LA has $43 mil in cap space(five or take)
Legit strategy: Sign DeAndre Jordan, Jimmy Butler, Seth Curry, Nik Stauskas. Resign KCP, Rondo and Mcgee afterwards. Try the trade for AD again. May be more attractive with the 10th pick, BI, Ball and Kuzma.
You're looking at:

As a Laker fan, I would prefer Klay over Butler but I'm realistic. Either way, Lebron could let two others carry the offensive load while he facilitate. Davis would be the obvious heir to the throne. After some time, he'll be able to fix the roster like he wants it....Lebron gets 2 more rings before he retires.


1.) 01 Apr 2019 12:50:55
U said realistic 🤬.

2.) 01 Apr 2019 17:20:14

3.) 01 Apr 2019 18:00:18
This is realistic. On Fantasy Island

Also. You won't be getting Davis.

4.) 01 Apr 2019 18:08:17
DJ and butler will cost over 45 just those 2.

5.) 01 Apr 2019 19:35:45
Take out jordan And kcp.

6.) 06 Apr 2019 14:27:17
Irving and AD are the only players I can see playing with James in LA, and I don't see either ending up there in '19-'20. Maybe Irving, but it's not very good odds.



06 Mar 2019 20:07:04
This may seem strange BUT is it possible for the Lakers to trade LBJ? Hear me out...The Lakers are on the verge to lose more games than they did last year. They have Ingram, Ball, Hart, Kuzma and a max slot coming open......
Could a team like Denver, that "should " be in "win now" mode next season send Harris, Porter Jr, Barton, Hernangomez and an unprotected 1st to LA for Lebron?
I'm a Laker fan BTW... That's something that a star free agent can buy into. Let's say we can swing for Durant and Thompson ....

Durant/Porter Jr

With all those assets, you could possibly find a trade partner for that 3rd star.


1.) 06 Mar 2019 22:20:31
Lebron has to much power to trade without there being huge problems. He could threaten them with clutch, he can threaten to retire, and he could just trash the team that the Lakers were in talks with to the media. Not to mention that any team that trades for him has to have enough left over
To immediately make a run next year. I just don’t see anyone giving up enough for the Lakers to pull the trigger and that’s even if Lebron doesn’t intentionally drive his own value down. His market value is probably a lot closer to a guy like Jimmy Butler than AD.

2.) 06 Mar 2019 23:11:13
Why would Durant and Thompson leave Golden State for a LeBron less Laker team?

3.) 06 Mar 2019 23:35:08
Is it possible? Technically, yes. But actually no. If the Lakers trade LBJ, the Lakers will never be able to sign for another Klutch represented player again. Period.



15 Jan 2019 20:23:09
DSJ and Matthews for Ball, KCP and Wagner.

Ball, Rondo, and James are too similar to make a successful playoff push. Substitute DSJ and Matthews with Ball and KCP, you have a young, athletic less passive scorer and a knock down shooter that comes off the books in the summer and may come back cheaper. Not to mention, Luka and Ball would be a better fit

NOW suppose every Laker comes back, you look like

And salary cap!

Hate to say but this shows Lakers have to unload 2 or 3 of the young guys for an above average, 30 or younger player(s)

Dame for Kuzma, Ingram, Stevenson picks and whatever it takes to get it done. Rewrite the roster


Durant or Kawhi takes the keys of the franchise from day one with a side kick in Lillard. Unlimited options. No pressure on DSJ....could very well be the hidden gem in this lineup.


1.) 15 Jan 2019 21:07:43
Even more now, I don't see Portland letting Lillard go any time soon, due to ownership uncertainty. Especially not to the Lakers.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 21:50:50
All I can say (sarcastically) is wow. First you say this, "Not to mention, Luka and Ball would be a better fit. " Better fit doesn't mean a good fit. Doncic needs a Klay Thompson type next to him in the back court. I don't see either trade happening because I don't see rival GMs wanting to "help" Lebron via trades. Just don't see it.



02 Jan 2019 16:17:29
Let build the Cavs back into contention in 3-5 years....1st trade:
J.R and Clarkson to Memphis
Parsons, Green and a 1st to Cavs
Works for two teams going in 2 different directions. Memphis would benefit from players like this come time to push to the playoffs. Cavs can see how these pieces blend with younger talent. If it doesn't work, cap space is a beautiful second option....

