I want to prefix this with Aaron Gordon is a restricted free agent. So his presumed value is probably more than Philly fans would expect, but less than Orlando fans would have want.

Philly gets Aaron Gordon(s and t)

Orlando gets Saric, the Lakers pick (or Sac top 5 protected reverting to the Philly 2019) and 2 2nds

16 Feb 2018 00:27:25
Not a bad trade.
Gordon is definitely a better player then Saric, but not "enough better" to also include a lottery pick this year in a very strong draft. I think the chemistry with Saric works great in philly. he's 23, on a bargain basement contract, is putting up 15 pts and 7 rebs a game, and is shooting 39% from 3pt. Again, I really like Gordon, but not the move for the sixers.

16 Feb 2018 10:54:36
Agree with Jvoug. Gordon is a good player, but no need for philly to give up Saric and a good draft pick.

16 Feb 2018 15:31:07
I actually think its a bit high of a price but it makes Philly, an up and coming team, even more dangerous. Maybe Orlando gives a bit more but overall i like this trade.

16 Feb 2018 21:24:03
If philly land this years lakers pick the kings pick goes to Boston. As part of the Fultz deal.
Gordon adding a jumpshot has elevated his game and potential so Saric and a lottery pick is fair as Gordon has star potential but even if he does reach it he will still be a quality player and complement Philly core but not sure Orlando will part with him.

Celtics offseason moves

Let go of Marcus Smart
Trade: Anthony Davis for Al Horford Clippers 2019, Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin
Extend Kyrie Irving
Sign either Nikola Mirotic or Julius Randle
Get Avery Bradley back.
Sign Elfrid Payton
If the Lakers pick falls pick either Ayton or Bamba

Lineup
Kyrie Irving/Elfrid Payton
Jayson Tatum/Avery Bradley
Gordon Hayward/Daniel Theis
Nikola Mirotic/Greg Monroe
Anthony Davis/Ayton or Bamba

15 Feb 2018 16:04:09
Unless they hit on the lottery, there is no way they get that Lakers pick. There are just to many awful teams and the Lakers have more reason to try and play well (convince free agents there is talent) than go full youth movement.

That trade isn't any where near Davis. On Paper that's less than the Cavs got for Irving and Davis is a better player and on a longer contract. Plus, NOs has no reason to move him. Horford has little value to NOs if they trade Davis. That Sacramento pick would have to be added at the very least and that's only if you can find a 3rd team to give up serious assets for Horford. I think a package would have to include Tatum/ Brown, Sac pick and a third team for Horford bringing some young assets/ expirings to NOs plus maybe another pick.

15 Feb 2018 17:05:01
Sun's have Payton's Bird rights doubt they let him walk.

15 Feb 2018 17:28:48
With what money are the Celtics able to sign Bradley, Payton and either Randle or Mirotic?

We are already over the cap now and we are trading our highest paid player and only saving about 7 million that you will probably be giving to Kyrie in his extension. Plus that trade for AD is horrible as rkenne_16 stated. Makes us Celtics fans look bad.

15 Feb 2018 19:23:30
Probably the funniest thing the Pels has ever heard. The next sound would be the receiver click ending the call. Pretty lame proposal.

15 Feb 2018 19:39:49
This must be a joke?
Or an eleven year old boy. :-)

15 Feb 2018 21:11:00
Hey how about this?

Pels are 31-26 Buicks are 32-24 Sixers are 30-25 Virtually a dead heat record wise, although Pels are in tougher West, which means they are outperforming the other two. But when it comes to lame trade proposals. We see next to none for Simmons and even less for Giannis but you guys bomb the site with lame AD trade ideas

Try distributing the wealth.

15 Feb 2018 21:13:39
Celtics don't need Davis they can trade horford for a younger player or picks and keep building a team with young stars they have two young and good players. if anything they should bring in a vet at center and maybe sign Bradley back for about 10 mil and trade off a few players to make that happen.

Irving and Tatum. Hayward and brown are there future. bring in vets to surround them. and Celtics win like warriors with speed and athleticism.

16 Feb 2018 22:01:02
“Celtics don’t need Davis” is one of the crazier statements ever on this site.

14 Feb 2018 12:55:02
Lakers offseason

- trade Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Luol Deng and 2019 1st round pick for Willie Cauley-Stein
- sign LeBron James (4-year, max contract)
- sign Paul George (3-year, max contract; can opt out in 3rd year and sign mega 5-year deal with +10-year experience)
- sign Avery Bradley (4-year, $60M)
- sign Trevor Ariza (4-year, $45M)
- sign Marco Belinelli (2-year, $8M) via room exception
- sign Devon Harris (1-year, min)
- sign Nerlens Noel (2-year, min; can revive his career and opt out in 2nd year)

Bradley - Harris
George - Hart
Ariza - Belinelli
James - Kuzma
WCS - Noel

Thoughts?

