Pacers trade Paul George and 18th pick
Pacers get Kristaps Porzingis

Knicks trade Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah
Knicks get Kevin Love, 18th pick, and future first round pick (Cavs)

Cavs trade Kevin Love and future first round pick
Cavs get Paul George, Joakim Noah.

22 Jun 2017 06:04:56
Cavs can't absorb addition of Noah's contract.

22 Jun 2017 00:10:05

Hornets receive: Kevin Love, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye

Cavs receive: Nicholas Batum, Cody Zeller, Marvin Williams

hornets get another scorer to help out kemba and a good backup 2 guard. kemba will give you about 23 ppg and 6 assists and if love is involved in an offense more hell give you 23 ppg and 10-12 rebounds. love also fits perfectly with dwight howard they cancel out each others biggest flaws. cavs get the 2 versatile players in nicholas batum and marvin williams who can both guard at least 2 postions and stretch the floor. They also get the backup center they've needed to take pressure off tristian thompson and he makes up a little of love's rebounding.

21 Jun 2017 15:05:03
Paul Milsap sign and trade
Hawks trade
Paul Milsap, Future protected CLE pick

Jazz trade
Derrick Favors, Dante Exum, Alec Burks
both late 2017 picks.

21 Jun 2017 17:07:00
Sign and trades never get you that kind of return.

21 Jun 2017 20:56:46
agreed Alexstorm1. regardless of sign-n-trade dynamic, Milsap is very good but not worth that suggested haul.

21 Jun 2017 15:00:26
Cleveland gets E. Turner, George, and Vonleh

Indy gets Crabbe, Felder, R.Jefferson, and Portlands 3 1sts

Portland gets Love, Shumpert, A. Jefferson, and a Cavs 2nd

21 Jun 2017 20:59:57
Turner, Vonleh, Crabbe and 3 1st round picks for Love and scraps. my mind is blown.

21 Jun 2017 21:35:43
great trade👍🏾.

21 Jun 2017 23:06:34
Why is that mind blowing Gobbly? It takes 20 and 26 to unload Crabbe and Turner. SO they're trading Vonleh and 15 for love? That feels like a good move for Portland.

21 Jun 2017 23:30:47
Gobblyguber, they're trying to use those picks to move Turner and Crabbe. It's basically the 15 and Vonleh for Love. It gives them the opportunity to save money and add a star they control for 3 years. Shumpert is a solid bench player that gives them a little of what Turner and Crabbe gives them with better defense for half the price of either.

21 Jun 2017 07:49:24
Clippers are looking to deal Jordan. Not sure what Clippers are looking for in return (I guess depends on how their offseason goes) but don't see them getting anything too great since most good teams don't have a need for a center, he'll be 29 in a month and he only has 1 year guaranteed left (player option for 18-19 which he'll probably opt out of to get one last big contract) .

Bucks get: Deandre Jordan
Clippers get: #17, Vaughn, Henson, Teletovic

Could swap Henson and Teletovic for Monroe if he opts in. This return would be decent if Clippers were aiming to rebuild.

Celtics get: DeAndre Jordan
Clippers get: Horford, Clippers 2019 1st, Boston 2018 1st

Boston needs a rebounder at center position and still keep cap space for Hayward and other moves. Clippers get draft picks including their own back and a versatile big that is signed a year longer than Jordan.

Bulls get: DeAndre Jordan
Clippers get: Lopez, Valentine and #16 pick

Bulls get an all-nba player to add to Butler and still have cap space to make a splash in FA. Could alternatively incorporate Wade if he opts in. Clippers get a solid pick and hometown solid starting big in Lopez and young prospect in Valentine.

Cavs get: Jordan
Clippers get: Thompson and Frye

Not sure if really makes Cavs better but Jordan is bigger force on interior and Clippers get a younger big that is signed 3 more years.

Wizards: Jordan
Clippers: Gortat and Bogdanovic (S&T)

Gortat is reportedly unhappy with Wizards so they upgrade on him while Clipper get two solid players in return.

Spurs and his hometown Rockets would also be good destinations but couldn't think of a trade that would really make sense for both sides (some of these are a stretch as is) .

21 Jun 2017 11:10:57
I think the clippers want pg. In that way they might keep cp3 and blake. Give the assets to indy.
If pg leaves in 2018 they still have cp3 and blake.
Think a firstrounder in the range 12-16 is enough because lakers can't offer much.

