Clippers off season.

Waive all their cap holds.

Trade Gallinari + Miami 2021 first rounder to Sacramento for Bjelica in a salary dump to create just enough room for 2 max salary slots. Also creates a $17 mil trade exception for the Clippers.

Sign Leonard and Walker to max deals
Use MLE on Millsap
Use BLE on Robin Lopez

Walker/ Shamet
SGA/ Williams
Leonard/ Thornwell
Millsap/ Bjelica
Lopez/ Harrell

Use trade exception plus Philly 1st rounder to fill in any voids at the trade deadline.

I would take that team over Lebron/ AD/ Jimmy Butler/ all vet minimums.

15 Jun 2019 17:25:25
Never happen, Gallo has a positive trade value can get late 1st if they need to dump. Why pay MAX for a guard when LAC has three young guards two that made All Rookie 2nd team.

15 Jun 2019 17:42:04
Look who has a pick in the late first round that will trade for Gallinari. Anyone?

I was actually thinking Sacramento may say no just to not help the Clippers build a super team.

15 Jun 2019 17:52:50
2 2nd team all rookie players aren’t going to give you a championship.

15 Jun 2019 18:22:46
IND and UTA can both use a sweet shooting forward or any contending team. LAC will not trade Gallo unless they need the 2nd MAX slot. Come the Feb trade deadline if LAC is not contending expect them to trade Gallo and Trez both are expiring and will help any contender.

13 Jun 2019 23:22:40
I believe someone already posted this but this makes a lot of sense if Nets wants Harris

Nets - Harris (s&t)
76ers - Russell (s&t)

Nets sign Irving
Draft Thybulle and Gafford


Reddick/Schofield(2nd round)

14 Jun 2019 01:07:34
Irving only going to play with russell.

14 Jun 2019 01:35:47
Actually it makes no sense because if this was a possibility, then the Nets would not have to trade Crabbe's salary to get Kyrie and Harris.

Nets can straight out sign Harris now, why help Philly get DLo? Let all those assets Philly used to get Harris go to waste.

14 Jun 2019 02:05:43
Don’t think the sixers line up would look like that, but yea I agree with the trade.

14 Jun 2019 02:55:27
Fredman 76ers can also sign DLo outright.

14 Jun 2019 06:27:59
NBA16, true. But it would require waiving all the teams cap holds which includes retaining the Bird rights to JJReddick and TJ McConnell. So you can kiss away resigning them as well.

So Philly would be looking at

PG DLo/?
SG Simmons/ Smith
SF Butler/?
PF Simmons/ Bolden
C Embiid/?

13 Jun 2019 03:49:18
If LAC strikes out on the big free agents, any chance they undo the deadline trade for a sign and trade with Tobias Harris? Giving Shamet, a 1st rounder and the Miami pick back to Philly

13 Jun 2019 05:35:23
No way the Clips take it though.

13 Jun 2019 06:46:43
Or they can just sign him back.

12 Jun 2019 19:14:02
Clippers strikeout on KL

Mem-Gallo (pos trade value), Trez (pos trade value and Phi 2020 1st

Clips- JAREN JACKSON JR. & Chandler Parsons.

12 Jun 2019 19:33:11
Never going to happen. Jackson is untouchable. I also don’t think that Memphis is trying to get older.

12 Jun 2019 19:52:45
They can trade Gallo for a late 1st, Trez is 25 yrs. and still getting better lastly they unload Parsons and his awful contract.

12 Jun 2019 19:58:46
Parsons contract is coming to end and Grizz won’t be a free agent destination anytime soon. Keep JJJ and pair him with Morant. Memphis only chance of getting stars will be through the draft.

12 Jun 2019 20:46:57
Parsons is an expiring contract this year. They’re better off taking on bad money with it for assets than trying to get off of it. They’re in year two of a rebuild this makes absolutely no sense for them.

12 Jun 2019 21:04:05
Memphis will flip conely for a draft pick have 3 young core.

12 Jun 2019 00:10:25
OKC / 76ers

Noel and the 21st pick to

Philadelphia for Johan Bolden for 2nd round picks 33, 34, and 54.

12 Jun 2019 04:25:30
Philly won't trade up to 1st round. 2nd round picks don't have cap holds and they need all the cap space they can get for Butler and Harris. Plus in a weak draft class there's not much difference between 21 and 33.

