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.

26 Mar 2019 13:20:35
Portland gets: Robert Covington

Minnesota get: Meyers Leonard ; 2019 1st; 2021 1st.

26 Mar 2019 13:57:04
Great for wolves but kinda overpay.

26 Mar 2019 18:10:13
Two late 1st round picks for one of the best 3 and D guys in the NBA. Minnesota passes. This does absolutely nothing to help Minnesota.

26 Mar 2019 19:21:13
Throw Dieng into the deal after Nurkic injury, POR can cover the Offense loss, but not the Defense in the post at the rim.

Covington
Dieng

Turner
M. Lenrd
G. Trent
'19 1st
'20 1st

Wolves want Wiggins, and Dieng gone, not Covington, so it will cost.

26 Mar 2019 19:40:25
Carl006- wolves are rebuilding. Rico will not be on their roster for their next playoff game. They need too much help.

26 Mar 2019 20:10:02
I can’t imagine giving up two firsts for a solid role player. Especially when Portland likely just had their 2019-2020 season ruined yesterday.

26 Mar 2019 22:57:56
Well this trade can’t happen this season anyway. It could help trailblazers next season.

Too High Garland Bol Grimes and Hayes

Too Low White Little Fernando and Alexander

Or else it's perfect 😁.

19 Mar 2019 08:07:32
Spurs trade up for Little? Package their 2 1st rounders to move up?

19 Mar 2019 09:12:17
God, I so hope the Knicks end up out of the Williamson sweepstakes. Just to pick off all Knicks fans. Lol.

19 Mar 2019 11:19:49
Still irving is leaving to the knicks. And Davis won't join either. Puke green is done 🤣.

19 Mar 2019 14:04:24
Hahaha. laugh it up now Shizzee. You'll be puking in your mouth when the Celts trade for Davis and resign Kyrie. L.

19 Mar 2019 18:04:41
You’ll both be upset when the Cavs get Zion!

19 Mar 2019 22:04:04
I would be upset if cavs get him, not Phoenix though.

17 Mar 2019 02:35:29
1) Portland-NO-Detroit
NO: D Lillard

Detroit: Jr Holiday

Portland: Jackson+ Leuer+ 1rnd pick NO+ 1rnd pick Detroit+ 1rnd pick NO 2020

2)Portland- Wolves

Wolves: Mccollum

Portland: Teague+ 1rnd pick Wolves+ 1rnd pick Wolves 2020

17 Mar 2019 03:41:51
Portland not trading Lillard unless he requested it.

11 Mar 2019 16:45:14
Twolves get - Bazemore (exp) Thompson (exp) and Sexton + Cle trade exception(Dekker)
- Draft Kelvin Johnson
Cavs get - Wiggins
- Draft Ja Morant
Hawks get - Dieng and Okogie
- Draft Little and Hayes

11 Mar 2019 17:32:05
Wiggins is a bad nba player making the max. Why would the Cavs trade Sexton for him. Sexton is a rookie putting up almost the same numbers as Wiggins.

12 Mar 2019 01:53:06
Cavs can draft morant and trade season for something better maybe too the suns.

12 Mar 2019 07:19:04
Who on the Suns can they get better than Wiggins? Sexton can’t get Booker or Ayton and someone else on their roster is better than Wiggins.

12 Mar 2019 16:57:06
Anyone is better than Wiggins. He’s awful and his contract is even worse. He would take multiple firsts just to move off of. He’s one of the worst defenders in the league and hasn’t improved over his career on that end. He’s an extremely inefficient scorer and his offense has trended down. He gives you nothing other than that inefficient offense and you’re stuck with him making the max for the next 4 years max. The Cavs would be better off trading Sexton for nothing than getting Wiggins.

10 Mar 2019 19:17:46
The Warriors get Wiggins, Dieng, Saric, Okogie and Covington

The Timberwolves get Ball, Igoudala(expiring), Livingston(expiring), Evans, Jones, Mckinnie, and 20 million in immediate savings

The Lakers get Draymond

The Warriors try to build a good young supporting cast around Klay and Steph assuming that Durant is gone. Saric, Okogie and Covington seem like they would thrive in the Warriors system. Dieng gives them some big man depth. The Warriors are one of the few franchises that could possibly save Wiggins from himself.

The wolves just scrap everything to build around KAT. The roster has so much dead weight. They are probably better off just getting off what they can even if it means they have to over pay some mid level free agents. Ball and KAT fit well together.

The Lakers desperately need a star next to Lebron and it looks like it's going to be hard to get. Draymond isn't exactly a star, but he's in the mold of the guys they said they wanted with Lebron before the season. I also think having a guy that is willing to clap back at Lebron might be a good thing for the Lakers.

