The Lakers get Monroe(exp), Parker(exp), Anderson(exp) and a SA 2020 1st top 10 protected

The Spurs get Randle, Clarkson, Deng, and Parker

The Bucks get Aldridge and the Spurs 18 first

The Lakers get all the capspace they need and add a pick which could help with building depth on a team that if they sign multiple super stars in the offseason will be in desperate need of bench production.

The Spurs get an influx of young talent. The Spurs have been great at keeping players healthy, which seems like Parkers biggest weakness. If he can return near full strength under Pop's coaching he could become an allstar. Clarkson could give them a combo guard and be the heir to Manu's 6th man position. I think Pop could make Randle's post passing a real weapon. This gives them more scoring, stops their slight downward trend, and I think Pop would love the challenge of making NBA stars out of some talented young guys.

The Bucks drop a few million which has been rumored to be a goal. They cash in on Parker rather than risking it, end up with a borderline all star than can help this young team take the next step and they get a first which could be used later to add to their roster.

19 Sep 2017 17:30:03
The Lakers get Monroe, Frye, Jefferson, Felder, Tavares, and a 2nd from the Bucks and Cavs

The Bucks get Deng, Randle, Shumpert, and Clarkson

The Cavs get Delly and Henson

The Lakers get the expiring contracts they need to open even more space for them to put together a super team next year. They don't give up any picks, which will be important to fill out their roster in the future, they keep the two young players that they want to build around, Randle won't be resigned anyway if they end up paying 2 or 3 superstars in the off season, and Clarkson would also have to be dealt if they want to get 3 stars.

The Bucks get 2 solid young players that can help them score and 2 veterans that can shoot a little and defense without giving up any of their long term pieces.

The Cavs turn some of their expiring contracts into a player in Delly who could be really useful especially before IT is healthy and Henson who can block shots. This provides depth without giving up anything of long term value, gets them below 15 on the roster, and saves them a few million dollars this year.

19 Sep 2017 18:12:21
Bucks say NO!

20 Sep 2017 23:06:49
I still believe Randle can become good, it's a fair trade, but i don't think the Bucks need him.

11 Sep 2017 19:53:51

No way lakers deal randle for just Doug and a 2nd round pick

13 Sep 2017 21:00:29
Lakers will not agree to this.

13 sep 2017 22:09:42
where is kanter for the hornets.

11 Sep 2017 02:51:33

Cavaliers get Bradley & Marjanovic

pistons say no.

28 Aug 2017 16:21:06
Cavs - Celtics

Cavs gets:
2018 Brooklyn 1st
2018 Lakers or 2019 Kings 1st

Celtics gets:
2018 Cavs 1st
Future 2nd Cavs

New deal now when Thomas hip is worse than Celtics said at first. Cavs can move their 2018 first because they get a new one from Brooklyn (via Celtics).

28 Aug 2017 16:30:15
I believe that it doesn't matter what pick from others teams the Cavs gained. They still can't trade their own pick because they traded their 2019 pick so they can't trade their 2018 or 2020. That is why they are trying hard to pick up an additional asset from the Celtics so they have something other than the Nets pick for trade bait.

28 Aug 2017 16:40:34
Rite quick, I'm not sure of the actual rule, but they could make it a pick swap for Cleveland rather than straight up trading picks. That would essentially do the same thing.

28 Aug 2017 17:13:12
Yup, a best/ worst of pick swap would work.

28 Aug 2017 17:34:21
True I didn't think about the pick swap idea. Honestly that would be good for the Cavs anyway to still have a pick somewhere in the draft. They can still trade the pick draft night as well which I think kind of is stupid since you won't allow teams to trade back to back any other time except for draft night. But that's a different subject.

28 Aug 2017 18:12:19
A pick swap in which the Brooklyn of Lakers/ Kings pick is traded for the Cavs pick will not happen, because the Cavs pick will come near the end of Round 1 and be just about irrelevant. The only swap that would make sense is for Cleveland and Boston to trade their own picks, with Cleveland doing the deal if Boston's is better. If it's not better, then the Celtics could flip them one of their many second-rounders.

29 Aug 2017 15:01:39
That's fine Super, no one is suggesting a pick swap for a specific pick, the question was posed "can the Cavs even trade their 2018 pick", and the answer was through a best/ worst swap. That could be with the 2018 C's pick.

