    First move of the not yet off-season:





    So Monroe will most likely be available in Free Agency.

    I didn't even know you could DO trades yet!

    I hope this means that they know Monroe is going to the Knicks. I also hope he's not coming to Portland. (But having said that, I don't think you can conclude much with this. Ilyasova is not going to replace Monroe. This is bench shuffling.)

    Actually, as somebody pointed out, the downside is that the Bucks just freed up money to match any offer for Middleton, who did interest me.

    I think teams no longer playing can make moves. Probably need to use this previous season's #s for the cap, which definitely is a bit odd.

    I wonder if Milwaukee tried trading Ilyasova for a draft pick, cuz if they did they would have had over $30M going into free agency, and I can't imagine them giving Butler to many minutes of they keep Parker, Middleton, and Giannis.
    I imagine theyll try to dump OJ Mayo.. thing is you can look at Philidelphia as a salary dump all summer. I think you'll see shady year trades like OJ Mayo and 45 to Phili for 58 and 60. Milwaukee could then see if they could get Middleton to wait on signing an offer sheet and then use their $35M in cap room to go after Paul Millsap (maybe LA or K Love) and Brook Lopez..

    It's funny how they're in such an enviable position when they were so terrible a year ago.

    Read the tweet, Cleveland can't trade Lebron until after the finals.

    Butler's and Williams' contracts are both unguaranteed for next season.
    So this is a rough example of the type of value something like kaman's deal could potentially fetch.

    LeBron doesn't play for Cleveland after the season. So they can't trade him. He is free agent.

    I know this was just a snarky response to an original snarky post but.... Not necessarily. It is an opt in our out that he triggers. Maybe some could claim it is a forgone conclusion he opts out but I don't think so now with the cap going up so much next year summer. Especially if they win a title this year. Although it isn't as much about money anymore for LeBron as much is it is about who the team surrounds him with.

    Philly can ask for a lot more than that.

    both those contracts have team options for next year so Mil can clear the capspace, giving them about 22 mil to spend this summer if they desire

    possibly, but does Philly WANT more than that? I don't think so. I think Milwaukee would live to get rid of Mayo's contact to sign a legit PF and bring Parker off the bench

    Parker is going to be a star. Why would they want him off the bench?

    Because he's going to be a star, he isn't one yet. And he would still get 30 min a game. If it means them contending why wouldn't you?

    They have so many second rounders that they will look to trade 2 up for 1
