SAC: Horford


25 Jan 2020 05:19:42

2020 DEN 1st rd pick, Roberson


Bogdanovic, Giles

24 Jan 2020 17:41:59
Okc gets Porter Jr, Markkanen

Chicago gets Gallinari, Roberson, 2 firsts of their choice

24 Jan 2020 18:11:05
church why you are hurting okc. if those players were so good they would be winning in Chicago. maybe without the picks I consider.

24 Jan 2020 19:03:05
That’s not hurting Okc. Mark is probably a Gallo like player and on his rookie deal. Porter has size and immediately helps upgrade the wings.

Those picks can be DENVER and a protected one on top.

24 Jan 2020 19:12:06
Okc 2021 and latest Rockets pick?

25 Jan 2020 04:58:20
they would keep gallo then add picks they have already been offered al Horford and Zhaire Smith and a pick for gallo so no way is okc giving up pick idc if Roberson is in there or not it’s just not happening like I said once unless okc really gets what they like they would rather hold on to him and do a sign And trade next year okc is gunna get a very good return for him he is playing exceptionally well everyone that is a contender wants gallo he is a walking bucket getter I’d really like okc to keep him cause with the team okc has right now idc what anyone says they are about 2 good pieces away from being contenders if we had two more good scorers they would be set but they need to have some height to them and that can play good defense.

24 Jan 2020 14:54:46
The Suns get Robert Williams and Gallo

The Thunder get Hayward, Tyler Johnson, Bridges, Baynes and the Celtics 2020 1st

The Celtics get Adams and Schroeder

24 Jan 2020 15:29:41
why would okc do this.

24 Jan 2020 16:19:53
and who is okc going to buy out. no room on roster to take all 4.

24 Jan 2020 17:01:21
probably Burton.

24 Jan 2020 19:36:36
Windrapsfan, I’m sure they can find a roster spot. Cut Roberson or something.

Shizzee, they get younger, get a pick, save some money, sure up their wings and aren’t paying a role player 25 million dollars for the next 2 years.

You’re selling high on Schroeder. Baynes and Noel can give them 90 percent of what Adams does for 18 million less. Hayward fills a giants hole at small forward. They’ve done well at developing defensive minded wings and Bridges has all the raw tools you’d want on the defensive end.

25 Jan 2020 05:08:02
I had to bust your bubble but Schroeder is by far the best backup guard I’ve seen in the league and is shooting the ball really good any guy coming off the bench averaging 18 sometimes 23-25 a night is hard to come by and his contract is really not bad he will bring a good return I’d really like to keep him to be honest but if they’ve trade him they will come out good on him you watch and see.

24 Jan 2020 05:44:51

OKC: Bazemore, 2022 PHI top 5 protected first, 2020 SAC lottery protected first til 2021 then turns to 2 seconds

PHI: Gallinari, Bogdanovic

SAC: Horford

24 Jan 2020 12:56:42
Sacramento is getting ripped off. Both other teams are getting too much.

24 Jan 2020 14:01:15
Make that Dedmond instead of Bazemore and Sac is in.

23 Jan 2020 21:34:36

PHI gets Gallo

OKC gets Derozan, Horford, Poeltl

SAS gets Adams and OKC 1st rd pick ‘20



CP3/ Schroeder
Shai/ Ferg/
Derozan/ Diallo

23 Jan 2020 21:51:58
OKC would pass.

23 Jan 2020 14:45:27
According to Bleacher Report this morning, Dallas and Philly are two teams who have Danilo Gallinari on their radar.

If I'm OKC, I probably like Philly's trade pieces more than Dallas. Any Philly trade for Gallo would probably include Horford. I see two options. Take back Horford or find a third team to take him. So I came up with two trades that land Gallo in Philly while shipping out Horford.

1. OKC taking back Horford:

Okc gets Horford, Zhaire Smith, 2020 protected pick back
***They probably wouldn't lose the pick anyways as its top 20 protected, but this ensures they keep it. Horford reunites with Donovan and can help with an ailing Adams and Noel. He can also play alongside them and help improve D. Smith is in the G-League but is on a rookie deal and has some promise.

Philly gets Gallo, Roberson
***I could see Philly wanting Gallo as he provides so much space and could be an interesting fit with Embiid. If they did this, Dre would have to be thrown in to make salaries work, but I could see them attaching a second or something and flipping him to the Knicks for someone like Ellington or Gibson.

2. A third team takes Horford

Okc gets Nance, Dellavadova, Smith, their 2020 first back
***I like the idea of getting Nance who is younger than Horford and can grow with the team. Delly is expiring but could replace what you get from Ferg. Already spoke on Smith and pick. Retaining Dre allows them to do what Philly could've done in the previous deal: Try to convince the Knicks to take him with a second for Ellington or Gibson.

