BUCKS receive Dwyane Wade and Robin Lopez

Giannis/Brogdon/Payton II

BULLS receive Greg Monroe, Alec Burks, Matthew Dellavedova, Kyle Anderson, Davis Bertans, Bucks 2018 1st rounder, Jazz 2019 2nd rounder

-sign Festus Ezeli 2 year minimum


SPURS receive Derrick Favors and John Henson, 2018 Jazz 1st rounder

-sign Tiago Splitter 1 year minimum


JAZZ receive LaMarcus Aldridge, Jerian Grant and Paul Zipser


Bucks get winning mentality with the adittion of Wade and get under the luxury tax.
Bulls get rid of two players that don't belong in their future plans get a solid return and some picks to help in the rebuild.
Spurs get two big guys focused on defense and get rid of LMA who underperformed in SAS jersey.
Jazz pair great offensive big with great defensive big, potentially a great combo.

1.) 26 Jul 2017 18:08:40
Really, really bad for Bucks.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 02:41:43
Bucks ain't doing this.



03 Jul 2017 10:20:23

Danilo Galinari (s&t 3 year 66 million) for DeMarre Carroll and Cory Joseph.



01 Jul 2017 08:52:39
Bulls are clearly rebuilding. I just can't see Wade being with the team for another year so I came up with a trade that could benefit both teams.


Wade for Solomon Hill, Omer Asik and 2019 1st round pick (top 3 protected).

Pelicans create the "big three" and are becoming a playoff team. Priority would be to get shooters around those 3 guys. They would still have around 14 million free cap space, sign few veteran FA and using the exceptions could create a solid rotation for a playoff push. Also they don't resign Holiday.

Bulls get a young player on a bad contract (maybe just needs a change of scenery) and an even worts contract in Asik (his contract will be gone by the time Bulls need to resing all of the young assets). And most importantly they get a pick that could turn out to be lottery pick if things don't go the right way for the Pels.


Sign Bojan Bogdanovic 3 year 30 million.
Jerebko 2 year 6 million
Meeks, Calderon, Dunleavy, J. Hill for veteran minimum.

Jor. Crawford/Calderon/F. Jackson
Cousins/Ajinca/J. Hill



28 Jun 2017 22:55:15
Rockets becoming a clear contender.

Trade Ryan Anderson and 2020 1st rounder for Paul Millsap (s&t)

Resign Nene 2y/8 million

Darren Collison using mid level exception
Ersan Ilyasova using bi annual exception
Luke Babbit, Jodie Meeks, Jose Calderon, Anthony Tolliver and Mike Dunleavy to veteran minimum contracts.

All free agents are great 3 point shooters and will fit great to D'Antoni's run and gun style.

Depth chart:


1.) 29 Jun 2017 03:31:19
I think Millsap is a much more realistic option than George and would be a great fit. I'm not sure how salary would work out but I think that would be a solid team that would put them at 2nd or 3rd in West and within striking distance to at least make things interesting between them and Warriors (maybe a few more perimeter defenders) .



19 Jun 2017 10:51:23

1. #36 and #50 to Phoenix for #32
2. Trade Okafor and Stauskas for Asik and 2021 1st rounder top 10 protected. (Philly gets rid of two players that IMO are not part of the Process absorbs Asik contract that will be gone by the time Simmons, Saric and Fultz get paid)

Waive Henderson and Long

1. Fultz
32. Swanigan
39. Thornwell
46. Lessort

Sign Reddick 2 year 50 million


Young and uber talented team with Reddick as the veteran leader, around 2020 if everyone stay healthy will be a contender and by 2025 should have a championship.

1.) 19 Jun 2017 18:57:21
I don't want asik. I'd rather keep okafor for that junk of a deal.

"the Cavaliers want a veteran starter, a blue chipper on a rookie contract and a first-round pick for the superstar PG"

This is what Cavs are asking for according to "sources".

Irving is young, so he clearly fits Phoenix and their timetable. I have an idea I haven't seen before here.

Irving for Bledsoe, Chriss and Suns own 2018 1st rounder.

Cavs get a starting PG, rookie with a huge upside and lottery pick probably (cant see Suns making playoffs, yet).

Personally I like Chriss, but I like Bender more as he could turn out to be almost the same player as Porzingis, but he needs to get regular playing time to develop.


