1. resign Middleton 4y/30m
2. start Henson over Zaza because you need to let that young core play together.
3. Draft night trade Ersan and 2nd rounder for Kevin Garnett. Bucks need some veterans on their roster.
05 May 2015 18:43:45
Ersan and a 2nd for Garnett is way to much and the timberwolves would never trade Garnett unless they got an all-star.
05 May 2015 21:49:49
Middleton's going to get more than $7.5M a year, and whether the Garnett trade is reasonable or not, the Wolves aren't dealing him.

05 May 2015 14:17:22
Lal trade 27th and nick young to phi for wroten and 2nd
05 May 2015 15:03:03
That's essentially Swaggy P for Tony Wroten.
Swaggy does not fit into Sixers plans. He's 29 already and doesn't fit the Sixers culture. By the time the Sixers are good, he'll be retired, whereas Wroten will be in his prime.
Also, Swaggy has another $5mil per year for 3 years then becomes an UFA while Wroten is still on his rookie deal for two more years then become a RFA.
Sixers say NO. Lakers are stuck with an older player on a bad contract.
Maybe the Sixers would take Swaggy and the 27th pick for a 2nd rounder since they have to absorb the bad contract.
05 May 2015 14:06:16
Managing bad contracts
Philly Boston 76ers
Philly gets Boston and Indiana 2nd and gerald Wallace
Get veteran support and second rounders that they love. They have tons of cap space no problem for them
Indiana gets Brandon bass s&t
Indy want to play some small ball and a combination of West and bass with George at four is adequate. Plus they save 7 mil to boost bench
Celtics get Roy Hibbert
They get rid of Wallace contract and add a starter who offers much needed rim protection. If they get a center via trade they can include Hibbert in the deal
05 May 2015 14:21:35
Sixers will want a first to take on a bad contract. We have too many 2nd rounders as it is.
05 May 2015 15:10:18
Tre is correct. They took on McGee and his $12m for next year and got a protected 1st rounder from OKC. Wallace is at $10mil for next year so they'll want another protected 1st rounder for that.
Sixers I think will be less willing to take these contracts. Last year they took them because they were not at the cap floor. That won't be an issue moving forward. So it becomes more painful to take on other team's mistakes.
04 May 2015 23:59:37
Just trying a MIN-PHI trade
MIN get Nerlens Noel (PF of the future) and Tony Wroten
PHI get 1st round pick and Zach LaVine
draft Karl Towns and D'Angelo Russell
05 May 2015 08:58:40
Minnesota doesn't get nearly enough.
05 May 2015 13:10:58
Sixers say NO.
There's more to trading than just matching assets up. The Sixers and the fan base really like Noel. If they trade him, the fans that have been patient for two years will completely turn on the franchise.
In addition, Noel completely fits the Sixers' culture. That's very important here.
05 May 2015 13:30:53
I'm from Philly, what culture? The culture built over the better part of the past decade is endless losing. Including this year. So what culture does Noel fit? He isn't a fixture in the city. Actually never seen around here.
05 May 2015 14:24:35
Ugh. As a Sixers fan is consider that deal for Noel and wroten. We'd draft towns most likely and Russell to play the two. That trade for us is basically trading one starter for two starters hopefully. I still have my doubt on Lavine but if he is a good as some think he is then I'd do this trade.
Really tough to lose Noel. Noel looks like a absolute freak on defense and he would definately win us game just from playing defense alone.
05 May 2015 15:21:17
Tre: its a fairly simple trade. Its two starters for two starters
Noel for Towns
LaVine for Wroten
Sixers have two years invested in Noel. We have Noel and Embiid hanging and building a relationship for a year. We've put Noel and Embiid in front of Saric to build that relationship. We have Noel as as a fan favorite. Why would we trade back down the learning curve for Towns?
Sixers have tons of draft picks to find that guard combination they want. I'll go with Wroten and Russell this year, knowing I have a ton of picks in the bank.
But I don't think the Sixers should trade parts just to trade parts.
05 May 2015 21:03:43
Well wroten isn't a starter on a good team. A sixth man I think for sure. He's got a lot of work to do on the shot and passing consistently for me to considered him a started.
For me it's Noel for towns. And I think Noel is better then towns.
Lavine over wroten. Which seems like a wash to me. Both young athletic guys who have a ways to go before their great
Sixers would only do this if they believe wroten can't improve and Lavine can.
