NOLA/ATL/BOS

NOLA get 3 BOS 1st round picks, Tatum & Bazemore (exp)

ATL get Hayward & MEM 1st

BOS get Davis & Prince

18 Apr 2019 07:11:39
I like it for atlanta and Boston. Atlanta takes on additional salary for a pick and this also gives Hayward a fresh start in a system where he'd get more opportunities. Boston gets their coveted prize (AD) and a solid fill in 3 and d guy still on a rookie deal. I'm on the fence about it for NOLA. The Boston picks don't project very highly so NOLA should look around for better offers. If there's nothing else out there thougg they might have to take it.

15 Apr 2019 01:02:02
Crazy scenario for Boston.

Imagine Boston gets the #2 pick vua Sacramento. This jump in the lottery make the Grizzlies pick convey this year as well.

With their 4 picks, Boston drafts Ja Morant, Bol Bol, Edwards from Purdue and Williams from Tennessee.

Let Irving walk this year and Horford next year. Resign Rozier at the same number as Smart. Tell New Orleans to pound sand about trading for AD.

15 Apr 2019 10:09:10
Yup, that's crazy. Problem is, Ainge isn't crazy. He's pretty damned smart and he wants AD. He will probably get AD.
The other issue I have with this, is they are a championship driven team. They could or would not have 4 rookies on that team. If they were a lottery team, I might see This, but they are not.
Why would they rebuild now, when they could be close to winning #18?

15 Apr 2019 15:01:05
I don't think Ainge would draft Bol, unless it was too good to pass up. Proven players are still worth more than draft picks. ZW is garnering hype, and maybe he is the next James, but that's at least a few seasons away, AD is gift wrapped, ready to go.

15 Apr 2019 15:02:09
it wouldn't be so much a rebuild as a retool, and I've thought about this as well. I like AD a lot, but it really depends on how much they want for him and if they think he will actually stick around.

Either way, the trade for AD and the decision on Kyrie can't happen until after the draft, and I really doubt that NO would want anyone other than Morant at #2, so you have time to think. Ja could easily be the best player to come out of this draft, and with him already in tow, they have a lot of bargaining power on what else goes to NO. If Griffin is stubborn on wanting too much, DA should feel comfortable moving forward.

The ideal would be if Memphis' pick wound up at 4. That would give them someone worthwhile, but probably not an immediate impact like the top two or three guys should have. I don't think I would take Bol at 9 anyway. I'm looking at him with that Clippers pick being a good gamble, but 9 is a bit too high for my taste.

15 Apr 2019 15:03:13
Many reasons why JoeB, including that they do not look like a serious Championship contender right now, don’t have any control whether Kyrie comes back or not, and understand that with no Kyrie, AD is unlikely to re-sign there after next season.

I will give Ainge something, he is smart. If he goes into this offseason with the feeling that Kyrie could walk, and can’t close an AD deal that possibly will convince Irving to stay, I could see a mini reset.

15 Apr 2019 18:24:05
The best part is that they have the assets to keep retooling as is. They've actually played very well when Kyrie sits, despite him being their most talented player. That could just be an anomaly, but it does go to show the talent on the rest of the roster. If they have the opportunity to bring in a Morant, they might see that as being just as good, and then they don't have to deal with the Kyrie headaches that seem to follow him around.

Even if they don't bring in that top pick, they might decide they feel fine moving forward with Rozier and paying the man. Either way, Kyrie/ AD or the rest of the young pieces they currently have, they should have a pretty lengthy championship window. It'll be very interesting to see what direction Danny goes.

15 Apr 2019 19:37:56
I was also thinking a "retooled" Celtics roster will still be competitve against a Raptors team minus Kwahi, a 76ers team minus one of their FAs and a limited Embiid, and a Milwaukee team that has its own FAs to resign and limited financial market.

15 Apr 2019 21:18:13
Bledsoe opted for the most friendly contract possible. The Bucks are sitting pretty going into next season. Even if they lose 2 players they would like to keep.

13 Apr 2019 19:51:12
Coaching change hires

Cavs-Jordi Fernandez
Lakers-Monty Williams
Kings-David Vanterpool
Grizzlies-Nate Tibbetts

13 Apr 2019 21:38:31
Nope. Kings going with Luke Walton.

14 Apr 2019 04:31:31
Lakers-M. Williams, L. Hollins, if they hire Lue they are a joke.
Cavs-Vanterpool, cavs are not strangers to blazer personnel
Kings-Walton (already decided)
Grizzlies-SVG, Messina, Blatt, Vogel, all are solid steady-eddie type coaches. Hard to go wrong.

