You do realize that the Mid-Level exceptuon to the salary cap is over $5 mil? Meaning that vets like Rondo, Chandler, and Carroll will be looking for at least that amount from playoff teams like Philly, Portland, Houston, etc.

16 Feb 2019 21:22:40
So Horford will opt out of $30 million next year to sign 2 year $31 million one year guarantee. So he will leave Boston to play in LA for half the pay. Solid plan.

16 Feb 2019 23:43:02
David West did something similar.

17 Feb 2019 04:59:06
11- david west left a bad team for a contender. Not a contender for a worse team.

17 Feb 2019 05:28:48
Boston are pretenders. Bucks And raptors are contenders. warriors nuggets thunder are contenders.

17 Feb 2019 07:37:16
Warriors are champions. Other 29 teams are pretenders.

17 Feb 2019 13:52:05
Nick's Warrior pimp hand be strong.

17 Feb 2019 14:03:58
Indy was a challenger :-)

17 Feb 2019 17:47:59
Actually west was worse because the money he gave up didn't get back within the next year. If horford did that he make a million extra. But what west did it took him a few years to make up.

18 Feb 2019 01:45:45
Not really. Instead of 1 year $30 million it becomes 2 year $31million. He plays year 2 for $1 million. If he doesn't think he could get a contract from any other team in 2020 then its good move. But the MLE will probably be over $6 million to go to contender. He could get even more if he went to a worse team.

16 Feb 2019 07:06:31
Pelicans and Lakers make a deal. Ball Ingram and wagner plus 3 first for second round pick on draft night. Long as the pelicans buyout davis right now. Lakers get davis for cheap and can build through free agency with the 50 mil plus in cap space plus kuz davis james and Hart. Most delusional post ever in my opinion.

Agree1 Disagree14

16 Feb 2019 12:59:57
What are you talking about here?

Are you suggesting that the Pels buyout Davis now on a nudge, nudge, wink, wink agreement with the Lakers that they receive the players/ picks package at the draft for a second?

Do you think the league may have a little issue with this one? Allowing this to happen would literally be the end of the NBA.

I’ll give you credit for at least acknowledging that this is delusional, but you stopped short of the correct answers of illegal and sport ruining.

16 Feb 2019 15:13:31
The ramblings of a Laker fan who didn't get his way Feb 7th and won't come July

The Pelicans will not trade Davis to L. A. after the tampering. Ownership has stated that

Davis will be a Celtic or Knick.

16 Feb 2019 16:01:39
I'm agreeing with Charles the fix is in davis will be a laker.

Thanks triangle for the credit lol. this was just for fun.

17 Feb 2019 15:01:54
If the Lakers are habitual tamperers then why doesn't the NBA cancel all-star weekend? It's one big tampering festival it seems.

16 Feb 2019 07:00:35
Ok just throwing this scenario out there .
What if Kyrie tells Lebron he's signing with tHe Knicks , so then Lebron wants to be traded to the Knicks ...

See the thing is Knicks don't know if Kd will sign so why not trade for Lebron.

I say something like 2019 1st , and the 2021 Dallas 1st plus Knox would do it .

That would still give the Knicks a decent amount of money left to sign a few role players like Ariza , Jordan might take a pay cut and stay.

LBJ is not following anyone to a team at this point, they either come to him or he has three more years like this in LA. This is just dumb.

17 Feb 2019 05:36:06
Two picks and Knox not enough for3 years of king James . 2019 first is a must plus gives them more cap space. plus 2021 first from ny. Ny can have prize kuzma with friendly contract

Then Leonard and cousins join la


16 Feb 2019 01:41:10
Lakers offseason

Fire Luke Walton

Let everyone walk besides Bullock

Free Agency
Patrick Beverly
Terrance Ross
Demarcus Cousins

Rui Hachimura


This gives Lebron a mix of shooters and defenders all throughout the roster. Ball would be the only player that would be a ball handler. Cousins would be a great fit with Lebron and next to Kuzma.

Agree10 Disagree6

16 Feb 2019 03:54:06
You forgot ingram, must be high 🤣.

16 Feb 2019 04:33:16
Nah they can get rid of him however they want lol.

16 Feb 2019 04:33:17
Lakers don't have the $50+ mil in salary cap to sign Ross, Beverly and Cousins for next year.

15 Feb 2019 15:10:52
Knicks get James and kuzma and lakers get Williamson and Robinson plus cap relief plus two first.James can retry with Knicks with different young players and cap space. Lakers retry with 2019 free agency. Sign Leonard and cousins.

Agree2 Disagree15

15 Feb 2019 17:24:55
There is no way in hell that Lebron 8s traded to the Knicks. That is just folly. I think he would retire first. He's in LA for his family and business interests.
But, you made me laugh. Thanks for that.

