Celtics- Capela,2020 first unprotected, 2021 favorable swap rights to Celtics, 2022 top 8 protected
Rockets- Smart,14,20

18 Jun 2019 15:03:29
This is ridiculous.

18 Jun 2019 01:55:33
Ok I have even better trade Houston , Milwaukee , Memphis and wizards

Sg. Avery Bradley -$12,996,000
Sg Danta Divencenzo -$2,909,640
Pg Mike Conley -$32,511,622
C Ian Mahimi -$16,000,000
After trade salary cap is $125,152,720

Milwaukee before the trade salary cap is $100,461,422
Bucks get
Pg chris Paul-$38,506,403
C Dwight Howard $5,603,850
Pf sign and trade Bobby Portis $ 15,000,000

C/f nene - $3,825,360

After trade wizards cap would be $80,480,973

18 Jun 2019 02:44:06
Don’t see Grizz doing that.

18 Jun 2019 03:06:29
Or the bucks. Howard and Paul are horrible teammates.

18 Jun 2019 03:15:03
Your cap numbers are way off. For example here is Milwaukee's cap situation going into next year.

Active Roster Cap. $100,269,044
Dead Money. $3,872,604
Cap Holds. $30,861,042

Now Milwaukee can waive all the cap holds to the bird rights for their RFAs and UFAs. But I doubt they will waive Brogdon which is a little over $3 mil and B. Lopez which is a little over $4 mil. So if you lower the cap holds to $7 mil, then the total salary until Brogdon and Lopez are resigned is $110 mil which will put them over the salary cap. So if they are going to be over the salary cap, how is Milwaukee suppose to be in a trade that has them taking on an additional $20 mil in salary?

Spotrac. com is probably one of the best sites to deal with tesms salary cap situations.

18 Jun 2019 03:25:36
And the trade is too complicated.

18 Jun 2019 15:37:03
Conley has value. He's not a salary dump.

18 Jun 2019 01:51:09
Let's make a 2019 version of the Bad Boys Pistons, yea?

Detroit gets Chris Paul, 2nd rounder
Houston gets Reggie Jackson, John Leuer, Langston Galloway

Detroit gets Steven Adams, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala
OKC gets Blake Griffin, Houston 2nd, GSW 2nd
GSW gets Andre Drummond, Andre Roberson, OKC first

Okc gets a 3rd star.

Golden State seem committed to Klay and KD. Idk how they also pay Draymond. Gives them someone to replace Boogie. And this is the one place I can think of for Roberson that could (1) be their best wing defender and (2) could hid his bad shooting with great shooting.

Detroit adds JR Smith when he inevitably bought out. Signs Patrick Beverly. Drafts Rui Hachimura. Resigns Pachulia.

Paul, Beverly
Kennard, Smith
Iguodala, Robinson
Green, Hachimura
Adams, Maker, Pachulia

Maybe not the best team, but it's fun to make the Pistons the bad boys again. Who'd make your version of today's Pistons Bad Boys?

18 Jun 2019 02:48:17
They better be a top defensive team bc they’ll be one of the worst offensive team by far.

18 Jun 2019 04:18:11
If I had to make a bad boys team with everyone in the league


18 Jun 2019 04:55:33
Wiggins?!? One of the softest guys in the L.

18 Jun 2019 06:48:49
I primarily picked the most hated at each position.

17 Jun 2019 23:16:20
Hou- Bos - Orl
Houston receives - Hayward , Mosgov (exp), Brown , 20th pick , 22nd pick

Boston receives - Capela , Fournier

Orlando receives- Paul

18 Jun 2019 00:19:08
Think magic say no. He is old, overpaid, and injured a lot.

18 Jun 2019 03:14:00
Hard pass from Boston.

18 Jun 2019 14:07:24
Brown has more value than Capela and Fournier straight up. You add the 20th and 22nd pick it becomes on top of loosing brown ainge is shipping of Hayward and loosing assets. Capela is awful, dissapeared in the playoffs and the Celtics should only think about acquiring him because he has some room at 25 for improvement. This deal is awful for the Celtics though.

17 Jun 2019 16:14:08
to hou: k. love, clarkson, bates-diop
to cle: capela, saric, dieng
to min: gordon, nene.

17 Jun 2019 16:28:49
Minny loses bad.

17 Jun 2019 16:49:11
@shiller gordon is better than anyone they give up, they can extend him, or flip as expiring if it don't work out. saric is good and going to be ext eligible too, but dumping dieng here was significant, 2 yrs of a bad contract gone, they give up basically two young role players but avoid shedding any future picks.

