If AD is traded to NYK or BOS

LAC should target Holiday


LAC get Jrue Holiday

NOP get Jerome Robinson, Derrick Favors (exp), 2 1st round picks from LAC, 2nd round pick UTA

UTA get Danilo Gallinari

Before anyone say that UTA will say no, remember that it's hard for UTA to sign anyone. Their weakness is offense, Gallo would give them that help. NOP could get another asset for Favors.

LAC sign Kawhi max
Sign Boogie 2yrs/26mil with P.O

Resign their FA's

Pg Shai/Beverley
Sg Holiday/Williams
Sf Kawhi/Shamet
Pf Green/Harrell
Ce Cousins/Zubac

1.) 19 May 2019 15:30:00
NOP love Jrue Holiday. They would want to the Miami pick if they are trading him to clippers. I doubt deal would get done without it included.

2.) 19 May 2019 17:13:07
Clippers need to trade for/ sign center and pf without loosing current core
Aldridge/ Horford and Vucevic/ Cousins/ Jordan.

3.) 19 May 2019 17:36:53
I don't think that Horford wants to leave Boston, I think the Celtics feel the same.

4.) 19 May 2019 18:04:06
Shamet a Sf 😏.

5.) 19 May 2019 22:40:19
Shiz position doesn't matter in the NBA today, they are actually playing Shamet or Shai at SF. They are playing with bev shamet and shai together or lou will.



19 May 2019 09:58:31
I think the best deals for Davis are

From BOS: Tatum, Brown & multiple first

From NYK: 3rd, multiple other 1st, robinson, smith Jr, Knox

From CHI: Lauri, Lavine, 7th pick, another 1st

1.) 19 May 2019 17:16:03
He told boston he won't resign. Boston would be making a huge mistake.

2.) 19 May 2019 17:40:12
Where and when did Davis say he wouldn't resign in Boston? Maybe In Your nightmares. But, those words have never come from his mouth. Lol.



19 May 2019 07:22:15

NYK get Davis

NOLA get 4 picks including this year, Robinson, Knox, Smith Jr & Thomas

NOLA may send Knox or Smith to other team if they want more picks

NYK go after Durant & Kyrie as everyone in here is talking especially NY fans.

NYK send Ntilikina somewhere for a 2nd

Sign Reddick for full MLE
Resign Deandre Jordan

Sign vets like Wilson chandler, Pachulia or whoever for back up

Pg Irving/Mudiay
Sg Reddick/Trier
Sf Durant/Chandler
Pf Davis
Ce Jordan/Pachulia

1.) 19 May 2019 17:18:26
I don't think knicks add Reddick bc of Noah 6.5 mil.



19 May 2019 07:09:54

UTA get Warren

LAL get Favors & UTA 1st

PHX get Ball

1.) 19 May 2019 14:39:31
Ball is hurt can't shot and not worth a first.



18 May 2019 06:55:39

CHI get Ben Simmons
Sign Terrence Ross

Pg Simmons
Sg LaVine
Sf Ross
Pf Porter
Ce Markannen

PHI get Kris Dunn, Brandon Ingram & 4th pick

Pg Ingram/Dunn
Sg Culver
Sf Butler
Pf Harris
Ce Embiid

LAL get Wendell Carter & 7th pick

Pg Ball
Sg Reddish/Hart
Sf James
Pf Kuzma
Ce Carter

1.) 18 May 2019 14:57:09
If this happened wpuldnt Sixers draft Garland or white to have a pg.

If you are a team in need of a sniper, would you rather sign Jj Redick or trade for Eric Gordon if he is available? What's their worth?

1.) 14 May 2019 12:39:37
If all you need is a sniper and that's all that you are worried about Redick for sure. He is the better 3pt shooter. Gordon shot .360 this year and .374 over his career. Redick shot .397 this year and .413 for his career. And Gordon is a streakier shooter than Redick. Gordon can play better defense than Redick and is 3 years younger than Redick. Also a team doesn't have to give anything up if they are able to sign Redick they have to give something up in a trade for Gordon. So of you just need a 3pt sniper for me the answer is easily sign Redick.

2.) 14 May 2019 13:59:47
Depends if your team has the cap space to sign Reddick?

3.) 14 May 2019 16:03:36
Barring an insulting offer from the Sixers, he's staying with them.



