    Memphis is trading guard Grayson Allen to Milwaukee for Sam Merrill and two future second-round picks, sources tell ESPN.

    Nice get. Upgrade from Forbes. Not sure what Merrill’s ceiling was or anything though.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is offering accomodation in (at least) 87 hotel rooms, for two and three nights, to people affected by the wildfires in Greece.

    Merrill is a good shooter but too small really to be in an NBA rotation. His non guaranteed salary would have been guaranteed tomorrow I believe. Grayson Makes 4.1 – Merrill 1.4 or something like that. Shocked Bucks are adding salary. Grayson is a restricted free agent after the season. Tells me that Donte probably won’t be ready to play for a long time.

    Milwaukee ownership is showing that they are willing to make a financial commitment with this roster.

    Luxury tax penalty will increase from $36M to $44M with this trade.

    Milwaukee is right at $200M in salary and luxury tax. twitter.com/bobbymarks42/s…

    This either means a salary dump is coming, or they just didn’t want to spend the money on PJ Tucker.

    I’m guessing Bane, Melton, Murphy, Brooks. Even Bledsoe in the mix. You’d think maybe they could get a little more for him though?

    I saw some rumor somewhere that they were interested in Diallo, but still don’t think Pistons would let him walk. That is, unless they worked something out trade wise.

    IF they got Diallo though, then they really wouldn’t need Grayson.

    What about Svi – OKC pulled the qualifying offer the other day.

    Surprised they did. Not sure. Someone will sign him.

    I don’t know. He’s been really inconsistent. He had a really strong stretch with the Pistons, then really struggled last year. Then had a mini-resurgence with the Thunder, but if I recall faded off. He’s got some game, but his 3-pt shot hasn’t been what it should be. Probably deserves to be on an NBA roster somewhere, even if not in the rotation.

    I thought they pulled it because he had a deal lined up somewhere else and OKC was being nice and just letting him go. Maybe overseas or something.

    Congrats, Team USA! Well done.

    I wonder if the Jazz play Paschall at small ball five when Gobert sits? Seems like a smart pickup for them on the second unit that is too reliant on Jordan Clarkson to generate his shot.

  • tmarohl

    NBA is opening investigations into the Lowry and Ball sign and trades. I hope they reverse those and fine them and lose picks, just like Riley did to the Bucks last year :)

    The NBA set really bad precedent last year by doing that.

    Everyone knows this stuff goes down. Everyone.

    Everyone knew Lowry to Miami was happening before FA started, even who was going to TOR.

    Everyone knew Ball was signing with CHI, before FA started.

    Those deals were basically announced as official before 6:05 PM EST. So, Chicago supposedly spent 5 minutes, wooing Ball, and negotiating a contact with him, and then getting it out to media sources.

    Even like the Pistons, spent a whole 15-20 minutes meeting with Olynyk and convincing him to come here, while getting a contract negotiated.

    Come on.

    He’s too old for OKC. He’s what, 24?

    Is anyone else playing Summer League on DK tomorrow?
    If so, I can start a thread, unless Panda wants to.

    Never mind, I see PaperStacking has already started one.

    Free agent G Chris Chiozza has agreed to a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, source tells ESPN. There’s some opportunity for backup point guard minutes on Warriors roster.