12 Jun 2019 04:33:06
Wasnt noel a sixer already?

12 Jun 2019 05:45:55
I believe that's when Philly started tanking. Jrue Holiday for Noel, even though Noel was going to miss whole season.

12 Jun 2019 12:33:07
More likely they sign a center with the MLE than give up assets for a back up with a bad attitude.

12 Jun 2019 14:14:06
Thunder can't trade Noel. He would have to accept his player option first and he is likely going to turn it down and try to get more than a minimum contract.

24 May 2019 15:52:46
So Ben Simmons latest trade idea is actually one I really like

Boston sends Tatum
Philly sends Simmons

Pair that with the Hayward and 2 first rounders for Conley deal and you can go

Ben Simmons
Al Horford

That’s pretty dynamic with some good floor spacing around Simmons.
Good for Philly too, way more spacing at the wing gives Embiid the space he needs.

24 May 2019 16:32:44
Hard to win a title when you have someone (Simmons) who won't shoot from outside and someone (Smart) who shouldn't shoot from outside in the same lineup.

24 May 2019 18:32:28
Smart shot .364 from 3 this year on his normal volume and his form looks good. He’s working hard to change his game.

24 May 2019 22:23:09
He is a career 31 from 3. 37 from the field. He should never shoot.

25 May 2019 01:16:46
That’s actually just below average, we as an audience are pretty disallusioned with what realistic percentages are.

05 Jun 2019 15:31:58
MAYBE this happens if Harris/ Butler walk, but if they don't, the Sixers need a starting PG in return in any Simmons trade.

20 May 2019 02:36:28
76ers / Thunder Trade #1

Thunder trade Ferguson and Diallo and 1st Round Pick (21st Overall) to

Philadelphia for Jonah Bolden and two 2nd Round Picks (33rd and 34th) to OKC.

We can't afford our 1st Round Pick.

Cavaliers / Thunder Trade #2

Send those two 2nd Round Picks to Cleveland along with Steve Adams for Thompson and Larry Nance Jr.

Getting both Bolden and Nance Jr. we can lock up the 4 position squarely and have depth at all positions. I think Noel will move on.

We need to do this on Draft Day.

20 May 2019 07:29:38
Okc traded last year's first and next year's. They have to draft this year.

20 May 2019 12:43:55
I don’t the Cavs have any interest in taking on Adams’s contract.

19 May 2019 07:21:54
let's say 76ers don't resign Jimmy or Reddick
Warriors create more cap space
J Simmons

Warriors let KD go
Keep Winning More Rings
Resign Thompson 5yrs Max
Sign Ariza 3yrs 24mil
Sign Zubac 3yrs 18mil

19 May 2019 09:56:32
I don't think they are going to trade Iggy. He will retire a Warrior imo.

19 May 2019 11:35:53
Why would Philly trade a 22 year old Simmons, who is not even close to his prime years for a 35 year old jiggy, who is pretty close to retirement? No chance this happens.

19 May 2019 12:54:05
Philly wouldn't mind trading jonathon simmons for iggy.

19 May 2019 13:58:26
JoeB, not Ben, Jonathan Simmons.

Iffy is much more valuable to the Dubs. The guy steps up huge every spring.

19 May 2019 15:04:54
My bad, boys. Sorry I missed the J. Lol.

17 May 2019 20:06:03
If AD decides to stay or gets traded to the Celtics or Lakers and Philly decides to build around Simmons as Embiid is injury prone and older:

Knicks get Embiid

76ers get: Pick No. 3, Mavs Picks 2021 and 2023, Knox, Ntilikina, Smith and Robinson

Knicks sign KD or Irving with the help of Embiid

76ers use the Bucks blueprint and resign Redick, Harris and Butler. Also add Lopez for 4 years with the MLE.

Simmons - Smith
Redick - Barrett - Frank
Butler - Smith
Harris - Knox - Bolden
Lopez - Robinson

Your thoughts?

17 May 2019 21:30:56
Embiid isn’t getting traded.

17 May 2019 21:32:50
Knicks players have little value. They would be bottom of rotation players at best in Philly.

16 May 2019 10:11:15

PHI: B.Beal, D.Melton
- get a star guard who will be a better fit on their roster
- resign Butler & Harris go over the cap


PHX: B.Simmons, I.Mahinmi
- get a point guard that could fit in nicely with Booker instead of taking one at 6


WAS: 6th pick PHX, 24th pick PHI, T.Warren, T.Johnson (exp)

go full rebuild
draft Coby White, Jaxson Hayes & Mathysse Thybulle


16 May 2019 13:15:47
This isn't enough for Washington for Beal. Phoenix isn't giving up enough to be the team getting Simmons back either.

