to orl: holiday
to no: bamba, mosgov, 16.

17 Jun 2019 18:04:21
Think he is worth more but bamba and zion could be scary on defense.

17 Jun 2019 14:02:34
ORL/ NOP

Orlando recieves: Soloman Hill, #4 Pick

NOP recieves: Bamba, #46 Pick

New Orleans has their starting five of the future and sheds salary for free agency

Orlando can resign Vuc and are given the option of resigning Ross or replacing him through the draft.

17 Jun 2019 18:07:45
I love it for magic. Doubt it happens.

16 Jun 2019 20:35:48
Rest of Pelicans off season

Trade

Pels - Domantas Sabonis, Pick #18

Pacers - Pick #4, E’twann Moore

Free Agents

Sign Nikola Vucivic 4 yr deal
Sign Nikola Mirotic 2 yr deal

Lineup

PG - Ball / Jackson
SG - Holiday / Hart
SF - Ingram / Hill
PF - Williamson / Mirotic
C - Vucivic/ Okefor.

16 Jun 2019 21:10:53
Doubt the Pelicans are signing both FAs with only $26 mil in cap space left. Vucevic by himself will get that amount. Unless you think the Pelicans can sign Mirotic on his second tour of duty with the MLE.

16 Jun 2019 21:27:06
How you have them use #4 pick on Sabonis (bad idea) and then don't even put him on depth chart? Lol.

16 Jun 2019 20:12:08
Pelicans Trade Lonzo Ball

Suns Trade 6 pick

Pelicans draft 1 pick-Zion Williamson 4 pick-DeAndre Hunter 6 pick-Cody White

16 Jun 2019 20:19:17
Rather Garland and then best forward/ guard.

16 Jun 2019 21:37:45
I'd go Garland at 4, then either Culver or Hunter at 6.

16 Jun 2019 22:14:31
For the millionth time ball isn't getting the 6th pick. If lucky mid to late first at best.

17 Jun 2019 01:04:12
Skills watch bulls trade 7th. They are dumb.

17 Jun 2019 01:32:55
Sun's could have made that trade with the Lakers why would they do it now?

17 Jun 2019 04:00:15
Skills - why do you think that? Reports are that Suns looking at Coby White at 6. Lonzo easily has more potential than White. Is it the extra two years of White on the rookie deal?

17 Jun 2019 11:14:10
It's the fact lonzo hasn't improved In the 2 years he's been in the league along with being injury prone. Also because one of the head reporters for the suns has said they refuse to give up the 6 for him. Apparently they want hunter Culver or reddish if they don't trade back then try and sign Russell if Irving goes to nets.

16 Jun 2019 15:08:09
Pelicans trade 4th pick, Hill, Moore
Pelicans get Drummond, 17th pick

Pistons trade Drummond, 15th pick
Pistons get 8th & 10th pick, Hill

Hawks trade 8th, 10th & 17th pick
Hawks get 4th & 15th pick, Moore

Pelicans:
Ball/Payton/Jackson
Holiday/Hart/Williams
Ingram/Miller
Zion/Diallo
Drummond/Okafor
- draft #1 Zion and #17 best available talent (Bitadze, K.Johnson, Claxton, Porter, Bol)
- resign Payton, Miller, Diallo & Okafor
- immediat contender for years to come

Pistons
Jackson/Smith
Kennard/Galloway/Myhailiuk
Reddish/Brown/Hill
Griffin/Leuer
Hayes/Maker
- draft #8 SF like Reddish/Hunter and #10 C like Hayes/Bitadze
- huge cap space 2020 (Jackson, Smith, Leuer, Galloway, Hill off the books)
- keep building around Griffin, Kennard, 8th (Reddish), 10th (Hayes), Brown, Maker, Myhailliuk

Hawks:
Trae/2nd round
Huerter/Bazemore/Moore
Hunter/Bembry/Crabbe
Collins/Spellman
Len/Bol/Plumlee
- draft #4 Hunter and #15 Bol or Bitadze
- add another high lottery pick in 2020
- also huge cap space in 2020 (Bazemore, Crabbe, Plumlee) to end rebuild and start contending

16 Jun 2019 16:02:37
The Pelicans need a stretch 5. Drummond is a bad fit next to Zion and they can get other guys significantly cheaper.

