LAL Signs PG in the Offseason but can't snag a second star

LAL trade: Deng, Zubac, Pick 25 & 47, '19 & '20 2nds
Suns trade: Chandler, Dudley

LAL resigns:
KCP - 2yr/26m(2nd year team option)
Lopez - 1yr/8m
Randle - 3yr/36m
IT - 1yr/12m

PG: Lonzo, IT, Ennis
SG: KCP, Hart
SF: PG, Ingram, Dudley
PF: Kuzma, Randle
C: Lopez, Chandler

LAL can then focus on 2019 free agency to add a second star (Leonard or Klay would fit perfectly)

It's going to be tough to sell Thomas on coming off the bench when he has been so adamant about being a starter -- and even more so on a one-year deal during which he has to re-establish his value.

18 Apr 2018 13:42:35
Those contracts are all well below market value.

18 Apr 2018 15:14:13
I agree to an extent. I think that contract might be the type IT will have to sign to show that he's back to the guy he was before he was injured. If he signs for a longer term, he's definitely not going to get the annual salary he wants, and he's also going to want to win. He's not likely going to get any kind of a monster deal from a contender for a season as none of them have great cap space.

18 Apr 2018 16:32:08
The only contract I see that's maybe a little low is Lopez, but I think the IT contract is a little high. They only teams with cap space this summer that aren't tanking are Philly, LA, and the Pacers. I don't see them going hard after
any of those guys other than maybe Caldwell Pope.

If pelicans well do a cousins sign and trade for Hayward would be killer

Agree3 Disagree4

18 Apr 2018 07:51:46
Irving, Brown, Tatum, Horford, Cousins in the East would be unstoppable.

But I don't think either the Pelicans or Boston would agree to this (Boogie's reputation as a chemistry distraction and Hayward is a big contract coming off a gruesome injury)

18 Apr 2018 14:12:57
I think they may for the reasons you just gave.

Personally, I think that DMC gets a bit of a bad wrap. Yes, he has done some dumb things, but he has looked like a much better version of himself in NO. People grow up, and maybe he's turn the corner. It's also not necessarily fair to kick his butt too hard during his time in Sacramento, that circus organization is a joke.

Yes, Hayward is coming off a major injury, but he is a much more needed fit for the Pels, who already have a dominant big man.

18 Apr 2018 15:02:47
This would be a great trade for both teams.
I would love to see boogie in Green. He's not a bad guy, he only has a bad reputaton.

18 Apr 2018 15:17:26
Both players would be great fits for the new teams, but Hayward isn't going anywhere. I think the Pelicans would be smart to do a sign and trade for Cousins, as they've shown they are probably better put together without him. He's still a star, and could be used for a guy or two who would better fit their squad. It could set up a very solid/ rare win-win trade.

18 Apr 2018 16:37:20
If I’m Boston I wouldn’t do it for two reasons:

The lineup of Irving, brown, Tatum, Hayward, and Horford has a chance to be the best lineup in the nba if brown and Tatum keep improving.

I’d take Hayward’s injury and possible recovery over Cousins. Achilles is the most serious injury in basketball.

(And third, I just wouldn’t want Cousins personality on my team. I think he’s a poor teammate on the court. Neither Sacramento or NO was better with him than without. And I’m sure I’ll get a lot that disagree, but he’s the center version of Melo to me. )

18 Apr 2018 19:45:31
Hayward is staying in Boston.

with Rozier, Smart, Morris, Theis off the bench is a championship lineup.

19 Apr 2018 19:59:23
Boogie has been awesome so far here in NOLA. I don't think this deal helps either team.

18 Apr 2018 04:55:11
Noah comeback season starts with a little faith by management. Than loosing 15 lbs to start at center. It seems like long shot from happening but with Porzingis out until 2019 and Kanter considering opting out, no other option. Hopefully ny native Bamba falls to 9th or or knicks get higher pick to land him. Eventually playing Noah will restore some value to trade him at trading deadline

Hardaway Mudiay for Mathews Barea
Lee Thomas for Bayless Korkmaz Anderson Cabarrot

Pacers get Felicio
Bulls get Noah Kornet
Knicks get Asik Jefferson

By end of the season

2019 summer
Trade Korkmaz for 2 late 2nd
Buy 2nd
Harris get 4yr 100 mil
Walker get 4yr 100 mil
Thompson get 4yr 120 mil
Now Porzingis sign extension 5yr 200mil


Agree2 Disagree8

18 Apr 2018 14:15:35
How is that Knicks team any better than it is now? Dotson starting at the 3? TLC at the 2?

Also, it ain't going to happen for Noah. The 15 pounds are not the issue, it's that he's past his prime.

18 Apr 2018 15:33:28
Noah is never going to be a starting player in the league again. He just doesn't have it in him physically. What he can do, is become a solid low minute bench player who comes in and wreaks havoc for a few minutes a game. He's going to be insanely overpaid for that role, but he could be a good player for a team that's rebuilding with cheap contracts. What I envision for him is a PJ Brown type of role for the 2008 Celtics. the trouble will be finding a team that's the caliber of that Celtics team with enough space to absorb the contract.

