The Magic get Rozier, Yabusele, and the King's 19 1st

The Celtics get Bamba


1.) 17 Sep 2018 14:53:49
Magic will not trade Bamba.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 16:00:25
Bamba is not worth that much. Rozier is a SOLID player, and that pick is high lottery. Bamba is a project.

3.) 17 Sep 2018 16:55:50
Rozier is a solid player, but the Celtics aren’t keeping him and Kyrie. Bamba is raw, but the Celtics are obviously good at developing guys and being able to put them in great situations until it’s all there. My guess would be that the Celtics would have him playing all the Baynes minutes by the playoffs and that he would be a guy that could give them something they don’t have. If he was clicking by the playoffs, which we’ve seen multiple times from Celtics rookies, he gives the Celtics perimeter guys the ability to be much more aggressive on defense and that’s really the only way you can hope to slow down Golden State.

4.) 17 Sep 2018 17:22:10
With the questions around Irving resigning, I think Boston would be smart to hold onto Rozier.

That said, if they were to move him, Bamba would be a solid target, as they could use an athletic big with a high ceiling. And they have the current players (Horford and Baynes) that they wouldn't be relying on Bamba to produce big to be successful.

For Orlando, they get two nice assets for one. Considering how far away they are from competing, this makes sense to me.

Deadline deal

The Timberwolves get Gordon, Chriss, Qi, Houston's 1st and a 2nd

Houston gets a super charged version of Ariza on d and a guy that limit what Harden and Paul have to do on offense during the regular season plus give them that third elite offensive player in the playoffs. You could really scale back what Paul has to do during the 2nd half of the regular season and try to get him to the playoffs healthy and rested. If that happens and Butler meshes well with the team, the Warriors might be in trouble.

The Timberwolves get a real player in Gordon and some young talent, if they know Butler is gone.


1.) 13 Sep 2018 07:17:01
I like this idea, but I think the trade starting point would be Gordon, Chriss, 2 1st. But Houston would essentially have 120m tied up in 4 players if they resigned Butler.

I would love to see Curry v CP3, Klay v Harden, KD v Butler, Dray v Melo, Boogie v Capela over a 7 game series.

2.) 13 Sep 2018 20:20:50
Yeah, I was debating wether it should be 2 1sts or a 1st and a 2nd. I think it all depends on wether teams think he’s likely to resign or not. If there’s a clear favorite it might have ish his value down.



01 Sep 2018 16:10:08
The Cavs get Ferguson, Abrines and a 2nd

The Thunder get Korver


1.) 01 Sep 2018 21:39:40
Korver would help Thunder a lot but I don't think they will give up Ferguson for him. They like Ferguson and think he can develop into a good 2-way player. I don't think they would trade him for any 37 year old.



30 Aug 2018 13:07:54
The Nets get Whiteside, Cook, the Warriors 1st, and a Warriors 2nd

The Heat get Faried(expiring), Harris, and Jones

The Warriors get Winslow

The Nets get some additional picks and take a chance on Whiteside being good.

The Heat save money and get off of Whiteside's contract.

The Warriors get their heir to Igoudola.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 19:14:56
Not a bad idea, but I think the warriors 1st should not be involved because the nets’ return is pretty good for what it is. And I don’t think the warriors would put in two picks for a guy who’s a fa next summer.



15 Aug 2018 01:59:03
The Wizards get Hill, Korver, and Nance

The Cavs get Mahimi, Smith, Brown, a lottery protected 1st and a 2nd

I know Rozier can walk at the end of the year and the Celtics might not have the ability to sign him to a long term deal given the other contracts coming up, but do the Celtics have to keep him right now?

Losing him for nothing is a hit to a point, but with all of their draft assets, it's not something they can't easily overcome. What they can't over come is an injury to Irving during the season and not having a guy like Rozier to come in and give them a poorman's version of Irving. Smart is an interesting role player and more important to the team, if Irving is around, but there's no chance to beat the Warriors with him as your primary ball handler. To go even further down the line, if Irving walks and you traded Rozier, how do you replace him? It seems like Rozier is more valuable as an insurance policy than a trade asset. Especially for a team chalked full of trade assets.


1.) 03 Sep 2018 22:34:01
Rozier is a restricted free agent next July.

2.) 04 Sep 2018 02:40:37
Boston ain’t breaking up they can afford to sign Rozier Horfords big money will be stretched or resign longer with less money. Yabusele and Morris maybe the casualties.

