Rondae will not be there at 27
28 Mar 2015 23:39:21
Bulls get Melo R.Jackson Early
Pistons get Rose McDermott
Knicks get P.Gasol Gibson 7th 21st
Knicks sign Draymond Green & Marc Gasol
Hardaway for Frank Kaminsky-18th
28 Mar 2015 23:18:33
Min gets (s&t) Lamarcus Aldrige
Por gets Pekovic, Bennett, and Towns
29 Mar 2015 13:55:47
That isn't enough for Aldridge
29 Mar 2015 16:24:05
So a free agent is worth a number one pick and a former number one pick and pek. That seems like you should just sign him. Is he restricted?
29 Mar 2015 16:30:52
He is going to be a FA so his value decreases, so maybe still not enough but it is a lot
28 Mar 2015 21:22:54
4- SF Justice Winslow
26- C Dakari Johnson
34- PG Melo Trimble
38- SG Norman Powell
Lakers send #55 (from LAC), future 2nd, and Ryan Kelly to Detroit for #38 and Caron Butler
Detroit get 3m in cap and young stretch 4. Lakers move up in the draft and add a veteran SF who is good buds with Kobe.
Lakers Free Agent signings:
- DeAndre Jordan
( pitch: the team is building around you post Kobe era. He's now #1 option where as in LAC he's #3. That may be enough to leave money behind. )
- David West
( a serviceable vet who played with Scott and fits next to Jordan. Sign him to 3 years and let him mentor Randle as he develops. )
- Andre Miller
( another vet who can mentor Clarkson and Trimble. He fits Scott's system and can still play a solid 10-18 min a night. )
Jordan Clarkson / Andre Miller / Melo Trimble
Kobe Bryant / Nick Young / Norman Powell
Justice Winslow / Caron Butler
David West / Julius Randle / Tarik Black
DeAndre Jordan / Dakari Johnson / Robert Sacre
I think this team can compete, they still may not be a playoff team but I think they will be in the conversatation. They add better veterans and overall more talent. Clarkson is a year older and will only get better. Miller brings that Fisher leadership role model. Kobes back to show he can still ball as long as he has help. He will be happy to see veterans and friends added. I love Winslow and Johnson. Winslow is going to be a stud he just needs to develop. Johnson complements Jordan as he is skilled offensively. All around team with leadership, talent, and young studs to build after Kobe.
28 Mar 2015 19:53:24
Chi - Sac - Nyk
Chi gets - DeAngleo Russell(1) Collison, and Calderon
Sac gets - Rose and Gibson
Nyk gets - McClemore, Snell, and 8th (WCS)
Chi drafts Dakari Johnson
Collison(Calderon) Russell - Butler - Gasol - Noah
Rose - Stauskas - Gay - Gibson - Cousins
Dragic - McClemore - Melo - Millsap - WCS
28 Mar 2015 17:43:54
NYK gets #4 pick and Jordan hill
Sign Harris and Jordan
Draft Towns and Mudiay
Lal get Carmelo Anthony
Sign: Deng and Lopez
28 Mar 2015 19:50:26
Anthony is the focal building block of the Knicks. They just need to add a few FA. I can see the Knicks trading their pick if not top 3 to add others around Melo. They paid him for a reason. The Knicks organization that this year was going to be a flop. They had Bargs and Amare tied up with half the salary. Next season they will go after Gasol, Love, or Aldridge to put aside Melo.
