Suns trade jared Dudley to the timberwolves for center cole Aldrich and pg tyus jones .timberwolves get good veteran player . the suns gets center insurance and pg backup .

20 Jun 2018 20:26:09
Aldrich is only guaranteed 1.56 mil this next season and jones has a cap hit of 2.4 so dudley would be expensive and a bad move for the wolves since both Aldrich and jones expire same as dudley.

Dallas Mavs Rebuild. If your going to Rebuild Then REBUILD.

Mavs Trade for Cavs:

Tristan Thompson and Minnesota second round pick to Mavs for Capspace and move Thompson on via trade or buy out.

Mavs Trade Grizzlies:
Chandler Parsons and #4 Pick
Again trade parsons or buy him out.

Grizzlies get:
Wes Matthews

Draft: Doncic at #4 and Mo Bamba at #5 Grayson Allen at #33 - Melvin Frazier #48 Jarred Vanderbilt

19 Jun 2018 19:19:43
Parsons contract isn't so bad as to include #4 to take Matthews' bad contract. One year doesn't equal a top 5 pick. Maybe if it was Barnes instead of Matthews so Memphis can get an actual starter.

19 Jun 2018 12:35:04
What does LeBron want from a team? A chance to compete with Golden State. My guess is a team that has stars who can take some of the burden off LeBron. I think Minnesota fits what LeBron wants. If Minnesota's players were in LA, no doubt LeBron would want to play with them. But the only way LeBron can play with Towns and Butler is Minnesota.

So, LeBron opts in and Cleveland trades him and Kyle Korver to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins, Gorgui Dieng, and pick 20.

19 Jun 2018 12:54:05
it'd be interesting. I'm curious how the Cavs look at at Wiggins contract though. They might prefer a third team getting involved so that they can take back less salary.

19 Jun 2018 14:54:41
Lebron is not opting in. He has until June 29th to opt in or not. July 1st is the 1st day that you can technically speak with free agents. Lebron is expected to take a little while on his decision. I doubt he opts in. If so, he would not want to go to Minnesota.

Even if he did, this trade is not close to enough. Wiggins has lowered his trade value soooo much as of late. He was even offered straight up for Blake Griffin and the Clippers said no because nobody wants to take on his contract. it raises from 25 to 33 million each year over the next 5 years. Unless he's considered a superstar, it's a waste of cap room that could be used to sign an actual superstar.

19 Jun 2018 17:19:59
Gpack17. Wiggins was never offered for Griffin. The Clippers offered Griffin for Towns.

19 Jun 2018 17:47:21
LeBron wants one thing. CONTROL!

19 Jun 2018 18:19:32
@carl006 as far as what was reported to the media, yes. The clippers offered blake for towns and were rejected. I have heard from people in the clippers front office that the twolves rebuttled with wiggins for blake and were rejected. Do people really think that all of a sudden wiggins is being mentioned as being traded? He was being offered before, they were just being unrealistic.

19 Jun 2018 21:55:11
You have heard from people in the Clippers? Right. And not one leak to the media about that?

You can’t trade for a guy and then stretch him, as I have told you before.

19 Jun 2018 14:18:26
Actually reasonable.

19 Jun 2018 01:50:47
New idea for Minnesota- Brooklyn trade.

Brooklyn gets Andrew Wiggins and pick 48.
Minnesota gets Allen Crabbe, Caris LeVert, picks 29 and 40.

18 Jun 2018 06:13:19
Just stop. If Lakers have a very slim chance to land those 3, Cavs absolutely have zero.

18 Jun 2018 06:22:12
As far as the cap situation it'll be tough but Cavs already have Bron,Lakers tryna get all three

18 Jun 2018 08:39:54
Leonard is going to be traded, because he rather plays in a big market than signing a max. So this would be a one year rental for Cleveland.

18 Jun 2018 05:49:15

MIN: 3rd pick and D.Shroder
ATL: Andrew Wiggins and 20th pick

D.Shroder recently asked the front office to be traded.
ATL can get a replacement for Shroder with 19th pick and get a wing at 20th pick.

A.Wiggins don't want to be the 3rd option on the team and became a disappointment behind jimmy butler.

20 Jun 2018 16:25:45
Wiggins and the 20th are not worth a draft cornerstone in ether bagley doncic or bamba, i would do 19th and schroder for wiggins and 20th.

