What does LeBron want from a team? A chance to compete with Golden State. My guess is a team that has stars who can take some of the burden off LeBron. I think Minnesota fits what LeBron wants. If Minnesota's players were in LA, no doubt LeBron would want to play with them. But the only way LeBron can play with Towns and Butler is Minnesota.

So, LeBron opts in and Cleveland trades him and Kyle Korver to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins, Gorgui Dieng, and pick 20.

19 Jun 2018 12:54:05
it'd be interesting. I'm curious how the Cavs look at at Wiggins contract though. They might prefer a third team getting involved so that they can take back less salary.

19 Jun 2018 14:54:41
Lebron is not opting in. He has until June 29th to opt in or not. July 1st is the 1st day that you can technically speak with free agents. Lebron is expected to take a little while on his decision. I doubt he opts in. If so, he would not want to go to Minnesota.

Even if he did, this trade is not close to enough. Wiggins has lowered his trade value soooo much as of late. He was even offered straight up for Blake Griffin and the Clippers said no because nobody wants to take on his contract. it raises from 25 to 33 million each year over the next 5 years. Unless he's considered a superstar, it's a waste of cap room that could be used to sign an actual superstar.

19 Jun 2018 17:19:59
Gpack17. Wiggins was never offered for Griffin. The Clippers offered Griffin for Towns.

19 Jun 2018 17:47:21
LeBron wants one thing. CONTROL!

19 Jun 2018 18:19:32
@carl006 as far as what was reported to the media, yes. The clippers offered blake for towns and were rejected. I have heard from people in the clippers front office that the twolves rebuttled with wiggins for blake and were rejected. Do people really think that all of a sudden wiggins is being mentioned as being traded? He was being offered before, they were just being unrealistic.

19 Jun 2018 21:55:11
You have heard from people in the Clippers? Right. And not one leak to the media about that?

18 Jun 2018 09:21:09
Lakers got 61 to spend. If they stretch Deng they have 72 mil after they announce all free agents and will have 12 mil cap hold with 60 mil left if they want randle but here there keeping him.

Sign James and George 28 each. With 4 left for Noel. Mle on reddick for four years 34 mil. Signn randle to whatever it takes.
Ball
Reddick
George
James
Noel
Kuzma randle Hart and Ingram would be a strong bench.

Or rid randle use the 16 mil on Avery Bradley. Use mle on Evans for years 34 mil. Sign Noel with the other 4.4 exception.
Ball
Bradley
George
James
Noel
With Evans Hart Ingram and kuzma off bench would slaughter golden state. I would like to see Ball handle the rock and see how much king James can score. With shooters like Bradley and George. And a rebounder like Noel. Ball can guard Klay while Bradley chases around Curry. With George putting good d on Durant. James can relax on d guarding green with Noel on there starting center.

So this requires no trades just there willingness to sign with this great situation. That's y there so much speculation with Lakers because they can sign all the players to create a team that would beat golden state. With James and George joining the Lakers with 16 left and mle would be better then the cavs And thunder

18 Jun 2018 09:36:13
Best possible scenario maybe if we can sign James and George on a discount but i don't think it would happen.

18 Jun 2018 12:40:41
Ingram averaged 16 say he can put up 14 off the bench plus kuzma doing the same. Plus Evans and Hart all caple of averaging 10 plus points off bench with James averaging 27 George averaging 24 plus Bradley 16 and ball like 12 and 8. Plus Noel 7 and 12. Plus have solid defenders, this team be Scary. Point is what more help would they need so no needforr james and George to take less then 28 that is a discount.

18 Jun 2018 15:25:15
noel 4 mil and Reddick MLE, what are you talking about.

18 Jun 2018 19:59:48
Lebron and PG are not taking paycuts to play with guys that have only been in the league for a couple seasons and haven't proven anything. Either way, the math is way off on this one. If you have cap room, you do not get the full MLE worth 8 mill/ season. You will get a room mle for 4.3 mill/ season for 2 years tops.

17 Jun 2018 15:36:38
Multiple Kawhi deals:

Just having fun with a couple of deals, let me know which ones, if any, you like.

