Yes, Magic finally gives the shout out to Jules after Rob didn't mention him earlier in the young core...

I think his recent play and this move may have had them reconsider his role on this team going forward. LNJ trade signals Jules "won" that position battle for the future?

Magic said he wants Zo to learn from IT - lmao!!! Dude I hope you're just being politically correct.

On the other hand,

great to hear Magic give Julius that kinda shot-out.

Magic basically saying in a roundabout way that they couldn’t trade Deng.

I couldn't hear the question, but it sounds like Magic said the 2 max plan for this summer is still on, contrary to reports that it has shifted to 2019.

He said they have the option to get 2 big names this off season or just 1 big name this offseason and one in 2019.

Basically, I think they're confident about PG at the very least this off season.

Magic saying Ball is our starting PG and nothing has changed on that regard, mentioned also IT providing that scoring punch Clarkson had.

Then Pelinka says they can play together, and that it is about the minutes you end up playing, not if you start or not.

So,there it is...

It was more of a "we can do a bunch of things now. Absorb bad deals for draft picks. Get one max in 2018, one in 2019. Get two in 2018 or two in 2019".

Not that it surprises us one bit, but all the talk was about the future and not IT and Frye. So it’s obvious they’re gone after we get booted from the playoffs.

Sounds like they are going to sell IT on the more minutes from bench is better than starting with less minutes.

I hope we don't just go after 2 Max players because that is going to get us in a mess again. Its about going after the right combo of Max players.

Just keep Lebron away from this team. That old fart only has 1-2 good years left before a HEAVY decline. He'll want a long contract since it will most likely be his last and if we sign him, we'll handicap the franchise for a nother 5 years. Hopefully we can still snag PG tho.

Julius has impressed them this year... heard they like Randle going forward and now we may have a path to getting 2 max guys + keeping JR

And so then NBA TV cut it off to go back to the talking heads. But Seku Smith just brought up the point that they talked a lot about flexibility and they did not mention Isaiah once. Presumably they eventually will ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

This is an interesting trade.


Well, it goes without saying that as we are all about leadership, that we'd acquire Isaiah Thomas =)

If it's the quote I think you're talking about, he was talking about how Deng has been a solid professional under tough circumstances. Not sure who he meant but I was thinking of the Knicks when he said that. The Noah situation is similar to Deng's, team sitting him largely because they want off his money, but it got ugly. He's been sent home.

Regarding the Magic Giannis fine. Is there a different set of rules for players vs front office people? Because you hear players compliment opposing players all the time. Carlise once complimented Randle by saying once Julius figures it out, he's going to be a problem. Was that tampering? Where do you draw the line?

Ah, I was half listening to the press conference and half doing work at the time .

Most franchises use their young players as trade bait to acquire all star players think Kevin Love, Jimmy Butler, Paul George...Lakers use their to acquire cap space
