What are some trade ideas for how Chicago could bring ulis back home? I would love to see him back home.

23 May 2017 07:34:26
Tyler. Call home! Rickybobby misses you.

Bulls offer a second rd. pick.

23 May 2017 08:26:43
Suns like him. Dnt think there trading him, plus Booker was instrumental in bringing him here. Suns probably dnt want to piss Booker off right now.

23 May 2017 02:34:34
Bulls get #3 pick, #39 pick, Kahlil Okafor (via Sixers)
Celtics get Jimmy Butler (via Bulls)
Sixers get #1 pick (via Celtics)

Sixers get PERFECT fit for their team in Markelle Fultz
Celtics get star to pair with IT and attract others
Bulls get possible replacement for butler in Josh Jackson, young center with untapped potential, and an early second round pick

seems like all teams win, what do we think?

23 May 2017 04:18:44
76ers would at least need to add a future 2nd to Chicago.

22 May 2017 16:21:09

CHI receive Okafor and PHI picks #39,#50

NYK receive Bulls 1st round #16, PHI pick #46

PHI receive NYK 1st round #8, Noah

22 May 2017 16:58:22
Doubt the Bulls would give up the 16th pick for a backup center who can't rebound or block shots.

22 May 2017 18:12:27
Okafor is perfect for the Celtics.

22 May 2017 18:30:29
A backup center that is a decent scorer actually feels about right for the 16th pick. The history of the 16th pick is pretty similar: vucivic, Babbitt, speights, nick young, James Johnson.

I like the move for Chicago. I'm not a fan of Okafor as a starter, but as a backup he's solid. The trade really hinges on the knicks being that desperate to unload Noah. I don't think I would be that desperate, as it means the knicks will continue to try to improve through free agency, which hasn't been incredibly successful for them.

22 May 2017 19:01:49
Shizee. the Celtics who are in the process of being swept? Those Celtics?

22 May 2017 19:39:37
Except the Celtics won last night, so the brooms were put away. ;)

22 May 2017 20:33:21
The key to a multi-team deal is it has to work for all the teams. There's no reason for the Sixers to agree to this. Noah would be a large drag on the salary cap, while riding the bench. Take Noah out, then 3 2nd-rounders for the NYK's pick at #8? I don't think the Knicks would do that. So just take Philly out.

22 May 2017 21:56:54
It makes perfect sense for Phili. They aren't going to sign a big time free agent, why not use their cap space to get a high end asset? Noah's contract expires the same year that Simmons does, so the timeline lines up perfectly.

22 May 2017 22:07:09
I agree. But I think the Bulls won't take Noah. That's why I added the Sixers. Overall 3 2nd-rounders Okafor and the Noah might be enough.
Even if I don't think the Knicks would agree to a straight deal with the sixers.

22 May 2017 23:12:34
I like it for a sixers. even they got noah's contract.

23 May 2017 02:31:37
Noah to Philly is simply idiotic.

23 May 2017 04:27:46
Noah to philly make sense as long as the #8pick is attach. they can use him as third string center. i think theirs no A class free agent will go to sixers next season. maybe after a couple of years, that time philly is a good destination for A class free agent. you can unload noah's expiring contract using a couple of 2nd round picks or 2020 1st okc. and worst of worst a stretch provision (6m a yr) .

22 May 2017 13:12:48
boston: J Butler

Chicago: E Bledsoe+ 1rnd pick 4+ 1rnd pick 2018 Miami+ 1rnd pick Miami 2021+ swap rights 2018

Phoenix: 1st pick Nets (Draft Ball)+ T Zeller

C: Chriss
SG: Booker
PG: Ball

22 May 2017 14:22:43
Celtics have enough future assets to get this done without PHX included. besides that, Suns giving up way too much.

22 May 2017 14:50:22
The Celtics are NOT trading the #1 pick for Butler.

22 May 2017 18:14:10
Nobody realize that Bledose is another knee injury away from being D. Rose.

22 May 2017 12:13:23

Celtics get Jimmy Butler

Bulls get #1 pick and 2019 top 10 protected 1st (via BOS), Jahlil Okafor, Justin Anderson, #39 pick and a future 2nd (via PHI)

76ers get Avery Bradley and Tyler Zeller.

