Hou: Robert Williams, Yabusele, #14 pick
Bos: Capela, Conley
Mem: Smart, #20 pick

If Horford leaves, Bos will have at least 20mil in cap space. This would be close to the in salary diff.
Resign Morris and Rozier

This fills voids and keeps them top 4 in east.

19 Jun 2019 00:56:49
How about this trade with York wanting Kyle Irving , and Boston wanting something for him not lose anything and Houston issues how about this trade

Knicks get
Pg Irving
Sf Hayward
C Howard

Boston gets
Pg Paul
Pg mudley
Pf portis
C nene
4 pick jr Barrett

Houston gets
9 pick c Hayes
Pf Parker which they can opt out of and free up 20 million under the cap
C Mahimi expiring contract
Pg rosier
Wizards get
14 huchimora
20 bo bo
51 tacko fall
Sf Kevin Knox
Pg Dennis smith

Now do the money it works under the cap and I know a lot of thing would have to fall right make this trade but it would work for all teams

19 Jun 2019 03:11:12
Why do the Knicks do that? Kyrie is a free agent and they have space. Not to mention that Houston is getting way to good a deal. If they’re saving that kind of money, they should be giving up picks.

19 Jun 2019 05:06:46
Can’t sign and trade with other players from your current team involved. How many times does this need to be pointed out?!

18 Jun 2019 18:30:46
Ad is gone, Celtics could make this trades:

BOS gets: M. Conley
MEM gets: G.Hayward +14. Pick 2019, 20. Pick 2019, Celtics Pick 2020

BOS gets: B.Beal
WAS: M. Smart and J.Brown + Memphis Pick

Celtics Team 2019/2020


18 Jun 2019 18:34:49
You just saw what Lakers paid for Anthony Davis, right? Guess what does for what Washington can ask for in return for Beal.

18 Jun 2019 21:24:44
I saw brooklyn overpay for pierce and KG. didn't affect other trades.

18 Jun 2019 21:45:06
Both trades are good for the Celtics but really bad for the other. Hayward as to be unloaded with at least two 1st rounders (look at the Crabbe deal) . So the value of Conley is just a late first? Common.

19 Jun 2019 00:52:59
I don’t think the two would be linked. AD is viewed as a generational talent, the price on him was going to be astronomical. Beal is a nice guard, but no one is putting him near the top 10 players in the league, let alone a “generational” player.

18 Jun 2019 14:04:40
Celtics have to many picks and not enough room for players, looking to trade away some assests...

Celtics- Capela,2020 first unprotected, 2021 favorable swap rights to Celtics, 2022 top 8 protected
Rockets- Smart,14,20

18 Jun 2019 15:03:29
This is ridiculous.

18 Jun 2019 20:39:09
Capela is the most overrated player on this site. Smart has more value than him. If anyone actually watches basketball you would know that he disappeared in the playoffs and is on a long contract that the Rockets wouldn't mind gettijg out of. He fits Tatum and Browns timeline and has room at 25 to grow but is not worth anything more than smart and a late round pick.

17 Jun 2019 23:16:20
Hou- Bos - Orl
Houston receives - Hayward , Mosgov (exp), Brown , 20th pick , 22nd pick

Boston receives - Capela , Fournier

Orlando receives- Paul

18 Jun 2019 00:19:08
Think magic say no. He is old, overpaid, and injured a lot.

18 Jun 2019 03:14:00
Hard pass from Boston.

18 Jun 2019 14:07:24
Brown has more value than Capela and Fournier straight up. You add the 20th and 22nd pick it becomes on top of loosing brown ainge is shipping of Hayward and loosing assets. Capela is awful, dissapeared in the playoffs and the Celtics should only think about acquiring him because he has some room at 25 for improvement. This deal is awful for the Celtics though.

17 Jun 2019 20:38:59
The Lakers ...

Since probably Irving will really sign in Brooklyn to have is own team and to try a frist ring with the young core Lakers may target Walker as PG and it would may a lot of sense.

