23 Feb 2019 00:16:37
He is worth 3 first round pick?

23 Feb 2019 00:56:47
No way the bucks do that.

23 Feb 2019 01:18:12
Fultz has negative impact as of right, magic got hoses in fultz deal, why would harris leave philly for orlando.

23 Feb 2019 01:54:37
If Porzingis can get 2 firsts, then yes Lillard is in the 3 first rounder category.

15 Feb 2019 06:42:35

14 Feb 2019 15:52:44
1) Minny -Memphis

Memphis: Wiggins

Minny: Conley

2) Minny- Orlando
Minny: Fournier+ Augsutin
Orlando: Teague+ 1rnd pick Wolves

PF: Saric
SF: Covington

14 Feb 2019 16:49:00
Sorry, Fournier is not worth a lottery pick.

14 Feb 2019 18:12:46
Add chandler and Teague too make it fair.

14 Feb 2019 07:27:09
If Celtics are willing do Irving for Ntilikina and DSJ, they get good value in return and save 25 mil from resigning another max contract. They develop 2 PG behind Rozier. They can keep the remaining core with them. Remember Celtics are playing better without Irving.

That save ny 11 more mil to resign Jordan. NY pays 21 mil towards next yr vs 32mil on a max contract. Also saves NY 7 mil for loosing 2 players who won't ever be starters ahead of Irving.

Best trade for All parties

Pelicans get Ingram Thompson Henson
2019 and 2021 LA
2021 and 2023 DAL
2020 and 2022 NY
Lakers get Knight Moore Love Davis
Cavs get Knox Hart Trier
Knicks get Ball Dellavedova cavs 2019 1st

Cavs dump 73 mil in salary, avoid luxury taxes and get a 2 solid 20yr old future star at SG and SF.

Roster with 60 mil cap flexibilty

Pelicans 😍
Henson and Thompson can share the Davis responsibility for 1 yr as 2 others develop to replace Davis. Ingram 6 1st for Davis almost like Hershall Walker trade.


Lakers keep Kuzma get 2 all stars and 2 shooters on perimeter around Lebron.


Trade Ball Dellavedova to magic for Augustin 10th 35th 43rd


14 Feb 2019 13:07:44
Lol. Ball and Dellavedova get the 10th pick in the draft. Yea, not happening.

Fultz got a FUTURE LATE 1st rounder. Ball is not going to get much more than that. Especially after the Fultz rrade.

14 Feb 2019 16:24:29
Horrible for NOLA Henson sucks and so does Thompson. The picks for LA would almost be very late firsts.

14 Feb 2019 16:50:13
Lakers 2019 lottery. 1 yr thompson Henson until bol and Jaxson take over. Fultz has not shown us anything that he belongs in nba, so arguement about comparison to ball is horrible. Ball and Fultz potential backcourt is interesting future. Name a better pg guard after 10 pick when Garland and Morant are already gone. Both of you loose on your arguement. 6 freakin 1st for any player including jordan is freakin awesome. dacman fredman 🤣.

14 Feb 2019 18:21:04
Much rather have Tatum Rozier and Brown with 3 picks.

14 Feb 2019 19:58:58
Cant include Brown in sign and trade when other people are involved unless the trade happen in January. Davis won't stay and listen to his father, omg dacman. Irving is not staying. Keep who wants to staying boston. Boston will still be good. Just never great. 🤣.

14 Feb 2019 21:00:55
This is Brown’s 3rd year in the league. He has a team option that will get picked up if it already hasn’t.

