NBA 2019-2020 Season

Recommended Posts

With free agency set to begin tomorrow, I think it's time to start a new topic.

Kemba Walker is expected to sign with the Boston Celtics. So much for giving the Hornets a homedown discount.

Nikola Mirotic is expected to sign with Barcelona of the Euroleague. Did not see that one coming.

Warriors are going to give Klay Thompson a max contract, while Durant is taking meetings with the Knicks, Clippers, and Warriors.

Kawhi Leonard is also meeting with the Clippers, along with the Lakers and the Raptors.

Kyrie Irving is trying to get something done with the Nets.

Derrick Favors is going to open up free agency taking calls from whoever, although the Jazz have until July 6th to guarantee his contract or make him an unrestricted free agent. The Jazz are expected to meet with Bobby Portis in LA tomorrow. I'm sure the talks there will decide what we do with Favors.

Bunch of other rumors out there too but that covers a lot of them, I think. Should be a fun summer.

In another insane piece of news, Darren Collison is forgoing big contracts and has retired to spend the rest of his life in the service of god with the Jehova Witnesses.

I saw he was retiring yesterday but never read the article about why. That's actually pretty cool and something I can totally respect.

I'm only really getting to understand the NBA cap and roster construction but looking at where the Hornets are, giving Kemba a supermax is definitely not worth it to me.

They won't be competitive for the life of that contract anyway and it'll hamstring their ability to get assets and younger players while Kemba can still go.

From a T-Wolves standpoint we're trying to find a trade victim partner for Andrew Wiggins which would free up the cap space needed for D'Lo Russell to sign and play with his buddy KAT. Sounds like a good turn of events if it happens, so I will instead expect that we somehow end up trading KAT to the Nets by mistake.

Sad to see D'lo go after what he's given us the past two years but Kyrie coming to Brooklyn takes us to that next level that I wouldn't have expected to see happen so soon. Should be interesting to see where D'lo goes and how he develops after having a breakout All-Star season.

Apparently, 40% of NBA players will go into the free agency pool this year, sounds mental.

It is. But something like only half the teams have more than ten million dollars in cap space. It's going to be an insane year.

I will never understand why any team would want to give any player a super max contract. It takes up so much cap space and would hinder any team on building a good team. And if they get hurt, (John Wall), you're screwed.

Apparently, the Jazz were set to offer Nikola Mirotic a three year deal worth $45 million but he is determined to make a major change and return to Europe.

Fuck Kyrie

I agree. And add Kawhi to that if he signs with the Clippers.

Who the hell gets mad at someone for signing with the Clippers?

For me, it's the fact that he would go there after winning a championship with Toronto. Like, I get wanting to play in LA and all that but...the Clippers? You're going to leave a championship caliper team to join a team that is no where close to a championship?

I guess the Pistons are the front runner to sign Derek Rose. I don’t mind this signing at all, he looked good last year and could be a really nice sixth man.

He was traded to Toronto and won a championship.

Kawhi's job is done there. Why would anyone begrudge him the chance to go play at home for a team of his choice? Man's personal life is important too.

But Kawhi's sister's friend's mechanic's butcher said Kawhi was staying put in Toronto!

GM thinks of pro athletes as pieces of meat that should just do what they're told. I don't think he has, or ever will, see them as actual people.

Boston is trying to work a 3 way sign and trade

 

Boston gets: Kemba

Brooklyn gets: Kyrie

Charlotte gets: Rozier

 

I don't understand the point of this. It's just a money thing right?

Pretty much. In order to sign Kemba, they need to clear the cap space, which would include giving up the bird rights to Kyrie, plus having to waive Rozier. But, doing a sign and trade with Charlotte and Brooklyn, everybody gets what they want and it's under the cap.

Correct. It doesn't make much sense for Brooklyn. It would enable Boston to not only get Kemba, but still have enough room to re-sign Al Horford. So, Brooklyn would be getting a player that they are probably going to sign anyway, and they help out a division rival.

EDIT: Not sure that trade is going to happen, however. ESPN is reporting that Brooklyn is going to sign Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and DeAndre Jordan tonight.

      Figured since the first big move of the off season just happened and with the draft tomorrow, it would be ok to start a new season thread. 
      The Hornets have agreed to trade Dwight Howard to the Nets for Timothy Mozgov.

      Couldn't find a thread for this coming season, so.
      I need help. It appears the League Pass option where I could pay relatively little and choose any 8 games a month is gone (boooo). And I don't want to pay £25 a month. So the £15 option is to pick a single team. Thing is I've never really settled on a team to follow/support. So I need to choose a team that's going to be an entertaining watch this year, plenty of exciting/close games. I'd also rather not watch the top few teams spend half the season dominating their opponents.
      So who would people advise I consider?
      I've thought about the Thunder but not a huge fan of Westbrook, same for the Rockets and Harden. I thought about the Bucks but Giannis doesn't reason enough on his own. Hell, I've considered LAL for the freakin' circus show of it all this year but I just can't.
      So who EWB? Who? Please help. Who's going to be a fun team to watch this year?

      Kyrie Irving is the standard edition cover star, DeMar DeRozan is the Canadian edition cover star and Shaq is on the standard and gold Legend editions.

      MyLeague is my favorite mode in the 2K games, so adding a story + G-League and new CBA stuff like supermax deals has me pretty hyped.