17 Jun 2019 18:05:28
None can't play and losing two rotation guts when they have 7 with rose and gibson as free agents?

17 Jun 2019 10:58:14

Kings out: Barnes, Bjelica, Giles
Kings in: Capela, Johnson, 1st rd pick Rockets

get a center that will fit in


Rockets out: Capela, Paul, 1st rd pick
Rockets in: Whiteside, Dragic, Bjelica
- they get rid of Paul in expense of Capela and a 1st. They got players that could help them compete


Heat out: Dragic, Whiteside, Johnson
Heat in: Paul, Barnes, Giles

Paul/13th pick

17 Jun 2019 13:34:41
Not sure how this helps the Kings. Kings trade a better shooting wing forward and a young big for a better big and a lesser wing forward and a late 2020 first rounder. And I won't talk about the future cap flexibility the Kings loose as well.

17 Jun 2019 10:20:36

Pistons: Chris Paul, Malik Monk, 1st round pick Hornets (#12), 2nd round pick Houston & Bismack Biyombo (exp)
- took the horrible contract of Chris Paul but gain a lottery pick and decent back ups

draft picks #12 Bol Bol, #15 PJ Washington


Rockets: Reggie Jackson (exp) & Nic Batum
- get rid of Paul by taking Batum who has a smaller and shorter contract


Hornets: Andre Drummond & Langston Galloway
- get a strong center finally and gets rid of Batum


17 Jun 2019 16:09:01
i like drummond to cha for batum+12.

16 Jun 2019 15:43:39
Celtics loose Kyrie, Rozier, Horford opts in, Morris resigns

Celtics- Westbrook
Thunder- Smart, Brown, 14

Celtics- Capela, Eric Gordon
Rockets- Horford, 20, 22

Celtics lineup-
Eric Gordon
Tatum/ Hayward

16 Jun 2019 15:50:24
Things are bad enough in Boston without Westbrook.

16 Jun 2019 23:36:58
Agreed. Boston is looking pretty much like a year down. Keep a couple young ones but the rest clearly isn’t working.

16 Jun 2019 15:40:31
Celtics loose Kyrie, Rozier, Horford opts in, resign morris

Celtics- Mike Conely
Grizzlies- Hayward, pick 14, Celtics 2020 pick top 14 protected until 2023 than unprotected

Celtics- Capela
Rockets- Smart, 20,22

Celtics lineup-

16 Jun 2019 15:53:26
The Picks might be enough to unload Hayward. But you'll never get a valuable player on top.

16 Jun 2019 04:53:47
Cavs Trade Cedi Osman Jordan Clarkson 2019 first round pick (rockets)

Bulls Trade Zach Lavine

What y'all think?

16 Jun 2019 14:09:33
Why do the Cavs want LaVine?

15 Jun 2019 00:17:06
Charlotte get: Clint Capela

Houston get: Malik Monk, Bismack Biyombo, 12th pick and a 2020 1st round pick (lottery protected)

15 Jun 2019 02:23:54
That seems like to much for Capela.

15 Jun 2019 02:56:30
Make the 2020 pick top 15 and rockets accept.

15 Jun 2019 02:56:51
Sorry Charlotte accepts.

15 Jun 2019 03:22:26
Eh maybe, Biyombo isn’t anything but a role player at best and Monk hasn’t done anything but been inconsistent so far. 2 mid-teen picks isn’t bad for Capela for a team that needs an athletic center w rim protection.

14 Jun 2019 00:00:29

Sign some vets....

BY...BI, Ball, 4th and a future 1st for AD

4th and Moore for Capela and Tucker.

Sign Beverley, resign Okafor.

Capela's locked in for a while, Tucker's a good insurance policy/complimentary piece and Bev gives the second unit leadership and intensity. Ball has a reliable center running up and down the floor. With a future 1st sitting in the waiting.

Houston can do whatever to that 4th. Flip it to ATL for 8 & 10.. D'antoni's system can fit anyone so I would flip it for more assets. They could possibly replace both of their starters with Haynes and Reddish.

I think it works for all

14 Jun 2019 02:53:20
Hou can then maybe find a place for Cp3 using the 4th unless they want Culver/ Hunter.

13 Jun 2019 22:04:04
Spurs - C. Paul, future 2nd rd pick

Houston - P. Mills, Forbes, Belinelli, Bertans, C. Metu, 49th pick

13 Jun 2019 21:20:36
Kings Rockets Celtics


Kings: Horford

Rockets: Cauley-Stein

Celtics: Capella

I'm aware
1.Cauley-Stein/Horford might be (free agent or a restricted depending on Kings and Horford)

Why it works:
Kings: Will focus on the center position in FA (Vucivec Rumored) Horford comes cheaper and will be expiring.If they restrict Cauley-Stein caphold of 12Mill actually have 24Mill available in FA

Celtics: In talks with Rockets for Capella. Horford is owed 30M next season (OptsIn). Cap needed to resign Rozier now that Irving has opted out. Needs Improved depth

Rockets: Need Cap relief. CP3 contract maybe used for Cap relief but it will need to be attached to major assets to be moved.