14 Feb 2019 00:56:58
Boston, plan B


NY: Irving

Indy: G Hayward+ Ntilikina

Boston: (Evans+ Bogdanovic+ C Joseph)+ 2rnd pick NY 2020

boston: Vucevic
Orlando: Horford+ 1rnd pick Clippers

3)Boston- Minnesota
Boston: Saric
Minny:Yabusele+1rnd pick Boston 2019+ 2rnd pick NY 2020+ 2rnd pick Atlanta 2019

Sac pick: Darius Garland
sign: Bogdanovic
resign: T Rozier

C: Vucevic/R williams
PF: Saric/Theis/ Oyeleye
SF: Tatum/ Bogdanovic
SG:J Brown/M Smart/RJ Hunter
PG: T Rozier/ Garland/Wanamaker

14 Feb 2019 01:59:35
The first trade can’t happen.

14 Feb 2019 02:43:43
Why wouldn’t the Knicks just sign him straight up and keep the pick and frank?

14 Feb 2019 05:49:50
The Magic trade is impossible. The deadline has passed and Vucevic is an UFA in the off-season.

13 Feb 2019 19:28:47
Knicks need to be creative to resign Jordan while adding 2 super max

Knox to Grizz for Reddish


Knox and Jackson great forward combo eventually will play PF and center

DSJ to Heat for Langford


Garland might go sooner, heat need a PG, this is fair value.

Ntilikina Trier to Hawks for Paschall-35 Washington-43 M.Howard-46


Hawks could win 40 games next yr with solid depth.

This clear 12 mil to resign DeAndre Jordan 2yr 28mil and Irving and Durant sign 2yr 70 mil (33mil-2019 & 37mil-2020 player opt) before signing rookies contracts


Lotto Draft
Wizards- Little Wall to Pacers for Holiday 23

13 Feb 2019 20:34:02
Why would Memphis do that?

This is just so bad overall.

13 Feb 2019 23:38:00
That draft has so many players going too early.

14 Feb 2019 01:44:53

Maybe Detriot or Pelicans Culver or Johnson instead of Reddish. Knicks need a 3D sg better than Dotson.

14 Feb 2019 01:57:24
So memphis drafts a younger better shooter and trades the wing they needed for years for Knox? Lol.

14 Feb 2019 06:31:01
Fernando, Okpala, Hachimura and Alexander Walker will not be top 10 picks.

14 Feb 2019 07:52:44
Knox is 19 going to be 20 next yr shelfish.

09 Feb 2019 22:10:16
What Donzingis needs are Players arround that can move the ball, defend and hit open Looks insinde and outside! And experience!

I would not go for Leonard or Thompson. Mavs have set their star player(s) - two of them. Not only the Spotlight also the scoring and to get become the go to guy in critical moments is part of it to be able to have the good chemistry.

Midterm Donzingis has 70m cap per year. So also the money should be considered.

God Thing to have Doncic on the rookie contract and Prozingis not such a high cap hit as he will get on money (30m ++).

So the Mavs should trade at the end of june for their player to be able to extend the contract for next season instead of sign FA, what would probably more difficult in view of CAP.

Experience, defense, skills to move and score the ball:

- Rubio, Aminu, Vucevic

- 2nd 2019
- Vucevic (Tradeexeption)
- Rubio (CAP)
- Aminu (Tradeexecption)
- Burke
- Broekhoff, future 2nd

Send Lee with 1y on contract and a 2nd to a team to free up the grid spot.

So with july 1 Mavs have all their player on the roster or at least some (bird) rights ot resign also over the CAP.

Sign Rubio 5y 60m
Sign Vucevic 5y 130m
Sign Prozingis 5y 158m
Sign Aminu (full MLE) 3y 23m

Resign Maxi, (Dirk to travel with the guys and shoot some 3s:), Finney-S, Harris, Barea for the money on the books.

And start to contend:

Vucevic, Powell, Antetokounpo
Prozingis, Kleber, Dirk
Aminu, Finney-S, Jackson
Doncic, Hardaway, Harris
Rubio, Brunson, Barea

Possibly and assumed Rubio, Amniu and Vucevic are happy and willing to sign at Mavs. Would be the oversee starting 5 : )

09 Feb 2019 23:46:40

10 Feb 2019 14:12:38
Soooo can you trade for players on expiring deals like Rubio after the trade deadline?

No, players must be under contract for the following year in order to traded after the playoffs and before the start of the next season/ free agency.

