Suns get R.Jackson Kanter Biyombo 6th & 44th (Knicks)

Magic get Knight Leuer Galloway 1st 31st (Suns)

Stretch Leuer


23 Feb 2018 15:37:53
Absolutely terrible for the Knicks. Kanter is better than Chandler, and giving up Hardaway and a bunch of picks just to move Noah, while taking back garbage is a joke.

23 Feb 2018 16:43:32
@Triangle O they get the second overall pick buddy.

23 Feb 2018 17:58:57
Trading Noah's deal is unlikely. I like some of the moves to gain cap. Chandler for Kanter would be a victory, but PHX is smarter than that probably in a straight up move. Some good pieces in these deals.

23 Feb 2018 18:07:51
Not only do the Knicks trade their pick (currently sitting at 9 with little chance of moving down more than a spot or 2) for what looks to be a pick that will be 4 to 8 spots higher, but they also get out of 3 bad contracts and end up with what looks like a ton of cap room this year and even more next year. This trade is awful for everyone but the Knicks. The Suns basically take on 50 million in multi year bad contracts for 1 pick, the Piston's trade two useful players for 1 and one of the worst contracts in the league, and the Magic trade a top 5 pick in the draft for no reason at all.

23 Feb 2018 18:40:41
@Jorgawood Kanter is so much better than chandler. He is better than Kanter in all aspects of basketball except for defense.

23 Feb 2018 19:02:04
Tostito, Chandler is an expiring contract, he makes significantly less, he's probably still a better athlete than Kanter who is a statue, he's light years better on defense, he might be a better rebounder and if not they're about equal, and Chandler's offense fits better with what most offenses are currently trying to do. Kanter is a slow, offensive post player that is a bad defender inside and one of the worst defenders in the league on the perimeter. The majority of the league wants to run, finish at the rim, and shoot threes on offense and on defense they want bigs that aren't going to be liabilities if having to guard in space. He just doesn't fit well in today's league.

23 Feb 2018 20:42:15
Nice call rkenne. Pretty much what I think. Salary savings, defensive presence, same expiration. It's why PHX probably wouldn't do it. Noah and a buy-out are likely. Cash savings can be a real help. Better compliment next to Zinger. Their defense would have some teeth. Chandler can still dunk. All he needs to do offensively.

23 Feb 2018 21:36:13
If Kanter is as inanimate as a statue, wouldn't that make him a DeKanter?

23 Feb 2018 22:29:40
Tostitochip, way to fire back at everyone who doesn't like your deal.

As for your original comment back, I thought you were suggesting a second round pick, not 2nd overall.

23 Feb 2018 11:33:02
76ers trade Fultz, TLC, Korkmaz, Bayless, Lakers 1st round pick 2018, Kings' 1st round pick 2019, Rockets' 2nd round pick 2018
Spurs trade Kawhi

- resign: Redick, Belinelli, A.Johnson, Booker
- still own 3 x 2nd round pick 2018 (probably Nets', Knicks' and own)
- Covington 6th man at wing (SF/SG)

- let Parker, Lauvergne, Forbes walk
- waive/trade Bayless
- Manu retires due to rebuild, so Gay and Green will not pick up their player's option
- resign Anderson, Bertans
- Spurs and coach Pop like european talents like TLC and Korkmaz
+ main reason: Fultz and Lakers' (2018) and Kings' pick (2019)

23 Feb 2018 12:13:16
The picks are nice, I'm just not sure that the Spurs want to take a rookie who has both missed the season, as well as had his shot mechanics called into question as the centrepiece of this deal.

23 Feb 2018 13:51:27
Sixers can't trade both of those picks, because one of them will be going to Boston.

23 Feb 2018 14:17:10
The Sixers can't move both the Lakers and Kings picks since one will be moved to the Celtics unless the Kings pick lands at #1. That makes this one iffy to me. The potential of Fultz and Korkmaz would make this intriguing to me as the Spurs, especially if there's issues between them and Leonard. But I think they'd need to get at least one additional first.

