If Portland could unload two bad contracts, pick up an above average SF, and only give up one first, I think they’d do cartwheels.

18 Apr 2018 16:28:20
Why would the Mavs have interest in Aldridge? They're in the middle of a rebuild and he's on the wrong side of 30. Not to mention that is probably and over pay for him.

That is also a terrible package for Kawhi. Gallo isn't an asset and probably has negative value given his contract. The only value that Jordan would have in this situation is the fact that he's an expiring and even as an expiring, he isn't that valuable since the Spurs are taking on an extra 10+ million dollars in this trade. So basically they get a late lottery pick and have to take on a bad contract for a top 5 player in the middle of his prime.

19 Apr 2018 00:11:45
Spurs would win roughly 6 games only due to pop and Gallinari would miss another 40 games even with the “rest players” the spurs do! They should probably sign d rose to a max then!

16 Apr 2018 17:23:57
The Heat get Love, Korver, and Powell plus save 8 million dollars

The Cavs get Whiteside, Winslow, Barnes, Mathews and Barea

The Mavs get Thompson, Jr Smith (buyout),
Clarkson, Zizic, T Johnson, the Brooklyn 8th overall, and 2 Heat 2nd round picks

16 Apr 2018 19:13:57
Rkenne all jokes aside you post like 50 trades a day, yet have no clue about the value of a player. You offer up the same Cavs scrubs in every trade, yet have them get the best players in every trade. The nets pick has no where near the value you think it has. Maybe at the beginning of the season, but not now. This draft is top 6 or 7 heavy.

16 Apr 2018 19:39:01
Who isn't getting what they want here?
The Heat don't want Whiteside and his value is plummeting. They get Love, who can be a legitimate 2nd scorer for them and they give off of Tyler Johnsons bad deal, They also clear up their log jam of young mediocre wings. Plus, they're saving money and getting closer to being under the Luxury tax.

The Cavs get their center, 3 wings who can defend, one of which could be a decent second option for the Cavs.

The Mavs trade in annover paid older shooter in Mathews for a younger one in Johnson, get the 8th pick for Barnes for Barnes, and get some small assets for taking on TT.

16 Apr 2018 20:02:43
Agree with Rkenne. A trade is good if all teams get something they want.

The Heat need to move whiteside, so they can develop Adebayo and they get a good player back. Love-Dragic would be good for a few years.

cleveland get contender ready players back

And the Mavs get the draft pick.

16 Apr 2018 20:22:25
Just because the heat don't want Whiteside doesn't me they're going to take Cleveland's garbage. Love has been on the trade block, and nobody would give up anything of value. You call Winslow a mediocre wing, yet act like osman, zizic, and Clarkson are potential all stars in every trade. Just like every trade you post the Cavs get the top players, and give up the least. Dallas could make this trade and leave Cleveland out of it.

16 Apr 2018 21:08:37
I don’t think any trades can be done until Lebron decides where he is going he changes everything.

16 Apr 2018 21:22:13
Jdp, what does Miami have that the Mavs want? They might want Bam, but Miami isn't giving him up. They may have some interest in Winslow or Richardson. They definitely have no interest in Whiteside or Johnson unless something is attached to him. The Cavs give up 2 of the 4 highest value assets in this trade in Love and the Brooklyn pick. They get back two of the 4 highest value assets in Barnes and Whiteside and out of those 4 Whiteside is clearly the least valuable. His play is slipping, he's disgruntled, Miami doesn't want to play him and he's making the most.

17 Apr 2018 14:28:19
Because rkenne_16 like to be famous neither his post is useless or nonsense it's ok to him.

16 Apr 2018 05:42:36
Dallas receive: Thompson, '19 & '20 2nds
Cavs receive/sign: Noel (2yr 14m 2nd year team option)

16 Apr 2018 17:04:08
That'd be great for the Cavs. I'm not sure I see it from Dallas's end though.

15 Apr 2018 17:53:30
The Pelicans get Mathews, Richardson, and Winslow

The Heat get Barnes, Thompson, Miller, a Heat 2nd and a Cavs 2nd plus save 12 million dollars

The Mavs get Jr smith (buyout), Mirotic, T Johnson, AjincA(expiring), Diallo(expiring ), Jackson, Zizic and the Pelicans 19 1st top 10 protected

The Cavs get Hill and Whiteside

15 Apr 2018 18:04:03
So the cavs give up Thompson, smith, zizic, and a future 2nd round pick for Hassan whiteside and Solomon hill? Sounds pretty lopsided to me.