16 Jun 2019 12:50:18
Mavs off-season

sign Beverley 3y 30m

trade:
Mavs get Hill, Plumlee(use trade exception), 10th pick Hawks
Pelicans get 8th pick Hawks, 35th pick Hawks
Hawks get 4th pick Pelicans

resign KP 4year max, Powell 4y 60m, Kleber 3y 20m, Barea 1y 3m

Beverley/Brunson/Barea
Doncic/THJ/Lee
Justin Jackson/Hill
KP/Kleber
Powell/Plumlee
- draft wing with #10 (Reddish, Culver, Little) and #37 pick
- in 2020 off-season able to add last piece in FA (or trade) to finally become contender when Hill, Lee and Plumlee will be off the books (maybe trade THJ then expiring contract)

16 Jun 2019 15:04:12
For 1 yur not getting Beverley for 10 million. And 2 every dallas rumor has them getting a pg. Why would they want another pg when doncic controls the point? That's the whole reason they were trying to get rid of Smith jr last season.

16 Jun 2019 15:11:07
they were trying to get rid of Smmith jr because he needs the ball in his hands to be some kind of effective. Beverley does not and he is by far a better defender, which is what they need. He's a great fit at PG but maybe for more than 10m.

16 Jun 2019 15:17:47
Forma 90% of the rumors have dallas going after Walker. His game requires him to control the ball. To me dallas has far more concerns then pg.

16 Jun 2019 15:37:10
Beverly wants to play for the Bulls.

16 Jun 2019 11:21:43
lf warriors won't compete next year

GSW-NOP

GSW- Solomon Hill, Josh Hart, one of Lakers pick.
NOP- Andre İguadala, second round pick.

Pelicans can use iggy as a mentor for young player.

Second trade
GSW-NETS

Gsw- Joe Harris, Spencer Dinwiddie

Nets- Draymond Green and first round pick Gsw 2020 and a second

16 Jun 2019 11:57:00
why should Pelicans trade Hart and a 1st rounder for someone who is going to retire after next season?

16 Jun 2019 12:05:26
1 round for dumping hill. İguadala can help pelicans. He is good player and good defender. He is the definicion of profecional basketball player.

16 Jun 2019 12:24:02
Hill is on an expiring. Why would they need to dump him?

16 Jun 2019 13:53:48
Be easier to sign Vince Carter as mentor.

16 Jun 2019 11:00:31
Pelicans after AD-Trade

roster: (now)
Ball/Jackson
Holiday/Hart/Moore/Williams

X

own FA: Randle, Miller, Payton, Johnson, Okafor, Diallo, Clark, Smith
Draft: #1, #4, #39, #57

Let Randle, Johnson, Okafor, Clark and Smith walk

trade:
Pelicans get #8 & #17 pick
Hawks get #4 pick, #39

draft #1 PF Zion, #8 C Bitadze/Hayes/Bol, #17 PF Claxton/Clarke, #57 X
sign Dedmon to 2y 20m (veteran C presence who can mentor frontcourt players especially #8 pick)
resign Miller, Payton, Diallo to 2 year contracts

roster: (after off-season)
Ball/Payton/Jackson
Holiday/Hart/Williams
Ingram/Miller/Hill
Zion/Diallo/Claxton
Dedmon/Bitadze

16 Jun 2019 12:26:14
Unless o could get the 8 and 10, i’d tell Atlanta kick rocks.

16 Jun 2019 14:06:22
Kings will probably offer Dedmon more than that.


Also, the cap holds for those that you want to resign plus the cap hold for the #1 pick will use up all the Pelican's cap space before signing Dedmond.

