Blazers/ Bulls/ Hornets

Blazers get Biyombo from Charlotte/ Portis from the Bulls

Bulls get Evan Turner/ Protected first from Charlotte (lottery)

Hornets get Felicio/ Payne from the Bulls

Blazers get a solid defensive back up 5, young of with potential, 2 areas of need, for basically the same money they are paying Turner

Bulls get a veteran wing that they sorely lack and a future pick, don't really have room for Portis anyway with what they've done this summer

Charlotte gets a couple of useful players? And saves some money.

15 Aug 2018 19:35:06

Hornets- Rubio,Allen,2 2nd's

Jazz- Kemba Kamisky

Jazz get a big upgrade at guard whie trying to compete

Hornets get rubio who they can flip for a young piece later and a good prospect to pair with monk in the backcourt

15 Aug 2018 19:55:24
That’s awful for the Hornets.

15 Aug 2018 21:56:48
Rubio is better fit for Jazz than Kemba

14 Aug 2018 02:53:15
Magic-Brooklyn Trade

Magic Recieve-Spencer Dinwiddie

Nets receive-Justin Jackson,2020 okc 1st

14 Aug 2018 05:49:43
Wtf u on, jackson is on kings.

14 Aug 2018 06:46:33
There's another Justin Jackson who came out of Maryland this year.

14 Aug 2018 08:22:54
Oops sorry.

14 Aug 2018 12:35:00
Hhhahhhahahhahhah typical.

14 Aug 2018 13:23:10
Dinwiddie isn't worth a 1st Rd pick, even a late one.

14 Aug 2018 23:55:22
Ugh yes he is worth a (really late 1st) he averaged like 12ppg 6ast and 3rb I think so to me he actually can play most 2nd rd picks are just d league.

13 Aug 2018 04:42:01
Extending GSW dynasty.
Trade deadline deal:

Kings receive: Gallinari, Cook, Bell, '19 1st
Send: Shumpert, Hield
Get some good prospects, an additional pick, and a needed go to scorer to reduce the pressure on theit young core.

Hornets send: MKG, '21 2nd
Receive: Livingston
Cut down on salary (now & future), and finally get their back up PG.

Clippers send: Gallinari
Receive: Shumpert (waive), MKG, '21 2nd
open up more cap space for the off season and get a pick.

GSW send: Livingston, Cook, Bell, '19 1st
Receive: Hield
They won't be able to afford resigning Cook and Bell with their current core getting more and more expensive. This gives them a solid back up G off the bench and saves them a lot of tax.

15 Aug 2018 03:12:33
with Cook and Livingston gone. Who is Backup point guard?

11 Aug 2018 12:33:25

Orlando Sends: Vucevic, J. Simmons, M. Frazier, 2019 1st rounder, 2020 2nd round pick

Orlando Receives: Dinwiddie, D. Carroll, R. Hollis-Jefferson

Why: Unclog frontline minutes, defensive-minded SF, Starting PG

Brooklyn Sends: Dinwiddie, D.Carroll, R. Hollis-Jefferson

Brooklyn Receives: Vucevic, J. Simmons, M. Frazier, 2019 1st rounder, 2020 2nd rounder

Why: Center support for J. Allen, cheaper SF option (long-term- RH-J up for expensive extension), future assets

11 Aug 2018 13:47:44
Not bad, jus don’t like Orlando giving up a likely top10 pick in this deal. Lottery protect it for this year, and then top 8 or so for the year after and I like it.

11 Aug 2018 03:14:40

11 Aug 2018 20:28:10
dont like it for bk at all. essentially they are flipping dinwiddie for a post-lottery 1st and harris for an early 2nd. that doesn’t sound terrible in a vacuum, but i'd rather stick with those guys. would feel better if they got a young guy from phx like chriss or bridges (longshot)

12 Aug 2018 17:43:00
Great deal for Lakers.

Good deal for Spurs.

Horrible deal for Hornets.

Deng contract is not tradeable. He is fat and slow. Deng will not see the floor this year for Lakers. The only team that likes Deng is Minnesota (Tibbs) .

