Butler to Sixers or Bucks
Which one do you want..

Butler to Sixers for Covington and Fultz/Saric

Butler to Bucks for Bledsoe and Maker/Brogdon plus future 1st pick/s

3rd wheel team would be Phoenix Suns, getting a PG and Dieng for Chandler and pick/s..

Simmons, Embiid, Giannis and Middleton are off limits..

Nba-gmaster

1.) 17 Oct 2018 11:24:36
They aren’t getting Fultz or Saric or multiple picks from the Bucks.


2.) 17 Oct 2018 15:49:58
If Minny had been smart, I think Covington and Saric could have happened, but that train has long passed. I think they could still get Saric out of it, but that would be with Wilson Chandler and/ or Bayless as salary filler.


3.) 17 Oct 2018 16:35:00
They are going to play butler and lose him to FA next summer the way this has gone so far. And yep that expiring deal keeps losing value everyday.


 

 

05 Oct 2018 13:53:57
getting tired of Twolves not trading Butler..

Butler to Miami
and
J.Richardson and T.Johnson going Minny


additional, Wolves want Dieng out, trade him to Suns with Jones for Chandler and 2nd rd pick

and Heat wants Waiters out, send him to Kings with 1st rd picks for any expiring contract/s..

Nba-gmaster

1.) 05 Oct 2018 14:39:49
You’d need to add a first to get rid of Dieng and why take back a bad contract and more salary while only getting back 2 mediocre players if you’re Minnesota? Butler is a top 15 player no matter what you think of his attitude.

If Butler goes to Raptors..
East Finals will be: Celtics vs Raptors..

Nba-gmaster

1.) 25 Sep 2018 16:53:36
I think that's probably what it is anyway. Phili might step in, but right now those two are the two best teams in the east going into the season.


2.) 25 Sep 2018 17:37:32
Celtics
Pacers
Raptors
Sixers
Bucks
Wizards
Heat
Pistons
Bulls
Hornets
Nets
Cavs
Magic
Knicks

*Jimmy Butler would move the heat into the top 3, sixers in the top 2.


3.) 25 Sep 2018 18:00:02
Bold outlook on the Pacers Btec. They're definitely top 4 to me. I do hope that's how it goes, I really like the Pacers team. The top 4 should be pretty interesting with Boston, Indy, and Phili's youth and Toronto's big move. I think there will be a huge gap to 5 after that.


4.) 25 Sep 2018 18:48:01
Agreed Bmiller, I think 2 is a little bullish for Indy, but top 4 is very realistic. There is definitely a drop off between that top 4 and the rest.

Raps do have the assets to make a deal for Butler, whether Minny wants current or future assets. With three good PG’s, Lowry can be the current star, or one of Fred/ Delon could be the future. Adding Miles, or OG would work as well.

I could see any number of combinations, and even potentially including the Kings to make it happen.


5.) 25 Sep 2018 19:54:14
I agree @triangle that the raps do have the right pieces in a value sense to land butler or at least be a finalist in offers made. Powell is a good young piece too. Tough break getting injured and OG tearing it up in his absence. Dealing their youth, and picks then butler and Leonard leave next summer? Bold. Give kudos to ujiri for going all in though. Butler going to the east is good for league balance too.


6.) 29 Sep 2018 14:53:16
As a Celtics fan, I might be as scared of the Bucks as anyone in the East.
Toronto should be good if Leonard comes back healthy, but swapping him for DeRozan is not a HUGE upgrade. It's a star for a bigger star, but who knows how it will fit.
Philly is still young, and I can see them going in just about any direction. they could see injuries to Embiid while Fultz' yips and Simmons' shooting woes continue, or they could all wind up being the best versions of themselves and be fantastic.
Indy is just a solid team to me, and they did it all with Turner being just OK. If he breaks out like he's capable, they could really ruin some team's season come playoff time.
The Bucks on the other hand have a bonafide superstar. The closest thing anyone has to him is Leonard, and we don't know how he will come back yet. Middleton is a really good scorer, but too much was put on him last year because they didn't have many great shooters. That's where I think DiVincenzo will make a difference. He probably won't do too much early on, but I could see him earning himself some serious playing time by the playoffs, and his spacing of the floor will make things a lot easier on Giannis and Bledsoe/ Brogdon to slash to the basket. The addition of Lopez (who can actually shoot now) and a possible breakout of Maker in the Celtics series last year make them a really interesting team to watch.

Butler for Ingram, Deng and 1st pick..

