Nba Free Agency

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

What is your take on NBA free agency?


With all of the big names on the move this year its looking more and more like we're going to have nothing but a handful of super teams in big market cities.  If you're a fan outside of those markets whats going to be the draw to get you to buy a ticket or even watch your team on tv?  

 

The Wolves may have been in a position to lure some talent to partner with KAT had they not signed Wiggins and Dieng to such awful contracts.  We're basically dead in the water until we can find someone to take Wiggins.

It has been a crazy time watching all the players change teams and frustrating to watch the Wolves have to sit and do nothing due to the fact of bad contracts to bad players!  Would have to think that if the Wolves couldn't move Wiggins now, unless he changes his aggression, they will be stuck with him for the duration of the contract eating up KAT's big years so when KAT becomes a free agent he will feel bad about wasting years here and will probably bounce.  For the rest of this free agency it will be interesting to see what the Lakers fill out the rest of their roster and where Kawhi lands.  Fun Fun FUN

If they can't get KAT some help he'll likely be gone once his contract is up.  Actually we'll be lucky if he finishes his deal without forcing his way out in a trade. 

 

I don't see any real way of getting rid of Wiggins.  If you did trade him and his contract you'd have to put in some huge sweeteners into the deal, at minimum some first round picks.  

 

Its a good time to be a Nets fan, Lakers fan, and Warriors fan.  Not a good time to be a fan of any other team.

Wolves won’t be going to the playoffs anytime soon. We are making some good moves with the limited resources we have though. But until Wiggins is gone, we’re hoping for high draft picks.

 

If Kawhi signs with the lakers, what’s the point in even having a regular season next year? Last year the season went exactly how everyone thought...warriors went to the finals, and would have won if not for the injuries in the playoffs. I can’t stand LeBron, so I hope Kawhi stays in Toronto.

Kawhi staying in Toronto is really the only hope we have of some parity in the NBA.  Brooklyn might take a year before they are set with Durant out next season, the Warriors will be without Klay for the bulk of next season and they'll likely have to play with a bunch of misfits to fill out the roster since the bulk of their payroll is tied up in 3 players.  If Kawhi goes to the Lakers it could be a pointless season.  The Lakers could sleep walk their way to a title.  

 

Hopefully the wolves play the 3-4 year game. There is no window right now given the 3 super teams that are forming unless they get lucky and draft a superstar in the next year or two (hard to say that with a straight face).  The trouble with that is how do you keep KAT happy in the interim?  Hopefully he can buy into the long term plans and see that their is no window right now.

When Kawhi inevitably leaves Toronto, they would be able to take on Wiggins contract and the trade does make sense in that scenario. 

 

Rumor has it, the three players we just signed may be used in a salary dump trade. I'd like to keep Bell, but would be happy to trade any (or all) of them to get rid of Wiggins' contract. 

 

3-4 year focus is a must for the Wolves. No sense in taking large contracts to screw us over for years to come. We now have a young core and if we focus on the 2020 PG saturated draft, we can be a strong playoff team in 3-4 years. That still allows 1-2 years on KAT's contract to get a ring.

The 2 players the wolves got from the Golden State we're a salary dump for the warriors so they could sign Russel.  Their contracts aren't guaranteed so the wolves could dump them or package them in another trade or maybe they make the roster.  No real risk for the Wolves and its nice to have options.  Time will tell how valuable they end up being. 

 

As for Bell he can't be traded until December 15th at the earliest since you can't sign a free agent and trade him before then.

Was pleasantly surprised to wake up and see the news of Leonard signing with the clippers. And also trading for Paul George!  That’s like a double kick in the pants to the lakers! 

 

Lakers were able to use all that extra money to at least fill out their roster. Not great players, but a significant upgrade to settling with 2nd round draft picks, which was the original plan if they signed Leonard.

 

There’s actually some parody in the west for the first time in 5 years! Lakers, clippers, warriors, jazz, nuggets, and rockets all have a chance to make it to the finals.

 

Can’t wait to watch “undisputed” on Monday. Skip Bayless is going to have a field day on Shannon Sharpe.

    • SM is in the game now too. Good- it has a pilot point. Bad- it has Lazer blades. Probably won’t be good in a permanent house for reopening holes. I sure wish Eskimo would wake up and add a point. 
    • Perfect live in cambridge will get to you after you get back. Thanks
    • Just killing the smallies this morning. First three fish were 16, 14, and 14.  Two weekend ago caught 5 in an hour. Smallest was 12 inches. 
    • Won't work! I have an electric heater in my 6.5' x 12' "non sleeper" wheel house, 3" insulated top, sides & bottom, tyvek wrapped. Electric heater's are 1,500 watt (leech post above). It takes about 3 hours to raise the temp from 0, or below to 60 deg. I plug it in at home the night before to pre heat the inside for next day fishing. Also get cabin/motel on overnight trips, and remove WH each night, plug in heater overnight clean fish and keep warm for next day.  The top shelf 2000 watt Honda @ $1,100 has a STARTING watt of 2000 & RUNNING watt of 1,600 watt. If I recall, you used pink poly hard foam on roof & sides with no insulation on floor. Pink Poly 2" is 7.5R for walls & roof, 0 on floor. My R factor is 13.5 fully insulated. Your electric heater will run 100% of time using Max power from a 2000 watt generator and be lucky to get above 50 deg. Last summer I put a 19,000 BTU Suburban $318.00 new in my house. At -14 deg. it ran 22 min per hour. I get about 65 hrs of fish time on a 20# tank at below 0 temps. Suburban price now gone up a bit but you can do better if you shop around.

    • LED lights and newer tv will use very little electricity but unless your house is foamed tight from roof to floor do not even think it. You will be very slow to get to temp and have a tough time keeping it there. Buy a used small VENTED propane heater and be safe and warm. Used ones have to be at rummage sales for 50-100 bucks. Then buy the thru the wall or suburban style when you can afford it.

    • Impractable - your on Mille Lacs, sky getting dark, you pick up an AIS signal on your app 14 miles SW of your location heading north in your direction at 72 MPH. Amazed by the boat speed you call your buddy Joe one of two in MN who also has the AIS system & find out he is on 169 in his F150 heading to Leach, just forgot to turn off his chart plotter after bragging about his new $900 AIS with his neighbor before leaving home, you know the guy that has to have every electronic available. All those dozen or so guys in there 14' Lunds cranked up there Scott Attwaters and are heading to shore at the frightening speed of 4 MPH trying to beat the on-coming storm and 4' waves. They really have no desire for those newfangled useless things.

    • One more REPRESENT.  Too hot for the hoody. 😓   The winds got up on Erie too much to make a good run to better water but we still wanted to fish.  We hung around the breakwalls and got sheepies and smallies.  No matter what we caught was going to be C&R for me so a bunch of these were fine.   And a quick shot of the falls.  That water is moving incredibly fast!   Almost done with the loop.  I’m coming back on the Canadian side of the Great Lakes.  There are some really beautiful areas up here.   BTW, the section of NY State from the Allegheny Mountains to Buffalo made me feel at home.  Very similar to areas of MN.  I guess that’s why people like it so much!
