Grizzlies receive:
G DeMar DeRozan

Knicks receive:
4th pick in draft (Mo Bamba)
F Chandler Parsons

Raptors receive:
9th pick in draft (SGA)
36th pick in draft
F Lance Thomas (expiring)
G Courtney Lee

21 Jun 2018 17:23:50
Seems like the Raptors would just cut the Knicks out and take #4 and Parsons.

21 Jun 2018 13:13:32
Knicks/ Grizz

To NYK - Pick 4, Conley, Brooks

To MEM - Zinger, Hardaway, Muniday

Memphis doesn’t move Parsons with this deal, but gets a young stud in Zinger, a quality Wing in Hardaway and an expiring deal in Muniday.

I know i’m going to get lambasted for this one, but I’m ready to move on from Zinger. Yes he’s a super talent, but I’m not convinced that he stays healthy for his whole career, and I’m not sure he wants to be a Knick long term. In moving Zinger, the Knicks effectively get Mamba, who is a big target of theirs, a Star in Conley, and a solid young wing with growth potential.

Let the roasting begin!

21 Jun 2018 15:06:22
Weren't you the same fool who had all the Zinger trades last year? Read the articles-Knicks want Mamba to pair with Zinger! Please stop posting stupid trade scenarios. Knicks are not trading Zinger!

21 Jun 2018 16:03:25
Mitchsam, if the Knicks are interested in moving up to 4, what other package can they build that would interest Memphis? They don't have the expiring contracts to get the Grizzlies out of Parsons and possibly Conley's contracts. That leaves Ntilikina and the 9th pick as the only significant assets they really have to offer. I don't see something built around that netting you the 4th pick in the draft. Would NY be willing to throw in next year's pick? With KP out for the bulk of next year that could easily be a top 5 pick. the Grizzlies think they can compete now. Would they see the 2020 pick as anything more than a sweetener? It's not impossible that they could get something done without KP, but I'm not sure they really have the assets that check all of the Grizzlies boxes and without that I think it would take a deal that overwhelms the Grizzlies on value. If that's the case I'm not sure how the Knicks can find a deal that makes sense for them give where they're at right now.

21 Jun 2018 17:13:25
If Memphis is serious about getting back to the post season, this doesn't make a lot of sense. Porzingis could be out for more than half the season. It's probably a fair offer for porzingis considering how disappointing hardaway and mudiay have been.

21 Jun 2018 00:10:11
Lakers get Leonard Baker Burke 59
Spurs get Ingram Kuzma Kanter
Knicks get Knight Chandler Dudley
Suns get Ball Deng Noah

Suns have nice 5 starting at the cost of taking 2 bad contract


Lakers can assemble super team.


Spurs get get great value for Leonard.


Knicks move Noah without trading a pick and save 4 mil
Lee thomas for Faried Arthur
Knight for Mack Ross


21 Jun 2018 05:02:04
Suns are eating it in this.

20 Jun 2018 21:47:23
Knicks - Chandler (exp) and 31st pick
Suns gets - Noah and 9th pick

Knicks - Matthews (exp) and 33rd pick
Mavs - Ntikilina and THJ

Knicks draft Kieta Bates-Diop and Josh Okogie

2019 sign Kyrie Irving and Draymond Green
Resign Matthews


20 Jun 2018 17:27:28
Hornets trade pick 11,Jeremy lamb

To Knicks for pick 9

20 Jun 2018 17:48:18
It's a good trade. Knicks could use lamb and hornets could benefit from moving up and the extra cap to re-sign t. graham and a back up point. I'm not sure if lamb is enough to get 2 lottery spots up but he's a good player.

20 Jun 2018 03:16:49
Knicks: chandler parsons and #4 pick

Grizzlies:hardaway,o quinn and#36 pick

Knicks draft luca doncic and mikal bridges

20 Jun 2018 04:31:21
Hardaway isn't doing it, and O'quinn would make it a s&t so hardaway couldn't be included.

20 Jun 2018 04:50:21
I think Memphis gets hosed here, I would need at least one of Ntilikina, no. 9, or a future 1st in addition to what Memphis is already getting.

20 Jun 2018 13:51:39
I know they want to get rid of Parsons, but the Grizzlies are getting something back if they are also giving up #4. This is getting next to nothing.

19 Jun 2018 15:44:58
Kings - Knicks - Wizards

Kings gets:
9th pick (Knicks)
15th pick (Wizards)
37th pick (Bulls via Knicks)

Knicks gets:
2nd pick (Kings)

Wizards gets:

19 Jun 2018 17:48:13
Not getting the #2 overall pick for #9, a second rounder, and two overpaid role players. Sorry knicks.

