The Cavs Knight, Houston's 19 1st, and Houston's 21 1st lottery Protected

The Rockets get KCP, Hood, Nwaba and Beasley

The Suns get Burks, Wagner, and a Lakers 2nd

The Lakers get Ariza

13 Dec 2018 15:18:34
The Cavs get Batum, Thomas, Bridges, the Cavs get a pick swap with the Knicks, and a Knicks 2nd

The Knicks get Jr (buyout), Burks(exp), Hood(exp), and Nwaba

The Hornets get THJ, Lee, and a Knicks 2nd

13 Dec 2018 17:48:40
Hornets will figure a way to re-sign walker next season without losing bridges just yet I think. I like Batum as a player more than either THJ or Lee too. 10mil for Bridges is a bargain, that's the salary difference in 20-21 between Hardaway and Batum. I think bridges is closer to 18-20 in rookie value currently, probably a little more.

13 Dec 2018 14:27:43
The Cavs get Batum, Biyombo, MKG, Bridges, Monk, and the Hornets 18 1st

The Hornets get Love, Thompson, Clarkson, and Burks.

13 Dec 2018 15:00:47
If I'm Charlotte, I don't do this. Adding Love won't make them a contender in the East. And if Walker leaves after the year, they will need Monk and Bridges for the future.

13 Dec 2018 17:37:45
Yeah, I’m not sure if they’re going to all in in one direction or not, but if they don’t, they’re in trouble. They either need to trade Walker or give him something
To compete with. Just hoping he stays in his late 20 and hope to compete sometime he in his 30s is a horrible plan. Especially for what they’re going to be paying for that roster next

13 Dec 2018 18:15:50
If Walker is happy never winning a title and being a Hornet for life, it doesn't bother me any. Admirable quality that's rare these days. Not to mention a relationship with ownership strong enough to do so.

Forgot to add on reasoning:
*Warriors might do this if they feel Green is not a part of their future (I personally don’t think so) . Sure he brings the firepower and defense, but he’s also a turnover machine and limited on offense and creates controversy. Swapping him with Randle, who is younger and slightly resembles Draymond, and add Bradley who could be a great two way player off the bench.

*Pelicans might do this because a Green-Davis combo is very lethal, and adding Hood at the 3 adds firepower to their offense. Losing Randle hurts, but I think Green is a better partner for AD. They also rid of Hill’s contract and the first they lose doesn’t look to be very valuable (probably would put top 20 protection on it) .
*Cavs might do this mainly for the picks. Taking on extra salary next season will hurt, but they basically swap two guys they were probably not going to resign into a first. They are in rebuild mode, and it makes sense to trade players who will not be apart of their future, knowing they could get a first for them.

*Clippers might do this simply for the cap space. They are a likely destination for the NBA’s top FA’s since they’re in LA and not the team led by Bron. It would make sense for Gallo to be traded, but Bradley’s contract more versatile since it is cheaper and not a risk as much since Gallo has had injuries. But off topic, a three-team Trade with Gallo heading to Philly (taking back Chandler of course and Fultz heads to whoever wants him) to me would be the most realistic trade to get Gallo off the books since Philly needs a stretch 4.

12 Dec 2018 17:07:01

12 Dec 2018 17:45:09
A little bit of an overpay from the 76ers but I like the idea.

12 Dec 2018 18:23:17
Looks one sided in the Cavs favor! Rockets get one decent player out of two, Sixers get an injured player, 2 backup backups, and a decent player? I believe Houston and Philly BOTH would pass!

12 Dec 2018 19:23:17
Torque Houston and philly are in their windows. I think Cavs should do this and the other teo take their shots.

12 Dec 2018 20:15:05
@Shiller41, Of course the Cavs should take it! They're giving up garbage, and getting 5 players plus 4 picks in return? Then again, I see your point, according to their record, they DO need all the help they can get. Maybe T Lue should also come back as a player? From where the Cavs are at. The old Cliché is true. "if your not the lead dog is the race, the view never changes! "

12 Dec 2018 21:53:52
As HOU, I would be against paying a 1st for smith, muscala. Knight is due back in a week. I'd rather have him healthy and a 1st than smith or muscala. There will be other deals. HOU's 1st isn't bad right now.

13 Dec 2018 01:29:03
Btec- is Knight a wing defender?

Houston has pg on lock they need help. They ard too talented to be in lottery and capped out. That is the definition of basketball hell.

13 Dec 2018 03:28:39
Shiller41, I'll take my chances with Knight defending the 2, keeping my current lottery pick, before paying a lottery pick for Muscala and Smith. Maybe closer to the deadline, see what the rockets record is at that point, still no way on the 1st. I'm stingy with picks for teams that are supposed to be good but aren't. Look at the Griz, 1 of 2 injured players return, and a good draft pick and their solidly in the playoff race.

