Andre Drummond, 1st round pick 2020

Jrue Holiday

20 Feb 2019 20:51:00
Pels giggle then hang up.

19 Feb 2019 16:43:48
Ian Mahinmi
D. Howard
Wall injury exception-18.5

2020 1st lottery protected for 2 years

19 Feb 2019 17:05:55
Why for Detroit?

19 Feb 2019 17:20:11
Why not?

19 Feb 2019 20:54:24
That first is going the wrong way. Drummond has value, yet you're giving away him and a first to unload Jackson?

19 Feb 2019 21:53:15
That first is going in the wrong direction indeed.

Maybe if Washington gives their 2019 unprotected pick.

19 Feb 2019 22:35:04
Drummond/ jackson are overpaid. Obviously this allows Detroit to reposition after their attempt at the playoffs. Capella is better than Drummond, just signed a contract for 10 less a season. Whiteside is better than Drummond and gets ridiculed all the time. B. Lopez is better than Drummond.

20 Feb 2019 00:50:23
Yeah and Walls contract is overpaid as well for more years and won’t play next year at all. Mahinmi is always on the books for next year at 15mil and a backup. At least Drummond and Jackson start and will be available to play.

20 Feb 2019 04:28:31
Wall's contract? Wall's injury exception, not John Wall the player. It's half his salary for next season, good for a year, not tax free. Wall is not in the trade.

17 Feb 2019 19:20:05
After Harrison Barnes opts into his final year.

Kings trade Harrison Barnes + 2020 2nd rounder (either Miami or Detroit)

Minnesota trades Georgi Dieng and Robert Covington.

17 Feb 2019 20:38:23
Why would Minnesota do that?

17 Feb 2019 21:49:33
Frees themselves out of a ton of future salary.

18 Feb 2019 03:30:44
A ton of future salary? Covington plays way better than his money. And Dieng is only making $8 million more total for 2 years over Barnes' 1 year.

16 Feb 2019 19:21:15
Det - Conley

Mem - Jackson Leuer and Det 1st

Mem draft Culver and Bol Bol

Valanciunas/Bol Bol

12 Feb 2019 11:29:03
drainer #2,

Mavs Summer moves
Hardaway for Fournier
Powell Brunson for Ilyasova Connaughton Devincenzo
Jackson for Kennard det 2nd
Lee det 2nd for Delavedova Osman

2019 Mavs Country Roster
Delavedova/Devincenzo/M.Morgan-43 Fournier/Kennard/Connaughton

DEF PPG is 150 🤣

12 Feb 2019 20:40:27
Why would Detroit or Cleveland do those trades?
Same with Orlando.

12 Feb 2019 20:52:52
Carl: He's mocking ddrainer (which is ironic, because shizzee is just as much of a homer as ddrainer. )

08 Feb 2019 22:13:25
Robin Lopez would propably join Mavs after buyout in Chicago.

Since the Mavs have their two francise players I do not see a "big fish" go to Dallas and there is NY, LA, Boston with heagy assets looking for ...

So the Mavs will use their CAP and the amazing Tradeexception to trade for PG and C end of june to get the bird rights and to resign them.

At PG Mavs will go for Walker, Rubio or I would like a offer for Chris Dunn. He can still not run the show in Chicago but would be a great sidekick to Doncie SG, he can play, score and defend!

- Burke, 2x2nd
- Dunn

The Center will probably be Vucevic or Orland want to keep him in this case Bamba, but I think they will go with the young guy.

- 2nd
- Vucevic

Maybe there is a possibility to go for Middleton? If not go with Hardaway, Finney-Smith

Vucevic, Powell
Prozingis, Kleber
Finney-Smith, Hardaway
Doncic, Lee
Dunn, Brunson

Maybe Detroit wants to send out Drummond for a future 1st? I like the kid and the power of presence in the middle, would be a younger case than Vucevic, but I think Vucevic fits better as a shooter that can still heavy rebound.

09 Feb 2019 00:17:53
Lopez will go to Raps or GSW. Same for Jordan. He won't want to be in NY, unless they are promising to pay him well next season.

09 Feb 2019 02:06:39
DJ seems pretty happy in NY jorga, don’t think he wants out. Knicks also like having him around as a mentor for Robinson, and he’s been more than willing to do it.