16 May 2019 16:16:39
Take Phoenix out. Make it Washington getting Simmons and the 24th and Philly getting Beal and Satoransky.

It won't happen cause the Sixers are still in on Ben (evidenced by them retaining Brett Brown), but its way more likely than the original.

16 May 2019 03:09:20
I know this site is crazy low on Ben Simmons but I still think the league still values him as a soon-to-be All NBA guy.

76ers send: Ben Simmons

Heat send: Josh Richardson and Justice Winslow

The sixers get two reasonable contracts with 3 years left, one guy a really good floor spacer and the other a lead initiator, both wing defenders. This would give them flexibility between choosing Jimmy or Tobias or, if they wanted to go deep into the tax, both. Either way, this would really space the team out and still provide super switchy athletic defense.

The Heat get a young stud to build the team around who is also well liked by other players. Combine that with Miami’s allure and they’ll be able to lure the best FAs.

16 May 2019 05:31:42
Jalex all nva? Really?

16 May 2019 13:19:13
How do you say he's seen as an all nba guy and then think that josh richardson and Winslow would be enough to get him?

Shiller- yes he was an allstar as a 21/ 22 year old. There's no reason to believe that he isn't going to build on that. The potential is still there. The shot is the only thing missing in his game right now. Defiently something that can improve.

16 May 2019 13:54:02
The fact that Philly is accepting trade offers for Simmons SIGNALS to the rest of the league the Philly believes Simmons will not improve. So why would you expect other teams to pay franchise-type player prices?

16 May 2019 16:11:13
Philly isn't accepting trade offers for Simmons, so that's not a fact. Every time they've entered in trade talks, Embiid and Simmons have strictly been off limits. That's why they got Butler and not Kawhi.

16 May 2019 16:34:15
@SimmonOrBust and @Fredman those are both solid points but I think you’re both missing that it’s the situation in Philadelphia that is holding him and him being on a different team is what will elevate to an All NBA guy. I don’t think the jump shot is ever going to happen, but if BS was allowed to play Point-Center and have everything go through him, he’ll elevate to top 10 quite easily, Philly can negotiate based on that. But if he stays in Philly he’ll never become that because there’s already a dominant center and too many other pieces that need the ball in the half court, so moving him at this price would make him better. I could see Miami paying more, maybe some sort of pick (except they have like none left) but this is the right ballpark.

16 May 2019 20:22:05
Jalex, so what it appears you are saying is the BS needs to be the top talent on a team so that the offense flows through him (much like Jokic) . The problem with that is that Simmons is not talented enough to carry a team to the Finals.

17 May 2019 02:23:40
Fredman, I’m not saying he needs to be the best guy, in saying spacing will hold any star back in the modern NBA. If Simmons has 4 spacers around him and a good secondary playmaker, I think he will be good enough to lead a team to the finals.

16 May 2019 02:45:03
Lakers and 76ers Trade

Lakers get Ben Simmons

76ers get Lonzo Ball,Josh Hart and the #4 draft Pick
resign Butler and Harris
draft De'Andre Hunter

Lonzo Ball
Jimmy Bulter
De'Andre Hunter
Tobias Harris
Joel Embiid

I think this allows Embiid to truly take over. Long run, I don't like Simmons and Embiid together.

16 May 2019 05:32:30
4th pick would be Garland and ball would be his backup at best.

16 May 2019 13:20:36
I think ball would need to be replaced with kuzma or Ingram.

16 May 2019 16:13:07
I like that for Philly and Ben is my favorite player on the team.

17 May 2019 01:16:00
I agree with SimmonsOrBust: Ingram instead of Ball in the deal.

Then the Lakers should look to move Ball. However, I have no idea his trade value. To Indiana for Sabonis? To Phoenix for Warren? To Miami for Winslow?

15 May 2019 09:22:30
Clippers - Hawks

Clippers gets:
#8 pick

Hawks gets:
2020 1st rd pick (76ers)
2021 1st rd pick (Heat)

15 May 2019 12:41:12
Doesn’t seem worth the 8th pick.

12 May 2019 12:30:57
May Raports loose on Philly?

May Leonard listen to Mavs?

