    Lets get them down now:

    KD: He will stay with the pussies from GS. I understand him wanting to have his own team, but he's the best player on a team that will win this year (even without him) and will win again next year. I'm sure he has an ego, but no chance he's gonna leave and go to a shit show in NY and try to start over. He has already proven he wants the rings above all else. He will stay where he has the best shot at winning more.

    Kawhi: Also staying put. He has 50 million reasons to stay in Toronto. He also doesn't seem to be someone who wants the limelight. He can live a little more low key if he stays put. I know he has said he wants to be back in Cali, but 50 mill is a ton and he already left money on the table once. Toronto will get to keep him and Drake can keep jacking him off for the next few seasons.

    Butler: This one is a little tougher, but I also think he stays. He could move on, but I think Philly will try to make him a priority and sell him on the young talent. Too bad Joel will never stay healthy and he won't win a title.

    Kyrie: Probably goes to Knicks and the Knicks still suck. He will get his points and they will miss the playoffs.

    AD isn't getting traded either. Sorry Lakers and NBA fans. Even with Zion, they still won't be relevant.

    Bottom line. Next season will look much like this season.

    Kawhi and AD to the Lakers.

    I don’t watch much basketball so I really have no idea.

    KD- Knicks
    Kyrie- Lakers
    Paul George- Clippers
    Kawhi- Most likely staying put, although I can see him either on the Clippers or Knicks
    Kemba Walker- Knicks (if they don't get Kawhi)
    Klay- GSW
    Boogie- Lakers
    AD- Boston (via trade)
    Jimmy Butler- Nets/Lakers
    Tobias Harris- Philly
    DLO- Nets

    I like this scenario much better than mine. Hope you’re right.

    I forgot to mention Klay. He’s definitely staying. I would bet more on that than any other player.

    Yeah there are no guarantees, KD leaving GSW is definitely going to happen (lots of reported infighting there, plus he wants to lead his own team for his own legacy.. he deserves it)... However, as die hard a Knicks fan as I am, I'm not saying that he's 100% coming to us (even though all the NBA "insiders" say he is)... I'm like 65-70% positive, however I'm not ruling out him going to the Clippers (although, him sharing a city with LeBron goes against what his people said he wants), or even the Nets (though that one seems less likely).

    Kyrie to the Lakers is more likely to me than the Knicks at this point..... And honestly, I don't think he's a good fit for the Knicks (if we got him, it wouldn't be a bad thing, I just think there are better fits).

    Kawhi to Clippers is most likely if he leaves Toronto, although I can see him coming to the Knicks is we sign KD.... But with this playoff run in Toronto, he may just stay put with Lowry and give it another go.

    Paul George to the Clippers has been rumored for a while now, Boogie to the Lakers has low key been a rumor too. If the Knicks get KD and miss out on Kyrie and Kawhi, Kemba is their next target according to insiders, and it's been said that he wants to go there (I do think he's a better personnel fit too).

    Klay ain't leaving GSW, and if for some reason he does, he'll probably end up on the Lakers.

    Philly has a lot of young talent with Butler and Harris.... Harris won't go anywhere, Butler though can either re-sign, or take that Nets money, or be a name to go to the Lakers to appease LeBron if he strikes out with Kyrie and Kawhi (he's going to strike out there).... A LeBron, Kyrie, Butler, Boogie Cousins team would be a 4-5 seed in the West (GSW without KD, Houston, Portland, and maybe the Clippers if they land George and Kawhi would be better.... The Nuggets, Mavs with KP, and Spurs are right after them).

    All and all, I'm looking forward to this off-season

    KD will leave if GS wins title

    KD will stay in GS if GS loses in the finals

    others, IDK IDC, I've always been GS fan even when they used to suck dick, when we had Adonal Foyle as our center, great line up of Dunleavy and T Murphy and that was for about 13 years straight no playoffs so I'm not even sorry if GS wins another 5 straight NBA titles, sign another super star, or break all kinds of NBA record, all yous hating on GS needs to feel my pain of no playoffs for 13 seasons!!!

    Clippers, Timberwolves, and Kings fans, you guys are cool~

    Knicks will get no one of significance and continue to suck for at least 20 more years

    I agree that KD is staying put. He likes it in GS and he and the team have a lot of chemistry.

    Not so sure about Kawhi though. Toronto is a shithole.

    I don't think there is anyway Leonard goes to the Knicks, I don't think he wants that circus and media attention.
    I think he goes Clippers or stays in Toronto.
    The Knicks will re-arrange the furniture on the Titanic again.

    KD and Draymond have been publicly and privately feuding all year, on top of that KD has gone on record saying that he wants to play for his legacy now (the Warriors are Steph's team, even though KD is the superior player). I know that there's the whole "KD to the Knicks" theory floating around, and again, according to numerous insider reports (not the Stephan A. Smith's or bullshit Chris Broussard) KD is heavily favoring the Knicks (DeAndre Jordan, who is a UFA and deserving of a big contract, has already given indication that he'll re-sign with the Knicks to play with his good friend KD... And we've seen how these backdoor deals work in the NBA).

    I agree with @Sex Chicken@Sex Chicken that Kawhi doesn't want that NY media, especially if he was the primary or sole name on the team, however if KD signed first, I could see him wanting to play with him in NY (Although for the record, I do feel that Kawhi will end up on the Clippers, followed by re-signing with the Raptors, then possibly the Knicks).

    KD and Draymond get along very well. They have their disagreements like all teammates do but they have gone on record repeatedly praising the other.

    And KD doesn't give a fuck about whose team the media says it is. He cares about winning and he's been winning a lot in GS.

    I predict alot of really tall college dropouts will make alot of money for traveling from town to town throwing a ball in a hoop like a less entertaining carnival that ends with tax payers owing money to a billionaire so he can rule over a big building and sell the name to it.[​IMG]

    The only good thing about the Nets getting 3 big stars is that the team is no longer based in New Jersey.

    So the Knicks are going to get Julius Randle, and possibly Quinn Cook? They're going to need a hell of a lot more than that.

    Jesus. This hurts the Knicks badly. They will now be second fiddle in there own city. There is going to be a younger generation of New Yorkers growing up Nets fans. It’s just going to be a sea of sad old men like @Rhino@Rhino in faded John Starks jerseys.