19 Jun 2018 17:59:54
Jvoug1, Wizards or Kings says no?

19 Jun 2018 18:23:25
Kings say No.

19 Jun 2018 19:20:41
I think the Kings and Wizards both say no.

18 Jun 2018 21:32:11
Knicks - Raptors - Spurs

Knicks gets:

Raptors gets:
9th pick (Gilgeous-Alexander)
2019 2nd rd pick (Knicks)
2020 2nd rd pick (Hornets)

Spurs gets:
2020 1st rd pick (Knicks, Top 5 protected)

Knicks gets a star to pair with Porzingis and Ntilikina. Scary defensive team and with Fizdales toughness they can compete in the east.

Rumors say that Raptors want Gilgeous-Alexander bad. By getting the 9th pick they can pick him and save some money as well.

Spurs move Leonard to the East and can continue to compete with Derozan. They also get a cheap PG in Mudiay and a future pick.


18 Jun 2018 22:23:08
If you get Leonard, you make cap space to get Lebron and George also. Forget Ntilikina and Porzingis.

18 Jun 2018 22:31:19
Cap space and realistic chances of landing a free agent aren't the same shizzee.

18 Jun 2018 16:16:30
Convince O'Quinn and Kanter that they are not part of future so they both opts out, allow NY to assemble a super team.

1st trade Porzingis Ntilikina Baker for Leonard

Leonard will attract Lebron and George.

Knicks have to trade Hardaway Noah 9th and 2020 1st for Powell 54th


18 Jun 2018 16:46:14
Yep, if the Knicks can somehow dump all of their salary, trade for Kawhi and then convince 2 guys that aren't even looking at them, they won't be bad this year. We get it. It's not going to happen. If it's going to happen, it's going to happen in LA.

18 Jun 2018 17:02:23
How do you " convince" Kanter to pass up $17.9 million dollars for one year, then he can go wherever he wants after that. He may not be part of their future, but he is 17.9 million parts of their present. Please get really in your suggestions.

18 Jun 2018 17:57:33
My mistake. Kanter is due $18.6 million for his player option next year, not 17.9 million.

18 Jun 2018 01:36:12

NYK get Lonzo Ball, Luol Deng, 25th pick (LAL) & Patty Mills

SAS get Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, 9th pick (NYK) & Tim Hardaway Jr

LAL get Kawhi Leonard & Lance Thomas

17 Jun 2018 22:04:16
Game plan 2 knicks keep their youth

Spurs get Hardaway Kuzma Ingram
Lakers get Leonard Burke Baker
Knicks get Ball Deng

CP3 george lebron 2yr 50 mil, than resign Randle, Melo-mle




17 Jun 2018 15:36:38
Multiple Kawhi deals:

Just having fun with a couple of deals, let me know which ones, if any, you like.

#1 - To GSW

Kawhi for Klay and Jordan Bell

Kawhi moves to the two, Warriors and Spurs would have to sign either after next season, Spurs get young C, and if healthy, Claw makes Warriors unstoppable.

#2 - To MIA

Kawhi for JJ, Bam and Justise

Miami loves star players, and they get one in Claw. Spurs take on two years of overpaid but solid James Johnson to get two potential building blocks in Winslow and Bam.

#3 - To POR

Kawhi for Harkless, Aminu, Collins, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Admittedly the worst player package, Spurs get only two solid rotation players and a young C with potential, but this is about picks and depth. Blazers tried their best to add a third star last year, but were unsuccessful. This year they get their guy.

4# - To LAC

Kawhi, Mills for Harris, Beverley, Johnson, pick 12

This is a popular rumour, and is one I like. Harris and Beverley are above average players who offer D and versatility. Johnson adds another shooter, and pick 12 brings a good rotation piece. Kawhi goes home, and Mills offers shooting at the 1. Yes, Clips dealt two stars last year, but I don’t believe it was for a rebuild, so adding a superstar while still keeping a lottery pick in this year’s draft is a win.

#5 - To BOS

Kawhi, Mills for Hayward, Brown

Both Claw and Gordon are coming off major injuries, so both teams are taking a risk. When healthy though, Kawhi is the better player, and Brown is needed to get this deal done. Mills salary matches, but also helps soften the blow should Smart not resign, or if Rozier is needed in a separate deal.

#6 - To NYK

Kawhi for Lee, Frank, Dotson, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Again, not a great player package, but Lee feels like a Spur, Frank and Dejonte are a defensive nightmare and two picks, including 9 brings quality youth. Sounds like Kawhi and his camp have at least a fleeting interest in playing in NY, and him with Zinger would be the foundation for the Knicks turnaround.

#7 - To UTA

Kawhi for Ingles, Thabo, O’Neal and 2018 1st

Claw with Mitchell, and Steiffel would be a scary threesome, though Jazz hesitate as this is the spot Claw is least likely to resign. Spurs get a really solid, underrated player on a good deal in Ingles, an expiring deal in Thabo and two young pieces.

