The Warriors get Butler.

The Timberwolves get Igoudola, looney (or young player of choice not named bell), and 2 1sts

The Warriors rap up the championship and give themselves Durant insurance.

No! Wolves declined that deal I rather Trade him to Rockets or Thunder to Challenge the Warriors.


2.) 12 Oct 2018 19:04:59
I don’t want Butler to go to the Warriors and it doesn’t sound like he will, but that would be a pretty competitive package. Also, it would be the best collection of talent ever assembled.


3.) 12 Oct 2018 23:48:21
The warriors would not be beaten unless there were multiple injuries with butler.

The Suns get Rozier

The Celtics get the Suns 1st (top 10 protected dropping to 5, 3 and then unprotected)

rkenne_16

Celtics have spent a ton of time developing Rozier, and they could have four picks in the first round next June anyway. So that deal is not happening. Rozier will stick in Boston until at least July 1, when they'll have a good idea if Irving's knee is sound and if he's ready to re-sign. After this season they'll also know what's going on with Anthony Davis, and Rozier could be part of a deal there.


2.) 11 Oct 2018 16:12:06
How would rozier be a part of a deal as a free agent? Irving is in the fold long term and they won’t be able to keep Rozier. The money just isn’t there to give him a deal. All of those picks won’t convey next year and if they do you can turn them into more future assets at the worst or use them to get Davis. Keeping a steady stream of picks wouldn’t be a bad option given all of the talent they already have and how young they are. They could be set up for the next 15 years, if they play it right (which Ainge probably will) .


3.) 11 Oct 2018 16:56:29
Irving is not in the fold long term.
Rozier cannot be a free agent next July -- he can be a restricted free agent (if he doesn't sign a deal before Monday) .
I didn't say all of the picks will convey. I said they could convey.
If they knew they could get Davis for a boatload of first-rounders, they might consider moving Rozier. But not until then.


4.) 11 Oct 2018 17:00:06
Irving can say whatever he wants, but I wouldn't take him at his word. Teams have been burned too many times with that (Boozer, Aldridge to name two recent ones) . I wouldn't trade Rozier until Irving is signed (which obviously can't happen, because Rozier would be a free agent at that time) .

Matching whatever he gets and then flipping him the following year might be the best course of action for Boston. Or just let him walk this offseason if he gets a massive deal.


5.) 11 Oct 2018 18:04:00
I qs taken aback a bit by the articles written that the Celtics are trying to extend Rozier. I always thought he'd be traded, but I think they will get a deal done, which will be beneficial in the long run. IE. He would bring back a better package than he would of he were a pending free agent.
I think Irving will be true to his word, because all along this off season neither Ainge or the Celtics ever publicly panicked whenever those Irving rumors came out. I just think, they knew something that no one else knew. that they were confident that Irving would re-sign.


 

 

11 Oct 2018 14:51:47
Minnesota gets Smith, Korver, Chandler, and Philly's 2019 1st

The Cavs get Bayless(exp) and 2 Philly 2nds

The 76ers get Butler

rkenne_16

 

 

08 Oct 2018 00:30:25
Utah gets Butler

Minnesota gets Burks, Sefolosha, Allen, Utah 19 1st and a 2nd

rkenne_16

1.) 08 Oct 2018 04:55:15
I think butler could win in Utah but I do t think he would stay.


2.) 08 Oct 2018 16:27:38
I have to agree with Btec, Utah could be really dangerous with Butler, but getting him to stay is the issue. A lineup of Mitchell, Butler, Ingles, Favors and Gobert with quality vets like Rubio and Crowder would be a top three seed and potentially the Warriors biggest threat in the West.


3.) 09 Oct 2018 00:18:38
It seems like he needs to be surrounded by like minded players and Utah’s team kind of fits that. He might be happy getting to play with guys that seem just as intense as he is. Plus, it’s hard to leave a good team and if they could get him for something like the package above it would probably be worth the gamble.


 

 

07 Oct 2018 16:54:32
The Knicks get Dieng and Butler

The Timberwolves get Lee, Hardaway, Ntilikina, and the Knicks 19 1st

rkenne_16

1.) 07 Oct 2018 17:19:55
I like the trade. Nkilitina isn't going to have much value to the wolves with Teague, rose. Jones already there. Trade Jones to phoenix?


2.) 08 Oct 2018 14:45:32
I think you try to trade Teague, but with Thibs fighting for his job and running the front office, I’m not sure he’s willing to buy into developing young players rather than playing win now type guys.

Who are you thinking will win ROY?

IMO, Ayton looks like he could run away with it. I was doubtful of him even through summer league, but the guy is putting up huge numbers so far in the preseason.

Doncic would probably be my second guess. He looks like a high end offensive player already.

Young and Sexton could be wildcards with how much they might have the ball in their hands.

rkenne_16

1.) 08 Oct 2018 18:27:24
I feel like young has little chance because he is going to be super inefficient and horrific on defense. I think it comes down to Doncic and Ayton, but perhaps a wildcard like Knox, Sexton or Carter can make some noise.


2.) 08 Oct 2018 22:41:39
Miles bridges, Kevin knox, ayton, doncic, Jaren Jackson I think will be in the conversation. Bagley could as well with plenty of playing time to go around in sac. Had a good game the other night. Carter Jr. Is solid too.


3.) 09 Oct 2018 01:23:46
Doncic.


4.) 09 Oct 2018 05:47:35
Doncic over Ayton only because is franchise is more stable then suns and mavs have made poor decisions lately but trading for doncic was a excellent move.

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.

rkenne_16

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.

rkenne_16

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

rkenne_16

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

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.

The Cavs would probably need to add an asset to move Thompson unless he comes out and looks really good the first half of the season.

Tatum and Brown look like future allstars and NOs is only moving Davis if they have to. Unless guys like KAT or Embiid/ Simmons get offered up (they won’t), Boston will be able to put together the most competitive package for Davis without offering Both.

So the Grizzlies move off one of the worst deals in the league for free?

Hill, Korver and Smith have a combine 7 million in guaranteed money after this year and Cedi looks like he could become a starting caliber player. Warren is the better prospect, but not by a ton. This is awful for the Cavs.

Brown is a 22 year old versatile 2 way wing that can shoot and looks like a future allstar, why would Boston trade him unless they’re getting elite talent back? The Magic have nothing interesting enough to Boston to get Brown.
