Let`s say Mavs get a top 4 pick:

Powell decline his option sign new with Mavs:

- top 4 pick 2019
- Hardaway

- Drummond
- Kennard

Walker and Kidd-Gilchrist (elite defender) told already they like Charlotte but first of all to win. And since Jordan is a gentleman:

- future 2nd
- S&T Walker 5y 170m

Mavs Trade Exception (21,)
- Powell: 4y, starting 10,5m
- Kidd-Gilchrist: 4y, starting 10,5m

Detroit draft Culver or Hunter and Fernando or Bitadze:


Mavs get two defenders and a rim protector and a 3 great scorer to compete:

Drummond, Powell, Mejri
Porzingis, Kleber, Ante
Kidd-Gilchrist, Jackson, Finney-S
Doncic, Kennard, Lee
Walker, Brunson, Burke

14 Apr 2019 00:07:18
Mkg isn’t elite. He’s a slightly above average defender and a significant offensive liability. Honestly don’t think he should be starting anywhere in this league. Dude can’t shoot.

14 Apr 2019 17:02:52
Drummond Porzingis Sloth are as slow as 💩. They will be more of 1/ 2 court team. Walker is not that type of player. Walker and Doncic both need the ball. Bad mix of players.

06 Apr 2019 09:37:43
Pistons 2019 offseason

Pistons/ Memphis trade

Reggie Jackson
Jon Leuer
2019 1st round pick
Mike Conley

Pistons upgrade at the pg and memphis gets expiring contracts and a pick to set them up for the future

Trade 2019 2nd round pick and Galloway to move up in the draft to get Carsen Edwards

let Ish Smith walk and resign Ellington

06 Apr 2019 18:58:32
Two bad contracts and a mid 1st round pick for Conley? Memphis is getting robbed.

06 Apr 2019 02:04:53

IND get Blake Griffin

DET get Myles Turner, Corey Joseph & 1st round pick

Griffin is playing incredibly this season but DET isn't winning with him alone. This may not be enough but the Pacers could make a move like this to upgrade their chances next season

06 Apr 2019 19:02:27
That may not be enough for Griffin? Give me Turner on a rookie deal over Blake on a max any day.

05 Apr 2019 19:08:38

'19 1st

06 Apr 2019 04:34:55
I hope Portland get a young big in the draft that shines. Dame is great to watch but their cap space is non existent.

29 Mar 2019 17:52:53
Good Chance Mavs keep their pick. Is is feasible to build a contender?

If Mavs get #1 and Zion take him, if not trade the top 5 pick for Drummond and Pistions can draft a Winger and a Center and have Powell, Lee for one year:

Draft day:

- Powell, Lee, Top 5 2019
- Drummond

Now there is a dependency if Leonard and Walker wanto to sign in Dallas and if Toronto and Charlotto agree to extend them for max and trade them on draft day. If yes, Toronto could get Hardaway as a winger and move Powell away, that take a bench role in Dallas:

- Hardaway, future 2nd
- Leonard, N.Powell

Finally Mavs have the 21m trade exception and if Charlotte helps Walker to go to Dallas for max, they extend his contract 5y but for 2019 he is still at 12m on the books, Mavs could sign Bruke for 1y 3m:

- Bruke, 2nd 2019
- Walker

Mavs sign back the roster and Chanlder. : )


Drummond, Chandler, Mejri
Zinger, Dirk, Maxi
Leonard, FinneyS, Jackson
Doncic, Powell, Harris
Walker, Brunson, Barea

YES! : )

29 Mar 2019 18:29:31
You’re so delusional.

30 Mar 2019 02:33:27
Y not trade Brunson for a future 2nd and sign jkidd.

30 Mar 2019 15:42:42

31 Mar 2019 15:19:39
Just be happy zinger doesn't end up in jail for rape. Their is your summer.

31 Mar 2019 16:17:10
Porzingis leaves the Knicks, so you take it out on the people on this site.

01 Apr 2019 11:46:17
Put your keys down buddy. can’t let you leave the house talking like that. gimme another scenario so I can see if you’re ok cause CLEARLY, you are not! haha.

28 Mar 2019 11:21:14
Mavs have the luck in the draft and get #2.

1. Draft day trade:
Suns: #2, #32
Mavs: Bridges, Suns pick (#4)

2. Draft day trade:
Pistons: Powell, Lee #4 (Pistons draft a wing #4 and Center #16)
Mavs: Drummond

3. Free agency:
Hornets: S&T Burke, Jackson
Mavs: Walker

28 Mar 2019 13:16:35
So you think the suns are going to give up bridges who they used 2 1st rounders to get just to move up 2 spots? Yet you have the Mavericks giving up Powell and the 4th pick for Drummond. Do you have any clue on player and draft value? Also how many times are you going to offer this? It was ridiculous the first time and nothings change since.

