Pistons trade Reggie Jackson and Jon Leuer.

Magic trade DJ Augustine, Mario Hezonja and Bismack Biyombo.

15 Oct 2017 03:55:18
So the Pistons have Biyombo and Drummond.

11 Oct 2017 23:15:40
Bucks: Clarckson+ fournier

LA: Monroe+ A gordon

Orlando: Deng+ J Parker+ 1rnd pick LA 2020

12 Oct 2017 00:58:26
thats going to be a no from orlando on giving up gordon. they take a risk on jabari, get deng’s lovely contract and the lakers pick in 2020 might be post-lottery if things work out like magic is hoping. that's not a great move for the magic franchise.

12 Oct 2017 01:50:27
Why would Orlando do that?

12 Oct 2017 02:09:29
Lay off the crack. Lakers ain't getting Gordon for unloading dents contract and a first rounder 3 years from now.

12 Oct 2017 15:31:52
If things work out for the Lakers
Westbrook and PG13 could stay in OKC, LBJ is'nt going to LA either, so i'm not sure they can get a good free agent

LA has a good young core, but they don't have their pick this year and phoenix, Denver, Sacramento, minnesota and Utah all have young teams that could developt the next few years. So that pick could fall out the lottery, but it could be a great pick too.
(The Lakers didn't expected their pick would be a lottery pick, when they traded for D Howard too) .

Gordon is a fun to watch, but J Parker is much better, ok he's a risk, but i would gambe, and take Parker and the pick.

30 Sep 2017 01:08:54

Cleveland get R.Gobert

Utah get Nets 1st, N.Vucevic, J.Crowder

Orlando get T.Thompson, Cavs own 1st

30 Sep 2017 05:27:56
I love Gobert, but the Nets #1 pick, Cavs own #1 pick, Thompson, AND Crowder is a huge price to pay. Cavs are giving up too much in this deal.

30 Sep 2017 09:49:24
i think its about fair for gorbert. his value is super high rn.

30 Sep 2017 17:39:39
Gobert is a stud but that’s way too much value for the Cavs to give up.

30 Sep 2017 19:18:25
There's no way Utah gives up Gobert for less. He is top 10 value in the entire NBA.

29 Sep 2017 22:29:57
Cavs - Magic

Cavs gets:
2020 1st Thunder (via Magic) (Top 20 protected)

Magic gets:
2020 2nd Miami (via Cavs)

Cavs get a defensive center to their bench unit. Biyombo is needed to protect the paint when Thomas and Rose let their man go by them on drives. Cavs have to many players on their roster and either need to cut one, or make a 2 for 1 deal.

Magic move a big contract to save money long term and to get a chance on free agents next summer. Frye is expiring and Shumpert have a player option for next year so the can possibly save 34 million in this deal.

Cavs 2017/18

29 Sep 2017 23:33:27
Pretty solid for both teams. I like it. It helps the Cavs now and in case of a rebuild and gives Orlando the capspace they need.

30 Sep 2017 00:39:16
Don't mind it for either team.

30 Sep 2017 13:53:48
This is fairly even I quite like this Biyombo is a good rim protector so they can load up on shooters in smaller line ups and adding a future first is another asset the Cavs can use maybe flip that pick and the Nets pick for a young star later on.
Shumpert and Frye could give them the cap flexibility to let Weltman improve Hennigans mess sooner rather then later and could be used at the trade deadline too and they still get 2nd rounder to help with their build.
Overall it does help both teams with the positions their already in.

26 Sep 2017 17:19:20
Cavs get cousins
Pelicans get Thompson osman Brooklyn 1st

Cavs get vucevic
Magic get shumpert Frye felder cavs 1st

Sign wade Ellis

Thomas rose Calderon
Smith wade Ellis
James korver Jefferson
Love crowder green
Cousins vucevic zizic

26 Sep 2017 18:12:56
Orlando passes even faster than the Pelicans do.

26 Sep 2017 19:18:56
The Vucevic offer seems short and if the Cavs wouldn't really need him. Especially if they had Cousins, who would play over 30 minutes a game in the playoffs.

