MIN/BNK Trade

MIN Receives: Caris Levert, Spencer Dinwiddie

Minnesota gets an upgrade at point guard over Jeff Teague and they also receive Caris levers who is young and a good scorer off the bench.

BNK Receives: Andrew Wiggins

The Nets need to start winning or their fanbase will begin to deplete. Wiggins will be the number 1 or 2 option in Brooklyn and thrive in that atmosphere.

24 Apr 2018 16:19:34
How is that an upgrade at pg? I'm not sure dinwiddle gets backup minutes in that lineup.

23 Apr 2018 17:17:49
Mavericks - Trail Blazers

Mavericks gets:
Turner
Leonard
24th pick
2019 2nd (Lakers or Timberwolves)
2021 2nd (Heat)

Trail Blazers gets:
Barnes

23 Apr 2018 20:13:25
If Portland could unload two bad contracts, pick up an above average SF, and only give up one first, I think they’d do cartwheels.

23 Apr 2018 00:20:47
Brooklyn gets: Andrew Wiggins

Minnesota gets: Demarre Carroll; 29th pick

23 Apr 2018 02:23:38
Come on! Yes, Wiggins is overrated, but a deal for an average player and a late first is just ridiculous. Ninny says no 11 out of 10 times.

23 Apr 2018 02:59:52
Minnesota would be asking for more. Wiggins is still a young player with star potential and is locked into the foreseeable future.

19 Apr 2018 02:29:59

26-Mitchell Robinson

38-Jevon carter

58-josh okogie

Sign a bunch of g league prospects,young players

19 Apr 2018 07:07:55
that is way, way too much for kevin love.
and the 2nd trade would be more fair if hill was the one being packaged with assets.
and that pick trade with chi is lopsided too.
smith and robinson will likely be gone by those stages of the draft also.
but nice try trying to danny ainge a chest of draft picks.

19 Apr 2018 12:25:40
If Minnesota wanted Hill, they would have signed him last year instead of Teague.

16 Apr 2018 21:12:45
Cavs off-season if Lebron leaves

Trade

The Cavs get Anderson, Noah, Ferguson, Burk, the 9th pick via NY, 2 future Houston 1sts and 2 2nds from the Thunder

The Knicks get Hill, Gordon, and Singler

The Thunder get Courtney Lee

Houston gets Lebron and Patterson

2nd trade

The Cavs get Brooks, Parsons, the 2nd overall pick, the 12th overall pick and the 2021 Memphis pick lottery protected

The Clippers get the 8th pick and Clarkson

The Grizzlies get Love, Lou Williams, and the 13 overall pick

3rd trade

Lakers get Smith (buyout, and Korver(buyout)

The Cavs get Deng and the Lakers 2020 1st lottery protected

4th trade

The Cavs get Dieng, Tyus Jones, and a 2nd

The Timberwolves get Ryan Anderson

Draft Doncic, Young and Knox

Let Hood walk

Pg Young/Jones/Burks
Sg Doncic/ Ferguson
SF Osman/Brooks/Deng
PF Knox/Dieng/Parsons
C Nance/Zizic/Noah

The roster would be at around 106 million, so it would be below the luxury tax and Deng, Parsons, and Noah can all be bought out after. Next season.

The Cavs would have 4 extra future 1sts

17 Apr 2018 00:49:22
Why let Hood walk? Just curious.

17 Apr 2018 21:17:17
I just don't see the Cavs being willing to pay luxury tax to keep him, if they're rebuilding.

14 Apr 2018 22:59:16
Hawks - Knicks

Hawks gets:
9th pick (Knicks)
2020 2nd rd pick (Hornets)
Noah

Knicks gets:
19th (Timberwolves)
30th (Rockets)
2019 1st rd pick (Cavs)

Hawks gets another lottery pick and take on Noah's final two year salary.

Knicks move back in the draft, get another first this year and get more cap space this summer.