09 Feb 2019 04:03:03
Having two franchise players on rookie contracts should abtract free agents to join them. Dallas need a wing like Leonard and a center like cousins. Doncic lee Leonard zinger cousins with hardway 6th man.

09 Feb 2019 04:21:22
Porzingis will not be on his rookie deal.

09 Feb 2019 04:55:43
He accepted his qualifier for next yr.

09 Feb 2019 13:06:02
No he hasn’t shizzee, he said he is considering it.

09 Feb 2019 18:38:20
Unicorn fame getting his head smh.

09 Feb 2019 23:58:50
Triangle, I heard NY liked the mentor idea, but I haven't heard from D. J. 28 days until waiving is off the table, and I don't count a lot of contenders with starting roles available. It's the long period in between where the rubber hits the road. Injury could change things quickly on a contender.

10 Feb 2019 05:56:02
A 12 mil cap hold and a second year rookie with superstar potential making 7 mil is what you could build your team around easily.

10 Feb 2019 14:14:45
Also, just read that you cannot trade for players with expiring deals like vucevic between the trade deadline and the start of the new season/ free agency.

07 Feb 2019 18:20:06
The Milwaukee Bucks just traded seldom used C Jason Smith, and newly acquired SF Stanley Johnson (From the Detroit Pistons for Thon Maker) to the NOP for F/C Nikola Mirotic. Milwaukee has been looking for more wing help. They surely can use Mirotic's 3 point shooting!

07 Feb 2019 19:09:44
Great fit I wonder if they’ll bring him as a 6th man or move move Middleton to SG and Giannis to SF and start Mirotic.

07 Feb 2019 20:32:08
That sounds like a plan! Plus what if Milwaukee were to sign Melo Anthony for the rest of the year? They do have 1 roster opening!


07 Feb 2019 22:41:07
Major upgrade over Henson/ Maker.

09 Feb 2019 06:59:54
Think Melo is a lost cause. put him in the Wade-Dirk vet group.

09 Feb 2019 22:31:00
@ Fredman, I think you're right. It was just a thought. But, The Bucks do have a roster spot open. So, ?


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.

06 Feb 2019 18:33:22
Bucks trade 2016 1st rd #10 pick 7'1" PF/C Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons.

The Pistons trade 2015 1st rd #8 Pick 6'7" SF/SG Stanley Johnson to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Great for both teams.

06 Feb 2019 18:47:23
It seems fairly insignificant for both teams.

06 Feb 2019 18:57:48
Hi rkeene, Actually, Its helps both teams. The Bucks needed another wing, The Pistons needed another big man. Both get what they wanted. And just a fyi. Its not always about the Lakers, Knicks, NOP. etc. Other teams also play in the NBA.
Enjoy your day!

06 Feb 2019 19:15:30
Neither helps outside of practice.

06 Feb 2019 19:22:37
@Shiller41, Practice? you talking about Practice? Practice? Its just Practice!
Bottom line, It could have been worse, Both Johnson and Maker could have ended up in Cleveland! At 11-and 43 and 29 games out of 1st place.
Ask Rodney Hood how it feels to actually get "Paroled" out of Cleveland.
Then ask M. Dellavedova, and J. Henson, how it feels to be "Sentenced" to the Cavs from 1st place Milwaukee?

06 Feb 2019 21:13:58
Yea both needed a change of scenery, both could be very good players for their new teams.

04 Feb 2019 09:32:27
Hornets - Pistons

Pistons get Miles Bridges, Malik Monk, Frank Kaminsky, Bismack Biyombo (contract) and Cha 2019, 2021 and 2023 1st

Hornets get Blake Griffin

04 Feb 2019 10:30:13
The picks are moving the wrong way.

04 Feb 2019 11:30:58
Detroit is getting way more for Griffin than they gave up to get him.

04 Feb 2019 14:08:42
I was thinking no picks needed.

04 Feb 2019 17:53:21
Maybe Biz, Marvin and a first for Griffin. But we can't give up our young talent plus take on that huge contract.