3.) 04 Sep 2018 08:22:58
If the Celtics resign Irving and someone throws a big offer sheet at Rozier, I don’t see the Celtics looking at the numbers and deciding they can spend all of that money at pg with Tatum and Brown on the verge of new contracts. Even if it’s something like 15 million at some point your going to have 35 million for Irving and Gordon, 25 million for Brown and Tatum, 12 Million for smart, I’ll lowball Horford and say 12 million, and low ball the rest of the line up and say 25 million. That’d be a 175 million dollar pay roll minimum.

I just don’t see them signing Rozier, if Irving is in the fold. Especially when, they’d still have Smart as back up pg, Brown and Tatum will be able to handle more ball handling responsibilities, and they can get a cheap veteran back up pg for pennies on the dollar and Stevens has shown the ability to make anyone into a serviceable pg. If you can get 90 percent of back up Rozier for a tenth of the cost from the scrap heap, you probably do that.

4.) 04 Sep 2018 15:08:50
Honestly, I really think that Irving will be the one traded come Feb especially if Kyrie has any setbacks. It makes the most financial sense if the C's want to sustain the same intensity as they did after KI went down. Irving going down and the C's making it that far in the playoffs showed they really don't need him to achieve what they are looking for.

If the rumors have any legs that Irving will go to the Knicks then DA will move KI for a good player and picks at the deadline. Hard to believe C's would trade him to the Knicks who have no # 1st rd. picks. Kanter could be usefull at the 5 and Al at PF, but a third team would have to be involved for the C's to aquire a first rd. pick and another player.

5.) 04 Sep 2018 15:20:56
The Knicks have all 1st rounders. No team is giving a good player and picks for Irving if he is being traded because of a desire to be a Knick and a guarantee rental. Stop it.

6.) 04 Sep 2018 15:41:23
I think they'd be foolish to trade Irving or Rozier. Go into the 2019 offseason knowing you're losing one. Option #1 is Irving. If he walks, you match any offer on Rozier. It's kind of the perfect situation to be in with an all star on an expiring contract.

7.) 04 Sep 2018 15:55:44
Billj, they need Irving in the finals. They needed him in the ECFs and with the revamped Raptors, they may need him again this year. He just pushes the Celtics ceiling so much higher. He’s going to make plays in big spots. Even if your not sure about his future, I think the Celtics should roll the dice with him.

8.) 04 Sep 2018 18:06:31
I believe they need him. None of us know what's being discussed between Ainge and Irving. But if it looks like Kyrie may want to bolt then DA will move him for sure, Ainge isn't going to let him walk for nothing.

Knicks do have the 12th pick, but they'll have to give that to rid themselves of Noah. If the Knicks were to land KI and JB they'd gladly give that pick and Noah for a future 1st rd and player.



21 Aug 2018 00:46:37
If you're favorite team was down 1 and you could choose any current NBA player to take the shot, who would it be?

Personally, I go Kyrie with Lebron as a close 2nd.


1.) 21 Aug 2018 02:31:06
Steph curry. He practices circus shots for his warm-ups. Top 5 impact players in the league.

2.) 21 Aug 2018 02:46:05
Kd, in playoffs

Harden in regular season because he will get the whistle.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 04:27:19
Best shooter is. curry . By far no one even close.
To bad his team is up by so much he doesn’t get to see those crunch time shots very often.

Sooooo I’m going with jr smith .

Not like he would run to enter court and not even shoot.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 06:32:46
KD has the height advantage as well as touch.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 14:37:18
Depends on how much time is on the clock 1 second or 5 seconds and the other teams defense are they better at defending perimeter or paint? Closer to 5 seconds prob Davis. your down by 1 so a 2 works and no one can really stop him from driving without fouling. 1 second on the clock I go with Thompson he is currently the best catch and shoot player and is often over looked. Run a screen get him open for a second and he drains it.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 22:07:11
If you have time for a full possession, I'd go with Lebron or Durant. They're unstoppable and can create their own shot from the top of the key. They're both huge, can hit the deep shot, can pull up mid range, or can easily get to the rim and finish or draw the foul. They've both proven on the biggest stage possible that they finish when it matters in those kind of possessions more often than not.

One shot, catch and shoot, I'd take Curry over anyone, and it's probably not close. He can hit from anywhere inside of half court accurately.



