Pelicans do a sign and trade with Washington ( D. Cousins for Otto Porter and Ian Mahinmi )

Pelicans trade first round draft pick, Solomon Hill and Alexus Ajinca to Houston for restricted free agent Clint Capello so that Houston has cap space to make a run at Lebron or Paul George or Kawhi Leonard.

Pelicans then sign restricted free agent Dante Exum and if Utah wants something in return we give them our 4 million dollar cash MLE, Eton Moore and second round
pick for a sign and trade.

Pelicans roster then is!

PG Rondo/Exum
SG Holiday/Frank Jackson/Jordan Crawford
SF Otto Porter/ Darrius Miller/Deandre Liggins
PF Davis/ Nikola Mirotic
C Clint Capello/ Cheick Diallo

And the Pelicans then have cap room to sign more reserve players.

20 Jun 2018 13:13:43
The deal with Houston actually hurts their cap space, as Capela’s cap hold is less than Hill’s and Ajinca’s salaries. Makes no sense for the Rockets.

20 Jun 2018 13:40:28
I don't think that Capela thing is going to come to fruition, but I really like that Cousins idea! I think the one thing Washington has been lacking is a dominant center, even though I really like what Gortat brings. Cousins would also get to play with Wall, which both would love, and they do have Oubre who should be able to step up into the starting lineup.

For New Orleans, I think it was a good experiment, but Davis is better off as the lone tower. Mahinmi will be a guy who can come in and either play next to him for a little bit or provide that defensive presence when Davis is on the bench. Porter will give them another scorer, giving Rondo a plethora of targets on the offensive end.

Stretch Parsons 5 yrs

20 Jun 2018 04:02:22
If you think that package gets you Kawhi AND pick 18, you’re nuts.

20 Jun 2018 04:45:30
Eh if I'm San Antonio there's probably much better offers for Kawhi, why trade 18 for pick 4 and role players when you can get Jaylen Brown (who would be a perfect fit on the Spurs) and at least another lottery pick if not a bit more from Boston. Also I would be shocked if Porter Jr. falls to 8, too many teams are interested in him ahead of the Cavs.

20 Jun 2018 13:15:27
lil j, you can’t stretch a guy you deal for.

Bulls trade pelicans

Pelicans get lopez,marrkanen,valentine #7 and #22

Bulls get A.Davis

This trade gives bulls chance to sign another max contract george or James
Then its up to lavine to sign for less to win with bulls.

Starting 5

Bulls could be elite just on the defensive side dunn, james and davis are all good on defense and can score.

For the pelicans they can resign cousins who can play next to marrkanen and now they have draft picks to get gaurds and wings

19 Jun 2018 04:23:05
Davis is basically untouchable.

19 Jun 2018 04:24:15
guarantee boston has a better offer on the table for davis rn.

19 Jun 2018 15:06:47
I actually don't hate this as much as I would have expected. There would obviously need to be more picks thrown in, but the basic structure is actually pretty solid. It would have to be done on draft night, because New Orleans would have to know that the player they want would be available at 7. There are only a couple of guys in this draft that would make sense for this trade, and that's probably Doncic and Porter. Either of them could slide into the Pelicans lineup and it would be a good fit.


This of course would have to be if they don't see Davis staying long-term. After their playoff push this year, I don't see that being a big concern, but like David West pointed out, there are always things going on that we rarely see.

Boston could put together a better package, of course, but I don't know that they would. This one works in both directions, and any accepted combination of players the Celtics move would be more than they would be willing to give I think.

19 Jun 2018 17:27:27
Tell you what, Boston can keep their package, although it would be FAR better than this Chicago package,

18 Jun 2018 11:54:14

ORL: 4th pick + C.Parsons

MEM: 35th pick + J.Simmons + N.Vucevic

18 Jun 2018 15:28:00
Memphis already has M Gasol, so they have no intrest in receiving a similar (less talented) center.

15 Jun 2018 05:25:27

Only AD trade to the Warriors that NOLA should even consider

Warriors get Anthony Davis and Alexis Ajinca

Pelicans get Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Jordan Bell, and a first round pick

I still wouldn't do this if I'm NOLA. AD is such a special talent and will likely take over as the best player in the world when LBJ declines. However, this is one of the best packages they could possibly get for him. Klay and Draymond are very valuable players who could keep the Pelicans relevant or be traded for high quality assets if they decided to re-build. The Dubs would have the best big 3 ever but would have depth issues around those three.

14 Jun 2018 13:22:28
If and when the Pels decide to deal Davis, it most likely will not be to a Western Conference team.

14 Jun 2018 13:30:07
In my opinion, the Pelicans would be getting fleeced in this trade. Klay has never had to play being the best shooter on a team. Without having to give Steph all the attention, teams can focus their energy on shutting down Klay. I see Klay as a mix between McCollum and Bradley without Steph. The value of the first round pick though would be hogwash.

