The Cavs get Fultz, Ingram, Parsons, Deng 38th, the Philly 2020 1st , a Lakers future 2nd, and 2 Philly future 2nds

The 76ers get Love, Hill, and the 4th pick

The Lakers get Lebron

The Grizzlies get Covington, Korver, the 25th and 26th picks.

21 Jun 2018 19:57:21
It's more beneficial for the Lakers to sign lbj outright and maybe even the cavs too to get out of luxury tax. S&t is good with a deal to rockets. Or cavs get a little something that is salary friendly from lakers. Consolation prize of sorts. No need for Griz and sixers involvement.

21 Jun 2018 15:16:17
The Cavs seem to have interest in all 3 of the point guards that could potentially go in the lottery. They could benefit from trading back.

Philly by all accounts seems to be all in on Bridges and doesn't have a ton of roster spots. They also will probably want to add some veteran talent with their cap space this summer limiting spots even further.

The Cavs get the 10th pick, the 26th, the 56th and 2 future Philly 2nds (Philly has 3 2nds in each of the next 2 drafts and 2 the year after)

21 Jun 2018 15:27:07
It’s a lot for philly just to move up two spots but I understand they do have the stock to do it. I honestly believe the 1st and the 3 2nds are enough but this is possible if Philly only wants Bridges.

21 Jun 2018 15:41:10
I don't think 2nds would be enough for the Cavs to move the pick. Philly's 1st this year would have to be attached. InthinknPhilly would also be more than willing to move the 2nds they feel will be later in the draft. They'll likely sell them anyway. Maybe the Cavs could add some cash considerations to the deal to sweeten it on Philly's end.

20 Jun 2018 20:10:40
3 team trade suns, clippers, and 76ers suns brandon knight to clippers then Austin rivers to 76ers then jerryd Bayless to the suns

20 Jun 2018 20:27:23
Sixers definitely not interested.

20 Jun 2018 19:14:19
suns trade brevin knight to the 76ers for pg jerrad Bayless and 2 2nd round picks .

20 Jun 2018 19:51:12
Philly doesn't need knight. Extremely overpaid. Only if Suns add picks.

20 Jun 2018 19:58:11
PHILLY would need knight's contract for next yr if they are below certain salary line they would give some money back to the nba . in which in the past may trades to avoid that situation .

20 Jun 2018 21:45:51
tba. the " salary floor" argument to take on knights bad contract is absolutely ridiculous.

20 Jun 2018 18:13:33

76ers get: Gary Harris, Chandler Parsons, #4 pick(MPJ)

Nuggets get: #10 pick, Robert Covington

Grizzlies get: #14, #26, Jerryd Bayless

Sixers absorb Parsons nearly $50 million contract, gaina much needed young sg in Harris and add Michael Porter Jr as SF.
C: Embiid, Holmes
Pf:Saric, Ilyosova,Bolden
Sf:MPJ, Anderson
Sg:Harris,Reddick, Fultz
Pg:Simmons, Fultz, McConnell

20 Jun 2018 18:25:48
I like the moving pieces but I think nuggets would prefer Harris over Covington. Mpj after Chicago workout reports are putting him in the 6-9 range. I actually read 7-9 but I think he could go 6.

20 Jun 2018 18:32:05
Btec:. I had the nuggets moving up from #14 to #10, and saving 7 million in salry because Harris is a bit more valuable then Covington imo as well. I thought the draft pick move upeards, salary savings, and Covingtons outstanding defense would even the trade out.

20 Jun 2018 19:05:52
I get that sixers are better with Harris but so are the nuggets. If faried expires and nuggets are trying to deal 14 with him then I'm guessing they want more savings of salary and less stock in the draft. Otherwise they'd package Harris and 14 and move way up. Like at least 4. Could probably deal Harris, faried and 14 for parsons and 4. Knox or bridges helps little when you have Covington, chandler already.

20 Jun 2018 00:14:51
Covington & Fultz for

Salaries match almost perfectly, blazers get 3&eliteD and fultz to develop next to lilliard as 2nd scorer, Philly gets elite scorer next to Simmons and Embiid.

Noel for
Turner & 18' 1st rounder

Clears 10M and gets backup C for POR, gets 1st rounder in exchange for taking on Turner contract to DAL

Blazers let all FAs walk and sign Rudy Gay+ Mle veteren PG

New Blazers
Lilliard/FA on MLE

20 Jun 2018 00:56:10
Sixers say no

20 Jun 2018 01:30:48
I would do Covington, #10,#26 for Mccollum.

20 Jun 2018 02:51:47
I’m definitely not mad at this as a sixers fan. An extra recruiting piece for lebron.

20 Jun 2018 02:54:28
Blazers need to shed salary, unfortunately. Noel is unrestricted, and I don't see any reason why blazers want him with nurkic and Collins and why noel would do a s&t. It's possible but unlikely. Turner and the 25th is not enough for his 36 mil owed I don't think.

