3 team deal

Memphis- Cleveland - Phoenix

Cavs get:
Chandler Warren

Memphis get:
JR Smith

Phoenix get:

Cavs free up cap early and free up minutes for Sexton while getting young forward in Warren

Memphis get shooting for a playoff run

Phoenix get a veteran pg that they where looking for while getting young forward in return in Osman

16 Oct 2018 05:14:08
So the Grizzlies move off one of the worst deals in the league for free?

Hill, Korver and Smith have a combine 7 million in guaranteed money after this year and Cedi looks like he could become a starting caliber player. Warren is the better prospect, but not by a ton. This is awful for the Cavs.

16 Oct 2018 06:08:22
Even if parsons has a 15, 5 and 5 season he's overpaid. Good for the grizzlies but overpaid and bad for the cavs here.

01 Oct 2018 14:50:50
Memphis/ Sacramento

Memphis gets Zach Randolph and Iman Shumpert

Sacramento gets Chandler Parsons, lottery protected 1st rounder and 2 future 2nd rounders.

01 Oct 2018 16:10:28
I really don't like it for Memphis. If they need to get under the luxury tax, they could do it without giving up picks. It's not like they have a realistic chance at landing a meaningful free agent, so clearing cap space isn't a big deal.

01 Oct 2018 19:37:19
Didnt memphis let Randolph walk two years ago for free?

02 Oct 2018 01:39:39
Not the point Shiller, this is expiring deals for a bad contract in Parsons. If this deal were to materialize, Randolph would be a buyout candidate.

02 Oct 2018 19:53:56
Nobody wants Chandler Parsons including the usually gullable Kings.

21 Sep 2018 01:36:38
Raptors Trade Serge Ibaka Delon Wright 2019 first round pick (unprotected) 2019 second round pick (unprotected)

Wolves Trade Jimmy Butler Tyus Jones

Second Trade

Memphis Trade Mike Conley to Raptors

Raptors Trade Kyle Lowry to Memphis

21 Sep 2018 03:43:57
Hey MD, the Raps 2019 pick already belongs to the Spurs. Though it’s protected, you can’t trade it twice.

You have got to stop posting brah, you’re not getting many believables.

21 Sep 2018 20:47:48
Conley for lowry? Why for memphos?

14 Sep 2018 22:57:22
Miami - Memphis

Miami get:
2022 1st (lottery protected. conveys to 2 2nds)

Takes on a bigger contract for less years to give cap relief next year and cap space the year after. + draft pick

Memphis get:

solid role players for 2-3 years for playoff run. will come off the books when conley's contract will and will have massive cap room.

15 Sep 2018 02:51:03
Terrible deal for Miami. Every player from Miami is much better than every player from Memphis. No chance in Hell Miami does this deal.

03 Sep 2018 11:13:19

Suns: T.Rozier, T.Young (exp)

Celtics: M.Turner, 2nd rd pick Suns

Pacers: T.Warren, D.Bender, 1st rd pick Celtics (worse of Clippers/Memphis)

Suns gave up 2 young players for a position of need and an expiring vet. Warren is good but they have a logjam at wings

Pg Rozier-Okobo
Sg Booker-Daniels
Sf Ariza-Jackson
Pf Young-Anderson
Ce Ayton-Chandler

Celtics need a guy like Turner more than Rozier. They gave up potentially a mid 1st rd pick but could be worth it

Pg Irving-Smart
Sg Hayward-Brown
Sf Tatum-Morris
Pf Horford-Theiss
Ce Turner-Baynes

Pacers would have a hard time paying Turner after the season. They get Warren (a position of need) who has a good contract and a young center/forward who still has a potential. They also gain a 1st rd pick in the deal

Pg Collison-Joseph
Sg Oladipo-Evans
Sf Warren-Bogdanovic
Pf Sabonis-Leaf
Ce Oquinn-Bender

Any revision? Who says no? Who needs to give up more?less?

