Lakers trade - Deng 2019 1st 2020 2nd and Bonga

Kings trade - Shumpert and Koufos or Zbo

15 Aug 2018 08:26:39
This good unless the Knicks give up there pick and Noah would to this because Knicks pick will be top 8.

13 Aug 2018 17:26:12

Houston gets Snell
Lakers get Henson, Dellavedova
Bucks get Anderson, Deng, HOU 1st 2019, LAL 1st 2019

Why Rockets? They get a 3 and D wing needed for their rotation. They also save 10 mil, which is valuable as they are deep in the tax now.

Why Lakers? They get two players that can contribute with Deng's money at the cost of a first. They still keep space to sign a max player like Kawhi and avoid streching Deng, which won't give them either way a second max spot.

Bucks get two late 1sts from their three bad contracts. They don't take more money back considering Snell's third year. Should they resign Middleton and Brogdon next year they won't have money for FA, so these picks will be really usefull to them.

13 Aug 2018 21:07:40
I believe the Bucks would pass.

13 Aug 2018 21:32:17
Milwaukee is a better team in the short term and long term not doing this trade. Picks that late are a gamble and thejr defense would be really bad.

13 Aug 2018 21:55:15
I’d just keep snell and Henson. Atleast they’re both in the rotation. There’s no real guarantee those picks are even that and that’s so much bad salary to take on.

13 Aug 2018 22:22:11
Ya agree finally with torque the bucks pass for horrible contracts and really late 1sts Deng and Anderson’s contracts are just dumb!

14 Aug 2018 10:38:29
Bucks will be like this after that

Bledsoe/ Brogdon/ Duval
Brown/ DDV/ Morris
Middleton/ Connaughton/ Deng
Giannis/ Anderson/ Wilson
Lopez/ Ilyasova/ Maker

They remain deep, but they need Brown and DDV to step up. If they resign Middleton and Brogdon and keep Bledsoe and Lopez for one more year they will be at the tax either way. With that trade they will have picks 20,22,28 which will be really helpful for a team with no money to spend.

14 Aug 2018 14:34:43
@nmilpso, . Deng @33 yrs old is scheduled to make 36 Mil. (18 Mil. per year) for the next 2 years.
Ryan @30 yrs old is scheduled to make 41 Mil. (20 and 21 Mil. ) for the next 2 years. for the next 2 years.
That's 77 Mil. for 2 players in their 30's that would be non-starters. It seems just a bit much, wouldn't you agree?

14 Aug 2018 18:34:51
@torque Delly, Snell, Henson combined are scheduled to make 75.2 mil, so Bucks don't take more salary with that. Plus they get rid of Snell's third year, which is important as they should make a hit in FA 2020 to convince GIannis to stay. This is the first benefit and the second is the two 1sts.

Bucks will go in the 2020 FA with this core

Brogdon/ pick 20
Brown/ DDV/
Middleton/ pick 22
Giannis/ Wilson
Maker/ Pick 28

And 40 million to spend for 1-2 players that will take them to the next level. It's a risky plan, but I think better than doing nothing.

14 Aug 2018 20:15:08
@milpso, First, You're comparing 75 mil. for 3 players, against 77 Mil. for 2 players? Second, Last year, Henson and Snell both started, and Dellevedova was the off the bench. When was the time Anderson and Deng started? It still seems like a lot for 2 bench players to me. I'd rather pay the 3 younger players money.

14 Aug 2018 20:42:59
I just prefer Brown, DDV, Maker taking Snell's, Delly's, Henson's minutes. Bucks need to make some guality players since they can't get any from FA. Anderson can hit some 3s for Bud and even Deng may still have something to contribute. Next summer you have three mid high picks to grow your core. And you go to FA 2020 with money and a really appealing roster to convince a superstar join the team. Sorry @torque this is the way I see it!

15 Aug 2018 00:52:06
@milpso, Understood, I guess that's what this forum is for, Different opinions, and scenarios, Ours just differ is all.

13 Aug 2018 05:43:52
Lakers plan.
After season trade three first round picks Ball, Ingram wagner and Deng expiring contract for Davis. Lakers will have cap to max out Leonard. And like twenty more to spend. With James at 35 Leonard and Davis would be 2020 champs

13 Aug 2018 05:59:01
Not enough for Davis. Ingram, kuzma, Ball, and Hart plus multiple firsts is the minimum offer (that would still be rejected) .

