Why wouldn't the Knicks let him do whatever he wants?The problem with looking at his improvement later in the year is that he did that in a pretty unique context----not only with Harden, but with a team playing five-out and essentially running the offense with Westbrook being almost the center offensively in terms of his access to the (empty) paint.
There's not another team in the league who will let him be the guy in the paint that much, and so while some of that improvement may be real improvement in choice-making, some (maybe a lot) is highly situational and won't carry over elsewhere
It isn't ideal, but there's no reason for them not to build the offense around him. Even if he's not efficient, he'll be very productive. I don't see any downside from a Knicks perspective.They will, but they will also regularly have Mitchell Robinson in or around the paint. And thus, Robinson's defender.
There have to be picks involved, or is my sense of NBA trade value way off?well:
This guy is for real, and real NBA people are talking about it.....
Good lord that would be some lockerroom
Not sure what you are looking at:Considering Harden makes $39M and those 4 combined make $19M there needs to be a lot more involved.
Here use this one:Then the ESPN NBA trade machine sucks balls. My bad.
It's kind of useless if it's not updated.
Was about to post this. It is much better and also let’s you do things like decline or accept options to explore options.
Thanks for this! A responsive layout! What a concept.
My guess is we'll see several sellers this year. Tilman is getting a jump on things before the start of the Season. The hospitality sector (Landry's, his main business) is a disasterOh, and for those of you wondering what switchable players could be had for a TPE? You can start with Robert Covington, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Taurean Prince.
Not sure I get the appeal for Lakers to give up Danny Green and a pick for Schroder
He is/was the only player the Lakers had to match salary with in trades, thus...everyone threw him into potential trades. Literally every other player they could give up right now (excluding KCP who would be a s&t) is at 5 million and under.They pretty badly need another creator, especially if Rondo leaves. He makes a ton of sense for them IMO. Imperfect player but one who can be impactful in a limited role focused on creating offense.
You get sense Green wanted out—a lot of rumors about him moving. He’d be a nice get for many contenders.
So this means if Hayward is opting out we can use it as an expiring contract for a team trying to shed salary, yeah?Team/player options are due after the draft. View: https://twitter.com/keithsmithnba/status/1327993300507389953?s=21
No. I'm assuming you're asking if they could trade Hayward today, then Hayward opts out after the trade.So this means if Hayward is opting out we can use it as an expiring contract for a team trying to shed salary, yeah?
Thank you!No. I'm assuming you're asking if they could trade Hayward today, then Hayward opts out after the trade.
Any player with a player option for the final year of his contract is treated as if his contract has already expired in terms of trades. He wouldn't be eligible to be traded right now unless he opted in to his contract.
One possible destination Harden could land is in Brooklyn with the Nets, but according to SNY sources, the support for such a trade wasn't universal. People around Harden contacted some Nets players to discuss the possibility of the perennial All-Star joining the team, per SNY sources. Some were supportive, but not all players contacted about a potential Harden-to-Brooklyn deal were in favor of it, sources said.
They really need him. Can't imagine him not going back especially considering the relationship and the solids done to himView: https://twitter.com/ShamsCharania/status/1328352427645435904
The first part was expected, the 2nd half is interesting. KCP did LeBron and Klutch a solid. Time to see if the Lakers step up or if he goes somewhere else. He'd be a real loss for them, more to me than Rondo.
I don’t get that from the Piston’s POV except as a precursor to another move. I think it’s a Raptors second rounder. If it’s Detroit’s own it’s more defensible, but Brown was showing some promise as a tough defender last year, the type of cheap, versatile culture guy that a rebuilding team should want. I have a soft spot for him as a tough local kid, so it’s annoying to see him headed to the Nets.
