Forgot to add on reasoning:
*Warriors might do this if they feel Green is not a part of their future (I personally don’t think so) . Sure he brings the firepower and defense, but he’s also a turnover machine and limited on offense and creates controversy. Swapping him with Randle, who is younger and slightly resembles Draymond, and add Bradley who could be a great two way player off the bench.

*Pelicans might do this because a Green-Davis combo is very lethal, and adding Hood at the 3 adds firepower to their offense. Losing Randle hurts, but I think Green is a better partner for AD. They also rid of Hill’s contract and the first they lose doesn’t look to be very valuable (probably would put top 20 protection on it) .
*Cavs might do this mainly for the picks. Taking on extra salary next season will hurt, but they basically swap two guys they were probably not going to resign into a first. They are in rebuild mode, and it makes sense to trade players who will not be apart of their future, knowing they could get a first for them.

*Clippers might do this simply for the cap space. They are a likely destination for the NBA’s top FA’s since they’re in LA and not the team led by Bron. It would make sense for Gallo to be traded, but Bradley’s contract more versatile since it is cheaper and not a risk as much since Gallo has had injuries. But off topic, a three-team Trade with Gallo heading to Philly (taking back Chandler of course and Fultz heads to whoever wants him) to me would be the most realistic trade to get Gallo off the books since Philly needs a stretch 4.

Portland - Davis and Hill

Pelicans - McCollum, Harkless, Swanigan, Trent, Collins & pick(s)



11 Dec 2018 20:51:43
Not enough high end pieces. McCollum is a weird asset (like Griffin, Love, etc), where he's not incredibly valuable to a rebuilding team, but can be difficult to move for good value to a team that could actually use him to contend.

That said, a Lillard/ Davis pairing would be incredibly fun to watch.

11 Dec 2018 21:22:49
"Picks" better be their first round pick for the next 20 years. That is just awful.

13 Dec 2018 16:36:16
Everyone should just stop AD isn't being trade this season.

11 Dec 2018 13:05:42
Pelicans Trade Solomon Hill 2019 first round pick (unprotected)

Kings Trade Willie Cauley-Stein Bogdan Bogdanovich

Kings willing to take any offers

But first round pick have to be included

Salary Match

What y'all think?

11 Dec 2018 13:31:38
Think kings are trying to make playoffs snd won't trade 2 of their top 6 guys to help pelicans. I think kings might end the year with more wins than pelicans.

11 Dec 2018 13:35:51
Why does Sacramento do this?

11 Dec 2018 13:50:52
Kings say, "Ahhhhhhh, No! "

Bogdan is valued higher than that in Sacramento. Team's top 4 player.

Spurs - Lin and Okafor
Pelicans - Pondexter
Hawks - Gasol(waive) and 2 spurs 2nds


09 Dec 2018 18:41:02
Pelicans send N. Mirotic and a 2019 unprotected first.

Bucks send K. Middleton.

Following the Middleton blow up the Bucks swap expirings for one of the best complimentary 4s and floor spacers in the league. Giannis would cover more 3s on defense, but the line up would have incredible spacing. Bucks also get a chance at a lottery pick as there’s a good chance the Pelicans miss the playoffs due to the depth of the West.

The Pelicans can’t get Randle, Mirotic, and Davis together in one line up. Now the Pelicans get a floor spacer and wing defender on the floor at the same time as Randle and Davis. If it works out the Pelicans can look at signing Middleton long term to keep Davis around.

09 Dec 2018 19:22:18
I believe the Bucks would pass. They just cleared space to resign Middleton to a Max contract next year. Plus they have floor spacers, Illyasova for one. Lopez, Etc.

09 Dec 2018 21:33:49
Good luck dealing with Bucks fans.

09 Dec 2018 21:43:41
Middleton is worth more than Mirotic, I think anyway. The first wouldn't persuade me much. Ilyasova fills the role well for less.

09 Dec 2018 23:50:55
@Torque Well if the blow up with the coaches was bad enough they may not max him or Middleton may look elsewhere. Plus Mirotic is a lot better Ily

@Btec I agree Middleton’s way better but I think you’re underestimating that Middleton needing an extension lessons his value and that first round pick could be really good due to how good the West is.

