Extending GSW dynasty.
Trade deadline deal:

Kings receive: Gallinari, Cook, Bell, '19 1st
Send: Shumpert, Hield
Get some good prospects, an additional pick, and a needed go to scorer to reduce the pressure on theit young core.

Hornets send: MKG, '21 2nd
Receive: Livingston
Cut down on salary (now & future), and finally get their back up PG.

Clippers send: Gallinari
Receive: Shumpert (waive), MKG, '21 2nd
open up more cap space for the off season and get a pick.

GSW send: Livingston, Cook, Bell, '19 1st
Receive: Hield
They won't be able to afford resigning Cook and Bell with their current core getting more and more expensive. This gives them a solid back up G off the bench and saves them a lot of tax.

15 Aug 2018 03:12:33
with Cook and Livingston gone. Who is Backup point guard?

13 Aug 2018 02:56:07
POR/LAC

POR get Tobias Harris (exp) & Pat Beverley (exp)

LAC get Mo Harkless, Anfernee Simons, Caleb Swanigan, 1st round pick (no protection) + 2nd round pick

- LAC do this if they think they'll be out of Leonard's sweepstakes

POR get more competitive for this season by getting a forward who is a clear upgrade and a defensive guard which they lack

POR line up

Pg Lillard/Beverley/Baldwin
Sg McCollum/Curry/Stauskas
Sf Harris/Turner
Pf Aminu/Collins
Ce Nurkic/Leonard

13 Aug 2018 05:40:10
Blazers shouldn't do this. It trades assets in the future for 2 expiring contracts. Harris and Beverly aren't going to change the blazers fortunes in the playoffs if they make it and none of the guys the blazers are trading are hurting their cap issues. Leonard and turner are the ones fouling up the payroll in Portland.

09 Aug 2018 02:20:22
Mid-season deal if LAC are out of playoffs

LAC/LAL

LAC get 2020 1st round pick, Luol Deng & Josh Hart

LAL get Tobias Harris (exp)

LAL dump Deng in the process while gaining a player who can give them more line up versatility while the LAC get assets and take Deng's salary

LAL

Pg Rondo/Ball
Sg Ingram/KCP
Sf James/Stephenson
Pf Harris/Kuzma/Beasley
Ce McGee/Zubac/Wagner

09 Aug 2018 09:09:04
Only if the clippers think they can't sign Leonard.

10 Aug 2018 01:16:02
Why would clippers take on money?

07 Aug 2018 01:49:37
Four team trade:

Clippers send: Gallinari, Teodosic, Boban, '20 2nd
Receive: Vucevic, Shumpert
Get a scoring starting C and clear cap space for next summer.

Kings send: Shumpert, '21 2nd
Receive: Gallinari
Go to scorer on the wing and will ease the pressure on their younger players while not taking much of their minutes.

Pels send: Ajinca, '20 2nd
Receive: Boban
Get a better back up C to protect against injuries

Magic send: Vucevic
Receive: Teodosic, Ajinca (Waive), 2x '20 2nds, '21 2nd
Get a pass first point who can start, clear front court minutes for their young core and get 3 picks for a player who will leave for nothing.

07 Aug 2018 21:33:18
Good deal for all 4 teams. Magic may want a 1st rounder instead of all of those 2nd round picks. I really like Vucevic to clippers and Gallinari to Kings. Pels and Magic are secondary to make the trade work.

Nice trade.

08 Aug 2018 14:27:37
Nice trade wiz.

08 Aug 2018 19:38:17
Not sure why Clips would trade Boban for Ajinca. Both are expiring.

30 Jul 2018 19:01:50
Could have let teodosic walk already why waive him now? I'd fire my gm for a mistake like that.

30 Jul 2018 22:48:54
Harris is not coming money is not an issue.

31 Jul 2018 01:54:30
Apparently Harris turned down a similar dollar value contract already, which while surprising, makes me wonder if it’s that he does not want to be a Clip next year.

Btec is right on Teodosic, why guarantee him and then cut him.

If DMC comes back healthy and plays great for GSW, you may not be far off on his deal’s value, though 3 years may be a year too many.