29 Aug 2017 15:07:38
Not sure how you know that Thomas'hip is worse than what the Celtics said. No one knows except Ainge and the Cleveland GM. I think the harder the Cavs push for a significant addition to the deal, the more chance the deal falls apart and they get stuck with Irving or end up trading him for an for an inferior return. And they won't have Brooklyns pick, which Cleveland desperately wants.

26 Aug 2017 19:40:39
Cleveland Cavaliers - Los Angeles Clippers

Cleveland trades: Kyrie Irving, Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson.

Los Angeles trades: DeAndre Jordan, Patrick Beverly and '18 first round pick (via Rockets) .

25 Aug 2017 02:09:46

Celtics get Turner & lottery protected 1st 2019

Pacers get Brown & LAL pick 2019

22 Aug 2017 13:50:38

Thunder get Deng & Randle
- take a veteran in Deng who can provide leadership on the bench and getting a starting pf


Lakers get Wade exp & Singler
-get more cap space


Bulls get Kanter , 1st from Lakers & 2nd from Thunder
- maybe they won't mind getting a young center because they are rebuilding and have the cap to take it while adding some more assets


18 Aug 2017 02:44:08
LA Lakers X UTA Jazz

LAL take J.Johnson (exp) & D.Favors (exp)

UTA take J.Clarkson , L.Deng & 1st round pick

18 Aug 2017 09:30:20
Why should the JAZZ spend 30 million a year for deng and clarkson?
The pick is in 2020 and won't be top 10. So the pick hasn't much value.
And do they even have enough cap space for the deal?

17 Aug 2017 15:19:38
What if??
Kyrie goes to Spurs in 3 team deal involving aldridge (send back to Portland)

Melo goes to Rockets with Paul and Harden

Davis goes to Celtics with Thomas

Westbrook, George and Love(via trade) to Lakers with Lonzo Ball and Ingram

LeBron, Wade and Rose teaming up with Whiteside, Dragic and Winslow in Miami

DAndre Jordan to Bucks with Giannis, Brogdon and Middleton

Cousins to Wizards, reuniting with Wall

Nba top East teams would be Heat, Celtics, Wizards, Bucks, Raptors and Sixers

Nba top West teams would be Warriors, Spurs, Rockets, Lakers, Wolves and Blazers

17 Aug 2017 15:51:54
Ok, how about proposing an actual trade.

17 Aug 2017 16:12:39
I see. And the other teams are just going to hand over their Superstars because we need 12 teams to have all the talent. try posting a trade idea instead of a "what if"

17 Aug 2017 16:34:23
The Spurs really don't have much of value to offer the Cavs and I don't see Portland being willing to give up much for Aldridge.

Melo to Houston still could happen, but at this point it seems like a long shot. Unless either Ny or Houston drastically change their stances it doesn't even seem close.

The Celtics would have to offer NO something ridiculous to even make it a conversation. From the Pelicans stand point, why trade Davis right now?

Outside of Ingram and Ball, what would the Lakers have that the Cavs would be interested in? They would have to let Randle walk to sign the first two and would almost certainly have to include Deng in any trade for Love. It's not happening.

Riley screwed over Wade 2 years ago. I don't see him or Lebron being willing to go back.

I' don't see Jordan being a player that Milwaukee really needs. They're already a long team that's solid on defense. They need more shooting.

The Wizards are capped out for the next few years and don't have many valuable assets out side of Wall and Beal, I'm not sure how they would end up with Cousins.

17 Aug 2017 07:43:45
Trades these teams need to make before the 2018 Playoffs!

Lakers : Jordan Clarkson + Luol Deng for Dwyane Wade

Celtics: Jayson Tatum for

Rockets: Trevor Ariza + Tarik Black + Eric Gordon for Carmelo Anthony

Cleveland: Iman Shumpert for Kyle Anderson

OKC: Enes Kanter + Andre Roberson for Dwayne Wade + Cristiano Felicia

Minnesota: Gorgui Deng + Tyus Jones for Greg Monroe + Tyus Jones

NYK: Carmelo Anthony + Joakim Noah for Malik Monk + Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Suns: Eric Bledsoe + Brandon Knight for Dante Exum + 2018 First Round Pick

