One last version of that trade and then I'll stop lol

Cavs get Kawhi Leonard and Chandler Parsons

Grizzlies get Kevin Love

Spurs get George Hill, the 4th overall pick via Memphis, and the 8th overall pick via Cleveland

Same thing as my last proposal except the Spurs don't have to take on Parsons' contract which would be appealing to them. Hill can take over as a short term replacement for Tony Parker.

If LeBron was to sign off on this, I think that everyone else involved should go for it.

Cavs get their guy, and LeBron. if he wants it, they're happy.

Grizzlies get rid of Parsons and #4, which alone is something they've been rumored to want to do, but they also bring back Love. I'm still a fan, and I think he would work well there. There's definitely some injury issues throughout the roster now, but they have another reliable vet/ star to lean on. He also should produce better without getting all the blame for a LeBron team not winning.

I personally think the Grizzlies should be blowing it up at this point and going young from scratch, but I don't think they actually will, so this works well.

As far as the Spurs go, I like this a LOT. They're able to get two top 10 picks in a pretty solid draft, and are able to bring back a guy that Pop really likes. I think Hill is overpaid, as are many in the league, but he also got a bad rap this year. I just don't understand the narrative that was going around about how everyone but LeBron sucked on the Cavs this year. Hill is a solid player, and it would be really poetic if he gets moved for Leonard again, but this time he goes and gets the rings after the trade. You add two really good rookies to LA, Hill, Manu, Murray, Pau and Pop, and you have a team that can compete.

A different version of the Cavs-Memphis trade I posted earlier

Cavs get Kawhi Leonard

Grizzlies get Kevin Love

Spurs get Chandler Parsons, the 4th pick via Memphis, and the 8th pick via Cleveland

The Cavs land a superstar in a last ditch effort to convince LBJ to stay. The Grizzlies part ways with Parsons' awful contract and land an All-Star to compliment Gasol and Conley. The Spurs might back out of this deal due to having to take on Parsons but I don't see any other scenario where they can land two top 10 picks in this year's loaded class for Kawhi while also sending him to the East.

Assuming Memphis does this the Cavs would have to eat Parsons contract for the Spurs to think about it.

Cavs get Chandler Parsons and the 4th overall pick

Grizzlies get Kevin Love

The Grizzlies are reported to be interested in trading the 4th pick if it means getting rid of Parsons' awful contract. In this deal they don't get the cap relief they're hoping for but they get an established All-Star in Love who can really help them rebound from their terrible season. The Cavs only make this deal if LBJ leaves, but if he does then this makes a lot of sense. Yes they'll be stuck with Parsons horrible contract but they'll now have two top 10 picks in a loaded draft. That'll certainly help jumpstart their re-build.

The Cavs should jump on this.


Memphis, doesn't own the 2019 pick, so they can try to compete for a few more years.

Not bad. As a grizz fan I want parsons/ 4 for derozan. Grizz need a wing bad.


3.) 16 Jun 2018 16:28:48
Are the Grizz rebuilding though? Doesn’t sound like it with being willing to move this pick, but I don’t understand why they wouldn’t consider dealing Gasol, Conley for youth or picks.


4.) 16 Jun 2018 16:48:12
Love is one therapy away from mental breakdown, his mentals aspect deminishes his physical talent. Parson 2018 2nd for Love is fair. Plus grizz pf is loaded they need a SF back.


5.) 16 Jun 2018 17:41:52
Your not getting Derozan for the 4th pick and dumping parsons and love is deminished talent cause he was open about depression? You’re a clown 🤡.

Lakers get Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills

Spurs get Luol Deng, Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, the 25th overall pick, and the Lakers unprotected 2019 first

It'd be tough to convince anyone to take on Deng's awful contract, which is why I have the Lakers giving essentially all of their young talent to the Spurs in this deal. This is a steep price to pay, but worth it if they have a commitment from LeBron James and Paul George.

Mills/PG13/Kawhi/LBJ/Lopez

Only AD trade to the Warriors that NOLA should even consider

Warriors get Anthony Davis and Alexis Ajinca

Pelicans get Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Jordan Bell, and a first round pick

I still wouldn't do this if I'm NOLA. AD is such a special talent and will likely take over as the best player in the world when LBJ declines. However, this is one of the best packages they could possibly get for him. Klay and Draymond are very valuable players who could keep the Pelicans relevant or be traded for high quality assets if they decided to re-build. The Dubs would have the best big 3 ever but would have depth issues around those three.

