SAC receives: Carter, Asik, Payne

CHI receives: Giles, Cauley-Stein, Mason

Sacramento uses all of their $11M cap space to absorb Asik's terrible contract and combine their assets into a more surefire prospect. They bet big on Carter and Bagley, although you could argue they'd be hesitant to pay Cauley-Stein anyway.

Chicago, who can actually recruit free agents, regains some flexibility after an expensive off-season. They get more chances with good prospects that also fit well with their roster.

Still don't think Chicago does it, but could maybe happen depending on how the season goes.

Simple trade.

Charlotte gets Wiggins and Minnesota gets Batum.

Charlotte gets a much younger player who can be their 2nd scorer next to Walker. Wiggins did very well when he was the 1st or 2nd option on offense, before Butler got to Minnesota. Plus, he could get some teaching from MJ and honestly, Wiggins needs a fresh start.

Minnesota gets a guy who does the little things very well. Minnesota needs a veteran player like that, since I don't think Thibs and his ex Bulls players last beyond this season. Batum's contract also ends two years earlier than Wiggins does.

07 Oct 2018 07:19:35
Hornets already have MKG, just drafted bridges. No need for more over paid player that batum, who can't shoot nor defend. Wiggens for Love makes more sense.

07 Oct 2018 14:42:13
What, what do disagree with, wiggens can shoot and defend or cavs can use young sf to build around or hornets don't need 3rd SF.

06 Oct 2018 00:07:24
New Orleans Pelicans get: Jimmy Butler

Minnesota Timberwolves get: Nikola Mirotic, E'Twaun Moore, and 2019 first-round pick non protected

Pels get a solid 3-4-5 combo with AD, Randle and Butler

Wolves get two ex-Bulls reunited w Thibo and a 1st

07 Oct 2018 17:28:57
I like this trade. The pick is going to be so late with butler in the mix the protection isn't needed. Unless davis goes down or something. I think Jackson or Bluiett would probably have to be thrown in too.

28 Sep 2018 19:15:05
*Lakers get: Bobby Portis
PG Rondo/Ball/Bonga
SG KCP/Hart/Mychaulik
SF B. Ingram/Beasley/Stephenson
PF James/Kuzma/Williams
Ce McGee/Portis/Zubac
- Get another young big for their roster. Losing Wagner is not bad because Portis is better and more experienced and could help contribute now.

*Bulls get: Moritz Wagner, 2021 2nd
PG Dunn/Payne/Arcidiacono
SG Lavine/Holiday/Blakeney
SF Parker/Valentine/Hutchison
PF Markannen/Wagner/Felicio
Ce Carter Jr./Lopez/Asik
- Get something now for Portis (FA) rather lose him for nothing. Wagner is a solid return since he is young and can stretch the floor, also get a second.

Milwaukee get Butler, Dieng
Minnesota get Brogdon, Snell, Vucevic, ORL 2019 2nd, MIL 2020 2nd
Orlando get Bledsoe, Zeller

Bucks make their Big 3 with Giannis, Butler and Middleton. They will have to slip DiVicenzo into starting pg or roll with Dellavedova.

Minny replace Butler with Brogdon and give the keys again to KAT-Wiggins. They get rid off Dieng's deal, while upgrading with Vuc. They get one more wing that Thibs had in Bulls and two 2nds.

Magic get a starting pg they need. They also make more room for Bamba, having behind him Mozgov, Birch and Zeller.

18 Sep 2018 01:27:23
I don't hate this idea.
Bucks give up two expiring players, an over paid wing and a 2nd for a top 10/ 20 player and a bad contract - would say yes

Wolves get 2 quality starters for a player who looks to be gone for by the end of the year and shave 5m/ year between Dieng and Snell - may lean towards a no (may ask for Brogdon + Middleton)

Magic get a good starting PG and clear C mins for their youth. - would say yes.

18 Sep 2018 02:31:39
I believe the Bucks would also agree to this trade! Snell has gone down since last year, Brogdan also has gone down since Bledsoe arrived and Brogdan loss the starting PG job to him. Zeller will either be cut or traded replaced by C Woods. Actually a cheap price to pay to get Butler!

