Bulls trade spurs

Bulls get derozen

Spurs get valentine and #7 pick and a future first round pick

Bulls imo should move lavine to pg he avg. Almost 5 assists a game. His defense is weak but could be his best to gaurd a smaller pg

Carter jr

17 Jun 2019 18:03:46
Lavine at pg would be great for every other scoring pg.

17 Jun 2019 18:45:26
Isn't Lavine at SG great for every other scoring SG too Shiller? It's not that he can't play the position or keep up, it's his overall defensive skill. Not sure which guard position he plays has any effect on that.

With a ball dominant SG like Derozan, I think Lavine would be fine at PG.

17 Jun 2019 19:53:57
Lavine can't guard sgs so fast PGs would light him up. DeRozan can't guard faat guys. Bulls need a Beverly type at pg. Lavine is a chucker that's it.

Magic Trade Markelle Fultz 2020 first round pick (Top 10 protection) to Bulls

Bulls Trade 7 pick to Magic

Bulls trade atlanta

Atlanta get #7 pick and felicio

Bulls get #10 and # 17 picks

16 Jun 2019 14:44:18
Atlanta can probably trade just the #10 for #7 and Felicio. Bulls want to get rid of Felicio's contract so my guess is they would move down 3 spots to get rid of him.

16 Jun 2019 05:32:14
Pelicans Trade Solomon Hill Jrue Holiday 4 pick

Bulls Trade Zach Lavine Kris Dunn Christian Felicio

Pelicans sign NIkola Vucevic 4 yrs 130 millions

Elfrid Payton renounce right

Julius Randle renounce right

16 Jun 2019 06:11:50
Holiday is worth way more than that.

16 Jun 2019 06:53:06
No he don’t that a fair Trade.

16 Jun 2019 12:27:39
That deal is awful for the Pelicans. They’re giving up the best player and the 4th pick.

16 Jun 2019 14:08:35
Take out the 4th pick to make it fair.

16 Jun 2019 14:49:48
Holiday scores as much as lavine but plays defense and isn't hurt as often. Holiday is a proven guy not a one year wonder.

16 Jun 2019 04:53:47
Cavs Trade Cedi Osman Jordan Clarkson 2019 first round pick (rockets)

Bulls Trade Zach Lavine

What y'all think?

16 Jun 2019 14:09:33
Why do the Cavs want LaVine?

16 Jun 2019 00:51:05
Blazers offseason

Blazers - Porter
Bulls - Turner(exp) Leonard(exp) and Simons

- Bulls add 3 & D SF who can be their 3rd scorer on the wing
- Bulls adds PG prospect who they can actually give minutes too plus cap space

Blazers vet min free agent targets
Elfrid Payton PG
Justin Holiday SG
Wilson Chandler F

Resign Enes Kanter(min) and Aminu(full mle)
Draft KZ Okpala


16 Jun 2019 02:40:45
I think Aminu will get overpaid elsewhere.

14 Jun 2019 20:04:33
Okc doesn't want to do the repeater tax. They are a small market and way over spending and way under achieving. I believe that they will be unable to find takers for bloated contracts that don't belong to Russ and PG. So, I believe their best option (although very unlikely) is to rebuild.

Hawks receive George, Felicio

Bulls receive Russ, Roberson, Anderson

Okc receives Porter, Bazemore, Plumlee, Markkanen, Hutchinson, #8, #10, #35

Hawks have a great core and George could help catapult them to contender status. They can afford the George contract with all their core guys on rookie deals. Adding a mvp caliber, 2-way player would be huge.

Bulls are a team without a star. Markkanen looks promising, but Russ could be the guy in Chicago. They've been on the hunt for a point guard for years. They also retain their first which is big.

Okc can't afford to have their current roster unless they win a title, and their current roster won't win a title. So this continues...

Okc receives Parsons, two future 2nd rounders

Memphis receives Steven Adams

Memphis had Valanciunas opt out recently, and could use a guy like Adams. JJJ is the future in Memphis, but he needs an enforcer who can do the dirty work. Adams is that guy. Ditching Parsons is a bonus.

OKC buys out Parsons or Bazemore. They save money and have the picks necessary to start over. I believe their window has closed, but a nucleus of Markkanen, Culver, Reddish, Hutchinson, Grant is intriguing.

14 Jun 2019 20:24:01
They can do much better than that for a rebuild. If they get rid of Russ and PG.

14 Jun 2019 20:39:38
Ric- maybe for George. I can't see Russ bringing back much.

14 Jun 2019 22:03:16
That’s way to much for Russ. No way are you getting Markannen. The guy is already on the verge of being a star. I’d rather have him straight up than Russ.