15 Apr 2019 13:16:26
The Lakers are a joke, but that's no different than an other team LeBron has been on. He wants to be the coach, and rarely cares what anyone on the sideline wearing a suit has to say. They all allow him to dictate decisions, even Riley to an extent. Spoelstra turned out to be a good choice, but you really only saw that after James went back to Cleveland.

That said, I'm really hoping that Walton gets those kids in Sacramento playing even better than this year. I would love to see that become a rivalry again and get a playoff matchup.

15 Apr 2019 19:46:05
Is it the Lakers are a dumpster fire?

Is it the Kings are becoming somewhat relevant after years in the toilet?

Or is it a combination of both?

13 Apr 2019 08:01:38

13 Apr 2019 10:06:54
Why would the Bulls trade Lauri for that package?

13 Apr 2019 10:39:19
To ruin your day.

13 Apr 2019 13:03:52
Yeah, I don’t see why the Bulls would trade Markannen for next to nothing.

14 Apr 2019 00:03:31
Or otherwise go with a youth movement but trade for over the hill Conley?

11 Apr 2019 19:46:18

11 Apr 2019 21:07:33
Too much from magic.

12 Apr 2019 01:51:37
Not enough from Magic.

All 3 Magic players have little value and are significantly overpaid.

12 Apr 2019 04:06:39
Fultz Mosgov are avg players making 25 mil. I think the trade is fair. Or u can add parson chandler magic keep pick.

09 Apr 2019 23:24:07

10 Apr 2019 01:33:44
Suns say no, not a deep enough draft to give up a dynamic player like Morant for mid-round picks.

Wolves laugh at that offer.

10 Apr 2019 01:49:10
There is no way Phoenix trades #2 for that package with Ja Morant still on the board.

10 Apr 2019 05:20:18
Not enough for kat.

10 Apr 2019 09:21:18
is this a joke?

10 Apr 2019 12:32:22
Another wonder bread Celtic fan idea 🤣🤣🤣.

10 Apr 2019 15:50:48
You get two all stars and the #2 overall pick, and don’t give up your most valuable asset? Nope, not happening.

None of the trades are incredibly close to fair. But the Beal one seems worst.

10 Apr 2019 17:32:30
I'm a die hard Celtics fan for 50 years, and I can't stop laughing.

The funniest thing for me is, that people are making these proposals that have draft picks like they know where the pick is slotted, which obviously we won't know until June.

06 Apr 2019 09:37:43
Pistons 2019 offseason

Pistons/ Memphis trade

Reggie Jackson
Jon Leuer
2019 1st round pick

Mike Conley

Pistons upgrade at the pg and memphis gets expiring contracts and a pick to set them up for the future

Trade 2019 2nd round pick and Galloway to move up in the draft to get Carsen Edwards

let Ish Smith walk and resign Ellington

06 Apr 2019 18:58:32
Two bad contracts and a mid 1st round pick for Conley? Memphis is getting robbed.

03 Apr 2019 18:00:38
Suns trade - Warren Jackson Okobo and 2020 top 5 protected 1st
Grizzlies trade - Conley

Suns resign Ourbe and Holmes
Draft Zion
Sign Mike Scott

Conley/Fredette
Booker/Johnson
Oubre/Bridges
Zion/Scott
Ayton/Holmes

03 Apr 2019 18:46:35
Why would they give up all that for an overpayed Conley, when they could either sign a free agent or draft a pg.

03 Apr 2019 19:12:46
Must be a Grizzlies fan.

03 Apr 2019 19:56:10
Wrong timeline for PHX with Conley, they will have an opportunity to fill that position in the draft more likely than getting Zwill. If they get Zwill, then I like this if they are serious about winning. Oubre would be nice, but Bridges is still there, maybe he'll show something next season.

02 Apr 2019 18:58:33

*Celtics re-sign:
Irving
Morris
Rozier

02 Apr 2019 20:03:43
ATL says no.

02 Apr 2019 20:35:52
Celtics have little use for Bazemore or Prince, and they are not going to give up 8 assets for Davis.
Here's the price for Davis:
1. Top-flight starter
2. Another starter
3. Another rotation player
4. First-rounder.

