Nuggets: Julius Randle, Ian Clark
Pelicans: Markieff Morris, John Wall, +1rnd pick Denver 23
Wizards: Mason Plumlee, Solomon Hill,+ +1rnd pick Denver 21, +2rnd pick Pelicans 19

07 Dec 2018 17:22:52
Wizards say no.

03 Dec 2018 18:14:56
Charlotte: J Wall+ 1rnd pick Denver 19 and 21

Was: P Millsap+ MKG

Denver: K Walker+ O Porter

03 Dec 2018 19:02:53
Denver’s 2019 first is going to Brooklyn from the Faried/ salary dump trade.

03 Dec 2018 16:19:42

CELTICS - O. Porter Jr, Oubre Jr
WIZARDS - Millsap, Rosier, Beasley
NUGGETS - Hayward

CELTICS - Porter helps an already robust defense and Oubre becomes a nice piece off the bench. Porter Jr's contract is high but arguably looks better than Haywards with his rough start.

WIZARDS - Millsap is still a useful piece and his contract has a team option for next year. This wouldn't be simply a salary dump though as the Wizards would also get a potential Wall replacement in Rozier. They'd need to have a taker for Wall (wink/ wink Phoenix) . Beasley was buried a bit in Denver but he's still on his rookie deal and could blossom with a new start. So Wizards get future salary relief, potential cheaper Wall replacement, and a flyer on a young dude.

NUGGETS - Obviously Denver would be betting that Hayward would do better in a different environment and they do have a need at SF even with a healthy Barton. Lyles, Plumlee, and Hernangomez can soak up Millsap's minutes. Denver has shown they want to be in the mix for big name stars (ie. rumors regarding potential Butler, George, and Love trades) but have yet to be able to attract any via free agency - Millsap being the exception. Trading is the only way they get it done. However, with Denver currently sitting at #1 in the west, hard to see them messing with the sauce right now. A fun idea nonetheless.

03 Dec 2018 16:39:27
I don't think the nuggets need a SF with a healthy Barton that costs 31mil. Millsap is playing great for them, and will re-sign for less likely. Celtics should trade Hayward after the season. Hopefully he puts his game back together by then. Consistently.

03 Dec 2018 16:56:55
The two players Boston gives up are both better than either player it gets in return. Hard no from Ainge on this one.

03 Dec 2018 18:33:43
Agree with Supercollider this time.

03 Dec 2018 08:31:28

PG Murray/Morris/Thomas
SG Beasley/Barton/Jackson
SF Hernangomez/Miller/Hill
PF Davis/Lyles/Lydon
Ce Whiteside/Plumlee/Welsh

*Pelicans get: Nikola Jokic, Michael Porter Jr., Gary Harris, Rodney McGruder, Torrey Craig, 2021 1st (From DEN), 2021 2nd (From MIA)
PG Holiday/Frazier/Payton
SG Harris/Moore/Clark

SF Richardson/Winslow/Jones
PF Millsap/J. Johnson/Vanderbilt
Ce Adebayo/Olynk/Haslem

03 Dec 2018 07:41:18
*Nuggets get: Bradley Beal, Markieff Morris, Kelly Oubre Jr., Markelle Fultz, Okaro White, 2021 2nd (via DET, from PHI)
PG Murray/Thomas/Fultz
SG Beal/Beasley/Barton
SF Oubre Jr./Craig/Porter Jr.
PF Morris/Lyles/Lydon/White
Ce Jokic/Plumlee
- Add needed star power and versatile wing. Also get former No. 1 Pick who could develop with no rush, and solid replacement for Millsap, who was being overpaid. White is just a throw-in to make the trade work salary wise.

*Wizards get: Paul Millsap, Gary Harris, Monte Morris, Jarred Vanderbilt, 2021 1st (From DEN), 2019 2nd (via CHI, from PHI), 2023 2nd (From DEN), 2023 2nd (via DET, from PHI)
PG Wall/Rivers/Morris
SG Harris/Satoransky/Brown Jr.
SF Porter/Green/Robinson
PF Millsap/Smith/Vanderbilt
Ce Howard/Mahinmi/Bryant
- Make first trade for roster shake-up since Wall and Porter are difficult to trade. Get a young, two way Guard for Beal and solid replacement for Morris. Get a solid backup point guard in Morris, and plenty of assets. Also clear up some cap space.

