    Fultz - Simmons - Embiid is a scary big 3 in a couple of years if they can stay healthy and reach their potential.

    Then you've also got some really solid pieces in there like Robert Covington, who is a stud, and Dario Saric, Jahlil Okafor, Richaun Holmes, and TJ McConnell, along with a few others. That team has a really bright future.

    The Los Angeles Lakers have traded D'Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets for Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in the draft Thursday.

    As a Lakers fan, I don't like this move. As much as I like getting rid of Mozgov, Russell is gonna be an All Star.

    That was a big mistake by the Lakers, they'll regret that in a couple years.

    A few hours later, I'm even more upset about that move to be honest.

    We gave away D'Lo for a year of Brook and a late first. Unless Brook resigns for below the max, so they can still go after a max player, this move makes no sense.

    Hornets traded Marco Belineli for Dwight Howard. That's signature Charlotte, trade away your still current talent for has-beens.

    They also get rid of Plumlee though, which is a plus.

    Dwight isn't the worst player you could get, he's still a solid Center, just not at his price. At least it's only for the next two seasons though.

    I wouldn't be too concerned, only because the Nets haven't won a trade since they moved to Brooklyn.

    Salary dump + clearing room for Lonzo. No doubt now who the PG of the future is, and Lopez' contract expires after next season. That kind of cap space is exactly what the Lakers will need then, not two more years of Mosgov's salary.

    What will become of Russell? Who knows. Maybe Brooklyn will eventually have a halfway decent player. Gotta give up something to get something. What the Lakers got in the form of a Lonzo without awkwardness, a good player in Lopez who becomes cap space next year, and a pick that became two picks from a deep draft IMO has much more upside than what they gave.

    Yeah, I understand the trade, and it's not a bad trade at all by any means. It's probably just my love for D'Lo that's making me dislike the trade more than I should, lol.

    As a huge fan of D'Angelo Russell, I really hate the trade the Lakers made. I'm not exactly sure why, but I don't understand all the hype about Lonzo Ball.

    There's a local element since Ball played for UCLA, and another former UCLA PG just won league MVP.

    Didn't see that coming! I'm staying up intentionally to see what happens when free agency starts at midnight. I'm really hoping the Charlotte Hornets can convince some of these free agents to come to the east since it will be a cakewalk to the Eastern Conference Finals considering how loaded the west is.

    That was definitely a surprise. Not what I was expecting at all.

    Thomas is still injured. Just yesterday there was an article out of CSN New England that Thomas would have another test on his hip in early September and then a timeline for his return would be created.

    So let's not overshoot the runway here. If Thomas' injury proves to be a problem, this may not actually happen.
