CHI get Joakim Noah & 1st round pick NYK (top 7 protected)

NY get Bobby Portis, Greg Monroe (exp) & MIL 2nd round pick

MIL get Robin Lopez

1.) 18 Oct 2017 11:39:58
It would take more than a first to get rid of Noah's contract and why give up Lopez and Portis to take that on?



16 Oct 2017 04:11:37

PHX get Malcolm Brogdon & John Henson

MIL get Eric Bledsoe & Marquese Chriss

1.) 16 Oct 2017 05:59:56

2.) 16 Oct 2017 09:06:47
It's an overpay for The Suns, They would want at least a draft pick.

Chriss>>>> Henson
Beldsoe >>> Brogdon

Bledsoe is a borderline all star, he's older than Brogdon, but he's only 28 years old and on a reasonable contract. So the Suns would only do this if they're sure he can't stay healty.

3.) 16 Oct 2017 14:16:40
Take Chriss out and maybe Phoenix thinks about it, but unless they're high on Brogdon, I think they would want a pick as well.

4.) 16 Oct 2017 17:23:03
is this predicated by phil jackson becoming the suns gm?



16 Oct 2017 01:17:07

DEN get CJ McCollum & 2nd rd pick from POR & CHI

Pg McCollum/Nelson/Mudiay
Sg Harris/Beasley
Sf Chandler/Hernangomez
Pf Millsap/Arthur/Lyles
Ce Jokic/Plumlee

POR get Jamaal Murray, Wil Barton, Kenneth Faried, 1st round pick DEN (2018)

Pg Lillard/Napier
Sg Murray/Barton
Sf Harkless/Aminu
Pf Vonleh/Faried
Ce Nurkic/Collins

CHI get Evan Turner, Pat Connaughton & 1st round pick DEN (2020)

Pg Dunn/Payne
Sg LaVine/Holiday
Sf Zipser/Turner/Valentine
Pf Markannen/Mirotic
Ce Lopez/Portis/Felicio

1.) 16 Oct 2017 09:14:09
I like this trade

Denver becomes a playoff team

Portland should trade McCollum and they receive great roll players in this trade. Not sure they should involve Chicago in this trade, that 2020 Denver pick could be good.

Chicago can take bad contracts for draft picks.

2.) 16 Oct 2017 14:20:48
Not a huge fan of it for Denver. They give up a lot and unless they see McCollum as a 1, why do this when Harris is already a really good young sg.

I think Portland would have to think about it, but McCollum is an allstar level sg and is signed long term. I'm not sure it's worth it for them.

3.) 16 Oct 2017 17:28:04
this isn't the best trade for por but i do think mccollum will end up on the trade block over the next year or two. portlands future looks rather stagnant (unless this team can somehow make the playoffs above a 7 seed) they need to shake it up and moving mccollum could be the way to do it if they can get the right pieces. mccollum is a top notch scorer but him and dame don't really compliment each other greatly.

MIN get Kevin Love

CLE get Marc Gasol & Jamychal Green (st)

MEM get Gorgui Dieng, Channing Frye , Iman Shumpert , MIN 1st rd pick & CLE own 1st rd pick

1.) 03 Oct 2017 05:35:41
Not a fan of it for the Cavs or Memphis.

I don't think Gasol is better than Love and even if he is it's by a fairly marginal amount. I think he would be obtainable without giving Love up, which is the only way the Cavs actually improve in a deal for Gasol.

Trading Green and getting back Dieng seems like a lateral move for Memphis. They have similar skill sets, age and their contracts will probably be comparable. That makes it basically 2 late firsts and what they would hope to be expiring contracts for Gasol. That seems light.

Minnesota would need to give up more than a late first and middle of the road 27 year old starter, if they want to add an allstar that the Cavs have no real motivation to move at this point. When George or Butler were still out their, moving Love for assets to get them made sense, but not now.



03 Oct 2017 02:33:12

DEN get Eric Bledsoe

IND get Tyson Chandler, BKN 1st, DEN 1st round pick & CLE own 1st round pick

CLE get Myles Turner & Thad Young

PHX get Gary Harris, Tristan Thompson & Iman Shumpert

1.) 03 Oct 2017 09:55:00
clev can't trade both their 1st rd’s. and even if they could, i don’t think it should be to get myles turner.

2.) 04 Oct 2017 00:19:52
Indy should do this.

What a devastating opener for Celtics? smh



17 Oct 2017 08:23:36
If you could combine 2 borderline playoff teams and make them a championship contender, who would be the best?