17 Jun 2018 03:51:01

17 Jun 2018 14:58:04
Can’t stretch a guy you just traded for, and for the love of all things holy, can you please stop posting deals that see the Cavs ditching bad deals with and for 2nd round picks.

P. S. - think a team may want an unprotected first in a year closer than 2003 years from now. Not sure if LBJ generation 35 will be as good as current LBJ.

15 Jun 2018 13:55:34
If Grizzlies really want to get out of Parson's contract and are willing to attach the no 4 pick to do so, then how about this:

Minnesota trades Andrew Wiggins
Memphis trades Chandler Parsons and no 4 pick.

15 Jun 2018 14:37:34
Wiggins contract is worse.

15 Jun 2018 14:59:59
They want to get out of a bad contract, not swap it for another.

15 Jun 2018 15:09:37
At least Wiggins can play and can be productive. Parsons is a total waste.

15 Jun 2018 16:40:23
conley and wiggins both trying to be number one scorers even though neither is that good, hmm sounds like a disaster in the making.

15 Jun 2018 04:44:05
Suns - Grizzlies
Tj Warren , Dudley (exp) , Chriss , pick 16
Chandler Parsons, pick 4

Suns send pick 1 , pick 31, Bender , Chandler
To Twolves for Towns , Gibson

Suns draft Trae young or Donic with the 4th
Jackson, Parsons
Thoughts ?

15 Jun 2018 11:58:36
Why do you think that Wolves would trade KAT?
I see to many people thinking KAT would be available.
Wolves have a great roster, Wiggins just needs to find his place.

14 Jun 2018 14:18:14
Minnesota rebuilds around Towns.

Minnesota trades Andrew Wiggins to Brooklyn for DeMarre Carroll, Caris LeVert, and no 29 pick

Minnesota trades Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson to Memphis for Chandler Parsons, JaMychal Green, pick 4 and pick 32

Minnesota drafts Luka Doncic at 4, Chandler Hutchison at 20, Kevin Huerter at 29 (might slide a little because of surgery), and best draft and stash guy at 32.

Teague/ Jones
LeVert/ Huerter
Carroll/ Hutchison
Bjelica/ Green
Towns/ Dieng
Parsons and Patton deep on bench.

14 Jun 2018 15:11:27
Where's Doncic?

14 Jun 2018 15:36:40
I think they could get more for wiggins.

14 Jun 2018 15:56:55
cjhubbard17 - I forgot to add him. That's my bad.
Shiller41 - They might, but I am not convinced they can unless they take back bad money.

13 Jun 2018 03:20:39
Dan Gilbert refuses to facilitate a Lebron opt in a trade or a Sign and trade. Limits LBJs options to teams with cap space. He may then be set on joining the Sixers if they can add another superstar to their core.

Philly trade: Fultz, Saric, Picks 10 & 26, Bayless (Expiring/make salarys work), '20 1st top 3 protected
Spurs trade: Leonard

Lebron signs with Philly 1+PO @ Max
Redick signs for full no tax payer MLE (I think around 8m)
Sign a stretch 4 to Vet min: Frye, Ilyasova, Melo (if brought out)

PG: Simmons, McConnell
SG: Covington, Redick
SF: Leonard, Anderson
PF: Lebron, Melo
C: Embiid, Holmes

I can't see the Spurs getting a much better offer for Leonard ATM.
LBJ get shooters and playmakers to help him ease into his post prime career. Philly completes the process.

IMO this teams floor is a G7 loss to Boston in the ECF if they are hit with an injury or two. Ceiling is a Ring

14 Jun 2018 13:42:27
I think there needs to be one less pick in this trade. I'm debating between switching 26th pick to a second rounder. They could use a second or two to upgrade the 26th into a mid first round pick then to give them a cheap bench contributor.

12 Jun 2018 18:40:15
Knicks - Trail Blazers

Knicks gets:
24th pick
2019 2nd rd pick (Lakers or Timberwolves)

Trail Blazers gets:

Knicks take on Turners contract for some picks, while Portland save 4,5 million this year and even more money next year.

12 Jun 2018 20:07:36
It takes more than that to dump Turner.

11 Jun 2018 20:01:44
raptors and wolves

raptors get Wiggins and Jeff T

wolves get Lowry,ibaka and future second round pick.

raptors get a young forward and Canadian born player and a shoot first point guard they can use.

raptors also get ride of ibaka and ageing Lowry which both would fit great next to butler and towns. wolves would be tough to beat after this trade and raptors improve. in all areas.

then raptors should look yo trade Powell and wright for a first round pick and second round pick. resign vanfleet.