13 Jun 2019 21:26:10
Word on the word on the street is WCS will be offered a QO. If he declines and becomes a RFA, his QO will be pulled as soon as the Kings sign another big man. Kings options just got larger as Valacunius just opted out of his deal with the Grizzlies.

12 Jun 2019 00:06:26
Bulls - Wall and Mahinmi(exp)
Rockets - Porter
Wizards - CP3

Bulls reasoning - If Garland goes to Lakers and White to Suns then Bulls would most likely draft Hunter or Reddish. Wall will be most of next or even all so they still can get another high pick.

Rockets reasoning - Gets off of CP3 contract and adds a 3&D forward

Wizards reasoning - If they keep Beal then they should aim for playoffs. Wall won't play much next year and CP3 adds more spacing than Wall does. This also give Beal a PG who doesn't need the ball all the time to be a threat




12 Jun 2019 01:33:22
Why for the Bulls. They lose a good wing for John walls expensive corpse.

12 Jun 2019 02:11:08
I’m a wizards fan and I even I know that the bulls would never do this. They would be taking on 2 awful contracts and would not even have the guarantee that wall would be good.

12 Jun 2019 00:07:32
Lakers - AD
Rockets - Hill and Ball
Pelicans - CP3 Ingram Kuzma 8th 10th 2021 Lakers 1st and 1/2 future pick(s) from
Hawks - 4th

- Lakers add 2nd star
- Rockets get salary relief
- Pelicans add 2 great young talent and 2 top 10 picks

Lakers sign Se.Curry, D.Green and T.Ariza
Rockets sign J.Green
Pelicans draft Zion Bol Bol and Porter Jr
Hawks draft Culver and Gafford



Holiday/Porter Jr
Bol Bol


12 Jun 2019 04:34:14
What great young talent? Kuz has peaked and Ingram has health issues.

12 Jun 2019 05:10:58
NO holds all the cards right now, they are not taking CP3's contract back for Davis.

11 Jun 2019 08:31:07

Rockets- Hayward, Jackson (exp), 15th pick


Pistons- Paul, J.Brown


Celtics- Drummond, B.Brown


10 Jun 2019 04:12:07
Houston trades Chris Paul + Clint Capella

Boston trades Horford (opt in) +Smart+#22.

10 Jun 2019 04:42:32
I would rather have Smart than Paul at this point of Paul's career. Smart is younger on a much cheaper contract and a better defender.

10 Jun 2019 08:42:16
Well defending is the only thing Smart is better than Paul. As long as the Rockets want to win they won't give up good players for worse players just to shed salary. Also Pick 22 doesn't help them right now.

I think the Celtics want to get a young Center in the age of their future core (Tatum, Brown, Smart) . I think they are Willingen to give up some picks. Could be a 3 team trade.

10 Jun 2019 10:09:32
Davis also fits that age timeline at 26. Which is probably Boston's first choice. However, Capela would be a nice 2nd choice.
Paulwould also be a nice fit
At his age and experience, would be a nice floor General for the Celtics young core.

10 Jun 2019 18:32:53
Houston could draft Herro or Guy at 22.

11 Jun 2019 01:26:30
Ps- if cp3 wasnt 40 million a year I might agree. He isn't worth 20 a year.

10 Jun 2019 02:26:35

HOU: Nicolas Batum, Malik Monk, Tony Parker

The Rockets get rid of Paul. His value will be very low because of his contract while this package might not be enough. I believe they are getting players that will fit well with their style.

split MLE to Wilson Chandler & Jeff Green


CHA: Chris Paul

Obvously, Hornets only do this if Kemba Walker leaves. Chris Paul will bring some leadership in Charlotte

Lamb/12th pick

09 Jun 2019 16:52:25
Celtics loose Kyrie, Rozier, Horford opts in, resing Marcus Morris

Celtics- Capela
Rockets- Smart, Williams, Baynes, 20

Celtics- pick #2, Mike Conely
Grizzlies- Horford, Brown, Yabusele, Ojehele, pick 14, 22, Grizzlies pick back, Celtics 2020 pick

Celtics new lineup-

09 Jun 2019 19:39:48
Dude, Memphis is not trading #2 AND Conley. Especially for thst enssable of average.

09 Jun 2019 23:03:33
Grizz keep the 2. And celtics keep Memphis future pick.