#1 - To GSW

Kawhi for Klay and Jordan Bell

Kawhi moves to the two, Warriors and Spurs would have to sign either after next season, Spurs get young C, and if healthy, Claw makes Warriors unstoppable.

#2 - To MIA

Kawhi for JJ, Bam and Justise

Miami loves star players, and they get one in Claw. Spurs take on two years of overpaid but solid James Johnson to get two potential building blocks in Winslow and Bam.

#3 - To POR

Kawhi for Harkless, Aminu, Collins, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Admittedly the worst player package, Spurs get only two solid rotation players and a young C with potential, but this is about picks and depth. Blazers tried their best to add a third star last year, but were unsuccessful. This year they get their guy.

4# - To LAC

Kawhi, Mills for Harris, Beverley, Johnson, pick 12

This is a popular rumour, and is one I like. Harris and Beverley are above average players who offer D and versatility. Johnson adds another shooter, and pick 12 brings a good rotation piece. Kawhi goes home, and Mills offers shooting at the 1. Yes, Clips dealt two stars last year, but I don’t believe it was for a rebuild, so adding a superstar while still keeping a lottery pick in this year’s draft is a win.

#5 - To BOS

Kawhi, Mills for Hayward, Brown

Both Claw and Gordon are coming off major injuries, so both teams are taking a risk. When healthy though, Kawhi is the better player, and Brown is needed to get this deal done. Mills salary matches, but also helps soften the blow should Smart not resign, or if Rozier is needed in a separate deal.

#6 - To NYK

Kawhi for Lee, Frank, Dotson, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Again, not a great player package, but Lee feels like a Spur, Frank and Dejonte are a defensive nightmare and two picks, including 9 brings quality youth. Sounds like Kawhi and his camp have at least a fleeting interest in playing in NY, and him with Zinger would be the foundation for the Knicks turnaround.

#7 - To UTA

Kawhi for Ingles, Thabo, O’Neal and 2018 1st

Claw with Mitchell, and Steiffel would be a scary threesome, though Jazz hesitate as this is the spot Claw is least likely to resign. Spurs get a really solid, underrated player on a good deal in Ingles, an expiring deal in Thabo and two young pieces.

#8 - To LAL

Kawhi for Ingram, Kuzma

Spurs don’t get pick 25, but also don’t take back Deng. Lakers give up two good building blocks, and keep 25 to try to tie to Deng for another trade.

#9 - To PHI

Kawhi for Saric, Covington and pick 10

Philly gets their star if LBJ doesn’t land there. Spurs get an underrated 3 and D guy, and two young quality pieces.

#10 - To CHI

Kawhi, pick 17 for Valentine, Portis, picks 7 and 22

Chicago speeds up the rebuild, adding Kawhi to Lauri and Kris while keeping a first in this year’s draft. Spurs get youth and two picks.

17 Jun 2018 15:54:11
Outside of the Celtics offer here, most of these seem pretty short.

19 Jun 2018 03:27:19
I think the most likely of these in order are LAC, LAL, CHI. You could add PHI to that if you switched Saric with Fultz.

14 Jun 2018 22:08:41
I want to take a look at the 76er's current situation and how to get past the Celtics to the finals.

1. TRADE:
Magic Receive Jarryd Bayless and #26 OVR 2018 draft pick.

76ers receive #41 OVR 2018 draft pick.

Thinking: Sixers are able to unload 8.576 million from their salary cap situation to be able to accommodate a max contract. Meanwhile the Magic are able to add a shooter that is still only 29. He's expensive for this year, but only has one year on his contract. He's better than Fournier and only half the price. In return for the extra salary, they're moving up 15 spots in the draft.

