Pelicans final move

Pels - TJ Warren, Brandon Knight

Suns - Omir Asik, Axel Toupane, Quincy Pondexter, 2018 top 5 protected pick

Pels get help on the wings and scoring

Suns clear path for Jackson to start at SF, swapping contracts with Asik who they could stretch and clear cap and let the young guys play and gain a 1st round pick


PG - Rondo - Cook - Jackson
SG - Holiday - Knight - Crawford
SF - Warren - Hill
PF - Davis - Diallo
C - Cousins - Asik

Find a big or two in Vet min contracts.

20 Jul 2017 19:19:01
The Phoenix fans are going to hate this one. lol.

20 Jul 2017 19:29:08
Don't like it for Suns. Jackson will be able to get plenty of minutes regardless of if he starts or not and Warren is actually a very solid player that is young and allows them to ease Jackson into things.

20 Jul 2017 11:15:46
Rest of Pelicans offseason

Melo trade

Pels get Ariaza

Knicks get Knight, Ajinca, Moore, Toupane, Quaterman, and Long and first rounder from Suns

Pelicans get Troy Daniels with Buddy Hield trade exception

Trade three
Pelicans get Bellinelli

Hawks get Booker and Quincy P

20 Jul 2017 19:37:24
suns don't give up a first rounder fir Anderson, its a salary dump they would need more than just Anderson to give up a pick.

20 Jul 2017 09:35:53

Pistons gets E. Bledsoe + TJ. Warren

Suns gets R. Jackson + S. Jhonson

20 Jul 2017 19:36:15
Why would the Suns do this. They get worse at both positions. This site posters likes to dump on the suns. I don't get it.?

20 Jul 2017 19:42:39
not enough for drummond, make the pick top 3 protected or something like it and maybe its a deal.

19 Jul 2017 04:28:15
The Cavs go all in.

The Cavs get Marc Gasol, Melo, Bledsoe, Chriss, Danny Green and a Phoenix 1st

Phoenix gets Irving

Memphis gets Love and a Cavs 2nd

Ny gets Thompson, Bender, and Felder

The Spurs get Shumpert, a protected Memphis 1st, and a Cavs 2nd

19 Jul 2017 06:03:00
I wouldn't trade Irving if i were the Cavs. If james leaves again, he's still young enough to be their cornerstone.

19 Jul 2017 12:01:08
As the corner stone they got the 1st pick overall. Besides he already said if lebron goes, he wants to go.

19 Jul 2017 16:30:46
This one is a fantastic trade for almost everyone involved. Memphis doesn't really get any better, but Love is 4 years younger than Gasol, so he should be around longer.

It's especially good for the Cavs, as it takes away their number 2 star, but gives them a ton more depth, which is more important to have around James. so I really don't want anyone to see this and make it a reality.

Phoenix gets a legit star to pair with Booker, and he's young enough that he will still be there when Booker is a top guy and Jackson comes into his own. They give up a lot of potential in Bender and Chriss, so they're going to need help in the frontcourt, but it's the beginnings of a solid squad.

NY gets Thompson to play alongside Porzingis, and Bender to back him up. More importantly, they're getting anything of real value for Melo, which is all they can ask for at this point.

19 Jul 2017 16:35:05
I think the Cavs have to commit to winning titles in the short term and worry about the future when that day comes. If they could get significantly better by trading Irving now, they should do it. Since he's still young enough to go to a team that's been rebuilding the past few years and he has 3 years left on his contract, his value is never going to be higher. Obviously, if they only get low ball offers for him there is no point in trading him, but if they could get something like I wrote here it would definitely need to be considered. After this trade, the team would
take a half a step back on offense to take a giant step forward on defense. They also end up with a few pieces to make a second trade.

19 Jul 2017 20:35:43
Phoenix gets a steal!

19 Jul 2017 01:21:15

Raptors get K.Faried & 2nd round pick from Suns


Hawks get J.Valanciunas , B.Knight & 1st round pick from Nuggets


Nuggets get E.Bledsoe


Suns get D.Shroeder & W.Barton


19 Jul 2017 04:40:16
Yeah that's a big NO from Atlanta. They are not going to trade their best player for two players nobody wants and a a pick in the mid teens.