02 Apr 2019 21:55:21
If they give up Tatum, Brown, and Hayward, they have a huge use for Prince and Bazemore.

02 Apr 2019 22:53:08
No way the Celtics give up that much.

06 Apr 2019 21:37:38
Supercollider-The Kyrie Irving deal?

I. Thomas - Tatum
Crowder - Smart
Zizic - Clips 1st already drafted, for NOP

BRK 1st - '20 or '21 MEM pick if not already conveyed, otherwise if it hits for BOS this year a choice between SAC, MEM already drafted for the Pels. Its a blessing for NOP that Ainge and Co. handle the drafting, and aren't going to draft poorly in case things go south with AD deal

Is this about right?

May have to throw Brown in too to make salaries work instead of a pick.

06 Apr 2019 22:33:01
Well SuperCollider, I'm glad you don't set the AD market then

TF Starter Tatum
Starter Rozier
Rotation Brown



Two 1sts 2019 Gets you AD.

06 Apr 2019 21:54:27
Supercollider-
the Kyrie Irving deal:

I. Thomas
J. Crowder
Zizic
C. Sexton

Your AD deal:

Tatum
Smart
R. Williams
Picked MEM or not, or picked SAC

This meets the criteria you laid out, and salary trade rules requirements.

Is this the deal you think Ainge will make? I still think they need to trade Brown, or Hayward too if they take on AD, to make players happier, and win like the roster says it should. Hayward is going to require at least an asset to move. Hayward, Irving, Horford, AD is going to be awfully expensive, I'd shed his deal unless he surprises in the playoffs.

06 Apr 2019 21:52:36
Wait supercollider. Did you just label Hayward as an asset? As in trying to argue he is of positive value? Amazing.

02 Apr 2019 18:44:04

Adams/ Noel/ (Bassey)

Let me know what you think!

I know some of it is a little bit out there.

02 Apr 2019 19:20:26
Why for Memphis? 2 young's on cheap reals for a tanking team seems perfect.

02 Apr 2019 19:39:35
Where is the cap coming from for free agents?

02 Apr 2019 19:47:04
Might as well sign Durant too, salary cap going up to a quarter billion and all!

03 Apr 2019 14:28:47
The free agents are just targets. The roster spots are potential roster fillings.

06 Apr 2019 21:50:18
Supercollider, the AD deal will Mirror the Irving deal?

The Kyrie Irving deal:

I Thomas - Tatum
J. Crowder - Smart 4 AD
Zizic - R. Williams
C. Sexton - SAC 1st (picked)

Is this what you had in mind? I'd still trade a pick to offload Hayward because Irving, Davis, Horford, Hayward are going to be very expensive, and with Brown and Morris they could get by, or sign a cheaper FA, SF reserve, or trade for one while moving Hayward possibly.

28 Mar 2019 14:05:02
Boston should aim for KAT if Irving leaves


Boston: KAT+Covington
Minny: G Hayward+Baynes+ 1rnd pick Sac+1rnd pick clippers+ 1rnd pick Boston+ 1rnd pick Memphis 2020+ 1rnd pick Boston 2020+1rnd pick Boston 2022

Resign Rozier 45M for 3 years
Sign I Thomas 10M 1 year

C: KAT/R Williams
PF:Horford/Yabusele/Ojelye
SF:Tatum/Covington
SG:Smart/Brown
PG:Rozier/ I Thomas

28 Mar 2019 15:13:33
It looks like a minimum guy and I don’t see the Timberwolves being willing to even talk KAT right now and if they were, they would want something ridiculous.

28 Mar 2019 17:15:53
Hayward, LAC 1st for Wiggins, '19 1st.

28 Mar 2019 17:17:08
So, you want Minnesota to trade their 2 best players for mid to late 1st round picks, no young players back, and no salary cap relief?

Yeah, not going to happen.

28 Mar 2019 19:11:45
That's 6 draft picks and two are lottery for sure, that are a lot of assets for a team that 's going to rebuilt.

28 Mar 2019 19:18:24
If Minnesota rebuilds, they will rebuild around KAT. Not look to trade him for pennies on the dollar.

29 Mar 2019 04:36:51
Carl006 is absolutely correct.

31 Mar 2019 10:26:37
How can they rebuild around Kat when they really have no pieces with value. Wiggins and dieng would take assets to move. They need a full rebuild and move kat and Wiggins together.

