    NBA 2018-19 NBA Trade Deadline and Post-Deadline Thread

    Was it really necessary for the Bulls to throw in Bobby Portis in their Jabari Parker-for-Otto Porter swap with the Wizards? You would think the Wizards would have been fine with just dumping Porter's contract for Parker's expiring salary.

    Also, I hate that the NBA has become where any decent young-ish player who is set to hit the free agent market is entitled to a max contract, so the Clippers have to trade Tobias Harris because they don't want to pay him the max because God forbid a team negotiates a reasonable extension with a decent, but not-elite player to build with instead of blindly chasing superstars or bust.

    Yeah... the way they do contracts in the NBA is baffling. I wonder what would happen if they removed max contracts and all the exceptions they have for veteran's and stuff.

    And the Lakers just gave up on their promising 21-year old big man Zubac because they didn't want to be forced into re-signing him to Jordan Clarkson money when he hits restricted free agency.

    for a guy they could have easily had in the offseason (or a similar type of stretch big) instead of signing all the guys with zero range (rondo heroics aside)

    You'd get some players making ARod-level contracts. You'd probably have even worse salaries if there wasn't some sort of 'ceiling'

    Yeah, the Lakers deserved a better offseason, but I guess I'm just numb to all of Magic's failures when I feel complacent that at least he didn't sign Mozgov to a $64 million deal.

    Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol are steamrolling the Dubs and Boogie Cousins is nowhere to be found.

    Serge dropping 20 in 2019 against the dubs is the wildest thing I’ve ever heard. I love it so much. God bless these raptors

    I know that the teams that KD has been linked to will feel like their offseason plans have been ruined, but if his Achilles was part of his original injury and it was going to linger through next season, I think the interested teams dodged a bullet, unless they're still desperate enough to give him a max deal.

    Wasn't meant to be for Boogie Cousins. On the flip side, Patrick McCaw has 3 rings in his first 3 seasons in the league. GOAT.
