Not sure why the Spurs would want Johnson for next year since that is the earliest this trade could happen. Spurs will have Murray and Walker IV back from injury and Gasol's contract is only partially guarenteed for next year. Seems smarter to buy Gasol out and save around $10 mil in cap space next year.

20 Feb 2019 15:51:08
PHX- Gordon Heyward, Aron Baynes

BOS- Anthony Davis, Solomon Hill

NOP- Marcus Smart, Jaylon Brown, Josh Jackson, TJ Warren, Robert Williams, Tyler Johnson (exp) 2019 1st (SAC) , 2019 1st (LAC), 2021 1st (BOS)

20 Feb 2019 16:48:11
Why do the Suns want to add another wing? Especially an expensive one that may never be able to live up to the contract.

20 Feb 2019 16:51:23
Not sure why Phoenix does this.

20 Feb 2019 17:40:52
I'm not sure why you hate suns.

20 Feb 2019 18:19:02
An Anthony Davis trade where Boston does not give up Tatum by trying to pull another team's young talent i to the mix. ain't going to happen.

21 Feb 2019 04:37:18
BBBBWWWAAHAHAHAHAHA all teams hang up and why in the heck would PHX do that?

19 Feb 2019 21:53:28
This summer.

Phoenix gets Wall, Patterson, protected Washington 1st

Washington gets Roberson, Jackson

Oklahoma City gets Warren, Howard, 2 Washington 2nds

Phoenix can afford to wait for Wall. If it works out, they get a star who can redefine his career in Phoenix. If it doesn't, they get the pick and risk only a bit.

Washington could keep Roberson (dpoy candidate when healthy) reunited with his Brooks. Or they could buy out the final year of his deal and get out of TONS of salary in exchange for a first. Rebuild around Beal.

Oklahoma seems committed to the luxury tax and going for a championship (I'm one of the proud few who think they could do it this year). Flip Dre for Warren and Patterson for Dwight is splashy and risky. But they get back more offense and athleticism. Helps depth.

19 Feb 2019 22:40:37
Risk only a bit? He’s going to be on the wrong side of 3. Coming back from heel and Achilles surgery. And making 45+ million for multiple years.

Seems like a tad more than “a bit”.

19 Feb 2019 23:24:39
Booker will be a star before Wall gets back.

20 Feb 2019 00:28:08
Not a chance that trade goes down for an injured player.

20 Feb 2019 03:53:15
You might have wall on your team for 4 more years taking up a little less than half your cap. The Wizards would need to multiple unprotected picks to get off of Wall.

18 Feb 2019 18:31:27

Swap 2nds for 2 years

18 Feb 2019 21:04:50
I don't see Phoenix doing it.

18 Feb 2019 22:43:55
Not even Starver would approve of that one.

19 Feb 2019 01:10:50
Even Starver would not accept that.

18 Feb 2019 09:07:56
If Irving leaves


Celtics- Conley

Grizzlies- Hayward, own 1st 2019



Celtics- Jackson, 2nd rd pick

Suns- Rozier

sign Derrick Rose


18 Feb 2019 10:43:30
That Memphis pick could become unprotected in 2020, so i would keep that if i were Boston. Big chance it tuns into a top 5 pick.

18 Feb 2019 11:12:28
I mean Celtics own pick not Memphis.

18 Feb 2019 13:43:56
I would do all of those if I was Boston, especially since they have no shot at Davis long-term if Irving walks. The Rozier one is sticky because he's a RFA on July 1.

18 Feb 2019 15:32:17
Not sure the Suns do that deal if they can draft Ja Morant.

Plus, does Rozier want to go to Phoenix when he could be the starter in Boston once Irving leaves?

18 Feb 2019 19:15:27
If that trade happens and Kyrie leaves, the Boston/ Brooklyn trade from years ago looks like a total win for Brooklyn.

19 Feb 2019 15:29:18
How does the Brooklyn trade look like a win for them at all? The Celtics still have Brown and Tatum, which were because of the Brooklyn trade. Not to mention the winning basketball the team has been able to put forth since they didn't need to tank in order to get good draft picks. That alone is worth the one year of playoffs the Nets got out of the deal.

15 Feb 2019 04:38:17
If knicks trade DSJ Ntilikina for Irving, NY can still trade for or sign big name sg or sign big name and still max durant.

If NY winning the lottery to land
williamson, than you trade knox thomas 3 future 1st for beal and max durant.

