Coach swap:

Billy Donovan for Tom Thibbadou.


1.) 15 Jul 2018 20:05:39
I can see why Minnesota would like Donovan, but why would OKC want anything to do with Thibodaux? He is a terrific defensive coach, as an assistant. He is not a good head coach.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 20:24:51
He would play the Hell out of westbrick. Good pairing.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 23:15:56
he is not a good head coach?

Hes made the playoffs 6 of 7 years, including the first time in ages for minnesota. He took over a bulls team that was 41 and 41, and turned them into a team that was 42 games over 500. If you think he is a bad head coach, you clearly don't know what a good one is.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 23:29:44
Letsgoknocks- he had talent in minny and underachieved.

5.) 16 Jul 2018 21:42:48
Um, he didnt. I seriously have no clue what you are talking about. His first year, the team was AWFUL. His starting lineup was rubio, lavine, wiggins, towns and dieng. The two bigs are good, the other 3 are not. Lavine and wiggins are likely the worst defending tandem in the league. Rubio and wiggins can't shoot. So clearly, that team was not talented.

This past year, with the best player (butler) out 25% of the year, he brought the team into the playoffs for the first time in years.

How is that underachieving? They had the same record this year as the all amazing spurs, better than the heat, the bucks, the pacers, all while playing in the significantly harder western conference. Simply saying he had talent and underachieved is wrong. Throw some type of info out to rebut that, because the facts show a decent coach.

6.) 17 Jul 2018 12:09:56
Dieng is not good.



04 Jul 2018 20:56:37
Lakers send: Luol Deng and a 2020 second rounder

Magic send B Biyombo

Trash for Trash with the same amount of years on each deal, but I feel like the Lakers could use big that can switch even if he offers nothing on offense, while the magic can clear out an overcrowded front court to maximize Bamba’s minutes.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 21:28:06
Magic wouldn't do it. They want out of vucevic, biyombo is a good piece i'm reserve. Biyombo is 10, 10, 2.5 per 36 player.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 22:18:23
Bis is a better piece than Deng.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 00:20:16
Lakers can always stretch Deng. They can’t stretch any player they trade for.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 02:22:13
Btec- vuc is one year left and cheaper deal. Bis contract is way too much for a backup.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 02:52:18
Delisional or believable?

1 guy is 33 vs 26

Biyombo has great def value, if deng can play he is good, his body has worn down in the last 3 yrs.

6.) 05 Jul 2018 18:56:21
@shiller41 missed the point I was making entirely. Deng is junk though comparatively to address your concern.



04 Jul 2018 08:22:37
Highly unlikely idea, but one I think would’ve really benefit both teams assuming Philly won’t trade for Kawai.

Blazers send CJ Mccollum and Evan Turner

Sixers send Fultz and Covington

Portland cuts a ton of salary and gets talent that I think fits the team well.

6ers get the perfect fit of handling and shooting in Mccollum who can also play offball to Simmons. Turner will be off the books before they have to pay their young core.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 13:07:50
Sixers don’t have anywhere close to that much cap space to take on those deals any longer.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 16:02:02
The 6ers are only at 74 million total salary for next year so they’d stil he under the cap after this deal.

3.) 04 Jul 2018 16:22:19
Sixers are at least 94 mil.

4.) 04 Jul 2018 18:48:47
sixers are at about 99 with redick’s new deal and the chandler acquisition, this deal as is would put them at 130.they need to send out about 14 mil more (to get to 75% of cj+turner) for this to happen.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 22:12:06
Maybe add Bayless.



04 Jul 2018 08:03:22
Short and sweet

Lakers send Kuzma, Lonzo, and Deng

T-Wolves send Jimmy Butler and Tyus Jones.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 12:40:52
Thibs doesn't like young players, but it would be worth it just to see how he would deal with Ball's old man.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 13:11:11
Deng is not going to move in any deal that brings back a superstar, his contract is just too big a negative value.

3.) 04 Jul 2018 16:06:56
The core of Lonzo, Wiggins, Kuzma, and Kat fits together beautifully, defense-wise and spacing-wise. I’m doubling down, this is a great deal for the future of the Wolves.

4.) 04 Jul 2018 16:35:43
I think wolves jump on this deal. They will have a bright future and will have Deng while ball and kuzma are in rookie deals and will be on rookies deals longer then Deng contract. If do on deadline is only less then a year and a half of bad contract. Lakers just add there 2019 pick for taking Deng.

I believe something like this will happen is y I say this believable. I think Lakers add a star by the trade deadline and sign Leonard in offseason it's one of the reasons James joined.



02 Jul 2018 07:20:32
If the Spurs really play hardball and refuse to deal with the Lakers;

LA sends: Deng, Ingram, Kuzma, and Lonzo
LA receives: Jimmy Butler and Myles Turner

MIN sends: Jimmy Butler and Dieng
MIN receives: Kuzma, Lonzo, Deng, Bojan

IND sends: Myles Turner and Bojan


1.) 02 Jul 2018 07:29:04
Accidentally sent.

IND receives: Ingram and Dieng

The deal is the toughest for the Pacers I think but everyone is sky high on Ingram’s potential and they need a wing and good wings are the most expensive thing to get.

Jimmy has eyes to move to a big market next year too, plus he’s not a good fit next to Wiggins who’s already been invested in and they get a great haul for him.

LAL line up afterwards vs Warriors


Lance off the bench plus room for another big contract.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 07:48:43
unless myles turner miraculously becomes an all star, issa overpay for the lakers. but good for minn, lonzo would fit well with kat.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 09:29:25
I take Ingram over Turner

I like Turner, but we also have Sabonis and we can't play them both. Also Turner isn't improving much the last two years and Ingram has a higher sealing.

Someone has to trade for Eric Bledsoe. right?

Maybe Marcus Smart and the 2019 Clippers first round pick for Bledsoe if that Westbrook trade doesn't happen.


1.) 19 Jul 2016 05:38:39
I do agree that Marcus Smart is perfect for Phoenix age and fit wise beside Devin Booker.

2.) 19 Jul 2016 15:54:36
I just don't see the need for that swap. Bledsoe isn't that close to Westbrook in terms of production and Bledsoe also wouldn't come in right away and start over Thomas and would assume the same role as Smart has. Bledsoe is also smaller so he wouldn't be able to stack up as well against 2-guards like Smart does.

3.) 20 Jul 2016 07:48:55
Don't think Phx needs to rush to deal Bledsoe since he is under contract for like 3 more years. I think Smart is a very similar style pg just a younger, bigger version of Bledsoe. Both are very athletic and great defenders just at 26 Bledsoe is further along in his development and was putting up the best numbers of his career before going down to injury last season.

I think PHX could find a better deal next summer trading him to that is more desperate after they lose out of Westbrook.

He would be a significant upgrade for Celtics but even though he is one of best defensive pg in the league at 6ft 1 and not being great off ball as a shooter don't think he and IT could play together much making him a poor fit. They aren't giving up much tho so if I were them i'd take the deal and trust Stevens to figure how to make it work.

4.) 20 Jul 2016 15:18:57
Bledsoe and I. T playing together would be bad defensively. M. Smart has the height to guard some 2's.

I don’t think you should take reports that say we won’t trade player X seriously.

If the Spurs are going to play hardball I think you have to give Fultz instead of Covington.

I think the Wolves could get more value if they didn’t aim for draft picks. Draft pick prices are kind of inflated since half the league is tanking.
