DAMMIT YOU USUAL POSSEE OF BITCHES, WHERE ARE YOU?? DID THIS PLACE DIE THAT BADLY??
Old timer here... i'm not sure how to take this one. Love JC and Nance, sad to see them go, but it was likely that they would be let go this summer anyway to make room for $$$ space.The question is does this make the team more attractive to free agents or not? Or is it a moot point since they are also on expiring contracts?

it will be interesting to see what they get from IT - he's been shit so far this season for the Cavs but could still be working off the rust and feeling his way back

also it will be fun to watch JC and jr get to play in the play-offs (might have to root for the Cavs)

Lakers intend to play IT "heavy minutes " once he gets to town. Think he'll thrive in their fast paced system. However no guarantee he starts.

meanwhile Cleveland just traded the rest of their team (including Dwyane Wade!) for Rodney Hood and George Hill and assorted picks

Wow Rachel said that IT3’s agent just texted her and said, “He’s not coming off the bench.” Ramona stood by her stance. Insists he likely will not start. Rachel said they’d rather have a buyout if he’s not starting.

Great trade for the Lakers. It is basically everything we ever wanted this trade deadline.

Im super sad to see Larry go, but realistically there isnt a spot for him here going forward.

Lol on IT and a buyout. Who does this guy thinks he is? Lakers have very little incentive to buy him out.

Good trade. We get two max slots this summer to go after Lebron and PG. If neither comes, we can move the cap space over to 2019 when Klay, Kawhi and Butler become available. We also get a first rounder for our trouble which is currently 24th and top 3 protected, so barring the Cavs missing the playoffs and a lottery miracle, we’re keeping that pick. Lakers have been KILLING the draft as of late. We also remain competitive this year too with IT and Frye. We’ll lose a little on defense but IT and Frye vastly improve our shooting.

I still ...mostly...dont want Lebron.

I wonder if he still wants to do only 1-2yr deals? If so I'm more interested but still concerned about the outside noise that surrounds him fucking up team chemistry. Signing him to a 4-5yr deal would be a bad move

I want PG...mostly...Watching Kobe play for 20 years makes you less excited. PG is obviously not a generational talent, nor is he a "superstar" IMO. He is a great great great player in his prime years.

I can be patient...PG this year and Klay or Kawhi next trade deadline or next years offseason