If not I'd keep Noel who might be better then all the bigs in this draft anyway.
04 May 2015 23:51:11
OKC get Danny Green (3 and D player they need) and Corey Joseph (PG depth)
SAS get Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones and 2nd round picks
- SAS can develop these guys in Popovich system
OKC resign Enes Kanter and DJ Augustine
- draft Devin Booker
05 May 2015 12:28:49
If Duncan comes back next year, and with Parker's declining health, Spurs don't have the time to develop younger players. Also, Joseph and Green are considerably better than what Lamb and Jones are or can be.
05 May 2015 15:38:37
green and joseph are free agents I don't see the sense in this
05 May 2015 21:15:03
Hey this was my idea
04 May 2015 23:45:11
Duncan for 1 more year $5M
pay Kawhi Leonard of course
resign Danny Green 3yr/18mil
trade Tiago Splitter and their future 1st to Celtics for Gerald Wallace (waive) and Tyler Zeller
sign Robin Lopez 3yr/20mil
sign Paul Millsap 4yr/50mil
- for now, with 1 year left, let Duncan start together with Millsap, for some games, can start Lopez
05 May 2015 14:26:32
Not going to resign ginolbili??
Green can get more elsewhere.
And spur notoriously don't go over the cap. I can't see them signing Leonard to a max deal if they don't have any room under the cap with the Duncan and other signings.
Maybe they can sign and trade Leonard for big assets.
04 May 2015 23:37:08
TOR-CLE sign and trade
TOR get Tristan Thompson 4yr/40mil and Matthew Dellavedova
CLE get Greivis Vasquez and Pattrick Patterson
05 May 2015 05:09:56
Raptors sign Thompson without needing to make this deal.
04 May 2015 23:32:39
LAL get Jeff Green
MEM get Nick Young, Jordan Hill and 27th pick
LAL sign Rajon Rondo and Robin Lopez
MEM sign DeMarre Carroll
04 May 2015 23:27:22
OKC get NY 1st round pick, Jose Calderon and Tim Hardaway Jr
NY get Serge Ibaka and Dion Waiters
- sign Greg Monroe and Mo Williams
05 May 2015 09:00:31
I wonder how fast Phil Jackson is fired after this trade lol
05 May 2015 14:27:48
It's at the very least somewhat realistic. I think the first and Calderon is enough for them to get ibaka and waiters. Save thj as development piece.
04 May 2015 23:23:44
PHX get Rudy Gay and Darren Collison
- sign Wesley Matthews
SAC get Brandon Knight, PJ Tucker and future 1st round pick
- sign Tobias Harris
04 May 2015 22:18:01
Thunder get a 76ers 2nd rd pick 31-55 protected
76ers get Novak and PJ3
Novak is waived and PJ3 is kept and finally gets his chance
05 May 2015 13:32:01
I think you have it backwards. The Thunder have real luxory tax problems. The trade would be:
Sixers get 2nd round pick, Novak and Perry Jones
Sixers waive Novak
OKC gets mystery foreign player and/or bag of used balls.
As for Jones getting a chance, the Sixers front court will probably be: Noel, Embiid, T. Robinson, Sims maybe. Jones might not get more minutes in Philly than the 14/night he got in OKC.
Personally, I don't think the Sixers play this game with OKC again unless they get a real player or a 1st rounder. Mix in Dione Waters or Jeremy Lamb, and then give me a call.
05 May 2015 14:28:45
I agree with philly rich. Sixers might waive both those players in that trade. What value is there for them.
05 May 2015 20:56:42
Pj3 can play SF
04 May 2015 21:27:37
ORL get DeMar Derozan and Lakers pick 2016
TOR get Tobias Harris, Tony Wroten, Philly's 1st via Miami
PHI get Victor Oladipo an Raptors 2nd
04 May 2015 22:02:51
Toronto might need more. But the others are good.
04 May 2015 23:57:05
Orlando say no thanks
04 May 2015 23:59:41
USA. Great trade. Love it as a sixer fan, and seems fair all around
05 May 2015 09:01:42
USA only a sixers fan would love this. Fair only to them. Well done!
05 May 2015 13:39:33
Why would the Sixers trade the Lakers essentially unprotected pick plus the Miami pick plus Wroten for Oladipo?
First, I think people undervalue Wroten. Oladipo's stats are better than Wroten's, but barely.
Second, I"m not trading TWO first rounders for that differential.
