    Man - a lot needs to happen in the next few weeks. Off the top of my head: (1) set the salary cap, (2) the draft, (3) free agency & (4) training camp.

    Nov 18 is the draft and training camp from what I hear is Dec 1st. I wonder about pre season games?

    I doubt there are much if any pre-season games. They have been cutting back on those in recent years anyway

    Rushing the new season purely a money play.

    I may be in the minority, but I really got back into basketball during the shutdown. Even when other sports returned, I found myself intensely following the playoffs. Did anyone else experience this with basketball or other sports?

    I was already a long time basketball fanatic, but I did enjoy the bubble quite a bit. There were a lot of great moments and games

    I'm excited to see if the Warriors can "put the band back together"! It'll be interesting to see what Coach Kerr can get out of Andrew Wiggins, with Klay and Steph back on the floor.

    Tommy Heinsohn has died at the age of 86.

    Laker rumor, looking at Serge Ibaka

    Thanks for the reminder... totally slipped my mind! I didn’t include Draymond cause he played most of last year.

    Suns may be interested in Chris Paul.

    Sources: Los Angeles Lakers intend to acquire Dennis Schroder from Oklahoma City Thunder for Green and their 28th pick in the draft.

    James Harden to Brooklyn could be interesting.

    I read that too, but I am not sure it actually happens. The Nets would probably have to give up LaVert, Dinwiddie, Allen and draft picks. All three of those guys loathe Irving and Jordan and would probably like to go elsewhere, but it would leave the team with zero depth
