Blazers trade:
Moe Harkless
Pick #20

Knicks trade:
Willy Hernangomez.

Don't think Hernangomez is worth this much and although Blazers need cap relief Harkless' contract isn't that bad (also Blazers don't really need a center) .


2.) 02 Jun 2017 18:32:17
The blazers desperately need a backup center Jaw.

I do agree it's a bit of an overpay by Portland, but it does cut salary and bring a decent young player back. If they could then unload Meyers Leonard, they'd be out of luxury tax for one year.


3.) 03 Jun 2017 00:00:10
Problem is that Harkless is not a true salary dump. His salary is moderate and at 24 years old he has big upside value. Portland needs to dump Turner, Leonard, and Crabbe in that order of horrible value contracts. Portland needs an impact 3/ 4 before they need a back up center. This deal doesn't address either.

Blazers receive Drummond

Pistons receive McCollum, Stauskas, and Portland's 2017 first (top 5 protected)

76ers receive Crabbe and Memphis 2017 first (from Portland)

Blazers get a star big.
Detroit gets a solid return for Drummond. McCollum can play beside Jackson, or they can look to move Jackson.
Phili gets a shooter that they need and a first for basically nothing but the use of cap room.

How does Philly get Crabbe and a 1st rd pick for Stauskus?


2.) 15 Feb 2017 20:35:53
It's basically a salary dump by Portland NewLakerDynasty. With McCollum's extension, the contracts are hard to line up. He counts as 20 million to Detroit, but only 3 million for Portland.

You could certainly take the first out and I think it would be fair as well, I just didn't want to hear TreGib complain about crabbe again.


3.) 15 Feb 2017 21:11:15
Haha, DET agrees to this in record setting speed.


4.) 15 Feb 2017 22:53:13
I went back and forth on the picks quite a bit. Maybe an overpay for Portland, but they desperately need a real big.

Certainly a lot of variation you could do. Crabbe could be replaced with Meyers Leonard and Ezeli (who is non-guaranteed next year) . I might prefer that, because losing McCollum and Crabbe leaves a big hole in portlands wing shooting.


5.) 15 Feb 2017 23:38:26
Confused on how philly get crabbe and a first? Did you forget to include okafor to pistons?


6.) 15 Feb 2017 23:39:29
Philly doesn't need a shooter as bad as people think. 76ers have a couple good shooting forwards.


7.) 16 Feb 2017 01:12:37
Honestly I don't see Portland giving up McCollum and 1st's for a big until they see what they have in Nurkic. Also I hate seeing Crabbe to Philly. I'd rather stick with Stauskas. He's just as productive and cheaper. Crabbe is a bench player making starter money. That just handcuff's the Philly rebuild. Hate this trade.

Blazers trade:

Mo Harkless
Ed Davis
Festus Ezeli
Portland's 2017 first, top 5 protected

Nets trade:

Brook Lopez
Joe Harris
Quincy Acy
(Or replace those two for someone else wth a small contract)

Bmiller66

1.) 16 Jan 2017 13:53:05
Nets don't get enough. Someone has to give up at least one quality young asset. Harkless is simply not enough. And the first too late to be impactful.

Damian Lillard for Paul George

It wouldn't happen, teams don't swap stars often, but there's some sense there. Portland balances their roster. Indy moves a star that's getting a bit disgruntled for one locked in a bit longer.

Bmiller66

1.) 02 Jan 2017 20:12:25
No there's no sense, Portland wouldn't have a point guard.


2.) 02 Jan 2017 20:37:31
McCollum is a point guard. He's started there every game Lillard has missed the last two years. Just because he starts at SG doesn't mean he's not a more natural point.


3.) 03 Jan 2017 01:05:50
Value wise okay I can see it. But why on earth would that happen.

Nba-gmaster made me think of this question as I'm thinking about how good NY or Cleveland can be:

If you have a young talented team that you want to develop, with some recent lottery picks, who is the person you want on that roster the least?

Possible options:
JR Smith
Melo
Kanter
Nick Young.

Bmiller66

1.) 17 Sep 2018 18:36:09
For me it’s Melo and not close. I think young players actually look up to Melo and see him as a role model. On a young team he would still be looked at as a leader and that’s not exactly a guy you want to lead. He isn’t as bad and influence as Smith or Young, but I don’t see guys looking Young or Smith for leadership or guidance. I think they’re more cautionary tales of players that had a ton of talent and were never more than mediocre or slightly above average players. Plus, their play styles aren’t as detrimental to the team. They spread the floor and do take some bad shots, but neither dominates the ball. I don’t think Kanter is really a bad influence around the team. He’s just a black hole that can slow down pacing and hurt player growth on the court. Melo does that as well and probably worse since he actually gets the ball on the perimeter.

Not close to enough for Butler. Ibaka is a negative contract at this point. I think Toronto would have to include OG in any trade, maybe Wright as well.

Also, feels like Phoenix is getting a bad deal too. Jones is a below average backup PG. Warren is a good wing on a reasonable deal. And Phoenix gives up a pick? Why?

Agreed with Warlock. Hard to see Phili getting Butler without letting go of Covington along with one of Smith or Saric.

Paul George said he would only sign in LA as well. Then he signed in Oklahoma. Sometimes taking a risk is worth it for an all star caliber player.

I can't see Minny taking a deal that doesn't include one of NY's young players.

In all fairness, the trade machine doesn't factor in potential or contracts. Collins has pretty decent value even if he doesn't have the +wins on the trade machine.

That said, I think both teams pass. I can't see Portland giving up Collins for an expiring contract. And I doubt Minny values Collins enough to make him the centerpiece of the deal.
