Warriors - Nets

kevin Durant for Dangelo Russell both by sign and trade

May exchange some assets to match salaries

Russell at the two, klay at the three when he'll come back, Iggy or McKinnie till that

18 Jun 2019 22:08:51

OKC gets CP3 and Allen

HOU gets Roberson, Adams, and Joe Harris

Nets get Capela
*Sign Randle 3yr/ 30 mil
Sign Kyrie
Sign Jimmy B

Kyrie/ Napier
Butler/ Caris Lavert
Prince/ KZ Okpala (#27)


*Sign Taj Gibson 1yr 10 mil
Think this the perfect balance of 3 and D and possibly can make a huge run in an open West.

Harden/ Rivers
Gordon/ Shump
Roberson/ Harris
Tucker/ Faried
Adams/ Taj Gibson.

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.

17 Jun 2019 10:20:36

Pistons: Chris Paul, Malik Monk, 1st round pick Hornets (#12), 2nd round pick Houston & Bismack Biyombo (exp)
- took the horrible contract of Chris Paul but gain a lottery pick and decent back ups

draft picks #12 Bol Bol, #15 PJ Washington


Rockets: Reggie Jackson (exp) & Nic Batum
- get rid of Paul by taking Batum who has a smaller and shorter contract


Hornets: Andre Drummond & Langston Galloway
- get a strong center finally and gets rid of Batum


17 Jun 2019 16:09:01
i like drummond to cha for batum+12.

16 Jun 2019 11:21:43
lf warriors won't compete next year


GSW- Solomon Hill, Josh Hart, one of Lakers pick.
NOP- Andre İguadala, second round pick.

Pelicans can use iggy as a mentor for young player.

Second trade

Gsw- Joe Harris, Spencer Dinwiddie

Nets- Draymond Green and first round pick Gsw 2020 and a second

16 Jun 2019 11:57:00
why should Pelicans trade Hart and a 1st rounder for someone who is going to retire after next season?

16 Jun 2019 12:05:26
1 round for dumping hill. İguadala can help pelicans. He is good player and good defender. He is the definicion of profecional basketball player.

16 Jun 2019 12:24:02
Hill is on an expiring. Why would they need to dump him?

16 Jun 2019 13:53:48
Be easier to sign Vince Carter as mentor.

16 Jun 2019 04:46:30
Could now see the Hawks very interested in Pelicans 4th pick. Take back Hill plus 8 and Nets pick, maybe a second to sweeten it a little.

16 Jun 2019 00:52:28
I think what happen will be:

Leonard may stay in Toronto or go to the Clippers?

Probably New York will trade:

- NY: Davis
- NO: BARRETT, Smith, Know, Robinson

NY signs Irving and Durant.

If not Irving and Durant will go to Brooklyn and AD may end up at Lakers somehow.

New Orleans will have a amazing young core in Robinson, Zion, (Randle maybe), Knox, Johnson, Barrett, Smith and Holiday or a return of him (maybe Suns pic to take White PG ?)

Since the Lakers will sign Butler and Cousins.

So the Mavs should target signs or trade:

Drummond or Valenciunas (Randle?)
Leonard, Middleton, Brogdon, Amuni or Lamb
Walker, Russell or Rubio.

A trade proposal will follow up!

16 Jun 2019 02:04:16
Well, that didn't take long to be wrong.

16 Jun 2019 03:26:22
AD is already a Laker.

16 Jun 2019 04:45:24
Ad to lakers is official.

15 Jun 2019 15:34:03
The Cavs get Batum, Biyombo, Williams, Bridges, the 12th pick and 2 2nds

The Hornets get Love, jr(waive), Clarkson, Zizic, and save 16 million dollars.

15 Jun 2019 18:17:45
So combining two lottery rosters. Lol.

15 Jun 2019 19:07:37
They’re getting a good sixth man, a 2nd allstar and opening up a ton of cap. That’s the kind of move they need to make if they want to keep Kemba.

15 Jun 2019 19:23:30
Batum for love even trade.

15 Jun 2019 20:56:31
Shizzee, how are those Knicks doing buddy?

16 Jun 2019 09:11:18
I will tell you in a month from now.

14 Jun 2019 19:57:04
Nets resign russell and max out Irving.
When able trade russell and allen Plus two first for davis

14 Jun 2019 10:49:14
Cavs - Nets - Suns

Cavs gets:
T.Johnson (expiring)
2020 1st rd pick (Bucks via Suns)

Nets gets:

Suns gets:
Russell (S&T)

Cavs gets a first rd pick and save money both next season and in the future.

Nets sign Irving and get a PF that can space the floor in Love.

