Magic Trade Terrance Ross 2019 second round pick unprotected

Nuggets Trade Iaiash Thomas Michael Porter Jr(Injured) out for rest season

Magic can get a steal of Michael Porter Jr
Have a bounce back season

Second Trade

Magic Trade Johnathan Issac Johnathan Simmons to Wizards

Wizards Trade Kelly Oubre Jr Markieff Morris to Magic

06 Oct 2018 06:37:54
As a magic fan, I'd almost give away Ross for a bag of peanuts, but you're not getting pistachios.

06 Oct 2018 14:46:11
But I mean, it is an unprotected second!

06 Oct 2018 15:42:31
Football Father Terrance Ross is not good anyway just Trade him with unprotected second round pick for Thomas and Porter jr in heartbreak.

06 Oct 2018 17:14:44
Nuggets are already deep at the wing position, Ross wouldn’t see significant minutes, Thomas is more valuable to Denver than Ross, and Porter could be a stud.

In what world does Denver say yes to this deal?

06 Oct 2018 21:49:33
So Denver trades their recent first round pick for a second? That makes sense! (Wait, no, it doesn’t make any sense at all)

06 Oct 2018 22:18:51
I'm saying there's no way Ross and a second has anywhere near the value as porter much less him and Thomas. Would I want it? Yeah. But if we're considering hypotheticals might as well trade for more.

08 Oct 2018 12:58:24
As a magic fan I rather lose than cheer for IT.

28 Sep 2018 17:42:22

25 Sep 2018 12:43:32
Charlotte get Jimmy Butler

Denver get Nicolas batum

Minny get Gary Harris, Malik Monk and Hornets 2019 1st

Nuggets need size to defend all the west coast sf freaks and have Murray, Barton, Thomas and Beasley to compensate Harris loss

25 Sep 2018 13:48:14
Isn´t Harris better than Batum?

25 Sep 2018 16:54:16
Wow, that's horrible for Denver. Batum is a top 5 worst contract in the NBA.

25 Sep 2018 18:49:34
Yeah, I’m with you guys, would rather have Harris than Batum right now.

25 Sep 2018 20:00:13
if i'm giving up harris i need to be the team landing butler.

24 Sep 2018 15:36:54
Nuggets get - Beverley and Carroll
- Gets much needed perimeter D

Clippers get - Kurucs
- Gets a young forward prospect

Wolves get - Harris and RHJ (maybe a pick too)
- 2 young players that adds good defense and Harris adds shooting

Nets get - Jimmy Butler
- Gets their star to build around and hope to sign Kyrie Irving

Carroll/MPJ(Start when 100%)



Irving(if not Resign Dinwiddie)

24 Sep 2018 15:49:06
What are the nuggets trading?

24 Sep 2018 15:57:12
So Minnesota gets two soon to be free agents for Butler. How about no.

24 Sep 2018 17:06:55
What are the Nets giving up of value?

24 Sep 2018 19:29:15
Gary Harris? Thought it was tobias.

24 Sep 2018 20:30:49
Who is Kurucs?

24 Sep 2018 20:59:10
Dont clippers have lots of young forwards already?

24 Sep 2018 22:42:46
Care to add a name? There are three Harris. Tobias, Gary and Joe. Who?

23 Sep 2018 01:35:58
Washington gets: D.Carroll+Jared Dudley+Denver 1rd 2019

Brooklyn gets: Otto Porter Jr

22 Sep 2018 01:08:36

•Nets get Jimmy Butler, Troy Daniels, and Shaquille Harrison

•Twolves get Allen Crabbe, Caris LeVert, Denver’s 2019 1st (via Brooklyn), and a Suns’ 1st rd pick (protected for picks 1-12 in 2019, 1-7 in 2020, and 1-5 in 2021)

•Suns get D’Angelo Russell.