15 Apr 2018 19:07:17
Who should the Cavs be giving more to?

15 Apr 2018 23:18:39
I think the heat and mavs are underpaid. If the mavs absorb Tyler Johnson's contract and the heat give up whiteside, Richardson, and Winslow then they are both getting the raw side of the deal.

16 Apr 2018 00:53:18
Her3s another daily lopsided Cleveland trade by rkenne.

16 Apr 2018 02:08:36
Rkenne lmao.

12 Apr 2018 19:45:37
The Cavs gets Whiteside, Richardson, Olynyk, Danny Green, and Dejounte Murray

The Spurs get Dragic, Barnes and Osman

The Heat get Gasol(buyout), Korver(buyout), JrSmith (Buyout), Clarkson, Nance, 18 Brooklyn 1st, and the Spurs 2020
plus 29 in savings this season and almost 60 the season after.

The Mavs get Thompson, Mills, Zizic, the Spurs 18 1st, the Cavs 2021and a 2nd from each team

The Spurs add two borderline allstars, get a legitimate starting pg, and end up with Osman, who can replace Green. They build a team that would be really dangerous, if they can bring back a healthy Kawhi and the only thing of value they give up is 2 late 1sts and Dejounte Murray.

The Cavs add a real center, another big that can shoot, 2 3 and D wings, plus a defensive minded center. The team will be extremely expensive and they give up most of the future, but putting a ton of shooters and a team that should be really good on defense around Lebron should give them a title chance.

The Heat are in a weird spot. The bulk of their team is young except Dragic who is their best player and their 2nd best player is disgruntled and may be replaced by a rookie in a few years, who he's already loosing time to. They have a ton of solid young wings that it will be hard to find time for all of, they're going to be in the luxury next year, they're a mediocre team with out a ton of upside and they're missing 2 of their next 4 1sts. This trade gives them the chance to sell high on Dragic, get rid of Whiteside before he becomes to much of a problem, open up significant cap space next summer, and add young talent/picks. They take a step back next year, but probably 2 steps forward the year after with back to back lottery picks and they ability to open up a max contract.

The Mavs add some young talent and picks for use of their cap space. I don't think Barnes is part of their long term future and his loss will just help them tank a little more next year.

12 Apr 2018 20:23:25
I don't like what the Spurs get in return. Osman doesn't have the visible upside Murray has, and Dragic, and Barnes are arguably just as overpaid as some claim Mills, and Gasol are. 2 1sts, and a 2nd too. It looks like a poor value return.

12 Apr 2018 20:48:25
You make a lot of valid points, but you're overvaluing Barnes. Maybe add a bit more to the Spurs and its a go. Your assessment of the Miami situation is spot-on though.

12 Apr 2018 21:30:46
Maybe take the Spurs 2nd and Zizic away from the Mavs, then give Zizic to the Heat and Nance to the Spurs?

12 Apr 2018 21:55:12
Jorga, I can see where you can argue Murray over Osman, but I see them as similiar caliber prospects and the Spurs actively tried to trade for Cedi over the Summer. I think since they add a starting pg here, lose their 3 and D guy and Anderson hitting free agency this year, Osman might be a more valuable prospect for them. Murray probably wouldn't see a ton of playing time at point over Dragic and Parker with his shooting struggles, I'm not sure how much he can move over to the 2. Osman can play either wing and the 4 in certain lineups. Plus, I think Pop could turn him into one of the better wing defenders in the league and make him a dangerous offensive player. His game and raw skill set just seem tailor made for Pop to mold.

You can argue that Barnes is overpaid, but he's already proven he can be a good 2 way 3rd option on an elite team. Plus, he's still young enough for Pop to coach up. He would be the 2nd option for them on offense right now with Kawhi out.

