Lakers - Pacers - Thunder

Lakers gets:

Pacers gets:
21st pick (Thunder)
Future 2nd (Lakers)
Future 2nd (Lakers)

Thunder gets:
27th pick (Celtics via Lakers)
28th pick (Rockets via Lakers)

Lakers gets George as a star and have his bird rights next year.

Pacers gets a better value by getting the Thunder pick and two 2nds than the 27th and 28th Lakers offered earlier.

Thunder move back in the draft and gets some cap relief by moving Singler.

LA Lakers crazy Offseason

•Trade: Lakers-Pacers-Suns-Jazz

-LAKERS get Paul George, #4 pick (via PHO), #52 pick (via PHO), and a 2018 2nd (via IND)
-PACERS get Dante Exum, Jared Dudley, #27 and #28 picks (via LAL), and Miami 2018 1st (via PHO)
-SUNS get #2 pick (via LAL), Luol Deng, and Derrick Favors
-JAZZ get Eric Bledsoe

•Trade: Lakers-Celtics-Knicks

-LAKERS get Avery Bradley
-CELTICS get Kristaps Porzingis
-KNICKS get Julius Randle, #3 pick, Boston 2018 1st, Lakers 2018 1st (or Kings 2019 1st via BOS), and a 2019 2nd (via BOS)

•Draft De'Aaron Fox

•Free Agency:
-Re-sign Nick Young 1yr 13m
-Sign Terrence Jones 1yr 5m

PG: Fox, Clarkson, Nwaba
SG: Bradley, Young
SF: George, Ingram, Brewer
PF: Nance, Jones
C: Lopez, Zubac, Black

Then they still should have cap room for another all star in 2018.

21 Jun 2017 20:18:34
Don't think that the Lakers will be able to get back the #4 pick along with George while giving up the #2 and off loading Deng.

21 Jun 2017 22:30:56
Seems very one sided towards the Lakers for both trades. The first one you get George by and the number 4 pick by giving up your current 3 1st round picks. And in the second one you get Bradley but only give up Randell and Boston looses all of the assets that they have built up over the years, if the Lakers through in some of their own picks I would be less suspect of the trade but I would still rather have Bradley, now especially since we won't be draft in Fultz.

21 Jun 2017 07:49:24
Clippers are looking to deal Jordan. Not sure what Clippers are looking for in return (I guess depends on how their offseason goes) but don't see them getting anything too great since most good teams don't have a need for a center, he'll be 29 in a month and he only has 1 year guaranteed left (player option for 18-19 which he'll probably opt out of to get one last big contract) .

Bucks get: Deandre Jordan
Clippers get: #17, Vaughn, Henson, Teletovic

Could swap Henson and Teletovic for Monroe if he opts in. This return would be decent if Clippers were aiming to rebuild.

Celtics get: DeAndre Jordan
Clippers get: Horford, Clippers 2019 1st, Boston 2018 1st

Boston needs a rebounder at center position and still keep cap space for Hayward and other moves. Clippers get draft picks including their own back and a versatile big that is signed a year longer than Jordan.

Bulls get: DeAndre Jordan
Clippers get: Lopez, Valentine and #16 pick

Bulls get an all-nba player to add to Butler and still have cap space to make a splash in FA. Could alternatively incorporate Wade if he opts in. Clippers get a solid pick and hometown solid starting big in Lopez and young prospect in Valentine.

Cavs get: Jordan
Clippers get: Thompson and Frye

Not sure if really makes Cavs better but Jordan is bigger force on interior and Clippers get a younger big that is signed 3 more years.

Wizards: Jordan
Clippers: Gortat and Bogdanovic (S&T)

Gortat is reportedly unhappy with Wizards so they upgrade on him while Clipper get two solid players in return.

Spurs and his hometown Rockets would also be good destinations but couldn't think of a trade that would really make sense for both sides (some of these are a stretch as is) .

21 Jun 2017 11:10:57
I think the clippers want pg. In that way they might keep cp3 and blake. Give the assets to indy.
If pg leaves in 2018 they still have cp3 and blake.
Think a firstrounder in the range 12-16 is enough because lakers can't offer much.

21 Jun 2017 13:52:19
I guess dealing Jordan would be a way for Clippers to get assets to get in the George sweepstakes. I'm just not sure Paul and Griffin would base their decision to return for multiple years or not on a guy who may only be a 1year rental. If anything its the other way around, if they are able to sign Paul and Griffin they could help Clippers to resign George if they traded Jordan for him in a 3 team trade.