23 Feb 2018 14:17:42
If Fultz is having the problem he is having (a psychological one) it will cost a pick in itself to unload him. Not one player in this can make SA better why would SA do this. It's absurd to think this is a good offer for Kawhi. PHI is thinking Hinkie is looking pretty good now. Didn't draft a complete bust, and trade a pick to do it.

23 Feb 2018 16:10:11
Jorga, Fultz value is probably plummetting, but he still has value. There probably isn't a team in the league that wouldn't give up a mid to late 1st for him.

23 Feb 2018 16:15:28
I rather have Ingram if I was the spurs.

23 Feb 2018 18:23:06
Rkenne your entitled to your opinion. I saw what I saw in the background of the Bret Brown interview. Until that is gone, I'm a seller, and wouldn't give up anything for him as a buyer. It's a clear Hitch, and it didn't appear he was making any baskets.

23 Feb 2018 05:53:01
Why is POR giving up any picks? Come on man this is fantasy at best. You can post different versions over, and over, and Miami will pull off anything close to this.

23 Feb 2018 15:10:17
Wait. San Antonio and Portland are giving up picks, and Miami gets the two stars involved in the trade? That's a bit nuts. The second trade makes some sense, but I still think Whiteside is insanely overrated, so I don't think I would do this myself as the Raptors, but I could see it being worthwhile for others.

22 Feb 2018 14:44:22

22 Feb 2018 08:06:59
Tyler Johnson poison pill contract comes on next season, you probably need a 1st or young assett to move him.

And it is a terrible return for Spurs.

22 Feb 2018 19:57:11
Miami gets a Hell of a squad, and the Spurs get middle of the road players nearing the end of the they-still-might-improve-realm. Not very balanced trade. NBA is quid pro quo. UTA got Crowder who's under contract long-term, dumped Johnson without eating 5 mil by waiving, and gave Hood away basically because he wasn't going to sign obviously. It's not a great trade, but UTA achieved roster/ salary stability, SAC saved money long term on Hill, CLE may make a title run this season. Spurs are just eating sh*t here for Kawhi.

21 Feb 2018 20:46:56
Blockbuster Offseason trade

Miami : Lillard, Kawhi, Aminu

San Antonio : Whiteside, Winslow,
Portland 1st & 2nd round picks

Portland : Dragic, Olynyk, Forbes, White,

HEAT lineup :

PG : Lillard/TJ
SG : Waiters/Wade/Ellington
C : Bam/ Haslem
PF : Johnson/Mickey/Babbitt
SF : Leonard/Richardson/McGruder

21 Feb 2018 22:08:29
Portland pays a first to downgrade from Lillard to Dragic?

22 Feb 2018 01:31:35
This is horrible.

22 Feb 2018 16:23:18
I love that comparing it to the trade offered right below. This guy thinks to swap out Winslow for 2 bench players the blazers must give up a 1st and a 2nd?

The heat have nowhere near the talent to bring in both these players let alone possibly just 1.

Dragic is on the decline and at his best was above average. Barely.

Whiteside just isn’t the game changer that he should be.

It’s that simple.

21 Feb 2018 20:31:25
Heat : dame lillard and aminu
Portland : dragic, olynyk, winslow

21 Feb 2018 22:10:13
Include Bam and Portland at least hesitated before saying no.

19 Feb 2018 00:43:46

LAL get Kristaps Porzingis, Joakim Noah & Emmanuel Mudiay

NYK get Lonzo Ball, Luol Deng, Julius Randle & Ivica Zubac

19 Feb 2018 01:50:19
It's probably fair, but NY would probably say no. Even with a 1st thrown in.

19 Feb 2018 01:51:42
Knicks fans would riot and the New York media would have Ball's head on a pike by his 2nd bricked 3.

19 Feb 2018 17:32:45
I like Porzingis going to LA, but no way NY does this.

15 Feb 2018 05:12:05
Doc rivers takes over

Clippers get Mudiay Ntilikina Baker
Knicks get Beverly Rivers Evans

Splash trade by Doc
Detroit get Hardaway Noah Burke
Magic get Kanter R.Jackson 5th
Knicks get Anderson Biyombo Ross Galloway 1st 37th
Rockets get Leuer


15 Feb 2018 17:24:14
Doc has shown time and time again that he is not a great GM let alone a good GM. I don't think there will ever be a time that he has GM powers again.

