ORL-PHI (Trade deadline deal)

Vucevic for W. Chandler and Future 1st.

Philly gets anchor for second unit front line and Orlando gets future asset and opening for Bamba minutes.

ORL-BKN (deadline deal)

Vucevic for Dinwiddie, Dudley, Musa

If Brooklyn is contending for low playoff spot, it gives them a veteran offensive anchor. Orlando, if out of contention, gets young prospect and veteran at a position of more need.

13 Oct 2018 16:28:58
Philly needs shooting and have amir Johnson behind embid already who is solid, Brooklyn has Allen.

14 Oct 2018 16:23:10
I don’t see Brooklyn giving up Musa, and the fit/ need in Philly is not there. Trades aren’t horrible from a fairness standpoint, they just don’t make sense for Philly/ Nets.

11 Oct 2018 15:35:27

PHI- Jimmy Butler
MIN- Robert Covington, Jarred Bayless, Frank Korkmaz, 2019 1st unprotected

C- Joel Embiid
PF- Dario Saric
SF- Jimmy Butler
SG- JJ Reddick
PG- Ben Simmons

C- Amir Johnson
PF- Mike Muscala
SF- Wilson Chandler
SG- Zhaire Smith
PG- Markelle Fultz

11 Oct 2018 16:05:36
76ers can't trade their own 2019 first-rounder because it might convey to Boston.

11 Oct 2018 16:56:34
Phili can trade their 2019 pick. They get the less favorable of their's or Sacramento's (and Boston gets the better of the two) . Phili could trade whatever they get in a trade now.

That said, I'm not sure Minny is getting a first with that package at this point.

11 Oct 2018 14:51:47
Minnesota gets Smith, Korver, Chandler, and Philly's 2019 1st

The Cavs get Bayless(exp) and 2 Philly 2nds

The 76ers get Butler

04 Oct 2018 01:28:05
Suns send: Warren
Receive: McConnell, Bayless (waive), 3m cash, '19 & '20 2nds
Get a solid PG and clear some cap space.

Twolves send: Butler
Receive: Covington, Warren, '19 1st
Get two good wings who are under contract and fit their time line, also pick up a 1st.

76ers send: Covington, McConnell, Bayless, '19 1st, '19 & '20 2nds, 3m cash
Receive: Butler
Starting 5 of Simmons, Reddick/Fultz, Butler, Saric, Embiid would be aiming for an ECF appearance at the least

04 Oct 2018 11:34:34
Philadephia's 2019 first-rounder is untradeable because it may convey to Boston.

05 Oct 2018 04:18:06
Boston gets the better of the kings/ philly ‘19 1st unless the kings pick is #1 overall. In this trade they would be sending out the remaining kings/ philly pick.

28 Sep 2018 18:23:10
If Minnesota gets the “cold shoulder” around the league on trade request for teams stars in return.

Sixers and TWolves

76ers get Butler

Minns gets Covington, Bayless and 2021 Miami unprotected pick

They get a butler replacement, an expiring contract and a good asset for the future.

28 Sep 2018 20:22:59
Minnesota only does this deal if all else fails. They will keep trying to get a better deal, even if it means Butler continues to sit out.

28 Sep 2018 22:39:45
Dieng is going to go with butler wolves might not have another opportunity like this to ditch him.

28 Sep 2018 23:07:12
Wolves are looking for a star player as cornerstone of the deal. They are not going to get a star of Butler's caliber, but top 35-75 player on a multi-year contract. Moving Dieng is a secondary goal and will be used for salary matching or if they have to take a lesser star. Other secondary goals would be young players on rookie contracts and/ or draft picks.
Covington does not make the top 75 threshold so I say T-Wolves pass.

29 Sep 2018 01:23:53
I read that media story as well. Both rumors could be argued as having merit I think.

30 Sep 2018 10:04:33
BTec is right. ( (yeah I said it. lol) )
They will end up taking what they can get and I don’t see a better trade then my previous post. But now watching Fultz and Korkmaz play, I see why they will hold on to those two. But the rest are traceable, IMO. Covington is on a great contract and a perfect 3&D guy for Minnesota. Bcoz Wiggins still doesn’t play defense.

