I don't see the blazers doing this. They aren't in position to let draft assets go. They could be a lottery team this season.

Spurs get: Whiteside, Winslow
Heat get: Gasol, Mills, Toronto 2019 st.

Heat get to move on from Whiteside, Solid backup big, solid backup PG, and 1st pick.

Spurs get upgrade at Center, upgrade at backup SF.

I like this move for miami.

Talent wise, this is a steal for the Spurs, but i'm not sure they want Whiteside.

Raptors get Simmons/ Martin from Magic-Singler/ Patterson from Thunder (stretch or buyout both)

Thunder get Ibaka from Raptors/ Ross from Magic

Magic get Schroeder/ Abrines from Thunder

Raptors get solid wing player and a big guy with potential, save a little bit of money

Thunder get to clean their books a little bit, get a couple of players that would be more useful to them than what they are giving up, one with an expiring contract

Magic get the best player in the deal (apologies to Serge), a good young scoring pg which they lack and a backup 2.

Schroeder and Abrines are average players at best. Simmons is the gem in this deal. Whoever ends up with simmons wins.

Bad deal for magic.

4 team Whiteside trade:

Bucks send: Snell
Receive: Jr Smith
Smith is an upgrade in the short term, and can be sold as a large expiring or waived to create additional cap space next offseason.

Heat send: Whiteside
Receive: TT, Ajinca (waive), '19 & 2x '21 2nds
Get a cheaper backup C who will be less of a headache, also get some 2nds to restock their tradable assets. This move is all about ushering in the era of Bam.

Pels send: Ajinca, '19 & '21 2nds
Receive: Korver
Add some much needed shooting and dump an unused C.

Cavs send: TT, Korver, Smith, '21 2nd
Receive: Whiteside, Snell
Upgrade a C and is a good fit next to Love. Also get a younger prospect to groom into their next 3&D wing

17 Aug 2018 12:51:17
Yeah Smith is not an upgrade.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Aug 2018 14:19:12
I believe the Bucks would pass on J. R. Smith. As stated Not an upgrade, But more of a Downgrade, compared to Snell. On and off the court, And contract wise.

Trade #1

Cleveland - Denver

Cleveland trades: Collin Sexton and Tristan Thompson

Denver trades: Jamaal Murray and Gary Harris

Why for Cleveland? Acquire two talented guards that still have room to grow. They could be our backcourt of the future.

Why for Denver? Sexton gives them their point guard of the future. Thompson is added for salary purposes.

Trade #2

Cleveland - Oklahoma City

Cleveland trades: Jordan Clarkson and J. R. Smith

Oklahoma City trades: Steven Adams and Kyle Singler

Why for Cleveland? Upgrade their center position; Adams is an underrated big and fits perfectly next to Love. Singler could be a backup combo forward.

Why for Oklahoma City? They get a starting calliber shooting guard in Clarkson. Smith is added for salary purposes.

Cleveland starting line-up
PG: Jamaal Murray / George Hill
SG: Gary Harris / Kyle Korver
SF: Cedi Osman / Sam Dekker / Kyle Singler
PF: Kevin Love / Larry Nance / Channing Frye
C: Steven Adams / Ante Zizic.

They’re both bad for the other team

Denver gives up 2 proven players that could potentially be allstars at some point. The Cavs would be happy if Sexton was that good.

OKC laughs at the 2nd one. Adams is a top 15 center. Clarkson isn’t good and Smith is just a contract that could be used to dump cap space.

Agree4 Disagree4

16 Aug 2018 20:44:37
Thanks for the post Cleveland homer!

Sexton may or may not end up being as good as Murray, and Thompson for Harris is just a joke.

Why would OKC need Clarkson with Schroder in town, and why would the Thunder give up Adams, who is key to their defensive success for a selfish, streaky shooter in Smith?

Agree4 Disagree1

16 Aug 2018 23:52:00
I realize murray and Harris aren't all stars but they are high end nba players. Sexton is a gamble, and Thompson is overpaid.

Knicks get Maker, Ajinca, Okafor, NOP 2019 2nd
Pelicans get Snell, Zeller
Bucks get Noah, NY 2019 1st

NYK go all in for Irving and Butler. They will have to find a buyer for Lee to achieve that. Their seconds will help.

NOP are looking for a wing. They get Snell and a needed backup solid center with minimum cost.

MIL gets a lottery pick for eating Noah without having to pay the tax or loose much depth. Brown, DDV, Conny can share Snell's minutes, while they have Wood for third center.