21 Jun 2017 13:52:19
I guess dealing Jordan would be a way for Clippers to get assets to get in the George sweepstakes. I'm just not sure Paul and Griffin would base their decision to return for multiple years or not on a guy who may only be a 1year rental. If anything its the other way around, if they are able to sign Paul and Griffin they could help Clippers to resign George if they traded Jordan for him in a 3 team trade.

21 Jun 2017 02:57:22
Cavs get Jordan
Clippers get #4 pick
Suns get love.

21 Jun 2017 06:00:10
I don't think Suns would be interested in Love due to their timeline and that they drafted two pfs in the lottery last year and uncovered a solid player in Alan Williams.

21 Jun 2017 08:15:52
Suns want their pick at #4. Not trading it for Love.

21 Jun 2017 02:20:21

Cleveland wants Butler and the Suns have been rumored as a good 3rd team fit, so how about this:

Cavs get: Jimmy Butler
Cavs trade: Kevin Love, 2018 1st

Upgrade from Love to Butler, adds perimteter defense and Butler is on contract for two years (as opposed to PG13 for 1 year)

Suns get: Kevin Love
Suns trade: Brandon Knight, TJ Warren, 2018 1st (MIA)

They get some veteran leadership to help Chriss, Bender, Len, and Tatum (whom they draft since they traded Warren) while dumping Knights contract and retaining Bledsoe

Bulls get: Brandon Knight, TJ Warren, 2018 1st (MIA), 2018 1st (CLE)
Bulls trade: Jimmy Butler

This is what I'm unsure of. They get two 1st's next year plus two players under 26 that can help right away. They can draft a center at 16 and have a young core of Knight, Valentine, Warren, Portis, and 16th pick. It's not amazing, but all players that could be good starters. Plus having 3 1st's next year to add to it. But is it enough to justify giving up Butler?

21 Jun 2017 02:31:09
Cavs can't trade the 18. Their first tradable pick is 2031.

21 Jun 2017 02:34:56
Can't trade consecutive 1sts. They have already traded this year and 2019 away. Cavs can't trade a 1st until 2021.

21 Jun 2017 02:44:04
Not enough for Butler, don't think that is even enough for Love although I'm not sure Suns are right team for Love. I'd choose a young team closer to contention such as Nuggets or maybe even the Jazz who have 2 1sts and some young talent Exum and Lyles.

21 Jun 2017 03:11:36
No from Bulls.

If I'm losing a star #4 must be on the deal

TJ Warren is all right but it's a role player at his best
I'm not paying Knight salary. he is not a starter

Bulls want #4 and Chriss or Bender

If PHX gets Love there's not space for both at PF anyway.

21 Jun 2017 06:11:30
That's not enough for two years of butler! That trade would only happen if Brooklyns front office was making the decisions.

21 Jun 2017 08:21:27
Hope Phx doesn't trade for Love. They should keep the pick, they're a young team not too far away from doing something soon!

20 Jun 2017 22:07:28
4 way trade Suns Cavs Bulls Pacers

Cavs receive

Suns receive

Pacers receive
2017 #4 pick from Suns
2021 1st round pick from Cleveland

Bulls Receive
Al Jefferson
2018 first round pick (miami) from suns
2018 2nd round pick (Toronto) from Suns
2019 2nd round pick (LA of Minn, Least fav) from Cleveland
2020 2nd round pick (Portland) from Cleveland

21 Jun 2017 00:39:02
PHX Mgt hears this. laughs a lot. recovers in time to hang up. No way Suns do a deal like this. period.

21 Jun 2017 01:54:50
Irving must be in trade. Love value is declining fast.

21 Jun 2017 02:34:23
Phxfan, it's been reported that they've thought about moving the 4 for Love. It gives them a cheap star that they control for 3 years.

21 Jun 2017 08:27:30
Cheap is right, Love isn't what he used to be! Everyone talks about Bledsoe being injury prone, why not bring up the fact that Love is injury prone, Suns dnt need that and I hope they're not wanting to trade for him!

20 Jun 2017 19:47:31

Denver gives faried, hernangomez, Beasley, and either mudiay or this year's lottery pick
Denver gets klove

Cleveland gives love and gets PG

Indiana gives PG
Indiana gets faried, hernangomez, Beasley, and mudiay or 1st rounder

21 Jun 2017 18:46:30
Denver shouldn't have to give up that much to get love. they want this trade, maybe Fareid, First and Muiday? Nothing more.

20 Jun 2017 15:16:38
Thoughts on this POR-CLE exchange that was mentioned by Colin Cowherd the other day....

POR- Love, Shumpert
CLE- McCollum, Noah Vonleh,pick

Obviously, Cleveland isn't going to compete with GS with its current roster, so why not try this. This could benefit both teams: pairing Nurkic and Love with Lillard and having an elite 2 guard to go against GS.

