Pelicans' way

1st trade:
Pelicans get Beal, Kuzma, future LA 1st
Lakers get AD, Moore
Wizards get Ingram, 4th pick

2nd trade:
Pelicans get Plumlee
Nuggets get future 1st for cap relief/flexibility (could cut Milsap and sign FA like Butler)

3rd trade (s&t):
Pelicans get Justin Holiday
Grizzlies get Hill, 2nd round pick

Resign Payton, Diallo, Okafor & Miller


13 Jun 2019 18:19:40
I don’t think the Lakers will want to take anyone back except for Davis.

13 Jun 2019 18:55:56
Beal>Ingram + #4 pick.

13 Jun 2019 06:19:50
A silly idea

The Hornets send: Nick Batum, Malik Monk, 12th pick, and 2020 first rounder
Hornets receive: Gary Harris and M. Plumlee

Nuggets send: Gary Harris and M. Plumlee
Nuggets receive: Picks 9, 12, Hornets 2020 first rounder, Malik Monk, and John Wall.

Wizards send: John Wall and the 9th pick
Wizards receive: Nick Batum

Hornets get off one of the worse contracts in the NBA and get back a good starter on a fine salary who’a size and skillset is perfect fit next to Kemba. He also brings scoring that’s desperately needed for the team. I figured it would cost 2 first just to bribe someone to take Batum and another to get Gary.

Washington cuts 15 mil off of both of the next 2 years. Then there off Batum while Walk is still cost 42-44 mil a year. Batum’s also more of an offball guy who could settle better into a complimentary role.

This started by me wondering what move the Nuggets could make to get into the draft so they could take Brandon Clarke, who would be the perfect compliment for Jokic due to his ability to guard literally every position and his need for a Center who can stretch the floor (Clark’s game close to the bucket is actually worth the trouble of a floor stretching 5). The Nuggets get 2 lottery picks this year, another next year, and a former first rounder in Monk just to take on Wall’s money and lose Gary. Nuggets will have the space after declining Millsap’s option and Wall might actually have some upside left in there to harness, and if he doesn’t you still got 4 young assets for him. The Nuggets at this point would have a bit of a jam of upcoming players and could try to package some of those guys including Monk for another deal.

15 Jun 2019 19:28:00
Why would anyone, forget about the nuggets, take on Wall? Absolutely not. Washington has to eat that for the life of the contract and so does Houston with Paul.

05 Jun 2019 21:16:00
Pels - Harris MPJ Beasley Hernangomez and 2 future1st
Nuggets - AD



05 Jun 2019 21:24:20
Not a bad offer, but I think it's easily beaten by other teams offers.

03 Jun 2019 22:34:24

Nuggets- Holiday

Pelicans- Harris, Porter, 1st rd pick

Yes hard to give up Porter for Nuggets but they can an all star caliber talent in Holiday to pair with Jokic & Murray

G- Murray-
G- Holiday-Beasley
F- Craig-Barton
F- Millsap-Lyles-Hernangomez
C- Jokic-Plumlee


Pelicans- Barrett, Knox, Robinson & Dallas 1st rounders

Knicks- Davis

Pelicans young deep roster
G- Payton-Clark
G- Harris-Moore
F- Barrett-Porter-Johnson-Hill
F- Zion-Knox
C- Robinson-Okafor

05 Jun 2019 05:20:53
Nuggets get hosed. no way. Way too much for Holiday. Maybe Harris straight up. nothin more.

22 May 2019 23:02:26
Boston/ Detroit/ Denver

Boston get Barton/ Kennard/ Reggie Jackson

Detroit get J. Brown/ G. Harris

Denver get Hayward Galloway

Boston get rid of Hayward contract, they get a solid pg If irving and rozier leave, and also a solid 3p shooter kennard.

Denver get a former and still a possible futute all star in Hayward and Galloway for Harris and Barton i think it s a good risk to try go futher in playoffs

Detroit i m not sure if this help or not Detroit.


22 May 2019 23:10:01
Denver gets screwed.

22 May 2019 23:26:53
Boston isn't going to give up Brown without getting a starter in return. None of those guys the Celtics get would start for them. Kennard might not even get rotation minutes.

22 May 2019 23:42:20
Lol you are not sure if it helps Detroit? This is a highway robbery for them.

23 May 2019 00:22:12
I love it. Don’t give up brown unless you get a starter. Wel. He isn’t a starter so that doesn’t make sense. Additionally you give up one of the worst contracts in the league. So that’s a thing as well lol. Man those Celtics are looking worse and worse lol.