Believable1 Unbelievable6

16 Aug 2018 19:57:11
Pelicans might do this but not with the picks. For zeller and snell? Knicks are going to hold that pick so tight it may turn into a diamond. It's an important piece to their rebuild. If Dolan doesn't screw it up somehow.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Aug 2018 20:00:36
Wood is not signed by bucks but I don't think the bucks would have to include maker maybe a pick.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Aug 2018 20:03:58
My mistake he just signed I see.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Aug 2018 20:20:26
@btec Pelicans fill their needs with Snell and Zeller at the cost of Ajinca and Okafor who don't even play. It's only fair to give up a 2nd for that. I know it was not the wisest thing to do, but Bucks gave a 2nd to Nets just for Zeller.

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Aug 2018 22:09:35
Pelicans need a SF/ PF or PG or SF. Wilson Chandler would be a good fit for the pelicans. Snell is more 2 than 3 and doesn't ever shoot the ball. Why trade expiring contracts, picks and take on salary for guys you don't really need? Snell would be hard to move without including a 1st.

Agree0 Disagree0

Atl get Kanter Lee Burke Noah Kornet
Knicks get Bazemore Lin Dedmon Plumlee

Talent wise atl is favorite. Kanter Lee have more to offer than Bazemore and Any other other player. Burke could challenge young as their starter. Lin is a shell of his linsanity yr. Plumlee and Noah despite 7 mil more in money are even talent wise at this point in their career.

Money wise they are both even. Both have to pay about 32 mil to 2 players in the 2019-20 season. Lee Noah equal talent wise Bazemore Plumlee

Ny does it bc both plumlee and bazemore are easier to trade than Noah which ny master plan is clear as much cap space as possible.


Ny now can now trade hardaway for Simmons Ajinca & Bazemore for Shumpert. You will stretch provision plumlee final yr to finalize NY master plan or maybe Plumlee Ajince for Asik Felicio at deadline But what ever you do is force Plumlee 28-30 min jack up his stats and make him more attractive.


Believable3 Unbelievable8

16 Aug 2018 18:49:50
Bazemore is better than Lee, Linn is better than Kornet and Burke, Plumlee is better than Noah, and Dedmond is better than Kanter. How is the talent better coming back to Atlanta? This is awful for Atlanta.

Also, why would Sacremento trade an expiring for a veteran on a big contract?

Hill not simmons lmao.

Hezonja is the sg? Dude. Do you watch the sport? He’s a 3/ 4. Stop putting big men as the shooting guard.

An with that trade the knicks are the biggest contenders to the warriors could you imagine the defense? Wow golden state wouldn’t know what to do.

17 Aug 2018 05:41:24
Shizzee the funny this is you think I’m joking. The only that is even arguable is Kanter and Dedmond and i’d take Dedmond because he can actually stay on the court in the playoffs. Kanter is to bad on defense.

Seems like the first should go to Phoenix instead of Indy.

Agree6 Disagree2

16 Aug 2018 19:21:39
Phoenix get capspace, so i can see them do this.
Warren, J Jackson, Ariza, Bridges, that's a logjam for the SF
Warren can become a bad contract before you know it.

I like this trade for Indy, It's a steal, but we need the draft pick to do this. Both Schroder and Warren are a risk. So i rather keep some flexibility unless, we get a great pay off.

Agree0 Disagree5

16 Aug 2018 19:57:07
Gasupo, you can have play Jackson and Warren at the 4 and Bridges at the 2. Ariza can probably play all 3 positions.

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Aug 2018 20:14:16
Warren averaged 19 and 5 last year and will make 12 million a year. I can't see him becoming a bad contract (unless injuries happen again, but I'd take that risk) . Maybe he's a 4th option, but even then, he's a solid value at worst.

You can never have enough wings in the NBA today. I also like Phoenix trying a lineup without a PG with Booker, Jackson, Ariza, Warren/ Bridges, and Ayton. That could be scary. Turn Booker into a James Harden type player.

Maybe I'm undervaluing Collison, but I don't think too much of him. He's a great backup, or a below average starter.

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Aug 2018 02:04:23
You'll have to explain the logic as to why any of these teams decide to shift these players around.
I've been trying to search for the logic as to how this makes each team better for it, I just don't see it.
And trust me, anything that gets Singler out of OKC without stretching him, I'm on board for, but I can't figure out why Phoenix would want him though.