Dragic isn't overpaid. He's a borderline allstar year in and year out and can do everything you would hope your pg can plus he can play off the ball and he's a decent defender. He's only making 17 million this year. Compare that to the Spurs part time pg, Mills who's making 10 million on a 4 year deal and isn't a starting pg.

Gasol looks completely done and is slated to make 16 million next year. Green can still play, but there have been rumblings he's unhappy with his role and they should try to get something out of him before he walks and as long as you have that team with Leonard, those picks will be in the Late 20s.

13 Apr 2018 04:04:56
10pts, 8rbd, 3ast, 1blk is not bad in 23.5 minutes for Gasol. Would S. A. Rather have a younger guy? Undoubtedly, yes. He may retire in the off season. They are nearing their rebuild, and I would find a deal to add Cedi for his value as a 9-11 man off the bench, young, with future potential, and not trade my 21 year old starting PG in the process. Barnes is not a good start due to his salary, and position, (Gay, Leonard) and the same thing for Dragic, and his age, and salary. S. A. Is going to rebuild eventually, I don't think this deal is good for them. Not my intention to offend, but that appears to have already happened long ago.

11 Apr 2018 03:17:54
Griz - Mavs

Griz send: Pick 2, Parsons, Pick 32
Mavs send: Pick 4

11 Apr 2018 05:08:34
DAL wouldn't do that.

10 Apr 2018 18:43:15
The Cavs get Gasol, Conley, Barnes, Barea

The Grizzlies get Hill (buyout), Jr Smith(buyout), Thompson, the Brooklyn 1st, the Cavs 2023 1st, and a Cavs swap in 2022 and 24

The Mavs get Korver (buyout), Clarkson, Zizic, the Cavs 2021 1st and a Cavs 2nd

The Cavs go all in on winning another championship with Lebron. They give up every asset they have and commit to huge luxury taxes for the next 3 or 4 years plus they may end up up in a Brooklyn like situation at the end of it. If it comes together this team could be really good.

Pg Conley/Barea/ poss Calderon
Sg Lebron/ Hood
SF Barnes/Osman
Pf Love/ poss Green
C Gasol/ Nance

Try to sign Danny Green, Micheal Beasley, Wayne Ellington, Thaddeus Young, Wesley Mathews, Mile Teodosic , JJ Reddick, or Wilson Chandler if they hit the
Market and decide to go ring chasing
If not resign Calderon and Jeff Green

The Grizzlies start their rebuild with 2 top 8, a large amount a cap space in their 2nd year and give the age of the Cavs roster, they could end up with 3 lottery picks.

Barnes has been pretty good for the Mavs, but not the building block they were hoping for. He hasn't quite lived up to his contract and the team is further away than they thought when they signed him. This gives them some mediocre assets and they save some money.

11 Apr 2018 00:28:09
rkennen_16 i don't see mavs have get enough in this trade i don't see this trade happened only grizzlies get have enough trade because they have two top 10 lottery picks maybe top 2 and top 7 their can draft bagley doncic porter young o bamba good trade for grizzlies but mavs don't get enough in this trade.

09 Apr 2018 07:41:05

any thoughts if leonard leaves?

09 Apr 2018 11:26:19
If i got this right, Spurs would have 2 Aminus on their roster and Cabs would have 2 McCollums, because you've just send Aminu two times to Spurs and McCollum two times to Cavs.

09 Apr 2018 13:46:57
They’re obviously two variations of the same trade tonchcorkins. Perhaps look at the whole post before commenting.

09 Apr 2018 18:33:36
I am sorry for making this kind of mistake.

09 Apr 2018 20:36:21
Yeah, this thing is so muddled. In the first I don't see the Cavs giving up the Brooklyn pick and Love for McCollum.

I also don't think the Spurs get enough in either trade.

08 Apr 2018 23:34:35
Mavericks / Jazz Trade:

Mavericks Receive - 19th pick, Jae Crowder, future second round pick

The Mavericks clear out Harrison Barnes's expensive contract and gain another first round pick. They need to continue to gather young assets and clear out money for future free agents.

