Rockets Trade Eric Gordon PJ Tucker James Ennis 2020 first round pick lottery protected

Wolves Trade Jimmy Butler Tyus Jones

Brandon Knight Out Injures

Both teams will Agreed this deal

Rockets can also get Solid Back up Point Guard

10 Oct 2018 19:56:30
Um, no from Minnesota. Plus, Rockets can't trade Ennis until mid December.

It has also been reported that Jimmy Butler practiced with Minnesota today.

10 Oct 2018 20:15:00
Carl- and reported he ripped the team at the practice. He will be traded or he will ruin that locker room.

11 Oct 2018 00:48:00
Butler told everyone basically the wolves were all in on towns and Wiggins but not him. The wolves could match any offer, by demanding a sign and trade for his new 30+ mil. Deal, the wolves could maybe get more keeping him until next summer? Not sure if this is even possible without butlers cooperation.

09 Oct 2018 06:48:05
Kings send: '23 2nd (won't convey)
Receive: Nene (buyout/waive), 3m cash, '20 2nd
Get a 2nd for using their cap space.

Twolves send: Butler
Receive: Gordon, Qi, '20 & '22 1st, '19 2nd, '23 2nd
Get a couple of firsts, a starting calibre SG and a couple of other small assets for Butler.

Rockets send: Gordon, Nene, Qi, '20 & '22 1st, '19 & '20 2nd, 3m cash
Receive: Butler

PG: Paul, Knight
SG: Harden, Green
SF: Butler, Ennis
PF: Tucker, Melo
C: Capella, Chriss

05 Oct 2018 14:44:37
Houston gets Butler and Dieng

Minnesota gets Knight (exp), Gordon, Chriss, 2019 1st, and 2021 1st lottery protected

Minnesota probably gets less than they want, but it's a decent package that checks all the boxes.

Houston goes all in and ends up with a team that can beat the Warriors.

05 Oct 2018 16:13:24
Knight isn't an expiring.

05 Oct 2018 17:05:28
My fault on that.

03 Oct 2018 22:15:14

Dallas helped rockets get the deals done

30 Sep 2018 10:09:50
This are in conference rivals. I don’t see this happening.

30 Sep 2018 15:53:59
I hate this for Minny.

01 Oct 2018 23:54:23
Only winner is Houston. T-Wolves, Mavs say no.

Houston trades Gordon, Tucker for Butler makes more sense.

30 Sep 2018 06:27:39
Dallas Trade Harrison Barnes Dwight Powell

Rockets Trade Eric Gordon PJ Tucker Nene

T-Wolves - Rockets

Rockets get: Jimmy Butler

T-Wolves get: Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker

30 Sep 2018 05:39:25
Rockets not going to Trade Tucker points I rather Trade Gerald Green or Carmelo Anthony.

30 Sep 2018 06:01:42
Rockets with Butler can challenge Warriors. Without Butler they cannot.

I think that T-Wolves would do this deal also. They might even ask for a draft choice from Houston. If they do, Houston should say yes.

30 Sep 2018 09:22:21
What did the rockets do last year without Butler, I believe they challenged the warriors and could won if stayed healthy.

29 Sep 2018 13:27:46
Rockets Trade Gerald Green Eric Gordon Nene 2020 first round pick unprotected

Wolves Trade Jimmy Butler

28 Sep 2018 13:47:37
Minnesota trades Butler to New Orleans.

Pelicans get Butler
Timberwolves get Moore, Hill, 2019 1st, and option to swap picks in either 2021 or 2022

Pelicans get a third star to compete for a championship. They can go against both Houston and Golden State

Minnesota doesn't get the best return, but don't take on any bad money. They will be in good cap position over the next couple of years. They also take a chance on Davis leaving New Orleans and getting an opportunity to get a good pick via swap.

28 Sep 2018 19:58:03
Soloman Hill is as close to untradable as any player in the league. Too big of a tird in the punchbowl for this deal.

28 Sep 2018 21:34:00
I can't see Minny taking that deal.

28 Sep 2018 07:08:31
Rockets are pushing hard for Jimmy Butler. I don't think they will give Gordon for him and they can't trade Chriss in combination with another player so this is only possible deal I can see happening.

Rockets get Butler

Twolves get Tucker, Nene, Qi, Caboclo, V. Edwards, Rockets 1st and 2nd rounder

Paul/ Knight/ MCW
Harden/ Gordon
Butler/ Green/ Ennis
Anthony/ Chriss
Capela/ Hartenstein.