13 Dec 2018 03:38:34
Btec- nobody on Houston's roster guards wings. Eith harden and cp3 almost untenable because of contracts only one rim protector, they got to make a move. Their core players can't be traded and they aren't rebuilding.

13 Dec 2018 04:00:46
A 1st that is in the lottery for J. R. Smith? The guy who lost game 2 for the cavs? I mean he isn't a defender? I don't follow? I thought you were a magic fan, not a cavs homer? Just Kidding, but serious what is smith and muscala going to do in terms of win shares for the rockets? Seems like extortion, and a fools ransom to me.

11 Dec 2018 21:23:12
December 15

Rockets Trade Eric Gordon Carmelo Anthony 2019 first round pick (Top 20 protected)

Cavs Trade Rodney Hood Jr Smith Ante Zizic

Carmelo Anthony still on rockets rosters

11 Dec 2018 21:37:17
Rockets fan.

11 Dec 2018 22:54:54
Helps Cavs save money and gets a draft pick.

12 Dec 2018 10:58:52
No I’m not a rockets fan.

11 Dec 2018 17:18:06
With LBJ comments about "it was here or the garden" did he say he would of signed with Boston if not Lakers. Would cavs did a sign and trade heyeward and sac pick for James or would Boston traded horford for a trade exception to sign james. Like horford to Lakers for a pick because the Lakers had the cap.

Lakers have the cap to sign Irving next year. That would be the best move to reunite with James and trade Ball Ingram and kuzma plus 3 first for Davis. Kuzma looking like a good second option or could get better and lead there team.
McGee or use mle on Jordan if he takes it. And sign other veterans to fill roster.

11 Dec 2018 17:40:29
The last thing Irving wants, is to play with Lebron again. He will resign with Boston.

11 Dec 2018 17:58:22
The Garden=Madison Square. The Knicks. Not the Celtics.

11 Dec 2018 19:20:37
Your right b mil I don't know y I thought Celtics. I was just waking up and write this in my sleep lol.

11 Dec 2018 23:21:04
No way he meant Madison Square Garden. Why would LeBron consider playing for the Knicks? They are a bad team, nowhere near contending for a championship. LeBron is all about winning now as his career winds down. Of course he meant the Celtics. Lol.

12 Dec 2018 00:34:06
Celtics fans lmao.

12 Dec 2018 01:00:05
Are the Lakers that close to contending? It’s no secret that Lebron has always loved NY and MSG. There’s no doubt it was MSG he was talking about. I’m surprised anyone could confuse what he said.

11 Dec 2018 15:55:48
The Cavs get Parsons, Fultz, Korkmaz, Brooks, the Memphis 2020 unprotected. The Philly 2020, a Philly 2nd and a Memphis 2nd

The 76ers get Love and Hood

The Grizzlies get Chandler, Clarkson, and Nwaba

11 Dec 2018 16:13:30
Which Brooks? I would be hesitant to offer two 2nds for Clarkson when parsons could be 12.5mil salary savings. Clarkson really sucks, Chandler would be useful as a bench player.

11 Dec 2018 16:59:12
Clarkson don't suck he needs better coached.

11 Dec 2018 17:03:00
I haven’t seen anything about a potential medical buy out for Parsons. Who reported it?

11 Dec 2018 17:08:06
Also, I’m not fan of Clarkson, but for a team that lacks scoring and seems to be very regimented, I think he could come in and carry your offense with the 2nd unit for 20 minutes a night. He’s a black hole, but his offense isn’t inefficient. When he’s hitting he can keep you in a game you have no business being in. - Cavs fan that’s seen his team in games that they have no business being in.

11 Dec 2018 20:48:39
MEM is seeing what Parsons wants to do. It would be an injury retirement. Just like Steve Nash. He can't play for weeks to Months after playing one game. MEM will still get relief cap though. Lots on this from the Nash situation. Parsons had been at it for 3 seasons and gotten nowhere. It will ultimately be up to Parsons but a lot of people think that Parsons is going to hang it up, soon.

12 Dec 2018 20:31:18
Clarkson is actually doing a good job as a sixth man
Also, Sicers reallyyy need a PF, whoever they get him from.

10 Dec 2018 23:14:04
Hornets - Love
Cavs - Biyombo, Bridges, Kaminsky, and 2nd



11 Dec 2018 01:35:49
Bridges will play more games in next 2 seasons than Love plays on his contract.

10 Dec 2018 20:03:07
Cavs: Love,

Grizzlies: Parsons, D.Brooks, '20 1st

I think Griz are getting an injury exception for Parsons? Not sure if it transfers? If it does, Cavs gain room to acquire more salary dumps, assets, etc before deadline, and next season too.

