Interesting proposed trade I've seen if cavs get swept

Cavs - pacers
Kevin Love for Paul George

Pacers get an all Star for a player that seems gone! Love could work well with turner as well

Cleveland go for it all next year with lebron , Kyrie and Paul George hopefully convincing him to stay ( i'd trade T Thompson for a rim Protecting big with range as well ie ibaka , lopez, dieng )


1.) 09 Jun 2017 06:41:47
Not sure if Pacers would prefer Love over a package they may get from Lakers but George would be a very good pickup for Cavs even without any guarantee of resigning. He'd give them a defensive upgrade and more versatility that I think would be worth the risk of him staying only 1 year. I think the opportunity to contend is all he wants so I think he could potentially stay.

2.) 09 Jun 2017 10:07:05
Jaw -- If all George wants is to play on a contending team, why is he so interested in the Lakers? Even with George, the LAL are nowhere near contending for a title. It would seem to me that George's top priority is playing for the Lakers, then money and/ or a title shot.

3.) 09 Jun 2017 10:47:02
I'm sure the opportunity to play with Lebron and compete for a title could be very persuading

He can always play for the lakers once lebron finally slows down and still be the lakers franchise player.

If Indy doesn't make drastic upgrades to their current roster this off season that results in another superstar to pair him with then PG13 is heading back to his hometown to resurrect the purple and gold either via trade or as a FA in 2018. LA is going to do what is necessary to have the cap space for a 2nd max deal player to join him. If they can keep the majority of their young talent while adding PG13 and fellow 2018 UFA Cousins they would be back to the WCF's almost immediately. Assuming Ingram, Russell, and their #2 pic (hopefully Fox or Jackson) are able to realize their potential.

Cle - nets

Tristan Thompson for brook Lopez

76ers - Celtics

Simple trade that helps both teams

Boston Recieve - j okafor
76ers Recieve - j brown


1.) 17 May 2017 10:13:46
Boston says no I'm sure they could get a much better return the that.

2.) 17 May 2017 13:39:32
Boston doesn't just say no, they laugh Philly off the phone. Philly needed to move a center this past season, and moved Noel for pretty much just two second round picks. If they could have gotten anything for Okafor, I'm sure they would have moved him instead. No way is Boston moving Brown for him unless you also want to include that #3 pick. That honestly would be a lateral move, as that pick would likely be Jackson who's a very similar player, but less developed.

PHILLY Trade J. Okafor

PHX Trade B. Knight

Depth charts
PG - Knight / Bayless
SG - Henderson / stauskas / Luwawu
SF - Covington / (Tatum - 4th)
PF - Simmons / Saric
C - Embiid / Holmes / resign Splitter

PG - Bledsoe / Ulis
SG - Booker / ( Jackson - 2nd)
SF - Warren / Dudley
PF - Chriss / Williams / Bender
C - Okafor / Len / Chandler


1.) 03 May 2017 20:43:39
Philly should have no interest in knight.



25 Apr 2017 09:32:01
I think Portland should look into splitting the guard combo of lillard & mccollom combo to take the next step!

So my ideas are
Trade McCollum for jabari Parker + 1st

McCollum for Dario Saric + 1st

McCollum + vonleh + 1st for j butler + 2nd


1.) 25 Apr 2017 15:39:57
I wouldn't touch Parker, that's not something I'd ever consider.

Saric and a top 5 pick is good value, I just don't think Portland would be interested in rebuilding around a top 5 pick.

Butler would be a great fit with Lillard.

Perhaps a mixture of the last two:

Phili gets McCollum
Chicago gets picks #4 and #15, and one of crabbe/ harkless, and Leonard
Portland gets Butler and Saric.

2.) 25 Apr 2017 18:05:17
Butler would be the dream and I think with 3 1sts in this years draft Portland may have the ammunition if he is available. Bulls would also be a place they could potential dump young guys with bad contracts like Crabbe, Harkless or Leonard to get Portland out of luxury (a rebuilding Bulls team could use the talent since Crabbe and Harkless would probably start for them without Butler and they wouldn't need as much cap space) . Although with Bulls and Butler's performance thus far in playoffs he may not be available.

Not too keen of the other moves. Parker presents unnecessary risk and similar to McCollum outside of scoring he doesn't contribute much (Parker isn't a special rebounder for his size/ position) . Saric and 1st isn't awful as they could get Monk with that pick who projects to be a similar type of player however, it feels like an unnecessary step back for a promising team that should be trying to move forward.

Bmiller66's idea of combining two is interesting too. McCollum would be a perfect fit in 76ers as he gives them a go-to scorer who can light it up from outside and play off-ball with Simmons while having skills to run pg at times and is young enough to fit that team. I think the offer to Chicago would have to be bolstered a bit (maybe Saric goes there) and if they wanted to dump contracts which would be wise, Portland would likely have to add its other two 1sts. Bulls may prefer to just get McCollum and a 1st (or other pieces) themselves since McCollum is young enough to build around, signed long term and I think his game would rise to another level being able to be #1 offensive option and having ball in his hand more (he also could make a pretty good point guard) .

It doesn't necessarily have to be moving McCollum but I think Portland has to make a move with their 3 1sts. Getting Butler one of the best-two players in the league and clearing up cap space by moving two guys like Crabbe and Leonard I think would be a strong offseason.