21 Jun 2017 00:49:06
Trades to happen soon

George and Jefferson for 27,28, Randle


#3, whatever pick they get from Sixers, Brown for Butler
Sign Hayward
IT-Bradley-Haywayd-Butler-Horford (small ball)

76ers get Porzingis and Noah
Knicks get Korkmaz, Okafor, whatever pick they keep from Celtics deal, 2018 Sixers first, and 2 2nd rounders this year


21 Jun 2017 02:49:39
The sixers could never get porzingis for that package. But Embiid, Porzingis, Simmons, Reddick, Fultz sure looks like a nice starting 5.

21 Jun 2017 03:04:48
That trade for Porzingis is a joke.

20 Jun 2017 21:19:11

Celtics receive Jimmy Butler
Bulls receive #3, 2018 Brooklyn first pick, and 2019 memphis pick

21 Jun 2017 01:55:51
Good trade could see this exact trade being done.

21 Jun 2017 22:37:22
If Boston rejected the Bulls offer of Bulter for the #3 pick straight up what makes you think they would then be willing to give up 2 more future 1st round picks for him? Plus as a Celtics fan I don't get why there are rumors about us going and trading for Butler or George. We have Bradly and Crowder at those positions respectively. What the Celtics really need is a proven power forward or a proven center that would allow Horford to move to the power forward. Don't get me wrong Butler and or Gorge would be nice to have but why give up assets for them when we could give up assets for a position like we actually need. I would rather trade for someone like Porzingus if possible.

20 Jun 2017 20:48:05
Celtics send #3, Brooklyn pick 2018, Sixers pick either 2018 or 2019, Celtics pick 2019,

Knicks send #8, Porzingis.

20 Jun 2017 21:16:22
So, for this season the Knicks move from 8 to 3 and give up Porzingis. Melo gets another year older. Give them starters for THIS year. Crowder, Bradley, #3 and Brooklyn '18 for JUST Porzingis-no #8 included.

20 Jun 2017 21:43:53
Don't think that the Celtics would be including 2 starts and a future pick for just Porzingis.

20 Jun 2017 21:55:22
Instead 8th you get Noah.

20 Jun 2017 22:02:24
They want to get rid of Melo.
For me it looks like a rebuild.

Send #3, Lakers/ Kings pick, Brooklyn 2018
Get Porzingis
Is a little bit much. But that's the only way we could get him. Don't think they have other interesting players they can add. And they don't want players.

21 Jun 2017 00:04:45
Thomas for Melo safest celtic trade.

21 Jun 2017 01:52:27
That's not a bit much, only one pick this year without knowing what next year brings for the Nets/ Lakers. Crowder, Rozier, pick #3 and another first is more reasonable.

20 Jun 2017 20:43:39
Three team deal:

To NYK - #5, #10, Crowder, the '18 or '19 pick from Philly

To BOS - Zinger

To SAC - #3, Rozier

Knicks pick Fox, Markkanen and Mitchell, add a starter and another good pick.

Boston gets a big piece to play beside Horford.

The Kings get one of Ball or Jackson, and add a young PG with upside.

20 Jun 2017 21:22:16
Can you say that any of those picks will be better than Zinger? Why not keep him and get backcourt help with #8. Knicks have to get more for Zinger. He's in huge demand. Look how many posts want him.

20 Jun 2017 22:04:35
I think the Knicks want a complete rebuild. I like the idea of the 3 Way trade. But can't imagine the Knicks want crowder.

21 Jun 2017 00:09:44
Dont forget to take Noah too.

21 Jun 2017 01:56:20
I think the Knicks would want Crowder as a replacement for Melo if/ when they move him. Look at a potential starting five of Fox, Lee, Crowder, Markkanen, Hernangomez with Mitchell, O'Quinn, and whatever they get for Melo back. They wouldn't be very good this year, but they would have an exciting future.

20 Jun 2017 18:52:46
Boston trades 3 for 5&10...

Trades 5 for future 1st rd. and player and picks Markkanen At 10.


21 Jun 2017 08:20:25
Good luck.

20 Jun 2017 18:06:01
Knicks Rebuild

NYK- Jae Crowder, #3 pick 2017, 2018 LAL/2019 SAC pick (Bos)
BOS- Kristaps Porzingis

Boston essentially trades the 1st pick, and Jae Crowder for Porzingis. They are the favorites to sign Heyward as well. This gives them a starting 5 of Horford, Porzingis, Heyward, Bradley, Thomas. Very strong team to compete in the East. The Knicks love Josh Jackson and could select him at 3.

NYK- #14 pick
MIA- Carmelo Anthony

The Heat were able to shed Bosh's contract. Melo would bring another piece to a pretty solid core. Maybe this could lure in Lebron next year.

The Knicks would have picks 3, 8, 14 this year and most likely two top 5 picks next year (their own and LAL pick if its between 2-5). They would be able to spend money in FA and attract some bigger names with a good young core.

20 Jun 2017 18:55:34
AJ- Don't think Knicks are trading Zinger. For the Knicks to trade Porzingis within division, it will cost Boston at least Crowder AND 3 #1's. Not sure if that's what you posted.

