lakers have also 9/10 milions to use to acquire expiring contract and pick (like calderon) and 50m for the 2018 (pg and resign cousins)

19 May 2017 11:34:53
Why in the world would Pelicans trade Cousins for a worse and older center in Lopez who will be a FA just like Cousins after next season? The fact Lakers are getting Cousins for Houston Pick, Clarkson and Mozgov is comical.

Second trade is almost as terrible. Nobody will give up assets for Deng.

19 May 2017 14:51:49
Hilarious, You use NBrooklyn and Utah to dump two terrible contracts. But in the case of the Pelicans you grab an all star for a far less better Center and a couple second rounders. wow Man that is bad.

20 May 2017 22:39:49
Love Lakers fans. So unrealistic.

19 May 2017 07:22:21
Eric Bledose is a very solid pg signed reasonably for 2 more years that can play very good defense and be a second scoring option on a playoff team. Phx should shop him for younger talent after he is coming off a good, healthy season (he missed only one game before being benched at end of season to allow Suns to tank)

Which of these Eric Bledsoe trades do you think is most reasonable?

1. Bledsoe + #32 to Bulls for #16
Bledsoe would give Bulls a starting caliber pg on a reasonable contract to pair with Butler and create a defensive duo. Bulls could still sign someone like Galo to be a stretch 4. Phx add a younger piece with pick

2. Bledsoe + Warren for Dallas #9
Dallas makes a move that puts them in playoff contention with strong starting pg as well as a young wing in Warren who can score off the bench. Phx get another lotto pick. Can get Tatum and Smith/ Ntilikina to add to young core

3. Bledsoe + #32 to Denver for #13 pick
A lot of potential moves Nuggets could make for Bledsoe but he'd give them a true starting caliber pg that would be deadly combo with Jokic that could push them into playoffs. Phx get another lotto pick to add young talent that will help in the future.

4. Bledsoe to Detroit for #12, Jackson
Jackson looked bad returning from injury and is due a lot of money. They upgrade at pg while saving money with Bledsoe. Phx takes Jacksons bad deal and gets a lotto pick too. Phx would probably try to make a move for Stanley Johnson too who seems under-utilized.

5. Bledose to Indy for #18 pick
indy already has Teague but he would cost double Bledsoe's salary to resign. The money saved could be used to bring in more help via FA and help Pacers build a more formidable team to make a last stand to keep George.

19 May 2017 10:07:21
I think the Denver deal is the best here and could potentially get them into the playoffs while giving the suns a decent pick in return.

19 May 2017 14:39:08
OK. how about :
Bledsoe, #32 pick this year. and Miami's 2018 1st. to Orlando for #6 and some filler.

19 May 2017 19:48:23
I like the Denver move. It works for both sides, and the value both get are great. I don't know if 16 or 18 are good enough picks for me to move Bledsoe straight up. he's not perfect, but I'm not sure if you're getting someone better than him there, even in this draft.

If I'm Dallas, I have to start thinking about getting some youth in there. Dirk only has a year or two left, and while I'm all about giving him a last hurrah, you also have to think about the future when you can. They need to bring in a kid to build their next generation. The Detroit trade is interesting, as they have plenty of cap space to bring Jackson in to just sit the bench if they wanted.

#12 is a very enticing return for that, but I don't do it just because of how bad he seems to be for the culture of his teams. I don't want a guy like that infecting my young kids.

16 May 2017 08:53:13
Wade opts in he was looking at Denver b4 bulls trade him plus nikola mirotic bulls 19 1st and couple 2nds and jerian grant for Gary Harris n Wilson Chandler gallo sign trade.

16 May 2017 13:22:26
Why wouldn't he just opt out and sign with the Nuggets?

16 May 2017 14:03:19
Um he's not getting 23m from the nuggets.

16 May 2017 14:30:48
Nugs have the money to sign him, and they give up way too much in this deal to make this worthwhile.

16 May 2017 14:38:33
If they wouldn't give him 23 million in free agency, why would they give up half their team for him?

14 May 2017 16:56:25

10 May 2017 18:56:15
I gasped at your contract for Roberson. He's going to want 40-50 million, and he'll find someone that'll pay it.