12 Aug 2018 19:15:53
Dieng for deng? Kidding, the Lakers would never do that.

08 Aug 2018 22:24:59
Heat get Kanter Thomas Koufos
Nets get Whiteside Noah Lee
Kings get Hardaway Olynyk
Knicks get Carroll Randolph Faried Shumpert Dudley Arthur

Knicks save the most money get worst talent in return


Heat save 2nd most money and descent return with only 1 mil guarenteed next yr.


Kings get best offensive return, take future salary


Nets take the most future salary for 1 more additional yr but have chance to be playoff after a 15 yrs layoff. Than


08 Aug 2018 23:59:38
Knicks should add Knox and Porzingis.

09 Aug 2018 00:16:14
So, the Knicks trade all their garbage for expiring contracts without giving anything up of value. It doesn’t matter how many teams you involve or which teams are involved, this trade is never going to make sense. They’re going to have to give up picks or young talent to get rid of their crap just like any other team.

09 Aug 2018 03:31:38
Love for noah makes more sense rkenne.

09 Aug 2018 05:03:43
Shizzee give it up man.

09 Aug 2018 19:33:30
Nets have clearly stated they are clearing as much money as possible to make a run at a couple of max FA’s next year. Why in God’s name would they make this deal?

10 Aug 2018 01:17:24
Brooklyn wants two max slots next year. They aren't taking contracts on.

04 Aug 2018 21:34:59
Mil gets - Butler (resigns)
Bkn gets - Wiggins
Min gets - Middleton (resigns) Wilson Snell Crabee Levert and Dudley




05 Aug 2018 00:33:08
Butler won't resign in Milwaukee. They need to keep players who willing to play in milwaukee. Learn fro. Toronto. Minny get screwed taking in deal taking snell. Nets won't deal for wiggens who is overpaid.

05 Aug 2018 01:26:13
Bucks getting Butler for Middleton and unloading Snell and Wilson means that you value Middleton higher than Butler, right? I'm a Bucks fan and I don't get it how this can happen.

04 Aug 2018 00:19:05
Imo blake griffin isn't what he use to be so pistons should trade him for more players to get better depth

Pistons get - Lamb Batum Williams and Bacon

Hornets get - Griffin and Galloway


04 Aug 2018 03:49:19
Hornets should ride it out with batum before getting into griffin.

03 Aug 2018 22:30:23
Grizzlies get - Crabbe and Arthur

Nuggets get - Carroll

Nets get - Parsons Griz 2019 1st top 8 protected Plumlee Lydon and Den 2nd




04 Aug 2018 01:22:48
Celtics own grizzlies 2019 1sr Rd pick already.

03 Aug 2018 09:28:42

MIN: D'Angelo Russell, Demarre Carroll (exp), Allen Crabbe & 2nd round picks


BKN: Jimmy Butler & Jeff Teague


03 Aug 2018 15:05:00
Nowhere near enough for Butler/ Teague.

04 Aug 2018 00:56:05
Wow this sites getting worse! I didn’t know you could out do shizzee! I’m ya have a brain please use it.

03 Aug 2018 02:46:13
Thunder lack a solid backup SF and have several young players that can battle for the backup SG position Ferguson, TLC, Diallo so I think they should trade Alex Abrines using the TPE from Melo trade to get a solid SF for the bench. Most of the trades would make the luxury bill go up a lot but Thunder could cut, trade, or stretch Singler to make them cheaper and open a roster spot after the trade.

Thunder get Demarre Carroll
Nets get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd

Thunder get Marvin Williams
Hornets get Abrines

Thunder get Korver
Cavs get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Bojan Bogdanovic
Pacers get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Josh Richardson
Heat get Abrines, 2 2 nd’s

Thunder get Tony Snell
Bucks get Abrines

Thunder get Courtney Lee
Knicks get Abrines, 1 2nd if needed

Thunder get Jonathan Simmons
Magic get Abrines 2 2nd’s

Thunder get CJ Miles
Raptors get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get Garrett Temple
Grizzlies get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get E'Twaun Moore
Pelicans get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Jae Crowder
Jazz get Abrines, 2 2nds

At trade deadline if Ariza won't sign with sun's next year
Thunder get Ariza
Suns get Abrines, 1 or 2 seconds

Give me your opinions. Will any of these work?

