Celtics- pick 2
Suns- pick 12 (Kings), pick 15 (Clippers), 2020 Celtics pick

Celtics- Karl Anthony Towns
T Wolves- Brown, Yabusele, Ojeleye, pick 24 (Celtics), Grizzlies 2020 pick

Celtics- Beal
Wizards- Hayward, Jackson, Brunson, Robert Williams, 2020 mavericks or rockets second rounder, 2021 Celtics second rounder, 2021 Mavericks second rounder
Marvericks- Horford

Celtics Draft Morant, sign Julius Randle, Terry Rozier,

Celtics lineup
Morant/ Rozier

10 Apr 2019 01:33:44
Suns say no, not a deep enough draft to give up a dynamic player like Morant for mid-round picks.

Wolves laugh at that offer.

10 Apr 2019 01:49:10
There is no way Phoenix trades #2 for that package with Ja Morant still on the board.

10 Apr 2019 05:20:18
Not enough for kat.

10 Apr 2019 09:21:18
is this a joke?

10 Apr 2019 12:32:22
Another wonder bread Celtic fan idea 🤣🤣🤣.

10 Apr 2019 15:50:48
You get two all stars and the #2 overall pick, and don’t give up your most valuable asset? Nope, not happening.

None of the trades are incredibly close to fair. But the Beal one seems worst.

10 Apr 2019 17:32:30
I'm a die hard Celtics fan for 50 years, and I can't stop laughing.

The funniest thing for me is, that people are making these proposals that have draft picks like they know where the pick is slotted, which obviously we won't know until June.

27 Mar 2019 04:02:39
Lakers - Capela
- Gets great young defensive center
Rockets - Ingram and Wagner
- Gets cap space, good wing defender and stretch 5

Lakers draft Coby White
Rockets draft Tre Jones

Lakers sign Ross 2yr deal
Lakers also sign E.Davis and J.Green to vet min deals



27 Mar 2019 11:44:43
Rockets say no.

27 Mar 2019 21:18:32
Rockets pick is in Cleveland.

27 Mar 2019 22:39:22
You’re right, my bad on that.

28 Mar 2019 11:28:30
The rockets give up their best defender/ rebounder in order to get a third string center and a horribly inefficient one dimensional player that will take the ball out of hardens hands?

Go on.

20 Mar 2019 15:18:20
If playoff starts today the match in the West would be

1 GS vs 8 LAC
2 DEN vs 7 UTA
3 HOU vs 6 OKC
4 POR vs 5 SAS

what a terrible stretch by OKC move them to #6 to play the Rockets. DEN will be having a hard time against UTA, POR SAS interesting while it's almost walk in the park for GS

20 Mar 2019 16:14:16
GSW in 5 or 6 - I think everyone gets this. Clips are scrappy, they'll get at least 1
DEN in 6 - DEN has the deeper team, and has the matchups player 4 player. Fun series
HOU in 6 - HOU will team shoot OKC out of building
POR in 7- Home court teams. S. A. could pull off an upset, then lose in the 2nd round. Good for DEN/ UTA.

20 Mar 2019 21:05:54
@jorgawood I don’t disagree with you, but it depends on which version of okc and Houston show up. Both teams have looked like either an unbeatable teams and a cripplingly top heavy teams. Depends on supporting casts and who is on fire at the time.

20 Mar 2019 22:23:02
I think the clippers finish 6th, spurs 7th, okc 8th. Thunder have an atrocious final 10 games stretch. Clippers have a pretty favorable final 10.



21 Mar 2019 02:50:58
@churchP, the Thunder always have the chance to win. Even if they finish 8th they are still the 3rd,4th or 5th best in the west, 8th,9th or 10th best in the league. If they push the pace, cause turnovers, HOU is in trouble.

19 Mar 2019 17:54:36
The Pelicans get Plumlee(exp), Barton, Murray, Porter, Gordon(buyout), the nuggets 20, and 22 1sts, the Rockets 20 1st and 22 1st top 10 protected, and they save 15 million

The Nuggets get Davis, Holiday and Moore

The Rockets get Harris

The Pelicans get a ton to rebuild with and a potential all star in Murray. If Tatum isn't on the table, it's hard to find a trade that checks this many boxes. They save a ton of money, they get a player to start rebuilding around, they get a boat load of picks, they get young talent and Barton can be flipped easily.

The Nuggets end up loaded. There's a lot of draw for Davis as well. Jokic fits next to Davis perfectly. This is one of the few spots where it makes sense for Davis to play the 4. If Durant leaves, this would be the favorite in the west.

The Rockets get a 3 and d wing and an upgrade over Gordon.

