millsap/ harris/ leonard/ simmons/ paul.

21 May 2017 08:01:48
Paul and Millsap both are going to demand 4 years and max contracts and Len is going to cost probably 4 times that much.

Spurs should be able to get much more than that for Aldridge and I don't think Detroit is the best destination.

21 May 2017 10:57:37
Gasol has player option, can't just let him go if he opts in.

21 May 2017 20:43:45
Pau is not opting out of 16.1 million at age 37.

19 May 2017 23:56:04
Raptors trade Joseph, Carroll, 23th pick, 1st round pick 2019 (top10 protected)

Pistons trade R.Jackson, Morris

Raptors:
- go all-in to to keep core together, Jackson and Morris are updates over Joseph and Carroll
- safe about 2m cap + let Patterson walk and safe 6m more
- resign Lowry, Ibaka, Tucker
Lowry/R.Jackson/Wright
DeRozan/R.Jackson/Powell
Tucker/Powell/DeRozan/Caboclo
Ibaka/Morris/Tucker/Siakam
Valanciunas/Nogueira/Ploetl/Ibaka
- small lineup: Lowry-Jackson-DeRozan-Tucker-Ibaka

20 May 2017 05:05:41
The Pistons sign off on this in record speed.

20 May 2017 07:06:38
Don't like it for Raptors. Jackson didn't look good at all returning from injury and he would be an extremely expensive backup for next 3 years and reportedly is cancerous in the lockeroom. Also with the extensions Ibaka and Lowry will command Raptors would be deep in the luxury tax for at least next 3 years. Raptors should try and move Carrol but they should be looking for cost effective alternatives. I'd probably be more interested if Jackson wasn't involved and Raptors just kept Joseph.

If you could get all 3 teams to agree that great.

But Philly doesn't need Jackson or that contract.

19 May 2017 19:17:25
Sixers say no. Mr. October is injury prone, overpaid, and rumored to be a bad locker room guy. No thanks.

19 May 2017 20:03:13
I don't think the Celtics go for that. They're not going to give up the Brooklyn pick for Drummond, let alone both of their bulldogs. I can see them moving one of Smart or Crowder. probably Crowder. but I don't see both of them being shipped out. They're the guys who give that team it's swagger, and protect IT. DA loves that, so I don't think he'll move both.

19 May 2017 20:04:09
Aside from that, I don't think Drummond is worth his contract, let alone the players it will probably take to get him. He's a completely one dimensional player.

19 May 2017 20:31:55
IT is 1 dimensional.
Drummond is worth next years pick.
Cut the 6ers right out of this deal and just deal with Pistons.

Smart has shown to be inconsistent and if they get Hayward they don't need Crowder.

Start with 18 Boston pick and a 2nd rd., Smart and Crowder.

19 May 2017 21:17:09
Philly fans you really wouldn't take Jackson for the Brooklyn pick? I don't think Jackson is a good fit, his contract is awful and he looked bad coming back from injury this year but we are talking about a Brooklyn pick that'll likely be top 5 in next year's draft. Philly has the cap space to absorb Jacksons contract without too much trouble (they have most cap space in the league) .

That however is an awful return for Detroit can't see them giving up Drummond for so little, they would need to be getting that Brooklyn pick for them to begin to consider trading him in my opinion.

Celtics need to clear space in order to sign Hayward as is even if they didn't sign any of their FA and ignored their cap holds. They can't take on Drummond's contract and still sign Hayward to the max. If they wanted a center of Drummond's caliber and a top wing like Hayward they'd have to deal Horford and probably Bradley since both Bradley and IT have 1 year left on their contracts.

19 May 2017 23:10:15
Jaws. They're not going to trade Al, I still say that IT will get traded because that makes the most sense.

Make some kind of deal for Vucevic, sign Hayward, trade #1 for pick 4-7 get a player who they can develop. Then resign AB when the time comes. By then Zizic could be developed enough to start and Vucevic will be off the books.

The window is now to get their moneys worth out of Horford.

19 May 2017 07:22:21
Eric Bledose is a very solid pg signed reasonably for 2 more years that can play very good defense and be a second scoring option on a playoff team. Phx should shop him for younger talent after he is coming off a good, healthy season (he missed only one game before being benched at end of season to allow Suns to tank)

Which of these Eric Bledsoe trades do you think is most reasonable?