Dacman, if they think Cousins is walking, what kind of offers do you think they are going to get? They could do worse than a young 3 and d player that could immediately play decent minutes for them, a young starting center, and a top 5 pick.

26 Sep 2017 22:11:41
Pelicans should consider this kind of offer if things don't go out as planned, I mean they've got Cousins for less.

25 Sep 2017 14:58:36
Cavs get vucevic
Magic get shumpert osman felder zizic

Sign wade Hibbert

Thomas rose Calderon
Smith wade korver
James crowder Jefferson
Love Frye green
Thompson vucevic hibbert

25 Sep 2017 15:34:59
There are no Mensa candidates in the Magic front office, but they probably know enough to not give away a decent player for the Cavaliers' hand-me-downs.

25 Sep 2017 18:44:02
I don't think this is terrible for Orlando. Frye is expiring, Shumpert would probably opt out and Zizic and Osman would have went in the first round last year. It's been a buyers market recently and I don't seen Vuvevic getting a huge return. He's not young enough to rebuild around and he's not good enough to put a team over the top. I don't see this as a trade the Cavs really need to make though. They should keep Zizic and Osman in case someone like Cousins comes available.

26 Sep 2017 10:37:07
i think osman and zizic have too much potential upside to just give them away in a deal like this.

25 Sep 2017 04:38:35
Crazy offseason so far let's add another move


ORL get BKN pick , Iman Shumpert & Channing Frye

CLE get ORL 1st round pick 2018 (top 7 protected , conditional if they retain the pick next year) & Nikola Vucevic

CLE get a very good big who can rotate with Love and Thompson while still getting a pick giving up BKN pick and removing salaries. ORL could be better than BKN, they get a higher pick and has the chance to get 2 lottery picks if their own falls from 1-7.


Pg Payton/Augustin/Mack
Sg Fournier/Simmons/Afflalo
Sf Ross/Shumpert/Hezonja
Pf Isaac/Gordon/Frye
Ce Biyombo/Speights


Pg Thomas/Rose/Calderon
Sg Smith/Korver
Sf James/Crowder/Jefferson
Pf Love/Green
Ce Thompson/Vucevic/Zizic

25 Sep 2017 04:55:57
Cleveland is not giving up the nets pick for Vucivic and a protected 1st. Not happening.

25 Sep 2017 10:34:27
Vucevic is not a bad player, but that trade is a non-starter. Shumpert and Frye might not even be rotation players in Orlando.

25 Sep 2017 23:34:56
Only if they panic and go all in, but i can't see Cleveland doing this.

14 Sep 2017 11:43:39

Pacers get T. Ross
Magic gets A. Jefferson / G. Robinson III

14 Sep 2017 22:19:22
Magic don't need either player so better deal for Indy.

03 Sep 2017 19:42:54
Cavs get vucevic cousins
Magic get Frye osman Jefferson felder
Pelicans get shumpert zizic Brooklyn 1st

Sign wade (if bought out) Ellis bogut

Thomas rose Calderon
Smith wade Ellis
James crowder korver
Love thompson green
Cousins vucevic bogut

03 Sep 2017 20:12:38
Probably not enough for Vucevic and if they get Cousins Vuvevic has no real place on the team. Crowder, Green and Lebron will get all of the the minutes at back up pf. Love is going to get minutes at Center and Thompson would eat up any minutes left behind. Thompson isn't a pf in today's league.

05 Sep 2017 14:35:46
Stop already with the incredibly lame " let's get an all-star for garbage" trade. You guys in Cleveland are pretty funny. After Lebron bails on you next year let's see what All-Stars wanna play there.

