MIA get Lowry

TOR get Jackson (waive), Olynyk (exp), 1st from DET & MIA

DET get Dragic

1.) 18 Jul 2019 08:04:05
I don't like this for Miami
Lowry is a great player, but he's 34 and OKC already owns the 2021 and 2023 pick from Miami.

I can only see Detroit and Miami do this if those picks are top 20 protected, but i think toronto loses interests when that happens.

2.) 19 Jul 2019 21:26:20
Detroit is not going to give ups first round pick for a 33 year old often injured guard and they don't have to do it to get rid of an expiring Jackson contract. They might as well stay pat and let him walk at the end of the year. Nice try.



18 Jul 2019 06:21:26

OKC get Crowder
- cut a little bit of tax while getting a player who could be another trade asset at the deadline

MEM get Roberson & one of the many 1st round picks
- whichever pick they deserve should be added

1.) 18 Jul 2019 09:00:37
i can't see them trading a first, maybe a second.

2.) 18 Jul 2019 14:57:21
Swap the 1st for the 2020 Chicago 2nd, and OKC says yes. Duck the luxury, plus I like Crowder more than Dre at this point. Nice fit in okc.

3.) 18 Jul 2019 16:10:55
Of course OKC says yes. That Chicago 2020 only conveys if Chicago is a top 5 team this year. Its valueless. You might as well just say Roberson Crowder straight up which would save OKC nearly $10 mil in salary + luxury tax. But would be dumb for Memphis to accept considering they have all the leverage. That Denver 2020 pick seems about right.

OKC may be the worse team in the West AND still pay $11 mil in luxury taxes. Nice management there!

4.) 18 Jul 2019 20:40:34
Well, they expected to be competitive until a few days ago, so being in luxury tax for a year as they tank isn't a horrible thing. I wouldn't give up a first just to duck the luxury tax, especially since they have all year to get under it. Maybe as a trade deadline move, but definitely not before the season starts.

They're only 3.8 million over the tax, they could swap Gallo for a smaller expiring deal to get under. Something like Gallo and Ferguson for Bazemore and Trent (a 4.2 million cut in that deal) .

5.) 19 Jul 2019 01:07:07
Spotrac says $4.7 over cap. Think you may be missing some dead money on OKC books.

6.) 19 Jul 2019 04:46:09
Yeah, I was looking at the trade machine, you’re right. Could probably make it work still. They both have some small contracts that could be swapped in and out.



17 Jul 2019 20:46:56

BOS get Dieng & Teague (exp)

MIN get Paul

OKC get Hayward & 2nd rd pick MIN

1.) 18 Jul 2019 00:43:49
Celtics rarely take old expensive guys.



16 Jul 2019 07:09:39

DET get Hayward & MEM 1st from BOS

Pg Rose
Sg Kennard
Sf Hayward
Pf Griffin
Ce Maker

BOS get Towns

Pg Walker
Sg Smart
Sf Brown
Pf Kanter
Ce Towns

MIN get Drummond, Tatum & 1st round pick BOS

Pg Teague
Sg Wiggins
Sf Covington
Pf Tatum
Ce Drummond

1.) 16 Jul 2019 13:07:53
Switch Brown for Tatum and Boston might bite on that. But Towns isn't going anywhere until he starts acting up.



16 Jul 2019 03:21:15

WAS get Chris Paul & Steven Adams
- feels like they don't want to rebuild and want to compete. These 2 will help them do that for a while

Pg Paul/Thomas
Sg Beal/Smith/Bonga
Sf Miles/Dekker/Jones
Pf Hachimura/Bertans
Ce Adams/Bryant/Wagner

OKC get John Wall, Ian Mahinmi (exp), Troy Brown, 2 1st round picks & 2 2nd round picks maybe add 2 pick swaps or 1 more 1st in the future
- Wall's contract is horrendous but if they are to take additional future assets, it will be a go and it will be a bonus if Wall comes back even 70-80% of himself

Well then Westbrook was worth Paul and picks. I wonder what is OKC's plan with Paul. But the 2024 and 2026 pick might be good if Rockets fall into a rebuild after 3 years.



06 Jul 2019 10:18:32
Clippers have Kawhi, George & Beverley in the starting line up. You can put up any center / sg or center / pf with them and they are still a defensive beast. Then, from the bench Shamet, Williams & Harrell will come in and they are offensively very good. They still have Harkless. Clippers if they find chemistry quickly will be a serious chip winners next year. And does anyone in the History of the NBA has won back to back championship in 2 different teams? Kawhi has a great chance at that.



06 Jul 2019 02:44:38
Does BOS still have some space or anything? How about signing Avery Bradley back?

1.) 06 Jul 2019 05:28:14
Boston is $7 mil over the salary cap and used their only exception to sign Kanter.



05 Jul 2019 02:20:39
In 2017-18 playoffs i posted what will be a good finals match up although a long shot. I put in UTA vs PHI that time because of Simmons and Mitchell rivalry for ROY. Is this year a possibility for this?

1.) 05 Jul 2019 12:20:33
Probably more likely this year than any of the next 5 just cause of injuries.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 17:37:12
Both teams look really good. I think Utah is right there with anyone to vie for the west. Same with Phili in the east. Certainly not a long shot to see those two in the Finals.



03 Jul 2019 01:15:24
How about the Warriors adding some pieces, their line up so far

Pg Curry/Livingston
Sg Russell/Poole/(Thompson)
Sf McKinnie/GR3
Pf Green/Paschall/Smailagic
Ce Cauley-Stein/Looney/Jones

1.) 03 Jul 2019 03:07:27
Bobby Marks on ESPN predicted that Warriors do not make the playoffs.

2.) 03 Jul 2019 22:22:24
Gsw defense is looking bad.

Must include at least Harris to PHX.

So the Wolves will end up with Towns, Adams, Noel, Bell, Dieng and Vonleh and very thin on wings. And money is not close to working.

Money is a big problem.

Hornets better hold on to younger Rozier because even with Paul, they are goingnowhere.

I don't how money could work but Russell for Fournier and gordon will make sense for both.

ATL can actually beat that team in some games

I'll put Vucevic higher, maybe around number 9

I'd say Markieff to at least top 15

Curry, Paul, Westbrook, Wall, Lillard, Irving, Lowry, Rose, Conley, Lawson, Bledsoe, Kemba, Teague, Parker, Rondo, Holiday, Rubio, Jennings, Knight, Williams, Mcw, Collison, Hill, Beverley, Burke, Lin, Calderon, Chalmers, Smart, Payton

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