14 Feb 2018 13:26:58
If they trade Ingram and Ball, any chance they had t sign Lebron goes out the window. That team at is the 3rd best is the West and could be a bad as fifth and outside of Kuzma, there is no real upside.

14 Feb 2018 16:52:06
Ball, Ingram and a 1st rnd pick for cauly stein? Is that a joke.

14 Feb 2018 17:18:52
terrible first trade.

14 Feb 2018 19:06:23
I think this team would challenge warriors and possibly beat them and with rockets losing ariza that's a big blow. Ingram and ball don't help James sign. James wants experience to win now not three years down the line. Trading them enables the lakers to dump Deng and get a quality big to sign James and George. Lakers signing George and Bradley is y James would go there. Not to help develop ball and Ingram.

My opinion outside this trade. Trading ball Deng and Ingram for a star player allows Lakers to have cap to sign George and james could be a way to get them to sign with more experience player. Or stretch Deng have cap to sign james and George plus someone else.

I like to sign george and James. Plus sign Avery Bradley. then trade Deng and ball for DJ. Sign randle to his offer making him unrestricted next year and keeping him.

Bradley
George
Ingram
James
Jordan
Sixth man sign Evans and 7th man Randle and 8th kuzma .
Now there be no mismatch with james defeating the warriors. love is a great player he just don't fit playing against the warriors. Now it be a Lakers and Celtics in finals in 2019.
-bradley can slow down Steph.
-George can d up Thompson but can Thompson d up George no
- james can handle Durant or least equal him out
-ingram can guard green plus play the 3 on offense.
-dj well dominate any center they have. So yeah this be great for James and George to join the Lakers even with out DJ and Bradley because there other options. But with them teaming up would be deadly. Especially to the Lakers because they will still have cap and can trade for another star with picks and young players. So the warriors wouldn't make finals.

14 Feb 2018 19:50:33
I believe Ball and Ingram should be enough for WCS and capspace.

I'm not sure Bradley can be a full time pointguard, maybe he can do this, because LBJ is the main ballhandler.
Would LBJ take a discount when LA can sign CP3?

12 Feb 2018 02:28:36
Lakers dream and puts them on top.
Lakers Trade Ingram Deng and two first for Leonard.
Have 83 MIL in cap sign George James and Jordan. Use mle on Evans. Use the mini level on Noel. And Tony Allen for much he can get.
Ball/evans
Leonard/hart
George/allen
James/kuzma
Jordan/noel
Ball can use this whole summer and work on 3pt. Shooting.

12 Feb 2018 04:23:07
Not nearly enough for Leonard. If SA makes him available, they’ll get much better offers.

12 Feb 2018 07:13:59
Remember he b will be an expiring contract so teams not going to give up house for him. Like with Paul George and cp3.

12 Feb 2018 13:35:49
Still, it would wind up being more than that. Just getting rid of Deng would take something like Ingram, or both of those 1st rounders, and that's when they would have been good. If Pop sees these types of moves on the horizon, there's no way he'll give much value to those picks. You'd have to add in Kuzma or Ball, or possibly both, for it to be a consideration.

There's also a big difference between Leonard and George. As far as I can tell, Leonard hasn't said he's leaving the team, and wants to go to one specific other team. That completely tanked George's trade value.

12 Feb 2018 17:59:28
i think this trade would be most likely to happen later in summer 18 or before the 19 deadline. so if kawhi doesn't get his extension by start of next season. his trade value could be similar to what pg’s was, it kinda depends how he comes back this year and his impact in the playoffs. the later the trade happens makes things more interesting for what the lakers offer.

deng’s last contract year is 19/ 20 so the closer to that, the less “sweetening” required. also ingram would be up for extension that would kick in for 20/ 21 season i believe, so that is 20+ mil a season for multiple years, so that starts once deng expires, spurs wouldn’t ever be paying both at once. also, if lakers don’t get any stars in FA, i think ingram could breakout next year, honestly i wouldn't trade him period.

but i'd say one first lightly protected would be fair (pg trade was for two good young players, no picks and oladipo was already on his extension payscale)

12 Feb 2018 18:04:13
You never add two potential stars for expiring contract. Plus two first.

11 Feb 2018 14:06:51
Cavs off-season if Lebron leaves.

Try to get a sign and trade for Lebron. If he goes to Houston, Gordon, Anderson and 2 1sts for Lebron. Then shop Gordon for a 1st.
If he goes to the Lakers. 3 1sts and Deng for Lebron or 2 1sts, Deng and one of the Lakers lesser prospects like Hart.