10 May 2017 19:00:42
Why should OKC give away a budding star like Kanter for so little? Chicago should atleast have to throw in their next 4 firsts.

10 May 2017 19:23:44
You can't S&T on draft day, and why would the Bulls do this?

10 May 2017 20:46:01
It's not the worst return I've seen for Butler, but it's far from the best. It would be a good trade for OKC, but I also don't see why Denver would do it. I like Roberson, but he's strictly a lockdown defender at this point. Chandler does a little of everything well. They aren't getting anything back to make the swap of those two guys worth it. It's pretty much a meaningless trade for them, and they make one of their conference rivals much better in the process.

11 May 2017 00:13:38
I agree with BMiller - $7 mil a year for Roberson is not even the MLE.

11 May 2017 12:29:43
rkenne, did you just call kanter a budding star? A center, who just finished his 5th year, who scores 14 and grabs 6 boards and provides some of the worst big man defense in the league. a budding a star? A man who isn't even number 1 center on his team? A man who isn't a top 10 big man, and possibly not top 20.a budding star?

Well, guess that let's us know your baseline fgor all your other ridiculous comments.

11 May 2017 14:31:10
He was being sarcastic Hamburger. He also said to include 4 firsts.

05 May 2017 22:37:00
Spurs/ Nuggets

To SAS - Faried, Barton


Leonard is now the focal point of the offense, and because of that, Aldridge looks lost. Denver is looking for some star power, and though LMA isn't as sexy as Blake, he's healthier and cheaper. He would play well along side Jokic, who is good playing on the interior while LMA sitting closer to the basket.

Manimal is a good low usage rebounder and hustle guy while Barton would either be a nice replacement for Manu if he retires, or a starting two guard if the Spurs move Green.

Future 2nd Round Pick from OKC
(maybe 2 2nd Round picks)
-2 from the Trade Machine

Oklahoma City gets

Thunder keeps 2017 1st Round Pick

This may not be perfect - but workable.

03 May 2017 15:42:36
OKC would then have 2 centers (who absolutely can't play together) taking up nearly half of their payroll.

04 May 2017 15:33:27
OKC will have Dwight Howard and Steve Adams as your Centers and Chandler from Denver is really Wilson Chandler - a Small Forward that might help the Thunder in the long term.

To make things right with Denver ... I would give them the 1st round Pick in 2017 in exchange for 2 2nd round pick to make the deal a little better for Denver of which I have no problem with.

30 Apr 2017 23:51:06

Bucks get: Gary Harris, 2nd Round pick

Nuggets Get: Rashad Vaughn, 1st round pick

03 May 2017 20:04:08
This trade is only good for the Bucks. Denver doesn't need more first rounders. Try again.

29 Apr 2017 16:55:28
Spurs offseason moves to win a title

-Trade Tony Parker to Denver for Jameer Nelson

-Manu Ginobli retires

29- Tyler Lydon (Syracuse)

•Free Agency:
-Sign Chris Paul to whatever they have or he wants
-Re-sign Pau Gasol 2yr 20m
-Re-sign Dewayne Dedmon 2yr 16m
-Re-sign David Lee 1yr 7m
-Re-sign Jonathan Simmons 3yr 35m
-Bring over Nikola Mutinov

PG: Paul, Murray, Nelson
SG: Green, Simmons, Forbes
SF: Leonard, Anderson, Bertans
PF: Aldridge, Lee, Lydon
C: Dedmon, Gasol, Mutinov.

29 Apr 2017 17:17:59
Why would Denver want to take on Parker's contract?

29 Apr 2017 17:26:54
Why not? He could be a great veteran to help the young ones. If not Denver, then San Antonio could dump him to another team.

29 Apr 2017 18:43:29
The guy has been steadily declining the past 3 years and will make almost 16 million next year. He's looked solid so far in the playoffs, but why would a young team want to wrap up a bunch of cap space in Tony Parker? He's not even a top 20 pg any more.

29 Apr 2017 20:38:15
Parker is declining for sure, but he still has value. I could see the Knicks wanting him if they don't land a guard in the draft.

27 Apr 2017 19:32:03
Atlanta Hawks Offseason Plans
START REBUILDING because this team does not have a future.

Let Hardaway walk. Don't need to overpay another guard (Bazemore was the first) and be stuck in a situation like the Trailblazers.

