CHI/OKC

CHI get Andre Roberson, Patrick Patterson & 2nd round pick

OKC get Jabari Parker

14 Dec 2018 04:18:43
OKC should do this to get out of the Roberson deal. They really need to get under the cap next season.

14 Dec 2018 01:57:58
OKc thunder- Terrance Ferguson & Andre Roberson and Abdel Nader trade
Phoenix- send T.J. warren

14 Dec 2018 05:23:29
Okc is stuck with overpaid often injured Roberson.

14 Dec 2018 15:14:33
Shiller, you are literally the biggest hater on here. I see no actual posts from you. You just hate on everyone else and you’re not even correct.

14 Dec 2018 15:16:37
Anyways, I think okc could easily trade Roberson, if Ferguson is included. Ferguson Young upside player and Roberson is “only” paid 10mil a year. Which is a lot but not much for an nba player. He’s also a top notch defender when healthy. Not sure tho if okc even wants to get rid of him.

13 Dec 2018 12:52:03
OKC get Hardaway Anderson Kornet Burke
Suns get Schroder Thomas OKC 1st
Kings get Roberson Lee
Knicks get Daniels Shumpert Abrines Randolph Kings and Suns 2nd

They add 2 better shooters to add to improve their depth. This trade puts them WCF.

Westbrook/Felton/Burke
Hardaway/Ferguson/Diallo
George/Grant/Cabarrott
Anderson/Paterson/Nader
Adams/Noel/Kornet

Much better balance team with a better starting PG without giving up any of their young core

Schroder/Okobo/Evans
Booker/Crawford/Melton
Jackson/Bridges/King
Warren/Holmes/Thomas
Ayton/Bender/Moreland

Stronger wings should help a balance attack and make them deeper. This should help them make the playoffs

Fox/Mason/Ferrell
Hield/Lee/McLemore
Roberson/Jackson/Bogdanovic
Bjelica/Labissierre/Giles
Bagley/Stein/Koufos

Clear all non rookie contract beyond this yr.

Ntilikina/Mudiay/Baker
Trier/Daniels/Abrines
Knox/Dotson/Shumpert
Vonleh/Randolph/Hezonja
Kanter/Robinson/Porzingis

Walker/Ntilikina/Ponds-48
Leonard/Trier/Ca.Martin-40
Durant/Dotson/Co.Martin-pickup
Porzingis/Knox/Paschall-32
Robinson/Bol-3/Govan-pickup

13 Dec 2018 16:40:28
The Kings are not trading $20 mil in expirings for a non-shooting Roberson and an overpaid Lee. They would be smarter to hold and wait to see about OPJ at the trade deadline.

13 Dec 2018 17:39:01
That’s awful for OKC.

12 Dec 2018 18:04:15
Oklahoma City and Phoenix Trade Deal


Thunder sends C Steven Adams
$8.1 Million Trade Exception
2 Future 1st Round Picks (Negotiable)


to Phoenix Suns for

T.J. Warren and Deandre Ayton

both have 4 years contracts!

12 Dec 2018 18:07:39
Adams and the 2 1sts non-lottery protected, I would do. Ayton is not a defender. He's a lesser version of Kanter from what I've seen from him. Shoots a little better. I would be shocked if the Thunder considered this.

12 Dec 2018 18:52:41
Never going to happen.

12 Dec 2018 19:13:46
I know the Sun's GM is rather new to the position, but that doesn't mean you should try to abuse him either.

12 Dec 2018 20:02:04
Adams is one of the worst contracts in the NBA to me. Obviously this isn't a serious post (at least, I hope it isn't) .

12 Dec 2018 23:21:25
Isn't the GM, Ryan McDonough? Or was he fired? Because, if it is still him, he's been around a while and he was working for Danny Ainge before that. He's not likely to cave or let anyone abuse him.

12 Dec 2018 23:24:30
My bad, apparently McDonough was fired. Don't know how i missed that. You can disregard my previous post lol.