18 Sep 2018 04:18:20
Its a great idea all around, but I think the T wolves would get greedy and ask for Middleton rather than Snell.

18 Sep 2018 14:41:36
@jaymocha I don't think Milwaukee would send Middleton in a trade for Butler. Both are to similar type of players.

18 Sep 2018 15:14:30
I don't see any way Minny trades Butler to the Bucks without Middleton unless there's at least one (probably two) firsts going to Minny. Brogdon has moderate value, Snell is maybe worth a second rounder (though, maybe his value is negative a second rounder), Zeller is a throw in.

Butler is a clear upgrade over Middleton. And since they're both expiring deals, it makes sense to move one for the other.

18 Sep 2018 15:50:57
Trading Middleton with Butler won't put Milwaukee into a much better situation since they will still be with Bledsoe at their Top 3 minus an asset (let's say Brogdon) . Also, Giannis could be left alone next year since Middleton is much more likely to remain a Buck. IMO Butler would stay in Milwaukee only in a team with Giannis and Middleton, because that would give him a real chance for a ring.

18 Sep 2018 17:50:48
The Bucks have 4 options if a Middleton/ Butler swap is possible:

Trade for Butler and pair him with Giannis. You're a top 3 team in the east. Resign Butler and stay a really good team that probably can't compete for a championship.

Trade for Butler, have one good year, and then he bolts. Now you're a lottery team. And you have a really good chance of Giannis asking out or leaving.

Keep Middleton, he resigns for an enormous deal that makes him overpaid, and you're a good team that is a 4-8 seed in the east again. And you have a really good chance of Giannis asking out or leaving.

Keep Middleton, and he walks. Now you're a lottery team again. And you have a really good chance of Giannis asking out or leaving.

I'd roll the dice on getting the better player, sacrificing the role player (Brogdon) and the increased likelihood of losing that player. I think the only way the Bucks convince Giannis to sign his next extension is if he has an all star by his side. Middleton isn't that player.

18 Sep 2018 19:13:21
Middleton defense not on Butler level. Middleton can shoot better. But Middleton a top 35 while Butler a top 15. Middleton is trying to go from role player to all star while Butler been an All star. But I give Middleton props over years he improved his shooting greatly over the years and last year lead league in true shooting. I like Middleton but he not similar to Butler he a tier or two under Butler. But he no longer a role player he a borderline all star. I want to see that play off play in the season.

15 Sep 2018 17:57:04
Magic Trade Timofey Mozgov

Bulls Trade Robin Lopez

Second Trade

Magic Trade Jerian Grant Terrace Ross 2019 first round pick (protected)1-15 pick to Hornets not unprotected pick

Hornets Trade Kemba Walker to Magic

Magic Trade Aaron Gordon to Wolves

Wolves Trade Jimmy Butler to Magic

Magic needed to start winning games making the playoffs this year

I think Wolves & Hornets will take that Offers

Magic will make a pursed to Re-sign Kemba Walker and Jimmy Butler

Salary match smart not to Trade the lottery picks likes Boston robbed the nets

15 Sep 2018 19:54:42
Every trade you poat is one sided 8n favor of Magic, ao please just stop.

15 Sep 2018 21:08:32
Sometimes it's one sided for other teams.

15 Sep 2018 23:08:31
Football father lmao.

16 Sep 2018 02:38:07
Ok daddy nfl.

11 Sep 2018 01:46:33
Finishing the TimberBulls:

NY receive: Dieng
TimberBulls receive: Noah, '19 & '20 2nds

11 Sep 2018 12:59:49
Omg your so off. U can't trade 19 mil for 2.5 mil.

11 Sep 2018 13:39:56
Dieng’s contract for minn is 15 million for 3 more years. Make it a first round pick and I think Minnesota does it.

11 Sep 2018 13:50:33
shizzee… Puff Puff, pass right.

11 Sep 2018 15:00:09
Don't think rose bowl caught the link between the salary and noah being waived part.

11 Sep 2018 19:10:23
Definitely a possibility. But Minnesota says no unless they get a first. Dieng is a decent player, Noah straight up trash.

