Thompson seems like a nonstarter for the Spurs. Hill and Jr don't have very much guaranteed money after next year. They would probably be preferable for the Spurs. Gasol doesn't haven muxh guaranteed money after next year year either so I don't see him as a guy the Spurs would want to dump. Mills is probably the guy they would look to throw in. Even after that it feels short. The Cavs would probably need atleast another pick throw in and more than likely a decent pick from this year. Maybe they could get that with Hood, but if feels like Love would have to be involved in some way for them to have a chance at Leonard. There are a lot of risks to anyone trading for him, but he's a top 5 player when healthy.

A bunch of pennies, dimes and nickels for silver dollar pieces. Lol Not happening.

I think on draft night he get traded to cavs or Lakers. Maybe Boston.


2.) 23 Feb 2018 06:35:35
Nah, Clarkson, and the pick are a good lure, but Love, and Osman just don't quite get it there. Love doesn't strike me as a Popovich type player. He's good, just not Spurs style. Aldridge is barely. Had to work at it.


3.) 23 Feb 2018 12:18:08
Clarkson is not a lure, Osman is more so and the pick is nice. Moving Gasol out would be great, but I think Love would be a terrible fit beside LMA.


4.) 23 Feb 2018 14:23:24
I think Love could be a fantastic Popovich type of player, but I agree with Triangle, he's not a great fit next to LMA. They would really open up the offense, but would be a nightmare defensively.


5.) 23 Feb 2018 14:40:05
If you believe Osman has more value than Clarkson there is nothing more to discuss Triangle. That's your idea, and I'll stick to mine.


6.) 23 Feb 2018 18:51:52
Jorga, Osman has more value. He's on a bargain contract for the next 3 years, is a good versatile defender, constantly hustles, and has the offensive skills to develop into a good player on that end.

Clarkson is on a less than team friendly contract for multiple years, is a good offensive player but doesn't looks like he'll ever be more than a volume scoring combo guard.

Walker is a keeper. Shoot for Lamb maybe. That's something CLE has matching talent for.


2.) 06 Feb 2018 05:56:10
Cleveland isn’t sending enough salary out are they? Walker, Batum, and Howard are over 50 million a year.


3.) 06 Feb 2018 06:25:32
Trade works. CAVS go deep into luxury though. CLE has nearly 10 mil in exceptions.


4.) 06 Feb 2018 06:29:51
@bmill correct, it’s about 58 for 48.


5.) 06 Feb 2018 06:46:15
Check the trade on trade machine. It passes.


6.) 06 Feb 2018 11:40:59
Both team should do this.
Cleveland should go all in
And Cahrlotte should start a complete rebuilt.

So the bucks give up 2 starters, for 2 backups? HA HA HA HA! Thanks for the laugh!


2.) 31 Jan 2018 16:27:14
THE CLIPPERS DO NOT WANT THOMPSON! He is only being mentioned because of his contract matching up close to DJ's and he's a big man. He has a terrible contract and it goes against what they are trying to do.

Cavs need to sign someone to add to the roster. They wanted a buyout for a defensive big man but that doesn't seem likely. Tony Allen is still available and although he is a smaller guard type and Cavs have a ton of them, I still believe Allen veteranship and defensive presence and toughness would be a huge bolt that they need to compete with the top teams. Nothing like adding a 6x defensive all team player to help strengthen the Cavs weakest liability.

Cavs Clippers
If Clippers decides Blake is available. Cavs should go all in and take a risk.

Cavs receive
Jordan
Griffin
Johnson

Clippers receive
Thompson
Shumpert
Smith
Frye
Osman
Nets pick 18
Miami 2019 second round pick
Cavs 2021 first round
Cavs 2023 first round or add Crowder and remove this pick and Jr Smith

Clippers of course would have to want a full rebuild for this to happen. Osman I believe has more value than some people realize considering he's only 22 and when test waters for Osman this summer they had a few interest in him. The main part of the trade though is of course all the draft picks and getting 4 picks altogether (3 first rounders) plus the Nets pick this year is the turning point in this trade. Of course if the Clippers value Crowder they could demand him in the trade but I believe he's worth something so the last first would be removed. The Clippers would have a ton of options going forward with all the additional assets.