15 Feb 2019 18:11:58
Lebron is King of LA. Not NY lmao sorry ✌.

15 Feb 2019 18:22:33
Knicks say no.

15 Feb 2019 18:48:58
Stop it this isn't happening but the Knicks would not say no.

15 Feb 2019 21:10:39
I think I’d only do this if I signed one or two big names before the trade if I’m the Knicks. Obviously Lebron isn’t leading a team to a championship alone, and he’s not young enough to plan a long build with. Giving up Zion and two firsts is a huge gamble without assurance you’ve got a top tier team in the league.

15 Feb 2019 22:52:37
Thrill- knick can get ad, sign kyrie and Kd.

15 Feb 2019 11:11:46

Markieff goes to Thunder and Kanter to Blazers.. So does it means Melo will be signing with the Lakers and play the rest of 25 games??

Agree4 Disagree8

15 Feb 2019 13:29:46
Not sure how signing Melo helps develop the young Lakers core players.

15 Feb 2019 18:13:53
The young core is temporary. Melo and Lebron about about start uncle drew part 2 in LA.

15 Feb 2019 18:23:20
Melo goes to big 3.

15 Feb 2019 20:41:27
Gotta develop the young core to increase their trade value. Not seeing Melo helping with that.

15 Feb 2019 23:55:59
Melo's last sound bite was heavily laden with retirement talk. There is no team for him that will enhance his legacy.

15 Feb 2019 06:42:35
Magic Trade Aaron Gordon #8 or #10 pick

Bulls Trade Denzel Valentine Lauri Markkanen Cristiano Felicio

Magic receive Denzel Valentine Lauri Markkannen Cristiano Felicio

Bulls receive #8 or #10 pick from Magic Aaron Gordon

In 2019 NBA Draft Night

Aaron Gordon 15.5 ppg he is not a All Star Player

Bulls will have #4 & #10 picks for Draft Night

Magic will save Salary cap plus Trade Execption from Aaron Gordon

Magic buyout Timofey Mozgov

Agree0 Disagree12

15 Feb 2019 09:23:04
The Bulls better keep Markkannen.

15 Feb 2019 04:38:17
If knicks trade DSJ Ntilikina for Irving, NY can still trade for or sign big name sg or sign big name and still max durant.

If NY winning the lottery to land
williamson, than you trade knox thomas 3 future 1st for beal and max durant.

If suns wins, you trade 2021 dal 1st and Morant for Williamson, than you trade knox thomas 3 future 1st for beal and max durant. Jordan MLE. Sign Bird rights. 4 vet minimum contract and draft 2nd

Irving/Mudiay(bird right)
Williamson/Vonleh(bird right)

If any body else wins you, you draft Barrett 2 options

Trade Knox Thomas 2 1st for Alridge
Trade Knox Thomas 2 1st for Green

max durant. Jordan MLE. Sign Bird rights. 4 vet minimum contract and draft 2nd

Aldridge or Green/Vonleh

If any body else wins, you draft Barrett. Maxed Durant. Sign Milsap and Jordan 2yr 30 mil. Sign Bird rights. 3 vet minimum contract and draft 2nd


Agree2 Disagree12

15 Feb 2019 08:00:56
Not sure how you are trading for Irving? S&T?

Secondly, keeping Mudiay's and Vonleah's bird rights creates cap holds that will prevent there being the cap space to sign durant. The cap hold is usually 3x what the player is making in salary this year.

Lastly, you think Millsap is opting out of $30 mil this season? Doubtful.

15 Feb 2019 09:26:31
I think Millsap's contract has a team option, pritty sure Denver isn't going to pay that, unless Millsap plays a great playoff run.

15 Feb 2019 13:35:10
Yup, my bad. Still think Denver picks it up to remain competitive with the top teams in the Western Conference.

15 Feb 2019 18:25:52

Irving has player opt, which he will take in that trade scenario.

Doubt milsap a bench player now get 30 mil. A yr.

The cap hold is usually 3x what the player is making in salary this year.  
Bird right give an opportunity to get 3x what they make. Knicks don't have to offer them more vet minimum. Just means they got 1st dibs. Remember depending which option happen how much cap space NY have. Mudiay has qualifier.

Just being difficult bc nobody wants to join the queens. Your team is 4th option in your own state.

15 Feb 2019 20:53:11
Maybe, shizzee, buts been a long time since we were 11-47.

And that fact alone with all that NYC has to offer makes the Knicks even more disappointing. much like the Jets, Giants, and Mets. Thank God for the Yankees and Islanders or your teams would be worse than anything in NorCal.
