For Mr. Pugh

OKC get Melo O'Quinn Favors Teletovic

In case George Melo Westbrook bolt, OKC has all the cap space to retool or all cap space to keep them together.


NY get Adams Henson Korver

Building a frontcourt depth that will haunt smaller teams with shot blocking, rebounding and defense.


Utah get Kanter Singler

Utah twin towers look will give Jazz different offensive option beyond Hayward with a creative pg like Rubio.


Bucks get Burks Kuzminkas
Bucks improve future cap space to decide on who to resign or bring 1 more star FA for Giannis

Dellavedova for Leonard
Blazers are overload at pf only have 1 backup unreliable backup. Bucks will need bigs who can shoo t and run.

Brogdon/ Burks/ Lewis
Middleton/ Payton/ Vaughn
Giannis/ Snell/ Kuzminkas
Maker/ Parker/ Wilson
Monroe/ Leonard/ Hawes.

I could understand Thunder trying to get Melo but not that big a fan of them dealing Adams to do so (O'quinn is a solid backup and Favors is good but he hasn't been healthy in awhile) . If they did I think they should minimally getting more back (you forgot about Patrick Patterson who is their incumbent starting pf and a very solid stretch 4 that can defend some) .

Although Knicks would probably prefer a perimeter player adding Adams would be a great return for the Knicks and Henson although a little redundant wouldn't be a terrible addition. Isn't Korver still on Cavs?

Utah is currently employing the twin towers approach and has done so for past few years with guys like Okur, Millsap, Jefferson, Favors, Gobert and even Kanter. They traded Kanter away and I doubt they want him back since he was very unhappy and basically requested a trade. Favors is a better player than him and paid less so I don't understand why they'd give him and a solid role player in Burks up for two inferior players.

Bucks are in the luxury so I could understand them making this move from that perspective but it isn't going to clear enough cap space to make a significant difference. If they waived rights of their FA they could have close to 20 mill but I doubt they let Parker go without seeing his market first in RFA so that would lower them to about 10 mill if they kept his rights. Not really enough to add another star unless they worked out some funky sign and trade offer.

Jaw meant McDermott not korver. did drop the ball on Patterson no need for teletovic. Kanter being healthier is a big edge over Favors and a Post scorer something neither favors or gobert is. Thunders sight on being able to keep Westbrook, value more than keeping either big. Keeping him is based on keeping George Melo adding 4th big name could make difference. Cap is 104. Currently 2018 is at 71mil with my trade 64 mil. Now dump Burks Dellavedova with Parker for expiring of Wade. Bulls consider taking a chance to fill their void at SF with Parker. Kidd is equally good in front office as coach as he was as player. Wish I say the same for players. ISIAH.

Appreciate the shoutout! Just can't see us moving Adams unless it's a younger, more locked in star. He's very valuable.

It's moot, since Anthony is refusing to go to any team except Houston.

Take out Adams and McDermott and add Grant and some other small things and that's a good deal.