20 Jun 2018 04:37:22
I don't think the sixers give up both assets for McCollum. If Mikal Bridges isn't there at 10 then maybe I do it but I think Bridges will be there and for me he is too good a fit here to trade away. Let Fultz develop his game while keeping the valuable 3 and D guys.

19 Jun 2018 22:28:35
76ers / Nuggets

Nuggets looking to move up in draft, get better on D, and shed some salary. Sixers in need of shooting.

Sixers get: Gary Harris(owed 4yrs and $74million) and pick #14

Nuggets get: Robert Covington and pick #10

20 Jun 2018 01:03:25
Don’t think Sixers trade Covington and 10 for Neal as after Bridges I don’t see the sixers being very high on anyone as they want players to help now not projects. If Covington and 14 areremoved and Sixers add 26 and maybe Holmes and a 2nd or too I think that would be all they would be willing to part with other than different role players

19 Jun 2018 15:59:07
If Washington wants K. Leonard

Philly gets Beal

Spurs get Covington, Oubre, Luwawu-Cabarrot, Picks #15, #26, #39

Washington gets Leonard, Bayless, Korkmaz, Picks #10, #38

19 Jun 2018 17:49:35
Washington and Philly say yes, Spurs say no.

21 Jun 2018 02:20:22
Wizards would say no, wizards not trading Beal, or Oubre.

18 Jun 2018 17:14:51
Cavs Re-tool

Trade 1:
- CHA receives: #8 Pick, Jordan Clarkson, JR Smith (expiring)
- CAVS: Kemba Walker, Marvin Williams

Trade 2: (S/T)
- OKC receives: Kevin Love and Kyle Korver
- CAVS: Paul George

PG - Walker, Hill, Calderon
SG - George, KCP,
SF - Lebron, Osman, Holland
PF - Williams, Green,
C - Thompson, Nance, Zizic

Cavs clear $59M in salary by trading away Love, Smith, Clarkson and Korver. Lebron recruits George to play in Cleveland and Cavs sign KCP with the MLE (Klutch sports connection). Cavs could also buy a 2nd rounder from Philly who have 4 2nds this year to get a young player off the bench

17 Jun 2018 15:36:38
Multiple Kawhi deals:

Just having fun with a couple of deals, let me know which ones, if any, you like.

#1 - To GSW

Kawhi for Klay and Jordan Bell

Kawhi moves to the two, Warriors and Spurs would have to sign either after next season, Spurs get young C, and if healthy, Claw makes Warriors unstoppable.

#2 - To MIA

Kawhi for JJ, Bam and Justise

Miami loves star players, and they get one in Claw. Spurs take on two years of overpaid but solid James Johnson to get two potential building blocks in Winslow and Bam.

#3 - To POR

Kawhi for Harkless, Aminu, Collins, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Admittedly the worst player package, Spurs get only two solid rotation players and a young C with potential, but this is about picks and depth. Blazers tried their best to add a third star last year, but were unsuccessful. This year they get their guy.

4# - To LAC

Kawhi, Mills for Harris, Beverley, Johnson, pick 12

This is a popular rumour, and is one I like. Harris and Beverley are above average players who offer D and versatility. Johnson adds another shooter, and pick 12 brings a good rotation piece. Kawhi goes home, and Mills offers shooting at the 1. Yes, Clips dealt two stars last year, but I don’t believe it was for a rebuild, so adding a superstar while still keeping a lottery pick in this year’s draft is a win.

#5 - To BOS

Kawhi, Mills for Hayward, Brown

Both Claw and Gordon are coming off major injuries, so both teams are taking a risk. When healthy though, Kawhi is the better player, and Brown is needed to get this deal done. Mills salary matches, but also helps soften the blow should Smart not resign, or if Rozier is needed in a separate deal.

#6 - To NYK

Kawhi for Lee, Frank, Dotson, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Again, not a great player package, but Lee feels like a Spur, Frank and Dejonte are a defensive nightmare and two picks, including 9 brings quality youth. Sounds like Kawhi and his camp have at least a fleeting interest in playing in NY, and him with Zinger would be the foundation for the Knicks turnaround.

