    We have movement

    Adrian Wojnarowski@wojespn
    Atlanta has acquired New Orleans No. 4 pick in the draft for No. 8 and 17 and 35, league sources tell ESPN. Pelicans are sending Solomon Hill, No. 57 pick and a future second-round pick.

    Atlanta is pursuing Virginia's DeAndre Hunter with the No. 4 pick, league sources tell ESPN. Atlanta GM Travis Schlenk makes a big move in lottery second year in a row to get his man. Last year, it was Trae Young. This time, DeAndre Hunter

    Good move by ATL's GM. They don't need all those picks and young players. Young players get you fired. Get 2 or 3 core young guys to grow together and fill in with vets around them. Win some games. Griffin is going to have to shed some of those young guys as well at some point over the next couple years

    So the Pelicans have two pending trades heading into July - they could be folded into one with the addition of the Lakers players LA needs to get to another max. Up to the Pelicans to play ball there, and Hawks

    Win-win for both teams.

    Woj has pretty much spoiled the first 6 picks lol

    Suns dump Warren and trade back to #11 losing out on White/Garland?

    D'Lo to the Suns. They must know something.

    The New Orleans trade of no. 4 to Atlanta should clear the air that there was no confusion on the Lakers part when it came to the timing of the Anthony Davis trade to New Orleans, a source confirms to ESPN.

    Some analyst called DLo to the Suns like a week ago. It makes sense. His BFF Booker may be the only noteworthy star that wants to play with him. His dumb ass, out there getting detained at the airport, trying to hide weed in a container of ice tea. Still with the dumb shit

    I still can't help but think empty stats when I hear Booker's name.

    Yuck.

    Suns will be back in the top 5 next year.

    Lakers are keeping an eye on CP3 if he’ traded and gets bought out. If that happens, Lakers are interested in signing for vet minimum

    Kawhi Leonard is the main free agent target of the Los Angeles Lakers now. Kevin Durant’s injury obviously changed things. Source: “KD was always Lakers’ #1 choice even over Kawhi, because of the marketing, which Jeanie Buss was huge on. But obviously, Kawhi is now their man.”

    Why would a team trade for CP3 then buy him out?

    They could trade back a worse contract as a salary dump. Oh wait, there probably isn't a worse contract in the NBA.

    John Wall is the worst. If a team buys him out aren't they still on the hook for the whole thing?

    There are three years left on that awful contract. Its been only 1 year. Why would you buy out such a massive contract after just 1 year. Eat 3 years of that mess?
