---Cleveland Cavaliers offseason---

The assumption is that LeBron will resign for the supermax.

Trade #1: Cleveland - Denver

Cleveland trades: Jordan Clarkson

Denver trades: Will Barton (S&T)

Cleveland adds a player in Barton who fits better next to LeBron. An average salary of 10M per year might b reasonable for both sides.

Instead of losing Barton for nothing, they add a decent scorer with two years left on his deal on a reasonable salary.

Trade #2: Cleveland - Utah

Cleveland trades: J. R. Smith (exp) and Cedi Osman

Utah trades: Derrick Favors (S&T)

For Cleveland, they add a much needed big man who happens to bring rim protection and fits well next to Kevin Love.

For the Jazz, they swap Favors for a decent prospect in Osman instead of losing him for nothing and Smith, who is added for salary purposes. He's an expiring contract next season.

Cleveland Cavaliers roster:
PG: George Hill
SG: Will Barton
SF: LeBron James
PF: Kevin Love
C: Derrick Favors
+'18 first round pick via Brooklyn (currently 8th overall) .

Great length, has potential to be a solid defensive line-up.

25 Apr 2018 01:35:50
I'm not a fan of trading Cedi unless the Cavs end up with a high level starter or a veteran player that can replace what he does. Honestly, he should be playing the Jeff Green minutes in the current series. He doesn't have the experience Green does, but he does everything else he can plus he can hit open 3s. (I'll admit that I was high on Green for most of the season before general consensus struck)

24 Apr 2018 23:39:00
The Cavs get Porter, Mills, and Green

The Spurs get Gortat(exp), Morris, Oubre, Osman, Clarkson, the 18 Brooklyn 1st, and the Wizards 18 and 20 1sts

The Wizards get Leonard, Jr Smith, and Thompson.

24 Apr 2018 14:43:16

MIN Receives: Caris Levert, Spencer Dinwiddie

Minnesota gets an upgrade at point guard over Jeff Teague and they also receive Caris levers who is young and a good scorer off the bench.

BNK Receives: Andrew Wiggins

The Nets need to start winning or their fanbase will begin to deplete. Wiggins will be the number 1 or 2 option in Brooklyn and thrive in that atmosphere.

24 Apr 2018 16:19:34
How is that an upgrade at pg? I'm not sure dinwiddle gets backup minutes in that lineup.

24 Apr 2018 17:07:54
I'm not sure that it's an upgrade at point guard, but Dinwiddie would be one of the best backup pgs in the NBA.

24 Apr 2018 18:21:28
Minnesota already has a decent backup PG in Tyus Jones. So trading a guy, while flawed, who still has potentially a lot of upside, for basically a pair of backups, is not a smart idea. Only positive of this for Minnesota is that they get a lot of cap space.

Now Wiggins, Jones, and Dieng for Carroll, Dinwiddie, and LeVert would get me, as a Minnesota fan, interested. Minnesota gets better depth with LeVert and Dinwiddie on the bench, plus more cap space.

But if Minnesota does look to trade Wiggins, I still think the best trade is to Sacramento for Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson.

24 Apr 2018 11:42:45
Knicks offseason

Hawks get Noah Korkmaz Mudiay Bayless C.Anderson 8th
Knicks get Schroder Bazemore Plumlee Caborrott 19 30
Sixers get Hardaway

Knicks get Howard Batum
Hornets get Lee Thomas Baker Kanter

O'Quinn opts in signs extension 3yr 36 mil 3rd yr team opt
Beasley for mle 1yr 8mil


24 Apr 2018 15:23:05
sixers want to move bayless in a deal to clear his 9 million, not take hardaways 15 million back. doesn't make any sense for Philly. Sixers want enough cap to sign a max FA and resign some of their own role players, Hardaway and his contract is the last thing they would go after.

24 Apr 2018 06:53:19
Cavs trade tt 2021 1st to team with cap space

Cavs trade Kevin love, cedi osman, bkn pick for kawhi

Try to buy out Jr Smith

Sign Paul George and Noel

George hill
Kawhi Leonard
Paul George
LeBron james
Nerlens Noel

Nance clarckson korver off bench

24 Apr 2018 09:45:23
They will have to dump hill and smith. If buy out it still count against cap.

24 Apr 2018 12:10:19
They have no way of opening up cap space. They're like 40 million over the cap.

24 Apr 2018 02:59:03
Cavs get pick 29,Rhonde Hollis Jefferson,d Angelo Russell

Nets get pick 8

24 Apr 2018 08:47:39
too much for 8th pick.

23 Apr 2018 21:35:39
Options for Cavs if nets pick lands top 3 or if it's still 8

Nets pick lands top 3:Devin Booker since he said he's tired if losing, kawhi Leonard

If nets pick lands 8: Damian Lillard, cj McCollum, Aaron Gordon,

These are the ones I can think of for now, please reply if you come up with other players

23 Apr 2018 22:29:37
Booker is untouchable and I'm not sure that the 8th pick as a center of a trade is getting you Lilliard assuming that they even consider trading him. It's hard to imagine a restricted free agent being involved in a sign and trade. If they were going to trade Gordon, he would have been dealt at the deadline. He had more value then.

