Bulls: Mirotic, Lopez

Griz: Parsons 1st round pick

Not good, not good, not good.

Parsons contract not a short enough deal, and the pick if trade occurred would most likely not be lottery. Best I could do

13 Dec 2017 13:01:41
Finding a 3rd team to send Lopez to might help.

13 Dec 2017 16:52:04
rkenne_16, why would Lopez need to go to another team? Salaries still have to match as well. Unless someone is way under cap. Even then, Mirotic ending up a grizzly Isn't fair to team taking on Lopez. I don't think Bulls would do it. A non shot at a lottery pick for dealing both of these guys is the lopside in my eyes, as well, and Parsons 2 more years after this one at 24 mil.

13 Dec 2017 17:10:49
A first alone probably isn't enough to get rid of Parsons. His contract is huge, but I also don't think back up center is a huge need for Memphis. A third team (maybe the Bucks? ) might be willing to give up some small assets for him to the Bulls plus a rotation player to Memphis. Throw in some other small assets from the Grizzlies and it would make more sense for the Bulls.

13 Dec 2017 17:23:01
Who is the back up center in Memphis?

12 Dec 2017 16:31:14
Bulls trade nikola to the suns for Brandon knight and a first to his contract off the suns can decline nikola next year then trade Robin Lopez to the blazers for moe Harkless and a 1st 18.

12 Dec 2017 17:20:43
Toss in two Excedrin tablets and you have a deal.

12 Dec 2017 17:38:38
Supercomputer has his period watch out.

12 Dec 2017 18:42:55
Knight is great, Dunn is coming around though, and Portland has moved on from Lopez.

12 Dec 2017 22:47:57
Um blazers loved Robin when he was with them would help be a good backup.

13 Dec 2017 02:16:06
Blazers loved rolo when he was with Portland would be a nice backup center.

13 Dec 2017 06:19:59
@ someoneslife no disrespect, and you are not wrong. Loved is the key word. Whether smart, or not, or out of respect, let him leave for nothing in return. He also, made 7mil a season with Portland. Lopez now makes 14 mil this year, and next. Harkless is a small forward, Blazers have a glut of PF/ C. M. Leonard instead, might make that pick more appealing. Undoubtedly the pick is the draw, and then I don't think Chicago would offer that to get rid of Lopez. He, and Mirotic are rumored to be on the block, interesting to see what they get. Rumor is they want youth, short term contracts. Lopez is a relatively short term contract. Lots of teams would welcome Harkless, but a 1st rd. Pick unless taking on a bad contract doesn't seem logical.

13 Dec 2017 06:45:53
Who could you see the bulls getting in picks would it be 1st for this draft and what players involved?

13 Dec 2017 06:47:02
Lenoard and Noah Vonleh and a 1st?

13 Dec 2017 08:38:41
Mirotic, and Lopez to Grizzlies for Chandler Parsons, and 1st rd. Pick. Griz would win games, and that pick wouldn't be lottery. Don't know where Griz heads are at with long term plans? And parsons has 2 more seasons after this one. If I was Memphis, and I wanted to make the playoffs I would do this. I scoured every team. This is the best match I could find. It isn't good, but I feel Lopez, and Mirotic would fill some holes for Memphis, although Conley being injured is their biggest problem, but PF, and back up center are almost non-existent there. Both contracts are friendly, and a later 1st rounder won't yield the quality this draft like it did last is my initial thought, but drafts have been getting better every year. No one saw Kuzma, and Jordan Bell being the contributors they are.

08 Dec 2017 17:30:51
The way jazz playing would you guys take rolo and nikola for Rodney hood he’s always hurt might be good for bulls slot him at sf then we take joe Johnson?

09 Dec 2017 05:59:09
makes enough sense for both team, rolo and gobert could be a nice 1-2 down low.
hood could be a nice acquisition for chi’s rebuilding core. jazz might have to add something else, maybe jerebko.

09 Dec 2017 20:11:07
Could we get a first for taking joe Johnson for rolo and nikola.

11 Dec 2017 21:01:25
Who the hell is Rolo?

11 Dec 2017 21:53:51
Robin Lopez nickname.

08 Dec 2017 17:24:41
Bulls trade: grant + mirotic
Suns trade: Ulis.

01 Dec 2017 09:03:15
Okafor to Thunder for Singler and 2 2nd rd picks


Okafor to Bulls for Payne or Felicio and 2nd rd pick


01 Dec 2017 10:59:04
Okafor is worth maybe a mid- to late-second at this point. 76ers may not even get that much.

25 Nov 2017 01:32:02
Bulls trade nikola to New York for Noah andny 2018 1st then bulls trade rolo to lakers for Deng and lakers 2018 1st.