13 Aug 2018 06:27:00
Don't go there bro.

13 Aug 2018 07:13:22
The only way Davis or any player worth that value, is when they in there rookie contract. You don't give up multiple young players with lots of potential for a player with two years left. Pacers didn't get half that for George or spurs downgraded getting derozan. What superstarr was traded and the team got multiple picks and got young players with lots of potential. What about melo denver got a lot of players with low potential. Look what magic got for Howard. Ball and Ingram plus 3 picks is enough for Davis especially ayer this year completely done.

13 Aug 2018 12:28:59
Name a superstarr who got traded and the opposite got 4 players with star like potentially

shaq, what did they get when they traded him. No where near 4 young players and 3 picks.

13 Aug 2018 14:13:29
Shaq was a free agent signing.

Teams don't trade top 5 players in the league.

Ingram, Kuzma, Ball, HArt - you consider these 4 players with star potential? that's cute. No one else does.

13 Aug 2018 14:18:28
Name a superstar that got traded with multiple years left on their deal in recent memory.

You might not give up that much, but teams also don’t give up superstars that aren’t on expiring deals either.

13 Aug 2018 14:57:16
Shaq got traded to Miami.

13 Aug 2018 15:12:28
Blake Griffin got traded with 5 years, harden got traded at rookie, derozann with 3. After this year Davis will have two years left with player option. So basically expiring contract. Like I said after seasonn trade. The package I put together is better then what the Bulls got for Butler expiring deal, better then Chris Paul, Paul Georgeand Blake Griffin with 4 years Left.

13 Aug 2018 15:32:18
Shaq was 32 and that was 14 years ago (not what I'd call recent memory for trade history) .

Supermax deals also didn't exist then, so retaining superstars wasn't as easy as it is now. Different era of contracts/ cap.

I'd say the Melo deal is similar. There were a lot of high value guys in that deal. Just because none of them turned into stars doesn't mean there wasn't a lot of young talent. My guess is that in 5 years, you say the same about those 4 Lakers. A lot of talent, but none really turned into a true star.

And you have to beat Boston's potential offers. I think they'd offer Tatum and Rozier (as much as Boston fans don't want to believe it), which beats just about anything LA can try.

13 Aug 2018 17:55:55
Yeah, to try and make an argument based off shaq at the tail end of his career, awesome.

Harden got traded on a rookie contract? that's your example? The thunder were unable to workout a contract extension for a sixth man averaging 16pts, and played no defense. They got 2 1sts and a second, 2 players, and that was for a non-established "star" Derozzen got traded. FOR A BETTER PLAYER.

Point is, it doesn't happen. Especially not for a package as little as you are suggesting. Davis is a flat out, established, stud. Top 5 player in the league. you're trying to convince everyone, and probably yourself, that Hart has star potential. A guy who is 23 and averaged 7 pts, not really a "star" in the eyes of anyone who watches basketball.

13 Aug 2018 18:40:39
Howard and Paul where top five players when traded. The cap is different and the super max is but the ratio is about the same. Like when cap was 80 mil a max could get the same 30-35 percent of cap. So no big difference. After Hart kuzma ball and Ingram play with james there going to blossom. So top players on expiring deals don't get traded which is what Davis will be next year like when the trade take place. Butler, Leonard, Paul, George, Howard, d will, love, all on expiring deals and either team got a package like 3 first and got 4 young players on rookie contracts with lots of potential. Ingram and kuzma averaged 16 as rookies. b all ten and 7 7 and Hart was not really given a chance but in summer league he stood out so that's potential there.

13 Aug 2018 18:54:30
This is the best i can remember:

I believe the Lakers traded 4 picks for S Nash ( tragedy started in 2012 and ended in 2018

The Suns traded S Cassel+ M Finley+ AC Green for J Kidd

Chris Paul was traded for E Gordon, C Kaman and Aminu ( an all star and two talented prospects in 2011)

Boston traded for Garnett, giving up A Jefferson a future draft pick and the return of the Wolves pick.

