Change deng for Ingram and the 2nd for lakers 1st sounds closer to what it would take.

Honestly I believe Nance is a better player than Okafor so lakers say no unless Philly takes on the contract of either Deng or Mozgov.
29 Mar 2017 18:21:44
Lakers would not give that up, nance alone is probably too much for okafor.
The tyus jones trade is laughable.
Why would the nets give up even more picks for a guard that isn't going to change much.
Also, isn't henderson pretty bad? Makes no sense that the team with cap issues takes on a 9 million dollar back up.
I don't see a reason why any of these trades would happen.

DET get Jeremy Lin
BKN get Reggie Jackson
29 Mar 2017 04:30:46
Love this for DET.
29 Mar 2017 14:29:06
Love this for Detroit? Jackson is far more valuable than Lin.
29 Mar 2017 15:35:29
No, he isnt. He has a much bigger contract and is worse at every phase of the game. If he was healthy, yes, he's better than Lin, but he's permanently hurt. If it was fixable they would of had the procedure already. He can't cut, he can barely jump. He was factually the worst defensive player in the nba this year. Reggie's best strength has been pick n roll and finishing at the rim. He can't do that any more. He had the 2nd lowest fg% at the rim in the nba this year. DET tried to move him at deadline and couldn't. They are just sitting him for no reason now because he offers nothing.
29 Mar 2017 15:40:07
I hope everyone keeps saying for great Reggie and Andre are, meanwhile they've been by far the worst non-tanking team in the league for months and Reggie and Andre have the worst metrics on the entire team and have huge contracts.
29 Mar 2017 18:39:25
He made 51% of his shots at the rim. Great stat. especially seeing as about 75% of his shots are from further out?
Also, Emmanual Muiday - 50.6 %
Justise Winslow - 45.9%
I mean. that's two right there. But does that not count?
As far as being "factually the worst defensive player in the nba"
Just stop it. statistically, players that Reggie Jackson has a higher defensive win share than. and heres just a few starters, because there are literally over 100 players who have started this year and are worse. but here we go:
Jaylen Brown, Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Alex Len, Ben McLemore, Arron Afflalo, Faried, Okafor, Noah, Russell, Cauley-Stein, Lou Williams, Emmanuel Mudiay, Julius Randle.
You really should look things up before professing them as factual and true.
29 Mar 2017 18:47:50
23, May I remind you that Lin is a turnover machine, has spent most of the year injured and also plays paper thin D.
I'm not arguing with you that Jackson's overrated, I whole heartedly agree. My point is only that he's still better than Lin.
29 Mar 2017 21:18:35
Hamburger, you have no idea what you are talking about. If you think Jaylen Brown and Courtney Lee are worse defenders than Reggie Jackson you've never seen them play.
Here's a nice little summary for you to learn a little bit. This takes into account a whole bunch of stuff.
29 Mar 2017 02:25:07
Bulls : E.Mudiay , W.Chandler , 2017 1st round pick & 2019 1st round pick
Nuggets : J.Butler
29 Mar 2017 02:01:52
Cavaliers : B.Lopez & J.Clarkson
Lakers : K.Love
Nets : T.Mozgov , J.Randle , Rockets 1st & 2nd round pick Lakers
28 Mar 2017 16:12:33
If Philly misses out on Fultz or Ball
76ers get Reggie Jackson
Pistons get Jahlil Okafor
28 Mar 2017 16:33:54
Both okafor and jackson have underperformed and proved to have lingering knee issues. And although philly needs backcourt help, Jacksons 3 year and 51 million guranteed left on his contract makes philly pass on this deal
Okafor makes about 5mill next year, with the following year a team option.
28 Mar 2017 17:14:55
I don't think Detroit would do this deal, Philly would need to sweeten the deal.
28 Mar 2017 18:34:18
DET would do this in a second to get out of Jackson's contract. You can make a legitimate argument that Reggie was the worst player in the nba this year given his usage. Yes, this is largely due to injury but his knee condition is chronic. It's not fixable and not going away.
28 Mar 2017 21:08:35
Jackson has had a rough year, but he's still better than Okafor. With that said, should the Pistons decide to trade Drummond, this could be a coinciding move for them.
28 Mar 2017 22:32:31
Detroit will only do this to rebuild and get away from that contract. Okafor has no value to them. He is an ok backup center. Nothing more. Nothing less.