#7 - To UTA

Kawhi for Ingles, Thabo, O’Neal and 2018 1st

Claw with Mitchell, and Steiffel would be a scary threesome, though Jazz hesitate as this is the spot Claw is least likely to resign. Spurs get a really solid, underrated player on a good deal in Ingles, an expiring deal in Thabo and two young pieces.

#8 - To LAL

Kawhi for Ingram, Kuzma

Spurs don’t get pick 25, but also don’t take back Deng. Lakers give up two good building blocks, and keep 25 to try to tie to Deng for another trade.

#9 - To PHI

Kawhi for Saric, Covington and pick 10

Philly gets their star if LBJ doesn’t land there. Spurs get an underrated 3 and D guy, and two young quality pieces.

#10 - To CHI

Kawhi, pick 17 for Valentine, Portis, picks 7 and 22

Chicago speeds up the rebuild, adding Kawhi to Lauri and Kris while keeping a first in this year’s draft. Spurs get youth and two picks.

17 Jun 2018 15:54:11
Outside of the Celtics offer here, most of these seem pretty short.

19 Jun 2018 03:27:19
I think the most likely of these in order are LAC, LAL, CHI. You could add PHI to that if you switched Saric with Fultz.

17 Jun 2018 10:02:17
If 76ers want Doncic or MPJ:

Hawks get TLC, Korkmaz, Holmes, Bayless, picks #10, #26, #39, #56 and 76ers 2019 1st rounder unprotected

76ers get Plumlee and pick #3

So 76ers can get Doncic or MPJ and still have cap space for James or PG

17 Jun 2018 10:41:36
Can't include the 2019 1st Rd pick. It's tied up in the Boston trade last year. If Kings pick lands first overall, Celtics get sixers 2019 1st, and sixers keep 2019 Kings pick.

17 Jun 2018 12:52:11
But then you can give the Kings pick to the Hawks.

19 Jun 2018 09:55:30
So in your trade Philly ends up with a roster of:
PG Simmons / McConnell
SG Fultz / Anderson
SF Doncic / ?
PF Saric /
C Embiid / Plumlee

So unless we Re-sign Reddick / Illyasova / Belineli
AND P. George or LBJ we will be back at “Square One” bcoz we won’t have a bench to compete in the playoffs. So 2nd Round lose again to Boston huh?

17 Jun 2018 06:43:42
Blazers get - Drummond Saric TLC and Bayless
76ers get - McCollum and Leonard
Pistons get - Turner 10th pick and 24th pick
*pistons trade Griffen and enter full rebuild*



Pistons TBD depending on picks received for Griffen

17 Jun 2018 14:02:31
Not sure I'd absorb Turner for 10, let alone give up Drummond.

18 Jun 2018 17:36:25
Detroit can find a better deal if they trade Drummond.
I was thinking brown, 1st and filler to send Dre to Boston.

19 Jun 2018 10:20:07

Sixers lineup
PG Simmons / McConnell
SG McCollum / Fultz / Korkmas
SF Leonard / Covington / Anderson
PF Illyasova / overseas stash PF (Bolden)
C Embiid / R. Holmes

Covington and Fultz can fight to be the 6th Man of the Year.

Bring back llyasova (3years-28Mil)

16 Jun 2018 04:47:12


PHI gets Bogdanovic, Harkless, Collison and 1st from IND

IND gets Fultz. Saric, McCollum

POR gets Covington. Thad Young. Joseph, and Myles Turner
Sign Smart 3yr/ 36 mil

Collison/ TJ McConnell
Reddick/ Bogdanovic
Simmons/ Mikal Bridges (#10)
Bron/ Holmes
Embiid/ Mitchell Robinson (#23)

Lilard/ Joesph/ Napier
Smart/ Evan Turner
Covington/ Aminu
Thad Young/ Leonard
Turner/ Collins


16 Jun 2018 04:55:30
my god no. with fultz, saric, and covington, philly can get just about any deal, but here they get nothing.

16 Jun 2018 01:58:29
Kawhi Leonard trades

Spurs get - 2nd pick(Doncic) Skal, Jackson and Shumpert
Kings get - Leonard


Spurs get - Hayward Brown and 27th pick
Celtics get - Leonard and Green


Spurs get - Bayless (Fultz or Covington) Saric 10th pick
76ers get - Kawhi and Mills


Spurs get - Kanter Frank 9th pick and protected 2020 1st
Knicks get - Kawhi


Spurs get - Middleton Maker Wilson and 17th
Bucks get - Kawhi and Green


Spurs get - Beal Smith Oubre and 2019 1st
Wizards get - Kawhi


16 Jun 2018 05:06:27
i think the philly deal is most likely, bucks is intriguing though. and wiz shouldn't do that.

19 Jun 2018 15:53:16
Danny Green is past it and has little value. If he’s filler that’s one thing but he’s not a difference maker in these scenarios.

