NY send: THJ, Lee
Receive: Randolph, '20 2nd (Rap)
Clear a lot of cap-space for next year, and improve this year's pick.

Rap send: Ibaka, '20 & '21 2nd
Receive: Wiggins
Upgrade potential, and can hide Wiggins on D.

Twolves send: Wiggins, '20 2nd
Receive THJ, Lee
Get rid of Wiggins overpaid contract and get some solid wings who Butler will likely prefer to play with.

Kings send: Randolph
Receive: Ibaka, '20 (Twolves) & '21 (Rap) 2nds
Get some picks for using their cap space, Ibaka can be traded as a large expiring at the end of the year.


1.) 21 Aug 2018 11:50:31
It's going to cost more than that for Raps to unload Ibaka's deal.

2.) 21 Aug 2018 12:22:17
Raptors going for title for title you keep ibaka over wiggens, when you already have top 3 sf.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 17:15:29
Yeah, agree with Shizzee. Toronto has a ton of depth on the wing and are probably 1 big short of where they want t be.
Also, Ibaka can give you positive minutes in playoff games and is willing to be a 3rd or 4th option. Wiggins has shown the ability or willingness to do either at this point. Unless you’re a young team, why take a chance on the light coming on for Wiggins? In 4 years, he hasn’t shown many glimpses that he is willing to do the things that will win games. He hasn’t been willing to get his hands dirty or play unselfish basketball and he’s not good enough offensively for that to be ok.



21 Aug 2018 06:00:04
Trade deadline deal if Twolves out of playoff race, and Butler says he's gone no matter what:

Minny send: Butler, '21 & '23 worse 1st
Receive: Lee, Roberson, Ferguson,'21 & '23 better 1st
Get some solid wings to replace some of what Butler brought, also get a prospect and possibility to move up in 2 drafts.

NY send: Lee
Receive: Singler (Exp), TLC, '20 2nd
Clear cap space and get a cheap prospect and future pick.

OKC send: Roberson, Singler, Ferguson, TLC, '21 & '23 better 1st, '20 2nd
Receive: Butler

PG: Westbrook, Schroder
SG: Butler, Felton
SF: PG, Abrines
PF: Grant, Patterson
C: Adams, Noel


1.) 21 Aug 2018 13:58:21
As a thunder fan I would love the addition of Butler, but OKC is losing to many young assets for possibly just half a season. If they could make it happen by switching TLC with Abrines or something then I say do it, but don't give up Ferguson and TLC. And I'm not sure if T-wolves take it. Thibs does like defense so Roberson would be a good fit for him, but those picks thunder are guaranteed Westbrook, George, and Adams through 2021 so unless something changes the Wolves would b in the same spot without switching 2021 pick, but depending on what happens after 2021 the 2023 could help. I do think the Knicks would do that, but why are the Knicks even involved? The T-Wolves would prob rather TLC and the 2nd over Lee I don't see why they have to be involved unless it is a salary thing.



20 Aug 2018 04:09:41
Cha receive: Ibaka
Cut 6m in salary and upgrade their PF/C spot.

Rap receive: MKG and Williams
Get a good wing defender and a solid stretch-4


1.) 20 Aug 2018 11:45:31
Solid stretch 4? Good defender? Both are overpaid and underachieving.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 12:18:24
Yep in this deal I'll take 1 overpaid and underachieving player over 2 on my roster.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 15:19:13
Hornets already overstocked with mediocre bigs.



20 Aug 2018 03:52:33
At the trade deadline:

Cavs send: Love
Spurs send: Gasol, White, better of Spurs / Raps '19 1st

Cavs clear Love's contract and get a 1st.
Spurs upgrade their roster. Love is an upgrade on defence compared with Gasol and I think that he and Aldridge would be able to co-exist on the court.


1.) 20 Aug 2018 05:17:44
I don't see any teams interested in love for 30 mil.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 08:05:17
I'm not sure LMA- Love would be a good combo.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 11:46:13
No rim proctectionat all with love/ aldridge.

4.) 20 Aug 2018 12:25:57
Get run out of the building with those two on the floor at the same time.

5.) 20 Aug 2018 15:52:17
I think Aldridge and Love are both underrated defenders. I don't think there would be huge issues defensively with them together. It's not like Pau is some lock down defender at 87 years old.

And offensively, those two with Derozan would be pretty great. Both can work in the paint and stretch the floor for each other. Both are great in the pick and roll/ pop and on the weak side.

A Derozan/ Love/ Aldridge trio can't beat GS, and doesn't match up at all against them. But they could be in the running for the second best team in the NBA. If one of Durant/ Klay/ Steph goes down with injury, I think that SA team could compete with them.

Picking up a great third option for very little seems like a perfect fit and option for a team with no interest in rebuilding.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 17:01:50
No problem at all if you don't play them together at the same time. Second you do other team goes small, and the fast break begins. Love and Aldridge are slugs getting up and down the floor. Aldridge a little better than love. It is real and something to plan for if you think love and Aldridge play at the same time.

7.) 20 Aug 2018 17:09:19
Nobody said they would have defensive issues that I see in the above posts. I said they are slow and will get run to death with love and Aldridge in the game. Different issues if that was a shot over my bow.

