Pacers: J Wall

Was: Sabonis+ C Joseph+ Jefferson+ 1rnd pick 2018 and 2019

25 Apr 2018 03:22:21
I actually like Sabonis and Joseph, but they're role players and won't get you Wall, even with the picks.

25 Apr 2018 08:49:00
would adding Leaf make a difference?

24 Apr 2018 12:30:03
Knicks - Pacers

Knicks get:
24th pick

Pacers gets:
Hardaway Jr.

24 Apr 2018 13:11:27
ok? So hardaway on an unfavorable longterm contract gets you last years first round pick and another #1 pick this year? / Pacers never would consider this.

21 Apr 2018 23:47:22

Nuggets get #23 pick and Al Jefferson (only $4m guaranteed)

Pacers get #14 pick and Kenneth Faried.

22 Apr 2018 09:37:41
I would love this for the pacers.

18 Apr 2018 04:55:11
Noah comeback season starts with a little faith by management. Than loosing 15 lbs to start at center. It seems like long shot from happening but with Porzingis out until 2019 and Kanter considering opting out, no other option. Hopefully ny native Bamba falls to 9th or or knicks get higher pick to land him. Eventually playing Noah will restore some value to trade him at trading deadline

Hardaway Mudiay for Mathews Barea
Lee Thomas for Bayless Korkmaz Anderson Cabarrot

Pacers get Felicio
Bulls get Noah Kornet
Knicks get Asik Jefferson

By end of the season

2019 summer
Trade Korkmaz for 2 late 2nd
Buy 2nd
Harris get 4yr 100 mil
Walker get 4yr 100 mil
Thompson get 4yr 120 mil
Now Porzingis sign extension 5yr 200mil


18 Apr 2018 14:15:35
How is that Knicks team any better than it is now? Dotson starting at the 3? TLC at the 2?

Also, it ain't going to happen for Noah. The 15 pounds are not the issue, it's that he's past his prime.

18 Apr 2018 15:33:28
Noah is never going to be a starting player in the league again. He just doesn't have it in him physically. What he can do, is become a solid low minute bench player who comes in and wreaks havoc for a few minutes a game. He's going to be insanely overpaid for that role, but he could be a good player for a team that's rebuilding with cheap contracts. What I envision for him is a PJ Brown type of role for the 2008 Celtics. the trouble will be finding a team that's the caliber of that Celtics team with enough space to absorb the contract.

16 Apr 2018 12:23:34
Off Season Blockbuster


SAS get: Andrew Wiggins, Domantas Sabonis, Gorgui Dieng, Darren Collison (exp), Al Jefferson (exp), 2018 1st DP IND and 2x Future 1st MIN

Pg. Murray
Sg. Green
Sf. Wiggins
Pf. Sabonis
C. Dieng

MIN get: Kawhi Leonard and Cory Joseph

Pg. Rose/ Joseph
Sg. Butler
Sf. Leonard
Pf. Gibson
C. Towns

IND get: Lamarcus Aldridge and Jeff Teague

Pg. Teague
Sg. Oladipo
Sf. Bogdonovich
Pf. Aldridge
C. Turner

16 Apr 2018 18:58:30
Rose as a starting PG is a terrible idea.

16 Apr 2018 20:03:24
I really like aldridge, but whe don't need him.

17 Apr 2018 03:14:46
Teague already played here once under Nate anddidn't like it not trading 4 players and picks either.

14 Apr 2018 15:18:20
The Hornets get Thad Young(exp), Collison(exp), Jefferson,(exp), Stephenson(exp), Leaf, Poythress, and the Indiana 18 1st plus they save 15 million this year and clear 50 million from the books next summer.

The Pacers get Walker, Batum, Gilchrest, and Lamb

The Hornets don't get a ton of assets for Walker, but they get rid of Batum's terrible deal and clear the books, while adding a few young assets.

The Pacers get their second star, Batum may start for them at sf, Gilchrest give them a big wing defender that they don't really have that can guard guys like Giannis, Simmons and Lebron, and Lamb is starting to turn into a six man that can give you scoring with a second unit. The best part is Walkwr , MKG, and Lamb are all young enough to fit the team's timeline and they don't give up very much except cap space, which Indy will find hard to use anyway.

