Lakers get Kemba Walker, Vucevic

Hornets get Lonzo Ball, Cavs 1st, Zubac

Magic get: Luol Deng, Hornets 1st (Lottery)

20 Apr 2018 13:11:57
I don't see Hornets giving up Walker and their lottery first for Ball and Cavs first right now. I understand it's an FA for three more years deal on rookie salary that is the most attractive thing for them, but Lonzo struggled through injuries and inconsistencies all season, not sure he's a deal centrepiece yet.

That said, this isn't the worst trade I've seen.

20 Apr 2018 17:03:09
I like this for Charlotte.
There are six or seven really good players in this draft, the night pick is likely going to be a roll player.

K walker is a good player, but Ball has the potentiall to become a top 10 player. So i would take the risk.

20 Apr 2018 17:55:56
yeah giving up lonzo and their lottery pick for lonzo is too much. if they are giving up both they should be able to get off something like marvin williams contract
just take the cha and cavs picks out and give orl something like LA 19 first.

20 Apr 2018 18:32:15
^first “lonzo” should be kemba.

17 Apr 2018 21:24:15

Trades involving Plumlee

Pros Pels receive between 4.5 and 8.2 in cap depending on which second player is put in giving them much needed cap space for boogie or another free agent
Pros Hawks receive draft picks

8) Suns receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Brandon Knight and Jared Dudley with pick 16 or pick 51 and a future 1st round pick

Pros suns receive 11 mill in cap and get rid of an older player out of their time line

17 Apr 2018 22:13:48
I Like the magic trade.

17 Apr 2018 22:28:48
I don't agree with a few of the scenarios but i definitely respect the depth of thought involved

In the scenario with the Pels it just would not work out when Boogie re-signs. It would leave Darius Miller as your only true SF and would not give them the cap room to sign a decent SF in FA. Pels have to continue growth or risk losing AD

Of all the scenarios i see Houston as most likely maybe Memphis second most.

17 Apr 2018 22:54:08
Maybe Minnesota for Dieng?

18 Apr 2018 00:22:09
10) Minnesota receives Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Grogui Deng and Pick 48 and future second due to his contract being one year longer than plumlees

Pros Wolves gain 2-5 mill over the next four years
Pros Hawks gain draft picks.

17 Apr 2018 16:11:10
Magic-Kings


Magic get #7 pick and Zach Randolph
-Draft Trae Young or Collin Sexton


Kings get #5 pick and Bismack Biyombo
-Draft Michael Porter or Marvin Bagley.

17 Apr 2018 19:05:46
if the lottery hold this order, i support the kings moving up, their future is so uninspiring so mpj’s upside is worth the risk. and if the magic want a pg as bad as everyone says, moving down is smart.

17 Apr 2018 10:51:15
Sac & Orl

Sac get 5th pick
Draft: Porter Jr

Orl get 7th pick and another future 1st
Draft: Young

Kings move up to secure Porter Jr as he's mocked going 5th or 6th

Magic get their Pg and a future asset

18 Apr 2018 05:14:53
Bulls taking mpj liking all bulls ig Twitter signed a Chicago agent.

18 Apr 2018 08:40:45
Someoneslife Magic pick is before Bulls hence kings trading up.

19 Apr 2018 00:39:45
Not bulls will have top 3 pick only team silver warned while Memphis sat gasol.

17 Apr 2018 02:07:32
the Magic get Ball and Gasol(buy out) save 7 million now and 23 million next year

The Lakers get Kawhi

The Spurs get Kemba, Vucevic, Fournier, Ingram, and 2 Lakers 2nds

The Hornets get White, Murray, Lauvergne, Zubac, the Spurs 18 1st and the Orlando 19 1st top 10 protected plus they save 6 million

17 Apr 2018 19:27:27
spurs getting way too much, take out ingram. take either murray or the spurs pick from cha too, kemba is expiring thus lower value. honestly the magic just make this overly complicated and i don't see lonzo being available either.