Shop Love for a mid level prospect, a first and try to shave some money off the cap. Preferably, they get the deal done before the season. They need to tank to get their own pick next year.

Resign Hood.

Take on bad contracts and young assets for Hill's contract.

Try to trade Korver to save money and buy out Jr Smith.

Scour the g league and etc to fill out the roster with marginal young free agents. Also, be willing to Hood and Clarkson for the right price at the deadline.

11 Feb 2018 15:17:43
LBJ opt's in

LA: LBJ

Dallas: Deng+ JR Smith+ 1rnd pick Cle 2018+ 1rnd pick LA 2019+ 1rnd pick LA 2021

Cle: H Barnes.

11 Feb 2018 15:25:46
I'd take the picks over Barnes. The Cavs need to make sure they're bad enough to get the pick they traded to the Hawks the next 2 years. Barnes is a good player, but he doesn't look like an allstar and the Cavs won't be anywhere near a team that can get out of the 1st round. He isn't worth potentially 4 picks including the lottery pick that they would lose. The Cavs need to embrace the process if Lebron leaves. It's the only way to build a contender in a small market.

11 Feb 2018 17:48:28
No way they get that package from Houston in a sign and trade deal. Anderson 1st and 2nd rounders more likely.

11 Feb 2018 18:01:19
Tonch, they would have to give up Gordon and Anderson just to match salaries to get Lebron. If they cleared cap space any other way, they would have to trade Gordon and Anderson plus renounce the rights to Capela and Ariza. If they have serious interest in Lebron, they can't get him without a sign and trade or Lebron opting in and being traded. The Cavs would need a pretty solid package to get back since taking back more than 10 millionish would keep them in the luxury tax.

11 Feb 2018 21:51:48
the anderson+gordon deal makes sense. lakers s+t is unnecessary and cavs should have no interest in taking deng. maybe if lakers resign and offer kcp and lopez it could happen.

11 Feb 2018 23:28:19
Dona for 3 1sts, it would be worth it. It wouldn't be hard for them shed enough money to offset taking on Deng. At worse they could stretch JR and it would get them under the tax treshold.

11 Feb 2018 00:09:04
Lakers buyout deng and save money for off season



then raptors use what they have to s8gn him as a stretch forward. who's going to play small minutes but can be a big help in playoffs .

11 Feb 2018 01:55:38
The Lakers started the season trying to make the playoffs and have no reason to intentionally tank. If Deng had anything left, he would have played.

11 Feb 2018 00:03:25
here's an off season move for an all in win now and bring in James

Lakers and hornets

Lakers get walker and Howard

hornets get Lopez, Ball and Randle first round pick.


Lakers then sign James and another free agent to round out the roster.

starters

walker
Ingram
James
kuza
Howard

hornets restart with ball and Randle.

11 Feb 2018 06:44:30
not sure that lakers lineup can even crack top 3 in the west. the bench would be horrid. even one season of howard’s salary is far from worth getting kemba (also expiring)
and magic is not trading his golden goose period.

10 Feb 2018 18:07:26
End of season trade

Lakers get - Jordan (opts in)

Clippers get - Randle (s&t) and Zubac


Lakers let Lopez Thomas and Kcp walk
Resign Brewer
Draft Brandon McCoy

2019
Resign Jordan
Trade Ingram and Deng for Winslow and Richardson
Sign Kawhi and Thompson

Ball/Ennis
Thompson/Hart
Kawhi/Richardson
Kuzma/Winslow
Jordan/McCoy

10 Feb 2018 22:20:37
I like this for the Clippers, but i'm not sure Jordan would op't in.

11 Feb 2018 06:57:41
i like one year of dj in la, but i'm not resigning him. too many better options summer 19, i'd prioritize kawhi, butler, kemba (assuming they don't sign extensions before then)
also possible lebron opts-in to his PO, this f. a. 2019
and its basically impossible to to sign 3 max guys, that would require 90% available cap. lonzo would be about the other 10 and u would have to fill the other 8 roster spots via exceptions.

