Blazers trade:

Simons (could also be Swanigan or Trent)
2019 lottery protected first

Minny trades


Minny gets some future assets as they continue to head towards the lottery. Portland solidifies their weakest position (wing) .

Swanigan, Harkless, and the 1st is more than fair, but it's tough for me to see the wolves doing that if the butler trade was a trend. Covington has had 4 point games in 30+ minutes this season, I like his D but his streaky shooting is undesirable. Harkless is probably done and you got to pay to offload him but if he isn't and can return healthy I'd prefer him right now if that is possible. They are really similar players. Covington reminds me of a young Harkless in Orlando. Harkless was great before this last knee injury. It's concerning because he's post-op, post-rehab and having swelling. Not good. He looked a little slower and less athletic when he last played too. The '19 1st, Simons and Trent are keepers in my opinion. Aren't really taking up room, cheap, good potential. Seth Curry can go before them but not right now! Swanigan can go. Myers game works for the league right now amazingly enough, but I'd deal him too. Obviously Turner as well, even if his game is working right now!

It’s possible, but I think Minnesota will try to make a run for the playoffs first.



10 Nov 2018 18:02:48
Butler for Covington and Saric.

I didn’t think they’d be able to get that kind of haul for him after this long, but teams get desperate. I like it for both sides.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 18:47:06
I love it for Minnesota. It seems like a big risk for Philly though. First, can they resign Jimmy, 2nd, can Simmons, Embiid and Butler play effectively together and finally, how does adding Butler affect the development of Simmons and Fultz. It feels like a big swing for a team that is that young and has that kind of upside. If it doesn’t work, it could be pretty disastrous. I also think they now need to make a 2nd move to go out and get some more shooting.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 18:48:25
Two OK players for a very good one. Doubt the Wolves can get anything more out of Covington and/ or Saric that the Sixers haven't already bled from them.

3.) 10 Nov 2018 19:06:02
@Bmiller66 That trade actually just happened!

4.) 10 Nov 2018 19:52:04
If I was a minority owner with an intelligent thought I'd be pretty upset with the Wolves for not taking 4 first round picks. Teague is expendable with rose playing well. They could have had a bright future now its wait and see how long this lasts before all three of these guys are possibly somewhere else.

5.) 10 Nov 2018 21:05:18
Guess the word is Butler is committed if all goes well this season.

6.) 10 Nov 2018 21:55:10
4 firsts sounds like a haul, but 4 picks 25-30 really isn’t great. Minny could flip Covington for a first and a young guy (Portland for Harkless, Simons/ Swanigan/ Trent, and a first? ) . They could get a similar haul for Saric. Two nice players that could be great trade assets.

Blazers trade:

CJ McCollum
Caleb Swanigan
Pick 24
2020 lottery protected first

Cavs trade:

Pick 8.

Blazers trade:
Moe Harkless
Pick #20

Knicks trade:
Willy Hernangomez.


1.) 02 Jun 2017 17:58:07
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.



15 Feb 2017 20:20:42
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.


1.) 15 Feb 2017 20:29:57
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.

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
Nick Young.


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.

Even if they have to sacrifice one of their picks from 2018 to unload Gallo, they could easily move him.

Why not just buy him out instead of wasting the pick?

I can't see either team going for this. Trading picks when you're rebuilding is a mistake, trading for JR Smith is also a mistake (especially in a locker room that already is not the best) .

And with the announcement of Fultz having an independent doctor look at his shoulder, any trade value he had left is 100% gone. I was on the side of believing in his potential, but not with that coming out.

I really like the idea of just starting Booker at point and use that stable of wings. I wouldn't move Jackson for Fultz, even if Jackson's stats are down a bit this year.