20 Jun 2017 21:23:34
Crowder and two top 5 picks seems like fair value for porzingis. I like this deal for both sides.

20 Jun 2017 10:42:47
NYK and Orl

NYK get Vucevic, Payton and the 25th pick
Draft Ferguson

Orl get Noah and 8th pick
Draft Best available forward of either Tatum or Issac and then Smith jr.

Knicks build around Porzingis with a Center whose a good passer and improved defender and add a pg who is pass first and will be like a rondo Boston type. They add Ferguson to develop into a 3-d guy all while getting rid of Noah's contract.

Orl need a couple years to restock talent so landing another top 10 pick jump starts them off, Suns rumoured high on Issac and kings on Fox so let's say for now Tatum falls to 6. Having a core of Smith jr, Tatum and Gordon could be a great restart and 2018 draft is loaded with Bigs so they could grab a Center then and have Biyombo start has his rim protection could complement Tatum and Smith jr scoring. They take on another bad Center contract but when they expire Tatum and smith jr will be due extensions.

20 Jun 2017 05:35:00
Probably won't happen, but I think it makes sense for both teams:


Celtics get #5, #10, Papagiannis

Celtics want ether Tatum or Jackson and one of those two guys would be available at #5 (1. Fultz 2. Ball 3. Fox 4. Tatum/Jackson) and they add the #10 which can be used on Markkanen or Collins. They cut Zeller's contract to clear more space to sign Hayward. Losing Crowder is tough but if they get Jackson or Tatum and Hayward then there are just too many guys playing the 2 and 3 (Hayward, Bradley, Crowder, Brown, Jackson/Tatum, Smart sometimes).

Kings get #3, Crowder, Zeller

Kings want Fox to be their guy at point guard. They trade up to make sure Pheonix doesn't take him at #4 and get Crowder who is on an incredible contract and can stet at the 3.

20 Jun 2017 05:14:37

Celtics receive Jimmy Butler

Bulls receive #3, 2018 Brooklyn pick, 2019 Memphis pick

20 Jun 2017 01:51:09
Celtics Trade: #3, 2018 BOS 1st, 2018 Brooklyn 1st, 2019 Memphis 1st, Crowder, Mickey

Receive: Butler, Vucevic, 2018 Orlando 1st

Chicago Trade: Butler and Mirotic

Receive: #5, 2018 BOS 1st, 2019 Memphis 1st, Mickey, & Hezonja

Sacramento Trade: #5 & #10

Receive: #3 and Mirotic

Orlando Trade: Vucevic, Hezonja, 2018 ORL 1st

Receive: #10, Crowder, & 2018 Brooklyn 1st

20 Jun 2017 02:11:50
Not enough value for the Kings or Bulls in my opinion. Orlando should just keep their first and the Brooklyn 1st should be going elsewhere.

20 Jun 2017 02:40:00
most delusion trade I've seen.

20 Jun 2017 00:52:40

Lakers get: picks #5 and #10
Kings get: Pick #2

Kings VERY high on J.Jackson. Take him at #2.

Lakers pick Ball or fox with #5, whoever falls.


Lakers get:George
Pacers get: #10, Russell.

Pacers get #10 pick in this years draft, a young guard with potential.
Lakers get there guy in George.

Plus, as a sixer fan, this should put the lakers in that 8-10 range next year, with a lot of kids in ingram, ball or fox, and whoever they pick at #28. Which means we keep there pick next year and boston gets kings 2019 #1(which pleasantly is protected for the top overall pick).

19 Jun 2017 22:36:30
Celtics - Knicks

Celtics gets:
8th pick

Knicks gets:
3rd pick

19 Jun 2017 22:53:03
I value Crowder over Anthony because of age, defense, contract, and role on offense.

19 Jun 2017 23:09:17
That's a huge over pay for Melo.

20 Jun 2017 01:49:12
Crowder for Melo and I'd be happy as a Knicks fan, getting 3 for 8 at the same time is an overpay by the C's. Maybe Rozier and O'Quinn get thrown in respectively as both help fill a void on the other team, but picks aren't going to work unless they're closer in value.

19 Jun 2017 16:22:35
Ideal offseason for the Philadelphia 76ers:

Move 1: Draft Markelle Fultz

Move 2: Trade Dario Saric, Jahlil Okafor, Jerryd Bayless, rights to 2016 first-round pick (26th overall) Furkan Korkmaz, Philadelphia 76ers 2018 first-round pick and 2018 Lakers/2019 Kings pick (whichever one is not traded to the Celtics) to the Indiana Pacers for Paul George

Move 3: Terminate Gerald Henderson's non-guaranteed contract

Move 4: Sign Gordon Hayward

Move 5: Sign Dion Waiters

Upon drafting Fultz (highly likely), the 76ers will be positioned wonderfully for the future with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Fultz amongst a handful of other young bodies who look primed to be solid role players in the future. Needless to say, they'll be an intriguing location for free agents to consider. In addition, they're in a unique position this offseason where they have a lot of young trade assets, future draft picks, and more cap space than any other team can imagine.

