Miami Heat dream off-season

Bosh ruled clinically unable to play by a doctor chosen by the league and union, which means 100% of his salary is taken off the Heat's books

Haslem retires.

Pre-draft trade:
Heat get 39th and 50th picks
76ers get Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington

14th: Jarrett Allen
39th: Edmond Sumner
50th: Dwayne Bacon

Pre-free agency:
Waiters and Reed opt out, Heat release Josh McRoberts (2 mil penalty for 3 years)
Cap room before free agency: ~49.2 million

Free agency:
Sign Gordon Hayward to max 5 years
Re-sign James Johnson for 2 years 25 mil
Sign Deron Williams, Michael Beasley, and Jeff Withey to 2 years 4 mil apiece
Final cap room: 200k

PG: Dragic/ Williams/ Sumner
SG: Hayward/ Richardson/ Mcgruder
SF: Winslow/ Beasley/ Bacon
PF: Johnson/ Allen/ White
C: Whiteside/ Withey/?

2 million a year for any of those guys seems really low. If they are willing to sign for that little, there are better teams they could sign with if they are looking for a ring.

2.) 12 May 2017 17:54:19
Only Jazz can offer Hayward a 5 year contract, all other teams can offer 4 yr.

3.) 12 May 2017 18:54:48
Okay then, maybe Heat sign one of them with the remaining 7 mil in cap after they re-sign Johnson, then sign one of those 3 with the MLE, then don't sign the one remaining player.

And my bad on the Hayward years for his contract.

4.) 12 May 2017 22:18:21
I don't think anything is crazy unrealistic other than the FA signings. Its unlikely Hayward goes to Miami but they may get a meeting at least. The other signings are probably a little too low on the salary side especially since Miami isn't likely to be a contender for a ring.

Suns offseason
Finish 14th in west, get 3rd overall pick

Eric Bledsoe to CHI for Valentine, 16th overall pick, and 2019 lottery protected CHI 1st
Brandon Knight to Sacramento for WCS and 35th overall pick

3rd: Lonzo Ball (Celtics aren't letting go of Thomas just to get a rookie, I think they'll want Jackson)
16th: OG Anunoby
33rd: Alec Peters
35th: Josh Hart
52nd: Felipe Dos Ajos

Free agency:
Basically let everyone walk. Barbosa declines his option, Don't sign any RFA tender on Len, etc.
Sign Frank Mason as an undrafted FA

PG: Ball/ Ulis/ Mason
SG: Booker/ Valentine/ Hart
SF: Anunoby/ Warren/ Dudley
PF: Bender/ Chriss/ Peters
C: Chandler/ WCS/ Dos Ajos

Phoenix now has a desirable young core and plenty of cap room to work with.


1.) 08 Mar 2017 15:05:44
I don't really see a scenario where Fultz and Ball aren't the top two picks. Even for the Celtics, both of those guys have the size to guard the two so they can play with Thomas.

2.) 08 Mar 2017 15:16:18
If Fultz and Ball are off the board, then replace Ball with Dennis Smith.

3.) 08 Mar 2017 15:30:22
I don't think SAC is trading WCS for Knight.

4.) 09 Mar 2017 07:34:43
Surprised no one else commented on how terrible those trades are. Not getting WCS and a pick for almost as big of a fool on the court as Javale McGee. The other trade is even worse. Do you honestly believe you are going to get 3 (valentine rookie lottery pick) F'ing firsts for Bledsoe. That's a joke. Your projected picks are also wrong. Fultz and Ball number 1 for sure no matter what teams pick 1 and 2. Both have the ability to play 1 and 2 and ball is more than capable of playing the 3.



23 Feb 2017 15:15:55

Orlando gets Brandon Knight

Phoenix gets Nikola Vucevic and 2017 ORL 2nd.


1.) 23 Feb 2017 16:05:02
knight is at a low and Vucevic is pretty much the same no way you give more for him.



23 Feb 2017 15:09:03
Oklahoma City-Chicago

OKC gets Taj Gibson

Chicago gets Kyle Singler, Alex Abrines, and 2018 and 2019 OKC 2nds.


1.) 23 Feb 2017 15:34:50
nope as okc fan taj will ask for 13 mil next year.



