Bulls/ Pelicans/ Mavericks

Bulls get S. Hill, Asik, McRoberts, 2019 lottery protected 1st rounder and 2022 swap option from Pelicans (a 2nd rounder also from Pels)

Pelicans Justin Holiday and Mejri

Mavericks get R. Lopez

Bulls hit cap floor and take bad contracts for picks. Pelicans clear cap space for DMC's resigning. Mavs get center which they clearly need.



13 Nov 2017 19:25:21
Mavs/ Lakers

Mavs get Deng, Randle, Zubac, Hart, 2020 Lakers 1st rounder (top 5 protected) and Nuggets 2018 2nd rounder

Lakers get McRoberts, Harris and Mejri.

Lakers/ Pelicans

Lakers get Asik and Ajinca.

Pelicans get Deng and Zubac.

Lakers get 2 shorter contracts than Deng's and clear around 5 million of the books for free agency. They could even stretch waive Asik or medically waive him since he was diagnosed with Chron's disease.

Pelicans get much needed wing depth and a young prospect in Zubac to be DMC' backup.

1.) 05 Nov 2017 19:03:48
Deng doesn't provide wing depth - he's done.

2.) 05 Nov 2017 20:44:48
He is done why exactly? Was it his fault that Lakers offered him all that money 14 months ago? Lakers made him look like one of the worst players in the league and now they don't even play him because they don't want him. If I was at his place I would happily sit on the Lakers bench and would be screwing their free agency plans until my contract would be done.

And one more thing, if not for his contract he would probably be playing for a contender now for veterans minimum, because he can still ball and provide solid depth and veteran leadership.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 01:26:23
He is a way better version of Richard Jefferson and Jefferson was playing decent last year for the Cavs.

4.) 06 Nov 2017 15:25:09
It's a battle of bad contracts. If i am the Pels i don't do deal.

Phoenix/ Detroit/ Denver

Phoenix gets Drummond and Mudiay

Detroit gets Bledsoe, T. Chandler, Faried and 2nd round pick from Phoenix

Denver gets Jackson and 2nd round pick from Detroit


Mudiay/ Ulis/ James
Booker/ Daniels/ Knight
Warren/ Jackson/ Jones Jr.
Chriss/ Bender/ Dudley
Drummond/ Len/ Williams


Bledsoe/ Smith/ Galloway
Bradley/ Kennard/ Bullock
Johnson/ Leuer/ Tolliver
Harris/ Faried/ Ellenson
Chandler/ Marjanovic/ Moreland


Murray/ Jackson
Harris/ Barton/ Beasley
Chandler/ Hernangomez/ Jefferson
Millsap/ Lyles/ Lydon
Jokic/ Plumlee/ Arthur.

1.) 03 Nov 2017 10:00:22
Detroit gets screwed.

Why would they trade Drummond.

2.) 03 Nov 2017 13:01:15
PHX is the only one to accept this.

3.) 03 Nov 2017 13:44:41
No way Denver does this. Or Detroit for that matter.



02 Nov 2017 10:59:55
Lakers/ Bulls/ Hawks

Lakers get Bellineli and Delaney

Bulls get Deng, Zubac, Dorsey and two 2nd round picks from Lakers

Hawks get R. Lopez

Lakers get away from Deng and receive two expiring contracts.

Bulls get back a guy that was all star while playing for them and receive a young prospect in Zubac who could get in to the starting line up right away and help them tank while developing his skills.

Hawks receive a center that could be a mentor for Collins and once Hawks rebuilding is over will be of their payroll.

Who rejects?

1.) 02 Nov 2017 11:28:14
Hawks are in rebuild mode, why would they take on a longer term veteran contract without getting a pick or young asset back? In this deal, you actually have them giving up the young asset. This makes so sense for Atlanta.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 13:13:46
Swap robin Lopez with Grant or Portis and Pondexter.

With Griffin likely sidelined for at least 4-5 weeks, should Clippers go full tank mode?
Trade DeAndre for the best offer available (young assett or top 15 pick if possible) and miss playoffs so they don't lose pick to Celtics should be priorities IMO.



24 Oct 2017 06:50:42
Why do you guys think that Suns will trade Bledsoe for someone like Robin Lopez, Enes Kanter, Matthew Dellavedova and so on. Isn't it logical to look for younger players. And they would clearly want a PG in return as neither Ulis or James are starting caliber players.
Nuggets and Bucks could make a nice package centered around Mudiay or Brogdon.
Knicks are also being mentioned but it would be foolish from them to give Ntilikina away, but hey it's the Knicks you just never know with them.

1.) 24 Oct 2017 15:04:27
It would be awesome if the Bucks got Bledsoe but Antetekounmpo, Maker, Brogdon are untouchable.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 15:39:55
I agree that there is no way an older player will be the focal point of a Bledsoe trade and that the only way the Suns are going to be willing to take a bad contract is if they are compensated for Bledsoe and taking on the contract, but I disagree that a pg has to be involved. The Suns are going to take the best package of young assets and if there are two offers close and one has a pg but the other doesn't it might be the deciding factor, but with where the Suns are at I doubt there has to be a pg involved. Right now their goal should be to stock pile young talent and figure out the rest in a few years.

3.) 25 Oct 2017 08:33:34
Also, Mancerei, I highly doubt Brogdan and Maker are untouchable. That word seems to be used in the loosest possible terms on this site. If the Bucks could get something like Chandler and Bledsoe for Maker, Delly and filler; they would do it in a heartbeat.

4.) 25 Oct 2017 15:59:00
Robin Lopez and Jerian Grant and Nikola Mirotic seems he’s ignoring bulls so trade him to the suns for Tyson Chandler last run vet help his team that started his career a feel good story and Eric Bledso plus in the offseason bulls could have top pick and a lot of cap space just a thought?

5.) 25 Oct 2017 18:08:43
@rkenne why would the bucks be so urgent to get chandler at maker’s expense. i don't see it.

6.) 26 Oct 2017 12:19:22
Maker would need to be included to get Bledsoe. Chandler is a throw in yo replace his minutes.



23 Sep 2017 19:13:52
Knicks being Knicks once again. They didn't want to take Andersons contract but they took Kanters. At PF they only have Porzingis and at C they have Willy and one of the best back up bigs in O'Quinn. Hornacek said today that they will play at higher pace, imagine frontcourt of Anderson and Porzingis in fast paced style game, deadly.

1.) 23 Sep 2017 21:41:21
The league need to force Dolan to sell the team.



01 Aug 2017 12:04:39
"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).

Hezonja instead of Ross to Memphis. Its obvious that Magic don't have Hezonja in future plans.
