Heat - Lakers - Thunder

Heat gets:
Muscala (expiring)
2022 2nd rd pick (Lakers)

Lakers gets:
Noel (expiring)

Thunder gets:
Dragic (expiring)
Cousins (release)
2023 2nd rd pick (Lakers)

22 Aug 2019 15:15:05
The Heat and Lakers both get shafted.

22 Aug 2019 15:39:18
Lakers 2022 2nd is not tradable. Its going to either Chicago, Memphis or Washington according to RealGM.

22 Aug 2019 17:29:22
The Heat are not taking Paul without getting their 2 1st Rnd picks back from Okc. That’s Riley’s starting price.

Okc is not giving up those 2 1st Rnd picks unless they get in return Presti’s asking price. In part which is Dragic’s expiring and one of the Heat’s young assets.

Neither side will blink unless they are forced to and truthfully neither side is realistically playing for a championship this season, so they can wait if forced to until next season for changes.

Okc and Paul’s options won’t really begin for this season until between Dec 15th and Feb 7th. That’s when Presti will be forced to blink or not.

22 Aug 2019 10:24:00
The Lakers get Ferguson, Noel, Muscala, Paul and 2 Indy 2nds.

The Thunder get Leaf, Mcdermott, Sumner, KCP, Bradley, Cousins(waive), and Daniels(waive)

Indiana gets Danny Green

22 Aug 2019 15:40:25
KCP vetoes.

22 Aug 2019 18:24:12
Okc isn’t giving up Ferguson here

22 Aug 2019 18:30:48
Who thinks KCP is going to sign off playing in OKC?

23 Aug 2019 00:06:37
Fredman he has a choice? I thought that was last contract.

21 Aug 2019 12:30:36
Heat - Lakers - Thunder

Heat gets:
Muscala (expiring)

Lakers gets:
Dragic (expiring)
Noel (expiring)

Thunder gets:
Leonard (expiring)

21 Aug 2019 13:19:30
The Heat have basically came out and said that they aren’t trading Paul for free. It just doesn’t make sense with how he played last year and the years left.

21 Aug 2019 13:56:13
The Heat get under the luxury tax and save money this season.

21 Aug 2019 14:03:54
For this season, sure, they're out of luxury tax. But their cap is throttled for the next 4 by taking on Paul. If you're going to screw your cap, you need to get assets out of it.

22 Aug 2019 06:54:57
Thunder will keep Paul and let him expire before giving up a first pick to trade him. Don't think they stretch him either. Gallo expires next year so there not in the tax or need cap over next two offseasons. Like I see thunder doing something like Teague and dieng for Paul and a second round pick. Or for lee and hard away for Paul and a second.

21 Aug 2019 11:05:17
The Heat get Gallo, Paul, Horton-Tucker, and two Lakers 2nds

The Thunder get Johnson, Waiters, Leonard(exp), Caldwell-Pope(expiring), Cousins(waive), Caruso, a Lakers 2nd and save 8 million dollars.

The Lakers get Dragic and Noel.

The Heat improve their team and probably end up a piece away from being a contender to come out of the East. Plus, they get some assets for taking on Paul.

I think the Paul stuff is going to go south. They're not going to be that good and Paul wants to be on a contender. They get off Paul, save money, get some smaller assets and open up more cap for this offseason.

The Lakers get the guard that they need who can keep the offense running when Lebron is out and get a center that can give them decent minutes.

21 Aug 2019 13:23:04
KCP can veto. And probably would.

Also we are talking about Lakers 2nds 2023-2025. Seems like a while for compensation.

18 Aug 2019 17:02:39
MEM/ Lakers

Memphis trades Dwight Howard
Lakers trade Demarcus Cousins + 2023 2nd rounder (Lakers earliest available draft pick) .

Would have to wait until Dec 15, but doubt Memphis just buys out Howard unless he gives them a great deal (like 75% discount) .

18 Aug 2019 17:26:10
It would be worth it just to send James's reaction when Howard starts goofing off in the middle of a game.

16 Aug 2019 08:35:47
Between December 15 and the trade deadline.

Lakers - Thunder

Lakers gets:

Thunder gets:
Cousins (Release)

Lakers gets a veteran star in Paul have a starting 5 with, CP3-Bradley-LeBron-Davis-McGee. They now have roster spots for buyout players.

Thunder save money now and in the future without loosing any of their picks.