19 Aug 2018 23:57:49
Assuming all of the other players on the team are average which group would pick for one game?

1. Jordan and Pippen
2.Durant and Lebron
3. Barkley, klay Thompson, and prime Rondo
4.Curry, Giannis and Derozan
5.Lowry, Drummond, Love, and McCollum
6. Magic, Ben Wallace , Ben Simmons, and prime Tony Allen
7. Walker, Booker, Jaylen Brown, Draymond, and Marc Gasol
8 Nash, Kerr, Stockton, West, and Iverson


1.) 20 Aug 2018 01:42:50
I'd take Kobe and Shaq. Oops, they are not there. :)

2.) 20 Aug 2018 04:09:58
Has to be 2, 3, or 4.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 04:54:13
I’d go #4 as great as 1 and 2 can be you get 3 players.
Some of the 4 packages are good but not all star studded teams can share the ball and work like the current warriors team.

Freaks athleticism and potential, Demar mid range, footwork and arsenal of attack, and the best shooter probably ever with the most range I’ve ever seen

Sign me up.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 01:37:18
Or probably lebron and Durant lol how can you not.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 02:47:27
3 couldn't work. Barkley will kill rondo.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 14:55:37
I would take Westbrook, Thompson, and Davis. Any of them could go for 50 any night, and they would b a P&R nightmare. But from your list Prob 4.

7.) 22 Aug 2018 15:44:46

Isaiah Thomas
Moses Malone
11. Kobe Bryant
12. Karl Malone.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 22:10:59
Durant when finished his career will be on this list.

7.) 21 Aug 2018 02:27:37
Durant could easily if he can still ball a few years after 35. Durant scores so easily and is a lengthy defender. He'll be up there if all goes well in the latter years.

8.) 21 Aug 2018 17:43:43
I think for me to put Durant in the top 10, he would need to either win a title away from the Warriors or finish top 5 alltime in points scored. I think, I’ll always hold the jump to the Warriors against him unless he can get a title on his own team. I don’t mind the super team stuff, but to go to a team that is that good and that beat you in the 7th game of conference finals is just a bad look.



17 Aug 2018 18:41:12
Taking into account fit together, what's the best 10 man rotation in today's league?

I'd go

Leonard/ Thompson
Lebron/ Antetokounmpo

This is assuming Leonard is healthy and close to the same player. My back up 4 and 5 came down to Giannis, Gobert, and Green. I chose Giannis over Green for his offensive ability and freak athleticism and Gobert, because it gives you an ability to play big. Multiple players on the team could give you something close to Draymond and that can't really be said about Gobert. I chose George over Butler because he's the better shooter. I considered Chris Paul at point, because of his defense. Then reconsidered because you could throw Lebron at point for stretches if you wanted to go defense heavy. Also, because Harden is an offensive machine and Curry's range just gives the opposing team to much area to cover. Westbrook is probably a top 5 or 10 player, but his lack of ability without the ball seems like a bad fit next to most of these guys imo.


1.) 17 Aug 2018 19:27:00
Jokic/ Embid
Davis/ Lbj
Giannis/ Durant
Thompson/ Butler
Irving/ Paul.

2.) 17 Aug 2018 19:59:24
I do same as yours just switch harden for Irving.

3.) 17 Aug 2018 23:12:05
Starting lineup: Curry, Durant, Giannis, Lebron, Davis. Guard a lineup that Lebron is the second smallest player. That size (without being “bigs”) is unstoppable on both ends of the court.

Reserves: Harden, Klay Thompson, Leonard (assuming he’s 100%), Lillard (homer pick), Gobert. A bunch of great shooters and two of the best defenders in the NBA. All of those guys can play off the ball to the ball dominant starters.

4.) 18 Aug 2018 01:35:56
Curry/ Kyrie
Harden/ Thompson
Lebron/ Kawhi
Durant/ Davis
Embiid/ Kat.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 15:15:09
I'd play AD at 4.

Steph, birdie
Harden Thompson
Kd, Kawhi
Lebron, AD
Gobert and embild.

Semiagree with Rad. The list is probably a little bigger than that, but they’re really only missing that 1 elite player. Tatum and maybe Brown could be elite and Irving is on the end of elite, but they need that 1 guy or a young big that has that upside.

I think you’d need. Second 1st and to take out Tyus Jones.

I’m not saying it will happen or should, but it’s not ridiculous to think that the Spurs would give up a first to get rid of Mills’s deal and get a solid player. If anyone is getting a the short end of the stick, it’s Orlando.
