Bulls - Gallinari, Faried, Nurkic, 2 future first.

Nuggets - Butler


1.) 07 Jan 2017 20:29:02
If Bulls trade Butler they want a young star like Wiggins, LaVine, Brown, Okafor and/ or top5 pick 2017

2.) 07 Jan 2017 21:01:35
"A young star like Okafor" hah

Provided one of the picks is denvers 2017 pick, the value is fair.

3.) 07 Jan 2017 21:43:23
never said the value is unfair
Bulls just won't give up a top10 player for that.
And the Nuggets pick won't give you a franchise player like Ball, Fultz, Smith Jr or Josh Jackson.
Obviously Okafor is part the deal and their 1st 2017 must be there too.

4.) 07 Jan 2017 22:17:32
That young star Okafor was a DNP-CD last night in Boston.

5.) 07 Jan 2017 23:04:22
Also That Nuggets pick will end up 8-12 (assuming no Millsap trade) Wendesday have Several notable stars selected in that zone and with how deep this class is the Bulls will get a guy like Issac, Monk, Nktilikina, Markkanen or Giles.

6.) 08 Jan 2017 05:11:11
Philly's a mess they have 3 young center that can start or become goos Starters and there messing it up trade one of them for a Pg



06 Dec 2016 20:50:42
Draft Knight:

Kings - Bender, Bledsoe, Warren, Chandler, Suns 2018 and 20 1st.

Wizards - Chriss, Sun 2017 1st (assuming top 5), Knight, Len

Suns - Wall, Cousins.

Bledsoe/ Afflalo/ Temple/ Bender/ WCS
Pick/ Beal/ Porter/ Chriss/ Len
Wall/ Booker/ FA/ Dudley/ Cousins

Kings get a ton of assests and future unprotected 1st.

Wizards get a top 5 pick Chriss and Knight an cut ties Wall who isn't taking them anywhere. The suns pick and their own allow for a promising haul in a great draft.

Suns give both young cornerstones a fresh start while retaining Booker, this is automatically a 50 win team and they have cap space for free agents.

I know people will say Boston could do better bit those Nets picks are worth less then over the summer and Ainge is super cheap.


1.) 06 Dec 2016 21:18:32
thats a pretty wild trade, has something like that ever happened in the nba?

2.) 06 Dec 2016 21:30:17
It's a pretty crazy trade but if the Suns had that team I don't think that they would finish in the bottom 5.

3.) 06 Dec 2016 21:50:48
That would be this years suns team which is already on pace to finish bottom 5.

4.) 06 Dec 2016 21:57:49
There is no way in a million years this would ever happen. Although I'll say the assets are actually pretty even, but it doesn't really make each team better. The Suns would have no assets and Cousins could just leave after next season, the 2018 would have to be a swap. Honestly I don't think any team would want this.

5.) 07 Dec 2016 14:09:00
Sooo. PHX gets 2 guys. who both don't want to be with the Suns. and PHX gives up 7 guys and 2 picks? Seriously? One year into their own "youth movement". and they break that up to put 2 All-Stars and a new group together to finish what .7th.8th in the West for 1 year until those guys leave? How many times has Boogie led the Kings to anything. other than getting coaches fired? So. Suns would walk away from this one for certain.

6.) 07 Dec 2016 21:03:06
Such a retarded trade idea for the Suns. Only thing suns will need to be a playoff team is a PG (next draft), a proper coach, some contract extensions (Len and Warren) and 2 years of patience.

Lets just assume things go really bad the next 3 years. Assuming Warren can't maintain his current form or stay healthy and will be an often injured a 15-5 guy, booker does not improve, Len does not improve, Bender only becomes a rich mans Channing Fyre and Chriss will turn out not to be an NBA player. That would still allow the Suns to shuffle and build via the draft. With that proposed trade they have nothing but two stars who have underperformed next to another star/ 2 semi stars (maybe not individually but on a team level, and that's what counts) . High risk, likelyhood of beating Clevland or GS still zero.