1. Bledsoe + #32 to Bulls for #16
Bledsoe would give Bulls a starting caliber pg on a reasonable contract to pair with Butler and create a defensive duo. Bulls could still sign someone like Galo to be a stretch 4. Phx add a younger piece with pick

2. Bledsoe + Warren for Dallas #9
Dallas makes a move that puts them in playoff contention with strong starting pg as well as a young wing in Warren who can score off the bench. Phx get another lotto pick. Can get Tatum and Smith/ Ntilikina to add to young core

3. Bledsoe + #32 to Denver for #13 pick
A lot of potential moves Nuggets could make for Bledsoe but he'd give them a true starting caliber pg that would be deadly combo with Jokic that could push them into playoffs. Phx get another lotto pick to add young talent that will help in the future.

4. Bledsoe to Detroit for #12, Jackson
Jackson looked bad returning from injury and is due a lot of money. They upgrade at pg while saving money with Bledsoe. Phx takes Jacksons bad deal and gets a lotto pick too. Phx would probably try to make a move for Stanley Johnson too who seems under-utilized.

5. Bledose to Indy for #18 pick
indy already has Teague but he would cost double Bledsoe's salary to resign. The money saved could be used to bring in more help via FA and help Pacers build a more formidable team to make a last stand to keep George.

19 May 2017 10:07:21
I think the Denver deal is the best here and could potentially get them into the playoffs while giving the suns a decent pick in return.

19 May 2017 14:39:08
OK. how about :
Bledsoe, #32 pick this year. and Miami's 2018 1st. to Orlando for #6 and some filler.

19 May 2017 19:48:23
I like the Denver move. It works for both sides, and the value both get are great. I don't know if 16 or 18 are good enough picks for me to move Bledsoe straight up. he's not perfect, but I'm not sure if you're getting someone better than him there, even in this draft.

If I'm Dallas, I have to start thinking about getting some youth in there. Dirk only has a year or two left, and while I'm all about giving him a last hurrah, you also have to think about the future when you can. They need to bring in a kid to build their next generation. The Detroit trade is interesting, as they have plenty of cap space to bring Jackson in to just sit the bench if they wanted.

#12 is a very enticing return for that, but I don't do it just because of how bad he seems to be for the culture of his teams. I don't want a guy like that infecting my young kids.

18 May 2017 15:42:25
NY-BOS

NY trades: Noah-Porzingis-O'Quinn-Kuzminkas-#8pick

BOS trades: Horford-Thomas-Mickey-2017 Minny 2nd-2018 top 5 protected C's 1st-2019 Clippers 1st-2019 detroit 2nd-2020 Miami 2nd

Boston can build a super team with all these great young players.

Knicks get two veterans and with Melo form a great big 3 that could push Cleveland for the East.

18 May 2017 17:24:18
swap 1st round picks and uniforms. even trade.

18 May 2017 17:33:22
That would be one direction the Celtics could go, and it could give them a crazy core with Porzingis, Fultz, Brown, Yabusele, Smart, Zizic, Rozier, maybe Monk or Isaac at 8, etc.

Fultz/ Rozier/ Jackson
Bradley/ Smart/ Monk
Crowder/ Brown/ Kuzminskas/ Nader
Porzingis/ Yabusele
O'Quinn/ Hernangomez/ Zizic

That's a very interesting young team, even while taking away the two top players. I don't see DA going for it though, since they're already near the summit with assets still coming in. If Porzingis was actually available, I think they'd be foolish not to look into sending NY a package that DIDN'T include IT, Horford, Brown or the #1. Send just about anything else. They have enough assets that Jackson might be willing to take bulk over individual quality.

18 May 2017 17:50:09
Celtics are not going to go into a rebuild situation with young talent. They are in a win now mode. They need to stay the course and acquire Hayward, or Butler who I'd prefer and get a big (Drummond, Whiteside) .

18 May 2017 03:15:32
Celtics have too many guards and NEED another big man

Bos-Det

Det trades: Drummond

Boston trades: Bradley-Zeller-Rozier-Mickey 2018 Brooklyn (Top 5 protected turns into 2018 C's 1st and 2020 C's 1st) 2019 Clippers 1st 2017 Clippers 2nd 2019 Detroit 2nd and 2020 Miami 2nd

WHY?

