Trade deadline possibility if Butler puts TWolves in a bad place and teams don't want to risk assets for half a season of Butler.

Thunder get Butler and Patton
T-Wolves get Schroder, Ferguson, Abrines, and 2 seconds
This trade would work I checked.

T-Wolves get a player that is still kinda young in Schroder that still hasn't reached his best, a good young prospect in Ferguson, a player to knock down 3's and improving at defense in Abrines, and 2 2nd round picks. This trade package is in the same ball park as what pacers got for George Schroder isn't quite oladipo and Ferguson might not be as imediate of a pay off as Sabonis but still has great potential. This is why I also threw in Abrines to make the money match and give them someone who can knock down the 3 and he has an expiring contract, I also added the 2 2nds to make it better. I know y'all are going to say no way they can get more, but everyone said that with George as well. And it depends on how bad of a spot Butler puts them in he could make it bad enough they just don't want to lose him for nothing but teams don't want to take a risk on him if he says he is entering FA.
Thunder do this because they can't make any big signings in FA unless they have bird rights to go over the luxury tax limit since they are already way over. They would have bird rights so they could sign Butler. Butler has said he wants to win and thunder is in a serious win now mode. Once Westbrook and Georges contract is up who knows what will happen and they are creeping closer and closer to older age. Thunder has a good core to build around now and this would give them better shooting and defense and a nice athletic big 3.
If this happened trade Singler for a filler at PG or PF no one good just a backup if absolutely needed. Then sign someone for the other position.

Thunder line up
Westbrook/ Felton/?
Butler/ TLC/ Diallo
George/ Roberson/ Nader
Grant/ Patterson/?
Adams/ Noel/ Patton
This team would make the conference finals.

07 Aug 2018 15:23:03
I would have to think that schroeder and wiggins would be the least efficient, worst shooting, and potentially worst defensive backcourt in the history of the nba. Not even exaggerating there. The wolves would be better letting butler walk than taking on schroeder.

08 Aug 2018 00:03:11
Pretty sure twolves let him walk before that deal nobody wants to pay them bums except okc.

06 Aug 2018 04:21:53
Pacers get - Drummond and Wagner

Pistons get - Deng Ingram Thad and Bogdanovic

Lakers get - Turner and Leuer




06 Aug 2018 11:35:50
This is awful for Detroit.

06 Aug 2018 13:53:34
I believe Ingram is going to be better than Drummond, so i don't think it's awfull for Detroit.

I don't dislike this for Indy, but i don't think Sabonis- Drummond would work, Turner isn't a great 3-point shooter, but atleast he can shoot the three.

I don't get it why LA would prefer Turner over Drummond. Drummond is locked for a few years and Turner is going to be a free agent. There's no need to involve Indy in this trade.

06 Aug 2018 15:29:29
Gasupo- Lakers are trying go get one year deals to keep max space for next summer.

06 Aug 2018 17:13:19
Yeah, but you don't refuse Drummond, if you can trade him for Ingram and Deng.
Otherwise they better keep Ingram and stretch Deng's contract over 4 years.

03 Aug 2018 02:46:13
Thunder lack a solid backup SF and have several young players that can battle for the backup SG position Ferguson, TLC, Diallo so I think they should trade Alex Abrines using the TPE from Melo trade to get a solid SF for the bench. Most of the trades would make the luxury bill go up a lot but Thunder could cut, trade, or stretch Singler to make them cheaper and open a roster spot after the trade.

Thunder get Demarre Carroll
Nets get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd

Thunder get Marvin Williams
Hornets get Abrines

Thunder get Korver
Cavs get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Bojan Bogdanovic
Pacers get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Josh Richardson
Heat get Abrines, 2 2 nd’s

Thunder get Tony Snell
Bucks get Abrines

Thunder get Courtney Lee
Knicks get Abrines, 1 2nd if needed

Thunder get Jonathan Simmons
Magic get Abrines 2 2nd’s

Thunder get CJ Miles
Raptors get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get Garrett Temple
Grizzlies get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get E'Twaun Moore
Pelicans get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Jae Crowder
Jazz get Abrines, 2 2nds

At trade deadline if Ariza won't sign with sun's next year
Thunder get Ariza
Suns get Abrines, 1 or 2 seconds

Give me your opinions. Will any of these work?

03 Aug 2018 05:24:03
Can't include a TPE with a player.

03 Aug 2018 06:13:48
Dang I didn't realize that. Well ignore all of those.

28 Jul 2018 08:15:06
The Lakers get Young, Bogdanovic, and Turner

The Pacers get Deng, Ball, Kuzm, and Hart

28 Jul 2018 10:11:33
It's probably fair but I think Indiana is looking to make a jump and that trade might take them a step back for the short term.