Depth Chart:
(Scenario includes their draft picks)

1- Dennis Smith Jr.
2- Yogi Ferrell
3- Jae Crowder/Luka Doncic?
4- Marvin Bagley/Jaren Jackson Jr./Dirk Nowitzki?
5- Maximilian Kleber/free agent signing

Bench = Wesley Matthews, Dirk Nowitzki, Doug Mcdermott+reserves, free agents, rookies

Jazz Receive - Harrison Barnes

The Jazz had a terrific 2017-2018 season as Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert shined alongside arguable the best supporting role player cast in the league (Rubio, Ingles, Crowder, Favors, etc). However, they need to take the next step. Harrison Barnes is an athletic scorer that can play solid defense and grab boards.

He is big and can play the 3 or the 4 and he can stretch the floor. Him and Donovan Mitch would be the primary ball handlers/scorers and Ricky Rubio would be able to dish passes to them and make plays. Gobert is an elite shot blocker and rebounder and they will still have favors as another offensive weapon / threat on the glass.

Depth Chart:

1- Ricky Rubio
2- Donovan Mitchell
3- Harrison Barnes
4- Derrick Favors
5- Rudy Gobert

Bench = Joe Ingles, Royce O'Neale, Alec Burks + reserves, free agents, rookies

09 Apr 2018 02:14:49
Im disturbed by how dallas get those picks jackson doncic and Bagley. Other that great move.

09 Apr 2018 02:32:21
Crowder, and his salary make him a valuable piece in Utah, and the ability to re-sign Favors this summer. Harrison Barnes should be averaging 25+ a game in DAL. He isn't that interesting, other than an expensive Ariza.

09 Apr 2018 03:23:31
Crowder is worth more than Barnes.

09 Apr 2018 05:09:37
I forgot Exum re-signing as well. Utah needs the cash Barnes would require.

07 Apr 2018 14:59:46
if leonard leaves

suns gets SF Kawhi Leonard, PG/ SG patty mills

spurs gets PF/ C Dragan Bender, PF Jared Dudley, SF/ PF Josh Jackson, 2018 first-round pick

mavs get jared dudley waive and #50
spurs get # 35

resign tony parker 2yr/ 16m
resign kyle anderson 4yr/ 25M
resign davis bertans 3yr/ 19m
sign tryeke evans 5yr/ 60m

draft Deandre Ayton

spurs depth
PG murray/ parker/ brown-#21
SG evans/ green/ ginobili/ white
SF jackson/ anderson/ gay
PF aldridge/ bertans
C ayton/ gasol/ lauvergne

this much scary team that warriors and rockets next 1-3 years

any thoughts?

09 Apr 2018 18:07:52
First, suns aren't giving up the #4 pick 2 years ago, the #4 pick this past year, potentially the #1 pick this year, for a player that you wrote left. so its a sign and trade? Stupid.

But even if he doesn't leave, there is little chance he stays in phoenix long term, so again, ridiculous.

But beyond all that nonsense. you annoint that spurs team as better than the warriors and rockets for the next 1-3 years? Seriously? I don't think that team makes the playoffs. But you have they instantly better than the Rockets and the warriors? let me guess. only one to agree with this post was you?

Also, stop starting every comment with bro, its weird, and sounds like a horrible attempt at jersey shore.

06 Apr 2018 15:44:27
here's what the raptors need to do in the off season

raptors trade JV and Norman Powell

to the Mavs for sec9nd round pick and contract match ups.

then. raptors move ibaka to center and draft a shooting guard with range and size. then depending on who they got in the trade keep or waive then sign vets to round out the roster. and the biggest question is Freddy if it's cheap keep him or let him go bring in brown as the 3rd guard. and use the 905 to develop others. or sign vets to a min.

starting line up



Wright or Freddy
draft pick or vet
draft pick or vet

06 Apr 2018 21:31:12
Why would the Mavs want JV?

09 Apr 2018 15:15:32
why wouldn't they he's improved each year. the only reason why I say let him go is that ibaka won't bring back anything in a trade IN has more upside and cheaper but ibaka isn't cheap and his play is slightly better right now.

06 Apr 2018 13:03:46
- Matthwes
- Noel

- JR Smith
- 8th pick (Nets)

Have a bit luck on the draft.
C (Ayton, Bamba, Jackson)
SG (Doncic, Bridges, Walker)

Sign Randle 4y 80m.
Sign I.Thomas and maybe KCP if available.

