    Clippers aren’t getting AD

    Any reasoning behind that?

    Their isn’t a team on AD’s list that is capable of putting together a trade package that’s really worth AD. The only team that maybe could is Boston, but they aren’t even on his list. Once Boston loses in the 1st round and Kyrie makes it known he’s bolting I’m guessing Ainge will come to his senses and not mortgage everything to get AD. So it’s anybody’s guess where he ends up and LAC has just a good a chance as anybody.

    I just don’t like how Ibaka profiles vs a lot of people on this slate— what am I seeing wrong here, because both projections and humans alike seem to love him?

    Pace up game probably favors him over Gasol. I’m seeing him pop in my models as well and had the initial reaction as you.

    Are you implying you think it’s more a Gasol game? Or just that even if Ibaka gets 25-30 minutes you don’t think he’s worth 5.4K on DK against NO versus what else is on this slate?

    I think he’s going to do fine, I just don’t see toronto needing to extend anyone too hard most of the time. Like obviously the pels can keep it competitive, but I dunno.. doesn’t strike me as a great game environment to prioritize the raptors.

    The second part. Not sure about him vs gasol, either, which adds to my conundrum. But Ibaka does seem better suited vs AD/Randle.

  • monarch

    My guess is Gasol over Ibaka. They can dictate pace with Marc in there. He is not a defensive liability at all vs these Pelicans.

    Wow 9 games tonight some very intresting games also!

    I agree. If they do achieve that feat it will be quite impressive out of Ballmer and the front office to stay in a playoff race, keep their fans happy and still land max contract guy or guys.

    I do know that the Mavs are tanking to keep their pick. I do know that these rich billionaire owners do not like giving capital away, especially to another owner they are in competition with for a franchise altering asset.

    Or I could be off completely and they think they can win the title. I just dont think really smart executives think that way.

    The Mavs are tanking in hopes of keeping their pick, basically just better odds as its top 5 protected and they aren’t going to end at 5th worst as all those teams are tanking.

    If I owned LAC, I’d push for a run personally as it will likely be some time before they make it again.

    Ibaka is 5400. If the game gets out of hand he’ll still play 24 to 25. Could hit 40fps in that time. Not likely though…he’s a fine play..imo…not a must have yet,(changes if raptors rest someone).

    Dont think they really have the assets that’s going to move the needle in their favor. What do you think they could offer to get the pelicans to bite?

  • mbunner23

    Center definitely looks like the deepest position on DK.

    It’s guard, and it’s not even close, IMO.

    Is in my player pool right now but can’t decide what I want to do with him. I feel like him and gasol have more of an equal min split than last game and he did have 5 blocks last game and only took 7 shots. I think I’m just gonna give him the X and not mess with it

    Especially with plays like Harrell, Portis, Draymond and Zeller all in much better spots/games.

    IMO guard is pretty cut and dry. Centers is a lot more difficult with a lot of good plays.

  • Briancobb33

    Who on the clippers can guard PG? I’m trying hard not to put him in every lineup. Gallinari definitely can’t and they run 3 small guards in the backcourt.