18 Jul 2017 16:02:05
Melo wants, Melo gets!!

Carmelo Anthony to Cavs in 4 teams trade

Knight, Henson, Frye and Felder to NY

Shumpert and Monroe to Suns

Rose(s&t), Chandler and Jefferson to Bucks

Cavs 2nd rd pick to Knicks
Bucks 1st rd protected pick to Knicks
Suns 2nd rd pick to Knicks

Cavs retain Love in Melo trade

Knicks get Knight and picks for trading Melo and Rose(s&t to 10M+) and gaining also some TPE

Suns get defensive player (shumpert > knight) and offensive big man, Monroe will get a chance to revitalize his career

Bucks get Rose and Kidd's teammates Chandler and Jefferson

18 Jul 2017 16:38:41
Cavs aren't sending out enough salary, JR Smith, Love or Thompson need to be included (or Korver but I don't think he can be included in trades until later in season) . I don't think its worth keeping Love and Melo as both are primarily offensive players and one would be relegated to the 4th option which would significantly minimize the impact they could have since only one ball and so many shots to go around. Also, given the fact Cavs were a great offensive team and a poor defensive one I think they should be focused on improving on the other side of the ball.

18 Jul 2017 23:59:01
No from bucks.

17 Jul 2017 20:32:53

DEN get Carmelo Anthony , Bruno Caboclo & 2nd rd pick from NY
- if Anthony agree, would be nice if DEN wants to compete

send Caboclo , Arthur & protected 1st to PHX for Knight

Pg Knight/Nelson
Sg Murray/Harris/Beasley
Sf Anthony/Chandler
Pf Millsap/Lyles/Lydon
Ce Jokic/Plumlee

NY get Jonas Valanciunas , Wil Barton & Justin Hamilton (waive)
get a young center to create a trio with Zinger & Willie & young wing guy

Pg Nkitilina/Baker
Sg Hardaway/Thomas
Sf Barton/Kuzminkas
Pf Porzingis/Hernangomez/Oquinn
Ce Valanciunas/Noah

TOR get Kenneth Faried & Courtney Lee
- get a more mobile big and a 3 & D wing

Pg Lowry/VanVleet/Wright
Sg Derozan/Powell
Sf Lee/Miles
Pf Faried/Poeltl
Ce Ibaka/Lucas

17 Jul 2017 21:37:15
Knight, Murray and Melo starting together? I don't think Millsap can guard four players at once.

17 Jul 2017 23:17:43
Its good value for Nuggets in Melo trade but they should be trying to get Bledsoe from Phx not Knight. I however, doubt Melo wants to go back to Nuggets who even with him wouldn't likely be a top 4 team in the west and still located in Denver, CO.

Very solid return for Knicks on Melo and Toronto's return on Valanciunas is fair.

18 Jul 2017 03:26:39
Knicks pass. Barton is a 2 not a 3. Hermangomez is a 5 not a 4. It just ends up a lot of people out of place and doesn't improve the team.

18 Jul 2017 07:23:57
What is all this nuggets reunion all about? I'm sure he has no interest on going back.

17 Jul 2017 14:53:53
NYK- Eric Bledsoe, Trevor Ariza
PHX- Dwayne Wade, 2022 HOU 1st (top 3 protected)
HOU- Carmelo Anthony
CHI- Ryan Anderson, Dragon Bender, 2020 HOU 1st (top 3 protected)

17 Jul 2017 15:11:26
Why in the world would suns do this? Suns are a young team that should be building for the future. They have no need for Wade especially at this price. A 2022 first is way too far in the future to have much value and since Rockets have Harden locked up until then they probably won't be awful. That would be a bad return on Bledsoe but giving up Bender too who they used a #4 pick for a year ago is beyond reason.

Even tho Bulls are getting a complete steal despite only giving up Wade (who probably has little value other than as an expiring contract) trade doesn't make sense for them. Even if they don't bring back Mirotic they still have Portis and Markkanen as pf and don't need to add two more.