Personally, I think they’ll chase Claw or Klay before considering DMC.

23 Jul 2018 09:39:08
If Butler gets traded before the deadline, do you think Minnesota blows it up once again? I think they will.

Celtics get Towns
Wolves get Brown, Rozier. Clippers pick and Grizzlies pick.

23 Jul 2018 10:14:23
As much as I'd love that, I think Towns is the one you rebuild around.

23 Jul 2018 14:05:28
I don't think that's nearly enough. Brown is a special guy, I think, but Towns is a special big man, which is something else entirely, and he's also young. There aren't many players I would move Brown for, and I've said on here many times I wouldn't move him for Leonard, but Towns (and also Davis) is someone I would. Davis is trickier than Towns because of the current contracts, and the players that would need to be moved. A Brown/ Rozier package would work as a start to bring in Towns, while one of the other big guns would have to be sent to New Orleans.

23 Jul 2018 18:16:58
Too early to call with wolves. Towns was atrocious in the playoffs. A big man who can't post up? Kind of the easiest thing to do as center. If butler leaves towns and Wiggins have a long way to go in their development. Wolves will be lottery for a couple seasons.

23 Jul 2018 22:39:48
You have to add Tatum to any deal involving towns/ Davis they’re to good to young and finding bigs that good is much harder then finding a pretty good sg/ sf I like brown a lot but he is nothing great y’all act like he’s a superstar which he’s not so honestly I doubt either end up in Boston ever.

23 Jul 2018 08:20:39
The Clippers get Mcollum, Turner, Aminu(expiring), simons, the Blazers 19 1st, and 21 1st plus save 5 million

The Blazers get Gallinari, Harris, Williams, and Bradley

23 Jul 2018 09:46:51
Why would the Clippers do this?

The Value is good, but this wouldn't make them a playoff team and this doesn't give them capspace to sign a big free agent.

23 Jul 2018 15:20:59
I feel like the Clippers would do this. There aren't any big cap changes, but they are bringing back the best player in the deal, while getting out of Gallinari's contract. They bring in another inflated contract with Turner, but at least he's able to see the floor, and is very productive if used correctly as he showed in Boston.

On the Portland side, Bradley would fill in nicely next to Lillard, and Harris helps to fill the gap they have at the small forward position. If Gallo ever stays healthy, they would actually have an even starting 5 for the first time in a long while.

Does it put either of these teams over the top? Probably not. But it does put each of them in a better position than they're currently in.

23 Jul 2018 17:11:33
The Clippers get the better part in this deal, but i would for the lottery next year.

23 Jul 2018 18:18:31
Just trade lillard. Dumping turner is great but losing picks, Simons, Aminu, McCollum is a lot of cheddar.

22 Jul 2018 06:17:03
This is a bit ridiculous, but I wanted to see if Boston fans would think it was worth it

The Celtics get Davis and Harkless

The Trailblazers get Hayward

The Pelicans get Turner, Portlands 2019, 21, and 23 1st, the 2019 Clippers, Kings and Memphis 1sts, the Celtics 20, 22, 24 and 26 1sts (26 lottery protected.

22 Jul 2018 06:26:53
An all star and 7 firsts? That’s just too much cost from Boston.

No one is worth 10 firsts, too much for anyone.

22 Jul 2018 14:57:19
I'm not saying it's fair value for Boston, but at this point, it would take a ridiculous offer to get Davis. Also, that team would be a monster. They can match up with any style. They would be amazing defensively. They'd also be elite on offense and enable to throw out lineups that no one else couldn't contend with.

22 Jul 2018 15:49:03
That’s a lot of 1sts for Portland to give up, and a poop tonne for Boston. That’s Nets’esq, and I don’t see a team making that mistake again, even though Davis is a bunch of times better than what the Nets acquired in that deal with the C’s.

22 Jul 2018 16:23:22
Price is steep for sure, but if you're telling me that I can get AD for 1 player off of my roster (Hayward) and a bunch of picks, I think Ainge would drive Hayward to New Orleans.
I also think that the Pels, say no, very quickly.