20 Mar 2019 14:53:02
They are not trading Holiday, they won't even entertain it.

02 Mar 2019 23:27:24
Hawks - Capela and Clark + trade exceptions (Chriss and Anderson)

Rockets - Bazemore Prince and Dal 1st

- Hawks are getting rid of two players who want out for a young defensive center who will fit great with Collins and very much worth the #8th-12th pick

- Rockets are finding success with Faried and can sign another vet big for min (Ed Davis)

Hawks draft Reddish
Rockets draft Doumboya



04 Mar 2019 14:27:15
Maybe its me, but isn't Capella and Collins kind of the same player? Havent watched much Hawks BBall. They both seem to be that pick-n-roll, rim runner types. Two on the court together just clogs up the key on offense.

04 Mar 2019 18:22:41
Collins is improving his 3pt shooting very well. Also Capela is what they need on the defensive side next to Collins.

02 Mar 2019 22:25:20
Cavs Off-season 2019 Free Agency

Cavs Trade Tristan Thompson

Hornets Trade Bismack Biyombo Dwayne Bacon 2019 second round pick

Cavs Waive Jr Smith no teams won't take his contract

Cavs accept Marquee Chris (players option)

Cavs Draft Rui Hachimura # 3 pick

Cavs Draft Bol Bol # 23 pick via Houston

03 Mar 2019 01:10:49
Hachimura at 3?

03 Mar 2019 02:52:15
Smith’s contract is the reason that teams will take him. They can save 10 million dollars by cutting him before his contract gets fully guaranteed.

As for that Thompson trade, they should pass. Thompson’s been a solid locker room guy this year and he’s a solid player. Why trade him for a 2nd and take on extra cash in the deal that might push them into the luxury.

I don’t see the Cavs reaching on Hachimura or Bol being there that late.

11 Mar 2019 18:51:42
No way Hachimura goes at no 3 to the Cavs. That's way too high when Ja, Reddish, and maybe RJ will still be available.

19 Feb 2019 09:09:18
Rockets offseason

Faried, Rivers and Shumpert 2 year 5 million with player option for 2nd year
Sign W. Chandler and Jerebko vet. min.
Sign and trade: Jamychal Green for Nene and 2x future 2nd rounder

Cp3/ Rivers
Harden/ Gordon
Tucker/ Shumpert/ Clark
Green/ Chandler/ Jerebko
Capela/ Faried/ Hartenstein.

19 Feb 2019 15:17:33
Faried could get an offer between 30 and 36M for three years.
Unless he really wants to play for a contend, he's going to decline that offer.

19 Feb 2019 16:22:51
Gasupo Faried was just waived at that amount. He will be lucky to see 5. Faried was waived at 13.7. He's a 1 dimensional player with little upside if any.

19 Feb 2019 16:46:52
I think he's probably somewhere in the middle. He probably gets a MLE type contract this offseason (Between 5.6 and 8.6 depending on tax or non-tax MLE) . He's a great 6th man or 5th starter. Sure he's one dimensional, but he's really good at that one dimension, and that's generally what makes a great bench player.

19 Feb 2019 17:07:11
Is that a response to me or the post Bmiller66.

19 Feb 2019 20:51:56
I am trying to figure out why the Clippers would want to take back Nene in any deal.

Also, why would Jerebko leave Golden State for a vet min deal? We all know that Golden State would at least offer him a vet min deal.

19 Feb 2019 20:55:53
Just musing about Faried. Mostly a response to the responses.

19 Feb 2019 21:58:00
Faried is playing great since he joined the rockets

16.7 points 10.9 rebounds 636% field goals 31,2 minutes

He could get a good playoff run, so a contract between 30 and 36M isn't unrealistic. Just my opinion.

19 Feb 2019 22:28:44
I'm a guy, I take your musing's as jabs for no apparent reason other than you have a problem?

11 Feb 2019 16:46:46
Most likely to happen? Even if some sounds stupid or delusional :) next season


1. Kings and Cousins reunion. Cousins signs a 4yrs max contract

Pg Fox
Sg Hield
Sf Barnes
Pf Bagley
Ce Cousins

this team can make noise

2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think?)

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines.

6. Durant goes to Lakers :)

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again

8. Suns sign Kemba & one more big time free agent

9. Spurs trade Derozan

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West

11. Mitchell & Doncic become all stars

12. Dwayne Wade comes back

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach

14. Lillard or McCollum trade

15. NYK playoffs

11 Feb 2019 18:40:17
1. I Don't see it happening

2. The Clippers seem to have the assets to pull off a trade, that wouldn't be shocking at all. No chance he resigns in NO.

3. I could see that happening.

4. I think Houston would do anything. They run things very unemotionally. Maybe Orlando makes a bid if they re-sign Vuc? Nos sure they have what Houston would want, but they're someone that would try.

