CELTICS - O. Porter Jr, Oubre Jr
WIZARDS - Millsap, Rosier, Beasley
NUGGETS - Hayward

CELTICS - Porter helps an already robust defense and Oubre becomes a nice piece off the bench. Porter Jr's contract is high but arguably looks better than Haywards with his rough start.

WIZARDS - Millsap is still a useful piece and his contract has a team option for next year. This wouldn't be simply a salary dump though as the Wizards would also get a potential Wall replacement in Rozier. They'd need to have a taker for Wall (wink/ wink Phoenix) . Beasley was buried a bit in Denver but he's still on his rookie deal and could blossom with a new start. So Wizards get future salary relief, potential cheaper Wall replacement, and a flyer on a young dude.

NUGGETS - Obviously Denver would be betting that Hayward would do better in a different environment and they do have a need at SF even with a healthy Barton. Lyles, Plumlee, and Hernangomez can soak up Millsap's minutes. Denver has shown they want to be in the mix for big name stars (ie. rumors regarding potential Butler, George, and Love trades) but have yet to be able to attract any via free agency - Millsap being the exception. Trading is the only way they get it done. However, with Denver currently sitting at #1 in the west, hard to see them messing with the sauce right now. A fun idea nonetheless.

I don't think the nuggets need a SF with a healthy Barton that costs 31mil. Millsap is playing great for them, and will re-sign for less likely. Celtics should trade Hayward after the season. Hopefully he puts his game back together by then. Consistently.

2.) 03 Dec 2018 16:56:55
The two players Boston gives up are both better than either player it gets in return. Hard no from Ainge on this one.

Agree with Supercollider this time.

Bucks - Plumlee, Bembry
Nuggets - Dellavadova, Maker
Hawks - Faried (exp), Arthur (exp), 2019 Denver 1st

Bucks get a better starting Center.

Nuggets shed a lot of cap space, get a veteran backup PG, and take a flyer on Maker.

Hawks get a first and expirings for the low price of Bembry.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 23:56:37
The bucks Just signed Lopez so it's not a better starting center and they give up maker.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 12:45:37
Lmao 😂 😂.

Wizards - Millsap, Beasley, 2019 2nd
Nuggets - Porter Jr.

Wizards do this because porter + Beal + wall gets super expensive starting next year and millsap has a team option for next year. The wizards could decline and save 30 mil. They also get a prospect and a pick to boot. Millsap also keeps them competitive next year.

Nuggets do this because they have weakness at sf, porter adds D, and he fits more with their timeline than millsap. They'd also have to be confident with lyles starting at PF. Danger for denver is the length of porter jrs deal. In 20/21 his player option year worth 28.5 mil, there may be a better Porter Jr playing his position in Denver still on his rookie deal, lol.


1.) 11 Jul 2018 14:36:40
The Wizards would pass. Porter's big deal has him super underrated at this point. The guy is a really good 2 way player. He's an elite 3 and d player that can create and finish when given the chance. Plus, he's still 24. He makes less than Millsapp and had a much better year. Plus, the Wizards have done well in improving their bench this off season. It should be pretty solid this year. They don't really need Beasley. Lawson, Satoransky, Rivers, Brown, Oubre, Green, and Mahimi is a pretty solid bench with the only place you could possibly want to upgrade being the center spot. Mahimi isn't a guy you would ever want to have in the starting lineup and Howard has his risks.

2.) 11 Jul 2018 17:15:22
The nuggets have a mystery player in mpj. Won't need a guy like porter if mpj develops injury free.

3.) 11 Jul 2018 17:39:12
I would like to see the Bucks S and T J. Parker to Wash. for O. Porter. That would give them
B. Lopez
Giannis A.
O. Porter
K. Middleton (Moving Middleton back to SG)
E. Bledsoe.


4.) 11 Jul 2018 18:56:35
Can't imagine parker salary within league trading rules of porters 25 mil.

Bulls - Plumlee, Arthur (exp), Beasley, 2019 2nd
Nuggets - R. Lopez (exp), Payne (exp)

Bulls take on salary but get a pick and a prospect in Beasley. Plumlee also fits in nicely.

Nuggets dump salary and get off of that extra year of Plumlee's contract. In the short term, Lopez backs up Jokic and Payne subs for Murray.


1.) 09 Jul 2018 02:46:26
From a bulls perspective this is a good play. Nuggets were already willing to go over the cap and plumlee fits with jokic nicely.

Parker sign trade ideas...
Lets pretend he signs for 3 years 56 mil and the wolves don't want him around due to attitude/injuries.