15 Apr 2018 01:10:14
Take the future 1st out and swap the 30th for a 2nd and it's not bad.

15 Apr 2018 01:48:40
Hawks giving up too much value to take back Noahs guaranteed $38 million. Not even close.

15 Apr 2018 04:11:19
Y would knicks do this unless the swap noah for their center.

14 Apr 2018 17:30:25
Zach Randolph to Minnesota for pick 20

14 Apr 2018 17:54:47
Why would Minnesota do that? And they don't have the cap space to take on any player without giving one up.

14 Apr 2018 13:22:48
kawhi leonard trade offer

suns receives: kawhi leonard, patty mills

spurs receives: Josh Jackson, Dragan Bender, Tyler Ulis #15 and #17 pick (via miami and via bucks)

or

timberwolves receives: kawhi leonard, patty mills

spurs receives: tyus jones, justin patton, andrew wiggins and #23 (via thunder)

or

knicks receive: kawhi leonard

spurs receives: courtney lee, lance thomas, frank ntilikina #9 #37 (from knicks) and knicks 2019 1st rd pk lottery protected

what team leonard landed if not to celtics lakers and 76ers what to knicks, wolves and suns

14 Apr 2018 15:17:28
knicks trade can't happen. if the knicks trade the #9 pick this year, they can't trade their #1 next year, lottery protected or not. can't be without a #1 pick in consecutive years according to the rules.

14 Apr 2018 16:07:15
The 1st one is decent if the Suns want to roll the dice on an expiring Kawhi.

The 2nd isn't enough for the Spurs. I don't see the Spurs valuing Wiggins. Especially, now that he's going to be making north of 25 million. The pick and Jones are decent assets, but not enough to get Kawhi

I don't think the third is enough either. I think they would want more than 2 good assets, a future late pick and some savings.

It's funny that on a Kawhi trade I made yesterday giving up 2 Lottery picks, 3 propsects that are only like half a step down from Ntilikina, more savings for the Spurs plus 2 future 1sts, a high 2nd and 2 potetial pick swaps, you said that wasn't enough for Leonard, but then you offer up these trades. The only trade that you could even argue gives more is the Phoenix trade and that's only if you're really high on Jackson.

14 Apr 2018 16:31:42
The pick belongs to the Bucks because it fell into the protection slot for the Bucks.

14 Apr 2018 16:45:24
PHX doesn't have the Bucks pick. It was protected, and stays with the Bucks this season.

14 Apr 2018 19:38:43
What team does Kawhi want to go to because he is just a rental otherwise can’t see him staying in Phoenix.

14 Apr 2018 20:29:50
Chriss, ulis, Miami first, + either bucks future first, or Miami future first.

12 Apr 2018 16:48:47
ATL: Bazemore + 1st rd pick MIN

for

MIN: Wiggins.

12 Apr 2018 18:17:55
Salaries don't match. Before or after Wiggins 24 mil kicks in.

12 Apr 2018 18:59:24
Salaries don't have to matchif you have room to absorb a contract. Even so, bazemores 19m + pick apx 2m is within the 120%.

12 Apr 2018 19:16:35
My mistake, It would work if after their next season deals kick in. ATL falls way below cap. (70m) Their salaries are aprox. 6m apart after Wiggins, and Bazemore deals kick in, but because ATL is taking in more it wouldn't be a problem. Gain an exception. ATL essentially draft for MIN. Interesting. Good way for MIN to move on from Wigs if that's their plan.

12 Apr 2018 19:21:17
MIN would get the exception.

12 Apr 2018 19:56:37
I think it takes a little more.

12 Apr 2018 20:30:59
Atlanta should trow in a little extra.

13 Apr 2018 01:02:19
How about Atlanta keep the pick, and do Wiggins for Bazemore and Prince?

Rumor had it Atlanta was willing to move Prince at the deadline.

Instead of getting a first and drafting another rookie, they get guy who can help now. Butler, Bazemore, and Prince would be a pretty good defensive group on the wing, with some versatility with Prince able to play PF as well. Then, with their 1st from OKC, they can draft either a combo guard or 3 point shooter.