21 Mar 2019 21:22:49
OKC Thunder Off-season 2019 Free Agency

Thunder Trade Russell Westbrook to Memphis

Memphis Trade Mike Conley Ivan Rabb to Thunder

If Thunder lose first or second round in playoffs this season I think they should Trade Russell Westbrook straight up

22 Mar 2019 01:29:20
Why would Memphis trade for him no pucks no help to rebuild?

22 Mar 2019 02:30:26
Still the worst gm.

22 Mar 2019 15:15:59
That’s ridiculous, you don’t give up Westbrook for Conley.

11 Apr 2019 16:36:10
No way the Thunder do that trade. I agree if they have a disapointing playoff run try to trade him but u need value back not just try to get rid of him. Conley isn't as good as Russ and he has been struggling with a lot of injuries the past few seasons. I doubt this happens but if i'm OKC I throw Russ at pelicans for Davis and see if that interest them at all.

18 Mar 2019 03:14:28
SAC - MEM

Sacramento sends: Bogdanovic, Giles, multiple 2nd rounders

Memphis sends: Jackson, Parsons

SAC depth:

Fox / Ferrell
Hield
Barnes / Parsons
Bagley / Bjelica
Jackson / Swanigan

That puts SAC at about $89mil ($20mil under 2019-2020 cap) or $64mil ($45mil under 2019-2020 cap) if Barnes opts out. Cauley-Stein probably isn't re-signed in this scenario.

MEM depth:

Conley / Carter
Bradley / Bogdanovic
Brooks / Miles / Caboclo
Giles / Anderson
Valanciunas / Rabb

That gets Memphis to about $97mil ($12mil under 2019-2020 cap) or $86mil ($23mil under 2019-2020 cap) without Bradley. The #6-ish pick in the 2019 draft would add $5mil or so, but could also return an established starter. Keeping Wright (RFA) would further reduce cap space.

Does Bogdanovic + Giles + absorbing $21mil (for next season only) get the Kings close enough for Jackson? Would Miles' contract need to be absorbed as well? Jackson would be ideal for the Kings - adding rim protection / starting more fast breaks and hitting 3's as a trailer in transition.

Memphis should probably trade Conley and go full rebuild, but their last couple moves don't really show that intent. Conley / Bogdanovic / Bradley would be a solid backcourt rotation, and Giles has shown great potential. They would really have to be targeting certain players (FA or trade) who fit their slower pace / success with veteran players.

18 Mar 2019 04:17:48
I don't think either team bites at this.

Memphis may have enough cap space to eat Parsons expiring deal (trade deadline asset? ) depending on how the options on Valancunis, Bradley and Miles play out. Plus, I would build around Jackson and the wing Memphis will draft this year. Lose your pick next year, but have enough cap space to take on salary for picks to fill the void.

Kings, on the other hand, love both BB8 and Giles and are quickly becoming fan favorites. Although Jackson would be an upgrade, I think the Kings lose too much in depth. Would rather see what the Kings can do in FA with their $20 mil (Vucevic? ) cap space and fun, winning atmosphere.

18 Mar 2019 04:45:55
I believe Kings would definitely agree. Jackson fits great w Bagley since he’s a great defender and can stretch the floor. They can use the cap space to fill out the bench.

18 Mar 2019 05:01:26
Maybe Memphis only does this trade if they win their way out of their 2019 pick (top 8 protected)? They're definitely in danger of that, since Dallas should be motivated to lose.

I think Miles is a lock to pick up his option, but if Valanciunas opts out, Memphis could waive Bradley (guaranteed $2mil out of $13mil next year) and have $20mil in cap space without doing the above trade.

If they lose their pick this year AND Valanciunas opts in, they'd already be just under the cap, so they may as well keep Bradley.

18 Mar 2019 18:15:18
Nba16, I agree that Jackson would be a great fit on the Kings. I just don't agree with the price that has to be paid to get him. Is Jackson so much better than Giles that it is worth giving up the team's 6th man (Bogdanovich) and all the team's available cap space? Especially, since the team's style of play is based all upon roster depth.

18 Mar 2019 18:37:25
Bagley/ Jackson. I don't get it. Both play the same position, and wouldn't likely see a lot of time on the floor together. Huge underpay for Jackson too in the trade.

18 Mar 2019 20:45:36
Bagley and Jackson can play either PF or C. I believe Bagley fits better in today’s nba at the 5.

19 Mar 2019 00:07:09
I was confused about your first response NBA16, thanks for clearing that up. And thank you for the position education about Bagley/ Jackson. Just looking out for me, how nice of you!

Hope celtics don't do that.

13 Mar 2019 21:30:05
Comme on, boston gets Lbj without giving up tatum or j brown. that's a no brainer.

LA trades james to a contender, that's nit a bad look for future free agents.

