Trade Buddy Heild

Trade Marvin Bagley

Keep Holmes

Keep Harrison Barnes

Select Scotty Barnes in the draft at #6

Try to sign one of John Collins, Lauri Markkanen, Lonzo Ball, PJ Tucker, Blake Griffen,

2021/2022 Dudes we know for sure roster:

PG: Fox, Guy, Ramsey
SG: Burt, James
SF: Daquan Jeffries
PF: Harrison Barnes, Woodard,
C: Holmes, Metu

Insert a top 8 draft pick, one of those mid level free agents above with some veteran bench depth and I think we have a playoff contending team. And that doesn’t include any of the return assets from the Buddy and Bagley trades.

Still not even close to a playoff team. Looks like 30-35 wins to me.
Jeffries? Starting at SF. I don’t mean to be disrespectful, But LOL!

Who are they better than in the West next year?

The Dubs are still better with: Klay, Curry, Dray and Wiseman
The Wolves will be better with: Dlo, Edwards, KAT and a Top 5 pick
Memphis will be healthy and still better than the Kings

Dallas, Clips, Lakers, Spurs, Denver, Suns, and Jazz will all be in the playoffs again.

That’s not taking into account most good free agents and good trades will take place with the aforementioned teams.

The Kings are at best a 10 seed with that lineup. Definitely not a playoff contender.

Wolves lose pick to duds unless top 3- so top 5 is not possible if 4 or 5 , duds get it.

Marvin and Corey Joseph

for

Obi Toppin, Ntillikina, Burks

Toppin is struggling big time in NYC. He only gets 4.5 mil a year for 3 more years and we would have bird rights. Ntillikina and Burks are expiring contracts. Bagley is not a fit here. To me this is a gamble trade for both teams. Change of scenery for both players in a system that is more suited for them could rescue both their careers? Bagley and Toppin are very similar players.

From the Kings perspective it gives them a cheaper Marvin for more years. who, could also be better than Marvin 1 year from now.

From the Knicks perspective they are taking a gamble on a #2 overall pick that would fit next to Randle (maybe better) in exchange for a player that has been extremely disappointing thus far. They also need PG depth right now if they hope to make a playoff run. Joseph would fill that hole for them this year and next for super cheap.

Would you guys rather have Marvin or Obi?

It’s kindof a nothing move because they are such similar players but I like what it does for our cap sheet over the next 4 years and a change of scenery is needed for both these young big men in my opinion.

If that’s the deal, I stick with Marvin.

Fine, approved. I approve any trade that sends Pervis packing.

Literally – any trade.

I’m a high school counselor and am ready for your phone call Jerry! I get a lot of college coaches that call but never an NBA GM. I need to work at a different school.

This is why I fear the Kings won’t be able to keep Holmes. He’s about to be paid and the Kings won’t be able to afford him. If Allen is getting $100M, what is Holmes gonna cost? I think McNair really has to look at cashing out on Holmes via trade and hope to re-sign him in free agency.

Damn. Thats way too steep if thats the cost to keep Holmes. And I love Holmes

This is what Monte got hired for. What is Holmes market value? Act accordingly. If its 5 years 100 million then trade him NOW and get a return. if it’s 5 for 75 then keep him.

We should be able to trust our GM knows what it will cost to keep Holmes. He should already have an answer. If he doesn’t than we are F#%@ed.

It’s really that simple (in my eyes)
