That would be nothing more than a guess, which imo, is far from him reporting that they are " seriously considering" it. 

How many times have 2 or 3 superstar players who share the same agent, signed with the same team? 

I don't disagree - it's merely speculation that gives Simmons something to write about and the type of stuff that seems to fuel too many sports writers these days.  In the end it works because you've got people on here and people out in the real world talking about it.

It's all a circus ran by Lebron James.

So it was Lebron that orchestrated Durant signing with Golden State? 

Well, that wasn't very smart of him.

I have been really impressed with his ability to get boards... and steals too.

To be fair, and this needs to stop, he's getting his steals off his own turnovers in transition.

Have to remember that he is a year younger in college experience than Magic was.

Lonzo has the same one year than Russell had in college.   The difference is of course in their styles of play.

Lonzo's passing will be much more attractive to FAs, and more chances of team success, than Russell's shoot first game.

Let them grow as a team this season, then add George and if possible one other premium FA.

I am then hopeful of them seeing the 2019 post-season.

lonzo is going to be his own dude even though people will compare him to others. I got back into basketball last year and really look forward to this season to see who or if they take the next step. it's la and they will have cap space (especially if they can get rid of dengs contract), but no one will want to play here if they suck and it's a "rebuilding" time still after a few years of trying to do so. team should compete if they stay healthy.

Guy is actually pretty good. Only 24, 35% from 3 point land, and plays defense. Idk what Detroit was thinking. 

 

If he's making more than mike Trout, that tells you how wacky the salary scale is in the NBA.

Can't sleep so I watched sports center for a bit. They had a graphic showing what shoes Ball has worn for each game.

I'm not kidding.

It's only Summer League, but it helps to begin to put the mindset to win in the minds of the youngsters.

Kuzma will be intriguing to watch as the season progresses later on.  Seems to have a well balanced sneaky smooth game and solid motor.

Pacers file a tampering complaint against the Lakers over PG.

Valid?  Or Sour Grapes over needing to trade PG?

Uhh, Pacifier Pacers, Victor Oladipo is an AS caliber player.  It's not like you traded PG for gumballs!
