    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    This was posted elsewhere but more on topic here. https://fadeawayworld.net/2019/05/17/nba-rumors-bulls-interested-in-trading-no-7-pick-for-lonzo-ball/ According to Joe Cowley of The Chicago Sun-Time, the Bulls would be interested in trading for Lonzo Ball, giving their No. 7 pick in exchange. It was reported by Cowley earlier this week that, if Chicago didn’t finish with a top-two pick in the NBA Draft Lottery, they would try to hand their first-round choice to the Lakers in exchange for Ball. https://www.lakersnation.com/nba-trade-rumors-lakers-could-be-interested-in-kyle-lowry-if-raptors-do-not-re-sign-kawhi-leonard/2019/05/18/ There's also interest in point guard Kyle Lowry, who could be available if the Raptors lose Kawhi Leonard in free agency. Because of Lowry's age (33) and contract ($33 million for next season), the Lakers could bring him in for a relatively limited outgoing package. Easy solution to all our problems. Trade Mike to Lakers for Ball then trade Ball to CHI for #7.

    Dame never had SuperStar label attached to him. So him crapping the bed goes under the radar. Being an MVP and dating Kardashians pretty much ensures you stay under the microscope. Its just like TOR fans and media just now seeing Gasol is more Alfred The Butler than Robin. Small market is the best thing for some of these guys.

    So sad that CJ and Dame game has abandoned them against GSW. If either one of them provided their normal production- series would already be tied. they look like playoff James Harden out here!

    The Freaky Five...a more realistic target in Conley draft trade ...

    I will never understand why you want to play SloMo at the 2. He doesn't have the mobility to do that at all.

    Im with KBM Reddish will be a star and we need him badly...

    Conley to Lakers for Ball and Ball to Bulls for #7. #7 go get Cam Reddish. Now with Conley + Lebron it's possible to attract another guy in Free Agency.
  6. May need to ban him ala Tyreke from posting threads for a while! Ooops is it too soon??

    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    For the 4th pick i'd take a chance on Ingram or Ball and flip Ball to the Suns for whatever. That capspace would be super valuable. I am sure he is just saying that to entice Pelicans. But I have a hard time thinking LeBron would set his sights so low as Conley before the draft. Even tho they have to know NOP aint sending them AD.

    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    Yea i see him as mostly being a shooting specialist because of that. Lack of wingspan and elite athleticism gonna make it hard for him to become a starter in today's NBA.

    Could Ja possibly be the best player in the draft?

    At the end of the day he is the better fit with Jaren longterm. Just draft him already.

    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    For the #13 pick. My proposal also flips Dragic to the Suns for further compensation. Ryan Anderson is the price of business. My preference is of course Chicago but that may be too much wishful thinking.

    While we dreaming may as well ask for Kawhi or Durant. ūüėā But for real i can see LAL failing on AD and throwing everything they have at WAS for Beal. He fits with Lebron realy well.

    I'd do Mike/Kyle for #13 Dragic/Ryan Anderson and send Dragic to PHO or CHI for more compensation.

    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    Well according to Mike Wallace the grizz do plan on getting an additional pick in this years draft. If that is true then I am looking real hard at the teams that have already declared they are willing to part with their pick (Det, Chi, Uta). I am also sitting Conley, Avery, Parsons, and Dillon bags by the door. Those are the most likely suspects for the Grizz to try to move. We are also in a funky financial situation so i'd like at the teams that can offer some cap relief as well. Plan should be to have lots of caproom by 2021. So we don't want bad players on deals that run past that. Chicago deal is the most ideal but if Paxson isn't dumb enough to do it (jury still out) then I do look at MIA and DET. Still some decent prospects can fall into there ranges (Nassir, Alexander, Langford, Herro). I care more about the pick and capspace than the returned players. Unless i think the player can hurt our rebuild chemistry.

    It Sounds like i'm trading with Chicago or Phoenix instead.

    Summer Plans

    Sorry i shoulda clarified. Ja Jaren and everyone else need to keep a bag handy. He thinks Bruno, Jevon and Delon could be back. He thinks people overhyped Dillon and that DB isn't safe because he isn't this regimes pick. Same with Kyle. Personally i wouldn't count on Jonas coming back either and if he does its prob on the option.

    Summer Plans

    Mike Wallace from Grind City Media on Chris Vernon show today believes Conley will be traded Avery won't be back Nobody on current roster is safe Jonas wife isnt' a fan of Memphis so its very possible he won't be back longterm. Coaching search will be geared towards someone who has a proven track record of developing young players At very least he thinks Grizz will be tryin to get another pick in this draft. Via trade or purchase
  17. I hear u, but frankly i don't think Conley feels especially loyal to this particular FO that tried to trade him. I am sure he and has agent/dad feel its in his best interest to move on. Mike is no dummy and his mentioning he isn't interested in a rebuild and wants to go pursue a championship everytime a mic is in his face is calculated. I applaud him for standing up for himself. Id be the same way if my bosses tried to trade me unsuccessfully. I wouldn't be happy to come back. Dr J was a champion and decorated player with nothing left to prove. Mike never made an AllStar team. Apples to Oranges.

    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    Yep I want no parts of Hayward. I'd rather take a chance on Wiggins than him. Now that i don't really care about us conveying that pick i am not that interested in BOS. I am with ODK about Ingram and Lakers players. Sadly i prefer Josh Hart to both Lonzo and Ingram. No need for Lonzo now that we have Ja and Ingram has too many red flags. I am more interested in the lottery picks. Guys that are good with coming to our current situation are dudes who need opportunity (delon types) and past prime vets (CJ Miles) and guys looking to rehab image. Big contract guys in the middle of primes aint gonna be cool with playing second fiddle to some rookie. That's why i like Chicago deal getting a rookie and a humbled lottery pick and a overpaid MLE guy shouldn't hurt chemistry.
  19. Highlighting key phrase there. What guy in his prime wants to help his replacement? That question isn't about Jevon but Ja.

    Great time to be a fan

    Cosign! I am thanking the BasketBall Gods for this bounty of debates and hot takes!

    When Should Conley be traded??

    Yep keep Chicago on hotline. If a guy we like falls to 7 make the move. Getting a lottery pick a 25yr old former lottery pick and bad contract is more than anyone thought was possible this past deadline. While moving Mike to the East too. Do that or Do yall really think NK giving us RJ lol

    Tyreke Kicked out of League for Violating Drug Policy

    Sad i hope he gets the help he needs. But it does make other murmurs ive heard about him make more sense. I wonder if its pain pills that would explain things too

    Just gonna combine all these together.
  24. Gotta be that 7th pick. I imagine they had a fav player they were evaluating for the 8th pick. They may still be interested in obtaining him. Conley goes to a big market in the East so he gets a great chance to go to AllStar game. Chicago is also obviously in win-now mode.
  25. On this note - i would bet on CHI taking the lead in Conley sweepstakes. Them being willing to include their lottery pick and being in the East. Has to make them the frontrunners.