03 Aug 2018 05:24:03
Can't include a TPE with a player.

03 Aug 2018 06:13:48
Dang I didn't realize that. Well ignore all of those.

03 Aug 2018 04:28:40
Nets say no for sure. Portland probably says no, and this might help Bucks a little but this won't help them that much Bledsoe and Middleton are better at defense. I don't like it for anyone.

03 Aug 2018 13:31:41
I believe Milwaukee would also say no. Middleton isn't going anywhere, No matter how many times people put him in trades. The Bucks have stated that Giannis and Middleton are pretty much untouchable.

03 Aug 2018 15:23:59
You wouldn’t trade Middleton on an expiring deal for Lillard with 3 years left? You’re hopeless.

The Nets wouldn’t do this. Russell was good last year and he’s still very young. Why trade him for an expiring contract of an average player?

Portland also says no. You don’t trade a superstar for multiple role players. It’s never a good idea.

The Bucks can’t say yes fast enough.

03 Aug 2018 17:28:05
Being a Blazer fan, I do get your fascination with Middleton (he and McCollum are identically valuable players playing alongside equally great superstars) . Most trades that come up surrounding those guys are side grades at best (getting someone like Kevin Love or Griffin, or getting a bunch of role players that are replaceable parts) . With those kind of trades, you don't move Middleton/ McCollum.

But let's reverse this. Portland trades McCollum, Aminu, and a first for Giannis. That's the same deal as what is stated here in terms of quality. Would I want to trade McCollum? No. Would I move him for a top 10 player in Giannis? Without a question.

03 Aug 2018 18:59:40
Lillard is not in my top ten of nba'ers in anything other than salary. I like McCollum but he isn't a top 10'er.

03 Aug 2018 19:27:43
You also have an irrational dislike for Lillard Btec (and probably an irrational liking for McCollum) . Having watched both for a number of years, I can tell you 100% that Lillard is CONSIDERABLY better in every way than McCollum. McCollum is a good player, Lillard is great.

Maybe he's not top 10 (I think he is, but I'm a Blazer fan), but he's right on that line. There's like 5-7 guys that are clearly better than him (Durant, Lebron, Curry, Harden, AD), but he's in the next group. Ranking them 8-15 is really splitting hairs.

03 Aug 2018 20:07:34
Why would the Bucks want to take on an extra 16 mil in salary plus give up a pick? Lillard might be better than Bledsoe, But Turner in Not better than Middleton!

03 Aug 2018 22:42:23
@bmiller66 - irrational because I don't share your opinion? I'm now not a fan and am irrational because Lillard is closer to Middletown value than he is Giannis? I'll be over in my delusional fan corner. Why do you think lillard is always butt hurt about the olympics if he's a top ten player?

03 Aug 2018 23:44:57
Lillard is better than Bledsoe and Middleton combined. That’s why. You can’t just compare one to one. It’s like saying “Giannis is better than Aminu, but McCollum is better than Bledsoe! ”.

04 Aug 2018 01:03:38
No but (once again) I’ll say it the bucks will lose giannis if they don’t give him help, Middleton is and never will be a Allstar! He is good but if ya get dame to make your superstar happy ya do it! I think torque ya said Jabari was untouchable we literally think zero of your basketball knowledge! Saying no to everything doesn’t help your team think outside the bucks.

04 Aug 2018 02:23:14
Hello madeindade28, "I" never said Parker was untouchable! You seem sure Middleton will never be an all star? And, Who is this "WE"? saying no to everything, Not quite but, watching other teams dump their crap on the ucks seems odd? Here's one for you, trade Dame for Dellavedova, then trade Wilson for Labron James, That would help Giannis, PLUS Portland AND la also chip in a couple of 1st rd picks!