If suns wins, you trade 2021 dal 1st and Morant for Williamson, than you trade knox thomas 3 future 1st for beal and max durant. Jordan MLE. Sign Bird rights. 4 vet minimum contract and draft 2nd

Irving/Mudiay(bird right)
Williamson/Vonleh(bird right)

If any body else wins you, you draft Barrett 2 options

Trade Knox Thomas 2 1st for Alridge
Trade Knox Thomas 2 1st for Green

max durant. Jordan MLE. Sign Bird rights. 4 vet minimum contract and draft 2nd

Aldridge or Green/Vonleh

If any body else wins, you draft Barrett. Maxed Durant. Sign Milsap and Jordan 2yr 30 mil. Sign Bird rights. 3 vet minimum contract and draft 2nd


15 Feb 2019 08:00:56
Not sure how you are trading for Irving? S&T?

Secondly, keeping Mudiay's and Vonleah's bird rights creates cap holds that will prevent there being the cap space to sign durant. The cap hold is usually 3x what the player is making in salary this year.

Lastly, you think Millsap is opting out of $30 mil this season? Doubtful.

15 Feb 2019 09:26:31
I think Millsap's contract has a team option, pritty sure Denver isn't going to pay that, unless Millsap plays a great playoff run.

15 Feb 2019 13:35:10
Yup, my bad. Still think Denver picks it up to remain competitive with the top teams in the Western Conference.

15 Feb 2019 18:25:52

Irving has player opt, which he will take in that trade scenario.

Doubt milsap a bench player now get 30 mil. A yr.

The cap hold is usually 3x what the player is making in salary this year.  
Bird right give an opportunity to get 3x what they make. Knicks don't have to offer them more vet minimum. Just means they got 1st dibs. Remember depending which option happen how much cap space NY have. Mudiay has qualifier.

Just being difficult bc nobody wants to join the queens. Your team is 4th option in your own state.

15 Feb 2019 20:53:11
Maybe, shizzee, buts been a long time since we were 11-47.

And that fact alone with all that NYC has to offer makes the Knicks even more disappointing. much like the Jets, Giants, and Mets. Thank God for the Yankees and Islanders or your teams would be worse than anything in NorCal.

14 Feb 2019 00:53:29
Lakers offseason plan:

Lakers send: Lonzo, Ingram, Kuzma, Wagnar, Pick 18, '21 1st, 2x seconds
Receive: Davis

Suns send: Jackson, pick 32, Bucks '1st
Receive: Lonzo

Pels send: Davis
Receive: Ingram, Kuzma, Jackson, Wagnar, Pick 18 & 32, '21 1st (LAL), 2x seconds, Bucks '1st

LAL sign Irving 3+1(PO) Max
Resign KCP 5m & Rondo 5m (Early bird)
Resign Muscala to the V. Min
Sign McGee, R.Lopez or O'Quinn to V. Min
Match Bullock (5-8m)
Sign Ariza or Danny Green to MLE 8m

PG: Irving, Rondo, Bonga
SG: Hart, KCP
SF: Ariza/Green, Bullock
PF: James, Muscala
C: Davis, McGee/Lopez

2 top 5 players + a top 5 PG and solid role players should mean the floor for this team is WCF.

14 Feb 2019 01:55:45
So rondo, kcp, ariza all cut their salaries in half in not third while pels take a worse offer than they refused?

14 Feb 2019 07:51:29
Big Wiz nobody is playing with Lebron discount anymore those days are over.

14 Feb 2019 13:51:40
@Shiller41 I don't think Rondo gets more than 5m at this stage in his career from a contender. KCP would be doing Clutch a solid and after the year the Lakers would have his full bird rights and could offer him a bloated salary (20m).

I think Ariza could take a discount for a starting role on a contender, he only has a few years left and could only get 5m from other contenders.
As far as AD trades go - I think the Pels won't get better offers than the Lakers gave if AD is 'injured' and says he won't resign with anyone but LAL.

14 Feb 2019 13:14:27
Why is Phoenix trading for Ball when they can draft Ja Mont to play the point?

Seems like a waste of sending Milwaukee's 1st to the Lakers. Plus, Jackson is showing improvement while Ball still can't make FTs.

13 Feb 2019 19:28:47
Knicks need to be creative to resign Jordan while adding 2 super max

Knox to Grizz for Reddish


Knox and Jackson great forward combo eventually will play PF and center

DSJ to Heat for Langford


Garland might go sooner, heat need a PG, this is fair value.