23 May 2019 01:08:09
I agree notdrainer. I love how they are overrating these Boston young guys while their values are declining. Maybe if Kyrie leaves they’ll be back to their 2018 playoffs selves.

23 May 2019 10:07:25
I think it's funny how you say that Boston fans overvalue our players. There isn't one person here that doesn't do the same. SMH. Lol
Not sure if anyone saw the article, but they talking to NBA exec's. GM's, Scouts, etc, and most of them said that they valued Jaylen Brown almost as much as Tatum.

19 May 2019 04:58:00
LA Clips trade Gallo and a 2019 first rounder

Denver trades either Barton and Lyles or Lyles and Plumlee

Clips get some abilities to trade with Lyles or can use him on his restricted deal at 4.7. They can trade Barton or keep him. Then they go off and get Leonard.

Denver gets Gallo for one year to mentor MPJ to act like the SF that the young guy needs.

19 May 2019 09:20:36
LAC doesn't have a 2019 1st, Boston owns it. Due to the Stipien Rule a team can't trade consecutive 1sts, so the earliest they could trade a 1st is 2021.

19 May 2019 13:38:46
Clippers can trade their 2020 first immediately after Boston makes a draft selection using the Clippers 2019 first round pick per the Stepien Rule.

However, Lyles cannot be traded as he is entering his RFA per the CBA.

21 May 2019 00:58:18
So what about Barton for Gallo. straight up.

18 May 2019 01:36:12
Okay, I would love to see the Pacers sign a big time free agent or event trade for a all-star level player. However, I just don't think they'll be able to sign anyone like that and to trade for an all-star might cost more that they want to pay. So here is my thoughts:

-Pacers trade the #18 pick to Phoenix for T.J. Warren.
-Pacers trade T.J. Leaf and D. McDermott to Denver for W. Barton.
- Pacers sign N. Vonleh for $10M/yr.
- Pacers sign J. Lamb for $13M/yr and move V. Oladipo to the Point.
- Pacers sign M. Kleber for $10M/yr.
- Pacers re-sign Bogie for 2yr/$31M early bird. Do this last!


09 May 2019 17:48:02
Wizards / Nuggets trade

Wizards trade: Brad Beal, Ian Manhimi
Nuggets trade: Gary Harris, Michael Porter Jr, Malik Beasley, 2020 first 2022 second.

09 May 2019 19:19:16
It’s fair value, but I wouldn’t want to give up far and away my best perimeter defender.

19 May 2019 16:19:19
Sorry Denver doesn’t have to give up that much. Maybe Harris and a first for Beal? He’s got a huge contract and is untradable in ways.

08 May 2019 15:26:39
Obviously post trade both teams would need to make another move or two to maximize their teams, but what about

Jamal Murray for Ben Simmons.

The Nuggets make another move or two to add some more shooting afterward. The 76ers do everything they can to keep Harris and Butler plus try to add someone like Beverly that can be another secondary facilitator, shoot and defend.

08 May 2019 16:13:26
Let's face it Simmons is a good reg. Season player, and a below avg post season player. The guy disappears way to often. Murray seems to get better as the stakes get higher. Take away being the #1 pick and all the hype and Simmons is nothing more than a role player.

08 May 2019 16:55:13
I wouldn't trade Murray for Simmons. Murray has all the tools to be as good as any PG in the NBA.

That said, calling Simmons a role player is not true at all. He's a 22 year old, 6'10, point guard all star in his second year. He's only going to get better. 17/ 9/ 8, PER of 20, and a solid defender. None of that screams role player. It says he's young. Maybe (likely) he never turns into a #1 option, but how many of those are there in the NBA? Being a second or third option isn't a horrible thing.

08 May 2019 17:44:38
Rkeene- how does that trade help Denver? isn't a younger cheaper version of Simmons on their roster in mpj?

08 May 2019 18:51:31
I don’t see Murray as a top flight pg in the NBA. He’s more of a combo that needs protected on the defensive end. So does Jokic. There fatal flaw is going to be playing teams like the Rockets and Warriors that are just going to force both guys to defend on the perimeter. Now, if you have the right personnel, you can protect one of them, but they can’t protect both and with Millsap on the decline, they don’t have the switchable defenders they need. Throw in Simmons and that’s no longer a problem. He’s the defender they need and with Jokic, they can utilize Simmons cutting, utilized his transition ability, let him stay inside to get offensive boards, and they don’t need his spacing. He also takes a lot of pressure off of Jokic to create everything for everyone else.