28 Mar 2015 17:12:46
Cavs Get: Faried
Nuggets Get: Haywood, Miller
Cavs can put Tristan Thompson in a s&t to possibly get another star while Denver can finally bail on the Lawson-Faried core
28 Mar 2015 16:13:35
Det trades pick #8 for Julius Randle
They trade a mid lottery pick for a guy, yes, coming off a huge injury, but he is still a very good prospect worth the eighth pick
Lakers trade pick 4 and randle for pick 1
Lineup without big time FA
They trade a guy with potential but he is coming off and injury and they jump to the #1 spot which can solidify a nice core with Okafor-Clarkson and they also have money to get a FA like Kevin Love and Loul Deng lineup: Clarkson-Kobe-Deng-Love-Okafor
Min trades pick 1 for pick 4 and 8
Draft Winslow and Lyes
I'm not sold on Towns yet. Simply swapping the first pick for the fourth and eighth is easy. Winslow might be a stretch at 4 but he has been looking like the best prospect these last two big games. Lyes is an interesting pick. He has been playing SF on Kentucky but is definitely a PF. His jumper is nice which the wolves need for a stretch 4 and a big lineup could come in with Rubio-wiggins- Lyes-KG-Dieng
28 Mar 2015 19:00:46
Because you are unsure about Towns, you want the Wolves to reach for two prospects? Neither of those prospects you have them taking are worth taking at that spot. Winslow is close but there are better prospects than him available at 4, Lyles is projected to go in the mid teens. And neither have the same potential as a guy like Towns
28 Mar 2015 22:30:03
What I've seen is that Lyes has been around #8-#14
29 Mar 2015 13:57:19
Winslow is expected to go in basically all drafts, 8-11. Lyles. highest I've seem is 11 and as low as 16. Guy above makes a good point. You aren't sold on towns. There are highest ranked and more likely better players available. But you prefer onsyead of the pretty safe bets, you trade down and take gambles on drafting people way ahead of where they should go? Smart move as always.
28 Mar 2015 10:57:43
IND get Jabari Parker, Nick Young and Jordan Hill
- IND get a new building block and a scorer off the bench + a better back-up
- draft Mario Hezonja
G. Hill / R. Stuckey / D. Sloan
M. Hezonja / N. Young
J. Parker / C. Miles / S. Hill
D. West / J. Hill
R. Hibbert / I. Mahinmi
MIL get Lakers 1st round pick 2015 and Ryan Kelly
- Jabari gets injured and it would be fine to replace him with another top pick
- draft Karl Anthony Towns
- resign Khris Middleton
M. Carter-Williams / J. Bayless / T. Ennis
K. Middleton / O. Mayo
G. Antetokounmpo / J. Dudley
K. Towns / E. Ilyasova / R. Kelly
J. Henson / Z. Pachulia
LAL get Paul George
- well, Lakers get the superstar next to Kobe who will become their new franchise player
- add pieces
Defensive center (Robin Lopez)
Point Guard (Goran Dragic)
G. Dragic / J. Clarkson
K. Bryant / W. Ellington
P. George / Rockets pick
J. Randle / E. Davis
R. Lopez / R. Sacre
28 Mar 2015 13:39:33
The sixes already own the Lakers 2015 pick, this can't happen
28 Mar 2015 14:01:50
The lakers may keep it and if they do they can draft a player then trade him. So it's possible. What's not realistic is the lakers getting towns.
28 Mar 2015 14:10:15
I'd rather have Jabari Parker than Towns.
29 Mar 2015 13:58:56
I'd rather have towns. Bigger. Far better defense. Not undersized for the position. Oh yeah, NOT RECOVERING FROM A TORN ACL!!
28 Mar 2015 04:47:05
Crazy idea that probably would never happen, but I'll share it.
Rockets get Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Dion Waiters, Steven Adams, and a first round pick
Thunder get Dwight Howard, James Harden, and Donatas Motiejunas
I think it's a somewhat fair trade, all though I'd have to say it favors the Thunder. They reunite Russell Westbrook and James Harden to form the best back court in the NBA (Even better than Steph Curry and Klay Thompson). They also bring in a player who when healthy is easily a top 5 center in the league. Motiejunas would also be a worthy starter on this team. Their starting five would be incredible:
If Durant were healthy, this trade would be more fair. Durant's foot issue definitely hurts his trade value, but I've heard that he's expected to fully recover after this surgery. When healthy, he's a top three player in the league with the potential to get even better. Harden has developed into as good of an offensive player as Durant, but Durant is elite defensively as well. He only has a year left on his contract, but Houston is a pretty big market and Durant played college ball at Texas so I don't see why he wouldn't re-sign. Durant would also remain teammates with several of his OKC pals: Serge Ibaka, Dion Waiters, and Steven Adams.
I feel like this starting five has a good blend of defense and offense. The Rockets could also use Beverly, Trevor Ariza, and their additional first rounder as trade bait for an upgrade at PG. Waiters would develop into a good scorer alongside Durant and can be a very good defender when he wants to be. Ibaka is an underrated player. He's athletic as anyone in the league and is continuing to develop offensive skills. He's already an elite defender, but has the potential to be an elite offensive player as well. I was high when I came up with the idea and typed this, so tell me how I did.
