Article explaining cap situation. Has to do with timing and whether AD waves free money.
https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/l...y-davis-trade/

Kemba is not anywhere near the player of Kawhi. Kawhi right now is arguably the best player in the league. The rumors of Kawhi going to Lakers sound a bit ridiculous, but he is a strange character who maybe likes throwing multi millions away.

Lakers need to be careful. If they decide to max out their remaining cap for a big name, they will be one injury away from disaster with an awful bench.

Kawhi has already stated he's not interested in building a "super team." I guarantee the "Kawhi to the Lakers" is BS being leaked by the Lakers themselves.

There are 3 possible outcomes in my mind:
1. Kawhi goes to the Clippers for 4/$140
2. Kawhi signs a 5/$190 with Toronto

But what I think is the most likely?

3. Kawhi opts out, signs 1yr deal with Toronto, then next year he's at 10 years in the league and can get a substantially larger Max contract. This gives him another year with the core guys at Toronto to repeat. And then the year after he can still go anywhere he wants or stay.

No interest in the draft, or the NBA. Maybe because I’m a Knicks fan.

No doubt. I didn't expect my boy PG to win either since he dropped toward the end of the season with his injuries, but he still put up great numbers.

I really like the young combo of Giannis and Spicy P.

But the, "Give the ball to Giannis and dunk, or kick out if they double team," offense really needs tweaked. They need more off-the-ball movement.

Or Giannis could just develop a jump shot outside of 8-10 feet

Even then, it would still just be drive to the paint and settle for short jumper instead of trying to get to the rim.

That was the thing that stood out most to me during the playoffs. Giannis drives and you literally have 4 guys just standing there waiting to see if they will get passed to.

They need run actual plays and set down screens, where maybe the still let Giannis drive, but the screen sets up their shooters for more open looks or more opportunities to move the ball to beat the defense.

Even so...for Ujiri to end up 4th in voting? Don't agree with that at all.

We've (Rockets) crashed and burned again this free agency period

Missed out on a lot of good people for various reasons. The league seems a lot more even now though, should make for a little more interesting season/playoffs.

Just like OKC. It's hard to do anything when you're loaded down with bad contracts.

A lot of the "speculation" around Houston going after Jimmy Butler and stuff like that was completely bogus from the beginning. Although I am surprised to see him go to Miami.