So Dallas goes young and offer Russell a max, maybe Brooklyn wants a trade exception in a sign & trade.

So Mavs go young in a crazy future:

1: Draft Day
1.1 Since Boston want to exchange some of their 1st picks:
- Boston: Jackson, future 1st
- Dallas: #20

1.2 Cleveland rebuilds:
- Cleveland: Lee (release), #37
- Dallas: J.R. (release him)

1.3 Detroit is stack in CAP and need scoring on the backcourt to allow Jackson, Griffin to win:
- Detroit: Powell and a C at #20, Hardaway (& young wing with their #15)
- Dallas: Drummond, Thomas

I think it is a win - win, Mavs get a perfect partner for Porzee and Detoit 2 wings and 2 centers.

2: Free agency:
2.1 Sign (and trade ?)
- Brooklyn: 14m trade exception
- Dallas: S&T Russell 5y max
2.2 Sign Oubre and overpay him to lure him away from Suns.
- Dallas: Oubre Jr. (2+1y 60m)

Drummond, Holmes
Porzee, Maxi
Oubre, FinneyS
Doncic, Thomas
Russell, Brunson

17 Jun 2019 20:46:33
I would go after Danny Green instead of Oubre to had some defense on the wing plus he’ll be cheaper


17 Jun 2019 21:19:48
Everything being reported has the Cavs getting a 1st outs of jr and in general a 2nd round pick doesn’t cost 6 million.

17 Jun 2019 22:38:16
Small wrinkle. Teams have to use all their cap space before they can use any trade exceptions. So things would have to be reordered in order to get Dlo on a 5 year S&T.

17 Jun 2019 23:16:43
Cuban should be happy because LA is screwed right?

17 Jun 2019 23:35:03
Oubre and Russell will both be in Phx next season. Dallas has got a decent free agent to sign with them in 20 years.

16 Jun 2019 16:59:43
Celtics - Clippers

Boston send Al Horford and Gordon Hayward to LA for Lou Williams

Sign Demarcus Cousins

16 Jun 2019 17:28:05
I like the Cousins part, but Williams will be 33 when the season starts. Doesn't fit the time line for Boston. Maybe flip a first or two for him, but not Horford and Hayward.

16 Jun 2019 23:35:06
What timeline? Celtics peaked. Pearly all down hill and pretty fast.

17 Jun 2019 01:05:16
Notdrainer- they can win 40 in east with roster today without kyrie. That's playoffs without Heyward improving or 3 picks adding help.

16 Jun 2019 15:43:39
Celtics loose Kyrie, Rozier, Horford opts in, Morris resigns

Celtics- Westbrook
Thunder- Smart, Brown, 14

Celtics- Capela, Eric Gordon
Rockets- Horford, 20, 22

Celtics lineup-
Eric Gordon
Tatum/ Hayward

16 Jun 2019 15:50:24
Things are bad enough in Boston without Westbrook.

16 Jun 2019 23:36:58
Agreed. Boston is looking pretty much like a year down. Keep a couple young ones but the rest clearly isn’t working.

16 Jun 2019 15:40:31
Celtics loose Kyrie, Rozier, Horford opts in, resign morris

Celtics- Mike Conely
Grizzlies- Hayward, pick 14, Celtics 2020 pick top 14 protected until 2023 than unprotected

Celtics- Capela
Rockets- Smart, 20,22

Celtics lineup-

16 Jun 2019 15:53:26
The Picks might be enough to unload Hayward. But you'll never get a valuable player on top.

16 Jun 2019 11:21:22
AD is a Laker, Kyrie is as good as gone so this could work fir the Celtics

Draft: Trade up for Coby White. He is a great player and can run a Team.


