Interesting that the Knicks are much better without Anthony and the Thunder are much worse with him.

I'm not a fan of Melo, but I'm not sure he's the main reason for either.

Agree2 Disagree2

I do think that he is the main reason the Knicks are better not solely on his play but just his presence and all the drama of the trade rumors being gone definitely are the reason they are doing better.

What is the most you would be willing to trade for MJ in his prime from your favorite team. *hes on a 1 year deal and could walk at the end of the season.

For the Cavs, I would Say, Love, IT, Zizic, Osman, the Brooklyn pick, a current pick swap, 2020 pick swap, unprotected 2021 pick, and a 22 pick swap.

Cavs pass. Okafor isn't a good fit and has little value any ways. Also, he struggles to be athletic enough to play center. He has no chance to play pf.

Wo should the Wolves take if they could redo the 2015 draft.
KAT or Porzingis ?

Agree4 Disagree3

20 Nov 2017 08:58:54
100% towns just my opinion though.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Nov 2017 15:10:36
I think Porzingis is the better option for the moment.
But maybe that's because i'm European :-) :-) :-)

Both are great scorers and good defenders
KAT is more athletic and a better rebounder.
Porzingis is the better 3-point shooter and shotblokker.

What position and what player will celtics strengthen up with the disable player exemption

Agree5 Disagree0

19 Nov 2017 11:02:06
Can't see Boston making a move until around the All-Star game. By then they'll have a good idea about depth at each position. More importantly, they'll know where they stand against the Cavs, and how they can exploit Cleveland's weaknesses. Corey Brewer isn't getting many minutes with the Lakers. He's only 31 and might have enough left in his legs to defend James for short stretches in the playoffs. The other option is to bring in a banger if Baynes runs out of gas or gets nicked up.

Agree1 Disagree3

19 Nov 2017 16:42:34
I think they need more scoring. Similar to their team last year (since Hayward got hurt), I just don't see who is going to score during crunch time in the playoffs outside of Irving. They need another player who can come in and consistently create his own shot. If they don't go after another star this year, someone like Lou Williams would be a nice addition.

Agree2 Disagree1

20 Nov 2017 09:51:41
What about Monty Ellis he can get buckets or if deng gets bought out maybe try him.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2017 19:33:19
I don't think Ellis has enough left at this point.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Nov 2017 08:20:26
Maybe 2 years ago, I just don't think he has much left at this point. His production was slowly dipping for years and then last year, he was significantly worse and so far
This year he's fallen off a cliff. If he gets bought out, he may be worth a try, but I think Boston needs a guy that can come in and give them 15 to 20 opposite Irving most nights and doesn't need sets or Irving to get it. That's why I mentioned Williams, he can do it and he would be fairly cheap. Theoretically, if the Lakers want to get rid of Clarkson, he could be another option.

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Nov 2017 22:06:48
What deals can the bulls make for Robin Lopez and if any takers want Nikola Mirotic what draft picks could they get and or any players they could absorb since their under the cap.

Agree6 Disagree0

18 Nov 2017 00:27:18
Deng is the most likely to be dealt, although LA will want expirings or cap space. I think it will take atleast a first and Randle to move Deng and probably something else.

Reports are the Knicks would like to move Noah and may have some interest in Mirotic. Again it would take some fairly significant assets to get someone to take on Noah.

As a Cavs fan, they could use Lopez, but only if he comes fairly cheap. Something like a lottery protected pick.

I'm not sure what Mirotic is worth, but anyone who needs shooting could use him.

Agree10 Disagree0

18 Nov 2017 02:03:19
Would they trade the nets pick for Lopez and Mirotic for nets pick n shump.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Nov 2017 03:46:52
Nothing short of an allstar level player is going to get the Cavs to trade the Nets pick.

Agree4 Disagree2

18 Nov 2017 12:14:29
Knicks would have to give up there 2919 1st for Noah would the bulls just buy him out?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2017 13:21:23
In my opinion, it would take more than just a 2019 first unless it looks like it will be in the top half of the lottery.

They couldn't buy Noah out though. He still has 3years 72ish million left on his contract. They would have to keep him through atleast next year.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Nov 2017 14:11:03
2018 first pick as well?

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Nov 2017 16:13:09
It all depends. If they plan on keeping the Brooklyn pick no matter what, the 2018 pick is very expendable, since they won't need their pick to trade the Brooklyn pick. Lopez would be a really solid addition for the Cavs. I think Osman and Zizic would be on the table for sure. Osman is a player that has the upside to become a Danny Green with more pg skills and Zizic has the upside to decent big man.

Agree4 Disagree1

18 Nov 2017 18:38:02
No i mean the Knicks 2018 1st.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2017 00:06:13
If they take on Noah, it would have to be atleast the Knicks current pick to do it and most likely more.

