Cavs Pistons Charlotte

Cavs receive

Pistons receive

Hornets receive
Jr Smith(expiring)
2021 first round pick from Cavs

19 Jun 2018 03:51:44
Detroit trades griffin, bullock
Receive o.porter,, Evans s&t

Washington trade porter, mahinmi
Receive Bender, chandler, Dudley, I.Smith

Memphis trade parsons, green , #4
Receive B.Griffin, R.Bullock, 2nd suns

Phoenix trade bender, chandler, j.dud, 2nd
Receive #4, parsons, mihinmi

Suns push their rebuild back for the 4th overall pick. They can take Doncic #1 and a big #4. Sounds worth it for swallowing a few
bloated contracts.

Grizz add a star who can compliment Gasol along with a 3&d wing who compliments Conley and is out performing his contract.

Wizards dump long term salary and add a ton of veteran depth. Perhaps they deserve a 2nd.

Detroit adds some expensive wing help and makes sense of its roster.

19 Jun 2018 04:41:51
Dude absolutely Not : Washington is not trying get bad Ok Washington is still trying win ok so there not selling away contracts just get out of bad contacts ok just get bad it one thing if make us better to help us win not just get out of bad contacts we not just giving away Otto Porter ok.

19 Jun 2018 01:57:11
Detroit get Kevin Love, Jordan Clarckson and 8th pick

Cleveland get Blake Griffin

19 Jun 2018 04:18:24
I like Blake, but he doesn’t have that kind of value. He and Love are pretty close to equal in value.

19 Jun 2018 04:18:25
The Cavs shouldn't even trade Love for Griffin.

19 Jun 2018 06:27:50
Cavs need more back. Stanley Johnson?

21 Jun 2018 18:46:53
The Cavs do need something more but if Griffin stays healthy he will keep the Cleveland fans in seats. He is a generic Lebron. He can grab rebounds and lead a fast break or finish. He is a really good passer.

If Lebron stays he'll be able to rest more with Griffin. Keep in mind that it is Lebron that is possibly pushing the trade Love so.

18 Jun 2018 11:44:02

18 Jun 2018 14:39:09
The clippers are being rumored to being offered either 12 or 13 and tobias. Tobias is an expiring contract. Kawhi could opt out after this year and is coming off of an injury that kept him out all season. His value is not as high as many believe. Blake got Tobias, 1 pick, boban and an expiring in bradley. Kawhi who will leave SA after this next season will get around the same or less.

18 Jun 2018 15:58:51
I read 12 + Harris and others. It'll be a bidding war between the 2 l. a. Teams if Leonard really wants out.

18 Jun 2018 15:59:00
Leonard will get more than Blake. Blake has just as many health concern as Kawhi, he never has been declining the past few years, Kawhi can fit on any team unlike Blake, there has to be real concern that Griffin won't be worth his huge contract and Kawhi is so much better than Griffin.

19 Jun 2018 14:59:56
@rkenne_16 a big difference between the 2 is the fact that leonard is a free agent after this season. who is willing to give up more to get a 1 year rental if he wants to come to LA anyway? An expiring contract who averages 19ppg and a lottery pick? I would say it's going to be tough to beat that. maybe they even throw in fillers like Dekker and thornwell.

17 Jun 2018 06:43:42
Blazers get - Drummond Saric TLC and Bayless
76ers get - McCollum and Leonard
Pistons get - Turner 10th pick and 24th pick
*pistons trade Griffen and enter full rebuild*



Pistons TBD depending on picks received for Griffen

17 Jun 2018 14:02:31
Not sure I'd absorb Turner for 10, let alone give up Drummond.

18 Jun 2018 17:36:25
Detroit can find a better deal if they trade Drummond.
I was thinking brown, 1st and filler to send Dre to Boston.

19 Jun 2018 10:20:07

Sixers lineup
PG Simmons / McConnell
SG McCollum / Fultz / Korkmas
SF Leonard / Covington / Anderson
PF Illyasova / overseas stash PF (Bolden)
C Embiid / R. Holmes

Covington and Fultz can fight to be the 6th Man of the Year.

Bring back llyasova (3years-28Mil)

15 Jun 2018 08:44:27
Wolves: B Griffin+Bullock

Detroit: Wiggins+ gibson

PF: B Griffin
SG: J Butler
PG: J Teague

15 Jun 2018 13:18:18
If I'm Minnesota I'm jumping on this one. Wiggins has all the talent in the world, but he hasn't translated that yet. Griffin has shown he's got superstar ability, but has also shown he's not "the guy" which he wouldn't have to be with the Wolves. Bullock gives them a solid 3pt presence for their rotation. I like it a lot for them.

