Sixers and Magic

Sixers get Hezonja, Lakers future 1st, Orl 2nd 2017

Magic get the later 1st of Sixers and lakers 2017

Sixers get Hezonja who is still some what unknown due to lack of playing time as Magic have Fournier and tend to play Hezonja at sf which while he has the size he is better suited to sg his ability to drive and space the floor would benefit the Sixers he's not the best defender but his 6'8 size should help him cover sg's. Sixers need Guards theirs loads pg's in this draft which they can use their pick on but the best sg is a 6'2 Monk who could be a risk if he can't match up to the bigger sg of the NBA. They get a 2nd to draft and stash or add high potential backup and a future Lakers pick which looks like it will be a 1st and could help as trade bait or to continue to build round their core.

Magic are at the crossroads unless they can trade for a star they might be better taking a step back and adding some more youth at positions of needs Gordon is still real young so won't effect him while he's still developing but he is still better suited at Pf, They should draft a sf say Issac or Tatum and best pg available as Payton seems to play better off the bench but with out any stars it will be tough to make a leap.

Is this a draft day deal? Only way it makes sense.

It would probs be best for Sixers if it was a deadline deal as it would mean they could give Hezonja mins to bond with team and if Simmons joins them after all star means if Sixers and Lakers continue to improve the pick Magic get could be a late lottery.
But for the Magic it would probs be best a draft night trade as they would know where the pick would be.

I think its solid for 76ers and a smart move for Orlando. Only issue is Orlando has been doing the complete opposite of "taking a step back and adding youth". They foolishly dealt Tobias Harris (for nothing) and Oladipo and their first last year (Sabonis) for Ibaka who will probably leave in free agency.

Griffin trade is just bad.

Sure, and Grant and Morrow should be able to net you LeBron. That Griffin trade is so bad that it's laughable.

Any deal by the LAC involving Paul Pierce will only be made to the Celtics.

Ya Griffin trade is pretty bad value. Even if Blake Griffin said he'd never resign in LA I rather have him the rest of the season and get the cap relief of his expiring contract so I could go after Ibaka, Millsap or another FA than to take on Kanter's salary and I believe Roberson is up for restricted FA this summer too.

BK sends B. lopez-B. Bogdanovic

BCK send Monroe-Thon Maker-2017 1st rounder plus a 2018 2nd rounder protected. depending on how far they advanced in 2017 playoff

BK get two youngster and a avg. center they are looking to get rid of

Bcks get good scoring center and a shooter

Believable3 Unbelievable6

19 Jan 2017 12:50:41
I like Lopez to the Bucks and more shooters wouldn't hurt the Bucks. Its not a bad trade but if I'm the Bucks I'm not sure I'd trade Maker yet since his upside is through the roof. I'd give up Vaughn and a 2018 first (they should be pretty good next year once Middleton is healthy and especially if they got Lopez) before I gave up Maker who most likely will be a dud but his upside is too great and for a team like the Bucks who hit lotto on Giannis and also have Parker I think their future is bright enough they can afford to take risks.

Trade deadline deal if Detroit wants to blow it up

Pelicans - Reggie Jackson, Tobias Harris

Pistons - Tyreke Evans (Expiring) Solomon Hill, Jrue Holiday (Expiring), unprotected 1st Round

Pels secure their starting lineup while pistons clear contracts and gain extra 1st rounder

No thanks from OKC

If okc wants to contend with superteams, they need a legit 2nd scoring option. Oladipo is a good 3rd option but not 2nd.

19 Jan 2017 02:53:19
That's a pretty interesting trade proposal if you're the Thunder. Pairing Carmelo with Westbrook would be interesting.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 06:43:18
You think Carmelo would be willing to accept that Westbrook is the #1 option? And also OKC can not trade their 2017 1st so make it a future 2nd

melo has a no trade clause. And Lala is NOT moving to Oklahoma City

Mavs - Tyreke Evans, Solomon Hill, top 10 protected 1st

How about top 5 protected 1st, then it would be a deal

Boston trades: Marcus Smart, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, and Nets 2018 1st round pick.

New York trades: Carmelo Anthony, Justin Holiday, and Kyle O'Quinn and 2017 2nd round pick.

If Danny Ainge made that deal he could be charged with malpractice. Boston gives away two starters, their top sub and the potential No. 1 draft pick for a bunch of Knick garbage. No thanks.

Agree4 Disagree5

19 Jan 2017 07:31:27
Okay then take the picks away, but I don't see Phil Jackson making a deal if he can't pry one of those 1st rounders away, and it's not the 2017 pick which is guaranteed to be top 5 at this point, and stay that way. The new roster would compete with Cleveland in the East, and they can still make another trade possibly. Kyle O'Quinn has a great contract, but perhaps a better deal can be made for Boston, maybe Rozier instead of Smart, but if the 1st rounder isn't on the table than you have to give up some decent starting caliber players to acquire a superstar rental. One way or another these teams can easily get a deal done.