22 Jul 2018 16:25:49
Sorry, I meant Ainge would drive Hayward to Portland.

I also think Portland says no, that's way too much to give for Hayward.

22 Jul 2018 18:22:36
Ainge would not drive GH to Portland simply because this traded wouldn't happen.

C's have one spot open and they might not even fill that slot till TD. But if they do it has to be for the likes of Kyle Korver. They'll need someone to come of the bench and knock down 3's at a 40%+ clip to get 6-12 pts quickly.

22 Jul 2018 20:30:39
Of course it wouldn't happen. Portland and New Orleans would say no. I still think Ainge would.

22 Jul 2018 21:00:58
The Clippers pick is propably going to convey in 2 second round picks.

Boston could do this without trading the 2024 pick and a lottery protection on the 2026 pick.

23 Jul 2018 23:12:16
@Joe Realize that you're dealing with Celtics fans. They think every Super Star would be privileged to play for them and every other team should willingly give up their once in a generation Player

They can keep their picks and we will keep AD in NOLA.

19 Jul 2018 05:45:52

Nets did all of their finagling to open up Max money next year. Taking on Nillo makes no sense.

18 Jul 2018 20:12:22

Can't include anything else in a s&t.

18 Jul 2018 21:30:49
Kahwi to toronto.

18 Jul 2018 21:40:43
Kawhi is a Raptor.

18 Jul 2018 22:40:19
Unbelievable, since Leonard has been traded to the Raptors.

19 Jul 2018 16:25:05
Before the actual Toronto trade, I would have thought about this. I've been steadfast in not wanting to move Brown for Leonard as I think Brown will be Leonard, but if he's the only major player moving and they're getting back Leonard AND Butler I'm in. I think it would have been an easier bet to bring one of them back if all of them are there already. although you're looking at some CRAZY contracts at the end of the season. But Irving/ Butler/ Leonard/ Tatum/ Horford with Hayward coming off the bench? That's a little nuts.

20 Jul 2018 13:43:27
Dude. Celtics fans are insane. Jaylen Brown. Rozier. And some crap picks will never get you that. NEVER.

22 Jul 2018 17:36:37
The Cavs don't need to rebuild? Idk why you all keep insinuating this. they actually have a good team, they’re still going to make some moves and will be make playoffs.

17 Jul 2018 17:29:50
Please read all trades before replying even if u don't read the reasoning I know it is a lot. But please tell me what u think. A couple of moves for thunder I highly doubt this happens, but you never know and I believe these trades r fair just wouldn't happen
If Melo will play for Miami which I think he should he can b a top option and get in better shape and get paid better next off season.

Thunder get Whiteside
Miami get Melo

Miami doesn't want Whiteside they want Melo so just a simple 2 player swap. Thunder can add a 2nd if need be but nobody want Whiteside so I don't see them getting a better offer.

I am a huge fan of Adams he is still young and still has more potential but with Whiteside the thunder would not need him therefore they trade him.
I will put a couple possible Adams trades y'all can tell me which one is most realistic if any are.
Next trade


Thunder get Leonard and Mills

Spurs get Adams, Ferguson, Abrines, an unprotected 1st and 2 2nd round picks


Unless Spurs want to have 20 mil just sitting on the bench all year they will have to trade Leonard and with Lakers and 76ers not trying anymore I don't see them getting a better offer. They get an already good young player with more potential in Adams who is a great screen setter and can defend the perimeter, a really young player in Ferguson with good two way potential. And someone who can knock down the three. Along with a total of 3 picks.
If this one happened they resign Brewer vet min and Huestis min, sign Diallo and Hervey, stretch Singler. Thunder would not be saving much they would still b a 300 mil team but they would b better contenders
thunders lineup

Westbrook/ Mills/ Felton
George/ Brewer/ Diallo
Leonard/ Roberson/ Huestis
Grant/ Patterson/ Hervey
Whiteside/ Noel/ Johnson
At trade deadline trade Felton and bring up Hall

If they can't get Leonard then try this.

