I don't think this will happen or that the Thunder will end up trading Melo, but this could be interesting.

The Hornets get Melo(buyout)

The Thunder get Monk and Batum.

The Hornets want to save money and Batum's contract is awful. Especially for a team that's not going to be good.

Batum could give the Thunder what they wanted out of Melo and if Monk can figure it out, he could turn into the ideal shooting guard in that line up.

I like it for thunder but don't think they would pay the taxes.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 02:11:25
ll, I agree. This gives them a player now and a player with a ton of upside though. That made me think that it could possibly make them think about it.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 04:22:20
It's all about money. I can't see a deal out there, I think thunder are optimistic something will play out with a trade but it doesn't appear to be likely.

Toronto gets Kawhi and Green ( Carroll trade exception)

The Spurs get Anunoby, Valancuinas, and Toronto's 19 and 21sts


1.) 13 Jul 2018 16:01:53
How do evualate talent? beside not understand cba rules, salary don't match here. Since toronto is absorbing more and they are over cap trade does not work.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 17:17:48
Shizzee, they have a trade exception from Carroll that could account for all of the Green salary. As for talent evaluation, no, the Spurs aren't getting back any where near the value a healthy Kawhi gives you, but it's going to come down to the best offer and from everything that's being reported teams aren't willing to give up a ton for Kawhi. Which is understandable. There is a good chance he's a rental, there aren't a ton of teams bidding on him, he didn't play last year, he still might be injured, and even if healthy he may never be the same player. They want 3 1sts and Anunoby in his 2nd year plus 2 1sts are pretty close to that, they save 12 million here, and JV is decent player that I think Pop could do some nice things with. Plus, betting odds recently change and have Toronto tied for 1st with the Spurs on where Kawhi will open the season.

A few Love trades

The Cavs get Mahimi, Brown and a 2019 1st

Washington gets Love

The Cavs get Turner, Leonard, Swanigan, Simons, the Portland 2019 1st and 2nd

Portland gets Love and KorverKorver

The Cavs get the Thunder 2020, the Houston 2020 (guessing on both picks that are tradable), Houston 2nd and Thunder 2nd Anderson, Huestis, Qi and Brown

The Rockets get Melo

The Thunder get Love

4. The Cavs get Wes Mathews, Finney Smith, and a 2021 1st top 5 protected

The Mavs get Love

The Pelicans get Love

The Lakers get Cousins and Korver

6 the Cavs get Parker 1 years 24 million per with a 2nd year team option

The Hornets get Saric

Philly gets Green, Korver, Nance, and Leonard


1.) 02 Jul 2018 14:10:04
I'd look for cavs deadline deals. Blazers have no interest in love. There is no win now mode when you get swept out of the first round 2 of 3 postseasons.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 16:24:21
Just throwing some different ideas out there seeing what's plausible.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 17:14:44
I believe the Bucks would pass. No need for Love, and Milwaukee currently has 11 Guards. (PG, PG/ SG, SG/ SF) So, Korver also wouldn't be needed.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 12:50:50
i like the idea of the hou-okc one, but hou is overpaying with picks even with dumping andersen.
the boogie deal is great for la, but love+miro+ad sounds messy, pels should be pursuing wings.
the hornets/ spurs blockbuster overcompensates cavs and screws char.

5.) 03 Jul 2018 17:33:18
I really like the one for the sixers. Idk how the other teams would feel about it, but the sixers would be all over it.



02 Jul 2018 02:43:31
The Cavs get Batum, Gasol(buyout), TLC, the Heat 1st, Philly 2021, and 2 futute Philly 2nds

The Spurs get Hill(exp),Covington, Saric, Walker and the Philly 2019

The Hornets get Bayless and Fultz

The 76ers get Mills, Korver, Leonard, and Love


1.) 02 Jul 2018 03:10:49
They tried to trade Fultz at the draft and received tepid offers. Batum deal is bad but Bayless and Fultz is a really sad return for walker.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 03:15:42
I I like it for all but I don’t know if the Sixers want to take on that much salary.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 05:31:59
@rite they should, that team is a shoo-in for the finals.



