OKC get Harris
Nets get Roberson 2019 1st, and future 2nd if needed

OKC improve their bench this off season they would have Schroder and Harris coming off the bench plus whatever they can do in FA with minimum contracts.

18 Apr 2019 17:40:19
Not enough for Harris. Roberson has negative value.

18 Apr 2019 17:18:48
OKC get Richardson
Heat get Roberson 2019 1st. and future 2nd if needed

OKC starting lineup

They sign some 3 point shooting for the bench with some minimum contracts.

18 Apr 2019 17:40:27
Not enough for Richardson. Roberson has negative value.

18 Apr 2019 16:17:18
IF OKC wanted to blow it up.

ATL: #5 + #9 + Clev 2020 + Prince + Spellman

OKC: George.

18 Apr 2019 17:27:02
If i'm OKC blowing it up i would keep George and try trading Westbrook. Only if i can't get a strong return for Westbrook i try trading George, but George is the better 2 way player.

Wizards / Thunder Trade

Wizards gets
Steven Adams and Dennis Schroder
Plus 3 2nd Round Picks
-4 Wins in the Trade Machine

Thunder gets
Bradley Beal and Ian Mahinmi
No Change on the Trade Machine

Thunder needs Beal . I will miss Adams Interior Defense and the Thunder needs to waive Roberson and get rid of his $10 Million Salary . I'm a bit worry about Paul George's shoulder and that's why I want Beal badly and he is a good friend with Russell Westbrook and I know that this trade will not happen and this is my last one until NBA Draft Day.

15 Apr 2019 17:01:06
Not even close for Beal.

15 Apr 2019 17:27:04
Waiving Roberson doesn't remove his salary from the salary cap for next year.

Also OKC doesn't have 3 2nd rounders to trade at the moment (unless you are counting the 2020 from Chicago that will most likely not be conveyed because of protections) . OKC'S 2022-2025 2nd rounders may be conveyed (due to protections) instead of the 2 first rounders that OKC owes, thus making them untradeable at the moment.

This is one of the major reasons OKC is not going to be able to upgrade their roster next year.

15 Apr 2019 18:05:44
Adams has far more value to OKC than he does in a trade. He's not going to improve much more, and he can't be a top 2 offensive option. He doesn't have much/ any value to a rebuilding team, which is what I assume Washington would be if they move Beal.

10 Apr 2019 20:36:47
if thunder lose first round of playoffs again
thunder trade Steven Adams
bulls trade zach lavine

thunder starting 5
most athletic starting 5 in recent history

bulls trade wendel carter and valentine for Josh Richardson

Draft coby white
coby white
promising young players with veterans to mentor them.

10 Apr 2019 21:19:30
Why would the Bulls want another big?

10 Apr 2019 22:30:29
Adam's is only rim protector okc has.

11 Apr 2019 00:28:16
I agree. Adams would be hard to move for OKC unless they are getting a star. I’m not saying Lavine isn't one but Adams just fit so well with them. OKC must find role players especially off their bench.

11 Apr 2019 07:07:49
Adams size free's up shooting in the high screen, and roll. Nurkic does the same for the blazers, they are both wide loads, and create a lot of space for their teams offenses. Hard to replace without retooling a bit. GSW picked up Bogut to be able to match-up to the big boys.

12 Apr 2019 14:33:05
I don’t see the Bulls giving up Wendell Carter right now, so the OKC and Miami trades are unlikely.

06 Apr 2019 21:51:00

BOS get Paul George

OKC get Jayson Tatum & Gordon Hayward

Pg Westbrook
Sg Hayward
Sf Tatum
Pf Grant
Ce Adams


BOS get Davis, Hill

NOP get Horford, Brown, 4 1st round picks

resign Kyrie

BOS Celtics

Pg Irving
Sg Smart
Sf George
Pf Davis
Ce Baynes

06 Apr 2019 22:26:30
If Horford opts in he can't be traded until December 15 2019, it would still be possible if NOP was willing to drag out the Davis/ Klutch drama any further, but I think they conclude all earthly business with Davis in July, quickly.

06 Apr 2019 23:57:40
I would rather have Tatum and Hayward than PG13. Anyway
New Orleans will want Tatum in a deal for AD.

07 Apr 2019 02:45:15
That’s not true. If he opts in, his contract isn’t new, he can be traded the day any time after he opts in.

07 Apr 2019 05:04:00
No it is not, I stand corrected.

08 Apr 2019 09:18:55
What you would prefer Hayward and Tutum over PG? Hayward has negative value with his contract. So you think Tatum has more value than PG. I think this take is pretty eclusive.