22 May 2017 14:51:37
That is ridiculous. Same answer as above.

22 May 2017 18:21:37
Celtics need another interior superstar scorer to go and unless the Pelicans are giving 1 up there is not 1 worth 1st overall pick.

21 May 2017 06:53:08
76ers offseason

76ers: Jimmy Butler and #38 pick

Bulls:#3 pick,#36,#50,2018 1st rnd pick, jhalil okafor and robert covinghton

Kyle lowry-Max
Paul Millsapp-Max
Darren Collison-3yr/15 mill
Tony Snell-4 yr/24 mill

2017/18 lineup

Kyle Lowry/Darren Collison
Jimmy Butler/Gerald Henderson
Ben Simmons/Tony Snell
Paul Millsapp/Dario Saric
Joel Embiid/Tiago Splitter

21 May 2017 08:11:22
Those are some aggressive moves for the 76ers. Personally I think George Hill or Jrue Holiday would be a better fit than Lowry as they can play off-ball better allowing Simmons to better develop and play his best role and are younger but obviously not as good as Lowry. I think its tempting for the 76ers to pursue since it elevates them to 2nd best team in the east without sacrificing much of the future (they still have Lakers 2018 pick and Kings 2019 picks in addition to Simmons and Embiid) .

The trade for Butler I think may need a little more to convince Bulls especially if the 2018 pick is the 76ers (getting Butler alone severely decreases the value of the pick) although the Lakers pick could be volatile as well with them potentially dealing for George. However, #3 is a strong center piece with Jackson having superstar potential and 76ers definitely have the assets to make something work.

21 May 2017 21:01:13
Philly is not going to spend all that money to get half way up a ladder. Foolish.

21 May 2017 22:30:45
Half way up the ladder? . they would have the best roster in the east.

22 May 2017 01:30:37
What's on this site doesn't translate to the best roster in the East. The odds of that happening are ZERO!

But for laffs let's say that deal happened. Is Simmons going to be healthy? Is Embiid going to be healthy? There's lots of variables that could go wrong. Just saying. This is not an NBA Fantasy League. And that was an NBA Fantasy League thought.

legitamte contender in west amd deffinatly challenges warriors for top team in the west

21 May 2017 06:28:13
Sixers own that LAL pick.

21 May 2017 07:39:40
So Magic give up
Ross, 33rd pick
Deng, Mcw and 38th pick

They add a older player on a bad contract a pg with very similar flaws to Payton and a lesser 2nd rounder. Dillusional lakers fan strikes again.

21 May 2017 08:13:49
I'm confused why Magic are even in this trade. Lakers getting Ross just makes it more difficult for them to sign Lowry and George. They also aren't getting much of anything for giving him up and taking on Deng's bad contract.

20 May 2017 20:17:02
LAL: J Butler

CHI: C Brewer (exp), D Russell, #2 pick

Sign P George in 2018, Butler & George will attract other free agents to sign

SG: Butler
SF: George
PF: Randle/Nance

20 May 2017 20:45:38
Lakers say no. We have no incentive in trading for a superstar to try and build a contender right now. Warriors and Cavs will dominate the NBA for the next 5 seasons which will be right on par for when Russell, Ingram, Randle and Lonzo will start to hit their prime.

20 May 2017 20:52:07
You still have Deng and Mozgov's contracts to deal with.

20 May 2017 22:45:03
@carl Which is why we shouldn't try to build a contender right now. Their contracts will expire by he time we are ready to compete.

20 May 2017 16:28:03

76ers get CJ McCollum, Meyers Leonard, and #26 pick (via POR)

Blazers get Jimmy Butler, #39 and #50 picks (via PHI)

Bulls get #3 pick (via PHI), Jahlil Okafor, Justin Anderson, and #20 pick (via POR)

20 May 2017 16:51:04
Love this trade for philly.

20 May 2017 17:54:02
I think the deal works for all teams. McCollum would be a perfect fit for 76ers. He'd be what they hoped Monk would become if they drafted him but is further along and can help 76ers make the playoffs (especially with Bulls dealing Butler and Pacers likely to deal George) .

Butler would be a great fit for Portland alongside Lillard and while they are at it they clear some cap space. They'd still have the #15 pick so they could make some moves or use it to help dump a contract like Crabbe (possibly to the Bulls in this trade) .

