Easy realignment: New Orleans relocates to Seatte and the Northwest Division. OKC to the Southwest. No need for expansion. 

 

The subtext of any post I make on NBA attendance is that team should move to Seattle.

 

But NO should absolutely move to Seattle.

About to post just that.

 

Good lord. Is it possible for every team in a 4-team trade to lose?

 

EDIT: this of course assumed Minnesota doesn't immediately package Wiggins and other stuff for D'Lo, which they should.

I’m OK with the trade for Minnesota either way.  Nothing they dumped was key for the future.  I like RoCo but his role makes sense for a team with a pulse.

I don't get the point of competing to win each of the first three quarters if only the points matter? Is that's something that's carried over but not elaborated on?

 

 As for me with the idea created by the NBA, each quarter should be treated as a separate match, but instead of we've got mess.

Wait, there's a future outside of 25-31 wins per season?

Depends on whether they move or not.

Raptors set a franchise-record win streak last night in improbable fashion. Keep going!

Reports say that Hawks are sending cash for Skal Labissiere and Derrick Walton Jr. Players for money. Nice strategy Atlanta.

To be exact, DLO , Jacob Evans and Omari spellman for Wiggins and picks.

Clippers landed Marcus Morris, IT and kept Trez. That's pretty good.

 

I also think they don't have a single pick in the next 5 years.

Let’s just hope that first round pick remains a good one. 

The Wolves one? Oh yeah. They'll always get into the top-10.

Not sure Minny didn't give up too much for DLo. Wiggins is not that far away from him as a player, especially after having improved his game this season. Omari Spellman is nice and all, but giving an only top-3 protected first round pick on top of Wiggins? I don't like that part so much for Minny.

 

EDIT:

Also, my Cavs are reportedly getting Drummond - one of the players they could have and should have drafted themselves back in '12 draft - only for Henson, Knight and a 2nd round pick? Why the heck not? I'm all for it! I didn't see any point in trading Love for him without getting valuable young prospects with potential in return, but for these players? Bring it on!

Drummond can leave this off-season, so Cleveland did a salary dump for an expiring contract. Detroit also kept Derrick Rose; I'm not sure what they're doing.

 

Houston gave up all its size in a conference that features Jokic, Gobert, McGee, Howard, Morris, Zubac, and Harrell. Not sure I see the strategy either.

 

LAC got better. Lakers did the right thing by doing nothing; if they pick up Darren Collison and/or one of Oubre, JR or someone else, they'll be doing just fine.

Clips are waiving IT, so may be in the DC market after all.

They are in the Darren Collison market.

 

Anytime you mention "DC" in reference to an NBA player, you know who most folks think of...and it ain't Derrick Chievous or Del Curry