28 Mar 2015 09:36:00
You basically change the jersey design of Thunder and Rockets
28 Mar 2015 14:03:08
Durant is elite defensively? Major news to me!
28 Mar 2015 19:02:44
Rockets say Hell No
28 Mar 2015 02:02:51
Chi - Okc - Min - Sac
Chi gets KD and Dieng
Okc gets Cousins, McClemore, and Muhhamad
Sac gets Noah and Butler
Min gets Kanter, Robertson, and McDermott
Rose - Snell - KD - Gasol - Dieng
Westbrook - Waiters - McClemore - Ibaka - Cousins
Collison - Butler - Gay - Draft - Noah
Rubio - Wiggins - McDermott - Towns - Kanter
28 Mar 2015 13:29:35
Wolves say no, Kanter has started to play well, but Dieng still has more value than him and Muhammad definitely has more value than Robertson and McDermott
28 Mar 2015 14:06:20
Wolvesfan NO WHERE IS DIENG OF HIGHER VALUE THAN KANTER. Muhammad is never on the court to have value. Stop acting like those two are beasts and highly covered in the nba anywhere except Minnesota. Because they aren't. You'd make out quite well with this trade in getting a young high level center that could realistically grow into a cornerstone of the franchise. Nothing you have in oft injured Muhammad nor decent dieng
28 Mar 2015 14:35:27
You must not watch a Wolves game then, also this is the first time Kanter has shown anything near the potential he is supposed to have and if the Wolves wanted him they could just go after him in free agency. And where did I say these two are beasts? They are both players with only slightly less potential than Kanter himself. And maybe you should check your facts a little bit, Muhammad has been injured once, and it is a torn ligament in his finger at that, and was playing great before the injury, realistically giving him the same potential as Kanter as he is only in his second year
28 Mar 2015 14:49:24
The only thing Kanter has on Dieng is Offense. Dieng is better rebounder, defender and shot blocker. O yea give me Dieng over overrated Kanter anyday
28 Mar 2015 16:22:40
kanter isn't overrated but he is no where near diengs level defensively and dien is no where near kanter offensively
28 Mar 2015 17:29:41
Dieng is better at everything except post moves. But dieng is working on it and getting better. also, Dieng is developing a mid-range jump shot which Kanter can barely dream about
29 Mar 2015 14:05:14
I'm wondering how my stats are off. Didn't muhammad play 37 games last year and 38 games this year? Did he miss all the games last year because he wasn't good enough? I'm sorry I don't really pay attention to role players in small markets that play less than half the games. So perhaps I'm missing something as to how he missed over half the games in his 2 seasons on the league.
28 Mar 2015 01:42:19
If the knicks draft Russell:
sign wesley matthews for less than 10 mil a year ( he is injured will play at mid season and may come cheaper after coming off an injury)
if wesley matthews is not possible sign danny green or try getting monta ellis
sign deandre jordan and tristan thompson
sign kevin love and robin lopez
if knicks draft Towns try getting any and if possible all:
for PG: brandon knight (he is a restricted FA)
for CLsign roy hibbert
for PF: sign scola (reserve)
for SG: sign lou williams and belinelli
28 Mar 2015 01:02:55
Min gets Blake Griffin
Lac gets Pek, Martin and #3 pick Johnson
Resign Jordan and sign Millsap
28 Mar 2015 13:31:53
Clippers say no, and by taking on the contracts of Pek and Martin they wouldn't be able to resign Jordan and definitely wouldn't be able to get Millsap
28 Mar 2015 13:34:35
So the clippers trade an MVP like player in Griffen for 2 players that won't start and a draft pick you suggest be used on a guy way ahead of where he is projected? Hot dang sounds like a winner to me!
28 Mar 2015 17:31:43
I agree with you Pizza, but Martin and pekovic would upgrade the bench so much they would have all guys that have started before on their bench. Also I have to disagree with Blake being a MVP
29 Mar 2015 14:07:06
Tmoney, that rationale is laughable. Fine, no MVP. But a top 10 player.
28 Mar 2015 00:58:47
Houston gets Martin, Bennett, Barnes, Livingston, #1 pick Russel
GS gets James Harden
Min gets Klay and Jones
28 Mar 2015 13:34:23
This is just plain silly, there is no way Harden gets traded and that wouldn't be enough for him. Not to mention that Harden and Curry would never work in the same offense, both are ball dominant guards.
