    Obviously. You're all aging veterans past your prime, and RFX'd need a clause preventing pre-game speeches. Plus I can go to SW&D and find a few rookie deals willing to play if I cover their T0J losses.

    True, but we'll lead the league in veteran savvy and Ben-Gay (yeah, I know) usage rates.

    Half of the players drafted top10 turn out mediocre- so yes this draft has a big bust potential. Say like 50%.

    Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis both agree to 5-year extensions with their respective teams. Kawhi's deal is $90 million and AD's is a whopping $145 million.

    I suppose some of the above are mediocre, although a few were just flat out terrible matched only by Mouhamed Sene (2006 - #10), Yi Jianlian (2007 - #7), Hasheem Thabeet (2009 - #2), and Jonny Flynn (2009 - #6) from the same drafts. Add Oden if you want.

    Actually, pretty much every white or non-American big guy in the top 10 has been really bad (and Oden due to injury).

    Danny Green re-signs with SA for 4 years, $45 mil and Tiago Splitter is traded to the Hawks, presumably to clear cap room for LMA.

    And stop namor from drafting Curry and Davis again.

    In other news, is anyone out of their fucking mind enough to offer Tobias Harris a max deal? Albatross!

    Today many teams and players will sign contracts and make deals that will help them in pursuit of a championship. The Kings, on the otherhand are hiring lawyers to find a loophole in coach's contract

    You cant get worse than the Maloofs but that hasnt stopped Vivek from trying

    Cavs have re-signed both Tristan Thompson and K-Love.

    Thompson's deal: 4 years, $80 million.

    Love's deal: 5 years, $110 million.

    Dan Gilbert be like (not really because of the rising cap next season, but I just felt like using the following GIF)
