    The return was Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards and a 2026 2nd round pick. That's not really trade value as much as a couple teams being bored dumping players on each other.

    Simmons could never play another game in Philly even if he wanted to

    The fans would rip him apart

    Goran Dragic is supposedly going to be signing with Dallas once his buyout with Toronto is complete.

    Brooklyn saving a bunch of money doesn't mean it's not a deal worth doing for Detroit.

    And I'm not entirely sure it's worth doing, depending on what they save in the buyout of Jordan. But four 2nd rounders is at least decent for a return.

    I wonder what changed for KD and Kyrie. Like DJ was washed before he even signed here but they took less money so he could get that contract and even had Atkinson fired cause he was starting JA over him even when DJ was basically a statue. Nothing really has changed in terms of his ability so maybe they just finally got fed up with his lack of effort and were willing to move on?

    Anyway Mark's is still goated. The team has legitimate depth now which is virtually unheard of for a team with 3 max players sans the KD warriors. Just please no injuries

    Because they just gave Detroit 4 2nds and took back enough guaranteed contracts that now Detroit can kick off the Luka Garza era of the NBA

    Pretty much this
    He's a good athlete and has some skills, but he's not good at anything at this point and is wildly inconsistent from night to night. Maybe he figures something out in Brooklyn because it's not that hard to be a role player next to those three, but he had a hard time sticking in the rotation of an awful Detroit team last year even when Grant was injured.

    I will say tho Detroit has been really solid for brooklyn the last couple of years tho. Bruce Brown Blake taking DJs contract. Not to mention dinwiddie which wasnt direct transaction but still. Lowkey rooting for them now

    It may come back to bite them, but he just played in summer league as a 3rd year guy and didn't stick out in any positive way. Generally speaking, that's a pretty bad sign. And even if he turns it around this year, I don't think he's shown anywhere near enough to make them offer the guaranteed 4th season. I'm guessing Brooklyn just dumps him on someone willing to take a flier for nothing to save money, anyway.

    Yea I'm not sure there is a roster spot for him because him Okafor and Deandry Bembre would all be competing for 1 spot but seems intriguing enough.

    He was never going to live up to what some in our fanbase expected, but he regressed, there was some rumor of a rift w the team about not letting them know he was going to France during the pandemic, and he was really really bad in summer league. I imagine the nets could put better use to that roster slot
