Hornets can attract a better package I think. That pick being so far into the future robs value from the trade too. I feel like the Hornets have the assets in Kaminski, Howard, Graham, Lamb, Monk, and this year's pick to undo some roster/ salary issues without having to lose Walker. If Walker goes, Zeller, or Batum need to go too before MKG, and Williams.

Unless the Cavs end up in the top 2 and trade down, I don't see how they could get a high pick and an allstar. If they could land the 1st and pull off something like Boston did that would be perfect. That's obviously a huge if, but if people want to buy into a rigged lottery, the Cavs adding a top pick and an allstar would be ideal for the league if Lebron is staying.

Thompson does not get you that kind of haul.

Agree5 Disagree4

17 Mar 2018 14:20:11
I'm not sure they get the 3rd 1st, but the number 1 can absolutely bet you that kind of haul. Boston just ended with the the 3rd pick and a pick structured in a way that it was almost guaranteed to be top 5. Ayton or Doncic both seem like they could be perfect fits for the 2 biggest holes in Phoenix's team. Doncic could be a point forward/ pg/ combo guard and be the facilitator for them. Obviously, Ayton brings them the center they need. Is that worth their 2nd 1st this year and 2 years of Thompson's deal? I would say it is.

Dacman the hual is not for Tristan Thompson it’s for that number 1 pick that could turn into a superstar Tristan is just a throw in.

Shizzee, one guy is a 26 year old role player on a playoff team making 16 million a year and the other is a 34 year old that's not allowed in the one of the worst teams in the league's practice facility making 18 million a year, but whatever makes you sleep at night.

Chandlers 13 mil, and the looming re-signing of Smart. Theiss, Horford, Baines, Monroe playing well makes this seem kind of expensive, and not Ainge-like, or good for BOS.

Knicks 2018 summer is busy with defensive moves.

Clippers get Hardaway Mudiay
Knicks get Beverly Ross Thornwell
Magic get Rivers

Pacers get C.Zeller Noah 2019 top 20 protected
Hornets get Kanter Young
Knicks get Howard Jefferson 53

Faried for Thomas Baker

Ntilikina to Suns for R.Williams-16th Joel Berry-58


NoKnicks add better defenders for next yr and the future. Plenty of cap space and plenty young talent to draw Irving and 2nd superstar in 2019

Believable3 Unbelievable8

18 Mar 2018 12:41:10
I still don't understand why the Knicks trade Ntilikina? You stated this summer is for defensive purposes yet you trade their best defender for 2 unproven prospects.

LAL/ORL Trade this off-season

LA needs to clear cap to make a run at 2 FA all stars, maybe LBJ and PG13

LA trades: Zubac, Deng, 2018 1st (CLE), & earliest future unprotected 1st (2020/2021)

ORL trades: Mario Hezonja

LA saves cap space, gets out of awful Deng contract, and let's Hezonja walk in FA

ORL stretches Deng, gets maybe a promising young player in Zubac, resigns Gordon, and gets a couple 1sts to sweeten the pot. ORL drafts Young with their own pick.

LA can then resign Randle and sign 2 FAs



Just a thought, what do you guys think?

Believable0 Unbelievable11

17 Mar 2018 01:01:53
Lakers can stretch Deng. They can keep randle plus sign George and James at 29 each.

Agree0 Disagree3

17 Mar 2018 20:54:40
Can’t trade MARIO he’s a free agent.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 22:36:30
The Magic only have around 18 million in cap space and that's without Mario's contract since he's a free agent. Also, that's without Gordon or anyone else's cap hold. I can't see them relinquishing the rights to Gordon. They being in close to 20 million. Even if they could fit that money in, I think it would be easier for the Lakers to work out a sign and trade with the Cavs or Thunder.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Mar 2018 04:14:51
Moat contracts expire early July, so technically Hezonja can be traded just before, during, and after the draft. I'm not reprised of Hezonja's exact expiration date. I could be wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2018 21:45:43
What if Lebron would opt in for a trade to the Lakers and didn't want to play with Ball, because of fit and the noise around him.

Ball and Deng for Lebron

If the Lakers accept all option that would put their cap number at 49 million and the cap should be around 100 million.

After signing George at around 35 million? I know they can't sign him for the super max so it shouldn't be to ridiculous of a number. That gives them 15 million to spend in free agency plus the the 9ish million MLE.

They could easily fit Bradley and Lopez into that and might have some cash left over.

Bradley/ Hart/ solid veteran

Add some ring chasing veterans and go after a 3 and D prospect or defensive big man with the Cavs pick.

Believable1 Unbelievable6

17 Mar 2018 01:13:54
That be good for the cavs if James wants out. Plus give the cavs Randle also. They would have ball, randle love hood and the Brook pick to build around plus Thompson is he can get it together. So love can get traded
Say George takes 30 and puts Lakers at 79 that's 22 left for DJ. Use mle on Evans
James/ evans
Noel/ zubak.

What if.

Agree2 Disagree2

17 Mar 2018 16:24:30
Shizzee, this whole site is what if and I've heard analysts mention that there are rumors that that may be the case. Lebron has been notably annoyed by TT bring the Kardashian stuff to the team and Ball doesn't play a style that seems like it would mesh well with Lebron. He's a solid defender, but on the offensive end, Ball needs the ball and doesn't spread the floor. I'm sure, they could make it work to a degree, but they may be better off keeping all of their other assets while getting rid of their 2 biggest contracts so that they can go out pieces that fit better than Ball.