14 Feb 2018 12:54:14
Knicks press reset botton.Hire Jay Wright to coach.2 trades

Pistons get Hardaway Thomas Burke 20th
Suns get R.Jackson Kanter Telly
Bucks get Leuer Knight
Knicks get Chandler Teletovic Dudley 13th

Later trade
Pelicans get Mudiay Dudley-exp Teletovic-exp Chandler-exp Ntilikina
Knicks get Holiday Moore Solomon

Draft Michigan State players


14 Feb 2018 16:58:30
Knicks rebuild will have to go on without Pels making that trade. No way they accept.

14 Feb 2018 17:45:20
Taking on Solomon and Moore contract who are bench players at best for expiring contracts and 2 guards under 22yrs old. Holiday with Cousin and Davis was barely .500 team. dacman813 You are overvaluing Holiday.

14 Feb 2018 18:28:14
Dacman, that 2nd trade would be a steal for the Pelicans. They would end up with cap space to build around Davis (and possibly Cousins) plus a fairly promising young pg.

14 Feb 2018 19:38:41
Plan B is even better
Hawks get Ntilikina Mudiay Dudley Teletovic Baker
Knicks get Schroder Bazmore Plumlee

Hawks dump future salary with 2 with PG players 22 yrs
stretch Noah buyout
Knicks sign Smart 4 70 mil

Schroder/ Roach-36th/ Brunson-46th
Smart/ Lee/ Milton
Bazemore/ Mykal-13th/
Porzingis/ Jackson-6th/ Hicks
Plumlee/ Chandler/ Bitadze-42nd

Knicks turn toward defense with better contracts. After drafting poorly last summer.

15 Feb 2018 00:55:34
I doubt the Bucks would want Leuer and Knight back, Since they had already traded them both away before! Did you mean "Dellevedova" (Delly) instead of "Telly? " Otherwise you have traded him "Telly" twice to 2 different teams?

15 Feb 2018 15:26:30
Not overvaluing anybody. It is a horrible idea for the Pels to take on a bunch of expiring contracts and let the window shut down on AD's contract. They basically have 3 yeqrs to put a strong contender together. Moore is playing decent and Holiday is playing well. I am not big on Mudlay either for that matter, or any of the expiring.

14 Feb 2018 01:35:42
Knicks Offseason Plan:

1. Fire Jeff Hornacek

2. Hire John Calipari after he had a tough season at UK or just a younger coach to benefit their youth movement

3. Promote front office position such as Scott Perry to president and fire Steve Mills

4. Knicks/Warriors Trade

a. Warriors Receive: Kyle O-Quinn

b. Knicks Receive: GS 2018 first round pick, Patrick McCaw

5.Select Miles Bridges with their first round pick (projected 8-11) and select Austin Wiley with the Warriors first round pick (projected 30)

6. Lett Jarret Jack walk in free agency

7. Resign Michael Beasley to a 1 year 10 million dollar contract, resign Enes Kanter on a 4 year 80 million dollar Contract, sign Mario Hezonja to a 1 year 3 million dollar deal, sign Lucas Nogueira to a veterans minimum for some rim protection

8. Trade Joakim Noah, a 2022 top 10 protected first round pick, 1 future second round pick to the Chicago Bulls for cash considerations.

9. Send Isaiah Hicks back to the G-League and send draftee Austin Wiley to the G-League for a season+fully guarantee Luke Kornet to the MLE for 1 year.

2018-2019 Lineup

1. Frank Ntlikina-3 M
2. Tim Hardaway Jr. -17 M
3. Miles Bridges-7M
4. Kristaps Porzingis (once he returns)-4 M
5.Enes Kanter-20 M
6: Michael Beasley-10 M
7. Courtney Lee-13 M
8. Emmanuel Mudiay-3 M
9. Lance Thomas-7 M
10.Lucas Nogueira-3 M
11.Dameyan Dotson-800K
12.Trey Burke-780K
13. Luke Kornet-1 M
RES. Ron Baker (reserve until he recovers)-4 M
RES. Isaiah Hicks(reserve/G-League)

Player Pay Roll=(Roughly) 93 Million Dollars compared to last year's (Roughly) 103 Million Dollars.