09 May 2019 22:27:30
A question, do you think a 2 guard line up of Ball-Walker or Ball-Irving or someone else could work for Lakers? This is purely because of Ball's defensive ability and the scoring of those guards like Rubio/Mitchell combo?

1.) 10 May 2019 00:14:12
Yeh because ball has size to guard a st. Just like they both will work with simmons.

2.) 10 May 2019 02:18:03
With Ball’s inability to shoot doesn’t make it ideal, but it doesn’t not work.

3.) 10 May 2019 03:46:17
See roberson-westbrook.

4.) 10 May 2019 05:32:51
I think Ball/ Walker would be a really good duo. Both good passers. Walker is a great shooter that makes up for Ball’s lack of shooting. Ball’s defense covers Walker’s deficiency there. They’re both good with and without the ball. Very similar to Utah’s duo.

5.) 11 May 2019 05:32:20
Ball is solid 30 games a year. Why do laker fans not just admit the bust and move on?

6.) 11 May 2019 15:42:35
Because he isn’t solid for 30 games a year. He only plays 50 games a year. And of those maybe a quarter are good. He is a flat out bust. But then again. Certain lakers fans feel like Ingram is a superstar, Hart is a lethal 3 and d and kuzma is already an all star. Not worth discussing.

7.) 11 May 2019 20:45:41
Ball is a solid NBA player. I think his future is PG version of Aminu. That’s not a horrible thing. Don’t give up on a guy that’s a decent rotational player. Also, don’t expect that guy to become a superstar.

8.) 11 May 2019 22:06:14
He was picked second overall. SECOND. To say he isn’t a superstar. He isn’t a star. He’s essentially a rotational player. SECOND. That’s epic bust.

9.) 11 May 2019 23:27:13
Ball was never going to be a scorer in the NBA. He’s a great defender and passer. Hopefully he can at least improve his scoring around the rim and spot up shooting.

10.) 11 May 2019 23:27:37
Its a horrible thing, BMiller, if you are the #2 pick in the draft. And this is coming from Kings fab so I know all about drafting busts.

11.) 12 May 2019 01:02:56
You are bashing the kid because he was picked 2nd overall and not performing like one. It’s not his fault, it’s the front office for picking him. So what are we going to do? Lakers try use him, you are bashing, if we trade him here, same thing. What can we do to the kid?

12.) 12 May 2019 03:35:19
Most stars aren't an all stars in second year. Like butler and George but now there top 15 players with George top ten.

13.) 12 May 2019 13:52:31
Personally, I am not "bashing" him. All I am saying is that the expectations were high for Ball because he was the #2 pick and he hasn't lived up to it. Is it his fault? Who knows? Is it Fox or Mitchell's fault that they have developed faster than Ball? I don't know. Maybe Ball puts it all together this summer. All I do know is if he remains the same, Ball will be squarely in the Markelle Fultz category and have a similar trade value.

14.) 12 May 2019 14:29:02
Theoretically, if he ends up being more athletic Ricky Rubio on offense and on defense, he’s longer Marcus Smart is that a bust? Like that’s probably not an allstar caliber player, but an all nba defender that can run your 2nd team offense isn’t anything to sneeze at. He probably has the lowest ceiling out of him, Kuz, and Ingram, but he also has the highest floor. Ingram needs to be on the ball to be an effective offensive player and is a middling defender at this point. He could be a star or he could early career Rudy Gay that points up empty stats and doesn’t help his team win. Kuzma is a legit scorer, but his lack of defense could really limit the amount of time he can spend on the floor in the playoffs.

15.) 12 May 2019 23:28:14
Butler and George are entirely different players and styles. The comparison makes no sense.

Also, neither was picked number 2 overall. It wasn’t his fault that he was picked second, but that doesn’t negate him being a bust for that slot. Simple as that. Top 3 picks need to be franchise pieces, otherwise it’s a bust. Simple as that.

16.) 13 May 2019 04:46:06
Comparisons are for fan and journalist “what if” fodder, not for how the front office should approach the player’s future.

And his trade value being low is a reason to keep him, not cut bait. Don’t ever sell at the absolute lowest point.

He’s still one of the 5 best players on that team. He’s still trending to a solid role player. Embrace what you have and build for the future.