08 Apr 2019 23:00:01
Hayward has negative value in a trade, not in real life on a team.

You’re getting Hayward and Tatum for the same price as George, so count them both. It is somewhat close, but I’d take George over them both.

09 Apr 2019 09:36:22
Now I don't get you. You say Hayward has negative value in a trade. But if you say you have to spend the same for Hayward and Tatum than for PG that means Tatum is way more valuable than PG. That's just wrong.
If I had to take PG or Tatum I would take PG by far and I'm sure every GM as well. So how do you come to your take?
You have to build a team and if you spend 30 million on an average player like Hayward you can't keep others.

09 Apr 2019 23:09:54
Absolutely would rather have Hayward and AD over PG13, every day of the week ;)

02 Apr 2019 18:44:04
OKC Offseason


OKC-Patterson, Devon Hall (Draft Rights),2x Second Round pick

Memphis-Ivan Rabb, Dillon Brooks

Resign/ Options

Noel-2y 7M
Nader-Accept Option
Rabb-Accept Option

Free Agent Targets-

Terrence Ross

Charles Bassey/ Carson Edward's

Potential Depth-

Westbrook/ Shroder/ (Edwards)
Roberson/ Furgeson/ Diallo
George/ Burton/ Brooks/ (FA)
Grant/ (FA) / Nader
Adams/ Noel/ (Bassey)

Let me know what you think!

I know some of it is a little bit out there.

02 Apr 2019 19:20:26
Why for Memphis? 2 young's on cheap reals for a tanking team seems perfect.

02 Apr 2019 19:39:35
Where is the cap coming from for free agents?

02 Apr 2019 19:47:04
Might as well sign Durant too, salary cap going up to a quarter billion and all!

03 Apr 2019 14:28:47
The free agents are just targets. The roster spots are potential roster fillings.

06 Apr 2019 21:50:18
Supercollider, the AD deal will Mirror the Irving deal?

The Kyrie Irving deal:

I Thomas - Tatum
J. Crowder - Smart 4 AD
Zizic - R. Williams
C. Sexton - SAC 1st (picked)

Is this what you had in mind? I'd still trade a pick to offload Hayward because Irving, Davis, Horford, Hayward are going to be very expensive, and with Brown and Morris they could get by, or sign a cheaper FA, SF reserve, or trade for one while moving Hayward possibly.

21 Mar 2019 21:22:49
OKC Thunder Off-season 2019 Free Agency

Thunder Trade Russell Westbrook to Memphis

Memphis Trade Mike Conley Ivan Rabb to Thunder

If Thunder lose first or second round in playoffs this season I think they should Trade Russell Westbrook straight up

22 Mar 2019 01:29:20
Why would Memphis trade for him no pucks no help to rebuild?

22 Mar 2019 02:30:26
Still the worst gm.

22 Mar 2019 15:15:59
That’s ridiculous, you don’t give up Westbrook for Conley.

11 Apr 2019 16:36:10
No way the Thunder do that trade. I agree if they have a disapointing playoff run try to trade him but u need value back not just try to get rid of him. Conley isn't as good as Russ and he has been struggling with a lot of injuries the past few seasons. I doubt this happens but if i'm OKC I throw Russ at pelicans for Davis and see if that interest them at all.

20 Mar 2019 15:18:20
If playoff starts today the match in the West would be

1 GS vs 8 LAC
2 DEN vs 7 UTA
3 HOU vs 6 OKC
4 POR vs 5 SAS

what a terrible stretch by OKC move them to #6 to play the Rockets. DEN will be having a hard time against UTA, POR SAS interesting while it's almost walk in the park for GS

20 Mar 2019 16:14:16
GSW in 5 or 6 - I think everyone gets this. Clips are scrappy, they'll get at least 1
DEN in 6 - DEN has the deeper team, and has the matchups player 4 player. Fun series
HOU in 6 - HOU will team shoot OKC out of building
POR in 7- Home court teams. S. A. could pull off an upset, then lose in the 2nd round. Good for DEN/ UTA.

20 Mar 2019 21:05:54
@jorgawood I don’t disagree with you, but it depends on which version of okc and Houston show up. Both teams have looked like either an unbeatable teams and a cripplingly top heavy teams. Depends on supporting casts and who is on fire at the time.

20 Mar 2019 22:23:02
I think the clippers finish 6th, spurs 7th, okc 8th. Thunder have an atrocious final 10 games stretch. Clippers have a pretty favorable final 10.



21 Mar 2019 02:50:58
@churchP, the Thunder always have the chance to win. Even if they finish 8th they are still the 3rd,4th or 5th best in the west, 8th,9th or 10th best in the league. If they push the pace, cause turnovers, HOU is in trouble.

