suns should trade small forward tj warren and pf m chriss in sign and trade to magic for pf arron gordon

20 Jun 2018 19:59:16
It's good but it sounds like a Arizona U fan trade more than a make suns better. Gordon will be expensive.

20 Jun 2018 20:21:41
Gordon could be the next " amare stoudmire " for the suns making all those awesome slam dunks .

20 Jun 2018 05:45:08
Hawks trade - Bembry
Nuggets trade - Faried and 14th

Hawks trade - Schredor 19 & 30
Magic trade - 6th and Biyombo

Hawks draft Bamba, Young, and Walker


20 Jun 2018 13:21:31
No thanks if I’m the magic.

18 Jun 2018 16:08:03
Magic: Biyombo, 6

Griz: Parsons, 4

18 Jun 2018 16:17:23
The Griz seem to want something that will help them now. I don't think they'll move back just to save a little money.

18 Jun 2018 17:10:29
Why would the Griz say they would like to package parsons and 4 if it wasn't to save a little money? Nearly 10 mil a season and still getting a 6 pick. Doubt magic would do it.

18 Jun 2018 17:51:16
Because they want to package the two together for a vet that can help Gasol and Conley. I can't imagine either team does this. They could get a meaningful vet with a top 5 pick, even including Parsons bad contract.

18 Jun 2018 18:02:59
someone would have to fall to 4 on draft night orlando loves for this to happen (luka, jackson) and its still long shot because it would put them over the cap if they give gordon a max.

18 Jun 2018 19:32:49
@bmiller if by vet you mean 25-27 year old.

18 Jun 2018 22:33:26
Yeah, someone like McCollum or Derozan. Those feel like realistic and logical targets, especially if Toronto or Portland decide to break up their backcourts.

18 Jun 2018 23:23:07
@bmiller story today claims Griz want to stay in lottery while dealing pick and parsons. Clips maybe? Possibly Nuggets but that is a stretch given their cap situation. Hornets could be full of surprises. Maybe a MKG or williams and 11 for parsons and 4.

18 Jun 2018 11:54:14

ORL: 4th pick + C.Parsons

MEM: 35th pick + J.Simmons + N.Vucevic

18 Jun 2018 15:28:00
Memphis already has M Gasol, so they have no intrest in receiving a similar (less talented) center.

15 Jun 2018 03:48:33

Hawks get #4, Faried, Parsons

Grizzlies get #14, #19, Bazemore

Nuggets get Simmons

Magic get Schroder

15 Jun 2018 14:43:33
I think grizz could get more.

19 Jun 2018 18:57:46
Nah man.

14 Jun 2018 22:51:57
Hawks draft night action

Trade number 1:
Hawks get Chandler Parsons, 4th pick
Grizzlies get Kent Bazemore, DeAndre Bembry, 19th and 34th pick

Trade number 2:
Hawks get Terrence Ross, Jerrryd Bayless, 26th and 35th pick
Magic get Dennis Schroeder
76ers get Malcolm Delaney

Hawks end up with picks

3-Jaren Jackson Jr
4-Trae Young
26- Gary Trent Jr
30-Grayson Allen
35- Keita Bates Diop

Hawks lineup
PG: Young, Baylees, Taylor
SG: Trent Jr, Allen, Dorsey
SF: Prince, Ross, Parsons
PF: Collins, Bates Diop, Muscala
C: Jackson Jr, Dedmon, Plumlee.

15 Jun 2018 00:42:20
Grizz aren't giving up the 4 just to trade bad contracts and get a few trinkets.

15 Jun 2018 00:55:28
Grizzlies say no.

14 Jun 2018 22:08:41
I want to take a look at the 76er's current situation and how to get past the Celtics to the finals.

Magic Receive Jarryd Bayless and #26 OVR 2018 draft pick.

76ers receive #41 OVR 2018 draft pick.

Thinking: Sixers are able to unload 8.576 million from their salary cap situation to be able to accommodate a max contract. Meanwhile the Magic are able to add a shooter that is still only 29. He's expensive for this year, but only has one year on his contract. He's better than Fournier and only half the price. In return for the extra salary, they're moving up 15 spots in the draft.