IF things turn out well. :
- Coach learns how to have the team run a proper offense. - Bender turns out to be another Dirk, just a bit more defense and a less offense.
- Len becomes a Top 10 rim protector and rebounder (note: Top 10, not top 5)
- Warren maintains the form he has shown so far and becomes a starting SF averaging 20-5 shooting 50% and 40% from three
- Chriss emerges into a decent pick and roll option and stretch 4/ 5 hybrid to complete the main front court rotation with Bender, Len and Warren
- Booker will be a consistant 20-25 ppg Scorer with proper shooting percentage
- Suns get to draft a proper PG in Ball next summer who can grow for one year behing Bledose before he takes over

None of these later points seems to far fetched. If the coach can put these great individual pieces together and get Spurs like efficiency from the available talent, this could be a great team for a long time. Chances are a lot higher with that than this silly Cousins+Wall idea.

7.) 09 Dec 2016 06:57:21
Could of just said Suns say no.



20 Nov 2016 22:53:04
Magic - Cousins

Kings - Gordon, Hezonja, Green, 17 and 19 1st.


1.) 21 Nov 2016 02:59:32
Not close.

2.) 21 Nov 2016 10:33:10
I like this for both sides.

Magic get a star and Cousins has a coach who can handle big personalities.

Kings get Gordon whose still really young and if used at Pf can be really effective partnered with WCS could be similar to a clippers Frontcourt athletically.
Hezonja hasn't played much and still has a lot of talent if given the chance to prove it.
Green is expiring and gives them the option to trade Gay for more pieces.
Having another pick in 2017 would be good as theirs loads of pg, sf, sf/ pf so they could land Potentially a star but build a young well rounded team quickly. The future pick will only help them especially if Cousins, Ibaka don't resign.
Cousins maybe a star but his on court and locker room troubles and coach worries knock his stock this is potentially a better deal then the Dwight deal and Dwight was on a solid playoff team.

3.) 21 Nov 2016 13:19:21
I like this trade
Herzonja could become the new Stojakovic :-)
and A Gordon brings entertainment to Sacramento.

4.) 21 Nov 2016 15:23:58
Cousins, Biyombo, Vucevic, Ibaka is a crowded front court.

5.) 21 Nov 2016 15:31:50
If I'm Sacramento I wouldn't be happy with that offer. The two prospects both have considerable upside but they are equally likely to never amount to nothing. If I'm dealing a young top 20 player in the league I'd want a more surefire prospect (Think Love was able to get Wiggins) . The draft pick seems to be a fringe lottery pick.

Magic are loaded in the frontcourt already and with Cousins, Vucevic, Ibaka and Biyombo more moves would have to be made to better balance out that roster which has many holes.

6.) 21 Nov 2016 18:23:32
Love doesn't have any baggage that Cousins does, teams who have a load of picks and young players won't take on Cousins unless their Coach is willing to and let's face it he has to be with the right coach I think Voge is 50/ 50 he could be very good in the way he has a firm but fair approach like malone and Cousins liked malone but he's defence driven which might cause problems as Cousins isn't Defencive driven. Kings want way more then what people are willing to give up some teams will jus wait it out as he ain't got long left on his contract.



13 Nov 2016 17:00:53
Thunder - Barnes

Complementary scorer next to Russ. Solves the shooting issue while playong stellar defense.

Mavericks - Kanter, Payne, 2 2nds.

If things go south they get a young PG with lots of potential and a solid inside presence.


1.) 13 Nov 2016 18:17:41
Barnes would be a great addition for Thunder but I don't think that offer convinces the Mavs to give him up. Mavs are looking bleak with Dirk aging and missing out on big FA a few years in a row. I think Sabonis would have to be involved too (and Mavs give up a filler big man)

2.) 13 Nov 2016 22:06:30
That's what i figure, Sabonis is to intriguing for us to deal imo.

3.) 13 Nov 2016 23:08:09
Ya I agree. Thunder could really use an upgrade at sf but I don't think realistically they are going to get a game-changer. They'll have to target older sf with not as complete of games as barnes. Rudy Gay's name has been thrown out there a lot but although he puts up good numbers I don't think he is nearly as good as they would suggest and both Grizzlies and Raptors got significantly better once they got rid of him.



10 Oct 2016 18:36:05
Jazz - Bledsoe, Butler.

Bulls - Favors, Hood.

Suns - Exum, Jazz 17 1st, Noel.

Sixers - Knight.


1.) 10 Oct 2016 19:37:36
Suns don't even laugh.

2.) 11 Oct 2016 02:24:19
No from the Bulls.

3.) 11 Oct 2016 06:10:19
As much as I like Jimmy Butler, I actually think that Chicago should take that trade.