12 Dec 2018 23:25:39
Yall r hating on Adams have yall seen him play this year? He has improved since last year he is scoring more while still doing all the dirty work, and fits OKC's system so well how do u consider him as one of the worst contracts in NBA? Mozgov, byombo, Thompson, mahinimi, dieng all of them are making 15 mil or more those are some of the actual bad contracts for just the center position. Adans deserves the contract he has I don't care what u say.

13 Dec 2018 00:55:39
It's the owner JoeB. James Johnson is the GM and he's cool so far. Robert Sarver is and has been a problem for awhile.

13 Dec 2018 01:25:47
Okc is balling. They need a shooter. No way prestige gets rid of Adams. He is the anchor of their defense.

13 Dec 2018 02:18:29
Okc needs shooting.


Okc sends Schroder and first rounder

Suns send ariza.

13 Dec 2018 02:18:42
James Jones.

13 Dec 2018 02:44:26
Sarver is not just a problem, he is THE problem with the Suns. Many, including me, wish he would just take his profits and sell the team to someone, (almost) anyone who knows how to run an NBA team.

11 Dec 2018 07:19:13
Thunder Trade Andre Roberson Patrick Patterson Carmelo Anthony Trade Execption

Suns Trade Trevor Ariza

11 Dec 2018 11:48:59
I one of that fits suns age plan.

09 Dec 2018 04:55:20

09 Dec 2018 05:50:54
Knicks only trading Hardaway for expiring contract. Not for Injury prone no def Parker.

09 Dec 2018 13:01:25
shizzee. And what assets is New York giving up to get an expiring deal for Hardaway?

09 Dec 2018 14:00:07
Shizze- parker is expiring.

09 Dec 2018 14:53:13
Hardaway for parker is even trade. No picks or others.

08 Dec 2018 15:31:51
Spurs get: Wiggins, Roberson, Patterson, 2nd via okc

Thunder get: Gasol, Okogie

Wolves get Aldridge, Metu

Spurs aren't making the playoffs. Instead, they get a defensive ace NEXT year in Roberson, and they take a chance on Wiggins. If Pop works his magic on him, he's worth moving Aldridge who isn't a fit in SA anyways.

Thunder basically turn Patterson into Gasol for this season as Dre is likely out for the year. Plus, Gasol coming off the bench next to Noel could be huge. Think Kanter and his impact in previous years offensively.

Wolves have been rumored to look at bringing Love home. But Aldridge is cheaper, and he has less years on his deal. He could work well with Towns as they each have a polished inside, outside game.

Thoughts?

08 Dec 2018 16:18:55
Think wolves should get rid of their pg that's it.

08 Dec 2018 18:50:23
U thinks will get alridge lmao.

08 Dec 2018 20:34:20
Dont think any contender wants Aldridge. I'd rather open time for 2 PGs playing well.

09 Dec 2018 23:02:49
I don't like this for thunder. Gasol doesn't fit Thunders system right now.

08 Dec 2018 01:34:16

Heat - Thunder

Heat gets:
Trade exception (Carmelo Anthony)
2nd rd pick (top 55 protected)

Thunder gets:
Ellington


Heat get under the luxury tax while Thunder get more depth.

07 Dec 2018 14:59:19
What about NBA salary match rules?

07 Dec 2018 15:43:15
That’s why they use the trade exeption.

07 Dec 2018 16:07:15
How much is the exception for? If it's 7 mil or more it works.

07 Dec 2018 23:09:25
It’s 10.5 million.

04 Dec 2018 18:09:07
NYK- John Wall, Alex Albrines
WSH- Tim Hardaway, Jeremy Lamb, Frank Ntilitkina
OKC- Courtney Lee, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
CHA- Dennis Schroder, Markieff Morris

Knicks acquire a much needed PG and take on two expiring contracts to allow them to pursue top FA this offseason.

Wizards acquire Lamb and Ntilikina to get younger, and take on THJ to offset salary.

Thunder acquire a better 2 for their system in Lee and get a solid defender in MKG. Schroder doesn't seem to fit what they were expecting when they acquired him.