Wizards get Adams, Abrines, a 1st round pick, and 1 or 2 2nds if need be.
Thunder get Beal

Wizards need to change something cause they never go far in the playoffs with what they have. This changes it up but they remain good. And in the East I say top 4 seed. Thunder get a good SG
Stretch Singler Sign Brewer vet min contract, sign the three rookies. Once again still expensive team but better contenders.
Thunder line up

Westbrook/ Felton/ Hall
Beal/ Brewer/ Diallo
George/ Roberson/ Ferguson
Grant/ Patterson/ Hervey
Whiteside/ Noel/ Johnson

Final trade possibility this would be last option

Clippers get Adams
Thunder get Harris and Beverly both exp contract

Sign Hervey and Brewer
Thunder lineup
Westbrook/ Beverly/ Felton
George/ Abrines/ Ferguson
Harris/ Roberson/ Brewer
Grant/ Patterson/ Hervey
Whiteside/ Noel/ Johnson
Trade Felton at deadline.

17 Jul 2018 17:55:23
I skimmed your reasoning, but outside of the Whiteside trade, these are all horribly 1 sided in favor of OKC. They don't have a 1st for a few years and Adams has little value because of his contract. He's a good player, but you can get most of what he gives you for a quarter of the price.

17 Jul 2018 18:12:40
Adams isn't bad, but no way they can get Leonard or Beal for Him

And why would the Clippers want Adams?

17 Jul 2018 18:45:06
I figured the other two were not going to work but clippers would do it cause Harris and Beverly r both expiring so they get a good player in return. And Adams is under rated just cause his stat sheet doesn't pop out at you. He is if not the best one of the best offensive rebounders stats proove that. He is one of the best big men at pick and roll and setting screens in general. He can guard the perimeter well for a big man most big men can't guard the perimeter well. And he is a guy that does a lot of dirty work and puts forth the extra effort a lot of players dont. His only flaw is he can't shoot mid range and 3 but to a team that loves defense like Spurs he is a great fit. And he is only 24 he can still develop more on offense.

17 Jul 2018 18:48:54
I also forgot to say if u put the spurs and wizards Adams trades in the ESPN trade checker. It says it will actually give the spurs and wizards more wins. I know that is not real life but it still shows the trades aren't super one sided.

17 Jul 2018 21:32:14
Adams is good. It's just that you can go out and get bigs that aren't significantly worse for cheap. Why trade a star for Adams if I can get Dedmond or someone for a quarter of the cost without giving anything up. Adams does a lot of things well, but you can't build your defense around him and you can't have him carry your offense for stretches.

18 Jul 2018 00:50:59
I get where your coming from his contract, but Adams is 24 not yet in his prime and under contract for 3 more years his contract could easily turn into a good contract if he gets a good offensive game he would easily b top 5 center and he still has time to develop into the offensive player. He showed a lil glimpse of what he could turn into on a night to night basis this year. 3 games in a row
he got 20 pts 9/ 10 shooting vs jazz
he got 19 pts 8/ 13 shooting vs spurs and 27 on 11/ 11 shooting vs T-wolves
So in 3 games got 66 pts on 28/ 34 shooting. For the season he averaged 13.9 pots and shot .629 fg percentage averaging 9.4 shots a game. Basically my point is he is young already a good player with potential to become great player. All he needs is more consistent offense and a lil better range which will come with time. I am willing to bet Adams makes the all Star team at least once in his career. He is underated.

12 Jul 2018 14:41:33

12 Jul 2018 15:53:40
I love this for the Clippers and the Knicks

Not sure about OKC, it a good move if Gallinari can stay healty, but this cost them a lot.

12 Jul 2018 16:40:42
I agree with you said about gallinari but land him and hardaway at cost melo and Abrines, it huge winner at very little risk for okc. With good insurance behind gallo, patterson and grant are solid fill in.

12 Jul 2018 19:09:11
Shizzee, but would they value either of those guys at the price point they would have to pay? Not only do they have to pay their bloated contract, but they have to pay a ton of luxury tax as well. It doesn't seem worth it.

