    Anytime you're moving a guaranteed Hall of Famer, I think you can use the term "Blockbuster", BUT I'm not sure I like the deal for the Suns. I really haven't paid a ton of attention to them other than their outstanding efforts in the bubble this past season. Chris Paul is well on the backside of his career, seemingly lotta little nagging injuries, expensive and known to be a bit of a pain to play alongside.

    Rubio is good and so is Oubre. I think Paul is on the decline, but that IMO.

    CP changed his workouts and diet and played 70 games last season, most in 3 years but the past injuries would for sure worry me. Also $41,358,814 and $44,211,146 is a real drag.

    Rubio has averaged about 62 games a season in 9 because he does get hurt.

    CP3 to Phoenix is extending his career another season or two.

    The Rockets offered Harden 50 million a season and he declined it. He wants to be Brooklyn Net. Unlike other pro sports, players have a lot of pull in the NBA. He ends up there somehow.

    Steve Nash will be the fall guy if it doesn't work.

    Allen is the best defender on that team. They need to cut Jordan (nobody will trade for him at this point) and either give his minutes back to Allen or go small ball with Durant at center. Harden or no harden, they will be an interesting team this year. But the east is on the rise (Boston, Miami, and Philly all still getting better) and who knows what happens with Giannis as the season progresses

    Bucks are going all in, blowing up a core that was good but not good enough for one more run with Giannis.

    I kinda like the Bogdanovic trade for Milwaukee.

    I think they way overpaid for Holiday. Bledsoe, George Hill & three #1s is a lot for a one time all star.

    Separately I really like the Covington for Ariza trade for Portland.

    The Celtics also have four draft picks in Wednesday's NBA draft, including three selections (Nos. 14, 26 and 30) in the first round.

    Celtics tried to get Holiday from Pelicans , offered Hayward , Pelicans chose the Bucks deal. Hayward and Kemba Walker might be traded by tomorrow's draft.