Hornets pick up Schroder to replace Kemba in the offseason and an expiring contract in Morris


I think this trade really benefits all teams involved. A 2nd round pick may need to be added somewhere, but this core makes sense for all 4 teams

04 Dec 2018 21:35:10
OKC says no. Shroeder playing good for them as a sixth man.

07 Dec 2018 02:13:23
Yea OKC says no. Schroder has fit what they wanted whem they got him.

02 Dec 2018 19:27:27

03 Dec 2018 00:28:55
Magic trade starts and sixth man and 7th man for an overpaid PG? I'd rather lose and draft one.

03 Dec 2018 01:12:00
Orlando gives up Simmons, Ross, and Augustin for Schroeder? Hard pass. Simmons himself is worth more.

02 Dec 2018 16:42:13

Re-sign Enes Kanter 4 years $80 million

29 Nov 2018 18:23:20
Why wouldn't the knicks keep Frank Ntilikina and try for Beal instead of Wall? OKC might even take Thomas in there trade exception to us at Pf.

29 Nov 2018 18:36:58
Why in the world would the Knicks give Kanter that contract?

29 Nov 2018 18:41:33
Why not keep Frank Ntilikina and instead of giving that much for wall get Beal instead? It will save the knicks tons of money wall is over paid and Beal is under paid.

29 Nov 2018 20:56:04
No thank 1 and 3 trade are no, no.

29 Nov 2018 20:58:34
The Knicks wouldn’t have that kind of space if they get Wall. His contract goes from 20 million to 37 million next year. Would they even have money to get Durant? They would definitely have to waive Kanter’s cap hold.

29 Nov 2018 21:08:35
Why would they trade Frank then look for a defensive 2 in FA lol, also he's worth much more then wilson Chandler.

29 Nov 2018 21:41:47
Noahmerv, I agree with everything you said except on Ntilikina. He has been a disappointment on the wing offensively, and @ PG. With the new NBA rules he has been a bit of a problem. Great on defense, lots of promise there. Chandler plays the 2,3,4 is on a contract that expires, could be re-signed for not a lot, good defender, shooter, facilitator.

29 Nov 2018 16:36:45
#1 Okc Knicks

Okc gets Lee
Knicks get Patterson and Abrines and a 2nd round pick.Knicks clears out more cap space and gets a 2nd round pick. Its obvious for okc 3 point shooting/better defense.

#2 okc and kings

Kings get tlc
Okc gets Skal Labissiere

Kings get rid of a player they are not going to use and let Tlc walk after this year opens up roster spot.
Okc get young Pf/C to hopefully develop on a cheap contract.

#3 Okc signs Burton for as long as they can 3 or 4 years he takes over back up Pf until the buyouts start happening and maybe pick up a player like Michael Beasley.

29 Nov 2018 17:14:04
Both trades are good but also don't really lure the other team into the deals much. The kings trade is pretty solid but Skal is nowhere near TLC in development. Ferguson, Diallo or another 2nd would make the Knicks deal better too.

29 Nov 2018 17:29:50
Knick are looking to save as much money as they can to sign Durant and others so i think they would do it i would mind throwing in another 2nd round pick if they just demanded it.

29 Nov 2018 18:28:50
I'd never let Durant go if I had him. GSW is going to keep him. They have the dough and Thompson so far isn't looking all NBA so they can pay Durant, Thompson, Curry and let Green go or trade him 2 summers from now. Taking less for Lee isn't very good check book management for far less than a sure thing.

29 Nov 2018 20:57:47
Yeah Okc wouldn't of let him go either but it wasnt there choice Durant already won his Championships I believe he will leave and go somewhere where he can win on his own and build his brand. Knicks would be a good choice and they have the peices to build a contender fast.

29 Nov 2018 20:59:18
It’s not about Durant getting money. He might just want out of GS. They were always going to be willing to pay him.

29 Nov 2018 22:03:45
Rkenne_16, I wasn't saying GSW was/ wasn't willing to pay him. Others were on here though, and that is more for them and you I guess than a point I was making really. Durant said on camera recently that he was taking no more discounts. You have something in your kraw about his wanting out that I am not referencing and I try to ignore. It's just drama to me. Your right for all I know but it's not something I have any information about.