19 Mar 2019 09:35:58
OKC: K Love

Spurs: Schroder

Cleveland: P Mills+ A robertson+ 1rnd pick toronto+ 2rnd pick OKC 2020

19 Mar 2019 12:00:00
Toronto's pick isn't valuable enough. Add another 1st from someone else.

19 Mar 2019 13:06:50
The Cavs should pass on that. Cedi and Sexton have both looked really good with Love back. There’s no reason to take on those two contracts just for a 1st in the late 20s. There’s a good chance that Roberson isn’t going to be the same player coming back and Mills is an expensive back up pg for a team that has a ton of guards on the roster.

19 Mar 2019 21:15:37
Getting any pick for love is a win. Guy is overpaid and plays 50 games year.

18 Mar 2019 19:24:00

Too High Garland Bol Grimes and Hayes

Too Low White Little Fernando and Alexander

Or else it's perfect 😁.

19 Mar 2019 08:07:32
Spurs trade up for Little? Package their 2 1st rounders to move up?

19 Mar 2019 09:12:17
God, I so hope the Knicks end up out of the Williamson sweepstakes. Just to pick off all Knicks fans. Lol.

19 Mar 2019 11:19:49
Still irving is leaving to the knicks. And Davis won't join either. Puke green is done 🤣.

19 Mar 2019 14:04:24
Hahaha. laugh it up now Shizzee. You'll be puking in your mouth when the Celts trade for Davis and resign Kyrie. L.

19 Mar 2019 18:04:41
You’ll both be upset when the Cavs get Zion!

19 Mar 2019 22:04:04
I would be upset if cavs get him, not Phoenix though.

14 Mar 2019 16:33:53

June 30th - Oklahoma gets Snell, 2022 SRP, 5.5 mil cash with Melo exception and Connaughton with Luwawu-Cabarrot exception.

July 1st - Ilyasova for Patterson

Oklahoma adds three role players that will help their shooting and depth issues. They will be taking on 14.5 mil from this deal, but it will be for three players over one and they get some cash to lighten their tax bill. They also take a SRP as a sweetener to draft a high school player in 2022.

Milwaukee opens money to bring back their FAs and even avoid the tax. With Lopez taking the full MLE (9,2 mil) and Middleton, Mirotic, Brogdon starting at 25, 16, 15 they will be just at the tax line. They will have some more money till the apron to spend if needed.

14 Mar 2019 22:05:17
Ilyasova for Patterson I wouldn't do. Snell might become necessarily expendable.

15 Mar 2019 01:11:16
@jorgawood, Agreed! Brogdon also might become expendable. I would look to trade Brogdon to the L. A. Lakers for B. Ingram. Then Move Middleton back to SG.
Giannis A.


15 Mar 2019 05:57:56
The news front dropped a bomb, and then went pretty quiet on Ingram. That usually means this is serious as can be. 2 months we'll know for sure, and if Brogdan would sign a friendly deal for at least 3 seasons to make the S&T possible, then it sounds pretty good. Also, couldn't interfere with any Laker FA plans. Ingram is going to be even more expensive than Brogdan for the Bucks to keep if he plays well, after next season.

15 Mar 2019 15:06:49
I don’t see Brogdan taking a team friendly S&T deal to go to the Lakers. I think he’s going to want to hit the market, and someone is going to give him some cash.

15 Mar 2019 21:41:29
@ Triangle O and jorgewood, . From what is being said in Wisconsin, Brogdon is becoming a little to "political" for some peoples taste. Including management. Its said, "Now I have a platform to speak about all the segregation here in Milwaukee! I was "warned before I got here, Now I can see it for myself! " Not a good way to let people (And management) know you want to stay in Milwaukee!


15 Mar 2019 22:12:19
Not a good way to let them know? Or letting them know he wants to be part of the change to make Milwaukee "better".

15 Mar 2019 23:16:01
Everyone has the right to free speech. I would say not 2 inches from my face, but yes that right is real, and important to America. If Brogdan is laying false claim, or bringing problems where none exist, my line with him would firm up significantly as an owner.

16 Mar 2019 22:02:05
Ingram had some good news today. His condition was structural and not blood related. Dodged a huge bullet it appears. Glad to hear it.