10 Mar 2019 19:53:27
This is bad, like really bad, for Minnesota.

10 Mar 2019 19:58:58
I would be really surprised if they don't offer Durant good money, and he'd turn it down if they did. 1st season in a new building that the title run built, in a new more wealthy city. Seems like a good spot to be in, but I don't really know, so if they lose this could very well happen. I don't think Green is a huge problem other than money, if they sign Klay and Durant. If Durant goes I'd deadline trade Green if team performance was poor up to that point. Maybe even consider signing Cousins reasonably.

11 Mar 2019 00:29:25
Ball gets Draymond Green?

11 Mar 2019 04:57:37
Carl, what is the ceiling of a team with Covington as it’s 2nd best player. They have 2 years to build a winner around KAT and they don’t have very much flexibility right now. Saric, Okoge and Covington are nice players, but they’re no where close to being the star they need next to KAT. Wiggins and Dieng are both horrible contracts.

Fredman, Ball and 10 million in cap space. Draymond has been pretty down this year, he’s been trending down the past few years, he’s volatile, you’ll have to max him out, and he could walk. He doesn’t have a ton of value right now.

11 Mar 2019 14:08:36
And with Ball as their 2nd best player (along with the circus his Dad brings), KAT will want out before training camp.

09 Mar 2019 21:26:06
Celtics Offseason Moves
Let Kyrie walk
Sign and trade terry rozier, robert williams, kings pick (12-14) for Deangelo Russel

Trade with T Wolves
Al Horford, Jaylen Brown, grizzlies pick (either 9 in 2019 or 2020 pick), clippers 15th overall pick, celtics pick
Get Karl Anthony Towns

Trade- Gordon Hayward, Marcus Smart, Semi Ojelye, Celtics 2020 first, Celtics 2020 second

Get Bradley Beal, Ian Mahimi

Sign Deandre Jordan to a back ended deal (remember Tatum is getting payed 6 mil per year)

Celtics Starting Lineup
D Russel
Beal
Tatum
KAT
DJ

10 Mar 2019 03:23:55
And Minnesota does that why?

10 Mar 2019 04:10:22
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.

25 Feb 2019 00:22:38
Nets Of season moves

1) Nets- Wolves
Nets: Saric+covington
Wolves: 1rnd pick Denver+ Dinwidie

Nets draft:Bol Bol or J Porter
2nd round: T Jerome

Resign Russell 120M for 4 years
Q-offer for Hollins Jefferson
E Davis 6M for 1 year

Sign R Bullock 36M for 3 years
Sign T Young 20M for 1 year


C: J Allen/Bol Bol/ E Davis
PF: Saric/ Young
SF: covington/J Harris/ Hollins-Jefferson
SG:LeVert/Bullock/Crabbe
PG:Russell/Napier/T Jerome

25 Feb 2019 06:49:37
Why would the Wolves do that?

25 Feb 2019 11:01:59
I believe Dinwidie fits the Wolves system, he's a great pointguard that can play next to Wiggins and KAT.
Wolves are stuck with Wiggins, so they need to make him better.

25 Feb 2019 13:44:34
Gasupo- canyon they draft a pg and keep roco n saric?

25 Feb 2019 15:10:39
They can, but Saric is going to be a free agent in 2020 and going to ask for big money.
Dinwidie is on a friendley contract and they get an extra draft pick
Wolves could draft: D Hunter and K Porter two prospects on friendley contracts for years.

24 Feb 2019 23:01:43
Spurs - Wiggins
Wolves - Derozan

- Spurs let Pop coach and teach Wiggins
- Wolves get a shorter contract. Older but better player

Spurs - Turner(exp) Collins and 2nd
Blazers - Aldridge

-Spurs save money and add young prospect
- Blazers get LA back to strengthen the team

Spurs draft - KZ Okpala and PJ Washington

Murray/White
Walker/Forbes
Wiggins/Okpala
Collins/Washington
Poeltl/Gasol

25 Feb 2019 00:05:22
So the Spurs give up a good player to get a bad player?

25 Feb 2019 02:29:02
Seems like a really low sell on Derozan.

I’d take that trade if I’m Portland without a doubt.

21 Feb 2019 18:18:18
If Washington could move up in the draft.


Wolves: Beal

Was: Teague+Covington+ 1rnd pick Wolves+ 1rnd pick 2021 and 2023

Was draft: Reddish and Langford

21 Feb 2019 22:05:16
Way too much for Minnesota to pay.

20 Feb 2019 09:56:59
Chicago seems enamored with Andrew Wiggins. They have tried to acquire him several times. So, he is a trade that gets him to Chicago that helps both teams.