Cavaliers Receive Picks 10, 38, and 41
76ers Receive Pick 8

Thinking: Cavaliers begin to realize Dan Gilbert doesn't have the best relations with LBJ. It seems like a low ball offer, but mind yourself that the Cavs and Sixers are looking for two separate Archetypes. The Cavs should not worry about the Sixers or Knicks taking their big man they have their eyes on (with Porzingis and Embiid). In return for dropping two spots, they're put back into round 2 with options for cheap role players. **If this trade can't be completed than that's ok. I was trying to get the Sixers into the top 7 for Doncic, MPJ, Bamba, or Trae Young.**

Free Agency: ~39.5 million
Picking Up Team Options on McConnell and Holmes (1.6 mil each)

Plan A: Lebron James: I'd throw money at LBJ in hopes he'd teach the team how to win and perform in crunch time. The shortcoming of the Sixers was having a player they could turn to in the last 5 minutes in the game to take over. The weakest part of the team was the final quarter and this would work to solve it.

Plan B: Avery Bradley and Aaron Gordon: With around 36 million dollars to play with, I'd first throw money towards Avery Bradley. I think he's a much better fit. I'd be perfectly fine throwing 18-22 million towards Avery. He is the elite perimeter defender that they can use to put on the opposing guards on the Celtics, Warriors, and Rockets. He's a HUGE upgrade over JJ Reddick for this reason. Notice the athletic/strong guards dictated the playoff series with Boston. My other move would be trying to pry away Aaron Gordon or Julius Randle (if you can't pry them away, at least make the Lakers and Magic pay a pretty penny). That's the other element I think the Sixers are missing. Aaron Gordon can slide right in with Dario as backup power forward. I'd be willing to throw the remaining money at him. If I can't come up with the cap space to sign Aaron, I'd flirt the market for the package of Covington and the #8 pick (looking to move into 3-6 range).

Possible Starting Line Up:
PG: Markelle Fultz
SG: Avery Bradley
SF: Ben Simmons/Robert Covington
PF: Ben Simmons/Dario Saric
C: Joel Embiid

6th Man: Aaron Gordon
7th Man: TJ McConnell

My final analysis is that this team would have the shooting in Markelle and Avery to offset the inside game of Embiid and Simmons. The defense would be versatile with Bradley, Covington, Simmons, and Embiid. The height and athleticism on the inside wouldn't be changing much, so rebounding is still near the top of the NBA (Aaron Gordon doesn't hurt either).

Let me know what you guys think (if you like it I might try to fix another team)!

15 Jun 2018 00:50:12
Okay a few things
1. Aaron Gordon would start
2. Avery Bradley is nowhere near worth 18-22 million a year! If it’s a 1yr 15m deal then that would be okay. But if it’s a multi-year deal, it should be about 3yr 30m.

15 Jun 2018 00:56:50
You max off gordon to bench him? Lol.

15 Jun 2018 03:34:06
My philosophy is to have him lead the second team. You can experiment with putting him in the first lineup, but medically I didn't want to push him. Let him get comfortable (and use that Philly medical system) to ensure he's healthy long term.

Also, talking contracts, I would be looking to front load them. Avery Bradley in my eyes is worth every penny of 18 million. See if he'd bite for a contract where we take half his total salary this year and spread the rest over the next two years for flexibility when resigning Simmons and Fultz.

14 Jun 2018 22:02:29
Rumor has it the Grizz are looking to package and move Chandler Parsons and the 4th pick. Who'd be a good trade partner?

Suns have several pieces and the 16th pick. They could absorb him and send out less. That'd give the Suns a shot at landing both Ayton and Doncic (the next Stoudemire and Nash?).

I also like the idea of the Thunder. It'd be a swap of bad deals. Melo could fit well as he needs great team defense around him and Memphis needs scoring. Thunder are low on assets but they could offer to take another contract back of Memphis's choice and give them Ferguson and their two second rounders in this draft. Not enough probably but worth a thought? Presti often pulls off magic trades.

