BI Likely to be Traded (2 Viewers)

Not a fan either
We need a legit scorer and facilitator. Trae Young provides both.

Willie Green’s offense is terrible at times but he’s a good defensive coach. Pels defense is ranked top 10 back to back years but can’t do much with it because the Pels can’t score when needed.

I’m confident that Willie will get Trae to buy in so he can be at least serviceable on defense. We need a shooter who can take over games really bad. Trae and Zion would be fun to watch.
 

(Not aimed at you, SonOfNola - this is a shot at the Evan Siderys of this world - but big props to you for all the news you bring here and in the SSF so ...)

Lol!

"Growing belief"

"Potential Suitors"

Another X post that says absolutely nothing about nothing. Now someone will take this trash to be fact and other media idiots will regurgitate it to get their viewing shares off the topic.

Sidery’s info is coming from NBA insider Marc Stein’s paywall link in the tweet. Sidery is mostly an aggregate account resharing reporters’ reports from their tweets, paid articles or shows.

Doesn't matter. None of these guys know anything yet. These are just educated guesses that you or I could do. Nothing more than that. And we've seen plenty of "insiders" that really don't know jack. Example: CSP to Dallas annual crap from "insiders". Not much respect for that ilk from this corner.

I don't think Griff even knows what he is going to do - yet. Waaaay too early in the process. And Sidery/Stein/whoever prove it with the words they use (see the phrases I quoted above). They're both just media mooks trying to be the blind squirrel that finds a nut.

But it is a great example of the regurgitation I posted about. ;)

With ATL winning the lottery. I think ATL will not deal Trea for Ingram.

Which is funny after ATL leak a smear campaign on Young locker room issues. ATL just gonna be that messy neighbor that never breaks up.
 
People are talking how Spurs would assemble a package with their two top ten lottery picks for Young.

Which idk... They aren't that valuable and having that many lottery picks in a weak draft isn't a recipe for success.

I agree it’s early in the process before the offseason has fully started around the league. I don’t think they’re just guessing or don’t know anything though.

The wording is no different than Shams or Woj’s tweets. Their reports are sometimes about interest or suitors. The aggregate accounts reshare their tweets word for word. We’re use to seeing them report a concrete transaction more often.

If you want to believe, that's fine. I've seen much more wrong speculation, from supposed insiders, than right.

I pick a very few writers who have proven themselves (Underhill, Schefter, Shams) to be more credible than the rest of their ilk and follow even them with caution (even the good guys are often wrong).

The others I choose to use for entertainment, much like wrestling, nothing more.

We'll see about BI. A trade could happen, or not. I lean towards "or not", but that is just my thought process and I'm not expecting anyone to take my opinion for news.

So I'm not buying ANY speculation yet, and I'm certainly not expecting any meat on the bones of any rumor until at least the playoffs are finished.

YMMV. And that's OK.

Edit:
Oh, I meant what I said - I really appreciate the time and work you put into posting these comments. But I reserve the right to scoff at the original nimrods posting those things on X, Insta, or FB and even laugh at them when appropriate. :shrug:

If Alexander Sarr or Donovan Clingan is there at 3rd. We will make the move even if it a difficult situation to help Rockets.

You right. Evans is kind of a joke.
 
I still honestly rather prefer Kel'El Ware. Donovan is a superb prospect, but I don't buy his ceiling being super high..
