Pels/ Bulls

To NOP - Picks #7 and 38, Valentine

To CHI - Pick #4

Pels have no need for Garland, but Bulls do. Pels pick up an early 2nd and a wing, which is a need. Hunter and Reddish likely work for the Pels at #7.

Bulls land their PG of the future.

Carter and 7th or no.

Knicks/ Hawks

To ATL - Pick #3, 2020 CHA 2nd, Frank

To NYK- Picks #8,10,17

Again, it sounds like the Hawks pitched the Knicks on Picks 8 and 10 for Pick 3, but the Knicks declined. Atlanta sweetens the pot with Pick 17, while getting a likely low to mid 30’s second next year, and take a flyer on Frank.

With the three picks the Knicks either package some or all of them in a trade for a star, or take Reddish (8), Clarke (10) and take a shot on Porter Jr. (17).

Collins/ Hayes/ Prince
Spellman/ Fernando/ Len.

Knicks/ Pels

To NYK - Pick #4, Williams, 2023 Lakers 1st

To NOP - Pick #3, Ntilikina, 2019 2nd

If all of the rumours are true, Grizz are set on Morant, Pels would like to team R. J. with Zion, and the Knicks may be warming up to taking Garland.

If all is true, Knicks hold the cards to extract an extra pick out of the Pels for the right to swap 3 and 4. Pels take Barrett, and a flyer on finding something in Frank along with an additional pick. Knicks add a rotation piece in Kenrich, another future 1st and Garland.

How does this help. Nybtrade barrett to Pelicans to get Holiday only.

Knicks/ Blazers

To NYK - Pick 25 (Turner

To POR - Ntilikina

With KD’s prospects of playing next season slim, Knicks #1 priority ruins the rest of the offseason, whether they sign him or not. Why not tank again next year, get another high pick, and still have the cap space that ET’s deal gives you with an additional young asset at 25.

Portland gives themselves plenty of breathing room below the tax, and takes a flyer that Frank can at least become offensively proficient enough to use as a rotation player. Worst case, they can use his defensive prowess.

Anyone else feel like it’s Kyrie and Harris to the Nets (waiving rights to Russell) after the Crabbe deal.

Can’t see it play out much differently than that. KD still apparently prefers NYK, LAC or staying, and Harris has also been linked to Brooklyn.

I think butler will get KD or butler to join him. I think that is s blessing for sixerz.

Im with the Kyrie and Harris to Nets with DLo getting S&T'd somewhere else (phoenix after a trade down from #6?) .

3.) 07 Jun 2019 21:04:55
Cant bu cap afford sign n trade if kyrie and Harris on roster. Have to trade him first.

4.) 07 Jun 2019 21:45:35
Correct. S&T of DLo would have yo happen first and there is no real reason why they don't do yhat trade first. But I think Phoenix would be very intertested in DLo (over Ball, for example) .

5.) 08 Jun 2019 02:37:47
I don't get the whole Irving to nets. As much as I want to see Russell in Phx. Irving on a better Boston team couldn't get them to the finals how does he help the lesser nets?

No way NO accepts that offer, and Dallas will not give up Doncic to get AD.

Spurs offseason

Personally, I don't think Tony's retiring, so I'm basing this post around him still being with the team:

1) Gasol declines $16M player option, resigns for 2 yrs, $22M ($11M AAV)

2) Ginobli staves off retirement for one more year, signs 1 yr, $5M

3) Lee opts in to player option

4) Dedmon declines player option and walks.

5) Mills walks

5) Spurs draft Mathais Lessort # 29, deal 2nd round pick for a future 2nd

6) Sign with cap space Kelly Olynik 2 yrs, $12.5M

7) Use vet exception on Shaun Livingston. If Warriors are most likely not going to have the ability to sign him. Him, Ginobli and Murray cover until Parker returns, and allows to play Parker less minutes once he's back.

8) Resign Simmons 3 yrs, $22M.

Celtics would match that offer for Olynyk.

Three team deal:

To CLE - Melo, Nelson

To DEN - Love, Rockets 2nd (via NYK)

To NYK - Faried, 2017 MEM 1st (via DEN), Shumpert

If Melo is going to waive his no trade,
Cleveland would be one of the few places he would agree to go. The Cavs also add a quality backup PG and clear about $5M of cap spend off their books to help with luxury tax payments.

Denver is looking for a star, and they get one in Love.

Knicks add a quality PF that would allow Zinger to spend more minutes at the five. A pick and a much needed wing defender also come New York's way.

Have that 2nd rd pick from NY go to Cleveland instead

2.) 22 Jan 2017 20:21:15
This just makes Cavs worse and Nuggets get a steal. Cavs aren't going to shake things up this late and Love is better suited as a 3rd option than Melo and provides rebounding and passing. It took two entire seasons for Love to adjust to the role and I think it would be even worse for Melo. Yes they add a backup pg but the lose Shumpert and their wing depth is already weak with JR injured.

3.) 22 Jan 2017 21:06:45
Terrible trade for the Cavs. Love fits the Cavs far better than Melo, is younger, and makes less money. Shumpert is a better and younger player than Nelson and there are free agent point guards that are just as good as Nelson. Denver gives up almost nothing for Love.