This applies to expiring contracts, upcoming RFAs, and players with team or player options for the next season.

10 Feb 2019 15:21:21
A) donzingis is the worst nickname I’ve ever heard. It’s like a porn super villain mixed with an STD.

B) Vucevic is one of a teams big 3? You want to max out Vucevic? That team will be a failure.

10 Feb 2019 16:10:08
Before the Kings tied up $25 mil of next year salary cap in Harrison Barnes, I was down with the Kings offering Vucevic 3yrs $60 mil.

10 Feb 2019 19:48:00
let’s try a different trade, every trade you post has Vucevic going to the Mavs.

10 Feb 2019 20:51:37
Sloth and unicorn 🤣🤣.

11 Feb 2019 00:33:34
Donzingis .

Worst ever? NO! Do you think:

Procic would be better? ;)

Don-Zingis maybe?
Lukaps? . alle oops =)

BTW the only smart guy here in is Fredman. You can trade players end of june . but as he told us, only with a contract for next year, so Mavs have to go with FA to accomplish my plan. If you guys think Vucevic could be signed by 20m per year . I take him.

To have still a 30 of june trade, maybe Jackson for Crowder? Think Crowder would be the most perfect fit to Lukaps :=) )

11 Feb 2019 04:05:50
You are going to get a lot of disagree just becsuse you called me smart.

08 Feb 2019 22:13:25
Robin Lopez would propably join Mavs after buyout in Chicago.

Since the Mavs have their two francise players I do not see a "big fish" go to Dallas and there is NY, LA, Boston with heagy assets looking for ...

So the Mavs will use their CAP and the amazing Tradeexception to trade for PG and C end of june to get the bird rights and to resign them.

At PG Mavs will go for Walker, Rubio or I would like a offer for Chris Dunn. He can still not run the show in Chicago but would be a great sidekick to Doncie SG, he can play, score and defend!

- Burke, 2x2nd
- Dunn

The Center will probably be Vucevic or Orland want to keep him in this case Bamba, but I think they will go with the young guy.

- 2nd
- Vucevic

Maybe there is a possibility to go for Middleton? If not go with Hardaway, Finney-Smith

Vucevic, Powell
Prozingis, Kleber
Finney-Smith, Hardaway
Doncic, Lee
Dunn, Brunson

Maybe Detroit wants to send out Drummond for a future 1st? I like the kid and the power of presence in the middle, would be a younger case than Vucevic, but I think Vucevic fits better as a shooter that can still heavy rebound.

09 Feb 2019 00:17:53
Lopez will go to Raps or GSW. Same for Jordan. He won't want to be in NY, unless they are promising to pay him well next season.

09 Feb 2019 02:06:39
DJ seems pretty happy in NY jorga, don’t think he wants out. Knicks also like having him around as a mentor for Robinson, and he’s been more than willing to do it.

09 Feb 2019 04:03:03
Having two franchise players on rookie contracts should abtract free agents to join them. Dallas need a wing like Leonard and a center like cousins. Doncic lee Leonard zinger cousins with hardway 6th man.

09 Feb 2019 04:21:22
Porzingis will not be on his rookie deal.

09 Feb 2019 04:55:43
He accepted his qualifier for next yr.

09 Feb 2019 13:06:02
No he hasn’t shizzee, he said he is considering it.

09 Feb 2019 18:38:20
Unicorn fame getting his head smh.

09 Feb 2019 23:58:50
Triangle, I heard NY liked the mentor idea, but I haven't heard from D. J. 28 days until waiving is off the table, and I don't count a lot of contenders with starting roles available. It's the long period in between where the rubber hits the road. Injury could change things quickly on a contender.

10 Feb 2019 05:56:02
A 12 mil cap hold and a second year rookie with superstar potential making 7 mil is what you could build your team around easily.

10 Feb 2019 14:14:45
Also, just read that you cannot trade for players with expiring deals like vucevic between the trade deadline and the start of the new season/ free agency.