28 Sep 2018 15:47:08
Timberwolves don’t have that many roster spots open.

28 Sep 2018 20:02:15
Rockets not pushing hard enough. Gordan plus Tucker might get T-Wolves attention.

27 Sep 2018 02:00:14
Butler to the Rockets

Eric Gordon, Gerald Green and 2 future firsts to T'Wolves

PG: Chris Paul, Brandon Knight, Michael Carter-Williams
SG: James Harden
SF: Jimmy Butler, James Ennis III, Bruno Caboclo
PF: PJ Tucker, Carmelo Anthony, Marquese Chriss
C: Clint Capela, Nene, Zhou Qi

PG: Jeff Teague, Tyus Jones, Josh Okogie
SG: Eric Gordon, Derrick Rose, C.J Williams
SF: Andrew Wiggins, Luol Deng
PF: Taj Gibson, Anthony Tolliver, Keita Bates-Diop
C: Karl-Anthony Towns, Gorgiu Dieng, Justin Patton

27 Sep 2018 17:19:57
i think pj tucker needs to be included rather than green.

27 Sep 2018 01:18:39
Rockets try to get Butler:

Wolves send: Butler, Dieng, Jones
Receive: Gordon, Tucker, Nene, '19 &'21 1st (Rockets)
Stay competitive and get 2 future firsts

Kings send: McLemore
Receive: Dieng (Stretch & Waive), Qi, Bucks 1st (Via Suns), '20 2nd
Get a couple of picks and a prospect for a Dieng dump

Suns send: Bucks 1st
Receive: Jones, '19 2nd
Get their PG who can start

Rockets send: Gordon, Tucker, Nene, Qi, '19 & '20 2nd, '19 & '21 1st
Receive: Butler, McLemore

PG: CP3, Knight
SG: Harden, McLemore
SF: Butler, Green
PF: Melo, Ennis
C: Capela, Chriss

On a side note, after Dieng is presumably waived, I'd like to see him sign for the Lakers

27 Sep 2018 02:14:21
I'm guessing you don't care for the Lakers much if you want them to sign Dieng to a minimum contract that no other team would likely give him because they could be developing a young player in that slot.

27 Sep 2018 05:00:09
@Btec McGee is best used as a spark plug off the bench. Wagner is at least a year off from handling opposition Cs on D. Zubac is yet to show he should be a rotation big. I think for a non-guaranteed vet min Dieng could start for them before they move to their version of the "death lineup"

27 Sep 2018 11:51:28
I comprehend that. Dieng puts up Nene #'s. Are you really going to sign nearly age 30 Dieng when you could have a younger player developing? Dieng doesn't have a lot of mystery to his future potential. I doubt anyone gives him more than a 1 year guaranteed vet minimum, if anyone even picks him up. Especially the Lakers, who have wagner, McGee, zubac all younger, better, cheaper already.

23 Sep 2018 22:10:25
Rockets Trade Eric Gordon Zhou Qui Nene
2020 first round pick

Wolves Trade Jimmy Butler

Rockets will making to finals to beat GSW in 7 Games

24 Sep 2018 01:07:27
Terrible for Minnesota.

18 Sep 2018 17:23:14
4 nba trades, Give thoughts

1. Hawks get Vucevic and Augustin
- Gives Trae Young help on offense
Magic get Lin and Dedmon
- Gives Magic a starting PG and 2 exp deals

2. Pistons get Gordon
- Get much needed perimeter shooting/scoring
Rockets get Johnson and Leuer
- Get a lockdown perimeter defender and stretch 4

3. Bucks get Whiteside
- Gets a rim protector/great rebounder
Heat get Delly and Henson
- Gets true backup PG and backup C

4. Clips get McCollum
- Gets a go to scorer and better chance at getting Kawhi (trade Gallo)
Blazers get Bradley and Harris
- gets defensive backcourt partner for Lillard and much need forward scoring

18 Sep 2018 19:33:53
@ NBA16, No team wants Whiteside. He's an overpaid head case on and off the court! I think the Bucks would rather stay with Over paid players in Henson and Dellavedova. Not quite as much of a distraction on and off the court.

19 Sep 2018 00:19:09
I would love to take Whiteside if he came with one of Heat’s SFs (Richardson or Winslow) . The fact that Whiteside is thought to be a headacase only serves to lessen his perceived value. Everyone agrees Whiteside had a down year last year right. He still averaged 14 pts. 11 rebs. And 2.5 Blks. He suffered through several injuries as well. He arguably had a better year than Kevin Love in a down year. Give me this guy any day.

19 Sep 2018 12:53:03
Magic hung up lol.

18 Sep 2018 03:51:37
Jimmy Butler trade Ideas:

1) Heat send: T.Johnson, Richardson, Winslow, 2x2nds
Receive: Butler, Dieng

2) Bucks send: Brogdon, Middleton
Receive: Butler

3) Sixers send: Covington, Chandler, McConnell 1x 2nd
Receive: Butler

4) Rockets send: Gordon, Chriss, Nene, 2x 1st
Receive: Butler

5) Pacers send: Bogdanovic, Joseph, Sabonis 1x 1st, 1x 2nd
Receive: Butler

6) Raptors send: Ibaka, Powell, OG, 1x 2nd
Receive: Butler, Dieng


18 Sep 2018 12:59:22
I don't think the bucks do this middleton is pretty similar player to butler.

18 Sep 2018 15:36:53
If I'm Indy, I'd probably rather give up Turner than Sabonis. But I like the fit of Butler in Indy.

Butler to Toronto would be a great team.