21 Sep 2018 09:12:30
Denver/ Minnesota

Gary Harris and Tyler Lydon for Jimmy Butler

No picks included, Minny gets two young players, who fit their timeline. Denver pushes hard this season and hope that Butler likes the idea and resigns.

21 Sep 2018 16:49:21
Not worth risking Harris.

15 Sep 2018 22:00:42
If Butler would resign

Nuggets get - Butler

Wolves get - Harris, Lyles, and 2019 1st

16 Sep 2018 00:11:16
Why again would the nuggets gut their team when they could just sign him?

16 Sep 2018 14:57:01
How are theey hitting there team. There trading Harris for Butler plus giving up a pick and a player. Yep players for a way better player is not gutting your team. If the Lakers trade for Davis that is gutting your team.

17 Sep 2018 13:32:56
Butler isn't way better than Harris with age and contract.

17 Sep 2018 16:09:39
Um, perhaps the point is that Butler is an expiring contract and Davis is locked in for multiple years?

They are getting Butler for a year, then he leaves, and to get that, they give up their future PF who is 22, their future SG who is 24, and this years 1st round pick.

Seriously, do you realize how basketball works?

12 Sep 2018 06:14:53
Nuggets Dream Big

Trade #1

Nuggets get:

Nuggets get best front-court in nba for years to come. give up young players but hops will attract FA's in the future.

Pelicans get:
Porter Jr.
20 1st
22 1st (if needed)

pelicans give up Davis for 2 young studs, a short term replacement and decent draft picks

Trade #2
Nuggets get:

For if Thomas doesn't work out

Clippers get:
19 2nd

continue the rebuild with two young players.

12 Sep 2018 13:03:12
Thomas doesn't fit their needs. They need a defensive pg that can shoot off the ball. Beverly would be perfect for them, sixers, suns or wolves.

12 Sep 2018 16:13:16
Second one should be Hernangomez instead of Lyles. Lyles is a bit valuable to Denver, and beverley is a one year rental.

03 Sep 2018 17:16:02
Brooklyn Nets moves

•Trade Deadline deal:
Trade Allen Crabbe, their own 2019 1st (top 3 protected), a 2019 2nd rd pick, and a future 2nd rd pick to Minnesota for Jimmy Butler

-Team finishes 11th in East
-Denver make the playoffs and their pick conveys to Brooklyn (at #17 overall)


17: Jarrett Culver (SG, Texas Tech)

-Renounce all free agents except Jimmy Butler and Spencer Dinwiddie ($1.6m cap hold)

-Waive Treveon Graham (non-guaranteed)

-Sign Kyrie Irving 4yr max
-Sign Marcus Morris 3yr 30m
-Sign Markieff Morris 3yr 25m
-Re-sign Jimmy Butler 4yr max
-Re-sign Spencer Dinwiddie 3yr 34m
-Re-sign Ed Davis 1yr room exception
-Re-sign Jared Dudley 1yr minimum
-Sign Kosta Koufos 1yr minimum

2019/ 20 Lineup:
Pg. Irving, Dinwiddie, Napier
Sg. Butler, Culver, Musa
Sf. Harris, LeVert, Kurucs
Pf. Morris, Morris, Dudley
C. Allen, Davis, Koufos.

03 Sep 2018 17:31:02
Minnesota is better off trying to win this year than taking that offer.

03 Sep 2018 18:21:19
This is based off an assumption that Minnesota is looking like they won’t be a playoff team at the deadline and that Butler will walk at the end of the season.

04 Sep 2018 12:57:51
Wolves are a playoff team as long butler and coach is their. Wiggens and town will never be part playoff team as the main players bc they don't play defense. It would be unprotected 1st.