13 Apr 2018 04:26:04
I like it. Minnesota gets a well-rounded wing and a mid-first pick. Atlanta gets a solid scorer to build around.

13 Apr 2018 05:34:33
Prince would be ideal for MIN defensively.

12 Apr 2018 15:50:43
Pelicans-TWolves

Pels get Wiggins

Wolves get Hill,Clark, 2019 1st

12 Apr 2018 17:22:45
I guess no cousins re-sign then.

12 Apr 2018 17:29:11
Like the idea but it will be hard for both side to execute it.

12 Apr 2018 17:42:13
Salaries don't match.

10 Apr 2018 22:55:14
The Grizzlies get Pau Gasol, Wiggins, Mills, Murray, Forbes and an 18 Spurs 1st

The Spurs get Teague and Gasol

The Timberwolves get Conley and Danny Green

11 Apr 2018 00:20:32
rkennen_16 i agree good trade for 3 team spurs get teague and much younger gasol without giving leonard. wolves get wing and 3 d green and pg. but i don't see mills and murray leaving with spurs but forbes can trade he's FA this offseason.

11 Apr 2018 01:07:35
I think the elder Gasol will retire in the off season.

12 Apr 2018 22:44:40
And how do the Timberwolves afford that? Lose jimmy for Conley? They already have a ok overpriced pg in teague I know Conley’s better but this is dumb!

13 Apr 2018 03:43:52
Teague and Wiggins together will make 45 million. Green and Conley make rougjhlu 45 millio.

10 Apr 2018 20:46:11
The Cavs get Deandre Jordan, Danny Green, Rudy Gay and Patrick Beverly

Give up the Brooklyn 1st, Clarkson, Zizic Osman, Smith, Korver, and Thompson



The Spurs get Smith(buyout), Gibson(buyout), Maranovich(waive)Cole Aldrich (waive) Thompson, Wiggins, Tyus Jones, Osman, the Brooklyn, Detroit, Clippers, thunder 18 picks, and a Cavs, Timberwolves and Clippers 2nd

Give up Gay, Green, Leonard, Aldridge, Gasol, and Mills



The Timberwolves get Aldridge, Tobias Harris, Korver, and Mills

Give up Wiggins, Aldrich, Gibson, Tyus Jones, and thunder 18 1st


The Clippers get Kawhi, Clarkson, Zizic, and Gasol

The Clippers give Jordan, Harrison, Marnojvic, Beverly, the Detroit 18 and Clippers 18



The Cavs build an elite defense to go with their good offense

The Clippers get Kawhi to build around and get back to the playoffs

Minnesota gets rid of the Wiggins Headache and while they get a little older Harris and Aldridge may be better than Wiggins right now. Plus, they add some much needed depth as long as Thibs is willing to use it.

The Spurs sell off all of their older assets in one trade. They get 3 lottery picks this year, plus 2 more 1sts this year, a 22 year old potential star. And they Open up 40 million extra dollars next year. Plus they get a guy they were interested in over the summer in Osman and Tyus Jones who seems like a guy Pop could build Into something, They can tank next year for another high pick. Then use what would be potentially 70 plus million to get back to winning the year after and with all the young talent they would have the program can flourish even after Pop.

11 Apr 2018 01:16:21
rkenne_16 your trade is super unrealistic i feel bad for spurs giving up their all player gay green leonard aldrigde gasol and mills? for unsense return poor man spurs is in playoffs race and i'm not seeing they need to fully rebuild? haha so funny bro you want to give up their all player? you want to giveup two of their all star leonard and aldrigde and no all star in return funny bro i don't care if i have 3 picks this upcoming draft if i don't have all star in returns and you want to buyout gibson and waive Maranovich i think gibson and maranovich much better to tristan thompson i rather waive or buyout tristan thompson rather than maranovich and gibson spurs don't want to swallow tristan thompson

10 Apr 2018 16:33:36
Heat/Timberwolves Trade:

Heat Receive: Andrew Wiggins

Andrew Wiggins will be the main ball handler in Miami and and the Heat will finally get their "star" player. Wiggins will be happier which will likely improve his overall play.

