Carroll calls out coaches and players as he leaves, specifically about their ISO ball:

Wasn't malicious, but he did pretty much slag Casey. Any idea which players he may be referring to? I don't see Val as a premadonna but I'm guessing the coaching staff built the style to cover some of his shortcomings. I dunno. He's not wrong though.

Casey basically does not coach and yet retains the job. Offensively they just give the ball to DD and stand around. He takes his volume shots per game and that's that. Lowry et. al. actually play when he hits the bench. Casey is going to coach a ball movement system next year? Wouldn't you need some guys who pass the ball?

Lowry and Ibaka can run a movement offense / they just need to spread the ball around and only give DD passes within the offense. Lowry just needs to be the player coach and completely ignore Casey.

Obviously I don't understand NBA cap and trade

@michaelgrange: With Joseph traded into Pacers cap space, CJ Miles signs mid-level exception. Raptors have a roughly $8-million trade exception to use.

The Toronto Raptors continued their restructuring Friday by confirming the trade of Canadian guard to Indiana.
The deal helps pave the way for the reported acquisition of unrestricted free agent
from the Pacers next week.
The Raptors acquired the draft rights to forward
for Joseph, as a throw-in to the deal as the Pacers are required to give up something in the trade. Preldzic has played the last 10 seasons in the Turkish league, and will likely never play a game for Toronto.
Making two separate deals to ultimately get Miles gives Toronto some financial flexibility.

The Carroll trade created a $12 million trade exception.
Trading Joseph into cap space creates an $8 million exception.
It also brings the Raptors down under the tax threshold so they have an $8 million MLE.
They use that MLE to sign Miles.
They still have two trade exceptions: $12 million from Carroll, $8 million from Joseph. These can only be used in single-player trades and cannot be combined.

They can sit on the trade exceptions till next year. So if Lebron brakes his leg they can make additions using them but for now they are very likely done. Unless they add some dufus like Diaw etc.

Miles is still going to Toronto. Preidzic is the draft pick they acquired.

Nike has released new NBA uniforms:

http://www.nba.com/article/2017/07/1...e-new-uniforms

Apparently there will no longer be "home" and "away" uniforms, just 4 editions for each team where the home team can choose whichever set they want to wear.

Derrick Rose to the Cavs on a one year deal according to Shams. And with that the four guys to win MVP since 2009 either play for the Warriors or the Cavs. Not sure if this increases the chances of Kyrie being dealt, but if DRose can pick up the 3FG% and stay healthy, and if Kyrie stays, at least next years Finals have a little more intrigue even if the Warriors should still win.

Also, Shams > Woj. But what a rivalry it's turning into, probably more intriguing than any of the actual NBA teams rivalries.

Still boggles the mind that LeBron has been in the finals 7 straight times, and during that time of moving from Cavs, to Miami, then back to Cavs you see that each time he left those teams missed the playoffs, endeing up high in the draft, while LeBrons new team went to the finals in his first year.

That being said, i doubt Kyrie potentially leaving will affect Cav's chances of getting into teh finals again. If im not mistake Kyrie is just grumpy that he isnt receving the promised spotlight prior to Lebron coming to the Cavs.

I feel like unless the Cavs can get an elite piece back in a Kyrie deal (Lillard/Booker/Porzingas), they should politely tell him to stfu and get back into the gym. Could be another Kobe x Shaq situation where the players don't want to play with eachother and most likely, Lebron is gone in 2018 anyways. But for the time being, this is the best chance they have at chasing a ring. Two years left on his deal anyways, so Kyrie isn't in a position where he gets to make his own decisions just yet.

I'm going to guess this whole Kyrie thing was a plan between him and Lebron to find a way to get to NY. I don't buy that they're angry at eachother. I just think he wanted to see if he could get to NY, then next year during free agency Lebron would as well. When NY balked at making a deal for Carmelo one for one, their plan when down the tubes. It wouldn't surprise me this is the case with all the rumors of Lebron telling players not to sign in Cleveland because he'll be leaving anyway.

What a plot twist that'd be
