Chris Smith converted to Judaism to play in Israel. Hopefully he brings JR over eventually.

Trevor Booker and probably a second to Philly for Okafor. I'm down with that.

Edit: Nevermind, it's Okafor, Stauskas and a second for just Booker. Good job, Marks.

The Nets aren't far behind for the 8th seed in the playoffs. That trade is going to look SO SO SO bad if their pick falls out of the lottery.

Yeah, Noah is definitely the worst. At least Parsons isn’t rehabbing in the G League. JJ’s contract isn’t bad at all. Sixers needed to reach a certain salary level and it’s an expiring contract.

Sabonis is gonna be one of their future starters. Guy is balling out for them. If Turner doesn't take a big leap before next season's (hell, maybe even this seasons?) trade deadline, I doubt he's a Pacer beyond that.

Turner's pick and pop game is nice. He's a good shot blocker as well. Keep in mind he's been out for a good portion of this year.

Both players are nice. They just haven't played them together so it seems like a waste. McMillan was just praising Thad, saying he's not going to move him out of the starting lineup.

Bill Simmons' new 'trades that need to happen' article is a decent read. Some interesting ideas in there. PHI swapping Fultz + filler + expirings for McCollum being the most notable.

I don't get the Fultz backlash. We all knew any Sixers rookie was gonna end up being hurt. He's barely played and was not at full health. Plus, Simmons called Fultz a sure fire star throughout the whole draft progress and then his homer-ass flips as soon as Danny Ainge traded the pick.

I don't think its hate as much as it's Simmons making a good point. Look how fast OKC got thrust into title contention when they were young. Instead of keeping that group together and wedging that window open as long as possible, it fell apart. They never got back there after 2012.

Trading for McCollum is a "you're ready now" move rather than sitting and waiting to develop players. Simmons and Embiid are good now. Throw McCollum in there and they've got something serious.

I get that. At least wait like a season though. Celtics and Cavs are both much better now. Plus, the dude was the clear-cut number one guy for a reason. People forget that Fultz has an absolutely insane wingspan and would not take much for him to be a better defender than McCollum.

His counter of throwing in Saric and Fultz for McCollum is laughably bad, and I don't think Dario Naharis is even that good.

Sixers should trade for McCollum. He's good. Fultz is all out of sorts right now and who knows if he'll ever reach his potential. His shot, those free throws. What the fuck happened to this kid? Is his injury even real?

Dude has barely even played and of course his injury is real. Fultz's ceiling is much higher than McCollum's. Plus, it took Beal forever to get over injuries and start playing well. Hell, McCollum only became a starter after everyone else in Portland left.