Philly gets Gallo, Henson
***This brings back Gallo but Henson as well. Henson could replace some of the D I guess and allows them more front court options. They don't have to take Dre.

Cavs get Horford, Ferguson, Burton
***Horford with Love could be a nice fit. I doubt they find a suitor for Love anyways, but this allows them to compliment him. Moving delly gives more minutes to Sexton and Garland. Ferg has shown he can play a role without putting up stats. Burton is filler but has shown glimpses in limited minutes.

23 Jan 2020 16:11:47
İf I was okc GM I wouldn't want okc pick back because it is top 20 protected. If it isn't convey this year it turns to two second. They should take sixer's first round pick. They can keep their pick and add one more to their collection.

23 Jan 2020 18:35:29
Horford>Gallo so why does Philly have to include a first? If anything, a pick like Denvers should be heading to Philly.

24 Jan 2020 04:42:54
No way is okc giving a pick to philly to get off gallo every contender will be wanting to give up a lot to have a guy like him

24 Jan 2020 08:08:53
Fredman, if Philly thinks that Horford (33 years old with 3 more years on his contract) is better than Gallo, then Philly should NOT be interested in trading Horford for Gallo at all since they’re competing for an NBA championship, no matter if someone throws in a 1st rounder or not.
It just wouldn’t make sense to do that if “Horford > Gallo”, right???

But what Churchpugh was referencing was the Bleacher report that said that Philly was interested. So if that HORRIBLE rumor mill trade reference called Bleacher Report is correct, what could Philly logicly offer for Gallo, if they don’t want to trade away a player that is better than Gallo?

Personally, I don’t think there is anything Philly can afford to give up that Okc would actually want and still get the salaries to work out.

Okc is completely fine with keeping Gallo this year and allowing his 22 mil to come off their books next year. Unless a team offers Okc a good trade for a Thunder player that helps that team compete for a championship this year, then Presti has no reason not to keep what he currently has for the rest of this season.

23 Jan 2020 11:52:38
Cavs get Roberson, Okc second, Spurs second

Spurs get Gallinari, Henson

Thunder get DeRozan, Lyles

Paul, Schroeder
SGA, Dort, Diallo
DeRozan, Ferguson
Lyles, Bazley
Adams, Noel

23 Jan 2020 13:08:03
If the Spurs decide to tank they can do better than this. and this trade is certainly not going to help them reach the playoffs.

23 Jan 2020 13:57:46
@wlndrapsfan, I see what you are saying, and here was my thought process. They have tons of 2 guards right now. They could very reasonably move one of them instead, but I think moving Demar makes a bit more sense if they can add bigs to offset the number of 2's. Both Gallo and Henson are expiring. I could see Henson not seeing a ton of minutes, but Gallo could open more room up for those other guys. He's played well.

24 Jan 2020 03:51:58
@ChurchPugh I just don't see the Spurs moving DeRozan without getting a nice future piece or a this year difference making piece. I don't see that deal out there for them, so it's either keep him or get some future value.

24 Jan 2020 03:52:42
but then again if I knew everything i'd have masai's job.

23 Jan 2020 08:17:13
Grizzlies - Thunder

Grizzlies gets:
Roberson (expiring)
2020 2nd rd pick
2021 2nd rd pick (31-40 protected)

Thunder gets:
Crowder (expiring)

23 Jan 2020 13:05:46
Good trade but not with protection.

23 Jan 2020 00:40:54
The Cavs get Johnson, Olynyk, the Denver 1st and a Miami 2nd.

The Heat get Love, Paul, and Noel

The Thunder get Dragic, Winslow, Waiters, and a Miami 2nd.

23 Jan 2020 07:21:05
Mmm i don't like it for the Thunder. I maybe in the minority.

23 Jan 2020 11:41:52
Love has zero value with that contract.

23 Jan 2020 11:50:21
Lmao shizzee.

23 Jan 2020 12:26:24
presti hangs up the phone and resolves to never take another trade call from miami.

23 Jan 2020 13:15:59
Why is okc sending first round pick? Paul is more valuable than love. Okc shouldn't give a pick to unload of Paul salary. He has a bad contract but not too bad to send a pick and take Waiters.

24 Jan 2020 00:13:03
Plane and simple, Miami has made it Extremely clear that they don’t want Paul’s contract. Because of its 3rd year option. It doesn’t matter how much more valuable or well he is playing. They would only take it if there were several 1st rounders attached so they could use those to help trade him later on.
Miami is fully aware that he would help their team, but they have some younger players they are targeting in free agency of 2021-22.
On the flip side, Okc would never want to take back all those teams leftover junk being sent back to them for a starting point guard, good backup center and a 1st Round pick. Why hurt your team, while making the team whose 1st Round picks you have better?

