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.

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.

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

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.

12 Jul 2018 22:44:10

Bucks - Plumlee, Bembry
Nuggets - Dellavadova, Maker
Hawks - Faried (exp), Arthur (exp), 2019 Denver 1st

Bucks get a better starting Center.

Nuggets shed a lot of cap space, get a veteran backup PG, and take a flyer on Maker.

Hawks get a first and expirings for the low price of Bembry.

12 Jul 2018 23:56:37
The bucks Just signed Lopez so it's not a better starting center and they give up maker.

13 Jul 2018 12:45:37
Lmao 😂 😂.

12 Jul 2018 14:41:33
Knicks get Faried Authur Johnson Abrines
Nuggets get Beverly Teodosic Lee
Thunder get Hardaway Gallinari
Clippers get Melo Thomas

Clippers clears more cap for next yr


Thunders make themselves a clear top 3 in west


Nuggets add needed pg depth while clearing the cluster at pf


Knicks cut 37 mil in 2019


12 Jul 2018 15:53:40
I love this for the Clippers and the Knicks

Not sure about OKC, it a good move if Gallinari can stay healty, but this cost them a lot.

12 Jul 2018 16:40:42
I agree with you said about gallinari but land him and hardaway at cost melo and Abrines, it huge winner at very little risk for okc. With good insurance behind gallo, patterson and grant are solid fill in.

12 Jul 2018 19:09:11
Shizzee, but would they value either of those guys at the price point they would have to pay? Not only do they have to pay their bloated contract, but they have to pay a ton of luxury tax as well. It doesn't seem worth it.

12 Jul 2018 23:14:01
Nugs say heck yes.

12 Jul 2018 23:22:33
Thunder give up and expiring and young players for two bad contracts.

13 Jul 2018 05:26:59
Hardaway 26 3 yrs left and Gallinari 29 2 yrs left. 2 players in there prime stretch the offense with 3 other starting players in their prime. Melo is not get u better talent without picks. Hardaway and Gallinari is best you can get. Best shooters available beside R. Anderson and Fournier. Gallo and timmy are better. OKC in luxury regardless.

13 Jul 2018 12:34:23
Gallo and THJ are negative value. They're owed nearly 100M. Gallo can't stay on the court and THJ just isn't that good. I'd buy Melo out before doing this.

12 Jul 2018 10:32:52

Denver: Smart 2y 28M

Boston: Farried+ 2rnd pick Denver

12 Jul 2018 13:35:12
Celtics have no interest in faried. Chandler cost a 2nd to dump and a pick swap. Faried is going to cost more than a 2nd to move.

12 Jul 2018 14:07:04
Farried would be good, playing next to Horford and he's only on a one year contract, so it's a low risk when it fails. And Boston get an extra asset.

Smart is better then Farried, but Boston already has Hayward, Tatum and J Brown. And Boston can use a rebounder. And they don't have many options to get a PF, without trading Tatum or Brown.

11 Jul 2018 14:00:32
Wizards - Millsap, Beasley, 2019 2nd
Nuggets - Porter Jr.

Wizards do this because porter + Beal + wall gets super expensive starting next year and millsap has a team option for next year. The wizards could decline and save 30 mil. They also get a prospect and a pick to boot. Millsap also keeps them competitive next year.

Nuggets do this because they have weakness at sf, porter adds D, and he fits more with their timeline than millsap. They'd also have to be confident with lyles starting at PF. Danger for denver is the length of porter jrs deal. In 20/21 his player option year worth 28.5 mil, there may be a better Porter Jr playing his position in Denver still on his rookie deal, lol.

11 Jul 2018 14:36:40
The Wizards would pass. Porter's big deal has him super underrated at this point. The guy is a really good 2 way player. He's an elite 3 and d player that can create and finish when given the chance. Plus, he's still 24. He makes less than Millsapp and had a much better year. Plus, the Wizards have done well in improving their bench this off season. It should be pretty solid this year. They don't really need Beasley. Lawson, Satoransky, Rivers, Brown, Oubre, Green, and Mahimi is a pretty solid bench with the only place you could possibly want to upgrade being the center spot. Mahimi isn't a guy you would ever want to have in the starting lineup and Howard has his risks.

