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

Wolves

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

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.

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

02 Feb 2019 01:48:16
Philly and MN already made one deal, make another?

Fultz and filler

for

Jones, Gibson, and either a 2020 TW 1st or 2nd

Wolves gamble on the talent who I think will flourish eventually and philly gets two extremely solid rotation pieces and a pick. Oh and these two happen to be maybe the only wolves players jimmy liked, not that it matters at all I just think that's funny.

01 Feb 2019 20:03:23
Three team deal.

Utah gets Mike Conley
Memphis gets Derrick Favors and a 2019 1st from Utah, and Jeff Teague and a lottery protected 1st from Minnesota
Minnesota gets Ricky Rubio and Justin Holiday.

31 Jan 2019 16:21:08
Mavs would have used their CAP and the 1st picks for 19 and 21 but would have a young, fast team with talent to become a playoff team and to go Forward from there in the next 3 years. And to be fair to get Drummond and Wiggins or one of them would be a good move. But I think Detroit and Minnesota need to some changes because they are stuck as discussed.

As described in the proposales before the mainmain moves would with some others asset to make it happen would be:

Mavs:
- Drummond, Wiggins

Wolves:
- 2 x st and McLemore and 40m CAP

Pistons:
- Jordan and Bazemore and CAP

Hawks:
- CAP and the 1st 2019 unprotected

Kings:
- Barnes

Mavs roster would promise some nice games and to become a good Playoff Team to see how to look for more:


Drummond, Dieng
Prince, Leuer/Kleber
Wiggins, Finney-Smith
Doncic, Harris
Smith, Brunson

31 Jan 2019 17:16:43
That team is horrible defensively. Prince is their best defender.

31 Jan 2019 18:55:41
So its basically Jordan and Barnes for Drummond and Wiggins. With Drummond>Jordan and Wiggins>Barnes, Dallas is going to have to come with more than just that.

FYI. Kings want no part of Barnes anyways.

31 Jan 2019 22:54:41
Kings will welcome Barnes. Dude y you act like the kings just can sign anyone. Bazemore hardaway Barnes porter would be great especially just giving expiring contracts for them. Like really who the kings going to sign. With one those players they can be 7th seed.

31 Jan 2019 23:24:36
I never said the Kings would sign a top tier FA with their cap space.

But that does not mean we have to be like the Knicks and sign/ take on "overpaid" talent.

Kings are going to be like they were last season, wait the free agency period out, force teams to use cap space by matching offers on RFAs and then get a starter and top bench player for $10 mil/ year.

Kings win games with pace and depth, not star talent.

01 Feb 2019 04:09:44
Early prediction. After other teams have spent their cap space.

Vucevic 3 yrs $18 mil per
Mirotic 3 years $15 mil per

And Kings would still have arou d $15 mil in cap space to take on salary for draft picks.

31 Jan 2019 16:14:38
Same motivation as before Mavs could try to get a quick wing with potential. Wolves are stuck in CAP for years and are not a playoff team. To do some changes may be wise. Kings what a scoring wing.

Wolves:
- McLemore, Powell, Randolph, 1st from Mavs, 1st from Kings

Mavs:
- Wiggins, Dieng

Kings:
- Barnes, Canaan

31 Jan 2019 17:17:47
I rather have barnes than wiggens. Barnes is more 2 way player than wiggens.

31 Jan 2019 19:00:13
Man, that was a good laugh. You honestly think Minnesota is going to get 2 first rounders (lottery picks? ) for Wiggins. They would be lucky to get 2 second rounders for Wiggins.

29 Jan 2019 22:14:19
Memphis sends: Gasol and Conley
Minnesota sends: Wiggins, Jeff Teague, Dario Saric, Taj Gibson, and Bayless

Minnesota gets off Wiggins, brings in a true distributor and floor spacer, and while Gasol would be an interesting fit next to KAT, he’s still really good and they can both spread the floor to make it work.

Conley, Okogie, Covington, KAT, Gasol.

Memphis gets 2 young talents in Wiggins and Saric to build around JJJ and a longterm timeline while giving Wiggins a short run as the guy to build assertiveness until you draft someone better from being bad. Comes with some nice expiring money.

Teague, Javon Carter, Wiggins, Saric, JJJ.

29 Jan 2019 21:42:28
This could work for all teams if pelicans think it’s enoigh. And it does work money wise.

Blazers - Pelicans - T’Wolves

Pelicans-
Give: AD, Jrue, K Williams
Get: Wiggins, Nurkic, Bates-Diop, simons, swanigan, 2 top five protected 1st rounders from Portland, and a second from Portland, and a lotto protected first from Minny

Portland-
Give: CJ, Nurk, Stauskas, simons, swanigan, 2 firsts, a second
Get: AD, Jrue, K Williams

Timberwolves-
Give: wiggins, bates-diop, lotto protected first
Get: CJ, Stauskas

Pels- I know that the Wiggins contract sucks. But he still has potential that you could develop if he was a number one guy while you tank. And you get a bunch of young assets and picks.

Por- tries to win now. Obviously no garuntee he would stay. But you get two years of prime Dame, AD, and Jrue who would fit better than CJ did. And two roster spots to sign a vet to fill out the roster.

Minny- gets off of Wiggins contract, and get a great perimeter scorer in CJ. And a good shooter in Stauskas.

29 Jan 2019 22:27:41
I definitely think Portland should try for this. Make a home run type of move. They have assets that could make NO think at least. Maybe it ends up being Moore instead of Jrue (as NO could move Holiday for his own nice return), but it's a similar quality package to the Lakers best possible offer, if not a bit better.

30 Jan 2019 02:23:26
So not only does New Orleans trade away its best two players, it gets stuck with Wiggins and paying his awful contracts. That's like finding out that you have testicular cancer after your girlfriend kicks you in the nuts right after dumping you for a 21 year old male stripper.

28 Jan 2019 16:47:47
Twolves- Davis, Hill

Pelicans- Wiggins, Saric, Jones, Okogie, 2019 first, 2021 first

28 Jan 2019 18:39:20
Wiggins doesn’t have positive value. No way is that a deal that can get Davis.

28 Jan 2019 18:45:22
KAT and Davis -- Derrick Rose Rule violation?

27 Jan 2019 01:09:21
Boston: Shumpert+ Z-BO+ 1rnd pick Philly+ 1rnd pick Wolves+ 2rnd pick Kings

Wolves: G Hayward

Kings: A Wiggins+ return 1 rnd pick Sac

27 Jan 2019 05:44:16
Hayward is trash since his injury. And because of that way overpaid. So if Wiggins is sent to the kings several picks have to go to the wolves and not to Boston.

Furthermore Philly owns all their picks.

27 Jan 2019 16:08:10
I guess I have a problem wrapping my head around Hayward = Wiggins + minnesota lottery pick.

27 Jan 2019 18:45:50
Wiggins is double value of Heyward.

23 Jan 2019 01:53:42

23 Jan 2019 04:14:32
How does Memphis get its own 2021 first rounder in this trade?

23 Jan 2019 04:18:00
I assume you mean Minnesota gives up the 2021 1at.

And no chance Minnesota gives up 2 1st round picks for Conley. Not with his contract.

23 Jan 2019 04:32:04
Actually think its a toronto 2021 pick.

23 Jan 2019 06:57:34
Fredman is correct guys. Sorry for the typo, the 2021 Pick is from Toronto.

23 Jan 2019 19:43:34
Conley fits perfect in minny.
