Thunder shopping Ibaka apparently!
Isla will apprently be a wing back in QPRs 3-5-2, so will have a chance to do some things in the final third, while being listed as a defender! ($$$$$$$).

Aluko will be playing upfront in place of Long, but is listed as a midfielder! ($$$$$$$).

I thank you  :smug:

Would be a mighty fine fit for Toronto. Thunder probably want players more than they want draft picks though.

Yeah, think they're trying to get players.

Can I just say I love what the Pacers have done.

Thaddeus Young and Jeff Teague are really good acquisitions. Really good players that are somewhat underrated IMO.

Toronto could try to flip the #9 and change for say... Kris Middleton, who seems to be on the market, then use him to trade for Ibaka. Thunder would absolutely love him.

Good shout. Really looking forward to tonight.

If you guys get Dunn you should be happy. Saw quite a bit of him last year. Very modern day point guard. Bit of a John Wall type.

You guys can afford to ditch Smart, Rozier and even Thomas IMO.

We've already seen with the Noel/Embiid/Okafor situation in Philly how overlapping assets depreciate. It's not going to be easy to get anything of worth for Smart or Rozier or Bradley or even Thomas when people know we have to get one off the roster.

Doesn't surprise me, He was such a small factor compared to Adams and doesn't have much of a role on the offence anymore. Plus they need pay Durant this year and Westbrook/Adams next year.

True. Guess we'll see what happens. Ainge needs to have a good night.

If it comes down to Dunn or Jaylen Brown, as has been speculated, I'd be more concerned about Brown. Not convinced by him at all. Looks like he is far from ready.

I can't understand why he won't just take Bender to be honest. (I guess he still might.) He's not ideal for us but you might as well take a flier on him if your other options are "our 4th small, defensive guard" or "worst WARP projection for a top 10 pick ever"

I am watching an old video of Arvydas Sabonis with baby Domantas on NBA TV. It is freaking adorable and I now want us to draft him.

I don't know why the Celtics purposely abstain from just taking the white dude. Y'all know you want to.

Because there aren't a lot of undersized white combo guards that are good at defense and can't shoot

Didn't realize that Dunn was from the same part of Connecticut that I grew up in. His dad and my dad went to the same college.

Please don't be a Celtic. Please don't be a Celtic. Please don't be a Celtic.

Dallas pursuing Mike Conley and Hassan Whiteside. That would be great for them if they land those two.

Okay, okay ... looks like the guys are dressed more sensibly than their NFL counterparts. Thank God. I really don't want to have this ruined by horrifically garish outfits.

Although I have just now seen Labissiere wearing some thing absolutely horrific. Stupid boy. Will probably cost him at least ten places in the draft.

At least Dunn can play, and looks like he can straight away. Just find a way to ditch your current guards, except Bradley who I really like, and you'll be good man.

Plus Dunn is looking sharp. Dressed very well. Right amount of swag. He clearly has a big future.

The only acceptable scenario for Dunn is if a trade to move other guards is already in place. After last year I'm 100% confident that no team is ever trading anything with us ever again.
