76ers get CJ McCollum, Meyers Leonard, and #26 pick (via POR)

Blazers get Jimmy Butler, #39 and #50 picks (via PHI)

Bulls get #3 pick (via PHI), Jahlil Okafor, Justin Anderson, #20 pick (via POR), and OKC 2020 protected 1st rd pick (via PHI)


1.) 24 May 2017 03:41:04
Obviously the sixers say yes. Maybe send that #26 pick to the bulls instead of sixers. Philly still should say yes and it evens out the trade a bit.

2.) 24 May 2017 03:59:29
I like for the sixers.



23 May 2017 12:23:55

Lakers get Bismack Biyombo, #25 pick, and a future 2nd

Magic get Timofey Mozgov, D'Angelo Russell, and #28 pick.


1.) 23 May 2017 13:16:15
Nowhere close. Biyombo and Mozgov are basically a wash, so the Lakers give up Russell and a 2dn rounder to move up three spots in the late first round? That's insane.

2.) 23 May 2017 16:02:42
Agree with soxfan. The lakers get complete screwed here. Biyombo and mozgov are both horrible contracts.

3.) 23 May 2017 16:04:33
Biyombo is 24 years old. And the Lakers are the ones receiving the future 2nd rd pick.

4.) 23 May 2017 16:35:34
Wtf does age have to do with it? When you're trash, you're trash.

5.) 23 May 2017 17:06:27
Age, he's 24, has plenty of years left in the league and the potential to get much better. He's displayed that potential.

6.) 23 May 2017 17:58:48
Yeah, the problem is that the picks and bigs are a wash. So the trade basically comes down to Russell for a second rounder. That's terrible.

7.) 23 May 2017 18:49:17
I don't think Mozgov and Biyombo are a wash. They both are on bad contracts, but Biyombo is low end starter/ high end bench guy. Mozgov looks done and the age matters because they each have 3 years left on their contracts. Biyombo is still improving. Mozgov is regressing swiftly. I don't think there is a big enough difference to include Russell, but maybe one of the Lakers lesser prospects.

76ers realistic offseason

3- Josh Jackson (Kansas)

-Waive Gerald Henderson (non-guaranteed)

•Free Agency:
-Sign Patty Mills 2yr 30m
-Sign Tyler Zeller 1yr 6m
-Sign Jodie Meeks 1yr 6m

PG: Simmons, McConnell, Bayless
SG: Mills, Luwawu, Meeks
SF: Jackson, Covington, Anderson
PF: Saric, Holmes, Long
C: Embiid, Okafor, Zeller.


1.) 23 May 2017 01:08:06
Simmons at PG would be terrible on defense. Simmons would be better off splitting time between the forward spots with Saric and Covington (and Jackson if Philly drafts him) .

2.) 23 May 2017 02:12:59
Mills could cover point guards defensively (he is a bit small to cover sg anyway) and Jackson would probably be better suited for sg with Simmons covering sf defensively but playing the role of a traditional point guard on offense.

3.) 23 May 2017 04:19:55
Exactly what Jaw said. Just because he's listed at point guard doesn't mean he's guarding opposing point guards.

4.) 23 May 2017 09:27:58
I like the patty mills signing! He and Simmons could create chemistry for the Aussie national team as well.

5.) 23 May 2017 14:11:56
No interest in Meeks or Zeller taking up roster spots. They have 4 2nd rounders to fill those spots.



22 May 2017 12:13:23

Celtics get Jimmy Butler

Bulls get #1 pick and 2019 top 10 protected 1st (via BOS), Jahlil Okafor, Justin Anderson, #39 pick and a future 2nd (via PHI)

76ers get Avery Bradley and Tyler Zeller.


1.) 22 May 2017 14:51:37
That is ridiculous. Same answer as above.

2.) 22 May 2017 18:21:37
Celtics need another interior superstar scorer to go and unless the Pelicans are giving 1 up there is not 1 worth 1st overall pick.