Jackson/Warren/Jones Jr.

1.) 01 Aug 2017 12:41:36
You like Chriss so much that you forgot to put him on the Cavs roster?

2.) 01 Aug 2017 13:08:07
Lol, my bad. he wqs supposed to be behind Love.

3.) 01 Aug 2017 15:07:49
It's not terrible. Maybe add Chandler or Dudley. I think the Cavs might hold out for one of their young players though.

4.) 01 Aug 2017 19:38:26
I think it works for both sides. Cavs get what they are looking for. Chriss isn't Jackson or Booker but I think he is their next best prospect and not as likely to be a bust as Bender but he does have a slightly lower ceiling. Chriss having started 75 games for Suns however, should be able to come in and contribute for Cavs at least 15-20 mins per game right away. He has only been playing basketball for 6 years so he has plenty of untapped potential, just turned 20, is a very good athlete and has shown range out to 3pt line. The Suns pick will likely have to be protected (top 3 or top 5) for Suns to include it since they would much rather include the Miami pick.

I think Cavs adding someone like Frye to the deal for Dudley is mutually beneficial since it helps Suns clear salary with expiring deal and Cavs get another role player.

5.) 01 Aug 2017 21:29:30
Their better young players*.

6.) 03 Aug 2017 07:13:11
What the Cavs want is far above what the Cavs will get.

It is not surprising that they have to look back to the 2011 Melo trade, because for the last seven years, the market has shown repeatedly that stars only bring back 75 cents on the dollar. It has been even less recently with Jimmy Butler and Boogie, because win-now stars are in even less demand with GSW blocking playoff ambitions.

Moreover, it should be even lower with Kyrie demanding a trade, his naming four teams (alienating 25), weird lack of loyalty to CLE (will he want to stay with any team that trades for him? ), injury concerns, timing this after teams have spent free agent money, and filled their PG positions, constraints on a trade from LeBron, the repeater tax, and a brand new GM.

I really hope for Cavs fans' sake that they can get two teams to bid against each other, because history makes it very unlikely they are going to get 2011 levels of trade assets.

Houston gets Carmelo Anthony and Joe Harris


New York gets Solomon Hill, Jeremy Lin, Andrew Nicholson, Shawn Long, Isaiah Hartenstein, 2020 Houston 1st round pick, 2022 NOLA protected 1st round pick, 2019 NOLA 2nd round pick and 2020 Houston 2nd round pick

Hardaway Jr./Vujacic/Dotson

New Orleans gets Courtney Lee, Trevor Booker, Lance Thomas, Kyle O'Quinn and Tim Quarterman(waive)


Brooklyn gets Ryan Anderson, Etwaun Moore, Alexis Ajinca, Chinanu Onuaku, 2020 NOLA protected 1st round pick, 2019 Houston 2nd round pick, 2022 Houston 2nd round pick


So, Houston gets what they want.

New York with this trade has a nice young core and Lin to help develop Ntilikina. Focus here is to develop young players and wait for the oportunity in the future.

NOLA is the winner with this trade IMO, they become contenders, have a deep team, SF is clearly an issue but the balance of attack and defense here should make it work.

Brooklyn gets deeper frontcourt something they are lacking and get bunch of picks for the rebuild (they won't be much better by the time they get to use those picks).

Just when I thought Kings went the right direction they sign George Hill and Zach Randolph to waste precious minutes of De'Aaron Fox, Frank Mason, Skal Labissiere and Harry Giles.

Also cannot believe that no one offered more to Hill. He could've compete if he signed for Nuggets (Hill, Harris, Chandler, Millsap, Jokic with Barton as 6th man would be top 6 team in the West).

1.) 05 Jul 2017 09:20:50
Possibly understand Randolph to take some of the heat off the young bigs but not the GEORGE hill contract.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 12:00:52
It would've been hard for Denver to upload Faried and Aurther contracts. Hill will show Fox how to run the team, when to slow it down. Competition in practice with Z Bo will make the other bigs better.

