    Not that I doubted you at the time, but it looks like you were/are correct about Oladipo now being a brand and receiving questionable advice from his entourage. Even so, this franchise couldn't risk losing him for nothing at the end of this season.

    Or they could conceivably deal him at the deadline for additional assets. That said, I believe that `Dipo will fit in really well and likely be re-signed.

    Houston is a winner - I'm not saying THE winner - in this deal. The drama is over.

    One other thought about the Nets roster that should be noted. Should Nicolas Claxton develop as expected, that will soften the blow from losing Allen.

    Pacers did great in this deal.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    I'm no longer going to post games to be canceled. There are just too many.

    Guess Simmons isn't suspended now that Harden was traded. Sixers getting healthier and should have more players available than the Heat will have in their game on Thursday.

    Porzingas finally makes his debut tonight.

    Those picks and pick swaps could be huge in 2025-27.

    Durant should demand a trade to HOU.

    ...for Wall.

    He should have stayed in OAK.

    Simmons played just last night. Not sure where the idea is coming from that he's "suspended". He sat out before that due to a sore knee.

    Is he trade eligible again before the deadline? I thought there was a limit on how quickly you can flip a guy after a trade, though maybe that's just on guys who've signed FA deals.

    I suspect Durant's going to feel like Moe trying to keep Larry and Curly in line.

    No. Ben Simmons is not now, nor has he been, suspended.

    The talking heads on various networks /outlets have intimated that moving Oladipo again is a possibility. Apparently the restrictions on re-flipping players only applies to signed FAs.

    Itís reaching the point where it requires less time and effort to post games that have yet to be rescheduled.
