Can we bring the GOAT discussion to this thread?
Hoping D Wade and the Heat makes the playoffs.

Henry signs contract for rest of the season.  Hopefully he can show enough so the Knicks pick up the option.

DJO has been playing well all season for Iowa Wolves in g league. Just won player of the month for February.  Hopefully, something good happens for DJO.

Also in 12 days his suspension for doping expires. So who knows he may back in Italy playing with Travis or Jamil again soon.

DJO finished up a very successful season with the Iowa Wolves. Unfortunately he was not called up by the T Wolves. However, now that his drug suspension is over he has signed a contract to finish out the season in Italy. I hope he plays for the MU TBT again this year.

JFB has opted for free agency. Sixers can pay him more than others, but it's nice to think about where he might end up.

It wasn't funny the first 10 times...

If he travels west, I think JFB ends up with the Clippers.  Leonard and JFB with the nice young pieces they have.

Sounds like you should retire it after this brief unsuccessful run.

Jae's headed to Memphis. Traded with Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver, and 2 picks for Mike Conley.

I'm a big fan of Conley's and would love to have him on the Bucks.  That's a pretty steep price for a 32 year old though.

I don't think they overpaid. I think as of now it is a win for Utah.

2 bench guys and a shooter at the end of his career. Plus 2 draft picks that look to be in the 20s.

Agreed. If healthy, Conley is still one of the top 5-10 PGs in the world.

In a way, it makes sense. The Warriors dynasty appears over - or at least for a year - and the west is there for the taking, especially with Houston apparently in shambles. Added to that, Toronto showed this year that bold, risky moves can reap big rewards.

All that said, how much better does Conley make the Jazz. Does this push the past the Lakers with a (presumably) health LeBron and AD? Probably not. Does this make them better than Portland or Denver? I'm a bit skeptical.
I laud them for the effort, but I don't see this moving the needle for them all that much.

Agreed.  This all but guarantees Rubio walks, they lose 2 of their more reliable shooters (their weakness), and they get a guy who will be 32 years old, has consistently had injury issues, and is  going to make $66M over the next 2 seasons.  In a league where you need the elite of the elite to win a title, they don't have that.  I see a lot of "solid" to "very good" players and no "great" players on this team.  When's the last time a team without a top 5 player in the NBA won a title?  I'm not sold this team has even a top 20 player in the NBA (Gobert is good, but offensively limited).

Yup.  That's the last team I can think of.  So 15 years ago.  And that team had one player who will most likely make the HOF (Billups) and another one who is a coin flip for it (Wallace, as crazy as it is to think a guy who never averaged double figures in scoring for a season could be a HOFer).  I'm not sure the Jazz have any future HOFers.  Gobert could get there eventually.  I personally don't see it with Mitchell and I don't think Conley has even made an AS Game (which he should have by now).

I agree. Conley just makes them a bit better - not a favorite.

My point was that Memphis got not very much in return. There was no doubt that the Griz will be Ja’s team, so apparently that was the best offer they got.

I just don’t see

I think for Memphis, the return is not paying Mike Conley $67 million over the next two years. He's a good player and all, but an oft-injured point guard on the wrong side of 30 is useless for a rebuilding team.