26 Sep 2018 14:37:58
The Kings are looking to trade for G. Dieng

Three team SIMPLE trade:
TWolves Sixers and Kings

Minn get W. Chandler K. Koufos and S. Labissiere plus 2021 unprotected 1st Philly (Miami)

Kings get G. Dieng and M. Muscala (2019 2nd Rnd Pick) Philly

Sixers get J. Butler

? Thoughts?

26 Sep 2018 16:19:47
Terrible for Minnesota. They pass every day and twice on Sundays.

26 Sep 2018 16:20:00
How do the Kings even remotely benefit from that deal?

26 Sep 2018 19:37:21
Who said kings want dieng?

26 Sep 2018 19:58:37
NBA ProDaily. the kings showed interest in being the third team facilitator in any Jimmy Butler trade if they can receive G. Dieng without losing any major assets.

Minnesota would benefit from this trade bcoz they receive a SF that plays defense and is on an expiring contract. To include a C/ PF that is also on an expiring contract, with a young PF they can groom behind T. Gibson for the future. It gives them cap space to make a run at Klay Thompson in 2019.

26 Sep 2018 20:17:07
That same article also said the kings traded their 2019 1st, and would be asking that for their trouble of taking Dieng. That's a lottery projected 2019 1st.

25 Sep 2018 05:44:16
Three Team Trade
Sixers Heat and TWolves

Minnesota get T. Johnson (heat), M. Muscala and J. Bayless (both 76ers) PLUS-Miami’s unprotected 2021 1st round pick

Sixers get J. Butler and G. Dieng (both Minn)

Heat get W. Chandler and R. Covington PLUS- (2) 2nd Rnd pick from Philly

( ( ( ( (THOUGHTS) ) ) )

25 Sep 2018 12:43:32
Why would the Sixers want to help the heat.

25 Sep 2018 15:03:43
In every trade. The team making the best proposal is doing it to propel its team into the finals or straight win a championship.
Philly would be helping themselves more then them helping the Heat.

PG Simmons VS Dragic
SG Reddick Richardson
SF Butler Covington
PF Saric Scott
C Embiid Whiteside

So Btec You tell me WHO wins in this trade? Stop looking at what’s directly in front of you and see the BIGGER PICTURE.

25 Sep 2018 17:00:16
They are east rivals it was a simple question. The rude response if the capital letters are meant to serve as an indicator of shouting? Take that somewhere else please. I wasn't mocking or criticizing it was a serious question. Calm down.

26 Sep 2018 08:07:25
Btec your question was meaningless. In a trade NO team is trying to help the other teams but you got to make salaries match. that’s exactly why I said think about your question before you ask it.

26 Sep 2018 15:03:42
Are you really so dense that you are clueless as to how trades work in the NBA? There is no way in hell your proposal would ever be accepted by any of these teams. Stop trolling me, and don't ever think your smart enough to five me advice on asking dumb questions or type capital letters signaling yelling at people. It's called tact. Salaries don't have to match in a trade they need to be 120% of each other. I also said nothing about salary or matching. Stop being a d*ck to me please. I don't know you and this is textbook, dishonest trolling. Show some character, be yourself. Unless your an @sshole.

26 Sep 2018 15:06:41
Your giving the heat chandler, and a 2nd for T. johnson. That's an overpay for Johnson. Learn how nba value works and no one will say things about your proposals that apparently turn you into an a$$!

28 Sep 2018 10:37:53
Btec your funny. I don’t need to TROLL any one. I’ve played and coached two levels above you, so YES, I do know what I’m talking about. And the trades I post make sense for the teams involved TRYING to move unwanted players. And yes I do know the 120% salary trade rule. In no way am I being a D1CK to you. Or is it that you can’t take criticism but ENJOY being a critic? Trolling you? For what? I only express my opinion of the CRITICS being negative and EXPLAIN why I see it differently then them.

