Market is very dry now, these are some of the biggest names left (taken from https://sports.yahoo.com/whos-left-n...181452827.html). Using their grouping:

Ball Handlers:
Jeremy Lin, Trey Burke, Shaun Livingston, Jerryd Bayless; Jamal Crawford; Raymond Felton; Jerian Grant; Devin Harris; Shelvin Mack; Chasson Randle

(S)WINGMEN:
JR Smith, Iman Shumpert, Thabo Sefolosha, Carmelo Anthony; Vince Carter; Jonas Jerebko; Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot; Wayne Selden; Jonathon Simmons; Sindarius Thornwell

Big Men
Joakim Noah, Kenneth Faried, Nene Hilario; Dwight Howard; Damion Lee; Jon Leuer; Greg Monroe; Zaza Pachulia; Lance Thomas


Anything there that could be worth the last open spot in our roster?

I wonder how soon the schedule for 2019-2020 season will come out.
I am really excited to see how our team will do. I like our depth.

Got the below from reddit/nba and I'm looking forward to all this...
r/nba Posted byKnicksu/YoungLink_NJ

I actually think every NBA team is looking good right now.
Hawks - They've got an exciting young duo of Trae Young and John Collins, plus they have Huerter, and now Hunter and Reddish. Will be a serious contender soon.

Celtics - Obviously good, Kemba Jaylen Tatum Smart Tacko etc

Nets - Made playoffs last year and added Kyrie/KD

Bulls - Satoransky, LaVine, Porter Jr, Markkkanen, Carter Jr, and Coby White. Fun team.

Cavs - Sexton and Garland (Sexland) are an underrated young duo. They can also trade Love for an interesting package.

Mavs - Luka and KP are not an underrated young duo cause people know they're good.

Pistons - Made the playoffs last year, Blake was All NBA. They now have D Rose, and they have two really interesting pieces in Doumbouya and Kennard. I like Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk too, he was really good for Ukraine when he was younger and still only just turned 22 last month. Drummond led the NBA in rebounds 3 out of the last 4 years (I don't even really like Drummond tho).

Nuggets - The 2 seed as a young team running it back + Grant. Jokic and Murray are gonna be stars for years in Denver. MPJ and Bol Bol are also the 2 biggest young gambles in the NBA on the same team right now and if they both work out that would be a great addition to an already great team.

Warriors - Won 3 out of 5 really could've been 5 out of 5

Rockets - They have James Harden and Russell Westbrook.

Pacers - Turner, Oladipo (when healthy), Brogdon, Lamb, Sabonis, I like the Pacers a lot.

Clippers - Playoff team added Kawhi and Paul George.

Lakers - LeBron is on this team, and they have Anthony Davis too.

Grizzlies - JJJ and Ja are another super underrated young duo. Great players for Memphis to develop together.

Heat - They have Jimmy Butler and they're a playoff contender. Looks like they want to pair him with someone too.

Bucks - Have Giannis and many pieces

Timberwolves - They have KAT obviously, Wiggins who has a lot to prove this year. Culver is gonna be fun to watch too.

Pelicans - Well, they have Zion... but they have Holiday, Lonzo, Ingram, Favors, Redick, NAW, and Jaxson Hayes too.

Knicks - RJ is promising and Mitchell Robinson is a future DPOY candidate. Julius Randle is good too.

Thunder - They have a fucking lot of draft picks coming up. And they have Shai who could be a huge part of this rebuild. For now though, they still have CP3, Adams, and Gallinari. That's not that bad.

Magic - Made the playoffs last year. Vucevic was an all star, and Gordon and Isaac are both really good. Bamba could still develop into a beast and I have actually some faith left in Fultz.

Sixers - Maybe the best starting 5 in the NBA, maybe the best young duo, maybe the best front court. Shoutout Zhaire Smith

Suns - Booker and Ayton actually might be the best young duo too. Nobody talked about Ayton last year cause the Suns were terrible, but he had a fantastic year. I don't like that Rubio is their PG though. Still, Rubio/Booker/Oubre/Saric/Ayton is a better starting 5 than the Suns have had in recent years.

Trailblazers - made WCF without Nurkic. Lost some guys but not Dame or CJ, also added Whiteside.

Kings - Fox/Buddy/Bog-Mon/Bagley, will be a playoff contender with a bright looking future.

