Knicks get Beverly Rivers Evans

Splash trade by Doc
Detroit get Hardaway Noah Burke
Magic get Kanter R.Jackson 5th
Knicks get Anderson Biyombo Ross Galloway 1st 37th
Rockets get Leuer


15 Feb 2018 17:24:14
Doc has shown time and time again that he is not a great GM let alone a good GM. I don't think there will ever be a time that he has GM powers again.

12 Feb 2018 03:48:59
I feel like that wouldn't be a good deal for Cleveland.

12 Feb 2018 04:25:41
Gonna have to waive and trade a loy of players.

12 Feb 2018 16:38:47
17 million for CP3 Umm i doubt that happens.

11 Feb 2018 14:06:51
Cavs off-season if Lebron leaves.

Try to get a sign and trade for Lebron. If he goes to Houston, Gordon, Anderson and 2 1sts for Lebron. Then shop Gordon for a 1st.
If he goes to the Lakers. 3 1sts and Deng for Lebron or 2 1sts, Deng and one of the Lakers lesser prospects like Hart.

Shop Love for a mid level prospect, a first and try to shave some money off the cap. Preferably, they get the deal done before the season. They need to tank to get their own pick next year.

Resign Hood.

Take on bad contracts and young assets for Hill's contract.

Try to trade Korver to save money and buy out Jr Smith.

Scour the g league and etc to fill out the roster with marginal young free agents. Also, be willing to Hood and Clarkson for the right price at the deadline.

11 Feb 2018 15:17:43
LBJ opt's in


Dallas: Deng+ JR Smith+ 1rnd pick Cle 2018+ 1rnd pick LA 2019+ 1rnd pick LA 2021

Cle: H Barnes.

11 Feb 2018 15:25:46
I'd take the picks over Barnes. The Cavs need to make sure they're bad enough to get the pick they traded to the Hawks the next 2 years. Barnes is a good player, but he doesn't look like an allstar and the Cavs won't be anywhere near a team that can get out of the 1st round. He isn't worth potentially 4 picks including the lottery pick that they would lose. The Cavs need to embrace the process if Lebron leaves. It's the only way to build a contender in a small market.

11 Feb 2018 17:48:28
No way they get that package from Houston in a sign and trade deal. Anderson 1st and 2nd rounders more likely.

11 Feb 2018 18:01:19
Tonch, they would have to give up Gordon and Anderson just to match salaries to get Lebron. If they cleared cap space any other way, they would have to trade Gordon and Anderson plus renounce the rights to Capela and Ariza. If they have serious interest in Lebron, they can't get him without a sign and trade or Lebron opting in and being traded. The Cavs would need a pretty solid package to get back since taking back more than 10 millionish would keep them in the luxury tax.

11 Feb 2018 21:51:48
the anderson+gordon deal makes sense. lakers s+t is unnecessary and cavs should have no interest in taking deng. maybe if lakers resign and offer kcp and lopez it could happen.

11 Feb 2018 23:28:19
Dona for 3 1sts, it would be worth it. It wouldn't be hard for them shed enough money to offset taking on Deng. At worse they could stretch JR and it would get them under the tax treshold.

09 Feb 2018 18:40:55
2018 Offseason Plan (Lakers)

Step One
Magic Receive-Luol Deng, 2018 Cavs first round unprotected pick, 2020 Lakers first round unprotected pick

Lakers Receive-Wesley Iwundu

Step two
Lakers extend Julius Randle and sign Isaiah Thomas+Avery Bradley in order to compete

Step 3
Have assets to move at the 2019 deadline and still save a load of money to spend on 2019 free agents. Klay will be available and want a max deal which the Warriors won't be able to afford. Jimmy Butler will also be there but that's unrealistic. Lebron James will likely only sign a 1 year tenure to the Rockets or excursive his player option to return to the Cavs. All in all, the Lakers will have money to sign a superstar weather they want to in 2018 or 2019. Personally I think that the free agent class will be stronger in 2019 compared to the 2018 class.