Trade 1->
Memphis gets Chriss, Bender, Dudley, pick 16
Phoenix gets Chandler Parsons, pick 4

Trade 2->
Memphis gets Melo, Ferguson, 2 seconds
OKC gets Chandler Parsons, Ben McLemore, pick 4

15 Jun 2018 00:51:14
I actually really like the 2nd trade idea. Only problem is if Memphis is willing to take Melo AND if Melo is willing to waive his no trade clause to go to Memphis.

15 Jun 2018 00:57:33
Toronto gets puck/ chandler for derozan.

15 Jun 2018 04:31:56
I like the deal for okc I think they might need to give up a bit more like Patterson or something but it looks good. I think melo would accept just bc Memphis would buy him out and he could go to Houston, golden state, or who ever lebron is on and chances are melo wouldn’t get all 28 million but Memphis still gets out of parsons deal for the long term.

14 Jun 2018 21:55:49
Suns and Grizzlies

Grizzlies receive:
Williams (non-guranteed)
Milwaukee Pick
Future Suns top 7 protected through 2021

Suns receive

Grizz can use the three first rounders to get Gordon from Orlando and can still resign Evans.


Bench: Daniels, Reed, Green, MLE player 31st pick.

Phoenix can get Doncic or Young in addition to Ayton.

15 Jun 2018 00:58:17
How does three pucks get them gordon?

14 Jun 2018 16:32:29

Sign LeBron James
Sign Chris Paul
Sign Dwayne Wade (Veteran Exception)
Trade for Carmelo Anthony (OKC, Miami, and LA Lakers) has to work out a deal.

Do this for one Year sake -- this would be the only way that these four friends to play together.

Make it work and the Lakers will gain 26 Million next year additional Cap Space . it's a deal that Magic Johnson must do.

According to the NBA Trade Machine it's a possibility that this can happen - Only Lakers, Thunder, and the Heat can make it happen.

This way the Thunder can sign Paul George and another free agent next year.

14 Jun 2018 17:04:23
OKC is capped out even if they can dump Melo for nothing. It's hard to imagine the Lakers getting Lebron and not George. I also don't see the banana boat crew ever getting together. Wade is about shot, Melo is straight bad, Paul is in a good place, and Lebron wants championships more than friends.

14 Jun 2018 22:53:51
Georgeis staying in okc.

14 Jun 2018 23:26:25
Dont want paul on the lakers.

14 Jun 2018 16:00:19
Clippers - Knicks

Clippers gets:
9th pick
2019 2nd rd pick (Cavs, Magic or Rockets)
2020 2nd rd pick (Hornets)

Knicks gets:
12th pick (Pistons)
13th pick

14 Jun 2018 18:46:07
The Clippers are not trading 2 lottery picks to move up 3 spots. It's pointless.

13 Jun 2018 20:29:07
Knicks:Noah, burke

Magic: Biyombo

13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
MY MOCK DRAFT - Lottery Teams

1. PHX - Deandre Ayton
2. SAC - Mohammed Bamba
3. ATL - Trae Young
4. MEM - Michael Porter
5. DAL - Marvin Bagley
6. ORL - Collin Sexton
7. CHI - Luka Doncic
8. CLE - Jaren Jackson Jr.
9. NYK - Mikal Bridges
10. PHI - Zhaire Smith
11. CHA - Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
12. LAC - Miles Bridges
13. LAC - Wendell Carter
14. DEN - Kevin Knox
15. WAS - Robert Williams

13 Jun 2018 12:48:40
No way Doncic falls to number 7.

13 Jun 2018 12:49:34
And JJJ to number 8.

13 Jun 2018 13:06:31
Kings won't draft bamba, they already have someone very similar.

13 Jun 2018 13:12:53
With Doncic unwillingness to work out for teams, he could fall a bit, but I don’t see Sexton being drafted before him.

Jackson seems to be rising, not falling in the draft, he won’t last that long.

