Hoops Rumors Chat With Luke Adams: 3/20/2017

Luke Adams
I'm curious to see how Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka handle that situation. When he took over last month, Magic completed a couple trades almost right away, including dealing Lou Williams. If that itchy trigger finger is a sign of things to come, I can imagine names like Randle, Russell, and even Ingram coming up in trade rumors this summer (I'd rank their likelihood of being traded in the order I listed them).

In 2020 who are the top 2 teams in each conference

Great question. And also a very tricky one (imagine saying at this time in 2014 that Cleveland and Boston would be 2017's top East teams).
I'll take the Spurs in the West, since they never seem to NOT be a top team. And I'll put the Wolves up there with them.
For the East... the Celtics still have too many assets to cash in for me to not say them.
I'd love the Sixers to be the second team there, but I'll go a little outside the box and say the Heat -- South Beach will always be a draw for premier free agents.
That's all the time I have for today. Thanks to everyone for your questions! Enjoy tonight's slate of games (GSW/OKC should be fun), and I'll talk to you next week.
