Philadelphia drafts Jackson at 3. Then, to get a PG, trade Covington and worst of 76ers/ Lakers 2018 1st to Minnesota for the 7th pick and draft best PG available.

I think it is a win win for both teams. The 2018 draft is not supposed to be as strong as this year, so Philly gets 2 top 10 prospects from a supposedly loaded draft. Minnesota gets a player to help now, while also getting a future asset.

I think philly should make a play for d. russell.
Maybe okafor and mcconnell and a few 2nd rounders for russell and mozgov.

I see the lakers taking ball in the draft. This trade allows them to avoid a backcourt logjam, while also getting mozgovs contract off their books which philly can easily absorb and getting some insurance for embiid at the same time. I think russell would thrive alongside simmons and embiid.

Although Minnesota is a prime candidate to trade since with Rubio and Dunn they don't really need another pg I don't think this offer would do it due to the risk of young, untested teams over performing. The Lakers could easily make a move for George and other win now moves that could vault them out of the lottery making their pick considerably less valuable. I also think Minnesota will get a lot more offers.

Maybe Minnesota would take an offer like this for Dunn who looked disappointing and is already 23. I think he could still become a solid pro but I'd much rather roll the dice with Fox or Smith.

If I'm the 76ers I wouldn't be focused on getting a traditional point guard but a combo guard who could play off ball in order to let Simmons thrive in a point forward role. If Philly goes Jackson at #3 (as they should) its imperative they get a guard who could shoot. If they did get #7 I'd think Monk (if available) would be the perfect fit.

Hypothetical trade if Minnesota moves up to 2 and Lakers stay at 3.

LA gets no 2 pick
Chicago gets no 3 pick and D'Angelo Russell
Minnesota gets Jimmy Butler.


1.) 16 May 2017 14:36:07
Minnesota would have to give up more and Russel is a pretty steep price just to move up one spot.

2.) 16 May 2017 16:16:04
Minny shouldn't rush, draft Ball with the second pick and trade Dunn for a future 1rnd pick.

3.) 16 May 2017 20:28:59
If they get a top 3, Ball would be a pretty good fit, but I'd keep Dunn and move Rubio. Dunn could still wind up being a solid defensive guard like Bradley or Smart in Boston. He might not ever get the offensive versatility Bradley has, but Smart has shown you don't need it to make a big contribution. If that was where they wound up, Rubio to the Knicks in a Melo package could work.

Ball/ Jones
LaVine/ Dunn
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Melo/ Dieng/ Hill
Towns/ Aldrich

I'd try to make some other moves involving Hill/ Aldrich and Muhammad for better depth at the 3, but this starting 5 with that guard rotation is a fun one.

4.) 16 May 2017 21:08:28
Why would Minnesota want any part of Melo?



15 May 2017 18:57:12
A Chicago and Minnesota trade that I think makes sense.

Chicago gets Andrew Wiggins and no 5 pick (draft Fox or Smith)

Minnesota gets Jimmy Butler and no 16 pick (draft TJ Leaf).

Chicago gets a budding superstar and a top 6 pick to build for the future.

Minnesota gets a superstar to help them now, while reuniting him with his old coach and a young player who can develop into a stretch 4 that MN needs.

What do you think?


1.) 15 May 2017 21:21:43
Minny are 6th.

2.) 20 May 2017 00:00:56
Minny is 7th.



14 Feb 2017 22:42:17
New York Knicks off season plan.

Trade Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah to Chicago for Jimmy Butler and Robin Lopez.

In the draft, draft the BPA.

Sign Jeff Teague and Michael Carter-Williams in free agency.

If Melo plays more PF, a line up of Teague, Lee, Butler, Melo, and Lopez could compete for a top 3-4 seed in the East.


1.) 14 Feb 2017 23:07:39
They would trade Melo before KP. They will end up building the team with him other then melo. Plus after next year he can opt out witch I think he will.

2.) 15 Feb 2017 00:09:36
Not a chance NY trades the unicorn. Ridiculous.

Two Brook Lopez trade ideas.

1. To Chicago for Robin Lopez, and 2 out of the following 3: Denzel Valentine, 2018 1st round pick, or 2020 1st round pick

2. To Boston for Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko, 2017 2nd via Minnesota, 2019 1st via Memphis, and 2019 1st via Clippers and Memphis.


1.) 22 Jan 2017 17:21:21
How about to Charlotte:
Lopez and RHJ for Zeller, MKG, and 2017 1st (top 3 protected)

2.) 22 Jan 2017 17:37:39
Lopez is not the rebounder that Boston is seeking, plus I doubt the Nets would deal with Boston unless they get their #1 back. And that's going to happen.

3.) 22 Jan 2017 18:19:00
billj. Yeah, I don't know what happened to Lopez's rebounding. Was about 7.5 going into the year (at 5.2 right now) . But he is shooting the 3 a lot more (70 for 202). Rebounding might not be that big of an issue for Boston with Horford and Bradley (both averaging 6.9). Also remember, rebounding numbers take a hit if minutes are down.

As for Boston and Brooklyn dealing with each other again, I think they would if both teams can benefit from the deal. But there is no way, if I was Boston, I would give Brooklyn one of their picks back.

4.) 22 Jan 2017 19:47:10
Carl. rebounding is a huge issue in boston

If Minnesota wanted to trade Wiggins, how high of a pick to you think they could get in this years draft?


1.) 17 May 2017 14:46:44
1st overall plus more.

