    Dame will go off…no doubt but he is 9700 and like was mentioned he could have 47 DK points in 2.5 quarters and the rest of the game is Anfernee Simon’s and Gary Trent if Beal sits. But then again I think the Blazers are trying to lose as well.

    I’ll base my decision on whether or not Terry Stotts is wearing a bow tie

    Being in Washington makes it less likely of a blowout. Except for the Magic game, the Wizards have kept it close for the most part at home. They crushed Miami too.

    Tobias priced way too low

  • Briancobb33

    Tonights skeleton key is Alex Len. I plan on paying all the way down to jam in Harden and AD fill in with wizards and celtics

  • monarch

    Ennis is out…Thybulle is out. That’s a lot of opportunity for Freaking Korkmaz and all you can eat for J Rich.

    I like him but I also like LeBron/Ingram stack.

    Ingram shot 4/21 and had 40 FPTs in the first matchup.

    Saw that as well. made me auto lock ingram lol.

    Lebron is the easiest fade of the night for me especially on FD. Rather pay up for PF (AD) or SG than SF. SF has tons of guys who can get 40-50. BI, Hayward, Tobias. Lebron would need an 80 burger and the other SF’s to bust bad. Pretty easy fade for me. PF is the hardest spot for me on FD today.

    DSJ went through shootaround. Might throw a wrench into my Frank play.

    That most likely means Elf is going to miss.

    Who’s everyones favourite low priced C on DK? I’m looking at Javale, Theis, and Portis right now.

    Right now, Theis and Anzejs Pasecniks.

    Simmons needs to be traded.

    Yea, it doesn’t seem like Elf would play if it’s listed as a personal issue. I’m just wondering if it’s like 30-18 or 24-24 in terms of minutes between Frank/DSJ

    That wasn’t your frank play, that was everyone’s frank play 😎

    Still should be btw

    Drummond trade talks with ATL? Lol, Trae/Drummond/Collins would be interesting lol.

    Everywhere, Drummond opting out is the rumor forcing DET to trade him or let him walk for nothing.

    One of my 20 for 20 predictions that I posted when I was drunk on New Years eve was the Detroit would trade Drummond for virtually nothing in return, as opposed to paying him what he want’s, or letting him walk for nothing.

    I just looked it up, I saw Parsons expiring contract and Hunter for Drummond. Makes a lot of sense with free agency having a good class.

    Ish is their sixth man

    And anytime Dame faces him, he will go off. You do know that 6th men will get minutes versus the starters at some point during the game. Dame will abuse him. Dame will abuse IT. Dame will abuse anyone and everyone tonight.

  • Ace15

    28M PO next year, guess Drummond wants change of scenery ASAP and another year in DET even at 28M isn’t worth it. This years class is pretty weak too so he’ll prob lock up something long term in the off-season. DET got pull the trigger obtain something in return.

    It doesn’t sound like a deal is imminent but we could have a Jordan Clarkson situation tonight. Not that people should really go there but I’d be careful with any non-core pieces of Atlanta today.

    The thing is, that Centers of Drummond’s ilk are a dying breed in the NBA. You don’t have to go much further than today’s ESPN story to see why. If you don’t space the floor and shoot threes, there is a limited market for you. If Drummond has a 28M player option, he would be dumb to decline it, because no one is going to sign him in free agency for anything close to that price. Well, maybe a desperate team like the Knicks, but no one else.

    Someone will pay him. ORL just paid Vuc 28 MIL a year, so Drum should get at least that, but not much more. He I’m sure thinks he’s worth the max. His agent probably thinks he should get he max. Detroit is trying to be smart and not give him the max, because of exactly those reasons. CHA supposedly is hot for him. If ATL is also, I’m sure between those two teams the Pistons will get someone solid out of it if they start bidding against each other somewhat. Obviously whatever team trades for him will know what he’ll command salary wise and obviously are comfortable paying it if they’re discussing trades.
