    Buddy Hield CANNOT start.

    Excellent point. And I'd go one step further and add that the most likely scenario where Marvin Bagley justifies his top 5 pick status is on a team that gets out and runs every chance they get. Taking Fox, Hield, and Bagley and forcing them to play flat-footed half court offense is...

    Woj: Kings let Bogi go

    Wow, so Giannis wanted Bogdan, the Bucks made a trade happen, somebody in the Bucks organization got a little too excited about it and blabbed, other GMs (read: Atlanta) got pissed and went to the league office, the league office threatened to veto the trade, Bogdan signed with Atlanta. This is...

    Buddy Hield CANNOT start.

    Well now that we've cleared up if this is pettiness or actual measured dissatisfaction with Buddy as a basketball player, I'm sorry to inform you that you are most likely going to be very unhappy with what you see a month from now. Also, the sooner people realize that social media is not news...

    Woj: Kings let Bogi go

    Can we please not make this another American Kings fans vs. European Kings fans schism? We're not the ones calling the shots here, we're just giving our opinions. I'll give you another reason why I voted against matching the Atlanta offer sheet... I really don't like 3 guard lineups for...

    Current Kings roster and holes to fill

    His contract is probably unguaranteed, but you did leave out our undrafted free agent signing G/F Quinton Rose from Temple. I guess you could pencil him in as SF depth. Some of these positional alignments are subjective-- I don't really consider PF to be a thing anymore in any meaningful way and...

    Woj: Kings let Bogi go

    If passing on Doncic was some kind of front to avoid the perception of favoritism toward the son of a former teammate of Vlade's, that's just about the worst decision in the history of professional basketball. Either a player is talented or not. There may have been some snickering going on about...

    Poll: should the Kings match the offer for Bogi?

    We've arrived at the place all rebuilding teams eventually arrive at which is the "something's gotta give" phase. We could stay the course, pay everybody, and keep building or if we're closer to a rebuild than a championship we'll have to prioritize and plan for the future. If we didn't already...

    Bucks Trade In Jeopardy: Bogi Didn’t Agree Go to the Bucks

    This is the punchline we need right now. Thank you! :D

    Poll: should the Kings match the offer for Bogi?

    I'm definitely more mad at the Atlanta front office for being the biggest jerks in the room at the end of the day than all other parties involved, but that's kindof just how business works in this country isn't it? And now that they've blown every scrap of salary cap space they had putting...

    Bucks Trade In Jeopardy: Bogi Didn’t Agree Go to the Bucks

    We're collateral damage here, but we can blame him for blowing up the Milwaukee trade and if the net result is that we get nothing in return, than yeah he has kinda screwed us. Which is his right as a free agent.

    Free Agency

    I don't think Bagley is a negative value player, but I also think the best way to maximize his value as an asset is probably to trade him now before he depreciates further. I feel like most people have penciled him into their lineups long-term on the assumption that he gets better and eventually...

    Bucks Trade In Jeopardy: Bogi Didn’t Agree Go to the Bucks

    Holmes is a solid player, he was our best defender last season. I'm note sure I would throw him in either. I could be talked into including Bagley though. :)

    Free Agency

    I would think they would put them after the first round. That's basically what they do in MLB. Picks at the top of the second round aren't useless though. There's always three or four first round talents available there.

    All-NBA Free Agency Thread 2020

    That kinda money changes things. Nobody else was going to offer him $30 million a year. If I were an NBA journeyman one-time All-Star coming off a year where I was maybe the fourth or fifth best player on my team I'd play on the moon for $30 million a year.

    Bucks Trade In Jeopardy: Bogi Didn’t Agree Go to the Bucks

    These are two different transactions though. There's nothing stopping Atlanta from changing their mind about paying Bogdan $20 million a year after we match the contract meaning it's now our contract and we've either totally screwed our salary cap keeping a team together which hasn't made the...

    Free Agency

    Yes but the point here is that those are cultural differences. The motivation for both players is the same so pleading empathy for one guy because you like the way he goes about his business more comes off as disingenuous when the same benefit was not conveyed to his teammate. I argued last...

    Free Agency

    In Buddy's case, the owner of the team did tell him he was the next Steph Curry as soon as he stepped off the airplane.

    Free Agency

    Buddy's deal was never atrocious, some people just don't understand how value works in professional sports. Generally speaking, if it's a player that anyone else is interested in you have to overpay in the immediate future with the understanding that inflation is going to catch up and justify it...

    All-NBA Free Agency Thread 2020

    Considering that the newer harsher no tampering rules put in place by the NBA have guaranteed that teams didn't communicate with free agents until 3pm this afternoon, it's interesting how all these deals were negotiated and agreed upon in just a few hours. :rolleyes:
