...because they lost Howard with what, 2 weeks left in the season? Kinda hard to adjust on the fly with that.
I'd agree, but the premise of my post was to say that a lot of Anderson's production was based off of Howard's presence. As another poster stated, nobody's game suffered as dramatically as Anderson's. His offense was predicated off teams double teaming Howard, or 3's in transition.
He's pretty bad defensively bc he's not strong enough to guard the post, but he's not nearly as fast enough to guard on the perimeter.
Wojo saying Bynum has Houston, Cleveland, and Dallas on his list of places he could go in FA/sign an extension if he was traded. Seems very money-oriented.
Random, but if we DIDN'T keep Hibbert, and kept some cap space this year....would we have enough cap space to be in the running for Bynum too? I feel like we'd be the best team out of that list, although without Hibbert we will regress. Just a thought. Not sure we'd even want him based on his attitude.
Ayon should of been a guy we targeted if we were looking for a great dirty worker at C like Bird said at the draft. He is a solid 2 way guy very athletic sets nice screens good PnR defender and very smart player good passer and knows his role. Could of drafted a high upside guy or BPA like PJ3 and got a player of need via trade.
very good value for the Magic IMO nice TPE and player

Am I the only one who thinks "max contracts" has ruined the league somewhat?
Here is my thinking,
The problem with Max contracts is it gives equal value to guys like Lebron and Hibbert, and we all know every team would take Lebron over Hibbert if they had the choice, and since players like Lebron can't make more than a certain amount anyways, their decision comes down to possible marketing situation of the location, and that is where the small market teams get screwed over, If lebron was to actually get market level we all know he would make a lot more than he is now, if you allow the market to determine players worth, it would be a lot harder to have a team with 2 or 3 stars, it would make the league more fair, I keep thinking back to the late 90's early 2000's(my personal golden era of the NBA) where stars where scattered all over the NBA, I think its best if the NBA if they got rid of the max contracts and lets owners out bid for a player, I know they put in the max to try to protect the owners, but I just think it just helps big market owners and that is it, anyone who plays fantasy football using an auction format knows what I am talking about, but yeah, that's just my 2cents, interested in what you guys think
Humphries is not restricted, Cleveland can just sign him.
So if they are in this deal, I'd expect them to get a #1 or some asset for being helpful, not give it up.
Good point. How good is Bojan Bogdanovic? Brooklyn owns his rights. Would he be a worthwhile asset for Cleveland?
Although, thinking about it again, if Cleveland trades Walton for Humphries, they get to keep most of their cap space and sign another player or acquire one via trade. So the clear roster upgrade from Walton to Humphries might be worth a late first rounder.
...and the Cavs will likely get millions in luxury tax revenue for facilitating this deal...
But they get to potentially hamper the Heat dynasty. I really don't think that's out of the question for their reasoning. I mean, they just passed on Thomas Robinson, to probably trade a #1 pick for a probably overpaid Humphries?