25 Sep 2018 05:16:58
Three Team Trade
( ( (Sixers Heat and TWolves) ) )

Heat get Taylor Johnson (Heat), M. Muscala (76ers) and.

25 Sep 2018 05:30:25
Sorry guys, it’s hard to post from your smart phone! Lol.

25 Sep 2018 02:37:47
Kyler krover to philly for Jerryd Bayless (buyout),2019 sixers 1st top 18 protected

25 Sep 2018 12:26:05
Korver would be so deadly with that team you imagine Simmons, reddick, Korver, saric, embid now that’s on offense . Defensive wise could only play Korver or reddiick at different times but if you can get him go for it.

25 Sep 2018 20:03:40
i love the idea of korver in philly but not at the price of a 1st.

23 Sep 2018 12:34:18
Philly and Minnesota trade

Sixers get Jimmy Butler and G. Dienge

TWolves get R. Covington, W. Chandler, J. Bayless and Miami’s 2021 unprotected 1st Rnd Pick

( ( (Note) ) )

I’m a Sixer fan and I think this trade would get approved. But if I was Philly I would rather give the TWolves the Sixers own 2020 1st Rnd Pick.

? Thoughts?

23 Sep 2018 14:12:45
Covington is a slightly above average player. The other players are worthless. No one knows what a pick two years down the road will be worth.
Speculation trades involving Butler don't make sense until the Wolves decide whether they want to remain competitive (veterans in return) or rebuild again (draft picks) .

23 Sep 2018 15:17:31
Super- owner said they want to trade Butler before camp, that starts in 72 hours.

23 Sep 2018 16:21:33
NESN put out an article saying Fultz, Covington, Saric, premium draft picks are off the table for jimmy butler. Said that is straight from sixer brass and brett brown.

25 Sep 2018 03:38:30
Chandler and Bayless are value as an expiring contract to Minn since they will need to resign players this off-season. And any UNPROTECTED 1st round pick is good for any teams draft future.
And Shilled41 your right. THE OWNER wants him gone, so in my opinion I think he will be gone by Friday.

Saric and Covington had been offered in the Leonard trade but The Spurs wanted Ben or Joel which wasn’t going to happen.

20 Sep 2018 14:27:23
Wolves/ Sixers:

To PHI - Butler

To MIN - RoCo, Bayless, 2019 Philly first.

20 Sep 2018 16:55:35
I believe that it will take more from PHI to get Butler. 76ers might have to add Saric or Zaire Smith. Steep price for a possible one year rental.

20 Sep 2018 17:14:56
Agreed with Warlock. Hard to see Phili getting Butler without letting go of Covington along with one of Smith or Saric.

21 Sep 2018 00:33:46
If Thibs is the one making the deal he wants to add vets to the line up. While Saric is a good player his defense alongside KAT would be terrible and Smith is a project player that isn't going to have an impact on saving his job after this year if he makes it that far.

21 Sep 2018 00:51:32
Fair enough, Zaire and an additional second then.

Yes, a lot for Philly to give up for a potential rental, but Philly strikes me as a PG13 style landing spot for Butler. Get there, see how good they are, realize you could win a bunch, and stay.

19 Sep 2018 22:35:50
76ers get Butler
Wolves get Covington, Korkmaz, Bayless and two best second rounders of 2019

18 Sep 2018 04:11:06
*Raps get: PF/C Blake Griffin, SG/SF Bruce Brown
*Pistons get: PF/C Serge Ibaka, SF/SG C.J. Miles, SG/PG Malachi Richardson, 2021 2nd

