Jazz not settling. Traded next year's Thunder 1st round pick for Ricky Rubio. Two interesting Rubio stats: Only three NBA players to average 8 apg and 2 spg over career: Stockton, Paul and Rubio. And Rubio had a great 2nd half of the season. He is younger and healthier than George Hill. Hopefully the Jazz re-sign Hayward's best bud Ingles and now with Rubio that will be enough to re-sign Hayward.According to Bovada, the new odds on team Gordon Hayward will sign next contract with:
Boston Celtics- 10/11 -110
Utah Jazz- 3/2 +150
Miami Heat-12/5 +240
Funny that Pritchard took less than the reported most recent offfer by the Celtics to ship George out of the East. He should have taken the best deal and worry more about his teams future than just next year.OKC literally stole Paul George.
Lol Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.
Oladipo's contract is awful. 4 years 82 million.
Kevin Prichard is an awful GM.
Danny Ainge wouldn't give any real pieces for a rental. OKC got away from an awful contract and has a new Kevin Durant to play with Westbrook for 1 year.
Do you believe that? Seems like every time Boston fails to make a trade, we then hear about how great their offer wasCeltics offer on draft night for Paul George was 3 first-round picks (not the Nets pick next year or the Lakers/Kings pick) and two starters.
Kevin Prichard failed. He got no picks in this trade.
In an ideal world where half of them don't get injured before the all star break, sure. But to me right now they're a bunch of unproven primadonnas.The Sixers could absolutely make the playoffs. The East is so bad. If I had to guess, the Cavs get Melo and Boston gets Hayward and that sets up two contenders and a bunch of nonsense.
I'm leaning towards Hayward staying after the Rubio trade. There's a plan in Boston, but it definitely doesn't look to be happening as it's written up.The Sixers could absolutely make the playoffs. The East is so bad. If I had to guess, the Cavs get Melo and Boston gets Hayward and that sets up two contenders and a bunch of nonsense.
