    Will that help them get to where they want to go .. pass the first-round playoff
    I think they'll trade the pick, rumor was they wanted Jahil Okafor. Not sure why Ainge would want him but the Sixers I think would swing a deal for their 3rd pick for him.

    Philly would be haunted throughout Okafor super-star career in Boston if they made that move.
    Tiger .. i expected u to notice what Okafor presence does for a team inside the paint, Lopez n Okafor as tandem starter would have gave us a better shot at making the playoff having a poor backcourt of Calderon/Afflalo

    Im waiting to see all of Ainge moves this offseason

    I agree about Okafor, great post game and a scoring machine inside but I think Ainge should be shooting higher than a 1 yr. player with limitations despite that post game. I would take a shot at Cousins even with all his baggage, Okafor will never be the player Boogie is.

    Al Jefferson is also available if Ainge wants a low post player.

    Cousin n Okafor are worth the number 1 pick .. their dynamic low-post talent are franchise-exceptional.
    Boston has 3 first round picks and 5 second round picks, plus Ainge maybe interested in the Chicago Bulls rumor .. Trading Derrick Rose OR Jimmy Butler should be Bulls' offseason priority

    How many picks should PJ buy from Boston ???

    By Mike Lupica

    Jeff Hornacek will just be next Knicks coach to get fired if Phil Jackson can't recruit

    People don't want to hear another word about a triangle offense with which he won when he had Michael and Scottie and Kobe and Shaq and Gasol. Good grief, it sounds sometimes like he is speaking wistfully about hula hoops. Knick fans don't want to hear about truth and beauty. They want their team to win again. Jackson didn't inherit a team that was the NBA equivalent of the 1-15 Jets. No, what Jackson did was immediately turn the Knicks into the NBA equivalent of 1-15.

    Rockets finalizing deal for Mike D'Antoni as new head coach

    The Rockets are finalizing a four-year deal to make Mike D'Antoni their new head coach, sources said, and now will look to lure a defensive specialist to the staff.

    Rockets also must be hiring Patrick Ewing as assistant-coach if they plan on keeping Howard next season
    Dantoni era in NY were small-ball with no-defense

    Hard to believe MD beat out JVG for the Houston job. They interviewed everyone from Kenny Smith to Blatt and gave the job to MD, Houston fans are screaming BS on the D'Antoni hire.

    Atlanta and Philadelphia are discussing a deal centered on a Jeff Teague and Nerlens Noel package, league sources tell The Vertical.

    What happen to the NBA Bigmen .. 85% of the NBA big-men want to shoot 3 balls
    There are to much 3 ball shooting in the NBA by Big-men and less rebounding n shot blocking by Big-men

    Should fans expect (or want) the top-1 draft pick 6.10 Ben Simmons to shoot 3 ball shots?

    Nyk Logo Who got the better of the Ibaka for Oladipo trade?

    Who got the better of the Ibaka for Oladipo Trade?
    (Remember a couple weeks ago the OKC Thunder embarrassed the GS Warriors in the WCF taking a 3-1 lead in the series .. then OKC reduce the playing time of Kanter/Adams/Ibaka to play small-ball the last 3 games of the series so the NBA hype of a 73 win season team look legit.).

    The verdict was swift and cruel: The Oklahoma City Thunder had fleeced the Orlando Magic in swapping Serge Ibaka for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and the No. 11 pick in Thursday's NBA draft.

    It's hard to imagine the Thunder getting a fatter return for Ibaka as he enters the final year of his contract. The closest recent analogue is probably the Charlotte Hornets' acquisition a year ago of Nicolas Batum from the Portland Trail Blazers -- another instance of a contender with a huge pending free agent (LaMarcus Aldridge) dealing away an almost-All-Star on the verge of a massive pay raise. The Blazers knew Aldridge was fine with Batum leaving, just as the Thunder know Durant is fine with Ibaka heading elsewhere in his prime, per several league sources.

    In exchange for Batum, Charlotte coughed up Gerald Henderson and Noah Vonleh -- the latter a mid-lottery pick who barely played before arriving in Portland. The Magic gave up much, much more.

    Ibaka bristled about his lack of touches in Oklahoma City and for the past year has been sending signals he might leave in free agency, sources have told ESPN.com. Goran Dragic and his camp agitated in the same way as the Suns imploded during the final year of Dragic's deal; the Heat swooped in and nabbed the guard for two first-round picks and zero relevant players.

    Utah's George Hill might be a better player than Ibaka, and the Jazz just snagged Hill on the final year of his contract for the No. 12 pick -- and only the No. 12 pick. Ibaka is better than Markieff Morris, but he's also set to earn nearly four times more than Morris in 2018 and 2019; Washington swiped Morris from Phoenix for the No. 13 pick and two guys the Suns waived almost immediately.

    Hell, it's not even a stretch to argue the Thunder got more for Ibaka than they did for James Harden back in 2012. Steven Adams is a monster, but there was no way to know the Thunder would be able to draft a player so damn good -- and with such a delightful mustache -- with the centerpiece pick (No. 11 in 2013) in the Harden deal.

    By essentially any precedent, the Thunder got an above-market return for a plateauing, low-usage big man who will be chasing a $30 million-plus max contract a year from now. Some deal like this was inevitable. Durant and Russell Westbrook are due new super-max deals over the next two summers; Adams has developed into a max-level player; and the Thunder signed Enes Kanter at last summer's version of a max contract.

    OJ Mayo suspended by the league for drug violation. He's eligible to apply for reinstatement in 2 years.