03 Sep 2018 14:57:58
If I’m Indy, I want more to give up Turner. He’s already good on both ends and has the potential to be really good. He has all the tools you’d want out of a modern big. Rozier is probably a starting caliber pg, but he hasn’t proven it yet.

03 Sep 2018 16:51:53
Celtics give all your 2019 1st for Turner.

01 Sep 2018 18:50:49

PHO: Rozier, Fournier, 2019 Orl 2nd

Bos: Vucevic, Bender, Simmons, 2019 Pho 1st

Orl: Warren, J. Brown, 2019 SAC 1st, 2019 Mem 1st

01 Sep 2018 19:03:56
There is no way that Boston even considers giving up Brown, Rozier, the possible second overall pick and Memphis's No. 1 for three players who wouldn't start and might not even play significant minutes.

01 Sep 2018 19:17:36
Are you nuts okdschool?!?

Brown should have won mvp last season and rozier is probably the single biggest franchise cornerstone.

No way!

01 Sep 2018 19:53:37
Rozier is good, not great, certainly not a franchise cornerstone. He will want way too much next off-season, so trade him now while Phoenix is high on him. Brown is really good, but not even as good as Tatum is. Brown may not be in the Celtics future plans, Tatum is hands down. Vucevic would start at the 5. Boston's starting five would be:

That's a great starting 5.

01 Sep 2018 20:04:23
There is no logic in this trade. Simmons and Vucevic together aren’t guaranteed to land you a lottery pick. They’re average starters at best. Fournier has negative value. You somehow have that landing Orlando 2 lottery picks and one of the best young wing players in basketball. Brown is absolutely in Boston’s future unless they need him to get an elite young big. It’s not like he and Tatum can’t play together and it’s not ridiculous to say that he could be better than Hayward as soon as this year.

01 Sep 2018 21:39:47
Are you serious notdrainer? You’re delusional if you think Brown should have been MVP.

This is a bad trade for Boston.

02 Sep 2018 02:18:44
I think nodrainer logic about Rozier being the greatest cornerstone of the team is absolutely ludicrous.
Rozier will be traded at some point, because they would never consider giving him a max contract.

Oldskool. no way the Celtics are trading Brown.
Un less it's Davis or Towns, the Celtics will stand pat and try tto ride this team to the finals. Although, they may add a minor piece like a Korver.

02 Sep 2018 14:45:54
It was sarcasm. I would have assumed everyone would have picked up on that seeing as I essentially called a backup guard a better building block than idk, everyone in the league.

02 Sep 2018 17:35:23
Trades are not 1 dollar you mostly get 50 cents other teams have to budge and we’ll they'll have to pay brown Rozier Kyrie and taytum soon with the heyward n Horford contract it’ll be tough.

31 Aug 2018 05:56:47
Assuming the Grizzlies tank this year .
Deng , Ingram , Zubac, 2019 1st , 2020nd

31 Aug 2018 15:18:07
Grizz aren't tanking.

31 Aug 2018 16:16:47
Like Shiller said the Grizzlies aren’t tanking. The owner things that they can win 50 games, they added win now pieces, and it didn’t sound like they even shopped Gasol or Conley.

30 Aug 2018 01:00:47
Celtics get Gasol and Dakari Johnson
Grizzlies get Hayward, Celtics 2019 1st round pick

Celtics fill a need at C and they keep more playing time for Tatum and Brown since Hayward wouldn't be coming back.

Grizzlies would be taking a risk, but if Hayward can return like George did and still be fine he is younger and better than Gasol. He did look good in the gym getting up shots, but that is just the gym not a game. The Celtics throw in the 1st round pick since Hayward is coming back from the injury to make the deal a lil better. If need be they wait until Hayward returns to see him play and make the trade during the season before the trade deadline. If he does return to normal and they wait the may not get the 1st then.

Celtics lineup
Irving/ Rozier
Brown/ Smart
Tatum/ Morris
Horford/ Williams
Gasol/ Baynes
Then the rest of the bench.

