Re: This seems to happen with every new student housing complex

With the supply chain problems the COVID shutdown caused, I bet a lot of construction projects are behind schedule. True, but the company of this project has known for over a year about the type of problems that would result from the COVID shutdowns and figured out how to work around them, and had ...

Re: Kings sign Queta to a two-way contract

Re: Sam traded

His deal gets guaranteed on the 8th. I'm afraid they will cut him to save a million bucks. :cry: NBA is a business. If this happens, does he get picked up somewhere else or head to Europe? Sam would likely have options. At worst he would get offered a two-way contract with an NBA team. Europe would...

How about the Jazz offer Lonzo 25mil per year instead?

Actually.. I think that because they're over the cap they can only offer the mid level exception to players who weren't on the jazz last year.

Too bad. Lonzo would be better

Hmm, so we might get a forfeit win vs a team that would otherwise beat us (most of the teams on our schedule) - seems like a good way to win the over bet for season wins.
