What trade makes sense and should happen?

1) LA Lakers
Butler for Ingram+ 1rnd pick + deng

Butler for J Brown+ Smart

3) Philly
Butler for Fultz+ W Chandler

Butler for Harris and Gilgeous alexander

Agree0 Disagree10

18 Aug 2018 11:24:53
The Laker trade really looks promising, since Butler wants to win now. but Minnesota will try to refuse to take Deng.

Boston will want a pick included with Butler

Philly is HIGH on Fultz and would require a pick in case Butler Opts our after next season. (Like Boston)

The Clippers would be shorthanded at SF if they gave up Harris.

If I was Philly, I would do the Fultz but I wouldn’t offer Chandler, I would give Minnesota a 2nd Rnd pick instead.

But these are some very good trade scenarios. Trades that I think Minnesota would take.

18 Aug 2018 11:29:27
1. Not enough for Butler
2. Too much for Butler
3. Not enough for Butler
4. Not enough for Butler.

18 Aug 2018 13:28:55
Good one supercollider. We keep forgetting Brown is considered better than Lebron at this point.

18 Aug 2018 14:14:48
Supercollider such a homer respons.

18 Aug 2018 14:36:53
I think if Butler gets moved it will be near or at the deadline. Maybe Brooklyn, maybe NY. Sixers have an outside shot but Fultz and Chandler aren't enough I don't think.

18 Aug 2018 15:28:56
letsgokncks don't be mad.

Boston trade makes the most sense for the Wolves, but because of the cap Boston would have to refuse that trade. Brown and Smart have more value to Boston's future than for just 1 season of Butler.

Butler will be moved, just not to any of those teams.

18 Aug 2018 18:43:49
Lol I’d take Harris and sga over brown and smart.

18 Aug 2018 07:40:38
Rockets: Anderson

Heat: whiteside

Agree0 Disagree9

18 Aug 2018 10:05:25
Whiteside makes no sense behind Capela, and Heat have already indicated they’re not keen on Anderson.

18 Aug 2018 10:26:42
Did the Rockets move Capela?

18 Aug 2018 11:28:06
I’m sure Miami would ask for 2 First Round picks to take Anderson contract on.! Miami laughs and hangs up on Houston.

18 Aug 2018 13:24:58
^ Pretty sure Rockets don't even make the call.

17 Aug 2018 18:05:11
If the knicks can win 30 games by trading deadline with 29 games left. They have to trade Noah with picks unprotect consider it won't wont be top 10 pick. Possibly get 2nd rounder in the deal.

Noah kornet 2019 1st
Asik Lopez 2nds
Randolph Koufos 2nd
Faried Arthur 2nd

Of this only gets done if knicks manage to trade Lee and Hardaway for expiring contract. Under cba rules this will allow ny to sign 3

Agree0 Disagree12

17 Aug 2018 18:45:43
So if the Knicks are 30 and 23 with Porzingis missing extended time?

17 Aug 2018 19:16:24
And if the hawks win 70 games this year, they need to sign trae young to a 20 year extension.

What are you talking about? Seriously.

17 Aug 2018 23:31:29
Yeah, seriously, is the Spike Lee? Lol.

18 Aug 2018 10:06:55
I’m a Knicks fan and I would be surprised if they won 30 games the whole season, much less be 30-23 at the trade deadline.

18 Aug 2018 10:28:52
I don't see NY win much games, but the Nets, Sacramento and the Bulls would all like a late lottery for taking Noah's contract.

19 Aug 2018 11:51:40
Haha even knicks fans think you sound dumb! Bro just stop and post about other teams cause you obviously know nothing about the knicks!

17 Aug 2018 08:35:57
1)NY- Portland

Portland: Kanter
NY: E Turner+ 1rnd pick Portland+ swap option 2020 pick


NO: T Hardaway
LA: S Hill
NY: Deng+ 1rnd pick LA

NY aims for the 2020 free agent market and get some draft picks.

They can develop the young players and they will propably have a high draft pick with Porzingis out.

Agree8 Disagree15

17 Aug 2018 13:30:12
I don't see the blazers doing this. They aren't in position to let draft assets go. They could be a lottery team this season.

17 Aug 2018 16:17:58
I do see Portland doing this, even if they end up in the lottery, it’s going to be late in it (12-14). For a team facing the tax this year, and already on pace to pay the repeater next year, getting rid of $17M off the books for 2019-20 and adding a player more likely to help them squeeze into the playoffs now makes this deal reasonable for them.