13 Mar 2019 22:48:35
Lebron ain't worth 3 firsts today.

How 8s Parsons In the deal? He doesn't play for Boston?

14 Mar 2019 13:56:36
* Memphis: Hayward

for C Parsons and they lower the protection on the pick (protection 1-6 in 2020 unprotected in 2021 to top 2 protected in 2020)

14 Mar 2019 15:40:34
Hayward has another year, Griz would want their pick returned. They would be eating an entire year of Hayward at 35 million.

This is assuming Irving opts in?

10 Mar 2019 04:44:41
Why not sign Irving out right?

10 Mar 2019 14:05:03
More cap space to resign Jordan. Irving opting in means guarenteed 5 yrs 284 mil contract in summer of 2020.

10 Mar 2019 14:21:39
Knicks draft picks have value, but not their players. And what's the point of Boston getting Davis if Irving leaves?

10 Mar 2019 23:02:44
Supercolliflower,

You have chance to dump Hayward, get a better system pg making boston pg depth the best, backup sg who defends better than most but for only 16-20mpg. Get a top 5 player, best c or Pf in the league without giving up Tatum. Become better and your complaint is about 2020 season. Why. Smh. I say risking for Davis for yr. Is worth the risk.

11 Mar 2019 00:33:25
Shizzee, isn't a part of the requirements for a super max deal is that the player has to be drafted by the team?

11 Mar 2019 00:35:04

Cant include other players in a sign and trade for Rozier.

Plus isn't Russell also a RFA?

10 Mar 2019 04:47:36
So make a bunch of super one sided trades that make no sense for the other team?

10 Mar 2019 13:25:02
Also, the days of back end deals are gone with latest CBA. 5% max raise from year to year on contracts.

Please work on your cap space managment. Blake makes $34 mil next season while Roberson + Noel (assuming he opts in) is $13 mil and OKC is already over the luxury tax for next year let alone the salary cap for next year. Toss in schroder and the Melo trade exception to get the salaries right.

My bad. didn't see shroeder getting diverted to the Spurs.

I like this for the Celtics
Conley-Rozier-Ntilikina is a deep rotation and i still believe Ntilikina is a potential star.
Conley has only a contract for two more years, he can mentor Ntilikina and finaly get his first All star selection.
But i don't think you can find a Celtic fan accepting this trade :-)

Memphis is a good places for Smith to develop

And i really hope NY can get two big free agents this time.

The only reason I'm against it is that I still believe in Hayward. I think Ntilikina is a serviceable guy, probably not a star at all, but a quality defender. I think Conley, when healthy, is a very good player, and would bring the exact opposite attitude the Celtics seem to be getting from Kyrie. Bradley is probably all done at this point, but if anyone was going to get something out of him it would be Brad.

I don't know if Kyrie is the guy I want leading the team going forward. He's clearly amazing talent-wise. There's no argument that the team is not as good on paper without him, but being great on paper hasn't worked out too well this season anyway.
Hayward, on the other hand, plays the way you want a guy to in the system they're trying to run. If anything, as he feels better you want him to be a bit MORE selfish. Obviously he's not right, be that physically or mentally, and the question is if they think he will get back there. If so, I think I stick with him. If not, this is definitely a trade I would think about.

I like Conley with the Bulls, but MEM is looking to salary dump, and pick up a 1st. Porter is a little pricey for too long on a rebuilder?

26 Feb 2019 17:35:05
If you can get the #4 pick, you would take on just about any salary as a rebuilding team I'd think. They're not going to be signing any big time free agents within the next two years.

I really don't love giving up that pick for Conley. Seems like an overpay. I guess if you're getting Durant and are ready to compete now it could make sense, but still seems steep.

I would never turn down a lottery pick, nice try to slander me again Bmiller66, I just didn't mention it, because it was obvious. There is a difference. Are you going to go tell now?

26 Feb 2019 20:56:50
You said: "Porter is a little pricey for too long on a rebuilder"

Disagreeing with your comment is slandering you? I'm confused. You seem like your second comment is disagreeing with your first. Whatever.

You have a vivid imagination and should write soap-opera's with your illustrious talent for story telling!

Hey fredman, how's the armpit of California?

27 Feb 2019 13:47:08
Wouldnt know. Havent lived in Cali in years. Nice to see you still assuming things, Jorga.

And proving my point at the same time.

27 Feb 2019 14:59:52
Where do you live?

If you were a shape, you'd be a circle.