12 Apr 2018 16:20:50
Cavs off-season

Spurs get Lebron and Patterson

Cavs get Gasol, Murray, Singler, Abrines 2 Spurs 1st, the Thunder 22 1st top 5 protected and a 2nd

OKC gets Korver and Danny Green

2nd trade

The Cavs get Turner, Harkless, Leonard, Sabonis, Swanigan, 19 and 21 1sts , and 18 and 20 Pacers 1sts

The Pacers get Love and Hill

Portland gets Thad Young, Clarkson, Bogdonavic and Jefferson

3rd trade
The Knicks get Jr Smith (buyout), Singler and Nance

The Cavs get Noah and the Knicks 18 1st

Cavs New roster

Pg Murray
Sg Hood/ Abrines
Sf Osman/Harkless/Turner
Pf Swanigan/ Gasol
C Sabonis/Zizic/ Leonard/Noah
Payroll approximately 110 million including the 18 picks.
+ 18 Nets, Knicks, Spurs and Pacers 1sts
19 Cavs (if in the top 10), Portland 1sts
20 Cavs, Spurs, Pacers 1sts
21 Cavs, Portland 1sts
22 Cavs, Thunder 1sts

I also think they should be willing to deal Gasol(19-20 is only partially guaranteed), Harkless, Abrines, Hood, and Murray at the deadline for the right price (in that order). Gasol for 1st if someone wants to move a big contract, Harkless and Abrines for a 2nd or 2, a young player with some potential, or a some decent cap relief. Hood for mid 1st round pick and some cap relief and Murray for a potetial top 10 pick. Potentially make a run at Wiggins if the Cavs can get him cheap.

Buyout Turner, Leonard, Noah, and possibly Gasol ans Harkless next summer. Even if they can only save a few million from each, it should keen them out of the luxury tax.

15 Apr 2018 00:37:44
Trades have to work for all parties involved. If you think the Pacers would give up 2 players and 2 first round picks to a division rival along with 2 additional players to another team and then only receive 2 players in return your crazy.

15 Apr 2018 04:49:03
Trades are suppose to work for all party involved. If you think the Pacers would trade 2 young up and coming players and 2 first round draft picks to a division rival and 3 other players for a pg whose best days are behind him, and an overpaid PF you're crazy.

12 Apr 2018 01:02:45
Pacers/T-Wolves Trade

Pacers Receive: Andrew Wiggins

The Pacers get a defensive, slashing wing who will fit well next to Olandipo. They will be a defensive force together. Although Wiggins doesn't become the first option in this scenario, he will be a top 2 option on a team and will be playing for a contending team.

T-Wolves Receive: Bojan Bogndanovic, 22nd overall pick

The T-Wolves need to gain some depth and youth. Due to trading for Jimmy Butler, many of the T-Wolves young assets are gone. With the 22nd pick they could still pick up a sleeper. Bojan Bogdanovic will also be a good shooter next to Jimmy Butler.

12 Apr 2018 04:15:31
If MIN is done with him. Question is where does IND value Wiggins at? Would put them just below the luxury too. Rare for IND.

12 Apr 2018 16:55:27
I just can't see Minnesota trading Wiggins without a fairly big return.

12 Apr 2018 20:33:12
I can't see minny doing this, but indy would be a good destination for wiggins.

06 Apr 2018 04:23:17
Cavs offseason unrealistic

Trade Kevin love to the pacers for Corey Joseph,al Jefferson,Ike anibogou,2019 1st,2021 1st top 11 protected

06 Apr 2018 06:18:44
I'm confused I don't know whether to check the believable, or unbelievable box. The heading starts out: CAV's offseason unrealistic. Altman would be GM of the decade. Comparable to hitting the lottery twice in a month. Especially if the draftee's pan out.

06 Apr 2018 09:42:58
Basically he saying this his Cavs pipe dream. I feel bad for his son, but Lebron does not want to play for this owner beyond this yr, unfortunately for us Knicks fans he probably hates Dolan more than us Knicks fans. He could join the Lakers potentially.

06 Apr 2018 13:49:33
You’re a Knicks fan? Why are your trades so awful for the Knicks then?

06 Apr 2018 13:53:28
This Cavs/ Spurs deal has been posted before, and it has not become any more believable now than it was a couple of days ago. Again, Clarkson, bad (not horrible) contract, Zizic and Osman, good but not great prospects, and pick 7, nice, but not enough to entice the Spurs to make the deal based on the players included.

06 Apr 2018 14:33:38
J R Smith and Korver don't get you picks. You might have to give picks to get rid of them.

06 Apr 2018 16:34:58
Triangle O, that is pretty funny. I have seen this trade 3 times minimum already, maybe 4.

04 Apr 2018 12:21:27
I think East are all set now for playoffs..
Raptors, Celtics, Cavaliers, Sixers
Pacers, Wizards, Bucks, and Heat

West lockup teams: Rockets, Warriors and Blazers
Its up to these 7 teams fighting for 5 spots left:
Spurs, Thunder, Wolves, Jazz, Pelicans, Nuggets and Clippers

06 Apr 2018 00:54:19
Thanks, Captain Obvious.

30 Mar 2018 23:52:58
Hornets/ Pacers draft day deal

To CHA - Collison, Jefferson, Leaf, 2018 1st, 2020 1st (top 10 protected)

To IND - Walker, Zeller

Charlotte ditches Zeller's bloated deal while picking up two expiring contracts, a young player in Leaf, and two 1st's.