Butler wants to team up with LeBron.. The young guns of Towns, Wiggins and Ingram , plus Deng is one of Coach Thibs guys..

Nba-gmaster

1.) 25 Aug 2018 16:57:18
Ball Hart 2 1st
For
Butler.


2.) 25 Aug 2018 17:16:46
I can’t see Minnesota letting someone slip an awful contract into a butler deal. A late first doesn’t even cover Taking on Deng’s contract.


3.) 25 Aug 2018 18:47:06
Shizee unless Butler commits to resigning no one needs to give up 2 1st picks to get him.


4.) 25 Aug 2018 19:03:50
Deng contract not awful anymore like last year. it's two years left. And this trade would most likely happen at deadline when most this year gone and next year he will be expiring.


 

 

29 Jul 2018 05:55:25
3 team trade:

Cavs get Deng and Lakers 1st pick

Lakers get Korver and Lopez

Bulls get Hill plus cash?

I know cavs are the loser for this trade by getting Deng's contract but the purpose of this is to have some capspace and a 1st rd pick.. George Hill will hinder either Sexton or Clarkson potential

LeBron reuniting with Korver and getting a defensive big man Lopez

Bulls need a Point Guard, Hill would be a good fit and there's a big log jam on their bigmen, Carter need to start and Lopez got to go..

Lakerscant trade first two years in a row.


2.) 29 Jul 2018 15:57:48
2018 draft has occurred so they can trade 2019 if they like but not 2020 along with 2019.


3.) 29 Jul 2018 19:47:13
Giannis is better than derozan. Middleton is better than Lowry. Yet the raptors were like 20 games better than the Bucks.

At least one of those statements has to be false. I’m going with the Middleton/ Lowry statement.


4.) 30 Jul 2018 15:17:45
Bmiller66 more goes into a winning team than 2 players. Raptors had a better coach and a better bench.

3 teams who can dethrone GSW..

1. Houston Rockets
-better offensive or rather better 3 point shooting team..
-they maybe have Melo(could ruin their chemistry) but same with Cousins in Warriors, just kidding..
-could have beaten them last playoffs if Chris Paul wasnt injured..

2. Boston Celtics
-Brad Stevens has overtake the long time best coach Greg Pop..
-they are now healthy and completed
-Tatum, Rozier and Brown are keep getting better and better
-we all know Kyrie owns Curry..

3. Los Angeles Lakers
-every LeBron's team is a title contender and a big threat to them
-they will outsmart them in every play rather than beating them in shooting 3s like the Rockets..
-Lets not forget, Walton was the coach of Warriors 73-9 team when Kerr was injured/sick..

Additional.. Wizards(battle of the starters) and Jazz(best defensive team)..

Nba-gmaster

1.) 17 Oct 2018 11:42:30
The Lakers don’t have the offensive to beat the Warriors and there defense will probably only be above average.

The Wizards are more likely to fight each other than get to the second round of the plays.

Boston and Houston have an outside shot. Toronto probably does as well. They could be an insanely good defensive team, they have shooting, half court
offensive players, and depth. They could use that Houston style of defense that drove the Warriors crazy, but instead of having Ariza and Tucker playing it, you have Kawhi, Danny Green, Anunoby, Siakam and etc.


2.) 17 Oct 2018 16:38:52
How are the Wizards mentioned before Toronto or Phili? The Wizards have a better chance of missing the playoffs than winning it all. Heck, Portland and Denver have a much better chance to knock off GS (because they'll meet them in the first round of the playoffs potentially) .

If Fultz plays like a #1 pick, Phili could be really dangerous. It's a young Lebron/ Wade/ Bosh type of lineup with Simmons/ Fultz/ Embiid.

The Lakers have a chance to knock of GS, but I don't think they would win it all even if they did. If they meet GS in the second round, and Lebron has one of the best series of his career, anything could happen. But I don't think that team is good enough to win 4 playoff series. They'd go on to lose to Houston/ Boston/ Toronto.

Really, the biggest threats are Houston, Boston, and Toronto. Those teams are true contenders if 100% healthy. The rest of the league is either too young (Phili) or not talented enough.

Wolves owner Glen Taylor wants to get it done but coach Thibodeau and GM Layden making pain in the ass.. if they are hesitant to trade Butler, it surely lead to a buyout..

