Rockets send: Brandon Knight and 2019 first round pick
Rockets receive: Willie Cauley-Stein

A replacement for Capela while hurt that’s also an expiring deal and getting off Knight is worth giving up a first round pick for.

Kings send: B. Bogdonavic, K. Koufos, WCS
Kings receive: Andre Drummond, Zaza P.

Pistons receive: Hous 2019 1st, Bogdonavic, Koufos, B Knight.

Kings: Get an elite rebounder who can play fast and offers a presence in the paint and as a rim runner. Money spent on Drummond would likely be less effective in FA due to market size.
Pistons: Gain a first round pick, a sharp shooting wing, expiring contracts that offer financial flexibility instead of paying the max for a player who doesn’t play like it and doesn’t mesh well with his superior front court mate.

Mavs send DSJ and Dwight Powel
Raptors send OG Anunoby and Fred VanVleet.

Raptors get a longterm plan for eventual departure of Lowry in 2020 (mutual parting of way, Lowry feels betrayed by Masai, Raps don’t want to pay. Can run PG 2nd until Rn and can cover Lowry taking some nights off. Raps have depth at the wing to
trade and upgraded ghd pg

Mavs get spacing and defense and a guard to play with Luka.


1.) 17 Jan 2019 12:47:34
Too much for the Raps to give up. Van Fleet is considerably better than DSJ, and OG has far more long term value to the club than Powell.

3 way trade
Jazz Send: Dante Exum
Jazz Receive: KCP and S Mykhailiuk and a 2020 2nd rounder

Magic Send: N. Vucevic
Magic receive: Dante Exum

Lakers send: KCP and Mykhailiuk, 2020 2nd round pick
Lakers receive: N Vucevic

Magic get desperately needed PG with length. Lakers get floor spacing big who’s having a career year and has an expiring deal. Utah cash in on a backup PG by demoting Rubio to bench, being able to play 1 Donovan Mitchell 2 Korver 3 KCP 4. Jingles 5. Gobert. That means getting the ball in the best players hand and surrounding him with shooters. Jazz get some nice side pieces too.


1.) 08 Jan 2019 13:36:35
Jazz could sign KCP with cap best summer and not lose a lottery pick signed to a friendly 2nd deal.

2.) 09 Jan 2019 06:41:56
None of the pieces you mention are enough for the jazz to give up Exum.



04 Jan 2019 08:31:30
The Ringer has been discussing a lot of Ben Simmons trades recently. A lot of analysts have discussed long term fit and today BS and KOC threw this idea out:

76ers: Ben Simmons, Chandler, one young guard, and a first rounder

I wanted to come up with my own packages for Ben Simmons and see if any of them felt right.

6ers: Ben Simmons, Shamet, and Fultz
Jazz: Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles

6ers: Ben Simmons
Knicks: Frank Ntilikina, Kevin Knox, 2019 unprotected 1st

6ers: Ben Simmons and Fultz
Heat: Josh Richardson and Justice Winslow

6ers: Ben Simmons, Fultz, W. Chandler
Clippers: D. Gallinari, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander,
and Pat Beverly.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 11:42:43
I think you’re undervaluing Ben. If he was really being shopped, you’re looking at borderline all star and a lottery pick just to start the conversation.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 14:01:54
Border line All-Star that is difficult to build around. Everyone else on the team has to be shooters (including the center) so that Simmons can operate in the paint most of the time.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 15:32:43
Yeah that’s why I thought Knicks would work pretty well and they’d be giving 3 recent first round picks that all have potential (there is a divisionsl factor there though) . I think that Clippers would work well too but people underrate Gallinari IMO. I honestly don’t think I’m underrating him, that Jazz deal at the very least is paying a pretty penny for him.

4.) 04 Jan 2019 16:57:29
I would keep Simmons, add the best defensive, shooting, mobile PF I could afford and get. With Butler, Reddick, Simmons 1-3,4 is covered just not all at once. Williams has another year next season in CHA, maybe a chandler swap is worth checking into? Williams has been great as a 3 and D, PF this season. Smart, veteran player.

5.) 04 Jan 2019 17:03:54
Knicks is probably the most likely of the bunch and I don't think Gallinari is overrated as much as he is overpaid but I rarely see the clippers play.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 18:12:37
Btec, a Kevin Love type?

7.) 04 Jan 2019 19:05:35
Fredman, not his salary, and not his perimeter defense and mobility. For the Sixers anyway.

8.) 04 Jan 2019 19:49:54
Oh, the guy they traded away. Saric.



02 Jan 2019 14:05:20
Pelicans send: Anthony Davis, Solomon Hill, and E’Twaun Moore
Wizards send: Bradley Beal, Otto Porter jr, 2019 1st round pick unprotected, 2021 first round pick top 2 protected

For the Pelicans: I think this is an offer that tops any offer the Lakers can make and any offer the Celtics can make that excludes Tatum. They would get a star under contract (who may actually be happy to be there) who can space the floor (biggest weakness) and handle primary ball handler responsibilities. A quality wing and what is likely to be a very early pick this year plus the ‘21 pick could be a very early pick if Davis still left DC before that season.