11 Sep 2018 23:22:02
I like the trade as presented. Noah used to play for Tibbs. Tibbs is trying to assemble Chicago Bulls North. Why not add Noah. Deing isn't that good and is overpaid. Noah used to be good. Who knows if he is appreciated, if he can play or not. If not, at least they get two 2nds and Tibbs can be happy.

12 Sep 2018 00:11:55
I got excited dieng and deng mix up. Knicks need a 3rd team for Dieng.

31 Aug 2018 20:37:58
Bulls trade cam Payne and asik to suns for Tyson chandler.

01 Sep 2018 04:18:56
Oh wow?

22 Aug 2018 08:15:35
Cha send: Batum, Biyombo
Receive: Anderson, Asik, Melton
Cut over 10m in salary this year and free cap-space for years to come.

Bulls send: Asik, Holiday
Receive: Biyombo, '19 1st (Hou)
Gain a late 1st for adding a 6m of salary next year.

Hou send: Anderson, Nene, Melton, '19 1st, '23 2nd, 3m cash
Receive: Batum, Holiday
Get some useable players to go against GSW.

Sac send: Pick that won't convey
Receive: Nene, '23 2nd, 3m cash
Use cap space to get a pick

22 Aug 2018 19:39:08
Try MKG in any scenario instead of Batum.

19 Aug 2018 22:14:51

Wizards get Portis/ Payne

Bulls get Oubre Jr/ Meeks and a 2nd round pick

Wizards get a good young 4 and a backup guard 2 areas they have a need in

Bulls get a young wing, which they lack, and a draft pick

Gives all the players involved a chance to play a bigger role on their new teams.

19 Aug 2018 20:24:49
Crazy idea, big shake up:

Wolves/ Blazers/ Bulls

Wolves get McCollum/ Turner/ Leonard from the Blazers, Payne/ Portis/ future protected 1st from the Bulls

Blazers get Butler/ Gibson from the Wolves, Lopez/ Hutchison from the Bulls

Bulls get Wiggins

Wolves get a pretty good haul for a free agent that may leave and get off of a bad contract, get a star player signed long term to pair with KAT and some solid younger pieces in areas of need for them plus a draft pick

Blazers take a risk in hopes Butler resigns
there to play with Dame, improve for this year, and get a ton of cap flexibility even if they resign Butler (Lopez/ Gibson is 28 million)

19 Aug 2018 20:48:20
Stupid thumbs. my explanation got cut off early

Bulls get Wiggins, a good young "star" player that still has a ton of upside at the position they are weakest at, while giving up players that might be buried on the depth chart.

19 Aug 2018 21:06:39
Wiggens is overpaid. With Parker at sf, i don't think wiggens is needed.

19 Aug 2018 21:51:57
Salaries don't add up. Wolves have too much incoming, not enough outgoing.

19 Aug 2018 22:28:45
Isnt bulls af getting 30 million over next two years? Parker.

20 Aug 2018 00:36:27
I agree Wiggins is overpaid, doesn't mean he isn't a good player, he's young with plenty of room to grow, Chicago isn't giving up the world to get him here either, I'd imagine they'd probably play Parker at 4 at least part of the time and it's not like they have many good wing players, Wiggins could start at 2 or 3 for them, and the salaries do work according to the trade machine, Wolves have approx 58 going in and 59 going out.

20 Aug 2018 01:25:24
Wiggens Dieng for Lopez Asik Felicio.

His value for being paid 2x as much as worth.

16 Aug 2018 02:08:00
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.

06 Aug 2018 03:57:32
3 team trade

Bulls get deng

Lakers holiday and valentine

Mavs get felicio and lakers 1rst round pick 2019

06 Aug 2018 12:38:05
Am I missing something, or did the Bulls give up a good young prospect to take back Deng?

06 Aug 2018 13:11:43
Why would the Bulls bring in Deng and get nothing in compensation for it? To get rid of Deng, the team picking him up needs to be getting at least a 1st and a 2nd.