5. Feels very likely.

6. 0% chance. He wouldn't join another team to be called a coward. It's a lowly team that needs him like the Knicks, or it's back to GS.

7. AGAIN! Yep, they jump the Knicks and get Zion.

8. I don't see it. Maybe a big offer sheet player, but not an established all star.

9. The Spurs could do anything. Trading Derozan is definitely on the table.

10. This already happened? They're the third worst team in the west right now.

11. If both of these guys don't make it to 4+ all star games, I'd be surprised.

12. Nah, not after the tour he's had.

13. He'd be a hoooooorible coach. Too much of a perfectionist and too much ego to coach.

14. McCollum: 33%, Lillard: 0%

15. 2025?

11 Feb 2019 19:36:40
5 is the most likely to happen. But I am looking at "no one" as being "no star player". I can see Tyreke Evans signing a short term one year deal.

11 Feb 2019 20:43:40
Right Fredman, I was assuming no one meant no star.

11 Feb 2019 22:58:55
Rise ain't st as ying healthy.

11 Feb 2019 23:26:48
2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard I wish but no to staying even w extension. Clips only hyave shot if Ainge gets weak

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs nope

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think? ) Possible

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines. I'd love to see it but unlikely

6. Durant goes to Lakers :) maybe

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again Nope 1 outta 3 shot

8. Suns sign Kemba and one more big time free agent El Paso says Kemba

9. Spurs trade Derozan Good shot

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West Or at least close

11. Mitchell and Doncic become all stars Over time yes

12. Dwayne Wade comes back Why ask?

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach Nahhh

14. Lillard or McCollum trade L= Nope M =YEPP

15. NYK playoffs Within 3 years.

07 Feb 2019 16:12:24
Cleveland-Minnesota idea

Cleveland gets Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota's 2019 1st and 2021 1st

Minnesota gets JR Smith, Jordan Clarkson, and Houston's 2019 1st

Cleveland takes a chance on the player they originally drafted, while improving on their 2nd 2019 1st, add another future 1st, and trade away a guy who doesn't want to be there.

Minnesota saves a ton of cap space (Smith in only partially guaranteed for next year) while still getting a useful player in Clarkson and still having a 2019 1st.

07 Feb 2019 16:33:06
Minnesota's picks lottery protected?

07 Feb 2019 16:38:36
Pretty solid for the Cavs as long as both of those picks are protected in a way that they actually convey no matter what. I like it for Minnesota as well, if they’re looking to add some capspace and to get rid of Wiggins.

07 Feb 2019 18:20:15
Cavs already have 1 overpaid players who doesn't play defense. Wiggens has bigger contract that Love. Please don't ruin cavs franchise.

07 Feb 2019 19:53:19
Shizzee- subtract lebron years and that franchise is ruined.

07 Feb 2019 05:45:26
*Pelicans get: Kent Bazemore, Furkan Korkmaz, Jonah Bolden, 2019 2nd (via CHI, from PHI)
PG Holiday/Frazier/Payton
SG Moore/Jackson/Clark
SF Bazemore/Korkmaz/Williams
PF Randle/Mirotic/Bolden

PG Simmons/McConnell/Smith
SG Redick/Miller/Stauskas
SF Butler/Scott/Richardson

*Hawks get: Solomon Hill, Markelle Fultz, 2019 2nd (From PHI)
PG Young/Lin/Dorsey
SG Huerter/Carter/Fultz
SF Prince/Bembry/Hamilton
PF Collins/Spellman/Hill

07 Feb 2019 06:06:06
Jay aren't you a sixers fan. Markieff is done for the yr.

06 Feb 2019 15:56:05
Cavs Trade:
Love, Burks
Bamba, Brandon Knight, KCP, Lance

Houston Trades:
Knight, 2019 1st

Lakers trade:
Lonzo, KCP, Lance
Love, Houston 2019 1st

Orlando trades:

06 Feb 2019 18:13:22
You will need a 1st to move Love. Lonzo for Bamba only 2 teams should be involved.

06 Feb 2019 19:15:57
Bamba for ball usnt happening.

06 Feb 2019 22:22:43
If it’s not a big man. Orlando doesn’t want him.

06 Feb 2019 22:37:04
They’d be getting a first for Burks from Houston. This sends it straight to LA in one deal.

04 Feb 2019 08:38:44
HOU receives Maker

MIL receives Oubre

PHX receives Nene, 1st rd pick HOU (top 20 protected)

04 Feb 2019 10:31:49
Terrible for Phoenix.

04 Feb 2019 14:10:32
Phoenix would rather have Maker and leave Houston out of it.

04 Feb 2019 14:40:41
@ Fredman, Agreed!

Send Maker to Phoenix,

Phoenix then sends Oubre to Milwaukee.

No need for Houston to get involved.

