BOS get Porzingis

NYK get Irving

Agree1 Disagree6

18 May 2018 05:37:49
Heard a rumor Irving could end up a knick someday.

18 May 2018 15:54:19
Only way Irving leaves Boston is if he shoots his way out of town, like he did in Cleveland. He seems happy in Boston, for now anyway. As for Porzingis, he may not play at all this coming season.

LAL offseason, just want to ask if this is possible


LAL get Paul George (s&t)

OKC get Caldwell-Pope (s&t)

If PG leaves OKC will have a hard time signing free agents maybe a sign and trade will help both teams


LAL get Demarcus Cousins (s&t)

NOLA get Brook Lopez (s&t) & 2nd round pick

same explanation as above, Lopez can be a good fit in big man rotation of Pelicans

LAL resign Julius Randle and Isaiah Thomas (shorter deal for Thomas to prove himself first, i think he is a good friend of Demarcus?)

Here's my question, if sign and trade works? they don't need to shed Deng's salary to create space and sign players outright?

LAL 2018-19 roster

Pg Ball/Thomas/Ennis
Sg Ingram/Hart
Sf George/Wear/Deng
Pf Randle/Kuzma
Ce Cousins/Zubac/Bryant

You'd be forced to make salaries match if you have a trade that takes you over the soft cap like any other trade and that would include any cap holds like Randle. The only way it could possibly make a difference is if KCP or Lopez were near max players. I don't see the Pelicans or Thunder wanting those guys enough to give them anything near the max.

18 May 2018 04:33:37
Thanks for the input. How about Lakers send Ingram and Deng to OKC or NOLA then sign one of their stars? resign KCP Randle and Thomas, will it work?

18 May 2018 06:01:51
After a pretty lazy google search I couldn't find George or Cousins's max this offseason, but I assume they're around 30 million or possibly a little shy of that (the larger maxes are connected to bird rights and the team that drafted a player) . That would give the Lakers around another 30 million to spend. They could probably make that work as long as KCP or Randle don't end up with a larger than expected offer by someone else.

Also, It doesn't have to be a trade with OKC or NO. They could send Ingram and Deng anywhere with the cap space to take them.

18 May 2018 07:11:17
All that saying is Lakers would be hesitant to attach Ingram in a Deng deal. It could be hard to unload Deng without giving up values yes, but i think Ingram is too much of a price. I can see a special talent in Ingram that someday could be like a Paul George.

Cavs attempt to get another lottery pick

Cavs trade love Osman zizic future first for Wesley mattews, salah mejri, pick 5

Cavs trade into second round fir Jevon Carter

Draft mpj and bamba

If paul George leaves okc Matthews, clarckson,2 future seconds
Kevin love isn't worth Mavs pick alone so Mavs get to younger guys to develop and a future first

Porter Jr

Let me Kno what you think please don't leave childish names like lil joke

Agree0 Disagree4

17 May 2018 13:13:40
So with Boston media listing Green, Smith, Hill,and Clarkson as the most useless Cavs, any chance Lue Puts those 4 in the starting line up with Lebron? Anything to light a fire under his team's arses

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2018 16:12:57
Cavs could win a game or 2 but they can't push the pace and D up all series. Nothing is capable of lighting to big a fire to hurt the celtics except for injury.

17 May 2018 18:26:06
Hill and Smith will be in ththe starting line up, but they have been for the entire playoffs. Green will get playing time. He hasn't been awful. He's one of the few Cavs that have looked truly competent on defense consistently this series. Clarkson probably shouldn't even be in the rotation. He's been bad for most of the playoffs. He's probably shot the ball more times than he's passed it and he's a bad defender.

The Cavs probably needed to take game 2 to win the series, but I still can't see it going less than 6 games. The Celtics haven't been nearly as good on the road as they have at home in the playoffs. Which isn't much of a surprise with how young their team is right now. I don't think the Cavs are completely done, but the lack of effort at times has me pretty skeptical that they can pull out a game on the road.

18 May 2018 01:20:06
Things could change on a dime, but right now it doesn't look like Cleveland wants to make the 48-minute rotation defensive commitment to win four of the next five games. That's a major problem right now because Celtics ball movement is creating too many uncontested shots. On the other end of the court just the opposite is happening.