16 Apr 2018 05:20:39
Hornets-Magic


Hornets get #5 pick and Bismack Biyombo

•With Clifford gone, Dwight will likely be gone too as most of his outstanding play this year was due to Clifford and their good relationship. So Charlotte trades him now to maximize his value and move up in the draft.


Magic get Dwight Howard and #11 pick

•Orlando hasn't made the playoffs since D12 was last there. Maybe it's time to bring him back to try to make the playoffs again. If it doesn't work out then it's okay bc he's on an expiring contract and they dumped Biyombo's bad contract while only moving back 6 spots to the late lottery.

16 Apr 2018 19:10:14
The value at 5 is way better then at 11 it would take more to get this to work.

15 Apr 2018 17:14:40

15 Apr 2018 18:13:29
Why would the Bucks want another 6'7" G/ F? Plus taking on Fourniers 17 Mil a yr. contract? I don't thinks Milwaukee would give up a player, Any player, Plus the 17th pick for Fournier, I don't believe any team would. He just isn't worth it.

15 Apr 2018 18:52:38
The Milwaukee deal is not good, but the Clips one is terrible. If Jordan is not re-upped or opts in, Clips are going into rebuild mode. They would not give up pick 12 to get Vucevic. If they do keep Jordan, there is no use for Nik, and 12 will most likely be shopped as part of a package for a star player.

15 Apr 2018 19:43:13
Milwaukee would be wise to send the 17th pick, Henson, Parker, and Dellavedova to the Clippers for Jordan. The Bucks need a Center badly! A defensive, rebounding Center. Jordan fits the bill. Milwaukee has enough scorers, But are 30th in the league in rebounding. Money save by Milwaukee could sign Jordan long term.

15 Apr 2018 04:35:42
Pelicans Offseason

Trade

Pels - Terence Ross SG/ SF, Jonathan Simmons SG/ SF

Magic - Solomon Hill SF/ PF, Cheik Diallo PF/ C, Alexei Ajainca C (Waive), Future Protected 1st

Pels gain depth, magic shorten lineup with high draft pick coming in and gain future pick

Free Agents

Resign DeMarcus Cousins to max
Resign Rajon Rondo 2 yr deal


Lineup

PG - Holiday - Rondo
SG - Moore - Jackson
SF - Simmons - Ross
PF - Davis - Mirotic
C - Cousins - Okefor.

16 Apr 2018 02:50:51
this is pretty realistic. I don't understand why football father just comments horrible and doesn't explain why.

13 Apr 2018 11:52:03
Suns and Magic

Suns get Vucevic and which ever conveys first out of 2019 lottery protected, 2020 top 10 protected or 2021 unprotected Orlando 1st rounder.

Magic get Chandler and 17th pick

Suns do it to save some money get another future pick as they currently have 1st,16th and 17th so they could get a better future pick later on as they can draft Ayton and Gilgeous-Alexander now to complete their core as Booker wants to win now Vucevic also helps with rebounds and shooting as he has a good midrange jumper and he has played with Payton if they resign him.

Magic get a decent rim protector who can help develop their mocked pick Bamba and then add combo guard Simons to fill their need at Pg

13 Apr 2018 09:42:41
Jay Wright plan

Suns get Ntilikina Hardaway
Orlando get Knight
Knicks get Ross Dudley 17 31

Brunson-31st/Burke/Mudiay
Lee/Ross/Dotson
Bridges-9th/Dudley/T.Williams
Spellman-17th/Wagner-37th/Thomas
Porzingis/Noah/Blitadze-42nd

13 Apr 2018 16:18:19
The Knicks aren't trading Frank for 2 late picks and 2 bad contracts. Hardaway is still a good scorer in the NBA as well although he is overpaid. Also the Knicks aren't going to play Porzingis at center. He isn't an elite rebounder yet and is still underweight. After I thought nothing more could be wrong with this scenario, you put Jalen Brunson starting over Trey Burke. Trey Burke has been a beast for the Knicks, pretty much one of their very few bright spots last season. There's no way that a second round rookie is starting over him regardless he won the wooden award. I guess it's cool that Jay Wright will have Brunson and Bridges assuming "Bridges" is Mikal Bridges not Miles Bridges. This trade would make more sense if you fixed the starting lineups and added in the Suns other late pick which I believe is 15 or 16.