Bulls get an alright return on Butler with an heir apparent in Jackson who has superstar potential. They'd probably want some more but I like the outline of the deal and think something beneficial to all three teams could happen there.

20 May 2017 18:53:41
I was thinking the Blazers could trade #15, Evan Turner, and a 2nd rd to Brooklyn for like #27.

20 May 2017 23:22:43
Why so many unbelievables? Does Chicago just need more or what?

21 May 2017 00:09:07
Nba Brooklyn doesn't want to give up picks but they did say they will take a contract for a pick.

21 May 2017 00:51:19
I rather have the 3rd pick (josh jackson) than cj mccollum. i'm not against cj's talent and fit in philly but the timeline is not aline. although he is only mid 20s, we all know that cleaveland and lebron is at his peak. We can see that on celtics vs cavs series. When lbj's game deteriorate, cj also is unrestricted free agent on that time. So i'd rather pay jj reddict a 16-18m range for 3-4yrs then try to sign klay. curry, durant and green will be on max on that time and sixers are relevant and in an upward trijectory going to championship in that process.

21 May 2017 04:08:58
jun_iet23 That's a legitimate argument but you have to factor in the importance for a culture change in Philly. They need to ditch that "trust the process" motto and start winning games. McCollum would help do this and help get those young guys valuable playoff experience and also improve their perception around the league which helps with FA. You also need to factor in that 76ers have plenty of young talent in the pipeline with Lakers pick next year and Kings pick in 2019 and that will provide cheap assistance down the line.

As you state McCollum isn't that old and I doubt he'd walk from 76ers after 3-4 years after he'd likely be a major contributor for them in his ideal role from a bball perspective and they'd probably be pretty good with Embiid and Simmons as well as their draft picks if they keep Lakers and Kings picks. At this time 76ers could also go after a Klay or Green (Durant and Curry are both about to be locked up for 5 years) instead of McCollum if they think they are better fits.

20 May 2017 15:52:55
3 Team Deal:

Sixers Trade: Pick 3, Okafor, Pick 39, 50, 2018 LA unprotected 1st round pick

Sixers Get: Pick 1

Celtics Trade: Pick 1, Jaylen Brown, Avery Bradley

Celtics Get: Jimmy Butler, Pick 39(sixers)

Bulls Trade: Jimmy Butler

Bulls Get: Pick 3, Jaylen Brown, Avery Bradley, LA 2018 pick, Pick 50 (sixers)

-Bulls re-bulid, that simple, it needs to happen
- Celtics really don't need a young Fultz, they'd be better off with an established star in Butler. Sign Hayward in FA
-Sixers give up some future, but they need to start making moves, and Fultz is their guy, Sign Lowry

Celtics Starters:
SG: Jimmy Butler
SF: Hayward
PF: Horford
C: Olynyk

Sixers Starters:
PG: Fultz
SG: Lowry
SF: Simmons
PF: Saric
C: Embiid

20 May 2017 16:13:37
Take out lowry and replace him with reddick and its solid. Just because lowry is from philly doesn't make him a fit. with the addition of fultz and simmons already in place there's no need for lowry and the massive contract he'll demand.

20 May 2017 16:29:54
I think that's too high of a price to move from 3 to 1 in a draft that is talented, but a definite drop off after pick 3. More then a few experts feel J. Jackson may be the best talent in this draft. No eat do I include the lakers unprotwcted next year. Maybe switch it with sixers pick next year (or lesser of the two) . That laker pick could be top 3 again.

20 May 2017 06:09:24
Sooooooo, i have a theory!

Markelle fultz the consensus #1 pick in this years draft is projected to go to the celtics. Danny ainge himself has said he doesn't see a 19 year old coming and and leading a team to a championship and if they take fultz i have every reason to believe they'll trade him for an established star. Now any team trading with the celtics say the bulls or pacers would be trading for the most assets they can get to jumpstart they're rebuild. So instead of trading for that pick and say abery bradley or marcus smart/ terry rozier? Why not trade for multiple pick which i don't think the celtics would be willing to give unless they traded that number one pick for additional picks to a team with an abundance of picks liks say ehhhh the SIXERS!!! There isn't a team in the nba who that markelle would fit i'm with like the sixers. With them tanking for so long and have already believe to have their franchise cornerstones in embiid and simmons i don't think trading say this years 3rd pick the lakers 2018 pick and a protected top 5 2019 pick along with jahlil okafor would hurt their future and i don't see the celtics saying no. They can aquire the star they desire like a jimmy butler without giving up some of their core players and still have a strong possibility of adding a guy like gordon hayward though free agency. I really only see them having to give up a few picks and say jaylen brown and marcus smart for jimmy butler, add hayward in free agency and those picks/players they gave up mean nothing.