13 Jun 2018 13:45:45
my thoughts are Bamba could be seen as "raw" generational talent to some, and who's similar WCS? No way

Magic need a PG bad so that's why Sexton, most drafts have them getting Trae but Hawks seem to be high on him

Doncic i couldn't find a right fit, i think he's the 2nd most NBA ready player.

Where do you see JJJ going TBH I don't know too much about him

13 Jun 2018 15:03:36
I think #1 Ayton, #2 JJJ, #3 Bamba, #4 Bagley, #5 Porter, #6 Doncic


#1 Ayton, #2 JJJ, #3 Doncic, #4 Bagley, #5 Bamba, #6 Porter

Doncic is the 2nd most NBA ready player, and can play 1-4 but may slip because he can't workout for NBa teams because he is still in playoffs. But he won't slip past 6 at most.

13 Jun 2018 16:12:24
I would say Doncic is too low, and Sexton is a bit too high, but he really is a wild card. I could see JJJ going around 8 mostly because of the talent level of the people ahead of him. On talent, it's a pretty solid lottery this season. If Doncic starts to slip like that fit won't matter though. Someone will trade up to get him.

13 Jun 2018 15:50:24
I love Jackson. He's an elite defender that can switch on tonalmost anyone without it being a big mismatch. He can do it all on that end. Think Horford, Green or Millsap on that's end. I get the Bamba hype, but If I had to put money on which one willl be the better defender I go JJJ. He's an elite shot blocker and far more versatile wing defender. On offense, he didn't put up huge numbers, but the guy is a great athlete, he can run the floor, he can finish, and he has legitimate 3 point range. He's more of a project on that end, but he can come in day one and be a great role player next to a ball dominant guy that grows in to a great offensive player. I can't see him faking farther than 5 and I think letting him slip past 3 would be a bad idea.

13 Jun 2018 16:36:10
Soxfan, I'd be giddy if Jackson fell to the Cavs. The guy has the chance to be the best bigman in this draft. He's going to be an absolute monster on the defensive end. He's an elite shot blocker that can lock guys down on the perimeter. Plus, he can come in and be a good role player on offense. He's a better shooter than any of the other bigs at the top of this draft. He's also a good finisher. You can plug him in on any playoff team and he can help them from day 1. Honestly, he's the perfect big for Boston to move up and get. He reminds me a lot of Horford.

13 Jun 2018 19:19:52
if luka somehow makes it past memphis, dallas will trade the pick, but memphis could trade out too. porter and young before bagley is absurd. same goes for jackson 8th, if he hits 5th, dallas should be taking calls.

19 Jun 2018 16:56:10
No way the Mavs let Doncic get passed them.

12 Jun 2018 05:31:00

Trade Biyombo to any team for future 2 round pick
Now I think that fair trade

12 Jun 2018 13:50:13
As said on every one of your trades, you can’t sign and trade 5 guys in a trade. It’s just too much. Try breaking it apart into many smaller trades. 4 team, 20 player trades are just simply impossible.

11 Jun 2018 05:56:45
Magic - Lakers
6th pick
Ingram , Zubac ,47th pick
Lakers draft Bamba

Kings - Lakers
Luol Deng , 25th pick , 2019 2nd
ZacH Randolph

Sign George 3 yrs 100mil
Sign Lebron 4yrs 120mil
Sign Tony Parker 2yrs 8mil
Sign Dwayne Dedmon 3yrs 21mil
Sign Marco Bellineli 1yr 5mil

Ball , Parker , Elis
Hart , Belleneli
George , Kuzma
James , Randolph ,
Bamba , Dedmon , Bryant

11 Jun 2018 06:14:40
Magic gighle then hang up.

11 Jun 2018 07:15:31
Magic would consider that. Ingram has star potential, Zubac is still young. He can ball as well. Why is it like they have no value? Shiller?

11 Jun 2018 08:34:50
#2 pick and #47 pick for a #6 pick, makes sense :ROFL.

11 Jun 2018 13:26:25
Ingram has less value than sixth pick. Magic have three centers already. One is young and the future if they can get rid of the other two.