25 Nov 2017 07:11:05
Both would be stupid as hell.

25 Nov 2017 13:20:30
Bulls are under the salary cap.

22 Nov 2017 14:51:28
Chicago gets Deng, Shumpert (uses trade exception), Randle, Zizic, Osman, the Cavs 2021 first top 10 protected

The Cavs get R. Lopez and Green

The Spurs get Clarkson and a Cavs 2nd

The Lakers get Pondexter (exp) and Frye (exp)

22 Nov 2017 15:11:48
I can't see the Bulls doing this. They would want some extra draft picks.

25 Nov 2017 03:25:38
Randle to Spurs, 2018 1st Spurs to Bulls.

22 Nov 2017 08:05:30
Bulls - Knicks - Lakers

Bulls gets:
2019 1st Knicks (1-5 and 20-30 protected)
2020 1st Lakers (Top 5 protected)
2018 2nd back (via Knicks)
2018 2nd Denver (via Lakers)
2019 2nd back (via Lakers)

Knicks gets:

Lakers gets:

Fair value?

22 Nov 2017 14:29:44
I don't think one first (the seconds do little to sweeten the deal as they can be had fairly cheap) gets rid of either Noah or Deng for expiring contracts or cap space alone. When you factor in that the Bulls give up Lopez and Mirotic, who both have positive value imo, this is really bad for the Bulls.

21 Nov 2017 20:28:28
Bulls trades:
Deng, Zubac and 2019 CHI return 2019 second round pick + for Mirotic (exp) Zipser
Leuer, Marjanovic and DET 2018 1st round pick for R. Lopez, Q. Pondexter (exp)

21 Nov 2017 21:05:06
That's not even close to enough to get rid of Deng and I don't see Detroit needing a back up center on Lopez' level if it costs a first.

22 Nov 2017 14:29:36
DET get's rid of 17 million bad contracts (Leuer s contract is 3 years long) and get a good back up who has expiring contract next year (so the 1st round pick (20-30) is worth it) .

20 Nov 2017 03:22:03
Bulls trade Nikola Mirotic to Knicks for Joakim Noah and 2018 and 2019 first rounders.

20 Nov 2017 09:02:53
you can't trade two first round picks in a row.

20 Nov 2017 11:11:06
Make the second one a 2020 and put some light protection on both picks and it's not bad.

20 Nov 2017 12:40:02
i would only give 1st rounder for noah's contract, unless the protection is top 20.
It's only 2 and a half years anymore.
18m is that big anymore
And noah is still a good backup center.

20 Nov 2017 16:57:34
Yeah, this is horrible for NY. I just don’t understand the need to unload Noah. What is NY doing with that cap space? Signing Lebron? If not, why give up two firsts?

That said, it’s a very Knicks type of short sighted with no path kind of move. That doesn’t make it any less dumb though.

20 Nov 2017 17:50:54
Who dislikes my post?
You can't trade two first rounders in consecutive years.

Do you think that's a stupid rule or do you just want to dislike my posts?

Sorry if i didn't like one of your trades. It's just my opion. So get over it. But this is just childish.

20 Nov 2017 19:14:00
Just ignore them Gasupo. Haters got to hate.

20 Nov 2017 21:47:02
I obviously have to disagree with your first comment now right Gusapo?

21 Nov 2017 15:18:28
I'm not that big a fan of Miro that I would make this the deal I would be willing to attach a first to get rid of Noah with.

Yes, I would be willing to move a first to get rid of Noah, but it's got to be for someone better than him.

21 Nov 2017 16:28:50
Triangle a first alone probably isn't enough to get rid of Noah at this point.

17 Nov 2017 22:43:02
Cavs get: Robin Lopez

Bulls get: Zizic and a second.

18 Nov 2017 00:16:12
The Cavs would have to add salary, but I like the idea.

18 Nov 2017 00:18:05
With what money?

18 Nov 2017 13:03:36
Have to be Frye.

21 Nov 2017 00:44:19
Frye and Osman has to be included in the deal to make money work (so the 2nd rounder can be excluded.

17 Nov 2017 22:09:02
January 15 Trade

Bulls - Lakers

Bulls gets:
2 2nd round draft picks

Lakers get:

17 Nov 2017 23:49:31
If the bulls want to keep Randle they have to pay him 15 million or more. So they pay 33 million for him and deng what's about a third of the cap. That will Never happen. Additionally the have Markanen at the 4 what makes Randle obsolete.

18 Nov 2017 00:17:14
Pretty bad for the Bulls. I don't think they're getting enough for Deng and they give up Mirotic who has some value.