Again just a theory but i would love to see fultz on the sixers. As for the celtics i don't believe they'll be the same team next year and i don't think fultz is going to be apart of that franchise, i think its a smart move to move that pick for more picks and flip those exact picks and jaylen brown/marcus smart or terry rozier for butler. You get your young center in okafor through that philly trade. Aquire jimmy buckets, sign hayward and i think they could actually challenge the cavs.

Share your thoughts.

20 May 2017 10:34:45
Celtics very well may trade Fultz, whether or not they include 76ers in the deal depends heavily on the team involved and their preferences/ existing roster. I think its definitely a possibility especially with a lot of teams high on Jackson who likely will be there at #3. Lakers pick is a bit of a gamble with the George rumors tho and 76ers project to be much improved by 2019 so its questionable how much value there really is there.

Celtics as is don't have the cap space to sign a guy like Hayward

celtics blog

and will likely need to move a guy like Bradley to do so as well as make a few smaller moves. For this reason its highly unlikely Celtics add both Hayward and Butler (its likely an either or) especially when what they really need is an upgrade at center/ pf position with a better rebounder. I think ideal situation for Celtics would be to keep Fultz, move Bradley for a big man (has to be relatively low salary which makes it tough) to clear cap space to sign Hayward and some smaller moves to bolster their bench.

Trading for Butler however since he'd make only 17.5 mill compared to Hayward who would start at 30.6 mill would give Celtics more cap flexibility where they could add a better more established big man. I think investigating what Horford's value is wouldn't be a bad idea either (I think they should keep IT longterm) since although skilled on both ends he is on wrong side of 30, due a lot of money, a poor rebounder for his position and not the biggest body down low (Lebron is basically his size and much more athletic which is why he is killing them) .

20 May 2017 12:50:58
I see what you're saying but of the moves you suggested gets them past the cavs. Mark my words danny ainge is a greedy guy. The celtics are going to add hayward and butler. As far as the center upgrade. The can aquire robin lopez in that jimmy butler trade. Even if the can't keep guys like Bradley or crowder they're going to do what they need to do to get past the cavs. Keeping fultz does not do that.

20 May 2017 16:16:23
DA is not a greedy guy, he's a smart guy. Just because Brooklyn got the short end of the deal doesn't mean Danny was greedy, it meant that King and Prokhorov were the not so smart guys. This is a business and at the time the nets thought they had won the lottery, but in reality Boston won the lottery.

A trade of Horford would be a dumb idea, he's not the problem. That would only hinder the process in which they are on. Although it may seem like Hayward has the lead up to this point of becoming a Celtic I wouldn't look at it that way.

In what Jaws said, I mentioned that last week or the week before that trading for Butler made the most sense because of his 17.5 salary for 2 years gives them the flexibility to add another player of size that will shut down the lane. And R Lopez could be somewhat of that presence if they wanted to go that way. But Lopez is not a dominant rebounder, nor is he one for steals.

Trading picks with Orlando makes some sense as they could get the #6 pick in return and also get Vucevic, as it was known midway through the season he could be had. Use that #6pick, 18 Boston 1st pick along with Crowder to acquire Butler.

TRADE IT while his value is high. IT for Bledsoe would be my choice.

Bledsoe/ Rozier
Bledsoe/ Rozier/ Smart?

Bulls celtics and sixers.

Sixers trade okafor, three pick, and Covington
Sixers get first pick

Celtics trade Avery Bradley and number one pick
Celtics get jimmy butler.

Bulls trade jimmy butler
Bulls get three pick, okafor, Covington and Avery Bradley.

Bulls completely rebuild

Sixers get fultz who they probably need to complete their rebuilding efforts.

Celtics finally get a star player so they have a realistic chance to go to the finals. Right now there the celtics have zero chance to beat cavs or golden state. They need to make a move if not this one.