12 Jul 2018 23:14:01
Nugs say heck yes.

12 Jul 2018 23:22:33
Thunder give up and expiring and young players for two bad contracts.

13 Jul 2018 05:26:59
Hardaway 26 3 yrs left and Gallinari 29 2 yrs left. 2 players in there prime stretch the offense with 3 other starting players in their prime. Melo is not get u better talent without picks. Hardaway and Gallinari is best you can get. Best shooters available beside R. Anderson and Fournier. Gallo and timmy are better. OKC in luxury regardless.

13 Jul 2018 12:34:23
Gallo and THJ are negative value. They're owed nearly 100M. Gallo can't stay on the court and THJ just isn't that good. I'd buy Melo out before doing this.

10 Jul 2018 22:11:35
Boston: J Butler+ Drummond+ I Smith

Wolves: G Hayward+ J Brown

Detroit: A Wiggins+Morris+ Rozier+ 1rnd pick Clippers


Boston

C: Drummond
PF: Horford
SF:Tatum
SG:J Butler
PG: Irving

11 Jul 2018 01:03:45
Seems fair to me but wolves might be hesitant right away because of haywards injury.

11 Jul 2018 01:48:18
Brown, Rozier, Heyward and a 1st is a pretty steep price for the Celtics.

11 Jul 2018 02:46:53
With irving most likely leaving next summer don't think they would trade rozier for anyone.

11 Jul 2018 04:54:10
If Detroit trades Drummond they want Brown and Rozier back.

11 Jul 2018 04:59:39
Not sure if Detroit does this, cause wiggins as of now is just an inefficient ball dominant player whos bad at defense and shows a poor work ethic, and a huge contract.

11 Jul 2018 05:13:20
Irving is leaving next summer? There has been no report or evidence saying Irving has declared he is leaving. If Boston does have half as good next season he's going nowhere.

11 Jul 2018 06:21:42
If Boston only has half as good next season as last year then Kyrie is definitely leaving. If you mean half as good better than last year then they just set an NBA record. In that case Kyrie is going nowhere


But this trade would get them to the finals for sure and would probably win. They would definitely pay a Luxury tax, but have banner #18.

11 Jul 2018 06:51:02
You must hate the celtics. Dealing 3 major contributors for 2. I meant what I said. Point was Irving is not leaving and has given no indication of leaving. Same media hype as lbj attracts big FA's. Just media hype no proof or practice to speak of.

11 Jul 2018 13:18:44
Blec, Chris Mannix reports that the C’s are scared that Irving will leave next year, all indications are he was interested in the Knicks and will give them every chance to convince him it’s a good spot to end up. Didn’t Kyrie also say when asked this offseason about his future in Boston that while he’s happy there, who know where he’ll be next year? Read his interview with Sopan Deb, doesn’t sound convincing that he’s staying long term.

11 Jul 2018 14:03:01
I don't hate the Celtics. It's all about winning. We don't know how Haywards going to be for one, although I think he'll be OK but there is that "what if".


Irving isn't tipping his hand, but "what if" he does want to play with Porzingis as he stated and also with Butler? That's a whole different ball game now. Ainge will trade whomever to get #18, it's a business right? He traded Pierce and KG.


With Butler on board chances would seem more likely than not that Kyrie and Butler would resign. After all DA has professed his crush for Butler in the past.

Don't get me wrong, the team they have now are very good without Hayward, and Irving for that matter. But IMO the proposed trade is better, on paper and on the floor and increase their chances more of winning. They are only giving away one 1st rd. pick so if they win it all next year DA could let KI and JB walk and still be in a position to be there again the next year.

11 Jul 2018 14:06:23
Forgot to mention, I'm from Boston, I love all my Boston teams!

11 Jul 2018 17:28:10
Irving is 25, I don't take one Chris mannix story seriously I heard what Irving said and how it was blown way out of proportion considering his extension now would be less than if he waits. Trading a 1st option like Irving is not going to make you defeat gsw. Irving for Leonard or butler is a bad idea. PG's like Irving come around once in a lifetime. Celtics stole Irving they should be thrilled with him. Irving is from jersey, Dolan is a retard and the Knicks suck.