10 Dec 2018 00:20:11
That valuation is true if there is an imminent reason to trade him as with Butler and Leonard. I am not feeling that with a 4th quarter benching because his effort was lackluster. Middleton been one of he most improved defenders, and lights out shooters this season for the Bucks.

10 Dec 2018 00:47:52
Jalex, Middleton's blowup with the Coach's was just that. They sat and talked it out. Middleton even stated the coach was right to pull him for his effort. Other teams can offer Middleton 35 Mil. a year for 4 years max. Milwaukee can offer him 38 Mil. a year for 5 years max. Mirotic is not as good a defender as Middleton. I still believe the Bucks would pass.

10 Dec 2018 01:39:11
Just cause Bucks cleared cash doesn’t mean it’s for Middleton lol? Smart thing to do. Could be for anyone. Stop assuming that you know what real GMs are doing. Anyways, I’d rather have Middleton over Mirotic. They could do better.

10 Dec 2018 16:43:21
Look. I'm a Pels fan but there's no way you get Middleton for that.

09 Dec 2018 14:14:58

Fultz Fever! How long will it last!

06 Dec 2018 16:54:05
So the Pelicans should trade Davis in exchange for the core of last year's Lakers team which couldn't make the playoffs?

06 Dec 2018 17:52:59
Trade 3 starters and not get one first round draft pick? I'd say trade holiday to spurs for exploring contracts and toronto and spurs picks.

06 Dec 2018 18:50:14
None of those make sense to me. You can get way better package for AD and Drue. Also why would they trade a good starting F that can shoot for Fultz? Pels could do way better on all these.

06 Dec 2018 20:31:11
I like it all pelicans would have to do is sign a key free agent like the Lakers did with King James and could be special. The longer they keep Davis it's going to get harder and harder to get value because the team he getting traded to wants time to make him comfortable. Like la, Boston, philly or whoever.

Even if he declines a max extension that's going to be even worse. Remember I had pelicans and Timberwolves missing play offs with adding in LA and LA. Davis going to be very unhappy when that happens.

06 Dec 2018 21:19:14
How can you like that Holiday trade? Do you guys actually watch b-ball? He’s a beast!

07 Dec 2018 00:16:24
I don't think ball a beast but he has beast moments and been improving.

05 Dec 2018 23:59:58
Just curious why you think vuc would resign cheap after what looks like a career year?

05 Dec 2018 23:53:52
The Magic don't have the assets to get AD. Not even very close. I'd rather hold AD and dare him to walk away from his supermax over taking that deal.

06 Dec 2018 00:57:27
I’ve seen a lot of terrible AD trades on this site but this might be one of the worst.

06 Dec 2018 01:43:29
I don't think anyone will offer the ridiculous price the Pels are going to ask this season for AD. Nola is going to clean up no matter if its this season or next summer!

06 Dec 2018 15:37:27
You might want to pump the brakes on the AD is definitely gone for awhile. Its possible he stays and gets the SuperMax.

04 Dec 2018 22:48:44
Sixers Trade Joel Embiid 2020 first round pick (unprotected)

Pelicans Trade Anthony Davis

05 Dec 2018 01:53:18
Pelicans are in the drivers seat for any deal involving AD.

Joel, Ben, and anything else not nailed down plus another future 1st.

05 Dec 2018 02:04:10
Embiid has been just as good as Davis this year.

05 Dec 2018 05:23:23
Davis contract a lil more friendly and gives philly more cap to add in free agency with butler and davis plus Simmons.

05 Dec 2018 10:13:44
Seems more like a lateral move for Philly! They pass, I believe.

05 Dec 2018 13:53:04
For those who downvoted that Embiid isn’t playing better than Davis this year check the numbers. Embiid would win MVP if the season ended today

Its a fair trade in terms of value. I don't believe it will go down or has a possibility for consideration until CHA is out of the playoff picture or the off season has began.

Bucks don’t have Draft Pick?

03 Dec 2018 12:56:48
With wizards , New Orleans and magic stugglering they can work to getter make block buster trade , here is my idea

Magic would get
F Otto porter
C/f Jason smith

Pelican would get
Pf Aaron Gordon
C Ian Mahimi

You can’t be serious?

03 Dec 2018 22:31:02
Stugglering? Even if that was a thing, it does not justify a pretty lame trade idea. There is no way AD goes to Washington.

03 Dec 2018 22:42:29
Magic declined that.
