  1. Jonas Valanciunas 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Toronto supporter here. They won't give that many minutes to Val when it counts. He is an old school player like Vuc, no rim protection and you have to Chuck him the ball on offense (Vuc has a three now). I figure they find some special small ball lineups in Toronto. I got Taj basically for free last year. So I am biased towards him too.
  2. Brandon Knight 2018-19 Outlook

    To be honest the strat is to pick BK with your last pick and then dump him for Okobo if things turn bad. No point drafting Okobo unless your league is that deep.
  3. Kawhi Leonard 2018-19 Season Thread

    Do people see Danny Ainge as a winner? He sold Isaiah Thomas in a similar, though not identical situation. I think winning will make people forget and going to the finals will make the public forgive Mejiri. I think Kawhi will have a break out contract year. Even if he wants to move to LA, he needs to play like a max contract player to get that money. There's no point of risking that money by sitting around.
  4. This year is crazy with olayer movement. OG and Danny green numbers should change from your list already. I would imagine more changes to come.
  5. Brandon Knight 2018-19 Outlook

    Only gone 1 year. If he can't fit into this team system however, he will be relegated quickly to the bench as an instant offense option. BK has to prove himself after his injury.
  6. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    I sure hope so. We don't have any RWB players on our squad to throw parties for Kawhi though. Maybe our other GM Drake can do that.
  7. True, Trae Young has good potential but a very low floor because of that.
  8. About your second paragraph though, the guy ended up shooting under 40% for the summer league. Granted I didn't watch anything but his highlights, I am not that sure about his offensive ability yet. Hopefully he will have a Shawn Marion type of shot, weird but goes in all the same.
  9. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    Yeah you are right, it is pretty bad if he can play in training camp but refuse to play for the Spurs. Definitely no (fake) leg injury anymore.
  10. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    So looks like kawhi is not moving on from the Spurs? Or something is going to happen soon?
  11. I have him in dynasty and I don't love that Hayward and Irving are going to be in the mix. However, he should be a starter and they would probably look to him as the 2 or 3rd option when Irving is on the bench or on the floor respectively. As well, they could try to play him on the 4 spot. Also I think that Irving is definitely going to be shutdown well before the playoffs. BOS can afford it in the weak East and Kyrie has to be kidding himself if he thinks BOS will let him get injured in the regular season and just to lose in the playoffs. Should allow Tatum to be unleashed come Fantasy playoff time.

    It is exactly that but it's not like management operates on pure logic.
  13. I don't think Gordon will ever play the 3 again because the year they tried it was a disaster. They may try to move AG if Isaac proves himself better. It's kinda unlikely though cause AG just got a decent long term contract signed.

    Maybe from the Kings who see to be the guys upping everyone's price? Jk
  15. Jamal Murray 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I think everybody knows he's good. Hold on to him through the cold streaks or pitch offers to opponents to get Murray if he is on a cold streak.
  16. Probably Luka but then runner up is JJJ. Players like Mo Bamba & Bagley are stuck in organizations that are subpar. Kings & Magic didn't lack talent but made questionable management mistakes that may hurt player development.
  17. NBA Summer League 2018 Discussion Thread

    Is he just a young Isaiah Thomas then? Except Trae needs some time to find his shot again.
  18. His play style though hurts his body, which I don't think is as strong as guys like RWB or even Wall. Even if he is not injured, the kids gloves the Kings will have him on means he's missing games in his sophomore year. There were also stretches of games where he just played injured and helped nobody. I agree he looks better but I will take the next best choice on draft day.
  19. 2018-2019 Breakout Candidates

    Agree with this. Or any young player in Cavs to be honest. Love should be gone soon, latest by the trade deadline probably.
  20. NBA Summer League 2018 Discussion Thread

    De'Aaron Fox is out of the summer league because of his Achilles issue. Seriously this kid is only starting his second year but already has an injury prone reputation. I am not drafting him this year but someone probably will overpay for him due to his upside on a bad team.
  21. NBA Summer League 2018 Discussion Thread

    Did you get a look at Georges Niang? He seems to be a making some noise.
  22. 2018 NBA Offseason and Free Agency Thread

    Yeah I can see that after all the moves recently. They are not getting any quality and regular sized PG's this year. However, I think they are will embrace the tank this year and if they trade Vuc or Fournier it will definitely confirm that. If they are tanking, they might just take a cheaper PG project with upside instead.
  23. Frank Ntilikina 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Frank should have a great development year. They don't have KP till December so surely no one will fault them to just tank this year. Not worried about the depth of pg because Frank is just more talented and has upside even the Knicks org can see (I hope)
  24. Demarcus Cousins 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Do you think Cousins rushed his decision though? After it was announced that Boogie was headed to the Warriors, it was reported that the other team he was considering was Boston. However, per Himmelsbach's league source, the Celtics heard Cousins might have interest in Boston, but by the time they started to look into it, he had agreed to a deal with Golden State It sounds like it is plausible Cousins got impatient. However, it could be as you said GM's trying to control their image through the media outlets.
  25. NBA Summer League 2018 Discussion Thread

    Yeah I am not sold on his jump shot either but we will see what happens on his next 2 games. The scouting report said correctly that his 3pt shot was good when his feet are set. That seemed to be the case with the shots in this game. He starts his jump shot with the ball in front of his face right now.