11 Jun 2018 16:25:29
Ingram isn't the #2 pick any more than Evan Turner is. Don't get attached to where they were drafted and look at the player. He's been in the NBA for 2 years, and he's a nice player, but I don't really see all star potential in him. I'd take a top 6 pick this year over him without much thought.

13 Jun 2018 22:39:52
Usa i gram potential is less tofay than the sixth pick. Magic nedx a PG not a small forward that is maybe good.

10 Jun 2018 21:23:43
Boston/New Orleans/Orlando

Boston: AD

New Orleans: Brown, Simmons, Vucevic, Orlando #1 2019, Sac #1 2019

Orlando: Boston #1 2018, Memphis #1 2019, Rozier, Horford

Boston gets the star C they desperately need finally cashing in on some picks, while keeping most of their talented roster.

New Orleans gets 3 good players to build around and 2 pretty high picks next year.

Orlando gets their PG of the future, a good small ball C, and some extra picks.

10 Jun 2018 22:08:20
Not enough to the Pels.

10 Jun 2018 23:53:33
Triangle: Pels get 3 young players, all with good upside and 2 high draft picks next year. How is that not enough?

10 Jun 2018 23:54:32
Boston is not going to give up three starters, a lottery pick and another No. 1 for any single player, including Davis.

11 Jun 2018 15:44:19
It's really funny howe obssessed Cletics fans are with AD trade proposals. Its laughable to be honest.

10 Jun 2018 15:12:39

MIN gets:

- DeMar DeRozan
- Wesley Matthews
- Reggie Jackson

TOR gets:

- Andrew Wiggins
- Gorgui Dieng
- MIN 2018 1st round pick (#20)
- Pistons 2nd round pick (#43)

DAL gets:

- Cole Aldrich
- Jon Leuer
- MIN 2019 1st round pick (Top 10 protected)
- Jonathan Simmons
- D. J. Augustin

DET gets:

- Kyle Lowry

ORL gets:

- Jeff Teague

MIN does this because.

- they get the best player in the trade. DeRozan and Butler automatically become one of the best wing duos in the league. Reggie Jackson is a solid point guard - hust like Jeff Teague. Plus, Wesley Matthews is a good veteran and solid back up wing. Also, getting rid of Andrew Wiggins, who was causing problems with Jimmy Butler and Thibs, will be nice as well.

PG: R. Jackson-D. Rose-T. Jones
SG: J. Butler-W. Matthews
SF: D. DeRozan-FA
PF: T. Gibson-FA
C: K. Anthony-Towns-J. Patton

TOR does this because.

- they are officially in rebuild mode. Getting swept by the LeBron's - I mean Cavs - should make it obvious that it is ime to rebuild. They should get rid of Kyle Lowry before he is considered a bad contract. While losing their franchise player, DeMar DeRozan, will hurt, TOR does get two picks and Andrew Wiggins - who still has a lot of potential.

Potential Starting lineup:

To be decided. with more trades

DAL does this because.

- they gain a pick. While they do pick up a bunch of expensive contracts, a pick for the tanking Mavericks should always make Mark Cuban happy.

Potential Starting lineup:

It does not matter

DET does this because.

- they have to go all in. Now with Blake Griffin's contract, the Pistons have to invest all they have in the present. Adding Kyle Lowry gives the Pistons another star and another shot at making it to the playoffs.

PG: K. Lowry-Ish Smith
SG: L. Kennard-L. Galloway
SF:S. Johnson-R. Bullock
PF:B. Griffin-H. Ellenson
C: A. Drummond-FA

ORL does this because.

- they actually have a point guard who can run an offense. Since Jameer Nelson, the Magic have never had decent point guard play. With Jeff Teague, Steve Clifford gets a veteran to run his offense.

10 Jun 2018 15:18:54
Minnesota says no.

10 Jun 2018 16:04:06
Toronto trades two all stars for a younger more expensive worse version of derozan, a average big ( they don't need) and two weak picks?

