Knicks Get: Wesley Matthews, Cole Aldrich, Devin Harris, 2019 Warriors 2nd (via Mavericks), 2021 Cavs 1st, 2023 Heat 2nd (via Mavericks)

Mavericks Get: Kevin Love

Cavaliers Get: Carmelo Anthony, 2018 Timberwolves 2nd

Timberwolves Get: Iman Shumpert

20 Jul 2017 12:00:57
Again and again, Cavs not going to deal Love for Melo.

20 Jul 2017 13:12:34
I don't know about that anymore USA. If LBJ really is unhappy about the team's current direction, and Gilbert wants to keep him in town long term, they may be willing to do something as drastic as move Love with Melo being the key piece coming back. I'm not saying they should, just that backs against the wall, it could happen.

20 Jul 2017 13:52:11
And mavs don't get love for that crap package.

20 Jul 2017 17:47:19
Triangle O, if Lebron wanted Melo for Love to happen, I think it would have been done a long time ago.

In this trade the Cavs give up the most valuable piece in Love and then add a 1st round pick to it (depending on the Lebron it could be a fairly valuable pick) . There is no way the Cavs give up all that even if there was competition for Melo, but with him only willing to go to Houston or Cleveland, why would the Cavs throw all that out for Melo. The Rockets are most likely offering a bad contract, either Ariza or expiring contracts, and what will be a late first or 2. Even if he would be willing to go to Portland, a bad contract would have to be involved.

If I'm the Cavs I'm offering Shumpert, Frye, Jefferson, Felder, Tavares, and the 21 first lottery protected. If that doesn't work o well.

16 Jul 2017 11:44:02
Great deal for the Knicks, but not sure why Mavs or Cavs would do it. Cleveland would take a huge step back and could be a lottery team in a year when James leaves town.

16 Jul 2017 18:25:43
Hey Super, if LBJ leaves town in a year, Melo goes with him and they are a lottery team. See, Melo's in demand, which is more than you'll be able to say about "Brinks truck" IT next offseason.

Not sure the Mavs make this move.

-Re-sign Nerlens Noel 4yr 64m
-Sign Jonathon Simmons 2yr full MLE
-Sign Terrence Jones 1yr minimum

PG: Smith, Ferrell, Barea
SG: Matthews, Curry, Harris
SF: Barnes, Simmons, Brussino
PF: Nowitzki, Powell, Jones
C: Noel, Mejri, Plumlee.

13 Jul 2017 21:54:25
Atlanta is trying to rebuild. I don't see them being willing to give up picks or prospects.

11 Jul 2017 16:45:57

Trade Thad Young to Suns for Chris/Ulis.
At deadline trade Bogdanovic to contender for 1st rounder and a expiring contract (maybe Raptors).
In the draft trade Pacers 2018 first and Leaf or Sabonis to move up.
At end of season or draft day trade Collison for 2nd rounder.
Flip the first rounder from the contender and Oladipo for a future second rounder (maybe Mavericks will take on his contract).
Trade Joesph and 2nd rounder to Nuggets for 2018 first.

All of this opens up cap space for free agency
Dante Exum 4y72m (Jazz won't match because hood and favors are free agents as well and to pay them all would send them way over the cap.)
Gary Harris 4y88m (Denver can create space to keep him so you have to sign him to a little more. But it's not a smart move for a team who needs to pay an elite point guard.)
Resign Robinson III
Sign Amir Johnson 2y24m (2nd year team option). Just to get some veteran leadership.
Sign Nick Young 2y14m (Need backup SF and an elite 3 point shooter.)
Sign Deron Williams 2y10m (2nd year team option.) More veteran mentoring.

Robinson III/Young/Niang
Johnson/Chris/Sabonis or Leaf


11 Jul 2017 17:25:54
Not sure what Suns would want with Young especially giving up promising young assets (especially Chriss who was there lotto pick that they traded up to get last year) to get him and his decently sized contract when they likely are a team building for the future.

I think Indy would be foolish to just dump Oladipo's contract especially when they aren't going to attract any significant FA. Why give up assets to get rid of him in order to overpay similar caliber FA (Exum and Harris neither project as potential stars but solid players) and older FA (Johnson, Young and Williams) . His contract is big and he didn't wow last season but he is still relatively young and will likely be Pacers 2nd best player.

I think Exum would be a much higher priority than Favors for the Jazz and with guys like Joe Johnson and Diaw coming off the books they may even be able to retain Favors depending on how he plays upcoming season.

Nuggets do need a point guard upgrade (I don't believe Joseph is much of an upgrade with Murray capable of running the show) and they will have a decision to make between Harris and Barton on who they want to pay so Harris could potentially be had but I'd say its more likely they let Barton go with the jump Harris made last season.