09 Feb 2018 19:42:45
Thomas with no defense why would Lakers sign him to a contract.

09 Feb 2018 19:45:20
I think the 2018 is stronger with James George Durant cousins Paul and possibly Jordan. But 2019 is younger and better to build with Lakers. Leonard and Klay would be great and trade Ingram for a center. Plus they could keep Deng for one more year and can easily trade in 2019 with Ingram and a couple picks for whiteside.

09 Feb 2018 19:47:16
Orlando takes that deal in less than a heartbeat.

11 Feb 2018 04:20:00
Dallas would take send for two first round picks.

11 Feb 2018 07:23:41
@true99 i'd keep ingram regardless of if u can get lebron, pg, kawhi, butler. the way the league is moving, wings are invaluable and u can do just fine without a traditional big. and ingram will be an all star. come 2019-20 whiteside and dj (both 30+) won't give u close to the same value as him.

09 Feb 2018 19:28:53
the magic have too many highly paid players with long contracts as it is. No way they'd accept another for what could be 2 very low firsts.

06 Feb 2018 22:31:07
Rockets Receive: Alan Williams, Jarded Dudley

The Rockets clear cap space for this summer which is a start for them if they want to pick up Lebron James in free agency. They also get a vet in Jared Dudley who could help in the playoffs.

Suns Receive: Ryan Anderson, Zhou Qui, Chianu Onuaku, 2020 second round pick

The Suns really don't have any terrible contracts with the exception to Knight and Chandler. Brining in an expensive deal is not ideal but let's face it, very few superstars are going to want to sign with a lower tier organization such as the Suns. Brining in your assets are more important for them.

07 Feb 2018 02:56:42
Exactly what asset are they bringing in? A terrible contract and scrubs? How about suns trade Chandler and Dudley for harden and Paul. Maybe suns throw in a 2nd rounder for capela. that's as likel y to happen as yur trade.

06 Feb 2018 21:35:25
Rockets trying to unload Anderson could be harder than the Knicks trying to unload Noah. Knicks at least have some young guys and picks to unload Noah, Rockets hardly have any. But here is my idea.

Hawks receive Anderson, Onuaku, 2020 Rockets 1st rounder (top 3 protected), Rockets 2022 1st rounder (lottery protected) and future 2nd rounder

Rockets receive Belinelli, Ilyasova and Muscala.

07 Feb 2018 01:42:00
Why do rockets make a trade.

05 Feb 2018 10:09:30

just for fun

Thunder: T.Ariza, R.Anderson


Rockets: C.Anthony, 2nd rd pick

Anthony/Mbah Moute

05 Feb 2018 13:26:26
This is actually a good trade, if Houston still wants Anthony.

04 Feb 2018 22:04:44
Cleveland - Houston

Ryan Anderson, Eric Gordon and houston 2021 and 2023 1st round pick


Lebron James

04 Feb 2018 22:37:02
Rockets can't say yes fast enough.

05 Feb 2018 00:25:24
this is probably similar to the opt-in and trade we will see if bron chooses houston, maybe another random player or two.

05 Feb 2018 02:04:38
Pretty funny Airball, wait, this is a joke, right?

05 Feb 2018 04:11:53
@tri it seems more like an offseason sign-and-trade, look at what hou gave for chris paul, basically beverly, lou will (who was not a fringe all star at the time) and their first. s+t’s are rarely fair. cavs would prob ask for capela, but i think they’d take this, you have no leverage in such a situation, they should be happy with the two picks.

05 Feb 2018 04:17:03
I don't think HOU would deal picks that are due when James is retiring. Bad timing. Gordon, and Anderson wouldn't be compensation either. The whole pie is flawed.

04 Feb 2018 20:11:55
Bulls trade houston

Houston gets robin lopez and j. Holiday

Bulls get gerald green and houston 1rst round pick 2018

04 Feb 2018 20:21:12
1. Houston already traded their pick to Atlanta (via Clippers)
2. Who excatly is worth 1st rounder out of those two
3. RoLo is terrible fit in Rockets
4. Salaries don't match.

