Sixers own that LAL pick.

21 May 2017 07:39:40
So Magic give up
Ross, 33rd pick
For
Deng, Mcw and 38th pick

They add a older player on a bad contract a pg with very similar flaws to Payton and a lesser 2nd rounder. Dillusional lakers fan strikes again.

21 May 2017 08:13:49
I'm confused why Magic are even in this trade. Lakers getting Ross just makes it more difficult for them to sign Lowry and George. They also aren't getting much of anything for giving him up and taking on Deng's bad contract.

19 May 2017 16:57:13
Bulls celtics and sixers.

Sixers trade okafor, three pick, and Covington
Sixers get first pick

Celtics trade Avery Bradley and number one pick
Celtics get jimmy butler.

Bulls trade jimmy butler
Bulls get three pick, okafor, Covington and Avery Bradley.

Bulls completely rebuild

Sixers get fultz who they probably need to complete their rebuilding efforts.

Celtics finally get a star player so they have a realistic chance to go to the finals. Right now there the celtics have zero chance to beat cavs or golden state. They need to make a move if not this one.

19 May 2017 21:25:16
I would definitely prefer just getting #1 and Bradley over Okafor, Covington and #3 if I were the Bulls. 76ers would need to add their or Lakers 2018 pick for me to justify involving them in trade (can keep covington and Okafor in that scenario) . Celtics being how they are will probably draft Fultz and try and sign Hayward before trying to make a move for Butler.

18 May 2017 08:16:45
Celtic Pipe Dream
If Boston thinks it is unlikely to sign a top tier FA and they don't trade for a star.

Boston / Sac

IT, Crowder, Jackson, and Zeller for WCG and picks 5, 10 and Gay for salary purpose, ops out, let him walk.

Boston / ORL

Smart, Nader for #6

Draft
#1 Jackson
#5 Fox
#6 Ntilikina
#10 Z Collins

Boston Lineup

PG Rozier, Fox
SG Bradley, G Green, Ntilikina
SF J Brown, Jackson
PF Horfold, Mickey, Yub.
C WCS, Zizic, Z Collins

This would load Celtics up with even younger and more athletic talent that can play multiple positions they can develop while staying competitive until the Decline of CLE and GSW.

18 May 2017 09:21:02
Makes no sense all kinda awful for every team.

18 May 2017 15:06:59
This would make the celtics go from eastern finals to a non playoff team.

18 May 2017 17:38:36
Celtics aren't getting any of those returns. Smart isn't a starting caliber pg and doesn't have upside of any of top 5 pgs in this draft. He isn't close to being worth a lotto pick let alone #6 especially as an expiring contract.

Similarly Kings are rebuilding they aren't going to give up two lotto picks and a solid prospect for IT who is an expiring contract and Crowder who is good but not great. You are delusional to think they'd get that type of return on IT let alone from a team like Kings that even with him would be awful.

With the importance of a good point guard and 3pt shooting in today's league Celtics would be foolish to not select Fultz with #1 pick (if they really wanted Jackson they should at least trade down) . Tatum likely wouldn't be available at #5 so I'd take Issac there instead.

Minnesota's dream off season

Pek gets medically waived

They let all of their free agents walk and decline all options

3 way trade

Knicks get Rubio ( They had interest during the season, but can be replaced by anyone with cap space)

Timberwolves get Butler

Bulls get Aldrich, Dunn, Dieng, Minn 17 1st, 19 1st, a NY lottery protected 18 1st, and Muhammad.

They end up with roughly 60 million in cap space.

Sign Paul to the max

Millsap to 4 year 80 to 100 million

Find a cheap back up big

sign Korver or another shooter for 2 years at the MLE

Fill out the roster with cheap veterans

Pg Paul/Jones or Lavine

Sg Wiggins/ Lavine or Korver/Bjelica

Sf Butler/ Korver/Bjelica

Pf Millsap/ Hill

C Towns/ fa

If they could get Butler selling Millsap and Paul on this being a team that could beat the Warriors wouldn't be hard.

15 May 2017 14:42:44
Accept lavine, Towns, and Wiggins options* all others decline.

15 May 2017 14:48:08
If Twolves could swing these moves they'd be a scary team for awhile by adding 3 all-stars and not completely mortgaging their future.

Rubio to the Knicks for a lotto protected 2018 pick isn't bad value for Rubio in fact some may argue its a bit low for a guy that is only 26, on a reasonable contract and who had a very strong final 2 months.

