18 Feb 2019 11:10:28
Dallas match.

18 Feb 2019 12:49:49
They could sign T Harris for a 100M 4year deal and D Rose 14M 2 year deal, if Dallas match the offer.

18 Feb 2019 15:27:34
Kings are all over that first part. But not sure how they pull that off because the Nets will not know if Crabbe is opting in or out for the 2019-20 season on draft day. Most likely he is, but are tge Nets willing to be stuck with the Kings draft selection if Crabbe opts out?

18 Feb 2019 16:42:05
You think Dallas gave up DSJ and two future 1st to have Porzingis on their roster (not playing) for the rest of this season? He isn't going anywhere.

18 Feb 2019 17:23:31
Crabbe is making 18.5 M. next year. Why would he opt out?

18 Feb 2019 17:28:01
Crabbe opting out would be very shocking. I can't see any situation where he does that.

18 Feb 2019 19:58:13
If Crabbe opted out of 18.5 he wouldn't make that much the rest of his career.

17 Feb 2019 19:15:36
Got to have plan B, If knicks fail to land Williamson (Cleveland), Durant Resign and Irving Cousins sign (Lakers) Leonard (Clippers). Thompson Walker Vucevic resign. Butler and Harris resign

After Knicks draft Morant 2nd, trade DSJ to Celtics for 18th, Ntilikina 51 to Hawks for 35 43 46. Knox for Langford

Add 6 very good vets
Green Ariza Milsap Jordan Gay Young
2 yr 28 mil.


18 Feb 2019 09:01:07
I would keep Knox over Langford.

18 Feb 2019 19:14:39
Your free agency predictions seem accurate to me except Kyrie. He would look like such an idiot going to LA. He cried his way out of Cleveland because he wanted to be the man, and gave up another trip to finals with Cleveland. 2 years later he is going to run back to LeBron, no way. He's not going to NY with Durant either like rumors are saying. He would be Durant's side kick there. He will stay in Boston and AD will join him. He will be AD's side kick, but since he was there 1st he can say AD came to play beside him.

18 Feb 2019 23:01:46
Nick go celtics 🤣.

14 Feb 2019 09:50:28
MIL 2019 season

I don't know if Bucks can sign a top FA next season but here's how they can improve the team and keep building a championship contender

I can only see a possible FA in Kemba Walker.

sign Kemba to a 4yr/100mil contract including player option on final year

waive George Hill



MIL sends Tony Snell & 1st round pick protected

ATL sends Dewayne Dedmon (s&t 2yr/12mil)


MIL get Elfrid Payton (s&t), 1yr/5mil

NOLA get Ersan Ilyasova & 2 2nd rd picks

sign Marcus Morris 3yr/30mil
sign Jeremy Lamb 2yr/10mil

resign their core (Middleton, Brogdon, Lopez & Mirotic)

2019-2020 Bucks go for championship

Pg Walker/Payton
Sg Middleton/Divicenzo
Sf Morris/Lamb/Connaughton
Pf Giannis/Mirotic
Ce Lopez/Wilson/Dedmon

14 Feb 2019 12:53:33
And be about $30 mil over the luxury tax with no future draft picks. Good luck with that.

14 Feb 2019 13:18:17
Walker would be a great fit in Milwaukee
Little chance he comes, Clippers or NY are going to pursuit him after Leonard and KD have made their decision and i think a bigger market still has an advantage.

14 Feb 2019 16:16:42
Pels would never agree. You can keep Ilyasova.

14 Feb 2019 16:49:37
No way Dedmon is worth Snell and a 1st rd pick!

14 Feb 2019 18:11:54
If Walker ever leaves Charlotte it's for my, jordan won't let him walk.

14 Feb 2019 00:56:58
Boston, plan B


NY: Irving

Indy: G Hayward+ Ntilikina

Boston: (Evans+ Bogdanovic+ C Joseph)+ 2rnd pick NY 2020

boston: Vucevic
Orlando: Horford+ 1rnd pick Clippers

3)Boston- Minnesota
Boston: Saric
Minny:Yabusele+1rnd pick Boston 2019+ 2rnd pick NY 2020+ 2rnd pick Atlanta 2019

Sac pick: Darius Garland
sign: Bogdanovic
resign: T Rozier

C: Vucevic/R williams
PF: Saric/Theis/ Oyeleye
SF: Tatum/ Bogdanovic
SG:J Brown/M Smart/RJ Hunter
PG: T Rozier/ Garland/Wanamaker

14 Feb 2019 01:59:35
The first trade can’t happen.

14 Feb 2019 02:43:43
Why wouldn’t the Knicks just sign him straight up and keep the pick and frank?

14 Feb 2019 05:49:50
The Magic trade is impossible. The deadline has passed and Vucevic is an UFA in the off-season.

13 Feb 2019 19:28:47
Knicks need to be creative to resign Jordan while adding 2 super max

Knox to Grizz for Reddish


Knox and Jackson great forward combo eventually will play PF and center

DSJ to Heat for Langford


Garland might go sooner, heat need a PG, this is fair value.

