Lakers get Bismack Biyombo, #25 pick, and a future 2nd

Magic get Timofey Mozgov, D'Angelo Russell, and #28 pick.

23 May 2017 13:16:15
Nowhere close. Biyombo and Mozgov are basically a wash, so the Lakers give up Russell and a 2dn rounder to move up three spots in the late first round? That's insane.

23 May 2017 16:02:42
Agree with soxfan. The lakers get complete screwed here. Biyombo and mozgov are both horrible contracts.

23 May 2017 16:04:33
Biyombo is 24 years old. And the Lakers are the ones receiving the future 2nd rd pick.

23 May 2017 16:35:34
Wtf does age have to do with it? When you're trash, you're trash.

22 May 2017 02:47:47
Orlando: 2017 1st (1) and Avery Bradley

Celtics: 2017 1st (6), 2018 1st (Lottery protected, unprotected 2019) Mario Hezonja, and Nikola Vucevic

Celtics get the rim protector they desperately need, a young wing in need of a scenery change, and still get a high pick

Orlando gets a good guard and select Lonzo Ball or Markelle Fultz to be a cornerstone of the franchise.

Horford/Isaac (6th)

Payton/Fultz(or Ball)

22 May 2017 11:54:08
This trade is not going to happen. Vucevic is a decent player and the Celtics might do Bradley and a non-Nets No. 1 next year for Vucevic and Orlando's No. 1 this year. But this year's overall No. 1 leaves town only if a big gun comes to Boston -- George, Butler, etc.

22 May 2017 16:47:31
I love the idea of trading for Vucevic, but moving from the 1 to the 6 is WAY too much for him. Bradley would fit them well, and is pretty solid compensation all by himself. He's an expiring though, so Boston could throw in a non Nets 2018 1st rounder to make it more even. Vucevic would fit well in Boston, as he's a really solid rebounder at half the price of a guy like Drummond.

21 May 2017 22:10:56
Philly: 2017 1st (6th) and Terrence Ross

Orlando: 2017 1st (3rd), 2017 2nd (39th) and Justin Anderson

Philly trades down and takes the player they want (Monk) and get a good wing with scoring ability (Ross)

Orlando moves up to get, hopefully, a cornerstone player (Fultz, Ball, or Jackson, whoever drops to 3) picks up another 2nd Rd pick and a young player with potential (Anderson)

22 May 2017 00:40:15
Sixers have no reason to agree to this trade.

22 May 2017 02:33:38
Really? They get the guy they want in Monk and get a sharpshooting wing with a career 3PT% of almost 40%. Everyone says 3rd pick is too high for Monk but 6th is just right. Ross is definitely better than Anderson and Philly slightly sweetens the pot with a 2nd RD pick. This would be a great deal for both teams.

22 May 2017 05:19:30
Is Ross enough to move from 6 to3? Seems like sixers could find more value in a trade elsewhere. d then you have philly adding a #2 and a role player to " sweeten the pot"? This is a great deal for orlando, not philly. i'd like to here from another poster who honestly thinks ross gets you from 6 to 3.

22 May 2017 09:07:00
This a trade idea on Bleacher Report, I'm a Magic fan but I look at things realistically while I think Monk is a perfect fit and Ross is a young vet on an ok contract I think Sixers would want more for a star potential 3rd pick in Jackson. Getting the 2nd rounder when they already have loads won't cut it so maybe a future asset as theirs not much on Magic's roster they want.
Sixers could trade down and having a guy like Monk could be like what Ray Allen was like for Boston. If they did I think they could have a bidding war between Orl, Pho, Nyk, Sac, Dal etc.

22 May 2017 17:21:12
To move from 3 to 6 would cost more then a bench player. there's No guarantee monk is available at 6th either.