21 May 2017 23:56:36
Possible Okafor trades for Philly

1. 76ers-Blazers

76ers get Meyers Leonard and #20 pick

Blazers get Jahlil Okafor, #39 and #50 picks

2. 76ers-Jazz

76ers get Boris Diaw and #24 pick

Jazz get Jahlil Okafor, #39 and #50 picks.


1.) 22 May 2017 02:23:35
Which one is better and more realistic?

2.) 22 May 2017 16:54:21
I think both would be agreed to by the other teams, but I'm not sure if that's the kind of return that Philly would be looking for. They know they're not getting top 10 picks, but I think they would be looking for a pick in the teens.

3.) 22 May 2017 17:18:10
The only issue I see with these is Okagor. He's a backup at either of these new locations. If he's willing to accept that, then he might as well stay in Philly behind embiid.

How could Boston acquire Porzingis in a trade without giving up the #1 pick?


1.) 24 May 2017 08:25:04
Throw together a ton of their picks and young players and possibly add to it by trading Bradley, Crowder, and/ or Thomas to a third team. To get Porzingis, I think a team would have to grossly overpay and he already has significant value.



19 May 2017 21:50:22

76ers get Avery Bradley, Jamal Murray, Tyler Zeller, and #13 pick (via DEN)
-Draft Harry Giles
PG: Murray, McConnell, Bayless
SG: Bradley, Luwawu
SF: Simmons, Covington, Anderson
PF: Saric, (Veteran), Giles
C: Embiid, Holmes, Zeller

Celtics get Kenneth Faried
-Sign Gordon Hayward
-Draft Markell's Fultz
PG: Thomas, Fultz, Rozier
SG: Hayward, Smart
SF: Crowder, Brown
PF: Faried, Yabusele, Mickey
C: Horford, Olynyk or Johnson

Nuggets get #3 pick and Jahlil Okafor
-Draft Josh Jackson
-Sign Kyle Lowry
-Re-sign Gallinari
PG: Lowry, Mudiay, Nelson
SG: Harris, Barton
SF: Jackson, Chandler
PF: Gallinari, Hernangomez, Arthur
C: Jokic, Okafor.


1.) 20 May 2017 02:28:08
I'm not a fan of Farieds game and while he helps Celtics on the boards he is a tweener and provides little else. Also his contract complicates signing Hayward. As is if Celtics renounced all FA (including Olynyk and Johnson, waived Jackson, Mickey and Zeller and left Yabusele overseas they would still be short about 1.5 mill of the max contract Hayward would command that would start at 30.6 mill in the first year. This is due in large part to the contract they'd have to give Fultz as the #1 pick and have to factor in empty roster charges (holds when a team has below 12 players) . Therefore, getting Faried is unrealistic especially if they wanted to keep Olynyk, Yabusele, Mickey and Johnson and Bradley will likely have to be traded regardless to clear cap for Hayward.

For 76ers giving up the #3 pick and a prospect like Jackson hurts but Murray would be a much better fit and they can add another piece with #13 pick. If they could get Bradley too that would just be icing on the cake.

I don't think Nuggets would be able to attract Lowry but moving Murray and #13 to move up and get #3 pick and Okafor wouldn't be a bad move for them. Jackson would be a great fit for them and has more upside than Murray. If Mudiay could take the next step they'd be a solid team with a lot of upside.

Hornets Dream Offseason

-Get lucky and land a top 3 pick in the lottery

•Draft Josh Jackson

-Trade MKG, Marvin Williams, and whoever is drafted 41st to LAC for Blake Griffin (3yr 80m)

-Decline Ramon Sessions team option

•Free Agency:
-Sign Sergio Rodriguez 2yr 13m
-Sign Thomas Robinson 1yr 3m
-Sign Alan Anderson 1yr minimum

PG: Walker, Rodriguez, Weber
SG: Batum, Bellinelli, Graham
SF: Jackson, Lamb, Anderson
PF: Griffin, Kaminsky, O'Bryant
C: Zeller, Plumlee, Robinson.