Detroit gets 2-3 1st round picks, a all nba defensive player who scores 17 a game, a growing prospect in Rozier and two players totalling 10 million in salary that can be cut at anytime, and 3 2nd rounders. All this together they can rebuild and continue to grow.

Boston gets their rim protecting/rebounding big they NEED as well as relieve the log jam of guards

DET
PG-KCP/Rozier/Smith
SG-Bradley/Jackson/Hilliard
SF-Harris/Johnson/Bullock
PF-Morris/Leuer/Ellenson
C-Collins (12 pick)/Baynes/Boban

BOS
PG-Thomas/Smart/Jackson
SG-Fultz/Young/FA
SF-Crowder/Brown/Nader
PF-Horford/Yabusele/FA
C-Drummond/Olynyk/Zizic

What do you think?

18 May 2017 20:43:37
You hold the guns to their heads and I'll be lookout from my computer. Detroit Doesn't want to be in limbo for 3 years while this plays out. But hey, I'm all for it. Then trade for Butler.

17 May 2017 21:40:58
Boston Celtics Offseason:

1) Draft Fultz
2) Sign Hayward
3) Trade for Andre Drummond

1 & 2 are very possible options that can easily happen... 3 is where it gets interesting but it's known that Drummond can be obtained via trade. Detroit is looking to restart and get a new identity. SO:
Drummond for Crowder, Rozier, and picks if needed (future 1sts Clippers, Grizzlies or own pick).

Depth Chart:
IT/Fultz
AB/Smart
Hayward/Brown
Horford/Olynyk (if can go into hard cap)
Drummond/FA (vet min)

17 May 2017 22:25:40
Drummond is not a FA, he's signed for another 3years.

Taking Fultz will cost money being the #1 pick. So I see that pick getting moved to save money and to get what they need. A BIG.

So unless Crowder will play the 2 spot he will be moved if they do sign Hayward and if they keep Crowder then AB will be traded.

17 May 2017 23:44:41
Why would Detroit give up Drummond for that return. I think Detroit would want at least the 2018 Brooklyn pick involved (ideally the 2017 #1 Brooklyn pick) . Maybe they could get away with a deal centered around Jaylen Brown if they added enough around him.

Crowder, Rozier and those non-Nets picks won't cut it.

Signing Hayward isn't as straight forward as it seems since Celtics won't have the 30.6 mill max he'll demand. Ignoring all FA cap holds (Green, Jerekbo, Olynk, Johnson and Young), their draft picks (#1, Yabusele and Zizic) and waiving Jackson, Mickey and Zeller they'd have 36 mill. That drops to 29 mill with cap hold for #1 pick. Therefore if Celtics wanted Hayward and to keep some guys on their bench they'd basically need to trade AD (which is smart since he, IT and Smart are all due extensions next offseason) .

18 May 2017 03:09:05
Zelts. My bad, I didn't see the slash after Drummonds name. just saw the FA vet min. Sorry!

But I'm all for Drummond to Boston. They could sure use him now, down by 24 in the 3rd.

17 May 2017 04:12:39
Detroit Sends: Andre Drummond, KCP
Detroit Receives: Avery Bradley, Tyler Zeller, Terry Rozier, Jahlil Okafor and Robert Covington.

Boston Sends: Avery Bradley, Tyler Zeller, Terry Rozier
Boston Receives: Andre Drummond

Philadelphia sends: Jahlil Okafor and Robert Covington.
Philadelphia receives: KCP

What do you think? My thought process is boston ends up taking Fultz and keeping him, so they need a big and rebounding.
Philly will take tatum , so they need a two guard. KCP will get big extension but they can afford it.
Detroit starts over and gets a good piece in okafor and bradley and also adds depth.

17 May 2017 05:41:17
As a Celtics fan i love this but I doubt we can get away with sending that little and get Drummond.

17 May 2017 06:37:15
Detroit is getting fleeced on both Drummond and KCP. They aren't going to just trade their two best players (who are both under 24) to "start-over" with Okafor who is a considerable downgrade from Okafor and Bradley who is better than KCP at this point in his career but similar 3 and D style but has only 1 year left on his deal.