*Sixers get: Juan Hernangomez
PG Simmons/McConnell
SG Redick/Shamet/Smith
SF Butler/Chandler/Korkmaz
PF Hernangomez/Muscala/Bolden
Ce Embiid/Johnson/Patton
- Get a needed stretch four after losing Saric. Although giving up a lot of seconds, it is necessary since they have way too many over the next couple years; and roster spots are scarce for that many picks including the first rounders. Although selling Fultz low, it is a solid deal as it helps with their odds of winning now instead of waiting and possibly getting a worse deal if Fultz continues to get worse as a player.

•Is this a good trade? What changes would you add? (Ik it's huge trade, but a trade I think each team should consider)

Philly and Cavs after January 15

Philadelphia receives

Cleveland receives
2019 secound round pick(from Chicago)
2020 second round pick(from Denver)
2021 second round pick (from Detroit)
2022 second round pick (from Philadelphia)

Philadelphia does this to add the firepower of Love which would make them pretty much a threat at every position. Love knows how to play well with other all stars and doesn't mind taking the back seat so he would fit well with Philly now I believe. Also the 76ers have 9 secound rounders currently for the next 3 years so although it may seem like an oversell. Philly couldn't possibly use all 9 secound rounders in the next three years. Add 4 first to that (1 in 19,1 in 20, 2 in 21) which makes the second expandable and Cavs could use picks.

Cavs do this in order to add the picks mainly. 4 second helps the current pick situation. Cavs don't have any extra picks besides what they acquired through the Korver Trade. Fultz and Korkmaz get their fresh start and of course Chandler is expiring.

29 Nov 2018 02:04:43
Just curious, which team are you a fan of?

29 Nov 2018 02:26:01
Ask anyone on here. Cavs are my team and I make it known lol.

29 Nov 2018 09:41:01
Cavs Declined I want Joel Embiid in return.

29 Nov 2018 12:00:37
Joel a top 10 player in the league right now. Why would Philly give him up for a player who is currently injured and not able to carry his team to any wins really. Loves a great role playing big man with all star quality but Joel is a superstar.

Magic Trade 2020 first round pick (protected) 1-20 pick

Denver Trade Michael Porter Jr

Magic can take Porter for rest of season Injuried

Next season he going to play if he starts balling like he done in High School

Can be a Steal for Orlando Magic giving up draft pick

17 Nov 2018 22:39:03
Why would Denver do this for a pick?

18 Nov 2018 00:44:35
Why would Denver do that? He could be a steal for them as well.

18 Nov 2018 01:07:30
I just don’t see why Denver trades him for a pick unless they think he’s permanently damaged goods.

17 Nov 2018 23:28:43
Porter was #15 why would Denver trade a 15 pick for 20+.

16 Nov 2018 22:07:47
Wiz - Harris, Morris, Vanderbilt, & future protected pick

Nuggets - Wall & Green



17 Nov 2018 03:15:40
I think the nuggets value Harris similar to how the Wiz value Beal. It would be hard to pry Harris outta Denver.

17 Nov 2018 12:17:07
Harris is better, younger, cheaper than Wall. Green is very inconsistent.

14 Nov 2018 16:20:53
Rockets trade - Melo

Nuggets trade - Lydon



14 Nov 2018 19:10:55
Why? Nuggets don't need him and rockets will cut him soon.

06 Nov 2018 19:47:25
Durant to the Knicks

Silver, NBA, Kleiman, Roc Nation, Nike would all love for KD to go to the Knicks to maximize the growth of his brand, to make NY basketball relevant and to make the NBA competitive again.

Knicks are better than people give them credit for; they have a good coach in Fizdale and have drafted well recently, Porzingis (excellent pick), Knox, Ntilikina and Mitchell Robinson (all good picks).

The Knicks are also likely to get a top 5-10 pick in next year's draft that is loaded with top talent.
They should be looking to get a better PG than they have and the options are good.