25 Aug 2017 02:27:54

Knicks get Bledsoe

Suns get Lee & Payton

Magic get 1st round pick Knicks & Baker

25 Aug 2017 18:12:33
It's not bad for any team, but i don't like it.

Bledsoe can bring NY into the playoffs, but they shouldn't hurry and rebuilt with young players. The draft pick should be lottery protected.

The suns should keep Bledsoe, if this is the best they can get for him.

It's a good trade for Orlando, the NY pick can be good.

23 Aug 2017 12:32:57

Memphis get Payton , Felder , T.Ross , Shumpert , Thompson , Vucevic , Magic 1st 2018 , Cavs future 1st

Orlando receive Irving & Chandler

Phoenix receive Payton , Vucevic

Cleveland receive Bledsoe , Isaac & 1st from Magic

22 Aug 2017 23:37:34
one of the rare good trades here, really profitable for all three teams.

21 Aug 2017 19:12:10
Trade between Portland and Orlando:

Two Options:
Option 1:

Orlando Gets:

CJ McCollum

Portland Gets:
Aaron Gordon
Evan Fournier

Option 2:

Orlando Gets:

CJ McCollum
Evan Turner

Portland Gets:

Aaron Gordon
Evan Fournier
DJ Augustine

21 Aug 2017 22:58:01
Dont think portland goes for either on of these deals. McCollum is too good a player.

21 Aug 2017 23:35:10
Both of trades aren't even close to being good enough. Maybe if you add a top 3 protected pick.

22 Aug 2017 00:54:36
As an Orlando fan, I don't want to get rid of Gordon. Out of these two options, I like the 2nd one best. Maybe Portland would throw Mo Harkless as well, to help Portland save money.




22 Aug 2017 02:59:07
Wait wait you think Portland would give up more than CJ for Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier. If Portland is adding more than CJ it's either Turner or Leonard not Harkless. Gordon is so overrated he's nothing but potential that it seems like every year Magic fans hopes he breaks out but he's not gonna. At best he's an average starter nothing worth CJ. CJ is a borderline all star and Fournier is only a little better than Crabbe.

25 Aug 2017 18:40:16
I thought that the trade would work because Lillard and McCullum don't really work well together and they need some position flexibility.

Would picks need to be involved? And if so, to who and from who?

18 Aug 2017 14:30:56
I don't think that's anywhere near enough of a return for Irving.

23 Aug 2017 15:23:08
can't see Orlando trading for an aging player.

The Bucks need picks if they trade Henson for Shumpert.

Four team trade: Knicks/Cavaliers/76ers/Suns
New York Knicks trade: Kristaps Porzingis, Carmelo Anthony, Frank Ntilinkina, and Joakim Noah

New York Knicks receive: Kyrie Irving, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Dragan Bender, and Channing Frye

The Knicks are giving up their present and their future all in one deal here. So why would they do this deal? Simple: they are gaining an even brighter future. Irving is a proven star and wants nothing more than to play in New York. The Knicks have been unwilling to include Porzingis in a deal for Irving this offseason, so I remedied that by essentially swapping Anthony out for Saric and Covington, more than fair considering both of their ages and potential, and, more importantly, ridding them of Noah's lengthy and pricey contract. Swapping out Ntilinkina for Bender would be more of a positional swap than anything, as acquiring Irving wouldn't leave much room for Ntilinkina, however, acquiring Bender would provide the Knicks with Porzingis' replacement, one of the most similar type of players as compared to Porzingis in the league. Moreover, this trade would open up over $20 million worth of cap space, and potentially enough for a max contract, for the next offseason. Free agents have never been shy in their desire to play in New York, which would be even more the case with Irving in town and youngsters such as Saric and Bender around.