The concern I have with these deals is that I think the Knicks are looking to strike in the upcoming FA class more than waiting until 2020. I’m not saying they shouldn’t wait, as a Knicks fan I would prefer this route, but the lure of Irving, Butler, Walker or Durant May cause them to aim for next offseason.

17 Aug 2018 16:24:06
Hardaway for Turner 2nd

NY needs a playmaker next to frank, rebounder and better defender

Portland has little to no bench scoring or shooting. your looking at a 18 ppg pure scorer. Harkless and Aminu can play sf.

17 Aug 2018 16:49:50
Blazers don't care about the tax because they aren't so far into it they have to pay tens of millions. Losing a possible lottery pick is way more important to them at this stage of the rebuild than squeaking into the playoffs. Kanter isn't helping them win a playoff bid either. Turner contributes more than kanter would on the blazers roster.

17 Aug 2018 18:05:41
Yeah, I'm not sure how Kanter helps Portland more than Turner. Kanter is the worst defensive center in the NBA. Portland has a solid starting center and a young backup that they love. Kanter wouldn't fit a need at all. Turner on the other hand isn't a great fit, but Portland needs wings and ball handers.

I think Portland would rather hold onto Turner, let the young guys develop, and dump him next offseason when there's more cap space to be used.

17 Aug 2018 06:55:48
Spurs get: Whiteside, Winslow
Heat get: Gasol, Mills, Toronto 2019 st.

Heat get to move on from Whiteside, Solid backup big, solid backup PG, and 1st pick.

Spurs get upgrade at Center, upgrade at backup SF.

Agree10 Disagree11

17 Aug 2018 08:37:17
I like this move for miami.

Talent wise, this is a steal for the Spurs, but i'm not sure they want Whiteside.

17 Aug 2018 16:18:55
Agreed Gasupo, I don’t know how Pop and Hassan get along together.

18 Aug 2018 01:39:49
Triangle- pop is nine in a year or two. No great stars ever joined spurs under him, whitesides might be the only way to improve.

18 Aug 2018 10:10:20
Whiteside’s attitude is the issue. Yes, he would theoretically make the Spurs better, but he wants touches. Do you think that happens with LMA on the court? He would be whiny in SA as much as he was last year in Miami, and that won’t fly.

19 Aug 2018 05:07:30
Whiteside wants playing time, not necessarily touches. He would get both with Spurs.

Spurs have no cap room to go after free agents next year unless they get rid of Gasol and Mills. Butler will probably be too expensive. They only other free agent they could afford would be Tobias Harris. I'm not sure he would be better than Whiteside.

Even if Whiteside doesn't work out, Winslow could turn out to be a more athletic Bruce Bowen.

19 Aug 2018 05:08:59
If the Spurs did this deal, I would start Winslow and Whiteside and make Rudy Gay 6th man of they year.

17 Aug 2018 04:24:52

ATL get Anderson, Hield & 2nd from HOU

SAC get Bazemore & Melton

HOU get Shumpert & Koufos

Agree4 Disagree16

17 Aug 2018 10:11:48
Okay, it's sacramento, but why would they do this?

16 Aug 2018 23:59:35

Raptors get Simmons/ Martin from Magic-Singler/ Patterson from Thunder (stretch or buyout both)

Thunder get Ibaka from Raptors/ Ross from Magic

Magic get Schroeder/ Abrines from Thunder

Raptors get solid wing player and a big guy with potential, save a little bit of money

Thunder get to clean their books a little bit, get a couple of players that would be more useful to them than what they are giving up, one with an expiring contract

Magic get the best player in the deal (apologies to Serge), a good young scoring pg which they lack and a backup 2.

Agree2 Disagree13

17 Aug 2018 00:19:17
Schroeder and Abrines are average players at best. Simmons is the gem in this deal. Whoever ends up with simmons wins.

17 Aug 2018 00:40:38
Bad deal for magic.

17 Aug 2018 02:14:59
I can’t see Orlando wanting Schroeder and the Raptors already have a ton of wings,

17 Aug 2018 06:45:11
Thunder big winner.

20 Aug 2018 04:05:54
The Thunder bench (which is where they need help) is not better, but actually worse for making that trade.
They really only need a bench shooting guard who can play D and make the 3's, but that player would have to come from a trade for Abrines, Ferguson, Nader, Diallo and Singler.