10 Feb 2018 12:09:09
Lakers offseason moves

On draftday.

LA: O'Quin+ Baker
NY: Deng+ 1rnd pick cleveland(draft and trade) + 1rnd pick LA 2019

Sign IT 1 year 30
Resign Cadwell-Pope 1year 20M
Resign Randle 1 year 17M

C: O'Quin/Zubac
PF: Kuzma/Randle
SF:Cadwell-Pope/Ingram
SG:IT/Hart/Baker
P:Ball/Ennis

LA 2019
Pursue K Thompson and K Leonard

10 Feb 2018 13:05:25
Why would you give up two firsts for O'Quinn and Baker?

10 Feb 2018 15:38:55
Gasupo bitter Cavs fan trying to take a shot at Lakers, bc LeBron is done with his city.

10 Feb 2018 15:39:45
Noah 2 2nd for Lebron.

10 Feb 2018 16:55:01
Why give up two firsts to unload Deng when you’re not signing significant free agents this offseason in this scenario? That doesn’t make sense.

10 Feb 2018 22:18:25
First, i'm a pacers fan, not a cavs fan.
Second, everybody Always says, it take more than one draft pick to ship Deng and his contract. Deng Has a contract for three more years, so trading him, gives them flexibility in the future.
And third, i believe LBJ go's to Houston.

10 Feb 2018 23:54:10
If the signing of Lebron/ Cousins/ George hinges on trading Deng, I would think that the trade makes sense. If it takes two firsts to unload him and there’s those signings lined up already, I would be on board if I’m the lakers. The thing that doesn’t make sense to me is that they don’t sign anyone with that money. The longer they hold onto Deng, the less it takes to offload him. Unloading him in the summer of 2019 with only one year left is pretty easy any maybe only costs second rounders.

11 Feb 2018 01:25:01
I have hard time seeing HOU dumping Anderson, and signing Paul, and figuring out how to keep Ariza, or don't, and sign James, and sign Capela. Deng only has a deal for 2 more seasons, and the rest of this one. Deng, if it's true, and he does want to play still, could agree to an extension, which would restructure his deal out to 5 seasons, and pay him less per year. Maybe the MIN, or DAL would then bite. It would be about 7 mil a season then if extension, and restructuring were to happen. Throw in Randle, or a pick, and it's palatable. Everyone has been wrong on here about pick values. Including me. Hoods value as well.

11 Feb 2018 07:12:59
@jorgawood i think they would have to find a deal where someone takes anderson and gordon (i know, tough, 34 mil in salary. lebron s+t? )
cp and lebron take paycuts (split about 50 mil), float capela cap hold (only like 6 mil) and sign him on bird after lebron

in terms of this lakers scenario, i like everything except giving IT 30 mil. he is worth about 15 (he will be lonzo’s backup) and you can't be a 5-9 sg.

10 Feb 2018 16:02:47
Gasupo is an Indy fan. He says that quite often.

10 Feb 2018 01:06:28
4 team piston, laker, OKC, Orlando

Detroit gets Thomas, L.Deng, Randal, Speights

Lakers get Biyombo, Hezonja

Thunder get Abrines, Jackson, Luer, 1st okc

Thunder get Galloway, Afflalo

10 Feb 2018 14:38:41
That looks more like a three team rebuild.

09 Feb 2018 18:40:55
2018 Offseason Plan (Lakers)

Step One
Magic Receive-Luol Deng, 2018 Cavs first round unprotected pick, 2020 Lakers first round unprotected pick

Lakers Receive-Wesley Iwundu

Step two
Lakers extend Julius Randle and sign Isaiah Thomas+Avery Bradley in order to compete

Step 3
Have assets to move at the 2019 deadline and still save a load of money to spend on 2019 free agents. Klay will be available and want a max deal which the Warriors won't be able to afford. Jimmy Butler will also be there but that's unrealistic. Lebron James will likely only sign a 1 year tenure to the Rockets or excursive his player option to return to the Cavs. All in all, the Lakers will have money to sign a superstar weather they want to in 2018 or 2019. Personally I think that the free agent class will be stronger in 2019 compared to the 2018 class.

09 Feb 2018 19:42:45
Thomas with no defense why would Lakers sign him to a contract.

09 Feb 2018 19:45:20
I think the 2018 is stronger with James George Durant cousins Paul and possibly Jordan. But 2019 is younger and better to build with Lakers. Leonard and Klay would be great and trade Ingram for a center. Plus they could keep Deng for one more year and can easily trade in 2019 with Ingram and a couple picks for whiteside.
Ball
Thompson
Leonard
Kuzma
Whiteside.