As far as Detroit goes, I think they need to start tearing down. Wiggins is one of those talents you can pull in and try to build around, while Gibson can either be flipped to a contending team, or can provide really solid veteran leadership on a team of kids.

I think I would ask for a pick or two if I'm Detroit, and the money doesn't work on the trade machine, but I really like this idea. To even things out, Dieng would have to go to the Pistons with someone like Johnson going to Minnesota or you'd have to even things out with Aldrich and another Wolf. but the framework is good!

17 Jun 2018 04:20:00
Take out bullock and add a pick and maybe pistons agree.

14 Jun 2018 16:00:19
Clippers - Knicks

Clippers gets:
9th pick
2019 2nd rd pick (Cavs, Magic or Rockets)
2020 2nd rd pick (Hornets)

Knicks gets:
12th pick (Pistons)
13th pick

14 Jun 2018 18:46:07
The Clippers are not trading 2 lottery picks to move up 3 spots. It's pointless.

12 Jun 2018 09:15:33
Detroit: Deng+ Ball

Spurs:Ingam+R Jackson+1rnd pick cle+ 1rnd pick LA 2019+ 1rnd pick LA 2021

LA: Drummond+K Leonard+ D Murray

LA sign LBJ And CP3
sign J Johnson for vet min

C: Drummond/Zubac
SF:K Leonard/LBJ/ J Johnson
SG:Hart/ Murray/ J Johnson
PG:CP3/ Murray/ennis

12 Jun 2018 14:53:40
Forget Leonard, he's going to sign an extension in San Antonio.

12 Jun 2018 19:20:56
Nike gives Leonard a much better contract in LA.

13 Jun 2018 19:09:16
Drummond and Jackson for Deng and Ball?? Are you serious?

17 Jun 2018 04:21:08
This sucks for Detroit.

12 Jun 2018 06:01:55
Charlotte get Griffen, Jackson, Galloway

Detroit get Walker, Batum, Williams, picks?

Jordan wants a star and I think Griffen would sell tickets. Health would be a concern but this team looks playoff worthy if they can stay on the court.

Walker and Drummond could be tough to stop. Jackson was good when healthy but Kemba brings it to the next level. This trade might actually lose some talent for Detroit but could be a better fit. Blake and Dre isn't going to be easy to make work.

12 Jun 2018 16:15:56
Like your trades.

10 Jun 2018 15:12:39

MIN gets:

- DeMar DeRozan
- Wesley Matthews
- Reggie Jackson

TOR gets:

- Andrew Wiggins
- Gorgui Dieng
- MIN 2018 1st round pick (#20)
- Pistons 2nd round pick (#43)

DAL gets:

- Cole Aldrich
- Jon Leuer
- MIN 2019 1st round pick (Top 10 protected)
- Jonathan Simmons
- D. J. Augustin

DET gets:

- Kyle Lowry

ORL gets:

- Jeff Teague

MIN does this because.

- they get the best player in the trade. DeRozan and Butler automatically become one of the best wing duos in the league. Reggie Jackson is a solid point guard - hust like Jeff Teague. Plus, Wesley Matthews is a good veteran and solid back up wing. Also, getting rid of Andrew Wiggins, who was causing problems with Jimmy Butler and Thibs, will be nice as well.

PG: R. Jackson-D. Rose-T. Jones
SG: J. Butler-W. Matthews
SF: D. DeRozan-FA
PF: T. Gibson-FA
C: K. Anthony-Towns-J. Patton

TOR does this because.

- they are officially in rebuild mode. Getting swept by the LeBron's - I mean Cavs - should make it obvious that it is ime to rebuild. They should get rid of Kyle Lowry before he is considered a bad contract. While losing their franchise player, DeMar DeRozan, will hurt, TOR does get two picks and Andrew Wiggins - who still has a lot of potential.

Potential Starting lineup:

To be decided. with more trades

DAL does this because.

- they gain a pick. While they do pick up a bunch of expensive contracts, a pick for the tanking Mavericks should always make Mark Cuban happy.

Potential Starting lineup:

It does not matter

DET does this because.

- they have to go all in. Now with Blake Griffin's contract, the Pistons have to invest all they have in the present. Adding Kyle Lowry gives the Pistons another star and another shot at making it to the playoffs.