K Garnett and P Pierce for the Nets future

The Nets traded for D Williams, giving up D Harris, D Favors, two first round picks and cash.

13 Aug 2018 19:13:49
Lakers traded 2 first 13 and 15 for Nash. Everything else seems close and legit. But my point no where near 4 young potentially players and 3 picks.

13 Aug 2018 20:32:28
Eh, fine, keep Hart, no one thinks he has much potential but Laker fans. Probably be Ingram, Kuzma, Ball, and a first. And again, I don't think NO accepts that offer.

I just don't think the same that you do about those players. They're nice young players, but if I had to bet on the over/ under of all star appearances by all 3 players combined at 1.5, I'd take the under.

I'd want more high end potential for a top 5 player.

13 Aug 2018 21:32:49
I think players reach potential by how there coached like Leonard and Butler. Plus being ateam with great players helps your growth.

Still to much for expiring deal no matter who the player is. Think it's too much because after this year and those players playing with the king will develop better.

13 Aug 2018 22:39:49
You throw Deng in there too there is no way possible New Orleans excepts this trade! Ingram is the only good piece and I don’t think he will ever be a allstar and ball gets you his dad and nobody wants that person. yes 3 1st rd picks are great but a team with lebron davis and whoever gets you pick 27 if not higher so no from pelicans.

14 Aug 2018 01:53:54
There still first picks and can be traded with there own pick to move up in draft. Next year Deng will have one year left so he can be waived so don't see no harm especially when you getting two top picks in Ingram and ball plus 3 first.

14 Aug 2018 03:49:01
Next year when the scenario is taking place Davis will be an expiring contract. This would be good but there would be other deals in play.

15 Aug 2018 12:07:03
Harden was a zero time all star that had some potential, but no one thought he was an MVP when he got traded.

Blake is breaking down and hadn't been an all star in a couple years when he got traded.

Derozan was traded for a top 5 player. And he's not close to the player AD is, he's not a top 5 player.

Davis' value drops when they offer him a supermax and he doesn't take it. At that point, every team in the NBA will call and offer something. LA has to beat EVERYONE in the NBA. Ingram, Ball, and a handful of picks 27-30 doesn't seem like the best deal anyone in the NBA would offer.

13 Aug 2018 01:48:44
Sixers lakers trade

Lakers receive: jerryd bayless, Wilson chandler protected 2019 1st

76ers receive: Brandon ingram, luol deng

13 Aug 2018 22:47:26
Do you honestly think that’s a good deal from the Sixers? They would have to add fultz.

14 Aug 2018 02:42:51
This isn’t a bad trade. I like the fact that Philly gets a Vet and Young weapon of the same position. (teacher and student) but Philly will only give up 1 or 2 second round picks because of Deng having two years remaining on his contract. And they would be helping LA get cap space to sign Leonard and another max player to help LeBron! If I was Phillys GM, No thanks unless they drop the request for a pick!

15 Aug 2018 12:02:08
Ingram will be on the block if he has a bad year but he's an important piece right now.

12 Aug 2018 22:51:26
Suns Trade Brandon Knight Dragon Bender Troy Daniels 2019 second round pick 2 million Cash to Lakers

Lakers Trade Lonzo Ball Luol Deng to Suns

What's y'all think ?

Who win the Trades?

12 Aug 2018 23:24:48
Lakers will dump deng and an asset eventually but not to take back a salary like knights.

13 Aug 2018 00:11:26
If suns get ball it better be expiring or else u are overvaluing bender.

13 Aug 2018 00:15:01
I believe knight is guranteed about $14 mill this year and $15.6mill the following year. Deng is guranteed $18 mill this year and $18.8 mill the following year. That only clears $3.2 mill off the books for LA. Don't see why they do this?

13 Aug 2018 00:23:03
LeBron James wins this trade. Hands down. He rids himself of the lavar Ball side show and is a much happier man.

13 Aug 2018 00:27:24
It's a surprisingly even trade and both teams fill some needs.

Lakers get cap space and a big who can soak up some much needed C mins this year.

Suns get a great PG fit for their team for now and the future for very little out going assets.

The only thing that may stop the trade is Laker's view of Lonzo.

Nice trade idea.

