I think the Jazz and Lakers are in the trenches of PR/leverage warfare. Much like the Knicks deal that didn’t end up happening, the stare down is a free tactic until training camp. We’ll see what happens as we get nearer.

I have my doubts that Danny’s gonna be able to even land stars in a trade in their supposed plan cuz the dude just cultivates grievance and it’s easy to miss out when good faith is in short supply.
That is where JZ comes in... classic good cop bad cop. JZ even talks **** about Danny with the other teams... its like the sales guy/ finance guy/Manager tag team at car dealerships. Sales guy is the buddy... keeps going back to the manager for approval of things... finance guy hits you up and puts the high pressure to buy windshield wiper insurance. It works.

With the Lakers I think you can stare them down because they are a week away from having their bluff called. If we bow out they are now in a staring contest with Indiana. And honestly I'd love to get those Lakers picks but I will also be fine with getting a first for Bogey and some seconds for JC and then rolling with Mike and Beasley into the season. Malik is kind of a low risk high reward dude. Has a team option so if he plays well he has good value... if he sucks you just don't pick up the option. He is absolutely a guy that can get smoking hot for a month and score 20 a game in our situation... and you end up parlaying him for a first.

With Mike the hate has gone way too far. He had a ****** playoff on a team full of ****** playoff performances. He should be one of the main guys LA wants if they are smart.

Markannen can be aggregated in October. Just FYI
We ain't trading Lauri or Collin unless someone gives us a **** ton for them. They are perfect for a rebuild project. Could really show what they have. Like unless someone gives you two unprotected picks or a ****** team like Sacramento gives you a first for one of them... they will be here for this year.

I don't think Trader Danny is above trading anyone... but unless one of these guys becomes superfluous (like if we took Scoot). I doubt they are on the block.

I legit thought this season would suck... but guys like Sexton, Lauri, Simone, Ochai are going to be fun to watch... I am curious on Kessler but I don't think he will be "fun"... he might be good.

I wonder if the Suns make a Bogey trade to deflect from the Sarver noise? Maybe they just want to lay low. NBA releasing their decision the week football starts is some nice PR work... should have waited until friday afternoon though.

I wonder if it gives James Jones a little more freedom to do some things.

I'm not particularly excited about Bolmaro... fine with keeping him... but I wonder if you could swing a Bolmaro/NAW deal to Indiana or SA and just have them absorb them into cap space. Maybe you could do the same thing with JB (though I'm still not selling my JB stock). Would give us some breathing room from the tax and alleviate the roster crunch. Johnson to Boston seems like something that should happen... I think we'd like to keep a roster spot open to churn a few prospects and find some gold maybe.

Don't know how this works now.... I do know I went to pickup this AM and one of my buddies who is a Suns fan was super geeked about the prospect of adding Bogey. I told him hes crazy underrated and he should be excited if it happens.

This is a little off topic but it reminded me of something I wanted to say earlier. The amount of NBA fans that have no idea how **** works is kind of mind blowing to me. That is probably the norm but there are Heat fans saying Bogey isn’t worth Robinson and a 1st because they’re similar players… like no mother****ers they aren’t similar and you’d be lucky for a deal like that. I don’t think people understand negative contracts and things of that sort.

That is what separates us and this place from others though. High quality (majority of the time) discussion and understanding.

I also wondered if Bolmaro is someone the Jazz are valuing highly or if he might be someone they use to maybe offload NAW or Gay (a bit optimistic but who knows).

For what its worth I had a dream Gay got traded and I was surprised it was for like an expiring deal and nothing else attached... so my dreams are about pointless nba trades... boo....
Handlogten... who are you kidding. You are constantly having Gay dreams.