Murray can create his own offense, play on and off ball, the Sixers have guys to protect him, he fits with Embiid, and he’s the 1 on 1 offensive player that they need.

09 May 2019 13:35:45
Why would you take the ball out of Jokic's hands and put it in Simmons hands?

25 Mar 2019 14:13:18
Nuggets get Davis, Hill

Pelicans get Harris,Porter Jr, Beasley 2020 1st 2022 1st

25 Mar 2019 17:31:43
gotta include murray.

23 Mar 2019 07:37:06
'20 1st


DEN picks up option and trades him

23 Mar 2019 13:13:29
Millsap has fallen off pretty considerably the past few years. 2 or 3 years ago I could see it, but now, it seems like a steep overpay.

23 Mar 2019 14:28:39
Thought it matched your Aldridge deal pretty closely.

23 Mar 2019 15:35:14
I guess, it’s just how you see Millsap and Aldridge. Aldridge is older, but he seems to be holding his value better than Millsap imo.

23 Mar 2019 16:33:10
Same for Exum too I guess.

23 Mar 2019 23:49:45
Denver better off dropping milsap make a run at KD. Porter as his backup.

19 Mar 2019 17:54:36
The Pelicans get Plumlee(exp), Barton, Murray, Porter, Gordon(buyout), the nuggets 20, and 22 1sts, the Rockets 20 1st and 22 1st top 10 protected, and they save 15 million

The Nuggets get Davis, Holiday and Moore

The Rockets get Harris

The Pelicans get a ton to rebuild with and a potential all star in Murray. If Tatum isn't on the table, it's hard to find a trade that checks this many boxes. They save a ton of money, they get a player to start rebuilding around, they get a boat load of picks, they get young talent and Barton can be flipped easily.

The Nuggets end up loaded. There's a lot of draw for Davis as well. Jokic fits next to Davis perfectly. This is one of the few spots where it makes sense for Davis to play the 4. If Durant leaves, this would be the favorite in the west.

The Rockets get a 3 and d wing and an upgrade over Gordon.

20 Mar 2019 14:53:02
They are not trading Holiday, they won't even entertain it.

12 Mar 2019 23:43:45
S&T Butler


06 Mar 2019 20:07:04
This may seem strange BUT is it possible for the Lakers to trade LBJ? Hear me out...The Lakers are on the verge to lose more games than they did last year. They have Ingram, Ball, Hart, Kuzma and a max slot coming open......
Could a team like Denver, that "should " be in "win now" mode next season send Harris, Porter Jr, Barton, Hernangomez and an unprotected 1st to LA for Lebron?
I'm a Laker fan BTW... That's something that a star free agent can buy into. Let's say we can swing for Durant and Thompson ....

Durant/Porter Jr

With all those assets, you could possibly find a trade partner for that 3rd star.

06 Mar 2019 22:20:31
Lebron has to much power to trade without there being huge problems. He could threaten them with clutch, he can threaten to retire, and he could just trash the team that the Lakers were in talks with to the media. Not to mention that any team that trades for him has to have enough left over
To immediately make a run next year. I just don’t see anyone giving up enough for the Lakers to pull the trigger and that’s even if Lebron doesn’t intentionally drive his own value down. His market value is probably a lot closer to a guy like Jimmy Butler than AD.

06 Mar 2019 23:11:13
Why would Durant and Thompson leave Golden State for a LeBron less Laker team?

06 Mar 2019 23:35:08
Is it possible? Technically, yes. But actually no. If the Lakers trade LBJ, the Lakers will never be able to sign for another Klutch represented player again. Period.

27 Feb 2019 12:10:59

Raptors get Malik Beasley
Nuggets get Chris Boucher (non-guaranteed), Malcolm Miller (non-guaranteed) and TOR's 2021 1st round pick (lottery protected)

* Raptors will pay much higher luxury tax next year if Kawhi stays. With this move, Raptors can save millions. Instead, $10M-p/a renewal for Danny Green, who may demand more, would cost about $35M more on team's bill, than Beasley's acquisition.
* Nuggets are already rich at SG/SF spot, and committed some money on Jokic, Harris and Barton (Murray will soon join that list). Beasley will be restricted free agent in 2020, and they may want to spend some on PF spot. So, getting a 1st round pick for a rental makes sense for them.

Any thoughts?