Love to Denver
Lyles, Porter and Plumlee and a 1st to Cavs
The Joker and Love would be great together. It would make the game so much easier for players like Murray and Harris...not to mention when Thomas gets healthy.
Porter is the real target for the Cavs. If healthy, would have been the 1st pick....Plumlee expiring contract is a blessing and Lyles is an underrated stretch 4 that needs a place to call his own... So when the smoke clears, Cleveland looks like

Porter Jr/Osman

Not to mention 3 1sts and tons of cap space. Imagine the possibility to draft Barrett and Porter reaches potential...Ideally, a pass first pg and spend some money on a 3-D wing and the Cavs would be top 4 in the East in the next 3-5 years if not sooner.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 16:52:37
Story about Parsons refusing to go to the g league yesterday pretty much summed up what the Griz have in mind I'm pretty sure. Waive. Can't see them taking a loss on a pick to unload Parsons if they aren't even playing him when he can play.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 16:52:42
So Love coming off the bench behind Millsap in Denver?

3.) 02 Jan 2019 17:16:59
Let's not. and say we did. Lol
How does Cleveland get a first rd pick and players for JR Smith and Clarkson? Not happening.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 17:34:09
Both of these trades are foolish. Teams aren’t giving up 1sts and youth for either broken flawed players or a super over paid injury riddled player. It’s just nonsense.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 18:16:27
The Cavs should pass on that first trade. Parsons contract is to bad to just get a future 1st. I’ve seen that Denver has interest in love and that would be a great deal for the Cavs, but I’m not sure how Love really fits on that team.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 19:06:50
I don’t see Denver giving up on Porter before seeing him play, and in neither case should the Cavs expect to get back a first in these deals.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 19:33:50
If Love did go to Denver, I see a Milsap trade in the summer. Different game plans you can run with Love. obviously as a stretch 4 and let Joker create from the inside, both bang inside against teams that struggle in transition, both can give each other rest cause they have similar skill sets. Harris and Murray become a top 3 backcourt with this move. everybody compliments everybody.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 19:37:14
The Memphis move, they need better floor spacing and if they can unload Parsons, giving up a pick between 15-20 isn’t bad at all especially if the pieces they get can help towards and even in the playoffs. Clarkson is a good change of pace type of player and JR gives u a wild card.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 20:05:38
JoeB, Remember that the Lakers got a first rounder for Nance Jr and Clarkson. And Smith is essentially a $4 Mil expiring contract.

10.) 02 Jan 2019 20:13:02
Millsap expires with a team option for 30mil next summer, its pretty safe to say DEN is not going to pay that. Probably sign him for around 20mil 2 years in the summer. He'd be a bargain if he stays healthy. PF who shoots the three, plays D is valuable to a contender in the range and age Milsap is.

11.) 02 Jan 2019 21:52:00
I guess if they could get Millsap on a decent deal they could make it work. A rotation at the 4 and 5 of Love, Jokic, and Millsap would be pretty good. You could always have two of them on the court the court at all times m and it wouldn’t be to hard to give them each around 30 minutes. When Jokic is off the court, Love could do some of the same stuff that Jokic does with facilitating the offense.

12.) 03 Jan 2019 03:56:17
Jokic, Plumlee, Millsap, Lyles, Lydon, MPJ is deep and affordable frontline. Love would mess that up. They are 1st in the West injured, its much better for the Cavs in any deal with the Nuggets for Love because of what the Nuggets would have to give up. Depth.



05 Feb 2018 13:45:04
I'll start it.....Why isn't the Cavs considering trading Lebron? Throw the "trading a legend is a no-go" out of the window.... If your holding on to the BK pick just in case he leaves, why not and more assets with that pick instead of being left high and dry? Of course he has the say so on where he goes so why not this offer

Wiz gets Lebron
Cavs gets Porter, Meeks, Frazier and 2 future 1sts...

Wiz gets DJ
Clips gets Gortat, Smith and a second

Buyout season....grab some vets to fill the roster. Haven't studied the numbers but with both incoming stars for Wiz free agents after this year and Porter salary out the way, they can do some shopping before they re-sign them..... They can go all in a grab a Boogie or 2-3 nice role players..But Boogie would be DOPE!!!!

with Oubre and Morris off the bench!

Cleveland starts the process over because no way, shape, or form they can mold what they have into a long term situation....Porter is in a contract for a while and the picks is what's important...Build for the future


1.) 05 Feb 2018 14:16:49
He has a not trade clause and he has repeatedly said he won't waive it. The only way they're getting assets out of him is in a sign and trade at the end of the season. Given their salary cap situation and the teams that James will be looking to go to, I'm not sure there will be a s and t on the table that will make much sense for them though. Unless the Lakers would be willing to give up a ton to get rid of Deng.

2.) 05 Feb 2018 14:41:46
I was thinking the same.
LBJ should tell Cleveland what he wants.
He already asked them to wait and left to Miami. he can't do that a second time.

