LaVert should flourish in Indy..

Cavs should have great defense but no offense hardly..Drummond & Allen are both FA after this season right??

Nets have no bench so if one of those stars goes down, they are done

Houston getting Olapido and picks is okay..better hit a home run with 2 of those picks
Cavs have one of the best scoring backcourts in basketball and do still have Love (at least for now).  They needed someone like Allen as a long-term fit with Sexton, Garland, and Okoro.

(Maybe) We should acquire Nance Jr (or/and Cedi)... If we don't have a bigger plan for our trade exception.
Nance would be an awesome get. He’s my front runner for DPOY this year so far, and has changed his game completely. Now a good shooter and passer, and can play 3-5
they aren't trading Nance unless they are blown away. Live and Drummond however are both easily gettable

I know depth isn't a big deal when you have a big three, but I do think depth matters.

Relying on Luwawu, Shamet, and Green as your bench is not ideal. With Dinwiddie already out, that hurts. Harris is a great fourth guy. As the season goes, I really think Jordan is going to show his age and inability to guard inside.

Still, that big three is pretty awesome. Kudos to them.

I really wonder what this means for Cleveland. I can't think McGee wants to get 0 minutes a game, but he doesn't deserve any with Allen and Drummond. It makes me think one of the two gets bought out. I don't think either helps the Cs.

I think it also shows that Indiana did not think Oladipo was resigning, no matter what. Great move by them.

I agree with this. But that also makes me wonder why Indiana wasn't willing to offer Oladipo in a sign-and-trade for Hayward?

Yeah, Nance is probably their 4th hardest guy to get (behind their young trio). Not sure how much interest we would have in either of those other two

Because Indiana thought they had the Celtics under their thumb and they messed up. Im sure they thought the Celtics would be forced to take their offer, and they could flip Oladipo for something else later on.

While this may be one of the most talented trios in NBA history, I think they may be the worst fitting group of players I've ever seen. It's not hyperbole to say that Harden and Kyrie are two of the most abysmal off-ball players in the NBA. Both of them are gonna need to drastically change their playstyles for this to work. This isn't even touching on their defense. They have zero wing defenders. Who on this Net's team is gonna stop Lebron from bulldozing this team? Joe Harris? Landry Shamet? It'll be interesting to see if this much raw talent is enough to cover for what could be crippling deficiencies.

Forget Lebron, who on that team is going to stop Jayson Tatum? ;D

This sounds more like a team that the 3 Amigos constructed themselves than any GM.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

Add any great wing player, and the Nets probably won't be able to stop them. Combined with the fact they're relying on an old DeAndre Jordan to defend the paint? Looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

Maybe Kyrie is truly going to sit out the season and Nets had no choice but to give up a decade of picks.

Remember in June of 2020, he tried to get all the players to quit the season and focus on racial injustice(respect that intention but don't agree with approach).

https://www.boston.com/sports/nba/2020/06/13/kyrie-irving-nba-restart-racial-justice-plan

Maybe his desire to make change has taken precedence over a game where he gets paid like royalty. If so, the Rockets should thank  Kyrie for the heist of picks.

Time will tell what is truly going on but I know I hate the Nets more than ever.

Look forward to Tatum and Brown facing them!

Does this mean that we can get Allen for the Cavs?

Gotta think he's their center of the future. Fits great with Sexton, Garland, and Okoro. The old guys - Love and Drummond - totally available probably.