17.) 13 May 2019 07:54:56
The point about Butler and George is they both became all stars by developing not there first two years.



07 May 2019 07:03:53
Who are the top 5 best and worst untradeable contract/players today?



1.) 07 May 2019 15:29:46
Lebron was not top 5 this year either. Kawhi and Embiid were better than him.

2.) 07 May 2019 19:19:33
Giannis, Curry, Harden, Durant, Leonard, Lillard are the top tier to me. I don't care if it's 6, they're all in a tier together.

Westbrook is inching towards the toxic group. His mentality will never change, even if his effectiveness dips. That's a dangerous combination. It's what happened to Melo.

But your top 5 is probably right. I feel bad for Wall and Hayward, because it was all due to injury. I still have some hope for Hayward to come back to being a legit 3rd option. Not worth his max deal, but not too far off either.

3.) 07 May 2019 21:37:34
Smunro, you are assuming Embiid has perfect health. Jokic>Embiid mainly because I know Jokic will be on the court 82+ games.



02 May 2019 06:46:49
When are we going to see these teams rise consistently?

PHX- they have a core of young talents but just can't seem to find formula to win
SAC- they have one of more talented backcourts
MIN- Towns
MEM- only JJJ looks bright and Conley is old

LAL and LAC have the better chance for FA's but if you are going to choose a star or 2 to carry those teams above who will fit them?

1.) 02 May 2019 12:52:04
PHX- when they draft morrant they will have great young core, but i still don't see them making playoffs until they have a coach for more than 1 year. they need a consistent coach. They have been going through way to many coaches and young players need a consistent coach to develop better they have a different person telling then something different every year.

SAC- i think they will make playoffs next year. They add another lottery pick this year and maybe a couple cheap free agents to round out the team. They showed a lot of potential this year and should improve this off season.

MIN- i think with Towns it is just mind set and effort. He has great talent and is a beast on the glass and offense but he doesn't play great defense and just doesn't seem to have a winning drive. that's 1 reason why Butler wanted out the young guys there don't have a very good drive to win.

MEM- I think it may be 2 or 3 years of they play their cards right. JJJ is a great young talent and they need to put more young talent around him. Conley isn't prime Conley but he is still good if he can stay healthy. I wouldn't be surprised to see Conley traded this off season. I think Grizzlies have been trying to push it off but i think the Gasol trade was the sign they are finally accepting its rebuild time.

LAL- depends on how things play out up stairs who gets what job and how well they operate things. And also if they get another big FA or make a trade to bring in another all star. If They add an all star or 2 and hire the right people they will make playoffs next year.

LAC- i'm excited to see who the Clippers get this off season i think they look better right now to FA than Lakers. Kawhi or Kd would be first choice but if they miss out there Butler would be a good fit They play tough, aggressive, and energetic Butler would fit there.

2.) 02 May 2019 13:38:11
Sac doesn't have a lottery pick this year to add. However, they do have a max salary slot so if they can sell a Kevin Durant or Jimmy Butler, then they will really have something for years to come.



30 Apr 2019 04:15:33
Do you guys think this is the Warriors' last of their dynasty?

1.) 30 Apr 2019 11:54:49
I hope Clay leaves. I would live to see him as a number one option to see how he does.

2.) 30 Apr 2019 13:16:33
If not this year then next year for sure unless they decide its worth going way into luxury tax to keep them together but between this year and next i see 1 or 2 of them leaving not including cousins that's 1 or 2 of green, Durant, Thompson, Curry.

3.) 30 Apr 2019 17:07:57
I think Durant walks, Klay resigns, and Green extends or resigns next year. The Curry/ Thompson/ Green trio seems like a tight group who's chemistry is strained by the presence of Durant. They won't be as good next year, but they'll still likely be one of the best teams in the league.

4.) 30 Apr 2019 18:44:26
Durant looks to be gone. They’ll still be good with Klay, Steph, and Draymond, but it’s hard to figure out how they can replace Durant or rebuild their depleted bench. They really haven’t had much success developing young guys around their core. They have all of their picks, but unless they want to move Draymond (I think that might hurt their chances of resigning Klay), it’s hard to put enough salary on the table to get veterans back with it.

5.) 01 May 2019 01:09:54
Dont underestmate the impact if Iggy decides to call it a career as well.
