76ers trade 3rd pick, 36th pick, 39th pick, 50th pick, Okafor, Luwawu, Bayless and Long for 7th pick, LaVine, Dieng and Dunn.

Draft Monk 7th, Lessort 46th.

76ers sign George Hill 4 year max, sign Tavares 2 year 3 million.


1.) 20 May 2017 14:25:53
I like the trade for both teams, but dislike the Hill signing for the sixers. Even with lavine and mono, i'd still go after redick in free agency ( 2 year deal) . Saves a ton of money over signing Hill for 4 year max deal, and the more pure shooters surrounding simmons and embiid the better.

2.) 20 May 2017 15:12:56
Bad for Minnesota. Give up way too much value for junk to move up to draft who? Ball? Pass. Jackson? Wolves have Wiggins. Monk? Wolves have LaVine, so no need to trade up.



04 May 2017 16:40:14

Holiday 4/70 million
Crawford 3/20 million

Bogdanovic 3/30 million
McLemore 3/20 million
V. Carter 1/2 million
J. Jack vet. min.

Moore and 2019 2nd rounder for D. Stone
Asik, S. Hill 2019 1st rounder (top 8 protected, 2020 top 3 protected or converts to 2020 and 2022 2nd rounders)


1. don't give the 'why would Nets do that' because they would do anything for draft picks and none of the current players on their roster has future with that team except maybe LeVert and RHJ.
2. When wizards sign Porter they won't have cap space to re sign Bogdanovic unless they get rid of Mahinmi.
3.NOLA tries their luck with this team, if it doesn't work at trade deadline trade Cousins.
4. This team looks good on paper, contending team maybe, Vince gets one last shot at the ring, if its not going maybe trade with Cousins at the trade deadline.

1.) 04 May 2017 17:04:55
I'm not going to ask "why would the nets do that? " But rather, Where are the nets in your offseason plans? I just don't see them.

2.) 04 May 2017 18:52:46
You got me good there. Nets are in the Asik, S. Hill trade.

3.) 04 May 2017 19:55:08
So the Pels trade Hill, Asik, and a 1st rounder for WHAT from the Nets?

4.) 04 May 2017 22:23:22
For McDaniels and Acy. They get rid of terrible contracts that's why the pick is thrown in this trade. You could've figured it out by yourself.

5.) 05 May 2017 01:31:34
Well English must not be your first language because you cannot express your ideas clearly with it. Under the trade section of your post, Acy and Mcdaniels are nowhere to be found. If I couldn't decipher your jumbled writing then probably others couldn't either. Writing is a valuable skill, maybe you should learn it.



01 May 2017 08:12:18
After exiting PO i think Clippers are blowing everything up. don't think anyone will resign.

Paul signs with Spurs, Spurs would have to get rid of Parker.

Griffin signs with Thunder or Bulls if both find cap space. Timberwolves are the best destination for him IMO, young core and in 2 years when they develop contending team.

Reddick would fit great with NOLA but they would have to get rid of those terrible contracts (Hill, Asik, Moore). I can see him signing for 76ers also.

Jordan gets traded to Celtics for Clippers pick (which will probably end up being a lottery pick if they blew it all up) and Rozier and right to Abdel Nader.

1.) 01 May 2017 16:10:42
Why would they leave? Chris paul loves LA and everything that comes with it. Heck he went to the oscars 2 hours after a game about a month ago.

Blake is having his 2nd kid with his girlfriend who is from LA and went to USC. He's not going anywhere. Redick could leave but it would be because the clippers don't want him anymore.

2.) 01 May 2017 16:49:28
Its obvious why they would leave; because that Clippers group has only disappointed since being assembled and there is no clear route to them improving themselves (they've had basically same roster for past few years with only changes a few veterans) with them having traded a fair number of their draft picks already.

As top athletes and competitors I'm sure they'd like to spend the rest of their careers on a team that gives them a chance at a title. They can always move back to LA once they retire if they enjoy it so much. Moving with kids isn't as big of a hassle if its during the summer when they aren't in school (and young) .