10 Jun 2018 20:16:25
The Pistons trade two bad contracts and get Lowry?

10 Jun 2018 22:19:13
why would minnesota say no?

11 Jun 2018 02:12:05
swapping wiggins for derozan does do anything to make KAT happier about his role on offense, he should be their first priority.

11 Jun 2018 14:53:59
Raptors say no. They give up two allstars for a weak/ expensive shooter, back up center ( which they font need) and a low pick?

11 Jun 2018 18:50:17
Toronto is not giving up Derozan for that, especially when you throw in Lowry. Both those guys have reasonable contracts, they can do better. I will agree that they might explore rebuild mode, but will wait on what Lebron does. If he leaves the East, they stay in tact. Also, like how you stated the mavericks line-up. funny.

09 Jun 2018 14:07:46

Hawks get #6, #14, Faried
If reports are true thy Hawks want Trae Young, they should trade down and draft him at 6 while adding more pieces. They get rid of Schroder's contract and draft their pg of the future in Young.

Magic get #3, Schroder
Move up to draft Donic/Bagley and take a chance on a new point guard that has a lot of offensive talent.

Nuggets get #35, Jonathan Simmons
Nuggets get rid of Faried's awful contract and add a solid wing option on a good contract.

Awful for the Hawks. Schroder isn't a player they'll pay to move.

I like it.

Great. I love it. The whole idea makes it fair for all the teams and everything turns out good in the end and the nuggets finally get rid of faried.

Magic - S. Dinwiddie
Nets - K. Faried, 14th Denver
Nuggets - J. Simmons, 35th Brooklyn

Magic - Desperately need a PG. This one's cheap and stuck amongst Lin and Russell in Brooklyn.
Nets - Grab a lottery pick for taking on salary. Good use of cap space.
Nuggets - Get a decent stopgap option at SF (depending on what happens with Chandler). Shed Faried's contract so they can navigate deals for Jokic and Barton.

It's pretty good. The only thing is if the Nuggets are going to give up the 14th, I think they want as little cap space back and Simmons deal is 6.5 mil for 2 more years. I think it's more of a deal for a team with the capspace to just send a later 2nd round pick for Faried and the 14th.

Widdie worth more and a keeper. Trade russell mosgov for Biyombo 5th.

06 Jun 2018 16:45:19
Good deal. Simmons contract has value and even if Chandler opts in Simmons would be the go to sf for nuggets. Not sure if magic are willing to part with their smoking deal they have with simmons. Dinwiddie is solid, takes care of the ball. Opposite of payton.

Jalex, I agree but I did that trade on here already. actually got more Believables than Unbelievables if you can believe that. Cut out the Magic and you get Faried + 14th for Dinwiddie + 40th. I was trying to get a cheap SF to Denver instead of a backup PG here.

2 separate Trades or a 3 way deal

Bulls Send: Robin Lopez and J Holliday (both expiring deals, 13.8 mil and 4.6mil) and the 7th pick

To the Orland Magic for

Evan Fournier (3 years left on deal after 2018, $17 mil) and the 6th pick

2nd Deal.

Bulls send Cam Payne
To the Denver Nuggests
for K. Faried and the 14th pick.

In the first deal, the Magic get to clear out cap space like they are reported to want to by moving Fournier's hefty deal and just get 2 expirings back and drop only 1 pick which might actually be better to address their biggest need.

2nd deal is the rumor that Woj reported:


Picks: (Big 5 go first)
6th: Bulls take M Porter Jr.
7th: Magic take Trae Young (I'm on the high side for him)
14th Bulls take Robert Williams

Bulls get an ideal fit in Porter who since he likes to ball handle will be great on a team without a PG who demands the ball, a perfect front court partner for Lauri who can block, switch onto guards, and can be a rim runner, and a solid 2 guard to replace Levine who will probably get a big offer in restricted FA. I think this would be a great offseason for the Bulls.

Magic say no.

06 Jun 2018 16:26:17
Bcommon man faried has more value than cba payne.

06 Jun 2018 16:51:53
Holiday, Payne, Lopez aren't getting you picks.

06 Jun 2018 19:02:48
Y'all underestimate the power of expiring deals.