Ntilikina Trier to Hawks for Paschall-35 Washington-43 M.Howard-46


Hawks could win 40 games next yr with solid depth.

This clear 12 mil to resign DeAndre Jordan 2yr 28mil and Irving and Durant sign 2yr 70 mil (33mil-2019 & 37mil-2020 player opt) before signing rookies contracts


Lotto Draft
Wizards- Little Wall to Pacers for Holiday 23

13 Feb 2019 20:34:02
Why would Memphis do that?

This is just so bad overall.

13 Feb 2019 23:38:00
That draft has so many players going too early.

14 Feb 2019 01:44:53

Maybe Detriot or Pelicans Culver or Johnson instead of Reddish. Knicks need a 3D sg better than Dotson.

14 Feb 2019 01:57:24
So memphis drafts a younger better shooter and trades the wing they needed for years for Knox? Lol.

14 Feb 2019 06:31:01
Fernando, Okpala, Hachimura and Alexander Walker will not be top 10 picks.

14 Feb 2019 07:52:44
Knox is 19 going to be 20 next yr shelfish.

11 Feb 2019 16:46:46
Most likely to happen? Even if some sounds stupid or delusional :) next season


1. Kings and Cousins reunion. Cousins signs a 4yrs max contract

Pg Fox
Sg Hield
Sf Barnes
Pf Bagley
Ce Cousins

this team can make noise

2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think?)

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines.

6. Durant goes to Lakers :)

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again

8. Suns sign Kemba & one more big time free agent

9. Spurs trade Derozan

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West

11. Mitchell & Doncic become all stars

12. Dwayne Wade comes back

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach

14. Lillard or McCollum trade

15. NYK playoffs

11 Feb 2019 18:40:17
1. I Don't see it happening

2. The Clippers seem to have the assets to pull off a trade, that wouldn't be shocking at all. No chance he resigns in NO.

3. I could see that happening.

4. I think Houston would do anything. They run things very unemotionally. Maybe Orlando makes a bid if they re-sign Vuc? Nos sure they have what Houston would want, but they're someone that would try.

5. Feels very likely.

6. 0% chance. He wouldn't join another team to be called a coward. It's a lowly team that needs him like the Knicks, or it's back to GS.

7. AGAIN! Yep, they jump the Knicks and get Zion.

8. I don't see it. Maybe a big offer sheet player, but not an established all star.

9. The Spurs could do anything. Trading Derozan is definitely on the table.

10. This already happened? They're the third worst team in the west right now.

11. If both of these guys don't make it to 4+ all star games, I'd be surprised.

12. Nah, not after the tour he's had.

13. He'd be a hoooooorible coach. Too much of a perfectionist and too much ego to coach.

14. McCollum: 33%, Lillard: 0%

15. 2025?

11 Feb 2019 19:36:40
5 is the most likely to happen. But I am looking at "no one" as being "no star player". I can see Tyreke Evans signing a short term one year deal.

11 Feb 2019 20:43:40
Right Fredman, I was assuming no one meant no star.

11 Feb 2019 22:58:55
Rise ain't st as ying healthy.

11 Feb 2019 23:26:48
2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard I wish but no to staying even w extension. Clips only hyave shot if Ainge gets weak

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs nope

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think? ) Possible

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines. I'd love to see it but unlikely

6. Durant goes to Lakers :) maybe

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again Nope 1 outta 3 shot

8. Suns sign Kemba and one more big time free agent El Paso says Kemba

9. Spurs trade Derozan Good shot

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West Or at least close

11. Mitchell and Doncic become all stars Over time yes

12. Dwayne Wade comes back Why ask?

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach Nahhh

14. Lillard or McCollum trade L= Nope M =YEPP

15. NYK playoffs Within 3 years.

05 Feb 2019 23:26:41
(I know it seems fantastic but want to hear your opinion)

Lakers get A.Davis, B.Beal, E.Payton, J.Green, D.Melton, C.Diallo and K.Williams
Pelicans get B.Ingram, K.Kuzma, T.J.Warren, I.Zubac, T.Ariza, R.Rondo, LAL's 2023 1st round pick, LAL's 2020 2nd round pick and LAL's 2021 2nd round pick
Wizards get J.Jackson, K.C.Pope, M.Wagner, W.Johnson, S.Hill, LAL's 2019 1st round pick, LAL's 2021 1st round pick and LAL's $3.75M cash
Suns get L.Ball, L.Stephenson, M.Beasley and S.Decker

- sign C.Anthony
* Lakers acquire the stars needed next to James. They could've just traded for Davis, instead of involving Beal to the package, but it'd lower their chance of getting 3rd star in 2019 free agency (check out salary cap'19 and probable team salary otherwise). The trade costs much for LAL but the clock is ticking down for LeBron.