30 Nov 2018 00:51:56
Golden State is Currys team "they won before Durrant and they will win after him" I already belived with all the heat Durant took for joining them he would always have that in the back of his mind but thanks to Draymond i know he does now. Kd will get paid anywhere he goes but his Brand will make him more money than basket ball will and i think New York will be the best place to do that and i'm almost sure Durant does too.

30 Nov 2018 03:04:25
NY has an owner with a bad reputation. A heart-on-his-sleeve character like Durant, whose mother is very much a part of his life/ career? Durant is a DC boy if he's homesick, and they have no shot. GSW is all that makes sense right now. He and Leonard in LAC sounds incredible to me and possible or more likely than NY. Durant and Leonard in LA would kill it in marketing. With LBJ across the way? Forget about it! Look out NBA!

28 Nov 2018 12:30:14
Magic - Thunder

Magic gets:
Schroder
Patterson
Ferguson

Thunder gets:
Gordon
Grant
2021 2nd rd pick

Thunder lineup:
Westbrook/Grant/Felton
Roberson/Abrines/TLC
George/Diallo/Nader
Gordon/Grant
Adams/Noel

28 Nov 2018 12:38:33
Gordon is worth more than all three thunder players. The thunder don't have a 1st as of now, valuable enough to even the value out to make this palatable.

28 Nov 2018 15:12:20
He scores 0 points last night and Magic need a point guard.

28 Nov 2018 15:58:35
He's big, athletic, young, defends the SF, and PF well. Is on a new 20 mil a season contract the ink hasn't dried on yet. You can't highlight Ferguson, or Patterson this season or last. I think Gordon is way more valuable than shroeder. Westbrick had a seven point game maybe there's something there!

29 Nov 2018 17:02:27
I like Gordon but i think okc is better off keeping Schroder this year than getting gordon. I don't think this is a bad trade for either team at the same time Gordon has been a good player the last 2 years but is injury prone. Schroder would be a good fit for Orlando and Orlando has a decisions to make  Nikola Vucevic or Gordon and if it was me Vucevic would be my choice he is ballin his defense is so much better than is used to be. So if i was orlando i would do it and Play Vucevic at pf and Bamba at C.

27 Nov 2018 21:22:22
76ers-Magic-Heat


76ers get Jonathon Simmons and OKC’s 2020 1st rd pick (via Magic)


Magic get Goran Dragic


Heat get Markelle Fultz and DJ Augustin.

28 Nov 2018 10:47:34
Fultz is nowhere near that value.

28 Nov 2018 12:26:33
Even if he was, the Sixers are only trading him for an expiring contract or someone they view as a (potential) star.

28 Nov 2018 12:47:48
Exactly smunro, so the Sixers will have to pay to get an expiring because Fultz has another season at 10 mil. For Philly to get out of Fultz Scott free they are going to have to take back close to equal or throw a 2nd, which is only about a 5 mil value add on. Fultz and a 2nd for Jr. Smith is about right.

28 Nov 2018 13:33:29
Yeah, if JR Smith had any type of value to the Sixers. I seriously think they'd rather send Fultz to the G-League and play the long game with his development than just pack it in for a guy who won't really contribute to a title run this year. The buy-out market is expected to be hot and Philly is an attractive destination so trading Fultz is not a necessity. That's why the Sixers will be stingy with what they take back for him. Its down to an expiring contract that can help this year which would probably take Fultz and a second; a star which would look something like Fultz, Smith, Chandler, and the Miami pick; a swap of underachieving high draft picks which again would probably take Fultz and a second or late first; or finally, develop him and be patient.

28 Nov 2018 16:06:47
++ on the buy-out market. Your right, its going to be packed with guys looking for teams that need help. There ae plenty. I am with you on Smith, he wouldn't likely see much court time, but he'd be off your books for 4 mil next season and is a good trade chip this summer for only 4 mil. I wish I believed Fultz problem was a youth thing, I think he messed something up that will take all his time to correct if he can. David Duval. I have never seen his swing, he won't display it publicly. Reminds me of Fultz scenario a little.