Bulls would probably want Wiggins in a deal for Butler however, this offer isn't terrible. Dunn although he didn't show much this past season and is already 23 still has some upside, Dieng and Muhammad are both youngish but can provide solid production already, Minnesota's 2017 will enable them to add a high level prospect (although may be another point guard), Knicks pick probably wouldn't convey for a few years but still a first and Minnesota's pick would likely be very late but still a first. Aldrich doesn't add much but his contract isn't terrible.

Overall, don't think its quite enough to convince Bulls to move Butler but think its getting close. Probably makes sense to include LaVine and take out Dunn from a value and salary cap point of view.

Adding Paul and Millsap for most teams would be a double-edged sword due to their age but since Minnesota has some of the best young players in the league and would have Butler in his prime in this scenario so it kinda makes it worth it They'd be able to compete heavily now (as Thibs wants) and still likely be able to contend through the final years of their contracts and could refuel through FA once their deals expire. Twolves would encounter some cap issues for 3 years however with Butler, Wiggins and LaVine (if it was Dunn instead he'd be on rookie deal still) all free agents due the max (Wiggins and LaVine would make significantly less due to their years in league) in 2018-19 and Towns would be due max in 2019-2020. Twolves would be able to retain them all since they'd have their Bird rights but they'd be in luxury until Paul and Millsaps deals expire in 2021-2022. 3 seasons of luxury cap would be tough to stomach for a small market team like Twolves but with that lineup they'd be basically guaranteed multiple titles and Warriors wouldn't be the same team and Lebron wouldn't be as dominant.

In 2021-22 Twolves would still have Wiggins, Towns, LaVine (if he isn't traded, Dunn otherwise) and Butler all still under contract. They probably still wouldn't have much cap space but with Wiggins, Towns and LaVine entering their primes and Butler only 31 that lineup would still be able to compete for titles.

15 May 2017 16:45:23
Depending on where knicks land after lotto I would consider Rubio. Because NY is a Lance Thomas or O'Quinn away from landingtop tier maxed out contract for PG. I rather trade Noah and Pick for Rondo and sign Milsap.

15 May 2017 17:48:30
Shizze with current state of the Knicks and the way they've treated Melo, why would any max level player want to go there?

07 May 2017 14:00:04
Sixers/warriors/nets trade

Sixers trade:jahlil okafor, own 2017 1st round pick.
Sixers receive: klay thompson.

Warriors trade: klay thompson
Warriors receive: brook lopez, sean Kilpatrick.

Nets trade:Brook lopez, sean Kilpatrick.
Nets receive: jahlil okafor, 76ers 2017 pick.

07 May 2017 14:37:09
Golden State is not going to give up Thompson for a backup center and a draft pick.

07 May 2017 15:39:54
In what world is brook lopez a backup center? Also the trade eases their cap room to sign steph to a max and add depth o their bench which they badly need regardless of how well they're playing this season. Klay has his ring why not raise his stardom?

07 May 2017 16:21:19
lopez is a starting center, but you are 100% wrong on everything else.

Lopez makes $5M more than Thompson, how is that helping to ease cap space? Once they re-sign Curry, they're won't be enough cap space to add to the bench, and based on the way they play basketball, Klay is a much better fit than Lopez anyways.

07 May 2017 18:14:38
Lopez is not a backup by no means. 20/ 5/ 2 w/ 1.7 blk. is definitely not backup stats.

More like Nets are not going to give up Lopez for a backup ctr.
Although they would love to have that pick.

07 May 2017 19:55:25
The Warriors wouldn't move Klay for Lopez. There is no salary cap relief in this for them and is Lopez even a good fit for them? If he were an athletic big that could run the floor, it would make more sense, but he would slow dowm their offense. Not to mention they could get way more than Lopez for him.

07 May 2017 21:06:36
He was meaning the sixers don't get Thompson for okafor and a pick. Okafor is a back up center.

27 Apr 2017 13:22:14
Boston: B Griffin+ P Pierce
trade: Horford+ 1rnd pick Nets 2018+ 1rnd pick clippers 2019

Indiana: 1rnd pick 2018 Nets+ 1rnd pick Clippers 2019 (unprotected)J Crawford+W Johnson
Trade: P george

Clippers: A Horford+ P George
trade: B Griffin+ W Johnson+ Crawford

Boston can sign G Hayward and draft Fullz (So they can trade Bradley and Crowder for a center)

Indy go's tanking. They will propably get the 1st and 2nd pick in the 2018 draft

The Clippers can challenge Golden State

27 Apr 2017 13:35:27
Clippers turn Griffin into Horford and George? If clippers could get George so easily then Boston would just bypass the Clippers and get him themselves. I believe Boston has close to enough cap space to sign Griffin outright so not certain how likely it is for them to give up significant assets to get him.