19 May 2017 21:25:16
I would definitely prefer just getting #1 and Bradley over Okafor, Covington and #3 if I were the Bulls. 76ers would need to add their or Lakers 2018 pick for me to justify involving them in trade (can keep covington and Okafor in that scenario) . Celtics being how they are will probably draft Fultz and try and sign Hayward before trying to make a move for Butler.

19 May 2017 10:43:17
lakers offseason

trade 1:

Timofey Mozgov Jordan Clarkson hou pick

brool lopez two 2nd round picks l.a. (chicago and denver)

DeMarcus Cousins Trevor Booker Alexis Ajinca

trade 2:
Joe Johnson Alec Burks

Luol Deng

draft: lonzo ball

Michael Carter-Williams 2x2 (player option)
Tyreke Evans 12x3

pg: Lonzo Ball (D'Angelo Russell Michael Carter-Williams)
sg: D'Angelo Russell (Tyreke Evans Alec Burks David Nwaba)
sf: Brandon Ingram (Joe Johnson Tyreke Evans Corey Brewer)
pf: Julius Randle (Trevor Booker Larry Nance Jr)
c: DeMarcus Cousins (Ivica Zubac Alexis Ajinca)

lakers have also 9/10 milions to use to acquire expiring contract and pick (like calderon) and 50m for the 2018 (pg and resign cousins)

19 May 2017 11:34:53
Why in the world would Pelicans trade Cousins for a worse and older center in Lopez who will be a FA just like Cousins after next season? The fact Lakers are getting Cousins for Houston Pick, Clarkson and Mozgov is comical.

Second trade is almost as terrible. Nobody will give up assets for Deng.

19 May 2017 14:51:49
Hilarious, You use NBrooklyn and Utah to dump two terrible contracts. But in the case of the Pelicans you grab an all star for a far less better Center and a couple second rounders. wow Man that is bad.

20 May 2017 22:39:49
Love Lakers fans. So unrealistic.

19 May 2017 08:36:32
Bulls-sixers trade

Bulls get jahlil okafor
Sixers get #16 pick 2017.

19 May 2017 11:49:09
I think its about right on Okafor's value. If Bulls are trying to keep Butler I think they could find a better use of this pick. Personally, I think they should trade Butler (obviously depending on the return) and if they do I think trading this pick for a high floor guy like Okafor who you know can give you post offense off the bench isn't a bad move. Although they could also take a chance on a guy like Jarret Allen who at least projects as a solid defender or Justin Patton as a guy who is very raw and could be good or a complete bust.

19 May 2017 07:22:21
Eric Bledose is a very solid pg signed reasonably for 2 more years that can play very good defense and be a second scoring option on a playoff team. Phx should shop him for younger talent after he is coming off a good, healthy season (he missed only one game before being benched at end of season to allow Suns to tank)

Which of these Eric Bledsoe trades do you think is most reasonable?

1. Bledsoe + #32 to Bulls for #16
Bledsoe would give Bulls a starting caliber pg on a reasonable contract to pair with Butler and create a defensive duo. Bulls could still sign someone like Galo to be a stretch 4. Phx add a younger piece with pick

2. Bledsoe + Warren for Dallas #9
Dallas makes a move that puts them in playoff contention with strong starting pg as well as a young wing in Warren who can score off the bench. Phx get another lotto pick. Can get Tatum and Smith/ Ntilikina to add to young core

3. Bledsoe + #32 to Denver for #13 pick
A lot of potential moves Nuggets could make for Bledsoe but he'd give them a true starting caliber pg that would be deadly combo with Jokic that could push them into playoffs. Phx get another lotto pick to add young talent that will help in the future.

4. Bledsoe to Detroit for #12, Jackson
Jackson looked bad returning from injury and is due a lot of money. They upgrade at pg while saving money with Bledsoe. Phx takes Jacksons bad deal and gets a lotto pick too. Phx would probably try to make a move for Stanley Johnson too who seems under-utilized.

5. Bledose to Indy for #18 pick
indy already has Teague but he would cost double Bledsoe's salary to resign. The money saved could be used to bring in more help via FA and help Pacers build a more formidable team to make a last stand to keep George.

19 May 2017 10:07:21
I think the Denver deal is the best here and could potentially get them into the playoffs while giving the suns a decent pick in return.

19 May 2017 14:39:08
OK. how about :
Bledsoe, #32 pick this year. and Miami's 2018 1st. to Orlando for #6 and some filler.