Boston needs to include a Brooklyn pick if they seriously want Drummond.

76ers need to include more for KCP. The #3 is too rich and Pistons don't have too much else that would interest the 76ers so maybe a future 1st added and they take Leur or somebodies contract.

17 May 2017 14:11:17
If they didn't want to match on KCP, I think Detroit would do this in a heartbeat. It all really depends on whether ownership is backing SVG or Drummond. I just don't get the feeling that Van Gundy likes Drummond at all, and would love him out. I actually don't like this from Boston's point of view. Drummond is a vastly overpaid elite rebounder. If I'm making a move with real pieces, and taking on a big contract, I'm looking to the Clippers. If I'm looking for just rebounding, I'd look to Vucevic for a much lower price-tag both in players and cash.

15 May 2017 21:52:06
okc get tobias harris

detroit gets sobonis abrines 2nd round pick

15 May 2017 22:35:56
share what u think plz.

15 May 2017 23:00:50
I would like Harris on a the Thunder but think Kanter need to be involved for salaries to match. Also believe Sabonis is untouchable unless an unlikely trade for a star/ superstar would happend.

16 May 2017 02:25:14
well maybe right about sabonis but nba trade machine.

16 May 2017 04:44:46
It's a decent trade for both sides. OKC will do anything to keep Westbrook. I doubt Sabonis is anywhere near untouchable.

16 May 2017 05:56:33
I don't think it makes Thunder dramatically better and it adds decent amount of salary to their books so I don't think they'd do it. If I'm Pistons I'd be interested in the cap relief and Sabonis a solid big who could potentially be a stretch big compliment to Drummond.

13 May 2017 20:31:25

Pistons Offseason:
Sign:
Kcp 4yr/95 mil
Johnathon Simmons 3yr/45 mil
Nikola Mirotic 2yr/15 mil


Trade:
Reggie Jackson, Tobias Harris and 2017 1st to Suns for Eric Bledsoe,TJ Warren and a 2017 1st

Draft:
1st: De'Aaron Fox
Lineup:
Bledsoe/Smith/ Fox
Kcp/ Simmons/ Johnson
Warren/ Johnson/ Bullock
Morris/ Leur/ Mirotic
Drummond/Boban

12 May 2017 22:13:18
Zero chance Suns do that trade they aren't giving up their potentially #2 pick for that return. I don't think Suns would even do Bledsoe and Warren for Jackson and Harris. Jackson didn't look good returning from injury and is due big bucks.

12 May 2017 22:17:08
Don't think the Sun's are giving up a top 5 pick for that.

12 May 2017 22:20:16
So the suns get a worse pg, a sf making a lot more money for similiar production, and move down most likely 8ish spots in the draft?

13 May 2017 07:46:16
Garbage trade for Suns!

11 May 2017 19:58:39
Thunder Offseason

Pistons gets: Kanter, Singler, 21st

Thunder gets: Harris, Marjanovic, 2nd

Resign Roberson, Collison

Let Gibson and Cole walk

Lineup:
Westbrook/Christon/FA
Oladipo/Abrines/FA
Roberson/McDermott/Huestis
Harris/Grant/Collison
Adams/Sabonis/FA

11 May 2017 20:05:07
Why would pistons trade harris for kanter if they still have drummond?

11 May 2017 20:11:13
Use Kanter as a backup and with Drummond missing free throws, his playingtime will be like the one in OKC.

11 May 2017 22:29:07
Magsnusarn, do you ever get tired of trying to deal Kanter and Singler? You're like Knicks fans trying to deal Melo to the Clips in 100 different formats, just you've been doing this for much longer.

12 May 2017 12:14:43
What's wrong with making different kind of trades including the same players from one of the teams?

You have to compare offers in trades to see which value players have and what you can get for them.

12 May 2017 13:38:20
Because you offer the same package. Why not go this package to any ok offer from any team. Save some space.

Also. Most teams don't actively look to overpay a backup center. So yeah. Dumb.

This works in trade machine now, don't know if it would after new contracts for some of these players. What do you you all think?

04 May 2017 05:40:27
LAC getting too much for Blake.

06 May 2017 20:01:26
Looks like that would work!

03 May 2017 16:19:44
Cavs get Drummond and Millsap (s and t)

OkC gets Love

Detroit gets Sabonis, Abrines, Kanter, OkC's 2017 1st (after it's made), Swap rights in 2019 with OKC, and 2 future OKC 2nds.