27 Apr 2017 14:26:23
The Celtics can draft Fultz (maybe) and sign Hayward without the other parts of that deal. Pierce is cooked and Griffin is starting to break down, so Horford and those picks would be a gross overpay.
As jaw says, a more-direct route to acquire George would be the best plan. And if George won't commit to Boston long-term, Butler is the fallback.

27 Apr 2017 17:53:21
Pierce is going back to Boston this year whether it's at the deadline or at the end of the year. Boston won't waste picks on Blake. But I do believe that they will try for Butler again in a couple of months as they want a wingman, he's proved his worth so far in the playoffs Horford is their PF. But if they do sign Hayward They better use those picks for a true big man. IT is remarkable but he, IMO, will be traded by this time next year unless he sign's an extension south of the max. Bottom line is we won't know anything till the summer. We all can speculate but we honestly don't know what these teams will do.

27 Apr 2017 19:29:11
Pierce is retiring. He will sign a one day deal to retire as a Celtic, but he's not playing again. As far as moving Horford for Griffin. I think the last few games should show people Horford's true value. He's not a stat stuffer, but he does all the little things that add up to wins. Griffin is still a good player, but I'm not moving Horford plus just to get him. If he really wants to be in Boston, they can sign him. And as others have said, if that package gets George, I'd put it together without the Clippers.

05 Apr 2017 05:42:45
Utah Jazz are good but not great. I think they should be aggressive this offseason to first off ensure they keep Hayward and to make them a true contender. They have best defensive center, an all-star in Hayward and solid role players around them.

I think they should try to bring back Millsap who would give them another all-star and his game would compliment Gobert well. To do this they'd have to decline Diaw's option, then:

Jazz get: Levert, Hollis-Jefferson

Nets get: Favors, Burks, Johnson, Jazz 1st (25), Warriors 1st (via Jazz, 30th)

Probably an overpay for Jazz (maybe Nets throw in Kilpatrick too) but they get two young versatile players on cheap contracts and clear the cap space to add Millsap. They'd still have cap space to sign Hill and then can use Haywards bird rights to resign him.

Things would get quite expensive tho since I think Hood is due an extension next summer. Maybe go after Gallinari instead who will be a bit cheaper.

27 Mar 2017 03:01:02
Suns get Porzingis Hernangomez Noah
Knicks get Chandler Henson 3rd 51st
Bucks get Knight

To assemble this roster it worth adding Noah for 3 yr 60 mil more. Suns with time will be better Warriors in 1-2 yrs

Bledsoe/Ulis/M.Morris-33or
Booker/Dudley/Barbosa
Chriss/Warren/Jones
Porzingis/Williams/Bender
Len/Hernangomez/Noah

As much as Porzingis is untouchable, I would trade him if suns get the 2nd pick to draft Ball.

Ball-2nd/Mason-58/Randle
Lee/Thornwell-43rd/Baker
Tatum-5th/Thomas/Kuzminskas
Melo/O'Quinn/N.Hayes-51st
Chandler/Henson/Plumlee

Bucks get shoot 1st pg they don't have with Dellavedova.

Knight/Dellavedova/Williams-Goss-48
Middleton/Brogdon/Vaughn
Giannis/T.Jones/Beasley
Parker/Teletovic/Giles-17
Monroe/Maker/Hawes

27 Mar 2017 05:29:36
I disagree completely. Why would Knicks give up Porzingis a young established player with immense upside for Ball who has a slim chance of being better than Porzingis is and could end up being a complete bust (I think its unlikely but regardless he hasn't proven anything in the NBA and who knows how his shot form transitions) . Its a high risk gamble without an appropriate reward. I could understand it if Porzingis was in his late 20s and in his prime already but dude is only 21, a freakish 7ft 3 and has skill and touch at his size unlike anyone has ever seen. With the Knicks pick falling they can easily add a solid pg prospect, not a Fultz or Ball but a Smith or Fox who should pair nicely with Porzingis down the line.