22 Jan 2020 19:55:08
Okc is playing good lately. They are 2.5 games behind 5 spot. If they can finish 5 they can avoid to face la teams in the first round. They can have a chance against jazz or nuggets. Dallas and Houston losing games and they can get 5 spot with some trades. Not big trades just good role players.

First trade


Okc- Bertans, Ish Smith

Wizards- A. Roberson, Muscala, denver pick.

Second trade


Okc- Morris
Knicks- Schröder, one second

22 Jan 2020 20:56:18
Not enough for Bertans.

22 Jan 2020 21:19:41
Ellington SMithjr Dal 2021 1st

22 Jan 2020 21:20:49
I would like to see
Okc & Washington but like this

Okc- get Bertans
Washington- get Denver 1st Andre Roberson burton & Diallo

22 Jan 2020 22:01:36
Rkeene- he is a rental a first for 40 games seems fair.

23 Jan 2020 00:05:56
Robinsons money is basically spoken for with noel so any trade with Roberson is with noel. Only way it isn't is if okc trades gallinari. Noel is being way underpaid so you have to consider that when you use robinsons money.

23 Jan 2020 04:37:28
If okc did the Marcus Morris deal they would have to do some kind of other deal to bring in Dennis smith jr for another backup pg.

22 Jan 2020 13:46:33
Any chance the Cavs would do this?

Cavs get Roberson, two seconds

OKC gets Nance

Cavs would get out of his longterm money which could be nice while paying Love so much over the same period of time.

Thunder would get some much needed 4/5 depth and could allow Noel and Adams some rest. They'd add a bit of salary, but Nance's deal isn't too bad. I'm sure they could still duck the luxury line somehow.

22 Jan 2020 14:49:42
I doubt it. Love, TT and Henson could all end up getting moved. I don’t think the Cavs would want to flip all of their bigs and Nance makes the most sense to keep. 2 2nds just doesn’t feel like enough to make them reconsider.

22 Jan 2020 15:35:27
Then what about Henson for Dre and two seconds?

22 Jan 2020 16:05:25
Seems pretty reasonable.

21 Jan 2020 14:42:51
Knicks get Wiggins, Roberson, 2020 first via okc (denver)
***They add a "starter level player", they add a pick, and they alleviate the pf logjam a bit.

Wolves get Gallinari, Ellington
***To me, teams built around an elite big are best when they surround them with shooters (ex: Howard in Orlando with Lewis, Turkoglu, Reddick, Nelson). This (along with the Crabbe deal) gives them more shooting and more space for KAT.

Thunder get Randle, Gibson, Culver
***Big time asset added. They also get much needed big depth with Noel and Adams hurting.

21 Jan 2020 14:48:31
As a Knicks fan, I’d take Wiggins

21 Jan 2020 15:06:51
Yur just as bad as these dallas fans. Every trade you propose is one sided for okc. You really think an expiring gallinari is really going to get u randle, Gibson and Culver who was a top 10 pick? You could argue that randle is better then gallinari, okc would have to offer a first along with him just for randle.

21 Jan 2020 15:38:01
Wolves won’t trade culver.

22 Jan 2020 01:24:09
YOur out your mind Randle is no where near close to Gallinari gallo the past 3 games is putting up 23-25 for okc shooting almost 40 percent from 3 Randle only attacks the rim and would cause more problems for Shai cause he likes to get inside

21 Jan 2020 11:58:13
Kings get Gallinari, Roberson
***Get out of the Dedmon contract, and they add tons of cap space to go on a run for Drummond this offseason. Gallo is also playing very well.

Thunder get Dedmon, Bogdanovic, Bjelica
***They can slide Bjelica right into the Gallo role, add a nice scorer in Bogdanovic who can be an upgrade at the 3 in the starting lineup or be a huge bench piece, and they get Dedmon who can allow rest time for Adams and Noel who have been struggling like crazy with injuries. This also cuts the cap down dramatically. They can guarantee Dort, cut Patton, and waive either Nader or Burton to make everyone fit.

Thoughts? Does okc need to include a pick(s)? If so, which ones? I really like the deal for both sides.

21 Jan 2020 13:06:48
A straightup swap of Roberson for Dedmon also works, but it would mean okc taking on a bit more salary. If OKC was willing to do Dre and Schroeder for Dedmon and Joseph, that would also work financially, but I'd hate to see Dennis go. Especially for that. Thoughts?