The Clippers 2019 pick the Celtics have is 1-14 protected so it isn't that valuable and eventually turns into a 2nd rounder in 2022. Jordan would be a great pickup for Celtics but they'd need to give up more than a pick which would likely equate to a 2nd rounder if Clippers blew things up.



27 Apr 2017 22:50:41
Orlando goes rebuilding (or they continue one), they get a promising young core with some more great and solid future picks. Boston gets a rebounding center they need, starting SG and they still have around 30 mil in cap space to sign someone like Hayward maybe.

to Boston: Vucevic, Fournier

to Orlando: Bradley, Rozier, Zeller, Mickey, Brooklyn 1st 2018, Boston 1st 2018, couple of future 2nd rounders and rights to Abdel Nader

Bradley/Hezonja/Thornwell (35th)
Ross/Tatum (5th)/Nader
Gordon/Swanigan (33rd)/Mickey


1.) 27 Apr 2017 23:32:28
No from Boston. Bradley is better than Fournier, and the 2018 Brooklyn 1st has more value than Vucevic.

2.) 27 Apr 2017 23:34:33
Wow Magic did good on this 1.

3.) 28 Apr 2017 00:10:11
Seems like a bit of an overpay by boston. "Dannyboy" has to "win" every trade in his eyes to pull the trigger. No way boston goes for this.

4.) 28 Apr 2017 00:43:03
No way Boston would give up two 1 rnd picks for that.

I do like a Fournier for Bradley.

5.) 28 Apr 2017 01:02:40
Really? I don't think so.
Vucevic for Mickey, Zeller, Boston's No. 1 in 2018 and all the No. 2s you can fit in your pickup truck. You can keep Fournier.

6.) 28 Apr 2017 01:30:55
Someone is smoking something!

7.) 28 Apr 2017 07:34:42
As a Magic fan I'd say yes but if I was Boston their better off waiting with the assets they have they can go all in on trading for the best available star and using what's left of their tradable pieces to fill needs.
Vucevic rebounding does fill a need for Boston but I can't see him and Horford working well together.

8.) 28 Apr 2017 16:30:26
But on a serious note.

Replace the Nets pick with the choice of one of the 19 LAC/ MEM picks and 2 2nd rd. picks this year and no Rozier. If the Nets pick has to be involved then Boston's 18 pick has to be removed.



25 Apr 2017 14:25:40

NOLA/Brk trade
Moore, Hill, Asik, 2018 1st and 2nd rounder for RHJ, McDaniels and Boston 2nd rounder

Redick 3/48 mil
McLemore 3/20 mil
Withey 2/2 mil
Jack and Stuckey veteran minimum

Resign Holiday 4/70 mil

Draft Kaba with Boston pick

Holiday, Frazier, Jack
Redick, McLemore, Stuckey
RHJ, McDaniels, Pondexter
Davis, Diallo, Kaba
Cousins, Ajinca, Withey

You will probably say why would Brooklyn do this, I think they would do it just for the first rounder they don't have...again. NOLA becomes a contender if everyone can stay healthy, bench is weak, but it is a crushing first unit.

1.) 25 Apr 2017 14:51:23
Nola can't trade 2018 1st, already dealt 2017 to Sac.

2.) 25 Apr 2017 14:55:01
tonch -- Brooklyn does have a first rounder this year.

3.) 25 Apr 2017 15:20:28
@Triangle O so make it a 2019 first rounder, Nets will still be in a rebuilding.
@Supercollider i konw they have it, they got it from a trade that's why i said that they don't have it again.

4.) 25 Apr 2017 16:38:32
They have Boston's first, pick swap.

5.) 25 Apr 2017 17:36:16
If Nets are taking on close to 30M in salary I think they'd need more compensation than that and shouldn't have to part with RHJ or any assets. An offseason of being able to properly fit Cousins and Davis together I think will turn them into a playoff spot if not a playoff team.

