23 Sep 2017 07:31:37
The Cavs aren't giving up the Nets pick for Melo and it would take more to get the Pacers to take on Andersons contract. A 2nd isn't even almost worth it.

23 Sep 2017 16:51:42
Yeah, no way Cleveland includes the nets pick unless porzingis is included as well (which obviously won't happen) .

23 Sep 2017 18:00:20
Maybe the cavs pick but no way are they trading the Brooklyn pickf for melo.

23 Sep 2017 18:35:52
Indy would want a first

Portland would be a good fit for him.

23 Sep 2017 04:20:47

DET : R.Anderson + 1st round pick HOU (2020)

NY : R.Jackson + T.Ariza + 1st round pick HOU (2018) + 2nd round pick DET + some waiveable contracts from HOU

HOU : C.Anthony + H.Ellenson

I think this is a fair offer for NY to deal Melo to Rockets finally. Detroit get an equally terrible contract but get a 1st while Anderson fits very well behind Drummond and knows SVG system very well

22 Sep 2017 12:03:32
Melo pushing for a trade going to Houston if not, he will accept the Blazers offer..

Finally, Melo drama will be over before the start of the season..

22 Sep 2017 14:15:02
I don't know that he'll accept the Blazers trade. It looks like his family is all ready to move to Houston, and based on La LA's career, staying in NY would be better than living in Portland.

22 Sep 2017 16:22:40
The problem is that NY has absolutely no interest in houston's offer triangle. They won't take Ryan Anderson. It's possible that he ends up in Houston, but if it was going to happen, it seems like it would have happened already.

22 Sep 2017 22:01:25
Bmiller, I completely agree, my comment was only that he would rather stay in NYC and continue to hold out hope for Houston instead of accepting a deal to Portland.

21 Sep 2017 20:12:55
Knicks - Pelicans - Rockets

Knicks gets:
2018 1st Pelicans (Top 3 protected)
2020 1st Rockets (top 10 protected)

Pelicans gets:

Rockets gets:
Future 2nd Pelicans

Knicks take on bad contracts while moving on from Melo. Getting two 1st rd picks will help their rebuild.

Pelicans move Hill that is injured, Asik and Ajinca that is just bad contracts for a shooter in Anderson and a starting SF in Ariza.

Rocket finally gets Melo and can now form their big 3. Kuzminskas can try to earn some bench minutes or he gets moves again at the deadline.

21 Sep 2017 22:30:10
All day garbage offer for ny.

22 Sep 2017 11:55:46
Maybe without the protections, but NY should keep Anthony in this case.

22 Sep 2017 14:18:58
Asik and Ajinca is too much garbage for the Knicks to take on just to move Melo and pick up a couple of mid to late first rounders.

21 Sep 2017 14:32:05
The Knicks get Monroe(exp), Frye(exp), Teletovic , Jefferson(exp), Tavares(waive), Parker, Brogodon, and 2 Houston firsts

The Cavs get Henson

The Rockets get Melo

The Bucks get Porzingis, Ariza, Anderson, and Noah

21 Sep 2017 14:53:09
Don't see the Knickerbockers trading Porzingis, since he is the face of their franchise. If they were going to trade him, it seems like they had better offers before this year's draft. Don't see him moved anywhere.

21 Sep 2017 15:00:00
this trade was fine until i got to the porzingis part. remember what ny was asking pre-draft for him? i doubt they have weakened those demands at all. but in theory, giannis and zinger is a terrifying prospect.

21 Sep 2017 15:31:23
No from NY. we had legit talks for Booker and the 4th pick for Kristaps and Noah.

21 Sep 2017 16:02:37
Alexstorm, the Knicks asked for Booker and Pheonix told them to kick rocks. I never saw where Noah was involved. Maybe this isn't enough for KP, but what would basically be Brogdon, Parker, a 1st and getting rid of Noah wouldn't be a bad return.

21 Sep 2017 14:08:37
Houston gets Melo

The Knicks get Parker, Monroe, Qi, Vaughn, Taylor (waive), Quarterman (waive), Long (Waive), Onuako (waive), and a lottery protected 2020 Houston pick

The Bucks get Anderson, Lee, top 8 protected 18 Knicks pick, and a top 10 protected 2022 Houston pick

21 Sep 2017 07:27:31
3 team trade Melo going to Rockets:

Anderson and future 1st rd pick from Rockets to Sixers

Okafor, Ariza and Bayless plus Gentile (unsign draftee from Rockets) to Knicks

Melo and O'Quinn to Rockets


Melo and Noah for Ariza, Anderson and Gordon

21 Sep 2017 10:40:18
i don't dislike this for the Knicks
Okafor-Porzingis could be a good combo.

Philly could absorb Anderson's contract and he could be a leader for that young team.