Mil - Plumlee, Beasley, 2019 lottery protected 1st
Den - Parker

MIl - Carroll, Dinwiddie
Brooklyn - Parker

Mil - T. Young, Leaf or Sabonis
Indiana - Parker

MIl - Harkless, Collins
Portland - Parker


1.) 08 Jul 2018 18:21:08
*Bucks not wolves.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 18:30:37
jabari is not getting that kind of payday, sorry. but the portland trade is decent.

3.) 08 Jul 2018 19:20:34
MIL can't take more than 10-11 mil back from a Parker s/ t.

4.) 08 Jul 2018 19:43:18
Look the bucks should keep him and take the risk cause nobody is coming to the bucks via draft or free agency the talent of Parker anytimesoon.

5.) 08 Jul 2018 19:44:48
Nobody on this list had anywhere near the talent parker has.

6.) 08 Jul 2018 23:17:14
The Bucks seem to have Parker in a spot where they can strong arm him into a pretty favorable deal. Can he really risk signing a 1 year deal. If they can get him on something 3 years at 12 million per and get a 1 year option at the end, it seems worth it to take the risk on him. Even if the fit with Giannis isn't great as long as he proves he can be healthy, he could be the key to getting a star that can keep Giannis healthy. Your going to get next to nothing for him in a sign and trade. It'd be to easy to just throw an 1 or 2 year deal above what the Bucks are willing to pay him, if someone like Sacramento wanted him bad enough.

7.) 09 Jul 2018 00:02:33
Dona - I’d be surprised if Parker doesn’t get at least that. At least 2 teams out there think Lavine is worth 19.5 per over 4 years. I’d say Parker is worth at least 18. Parker > Lavine IMO. Young dudes who can score get paid regardless of defense and injury concerns.

8.) 09 Jul 2018 18:17:15
I wouldn't give up Zach Collins for Parker.

LINsane in the membrane...

Denver Nuggets - SF Carroll, PG Lin
Brooklyn Nets - C Plumlee, PF Faried

Caveat: Denver would only do this if they were able to move on from Chandler either by S&T or he declines his player option (unlikely). This trade would fill the hole at SF, give the Nuggets a decent backup to Murray at PG in Lin (assuming he's healthy), and shed Faried who can't break the lineup in Denver at PF. They would need a backup center but one can be found in the first round at 14 (shoutout to Robert Williams and Michell Robinson) or in free agency.

Plumlee is actually quite good and would be the starter in Brooklyn over Moz. He doesn't fit next to Jokic and he needs more minutes than DEN can provide at backup C. Faried may no longer be a starter but he can still hustle and get rebounds off the bench. Denver could throw in a second if the Nets wanted more draft capital but I don't think it'd be necessary.

Thoughts? It's the rare SF + PG for C + PF trade that seems to work.


1.) 20 May 2018 02:43:49
I can't imagine Brooklyn would want to take on Plumlee's salary. He's overpayed and to old to be a part of a rebuild. Carroll and Lin are both on expirings. They should be turn both of those guys in to young assets.

2.) 20 May 2018 16:50:39
Nets dealt plumlee to blazers before blazers dealt him to nuggets. He plays well next to jokic, and plumlee isn't expiring like Carroll and lin. Where's the compensation for nets? Faried can rebound and dunk. Lin and Carroll bring more to the table for the nets needs. Mozgov didn't start anyway, or play in most of the nets games. Played in 44 started 13. Many of those games were 3-4 minute outings.

Whoa, I was close on this. Nuggets did trade Arthur + Faried + 1st to Brooklyn tonight.

Hmm, that's interesting. I could see it actually. Would lead to a huge logjam at SF in NY though. Hill, Moore, Knox, Thomas. What about subbing Ajinca (exp) for Moore with NY throwing in a second.

Don't think cavs can absorb the contract.

I could see Arthur + 2 2nds for cash considerations to Brooklyn, Sac, or Altlanta (since they all have the cap space) . I'd rather see Arthur go along with Faried and 2019 1st to save even more money for Denver.

Ie. Denver/ Atl
Atl - Faried + Arthur + 1st
Denver - Bembry

Denver/ Sac
Sac - Faried + Arthur + 1st
Denver - Temple, Labissiere

Denver/ Brooklyn
Brooklyn - Faried + Arthur + 1st (or preferably 2 2nds since Brooklyn is only absorbing 8 mil)
Denver - Lin.

Nice trade idea man. Cavs get a good prospect and a couple future picks to rebuild and the wiz could take the east. That would be a fun team to watch.