Atlanta gets T Thompson

The Cavs end up improving their defense without losing much offensively

OKC gets a 2nd star, out from under Kanter's contract, and end up with one of the best shooting bigs in the game.

Detrioy gets a nice package of young players and picks to start a rebuild.

Atlanta gets a young defensive big instead of losing Millsap for nothing.

03 May 2017 17:12:52
Awful return for Detroit, OKC needs to give up more (likely Oladipo or Adams) if they are to get a player of Love's caliber.

03 May 2017 17:13:18
To quote the infamous Lavar Ball, "you can't win a championship with three white guys. " That being said, the Pistons pass. And 2 low 1st round picks should not be considered much additional incentive. The Hawks say hell no. I'd rather lose Millsap for nothing than take Thompson. Thompson does not fit the Hawks style and him and Dwight together would be horrible. Cap space > Thompson.

03 May 2017 18:02:13
Jones, Tristan can provide similar production to Howard. He doesn't provide the same length and shot blocking, but he provides some and is a much more versatile defender. He's making roughly 7 million dollars less, still has the potential to grow on the offensive end (he was developing a decent offensive game before Lebron came back), and he's a solid locker room guy unlike Howard who is already causing problems. They could bring Tristan in and deal Howard. I'm not sure Howard plays the Hawks 'style', but Tristan doesn't.

03 May 2017 18:16:44
This entire message board is going to be shocked at what DET gets back for this summer.

03 May 2017 19:46:22
rkenne_16, Thompson has more defense versatility than Howard. That's his only on-court advantage. Howard is a better rebounder, better lob threat, better interior defender, and a better free throw shooter. And I haven't seen anything in thompson's game that would say offensive improvement. I think he has pretty much maxed out his potential. Also, howard's contract is 1 year shorter than Thompson's. Howard doesn't fit the Atlanta style but he solved their biggest problems (lack of rebounding and interior defense) . Replacing him with Thompson would be a step backwards in both of those areas, hurt the Hawks financial flexibility, and it would make the Hawks organization look bad by abandoning their hometown hero. The reason you are proposing this trade is to get Millsap, which is only possible for Cleveland through a sign and trade. However, Cleveland is not willing to give up anything that the Hawks would want. Therefore, you can kiss your chances of getting Millsap goodbye. When proposing trades, let's keep in mind that they should be beneficial for all parties involved. Your idea clearly violates the most basic concept of a trade.

03 May 2017 21:00:36
A sign and trade doesn't follow the standard rules to a trade. The Hawks would end up with a long term starter at center rather than nothing. Without Millsap the Hawks will be a lottery team and will only beable to sign young players by grossly over paying them. The Hawks would insane not to replace Howard with Tristan if it were an option. Tristan's numbers have improved the past 2 years after dipping when Lebron came back and when he had an expanded role in the offense he was averaging 12 a game on 50 percent from the field in his 3rd year. He definitely hasn't peaked. As for free throw shooting Tristan is a career 61 percent free throw shooter while Howard is at 56 percent. Howard is a slightly better rebounder and shot blocker at this point, but the gap isn't large and in the next year or two Tristan could over take him. The biggest problem I see with replacing Howard with Tristan is moving Howard. He has a no trade clause and I can't see many decent teams being willing to bring in Howard's personality or contract.

04 May 2017 05:14:23
I know a sign and trade works differently than a normal trade, but nonetheless, it must still benefit both sides. And in my opinion, Thompson is not a gain for the Hawks. We clearly do not agree on these players values. I think you're crazy for suggesting that the Hawks declining this trade would be "insane" on their part. I see Thompson as player who just shot a career low in ft% and has seen it dip 3 consecutive seasons. He also just finished his sixth NBA season, but his best two years were his 2nd and 3rd years. In my eyes, that is declining play. Howard averages 2.5 rebounds (38% more) more than Thompson. Howard was not a locker room problem whatsoever this year. He makes one comment after the season and everybody goes nuts. The negative stigma around Howard is what plagues him the most. I think the media just blows his situation out of proportion sometimes. If people just look at his on-court contributions, then they'll see he's still a solid NBA center. I agree he is probably overpaid but I'd still choose him over Thompson any day. Howard problaby has 2-4 more years of averaging a double-double. Once he falls short of those marks, that's when I'd give up on him.

