Yeah, once Brooklyn can start having their own picks again, the future should be pretty bright for the Nets.
Speaking of which, I would support Danny Ainge trading the 2018 Nets pick seeing as it probably won't be as low as we'd like it to be and the Celtics now have the Lakers pick if it should land between 2-5 (which is pretty likely considering what the Lakers will be up against in the stacked Western Conference).
In other news, Carmelo Anthony is now unwilling to be traded to Cleveland. Speculation is that a trade there would mean that Love or Irving would be sent to New York, and also there's a good chance that his good buddy Lebron James might have let him know that he's not sticking around after next season anyway, so not a good situation for him. Anthony will now only accept a trade to Houston, probably for Ryan Anderson.
The Lakers are in a position to have 2 max slots open after next season, so if Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram impress this year, they could be setting the Lakers up for their next big contending team. The nightmare scenario is if Russell Westbrook and Paul George decide they enjoy playing together but would rather continue doing so in L.A. rather than OKC.