16 Aug 2019 08:49:55
Teams these days need depth. Lakers better off keeping it than rely on a young stud and 2 old stars to win.

16 Aug 2019 09:12:39
You can also include Dallas and send Hardaway Jr. to the Thunder while Green and KCP end up with the Mavericks.

16 Aug 2019 10:59:06
They can add depth when players get bought out.

16 Aug 2019 16:23:03
Tell me again why they would trade away Green & KCP?
For roster spots to pick waiver wire players???

And then why the Thunder would want to have Hardaway over Green & KCP???

I’m not sure who your preferred team is, but Okc is getting an absurd amount of salary relief, Dallas is the one who benefits from the player trade & Rob Pelinka would be fired the next day.

16 Aug 2019 17:06:07
Lakers have the worst backcourt in the league and CP3 would be a huge upgrade.

16 Aug 2019 22:43:58
Lakers have the worst backcourt? Really?

16 Aug 2019 23:21:17
That Orlando or Philly backcourt can be pretty bad.

14 Aug 2019 08:42:57
OKC - Lakers

OKC gets LeBron and AD

Lakers get Raymond Felton and Steven Adams

This trade gives the Thunder an experienced veteran in LeBron, who can come off the bench, and a young player like AD who could be a future all star.

Lakers get an asset in Steven Adams, and an all star in Raymond Felton.

14 Aug 2019 10:50:10
So you think that's funny?

14 Aug 2019 12:12:27
Great. A new troll has moved in.

14 Aug 2019 15:45:25
The salaries don’t match, unless we do a sign and trade with Felton.
But I heard Felton has a lot of other offers and I just don’t know if he’d be willing to go play for the Lakers.

Here’s to hoping Presti can pull off some of his magic.

08 Aug 2019 11:29:08

Pelicans/ Aldridge + Carroll


Spurs/ Favors + Ingram + Gallinari


Thunder/ Melli + Bellineli + Forbes + 1st from Pelicans from Lakers


08 Aug 2019 12:18:54
The Pelicans are getting robbed.

08 Aug 2019 14:14:36
Okc would consider it to save some money for the upcoming year and for a draft pick, but would probably need it to be swapped for the Cleveland 1st Rnd pick.
Forbes is the only player that sort of fits their direction and has real value for them but is on an expiring contract.

09 Aug 2019 04:21:49
OKC23. You may want to check the protections on that Cleveland pick. OKC gets an actual 1st rounder from the Lakers or what will probably be 2 second rounders from Cleveland. And OKC is not getting a lottery pick for Gallinari.

09 Aug 2019 16:22:49
Fredman, neither 1st Rnd picks is a lottery pick.
The only consideration is an extremely late LA 1st in 2022 or a pair of really high 2nd in 2021 and 2022.

Gallinari won’t pull a lottery pick from anyone, but he will gain a much better player, pick or salary relief than someone like a Dragic will on a similar contract.

01 Aug 2019 07:18:51

NOLA get RJ Barrett

WAS get 1st from LAL via NOLA, 2 1st from NYK (DAL), Frank Ntilikina, Brandon Ingram & Wayne Ellington

Pg Brogdon/McConnell/Holiday

Feels like the fit of Turner to Zion is perfect

Pg Holiday/Ball/Jackson
Sg Reddick/Hart/Alexander
Sf Moore/McDermott/Miller
Pf Williamson/Hayes
Ce Turner/Okafor

25 Jul 2019 17:22:37
Just curious from the Lakers and OKC fans. If Kawhi had said to the Lakers to trade Anthony Davis for Paul George and he would sign with the Lakers. Do the Lakers do the deal? Does OKC accept the straight up offer?

25 Jul 2019 18:05:41
No way OKC would do it straight up considering AD's desire to play in a big market and only 1 year remaining on his deal.

25 Jul 2019 19:06:51
Davis would had vetoed this trade and stayed with the Lakers.

25 Jul 2019 20:15:11
I believe Lakers would bc that would be a great Big 3 that would make them championship contenders for years. Idk abt Okc tho since I doubt AD would resign back.

25 Jul 2019 20:21:32
I think both sides would do it.

If you're the Lakers, that's a no brainer. Davis vs Kawhi and George really isn't even close. Maybe you're looked at as having little loyalty, but no one cares about the team's lack of loyalty to players.

OKC probably does too. They could flip AD for an enormous haul. Or make it a three way deal where they pull in a final landing point for AD and get OKC those assets.