09 Feb 2018 19:47:16
Orlando takes that deal in less than a heartbeat.

11 Feb 2018 04:20:00
Dallas would take send for two first round picks.

11 Feb 2018 07:23:41
@true99 i'd keep ingram regardless of if u can get lebron, pg, kawhi, butler. the way the league is moving, wings are invaluable and u can do just fine without a traditional big. and ingram will be an all star. come 2019-20 whiteside and dj (both 30+) won't give u close to the same value as him.

09 Feb 2018 19:28:53
the magic have too many highly paid players with long contracts as it is. No way they'd accept another for what could be 2 very low firsts.

09 Feb 2018 08:16:26
Lakers Trade 2020 pick top 7 protected, cavs 2018 pick, and Deng to a rebuilding team for trade exemption and second round pick on draft night. Lakers now have 79 MIL in cap sign James George and Jordan.
Ball
George
Ingram
James
Jordan
Kuzma 6th man and still have mle.

09 Feb 2018 09:09:31
I don't think you can sign those three players with 79 M

P George is going to resign in OKC for a max contract.
And James is going to Houston.
Jordan would want more than 23 M or he stays with the clippers.

09 Feb 2018 19:48:52
28 for George with player option. 30 James with player option and Jordan for 3 years 7o MIL 21, 23.5 and 25.5.

09 Feb 2018 03:13:32
Lakers-Cap space

Teams with cap space-Thomas Deng Cavs 1st

08 Feb 2018 19:25:51
SAS-LAL-LAC-MIN

Spurs get- Isiah Thomas, Avery Bradley

Lakers get- Derrick White

Clippers get- Cole Aldrich (can be cut next season), Davis Bertans, 1st rd pcik (SAS), 2nd rd pick (MIN)

Minnesota gets- Danny Green

What do you think?

08 Feb 2018 04:25:29
Hornets: Fultz, Redick, 2018 1st unprotected (via lakers)
76'ers: Walker, Batum

08 Feb 2018 08:59:16
The pick belongs to Boston if it lands 2-6 so I doubt they can include it unless it’s a draft night trade and it belongs to the Sixers.

08 Feb 2018 14:21:51
They can definitely trade that pick. If it’s not the lakers pick, then it’s the Kings pick, so either way it turns into something good.

08 Feb 2018 14:52:27
I like this
Philly becomes a contender and Charlotte can start a rebuilt.

07 Feb 2018 19:07:46
WAS-LAC-DAL trade

Wahington gets- Deandre Jordan

Los Angeles gets- Nerlens Noel, Jason Smith, 1st rd pick (WAS)

Dallas gets- Marcin Gortat, Sam Dekker, Sheldon Mac, 2nd rd pick (LAC)

What's your thoughts?

07 Feb 2018 21:01:19
Dallas gives up nothing?

07 Feb 2018 22:01:46
Skills Dallas gets almost nothing they value. In fact, I think they turn it down. Why take on Gortats contract for Dekker and a 2nd?

08 Feb 2018 02:56:21
Gortrat is averaging close to 10pts 9rbs. He's making less then 8 million. You sit here and put Tristan Thompson out there who worse and making twice as much, and expect a stud in return, yet yur going to act like gortat isn't worth anything lol. Just go away.

08 Feb 2018 15:35:53
Dallas is one of the worst teams in the league and in the middle of a rebuild. Gortat is 34 and fading. He has 0 value to a rebuilding team. You do realize this isn't 2k and the trajectory of teams actually matters right?

07 Feb 2018 07:52:32
Philly gets Nance jr., Deng and Clarkson plus two first round picks top 5 protected.there taking Deng but getting Clarkson and Nance plus two picks they can then stretch Deng after season and make play off push.

Lakers gets booker and reddick.Lakers now have about 80mil in cap after season. James and George 29 each first year with player option. Then sign Jordan 22 MIL first year. Can use mle on Williams.
Ball/hart
George/Williams
Ingram/james/george
James/kuzma
Jordan/zubac

07 Feb 2018 08:01:08
Philly won't do that. The picks would be in 2020 and 2023 (if 2020 pick is unprotected in 2021). That's Not much value. Additionally they don't need Nance. Also Clarkson hasn't much value because of his contract and the because Fultz and McConnell can fill the role Clarkson would have. Philly can get better value in this offseason.