Rerur

1.) 14 Jun 2018 13:22:28
If and when the Pels decide to deal Davis, it most likely will not be to a Western Conference team.


2.) 14 Jun 2018 13:30:07
In my opinion, the Pelicans would be getting fleeced in this trade. Klay has never had to play being the best shooter on a team. Without having to give Steph all the attention, teams can focus their energy on shutting down Klay. I see Klay as a mix between McCollum and Bradley without Steph. The value of the first round pick though would be hogwash.

If anything, there is an upgrade from Alexis to Jordan (however, the Pels lose height in this trade which may be concerning if they can't one up with DeMarcus) . I think it's a realistic trade, but not one worth making for the Pels!


3.) 14 Jun 2018 16:02:14
This is a classic example of a rumor mill trade idea started on GSW fan gages. The trade actually makes no sense for either team. I also agree w SuperCollider that you don't deal AD to a team that won back to backs.


4.) 14 Jun 2018 18:18:55
Chicago i bet he wants to come home and he has invested money in a company so idk if money would matter plus Chicago is a young and rising team with Lebron maybe going west would help us get closer when we had to battle with Lebron with rose noah.


5.) 14 Jun 2018 19:51:20
Money doesn't matter? Pels can offer a Supermax which exceeds anything AD can make elsewhere by 85 million. He's invested in several NOLA businesses also. He ain't leaving and the Pels ain't trading him.


6.) 14 Jun 2018 23:08:45
He wants to come play east is easier Plath to finals he’s from Chicago he’s invested a lot of money into a computer company.

Warriors dream offseason

Warriors get LeBron James (he opts into the final year of his contract like CP3 did last summer)

Cavs get Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala

Sign JJ Redick and Brook Lopez to the veteran minimum

Re-sign David West to the veteran minimum, re-tain Patrick McCaw and Kevon Looney (RFA)

C: Draymond Green/Brook Lopez/D. Jones
PF: Kevin Durant/David West/Jordan Bell
SF: LeBron James/Kevon Looney
SG: JJ Redick/Patrick McCaw
PG: Steph Curry/Shaun Livingston

With this squad, it's game over. It might take some time for them to get chemistry but once they do there's no stopping them. 16-0 in the postseason for sure. Redick and Lopez would be leaving a lot of money on the table but I bet they'd do it for a chance to play a big role on the greatest team ever assembled.

2013 NBA Re-Draft

1. Cleveland Cavaliers
Actual pick: Anthony Bennett, PF
Do-over pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF

It didn't take the Cavs long to figure out that Anthony Bennett was one of the biggest draft busts in NBA history. A little over a year after the Cavs drafted Bennett, he was shipped to Minnesota in a deal that brought All-Star PF Kevin Love to CLE. Bennett has continued to do nothing as a T-wolf.

Meanwhile, the 15th overall pick Giannis Antetokounmpo has blossomed into an All-NBA Second Team player in just his fourth season. Giannis lead the Milwaukee Bucks in points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals for the entire 2016-17 campaign(!) en route to a playoff berth. The Greek Freak is currently a three point shot away from becoming a consistent MVP threat.

Kyrie Irving's body control along with the prospect of acquiring Kevin Love was enough to convince LeBron to bring his talents back home in 2014. Imagine if the Cavs had Kyrie Irving and Giannis Antetokounmpo? Although it wasn't super obvious Giannis would be a star after his rookie year, he possessed a rare combination of length and athleticism: the same combination that made LeBron intrigued with center Tristan Thompson. With LeBron at the 4 and Giannis at the 3, a Kevin Love trade is no longer necessary. The Cavs could keep their 2014 and '15 first rounders and use them to address depth issues. A LeBron-Giannis-Kyrie Big 3 would currently be the best trio in the NBA in my opinion, although GSW might have something to say about that. Oh, what could've been...

2. Orlando Magic
Actual pick: Victor Oladipo, SG
Do-over pick: Rudy Gobert, C

Victor Oladipo hasn't been a bust, but he also hasn't been the franchise player the Magic were hoping he'd be. Orlando traded Oladipo to OKC in 2016 for Serge Ibaka, and a year later the Thunder traded him to the Pacers as part of a package for Paul George.

