This is a crazy one but could benefit both teams.

Orl get Phi and Lal 1st rounders 2018

Phi get 6th pick
Draft Jackson and Monk

Orl tank next year with 3 1st rounders that's 3 chances at landing a top talent like Porter etc and hope that the Sixers and Lakers don't improve that much.

Phi get Monk and build a complete team of
Simmons, Monk, Jackson, Saric, Embiid.
With them and the lakers landing top picks they should be better so the 1st's should be later and they risk two unknown first rounders for the 6th which gets them a decent player in a loaded draft.

Its definitely a roll of the dice for the 76ers that I think may be worth it. Jackson is a tremendous talent they'd be foolish to pass on while Monk would be a great fit as a young perimeter threat. 76ers did go on a bit of a streak before Embiid got shut down so maybe it isn't unrealistic to expect them to compete for a playoff spot especially with Pacers and Bulls both potentially moving their stars. With Lakers bringing Magic aboard they seem poised to make a moves to try and compete and even if they don't that young team got off to a hot start last season so maybe being a year older and adding a talent like Ball they are able to sustain it longer. Additionally, the 2018 draft class is reportedly stocked with bigs so its questionable if they'd be able to find a player that would fit their team well (certainly none as well as Monk) . Only downside is that although Simmons, Monk, Jackson, Saric and Embiid would be a scary lineup it would be one that would be nearly impossible to sustain past their rookie deals with all being so close in age and likely to command sizeable contracts in RFA (a-la Thunder with Durant, Westbrook, Harden and Ibaka) .

For Orlando its a gamble as well. I project Tatum and Fox will be gone by #6 so they are looking at Issac, Monk and Smith. I don't see any of them being major difference makers for the Magic so maybe its worth getting what may still be two lotto picks (albeit later lotto picks) to add with their pick (which will likely be top 5) to revamp that roster or give them decent chips to play with.


2.) 19 May 2017 22:22:07
The Magic have had bad luck in the draft Falling nearly every year missing out on Embiid and Porzingis who were taken pick before theirs. They have no future First rounders except their own and with no star or draw for decent free agents it's probs best to put themselves in the best position to land a young Star otherwise they will be at best a team fighting for the 8th seed.

The contracts will be close regardless if they draft two players or one in this lottery but they got a few years to sort that out they have so many assets in 2nd rounders and draft and stash players etc that they can afford to get flexible later o and trade pieces for cheaper contracts, picks or cap space etc.

Ballsy, but I like it for both teams Orlando aren't getting what they need at 6 and that Philly lineup could grow into something special.

Phi and Sac

Phi get 5th and 10th pick
Draft: Monk and Ntilikina

Sac get 3rd pick
Draft: Jackson

Phi do it as Monk seems the best fit in my opinions Simmons and Embiid are going to draw so much attention giving Monk space to work and having a 6'10 pg will compensate for Monks lack of size and other weaknesses. Ntilikina gives them options at pg in the future but he can develop off the bench for now and he has a good jumper which look good all the way out to the 3 giving them more floor spreading.

Sac get Jackson whose two way game could fit nicely between two shooters in Heild and Skal, His perimeter defence will help complement WCS rim protection and will hopefully be a step in the right direction for them.

If I am Sacramento, I pass. I don't think Jackson is good enough to offset them not getting a PG in the draft and another good prospect.


2.) 17 May 2017 16:01:41
If I'm Sacramento, I keep 5 and 10, and take whoever is left from Jackson, Tatum and Fox. I assume Fultz and Ball are 1-2 at this point. Then, at 10, they might have a Pg available in Ntilikina or Smith if they had previously taken a SF, or they can go for someone like Issaac, Monk or Markkanen. The draft is deep enough that two top ten picks are more valuable than a top 3 guy. Especially in Sacramento's situation.


3.) 17 May 2017 16:02:52
Sacramento needs a lot of help. They're better off with 2 picks.

Orl & Dal
I think the top 10 goes like this.

Bos- Fultz
Lal- Ball
Phi- Jackson or Tatum
Pho- Jackson or Tatum
Sac- Issac
Orl-Fox
Min- Markkanen
Nyk- Monk
Dal- Smith Jr
Sac- Ntilikina

Orl get 9th pick and 2018 pick top 5 protected.
Draft: Smith Jr

Dal get 6th pick
Draft: Markkanen

Orl do it to add a Pg of the future if he can stay healthy and future pick as they need to get assets after 5 years of bad luck in the draft their still no closer to getting their star.

Dal have been high on Markkanen due to the ideal fit next to Noel and the learning from Dirk but I'd say with Sac taken 5th they will likely take a forward as it's likely the 10th pick will be a guard and that limits Min options as everyone had them taking Issac and with him off the board Markkanen seems the best fit so by doing this trade they get their guy.