10 Dec 2018 23:55:26
Cavs need to add 2 1st not grizz.

11 Dec 2018 01:03:04
Apparently the Griz aren't getting injured player credit for Parsons because knee soreness doesn't qualify, at least so far it hasn't, but it that change supposedly. It is transferable and would allow a team to go approx. 12.5mil tax free over the luxury line. Could be a winfall for the Griz later.

10 Dec 2018 18:48:18
*Spurs get: Kevin Love, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson
PG Clarkson/White/Murray
SG Derozan/Bellinelli/Walker IV
SF Gay/Hood/Pondexter
PF Love/Cunningham/Moore

PG Sexton/Mill/Delly
SG Burks/Forbes/Smith
SF Osman/Nwaba/Jones
PF Nance/Henson/Frye

10 Dec 2018 22:19:04
I actually like this, a lot. Think Pop could make those 3 players even better and more efficient.

10 Dec 2018 16:05:55
The Cavs get Mahimi, Knight, Melo(waive) Howard(waive), Chriss, Washington's 19 1st lottery protected, Miami's 19 pick top 10 Protected, Houston's 18 1st, Houston's 20 1st lottery Protected and a Houston 2nd

The Heat get Love, Wall, and Burks

The Wizards get Dragic, Whiteside, Nwaba and Zizic

The Rockets get T. Johnson, Winslow, Hood, and J Green

The Cavs sell Love, role players and cap space for picks.

The Wizards save a ton of money next year, get rid of Wall's attitude, and keep a winning team around Beal and Porter.

The Heat get two stars to put around Richardson and give themselves a shot to
be really good if the team can mesh.

The Rockets get the role players they need without giving up any of their valuable players.

10 Dec 2018 16:54:46
I like it cavs prepare for lb junior and James will be there coach and then eventually owner.

10 Dec 2018 22:54:33
I've particularly been following blow-up posts With the possibility Pels may have to do exactly the same. So far the ones you've posted are pretty solid.

09 Dec 2018 22:09:57
My thoughts on what the Cavs should do moving forward:

Trade jr and hood for parsons and a protect 1st

Trade Burks and a second for fultz

Trade love for Ryan Anderson and josh Jackson

Trade Tristan for Valanciunas and a protected 1st

Parsons, Clarkson, Anderson, Henson, delly, and valanciunas all expire at the end of the 2019/2020 season. That's a total of 96.8 mil.

In the 2020/2021 season under contract you have:

And whatever draft picks

That's a cap hit of around 41.8 mil. So 2020 you have an amazing amount of cap space to over spend on role players along with a pretty good young core of top picks.

10 Dec 2018 00:18:19
You won't get a 1st for Thompson.

12 Dec 2018 13:02:19
If that’s the only problem outta that then I’ll take it.

09 Dec 2018 16:37:40
Cavs - Wizards

Deadline deal!

Cavs gets:
Rivers (expiring)
Morris (expiring)
2019 1st rd pick (lottery protected)
2023 2nd rd pick

Wizards gets:

Cavs gets future picks, two expiring contracts and a bad contract in exchange for their best player. More minutes for Nance and Zizic to develop.

Wizards save 4 million this year and reduce their luxury tax bill even more. Love gives them a better shooter at the 4 and Henson play backup 5.

09 Dec 2018 17:00:12
If the Wizards were actually a solid playoff team like they should be, I would say this trade is good.

09 Dec 2018 17:12:43
It works this season, but next season the luxury, coupled with likely repeater tax (unless they shed some salary) makes this trade irresponsible. Grunfeld should be fired anyway but this would be the nail in the coffin. I haven't, but put this in trade machine and check out its projected win increase. Is almost 100 mil in taxes worth it? They are still a barely hanging on east playoff team getting bounced in the 1st round.

09 Dec 2018 17:29:02
Throw Oubre in and it makes sense.

09 Dec 2018 17:59:19
Trade Oubre and Satoransky to Kings for Labissiere to get under the luxury tax.

09 Dec 2018 19:06:20
Love is not bringing pl as yes and picks. Morris right now is cheaper and a better playerm.

09 Dec 2018 19:26:07
Unless the Wizards plan on playing in a hospital, Love and Henson are both hurt, and don't actually know which will be coming back first, Or when! I believe Washington would pass.

09 Dec 2018 21:50:00
It makes sense for half a season until love is 30, and wall is 40, Beal is 30, porter is 30. 4 guys, over the luxury line? 10-12 other roster players each @ $4 per dollar spent? for that group?

10 Dec 2018 01:41:05
Shiller you’re the most bias person on here. In no way has either Morris brother EVER been better than K Love. You’re opinion should be invalid from now on lol.

