    Griff did the best he could with the situation he was in. Billups is unproven, but he's a Detroit guy so the job is his. Gilbert didn't learn from the first time I guess. Pushing LeBron right out of town. Now I'm hearing Kyrie would want traded if LeBron leaves. Smh

      If Gordy bolts, the Jazz have tons of flexibility.....but Dennis Lindsey is a smooth and saavy GM. One of the best around.

      Hayward has to be re-signed....I feel confident he will, but I think the Jazz FO needs to make a splash and add a starter today. Favors and Burks contracts paired with a pick or two can net the Jazz someone good.
      Boston is getting better tonight, and Haywards home state Indiana is shaking things up with George.

      Exciting day in the NBA!

        Yep. The only team I see Hayward going to is Boston. I'm starting to think they're going to take Jackson though, and I'm not completely sold that 2guard is a good fit for him right out of the gate. Of course, there's a lot of speculation there. They could roll with Bradley or Smart/Hayward and bring Jackson off the bench his first year. Chicago is looking for young potential for Butler, and they could move #3 to Chicago. I HIGHLY doubt that Ainge will do anything like that, though.

        Glass half full. I hope Gordon stays in Utah, and I'm not just saying that as a Cavs fan.

        • I hope Butler and Rondo go, and that CHI drafts Guards. Both PG & SG

          • Knicks fire Jackson. Carmelo is still a loser.

            • Rockets and Clippers agree to a sign and trade for CP3. LAC gets Dekker, Beverly, Lou Williams, and a 1st. Not a bad haul.

                Houston Rockets 2017-18 Starting Lineup:

                PG - SG James Harden
                SG - PG Chris Paul
                SF - ...

                But seriously though, it's probably just going to be Harden and Paul taking turns running the offense, with one running off screens for a catch and shoot, or standing behind the 3pt line. It still fits D'Antoni's philosophy, but then again, any lineup does when you don't actually run plays.

                • Didn't DeAndre Jordan do the Mavs wrong by being locked in a room with CP3 and Blake Griffin. And now he's left with an empty cupboard. Karma.

                    I'd call that pretty good

                    • Windhorst says the Rockets are not done yet, and there are rumblings they are aggressively going after Paul George.

                        It won't matter, they still can't compete in the West

                          You mean with the Warriors? If they add Paul George they are right behind the Warriors in the West imo. Over San Antonio.

                          • Let's see what kind of contracts Curry, and Durant get. Iggy could be gone, Livingston could be gone.

                              Never discount Pop in SA, and Mike Dantoni sucks as a head coach because his teams don't play D. GS won without Durant before, and they can do it again

                                Golden St won without Durant because Kyrie and Love didn't play in that series. Besides, I wasn't talking abouy the Warriors losing Durant, I'm talking about Golden St losing key pieces of their bench.

                                I don't underestimate Pop, but his team isn't up to par, unless they get someone to help Kwai, Aldridge has been a huge disappointment.