Nba-gmaster

1.) 30 Sep 2018 10:25:01
I don't believe the renegade thibs story. I'm an owner of a business and I can fire anyone at any time for any reason. If I can't fire them, I'll lay them off or cut back their hours and be difficult with scheduling until they leave. Taylor could have and likely would have if thibs was being insubordinate towards Taylor.


2.) 30 Sep 2018 15:28:03
There’s no possible way Butler gets bought out. That’s just a ridiculous idea. He has huge value. Buying him out would be the most inept move in NBA history.


3.) 01 Oct 2018 04:03:40
Legitimately that's the most obvious statement I read on here of someone who does not understand basketball.

They can get a major return. Why buy out? In a second they could get a 1st and an expiring contract. Thing is they want more.

A buy out. Just disappointing that was seriously said.


 

 

28 Sep 2018 14:25:27
Seems like Butler's preferred teams gave up on acquiring him (Knicks, Nets and Clippers)

Raptors don't have enough assets and 1st rd pick to gave up and Sixers don't want to swap Simmons..

Lakers and Celtics standing pat on their rosters..

It's now between these 2 teams..
Heat and Rockets
TWolves want veteran, young player, 1st rounders, and take Dieng contracts

Rockets have veteran players and 2019 1st rd pick but they don't have young player and cannot take Dieng contract

Heat has veteran and young players , can trade 2019 1st pick,and can take Dieng contract

Heat may have the upper hand but Rockets best offer (Gordon, Tucker and 1st pick/s for Butler and filler) is much appealing than Heat..

Heat could offer any combination of veterans (Dragic or Whiteside) and young players (Richardson,Adebayo or Winslow), and one of either the 2 Johnsons or Olynyk for Dieng, plus a 1st rd pick..

*Sleeper: Cleveland Cavaliers

**Kings and Suns are willing to help
Kings have lots of expiry contract and they want draft picks.. Suns want a quality PG..

Nba-gmaster

1.) 28 Sep 2018 16:50:25
Phili has plenty of assets past Simmons (who is waaaaaaaaay more valuable than Butler) .

The Lakers jumping in at the last minute should shock no one.

Agreed, the Rockets don't have the assets to get it done. Maybe if Thibs loves Gordon.

I think Toronto definitely has the assets if they want to make the move. I doubt they do, but it would be a gutsy move.

I also wouldn't count out the middle of the pack teams making a big move (Indy, Portland, Clippers, etc) .


2.) 29 Sep 2018 22:05:37
Didnt butler say no lakers?


 

 

22 Sep 2018 14:48:04
Lets say Leonard and Butler team up in Clippers and Durant joins Lakers..

Which is the better team??

Nba-gmaster

1.) 22 Sep 2018 15:35:02
Obviously the lakers

Lonzo-Hart-Durant-LeBron-McGee (Kuzma, Ingram)


2.) 22 Sep 2018 21:42:15
I want to see the Lakers signs cousins if he come back great.
Ball
Hart
Ingram
James
Cousins
Sixth man kuzma.


3.) 23 Sep 2018 05:15:11
Cousins doesn't win, play defense and has no playoff experience. Lakers need shooting.


4.) 23 Sep 2018 12:25:10
Be good if lavar coaches lakers too
Lakers roster is a ticking time bomb don’t understand why magic signed these players I hear they are only on 1 year deals so what Lebron is going to have to slow down soon
Go Celtics.


5.) 26 Sep 2018 17:42:43
There's no question that Lebron/ Durant beats Leonard/ Butler by a mile. The role players don't matter, and they're fairly similar.


 

 

20 Sep 2018 02:25:39
Jimmy Butler's prefered destination:
Knicks, Clippers or Nets.. which team are you rooting for??

Nba-gmaster

1.) 20 Sep 2018 11:58:30
Clippers. I want Kawhi and butler there so the Lakers see them win.


2.) 20 Sep 2018 13:31:46
Knicks make sense, Clippers too. Nets are a maybe next summer. None offering draft picks though. Maybe 1 already drafted but unlikely considering they can get butler with cap in the summer. Dealing griffin then paying butler? Seems like an odd about-face age-wise.

how about:
Lakers get Leonard
Suns get Ball and Deng
Spurs get Chandler, Ingram, a 1st rd and 2nd rd pick from Lakers and a 2nd rd pick from suns

Suns want Lonzo
Lakers want Leonard
spurs get Chandler (could be their starting center) and Ingram (potential to be a kevin durant)

Like the idea of Kevin Love going to Thunder and Melo to Cavs but Neither of those 2 teams will take Kanter because of his contract not unless you include 2 1st rd draft picks.