05 Feb 2019 09:23:28
If hornets keep walker maybe this would work but not that baby picks.

03 Feb 2019 17:57:54
76ers get - Bullock, Robinson III, and Pachulia

- Gets depth and shooting

Pistons get - Fultz and Korkmaz

- Trades exp contracts for 2 young players. One with all star potential if they can help him get fully healthy


03 Feb 2019 20:06:00
Probably need some picks coming from philly but I like it.

04 Feb 2019 21:00:22
I like it for both.

01 Feb 2019 15:42:02
PHI - DET trade

76ers are looking for depth in SF/PF positions who can shoot and especially defend

Pistons looking towards future

PHI - M. Fultz, M. Muscala, 2020 second

DET - J. Leur and G. Robinson III

Philly gets solid shooters and defenders who can immediately play in rotation without giving up much production, Detroit gets a high potential young player, expiring contract, and late pick.

01 Feb 2019 22:52:00
Not even mentioning the idea of getting a 20 year old 1st overall pick for 2 d-leaguers, the funniest part of this is that you added the 2nd round pick from philly like somehow detroit still might have been giving up too much.


31 Jan 2019 16:21:08
Mavs would have used their CAP and the 1st picks for 19 and 21 but would have a young, fast team with talent to become a playoff team and to go Forward from there in the next 3 years. And to be fair to get Drummond and Wiggins or one of them would be a good move. But I think Detroit and Minnesota need to some changes because they are stuck as discussed.

As described in the proposales before the mainmain moves would with some others asset to make it happen would be:

- Drummond, Wiggins

- 2 x st and McLemore and 40m CAP

- Jordan and Bazemore and CAP

- CAP and the 1st 2019 unprotected

- Barnes

Mavs roster would promise some nice games and to become a good Playoff Team to see how to look for more:

Drummond, Dieng
Prince, Leuer/Kleber
Wiggins, Finney-Smith
Doncic, Harris
Smith, Brunson

31 Jan 2019 17:16:43
That team is horrible defensively. Prince is their best defender.

31 Jan 2019 18:55:41
So its basically Jordan and Barnes for Drummond and Wiggins. With Drummond>Jordan and Wiggins>Barnes, Dallas is going to have to come with more than just that.

FYI. Kings want no part of Barnes anyways.

31 Jan 2019 22:54:41
Kings will welcome Barnes. Dude y you act like the kings just can sign anyone. Bazemore hardaway Barnes porter would be great especially just giving expiring contracts for them. Like really who the kings going to sign. With one those players they can be 7th seed.

31 Jan 2019 23:24:36
I never said the Kings would sign a top tier FA with their cap space.

But that does not mean we have to be like the Knicks and sign/ take on "overpaid" talent.

Kings are going to be like they were last season, wait the free agency period out, force teams to use cap space by matching offers on RFAs and then get a starter and top bench player for $10 mil/ year.

Kings win games with pace and depth, not star talent.

01 Feb 2019 04:09:44
Early prediction. After other teams have spent their cap space.

Vucevic 3 yrs $18 mil per
Mirotic 3 years $15 mil per

And Kings would still have arou d $15 mil in cap space to take on salary for draft picks.

31 Jan 2019 16:10:17
Mavs should not bet so much on grade A free agents, there are more traditional places to join for them like LA or NY or to stay on successful Teams.

Which young good player could reach grade A and work out for Mavs in the future? And may the available?

Drummond may available and Detroit is "stuck" midterm and not a Play off Team.

I like the "traditional xenter" to Play "spectacular". Drummond is quick and may learn to shoot if he become "free".

Detroit may clear CAP midterm and need some backcourt scoring. Atlanta what's to rebuild with young players and clear CAP as well.

- Matthews, Spalding and Mavs 1st 2019 without protection (instead top 5 protection)

- Drummond, Leuer, Prince

- Jordan, Bazemore

31 Jan 2019 19:07:46
Jordan doesn't solve the pistons problems only hurts the offense which is there issue.

31 Jan 2019 15:34:37
Pelicans Rebuild (offseason)

NOP- Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, Jaylon Brown, Robert Williams, 2019 SAC pick and 2019 LAC pick

BOS- Anthony Davis

Boston has coveted Davis since it was a possibility he would be available. Tatum took a step back this year, but still shows potential. NO gets 3 very good players, an upside player in Williams, and two picks.