02 Aug 2018 15:46:57
Sac: Noah+ Crabbe+ 2rnd pick Nets+ 2rnd pick NY 2018 and 2019

NY: Shumpert+ Koufos

Nets: Z-BO

Both the Nets and Knicks get extra capspace next year.

Sacramento get som early second rounders, so they have assets to trade for a first round pick in the 2019 draft.

02 Aug 2018 15:55:18
Pretty sure the nets like crabbe and wouldn't pay to trade him zbo.

02 Aug 2018 16:24:15
No one is taking on Noah for a few 2nd round picks.

02 Aug 2018 20:29:34
Still clowning around.

02 Aug 2018 20:57:15
Lol kings would laugh at knicks.

03 Aug 2018 11:39:52
You've got a better chance of SuperCollider starting a Carmelo Anthony fan club than Kings taking on Noah for that return.

02 Aug 2018 07:51:35
Coud the Nets manage this?
They have capspace to sign three max players and they have their own draft pick.

Draft: Z Wiliamson

sign : J Butler/ K Leonard/ K Irving to max contracts

C: J Allen
PF: Williamson
Sf: Leonard
SG: J Butler
PG: Irving

02 Aug 2018 08:40:53

02 Aug 2018 12:29:46
They’d probably have to dump Crabbe of Harris’ contract to get to 3 max contracts room.

02 Aug 2018 12:38:35
Brooklyn needs almost $100 million in cap space to sign 3 max players.
Cap is scheduled to be $110 million next year.
Brooklyn has around $40 million in contracts on the books for next year.
So, they can sign 2 max players, not 3.

02 Aug 2018 13:52:23
There are few teams in as good a position to pull it off as the Nets are. It is almost never that a team has been in a position to offer two max deals without having to finagle a bit.

That said, only once has a team been able to sign two max level guys from outside their organization (LBJ, Bosh), and discounts were taken to make it happen. Three just seems like an impossibility to me.

02 Aug 2018 14:32:05
Bc teams are lining to play with J. Allen. original poster is cavs fan who knows his team is a bottom feeder. So he is taking jab against my previous trade. Their are rumors leonard is going to lakers not nets. And butler irving going to ny. Durant probably goes stay warrior.

02 Aug 2018 14:39:49
They probably can't afford three, but they probably can't get Leonard anyway. Kyrie will likely stay in Boston, but if he moves, he and Butler are likely to want to play together. I don't know how good a team they would be in Brooklyn, but they will be significantly better than the have been the last few seasons.

02 Aug 2018 15:51:52
I've seen this on youtube.
He says, K Leonard's uncle and Irving's father know each other

both players would prefer the Knicks over the Nets, but Crabbe has a player option, so he could opt out or a team would want Crabbe and some second round pick for an expiring contract. This would give the Nets the space to sign Butler too.

02 Aug 2018 02:22:25
Nets get Hardaway Lee Noah Labissierre 2020 2022 1st
Knicks get Carroll Shumpert Faried
Kings get Crabbe Kurocs 2020 & 2022 Nets 2nd

Nets get 2 future 1st at the cost of 2 future seconds for equal talent in return. The extra 1STs convience them to wait additional yr for free agency with 80 mil cap space while still having competitive team over next 2 yrs


Kings get a much better wing and 2 additional future picks for taking extra yr of salary for starter who spread the floor


Knicks the big risk takers. 1st buyot for Thomas 1 mil. Free cap space on bringing on Durant, Butler and Irving 30 mil per yr as free agents with 12 mil payroll. Finally resigning Porzingis.

Irving/Ntilikina/vet min
Butler/C.Martin-2nd/Vet min
Durant/Dotson/Vet min
Knox/Williamson-1st/Vet min
Porzingis/Robinson/Vet min

01 Aug 2018 19:54:04
San Antonio Spurs:
Kenneth Faried
DeMarre Carroll

Brooklyn Nets:
Patty Mills
Pau Gasol
pick Toronto.

