Wolves: Hollins- Jefferson+ Crabbe

Nets: J Butler

Wolves only do this, if Butler indicates he don't want to resign with the Wolves and other teams, hesitate, because Butler don't want to sign with them.
The Wolves get Hollins-Jefferson 's birth rights and i think they can resign him for a reasonable price




19 Aug 2018 10:50:17
Spurs: M Gasol

LA: M Conley

Memphis: Deng+Ball+ Mills+ R Gay+ 1rnd pick Toronto


1.) 19 Aug 2018 13:56:33
Grizzhad Rudy when he was young and still athletic and traded him. ballis trash. lakers would have to add a first round pick and another player like kuz or ingram.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 14:23:18
Comme on, Ball is going to be good and LA takes a risk, Conley is already 31 and it's a big contract.

3.) 19 Aug 2018 14:45:49
Marc Gasol to LA makes more sense for them.

4.) 19 Aug 2018 14:46:01
The Lakers don't want to fill up a big salary slot with Conley. They have bigger targets. It's questionable if he's even positive value on that deal.

5.) 19 Aug 2018 15:55:49
Verdict out on conley, haven't seen him play. Ball too since he's had surgery. If the Griz are trying to make the postseason this isn't the way.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 11:51:13
Grizzgive up two starters for ball ( average to trash), deng no value and a low first rounder?



18 Aug 2018 10:22:54
What trade makes sense and should happen?

1) LA Lakers
Butler for Ingram+ 1rnd pick + deng

Butler for J Brown+ Smart

3) Philly
Butler for Fultz+ W Chandler

Butler for Harris and Gilgeous alexander


1.) 18 Aug 2018 11:24:53
The Laker trade really looks promising, since Butler wants to win now. but Minnesota will try to refuse to take Deng.

Boston will want a pick included with Butler

Philly is HIGH on Fultz and would require a pick in case Butler Opts our after next season. (Like Boston)

The Clippers would be shorthanded at SF if they gave up Harris.

If I was Philly, I would do the Fultz but I wouldn’t offer Chandler, I would give Minnesota a 2nd Rnd pick instead.

But these are some very good trade scenarios. Trades that I think Minnesota would take.

2.) 18 Aug 2018 11:29:27
1. Not enough for Butler
2. Too much for Butler
3. Not enough for Butler
4. Not enough for Butler.

3.) 18 Aug 2018 13:28:55
Good one supercollider. We keep forgetting Brown is considered better than Lebron at this point.

4.) 18 Aug 2018 14:14:48
Supercollider such a homer respons.

5.) 18 Aug 2018 14:36:53
I think if Butler gets moved it will be near or at the deadline. Maybe Brooklyn, maybe NY. Sixers have an outside shot but Fultz and Chandler aren't enough I don't think.

6.) 18 Aug 2018 15:28:56
letsgokncks don't be mad.

Boston trade makes the most sense for the Wolves, but because of the cap Boston would have to refuse that trade. Brown and Smart have more value to Boston's future than for just 1 season of Butler.

Butler will be moved, just not to any of those teams.

7.) 18 Aug 2018 18:43:49
Lol I’d take Harris and sga over brown and smart.



17 Aug 2018 08:35:57
1)NY- Portland

Portland: Kanter
NY: E Turner+ 1rnd pick Portland+ swap option 2020 pick


NO: T Hardaway
LA: S Hill
NY: Deng+ 1rnd pick LA

NY aims for the 2020 free agent market and get some draft picks.

They can develop the young players and they will propably have a high draft pick with Porzingis out.


1.) 17 Aug 2018 13:30:12
I don't see the blazers doing this. They aren't in position to let draft assets go. They could be a lottery team this season.

2.) 17 Aug 2018 16:17:58
I do see Portland doing this, even if they end up in the lottery, it’s going to be late in it (12-14). For a team facing the tax this year, and already on pace to pay the repeater next year, getting rid of $17M off the books for 2019-20 and adding a player more likely to help them squeeze into the playoffs now makes this deal reasonable for them.

The concern I have with these deals is that I think the Knicks are looking to strike in the upcoming FA class more than waiting until 2020. I’m not saying they shouldn’t wait, as a Knicks fan I would prefer this route, but the lure of Irving, Butler, Walker or Durant May cause them to aim for next offseason.

3.) 17 Aug 2018 16:24:06
Hardaway for Turner 2nd

NY needs a playmaker next to frank, rebounder and better defender

Portland has little to no bench scoring or shooting. your looking at a 18 ppg pure scorer. Harkless and Aminu can play sf.

4.) 17 Aug 2018 16:49:50
Blazers don't care about the tax because they aren't so far into it they have to pay tens of millions. Losing a possible lottery pick is way more important to them at this stage of the rebuild than squeaking into the playoffs. Kanter isn't helping them win a playoff bid either. Turner contributes more than kanter would on the blazers roster.

5.) 17 Aug 2018 18:05:41
Yeah, I'm not sure how Kanter helps Portland more than Turner. Kanter is the worst defensive center in the NBA. Portland has a solid starting center and a young backup that they love. Kanter wouldn't fit a need at all. Turner on the other hand isn't a great fit, but Portland needs wings and ball handers.