25 Jul 2019 19:44:12
So the Rich Paul agent angle would come into play.

26 Jul 2019 09:33:40
The biggest problem with this is the kind of team the Lakers would’ve become if Okc did this.
AD would do us no good. LA would’ve been so dominant for several more years(Golden State 2.0). We wouldn’t be competitive for a championship even if AD signed & stayed with Okc, but that never would’ve happened.
And no other team would give us much for him unless they had assurances he would stay with them after the following year.

26 Jul 2019 15:09:26
Haven't we proved that teams will give up massive trade packages for players without assurance they'll stay?

26 Jul 2019 23:15:47
Bmiller66, tell me which of those recent dealings the player did end up staying.
PG is the only one that sort of did and because of that, Okc was able to recoup some assets for him. Ultimately he left to go play for the city he said he wanted to play for initially.

Kawhi played one season and bolted to the city he said he wanted to go play for.

That being said, which team would be willing to trade for him heavily, not knowing where he will probably bolt off too after the season is over, if they don’t get some kind of assurance and believe he may resign with them?

23 Jul 2019 12:13:19
Warriors: Reddick/Ingram/MCW


Magic: Ball/1st rounder Lakers via Pelicans


Pelicans: Russell/Bamba


20 Jul 2019 12:40:49
First trade

Memphis send iguodala and take kennard, jackson and a second rounder from pistons via miami

Second trade

Thunder send schroder and take brown jr, galloway and a second rounder from pistons via lakers

Sign korkmaz, jamal, vince and zaza with min deals

After the trade Detroit roster have enough roster depth for the playoff in east as a 6th seed team after mil, phi, bos, ind, tor

Rose, schroder, jamal
Svi, korkmaz
Doumbouya, iguodala
Griffin, morris
Drummond, maker, zaza.

20 Jul 2019 13:16:01
Memphis has stated that they want a first round pick for Iggy. I doubt a 2023 2nd (that is actually the worse pick of Dallas and Miami) would be enough for Memphis to send Iggy and take on $5 mil in salary.

21 Jul 2019 03:38:46
Bad for both teams. Guts the youth in Detroit and isn’t enough for Memphis to take on the extra salary to lose Iggy.

19 Jul 2019 05:14:46

LAL Receive:
Bradley Beal
Ian Mahinmi
2021 Second Round Pick

WAS Receive:
Kyle Kuzma
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Alex Caruso
Lakers 2022 First Round Pick

19 Jul 2019 08:50:39
Money is a big problem.

19 Jul 2019 12:07:40
Salaries not close to matching snd Lakets can not trade 2022 pick because of Stepien Rule and the protections on the 2021 pick that went to New Orleans.

08 Jul 2019 13:03:45
The Warriors would consider trading current fan-favorite Stephen Curry to another team. Kerr wants Curry to Lakers. Others want him to Suns, Timberwolves or Pelicans.

08 Jul 2019 14:50:00
Not sure why would consider it. They have 4 all stars on their team. They have the most talent of any team in the NBA, and are set to compete for championships for the next few years so long as they can retain Green.

Also, why in the world would they want to trade him to the Lakers? And what do the Laker have to trade? (the answer is nothing unless they're including AD) .

08 Jul 2019 15:11:24
I think the GS run is over, but they still have one off the best teams in the league. So why break up a team that could make it to the finals, sells jerseys and seats?

I do believe they should trade a player, because i don't like a backourt with Curry and Russell. but they should only trade Curry if he wants out and for a steep price.

08 Jul 2019 00:12:25
Thunder trade Westbrook
Magic trade Bamba, Fultz, Mozgov, 2020 & 2022 1st round pick, 2nd round pick Lakers 2020

- huge upgrade at PG with Westbrook and Aminu is a solid replacement for Gordon, so Orlando is at least a playoff team for years to come
- strong starting 5 and also bench

- first, if Thunder keep Westbrook, they will not get deep into lottery and there is a chance that he will get injured taking all the load (4th triple double season), not mentioned he's in his 30's now
- rebuild around young players (Shai, Bamba, Grant, Ferguson, Bazley, Diallo) and all(!!!) the draft picks
- keep Adams for a while to mentor Bamba and trade him before trade deadline

07 Jul 2019 06:37:36
Mid season shock

Lal: Russell Westbrook

Boston:kcp, green two future seconds

Okc Kyle kuzma swap to first they have left, Hayward, 1st rnd boston

06 Jul 2019 19:20:15
