    Draft Hunter, sign a free agent. Don't want AD. They'll ask for the moon, and his contract will take up our cap space, plus our roster would be bare after the trade.

    I still think AD winds up in LA. They were lucky enough to get the #1 pick so they need to build around Zion.

    Boston is likely out. I just can't see them dealing for Davis unless Kyrie returns, and I don't see Kyrie returning. Any deal for AD would involve Jayson Tatum and several of those draft picks, none of which are that appealing (#14, #20 and #22). So if Boston made a deal, they just don't have much left to go along with him and they risk losing him for nothing.

    I don't see NY as an option either, *unless* they sign KD and Kyrie. At that point it's just a matter of how many pieces can NY hold onto in any deal.

    But with LA, they can deal the #4 pick (30 days after the selection is made) as well as a few young players, say Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball as well as a 2020+2022 first round pick and I think that trumps a NY offer. We can offer the #3 pick but Kevin Knox and Dennis Smith Jr., just aren't as good. Frank Ntilikina has no value and the Knicks should try and hold onto Mitchel Robinson. They do have the advantage of owning an unprotected Mavs pick in 2021 as well as their own 2020 pick they can deal, but a LA has better assets imo.

    If we trade Ball, we have no pg. And any trade for AD uses much of the cap space. I don't want just Lebron & AD, with nothing else left on the roster. Use the cap space for a free agent. Either Kyrie Irving, Kawhi, Kemba Walker, Jimmy Butler, or spread it out on lower tier free agents. Alot of speculation on Kyrie reuniting with Lebron, and with Kidd on staff, who Kyrie likes.

    I am intrigued with De'Andre Hunter at #4.

    Any trade for AD would likely be 30 days after the draft. This would allow LA to sign Kyrie or Kemba to play PG and then deal the #4 pick, Ball and Ingram to NO. A bit more filler may be needed to match salaries.

    NO will want all our young core. Plus 2-3 draft pics i'm guessing.

    LeBron is your point effectively.

    Ball is severely limited.

    There’s a reason why the Lakers brought on Rondo to try and facilitate the offense.

    Yea, a combination of AD (26) and Kyrie (27) to go with Lebron needs to be the priority. If the Knicks are lucky enough to add KD and let's say Kemba Walker, then those are the only 2 teams I can see AD playing for next year.

    I think Boston should wait and see what becomes of the Grizzlies pick before making a move. That right now is there most valuable asset as it could potentially become fully unprotected. That coupled with the fact that both Tatum and Brown have lost trade value this makes it not the right time to deal. And I dont know that Davis is the guy you cash in chips for.

    They are going to lose Kyrie. IMO there best bet is to see where you could go with Hayward/Tatum/Brown, bring Rozier back and reassess in 2020 when you have some finality on that Grizzlies pick.

    I don’t know. RJ Barrett is a much better prospect than past Duke prospects Jabari Parker and Brandon Ingram.

    Warriors have locked down Lillard with double teams. Dude needs to find a way to beat their traps.

    Ingram? The guy is 6-9, can play sf/pg, can play on both ends of the floor. Ingram is a stud and will be a future all star.

    The two aren't mutually exclusive, but Barrett was the better player while in college.

    Barrett averaged more points, more rebound and more assists at Duke. Ingram shot much better from 3, but that's about it outside of shot blocking which didn't translate to the NBA for Ingram.

    The NBA is so unpredictable nobody thought golden state would reach the finals.

    It’s what you call a “dynasty”.

    Golden State will go down in history as possibly the greatest team to ever play. At the VERY least, they’ll be in the conversation.

    In the meantime, fans of the other 29 teams can whine and cry about how lame the NBA is.

    LOL everyone cried about Kevin Durant “ruining the league” when he went to Golden State... then the 2017 Finals were the highest-rated Finals since 1998.
    :laugh:

    Talking about Ingram now. The guy was playing his best ball before the diagnosis he had. He's a unique player who'll keep getting better.