Suns get: Rights for Terry Rozier, 14. Pick and 22. Pick

Celtics get: 6. Pick and draft Coby White

With the 20. Pick the Celtics select Kevin Porter Jr and with the 51. Pick Boston select Talen Horton-Tucker

Free Agency:


- Al Horford to 3 year 60 Million deal.
- IT 1year VetMin
- Reggie Bullock 1year VetMin
- JaMychal Green 1 year 7 Million

Celtics 2019/2020

PG: White/ Thomas/Wanamaker
SG: Brown/Smart/Bullock
SF: Hayward/Porter/Horton-Tucker
PF: Tatum/ Green/Ojeleye

16 Jun 2019 12:24:46
The suns have cap space and Rozier is a free agent.

16 Jun 2019 13:59:14
If Sun keep the cap hold for the Bird rights to Obure, the Suns only have around $14 mil in cap space - cap hold for 6th pick. Rozier will want more than that.

16 Jun 2019 15:06:47
Friedman suns can trade Jackson Warren and Johnson's expiring contract which would open up another 35 million. If they resign oubre Jackson and Warren are almost guaranteed to go.

16 Jun 2019 15:23:19
That 35 million is of course depending on what they take back in the trade. Let's be honest though about the celtics. Danny singe if overrated as a gm. Yes he was able to fleece the nets, and gain all kinds of picks, but he hasn't done a single thing with any of his assets. out of everything he's acquired all he has to show for it is Tatum who really is overrated as well thanks to Celtic fans and a decent rookie year. Lived singe as a player but it's time to move on from all the celtic trade talk. It's been 5 or 6 years of adding picks and not 1 legit trade to bring someone in.

16 Jun 2019 15:44:15
What assets are the Suns going to use to dump $35 mil in salary? Tje #6 pick? Come on.

16 Jun 2019 16:04:20
Fredman, Warren and Jackson would be easy to get off of.

16 Jun 2019 17:52:36
Fredman don't be that guy. You use to post stuff that made sense now the majority of your stuff makes u look like a fool. Warren could easily be traded for a first round pick, Jackson at worst could fetch a late first, and Johnson's expiring contract could prob be gone for the bucks future first since it's an expiring deal. The fact is suns could easily unload that money, but I doubt they give up Warren and Jackson for pretty much nothing. More likely they trade one or both for a better player and use johnsons expiring to match salary.

15 Jun 2019 21:14:18
Okc blows it up.

Okc/ bos

Okc:al horford, jaylen brown, 14 and 20th overall

Bos: Russell Westbrook

Okc/ lal

Okc Brandon Ingram, kyle kuzma, salary filler, 4th pick

Okc/ Dallas

Okc hardaway, lee, 2020 1st, 2nd rnd pick


15 Jun 2019 21:29:06
No one is giving up all that for Westbrook.

15 Jun 2019 22:46:58
Was the 2nd and 3rd trades for PG13 and Adams, respectively?

16 Jun 2019 09:08:41
Dallas trade can't happen bc they can't trade 3 picks in a row so knowledge the only thing that is blow up is your bathroom from crappy ideas.

13 Jun 2019 21:45:47
Boston - 18th pick

Pacers - G. Hayward, 2nd rd pick, maybe future pick as well

What ya think?

13 Jun 2019 22:13:34
Interesting idea. If Boston moves Hayward it will be a salary dump. Indy might be able to swap 22 for 18 and future 2nd to get him. I think Hayward still has some good years ahead of him, and I would love to see him in Indy.

13 Jun 2019 23:24:30
I think not.

14 Jun 2019 01:09:24
Hayward garbgarbagarbgarbaggarbgarbagarbgarbage like super.

14 Jun 2019 03:02:28
Lmao! Pacers giving away #18 pick for a guy (who I like) making $32m the next three years with a 11.5pt/ 4.5rb/ 3.8ast slash line?

Celts want to dump salary.

Pacers get: Hayward and #14 pick.
Celtics get: McDermott and future 2nd round pick.

Without something close to that, Pacers would be crazy to take on that contract.