6.) 25 Apr 2017 17:38:06
Nets do have a pick, Boston has the choice to swap picks, which they will.

Nets busy summer. Continuation to my last post about Blazers.

Nets/Blazers trade

Blazers pick (15th), Cavs pick (26th), Turner, Crabbe, Napier for Wizards pick (22nd), T. Booker, Lin, Whitehead and Celtics 2nd round pick (56th).

Trade Lopez, McDaniels, Acy for Bucks 1st rounder (17th), Delavedova and Henson.

Sign Ibaka 3 year 60 million ( don't think anyone will offer him more ).

Waive: Dinwiddie, Harris and Goodwin before their contracts become guaranteed.

15: Leaf
17: Adebayo
26: Dozier
27: Iwundu


Obvious goal here is to develop younger players and IMO this team won't be nearly as bad this years team.



18 May 2017 10:23:46
Portland clearing cap space.

Blazer/Nets trade

Blazers pick (15th), Cavs pick (26th), Turner, Crabbe, Napier for Wizards pick (22nd), T. Booker, Lin, Whitehead and Celtics 2nd round pick (56th).

16.4 million saved

Blezers/76ers trade

Grizzlies pick (20th) and Leonard for Mavs 2nd rounder (39th) and Hawks 2nd round pick (50th)

9.9 million saved



Blazers are just slightly over the cap here and IMO improve from last year with better backup PG and a starting PF who is bringing much energy in the paint. That 56th pick is used for draft and stash.

Nets get two players that could potentialy be leaders in their young squad and get Napier who is still young and IMO still hasn't shown what's he capable of doing, more importantly they get 1 more first rounder in this year draft and assuming that they will get one more when they trade Lopez, they will have 4 1st rounders in this years deep draft and it speeds up their rebuilding.

76ers take that horrible contract for that 1st pick that could be used for drafting some guard depth, by the time 76ers will have to resign all of theirs young talent that contract won't look su terrible or they could even unload it in a trade similar to how they acquired it.

I believe that this is a scenario where everyone has improved teams.

1.) 18 May 2017 18:07:26
If I'm Blazers I'd first try to make a move for Butler centered around McCollum and include Crabbe, Leonard (although bad contracts they are relative young so could be used to rebuild) and as many of their 3 draft picks as it takes.

If they can't make that work I'd explore options like these trades. However, I think Blazers would need to give up more in that first deal and I wouldn't want contracts like Lin or Booker back in return. Blazers are at 133 mil already and need to seriously clear cap space especially since next offseason Nurkic will be due an extension.

2.) 18 May 2017 19:28:12
Booker and Davis will be free agents after next season and Lin has a player option which he will probably decline to chase a long term deal. Those three players open up around 27 million, and when you count in salary rises from Lillard and McCollum it make around 23-4 million in cap space.

I like your idea about Butler tho.



16 May 2017 13:42:05
If Pelicans don't do good until the trade deadline next year, do you think they would trade Cousins to Celtics for only 2018 Brooklyn pick and maybe one more Celtics own first rounder lottery protected?

1.) 17 May 2017 07:28:15
It depends heavily on what other moves the Celtics make between now and then. In theory tho I think if Pelicans were in that situation and Cousins was unhappy and unlikely to resign they would need to consider dealing him since with their cap situation if he walked they wouldn't be able to restock on talent in FA.



03 Apr 2017 22:33:13
Nets offseason

Trade B. Lopez for Monroe and Bucks 1st rounder 2017.

Trade Booker, Hollis-Jefferson, Dinwiddie and Harris for Parsons and Baldwin.

Trade Goodwin and Acy for Asik.

18th Kurucs
24th Swanigan
27th Thornwell
57th Kaba



B. Lopez will be a great fit with Bucks, if everyone can stay healthy in the Bucks they could go be a scary team next season and Nets get starting center and one more 1st rounder for their rebuilding.

Memphis IMO does this in a second just to get rid of that terrible contract and they get solid bench/role players in return. Nets can apsorb Parsons contract and hope that he can stay healthy and potentially be a leader alongside Monroe and Lin to young players in the Nets franchise.

