    Was Lavert a better option than the salary flexibility of not resigning Oladipo?

    Future drafts are just going to be Houston and OKC alternating picks

    Don't forget the Pelicans. It will just be the Thunder, Pelicans and Rockets rotating picks like a fantasy draft.

    We were just leverage. Harden put Portland to get Brooklyn to up their package.

    Still unclear how Cleveland ended up with Jarrett Allen. What else did they give up besides Exum?

    Also unclear why Cleveland targeted Allen when they have Drummond. They also have Javale McGee.

    Wow Just three nets players put them over the salary cap. The three of them combined make over 113 M a season this year and all going up next year.

    i liked PJ here as a bench vet before the season started, but it's clear that we need a backup point.

    This is a good trade for CJ, with Harden now in the Eastern Conference, even better chance of making the All-star team this year.