06 Apr 2018 13:47:03
Mavs are giving too much. Matthews is easily a top 10 player on the league and Noel is a franchise cornerstone on the rise. Cavs would need to send over Kevin Love and at least 3 more firsts for the mavs to even consider this trade.

06 Apr 2018 13:49:02
No way Cavs give up the Nets pick for Noel and Matthews, even if they get to move JR in that process. Noel is the biggest waste of talent in the L, and Hood is better than Matthews. Yes, Matthews is an expiring deal, whereas the Cavs would need to re-sign Hood for multiple seasons, but if LBJ stays, Hood is a better long term piece to have around him.

06 Apr 2018 16:29:04
Severe over-valuation of Mathews and Noel. Smith sucks but, a lottery pick? For a guy lime Noel who can be signed outright?

07 Apr 2018 00:53:27
That package alone is worth James + why you undervaluing them mavs players? Agree with hamburger any trade for Noel would also cost love.

06 Apr 2018 06:01:40
Knicks clear big contract by the end of next yr to have 90 mil in cap space. Bulls take on future salary to land a 2nd lotto pick. Hornets get out Batum Zeller contract for more productive Hardaway and 2nd rim protector behind Howard. Mavs cut payroll for equal talent.

Bulls get Batum Zellers 9th
Knicks get Mathews Holiday Lopez Asik 20th
Hornets get Hardaway Noah
Mavs get Lee




Thomas for Faried

06 Apr 2018 06:28:13
It's an interesting deal come the deadline next season. 4 teams swapping their overpaid guys. The Bulls are really taking it on the chin long term. MAVS might want a little incentive for the extra seasons Lee brings with him.

06 Apr 2018 16:18:01
this is the worst return for the Knicks. Lopez, Mathews and Asik have horrible contracts. Even though you cleared out Noah, you get 4 worthless players with bad contracts and you lose the 8th pick. And why would the Knicks trade lance Thomas for Kenneth Faried who is on a multi year deal paying him 13 mil annually. This trade is horrible.

06 Apr 2018 18:10:50

Lopez and Mathews are in their final year next. Asik final season is not guarenteed. So once again you exposed about not anything about GMing.

06 Apr 2018 18:52:55

you don't trade the 8th pick and Tim Hardaway jr. for no names just to clear out Noah. Lopez, asik, varied, etc all suck.

07 Apr 2018 01:01:36
Haha another great trade from you, nobody wants any of them players the pick is the only thing worth anything and your team is trading it away. Garbage just like everything else you post.

07 Apr 2018 22:28:23
Heat team fully healthy, you butt whole burns bc you lost to Knicks g league team, smh.

07 Apr 2018 22:29:35
Hardaway is garbage.

07 Apr 2018 22:30:01
Holiday over Hardaway.

05 Apr 2018 06:24:47
Spurs get Ingram Kuzma Kanter Lee
Lakers get Ntilikina Claw 38 44
Knicks get Ball Deng Gasol


Spurs have no need for Ball and dealing with father, but get great return g for someone who will leave to LA to improve his market value.

George/vet minFA/Diop-44th
Randle/vet minFA/Wagner-38th

Lakers loose 3 big pieces to get a superstar. But the superstar draws Paul George and Boogie to joins him than extend Randle and Thomas.


Knicks know how hard it is to add another star without loosing Porzingis or trading picks. Taking on 2 bad contracts might be the cost to land Ball while loosing Frank and Enes. Ny will have to continue make other moves to create cap space to add FA's in 2019. Ny circus will feed into the Balls family. Knicks will pick up LiAngelo undrafted to develop in G league.

Bulls get 9th Deng Noah
Knick get Holiday Lopez Mathews Asik
Mavs get Hardaway Bulls 2nd

05 Apr 2018 06:43:22
I cannot see Kanter, or Lee on the Spurs. Worst contract on the Spurs is Gasol, if that is even a bad contract. Trading a guy like Leonard doesn't return a defensively challenged Center, to Popovich, and a very expensive 32 year old.