28 Jul 2018 15:13:40
Right now the Pacers should be looking to be a top 4 team in the East, and I think they've got a shot. They need a leap from Turner this year to really make a push though. He, Young, Sabonas and Leaf should make for a good front court, while they also have some really solid depth in the backcourt. They could actually be a sneaky good landing spot for Leonard in the offseason. They have the whole supporting cast, and just need a star to lead them.

28 Jul 2018 15:49:06
I don’t disagree with either of you, but it might be wise for them to take a quarter step back this year ( that team would still easily make the playoffs in the East) and then take a few leaps forward in the coming years. I like Turner, but he took a step back last year and he doesn’t seem assertive enough to ever be the number 2 for them. On top of that Sabonis made a huge leap last year and looks to be on the verge of becoming a quality starting center. Turner is obviously the higher upside guy, but if you can get a scoring combo forward, a blossoming Young sg and a 20 year old pg that is flawed by already does some thing at near elite level, I think it might be worth it. Young is old and gone after this year any way and while Bojan was good last year, he’s replaceable. He’s good shooter and solid score, but is average to below average every where else.

28 Jul 2018 16:34:38
Lakers will never do this. this one your worse trades I ever seen you post.

28 Jul 2018 17:29:27
Your right take deng out and its fair.

28 Jul 2018 18:11:27
Ball plays solid defense as a rookie. He should average 14 and 6 next year plus will get better. If James AND rondo weren't signed Ball would average 16 and 8. That's even to Turner. Lakers don't need the other players. So y trade Deng Hart and kuzma for young and bogdan. When the Lakers can trade Deng on draft night and there pick for nothing. Or trade Deng and two picks for George hill. For all that they would have a better player.

28 Jul 2018 21:00:55
This is worst trade everII aren't you the one who basically said the bucks should take a similar trade for Gianni and Middleton stop over valuing these crappy Lakers players they're not all that great.

29 Jul 2018 00:37:46
Yeah but I included Ingram and two first. Lakers are giving to much on this one big difference.

29 Jul 2018 00:48:27
Btw there not crapp there great for there age. Kuzma and ball first and second team all rookie. Hart showed lots of potential in summer league mvp. Far from crappy. Plus got king James as there leader, watch them blossom. Watch bucks get first round exit. Cheap skates let Parker walk there done.

19 Jul 2018 19:43:50
Kevin Love to Pacers for Thad Young and Cory Joseph and next 2 number 1s from Pacers. Pacers get back 2 #2s

19 Jul 2018 22:03:04
I don’t think it will take two #1’s, I think take out a one from the Pacers, and eliminate the two’s from the Cavs.

19 Jul 2018 22:22:35
You can't trade back to back picks, but the general idea isn't bad imo.

19 Jul 2018 22:50:35
I like Love and we could offer one protected 1rst pick for him, but no way, we trade multiple picks for a 30 year old injury prone player.

24 Jul 2018 21:30:03
cavs just signed Love to a 4 year 120 million extension so much for this trade idea.

17 Jul 2018 05:14:54
Magic Trade Evan Fournier Terrance Ross 2019 first round pick unprotected to Pacers

Pacers Trade Victor Oladipo Cory Joseph

17 Jul 2018 05:35:37
North Pole: Santa Claus

OZ: The Wizard.

17 Jul 2018 05:50:57
After last year Oladipo is worth more and Pacers really value him. No way this happens.

17 Jul 2018 08:04:48
This must be a joke.

18 Jul 2018 20:11:16
@ BTEC The North Pole would want a 1st rdr unprotected. After all Santa flies, the Wizard crashed in his only flight. Other than that a good trade.

08 Jul 2018 18:19:04
Parker sign trade ideas...
Lets pretend he signs for 3 years 56 mil and the wolves don't want him around due to attitude/injuries.

Mil - Plumlee, Beasley, 2019 lottery protected 1st
Den - Parker

MIl - Carroll, Dinwiddie
Brooklyn - Parker

Mil - T. Young, Leaf or Sabonis
Indiana - Parker

MIl - Harkless, Collins
Portland - Parker

08 Jul 2018 18:21:08
*Bucks not wolves.

08 Jul 2018 18:30:37
jabari is not getting that kind of payday, sorry. but the portland trade is decent.

08 Jul 2018 19:20:34
MIL can't take more than 10-11 mil back from a Parker s/ t.

08 Jul 2018 19:43:18
Look the bucks should keep him and take the risk cause nobody is coming to the bucks via draft or free agency the talent of Parker anytimesoon.

08 Jul 2018 19:44:48
Nobody on this list had anywhere near the talent parker has.

08 Jul 2018 23:17:14
The Bucks seem to have Parker in a spot where they can strong arm him into a pretty favorable deal. Can he really risk signing a 1 year deal. If they can get him on something 3 years at 12 million per and get a 1 year option at the end, it seems worth it to take the risk on him. Even if the fit with Giannis isn't great as long as he proves he can be healthy, he could be the key to getting a star that can keep Giannis healthy. Your going to get next to nothing for him in a sign and trade. It'd be to easy to just throw an 1 or 2 year deal above what the Bucks are willing to pay him, if someone like Sacramento wanted him bad enough.