3.) 05 Feb 2018 15:03:25
This is so stupid. How can you pay your entire staring lineups 25 M plus?

4.) 05 Feb 2018 18:11:08
Was thinking what about salary cap.

That same package that got the Pistons Blake would have been enough for Love. Love fits Detroit better because he is a stretch 4. Stan had so much success with Hedo, Anderson at the 4. Could have been the perfect fit. Which is why I don't see him in Detroit much longer. Blake will put fans in the seats but not wins in the win column. Which makes you wonder: Are owners more behind super teams than players?

I'm about to bring it together....Griffin was traded simply to create a super team in LAC. DJ is a sure trade. So is Williams. Now if they can traded to both or separately to attain 1 or 2 lottery picks this year, watch out. No matter the return, the Clippers are in position to give GS a run next year.

Beverly, Bradley, Harris, Harrell, Dekker, Gallinari, and Rivers and 3 lottery picks to include their own, is a good start when you have the flexibility to sign 2 max contracts. In comes Lebron and PG13. 2 of those picks can net you Ayton from Arizona. A lineup of


.....Would be SICK!! And the crazy thing about it, it's not far fetched! Some people reach on here. Just do the Bradley resigning after PG and Bron sign and it's possible. GS would be in trouble with this team......But with how strategic this move could and would be, it's hard not to believe other GMs and owners didn't have anything to do with a team being built to challenge the Warriors. Just my opinion. Thoughts...


1.) 31 Jan 2018 21:19:11
I don't think that Jordan or Williams will net you a pick high enough to get Ayton unless you are super lucky in the draft lottery or you are trading all 3 picks that they will have for the number 1 pick.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 22:55:51
Ayton is the best option but there’s quite a few options at C in this class. The way that ball bounces, can’t count it out. Magic got a bad record. you can’t see them attaching their pick to a bad contract or two for DJ and Lou Williams? If they both walk, they can at least position themselves to have role players and develop something with what they have. Adding a high draft pick with no identity isn’t the smart thing. Take every bust and you’ll see that their style of play didn’t fit the talent. I.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 21:24:41
There is no way that the new Magic ownership is trading a lottery pick again for someone that will just walk like they did 2 years ago for Ibaka.



18 Jan 2018 02:12:23
Cavs, Jazz, Spurs, Raptors:
Cavs get: Ibaka, Favors, Rubio, Danny Green

Jazz get: Love, Shumpert

Spurs get: Nogueira, Crowder

Raptors get: Thompson, Sefolosha

Cavs, Rockets.
Cavs get Anderson and a 1st round draft pick
Rockets get: Smith, Frye

Cavs lineup:

PG: Rubio/Thomas/Rose
SG: Green/Wade/Korver
SF: James/J.Green/Osman
PF: Ibaka/Anderson
C: Favors/Zizic

Not to mention, still have the BK pick and a 1st from Houston. Perfect blend of youth and vets. Won't make it out the East but need to use assets before they lose them




17 Nov 2017 15:31:27
Steve Kerr made a statement about the Celtics dominating the East in the years to come, maybe starting as early as this year...(in a nutshell). So I like playing devils advocate. They're well coached, youth is on their side BUT, the Cavs could be on to something. I'm the same person that's been saying trade Lebron because he's a goner but now that I look at it, that would be crazy! I was saying build around(best case) IT, Thompson, Love and (Porter Jr) BK pick...But add Lebron to that mix. But I would trade Jr and Shump for Burks and Johnson from Utah. Any package netting those two in return. Johnson is old but he has an expiring contract and can come back for the vet min if the situation works out. Burks out of the rotation in Utah and could be a perfect fit with IT in the backcourt for years to come.
This roster keeps Boston at bay for 3-5 years and that's being generous to Boston because Porter is a beast. Even as early as next year if the Cavs draft him, you can build around him immediately and Lebron wouldn't be mad. Stretch 4 in Love, defensive big in TT, killer instinct with IT and ultimate playmaker in Lebron: perfect surroundings to groom a superstar.
I always said if the C's gave up that pick, it should've been for AD23. After the Lebron (playing) era and all the veterans that comes along with him, no telling who's going to want to come on board. Lebron in a front office spot immediately after retiring wouldn't be a bad move. He has ties with so many young players as is....that's why I had him going to L.A to learn that side from Magic but he could figure it on the fly cause this opportunity is too good to pass


1.) 17 Nov 2017 19:14:33
There is no way LeBron stays. And to get to your point that players want to play with him, I think that is beginning to disappear, other then his buddys (CP3, Melo, Wade) . Irving has shown so far this year that he doesn't need LeBron. I personally feel that LeBron isn't able to carry a team like he used to. He needs another player that he can defer to, to help lead the offense. Obviously LeBron is still LeBron right now but I think he is starting to wear down a little with all the basketball he's played over the years. He needs a second superstar and since he wants to win another ring he is going to need to leave Cleveland to get that superstar.