06 May 2017 15:37:08
Okc isn't giving up abrines and sabonis maybe abrines bc sabonis can learn from love they are just getting love so kanter grant and Christian would make since.

06 May 2017 17:05:31
This make no sense why would OKC send 3 or 4 players along with draft picks to Detroit when they aren't trading for them and B. Love only has a couple years left in the league.

03 May 2017 02:08:10
NYK - DET - ATL

NYK get: Dennis Schroeder and Tobias Harris

DET get: Dwight Howard, THJ, NYK 1st Dp 2017, and ATL 1st Dp 2017

ATL get: Andre Drummond, Joakim Noah, and Reggie Jackson

03 May 2017 04:41:25
Let me get this right. So are you saying the Hawks should trade 3 of their 4 best players and a draft pick for Drummond (who is just a younger more expensive Howard) and two of the worst contracts in the NBA?

03 May 2017 05:12:20
For the love of all things sacred that is bad. ATL is just getting hosed.

So the Knicks get two of the better young players in the league and get rid of Noah for a mid lottery pick?

2 possible Dwight Howard trades

• 1. Hornets-Hawks

Hornets get Dwight Howard, Thabo Sefolosha (sign and trade), and #19 pick

Hawks get Cody Zeller and MKG


• 2. Pistons-Hawks

Pistons get Dwight Howard, #19 pick, and Cavs 2019 1st

Hawks get Andre Drummond.

Most likely no to number 1, definite no to number 1.

03 May 2017 01:03:04
The first one isn't terrible, but the 2nd one is bad.

03 May 2017 03:25:14
Normally I'd say yes to the second trade but dwight and Stan Van Gundy? Not happening.

03 May 2017 04:46:02
Okay then what if the first one is changed to Zeller, Lamb, and #41 pick to Hawks for Howard and #19 pick.

03 May 2017 06:39:32
If it's Lamb vs. MKG, then there's no need for ATL to include pick #19. Lamb has almost no value right now.

BOS: A Drummond

DET: A Bradley, '18 1st (top 10 protected) & '20 1st (lottery protected)

PG: Thomas
SG: Fultz
SF: Crowder
PF: Horford
C: Drummond

02 May 2017 13:56:40
Couple of things here:
1. Boston has only a 25 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick, so Fultz is far from a guarantee.
2. Hard to see what the 2020 draft will be like, but there is little need for protection on Boston's 2018 pick because the possibility of the Celtics being a lottery team next year are slim. Boston's 2018 No. 1 will probably be in the 26-30 range.

This is probably the best Drummond trade I've seen, but I'm still not sure if I like him on the C's. He's an elite rebounder, but for that contract, I need more than just rebounding. He's not a good defender, and he's completely lost on offense. If he had two of the three, that contract is OK, but only the rebounding isn't worth that price.

Thank you for posting a realistic Drummond trade.

02 May 2017 18:22:30
Does Bradley play the point on Detroit with kcp already there?

02 May 2017 18:36:14
It's realistic for everyone not in Detroit.
Pistons will get more for Drummond than that.

Jordan, Cousins will be 30 million a year guys and are older than Drummond.

Soxfan. Only Cousins had more ppg than Drummond.
Drummonds stat line was 13.6/ ppg- 13.8/ rpg- 1.1/ a- 1.5/ st- 1.1/ blocks. Outside of the dimes those are good stats for a big man. Andre is 23 and under contract for 3 more years

Would love to see Boogie in green but very doubtful.
Drummond makes the most sense if they want to go with an established big.

With Bosh gone Heat lack front court depth. With great perimeter depth, this trade give Heat good balance team in for years to come. Jackson has failed up to now and Knicks have more urguncy to win sooner than the heat. Ny needs to create cap space to add more 2 more stars.

Heat get Porzingis Hernangomez Leuer Thomas
Bulls get Noah Harris Jackson 14th
Knicks get Whiteside McRoberts Ellington
Pistons get Rondo Wade

Jackson for Arthur Nelson

Interesting, small other pieces would likely be involved though.