I think Portland would rather hold onto Turner, let the young guys develop, and dump him next offseason when there's more cap space to be used.



15 Aug 2018 10:49:57
bucks: Butler+ Irving

Minny: Middleton+ Brogdon

Boston: Bledsoe+ Maker+ 2 future first round picks Bucks+ 1rnd pick Minny


1.) 15 Aug 2018 11:11:21
Obviously you hate the Celtics. Bledsoe, sucks. Proved that in the playoffs. That return is ridiculous.
The last thing the Celtics need to make a run at a title is more draft picks.

2.) 15 Aug 2018 12:39:41
Why would Minnesota give up a 1st to get inferior players, one who has the same contract situation as Butler?

3.) 15 Aug 2018 14:20:19
@ Joe, three first round picks isn't a bad return for an expiring flight risk.

4.) 15 Aug 2018 14:59:16
Xxx, there is no proof that he is leaving, buT that aside, why would the Celtics scuttle their chances at going to the finals by trading one of their top 1-3 players?
Answer: They wouldn't. They will go for a title. If he walks at the end of the year, he walks.
Ainge is not afraid to lose a FA. I think he believes he can resign him, regardless of the reports that have him going somewhere else.

This year is title or bust.

5.) 15 Aug 2018 15:03:16
Xxx, to answeryour question, no it's not a bad return for most teams. But, it would not be a good deal for a team with championship aspirations.
Do you think the Warriors would trade him in a similar situation?
Would the Lakers? The Rockets?
Absolutely not. Can't understand why people would think the Celtics would. SMH.

6.) 15 Aug 2018 15:23:17
Agree with JoeB, with LBJ out of the East, and Boston a leading contender to get to the finals, this trade doesn’t make sense for them today.

As for the Minny return carl2006, not sure how you see Middleton and Brogdon as a garbage return for Butler, whether he was expiring or not. Middleton put up 20/ 5/ 4 last year, and would give Minny something they desperately need, a 3PT marksman. Brogdon’s 13/ 3/ 3 on efficient shooting numbers is also a really nice asset.

7.) 15 Aug 2018 17:08:51
Triagnle. I never said they were garbage. They are inferior to Butler, so both of them might get Butler, but Minnesota is also giving up a 1st, which tips the scale as a bad trade for Minnesota.

8.) 15 Aug 2018 21:05:04
I think Ainge could do this if he feels Irving is gone and Rozier keeps playing good.

This trade gives them an extra big man, Maker could still bevome a descent player.
This trade gives Boston the flexibility to get another star and stay competitive for the Title.

9.) 15 Aug 2018 21:46:01
You guys are crazy if you think Ainge will trade Irving. If he were inclined to do it, it would've been done long ago.
It ain't happening.
Rozier is not now, or will ever be as good as Irving.
I don't care who disagrees with me.

10.) 15 Aug 2018 23:08:18
Ok so it’s a bust season @joe! Nobody is beating the warriors this year it sucks to say cause it kinda makes watching basketball not fun but when Demarcus comes back at even 50% himself they’re unstoppable! Boston has a great team but nothing like this garbage gsw have made.

11.) 16 Aug 2018 01:29:15
You could be right, but the Warriors looked pretty vulnerable against the Rockets. The Cavs were awful, too.
But, we will all find out next June.

12.) 16 Aug 2018 23:23:58
The Cavs got swept bro so ya they looked horrible maybe Boston wins 2 games but still not beating the warriors, like I said it sucks we already know the champions of 2019 (I hope I’m wrong) but almost certain I’m not.

Both The Nets and the Clippers have losing records most of the time, but they have a rich owner and they're in a big market. Do you guys believe they can become a big free agent destination in the future?


1.) 13 Aug 2018 15:38:31
Nets: Maybe
Clippers: Probably not

If someone wants to go to LA, the Lakers beat them, so the Clippers probably can't draw much so long as the Lakers have cap space/ flexibility.

As much as NY is talked about as a major draw, I don't actuallly believe it is. The Nets are an improving franchise with a solid front office finally, so they could turn it around. But I'll believe it when I see it.

NY is a lot like Notre Dame in college football, it rides off of history from before I was born.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 18:03:42
Clippers had a winning record last year didn't they? Haven't they also had a pretty good ladt 5-7 seasons in terms of winning? It's not like they are the kings or something.

3.) 13 Aug 2018 18:32:15
Lob city had a great run, but they didn't play a conference final.
Before lob city they had a winning record in 2006 (47-35) With Brand and Maggete as stars.
They made the playoffs in 96 with only 36 wins and L Vaught and B williams as star players
And the 1991-1993 Clippers had two playoff first round exits with M Jackson- R Harper and D Manning.
And the San Diego Clippers never made it to the playoffs.

The Clippers could be the kings :-) :-) :-)

4.) 13 Aug 2018 19:49:14
The clippers would have been the kings if not for the Paul>Lakers trade veto. If Paul goes to the Lakers, the Clippers are basically the Kings (griffin and cousins leading bad teams) .

They’ve never pulled a meaningful free agent.

