    MVP: Steph Curry
    MIP: Ja Morant (But I badly want to say KPJ here.)
    ROY: Jalen Green
    DPOY: Giannis
    COTY: Steve Nash
    6MOY: Joe Ingles
    Champs: Brooklyn over Denver

    I don't understand why they wouldn't just give the role to Gupta. Everything I've ever heard about the guy has been about how respected he is as a basketball mind, and Morey has praised him in the...

    Would you trade CJ and RoCo straight up for Simmons at this point? I'm not even sure that makes the Blazers a better basketball team on paper.

    Yeah, I don't think it's just the lack of a jump shot. It's the mentality and the lack of improvement that are the bigger concern. If he wasn't especially athletic or skilled with the basketball, I...

    I think it's a combination of both, plus his contract. Simmons is definitely a valuable basketball player and somebody whose skillset is probably coveted by every team in the league. But you combine...

    There are other teams who could trade for him. OKC, for example, could easily trade for him and absorb some of his contract with their cap space. There's one or two other squads in similar positions,...

    I don't think anyone in the thread actually sees Wall as a better asset than Russell. Wiggins is probably about on par with Russell as an asset, but I'd give Russell the edge as a player and in terms...

    In the mindset of them needing more playmakers, sure. But Wall's lack of shooting would really hurt on New Orleans, who were dead last in 3-pointers made last season. It's probably a moot point,...

    From a personnel standpoint, yes. But it would have to be a buyout or involve a third team. The Pelicans don't have enough guys with large salaries who are tradeable. New Orleans isn't trading Ingram...

    Mmm.... That I would disagree with. I do think Wiggins, Kuminga and two firsts is way too much, though. Wiggins, Moody and one first feels more in the range of where Simmons' value is at right now....

    Again, these guys are all super young, though. Give him a hot minute to actually have a full season as a point guard before we judge him maybe? And he was playing for a dumpster fire of a team last...

    Yeah, we're in complete agreement on this. I know other Rockets fans who feel differently, but they're wrong. I also think, though, that the number of assets Houston would have to add to make it a...

    Not really. A guy who can score on all three levels, is shifty, can get his own shot from anywhere on the floor and is a legitimate playmaker is always going to have a place in the league, even if...

    I think if any team is a good fit for Simmons, it's the Kings, but I think the return needs to be right and the pieces need to be right. Nobody has more unnecessary point guards than Sacramento, and...

    I think if Wall wants to play, the Rockets' roster isn't so deep that he couldn't find minutes. Their point guard depth is especially thin. They've got KPJ—who's pretty much just played the position...

    And that's why I think a buyout is ultimately the most likely scenario. I know everything they've said points to that not being an option, but the longer they wait, the more likely it becomes.

    Here's the thing... I don't think they're going to get value for Wall. I think/hope one of three things will happen:

    1. Eventually Wall concedes that a deal isn't happening and he agrees to give...

    If I'm Sacramento, though, why would I give up Haliburton for Simmons? Like, I get that they have a glut of guards, but again, I think a 21-year-old Haliburton on a rookie contract with some...

    Mmm... Nah. It worked out pretty well for the Rockets, who ended up with the No. 2 overall pick. If they had traded for Simmons, they'd have fewer firsts today than what they got from the Nets on top...

    I think you play him as a 4 next to a big with some offensive range, and he'd be good to go. His value if he could accept that kind of role would skyrocket. I just don't think a winning team can play...