TRADE:
Cavaliers Receive Picks 10, 38, and 41
76ers Receive Pick 8

Thinking: Cavaliers begin to realize Dan Gilbert doesn't have the best relations with LBJ. It seems like a low ball offer, but mind yourself that the Cavs and Sixers are looking for two separate Archetypes. The Cavs should not worry about the Sixers or Knicks taking their big man they have their eyes on (with Porzingis and Embiid). In return for dropping two spots, they're put back into round 2 with options for cheap role players. **If this trade can't be completed than that's ok. I was trying to get the Sixers into the top 7 for Doncic, MPJ, Bamba, or Trae Young.**

Free Agency: ~39.5 million
Picking Up Team Options on McConnell and Holmes (1.6 mil each)

Plan A: Lebron James: I'd throw money at LBJ in hopes he'd teach the team how to win and perform in crunch time. The shortcoming of the Sixers was having a player they could turn to in the last 5 minutes in the game to take over. The weakest part of the team was the final quarter and this would work to solve it.

Plan B: Avery Bradley and Aaron Gordon: With around 36 million dollars to play with, I'd first throw money towards Avery Bradley. I think he's a much better fit. I'd be perfectly fine throwing 18-22 million towards Avery. He is the elite perimeter defender that they can use to put on the opposing guards on the Celtics, Warriors, and Rockets. He's a HUGE upgrade over JJ Reddick for this reason. Notice the athletic/strong guards dictated the playoff series with Boston. My other move would be trying to pry away Aaron Gordon or Julius Randle (if you can't pry them away, at least make the Lakers and Magic pay a pretty penny). That's the other element I think the Sixers are missing. Aaron Gordon can slide right in with Dario as backup power forward. I'd be willing to throw the remaining money at him. If I can't come up with the cap space to sign Aaron, I'd flirt the market for the package of Covington and the #8 pick (looking to move into 3-6 range).

Possible Starting Line Up:
PG: Markelle Fultz
SG: Avery Bradley
SF: Ben Simmons/Robert Covington
PF: Ben Simmons/Dario Saric
C: Joel Embiid

6th Man: Aaron Gordon
7th Man: TJ McConnell


My final analysis is that this team would have the shooting in Markelle and Avery to offset the inside game of Embiid and Simmons. The defense would be versatile with Bradley, Covington, Simmons, and Embiid. The height and athleticism on the inside wouldn't be changing much, so rebounding is still near the top of the NBA (Aaron Gordon doesn't hurt either).

Let me know what you guys think (if you like it I might try to fix another team)!

15 Jun 2018 00:50:12
Okay a few things
1. Aaron Gordon would start
2. Avery Bradley is nowhere near worth 18-22 million a year! If it’s a 1yr 15m deal then that would be okay. But if it’s a multi-year deal, it should be about 3yr 30m.

15 Jun 2018 00:56:50
You max off gordon to bench him? Lol.

15 Jun 2018 03:34:06
My philosophy is to have him lead the second team. You can experiment with putting him in the first lineup, but medically I didn't want to push him. Let him get comfortable (and use that Philly medical system) to ensure he's healthy long term.

Also, talking contracts, I would be looking to front load them. Avery Bradley in my eyes is worth every penny of 18 million. See if he'd bite for a contract where we take half his total salary this year and spread the rest over the next two years for flexibility when resigning Simmons and Fultz.

14 Jun 2018 11:50:00
Only AD trade to the Warriors that NOLA should even consider

Warriors get Anthony Davis and Alexis Ajinca

Pelicans get Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Jordan Bell, and a first round pick

I still wouldn't do this if I'm NOLA. AD is such a special talent and will likely take over as the best player in the world when LBJ declines. However, this is one of the best packages they could possibly get for him. Klay and Draymond are very valuable players who could keep the Pelicans relevant or be traded for high quality assets if they decided to re-build. The Dubs would have the best big 3 ever but would have depth issues around those three.

14 Jun 2018 13:22:28
If and when the Pels decide to deal Davis, it most likely will not be to a Western Conference team.

14 Jun 2018 13:30:07
In my opinion, the Pelicans would be getting fleeced in this trade. Klay has never had to play being the best shooter on a team. Without having to give Steph all the attention, teams can focus their energy on shutting down Klay. I see Klay as a mix between McCollum and Bradley without Steph. The value of the first round pick though would be hogwash.

If anything, there is an upgrade from Alexis to Jordan (however, the Pels lose height in this trade which may be concerning if they can't one up with DeMarcus) . I think it's a realistic trade, but not one worth making for the Pels!

