    Super-load management for Iguodala if it happens.
    Hell, between Iggy/Kawhi/LeBron/AD we're going to be the load management dynasty

    I feel like D'angelo could just be a trade chip for GSW when it boils down to it. Probably waiting for Beal to become available. They paid a lot though

    Damn @VRP Wes Matthews getting the vet min. So much for a $10M a year offer from LAL.

    Have to imagine Wes Matthews would've been an option for LAL at the vet minimum, but that rotation slot could be going to Danny Green, so potentially no playing time available for Matthews. I know Troy Daniels doesn't expect to play much, even with 65-75% of the team yet to be inked

    There are already rumors DLo will be dealt. DLo is a pick and roll guy on a team that does not do pick and rolls. I heard a stat that DLo by himself ran as many pick and roll plays as GS as a whole this past season.

    The old Warriors didn't do as much pick/roll, but they now have a lot of new things going on there. They have to be open minded until the opportunity presents itself. We'll see what Kerr truly has now.

    Reminds me of the Pat Patterson contract a few years back where no one understood why he got so low and it turned it he was cooked. Hope not I like him.

    I can't imagine D'Lo staying with the Warriors....he doesn't fit in well at all since he and Steph are so flawed defensively.

    And when Klay returns, he can't play the 3....that'd be one expensive ass bench player.

    Clippers added to the deal sending Butler to Miami....Clippers pick up Mo Harkless from it.

    @HPbasketball
    Clippers taking on salary is probably a sign that the Kawhi train is gone. I get it’s probably still possible but seems unlikely

    How they can still build it out around Kawhi/LeBron/AD

    Markieff Morris (vet min), Nerlens Noel (vet min), Johnathan Williams (2-way)
    Anthony Davis (max), Kyle Kuzma (rook)
    LeBron James (max), Andre Iguodala (vet min), Kyle Korver (vet min), Darius Miller (vet min)
    Kawhi Leonard (max), Danny Green (RMLE), Zach Norvell Jr. (2-way)
    Alex Caruso (vet min), Avery Bradley (vet min), Trey Burke (vet min), Talen Horton-Tucker (rook)

    Green @ the room exception is a dream, admittedly. But it does sound like he could be trying to stick with Kawhi, and LeBron and Green are close as well, so maybe

    33 year old, 10 year vet with a ton of mileage and bruises because of his style of play. Buyer beware for sure

    I love TJ McConnel, but maybe he should go to the Kings with the other Wildcats.
    Iggy's a Wildcat too, but he can come to the Lakers.

    If they're willing to do McConnell they may as well just wait it out for Rondo.
    Rondo given a ton of shit because of his jumpshot, but at least he's willing to take the shot. McConnell won't even take the shot.
    Between McConnell, and both Fultz's and Simmons' broken jumpshots, Philly's been winning games with their hands tied behind their back

    What am I saying? Rondo's jersey is going to Iggy. He's not coming back.

    Just heard that KL has made it final that the Clips are out.

    Down to Toronto and Lakers.

    Beyond being close to both Kawhi and LeBron ( and Kuz, apparently), Danny Green may just be looking for a home. A place where he can win a championship and always go back, perhaps work for the org in the future, etc. Lakers would be a great option..sign on the cheap, win titles with the group they're putting together and maybe be in that group of Mychal Thompson, Rick Fox, Fisher, etc. Making trips to San Antonio or Toronto in the future is probably more hassle than anything else. He might as well just fall into the Laker fam. They can reimburse him through one of LeBron's outlets, movie roles, whatever..just sign for this room exception and hit the 3 ball for us