After all those moves the end result is fairly underwhelming and all the moves are slanted in the Pacers favor (some are possible but I doubt all happen) . Pacers should try and move Collison, Young and Bogdanovic if they can get any young assets/ draft picks for them. They should only trade Oladipo if they actually get assets in return (don't salary dump him) . Moving up in the draft would be a solid idea especially with Sabonis and Leaf kind of redundant and Pacers needing a star to pair with Turner (Porter or Doncic would be ideal case) . Then throwing money at younger FA (most likely restricted) isn't an awful option but it most likely won't yield much if anything. Don't think Pacers need to sign that high of caliber of veterans at this stage of their rebuild where they should be focused on getting their young guys minutes and trying to uncover hidden gems with guys who have spent a decent portion of their time in D-league, overseas and such. It'll be a long rebuild for them but priority should be to tank with the hopes of getting a top talent to pair with Turner who is a budding star.

11 Jul 2017 17:44:55
Agree with most of what Jaw said. I think the oddest thing you have here is flipping Olidipo and a 1st for a 2nd. Olidipo is a young solid two way starter. He's on a reasonable contract. He's a player with solid value.

11 Jul 2017 05:49:55
Atlanta Hawks Moves

-Trade Miles Plumlee, 2018 Rockets 1st, 2019 2nd, and draft rights to Marcus Eriksson to Dallas for Josh McRoberts
(Saves 6.5m)

-Sign Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 4yr 79m
-Sign Tarik Black 1yr 3.5m
-Sign Tyler Ennis 1yr 3m
-Sign Jeff Withey 1yr minimum
-Alpha Kaba 2-way contract

PG: Schroeder, Delaney, Ennis
SG: KCP, Bellinelli, Dorsey
SF: Prince, Bazemore, Bembry
PF: Collins, Black, McRoberts
C: Muscala, Stone, Withey

Schroeder, KCP, and Prince look nice for the future and this team should be bad enough to land a top 5 pick and pick a big man.

11 Jul 2017 07:22:38
Plus they also have Minnesota's 2018 1st but it's lottery protected but Minnesota should make the playoffs.

10 Jul 2017 22:40:54
Don't see Cuban helping out another Texas team, but want to know what you all think

Mavs get O'quinn and Anderson, future first from Houston
- mavs get upgrade at front court

Rockets land Melo
- they finally get Melo

Knicks gets Powell, McRoberts, Harris, Long, Quarterman
- Knicks take back 1 contract that will tie up cap otherwise they get NG and exp deals to rebuild (that Dolan with ultimately screw up)

11 Jul 2017 08:03:01
Doubt Cuban wants to spend that much money on a team that probably wouldn't even make the playoffs. It'll be expensive to add Anderson when they still are going to have to pony up a sizable contract to Noel.

Additionally I believe Rockets need to give up more than Anderson who makes around 19 mill to take Melo's 26 mill (I think he has a 15% trade kicker too which would bump his salary up to like 30 mill) work. Ariza or Gordon would likely have to be included which is why I don't think Rockets should trade for Melo and should instead try to hold out and try to force Knicks to buy him out.

12 Jul 2017 04:00:47
Knicks are not buying Melo out. If they don't get what they want, they will play him another year and try to trade him next offseason. Next year they will have another lottery pick and Melo might be disgusted enough to waive no-trade to more teams. They are in a no-lose situation. What would buying him out accomplish? Still on books for this year.

09 Jul 2017 23:55:21
Mavs rebuilded nicely!

And it looks like DSJ is a steal.

I would proceed like that and take KCP! I like We, maybe he can join a contender, KCP is the younger Version but maybe a better scorer and athlet.

- Trade Wes for a 1st pick 2018.
- Sign KCP 3y 100m.

Noel, Mejri, Powell
Dirk, McRoberts, Motley
Barnes, FS, Brussio
KCP, Curry, Harris
DSJ, Ferrell, Barea

10 Jul 2017 00:12:52
He's a free agent. They can get him for the low low price of a near max contract.

10 Jul 2017 00:58:42
Wait for DSJ 2nd major knee tear.

10 Jul 2017 01:41:14
Not sure which team with the cap space to absorb Matthews contract would want him and would be willing to give up a 1st for him (team is probably bad and could use the first more than an expiring veteran) . Even more so they'd probably be better off trying to sign the younger KCP themselves and hanging on to their first.

10 Jul 2017 03:16:25
3 years 100mill. Lmfao good luck.

10 Jul 2017 20:59:45
I mean it is a 4y 100m and DSJ will be never injuried anymore. Wait and look. ; )

05 Jul 2017 14:22:53
Grizz need depth at the 4 and haven't re-signed Green yet... Maybe a reunion with Gay could be great for all parties? Gay could get more than OKC offered, he could return to Memphis where he started and was loved, and he could be on a good team that needs his offense.