If anything, there is an upgrade from Alexis to Jordan (however, the Pels lose height in this trade which may be concerning if they can't one up with DeMarcus) . I think it's a realistic trade, but not one worth making for the Pels!

14 Jun 2018 16:02:14
This is a classic example of a rumor mill trade idea started on GSW fan gages. The trade actually makes no sense for either team. I also agree w SuperCollider that you don't deal AD to a team that won back to backs.

14 Jun 2018 18:18:55
Chicago i bet he wants to come home and he has invested money in a company so idk if money would matter plus Chicago is a young and rising team with Lebron maybe going west would help us get closer when we had to battle with Lebron with rose noah.

14 Jun 2018 19:51:20
Money doesn't matter? Pels can offer a Supermax which exceeds anything AD can make elsewhere by 85 million. He's invested in several NOLA businesses also. He ain't leaving and the Pels ain't trading him.

14 Jun 2018 23:08:45
He wants to come play east is easier Plath to finals he’s from Chicago he’s invested a lot of money into a computer company.

14 Jun 2018 08:23:03
longshot but if Pelicans can pull this off they are going to match the Warriors


HOU get Cousins (s&t)

NOLA get Paul (s&t)


NOLA get Dunn & Faried (waive)
* save money and get back a young guard

DEN get Holiday & Asik (waive)
* finally get their point guard

CHI get Malik Beasley, Chandler, Plumlee, 14th & 2nd from NOLA
* take salaries to gain pick

NOLA trade Hill & future 1st to ATL for 2nd rd pick

then NOLA sign LBJ to max

sign Bellineli & Crawford
Brook Lopez MLE

NOLA new roster

Pg Paul/Dunn
Sg Moore/Crawford
Sf James/Bellineli/Miller
Pf Mirotic/Diallo
Ce Davis/Lopez/Ajinca

14 Jun 2018 16:12:14
If the Pels pulled that off they would build a statue of Dell Demps.

14 Jun 2018 23:29:35
Just resign cousins and trade Teague and some players for paul.

14 Jun 2018 10:48:45
Boston hasn't enough cap to sign PG13 to a max contract.

And The Pelicans would want Tatum or J Brown and the sacramento pick to do this.

14 Jun 2018 13:25:57
That is a straight trash offer for AD.

14 Jun 2018 14:21:27
Keep dreaming.

Knicks get super star point guard Irving , and starting and back up sg

Pelican gets replacement for Couisin ,starting sf , sg, back up c and Pf far trade

14 Jun 2018 12:43:44
The Wizards are getting way to much and the Knicks get to much. The Cavs probably turn that down and the Pelicans would turn it down, but they wouldn't have to because it's illegal to trade extra players in a s and t. Boston would have to think pretty hard about it.

13 Jun 2018 22:21:51


Pelicans-klay thompson,draymond green,GSW 2018 1st R pick

14 Jun 2018 01:13:18
i think both teams say no.

14 Jun 2018 01:34:16
This is the only fair trade for AD from the Warriors I believe.

13 Jun 2018 22:19:12


Pelicans-Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier, Al Horford, Guerschon Yabusele, Sac 2019 1st R pick

14 Jun 2018 01:25:08

Just stop. Cavs will be bottom feeders again next year. You got your one. Just let it go.

13 Jun 2018 18:57:30
Rondo is staying with Pels, d. green is not opting out of 10mil with san antonio no matter what he says.

13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
MY MOCK DRAFT - Lottery Teams

1. PHX - Deandre Ayton
2. SAC - Mohammed Bamba
3. ATL - Trae Young
4. MEM - Michael Porter
5. DAL - Marvin Bagley
6. ORL - Collin Sexton
7. CHI - Luka Doncic
8. CLE - Jaren Jackson Jr.
9. NYK - Mikal Bridges
10. PHI - Zhaire Smith
11. CHA - Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
12. LAC - Miles Bridges
13. LAC - Wendell Carter
14. DEN - Kevin Knox
15. WAS - Robert Williams

13 Jun 2018 12:48:40
No way Doncic falls to number 7.

13 Jun 2018 12:49:34
And JJJ to number 8.

13 Jun 2018 13:06:31
Kings won't draft bamba, they already have someone very similar.

13 Jun 2018 13:12:53
With Doncic unwillingness to work out for teams, he could fall a bit, but I don’t see Sexton being drafted before him.

Jackson seems to be rising, not falling in the draft, he won’t last that long.

13 Jun 2018 13:45:45
my thoughts are Bamba could be seen as "raw" generational talent to some, and who's similar WCS? No way

Magic need a PG bad so that's why Sexton, most drafts have them getting Trae but Hawks seem to be high on him

Doncic i couldn't find a right fit, i think he's the 2nd most NBA ready player.