LeBron's dream scenario:

After LBJ's "Dream Team" comments, I looked around the NBA for a team that has the potential to make it happen. I came up with two possibilities, and both are below:

The LA Clippers

Paul is already there, so that takes care of one issue. To get Melo there would be easy, a Melo for Griffin deal or multi-team deal that moves Griffin out and Melo in.

Bron could get there via sign and trade, as Cleveland would most likely be willing to take back Jordan if LBJ forced the issue of an S&T.

Getting Wade is a bit more difficult, but again, if he requested an S&T from the Heat, and taking a pay cut to $10-$12M a year could work if the Heat have interest in J. J., which may not be far fetched. Both Wade and Melo's wives are Hollywood types, so living in L. A. would most likely be good with everyone.

Miami Heat

While it's crazy to think that LBJ would go back, it could be possible.

The Heat have approximately $45M to spend this offseason. If Wade and LBJ would be willing to split up $30M of that (Wade $12M, LBJ $18M), the Heat still have a decent amount of wiggle room.

To get Melo, I don't think it would be difficult to convince the Knicks to take a Melo for Dragic swap (some smaller pieces could or don't need to be added) .

Getting Paul is considerably more difficult. Two options are a multi team deal that sees Bosh and Winslow go out, Winslow to LAC, and Bosh to? That could stir up enough assets to send to LAC for Paul. The other option is just wait until next offseason for Paul and sign him (ETO for 17-18 season would need to be taken) .

I hate LBJ, so I don care to see him get what he wants, but thought it would be fun to run with his comments.

Or kyrie for paul. Love to Celtics bkn pick to Knicks and Melo to cavs (bits and pieces will of course be included) . Trade shumpert and frye as a salary dump. Sign wade and resign lebron.

2.) 25 Mar 2016 01:08:15
League sucks if they allow players to pull this stuff again.

3.) 25 Mar 2016 01:45:43
If I was Jim buss, I would tell the league that the trades would be unfair and creating a super team. Espically if it's the cavs to let them know how they like it.

4.) 25 Mar 2016 13:35:18
The league's got to be about competitive balance, not team stacking. The league has to approve all trades and contracts. I don't know exactly how they would stop this but the word "collusion" comes to mind. Teams cannot collude so players should be able to either. What James, Wade and Bosh did in Miami was wrong. Lesson learned. It should never happen again.

I know its a "players' league. " But there has to be limitations.

5.) 25 Mar 2016 14:09:09
I agree.

6.) 25 Mar 2016 15:34:19
I guess the one way the league could stop this would be if the owners forced a lock-out. Besides the team getting all the stars, I can't see anyone other owner in the league allowing this to happen.

Its inverse tanking. They modified the draft so that teams couldn't tank and be guaranteed the top pick. Maybe they'll need to come up with a free agency equivalent.

7.) 25 Mar 2016 18:52:05
What would happen if your team drafted all the players and they turned to stars.

8.) 25 Mar 2016 19:30:37
Drafted? I'd be fine with that. There's no organized collusion in that case.
What Bron's talking about is collusion.

9.) 25 Mar 2016 22:41:27
You should look up the definition of collusion.

secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others.

He isn't cheating or deceiving. He just wants to play with his friends. Take less money. Win championships. No one complained when he did it with miami 5 years ago. why is it an issue now? It won't happen. If it did, it simply shows a lack of confidence or ability to win on your opwn. Nothing illegal. look at duncan or nowitski, neiother makes what their actual worth is. they took payh cuts to sign better players. but that's fine. once lebron wants to do it, with 3 others, its an issue. when he did it with 2 others, nol biggie. come on, just let things happen.

besides, i'd still bet on the warriors beating them. remember when the lakers snagged payton and malone? howd that turn out?

10.) 26 Mar 2016 12:45:27
I should look up "collusion"? "It is an agreement among firms or individuals to divide a market, set prices, limit production or limit opportunities. "

And you know darn well exactly what I'm getting at- an organized attempt to upset the competitive balance in the league. Call it whatever you want. Its clearly against the best interest of the league.

As for your claim that nobody complained over the Miami thing, that's not correct. It was brought up in the Owners Meeting in which they discussed player-player tampering. That was reported in the NY Times.

Knicks/ Raptors

To TOR - Lance Thomas

To NYK - Delon Wright

Raptors are looking for both another wing and a PF. Thomas is a good addition based on his floor spacing and defense. He's also an expiring deal, meaning he contributes this year, especially with Carroll out a while longer, and the Raptors are not tied to his number next year.

Wright won't see the court in T. O. With Lowry and Joseph ahead of him on the depth chart. Knicks need a PG, why not give Delon a try.

Can’t sign and trade with other players from your current team involved. How many times does this need to be pointed out?!

If ever the Bucks were going to move Giannis, adding an exciting young PG, a couple of quality rotation pieces, cap flexibility, and five firsts is not a bad deal.

Not giving up a Dallas 1st when I can just cut Thomas for $1M.

Don’t think Kyrie is coming, and Butler would be a bad move if he were to be the only one to sign. Look at his Wolves tenure for my justification.