16 Jun 2019 14:53:33
If the Pacers don't sign D'Angelo Russell, this is where you could see Myles Turner for Jrue Holiday. The Pelicans could trade the no. 4 pick to the Hawks for the no. 8 and no. 10. Hawks would want and get Culver. Pelicans would get Jackson Hayes and Zion's teammate Cameron Reddish.

16 Jun 2019 05:32:14
Pelicans Trade Solomon Hill Jrue Holiday 4 pick

Bulls Trade Zach Lavine Kris Dunn Christian Felicio

Pelicans sign NIkola Vucevic 4 yrs 130 millions

Elfrid Payton renounce right

Julius Randle renounce right

16 Jun 2019 06:11:50
Holiday is worth way more than that.

16 Jun 2019 06:53:06
No he don’t that a fair Trade.

16 Jun 2019 12:27:39
That deal is awful for the Pelicans. They’re giving up the best player and the 4th pick.

16 Jun 2019 14:08:35
Take out the 4th pick to make it fair.

16 Jun 2019 14:49:48
Holiday scores as much as lavine but plays defense and isn't hurt as often. Holiday is a proven guy not a one year wonder.

16 Jun 2019 04:46:30
Could now see the Hawks very interested in Pelicans 4th pick. Take back Hill plus 8 and Nets pick, maybe a second to sweeten it a little.

16 Jun 2019 02:13:38
Hawks - Holiday
Pelicans - Huerter and 10

Pels
1 - Zion
4 - Culver
10 - Bol Bol

Hawks
8 - Hunter
17- Kabengele

Ball
Culver/Huerter
Ingram
Zion
Bol Bol

Young
Holiday
Hunter
Collins
Kabengele

16 Jun 2019 06:14:13
Rather flip ball to magic or suns so Garland is the 4th pick.

16 Jun 2019 00:52:28
I think what happen will be:

Leonard may stay in Toronto or go to the Clippers?

Probably New York will trade:

- NY: Davis
- NO: BARRETT, Smith, Know, Robinson

NY signs Irving and Durant.

If not Irving and Durant will go to Brooklyn and AD may end up at Lakers somehow.

New Orleans will have a amazing young core in Robinson, Zion, (Randle maybe), Knox, Johnson, Barrett, Smith and Holiday or a return of him (maybe Suns pic to take White PG ?)

Since the Lakers will sign Butler and Cousins.

So the Mavs should target signs or trade:

Drummond or Valenciunas (Randle?)
Leonard, Middleton, Brogdon, Amuni or Lamb
Walker, Russell or Rubio.

A trade proposal will follow up!

16 Jun 2019 02:04:16
Well, that didn't take long to be wrong.

16 Jun 2019 03:26:22
AD is already a Laker.

16 Jun 2019 04:45:24
Ad to lakers is official.

OKC Thunder 2 offseason moves.

Move 1 OKC CAVS

OKC get Love, JR Smith
CAVS get Adams, Roberson, #21 pick

This trade has been rumored to work for both sides idk if it would. To me it makes since for both sides. OKC are in win now mode and even though Love can't stay healthy it might be worth taking the chance on him. They then cut JR and pay him only what's guaranteed so they save money in the deal. It makes since for Cavs they get a younger center who fits the rebuild age, and he stays way healthier than Love. While Adams does have a bad contract Love's contract is just as bad when u consider age and health.

Move 2 OKC ORL

OKC get Fournier
ORL get Schroder, Patterson, future 2nd if needed

OKC needs SG ORL needs PG. Both players are overpaid Fournier 17mil Schroder 15.5mil they both have 2 years left on their contract, and they are both bottom tier starters. Fournier does make more that is why Patterson is thrown in there. The two teams swap overpayed players to fill a position of need seems fair for both sides. OKC saves a lil more money which with the luxury tax bill every lil bit adds up quick.

