I feel like last season we had a thread like this and I really enjoyed it. Also, i would add, while people can obviously do what they want I hope we could keep this to at least semi-legitimate rumors from people that cover the NBA (anyone from shams and woj down to Washburn and Buecher) I would hope that we can avoid having this get down into instagram nonsense of people's taking pictures of moving trucks or claiming durant is at a nightclub in a random city. That being said, here are some of the ones i have seen recently:

Summary: From Bucher: Durant and Irving, league sources say, have met twice in recent weeks to discuss their desire to continue their careers on the same team, an idea forged while playing together on the U.S. national team. The first meeting took place in the Bay Area while Durant nursed a strained right calf; the second occurred in New York shortly after Durant had surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Why would Deandre Jordan attract Durant to go to the Nets? Deandre is old, by the time Durant is ready to play again, he'll be even older.

They are friends off the court. Supposedly that's why Knicks brought in Jordan due to his connection to KD.

IMO it seems KD really is a popular / very social guy in the league. He is connected with a lot of players.

Haha - wouldn't that be a slap in the face to the entire history of the Cs franchise. Poor Red!

Lol. People think it's a hop, skip, and jump away from NY no matter where you are in Jersey. If I've learned anything during this offseason, it's that people have no idea about the geography of the Tri-State area.  For anyone interested, it's completely impractical for him to commute from South Jersey to Brooklyn. Or Central or North Jersey for that matter. You're talking about a minimum hour commute from North Jersey - and I'm being generous there.

With that said, Kyrie's had a home in the Orange area of Jersey for some time now. He recently purchased a new one allegedly.

Never believe a word Ric Bucher say's, he's been caught lying on multiple occasions and if you look back on his predictions they were all way off...the guy belongs on TMZ.

After Boston and Brooklyn swung their big trade, the Nets became famous for signing RFAs to big offer sheets.

It might be the Celtics turn at that game this summer, with chatter building that Malcolm Brogdon, Thomas Bryant and Tomas Satoransky are potential targets.

Disclaimer - it's Keith Smith. But this wouldn't surprise me, even though I'm not sure how "gettable" any of these guys really are as restricted free agents.
