This only happens if by the trade deadline Sacramento is out of the playoff picture. They try to aquire some picks for this years draft.

Rockets/ Blazers/ Wizards/ Kings

Rockets get Shumpert

Blazers get Koufos

Wizards get Randolph

Kings get Knight, Leonard, Mahinmi, Rockets 1st 2019 (unprotected), Blazers 1st 2019 ( top 12 protected ), Wizards 1st 2019 (top 3 protected ), Rockets and Wizards future 2nd rounders.

Wizards pick will be around 18 (i think they will make the playoffs), Blazers around 20-22, and Rockets around 25-27. Kings could use those picks to move up in the draft and try to draft SF (Nassir Little or Sekou Doumbouya) .

I know it looks crazy but it helps all teams involved.

1.) 14 Jan 2019 16:32:45
I am totally with you and would love to have the picks for the Kings to draft Nassir Little; however, none of these trades get Houston, Washongton, or Portland below the luxury tax this season. It lowers their luxury tax bill, but I think teams would want to get below the luxury tax line for their 1st round picks.

Also, I would look at Golden State and possibly the Lakers trading down out of the first round to avoid the cap hold for the upcoming free agency.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 17:36:37
Mahimni + 2019 1st rounder for MacLemore gets Washington under the luxury cap this year and may be a high enough pick to have a shot a Nassir Little.

Charlotte may be another team to consider as well.

3.) 15 Jan 2019 03:17:51
The blazers aren't that desperate to move Lenard's contract.



07 Jan 2019 13:53:44
Rockets/ Wizards/ Hawks

Rockets get Otto Porter, Vince Carter and Jeff Green

Wizards get Kent Bazemore, Dewayne Dedmon, Carmelo Anthony, 2021 Rockets 1st

Hawks get Brandon Knight, Marquesse Chriss, Nene (buyout), Rockets 2019 1st and future 2nd, Wizards 2020 1st lottery protected

Rockets lineup

Paul/ Gordon/ MCW
Harden/ G. Green/ Rivers
Porter/ House/ Ennis
Tucker/ J. Green
Capela/ Hartenstein

Trade MCW and/ or Ennis for backup big man.

1.) 07 Jan 2019 15:42:28
Wizards get screwed hawks get too much.

2.) 08 Jan 2019 18:27:56
Why are wizards giving up a pick, for garbage?



07 Jan 2019 13:28:01
Rockets/ Bulls

Brandon Knight, Marquesse Chriss, 2nd rounder for Jabari Parker

Paul/ MCW
Harden/ Gordon
Ennis/ Green/ House
Tucker/ Parker
Capela/ Nene/ Hartenstein.

1.) 07 Jan 2019 16:03:53
So Chicago takes an extra year of Knight for a 2nd round pick? Why would they?

2.) 07 Jan 2019 16:36:07
Or they could just lose Parker for nothing, they get a pick and a guy that is still young enough and fits their timeline in Chriss. They will be a lottery team for two or three more years, so this isn't that bad.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 17:27:56
Since they aren't really playing Parker right now, I don't think they care if they lose him for nothing.

Plus, Parker has a team option for next year, so they can keep him if they want to anyway.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 17:39:57
If they can't find a deal they'll waive Parker. Multiple bench emptying games and Parker is the only guy not getting minutes. Something is definitely going into happen.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 18:26:28
The don’t lose Parker for nothing. It will open up capspace. Not to mention that teams aren’t going to take on salary for well below market value just to not lose a guy for nothing. The Rockets are struggling to move Knight with a 1st attached.

6.) 07 Jan 2019 18:52:15
The reason Houston is struggling with dealing Knight and a 1st is because they either want a talented player back or expiring contracts. They are not going to get. However, they may be able to get a salary dump into someone's cap space during the offseason for that package. That's about it.

7.) 07 Jan 2019 19:00:43
Knight could be a decent gamble by next years deadline as a trade piece? Pax said Parker was a short term gamble, why not tee up knight?



02 Jan 2019 13:40:14
Rockets/ Magic

Houston get Terence Ross

Magic get Brandon Knight and 1st rounder.

1.) 02 Jan 2019 14:12:48
Why would Orlando do this?