07 Feb 2019 19:48:48
Since Gasol is heading to Toronto, there are no improvement for Charlotte. So Maybe on the Walker request of Mavs very late? : )
As well as Orlando when Mavs will take on Mozgov?

So may it possible to see the most curious trade ever?

When Mavs trade only low 13m money for 42m in return? Mavs have 13,5m cap and a 21m Exception. Would be a shame to send out Brunson but look at this:

- Vucevic, Walker, Mozgov

- Brunson, Randolph, 12m, future 1st Mavs (up to 4 pick are allowed)

- Byombo, 2x2nd Mavs

The trade could also happen after the draft day before Jun. 30 when neither Walker nor Vucevic would agree to resign. But both teams would have some more wins an hence lower picks.

07 Feb 2019 20:54:59
Your offer is horrible.

07 Feb 2019 23:06:54

07 Feb 2019 14:03:41
The Barnes trade is still in make so let`s see if the Mavs can make the maximum move! They are for sure interested in Walker and Vucevic.

Orlando should tank. So help them. : ) and they may want CAP in the summer. And Orlando would propably lose Vucevic in 4 month for nothing.

Hornets are in the middle of nothing with less flexibility. Walker told, he want to win. So Mavs could offer them young talent instead of the risk to lose Walker in 4 month for nothing.

- Barnes
- Mozgov, Vucevic, Walker
- Mejri, Broekhoff, future 2nd Mavs
- Brunson, Jackson, Randoph, future 1st Mavs and 2nd 2019

07 Feb 2019 15:33:15
i don't think Dallas can trade another first round pick
Atlanta owns the 2019 pick, and NY owns the 2021 and 2023 picks.

07 Feb 2019 15:46:01
Dallas and Cuban are stuck with players who can't defend. Only Powell and Lee remains who can defend decently.

07 Feb 2019 16:37:06
So there is time for the Kings to back out of this? Would rather let Randolph expire and make offers to Bogdanovich (indy) / Ariza as well as Vucevic than take on Barnes and his future cap when he opts in for next year.

07 Feb 2019 16:43:34
Shizzee aren’t you forgetting your boy, Porzingis.

07 Feb 2019 18:08:45
Fredman kings did great. I think if they could got porter it would been better. I don't think the kings can sign a wing better then Barnes in free agency.

07 Feb 2019 22:37:04
Bojan/ Ariza are reported as unavailable by their teams.

07 Feb 2019 22:38:37
Zinger great shot blocker when on the floor, move him away from the basket he was done AKA manute bol.

07 Feb 2019 06:55:33
Okc and Orlando

Okc get- Terrence Ross and Wes iwundu
and second round pick Orlando

Orlando get- Terrence Ferguson and Andre Roberson

Or if they don't like Roberson throw in Alex Abrines or Diallo or second round 2020 picks

Orlando don't need to make playoffs anyway just to lose out the first round.

07 Feb 2019 00:26:37

Magic get Markelle Fultz, Justin Patton, Furkan Korkmaz, all four 2nd round picks this year

Sixers get Terrence Ross, Jonathan Simmons, Isaiah Briscoe

Magic bet on Fultz, and get a lot of picks that could be flipped to get back into the 1st round
Sixers fill out their bench for title run with some insurance in getting another year out of Simmons if they choose

06 Feb 2019 15:56:05
Cavs Trade:
Love, Burks
Bamba, Brandon Knight, KCP, Lance

Houston Trades:
Knight, 2019 1st

Lakers trade:
Lonzo, KCP, Lance
Love, Houston 2019 1st

Orlando trades:

06 Feb 2019 18:13:22
You will need a 1st to move Love. Lonzo for Bamba only 2 teams should be involved.

06 Feb 2019 19:15:57
Bamba for ball usnt happening.

06 Feb 2019 22:22:43
If it’s not a big man. Orlando doesn’t want him.

06 Feb 2019 22:37:04
They’d be getting a first for Burks from Houston. This sends it straight to LA in one deal.

05 Feb 2019 09:43:48
Let's say before the deadline Lebron tells Magic if they don't get Davis he wants to be traded ...
Lebron and Irving seem to be all buddy buddy now so why not trade James to the Celtics

Tatum , Williams ,Hayward , 2019 Celtics 1st , 2019 Kings 1st

05 Feb 2019 10:08:00
Hahsha. funniest thing I've heard. First, James won't. He made such an ordeal about going to LA for his family and business opportunities.
2nd, no way the Celtics give up so many assets for the 35 year old King.