OKC could be a great suitor for Celtics players needing to be moved to make room for Hayward. OKC gets Smart, Boston gets 2nd rounder.

OKC could then look to round out the roster by finding suitors for Kanter and Singler in exchange for role players. I see Kanter fitting in Dallas spelling Dirk and playing next to Noel. I also see Kanter fitting in Charlotte next to Howard.

OKC gets Smart
Boston gets 2nd rounder (+room to sign Hayward)


OKC gets Wesley Matthews, Dwight Powell
Mavs get Enes Kanter, Kyle Singler
***OKC gets a guy who could fit well with Russ, George in Matthews and a reserve big. Mavs get a guy who fits with Noel and can spell Dirk. Singler could use a change of scenery but showed promise in Detroit.


OKC gets Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cody Zeller
CHA gets Enes Kanter, Singler
***Thunder get more defense on the wings to try and matchup better with GS, plus get a good 2-way big on a better contract. Hornets have several solid bigs, but they all have similar skill-sets. Kanter offers something different. He fits well with Howard and would also fit well with Lamb. Singler could be depth or be flipped.


05 Jul 2017 14:37:47
Smart may have not developed into the impact player that the Celtics hoped he would be, but he's the 6th man on a 53-win team and he starts when Thomas is injured. To think that Boston would take a late second-rounder for him is beyond laughable.

05 Jul 2017 15:03:27
By saying smart for a 2nd, your saying that no one would give the celtics more then that, which isn't true.

05 Jul 2017 15:27:47
Supercollider and SimmonsOrBust:

I'm assuming you completely missed the of OKC grabbing George for Oladipo and Sabonis and no picks.

And you obviously missed numerous reports saying Gordon Hayward was signing with Boston. despite them not yet having sufficient room yet.

Point being: OKC is savvy in trades. AND OKC is one of the few teams with an exception equivalent to relieving the cap room necessary to bringing in Hayward. Boston still has Rozier to play behind IT. This deal makes sense.

05 Jul 2017 16:07:37
Church -- Just because Boston has an adequate backup for Thomas doesn't mean the Celtics are going to basically give away Smart. I would move Smart for Sabonis, though.

05 Jul 2017 16:10:17
Meant to add if OKC still had Sabonis. Stored too soon.

05 Jul 2017 17:23:09
Not add sure why Boston would trade Smart, the 6th overall pick 2 years ago, for a second round pick. That's equivalent to nothing. Sorry, won't happen, whether they need the cap room or not. If you think OKC is savvy in trades. let me introduce you to Trader Danny. Lol.

05 Jul 2017 17:35:05
No none of that was missed church.

Neither was okc giving away harden.

05 Jul 2017 18:33:44
Here's the problem church: if Boston wanted to get under the cap without any return, they can waive Mickey and Jackson. They don't need to move one of their main rotation players if they don't get a decent return.

05 Jul 2017 18:02:21
Sick of hearing about losing Harden.

We offered him the deal he wanted. He didn't accept because of his role. We in turn hit the phones. Called GSW first. They wouldn't give up Thompson. We called Wiz second. They wouldn't give up Beal. We called Houston third. We landed Martin (stop gap), Lamb (bust), and the pick that turned into Steven Adams. None are equivalent to Harden. Sure. But all that crap about not paying Harden is incorrect.

05 Jul 2017 20:56:11
Bmiller66, they have to waive Mickey and Jackson, because thst does not get them the cap space to sign Hayward. They do néed to trade one of Crowder, Smart or Rozier. It's being reported that they are shopping Smart. Trader Danny won't take a bad deal.

06 Jul 2017 02:21:57
smart is good (maybe also find 3rd team in smart deal to take abrines) but i think okc should keep kanter.

27 Jun 2017 04:23:00
Texas Swap?

Spurs: Aldrige and Green

Dallas: Wes,Curry and Powell

Spurs: get a rid of Aldrige's contract they get a defender still plus a very efficient scorer while (Curry) Wes contract will expire at the end of the season.

27 Jun 2017 15:36:20
You are ddrainer.

28 Jun 2017 05:10:15
whos getting benched? noel, dirk, or aldridge. if you bench dirk that's disrespectful. if you bench noel then you hurt his developement. and benching aldridge will cause all kinds of problems.