The 27th overall pick Rudy Gobert has developed into the kind of defensive center that would remind Magic fans of Dwight Howard in his prime. In his fourth season, Gobert was named to both the All-NBA Second Team and the All-Defensive First Team. Although he's still nothing special offensively (14 ppg) Gobert has the upside to be the best overall center in the game one day and a multiple DPOY winner.

Gobert would have given the Magic something they've lacked since Dwight Howard: a true franchise player. Rudy would have fit right in with a franchise that has only made the finals with a center as its best player (Shaq in 1995, Howard in 2009). The Magic are far from contention, but they'd be a lot closer with Gobert as the face of the franchise.

3. Washington Wizards
Actual pick: Otto Porter Jr., SF
Do-over pick: CJ McCollum, SG

Otto Porter has been a nice fit in Washington alongside Bradley Beal and John Wall: when Beal is actually playing. Beal has battled injuries throughout his career. Porter and Beal will make a combined $48.6 Million next year, pretty outrageous considering the skill and reliability of both.

McCollum has developed into the perfect complement for Damian Lillard in Portland. His scoring and sweet-shooting would help to take the pressure off any star. McCollum would be a better, more reliable backcourt complement to John Wall than Beal. The Wizards could have easily traded Beal for a veteran small forward or for draft picks. Everything is crystal clear in hindsight though.

4. Charlotte Bobcats
Actual pick: Alex Len, C
Do-over pick: Steven Adams, C

Alex Len is another bust of this class. The Suns have to be kicking their-selves for passing on Gobert and Steven Adams.

Adams has developed into a nice starting center in this league, capable of averaging a double-double while being a good defender. Adams can protect the rim and close out on shooters very well for a big man. The Suns wouldn't be forced to start an over-priced Tyson Chandler at center with Adams around.

1.) 13 Jul 2017 19:24:50
The issue with the first scenario is nobody considered Giannis that high of a prospect and a major project at that. If they did select him and didn't trade for Love (kept Wiggins) then that likely wouldn't have been enough to convince Lebron to come back to Cleveland with Giannis a major question mark. They likely still would've had to have made that Love trade to attract Lebron (Lebron clearly signed with the promise the Twolves would trade Wiggins for Love) .

Magic are a mess. Oladipo wasn't that bad a pick given that draft class and as great a defensive force Gobert is without another star on their team Magic wouldn't be much better than they are now. Its highly unlikely they would've drafted a center with a young Vucevic putting in a strong season the year prior.

I don't view McCollum as an upgrade over Beal the only advantage is that he'd been healthy although Beal was able to do that this past year. Those same injuries would tarnish Beal's trade value so I doubt they'd get anyone better than Porter is now especially nobody as young as him. McCollum is being paid basically just as much as Beal. Don't see this switch making much if any difference.

If Steven Adams is going at 4
it's a real thin draft.

My top 10 retake of the draft

1 Cleveland - Greek freak (Kyrie, wiggins, Greek freak)
2 Orlando - Cj McCollom (could've used a 20 point scorer)
3 Washington - R Gobert ( wall, beal, gobert lineup scary)
4 Charlotte - N Noel ( defense walker, mkg, Noel)
5 Phoenix - O Porter ( 3&d alongside Bledsoe and booker)
6 Philadelphia - V Oladipo ( best player available )
7 Sacramento - KCP ( sac choose different gaurd who can defend)
8 Detroit - B McLemore ( more of a sweet shooter for Drummond)
9 Utah - D Shroeder ( way better then trey burke)
10 Portland - S Adams ( Adams + Aldridge would of been fun)

Unlucky c zeller, k Olynyk, A Crabbe, g Dieng.