Pelicans will also do this in a flash just to get rid of the terrible contract and Nets can hope Asik turns out to be at least 50% of his prime.

Draft picks. They risk with Kurucs, can start him in D-League and if Parsons gets hurt he can start in the NBA so they can see what is he capable. In Swanigan they get their future starting PF, great rebounder and scorer and solid 3pt and FT shooter. In Thornwell i just can't understand that in all of the mock draft he is projected even lower than 27th. He could turn out to be Malcolm Brogdon type of steal at this draft. With Kaba they probably pick the best what is left and hope they hit it good.

1.) 04 Apr 2017 01:02:27
I'm not certain if Bucks would be willing to give up the first and Monroe but I think Lopez would be a good fit with the Bucks. The next two trades I think Nets should be getting back considerably more to take on two bad contracts in Parsons and Asik. Nets shouldn't have to give up Hollis-Jefferson and should be getting back much more in return for taking Parsons contract.

2.) 04 Apr 2017 01:12:55
Bucks aren't going to do that plus Monroe could be a free agent.



21 Mar 2017 21:18:15
Imagine if Jazz resigns Hayward and 76ers sign Teague or Hill. 76ers trade Bayless and Henderson for some future 2nd rounders or rights to some players.

Celtics/Jazz/76ers trade

Celtics get Gobert

Jazz gets Thomas, Okafor, Rodriguez, Covington, T. Zeller and 2018 Nets 1st round pick

76ers get Exum and 2017 Jazz 2nd rounder ( via Knicks )


Thomas/F.Jackson 26th/Rodriguez
Okafor/T.Bradley 29th/T.Zeller


Fultz 1st/Smart/Rozier
Bradley/W.Iwundu 40th/Green
Gobert/Zizic/Fusek 53rd


Teague or Hill/Exum/McConnell
Monk 5th/TLC/Stauskas
Simmons/Anderson/Beachem 39th
Saric/Oliver 37th/Long

1.) 21 Mar 2017 23:30:19
76ers also get 2018 Jazz 1st rounder, forgot to write it.

2.) 22 Mar 2017 00:36:45
Jazz say no.

3.) 22 Mar 2017 04:18:08
I can't view Jazz moving Gobert who is top defensive center in the league with his freakish length, young, signed long term and quite efficient offensively. Jazz seem keen on resigning Hill as well so I don't see the need for Thomas. They have a solid roster with good depth, I think if they were to make any moves it would be around Favors who they won't likely have the money to pay after paying Hayward and Hill and I think he isn't a great fit next to Gobert, a stretch 4 would be more natural fit.

This would be a great scenario for the Celtics who would add a young defensive anchor, that could help them with their rebounding woes and would compliment Horford well. Although giving up Thomas hurts in short term as they lose their star and go-to scorer I think Fultz has the tools to fill that role nicely in a few years and this team is built to last with Horford, Jerekbo and Green the only players over 26 on that proposed roster. One could argue that the Brooklyn 2018 pick could yield a top center prospect for a lot cheaper in what looks to be a center heavy draft class but in Gobert you get a proven difference maker that will be able to influence games from the get go.

4.) 22 Mar 2017 04:22:44
For the 76ers I don't necessarily like the idea of them overpaying for a traditional pg (Hill would be much better than Teague since he is better suited to play off-ball allowing Simmons to be at his best) . The value 76ers are getting in the trade is very good. I think if 76ers could turn Okafor into Exum they should be all over it. Exum isn't the best natural fit as his game hasn't developed that much but he has great length and athleticism, is only 21 and the Aussie connection between him and Simmons could potentially turn into something special.

And Bruno Caboclo as a starter is just laughable, he's hardly worth 2nd round pick.

If Nets are to sign any FA they will have to overpay them. So from that point if view it is not to much for gay, same goes for Ibaka. If they keep Lopez that is one solid line up in Lin/ LeVert/ Gay/ Ibaka/ Lopez.