16 Jun 2018 01:48:30
Spurs - Raptors

Spurs get:
Demar DeRozan
OG Anunoby
Delon Wright

Raptors get:
Kawhi Leonard
Patty Mills

I would say this is similar to what OKC gave up to get Paul George.

Raptors spruce up their roster for one last run before the Celtics and 76ers dominate the East. If it doesn't work, and Kawhi leaves, they blow it up.

Spurs get all star level talent and a Kawhi junior in return.

16 Jun 2018 13:50:47
but if it doesn't work and kawhi leaves you gave a 2 good young pieces in delon wright and anunoby and gave up a star who can be traded for more young assets.

17 Jun 2018 03:16:43
Raptors say no.

15 Jun 2018 16:30:44

Sign Lebron James to 2 year MAX (Opt-out clause)

Re-sign JJ Reddick 2 year $30 million

PHI- Kawhi Leonard
SA- Markelle Fultz, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, #10 pick

C- Joel Embiid
F- Lebron James
F- Kawhi Leonard
G- JJ Reddick
G- Ben Simmons

15 Jun 2018 16:37:28
Embiid or Simmons would have to be included in any deal for Leonard.

15 Jun 2018 18:17:45
Please stop supercollider. That's just a ridiculous statement. Embiid and Simmons have CONSIDERABLY more value than Leonard. Not saying they're betting, but considering contracts, Leonard's value isn't that high.

If SA wanted to rebuild, that package (even leaving Covington out) would be a great package.

15 Jun 2018 11:46:37
Don't know if the Suns would consider trading booker but I think he would be a perfect fit in Philly.

Sixers trade Fultz, Covington, 10
And 26
Suns trade Booker
3rd team receives Bayless, 2 or 3 2nds to make money work and sends a future heavily protected 2nd to PHI

Suns have more time to develop players which Fultz needs and they gain a very solid wing defender in Covington With a great contract and 2 first rounders this year

Sixers get a guy capable of creating his own shot and hitting a 3 which they desperately needed this year. They then would need a wing with good defense to replace Covington, and Lebron would be perfect as he often likes to guard point guards and Simmons can guard the wing.


If Lebron is still on the fence I really think this would make him rethink coming to Philly this would be a very competitive team

15 Jun 2018 13:08:21
I don't think they want to trade Booker, as they've started to build around him. But if they did, they would have to be blown away, which this doesn't do. If you're talking Philly, the conversation starts with either Embiid or Simmons, and that's obviously where the conversation ends for Philly. They just aren't a good matchup since they're both in the build around young potential stars phase. Philly has done well with it. we'll see what happens with Phoenix this year.

15 Jun 2018 13:25:27
As a sixer fan, I love it. As a realistic basketball fan, Suns Never do this trade.

15 Jun 2018 14:10:01
Sorry I can't see this happening. Devin is too much of a liability when it comes to defense. I think he's a better shooter than Reddick, but that wasn't the problem with Reddick. Whoever he guarded ended up being a mismatch.

15 Jun 2018 14:54:55
It seems like an overpay for Booker to me. I do like the idea of Philly consolidating, though.

15 Jun 2018 15:03:45
Jack, you really think that Philly is the team that turns this down? Booker has a chance to be one of the best offensive players in the league. I don't think the Suns even take calls on him.

15 Jun 2018 15:39:05
Rightly or otherwise, Suns Mgt decided to make Booker their "face of the team" so, there is no way this deal comes close to working on a number of levels. Now, most every player eventually ends up wearing out their welcome and that will happen with Booker in PHX but not just yet.

14 Jun 2018 22:51:57
Hawks draft night action

Trade number 1:
Hawks get Chandler Parsons, 4th pick
Grizzlies get Kent Bazemore, DeAndre Bembry, 19th and 34th pick

Trade number 2:
Hawks get Terrence Ross, Jerrryd Bayless, 26th and 35th pick
Magic get Dennis Schroeder
76ers get Malcolm Delaney

Hawks end up with picks

3-Jaren Jackson Jr
4-Trae Young
26- Gary Trent Jr
30-Grayson Allen
35- Keita Bates Diop

Hawks lineup
PG: Young, Baylees, Taylor
SG: Trent Jr, Allen, Dorsey
SF: Prince, Ross, Parsons
PF: Collins, Bates Diop, Muscala
C: Jackson Jr, Dedmon, Plumlee.

