Sign and trade Noel for love


1.) 24 Feb 2018 23:17:04
Believable. Love expires soon enough, but his age is a hang-up for a rebuilding team. How many mature, white, 6-10" power forwards does DAL need? Only 2 seasons more of his deal, he'll opt in, but that should be right around the time Smith jr, and this year's pick are coming into their own.

2.) 24 Feb 2018 23:17:18
An allstar for a guy that his past two teams haven't wanted that is a free agent?

3.) 25 Feb 2018 00:06:55
As rkenne said, why would someone give an all star away for absolutely nothing? Love has value, there’s no reason to give him away.

4.) 25 Feb 2018 02:24:11
Agreed Bmiller, Noel is a joke of a return. After being dealt BEFORE Okafor out of Philly and disappointing last season, he's followed that up with averaging 4 and 4 in just 12 games this year. That also included a pretty long stretch where RC was benching him.

Yes, Love will not get you an All-Star return, but he's worth a heck of a lot more than Noel.

5.) 25 Feb 2018 02:51:46
Love just don't fit they can get Noel for like one year 10 MIL and save money to resign Hood and James play pf. Then Dallas can flip later.

6.) 25 Feb 2018 11:36:20
Love is a great teamplayer.

7.) 25 Feb 2018 13:27:18
True in what world is Noel getting 10 million this summer? No one has cap space and he's done nothing the past 2 years.

8.) 25 Feb 2018 19:21:39
Love struggles to score in finals against the warriors so golden state wins. Green locks him down. He got to go. Like you said no teams have cap but Dallas can sign and trade him for love and Dallas has some cap to eat up rest love contract.

I would trade love for d12 straight up. It's about what the cavs need. They just got hood, hill and Clarkson to cover for Irving scoring plus more so love for Howard will give defense and Howard will average at least 12 and 12 plus play way better defense and protect rim better then Thompson and love.
2018/ 2019 cavs
Hill/ Clarkson
Smith/ hood
Osman/ korver
James/ green
Howard/ Thompson
2019 dump Smith and hill. Trade Thompson for nothing with his expiring contract. Have cap to add to James, hood, Osman Brook pick Clarkson and can resign Howard.



24 Feb 2018 22:15:02
Cleveland gets Barnes and second round pick.

Dallas gets Thompson and Smith plus Brook pick.

Dallas can afford to take on Thompson for two years and Jr Smith for one while they rebuild. So they can have Smith plus two other top 7 picks this year.

Cleveland resigns james and hood.



1.) 24 Feb 2018 23:17:39
Cavs can't pass quick enough.

2.) 24 Feb 2018 23:23:03
Barnes gets a decent pick in return, and then the long term high pay of Smith, and Thompson are only partially covered if that pick is 7 or higher. DAL needs more encouragement. Thompson, and the pick for a good player, Smith, and Hood for another player. Smith, and Thompson together is 30 mil. Its quite a Horse pill to swallow.

3.) 25 Feb 2018 01:11:01
Brook is 7th but there game behind or two from being last. Two years for Thompson and one year for Smith not long term money. the trade would be done on draft night so they would know the pick but I'm betting it's top 5. They could trade Brook and there own for number one or two if right team gets number one pickand two.

4.) 25 Feb 2018 11:39:15
Dallas should jump on this.

It's a fair trade, but i'm not sure why Cleveland should trade for Barnes?

5.) 25 Feb 2018 19:25:23
Dallas will hurry this trade especially if they already have pick two and get pick 5 6 or 7. Cleveland will do it for a more experienced player under great coach to play with James. It's who cavs should drafted over waiters anyway.



18 Feb 2018 23:54:53
Lakers trade Deng and cavs first and a future first pick plus Hart for a future 2nd round pick and have 81 to spend.

Durant and James get 29 MIL each.

They now have 23 left.

Sign Avery Bradley for 4 yrs. 60 MIL. First year at 13 with 10 left.

Sign Noel 4 years 40 MIL.

Use mle on Evans for 4 years.


Durant desides to leave because he figures warriors can't afford the team so he joins Lakers before George does.


1.) 18 Feb 2018 23:58:05
Meant Evans for 4 years 40mil and noel get mle for 4 years.

2.) 19 Feb 2018 00:42:51
I don't think the Lakers would have to trade two firsts and a decent young prospect just to get rid of Deng's contract.

3.) 19 Feb 2018 00:43:29
Also Durant going to the Lakers is not going to happen.

4.) 19 Feb 2018 01:32:21
The trade would have to be for Lebron, if the Cavs are the team to do it. If Lebron walked that would be right at the soft cap line.

5.) 19 Feb 2018 02:09:55
I'd rather try to land Hood, or keep Pope than pay Bradley 15 mil. Pope is younger, and #'s are nearly identical.