Where do you see JJJ going TBH I don't know too much about him

13 Jun 2018 15:03:36
I think #1 Ayton, #2 JJJ, #3 Bamba, #4 Bagley, #5 Porter, #6 Doncic


#1 Ayton, #2 JJJ, #3 Doncic, #4 Bagley, #5 Bamba, #6 Porter

Doncic is the 2nd most NBA ready player, and can play 1-4 but may slip because he can't workout for NBa teams because he is still in playoffs. But he won't slip past 6 at most.

13 Jun 2018 16:12:24
I would say Doncic is too low, and Sexton is a bit too high, but he really is a wild card. I could see JJJ going around 8 mostly because of the talent level of the people ahead of him. On talent, it's a pretty solid lottery this season. If Doncic starts to slip like that fit won't matter though. Someone will trade up to get him.

13 Jun 2018 15:50:24
I love Jackson. He's an elite defender that can switch on tonalmost anyone without it being a big mismatch. He can do it all on that end. Think Horford, Green or Millsap on that's end. I get the Bamba hype, but If I had to put money on which one willl be the better defender I go JJJ. He's an elite shot blocker and far more versatile wing defender. On offense, he didn't put up huge numbers, but the guy is a great athlete, he can run the floor, he can finish, and he has legitimate 3 point range. He's more of a project on that end, but he can come in day one and be a great role player next to a ball dominant guy that grows in to a great offensive player. I can't see him faking farther than 5 and I think letting him slip past 3 would be a bad idea.

13 Jun 2018 16:36:10
Soxfan, I'd be giddy if Jackson fell to the Cavs. The guy has the chance to be the best bigman in this draft. He's going to be an absolute monster on the defensive end. He's an elite shot blocker that can lock guys down on the perimeter. Plus, he can come in and be a good role player on offense. He's a better shooter than any of the other bigs at the top of this draft. He's also a good finisher. You can plug him in on any playoff team and he can help them from day 1. Honestly, he's the perfect big for Boston to move up and get. He reminds me a lot of Horford.

13 Jun 2018 19:19:52
if luka somehow makes it past memphis, dallas will trade the pick, but memphis could trade out too. porter and young before bagley is absurd. same goes for jackson 8th, if he hits 5th, dallas should be taking calls.

19 Jun 2018 16:56:10
No way the Mavs let Doncic get passed them.

13 Jun 2018 08:10:57
Pelicans trade - Hill, Diallo, and Jackson
Hawks trade - Bazemore

Pelicans draft - Justin Jackson at 51

Sign - Mario Chalmers, Amir Johnson, and Joe Johnson


13 Jun 2018 19:02:30
Bazemore is terrible on a terrible contract. Diallo and Jackson are worth more than him alone. I'd take hill over bazemore anyday.

13 Jun 2018 06:42:05
Lakers trade
Randle S&T
Future 1st round pick
Sign LBJ
Sign PG

Pelicans trade
Boogie S&T
Sign smart

Lakers get a big name to help draw in LBJ and PG and pelicans get a cheaper younger player who started making noise towards the end of the year along with a future 1st.

Boogie/ Lopez

Holiday/ Clark
AD/ Diallo

12 Jun 2018 06:01:23
PHX Super Team:

LeBron S&T...

Cavs: Dragon Bender, Tyson Chandler ,Brandon Knight , pick #16


Pelicans: Josh Jackson, Dragon Bender, Marquese Chriss, Jared Dudley, pick #1, 2021 Unprotected 1st rounder (via MIA)

Suns: Paul George


PG: Elfrid Payton
SG: Devin Booker
SF: Paul George
PF: LeBron James
C: Anthony Davis

12 Jun 2018 07:01:38
That team would be nasty but it is very hard to build them.

12 Jun 2018 11:26:24
You can’t trade Bender twice.

12 Jun 2018 23:24:59
Pelicans give up AD for a bunch of guys that can't shoot. yeah that makes perfect sense.

12 Jun 2018 23:58:27
You could probably take him out of the Pels trade and add in future 2s.

11 Jun 2018 03:01:19

11 Jun 2018 00:58:49
Bos - Nop - Mem

Boston get Anthony Davis

Memphis get Gordon Hayward

New Orleans get from Memphis : 4th pick, Dillon Brooks and Chandler Parsons and from Boston : Terry Rozier and 2019 Sac, Mem and LaC picks

Only if Cousins leave for nothing

11 Jun 2018 01:42:14
Not getting davis no matter what. Cousins for heyward maybe.

11 Jun 2018 04:31:54
bad trade really they can get way more for Davis.
they just need to sign some free agents and do a sign and trade with cousin . something like cousin to Portland for CJ and first rounder.

at least they get a young SG who can score and blazer get another star with lillard for a few more years.

11 Jun 2018 15:43:21
You definitely shot an Airball on this proposal. A bunch of picks and a bad contract for a Superstar. What part of Boston are you from?