That Suns team would be good but not better than the Warriors good in 1-2 years. I think they could put together a much more convincing offer for Porzingis (no reason for them to have a guy like Bender buried on their bench he needs playing time to develop) but I really don't see a scenario where Knicks would deal Porzingis unless a team threw the kitchen sink at them.

27 Mar 2017 08:49:50
If this is how it plays out the Knicks would be better off trading melo for what they can hopefully a semi decent pick or guard etc and partnering Tatum and Porzingis and then putting in a bid for a rim protector or like Noel that would be a good young frontcourt.

27 Mar 2017 14:17:24
Agreed Jaw. I am not saying Porzingis is a guarenteed MVP candidate. But after 2 years, you know what you are getting. Absolutely a franchise cornerstone. Guy plays both sides, rebounds, and brings a skill set that is extremely desireable for a big man.

Why would you trade this in hopes of finding someone that could be similar? You have it. build around it. All these trades for porzingis are nonsense. If we can learn anything from the sixers, its trusting in a long term rebuild process. Once you identify the key parts, you don't get rid of them, simply to get rid of a contract. The knicks aren't winning a championship any time soon, so play it out. Once those contracts come off the books. GREAT.

27 Mar 2017 16:04:50
And by similar, I mean as far as being a top level franchise cornerstone. Clearly different positions, but Porzingis is the exact type of player you can build a team around. that's the best the knicks could hope for by trading him for Ball. and there is absolutely no guarentee ball will result in that.

27 Mar 2017 21:36:54
I really like Porzingis, but the Knicks should consider that trade.
Dumping Noah's contract and receiving a great prospect is worth a lot.

And that Suns team would be great, Booker and Prozingis can challenge GS in two or three years.

28 Mar 2017 01:28:34
Hopefully Knicks keep loosing position themselves for Fox. Porzingis very good his length concerns me with injuries, but Ball makes everyone better around something Melo struggled with. Porzingis if he stay healthy could make Knicks better not like intangible Ball does. Ball has Lebron, Magic and kidd qualities. NY never had that.

15 Mar 2017 08:51:56
Sixers Offseason Moves:

Draft:
- Malik Monk

Sign:
- Andre Iguodala - 3yrs- 45M (Option for 3rd year)
- Patty Mills - 4yrs - 40M (Option for 4th year)
- Roy Hibbert (or Mcgee) - 1yr - 3M

Team:
PG - Mills, TJ, Bayless
SG - Monk, Stauskas, Luwawu
SF - Iggy, Covington, Henderson
PF - Simmons, Saric, Holmes
C - Embiid, Okafor, Hibbert

Sixers probably overpay Iggy and Mills, but the two offer great experience and leadership and fit well with their young stars. The key for now is to develop Simmons and Embiid. Iggy is a great defender, good shooter and playmaker. Mills is a knock-down shooter and will play well with Simmons. Sixers need a cheap defensive 7ft center b/c Embiid's health can't be trusted. Sixers use the rest of their picks on young players from Europe and stash them there for now. Saric can win 6th man of the year. Deep roster and strong bench (bench is basically their starting lineup which almost beat GSW). If healthy this team probably makes the playoffs.

15 Mar 2017 11:37:47
I think its believable moves although I think Patty Mills may take more money to get him out of SA and Iguodala may not be quite so expensive with Warriors out of the running unless Durant takes a 5 mill paycut and him already being 33.

It will be interesting to see how Monk fairs at sg with his size defensively, I ultimately think he'd be best off at point guard for this reason (point guard defensively but would play off-ball offensively with Simmons running the show from sf/ pf) .

15 Mar 2017 20:30:23
Saric is a starter right now it's not how he fits but how Simmons fits with Saric and Embiid who were killing it together they are proven. But Saric and Simmonds could play together with the right shooting backcourt to balance out their front court.

18 Mar 2017 23:03:16
Considering all the nice things you said about Iguodala and Mills, you sure don't want to pay them for those skills!

01 Mar 2017 07:47:46
GSW

Cut Mcadoo
Sign Calderon
Sign Mike Scott
Sign JSullinger
Send Jones and Looney to DLeague

Curry/ Livingston/ Calderon
Klay/ Clark/ McCaw
KD/ Iggy/ Barnes
Dray/ West/ Scott
Zaza/ McGee/ Sullinger

Put more shooters around the stars. I know everyone loves McAdoo but he honestly probably has no role in the playoffs.