13 Aug 2018 02:30:23
Big wiz:. Lakers get barely $3 mill cap space and give up lonzo. Why would they ever do this?

11 Aug 2018 03:34:09

Deng can still play, Luke should give him a chance to play.

11 Aug 2018 08:15:10
In all honestly I think luke should give Deng a chance.

11 Aug 2018 17:05:32
Come on y'all he getting 18 mil he should at least get 8th man.

11 Aug 2018 20:20:47
deng should not be taking any minutes away from ingram or kuz. or svi for that matter. thus, he gets no chance.

12 Aug 2018 22:52:52
They are already saying Deng is "semi-retired" He doesn't even want a chance.

11 Aug 2018 03:14:40

11 Aug 2018 20:28:10
dont like it for bk at all. essentially they are flipping dinwiddie for a post-lottery 1st and harris for an early 2nd. that doesn’t sound terrible in a vacuum, but i'd rather stick with those guys. would feel better if they got a young guy from phx like chriss or bridges (longshot)

12 Aug 2018 17:43:00
Great deal for Lakers.

Good deal for Spurs.

Horrible deal for Hornets.

Deng contract is not tradeable. He is fat and slow. Deng will not see the floor this year for Lakers. The only team that likes Deng is Minnesota (Tibbs) .

12 Aug 2018 19:15:53
Dieng for deng? Kidding, the Lakers would never do that.

Lakers are 8 seed at best with current roster and will get swept.

08 Aug 2018 19:26:59
@shizz lakers will make at least one trade at the deadline that makes them contenders.

08 Aug 2018 23:04:04
Their not trading their young pieces. How are going contend west. I think they will accept their faith and be patient.

09 Aug 2018 00:05:07
Be patient with a old lebron? Do you even watch basketball?

08 Aug 2018 12:49:16

Bucks get Fournier, Deng
Lakers get Henson
Orlando gets Snell, Dellavedova, MIL 1st, LAL 1st

Milwaukee gets a starting sg that fits to their needs

Lakers save money and get a big needed for their rotation

Orlando sacrifise Fournier for two mid high picks and backup players

08 Aug 2018 13:34:56
Just dumping Deng would cost the Lakers a #1, without getting anything in return. Bucks get screwed big-time in that deal.

08 Aug 2018 13:59:18
Isn’t that basically what’s happening Supercollider? The lakers trade Deng and a first for a player with no value or negative value of his own.

I like it for the Bucks. Fournier isn’t great, but he’s better than what they have. Deng could also be a serviceable rotational player still I think, just massively overpaid.

08 Aug 2018 14:30:58
Fournier is better than what they have? You mean, better than Middleton, Giannis and Brodgan?

08 Aug 2018 14:52:51
Fournier is a better starting sg than Snell on a same deal, 5 mil more per year.

08 Aug 2018 15:02:48
Latest rumor out of Milwaukee is the Bucks are looking to trade Henson and Dellavedova plus a 2nd. rd. pick to the Atlanta Hawks for SG kent Basemore.

08 Aug 2018 15:30:14
Thats not true supercollider! Deng scored 14 pts in a scrimmage the other day! The bucks likely would need to give the lakers the 1st in order for the lakers to be willing to part with that stud!

08 Aug 2018 17:34:40
And aren't Bazemore and Fournier about the same in overall quality Torque?

Well, Fournier doesn't have to overlap Middleton or Giannis. Brogdon doesn't start to my knowledge, and I'd say Fournier is better than him ignoring contracts (Brogdon has more value probably, but that doesn't mean he's a better player) . He's better than Snell without a doubt.

Maybe taking in Deng kills the deal, but I think Fournier would be a good fit in Milwaukee, just like Bazemore would be.

08 Aug 2018 18:17:35
@ Bmiller66, To me its 6 of this, and a half a dozen between Bazemore, and Fournier. I would prefer Bazemore. If Milwaukee would trade Henson and Dellavedova plus a 2nd rd pick. Contracts would match, plus both would finally be gone. Bazemore is a better defender than Fournier also. That's just my take on it.

08 Aug 2018 18:35:39
Yeah, Bazemore is a more defensive guy, Fournier is more of an offensive weapon. Both are solid role players.

08 Aug 2018 18:57:00
Agreed! Bmiller66!

09 Aug 2018 00:14:09
No Giannis needs shooters (Fournier) man bucks fans are dumb! Just a couple more years now till giannis heads to LA.