03 Feb 2018 17:34:43
Spurs moves:


Bryn Forbes to NY for Willie Hernangomez and the 2019 ORL/ CLE/ HOU 2nd round pick


Sign Tony Allen after buyout

Pretty simple, I don't expect the Spurs to do much but add another big and a depth wing. Spurs have reportedly had interest in Willie for a while, and Tony Allen is a Spurs type move. Knicks get the wing they were looking for, and clear a bit of the logjam in the middle.

31 Jan 2018 00:28:29
1) Clippers-NO

NO: A Bradley
Clippers: O Asik+ 1rnd pick NO 2018

2) Clippers- Hou
Clippers: R anderson+ C Capela+ 1rnd pick Hou 2019
Hou: D Jordan

3) Clippers- Cleveland
Clippers: Shumpert+Zizic+ 1rnd pick cle 2021
Cle: L Williams+Dekker

4) Clippers-NY
Clippers: Noah+ 1rnd pick NY 2018 and 2020
NY: T Harris

The Clippers keep the 2019 pick , that will be conveyed in a second round pick.

2018: Own pick+ NO pick+ Knicks pick
2019; own pick+ 1rnd pick Hou
2020: own pick+ Knicks pick
2021: Own pick+ Cleveland's pick

31 Jan 2018 01:46:47
Rockets won't trade Capela for Jordan.

31 Jan 2018 08:13:49
They need to trade Anderson, if they want LBJ and tjhey have to give something.

31 Jan 2018 16:30:47
sorry not a fan of any of these. the draft picks aren't worth enough to take on bad contracts.

why take on extra years of omer asik just to get a draft pick, when bradley is an expiring contract.

rockets won't trade capela and ryan anderson is another bad contract when dj is expiring.

shumpert, bad contract again.

why would the clippers trade a 25 year old who averages 18ppg and was the main piece of the griffin trade, for a center who can't beat out 3 guys for playing time and 2 future picks?

26 Jan 2018 04:49:07

Bucks get Dewayne Dedmon, Taurean Prince, Ersan Ilyasova, and Marco Bellinelli
-Get more shooting and saves a lot of money

Hawks get Jabari Parker, Nerlens Noel, and Matthew Dellavedova
-Pick up 2 young guys with high ceiling and low floor (2 high risk, high reward)

Mavs get John Henson and Rockets' 2018 1st
-Get a late 1st for taking on more salary.

26 Jan 2018 05:29:49
bucks aren't ready to punt on jabari just yet, too bad they won't get to see him play before the deadline.

26 Jan 2018 06:28:29
I think they're tired of him being hurt, might as well get something out of him in return if he comes back before the deadline.

26 Jan 2018 06:30:57
Dedmon expires, and hasn't looked as good as he did in SA. Prince is the only upside. I'd keep Jabari, and see what he can do.

26 Jan 2018 14:34:26
The Bucks say No! Why trade Younger guys for older ones? Milwaukee is also trying to get rid of big contracts, and Players. (Like all NBA teams are trying to do now) Not take on Older players, and more salary.

19 Jan 2018 13:20:24
approching the trade deadline there has been a lot of discussion about DeAndre Jordan and him possibly going to the rockets well iḿ here to assure you that is true. after Gearald Green and Trevor Ariza got into a fight and got ejected and suspended coach Mike D'Antoni does not tollerate that on his team. So the clippers and the rockets are having serious discussion on making a deal for: Rockets Recive Center DeAndre Jordan. clippers Recive:Foward Trevor Ariza and they recive foward Gearls Green and a 2nd round draft pick.

19 Jan 2018 13:51:58
I don't see many Clippers games, but I've seen enough of Jordan to know that he's worth more than Ariza, a throw-in and a draft pick that doesn't mean much.

19 Jan 2018 14:04:15
Make that a 1st rd pick and throw in like Ryan Anderson instead of Gerald Green and I would do that.

19 Jan 2018 14:29:11
Why would Ryan Anderson make sense for the Clips? They have Blake and Gallo already.

Regardless of that, horrible trade for the Clips. Garbage, garbage and a garbage pick. Jordan won't land the Clips a player of his quality in return, but they'll get a first and a better player than Green.