#8 - To LAL

Kawhi for Ingram, Kuzma

Spurs don’t get pick 25, but also don’t take back Deng. Lakers give up two good building blocks, and keep 25 to try to tie to Deng for another trade.

#9 - To PHI

Kawhi for Saric, Covington and pick 10

Philly gets their star if LBJ doesn’t land there. Spurs get an underrated 3 and D guy, and two young quality pieces.

#10 - To CHI

Kawhi, pick 17 for Valentine, Portis, picks 7 and 22

Chicago speeds up the rebuild, adding Kawhi to Lauri and Kris while keeping a first in this year’s draft. Spurs get youth and two picks.

17 Jun 2018 15:54:11
Outside of the Celtics offer here, most of these seem pretty short.

19 Jun 2018 03:27:19
I think the most likely of these in order are LAC, LAL, CHI. You could add PHI to that if you switched Saric with Fultz.

17 Jun 2018 14:55:50
Knicks have a chance to assemble a super team 2-3 yr window or to have Porzingis Ntilikina for 10 yrs.

I say screw Porzingis, their no guarentee on a 7'3" health long term.

Sixers get Hardaway
Dal get get Kanter Bayless Korkmaz
Hawks get Noah Cabarrott 9th
Knicks get Anderson 59th 60th

Spurs get Ntilikina Porzingis Baker
Knicks get Leonard

Sign Lebron and P.George. 3yr 90mil
O'Quinn opt in with extension and Dedmon mle


17 Jun 2018 15:52:12
Never going to happen.

17 Jun 2018 18:43:36
Knicks will have better record then cavs next yr guarenteed. Loser leave board 2 months.

17 Jun 2018 18:48:50
What is Dallas getting to absorb all that overpaid garbage?

17 Jun 2018 18:53:39
If knicks clear for cap space hardaway Noah Kanter. Trade frank Porzingis Baker for payroll will be 45 mil. How do you say it can never happen its possible. Oh bc I forgot Anderson. Ok I get it. lmao

Mudiay/ Burke/ Carr-59
Leonard/ Lee/ Dotson
George/ Diop/ Anderson
Lebron/ Thomas/ Kornet
O'Quinn/ Dedmon/ Blitadze-60.

17 Jun 2018 19:51:51
It's impossible because Lebron and George want no part of playing for Dolan and they can't trust the front office. That's not even to mention the way that the Knicks treated Melo or the fact that Porzingas has been upset with the franchise since he came to NY. You don't think players see that?

16 Jun 2018 20:06:49
Kemba Walker trades

Cavs get - Walker and Howard
Hornets get - 8th pick Clarkson Osman Thompson and Nance Jr

Clarkson/Monk/Mik Bridges/Williams/Frank

Howard/ Carter-8th/ Porzingis.

16 Jun 2018 21:07:38
Hahah Shizzee come on man. I'm not sure who turns that down first, the Hornets or the Thunder. Why would either team want to take those contracts. Melo and Howard are expiring, why trade them for players signed multiple years that don't help you?

16 Jun 2018 18:15:26
The Cavs get Noah, the 36th pick and the Knicks 2019 1st top 8 protected

The Knicks get Hill (buyout)

16 Jun 2018 18:43:30
Cavs take if Lebron goes and pick is top 3.

16 Jun 2018 19:32:18
Noah for thompson str8 up.

16 Jun 2018 16:53:05
For all you cavs fans who ruin this board

Knicks get Love JrSmith Hill 8th
Cavs get Noah Lee Hardaway Thomas

Noah will be your next franchise players.

16 Jun 2018 17:08:42
Shizzee, you post the same Knicks trades over and over again. Every trade you post is a 4 way trade that some how dumps every garbage Knicks contract, while giving up almost nothing of value and then you add in the end that they sign 2 elite free agents.

16 Jun 2018 17:11:46
Great deal 😡.

16 Jun 2018 18:50:07
I'm sorry but i gave it a thumbs up just based on the first sentence. The Cav trade rumors tend to be the most lopsided.

16 Jun 2018 04:23:42

BOS gets Chandler, Josh Jackson, Porzignis and 1st pick via PHX
Sign Bron to MAX

PHX gets Kyrie

Knicks get Jalen Brown, Markief Morris, and . Rozier,26th pick via BOS

Rozier/ Muiday/ Frank
Brown/ Lee

Kanter/ O'Quinn

Kyrie/ Ulis
Chriss/ Bender
Capela/ Len

Lebron/ Larkin
Hayward/ Smart
Tatum/ Josh Jackson
Porzingis/ Baggley (#1 via PHX)
Horford/ Chandler.

16 Jun 2018 04:55:57
That's to much for Irving.

16 Jun 2018 04:58:18
no way, if knicks are involved they want kyrie, not that they should trade porzingis for him anyways. but if they want this they can just make the deal with only boston.