PHI: Jahlil Okafor + Robert Covington for T.J. Warren + Brandon Knight or
Kent Bazemore

Kings: Kosta Koufous for Wesley Johnson

Bucks : Greg Monroe + Mirza Teletovic for Kent Bazemore + Miles Plumlee

Pelicans: Frank Jackson + 2018 First Round Pick for Tobias Harris

Nuggets: Emmanuel Mudiay + Will Barton + Kenneth Faried for Nicolas Batum

Spurs: Patty Mills + Kyle Anderson + 2018 First Round Pick for Eric Bledsoe

Wizards: Markieff Morris + Kelly Oubre for Keneth Faried

Raptors: Kyle Lowry + C.J. Miles +Serge Ibaka + 2018 1st Round Pick for Kyrie Irving + Iman Shumpert

This last one hurts the most.

17 Aug 2017 07:50:41
almost all are way off.

17 Aug 2017 10:13:08
like which ones.

17 Aug 2017 11:48:35
Can't say for sure, but I tend to doubt that Celtics would be willing to give Tatum away for nothing.

17 Aug 2017 12:00:47
Why would Minnesota want Monroe? And why trade for Tyus Jones when they have Tyus Jones?

17 Aug 2017 16:43:41
Why would the raptors trade there best Pg who's and Allstar and everyone else for kyrie. I laugh at how bad this trade request is maybe a Lowry Powell straight up with a draft pick For kyrie and shumpert.

17 Aug 2017 18:39:54
Knicks give melo and noah for monk and MKG? Yes please.

These are beyond foolish.

17 Aug 2017 22:25:59
Noah's contract is horrible and Monk dropped 50 in NCAA. You are getting another top 10 lottery pick and dumping Noah. For the rebuild.

15 Aug 2017 01:51:55

ATL get Luol Deng , Jason Hart , Julius Randle & LAL 2020 1st

LAL get Dwayne Wade

CHI get Marco Bellineli & Mike Dunleavy

14 Aug 2017 16:41:49
Four team trade: Knicks/Cavaliers/76ers/Suns
New York Knicks trade: Kristaps Porzingis, Carmelo Anthony, Frank Ntilinkina, and Joakim Noah

New York Knicks receive: Kyrie Irving, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Dragan Bender, and Channing Frye

The Knicks are giving up their present and their future all in one deal here. So why would they do this deal? Simple: they are gaining an even brighter future. Irving is a proven star and wants nothing more than to play in New York. The Knicks have been unwilling to include Porzingis in a deal for Irving this offseason, so I remedied that by essentially swapping Anthony out for Saric and Covington, more than fair considering both of their ages and potential, and, more importantly, ridding them of Noah's lengthy and pricey contract. Swapping out Ntilinkina for Bender would be more of a positional swap than anything, as acquiring Irving wouldn't leave much room for Ntilinkina, however, acquiring Bender would provide the Knicks with Porzingis' replacement, one of the most similar type of players as compared to Porzingis in the league. Moreover, this trade would open up over $20 million worth of cap space, and potentially enough for a max contract, for the next offseason. Free agents have never been shy in their desire to play in New York, which would be even more the case with Irving in town and youngsters such as Saric and Bender around.

Irving/Ramon Sessions
Tim Hardaway Jr./Courtney Lee
Covington/Lance Thomas
Kyle O'Quinn/Willy Hernangomez

Cleveland Cavaliers trade: Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson, and Kay Felder

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: Eric Bledsoe, Carmelo Anthony, and Richaun Holmes

In terms of talent, this deal would provide the Cavaliers with more than a fair return in exchange for Irving. While this may not be the same case in terms of value (although definitely debatable), the Cavaliers have been really struggling to find a team willing to give up fair value for Irving and most likely will not find fair value for a player of Irving's status. The Cavaliers will be in a very weird spot this upcoming season with the uncertainty of James' future as a Cavalier hanging over their heads. They desire to acquire a veteran player along with a young prospect with high upside for Irving in the event that LeBron James is to bolt again. With this trade, they would not only acquire one veteran, one who is still only 27-years-old and probably just played his best season of basketball as a professional, but two, the other whose contract expires after this season and they could decide to re-sign should James opt to stay in Cleveland. Although Holmes doesn't possess as high of upside as the Cavaliers would hope, he is signed for two more years on a very cheap contract and coming off a breakout season in which he was extremely effective in terms of per 36 minutes statistics while holding down a very efficient field goal percentage and even stretching the floor for his team by hitting some three pointers. Ridding themselves of Frye, Shumpert, Jefferson, and Felder would neutralize the blow the team would face for acquiring the pricey contracts of Bledsoe and Anthony.