21 May 2017 06:25:22

Timofey Mozgov/NeNe

legitamte contender in west amd deffinatly challenges warriors for top team in the west

21 May 2017 06:28:13
Sixers own that LAL pick.

21 May 2017 07:39:40
So Magic give up
Ross, 33rd pick
Deng, Mcw and 38th pick

They add a older player on a bad contract a pg with very similar flaws to Payton and a lesser 2nd rounder. Dillusional lakers fan strikes again.

21 May 2017 08:13:49
I'm confused why Magic are even in this trade. Lakers getting Ross just makes it more difficult for them to sign Lowry and George. They also aren't getting much of anything for giving him up and taking on Deng's bad contract.

20 May 2017 03:25:41
Magic-sixers trade

Magic gets saric, okafor, thunders 1st 2020 and 2 2nd picks
Sixers get #6 and hezonja

Sixers draft monk or isaac
Magics trade vucevic or okafor to other team.

20 May 2017 06:58:22
Hezonja and Okafor value wise are probably fairly close but for a team like Magic especially when they already have an offensive center in Vucevic I'd prefer upside of Hezonja even if he hasn't really showed any indication of ever reaching that. Saric although good I don't think is worthy of #6 pick in this deep draft even when adding those smaller pieces. Magic should be getting more

I think it would be extremely foolish for 76ers to waste #3 on Monk or Issac. I think Jackson is clearly the best prospect available at #3 (although not a great fit) and a case could be made for Tatum since he is a better fit but doesn't have quite upside of Jackson. If 76ers really want Monk I think they'd be better suited trading down. Should be plenty of teams wanting to move up to get Jackson.

19 May 2017 22:27:01
Magic trade 6th pick, Biyombo, Hezonja, Watson
Magic get 4th pick from Suns, Knight, Okafor

- draft needed SF Tatum with 4th pick, also get former 2nd overall pick Okafor and still young 2-guard Knight. move also gains cap space to have more flexibility!!!

Suns trade 4th pick, Knight
Suns get 3rd pick from 76ers, Watson

- draft needed SF Jackson

76ers trade 3rd pick, Okafor
76ers get 6th pick, Biyombo, Hezonja

- draft needed SG Monk
- Simmons needs shooting and athletism around him: add 2 athletic shooter with this down-trade (Monk and Hezonja) and another energizer, defenisve presence in C/PF Biyombo, trust the process

20 May 2017 07:09:10
Suns and Magic are getting too much. 76ers should be able to do much better. Knight doesn't move you up from #4 to #3 and not sure why 76ers would want any part of Biyombo's contract. Generally tho Suns moving up to #3, Magic moving up and 76ers moving down makes sense for the three teams the value just has to make more sense.

19 May 2017 12:53:30
Philadelphia: 2017 1st (6th), both 2017 2nds, and Biyombo

Orlando: 2017 1st (3rd) and Okafor

Philadelphia moves slightly down and receives 2 high 2nd round picks

Orlando moves up and gets Okafor, maybe change of scenery does him well.

Orlando drafts Jackson (3rd) and Giles (25th)

Philadelphia drafts Monk or Fox (6th) plus whoever with their other picks

19 May 2017 13:11:15
Sixers have tons of 2nd rd picks. not enough to trade down for sixers.

19 May 2017 13:34:42
I'm alright with Philly trading down since Jackson isn't the ideal fit for 76ers, Monk's shooting ability would be a great fit at #6. However, 76ers need to get a great return since Jackson is a very good prospect. 2 2nds and Biyombo's big contract don't really help the 76ers at all. Fournier and Ross are probably all 76ers would be interested (solid wings who can shoot) in of the Magic other than future first round draft picks. For me it would probably take something like Fournier and Magic top 5 protected 2018 pick in addition to #6 for 3rd pick and Okafor.

19 May 2017 13:54:44
Hezonja? Could potentially be involved in this deal! Not sure how Orlando are feeling about him now.

19 May 2017 15:01:23
Its comical that you add 2 second rounders to this trade. Sixers already have 4 this year, why would they want more? I could see sixers trading this pick, but not to orlando.