06 Aug 2018 14:13:13
Bulls get rid of felicio contract i rather over pay deng then keep any of those 3 players they giving away lakers 1rst round pick was bulls comp but they move it to dallas for them taking felicio. This also frees playing time up for blakeney and hutchinson.

06 Aug 2018 21:59:53
Lakers fans should learn from cavs fan, smh.

06 Aug 2018 01:59:58
NY Cap clearing moves:

Bulls receive: Noah, Mudiay, NY '20 1st
Send: Lopez, Asik
Get a G prospect, 1st for clearing C minutes and only taking on an extra 7m (Noah - Asik)

Mavs receive: Lee, Thomas
Send: Matthews, '20 2nd
Get two three and D wings to help pursue a playoff spot.

Kings receive: THJ, Asik, Mavs '20 2nd
Send: Shumpert, Randolph
Get a solid young wing under contract for 3 years (no one is signing for the Kings any time soon)

NY receive: Matthews, Lopez, Shumpert, Randolph (all expiring:
Send: Noah, THJ, Lee, Thomas, Mudiay, '20 top 10 protected 1st

Will have space for 2 max players (3 if they take pay-cuts) a high '19 pick, Knox, Porzingis and Ntilikina core. Could be a top 3 team in the East in '19/20

07 Aug 2018 00:37:37
Big wiz, 96 mil in cap space from your idea. Knicks can sign 3 max deals still extend porzingis afterwards.

29 Jul 2018 05:55:25
3 team trade:

Cavs get Deng and Lakers 1st pick

Lakers get Korver and Lopez

Bulls get Hill plus cash?

I know cavs are the loser for this trade by getting Deng's contract but the purpose of this is to have some capspace and a 1st rd pick.. George Hill will hinder either Sexton or Clarkson potential

LeBron reuniting with Korver and getting a defensive big man Lopez

Bulls need a Point Guard, Hill would be a good fit and there's a big log jam on their bigmen, Carter need to start and Lopez got to go..

29 Jul 2018 14:21:19
Lakerscant trade first two years in a row.

29 Jul 2018 15:57:48
2018 draft has occurred so they can trade 2019 if they like but not 2020 along with 2019.

29 Jul 2018 19:47:13
Giannis is better than derozan. Middleton is better than Lowry. Yet the raptors were like 20 games better than the Bucks.

At least one of those statements has to be false. I’m going with the Middleton/ Lowry statement.

30 Jul 2018 15:17:45
Bmiller66 more goes into a winning team than 2 players. Raptors had a better coach and a better bench.

27 Jul 2018 23:12:52
Spurs get: Wilson Chandler, Robin Lopez

Bulls get: Pattly Mills

76ers get: Pau Gasol.

27 Jul 2018 23:52:53
Mills isn’t worth his contract and still has 3 years left. There is no point for the Bulls to do that when Lopez is about to be off the books.

28 Jul 2018 01:11:53
Without picks not happening.

28 Jul 2018 02:17:51
Sixers pass. Chandler is expiring, and is at a position of need (backup forward) for sixers.

27 Jul 2018 22:33:18
Spurs trade Pau Gasol to Philadelphia for Wilson Chandler and Spurs trade Patty Mills to Chicago for Robin Lopez.

Spurs get a SF and Center on expiring contracts. Frees up money in 2019 to go after Jimmy Butler or Tobias Harris.

27 Jul 2018 05:03:15
3 team trade

Bulls get Tyson Chandler(exp),Frank Kaminsky(exp) and TJ Warren

Suns get Kemba Walker,Marvin Williams and Robin Lopez(exp)

Hornets get Kris Dunn and Dragon bender

Bulls get expiring contracts for more cap after the season and get a good young player to add to there young core

Suns get kemba who would make them much better

Hornets shed cap space and get younger

27 Jul 2018 13:04:35
Bulls take on more 2019 salary in this deal, not less. Warren is scheduled to make $10.5M next year, Dunn’s 2019-20 is $5.4M.

27 Jul 2018 13:12:38
Bulls say no easily.

28 Jul 2018 06:15:15
Hornets say no easily.

23 Jul 2018 04:35:07
Okc trades - Singler and Ferguson
Cle trades - Korver

Okc trades - Felton and 2019 2nd