30 Aug 2018 05:01:44
Hayward for Parsons.

30 Aug 2018 13:14:38
There is no way Celtics trade Hayward for Parsons. They need another big man beside Horford not another SF to take minutes from the good young players.

30 Aug 2018 15:37:59
How in the world are Boston giving up a first in this? Did people forget that Hayward is an all star caliber player? Perhaps I just don’t have the concerns others do about his injury, but he’s worth a lot more than a declining Gasol.

30 Aug 2018 18:02:36
The first will be a very low first. It's not just that he was injured it's the type of injury he had. He could come back and still be an all star like George did, or he could come back and never be the same like Rose. Those are just two recent examples but this has happened a lot and you never know how they will come back. The grizzlies get the 1st so if he doesn't return to normal their not stuck with just a bad contract they got a 1st out of it.

30 Aug 2018 18:59:37
Yes, the C’s could use a big (Gasol) vs. a wing (Hayward), but I would rather Gordon right now as Gasol’s in the downswing.

30 Aug 2018 22:09:56
Yeah, I'd take my chances at Hayward coming back from injury to 100% at 28 over Gasol having a bounce back year in his mid 30's.

31 Aug 2018 23:22:39
Just like there is no way Pels trade AD for Hayward.

If NOLA completely sucks at TD then I can see Boston going all out for AD with Brown, a boat full of 1st rd. picks and some fillers (Yabusele, Morris, maybe even Smart) .

28 Aug 2018 09:37:01
Memphis: T Hardaway+ 1rnd pick NY 2020.

NY: Temple+ J Green

NY get capspace for the 2019 and 2020 free agency.

Memphis can go for another run with Gasol and Conley and get an extra pick so they can start rebuilding in 2020.

28 Aug 2018 14:30:24
I like it for both teams with the caveat that the pick would have some protection on it. Maybe top 10?

29 Aug 2018 04:11:09
Hardaway for mathews no pick needed. Knicks not trading Hardaway at the cost of a pick only noah.

29 Aug 2018 05:00:41
Shizzee, it’s pretty doubtful that anyone is taking on Hardaway for free.

29 Aug 2018 06:19:06
They can use 2022 to dump Noah.

29 Aug 2018 09:15:33
Comme on shizzee. This gives NY two chances to get a good free agent.

NY keeps Knox, Ntilikina, Porzingis and Knox, they keep the 2019 draft pick and they clear cap.

29 Aug 2018 13:44:41
II, no one in their right mind is taking Noah if the sweetener is NY’s 2022 first.

Shizzee, Dallas also has plans of being a player in the FA market next summer. They could have as little as $15M on the books, and at a maximum they’ll have $50M. It would take very little to be in two max territory. Taking on Hardaway’s $18M commitment for multiple years is not going to happen unless there is a big sweetener attached.

You need a team who’s timeline for competing is further out to consummate a deal where they’re willing to take on multiple years of contract to get a first.

29 Aug 2018 19:35:53
Maybe if they do the trade on draft night to just take on expiring Noah then yeah cause what if the Knicks sucks and that pick is awesome so kings or Hawks do it.

25 Aug 2018 16:32:26
1)Knicks- Minny

Minny: Knox+ Noah+ T Hardaway+ 1rnd pick NY 2019 and 2021

NY: Butler+ Gibson

2) Minny- Boston

Boston: KAT

Minny: J Brown+ 1rnd pick Sac+ 1rnd pick Memphis

3)Minny- NO

NO: Wiggins

Minny: S Hill+ Mirotic+ 1rnd pick NO (lottery protected)

25 Aug 2018 16:55:53
No thank u from ny, they will get him in off season if wants to come to ny.

25 Aug 2018 17:55:19
I think the Celtics would be all over that deal, I just don't think that Minnesota will trade KAT. If they dod, iT would be for much more than that. Imo.