19 May 2017 15:07:50
Agree that the sixers theoretically could move down because they do need some more shooting/ guards to fit with embiid Simmons and saric, but the idea that jackson doesn't fit at all is false.

Even if Simmons doesn't work out at the point guard spot, they still could have all of him jackson and saric rotate at the 3 and 4. Depending on matchups I could even see all three of them together on the floor when embiid needs a blow.

Because of the foresight of the previous GM, they still will have two firsts in the next 3 drafts which m9re then likely atleast 1 lottery pick in each. They at this point should still be taking the best player available. Jackson is that.

19 May 2017 15:36:46
I'm a Magic fan and I can't see this happening. Sixers trading down for Monk is a good idea as he can spread the floor, get hot, create his own shot, defend pg's, he can get to the basket and is fairly athletic which would fit well next to Simmons who will run the offence and he can cover his weaknesses by matching up against big sg's.
But Biyombo is an overpaid rim protector and two seconds when Sixers already have loads of 2nds.

Sixers would probably go for the 6th pick and a future 1st for the 3rd pick as Magic aren't projected to get better anytime soon so that would be a lottery pick and an asset for their future to trade or build with.

19 May 2017 02:29:31
Simple 3-way Trade between Philly, Orlando, and LAL that benefits everyone

Magic receive D'Angelo Russel, Gerald Henderson, and Tarik Black (cut), 3rd pick (from Philly)

76ers receive Evan Fournier, 6th Pick (from Orlando)

Lakers receive Nikola Vucevic

----- Reasons ------
Magic gets a young combo guard in Russell and move up into the top 3 to grab either Jackson or Tatum. ThIs will give them a young Big 3 (Russell, Jackson/Tatum, and Gordon) to build around.

Philly gets a scoring 2 guard who would be a great complement to PG Simmons. Fournier is young and signed long-term on a pretty reasonable contract. They should also draft Monk who could be an excellent sixth man until he's ready to start.

Lakers add a skilled big man who could help a thin frontcourt. And they get rid of Russell who probably wouldn't be a great fit with Lonzo.

----- Post-trade Depth Charts ------
Russell, Payton, Augustin, Watson
Ross, Henderson, Meeks
Jackson/Tatum, Hezonja
Gordon, FA
Biyombo, Zimmerman

Simmons, McConnell, Bayless
Fournier, Monk
Covington, TLC, Anderson
Saric, Holmes
Embiid, Okafor

Lonzo, FA, nwaba
Clarkson, young, brewer
Ingram, deng,
Randle, Nance
Vucevic, Zubac, Mozgov

**** Please comment what you think****

19 May 2017 04:49:33
I don't like it for Lakers. I love Vuc but he and Randle would be terrible defensively. They can package Russell to a bigger deal.

19 May 2017 06:40:51
I agree with USA. Vucevic is a solid youngish big on a reasonable contract but isn't a good fit with Lakers roster plus I don't think his value is as high as Russell. I also, don't think Russell would be a bad fit basketball wise with Lonzo. Russell played off-ball to Clarkson for stretches and was successful. Russell is also much more of a natural scorer than Lonzo who is a more natural pg that can impact the game without scoring a bunch of points. Personality wise their could be a clash (more so with Lavarr and Russell) that could create unnecessary drama and distractions (as Russell has already done previously) .

I don't think 76ers would mind trading down and adding a shooter like Fournier although I wouldn't describe his contract as reasonable especially since his numbers are inflated on that Magic team. 76ers would probably need more to be really interested in this since Jackson is a great prospect (although not that great a fit with 76ers) .

I don't think Magic value Vucevic that much and Fournier although youngish doesn't provide much besides scoring. Don't think #6 is a great position for the Magic (Fox is too similar to Payton, Issac probably their best option but he is very hit or miss) so trading up is definitely in the cards. Getting a guy like Russell too who can play pg or sg would be a big win for the Magic who otherwise wouldn't have too much to be excited about.

