Trade #1

Cleveland - Denver

Cleveland trades: Collin Sexton and Tristan Thompson

Denver trades: Jamaal Murray and Gary Harris

Why for Cleveland? Acquire two talented guards that still have room to grow. They could be our backcourt of the future.

Why for Denver? Sexton gives them their point guard of the future. Thompson is added for salary purposes.

Trade #2

Cleveland - Oklahoma City

Cleveland trades: Jordan Clarkson and J. R. Smith

Oklahoma City trades: Steven Adams and Kyle Singler

Why for Cleveland? Upgrade their center position; Adams is an underrated big and fits perfectly next to Love. Singler could be a backup combo forward.

Why for Oklahoma City? They get a starting calliber shooting guard in Clarkson. Smith is added for salary purposes.

Cleveland starting line-up
PG: Jamaal Murray / George Hill
SG: Gary Harris / Kyle Korver
SF: Cedi Osman / Sam Dekker / Kyle Singler
PF: Kevin Love / Larry Nance / Channing Frye
C: Steven Adams / Ante Zizic.

They’re both bad for the other team

Denver gives up 2 proven players that could potentially be allstars at some point. The Cavs would be happy if Sexton was that good.

OKC laughs at the 2nd one. Adams is a top 15 center. Clarkson isn’t good and Smith is just a contract that could be used to dump cap space.

2.) 16 Aug 2018 20:44:37
Thanks for the post Cleveland homer!

Sexton may or may not end up being as good as Murray, and Thompson for Harris is just a joke.

Why would OKC need Clarkson with Schroder in town, and why would the Thunder give up Adams, who is key to their defensive success for a selfish, streaky shooter in Smith?

3.) 16 Aug 2018 23:52:00
I realize murray and Harris aren't all stars but they are high end nba players. Sexton is a gamble, and Thompson is overpaid.

4.) 19 Aug 2018 02:34:04
OKC laughs and hangs up the phone! The only way they move Adams is for a star example Davis. He is under rated and not valued as much as he should be. He is the best offensive rebounder and if not the toughest, one of the toughest strongest players in the NBA. And he can defend the wing for an example look back at a rockets game he hangs with Harden and Paul and in the playoffs that will be very important.

5.) 20 Aug 2018 04:07:13
Adams ain't going nowhere for anyone.

Trade #1

Cleveland trades: Collin Sexton, J. R. Smith and Tristan Thompson

Orlando trades: Evan Fournier, Nikola Vucevic and '19 top 5 protected first round draft pick

Why for Cleveland? They acquire a couple of established players that fit into the roster plus a first round draft pick.

Why for Orlando? This is all about getting a very good prospect that could be their future at point guard.

I realize that frontcourt defense could be an issue, but I don't think Vucevic is a downgrade in that regard over Thompson.

Trade #2

Cleveland trades: George Hill

Miami trades: Goran Dragic

Why for Cleveland? This is about upgrading their point guard position and Dragic is a major upgrade over Hill.

Why for Miami? They shed a year off Dragic's contract in favor of Hill, who only has 1 million guaranteed for '19 - '20.

PG: Goran Dragic | Jordan Clarkson
SG: Evan Fournier
SF: Cedi Osman
PF: Kevin Love | Larry Nance
C: Nikola Vucevic | Ante Zizic
+ '19 first round draft pick from the Magic.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 14:35:10
Thompson and Smith have negative contacts. You don't get assets and a 1st for negative contracts and a 8th pick.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 15:28:17
Collin Sexton looks like he could be a future superstar.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 16:08:01
Thompson is a negative contract for sure. Smith’s contract fairly close to an expiring and Fournier’s contract is a lot worse than Smith’s given the length and not much better than than Tristan’s. I don’t think either team would be overly excited with the Cavs. They probably like Sexton more than most and the Magic wouldn’t want to give up a pick in a Vucevic deal. I don’t see it for either team.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 19:16:38
Fournier contact may be longer, but he's younger, a better defender, and would be a contributor on any team. Add that they are taking Thompson for a good exciting contract in vouch. Plus yes the magic need a PG. But they had an opportunity to draft Sexton if they thought he was the one. Not good for the magic at all.