14 Jun 2019 19:03:33
The Pacers have $44mm in cap space, but after signing Bojan Bogdanovich, they'll have $24mm. And that's to sign 6 players, so they can't afford to take on salary.

13 Jun 2019 21:20:36
Kings Rockets Celtics


Kings: Horford

Rockets: Cauley-Stein

Celtics: Capella

I'm aware
1.Cauley-Stein/Horford might be (free agent or a restricted depending on Kings and Horford)

Why it works:
Kings: Will focus on the center position in FA (Vucivec Rumored) Horford comes cheaper and will be expiring.If they restrict Cauley-Stein caphold of 12Mill actually have 24Mill available in FA

Celtics: In talks with Rockets for Capella. Horford is owed 30M next season (OptsIn). Cap needed to resign Rozier now that Irving has opted out. Needs Improved depth

Rockets: Need Cap relief. CP3 contract maybe used for Cap relief but it will need to be attached to major assets to be moved.

13 Jun 2019 21:26:10
Word on the word on the street is WCS will be offered a QO. If he declines and becomes a RFA, his QO will be pulled as soon as the Kings sign another big man. Kings options just got larger as Valacunius just opted out of his deal with the Grizzlies.

13 Jun 2019 03:40:02
Crazy Celtic offseason. but the numbers work.

Celtics S&T Irving to Nets. Celtics get a $35 mil trade exception.

Horford opts in. Celtics trade Horford, Brown, Memphis pick and #22 to New Orleans for Anthony Davis. Meets Griffins trade expectation.

Celtics use their new trade exception and #20 to Charlotte as part of a S&T for Kemba Walker.

Celtics match any offer on Rozier.

Use pick #14 for Brandon Clarke or Rui Hachimura

Walker/ Rozier
Hayward/ Smart
Tatum/ Ojeleye
Davis/ (ClarkeHachimura)
Baynes/ Williams

Does Davis really walk away from that team?

13 Jun 2019 05:47:00
W/ O Tatum I’d rather have the other packages.
Not sure I understand the S/ T from Brooklyn’s POV, are they unloading some salary?
If the Hornets are willing to max Kemba, I’d bet they think he’s worth more than just the 20th pick, even at that salary. And yeah, that team isn’t impressive enough to keep him a place he doesn’t want to be imo.

13 Jun 2019 07:38:03
Like supercollider said have no talent.

13 Jun 2019 12:21:49
Why would the Nets, who are looking to compete with the C’s in the Atlantic, help them create a trade exception so they can get another star when they could just sign Kyrie outright?

There was an article yesterday that explained why S&T’s have become so rare. With minimal benefit to the player or the teams, major S&T’s only make sense if the team receiving the player has no cap space to sign the player outright. The Nets have the space.

11 Jun 2019 17:34:37
Pels - Bradley Beal, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Memphis Pick

Celtics - Anthony Davis, E’twann Moore

Wizards - Marcus Smart, Frank Jackson, Solomon Hill, picks 14,20 from Boston.

11 Jun 2019 18:17:18
Not enough for Beal.

11 Jun 2019 19:17:17
Too much for Davis and Moore for the Celtics to give up.

11 Jun 2019 08:31:07

Rockets- Hayward, Jackson (exp), 15th pick


Pistons- Paul, J.Brown


Celtics- Drummond, B.Brown


10 Jun 2019 19:34:26
The New Orleans Pelicans are seeking a current All-Star, a future one and two first-round picks in exchange for Anthony Davis, and they would prefer the framework of a trade to be in place before the draft,  according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Besides Boston the only other team that can do that would be San Antonio.

10 Jun 2019 19:52:20
Who’s the future all star San Antonio has to offer?

10 Jun 2019 20:16:48
Forbes showed a lot this season. If not, they have young assets to get a third teams future star.

10 Jun 2019 20:21:13
Gobert+Mitchell+2 1sts?

10 Jun 2019 20:23:40
Olapido +Sabonis +picks?

10 Jun 2019 20:27:43
Lowry+ Siakim + picks?

10 Jun 2019 22:04:28
Kind of offering all that on a one year rental. Kwahi trade packages weren't that good.

11 Jun 2019 00:34:14
They had better offer from Lakers around the same young players LA is offering for Davis. Pop didn’t want him on the Lakers or in the west period.