Pistons can draft a good Center with er 1st pick:

Mavs strech provision of Lee.

-Hardaway, Jackson, #2 2019

Sign Leonard Max and Beverly 3y25m and there is still the exception to sign Shumpert.

Drummond, Powell, Merji
Zinger, Maxi, Anto
Leonard, FinneyS, Macon
Doncic, Shumpert, Harris
Beverly, Brunson, Barea

Everybody can score and the defense would be great!

15 May 2019 08:29:44
Kawhi ain’t coming to Dallas. I wish.

08 May 2019 15:26:39
Obviously post trade both teams would need to make another move or two to maximize their teams, but what about

Jamal Murray for Ben Simmons.

The Nuggets make another move or two to add some more shooting afterward. The 76ers do everything they can to keep Harris and Butler plus try to add someone like Beverly that can be another secondary facilitator, shoot and defend.

08 May 2019 16:13:26
Let's face it Simmons is a good reg. Season player, and a below avg post season player. The guy disappears way to often. Murray seems to get better as the stakes get higher. Take away being the #1 pick and all the hype and Simmons is nothing more than a role player.

08 May 2019 16:55:13
I wouldn't trade Murray for Simmons. Murray has all the tools to be as good as any PG in the NBA.

That said, calling Simmons a role player is not true at all. He's a 22 year old, 6'10, point guard all star in his second year. He's only going to get better. 17/ 9/ 8, PER of 20, and a solid defender. None of that screams role player. It says he's young. Maybe (likely) he never turns into a #1 option, but how many of those are there in the NBA? Being a second or third option isn't a horrible thing.

08 May 2019 17:44:38
Rkeene- how does that trade help Denver? isn't a younger cheaper version of Simmons on their roster in mpj?

08 May 2019 18:51:31
I don’t see Murray as a top flight pg in the NBA. He’s more of a combo that needs protected on the defensive end. So does Jokic. There fatal flaw is going to be playing teams like the Rockets and Warriors that are just going to force both guys to defend on the perimeter. Now, if you have the right personnel, you can protect one of them, but they can’t protect both and with Millsap on the decline, they don’t have the switchable defenders they need. Throw in Simmons and that’s no longer a problem. He’s the defender they need and with Jokic, they can utilize Simmons cutting, utilized his transition ability, let him stay inside to get offensive boards, and they don’t need his spacing. He also takes a lot of pressure off of Jokic to create everything for everyone else.

Murray can create his own offense, play on and off ball, the Sixers have guys to protect him, he fits with Embiid, and he’s the 1 on 1 offensive player that they need.

09 May 2019 13:35:45
Why would you take the ball out of Jokic's hands and put it in Simmons hands?

07 May 2019 22:35:32
If Raptors beat 76ers:

Philly completely goes into win now mode and trades Ben Simmons as he destroys the spacing:

Suns get Ben Simmons and J. Simmons
76ers get Jackson, Bridges and Suns own Pick No. 1 protected. If Suns Pick is No. 1 Philly gets Bucks Pick and Suns 2020 1st rounder unprotected.

Why 76ers like it:
They can draft Ja Morant to contribute immediatly at PG. Additionally they add depth at the wing to back up Butler, Redick and Harris. They will be true contenders with this roster and still have young players for the future.

Suns do it to get the perfect PG next to Booker. Elite D and court vision, with really high upside. In 3-4 years that might be the best backcourt.

07 May 2019 22:54:48
The lottery is a week from today. By the time any trade would happen, they would know where they're picking.

08 May 2019 00:10:31
Morant probably already better than simmons suns say no thanks.

08 May 2019 01:57:51
I can see it happening but it’ll seem like the same thing will happen w the Suns. Ayton is an even worse 3pt shooter than Embiid therefore the spacing will be just ass bad. The only way I can the spacing issue being fixed if Simmons played with a big man like Porzingis.

08 May 2019 02:14:49
It’s not terrible value, but This doesn’t help them win now. Jackson’s a recovery project, and rookie Point Guards have a huge learning curve and that’s time the 6ers would not have in this scenario.