Trade 1
ATL: Favors and Burks
Utah: Millsap (S&T)

Reasoning: Utah gets an all star 4 that pairs well with Gobert. Millsap returns to his former team. Utah only has the cap space to sign Millsap if it's a sign in trade because they have a lot of salary already on the books for next season. Atlanta gets two often injured players but both are still young and may just need a change of scenery. Favors gets to play in his hometown. Burks can add some offense punch to an offensively deficient team.

Trade 2:
ATL: Ramon Sessions (CHA picks up option), Jeremy Lamb, and 2017 Cha 1st
Cha: Dwight Howard, Wilson Chandler, Jameer Nelson
Den: Nicolas Batum

Reasoning: Atlanta gets a veteran backup pg and a shooter who is from Atlanta. A draft pick also helps their miniature rebuild. Charlotte gets a big who could thrive in the pick and roll with kemba and provides interior defense. Chandler gives them some bench scoring. Nelson is a great veteran pg to solidify a second unit. Denver gets batum whose high basketball IQ, ability to play multiple positions, and length could help a young, defensively challenged team.

Atlanta drafts Zach Collins with Charlotte pick, drafts Terrance Ferguson with own pick, and drafts Jawun Evans with Brooklyn's 2nd round pick.

Atlanta gets two of the youngest players in the draft, who both remain very unknown because of a lack of playing time. Evans could be a very good backup pg in the future.

27 Apr 2017 22:23:44
I had the idea in mind too of a Millsap sign and trade for Favors and Burks. I like that trade.

28 Apr 2017 03:28:18
Noone does sign and trades anymore.

28 Apr 2017 04:08:04
I'm all for the millsap back to Utah idea.

28 Apr 2017 16:43:32
The best part of this. IF it happened. Is that it leaves Atlanta about 20 million under the cap. Enough to go after a decent FA.

25 Apr 2017 21:35:50
Charlotte Hornets offseason

-Trade MKG and #11 pick to Denver for Wilson Chandler, #13 pick, and Jameer Nelson

13- Bam Adebayo (Kentucky)
41- Devin Robinson (Florida)

-Decline Ramon Sessions team option

•Free Agency:
-Sign Sergio Rodriguez 2yr MLE

PG: Walker, Rodriguez, Nelson
SG: Batum, Bellinelli, Graham
SF: Chandler, Lamb, Robinson
PF: Williams, Adebayo, O'Bryant
C: Zeller, Kaminsky, Plumlee.

25 Apr 2017 22:17:22
I'm on the fence on this one, it's not bad, but moving Chandler for MKG and to move up two spots in the draft may be just a little too little for the Nuggets to say yes.

26 Apr 2017 01:51:12
I don't think you'll have to draft adebayo that early.

26 Apr 2017 03:50:40
We know the Nuggets need defense and MKG is young and on a decent contract.

24 Apr 2017 21:38:16

Hornets get Wilson Chandler and #13 pick and (Jameer Nelson? )

Nuggets get MKG and #11 pick.

24 Apr 2017 22:58:02
I don't think its unreasonable. Although Chandler was a key contributor this past season for Nuggets he isn't a difference maker so it may be in their best interest to get younger with MKG and move up lottery a little bit. Chandler also has potentially 1 year left on contract (player option for 18-19) so it may be smart to cash him in now.

Hornets get another versatile wing player like Batum and he would give them a significant offensive improvement over MKG especially with the increased spacing. Imo there isn't much difference between #11 and 13 in this years draft so don't think Hornets loose much there.

25 Apr 2017 02:54:58
I think this could be good for Hornets trading back for Bam Adebayo. He could be a great fit beside Kaminsky off the bench.

25 Apr 2017 18:44:13
No one answers if it is good for Denver. which it doens't make any sense for them.

16 Apr 2017 15:08:19
If Lakers gets 3rd pick and Lonzo Ball and Markelle Fultz is gone.

Knicks - Lakers

Knicks gets: Denver, Mozgov and 3rd pick

Lakers gets: Anthony, O'Quinn, 2nd round pick

16 Apr 2017 15:50:49

16 Apr 2017 16:10:25
Wow, that's REALLY valuing Anthony low. Knicks aren't taking back those contracts, even with 3rd pick attached. Although PJax is a disaster so maybe.

