Re: 2018-19 Transaction Thread

I wonder how stuff like this just happens all of a sudden though, without speculation of tampering. I thought that he was a good get for them, and have mentioned that here a few times even in the offseason that he needed to be on their radar. But now all of a sudden a few games into the year he randomly gets a buyout nowhere close to the deadline and before the news can even break hes already signing with the Lakers?

Like yeah its obvious they need a back up big and hes a good fit, but were supposed to believe that 8 games in they just up and decided to give him a buyout? Seems like someone from the Lakers side would almost have to be talking so him, convincing him to ask for the buyout and sign with them.

Magic has already been given tampering fines before right?

Most of the time media reports are way late, even the ones that's considered breaking news.

The Suns are 1-7, dead last in the West, they might as well get their young players some more minutes.

I think it was known before the season that he would be a potential buyout candidate. The only surprise is that it happened 8 games into the season.

Also agents talk to teams.

It's not against the rules for teams to talk to agents especially if the agent calls the team, says his client wants a buyout from Phoenix, and asks if they have a need.

For obvious reasons this stuff doesn't leak. It helps no one to leak it to the media.

I also find it funny that the Rockets are about to bring Jeff Bzdelick out of retirement to help coach defense again.

Way too earlier for this but yall know I like tinkering with the armchair GM hypotheticals. Who says no to this trade:

Brandon Ingram, Zubac, Bonga, 2nd round pick

Josh Richardson, Justice Winslow

Miami clears up some of their logjam of primarily SG type players with Richardson, Johnson, Wade, Waiters, Ellington, McGruder and end up with a true SF and the player who of this group has the most potential as a go to guy for their future.

Lakers get two players that are upgrades of their current perimeter defense, and Richardson who fits their need as a shooter as well as a break finisher, without effecting their youth movement and flexibility. Also gives them more depth to move KCP at the deadline if need be.

The Heat say no.

Why would they want that trash *** bum Ingram?

In all seriousness, if youre Miami, why would you clear up this logjam by trading your best player at the position? Especially when youre other options are Dion Waiters and old *** Wade? Makes no sense from the Heat perspective. Could probably get a better return for Richardson than that.
