NOLA get Ben Simmons , SAC pick & 3rd pick

PHI get Anthony Davis

1.) 23 May 2017 12:46:50
Besides the fact that Adavis isn't getting traded. I don't think that he fits with embiid.

2.) 23 May 2017 15:00:46
You do NOT get AD for that.

3.) 23 May 2017 16:05:12
If Simmons wasn't coming off of a terrible injury, I'd say it's close. But until Simmons plays, I don't think he has a lot of trade value.



23 May 2017 01:50:09
I have a crazy deal


NY get 1st overall pick , Jae Crowder & Quincy Pondexter

BOS get Anthony Davis & Carmelo Anthony

Pg Brogdon

SAS get Greg Monroe & Al Farouq Aminu

Sf Leonard
Pf Aminu

1.) 22 May 2017 15:55:22
Portland and San Antonio pass. I wouldn't touch Parker, to me he has very little trade value. Definitely not the headliner in a deal for a star.

Also, Aldridge and lillard really didn't like each other in Portland. There was bad blood (mostly from Aldridge) . Seems like a bad idea to try to reunite them.



19 May 2017 04:47:30

POR acquire Eric Bledsoe , Tyler Ulis , 4th pick & Dragan Bender

draft Jayson Tatum

Pg Bledsoe/Ulis
Sg McCollum/Crabbe
Sf Tatum/Harkless
Pf Vonleh/Aminu
Ce Nurkic/Bender

PHX acquire Damian Lillard & Evan Turner

Pg Lillard/Knight
Sg Booker/Turner
Sf Warren/Dudley
Pf Chriss/
Ce Chandler/Len

Lillard is going to be 27 by the start of next season. While he is a very good player and likely worth this type of return I don't like Phx trading for him since the rest of their roster is ready to capitalize on that type of talent. I'd prefer to see Phx shop Bledsoe to a team like the Bulls, Pistons, Pacers, Nuggets, Mavs or Pelicans (teams looking to take the next step and could use a reasonably priced starting caliber pg in his prime) for a draft pick and then take Fox or Tatum with the #4 pick and just develop that young core.

Portland needs to make some moves to free up cap space which this does and its a solid return with a starting caliber pg coming back in return but I don't think they need to make this particular move (its hard to replace a player of Lillards caliber) . Portland has 3 1sts in the upcoming draft to try and unload some of those bad contracts and make some additions. I'd love to see them package McCollum and other assets to make a move for Butler. Butler and Lillard would make a devastating backcourt that compliments each other well. Bulls should rebuild and McCollum is a solid core piece to rebuild around (only 25, signed long term, great scorer that would be even better as #1 option, skills to play pg) . Portland would have to add some of its 1sts tho but Chicago has cap space to absorb some of contracts like Crabbe and Leonard (both could be role players on a rebuilding Bulls team and are relatively young) .

LAC acquire Jahlil Okafor , Jae Crowder & LAL 1st 2018 from PHI

PHI acquire 1st pick

BOS acquire Deandre Jordan & 3rd pick

1.) 18 May 2017 11:42:15
So Philly gives up Okafor and a draft pick to go up 2 spots to draft a point guard. not to mention, Simmons is projected to be the PG. 🤔.

2.) 18 May 2017 13:11:50
In some drafts, the price to go from 3 to 1 would be that high, but it's not this draft. I think 1-3 are the same value.

3.) 18 May 2017 15:08:50
Crowder and pick 1 doesn't get Jordan and pick 3.

4.) 18 May 2017 16:20:25
I'd argue that having the ability of adding Fultz would be huge for Philly. If the guard they had the ability to get was Ball or Fox, you're both probably right. But Fultz is better than them, and fits exactly what Philly needs. In that case, you'd be able to play him with Embiid, Saric or Crowder, Simmons and a shooter of your choice at any of the 1-4. There's a ton of positional flexibility, and most of them can handle the ball.

I don't think they're all that high on Okafor, so the cost is relatively prohibitive. If they were moving to #2, it's mostly useless, since the guys available at three would be an even swap, but Fultz would be a perfect get for them.

This would all depend on if the Clippers get blown up this year. and they might need a little bit more back too. I'd consider throwing Bradley or Rozier their way as well.

I don't know if I would do this as Boston, but that's just because I've fallen in love with the idea of Fultz there, and no longer want any of the rest of the top four. but it would be a huge get to bring in Jordan.

5.) 18 May 2017 17:44:41
I agree there is a big jump from 3 to 1 talent wise with Fultz and he'd be a great compliment with his size, shooting ability and being able to play off-ball at times to Simmons and still be effective. The price for 76ers is on the high end but I think that is what it'll take to convince Celtics to move the 1st but even that likely isn't enough. There are plenty of other ways the Celtics could add Jordan while giving a more attractive to LA than this and keep their #1 pick. I don't see Celtics moving Fultz unless its for a star and although value wise 76ers are giving a solid return its still no star.

6.) 18 May 2017 20:32:44
Picks 1-3 do not have the same value especially when it comes to payroll. Even talent wise they differ, each brings something different to the table.

But I definitely think that Ainge will dupe the Lakers and Magic into thinking he will pick Ball to see if they'll blink and make a phone call to DA to see what's up. If they can get a realistic trade asset (not Moz or Deng) from the Lakers and use that and the #2 pick to Detroit or Miami or another team to get a big that will step in and be an impact player then he'll do that.

If Bulls trade Butler then maybe a package of Jimmy and Lopez would definitely make the C's better.

They would have to give more to get Butler and I doubt Chicago would be willing to take on Dengs contract.

I'd love to see Denver consolidate their assets but I don't think any of those trades happen except for the Faried trade which I'm not sure what Denver would be gaining (Muhammad is a rfa and will likely get a decent sized contract so I don't think there is even that much money saved) .

1.) 08 Mar 2017 02:48:02
Without many young players and lacking the win-now talent I'm not sure how eager Hawks would be to move Schroeder for IT especially when Millsap could potentially walk in FA.

Boston are clear winners of this deal and I think Ibaka would be a solid signing for them although Raptors can offer him more money and a similar role on a similarly competitive team so not sure if he'd choose Boston over Toronto (he is an international player) .

I'm fearful for Indy since it doesn't seem like they have a great chance to keep George unless they make a big move and they don't really have the assets to make one. This isn't a bad return but not the greatest either although Pacers have sort of put themselves in this situation by waiting until George's final year of his contract and not trading him at deadline. People fail to realize BKN pick only has a 25% chance at Fultz so its more likely than not it doesn't get him and still under 50% chance they land in top 2. It can't fall past 4 so Indy is likely guaranteed to get atleast Dennis Smith as a pg to pair with Turner but I think there is a considerable drop off from Fultz and Ball to Smith.

I don't like it for Lakers. I love Vuc but he and Randle would be terrible defensively. They can package Russell to a bigger deal.
