Who wins/ loses in trade? Who accepts/ doesn't?

Cavs Phx LAC Det

Phx receives

Phoenix obviously does this to get what they want in Kyrie with the package of Bledsoe Chandler and Bender plus the picks. Knight value dropped big time since the injury and is a chance to get rid of his contract. Plus Rivers comes in as a similar style back up and can play now.

Det receives
T. Chandler

Detroit gives up Drummond and Smith but gets Love who offensively we know helps the Pistons big time along with Harris and Chandler replaces Drummonds big body and rebounding and defensive role.

LAC receives
Ish Smith
2018 first round from Phoenix
2021 first round from Phoenix(Miami pick)

^^^ Clippers lose Jordan and Rivers and gain Thompson who does a lot of what Jordan did at a reduced price. Shumpert and Smith are both solid rotational players. Bender still has potential and the two first round picks addition sets the course for the future while the whole package adds depth.

Cavs receive

^^^ Yes I believe the Cavs would want to do this because of the value they receive. Plus a starting line up of Bledsoe, Rose, James, Drummond, Jordan would defensively help stop GS. I understand the 4th quarter problem though. Still believe with the lack of value they seem to be receiving for Irving, this maximizes the most of what the Cavs can get talent wise.


1.) 13 Aug 2017 17:42:07
No sense for the Cavs. Jordan and Drummond can't play on the court at the same time. Neither can shoot, or defend the pick and roll. Both would just clog up the offensive lane, limiting what slashers like Bron, Rose and Bledsoe do well. And then there's the whole foul shot thing. Two starters who shoot around 40% from the line is a disaster.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 23:33:48
Terrible trade for cavs to get jordan and drummond. that's the opposite of what you want vs golden state. Bledsoe rose and lebron all like to drive and the lane would be way to clogged thus limiting all their game. You also need shooters in todays nba to win. And defensive rose isn't good and neither of drummond and deandre would be able to guard small ball 4's.

4 team trade Cavs LAC Phx Det

Detroit receives
Future 1st from Cavs

Phoenix receives
R. Jackson

Cavs receive
D. Jordan
A. Drummond

Clippers receive


1.) 03 Aug 2017 21:44:01
Why would the Cavs want two starting centers?

2.) 03 Aug 2017 21:55:56
I don't get how Clippers get Irving and Warren for Jordan and Rivers or why Cavs would want both Jordan and Drummond. I think trade could be simplified without Pistons who are an awkward fit.

3.) 03 Aug 2017 22:31:48
Yeah two 20 mill a year centers that can't hit free throws sounds like a bad idea. Cleveland says no.

4.) 03 Aug 2017 23:43:51
Do you even watch the NBA? that's just bad.

5.) 04 Aug 2017 11:06:02
Another horrible trade thought! Smh! Suns wouldn't do that garbage.

1.) 29 Jul 2017 05:31:31
I can't see Cavs doing that. Not only does it not make them better in short term, but Westbrook can bolt after this season with Lebron and Cavs would be left with basically no young pieces on their roster and only Thompson could likely fetch a decent return.



28 Jul 2017 06:04:33


2020 first round pick from Knicks



Hardaway Jr/ Lee/Ntilikina

2019 & 2020 second round pick from Cavs



1.) 28 Jul 2017 15:05:15
If the Knicks would take Anderson-the Melo trade to Hous would have happened already.

2.) 28 Jul 2017 17:56:25
This is true. But alas, this guy put no first names. I think he's talking about the Spurs anderson.

3.) 28 Jul 2017 18:13:16
Pistons say no for sure to that, they either want a good young player or a draft pick.

4.) 28 Jul 2017 21:37:41
You have Irving netting the cavs 3 all star forwards. Am I missing something or is this just stupid?

Oh wait. You give up bad contracts also in shumpert smith and Thompson.

Seriously. You aren't serious. Right?

5.) 30 Jul 2017 01:34:47
Pistons losing way too much out of this to add even worse contracts.

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


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.



14 Jan 2017 14:31:40
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

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.

Cavs would throw a party with all of that and getting rid of Jrs contract! Irving trade request would be a blessing in disguise for all that!

Why would San Antonio do this? They are real close to Warriors status. If they somehow get Irving then Leonard being Leader and Kyrie being the wing man again. Sorry Kyrie truth in San An. They will be right there to challenge the Warriors in the West.

I'm still a Kyrie fan and won't get jaded to much over him but there is no way I would pick Kyrie over Lillard. Lillard can win games but for some reason Kyrie never has been able to. So I doubt Portland would give in and blow up their team but if Portland called Cavs would do it. Portlands not ready to blow it up yet.

If they sign rose then honestly they are only one big trade to being close to the level of the warriors. Honestly Warriors are on a level all their own and I don't see any available players who could take us past the Warriors status but close to it. Honestly I don't believe they will trade Kevin now unless a rare opportunity presents itself. I do believe this would give the Cavs something to think about as far as starting center or the 5th player next year if those four are playing.

I do believe they will attempt to start both Irving and Rose sometime just to check it out and with that being the case TT most likely won't be in the game because space will be needed so Frye becomes more valuable with this move. I believe they should if they already haven't looked at a trade involving, TT, Shumpert, and even possibly Felder or Osman or both depending on the deal, for a All star caliber player like Melo, Drummond, Aldridge, or whoever else that fits the mold.