30 Jun 2018 06:37:02
The Cavs get the Anderson, Nene, 19, 20, 21 Rockets 1sts and 2 Rockets 2nds

The Rockets get Nene and Anderson

The Rockets get another elite offensive player that can give them another at times and can fit perfectly with the run and gun. Nance is another guy that can fit in with that defensive scheme. This is a team that has the Warriors on the ropes. You do this the Warriors are in serious trouble.

For the Cavs, they max out the return they can get on Love. Plus they save some money.


1.) 30 Jun 2018 07:34:12

2.) 30 Jun 2018 11:55:30
So Cleveland gets five draft choices and doesn't have to give up anything? I really like it from the Cavs' point of view. Rockets might have a tough time explaining it to their fans, though.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 12:03:41

4.) 30 Jun 2018 15:56:06
Do you mean love and a 3 million dollar guy? rockets would like to trade Anderson but not at this expense.

5.) 30 Jun 2018 16:35:15
The Rockets get Love and Nance ahaha my fault.

Just trying to see what the likely offers for Kawhi are and what people think the best might be at this point.

Lakers- kuzma, Hart, 19 and 21 Lakers 1st plus 1 year filler

Clippers- Harris, Gilgeous Alexander, and possibly a pick

76ers- Covington, Saric, and the Heat 1st

Raptors- Derozan and Anunoby or Pascal plus they take on Mills

How close am I on the offers and what would be the best in your opinion?


1.) 14 Jul 2018 18:20:31
Not a slam on you but the market popovich is trying to create by asking for ridiculous returns, wake me up when Leonard signs.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 11:36:54
Pop too set in his ways
RC in unsailed water (spurs don’t trade stars)
Kawhi very quite
Impossible to work out what the hell is going to happen.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 14:29:04
If you saw how the bucks rolled over and played ball, I'd guess pop needs to do a little of that and Leonard needs to be a little more parker like.



13 Jul 2018 09:50:33
I like the 2 move from Brooklyn today. They basically have need up with a 1st and 2 seconds for next to nothing. They've really been making some good moves the past few yeads, They've found ways to bring in young players with potential through trades and free agency, they've managed to add extra picks, they've drafted at a ridiculously high level given the fact that they've been picking late in the draft, and they'll end up with significant cap space next year. What a great job by Marks. He was in an impossible situation and has pulled multiple rabbits out of his hat.


1.) 13 Jul 2018 17:21:00
Agreed. They should finally have a top 10 pick next draft, along with the assets they're accumulating and cap space. I doubt they are able to sign a significant free agent, but they can start throwing offer sheets at solid restricted free agents while they build.

Maybe it's just the expectations from the previous GMs in Brooklyn, but Marks seems like a top tier GM.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 17:46:48
They're pretty close to having the cap space for 2 max deals next season and it wouldn't be ridiculous to think that stars that might be thinking about the Knicks could see what Brooklyn is doing and think that's the better (also Dolan less) option.

3.) 13 Jul 2018 18:40:07
It would be hilarious if porzingis went to Brooklyn and spurned Dolan and the knicks.



11 Jul 2018 20:07:58
Who would you consider the best wing defenders in basketball?

My list
1. Leonard (if he can get back to his preinjury ability)
2 Roberson
3 Covington
4 Anderson
5 Butler
6 George
7 Green
8 Giannis
9 Durant
10 LeBron

Honorable mention- Tatum, Brown, Middleton, Porter jr, Thompson, Igoudola, Bazemore, Winslow, Richardson, Mbah A Moute, Ariza, Ingles, Sefolosha, Allen, and Olidipo in no order.

You could probably put the last 3 in the top 10 higher, because when they're locked in defensively, they can do so many different things on defense. That said, they also don't always play hard on that end.


1.) 11 Jul 2018 21:07:05
Lebron isn't top 10. If Tony Allen healthy, Aaron gordon?



10 Jul 2018 15:37:20
Which player has you most excited during summer league?

As a Cavs fan, Osman has looked how you would want him to look in the Summer league. He looks like an NBA player playing against Fringe guys. Zizic has been solid and Sexton hasn't been perfect, but he's definetly shown a ton of potential and seems to have a great attitude towards the game.

