    Quick catch up...

    -DJ's deal with the Clippers is for four years, $88M with the 4th year a player option.

    -Tim Duncan re-signed with the Spurs for two years, $10-plusM.

    -Spurs also flipped a future 2nd round pick to Sacramento for Ray Mccallum.

    -Enes Kanter is in Portland signing a four year, $70M offer sheet with a trade kicker. No word on whether or not OKC will match.

    -Lou Williams signed a three year, $21M deal with the Lakers.

    -Luis Scola signed a one year, $3M deal and Cory Joseph signed a four year, $20M deal, both with Toronto.

    -Gerald Green is joining the Heat on a one year deal.

    -Jeremy Lin signed with Charlotte.

    -With DJ flip flopping, Dallas may enter tank mode this year.

    -Kings are showing interest in Josh Smith with Rondo now on the team (teammates at Oak Hill Academy).

    Report out of Philly is that Joel Embiid will miss the entire 2015-2016 season with his foot again.

    Tough break for the kid. Didn't even get to play his first two seasons. That's gotta weigh on you mentally.

    Guess the Jahlil Okafor pick ain't looking that bad, eh?

    OKC matched Portland's four year, $70M offer sheet for Enes Kanter.

    Kanter
    Ibaka
    Durant
    Waiters
    Westbrook

    But in two years, OKC could lose Russ & KD and be led by Kanter & Waiters for around $150M for the succeeding 4 years.

    Definitely. I think the Suns find their way into the playoffs.

    The Jazz will be up there, too.

    And I think the Lakers will be decent. Everyone's crapping on Hibbert, but I'm not writing off Roy. Dude can ball on defense.

    Their bench is still a work, but Randle & Russell are going to a good injection of youth.

    The race will be wide. And again, health will dictate a lot of it.

    The Kings signed Seth Curry to a 2yr/$2 mil contract. Good for him...he must be pretty stoked to be in the NBA. Nice move by the Kings. Not sure what we didn't attempt to sign him? Maybe he doesn't want to play so close to his brothers shadow?

    Don't think we need him in all honesty.

    I think it could be more about playing time. That could be why most players are passing us over.

    Yeah, he was close to signing with NOLA but then Sacramento swooped him and offered a few more extra six-figures and more PT.

    Can't wait to see how much his hard work will translate on court. His work ethic to improve is identical to Steph's. He's not so one-dimensional, anymore.

    Yeah I'm rooting for that guy to do well. I mean he's Steph's bro man. Haha

    He has a thicker build too. More like Kyrie.

    Tristan Thompson rejected $80M because his peers received more.

    Yes, TRISTAN FLIPPING THOMPSON REJECTED FUCKING EIGHTY MILLION.

    Meanwhile, Dray's happy with $82M before Cali taxes, LMA has $80M, Leonard $80M, etc...

    Dude is risking it big. We've seen this story before. Young player receives big money, turns it down hoping for more, has rough regular season/injury and loses out on that opportunity.

    TT is being hella dumb.... (i know the irony of what I typed)....

    Seriously though, he's got a good thing going in Cleveland and is clearly trying to mess it up for himself.....

    Greed... is a biyatch..