27 Nov 2018 08:40:56

27 Nov 2018 09:31:29
it's a fair trade valuewise.
but why would OKC do this?

27 Nov 2018 10:08:06
Actually i'm just checking out the value.

27 Nov 2018 14:24:59
If I was the Lakers, I'd rather have Beal if I'm trading away all the assets.

27 Nov 2018 06:11:11
PHX-OKC

Warren

For

Abrines, Patterson, 2020 2nd rd pick

PHX does this to give more playing time to Jackson and Bridges at the forward spot while gaining a young shooter with improving defense. (Believe it or not Abrines is top 8 in defensive rating in the whole league) Warren and Abrines are both 25 and Abrines would be the best back up SG for Booker cause of similar playing style sans Booker's ball handling.

OKC does this cause they need a more dependable offensive forward off the bench. With surplus of wings, Abrines would be expendable and opens up another roster spot for the buyout market.

27 Nov 2018 14:28:31
Make it a 1st, and we'd be getting somewhere.

27 Nov 2018 05:58:13
Cavs go full tank mode to keep their draft pick

OKC send: '19 & '21 2nd (Melo TPE)
Cavs send: Korver
OKC add a shooter, Cavs cut salary and add draft picks

Phi send: Fultz
Cavs send: Clarkson, '21 2nd
Phi get a shot creator off the bench, Cavs get potential

Hou send: Knight, '19 1st top 24 protected (converts to 2 2nds)
Cavs send: Smith
Hou get a serviceable wing, Cavs get draft pick for taking on salary

Wash send: Mahinmi, '19 2nd
Cavs send: Thompson
Wash get an upgrade at back up C, Cavs trim 2-3m in salary per year and add a 2nd

Pho send: Anderson, '19 1st (Bucks)
Cavs send: Hill, 2x '19 2nd
Pho get their PG and cut salary for next season, Cavs move up in the draft

PG: Sexton, Fultz, Knight
SG: Hood, Nwaba
SF: Osman, Dekker
PF: Love, Anderson, Frye
C: Nance, Mahinmi, Zizic

'19 draft could have picks 3 (Cavs), 25 (Hou) & 27 (Bucks)

27 Nov 2018 15:23:20
As far as the Thunder trade goes we do need more 3 point shooting but we have to many SG/ SF right now to add another one without trading away one of them. We could use a better stretch 4 for the bench and trade away Patterson.

27 Nov 2018 16:15:45
Not sure Clarkson is what the Sixers are looking for especially since he's on the books for next year. Make it Hood and Dekker for Fultz and PHI 2020 1st rounder and you got a deal. Dekker is there to make the money work.

26 Nov 2018 21:40:12
Thunder and Pelicans

Pelicans get Westbrook and Patterson
Thunder get Holiday, Mirotic, and 3 or 4 1st round picks


Pelicans pair up Davis and Westbrook that can be a scary duo. Pelicans show Davis they want to win to keep him happy and hopefully resign when the time comes.

Thunder where playing ok without Westbrook for a short period of time and Holiday fits the Thunders system better. They also add better 3 point shooting in Mirotic a long with some 1st round picks.

Do yall think this is a good trade? Who wins this trade and is it fair for both sides? I think this trade is fair and both teams have a reason to make this trade.

27 Nov 2018 01:13:43
nah both teams don't do it. Westbrook is never getting traded and to be honest there playing great together but they do need shooters. they should go after Smith or Korver Smith can land u some picks just to get him off the Cavs hands plus some draft picks will help .

27 Nov 2018 11:08:47
I get the idea behind it, you try to appeal to AD by making moves but Holiday has been playing lights out. Plus you give up Mirotic and several picks which means you have no future growth through draft. Pels need to make that kind of move at SF, or at least not give up Holiday in a package that gets you a PG. Jrue can dlide back to SG.