14 Jun 2019 22:44:04
Shiller they might not get much for Westbrook but in that 1st trade their return is for George and Russ both. If they move both of them they can do better than that.

16 Jun 2019 04:53:18
Might be nice for Hawks to rid themselves of a couple bad contracts but not at the expense of two lotto picks. Besides, I don’t see the return fitting their needs anyway.

13 Jun 2019 22:43:29
Lakers Get: Anthony Davis

Bulls Get: Pick #4, Solomomn Hill

Pelicans Get: Zach Lavine, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, LA 2020 1st Rd, 2021 LA 1st Rd

LA gets there guy

Bulls grab Garland at 4 and still have pick #7 to add another piece

Pelicans get 3 young starters and multiple picks (I understand they won't be all that high)

13 Jun 2019 23:54:26
Use lube on the pelicans. Geez.

14 Jun 2019 00:47:55
So pels get 2 late first rounds a broken pg and guy with clots? Btw can't trade firsts back to back years.

14 Jun 2019 01:40:20
Lakers can't trade consecutive year first round picks. It would have to be #4, 2021 and 2023.

Also, you think Lavine + taking S. Hill's expiring salary = #4 pick? Please refresh my memory. What did Chicago give up to get Lavine?

13 Jun 2019 00:10:54
Lakers - AD
Hawks - Ingram
Bulls - Ball and lakers 2020 1st
Pelicans - Kuzma 7th 8th 10th

Lakers draft Garland
Sign D.Green J.Green and T.Ariza

Pelicans draft
Zion (1)
White (7)
Reddish (8)
Hayes (10)


Young/Huerter/Ingram/Collins/Bol Bol



13 Jun 2019 00:26:34
That sucked for the Hawks and Pelicans.

13 Jun 2019 01:31:14
Throw the 4th to pels maybe it works.

13 Jun 2019 01:55:56
Lakers should keep someone on their young players. C'mon let NOLA and Lebron f*** themselves.

13 Jun 2019 01:58:05
If the lakers are willing to trade kuzma. Ingram and ball and a. 2020 1st round why would any other teams need to be involved but the pelicans who would do that?

12 Jun 2019 22:50:10
Bulls - Lakers - Pelicans

Bulls: E'Twaun Moore and #4 pick (From LAL)

Lakers: Anthony Davis

Pelicans: Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Zach LaVine.

Bulls draft
#4 Jarrett Culver
#7 Coby White

Pelicans trade Jrue Holiday

PG Ball
SG LaVine
SF Ingram
PF Zion

12 Jun 2019 22:55:43
I'm sorry, Bulls are not getting the 4th pick for Zach LaVine.

13 Jun 2019 00:17:50
If Lakers think ball is worth the 6th lavine is worth the 4th.

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


12 Jun 2019 00:06:26
Bulls - Wall and Mahinmi(exp)
Rockets - Porter
Wizards - CP3

Bulls reasoning - If Garland goes to Lakers and White to Suns then Bulls would most likely draft Hunter or Reddish. Wall will be most of next or even all so they still can get another high pick.

Rockets reasoning - Gets off of CP3 contract and adds a 3&D forward

Wizards reasoning - If they keep Beal then they should aim for playoffs. Wall won't play much next year and CP3 adds more spacing than Wall does. This also give Beal a PG who doesn't need the ball all the time to be a threat




12 Jun 2019 01:33:22
Why for the Bulls. They lose a good wing for John walls expensive corpse.

12 Jun 2019 02:11:08
I’m a wizards fan and I even I know that the bulls would never do this. They would be taking on 2 awful contracts and would not even have the guarantee that wall would be good.

11 Jun 2019 06:02:50
Lakers get AD
Bulls get ZO
Pels get Beal, Ingram, Wagner and two future first round picks from Lakers
Wizards get Dunn, Hart, 4th and 7th

11 Jun 2019 06:16:07
Bad for pels. 2 futures will be late firsts. Leave wizards out.

11 Jun 2019 07:50:51
Why should the Bulls do that. Lonzo isn't worth ging up Dunn and especially not worth the 7th Pick. Let alone both together.
His value is maybe in the Markelle Fultz range.

11 Jun 2019 02:53:30
3 team trade salaries work. i know it won't happen just an idea, and i'm obviously an OKC fan i have made that known and it benefits them, but i honestly think it benefits the other teams involved. What are yalls thoughts? How far off is it from working?

