    OKC is going nuts. I can’t keep track of all their trades. lol

    Per Woj
    New Orleans and Milwaukee are expanding the original Jrue Holiday trade to include more teams and players, including the routing of Steven Adams to the Pelicans, sources tell ESPN. Talks are moving toward a possible four-team trade.​

    Worth it??? Depends on how desperate a team is.

    Definitely a lot of money being thrown around. But that happens every year in every sport...

    Smaller markets have always had to overpay for free agents to get them to come there. Good for him

    So who has the early lead as winners in FA?
    Kept seeing Lakers, Lakers but that could just be L.A. + champs hype.
    Not enough of an NBA fan to tell for myself.

    You’re right about smaller markets. And larger markets over pay because they can.
    Revenue sharing and salary caps have made it much more competitive.

    Technically, we won’t know until after the he’s fulfilled the contract ..“Worth it”.

    I think its more than just hype. The lakers are having a great off-season. The easy break down is they are defending champs and made trades/signings this past week that make them significantly better at two (and arguably three) positions. Davis will re-up with them next week or thereabouts. What's even better for the Lakers is that their primary competition in the western conference got appreciably worse in the past week (Clips and Nugs both lost key players). Philly and Dallas are probably the two teams that have done as well as the Lakers this week, but Philly is in the east and Dallas still isn't at the Lakers level and there remain questions about the Porzingis injury.