20 Jun 2017 16:14:13
This trade would be good for Portland, they can get below the cap quicker. But think there are better options to do that.

For Cleveland, they don't need McCollum, nor Vonleh. They'll need picks if they decide to go in a different direction. No GM 2 days before the Draft, CRAZY!

Cleveland will pretty much have to take a different road. If Gilbert is smart he'll trade James to Lakers or Clippers. James might be the best now but he's about to screw the Cavs again. Wouldn't shock me if he tried to worm his way to GS. lol.

20 Jun 2017 17:16:19
That would literally never happen, ever.

20 Jun 2017 17:38:07
I don't think either team is interested in that trade.

20 Jun 2017 11:10:22
Now that Griffins gone I feel like Gilberts going to blow it up for whatever reason.
Gilberts Dream Scenario

4 team trade Cavs Bulls Pacers 76ers

Cavs Receive

Bulls receive
2 second rounders (NYK, ATL) this year from the 76ers

2019 second round (SAC) pick from 76ers

76ers receive

20 Jun 2017 14:53:48
Rumors have Chauncy Billups as the possible GM. He has mentioned prior, that he thinks Melo would fit nicely on this team. If Billups is hired, look for a Melo deal not too far behind.

20 Jun 2017 16:20:09
Cleveland is about to become a dysfunctional team. Gilbert got his championship title, Blow it up now Dan. First move, trade the dude that has lied to you a few times and is about to do it again.

21 Jun 2017 23:24:29
Sixers are getting hosed in this one. Okafor, Bayless, 2 1's and 3 2's? That's way too much for Irving. We'll just play with what we have, thanks.

20 Jun 2017 07:52:40

Indiana gets Oladipo to come back home, a first Rd pick, a solid PF who starts immediately and could be there for 10 years, while eating Kanter's contract.

20 Jun 2017 07:42:00

Cavs Get: Paul George, Al Jefferson

Pacers Get: Kenneth Faried, Iman Shumpert, Malik Beasley, 13th pick, 2021 Cavs 1st

Nuggets Get: Kevin Love

20 Jun 2017 02:54:08
Nuggets should be giving up more, Cavs already taking a risk with the move they don't need Jefferson who is a dinosaur.

19 Jun 2017 17:02:11
Detroit -Al Jefferson / Iman Shumpert / Monta Ellis / 1 pick round 2018 cavs / 1 pick round 2019 cavs

Cavs - Paul George / 1 round pick Detroit 2018

Pacers - Kevin Love / Tobias Harris / Stanley Jhonshon

19 Jun 2017 17:22:20
Can't trade back to back firsts.

19 Jun 2017 17:24:46
Cavs 18 is gone and you can't trade back to back picks. The 1st pick they have is that is tradable is 2021.

19 Jun 2017 17:37:43
17 and 19 are gone*.

19 Jun 2017 19:33:41
Detroit gets robbed here. They get a bunch of bad draft picks and bad contracts and lose two of their better players and a pick.

19 Jun 2017 21:52:14
What is Detroit doing in this trade? Their 2018 pick is more valuable than anything they are getting back (Cavs can't trade a first until like 2021) and on top of that they are giving up two solid young player. Jefferson, Shumpert and Ellis all aren't helping Pistons do anything except take up their salary space for a year or two.

19 Jun 2017 15:08:00
The Pacers get the 13th pick, Abrines, Sabonis, Felder, Osman, Kanter, OKC 2022 1st, the Cavs 2021, and swap rights in 2020 and 2022 with the Cavs.

Gives Jefferson and George

The Cavs get George, Chandler, and Jefferson

Gives Felder, Osman, Love, Shumpert, Frye, swap rights 20 22 and their 21

OKC gets Gallonari and Frye

Gives Kanter, Sabonis, Abrines, and a 2021 1st

Denver gets Love and Shumpert

Gives Chandler, Gallonari, and the 13th overall

19 Jun 2017 17:05:27
Cavs already traded away 2021 1st Rd pick and swap rights with the Cavs are less than worthless.

19 Jun 2017 17:28:09
The Cavs don't have a pick in 17 and 2019 they have their 2021 pick. The swap rights could be worth something since they'll be 3 and 5 years from now.