13 Apr 2018 18:24:19
Jello how is Dudley a bad contract? He's got 1 year at 10 million. PhD doesn't have the 17th pick. It has to fall between 11-16.

07 Apr 2018 14:28:15
The Bucks get Vucevic, Simmons, a 2nd, and save 6 million dollars

The Magic get Delly, Henson, Maker, and Brogdon

07 Apr 2018 17:17:25
Take out Simmons, and put in Gordon.

07 Apr 2018 18:16:39
Why? Orlando has to take back 2 bad contracts, Vucevic is a really good center and Simmons is a good sg. Maker has been underwhelming and Brogdon has been hurt most of the year. Plus, it opens up money for the Bucks to sign Parker with.

07 Apr 2018 20:16:01
Agreed Brogdan has been hurt, and Maker has not performed as the Bucks thought he would. Milwaukee has 10 current guards, and 6-7 of them are SG's. the 2 contracts aren't that bad comparing them to other contracts for less talented players. I also doubt if Parker is staying around. he's had 2-3 knee surgeries, and wants a Max contract. He was offered 54 Mil. for 3 years and turned it down. Brogdan will be back, he also hasn't been playing well since demoted back to the bench. The same with Snell, Must be in a shooting slump? he plays good defense, but, His shots haven't been going in. I would send Henson, Parker, and Brogdan (Or Dellavedova? ), for Vucevic, and Gordon. The Bucks would have;. Vucevic, Giannis A., Gordon, Middleton, and Bledsoe. Thoughts?

07 Apr 2018 21:01:27
Why would Orlando want to flip Gordon for Parker?

07 Apr 2018 23:44:47
They probably wouldn't. The Bucks have guards. They don't have enough Forwards. I would prefer Gordon over Parker, Gordon has stated before he might want a change of scenery. Parker has also stated he might be looking elsewhere. Plus money. Parker also wants a max contract. Milwaukee offered him 54 Mil. for 3 years. he turned it down. I'm not sure, but Gordon might still be on a rookie contract? again, Its just me and maybe "wishful" thinking?

29 Mar 2018 19:52:50
The Cavs get Biyombo and Fournier

The Magic get Korver, Jr Smith(waive), Clarkson, Zizic, Osman, and the Cavs 2021 1st top 10 protected

29 Mar 2018 22:28:25
Biyombo is a pretty bad deal, and Fournier is no real prize with his injury history and lack of defense. This seems too generous for ORL.

29 Mar 2018 23:06:31
rkeene, Why would Cleveland do it? Especially including their 2021 1st top 10 protected? I can't see it happening.

30 Mar 2018 04:05:39
I like Clarkson more than Fournier, but Hill is staying put for another season, or half for sure. I can see the advantage in Biyombo, and Thompson together. Don't know that the pick would be necessary, but I can see dumping all those guys, and salary costing something. ORL would likely do this I think because they aren't in love with either of these 2. Clarkson would be greatly appreciated in ORL too. Ross/ Simmons can hold down the fort without Founier. Draft pick will be in the mix as well. One of the Bridges would make a fine replacement for Fournier.

30 Mar 2018 06:12:43
How do you see Bis and TT together? They are a horrible tandem, two guys with exactly the same skills, both overpaid. Don't like it for Cleveland, they're giving up too many young assets for Bis and Fournier.

