Thoughts on Kennard to Phx?

 

Means Svi and Bruce Brown Jr. have a clear ROS outlook. Whichever is your cup of tea.

 

I think Galloway and of course Drummond are about to be dealt too. Maybe Rose as well. Even though Reggie Jackson has an expiring, I doubt anyone wants that bum.

Talks centered around okobo and carter. Either fantasy relevant if they suddenly get 30+ min?

Assuming what Woj is saying is true (Phx wants him to be a 30 min floor spacer) then that would surely depress the value of Bridges or Oubre. Rubio's and Booker's minutes are untouchable (maybe Oubre's too).

Bridges is the new starting PF. Oubre's role is secure. Obviously Rubio and Booker too. I think it's going to be a shorter rotation.

Kennard sucks and can barely stay on the court. No idea why Phoenix is enamored. But to each their own.

That's more likely I guess. There could be 3-guard lineups where they go with Rubio/Booker/Kennard to close the game along with Bridges/Oubre at the 4 and Ayton at the 5 though.

Jevon Carter has some good games when given minutes so It could be good in DET   But there would be few SG/PG   RGX is **** he still would be getting 25-30 min per game as PG start or back up 

 

Elie Okobo I have no  idea what he can produce lol

Owner is a cheapskate and wants to shed salary. They can't trade Gordon this season and no way they move Russ or Harden so that leaves Capela only. He's not a big suited for today's game he cant shoot, hurts you at the line and this season has been hurt too much. Same reason why no one is jumping at the chance to acquire Drummond these 2 dudes are more of an old school big

What a bunch of nonsense, especially the part about Capela not fitting into today's game. Not every team has to have KAT (nor should they want to). Capela is elite at all phases of the pick and roll (people like you don't understand what that does to a defense, and how it creates better 3-point looks), very good for a center at defending it and very good at rim protection. At his age and with a reasonable deal with a few years on it, he's one of the best assets in the NBA that isn't on a rookie deal.

Yup.  It's not like the Wolves are even a playoff team.  If KAT was as good as say Jokic, he'd lead his team to at least the 8th seed like KG did for Minny.  The Wolves never have any fire, and Wiggins doesn't  help, but KAT isn't the leader.  Nowadays I think analytics are a bit extreme to push out bigs like Capela.  Most importantly his contract is amazing.  His agent should be fired for not getting a better deal from other teams.  I think maybe he should have gotten 5 mil more a year, but who knows about the market.  Regardless, the Rockets are shooting themselves in the foot by first trading for Westbrook (at least they were winning with CP3), with CP3 and Harden buddying up to fool the refs.  And now trading away Capela, I think they are so enamored with playing Tucker as a small ball center. 

Harden has never gotten better from turning over the ball less, and Westbrook shouldn't even be taking 3's right now.  They combine for 9 TOs a game.  Harden is 30, Westy is 31.  I wonder if Morey is just trying to trade for some draft picks/young prospects to retool on the fly.

PHX VP is the guy that selected Kennard ahead of Donovan Mitchell back in 17 when he was the GM of DET. Clearly still has a hard-on for him if he's willing to trade a first for a guy with a bum knee lol.

Lmao casual who’s never watched the Rockets. The guy is all lobs, has no shot how does he fit in today’s game fool? He’s been in the league sometime now and has never developed a shot and still stinks at the line. He’s such a “fit” that the Rockets are dying to get rid

That sucks to hear that Portland is not likely to make any moves. I guess they believe that Carmelo and Ariza will be their saviors and Lillard has to drop 50 rest of season. Also must feel confident they can re-sign Whiteside or make a deep playoff run before he walks because you don’t need Whiteside, Nurkic and Collins. 
 

Conley needs to be moved. Besides the fantasy posters on here looking for a homerun stash, everybody knows outside that Mitchell and Ingles run the show in Utah and make that team operate like it does.

 

Capela as much discussion in here about him. Unless they move Capela to Boston for either Kanter or Theis, running Tucker at the 5 is not going to win a Championship. I don’t care how successful the Warriors were successful running Draymond at the 5, the Rockets are not the Warriors (and it isn’t even close). Plus I still don’t understand why the Rockets need another wing in the trade for Capela. (Rivers, Mclemore, House, Gordon). 
 

Sucks, GSW turned down an Aaron Gordon for Russell trade. Clearly GSW messed up signing DLo thinking they was going to get something good in a trade when most teams know that they wasn’t planning on keeping him anyways.

Portland doesn't have much money.The Ariza move was a good fit (size on wing, defense, shooting), but it was a big cost cutting move as well.

Blazers most realistic move would be trading Hassan Whiteside. By moving him, even with his flaws, you'd basically be giving up on the season, since the piece coming back don't figure to be better than what Whiteside provides right now. Nurkic is not back yet, and won't be 100% this season. Behind Nurk you'd have very litttle depth.

Zach Collins, Nurk are coming back.If you want to make a run this season, you need all three big men. 

I had hopes the Blazers would move Baze+Tolliver+..? for Dedmon+Ariza or for Dieng+?. That would have put them in a position to consider moving Whiteside for an asset with a longer contract.

NOT making a move is the least disappointing move they could make. The way things are playing out right now, I'm cool with it. Next year, Simons (hopefull), Little (probably) and Trent will have taken another step as well. Hood will be back, Melo will probably be resigned.

Jrue. Won’t happen though, even with OG’s recent struggles; Masai does not want to trade the youngster.

He's also making $26M a year and kind of hurts our financial flexibility for 2021.

I would sacrifice financial flexibility and OG's potential for a top 5 two-way player. Jrue's addition would instantly make Raptors the favorites in the East unless Bucks added another star before the trade deadline.