07 Aug 2018 08:48:55
luol deng , 1st l.a. 2020

shumpert and koufos

07 Aug 2018 15:31:55
this trade looks pretty good for both teams. LA gets rid of Dengs contract, get expiring deals in koufos and shumperet. Kangz take an extra year of Deng at $18.8 million, but gain a 1st. Lakers might have to add something of value though, the 2020 1st will most likely be a late pick in the 22-30 range. maybe add Hart to sweeten the deal.

08 Aug 2018 14:22:32
Kings a divisional team will not bail out their nemesis to help them create 2nd super in their own division.

06 Aug 2018 19:37:17
I don’t see Lilliard getting traded for that unless Ball has a really good year.

06 Aug 2018 22:27:06
Lillard’s not being dealt for that even if Ball has a good year.

06 Aug 2018 23:11:43
Portland wouldn't take less than Ingram, Kuzma, and picks. They'd have no interest in Ball, he would be a bad fit in a small market with his family.

07 Aug 2018 17:09:47
Ingram and Kuzma wih multiple 1sts is too much for lillard. Jimmy Butler was set to be traded for dunn and Lavine before dunn was drafted. Then dunn had a bad year and Lavine got injured. Trade then included a pick swap which ended up being Markannen/ Patton. Lillard is not as valuable as butler, and Kuzma and Ingram are more accomplished than Lavine and dunn were. No pick needed. Even a late 1st is too much. Maybe a 2nd.

08 Aug 2018 03:42:46
Btec- pillard is better than butler.

06 Aug 2018 04:21:53
Pacers get - Drummond and Wagner

Pistons get - Deng Ingram Thad and Bogdanovic

Lakers get - Turner and Leuer




06 Aug 2018 11:35:50
This is awful for Detroit.

06 Aug 2018 13:53:34
I believe Ingram is going to be better than Drummond, so i don't think it's awfull for Detroit.

I don't dislike this for Indy, but i don't think Sabonis- Drummond would work, Turner isn't a great 3-point shooter, but atleast he can shoot the three.

I don't get it why LA would prefer Turner over Drummond. Drummond is locked for a few years and Turner is going to be a free agent. There's no need to involve Indy in this trade.

06 Aug 2018 15:29:29
Gasupo- Lakers are trying go get one year deals to keep max space for next summer.

06 Aug 2018 17:13:19
Yeah, but you don't refuse Drummond, if you can trade him for Ingram and Deng.
Otherwise they better keep Ingram and stretch Deng's contract over 4 years.

06 Aug 2018 03:57:32
3 team trade

Bulls get deng

Lakers holiday and valentine

Mavs get felicio and lakers 1rst round pick 2019

06 Aug 2018 12:38:05
Am I missing something, or did the Bulls give up a good young prospect to take back Deng?

06 Aug 2018 13:11:43
Why would the Bulls bring in Deng and get nothing in compensation for it? To get rid of Deng, the team picking him up needs to be getting at least a 1st and a 2nd.

06 Aug 2018 14:13:13
Bulls get rid of felicio contract i rather over pay deng then keep any of those 3 players they giving away lakers 1rst round pick was bulls comp but they move it to dallas for them taking felicio. This also frees playing time up for blakeney and hutchinson.

06 Aug 2018 21:59:53
Lakers fans should learn from cavs fan, smh.

04 Aug 2018 12:48:30
Wolves trade Lakers

Lakers get Butler

Wolves get deng,Ingram,and 2 1rst round picks

04 Aug 2018 13:02:22
Deng is a negative, Ingram is OK, and the two firsts will probably be late in the round and not worth much. Wolves can get a lot more for JB.

04 Aug 2018 15:43:56
Pretty lame offer to Wolves, even if Butler is potentially just a Rental.

04 Aug 2018 01:15:43

Lakers get Bledsoe, Zeller
Suns get Ball, Wilson
Bucks get Jackson, Deng, LAL 1st, PHO 2nd

Lakers get rid of Deng's contract and Ball circus. They get Lebron's buddy to fight with Rondo and one more body needed behind McGee and Zubac. They also make cap space to sign Leonard and one more max player (Klay?) in 2019.