30 Mar 2018 14:55:00
Yeah, looking at it now, I probably do have the Cavs over paying. I don't see Biyombo and Thompson ever being on the floor together. Biyombo is just a big body that can guard bigger centers and block shots. I don't see him having a huge role, but 15 minutes a night and maybe a few more if the Cavs are playing a bigger center.
Fournier could be a good third option for the Cavs starting line up, can create, is a really good shooter and has good size.

Maybe taking out Osman and pushing the protection to lottery would be palatable for both teams?

30 Mar 2018 15:19:55
I think Biyombo is a terrific defender, and would play well in CLE system with James. No James, and this wouldn't even be considered. Fournier eliminates the need to pay Hood a ton if it's offered, and CLE doesn't want to match. CLE needs the post defense more than Clarkson's skill set with Hill already there. Zizic, and Osman I don't value very much. I could be highly underestimating their potential. 4 year in the Future protected 1st, not a big loss.

30 Mar 2018 16:12:07
Hill Thompson JrSmith
For
Biyombo Fournier Mack.

30 Mar 2018 19:04:59
I was certainly never eluding to Biyombo, and Thompson on the floor together, just the tandem of Biyombo, Thompson is 10 times Zizic, Thompson defensively. Biyombo start, Thompson back-up.

28 Mar 2018 15:52:42
Marc Jackson plan

Hornets get Kanter Hardaway Noah
Pacers get C.Zeller
Knicks get Howard Melo Jefferson
OKC get Batum

Clippers get Lee Thomas Mudiay
Knicks get Beverly Faried Arthur
Magic get Rivers
Nuggets get Ross W.Johnson

Melo retire in class also restore super stars thought process to want to play for NY. Which is important going into next summer. Knicks will have 70 mil in cap space with 35 mil in payroll in 2019 to sign 3 superstars. Mark Jackson smarter Hornicek knows when you have 2 bigs in at same time, you don't run and gun. Draft Mykal Bridges. Beasley 1yr 10mil

Ntilikina/Burke/Beverly
Bridges-9th/Hutchinson-38th/Dotson
Beasley/Diop-43rd/T.Williams
Melo/Faried/Arthur
Porzingis/Howard/Jefferson

28 Mar 2018 17:35:52
Sam Presti would rent a Cadillac Escalade and drive Anthony to Manhattan if the Knicks could be conned into taking him back.

28 Mar 2018 18:15:07
Super, do you really think that Presti would rather have a horribly overpriced oft injured Batum over Melo? Melo also has one less year on his contract.

28 Mar 2018 18:49:56
Mark Jackson? Why? He was fired for Kerr because the players didn't like him. The players today are less tolerant than Curry, and crew. That was a very public disclosure. The owners asked, and the players said he could go, and they wouldn't object. So why hire the guy to build a modern Knicks team.

28 Mar 2018 20:26:08
There Are/ Will be better choices for HC with the Knicks than M. Jackson. I could see a J. Van Gundy, or better yet, D Fizdale, Before having M. Jackson coaching the Knicks.

29 Mar 2018 00:39:45
The news Jackson or doc rivers, those are choices.

29 Mar 2018 00:54:01
2019 Roster

Irving/ Ntilikina
Bridges/ Hutchinson
Lebron/ Dotson
Durant/ Diop
Porzingis/ BolBol.

29 Mar 2018 01:49:24
Bring back Balky (AKA Jeff Van Gundy), I miss that guy.

Actually, with the youth movement the Knicks are trending towards, I think a Brad Stevens type (Jay Wright maybe? ) would be the best fit. Jackson would not work with an emotional guy like Zinger, and while some seem to think he's a great coaching candidate, the Warriors had to let him go and hire Kerr to reach their potential. He would be better than Hornacek, but still not the answer.