01 Aug 2018 21:18:24
Nets targeting free agency. They have cap space for 3 maxed contracts next summer. Spurs want to hold on to their picks. If spurs want to dump salary and are in rebuilding time, they would use aldridge and derozan to dump gasol and mills.

01 Aug 2018 04:36:19
Some Philly (Bayless) trade ideas:

Phi receive: Korver
Cavs receive: Bayless, '19 top 24 protected 1st (converts to 2 seconds)

Phi receive: Lamb
Hor receive: Bayless, '19 unprotected 1st, '21 2nd

Phi receive: Ross
Magic receive: Bayless, '19 top 24 protected 1st (converts to 2 seconds)

Phi receive: Dudley
Brooklyn receive: Bayless, '19 2nd

Phi receive: Waiters
Heat receive: Bayless, '19 & '20 2nd

Phi receive: Thomas
NY receive: Bayless '19 2nd

What are your thoughts on the above?

01 Aug 2018 06:32:55
where's suns part? trade sf t j warren to philly pg bayless.

01 Aug 2018 15:10:45
Sixers go for the Ross, Korver or the Dudley trades. Waiters is stilled owed $40 million over the next 3 years. Lb isn't worth an unprotected first (injuries could make it a valuable pick), and Thomas is 8 mill ecyra against the cap next year. But Ross and Dude are both expiring (as is Bayless), at nearly the same cap hit. And Korver is a good fit and worth a very late first or 2 second Rd picks.

01 Aug 2018 17:02:46
Orlando may say yes but it would have to be bare minimum Lottery protected 1st, not top 24.

01 Aug 2018 20:28:41
Oldskoolmagic: Ross and Bayless are both expiring, ross makes $10m, bayless $8.6m. Would you give up a 1-14 protected pick for Ross? The GM who would will be sitting next to me in the cheap seats watching the game.

01 Aug 2018 22:39:37
JVoug: I said lottery protected 1st. Orlando would only get the 1st if it falls out of the lottery. That would be fair compensation for Ross. He is a way better player than Bayless.

01 Aug 2018 23:41:48
Nobody gives a unprotected 1st for lamb.

02 Aug 2018 01:57:36
Thanks for the input, I appreciate it.

03 Aug 2018 04:57:54
why would the cavaliers want jerryd bayless and older shorter version of clarkson. his contract expires in 2019 so the trade is exclusively for the draft pick which shold have only top 14 protected status. tj mcdonnel is a better choice than bayless.

30 Jul 2018 16:43:16

Rockets receive nic Baum

Hornets receive anderson, onaku (salary filler)

Hornets get out of batums contract of 3 yrs 70+ mil. Getting anderson who has one less yr would probably be something the hornets jump at.

Although Batum has an extra yr of 20+ mil, Batum can make up for the absence of ariza and LMM.

30 Jul 2018 17:20:35
I really like the fit of Batum in Houston. I just wouldn't think they'd want to take on that contract.

In a system like Houston, SA, or GS I think Batum would be a great fit as a role player.

30 Jul 2018 21:02:57
And who plays sf for the Hornets?

Batum to Houston
Ryan Anderson to Sacramento
Iman Shumpert and Skal to the Suns
TJ Warren and Chriss to the Hornets

Kemba, Parker, Devonte
Lamb, Monk, Bacon
Warren, MKG, Bridges
Williams, Frank, Chriss
Zeller, Hernangomez, Biz.

31 Jul 2018 01:55:55
mrtarheel, MKG, as he did last year!

28 Jul 2018 21:12:23
Rockets get - Batum
Hornets get - Anderson Melton and 2nd round pick


29 Jul 2018 12:58:44
Rockets get MKG, Sacramento gets Ryan Anderson and Hornets get Shumpert ( 11mil expiring ) and Skal.

29 Jul 2018 20:45:48
not bad for either side, houston gets arguably the worse contract (batum has a po he will likely take same summer andersen expires) but batum fills more of a need for them. charlotte should be quicker to make this, melton is decent and given the contract they swap, andersen isn't terrible. and getting a pick never hurts.