16 Aug 2018 22:29:52
Bogdanovic, WCS, sac 1st roun2019
J. Brown, moris.

Agree0 Disagree17

17 Aug 2018 00:00:00
The Celtics already own that pick.

17 Aug 2018 00:01:40
Celtics already have kings 2019 pick unless it's no.1 (most likely)

17 Aug 2018 16:21:11
Removing the top 1 protection would be the only incentive the Kings could offer on that pick as it’s already going to Philly or Boston, which I don’t see them doing.

C’s pass as well.

18 Aug 2018 01:41:21
Wcs willthrive and be better than any center celtics have right now. Moves Horford to the 4.

19 Aug 2018 11:53:52
I’m surprised Boston fans haven’t told us about how they wouldn’t trade that franchise superstar brown yet!

16 Aug 2018 22:17:56
4 team Whiteside trade:

Bucks send: Snell
Receive: Jr Smith
Smith is an upgrade in the short term, and can be sold as a large expiring or waived to create additional cap space next offseason.

Heat send: Whiteside
Receive: TT, Ajinca (waive), '19 & 2x '21 2nds
Get a cheaper backup C who will be less of a headache, also get some 2nds to restock their tradable assets. This move is all about ushering in the era of Bam.

Pels send: Ajinca, '19 & '21 2nds
Receive: Korver
Add some much needed shooting and dump an unused C.

Cavs send: TT, Korver, Smith, '21 2nd
Receive: Whiteside, Snell
Upgrade a C and is a good fit next to Love. Also get a younger prospect to groom into their next 3&D wing

Agree5 Disagree15

17 Aug 2018 12:51:17
Yeah Smith is not an upgrade.

17 Aug 2018 14:19:12
I believe the Bucks would pass on J. R. Smith. As stated Not an upgrade, But more of a Downgrade, compared to Snell. On and off the court, And contract wise.

18 Aug 2018 01:42:12
Bigwuz- jr smith is only an upgrade over noah, parsons, maybe a few others.

19 Aug 2018 11:54:58
Torque would you do lebron for Middleton and Bledsoe?

16 Aug 2018 19:57:32
Trade #1

Cleveland - Denver

Cleveland trades: Collin Sexton and Tristan Thompson

Denver trades: Jamaal Murray and Gary Harris

Why for Cleveland? Acquire two talented guards that still have room to grow. They could be our backcourt of the future.

Why for Denver? Sexton gives them their point guard of the future. Thompson is added for salary purposes.

Trade #2

Cleveland - Oklahoma City

Cleveland trades: Jordan Clarkson and J. R. Smith

Oklahoma City trades: Steven Adams and Kyle Singler

Why for Cleveland? Upgrade their center position; Adams is an underrated big and fits perfectly next to Love. Singler could be a backup combo forward.

Why for Oklahoma City? They get a starting calliber shooting guard in Clarkson. Smith is added for salary purposes.

Cleveland starting line-up
PG: Jamaal Murray / George Hill
SG: Gary Harris / Kyle Korver
SF: Cedi Osman / Sam Dekker / Kyle Singler
PF: Kevin Love / Larry Nance / Channing Frye
C: Steven Adams / Ante Zizic.

Agree0 Disagree18

16 Aug 2018 20:13:18
They’re both bad for the other team

Denver gives up 2 proven players that could potentially be allstars at some point. The Cavs would be happy if Sexton was that good.

OKC laughs at the 2nd one. Adams is a top 15 center. Clarkson isn’t good and Smith is just a contract that could be used to dump cap space.

16 Aug 2018 20:44:37
Thanks for the post Cleveland homer!

Sexton may or may not end up being as good as Murray, and Thompson for Harris is just a joke.

Why would OKC need Clarkson with Schroder in town, and why would the Thunder give up Adams, who is key to their defensive success for a selfish, streaky shooter in Smith?

16 Aug 2018 23:52:00
I realize murray and Harris aren't all stars but they are high end nba players. Sexton is a gamble, and Thompson is overpaid.

19 Aug 2018 02:34:04
OKC laughs and hangs up the phone! The only way they move Adams is for a star example Davis. He is under rated and not valued as much as he should be. He is the best offensive rebounder and if not the toughest, one of the toughest strongest players in the NBA. And he can defend the wing for an example look back at a rockets game he hangs with Harden and Paul and in the playoffs that will be very important.

20 Aug 2018 04:07:13
Adams ain't going nowhere for anyone.