18 May 2017 08:36:15

76ers get Avery Bradley, Tyler Zeller, and #7 pick (via MIN)
-Draft Malik Monk
PG: Simmons, McConnell, Baylee
SG: Bradley, Monk, Luwawu
SF: Covington, Anderson
PF: Saric, (Veteran)
C: Embiid, Holmes, Zeller

Celtics get Gorgui Dieng
-Sign Gordon Hayward
-Draft Markelle Fultz
PG: Thomas, Fultz, Rozier
SG: Hayward, Smart
SF: Crowder, Brown
PF: Dieng, Yabusele, Mickey
C: Horford, (Olynyk or Johnson)

Twolves get #3 pick and Jahlil Okafor
-Trade Andrew Wiggins to Orlando for Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja, and #33 pick
-Draft Josh Jackson
PG: Rubio, Dunn, Jones
SG: LaVine, Hezonja
SF: Jackson, (veteran)
PF: Gordon, Bjelica
C: Towns, Okafor, Aldrich.

18 May 2017 10:27:53
That Orlando trade us soooooooooo terrible for Minnesota it's funny. Aaron Gordan is grossly overrated and Mario Hezonja has practically done nothing in the league. Wiggins is a star if Minnesota were to even think about that trade it would have to include the 6th pick. I still wouldn't do it if I'm Minnesota. Take out Wiggins and put in Lavine.

18 May 2017 14:43:36
I think Minnesota would need to give more in the three way deal. But it's close.

18 May 2017 17:49:08
Dieng is a nice player and frankly better than anyone else on Boston's front line, but seems like the Celts have bigger fish to fry -- especially if Bradley is in the deal.

16 May 2017 22:11:32
Hawks - Magic - Thunder

Hawks gets: Kanter, Singler

Magic gets: Howard

Thunder: Biyombo, Augustin

17 May 2017 07:07:12
If I'm the Hawks I think I may prefer Biyombo's defensive style over Kanter's offensive style. Both are younger players than Howard so i could see Hawks going this route if they want to let Millsap walk and try to rebuild around younger guys liek Schroeder, Hardaway and Prince. The issue is this doesn't present too promising a future so they may just be better off keeping Howard and resigning Millsap so they can stay a top 5 seed in the east and hope things go there way and they can slip into the finals.

14 May 2017 21:17:17
Magic trade Biyombo
Magic get Davis, 15th pick

Blazers trade McCollum, Harkless, Davis, 15th pick, 20th pick
Blazers get Butler, Biyombo

Bulls trade Butler
Bulls get Okafor, Harkless, 4th pick 76ers, 20th pick Blazers

76ers trade Okafor, 4th pick
76ers get McCollum

- now have 5th, 15th and 25th pick
- let Green and Meeks walk, sign vet FA and keep develop young core (complete starting 5 + Hezonja) = playoff contender within 2 years

- go all-in get All-Star Butler = boost defense big (Butler/Biyombo) while keep elite offense (Butler for McCollum)

- get 2 young starter with Chicago native Okafor and Harkless + 4th and 20th pick to rebuild as fast as possible
- draft best possible prospects with picks except C (4th, 16th, 20th, 38th pick)

- McCollum is the ball-handling 3pt SG Simmons needs at the backcourt
- sign vet FA PF & C
- playoff contender within 1 year, sky's the limit

15 May 2017 02:08:28
I think you should cut the Magic out. The Blazers already have a starting Center, that's an over pay for Biyombo, and the Blazers could use some cap relief.

Then the 76ers should give up one or two more small assets to th Bulls.

That would make the trade a lot more sensible for the Bulls and Blazers.

14 May 2017 20:10:13
Minnesota Twolves offseason

-Nikola Pekovic medically retires

-Waive Jordan Hill

-Lottery: land in the top 3

-Trade top 3 pick and Andrew Wiggins to Chicago for Jimmy Butler

-Trade Ricky Rubio to Orlando for Mario Hezonja and #25 pick

•Draft Moritz Wagner (Michigan)

•Free Agency:
-Sign Kyle Lowry 3yr 76m (takes less for a chance at ring)
-Sign Arron Afflalo 2yr MLE

PG: Lowry, Dunn, Jones
SG: LaVine, Afflalo
SF: Butler, Hezonja
PF: Dieng, Bjelica, Wagner
C: Towns, Aldrich.