I think Leonard would be possible at either spot depending on what the Cavs are willing to package with the pick.

Maybe, Whiteside or Jordan with something more thrown in from their respective teams.

24 Apr 2018 00:41:10
Booker isn’t realistic. Lillard isn’t (especially for just the #8 pick)

24 Apr 2018 01:26:40
I don't think you get any of those 3 for a top 3, much less an 8.

24 Apr 2018 02:24:59
Who would they be moving besides the Nets pick?

23 Apr 2018 13:36:43
Bucks trade Bledsoe, Brogdon, Maker, Snell, 1st round pick
Bucks get Beal, Walker

Wizards trade Wall, Beal
Wizards get Bledsoe, Batum, Maker, Monk, 1st round pick Bucks

Hornets trade Walker, Batum, Monk
Hornets get Wall, Brogdon, Snell

- immediat championship contender

- young talented team with new face

- build around Wall

23 Apr 2018 22:24:03
Don't like it for Wizards. This is not enough for Wall and Beal.

23 Apr 2018 08:43:43

PHX get D'Angelo Russell

BKN get Andrew Wiggins & Tyler Ulis

MIN get TJ Warren & RHJ

23 Apr 2018 13:07:29
I like it.

23 Apr 2018 13:32:32
Wiggins is definitely an incomplete player, but the potential he still has is worth more than Hollis-Jefferson and Warren. I like everyone involved in the trade, but Wiggins is definitely the biggest piece, with Russell probably being the second, again based on potential.

23 Apr 2018 00:20:47
Brooklyn gets: Andrew Wiggins

Minnesota gets: Demarre Carroll; 29th pick

23 Apr 2018 02:23:38
Come on! Yes, Wiggins is overrated, but a deal for an average player and a late first is just ridiculous. Ninny says no 11 out of 10 times.

23 Apr 2018 02:59:52
Minnesota would be asking for more. Wiggins is still a young player with star potential and is locked into the foreseeable future.

22 Apr 2018 17:52:46

21 Apr 2018 19:33:22
If you can pull these trades you might as well keep lee and Thomas get rid of the garbage known as Hardaway. He is 2nd coming of melo with less talent. All stats and offense, terrible plus minus against apposing starting SG.

20 Apr 2018 22:55:40

Knicks gets:
29th pick
40th pick
2019 2nd rd pick back

Nets gets:
9th pick

20 Apr 2018 16:58:06
Add crabbe and Hardaway,

20 Apr 2018 17:00:27
I like this trade, The Nets are one of the few teams that could take Noah's contract.

20 Apr 2018 17:49:11
this deal seems to write russell off as garbage. if ny wants to offer their pick to dump noah, getting a former 2nd overall pick who to me looks like a future all star, is a dream and a half.

20 Apr 2018 21:28:52
Russell is going to be good, but the Nets can start tanking next year. So they better trade their assets for picks.

But NY could give an extra draft pick in this trade.

21 Apr 2018 02:58:43
Nets are already tanking, and Russell is part of the rebuild.

20 Apr 2018 12:44:02
Lakers get Kemba Walker, Vucevic

Hornets get Lonzo Ball, Cavs 1st, Zubac

Magic get: Luol Deng, Hornets 1st (Lottery)

20 Apr 2018 13:11:57
I don't see Hornets giving up Walker and their lottery first for Ball and Cavs first right now. I understand it's an FA for three more years deal on rookie salary that is the most attractive thing for them, but Lonzo struggled through injuries and inconsistencies all season, not sure he's a deal centrepiece yet.

That said, this isn't the worst trade I've seen.

20 Apr 2018 17:03:09
I like this for Charlotte.
There are six or seven really good players in this draft, the night pick is likely going to be a roll player.

K walker is a good player, but Ball has the potentiall to become a top 10 player. So i would take the risk.

20 Apr 2018 17:55:56
yeah giving up lonzo and their lottery pick for lonzo is too much. if they are giving up both they should be able to get off something like marvin williams contract
just take the cha and cavs picks out and give orl something like LA 19 first.

