Any word if the blazers will match? I know they love the kid, and this isn't crazy for his production. He would atleast help the nets to a few wins.

4.) Josh Jackson                          move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

Any chance both Tyler Johnson and Allen Crabbe end up on the Nets? That would be great to see $145 million wrapped up between those two guys.

I hope so.  Lol guaranteed lottery picks next 2 years if they continue tying up money like this.

That's not crazy money for 10 ppg of production, with little contribution other than 3-point shooting?

I suspect with Wade leaving Miami they will match on TJ.  Have no idea how Portland feels about Crabbe.

I hope Miami does match on TJ, he's a good, young, up and coming player.

I'd much rather they don't get them, because their alternatives will be to either not spend money at all this year, or spend it on even worse players.

This guy gets it lol. Any its not like their contracts would be horrendous. They would just represent a few more wins. If they can be robbed of even that, then watch out. Nobody is left, so lets hope they get matched.

Tyler Johnson is a poison pill contract.  I'm not sure Miami will pick that up, would really crush them in year 3 and 4 of the contract. 

I still think the Nets will be a 30-35 win team.

Nets signed Allen Crabbe from Portland to a 4 year, $75 million offer sheet. I know nothing about Allen Crabbe and I'm curious to hear what people think about this.

he is a good player...weird how no one else wanted picked him up..

Teams did for sure. Just not at that price. He won't be playing off Lillard and McCollum either.

That's my feeling. Worst case scenario for them (and best case for us) is that they can't sign anyone who can contribute anything and end up grossing the rest of the team to the minimum.

I'm not concerned about the Nets making the playoffs, but I am concerned that they pick up just enough middling players not to finish with the worst record in the NBA.

Really good news today for the Nets pick swap next year:

Blazers match Crabbe's offer sheet from Nets

https://twitter.com/WojVerticalNBA/status/752248250896297984?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Nets lose Ellington to Heat

http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/242789/Wayne-Ellington-Heat-Agree-Upon-Two-Year-$12M-Deal

Looks like Miami WILL match Johnson's offer sheet from Nets

https://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/status/752216084229480448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw


So, a Brooklyn team that was not a very good shooting team just lost a TON of shooting in Crabbe and Ellington, and it looks like they're not going to get Johnson, too. Can't ask for much better than that.

Yeah, that's what I figured, too. He could actually come in and fill some of the void of Young, though spacing and a lack of athleticism will surely hurt that frontcourt. Teams will just go small against them, and they won't be able to play both Lopez and Sully.

It seems scary in the abstract for Sullinger to go there (in that they might win a few extra games), but really, he couldn't motivate himself in a contract year on a playoff team with a great coaching staff.  What do you think he is going to do on the Nets?

Sully and the amazing NYC food like pizza and street dogs  should do wonders for his waistline! I could definitely see the Nets taking a chance on him. I just hope they dont sign him and put him under strict food surveilance and than he starts putting up 20-10 nights regularly. He is talented but frustrating. I dont wish him ill will for any team but the Nets.