Suns upgrade at PG and Russell fits their timeline.

14 Jun 2019 10:56:29
Make it Warren then maybe for the Cavs.

14 Jun 2019 12:56:06
Yeah, I don’t think that does it for the Cavs.

14 Jun 2019 12:56:07
Phoenix would have to add more salary (Warren or Jackson) to make salaries match for what DLo will be signing for. Phoenix doesn't have a ton of cap space if they also want the right to match any offer on Oubre.

14 Jun 2019 13:41:34
They can afford to sign and trade for Russell and keep Oubres cap hold.

14 Jun 2019 15:43:33
Magnus, is right and I was wrong. I was using the 7+ years playing max contract instead of the 0-6 years of playing max salary which is $25 mil in year 1.

13 Jun 2019 23:22:40
I believe someone already posted this but this makes a lot of sense if Nets wants Harris

Nets - Harris (s&t)
76ers - Russell (s&t)

Nets sign Irving
Draft Thybulle and Gafford


Reddick/Schofield(2nd round)

14 Jun 2019 01:07:34
Irving only going to play with russell.

14 Jun 2019 01:35:47
Actually it makes no sense because if this was a possibility, then the Nets would not have to trade Crabbe's salary to get Kyrie and Harris.

Nets can straight out sign Harris now, why help Philly get DLo? Let all those assets Philly used to get Harris go to waste.

14 Jun 2019 02:05:43
Don’t think the sixers line up would look like that, but yea I agree with the trade.

14 Jun 2019 02:55:27
Fredman 76ers can also sign DLo outright.

14 Jun 2019 06:27:59
NBA16, true. But it would require waiving all the teams cap holds which includes retaining the Bird rights to JJReddick and TJ McConnell. So you can kiss away resigning them as well.

So Philly would be looking at

PG DLo/?
SG Simmons/ Smith
SF Butler/?
PF Simmons/ Bolden
C Embiid/?

13 Jun 2019 21:33:26
Okc complete rebuild

Lakers - PG
Thunder - Ingram Hart Wagner 4th

Heat - Westbrook
Thunder - Dragic Johnson 13th

Hornets - Adams
Thunder - Batum Monk 36

Jazz - Schroder
Thunder - Exum 23

Thunder draft
4 - Garland
13 - Bol Bol
21 - Fernando
23 - Claxton
36 - Schofield

Bol Bol/Fernando/Wagner





13 Jun 2019 17:54:29

Swap Harris and Russell via sign and trade. If BKN retains Russell and signs Kyrie, they're too guard heavy. Russell is the perfect backcourt fit with Simmons.

13 Jun 2019 18:22:20
Interesting. Obviously both would need to want to, but it would allow Brooklyn to make possibly another signing with only needing to keep Russells cap hold on the books. How close is Philly to the tax line though? They can't cross it for a calendar year.

13 Jun 2019 18:48:24
I read that Brooklyn is interested in bringing Thad Young back in. Pacers are said to be very interested in Russell. S&T with Indiana?

Russell 4yr @ $100m to Indiana
Young 3 yr @ $42m to Brooklyn


13 Jun 2019 11:39:58

Wizards out: Beal, Mahinmi
Wizards in: Batum, Robinson, Shamet, 12th pick, Sixers 1st, 2 2nd from Clippers

draft Jaxson Hayes & Rui Hachimura


Clippers out: Thornwell, Robinson, Shamet, Sixers 1st, future 1st, 2nd round picks
Clippers in: Beal

* sign Kawhi to max


Hornets out: Batum, 12th pick
Hornets in: Mahinmi (exp), future 1st Clippers

13 Jun 2019 13:38:28
The Hornets might not be able to get off Batum with just the 12th pick. They shouldn’t get a pick pack. The clippers need to give up SGA, if they want Beal.

13 Jun 2019 06:19:50
A silly idea

The Hornets send: Nick Batum, Malik Monk, 12th pick, and 2020 first rounder
Hornets receive: Gary Harris and M. Plumlee

Nuggets send: Gary Harris and M. Plumlee
Nuggets receive: Picks 9, 12, Hornets 2020 first rounder, Malik Monk, and John Wall.

Wizards send: John Wall and the 9th pick
Wizards receive: Nick Batum

Hornets get off one of the worse contracts in the NBA and get back a good starter on a fine salary who’a size and skillset is perfect fit next to Kemba. He also brings scoring that’s desperately needed for the team. I figured it would cost 2 first just to bribe someone to take Batum and another to get Gary.

Washington cuts 15 mil off of both of the next 2 years. Then there off Batum while Walk is still cost 42-44 mil a year. Batum’s also more of an offball guy who could settle better into a complimentary role.

