    So: Orlando isn't going to want Ant now that they signed KCP.
    Detroit seems much less likely for Jerami because they signed Tobias Harris.
    Dallas is about to land Klay (and managed to lose their "target 1A and 1B" Derrick Jones Jr. to the Clippers in the process) so seem unlikely to pursue Jerami (unless they miss out on Klay)

    Knicks lost Hartenstein to OKC - are they maybe likely to be interested in Timelord?

    I imagine it's LA or Dallas for Grant, whoever misses on Klay.

    Really thought Orlando was ideal for Simons

    RWIII would be a good fit for Orlando

    LAL and GSW. Lakers have to be competitive to save face for hiring a rookie coach and blowing a srp on bronny. Gsw has to try and recapture Steph’s glory years ie aint goin out like that.

    What is LAL or DAL or GSW going to send us to make it worth it? I am good with sending him away to accelerate the rebuild but we aren't going to trade Grant just for the sake of trading him.

    Denver lost Bruce Brown and KCP. They could use a lot more but Thybulle will be good for them

    Sadly, they were too smart for us. I blame the Celtics for showing that defense wins.

    Denver are fucked. They have no assets to trade.

    He was, but getting someone else without giving up any assets is a better option.

    Orlando had the 2nd best defense in the league last year. They got bounced in round 1 because their offense was trash

    LAL: Jarred Vanderbilt.
    DAL: Josh Green, Olivier Max-Prosper
    GSW: Kevon Looney??

    Slim pickins. I'd be most interested in Vanderbilt because he's a ferocious rebounder and defender, but he seems to have constant foot problems.

    Maybe. KCP's never been one to create for himself, and Orlando had a big need for a lead guard who could do just that.

    Well, KCP shot 40% on threes...?

    I like Vanderbilt as well but these mostly seem like trading for the sake of trading. Especially DAL as they aren't going to have any good draft picks for a while.

    Well, maybe they'll realize that halfway through the season and get back to us.

    Just puts more pressure on Banchero and Wagner to create the offense, he was assisted on 95% of his 3s.
