The Cavs get Asik and a top 12 protected 1st round pick

The Pelicans get Jefferson, Frye and Tavares.

The Cavs get a pick, take care of their roster problem, and shed over a million dollars helping their luxury tax situation

The Pelicans get to shed Asik's bad contract, which might be important if Cousins does resign since they would end up deep in the luxury tax. They end up with 3 players with no guaranteed money next year. They also get a reliable veteran wing in Jefferson and a guy in Frye who could play next to Davis or Cousins and spread the floor. The Pelicans need shooting and Frye can provide that at an elite level. While Davis and Cousins can make up for his deficiencies in other areas.

Like it for both teams.

The Cavs get Aldridge, Green, and Young

The Pacers get Smith, Tavares, Jefferson, Felder, Zizic, a Spurs 1st, and 2nd

The Spurs get Thompson, Frye, Osman and the Brooklyn first

The Cavs bring in 3 guys that will help them win now. Green would be a great fit at Sg for the Cavs, Young would be an upgrade at the back up pf and has a similiar style play to Jeff Green, and Aldridge gives them a 4th allstar and player that the Warriors may struggle with given the attention they would have to give the rest of the Cavs weapons.

The Pacers take on a bad contract in smith, but get back a nice package of assets to help in a rebuild.

The Spurs need to shake things up. In a league that's turning into an arms race they have fallen behind. This opens up more cap space for them next summer, gives them a young centern who can start, gives them a top pick in the draft for Pop to mold, and I think Pop could turn Osman into better version of Danny Green.


1.) 07 Oct 2017 20:34:03
sounds alright for the cavs if aldridge and green are really how they want to spend the bk pick. but this move doesn’t make much sense for the spurs if they are trying to contend this year, no denying the bk pick is great for their future but i think this trade decreases their chances in the west for this season. also, the pacers are taking a lot of garbage just to get late 1st and 2nd rounders.

2.) 07 Oct 2017 21:00:16
For the Pacers Zizic is a solid prospect who probably would have went in the first round had he come out this year rather than a few years ago, they get a first and second, Felder and Tavares both probably get looks and if they don't like what they see they're in the final guaranteed years of their contracts. Jefferson is in his last guaranteed year and could be a cheap veteran to help with the lockerroom. Smith's contract is really the only negative asset they take on.

For the Spurs, I don't think they can compete with the top of the West either way and Aldridge and Green both don't seem to be in their long term plans. They get to cash I. Now and add 2 solid pieces, while also getting a potential star in the draft and maintaining a ton of cap room to go out and get another star to go with Leonard.

3.) 09 Oct 2017 21:29:18
Pretty solid all the way around. If there was maybe someone on the light end it might be the Spurs but overall a solid proposal.

The Cavs get Green and M Gasol

Memphis gets Murray, Osman, Felder, Monroe(exp), Parker(exp), Shumpert, Brooklyn first, 2 Bucks firsts lottery protected, and a Spurs first

San Antionio gets Conley and Thompson

Milwaukee gets Aldridge


1.) 26 Sep 2017 18:59:12
I like this for SA and the Cavs

Not sure about Memphis, but they should tank indeed.

Milwaukee shouldn't rush. Cleveland is to strong, the next two years (or one if LBJ leaves) . So Milwaukee, shouldn't trade two draft picks for LMA.

2.) 27 Sep 2017 15:39:17
That's assuming that Giannis, doesn't opt out and leave as a FA, Gasupo.



25 Sep 2017 20:39:57
The Suns get Tavares, Jefferson(Waive), Felder and Shumpert

The Cavs get Chandler




23 Sep 2017 12:20:13
The Lakers get Monroe(exp), Parker(exp), Anderson(exp) and a SA 2020 1st top 10 protected

The Spurs get Randle, Clarkson, Deng, and Parker

The Bucks get Aldridge and the Spurs 18 first

The Lakers get all the capspace they need and add a pick which could help with building depth on a team that if they sign multiple super stars in the offseason will be in desperate need of bench production.

The Spurs get an influx of young talent. The Spurs have been great at keeping players healthy, which seems like Parkers biggest weakness. If he can return near full strength under Pop's coaching he could become an allstar. Clarkson could give them a combo guard and be the heir to Manu's 6th man position. I think Pop could make Randle's post passing a real weapon. This gives them more scoring, stops their slight downward trend, and I think Pop would love the challenge of making NBA stars out of some talented young guys.