29 Mar 2017 03:42:55
The question isn't if okafor is of value, its " why would the sixers evwr do this with Jacksons contract and injuey history? . Both players are damaged goods. And when hralthy, Jackson is by far the better player. But jes not healthy AND he's guranteed 51 million. Of course detroit would love to dump his salary, but sixers don't plan on eating their cap space on Jackson. I thinl at this point, okafor has very little value but only makes 5 million for 1 year. Jacksons contract makes him have negative value. Sixers say no.
28 Mar 2017 04:14:10
Bucks : P.George & T.Young
Pacers : J.Parker , K.Middleton , 2017 1st rd pick & 2019 1st rd pick
28 Mar 2017 04:52:38
Its a gamble for the Bucks since there is always the concern George won't resign and they are sacrificing a fair bit of youth so I'm not entirely certain it makes sense for a team like them with a bright future to trade for George when they already have a young star in Antetokounmpo, Parker looked on his way to potentially being a all-star caliber player prior to injury, Middleton is a very good 3 and D option and they have other solid role players like Brogdon. Young would be a good fit for the team tho and their draft picks aren't going to be lottery picks so it is a great value provided George stays.
Parker at 22 and Middleton at 25 would allow Bucks to add two solid younger pieces with Turner (they could take it easy and not rush Parker back and tank in the meantime) . The two are both established which may make this sort of deal more attractive than dealing for a draft picks which have significant uncertainty behind them although the injuries do cloud things up a bit.
28 Mar 2017 17:26:36
Bucks would not do this. growing their young core, they would not give it all up for expiring PG.
28 Mar 2017 18:03:45
Giannis an PG would be a great combo
PG will play for a team that could bring him a ring and that team has a chance.
I also believe Giannis can make P George a MVP kandidate.
I rather have a Nets pick, but this trade is good value for george.
28 Mar 2017 21:10:02
I don't like it for the Pacers, if only because of Parker's continued injury history. I don't know if he is going to be able to stay consistently healthy in the NBA.
28 Mar 2017 04:01:17
Pacers get Melo Wade Grant
Bulls get Noah Stuckey Pacers 17 & 19 1st
Knicks get Ellis Young Jefferson
28 Mar 2017 05:06:00
Trade heavily favors the Pacers but I don't think its a complete reach. Pacers need to do something drastic imo to keep George. Getting Wade and Melo as two win-now pieces would definitely get them closer to being a contender than they are now which could possibly help resign George. However unless they can get them to convince Paul to come too (I don't think its likely; do Pacers even have enough cap space to offer the 30+ mill he'll demand? ) I don't think the window to contend is long enough to convince George to sign a 4 or 5 year contract.
Bulls take back Noah's bad contract but do get two firsts and the 2019 could become real valuable if Paul leaves (although I imagine it will have some protections) . I think if they decide to deal Butler they could explore this option as a way to add more young assets.
I don't forsee Knicks getting a great return for Melo so although they don't even add any young talent in this deal they are able to unload Noah's contract, Ellis and Young are expiring contracts and Young is a solid role player that could fill in minutes at sf.
28 Mar 2017 02:52:22
Pacers get Melo Wade Grant
Knicks get Young Ellis Jefferson
Bulls get Noah Stuckey Pacers 1st 2017 & 2019
28 Mar 2017 01:37:16
Indiana : D.Rose (s&t 2yr/36mil)
* i don't know what kind of contract he wants or he would get , you can have your opinion
New York : M.Ellis
Indiana : M.Muscala & 2017 + 2018 2nd round picks
Atlanta : T.Young
sign JJ Reddick 3yr/60mil
draft Harry Giles
28 Mar 2017 05:09:16
Pacers have enough cap space to sign Rose outright although the way Ellis has been playing getting rid of him and his contract may be a good thing (would also allow for Reddick signing) . Don't understand why Pacers would give up Thaddeus Young for that little. He has played pretty well this season and really improved his shooting from 3.
Overall I don't see these moves improving Pacers at all and doesn't put them in a better position to retain George (I think indy should just trade him) .
28 Mar 2017 21:12:30
If the Knicks are not resigning Rose, it's to create more cap space to for other options. Adding Ellis' salary kills that opportunity. No from Knicks.
Also agree that Young is worth more than that deal.