17 Mar 2019 10:13:42
@Fredman and jorgawood. My thoughts are, If Milwaukee is so segregated and racist as Brogdon and actually the President of the Bucks stated, #1, Why not ask for a trade? #2 Then why did the Pres. take the job? Agreed, Everyone is entitled to their opinions. But, I don't think using the "Job" forum is the way to go. Go to your jobs, and try using it to promote, or discuss your private political thoughts in any meeting, Or in public, While representing the Co. You work for. Again, my thoughts


07 Mar 2019 00:44:08

LAL get Westbrook & Roberson

OKC get James & Ball

07 Mar 2019 13:09:18
I don't think LBJ would go to OKC, but that would be a great starting five (four)

08 Mar 2019 13:48:23

06 Mar 2019 23:38:00
Boston Off-Season 2019 Free Agency

Sign and Trade with Kyrie Irving 4 yrs 145.8 millions

Boston Trade Kyrie Irving to Thunder

OKC Trade Russell Westbrook to Boston

If Kyrie Irving agrees Sign and Trade to Oklahoma City play with Paul George for Russell Westbrook if they lose in first round playoff early this season

07 Mar 2019 04:48:52
Eew, I wouldn’t want Westbrook on that Boston team. They play too much unselfish team ball for him to fit in any way.

07 Mar 2019 22:47:33
Russ leads the league in assists, but he’s selfish. hm.

08 Mar 2019 00:38:05
Church, no one else gets to touch the ball when Russ is in.

11 Mar 2019 15:45:56
Rondo used to lead the league in assists too. They're easy to get when you pound the ball into the ground until there's five seconds on the shot clock, then pass the ball. Just because someone gets good assist numbers doesn't mean they don't also hog (for lack of a better term) the ball. That can absolutely work given the right players and system, but the Celtics are based on ball movement, which is why Kyrie isn't a seamless fit.

06 Mar 2019 01:18:30
2019 Free Agency if OKC lose first round early again

Thunder Trade Russell Westbrook

Pelicans Trade Anthony Davis Solomon Hill

Pelicans ReSign Julius Randle 3 yrs 74.2 millions

Pelicans fire coach Alvin Gentry & Hired David Blatt

What y'all think?

06 Mar 2019 14:13:33
I would be stunned if Randle got a $25 mil per offer this off season.

06 Mar 2019 14:58:33
I just gave you my first "believable" ever. I doubt OKC gives up Westbvrook but i still liked the whole proposal.

06 Mar 2019 21:21:52
Do you think A Davis would stay in OKC?

It would be a great trade if he stays, this is a great starting five.
C:S Adams
Pf:A Davis
SF: P George
PG: Schroder

I don't think you can trade Russ without a discount and OKC has already traded two future first round picks, so i would keep him and be happy with a second round exit. Selling jerseys and tickets with an excited player on the team.

06 Mar 2019 21:59:56
Westbrook doesn’t have near the value AD does.

06 Mar 2019 22:11:06
I don't hate it. I think OKC would be better if George was made the primary ball handler with AD as his big.

And I think NO would love to keep a star that will attract fans. They're the smallest NBA market, they might not want to stomach a full rebuild.

07 Mar 2019 01:09:02
🤣👍 dacman, best trade idea yet smoothdaddy.

05 Mar 2019 13:42:55
Prince>Thompson. So no way Cleveland gets all those draft picks.

05 Mar 2019 15:50:01
Friedman, that’s what it would take to trade for Zion and I don’t think that’s even a no brainer for Cleveland. The guy is most likely a sure fire future star.

05 Mar 2019 21:00:18
Okay. So Atlanta is trading away Collins to make room for Zion? Atlanta doesn't seem like a good "trade up" partner for Zion. I think they are going with the bedt player available option in this upcoming draft.

03 Mar 2019 12:58:39
Detroit starts rebuilding

1) Detroit-Spurs-OKC

OKC: B Griffin

Spurs: Schroder

Det: Noel+ Robertson+Mills+Forbes+ 1rnd pick OKC 2024+ 2rnd pick OKC+ 2rnd pick spurs

Det: Hayward+ 1rnd pick Memphis 2020
Boston: Drummond

04 Mar 2019 02:03:05
Please work on your cap space managment. Blake makes $34 mil next season while Roberson + Noel (assuming he opts in) is $13 mil and OKC is already over the luxury tax for next year let alone the salary cap for next year. Toss in schroder and the Melo trade exception to get the salaries right.

04 Mar 2019 04:06:57
My bad. didn't see shroeder getting diverted to the Spurs.

02 Mar 2019 10:49:55
Atlanta Hawks Offseason Moves

-Trade John Collins, Taurean Prince, Miles Plumlee, #4 pick, #10 pick, and OKC’s 2022 protected 1st rd pick for Anthony Davis


02 Mar 2019 13:31:34
What a waste he won't resign.

02 Mar 2019 16:11:04
Yes he easily could, they will have space for a tier 2 free agent this year and cap space for another max contract next offseason.