02 Sep 2018 05:27:07
What's if Magic Drafted Dennis Smith Jr instead of Johnathan Issac
In 2017 re NBA draft
Magic Trade Elfrid Payton DJ Augustin 2017 second round pick 2018 second round pick to Nuggets for Donovan Mitchell Before Utah Jazz

Starting line up

02 Sep 2018 13:43:00
Still an awful team. But great. Let’s do hindsight drafting for all teams.

02 Sep 2018 14:42:11
If you like sports doing a draft hind sight for every team would be fun. Just see how many teams messed up. Recently I think the Cavs, well since drafting triston Thompson they did horrible drafting all the way to Sexton. Wiggins don't count though cause he never played for Cavs.

02 Sep 2018 18:51:22
Bennett count? They wanted a number 1.

18 Aug 2018 23:22:59

Raptors get Lyles/ Beasley (or other salary filler) from Nuggets

Magic get Powell/ future protected 1st from Raptors

Nuggets get Simmons

Raptors save some money, get young Big to replace Poetl

Magic get a future 1st for taking on Powell's contract, possible good young defensive wing if he finds his game again

Nuggets get good 2 way wing player, fills a need from a position of strength, too many good bigs.

19 Aug 2018 06:44:46
the Magic can’t be trading Simmons, especially not for another wing who’s greatest asset is potential except he’s 6 years older.

19 Aug 2018 15:31:29
You realize Simmons is 28 right? Powell is 24, which is 4 years younger not 6 years older, and their career numbers are pretty close to each other, Powell had a bad year on a deep team and lost his opportunity, Simmons was given basically free reign and put up 14 pts, he's a good 2-way wing that is being wasted on a really bad team, plus I don't really think Magic are at a place where they should be turning down 1st round picks for anybody not on their rookie deal or named Gordon.

16 Aug 2018 19:57:32
Trade #1

Cleveland - Denver

Cleveland trades: Collin Sexton and Tristan Thompson

Denver trades: Jamaal Murray and Gary Harris

Why for Cleveland? Acquire two talented guards that still have room to grow. They could be our backcourt of the future.

Why for Denver? Sexton gives them their point guard of the future. Thompson is added for salary purposes.

Trade #2

Cleveland - Oklahoma City

Cleveland trades: Jordan Clarkson and J. R. Smith

Oklahoma City trades: Steven Adams and Kyle Singler

Why for Cleveland? Upgrade their center position; Adams is an underrated big and fits perfectly next to Love. Singler could be a backup combo forward.

Why for Oklahoma City? They get a starting calliber shooting guard in Clarkson. Smith is added for salary purposes.

Cleveland starting line-up
PG: Jamaal Murray / George Hill
SG: Gary Harris / Kyle Korver
SF: Cedi Osman / Sam Dekker / Kyle Singler
PF: Kevin Love / Larry Nance / Channing Frye
C: Steven Adams / Ante Zizic.

16 Aug 2018 20:13:18
They’re both bad for the other team

Denver gives up 2 proven players that could potentially be allstars at some point. The Cavs would be happy if Sexton was that good.

OKC laughs at the 2nd one. Adams is a top 15 center. Clarkson isn’t good and Smith is just a contract that could be used to dump cap space.

16 Aug 2018 20:44:37
Thanks for the post Cleveland homer!

Sexton may or may not end up being as good as Murray, and Thompson for Harris is just a joke.

Why would OKC need Clarkson with Schroder in town, and why would the Thunder give up Adams, who is key to their defensive success for a selfish, streaky shooter in Smith?

16 Aug 2018 23:52:00
I realize murray and Harris aren't all stars but they are high end nba players. Sexton is a gamble, and Thompson is overpaid.

19 Aug 2018 02:34:04
OKC laughs and hangs up the phone! The only way they move Adams is for a star example Davis. He is under rated and not valued as much as he should be. He is the best offensive rebounder and if not the toughest, one of the toughest strongest players in the NBA. And he can defend the wing for an example look back at a rockets game he hangs with Harden and Paul and in the playoffs that will be very important.

20 Aug 2018 04:07:13
Adams ain't going nowhere for anyone.

15 Aug 2018 23:26:47

Nuggets get Butler

Wolves get Harris/ Lyles/ Beasley

Nuggets make a big move for a possible rental

Wolves get younger talent and more depth.