21 Sep 2017 13:24:44
The 2nd trade is awful for Houston.

20 Sep 2017 23:47:31
Melo's camp is hopefull that Melo is with the Rockets by monday, Rockets are not giving Ariza up and Knicks don't want Anderson, so I came up with this.


Rockets get Melo and Neto


Knicks get Favors, Burks, Teletovic, Long, Rockets '20 1st rounder ( top 6 protected ), Bucks '20 1st rounder (lottery protected)


Jazz get Anderson, O'Quinn, Dotson, Jackson, Taylor (waive) and option to swap '21 1st rounder with Rockets


Bucks receive Lee

Brogdon/Delavedova/Payton II

Rockets get what they want.
Knicks get solid veterans, strengthen their bench and most importantly get two 1st rounders.
Jazz adds another great shooter to compliment Goberts play style and a great back up big.
Bucks get rid of Teletovic and get a great 3 and D player to help them push fod a deep playoff run.

21 Sep 2017 03:59:21
First-rounder in the 20 to 30 range is fair compensation for Anthony. Knicks will never get that haul.

21 Sep 2017 13:14:03
But they could have Horford and the Nets first for Melo from Boston if they want Super.

19 Sep 2017 19:06:42
Knicks - Rockets - Thunder

Knicks gets:
Taylor (Waive)
Quarterman (Waive)
Long (Waive)
2020 1st Rockets (top 5 protected)

Rockets gets:

Thunder gets:
2020 2nd Rockets

20 Sep 2017 23:05:07
Anderson isn't a bad fit in OKC,
one off the best C Anthony to Houston trades i've seen.

22 Sep 2017 22:31:22
Makes enough sense it could work, i agree it is one of the best melo to rockets trades i have heard.

23 Sep 2017 05:38:40
Thunder, like everyone else, do not want Anderson and his insane contract either.
I have a better idea,

NY gets :
(Chicago's 2018 2nd Rd pick)

OKC gets :

17 Sep 2017 15:05:25

Sixers get:Frye,Cavs own 2018 1st
Cavs get:Holmes,Rockets 2018 2nd via 76ers.

Sixers could use Fryes big man shooting off bench. Gain late 1st rd pick.

Cavs could use Holmes as back up for Thompson and not lose a step(Holmes may actually be the better player here), and save 6 million in salary against the cap(which probably equates to a $15mill total savings).

17 Sep 2017 15:13:31
Frye is a non-rotation player even in Philly and the Cavs' No. 1 is not worth much.
Holmes is a legit player who would cost more than what Cleveland is giving up.

18 Sep 2017 00:48:56
Supercollider: could the celtics use Holmes in their big man rotation? What would the boys from beantown be willing to give up for him in a fair deal? Great thing about Holmes contract is its for 1.4 this year and a team option 1.6 for the following year. Awesome for his production and potential.

18 Sep 2017 04:10:33
Holmes is a solid player, but I think Frye would be in Philly's rotation Collider. I think it all depends on how comfortable Philly is with Embiids healthy. If they aren't (speaking more long term) they need to keep Holmes as insurance. If they are, they might want to try and sell high on Holmes, who won't be playing a ton of minutes this year, since they probably won't want to pay him in 2 years. He could be looking at 10+ million dollars. Maybe out could switch the direction the 2nd is going though. I like it for the Cavs.

18 Sep 2017 10:29:53
Voug - After Fultz/ Tatum it's unlikely Boston and Philly would make another big trade. Holmes has great potential, but he has yet to play in a big game so his projected 36-minute stats (17 ppg, 1.9 blocks) might be empty calories. As to compensation, Boston's roster now has players who would be too much of an overpay plus players who wouldn't be enough to get Holmes. Suppose maybe Rozier would be somewhat equal value, but that would thin out a backcourt that already could use a little more depth. Plus, moving Holmes would force Philly to give minutes to Okafor, so it might be a trade that would hurt both teams.

