I've actually thought about that first one... I can't decide if RoCo is good. I'd want a first in that deal too if we did it. Conley would make a lot of sense for the Wolves. Dieng has played better in a starting role but I'm not sure he's some big upgrade as a backup... mild upgrade with a ****** contract. I could see the Wolves throwing in a first for Mike if that was the deal.
Covington in some ways is like an older version of Royce... except 3 or 4 inches taller.

He gets a lot of deflections and he shoots worse... but more than Royce. I could see it working well, but he's not a lock down suffocating defender. He has been injury prone and I just remember him struggling in the playoffs. Like... he's useful for sure, but I'm not sure he's as good as 3 and D guys like Danny Green.

I agree. However, he would be a defensive upgrade at our weakest spot, PF.
edit: an added benefit of trading for him would be that he doesn't end up on the Lakers.

Teague was expiring... Wiggins is not a guy you build around... Teague fits with Wiggins and Towns better than Crabbe.

There might be some draft capital in the deal that changes it... Teague may have been done with them and wanted out... or they may have a follow up deal in the works.
Nah... Basically for every season Wiggins has posted better scoring stats with Teague off the floor and he was averaging career highs before Teague joined the team then his stats went rock bottom. Even the organization acknowledge the fact that teague is a ball hog who doesnt fit with Wiggins so they've been trying to get rid of him all season long.

I think he is definitely available and I think they are feeling pressure to have progress. I don't think they'd have a problem adding a pick to a deal... Not sure KAT would be happy about trading RoCo for expirings and draft capital.

So I'm just going to go ahead and lobby for Al Horford (even though he is likely unavailable [now]) or Kevin Love.

Yeah, it could get ugly on the backend. But our window is the next two years and I think we should go for it. I'd rather try to figure out a lineup that's too big and have the insurance rather than figure out a lineup that's too small and way too guard heavy.

If you could throw Davis in the deal (which I think you could with Love), you save >$6 million in salary next year (provided Conley would've opted in). That should be enough to keep Clarkson, Royce, and roll into free agency with the full MLE.

Come at me.

I wouldn't do either of those deals. I'd rather have Conley... if we really wanted to I think we could do RoCo/Dieng for Conley and its a better deal or if we wanted the monster contract for a superstar I'd try do Conley for CP3.

I think we are right there, but need the Lakers or Clips to not be 100% (which is entirely possible) to get out of the west. I think we actually can play the Bucks really well. I agree we should push these next couple years but definitely a no on Love... Al Horford would really help the backup center situation and could be really helpful against the Lakers. Sixers will trade one of their main guys in the next 13 months... I have no idea which one.

Sounds like Wolves are still sweet on DLo… watch those stupid assholes pay 150% to the warriors in a trade this offseason and set those douches up for another great run.

Mini-deal of Mudiay to wolves for Vonleh and a second or into their new trade exception and a second. You only do the deal if adding seconds helps us get the backup big we need.

Horford sucks now. He’s bad.

MIN's about to make a stupid and desperate move again.
MIN, WAS, PHO, CLE, NYK... These are terribly run clubs with cheap or incompetent owners. HOU's new owner has potential too. I'd stay sleepless to take advantage of any opportunity these idiots could provide. So Utah should be proactive and even aggressive, which is better than "we'll wait and take the phone calls" strategy particularly for a club that struggles to sign FAs.

Dunc'd On had a Northwest Division trade podcast. Pretty much said the Jazz already made their move with the Clarkson trade. Jazz need a backup center, but that will most likely come from the buyout market. Would like to see the Jazz get a rim running big who can play above the rim so the second units can play a similar style to the starting lineup. Tough to trade for a big piece since we don't have any intriguing young talent, and teams will treat any first round pick we have as a 2024 pick.

Add Philly in there... they are extremely reactionary and have lots of bad vibes and were always a terrible fit with each other. They might do weird stuff but its likely this summer.

Charania said market is heating up for Covington. Houston, Philly, Dallas are most serious, but Minny is gonna drive a hard bargain
