You can PM me for the offer to beat if you’re interested.

No deal that I like 100% yet - never like settling on any deal especially if it’s for assets I don’t mind keeping (Beal, CHA 1st, etc.)

INDIANA ACTIVELY SHOPPING UNTOUCHABLE?
Unknown sources have leaked intel that the Pacers have been actively shopping one of their "untouchables" in 22-year old George DePaula. Reports are that despite DePaula being 3rd in the league in assists per game, he doesn't fit in the scheme the Pacers are hoping to eventually run. DePaula is currently averaging 14.7PPG, 7.3APG, 5.1RPG while shooting 45% from the floor. The pass-first guard has another 6 years before he even reaches his prime, so it remains to be seen how good he will truly become. Indiana has made it clear they have no problems keeping him on the team, but if an offer comes along for the lockdown defender they crave, we could be seeing quite a blockbuster trade prior to the deadline.

Chicago Looking For More.

With two deals already agreed in these first days of offseason, the Bulls are trying to get a better look at their next season’s roster much earlier in the offseason as they handled two teams offers these past days.
This would bring almost a full new group to play around Lauri Markkanen, the only safe player in the roster. Last year acquisition Kentavious Caldwell-Pope seems to be untouchable as well, although no source confirmed that information.

Right now with the 2 trades confirmed, Bulls roster stands at 11 players, making room for a Free Agent acquisition, if desired. It’s not clear yet if Chicago will elect to use its cap space to try to lure a household name or just resign their players while working with the exception.

Thunder considering rebuild

The newly crowned OKC Thunder are considering a rebuild. After just winning, is there really a point to repeat?
Speaking to gm Andrew, here's his thoughts:
"We are a little late in the game with rebuilding and need to play catch up with the other teams. Whether it's this or next year, the rebuild will happen".

Unfortunately no one wants to give up any valuable assets for Klay, Bledsoe, MKG, or even Stanley. It seems like teams are holding on tight to their young talent and picks. So right now, things are pointing towards another strong playoff run next season.

But anything could happen still...

Jazz comfortable with taking their full time allotment. The team deciding between a few players but are hamstrung from not scouting positions/players that were not a need. Pick expected to be announced late Wednesday, January 9.

Yes, in that I want to get the usuals riled up. No, in that I'm not going to take forever to make this pick.

It's a yearly thing. Otherwise who cares. I respect holding it up for business but if it's just to annoy people why?

I look at it as common courtesy. It's like when you're sitting in public transport and an old person or pregnant lady walks in - there is no hard rule to say you absolutely have to give up your seat, but it's common courtesy as part of living in a society with others.

Also, if TJ manages to make his pick - there is really no excuse :)

LOL. Absolute worst analogy but I get your point.

People don't stay in their seat to get an "old person or pregnant lady" riled up. I'd be the first one out of the seat for an elderly person, child , woman, etc. Matter of fact, if I'm on a bus or train, I tend to stand anyway so that seats remain available for others.

Either way, I took too long once or twice maybe (never intentionally) and now if it takes more than 5 minutes to make my pick it becomes a major deal around here. For some people in particular.

I'm not going to rush into the pick and I don't spend everyday or night prepping for the draft - making a board (roflmaogtfo). I scout and I pull together what I can in advance but when it comes down to it - I need time to see who is left and narrow it down. Honestly, this draft is the one I was most pre-draft ready for and it still didn't matter. Possibly because I don't like anyone left but who knows - everyone has different values.

PS: suck it

Don't you dare to laugh at my precious draft board ;)

I also prefer to stand in public transport. We should hang out dude - we have so much in common :)

Actually on the Vegas buses, the section is specifically marked for those groups, so yeah, your ass does have to get up.

Chicago Announces They Won't Renounce Capela, McCollum.

Certainly some fans were shocked with the idea of Capela and McCollum not being renounced in favour of fan favourite Derrick Rose coming back to the Bulls.
"We do have some other plans for FA and can't really have the luxury of disposing of enough time to risk there", said Marcos. "So we're going to keep bird rights on Clint and CJ and look to bring them back. Whatever happens next, happens".
The Bulls are expected to offer a 5 year deal to Capela. It's not been disclosed how much they are willing to offer McCollum, but some heard Marcos saying "it's definitely over the MLE. No risks losing that guy to another team".