10 Dec 2018 03:05:49
Magsnusarn, the Kings laugh at your trade offer. Not saying Skal is all that, but Oubre and Satoransky are exactly a whole lot better. Plus, the Kings would have to waive a player in order to create the roster spot. There just isn't enough juice in this deal to make it worth the King's time. Now, if you want to toss in a protected first rounder, then we would have something to talk about.

09 Dec 2018 06:07:18

Hornets Trade Miles Bridges Marvin Williams 2019 first round pick (lottery protected)

Cavs receive Terrance Ross Timofey Mozgov Miles Bridges 2019 first round pick (lottery protected) Hornets

Hornets receive Kevin Love

Magic receive Marvin Williams Jordan Clarkson

Fair Trade & Salary Match

09 Dec 2018 04:59:45
Sub bridges for MKG and no pick.

09 Dec 2018 05:53:18
Magic wouldn’t want MKG tho Williams 10 time better than him remember MGK can’t shoot with ugly shot.

09 Dec 2018 18:52:39
Magic pass. Just what they need, another 4 and unreliable shooting wing. Why would they give up Ross for that? At least Mozgov doesn’t eat up rotation minutes.

09 Dec 2018 01:20:27

CLE get Jusuf Nurkic, Evan Turner, 1st round pick, 2nd round pick & Anfernee Simons

CLE get a young center in a good contract and some assets to continue the rebuild. They have plenty of options like they could send Nurkic to other teams for more picks. They only get 2 years of contract from Evan Turner who could they also use as an expiring next year.

Pg Sexton/Delly/Simons
Sg Clarkson/Nwaba
Sf Osman/Turner
Pf Thompson/Nance/Frye
Ce Nurkic/Henson/Zizic

POR get Kevin Love & Rodney Hood

POR really need to do something to make their team better. Love could be the 3rd star they need. They move Collins to the starting role and Hood brings them some significance at wing position

Pg Lillard/Curry
Sg McCollum/Stauskas
Sf Hood/Harkless/Layman
Pf Love/Aminu/Swanigan
Ce Collins/Leonard

I found some usual comment from Cavs and Blazers fan. What do you guys think about this?

09 Dec 2018 03:55:34
Stop it your embarrassing all cavs fan Turner alone move Love.

09 Dec 2018 04:47:02
Hate it for Portland. I think nurkic is slightly more valuable than Love right now. I don’t value Hood at all, so the extras are a bad overall deal for Portland too.

Side note: we get it shizzee, you hate Love. Please stop. You’ve gotten worse than supercollider with Melo.

09 Dec 2018 16:50:37
I seriously question whether some of you actually WATCH b-ball!? Players like Love and Hood are the exact types of players Blazers need. Needed them for awhile. Nurkic is solid but they got other guys that can do his job.

08 Dec 2018 19:36:20
The Cavs get Batum, Exum, Bridges, the Utah 19 1st top 10 Protected and the Charlotte 1st top 10 Protected

The Jazz get Love

The Hornets get Favors, Burks, and Hood

08 Dec 2018 20:07:44
Looks bad for the Jazz? Isn't Love still hurt?

08 Dec 2018 20:33:23
Love plays 50 to 60 games a year and is overpaid. He might get Cavs players but not picks.

08 Dec 2018 21:04:28
Love for a straight jacket 2 2nd.

08 Dec 2018 22:48:44
So you think it’s more plausible, if you take out the Jazz 1st?

08 Dec 2018 23:09:47
No one is going to give up players, PLUS 2 First Rd pick for Love! To Old, and apparently now, Damaged goods! Nice try rkeene_16. As a Cavs fan, I can see you trying to get the most, While dumping Love to anyone, and for anything! Aren't you happy to get Dellevedova back? And, In 2-3-4 Months Henson should be ready to play again. I would like to see K. Love finish what's left of his career in Cleveland!

08 Dec 2018 23:27:54
Now way Charlotte does this. Bridges is part of their future, which they need more than players to keep them as the 7th or 8th seed in the East this year.

09 Dec 2018 22:57:42
Burks can’t be trade with someone.

08 Dec 2018 03:08:29
The Cavs get Knight, Chriss, Melo(waive),Nene, Houston's 19 and 21 1sts and 2 2nds

The Rockets get Hood, Burks, Nwaba, and Nance

The Rockets get all of the role players they need to get back to last years team. The Cavs continue to rebuild.

08 Dec 2018 02:34:52
Cavs Rockets

Cavs receive
Houston 2021 first round pick Top 10 protected
Houston's 2023 second round draft pick

Rockets receive

Rockets are said to have interest in Smith, can't think of a deal besides Knight and a pick for smith or Knight and Chriss for Smith. Clears more cap space and to maximize in the clearing of cap. Cavs absorb Tuckers 3 year left on the contract for a pair of picks and also give Houston more scoring in Clarkson.

08 Dec 2018 05:20:04
Remove Tucker from that.