15 Jun 2018 00:42:20
Grizz aren't giving up the 4 just to trade bad contracts and get a few trinkets.

15 Jun 2018 00:55:28
Grizzlies say no.

14 Jun 2018 22:08:41
I want to take a look at the 76er's current situation and how to get past the Celtics to the finals.

Magic Receive Jarryd Bayless and #26 OVR 2018 draft pick.

76ers receive #41 OVR 2018 draft pick.

Thinking: Sixers are able to unload 8.576 million from their salary cap situation to be able to accommodate a max contract. Meanwhile the Magic are able to add a shooter that is still only 29. He's expensive for this year, but only has one year on his contract. He's better than Fournier and only half the price. In return for the extra salary, they're moving up 15 spots in the draft.

Cavaliers Receive Picks 10, 38, and 41
76ers Receive Pick 8

Thinking: Cavaliers begin to realize Dan Gilbert doesn't have the best relations with LBJ. It seems like a low ball offer, but mind yourself that the Cavs and Sixers are looking for two separate Archetypes. The Cavs should not worry about the Sixers or Knicks taking their big man they have their eyes on (with Porzingis and Embiid). In return for dropping two spots, they're put back into round 2 with options for cheap role players. **If this trade can't be completed than that's ok. I was trying to get the Sixers into the top 7 for Doncic, MPJ, Bamba, or Trae Young.**

Free Agency: ~39.5 million
Picking Up Team Options on McConnell and Holmes (1.6 mil each)

Plan A: Lebron James: I'd throw money at LBJ in hopes he'd teach the team how to win and perform in crunch time. The shortcoming of the Sixers was having a player they could turn to in the last 5 minutes in the game to take over. The weakest part of the team was the final quarter and this would work to solve it.

Plan B: Avery Bradley and Aaron Gordon: With around 36 million dollars to play with, I'd first throw money towards Avery Bradley. I think he's a much better fit. I'd be perfectly fine throwing 18-22 million towards Avery. He is the elite perimeter defender that they can use to put on the opposing guards on the Celtics, Warriors, and Rockets. He's a HUGE upgrade over JJ Reddick for this reason. Notice the athletic/strong guards dictated the playoff series with Boston. My other move would be trying to pry away Aaron Gordon or Julius Randle (if you can't pry them away, at least make the Lakers and Magic pay a pretty penny). That's the other element I think the Sixers are missing. Aaron Gordon can slide right in with Dario as backup power forward. I'd be willing to throw the remaining money at him. If I can't come up with the cap space to sign Aaron, I'd flirt the market for the package of Covington and the #8 pick (looking to move into 3-6 range).

Possible Starting Line Up:
PG: Markelle Fultz
SG: Avery Bradley
SF: Ben Simmons/Robert Covington
PF: Ben Simmons/Dario Saric
C: Joel Embiid

6th Man: Aaron Gordon
7th Man: TJ McConnell

My final analysis is that this team would have the shooting in Markelle and Avery to offset the inside game of Embiid and Simmons. The defense would be versatile with Bradley, Covington, Simmons, and Embiid. The height and athleticism on the inside wouldn't be changing much, so rebounding is still near the top of the NBA (Aaron Gordon doesn't hurt either).

Let me know what you guys think (if you like it I might try to fix another team)!

15 Jun 2018 00:50:12
Okay a few things
1. Aaron Gordon would start
2. Avery Bradley is nowhere near worth 18-22 million a year! If it’s a 1yr 15m deal then that would be okay. But if it’s a multi-year deal, it should be about 3yr 30m.

15 Jun 2018 00:56:50
You max off gordon to bench him? Lol.

15 Jun 2018 03:34:06
My philosophy is to have him lead the second team. You can experiment with putting him in the first lineup, but medically I didn't want to push him. Let him get comfortable (and use that Philly medical system) to ensure he's healthy long term.

Also, talking contracts, I would be looking to front load them. Avery Bradley in my eyes is worth every penny of 18 million. See if he'd bite for a contract where we take half his total salary this year and spread the rest over the next two years for flexibility when resigning Simmons and Fultz.

13 Jun 2018 22:36:42

Denver-10 pick+Covington

76ers-gary harris+chandler

76ers signed Paul George 4years/120m

14 Jun 2018 01:25:37
Don't know if sixers have much of a chance to sign George, but I like the trade. Harris would be a perfect sg for Philly.