3.) 05 Jul 2017 12:21:37
I like the signings from the Kings. They can be bad this year and the veterans will not make a big difference for their record. Next year they need to start winning because they owe their first to Philly or Celtics. Adding Hill is a good move and they can move him and his contract easily for other pieces if it doesn't work.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 20:15:30
While I don't think the moves were the best they aren't the head scratchingly bad moves we are used to for the Kings. Both guys are strong character veterans that can bring about much needed change of culture to that lockeroom. I think its important that they got guys of this caliber who can still play big minutes since it gives them more authority than a broken down old guy who plays 10 mins per game trying to tell a bunch of young guys what to do without being able to show them. Both guys can likely start if needed and if Fox really kills it out of the gate Hill is able to play off-ball very well. The years of the contracts weren't bad so these moves won't cripple them in the future either.

It may hurt Kings a little bit by getting them a few more wins but I think its worth it for the impact these two guys will have on the bunch of young guys they already have and they'll still be among worst teams in the league especially since they are in the western conference.



23 Jun 2017 08:23:33
Great draft by the Kings. Finally they drafted smart. Traded away #10 when Isaac and Markkanen were gone and they had no need for Monk. Fox clearly a starter, Jackson not so sure but should see big minutes in his first year already, Giles is a gamble but was probably the best player if not for the injuries, Mason perfect backup PG. Maybe brighter years are to come for the Kings.

1.) 23 Jun 2017 13:12:15
I felt Kings were positioned nicely with #5 and #10 since they were both kind of the last picks before a drop in talent in next tier of prospects. At #10 I probably would've taken Monk as the best player available and since Kings backcourt is lacking (Monk could've played 6th man combo guard role getting minutes at both guard spots) . However, I think trading back wasn't a bad move either. I think they did a good job of balancing Jackson who seems to be a fairly low-risk player with Giles who is a high-risk, high-reward player. I would've liked them to possibly get OG Anunoby who is a lotto-level talent who defensively could've been a rock for that team. Overall tho it was a very logical draft for the Kings and overall their outlook is looking a lot better than it did a year ago with Cousins. I think having a character like that as you best player is draining to a franchise and moving him was certainly an addition by subtraction.

2.) 23 Jun 2017 16:18:47
Kings also got College Basketball Player of the year Frank Mason in the 2nd round. If he was a few inches taller and a little younger he'd probably be top player in this draft class. He is a winner and tough competitor and could be an offensive force after shooting an unreal 47% on over 5 3s per game in college. Hopefully Kings learned their lessen with IT and will keep Mason around since he may not be IT but he should have a solid career.

3.) 23 Jun 2017 19:38:50
Lol. Like luke harongody. Or Tyler hansborough? He's second round for a reason. Let's not over sensationalize here.

4.) 23 Jun 2017 19:41:36
McDermott. Hield. Fredette. Kaminsky. Turner. Burke. These are recent players of the year. COllege most definitely does not translate to NBA. At least not in a clear direct way.



20 Jun 2017 23:56:14
After the Russell/Lopez trade i think it's pretty obvious that Clarkson, Randle, #27, #28 will be offered to get Paul George.

1.) 21 Jun 2017 01:02:13
How do they dump Deng's contract, if that's the offer.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 01:31:46
The fact that Lakers gave up that much to dump Mozgov makes me think they intend to keep Lopez. As an expiring contract and Cali native he probably would've been interested in resigning with LA next summer and Lakers dealing for him now in a vacuum doesn't help them that much (his cap hold would be over 33 mill so it wouldn't give them any additional flexibility;

in fact could hurt if he delays signing since doubt he gets that much) . For this reason I think they went ahead and got Lopez since they also plan on getting George this season so that they can assess what that team looks like and can fill the holes next offseason in addition to signing both longterm (assuming they play well together) .

Clarkson, Randle, #27 and #28 I think would be a competitive offer for George and would help Lakers save cap space with Clarkson's contract and on Randle who is an expiring contract. The only concern is they'd be essentially stuck with Deng's contract which is worse than Mozgov's unless a team will take it for a future pick (unlikely given Lakers trajectory) .

You should probably add 2 unprotected 1st rounders to Minnesota, nobody is taking Noah without it.

Why would Kings improve SG? They already have Hield, Temple, Bogdanovic and Richardson.

I think Pels would rather keep Hill and stretch Asik themselves.

Both Knicks and Grizzlies have to include at least one 1st rounder to move Noah or Parsons.

Houston 2018 1st rounder is with the Hawks. And I don't think Ariza is going to be part of Carmelo trade.
