    The NBA is a business and people get traded. He should be happy he was traded to an even better franchise/situation. Then again, if he likes Toronto, he could always stay. I'm sure he and his family could just barely survive and get by on what he's earned so far.

    Sad that DeRozan was lied to, but I can't feel bad for a guy going to San Antonio from Toronto. Better organization, no state income tax, better weather. He should take a step back and realize he's in a better situation now.

    10 years past his prime, Ben Wallace still with a better workout routine and better work ethic than Dre.

    Carter was insane. That dunk at 2:40 mark on the video...I don't even know what to say.

    2018 Summer League

    A highlight reel can make anyone looks passable, but in these games Ellenson looked atrocious. Shot broken and still isn't athletic enough to defend at PF or strong enough to rebound at C in the real league. If he had a stroke like Ryan Anderson maybe he could find his way to being a useful bench option on a team, but as it stands now I see no compelling reason to put him in a game unless your intent is get a higher draft pick at the end of the year. Thomas looked promising as a 3 and D player. Solid length and athleticism. Looks like he can knock down the open jumper. Got into trouble when he tried to create his own. Not sure how much he can contribute this year, but it'll be nice to root for his development and see if he can make the big leap into cracking the lineup at some point. Same for Brown who could have finished better at the rim, but showed flashes of aggressiveness on offense and tenacity/strength on defense that I really liked. It'll be interesting to see if he develops.

    Cousins and Green on the same team...is there any question which team will lead the league in technical fouls this year? Maybe the locker room will implode and give fans of the other 29 teams in the league a reason to watch the NBA again. This is getting a bit out of hand in GS. As for Calderon...ugh. As a 3rd PG I think you can do better, but you just hope he stays a 3rd PG. Also not entirely happy about losing one of our best defenders, leaders, and 3 pt shooters in Tolliver either. I hope there are some trades coming that are more significant than just Leuer or Galloway - although those deals would be nice to get out of as well.

    Zero desire to watch Ellenson. He is what I said he was on draft night. I'm interested to see if Kennard takes a step forward and how Thomas looks since we gave up future picks to get him.

    Thanks for posting this. I assume Kennard and Thomas will play, so maybe that'll be slightly interesting.

    I'm just talking about having the best teams in the right order in the playoffs. They aren't getting on buses to get from city to city anymore, they all have private jets with all the amenities you can imagine. If we need to change the regular season to make playoff seeding more fair, that's easy too.

    Pistons sign Glenn Robinson III

    Nice signing, especially for the price. Now it's time for some trades.

    Time for the NBA to make some changes for the playoffs. They started to blur the lines between East/West already at the All Star game and it was well received.

    https://www.freep.com/story/sports/nba/pistons/2018/06/28/detroit-pistons-anthony-tolliver-improved-shot-noahlytics/737249002/ Interesting Tolliver article on how he improved his shot. Maybe someone should talk to Stanley...

    There was about a 3 month period when I would have agreed with this. My current feeling is that I'd happily take Tolliver over Leuer because of his defense, leadership, attitude, and 3 point shooting. Keep in mind that I'm speaking from the standpoint of roughly 15 min/game. If you're counting on either of them for more than that, then we've got bigger problems.

    Do you expect SA to be thinking rebuild when they just made the playoffs in the West without Leonard all year? I don't. They'll reload with whatever they get from the Leonard trade and make the playoffs not counting whatever else they might be able to pull off in trades or free agency.