28 Mar 2015 16:08:42
Harden>Klay but Klay fits the team better than Harden (defense and not ball-dominant) and they wouldn't risk breaking up the splash bros. Plus HB and Sdot? No thanks
28 Mar 2015 16:24:59
please refrain from calling him Sdot
28 Mar 2015 17:34:09
I would rather have harden and Curry because you would have two guys that are the best at their position and would need to be double teamed all of the time. Also harden is ball dominant but he gets the most assists on his team also and curry and him would set ecother up all of the time
28 Mar 2015 19:03:53
Rockets will not trade Harden especially for that garbage
27 Mar 2015 20:12:46
Min gets Gasol and Mirotic
Mirotic/ Payne/ KG
Chicago gets D'Angelo Russel and Gorgui Dieng
Resign Butler and Sign Brandon Bass
Butler/ Dunlevey/ McDermott
27 Mar 2015 20:59:26
Bulls get wayyyy too much
27 Mar 2015 23:07:22
It would be fair if it was Marc Gasol not Pau
27 Mar 2015 23:08:23
minny say no
28 Mar 2015 00:52:41
How bout D'Angelo and Pek??
28 Mar 2015 13:36:40
How about the first is worth more. Gasol is an expiring contract at that point and mirotic, while not bad, he isn't really the most accurate shooter ever. He's shooting under 40% and not positive but isn't he older than most rookies? No reason to trade that top pick for any of that.
27 Mar 2015 20:05:19
OKC gets Butler(s&t), Noah, Dunlevey, McDermott
Chi gets Kevin Durant and Enes Kanter
27 Mar 2015 20:59:49
Again Bulls get wayyyy too much
27 Mar 2015 17:54:23
POR get: Tyler Ennis, Miles Plumlee, Jared Dudley, & Oj Mayo
Draft: Sam Dekker
Resign Robin Lopez
MIL get: Nic Batum & CJ McCollum
Draft: Frank Kaminsky
28 Mar 2015 15:11:54
I just don't see why Portland does this. The only one worth anything for them in this trade is Plumlee. Although Batum is not having a good year everybody knows what he is capable of and he is still much better then Dudley. And Mayo is nice to have coming off the bench but still not worth it for the Blazers
28 Mar 2015 16:26:08
blazers get rid of batums contract while making their bench more formidable
27 Mar 2015 16:45:05
Kevin Love For Al Jefferson #CavsNation
27 Mar 2015 16:55:04
hornets won't do it because their would be doubt that love will resign with them.
27 Mar 2015 17:16:01
27 Mar 2015 17:37:38
27 Mar 2015 19:09:15
Dumb trade for the Cavs
27 Mar 2015 19:15:47
exactly my point so why would hornets do it.
27 Mar 2015 21:01:04
That wasn't your point. You had no idea Jefferson is a free agent.
27 Mar 2015 16:26:07
Toronto gets Anthony Bennett
*give up a late first and get rid of Hayes contract for a guy who, yes, has looked like a bust but he is from Canada and any change of cenery would be great for this guy.*
Mil gets #1 overall pick and Chuck Hayes and #22 pick
Middleton/ Mayo/ RJ Hunter(#22)
Min Gets Jabari Parker
27 Mar 2015 16:58:55
Minny say no way. Why would they want parker who plays the same position as wiggins. They would rather have a big in this years draft than a serious injury that parker suffered. Look, it just won't happen.
27 Mar 2015 17:38:49
@gosixers jabari parker can play the 3 & 4 while wiggins can play the 2 & 3, not saying that this trade would happen but your reasoning for it not to happen is not justified.
27 Mar 2015 18:58:36
Gosixers26 is right, why would the Wolves want a guy coming off serious injury who is an undersized 4, when they can get a 7 foot pf/c prospect at the top of the draft, which is a position of need. The Wolves have enough guys who can play small forward
27 Mar 2015 19:58:17
Parker is the next Carmelo Anthony and although he hasn't played much he has proven he can play the four and would be a mismatch against anyone
27 Mar 2015 21:02:01
Hahah ^^^^^ absurd to claim him melo
27 Mar 2015 23:19:50
U go ahead and keep thinking parker is the next melo. Both of their game r differ.
