    This is insane.

    Looks like KP is going to the Suns.

    Suns turned down a trade that would have gotten them Deandre Jordan. Tyson Chandler is a bag of chips at this point, but they didn't want to give up that #4 pick. They have 3-4 point guards and the possibility of adding another was just too overwhelming, I guess.

    The fact that all these teams are going so hard for picks tells you how loaded this draft is.

    If that players name is Brown, and they take Noah we are getting warmer.

    Fuck it no deal. Trading KP to Boston so they can continue to haunt the Knicks would be stupid.

    Thing is, as long as no KP deal gets done there will be no other moves... butler wont go anywhere if teams think they have a shot at KP.

    The deal I read was the Knicks wanted No. 3, Brooklyn 2018 1st Rounder, Jalen Brown, and Jae Crowder.

    Cavs not being able to land Butler or George may be a blessing in disguise.

    Wait for the Knicks buyout of Melo. Convince Melo to sign a sweetheart deal and come to CLE for a season to challenge GS.

    Kyrie, Melo, Lebron, Love and Thompson can beat any team in the league - if they put a focus from the start on improving defensively. They don't need to be lockdown defenders, but a lot more effort is needed.

    They're not improving on defense with a 33 year old Melo. Cavs don't have options though.



    Simmons and his fear/hate of Riley is still adorable.

    I really don't see the complaints. In trading Porzingis, hopefully he'll get away from that madhouse that is the Knicks. Let's face facts: we really gonna pretend that the Knicks are gonna improve under Phil? :coffee:

    Rumor is San Antonio called NY on Aldridge for Melo straight up and the only thing holding it up is Melo wanting to stay in NY.

    The Denver Nuggets and Chicago Bulls were engaged with the Phoenix Suns on Eric Bledsoe trade talks leading to the draft.

    If the Suns pick De'Aaron Fox at No. 4, it likely means they were able to trade away Bledsoe.

    Chris Haynes adds the talks with Denver would feature Emmanuel Mudiay and the No. 13 pick.

    Josh Jackson is a more likely pick at No. 4 if Bledsoe is not dealt.

    Bledsoe signed a five-year, $70 million contract with the Suns in 2014.

    Assuming that talk is true, DBook + KP means the Suns would be pretty much set for the future. DBook + Chriss/Bender (whoever leaves) + KP + Warren + Ullis (assuming Bledsoe is on his way out) could contend for a high/middle seed realistically.

    Come on McD...you're always talking about getting that disgruntled superstar...wouldn't it be nice if the disgruntled superstar on the go wasn't coming FROM Phoenix?

    Yea that was floated to. Honestly the Knicks should just stand pat. Demand the moon and if it's not met just walk.

    KP would be a runaway number 1 in this draft knowing what we know now.. to even dangle him is mindblowing to me.

    The issue is this is Phil's ego being checked and he doesn't like that. He will deal KP for a bag of used condoms if he can get away with it just to appease himself.

    hmm... I feel like they could have gotten more out of Boston... Gotta think KP tied up a lot of that line.

    okay so i guess it's okay to go back to wishing the lakers fail hard every year, but i always hoped it'd be because they were good again.

    Minnesota just elevated their stock a considerable amount and Butler loves Thibs. All of a sudden Rubio is the perfect PG for this situation.