The Bucks drop a few million which has been rumored to be a goal. They cash in on Parker rather than risking it, end up with a borderline all star than can help this young team take the next step and they get a first which could be used later to add to their roster.

How do you think Boston responds to the Hayward injury? Do they stay the course and hope that Brown and Tatum can fill the void, go out and try to get a veteran sf, or possibly take a step back and try to make the roster younger now that they don't have much hope of getting out of the East?

If Hayward won't be 100 percent by the end of next year or even worse he'll never be the same player again, I think trading a guy like Horford, might not be a bad idea. The injury could push the Celtics time line back a few years and at that time Horford won't be much of an asset.

If they expect Hayward to be fine by the start of next season, I think going out and trying to get a cheap veteran that can score would be ideal.




26 Sep 2017 22:42:57
Do you think the Cavs should use the Brooklyn pick and some of their other young assets to go after another allstar? Personally, with Wade onboard and IT suppose to be back before January, they need to be aggressive going after an allstar level player. In my opinion, they're one big time player away from being on the Warriors level. The Warriors would still have the better big 4 no matter who the Cavs get (that could be had), but the Cavs bench is going to be loaded. Their 2nd team, might be better than some teams starters.




21 Sep 2017 16:51:09
Where do you think Lebron plays next year.

I'll go 45 percent chance he stats in Cleveland. 20 percent chance of the Lakers. 30 percent chance he ends up forming a super team with Melo, Wade and Paul wherever they can find a team with cap space. 5 percent chance of Houston, Minnesota, San Antonio or Milwaukee.


1.) 23 Sep 2017 00:54:16
if the lakers superteam thing doesn’t pan out, i feel like houston or san antonio make sense.

2.) 23 Sep 2017 07:55:34
I could see the Spurs as a possibility since they have some expiring contracts and could open up more space fairly easy. Though, if Lebron won't take a pay cut, it will be difficult for them, but Houston would have to gut their roster and I'm not sure how they could make the numbers work. They don't really have much to offer in a sign and trade to the Cavs.



17 Sep 2017 16:22:04
What do you think the league should do with the lottery? Personally, I don't mind teams tanking. It's really the only way small market teams can compete with the big market teams long term, but if they truly want to fix tanking, I think they should make make all of the lottery picks drawn instead of just the first 3. They should even out the odds and give the worst 22 teams (or the bottom 4 seeds in the playoffs in each conference, but that might just make the conferences even more unbalanced), a chance in the lottery. If their is only a 4 percent difference between the 22nd worst team and the 11th worst and a 4 percent difference between the 11th worst team and the worst team, would it really be worth it to tank? Also teams that don't have a shot at winning a series wouldn't be penalized for making the playoffs at that point.


1.) 20 Sep 2017 23:32:34
I like the idea, bringing the bottom playoff teams into the lottery.
It's a chance for mediocre teams to improve, without breaking up the core.



27 Aug 2017 00:37:47
What extra asset if any do you think the Cavs get in the Boston trade or do you not think it gets done?


1.) 27 Aug 2017 06:26:28
I don't think Boston will include a player. I think it SHOULD BE Boston's own 2019 1st.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 16:25:58
I'd probably say the 18, because it keeps them more flexible (more future picks can be traded) and there really isn't a ton of difference from a value stand point, but yeah I think a late first to make this go away for Boston makes the most sense.

It would take more than a first to get rid of Noah's contract and why give up Lopez and Portis to take that on?

I don't think Drummond is a big enough upgrade over Thompson to justify giving up a potential top 5 pick in a loaded draft. Maybe if Detroit was really motivated to move Drummond and they would take that package with this years Cavs first the 2021 first something like top 10 protected and either Zizic or Osman, I could see it.

The Bucks quickly say no. Is O'quinn even an upgrade over Henson? And considering teams can buy 2nd
Round picks for around 2 million dollars, the Bucks would need to get around 27 2nd round picks for this to make sense.

I think the Lakers turn this down as well. Why give up Clarkson if it doesn't open up the cap space that you want next year.

If not trading isn't an option, Beal. It's hard to judge in retrospect though. Lamb looked like a potentially solid player with upside and Martin was coming off a huge year.

Also, look at Love's rebounding in the finals. He and Lebron probably had 2/ 3s of the Cavs rebounds.
