2021 Trade Deadline Thread

Recommended Posts

Reports saying Boston was very hot after Vooch and AG. Honestly, I'm so glad we traded for the Bulls' picks, as they are the diamonds in the deal. I did want Nesmith over Hampton in an AG trade, so RJ's going to have to show we made the right decision there.

True. But I was here for the entire Hennigan era. There are tougher things than losing in sports

To clarify, I understand that there might be pain at the end of this rebuild, but not trying to make moves would have been a million times worse as a fan.

I have no doubt you’ll still be here after all the time you’ve been part of this forum.  There aren’t that many of us “die-hards”.  Whether you’ll still be excited by the new start at that point is what I’m wondering.  Hopefully it will all work out well.

  Ahh, but a year from now we'll all be wondering which crappy player are we going to take on with that fat TPE so two other teams can make a trade and send us 2 second round picks.

/sarcasm.

I think we are just going to have to get a little lucky. One or two of these guys will have to break out and maybe in 2022 or 2023 we throw some money at somebody. I still don't think we get the next disgruntled star, but stranger things have happened. We aren't beating teams like OKC if we dangle assets for the next guy(Bradley Beal). However, we might get one if the next year one is available we have 40 million in cap space. Picture this, we get Cade and Isaac gets back to DPOY form and we have money. Could be our time to get the next Rashard Lewis. Maybe, some other team get's Beal and the Wolves utterly fail next year?  Trade for KAT in 2022? So many possibilities if we can just show some progress.

bang on mate. Im so excited for whats next, looking forward to the draft and the youngsters develop. If we kept that status quo then that would of just about seen me out. I have hated the last few years to be honest. Full of hope and optimism going foward.

This.


WCJ and Bamba are going into a battle to earn their next contract I hope. Both have doubts about motor and willingness. As I imagine we arent' going to sign both to big extensions, I hope there will be competition and pushing each other. If we're not going to play 40 minutes of Birch at least... :P (and I actually love Khem!)

the TPE could easily going unused. Would be strange to make deals to shred salaries, and then add more with an exception...

  I wish we had done this last year. I don't like the idea of ending the year with Bamba,Birch and WCJ on the team. It shows me they still don't get it. The TPE lasts one full year. Instead of thinking of it as a way to add a player, think of it as a way to add an asset. If we keep our cap space open which we should instead of throwing money at a mediocre player. Next year two teams can make a trade and we use the TPE to absorb an unwanted player on the last year of his contract. We get a pick.

Right. I wrote a follow up because my words could’ve read as confrontational. I apologize 

I understand that you weren’t questioning my fandom

I suppose the reason the Magic traded Vuc is to develop Bamba. But how long do we have to wait for this experiment to turn Bamba into a dominant to serviceable center?

I have to admit that I didn't watch the game from beginning to end. But  Bamba's movements seems like he is confused about what he is suppose to do or where he is suppose to be on offense. It was like he was moving in slow motion.  I was pulling for him but my body went into 'strain mode' while watching him. 

Last night he got lucky on a couple of shots, but he was chucking several 3's and missing. When he made a shot, he celebrated  with a look on his face like, "There, I made one!"

I think I’m surprised Bamba is not picking up the game more quickly. While work ethic was questioned in the beginning, his intelligence was not as he was known to love to read and have intelligent discussion. So I would assume someone with physical gifts and a sharp mind would turn into a solid role player at least if the killer instinct was not there. 

So I guess I’m confused as to why Bamba hasn’t matured more in his understanding of positioning and his role.

When do teams start playing their newly acquired players? Fournier is on the injury list for the Celtics game tonight.

Gordon and Clark are on the injury list for the Nuggets' game tomorrow night.

I just want to watch our former players on their new team. For those who think I have a motive--no, I do not.

I hope they make major contributions on their new team. I wish them nothing but the best unless when their team play against the Magic. 

Edit: Are these players actually injured or are the teams they are playing for giving them time to become acclimated with a new style of play or game plan?