08 May 2019 03:59:51
Simmons and Simmons are not worth that much. not even close.

08 May 2019 16:21:33
No way I give up even a top 3 pick for him. Maybe Jackson straight across. Simmons disappears way to often, and he really hasn't improved since he's come in the league.

09 May 2019 00:17:18
How is a guy who hasn't played a minute in the nba already better than an all star shizzee.

07 May 2019 09:27:03
76ers offseason:

Butler: max
Harris: 4 years 112 million
Ennis: 3 years 18 million
Redick: 2 years 16 million
Scott: 3 years 18 million
McConnell: 2 years for the minimum
Boban: 2 years 8 million

Trade if White is available at 9:

Atlanta gets No. 24, 34 and 2020 OKC 1st rounder, 2022 76ers first rounder top 20 protected

Simmons, White, TJ
Redick, Smith,
Butler, Ennis
Harris, Scott
Embiid, Boban, Bolden

07 May 2019 13:25:14
Not enough to move up to #9.

07 May 2019 18:50:14
I also thought the Hawks might request more. But as they are set at PG, SG and have a top 5 Pick they might not be interested in a player like White. If he's available there won't be great talent at other positions. So why mit trading for future picks. And the 2022 1st rounder might be really good value because of the high school players.

26 Apr 2019 10:40:40
Raps/ Clips

To TOR - Gallo, Robinson, 2020 Philly 1st

To LAC - S&T Leonard

If the Raps have it on good authority that Claw is going to leave to sign in LA, pitching an S&T that nets him the extra year and dollars may be attractive for both parties.

Clips move Gallo’s contract, which definitely opens up another max slot and additional money even after landing their top target.

Raps get a young player in Robinson and a pick. Gallo’s contract is expiring, so it lines up perfectly time wise with Lowry, Serge and Gasol’s deals to clear 90% of their cap space at the end of next year and go total rebuild.

26 Apr 2019 13:12:58
I’m pretty sure you can’t give the extra year in a s and t.

26 Apr 2019 16:16:24
It also doesn't matter. Anything more than 2 years will be supermax extension time.

25 Apr 2019 23:41:15
OKC Heat

OKC get Olynyk, James Johnson, Waiters and 2 or 3 1sts
Heat get Westbrook

OKC takes on bad contracts all of them are 12 mil or more a year and go until 2021 and none of the players are worth that much. So the Thunder will be adding young prospects over the years with the picks and by 2021 FA the only players that will still be guaranteed a contract is PG with his player option and the players still on rookie deals so they could open them selves a lot of cap space losing these 3 contracts plus Schroder and Adams. To add quality players possibly All Stars to George if he accepts the PO and the Young Prospects they get with the picks over the years. Some might think 3 1sts is to much but i don't. For half a year of guarnteed thobias harris 76ers gave up 2 1sts and 2 2nds so i don't think 3 1sts for westbrook while dumping 3 bad contracts is bad even though westbrooks contract isn't the best.

Heat gets that allstar/ superstar whatever u consider Russ that can fill the seats that they haven't had in a while. They had Wade to fill seats this year but next year they don't have that seat filler that Russ is. Yes They take his contract but then they have 1 bad contract vs 3 bad contracts and the 1 bad contract is an all star vs 3 bad contract role players.

Let me know your thoughts.

26 Apr 2019 01:40:24
Miami has a whole starting 5 of young, hungry and ready to take over for the exiting vets. Riley wouldn't lose cap flexibility for RW at his age, VS where the age of his team is at.

25 Apr 2019 22:58:02
Doubtful but here's an idea if Butler decides to leave 76ers but agrees to a S&T
OKC 76ers

OKC Butler
76ers Westbrook

I highly doubt this would happen for several reasons, but a duo of Butler and George on the Thunder would be nice.

26 Apr 2019 01:41:28
Wall and RW are nearly the same amount to move, and degree of difficulty.

26 Apr 2019 03:14:34
The duo of Simmons abs Westbrook would be absolutely horrendous.

26 Apr 2019 13:21:21
Agree with BMiller, I’m not sure how that offense could function. It’d just be Embiid and Simmons in the paint watching Russ dribble straight into a triple team every time he drives. Not to mention that I’d rather have the ball in Simmons’s hands. He at least knows his limitations and doesn’t try to force a ton of stuff that won’t work.

26 Apr 2019 16:32:24
You just described one of Mitchells final plays VS rockets. Dribbled straight into a triple team, and had the ball ripped from his hands.
