Looks like David Lee is going to Boston.

For Gerald Green? WTF? Boston took GSW to the cleaners.

Gerald Wallace, not Green.

that's a good deal for both sides. warriors save money. celtics get a decent player

I feel like David Lee is worth around something like a first rounder. He's still a very good player. But I understand that GSW needed to part ways at whatever price, so they were in a bad negotiating position

They're probably going to use the stretch provision to take the $10.5 mil to Wallace over the next 3 years which they couldn't do with D Lee's contract. IDFNL - if you can't appreciate this move, you are the worst GM in the world as it will save them around $41 million in luxury tax!

Plus, I'll say it, Boston seems like the kind of town that appreciates anglo basketball players so D Lee is a great fit for them.

EDIT: Some are reporting the W's won't stretch Wallace in which case they will *only* save $23 million next year in salary and luxury tax.

Of course I understand the stretch provision, but I don't really view that as fair value. David Lee is a very good player, they should have gotten a lot more for him.

Sacramento, on the other hand, clearly does not understand the stretch provision.

^Is D Lee worth more than $40 million in savings?

but will D Lee leaving be like when Granger left and Pacers imploded?

Unlikely. He doesn't seem to have the same presence in the locker room. Boston got a very good player for very little.

Ay @Steve B., I think it's time to change the thread title to 2015-2016, yeah?

apparently, twitter is blowing up with this, with lots of different clip players posting travel emojis. blake griffin, cp3, jjj reddick, etc., of how they're going to get to Houston for the meeting. as a clipper fan, i hope it works. but it would be something ... landing cp3 with a controversy, then keeping dj with another one.

it's not illegal for DJ to go back on his word?