They did have a nice run, and I don’t think they go back to the Clippers of old. They’ll be a decent team with their ownership and management. But I don’t think that high end free agents will consider them.

5.) 13 Aug 2018 22:15:18
We will find out next summer. Brooklyn will have 2 max slots with some young talent.

6.) 14 Aug 2018 14:10:32
1st bmiller your talking about the 2 most popular cities in the country, brooklyn existed less than 10 yrs in brooklyn and your comparing them to notre dame. Worst part is the people who believe you. that's la and ny haters like u. U should say that about knicks and lakers, you might have a point. let's face it any player if the situation or cap is right, would choice lakers and knicks before any other city bc of marketing money.

7.) 14 Aug 2018 14:21:46
Brooklyn and Clippers far better attraction to free agents than Portland.

8.) 14 Aug 2018 15:32:29
Yeah, and Portland can't land a major free agent. They never have, they never will. I know that about my team. Knicks fans lie to themselves that they're still a free agent destination, when they're not. If Portland and the Knicks both had max FA money, I would expect both to waste it on a player like Kanter (Portland originally signed that deal, the Knicks now own it! )

You say that any player would pick the Knicks, but only one (Amare) has in the last 20 years. No one wants to play for the Knicks. It's probably more to do with the horrible ownership and management than the city, but I really think that the "mecca of basketball" thing isn't true anymore.

I'm not a big city hater, I'm a realist. The Lakers are a destination. Miami is a destination. The Knicks aren't. The Clippers aren't. That's not my opinion, that's history.

9.) 14 Aug 2018 16:13:23
Just because of the long term success, the way they’ve treated their stars/ former stars, history of the Lakers, and all of the players in the history of the franchise, it’s hard to imagine the Clippers ever having any where near the pull that the Lakers have. They’re so far from equal footing that I don’t think the Clippers will ever have much more than a slight advantage over the smaller market teams in free agency.

It’s much easier to think the Nets could draw closer to the Knicks. It’s not like the Knicks have pulled a ton of elite free agents, as long as Dolan is the owner player have to worry about that mess, the franchise has been pretty bad for the past 20+ years, it’s overal history is overstated in general, and they’ve treated former stars terribly. It’s not hard to imagine the Nets proving over the next ten years that they’re the destination in New York and pulling close to even as a free agent destination long term.

10.) 14 Aug 2018 18:04:56
The Mecca of basketball is L. A. Bmiller66. NY is just a city where it is played. The true blue meca is Kansas, that's where it began, but L. A. Is the capital city of basketball in America now. Seattle used to be a big one too, and still is, just not in the NBA.

11.) 14 Aug 2018 21:40:11
The "Mecca of Basketball" is NY. That's what they call it. I didn't make that up.

My point was what you said though, that LA is really the current basketball capital. At least for pro basketball.

12.) 15 Aug 2018 00:21:54
Nobody wants to play in ny Porzingis doesn’t even want to play there and that (huge trade for carmelo) well we all know how that turned out! The owner and front office is a joke! And I can’t wait till Brooklyn gets jimmy and kyrie. I live in manhattan 4 months out of the year so I’ll actually see exciting basketball!

13.) 16 Aug 2018 00:00:14
It started in Ontario where James Naismith was born and brought it to merica.



24 Jul 2018 08:05:21
The Nets have the money to sign 3 big free agents next year.
Do you think they will be able to get a big three?


1.) 24 Jul 2018 11:13:19
No they are still the nets. No Kawhi kawhi Leonard super team.

2.) 24 Jul 2018 12:22:41
Paul Pearce, Kevin Garnett, derron Williams just joking you poor nets fans maybe Kyrie and jimmy buckets.

3.) 24 Jul 2018 13:20:00
If you want to form a super team, the Nets would have to be an appealing spot. Big market, ton of cash, they’ll have Aa high pick, easier path in the east, and they have some nice players to complement the stars. If you can get to stars, like Rad suggested, that want to play together, it would be appealing.



10 Jul 2018 23:53:44
Atlanta: L Ball+ J Jackson+ deng

LA: T Young+ t Chandler

Phoe:Schroder+ 1rnd pick LA


1.) 11 Jul 2018 03:44:26
Suns wouldn't go for this I'd guess.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 18:36:37
Suns say no.



03 Jul 2018 17:33:00
I love Boogie, some team should have given him a four year 130M contract.
So he screws them all :-) :-) :-)


1.) 04 Jul 2018 20:06:22
To a guy who suffered an injury that no one has come back from and been the same? 130 mil huh? Interesting.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 21:08:12
I watch in in playoffs. I've never seenBoogie play.



02 Jul 2018 13:53:03
Should Cleveland have tried to trade LBJ for Deng and assets?


1.) 02 Jul 2018 14:00:00
No. The asking price would have been too high. Lakers aren't offering up much in assets to spurs why would they for an expired? Deng and a second rounder or maybe zubac? I doubt they would have even offered hart.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 14:17:25
They needed out of the luxury. Like I've repeated over and over that was the first goal upon Lebron leaving and they've done that. Even something small would have had to be more appealing to them than trying to keep Hood, because he's going to put them back towards that line.