Jeff t. vanfleet

Cavs TT, JR, Korver
GSW give the rings 2018

Cavs get Beal, Bledsoe
Was get Clinton, Clarkson
Mil gets Trump

Cavs become immediate NBA champions, go to the White House and keep Lebron happy to resign.

11 Jun 2018 14:43:38
Milpso is Trump really a good fit for Milwaukee? He's signed for 3 more years and he has those bone spurs that have been keeping him out of action for the past 50 years. That's not even to point out that Giannis will be deported the first the media says it's his team. Unless you can surround Trump with only white guys that went to Duke, I think he's going to cause some locker room problems.

10 Jun 2018 04:48:48
Cavs trade Jr Smith,2 future second rounders to Hawks for a 2024 second

Minnesota gets Caris LeVert, DeMarre Carroll, and pick 29.
Brooklyn gets Andrew Wiggins.

Brooklyn gets a high upside type player to form a nice wing combo with Crabbe.

Minnesota gets role players and cap space.

07 Jun 2018 18:48:12
I don’t think Minnie is giving up on Wiggins.

08 Jun 2018 00:36:22
I think Minnesota would be looking for a star in return for wiggins.

08 Jun 2018 03:08:31
good trade.

07 Jun 2018 17:24:24
Unlikely, but Lebron chooses Milwaukee to stay in the east, win rings with Antetokoumbo, play with his buddy Bledsoe and forces a trade.

MIL gets Lebron, Hill
CLE gets Wiggins, Parker (s/t with Hill 48mil, 3y), Dieng, Dellavedova 17th, 20th
MIN gets Love, Snell, Henson

New lineups


Milwaukee will stand at 118 mil with Teletovic off the books in November, so they could buy a 2nd and add two minimum veteran shooters to avoid the tax for the first year

Hood/JR Smith/Z. Smith

Cleveland start to rebuild with really nice young core. They draft Trae Young, Zhaire Smith, Mitchell Robinson, who could be their future starters with Wiggins and Parker. If they resign Hood they stay at tax for one year, unless they find buyers for JR, TT or Korver.


Minnesota recruits Love to play with KAT, which would be really interesting and for sure an upgrade over Gibson. They ditch Wiggins's contract (and whining) for a 3 and D player like Snell and get salary relief with Henson over Dieng. This will put them at 119 mil, so they can sign 2-3 vets to fill the holes

07 Jun 2018 19:00:38
It’s not worth the time to even consider a hypothetical where Bron leaves Cleveland for a small market.

07 Jun 2018 19:47:47
I'm pretty sure that he is interested more in the rings than the market. That's why the Cavs are out of the question and I see him heading West only for Houston. If he doesn't feel he can compete with PG13 at the Lakers, he simply won't go to LA for the market. Basketwise East and Phily is the best option. For sure Milwaukee have slim to none chances, but playing with Giannis is something to consider to beat GSW.

07 Jun 2018 16:46:06
T-Wolves fire Thibbs and hire a pace and space coach.

T-Wolves send Jimmy Buckets
Lakes Send: K. Kuzma, J Hart, and Cleveland 2019 pick.

I think this genuinely helps the Wolves, as Buckets demands the ball a little too much for the benefit of Towns and Wiggins (who is more efficient with the ball more often rather than less often, like the only player this is true for) . Kuzma offers explosiveness and upside, Hart offers solidness and shooting, and the pick offers cheapness as KAT's deal looms larger.

The Lakers are able to sign PG and Lebron (even if they don't get Lebron this is still a good deal) . Then they do one more deal to wind up their line up.

Lakers Send B. Ingam
Pacers Send Myles Turner.

Pacers do this because of how valuable wings are and the trust in Sabonis. Lakers get shot blocking, shooting, and stay young.

Lakes line up

Jimmy Buckets
Playoff P
Myles Turner

This is a great match up against the Warriors. Old vets will sign cheaper that usual for a chance at a ring, so that fills depth.

07 Jun 2018 21:35:16
The wolves just made the playoffs for the first time in 12 years. They will look to add to what they have not trade one of their all stars.