The trade package presented above would really hard for the Pacers to turn down. A combination of young players and solid picks might be better than any combination offered by another team. The combination of three extremely talents potential stars and George, in addition to the need of a shooter/scorer and maximum cap space, would have to, at minimum, intrigue Hayward to join the 76ers. Terminating Henderson's non-guaranteed contract would save the team about eight million dollars, leaving them with about 15 million dollars left to spend. A team could never have enough shooters on their roster in today's NBA, so spending that money on Waiters (a 25-year-old Philadelphia native coming off a breakout season) would only make logical sense.

These moves would leave the team's depth chart looking like this (age in parenthesis at the start of 2017-2018 season):

1. Fultz(19)/McConnell(25)
2. Hayward(27)/Waiters(25)/Stauskas(24)
3. George(27)/Covington(26)/Anderson(23)
4. Simmons(21)/Long(24)
5. Embiid(23)/Holmes(24)

That is a team with an average age of 24 years, solid depth, star talent, and unlimited potential.

19 Jun 2017 16:42:20
And Paul george leaves you guys high and dry for LA after one season.

19 Jun 2017 17:20:23
This would be a hard situation to leave on top of the extra money.

19 Jun 2017 17:20:30
Slow down there sir. what's the need to do all this in one offseason? let's see what the Sixers have first before attempting to mortgage the future for a one year rental and a decent player in Hayward.

I also love all the Lakers fans acting as if George is already a Laker. It's comical. Common sense would tell you he doesn't leave a middle of the road team to end up on a.

19 Jun 2017 17:20:41
. much worse team.

19 Jun 2017 18:55:37
Paul George has very little trade value. He's bolting next year. Sixers pass on that huge return.

I'll give the pacer okafor and a few 2nd rounders and possibly a euro. That's literally max. He's a rent a player at best.

19 Jun 2017 09:05:37
Celtics Monster Team


Celtics get: Davis

NOLA get: Brown, Crowder and Smart + 3rd Pick, 18 Nets Pick and 18 LA Pick / 19 SAC Pick

Free Agency: Sign Hayward

IT- Avery - Hayward- Al - Davis

Bench: Rozier, Zizic, Yabusele + some vets and this years 2nd rounder.

19 Jun 2017 11:18:53
People need to understand Celtics financial situation. If they renounce all their FA and waive guys like Zeller and Mickey on non-guaranteed deals they get just shy of being able to give Hayward the max. Thus in order for them to be able to add Davis too they must match his almost 24 mill contract with their outgoing salaries.

This particular trade is close salary wise but I think they make it if you consider they aren't keeping the #3 draft pick (so don't have its cap hold) .

My only concern with Pelicans trading Davis is that it would likely mean they'd have to trade Cousins too since I don't think he'd resign to a Davis-less Pelicans team with a bunch of younger guys. I think this factor makes them not deal Davis since they wouldn't get fair value on Cousins with him in final year of his contract.

19 Jun 2017 14:32:55
AD is not coming to the Celtics! Wait-trade idea- AD for IT, Bradley Crowder, Horford and #3 this year and first rounder next year. Deal?

19 Jun 2017 15:18:16
Celtic fans stop thinking AD is going anywhere for at least 3-4 years. and not to mention the number 3 pick isn't close enough. you don't trade a 22 yr old superstar who's locked up long term, wake up.

19 Jun 2017 15:24:28
Every day another Celtic fan comes up with another lame AD trade idea. And every day they will be disappointed when it NEVER happens.

19 Jun 2017 18:57:56
I still don't think that team come see close to beating lebron.

19 Jun 2017 04:48:16
Celtics 2017

Sign Gordan Hayward

Celtics Butler Griffin

Clippers 2018 Lakers pick Horford

Bulls 3rd pick Bradley Crowder

19 Jun 2017 03:24:30
Knicks/ Sixers

To NYK - #1, Saric

To PHI - Zinger

Everyone seems to think Boston finished up the Sixers deal early as they have another move waiting, imagine if Philly's the one that drops the other shoe.

Philly has previously discussed playing Simmons at the point, and Lowry has some interest in coming home. The Sixers pull off the coup of landing Zinger, who along with Embiid make a versatile twin towers like the league has never seen before.

Moving Zinger is a lot to stomached for Knicks fans, but they land the odds on favorites to land the ROY in the NBA from both this past year (Saric) and this year coming (Fultz) .