PG: K. Lowry-Ish Smith
SG: L. Kennard-L. Galloway
SF:S. Johnson-R. Bullock
PF:B. Griffin-H. Ellenson
C: A. Drummond-FA

ORL does this because.

- they actually have a point guard who can run an offense. Since Jameer Nelson, the Magic have never had decent point guard play. With Jeff Teague, Steve Clifford gets a veteran to run his offense.

10 Jun 2018 15:18:54
Minnesota says no.

10 Jun 2018 16:04:06
Toronto trades two all stars for a younger more expensive worse version of derozan, a average big ( they don't need) and two weak picks?

10 Jun 2018 20:16:25
The Pistons trade two bad contracts and get Lowry?

10 Jun 2018 22:19:13
why would minnesota say no?

11 Jun 2018 02:12:05
swapping wiggins for derozan does do anything to make KAT happier about his role on offense, he should be their first priority.

11 Jun 2018 14:53:59
Raptors say no. They give up two allstars for a weak/ expensive shooter, back up center ( which they font need) and a low pick?

11 Jun 2018 18:50:17
Toronto is not giving up Derozan for that, especially when you throw in Lowry. Both those guys have reasonable contracts, they can do better. I will agree that they might explore rebuild mode, but will wait on what Lebron does. If he leaves the East, they stay in tact. Also, like how you stated the mavericks line-up. funny.

09 Jun 2018 23:25:31
I know it's far fetched, but if Lebron leaves and Cavs are wanting to start over...

Cavs get Melo, Terrance Ferguson, Alex Abrines, Stanley Johnson, okc second

Detroit gets Kyle Singler, Okc second

Thunder get Kevin Love, JR Smith, Luke Kennard

Detroit may need some convincing, but Singler played well for them, it cuts salary which is a big need for them, plus a pick is a pick.

Cavs essentially take on an expiring deal with Melo (he's not opting out of that type of money). They shed Smith, and they get a second rounder.

Thunder are ready to make a title run next season. Maybe Smith can play that Harden/Waiters role off the bench.

10 Jun 2018 00:27:27
Melo wouldn't accept that and while Love doesn't have the value he used to, I would imagine they want a 1st out of him.

10 Jun 2018 00:42:59
They need to dump Clarkson Thompson and korver.

09 Jun 2018 07:45:30

Porter, Meeks, Frazier, gortat are not fetching 3 even if batum was in the deal.

09 Jun 2018 14:32:34
If i'm the Pels i don't want Gasol.

11 Jun 2018 20:17:31
This trade is awful for the hawks. Otto Porter: an average SF who is over paid making 25 mil a year, and two terrible contracts in Reggie Jackson and Cody Zeller, do not warrant a second round pick let alone the number 3 pick in the draft.

08 Jun 2018 03:25:38
Pistons trade - Drummond
Bulls trade - Portis Asik and 7th

Pistons trade - Griffin and Bullock
Grizz trade - Parsons McClemore and 4th

Pistons draft - Bamba and Porter Jr

Porter Jr

08 Jun 2018 05:24:07
I'd keep parsons and 4 over griffin. The contracts of gasol, conley, parsons expire within a season of each other this hurts the Griz long-term and their building process.

07 Jun 2018 05:27:20
If Lebron decides to leave.

Cavs Portland Detroit 3 team trade

Cavs receive

Portland receives

Detroit receives
Portland 2020 first round pick
Cavs 2021 first round pick

Cavs get younger players yet have some experience and can rebuild and not give a completely crappy product of their former self like they did when Lebron originally left.

Detroit add a better scorer than Drummond plus can add a few assets for the future.

Portland needs overall help besides Lillard and Mccollum so Hill and Korver gives them good experience help of the bench and that's what they need. Only for a few young prospects and a future first.

07 Jun 2018 06:12:13
Hill andKorver can't guard and don't score enough.

06 Jun 2018 20:23:20
Detroit gets: Kevin Love, George Hill, and Cedi Osman

Cleveland gets: Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson, Langston Galloway, and DeMarre Carroll

Brooklyn gets: Tristan Thompson and 2018 pick back.

This is if Lebron decides to stay. Works on trade machine

07 Jun 2018 02:38:01
Cavs say no straight away. I think Carroll could be had for Thompson and '21 1st. Drummond and Jackson would border on unplayable against GSW. Cedi > Galloway IMO.