01 Mar 2017 13:23:09
Durant injury is karma.

01 Mar 2017 17:53:42
Durant's injury was just a basketball play started by Gortat and ended up with KD limping of the floor.

02 Mar 2017 04:39:38
Why is it karma? It's not like he went on sports center to say he was going to south beach.

27 Feb 2017 03:00:28
Boston off season:

A Johnson will be off the books.
J Jerebko will be off the books.
J Young off the books.
K Olynyk off the books.
T Zeller non guaranteed..
Salary projected to be 72 +/-..

If Golden State wins this year Is it possible Durant (opt out after this yr.) could come to Boston?
They have enough to sign him to a max deal or a possible S/T which will give them an extra yr..
Plumlee
But then you have IT4 that will get 180 million max deal after next year, as well as A Bradley...

If KD isn't in the future then Butler will be, or not..

Trade for M Plumlee..
Re-sign Jerebko.

27 Feb 2017 03:32:26
You think Durant would leave GS after one year if they win a ring? That doesn't make sense to me.

Plumlee is an RFA this offseason. and he'll be fairly expensive (4 years 75-100 million) .

27 Feb 2017 03:44:21
Also don't think it's an absolute lock that Ainge gives IT a max deal. He'll be 29 when it begins, will be making $40mm when he's 33. His size or lack thereof will become more of an issue as he ages. They are already paying Horford lots of dough on backside of his career. Think they hope to draft Fultz and see what he's made of before making that decision.

27 Feb 2017 04:26:57
Nobody knows what will happen. All I'm saying is he liked Boston and it's not impossible that he couldn't do that. He'd be the MAN in Boston
If a Durant would come to Boston IT14 would take take less to be a part of something that many players think of but can't be. A Championship, with the best team in NBA with the richest History of them all . Anything is a possibility.

27 Feb 2017 04:58:01
I think when IT4's contract expires he should only sign a 2yr max deal with Boston.

27 Feb 2017 06:05:04
He won't do a 2 yr. contract because the future salary cap will not be going the way they have the past 2 yrs. It will level out. But will he take a back loaded contract to win in the next 2 years. He'll still be good in 4 years, he's small and lean and will last longer than a much bigger player, unless of course an injury prevents that.
Drafting a Fultz or a Ball could make him dispensable. Smart was drafted as a PG but his real value is at the 2 position as he can cover anyone and can play 1-4.
Bradley I would think could be moved next year but could also resign as his injury history would make him a non max contract.
I don't see Plumlee getting 75-100. Possible but doubtful unless he signs with a bad team.
I see him maybe 50-65 max, he's under contract next season for 3.3 so he'd he could be had for one season, not to mention Denver has Nikola.

27 Feb 2017 06:08:50
Thomas would be a fool to only sign a two year deal. He needs to take all he can. With his size and style, he can't leave anything on the table.

27 Feb 2017 06:25:00
Sure there is a chance Durant signs with Boston as he was interested last summer but Its not a very likely scenario. It'll be interesting to see what Boston does with IT. He certainly is a great player and his play now dictates a large payday for him (he isn't a player that has made a ton of money over his career) but its going to be difficult committing that much money to him. I think if Boston can swing a deal for George, Butler or can sign Hayward they may just go all in for a championship and embrace the luxury tax. Otherwise, it only makes sense for them to consider letting him get his payday elsewhere and building around Fultz, Ball or Smith (depending on how their lottery goes) . They could also resign Smart instead who is younger and cheaper.

27 Feb 2017 18:04:42
He absolutely is not going through all this nonsense of last off season, to go to GS for 1 year. Win a ring, then go to Boston, which is less talented. It makes ZERO sense. First, he may have liked Boston, but he clearly liked GS more. Second, why would he decide to leave a championship team, that realistically can win another 3 or 4 championships. to go to the Celtics, which haven't gotten to the finals in about a decade and don't clearly seem to be a championship favorite with him. GS would still be better.

No one knows what the future may hold. True. But we all know durant isn't one and done in GS to go to boston. that's just nonsensical.

28 Feb 2017 03:46:00
Hamburger, like I said, you never know. Your assumption does make some sense in the fact that GS is built with option of going out and signing pieces in the near future with plenty of cap room to sign a couple of max contracts in consecutive years or make worth while trades. It's possible that KD doesn't even like his tenure in GS, after all, Green is a pain the ass.

28 Feb 2017 17:52:12
Glad to see I got the bakers dozen on unbelievable.
Now if I could only get a bakers dozen at Dunkin Donuts.

