Not really a fan of this trade for any of the teams. Aldridge reportedly wants out of SA since they aren't using him right when the reality is he is aging and not as good as he used to be. Spurs would be wise to shop him but I think what they'd primarily want in dealing him would be cap relief so they could pursue a top FA. They don't get this in the trade nor do they get a #2 offensive option to replace Aldridge's scoring which would make Kawhi's life that much more difficult.

This may be the best Knicks can hope for with Melo (taking back minimal salary) but I don't like it since he is still a prolific scorer and not the problem in NY. The Knicks need to address the true issue which is Phil Jackson who for some reason is trying to get rid of all their talent in Melo and Porzingis.

The Cavs can't do this for salary reasons but I don't like it for basketball reasons. Getting Green would be great but I'd hate to add Aldridge and Anthony to that roster. Both are very good players but only on the offensive end which isn't where Cavs need help and they certainly don't need both if they are keeping Love. Cavs also got dominated on the boards against Warriors and lose their best rebounder in Thompson who is also a great pick and roll defender. Aldridge has always been extremely soft player on the interior and would be an ill fit at center (which he'd be forced to play in this scenario) and Melo would probably be just a guy who gets you buckets off the bench.

PHX Mgt hears this. laughs a lot. recovers in time to hang up. No way Suns do a deal like this. period.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 01:54:50
Irving must be in trade. Love value is declining fast.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 02:34:23
Phxfan, it's been reported that they've thought about moving the 4 for Love. It gives them a cheap star that they control for 3 years.

4.) 21 Jun 2017 08:27:30
Cheap is right, Love isn't what he used to be! Everyone talks about Bledsoe being injury prone, why not bring up the fact that Love is injury prone, Suns dnt need that and I hope they're not wanting to trade for him!

Rumors have Chauncy Billups as the possible GM. He has mentioned prior, that he thinks Melo would fit nicely on this team. If Billups is hired, look for a Melo deal not too far behind.

2.) 20 Jun 2017 16:20:09
Cleveland is about to become a dysfunctional team. Gilbert got his championship title, Blow it up now Dan. First move, trade the dude that has lied to you a few times and is about to do it again.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 23:24:29
Sixers are getting hosed in this one. Okafor, Bayless, 2 1's and 3 2's? That's way too much for Irving. We'll just play with what we have, thanks.

Cavs Pacers Nets

Cavs Receive

Pacers receive
2021 first round pick Cavs
2019 & 2020 second round draft picks from Cavs
(Possibly Felder as well if desired)

Nets receive
(Rights to Cedi Osman)

Cavs receive George without giving up the big three and form their 4. No other reason needed lol

Pacers get a good return as far as talent and draft picks. Shumpert is a young guard for them and Lopez is a All star type center but only has a year left as well and the team can decide what to do from there. Plus they get rid of their older talent (Jefferson, Ellis) and receive a balanced return of talent some youth and draft picks.

Nets gid rid of Lopez and get Thompsons youth and JR is a local hero of marketing standpoint is a good fit. Plus JR can add some much needed scoring and could be a go to guy in BKN next year. Also those two are locked up so they can't leave the Nets lol Something for the return of Lopez most likely leaving.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 08:47:02
Other teams can offer multiple picks now. Why would the Pacers want future picks that they won't see in 2-4 years? If Cleveland is going to get PG, a third team is going to have to give some 2017 picks to Indiana.

2.) 19 Jun 2017 09:01:21
If the Celtics won't him, Cavs have no chance to get him. Celtics can offer a much better package. But they will only to this if PG sign an extension.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 14:36:00
Why would Nets do this? I can't stop laughing that you think JR is a local hero! Don't Nets fans read the papers and remember JR's stint with the Knicks?

Cavs - Pacers - Kings

Pacers receive
2019 Cavs second round pick

1.) 19 Jun 2017 07:23:58
I think Pacers will be able to do better than that for George from other teams looking to rent George for a year (and possibly sell him on why he should stay longer) . Celtics come to mind as a team that has assets to blow that offer out of the water without them sacrificing much.

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.


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



20 Nov 2016 01:42:53
Anyone else realize sites get their "trade rumors" from our site? lol example is the post so did where I said Melo would only be traded for Players other than the big three of the Cavs. Well today I found this on HNGN website haha

New York Knicks Rumors: NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony traded to Cleveland Cavaliers for 4 players

By Wilfredo Pantua Jr. ' Nov 19, 2016 02:44 AM EST
Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks
NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 13: (NEW YORK DAILIES OUT) Carmelo Anthony #7 of the New York Knicks in action against LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden on November 13, 2015 in New York City. The Cavaliers defeated the Knicks 90-84.

It seems that NBA trade rumors are bugging New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony until now. He's been a familiar figure for a couple of weeks in rumor mills and seems that he will continue to be the hot topic in the coming days. And heading to the Cleveland Cavalier looks to be a perfect fit for him.

Earlier reports have linked Melo to be traded to the Cavs to join good buddy LeBron James and match the 'super team' that the Golden State Warriors build this offseason. It is said that Melo will be moved to the Cavs in exchange for Kevin Love. However, the Cavs seems to be not inclined to trade Love this time as he is beginning to pick up his game and putting impressive numbers.

And with that in mind, another set of proposed deal is being offered to the Knicks removing Love from the equation. According to NBA Trade Rumors machine, since Love is playing well and clicking with the team so far, four players are said to be lined up to the New York Knicks to lure them to give up Carmelo Anthony.

