    Since the draft for the new season is today thought we can start a new thread. And man has this offseason been more exciting than the playoffs were with all these trades. Hoping to see where CP3 and Blake Griffin end up.

    Realistically I think it'll be Blake who goes and not CP. I could even see DeAndre leaving based on rumors that they're shopping him around. I'd love to see CP at Spurs. They'd add another All-NBA level defender and instantly upgrade their playmaking ability, plus take some pressure of creating off Kawhi. But I don't think they have the cap space to do it (could be wrong, since Pau declined his player option?)

    According to the official schedule, both the draft and summer league are part of last season :nervous:

    Chris Paul can get a much better contract at Clippers than elsewhere and at 32 he'll care about money as his next contract might not be a huge one.

    And it would be weird if he did not take the veteran super max since he is the one who fought for it to be put in the CBA.

    Yeah exactly. Think the Clippers run it back, potentially trading Blake if things don't work out. Otherwise they become irrelevant again.

    Looks like Porzingis-Suns deal now imminent. As long as Booker stays Phoenix a winner in my book.

    Celtics have apparently offered the Knicks the 3rd pick and a few other lottery picks for KP.

    Supposedly Myles Turner blabbed then deleted the tweets. Might stay up for the draft now - feck it. At least for the top 10.

    Apparently the Knicks want the no.3, Celtics 1st rounder next year (which they got from Brooklyn), Jae Crowder and Jaylen Brown.

    The sticking point is that the Celtics don't want to give up Brown. If they offer one or a combination of Rozier/Smart/one of the other innumerable 1st round picks picks they've amassed then it might get done.

    That is way too high a price. That's three consecutive top 3 picks (Nets will probably be top 3 next year too). They might get Crowder + no. 3 this year, that's all. Ainge is not giving up on 3 high picks and Crowder for one player.

    So New York are shopping Zinger but for a price nobody will pay.

    I dunno, I would be tempted. Porzingis is already extremely good, fills a need and the Celtics can still make a run at Gordon Hayward and a couple more experienced role players with their cap being as it is. Thomas, Bradley, Hayward, Horford and Porzongis is a very strong starting 5 and is a lot closer to taking on the Cavs.

    The oppurtunity to trade for plauers as good, as young and as cheap as KP do not come along often.

    As a Knicks fan who loves Porzingis even I would say that the Boston trade would be hard to turn down if it was #3 (Jackson), #7 (Monk), A future pick and Crowder or someone else. Add in we would have #8 still too.

    Seems like the Celtics will hold on to #3 because the Knicks asked for too much. That means either Jackson or Tatum.

    He isn't trading KP. He is sending a message not to feck with him.

    It has actually happened!

    LaVine, Dunn and no. 7 pick. That's a bad deal for Bulls and a great one for Minnesota.

    Rubio/Butler/Wiggins/Someone/Towns is very good.

    So how does this work then?
    People all over Twitter wetting themselves over this Ball chap - why didn't the first team pick him then?

    Oh wait, Lakers had 2nd pick overall - so they could get him it seems.

    If SA is truly willing to deal Aldridge for a top 10 pick, and willing to do so even to say a division rival, should the Mavs be all over that deal?

    LA Baby! Magic got that Ball! As long has LaVar doesn't create locker-room issues, he can talk all he wants.