28 Jun 2017 05:10:51
assuming the mavs resign noel which they clearly want to do.

27 Jun 2017 04:03:19
Raptors and Mavs

Raptors: Valanciunas

Mavs: Curry, Powell and Harris

Raptors get a scoring threat like curry and a good contract for powell cause lowry isn't producing much its not wise for them to sign him max might get Serge Ibaka or Kanter better than lowry

27 Jun 2017 04:40:54
Doesn't really make sense for either team. Mavs are about to pay Noel big bucks to be their center of the future. For Raptors its not good value and they don't get a starting caliber player in return. I'm not sure what you mean about Lowry not producing, dude is still producing fine. I could see concern about giving him a 4yr max contract since he is already 31 but dude is still one of top pgs in the league. I think Raptors best bet would be to resign him since they don't have cap space to really get a viable replacement and their future isn't all that bright either (Anunoby was a great steal tho in draft) .

25 Jun 2017 22:42:07

Henson for Powell and Harris (cut)

Henson is an upgrade for backup C for Noel

Powell can stretch more and cheaper backup

26 Jun 2017 01:11:41
Agreed! OR Henson for B. Knight (Phoenix) Salaries match.

The Suns need a rim protector, The Bucks need a PG/ SG combo

guard! Knight played his best ball in Milwaukee. But,

Henson for Powell could work out for both teams!

22 Jun 2017 18:50:29
Mavs - Timberwolves

Mavs get #7 pick

Timberwolves get Wesley Mathews and Dwight Powell

- mavs dump salary and get another lottery pick that could be used to pair Jonathon Isaac with Dennis Smith Jr

- timberwolves get the defensive minded veteran who can shoot from the perimeter (Mathews) and they also get a young, athletic playmaker in Powell.

This trade would set up the mavs for the future and give the timberwolves a playoff push this upcoming season

22 Jun 2017 23:44:15
god no. just no. Matthews is clearly the better of the two, and he is statistically below average. You don't shoot under 40% and get valued at the 7. Just no.

22 Jun 2017 16:19:55
Trade proposal:
Mavs, Wolves and Knicks
Mavs trade: Wes, Harris,Seth, Mejri, 9th pick
Wolves trade: Rubio, Payne and 7th pick
Knicks: Trade Porzingas

Mavs get: Rubio and Porzingas
Wolves get: Wes, Harris, Mejri
Knicks get: Seth, Payne, 7th pick and 9th pick

Wolves get the defense they want and a veteran to train their youngsters
Knicks get picks for a rebuild
Mavs get their win now future

22 Jun 2017 16:29:57
This is so bad for Minnesota and New York it's not even funny.

22 Jun 2017 23:36:09
Is this a joke Mavs fan? So the mavs give away 4 relatively inefficient and worthless pieces. they receive a solid starting pg and a top 5 young player?

Oh wait, they give up the 9th pick.

Literally no one except the Mavs benefit at all from this.

22 Jun 2017 07:35:20
Dallas Mavericks get Paul George, Ed Davis, 15th pick

Indiana Pacers get Seth Curry, Maurice Harkless, Meyers Leonard, 9th pick, 20th pick

Portland Trail Blazers get Wesley Matthews

Minnesota Timberwolves get Dwight Powell, Devin Harris, 15th pick

Dallas Mavericks get Ricky Rubio

22 Jun 2017 08:09:06
You must be a mavs. nevermind.

22 Jun 2017 08:52:29
that's funny right there.

21 Jun 2017 20:12:12
Pelicans offseason

Trade #1

Pels - Wesley Mathews

Mavs - Quincy Pondexter, Omer Asik, pick #40 and future 2nd rounder

The Mavs then stretch Asik and save a bunch of money vs. Matthews, gain a ton of cap room to be aggressive with too

Trade #2

Pels - Ricky Rubio

Wolves - Tim Frazier, Alexei Ajainca, future protected 1st

Clear salary dump for Min while Pels play with pass first PG who will probably cost half of holiday contract

With remains cap sign

CJ Miles 3 yr 20 mil
Patty Mills 2 yr 12 mil
James Micheal Mcadoo 3 yr contract


PG - Rubio-Mills
SG - Mathews-Moore
SF- Hill-Miles
PF - Davis-McAdoo
C - Cousins-Diallo.

21 Jun 2017 23:44:02
Why does Minnesota need to clear salary? Besides, that is a terrible return for Rubio.

20 Jun 2017 15:52:01
Min - Russell, Matthews
Dallas - Rubio, #7
Lakers - #9, Tyus Jones

20 Jun 2017 16:23:26
I think Minnesota only does this if Isaac is gone at #7. I he's there, they'll take him as a good fit alongside Wiggins and KAT.

20 Jun 2017 19:43:59
Completely agree.

18 Jun 2017 14:38:48

Thunder get Wesley Matthews, Dwight Powell, Devin Harris, and #9 pick

Mavs get Victor Oladipo, Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and #21 pick.
