Don't leak my trades!

My favourite part is that the Trade Machine's formula has Memphis losing 2 wins with this deal

That was the plan, but all the good ones are taken. :(

Meh, who am I kidding here? Of course I'm gonna take a team! Gimme the Pels!

The front office is entertaining offers for either Randle or Mirotic. We've been looking for a SF since god knows when. It's about time we acquire one.

Oh, and AD is off the market. You hear that gouki88? No AD to the Fakers on my watch. :P

I think that's 11. Need at least a few more to make it fun.

Maybe people are discouraged? Last year the game got a little messy with people not answering messages or failing to comply to a guaranteed deal. Also there was some confusion whether deals were viable and the commissioner made some decisions that not everybody liked.

It's also a game that can take up some time.

Maybe a positive spirit can encourage people to play the game.

So a TP for the next guy that takes a team!

 Woj reporting the Atlanta Hawks are gauging interest of their top 5 selection in the 2019 NBA draft.

This was my fear as well. I also wonder if users switched to different forums and Reddit recently.

I made a couple tough calls, including one where I though Lebron wouldn’t want to be traded to the Lakers for all their assets.

Still, I’m willing to take less of a significant role in making that decision, if that is the reason why others won’t sign up.

Still, we are down 16-17 gms this year from last year.

Well, I expected more interest in this, but that's ok.

I'd like 2-3 more GMs at least. Then we can all take a second team and get started.

Reports put of Dallas is that Cuban has everyone on the table excluding Luka and Dirk.

First round picks and youth to pair with the dynamic young wing doncic is prime area of interest.

If anyone is on the fence about this, this game has been very fun the last few years. It helps you do a deep dive on teams you normally would only know about their top few guys.

Also, could we do the same thing last year with seperate threads and a firm start date? It would be optimal to have 3 threads (last year was 2.) One rumor thread, one announcement thread and a discussion thread. If that would cause too much forum clutter I totally understand.

Yeah in my case it was kind of annoying because I felt I made some genius, fair trade ideas that I messaged folks about but never got a response back, even after I sent it a 2nd time.

That and to be honest I'm not a great GM LOL. I'm kind of like Gorman in that regard (apparently he never wanted to give up Jefferson for KG but obviously that looks like a no-brainer now)  :P

I personally wouldn't have made the Kyrie trade either at the time. So that's me lol.