For D. C. you get Anthony Davis and become the immediate favorite to resign him and you only give up players who want out of your team. You’re able to save a little bit of money immediately and Hill’s 12 million is expiring. You could enter the 2019 FA class as a big market with money to spend and AD to play with. Landing someone like Tobias Harris would create a contender.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 14:29:09
That offer is actually worse than what Celtics or Lakers can offer. And even a reunion with Wall does not keep Davis in DC.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 14:57:36
So, you pretty much gut, the wizards. Puts Davis in the same situation as he is in now. Davis won't resign there because he wants to win championships. The wizards would be no closer than the Pels. aside from the fact that it's an easier road to the finals in the East.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 15:01:56
Beal is a better asset Jaylon Brown, BI or Kuzma and the draft pick is likeky going to be much higher than anything BOS offers. It’s a little different of an offer because it keeps NO in a situation to win now instead of a rebuild, but when there’s this much buzz about the team moving to a different city that’s a good thing. They may not survive a rebuild.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 15:13:19
And if Davis walked on the Wiz, who cares they wanted to blow it up anyway. This is a shot at having the best player at a position for the next 5 years. Worth the risk IMO.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 15:21:29
Not sure that’s worse than what the C’s and Lakers can offer. Yes, they have more young talent, and in the C’s case, more picks to work with, but getting a true All-Star in Beal is more than the best player they’ll get from the other two. If they’re rebuilding, the other two have better deals to offer. If they’re retooling, this deal may be the best one to take.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 15:46:14
If this is the day before the draft and Washington gets the #1 pick, this could make sense. I do think that Beal, #1 pick, future first, and Porter is better than anything the Lakers can offer. It's probably equal to a deal centered around Tatum. That #1 pick this year is incredibly valuable.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 15:48:00
terrible deal Davis wouldn't resign with wiz. why would he all they have is Wall who's out for the season now. davis would be great with LBJ and playing with him is always winning mode.

Lakers should trade Ball, Ingram, and kuzma for davis and Hill

then Lakers sign others in the off season to round out the core of davis james and hart.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 15:55:31
I don't get why the Celts wouldn't include Tatum if they want Davis? Seems like a foregone conclusion already if they are serious suitors. Is that a quality Rumor on Tatum? I honestly haven't heard that anywhere except on here?

9.) 02 Jan 2019 16:10:10
@BTEC They would in a minute. And i think the C's fans on here know it too.

10.) 02 Jan 2019 16:38:43
BTEC - If Tatum stands between Davis and the Celtics, Tatum had better learn to like eating gumbo.

11.) 02 Jan 2019 16:53:49
Kinda what I figured.

12.) 02 Jan 2019 17:16:16
I think Boston would only include tatum If Davis sign extension. Everything points to davis want L. A. 3 simple things right here just bought a house in L. A., signed with James agent and idolized james growing up So y not play with him in a big market.

If I'm Boston I'm moving Irving and picks for Davis right now.
Rozier/ smart
Heyward/ brown
Tatum/ brown
Davis/ morris
Horford/ baynes

They played better without Irving and add Davis there favorites I think they could win back to back then davis still signs with Lakers. Cause it's where he wants to play with James.

13.) 03 Jan 2019 01:17:41
Doesn’t matter if Boston will do Irving and picks for Davis. Pelicans certainly won’t.

The second best player on the team is a pg. arguably better seeing as he is elite defense. So what’s the point?

14.) 03 Jan 2019 05:54:56
Who said Irving was going to pelicans. Only a kid with a low iq would think that. I said Boston trade Irving and picks for Davis but never said anything else. Y would pelicans want expiring Irving.

15.) 03 Jan 2019 14:21:34
For those who say that it’s terrible deal for the Wiz because of a bare cupboard, at least the Wiz will be a major market with 2 superstars and a bit of cap space. Like I said, if it doesn’t work out, they’d blow it up anyway.

I don’t think the Wiz have to have the first pick for the Pels to accept, I think this would a trade deadline day deal.

As far as leaving Tatum out, there’s a lot of people on that. Guys like Sam Veccine at the Athletic to the Ringer’s coverage. I think the idea is that the Celtics can beat the Lakers offer w/ o including Tatum, but maybe if this offer came out then this would force Tatum to be on the table. But another thing to remember is the Celtics can’t trade for AD till July due to the franchise player rule, so maybe this happens before they can actually submit an offer.

Real Potential Blockbuster Here

Magic send Dakari Johnson

Clippers send Jaquan Evans.

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.

Dallas and Wiz say no. Dallas just getting older and more expensive, albeit better. Wiz wouldn’t even consider that offer in my opinion, Beal is worthy of several major pieces, not just 2 expirings and a meh future 1st.

@Fredman I’m pretty sure this was the deal that was actually agreed to by the Heat that got cancelled because Thibbs went back and asked for more.

Still, I’m not sure the Heat do it.

Ntilikina is everyone’s favorite player rn for the defense but there’s a reason he’s not playing for the Knicks. It’s because his offense is simply so bad that he can’t be trusted on the court, I heard his offense described today as “Fultz but w/ o the mystery. ”

An expiring is worth more than Hardaway and DSJ is worth way more than Frank, IMO Mavs should say no.

Not sure about the first deal, but the second one looks about right although you need to specialize the year of the pick, if it has protections, and if it’s originally someone else’s pick. Personally I think the Miami 2021 1st is likely the one that would be in the deal.

I think this offer is made and is a real contender.