14 Jun 2018 16:02:14
This is a classic example of a rumor mill trade idea started on GSW fan gages. The trade actually makes no sense for either team. I also agree w SuperCollider that you don't deal AD to a team that won back to backs.

14 Jun 2018 18:18:55
Chicago i bet he wants to come home and he has invested money in a company so idk if money would matter plus Chicago is a young and rising team with Lebron maybe going west would help us get closer when we had to battle with Lebron with rose noah.

14 Jun 2018 19:51:20
Money doesn't matter? Pels can offer a Supermax which exceeds anything AD can make elsewhere by 85 million. He's invested in several NOLA businesses also. He ain't leaving and the Pels ain't trading him.

14 Jun 2018 23:08:45
He wants to come play east is easier Plath to finals he’s from Chicago he’s invested a lot of money into a computer company.

14 Jun 2018 08:23:03
longshot but if Pelicans can pull this off they are going to match the Warriors

HOU/NOLA

HOU get Cousins (s&t)

NOLA get Paul (s&t)

NOLA/CHI/DEN

NOLA get Dunn & Faried (waive)
* save money and get back a young guard

DEN get Holiday & Asik (waive)
* finally get their point guard

CHI get Malik Beasley, Chandler, Plumlee, 14th & 2nd from NOLA
* take salaries to gain pick

NOLA trade Hill & future 1st to ATL for 2nd rd pick

then NOLA sign LBJ to max

sign Bellineli & Crawford
Brook Lopez MLE

NOLA new roster

Pg Paul/Dunn
Sg Moore/Crawford
Sf James/Bellineli/Miller
Pf Mirotic/Diallo
Ce Davis/Lopez/Ajinca

14 Jun 2018 16:12:14
If the Pels pulled that off they would build a statue of Dell Demps.

14 Jun 2018 23:29:35
Just resign cousins and trade Teague and some players for paul.

14 Jun 2018 05:34:22
If KD decides he needs a new challenge, what better than OKC

OKC gets Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala

Warriors get melo expires Steven Adams, Terrance Ferguson 1st round pick OKC 2019,2022

Warriors recoup some value and get An expiring contract


Thunder take on Iggy so Warriors can give Draymond and. Klay what there really worth

This is (s&t) only if he decides he wants to depart

13 Jun 2018 22:21:51
GSW-Pelicans

GSW-AD

Pelicans-klay thompson,draymond green,GSW 2018 1st R pick

14 Jun 2018 01:13:18
i think both teams say no.

14 Jun 2018 01:34:16
This is the only fair trade for AD from the Warriors I believe.

12 Jun 2018 11:42:18
Since everyone is talking about Lebron let's see the fit with the Bucks

- let Parker walk
- Snell and 17th to Brooklyn for Dinwiddie (since Nets are looking for picks)
- Henson and Wilson to Atlanta for future 2nd (Hawks replace Dedmon)
- Delly to any team with pg need and cap space (Sacramento, Dallas) for future 2nd

- sign Lebron 34,1 mil
- MLE exception to Dedmon
- Bi annual to Seth Curry
- Monroe exception to Hezonjia
- fill roster with minimum vets

Bledsoe/Dinwiddie
Brogdon/Brown/Curry
Middleton/Hezonjia
Giannis/Maker
Lebron/Dedmon

I know Bucks isn't the market for a King, but they are projected to be first in ticket earnings with the new arena and Giannis alone already makes them big TV money.

Basketwise, this team seems better than any team he can fix in LA and in my opinion better than King's fit in Philly.

This small ball under Bud's defence can be strong against GSW. Giannis will make things even with Durant, there will be real chance to stop these Warriors.

12 Jun 2018 14:47:38
Lebron is your Center?

12 Jun 2018 15:13:29
My bad, Giannis should be considered as center in that. But of course there is also Dedmon and Maker in that to play a lot as centers.

12 Jun 2018 17:53:00
The limitation of that team would be the reliance on your two star wings as your interior defense. They would get absolutely ground down by the end of the season.