05 Feb 2019 13:34:18
Bron is not leaving LA, period. His move there was for more than basketball, and that should be evident by watching him give up one of his few remaining prime years with this roster while preaching patience.

05 Feb 2019 13:43:18
You only say that bc he would never go. joe, Celtics are 1 yr away from loosing irving and not getting Davis all bc the Celtics live in the past . So desperate to get the next white hope, overpay hayward has ruin their cap.

05 Feb 2019 14:59:23
Shizzee, I'm sure your team has a few bad contracts. Everyone does. Secondly, July is only 5 months from now. And not only won'tbe LOSING Irving, Davis will bea Celtic.
New Orleans wants Tatum and they will get him.
Once Irving knows that Davis 8s coming to Boston, he will be resigning. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

05 Feb 2019 16:50:32
I don’t understand how Hayward was such a horrible contract at the time? He was an all star. It’s not like the payed a fringe starter max money.

Also, a Knicks fan talking about living in the past?!? The Celtics were in the conference finals last year. They’re living on current and future success. The Knicks haven’t been good in.25 years? They’re somehow the “Mecca of basketball” still when they haven’t had a championship in 46 years. How are they signing any relevant free agents with 0 talent and one of the worst owners in pro sports?

05 Feb 2019 17:10:14
Typical New York fan. His team cannot do wrong. The problem is, the Knicks can't do anything right.
The Knicks haven't done anything right since the early 70's. Unless you want to count the Bernard King era.
As far as Hayward, if he had signed with the Knicks, it would be a totally different story with them.

05 Feb 2019 18:02:39
Knicks - 10-42.

05 Feb 2019 18:43:22
Knicks have an upcoming opportunity. The problem is that the Knicks recently have made poor choices when provided oppournities. There is nothing to suggest that trend will change.

05 Feb 2019 18:57:03
Celtics were in ecf last year. But Lakers and knocks think AD is going there. Who lives in the past?

05 Feb 2019 19:34:47
Fredman, the KP trade probably signals that they’re going to make another bad decision. Rose looks worthy of a Knicks max right now and Wall is on the trade block. A big 3 of Cousins, Rose and Wall is probably coming to MSG in a few months.

05 Feb 2019 20:33:13
Rkenne lmao we ny wants kevin love.

05 Feb 2019 20:43:36
Bottomline is this as you said it knicks haven't won in 47 years. Here is the Double standard. If they win in ny, there legacy would make them legendary more so than winning on team like the celtics and Lakers who franchise already are already winners. Davis durant irving are all about there legacy. Lebron had other attention beside winning. To win in ny despite having the most hated sports owner, is ultimate fu to Dolan. These can guys will be treated like magic bird pierce.

05 Feb 2019 20:32:18
Listen to AD father, AD picked the 4 location he would resign not 1clocation was boston and he would not go accept trade without irving, Listen to Irving, Irving is 1 and done, only a championship will keep him there, Celtics have not shown they are championship team this yr. Hayward signing, knicks been there with Allen Houston 5yr 100mil. You overpaid Hayward and Horford to go there. Irving did not choose Boston. Listen to Mark Stein.

Pelicans waiting on Who wins lotto. Bulls Cavs knicks or Suns. Williamson to bulls or knicks can make a difference to land Davis. Its doesn't matter how horrible the Knicks have been. Knicks gm and Durant have a connection 10 yrs. Irving is like Marbury and Melo always choose knicks over any team if there was slight chance of winning in ny. 2nd opt lebron and Lakers. 10-42 that is right, tanking. Like what you did get brown and tatum. Only tanking doesn't matter this yr like before. as long as you finish bottom 4 you equal chance.

