If Melo agrees to play for Portland if he won't then this won't happen cause Portland won't want him just to buy him out.

Thunder get Aminu and Turner
Portland get Melo Ferguson and then one of or both a 1st and 2nd round pick from thunder whatever needed to make the trade happen.

Thunder will be freeing up 5 mil in salary which will take their luxury tax down a good bit then they can stretch singler contract to free up another 5 mil and save more money in luxury tax. And they add depth which they need.

Portland was wanting Melo before he was traded to thunder and they still want him as far as I know I'm sure y'all will tell me if I'm wrong. And they dump Turner's bad contract.

Okc is probably looking to clear more money off their books.

2.) 14 Jul 2018 01:53:30
Okc wants salary savings. This isn't much help.

3.) 14 Jul 2018 13:01:22
Don’t see OKC making this move. Turner’s deal is bad, and still has another year beyond this on it. OKC likes Ferguson, and being in the tax with or without Melo, picks are going to be valuable to add cost controlled players.

Thunder and Hawks

Thunder get Bazemore
Hawks get Melo (buyout) a 1st and 2nd round pick

Hawks get rid of Bazemores contract which is more than 18mil for the next 2 seasons and he is not worth 18 mil. They buyout Melo and get a 1st and 2nd I don't think they would get much better for Bazemore.
Thunder takes on Bazemores contract but even though it is bad it's not as bad as Melos and he would be a good player to come off the bench and score.

After this trade happens they make a trade with Cavs

Thunder get korver
Cleveland gets Abrines, Patterson, and a 2nd round pick

Thunder get a solid catch and shoot 3 point shooter. Korver is pretty old so Cavs replace him with Abrines and add some depth at PF/ C. Abrines is not as good as korver but he can still hit the 3 and still fairly young and still has the potential to improve.

After these two trades thunder sign luc mbah a moute
Thunders lineup
Westbrook/ Felton/ Hall (rookie)
Roberson/ Bazemore/ Diallo (rookie)
George/ Korver/ Ferguson
Grant/ luc mbah a moute/ Hervey (rookie)
Adams/ Noel/ Dakari Johnson

After these moves they have a better bench and better 3 point scoring. And they have a good mix of young and veteran players.

Are u out of your mind hawks 1st is top 3 pick. A 2nd rounder 31 to 35 pick. Is more than enough.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 16:48:03
The Hawks are getting the thunders pick all thunder get is Bazemore.

3.) 08 Jul 2018 18:57:01
I'm not sure it's worth a 1st for the Thunder. Just a 2nd seems like enough since it would get the Hawks out of Bazemore's contract.

4.) 09 Jul 2018 03:00:15
Thunder buyout melo its the only play for them.

LA get walker exp contract
Hornets get Lonzo and 2 1st or
Lonzo a 1st and 2 2nd round or
Lonzo, Hart, and a 2nd round or 2

Hornets have thought about trading walker before and with them being a lottery team with walker and all the other bad contracts they have are the going to want to give him the money next off season he wants to make them a lottery team over the luxury tax? this way they get a young player or 2 with good upside and a few picks. Lakers get rid of Lonzo (Lavar) and get a clear starting PG and give up less than they would for Lillard.


1.) 07 Jul 2018 17:33:24
Lonzo knee issue will make teams not want him. He could still need to have surgery and might not be available for the start of the season.

2.) 07 Jul 2018 21:14:42
If you're a rebuilding team, I'm not sure a meniscus tear or him missing training camp is all that scary. His dad's mouth on the other hand may be. Although, I've seen people on here speculate that small market teams should be more wary of him and honestly, I think going to a small market team might benefit him. No one is going to care what the pg of the 20 and 62 Hornets, Cavs, Magic or etc. has to say.

3.) 07 Jul 2018 21:15:47
lonzo hart and a 2nd seems closest to a reasonable deal.

4.) 08 Jul 2018 02:03:28
Meniscus tear is one of the least damaging injuries long term, so I agree that it doesn’t hurt Zo’s value. I think Lonzo, a 1st and a 2nd probably gets it done.

Lakers get Butler
Timberwolves get Lonzo, Hart, and 1 or 2 1st round picks
Lakers get Butler and Tyus Jones
Timberwolves get Lonzo, Kuzma, Deng and 1 or 2 1st round picks.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 20:01:44
twolves pass, especially on trade scenario #2. With the new team, Lakers draft picks will likely have little value, most likely role players with late first rounders. So 3 role players and the "Ball Circus" for Butler, Thibs runs from this idea. And taking on Dengs contract to switch hart with Kuzma is no way worth it. WAYYYYY overvaluing Kuzma. Nice offensive player, but a net negative.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 20:17:53
I hate bron bc the delisional fans that follow. Derozan butler davis not happening. Only lenard make sense.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 20:56:57
Y would Lakers trade for Leonard they will sign him as a free agent and can trade for another star. What if Butler declines his extension because he knows he can't win on the wolves. What if Toronto wanna rebuild because they know the 76ers are better and getting better plus the Celtics already better. Lakers got chips to trade and expiring contracts but not over payin. Magic would rather give up a few picks to dump deng and sign Leonard and Keep there youngsters. Like the George hill trade.



02 Jul 2018 18:10:15
If Melo accepts Cleveland and Cleveland decides to rebuild

Cavs get Melo Abrines Ferguson singler 1st round unprotected and 2 2nd round picks.
Thunder get Love Thompson

Thunder get rid of Melo and get a good stretch 4 that can rebound and would b a good fit for George Westbrook and Adams. But they will be in luxury tax again in 2019-20 season unless they do more after this before 19-20 season to clear money.
Cavs clear bout 40mil off the books for next year free agency get a young player with good potential, and get a young player that can hit threes. Also a few draft picks.


1.) 02 Jul 2018 18:23:48
so you want to dump future salary and get a 1st.

Thunder don't need dedmon they signed Noel. But Bazemore would add depth at SG even though he has a bad contract (not as bad as Melos, but his is one bad year) then maybe they can trade Abrines for someone who will help their depth at PF or SF.

A couple of these the other teams don't agree to make the trades. Smith is not worth a 1st round pick in my opinion blazers say no. And I don't think LA would trade a 19 1st for Melo they would b getting rid of Deng but I think if they would the thunder would have already done it. And I don't think thunder would want love and korver that would make them pay more in luxury tax than they already are, and they would still have korver contract next year to which would make it hard to add a decent player to the bench in free agency next year. And I don't think your three way trade would happen either.

Lavine can't stay healthy. He would be worth hield and a 1st at most. We still don't really know what his cieling is cause he can't stay healthy.

Anthony Davis is worth more than that. The 2020 1st round pick wouldn't be a high pick. They would b taking a bad contract. For Lonzo who has a very inconsistent shot but if he fixes that he does have good potential to be an all star. And Kuzma who has good potental. In my opinion they would have to throw in at least hart and another first. If he only had one year left and wanted to b somewhere besides the lakers that might would work but he will still have 2 years left at that point.