Where will Chris Bosh head next year ( if healthy )

Personally would love to see him with John wall and the wizards

Decent starting 5
Pg - Wall
Sg - beal
Sf - porter
Pf - bosh
C - gortat


1.) 25 May 2017 10:52:19
Bosh at center and Markief Morris at the 4 would be better

2.) 26 May 2017 15:30:21
If healthy, Houston might be an option. He almost signed there 3 years ago and would still be a solid fit and starter. Boston could be a solid fit. Utah would be a great fit. He and Gobert complement each other well and they need more guys who can create offense. I don't think you could count out the Spurs, Warriors, and Cavs. Some desperate teams like the Clippers, Bulls, and Pacers could go after him pretty hard. It's a pretty big if weather or not he'll ever play again though.



11 May 2017 12:06:52
My draft predictions

1. Fultz - Philadelphia (via kings)
2. Jackson - Orlando
3. Ball - Boston
4. Tatum - Phoenix
5. Monk - Philadelphia (via lakers)
6. Fox - Sacramento (via 76ers)
7. Isaac - Minnesota
8. Smith - New York


1.) 11 May 2017 13:17:47
Given the draft lottery's shady history, I see little chance that the Lakers do not get one of the top two picks. Would not shock me to see them get No. 1. The NBA needs a strong team in LA for TV ratings, and the lottery is the one way the league can help make that happen.

2.) 11 May 2017 16:12:29
Why would the Celtics take Ball?

3.) 12 May 2017 01:00:11
Best option after the top 2 preferences are gone!

4.) 12 May 2017 17:06:26
He does not fit in Boston. Tatum or Isaac or a trade would be a way better option.



08 May 2017 23:45:31
Rudy Gay has opted for Free Agency
Possible teams that he could fit


Wash ( if porter leaves )
Nyk ( if Anthony leaves )


Lac ( if lose 1 of big 3 )


1.) 09 May 2017 09:18:48
Since he opted out of his 14.2 mil salary, he will likely command something in 17-20 range (he could even get more from Nets maybe), so Pelicans, Grizzlies, Thunder don't have the space to sign him currently.

2.) 09 May 2017 10:41:31
I think Miami would be a favorable destination for him although they may be more interested in retaining Waiters and Johnson they shelling out what it would cost to get Gay.

3.) 09 May 2017 13:04:48
thought about Miami but think they will go after bigger fish ( gallinari, Hayward )

Not sure he will receive 20 mill, he's probably looking to secure a longer contract coming off an injury! Nets could offer that but I see them just playing lavert and RHJ more!



14 Apr 2017 05:37:29

1. K. Durant - GSW
2. S. Curry - GSW

28. S. Livingston - GSW

1.) 14 Apr 2017 08:05:12
As much as I'd like to see Indy and Utah make those moves neither have the salary cap to make those moves as their roster currently stands. Indy doesn't have Teague's Bird Rights and I think only have in mid 20 mill in cap room so it would be difficult to add Griffin. Its not impossible but they'd have to move most if not all of Young, Jefferson, Ellis, and Stuckey. If they did they'd have a solid starting lineup but absolutely no bench with little to no cap space to address it. CJ Miles is probably declining his option for a raise too which will hurt them even more.

For Utah they have Hayward's Bird rights so he isn't an issue but they'd need cap space to sign both Hill and Millsap. To do so they'd have to decline Diaw's option then move Favors, Burks, and Johnson. I'd really like to see this happen since that Jazz team would still have a respectable bench and that starting lineup would be tough. They'd be paying luxury tax for the next 4 years tho.

I think Utah is more likely than Indy scenario since I don't see Griffin leaving LA.

2.) 14 Apr 2017 08:14:31
Don't think Taj to Orlando makes sense for both parties. Orlando should be going young and allowing minutes for Gordon, Vucevic and Biyombo while Taj should want to be on a contender. Don't see Patty Mills going to Washington either since they are already over the cap and Jennings or Burke would probably be cheaper to just retain. Don't think there is a good fit for Wade anywhere unless he is willing to take a massive pay cut, Gary Harris played very well this year so not sure Denver would want to disrupt his development by bringing in Wade.

Clippers would be absolutely screwed if Paul, Griffin and Reddick left. I would say they may be better off trying to deal Jordan and rebuilding but they have traded away most of their draft picks so signing Galo and Rose would at least keep them somewhat watchable.

Spurs would need to do some wiggling to sign Paul (have to trade Parker and if they wanted to sign Gasol too he'd need to take a 10 mill+ paycut) but that would be a perfect fit.

3.) 14 Apr 2017 08:38:55
I see Utah moving favors so that would shed some $ for milllsap not 100% what their salary is like

Indiana is going to go one way or another! Rebuild or go for it all with griffin that starting 5 is elite

Orlando needs some leadership that why I picked Gibson to go their

Clips could stay the same but they haven't had succes so I see 1 or both Paul and griffin leaving

Denver went for wade last year he won't get paid highly but he is quickly running out of options.

4.) 14 Apr 2017 13:46:54
The Spurs would have a hard time getting the capspace to sign Paul, I don't see the Clippers making those moves if Paul and Griffin leave, I think Livingston looks for a pay check this year, Patty Mills is going to get way to much money from a fringe playoff team (more than the Wizards could offer), Wade will opt in since his open market value is tanking, I could see Caldwell-Pope being offered the max by someone and Detroit not wanting to match it because how far they are over the cap, and Zbo might end up chasing a ring.

I like the Thompson for Anthony trade but just leaves Cleveland very thin at centre.

The golden state trade is not sensible! If the warriors were to trade Thompson they could get a much better return.

I would enjoy this 2 of my favourites love and Howard playing together!

ATL get a decent return for a leaving millsap who I believe would fit nicely next to lebron!

Not bad.
