    Lakers are trading Tim Mozgov and D'Angelo Russell to Nets for Brook Lopez and 27th pick Thursday, sources say.

    Interesting trade.... Lakers probably taking Lonzo Ball? Lopez is a solid offensive Center.

    Wow, solid trade on paper for the Lakers.

    Allows them to draft Lonzo Ball and play him at PG while unloading Mozgov's bloated contract for an expiring one in Brook Lopez's (and knowing what they're getting in Brook)... setting them up for a run in free agency at Paul George or LeBron in 2018.

    Knicks are shopping Porzingis.

    Bulls are eyeing Josh Jackson. The Celtics have the 3rd pick. If they really want Jimmy Butler, drafting Jackson may be their move.

    I think the Celtics are eyeing Tatum. They need offensive punch and Tatum is going to be a great scorer in this league.

    Former Warriors assistant GM Travis Schlenk's first decision as Hawks GM is trading Dwight Howard and the 31st pick to the Hornets for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and the 41st pick. Atlanta is going into rebuilding and opening up a whole ton of cap flexibility.

    That is a genus move...Howard will never help a team get past the first or second round of the playoffs.

    Ok. Lots of early movement. I think we will see a crazy off season. What with the luxury cap expansion and everyone trying to scramble to respond to a new Warriors world

    Good deal for both LAL and Brooklyn, great deal for Atlanta, not sure what Charlotte is doing...

    Yeah, that pretty much sums it all up... ;)

    All the speculation is driving me nuts. Will KD only sign a one year deal? Then join forces with Ledouchbag at the Lakers? Arrrrgggggghhhhh F NOoooo!!!

    That would be the shittiest thing ever! I can't imagine that happening (the part about KD going to the Lakers... but he will probably sign a deal that he can opt out of after 1 year) but things change so quickly in the NBA. Until we lock him up long term I will be nervous. Its one thing to talk about staying together... taking less money, etc... a whole other thing to actually do it.

    Hell will freeze over before Lebron and KD play together for the Lakers... :cool:

    But yeah, seems like he's leaning towards another 1+1 deal.

    I sure hope that is the case. He sure hugged a lot of Cavs before celebrating with his team mates... lol

    From my understanding, KD is signing a one year deal, so the Dubs can keep Iggy and or Livingston. Isn't that the deal? I am sure that Durant would rather sign a max deal with the Warriors if they weren't so cap strapped with Curry also being an UFA.

    Crazy, I was just hearing about a package they were putting together for Paul George.

    Wow, good for them. Butler is the perfect infusion of veteran leadership they need.

    And the Bulls also send the 16th pick to Minny.

    Let's make it quick, this is a Hershel Walker kind of deal. Everybody on the Bulls should be fired, from the owner to the last ticket seller. Gar Forman should be banned from ever entering the state of Illinois again.

    Guess that's all I have to say about Chicago. Let's say hi to "Sacramento East".

    As for Minny... they're not only making the playoffs, they're going to be a really tough team to beat. Great, great deal for them.

    The Warriors free agents aside, where do you see the rest ending up? Here's a few:

    Gordon Hayward
    Blake Griffin
    Chris Paul
    Kyle Lowry
    Paul Millsap
    Kris Holiday
    Danilo Gallinari
    Serge Ibaka

    If there's anyone else you wanted to predict, the link is above.
