Since the Arrival of Ayton, Anderson, Ariza the Dragan Bender will not see much minutes anymore.
He has not the big value, but Dirk may able to help him to improve. Brunson on the other hand will also see not much minutes behind Smith, Barea, Doncic and Harris run the playmaking but have some Talent.

Suns cannot get a good PG this year but before they trade for Joseph they should wait for next year to offer Terry Rozier a max (or Walker) what probalby neither Bosten (nor Charlotte) would match but both players may work fine for Suns!

To have Rozier and Brunson of the bench could work quite well!

- Brunson

- Bender (user their MLE)

Brunson could fight for a Starting spot, Dragan to backup Dirkster!


1.) 10 Sep 2018 10:31:03
I think Walker is going to be traded before the trade deadline. And Rozier is a good pointguard, but not a max player.

I like Bender going to Dallas, he still has potential to be a good player. Dallas should give a little more to get him, maybe a second round pick.



10 Aug 2018 09:09:19
How many x 1st picks does it need?

- Butler

- Wes
- Brunson
- x 1st

With Smith, Doncic, Butler, Barnes, Dirk and Jordan Mavs are back in the game!

Also with Butler, Wolves are not a win now team! Wes is a good Defender and they can build arround Towns and Wiggins and look for a Guard playmaker!


1.) 10 Aug 2018 14:02:22
Not very much for Butler. Wolves would ask for more.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 15:52:41
It wouldn’t work. The Mavs already have their pick out.



22 Jul 2018 16:49:20
Let`s assume, the Mavs roster works fine. And it will, DJ will dominate in the middle and Doncic was the Europe MVP! He is a ready Player that will have Impact. With DSJ, Doncic, Wes, Barnes, Dirk, DK there are already the players and when the chemistry fits they may battle for the 5th!
Let`s assume Brunson is a steal as well an the great PG with a lot of potential.
Let´s finally Wolves have the same Team as last year and still the missing and battle for 8 to 10 spot. Having Towns and Wiggins Brunson may be a good young complement!

To see the Mavs back battle for the Thing let`s see assume this trade in Feb:

- Wes
- Brunson
- A 1st pick
- Butler
- Rose

NICE! ; )


1.) 22 Jul 2018 19:18:01
The assumption rule applies.

2.) 22 Jul 2018 21:12:21
Mathew will get you a tim hardaway talent bc it is expiring, that 1st won't be higher 20th. Brunson is nowhere near the talent of a bad knee Rose. So what are you really offering?

3.) 23 Jul 2018 00:15:08
A 1st pick!

Butler can sign in 2019 as a FA (He can opt out and Mavs have the cap) . In Dallas he could the "THE" player in a really good Team with all around he needs to win (playmaking, shooting, rim Player) and not a complement to LeBron or to the Boston players.



08 Jul 2018 09:52:56
- Brunson
- Future 1st

- Bender

Having Ayton, Bender will not see much minutes. In Dallas he could try to compensate after Dirk.

At Phonix a PG is missing appart of Knight. Brunson is a promission prospect.

Finally I think Spurs will ask for to much for Leonard. So they will keep him and hope for a change or heart.

If Leonard really wants to be "THE" Player it makes no sence to join Boston or Lakers.

But at Dallas he could find next year a Playoff contender that he could move over the top - as the Go to guy with a lot of talent arround.

Suns add Brunson and Ayton:

Mavs add Doncic, Bender and Jordan:

Dirk (Bender)
Barnes > (Leonard 2019)

Mavs could Play smaller or larger and would have still Barea, Wes, Dirk as veterans from the bench.


1.) 08 Jul 2018 14:50:58
Don’t know that the Mavs are going to need to add a first at this point to get Bender, a second would most likely work.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 15:33:16
Except that, PHX did draft a PG in the French kid Okobo who is arguably as good as Brunson. Bender and Chriss are surely candidates to be moved but not in a deal like this one.



02 Jul 2018 12:40:53
I think Mavs look to have max cap next season. To adjust on demand. They could have approx. 60m CAP so 2 max contracts. AND bird rights on several players to leep like Jordon or Wes.

What do you think on:

-S&T Noel

If not:

-S&T Noel
-S&T Randle

To add a good PF could Mavs already "bring back"! I assume. There are 3 PF I think worth a look! Parker, Randle, Mirotic.

