    I don't know the specifics obviously but Portland was trying for a Simmons/CJ + whatevs swap but Morey has his mind set that Lillard is fair value for Simmons and apparently is willing to wait until the Dame situation hits critical mass

    the warriors are delusional if they turned that down

    I agree that it could be pretty great but I can understand the hesitance. Simmons and Draymond on the floor together is yuck in half court offense.

    Ha just read that Lacob made that comment right before the 3-1 choke job.

    Thought he said that during the KD years.

    4 first rounders seems a bit much for a guy who won't/can't shoot.

    figure GS will do something bc if they don’t that is daring Steph to not sign his extension and finish his career somewhere else.

    delusional to think Klay fixes everything with how the West looks right now. It took a ridiculous offensive run by Steph to make a play in game .

    If DeAndre Ayton has taught us anything it's that rookie centers are who they are forever

    playing next to an MVP level PG helps other players, I agree. color me skeptical that he's found a new level worthy of his contract.

    Yeah I’m not saying he’s great or even good. Just above average now and a good defender

    His contract isn’t as much of an albatross as it was a few years ago

    its not that he can't improve its that the warriors have a fairly limited title window so that's why their insistence on taking projects is dumb. they need to go for it while steph is still steph

    Idk if I would give up 4 firsts and Wiseman's upside for Simmons if I'm GSW, but the thought of them combining two of the best shooters ever with him sounds like fun to watch, and I hate GSW.

    I don’t really disagree. I just think they could probably get someone better than Simmons with all of those assets

    If you’re Philly, why not just wait til the season plays out a little? Some team is bound to panic trade for him.

    I guess the situation could already be too toxic, Not to mention how Philly sports fans are known to be rational and understanding

    Point is valid but Ayton also put up 16 and 10 on 60% TS as a rookie

    True. Forgot he was pretty solid offensively. His defense was so bad it overshadowed it in my memory

    Delon Wright is the best player in this trade and has a role if Lou Will doesn’t come back.

    10 PPG backup that shot 40% from 3 is great return for the garbage we gave away

    picking up the best player in a trade entirely made up of players that are no longer of use to their teams is really a hell of an achievement, thats for sure

    Delon is so good that he bounces around from team to team in trades like this exact one every year

    he’s so good that the kings drafted his replacement last night and gave him away

    hawks fans are so stupid

    Did the Boston not call the Kings first? Because Delon Wright makes a lot of sense for them and seems like someone they should prefer to Dunn.

    Must be about the money because Dunn played 2 min of real basketball last year and Fernando might be in the running for worst player in the league