Chicago gets Wiggins and Minnesota's 2019 1st

Minnesota gets LaVine, Hutchinson, and Memphis' 2nd round pick that Chicago owns

Chicago gets they player they have wanted and can pair him with Porter to give Chicago great length on the wing while getting another 1st round pick for their rebuild.

Minnesota gets back LaVine, who is a better shooter and is on a better contract than Wiggins. Hutchinson adds depth to the wing for Minnesota.

20 Feb 2019 12:04:55
Traded for porter already.

20 Feb 2019 13:26:35
Wiggins has always played better at SG.

20 Feb 2019 14:50:04
I don't see the logic in trading Levine for Wiggins. you even stated Levine is a better shooter and on a better contract. If they're going after him i could see it being something along the lines of Dunn, Feliciano, Hutchinson and protected future 1st (or two 2nds) . Levine, Wiggins, Porter Jr, Markkanen, Carter, plus top pick in this years draft. Gives them a lot of talent and flexibility. Levine plays better at the 1.

20 Feb 2019 16:10:46
Wiggins has played at SG a few times this season and they lost every game. Boylen would run him out of town faster than Parker.

20 Feb 2019 16:40:59
Wiggins has played a lot of SG when Covington has been healthy. And I think the Wolves won more than they lost.

20 Feb 2019 16:49:40
Wiggins is bad and expensive. The only way he gets traded is if the Wolves take on a lot of bad salary or give up picks. They aren’t getting anything positive back in a Wiggins trade.

20 Feb 2019 17:31:00
Wiggins good games don't translate into wins at any position. What his starting position is listed @ and what positions he occupies during games is a skewed stat carl006. Team totals and garbage time included is another one often not separated defined.

20 Feb 2019 17:42:28
Carlos wiggens is worth 15 mil not 20 definitely not worth 30.

17 Feb 2019 19:20:05
After Harrison Barnes opts into his final year.

Kings trade Harrison Barnes + 2020 2nd rounder (either Miami or Detroit)

Minnesota trades Georgi Dieng and Robert Covington.

17 Feb 2019 20:38:23
Why would Minnesota do that?

17 Feb 2019 21:49:33
Frees themselves out of a ton of future salary.

18 Feb 2019 03:30:44
A ton of future salary? Covington plays way better than his money. And Dieng is only making $8 million more total for 2 years over Barnes' 1 year.

14 Feb 2019 16:12:28
Wiggins and wolves pick for Booker.

14 Feb 2019 16:42:20
If wolves pick was barrett.

14 Feb 2019 15:52:44
1) Minny -Memphis

Memphis: Wiggins

Minny: Conley

2) Minny- Orlando
Minny: Fournier+ Augsutin
Orlando: Teague+ 1rnd pick Wolves

Wolves
C: KAT
PF: Saric
SF: Covington
SG:Fournier
PG:Conley

14 Feb 2019 16:49:00
Sorry, Fournier is not worth a lottery pick.

14 Feb 2019 18:12:46
Add chandler and Teague too make it fair.

14 Feb 2019 00:56:58
Boston, plan B

S&T

1)NY-Indy-Boston
NY: Irving

Indy: G Hayward+ Ntilikina

Boston: (Evans+ Bogdanovic+ C Joseph)+ 2rnd pick NY 2020

2)Boston-Orlando
boston: Vucevic
Orlando: Horford+ 1rnd pick Clippers

3)Boston- Minnesota
Boston: Saric
Minny:Yabusele+1rnd pick Boston 2019+ 2rnd pick NY 2020+ 2rnd pick Atlanta 2019

Draft:
Sac pick: Darius Garland
sign: Bogdanovic
resign: T Rozier

Roster
C: Vucevic/R williams
PF: Saric/Theis/ Oyeleye
SF: Tatum/ Bogdanovic
SG:J Brown/M Smart/RJ Hunter
PG: T Rozier/ Garland/Wanamaker

14 Feb 2019 01:59:35
The first trade can’t happen.

14 Feb 2019 02:43:43
Why wouldn’t the Knicks just sign him straight up and keep the pick and frank?

14 Feb 2019 05:49:50
The Magic trade is impossible. The deadline has passed and Vucevic is an UFA in the off-season.

11 Feb 2019 16:46:46
Most likely to happen? Even if some sounds stupid or delusional :) next season

Sample

1. Kings and Cousins reunion. Cousins signs a 4yrs max contract

Pg Fox
Sg Hield
Sf Barnes
Pf Bagley
Ce Cousins

this team can make noise

2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think?)

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines.