Offseason trade idea:

Cleveland - Minnesota

Cleveland trades: J. R. Smith

Minnesota trades: Gorgui Dieng

Why for Cleveland?

Their big man rptation is laughable. Gorgui is overpaid but he's useful.

Why for Minnesota?

J. R. Smith has two guaranteed years left on his contract as opposed to Doengs four guaranteed years.

Believable1 Unbelievable8

16 Mar 2018 17:07:26
I'm just not sure what Dieng does that Thompson, Nance and Love can't do. He doesn't bring a ton of length, ability to guard the bigger centers in the league or elite rim protection and that's what the Cavs are lacking in. His skill set is pretty similiar to both Nance and Thompson. Obviously they could use him now with the injuries, but I don't see the need over the summer. If they could get a bigger center with the Brooklyn pick (Jackson, Bamba or Ayton) it would be nice, but in reality unless one those guys can come in and defend the rim at an elite leve, it's probably a second or tertiary need behind another elite scorer and an elite wing defender assuming Lebron is back.

Agree5 Disagree1

16 Mar 2018 17:13:08
Since it can't be done before the playoffs this season, I'd say maybe. After the smoke clears this off season it will be interesting where both these fellas end up.

Trading deadline is over u mean next yr.

16 Mar 2018 17:44:59
I don't believe Minnesota would want the "luggage" that J. R. Smith would bring. Dieng would be helpful in Cleveland (Another big body) But that would be about it. As rkeene_16 stated, The Cav's already have that.

Agree5 Disagree0

16 Mar 2018 18:00:29
Minnesota has no real reason to do this. And Dieng has 3 years left after this year and is a better time protector than either Love or Thompson.

I don't like this one for Minny.

Charlotte looks to be trying to get younger and shed salary. I don't see them being interested in Aldridge. They're not very good and Aldridge isn't putting them over the top. Plus, you can't legally trade back to back 1sts. I don't think you're getting much more than non lottery pick and a low end starter or mid level prospect out of him unless there is a bad contract involved.

If I'm the Spurs, I want to keep Leonard and in that trade and if they have to trade him, I would want the Lakers pick from Philly instead of their own. Even then I would probably want more and if Leonard can come back this season and look good, I think they might get it.

If they trade Leonard, they have almost no chance at getting a star in free agency. The draw is the combo of Pop and Kawhi. If either isn't there, there is no appeal to going to San Antonio.

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Mar 2018 17:19:08
I could see both being contributors, and completing those 2 teams rosters. That being said, Aldridge is from Houston I think, so when Spurs tire of him there are 2 other Texas teams to keep him close to home. He left POR for that reason supposedly. Home. K. Leonard went to San Diego State, so I see him L. A. Bound when Spurs tire of him. I think he's also a California/ L. A native.

Agree0 Disagree4

18 Mar 2018 06:47:23
yeah but aldridge is unhappy in spurs and spurs almost traded him for last year draft pick top 5.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Mar 2018 06:54:23
Jorgawood aldridge is texas native he is from dallas not to houston and dallas want aldridge to go home because dirk nowitzki is older and maybe this is his last season and leonard si LA native LA and 76ers will pursue leonard in 2019 free agency if leonard will not extend his contract in spurs and leonard will leave spurs during 2019 offseason they supposed to be traded in trade deadline this next season.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Mar 2018 14:39:35
Who says these guys are supposed to be traded besides the mainstream media? I'm sorry, but when ESPN is still reporting "Ayton is not suspended, and denies taking any money". I have a hard time trusting them. The CBS conglomerate was pushing that narrative during the first round too. The story has always been from its origin by S. I. That Sean Miller was paid 100,000 for he and staff to influence Ayton to sign with a specific agent. Why the distortion of facts? Now the Wiggins story which Wiggins denies, and Thibs. They could all be lying, or some are telling the truth. So, I'm not banking on the media rumor SA is getting ready to blow up their franchise because these media types claim its the latest scandal. Sports reporting has turned into the Jerry Springer show from what I'm seeing. Maybe always has been. I don't know. I just see the inconsistency in stories.

CLE get Moe Harkless

POR sign Jahlil Okafor min

Sf James/Layman
Pf Aminu/Davis/Swanigan
Ce Nurkic/Okafor

Believable0 Unbelievable11

16 Mar 2018 13:19:03
Lillard has a much higher chance of going to CLE, and joining Lebron there, than James playing in POR. James is a big city/ big market guy. It's one of the main reasons L. A. Or NY has a shot at him even though all 4 teams in those city's are in rebuild mode.

Agree4 Disagree2

16 Mar 2018 13:23:40
It'll take a lot more than Zach Collins to dump Evan Turner's contract. No one wants to pay him $17-18M/ season. I like the second trade with Dallas. Only slight change is to put a protection on the 1st. And why in the world would Cleveland take Moe Harkless for LeBron. I think the Cavaliers rather lose LeBron for nothing than to take back Harkless.

Agree8 Disagree1

16 Mar 2018 14:31:58
Why would the Cavs want Harkless? They'll already be near the luxury tax if they resign Hood and Harkless makes no sense during a rebuild. He's not all that young, doesn't have much upside, isn't a star player, and has little secondary trade value. Plus, if the Cavs would need to get some serious assets back for them to be willing to help a team acquire Lebron.
