MEM-DEN Offseason Trade

Grizzlies Receive: Mason Plumlee, Kenneth Faried, Tyler Lydon, 2020 second round pick, 2019 top 17 protected pick

The Grizzlies have to take on Kenneth Faried who isn't worth the 12 million that you have to pay him But he only has about two years left and Memphis really won't attract any big free agents at all. Mason Plumlee could learn a lot from Marc Gasol and possibly raise his ceiling. Two future pick will be thrown in to sweeten the pot for Memphis as they use their franchise cornerstone to a conference rival. They will be going into to full rebuild mode after this season and will want to tank+dump their stars for some future assets.

Grizzlies Starting Lineup:

1-Andrew Harrison
2-Wayne Selden (Tyreke Evans walks)
3-Dillon Brooks
4-Jamycal Green
5-Marc Gasol

Nuggets Receive: Mike Conley, Deyonta Davis, Ben Mclemore

The Nuggets, who are in "win now" mode, finally get their point guard to be the catalyst of the offense+young/bench pieces for the future and present.

Nuggets lineup:

1-Mike Conley
2-Gary Harris
3-Will Barton
4-Paul Millsap
5-Nikola Jokic
Sixth Man=Jamal Murray

14 Feb 2018 18:21:18
Memphis passes. I can't see them taking on an over priced Plumlee, Faried's expiring, Lydon (just under went a knee surgery and hasn't played a minute this year), a late 1st, and a 2nd. It probably costs a 1st just to get rid of Plumlee.

14 Feb 2018 20:18:33
DEN plays well with Jokic, and Plumlee on the floor together. Plumlee is a bit more physical than Jokic, and passes equally as well. Both teams lose key pieces to their core. Both teams pass.

14 Feb 2018 23:19:43
The Grizzlies want to clear out the long term deal of Mike Conley and the Nuggets desperately need a point guard to run the offense. That is more crucial to them than physicality in the paint. Tyler Lydon was a first round draft pick, they get future picks which is exactly what they need. They don't even have a first rounder from 2017 and nearly any youth. I don't see why Denver or Memphis would pass.

15 Feb 2018 11:39:44
Never heard a thing about the Griz "wanting" or "needing" to trade Gasol or Conley? Is that a sporting news trade rumor? I avoid that particular site. Jamal Murray has been great, and getting better as the season passes. Just beat the tar out of S. A. Last night? I am not as informed about these teams dealings, or privy to your information stream.

11 Feb 2018 19:08:14
Where I'd like to see some of the top possible free agents sign

•Tony Allen: Cavs or Thunder
•Vince Carter: Celtics or Raptors
•Derrick Rose: Wizards, Nuggets, or Warriors
•Nerlens Noel: Cavs or Spurs
•Josh McRoberts: Thunder or Spurs
•Ersan Ilyasova: Raptors or Thunder
•Shabazz Muhammad: Pelicans or Wizards
•G. Papagiannis: Thunder or Spurs.

12 Feb 2018 02:54:31
I’d like to see carter or Ilyasova go to the pistons. They need a shooter like Ersan.

13 Feb 2018 17:24:25
that's funny I was going to say the raptors for both raptora waive a player to bring in both.

08 Feb 2018 13:32:48
Denver gets Joe Johnson, Crowder, the Cavs 18 1st and a Cavs 2nd

Utah gets Chandler, Frye(exp), and Rose(exp)

The Cavs get Mudiay and Favors

08 Feb 2018 14:51:05
I like this trade for the Cavs and Denver.
But Utah should trade Favors trade for younger assets or keep him.

08 Feb 2018 15:21:05
I think the problem with keeping Favors for them is that he'll probably get close to 15 million, he doesn't fit at pf well in the league and next to Gobert, they have a solid cheap back up center in Epke already, and the roster needs help in other areas. Resigning both Favors and Hood (plus potentially Exum) will put them well over the soft cap. It's rumored that they have interest in Chandler, but I would imagine that Denver wants a first out of him. I'm not sure that Utah should give that up. This helps them get the first for him without giving up their future assets.

08 Feb 2018 16:02:12
DEN has made offers for Evans. Mudiay is essentially a pick, or developing talent. Why would DEN want a late 1st, and a 2nd for a former Lottery pick?