16 May 2018 22:08:22
U want Leonard Sixers fans give up Simmons if they can get Porzingis than you already know Leonard top 5 players

Agree1 Disagree7

17 May 2018 03:15:38
Speak English please.

17 May 2018 10:58:03
Despite the awkward syntax, the point is valid -- to get Leonard, Philly would need to give up Simmons (or Embiid) . Everything after the word Simmons is jibberish.

17 May 2018 12:28:06
Why is the price so high for a guy who doesn't want to be where he is and will be a free agent in 1 year?

17 May 2018 16:11:34
Leonard tradesvalue is lower than his talent.

17 May 2018 16:18:23
Smunro, spurs are a small market and need to get all they can out of Leonard. Asking price will be high especially if Kawhi agrees to an extension. A physical, and simple workout will cast aside any doubts a team may have on his health. Relationships sour. Divorces happen everyday.

17 May 2018 17:27:38
Why would Kawhi agree to an extension? Even if he goes to a hand picked team, why would he give himself more value to the Spurs? The less the team gives up for him, the better supporting cast he will have. Also, why would he give himself less options? If he goes to a team and it doesn't turn out to be a good fit, he can still walk.

18 May 2018 02:15:55
Are the spurs going to pay Kawhi the max 200 plus million because if they are he will stay or at least sign with the spurs then ask for a transfer then Kawhi gets his coin either way.

18 May 2018 05:55:41
Rkeene_16 because I'm stupid and your smart. Thanks for your reply.

Pels offseason

Trade #1

Pels - 2nd round pick (38)

76ers - Solomon Hill

Trade #2

Pels - Kent Brazemore, 2nd round pick (33)

Hawks - Alexei Ajainca (Waive) Future 2nd round pick

Philly dumps 1 of its 5 2nd round picks for a good defensive player for next season postseason run and the Pels clear cap

Atlanta clears Brazemores contract and playing spot as they go full rebuild to give the younger guys more playing time and the Pels can absorb The difference in Ajainca and Brazemore deal from the Solomon Deal

Pels add Two 2nd round picks giving them 3 total to add young players to develop and come off the bench

Free Agents

Resign DeMarcus Cousins
Resign Rajon Rondo
Sign Gerald Green 2 yr deal


PG - Rondo - Jackson
SG - Holiday - Moore
SF - Brazemore - Green - Miller
PF - Davis - Mirotic
C - Cousins - Diallo

With the 3 2nd round picks add players who could contribute off the bench

With small market, small budget Pels this could work.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 May 2018 22:20:28
Sixers are not taking on cap, they are trying to clear a little more to pursue LBJ or PG.

16 May 2018 22:26:22
Waive ajinca its only 5 mil or buyout, hill wasn't 100% yet in the playoffs, I like his defense, and if he regains his 40% from 3 form, a better option and cheaper than bazemore. Getting a wing for Pels is a good play but not bazemore or fournier. J. Simmons would be perfect in n. o. I think.

16 May 2018 23:45:29
Pels need to send a pick to unload Hill.

17 May 2018 19:13:48
Agree with xxx, no one is giving up anything to get Hill, he has 2 years left at 12 million and has never really played up to his contract.

16 May 2018 21:32:21
My lottery mock draft based on Best Fit AND Best Player Available

1- Suns: Luka Doncic
2- Kings: DeAndre Ayton
3- Hawks: Jaren Jackson jr
4- Grizzlies: Muhammad Bamba
5- Mavs: Marvin Bagley III
6- Magic: Trae Young
7- Bulls: Michael Porter jr
8- Cavs: Mikal Bridges
9- Knicks: Miles Bridges
10- 76ers: Wendell Carter
11- Hornets: Collin Sexton
12- Clippers: Kevin Knox
13- Clippers: Robert Williams
14- Nuggets: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Agree0 Disagree2

17 May 2018 05:38:05
Looks about 80-90% likely. Almost impossible to get 10/ 10 in the first round. Teams change their mind based on one good workout.