They save about 9.5 mil from these trades, and add better 3 point shooting. They then fill out the rest of their roster with minimum contracts and their MLE in FA. If they can fix their depth in FA then this would give them a decent starting 5 to work with.

Westbrook
Fournier
George
Grant
Love.

15 Jun 2019 02:07:58
Magic say no. I am guessing Cavs say no. To expensive no good return.

15 Jun 2019 02:22:51
The Cavs can do better with just the jr contract.

Lakers - Pelicans - Thunder

Lakers gets:
Davis

Pelicans gets:
Adams
Ball
Ingram
Hart
21st pick (Thunder)

Thunder gets:
4th pick (Lakers)
Moore

14 Jun 2019 16:08:58
So the Pelicans give up the 4th pick and take on 17 million in the trade to get another guys that doesn’t fit next to Zion and locks them into having the worse shooting team in the league. Adams is not worth it.

14 Jun 2019 16:56:01
I'd probably rather have Moore than Adams straight up. Moore is an elite shooter.

14 Jun 2019 18:06:29
Adams + #21 + taking on Moore's salary = #4 pick?

Appears we are overvaluing Adams worth to non-OKC teams.

13 Jun 2019 22:43:29
Lakers Get: Anthony Davis

Bulls Get: Pick #4, Solomomn Hill

Pelicans Get: Zach Lavine, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, LA 2020 1st Rd, 2021 LA 1st Rd

LA gets there guy

Bulls grab Garland at 4 and still have pick #7 to add another piece

Pelicans get 3 young starters and multiple picks (I understand they won't be all that high)

13 Jun 2019 23:54:26
Use lube on the pelicans. Geez.

14 Jun 2019 00:47:55
So pels get 2 late first rounds a broken pg and guy with clots? Btw can't trade firsts back to back years.

14 Jun 2019 01:40:20
Lakers can't trade consecutive year first round picks. It would have to be #4, 2021 and 2023.

Also, you think Lavine + taking S. Hill's expiring salary = #4 pick? Please refresh my memory. What did Chicago give up to get Lavine?

13 Jun 2019 20:20:38
Does #4 + Ball get Conley?

So New Orleans can walkaway with Conley, Kuzma, Ingram and a future 1st for Davis?

13 Jun 2019 20:53:35
I honestly don’t like the Morant and Ball fit together.

13 Jun 2019 21:17:54
Trade ball after to Orlando or Chicago. The 4th puck and second help Memphis huge.

13 Jun 2019 17:56:18
Pelicans' way

1st trade:
Pelicans get Beal, Kuzma, future LA 1st
Lakers get AD, Moore
Wizards get Ingram, 4th pick

2nd trade:
Pelicans get Plumlee
Nuggets get future 1st for cap relief/flexibility (could cut Milsap and sign FA like Butler)

3rd trade (s&t):
Pelicans get Justin Holiday
Grizzlies get Hill, 2nd round pick

Resign Payton, Diallo, Okafor & Miller

Roster:
Holiday/Payton/Jackson
Beal/Holiday(FA)/Williams
Kuzma/Miller
Zion/Diallo
Plumlee/Okafor

13 Jun 2019 18:19:40
I don’t think the Lakers will want to take anyone back except for Davis.

13 Jun 2019 18:55:56
Beal>Ingram + #4 pick.

13 Jun 2019 17:47:20
Trade SZN

Pelicans - Trail Blazers - Lakers
Lakers receive - Anthony Davis , Moe Harkless
Pelicans receive - CJ Mccolum , 4th Pick , 25th Pick
Trail Blazers receive- Lebron

Trail Blazers do it to pair Lebron and Dame
Lakers move on from Lebron start rebuild with Davis.
Pelicans pair Jrue and CJ backcourt and gain 2 picks.

13 Jun 2019 17:50:37
Do we think davis wants to go to LA if lebron isn’t there?

13 Jun 2019 18:41:38
Who cares. If AD leaves Lakers have young core. Getting off lebron is a win.
