    ESPN Sources: 4-team trade agreement:
    Houston: Robert Covington;
    Atlanta: Clint Capela and Nene;
    Minnesota: Malik Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez, Evan Turner, ATL 1st round pick via Nets;
    Denver: Gerald Green, Houston FRP.




    Jordan Bell also going to Houston. They're leaning into small-ball big time.

    Minnesota's Noah Vonleh goes to the Nuggets, per source.







    Don't like this. Vonleh can do some things

    Going to the Heat. Will also sign a 2 year extension for $30M or so. At least the Clips don't get him.

    Nice addition for Miami. Don't think it gets them past Giannis because Iggy can't do anything with him, but still a nice addition

    I'd rather have Winslow than Iguodala.

    I don't think Iguodala has much juice left

    2 years 30 million seems insane for Iggy right now

    Having a career year on a bad team. Generally, been trash in the past defensively, but has been better this year.

    They pretty much traded defense for offensive punch and some toughness. They probably feel pretty good about their chances of punking the Lakers now, at the very least

    Hope they play the Rockets. Kinda weird how the Rockets are gearing up to matchup as well as they possibly can with the Clippers while matching up terribly with the Lakers.

    Should go ahead and waive Troy Daniels, sign Darren Collison and call the deadline a wrap.

    Still have Cousins potentially coming off the shelf in late March/early April - about as high a ceiling as anybody that's been moved thus far. See what sort of impact Phil Handy's magic touch can have with Cousins. Don't blame the Clips for trying to get bigger/tougher when LAL already has such a size advantage - and then is looking at the real possibility of getting even bigger if/when Cousins returns

    Would be surprised if the Rockets were able to do a damn thing. Game slows down in the playoffs and they're going in the opposite direction - yet again.

    They stay where they are in the standings and Utah is gonna be immediate trouble

    Russell finally lands in Minnesota with his BFF Towns. Now, they can lose together.


    Wiggins on the Warriors is more interesting

    Worst rated defensive player.............ever. Warriors have a lot of work on their hands.

    Butler was 100% right about the Wolves tho.....losing culture out there with soft guys that refuse to play defense.

    Now, they're going down swinging - basically what this Russell trade says. They have to know at this point, that Towns isn't the guy..and then they throw another high priced log that isn't the guy on the fire just to try and keep the 1st guy happy and in town. Smh

    Is it better than the trade demand that was soon to come from Towns? Debatable.

    That's why Butler wanted to whoop his ass....Towns refuses to play a lick of defense. He is the king of empty stats....he may score you 30 points, but he's giving up 40.