- Raptors do this to get a former All-star Forward who can help distribute the ball and rebound better. Better replacement for Ibaka and is on a long term contract. Also get a young guard who has potential since he was projected first round this year. Do this to improve their chances of a ring this year in a conference that is LeBron-less and can compete better with Boston and Philly. Big 3 of Lowry, Kawhi, and Blake could help them get further in the playoffs if all produce well. But having Blake on a massive contract for long term is risky, but their chances are better if you swap Blake and Ibaka.
-Pistons do this to get Blake off the books. They could clear lots of cap in 2020 with Jackson, Ibaka, Leuer, and galloway coming off the books. Reduces the risky in having bad money in Blake for the next 4 years. Also get Miles, who can help improve their lack of three point shooting since Kennard hasn't proven much. Miles could come off the bench to provide scoring, or start at the 2 or 3 with either Johnson, bullock, Kennard, or Robinson. Pistons do this to prevent a possible bad money situation and Ibaka is not a terrible downgrade from Blake, can spread out to the 3 point line, and possibly better defender for 11 mil less. Richardson is really to match the money and the 2nd is to sweeten the deal. Doubt the Raps would throw in a first since they already traded their own this year.

19 Sep 2018 02:32:00
WHy would the pistons do this, they go from griffin who is arguably their best player to serge who is a considerable downgrade who also has an awful contract. with no real assets in return.

23 Aug 2018 04:14:48
Philly send: Bayless, '19 1st top 24 protected (then converts to 2 seconds)
Receive: Lee
Add shooting to their roster and get rid of Bayless.

NY send: Lee, '19 2nd top 55 protected (won't convey)
Receive: Bayless, Singler, '19 1st, '20 2nd, Cash (cover Singler waive)
Open up an extra 13m in capspace next year, improve this year's pick and get a couple of picks.

OKC send: Singler, Cash, '20 2nd
Receive: '19 2nd (won't convey)
Save a lot of tax and open up a roster spot for buyout candidates.

23 Aug 2018 11:59:57
Okc lmao.

23 Aug 2018 12:01:27
Philly's own 2019 No. 1 goes to Boston if the Sacramento pick turns out to be No. 1 overall.

23 Aug 2018 14:33:21
Lee turns 33 in 2 months. Sixers already have an aging sg in Redick. they don't want to overpay for another. Take on a guranteed $25million for 2 years of Lee? And give up picks? Why do you think sixerers would do this? Give up assests, cap space, and an expiring contract for Lee? I'm not saying Lee is a bad player, he's decent, just not what philly is looking for at your suggested price. But keep posting Lee to Philly.

23 Aug 2018 18:24:02
To repeat what was said prior, top 5 in mid range, over 40% 3, solid perimeter defender, veteran leadership. Again, why would this not be wanted for the sixers? Especially given they have a primary ball handler who can't shoot from 3 feet away from the basket, seems like it would be a solid move.

Especially given the fact that the sixers are only on the books for 42 million next year, this would still allow a max and another near max.

Not sure how you can argue that the sixers shouldn't give up 2 seconds and an expiring for that.

Seems rather foolish.

24 Aug 2018 04:44:50
OKC could just waive and stretch Singler.
Then they could save tax money, have space for a buyout candidate PLUS still get to have their '20 2nd.
As long as we're trading unrealistically, how about:

OKC sends Singler, '20 2nd and cash to Philly
Philly sends Simmons to OKC

Philly saves money next year and can go after some more Max contract free agents
OKC just deals with the tax burden for next year.

24 Aug 2018 04:05:31
Notdrainer, Lee’s a solid shooter, but not a knock down elite 3 point shooter like a Korver or Redick and his defense was subpar last year. If Philly is willing to give up a first and take on multi year salary, there will be better players available.

24 Aug 2018 06:14:40
Lee would be great for Philly it's not like there getting Leonard Klay or Butler.

24 Aug 2018 18:39:43
Rekenne, never said he was elite all time. Specifically said from 3, he was over 40%. He was elite as a midrange shooter. And he is widely considered a solid defender and great leadership presence.

Please, instead of just saying there are better available. name one. 12 mill a year, offers same durability and production, and the sixers would get for an expiring and either super late 1st or 2 seconds.