19 May 2017 19:48:23
I like the Denver move. It works for both sides, and the value both get are great. I don't know if 16 or 18 are good enough picks for me to move Bledsoe straight up. he's not perfect, but I'm not sure if you're getting someone better than him there, even in this draft.

If I'm Dallas, I have to start thinking about getting some youth in there. Dirk only has a year or two left, and while I'm all about giving him a last hurrah, you also have to think about the future when you can. They need to bring in a kid to build their next generation. The Detroit trade is interesting, as they have plenty of cap space to bring Jackson in to just sit the bench if they wanted.

#12 is a very enticing return for that, but I don't do it just because of how bad he seems to be for the culture of his teams. I don't want a guy like that infecting my young kids.

18 May 2017 03:50:44
3 team trade between Phili-Chicago-Boston

Phili trade: Okafor, 3rd pick
Phili get: 1st pick, smart/rozier

Phili get the 1st pick so that they can draft one of the 2 elite point guards in the draft. whilst also getting a solid backup guard in Rozier or Smart. Loosing Okafor wouldn't be the biggest loss because Holmes has shown to be a good backup player.

Chi trade: Butler
Chi get: 3rd pick, Okafor

Chicago embrace a rebuild and trade butler to get a young player with promise in Okafor and the 3rd pick (likely to be Josh Jackson). the young core of Jackson, Okafor, Portis, Valentine and Payne shows a bit of promise

Bos trade: 1st pick, smart/rozier/(brown?)
Bos get: Butler

Boston use 2 of there assets and finally trade for an Allstar. Undecided how much extra they would have to give up to get the pick but this is exactly what they need.

This trade works perfect for every teams needs

18 May 2017 04:33:09
Chicago would get more for Butler and Philly has no place in this deal unless they're willing to give up ton for the pick. The first overall and smart or Rozeir is far more valuable than Okafor and the 3rd. In today's NBA Okafor is a bad fit for most offenses and his defense terrible.

17 May 2017 23:20:30
bulls receive: tyler johnson, josh richardson, 2017 pick 14
heat receives: jimmy butler

18 May 2017 00:34:41
Not enough for Jimmy.

18 May 2017 01:53:51
Only Whiteside could make it happen.

18 May 2017 03:33:49
Don't think it would be enough if they threw in Winslow as well. Miami doesn't really have the pieces to get Butler. They should try and get Melo as he will be extremely cheap asset wise to get.

17 May 2017 04:33:28
Suns trade: tyler Ulis Alan Williams

Bulls trade: mirotic jerian grant

17 May 2017 05:40:12
You are either a Bulls fan or someone who knows nothing about the NBA.

16 May 2017 14:29:24
Hypothetical trade if Minnesota moves up to 2 and Lakers stay at 3.

LA gets no 2 pick
Chicago gets no 3 pick and D'Angelo Russell
Minnesota gets Jimmy Butler.

16 May 2017 14:36:07
Minnesota would have to give up more and Russel is a pretty steep price just to move up one spot.

16 May 2017 16:16:04
Minny shouldn't rush, draft Ball with the second pick and trade Dunn for a future 1rnd pick.

16 May 2017 20:28:59
If they get a top 3, Ball would be a pretty good fit, but I'd keep Dunn and move Rubio. Dunn could still wind up being a solid defensive guard like Bradley or Smart in Boston. He might not ever get the offensive versatility Bradley has, but Smart has shown you don't need it to make a big contribution. If that was where they wound up, Rubio to the Knicks in a Melo package could work.

Ball/ Jones
LaVine/ Dunn
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Melo/ Dieng/ Hill
Towns/ Aldrich

I'd try to make some other moves involving Hill/ Aldrich and Muhammad for better depth at the 3, but this starting 5 with that guard rotation is a fun one.

Why would Minnesota want any part of Melo?

Wade opts in he was looking at Denver b4 bulls trade him plus nikola mirotic bulls 19 1st and couple 2nds and jerian grant for Gary Harris n Wilson Chandler gallo sign trade.

Why wouldn't he just opt out and sign with the Nuggets?

Um he's not getting 23m from the nuggets.

Nugs have the money to sign him, and they give up way too much in this deal to make this worthwhile.

If they wouldn't give him 23 million in free agency, why would they give up half their team for him?