08 Feb 2018 16:15:39
Jorga, Mudiay has gotten less minutes every year in the league and they've continually been looking for a starting pg, while also having Murray. They clearly don't view him as the future of the position and it doesn't appear they don't seem him as valuable player. It's also rumored they're looking to move him or Chandler for a 1st to get rid of Faried with.

08 Feb 2018 17:05:38
Less minutes every year in the league? He is still on a rookie contract! I am aware of the RUMORS! How is a late pick, a 2nd, and Crowder, Johnson = a starting caliber point guard? I disagree with you, and I don't think Mudiay is junk. He's shown signs of being good. He just isn't better than Harris, Murray, or Barton. Doesn't mean he gets traded for garbage. He's good enough for CLE though. Surprise, surprise!

08 Feb 2018 17:40:56
Moot point now, but I don't see Mudiay as even an average starting pg. Maybe low end, but probably a solid back up that's still young. He could develop and his shot has improved, but obviously, he isn't where Denver or anyone thought he would be at this point.

08 Feb 2018 20:08:08
Jorga, Mudiay was traded for a 2nd. Haha.

07 Feb 2018 18:41:04

Denver gets- George Hill

Sacremento gets- Alex Abrines, Kyle Singler, 2nd rd pick (OKC)

New York gets- Emmanuel Mudiay, Kenneth Faried

Oklahoma City gets- Courtney Lee

What do you think?

07 Feb 2018 20:53:30
New York is basicly trading a 32 year old wing for an amazing point gaurd and a pretty solid big man.

07 Feb 2018 23:05:49
On what world is Mudiay an "amazing point guard"?

08 Feb 2018 02:57:28
Amazing? Get off 2k and watch a game. Denver has been trying to unload mudiay, because he's been a bum.

06 Feb 2018 12:38:52

Nuggets get Devin Harris and Tyson Chandler
-Get 2 veterans to help playoff push and saves a lot of future money

Mavs get Dragan Bender and Mason Plumlee
-Take on Plumlee's bad deal to acquire Bender who could learn from Dirk

Suns get Emmanuel Mudiay, Nerlens Noel, and Darrell Arthur
-Finally get a young point guard and they take a chance on Noel.

06 Feb 2018 13:08:48
Mavs and Suns probably say yes. Not so sure about the Nuggets.

06 Feb 2018 15:21:26
Jokic and Barton are free agents for the Nuggets and they're both due for significant raises. The Nuggets shave off about 11m off their books for next year in this deal. And plus, Chandler has 1 year less than Plumlee and Chandler could be a good verteran presence and rim protecter for Denver.

06 Feb 2018 19:15:20
The suns had several chances to get Noel, and mudiay and passed, so why would they do it Now? If they want Noel they can just sign him in the offseason. Dallas wouldn't even get a 2nd rounder out of him since he's not playing, and a unrestricted free agent.

06 Feb 2018 12:38:52

Nuggets get Devin Harris and Tyson Chandler
-Get 2 veterans to help playoff push and saves a lot of future money

Mavs get Dragan Bender and Mason Plumlee

06 Feb 2018 00:35:15

Clippers get lottery protected 1st & Emmanuel Mudiay

Nuggets get Lou Williams

06 Feb 2018 01:31:51
Decent for both.

05 Feb 2018 01:02:33
Nuggets trade: Mudiay, Chandler, 2018 Lottery protected first

Cavs trade: Thomas, Shumpert

05 Feb 2018 04:08:10
A 1st is too much. Thomas' value is low until he starts scoring like he did in BOS. I wouldn't do it straight up with no picks if I were DEN.

04 Feb 2018 18:21:18
Portland: fournier+ Millsap+ 2rnd pick Denver+ 2rnd pick Orlando

Orlando: McCollum

Denver: Isaac+Turner

04 Feb 2018 18:39:24
big no from portland, they should be getting at least a first, or maybe isaac. and offloading turner is nice, but taking a chance on millsap at 30 mil next year in his age 34 season isn't that enticing.
if portland moves either dame or cj its going to be for potential stars and firsts, if they can't get that they are better off holding.