Payton - Melton - Bonga
Beal - Hart - Williams
James - Green - Mykhailiuk
Davis - Anthony
McGee - Chandler - Diallo

- trade N.Mirotic and F.Frazier to Jazz for T.Sefalosha, E.Udoh, R.Neto and UTA's 2019 1st round pick
* Pelicans get exciting young prospects (Ingram, Kuzma, Zubac), possible 6th-man on a reasonable deal (Warren), two veterans on expiring contracts, salary relief (bye-bye Hill) and multiple draft picks. Considering Davis' other preferred destinations (NYK, LAC, Bucks), this package is the best package they can get for AD.

Holiday - Rondo - Neto
Ingram - Moore - Clark
Ariza - Warren - Sefalosha
Kuzma - Randle - Miller
Zubac - Okafor - Udoh

* Wall and Howard are out for at least for a month now, so it seems that Wizards won't make it to the playoffs. This deal allows them to snatch two promosing youngsters on rookie contracts, avoid paying luxury tax (the team salary goes down ~$7M), get two 1st round picks and cash (for swallowing Hill's contract).

Satoransky - Randle - (Wall)
Pope - Brown - Jenkins
Jackson - Johnson - Hill
Porter - Morris - Wagner
Bryant - Mahinmi - (Howard)

* Even though Warren is pretty solid and Jackson has an upside, Suns desperately need a point guard. They already have good young forwards with better ceiling (Oubre and Bridges), and pairing Booker with a star-potential guard like Ball should be their priority. Ball-Booker would be good combo, and Suns will be super exciting if they land Zion Williamson in the draft too.

Ball - Okobo - Ewans
Booker - Crawford - Daniels
Oubre - Stephenson - Decker
Bridges - Anderson - Beasley
Ayton - Bender - Holmes


06 Feb 2019 06:13:42
it's to big of a trade that will never happen but dosnt sound bad.

04 Feb 2019 22:31:49
Lakers get - Davis and Clark
Suns get - Ball
Twolves get - KCP and Miller
Pelicans get - Kuzma Ingram Zubac Teague Jackson 2 Lakers 1st and Suns 2nd





04 Feb 2019 20:53:50
Lakers - Pelicans - Suns

Lakers gets:
Crawford (expiring)

Pelicans gets:
Rondo (expiring)
2019 1st Lakers (unprotected)
2019 1st Bucks (via Suns)
2021 1st Lakers (top 3 protected)

Suns gets:
Stephenson (expiring)
Beasley (expiring)

05 Feb 2019 01:06:39
That’s probably pretty close to what the Lakers will give up. They might have part with Zubac or Hart too. The Suns are probably the perfect partner as well.

04 Feb 2019 11:38:59
Cavs get Anderson and hill plus suns 2021 first unprotected and Lakers 2019 unprotected.

Lakers get Davis

Pelicans get kuzma zubac Jackson plus suns 2019 top 5 protected and Lakers 2021 unprotected. Plus get bender Daniels pope Chandler fry crawford to waive and all expiring contracts.

Suns get love and ball plus players from hood trade.

Salaries match.

04 Feb 2019 15:29:56
I do see much difference between Anderson and love. Love needs to play and prove his value. Stop over valuing ball. Suns will draft Morant with 2nd pick and keep Jackson and 2021 suns 1st. You are kidding right 2 1st for Love.

04 Feb 2019 15:52:23
Players from hood trade cannot be traded within a group.

04 Feb 2019 17:26:31
There getting ball and trading on Anderson horrible contract. So they have ball Booker warren love and auto they should be set for play offs next 4 years. Love contract not bad it's a mystery. I don't think suns get pick Two. Cavs Knicks bulls suns get 4. Not over valuing ball. It's a need for the suns. They get ride of Jackson who they don't need with bridges and the dude from Washington who is balling out. Anderson and Jackson plus two picks for ball and love. Anderson is negative value and love was just one the main focal points on a championship team. Ball is better Jackson and ball is more a need then Jackson. With Booker they need a more proven players not more rookies. About time the rookies ready Booker will be ready to leave.