19 Jun 2017 14:20:08
IND- D'Angalo Russell, Julius Randle, JR Smith
LAL- Kevin Love
CLE- Paul George

Lakers add Love to pair with George for 2018. Russell leaving opens the door for Ball to start. The Cavs already stated they are ok with George for 1 year. The Pacers get back a good young PG and a starting PF and SG for 1 year of George. This move makes sense for all teams.

19 Jun 2017 16:21:39
The lakers greatest fear in getting George should be him landing in Cleveland. I just don't see him walking away from a team with Lebron after they go to the finals. Assisting Cleveland in landing George would be incredibly foolish for the lakers.

19 Jun 2017 17:05:18
No way Lakers facilitate a trade that sends P George to another team.

19 Jun 2017 12:56:55

IND get: JR Smith, Courtney Lee, Channing Frye, 2017 1st DP NYK, 2019 1st DP CLE, and 2021 1st DP CLE
Draft: Dennis Smith Jr (8) and TJ Leaf (18)

Pg. Smith Jr
Sg. Lee
Sf. Smith
Pf. Leaf
C. Turner

CLE get: Carmelo Anthony, Paul George (s&t), Joakim Noah, and Kyle OQuinn

Pg. Irving
Sg. George
Sf. Anthony
Pf. Lebron
C. Love

NYK get: Tristan Thompson, Monta Ellis, Al Jefferson, Iman Shumpert, and CJ Miles

Pg. Ellis
Sg. Miles
Sf. Porzingis
Pf. Thompson
C. Hernangomez

19 Jun 2017 16:01:33
You are legit the worst Knicks fan imaginable.

20 Jun 2017 02:09:17
I thought Porzingis 9'3" sg.

19 Jun 2017 07:36:05
Cavs Pacers Nets

Cavs Receive

Pacers receive
2021 first round pick Cavs
2019 & 2020 second round draft picks from Cavs
(Possibly Felder as well if desired)

Nets receive
(Rights to Cedi Osman)

Cavs receive George without giving up the big three and form their 4. No other reason needed lol

Pacers get a good return as far as talent and draft picks. Shumpert is a young guard for them and Lopez is a All star type center but only has a year left as well and the team can decide what to do from there. Plus they get rid of their older talent (Jefferson, Ellis) and receive a balanced return of talent some youth and draft picks.

Nets gid rid of Lopez and get Thompsons youth and JR is a local hero of marketing standpoint is a good fit. Plus JR can add some much needed scoring and could be a go to guy in BKN next year. Also those two are locked up so they can't leave the Nets lol Something for the return of Lopez most likely leaving.

19 Jun 2017 08:47:02
Other teams can offer multiple picks now. Why would the Pacers want future picks that they won't see in 2-4 years? If Cleveland is going to get PG, a third team is going to have to give some 2017 picks to Indiana.

19 Jun 2017 09:01:21
If the Celtics won't him, Cavs have no chance to get him. Celtics can offer a much better package. But they will only to this if PG sign an extension.

19 Jun 2017 14:36:00
Why would Nets do this? I can't stop laughing that you think JR is a local hero! Don't Nets fans read the papers and remember JR's stint with the Knicks?

19 Jun 2017 06:50:19

PACERS get Rubio, Dieng, Pekovic, 1st round pick from Cleveland 2017

CAVS get Paul George


The Pacers get a relatively young point guard and a young big to go with a late 1 round pick. I'd throw in 2 if I need to if I'm Cleveland. I think Paul George will make a huge difference compared to Kevin Love. Kevin Love gets to pull a LeBron and go back to where he began his career, only this time with a much better supporting cast. He immediately plugs into the PF spot to form a big 3 with Wiggins and Towns.

19 Jun 2017 07:03:25
Actually very sensible but Timberwolves would at least have to give the Pacers their first pick this year.

19 Jun 2017 07:13:32
I think it makes more sense than George and Love straight swap. However, Cavs already dealt their 2017 1st to Portland. I think Pacers and Cavs could find a 3rd team willing to give up more attractive pieces for Love tho like the Nuggets for example. Not sure how willing Twolves would be to give up more when they should be able to get a solid pf prospect in Issac or Markkanen via the draft.

19 Jun 2017 10:10:01
Really? Love back to Min.

19 Jun 2017 21:23:54
Love would be a good fit in that Minny team, only not sure they want him back.

As a pacersfan you make me cry, we should get this years lottery pick and a future pick.

19 Jun 2017 23:20:52
Agreed. Paul George is worth more but I think they have very little leverage at this point. Any team has to be worried he will bolt for LAL and LAL knows they can have him for free in free agency. So why would anyone give up much for him? That's why I settled on that package.