02 Mar 2019 22:31:34
Atlanta can give NO the best package and they have the capspace to sign a second star that could come. Most players rather win championships with small market teams than play for Big market teams and miss the playoffs.

04 Mar 2019 09:18:01
True, but no one has ever shown a penchant for signing in the ATL, and I don’t see AD being the first.

04 Mar 2019 15:27:32
Trading for young unproven players could net you all Lonzo Ball, Frank Nkilitina, Brandon Ingram, Trae Young, Andrew Wiggins. Take years to develop, if they ever do. I'd want a combo of some sort to diversify a little, even if I was the for sale Pelicans.

01 Mar 2019 09:09:29

Atlanta: A Davis

NO: Bazemore+ Len+ 1rnd pick Atlanta+ 1rnd pick Dallas+ 1rnd pick cle 2020+ 1rnd pick OKC 2022

Atlanta sign K Durant max contract
sign M Williams 10M for 2 years
Sign Reddick or W Matthews 5M for 1 year
Y Lin 10M for 1 year

C: Davis/Plumlee
PF:Collins/ M Williams
SF:: K Durant/Prince
SG: Huerter/reddick
PG: Young/ y Lin

01 Mar 2019 09:37:47
Collins would have to be added to the Davis trade.

01 Mar 2019 16:25:03
If the pick falls at anything but #1, then yes, Collins would need to be included. But if it were #1, I could see it happening as is.

01 Mar 2019 16:53:44
Riddick will get an offer of more than $5 mil from another team. Teams over the cap have an exception larger than that.

01 Mar 2019 22:21:45
The problem here is, it would be a guaranteed 1 year rental. There is no way he would re-sign it with the Hawks. He would ultimately be in the same position he is in now with the Pels, the team won't win anything.

02 Mar 2019 15:30:42
Yes Bc durant leaving warriors championship team to go to smaller market team can't fill theirs even they were winning. You just coming up with ideas bc its news.

03 Mar 2019 11:43:26
Bazemore, Prince + picks. Prince is already on the block.

03 Mar 2019 11:44:31
Don’t believe reddick is leaving a starting role on a contender making like 15 mill to be the back up to a rookie on a team that’s pretty bad for 5 mill.

03 Mar 2019 11:46:36
While i would find it hilarious AD ends up in Atlanta, Boston and Knicks have better offers available.

03 Mar 2019 11:47:21
Prince is on the trading block already why not him instead of Collins? Seems like a happy medium.

20 Feb 2019 20:51:39
Pick for Wizards '19 Thunder 1st

John Wall injury relief money (save money)

20 Feb 2019 23:43:03
According to Spotrac. com, Wizards only have $2.5 mil left on that exception that expires March 11th. So salaries aren't close.

Also, Thunder cannot trade their 2019 1st rounder until draft day in June.

Additionally, Patterson cannot be traded until he opts in/ July because of his player option for next season.

Sooooooo. Zero chance of happening.

21 Feb 2019 02:37:05
I 100% agree with Fredman because that's exactly what I said. OKC picks for Wizards '19 1st. Isn't every trade a summertime trade on here right now? The John Wall injury money is for next season because the deadline has passed. He will miss enough games for the full injury relief. Who is posting trades for this season right now?

21 Feb 2019 03:42:21
Include Dennis.

21 Feb 2019 08:02:40
Jorga made me do a little homework.

To qualify for a disabled player exception next season, the injured player is "substantially more likely than not to be unable to play" through June 15, 2020. 17 months is a long time for a doctor to say that a player is unable to play basketball to grant this exception.

Additionally, only one replacement player can be signed or traded for using this exception (and they must be on expiring contracts) .

Why doesn't OKC just trade these two + pick to ATL, CLE, PHX or CHI when the new season starts? Much easier to do.

21 Feb 2019 18:19:50
ESPN, the athletic, bleacher report have all given the 18.5-18.6 relief estimated dollar amount.

Plus, all said because an Achilles injury (substantially unlikely to play) the exception will be available right away because it is at least a year. That has Wall starting court work maybe late February-March 2020. Wiz can spend the money, allocate relief later. I'd accept your wager on the Wiz making the playoffs 2020.

You got me on 2 players but Wizards are allowed to if Mahinmi agrees to restructure his final season under that relief waiver, giving the wizards Mahinmi's cap dollars.

Wizards absorbing players for a 1st into their cap is more difficult than for ATL, CLE, PHX, CHI? Why?

All I wanted to know was why you thought it was an illegal trade, and not for after July 1,2019? Did I write something improperly that indicates I'm ignorant of what a trade deadline is? But I got all this, please don't reply, I think I have you figured.