6. Durant goes to Lakers :)

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again

8. Suns sign Kemba & one more big time free agent

9. Spurs trade Derozan

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West

11. Mitchell & Doncic become all stars

12. Dwayne Wade comes back

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach

14. Lillard or McCollum trade

15. NYK playoffs

11 Feb 2019 18:40:17
1. I Don't see it happening


2. The Clippers seem to have the assets to pull off a trade, that wouldn't be shocking at all. No chance he resigns in NO.

3. I could see that happening.

4. I think Houston would do anything. They run things very unemotionally. Maybe Orlando makes a bid if they re-sign Vuc? Nos sure they have what Houston would want, but they're someone that would try.

5. Feels very likely.

6. 0% chance. He wouldn't join another team to be called a coward. It's a lowly team that needs him like the Knicks, or it's back to GS.

7. AGAIN! Yep, they jump the Knicks and get Zion.

8. I don't see it. Maybe a big offer sheet player, but not an established all star.

9. The Spurs could do anything. Trading Derozan is definitely on the table.

10. This already happened? They're the third worst team in the west right now.

11. If both of these guys don't make it to 4+ all star games, I'd be surprised.

12. Nah, not after the tour he's had.

13. He'd be a hoooooorible coach. Too much of a perfectionist and too much ego to coach.

14. McCollum: 33%, Lillard: 0%

15. 2025?

11 Feb 2019 19:36:40
5 is the most likely to happen. But I am looking at "no one" as being "no star player". I can see Tyreke Evans signing a short term one year deal.

11 Feb 2019 20:43:40
Right Fredman, I was assuming no one meant no star.

11 Feb 2019 22:58:55
Rise ain't st as ying healthy.

11 Feb 2019 23:26:48
2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard I wish but no to staying even w extension. Clips only hyave shot if Ainge gets weak

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs nope

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think? ) Possible

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines. I'd love to see it but unlikely

6. Durant goes to Lakers :) maybe

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again Nope 1 outta 3 shot

8. Suns sign Kemba and one more big time free agent El Paso says Kemba

9. Spurs trade Derozan Good shot

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West Or at least close

11. Mitchell and Doncic become all stars Over time yes

12. Dwayne Wade comes back Why ask?

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach Nahhh

14. Lillard or McCollum trade L= Nope M =YEPP

15. NYK playoffs Within 3 years.

07 Feb 2019 16:12:24
Cleveland-Minnesota idea

Cleveland gets Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota's 2019 1st and 2021 1st

Minnesota gets JR Smith, Jordan Clarkson, and Houston's 2019 1st

Cleveland takes a chance on the player they originally drafted, while improving on their 2nd 2019 1st, add another future 1st, and trade away a guy who doesn't want to be there.

Minnesota saves a ton of cap space (Smith in only partially guaranteed for next year) while still getting a useful player in Clarkson and still having a 2019 1st.

07 Feb 2019 16:33:06
Minnesota's picks lottery protected?

07 Feb 2019 16:38:36
Pretty solid for the Cavs as long as both of those picks are protected in a way that they actually convey no matter what. I like it for Minnesota as well, if they’re looking to add some capspace and to get rid of Wiggins.

07 Feb 2019 18:20:15
Cavs already have 1 overpaid players who doesn't play defense. Wiggens has bigger contract that Love. Please don't ruin cavs franchise.

07 Feb 2019 19:53:19
Shizzee- subtract lebron years and that franchise is ruined.

05 Feb 2019 06:02:16
Miami trades Whiteside and Richardson

Kings trade Randolph, Schumpert, Skal Labrisierre, 2019 2nd rounder (Minnesota), $11 mil in current cap space.

Deal get Miami below the luxury tax line for 2019.

05 Feb 2019 05:50:39
Lakers get Davis and Ross

Magic get Ball

Kings get Hill and Lakers 2019 1st

NO gets KCP, Kuzma, Ingram, Koufus, Hart, Wagner/ Zubac, OKC 2020 1st (from Orl) and Lakers 2021 1st, Minnesota 2019 2nd (from Sac), 2020 Lakers 2nd

Just an addition to the much discussed Lakers-Pelicans deal whereby Ball gets moved to Orlando and Hill is salary dumped on the Kings.

04 Feb 2019 22:31:49
Lakers get - Davis and Clark
Suns get - Ball
Twolves get - KCP and Miller
Pelicans get - Kuzma Ingram Zubac Teague Jackson 2 Lakers 1st and Suns 2nd

Rondo
Hart
James
Davis
Mcgee

Ball
Booker
Oubre
Warren
Ayton

Rose
Wiggins
Covington
Saric
Towns

Teague
Holiday
Ingram/Jackson
Kuzma
Zubac