2.) 17 May 2017 17:23:54
Um. no rkenne. just no.

Wiggins is starting to look like far less than what people made him out to be. The problem is, while he is a pretty solid scorer, at this point, that appears to be it. He is actually a negative on the defensive end. He doesn't rebound particularly well and he isn't much of a passer.

And he is already completed his third year. I don't know how much more complete of a player he will become. If he was in this draft and you knew this is where he would be after year 3, I see him going 3-7.

Absolutely not worth the 1st overall and more. Just stop.

3.) 17 May 2017 22:56:47
Wiggins hasn't been and doesn't project to be the heir to Lebron like some projected him to be coming out of Kansas and has been considerably worse on the defensive end than many thought but dude is still only 22 and one of the top prospects in the league. He has been extremely healthy (playing in all but one game in his first 3 years) and has scored over 20 ppg his past two seasons. He also made a big jump this past season improving his 3pt % from 30% to a respectable 35.6%. Issue is he doesn't do much else besides scoring with only 4 double doubles in his entire career.

I see no reason why Twolves would want to trade Wiggins for a pick in this years draft but for point of reference Jackson has been heavily compared to him and many regard him as 2nd or 3rd best prospect in the draft. You have to factor in the unknown factor (Jackson could be better than expected or much worse than expected) and the contract situation as well as the adjustment period and age in the value. If Wiggins was in this draft I think he'd be minimally #4 pick and maybe as high as #2 behind Fultz due to the increasing importance of point guards and shooters in today's game.

However, for it to make sense for Twolves to trade him they'd want #1 plus more since Twolves already have a promising team and with KAT they don't need Wiggins to be the next Lebron for them to be successful. There is always the risk that whomever they trade him for is not as good (Wiggins has been pretty darn good thus far) or worst a complete bust so they'd have to be compensated for that.

I'm not sure Celtics would be willing to do that (although maybe they would since Wiggins could help them to win right now and still keep the future bright while Fultz it remains to be seen if he can have an immediate impact) .

Timberwolves off season.

Pek takes a medical retirement so his salary doesn't count for next year.
Waive Jordan Hill and his non guaranteed contract for next year.
Let Rush, Muhammad, Payne, and Casspi leave via free agency.

Trade Andrew Wiggins, Cole Aldrich, and no 6 (or 7) pick to Chicago for Jimmy Butler and 15 (or 16) pick.

Sign Serge Ibaka to a max deal and Andre Roberson to a deal.

Rubio/ Jones
LaVine/ Dunn
Butler/ Roberson
Ibaka/ Bjelica
Towns/ Deing.


1.) 13 Apr 2017 16:46:12
The rest of the core fits wiggins time line. His ceiling is probably higher than Butler's. I'm not sure if they trade Wiggins for Butler straight up let alone adding the pick.

2.) 14 Apr 2017 01:14:13
Trading Wiggins for Butler could make some sense but I wouldn't give up Twolves pick too (I don't think Bulls pick justifies it since big drop-off in talent after 11 imo) . I'd swap LaVine in for Wiggins and potentially do this trade. I believe Bulls wanted LaVine and pick that end up as Dunn for Butler last summer so maybe it could work. Losing LaVine's shooting will hurt a lot tho especially with Rubio and Dunn both poor 3pt shooters although Wiggins improved to a respectable 36% this season. I could see Thibs however pushing hard to get his man Butler back.

If I'm Twolves I'd probably just stick with what they have especially when Issac or worst case Markkanen will be available with their lotto pick. Issac would be a scary pf on the team with his versatility and ability to stretch the floor and play defense.



18 Jan 2017 03:04:06
I don't want Minnesota to trade Rubio, but Thibs seems hell bent on doing so. Sacramento seems the likely destination.

So, Sacramento gets Ricky Rubio and Shabazz Muhammad.

Minnesota gets Darren Collison, Anthony Tolliver, Malachi Richardson, and a future 1st round pick.


1.) 18 Jan 2017 12:13:20
I think Sacramento would only offer R Gay and Collison.

2.) 18 Jan 2017 16:03:17
They could offer McLemore too

3.) 18 Jan 2017 16:04:53
I'd like to see this
Twolves get Afflalo, Collison, and McLemore
Kings get Rubio and Muhammad



10 May 2016 21:48:50
How about we stop trying to trade 2016 draft picks until we actually know the draft order for lottery picks.




31 Mar 2016 23:07:31
For all the Bills fans posting trading Butler to Philadelphia for the no 1 pick, why would Philly do this. They have spent the last 3 years tanking. If they finally get the first pick, why would they pass on a chance to get a talent like Simmons or Ingram? And Butler is going to be 27 before next season starts. And you want them to add in more assets? Philly would be crazy to do this.


1.) 02 Apr 2016 18:14:27
Nice post. I like your reasoning.

Simmons at PG would be terrible on defense. Simmons would be better off splitting time between the forward spots with Saric and Covington (and Jackson if Philly drafts him) .

You still have Deng and Mozgov's contracts to deal with.

Bad for Minnesota. Give up way too much value for junk to move up to draft who? Ball? Pass. Jackson? Wolves have Wiggins. Monk? Wolves have LaVine, so no need to trade up.

NLD, except for the part where you want Philadelphia to either give up another asset or take on Mozgov's terrible contract.

If I am Sacramento, I pass. I don't think Jackson is good enough to offset them not getting a PG in the draft and another good prospect.