6.) 19 Feb 2018 03:03:03
Durant is not leaving Lakers anytime soon.



12 Feb 2018 02:28:36
Lakers dream and puts them on top.
Lakers Trade Ingram Deng and two first for Leonard.
Have 83 MIL in cap sign George James and Jordan. Use mle on Evans. Use the mini level on Noel. And Tony Allen for much he can get.
Ball can use this whole summer and work on 3pt. Shooting.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 04:23:07
Not nearly enough for Leonard. If SA makes him available, they’ll get much better offers.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 07:13:59
Remember he b will be an expiring contract so teams not going to give up house for him. Like with Paul George and cp3.

3.) 12 Feb 2018 13:35:49
Still, it would wind up being more than that. Just getting rid of Deng would take something like Ingram, or both of those 1st rounders, and that's when they would have been good. If Pop sees these types of moves on the horizon, there's no way he'll give much value to those picks. You'd have to add in Kuzma or Ball, or possibly both, for it to be a consideration.

There's also a big difference between Leonard and George. As far as I can tell, Leonard hasn't said he's leaving the team, and wants to go to one specific other team. That completely tanked George's trade value.

4.) 12 Feb 2018 17:59:28
i think this trade would be most likely to happen later in summer 18 or before the 19 deadline. so if kawhi doesn't get his extension by start of next season. his trade value could be similar to what pg’s was, it kinda depends how he comes back this year and his impact in the playoffs. the later the trade happens makes things more interesting for what the lakers offer.

deng’s last contract year is 19/ 20 so the closer to that, the less “sweetening” required. also ingram would be up for extension that would kick in for 20/ 21 season i believe, so that is 20+ mil a season for multiple years, so that starts once deng expires, spurs wouldn’t ever be paying both at once. also, if lakers don’t get any stars in FA, i think ingram could breakout next year, honestly i wouldn't trade him period.

but i'd say one first lightly protected would be fair (pg trade was for two good young players, no picks and oladipo was already on his extension payscale)

5.) 12 Feb 2018 18:04:13
You never add two potential stars for expiring contract. Plus two first.



09 Feb 2018 08:16:26
Lakers Trade 2020 pick top 7 protected, cavs 2018 pick, and Deng to a rebuilding team for trade exemption and second round pick on draft night. Lakers now have 79 MIL in cap sign James George and Jordan.
Kuzma 6th man and still have mle.


1.) 09 Feb 2018 09:09:31
I don't think you can sign those three players with 79 M

P George is going to resign in OKC for a max contract.
And James is going to Houston.
Jordan would want more than 23 M or he stays with the clippers.

2.) 09 Feb 2018 19:48:52
28 for George with player option. 30 James with player option and Jordan for 3 years 7o MIL 21, 23.5 and 25.5.

Wondering what lakes well do with Randle dude been balling and been pretty efficient


1.) 26 Feb 2018 22:40:08
Probably only because it's contract year.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 23:45:15
Obviously a lot depends on George and Lebron. If they could get one of them, Randle is probably gone in place of some veterans on one year deals and if they get both, they'll basically only have their MLE, minimum contracts, and the draft to fill out the roster. I don't see how Randle would fit. He doesn't shoot or defend well and that's what the roster will need out of the center position ( he can't play pf at all beside LeBron) .

That said, if they strike out this year on stars, I think he gets something like 3 years 18 to 27 million total or 6 to 9 million a year depending on who else is interested in him. I think they would be confident in their ability to get rid of Deng's contract in the last year either by trade or a stretch that would be much more palatable. So it wouldn't effect their ability to go out and get to stars, plus they would have money left over to fill out the roster more.



22 Feb 2018 09:47:06
Something different from me.

Can the cavs give James a four year max extension totaling to five years signed. Then after season stretch him so he gets paid the same amount but it hits the cap over a 11 year period giving the cavs money to resign Hood to whatever.


1.) 22 Feb 2018 10:24:21
Why would they do that? Stretching someone means you are releasing them. Then the money is distributed over multiple years rather than a 1 time cap hit. If Lebron opts out, he's off the books and the Cavs owe him no money.

2.) 22 Feb 2018 21:09:09
Okay I wasn't sure if when you get stretched do you get released or not. I thought you could keep the player and stretch him.

3.) 23 Feb 2018 16:23:22
That's what Lakes should do with Deng extend him 3 years totaling 5 and then stretch release. Cap hit 3.2 for 11 years.



21 Feb 2018 05:45:55
Just something to think about but could work. But there's point is if Lakers can trade those 3 players for a star player under the old cap they can sign 3 stars also.

