Kawhi completely tanked his trade value so I'm glad that the Spurs were able to get some good from him. Know a lot of the Spurs' fans were on the fence on whether we wanted another star or future assets for Kawhi. With Pop likely retiring within the next few years, it makes sense to acquire a player you can contend with over the next few seasons rather than build for the future. Nobody is beating the Warriors unless there is a major injury but the Spurs could be a top 3 seed now. Losing Danny Green hurts but he has steadily been declining on both ends of the floor and could just come back to SA next year when he's a FA. The Spurs did get a decent big in Poeltl as well, which is an undervalued addition since the only real center the Spurs had was an aging Pau Gasol.

 

I feel bad for the Raps though, giving up one of the best players in franchise history for having to deal with Kawhi's uncle and not being sure if Kawhi will even play.

For some reason, Cris Carter is pretty close to Kawhi's camp and he's saying Kawhi might not even show up for his physical, press conference, or answer phone calls. If this is true, Kawhi and his dumbass family should be blackballed from the league.

With who? Embiid? No other 76er is nearly as good as DeRozan

 

I was thinking Saric+Covingtion+2019 1st +2021 1st (unprotected from MIA). But that's only appealing if the Spurs want to do a little rebuild. I think, in getting DeRozan, they're saying they don't want to rebuild anything.

Yeah Pop is too old to want to do a full rebuild. DeRozan means they'll be competitive as long as Pop is there.

Assuming this is true .... this is exactly why I said I wouldnt trade some dried up dog shit for him.

Even when he is aFA .. you could sign him and all is good but some small think in the next week could piss him off. It could be the perfect situation or team that he wants and Id still be worried about that switch flipping

As a GM i would want no piece of this guy. Sucks because of the insane amount of talent . But his attitude and ego are untenable and a total non-starter

Sixers would have probably given more in a sign and trade but idk, it's probably the right move to stand Pat with your your assets when everyone seems to be signing 1 year deals. They'll have their chance to land a star.

That Melo trade seems like a win-win. Atlanta may have really wanted to get rid of Schroeder but he can still contribute in OKC as long as he's fine being a backup. OKC still has to pay the huge luxury tax but at least it's on competitive players.

Uhhh they suck. Not much else to say.

Also Michael Porter Jr just had his second back surgery.

It sucks for Derozan, but I think it was a smart trade by the Raptors. Loyalty ain't worth shit.

I'd have thought they'd offer Lowry and JV paired up before they offered DeRozan. Toronto had Poeltl/Siakam and Vanvleet waiting to fill in those positions. The only reason they have a 2 guard now is because they got Danny Green, too. 

I really, really, really like Toronto's roster right now. This group is going to be dangerous, and should win the East, imo.

I can't imagine the Spurs would've taken Lowry. He's a worse, older player who makes more money.