12 Aug 2018 01:40:02
Simple Trade -- NBA Trade Machine Approved


Denver gets Nader from OKC

Oklahoma City gets Crowder from Utah

Utah gets Abrines from OKC and Hernangomez from Denver.

OKC stretch Singler and waive him.

12 Aug 2018 18:09:45
Utah says no.

13 Aug 2018 01:41:47
okcfan your name fits the direction of this trade.

10 Aug 2018 02:07:08
Thunder & Nuggets

Okc gets Juan Hernangomez PF

Denver gets Nader SF/ SG and cash considerations

Denver has 5 players at Power Forward,3 at Small Forward and 2 at Shooring Guard

OKC has 4 Shooting Guards, 4 Small Forwards and 2 Power Forwards

This is a small trade that can be mutually beneficial on both teams helping both teams alleviate log jams at certain positions with young and unproven talent that is buried deep on their team's bench this year.

Also just an FYI,
Presti is going to keep that 15th spot open after he waives Singler for most of the season for salary and flexibility reasons unless he finds a deal that he can't refuse

09 Aug 2018 04:41:20
Oklahoma and Denver

Okc gets Juan Hernangomez PF

Denver gets Nader SF/ SG and cash considerations

Denver has 5 players at Power Forward,3 at Small Forward and 2 at Shooring Guard

OKC has 4 Shooting Guards, 4 Small Forwards and 2 Power Forwards

This is a small trade that can be mutually beneficial on both teams helping both teams alleviate log jams at certain positions with young and unproven talent that is buried deep on their team's bench this year.

Also just an FYI,
I'm certain Presti is going to keep that 15th roster spot open (after he waves Singler) to give to Burton later this year after he dominates in the G-league.
He'll be Their golden nugget to their 2018/ 19 roster.
It's a cheap way to add quality and depth for the later run in the season.

07 Aug 2018 07:53:33
Washington - Denver

Troy Brown, Ian Mahinmi, Jason Smith (waive) and 2019 1st


Paul Millsap

- Win now mode for Washington
3y before Beal/Porter contracts ending

- More versatile/Range/Scoring paint
Howard Millsap start; Morris play 4 or 5 off the bench + Green

- With their deep veteran bench Was probably won't have playtime for rookies the next 2/3 years

- Brown replacing W.Chandler
In a heavy/Versatile SF Den may need along Barton

- Millsap is 33y old and contract ending
Denver may got less chance to do the playoff this year but with Porter, Brown and Was2019 they improve for the next ones

07 Aug 2018 16:50:26
Is Porter in the deal or not?

03 Aug 2018 22:30:23
Grizzlies get - Crabbe and Arthur

Nuggets get - Carroll

Nets get - Parsons Griz 2019 1st top 8 protected Plumlee Lydon and Den 2nd




04 Aug 2018 01:22:48
Celtics own grizzlies 2019 1sr Rd pick already.

16 Jul 2018 19:24:15
Denver offseason finish

trafe Tyler Lydon,mason plumlee to Atlanta for dewayne Dedmon,2021 2nd

Sign Corey brewer to vet min

Sign Monte Morris to 3yr deal

Schoochie smith 2 way contract

16 Jul 2018 19:55:57
I like morris and brewer. I'd rather have lydon than dedmon already have plumlee as a backup. Lydon shoots the 3 pretty good for a young big.

16 Jul 2018 22:55:17
The nuggets clear up smith bad contract in mason plumlee for expiring dedmond clear up roster spot for brewer.

17 Jul 2018 02:10:56
Plumlee is an underrated facilitator a good rebounder and rim protector. He's a poor man's jokic. I don't view him as a guy nuggets are dying to get rid of. Have lyles, Lydon, jokic, plumlee, milsap. That's a good front line. No need to lose a 2nd for dedmon.