22 Feb 2017 13:20:07

Charlotte gets Danilo Gallinari

Denver gets Marco Belinelli, Ramon Sessions, and lottery protected 2017 CHA 1st.

Denver dream offseason

Pre-draft trades:
Darrell Arthur, Jameer Nelson, 49th and 51st picks to BKN for the 57th pick
Wilson Chandler and 57th pick to OKC for 21st pick
Kenneth Faried and 13th and 21st picks to MIN for 7th pick and 2nds in 2018 and 2019 (from MIA)

7th pick: Jonathan Isaac

Pre-free agency:
Resign Plumlee for 2 years, 16 mil
Gallo declines player option, let Hibbert walk, and Mike Miller retires
Cap room heading into FA: 72.8 million

Free agency:
Sign Blake Griffin to max contract.
Sign Gordon Hayward to max contract
Cap room to spend on additional free agents, such as signing an additional backup big: 11.6 mil

PG: Mudiay/ Murray/?
SG: Barton/ Harris/ Beasley
SF: Hayward/ Isaac/?
PF: Griffin/ Hernangomez/?
C: Jokic/ Plumlee/?

It is unlikley Denver will sign Hayward and Griffin, but with a desirable young core and 72 million in cap space entering FA, who knows?

Nets aren't in a god awful position this offseason. They have tons of cap space, 2 1st rounders, 2 2nd rounders (assuming pacers miss playoffs), and they can trade Brook Lopez to get more picks. They're still in a tough spot, but it could be a lot worse for them right now.


1.) 03 Apr 2017 17:23:15
They have tons of cap space, but what quality free agent would want to go to that project? Likely they'll have to overpay players that are not worth the money they will be giving them. Those 2 1st round picks are going to be in the 22-26 range, so while they may add quality players, it is highly unlikely they can find a good future starter. The market for Lopez isn't really as great as it may seem; if they do trade him it seem like it will be for a mid-late first.

2.) 03 Apr 2017 19:00:10
Yes things are getting better (they only could) but they are still the worst team in the league and have no top young talent like most bad teams do since they haven't had their own draft pick for awhile. The issue is they don't even get back to square one until 2019 when they get their own picks then and then have to start to rebuild from nothing so its likely 3 to 4 years before they even accumulate solid young talent. Nets unless they hit the lotto on a few consecutive draft picks are going to be on the bottom of the league for awhile.

I think the best way Nets could accumulate assets is to use their cap space to take other team's bad contracts similar to what 76ers did to accumulate some first rounders. Signing FA outright I don't think will be that beneficial and if they do get some they'll likely have to overpay them. Better to get bad contracts from other teams and assets than just giving out bad contracts.

While it's obvious that New Orleans won the Cousins trade, I don't think Sacramento got absolutely screwed over. They get a pair of guards to help develop the team, and as of right now they won't get their own 1st rounder b/ c it's outside the top 10. Hopefully they don't waste their newly found picks and they can get something out of Hield.


1.) 20 Feb 2017 07:16:14
I have to tend to agree with your sentiments. I imagine that Kings got the best offer that they could for Cousins at the time. That it was so little is very surprising to me since I'd expect Celtics, Suns, Blazers, Nuggets or Bucks to all be willing to give up more than this. However, I think doing this trade is ultimately better than offering Cousins 200+ mill or holding on to him and having him walk for nothing. They probably should've dealt him earlier this year but moving him and rebuilding I think is ultimately the best move since they haven't gone in the right direction since they drafted Cousins. The front office and he always seemed to clash so I think a divorce is best for both sides.

Kings did really screw themselves with past moves tho since although their own pick should become more valuable after this trade (and they should keep it) its upside is limited since it still has swap rights with 76ers. Also they owe 76ers their 2019 pick when Kings should still be pretty bad. Best case scenario Kings pick falls in top 5 and Pelicans pick stays within the top 10 and Kings can add two high level prospects in this draft and another in 2018. They can add a pg like Smith and forward like Tatum to add to young pieces Richardson, WCS, Papagiannis, Labissiere, and Hield. They have a ton of money coming off the books so they can throw it at FA or hope to take on bad contracts and assets.

It makes perfect sense for a team like Pelicans to get him tho since they need immediate help for Davis and didn't have any other significant talent. They reportedly were offering a similar offer for Okafor just without Hield which says a lot about the steal they got. Depending on how their offseason goes (could lock up Cousins and add backcourt help) could be a very interesting team going into next season.