Bledsoe/Derrick Rose
Anthony/Kyle Korver
James/J.R. Smith
Kevin Love/Jeff Green
Tristan Thompson/Holmes

Philadelphia 76ers trade: Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Richaun Holmes, Jahlil Okafor, 2018 76ers first-round pick, and 2018 Lakers first-round pick (top 1 protected)/2019 Kings first-round pick (pick that doesn't get traded to the Celtics)

Philadelphia 76ers receive: Kristaps Porzingis, Joakim Noah, and Richard Jefferson

Giving up four young players with solid upside, two potentially high draft picks, and taking on an absolutely terrible contract (along with a much smaller one) would be a hard pill for the 76ers to swallow. There are only a few players in the league worth this type of package and Porzingis is certainly one of them. Can you seriously imagine the 76ers acquiring Porzingis without giving up Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Markelle Fultz? Wow! The potential for the team to succeed in the future would probably be something that has never been heard of in the past. If all these players are to live up to their highest potential, just imagine a team of James Harden, LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, and Hakeem Olajuwon all playing together. That would be absolutely absurd! The best part would be that the team, even with Noah's contract on the books, would have just under $30 million to spend on free agents next season, with the chance to finesse enough cap space for a maximum contract if need be. Shooting and defense would probably be the two biggest needs for a team of this caliber, and with players such as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley available, the team would have a variety of opportunities to complete their starting line-up for the next 10 years.

Fultz/Jerryd Bayless
J.J. Redick/Nik Stauskas
Simmons/Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
Porzingis/Amir Johnson

Phoenix Suns trade: Eric Bledsoe and Dragan Bender

Phoenix Suns receive: Jahlil Okafor, Frank Ntilinkina, Iman Shumpert, 2018 76ers first-round pick, and 2018 Lakers first-round pick (top 1 protected)/2019 Kings first-round pick (pick that doesn't get traded to the Celtics)

The Phoenix Suns are one of the youngest teams in the league, and they are only hoping to get younger as they look to sell off veterans such as Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and a few others. They have the minutes and room for risk available to take a chance on a player like Okafor, who still has enough offensive potential in him to be a possible surprise for a team willing to take the risk in acquiring him. More important in this deal, however, would be the two picks the team would be acquiring. Even with the magical upside the 76ers would have on their roster following this trade, they would almost undoubtedly need another year to develop into a true contender, and that's not taking injuries into consideration. Granted, the Eastern Conference is probably as weak as it has ever been and the 76ers can just as easily sneak into the playoffs as a seventh or eighth seed as they can finish as an 11th or 12th seed, but even if this pick were to fall as far back as 15th, it would provide the Suns with an opportunity to draft a player with, at minimum, medial upside. The second pick the Suns would receive in this deal would either be the Lakers' draft pick next year or the Kings' draft pick in two years. They would receive the Lakers pick next year if it fell beyond the fifth slot. Considering the likeliness of their pick falling somewhere between the sixth and 10th slot in next year's draft, or the likeliness of the Kings' draft pick landing somewhere in the top five slot the following year, the return the Suns would be receiving in this trade for Bledsoe would be very worthwhile. As mentioned before, swapping Bender for Ntilinkina would be positional more than anything, as Marquese Chriss plays the same position that Bender plays and outperformed him this previous season. The Suns need themselves a young point guard of the future and the hope would be that Ntilinkina would be that guy for them.

Ntilinkina/Tyler Ulis
Devin Booker/Elijah Millsap
Josh Jackson/T.J. Warren
Chriss/Jared Dudley
Okafor/Tyson Chandler

14 Aug 2017 17:36:51
Philly says no, way too much to give up just for Zinger.

14 Aug 2017 17:37:20
Not bad. I think the biggest hang ups would be the amount the 76ers are giving up here and I'm not sure if the Cavs would be willing to go all in this year rather than getting a mix of young talent and established players. Holmes is young, but he is probably a career role player.