I can't really think of any.

18 Aug 2018 10:22:54
What trade makes sense and should happen?

1) LA Lakers
Butler for Ingram+ 1rnd pick + deng

Butler for J Brown+ Smart

3) Philly
Butler for Fultz+ W Chandler

Butler for Harris and Gilgeous alexander

18 Aug 2018 11:24:53
The Laker trade really looks promising, since Butler wants to win now. but Minnesota will try to refuse to take Deng.

Boston will want a pick included with Butler

Philly is HIGH on Fultz and would require a pick in case Butler Opts our after next season. (Like Boston)

The Clippers would be shorthanded at SF if they gave up Harris.

If I was Philly, I would do the Fultz but I wouldn’t offer Chandler, I would give Minnesota a 2nd Rnd pick instead.

But these are some very good trade scenarios. Trades that I think Minnesota would take.

18 Aug 2018 11:29:27
1. Not enough for Butler
2. Too much for Butler
3. Not enough for Butler
4. Not enough for Butler.

18 Aug 2018 13:28:55
Good one supercollider. We keep forgetting Brown is considered better than Lebron at this point.

18 Aug 2018 14:14:48
Supercollider such a homer respons.

18 Aug 2018 14:36:53
I think if Butler gets moved it will be near or at the deadline. Maybe Brooklyn, maybe NY. Sixers have an outside shot but Fultz and Chandler aren't enough I don't think.

18 Aug 2018 15:28:56
letsgokncks don't be mad.

Boston trade makes the most sense for the Wolves, but because of the cap Boston would have to refuse that trade. Brown and Smart have more value to Boston's future than for just 1 season of Butler.

Butler will be moved, just not to any of those teams.

18 Aug 2018 18:43:49
Lol I’d take Harris and sga over brown and smart.

13 Aug 2018 01:48:44
Sixers lakers trade

Lakers receive: jerryd bayless, Wilson chandler protected 2019 1st

76ers receive: Brandon ingram, luol deng

13 Aug 2018 22:47:26
Do you honestly think that’s a good deal from the Sixers? They would have to add fultz.

14 Aug 2018 02:42:51
This isn’t a bad trade. I like the fact that Philly gets a Vet and Young weapon of the same position. (teacher and student) but Philly will only give up 1 or 2 second round picks because of Deng having two years remaining on his contract. And they would be helping LA get cap space to sign Leonard and another max player to help LeBron! If I was Phillys GM, No thanks unless they drop the request for a pick!

15 Aug 2018 12:02:08
Ingram will be on the block if he has a bad year but he's an important piece right now.

11 Aug 2018 15:41:08

Sixers get: Porter
Wizards get: Covington, Bayless, Sixers 2019 #1(if goes to Bos, conveys to 2020 #1)

Why Wiz say Yes: next year Walls contract balloons to $38 mill, Beal would be at $28 mill, and Porter at $27 mill. Covington is making only $11 mill on a very team friendly contract for 3 more years. Bayless and his $9 mill expire this year. And add a #1 pick this coming draft or next.
Why Sixers say Yes: Nobody is coming to Philly as a major FA. I love the sixers, and the city, but let's face it, there's more attractive opportunities for these big time NBA stars. So using cap space on an overpaid, yet quality player like Porter makes sense. Porter is just a step down from covington on D, but a much better shooter from deep, which the sixers desperately need.

11 Aug 2018 17:25:26
Convington = Porter i'm not sure sixers do this.

11 Aug 2018 19:33:29
I think Porter is definitely a step up from Covington. he's 3 years younger, shot 44% and 41% from threes the past two seasons on heavy usage, and is a similar defender ( Covington slightly better) . Plus, Porter fills a void. A excellent outside shooter. I realize the salary difference is a big negative, and the first rd pick will probably be 20-26 range, but I think its a reasonable trade.

11 Aug 2018 20:17:25
it seems decent for both sides, its honestly tough to gauge porter’s value. he is a nice 3+D but probably an overpaid 3rd guy unless he can jump to allstar level soon. how either team feels about the possibility of that improvement would decide this deal.