4.) 11 Oct 2016 11:44:11
this would be a smart trade for Chicago, but i think they say no.

Fantasy trade.

I get - CP3, McCollum

He gets - Harden, Porzingas.


1.) 11 Oct 2016 18:30:31
Depends on what that would do to the rest of your roster. Are you solid at the F position without KP? I personally think he will have an all star year, and with harden taking the point position, his stats should rise too. I would say no, but it all depends on what your lineups would be before and after.

2.) 11 Oct 2016 23:58:28
You will be losing in rebounds but gaining in assists. You might lose in points, you will lose in blocks, will gain in steals, I would say no.

3.) 12 Oct 2016 00:27:20
Harden can match Paul's assist in a way. Porzingis can give you a lot. mcCollum only scores which Harden can also give. No way.



13 Sep 2016 13:58:00

Do you feel like the knicks should tank in a loaded draft? if so any prospects you're high on?


1.) 13 Sep 2016 14:21:04
simple answer. no.

2.) 13 Sep 2016 16:27:50
They should have traded C Anthony and tanked this draft. But they didn't.
But i like this gamble. Rose and Noah could be great.

3.) 14 Sep 2016 02:13:49
u think this trade should happen if Paul George demands trade or pacers do bad in beginning of season

Thunder get: Paul George
Pacers get: Andre Roberson 1 round pick 2020

U think fair share thoughts.

4.) 14 Sep 2016 02:22:58
If Rose played atleast 70 games and average like 18p/ 7a they'll be good.

5.) 14 Sep 2016 15:26:55
Rw okc I hope your joking.



11 Sep 2016 19:52:49
Not a sixers fan. But i think Embiid can be tj he best player in this league at some point.


1.) 11 Sep 2016 20:56:24
Haha ok.

2.) 11 Sep 2016 23:03:18
He can become the new Olajuwon, he can stay healty.

3.) 12 Sep 2016 14:19:24
Rather new Olowokandi ;)

4.) 13 Sep 2016 12:53:42
There's a much better chance Embid is out of the league in 5 years than him ever making an All Star Game.

5.) 13 Sep 2016 14:25:43
to everyone touting Embiid is the next olajuwon, or potentially the best player in the league. all I ask is. based on what?

Seriously. I think he is an interesting player. But he has played literally zero minutes on the floor in two years in the NBA.

His single season in NCAA was cut short because of injuries. And while he was nice in college, he wasn't this once in a generation monster. Besides, centers tend to look a lot better in NCAA seeing as they are playing against a lot of smaller guys.

Let the man play a game in the NBA. Because at this point, your comments are beyond foolish.

Thats as stupid as going, well, tebow will be the next mickey mantle, because well, he looks good in a baseball uniform.

Seriously, its like the same statement. Looking the part and actually being average, or good, or great, or as thunderfan says. the greatest player in the entire league. i mean, just come on. that's absurd.



09 Sep 2016 14:39:20
Phx goes all in at 2017 draft.

Suns - George, Westbrook, Butler.

Thunder - Booker, Bender, Chandler.

Bulls - Bledsoe, Warren, Kanter, Miles.

Pacers - Knight, Suns 2017 1st (top 5 pick) Roberson, Chriss.

Really big trade that won't happen but the value is fair imo.




Jackson (top 5 pick)

Everyone has a future and phx has the cap space and star power to build a super team.


1.) 09 Sep 2016 18:00:46
If we trade PG13, i want Booker and Bender in return :-), but i could change my mind. If this Indy team struggles and that pick really delivers Jackson

The Bulls better take the Boston offer. I don't like Kanter.

I do like the Booker+ Bender trade for Westbrook. But OKC should keep Westbrook and kick GS ass.



04 Sep 2016 13:46:51
Wizards swap Porter for Kanter.

Pelicans - Gortat, 2nd.

Wizards - Evans.

So Curry? He is an underrated ball handler and secondary playmaker. A uber athlete and crafty scorer. He needs to add weight but a team where he can play with defenders and a point foward would be his best option, Philly in particular seems like a great fit.

Holiday is a better FA fithe, and the Bulls can get a better offer from Boston or Denver

We Don't need to make a move, internal development is key. Between Dipo, Adams, Roberson, Kanter, Grant, Abrines, Payne and Sabonis we have a deep talented young team. And signing a Shooting 3 in FA will helprobably us be a 4th seed foextract the next 3-5 years.