05 Feb 2019 21:48:46
So refresh me memory. Name the last "Quality" Free Agent signing done by NY and how long ago was that signing.

06 Feb 2019 12:32:36
First, Ainge doesn't care about what AD's father says. He probably thinks he can change his mind once he gets to Boston.
Who cares who wins the lotto. None of the teams have what it will take to land Davis.

Second, Irving is in his 2nd season in Boston. Even if they don't win a title this year, he will sign the extension if he knows that AD is coming. and he us.
Which will leave the Knicks in the basement, where they belong
Btw. the Celtics got Brown, Rozier and Tatum via the Garnet and Pierce fleecing of the Nets. Not by tanking. Wow. you don't even know that? Lmao.

05 Feb 2019 05:50:39
Lakers get Davis and Ross

Magic get Ball

Kings get Hill and Lakers 2019 1st

NO gets KCP, Kuzma, Ingram, Koufus, Hart, Wagner/ Zubac, OKC 2020 1st (from Orl) and Lakers 2021 1st, Minnesota 2019 2nd (from Sac), 2020 Lakers 2nd

Just an addition to the much discussed Lakers-Pelicans deal whereby Ball gets moved to Orlando and Hill is salary dumped on the Kings.

05 Feb 2019 04:33:03
Hawks get: Timofey Mozgov and a 2020 1st round pick top 20 protected (via Thunder)

Magic get: Jeremy Lin

Hawks take on an extra years salary for the pick
Magic get a PG to help a push into the playoffs and gain salary relief for the summer to go after a long term PG option in FA.

05 Feb 2019 05:06:43
Always thought Lin for Ross + 2nd rounder was a no brainer trade deadline deal.

05 Feb 2019 03:36:04
Por Orlando

Portland gets
-Aaron Gordon
-evan fournier

Orlando gets
-evan Turner
2019 lotto protected first

Orlando gets a better top end talent and a back court of cj and Turner that can actually be competitive in the east. Portland gets a better overall cast and better group around Lillard

05 Feb 2019 04:07:55
How do you give up by far the best player in a deal and a 1st? Portland says a quick no.

05 Feb 2019 04:46:35
To help offset the Turner contract, and Portland doesn't need more youth.

05 Feb 2019 02:38:37
If Irving Lebron Davis join forces, knicks moves alters

Deadline moves
Chandler Smith for Mathews
Vonleh Thomas for Johnson Muscala 43 55

Pelicans get DSJ Ntilikina
Knicks get Ball

Ball prefers NY over NO

Magic get 2020 ny 1st 2021 dal 1st 2022 by 1st 2023 1st
Knicks get Bamba

Orlando know knicks are overpaying here

Durant and Leonard 2yr 65 mil
Jordan 5yr 45mil mle


This means raptors never made finals. Both leonard and Durant don't want to be anywhere near Lebron.

05 Feb 2019 18:05:49
Knicks aren’t giving up 4 first for anyone not named Anthony Davis!
Why would they give up all 4 first rd picks?

05 Feb 2019 18:39:00
So the Knicks give up 4 first, Frenchy and Dsj? Not happening.

04 Feb 2019 22:53:18
Knicks - Magic

Knicks gets:
2020 1st Thunder (Top 20 protected)

Magic gets:

04 Feb 2019 23:39:04
You don't get a first for 30 games of 2 guts about to be free agents from tanking teams.

05 Feb 2019 02:42:42
Bamba for Vonleh Mudiay 4 1st.

04 Feb 2019 02:57:56
Rockets get: Terrence Ross and Jerian Grant

Magic get: Brandon Knight and a 2020 1st round pick (lottery protected)

04 Feb 2019 04:33:45

04 Feb 2019 06:17:07
2020 pick? Try a 2019 just to get the conversation started.
