    I kinda wonder how he'd do in OKC next to Chet (if Chet ever plays).

    OKC is a team that should take on Simmons if we’re talking “buying real low”. Plenty of picks and easily movable salary.

    I could see the Clippers trading for Simmons.

    Say the Nets come to you and offer KD for Sharpe/Simons/Hart. Would you do it?

    Who do the Clippers have that Brooklyn would want? (assuming the Clippers would not move Kawhi or PG)

    No.

    However, I would do:
    KD/Sharpe for Simons/Nurk/GPII + 2 picks.

    There's no way Brooklyn makes any deal without Sharpe in it.

    Tough question, because I hate the prick so much. Hard to believe the Nets had 3 of my least favorite players on one team last year.

    Could Dame, Gp2, Durant, Grant, and Nurk (Little, Winslow, Keon, Walker, Watford, Eubanks) win a championship? I think they would need to keep one of those 3 traded guards in order to do so.

    Sharpe WAS in the deal.

    KD/Sharpe for Simons/Nurk/GPII + 2 picks.

    No. I don't want KD destroying our youth movement with nothing to show for it like he did with Brooklyn

    It's the only deal that really works financially. Well, I suppose you can replace Hart with Grant or Nurk, but both of those guys are more needed in the short term if you're bringing KD back.

    Love the energy from the team since last year's trade. KD, Nurk, and Grant would be a long front line, but would they bring the energy along with Dame? I look at the Lakers and the Nets and I wonder why they didn't work. Is one older vet like Phoenix has .....a good recipe? But not more than one? I would be leery of doing that trade. I would do Grant, Ant, and filler (i.e Brown, Walker Keon, protected 1st) )

    How likely is it that KD demands a trade during the season? If not KD, how likely is it a star that we would want will be made available for trade? My guess would be not likely at all.

    So in the meantime, let the draft go by so we can trade our picks again. Any trade should be a rotational addition like adding another C. Or trading Hart to get into the 1st round this year.
    Minor changes like that.