Dependent on Cousins the Mavs could still offer a Noel sign % trade. If Cousins joins LA, Pelicans need the Center, if not the Lakers. Neither the one nor the other Mavs could wait on Parker. Since Bucks need a rim protector as well. As already proposedm, the Money could be 10 or 20 m for 1 year as well:

-S&T Noel
-S&T Parker

Jordon, Mejri
Dirk, Randle
Barnes, Finney
Doncic, Wes, Curry
Smith, Barea, Brunson


1.) 02 Jul 2018 13:32:26
Mavs are looking for 1 year trades with Mathews. Melo, cousins, Leonard? Maybe randle. Not a very big list. 1 year deals are this years fad.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 18:23:46
If the Pels lose Cousins, they might do the deal. There's talk that they showed some interest in Noel.

In any case, Suns should be patient till next year to offer Rozier a max (or Walker). Both can attack the rim and pass to a free shooter or to Mr. Ayton!

Sending away Bender will not cost Suns a building block.

If Suns do not want another rookie on PG like Brunson from Mavs for this year, Clippers might be interested having Teodosic starting. And Suns take Beverly for the year.

Rozier and Beverly of the bench may be good PG in Suns future as well.

- Brunson

- Beverly

- Bender


1.) 12 Sep 2018 00:43:50
Didnt clips just draft guards?



31 Jul 2018 09:57:18
Why it will happen?

1. Mavs are a contender again.

2. Jimmy Butler will be "THE" Go To Guy, the single star player, but in a very competitive team! (Not like Durant).

Trade in February:

- Wes
- 2 x 1st round
- Butler

Wolves would get a good defender to play around Wiggins and picks to dangle for an playmaker.

Butler is a good defender and would be the leading scorer. He would fit perfect in the position less team. Mavs could go small and fast or classic lineup.

Jordan, Spalding,
Barnes, Dirk, Antetounkompo,
Butler, (Barnes),
Doncic, (Butler),
Smith, Brunson, Barea.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 14:57:17
That team is clearly not a contender.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 23:28:07
That team is not a contender they would need to make more moves, but that would make them better could possibly make playoffs 7 or 8 spot. if wolves would agree which I'm not sure they would I would like it for Mavs.



07 May 2018 00:34:49
PG to LA? You have Ingram, Ball, Randle ...

Mavs should try to steal him. They can build an amaizing team!

Trade Hood for Noel with the Cavs.
Trade McDermott for PG.
Draft Bamba or Ayton (Trent if available)

Bamba, Mejri, Powell
Barnes, Nowitzki, Kleber
George, Finney-Smith
Wes, Hood, Curry, Trent
Smith, Ferrel, Barea


1.) 07 May 2018 01:14:26
McDerott for PG? I hope your not referring to Paul George? If so that as to be the worst trade I have seen. Even if George just leaves anyways.

2.) 07 May 2018 03:29:09
Oh gosh, you’re back?

3.) 07 May 2018 19:29:42
I got to admit, after you make those nonsensical trades (McDermott for PG, seriously? ), your team is rather awful.

Well done.

Everybody would agree Hawks would get Jackson as they want (if the report is Right) also with the 5th pick plus #33 to a new team. Since Dallas takes Doncic and Bamba with #2 and #3 as part of the deal.

And ok, it is not the Birthday, it is the bird Rights because of Mr. Bird - anyway, Noel can traded and Denver would have the choise.

Doncic is good in play making but he is a SG/ SF with 6`8 and 220p doesn`t fit with Booker, Jackson at all. Young is a quick passing first PG that can also driver, shoot and defend.

That is part of the proposal. Ayton is nice. But Bamba would be also a good fit for the Mavs - having better defense at all but less offense, what Mavs could use for the time when Dirk retires.

So the trade can happen, if the Suns "want" playmaking, a young rim protector and cap to sign Gordon, Randle or LeBron? : )

Suns have Booker, Jackson and Bender, Warren. To add a offensive Center would be nice. But first of all play making is there need! Do you think CP3 will sign in Phonix? Or do you wanna trade your pic for Walker to the hornets? Noel gives them agile defense and rim protection, shooting they have. Young give them play making to become a good them.

You can wait for next year to get Maybe a good Point guard, by hoping (and playing) for another top 3 pic. But as you have learned from Booker - the good guys do not want to wait for years.

So finally Young is simply the best option for Suns this year. And the GM is away of it or why do you think he told everybody he will "not trade 1st"? Because he wanna chat? Or if he wanna increase the value?

If you wanna keep Knight and Chandler - fine - add the 2019 1st instead. I wanted only to be fair to take 26m bad contracts.

Why? To change Irving with CP?