Timberwolves Receive: Josh Richardson, Justice Winslow, James Johnson, future second rounders

The Timberwolves get Josh Richardson who had a really good season last year, Justice Winslow who still has some potential to be a very good defender and James Johnson who's athletic and a good leader+veteran.

10 Apr 2018 16:53:12
No from Miami,

10 Apr 2018 18:46:16
Miami is supposedly interested in Wiggins and that would be a steal for him even with his flaws.

10 Apr 2018 05:46:49
Cavs - Twolves

Cavs receive: Wiggins

Twolves receive: Pick 7, Smith, Thompson, '21 top 10 protected 1st, '19 & '20 seconds, cash to go towards Smith buyout

10 Apr 2018 07:42:26
MIN should do this, but I don't see the CAVS doing it.

10 Apr 2018 23:04:48
Hard pass for the Cavs. They don't have trouble scoring and that is the only thing that Wiggins does reasonably well.

12 Apr 2018 15:48:29
I have to agree. that's a lot to give up for Cavs.

10 Apr 2018 05:38:00
Twolves - Suns

Suns receive: Wiggins, Dieng
Twolves receive: Warren, Dudley, Bender, Ulis, Pick 16

Suns: Payton, Booker, Wiggins, Jackson, Aynton

Twolves gain cost controlled assets, mid-tier starter who won't demand the ball as much as Wiggins, an expiring, and they get out of the 48m they owe Dieng

10 Apr 2018 05:53:40
I like it for the Wolves, not so much for the Suns.

10 Apr 2018 07:44:22
I'd start Jackson over Wiggins probably too.

08 Apr 2018 05:09:06
Lebron leaves

Kevin love to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins and okc 1st

08 Apr 2018 05:50:03
I'd take my chances with Wiggins. Love is the better player, but Wiggins is 22. Room to improve, and who knows what the pick will return in 4 seasons when Love will be nearly retired.

08 Apr 2018 16:02:37
Why I think ninny will take this trade is because ther in win now mode a Andrew Wiggins hasn’t been that good with jimmy butler.

08 Apr 2018 16:41:39
Jorga, I think the question is if Wiggins will ever become a winning player. He puts up big stats, but he's barely a plus on the offensive end and he's a black hole on defense. It also seems that most of his problems from his rookie year are the same problems he has now. If he ever puts it together he could be good, but 4 years in, I think it's safe to say that he may end up being nothing more than a bulk scorer. He's a poor mans Melo.

08 Apr 2018 18:10:42
Win now mode? They were lottery last season. This is their first year on a winning track. Could still be a lottery team this season. KAT is Young, Wiggins is Young, OKC pick? Love will be done by age 35 likely, maybe hang on for 2 more. MIN because of Butler and Gibson, and Teague need to add more vets? Why not add young guys to a winning culture? Wiggins is 22 could still improve. Bad deal for MIN, great for CLE.

07 Apr 2018 19:09:06
Minnesota gets Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson.

Sacramento gets Andrew Wiggins.


Minnesota gets Hield, who will be a better fit next to Butler, and Jackson, who could be a nice role player off the bench. Also saves cap space.

Sacramento gets a potential star player in Wiggins, who can also be their go to scorer (something they lack). Also keep own 1st round pick to add another potential star.

04 Apr 2018 12:21:27
I think East are all set now for playoffs..
Raptors, Celtics, Cavaliers, Sixers
Pacers, Wizards, Bucks, and Heat

West lockup teams: Rockets, Warriors and Blazers
Its up to these 7 teams fighting for 5 spots left:
Spurs, Thunder, Wolves, Jazz, Pelicans, Nuggets and Clippers

06 Apr 2018 00:54:19
Thanks, Captain Obvious.

01 Apr 2018 11:06:05
The Knicks get Wiggins

The Timberwolves get Hardaway, Lee, the Knicks 18 1st and a Knicks 2nd

For the Twolves, Hardaway can come in and give them 80% of what Wiggins did on offense, won't mind being the third option, and is a better defender than Wiggins (though one of those flaying inflatable men at a car wash would be better than Wiggins on that end). They can use the pick to either get their pg of the future or to find a pf that fits well next to KAT. Lee would provide some much needed depth as long as Thibs is willing to use him.