16 Apr 2017 17:57:38
100% disagree with 23. If you can take two bad contracts in a full rebuild for a top 5 pick, it's not even a question, you do it. Cap space really doesn't matter to the knicks right now, they're not signing a big time free agent. Take the rebuilding pieces and use your cap space to accelerate the rebuild.

16 Apr 2017 18:00:15
Moz, Deng, Nance, Young and 3rd pk. for Melo, Noah, O'Quinn, and 6th pk.

16 Apr 2017 21:06:47
How can you really rebuild with 3 more years of $35mm crap on the books?

17 Apr 2017 01:40:49
Through the draft and rookie contracts. 35 million is 1/ 3 of the cap, it's one max level player. You rebuild around zinger, the two picks this year, and next year's inevitable top 5 pick. By the time you have to pay your top tier rookies, those two are off the books.

17 Apr 2017 03:04:43
$35mm + $17mm for Noah. What are you talking about is being the worst team in the nba for 3 years at a minimum and praying a couple draft picks hit. This would be a Sixers type disaster but only with a high payroll while the process plays out. This is NYK. They can move Melo for a decent piece or two and sign a big name once Melo is gone. NY can get a free agent with Zinger, a decent piece for Melo and Cap Space. They don't need to take on two awful contracts to add to Noah's for Josh Jackson. Makes no sense at all.

17 Apr 2017 16:55:32
With the Zinger being unhappy with Jackson and the possible departure of Melo the Knicks are going to be the same as the Nets. A mess. as well as the LAC (prior to the sale of the team) . A circus act.

Dolan needs to fire Jackson and sell the team. Let someone that wants a winning environment own the team.

17 Apr 2017 17:33:52
When's the last time the knicks signed a big time free agent that panned out? They're not the big time destination that knicks fans wish they were. No one wants to go play for Dolan and Jackson. They have to rebuild through the draft, and getting a top 5 pick for cap space is a great move. They wouldn't have to be the worst team in the NBA for 3 years so long as they actually make smart picks. The 76ers used 4 lottery picks on guys that didn't play their first year over the last 3 years, that's what made their rebuild sooooo long. The knicks could move faster with smart (and lucky) picks.

19 Apr 2017 18:15:42
Knicks - Muiday and 2019 first
Denver - Antony.

I know that's not a lot for Anthony but they are under valuing him by a huge amount. With him leaving LaLa then this might be better for him.

11 Apr 2017 03:13:07
Nuggets get Steven Adams, Andre Roberson, Kyle Singler and Semaj Christon

Thunder get Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Jameer Nelson, and 2018 1st rd pick

Pf. K. Faried/ D. Sabonis
Sf. W. Chandler/ D. Mcdermot
C. E. Kanter/ B. Abedayo (1st DP)
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Abrines
Pg. R. Westbrook/ J. Nelson

Pf. N. Jokic/ J. Hernangomez
Sf. D. Gallinari/ A. Roberson
C. S. Adams/ Z. Collins (1st dp)
Sg. W. Barton/ J. Murray
Pg. E. Mudiay/ G. Harris

11 Apr 2017 06:33:04
Thunder aren't giving up Adams for that. Chandler would be a good fit for them but I don't see that offer justifying giving up Adams who is young, proven and gives them a banger inside.

11 Apr 2017 15:37:49
That's an UNPROTECTED 2018 1st round pick. insurance for a rebuild if Westbrook leaves.

11 Apr 2017 23:26:34
According to the NBA Trade Machine this trade would not work because of Adams's Contract - The Nuggets has to give up $17 Million in Salary and this trade can't be done because Roberson is a restricted free agent next Summer and this has to be a sign/trade deal to make it work. Sorry no trade.

12 Apr 2017 01:32:27
No from Thunder for giving up Adams, no from Nuggets as they don't have a need for him with Jokic in town.

22 Apr 2017 22:03:45
It's already been proven that Jokic can't play the 4 so the Nuggs aren't trading for a 5. Get outta here clown.

10 Apr 2017 21:56:58

Thunder get Wilson Chandler, Darrell Arthur, and Jameer Nelson

Nuggets get Enes Kanter and Andre Roberson (s&t)