29 Mar 2018 02:41:58
If the choice was Jackson, Rivers, Fizdale, JVG, Kidd, Monty Williams, Stackhouse, Top NCAA HC wanting to jump, or another Top NBA assistant wanting to be a coach in NY. I'd pick:
1. Top NBA assistant
2. Top NCAA HC
3. Stackhouse
4. Monty Williams
5. Rivers

If Fizdale benched Lebron the way he did Gasol, he wouldn't coach again in the league. Lue would never think about it, even when Lebron yells in the huddles, essentially what Gasol did. JVG seems retired. He's not even helping his brother in DET. Kidd - MIL, Parker, stories make him sound like a jackass. No Thanks. Jackson - GS, former teammates, and employers, players stories make him sound like a totalitarian. NY needs a player counselor/ manager/ general, not drill sergeant. Same reason for no on Fizdale. Those guys, and Dolan, and Porzingis already establishing he will not be bullied by fake authority. Sounds like a bad idea. Hornacek was rumored to be chippy as a player, but I was surprised that he has had yelling matches with Porzingis, O'Quinn, Noah. A complete opposite guy needs to be there. NY needs a special guy. Rivers has proven he can coach through adversity, and roster deficiencies, and be effective. I doubt he'll be available, could be wrong. Doc is a good player/ personality manager, he doesn't get enough credit for that. In my opinion.

27 Mar 2018 10:53:34
I think the Spurs could do a little better in a trade for Kawhi and don't see why Orlando would trade for a guy that will probably just walk at the end of the season.

I also don't think that a nonlottery pick and Mills gets you Saric who has been pretty good this year.

27 Mar 2018 13:08:34
Sixers would never agree to that trade.

27 Mar 2018 03:27:43
Orlando receive: Thompson and Smith
Cavs receive: Fournier and Biyombo

Orlando clears up its cap sheet (Smith only 1 year left fully guaranteed)
Cavs get a knock down shooter and remove the Kardashian curse from the locker room

27 Mar 2018 06:46:14
Leuer for Thompson, unite the Kardashian brothers in law in DET.

27 Mar 2018 15:59:12
Smith has no real value.

27 Mar 2018 17:22:28
Dacman, I don't think this trade works for Orlando, but if you're looking to clear cap space, Smith has value. Not from his play, but from how his contract is structured.

24 Mar 2018 04:59:30

24 Mar 2018 11:26:51
As much as I would trade Ross for him, salaries aren't close.

24 Mar 2018 13:14:59
No thanks on the Frank for T-Ross deal, and Barton is getting more than that.

24 Mar 2018 14:37:17
Triangle, I'm not sure Barton gets much more than that given the climate this offseason. I just saw something saying 5 teams will have cap space. I'm not sure how correct it is, but their will definitely be less than 10 teams and most of them are the rebuilding teams. They aren't going to pay a 27 year old big money and that leaves the MLE for him in free agency.

I do agree trading Ntilikina doesn't make sense here though.

23 Mar 2018 03:11:16
Lee Porzingis 38th 44th
For
Leonard

Murray/Mills/White

Finally Bench scoring and PF
Clippers Mudiay Ntilikina Baker Noah 8th

Knicks get Ross W.Johnson Rivers ext 4yr 56mil Harris ext 4yr 100 mil

Sign Beasley 3 yr 25 mil MLE
Extend O'Quinn 5yr 65mil opt-in with ext. 5yr when 35 (15, 15, 15, 10 & 10)

Rivers/Burke/Carter
Batum/Ross/Dotson
Leonard/Johnson/T.Williams
Harris/Beasley/Hicks
Howard/O'Quinn/Kornet

If Leonard wins a title in NY after 46 yrs of no title and no 2nd superstar, he would surpass Jeter as biggest sports celeb in NY

23 Mar 2018 10:15:49
I like the Leonard for Porzingis trade, but this would only work, if the knicks can get a second starr (maybe K Walker)

The Knicks shouldn't try to win next year, and rebuilt with draft picks.
They can draft an extra young piece this year and propably next year. Ntilikina is going to be better next year. And Porzingis will come back. So give the young players time to develop and try to sign a free agent in 2020 as final piece to become a contender.