Pacers have been a pleasant surprise and now look like they should be adding instead of rebuilding. Adding another All-Star in Walker makes up for losing young assets and taking on Zeller through 2019-20.

31 Mar 2018 00:44:07
Keep Leaf, sub in J. Young. Or keep Leaf, lift protection. Looks pretty good.

07 Apr 2018 21:42:29
No way pacers give up that much for possible one year of walker and a bloated contract Zeller most likely a back up.

29 Mar 2018 19:43:29
Portland gets the Pacers 1st

Indy gets Harkless and Swanigan

29 Mar 2018 22:32:26
I like the concept a lot rkenne. The Blazers want to win, but they have painted themselves into a corner with some very expensive deals, and way too much impending tax. A bunch of cap space and a player on rookie scale for several years (or moving this package for a cheaper starter in a three teamer) might help them on the court, and on the books.

The Pacers have been my biggest surprise team this year. I think a guy like Harkless could help them next year, and we know the Pacers front office believes in winning every year.

28 Mar 2018 15:52:42
Marc Jackson plan

Hornets get Kanter Hardaway Noah
Pacers get C.Zeller
Knicks get Howard Melo Jefferson
OKC get Batum

Clippers get Lee Thomas Mudiay
Knicks get Beverly Faried Arthur
Magic get Rivers
Nuggets get Ross W.Johnson

Melo retire in class also restore super stars thought process to want to play for NY. Which is important going into next summer. Knicks will have 70 mil in cap space with 35 mil in payroll in 2019 to sign 3 superstars. Mark Jackson smarter Hornicek knows when you have 2 bigs in at same time, you don't run and gun. Draft Mykal Bridges. Beasley 1yr 10mil


28 Mar 2018 17:35:52
Sam Presti would rent a Cadillac Escalade and drive Anthony to Manhattan if the Knicks could be conned into taking him back.

28 Mar 2018 18:15:07
Super, do you really think that Presti would rather have a horribly overpriced oft injured Batum over Melo? Melo also has one less year on his contract.

28 Mar 2018 18:49:56
Mark Jackson? Why? He was fired for Kerr because the players didn't like him. The players today are less tolerant than Curry, and crew. That was a very public disclosure. The owners asked, and the players said he could go, and they wouldn't object. So why hire the guy to build a modern Knicks team.

28 Mar 2018 20:26:08
There Are/ Will be better choices for HC with the Knicks than M. Jackson. I could see a J. Van Gundy, or better yet, D Fizdale, Before having M. Jackson coaching the Knicks.

29 Mar 2018 00:39:45
The news Jackson or doc rivers, those are choices.

29 Mar 2018 00:54:01
2019 Roster

Irving/ Ntilikina
Bridges/ Hutchinson
Lebron/ Dotson
Durant/ Diop
Porzingis/ BolBol.

29 Mar 2018 01:49:24
Bring back Balky (AKA Jeff Van Gundy), I miss that guy.

Actually, with the youth movement the Knicks are trending towards, I think a Brad Stevens type (Jay Wright maybe? ) would be the best fit. Jackson would not work with an emotional guy like Zinger, and while some seem to think he's a great coaching candidate, the Warriors had to let him go and hire Kerr to reach their potential. He would be better than Hornacek, but still not the answer.

29 Mar 2018 02:41:58
If the choice was Jackson, Rivers, Fizdale, JVG, Kidd, Monty Williams, Stackhouse, Top NCAA HC wanting to jump, or another Top NBA assistant wanting to be a coach in NY. I'd pick:
1. Top NBA assistant
2. Top NCAA HC
3. Stackhouse
4. Monty Williams
5. Rivers

If Fizdale benched Lebron the way he did Gasol, he wouldn't coach again in the league. Lue would never think about it, even when Lebron yells in the huddles, essentially what Gasol did. JVG seems retired. He's not even helping his brother in DET. Kidd - MIL, Parker, stories make him sound like a jackass. No Thanks. Jackson - GS, former teammates, and employers, players stories make him sound like a totalitarian. NY needs a player counselor/ manager/ general, not drill sergeant. Same reason for no on Fizdale. Those guys, and Dolan, and Porzingis already establishing he will not be bullied by fake authority. Sounds like a bad idea. Hornacek was rumored to be chippy as a player, but I was surprised that he has had yelling matches with Porzingis, O'Quinn, Noah. A complete opposite guy needs to be there. NY needs a special guy. Rivers has proven he can coach through adversity, and roster deficiencies, and be effective. I doubt he'll be available, could be wrong. Doc is a good player/ personality manager, he doesn't get enough credit for that. In my opinion.