4.) 17 Jul 2017 14:33:39
My retake of that top 10

1. Cleveland - Giannis Antetokounmpo ( Kyrie, Wiggins, Greek freak would be cool)
2. Orlando - Cj McCollom ( no clear option grabbing a 20+ point player isn't bad )
3. Washington - Rudy Gobert ( a core now of Wall, Beal and Gobert would be scary)
4. Charlotte - Nerlons Noel ( defensive beast to pair with walker and mkg)
5. Phoenix - Otto Porter ( adds defence and 3pt shooting next to booker and Bledsoe)
6. Philadelphia - Victor Oladipo ( needed everything best player available )
7. Sacramento - KCP ( sac town can't develop sg's but kcp can defend well)
8. Detroit - Ben McLemore ( with right development could become sweet 3 and d )
9. Utah - Dennis Schroeder ( they were looking for a pg and he's a lot better then Burke)
10. Portland - Steven Adams (Adams and Aldridge pairing would compliment each other)



Unlucky - Cody Zeller, Allen Crabbe, Gorgui Dieng, Kelly Olynyk.

Cavs get Dwight Howard

Rockets get Kevin Love

It's pretty apparent that the Cavs need a lot of help on defense, and Kevin Love doesn't provide that. His offensive stats have taken a huge hit since Kyrie Irving has returned to the lineup and Love just simply isn't a good defender. Howard, on the other hand, is still one of if not the best defensive big man in the game and still has plenty left in the tank as evident by his recent 36 point 26 rebound outing. Most importantly, Howard wants to win now and is hungry for a ring; so he should have no problem accepting a not-so prominent offensive role in Cleveland. James and Irving should be able to capitalize on plenty of alley-oop passes to the big man however and a Howard-Tristan Thompson front court would be nasty defensively (assuming they don't bring in a stretch four like Markieff Morris) .

The Rockets on the other hand have a putrid defense that would get much worse with swapping Howard for Love. The Rockets really don't have a chance at contending in the West this season anyway, so tanking the rest of this year and getting a good lottery pick seems like the best course of action. Love is younger than Howard, much more dynamic offensively, and is under contract for the next several seasons. Howard is likely to opt out of the final year of his deal this summer and leave Houston if he isn't traded by the deadline. This move would give Houston a legit 1-2 scoring punch in Harden and Love that they can build around over the next couple of years. They would need to surround this duo with top notch defenders if they want to contend, but that is feasible.

NBA Talk

Do you think the Cavaliers would've been better off trading Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and the future first round pick to the Portland Trailblazers for Lamarcus Aldrige instead of to the Timberwolves for Kevin Love?

It's an interesting idea. Aldrige is a better defender than Love and shoots at a higher percentage from the field, but Love is a better rebounder and much better three point shooter. Another aspect to consider is age: Love will only be 27 in September whereas Aldrige turns 30 this month. In my opinion, Love is a better fit offensively alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving because Love is a three point shooter who can spread the floor and create space for the ball handlers. Aldrige could create space with his mid range jumpers but he wouldn't serve as a threat from three (27.6 % from three in his career).

Ultimately, I think the Cavs made the right choice by going with Love. He's younger, a superior rebounder/3 PT shooter and better fits the team in Cleveland (IMO). I could see Aldrige making a lot of sense though, so I want to hear some other opinions. What would you have done?

Rerur

1.) 06 Jul 2015 14:15:28
The Cavs would've been better off with Aldrige. His efficient low-post offense and mid-range game would perfectly complement LeBron and Kyrie. Aldrige would also have provided more help on defense than Love and Aldrige had actual playoff experience prior to this season. Aldrige could've been a leader on this team alongside LeBron and in my opinion the Cavs would've beaten the Warriors had Aldrige been on the team and healthy for the Finals.

If the Cavs never traded for Love, they could be trading for Durant Right now.

Thunder get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, two first round picks

Cavs get Kevin Durant

Imagine how good the Cavs would be right now. Plus the Thunder would get a young future superstar to replace Durant.

I'd go with Rose/ Wiggins/ LeBron/ Love/ Thompson but your lineup is nice too. Not a bad trade for the Cavs, excellent trade for the T-Wolves. Butler and Wiggins are very similar players and will be redundant at times on offense, bringing in a lethal shooter and finisher like Kyrie adds a whole new dimension to their offense. The Wolves sorely need three point shooting and this trade would add two 40% 3PT shooters. A Warriors/ T-Wolves WCF would be a possibility.

As a Pistons fan, I'd be ecstatic if that package could land Kyrie; but it can't. Plus giving up those picks gives the Pistons nothing to build around Kyrie with, so he'd probably leave as a free agent in 2019.
