OKC is in full win now mode 2 trades to hopefully put them there all salaries work. Let me know what yall think.

Trade 1
OKC get Hayward #20 or #22 pick not both
BOS get Adams Patterson (expiring)

OKC takes Haywards contract which is worse than Adams contract. Their contracts last the same amount of time but Hayward gets bout 7 mil more a year and is coming off the bench That is why OKC gets the pick. OKC needs scoring mainly 3 point scoring they take a bet on Hayward returning to his old self and hope it works though not likely. Also pairing him with George could help him return to his old self because George could help him since he had to go threw the same thing before.

BOS gets out of the Hayward contract save 7 mil after this upcoming season and open up more time for their young wings. They get Adams to play C sign Horford to a team friendly deal which Horford has said he would then put him at PF. This will help them with defense and rebounding. They get Patterson who is expiring to make salaries work.

Trade 2
OKC- Griffin
DET- Schroder, Roberson, Grant, 1st round pick #21, #20 or 22 (BOS trade), OKC future 1st.

OKC get Griffin a player that has been rumored to them before he is from Oklahoma. He has developed a better 3 point shot over the years and this would give OKC that 3rd scoring option they desperately need.
DET mainly does it for the 3 1st round picks and get out of Griffins max contract. They get Roberson expiring. They put Schroder or Jackson at back up PG so they would have a solid back up PG. And the best player they recieve is Grant. He is young athletic he can defend multiple positions he added a 3-point shot last year shot 39.2% from 3 and has improved his game every year. He is also on a good contract.

OKC sign a C to start useing their MLE, i'm assuming Noel declines his PO to chase more money, but maybe if they offer a starting position he would accept his PO idk. Then fill out the rest of the roster with min contracts, and hope they can get decent depth with min contracts.

New starting 5
Westbrook
Hayward
George
Griffin
Noel if accepts PO, or whoever they sign

Now clearly a huge question would be chemistry, but if they can form good chemistry and get lucky and Hayward can improve closer to his old self then Westbrook Hayward George Griffin could make a great dangerous starting lineup they would have size advantage the shortest player on the court would b Russ then everyone else is at least 6'8. Even though they play big they could still keep up with the other teams smaller players so they get the size advantage.

What are yall's opinions? Does this make them a Contender?

18 Jun 2019 18:46:05
If russ gets less than 15 shots a game and they add a shooter they could contend. He won't change his game so stop dreaming.

18 Jun 2019 18:57:52
Interested to see what their bench would look like after this.

18 Jun 2019 14:01:46
Jazz get Conley, Bradley

Thunder get Favors, Crowder, Korver, Exum

Grizzlies get Adams, Schröder, Roberson

Jazz get their guy without giving up a first round pick. Thunder cut salary, add shooting, and upgrade bench. Grizzlies get a big better than Jonas who can spare JJJ all the dirty work, a 6th man/vet backup for Morant, and the second coming of Tony Allen.

18 Jun 2019 18:47:36
Did you use lube while screwing the grizz?

18 Jun 2019 01:51:09
Let's make a 2019 version of the Bad Boys Pistons, yea?

Detroit gets Chris Paul, 2nd rounder
Houston gets Reggie Jackson, John Leuer, Langston Galloway

Detroit gets Steven Adams, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala
OKC gets Blake Griffin, Houston 2nd, GSW 2nd
GSW gets Andre Drummond, Andre Roberson, OKC first

Okc gets a 3rd star.

Golden State seem committed to Klay and KD. Idk how they also pay Draymond. Gives them someone to replace Boogie. And this is the one place I can think of for Roberson that could (1) be their best wing defender and (2) could hid his bad shooting with great shooting.

Detroit adds JR Smith when he inevitably bought out. Signs Patrick Beverly. Drafts Rui Hachimura. Resigns Pachulia.

Paul, Beverly
Kennard, Smith
Iguodala, Robinson
Green, Hachimura
Adams, Maker, Pachulia

Maybe not the best team, but it's fun to make the Pistons the bad boys again. Who'd make your version of today's Pistons Bad Boys?

18 Jun 2019 02:48:17
They better be a top defensive team bc they’ll be one of the worst offensive team by far.

18 Jun 2019 04:18:11
If I had to make a bad boys team with everyone in the league

Westbrook
Butler
Wiggins
Green
Embiid.