Cavs take a high risk high reward gamble but I believe this trade is more than just for this year and that's why they give up so much of their future in order to win now and for the next few years. Similar package to the Nets when they traded for KG and Pierce and that didn't turn out well but the Cavs need to go all in now and show Lebron the best team for him to be on not only this year but next year and in distant future is the Cavs. Of course this would mean major adjustments and I know I'm going to get slammed for this but Blake would have to become the primary SF which offensively isn't a problem but defensively could create an issue with smaller forwards but the Cavs don't have much with defense now so Blake is more than capable of learning anything Basketball wise. In my mind has been playing more of a sf role this year anyways. Of course injury risk with Blake is a concern and DJ Lebron and Thomas on final years of their contracts is also a concern but you have to risk it to get the biscuit.

Thomas/ Rose/ Calderon
Lebron/ Wade/ (Smith)
Griffin/ Korver
Love/ Green/ (Crowder)
Jordan/ Johnson/ Zizic

Griffin at SF. Omg.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 17:02:21
CAVS did little to nothing, and acquired draft picks last offseason because James is gone. Watch, and see. The teams actions indicate a James departure. It's always that way.


 

 

21 Jul 2017 21:04:01
As a Cavs fan this is depressing. Might as well go into rebuild mode now and trade Kyrie Lebron Kevin TT........ well everyone. And at least get some picks and young players while we can

Ritequick24

1.) 22 Jul 2017 00:03:49
It'll hurt if we lose Kyrie, but the guy has a ton of value and we could end up bring back more (but older) talent for him. This might be a blessing in disguise as the up coming season is concerned.


2.) 22 Jul 2017 00:42:20
I think rebuilding is probably the best and most likely strategy for Cavs at this point after a complete nightmare of an offseason. They should let the offers they get for Kyrie dictate this of course but Kyrie being only 25 and locked in cheap for 2 more years (with 3rd year option) makes him attractive to not only playoff teams (I think Twolves, Celtics and Nuggets would be good landing places with assets to make a meaningful offer for him) but to teams rebuilding and looking for a franchise cornerstone.

Like when trading any superstar they aren't going to get fair value on him so I think its very unrealistic to expect Cavs to improve after trading Kyrie (gaining more depth and defense could offset things tho) and with Warriors and Celtics improving and Lebron possibly leaving I think its wisest to hit the hard reset. I can't really think of what it would take to get Kyrie let alone Lebron (albeit a 1 year rental) but things should sure be interesting if a powerhouse like the Cavs blow things up.


3.) 22 Jul 2017 02:48:40
I disagree Jaw, as long as Lebron is on the roster the goal should be to win now. Before Lebron, the Cavs had never been to a finals. Worry about rebuilding once that time comes. There is a chance to make the roster better here.


4.) 22 Jul 2017 14:59:55
You aren't getting fair value for him. And you clearly are y winning this year. Blow it up.


5.) 22 Jul 2017 16:55:55
rkenne_16 I'll concede that as long as Lebron is on the roster Cavs are the favorite in the east and there is a chance they improve via trading Kyrie. I think the ideal trade for Kyrie would be for players that are signed past next season that can help them compete this season but would still have solid resale value (aka not too old, due a big extension, more valuable to the Cavs than other teams or something) if Lebron did leave.