8.) 20 Aug 2018 19:35:23
Shiller said "no rim protection". While that's technically true, I think that defensively, they'd be fine without a true shot blocking rim protector.

Aldridge isn't slow. He's decent getting out on the break and defending the break from what I've seen (though he may have slowed a bit since he left Portland) . Love isn't the most athletic, but he's not Mozgov slow.

It's probably not a perfect pairing in today's NBA, but you could do a lot worse than two similar all star caliber players.

9.) 20 Aug 2018 20:56:36
Bmiller- both are death in puck and roll defense. If others cheat to help other team gets wide open 3s, if not they get layups or fouls. Spurs don't need Love. They won how many games without Kawhi and add DeRozan. I think they win 50 games as constructed.

10.) 21 Aug 2018 04:07:43
Spurs can't do this deal because salaries don't match. If you include Patty Mills instead of White the deal works.

I don't see why Cavs do this deal. They just signed Love to an extension. Why would they want to trade him unless they get back another star.



16 Aug 2018 22:17:56
4 team Whiteside trade:

Bucks send: Snell
Receive: Jr Smith
Smith is an upgrade in the short term, and can be sold as a large expiring or waived to create additional cap space next offseason.

Heat send: Whiteside
Receive: TT, Ajinca (waive), '19 & 2x '21 2nds
Get a cheaper backup C who will be less of a headache, also get some 2nds to restock their tradable assets. This move is all about ushering in the era of Bam.

Pels send: Ajinca, '19 & '21 2nds
Receive: Korver
Add some much needed shooting and dump an unused C.

Cavs send: TT, Korver, Smith, '21 2nd
Receive: Whiteside, Snell
Upgrade a C and is a good fit next to Love. Also get a younger prospect to groom into their next 3&D wing


1.) 17 Aug 2018 12:51:17
Yeah Smith is not an upgrade.

2.) 17 Aug 2018 14:19:12
I believe the Bucks would pass on J. R. Smith. As stated Not an upgrade, But more of a Downgrade, compared to Snell. On and off the court, And contract wise.

3.) 18 Aug 2018 01:42:12
Bigwuz- jr smith is only an upgrade over noah, parsons, maybe a few others.

4.) 19 Aug 2018 11:54:58
Torque would you do lebron for Middleton and Bledsoe?

Building Celtics super team:

Hawks send: '23 2nd that won't convey
Receive: Dieng, Ojeleye, '20 2nd (Bos)

Wolves send: Butler, Dieng
Receive: Hayward, Rozier

Spurs send: Leonard
Receive: Morris, Brown, Yabusele, 19 1st (Bos)

Celtics send: Hayward, Morris, Brown, Rozier, Ojeleye, Yabusele, '19 1st, '20 2nd

Irving, Butler, Leonard, Tatum, Horford would be a great starting 5 for years to come.

Next off season; If Irving, Butler, Leonard agree to resign. Throw Horford + 4 1sts at the Pels for Davis


1.) 12 Jul 2018 09:35:05
Would be a great team I just think with the Celtics team last year add Kyrie and Hayward healthy improving young talent like Tatum, Brown, and the Emergence of Scary terry it’s right there.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 05:41:49
How could KI KL JB and AH be a great starting 5 if you trade Horford the following year. All 4 w/ AD instead of AH will be over the Luxury Tax not counting the remaining 9 players on the bench if they all resigned.



12 Jul 2018 00:43:33
OKC receive: Bazemore
Hawks receive: Melo (Buyout), '19 & '20 seconds

Hawks get a couple of seconds and get rid of the final year of Bazemore's contract.
OKC receive a serviceable 3&D wing and save up to 50m in salary and tax this year.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 05:56:57
If melo is 90 mil with taxes then bazemore will have a similar effect for not much production.



05 Apr 2018 00:47:41
If Lebron goes to Philly.

Spurs receive: Fultz, Saric, Bayless, Pick 24, 37 & 39, 1st '19

Sixers receive: Leonard

Simmons, RoCo, Leonard, James, Embiid

Spurs get a good haul for a player who appears to not play there and only has a year left.

Sixers complete the process and are still left with Pick 10 (Maybe higher)and future picks to flesh out the roster.



1.) 05 Apr 2018 06:25:11
Leonard, and James in PHI would be a super team no Doubt. Depends on what PHI pays. The above isn't good enough in my opinion, (Bayless is no prize) although the Spurs have been genius drafters in the past. The place that gets him, and would trade for him will have the money to pay, and the best package to offer the Spurs. If has-been Robinson has good info.



31 Jan 2018 02:06:28
Lakers out: Clarkson
In: Frye, 2 Cavs future 2nds, McRoberts

Mavs out: Noel, Barnes, McRoberts
In: Clarkson, Thompson, Smith or Shumpert, Cavs 2018 1st, Future Cavs 2nd

Cavs out: Thompson, Smith or Shumpert, Frye, 2018 1st, 3 future 2nds
In: Barnes, Noel

Lakers get cap space and two seconds

Mavs get rid of Barnes' max contract for a young Pg/sg and picks

Cavs get a line up of Wade/IT, Crowder, Barnes, Lebron, Love, which can hang with GSW death like up on both ends

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.

Major cap and spacing issues for the Thunder if this goes through. For the Pistons paying two non-shooting PGs a combined 35m/ y is a daunting prospect.