28 Mar 2015 16:13:13
Jabari Parker> better than any player in this years draft. Towns, Okafor, and Russell are all good but not as good IMO.
28 Mar 2015 17:36:37
Their game is not that different if you have ever watched either of them and know anything about basketball
29 Mar 2015 14:20:16
I watch a lot of melo. Not so much parker seeing as he had only 25 games. What I see in parker is a shooter. Undersized. Terrible defense. Slow before the ACL even slower after. And not a leader. The team was better after the injury than before. I'll bet on okafor muindey and towns before betting on parker after the ACL.
27 Mar 2015 11:33:59
CHI get: Lance Stephenson, Gorgui Dieng, & Noah Vonleh
Build for the future without giving up too much of the present.
MIN get: Mirotic, MKG, & CHI 2015 1st
Draft: Okafor or Towns
c. okafor or towns
CHA get: Gibson, Martin, & McDermott
win now mode
27 Mar 2015 12:47:11
Chicago not giving up much?? Mirotic is a ROY candidate who's double doubled since the AS break. Their 1st is going to be in the 20 range. Gibson is still a valuable trade piece, and while McDermott has not had a great first season, he'll still have some trade value. And all for the overpaid underperforming Stephenson, Dieng who wouldn't be a starter on this team, and the seldom seen Vonleh.
Bulls say no!
27 Mar 2015 13:31:46
I do like the trade as a Wolves fan, but Triangle O is right, Bulls are giving up a lot of valuable pieces for not much return
27 Mar 2015 13:46:49
i viewed it as Dieng would be Noahs eventual succesor, Vonleh would replace Gasol and Stephenson could run the point if rose doesn't return to form, and then they have money to max out Butler and sign another piece.
Future line up of:
27 Mar 2015 15:54:04
Dieng will be an All-Star in 2 years
27 Mar 2015 17:00:52
yea right dieng is just a ok player. I don't see any flashes of him becoming an all star.
27 Mar 2015 19:59:56
You don't watch the wolves then. Dieng has been playing very solid and it is just like the fourth year he has been playing 19p-11r-6b in one game is pretty good
27 Mar 2015 23:24:12
U act like i'm sayin he sucks when i'm not. i'm just sayin I don't see him competing with other players that play the same position for an all star spot.
27 Mar 2015 09:05:31
Okc nyk cle
Okc get love and shumpert
Ny get thompson and cavs 1st future and
Cle get anthony and durant
Trade mozgov and della to houston for howard
27 Mar 2015 12:27:00
Then trade a second rounder to the Warriors for curry
27 Mar 2015 08:49:14
Chicago Okc Toronto
Chi get kevin durant
Okc get jimmy butler and terrence ross and raptors future pick
Tor get jeremy lamb and taj gibson
27 Mar 2015 11:11:26
Totally one sided for the Bulls
27 Mar 2015 11:52:52
That is a giid trade. I would love Jimmy Butler be Westbrook's partner when Durant leave and they also get a young athletic sf
27 Mar 2015 08:38:44
Portland get Kevin Durant and Tony Wroten
Okc get Phila 1st 2015, Por 1st, Nic Batum and Aaron Afflalo
Phi get Damian Lillard
27 Mar 2015 13:41:42
this could actually work out for all 3 teams. But it won't happen.
27 Mar 2015 14:53:22
Actually a great trade for all teams. But won't happen due to teams not wanting to trade big name stuff.
27 Mar 2015 17:02:05
I wish it would happen though
27 Mar 2015 03:53:12
Resign KG and Hamilton
Draft Cauley Stein *he is a future Deandre Jordan in my eyes and lobs with him wiggins and Lavine would be incredible*
Do Knockerbocker's trade: Dieng and Martin(maybe a pick) for Mirotic and McDermott
Sign Khris Middleton to a max
27 Mar 2015 13:36:57
The Wolves will not just waive Pek, and why would they draft Cauley-Stein when they could draft Okafor or Towns, two very clearly better prospects. And Khris Middleton is not worth a max contract
27 Mar 2015 15:57:38
The way Middleton has been playing, there is talk about it. Also I was thinking Cauely Stein because the draft is rigged for the big time markets like NY. And I know they would take a cap hit but pekovic is a big contract that would need to be out of the way for Middleon
27 Mar 2015 19:03:20
They would still take the full 12 million cap hit except now he isn't on the roster, so they still wouldn't be able to sign anyone to a max contract
27 Mar 2015 22:14:46
Middleton is no where near a max player. If another team is talking about offering it, so be it. Far better ways to spend money the. Throwing it all at him.