This started by me wondering what move the Nuggets could make to get into the draft so they could take Brandon Clarke, who would be the perfect compliment for Jokic due to his ability to guard literally every position and his need for a Center who can stretch the floor (Clark’s game close to the bucket is actually worth the trouble of a floor stretching 5). The Nuggets get 2 lottery picks this year, another next year, and a former first rounder in Monk just to take on Wall’s money and lose Gary. Nuggets will have the space after declining Millsap’s option and Wall might actually have some upside left in there to harness, and if he doesn’t you still got 4 young assets for him. The Nuggets at this point would have a bit of a jam of upcoming players and could try to package some of those guys including Monk for another deal.

15 Jun 2019 19:28:00
Why would anyone, forget about the nuggets, take on Wall? Absolutely not. Washington has to eat that for the life of the contract and so does Houston with Paul.

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.

13 Jun 2019 01:51:59

Hornets- Kevin Love, 26th pick
Give Kemba a 2nd option if they resign him


Cavaliers- 12th pick, Dwayne Bacon, Mkg (exp) & Bismack Biyombo (exp)

get expiring contacts and assets for Love

13 Jun 2019 13:42:27
It makes some sense for both sides. As a Cavs fan, I’d want them to push for Monk.

12 Jun 2019 14:31:05
Pels offseason

Trade #1

Pels - Jayson Tatum, Jaylon Brown, Myles Turner, Arron Holiday, Pick 20, Memphis Pick

Celts - Anthony Davis, Frank Jackson Solomon Hill, 2nd round pick from Pels

Pacers - Marcus Smart, E’twann Moore

Trade #2

Pels - D’Angelo Russel S&T (Restricted FA)

Nets - Julius Randle


PG - Russel / Holiday
SG - Holiday / FA or draft
SF - Tatum / Brown
PF - Zion / FA or draft
C - Turner / Okefor.

12 Jun 2019 14:57:42
No from Pacers.

12 Jun 2019 15:02:41
Marcus Smart and E'twann is worth Miles Turner PLUS Aaron Holiday? Pacers laugh and hang up.

12 Jun 2019 16:34:40
Rich Paul just told the Celtics today to stay away from AD, he won't sign an extension with them. Pacers won't trade Holiday. Collison and Joseph are both free agents. Tyreke Evans and probably Wes Matthews are gone.

12 Jun 2019 18:59:34
Rich Paul can say whatever he wants, I doubt it changes the Celtics plans at all. Toronto was told to stay away from Leonard. It's worked out for them.

12 Jun 2019 21:19:15
big no from Indy, Turner is a borderline all star.

12 Jun 2019 09:16:56
3 team deal
Hornets,bulls pelicans

Hornets get valentine

Bulls get A.D and biyombo(buy out)

Pelicans get markennan,dunn,#7 and #12 picks

For hornets to ever sign kemba that #12 pick will be packaged with one of thier ovetpayed players for salary dump no matter what

Pelicans can draft white and hayes
All young players

Bulls can probably still weasle a pg to come play maybe still get beverly


10 Jun 2019 17:00:09
Simple 2 team trade on draft night

OKC get 2nd round picks 35 41 44

ATL get 1st round pick 21 and a future 2nd if just the 1st isn't enough.

After the Hawks trade with the Nets they have a total of 6 draft picks 3 1st rounds and 3 2nd rounds. If they want to try and make any free agent additions whether its big deals or small deals they don't really have roster room for 6 picks especially if 3 of those are 2nds in a draft that's not a very deep draft. With this trade they will have a total of 4 1st round draft picks to add to their pool of young talent and still leave a few roster spots for flexibility and free agent additions even if they aren't big name free agents. Like if they want to resign Dedmon or other minor additions to fill out the team.

OKC is far over the salary cap and need as many cheap contracts as possible. The 3 2nd round picks will give them 3 multi year cheap contracts on young players, and hopefully they could get lucky with 1 or 2 of them and have them contribute in their 1st year. Also the 3 cheap contracts would help fill the roster for if they tried to make a multi player for 1 player deal to try and dump some salary.

What are yalls thoughts?

I personally think this is a win win for both teams, both teams get what they need. Thunder move down in the draft for cheap contracts hawks move up for better young talent.

10 Jun 2019 18:23:00
I am seriously curious to see what Atlanta does with their six draft picks. I definately see them trading up but I was looking at Milwaukee being the team to trade out of the 1st round.

Also not sure who OKC would draft in the second round. Most prospects that fit OKC's need will be gone by then.

10 Jun 2019 22:45:09
Fredman- plc can't afford a first round talent.