14 May 2017 21:09:56
I don't think they should trade for Butler, but no way should they give up more than Wiggins for him. Also, if you trade for Wiggins, why trade Rubio for a pick and a young player rather than an estsblished veteran?

14 May 2017 21:26:41
Minny shouldn't rush
They better keep the young talent, If they get the 3rd pick in the lottery and they can draft Ball, Fullz or Jackson.

And i believe Wiggins will have a break out year next season.

14 May 2017 21:53:52
Jimmy Butler is really good but he's not worth Wiggins and a top 3 pick. O guarantee if Minnesota offered that Chicago would take that in a heartbeat.

14 May 2017 22:23:59
If Bulls can land De'Aaron Fox with wolves #6 pick I'm fine with Butler deal.

14 May 2017 23:15:24
U think lowry could get more then 25 mill a year?

14 May 2017 23:19:11
Overpay for Butler. I would offer Wiggins and not much else.

13 May 2017 20:31:25
Magic get - Hawes Telly and Det 2nd

- free up cap space

Pistons get - Payton

- adds young PG

Bucks get - Biyombo and Smith

- Adds more rim protection

Rose(sign to 1year)



13 May 2017 03:02:32

•Hornets get Evan Fournier, #25 pick, and a future 2nd

Draft Bam Adebayo
Walker, Free agent
Fournier, Bellinelli
Batum, Lamb
Williams, Adebayo
Zeller, Kaminsky

•Magic get MKG and #11 pick

Draft Malik Monk and Frank Ntilikana
Payton, Ntilikana
Monk, Hezonja
MKG, Ross
Gordon, Free agent
Biyombo or Vucevic.

13 May 2017 07:42:37
I think their is a deal their possibly could also go

Hornets get:
Payton and 25th

Magic get:

Hornets get a back up pg who fits better with the shooters on this team and can keep the pace when Walker is on the bench and they can draft any of Adebayo, Ferguson, Diallo. Orlando may have to include a 2nd as well.

Magic get the best available Pg and then draft best available player no matter of position as they need to fill so many holes.

13 May 2017 12:29:45
I like this deal, well done.

13 May 2017 14:13:18
That's a solid deal. Nothing too over the top, and both teams wind up with rosters that are better fleshed out.

13 May 2017 23:45:14
Not terrible but I think Hornets should be getting a little more. Not sure how willing Magic would be to part with Vucevic but if I'm the Hornets I wouldn't mind pairing him with Kemba. Hornets certainly need to make some moves since they aren't very good and don't have any high-level prospects like most teams near the bottom.

11 May 2017 13:16:52
If Orlando can move up in the draft

Orlando: Bledsoe+Bender

Phoenix: Biyombo+ rnd pick Orl(draft J Jackson)

Phoenix draft Ball or Fulzz with the second pick

C: T Chandler/ Len
SF: J Jackson/ Warren
SG: Booker/ Knight/Dudley
PG: Ball/Knight

11 May 2017 13:52:04
If Orl move up I doubt theyed trade as they need a star if they did then lakers don't get their pick which would mean Sixers do and I'd rather trade the 1st pick for the 4th and 5th and draft Tatum and Fox and fill two needs for Orlando better pg and a scoring sf so two star potential players.
Sixers add Fultz to have a big 3 or 4 depending on how Saric and Simmons gel.

11 May 2017 14:01:28
Why would Orlando give up on landing a star for an injury prone Bledsoe and Bender who doesn't seem to be anything more then the prototypical euro Big Man.

11 May 2017 16:00:38
But his name is Dragan. they'd have the market cornered when one of the theme parks inevitably opens a GOT section.

