    Oddshark has the Raps tied as favorites to land Kawhi.

    I don't see it. I don't see the Spurs having interest in Demar. Or maybe Pop can get more out of him. Who knows. I'd love to get Kawhi without moving out any of Lowry, Derozan or Val.

    Lowry
    DD
    Kawhi
    Ibaka
    Val

    Could compete with any team in the east imo.

    If kawhi is making it clear he's only signing in LA in the offseason and is going to be a rental for anyone other than LA, and if LA is cool waiting a year, the price wont be as high for whoever rents him.

    Yeah, this is what I came to say. 1 yr of Kahwi isn't overly valuable. SAS is going to be lucky to get more than 1 decent young rotation piece for that.

    And i can see the Raps trying to pull off an OKC with George scenario.

    Give Kawahi a year in the easier East, go on a run and make him love it and stay.

    If not the cost of 1 year ( maybe a Siakam or Wright, (no OG)) and a couple picks is worth it.

    Stein:

    The Raptors, I'm told, held exploratory discussions in the summer of 2017 with Minnesota on a deal that would have been headlined by DeRozan and the Timberwolves' Canadian swingman Andrew Wiggins.

    I am open to any deal: DeRozan/Lowry is not a winning formula

    It won't really matter if they give one of them up in exchange for him.

    They need to add him without giving up one of the other guys in order for this to make any difference against the West, which it still wouldn't anyway.

    Not sure how anyone competes in the videogame league, unless there's some injury obstacles faced by the top dogs.

    This is the key if your going for a title now you need to add Him while keeping DD, Lowry and Val. Ibaka you could move.

    If they dont get Kawhi, what would you guys think of offering Ibaka plus to get Love from Cleveland. I believe he would fit MUCH better than Serge

    Windhorst from ESPN says the Raps have made a compelling offer for Leonard.
    "I divide the world into learners and non-learners. There are people who learn, who are open to what happens around them, who listen, who hear the lessons. When they do something stupid, they don't do it again. And when they do something that works a little bit, they do it even better and harder the next time. The question to ask is not whether you are a success or a failure, but whether you are a learner or a non-learner." - Benjamin Barber

    I'm a big Kevin Love fan. Lebron shitting on him at every opportunity and Lue playing him out of position (especially on the defensive end) has seriously ****ed with his reputation as a ball player. When dude is able to play a legit inside-out game with a mix of back to the basket work inside and spot up 3's outside, he's a legit weapon. Defensively he's miscast trying to defend 5's and gets shit on it for some reason.

    I'm going to hate this, I can see it. They're going to fire OG, and 1sts, and stuff out to take one shot at it with Kahwi. He's waited and waited to add an impact body for so long, and he finally chooses to go after one and it's the wrong one to go after.

    Well, if he can do it without giving up Demar, **** it, let's see if we can give the Celtics or Sixers a run in the ECF and then maybe make the Warriors actually try for more than 5 games.

    Would be fun. I’d be stoked to get legitimately interested in an NBA season again, even if the likelihood is slim to win it all.

    Slim is still infinitely more interesting than nonexistent.

    I really really dont want to fire OG out of a cannon but I think Id be more ok with it if Kahwi came with an extension. Also think Pascal is making good strides forward as a player so Id be pissed about giving him up as well.

    I can see Delon being a piece that would be offered to SA. I just hate seeing any of our young guys go. I think you could grab love for less and he would make a huge impact as well. Not as big of an impact as Kawhi but depending what you need to give up who knows it may work better.

    I do not like this one bit. The guy is going to bolt after this year anyways and probably going to pout the entire year.

    Demar as the centerpiece for Kawhi is brilliant, imo.

    Be told one thing & the outcome another, DeRozan said in an Instagram story posted in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Cant trust em. Aint no loyalty in this game. Sell you out quickly for a little bit of nothing.
    Some GMs get you to the playoffs and some GMs get you through the playoffs.
