVine? - Jon1798
Just because Beal isn’t Lebron or AD doesn’t mean he wants any less. LaVine is going to be a FA at the same time. Do you really think Beal is going to choose to stay with the Bulls, even with LaVine, over living in Miami, or playing with Doncic, or who knows, playing with Ad or Giannis. It only t...

re: Shouldn’t we focus on Zach LaVine? - Jon1798
I wish it were that simple though. You can feel as confident as you want about him wanting an extra $7 million over four years and extra 5th year, but if he’s not confirming he will extend, the majority of teams will not trade their entire future for him. Us included, though I think we make a soli...

re: Shouldn’t we focus on Zach LaVine? - Jon1798
I think it’s a fair question ATL, though we are a bit unique. Short answer is everyone probably takes a small step back. But I think Zion is the type of guy to score like AD, without having to feed him the ball. He’s going to produce by being on the court. Largely, you will see Ingram and LaVi...

re: Shouldn’t we focus on Zach LaVine? - Jon1798
Bulls are not going to bid for Beal with only one year left on his deal. I think it’s very possible they wait until the off-season for a LaVine trade, but if things start to crash for them, it would be in their best interest to move now. 1.5 years is worth a ton more than an expiring, but the Jrue...

Shouldn’t we focus on Zach LaVine? - Jon1798
Bulls are 4-7. Markkanen has forgotten how to play and Bulls seem to be floundering. Zach LaVine is in the same contract situation as Beal, with next year being his logical last year under contract. Big differences being LaVine is only $19.5 million times two. Much easier for us to make a deal...

re: GAME THREAD: Pels @ Suns 9:00PM CST TV: TNT/FOX SPORTS NOLA RADIO: ESPN NOLA 100.3 - Jon1798
This game depends on what Zion we get. He should absolutely kill them, and Ayton should be in constant foul trouble. And like us, their backup big situation is ugly. We at least should have an opportunity for an advantage. But we need great Zion and to hold Paul and Booker to manageable nights....

re: So, who can they get to be a back up center? - Jon1798
We are about $500,000 under the luxury tax. And while going barely over doesn’t sound like that big of a deal, it prevents you from sharing in the spread of the luxury tax funds, and opens you up to possible repeater tax penalties if you go over next season. So I think you can pretty much count on...

Not until March, but maybe something like Melli, Willie H and a pick for Nerlens Noel...

re: So, who can they get to be a back up center? - Jon1798
Our best option for this year would be trading Melli or Hayes and a pick for someone. One of those salaries must go out for us to add anyone worth while. But they will try Gabriel first....

re: Someone keep me from getting irrationally excited about the season. - Jon1798
I think our lack of depth will hold us back. We will have injuries and I don’t think we have the backups to keep things moving. But all healthy? Yeah, I think this team is really really strong....

re: Any possible way we can make a move for Steven Adams? - Jon1798
I’m sorry, but did that article give a percentile of players in the PLAYOFFS in the middle of a 5 game first round series. Holy small sample size! Are we seriously blaming Steven Adam’s for that Portland series? Game1- Paul George- 8-24 and 4-15 from 3 Dennis Schroeder- 5-17 and 0-7 from 3 ...