28 Feb 2017 18:23:55
No bill. like I said. you don't know. but certain things you do. He likes GS more than Boston, thus he chose it. GS is FAR better than Boston. And the dude left to win a championship. Your thought is he is going to leave after winning a championship because "ya never know" or because Green is a pain in the ass? Right.

He isn't going anywhere. Curry and Durant are GS bound. If anything, Thompson will be traded to save cap space.

23 Feb 2017 18:10:30
Last second five-team monster trade idea:

Clippers in: E. Mudiay, G. Harris, J. Brown, K. Faried, A. Johnson, T. Zeller, R. Rondo, 2017 Nuggets 1st, 2017 Celtics 1st (with swap rights), and 2018 Nets 1st
Clippers out: C. Paul, B. Griffin, D. Jordan, R. Felton, B. Bass, and A. Anderson

Bulls in: A. Bradley, W. Chandler, D. Favors, R. Felton, B. Diaw 2017 Jazz 1st, and 2017 Warriors 1st
Bulls out: J. Butler, T. Gibson and R. Rondo

Celtics in: J. Butler and D. Jordan
Celtics out: A. Bradley, A. Johnson, T. Zeller, J. Brown, 2017 Celtics 1st (with swap rights), 2018 Nets 1st

Nuggets in: G. Hill, B. Griffin, and A. Anderson
Nuggets out: E. Mudiay, G. Harris, W. Chandler, K. Faried, and 2017 Nuggets 1st

Jazz in: Chris Paul, T. Gibson, and B. Bass
Jazz out: G. Hill, D. Favors, B. Diaw, 2017 Warriors 1st, and 2017 Jazz 1st

23 Feb 2017 18:48:25
Can't follow this.

23 Feb 2017 21:26:58
I stopped reading after 5 team trade.

22 Feb 2017 17:21:55
Boston: Okafor+ 1rnd pick sac 2019

Philly: Olynyk+ 1rnd pick Nets 2017

Boston buys time in this scenario.
They can try to get KD and/or G Hayward and/or B Griffin. If they fail to land a superstar, they still have two potential 1 overall picks to trade for guys like PG13 or J Butler, who can become unhappy and who wanted to be traded.
Okafor's stock is low for the moment, but he should be a starter and he still has potential.

C: horford
PF: B griffin
SF:Crowder/ J Brown
SG: G Hayward/Bradley
PG: IT/ Smart
This team could challenge the Cavs and Golden state

Philly can fasten the rebuilt after years tanking. They can land the 1st, 2nd and 4th pick (Nets,sac(or philly) and Lakers pick.
So in an ideal scenario they can draft Fullz, J Jackson and Monk

C: Embiid/ Noel
PF: B simmons/ Saric
Sf: J Jackson/ covington
Sg: Monk
Pg: Fullz
This could be a scary team in a few years.

I like this.

22 Feb 2017 18:01:16
Okafor's value now is mid to late first-rounder.
No way Celtics give up the Nets pick for so little.

22 Feb 2017 18:08:17
Lmao i don't see boston giving the nets pick up for anyone on the sixers much less okafor. We have already been through this every team knows okafor is nothing more then an average scorer, and we all know philly wants to get read of him because his value keeps dropping. If you guys really thought he could be special you wouldn't be trading him.

22 Feb 2017 19:34:59
This is horrible for the Celtics. Nets pick worth way more than Okafor, and even though the Kings are a mess there are no guarantees on a pick so far away.

22 Feb 2017 19:34:59
Oh. I like this. I wonder why.

This is flat out stupid.

22 Feb 2017 19:59:07
You're right burger, of course a sixers fan would like this.

Is there any chance boston doesn't take fultz or ball with pick 1, if they are lucky enough to get it? They passed on the guard last year.

22 Feb 2017 22:24:26
Apparently Ainge is trying to avoid trading that Nets pick in a deal for Butler, which guarantees he would not give it up for Okafor.

23 Feb 2017 04:55:25
I can see them taking Ball, Last year he took Brown when he was projected 9th. So you never know with DA.

