That Brooklyn is about to become very significant.

They can flip it for DeMarcus Cousins.

And when you have a starting 5 of...IT3/Wade/LeBron/Love/Cousins...oh man. Dangerous, dangerous.
With how weak NYK is now the Brooklyn pick is considerably less valuable. There are many teams on the same tier of terrible as Brooklyn, if not worse.

No way could they snag Cousins for just the pick. Love and the pick maybe

At the tradeline the BRK pick would be an overpay if NOP is out of the playoff race and Boogie is thinking about leaving.

You're not wrong Roy, but what other asset do they have? Will The Pelicans take something like Tristian Thompson and filler for DMC? Cleveland has no picks right?

  • Boston Celtics= Championships, nothing less.
Does Wade even move the needle for Cleveland? At this point in his career, I don't think so.

I'm curious as to the terms of the deal. Is it a one year deal or multiple years? Are the number of years any indication of LeBron's plans?

 certainly. his contract is nothing and he can be the Cavs version of Sean Livingston.
Can create his own shot, get to the line, and can be a scoring option especially vs 2nd units.

Great signing. That is a roster that can beat Cleveland in my opinion.
"We are lucky we have a very patient GM that isn't willing to settle for being good and coming close. He wants to win a championship and we have the potential to get there still with our roster and assets."

quoting 'Greg B' on RealGM after 2017 trade deadline.
Read that last line again. One more time.

They also have their own pick this year. But I could see them going for Marc Gasol, which could arguably be even more frightening, in my opinion. I think Shumpert-Frye-salaryfiller(Zizic?)-brn1st gets it done. And a Gasol-Love-James front court would be the best in the league by a mile.

Does anyone here think DMC and LeBron can coexist?   I don't.

Outside shooting and D are areas of weakness, but depth will make up for that.

If Lue splits minutes effectively to keep players fresh, you're gonna see shooters (Korver, Frye, Smith, Green, Crowder) and defenders (Shump, Smith?, Green?, Crowder) subbing in to help in game specific scenarios.

Lue has 15 guys to use like a Swiss Army knife. Crowder and Green, I believe, will be massively useful for helping LeBron on the wing, keeping him fresh.

IT, Rose, Wade can push the offense with second units, and Love remains a big #2 scoring option behind LeBron.

Calderon, Jefferson and some others may need to be cut. Pretty interesting overall if you ask me.

A lineup of IT, Wade, LeBron, Crowder, Love for example would be really interesting.  They can do a lot of cool things with that lineup and they have a lot of shooting to help Wade out.  It's an interesting roster.

Offensively that would be a lot of fun to watch. Defensively its borderline hilarious. Crowder has become overrated defensively, Love is what he is, and IT+ Wade has to be in the contention for the worst defensive back court in the NBA.