16 Jun 2018 11:39:46
Bad trade for Boston. And just say no to LBJ!

16 Jun 2018 01:58:29

Wizards get - Kawhi


16 Jun 2018 05:06:27
i think the philly deal is most likely, bucks is intriguing though. and wiz shouldn't do that.

19 Jun 2018 15:53:16
Danny Green is past it and has little value. If he’s filler that’s one thing but he’s not a difference maker in these scenarios.

15 Jun 2018 22:16:51
Knicks - Spurs

Knicks gets:

Spurs gets:
9th pick
2020 1st rd pick (Top 5 protected)
2022 1st rd pick (Lottery protected)

16 Jun 2018 01:26:17
Porzingis is going to be in that deal with an offload of lee. Knicks said they don't want to trade the future either. Don't see much left in ny after a leonard deal to be competitive.

14 Jun 2018 22:08:41
I want to take a look at the 76er's current situation and how to get past the Celtics to the finals.

Magic Receive Jarryd Bayless and #26 OVR 2018 draft pick.

76ers receive #41 OVR 2018 draft pick.

Thinking: Sixers are able to unload 8.576 million from their salary cap situation to be able to accommodate a max contract. Meanwhile the Magic are able to add a shooter that is still only 29. He's expensive for this year, but only has one year on his contract. He's better than Fournier and only half the price. In return for the extra salary, they're moving up 15 spots in the draft.

Cavaliers Receive Picks 10, 38, and 41
76ers Receive Pick 8

Thinking: Cavaliers begin to realize Dan Gilbert doesn't have the best relations with LBJ. It seems like a low ball offer, but mind yourself that the Cavs and Sixers are looking for two separate Archetypes. The Cavs should not worry about the Sixers or Knicks taking their big man they have their eyes on (with Porzingis and Embiid). In return for dropping two spots, they're put back into round 2 with options for cheap role players. **If this trade can't be completed than that's ok. I was trying to get the Sixers into the top 7 for Doncic, MPJ, Bamba, or Trae Young.**

Free Agency: ~39.5 million
Picking Up Team Options on McConnell and Holmes (1.6 mil each)

Plan A: Lebron James: I'd throw money at LBJ in hopes he'd teach the team how to win and perform in crunch time. The shortcoming of the Sixers was having a player they could turn to in the last 5 minutes in the game to take over. The weakest part of the team was the final quarter and this would work to solve it.

Plan B: Avery Bradley and Aaron Gordon: With around 36 million dollars to play with, I'd first throw money towards Avery Bradley. I think he's a much better fit. I'd be perfectly fine throwing 18-22 million towards Avery. He is the elite perimeter defender that they can use to put on the opposing guards on the Celtics, Warriors, and Rockets. He's a HUGE upgrade over JJ Reddick for this reason. Notice the athletic/strong guards dictated the playoff series with Boston. My other move would be trying to pry away Aaron Gordon or Julius Randle (if you can't pry them away, at least make the Lakers and Magic pay a pretty penny). That's the other element I think the Sixers are missing. Aaron Gordon can slide right in with Dario as backup power forward. I'd be willing to throw the remaining money at him. If I can't come up with the cap space to sign Aaron, I'd flirt the market for the package of Covington and the #8 pick (looking to move into 3-6 range).

Possible Starting Line Up:
PG: Markelle Fultz
SG: Avery Bradley
SF: Ben Simmons/Robert Covington
PF: Ben Simmons/Dario Saric
C: Joel Embiid

6th Man: Aaron Gordon
7th Man: TJ McConnell

My final analysis is that this team would have the shooting in Markelle and Avery to offset the inside game of Embiid and Simmons. The defense would be versatile with Bradley, Covington, Simmons, and Embiid. The height and athleticism on the inside wouldn't be changing much, so rebounding is still near the top of the NBA (Aaron Gordon doesn't hurt either).

Let me know what you guys think (if you like it I might try to fix another team)!

15 Jun 2018 00:50:12
Okay a few things
1. Aaron Gordon would start
2. Avery Bradley is nowhere near worth 18-22 million a year! If it’s a 1yr 15m deal then that would be okay. But if it’s a multi-year deal, it should be about 3yr 30m.

15 Jun 2018 00:56:50
You max off gordon to bench him? Lol.

15 Jun 2018 03:34:06
My philosophy is to have him lead the second team. You can experiment with putting him in the first lineup, but medically I didn't want to push him. Let him get comfortable (and use that Philly medical system) to ensure he's healthy long term.

Also, talking contracts, I would be looking to front load them. Avery Bradley in my eyes is worth every penny of 18 million. See if he'd bite for a contract where we take half his total salary this year and spread the rest over the next two years for flexibility when resigning Simmons and Fultz.