09 Jul 2018 00:02:33
Dona - I’d be surprised if Parker doesn’t get at least that. At least 2 teams out there think Lavine is worth 19.5 per over 4 years. I’d say Parker is worth at least 18. Parker > Lavine IMO. Young dudes who can score get paid regardless of defense and injury concerns.

09 Jul 2018 18:17:15
I wouldn't give up Zach Collins for Parker.

07 Jul 2018 04:07:29

TOR: Melo

OKC: Young, Bogdanovic

IND: Ibaka

07 Jul 2018 05:21:49
Worst move in pacer history?

07 Jul 2018 11:30:41
Big no for Indy.

07 Jul 2018 14:30:03
Why the hell would The Pacers do this?
Seriously, please explain lol.

06 Jul 2018 16:15:28
Kemba Walker to Indiana for Darren collinson,Ike anibogu,Alex poythress,tj leaf,2019 1st,2021 2nd

06 Jul 2018 16:56:25
Pacers let anibogu go I'm pretty sure.

06 Jul 2018 17:40:15
only makes sense if signs an extension.

06 Jul 2018 18:10:59
No he’s still on the team.

07 Jul 2018 14:37:25
Wayyyy to much for Kemba. Plus only got one year left and he’s not that much better than collinson. Doesn’t warrant that big of a return for a guy with one year.

02 Jul 2018 21:21:48
Knicks next 2 offseasons

Trade nilikina,lee and 2020 1st rnd pick to indiana for myles turner

03 Jul 2018 00:33:13

02 Jul 2018 03:21:22

Bogdanovich and Jefferson for Carmelo anthony

27 Jun 2018 01:49:05
If Thad Young opts out


Pacers trade Al Jefferson (waive) to the Hornets for Marvin Williams

Pacers sign Will Barton (3yr/ 33mill)

Pacers sign Tyreke Evans (2yr/ 20mill)

Pacers Lineup:

PG: Collison, Joseph, Holiday
SG: Oladipo, Evans, Young
SF: Bogdanovic, Barton, Poythress
PF: Williams, Leaf, Johnson
C: Turner, Sabonis, Ike.

27 Jun 2018 05:30:39
I don’t think the pacers have that much cap space.

27 Jun 2018 14:31:20
Thad’s contract is 13 mill, plus they got rid of Stephenson’s 4 mill contract, and they have nearly 20 mill left.

26 Jun 2018 05:56:11
Magic Trade Even Fournier to Cavs

Cavs Trade Jr Smith 2019 second round pick to Magic

Pacers Trade Al Jefferson to Cavs

Cavs Trade Tristan Thompson to Pacers


26 Jun 2018 06:27:12
It's pretty good. Thompson could be helpful if young opts out. Leaves them room to sign Evans if he wants to leave griz.

26 Jun 2018 07:03:42
The Pacers would need a small asset.

26 Jun 2018 08:11:18
I can't see Indy doing this, without a first round pick.

26 Jun 2018 12:46:15
Magic say no without at least a 1st.

26 Jun 2018 13:52:51
The first deal is contingent on whether Orlando wants to rebuild or not. If they want to free themselves of Fournier’s three years of contract left, they may consider this with 2nds.

Pacers say big no to that deal.

26 Jun 2018 21:32:57
Fournier is a solid starter puts up 17-18pts per game, good 3 point shooter and an alright defender he’s worth more then a 2nd rounder as that’s all their getting as smith ain’t part of the future.
I’d do this deal if you switched Fournier for Ross expiring contract.

25 Jun 2018 05:55:30
Magic Trade Nikola Vucevic to Cavs

Cavs Trade Jordan Clarkson 2019 second round pick to Magic

Cavs Trade Tristan Thompson to Dallas to clear cap space

Dallas Trade Two Second round pick 2020 & 2019 to Cavs

Cavs Trade Jr Smith 2021 first round to Pacers

Pacers Trade Lance Stevenson 2020 second round pick to Cavs

Cavs can get rid of Jr Smith Tristan Thompson Jordan Clarkson off the books

25 Jun 2018 07:52:39
Why would give Cleveland anything for TT? Cavs are going to have to kick in a sweetener to move him, not get something for him. Have you not seen how these deals work? Look at Raptors/ Nets DeMarre Carroll as an example.

25 Jun 2018 09:55:01
Dont get so upset Triangle, this guy is just another delusional Cavs fan.

25 Jun 2018 12:22:26
I was trying to clear cap room for Superstar in Free Agency so I rather give Tristan Thompson up for free he trash anyway.