There is a lot going on with this trade which makes the trade unlikely but I do believe everyone benefits in this trade.
3 team deal Chicago Cleveland Philadelphia

Chicago trades: Gibson, Felicio, Rondo, 2018 2020 second round picks
Chicago receives: T. Thompson, Rodriguez, Holmes, Covington

Cleveland trades: Thompson, Liggins, McRae, Anderson (contract), Rights to Cedi Osman
Cleveland receives: Rondo, Noel, Ilyasova, 2018 2020 second round picks from Chicago

Philadelphia trades: Ilyasova, Noel, Rodriguez, Holmes, Covington
Philadelphia receives: Gibson, Liggins, McRae, Felicio, Anderson (waive), Rights to Cedi Osman,
-Trade exception from Cleveland will be needed to complete this trade

Why for Chicago: Besides the fact that they finally end the whole Rondo situation. They gain a lot of good talent for a rather cheap price. Thompson fills the void of Gibson and they gain Covingtons shooting also a good back up PG in Rodriguez. Also Holmes has been playing very well this year as well and is a great addition to the second unit. A lot of talent for pieces that have been on the market and are expandable.

Why for Cleveland: Thompson is a hard piece to give up along with the youth and potential of Liggins and McRae but Cavs Gm Griffin always finds ways to maximize the gain. Also he has expressed the need to find an additional playmaker to relieve the duties of Lebron and Kyrie a little more. Rondo of course is a playmaker and a PG that the Cavs have been hoping for so they take the chance on adding him. While they get rid of the relentlessness of Thompson they gain Noel which isn't as good at doing the dirty work but is just as good at Defense. Ilyasova fits the Cavs style perfectly and gives the Cavs another great shooter to plug into the 3 point barrage they already have. Also the second round picks gives the Cavs assets for the future since they deplete most every other assets.

Why for Philadelphia: This is the wildcard team in this equation. Philly does give away a lot but they gain Gibson who give them a toughness and ruthlessness to play beside embiid. and once Simmons comes back will be their anchor for doing the dirty work. Felicio is a great young potential big who has been playing great and will only improve and give the 76ers and great backup beside Okafor in the second unit. Also makes room for some more playing time for their prospects they want to develop. Liggins give the sixers a young defensive specialist and McRae an offensive playmaker.

Ritequick24

1.) 14 Jan 2017 16:54:22
Don't like it for Cavs or 76ers. I think Noel is a step down from Thompson and will likely command more money than him this offseason due to raise in salary cap and lack of talent available to spend it on. Rondo has taken a significant step back this season and I wouldn't give up assets to get him.

He is a potential candidate to be waived (his contract isn't fully guaranteed) so getting him once he clears waivers is only way I see Cavs getting him and even then his lack of shooting and loss of defensive effort/ ability makes him closer to a liability when he is on the court. Cavs have plenty of shooters so don't think Ilyasova is needed and 2nd round picks hold very little value to a team like the Cavs.

I don't get how this trade makes 76ers any better. Gibson is an upcoming FA and too old to play any significant role for 76ers when it would matter. Their best bet is to keep the young guys like Holmes and Covington who have become more than most initially expected and to keep them as bench players or swing them for more flexible assets like draft picks. Liggins, McRae and Felicio are all nothing special where Noel when healthy and in the correct role has shown he can potential be a good starter in the league.


2.) 14 Jan 2017 22:20:54
Dude, we all know you are a cavs fan. but can you at least try and make the trades even? Philly gets a whole bag of nothing in this. awesome


3.) 17 Jan 2017 03:06:12
This might be the dumbest thing I've ever read on here. Congrats

Cleveland would have to consider this Jorga. The contract situation does create a long term issue but for this season alone. Jordan and Williams would help fix their problems on the court and after this season they would deal with the contracts when Lebron makes his decision. The main selling point in this trade though is the extra pick. Doesn’t matter which first it is. The would still have two first and most likely 2 between 15-25 range that they can either select players still on draft night or package those of another return. The extra pick though is only 5-10 slots back from the Nets pick which makes this deal hard to pass.

Isaiah is not going to get traded guys. Him and Dan Gilbert are as close as Lebron and Gilbert are so I doubt he would let him be traded after all his hard work coming back. At least not this season.

I agree that this trade will need at least the Cavs first if not more but Memphis may actually have interest now in a trade since Conley is opting for surgery.

It’s never to late for a complete roster makeover espically if the Cavs will continue to play like this. I mean they already aren’t going to win and as of now they probably wouldn’t even win the East so if they decide to move 4-6 players I would be surprise/ mad about it.
