If LAC fade


LAC get KCP exp, Warren & 2nd LAL
- shed Gallo's contract making more room for next year plans

Pg Beverley/Williams/Teodosic
Sg Bradley/KCP/Robinson
Sf Warren/Thornwell
Pf Harris/Scott
Ce Gortat/Harrell/Marjanovic

LAL get Ariza

Pg Ball/Rondo
Sg Ingram/Hart/Mykhailuk
Sf James/Ariza/Lance
Pf Kuzma/Beasley/Wagner
Ce Mcgee/Chandler/Zubac

PHX get SGA & Gallinari
- take Gallo's contract but get a young promising point

Sg Booker
Sf Jackson
Pf Gallinari
Ce Ayton

1.) 15 Dec 2018 02:00:12
If the Clippers didn't want to give up SGA for Butler, they aren't giving him up for Warren.



14 Dec 2018 23:40:36

CHI get Ryan Anderson & Josh Jackson

PHX get Jabari Parker, Cam Payne & 2nd round pick

1.) 15 Dec 2018 17:33:42
Jackson still has potential.



14 Dec 2018 04:07:35

CHI get Andre Roberson, Patrick Patterson & 2nd round pick

OKC get Jabari Parker

1.) 14 Dec 2018 04:18:43
OKC should do this to get out of the Roberson deal. They really need to get under the cap next season.



12 Dec 2018 14:34:57

UTA get Davis & Hill

NOLA get Gobert, Ingles, 1st round pick & 2nd round pick

Only if everyone commits, is the value anywhere close?

1.) 12 Dec 2018 15:02:39
Lottery picks need to be included and probably more than one. This deal is not even close.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 15:31:05
I don't think either team does this. I think Gobert is one of the best centers in the NBA. He seems happy in Utah. I wouldn't trade him for someone that wouldn't have the inherent happiness and would likely leave.

3.) 12 Dec 2018 17:35:30
Bmiller true word.



09 Dec 2018 21:32:08

LAL get Beal

WAS get Ingram, Caldwell-Pope, 1st & 2nd rd pick

LAL struggles in scoring when Lebron and Kuz is not on the floor. They add another creator to strengthen their playoff chance. Beal is a young all star. It probably doesn't entice the Wiz but as a Lakers fan, i would add another protected first if possible. I just don't like including Hart in there even if he might be required :)

Without making any big moves, what is Lakers ceiling this season and next?

1.) 14 Dec 2018 05:06:48
If the Lakers landed Beal or Durant before the deadline, they would be dangerous. They are already pretty scrappy but not title contenders. Semi's maybe? Next season, a lot of people believe the Lakers will get a big name free agent of some kind, if that happens they are title contenders for sure. Whatever Leonard, Durant, and Davis do in the off-season will be huge impacts on the league. GSW with cousins is going to torch everyone at will, even the Raps I think. Without a big free agent they can still be a playoff team but not a title contender. Not out west.

2.) 14 Dec 2018 05:29:08
No moves is second round next both years. Need defenders or better turnover ratio. 50 wins is a great year with this roster. Add Ariza and get rid of minutes for Lance they will improve.

3.) 15 Dec 2018 01:07:57
With a whole year with the young 4 and James they should be contenders next year if they pan out. This year just pretenders. But with close to 40 mil in cap Lakers should be able to add a quality player regardless. A dominant center would be great.



08 Dec 2018 02:08:58
What do you think is the ceiling of Fox-Hield backcourt?

1.) 08 Dec 2018 16:22:15
They need a big guy that plays defense.

2.) 08 Dec 2018 18:03:30
Shiller, and a SF that fits their timeline. Trade one of Hield or Bogdanovich. Either could start on another team. One of them shouldn't be riding the pine behind the other at this stage of the SAC rebuild. Why not get a good pick and a player.

3.) 08 Dec 2018 20:36:01
Btec- don't disagree but not sure you get a good young and pick for either.

4.) 08 Dec 2018 22:48:17
If Korver possibly nets a pick, Bogdanovich is worth a player and pick.

5.) 09 Dec 2018 19:28:12
They need a PF, C that protects the rim and get rebounds. WCS is soft and Kosta shouldn’t even be in the league, horrible basketball player! I think fox, Hield, Bogdan should all start.



05 Dec 2018 03:30:33
What is happening to Blazers

1.) 05 Dec 2018 03:38:47
They had a friendly schedule to start the season, now its a lot tougher. Other teams started slow, especially on defense. They were only 1 game or 2 from 8th in the west last season. A bad schedule in the west this season could mean the difference between a playoff bid or not.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 13:54:03
How did they have an easy schedule early? It was tough, they were simply playing better (especially the bench) .

I wouldn’t overreact over a good or poor 5-8 game stretch. It’s a long season.

3.) 05 Dec 2018 15:41:33
Yep, they just all of the sudden started playing bad when the rest if the league started playing defense!

4.) 05 Dec 2018 15:57:04
10 of 14 games were home games to start the season too.

5.) 05 Dec 2018 22:34:23
And 8 of their last 11 were on the road. Favorable home to start, unfavorable lately. Again, not overreacting over 8 games on either end. I didn't think they were the best team in the west 8 games ago, I don't think they're a bottom 4 team in the west now. They're a good team that has it's ups and downs.