21 Feb 2017 18:19:38
So I will take T. Zeller, T. Rozier ,and 2017 Minnesota 2nd round pick from boston for A. Bogut.
Mavs can trade T. Zeller in draft time to team who need salary cap for offseason, while mavs pick up young player . Team like GSW, LAC, OKC, Wizards

15 Feb 2017 12:05:43
I will take T. Zeller and Minnesota 2nd round pick for Bogut. Then trade D. Harris to Charlotte for J Lamb and 2017 2nd round pick. trade D Will to Utah for D. Exum and golden state 1st round pick or D Will and S Mejir to Milwaukee for John Henson, 2017 2nd round pick

15 Feb 2017 12:38:16
Boston could easily give 2 2nds this year maybe all three that it currently has to get it done.

15 Feb 2017 12:43:57
Just because you would take those deals doesn't mean the other team would.

15 Feb 2017 21:03:28
As a Celtics fan I'll even give you two second rounders in the upcoming draft. I like Zeller a lot, but he's very much a situational guy. He can have huge games, but it's very rare against the perfect matchup. Bogut would be a huge addition the way the C's are currently comprised. Then again, I thought Rozier and a 1st would be a good move for Ibaka.

12 Feb 2017 11:11:17
Knicks-Bulls-Jazz

Knicks get:
Rondo(waive), Valentine, Exum
17 Sac pick(top 10 pro), 17 Chi pick, and 17 Jazz or 17 Gsw pick

Bulls get:
Melo, O'quinn

Jazz get:
Lopez(better back up then diaw)

12 Feb 2017 12:14:42
I don't think you get three 1st round picks on this years draft, plus exum and valentine for melo. Just sayin.

12 Feb 2017 12:18:41
Melo is worth 1/ 3 of that return.

12 Feb 2017 13:13:40
Anthony is worth a mid-to-late first. About the same as Philly's Okafor.

12 Feb 2017 18:35:45
Another move as a Bulls fan I would hate to see is them trade for Melo. No logic in doing it, just like with Okafor. But it's another example of the joke that is called the Bulls front office.

12 Feb 2017 22:26:14
The reason bulls do it is butler wants melo and obv wade would love it. Plus their current roster is not good enough they need another scorer. Upon that I believe they'd do anything to get rid of Rondo. Jazz would do it because Lopez a defensive center which is perfect off the bench. He'd be more help in a playoff series then exum.

12 Feb 2017 04:47:55
Thunder just can't score withour russ on the floor THEY NEED SCORERS
Lakers have a solid group of scorers

Williams
Clarkson
Young
Robinson

and lakers receive
Andre Roberson
2017 first round pick

Russell westbrook/williams
Oladipo/Clarkson
Young/Grant
Sabonis/Robinson
Adams/Kanter

The defense that robinson gives okc is incredible and young has had a solid defending season and his shooting is incredible rn now the weight of offense is balanced throughout the bench and starters and this team can easily go 7 games with spurs maybe win a couple against GSW


Lakers recieve a young elite defender
In the draft Hart and Isaac are chosen
we trade deng
and play huertas as backup for playmaking

Russell/Huertas
Ingram/Hart
Roberson/Isaac
Randle/Nance
Zubac/black

12 Feb 2017 05:05:09
how is that unbelievable wtf lmaoooo.

12 Feb 2017 15:04:26
Idk teehee kk lol. Maybe. Ecause the salary going to the thunder is like 40 millions or more and the salary going to layers is what, 5? Heh lol omg. Also. Thunder give one player. Gain four. And keep all of them. Lol teehee.

So I'd prob say it's a terrible trade according to league rules.

And a terrible trade because they Lakers get ripped.

Perhaps that's why lol rofl omg hehehehe.

Warriors/Kings/Knicks:

Warriors get: Ty Lawson, Justin Holiday

Kings get: Patrick McCaw

Knicks get: Ian Clark

The Warriors solidify their only possible weakness: their bench.

The Kings and Knicks give up two guys who likely get a healthy pay raise from someone in the offseason. They each get younger in their guard depth.

09 Feb 2017 23:15:10
Weird, this front runner is Warriors fan and Cubbies fan, oops must be young. Sorry kid.

10 Feb 2017 02:23:20
Biggest pet peeve is when I get called a bandwagon Cubs fan. Always have been, always will be. Also, not at all a Warriors fan. I'm a Bulls fan.

10 Feb 2017 04:06:58
Also not sure why you think this is such a steal for the Warriors. They get 2 rental bench pieces, not multiyear stars.

09 Feb 2017 16:48:36
Magic get:
Javale Mcgee
Ian Clark
James Micheal Mcadoo

Warriors GetL
Mario Hezonja
Damjan Rudez