25 Aug 2018 19:15:01
Tatum + for kat otherwise I don’t see it happening but KAT would look good on the Celtics.

26 Aug 2018 03:19:16
NY would love that clearing Noah and more important is Butler bird rights but ny keeps there 19 and give up 20.

21 Aug 2018 17:41:51
BOS gets Butler

MIN gets Brown, Smart Theis and Mem pick.

21 Aug 2018 18:02:27
Are you high? I wouldn't trade Brown straight up for Butler, never mind the rest of the package. Butler is not that good.

21 Aug 2018 18:23:01
I wouldn’t give up Brown for Butler because of Butler’s personality and contract situation, but he would be the best all around player on the Celtics imo.

21 Aug 2018 19:44:26
Butler would be a rental. Celtics won't have the cash to max him out. Besides, no way he's worth a starter, two other rotation players and a moderately high No. 1 pick.

21 Aug 2018 20:16:46
Um. Yes he is worth that. The only reason not is due to his contract situation.

Do Celtics fans want to win this year or just keep going In The future? Seems like the latter.

21 Aug 2018 20:33:12
Butler is a really good player but this package is more valuable than what raps paid for Leonard.

21 Aug 2018 21:25:48
Spurs hands were tied, ninny’s aren’t . yet.

21 Aug 2018 21:39:33
If Ainge really wanted Butler, he would have traded for him long before he was traded to Minnesota.
I know Butlet is a good player, but he cannot defend like Brown.

To answer your questions, Knicksfan, of course they want to win, but they would be further away by trading a top starter and 2 valuable rotation pieces aND a good 1st rd pick for someone who wouldn't replace what they are losing.

21 Aug 2018 21:57:09
Comme on, the only reason Boston wouldn't do this is the contract situation.

It's a good package.
J Brown is a good defender and show potential, but he isn't a starter, playing behind Hayward and Tatum.
The memphis pick is top seven protected, so it must be a loaded draft to give that pick value.

I would hesitate doing this trade, because Smart is a really good rollplayers.

But the Celtics should do this trade, they get a two way top ten player without giving up Tatum, Hayward, Irving and Horford.

21 Aug 2018 21:57:20
JoeB, the guy who was on the defense 1st team this year can’t defend like Jaylen Brown? Brown was a good defender last year, but come on.

21 Aug 2018 21:58:15
Butler is a top tier defender, how can he not defend like Brown? He's a 4 time all NBA Defensive Team, including last year.

I like Brown, but has he become one of the most overrated players in the NBA if you wouldn't trade him for an all star in Butler? It's not like you're giving up a top 5 pick, that Memphis pick is protected for two more years.

Brown is also only locked in for two more years, then you likely have to pay him a huge contract. So you're paying someone an enormous payday one way or another. Might as well take the superior player and try to win a ring now.

22 Aug 2018 00:37:20
Yeah butler is worth the package but salaries for C’S are already peaking I think we will just keep what we have and keep those draft picks.

22 Aug 2018 05:31:29
Lmao the bias by celtics fans, butler is a better defender then brown, better score, better passer, better at everything and if they traded brown for butler straight up would be favored to win the title this year.

22 Aug 2018 05:32:03
i shouldve said would win the title.

22 Aug 2018 13:20:59
C’s fans are ridiculous. Butler is better than Brown in every way.

As everyone else non-delusional above has stated, the reason Boston doesn’t, and shouldn’t make this deal is Butler’s pending FA status. A lineup of Irving, Butler, Tatum, Hayward and Horford would be ridiculous though.

22 Aug 2018 15:00:51
Butler is way better than Brown, Brown is younger and should look more explosive than Jimmy buckets. If Ainge had a crystal ball and saw that Boston would win if they made this trade then Danny would make it, just for the title. But DA doesn't have a crystal ball and this trade is NOT going to happen.

With Hayward back in the fold I can see Brown being moved at some point, either at the deadline or next summer. But i'd Hayward gets injured there's no way that Browns get moved.

22 Aug 2018 16:33:43
Billj, Hayward has been pretty healthy through his career and a break isn’t really a risk for reinjury, once it’s healed. The only real risk is that his leg isn’t as strong and he doesn’t have the same explosiveness.

22 Aug 2018 17:19:45
Hayward and Tatum are SF, brown is a SG. Until Hayward or Tatum shrink and add significant ball handling to their skill set brown is the starting SG.

22 Aug 2018 17:49:18
I think the C’s will use Hayward at the four in a death squad lineup to be able to get Brown and Tatum on the floor with the starting unit.

22 Aug 2018 18:14:19
Hayward is a considerably better ball handler than Brown from everything I've ever seen. Also, if you trade Brown, you're getting a guy that can be a primary ball handler in Butler. Boston would have three point guards (Irving, Smart, Rozier) and two more wings that can run the offense (Hayward, Butler) . And they'd have one of the best point centers in the NBA in Horford. Boston would be one of the strongest ball handling teams in the NBA.

Is there any difference between a SG and SF in the NBA any more? I think they should move to three positions: Point, Wing, Big. There's still some grey areas, but it's more realistic to what the NBA is.

22 Aug 2018 19:05:06
Brown was the starting 2 all last season even opening day when hayward was injured. Why would tatum take browns place and Hayward all of the sudden a 2 instead of a 3?

22 Aug 2018 19:21:26
Tatum is projected starting in the PF slot.

22 Aug 2018 19:44:41
Celtics cannot trade Smart until after January 15 by league rules.

23 Aug 2018 01:55:32
Wow Btec is absolutely clueless! Ok keep overrated Jaylen brown over jimmy butler haha I never thought I’d have to write something so stupid! Boston can’t beat golden state anyways but you keep dreaming brown turns into half the player butler is.

23 Aug 2018 04:41:46
I said the raptors paid less for Leonard and butler is a really good player. What are you talking about Cde2812? I'm serious I have no clue what you are talking about?

23 Aug 2018 15:19:02
Im still cracking up at the person who said that Butler can't defend like Brown.

Mind you, Butler made 4 of the last 5 all defensive teams, and all nba the past 2 years.

Brown made an all rookie, second team. Nothing else.

That should give an idea of the inflated values Celtics fans put on their players.

23 Aug 2018 17:20:43
I don't understand how Toronto paid less for Leonard. They gave up an all NBA player that is as good as Butler himself. Plus a young player and a first.

I'd take Derozan (a 4 time all star and two time all NBA player), Poetl, and a first over Brown, Smart and a first any day.

23 Aug 2018 19:32:46
Butler is better than derozan and Leonard is better than butler. Poetl and theiss are pretty even and smart and brown are equal to derozan but the grizzlies 1st is more valuable than the Raps 1st. It could be a late lottery choice.

19 Aug 2018 10:50:17
Spurs: M Gasol

LA: M Conley

Memphis: Deng+Ball+ Mills+ R Gay+ 1rnd pick Toronto

19 Aug 2018 13:56:33
Grizzhad Rudy when he was young and still athletic and traded him. ballis trash. lakers would have to add a first round pick and another player like kuz or ingram.

19 Aug 2018 14:23:18
Comme on, Ball is going to be good and LA takes a risk, Conley is already 31 and it's a big contract.

19 Aug 2018 14:45:49
Marc Gasol to LA makes more sense for them.

19 Aug 2018 14:46:01
The Lakers don't want to fill up a big salary slot with Conley. They have bigger targets. It's questionable if he's even positive value on that deal.

19 Aug 2018 15:55:49
Verdict out on conley, haven't seen him play. Ball too since he's had surgery. If the Griz are trying to make the postseason this isn't the way.

20 Aug 2018 11:51:13
Grizzgive up two starters for ball ( average to trash), deng no value and a low first rounder?

07 Aug 2018 14:06:54
Memphis and Oklahoma City

OKC sends Adams, Singler, Patterson, and Abrines and a future 2nd Round Pick to Memphis for

Marc Gasol, Garrett Temple, and JaMychel Green.

Temple and Green can net you 16 Million to spend after 2018-19 Season and with Marc Gasol another 24 Million to spend too.

According to the NBA Trade Machine the Memphis adds one more win.

Thunder do not add nor subtract.

07 Aug 2018 14:46:34
Thunder don't do this. They value Adams and need him. unless they get a deal that is just too good to pass up, and this is not that deal. Adams is 25 not quite in his prime but close. They would be getting 3 older players 28 32 33 all close to the end of their prime. And as far as the 16 mil they can spend they can't. Since they are already way over luxury tax limit this would not put them below it and they would not be able to sign more than minimum contracts or their mid level exception. And also this is the last year on Abrines contract, and Singler next year is a team option and they won't accept so they would already be freeing up just over 10 mil to spend without this trade if they could actually spend it.

08 Aug 2018 14:18:20
Both of you off unless okc attaches 1st to dump singler paterson.

03 Aug 2018 22:30:23
Grizzlies get - Crabbe and Arthur

Nuggets get - Carroll

Nets get - Parsons Griz 2019 1st top 8 protected Plumlee Lydon and Den 2nd




04 Aug 2018 01:22:48
Celtics own grizzlies 2019 1sr Rd pick already.

03 Aug 2018 17:02:29
Memphis gets Alex Abrines and Kyle Singler

OKC gets Garrett Temple and Dakari Johnson

Memphis would do well to pair Abrines with Gasol who play on the Spain national team together. Singler needs a change of scenery and is partially guaranteed next season.

Thunder get a great backup 3 who could play closeout minutes and has an expiring deal. Dakari was developing well for the Thunder, comes back, and they still save money.

03 Aug 2018 06:43:01
Thunder get temple TPE
Grizzlies get 2 2nd round picks

Temple is 32 and on his last year of contract Grizzlies replace him with 2 possible young players with potential.
Thunder get a back up SF that can defend and hit the 3. Temple could also mentor one of the younger wings thunder have.

Thunder buyout, stretch, or trade Singler

Westbrook/ Schroder/ Felton
Roberson/ Abrines/ Ferguson/ Diallo
George/ Temple/ TLC/ Nader
Patterson/ Grant
Adams/ Noel.

03 Aug 2018 21:03:45
Grizz just him to help. Why are they trading him?

03 Aug 2018 02:46:13
Thunder lack a solid backup SF and have several young players that can battle for the backup SG position Ferguson, TLC, Diallo so I think they should trade Alex Abrines using the TPE from Melo trade to get a solid SF for the bench. Most of the trades would make the luxury bill go up a lot but Thunder could cut, trade, or stretch Singler to make them cheaper and open a roster spot after the trade.

Thunder get Demarre Carroll
Nets get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd

Thunder get Marvin Williams
Hornets get Abrines

Thunder get Korver
Cavs get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Bojan Bogdanovic
Pacers get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Josh Richardson
Heat get Abrines, 2 2 nd’s

Thunder get Tony Snell
Bucks get Abrines

Thunder get Courtney Lee
Knicks get Abrines, 1 2nd if needed

Thunder get Jonathan Simmons
Magic get Abrines 2 2nd’s

Thunder get CJ Miles
Raptors get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get Garrett Temple
Grizzlies get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get E'Twaun Moore
Pelicans get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Jae Crowder
Jazz get Abrines, 2 2nds

At trade deadline if Ariza won't sign with sun's next year
Thunder get Ariza
Suns get Abrines, 1 or 2 seconds

Give me your opinions. Will any of these work?

03 Aug 2018 05:24:03
Can't include a TPE with a player.

03 Aug 2018 06:13:48
Dang I didn't realize that. Well ignore all of those.

28 Jul 2018 07:54:14
Miami gets temple(expiring) and Green(expiring)

Memphis gets T Johnson

The Heat have cap issues and a log jam at sg. They trade away their most expensive one for 2 expirings and save 5 million.

Memphis expects to compete this year, but doesn't have a realistic option to start at sg. Johnson is a tough 3 and D guy, who can thrive next to the play making of Conley and Gasol. This also clears a starter spot for Jackson, who is probably going to be at his best early on only haveibg to play defense and hit open jumpers, which he looked more than capable of in college and the summer league.

The Grizzlies might want a pick or something out of this to take on that big contract, but if they could even get a 2nd out of Miami, I think it's a great deal for both teams.

25 Jul 2018 09:41:56
CLE 2018-19
Resign: Rodney Hood
Waive/ Stretch: Jr Smith


CLE get: Mike Conley, Chandler Parsons, and Kent Bazemore

MEM get: Collin Sexton, George Hill, and Kyle Korver

ATL get: Tristan Thompson and 2019 MEM 1st DP (protected 1-15) or 2021 and 2023 2nd rd dp

New Looks Cavs

Pg. Conley/ Clarkson
Sg. Hood/ Bazemore
Sf. Osman/ Parsons
Pf. Love/ Frye
C. Nance/ Zizic.

25 Jul 2018 10:15:29
That team ain’t winning anything so I don’t know why the cavs should trade away the only good young player they have.

25 Jul 2018 12:07:08
That Team would compete in the east. They chose their direction with the Love extension.

And Hood & Osman will ball out this year watch

I believe the Cavs should hold on to Sexton he has good potential, and I don't think they should trade away their valueable young assets there is no reason for them to trade away the furture and try to win now unless they get a crazy offer for Sexton, Hood, or Osman. Because let's be honest you might make it to the finals in the East, but if u don't have either 2 stars and a perfect system and perfect role players around the two stars or 3 stars and still good depth you won't even stand a chance in the finals, you saw what just happened with Cavs and warriors that was with LeBron and the same players they have now that trade will not help them in the finals so no point. in a couple years Hood (already good), Osman, and Sexton can all be very good two way players which is important in this league.

Makes no sense for cavs.

Signing Love was about keeping your best assets in house. It doesn’t even mean he can’t be traded later this season. Sexton and Osman would take godfather offers to get and even guys like Hood, Nance, and Zizic would take over market value offers to get. The Cavs aren’t going all in on a core of flawed older veterans. They weren’t even willing to do that with Lebron on the roster.

That's like 90% of salary cap.

You’re right Hood and Osman will ball, along with Sexton! Why would cavs take on allll that money, whenever they can get most guys off the books next year?

Who is going to take Love, only therapist and psych ward will take him.

If Butler gets traded before the deadline, do you think Minnesota blows it up once again? I think they will.

Celtics get Towns
Wolves get Brown, Rozier. Clippers pick and Grizzlies pick.

As much as I'd love that, I think Towns is the one you rebuild around.

23 Jul 2018 14:05:28
I don't think that's nearly enough. Brown is a special guy, I think, but Towns is a special big man, which is something else entirely, and he's also young. There aren't many players I would move Brown for, and I've said on here many times I wouldn't move him for Leonard, but Towns (and also Davis) is someone I would. Davis is trickier than Towns because of the current contracts, and the players that would need to be moved. A Brown/ Rozier package would work as a start to bring in Towns, while one of the other big guns would have to be sent to New Orleans.

Too early to call with wolves. Towns was atrocious in the playoffs. A big man who can't post up? Kind of the easiest thing to do as center. If butler leaves towns and Wiggins have a long way to go in their development. Wolves will be lottery for a couple seasons.

You have to add Tatum to any deal involving towns/ Davis they’re to good to young and finding bigs that good is much harder then finding a pretty good sg/ sf I like brown a lot but he is nothing great y’all act like he’s a superstar which he’s not so honestly I doubt either end up in Boston ever.