Agree3 Disagree1

19 Nov 2017 06:16:14
Could the bulls then stretch Noah’s contract?

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Nov 2017 06:17:55
Thibs is too blame for Deng rose noahs declining game played too many minutes next watch he breaks Jimmy Butler down none of this world of happened if he took rose out with that lead vs 76ers.

Agree0 Disagree2

19 Nov 2017 16:33:19
I don't believe they could stretch Noah. The rules for
A stretch are extremely specific and I don't see the point given that they'll be bad for the for the foreseeable future. They're better off having all of the cap space back in 3 years rather than paying part of his contract when they might be a free agent destination and have a chance to be competitive.

Steve Kerr made a statement about the Celtics dominating the East in the years to come, maybe starting as early as this year...(in a nutshell). So I like playing devils advocate. They're well coached, youth is on their side BUT, the Cavs could be on to something. I'm the same person that's been saying trade Lebron because he's a goner but now that I look at it, that would be crazy! I was saying build around(best case) IT, Thompson, Love and (Porter Jr) BK pick...But add Lebron to that mix. But I would trade Jr and Shump for Burks and Johnson from Utah. Any package netting those two in return. Johnson is old but he has an expiring contract and can come back for the vet min if the situation works out. Burks out of the rotation in Utah and could be a perfect fit with IT in the backcourt for years to come.
This roster keeps Boston at bay for 3-5 years and that's being generous to Boston because Porter is a beast. Even as early as next year if the Cavs draft him, you can build around him immediately and Lebron wouldn't be mad. Stretch 4 in Love, defensive big in TT, killer instinct with IT and ultimate playmaker in Lebron: perfect surroundings to groom a superstar.
I always said if the C's gave up that pick, it should've been for AD23. After the Lebron (playing) era and all the veterans that comes along with him, no telling who's going to want to come on board. Lebron in a front office spot immediately after retiring wouldn't be a bad move. He has ties with so many young players as is....that's why I had him going to L.A to learn that side from Magic but he could figure it on the fly cause this opportunity is too good to pass

Agree4 Disagree2

17 Nov 2017 19:14:33
There is no way LeBron stays. And to get to your point that players want to play with him, I think that is beginning to disappear, other then his buddys (CP3, Melo, Wade) . Irving has shown so far this year that he doesn't need LeBron. I personally feel that LeBron isn't able to carry a team like he used to. He needs another player that he can defer to, to help lead the offense. Obviously LeBron is still LeBron right now but I think he is starting to wear down a little with all the basketball he's played over the years. He needs a second superstar and since he wants to win another ring he is going to need to leave Cleveland to get that superstar.

Agree3 Disagree4

17 Nov 2017 22:07:51
Too early in the season to make decisions like that Cleveland need Thomas to be playing first to see we're they are at . As for Boston remember these guys brown Tatum, Smart, Rozier are improving big time and in 2 to 4 years they are peaking not to mention Kyrie still only 25.

Agree6 Disagree0

17 Nov 2017 23:07:46
Irving doesn’t need Lebron. His skill set fits better with a young, running, athlete squad like what they have in Boston. He saw the opportunity and knew that the Cavs were only getting slower and was relying more on experience come playoff time. You saw when Solver made the announcement about resting players, Kyrie was the first to chime in. He’s young. He want to push the tempo. That’s his style.

Dallas and the Pistons were the only two teams to win a “ship” with 1 or less superstars. You right. The talent pool makes it impossible to do it by yourself. But come playoff time, the only thing I worry about Lebron is his free throw percentage.

The wear and tear will come down once JR and Shump find a new home and IT comes in. They need a change of scenery. It’s easy to get complacent after 1 ring and it clearly shows. When TT comes back, the D will get better even though it wasn’t that great when he was there.

I’m a Lakers fan and would love for Bron to come with DMC and PG13 but at this point in his career, winning means more for his brand than location. The only player that applies to. Take any other superstar and put them in L. A, endorsements, brand building, the whole nine. Zo can score 2 points but can have 6 highlights on sports center while Clarkson or Kuzma can have combined 50 and not one shout out. lol That’s what L. A does. But as long as Lebron keeps winning in Cleveland, he will be at the top looking down. That’s why he’s the king. He’s fine where he is unless that pick gets traded or the Celtics win the East without Gordon. Obviously I don’t see either happening.

Agree6 Disagree1

18 Nov 2017 03:36:44
The only way the Cavs should give up the Brooklyn pick is if it's in a deal for a high level defensive center and another perimeter defender or for Cousins. The Celtics have looked good so far, but in the playoffs everyone will be playing defense and without Hayward, the Celtics are in a similiar position as they were last year. Lebron leaving isn't a forgone conclusion. There just isn't a clear destination without a lot happening and no matter how the Cavs have looked at times (they're on a 4 game winning streak with a ton of injuries and while still not looking interested for long stretches) it's not like the Cavs aren't stacked.