CHI get Adams Schroder and their 2020 2nd back from OKC, and another future 2nd from OKC

OKC get Davis, Hill, Dunn, Porter Jr.

NOP get Westbrook, Hamidou Diallo, Carter Jr., OKC 2019 1st and OKC future 1st.

CHI gets rid of Porter jr's contract who has a bigger and worse contract than Adams. They upgrade their PG which they need, and they get back 2 2nds and their 2nd could be a higher 2nd next year.

OKC needs change and they take a bet on Davis and hope he will resign to play and compete for a title with George. GSW are likely bout to break up their big 4 so a Davis George duo could be a great recruiting tool for thunder to resign Davis. They take on Hill to make salary work. The take Dunn and hope they can turn him around and give him a 2nd chance, and they take on Porter Jr contract put him on bench to bring scoring to the 2nd unit. They also shed about 8 mil in salary relieving some luxury tax.

NOP wants a current all star that would be Russ a future all star Carter Jr could be that they also get Diallo as a young asset that could develop nicely and they want picks they get 2 1sts. This package fits everything they are asking for and they may not get a lot of offers that has everything they are asking for. They stay in the playoff run with Russ and Holiday while doing a mini rebuild.

11 Jun 2019 10:55:50
I’d much rather have Carter and porter than Schroeder and Adams.

11 Jun 2019 01:27:33
Lakers - Pacers - Pelicans

- Indiana get Ingram, Kuzma, Hart and 4th

- Bulls get Ball

- Nola get Oladipo, Turner, Bulls 7th pick and Pacers 18th pick

- La get Davis

11 Jun 2019 02:17:55
Bulls get hosed.

11 Jun 2019 02:31:00
Huge no from Indiana.

11 Jun 2019 03:19:47
Pacers get robbed.

11 Jun 2019 03:26:31
Not sure indy does it but not a horrible trade. I don't see why for pacers.

11 Jun 2019 03:27:42
Bad trades for Bulls and Pacers.

11 Jun 2019 04:02:51
Why would Indiana be willing to give up a top 3 shooting guard in the league and a 23 year old dpoy candidate to get back Ingram and Kuzma?

11 Jun 2019 07:41:43
I think it's a fair return for Indy, but i can't see us doing this.
There's no need to rebuilt.

12 Jun 2019 12:15:13
Pacers would have $38 mm in outgoing salaries, and $7 mm in incoming. Doesn't meet guidelines. Oladipo is untouchable.

10 Jun 2019 18:38:29
Lakers trade - Ball
Bulls trade - Carter

- Bulls draft Hunter

Lakers trade - Kuzma
Heat trade - Richardson and 2nd

- Heat draft Langford

Lakers draft Garland
Resign Rondo and Chandler

Free agents
Danny Green 2yr 20mil
Trevor Ariza - 1yr 8mil


10 Jun 2019 22:44:06
Trevor ariza taking a 50% pay cut why? He had a chance last summer to sign with contenders and chose money. Why different this summer?

09 Jun 2019 11:42:12
OKC: B Griffin and J Richardson

Detroit: R Westbrook and J Johnson

Miami: Jackson+ A Robertson+ 1rnd pick Detroit 2020+ 1rnd pick OKC 2023+ 2020 2rnd pick Chicago(from OKC)+ 2021 2rnd pick LA (from Detroit)

OKC get a home town player and great starting five
SF:P George
sixt: J grant

Westbrook can play in a weaker conference and Detroit needs an exiting player to sell tickets and jerseys

Miami get assets and shorter contracts so they can go for a sign and trade for a star or wait and have the capspace in 2020.

06 Jun 2019 18:00:15
Thunder get Love, Jr Smith, Dellavadova, Hutchinson, Cavs 2nd, Bulls 2nd

Cavs get Adams, Schröder, Roberson, Felicio, okc 1st

Bulls get Thompson, Nader

Cavs retool and aim for fewer years of salary. They also add another first to their team. Adams could be a good fit next to Nance. Schröder can play the same role behind Sexton that he did with Russ.

Bulls swap Felicio for the more expensive Thompson but for only a year. They can keep Nader or waive him for savings.

Okc goes all in as their window will be limited. Buyout Smith also saves money against the luxury tax. Go sign Shumpert/Tyreke Evans as your sixth man. Draft Schofield, Edwards in the second.