Kyrie is the best case scenario, Kyrie is likely to return to the Celtics but if he leaves, his only other destination will be the Knicks, KD joining NY should tempt him to ditch the Celtics. But if Kyrie stays then the Knicks should have a very good chance to sign Terry Rozier as it is unlikely the Celtics keep both. Kemba Walker is a NY native and is very underrated, his playing like a top tier PG so far this season.

Potential Lineup:
PG - Kyrie or Rozier or Kemba
SG - Ntilikina
SF - Durant/Knox
PF - Porzingis
C - Robinson

This team would instantly be a contender in the East, and would be terrifying defensively with the length of Ntilikina, Durant, Porzingis and Robinson. Knicks can fill out their bench by adding vets on low contracts as well as their draft pick and keeping anyone who plays well this year.
The NBA would be very competitive in this scenario: the East would have at least 6 contenders Celtics, Knicks, Sixers, Bucks, Nets, Raptors (if Kawhi stays).
If Durant leaves GSW, the West would have almost all 15 teams contending for the playoffs and nearly 10 teams will feel like they can win the conference: (Warriors, Rockets, Lakers, Jazz, Nuggets, Pelicans, Blazers, Spurs, Clippers, Thunder).

Other moves that would be great for the NBA are:
- Kawhi to the Clippers
- Butler and Boogie to the Nets
- Kyrie to stay with the Celtics
- Rozier to the Suns

What are your thoughts? Does anyone else have any other scenarios that would add competitive balance to the league?

06 Nov 2018 20:19:11
Fizdale isn't a good coach.

06 Nov 2018 22:56:55
I think the Knicks should go easy with their cap. Porzingis is going to eat up 30 million probably this summer. By the time their '19 pick and Knox have a couple seasons under their belts maybe then the knicks will be in the market for the best player in the NBA in the off season. A lottery team adding the best player in the NBA the following season is probably pretty rare too.

07 Nov 2018 00:24:02
Im not sure if Fizdale good or bad coach. But if Knicks want Durant he probably want fizdale around and moving Hardaway Lee for expiring contract is vital, Thomas get 1.5 mil early term buyout. Give Durant 40 mil per yr. Rozier 20. Vonleh mle

Trade Knox for Langford 2 2nd

Rozier/ Ntilikina/ vet
Trier/ Langford/ Caleb Martin-pickup
Durant/ Dotson/ Cody Martin-2nd
Williamson/ Vonleh/ vet
Porzingis/ Robinson/ Blitadze-2nd.

07 Nov 2018 01:24:03
Lakers, Cavs both did it recently.

07 Nov 2018 01:38:39
Lakers and LBJ was rare.

07 Nov 2018 02:02:48
Btec they plan on signing free agents 1st than resigning Porzingis. The richest team in nba does care about luxury taxes if they win.

07 Nov 2018 14:38:17
I'd be surprised if the knicks could land Rozier. He would be about where I was aiming If I had cap to spend. It's a position the knicks need for a guy they could overpay a little to get that has upside still.

07 Nov 2018 14:47:07
Shiller 41 Maybe the CAVS did 5 years ago, maybe, but Durant is a warrior? Lakers?

04 Nov 2018 00:44:33
Cavs Hornets

Cavs receive
2019 Philly second round pick
2021 second round pick via Denver

Philadelphia receives

04 Nov 2018 06:47:54
Don’t touch Smith, Korver is a good fit.

04 Nov 2018 13:45:48
While I don’t see Jr as a guy not worth a flyer by a good team, I’d rather have Chandler, if I’m the 6ers. He gives them another body that can be thrown at guys like Giannis and Durant. He isn’t a great defender, but atleast he has the length to where they can’t just shoot overtop of him and probably enough athleticism that they won’t just blow straight past him.

04 Nov 2018 15:31:49
Wilson chandler is better when healthy.

24 Oct 2018 06:04:05
Bulls trade nuggets

Nuggets get holiday and 2nd round pick

Bulls get Isaiah thomas

24 Oct 2018 13:49:28
I doubt the bulls would trade for an injured or recovering from injury player with Dunn, and Markannen already out for the same reason.

24 Oct 2018 19:40:41
They’re tanking.

06 Oct 2018 03:09:01
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

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?