25 Jun 2018 12:38:32
Oh I understand that, but he just won’t stop posting. Between him and lilj, this site is just littered with terrible Cavs posts.

25 Jun 2018 15:21:41
Ugh😕 I don't want LeBron James to leave.

25 Jun 2018 17:17:13
Don't fret. How many teams are willing to pay him 35 mil? Not many. Then not have practices so the young guys can build chemistry? It's a tough thing to ask of any organization and coach. Lbj if he wants the pay and a future stake in the cavs ownership is staying around.

25 Jun 2018 17:24:52
Macs rejected all trades during draft that involved in coming contracts. They are not taking TT and giving up cap space.

21 Jun 2018 15:44:44

21 Jun 2018 17:23:02
Lakers are definitely holding out for news with Leonard or lbj before anything like this would go down. The draft I'm thinking is too soon for either Leonard or lbj situations to be decided.

21 Jun 2018 18:43:02
not that lowry’s and derozan’s value are super high rn. but tor should get more for their two best players than ingram and two really bad contracts, maybe give them hart and j. simmons from orl or even fournier (bad contract but he isn't a terrible player) and swap out batum for williams maybe.

21 Jun 2018 21:40:51
Raps aren't is taking deng, batum contracts.

21 Jun 2018 02:38:42

21 Jun 2018 04:56:33
I think walker is worth more than faried and 14.

21 Jun 2018 13:18:44
Faried disappeared.

20 Jun 2018 19:56:09

Pacers trade Al Jefferson (waive), Bojan Bogdanvic (only 2 mill guaranteed), and 1st round pick to the Mavs for Harrison Barnes

21 Jun 2018 01:18:15
Gordon has no ties to Indy and will not sign there and magic will match it.

19 Jun 2018 06:33:00

19 Jun 2018 13:13:18
You can’t trade for a guy and then stretch him, as I have told you before.

19 Jun 2018 14:18:26
Actually reasonable.

18 Jun 2018 04:49:20
Cavs rebuild:

Cavs send: Love
Mem send: Parsons, Pick 4 & 32

Cavs send: Thompson, pick 32
Mavs send: Noel S&T (1+TO 5m/y)

Cavs send: Lebron (Opt in)
Phi send: Bayless (Exp), pick 26, '20 top 10 protected

Cavs send: Smith (Exp)
Cha send: MKG, '20 2nd top 40 protected

Cavs send: Korver
OKC send: Picks 53 & 37

Cavs send: Hill (Exp), Pick 53 & 57
NY send: Noah, pick 9

Cavs send: Clarkson, Zizic
Pacers send: Jefferson (Waive), pick 23

Resign Hood: 50m/4y
Sign McDermott 1+PO 4m/y (Cap Space)
Sign Exum 1+TO 8m/y (MLE)

Draft: 4 Bamba, 8 Young, 9 Porter, 23 C.Hutchison

PG: Young, Exum, Bayless
SG: Hood, Osman, Hutchison
SF: Porter, Parsons
PF: Nance, MKG, McDermott
C: Bamba, Noel, Noah

'19 aim is to tank to keep their 1st (top 5 protected I think). This team is now a non-tax team, has multiple high upside prospects (Bamba, Young, Porter), a couple of wild card prospects (Hood, Exum, Noel) and some rock solid young role players (Nance & Osman).

18 Jun 2018 11:29:02
You think Osman and nance are solid?

17 Jun 2018 16:12:35
Couple of LMA deals

Like my Kawhi post, should the Spurs move Claw for youth, going into rebuild mode may be the best course of action. If so, LMA probably goes as well. Here’s some deals I like for him, let me know which deals, if any, you like.

#1 - To LAC

LMA for Boban, Rivers, pick 13, Thornwell

Clips bring in a front court scorer to put beside Jordan. Harris, LMA, Jordan will Danilo in reserve is a pretty good 3-4-5. Spurs get two expiring deals, a decent prospect, and a late lottery pick.

#2 - To MEM

LMA, Pick 17 for Parsons, Pick 4, Pick 32

If Memphis wants to retool vs. rebuild, they add LMA to Gasol and Conley while also staying in the 1st round. Spurs take on a bad deal, but get an impact player at 4 and another rotation piece at 32.

#3 - To IND

LMA for Thad, Joseph, pick 23

Thad has to opt in for this to happen. If he does though, Spurs get a quality player on an expiring deal, bring a solid backup guard home and add a first. Pacers add to a team that surprised last year, and if Bron does head west, could be a dark horse ECF candidate.

17 Jun 2018 17:22:28
pacers trade seems closest to his value. sure he is coming off an all star season, but will be 33 and owed a lot of money the next 3 yrs.

17 Jun 2018 19:02:15
Pacers are a good team fit, not sure about the deal though.
