    You have to be ****ing kidding me. This is pure ********. Please let this be some kind of Net's bargaining tool that doesn't actually involve the Pacers. The NBA is passing Lopez up. What in the hell is Bird thinking? He says he wants to adapt to the league but nearly every single move has screamed the opposite.
    Lopez is a stretch 5 now, and this seems more like a move to add a more efficient, polished big.

    Guys the time of making fun of Grimp on his trade proposals is over, this **** is even worse than his proposals.

    We haven't done anything yet, people. Only Peter freaking Vecsey is even reporting this as a rumor.

    That's...not a ringing endorsement of DeMarcus Cousins.
    Exactly, and they see him every single day.

    It makes sense because the Nets have no 2017 pick this Summer. They also want out from under that contract. Stuckey is an expiring (ETO) and Jefferson's salary decreases after next season. Lopez is owed I think $42 mil over the next two seasons.

    Grimp you don't need to walk me through the logic of why this deal is plausible, I get that. I'm just stating that nothing has happened yet. Nothing is imminent. If we get multiple sources saying something similar, then I'll take this more seriously.

    It would be better to have some wings that can actually play consistent defense and rebound.

    I think that could have probably been considered potential tampering. Not sure what the rules are for players.

    Jennings is an idiot.

    Crazy Peter Vescey doesn't count as a source atm...if Woj says its a possibility, then I'll start sweating bullets.

    True. But it's the only Pacers bit we've had all weekend since the non-existent 2017 1st was put on the table.

    Peter is hit or miss but he is located in and does business in the NY area. If anyone would know what the NY teams are doing it's him.

    He is, or at least was, close to Donnie Walsh.

    That will probably be Larry's next move. The Lopez move (should it pan out into concrete reality) would signify Thad to the bench or adding a second stretch 5 to the roster. But yeah if we realistically get Lopez and then call it a deadline I'd be pissed. We need shooting. Now there is the off hand possibility Lopez is a chip to land someone else. We could get him then flip him for other stuff.

    Oh, he totally counts. He's very close to Donnie Walsh. I'm pretty sure he broke the Mel Daniels news.

    Brook Lopez, are you ****ing kidding me? We're a team that can't rebound or defend; we're seriously thinking about getting one of the worst rebounders of all time with foot speed that longs for the days of Roy Hibbert?

    DeMarcus just lost out on a ton of money which has to be most devastating to him. Now he's going to have no loyalty anywhere so it's possible New Orleans will also lose out in this deal but they didn't give up a ton.

    The Kings are expected to waive Langston Galloway once this deal for Boogie is complete. Any interest?

    They're saying the same thing about Vlade. Vlade said they weren't trading him, then they traded him.

    Is this the worst trade in NBA history? If not, it has to be up there.
    Its up there. I would also suggest the Pau trade from Memphis to the Lakers as one too.
    PACER FAN ON STRIKE!!!-The moment the Pacers fire Larry Bird I will cheer for them again.

    Well at least for AD he knows how to play with Boogie because they were teammates at Kentucky.

    Galloway isn't making enough of a difference to cut somebody on the roster's guaranteed money, only if somehow there was a 1 for 2 or 2 for 3 trade then maybe.

    I don't think they played with each other at KY..missed each other by a season.

    Man, is there a more talented frontcourt in the league?

    The Kings are a joke, they better draft a superstar because nobody is going there now. It's a damn shame Gay got injured because he would've been a decent fit.

    That actually ended up being a pretty solid deal for Memphis.
