No... thats gross haha.
That's an idea I hadn't heard before.
Idk, those are two all-stars... Add Hood to the starting unit (full MLE) then go after Ariza in FA with the Bi-Annual? (If we can do that?) and Taj Gibson with Vet Min.
Dame / Mills
DeRozan / Simons
Hood / Ariza / Trent Jr.
Aldridge / Gibson / Layman
Nurkic / Collins / Skal
The lack of shooting is brutal. Theres not one good 3pt shooter on that team outside if Dame. Aldridge is overrated and doesnt efend particularly well. Derozan sucks defensively. Both disappear in crucial situations.
And Gibson and Ariza arent signing for that little.
They’re getting older, looking to contend. They could.
Sure, you can have Lillard:
I can picture it now:
Olshey: "Hey, Dame we just traded for Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday!"
Dame: "Holy SHIT! How did you pull that off?"
Olshey: "Pack your bags"
Dame: "You mother fucker!"
BTW, that trade better have included the #1 pick too.
Wouldn't do it. Without Dame, it's a guarantee that Davis walks after one season.
Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova, JR Smith, Cedi Osman for Evan Turner, Meyers Leonard, Moe Harkless, and 25.
We then waive JR (only 3.8m guaranteed for 19-20).
Gives us more space to sign Hood, and Osman is a good prospect (more impact than a rookie would give us).
Dame / Delly
CJ / Simons / Trent
Hood / Osman / Layman
Collins / Aminu
Nurk / Thompson / Skal
Obviously would have to sign some bigs with vet min or buying 2nd rounders
Ew. Fuck Thompson and Delly. Those mives make us worse.
I think Thompson+Osman would be really impactful in Portland. Hell even Delly could make an impact in the way Patrick Beverley does (not to the full extent, but he’s a huge nuisance..)
Regardless of AD, I’d try these two
Expirings and #25 to either Minnesota or Charlotte for Dieng and #11, or Batum and #12.
Osman is overrated as hell IMO. Thompson is a punk. Delly is too, he's dirty. No thanks.
Osman is only 24 though, he has a lot of room to improve and I think he will. He has Ingles/Peja ceiling and Bjelica/McDermott floor.
You can't trade a non-guaranteed contract like that anymore. It only counts as the $3.8 million in the trade unless it's guaranteed.
I know and it works in the trade
Yet every media source as well as the Cavs front office is reporting that you can.
Because media people are never wrong?
Im pretty sure I heard quotes directly from Cleveland's front office.
@hoopsjock - I did some research - Because JR Smith signed under the old CBA before they changed the rules on non-guaranteed contracts, the new rules don't apply to his deal.
Separate names with a comma.
