Bucks Offseason
1. resign Middleton 4y/30m

Ersan and a 2nd for Garnett is way to much and the timberwolves would never trade Garnett unless they got an all-star.

Agree1 Disagree2

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.

Lal trade 27th and nick young to phi for wroten and 2nd

Believable3 Unbelievable1

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.

Agree3 Disagree1

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

Believable3 Unbelievable4

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.

Agree1 Disagree2

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.

Minnesota doesn't get nearly enough.

Agree4 Disagree2

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.

Agree0 Disagree5

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.

Agree2 Disagree0

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.

Agree0 Disagree0

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.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 May 2015 21:03:43
Phillyrich.

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.

Believable3 Unbelievable4

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.

Agree1 Disagree0

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rockets-Bucks-Knicks

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.

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.

76ers blockbuster
78ers/OKC
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?

Believable4 Unbelievable8

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.

Rondo is a free agent, and what does Charlotte want with both him and Kemba?

Agree6 Disagree1

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.

Agree3 Disagree3

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.