2.) 02 Jan 2019 15:43:37
To get a 1st for an inconsistent, highly overrated in this trade, expiring, vet contract.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 18:48:31
Btec. Knight is not expiring, nor is he playing. He is not a positive asset in anyway. It will take a 1st just to get rid of him, much less getting a useful player for him.

Adding a late 1st and a player who will make $15 million next year makes not sense for a team trying to make a playoffs.

Yes, Ross is inconsistent, but he is a key player for Orlando this year.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 19:25:49
Ross expiring and inconsistent. This is by far the best season he has ever had. I don't align with Orlando making the playoffs either. My comments really have nothing to do with knight or whether HOU would have to trade a 1st to offload knight. Straight out with no salary return, definitely. For Ross? I wouldn't. Regardless of what the pros are for a guy who would play behind Gordon, Green likely.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 19:31:42
Orlando shouldn't trade him if he is a "key" player because they won't get equal compensation if he's as valuable to them as you say.



24 Dec 2018 15:33:41
Atlanta/ Houston/ Milwaukee

Atlanta get Knight, Chriss, Smith, Rockets 1st rounder (top 10 protected), Rockets 2nd, Bucks 2nd

Houston get Bazemore and Carter

Milwaukee get Dedmon.

1.) 24 Dec 2018 16:32:57
It's a pretty good trade. Smith and the 2nd is a little light for Dedmon probably. I'd do it though, the Hawks aren't finished drafting just yet.

What do you think of this Wizards lineup now that Wall is done for the season.

Bryant/ Howard

I have a feeling that Wall's injury will be the best thing that could happen to Wizards.

1.) 30 Dec 2018 06:35:30
I wondered how the Ariza Porter situation was going to work. I'd experiment a little if Wall is going to be out. I don't know if I'd change the lineup if they put a few together before Porter is back? It looks pretty good though, and leaves Green and Sat on the 2nd unit.

2.) 30 Dec 2018 16:18:09
I think porter, morris and ariza will all have new uniforms very soon.

3.) 31 Dec 2018 18:59:25
If Wall was expiring this year and they were considering giving him a supermax, his injury might be the best thing that happened to them. But going into the offseason that his supermax kicks in, starting horrible then missing the rest of the season might be the absolute worst case scenario for Washington.



12 Jul 2018 19:36:15
Celtics should sign Vonleh to a minimum deal, he is great rebounder, brings energy and still young enough to adapt to Celtics system.

1.) 12 Jul 2018 20:18:55
He would be good. Yabouselle and he can compete for time.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 01:48:14
LOL, you want the homeboy back in MA. I was honestly in Haverhill about 4 hrs. ago. there's 2 roster space available but he's not on the menu.

Wonder how long the Smart saga will go on? If he wanted to stay with the C's he should have signed that 4/ 45 they offer last year. 6ers have the cap space to go higher. That would suck!

3.) 13 Jul 2018 18:42:45
Look out for kings, bulls on the smart horizon.



07 May 2018 07:07:02
If someone like Dallas, who are desperate for a center, throws a max offer sheet to Capela, will Rockets match it? Personally I think not if they want to resign Paul and have a shot at LBJ.

1.) 07 May 2018 09:44:00
They match. They probably expect it.



15 Mar 2018 17:17:00
My predictions for western conference

1. Houston 67-15
2. GSW 64-18
3. Portland 52-30
4. Minnesota 49-33
5. New Orleans 49-33
6. Utah 48-34
7. San Antonio 48-34
8. Oklahoma 47-35

9. Denver 43-39
10. LAC 42-40

1.) 15 Mar 2018 18:50:04
Agree with the teams, but positioning might dance a bit. OKC is a tough call, they have been playing really well since Brewer acquisition.

2.) 15 Mar 2018 21:46:22



14 Mar 2018 22:52:24
Is something like this even possible:

Wall to Spurs for Gasol, Mills, Murray, 2 future 1st rounders and a 2nd rounder


1.) 15 Mar 2018 15:01:35
Wall wasn't playing his best year, but the Wizards can get a better deal.

You can't trade more than one player in a sign and trade deal.

So Hardaway will get you an expiring contract and a 1st rounder? Yeah right.

In what world does 2 expiring contracts and a 2nd rounder get you Courtney Lee who still has 2 years on his contract and plays like 10 mins per game. NYK should be giving a pick in that case.