12 Jun 2018 18:23:53
True, but this is more like the playoff team. During the regular season it would be Brogdon being 6th and Dedmon, Maker playing the most at center.

12 Jun 2018 03:25:08
S&T to break the NBA

Cavs receive: Iguodala, Livingston, Bell, Jones, Cook, Pick 28 (After draft), '19 & '21 1sts, Pick swap '20 & '22

GSW receive: Lebron (I think they can offer close to 30m with the out going salary.

Curry, Klay, Lebron, KD, Green

Might be the first 80 win team, if there isn't a lock out

*Disclaimer* - I don't think Lebron would ever consider this but just too funny not to think about

12 Jun 2018 05:24:18
Cavs wouldn’t go for it and unfortunately for Lebron and the Warriors in this situation they would need the Cavs corporation since the warriors are over the cap. And I don’t think they would do a deal with the Warriors without Green or Klay. if this were to ever happen.

12 Jun 2018 06:59:40
My view may be wrong, but I see S&Ts as a way to get something from nothing. If the only two options on the board are that trade and losing LBJ for nothing I think they would consider it.

12 Jun 2018 13:53:15
Most of the time you’re right BigWiz, but in this case Cleveland would want more to allow GS to build that team. If they accepted this trade, they’d be looked at incredibly poorly by every NBA fan, every other player, and every other owner. It would be bad.

11 Jun 2018 00:16:56
Dallas Mavs offseason moves


-Trade Kyle Collingsworth (non-guaranteed) to Philly for Jerryd Bayless and #26 pick

•Draft-
5: Mo Bamba
26: Josh Okogie
33: Bruce Brown

-Accept Dirk’s team option

-Sign Rodney Hood 3yr 36m
-Re-sign Doug McDermott 4yr 25m
-Re-sign Salah Mejri 1yr minimum

Lineup:
Pg. Smith, Barea, Bayless
Sg. Matthews, Okogie, Brown
Sf. Hood, McDermott, Finney-Smith
Pf. Barnes, Powell, Kleber
C. Bamba, Nowitzki, Mejri.

11 Jun 2018 14:25:28
Although the pick is at #26, why would the sixers give away a pick for Kyle Collinsworth. Collinsworth has no value what so ever.

12 Jun 2018 12:33:01
@jtubbs33 so they can get rid of Bayless without having to stretch his contract over 4 years. They don't need that pick since they have the 10th and 4 second rounders.

14 Jun 2018 13:49:31
Do 2 second rounders instead of #26 and PHI would take it in a heart beat. It gives DAL a better chance of finding a star too as it's two lottery tickets, instead of one.

09 Jun 2018 19:37:36
Celtics top the warriors..

Trade horford,rozier, and Tatum
for Davis

Trade Hayward and a first round pick for Leonard.

Sign Noel and keep smart, morris, still use some mle for green.

Irving
Brown
Leonard
Davis
Noel

09 Jun 2018 20:58:16
Dream on.

09 Jun 2018 21:42:48
Yes, it's a dream, but not a bad dream.

09 Jun 2018 22:33:08
If Boston dump a couple other contracts they can sign james also.
Irving
Brown
Leonard
James
Davis
This can be reality both trades benefit all teams. Especially the pelicans. This what Boston will do this year is make a big trade. Or they give up Hayward for George to opt in.

09 Jun 2018 07:46:37
Cle: K Thompson+ D Green

Golden State: LBJ+ Osman+ Zizic+ 8 pick+ 1rnd pick 2020


Little chance this is going to happen, but i think this could work for both teams.

Cleveland get a great return for LBJ, the player they can lose for nothing


Goldenstate get the best player in the league and assets, so they can get players on rookie (cheap) contracts

09 Jun 2018 14:30:38
Why would Golden State want to break up their core? Especially to a team they just blew out 4-0.

09 Jun 2018 16:12:15
Honestly did always think if Lebron left for GSW. It would benefit most the Cavs long term. I don’t get why the Warriors would do it because they can win without him but if they do want Lebron then both Green and Thompson would have to be dealt money wise. Warriors become unstoppable for the next 5 years and Cavs still have a decent team.