19 Jan 2018 17:48:07
I would assure you the Rockets and Clippers getting a deal together is even less likely than before since that altercation. Certainly not for Ariza.

19 Jan 2018 19:07:58
If Jordan were to get traded to the Rockets they most certainly would need to trade Capela somewhere too.

17 Jan 2018 14:53:27
Saw an article that said Jordan wanted to go to Houston. At first I though it made no sense, but if Houston wants to make a run at Lebron, this might work.

Houston gets Jordan(exp) and Reed (exp)

LA gets Capela, Anderson, Tucker and Houston's 2020 1st

LA gets a younger center that could turn into a Jordan clone plus a first for taking on Anderson's bad contract.

17 Jan 2018 16:04:14
If Houston gets Deandre, it's not to get Lebron. They will resign Deandre for much more than he should get. He's from Houston, always wanted to play there one day. There's a reason he's the only clipper still in contact with cp3. As a clipper fan, I would do this trade but take out reed and replace him with brice johnson and take out tucker.

17 Jan 2018 18:39:58
I would rather have Capela for at least 5 important reasons. You attack me about an article saying Lebrons wife wants to move to LA? Call me TMZ? There is nothing about this that is plausible to any HOU fan. Jordan costs too much.

17 Jan 2018 19:01:56
Jorga, they get back expiring contracts and can try to sign Lebron with a back up plan of resigning Jordan.

18 Jan 2018 03:27:43
i wouldn't give up capela for dj, period. ill give a contract to 24 year old capela over 30 year old capela in heartbeat. consider clint is on the rise and dj on the decline, capela gives u nearly the same game and still will be cheaper (houston will extend him) . just think capela vs dj as players in 3 yrs.

13 Jan 2018 17:59:07
okc/ tevor ariza PJ tucker trade exception 2nd round pick Houston

Rockets/ Carmelo Anthony Alex abrines

13 Jan 2018 20:01:57
Rockets aren’t touch there chemistry.

13 Jan 2018 21:13:00
i wouldn't make this trade if i was houston. i think they are better off with pj’s defense and ariza is better for their team than melo bc he doesn't have an ego getting in the way of him being a good role player.

07 Jan 2018 07:19:21
HOU:M.Leonard, N.Vonleh

POR: Mirotic

CHC: R.Anderson, POR 2nd, Hou 2nd

M.Leonard may need work, but he runs really well, shooting 53% from 3 in 13 games. Anderson can help Bulls with salary minimum next couple years, and get Picks. HOU saves cash, if Leonard will be useful ever it may be in HOU high pace offense. Plays pretty good D. This season anyway. POR gets Mirotic. 3rd scoring option. Badly needed.

07 Jan 2018 16:59:11
I like this for the Bulls and Portland.

But Houston need the capspace, so another team should be involved taking on Leonard's contract.

07 Jan 2018 18:18:13
How is this good for Chicago? Older guy, bigger contract, only 2nds attached. Bulls will get better for Miro, or not move him at all.

07 Jan 2018 20:20:09
Tri-O, It isn't great for CHC. I think Miro is worth more too. Anderson doesn't have short term deal either. Only reason I think there is a slight chance of accepting two seconds, and Anderson, is CHC has lost games on purpose this season. I have seen it. Mirotic is going to be gone no matter what, and what is the sense in getting zero for him if you don't want to make the playoffs, or him on your team? Lastly, CHC needs to hit salary min.

To avoid paying cash, not to themselves, and their own benefit. There is a deal out there that will fill CHC needs. and this is not likely it. Stirring the proverbial pot so to speak. Any ideas? I agree with you other than keeping Miro. Just not smart to get nothing for something. Ask POR fans about that. L. Aldridge comes to mind.

07 Jan 2018 05:55:10
ATL: Clarkson, Randle

LAL: Ilyasova, Belinelli, Delaney, 1st-Hou

Late round 1st from Houston doesn't seem out of question. Chances Kuzma anomaly occurs again are unlikely. What's ATL going to do with 3 1sts?