29 Mar 2015 14:22:55
The draft is actually rigged for the big markets like Cleveland. Yeaaaaaa
27 Mar 2015 03:00:33
Ping pong balls are rigged so they will probably fall to like the 6th pick
In that case Towns is gone for a Pf and Okafor is long gone.
Waive Pekovic to save some money
Only Resign KG on a two year deal but not for 12M like he has now
Sign: Paul Millsap with a lot of $$
Draft #6 Stanley Johnson
27 Mar 2015 12:56:10
How are the Wolves better by making these moves?
27 Mar 2015 13:40:07
Wolves can't drop below the 5th pick right now because they are in line to get the 2nd pick, also waiving Pek saves no money, they would still have to pay his contract and it would still count against the cap. We wouldn't be able to afford Millsap and Payne is absolutely not a center
27 Mar 2015 15:59:53
He can play center and has a lot big boy @wolvesfan and they do still save a lot of money from waiving pekovic. I know it is not the whole amount they save but they save a ton still and yes they can drop under five if you knew how the draft works
27 Mar 2015 19:06:12
The lottery guarantees that you won't drop 3 positions lower than your projected pick, in this case they are at 2 and can't go below 5. Also, they would take the full 12 mil, this isn't football where there are partial cap hits, it is the full thing.
27 Mar 2015 22:17:23
Tmoney seriously learn the draft rules and the salary cap rules. Worst they get is 5. And his entire contract must be paid unless they amnesty him and they definitely can't afford that.
27 Mar 2015 01:30:49
Cavs get Melo
Lakers get Varejao Love 5yr 90 Harris 5yr 60
Knicks get magic 1st
Magic get Randle
Melo willing drop his no trade clause to play next Lebron
Lakers fill their void at center and pf and still keep pick
magic get perfect compliment next to Vucevic. With okafor and Towns off the board.
knicks clear cap space to sign 3 maxed contract
Lakers get Mudiay
Butler maxed out
AL Jefferson maxed out
Marc Gasol maxed out
Knight maxed out
D.Green 4yr 56mil
27 Mar 2015 15:29:07
To point out only one of many things wrong, the projected draft order is Knicks, Wolves, then Sixers.
27 Mar 2015 22:32:02
Projected chances of winning ping pong balls not draft order and 15 games left.
27 Mar 2015 23:13:10
I Like This Team Roster
29 Mar 2015 07:08:53
First of all Magic will rather pick WCS and trade tobias for a pick late first round or a player and a second round pick
29 Mar 2015 14:25:42
Wait did the lakers give up randle and get kevin love, Harris and varejo? Well that seems to be a bit much to me.
26 Mar 2015 22:39:28
Sixers smart moves
Mudiay - Own pick
RJ Hunter - Heat pick
Sign Draymond Green close to or pay max
Sign Bismack Biyombo
27 Mar 2015 14:54:20
Solid deals. I wouldn't sign anyone though. Not until I'm sure what we got in Embiid. Sign a guy next year.
26 Mar 2015 15:38:03
MIL get: Demarcus Cousins, Wilson Chandler & Carl Landry
SAC get: Ty Lawson, OJ Mayo, John Henson, & Kenneth Faried
DEN get: Ben McLemore, Ersan Illaysova & Giannis Antekuompo
26 Mar 2015 16:37:35
Giannis is no where near that value
26 Mar 2015 17:37:44
Giannis Henson Ersan & taking on Landry's contract = Cousins
26 Mar 2015 20:09:01
I think that is equal value @pizza you obviously don't watch him and see his potential
26 Mar 2015 23:35:26
I don't see why Sacremento would do this. Boogie Cousins is the only good thing they have going for them right now.
27 Mar 2015 00:25:51
Lol. His potential is what? A slim chance he can equal the current cousins? The others aren't good. Might as well hold onto the already elite player instead of trade for a slim chance of someone who could at best be as talented. Oh and he plays center. Giannis plays sf and isn't a top 5 at the position. Yup. I know the sport of basketball. I don't talk about potential. Winners are built on reality.