11 Jun 2019 02:26:10
Middleton, Brogdon, and 2 1st from the Buck's.


11 Jun 2019 04:18:36
The Toronto and Utah trades are way too much for Davis. I’m not sure I’d give up either Utah player, let alone both.

11 Jun 2019 12:11:43
Torque, Brogdon would have to want to sign with New Orleans. Not seeing that. Middleton is also a UFA once he opts out. Also, not sure how the Giannis and AD pairing would work especially with the Bucks best 2 shooters gone to the Pelicans.

10 Jun 2019 17:37:44
According to Woj this morning, Pelicans are open to doing multi-team deals for Davis. Got me thinking. Okc desperately needs shooting and could maybe cut salary while helping Pelicans in their return for Davis.

If Okc will take Hayward and minimum contracts from Boston while sending Dre to Boston and Adams + the 21st pick to the Pelicans, that could help everyone. Maybe?


10 Jun 2019 18:18:29
Thoughts? Pelicans are trying to cast a wider net in order to get more for Davis.

Seriously doubt Adams is in the Pelicans plans. I think they are looking at other teams to see what pieces like Lonzo Ball or Marcus Smart or Dennis Smith Jr may bring back.

10 Jun 2019 10:03:08

BOS: Mike Conley

MEM: Harrison Barnes (exp), 14th pick BOS

SAC: Gordon Hayward, Jonas Valanciunas (exp) & MEM 1st from BOS

10 Jun 2019 12:09:23
Conley will be 32 when the season starts and doesn't fit Boston's time line. The Celtics are not going to pay big for him. More likely they'll go cheap and grab someone on the level of Rubio, Payton or Reggie Jackson to buy time until they can get a big-timer on board.

10 Jun 2019 13:55:48
Super- celts want to win now.

10 Jun 2019 15:52:12
Why should the Kings and the Grizzlies do that? Hayward is right now on the level of an above average bench player but paid like a superstar. After seeing the Nets shed 18 million for 2 1st rounders the Celtics have to send minimum 3. But getting a quality player as well is crazy.

Summary: Grizzlies don't get enough for Conley and Kings way too less for taking Hayward.

10 Jun 2019 18:31:00
As a Kings fan, I would probably jump all over that. Still leaves the Kings about $15 mil in cap space to throw at Ariza or Oubre.

As for Nets using 2 1sts to shed salary, a large portion of that 2nd 1st rounder is price paid to get Prince in return.

11 Jun 2019 07:04:41
Kings jump all over this in a heartbeat.

10 Jun 2019 04:12:07
Houston trades Chris Paul + Clint Capella

Boston trades Horford (opt in) +Smart+#22.

10 Jun 2019 04:42:32
I would rather have Smart than Paul at this point of Paul's career. Smart is younger on a much cheaper contract and a better defender.

10 Jun 2019 08:42:16
Well defending is the only thing Smart is better than Paul. As long as the Rockets want to win they won't give up good players for worse players just to shed salary. Also Pick 22 doesn't help them right now.

I think the Celtics want to get a young Center in the age of their future core (Tatum, Brown, Smart) . I think they are Willingen to give up some picks. Could be a 3 team trade.

10 Jun 2019 10:09:32
Davis also fits that age timeline at 26. Which is probably Boston's first choice. However, Capela would be a nice 2nd choice.
Paulwould also be a nice fit
At his age and experience, would be a nice floor General for the Celtics young core.

10 Jun 2019 18:32:53
Houston could draft Herro or Guy at 22.

11 Jun 2019 01:26:30
Ps- if cp3 wasnt 40 million a year I might agree. He isn't worth 20 a year.
