That's pretty alluring for a guy who is all about putting in the work to win. There will be no major threat in the west, in my view, and each of the other top four teams in the east last year have significant free agency and other issues that will potentially weaken all of them with the exception of the Raptors if Leonard stays. I'm guessing he signs a two year deal worth upwards of $90 million with a player opt out option in year two in case the Raptors don't repeat and he wants to then go home. He's still young and still could command a serious free agency contract if he plays another year in Toronto. Other benefit to the Raptors is they can offer him $190+ million over 5 years and that sets up him and his young family for life anywhere he wants to spend the rest of it. He had a front row seat watching Thompson and Durant jeopardize their free agency value suffering serious injuries. You can always travel home but you don't have to work there. Working is miserable if the situation doesn't make you happy and by all accounts he had a great time in Toronto. Would he have a similar outcome with the Clippers?
    I'd stay in T-town. But, then again, I like Toronto way better than LA. I can at least walk the streets at night in Toronto.

    A fair look at Kyrie?

    Blame Kyrie? It's not that simple, Boston

    The next 3-10 days are going to be crazy. I'm hoping my Pacers land Rubio and keep Bogdanović. With a healthy Oladipo back, they would be a much improved team.

    My buddy here at work is from IU; big fan of all things Indiana. He said Victor may be out most of next year.

    Purdue basketball scores, news, schedule, players, stats, photos, rumors, depth charts on RealGM.com.

    And in addition there was Rick Mount, maybe the greatest shooter of all time, who played his pro ball in the ABA.

    Glenn Robinson had a sub-par career. Joe Barry Carroll had some success. Rick Mount, E'Twuan Moore and some guy named John Wooden.

    Purdue has never had Kentucky or Duke level talent but they've had a couple of great coaches who did really well with subpar players.

    My predictions:

    Irving to the Nets
    KD and Kawhi to the Clippers
    Klay stays in GS
    Butler to Miami
    Cousins to the Nets