14 Aug 2017 19:16:47
Philly says no. Could go either way if that is too much for Porzingis but I could see it happen, but with adding Noah that is way too much imo. They should be keeping one of Covington or Saric and one of those first should become 2 seconds

14 Aug 2017 22:44:30
I agree that the 76ers may be giving up too much but what you guys have to understand is that the Knicks aren't at all desperate to trade Porzingis, and even Anthony for that matter taking into account the offers they've received for him, therefore, it would take a king's ransom deal to grab him. 76ers have a lot of assets that they will have to consolidate at some point, and they should that sooner rather than waiting till later and receiving pennies on the dollar.

Porzingis has a truly unique skill set, is a superstar in the making playing in a superstar's league, and is extremely young, making him worth the king's ransom. The fact that they would still have enough money to spend on a top free agent next season in an effort to fill out their line-up would be icing on the cake.

15 Aug 2017 00:41:57
Danny, I just think you're underestimating how much of a negative asset Noah is.

15 Aug 2017 03:43:41
No ones arguing that it would take a ransom to get him but Philly is giving up a ransom and then your acting like the Knicks can throw in one of the worst contracts in the NBA on top of it. Like I said I can see the Sixers doing that without Noah included

15 Aug 2017 15:24:17
I don't see phoenix doing this. Yes they're getting a lot, but it's mainly a lot of nothing. No one wants play of, and the Lakers pick I believe is already owed to Boston for moving up this year to #1. So it would be 2 years before they get the first rounder. And I don't believe they can trade they're own pick since they're already trading one. so basically phoenix trades Bledsoe, and bender for okafor schumperts contract, and the pg from new York.

14 Aug 2017 10:30:06
bledsoe, randle, warren, 2nd lakers (denver) 2018


frye, 1st phoenix 2018

14 Aug 2017 14:31:38
The Cavs would much rather have that Suns first than Randle.

14 Aug 2017 23:47:08
You really think the Lakers are getting a 1st rounder for handle who's a free agent this summer? It scares me to know that there's people running around out there this stupid.

13 Aug 2017 13:10:14
Lakers: T Parker

NY: M Conley

Spurs: M gasol

Memphis: J Noah+ L Deng+ Ntilikina+ 1rnd pick NY 2018+ 1rnd pick Spurs 2019+ 1rnd pick LA 2020 and 2022

LA get capspace

NY receive a star an can keep C anthony

The spurs get an all star center

Memphis can rebuilt with a young talent and 4 future draft picks

13 Aug 2017 17:45:04
I don't know that LA would want to give up two firsts in this deal just to move Deng. I also understand the rebuilding aspect with all the picks to the Grizz, but both Deng and Noah boat anchors them for a while.

13 Aug 2017 23:26:40
I like it. Pretty realistic cause the Lakers need to move Deng, the Spurs need to step up like the rest of the conference, the Knicks need a great PG, and Grizzlies could rebuild in the tough West. The Grizzlies aren't really tied up to any long term deals besides Conley/ Gasol/ Parsons so they could take back a Noah/ Deng with picks and be okay. I might want to minus one of the future Lakers picks and replace it with a Kyle Kuzma or Josh Hart and have the Spurs throw in the extra 1st Round pick because I feel Gasol for one first is Hughes robbery.

11 Aug 2017 17:01:50
Lakers and raptors

Raptors get Deng and Randle

Lakers get JV first round pick and

Then lakers go and trade JV and clarkson for more assets.

11 Aug 2017 21:32:08
Toronto hangs up laughing.

12 Aug 2017 02:42:58
No way, Raptors.

17 Aug 2017 16:48:30
Why no for raptors please explain. Rankles young and quick can play post and has about the same upside as JV. Deng can come in and play Sf/ Pf and lakers can go around and trade JV for some more assets so how is this a No for Raptors? Jv's value is declining each day.

10 Aug 2017 14:06:42
A few Nuggets moves just for fun.


Denver gets Klay Thompson, Looney, McCaw
GSW get Wilson Chandler, Murray, Harris, 1st rounder
***GSW can't keep everyone together forever and Klay seems to be the star that would be the odd man out. This is a great return for them.


Denver gets Jordan Clarkson
Lakers get Jameer Nelson, Will Barton
***Lakers want cap room for next summer. If they strike out on the big names, Barton at lest still has potential.