2.) 17 Nov 2017 22:07:51
Too early in the season to make decisions like that Cleveland need Thomas to be playing first to see we're they are at . As for Boston remember these guys brown Tatum, Smart, Rozier are improving big time and in 2 to 4 years they are peaking not to mention Kyrie still only 25.

3.) 17 Nov 2017 23:07:46
Irving doesn’t need Lebron. His skill set fits better with a young, running, athlete squad like what they have in Boston. He saw the opportunity and knew that the Cavs were only getting slower and was relying more on experience come playoff time. You saw when Solver made the announcement about resting players, Kyrie was the first to chime in. He’s young. He want to push the tempo. That’s his style.

Dallas and the Pistons were the only two teams to win a “ship” with 1 or less superstars. You right. The talent pool makes it impossible to do it by yourself. But come playoff time, the only thing I worry about Lebron is his free throw percentage.

The wear and tear will come down once JR and Shump find a new home and IT comes in. They need a change of scenery. It’s easy to get complacent after 1 ring and it clearly shows. When TT comes back, the D will get better even though it wasn’t that great when he was there.

I’m a Lakers fan and would love for Bron to come with DMC and PG13 but at this point in his career, winning means more for his brand than location. The only player that applies to. Take any other superstar and put them in L. A, endorsements, brand building, the whole nine. Zo can score 2 points but can have 6 highlights on sports center while Clarkson or Kuzma can have combined 50 and not one shout out. lol That’s what L. A does. But as long as Lebron keeps winning in Cleveland, he will be at the top looking down. That’s why he’s the king. He’s fine where he is unless that pick gets traded or the Celtics win the East without Gordon. Obviously I don’t see either happening.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 03:36:44
The only way the Cavs should give up the Brooklyn pick is if it's in a deal for a high level defensive center and another perimeter defender or for Cousins. The Celtics have looked good so far, but in the playoffs everyone will be playing defense and without Hayward, the Celtics are in a similiar position as they were last year. Lebron leaving isn't a forgone conclusion. There just isn't a clear destination without a lot happening and no matter how the Cavs have looked at times (they're on a 4 game winning streak with a ton of injuries and while still not looking interested for long stretches) it's not like the Cavs aren't stacked.



02 Nov 2017 16:32:29
I know it's early and IT haven't even stepped on the floor but it looks like the thrill is gone in Cleveland. Me personally, I think it's time to build around Love, IT, and the BK pick. My keepers: Rose, Green and Crowder.....everyone else can go. How would you fill the roster?


1.) 02 Nov 2017 18:32:40
If they are going to rebuild then love should go on the marker for picks by time they rebuild love will be too old even at his best he could get wolves to the playoffs.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 19:27:14
Couldn't get wolves to playoffs.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 19:46:20
Are you saying trade Lebron? We're less than 10 games into the season. The Cavs will be fine. There biggest problems looks to be lack of effort, bad conditioning, and lack of continuity. 2 of those will remedy themselves and given the amount of quality veterans the Cavs have, I think the effort will pick up after the other two improve. If they can get another high level 3 and D player like Green, Beverly, Covington, Or Bradley and a high level center like Gasol, Cousins or Jordan, they will be a huge threat to the Warriors. On paper they have the assets to do it as well.

4.) 03 Nov 2017 04:33:24
^aka the cavs need to make some really good trades if they want a chance at gs. but give them whatever u may think is the best combo of the aforementioned wing and big, and they still probably lose (but at least the finals would be more exciting than last year) . i think the cavs are stuck, this killed themself this summer (even if they did make the best of the kyrie debacle. ) their best chance was trading for butler/ george, but seriously the warriors are so good, it would be hard for me to choose a team made up of the whole rest of the league’s best players against them lol.

5.) 04 Nov 2017 00:11:37
Dona, they probably do need to make some moves to compete with the Warriors. Like you said, they are insanely talented, although, I don't buy that they're undefeatable. If you play them physically in the playoffs, you can manhandle them. On the offensive end, you can make them pay on the boards and in the paint and on the defensive end, you get their shooters out of rhythm and force them to turn it over. Also, with as stacked as the top teams are in the NBA, if one of Durant, Curry, or Green goes down, the Warriors are done.

