    The NBA 2020-21 offseason commences today.

    For those who haven't been following, the important personnel changes so far:
    • Doc Rivers now coaching the Sixers. Houston's Daryl Morey has also joined the Sixers as GM
    • Ty Lue coaching the Clippers
    • Steve Nash (with D'Antoni and Amare Stoudemire as assistants) will be coaching KD and Kyrie in Brooklyn. That should be interesting / hilarious
    • Houston seems to be moving to a new direction. They've hired Stephen Silas (Paul Silas' son) as head coach. Westbrook and Harden both seem to want out. Interesting to see where this goes
    • Bucks seem to be on a sticky wicket with Giannis. Their cap situation is bad, and I don't think they have a lot of flexibility to make changes. Giannis has been hinting an exit next year.
    Trade moratorium gets lifted today. Draft on Wednesday, free agency on Friday.

    First trade of the season already announced by Woj - Lakers acquiring Dennis Schroder from OKC.

    Good trade for the Lakers - cunts.

    Giannis will either land in Miami or Dallas imo.

    Flip a coin.
    Him or Wiseman.

    Top 10 player will be Denny Avidja - an Israeli kid.  Decent prospect him.

    Nobody wants to be picking at the top of this draft. Super underwhelming.

    Lamelo is a flashy passer, but boy his efficiency playing in NZ last year was putrid.

    Avdija looks like a nice prospect. Not a patch on Luka of course.

    There's another Israeli kid in the second round called Yam Madar - I really like the look of him as well.

    Very few prospects from Europe will ever get to Luka's level at his age ...
    Madar is definitely an interesting prospect - was not sure he'd get drafted ...
    His first name means Ocean/sea ...

    What about Anthony Edwards ? I've never seen any of these guys play but he's talked of as a potential no. 1 pick too

    Jrue Holiday to the Bucks for Bledsoe, George Hill and a slew of picks.

    Robert Covington traded to the Blazers for Ariza and a couple of picks. Looks like Houston is blowing it up. Expect a Harden trade soon.

    Talented, but highly questionable motor. This is not a good draft at all at the top end.

    Bucks have now also traded for Bogdan Bogdanovic from the Kings.

    Lopez, Giannis, Middleton, Bogdanovic, Holiday is a really nice starting 5. Maybe Giannis signs his supermax extension now.

    Don't know what bench depth they'll have now though.

    Great defensive pg who can score at a nice clip too.
    Gives them a chance to get Giannis but I think hell wait till next season to decide.

    Porzingis will miss start of season ... sucks

    If the Rockets were to deal Harden, I think the Sixers would give them better value with a package around Ben Simmons.

    @LeTallecWiz  Dallas did some great work today. Josh Green, Tyrell Terry and Tyler Bey - three of my favourite prospects in the draft, and just perfect fits next to Luka. I like the acquisition of Josh Richardson as well. You're going to be good.

    Phoenix made a head scratching selection at #10 again passing on some much better prospects. Don't really know where this team will go, even with the acquisition of CP3.

    I don't know much about Terry (but I read he's considered a really good 3pt shooter) and Bey - no clue who it is mate.
    Very happy with josh Richardson - i mean, Seth Curry is a great shooter (smart trade from Morey - spacing the floor for the sixers) but poor defensively.  Richardson is what we need on the wing ... If Porzingis can just get healthy, we'd be very dangerous ... but it all rests on Luka.  I really hope Giannis will be added next summer - perfect place for him (no state tax), European players and a great coach.

    I think you guys would be a top 6 team in the East easy ... In the west, it will be tough but you saw what Cp3's leadership did for the Thunder last year ...