18 Jun 2019 04:55:33
Wiggins?!? One of the softest guys in the L.

18 Jun 2019 06:48:49
I primarily picked the most hated at each position.

17 Jun 2019 22:42:09
Spurs get: Jackson Warren
Suns get: Schroeder, Ferguson, Bertans, pick 21, pick 29.
OKC get: Mills, pick 6.

18 Jun 2019 00:20:02
Okc fan? Lol.

18 Jun 2019 01:31:13
Spurs pass.

18 Jun 2019 02:14:37
Sun's also pass.

17 Jun 2019 19:17:44
OKC-NOLA

OKC-Ball,4th pick

NOLA-Schroder,21st pick.

17 Jun 2019 19:52:25
Lol lol lol. Schroder ain't worth the pick. Lol lol.

17 Jun 2019 20:34:12
Remove the #4 pick and maybe. I think NO still doesn't do it though.

17 Jun 2019 21:20:54
I’d rather have ball straight up and I don’t even really like him. You’re delusional.

17 Jun 2019 19:16:32
OKC-NOLA

NOLA-Roberson,21st pick

OKC-Moore.

17 Jun 2019 19:33:56
This makes sense if the trade is done before the end of the current salary cap year to save OKC luxury tax this year as well as next year's luxury tax.

17 Jun 2019 21:21:31
The Pelicans need more shooting. I’d pass.

16 Jun 2019 19:29:39
Spurs get Conley, Bradley, Anderson

Thunder get Aldridge, Belinelli

Grizzlies get Adams, Mills, Roberson, Forbes

16 Jun 2019 19:40:08
The Spurs have guards. Adding Conley doesn’t really do much for themz.

16 Jun 2019 20:19:56
Grizzwant young guys or picks. Forbes isn't enough.

16 Jun 2019 21:12:59
OKC fans keep on trying.

16 Jun 2019 15:43:39
Celtics loose Kyrie, Rozier, Horford opts in, Morris resigns

Celtics- Westbrook
Thunder- Smart, Brown, 14

Celtics- Capela, Eric Gordon
Rockets- Horford, 20, 22

Celtics lineup-
Westbrook
Eric Gordon
Tatum/ Hayward
Morris
Capela

16 Jun 2019 15:50:24
Things are bad enough in Boston without Westbrook.

16 Jun 2019 23:36:58
Agreed. Boston is looking pretty much like a year down. Keep a couple young ones but the rest clearly isn’t working.

16 Jun 2019 11:28:08
OKC-POR

OKC- CJ McCollum, Zach Collins, first round pick

POR- Paul George

17 Jun 2019 14:36:37
I really don't get why either team should do this. It still leaves both teams with just a big 2 so why change players like that and give up the chemistry they have? You know Westbrook and George work good together and you know Lillard and Mccollum work good together, so make a trade to add to that and get a big 3 not change the big 2 you have and hope the chemistry is there cause that still won't help you win.

15 Jun 2019 21:14:18
Okc blows it up.

Okc/ bos

Okc:al horford, jaylen brown, 14 and 20th overall

Bos: Russell Westbrook

Okc/ lal

Okc Brandon Ingram, kyle kuzma, salary filler, 4th pick

Okc/ Dallas

Okc hardaway, lee, 2020 1st, 2nd rnd pick

Schroeder
Brown
Ingram
Kuzma
Horford.

15 Jun 2019 21:29:06
No one is giving up all that for Westbrook.

15 Jun 2019 22:46:58
Was the 2nd and 3rd trades for PG13 and Adams, respectively?

16 Jun 2019 09:08:41
Dallas trade can't happen bc they can't trade 3 picks in a row so knowledge the only thing that is blow up is your bathroom from crappy ideas.

15 Jun 2019 04:33:47
OKC-GSW

OKC-McKinnie

GSW-21st pick

It's a simple but good trade for both teams. The Warriors get a pick to try and get talent in case Thompson, Durant, or both leave.
OKC gets a shooter and some cap relief.

