possibly some draft picks being moved... thoughts?
BAD TRADE! Even in 2K Association mode this wont happen. Aint no way Pierce is getting moved by the Celtics. He's been thru the thick and thin of the team, he's the greatest Celtic of this generation. Indiana also will not be moving George, they would trade Granger but not George. Its very obvious ur a Celtics fan. Boston commits highway robery with your trade. LAC will be getting Allen in expense of their bench.
Yea no way boston is moving pierce and no way Indy in moving Granger and George. This trade does work well for the Clippers but horribly for the Celts and Pacers
By 2016, the list shrinks considerably (2016 NBA Free Agents) but if the Miami trio finish out their entire contracts, it could be another banner summer. Kevin Durant is the biggest name. Deron Williams has an early termination option. Other stars include Kevin Love, Joe Johnson, Nene, David Lee, Danilo Gallinari, Roy Hibbert, Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Brook Lopez and JaVale McGee.
The new Collective Bargaining Agreement stressed shorter contracts and the 2017 list is just eight-players long (2017 NBA Free Agents). Three of the eight may hit free agency in 2016 (Deron Williams, Ersan Ilyasova and Jason Thompson) leaving Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and George Hill.
According to teamrankings.com, Miami was 19th in fastbreak efficiency (they averaged 1.578 points per fast break), which means there’s a lot of room for improvement.
The Heat averaged just 17.5 points per game on 3-pointers last season (17.9 percent of their points), which ranked 20th in the NBA. Obviously there’s a risk in trying to improve that figure. But if the HEAT can turn some of their missed opportunities on the fastbreak into open 3-pointers for Allen, then there’s no reason they can’t improve on their 104.3 offensive efficiency rating from 2011-2012.

Assuming 70 games played in 2013; if Pierce averaged 18.5 points per contest next season the future Hall of Famer could land in the No. 20 spot on the all-time scoring list. Pierce has averaged less than 18.5 points only two times in his career and is coming off a season where he scored 19.4 per game.
Nash has averaged double-digit assists in seven out of the past eight seasons and if that trend continues (10 assists per over 70 games), then the veteran will not only pass Johnson into fourth place but will also overtake current Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson for third place on the all-time list.
Whiteside tells HOOPSWORLD in this interview he has a work out with the Minnesota Timberwolves set for this week, the adjustment process to the business side of the NBA and adding forty pounds to his frame in order to face the rigors of the league.