For the Knicks, they get an offensive star that will lesson the attention on and workload of KP.

01 Apr 2018 13:50:28
I really like this trade


Hardaway isn't that much off a downgrade and they get a great asset back. Maybe the Wolves can draft Young or Sexton.

And NY is a great destination for Wiggins. Zinger can spread the floor for Wiggins, who can be the main ball handler for the Knicks. And Wiggins was a great defender in college, so maybe he will start playing defense again, when he's the first scoring option.

01 Apr 2018 16:16:19
Wiggins never played good defense. His nba career is a far larger sample size. He costs a heck of a lot more. He is clearly a diva. He has no range.

Straight up I’d probably prefer Hardaway at this point over Wiggins because Wiggins is not worth what, 25% of the teams cap? On top you want the Knicks to give up a solid starting 2. A top ten pick in a loaded draft. And a second rounder?

Knicks management would all be fired and blacklisted for this nonsense.

01 Apr 2018 17:28:49
They wouldn't be fired, this has a Dolan move written all over it!

I swear, the day he eventually sells the team, during his final press conference he's going to rip open his shirt and have a Celtics one underneath. In a WWE style heal turn, he'll announce that he bought the Knicks with the express plan of ruining them for as long as he was around.

01 Apr 2018 17:31:00
Hardaway is at least proving he is worth the money. I agree with hamburger that this is not a good deal for the Knicks although they could pull the trigger on this based on how they want a young guy like Wiggins to team up with Zinger.

01 Apr 2018 19:07:32
This another attempt from miserable cav fan who knows they won't win and won't keep LeBron next yr. Knicks won't bail them out again.

01 Apr 2018 20:40:35
I'm not sure what me being a Cavs fan has to do with this trade Shizzee? How is this trade helping or hurting the Cavs? Especially if Lebron leaves?

01 Apr 2018 23:27:40
Yeah. That Cavs fan comment is confusing. And horrible grammar.

Stick to posting the same unrealistic trades everyday. Trash talk ain’t your forte.

02 Apr 2018 01:07:29
What do NY fans think they can get for Lee, Hardaway and a late lottery pick? It's a loaded draft and the top 7 is strong, but i don't think Bridges is going to be an all star. Wiggins van be a great scorer for NY and he could become an all star.

02 Apr 2018 05:41:31
Gasupo, I don't look at this as a great package that the Knicks are giving up, I look at it as taking on a player who's style is not conducive to winning, and paying him $147 million over the next five seasons. That is far too much to sink into a one dimensional guy, no matter how good he is at that one thing. He doesn't shoot the 3 at a league average clip, averages 4 boards a game despite his athleticism, and if you look at THJ's numbers, they are very similar this year, and there is nearly $95 million less left on his contract than what is owed Wiggins.

I don't think you give up a top 10 pick and two solid players for a guy who will eat up a lot of Cap Space, and who you will have about as much success with as you did Melo.

02 Apr 2018 10:30:05
@Triangle

Ok, i get your point.

02 Apr 2018 14:15:15
Echoing what triangle said. I wrote specifically he coats a heck of a lot more. Why commit a quarter or more of the cap to an inefficient scorer who brings little else to the game.

31 Mar 2018 15:04:50
Rumor had it that Pat Riley might be interested in aquiring Andrew Wiggins. If Minnesota was interested in moving Wiggins, what would a trade look like?

I can't see Minnesota wanting Whiteside or either Johnson, and I don't think Miami can trade a future 1st for several years.

I think Richardson and Winslow would interest Minnesota.

What do you think?

31 Mar 2018 15:51:26
Without a third team, it's hard to imagine a trade that works for both teams.