27 Feb 2019 17:34:49
You want to trade a top seed team's player that on the rise in his rookie contract to potentially who they face in the finals for a 1st 3 year from now. Smh.

25 Feb 2019 00:22:38
Nets Of season moves

1) Nets- Wolves
Nets: Saric+covington
Wolves: 1rnd pick Denver+ Dinwidie

Nets draft:Bol Bol or J Porter
2nd round: T Jerome

Resign Russell 120M for 4 years
Q-offer for Hollins Jefferson
E Davis 6M for 1 year

Sign R Bullock 36M for 3 years
Sign T Young 20M for 1 year

C: J Allen/Bol Bol/ E Davis
PF: Saric/ Young
SF: covington/J Harris/ Hollins-Jefferson
PG:Russell/Napier/T Jerome

25 Feb 2019 06:49:37
Why would the Wolves do that?

25 Feb 2019 11:01:59
I believe Dinwidie fits the Wolves system, he's a great pointguard that can play next to Wiggins and KAT.
Wolves are stuck with Wiggins, so they need to make him better.

25 Feb 2019 13:44:34
Gasupo- canyon they draft a pg and keep roco n saric?

25 Feb 2019 15:10:39
They can, but Saric is going to be a free agent in 2020 and going to ask for big money.
Dinwidie is on a friendley contract and they get an extra draft pick
Wolves could draft: D Hunter and K Porter two prospects on friendley contracts for years.

22 Feb 2019 16:03:29
Nets- Was

Was: Crabbe+ LeVert+Harris+ 1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick Denver+ 1rnd pick 2020

Nets: Beal

Nets sign: T Harris
resign: Russell
Q-offer: Hollins-Jefferson

C:J Allen
PF: Harris
SF: Hollins Jefferson
sixth: Dinwidie

22 Feb 2019 17:33:41
No way that anyone would give up that much for Beal.

22 Feb 2019 17:37:24
Make that nets 2020 pick a 2021 pick.

22 Feb 2019 18:32:21
The nets have a shot at Durant and Leonard added to their young group. Russell, Levert, Dinwiddie, Allen, Kurucs, Harris, Musa. Also, Beal has cred with the fans, and keeps seat bottoms warm for a tough road ahead. He couldn't hurt season ticket sales either.

18 Feb 2019 10:42:11
Nets Off season moves

Nets: Future 2nd round pick
Sac: Crabbe+ 1rnd pick Denver

Nets: /
Milwaukee:future 2nd Atlanta and future 2rnd rnd pick Sac

18 Feb 2019 11:10:28
Dallas match.

18 Feb 2019 12:49:49
They could sign T Harris for a 100M 4year deal and D Rose 14M 2 year deal, if Dallas match the offer.

18 Feb 2019 15:27:34
Kings are all over that first part. But not sure how they pull that off because the Nets will not know if Crabbe is opting in or out for the 2019-20 season on draft day. Most likely he is, but are tge Nets willing to be stuck with the Kings draft selection if Crabbe opts out?

18 Feb 2019 16:42:05
You think Dallas gave up DSJ and two future 1st to have Porzingis on their roster (not playing) for the rest of this season? He isn't going anywhere.

18 Feb 2019 17:23:31
Crabbe is making 18.5 M. next year. Why would he opt out?

18 Feb 2019 17:28:01
Crabbe opting out would be very shocking. I can't see any situation where he does that.

18 Feb 2019 19:58:13
If Crabbe opted out of 18.5 he wouldn't make that much the rest of his career.

09 Feb 2019 01:56:25
Cavs offseason

Jr smith to nets for Allen Crabbe And nuggets 1st

Jordan Clarkson to detriot for glen robinson,2020 1st top 16 protected and 2019 second

Kevin love,Tristan Thompson to Charlotte for pick 14,Bismarck Biyombo,Marvin Williams,2022 2nd,2020 2nd,2024 2nd,2019 2nd,Willy Hernangomez

09 Feb 2019 04:20:13
Maybe on trade #1

Definately no on trades #2 .

06 Feb 2019 23:16:32
Saw the Nuggets are willing (not looking) to trade Gary harris with the emergence of malik beasley

DEN: J. Leur (cap filler) L. Kennard FRP top 8 protected

DET: Gary Harris

07 Feb 2019 00:37:00
Unprotected 19 1st kennard holds no value.

07 Feb 2019 00:46:31
No protection, not that it would be needed. Harris makes DET a playoff team.

07 Feb 2019 06:20:18
Horrible deal.
