Top reading lads.

Happy enough with Valentine.

That OKC trade blew my mind. WTF Orlando.

Just happy that Butler is still a Bull after a crazy day.

tbf it was fair to get rid of Oladipo, but they could have got better

The Magic weren't going anywhere with a back court of Payton + Oladipo. Both good with potential, but not a good match seeing neither can shoot



Thats one reason why I am excited we got Murray, he can complement Mudiay if he never develops a jump shot.


Reckon the Magic could have or should have tried to swap Oladipo for Jimmy Butler in some way (maybe they did). Butler isn't a superb shooter but still better and more of a bonafide star.


Ibaka certainly improves the Magic immediately but it's stupid given he is out of contract after one season

I love Woj's work but I still find it disturbing that somewhere between teams discussing/making calls and Silver announcing the pick there is somebody within the NBA consistently leaking the pick to a reporter.

Not happy about missing out on yesterday. 10 hour day at work from 10am to 8pm means I missed out on all the fun of draft day. First draft day I have missed since 1995.

Only just finished reading this thread.

Good draft by Denver after picking up the hugely over rated Murray. A couple of weeks ago on Liberty Ballers I said I'd be happy with the Sixers pick if we walked away from the draft with Hernangomez and Beasley after picking Simmons first. Book it that Beasley has a better career and impacts sooner than Murray.


Like the Sixers picks. Really hope Korkmaz stays in Turkey for 2 more years.

Collison
McLemore/ Richardson
Gay/Casspi/ Butler
Cousins/ Moreland/ Labissiere
Koufos/ Caulie-Stein/ Papigiannas/ Gudiatis
Question mark on Collison seeing as he could end up in jail
I thought Eric Morelands contract finishes at the end of 15/16 season (further research shows he is owed $1.1M for the 16/17 season)
Gudiatis is going to be playing for Reno this
You also forgot Mitrovic - The other power forward acquired in the 76'ers trade from last season.
Duje Dukan is also still on the books for 16/17 season.
Why do people keep listing Cousins at PF. He will play C as he defence on the perimeter isnt good enough to cover the stretch 4.

Surely we are looking to trade Koufos, Labissiere, Gudiatis, Mitrovic in search of some guards.
Hopefully we re-sign Seth Curry
Vlade is keen to re-sign Rondo
Bogdan Bogdanovic surely wont sign for next season as he will be on a rookie scaled contract then. He will sign for the 17/18 season where he will get more money.

With all the cap space teams have i'm sure you could move Koufos reasonably easy if you wanted to. He's on a decent contract in the new cap world ~$8mill per year for two more years. Might not get much back for him, but if wanted to open playing time for people.
