offseason trade

CLE: A. Bradley, E. Turner

BOS: B. Haywood, J. Harris, 2nd rd. pick

Cleveland gets an upgrade at backup PG over Dellavadova as well as a replacement at backup SF for Marion who is retiring at the end of the year.

The big piece for Boston is actually Haywood whose $10.5 mil contract for next season is not guaranteed so they could cut him and it wouldn't count against the cap. This would allow them to shed the contracts of Bradley and Turner and pick up an inexpensive nice young shooter in Harris and a 2nd rd. pick just to sweeten the pot a little more.

Cavs lineup:

PG: K. Irving/A. Bradley
SG: I. Shumpert/J.R Smith
SF: L. James/E. Turner
PF: K. Love/T. Thompson
C: T. Mozgov/A. Varejao


1.) Why would the celtics do this when they are trying to get into the playoffs

2.) Avery Bradley is a quality player, and the C's would get a better return than this if they chose to move him.

CLE: N. Cole

MIA: B. Haywood

Cleveland gets an upgrade over Dellavadova at backup PG in Cole, who they could also resign long term after the season because he's a restricted free agent.

Miami would basically be trading for Haywood's unique contract which is totally Non-guaranteed for $10.5 mil next season. Since the Heat are over the cap, the only way to add a high salary player is by trade. Haywood's contract would be attractive to a team like Brooklyn who is looking to shed salary and it could help Miami match salaries for a player like Deron Williams or Brook Lopez. This may not quite make Miami a contender but it would help maintain fan interest and it would be the right thing to do by Wade to at least give contention a puncher's chance during his last few years.


1.) The Heat might have to throw in a future second round pick because of Coles pending FA and like you said the face that Haywood's contract next season is a huge trade chip.

This is a trade for NEXT offseason in 2015.

CLE: M. Gasol(sign and trade), T. Allen

MEM: T. Thompson(sign and trade), B. Haywood, 2015 1st rd. pick(from MEM)

This is assuming the Grizzlies keep regressing and miss the playoffs this season.

This trade works financially because Brendan Haywood has a unique contract that is worth $10.5 mil unguaranteed next season which will be used to match salaries, then he'd be cut with no penalty for Memphis. Let's assume that Gasol signs for 4yr/$60mil and Thompson signs for something like 4yr/$32mil.

The Cavs have to do a sign and trade for Gasol because they would already be over the cap. Gasol would give them a big time defensive anchor at C which is the only real weakness on the roster. Allen would give them a veteren defensive wing to replace Marion if he retires, or just add even more depth if he doesn't.

Memphis obviously would be committing to a rebuild and this trade would give them a big boost to make it a better, quicker process. Memphis would get back their own lottery pick they lost to Cleveland in a previous trade along with a young big. They would let Randolph walk and get rid of the salaries of Gasol and Allen which would leave them with a ton of cap room. Gasol would not fit the rebuild anyway as he would be going into his thirties next year, but he is perfect for Cleveland who wants to win immediately and could expect him to remain a good defensive over the next 4 seasons.

Conley who is 26 and Thompson who is 23 are young enough veterans to be part of the core of the rebuild going forward. If Memphis drafts well and spends its massive amount of cap space wisely on good young vets, they could
be nearing contention in just a few years.

Here is a basic two deep lineup for the Cavs after this trade minus a few tweaks that are bound to be made with rookies and/or vets who are willing to come on the cheap for a chance to win.

2015-2016 Cavs lineup

PG: K. Irving/ M. Dellavadova
SG: D. Waiters/ T. Allen
SF: L. James/ M. Miller
PF: K. Love/ A. Varejao
C : M. Gasol/ A. Varejao


1.) This trade will make cavs pay too much luxury tax and going to have a problem in maintaining love since they have gasol and love and cavs already have a talks about extension once his contract ends and minnesota already have the cavaliers protected 2015 first round draft pick

2.) Grizzlies are going to be good this year. They made the playoffs (and almost beat the thunder while beat up and while ZBo was suspended), even with Gasol missing a good chunk of the season. They added Vince Carter, Jarnell Stokes, and Jordan Adams and should be even better this year

3.) While Love and Lebron might leave after a year, I can see Cavs signing up for Brooklyn Nets level luxury tax to resign them both and M Gasol.

