No. Doesn’t mean they won’t, but I’m not expecting it.

Yep. If the drafted player is at the draft, we’ll be treated to that grandest of traditions where the poor kid has to put on a Sixers hat, knowing full well he’s a Laker.

Agree? Sure. Consummate? No, not until after the Draft tomorrow night. But that’s just 24 hours away.

As mentioned in the podcast today, don't be too shocked if Rockets do the same as Philly here (trade 46 for a future pick). They might be better off in the trade market with that rather than a player selected in the draft.

We actually discussed this very pick (39th) being traded! Philly had a whopping SIX picks in this year’s draft. Either 38 or 39 was bound to get dealt.

Another quality center now under contract for the Hawks for next season. Good news for those hoping the minimize the risk of a max offer sheet to Clint Capela.

Incorrect. If a RFA gets more than a 20% raise, then "Base Year Compensation" issues make his outgoing trade value equal to the greater of (a) his prior salary or (b) 50% of his new salary. Still counts 100% as incoming salary, making trade more difficult to pull off.

Incorrect. Restricted free agents can be signed-and-traded, but not to a 5-year deal.

That would leave CLE (currently facing luxury tax issues even without LeBron) hard-capped. Unlikely they'd want to be hard-capped.

I think Brooklyn would rather have Carroll at $15.4M than Shumpert at $11M.

Considered Carroll as an option, but not after today's trade of Mozgov for Dwight. Entire purpose of that trade for BKN was to create 2x (or 3x!) max cap room in 2019 for the Nets. Doubt they'd want Ryno's salary on the books in 2019-20.

I try not to get too far into scenarios that involve extraordinary charity from free agents.

My guess: Seeing how high a pick they could fetch for Eric Gordon. Can't think of any other reasonable explanation. Still, doubt anything comes of this (if it's even true).

We're Landry's Select Club members, my friend. We're way ahead of the curve on this.

I think CLE is subject to it this season. I forget if MIA actually paid it or avoided it eventually. GSW avoided it due to the huge cap spike in 2016 but will likely face it soon.

No way. I would be shocked if that were the case. 95%+ sure the Rockets will be paying a HEFTY luxury tax bill next season.

I'm actually not so sure the Rockets would want to deal Ryno for Melo. Sadly, the talent gap is not THAT huge between the two. Melo will cost a TON more. And Ryno at least gives HOU ongoing matching salary for trades beyond next season. Don't overlook that last factor.