Tim Hardaway Jr./Courtney Lee
Covington/Lance Thomas
Kyle O'Quinn/Willy Hernangomez

Cleveland Cavaliers trade: Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson, and Kay Felder

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: Eric Bledsoe, Carmelo Anthony, and Richaun Holmes

In terms of talent, this deal would provide the Cavaliers with more than a fair return in exchange for Irving. While this may not be the same case in terms of value (although definitely debatable), the Cavaliers have been really struggling to find a team willing to give up fair value for Irving and most likely will not find fair value for a player of Irving's status. The Cavaliers will be in a very weird spot this upcoming season with the uncertainty of James' future as a Cavalier hanging over their heads. They desire to acquire a veteran player along with a young prospect with high upside for Irving in the event that LeBron James is to bolt again. With this trade, they would not only acquire one veteran, one who is still only 27-years-old and probably just played his best season of basketball as a professional, but two, the other whose contract expires after this season and they could decide to re-sign should James opt to stay in Cleveland. Although Holmes doesn't possess as high of upside as the Cavaliers would hope, he is signed for two more years on a very cheap contract and coming off a breakout season in which he was extremely effective in terms of per 36 minutes statistics while holding down a very efficient field goal percentage and even stretching the floor for his team by hitting some three pointers. Ridding themselves of Frye, Shumpert, Jefferson, and Felder would neutralize the blow the team would face for acquiring the pricey contracts of Bledsoe and Anthony.

Bledsoe/Derrick Rose
Anthony/Kyle Korver
James/J.R. Smith
Kevin Love/Jeff Green
Tristan Thompson/Holmes

Philadelphia 76ers trade: Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Richaun Holmes, Jahlil Okafor, 2018 76ers first-round pick, and 2018 Lakers first-round pick (top 1 protected)/2019 Kings first-round pick (pick that doesn't get traded to the Celtics)

Philadelphia 76ers receive: Kristaps Porzingis, Joakim Noah, and Richard Jefferson

Giving up four young players with solid upside, two potentially high draft picks, and taking on an absolutely terrible contract (along with a much smaller one) would be a hard pill for the 76ers to swallow. There are only a few players in the league worth this type of package and Porzingis is certainly one of them. Can you seriously imagine the 76ers acquiring Porzingis without giving up Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Markelle Fultz? Wow! The potential for the team to succeed in the future would probably be something that has never been heard of in the past. If all these players are to live up to their highest potential, just imagine a team of James Harden, LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, and Hakeem Olajuwon all playing together. That would be absolutely absurd! The best part would be that the team, even with Noah's contract on the books, would have just under $30 million to spend on free agents next season, with the chance to finesse enough cap space for a maximum contract if need be. Shooting and defense would probably be the two biggest needs for a team of this caliber, and with players such as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley available, the team would have a variety of opportunities to complete their starting line-up for the next 10 years.

Fultz/Jerryd Bayless
J.J. Redick/Nik Stauskas
Simmons/Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
Porzingis/Amir Johnson

Phoenix Suns trade: Eric Bledsoe and Dragan Bender

Phoenix Suns receive: Jahlil Okafor, Frank Ntilinkina, Iman Shumpert, 2018 76ers first-round pick, and 2018 Lakers first-round pick (top 1 protected)/2019 Kings first-round pick (pick that doesn't get traded to the Celtics)

The Phoenix Suns are one of the youngest teams in the league, and they are only hoping to get younger as they look to sell off veterans such as Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and a few others. They have the minutes and room for risk available to take a chance on a player like Okafor, who still has enough offensive potential in him to be a possible surprise for a team willing to take the risk in acquiring him. More important in this deal, however, would be the two picks the team would be acquiring. Even with the magical upside the 76ers would have on their roster following this trade, they would almost undoubtedly need another year to develop into a true contender, and that's not taking injuries into consideration. Granted, the Eastern Conference is probably as weak as it has ever been and the 76ers can just as easily sneak into the playoffs as a seventh or eighth seed as they can finish as an 11th or 12th seed, but even if this pick were to fall as far back as 15th, it would provide the Suns with an opportunity to draft a player with, at minimum, medial upside. The second pick the Suns would receive in this deal would either be the Lakers' draft pick next year or the Kings' draft pick in two years. They would receive the Lakers pick next year if it fell beyond the fifth slot. Considering the likeliness of their pick falling somewhere between the sixth and 10th slot in next year's draft, or the likeliness of the Kings' draft pick landing somewhere in the top five slot the following year, the return the Suns would be receiving in this trade for Bledsoe would be very worthwhile. As mentioned before, swapping Bender for Ntilinkina would be positional more than anything, as Marquese Chriss plays the same position that Bender plays and outperformed him this previous season. The Suns need themselves a young point guard of the future and the hope would be that Ntilinkina would be that guy for them.