Third, the Lakers pick is a much sought after commodity in the league.
I'd rather go with Russell and Wroten and have my two first rounders to use as chips in the 2016 draft to move up and get the player I want.
04 May 2015 20:09:06
MIN get: MIL 2015 1st DP & Jabari Parker
MIL get: MIN 2015 1st DP & Nikola Pekovic
04 May 2015 23:53:34
Bucks say no because Parker and Towns might just be equal in talent just Towns have the size but I think Bucks do have enough length to cover it up. They will not take on that Pekovic contract with that case.
04 May 2015 16:02:16
MIL get: Demarcus Cousins
SAC get: Jabari Parker, Jon Henson, Ty Lawson, & OJ Mayo
Draft: Willie Cauley Stein
DEN get: MIL 1st DP 2015 & Nik Stauskus
Draft: Hezonja & Jerian Grant
04 May 2015 23:54:18
Good value for Cousins
04 May 2015 13:17:44
Johnson.A, Fields.L, Hayes.C, Williams.L, Hansbrough.T
Val 4 yrs $28 mil
Thompson.T 5 yrs $40 mil
Cle will have tough time matching offer with their big 3 and Varejao taking up $53 milof cap space
Belinelli.M 3 yrs $10 mil
04 May 2015 15:16:07
Very reasonable, but I think Thompson is going to get closer to $10-$12M/yr. Raps still have the money to do that and Belinelli, so you're all good.
I think you need to look at another Centre to back up Val though, having just Nogueira there is going to leave you very thin. Maybe Jordan Hill if the Lakers don't pick up his option, I think he would be a great fit at MLE money.
04 May 2015 12:59:06
Sixers- Oklahoma City Thunder
Sixers Get: Steve Novak, Perry Jones, Jeremy Lamb, OKC 1st Rounder this year, right to flip 2020 1st Rounders
OKC Gets: Their own 2016 pick back owed to the Sixers, Miscellaneous 2nd Rounder and/or mystery foreign player.
Sixers waive Novak and Jones, keep Jeremy Lamb.
Why? OKC is in NBA tax hell. In order to keep Enes Kantor and have any hope of keeping Durant, they need to dump contracts that aren't contributing to the team. This is the same situation that caused the Harden trade from OKC.
The real value in this trade is the 2020 pick since by then the Thunder will be old and outside of their winning window and the Sixers should be right in the middle of theirs.
The idea of the Sixers absorbing contracts from OKC has been recently reported in the news. One such trade included Dionne Waiters instead Perry Jones.
04 May 2015 22:04:07
Reasonable for both teams.
04 May 2015 03:33:40
Mike Miller And Tristan Thompson For Tayshaun Prince #CavsDan
04 May 2015 13:00:52
I accidentally clicked believable. Its not.
Mike Miller is not going anywhere unless Lebron is there first. Miller's his wingman. He only came to the Cavs to hang with Lebron just like they did in Miami.
So there's no way he's moving in a trade. He'd retire first.
04 May 2015 13:20:22
Are you kidding?
Thompson is a good young PF, Prince is an over the hill hack.
04 May 2015 17:55:00
Thompson and Prince are both free agents.
04 May 2015 19:35:08
Besides Thompson and Prince being free agents and Miller not going anywhere without 'bron James, I really like this trade.
03 May 2015 22:21:02
Rockets gets: Calderon
Bucks gets: Papanikolaou, Prigioni
Knicks gets: Pachulia
If Beverly and Terry leaves, Rockets will need a new starting PG. Calderon fits well with Harden having the ball in his hands and kicking it out for threes.
Bucks gets Papanikolaou to pair with his national teammate Antetokounmpo. Prigioni will bring some veteran leadership.
Knicks gets rid o Calderons contract and get a very underrated center in Pachulia. He is a good passer, strong defender down low and will bring some much needed thoghness.
03 May 2015 21:38:03
Suns get Melo Hardaway Frye Larkin O'Quinn 5th
Magic get Warren Calderon 13st
Knicks get Bledsoe Tucker 51st
Magic resign Harris
Jimmy Butler 4yr 68mil Marc Gasol 4yr 92mil
03 May 2015 21:24:42
Golden State / Lakers Trade
Lakers receive: David Lee, Harrison Barnes, Golden State '16 1st round pick.
Golden State receives: Jordan Hill and Lakers '16 or 17 2nd round pick.
Why for the Lakers?
