Rumor Has It…

On the day the Cavs announced that Kevin Love would miss six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, LeBron and Company marched into Minny and pulled out a 116-108 win against Andrew Wiggins (41 points, zero turnovers) and the Timberwolves. Wiggins always brings his A-game against the team that traded him away after picking him first overall in 2014, and James always seems determined to remind the young Canadian small forward who his daddy is. Impressive performance by the King of Cleveland, who dropped 14 dimes in addition to his 25 points, including the no-look pass through Wiggy’s legs above…

ORLANDO TRADES IBAKA TO THE RAPTORS FOR FIRST-ROUND PICK, TERRENCE ROSS, AND A TON OF REGRET

Orlando general manager Rob Hennigan traded Tobias Harris to the Pistons last season for Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova. Jennings left in free agency and hasn’t been terrible on a terrible Knicks team, and the Magic packaged Ilyasova, former franchise cornerstone Victor Oladipo, and a lottery pick to the Thunder for Serge Ibaka. The trade didn’t make sense for the Magic then, and now it looks downright harebrained after Hennigan and his henchmen flipped Ibaka to Toronto for Terrence Ross and a first-round pick that will likely fall in the mid-20s. In other words, the Magic have turned Harris, Oladipo, Ilyasova, Jennings and a lottery pick into Terrence Ross and the ~26th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. We didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but that’s some terrible general managing right there, Rob. Ibaka isn’t as explosive as he was five years ago, but he should mesh really well with the Raps, who had to make a strong deadline move. As for Orlando, we’d rather spend ten magical hours at Harry Potter World than three hours watching the squibs in Central Florida…