11 Jul 2018 17:44:15
Oh and I almost forgot, the earth is flat. Irving obviously likes messing around with the media. Hard to take anything that guy takes seriously. Same with lillards happy camper post. People interpreted it as lillard wanted out. I interpreted it as lillard would be happy with blazers or being traded. Irving basically said I better get paid or yeah I will play somewhere else. That's how I took it.

11 Jul 2018 21:20:32
Blec, read the Sopan Deb interview. I never said Kyrie was leaving, but if you think that Irving is an almost guarantee to resign, that would be foolish.

11 Jul 2018 22:01:06
@triangle I read it and I have to ask what about that suggests Irving is going to the Knicks or is thinking about leaving? All it says is he will answer that later more clearly when the time comes. It even has in bold lettering IRVING WON'T BUDGE ON HIS FUTURE WITH THE CELTICS. Sounds like a smart move for a guy going into a contract year and looking at negotiations in a year. I love the celtics its the only place I wanna be right now would be a terrible negotiating tactic. Even if it were true.

12 Jul 2018 13:18:57
Didn’t say he was going to the Knicks, only that he was interested in them at the time of the trade to Boston.

08 Jul 2018 01:35:48
So the market for Kawhi Leonard seems to be drying up. The Clippers have s*** for assets according to other GM's. Kawhi does not want to play second fiddle to LeBron and the Lakers. Other teams do not want to give much for Kawhi because he will not resign. The Sixers look like an option. One GM said the Sixers are the only team in the East kahwi will resign with.

Sixers get: Leonard

Spurs get: Covington, Chandler, TLC, Sixers 2019 unprotected #1, Miami 2021 unprotected #1, rights to Jonah Bolden(overseas stash).

C: Embiid, Johnson, Holmes
Pf:Saric, Bjelica
SF:Leonard, Anderson, Z.Smith
Sg:Redick, Fultz, Korkmaz
Pg:Simmons, McConnell, Shamet

Still will never beat the Celtics bad move for Leonard. They will need a true power forward with great defense and better defender in reddick as your starting shooting guard. Celtics are only contenders in East. See what they the warriorswarrior's just did to Cavs and struggled against Houston. West is just to deep Leonard will just make 76ers ppretender.

08 Jul 2018 05:21:08
From what I've read, he's basically said he only wants to go to the Lakers now that Lebron is there. I'm not saying the 76ers shouldn't do it for the right price, but playing 2nd fiddle to Lebron doesn't seem like a problem for him.

ll, if Fultz can come back and be a solid 2 way player and they get Kawhi, the 76ers are absolutely a threat to win the East.

08 Jul 2018 14:59:19
Philly would be with Boston as faves in the East, but everything says he doesn’t want to play second fiddle to Bron.

I think Philly picked up Chandler as cover should they give up Covington and/ or Saric in a Leonard deal. I think the Spurs can get both if they also take Bayless’ contract. If not, Covington, Holmes and two firsts is about all I would give up for him.

08 Jul 2018 19:57:51
With Irving and heyward back the east is all Boston. Just like it was the Cavs it's all Boston, even with Leonard on 76ers for saric and Covington. There still no threat to boston. that's why it's not a good move for Leonard to compete. They need a couple more pieces Leonard Simmons and embiid not cutting it with fultz who did show potential and reddick can get hot but no defense. Plus No jump shot Simmons and who going to guard kyrie No match for boston. I would rather play second fiddle to a player then playing second fiddle to a team. Playing second fiddle to LeBron is Leonard way to win.

Trade will be done by August 7th

SAS receive 2022 and 2024-1st round picks via LAC, 2022-1st round pick via OKC, 2019 and 2020-2nd round picks via LAC and Tobias Harris

LAC receive OKC 2019-2nd round pick, Kyle Singler, Dakari Johnson and Kawhi Leonard

OKC receive Lou Williams.

06 Jul 2018 23:25:29
I don't see the point of it for the Clippers. Kawhi most likely walks rather than staying with a pretty bad supporting cast.

07 Jul 2018 15:22:02
Thats a great return for a one year rental. Harris is a solid Player, the picks should be mid 1st round. I also don't see the benefit for the Clips based on their current situation.