28 Mar 2019 13:23:04
No on trade #2. Powell had 21, 13, 4blks the night before last, he costs 10M, and can play next to Porzingis at either position based on nightly match-ups.

29 Mar 2019 17:55:08
But Bridges was a #10 pick and Suns would Change e. g. the #5 for #2 and they could get the player they need in Morant! IF the Mavs have the lottery luck, as discussed.

20 Mar 2019 15:16:51
Some little luck for Mavs.

Let`s say the Mavs get #2.

Nicks: #1
Mavs: #2
Cavs: #3
Suns: #4

Suns are going for Morant, NY takes Zion, Cavs probaby Barrett. So Mavs offer Suns to trade up. Drummond and Holmes can dominate the rim and shot open threes and Pistions need to change something and are stack at CAP:

- #2 Morant
- Lee
- Holmes
- Bridges
- Drummond
- Powell
- #4

Finally Mavs S&T Walker:

- #32
- 30m trade exception
- Walker 5y

Walker can shot the lights out and is quick, Bridges can do everything and is a good defender, Drummond and Holmes can dominate in the middle two way!

Drummond, Holmes, Mejri
Zinger, Max, Dirk (Ante)
Luka, FinneyS, Jackson
Bridges, Hardaway, Harris
Walker, Brunson, Barea

Very good team! Very good bench. That can beat them all.

20 Mar 2019 18:30:05
Sooo, to move up from #4 to #2, you expect the Suns to trade away Mikal Bridges AND take on Lee's expiring contract?

I would pass and take the chance that Mavs and Cavs both pass on Ja Morant because they already have primary ball handlers (Doncic and Sexton) and may target shooters like Barrett.

21 Mar 2019 13:59:09
There's no way that Mavs and Cavs pass on Morant, if he's the best player available. You should always draft talent over need.
Ask Portland (Sam Bowie over some stuff named Jordan) or Greg Oden over KD. Thinking that was Portland also? Or am I wrong. could be. Lol.

21 Mar 2019 22:23:22
If he is what the Cavs and Mavs think is the best player. GMs rate players differently (especially when they go into evaluations looking for specific skills like shooting) . Was Fultz the best player last year? Lonzo Ball? You can argue that Donovan Mitchell was the best player in that draft at 13. It happens all the time.

22 Mar 2019 02:23:43
Bowie/ Jordan

Oden/ Durant

I'd pick Morant 1st.

18 Mar 2019 19:24:00

Too High Garland Bol Grimes and Hayes

Too Low White Little Fernando and Alexander

Or else it's perfect 😁.

19 Mar 2019 08:07:32
Spurs trade up for Little? Package their 2 1st rounders to move up?

19 Mar 2019 09:12:17
God, I so hope the Knicks end up out of the Williamson sweepstakes. Just to pick off all Knicks fans. Lol.

19 Mar 2019 11:19:49
Still irving is leaving to the knicks. And Davis won't join either. Puke green is done 🤣.

19 Mar 2019 14:04:24
Hahaha. laugh it up now Shizzee. You'll be puking in your mouth when the Celts trade for Davis and resign Kyrie. L.

19 Mar 2019 18:04:41
You’ll both be upset when the Cavs get Zion!

19 Mar 2019 22:04:04
I would be upset if cavs get him, not Phoenix though.

17 Mar 2019 02:35:29
1) Portland-NO-Detroit
NO: D Lillard

Detroit: Jr Holiday

Portland: Jackson+ Leuer+ 1rnd pick NO+ 1rnd pick Detroit+ 1rnd pick NO 2020

2)Portland- Wolves

Wolves: Mccollum

Portland: Teague+ 1rnd pick Wolves+ 1rnd pick Wolves 2020

17 Mar 2019 03:41:51
Portland not trading Lillard unless he requested it.

13 Mar 2019 14:28:44
You have to think in chances and possibilities not in risks - if you are a winner and not a looser - gentleman.

If we would have proposed the Porzingis for Smith + pick trade I could imagin the comment of shizzees and fathers and other loosers? : )


Mavs have a 40% chance to get a top 4 pick. let's say 3rd.

So Mavs send Lee + 2019 2nd out to a team with cap that collect picks.