04 Feb 2019 17:28:45
There a big difference between love and Anderson. What has love accomplished over Anderson. Love is way ahead and still can be effective 20 and 12.

04 Feb 2019 19:01:20
Love is more effective than Anderson for about 40 games a deason. That is all that Love plays nowadays.

04 Feb 2019 23:51:39
Still 4 times better then Anderson even with the fans makes it even better for love. Great player just had problems with green guarding him.

04 Feb 2019 09:01:52

04 Feb 2019 19:02:58
Just tying to figure out why everyone has Phoenix trading for Ball when they are going to draft Morant in the upcoming draft.

04 Feb 2019 08:38:44
HOU receives Maker

MIL receives Oubre

PHX receives Nene, 1st rd pick HOU (top 20 protected)

04 Feb 2019 10:31:49
Terrible for Phoenix.

04 Feb 2019 14:10:32
Phoenix would rather have Maker and leave Houston out of it.

04 Feb 2019 14:40:41
@ Fredman, Agreed!

Send Maker to Phoenix,

Phoenix then sends Oubre to Milwaukee.

No need for Houston to get involved.

04 Feb 2019 14:51:06
Houston is looking for a wing, not another big man.

04 Feb 2019 08:36:22

Send Maker to Phoenix

Send Oubre to Milwaukee

Straight deal

No need for NOP.

04 Feb 2019 14:52:06
Terrible for Milwaukee. Prez Brogdan is worth more than both players coming in.

New block buster 4 team trade

Pelicans , Cavs , suns, wizards

Pelican would get

Wizards 1 rounder in 19/21/25 and suns 1 20

Cavs salary cap before trade / $119,810,358 after trade- $109,080,700

Wizards would get

Pf Kevin Love
Pf Channing Frye
Wizard cap before trade is 129,499,038 after trade is $130,834,308

Now I know all going say Davis want play with "lakers" but it would give wizards real big 3 and give Davis chance play for the 1 time with not 1 super star but potential 4 when health star player would give him chance not only make the playoffs but legitimately Plus give wizards one year if all thing went right show him he can win a title

Pg wall , Satoransky , Randle
Sg beal, McRae , brown jr

Pf love , Frye , vet min.

Tell me that wouldn't be a NBA champion contender 2020/2021 and still give wizards this year to make the playoffs in a weaker eastern conference to get to the finals and if I was Davis I Seriously think about stay after next year with that team who know what happen this summer maybe Couple of wall buddy and one being buddy with Davis would want come to Washington and if wizard didn't make playoff maybe wizard decide to start ove with front office and coach and finally decide to try to convince old coaching friend of them to come to town take over then wow know what happen after that .

03 Feb 2019 16:07:05
Care to explain how Phoenix is able to add $20 mil in salary when they are already over the salary cap?

03 Feb 2019 17:23:15
So the Wizards give up little of value and get a ton back. That makes sense.

03 Feb 2019 17:38:12
Man Pels pass immediately. Way better off w Boston or even Knickss.

02 Feb 2019 16:05:32
Lakers: AD, Warren, Daniels

Suns: Lonzo, Randle

Pelicans: KCP (exp), Rondo (exp), Ingram, Kuzma, Zubac, Wagner, Josh Jackson, Lakers 1st (19), Milwaukee 1st via Suns (19)

02 Feb 2019 21:27:08
Lakers add a second and deal.

02 Feb 2019 14:23:00
3 trades Thunder can make to help the bench let me know what yall think are they fair if not all which ones are?

OKC Suns Trade

OKC get Troy Daniels use exception from TLC
Suns get Nader and a 2nd round pick

OKC Miami Trade

OKC get Ellington
Miami get Patterson and a 2nd round pick

OKC Kings Trade

OKC get Labissiere
Kings get Abrines and a 2nd if needed

With these three trades their salary doesn't really change so They won't be paying more in taxes. They get a great 3 point shooters off the bench in Ellington and Daniels and they give a young guy struggling to get playing time for the Kings a fresh start. He has shot the 3 ball at 35% over his career which isn't to bad for a big man and he can't do much worse than Patterson has been doing and he is cheaper and younger.

Sign a PF/ C for depth to a minimum contract save a roster spot for buyouts

Thunder Lineup
Westbrook/ Shroder/ Felton
Ferguson/ Daniels/ Diallo
George/ Ellington/ Roberson
Grant/ Labissier/ FA
Adams/ Noel/.