13 May 2017 18:21:52
Which big man trade target makes the most sense and is the most realistic for the Celtics?
-Kenneth Faried
-Gorgui Dieng
-Myles Turner
-Kristaps Porzingis


1.) 13 May 2017 18:33:54
Accidentally submitted before I was done, also meant to add:
-Nikola Vucevic
-Julius Randle
-Derrick Favors.

2.) 13 May 2017 19:41:15
If they could get Turner or Porzingas, they should do it and then make the rest of the front court fit them. Both look like guys who'll be stars for a long time. They would have to give up a ton for either though and I'm not sure Ainge would be willing to do that if New York or Indy would even be willing to even listen to offers.

I think for the price Vucivic probably would be a solid fit that they could probably get for less than he's worth.
Favors is a solid player that they could pick up in free agency and could provide a lot of what they need, but he's going to get severely overpayed, he is solid but isn't going to put the team over the top, and has a pretty spotty injury history.

Honestly, Jordan or Drummond would probably be their best bet. The Pistons were listening to offers for Drummond who's already a borderline allstar and is still really young. He can do everything the Celtics big men lack. He can help now and fit with all of their young guys dowm the line. He would probably be significantly cheaper than Turner and KP.
If the Clippers break up this offseason Jordan is a little older than Drummond but might be slightly cheaper and pretty much everything else I said about Drummond could be said of Jordan.

I think they would have to over pay for Randle and Dieng and neither provides everything they need. Faried couls probably be had cheap, but again doesn't provide everything the Celtics need.

3.) 14 May 2017 00:02:15
Dieng would be a good fit as he's youngish, good defensively and solid rebounder. Don't think his value would be more than a mid to late 1st.

Its worth trading for Porzingis or Turner because they are nearly as young as rookies and are still on rookie deals but have proven to be able to contribute at a high level. Unfortunately the price may be a bit too high since they'd have to give up 1 maybe both Brooklyn picks.

I'm not really a fan of Faried or Randle since although good rebounders they lack prototypical size. Favors kind of falls in this boat too and he has had injuries woes recently. However, besides Randle I think these guys would be relatively cheap to get so for the right price it could make sense.

I'm not sure Vucevic is the right style center for Boston (more offensive than defensive center) but I do like Vucevic and think some team should steal him from orlando.

As rkenne_16 Drummond and Jordan are probably the best options available. Both are elite rebounders which is the Celtics biggest issue. Their prices will be significant but not as much as Porzingis and Turner.

4.) 14 May 2017 01:44:38
Jaw, while I agree that's about what Dieng is worth, I don't think one first motivates Minnesota to move him. I also think while Vucivic isn't the elite defender that some of the other guys are he can provide rebouding, a decent presence in the paint, and his offensive game could take some of the pressure off IT. If they could get him cheap it might be worth it. Agree with everything else though.

5.) 14 May 2017 01:46:03
I don't like Drummond or Jordan for Boston though because of their free throw shooting. It hurts late in games, especially in playoffs.

6.) 14 May 2017 15:12:19
I don't think the free throws are as big of a deal now that they've made the rule change.

7.) 17 May 2017 02:47:55
I would say Turner. But would love to see Drummond there.



13 May 2017 18:19:18
Who is a realistic second star sidekick to James Harden the Rockets could target?


1.) 13 May 2017 19:53:01
It's fairly hard to think of a scenario where they end up with a 2nd star without losing mutliple starters and most of their future draft picks. The team isn't very deep and already capped out. So I'm not sure there is a deal that would bring a super star to them that makes sense. Unless Dantoni is willing to bring Melo in, which seems unlikely.

Who's Detroit's Center then?

Not bad. Knicks could then trade Melo, draft Fox or Jackson at #3, and sign a 3pt shooter at shooting guard.

I agree and some alternate options that I'd like to see are CJ McCollum, Avery Bradley, and Allen Crabbe.

Biyombo is 24 years old. And the Lakers are the ones receiving the future 2nd rd pick.