It's the exact same as OKC or Utah. Both have had good runs and bad early. All 3 are good teams. None are likely a real threat to GS.

6.) 06 Dec 2018 01:30:17
PHX is a welcome opponent tomorrow. No Booker, no defense. Easy pickings for Portland.

7.) 06 Dec 2018 21:27:55
Their problem is, their Forwards are straight trash! Have been for years now. Teams just figured them out. You stop dame and cj and they got nothing.

8.) 07 Dec 2018 02:01:33
Lebronto, I agree that Portland could trade all their big men except Collins. They had to let Vonleh go for cap last season. Bummer!

9.) 07 Dec 2018 14:56:25
Eh, Vonleh is a 5th big, he’s not really missed.

They need a third scoring option. That clearly isn’t nurkic. He’s a great role player, but not good enough offensively. Aminu is a great role player too, but can’t creat offense. Turner can create, but he’s a big PG, not a slashing wing.

I thought at the start of the season that portland’s position in the west would match what place Collins was on the rankings of Blazers. If he was able to be their third best player, they could get the third seed. He’s 6th-7th and they’re looking like a 6-7 seed.

10.) 07 Dec 2018 16:27:43
I didn't say Vonleh was the savior for blazers. Do you always interpret everything I post in the most negative way possible? Sure seems like it. Nitpicky!

11.) 09 Dec 2018 19:34:24
Yeah, I don’t understand why they don’t let Collins start and play more mins. At least for a few games see how it goes.



04 Dec 2018 02:34:04
Who existing players can you compare these rising stars?

1 Jokic
2 Mitchell
3 Booker
4 Tatum
5 Simmons

1.) 04 Dec 2018 07:15:24
Jokic- Marc Gasol
Mitchell- James Harden (need to improve passing though)
Booker- Klay Thompson
Tatum- Paul George
Simmons- Hate to say it but young LeBron.

2.) 04 Dec 2018 15:19:08
Jokic-plays like Divac and Arvydas Sabonis with his own flair.

Mitchell- plays like Isaiah Thomas ( the legend ), and or Joe Dumars-the equally formidable side-kick. Plays bigger than his 6'2" body, energy on defense, like to pair him with oladipo see if Mitchell is the natural PG of the 2 or not. I think he is.

Booker is like a big Lou Williams. Terrible on Defense but can score, score, score

Tatum hopefully is a Scottie Pippen type guy. Defends well, handles the ball well, has a little turnaround, an up and under/ jump hook in the post, Shoots the 3 (consistently), scrn/ pick n roll.

3.) 04 Dec 2018 15:22:29
Simmons outside game is horrific, Maybe a young Magic Johnson is about right, effective in the paint on offense primarily, tall, plays PG, good defender, good passer.

4.) 04 Dec 2018 16:22:01
Jokic - Marc Gasol (offensiven wise)
Mitchell - D-Wade
Booker - Ray Allen
Tatum - Young Melo
Simmons - Lamar Odom.

5.) 05 Dec 2018 01:31:53
Tatum young kobe. He plays better defense than melo ever did and shoots better than PG does in his prime.

6.) 06 Dec 2018 21:33:24
Odom was a shooter and passer, geez. Simmons can’t shoot lol.



03 Dec 2018 10:45:46
What are the top 3 surprises and disappointment so far?

Surprising teams
1 Clippers of course, who thought they will be on top after 20+ games, although i think they will finish 7th or 8th at best

2 Detroit, Griffin is carrying this team and yeah, if they could flip some of their guys and some assets for a star, they could make some noise

3 Kings, wow they are .500 after 22 games?

honorable mention: Memphis


1 Celtics- okay, i understand the adjustments but this is not the start that everyone is expecting from them. They're supposed to be the beast of the east right?

2 Jazz- I always thought this team is overrated (although i really like Mitchell), but many are saying they are a lock in at Western top 8

3 Rockets- Since the Melo acquisition, there is a disaster about to happen and the Warriors biggest threat is dwelling at the bottom. I still believe they are in the top 5 though

honorable Mention: Spurs

Note: I don't see any panic on the Warriors team :)

1.) 03 Dec 2018 11:52:50
1. Grizzlies
2. Clippers
3. Bucks

1. Rockets FM
2. Celtics
3. Lakers.

2.) 03 Dec 2018 13:48:21
Magic/ Mavs- surprisingly good

Bulls/ Wiz- surprisingly terrible.

3.) 03 Dec 2018 13:56:19
OH the Lakers are a disappointment? No surprise there Shill :)

4.) 03 Dec 2018 15:22:17
Bulls canned Hoiberg on cue.

5.) 03 Dec 2018 20:26:13
Btec- bulls had no vets or defenders. I expected them to be bad. Parker and Levine give false hope, not true production.

6.) 03 Dec 2018 21:48:21
I put them down because they have had a lot of injuries, and no one plans for injuries. What is more disappointing than 4 of your teams players missing over a month to start the season?

Suns thought it was Dillon that’s why the deal fell down.

I don't like it for LA. Conley is overpaid and will not do better for Lakers.

I'll put Vucevic higher, maybe around number 9

Jimmy Butler all over Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis all over Curry as long as Pelicans could make playoffs (doubt)