Ntilikina Trier to Hawks for Paschall-35 Washington-43 M.Howard-46


Hawks could win 40 games next yr with solid depth.

This clear 12 mil to resign DeAndre Jordan 2yr 28mil and Irving and Durant sign 2yr 70 mil (33mil-2019 & 37mil-2020 player opt) before signing rookies contracts


Lotto Draft
Wizards- Little Wall to Pacers for Holiday 23

13 Feb 2019 20:34:02
Why would Memphis do that?

This is just so bad overall.

13 Feb 2019 23:38:00
That draft has so many players going too early.

14 Feb 2019 01:44:53

Maybe Detriot or Pelicans Culver or Johnson instead of Reddish. Knicks need a 3D sg better than Dotson.

14 Feb 2019 01:57:24
So memphis drafts a younger better shooter and trades the wing they needed for years for Knox? Lol.

14 Feb 2019 06:31:01
Fernando, Okpala, Hachimura and Alexander Walker will not be top 10 picks.

14 Feb 2019 07:52:44
Knox is 19 going to be 20 next yr shelfish.

11 Feb 2019 14:14:51
On draft day

Boston: A Davis+McDermott

NO: Tatum+J brown+Sac+1rnd pick Memphis 2020+ 1rnd pick clippers 2020

Indy: G Hayward+ 1rnd pick Boston 2019+ 2rnd pick Atlanta 2020

Trade: Yabusele, wanamaker and Ojeleye for T Parker
Horford Opt out and sign a new 60M 4year deal
resign Irving to a max contract
sign Bullock with the mid lvl exeption
Sign: D Carroll to vet min
Let Rozier Walk

C:Baynes/R Williams/Horford
PF: A Davis/ A Horford/Theis
Sf:McDermott/Bullock/D Carroll
SG: Smart/Bullock/RJ Hunter
PG: Irving/T Parker/Dozier

11 Feb 2019 14:30:35
Davis will leave.

11 Feb 2019 14:40:10
Honestly, I don’t know how that roster looks like a Championship contender to me. When guys like Smart or McDermott are starters, that doesn’t scream NBA Finals.

As much as Boston (and NY, and LA, and. ) want Davis, if you look at the roster you have leftover after the deal, is it worth giving up all those assets for him? Love AD’s skills, but dude has won exactly one playoff series.

11 Feb 2019 14:52:32
I am trying to figure out how Indy is taking on $25 mil in salary on draft day when they are already over the salary cap.

So let's push this back to after July 1st, the. why is Indy taking on A salary dump when they have their oen FAs to resign? The draft picks aren't all that.

11 Feb 2019 14:56:54
@ Trangle

I agree, it's a high price. But, LA, clippers and NY are all going to bid high.

So Boston has a choice, let Irving walk en rebuilt around Tatum and J Brown, while they pay horford and Hayward or trade the young assets and Hayward for another deep run.

A Davis-Irving is a good fundament for a great team. (Malone-stocton made it to the finals twice)
And that's a descent bench. Horford would be a great sixth man and bullock is a good 3 and D guy.

Smart and McDermott doesn't scream finals, but those two are good roll players. smart does all the dirty work and McDermott is a good shooter.

11 Feb 2019 17:16:21
Indy wouldn't be in this deal.

11 Feb 2019 17:23:52
I think trading Brown, Tatum, and Hayward would be a huge mistake. They go from one of the deepest wing rotations in the NBA, to maybe one of the worst. They need to keep one of those three.

11 Feb 2019 19:25:30
Gasupo- malone and Stockton were iron men. Kyrie and AD are both missing 10 plus games a year.

11 Feb 2019 22:27:02
I think clippers Lakers and Knicks all better chance to resign him. Because after trade they have big markets and cap space to sign players. Or lakers because if lbj. With Irving and Davis its not enough. It's a lil upgrade over davis and holiday. With James and Davis they have right cap to sign right players. Or with cippers and Knicks would have enough for two slots. If clippers can dump gallinari which they can. I put bulls and bucks better option think davis will leave celtics unless they can trade Heyward.

12 Feb 2019 17:07:43
Stopped really thinking when I saw the pacers taking Hayward’s horrific contract for basically two seconds. Cool. Sounds reasonable.

12 Feb 2019 21:21:40
Even though its a bit risky and awkward, i am glad Pels did not trade AD to Lakers. I doubt they will in July also. Pels need to see what they have in Okafor, Williams and a couple others and see what the draft positions are.

