Bucks/ Knicks

To MIL - Vonleh

To NYK - Wood, 2020 2nd (via Washington)

Bucks are said to be looking for a front court piece before Thursday. Vonleh is a nice fit and quality piece for the balance of the season.

Wood is expiring, and the Knicks get a decent 2nd, which is about what Vonleh is worth.

Take out Wood, and put in Maker!


2.) 05 Feb 2019 02:41:56
Sixers will give us 1st for Vonleh.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 04:14:52
Firstly, shizzee, I am also a Knicks fan.

Secondly, as good of a season as Noah has had, he’s still a rotation player on an expiring deal. Think it will be hard to find anyone willling to give up a first for him.

Knicks/ Sixers

To NYK - Chandler, Muscala, 2019 2nd via SAC, 2021 2nd back (originally Knicks)

To PHI - Matthews, Vonleh

Knicks keep cap space and pick up a couple of 2nds.

Philly gets much needed shooting and an backup big man upgrade.

Matthews can't be traded with another player in any trades.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:43:01
My bad, I knew that.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 06:12:04
Would be a pretty good deal if he could tho.

Three team deal

To HOU - Matthews

To ATL - Knight, Chriss, 2019 1st from Houston

To NYK - Lin, J. Anderson 2021 2nd from Houston

Houston is looking for a 3 and D wing. Instead of potentially being tied to Bazemore’s large salary next year, they ease their cap hit for 2020 by moving Knight and get an expiring but very productive Matthews.

Hawks take on Knight’s salary, but get the 1st they were looking for.

Knicks keep cap flexibility and add a small asset in the future 2nd.

Seems easier to do a Lin for Knight + 1st rounder deal than bringing Houston into it.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:44:19
Houston is looking for 3 and D, not another PG like Lin. That’s why the Knicks are involved.

Knicks/ Magic

To NYK - Grant, Martin, 2019 2nd (via BRO), 2021 2nd

To ORL - Ntilikina

Knicks clear an additional $5M in cap space this summer and move a guy clearly no longer being considered for lead guard of the future with DSJ around. The picks, while hard to only take 2 seconds for a former top 10 pick, speaks to Frank’s current market value.

Magic need a PG, and take a buy low shot that Frank figures out his game. Even if he does not become the starting lead guard, giving up a couple of 2nd’s for a quality multiple position defender is not a bad deal.

Mudiay for Grant 2nd

Save frank for Davis package

Wizards get Ntilikina Robinson Moore Hill 32
Suns get Wall
Knicks get Davis.
Pelicans get DSJ Knox Trier dotson
Ny 2020 22 Dal 2021 23 1st.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:11:31
You do realize that this leaves the Knicks with like 6 roster players and absolutely no depth next year shizzee.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 05:35:53
Why trade for Mudiay when Orlando can just sign him in the offseason after the Knicks blow their load on top tier FAs?


4.) 03 Feb 2019 14:52:14
Shizzee nobody wants Frank. The AD package would be Knox, dsj, Robinson two firsts unprotected.


 

 

03 Feb 2019 04:34:08
Knicks/ Kings

To NYK - Randolph, Koufos, 2019 2nd (via MIN or LAL)

To SAC - Matthews

Knicks and Kings finally hook up on a deal, but it’s Matthews instead of Kanter.

Kings are known to be looking for another shooter on the wing, which Matthews gives them. Knicks maintain cap space and add another pick in the 40-48 range.

Triangle O

1.) 03 Feb 2019 05:04:47
Give them Jordan I would resign Mathews.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:12:23
You can always sign him again in the offseason, and I don’t think they’ll want Jordan.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 14:51:50
We really don't want neither and Matthews will want to be bought out so he can join Houston/ Lakers (after AD trade) / Warriors.

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.

Triangle O

1.) 22 Jan 2017 17:23:44
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.

Thoughts?

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.

JoeB (for Boston I assume), why would the Pels care if he stays in the West if the plan is to rebuild with this trade?

Yes, if you’re planning on dealing an AD and then hoping to continue competing, I get your logic, but this is a team that’s out of the playoffs with AD on the team and is likely not a playoff contender after it for a while. Take the best package possible in this scenario, regardless of the conference it comes from.

This is simple. Knicks brass has been hoarding youth and picks, this leadership group finally appreciates that both are important. To deal a bunch of them to pick up a UFA that has hinted previously that he may be interested in playing in NY makes no sense.

If the youth is being moved, it will be for a guy still under contract, ie. AD. Sure, Kyrie gets more money potentially in a S&T, but if that’s the only way he’ll come, either give up less than the above or move on to the next FA down the list.

I don’t like Vucevic as a target for them unless they’re letting WCS walk and committing to making one of Bagley or Giles a PF long term. Yes, I know both are/ have played the PF position this year, but I feel like both would be better served at the 5.

The deal isn’t bad, but this looks like the apparent pieces that were in the deal pitched before the deadline that one of the teams passed on.

He can’t leave for C’s, they don’t have the space. Would have to request S&T. Don’t see him wanting Boston as his destination.