28 Mar 2018 11:34:15

Jazz receive C. Joseph / G. Robinson II

Pacers receive J. Crowder / R. Neto

29 Mar 2018 08:36:37
I can't see Utah doing this.
They give a lot to get Crowder.

16 Mar 2018 23:55:08
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

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.

06 Mar 2018 08:40:31
Pacers: Mahinmi+ Deng+Oubre+Ball

Was: Jefferson+ 2rnd pick Indy

LA:1rnd pick Was+ 1rnd pick Indy

C: Sabonis/Mahinmi
PF: Turner/Leaf
SF: Oubre/Bogdanovic
Sg:Oladipo/ L Stephenson
PG: Ball/D collison

28 Feb 2018 23:27:12
Pacers Offseason

-waive C Al Jefferson, PF Alex Pothyress, SG Trey McKinney-Jones
-use team options on Lance Stephenson, F/C Domantas Sabonis, PG Joseph Young
-PG Cory Joseph and PF Thaddeus Young exercise their player options

20th Pick - SG Hamidou Diallo

Trade (Indiana - Washington)

Pacers receive SF Kelly Oubre Jr, C Ian Mahinmi, 2019 top 10 protected 1st round pick

Wizards receive PF Thaddeus Young, C Ike Anigbogu, 2020 41-50 protected 2nd round pick

Free Agency:

PG: Collison, Joseph, Young
SG: Oladipo, Stephenson, Diallo
SF: Bogdanovic, Oubre Jr
PF: Turner, Sabonis, Booker
C: Jordan, Mahinmi, Leaf, Richards

01 Mar 2018 08:11:08
Why would Jordan take a lesser contract?
He's getting 24M next year.
And Sabonis can play PF, but he's a center, so i don't think indy should try to sign him.

I like taking Mahinmi's contract for getting Oubre and a draft pick.

01 Mar 2018 21:39:40
I like you're scenario but Jordan will want more money and Nick Richards will not fall to 52. Otherwise the scenario is realistic to me.

23 Feb 2018 03:21:07
Pacers Offseason:

1. Resign Glenn Robinson III

2. Draft Night Trade

(this trade will only be done by the Pacers if Collin Sexton is available at 8)

Pacers Receive: Bulls 2018 first round pick (projected 8)
-trade up to take Collin Sexton

Bulls Receive: Pacers 2018 first round pick (projected 21), Domantas Sabonis
-get a young growing center to pair up with Lauri Markanenn
-get an pick still in this year's draft that is only 13 picks lower in order to grab another young player

3. Draft Collin Sexton
-Growing jump shot
-This pick will likely make for the most athletic and exciting backcourt in the league (Sexton+Oladipo)

4. Draft Borisa Simanic in the second round (projected 51)

5. Sign Alex Len to a 1 year+1 year player option 22 million dollar contract
-Alex Len has improved a lot this season as he is contributing 8 points and 7 rebounds a game off the bench for the Suns
-They will lose Sabonis and need a back big man

6. Send Trey Mckinney Jones to the G-League, cut Edmund Sumner and Ike Anigbogu

Pacers 2018-2019 Starting Lineup
1-Collin Sexton/Darren Collison/Corey Joseph
2-Victor Oladipo/Lance Stephenson
3-Bojan Bogdanovic/Glenn Robinson III
4-Thaddeus Young/Alex Poythress/T.J. Leaf
5-Myles Turner/Alex Len/Al Jefferson

13 Feb 2018 07:52:25
76ERS - Pacers

PHI get C. Joseph / T. Young / D. Sabonis

IND get TJ. McConell / R. Covington / D. Saric

13 Feb 2018 08:54:56
nah, we rather keep Sabonis.

13 Feb 2018 13:27:36
I think Philly would pass. Covington is one of the premier 3, McConnell is good back up guardand d players in the league and Saric is a solid young player plus they're all young and under contract for a few more years and they all ready have their starting center and a good back up on Holmes. This just makes them older.

13 Feb 2018 15:43:08
Both teams pass.

05 Feb 2018 10:00:35

Pacers: I.Thomas & I.Shumpert

Cavaliers: T.Young, L.Stephenson & lottery protected 1st rd pick

05 Feb 2018 10:39:00
nope not going to happens.

05 Feb 2018 15:16:23
I wouldn't give up a first for Thomas or Shumpert
