Not with a 1+1 I believe, could be wrong.
I think that was only last season because he was playing for his QO
Now Hood has an early-bird contract and Portland owns those rights. Pretty sure those would transfer in a trade
Spidey Man carries the ball every time he has it. Definitely NBA material.
Mozgov going back to Russia. Rockets want Tyson Chandler.
Sign Joakim already!!
His name has been mentioned before but I also wouldn’t mind Sefolosha. He’s old but still grades out very well defensively, is a good rebounder for his position, and can knock down a three. I wouldn’t even be opposed to him starting and playing 15-20 minutes a night.
A lot of people would love to add Iggy, well Sefolosha isn’t a bad alternative either.
Simons. They need a PG bad. We don't really have any more available salaries to match though.
Hell no to trading Simons for RoCo. I truly think Hood is a better, albeit different, player than Covington and that we're all going to be surprised at how well Kent Bazemore fits in. I'm all for upgrading the roster but let's not Petro for Walter Davis or Jeramine for Dale Davis this thing up!
Agreed but not worried that is will happen. The only way Neil is moving Ant is if it returns an all star type player who is in his prime. Neither RoCo or KLove would meet that requirement IMO. AD of course would have.
I kept thinking we had some guys targeted and were waiting for one of them to get desperate enough to accept a minimum contract; but now it seems there is nobody left. I suspect Diallo is wanting to go back to Pelicans and is negotiating with them?
Here is somebody's top 8 left.
1. Kenneth Faried
He hasn’t adjusted to the offensive or defensive ways of modern bigs, but his physicality and interior presence is still effective in spot minutes. He revived his career a bit in Houston last year, scoring 13 points with eight rebounds in 24 minutes.
2. Thabo Sefolosha
Sefolosha is a good defensive guard who can fit into any rotation. He averaged a steal in 12 minutes last year, and added four points and three rebounds.
3. Cheick Diallo
Diallo is only 22 and showed promise with New Orleans. He averaged six points with four rebounds on 62 percent shooting last year. Take a chance on Cheick.
At 36, he’s nearing the end of his career, but he was still effective in very limited minutes with Houston last year. He’s a good pickup as a last-resort option for a competitive team.
5. Pau Gasol
Gasol’s season ended early after he had surgery on his foot to repair a stress fracture. And he’s 36 years old. But when healthy, he was still fine last season, averaging four points and four rebounds in 12 minutes.
6. Jonas Jerebko
Jerebko can shoot from deep, making 37 percent of his three attempts per game for the Warriors. Add him for bench depth.
7. Dante Cunningham
Cunningham’s offense isn’t stellar, but defensively, he’s pretty good. He also made 30-of-65 threes he took last year, so maybe he can take (and make) more elsewhere.
8. Nik Stauskas
I’ll never give up on someone who can shoot.
Did I miss where Livingston and Noah were signed?
Of those I'm only tempted by Sefolosha and Jerebko. It would be weird to get Dante back...
Fries would be a solid pick up as he can bring energy and since we lost AFA it would be good to have a guys that could be tough around the hoop.
Get Nik back as trade fodder for the deadline ! The new Steve Blake !
Honestly should’ve signed jerebko instead of Tolliver, assuming he gets the minimum.
That is correct. 1 year contracts have a no trade clause unless the player approves.
I don't think that's entirely correct
Players who accept their QO have right to veto a trade. Players on a 1 year contract that will have either full-Bird or early-Bird rights at the end of that season can also veto a trade since their Bird rights would not transfer
Portland could have traded Curry last season because he was only going to have non-Bird rights, and he had a 1 year contract. Pretty sure there is not any no-trade provision for any player who signs a vet-minimum deal for one year. IIRC, the only other no-trade provision (unless player consents) is when a team matches another team's offer sheet. For that next season, the player can veto a trade
I’m leaning towards Pau, it would fit the theme of finally signing players we tried to get in the past. Plus I think he’d be solid for 10-15 min per game and some championship experience would be nice in the Locker room.
The more I think about it snagging Livingston and Pau would do wonders for us, their experience in the playoffs alone would be worth min contracts imo.
Another guy I wouldn’t mind at allll. Forgot who’s a big fan of his on the board, but I’m on team Wood as well. Dude just needs a chance.