07 Jun 2018 04:18:59
Nets love this deal.

21 Jun 2018 19:44:02
People wasting their time putting Drummond in any deal and Love unfortunately has his troubles from within. Detroit's owner will never trade Drummond.

04 Jun 2018 22:03:57
Trade tt, '19 to Mavs for pick 54

Trade Jr seconds to Hawks for a 2023 second

Trade hill to suns for ulis, pick 59

Trade clarckson, Hawks 2nd to Pistons for Johnson, Bullock, boban trade exception

Kevin love, Kyle korver, nets pick for kawhi Leonard (grand slam)

Resign Bron 30m per yr

Sign pg 4/ 104m

Trade Nancy, zizic, Osman, to nuggets for pick 14,faried

S/ t pick 14,hood for pick 12

Sign a shooter to mle

Sign Noel

Draft Sexton


04 Jun 2018 05:00:24
Lebron leaves, Cavs rebuild.

Cavs receive: Noel 1+TO 5m/y
Mavs receive: Thompson, '19 2nd, 3m cash

Cavs receive: MKG, Top 40 protected '19 2nd
Hornets receive: Smith (Exp)

Cavs receive: Galloway, Johnson, '19 & '20 2nds
Detroit receive: Clarkson

Draft day deal
Cavs receive: Gasol, Pau, White, pick 18, '19 & '21 1st
Spurs receive: Love

Cavs receive: Pick 53, '20 2nd
OKC receive: Korver

Cavs receive: Knight, Pick 16
Suns receive: Hill (Exp), Det '19 2nd, OKC '20 2nd

Resign Hood up to 4/50m
Draft 8 Porter, 16 K. Knox, 18 Z. Smith
Draft and Stash pick 53

PG: Knight, Galloway, White
SG: Hood, Smith, Paul
SF: Porter, Osman, Johnson
PF: Nance, MKG, Knox
C: Noel, Gasol, Zizic

Tank to keep their '19 1st (Top 5 protected). Build up Knight & MKG trade value or just use as an expiring at the end of the year.
Gasol is to mentor the big men but has little money guaranteed after the '19 season

04 Jun 2018 16:47:10
You prob should throw in like 5 or 6 more trades just to make it realistic.

03 Jun 2018 22:28:11
Okc gets Paul Milsap
Den gets Melo (opt-in, waive no-trade clause), Langston Galloway, 2 seconds (OKC)
Det gets Kyle Singler

Okc gets an overpaid Milsap to try and convince George to stay and make one more run with Russ.

Denver can keep Melo and have a scorer and a feel good story. He's also a huge expiring contract next summer when they need cap room. Or they can work a buyout and open up money now. Galloway would be a nice shooter to spread the floor.

Detroit has a tax problem. This cuts $2M plus whatever else in taxes. Singler played well with the Pistons and could turn things around.


03 Jun 2018 23:00:24
Melo has to accept it doubt he would. Okc eats melo for one more year.

04 Jun 2018 00:44:47
No way OKC dumps Anthony and gets a starter back.
Like Shiller says above, the Thunder will have to lug him around for another season, unless they put him in a Have-a-Heart trap and release him in the wilderness.

03 Jun 2018 21:21:53
Change of scenery for overpaid players - AKA Bring-out-yer-dead trade

Pistons - K. Bazemore
Hawks - E. Fournier, R. Jackson, Pistons 2nd
Magic - D. Schroder, S. Johnson

03 Jun 2018 22:00:40
no reason for any team to do this.

03 Jun 2018 22:14:11
Magic accept.

03 Jun 2018 22:34:35
noahmerv, probably not no. But the trade machine is fun! Here I shall manufacture some reasons.

Magic - They need a point guard bad and maybe the change of scenery inspires Schroder to be an above average PG. Stanley Johnson may be a bust, who knows but maybe he fills in and eases the loss of a departing Hezonja. Also Fournier is overpaid.

Pistons - They turn an overpaid and injury prone player (Jackson), a bust (Johnson), plus a second rounder into a decent but overpaid SG (Bazemore) . Besides, they do crazy stuff like acquire Griffin and his horrible contract out of nowhere, who knows what they'll do next.

Hawks - Schroder will probably be ousted. He's bashed the Hawks publicly and makes too much money for like the 20th best point guard in the league. Bazemore is also overpaid. They get a decent SG in Fournier and can try to revive Jackson plus a pick.

Again, was just an idea to give some guys a change of scenery to see if it helps.