14 Aug 2017 17:36:51
Philly says no, way too much to give up just for Zinger.

14 Aug 2017 17:37:20
Not bad. I think the biggest hang ups would be the amount the 76ers are giving up here and I'm not sure if the Cavs would be willing to go all in this year rather than getting a mix of young talent and established players. Holmes is young, but he is probably a career role player.

14 Aug 2017 19:16:47
Philly says no. Could go either way if that is too much for Porzingis but I could see it happen, but with adding Noah that is way too much imo. They should be keeping one of Covington or Saric and one of those first should become 2 seconds

14 Aug 2017 22:44:30
I agree that the 76ers may be giving up too much but what you guys have to understand is that the Knicks aren't at all desperate to trade Porzingis, and even Anthony for that matter taking into account the offers they've received for him, therefore, it would take a king's ransom deal to grab him. 76ers have a lot of assets that they will have to consolidate at some point, and they should that sooner rather than waiting till later and receiving pennies on the dollar.

Porzingis has a truly unique skill set, is a superstar in the making playing in a superstar's league, and is extremely young, making him worth the king's ransom. The fact that they would still have enough money to spend on a top free agent next season in an effort to fill out their line-up would be icing on the cake.

15 Aug 2017 00:41:57
Danny, I just think you're underestimating how much of a negative asset Noah is.

15 Aug 2017 03:43:41
No ones arguing that it would take a ransom to get him but Philly is giving up a ransom and then your acting like the Knicks can throw in one of the worst contracts in the NBA on top of it. Like I said I can see the Sixers doing that without Noah included

15 Aug 2017 15:24:17
I don't see phoenix doing this. Yes they're getting a lot, but it's mainly a lot of nothing. No one wants play of, and the Lakers pick I believe is already owed to Boston for moving up this year to #1. So it would be 2 years before they get the first rounder. And I don't believe they can trade they're own pick since they're already trading one. so basically phoenix trades Bledsoe, and bender for okafor schumperts contract, and the pg from new York.

12 Aug 2017 04:02:40
NY Knicks X ORL Magic

NY take - N.Vucevic & E.Payton

G- Payton,Baker
G- Lee,Hardaway
F- Anthony,Thomas
F- Porzingis,Kuzminkas
C- Vucevic,Hernangomez,Oquinn

ORL take - F.Nkitilina & J.Noah

G- Augustin,Nkitilina,Mack
G- Fournier,Simmons,Hezonja
F- Ross,Afflalo
F- Gordon,Isaac
C- Biyombo,Noah,Speights

for NY, they get a young center who can play alongside both Porzingis & Hernangomez while adding a young guard who can feed their shooters

for ORL, they take Noah and his contract back in Florida while getting a very young future point guard of their team

dont know if it works guys have some comments

12 Aug 2017 05:20:43
Orlando turns that down. Payton has been underwhelming, but he's still a solid and Has potential. Vucevic has solid value. ntilikna would have to be package with Noah just to get out from under Noah's contract. It's probably the worst contract in the league given Noah's level of play, age, injury history, and fairly long suspension.

12 Aug 2017 17:20:45
I don't know that Peyton has a bunch of promise, but I'd rather keep him and Vuc instead of taking on Noah's contract and a point guard who's 2-3 years away from being a major contributor.

12 Aug 2017 19:57:45
Noah best bet is is to be traded to Wolves.
