You all have probably seen the headline on the PSD home page. Pelicans faced punishment for wanting to sit davis the rest of the season due to an "injury" and more rest wou;dn't hurt. What I'm wondering is why the NBA is stopping tanking now when they allowed philly to keep out their top guys long after they were ready and call it an "injury" and face no repracussions.

Because they're clearly lying and have a history of not being genuine.

If a player requests a trade you should be under no obligation to play them. The rule was to prevent the Spurs from resting on nationally televised games, not to force teams to play guys who are going to disrupt the rest of your team.

The Pels did not do what LeBron/the secret government wanted

AD requested a trade, NO talked to a few teams but didn’t find a reasonable offer. Boston says to wait until the offseason because of the stupid rule they have in place regarding Kyrie so NO does.

Maybe the NBA is mad because they weren’t playing him so he didn’t get hurt and hurt his future value to a team who legally can’t obtain him when he wanted out.

I don’t know, maybe that’s why.

Definitely reasonable, but I think Demps didn’t want to form another super team like he did with the Clippers. And Boston does have better assets, assuming he can get them.

But Demps should have been fired before all of this. How some of these **** GMs keep their jobs is beyond me. He was gifted AD only because of how bad they were and hasn’t done **** all else.

Why because he didn't give Davis to the Lakers? Why would he accept the Lakers deal when he can get a better headliner with Boston. If i'm 29 NBA teams, I am forcing the Lakers to stay with Lonzo Ball until he becomes a FA.

Once Boston says no to trading Tatum, what’s next for the Pelicans? Lakers offered rookie contracts and multiple picks. Can’t get much better then that without taking on big contracts.

It’s goint to be a ugly break up with Pelicans.

they could just offer him up to any and every other team that miss out on top free agents... they basically just took a shat on the lakers you dont think they will trade him elsewhere if boston doesnt blow them away with tatum and others? lololol adorable.

Saying that you’re willing to enter into trade negotiations when you were never going to make a trade isn’t working anyone, it’s bad business. I’m no Laker fan but that was ****ed up.

Why would anyone offer anything special for a player who’s about to become free? Best they can get are players on max contracts like Beal, Wiggns and DeRozen. The team gets to dump salery and reset when Davis leaves. What Pelicans want are players like Tatum, Simmons and KAT. No way you trade young elite players who are on rookie deals.

Boston will try to add Hayward and his max in any trade.

Nah you wern't getting fleeced. By the way i love how Lonzo name is always the first name listed in the trade package like he is some big name player. In all honesty if i were NO I would ask for Hart. Kuzma, BI, and Hart all have to be in the deal. The Lakers can keep Lonzo and his nut of a father.

Sure whatever makes you feel better. Just pointing out that Hart is way more valuable then Ball is. Let Magic live with his mistake of getting tricked by the con artist(LaVar). Nobody should be punished by having to deal with LaVar. Like i said I would ask the Lakers to swap Hart for Ball. Then i would do the deal.

There is the fact that NO is going to have to trade Lonzo again because of his stubborn father. Add in Lonzo's play and only one team can trade for him(Suns), they can only get a 2nd round pick for him. And if they can't trade him, they got to deal with the headache known as LaVar. So yeah i'm sorry i am trying to get the Pelicans more value, especially when its said that player would sign a contract extension with LA.

No. Rights rules should be unchanged in this scenario.

Now if you want to do away with all rights that's a different conversation

Its already in the cba, certain amount of time off the court can lead to the player becoming a free agent. I say we shorten that and punish the evil team

I think we offered to much, how many teams will be willing to offer up their best assets knowing that more than likely he leaves as a free agent anyway! Unless he agrees to resign before the deal is completed, it doesn't make alot of sense! So that offer probably will be the best they get!...Also AD is starting to look very brittle, he's getting injured every time you turn around!