23 Mar 2018 16:07:31
Walker holds the ball too long. Rivers efficient 3 point shooter does not over dribble. You can switch Rivers (from FL) to Orlando for Ross keep Beverly. This would make NY once again king of defense in the league. Knicks only way of winning a title is with defense, deep bench and offensive efficiency.

23 Mar 2018 16:08:42
Maybe the Knicks should try to get Anthony back.

24 Mar 2018 04:08:12
Are u crazy? U want to giv oquinn a 5yr 65 mill conttact?

24 Mar 2018 14:41:35
Yeah, like I've said on a few threads discussing salary, the best he can hope for from another team is the MLE. I wouldn't give him more than something like 3 years at 7 orn8!million per and possibly less than that.

21 Mar 2018 20:33:55
Det-Magic-Bucks

Det: Bledsoe, Fournier, Henson
- upgrade at point and the wing while moving a bad contract

Magic get Jackson, Johnson, Wilson
- temp pg until whoever the magic draft will replace him. Also adds 2 young players to build around Gordon

Bucks: Drummond
- upgrade with an anchor 5 and bucks bring Giannis back to point

21 Mar 2018 21:09:27
I don't see why Detroit would be interested. Drummond has been really good this year and is still young. Why would Detroit want to move him?

21 Mar 2018 21:34:33
I look at Griffin and he has the size and ability to guard against the 5, and cause mismatch problems with larger centers on him. Griffin and Drummond locked up about 40-45% of the cap for the next two years so they will be banking on the rest of their team pushing them to deep contender. I do not see that happening. Ish and Reggie are both bottom 1/ 3 pg and although Det will have good clips on ESPN realistically they are not going to be a 1-4 seed in the east.

21 Mar 2018 21:38:30
Not enough for Drummond, Plus as rkenne stated, I also doubt that Detroit would want to move Drummond as Henson is no where near what Drummond pulls down in rebounds on a consistent basis.

22 Mar 2018 01:59:59
Succeed, I don't see Griffin being able to handle the 5 like you do, so I don't see this as a deal that Detroit would make.

22 Mar 2018 02:22:36
I get what you're saying Suceed, but I'd argue that Drummond is the better player (or atleast the player that is actually able to stay on the court) . Who knows how long Van Gundy is going to be there and I don't think a new gm will feel any kind of attachment to Griffin.

20 Mar 2018 14:32:20

I don't think Doncic fails that far, but the trade isn't bad. It all depends on how Detroit feels about Jackson though. If they value him at all, they turn it down. If they're looking to dump his salary though, I like it for everyone.

I like this for the Knicks and i think Detroit would dump Jackson.
Only not sure Orlando would trade that far down in the draft.

Robert Williams isn’t projected as a lottery pick. Why in the world would the Knicks take him over higher potential prospects? Only way they do that is trade down. But you post the same type of post daily. So it’s whatever.

I think the Knicks should just keep Noah's contract. Giving away young players or picks to get off of Noah's contract doesn't seems like a bad move. What can they do with that space this summer that will make them a playoff team assuming KP isn't ready to start the year next season.

I'm not sure I go after Robert Williams though. It may be a bit of a stretch at that point and I think you want to go high upside with that pick. I think Williams could be a really good role player, but I don't really see the path he takes to be a star. Knox or Miles Bridges would probably be my pick unless Sexton or Young is there and NY is in love with one of them.

Watch Williams play. He is dominating PF. Without trading or resigning NY has 3 PG next Mudiay Ntilikina Burke 3 SG Hardaway Lee Baker SF Thomas Dotson T. Williams Center Porzingis (real position) Kanter Noah no PFs. Hicks is garbage. Beasley is looking for multi years deal. No descent 2nd at PF.

Nuggets loaded with PFs. They should be my target.

I agree with you on Williams. I actually posted in the talk section about him, but with one star in KP maybe only this year and next year left in the lottery, I think they need to go high upside rather than take a guy that looks like a high level role player. He reminds me a little of Larry Nance. An undersized hustle guy that can block shots and guard multiple positions.
