I wanted that a few seasons ago. Not so sure of it now. Would depend on what we would have to give up. I just think we need a solid big man. Not really an All-Star but someone solid like say a Robin Lopez. He would be perfect, wouldn't have to give much up, he isn't really a scorer, just a big body to protect the rim, that's what we need. I really don't want to give up the pick. I think we need to save it for next year whether LeBron leaves or not. If he leaves, get a nice lottery pick. If he stays, back to the market and use it as our trading chip.

Memphis in general should just blow it up. Randolph and Allen are gone. Chandler Parsons has not worked out, he just turned into mr. glass since his arrival. They had a nice 5-6 year run as legit contenders, even making the WCF's one year and beating the Spurs in the first round another. It would really be hard to move Mike Conley though.

He's signed through the 2018-19 season and then has a player option the following season. Then he's a UFA.

Give up a lot for only a year and half guaranteed he'll be in Cleveland, plus turning 33 in January.

No Thanks.

No because Marc Gasol is way too good to be a plausible scapegoat.

Cleveland needs a mobile big man who's decent defensively and will contest shots. They don't need more offense they need a rim protector.

I'm fascinated by what Cleveland does because they suck at developing players which speaks front office. Even in Miami in win now they were able to develop players.

LUE is like doc rivers. They aren't good at managing development and winning at same time.

If your Memphis and Cleveland offers you that Brooklyn pick you have to take it. I think the writing is on the wall for Memphis as this will be the best they'll ever be. Signing Parsons was one of the biggest mistakes they've ever made and sealed their fate for the next few years. Unfortunately for Memphis they are stuck with some long contracts in Conley and Parsons so they can't really rebuild. Maybe Memphis should look for a scorer? Someone like Paul George would have been great on this team.

If your Cleveland I don't think you should pull that trade either. Like someone else said you have to see if Lebron is going to stay. Second, if that pick becomes top 3 its going to have some crazy value. Who knows maybe they'll be able to get Anthony Davis in the offseason or some other superstar who wants to leave.

This is true but I also think alot of the fault is with Lebron. He has such a dominant personality on how things are handled personnel and coaching wise that the coaching staff can't implement their strategies. Lebron isn't going to have a coach that clashes heads with him and a coach that works the players as Lebron will have that coach removed. As a result, you have this team that coasts half the season as they know they'll still be in the ECF regardless and leads to a team that has some major defects once they play elite teams like the Warriors as they never developed as a team in the regular season.

In Miami, they had the dominant personality of Pat Riley who was able to control Lebron. He also was a savy basketball mind that could find role players to help the team like birdman.

One of the best centers in the league for a draft pick while you have a top 10 pg still on ur roster with great role players and a top defense in the league.

Lol, stop.

LeBron doesn't like Pat Riley. He doesn't like Phil Jackson. He likes Tyronn Lue.
