Cavs I feel may make a last second push for Carmelo. Won't give up Love but maybe a trade like this can work for all teams.

Cavs Knicks Timberwolves

Cavs receives
Melo
Rose
Hill
OQuinn

Knicks receives
Thompson
Frye
Rubio
Muhammad
2017 second round picks from Wolves and Cavs

Wolves receives
Shumpert

Terrible trade for the Cavs. They end up with no defense and 5 players that need a lot of touches to be effective.


2.) 20 Feb 2017 19:03:16
Cavs aren't going to trade over a quarter of their team and two starters this late. Also that team wouldn't even be good. I'd hate to have Melo as my 3rd option since he doesn't do much other than score so he wouldn't be all that effective unless he comes off the bench. Who would they play at sg after they trade away Smith and Shumpert? The teams defense would be horrible can't have a team full of scorers and ball dominant players. This late in the season that would be a recipe for disaster ruining the team's chemistry and possibly leading to an early exit from playoffs.

Don't think Twolves would even do that trade.


3.) 20 Feb 2017 20:48:40
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.

Lebron for Baker Noah makes more sense.

This is a trade to make one person happy.
And a trade to completely deplete the defense of another.


2.) 17 Feb 2017 15:56:06
Comme on. P George and Butler, without giving up the Nets 2017 pick :-) :-) :-)


3.) 17 Feb 2017 16:25:51
It actually works best with the Cavs, as they make moves LeBron would like without giving up TOO much. It's a steep cost in personnel for the Celtics, but gets them two really good players with the 17 Nets pick still intact. The Pacers will think about it if they really like Smart, as Crowder is a really solid player and the pick should be good. The one team that I question is the Bulls. They're going to need a couple of firsts. Bradley is Butler light. so essentially to downgrade to Bradley, they're taking on Brown who's going to be a really good player. Shumpert, Teague, Johnson, etc are just salary filler though. They need more future value. I don't know if it would require the Nets pick. but the Celtics would need to ship out the Memphis, Clippers and their own pick to make it work. I don't know if they'll do that.


4.) 17 Feb 2017 16:40:25
Your right in that sense Gasupo. But realistically this trade scenario would never happen.


5.) 17 Feb 2017 19:58:48
This trade is terrible for the Cavs. First, they would be facilitating a trade that makes Boston a favorite in the East. Next the value for them is terrible ( TT is more valuable than Wade who is on his last leg, Frye is more valuable than Rondo who will probably be bought out and is out of Chicagos rotation, Shumpert fits the Cavs offense far better than MCW can, and the first and 2nd round picks are both more valuable than Christmas) . Third, The Cavs end up with 0 centers, 1 injured Pf, and sf/ pf on a ten day contract, and Christmas who wouldn't be in the rotation. Finally, They end up with 3 pgs, a sg, and a small forward that all need the ball in their hands to play well, and all of the guys being traded to them destroy the spacing of the offense. Also, the Bulls and the Pacers aren't getting very good value for what they are giving up. The Bulls should be getting atleast the Brooklyn pick and the Pacers should probably get 2 more firsts. Literally, you just have Boston fleecing 3 teams.

Cavs New York Clippers
Completely unrealistic but possibly one of the best trades as far as value and desires for each team is concerned.

Clippers get Lebron and Melo

Clippers receives:
Lebron
Carmelo
Jr Smith
Felder
Holiday
OQuinn

Clippers trades:
Griffin
Jordan
Rivers
Crawford
Johnson
Felton

Knicks end Melo drama and gets great return.

Knicks receives:
Thompson
Frye
Rivers
Reddick
Johnson

Knicks trade:
Carmelo
Rose
OQuinn
Holiday

Cavs do lose Lebron but add 2 stars and add to the young core and current depth.

Cavs receives:
Jordan
Griffin
Rose
Crawford
Felton

Cavs trade:
Lebron
Thompson
Frye
Jr Smith
Felder

The Cavs get terrible value. They end up with 3 big men and 3 point guards. 2 of the guys can walk in the off season and they lose the best player in the world.

No :-)

The pacers would only consider trading PG13 for the two Nets picks and J Brown.


2.) 09 Feb 2017 15:40:12
I would argue the package for Butler is better while George is the better player. It would probably be too difficult getting both players, but one is more than reasonable.


3.) 10 Feb 2017 07:32:43
Celtics not giving all that for Jimmy.


4.) 10 Feb 2017 07:33:23
They not giving up all that for PG either.


 

 

09 Feb 2017 10:11:50
Does this trade work for all parties?

Cleveland New York Dallas

Cleveland trades: Thompson, Smith, Frye, Shumpert, Jefferson, Felder, future 2nd round pick

Cleveland receives: Melo, Rose, D Williams, OQuinn, Plumlee

New York trades: Melo, Rose, OQuinn, Plumlee

New York Receives: Matthews, Bogut, Frye, Jefferson, Felder, Cavs Future second round pick

Dallas trades: Bogut, Matthews, Williams

Dallas receives: Thompson, Smith, Shumpert

Ritequick24

1.) 09 Feb 2017 13:10:08
New York would probably want another 2nd, and Dallas doesn't want to trade away Matthews unless it's for a superstar player.


2.) 10 Feb 2017 23:36:13
The Cavs would end up with one of the worst defenses in NBA history.

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

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?

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.
GSW-Cavs

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.

Ritequick24

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.

Cavs Denver

Cavs receive

Chandler
Lauvergne

Denver receives
Love
Shumpert.

Ritequick24

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!

Ritequick24

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'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.

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.

I like it for all parties value wise but salary wise it doesn't work unfortunately. Don't know the exact numbers but I think Boston is taking in 20 mill or so and so is the Cavs. Even with the Cavs trade exceptions they can't make it work for them and even adding Amir Johnson I don't think it works for the Celtics so adjusting is needed.