04 Feb 2018 17:15:05
Cavs trades to blow the roster up

Cavs get - Hill, Murray and Chandler

Kings get - Frye Shumpert and Cavs 2nd

Nuggets get - Thomas(s&t) and Crowder

Cavs get - Jordan

Hornets get - Bkl 1st, Jr Smith, and Korver


04 Feb 2018 18:40:56
u mean LA in the second deal or is MJ coming to cleveland to play center?

04 Feb 2018 05:32:21
Clippers, Blazers, Nuggets

Clippers get Kenneth Faried, and Wilson Chandler

Blazers get Deandre Jordan, Emmanuel Mudiay, and nuggets first round 2018 pick

Nuggets get Damian Lillard, and Ed Davis

04 Feb 2018 15:43:35
That’s a horrible return for Lillard. Take out Mudiay, and add in harris and Murray. I still think Portland doesn’t do it, but it’s close.

04 Feb 2018 16:47:20
Clippers want to get rid of salary, not add on salary. And Denver can't get Lillard without giving up J. Muarry or Jokic.

03 Feb 2018 17:54:33
I'm confused. Noah is a leader, so why isolate him to make value worth less. Hornicek, u can't play fast with 2 bigs. Spurs play at their pace and can beat anybody. Stop trying to make former players into head coaches. I think Knicks need to New gm and president. Defense wins championship. Bring back van gundy.

Jazz get younger healthier more offensive minded. Rubio will find Kanter and Porzingis great shots. Wings spread off.

Nuggets loaded with PF and milsap will not play hurt for a losing team.

Utah get Porzingis Kanter Hardaway Hernangomez Hornicek
Nuggets get Favors J.Johnson Baker
Knicks get Gobert Milsap Mitchell McCee Jefferson Jazz 2nd


Off season
Noah Thomas top 10 pick to Dallas for Dallas 2nd. Cuban would be intrigued. Beasley resign mid level after signing a superstar. O'Quinn opts in and signs extension. Give ny 25 mil in cap space

You add LeBron 4yr 140mil to this frontcourt and you can talk about best defensive team in nba.


03 Feb 2018 18:43:56
You're not getting 3 stars for Porzingas. He has a ton of value, but not nearly enough for Utah to give up that much and the Nuggets aren't giving up Millsapp for capspace alone.

Also, while you could consider Noah a leader in Chicago (more of a Draymond Green style push the envelope type leader), he's now just an opinionated malcontent that probably doesn't have the talent to play in the NBA any more, who makes to much money and actively tried to fight his coach. The guy is almost unmovable, If the Knicks aren't willing to part with this years first and I'm not even sure that the first alone would be enough to move him.

03 Feb 2018 20:22:09
Hornacek sucks.

03 Feb 2018 20:24:00
Jazz fans have been demanding all season that the team trade all its best players to the Knicks for 20 cents on the dollar. This is their chance!

04 Feb 2018 21:57:01
Probably one of the worst trades I have ever seen! Jazz do not want Kanter back! No way we are giving up Mitchell and Gobert! Oh and sorry to break your heart but Lebron is not going to sign with the Knicks. Ownership/ Management is just as bad as it is right now with the cavs.

02 Feb 2018 23:02:10

Suns get Emmanuel Mudiay and a 2nd rd pick (via Nuggets)

Nuggets get Devin Harris and Nerlens Noel

Mavs get Dragan Bender and Kenneth Faried.

02 Feb 2018 08:14:32

Pacers get K. Faried
Nuggets get A. Jefferson + TJ. Leaf

06 Feb 2018 02:20:08
Hell no! Faried is a back-up at best, to soon to give up on Leaf for that. I also believe you can only trade Al if it’s part of a deal that bring back a starting SF/ PG. He has worked his ass off and never complains about PT. Having great vets on team for chemistry and to teach younger guys Is priceless. Sports are 90% mental, we all love talent and stats but something’s are more important. Remember the Granger trade? Sometimes a guy deserves better, and nobody like seeing a buddy get a raw deal.

02 Feb 2018 03:44:59

Nuggets get:

- Kemba Walker
- Micheal Carter-Williams

Hornets get:

- Jamal Murray
- Wilson Chandler
- Lottery Protected 2018 Nuggets 1st Round

- The Nuggets should do this deal because they get Kemba Walker.

02 Feb 2018 03:52:49
With Kemba running the point and Jokic and Millsap down low, the Nuggets would obtain an explosive and intriguing offense and future.