07 Jan 2018 06:48:08
Basically same trade I posted except you added a pick.

28 Dec 2017 13:30:03
The Clippers should go in rebuilt mode. They keep the 2019 and 2020 pick if it falls into the lottery, the Clippers convey the 2022 second round pick. So the best thing the Clippers can do is tank and trade for draft picks.

I don't think Cleveland would trade the Nets pick for Jordan and i don't think B Griffin is a good fit in that team. Maybe Phoenix would trade some assets for Griffin, but they should trust the process and keep the picks. Boston can use Griffin, but they don't have the capspace (unless they trade Horford). Miami is a good destination, but they don't own their pick. And they're to old to fit other lottery teams timeline.

1) Clippers-OKC-LA

LA: P george+ collison

OKC: B Griffin

Clippers: Ingram+ Deng+ Zubac+Patterson+ 1rnd pick LA 2020+ 1rnd pick OKC 2022

2) Clippers- Houston
Hou: D Jordan+ L williams
Clippers: R Anderson+ Tucker+Capella+ 1rnd pick Hou 2020+ 1rnd pick Hou 2022

3) Clippers- NY
NY: Teodosic+Beverly+ W Johnson
Clippers: Noah+ 1rnd pick NY 2018 and 2020

They can Develop Ingram, Dekker,Capella and Zubac
2018: 2 1rnd picks
2019: 1 1rnd pick (0 before)
2020: 3 1rnd picks
2021: 1 1rnd pick
2022: 3 1rnd picks
And they would have about 50 M capspace in 2020

28 Dec 2017 19:05:25
1st trade makes no sense even in a rebuild. They can do better

2nd is tough to swallow with Andersons contract but a solid idea and i could see it happening

3rd I like best.

27 Dec 2017 22:54:47
Clippers: P George+Singer+ C Capella+ Hilario

Houston: D Jordan+L Williams+ N Collison

OKC: R Anderson+ E Gordon+ 1rnd pick Clippers 2021(top 7 protected)+ 2rnd pick Cavs and Atlanta 2018 from the Clippers

28 Dec 2017 17:17:05
I'm not touching this one with a ten foot pole if I'm the Rockets. Capela is practically untouchable for me if I'm running that squad. His stats are very similar to Jordan, as is his WS, with a significantly higher PER if you're into those kind of stats. He's also doing all this at $20 million less than Jordan and already has chemistry with Harden.

26 Dec 2017 18:21:46
Hou:Hezonja+ MCW+ O'Bryant
Trade: R Anderson+ 1rnd pick 2020

Charlotte: Vucevic+ A Gordon+ Biyombo
trade: D Howard+ 1rnd pick 2019

Orlando: D Howard+ R Anderson+ 1rnd pick Cha 2019 and 1rnd pick Hou 2020

the trade works on trademachine, so Charlotte and Orlando can absorbe the contracts.

Houston get capspace for signing LBJ or PG13, creating a new big three with CP3, Harden and...

Orlando get extra picks so they can keep rebuilding.

Charlotte get a young core.
PF: A Gordon/Kaminski
SF: MKG/ Batum
SG: Lamb/ Monk
Pg: Walker/Stone

26 Dec 2017 18:36:38
If I'm Orlando i pass. Vucavic is someone to build around.

As for the Houston trade, I'm assuming some of those contracts are expiring. If so its a great deal for Houston. They have plenty of scoring without Anderson, who is on a pricey contract.

26 Dec 2017 19:07:39
i thought it would be funny trading Howard and R Anderson to Orlando.

Vucevic is a good player and also A Gordon improved much this year (3-poin shooter) . But can that team become a contender? They had a good start, but they're 11-23 now. I don't think that core can make the second round.

A Gordon is a free agent and his best position is PF. so are they going to pay him big money or are they going to play Isaac. I Would choose Isaac. But if they choose Isaac they better also trade Vucevic, when his stock is high and they can get building pieces to built arround Isaac. So the only way to do that is aiming on good (lottery) picks.