5: Zeller; O'Quinn; Olynyk
4: Horford; Jerebko; Mickey
3: Carmelo; Brown
2: Bradley; Holiday; Young
1: Thomas; Rozier; Jackson

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 09:54:36
Worst trade ever posted here. Believe it or not, other than KP, the only Knicks player who might have any trade value at all is O'Quinn. The Knicks would have to attach first rounders to Carmelo in order to convince someone to take his contract. He's no good anymore. Rose is broken. Noah is overpaid and got old in about 6 months.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 11:35:14
No Porzingis, no trade -- especially if Anthony is involved. NY is stuck with Melo. He likes living in NYC more than he likes basketball.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 11:35:24
Worst trade ever BHC? Melo is better than Crowder, O'Quinn is as good or better than Johnson, and Smart may have a small advantage on Holiday. I would only argue that throwing in a potential top 3 pick next year for a guy in his 30's may be an issue for the C's. Take out Nets pick, put in one of the other 1st from someone like Memphis and tell me how this is "the worst trade ever".

Oh, and did you write this before or after the Knicks kicked the C's tail last night?

PHI: R Rubio, T Black, 1-3 protection removed from Laker's pick

MIN: J Calderon and J Okafor

LAL: N Noel

PHI gets Rubio who is a good defender and can see the floor very well, a backup center and the Laker's pick regardless of where it falls this year.

MIN gets an offensive big man to play with KAT. KAT can spread the floor for Okafor and play D and would fit very well with Okafor. They also get a veteran PG to bridge the gap before Dunn is ready to take over.

LAL get a young defensive big man who's athletic and can grow and develop with the young core.

Minnesota has no need for Okafor. They need defense, not offense.

Agree3 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 03:55:05
Id trade Clarkson for Noel at this point. We keep falling in the standings (only 2 games ahead of worst in the west) so we would have another real chance at keeping our pick some wouldn't remove the protection.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 07:36:36
Lakers can't risk giving up a top 3 pick for a guy they may not want to match, if other offers are too high.

MIN has no need for Okafor

Clippers get Carmelo Anthony and Kyle O'Quinn

Knicks get DeAndre Jordan and Luc Mbah a moute

Woah no where close. Melo doesn't bring that value at all.

If Doc Rivers the general manager ever made that deal, Doc Rivers the coach would quit in protest.

Agree3 Disagree2

18 Jan 2017 23:02:08
I know the clippers say no, but also don't think it's that off. Debased is a special talent, there are not many players like him in the league.... part of that is due to a lack of need of players like him. Any team would much rather choose a Dominant SF who can play multiple positions over a dominant C who can only play that one position. Jordan is less than 4 years younger than Melo. That makes a difference, but not as much as you always seem to imply. You two, think Melo is going to curl up into a ball and die any one of these games. HE CAN STILL PLAY. I don't like him, but please stop with the Melo hating. Also Oquinn is a good player and you completely disregarded him, is he enough to flip the deal, nah, but he still deserves some conversation.

Agree4 Disagree0

18 Jan 2017 19:11:16
Realistic trade for the Knicks and melo and melo will agree.

Knicks and cavs.

Knicks trade Melo and rose

Cavs trade shumpert, Jr smith and thristan Thompson.

Knicks get three starters for two guys not in their future.

Cavs get lebrons friend in melo and a sg or back up pg in rose.

Cavs starting five


Believable5 Unbelievable13

18 Jan 2017 20:10:34
Reasonable trade but I reckon the Cavs will want to keep Tristan, I could see that deal happening though, I think Knicks have to accept they not going to get any sort of value for Melo, they better trading him for expiring contracts

Agree2 Disagree4

18 Jan 2017 20:20:36
Thanks for the back up Tre lol don't know if it's enough for NY but I would do this but if it isn't enough offer rights to Cedi or a second round pick or McRae or Liggins if they want one of those two.

Agree1 Disagree2

18 Jan 2017 20:24:03
Cavs say no only because it leaves them threadbare at center.

Why not replace Thompson with Frye, sending a whole bunch of Ex Knicks home!

Agree4 Disagree0

18 Jan 2017 20:32:37

Thompson must be included to get this deal. They have Anderson as a back up center if needed so not a terrible back up. The cavs get melo and rose. Two legit piece that may. bridge the gap for the cavs to beat the warriors. Right now I truely don't think the cavs can do it with what they have.

Agree0 Disagree4

18 Jan 2017 20:35:29
Rite quick.

I think those kind of minor pieces are more of annoyance in this kind of trade. They can be added but don't bring any real value back to the Knicks. Knicks real gets in this deal are shumpert and Thompson. Young guys one semi- friendly deals. I like thompsons rebounding next to prozingus. And smith and shumpert can both shoot a bit so that should spread the floor.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jan 2017 20:48:14
Unfortunately Phil won't do a trade unless he gets back Love

Agree0 Disagree3

18 Jan 2017 21:12:04
If I was Cavs I would need O'Quinn so I have a center. Anderson is out for season so they'd have Frye and Love to play center and its neither's preferred position. I don't think Rose should be part of the deal (they can get a cheaper and easier to acquire backup pg elsewhere or in FA) . I don't really like Melo in that starting lineup I think he'd be more valuable as go to scorer off the bench and that way (if they get another center) Love can go back to pf where I think he would be more effective.

Overall don't like the trade for Cavs. They are giving up 3 best defenders. That starting lineup wouldn't have any interior defensive presence and Melo and Love are both horrible on defense.