21 Jan 2020 15:28:15
No way does okc do that they would want Bogdanovic in any trade for gallo I know Adams and Noel are hurt but don’t see them adding another center

21 Jan 2020 17:25:14
I am good with the Denver pick for Sac.

22 Jan 2020 00:07:19
Don't get me wrong, Gallinari is an exceptional shooter, a very efficient scorer, and an overall smart basketball player, but he is also a thirty-one-years old, injury-prone, unathletic power forward that can't give you consistent rebounding, passing or defensive effort. He doesn't have a ton of playoff experience either. With all of this said, I don't see it possible for Thunder to pull off a heist and rob the Kings of both Bjelica and Bogdanović in exchange for Gallinari. Especially so given the fact that potential Bogdanović trade could land the Kings a much better deal with the Lakers (e.g. Kuzma for Bogdanović) or some other contender needing consistent third-option scoring.
Also, it is obvious that the Kings were wrong signing Dedmon to that 40 million-dollars-across-three-years deal and that they would very much like to get his contract off their hands, but at the same time they are in a playoff-contention mode and would want to get some value in exchange (Roberson hasn't played a single game for almost two years since suffering a gruesome knee injury).

23 Jan 2020 01:34:07
Thing is he might not be athletic but in okc he doesn’t need really need to be all he needs for okc is stretch the floor and he can score out the post and he does have playoff experience with okc they are playing him exactly to his strengths and look how good he is doing way better than last year when he was on clippers if okc do trade him they have so Many teams that have wanted him and if they do trade him they will get a good return but idk what okc is going to do yet

21 Jan 2020 05:47:02

Gallinari, Noel


Plumlee, Porter Jr.

*OKC gets younger

*DEN goes win-now mode.

21 Jan 2020 02:20:20

Celtics: Alec Burks

Playoffs roster: 10-deep
Starting: Kemba/ Jrue/ Brown/ Tatum/ Noel
Bench: Smart/ Burks/ Theis/ Kanter/ Ojeleye.

21 Jan 2020 05:49:34
I don’t see okc doing that for Noel cause he is on a really cheap contract and I see them resigning him for sure he has played really really well for okc this year I believe the thunder is gunna sit on most of there players unless they are Just absolutely blown away by an offer

20 Jan 2020 18:23:07
Blazers get Adams I.Smith
OKC get Wall Whiteside Portis Trier
Wiz get SmithJr Payton Ellington
Knicks get Paul I.Thomas Patton Tolliver Bulls 2nd

OKC get 5 yrs younger Wall in place of CP3. get out of Adams contract add a 2nd stretch 4 with expiring contract. 2 future 1st


Wizards Move Wall without any cost, while saving 24 mil this yr


Finally have leader eventually front office replacement.


20 Jan 2020 21:07:08
Shizzee- okc wins because of defense. Adams is the anchor. Why are they reading him?

20 Jan 2020 23:06:42
Why would OKC ever do that?

20 Jan 2020 17:55:10
Boston gets Adams, Bertans, Thomas
***Boston gets their center, add a shooter who can replace Hayward, and get a Isaiah Thomas reunion. All while not giving up a pick.

Wizards get Schroeder, Nader, Green, 2020 Denver 1st
***Schroeder is playing well and has starter experience. He's an immediate upgrade to quell Beal's frustrations and can help ease Wall back in next year. They add a first.

Thunder get Hayward, Bryant, Edwards
***Point is such a strength for the Thunder, but a wing upgrade would be big. They are a playoff team and have a unique chance to buy or sell. This team readjusts them, but it is probably a lateral move. I like it for the sheer fact that they get more wing scoring.

20 Jan 2020 19:15:29
Wizards give up 3 starters for what?

20 Jan 2020 21:30:08
did you really type Isaiah Thomas reunion with a straight face?

20 Jan 2020 09:29:32
OKC get:
Gordon Hayward

DET get:
Andre Roberson (exp)
Dennis Schroder
1st round pick MEM via BOS

BOS get:
Andre Drummond
1st round pick DEN via OKC

20 Jan 2020 21:49:17
I know that Denver pick will be late but I don’t see okc getting off a pick to unload Dre cause Schroder has already had interest from other teams

19 Jan 2020 09:42:51
Knicks Fire the management president and gm reestore popularity amongst players. Get rid most of the players. Bring in some leaders who eventually win run the organization

Okc get Portis Smithjr Trier Ellington Payton

Draft Wiseman, Azibuike and Tillie.

Trade Barrett Knox Ntilikina ny 2021 2023 unprotected 1st for Beal I.Smith 2020 2nd

Resign Marcus sign I.Thomas Melo & Markieff


19 Jan 2020 14:20:12
Last year the Knicks won 17 games. This year they are on a pace to win 21. Why break up a team on the rise? At this rate of improvement they will be a 60-win team a decade from now.