Trade with Pistons:
- 3rd 2019
- 25m exception
- Drummond
- #15 2019

Mavs draft Alexander-Walker as the quick defender that can score as well.

Mavs sign Walker max or sign & trade him for a future 2nd.

Drummond, Powell, Mejri
Zinger, Kleber, Dirk
Luka, FinneyS, Jackson
Alex-Walker, Hardaway, Harris
Walker, Brunson, Barea

Detroid can sign a 25m center a draft Barrett or Reddish since they are stuck in CAP without and Drummond is on the trade block every year.

Kemba gets the chance to win, to become Mavs Curry : )

Alexander-Walker is a lock-down defender typ but also quick and can score from everywhere, a perfect sidekick. Walker and Drummond can also play some defense.

That team could grow to success.

13 Mar 2019 15:23:41
I don’t think you’re moving Lee with a 2nd. I know it’s only a year, but no one is renting 10 million dollars for a 2nd.

13 Mar 2019 15:36:57
Where is Porzingis?

14 Mar 2019 15:00:01
Bouv man Porzigis is called: Zinger

And it works also with Lee on the grid, but with much more Tax.

07 Mar 2019 22:03:58
Mavs GM : )

Since the post Season is gone and we will see some losses also mit Luka playing well and with a little bit luck and Mavs get a top 5 pick. If it is Zion Keep him : ) Luca Zinger and Zino. But that will not happen but maybe no. 4 or 5.

Based on that Mavs should raise two trades:

- 1st 2019 (Mavs), 25m trade exception
- Drummond
- Dunn
- 1st 2019 (Pistons)

Mavs sign Middleton max and extend Zinger finally max.

Drummond, Powell, Mejri
Zinger, Dirk, Maxi
Middleton, Finney, Jackson
Luka, Hardaway, Lee, Harris
Dunn, Brunson, Barea

07 Mar 2019 23:21:31
240 mil payroll smokin that Texas dirt weed again.

08 Mar 2019 09:31:42
Maybe make trades from the other teams perspective one time. Be the gm of the other team who wants to win. Then you may finally get a believable. Until then. No.

08 Mar 2019 14:11:55
Okay, so the first trade can happen before the start of the new season, but it adds $32 mil (Drummond+Dunn) to next years salary which elevates it to $87 mil ($55 plus $32 mil) . Now add $10 mil if Powell opts in for next year takes us to $97 mil. Now add the $17 mil cap hold to hold on to Porzingis RFA rights puts Dallas at $114 mil for next year which is over the $109 salary cap. So no signing of Middleton.

Also, you roster shows an additional 5 players that are UFAs that Dallas would have to resign as well. Go luck with that.

08 Mar 2019 22:57:31
I agree with Fredman, Middleton is resigning with Milwaukee. He already stated he wanted to. And they are already making Max space contract wise for him.

11 Mar 2019 00:10:24
Bulls offenes Dunn already in the winter but didn‘t geht a first pick, but he is not the first playmaker but may fit well also on Defense with Luka.

Pistons Are Stack of Cap also next Season and Not good enough. To add a top 5 rookie on the Wings and someone with 25 Trade exception would help to Revolver.

Mavs have a 21 mio trade exception in Addition an can try to sell Lee or Powell but with Max out Zinger they will Raise tax player ground as the good other teams

So think positive to make thinks happen. at lebst to try it

Cheers cryers:)

04 Mar 2019 17:27:05
Detroit: turner+Leonard+ Z collins+ 1rnd pick Portland+ 2rnd pick Nets 2020

Port: B griffin

C: nurkic
Pf: B Griffin
Sg: McCollum
PG: Lillard

04 Mar 2019 21:10:41
As a Blazer fan, I'd take that in a heartbeat.

03 Mar 2019 12:58:39
Detroit starts rebuilding

1) Detroit-Spurs-OKC

OKC: B Griffin

Spurs: Schroder

Det: Noel+ Robertson+Mills+Forbes+ 1rnd pick OKC 2024+ 2rnd pick OKC+ 2rnd pick spurs

Det: Hayward+ 1rnd pick Memphis 2020
Boston: Drummond

04 Mar 2019 02:03:05
Please work on your cap space managment. Blake makes $34 mil next season while Roberson + Noel (assuming he opts in) is $13 mil and OKC is already over the luxury tax for next year let alone the salary cap for next year. Toss in schroder and the Melo trade exception to get the salaries right.

04 Mar 2019 04:06:57
My bad. didn't see shroeder getting diverted to the Spurs.

20 Feb 2019 17:56:35
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, ?