Trade scenario is saying that a package of Tristan Thompson, Jordan McRae, Kay Felder, Channing Frye or Iman Shumpert plus a 2020 first-round draft pick is being tendered to the Knicks for Melo. And this works under the NBA trade and salary cap policy as per checking to ESPN NBA Trade Machine making it a legal deal.

The offer seems to be big but what big can it be having Melo on their roster. And with King James seems to have the say whenever the Cavs organization has a decision, he would push to have this deal happen. James has earlier expressed his dream of playing alongside with his good buddies of Anthony, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Paul and he wishes to make it happen before they retire.

In a report by Jobs and Hire, with Anthony struggling to fit in the triangle offense that Knicks president Phil Jackson is imposing this might force to bolt out with the Knicks and join LeBron for a chance to finally win a championship.

It is also said that being in the league for 13 years, Melo hasn't been in any NBA Finals. Among the top 5 draft pick in 2003, Anthony is the only one who have not yet win a championship unlike James, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade and even Darko Miličić have already accomplished.

Will the Cleveland Cavaliers pull off this rumored NBA trade deal to the New York Knicks to acquire Carmelo Anthony?


1.) 21 Nov 2016 00:11:30
I see a trade posted by me about 3 months ago about John Wall to Pistons written on other sports site. Lol.

2.) 21 Nov 2016 03:39:08
You know what's sad is we in a way can control trade Rumors and if we post something now and people seem to like it then it could explode into something big. It's my new goal now to make up a rumor and it reaches the actually player as a question from the reporters lol.

3.) 22 Nov 2016 00:09:41
Yeah, i'm going to be honest. this is just depressing. So this guy gets paid to read a message board with a bunch of people who bitch back and forth and make absurd trade rumors (I am one of those, so don't get offended) . and then he reposts it and calls that a career?

Amazing this is now considered a reputable source. Congrats ritequick. you are a big time NBA insider apparently?

4.) 22 Nov 2016 05:49:14
Yes Thank you it seems I am an insider for the NBA and let me tell you I must be able to read GMs minds now. Hey I could get paid to make up a few trade rumors here and there!



31 Oct 2016 16:04:01
Not going to happen and I'm not sure if I would want it to happen but if kind of makes sense now.

Cavs receive-Thompson

GSW receive- Love

Cavs get the Shooting guard and style of play they want and Golden State gets the big man who fits their style of play as well and they can create a unique height advantage without changing up their style.


1.) 31 Oct 2016 17:57:36
I think you're right.
K Love would be a great fit in GS, he can shoot the 3 and he can rebound. But no way they will give up K thompson for him now.

2.) 01 Nov 2016 16:21:04
How is he a great fit for golden state? They have enough bigger men that can shoot the 3 in green and Durant. And they have no major depth at the 2. Especially if losing klay.



24 Jul 2016 01:51:29
Cavs Denver

Cavs receive

Denver receives


1.) 24 Jul 2016 23:04:06
I think Cavs would get better from a trade like this but doesn't make a lot of sense for Nuggets who have a loaded front court (Faried, Arthur, Nurkic, Jokic) . They are getting a steal value wise and I think Love will put up his Minnesota numbers in Denver being the #1 option again.

I think any team that gets Love will be getting a steal as he likely won't be the 3rd option on whatever team he goes to and will benefit tremendously from increased role but won't have to give up that much since he stock is low now after not fitting in with Cavs and them arguably playing better without him.



25 Feb 2016 18:02:51
As everyone seems to expect, Cavs sign Joe Johnson once he is bought out from the Nets.
Cavs gets much needed depth with their injury luck and who know if he will start at SG or since there is only two months left in regular season they may start smith over Johnson and have Johnson run the second unit or they add him on the starting lineup to give the Cavs even more options offensively. Anyways I am excited as the Cavs are!


1.) 25 Feb 2016 21:02:31
I wouldn't count your chickens before they hatch. He hasn't indicated at all that's where he wants to go and I'm sure there are a lot of other teams that will be bidding for his help. The Thunder, Spurs, Raptors, Celtics and others could also be landing spots for him.

He said he was going to take some time to decide where he will play. So we will have to wait till at least Saturday to find out.

2.) 26 Feb 2016 18:34:33
And like I said there are other places for him to go. Now there are multiple reports saying the Miami is the top team to land him.

I don't see the Bucks doing it but for the Cavs and Celtics they are great moves. Cleveland adds a good replacement in Love with Horford plus gets younger and more talented youth with Parker and Middleton. Bradleys just a born winning and is underrated in my opinion. Boston just has so much to work with, this is just one angle they can go with this.

If Cleveland has a chance to get Paul George for Kevin Love straight up. They are going to take it! Cleveland loves Kevin and what he brings but they aren't dumb either. They know PG13 is better.

That's actually not bad except Howard hating his life. But where doesn't he? lol I honestly don't feel the Cavs will trade any of the Big Three and trade to add around them and get another star or even two if they are lucky. Look for the Cavs to add Wade and Melo without giving up the big three. Melo through trade. Wade through FA if lucky, maybe more likely a reduced salary sign and trade.

I'm telling you if so we're the Celtics I would go all out and try an acquire both Butler and George. Most likely isn't going to happen but with Thomas and Horford already. Adding Butler and George to those two would just be scary. Honestly that Celtics team may be better than the Warriors currently and is better than the Cavs right away as hard as it is for me to say.

Thompson is the only starter because Liggins actually usually starts but I do understand your point. Honestly I believe a trade probably won't happen even though the Cavs would love to get Melo for the right price. This may only happen if Boston or Toronto makes another significant improvement to their team and forces Cavs to try and make something happen. As we see now with Cousins anything can happen.