Worst case scenario they sign them all and trade one for picks mid season to avoid tax

2015 offseason trade


CLE: L. Sanders

MIL: B. Haywood, 1st rd. pick(from MEM), 1st rd. pick(from CLE)

Sanders will only have one year left before he is an UFA and Milwaukee will get as much value in return as they can for him. The Memphis pick might even be a lottery pick if the Grizzlies continue to regress and miss the playoffs.
Haywood has a unique contract that is worth 10.5 mil next year totally non-guaranteed which would be used to match salaries. Milwaukee would then just cut him with no penalty.
Cleveland would get the rim protector at Center that they covet. The Cavs would make the picks for Memphis and then deal them to get around the "Stepien rule".

2015-2016 Cavs lineup

PG: K. Irving/ M. Dellavadova
SG: D. Waiters/ J. Harris
SF: L. James/ M. Miller
PF: K. Love/ T. Thompson
C: L. Sanders/ A. Varejao


1.) Sanders contract is longer than that.

2.) Not a bad deal but yea Sanders has like 3 yrs left and Haywood's salary is like 2.5 million so this trade wouldn't work

3.) If you read the post, it states that Haywood's contract is non-guaranteed for 10.5mil NEXT year so YES, the trade would work.

Cavs plan


PHI: J. Jack, 2015 1st rd. pick

CLE: 2015 2nd rd. pick

Cleveland gets to dump the remaining two years of Jack's contract to make room for a max deal. The 2nd rd. pick is in the deal because Cleveland has to take something back. It can come later than 2015 if Philly is afraid it will be too early next year. Philly is in total rebuild mode and is content to be bad for the next two years so a 1st rd. pick is valuable to them. Jack also could be valuable to them as a vet backup PG and mentor to MCW and the rest of the team while not altering the win column too much.

Cleveland signs Lebron to a max deal.
Cleveland signs Ray Allen to vet min.
Lebron gets to go back home, get redemption and secure his legacy for the rest of his career because the Cavs are a young talented team.
Ray Allen wants to play at least one more year and has said that he will follow Lebron wherever he goes to try to win a third ring.


MIL: D. Waiters, T. Thompson

CLE: L. Sanders

Cleveland gets a rim protector at Center. Milwaukee's front office seems to have soured on Sanders and may be willing to trade him for the right deal, especially considering that they seem to be in total rebuild mode. Thompson and especially Waiters would seem to be good fits with Parker.

Anthony Bennett was hurt all last offseason and regular season and was never able to get into shape or work on his game last year but he is finally healthy and is reportedly in tremendous shape and should be a solid stretch four for a long time in the league. Even if he's not playing very well, Varejao is always an option at PF but would be better coming off the bench at both PF and C. Cleveland can sign an old vet or an undrafted rookie for the 3rd PG spot.

Cavs lineup:

PG: K. Irving/ M. Dellavadova/ FA
SG: A. Wiggins/ R. Allen/ S. Karasev
SF: L. James/ J. Harris/ S. Karasev
PF: A. Bennett/ A. Varejao/ D. Powell
C: L. Sanders/ A. Varejao/ T. Zeller

Dominant offensive and defensive team. 10 year dynasty!


1.) Keep dreaming cav fans

2.) Love the Milwaukee trade

3.) Sixers don't want your draft pick if your getting a good player by dumping jacks crappy contract. I'd need waiter and/ or Bennett to do the deal with jack.

I'm a Cavs fan and I'll gladly take Durant. Too bad this is ridiculous.

Jordan's not signing in Minne

Shump is restricted and the Cavs will match any offer to keep him. They didn't make that trade just to let him walk after the season and money is no object for Dan Gilbert so that's not an issue.

Cavs want to keep T. Thompson and Haywood's contract(10 mil nonguaranteed) is very valuable next offseason in a trade. How would this benefit the cavs??

Cleveland is not trading for Hibbert. Get off it!

That's unfortunate.