NOP- Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard, 2019 1st

DET- Jrue Holiday

NO gets an expiring contract in Jackson, a good shooter in Kennard and a top 10 pick. DET gets another good player to pair with Blake and Drummond

7 (DET)- Darius Garland, PG
8 (NOP)- Bol Bol, C
12 (SAC)- Sekou Doumbouya, PF
18 (LAC)- Kris Wilkes, SF

Garland and Bol can rotate in 2019 behind Jackson and Randle. Both players contracts expire after the season so Bol and Garland can step into the rotation in 2020. Wilkes and Doumbouya are upside picks that could grow into very good players.

C- Julius Randle/Bol Bol
PF- Robert Williams/Sekou Doumbouya
SF- Jayson Tatum/Kris Wilkes
SG- Jaylon Brown/Luke Kennard
PG- Reggie Jackson/Marcus Smart/Darius Garland

This team has a lot of potential and depth. It could make for a fast turnaround if they hit on these picks. Tatum Brown Smart are all proven players. If Bol and Garland turn out the way they should, this team could easily be a playoff team by 2021.

31 Jan 2019 16:35:47
Pels won't get all that for Davis.
A starter (Tatum), another rotation player and at most two No. 1s.

31 Jan 2019 16:42:38
firt trade i like, second i dislike Jackson is a deal killer, Pels could rebuild around Holiday unless they get a strong deal for him, Farstronger than that.

31 Jan 2019 17:24:17
The first is solid. The deal for Holiday is pretty awful for NOs though. I don’t see the point. I’m more in the blow it up camp, but with what they’re getting the could be competitive fairly soon. Unless they can get good young talent out of Holiday, why do it?

31 Jan 2019 17:35:53
The first trade is too much. You are not getting 3 starters and William's plus both of those pics
I wait until the end of the season to de declare Tatum having taken a step back. There a ton of basketball left, including the playoffs.

31 Jan 2019 19:08:35
Detroit won't do that trade.

29 Jan 2019 10:25:08
Miami: Jackson+ galloway+ Leuer

Detroit: J richardson+ Waiters+ J Johnson

Miami aims for the 2020 free agent market and takns for the 2020 draft.

Detroit get 2 shootingguards

28 Jan 2019 23:55:46
Det - Pels

Det- jrue holiday

Detroit finally gets a true point guard and get rid of reggie j who has been cancer to the team

Pels- reggie jackson, glen robinson, plus 2020 first and 2020 second

Pelicans can rebuild with AD wanting out with a reggie j on a cheaper contract with less years and picks

29 Jan 2019 00:43:38
Pels could get better deal.

29 Jan 2019 01:43:02
He does want to play pg. Lmao what are you talking about.

29 Jan 2019 20:30:29
Why would Detroit give up a lottery pick for an priced guard . To much. Detroit says no.

28 Jan 2019 17:36:34
Detroit Receives: Harrison Barnes and Dennis Smith Jr.

Dallas Receives: Blake Griffin


28 Jan 2019 17:44:33
WHY would Dallas give up 2 younger players for a Blake Griffin?

Might target Aaron Gordon than Blake Griffin.

28 Jan 2019 19:46:15
Great trade. Luka and Griffin are perfect combo.

28 Jan 2019 21:16:58
60 games a year Blake is solid.

29 Jan 2019 20:33:23
Detroit gets Barnes who is having another rough year and an bust no thank you.

27 Jan 2019 15:08:49
Detroit rebuilds

Denver gets: Blake Griffin, Reggie Bullock

Pistons get: Paul Millsap, Trey Lyles, 2021 first

Denver gets an upgrade and tries to compete while Detroit gets an expiring an future pieces.

27 Jan 2019 15:52:47
Milsap > Griffin.

27 Jan 2019 16:04:59
Not sure Blake can be effective with the ball in Jokic's hands. To me, Blake is starting to head down the road already travelled by Carmelo Anthony.

27 Jan 2019 22:21:46
The difference is the ego. Melo couldn’t handle being anything but a #1 superstar. I think Blake can evolve.

02 Feb 2019 03:52:22
Why can't Denver sign KD in summer?

27 Jan 2019 07:20:34

Hornets get Andre Drummond, Glenn Robinson III, and Henry Ellenson

Pistons get Nic Batum, Cody Zeller, Frank Kaminsky, Hornets’ 2019 lottery protected 1st rd pick, and a future 2nd rd pick.