18 May 2018 04:56:00
I can't see the Suns passing on Ayton even with Doncic's coach. I'm pretty sure I saw the gm and owner both went to Arizona or had some kind of connection to the college and there is the obvious connection that he's the hometown guy. That's not even to mention the upside of his size and athleticism combo. I also think that Ayton is a safer pick for a gm and I don't mean that Ayton has less bust potential than Doncic. Doncic is probably the safest pick in the draft, but if Doncic busts you look really bad and it's not even going to come down to how good Ayton is. If Doncic is good, he's going to get compared to how good Ayton is. If Ayton busts, the gm can say he took the consensus number 1 and the guy with the highest ceiling. It's a lot harder to blame a gm for taking a physical freak like Ayton.

The only other thing I could really nit pick is that Bagley probably goes top 4. Particularly, I can't see Memphis taking Bamba over Bagley after showing such commitment to Gasol.

Sexton and Carter seem like pretty big wild cards. I really wouldn't be surprised if they went any where between 5 and 14.

16 May 2018 01:26:50
So the Kings get #2 pick, they can draft Luca Doncic to be their franchise cornerstone.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 May 2018 05:52:10
Igor Koskov will push for luka doncic. Ayton gets really bad scouting reports defensively. Say he looks disinterested in playing defense of any kind. Being pushed by the media a lot too. Makes me wonder. Scouting says bagley is the better choice all around other than size. All agree doncic is fantastic. I don't know for sure, other than ayton was non-existent in the 1 tourney game, and bagley played pretty good in many.

17 May 2018 23:30:38
Still trying to get used to an NBA coach being named Igor.

14 May 2018 16:50:12
I just wanted to revisit this potential trade I've seen a few times on here and see what side of the fence people are falling on.

What I've seen is Tatum, Brown, Rozier and usually a pick from Boston for the Spurs' Leonard.

I've personally been against it, as I think Brown and Tatum can each be as good a player as Leonard, and I think people are finally starting to see that potential. To be clear, this is not me thinking Leonard isn't great, he's a very good player. I just think Brown and Tatum have the chance to be really special as well, and I'm already drooling over a potential Irving/Brown/Hayward/Tatum/Horford death lineup.

Most folks seem to have been pretty solidly on the "do that trade for Leonard" side, but I have to think that the last few weeks have to have swung that back to at least even...thoughts?

Agree3 Disagree3

14 May 2018 17:32:16
There is no way that deal goes down. Absolutely none. In fact, the Celtics might not do Tatum for Leonard even up.
No one knows what's going on in Leonard's mind, and if he has no problem screwing over the Spurs, he might do the same to Boston. Plus, he'll demand a max deal -- which would make it impossible to re-sign Kyrie Irving.
Maybe the Spurs could get Irving or Brown for Leonard. Or Rozier and a pick. But three starters and a pick? Not even close.

14 May 2018 17:59:44
Agree with collider, salary alone makes this deal unreasonable given the performance of the celts. Maybe Hayward straight up. I would wait and see how good Hayward is first though. Celts are really good.

15 May 2018 02:52:56
no way brown and tatum, toughest part is c’s matching kawhi salary, hayward horford irving have to be off the table, and those are their only 3 salaries over 10 mil. i think tatum+morris+rozier gets you to the 75%, i'd take that for kawhi if a better offer doesn't come thru.

15 May 2018 05:07:00
Hayward and a pick. I say sorry Stevens we getting Leonard.

15 May 2018 10:23:15
Boston should keep Tatum and Brown, they could trade Hayward for Leonard.

16 May 2018 22:19:59
Hayward Irving for Leonard Mills.

14 May 2018 06:53:14
What are the worst contracts in the nba at the moment

Agree1 Disagree0

14 May 2018 07:36:47
Parsons, batum, Whiteside, Dieng, Noah, deng, mozgov, turner, Cody zeller, m. Leonard.

14 May 2018 17:11:29
tristan thompson, kyle lowry (will be owed 33 mil his age 34 season), gallinari, allen crabbe (no way he turns down that 18.5 po for 2020), valanciunas, fournier, biyombo, mahinmi, blake griffin.

15 May 2018 09:07:47
Hopefully Mike Conley doesn’t get injured again next season at 153 million He could be finding himself on that list.

17 May 2018 19:33:19
Ibaka, Plumlee, T. Johnson, possibly John Wall ( he'll make 43 million in the last year of his deal), Anderson, P Gasol's isn't looking great, Andrew Wiggins's max deal might end up being fairly bad, and Knight are some I didn't notice on the other lists.