I don't like the value for Dallas especially when many other teams (maybe not Dallas) have Zach Collins, who can also be a stretch big, higher than Markkanen. Regardless I don't think Ferrel is the long term answer for them at pg so Mavs are probably better off getting Smith (Knicks may take him tho) as point guard is a much more important position than pf. They could then try and nab someone like Nikola Mirotic in RFA.

Orl and Bos

Orl get Johnson exp, Zizic and the rights to switch their pick with brooklyns if that's possible
Bos get Vucevic

Orl do it to continue their build and get a top pg hopefully get some cap flexibility and a young player
Bos get a player that fills theirs needs on a cheap contract and while they get a lesser pick brooklyns pick lands them a pg where as the Magic pick looks around 4-5 unless it jumps and they could get someone like Jackson at sg/ sf or Issac at sf/ pf this is if they can't land a star at the deadline with the Cavs struggling bows the time to go all in.

In Boston gives up that Brooklyn pick (which will be no worse than 3rd overall and has a shot at being No. 1), it will be for a lot more than Vucevic. And the Celtics would throw in Zizic and Johnson? Really?
If the ping pong balls go against the Celtics (yet again) and Boston winds up with No. 3 overall and Orlando has No. 4, Boston might swap those picks and take Vucevic in the deal. But that's about it.


2.) 02 Feb 2017 13:36:39
Boston can't "trade the Brooklyn pick. " because they don't own it outright. They have the option to swap picks with Brooklyn. So any deal involving that pick would mean they traded their own pick, putting them out of the first round altogether. They may do that, but certainly not for Vucevic.


3.) 02 Feb 2017 14:37:06
To the Boston fans look at it from Orl point Johnson is on expiring so it's not going to be straight up for Vucevic who is a underrated player he's a good offensive player and has made improvements on defence obviously he has his limitations but he fills the needs of bostons current weaknesses of rebounding and some post scoring. Zizic is added as the main piece of attraction as if the Magic get a higher pick in the lottery then Brooklyn they would walk away with nothing for Vucevic. I did say if they can't make a trade for a star they need to make a change if they wanna take advantage of the Cavs while their struggling.


4.) 02 Feb 2017 14:45:22
Supercollider you kidding Johnson is a bencher I'd take Vucevic over him A starting Center who can average a Double double and I checked the contracts Vucevic is on a cheaper contract then Johnson. If no deal for Butler goes through I'd be interested.


5.) 02 Feb 2017 16:28:41
Nothing but Net. Johnson's contract is expiring, and the Celtics want cap flexibility. Johnson starts most games for the Celtics and has playing well, they wouldn't trade Brooklyn pick and Ante Zizic who has looked very good for Vucevic.

Hey TB, should you be focusing on Sundays game and be preparing to squeeze the crap out of Goodells hand twice with a big smile. One for the SB MVP and the other because Robert Kraft elected to have you be presented the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Den and Orl

Den get 11th pick

Orl get get 15th and 20th pick

Den get best player available with their pick and then fill a need say adding a shooter with Orl pick

Orl take skal or thon at 15 as they can develops them off the bench and then take Baldwin at 20 who could rotate between alongside Oladipo and Payton keeping the defence strong and adding a strong outside shooter to bring balance.

This a trade idea on Bleacher Report, I'm a Magic fan but I look at things realistically while I think Monk is a perfect fit and Ross is a young vet on an ok contract I think Sixers would want more for a star potential 3rd pick in Jackson. Getting the 2nd rounder when they already have loads won't cut it so maybe a future asset as theirs not much on Magic's roster they want.
Sixers could trade down and having a guy like Monk could be like what Ray Allen was like for Boston. If they did I think they could have a bidding war between Orl, Pho, Nyk, Sac, Dal etc.

So Magic give up
Ross, 33rd pick
For
Deng, Mcw and 38th pick

They add a older player on a bad contract a pg with very similar flaws to Payton and a lesser 2nd rounder. Dillusional lakers fan strikes again.

I'm a Magic fan and I can't see this happening. Sixers trading down for Monk is a good idea as he can spread the floor, get hot, create his own shot, defend pg's, he can get to the basket and is fairly athletic which would fit well next to Simmons who will run the offence and he can cover his weaknesses by matching up against big sg's.
But Biyombo is an overpaid rim protector and two seconds when Sixers already have loads of 2nds.

Sixers would probably go for the 6th pick and a future 1st for the 3rd pick as Magic aren't projected to get better anytime soon so that would be a lottery pick and an asset for their future to trade or build with.