2.) 20 Feb 2017 08:31:46
Kings were bound to lose the trade no matter who they dealt Cousins to but with no surefire top pick nor a potential superstar a pick likely outside the top 10 and a prospect in Hield who hasn't played well thus far and is already 23 isn't the return most thought they'd get.

The Kings finally deciding this late they didn't want to pay Cousins all that money ultimately caused them to have to settle. It highlights the dysfunctional front office that is the heart of their problems. Cousins and his agent also sabotaged his value (in hopes of Kings resigning him to get most money) by saying he wouldn't resign with anyone who traded for him. That was likely the kiss of death and why many teams weren't willing to take the chance. After letting talent like Anderson and Gordon walk the Pelicans needed to take a risk like this.

3.) 20 Feb 2017 16:58:57
Given that Cousins said that he would resign, it was pretty terrible. They could have resigned him and then if they were feeling the same way during the trade deadline next year dealt him and he most likely would have more value since teams wouldn't need to be scared that he could leave.

4.) 20 Feb 2017 19:58:09
Ya I guess you are right although there is a one year freeze out after signing that he wouldn't be able to be traded so Kings would have to wait an additional year. So in that time he could potentially sabotage his value even more with his antics or get injured and being 28 on a very large 40+ mill contract could discourage a lot of teams. There are a lot of risks with waiting and having committed 200+ mill to him. If the front office didn't feel comfortable committing this money to him I think they ultimately made the right move by rebuilding now.

There is also the fear that Cousins changes his mind and doesn't want to resign for whatever reason and he is even harder to trade in his final year of his contract or worse he leaves for nothing.

I think trading Cousins was ultimately the correct move for Kings although the timing was a little late and thus value was low.



14 Feb 2017 17:40:47
This Raptors-Magic deal almost makes too much sense for both teams. The Raptors had an extra 1st and decided to use it to upgrade their main weakness. The Magic are somewhat rebuilding and bringing in Ross means Gordon can finally go back to PF.


1.) 14 Feb 2017 20:22:59
Ya I mean the initial Ibaka trade to Orlando looked bad from the start and only got worse as the season has gone on. Orlando was smart to get whatever they could for him with him unlikely to resign there and I assume this was there best offer and the other offers weren't that close or they would've held out until closer to the deadline.

Complete steal for Raptors who had been sliding but this could help them to move to possibly even the top of eastern conference. They also would've likely been one of the top suitors for Ibaka in FA so getting him now and his bird rights gives them a leg up in resigning him. The price, a late first and a sixth man in Ross is manageable to stomach. No clear replacement for Ross on their roster but Patterson could play some 3 and Powell can move DeRozan to the 3 at times. Ibaka could also play the 5 if they wanted a more versatile small ball lineup.

2.) 15 Feb 2017 04:13:29
Toronto should now trade Sullinger or Patterson, preferably Sullinger, for a backup wing.



09 Feb 2017 12:59:53
Let's get something straight here: if the Celtics decide to trade away their picks for a superstar, the Celtics are getting Butler OR George. The Celtics have the picks to get both, but they won't because they have Bradley. They like Bradley, they are willing to give him the contract he deserves next offseason, and they're not going to trade him away in a deal that involves Butler or George. Therefore, they are not going to trade for George AND Butler, it's one or the other.


1.) 09 Feb 2017 17:12:52
I think it makes more sense for Celtics to go after star big. Bradley has been playing great basketball, and the Celtics are very deep at the 1,2,3. That being said, if they trade for a big they should trade the '18 pick cause its filled with bigs, while if they trade for Butler they should trade the '17 pick because its a guard draft. I think best bet is to get a big.

2.) 11 Feb 2017 04:10:01
Ya I don't think it would be worth Celtics getting both Butler and George. I don't think George is that available so I think if anyone its going to be Butler. They should have gone after Cousins while he was available but I don't think Kings will deal him now. They could use a center upgrade tho.

Lakers would obviously have to get something. Would it be the Nets 2nd they got from Boston, $1 in cash considerations, or the draft rights to a 35 year old who was drafted 12 years ago?

The reason why I chose the 2018 Miami 1st was b/ c it was already top 7 protected and the Suns 1st this year is too valuable.
