  1. Sorry guys I'd join but we are pretty busy at work and I won't have the time to really dedicate to this.
  2. So are they going to expand the rosters to 106 players for the 2 weeks that the non-starter & rotation guys have to play? Current 53 man rosters have everyone outside of back-up QBs typically seeing the field in some capacity each game outside of injury.

    He won't take a buyout, at least not anything less than probably 80 mil, which is a lot of money to have to eat even stretched. CP3 might go to a team that has some expiring/pseudo-expiring contracts that match up. Minnesota would be a good fit with them sending Teague & Dieng for CP3? Minnesota won't get a player as good as CP3, even an injury prone one on a maxed out contract any other way so could make sense for them. Miami could be an option too by offering up James Johnson & Goran Dragic so they get an upgrade in CP3 but at the expense of taking on money going forward. I don't want Cleveland to touch CP3. I've come around to taking on Adams & maybe someone like Schroeder for expirings, but that's about it.

    Getting multiple 1st round picks and swap options for the same length and contract size that they will probably move for shorter term deals? With Miami it seemed like OKC wanted a bunch of young players for Russ. Well they got their good haul for Russ through the trade to get CP3, so maybe with Miami, or even Minnesota, they'll just look to take on expiring or 2 year deals for CP3.

    With the hauls OKC has been getting for their players I'd probably pass on getting Adams. Unless we can get him for something like TT, JR, Delly, Zizic for Adams, Schroeder I'd pass.

    Tristan is a better defender on the perimeter, Adams is a better defender around the rim. That's really the biggest difference. Oh and lik bruceb said, no Kardashian connection.

    http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yxbtowdc This is closer to what it would take to be able to get SGA from the OKC in a trade. We eat the Johnson contract and send them JR for the cap savings. Even then what about Garland, Sexton, and KPJ? Realistically for us to get in for Adams the trade would likely look something like this: http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yy9f2ybz We end up eating James Johnson's contract while sending out TT and JR. This definitely puts us over the luxury cap though while letting OKC drop even further under it. Our roster would be: Garland/Clarkson/Delly Sexton/KPJ/Knight Cedi/Windler/Johnson Love/Nance Adams/Henson

    I'd rather go for a SF/PF hybrid considering our only PF is Love. Also his 3pt % isn't great.

    That's another Guard, we have enough guards. We need to get more forwards.
  10. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    No, absolutely not. Russ won't make the Cavs a title contender so no reason to make the move. Now I would be perfectly fine helping facilitate a 3 person trade where we send OKC a bunch of expirings and take some bad contracts from teh team getting Russ for a bunch of assets though.

    Or we could just see waht we have. Who knows we might have a "big 3" or really that might not even be needed any more with the movements around the league. We just need 2 All-Star caliber players and then a bunch of good/really good players around them like how it was before the Celtics started the arms race that's been the recent trend.
  12. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Tristan isn't on a max deal and wasn't when he was signed to his contract. Obviously it's more than he should be paid but considering htis offseason not far off from what he would've gotten in FA either. Tristan will likely head to a contender for a 2 year contract and some assets at the deadline, the same for Clarkson which will help in getting that "big 3" via the draft you are talking about. Also "trust the process" type situations where you bottom out and have the worse record doesn't work as well with new lotto odds.
  13. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    They are all expiring contracts and Clarkson and Tristan will likely fetch something at the deadline if we aren't competing and decide to move them for longer contracts and assets.
  14. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    The only "bad contract" on the Cavs right now is Kevin Love, if you want to consider it a bad contract. Everyone else is expiring, on a rookie contract, or Nance.

    I want AD to decide he wants to be a Clipper after this upcoming season...