They get Harrison Barnes who's an athletic wing that is an above average defender who is a solid shooter. David Lee is a willing PF that can score, but his main value is his expiring contract. Lakers in addition can get a late 1st round pick for next year considering they wouldn't have a pick for next yr due to the Dwight trade.
Why for the Warriors?
Able to clear playing time and cap space in order to give Draymond Green the money he wants and more minutes. In addition they get Jordan Hill who could potentially thrive in Kerr's system as a PF or even C in a small ball lineup that can shoot the mid-range jumper and is improving his shot. They also get a future 2nd as a sweetener.
04 May 2015 15:58:24
Laker fans are Delusional
04 May 2015 22:48:34
Lol, what is delusional about the trade? The Lakers are essentially helping out the Warriors by taking on Lee's expiring.
03 May 2015 20:04:44
76ers trade next years own #1, Lakers #1, Miami's #1 and Dario Saric to OKC for Durant.
OKC is now Westbrooks team. Don't know how KD is going to like being the #2 guy. OKC gets a huge return, 2 number ones most likely in the top 8, and another in the top 14. Potentially 3 lottery picks next year and Saric.
Sixers get the superstar they need, bring Durant an hour and a half up interstate 95 from his home town, and have what it takes to make a move in the east very soon. A frontcourt of Embiid, Noel, and Durant is scary good.
I realize this is far fetched, and the only reason KD might say yes is because he's close to home, but could it happen?
04 May 2015 13:03:18
Too much to send to OKC for an injury problem. Jeff Ruland anyone? Andrew Bynum maybe?
OKC does have tax problems though. So maybe they decide to move Durant in order to keep Kantor and get some young guys to extend their window. But I think the Sixers aren't ready to take on that player just yet.
04 May 2015 22:05:47
Posted something similar a lil while back. I think it good value for both teams. But only if durant signs long term before the trade.
03 May 2015 18:16:12
Thunder get Al Farouq Aminu and a future 2nd rd pick
Mavs get PJ3 and #14 pick
03 May 2015 21:25:39
Can't trade a free agent (Aminu).
04 May 2015 00:46:28
Amina is not worth a lottery pick lol
03 May 2015 18:14:11
Thunder get Antetokounmpo and a future 2nd rd pick
Bucks get Lamb and #14 pick
03 May 2015 23:13:13
03 May 2015 23:17:43
Bucks aren't giving up one of their core future pieces. Thunder should be targeting vets to help them get to the finals next season or even jus the playoffs.
04 May 2015 00:46:50
03 May 2015 18:04:57
Celtics get Cousins
Kings get Sullinger, #16 pick, Brooklyns 2016 1st rd pick, Minnesotas 2016 and 2017 2nd rd pick
03 May 2015 11:26:18
Suns have to build new and need shooting. Bledsoe needs a good team around to become a superstar and Hornets do build around as well. Mavs need a playmaker and defense.
Suns (resign Knight):
Mavs sign Aldridge max with the option to opt out starting the forth year, so he is flexible to get more money with new CAP rules.
Harris, Aminu, Nowitzki
03 May 2015 14:22:48
Lol so I take it you're a Mavs fan?
03 May 2015 15:17:23
Rondo is a free agent, and what does Charlotte want with both him and Kemba?
03 May 2015 15:54:49
Y I am . it is a possibility, not sure if it works.
The trade have to be end of june, before next season, so Rondo is still on Mavs salary. It depends, if Charlott wanna move Stephenson from their grid, because it doesn't work for the Hornets and they can use the CAP elsewhere. With Powell they get a prospect. Instead of Zeller, Powell can shoot midrange as well as behind the arc. Could work better with AJ and Powell. No clue if Charlott is interested, but I think so, they are not in winning mode and Stephenson will not become the scoring guard they need. But for Dallas, with Bledsoe in the backcourt, he can be an allrounder, defender and close open shoots from everywhere - think that would be a better role for Stephenson.
03 May 2015 15:59:30
Trade have to be this season, till end of june, and Hornets can offload Stephenson, Zeller if they want. Powell is a better shooter and could work better with AJ - if Hornets want.
03 May 2015 18:49:16
PHX needs to make deals. it's a fact. but getting Ellis? No thanks. Suns have enough headaches 9see Morr-on Bros) as it is don't need another one. They'd rather keep Bledsoe.
04 May 2015 13:56:52
sometimes d_drainer has the power to make happen some wierd trades. Lol