20 Apr 2018 18:32:15
^first “lonzo” should be kemba.

19 Apr 2018 12:53:17

POR get: Kevin Love and Jordan Clarkson

SAS get: Damien Lillard and 2018 1st CLE via BKN
8)Mohammed Bamba
18) Gary Trent

Pg. Lillard
Sg. Murray
Sf. Anderson
Pf. Gasol
C. Bamba

19 Apr 2018 13:08:14
Don't see Portland giving up Dame for Love and Clarkson.

19 Apr 2018 14:35:01
Yeah, I can't see that being a package that nets you Lilliard. If so, this would be a huge win for the Cavs. I also don't see the Spurs just throwing Aldridge in to a deal.

19 Apr 2018 19:39:50
given their contracts and lillard’s 2018 season i would place his trade value higher than kawhi’s rn.
not that it would fix the whole trade, but por should get the nets pick.

19 Apr 2018 02:29:59

19 Apr 2018 07:07:55
that is way, way too much for kevin love.
and the 2nd trade would be more fair if hill was the one being packaged with assets.
and that pick trade with chi is lopsided too.
smith and robinson will likely be gone by those stages of the draft also.
but nice try trying to danny ainge a chest of draft picks.

19 Apr 2018 12:25:40
If Minnesota wanted Hill, they would have signed him last year instead of Teague.

17 Apr 2018 21:24:15
Took some time working on possible trades for the hawks tell me if you think their possible or realistic.

Trades involving Plumlee

Pros Hawks receive draft picks as well as a defensive minded center who could be a mentor for John Collins

2)Magic receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Bismack Biyombo and pick 41 in 2018 draft.

Pros magic receive 4.5 mill in cap for the next 3 years which could be useful in Aaron Gordons free agency or for another free agent
Pros Hawks receive draft pick and 25 year old who is a little bit more in line with their time line

3) Wizards receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Mahinmi and pick 44 in 2018 draft

Pros Hawks receive draft pick

4)Rockets receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Ryan Anderson and pick 46 and possibly a future 2nd or 1st

Pros Rockets receive 7.1 mill this year and around 8 and 9 mill for the next two years respectively and for a LBJ pursuit this could be valuable
Pros Hawks receive draft picks as well as a possible shooting mentor for John Collins

5)Lakers receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks recieve Loul Deng pick 47 and future 2nd

Pros Lakers gain 4.7 in cap this year and around 5 mill in the next two years and with a club going after cap its a win
Pros Hawks gain draft picks and mentor

6)Memphis Receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Chandler Parsons Ivan Rabb and pick 32

Pros Memphis gains 11.5 mill in cap which could help sign a decent free agent
Pros Hawks get a pick and a young player

7) Pelicans receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Solomon Hill and ether Etwaun Moore or Alexis Ajinca and pick 51 and possibly a future heavy protected first

Pros Pels receive between 4.5 and 8.2 in cap depending on which second player is put in giving them much needed cap space for boogie or another free agent
Pros Hawks receive draft picks

8) Suns receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Brandon Knight and Jared Dudley with pick 16 or pick 51 and a future 1st round pick

Pros suns receive 11 mill in cap and get rid of an older player out of their time line

9) Nets receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Timofey Mozgov and pick 45

Pros Nets receive a younger center and gain 2.8 in cap this year and around 3-3.8 mill the next two years
Pros Hawks gain draft pick.

17 Apr 2018 22:13:48
I Like the magic trade.

17 Apr 2018 22:28:48
I don't agree with a few of the scenarios but i definitely respect the depth of thought involved

In the scenario with the Pels it just would not work out when Boogie re-signs. It would leave Darius Miller as your only true SF and would not give them the cap room to sign a decent SF in FA. Pels have to continue growth or risk losing AD

Of all the scenarios i see Houston as most likely maybe Memphis second most.

17 Apr 2018 22:54:08
Maybe Minnesota for Dieng?

18 Apr 2018 00:22:09
10) Minnesota receives Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Grogui Deng and Pick 48 and future second due to his contract being one year longer than plumlees

Pros Wolves gain 2-5 mill over the next four years
Pros Hawks gain draft picks.

17 Apr 2018 02:07:32
the Magic get Ball and Gasol(buy out) save 7 million now and 23 million next year

The Lakers get Kawhi

The Spurs get Kemba, Vucevic, Fournier, Ingram, and 2 Lakers 2nds

The Hornets get White, Murray, Lauvergne, Zubac, the Spurs 18 1st and the Orlando 19 1st top 10 protected plus they save 6 million

17 Apr 2018 19:27:27
spurs getting way too much, take out ingram. take either murray or the spurs pick from cha too, kemba is expiring thus lower value. honestly the magic just make this overly complicated and i don't see lonzo being available either.
