    If Ainge signs Millsap for anything other than the minimum then he should be publicly executed in the streets

    That’s what he was saying. MKE’s potential was there but it’s going to be viewed as coming up short without Bogdan, too

    I was a bit off on an earlier post. If Tatum signs an extension, Boston will have 8 players under contract in 2021-22 and will likely be under the cap. That's not even counting the two first rounders they drafted this year. Going to be looking at a $120+ million payroll for 10 players.

    exactly. so i'm really just curious if milwaukee will look to trade giannis if they don't sign him in the next couple of weeks. miami and dallas (and gs, i guess) are long talked about as the FA destinations but i wonder where he could get traded to and for what

    Under no circumstances do you trade someone of Giannis's stature

    There’s zero chance you get more than a quarter of the value...but if he makes it clear he’s not resigning, a quarter is better than nothing.

    Only way you trade Giannis is if he comes to you and says there is zero possibility that he will ever resign or he demands a trade and sits out until he is traded.

    I’m inclined to agree, unless he deems the moves the Bucks made as not enough for him. No reason to think they can’t still be the top team in the East...but there’s also proof that Toronto and Miami can beat them, reason to believe Boston can, and now you have to worry about KD and Kyrie in NJ. And that doesn’t even address the fact they probably weren’t built to beat the best team in the west - which just improved quite a bit more than Milwaukee did.

    I guess but I highly doubt that. They may not be the favorite (they may be the East favorite) but they are a serious contender and there is no reason at all to throw that all away and sully your public image by publicly saying you want a trade. Play it out this year, and if you want to leave, go sign somewhere else.

    it just makes no sense from either side to be looking at a trade.

    In fairness, Toronto's proof of being able to beat them probably went out the door when Kawhi left. He averaged something like 30, 10 and 5 in that ECF.

    No clue what to make of the top of the East yet. Seems like Miami, Boston and Toronto (if it can keep Ibaka) are basically running it back with a few tweaks. Milwaukee swapped Bledsoe/Hill for Holliday, but is probably weaker elsewhere currently. Brooklyn feels like a complete wild card. And Philly has reshaped some stuff, but I think they'd be my pick if I had to make one today.

    Millsap is a good guy to have on the team, he just shouldn't be on anyone's close out unit.

    Hope the Nuggs are able to flip Harris or Barton for more front court help before the playoffs.

    Agree that it’s highly unlikely, and would take a really disappointing start to the season for Milwaukee/Giannis to consider - I just didn’t like the idea that there’s no situation where you trade him.

    How tf do you not know your own team?

    Tatum was 100% the asset they got from the nets #1 overall lottery pick. They traded down to the third pick because philly wanted fultz and got an extra pick from philly. Dude is your best player and this shit was like 3 years ago. And you had look it up on basketball reference? And still got it wrong?

    I guess they could always trade him to New Orleans to recoup their own draft picks.

    Denver is paying Millsap and Green combined less than Grant is getting paid. They won the exchange.

    Question though, at what point will you begin referring to Cleveland as we again?

    Nuggets were totally strapped and could only add minimum guys without bird rights so getting Millsap back at any amount for this year is a win. He and Green will be a decent enough PF rotation. Wing defense is a big problem again though

    If everyone played every game then I agree but you have to take into account players will be playing a lower percentage of games this season due to COVID or injury just like MLB and NFL have experienced.

    No bubble means depth across the board is crucial. Young guys also are going to be forced to step their game up which is much better than just being given unearned starting jobs like last season. Hopefully the competition will help Hunter, Cam, and Huerter grow into playoff caliber rotation players sooner than they would without being pushed.

    Not a serious suggestion, just that it would be crazy to trade Giannis away when you traded away your own pick (including swaps) for the next 5 years.