- With Jamal Murray, the Hornets start their rebuild with a a solid building block. Plus they would recieve a first round pick.

02 Feb 2018 03:56:05
Now seeing the future lineup, I would put Kenneth Faried in Wilson Chandler's spot because of the lack of wings the Nuggets have.

Either way, Chandler or Faried were thrown into the deal for financial reasons, so Charlotte should be able to sell them cheap in the offseason or easily pay Faried or Chandler's salary in their rebuild.

02 Feb 2018 13:54:08
tubbsj, I love how you keep responding to your own post.

02 Feb 2018 02:05:59
Nuggets Receive- Julius Randle-4 M, Jordan Clarkson-11.6 M

The Nuggets get a great, young power forward in Julius Randle who can be a good backup for when Paul Millsap returns and his eventual successor.

Lakers Receive- Gary Harris-2.6 M, Kenneth Faried-13 M

I know the Lakers want to dumb salary in this trade. They do get rid of Clarkson and Deng, but are forced to bring in Faried's contract. The good thing is that it isn't overly expensive and it is only for 2 years. The Lakers don't have their pick this year so they are trying to win as many games as possible. It might not make a massive difference but Kenneth Faried can help their team win.

Suns Receive- Luol Deng-17 M, Emmanuel Mudiay 3.5 M, Lakers 2019 second round pick

The Suns do have to bring in Deng's hideous contract, but it fits with their timeline. dang will be gone in 3 years and most of Phoenix's young talent is locked up for multiple years. They also won't be attracting marquee free Agents. Emmanuel Mudiay could be a potential fit at point guard due to his defensive ability and athleticism. Him and Booker in the backcourt could make for a nice dynamic duo.


4-Randle Millsap (when he returns)


02 Feb 2018 02:47:29
PHX doesn't need Mudiay. Faried isn't shedding salary for LAL. DEN has Lyles, and Milsap, why Randle? DEN loses its best wing defender, and PHX isn't sending out salary, and are taking on Deng, so how could this happen?

02 Feb 2018 05:31:24
Phoenix isn't taking on dengs contract for mudiay. The gm already said they're going to be aggressive this offseason, and that won't happen if they have deng.

28 Jan 2018 20:50:54
Kemba Walker to Denver in exchange for Emanuel Mudiay,Malik Beasley,Jain hernagomez,Darrell Arthur,2018 1st ,2020 2nd

29 Jan 2018 03:16:22
I like this trade for both teams. But I think the Hornets are after either a salary dump or an all star in a Walker trade.

28 Jan 2018 09:47:11
Hawks get Kanter Johnson Booker Ntilikina 3 Sixers 2nd NY 1st
Sixers get Bazemore Beasley Noah Hernangomez
Knicks get Schroder Plumlee Dedmon Faried Arthur Jefferson
Nuggets get Bayless McDermott 2 NY 2nd

Nuggets dump 2 of 6 PF on roster save money


Knicks desperate for PG and better defensive players. They use all asset, picks and exp contracts to get what need and dump Noah


Sixers add need bench scoring ins. For Reddick


Hawks dump salary with 80 mil space next yr add picks


28 Jan 2018 17:49:53
Hard pass from Sixers. No way do they take on Noahs contract and destroy their cap space for" bench scoring insurance ". Just a terrible business move no matter what angle you look at it from.

28 Jan 2018 01:22:51
Hawks trade - Schroder and Belinelli

Nuggets trade - Mudiay, Hernangomez, Beasley, and Faried (future pick if needed)

Hawks get 3 young prospects to devolop and give more playing time

Nuggets get a pure PG they desperately need w/o giving up much as it would it get Walker more than likely



26 Jan 2018 23:53:47
Nba offseason singing predictions

Derrick Rose to indiana for 1yr 17 million

Lebron back to cle

Pg13 to cle

Cp3 to Denver

27 Jan 2018 00:08:30
Didn't know Rose had that good of a voice! Must be some pipes on that guy!

27 Jan 2018 05:22:10
curious why u think cp3 would go to his 3rd team in 3 years, what does denver offer over houston?
also, assuming pg to cleveland occurs via s+t (that would have to be the case for it to be possible) . that potential return would be quite interesting for okc moving forward.