08 Jun 2018 18:13:33
Rumor: LeBron and PG to discuss teaming up this offseason

Why not in OKC? There’s not another team that they could team up on that wants to dethrone the Warriors more than OKC

OKC Thunder offseason moves:


-Trade Carmelo Anthony (can get buyout from Cavs) and Steven Adams to Cleveland for LeBron James (opt-in) and Steven Adams

-Trade Kyle Singler, Terrance Ferguson, and #57 pick to Kings for Skal Labissiere (Saves a lot of money)

•Draft-
53: Keenan Evans (2-way contract)

-Re-sign Paul George 1yr+1 max
-Re-sign Jerami Grant 3yr 22m
-Sign Jamal Crawford 1yr 3m
-Re-sign Raymond Felton 1yr 2m
-Sign Arron Afflalo 1yr minimum
-Sign Quincy Pondexter 1yr minimum

Lineup:
Pg. Westbrook, Felton, Evans (2-way)
Sg. Roberson, Crawford, Afflalo
Sf. George, Abrines, Pondexter
Pf. LeBron, Grant, Labissiere
C. Patterson, Thompson, Johnson.

08 Jun 2018 19:56:42
Cousins as C.

08 Jun 2018 20:31:40
Cant trade Melo with his permission. Cavs aren't rading lebron to lose money.

08 Jun 2018 20:36:19
The OKC small market has me doubt lbj going there. Cleveland, Miami, he's been consistent so far with that. His branding of his name is important to him.

08 Jun 2018 21:17:51
Cleveland needs serious young talent to be willing to sign and trade Lebron, while taking on significant salary. The best option for Cleveland if Lebron leaving is just getting out of the luxury. They're basically paying 3 or so dollars per 1 they take on in any trade for LEbron and it's going to be a full rebuild. Unless there is a third team for Adams, they don't have a reason to take on a really good, but slightly over paid big man.

08 Jun 2018 21:53:16
Cavs taking on adams for LBJ is like now go kick the warriors butt jmes.

07 Jun 2018 20:10:21
If KD wants to go back to Okc

Warriors trade - KD (s&t)
Thunder trade - PG (s&t)

Thunder trade - Melo
Nuggets trade - Chandler and Faried

Curry/Livingston
Thompson/McCaw
PG/Iggy
Green/Looney
Bell/McGee

Westbrook/Felton
Roberson/Ferguson
Chandler/Abrines
KD/Grant
Adams/Faried

08 Jun 2018 00:21:10
He just said he's staying with Warriors.

08 Jun 2018 03:01:51
Why would he want to go back to OKC, so him and Russ can butt heads again? Pretty sure there are 10-15 teams he would rather go to than the Thunder, with the Warriors being almost assuredly where he stays.

08 Jun 2018 03:14:35
Smh lmao.

08 Jun 2018 03:29:36
Nobody wants Melo.

08 Jun 2018 04:10:53
Durant isn't going back to okc I don't think.

07 Jun 2018 17:35:51
If sixers can move 18 of 44 mil salary cap of players out of the rotation. They would rather trade for Tim Hardaway than to resign 34 yr old Reddick to a long term contract. And Still bring 2 maxed deals.

sign George and Lebron 1 yr 30mil

Simmons/Fultz/McConnell
Hardaway/Bridges-10/Trier-60
George/Covington/Diop-38
Lebron/Saric/Spalding-39
Embiid/Spellman-26/Bitadze-56

will destroy the warriors

07 Jun 2018 19:09:14
Ahh, the classic trade of THJ for nothing.

PG13 and LBJ aren't signing 1 year deals.

Besides. let's do some math here

30+30+25.250+18.15+6.434=109.834 for the starting lineup.

But hey, for shiggles, let's see the rest.

23.687 for the back up vets.

Then figure another 10 million for the rookies.

And were coming in at 143.521. Sounds likely.

07 Jun 2018 16:46:06
T-Wolves fire Thibbs and hire a pace and space coach.

T-Wolves send Jimmy Buckets
Lakes Send: K. Kuzma, J Hart, and Cleveland 2019 pick.