Cleveland trades: Collin Sexton, J. R. Smith and Tristan Thompson

Orlando trades: Evan Fournier and Nikola Vucevic

Why for Cleveland? Acquire a couple of established players that fit into the roster. Fournier is severely underrated and Vucevic gives us a back to the basket big, which is very useful in the playoffs - get rid of two bad contracts in the process also.

Why for Orlando? This is all about getting a very good prospect that could be their future at point guard. The Magic are a rebuilding team so getting rid of two win now players shouldn't hurt them at all.

PG: George Hill | Jordan Clarkson
SG: Evan Fournier
SF: Cedi Osman
PF: Kevin Love | Larry Nance
C: Nikola Vucevic | Ante Zizic

I realize that frontcourt defense could be an issue, but I don't think Vucevic is a downgrade in that regard over Thompson.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 20:41:13
Why would the Cavs give up Sexton? That line up might not even make the playoffs and the upside of that team is a 1st round exit? What’s the point?

2.) 31 Jul 2018 20:59:55
I think that's a very balanced line-up.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 23:29:46
If by balanced you mean that all of the players outside of Love are below average starters than yes. Hill is a low end starter at this point. Fournier and Vucevic are both guys who put up solid offensive numbers on a terrible team. Osman has an interesting skill set, but he’s going from 4th or 5th option to a guy who is going to have to create in that lineup. He’s going to have growing pains. Why give up a player that has allstar upside for Fournier and Vucevic? If they still had Lebron, I could see rolling the dice, but this just guarantees they don’t get next year’s pick and they trade away this year’s pick in the deal.

As a magic fan I do it.

Cleveland Cavaliers masterplan if LeBron leaves next season.

Move #1:
Move up in the draft for Marvin Bagley. Package the #8 pick + Kevin Love. I think that package can move us about four spots, in the Bagley range. Only do it if he's available.

Move #2:
LeBron S&T to Houston along with Thompson in exchange for Capela, Gordon, Tucker, Nene and 46th pick. I don't know if this is even possible, but worth exploring. I think Capela gets 4 years, 80 million.

Move #3:
Coaching change. Tyronn Lue is not a bad coach, but if LeBron leaves, what's the point of keeping him around? I think it would be good for both sides to move on. As for coaching candidates, hire someone good at developing. Dwane Casey is a coach I'd be interested in.

Move #4:
Tank for R. J. Barrett. I don't think the cavs will be good next season, so tanking for Barrett seems like a good option. He's the guy I would target in next years draft.

Move #5:
With bad contracts coming off the books in 2019, go after Terry Rozier. I don't think the Celtics will match given their salary situation. Something like 4 years, 65 million.

With all these moves, you have Bagley, Barrett, Rozier and Capela to build around, with Gordon, Clarkson, Nance and Tucker as role players. Cedi Osman is another young prospect worth monitoring. Zizic looks promising as well.

As for Rodney Hood, make him a RFA. Only match if the offer is in the 8 million range annually. Anything over that is an overpay imo.




26 May 2018 15:51:30
Cavs offseason plan:

Fire Tyronn Lue - hire Dwane Casey.

Find a way to get Marvin Bagley and build around him.

Get a better GM - Koby Altman sucks.

Sign Terry Rozier in 2019. Plan B would be to trade for Dennis Schroder if his value is low.

Cleveland Cavaliers sign Jordan Farmar and J. J. Hickson.


1.) 03 Feb 2017 14:22:32
Jordan got posterized.



02 Feb 2017 20:05:48
Cleveland Cavaliers sign Jordan Farmar and Andray Blatche.




26 May 2016 22:31:33
Philadelphia 76ers offseason:

Trade Jahlil Okafor to Boston for the #3 pick and Avery Bradley.

Trade Carl Landry, Hollis Thompson and pick #24 to a team willing to take the final year of his contract.

Sign Dario Saric 4 yrs 60m.

#1 pick: (SF) Brandon Ingram
#3 pick: (PG) Jamal Murray
#26 pick: (SG) DeAndre Bembry

PG: Jamal Murray / Kendall Marshall / T. J. McConnell
SG: Avery Bradley / Nick Stauskas / DeAndre Bembry
SF: Brandon Ingram / Robert Covington / Jerami Grant
PF: Dario Saric / Rashaun Holmes / Christian Wood
C: Nerlens Noel / Joel Embiid.


