The Suns turn that down. I feel like they could do better for Bledsoe without including Bender.

How many times does phoenix have to turn this down before people get the pic. Their not giving up Jackson. They turned it down on draft night, and over the summer.


2.) 16 Aug 2017 07:00:46
Shump and Frye are not selling the Suns on giving up Jackson, period.

I think Kyrie will go off on his new team if traded because everyone is calling him crazy for wanting to be traded and I think he'll prove them wrong and go off and play crazy good.

NBA

1.) 06 Aug 2017 07:10:14
Not sure I see this. Kyrie is an elite scorer but the rest of his game is lacking and he got plenty of looks alongside Lebron and they'll likely be of higher quality than he'll get on a new team. I don't doubt the rest of his game will improve with time but I don't see Irving going to another level and being dramatically better than he is now, an elite scorer that isn't that great of a playmaker for his teammates and doesn't give much defensively. I'm not sure what type of leader he is (he strikes me as a quiet type but that could be since he was under Lebron's shadow and he can grow into his role regardless) so I'm not sure if he'll be able to bring his teammates to another level right away either.

Long-term I think getting away from Lebron is the best for Kyrie's development and maturation as a basketball player but I don't think we'll see considerable improvements right away.


2.) 06 Aug 2017 14:15:25
As the primary play maker, I think you see him average a few more assists a game. It's possible you see a small uptick in points, but I think you see his efficiency go down. The Cavs offense is designed to give Irving and James space inside. I don't see him getting that kind of space any where else or the open looks he gets from the outside playing beside Lebron.


3.) 06 Aug 2017 14:54:20
This is all false. His points won't go up as well as averaging a few more assists. He is solely a scoring threat. He is a below average play maker for teammates. Stop trying to see it differently. This is why he is t getting a knock you out franchise player deal. He's a great player. But he absolutely isn't top 10

No defense. No passing. No rebounding. Great scorer. Not much else. Hell. At least melo rebounds decently lol.


4.) 06 Aug 2017 15:13:45
He was 17th in assists for pgs this year as the 2nd ball handler for the Cavs and his best year for assists was the year before Lebron came back. He's not an elite level passer, but he's a solid passer. As the primary playmaker for a team you would have to assume those numbers go up. Irving isn't a top 10 player, but is definitely top 20.


5.) 06 Aug 2017 21:15:56
He is 28th among pg in assists per 48.
27 in assists to turnovers.

Among PGs, he is a below average laser and play maker. You can't be a top 20 player if the main function of your position you aren't good at.

Not to mention you are looking at only point guards. The assists leader was a shooting guard.

He is a TERRIBLE defender.

You can't be a top 20 and play only one side of the ball.

I love Irving. Would want him on my team. He is NOT a franchise cornerstone. No matter how much you try and say he is. He is a one dimensional player. That's it.


6.) 07 Aug 2017 04:57:30
Hes the perfect sidekick to a superstar and will be found out next year if trying to lead a team!

Hopefully at least this will force k love to be the beast he was in Minnesota.

Ok nostradumas, stay off the drugs.


2.) 03 Aug 2017 13:25:26
If Philly stays relatively healthy it can get the 8 spot. If Sixers stay very healthy they can finish as high as 5th.


3.) 03 Aug 2017 15:04:24
This is hysterical. Sixers when healthy last year were one of the worst teams in the league.

So if they are really healthy, they add fultz and Simmons to the team. Mind you. These two players couldn't get their teams into the playoffs. In college. When 64 teams make it.

However, they bump sixers up to potentially 5th in the east. Hysterical.


4.) 03 Aug 2017 20:32:16
How does this have 4 disagrees?


5.) 03 Aug 2017 21:02:28
Because 4 people disagree with your projections and pressed disagree. Thought that was obvious.


6.) 04 Aug 2017 13:35:12
Im going for Spurs, Rockets, Thunder or Wolves will beat Warriors in the playoffs.
Cavs may be in the NBA Finals if they can get good return players from Irving trade.

7. Hornets
8. Sixers (trust the process)

76ers pipe dream

2017/ 18 lineup:
PG: Fultz, McConnell, Bayless
SG: Redick, Luwawu, Korkmaz
SF: Covington, Saric, Stauskas
PF: Simmons, Johnson, Anderson
C: Embiid, Holmes, Okafor

2018 OFFSEASON

-Try dumping the contracts of Bayless and Okafor using draft picks (if they can't trade Okafor then just decline his team option)

-Renounce rights to Stauskas, Johnson, Covington

-Sign LeBron James 2yr max
-Re-sign Joel Embiid 3yr 54m (player option on last year and last year is non-guaranteed; this is so if Embiid stays healthy he can opt out and get more money, but if he's not worth the contract and stays hurt then the 76ers can just waive him)
-Sign Avery Bradley 3yr 56m
-Re-sign Amir Johnson 1yr room exception
-Sign Vince Carter 1yr minimum
-Sign Jameer Nelson 1yr minimum
-Sign Spencer Hawes 1yr minimum

2018/ 19 Lineup:
PG: Fultz, McConnell, Nelson
SG: Bradley, Korkmaz, Carter
SF: James, Luwawu, Anderson
PF: Simmons, Saric, Hawes
C: Embiid, Johnson, Holmes.

NBA

1.) 25 Jul 2017 23:15:18
Only issue I see is unless they agree to an extension with Embiid before FA starts some bad team is going to give him a 4yr max contract due to the immense talent he has flashed when healthy. Embiid's camp likely knows this so don't think he'd settle for anything less than a 4yr max and 76ers will have to take that risk. Another significant injury this season is the only thing that could prevent him from getting the max.