I think this genuinely helps the Wolves, as Buckets demands the ball a little too much for the benefit of Towns and Wiggins (who is more efficient with the ball more often rather than less often, like the only player this is true for) . Kuzma offers explosiveness and upside, Hart offers solidness and shooting, and the pick offers cheapness as KAT's deal looms larger.

The Lakers are able to sign PG and Lebron (even if they don't get Lebron this is still a good deal) . Then they do one more deal to wind up their line up.

Lakers Send B. Ingam
Pacers Send Myles Turner.

Pacers do this because of how valuable wings are and the trust in Sabonis. Lakers get shot blocking, shooting, and stay young.

Lakes line up

Lonzo
Jimmy Buckets
Playoff P
Lebron
Myles Turner

This is a great match up against the Warriors. Old vets will sign cheaper that usual for a chance at a ring, so that fills depth.

07 Jun 2018 21:35:16
The wolves just made the playoffs for the first time in 12 years. They will look to add to what they have not trade one of their all stars.

06 Jun 2018 18:08:31
Clippers Off-Season

Not expecting much to happen.

DJ, Austin Rivers, Milos all opt in.

Clippers keep 12 and 13 and draft Kevin Knox and Robert Williams

Clippers Resign Avery Bradley 1 year/ $12 million

Beverley/ Teodosic/ Evans
Bradley/ Lou Williams/ Rivers/ Thornwell
Gallinari/ Knox/ CJ Williams
Harris/ Harrell/ / Wes Johnson or Dekker
Jordan/ Robert Williams/ Boban

With this, they most likely play small off the bench with Teodosic/ Lou/ Rivers/ Knox/ Harrell bench. Obviously there are more than 15 players so i'd expect maybe guys like dekker or wes johnson or thornwell/ evans to be moved.

Why I don't expect much to happen and how they resign Bradley:
Bradley was hurt much of last year, he won't get that big of offers. Even if he does, unless the Clippers do a sign and trade, there's only 5 teams in the NBA that have cap space and only 1 has over $10 million. I think Bradley gets a 1 year prove it deal much like KCP with the Lakers.

After next season, everyone comes off the books except for Gallinari, Lou Will, and the rookie deal players. Why would they go out of their way to take on long, big contracts when they could play out 1 more season and have cap space for tons of improvement? Jerry West was brought in for a reason. There's a reason Blake was traded and that was financial freedom. They don't want to take on big contracts, they wanna build through rookies and sign big names to surround them with much like GSW and signing Iggy and KD.

Also, this team was close to the playoffs last season and missing manyyyyy starters and key players. They didn't have depth all season. Could be a sleeper.

Let bradley go. Sign a plethora of other guys. Clips can stay competitive with a little scoring.

06 Jun 2018 19:15:55
BLOW IT UP.

06 Jun 2018 20:02:11
I think it's realistic, but I don't like it for the Clippers. They should force a trade for Gallo without losing picks and gather some more moving players like DJ and Lou, who don't fit in their timeline. Only Harris is a keeper.

06 Jun 2018 20:56:14
@btec who would they possibly sign? they are over the cap and can only use the MLE and vet minimums. Them resigning Bradley on a 1 year deal using his bird rights they can go over the cap and give him more money.

@Jalex this post is about blowing it up. But not giving up flexibility and assets in doing so. Like I said, after next season there's only gallo, lou, and rookies on the books.

@milpso trading gallo is ideal for them, but would be extremely tough to do. nobody wants that contract. Harris and dj would would all be off the books after next year anyways. Lou is a valuable asset because for only 8 mill/ year that is a perfect piece to trade to a contending team.

Gpack, agree on abilty to resign but they lose a pick next season by making the playoffs, why go over the cap with so much incentive not to? Aren't they rebuilding? 12 and 13 are good picks but likely won't change games for at least a season or 2.