Russ, Delly, Edwards
Ferguson, Diallo
PG, Hutchinson, Schofield
Grant, Patterson
Love, Noel

06 Jun 2019 20:16:52
The Cavs can likely get a pick in that same range or better with the J. R. contract on it’s own without giving up Love or a 2nd.

06 Jun 2019 20:44:04
Not really sure about that. With Cavs and all teams - Sac and Dallas are over the salary cap, Cavs have to take back nearly matching salary which will keep them over the luxury tax for next season. Plus, there is the limited number of teams with actual 1st round picks to toss into the equation as well. Cleveland is basically looking at OKC, Portland and Milwaukee. There is a very outside shot at Miami but it would have to be something like this

Miami sends (Olynk or waiters) + #13
For JR Smith + #26.

That's about it.

06 Jun 2019 23:42:38
They can always pocket the money. That isn’t worth it for the Cavs. They’d need more just to take on Schroeder. Adams doesn’t help them. Roberson is a total unknown. They’re losing like all of their veteran leadership. They give up a 2nd and the only asset they get back is the 21s t pick. Nothing about this trade helps the Cavs.

07 Jun 2019 05:11:49
Absolutely they should waive Smith for the salary savings. The amount they save next year will be about the same as the salaries for their 2 first round picks. So it kind of works out.

06 Jun 2019 06:24:20
Memphis Chicago

Chicago get Conley

Memphis gets Otto Porter + 2019 and 2020 Memphis 2nd rpunders returned.

Then Chicago use pick #7 to draft a wing.

06 Jun 2019 09:50:07
Conley is not a salary dump he has better value than that. Maybe phx could give the 6th pick and pieces for him as rumored they are willing to do it for vet guard.

06 Jun 2019 16:20:09
Usa phoenix already said they're not giving up the 6th pick for conley, much less adding anything else.

06 Jun 2019 18:44:02
The only teams I see givong up a 2019 first rounder for Conley is Utah or Boston. That's about it.

06 Jun 2019 20:50:07
But maybe Chicago should hold out and see if DLo gets waived by the Nets for Kyrie and friends.

04 Jun 2019 17:26:59
Okc overhaul

Okc gets Hayward, Len, Yabusele, Williams, Boston 2nd
Boston gets Bazemore, Plumlee, Prince, Diallo, Okc 1st
Atl gets Adams, Roberson, Ojeleye, Nader

Adams and Roberson would work best on a roster filled with shooters. Atlanta has got a few good ones and can add more this offseason. They ditch Bazemore.

Boston gets options with this deal. They can buyout Bazemore's final year and lower payroll. Or they can let him play a year in a bench role. This sets them up to pay their young guys and replace Hayward's production with more young talent. They add a first to help them in their AD chase.


Okc gets Dunn, Hutchinson
Bulls get Schröder

Bulls still need a point guard, and I think Schröder rebuilt his stock in Okc this season. He has the chops to be a starting 1 in the league and is on a reasonable salary.

Okc does these two deals and really shakes up their roster and rebuild around Russ and PG. Hayward gives them a legit third option who can significantly help their shooting woes. They then have lots of low salary guys who can help them for a few years with their window open.

I'd like to see them keep Noel. They like keeping a roster spot open, but I also love the idea of keeping Felton. Use the second rounder on Schofield. I think he could end up being a Draymond Green type of player: good college player labeled as a late pick role player who actually blossoms in the right situation into a star.


Russ, Dunn, (Felton)
PG, Ferguson, Burton
Hayward, Hutchinson, (Schofield)
Grant, Patterson, Yabusele
Len, (Noel), Williams

04 Jun 2019 17:52:18
I think Schroder has proven he's a bottom 10 starting PG when he starts, and proved he's overpaid.

04 Jun 2019 18:47:30
Schroeder is going to need a first attached at the very least to dump and maybe more given that he has two years left. He’s a borderline starter making to much money. There are cheaper better options in the draft and free agency.

04 Jun 2019 19:36:40
Boston cuts out Atlanta and keeps Adams.

05 Jun 2019 00:24:07
Either way i think it would be better for both teams if it was just 2 not 3 of them just OKC and ATL or just OKC and BOS. OKC would prob rather Bazemore expiring of Haywards long expensive contract. But if they do get hayward they don't need ATL to make it happen.

06 Jun 2019 00:12:44
As a hawks fan why would Atlanta take on 4th tier talent players with long term deals in exchange for 35 million in expiring contracts? we have 2 lottery picks this year with 43 million in cap space, rookie of year candidate and a 20 and 10 power forward still on his rookie contract. We are looking forward not backwards. You guys don't think before you post.