27 Mar 2015 00:27:04
Oh and it doesn't equal cousins. It equals cousins. Plus chandler. Plus Landry. Big contract or not he's still a legit starter and chandler is above average as well.
27 Mar 2015 00:48:02
So to clarify, because again Tmoney, I don't watch the sport nor know anything.
Mil gives up Giannis, 12 pts and 6 boards a game.
Henson. 7 pts and 4 boards per game
Ersan, 10 pts, 4 boards per game and still has 8 million and 3 years left. TERRIBLE contract
And mayo, 11 pts, 2 boards, 2 assists, with 8 mill and 2 years remaining. again, awful contract.
They get Cousins, 23.8pts, 12.3bds, 3.3assists, 1.6blocks, 1.5steals.
they get chandler almost 14pts, 6 boards
and they get landry 7 pts, 4 boards and 3years at 6.5 mill
So the bucks basically get rid of 10 mil per year in bad contracts, then trade henson and giannis, who combine to average 19 pts and 10 rebounds per game. and they get cousins and chandler, who combine for 38pts and 18.3 boards per game. Yeah, me thinks you are correct, the bucks are getting equal value. Slashing their pay roll, getting proven players who average literally DOUBLE the people they are traded for. yup, I must be missing something.
Oh and on another note, the trade doesn't work due to salary mismatches on all 3 teams. Oh well.
27 Mar 2015 16:06:59
Bro it's not all about stats lol. Basically you are saying that you would not trade someone like a Jamal Crawford for Andrew Wiggins because Crawford=16ppg and Wiggins=15ppg. Who is going to be better Wiggins but NO Crawford is better because he averages more. Your logic makes no sense at all. Also, Giannis only has a small chance? He is improving every game and is so long and young he can be a Kevin Durant bye
27 Mar 2015 22:21:07
Yeah your example is for a extremely older player on the back end of his career. Cousins is 24 and getting better. Oh and good point about Durant. Minus of course his stats are NO WHERE near Durant at the same point in his career. But guess that doesn't work in proving your point that giannis is the best prospect in the game. Bye.
27 Mar 2015 22:21:38
Bro, sorry bro. Your boy is good not elite bro. Bye. Bro.
29 Mar 2015 14:30:50
What's amazing is you say he can be Durant. Durant averaged 20/25/30 in his first 3 years. Winning a scoring title the third year. Giannis is 6/12. Slightly less I'd say. Additionally. HE shoots about 15% from 3. Listen is he good yes. Is he above average with potential to maybeake an all star game or two. Yes. Is he elite and going to be an MVP player and elite scorer like Durant. Can't say for sure, but 99% chance no. Just be honest in your evaluations. He is no where near where you make him out to be. That's ovvious to everyone except you.
26 Mar 2015 14:51:16
OKC get: Kevin Love, Terrence Ross, & Grevis Vasquez
CLE get: Kevin Durant & Steven Adams
sg. jr smith
TOR get: Tristan Thompson (s&t)
26 Mar 2015 18:21:06
Cmon lebron and kd on the same team. Never will happen.
26 Mar 2015 19:44:00
Lebron & d-wade happened so why not?
26 Mar 2015 23:37:31
Love is really good friends with Westbrook so this could happen but the Thunder would have to know that Love is staying long term for a fact before they'd trade Durant for him.
27 Mar 2015 00:28:18
Lebron and D wade play two different postions. The only way KD and LBJ will play on the same team is if KD comes to the East(ASG).
27 Mar 2015 02:50:16
Yea but lebron and d wade play differ positions and lebron and kd play the same position. It will never happen nor will it ever work out between them.
27 Mar 2015 11:21:44
LeBron can play pg, sg, sf, & pf at any given time. KD can play sg sf and possibly stretch pf
27 Mar 2015 13:48:37
Are we really going to argue about whether or not kd and LeBron will play for the same team. It will never happen so drop it.
27 Mar 2015 19:22:14
LeBron and KD probably never will play on the same team but if they some how did they definitely could make it work as team mates. LeBron would take on more of a point guard kind of role and feed KD the ball. They'd be awfully hard to beat.
27 Mar 2015 23:30:34
Why r u guys still talking about kd and lebron playing together. Kd doesn't want to play with lebron in HIS home town. Kd would rather kick lebrons butt.