I think Phili would have to give up more. Probably Saric instead of Chandler. But a big 3 of Embidd, Simmons, and Butler would probably be the favorites in the East to me. Phili should really push for that.

The Bucks trade is fairly even. I think Minny would take the step down in talent for a better chance to resign Middleton. And the Bucks would finally have an elite guy to go with Giannis. They'd be smart to roll the dice on resigning him, considering the inability to get high end talent any other way.

19 Sep 2018 00:44:16
Thanks for the input, I think Butler is leaving before opening night.

19 Sep 2018 04:49:43
All of these trades are too much for Butler. He should be considered a one year rental. Even if he agrees to sign an extension, he is going to want a max deal. Too much for a 30 year old. I would steer clear of Butler.

12 Sep 2018 16:52:29
Deadline deal

The Timberwolves get Gordon, Chriss, Qi, Houston's 1st and a 2nd

Houston gets a super charged version of Ariza on d and a guy that limit what Harden and Paul have to do on offense during the regular season plus give them that third elite offensive player in the playoffs. You could really scale back what Paul has to do during the 2nd half of the regular season and try to get him to the playoffs healthy and rested. If that happens and Butler meshes well with the team, the Warriors might be in trouble.

The Timberwolves get a real player in Gordon and some young talent, if they know Butler is gone.

13 Sep 2018 07:17:01
I like this idea, but I think the trade starting point would be Gordon, Chriss, 2 1st. But Houston would essentially have 120m tied up in 4 players if they resigned Butler.

I would love to see Curry v CP3, Klay v Harden, KD v Butler, Dray v Melo, Boogie v Capela over a 7 game series.

13 Sep 2018 20:20:50
Yeah, I was debating wether it should be 2 1sts or a 1st and a 2nd. I think it all depends on wether teams think he’s likely to resign or not. If there’s a clear favorite it might have ish his value down.

10 Sep 2018 18:56:10

Adams and Roberson from the Thunder and Aldridge from the Spurs. Adams and Aldridge has three years remaining on their contracts.


Young and Bogdanovic from the Pacers.


Oladipo and Sabonis from the Paul George Trade and Thunder give the Pacers draft picks in the Future to make this trade complete.

Thunder Starting Lineup


Maybe not perfect but according to the NBA Trade Machine -- Thunder gained 7 wins and with Oladipo and Ferguson handling the Shooting Guard spot and Westbrook and Schroder at the point -- our guards in good hands.

You can give the monies to Sabonis to anchor the Center spot and with Grant and Patterson at the Power Forward spot -- the Thunder has finally got the depth at every position and with Noel backing up Sabonis were set to be a better team than the Rockets and I believe that we don't need 1st Round Picks until 2022 to rebuild. I know this trade is a dream trade for OKC -- but I will face backlash from you guys and believe me if Presti can pull this off -- OKC can challenge the Warriors seriously.

10 Sep 2018 19:02:07
you just gave me a hartattack.
Can you explain me why the Pacers would do this?

10 Sep 2018 19:41:26
The Pacers won’t and shouldn’t trade Oladipo.

10 Sep 2018 19:49:27
Spurs say no.

10 Sep 2018 21:07:38
I love how the trade is essentially "Oops, sorry, we gave you too good of players for Paul George. Could you please give them back and take these two inferior players instead? " OKC fans are hilarious.

10 Sep 2018 21:58:18
Also, it's two separate trades, not one big one:

Young and Bogdanovic for Aldridge (terrible for SA)

Oladipo and Sabonis for Adams and Roberson (horrible for Indy, like hilariously horrible for Indy) . I'd probably take Sabonis over Adams due to Adams bad contract, and Oladipo is lightyears above Roberson.

You're right, you'll get backlash. But that's only because this trade is reeeeealy one sided. Like D_Drainer or MD_StaySmooth one sided.

02 Sep 2018 04:13:42
Rockets Trade Nene to Nets for 2019 second round pick 2.5 million cash

Rockets sign Luol Deng 2 yrs Minimum

02 Sep 2018 16:01:35
Deng is a waste of a roster spot and I doubt anyone would have interest in trading a 2nd for Nene.

02 Sep 2018 00:48:20
Rockets sign Luol Deng 2 yrs Minimum Contract

Rockets Trade Nene to Nets for 2019 second round pick