No this not my favorite trade made and I know once again I going get nocked but chance non of are trades would ever happen , so here is another 5 team trade. Wizards , spurs, pelicans, hornets , kings
Kings would get
C Desmond Howard
Sf Otto Porter
C Alexis Ajinca
And 11 pick from hornets
This would leave pelicans 17,800;000 under cap and would give two player they tried sign or trade for in the past and two player that are legitimate player in nba that kings had hard time getting lat few years

Pelicans would get
Sf Kawhi Leonard
C Marcin Gortat
Pf Chris McCullough sign and trade
Sg Jodie Meeks
Thwoudl leave pelicans 11; 516 419 under the cap

spurs. Would get
Pg Kemba Walker
Sf Nick Batum
C Ian Mahimi
And 2 pick from the kings
This would leave the spurs 24: 801,827 million under the cap

Hornets would get
Pg patty mills
Pf Markieff Morris
C Paul Gasol
Sf Solomon Hill
And 15 pick from the wizards
This would leave 5e hornets with
19,543, 364 in cap space

Wizards would get
In sign and trade
C Demarcus Cousins
Sf Kyle Anderson
C Willie Cauly Stein
Spur 2 round pick
This would free up 41,676, 188 for wizards to sign free agents

With 44 pick wizard sf Jarred Vanderbilt Kentucky. With 49 pick Pf Marcus Derrickson Georgetown
Wizards sign
Pf mike Scott , pg Seth Curry , pg Ty Lawson C Greg Monroe , sg Avery Bradley and pf Lebron James

Pg wall, Seth Curry , Lawson
Sg Beal ,Satoransky, Bradley
Sf Oubre , Anderson , (r) Vanderbilt
Pf Landon James , Scott , (R) Derrickerson
C Cousin, Monroe , Anderson
Ow tell me that would match up with golden state and would be a better team then Landon James has right now in Cleveland and wouldn't be better Then Philadelphia for James

You're thinking way too much about this. Why not go with something realistic?

06 Jun 2018 16:27:56
Learn cba rules 1st.

05 Jun 2018 19:57:29
Lakers get melo,hill,Chandler,Dudley, and pick 8. Lakers clear deng and will be set for 2019 free agency. Buyout melo.

Thunder get
Clarkson, nance, Smith and Cavs 2018 via Lakers. Thunder get something in return for melo.

Suns get Thompson,korver and love. Draft donic to play point.

Cavs get trade exception and suns 2019 top 5 protected pick plus there pick back. Announce all free agents but hood. Believe cap hold is 3 mil. Sign Paul, George, bron and Avery Bradley 10 mil withmax icrease every year. Then Jordan opts in and clippers get hood sign and trade plus cavs pick. Then sign melo and wade plus noel.9 man rotation plus sign reserves. Would smash golden state.
Paul/Bradley
James/wade
George/James/green
Melo/green/James
Jordan/Noel

LMAO would say the Suns about this. Then they'd say not a chance. A second banana who gets injured a lot, an older shooter who does little else, and a chronic underachiever with Kardashian ties all spell no way in the Suns future plans.

05 Jun 2018 20:47:50
Bradley won't sign that low.

05 Jun 2018 21:18:33
I don't see why Phoenix wouldn't do this PHXfan. They don't give up anything useful (Dudley and Chandler) . They get an all star in return for using the cap space they likely won't use anyway.

Aren't second banana's useful? If Doncic turns into a star, you've got two star wings and a great third option.

When did it become such a bad thing to be just a really really good player (Love and Aldridge stick out as good examples) .

05 Jun 2018 21:49:24
9955 Are you serious? My gosh lol.

05 Jun 2018 22:57:02
if melo is going to sign, it has to be on the premise he is coming off the bench. bradley-george-lebron is a much better lineup. melo has to get over his own ego and realize its the best way to extend his career.

05 Jun 2018 23:40:49
Bmiller, the Suns have been tanking and keeping a young team to allegedly "grow together so, there is little need to a guy like Love who'd play like 40 games, get hurt and want to leave anyway. Dudley and Chandler are dead weight true, but are under expiring deals so, their value is greater to PHX than having a limited Korver and a locker room knucklehead. Besides, there surely are better deals to be made elsewhere. Contrary to a lot of what is on this site, not all NBA deals have to include the flotsam in Cleveland. don't they?