11 Jul 2018 17:15:22
The nuggets have a mystery player in mpj. Won't need a guy like porter if mpj develops injury free.

11 Jul 2018 17:39:12
I would like to see the Bucks S and T J. Parker to Wash. for O. Porter. That would give them
B. Lopez
Giannis A.
O. Porter
K. Middleton (Moving Middleton back to SG)
E. Bledsoe.


11 Jul 2018 18:56:35
Can't imagine parker salary within league trading rules of porters 25 mil.

09 Jul 2018 12:35:20
Knicks summer

Lakers get Kanter Burke Baker
Knicks get Chandler Deng Dudley
Suns get Ball Noah

Nuggets get Lee Thomas
Bulls get Faried Arthur Deng
Knicks get Mathews Lopez Asik Barea
Mavs get Hardaway Felicio


09 Jul 2018 01:39:20

Bulls - Plumlee, Arthur (exp), Beasley, 2019 2nd
Nuggets - R. Lopez (exp), Payne (exp)

Bulls take on salary but get a pick and a prospect in Beasley. Plumlee also fits in nicely.

Nuggets dump salary and get off of that extra year of Plumlee's contract. In the short term, Lopez backs up Jokic and Payne subs for Murray.

09 Jul 2018 02:46:26
From a bulls perspective this is a good play. Nuggets were already willing to go over the cap and plumlee fits with jokic nicely.

08 Jul 2018 17:57:53

Cavs - Faried, 2019 1st, future 2nd
Nugs - Korver

Cavs gain draft capital for a non-essential asset. Nugs shed a little salary and gain an excellent shooter on an affordable deal to spell Harris.

08 Jul 2018 18:54:42
It'd be great for the Cavs and a little bit of an over pay for the Nuggets, but the Cavs don't have the cap space to take one Faried. They'd need to add like 3 millionish to the trade.

09 Jul 2018 02:58:11
Nuggets definitely have more appealing options.

06 Jul 2018 10:54:01
Wolves - Knicks

Butler, Dieng for Knox, Ntilikina, Lee, Noah

Wolves - Nuggets

Teague for Faried, Arthur

Jones, Rose
Ntilikina, Okogie
Wiggins, Lee
Knox, Faried, Arthur
Towns, Gibson, Noah

Hopefully fire Thibs and hire a younger coach that could grow with this team

07 Jul 2018 01:53:32
Tyler wow, wiggens and town overated 1 way players. Butler is foundation 2nd the coach.

04 Jul 2018 06:09:38
Cavs Bucks

Cavs receives
2nd from Denver in 2019
2021 bucks first round pick

Bucks receive

04 Jul 2018 06:28:33
Middleton is better than love by himself.

04 Jul 2018 12:11:07
Giannis and Middleton are pretty much untouchable, Plus, As "thrillhouse84" stated, Middleton is better and worth more than Love by himself. I don't believe anyone is interested in trading for Love.

04 Jul 2018 03:10:56
Knicks summer moves
Faried Arthur for Lee Thomas 2020 2nd

cuts nuggets luxury taxes to 8 mil.

Hardaway 2019 2nd for Mathews

1st 1/2

Asik for Noah NY 2020 1st

2nd 1/2

03 Jul 2018 04:32:46
Cavs Denver

Cavs receive

Denver receives

03 Jul 2018 13:09:46
Denver is taking more salary back, their over luxury, trade does not work.

02 Jul 2018 16:48:40

DEN- Kawhi Leonard
SA- Gary Harris, Micheal Porter Jr. Wilson Chandler, 2020 and 2022 1st (unprotected)

C- Nikola Jokic
PF- Paul Milsap
SF- Kawhi Leonard
SG- Will Barton
PG- Jamal Murray

Denver has a very sneaky good roster. A player like Kawhi could put them in contention.

02 Jul 2018 17:14:13
Way too much to give up for a flight risk. Plus, on any team besides the Lakers Leonard will be playing all of 2018-19 to just not get hurt. That unsigned max deal with the Lakers will be weighing him down all season.

02 Jul 2018 17:33:35
Super- like PG?

02 Jul 2018 17:53:10
worth the risk, this team could give the west hell, championship isn't out of the question. but if he still leaves next summer, giving up on mpj would hurt, especially if he comes close to reaching his potential.
and i think spurs would want jamal murray too.
