How do you move an expiring productive Howard for Mozgov,a bum with another year??

Does he think he's going to strike gold with 2 picks in the 40's???

Dam, what was Perry doing,unless he is on full tank mode


Some things to consider...

1. Dwight Howard was apparently hated in the Hornets locker room.

2. The Hornets new GM, Mitch Kupchak, was burned by Howard when he left the Lakers for the Rockets.

3. Mitch Kupchak signed Mozgov to that terrible deal while he was with the Lakers, so perhaps he sees something in Mozgov that everyone else doesn't see? Unless Mozgov has something on Mitch... :hmm:

4. This move puts the Hornets under the luxury tax, had they kept Howard they would have been paying the tax without other moves being made.

5. They are likely to head towards a full rebuild and will be in asset acquisition mode. Howard's value in today's NBA is limited considering the move away from traditional big men, so a couple of second rounders to take on a bad contract is not exactly bad business since they will be potentially tanking the next couple or so seasons and Mozgov won't hurt their chances.

Personally I think the Nets got the better end of this deal because they get to clear cap space for max contracts next year, but this could have a negative effect on Jarrett Allen. He was a first round pick for the Nets last year and showed promise as a rookie. He could find himself coming off the bench next season instead of starting now Howard is on their roster, and potentially his minute count isn't going to grow substantially unless they limit Howard.

Good point on Jarrett Allen. If I were the Nets I wouldn't want Howard anywhere near that kid. Howard is one of the sulkiest, bitchiest players I've ever seen come through the NBA.

I'd buy him out if I were NJ, I mean Brooklyn.

Somewhere, Dwight Howard is assuring the closest person standing next to him that he’s gonna milk this game for all it’s worth, and I’m not mad at him.

I'm not mad at him either, but I'm certainly disappointed in him.

It seems like this is just a good old fashioned basketball trade where teams exchange players and it's not about the salary cap. It's kind of surprising that Gortat is the guy that Washington shipped out. I can only imagine the amount of times Washington tried to steer the Clips to Ian Mahimi.

It looks like the Clips are expecting Jordan to opt out and they won't sign a center with their cap space. It seems likely that he'll sign with Dallas taking one more team looking for a center off the market.

The Philadelphia 76ers are in close discussions on deal to acquire Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler, league sources tell Yahoo.
For Denver, this moves Chandler's $12.8M expiring contract, clearing room to sign Will Barton to his extension. Denver likely sending a future second-round pick. https://t.co/OQzAwbUWj6

Spurs are smoking crack.

According to NBA salary cap guru Larry Coon, the Spurs are still asking a king’s ransom for Leonard. Coon says San Antonio’s asking price of LA is Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart, two first round picks, and two draft pick swaps. https://nba.nbcsports.com/2018/07/03/ru ... ssion=true


And Magic Johnson would be crazy to agree to this deal. Why would anyone in their right mind give away present and further assets for a player who’s leaving San Antonio, anyway?

Hilarious.

Solid move for Orlando to unload Biyombo. Sucks they never used him correctly in the offense or rotation. He deserves better.

Denver has agreed to send Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur, a 2019 protected first-round pick and a future second round pick to Nets for Isaiah Whitehead, league sources tell ESPN. Salary dump for Denver.

That’s a lot of action going to NJ and not much going the other way. Is that the full trade?

Jesus. A 1st round pick just to unload those guys? Arthur is actually a solid player as well. Doesn't Faried expire this season?

I guess all to resign Barton and sign Thomas. And I guess they're stacked at the 4 and 5 positions.

I have PTSD when I see anyone deal a 1st round pick.