Suns trade No4 2017 pick for No2 in a position they hurt the most.

Bucks remove Brogdon to pg and try to make Jackson their future sg. They also take some picks for eating Deng's monster deal.

04 Aug 2018 01:59:12
Don't think suns do this.

Milwaukee currently has 13 guards, Including 2 on 2way contracts, and the signing of another SG (Connaughton) Why add another? Plus, Why add Deng? 33 yrs old, and owed 36 mil. for the next 2 years! I believe the Bucks would pass.

Suns say no Lakers say no.

04 Aug 2018 04:34:15
Lakers say no.

04 Aug 2018 14:58:05
Nary a chance PHX would agree to this.

How bad does LA want to rid themselves of Deng and is horrible contract? Could sign 2 max players if they do. LA is a star driven big market city, not a "wait for the youth to develop" type town.

Sixers get: Deng(and his 2 years and $$37million guranteed), Ingram

Lakers get: Wilson Chandler($12.5 mill expiring), Bayless($8.6 mill expiring).
Sixers can't draw star free agents, need to develop you guys and surround them with vet role players. Lakers clear an extra $26 million next year to sign 2 max players and another near max deal. Still have Ball, Hart, and Kuzma for youth.. Could work for both teams.

Which ingram? Not the one 1 your referring to sixer fan. Simmons suck. Embiid is 1 injury away from retirement.

04 Aug 2018 02:54:06
Maybe Kuzma but not Ingram.

04 Aug 2018 07:08:59
Maybe they wait till draft when Deng has one year left.

Lakers window is closing with LBJ. He'll be 34 this year. I think waiting on Ball, Hart, Kuzma, and Ingram for another 2 years to hopefully become complete players is not in the plans, and Deng is the huge road block. And Chandler is a solid vet who can contribute right away. LBJ already opened his school, don't think he wants to " teach" kids on the court full time.

Jvoug, I know how much you love the Sixers. But I don’t see us helping out the Lakers UNLESS, they give up Kuzma and maybe an unprotected 1st Rnd pick. Mainly because of the amount and length of Dieng’s contract.

05 Aug 2018 13:52:36
Sixer4Life, Deng has 2 years on his contract, this year and the following year. That's it. I think Ingram is the perfect young SF with length and tremendous offensive potential. And helping the Lakers for a couple years won't really matter, they aren't getting through Golden State anytime soon. I just feel that any big-time free agents next year still won't sign in Philly, so using the cap space on Deng, in order to get Ingram is worth it.

NY clearing cap space for '19 Free agency

Kings receive: THJ
NY receive: Shumpert (buyout), '20 & '23 2nds

Sixers receive: Lee
NY receive: Bayless (buyout), '19 top 20 protected 1st (converts to 2 2nds).

Lakers receive: Noah, '21 2nd
NY receive: Deng

OKC receive: Thomas (use Melo TPE)
NY receive: '21 2nd

Have cleared an extra 38m in cap space, can jump to 50m (Deng stretch) or 56m (Deng salary dump)

3 knicks trade

Lakers get Noah
Knicks get Deng

Pelicans get Lee Thomas
Knicks get Solomon Ajinca

Knicks get Shumpert
Kings get Hardaway

Dam that’s a good looking 4 win team. Knicks should just trade Porzingis so they don’t have to embarrass themselves more by having him just leave them for nothing.

31 Jul 2018 04:46:43
Lakers receive: Noah, '19 2nd
NY receive: Deng

Swap of bad contracts, Knicks rid themselves of a locker room issue and clear out their C logjam.

Lakers get another C who may be able to help their current C rotation. And get a pick which they can use to help dump Noah after the season.

31 Jul 2018 05:04:22
Whats the pick for lmao.

30 Jul 2018 01:33:39
Lakers receive: Koufos, Labissiere
Kings receive: Deng, '19 Lottery protected 1st, '22 2nd

Kings clear front court minutes, get another mentor and receive some picks.

Lakers clear cap space and receive a back up C for this year and a cheap young back up C for next year.

I think it is a rare win-win, but what are your thoughts?

Lakers shed trade orlando for vucevic. His contract ends next summer but he gives them a one year tryout. Orlando needsminutes for young bigs so they might sell cheap.