07 Feb 2019 05:45:26

07 Feb 2019 06:06:06
Jay aren't you a sixers fan. Markieff is done for the yr.

06 Feb 2019 04:48:46

Prince/Dedmon for Fultz, '19 1st

Simmons/JJ/Butler/Prince/Embiid in crunch time would be a solid lineup for Philly

Hawks take a chance on Fultz and get the 1st rounder to help the rebuild.

05 Feb 2019 14:14:06
Pacers trade Evans, McDermott, Leaf, and Anigbogu.

Atlanta trades Bazemore, Prince, and Huerter.

05 Feb 2019 17:12:13
What does Atlanta get for the future?

05 Feb 2019 17:59:54
Prince will probably cost you a first and why would Atlanta want to deal Heurter?

05 Feb 2019 18:39:24
Someone thinks the players at the end of Indiana's bench have value.

05 Feb 2019 07:29:52
Hawks Kings

Hawks trade: K.Bazemore T.Prince

Kings trade: Z.Randolf B.Mclemore

05 Feb 2019 13:35:36
Hawks looking for picks if they’re dealing those two, not cap relief.

05 Feb 2019 04:33:03
Hawks get: Timofey Mozgov and a 2020 1st round pick top 20 protected (via Thunder)

Magic get: Jeremy Lin

Hawks take on an extra years salary for the pick
Magic get a PG to help a push into the playoffs and gain salary relief for the summer to go after a long term PG option in FA.

05 Feb 2019 05:06:43
Always thought Lin for Ross + 2nd rounder was a no brainer trade deadline deal.

04 Feb 2019 19:52:35
Jordan for Maker Hill

Knicks release Hill he returns to bucks April 7.

Mathews for Chandler Smith

Knicks release Hill he returns to Sixers April 7

Mudiay Vonleh Thomas
Muscala Patton McConnell 1st

Knicks will put Sixers in finals

2 max contracts Irving and Durant
Knicks sign Lopez Brothers for mle
Sixers 1ST and 2020 NY 1ST for Hawks 1st


04 Feb 2019 22:20:43
According to Spotrac George Hill's 2020 salary ($18 mil) becomes fully guarenteed if waived on or before July 2nd 2019. After that date he can be waived and only cost $1 Mil on the 2020 salary cap.

So this is blownup from the start, unless you want the knicks to lose a max cap slot for dead money.

04 Feb 2019 22:34:39
There are some people that are acutely clueless. I nearly spit out my coffee laughing at a few replies.

05 Feb 2019 03:35:10
@shizzee and @Fredman Disregard my response, screen bounced me to this thread, was meant for next post down.

03 Feb 2019 15:15:06

Hawks get Korkmaz, Frank Jackson, Kings and Bulls 2019 2nd rounders both from PHI
Pelicans get Chandler, Fultz, Smith, Muscala, Patton, 2019 1st rounder from PHI, and 2021 Heat and Sixers first rounders
Sixers get Holiday, Mirotic, and Taurean Prince.

Only works if NOP was bluffing about not wanting to trade Holiday

03 Feb 2019 17:28:57
Pels do that quick.

03 Feb 2019 17:34:24
That is truly horrible for NOLA.

03 Feb 2019 20:08:33
WHy? They get 3 first round picks and 2 guy’s drafted in the lottery in the past 2 years.

03 Feb 2019 04:57:19
Three team deal

To HOU - Matthews

To ATL - Knight, Chriss, 2019 1st from Houston

To NYK - Lin, J. Anderson 2021 2nd from Houston

Houston is looking for a 3 and D wing. Instead of potentially being tied to Bazemore’s large salary next year, they ease their cap hit for 2020 by moving Knight and get an expiring but very productive Matthews.

Hawks take on Knight’s salary, but get the 1st they were looking for.

Knicks keep cap flexibility and add a small asset in the future 2nd.

03 Feb 2019 05:32:52
Seems easier to do a Lin for Knight + 1st rounder deal than bringing Houston into it.

03 Feb 2019 05:44:19
Houston is looking for 3 and D, not another PG like Lin. That’s why the Knicks are involved.

02 Feb 2019 21:55:24
Hawks:Thon Maker, George Hill, Sterling Brown, 2020 2nd

Bucks:Kent Bazemore, Dwayne Dedman, Jeremy Lin, Tyler Dorsey.

02 Feb 2019 23:14:42
Hawks can get more than that from other playoff teams. Each player by themselves will garner a 2nd rounder from someone.

01 Feb 2019 00:13:48
Nice trade young superstars at backcourt and frontcourt with


With the 2 x 1st in disuccsion I think there are still negotiations to have one 1st and Bruke or 2 1st and Ntilikina. A defense guard would be a nice complent!

