Not sure why the Spurs would want Johnson for next year since that is the earliest this trade could happen. Spurs will have Murray and Walker IV back from injury and Gasol's contract is only partially guarenteed for next year. Seems smarter to buy Gasol out and save around $10 mil in cap space next year.

You always seem to forget, trading 101. If you're trading a star player, you want to trade him as far away as possible. The Pels do not want to have to play Davis 6 times a year or more. He will be sent to the East. Where they will see him twice.

Agree1 Disagree3

22 Feb 2019 12:46:22
Denver doesn't have a 2019 first rounder.

Agree1 Disagree2

22 Feb 2019 12:46:39
JoeB (for Boston I assume), why would the Pels care if he stays in the West if the plan is to rebuild with this trade?

Yes, if you’re planning on dealing an AD and then hoping to continue competing, I get your logic, but this is a team that’s out of the playoffs with AD on the team and is likely not a playoff contender after it for a while. Take the best package possible in this scenario, regardless of the conference it comes from.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Feb 2019 16:10:16
@JoeB I've posted a few times that my preferred destination for Davis is Boston as long as the package includes Tatum. But distance and opposite conference are offset-able if the return is right. I'm just floating some trade ideas for teams not really considered front runners.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2019 16:12:25
I agree with Triangle, JoeB. If you are a playoff team you send the star to the other conference so you don't play against him in the playoffs (see Spurs/ Leonard) . But if you are a lottery team, you take the best offer no matter where the star ends up (see Kings/ Cousins) . That is what added to made the Kyrie trade to Boston so unusual.

If NY fails at Durant, does Irving still come?

Knicks get Irving

What use could Boston possibly have for four players on a Knicks team that wins two games a month?

Agree2 Disagree4

21 Feb 2019 16:52:22
Knox and Mudiay instead of Nkilitina and Thomas would at least seem like you were serious.

21 Feb 2019 17:33:38
You don't think two good young guards are enough for a UFA? Side note, why would the Knicks give up young assets for someone they could just sign outright?

Agree5 Disagree1

21 Feb 2019 19:16:55
Bmiller- one young guard and a bust.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Feb 2019 20:38:14
Eh, Trier is an ok rookie too. Still, I don't see why the Knicks would give up youth for Irving. Just sign him, then trade the other guys for other assets if you want.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2019 21:26:40
haha what makes you think beverly will take the minimum? the clippers already offered him a good extension and he turned it down. he will at least get MLE.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2019 22:12:56
Yeah, just go sign top tier free agents to a bottom 3 team. No problem.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2019 23:45:44
He has player opt. Knicks need cap flexibilty. Getting Frank and Dennis. Thomas ccontract not fully guarenteed. Trier is not guarenteed.
This assure Irving additional
35 mil yr.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Feb 2019 08:19:30
This is simple. Knicks brass has been hoarding youth and picks, this leadership group finally appreciates that both are important. To deal a bunch of them to pick up a UFA that has hinted previously that he may be interested in playing in NY makes no sense.

If the youth is being moved, it will be for a guy still under contract, ie. AD. Sure, Kyrie gets more money potentially in a S&T, but if that’s the only way he’ll come, either give up less than the above or move on to the next FA down the list.

Good return for expiring unhappy Davis.

Agree2 Disagree2

21 Feb 2019 04:10:17
2 years of McCollum at $27 mil per or 3 years of Tatum at $10 mil per?

If Boston offers Tatum for Davis, it is a wrap. Game over. That is the only real question about trading AD.

Agree2 Disagree3

21 Feb 2019 04:51:40
Fredman why did you assume this trade was for next season?

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Feb 2019 07:26:46
Jorga, because the NBA is past the trade deadline for this season. So it likely has to be for next season.

Also, Harkless doesn't become an expiring contract until next season as well.

Seemed kind of elementary that this trade would be after the end of this season which means that NO is only getting 2 years of McCollum.

Agree2 Disagree1

21 Feb 2019 07:44:02
Children will play games.

Agree0 Disagree3

21 Feb 2019 16:02:26
I think Irving walks so Boston don't trade tatum. The point is it's still a good trade but the Boston better.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2019 16:28:32
It depends on what else Boston offers NO. If it's Tatum, Hayward, and a first vs that Portland package? I might take Portland's deal. If Boston offers Tatum, Horford (expiring) and 3-4 firsts? Yeah, Boston wins.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Feb 2019 18:01:32
Tatum, Smart, Baynes, Kings 1st, Memphis 1st, Boston 1st for Davis


Tatum, Horford (opt in), Ojeleye, Williams, Kings 1st, Memphis 1st for Davis and Hill.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Feb 2019 19:18:11
Look at blazers line up. No shooting. Not a good trade.

Agree0 Disagree1

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2019 20:44:21
Moore is an elite three point shooter. Lillard is too. Aminu is league average. Layman has been great lately with extended run, and just seems like a good shooter. Curry's 40%+. And Davis stretches the floor, even if it's not as far as the arc.

That's 6 solid shooters in that rotation.

That said, I'd start Layman and bring Aminu off the bench with that roster.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Feb 2019 23:12:43
Bmill I agree. But Ingram kuz ball and 4 first from the lakers would be better then tatum, horford and 4 first. and better then the blazer offer.

Agree2 Disagree2

22 Feb 2019 12:53:45
Depends on how NO evaluate Ingram, Kuzma and Tatum. Most reports I have read day Tatum is the best young talent that NO can get back for Davis.

Pick for Wizards '19 Thunder 1st

John Wall injury relief money (save money)

Believable0 Unbelievable11

20 Feb 2019 23:43:03
According to Spotrac. com, Wizards only have $2.5 mil left on that exception that expires March 11th. So salaries aren't close.

Also, Thunder cannot trade their 2019 1st rounder until draft day in June.

Additionally, Patterson cannot be traded until he opts in/ July because of his player option for next season.

Sooooooo. Zero chance of happening.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Feb 2019 02:37:05
I 100% agree with Fredman because that's exactly what I said. OKC picks for Wizards '19 1st. Isn't every trade a summertime trade on here right now? The John Wall injury money is for next season because the deadline has passed. He will miss enough games for the full injury relief. Who is posting trades for this season right now?

Agree3 Disagree0

21 Feb 2019 03:42:21
Include Dennis.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Feb 2019 08:02:40
Jorga made me do a little homework.

To qualify for a disabled player exception next season, the injured player is "substantially more likely than not to be unable to play" through June 15, 2020. 17 months is a long time for a doctor to say that a player is unable to play basketball to grant this exception.

Additionally, only one replacement player can be signed or traded for using this exception (and they must be on expiring contracts) .

Why doesn't OKC just trade these two + pick to ATL, CLE, PHX or CHI when the new season starts? Much easier to do.

Agree3 Disagree0

21 Feb 2019 18:19:50
ESPN, the athletic, bleacher report have all given the 18.5-18.6 relief estimated dollar amount.

Plus, all said because an Achilles injury (substantially unlikely to play) the exception will be available right away because it is at least a year. That has Wall starting court work maybe late February-March 2020. Wiz can spend the money, allocate relief later. I'd accept your wager on the Wiz making the playoffs 2020.

You got me on 2 players but Wizards are allowed to if Mahinmi agrees to restructure his final season under that relief waiver, giving the wizards Mahinmi's cap dollars.

Wizards absorbing players for a 1st into their cap is more difficult than for ATL, CLE, PHX, CHI? Why?

All I wanted to know was why you thought it was an illegal trade, and not for after July 1,2019? Did I write something improperly that indicates I'm ignorant of what a trade deadline is? But I got all this, please don't reply, I think I have you figured.