07 Feb 2018 08:16:32
Clarkson can start next to fultz and he is better then both them. or would be valuable off bench. He has two years 25 MIL left that's not bad at all. They can use nance especially if they lose Johnson and booker.

08 Feb 2018 13:46:15
Sixers definitely pass on that.

06 Feb 2018 01:10:59
Lakers-Knicks-Cavaliers

Lakers get Willie Hernangomez, Channing Frye (exp)
> they could flip Lopez elsewhere ir buy him out. I know Willie can ball and he's on a cheap contract, he will be a nice building piece for Lakers

Knicks get Jordan Clarkson, Iman Shumpert, Cedi Osman & CLE 1st rd pick
> Knicks get 2 young guards and a pick as a return for their tradeable players

Cavaliers get Courtney Lee & Kyle Oquinn
> adds 2 much needed defensive players

07 Feb 2018 00:34:11
With Lee the CAVS are going to have to buy walkers for the whole team.

07 Feb 2018 01:40:27
Jorgawood is going to need buy passerfier for not knowing what their talking about. 32 yrs old is not old.

07 Feb 2018 04:28:08
Pacifier?

06 Feb 2018 23:15:26
3 team trade

Suns get - Noel (s&t) and Clarkson

- Gets a defensive anchor and a good combo guard

Mavs get - Chandler Randle and Lakers 2nd

- Mavs doesn't think Noel is a max player even if they don't think randle is they get an extra pick

Lakers get - Chriss

- Not receiving a ton but they're trying to clear a lot of cap and they can also package Chriss if needed to trade

Clarkson/Booker/Jackson/Warren/Noel
-Draft Colin Sexton or Porter Jr

Smith/Matthews/Barnes/Randle/Dirk
-Draft Ayton or Bamba

Ball/KCP/Ingram/Kuzma/Lopez

05 Feb 2018 19:19:24
CLE-LAC-MIL-MIN trade

Cleveland gets- Deandre Jordan, Mathew Delladova, Lou Williams

Los Angeles gets- John Henson, Channing Frye, Cole Aldrich, Cedi Osman, Ante Zizic, Rashad Vaugn, Shabazz Muhammad, 1st rd pick (BKN)

Milwaukee gets- Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert

Minnesota gets- JR Smith, 1st rd pick ( worse of LAC or DET pick)

WHY I THINK EACH TEAM DOES THIS...

CLE- They want Deandre Jordan and Lou Williams. Delly is someone Lebron likes and can help them in defense.

LAC- They get assets that they can evaluate and cut if they don't like them. They also don't have to take back any horrendous contracts.

MIL- They get a big man who is a tenacious rebounder and a wing defender, without having to give up much.

MIN- High Risk trade that could pay off, JR offers the CHANCE of added shooting. They get a draft pick for taking on the player with the worst contract/ lowest upside.

What do you think? Thanks!

05 Feb 2018 19:33:46
HA HA HA! Milwaukee says NO! Thompson is worse than Henson, Shumpert is worse than Dellavedova, Vaughn will be a toss in on any trade. Why is it ALL Cav fans try and screw all other teams? Then give back "Crap" in return? How about Milwaukee trades 3rd string and seldom used SG R. Vaughn for Thomas, Love and L. James, Plus the Cav's 1st rd. picks for the next 20 years? Makes just about as much sense!

Way overselling Thompson, and Shumpert. Negative value.

jorgawood--youre probably right, I just feel like Thompson would be a good fit with the Bucks he's a high energy player, Shumpert was just a toss in bc his contract ends after next year

The Dark Side-- I don't even like the cavs. I'm a lifelong Wolves fan, just sharing an interesting trade that I personally thought was fair.

@ maplejordan. As a Wolves fan you would have know better. How about, Thompson and Shumpert for KAT, and Wiggins? Look at Thompsons stats. plus the Fact that he's dragging along some extra luggage (Kardashagin) Thompson might be "high energy" but, so is Dellavedova, and at times Henson can be, Both are overpaid, Like Thompson and Shumpert! Bucks need a Defensive Rim Protector. Someone who weighs more than 200 lbs. Henson and Maker are both just tall (6'11" and 7'1") PF's playing Center, and nothing more. I would rather have Jordan, Whiteside, Or at the very least McGee (Now that's "High Energy! ") or Bogut playing Center.

Terrible. Tristan Thompson is horrible. Way over paid like his gfs family. They do nothing and get money. Only value Thompson has is to the CBA where he might be an average player. I’ll take Raef Lafrentz if he comes out of retirement over Thompson.