Outside of the Cavs, Knox, Gilgeous-Alexander and Jackson have looked great. Knox is an amazing athlete and has shown more skill and aggression than I think he was able to show at Kentucky. For SGA, he's exactly what he was hyped as being. He seems to understand the game more than you would expect out of a 20 year old rookie that hasn't even had an NBA training camp yet. Jackson looks further along on offense than expected. The guy just looks like an ideal big man in today's NBA with a ridiculous ceiling.

As for disappointments, Young has to be the clear favorite. He seems to be struggling with athleticism and size of summer league players. You obviously can't write him off, but with a bigger sample size than most players, Atlanta has to be pretty concerned. They passed up the most proven player in the draft for him and only got a top 5 protected pick for it. From some of the quotes coming out of Dallas, it seems like Atlanta could have atleast gotten more and might have been much better off keeping Doncic.
Bagley has been pretty bad. I think you would expect him to put up big numbers in the summer league similiar to in college against guys that can't overwhelm him with size and that athletically can't match him. That just hasn't happened. I think you've seen a lot of the reasons that most experts weren't as high on him as you would expect for such a dominant college players. He can get pushed around, he has perimeter skills but he's not going to light it up as a shooter and he's not much of a defender. He just has a long way to go before he's a real impact player in the NBA.
Not exactly a disappointment, but Ayton looks like the same ultra talent and apathetic guy he was at Arizona.


1.) 10 Jul 2018 16:18:42
DeAnthony Melton looks great, could be first PG from the bench for the Rockets, since they don't have a ear backup for CP3.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 17:11:04
Preston for a 2-way looks good, pacers have a few guys looking great including holiday, Knox is tearing it up. Knox has been really good. Young is exactly what I thought he'd be. Not saying the jury is out but young has a long way to go before he's an nba'er at a high level.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 17:30:56
Yeah, I like the Preston addition for the Cavs. He looks like he has a long way to go, but he has shown some upside.

4.) 11 Jul 2018 14:01:16
From my team's side:

Trent Jr looks like a nice rotational guy for the next decade. 3 and D.

Simons is closer to playing than expected. He's raw, but there's a huge amount of talent there.

Zach Collins with 8 blocks in two games looks like a defensive beast. If he keeps improving, he could be a top tier defender in the NBA.

5.) 11 Jul 2018 17:33:26
Collins will be just fine can't figure out why hart or he are even playing summer league. Baldwin has been a shining point for blazers.



02 Jul 2018 01:32:20
With the Status of next year's pick (Atlanta gets it top 10 protected next 2 years and then it turns to 2nds), the Cavs need to get what they can for Love. Losing that pick is worst case scenario.

They also need to look into trying to use Hill and Smith's contracts as assets. Taking on bad contracts for assets would be best case scenario here.

It's time to trust the process.

As a Cavs fan, it will suck losing, but I do love the excitement of the rebuild.


1.) 02 Jul 2018 13:20:59
I love the Cavs I think it's time for them to trade love to the suns for Chandler and dudley plus a first. Trade hill and smith who are close you get to expiring contracts to the Knicks and take on Noah and Lee plus 2019 pick. Here the question will they resign hood.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 13:37:15
Trade love for warren and chandler. Warren is better than hood.

Torque, the Bucks would pass? They get an allstar for a late 1st and trash.

Adams is good. It's just that you can go out and get bigs that aren't significantly worse for cheap. Why trade a star for Adams if I can get Dedmond or someone for a quarter of the cost without giving anything up. Adams does a lot of things well, but you can't build your defense around him and you can't have him carry your offense for stretches.

They get a bad contract in return that runs a year longer than Melo. They're better off buying out and stretching Melo. They aren't going to trade him for another big contract. Also the salary doesn't work.

I skimmed your reasoning, but outside of the Whiteside trade, these are all horribly 1 sided in favor of OKC. They don't have a 1st for a few years and Adams has little value because of his contract. He's a good player, but you can get most of what he gives you for a quarter of the price.
