Re: 2017-2018 Off-Season Thread

I'm all in for Khawi as long as we don't send out any future draft picks and get to keep one or two out of the three (Ingram, Kuz, Ball).

Big fat NO for Bron *non basketball reasons

A hypothetical defensive lineup of Khawi, George and Bron though sounds great and if we were able to keep Ingram stick him at PG a man can dream

Must fight off these rumors

Seems like every off-season something new happens that I didn't even know was possible lol
With Randle's bird rights, the Lakers can go over the cap to sign him, but he still counts against their salary cap as $12 million until he signs a new deal, which hurts their chances of being able to sign other guys like LeBron/PG13. I'm guessing they'll have to renounce his cap hold and let him walk unrestricted in order to make 3 max guys work but I haven't done the exact math on that yet.

Re: 2017-2018 Off-Season Thread

Pop has a rule against trading players to teams in the West and I think the deal would have to be extra sweet in order for him to deal him within the conference.... and especially to the Lakers. Obviously, he's going to do what is best for the Spurs but I just can't see him helping the Lakers build a super team.

Danny Green still say everything is fine, I'm sure. Media just lying again.

We were just talking about this at work, but it would seem like if they sat down and talked already, and now it's coming out that he wants to be in LA, that maybe their discussion was that Pop would do him a solid. We've saw it happen plenty of times over the years, just never with Pop lol.

We just spent the last 20 years asking the Knicks to stop doing these things. To actually rebuild. And now Leonard is available and we think surrendering more youth to acquire him would suddenly make the Knicks good again?

Can anyone name the last time a team in the Knicks position acquired a star player and saw immediate success?

Not to mention KP will likely miss the entire season. We're very close to being a great spot.

1) Got KP
2) Got Frank (eff the haters)
3) Add a solid rotation piece next week (either Bridges kid or Knox)
4) Suck next year without KP and get a high draft pick

If we trade for Kawhi we're still going to suck next year and he could potentially walk in 2020.

Watch this happen, the Spurs draft Doncic and turn him into the star Euro-freak Pop has always longed for.
