    Have to lol at the Magic. They traded away Olidipo for Ibaka, then traded Ibaka for Ross who is Oladipo lite.

    He is on an Oladipo lite contract to boot though. I think those two have similar trade value. It's the pick drop from 11 to likely somewhere in the 20's that's going to hurt though, depending on which 1st round pick they got.

    Wonder what 1st round pick Toronto gave up, their own or the Clippers lol...I honestly think it's a decent deal for a guy who was leaving. I don't think Ross is a ton worse than Oladipo and Orlando can do a move with their picks now to get a vet they want or move up in draft to get 1 guy. The initial trade was dumb but they at least salvaged something alright in the end.

    They don't play Hezonja so I don't think it's an issue, they'd trade him for anything decent if they could..I'll thank Orlando as one of the teams that allowed the Pacers to get Myles.

    Yeah I don't hate it as much as everyone else seems to. The initial trade showed a lack of foresight, but not doubling down on dumb and moving on is the right move and a pretty nice recovery. I too put Ross and Dipo as not that far off, especially when contracts are considered. I'm also not sure a pick in the 20s this year is much worse than the 11th pick is last year's mediocre draft.

    I think they keep him. As meh as he is in pretty much every other facet of his game, they now finally have a consistent long-range shooter - something that roster desperately needed.

    Considering that Oladipo signed that big extension bt hasn't proven to really be a huge difference maker in OKC, I don't think Orlando did too bad.

    They were going to lose Ibaka for nothing. Obviously it was a dumb trade initially, but to be able to get a young, athletic wing and a first for a guy that was going to bolt in FA is a pretty good move IMO.

    It should be either Beal or Dragic. Going for a positional replacement would be unfair to those guys.

    Yeah......Dipo ( another Wing ) + 1st Round early to mid Teens pick for Terrence Ross + late 1st round pick.

    Hennigan himself recognizes that he's in the Hot seat and that the criticism is warranted.

    He's still an asset. I'd assume that this will allow Aaron Gordon to play more minutes ( if not Start ) at the PF spot. The Magic Frontcourt is fairly thin with Vucevic and Biyombo. This would allow for a shift to play more small ball with Fournier/Ross/Hezonja to play more Wing Minutes.

    Should be Carmello. It would be hilarious if Porzingis made the team. It would **** everybody off. Guys like Mike Conley and Lillard aren't all-stars out west, and KP is an all star. Makes no sense

    Disagree, he is only 21 years old averaging 11 and 5 while playing out of position, he also plays for one of the worse offensive teams in the league.


    Put him on a good offensive team as the PF and watch him average good numbers.

    I should be impressed with those pedestrian numbers in 27 minutes per game? Shooting 42% from the field? Nah, he's got loads of talent but he's an athlete playing basketball.

    Well how many players are doing what he is doing at 21 years of age while playing out of position? I don't think Milsap had those kind of numbers on his 2nd year in the NBA.