17 Apr 2018 23:31:07
Philly: Kennard+Bullock+ 1rnd pick Detroit 2020

Detroit: Fultz

Sign: LBJ to 66M 2y contract
sign:IT to 10M 1Y contract
sign B Lopez: 20M 1Y contract

PF: LBJ/ Saric
SF:Bullock/ Covington
SG:Kennard/ J Anderson
Pg: Simmons/ IT

Agree2 Disagree12

18 Apr 2018 03:05:14
Idk that's two over 40% 3 point shooters on very cheap contracts, not sure what fultz is valued at.

18 Apr 2018 03:37:00
I don't think Philly trades Fultz whilst his value is low. IT wouldn't play with Lebron again. Brook Lopez will get 8m at most, maybe 10-15m if he goes to a rebuilding team as a mentor.

18 Apr 2018 19:46:36
Not enough for Fultz. Even though he had a disappointing season, he was still the first pick and still has potential. Two bench guys and a future unknown first is not enough.

17 Apr 2018 22:17:30
Noah comeback season starts with a little faith by management. Than loosing 15 lbs to start at center. It seems like long shot from happening but with Porzingis out until 2019 and Kanter considering opting out, no other option. Hopefully ny native Bamba falls to 9th or or knicks get higher pick.

Knicks sign T.Young 1 yr 15mil

Hardaway Mudiay for Mathews Barea
Lee Thomas for Bayless Korkmaz Anderson Cabarrot

18 Apr 2018 01:49:10
Lose 15lbs? Do you watch basketball?

He’s a smalll center as is. He’s 6’11 230lb. You want him down to 215lb?

Awesome. Well thought out.

18 Apr 2018 13:44:21
Joakim Noah gets shreaded and does not get push around. i'm sure he weighs more than 230 listed. 225 lbs for body frame is solid weight to make one push to restore his career.

17 Apr 2018 21:24:15

I Like the magic trade.

17 Apr 2018 22:28:48
I don't agree with a few of the scenarios but i definitely respect the depth of thought involved

In the scenario with the Pels it just would not work out when Boogie re-signs. It would leave Darius Miller as your only true SF and would not give them the cap room to sign a decent SF in FA. Pels have to continue growth or risk losing AD

Of all the scenarios i see Houston as most likely maybe Memphis second most.

17 Apr 2018 22:54:08
Maybe Minnesota for Dieng?

18 Apr 2018 00:22:09
10) Minnesota receives Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Grogui Deng and Pick 48 and future second due to his contract being one year longer than plumlees

Pros Wolves gain 2-5 mill over the next four years
Pros Hawks gain draft picks.

17 Apr 2018 21:19:06
Took some time working on possible trades for the hawks tell me if you think their possible or realistic.

1)Knicks receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Joakim Noah and pick 37 in 2018 nba draft

Pros knicks receive about 5.3 in cap this year and around 6-7 mill for the following two years as well as a center who is willing to play
Pros Hawks receive draft pick and a defensive minded center who could be a mentor for John Collins who needs help on the defensive side

Agree2 Disagree3

17 Apr 2018 21:28:44
Im not sure ATL would bite so early. This could be a potential deal at trading deadline. Idiot ny management must learn to change their mentality about how to treat players they don't want. Start playing them more to increase their trade value. With Porzingis likely out until next January and kanter considering opting out. Noah should see more playing time. So this trade could happen in 2019. But not before that.

17 Apr 2018 16:11:10

Magic get #7 pick and Zach Randolph
-Draft Trae Young or Collin Sexton

Kings get #5 pick and Bismack Biyombo
-Draft Michael Porter or Marvin Bagley.

Agree8 Disagree4

17 Apr 2018 19:05:46
if the lottery hold this order, i support the kings moving up, their future is so uninspiring so mpj’s upside is worth the risk. and if the magic want a pg as bad as everyone says, moving down is smart.

17 Apr 2018 12:11:49

SAS get: Anthony Davis, Solomon Hill, and 2020 1st DP

Pg. Murray
Sg. Green
Sf. Gay
Pf. Davis
C. Gasol

Resign: Demarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo

Pg. Rondo
Sg. Holiday
Sf. Leonard
Pf. Aldridge
C. Cousins

Agree6 Disagree18

17 Apr 2018 14:47:06
Thats a big no-thanks from NOLA.

17 Apr 2018 22:19:15
Pels get screwed. No way that is even close for AD straight up. Leonard is good, but not AD good.

18 Apr 2018 01:10:08
Congrats yumbo. You are a moron.

Both have health concerns. So just evaluate on court performance. How many times has AD won defensive player of the year? Who is the better shooter? Who is the better playmaker?

Great. AD is a better rebounder. Leonard better at everything else. Leonard is the best two way player in the game.

Ridiculous. Leonard is good. But not AD good. Put down the weed.

17 Apr 2018 10:51:15
Sac & Orl

Sac get 5th pick
Draft: Porter Jr

Orl get 7th pick and another future 1st
Draft: Young

Kings move up to secure Porter Jr as he's mocked going 5th or 6th

Magic get their Pg and a future asset

Agree6 Disagree8

18 Apr 2018 05:14:53