18 Sep 2017 21:06:10
Sixers traded up to #25 this year to draft 7'1" Pasecniks from Latvia. he's the long term back up for Embiid. Amir Johnson gives immediate help inside to okafor if embiid gets hurt again. Holmes value is very high at the moment. Time to sell. Who needs a young, high upside bigman on a bargain basement contract for the next 2 years? Any trade ideas?

13 Sep 2017 01:50:39
ATL: Bazemore + HOU 1st

CHI: Wade

ATL clears Baze off the books, And CHI gets an athletic wing + an additional 1st.

13 Sep 2017 17:34:12
Make it a 3 way deal

Atlanta sends bazemore and Hou 1st to Chicago
Atlanta receives Channing Frye (Exp) and Iman Shumpert (Exp)

Chicago sends DWade
Chicago receives Baze and Hou 1st

Cavs send Frye and Shumpert
Cavs receive Wade.

13 Sep 2017 18:47:51
I'm not sure why Atlanta would be trying to clear cap space. They're in the first year of a rebuild. It's not like free agents will be all that interested next season.

12 Sep 2017 13:55:22

Houston gets Melo and OQuinn
- ends the saga

NOP gets Thomas and Anderson
- adds a shooter

NYK gets Asik, Ajinca, Hill, Ariza
- Knicks get back contracts (in Asik and Hill) but since they will he considered exp deals next year due to team option. Knicks can build around a young core.

12 Sep 2017 15:15:45
Pels are not getting rid of Asik. He has mext to no trade value.

13 Sep 2017 02:14:04
Hate it for the Knicks, and that's even with me wanting to do anything possible to move Melo.

11 Sep 2017 16:33:34

Bulls trade wade to Houston for Eric Gordon Trevor Ariza.

11 Sep 2017 16:13:20

Knicks get Bledsoe, Parker

Rockets get Melo

Bucks get Anderson, Warren, 1st from Rockets

Suns get Nkitilina, Gordon

09 Sep 2017 10:15:38
Knicks add henson.

09 Sep 2017 14:41:47
Great deal for the Knicks, but huge overpay for Houston.

09 Sep 2017 17:45:12
Melo for Tatum and Brown (would have been the Brooklyn 1st, but that's already gone) .

Huge overpay for the Knicks, but they do want to get younger.

09 Sep 2017 00:33:44
Bucks - Knicks - Rockets

Bucks gets:
2019 1st Knicks (lottery protected)

Knicks gets:
2020 1st Rockets (top 5 protected)

Rockets gets:

09 Sep 2017 12:51:06
Knicks have already made it clear that they don't want Anderson, or the Melo deal would already be done.

08 Sep 2017 16:59:31

Milwaukee gets- Eric Gordon

Memphis gets- Ryan Anderson, Trevor Ariza, Tim Quarterman

Houston gets- Carmelo Anthony, Joakim Noah

New York gets- Chandler Parsons, Greg Monroe, 1st rd protected pick (MIL)

What do you think?

08 Sep 2017 17:24:30
That's awful for Houston.

08 Sep 2017 17:35:56
No way Rockets take Noah, in this or any other deal.

08 Sep 2017 18:13:31
If Rockets take Anthony, Knicks would have to throw in an asset like a No. 1. Houston would be crazy to take Anthony AND Noah.

08 Sep 2017 23:19:03
Big no on Noah from Houston.

07 Sep 2017 03:14:08

HOU get Carmelo Anthony & John Henson
sign Monta Ellis

Pg Paul/Ellis/Brown

Pg Nkitilina/Sessions/Baker
Sg Lee/THJ
Sf Ariza/Kuzminkas/Thomas
Pf Parker/Monroe
Ce Porzingis/Hernangomez/Noah

07 Sep 2017 04:50:55
I just don't see Houston wanting to put Capela into the deal.

07 Sep 2017 21:31:06
Cappella has expiring contract and he might ask for 15-18m per year (A fee rockets aren't going to pay regarding their salary cap situation but teams with more cap space will) and although he deserves them its better to have henson's 10m contract.

30 Aug 2017 16:46:05

Atlanta gets- Jahlil Okafor

Houston gets- Carmelo Anthony

New York gets- Kent Bazemore, Nik Stauskas, Isiah Taylor, Tim Quarterman, 1st rd pick (HOU)

Philadelphia gets- Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza
