21 Jun 2018 21:34:52
I don't think Giannis is going anywhere. He and Middleton, are pretty much "Untouchable! "

21 Jun 2018 21:36:30
Come on dude.

21 Jun 2018 22:01:13
Giannis is on the AD level of untouchable.

21 Jun 2018 22:17:55
Come on man that's not going to happen.

21 Jun 2018 22:45:44
Probably fair value, but the Bucks wouldn't trade him.

21 Jun 2018 20:31:57
MIL - CHA

Walker, Batum for Bledsoe, Snell, Zeller

For Charlotte it's now or never to unload Batum attached to Walker. Here they get two more than servicable players and the brother Zeller.

The Bucks need to be desperate for a big move to take on Batum's contract and Walker commited to long term deal to pull the trigger. With Parker resigning and such a trade MIL go over the tax. Maybe this is why they are reported to try to unload Dellavedova with the 17th.

21 Jun 2018 20:55:43
Seems like a fair trade!, Now if the Bucks can find a Big Man for the middle?

21 Jun 2018 21:23:23
The Hornets would need some kind of young talent or picks. They're going full rebuild. Bledsoe is basically just annexpiring to them.

21 Jun 2018 21:40:48
Hornets with 5 centers. I get the batum dump, but it seems there would be better deals to avoid the center glut. Unite the zellers!

21 Jun 2018 21:52:52
They can't ask for talents and picks and unload Batum.

21 Jun 2018 22:48:09
Yeah, Charlotte doesn't want "servicable players", they want youth or picks. Unloading Batum is great, but they'd want a first as well.

20 Jun 2018 23:46:18
Hornets get ball, dudley and deng plus 20 first from Lakers and second round pick Suns

Suns get batum

Lakers get Walker.

Lakers free 13 mil so have 75 mil if they announce all free agents. plus have an all star PG in Walker, Ingram, kuzma, Hart,zubak, Bryant, AND ennis. Sign James 28, George 28 with 19 left for cousins or Jordan. Will reddick take 8.5 mle to compete I think so
Walker
Reddick
George
James
Cousins/Jordan
With Ingram and kuzma would be strong bench.

21 Jun 2018 05:02:04
20 first round picks?

21 Jun 2018 05:02:59
Where did the hornets get the cap for this?

21 Jun 2018 05:48:37
Ball deng and Dudley equal Batum and Walker. 2020 first for the LD people.

20 Jun 2018 22:42:11
MIL - ATL - CHA

MIL gets Walker
ATL gets Bledsoe, Wilson, Brown
CHA gets Schroeder, 17th, 19th

Bucks obviously get the best player and upgrade a ton at pg

Hawks switch similar pgs, but take one in a shorter deal. Atlanta might need anyway to attach the 19th to unload Schroeder, here they get also Wilson (for some reason they like him since last year) and Brown to add competition with Dorsey

Hornets made it clear that they will rebuild for the next two years with the Mozgov deal. They have to pull the trigger now for Kemba. If they can't succeed in dealing him with Batum, this package might be the best they can have

20 Jun 2018 23:42:40
That's not enough for Kemba and there is no way that the Hornets take on salary in the deal.

21 Jun 2018 02:31:44
@milpso, I don't believe The Bucks are going to give up 3 players plus their only pick in the draft for Walker. Yes, walker would be an upgrade, Just not worth 3 players and the 17th pick to get him. Schroeder wants to come to Milwaukee, As does Dedmon from Atlanta. The Bucks would be better off just trading head up with Atlanta, and not include The Hornets.

20 Jun 2018 18:21:35
Suns trade picks 31, 59, 2019 2nd round to Wizards for Gortat(expiring) and pick 15

Suns trade picks 15, 16, and Bucks future 1st round pick to Cavs for pick 8.

Suns draft Ayton number 1 and Trea Young number 8.

Wizards get under Luxury tax, Cavs get multiple picks to help kickstart their rebuild when Lebron leaves.

20 Jun 2018 18:31:14
Trae young is rumored to have slipped past 10. Knicks wouldn't even draft there.

20 Jun 2018 19:22:03
then suns turn trade Gortat with Alvin Williams to net for Dwight howard that can came and teach Ayton defense and offense.

20 Jun 2018 20:05:36
If hornets teammates wanted Howard gone, I would guess bringing him into a young suns locker room is a bad idea.

19 Jun 2018 23:12:41
Milwaukee receives: Demarre Carroll

Brooklyn receives: John Henson, DJ Wilson, pick #17

Milwaukee sheds a bad contract in John Henson for Carroll's expiring deal. Carroll played well with the Nets last season and they have a chance to capitalize on his increased value. Brooklyn wants to acquire a first round pick in the teens, even if they take on another bad contract in doing so.
Wilson struggled with Milwaukee, but Brooklyn liked him during the draft process last year.

20 Jun 2018 01:27:38
Milwaukee needs more.

20 Jun 2018 01:38:57
Maybe if it were a 2nd rather than a 1st.

19 Jun 2018 22:31:33
WAS gets Parker (45mil, 3y, PO)
MIL get Oubre, 15th, Smith (if he opts in)

Wizards lock a fourth starter with long term deal in a friendly price considering the other deals they already have. They still have to upgrade somehow at C.

Wall/44th
Beal/Satoransky
Porter/Meeks
Parker/Morris
Gortat/Mahinmi

Bucks already have Brogdon, Brown, Maker, they add Oubre, draft Lonnie Walker and Mitchell Robinson. It's an exciting core for Bud to work with and develop some possible future starters. They will also need an upgrade at C. They could force a trade using some of Bledsoe, Snell, Henson, Delly or use the full MLE for Dedmon.

Bledsoe/Brogdon/Delly
Snell/Walker/Brown
Middleton/Oubre
Giannis/Maker/Smith
Henson/Robinson

20 Jun 2018 04:05:03
Don’t like giving that’s much up for Parker with his injury history.

20 Jun 2018 21:32:42
You realize the draft is tomorrow, right?

19 Jun 2018 20:05:22
Portland offseason

Trade w/Bucks
Bucks get Harkless, Aminu, 18' 1st rounder
Blazers get Middleton, Jennings, save 3.2M cap space

Trade w/Kings
Kings get Turner, 19' 1st rounder
Blazers get Faried, save 4.2M cap space

Let all free agents go, clear up 13M more in cap space, putting you right around the cap.

Sign Rudy Gay to 3 years

Lineup
Lilliard, Jennings
McCollum, Baldwin
Middleton, Swanigan, Layman
Gay, Faried
Collins, Leonard

If you can swing it to resign Ed Davis and Rudy Gay, that'd be best, then you put Davis at starting C w/ Collins starting at Pf, Gay as 6th man.
Play with this lineup a few years, develop Collins and see what happens. In 3 yrs all you have left is lilliard, McCollum, Collins and Swanigan. If you want to hit reset button trade stars for draft picks then.

19 Jun 2018 20:14:16
That's a massive underpay. Middleton is probably one of the most underrated players in the league. Portland would need to add more.

19 Jun 2018 20:22:17
You're not getting Middleton for that. The Bucks aren't actively shopping him and he's probably the one player on that roster that is an ideal fit next to Giannis.

I also don't see that being enough to move salary this summer in the Turner deal. Few teams have cap and plenty of teams want to move it. Also, Faried is on the Nuggets and they're trying to move him to save money.

19 Jun 2018 20:37:33
No from Milwaukee, can’t trade two consecutive firsts and Denver would say no anyway. You’re name suggests why you came up with this post, and why you think it’s reasonable.

19 Jun 2018 20:37:47
Middleton like Giannis is pretty much untouchable! I believe Milwaukee will pass.

19 Jun 2018 20:42:19
That Bucks trade is really awful. Also hoy do with trade Faried with Kings?

19 Jun 2018 21:09:54
@milpso I had same question.

20 Jun 2018 03:01:16
How did faried make it to the kings was my question.

18 Jun 2018 11:36:43
MEM-MIL

MEM: J.Parker + 17th pick

MIL: C.Parsons + 4th pick + 32nd pick

18 Jun 2018 11:49:44
I like this for both teams, not sure Milwaukeefans would want C Parsons contract, but he would also be a good fit in that team.

18 Jun 2018 16:00:42
How healthy parsons is will be a deciding factor. Teams will definitely due some due diligence with physicals and stuff.

18 Jun 2018 09:21:09
Lakers got 61 to spend. If they stretch Deng they have 72 mil after they announce all free agents and will have 12 mil cap hold with 60 mil left if they want randle but here there keeping him.

Sign James and George 28 each. With 4 left for Noel. Mle on reddick for four years 34 mil. Signn randle to whatever it takes.
Ball
Reddick
George
James
Noel
Kuzma randle Hart and Ingram would be a strong bench.

Or rid randle use the 16 mil on Avery Bradley. Use mle on Evans for years 34 mil. Sign Noel with the other 4.4 exception.
Ball
Bradley
George
James
Noel
With Evans Hart Ingram and kuzma off bench would slaughter golden state. I would like to see Ball handle the rock and see how much king James can score. With shooters like Bradley and George. And a rebounder like Noel. Ball can guard Klay while Bradley chases around Curry. With George putting good d on Durant. James can relax on d guarding green with Noel on there starting center.

So this requires no trades just there willingness to sign with this great situation. That's y there so much speculation with Lakers because they can sign all the players to create a team that would beat golden state. With James and George joining the Lakers with 16 left and mle would be better then the cavs And thunder

18 Jun 2018 09:36:13
Best possible scenario maybe if we can sign James and George on a discount but i don't think it would happen.

18 Jun 2018 12:40:41
Ingram averaged 16 say he can put up 14 off the bench plus kuzma doing the same. Plus Evans and Hart all caple of averaging 10 plus points off bench with James averaging 27 George averaging 24 plus Bradley 16 and ball like 12 and 8. Plus Noel 7 and 12. Plus have solid defenders, this team be Scary. Point is what more help would they need so no needforr james and George to take less then 28 that is a discount.

18 Jun 2018 15:25:15
noel 4 mil and Reddick MLE, what are you talking about.

18 Jun 2018 19:59:48
Lebron and PG are not taking paycuts to play with guys that have only been in the league for a couple seasons and haven't proven anything. Either way, the math is way off on this one. If you have cap room, you do not get the full MLE worth 8 mill/ season. You will get a room mle for 4.3 mill/ season for 2 years tops.

18 Jun 2018 02:36:42

Pg Westbrook/Grant/Payne
Sg LaVine/Nwaba
Sf James/Kilpatick

18 Jun 2018 04:40:14
the bulls would have to add markannen as well bc Dunn isn't super promising and his work ethic is questioned. maybe lavine would get it done instead but i like the idea.

17 Jun 2018 11:23:38
LAL - SAS - MIL

This is based on Spurs not taking Deng's contract or Ball, so Lakers need a third team to make Leonard, George, James happen. Milwaukee can be that team, because of Lebron's buddy Bledsoe.

Lakers get Leonard, Bledsoe

Spurs get Ingram, Kuzma, 25th LAL, Dellavedova (or Henson)

Bucks get Ball, Deng, 47th LAL

Lakers will be at 101 mil after that having Bledsoe, Leonard, George (29mil), James (34mil), Zubac, Hart. So they do it.

Spurs assuming that LAL's best offer would be Ingram, Kuzma, Deng, 25th, here they avoid Deng by taking an overpaid but servicable player from the Bucks.

Bucks take a pg that fits better to Middleton and Giannis. Ball had 7.2 ast, 6.9 reb which they need more than 5.1 ast and 3.9 reb of better scoring Bledsoe. Don't forget that Lonzo is still rookie, so at least he will shoot like Bledsoe in time. Bucks eat 36 Deng's mil, but they also move 20 mil of their own bad salary

17 Jun 2018 14:22:09
I don't believe Milwaukee would want the "Ball Circus", Plus, Why would the Bucks get rid of 20 Mil of their own bad salary, Only to take on a worse salary of 36 Mil? I believe Milwaukee would pass on this idea.

17 Jun 2018 14:22:54
Spurs get Deng on trade or trade him to another team.

17 Jun 2018 15:38:20
@torque if Bud feels there is all star quality in Ball I'm ok with that trade. Bledsoe, Delly cost as much as Ball, Deng, 47th. We know Bledsoe's ceiling, if Bud is sure that he can make Lonzo's higher I take the circus. If Bucks can't trade for a third star next to Giannis and Middleton, they should try to make one instead of doing nothing.

17 Jun 2018 17:25:39
@milpso, I don't think anyone looks at Ball with "All Star" quality, Plus, who ant a non-starter (Deng) sitting on the bench paying him 36 Mil?, Yes, the Bucks do need to something, But, Ball and Deng are simply not the answer.

17 Jun 2018 18:01:06
RE, Wants, not "Ant"

16 Jun 2018 23:37:26
3 Team Blockbuster

Spurs / Middelton, Clarckson, Korver, Cedi Osman, Pick 8, unprotected 2021 first rounder Cavs

Bucks / Kawhi Leonard, pick 18 Kevin Love

Cavs
/ Gianni's Antetokounmpo

17 Jun 2018 01:24:55
Lmao 😂😂😂😂 funny.

17 Jun 2018 02:11:48
No way bucks take kawhi over giannis.

17 Jun 2018 03:28:24
Just no. I’d ask why the Bucks would consider that, but it’s easier to just say no.

17 Jun 2018 03:57:42
love+8 wouldn’t get u kawhi. let alone potentially the future goat.

17 Jun 2018 05:43:24
I would think that Giannis, and Middleton, are the only 2 "untouchable" players Milwaukee has. I believe they would pass.

16 Jun 2018 21:11:31
so this started as spurs getting kemba and phx ended up working as the 3rd team.

hornets get: t. chandler (exp), dudley (exp), josh jackson, future bucks 1st
spurs get: kemba, marvin williams, d. bender, pick 16
suns get: kawhi, p. mills

suns give up most of their assets but keep the number 1 pick (who should be doncic) if they plan to target a big in free agency (dmc, capela, dj)

16 Jun 2018 21:30:00
Spurs don't get enough for Kawhi.

16 Jun 2018 17:34:46
Cavs get Leonard and Bledsoe

Bucks get Clarkson and White and 18 pick

Spurs get 8th pick Love and Osman

Bucks wouldn't accept this if I was the Bucks but Spurs able to get a young player in Osman and as long as if they don't blow the 8th pick they should get another nice young player and Love can still shoot. Cavs get a good PG and Leonard.

16 Jun 2018 19:52:15
Spurs get screwed.

16 Jun 2018 20:50:01
spurs would be getting waxed even if they didn't give up the pick.

16 Jun 2018 16:00:14
SAS - LAL - MIL

Spurs get Parker (16mil, s/t with Leonard), Kuzma, Maker, Wilson, 17th MIL

Lakers get Bledsoe, Green, Brogdon

Bucks get Leonard, Ball, Deng

SAS do that because they don't want Leonard in the West and straight to LA. They are getting a similar deal to what Lakers would offer them. It's like replacing Ingram and 25th with Parker, Maker and 17th

LAL still sign King and George. They bring Lebron's buddy and make cap space to sign Leonard in 2019. In that they even keep Bledsoe with MLE (or Brogdon) and of course Ingram as 6th.

MIL gets Leonard without losing Middleton. They hope that in time they convince him stay. At least they enjoy one dream season with Ball, Middleton, Leonard, Antetokoumbo, Dedmon starting 5.

16 Jun 2018 16:42:01
Why wouldn't LA just cut out the Bucks. They give up probably the 2 most valuable players outside of Kawhi here. Also, you can't sign and trade along side other players. Parker can't legally be involved directly with the trade. I don't think LA would have much interest in Bledsoe either.

16 Jun 2018 16:56:36
I agree with rkeene, Plus, Why would the Bucks want the Ball circus?, PLUS Deng's contract? I also don't think Leonard would want to come to Milwaukee. I also would rather see LA and the Spurs work out that trade. Instead of going after Leonard, Milwaukee should be looking for a Center. (Lopez, Jordan, Dedmon, but Not Whiteside, Think Larry Sanders) The Bucks could also use a legit SF, While moving 6'8" Middleton back to SG.

16 Jun 2018 17:29:47
This is based on Pop not wanting to send KL straight to LA, so you can't cut out Bucks. It's a mid ground for everyone. Lakers do their Big 3 with one year delay, Bucks take advantage for one year superteam.
It can be done if you seperate the KL - Parker trade.

16 Jun 2018 18:42:54
No super team has ball or deng om it.

16 Jun 2018 01:58:29
Kawhi Leonard trades

Burke/Lee/THJ/Leonard/Porzingis

Spurs get - Middleton Maker Wilson and 17th
Bucks get - Kawhi and Green

Bledsoe/Green/Leonard/Giannis/Henson

Spurs get - Beal Smith Oubre and 2019 1st
Wizards get - Kawhi

Wall/Meeks/Leonard/Porter/Williams(15)

16 Jun 2018 05:06:27
i think the philly deal is most likely, bucks is intriguing though. and wiz shouldn't do that.

19 Jun 2018 15:53:16
Danny Green is past it and has little value. If he’s filler that’s one thing but he’s not a difference maker in these scenarios.

16 Jun 2018 00:55:21
Bucks get Kawhi

Spurs get 17th pick, Middleton and D.J Wilson

14 Jun 2018 22:08:41
I want to take a look at the 76er's current situation and how to get past the Celtics to the finals.

1. TRADE:
Magic Receive Jarryd Bayless and #26 OVR 2018 draft pick.

76ers receive #41 OVR 2018 draft pick.

Thinking: Sixers are able to unload 8.576 million from their salary cap situation to be able to accommodate a max contract. Meanwhile the Magic are able to add a shooter that is still only 29. He's expensive for this year, but only has one year on his contract. He's better than Fournier and only half the price. In return for the extra salary, they're moving up 15 spots in the draft.

TRADE:
Cavaliers Receive Picks 10, 38, and 41
76ers Receive Pick 8

Thinking: Cavaliers begin to realize Dan Gilbert doesn't have the best relations with LBJ. It seems like a low ball offer, but mind yourself that the Cavs and Sixers are looking for two separate Archetypes. The Cavs should not worry about the Sixers or Knicks taking their big man they have their eyes on (with Porzingis and Embiid). In return for dropping two spots, they're put back into round 2 with options for cheap role players. **If this trade can't be completed than that's ok. I was trying to get the Sixers into the top 7 for Doncic, MPJ, Bamba, or Trae Young.**

Free Agency: ~39.5 million
Picking Up Team Options on McConnell and Holmes (1.6 mil each)

Plan A: Lebron James: I'd throw money at LBJ in hopes he'd teach the team how to win and perform in crunch time. The shortcoming of the Sixers was having a player they could turn to in the last 5 minutes in the game to take over. The weakest part of the team was the final quarter and this would work to solve it.

Plan B: Avery Bradley and Aaron Gordon: With around 36 million dollars to play with, I'd first throw money towards Avery Bradley. I think he's a much better fit. I'd be perfectly fine throwing 18-22 million towards Avery. He is the elite perimeter defender that they can use to put on the opposing guards on the Celtics, Warriors, and Rockets. He's a HUGE upgrade over JJ Reddick for this reason. Notice the athletic/strong guards dictated the playoff series with Boston. My other move would be trying to pry away Aaron Gordon or Julius Randle (if you can't pry them away, at least make the Lakers and Magic pay a pretty penny). That's the other element I think the Sixers are missing. Aaron Gordon can slide right in with Dario as backup power forward. I'd be willing to throw the remaining money at him. If I can't come up with the cap space to sign Aaron, I'd flirt the market for the package of Covington and the #8 pick (looking to move into 3-6 range).

Possible Starting Line Up:
PG: Markelle Fultz
SG: Avery Bradley
SF: Ben Simmons/Robert Covington
PF: Ben Simmons/Dario Saric
C: Joel Embiid

6th Man: Aaron Gordon
7th Man: TJ McConnell


My final analysis is that this team would have the shooting in Markelle and Avery to offset the inside game of Embiid and Simmons. The defense would be versatile with Bradley, Covington, Simmons, and Embiid. The height and athleticism on the inside wouldn't be changing much, so rebounding is still near the top of the NBA (Aaron Gordon doesn't hurt either).

Let me know what you guys think (if you like it I might try to fix another team)!

15 Jun 2018 00:50:12
Okay a few things
1. Aaron Gordon would start
2. Avery Bradley is nowhere near worth 18-22 million a year! If it’s a 1yr 15m deal then that would be okay. But if it’s a multi-year deal, it should be about 3yr 30m.

15 Jun 2018 00:56:50
You max off gordon to bench him? Lol.

15 Jun 2018 03:34:06
My philosophy is to have him lead the second team. You can experiment with putting him in the first lineup, but medically I didn't want to push him. Let him get comfortable (and use that Philly medical system) to ensure he's healthy long term.

Also, talking contracts, I would be looking to front load them. Avery Bradley in my eyes is worth every penny of 18 million. See if he'd bite for a contract where we take half his total salary this year and spread the rest over the next two years for flexibility when resigning Simmons and Fultz.