14 Nov 2017 22:52:04
Jazz - Lakers

Jazz gets:
2020 1st rd pick (top 3 protected)
2018 2nd rd pick (Nuggets)
2019 2nd rd pick (Bulls)

Lakers gets:

13 Nov 2017 15:33:02
Lakers - Nets

Lakers gets:

Nets gets:
2020 1st from Lakers (Top 3 Protected)
2018 2nd from Denver (via Lakers)
2019 2nd from Chicago (via Lakers)

Lakers gets cap space while Brooklyn take on a bad contract for future picks.

13 Nov 2017 19:01:34
Not enough for Brooklyn to take on Deng and
Give up players that have some value.

14 Nov 2017 14:43:04
lakers send deng attached with a top 3 protected pick along with julius randle who is no longer part of their future for Booker, Acy, Kilpatrick.

11 Nov 2017 00:22:56
Lakers get: F Nikola Mirotic (expiring)
Bulls get: C Jahlil Okafor (rookie deal), G Jerryd Bayless (two years, $18M remaining)
76ers get: G Josh Hart (rookie deal), F Luol Deng (three years, $54M remaining), future protected 1st (Lakers)

Lakers open up 2018 cap space for a small price. The Bulls move Mirotic, who won't play a game for them, while getting Chicago native Jahlil Okafor. 76ers move Okafor, who must be moved, for a prospect in Hart, while taking on Deng's deal in exchange for a pick and dumping Bayless lessens the blow of Deng.

11 Nov 2017 04:24:02
The 76ers are past the point of taking on bad contracts. They're ready to spend on free agents that can help and that's not enough to get rid of Deng anyway.

11 Nov 2017 06:51:33
Think Deng will help the sixers especially with leadership. But a prospect plus a future pick from a already lottery team is worth it. Just top seven protected.

11 Nov 2017 09:15:11
Sixers say no to this deal instantly. Not a chance they take back Deng and his 3 yr/ 54million dollar anchor.

11 Nov 2017 19:40:43
Sixers have 3 guards currently out. (Stauskas, Bayless, and Fultz) It would be wise to trade for a guard. Milwaukee has 1-2 they would trade as they now have more than they need, with the addition of Bledsoe. Milwaukee can trade Vaughn or Dellavedova plus a 2nd rd pick to the Sixers for Okafor. The Bucks need a Center, Philly needs a Guard. Would work for both teams.

12 Nov 2017 10:24:00
But they still have enough guards (McConnell, Simmons, Redick, TLC, Korkmaz) . There's no need for a trade.

09 Nov 2017 13:18:00
The Cavs get Bobby Portis

The Bulls get Zizic and 2 2nd round picks

11 Nov 2017 05:22:00
Trade zizic plus osman plus the cavaliers 1st round pick for okafor 76ers.

09 Nov 2017 05:17:26

Chicago receives Okafor, Jabari and Delly

Milwaukee receives Lopez, 2019 first from Chicago, 2018 second from Phili

Phili receives Bobby Portis

09 Nov 2017 13:50:53
Not bad as long as there is some protection on the Chicago pick.

09 Nov 2017 18:08:27
Like this trade for sixers.

09 Nov 2017 18:27:48
Chi/ Phil.

Philly receives Vaughn or Dellvedova, Plus a 2nd rd. pick.

Milw. receives Okafor.

09 Nov 2017 03:12:54
Bulls trade rolo to Portland to take Evan turners contract plus a 1st for 18.

09 Nov 2017 19:40:57
I wouldn’t pay a first to get a backup center, especially how Ed Davis is playing in Portland right now.

08 Nov 2017 21:04:18

Bucks get Fyre and Portis
- more front court help

Cavs get Delly
- get a player who can play minutes

Bulls get Zizic
- move past Portis and can still deal Mirotic for bad contracts and have a youth rebuild

09 Nov 2017 02:55:42
Cavs pass. They're short on players who can play center right now and that leaves them with only Love on the roster until Thompson comes back. They'll go to an all small line up for stretches, but not having any other bigs isn't going to work. Plus once IT comes back (the latest talk is he's only weeks away), I don't see Delly really having a place in the line up. His defense is solid, shooting and decision making is solid, but he doesn't have the raw ability IT or Rose have on the offensive end and I don't see him taking many minutes at sg over guys like JR, Korver, Wade or even Shumpert (who's length makes him a more versatile defender than Delly) . Plus, Zizic should develop into atleast a solid rotation Big and has a chance to one day be a starting level guy. There is no point for the Cavs to give up any of their young assets unless they get something significantl in return.
