    I think most wanted to keep Ingram or Ball but their salaries had to be included to make the the trade work. Kuzma’s low 1.9m salary could’ve only be swapped with Hart’s 2m salary.

    Ingram is the better defender. For that reason alone i prefer him.

    He is better, but he has a condition that will affect him. Also, there was no way to keep him or Lonso because of their price tag. Kuzma will give them a chance to trade him for a better player even if he does not get substantially better playing with a Lebron system. But he plus Green can bring us back a pretty solid vet in return. Is a win win situation. Kuzma gets way better, we have his Bird rights and we can sign him for more ven going over 5he cap. If just stays at the level shown so far, he will be getting $ 9 to 10 mill. Green $15. That is our gain. We are fine!

    Las Vegas A Candidate To Host NBA Games?

    The National Basketball Association is already thinking about how it could rescue its season, and a revised tournament in Las Vegas leading to the finals could be its answer, assuming it’s safe to start playing again.

    After being the first U.S. league to suspend games due to the coronavirus outbreak, the NBA is hoping to salvage revenue, which The Washington Post reported could total $1 billion in losses.

    In his interview with ESPN last week, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said he wants to “believe we’re going to be able to salvage at least some portion of the season.”

    According to NBA executives and agents who discussed the matter with CNBC on condition of anonymity, the league remains focused on a return after suspending operations following Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month. Las Vegas has emerged as the best location to resume the season, according to league executives.

    Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera might just have his sights set on a bigger market.

    Longtime Grizzlies beat reporter Ronald Tillery reported on Friday that Pera inquired about moving the team last August.

    The Grizzlies began in Vancouver in 1995 and moved to Memphis in 2001. Despite having stars over the years like Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, and Zach Randolph, the team has only had one appearance in the Conference Finals since the move (though they have earned ten total playoff berths).

    Memphis is obviously one of the smaller markets in the NBA, and the Grizzlies have consistently ranked in the bottom ten in attendance in recent years. That said, the team did outdo expectations this season with a fresh core led by Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr gaining the No. 8 seed in the West. So a lot has changed since August, especially with that exciting new culture taking shape.

    Shaq O’Neal Says A Couple NBA Teams Are For Sale And One Might Be Going To Vegas

    There’s been a lot of speculation regarding the future of the NBA. As of today, there’s no clear path or date as to when the season is going to be resumed or even if it’s going to be canceled.

    However, we all know there are few businesses as profitable as the NBA. Every wealthy man on earth would kill to have the chance of buying a franchise and entering the sports industry like Steve Ballmer most recently did with the Los Angeles Clippers.

    Well, luckily for them, it seems like a couple of teams may be up for grabs in the foreseeable future, as Shaquille O’Neal recently sad in ‘The Big Podcast with Shaq’:

    “I hear in the grapevine that there are a couple of teams for sale and one may be going to Vegas,” the Big Diesel told Frank Caliendo.

    Shaq and Caliendo addressed the possibility of expansion similar to what the NHL did with the Golden Knights. Also, the Oakland Raiders are soon to debut in Las Vegas next season, so there’s definitely some traction to take sports to Nevada despite the clear conflict of interests with casinos and gambling.

    The NBA expansion has been a controversial matter the league doesn’t seem to be willing to address any time soon. Kentucky, Seattle, and Las Vegas have pushed long enough to have an NBA franchise.

    According to Shaq, Seattle is still a possibility but they’d need to buy an existent franchise, which seems unlikely. Also, he even said that there are rumors going on about an expansion overseas to China or Japan, with teams taking three days off before playing those teams in the road.

    Needless to say, it doesn’t seem like this will happen overnight as there’s obviously a lot of things to discuss there. But if the NBA, in fact, decides to expand, there are going to be ownership groups and billionaires lining up to try and join the party, for sure.

    The five best defensive power forwards of all time

    As part of the series, this list looks at the best defensive power forwards in NBA history. In case you missed it, Jason Kidd was the best defensive point guard, Michael Jordan was the best defensive shooting guard and John Havlicek led the way for small forwards.

    Although the previous lists featured minimal suspense, this list does feature some controversy: one of the most recognizable names is not a power forward. Like previous lists, players chosen for this list must have played a particular position for most, if not all, of their careers.

    And now, here are the top-five best defensive power forwards in NBA history.

    “The German Racecar”: Dirk Nowitzki

    As the original “stretch-four,” the sweet-shooting seven-footer is best known for his almost unstoppable fadeaway. Nowitzki used that to propel the Dallas Mavericks to an improbable championship run in 2011, upsetting LeBron James’ Miami Heat.

    As a 7-footer, Nowitzki relied on his offense and not his defense. Though he never made any All-Defensive Teams, he was still an able defender, having two seasons in the top-20 in defensive rating.

    Overall, his 62.5 DWS is 25th all-time. Not bad for a 7-footer that didn’t average more than 0.8 blocks and steals for his career.

    “Oak Tree”: Charles Oakley

    One of the premier enforcers in the NBA during the 1980s and 1990s, Oakley was as tough as they come: he played 1282 games and started 1159. His imposing nature on the court helped him get selected to one All-Star team during the 1993-94 season.

    Standing at 6-foot-8, Oakley was never a shot-blocker, instead racking up more than a steal per game. His savvy play resulted in two All-Defensive Team selections – one 1st team and 2nd team – and he had seven seasons in the top-20 in defensive win shares.

    Oakley’s 63.3 DWS is 23rd in NBA history. Although Oakley and Nowitzki are fairly close in terms of DWS standings, the next three blow them out.

    “The Big E”: Elvin Hayes

    Throughout his 16-year career, Hayes’ presence was felt all over the court: he averaged 21 points, 12.5 rebounds 1.8 assists, one steal and two blocks for his career. Averaging two blocks is an amazing feat for any player to accomplish, but bear in mind that “The Big E” stood at only 6-foot-9.

    Hayes had eight seasons in the top-20 in blocks and had 13 seasons in the top-20 in DWS. It’s surprising to see that he only made the All-Defensive team twice – both 2nd team selections – in his career.

    Nevertheless, his 83.6 DWS is good enough for eighth all-time in NBA history.

    “The Big Ticket”: Kevin Garnett

    No matter where he played, Garnett led by his intensity and defense: he averaged more than a block and a steal per game. “The Big Ticket” was the 2007-08 Defensive Player of the Year and his defense helped the 2008 Boston Celtics win the NBA championship.

    During his 21-year career, Garnett made the All-Defensive Team 12 times – nine times on the 1st team and three times on the 2nd team. He’s 18th all time in steals and blocks (1859 and 2037, respectively).

    Garnett’s defensive presence was instrumental to his success. That’s why the 2003-04

    MVP is seventh all-time with 91.4 DWS.

    “The Mailman”: Karl Malone

    As second in all-time points in NBA history (36,928), Malone’s offense was as steady as they come: he scored more than 20 points per game in 17 of his 19 seasons. Because of his longevity, Malone made 14 All-Star games and is a two-time MVP.

    Malone’s frame (6-foot-9, 250 pounds) made him an immovable force down in the low block. Even though he wasn’t the tallest defender, his individual defense helped him make four All-Defensive Teams – three times on the 1st team and once on the 2nd.

    In all, Malone’s 92.4 DWS is the most of any power forward, past or present, and is sixth in NBA history.