6.) 06 Nov 2017 06:59:43
While waiting for IT, TT, and Iman. The team needs to play a good perimeter defense. Love needs to be more than just a rebounder.
Crowder needs to get involve in the offense.
I don't expect Rose and Wade in offense but they need to blend on team chemistry like Parker and Ginobli do in Spurs.
Im very dissapoonted with Coach Lue, if he still lose he needs to step down asap.



25 Oct 2017 15:31:43
Bledsoe, Cavs, and Philly.....I'm reading and all I can say is: These guys must have made these moves on 2K and think it would translate to the real NBA. Bledsoe. Request a trade is one thing, but denying it and subliminally asking again says a lot about character. A large market team isn't a good fit. Take talents somewhere low key and work with less distractions. Working wonders for D-Russ in BK. Even though BK is a nice market, rather small compared to L.A. Maybe a team like Denver, Utah, or Chicago.
Cavs.....stand pat. It will all come together. Defense is there. Shooting is there, scoring is there, bench production is there. Stay healthy, block out the noise and I have y'all beating the Warriors in 6. They have the assets to get anyone they want really but at the risk of there future. I see everyone coming back after they win. Lebron signing a 1-PO after everyone else re-signs and drafting a stud with that BK pick. Cleveland and GS do the best out of 5 and both teams break up their bands and make the league unpredictable again.
Philly: Time to start shaping the identity. Fultz was drafted to be a cornerstone of the franchise. But they are running into the same problem OKC did when it came to Harden, Russ, and KD. Fultz will be the odd man out. It'll be easy to say Embiid because of his health but if he miraculously stays healthy for 10-12 seasons, it will be hell to pay cause that's a bad dude. So here's the dilemma: Have a #1 pick buy into coming off the bench or use as trade bait to find shooters and 3-D players? I say trade to let him build his confidence. Example of what I mean: Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones in OKC. They basically were used to come in for KD....Name a backup for any superstar that made contributions after leaving their shadows? I'll wait. Jones and Lamb were easily slated to be avg or maybe above avg players. Hopefully Fultz get his shot elsewhere...Before anyone says anything, I know he backs up Bayless but who runs the offense....Simmons. They could be like Lebron and Kyrie but it's too early in both of their careers to make that kind of sacrifice


1.) 25 Oct 2017 18:02:31
I disagree with you on Bledsoe. The team is terrible and at this point it's affecting his value. The organization has been dangling him in trade talks for going on two years. I don't blame him for asking out. I think he backtracked to help the Suns honestly. The more dire the situation sounds for them, the less likely they'll get any where close to equal value for him.

The Cavs could challenge GS, but the chances that they beat them are pretty slim if GS is even mildly healthy. If the right guy comes available, Cleveland should pull the trigger on the Brooklyn pick, but trading it for a moderate upgrade would be counterproductive.

OKC traded Harden because of cheap ownership. They weren't at risk of hitting the hard cap even if they signed their big 3 and Ibaka. They didn't want to pay luxury tax. After years of tanking to get where they are now there, I doubt Philly can afford to disappoint their fan base by not going into the luxury and that's atleast 4 years away. It's not a problem at all right now. Especially given the clauses in Embiid's contract. Fultz's injury is really keeping him from being a decent player. They should sit him and let him heal.

Eric Bledsoe would be one that become a solid starter from out of CP's shadow. Reggie Jackson. Its hard when the rule is that they have to leave. Typically once the organization just chooses the younger player over the older one if they are good or just has one play a different position.

I like that for all teams. Makes no sense for the Knicks to get 2 superstars and have 2 young players with so much potential. It will help Young development into more of a playmaker and NO gets rid of bad contracts and gets a fresh start with solid pieces.

That’s a nice trade for the Suns. But Oubre is a good fit down there. It would be cheaper and better in the long run to trade down. You have the Knicks, Cavs, Bulls and Hawks that would definitely throw in some assets for that #1 pick. With the greatest weakness on the Suns roster being the PG and Morant, Alexander-Walker, and Garland on the board. Some serious trades to consider:
Hawks receive #1
Suns receive #4 and #7

Knicks receive #1
Suns receive #3, Ntilikina and 2 future 1st round draft picks

Bulls receive #1
Suns receive W. Carter, #2, Dunn

I like Conley but $30 mil a year on an aging pg doesn’t seem smart. especially when you are constructed to contend in the next few years.

I like the Bulls trade:

Morant/ Dunn
Booker/ Ross
Oubre/ Jackson
Mirotic/ Bridges/ Bender
Ayton/ Carter/ Holmes

This team is straight! Enough floor spacing. This happens, I might be a Suns fan.