Trade ball, Ingram and Deng plus two first round picks for Leonard. Now Lakers have about 78 MIL in cap. James George and Paul 26 each plus mle on Noel. Especially if warriors win again those players would take 26 each to compete with them. Or the Lakers can do the same package someone else. Ball Ingram and the picks and talking Deng 42 MIl should get you a star


1.) 21 Feb 2018 06:48:54
It could be done. It's pushing the boundaries of imagination, but I never see the actual trades that occur coming. Pieces, but there's always something unpredictable involved. Ball, and his worn out welcome is the X factor here. Not sure if that's the case, or what "agreements" LAL has cooked up. They surely didn't trade away Clarkson, and Nance for expiring deals by accident.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 08:28:18
That's the best LA can do. Trade Deng in a package for a star.
K Leonard, D Lillard, Butler, .

3.) 21 Feb 2018 13:33:45
It would be worth considering, but the question is, how do teams see Ball right now and who's actually available? I can't see the Timberwolves trading Butler. He's in a great situation long term and he seems to really like Thibs. Portland doesn't seem like they're on the verge of blowing it up and trading Leonard doesn't really seem like a move the Spurs would make. Also, if Lillard or Leonard were available, the Lakers wouldn't be the only team bidding for them.

I think the other thing they would need to consider is what if they strike out on Lebron and George. I'm not sure they're the favorite to land George right now and they might be in 3rd place in the Lebron race.

4.) 21 Feb 2018 21:46:23
Butler going to want a Max after the next season and then Kat the following don't think Minny will keep team and pay the money. For 3 Max plus pay teague, a bench Gibson, dieng, minny can't do. So with ball, Ingram, Wiggins and Kat would be special to build around.

Leonard may or may not commit so spurs would accept the package and broom Ingram into a beast. Instead losing him for nothing like ock did on Durant. Be smart like Indy.

I wanna see golden state pay 4 Max contracts so Thompson can be odd man to get traded. So three team trade can be done where Lakers land Thompson and give up 2 first ball Ingram and Deng.

None of this is highly to happen but certain situations can trigger. Like Lakers being aggressive, players talking on the low and having agent demand trade. Or the teams feel we don't wanna risk losing for nothing so let's get value. Just able to happen but highly unlikely.



11 Feb 2018 00:27:53
Lakers have 62 to spend next year.

If they can dump Deng that will give them 80.

If they stretch him they will have 73.

So either way Lakers can add 2 stars, quality player and have mle. Plus have ball Ingram kuzma Hart Ennis and there some one else to who young. If ball Ingram and Kuzma turn out to be actually stars or borderline stars like snubs they be hard to beat. If can't add stars just take on bad contracts with one year left and get picks and develop youth. In 2019 there Thompson, Leonard whiteside plus others. Thompson and whiteside would fit good with Ingram kuzma and ball.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 01:59:55
Why would anyone trade a contract with 1 year left and give up a pick? Expiring contracts have value. Look at what the Cavs just turned a bunch of expiring contracts into.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 04:23:00
This different. It's beginning of season and teams need cap. So give up your pick and Lakers will eat that last year up.



02 Feb 2018 06:20:52
Say the wolves can trade everyone but towns Wiggins and Butler for future picks and trade exceptions. Then sign James and or even Avery Bradley.
Killer line up. Bradley really a two but would just play defense on curry and shoot 3's.king James would do way less handling the ball. This would top warriors. Plus could use picks they get and trade exceptions to fill roster.

Say the raptors trade jv for nothing and sign James and then Noel for the low

James going to do something if cavs don't make finals. Do hope cavs do a sign and trade for paul george with love and that Brook pick for him to stay.then it has to get healthy and he get it together


1.) 02 Feb 2018 06:40:42
It would be smart to trade James now rather than pray for a sign and trade. Gilbert probably has plans on getting a little something when James leaves. Maybe James, and he already have an exit strategy in place? MIN, and TOR seem pretty unlikely though.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 09:43:50
Yeah but they would be killer and I meant to say Paul as in cp3.

3.) 02 Feb 2018 12:10:39
If we are talking NBA 2K, and houses, and family members, and friends, and weather aren't part of the equation.

4.) 03 Feb 2018 09:42:57
Gilbert won’t trade Lebron he needs him there to sell the Cavs.

5.) 03 Feb 2018 15:20:06
That might do more to chase James away. Gilbert being there.

Keep Smith and add in hood. On draft night it can happen.

That be good for the cavs if James wants out. Plus give the cavs Randle also. They would have ball, randle love hood and the Brook pick to build around plus Thompson is he can get it together. So love can get traded
Say George takes 30 and puts Lakers at 79 that's 22 left for DJ. Use mle on Evans
James/ evans
Noel/ zubak.