12 Aug 2018 00:03:39
Sixers don’t do this like Shizee said Covington = porter. Although porter most likely has slightly more on court value Covington is on a great contract so I don’t see the sixers giving up a first for a swap of the two I think the Sixers save money for next year.

12 Aug 2018 19:09:24
I’d probably just stick with Covington. I just don’t think Porter is 10 or so million better than Covinton. I don’t think if Philly could go out and get Porter without including Covinton it would make a lot of sense. The more long 3 and D wings are the perfect fit next to Embiid and Simmons and Houston proved they’re also the Warriors Kryptonite. Simmons (Fultz to a point as well) gives you the unique ability to be able to switch almost everything with no liabilities if you have the right personnel around him. The only other team that has that ability would be the Lakers.

03 Aug 2018 22:43:49

How bad does LA want to rid themselves of Deng and is horrible contract? Could sign 2 max players if they do. LA is a star driven big market city, not a "wait for the youth to develop" type town.

Sixers get: Deng(and his 2 years and $$37million guranteed), Ingram

Lakers get: Wilson Chandler($12.5 mill expiring), Bayless($8.6 mill expiring).
Sixers can't draw star free agents, need to develop you guys and surround them with vet role players. Lakers clear an extra $26 million next year to sign 2 max players and another near max deal. Still have Ball, Hart, and Kuzma for youth.. Could work for both teams.

04 Aug 2018 01:29:14
Which ingram? Not the one 1 your referring to sixer fan. Simmons suck. Embiid is 1 injury away from retirement.

04 Aug 2018 02:54:06
Maybe Kuzma but not Ingram.

04 Aug 2018 07:08:59
Maybe they wait till draft when Deng has one year left.

04 Aug 2018 15:26:47
Lakers window is closing with LBJ. He'll be 34 this year. I think waiting on Ball, Hart, Kuzma, and Ingram for another 2 years to hopefully become complete players is not in the plans, and Deng is the huge road block. And Chandler is a solid vet who can contribute right away. LBJ already opened his school, don't think he wants to " teach" kids on the court full time.

05 Aug 2018 13:15:09
Jvoug, I know how much you love the Sixers. But I don’t see us helping out the Lakers UNLESS, they give up Kuzma and maybe an unprotected 1st Rnd pick. Mainly because of the amount and length of Dieng’s contract.

05 Aug 2018 13:52:36
Sixer4Life, Deng has 2 years on his contract, this year and the following year. That's it. I think Ingram is the perfect young SF with length and tremendous offensive potential. And helping the Lakers for a couple years won't really matter, they aren't getting through Golden State anytime soon. I just feel that any big-time free agents next year still won't sign in Philly, so using the cap space on Deng, in order to get Ingram is worth it.

01 Aug 2018 13:51:25

PHI gets Butler, Turner, Holiday and bogdanovic

MIN gets 2nd rd pick from PHI (2019), Covington and Saric

IND gets Reddick, Fultz, and 1st rd from PHI ( 2019)

Simmons/ TJ McConnell/ Holiday
Jimmy Butler/ Bogdanovic
Chandler/ Zhaire Smith
Embiid/ Muscala
Turner/ Amir Johnson

Teague/ Rose
Saric/ Gibson
Towns/ Dieng

Fultz/ Joesph
Reddick/ Collison
Vic O / Evans
Thad Young/ McDermott
Sabonis/ Ike.

01 Aug 2018 16:15:00
Don't like this trade for sixers. Turner and Embiid don't seem to be a good fit together. Both inside the paint players offensively and defensively. Also trade leaves sixers with terrible floor spacing and little outside shooting. Not saying Butler and Turner aren't excellent players, just Turner is not a good fit.

01 Aug 2018 16:32:13
Sixers get butler and turner for crap. fultz has no value, saric has more value fultz. neither does a late 1st.
