    What max FA are you signing to play with Wall, Gordon and Wood (who combine to make $76M next year)? Seems unlikely to be anyone you'd want to pay max money for.

    i know this is unpopular in this thread but i think philly needed to make the deal. harden + embiid is a potential championship team. simmons + embiid simply isn't.

    Seems like only 20 months ago when everyone was raving about the Nets and the culture they had built.

    Especially with how much better the East had gotten. Who makes sense to bring in with embiid now?

    it probably sucks to root for harden instead of root against him but brooklyn did the right thing. harden and durant are going to be so good together and it's a timely acquisition given that kyrie is off the rails.

    i don't like the fit with kyrie but i like it with just harden and durant. they probably need the offseason to get some role player help but i think they're a 2022 contender and that's worth selling the next 6 years or w/e out.

    They can’t get fair value for Kyrie right now and doubtful moving forward.

    beal is obvious but he's not of the same quality as harden offensively. if one of the top west seeds struggles this year (denver? portland? utah?), maybe there's a trade to be made but i don't see an obvious fit right now.

    Nets just need to trade Kyrie for Russ and things can get super weird

    hornets were already better than the nets (scoreboard) and further blowing up the locker room just increases that distance

    i think kyrie going awol and him supposedly being upset at the front office/durant forced their hand, not just a couple of extra close losses