2.) 25 Jul 2017 23:18:58
Also, love Bradley signing for 76ers. Before 76ers signed Reddick or Celtics Hayward I thought they should've tried to get him with Celtics unlikely to be able to pay him and 76ers could give assets that would've potentially helped Celtics land George or Butler.

James would be wise to stay in the east provided he wants a solid shot to win another ring. Celtics may be more built to win now but 76ers are probably most promising team in the east and if James stuck around he could ride the coat tails of the team as he declines and this team matures. He and Simmons would be an awkward fit together since they are very similar style players but James would also be an invaluable mentor for him.


3.) 26 Jul 2017 03:33:14
I think bradely replacing redick and bringing on LBJ, the low balling embiid and cutting salary isn't needed. The sixers are in great cap space. Should be an interesting year.


4.) 26 Jul 2017 06:04:34
I think Embiid and Bradley may be willing to take a little less for a chance at a ring. I mean why would you not? You're still making millions.


5.) 27 Jul 2017 23:57:16
Sixers are in great cap space because they have no one who's won games in the NBA. Or played games in the NBA. Or actually. Really have t played in college either.

What I find hysterical is the future is reliant on 3 guys. These 3 guys, combining NBA and all there college experiences, played less than an average college senior.

Hysterical.

Also. Is it just me or didn't embiid prove this year more than his "potential" that he will never be able to play for an actual season? I mean seriously. Broken after 2 games in college. Broken and missed his first year. Broken and missed his second year. Broken after 30 games in his 3rd year.

But hey, sweet warm up line dunk bro. Sweet dunk.

1.) 23 Jul 2017 00:40:46
Not enough if I'm the Cavs, Bledsoe is good but he hasn't been able to stay healthy his entire career. He has torn cartilage in both knees so bad in one knee his meniscus was removed entirely after surgery didn't repair the tear. I'd be fine betting on him if Cavs got more but Green and O'quinn aren't going to cut it.

I think Spurs are getting way too much back. Aldridge doesn't have much trade value (which is why Spurs didn't move him after shopping him) and is starting to look old. He and Green only have 1 certain year left on contract (player options for 18-19) which lowers their value since they could just be rentals.

Trade is awful for Suns. Suns reportedly declined an offer of Mudiay and a 1st for Bledsoe so I highly doubt they take this offer. Suns should be focusing on getting young talent or at least getting Irving themselves not this sort of return.

This is probably the first ever trade including Cavs and Knicks that I haven't seen Melo involved. Its a solid return for Knicks who get two promising young scorers in Forbes and Warren and Knight who is someone I'd roll the dice on as someone who not long ago showed a lot of promise.


2.) 23 Jul 2017 07:12:49
Okay then how about Phoenix keeps Miami's 2018 1st and it is NOT sent to the Spurs? The Spurs could send a 2nd rd pick to Cleveland.


3.) 23 Jul 2017 15:09:54
I don't think a 2nd rounder means much of anything to a team like Cavs especially a Spurs 2nd rounder in 50s. I still don't like the premise of the trade. I know Suns were interested in Aldridge but that was two years ago when they were under the illusion they could build a contender and didn't have Booker or Jackson yet. Suns would be wise to move Bledsoe Knight and Chandler for younger assets not Aldridge who won't make them a playoff team and could be gone in a year.

Its not awful for Cavs since it doesn't really hurt them in short term but I feel they should be able to get more value.


 

 

11 Jul 2017 02:27:03
Where I think too remaining free agents 'should' go

-Noel: Mavs
-Gasol: Spurs
-KCP: Hawks, Lakers, or Nets
-Plumlee: Hawks, Nuggets, or Nets
-Rose: Lakers, Pelicans, Hawks, Bulls
-Rondo: Knicks, Lakers, or Pelicans
-Dedmon: Spurs or Hawks
-Moute: Jazz or Raptors
-Ja. Green: Grizzlies
-Simmons: Spurs, Suns, Mavs, or Lakers
-Muhammad: Nets or Hawks
-Mirotic: Magic, Nets, or Hawks
-Ilyasova: Raptors, Pelicans, or Jazz
-T. Allen: Cavs, Celtics, or Lakers
-McGee: Warriors.

NBA

1.) 11 Jul 2017 15:00:52
Really would love to see Tony Allen return to the Celtics. He could help replace what they lost in moving Bradley on the defensive end.


2.) 11 Jul 2017 16:42:49
I would love that too. Only thing is that it would cut into playing time for Brown and Tatum, which I don't think would be a good thing for their development. But that could change if we trade Crodwer now.


3.) 11 Jul 2017 17:38:43
Re: Tony Allen
Respectfully disagree. Allen works his tail off on the defensive end, but the Celtics' offense is built around ball movement and scoring threats at at least 4 of the 5 positions. Teams would not guard Allen, throwing off the entire offensive flow.
Again, just opinion. If anyone could find a good role for him, it's Stevens. The coach made Evan Turner a ton of money by using him the right way in Turner's walk year.


4.) 11 Jul 2017 18:02:28
Supercollider, he's a bad shooter, but he can finish around the rim. 9 points a game on 46 percent shooting isn't bad for a guy that . Especially considering the pace that Memphis plays at. It's not like he gets a ton of fast break points on that team.


5.) 11 Jul 2017 18:23:59
Ya I guess Celtics have the pieces in house to mostly fill in for Bradley. Brown and Smart play more shooting guard with Rozier filling in more of the backup pg minutes and Tatum and Crowder can fill in backup sf/ pf minutes.

Allen is a bit of a liability offensively but Celtics were able to make it work with Smart. There isn't an incredible need for him though and minutes would probably be suited for their younger guys.