1.) 27 May 2016 00:03:26
I don't think Celtics give up that much for Okafor. I don't think they should even give up just #3 for him since I don't believe he is a good fit. I don't understand why 76ers would do second trade either. 76ers have plenty of cap space and I don't think they'll attract any decent FA so why give up assets to get rid of a contract that isn't even that bad and in its final year.



26 May 2016 20:53:01
Philly offseason:

Trade Okafor and #26 pick to Boston for #3 pick and Avery Bradley.

#1 pick: SF Brandon Ingram

#3 pick: PG Jamal Murray

#24 pick: PF Thon Maker

PG: Jamal Murray / Kendall Marshall / T. J. McConnell
SG: Avery Bradley / Nick Stauskas / Hollis Thompson
SF: Brandon Ingram / Robert Covington / Jerami Grant
PF: Thon Maker / Rashaun Holmes / Christian Wood
C: Nerlens Noel / Joel Embiid.


1.) 26 May 2016 22:28:00
Can we like stop with these Okafor for the 3rd pick plus a player trades? Yes there were talks but Okafor does not fit our system and we will not give up more than just the 3rd pick for him. Danny has a mind set where he has to feel like he wins the trade. So there is no way the Sixers get the 3rd pick AND any of Smart, Bradley or Crowder.

2.) 27 May 2016 00:12:57
Okafor is a throwback big man. His strong back to the basket offensive skill set is extinct in this league since it eats up clock and slows down offense. Since league is becoming more guard driven big men are more valuable that are athletic can play defense, especially quick enough to guard pick and roll and able to switch onto perimeter players for a little bit and rebound neither of which are Okafor's strong suit. Their offense This doesn't mean Okafor isn't a good player and will never improve on these things but most established teams like Celtics aren't built to support his style of play. Thus I see Okafor being most effective and valuable to a team that's deep in the rebuilding phase and can get pieces to fit around Okafor (since he has the makings of an all-star caliber center and prolific scorer) rather than the Celtics who are trying to fit the missing piece to their puzzle.

3.) 27 May 2016 17:15:09
Personally, I agree with Jaw entirely. I think Okafor is a solid franchise center, i do not believe he will be a top 3-4 center in the league. Not bad but not elite. He just doesn't have the potential to dominate both sides of the ball like a Towns or Davis. And I would choose Jordan over him. And Porzingis. And a few other centers.

Even still. IF the celtics took a gamble and did the 3 for okafor, that's a big if. to then assume the celtics include bradley for a late 1st is nonsense.

The sixers would be lucky to snag just the 3 for okafor. To expect other benefits in the trade doesn't seem realistic. Its not a match for either team.

4.) 27 May 2016 18:09:49
Thank you guys. But people don't get that at all and they will continue to post the SAME EXACT TRADE each and every day.

5.) 27 May 2016 18:45:32
@larry: NO! We must as a group post at least one Dangelo Russell for jimmy butler, one victor oladipo for Paul George, one Oka4 for #3, and one Zach Lavine and the #5 for whichever rumoured trading block fodder captivaes us that day, every day. If we don't, WHO WILL? So please stop being selfish and work on a #3 for Oak post immediately. Think of the children Larry, THE CHILDREN!

6.) 27 May 2016 19:34:38
Has anyone mentioned Okafor to the Celtics today?

7.) 27 May 2016 19:59:04
Yes! JJ_PR did. its on page 2 now.

8.) 27 May 2016 21:00:50
and he just posted another one too.

9.) 27 May 2016 21:41:49
I know. Tho in his defense I'm pretty sure if you post something here enough times it automatically happens in real life.

10.) 28 May 2016 00:28:59
That would explain bensimmons, drainer and true bigot. Guess durant, lebron and Chris Paul will all be playing for the vet minimum for the magic the mavs and the lakers next year.



21 May 2016 01:47:01
Lakers - Houston

Lakers trade: #2 pick, Russell and Randle

Houston trades: James Harden.


1.) 21 May 2016 23:46:50
I hate that trade for the Lakers but if I'm Houston I'm jumping all on that. They don't have much outside of Harden and by dealing him they'd have a young core of Russell, Ingram/ Simmons, Randle and Capela going forward. They could also resign Jones and DMo.