10 May 2017 14:13:42
Mil - Fournier, Henzonja, and 2018 1st (top 10 protected)

Orl - Parker, Telly, and Vaughn

- Mil adds shooters for Giannis

- Orl takes a shot on Parker and will most likely keep their 2018 pick

Mil drafts - Lydon
Orl drafts - Monk

Brogdon - Delly
Fournier - Snell
Middleton - Henzonja
Giannis - Lydon
Henson - Maker

Payton - Augustine
Monk - Ross
Parker - FA
Gordon - Telly
Vucevic - Biyombo

10 May 2017 15:47:05
I don't understand why Magic take this risk especially when they could get likely just get Tatum at #4 who has a similar style game to Parker. I don't see a team giving up anything significant for Parker at this point.

06 May 2017 23:44:29

If Laker pick conveys to sixers this year(53.1% cance it will), then the lakers 2019 #1 automatically goes to Orlando. This leaves the Lakers without a #1 in 2019 and only a late first via rockets this year.

Sixers get: Russell
Lakers get: kings unprotected 2019 #1 and Okafor.

07 May 2017 14:24:18
No from Lakers.

08 May 2017 16:24:18
No from Sixers.

05 May 2017 04:44:54
Pels Young

Lakers Ajinca


Pels Payton

Magic Hill

05 May 2017 07:25:42
Terrible for the Magic. They need to package players and picks to get better pieces so if they do deals it will be for unproven young guys or to move up in the draft.

05 May 2017 03:40:16
Bulls get Fournier Biyombo Thomas
Knicks get Wade Bosh
Orlando get Lee Rondo Noah Payne
Heat get Augustin O'Quinn Watson-Released



Bosh won't retire so Heat move on to pay Gallo & Milsap 20mil


CP3 joins forces with Bosh Melo and Wade for 4yr 100mil


05 May 2017 04:29:09
Why would Orlando do that? They give up their best player and get nothing of value.

05 May 2017 07:49:45
Bulls landing Fournier and Biyombo are guys who have potential to help build around Butler but they could do with a better pg.

Fournier is a good starter in the right system or a 6th man at worst on a playoff team. Why would Orlando trade that for Noah whose contract maybe as bad as Biyombo's but Biyombo has more value as he can stay healthy and if he's used right could be a productive starter in today's go small NBA. Rondo is bad locker room guy and they have a player like him in Payne. Lee is on a steep decline and Payne has failed to make any impact.
Orlando would need a lot of picks after taking those four players.

This would be great for the Knicks if both wade and bosh were in their prime otherwise why do it they should be adding young guys to build around Porzingis use their pick to add someone to complement him say a pg like Fox and trade Melo to fill their other needs.

Heat add two backup players who both had bad seasons which out of all the deals does make sense considering they can't play bosh so they get something for him adding depth but still don't think anyone will wanna trade for Bosh if he can't play.

04 May 2017 14:19:16
Luol Deng and Julius Randle

DJ Augustin, Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja

04 May 2017 14:33:03
THe best part Is this laker season fan thinks this is a realistic trade. Lovely.

04 May 2017 15:13:53
Every time i get mad at the Asik contract, i look at the Deng contract and feel slightly better. And it is always funny watching Laker fans draw up trade proposals to get out of it.

04 May 2017 15:26:47
Gordon is the most valuable player in the deal and you have the Magic taking on Deng's contract. The Magic would want no part of this offer.

04 May 2017 16:12:24
To add to this. Randle is in the final year of his contract, and will be looking at a significant, undeserved raise. So essentially, the two best pieces are Gordon, then Mario, then Randle, then DJ. deng is just awful.

Not to mention, the lakers are giving like 5 million too much in order for this to work. Just stupid.

04 May 2017 17:52:12
I disagree that Gordon and herzonja are better them randle. I don't think there's an arguement for any of the three to be clearly the better player.

This ultimately, as already said, comes down to randle needing a new contract and not enough going to Orlando to take on the deng contract.