Spurs - Haven't missed the playoffs since 1997

Raptors - Won the NBA Championship, still have Siakam/Lowry/Ibaka/Gasol

Jazz - One of the most upgraded teams, they now have Conley/Mitchell/Ingles/Bojan Bogdanovic/Gobert and will definitely contend for a top seed.

Wizards - If John Wall comes back looking good and Beal is still there, that's great. If they trade either of them or both, I don't think Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant are bad guys to start with.

Gonna be a great year, both regular season and playoffs

[Wojnarowski] With free agency looming next summer, three-time All-Star Draymond Green has agreed to a four-year, $100M maximum contract extension with Golden State, agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports tells ESPN.

Free agency next year might be a snoozefest.

Cousins torn ACL...yeah he is done and wont get any big deal anymore.

Have to say, dont feel sorry for Lebron/Lakers and also not feel sorry for Cousins after i read the story about him destroying Nik Stauskas career.

Par for course...

Feb. 2018 -- Ruptured Achilles
April 2019 -- Torn left quad
August 2019 -- Torn ACL

The odds of additional leg injuries doubles after an achilles tear (often due to overcompensation) and keeps doubling with each additional injury... This is likely Kevin Durantís future as well.

Not trying to defend Demarcus here, but I donít see how Nik being bullied ruined his career. Maybe he just wasnít that good? Lots of lottery picks fizzle out of the league.

yeah that article didn't say he ruined his career. It's all I could find in terms of Stauskas-Cousins drama.

Still pretty douchey.

Sources: Lakers' Cousins has serious knee injury
Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a serious knee injury, league sources told ESPN on Thursday.

The initial fear is that Cousins has a torn ACL, but nothing is expected to be known for certain until he undergoes further tests in Los Angeles on Thursday, sources told ESPN.

Cousins, a four-time All-Star, is expected to meet with Lakers team physicians, sources said.

Cousins, 29, was working out in Las Vegas on Monday when he had to leave the court after what one source described as "bumping knees" with another player.

He suffered an Achilles tendon tear while playing for New Orleans during the 2017-18 season, and he missed several weeks with Golden State last season with a quadriceps injury.

Cousins, who has averaged 21.2 points and 10.9 rebounds over his nine NBA seasons, signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Lakers in July. He's part of a Lakers team expected to be among the NBA's elite this season.
Karma keeps on servin'.

At only $3.5MM per year, Stauskas may be outearning him by now.

[Wojnarowski] Sources: Dwight Howard surrendered nearly $2.6M of his $5.6M guaranteed salary to Memphis in buyout. He can earn $2.6M on his vet minimum deal with Lakers -- if he survives on roster past early January. Ideal outcome for Grizzlies, who never intended to bring Howard to camp.

long summer off-season filler...

Eddie Sefko@ESefko
Notable from ESPN's summer predictions re: team most likely to turn things around:

1. Lakers: 95 points (42.4% 1st-place votes)
2. Pelicans: 72 points (21.2%)
3. Clippers: 43 points (18.2%)
4. Mavericks: 33 points (6.1%)
Also, Luka Doncic the top choice to be a 1st-time all-star

This seems kind of goofy. Who is this for? Is it just fan service? Itís not like it will change anything for teams, gamblers, or dfs players.

Probably benefits the teams to have verified ages.

Seems goofier to pretend that Chris Paul is 6.3, than to acknowledge that he's 5.11.

The pretense is indeed goofy. Minnesota was not suddenly going to move Garnett to center, because they found out he was actually taller than advertised.

I feel like Zion's style of play is going to lead to an injury-plagued career.

If it gets him to stop chucking 7 or 8 three's a game it might actually make him a better player. It's hilarious to me that it's designated as his "shooting hand". I wasn't aware of him having one of those.

Maybe? He looks a lot like Barkley at age 19/20, who also came into the NBA north of 280, and south of 6.5.

But it's Williamson's weight (285? on a marginal 6.6 frame) that is going to make him prone to back and knee injuries, I think. He's 19 and already has a history of knee ailments.

Barkley was a fun-to-watch bull in a china shop too his first few years in the league, but he wasn't an MVP until he got his body into shape (240s) in Phoenix.

Maybe Williamson will be the next Barkley, or maybe he'll be the next Oliver Miller and eat himself out of the league.

Man I felt like the summer went relatively quick, but last week or so I have been starting to count days. Can't wait for the opener...

Sir Charles concurs...

he doesn't look fat to me either, but every extra pound takes its toll on knees and hips and ankles, etc.
