    2020 Official Draft Thread

    Hi everyone, hope you and your beloved ones are all safe and well. Do you guys know until when does Fournier have to announce if he opts-in or not of the last year of his contract? I have been going through the profiles of some draft candidates and free agents that we could have a go this summer while trying to set up plan(s) to make us competitive both in the near and long terms but this "variable" keeps coming up quite frequently...
  2. What's the point of playing Fultz and MCW at the same time?!?!

    Didn't know that. Thanks. Sign me in. But we still need to move Fournier before this deadline.

    Why? Is there a rule that blocks it? Salary wise, a package of Vucevic+Fournier for Beal+Mahinmi would work. Adding our 1st rd 2020 pick might help motivating WAS. I think the biggest problem would be to convince Clifford...

    https://tradenba.com/trades/lUmep4l_Y Some picks should be included but I can’t cleared see which type and to whom... Probably we should get a 1st from MIN.

    I would do it, but unless we give them pick(s), I don't see DET doing it... Anyway, I do agree that we really NEED to do something. While we just won yesterday and are congratulating each other on how well we played as a team, I honestly think this "ternure" will only last until our next ugly performance, like last saturday @GSW. IMO, we need to capitalize now on the good numbers of Fournier this season and on the apparent interest of some teams in Augustine, so the first move I would do would be a 3-team trade with the Mavs and the Lakers: https://tradenba.com/trades/OYGyhh1Sm I can see both Mavs and Lakers being open to do this as they both want to "push" for a good playoffs run this year. After this I would be hesitant in staying put until end of season or go for a 2nd deal... If so, I would target another "top-tier" team that looks to be open to deal at the moment: the Nuggets. Seeing that they're over-crowded with guards and in need for help around Jokic, I would be very tempted to approach them for this deal: https://tradenba.com/trades/Yy7iYe7G7 Hell, I know moving AG is a polemic subject in here, but... YES, I would do this deal! Moreover, I would even give our 2020 1st round pick instead of a 2nd rounder to convince them to include MPJ in the deal.

    Replace Little by A.Simons and I am all in for it. Otherwise, I’ve read that KAT is unhappy in Minnesota and although I would love to see him pairing with Fultz and Isaac, I doubt that Orlando would be high on his wishlist in case he moves. In case this is true, I could see us getting somehow involved and getting back J.Brown and Hayward, that I think would mix well with our 2 players of the future, Fultz and Isaac. Note that Teague would be the filler to allow for the Jaylen’s “new contract”, starting next summer. https://tradenba.com/trades/fDBP3P_I4

    Agree in general but not with the part that SAC can’t pay him. Ariza and Bjelica contacts will basically come out of their payroll at the end of the year, so they will have margin and by the good impact Bogdanovic is making for them, I think it is very likely they will keep him. Looking at how we are at the moment, it looks like in the best scenario, we will just make into the playoffs but then, with no real perspective of good playoff run after that: playing MIL or BOS or PHI or TOR... and if we follow the same philosophy of last summer, I don’t see us improving considerably next year too... So I do think we should do something and try to improve our team. And by going to the market, we should focus on POR as trading partner... they are a “winning-now” team that is not delivering so they must be open for trade, and they have one player (Simons) that I really believe would fit perfectly with our future core (Fultz, Isaac... and probably Bamba, Okeke). I think Fournier+Aminu would satisfy their current needs and let him and Bazemore go. Note that Bazemore contract end next summer.

    "Multiple teams are reportedly interested in Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon should he become available on the trade market." https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2862909 How true is this? Which teams would these be?

    Yeah, I tend to agree on this but on the other side of the coin, in case his poor performances prevail, his market value would decrease even more and the number of possible trading partners could either decrease or be willing to offer less... or both... IMHO, assigning him to our G-League affiliate could be a good way to proceed at the moment - it would give him the opportunity to play more minutes and in a less demanding environment, helping him gain confident on his skills and finding a way to get back to his rhythm. In the meantime, Birch would have the chance to get in the rotation which I think he has deserved for some time now.

    It's subject to how much they would want him but I could see us interested in Dinwiddie or J.Harris. And yes, salary-wise, even a direct 1-for-1 trade would work.

    Absolutely! Maybe we could even add WAS to that list.

    Like it has been said before in this topic, everyone, apart from some key players, is available at the right price... In this case, I think apart from Harden and Westbrook(for now), anyone in HOU can be made available at some point. And by including Fournier in a the deal for House, I think they would at least give it some thought. Are you trying to say that Beal may...eventually... be available? :)

    Well, not willing to argue if this would be the "boost" that we most need at the moment, I think that if we would go down this way, there would be better alternatives than JJ out there at the moment. As a Magic fan, I totally understand the emotional affection with JJ but IMO, I would prefer to go for Danuel House for example, who I hoped we had chased during the this past summer free agency... Putting all the emotions aside, D.House has better shooting numbers, can play at both SG and SF, is younger, taller and his contract is way more team-friendly (around 3.7M/year until 2022 instead of JJ's 13M/year until 2021). Landing a deal with HOU and convince them on taking Fournier's contract could be more tricky, on the other end...