05 Jul 2018 16:51:37
Clippers trade Gallinari, Beverly, Jerome Robinson, Harrell (Sign and trade 5mill/ year), 2021 1st round pick, rights to swap 2nd round picks for 2 years

Spurs trade Kawhi and Mills.

05 Jul 2018 18:12:37
Cant sign and trade with others included.

05 Jul 2018 19:00:18
@shizzee not true. See the Gallinari sign and trade last year that was a 3 team deal and included jamal crawford and diamond stone.

05 Jul 2018 19:49:03
Gallinari didn't go to clips alongside another player from the nuggets. That's the s&t rule about multiple players. Same team.

04 Jul 2018 19:38:22
Minny: Harris+ Gilgeous Alexander

Spurs: Gallinari+ J Robinson+ 1rnd pick Clippers 2021 and 2023

Clippers: J Butler+ K Leonard

04 Jul 2018 21:04:34
Lol lol clippers fan.

05 Jul 2018 05:11:17
clips don't have enough to get kawhi by himself, let alone butler in the same deal.

05 Jul 2018 17:20:28
Clippers can just sign both outright next offseason and keep all of their assets.

05 Jul 2018 21:59:36
I don’t like the Clips but why does everyone hate this trade what’s wrong with it?

04 Jul 2018 18:25:02
Sixers off-season moves.

1. Sign Montrezl Harrell as back-up center. Looks like clippers are going hard after oquin, and already have Gortat and marivojic as centers. Don't think they will carry 4 centers.

2. Trade Chandler, Covington, Miami's unprotected 2021 #1, sixers unprotected 2019 #1 to Spurs for Kahwi Leonard.

3. Buy-out Bayless and his $8.6 million.

C: Embiid, Harrell, Holmes
Pf:Saric, Bolden
SF:Leonard, Anderson, Korkmaz.
Sg:Redick, Fultz, Z.Smith
Pg: Simmons, McConnell, Shamet

04 Jul 2018 20:22:18
Could sign Alex Len instead of Harrell as well. Either would be a viable back up for Embiid. Lenigjt be available for the vet minimum on a one year deal.

04 Jul 2018 20:42:38
or just resign Amir "Mr. Hustle" Johnson. Scratch the Harrell and Len ideas.

04 Jul 2018 21:03:53
If the Spurs are going to play hardball I think you have to give Fultz instead of Covington.

03 Jul 2018 17:38:17
Spurs finish offseason

SAS/ LAC

To LAC - Leonard

To SAS - Harris, Gilgeous-Alexander

Kawhi lands in LA, not to the team he really wants, but the Clips would have a better chance of resigning him than almost anyone else. Him, Bradley, Harrell and Beverley are a nightmare on D for opponents.

Clips don’t give up too much, but Spurs get a very good player in Harris and a prospect with upside in SGA.

Use part of mid-level to sign Mbah a Moute, and resign Bertrand, Anderson. Let Forbes, Parker, Joffrey walk.

2018-19 Spurs

PG - Murray, Mills, SGA
SG - Green, Manu, Walker
SF - Harris, Anderson, Belinelli
PF - Gay, Mbah a Moute, Bertans
C - LMA, Gasol

Spurs stay competitive this year, let Walker and SGA develop slowly and take bigger roles in ‘19-20. This team wins 50-52 games, and has space next year when Green, Manu, and Gay come off the books. Gasol also becomes an expiring deal who may have some trade value. Murray, SGA, Walker, Harris, Anderson and LMA lead the team into their next era.

03 Jul 2018 20:45:13
Everyone go please watch what cris carter said on ESPN today. He spoke directly to kawhi. Kawhi never said specifically the lakers. He said LA. The Clippers have a great shot at him. This offer however is not enough.

Isn't S&T off the table once Jordan opted out?

30 Jun 2018 04:48:07
That is a terrible trade for Dallas. Kemba is a very good point guard but he's an expiring contract and is 27. DSJ iso like 20 and has high upside. While yes it would be nice to unload the Wes Matthews contract. I'd rather have his contract than Batum's bloated contract. Just doesn't make sense for Dallas.