05 Apr 2018 15:14:03
Jorga you are saying that 37 years old Gasol making 16 million a year isn't a bad contract?

05 Apr 2018 16:25:41
this might be the worst trade scenario ever.

05 Apr 2018 17:49:38
Tonchcorkins he could retire at any moment, he's a true 7ft'er, plays 20 mins puts up 10, 8 numbers. Yep I said it, and I'm proud.

03 Apr 2018 02:25:22
Sign and Trade:

Dallas receives: Thompson, 2x 2nd picks, Cash
Cavs receive: Noel (2yr 16m, 2nd year team option)

03 Apr 2018 07:41:44
2 2nds not hiding Thompsons salary. Maybe Nance or Hood included if Dallas was in to taking on salary, and was interested.

03 Apr 2018 10:33:29
jorgawood, Noel has been terrible the last couple of years. Thompson, even with his contract, is a better option than Nerlens.

The Cavs do this obviously to clear salary, and the Mavs do this as well.

03 Apr 2018 16:52:24
It's a massive salary shed for Cavs. Noel is a better defensive player in the past than Thompson, and would be useful in CLE at the right price. Which 8 is better than 17. Thompson rarely does much outstanding beside grabbing double digit rebounds.

29 Mar 2018 18:03:24
Mavs offseason

If the Mavs get the 5th pick: trade it along with seth curry and HB for charlotte's 1st round pick this yr and next yr's 1st round pick along with sending the mav's w. hernangomez. Then sign KCP to a 3yr free agent deal. Then with the pick the mav's get from the hornet's take the best player on the board. with the 2nd round pick get billy preston. trade wes m., let salah m. walk.

07 Mar 2018 17:09:57
If LBJ Stays

Cle: Barnes+Powell+2rnd pick Dallas

Dal:Smith+ T Thompson+ 1rnd pick Nets

07 Mar 2018 17:21:01
I said unbelievable because LBJ, is not returning to Cleveland next season. Too much bad blood and the only talent they have is old. He can't win there anymore. He's gone.

07 Mar 2018 18:30:55
What old talent? LeBron is probably their oldest rotation player right now.

08 Mar 2018 17:25:21
JR Smith, Love, Shumpert. The rest aren't good enough to win at the championship level.

09 Mar 2018 00:43:13
DAL takes this deal, CLE wouldn't. Barnes is a role player, not a centerpiece. He isn't above 20 ppg on a team he should easily be able to get 20 on. Eat a season or 2 of Thompson, and Smith, plus a lottery is a bargain to dump Barnes overpaid behind.

09 Mar 2018 11:01:49
Yumbo, Shumpert isn't on the roster and Love is 29 and was having his best year as a Cavs before IT came back.

07 Mar 2018 14:56:07
Portland: H Barnes

Dal: Turner+ Collins+ 1rnd pick Portland

Swap Collins with swanigan. Barnes is nice, but not worth a first and a promising recent lottery pick.

I think that's to little
and what about

Turner+collins+2rnd pick.

Bmiller, I think you have to factor in the cost of getting rid of Turner's bad deal. Swanigan and a 1st isn't enough to swap Barnes for Turner. I like this deal. Portland seems to be 1 big piece away from being a really good team.

That’s fair, but I wouldn’t give up the only decent young prospect on the roster for a nice upgrade. If it was someone like George or k Leonard, obviously yes. Barnes just isn’t enough of a difference maker.

Maybe the solution is swapping Turner with Harkless and Aminu/ Leonard. Two smaller contracts are easier to unload than one huge one.

I believe Barnes would fit great in that Portland team, he could be a borderline all star. So i would take the gamble, if i were Portland.

It still blows my mind that Portland of all places thought Turner would be the guy spend on. No matter what team you're looking at, he's not worth that kind of cash, but especially not Portland. It's like they looked at his stats, saw he was listed as a SF, and said, that's the guy.

Turner needs to be on a team where he can operate like a ball handling guard with shooters around him. He worked that role to perfection with the Celtics, because Stevens actually knows how to use his players. He's not your typical PG right now as he can't shoot the three, but surround him with shooters, and let him work the mid range game, and he will produce for you.

Barnes is no star. POR needs to dump their long term overvalued guys. Not add one, and lose their budding future. Barnes is solid, not worth his money. Especially in POR, where his money would requires serious output.
