Question: do you guys think Wizards are dumb enough to do a Beal for Porzingis trade? Their contracts kind of match up.


I don't think they would.
But maybe a WB for Dennis, KCP, THT

And then he wonders why it’s so hard to buy into the draft.

Championship GM.


That Zubac for Muscala though, AFTER they gave Thomas Bryant up for nothing to give Zubac the roster spot. All because they stubbornly decided playmakers like Lance and Beasley were the way to go.

He won a championship in real life. You arm chair from the internet in way that you actually believe you know more than him which makes it all the more funny.


You put LBJ and AD on 29 other teams in the league and see how many other GMs look championship quality. Him winning one doesn’t mean he is immune to bad deals. By that measure, we should’ve kept Mitch forever since he won 5.

Impossible …never happen. But, sure, great dream…though I am not a Russ fan.

The Lakers will probably have to overpay in a trade.

1. They are the Lakers. Nobody wants to help them win another championship.

2. The Lakers are capped out.

Notice how it says KCP or Kuzma. That could mean that the team has a second trade lined up for Kuz.


I would assume it's more meant to be they offered a deal including Harrell and whoever the Kings prefer more, Kuzma or KCP.

Great. Whatever moves he made got us a ring. He followed that up by making us better on paper unfortunately we got hurt. However Rob is better at his job than anybody here at his job.

Would’ve, should’ve, are easy . What we think he should do is great for banter but reality we have no idea what can and can’t be done.

My favorite is people say no one wants to help the lakers yet cry when we can’t work out deals with other teams.

If we include that 22 pick for the Hield trade, I think the chances of Dennis staying goes up.

We wouldn't be hardcapped though so we're free to re-sign whomever remains after the trade between Caruso, Horton-Tucker, Matthews, and Morris as necessary. We'll also have the MMLE to bring in a quality player.

Wizards like taking chances on prospects, they might be intrigued with taking a chance on Marvin Bagley. if a Westbrook trade is lined up after we acquire Buddy Hield and we get Bagley in the trade I wouldn’t be surprised if Bagley is routed to WAS.

My ideal scenario is Kuz/Harrell/22 for Hield+2nd, KCP for Ingles/30th, resign Schroder, sign DeRozan for MLE/MMLE. Fill out the roster with minimum guys like Melo, Luwalet-Cabaret, Iggy, Dwight, Ish Smith, etc.

Hield, Ingles, DeRozan and Schroder add shooting, shot making and play making to our offense much more well rounded. Would like to keep Caruso, but not sure if the money works for us.

Final Roster:

Schroder/THT/Ish Smith
Hield/DeRozan/Iggy
Bron/Ingles/Luwalet-Cabaret
AD/Melo
Dwight/Gasol

If Portland does indeed blow it up I feel Melo is def coming.

can we route a guy Bagley from sac trade to the wizards trade?

make a big 3 way trade
DS/KCP/Mmckinnie/Gasol/bagley for westbrook
Kuzma/harrell for hield


Make it happen! 🤣

Russ
Hield
Bron
AD
Epic

Now that's a squad.

That would be ideal as we would need a 3-and-D player who is in his 20s or early 30s and has athleticism.

KCP isn't worth Ingles and a pick and Derozan isn't signing for the MLE and especially not the MMLE

We can’t work out deals with other teams because the players we are offering have such low value. Hence, we give away draft picks to make up for that deficit, and the cycle keeps repeating itself infinitely.