Denver gets Kyle Singler, 2nd rounder (CHI)
Thunder get Trey Lyles
***Thunder could use another big and Denver could use the asset.

With these moves, Denver puts together a really nice team to compete in the West.

Clarkson, Mudiay, Morris
Thompson, Beasley, McCaw
Looney, Singler
Milsap, Faried, Arthur
Jokic, Plumlee


10 Aug 2017 14:27:07
Clarkson isn't a starting pg (he's better at the two or a combo guard off the bench) and I don't see the Nuggets being willing to give up both Harris and Murray in any deal. One of the two would be best case scenario.

10 Aug 2017 10:26:33

CHI get Jeremy Lin , Julius Randle & 2nd from LAL
- get a PG and back up PF

Pg Lin/Dunn/Payne
Sg LaVine/Holiday
Sf Valentine/Zipser
Pf Portis/Randle
Ce Lopez/Markannen/Felicio

LAL get Dwayne Wade
saves money

Pg Ball/Clarkson/Ennis
Sg Wade/KCP
Sf Ingram/Brewer
Pf Nance/Kuzma
Ce Lopez/Zubac

BKN get Luol Deng & future LAL 1st round pick
get a pick by taking a contract

Pg Russell/Whitehead
Sg Crabbe/LeVert
Sf Carroll/Kilpatrick
Pf Deng/Booker
Ce Mozgov/Acy

10 Aug 2017 13:23:32
I don't hate this. It saves LA money, and gets them one of their banana boat boys in house this season. It gives Chicago a PG who can help guide Dunn and some big potential in Randle. And it gives Brooklyn an asset moving forward without giving much up now, which fits their strategy as well as helping my Celtics this year. Great move!

10 Aug 2017 17:56:51
The Nets won't take the 50 million of Deng for a 2020 1st rounder (range 15-25).

09 Aug 2017 06:25:00

Lakers get C.Anthony
sign D.Williams


Knicks get J.Clarkson , T.Booker (exp) & 2nd from BKN


Nets get L.Deng & 1st from LAL


09 Aug 2017 14:25:23
It takes more than a first to get rid of Deng.

09 Aug 2017 15:41:50
I like this trade for NY and Brooklyn.

But why would LA trade for an ageing (Anthony is still good) player?

09 Aug 2017 05:09:52
With the Kyrie Irving to the Pistons rumors just starting if they can't work out other trade proposals with other teams. The Cavs would like a veteran, young player who can potentially be a future piece to the team and a draft pick.

A proposed trade of Irving and Thompson for Jackson, Johnson and Drummond was brought up thru an E-S-P-N analyst. But i still like Drummond on the team and i propose a trade.

Pistons get:
PG Kyrie Irving
2019 2nd round pick (MIN or LAL pick)

Cavs get:
PG Reggie Jackson
SF Stanley Johnson
2019 1st round pick (top 5 protected)

*note: i believe the 2nd round pick is from either MIN or LAL...if i'm wrong then let me know

Pistons get an All Star in Irving who along with Bradley, Harris and Drummond can be a good starting 4 and with the 2nd round pick, theyd get 3 2nd round picks in 2019.

Cavs add Jackson, who with Rose getting the starting PG but both have injury history so both can contribute in split time and last longer. Johnson ultimately replace James if he does leave next year to the Lakers like most are projecting. They also add a 1st round pick that year since they don't have one due to the Korver deal (it is top 14 protected but Cavs should be outside the top 14 regardless) and be a future building block for the potential rebuild.

Also....this trade nearly matches the salary with less then 0.250 in salary of difference. So salaries do match and by trading a 1st into the trade would be enough without giving up Drummond

Pistons Lineup

PG: Irving
SG: Bradley
SF: Harris / Kennard*
PF: Leuer / Harris*
C: Drummond

Harris & Leuer if they wanna play big
Kennard & Harris if they wanna play small

09 Aug 2017 13:27:55
I don't see why cleveland would want this. They get an overpaid pg who's had 1 decent year, a disappointing lottery pick in Johnson, and a late first rounder.

09 Aug 2017 14:28:33
Agree with skills, I doubt the Cavs have any interest in Jackson and Johnson isn't the high upside player they're looking for. It would need to be Drummond, Johnson or Kennard, and a 1st.