I would offer Hardaway to Houston, Chriss could be a nice young complent to Prozingis!

- Hardaway, Broekhoff
- Chriss, Knight

And I would offer Barnes to Kings for lottery protected pic and use it to offer Atlanta since they offer Prince!

- McLemore, future 1st lottery protected (Kings)
- Prince, Shumpert
- Barnes

The young lineup for Mavs would complemented and they would have the CAP to add one or two star or max players like Irving, Walker, Vucevics or Cousins or maybe another wing like Leonard or Butler.



01 Feb 2019 04:04:48
Kings are not taking Barnes and giving up a future 1st.

31 Jan 2019 16:21:08
Mavs would have used their CAP and the 1st picks for 19 and 21 but would have a young, fast team with talent to become a playoff team and to go Forward from there in the next 3 years. And to be fair to get Drummond and Wiggins or one of them would be a good move. But I think Detroit and Minnesota need to some changes because they are stuck as discussed.

As described in the proposales before the mainmain moves would with some others asset to make it happen would be:

- Drummond, Wiggins

- 2 x st and McLemore and 40m CAP

- Jordan and Bazemore and CAP

- CAP and the 1st 2019 unprotected

- Barnes

Mavs roster would promise some nice games and to become a good Playoff Team to see how to look for more:

Drummond, Dieng
Prince, Leuer/Kleber
Wiggins, Finney-Smith
Doncic, Harris
Smith, Brunson

31 Jan 2019 17:16:43
That team is horrible defensively. Prince is their best defender.

31 Jan 2019 18:55:41
So its basically Jordan and Barnes for Drummond and Wiggins. With Drummond>Jordan and Wiggins>Barnes, Dallas is going to have to come with more than just that.

FYI. Kings want no part of Barnes anyways.

31 Jan 2019 22:54:41
Kings will welcome Barnes. Dude y you act like the kings just can sign anyone. Bazemore hardaway Barnes porter would be great especially just giving expiring contracts for them. Like really who the kings going to sign. With one those players they can be 7th seed.

31 Jan 2019 23:24:36
I never said the Kings would sign a top tier FA with their cap space.

But that does not mean we have to be like the Knicks and sign/ take on "overpaid" talent.

Kings are going to be like they were last season, wait the free agency period out, force teams to use cap space by matching offers on RFAs and then get a starter and top bench player for $10 mil/ year.

Kings win games with pace and depth, not star talent.

01 Feb 2019 04:09:44
Early prediction. After other teams have spent their cap space.

Vucevic 3 yrs $18 mil per
Mirotic 3 years $15 mil per

And Kings would still have arou d $15 mil in cap space to take on salary for draft picks.

31 Jan 2019 16:10:17
Mavs should not bet so much on grade A free agents, there are more traditional places to join for them like LA or NY or to stay on successful Teams.

Which young good player could reach grade A and work out for Mavs in the future? And may the available?

Drummond may available and Detroit is "stuck" midterm and not a Play off Team.

I like the "traditional xenter" to Play "spectacular". Drummond is quick and may learn to shoot if he become "free".

Detroit may clear CAP midterm and need some backcourt scoring. Atlanta what's to rebuild with young players and clear CAP as well.

- Matthews, Spalding and Mavs 1st 2019 without protection (instead top 5 protection)

- Drummond, Leuer, Prince

- Jordan, Bazemore

31 Jan 2019 19:07:46
Jordan doesn't solve the pistons problems only hurts the offense which is there issue.

31 Jan 2019 05:17:50

•Kings get Jeremy Lin, Trevor Ariza, and Vince Carter
Pg. Fox, Lin, Mason
Sg. Hield, Shumpert, Carter
Sf. Ariza, Bogdanovic, Jackson
Pf. Bjelica, Bagley, Giles
C. WCS, Koufos

•Hawks get Yogi Ferrell, Zach Randolph, and a 2nd rd pick (via Kings)
-Get expiring and a 2nd rd pick (better than nothing) for Lin (upcoming free agent)

•Wizards get Ben McLemore and Skal Labissiere
-Get out of the luxury tax.

31 Jan 2019 17:51:37
Kings need a young wing that’s it, not a bunch of 30 something or even 40 something players. No idea why everyone thinks Lin helps them vs what they have now, only thing vlade should be thinking about is how to land an overpriced wing before deadline, knowing they ain’t making the playoffs without a move and they aren’t landing a marquee wing free agent by giving them a tour of the K street mall.

29 Jan 2019 07:29:55

Sixers say no. Seems they need to blown away by an offer to move on from Fultz. Not sure I agree with that outlook, but i don't see the kid every day either.