Pg Lillard/Rondo
Sg McCollum/Holiday
Sf Harkless/Allen
Pf Davis/Aminu
Ce Cousins/Nurkic


Pg Conley/Smith Jr
Sg Matthews/Curry
Sf Barnes/Parsons
Pf Nowitzki/Green
Ce Gasol/Noel


Pg Lillard/Murray
Sg McCollum/Harris
Sf Chandler/Aminu
Pf Millsap/Faried
Ce Jokic/Nurkic


Pg Conley/Mudiay
Sg Harris/Murray
Sf Chandler/Parsons
Pf Millsap/Green
Ce Gasol/Jokic


I think East aside from BOS and CLE are almost all borderline playoff team


Pg Wall/Brogdon
Sg Beal/Middleton
Sf Giannis/Porter
Pf Parker/Morris
Ce Gortat/Monroe

1.) 17 Oct 2017 15:32:17
I'd say Washington, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Boston, and Toronto would make the playoffs in either conference.

Obviously if your only goal is to win a title this year Portland and NOs would give you the best chance, but they would be fairly bad defensively. I don't think they could be Cleveland or the top teams in the West.

If you're goal is to give you're team the best chance to win a championship at some point, I think you go Phoenix and Philly. They would have a ton of players that could eventually grow in to allstars and left over young talent to go out and add legitimate allstars now.

2.) 17 Oct 2017 18:08:17
I like the Port/ Denver combo
Who would start?
Nurkic or Jokic?

3.) 17 Oct 2017 20:29:20
Are you really thinking over who is a better player from Jokic and Nurkic? Jokic is better player in every single game segment and yes i mean every single. Jokic will be a top 10 player in year or two and Nurkic's biggest reach will be playing some folk music during warm ups.

4.) 18 Oct 2017 08:30:17
Jokic is better :-) :-) :-)
But that's the reason Denver traded Nurkic, he wouldn't be a benchplayer.



29 Sep 2017 12:21:21
Top Centers

1. Cousins
2. M.Gasol
3. Towns
4. Jordan
5. Gobert
6. Turner
7. Jokic
8. Drummond
9. Adams
10. P.Gasol
11. B.Lopez
12. Vucevic
13. Capela
14. Valanciunas
15. Embiid ( a lot to prove )

1.) 29 Sep 2017 13:07:47
I would put Townes one but there is no way he's worst than 2. Gobert should be 3. Valanciunas shouldn't be on the list and Embiid should be no worse than 8th.

2.) 29 Sep 2017 13:08:25
Also, you left off Whiteside.

3.) 30 Sep 2017 01:02:44
B. Lopez
P. Gasol



02 Sep 2017 04:38:58
Opinion only


1. Warriors
2. Rockets
3. Spurs
4. Thunder
5. Grizzlies
6. Twolves
7. Nuggets
8. Pelicans
9. Clippers
10. Blazers
11. Mavericks
12. Jazz
13. Kings
14. Lakers
15. Suns

1. Cavs
2. Celtics
3. Bucks
4. Wizards
5. Heat
6. Raptors
7. Sixers
8. Magic
9. Hornets
10. Pistons
11. Pacers
12. Knicks
13. Nets
14. Bulls
15. Hawks

Grizzlies is always underrated but if they stay healthy they are still a very good team

Love to see the young squads of Magic and Sixers make the playoffs now they have veterans on their rosters

Spurs still going to ball it out as always

1.) 02 Sep 2017 14:55:27
I don't see the Grizzlies being that high a seed. The teams old and lost a few pieces. They could still make the playoffs, but probably as the 7 or 8. I don't think NOs makes the playoffs over the Blazers and Clippers. I think the Jazz are a little better than that.

In the East, I think the Raptors end up a top 4 seed and the 7th and 8th are probably 2 of the 76ers, Pistons, and the Hornets. In my mind they're all clearly better than the Magic.

Pretty solid list though. Seems plausible.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 08:36:11
This is the best one I've seen so far
Only pickle don't see magic finishing that high.



20 Jul 2017 10:43:01

CHA get LaMarcus Aldridge
> go all in and compete in the East

Pg Walker/MCW/Weber
Sg Batum/Monk/Bacon
Sf Mkg/Lamb
Pf Aldridge/Kaminsky
Ce Howard/Obryant

SAS get Nikola Vucevic & Marvin Williams
> add more line up flexibility

Pg Parker/Mills/White
Sg Green/Ginobili/Murray
Sf Leonard/Anderson
Pf Gay/Williams/Bertans
Ce Vucevic/Gasol/Lauvergne

ORL get Cody Zeller , 1st round pick CHA 2018 (top 7 protected) & 2nd round pick from SAS
> get a young decent center and a pick

Pg Payton/Augustin/Mack
Sg Fournier/Hezonja
Sf Ross/Simmons
Pf Isaac/Gordon
Ce Biyombo/Zeller

1.) 20 Jul 2017 19:21:15
Solid return for Magic and Spurs but I don't think Hornets will be that great even with Aldridge so they probably better off not doing the trade especially since Aldridge could bolt after this season.

Denver also get warren in the process, he is young also and could be a building block especially if barton and chandler are gone.
