Lakers get Beverley which I think is a decent move if they make some more moves. He won’t have to have main ball-handling responsibilities and can do dirty work and hit the 3.
If they can pull off the Westbrook + FRP(s) for Hield and Turner then they are in a decent spot but still reliant on health of AD.
Getting a shooter in Hield helps and Turner can play the 5 to help Davis, especially in regular season.
That’s pretty good overall and health permitting. That lineup has enough about it in terms of shooting and D to be a decent threat. Again, health permitting.
Beverly and Lebron, clash of character
Disappointing for Chet and OKC
Wow, wonder how much they gave up
3 unprotected 1sts, 2 pick swaps and Markaanen, Sexton and Agbajii
You reckon? They should be a playoff team for the next little while at least. Not exactly sure when the picks fall.
Markanen isn’t a huge loss, Sexton was always leaving anyway as Cavs lowballed him and Agbaji was promising but still a mid first rounder essentially.
It keeps them relevant but Donovan will not lead them anywhere
It also includes a sign and trade for Sexton who is getting 4 years 72 million.
They needed a go-to scorer and Mitchell is still very young with quite a lot of playoff experience. Cavs will always find it tough to win tbh but don’t know that this is a fleecing as such
finally, a trade/news not about the Lakers
Ime Udoka is a sick dude, imagine cheating on Nia Long!?
I want a top 2 pick, either he or Scoot.
Spurs and Utah launching operation tanking early this season I think.
need a lengthy suspension and hefty fines…