15 Jun 2019 03:53:40
OKC/BOS/WAS

OKC get Beal, Brown & Horford

Pg Westbrook/Shroeder
Sg Beal/Ferguson/Diallo
Sf Brown/Roberson/Nader
Pf Grant/Morris/Patterson
Ce Horford/Noel

BOS get George, Adams & Roberson

have a pitch to Irving to stay. They lose those picks but able to unload Hayward and get a superstar worthy of their package

Pg Irving/Smart/Wanamaker
Sg George/Roberson
Sf Tatum/Ojeleye
Pf Morris/Theis/Yabusele
Ce Adams/Baynes

WAS get Hayward, MEM 1st, 14th pick, 20th pick & 22nd pick

Pg Wall
Sg Satoransky
Sf Hayward
Pf Portis
Ce Bryant

15 Jun 2019 05:29:34
That's the best I have seen for Beal here. Helps everyone. Okc has to blow it up.

15 Jun 2019 16:45:13
Shiller 41, that trade is bad for Washington. They are getting a horrible contract, three mid rounders, and one potentially high pick in a bad class.

15 Jun 2019 16:46:02
Bad trade for Washington. To unload Hayward you need At least Pick 14 and #20. Sp just Pick #22 and a future Pick for Beal. That is really bad.

15 Jun 2019 01:47:42
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.

WAS-OKC

Parker, 9th pick
For
Adams, Diallo.

14 Jun 2019 21:36:38
Why for wizards?

14 Jun 2019 21:40:05
For the #9 pick? Please stop.

Maybe for 2023 2nd rounder from Chicago that Washington owns.

14 Jun 2019 22:08:32
The 9th pick doesn’t have much value. People on this site don’t understand that this is a three player draft and the rest are late first rounders in a ordinary draft. Watch the trades on draft night.

15 Jun 2019 00:16:05
Yeah, but Adams Isn’t worth his deal.

15 Jun 2019 00:45:30
Adams isn’t worth a top 10 pick.

15 Jun 2019 01:05:38
No, the #9 pick doesn’t have the value of a normal late first. It has the value of a normal top 10 pick. Saying that there’s only 3 players worth anything in this draft is ignoring the history of the draft.

14 Jun 2019 20:51:50
Hawks - Okc
Bazemore , Collins , Picks 8,10
For
PG

14 Jun 2019 20:04:33
Okc doesn't want to do the repeater tax. They are a small market and way over spending and way under achieving. I believe that they will be unable to find takers for bloated contracts that don't belong to Russ and PG. So, I believe their best option (although very unlikely) is to rebuild.

Hawks receive George, Felicio

Bulls receive Russ, Roberson, Anderson

Okc receives Porter, Bazemore, Plumlee, Markkanen, Hutchinson, #8, #10, #35

Hawks have a great core and George could help catapult them to contender status. They can afford the George contract with all their core guys on rookie deals. Adding a mvp caliber, 2-way player would be huge.

Bulls are a team without a star. Markkanen looks promising, but Russ could be the guy in Chicago. They've been on the hunt for a point guard for years. They also retain their first which is big.

Okc can't afford to have their current roster unless they win a title, and their current roster won't win a title. So this continues...

Okc receives Parsons, two future 2nd rounders

Memphis receives Steven Adams

Memphis had Valanciunas opt out recently, and could use a guy like Adams. JJJ is the future in Memphis, but he needs an enforcer who can do the dirty work. Adams is that guy. Ditching Parsons is a bonus.

OKC buys out Parsons or Bazemore. They save money and have the picks necessary to start over. I believe their window has closed, but a nucleus of Markkanen, Culver, Reddish, Hutchinson, Grant is intriguing.

14 Jun 2019 20:24:01
They can do much better than that for a rebuild. If they get rid of Russ and PG.

14 Jun 2019 20:39:38
Ric- maybe for George. I can't see Russ bringing back much.

14 Jun 2019 22:03:16
That’s way to much for Russ. No way are you getting Markannen. The guy is already on the verge of being a star. I’d rather have him straight up than Russ.

14 Jun 2019 22:44:04
Shiller they might not get much for Westbrook but in that 1st trade their return is for George and Russ both. If they move both of them they can do better than that.

16 Jun 2019 04:53:18
Might be nice for Hawks to rid themselves of a couple bad contracts but not at the expense of two lotto picks. Besides, I don’t see the return fitting their needs anyway.