14 Feb 2018 06:23:39
Trade Lee for Asik if CHI is open to it, (Asik expires next season) maybe A. Jefferson? Discourage Kanter from signing if possible, (terrible on defense without Porzingis) Trade if possible for value. Take on Biyombo, or Dieng, and a good player or pick. I like the valuation on Beasley. No more than 2 years for Beez though. Bridges, Lee, Thomas way too similar to M. Leonard, Harkless, Turner. Avoid that. Burke will have interest from other teams if Knicks don't pay a little more. No on Nogueira. Pray Ntilikina shows something soon, and isn't another Caboclo. I'd trade him for value now that Mudiay is there. Burke is better too. BOS, and PHI are showing everyone the example of how to build. CHI, LAC are doing good too. No Mills, no Hornacek. Hire Udoka from S. A. Or Stackhouse from G-league. See if Steve Nash wants to coach? One of the hardest workers, and fundamentals guy to ever play. His style was the new NBA. Get a coach to grow with the players. Calipari too high profile paid too much too. Porzingis is the star, not the coach. 2019 is a good free agent summer. Be prepared with cap. Round out the roster with scrappy hard working non-guaranteed deals. Hardaway, Beez, Porzingis, Mudiay, this years pick are the foundation.

14 Feb 2018 07:34:54
Anyone know if Knicks could pay Noah 30 million next season, and 6 the following in a buy-out? With Zinger out, and next season likely a rebuilding year take the brunt of the contract all at one time?

14 Feb 2018 11:03:39
Trust the calamity (New York )

14 Feb 2018 13:07:53
No one should hire Calipari. The guy is a great recruiter, but only a mediocre coach. They should just eat Noah's contract. I don't see Kanter opting out of his contract this year and if he did, he isn't getting 20 million. There aren't a ton of teams with big cap space. I think that's an over pay for Beasley as well.

14 Feb 2018 16:36:24
I never understand all this love for Calipari. He gets the top guys year in and year out but has only done something with the top talent once. Like you said great recruiter but VERY mediocre coach.

14 Feb 2018 17:35:11
Thats why he will be good for a big market team. To attract free agents. come on now Larry use your head.

15 Feb 2018 01:15:03
Jay Wright.

15 Feb 2018 17:16:53
Tostitochip17, I don't think New York has really ever failed to attract free agents. The city speaks for its self. They have done that time and time again, just look back to 2010 when they had Melo and Amare. The problem has always been that they don't have a capable coach to surround these guys. Just having the best guys on one roster doesn't mean anything if the coach can't coach. And I think that's exact the case for Callipari.

12 Feb 2018 20:45:38
Knicks Offseason

Draft - (9th) SF Mikal Bridges
(38) SF Chandler Hutchinson

12 Feb 2018 22:25:28
I don't think Pels would want Thomas again.

13 Feb 2018 03:47:39
I don't like giving Beasley the 2nd Year option, unless it were the team's instead of his. Warriors are also not in a position to take on $6M a year.

13 Feb 2018 11:54:44
Back to back tanking, thank god your not the gm. Please no more former players as coaches. We need a head coach, who can teach defense to my identity back. No more international players who can't play defense and aren't athletic. Jay Wright Knicks next coach

I’ve made this mistake.

Denver gets- George Hill

Sacremento gets- Alex Abrines, Kyle Singler, 2nd rd pick (OKC)

New York gets- Emmanuel Mudiay, Kenneth Faried

Oklahoma City gets- Courtney Lee

What do you think?

07 Feb 2018 20:53:30
New York is basicly trading a 32 year old wing for an amazing point gaurd and a pretty solid big man.

07 Feb 2018 23:05:49
On what world is Mudiay an "amazing point guard"?

08 Feb 2018 02:57:28
Amazing? Get off 2k and watch a game. Denver has been trying to unload mudiay, because he's been a bum.

07 Feb 2018 16:48:48
Knicks - Spurs