04 Feb 2019 14:51:06
Houston is looking for a wing, not another big man.

04 Feb 2019 02:57:56
Rockets get: Terrence Ross and Jerian Grant

Magic get: Brandon Knight and a 2020 1st round pick (lottery protected)

04 Feb 2019 04:33:45

04 Feb 2019 06:17:07
2020 pick? Try a 2019 just to get the conversation started.

03 Feb 2019 21:10:54
The Cavs get Knight, Chriss, NeNe, Fultz Z.Smith, the Houston 2019, and Houston 21 lottery Protected

The 76ers get Gordon, Cavs and Rockets future 2nd

The Rockets get Love, Burks, and Nwaba.

04 Feb 2019 00:41:56
Loves isn't worth 2 firsts.

04 Feb 2019 20:23:08
They are very late first so he might be.

Two controllable guys in fultz and smith for Gordon I'm sure would be a no from the sixers.

03 Feb 2019 15:25:33
Mavs moves that should happen:

- Hardaway OR Lee
- Chriss, Knight, 1st 2019

- Chriss + future 1st and 2nd 2019
- Vucevic OR Bamba

C: (or Maybe try on Knight as fast player and 3 point shooter)
- Knight, 1st 2019 (Rockets)
- Rubio

It works for all Teams!

03 Feb 2019 04:57:19
Three team deal

To HOU - Matthews

To ATL - Knight, Chriss, 2019 1st from Houston

To NYK - Lin, J. Anderson 2021 2nd from Houston

Houston is looking for a 3 and D wing. Instead of potentially being tied to Bazemore’s large salary next year, they ease their cap hit for 2020 by moving Knight and get an expiring but very productive Matthews.

Hawks take on Knight’s salary, but get the 1st they were looking for.

Knicks keep cap flexibility and add a small asset in the future 2nd.

03 Feb 2019 05:32:52
Seems easier to do a Lin for Knight + 1st rounder deal than bringing Houston into it.

03 Feb 2019 05:44:19
Houston is looking for 3 and D, not another PG like Lin. That’s why the Knicks are involved.

02 Feb 2019 22:57:03
If Grizzlies finally decide to rebuild and to go for a as bad as possible pick this year:

-Lee, JaMychal Green
-Knight(15m Buyout from Mavs), Favors(exp), for 2019 1st Jazz, 1st Houston, 2nd Mavs
-Conley, Chriss

03 Feb 2019 00:46:02
Even if bought out, Knight will be a $15 mil hit to Memphis 2019 salary cap. Be better to see if you can flip his expired contract next year for more assets.

I think that Memphis can get more for Conley.

03 Feb 2019 00:59:20
Drano trying to make the best euro team in dallas 🤣. Defense wins championship drano, smh. Hardaway for Fournier next.

Rubio Fournier Sloth Dirk Porzingis

02 Feb 2019 19:33:05

Rockets get Jamychal Green, Garrett Temple, and Omri Casspi

Grizzlies get Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, and 2019 1st rd pick (lottery protected)

02 Feb 2019 17:47:31
Knicks Rockets

1st trade
Knicks trade: D. Jordan

Rockets trade: B.Knight N. Hilario 1st round pick

2nd trade

Knicks Kings

Knicks trade: F.Ntilikina M.Hezonja E. Kanter

Kings trade: W.Cauley-Stein Z.Randolf B.Mclemore 2 2nd round picks

Knicks overall acquire an additional 1st and 2 2nd's plus cut an additional 8mill on the 2nd trade. Might say no because they'd rather include L.Thomas instead of Hezonja because he is signed for an additional year. Figured 2 2nds by the Kings gets them Hezonja over Thomas.

Rockets get out of Knights Contract while pairing up D.Jordan with C.Paul and also solidifying the center position until C.Capela returns

Kings use their 11 Mill in cap space to strengthen their roster and push for playoffs.

Fox Ntiliakina Yogi
Heild Bogdanovic
Bjelica Bagley Labissiere
Bagley/Kanter Giles Koufos

02 Feb 2019 17:59:32
Kings pass immediately.

Divac has already stated to the media that he is not using the $11 mil cap space unless the Kings RECEIVE draft compensation (not GIVE draft picks like you have them doing) .

02 Feb 2019 18:01:37
I can’t see the Knicks taking on salary after trading KP
to clear out salary. Especially not for a late 1st. It’s possibpe that Knight costs more to move on his own than that.

02 Feb 2019 18:45:04
Tellem newbees rkenne.

02 Feb 2019 17:05:30
Knicks Rockets

Knicks trade: D. Jordan

Rockets trade: B. Knight N. Hilario 1st round pick

02 Feb 2019 17:42:44
I like this for both teams.

Jordan is to good for the Knicks this year.

02 Feb 2019 18:48:43
Jordan for cp3 1st.