17 Jul 2017 15:39:30
Needed a laugh early in the morning today. this Wade to PHX thing surely provided one. Not a chance in the netherworld this could happen.

17 Jul 2017 01:27:11
Knicks suns blazers


Portland 1st

Knicks 2nd.

17 Jul 2017 05:08:51
2 big no ways for Portland. giving a 1st round pick and taking Noah's salary. Maybe Turner, Leonard, and a 2nd rounder for C. Anthony and that's it.

17 Jul 2017 06:27:14
Yeah, absolutely no way Portland gives up a first in this trade. If anything, they should be getting a first to take on Noah.

17 Jul 2017 12:06:53
So the Knicks have other options. if the blazers want melo like all reports claim, they have to give a desireable package. Turner. Leonard and a 2nd ain't that.

Foolish comment.

Now crabbe and harkless are untouchable?

17 Jul 2017 21:58:55
Portland first could be one of this years picks that have already been picked.

18 Jul 2017 01:38:03
Bmiller. Anthony's trade value is not what you think it is. And Portland actually does not want him, regardless of the fan-based rumors that are floating. Thank you for your "foolish" retort. from a Knick's fan. that is funny.

18 Jul 2017 01:39:44
Hamburger. Sorry Bmiller.

17 Jul 2017 01:14:44
Knicks Portland suns.

melo/ Noah
Chandler/ Bledsoe / Crabbe

Crabbe/ harkless/ turner
Melo/ Noah

Bledsoe/ chandler
Harkless/ turner/ oquinn

Maybe suns get a 2nd pick from Knicks or 2 one from Portland as well.

17 Jul 2017 05:10:14
no way Portland take's on Noah's salary. And no way Portland gives up Harkless and Crabbe.

17 Jul 2017 18:37:02
It's getting panned, but I actually don't hate this trade as long as the Blazers really want Melo. You can slot him right in as the PF next to Nurcic. Sure Noah's contract is terrible, but so are Crabbe and Turner's, and they also don't fit the team all that well. In this case, you're bringing in a player you really want, along with one dead weight contract.

As for the Knicks, you get the big time PG you need, a center who could see the floor, and a guy in Crabbe who's on a terrible contract, but will be able to play for you. That team will fit better around Porzingis, and will probably compete for the playoffs for better or worse.

I like it a lot for Phoenix though. They bring in three solid, if not spectacular, players in exchange for Bledsoe. Could they get something better? Maybe. But I like Turner's playmaking style alongside Booker.

17 Jul 2017 21:57:07
It's the only way to work within salary. If ny is letting melo go it needs to be worth it. I personally see them needing to dump Noah in the deal. Or keep melo and let him walk after season.

16 Jul 2017 23:19:49
Knicks get Brandon Knight,Solomon Hill and Jared Dudley

Rockets get Carmelo Anthony and Lance Thomas

Suns get Ryan Anderson and Omer Asik

Pelicans get Eric Bledsoe and Trevor Ariaza

17 Jul 2017 01:15:21
Why in the world would the Suns do that?

17 Jul 2017 01:19:30
Why would suns do this?

17 Jul 2017 04:03:11
Must be a pelicans fan

17 Jul 2017 06:14:45
Why would PHX do this? Easy answer is. they wouldn't. Move along, nothing to see here.

17 Jul 2017 18:38:50
Maybe if Phoenix gets the picks/ swap rights from all these teams for the next 6 years.

15 Jul 2017 18:10:21
Phoenix - New York - Denver

Denver get Bledsoe and Melo

New York get B. Knight and T. Chandler

Phoenix get Mudiay and Faried

Phx young Player and win their Big contracts to other

New York get good Pg and picks or.

Denver is new West contender with Melo bledsoe and milsap.

15 Jul 2017 18:58:25
Denver would have to offload more money/ salary.

15 Jul 2017 20:24:34
Wow, Horrible.

15 Jul 2017 20:59:46
Awesome deal for the Knicks.

16 Jul 2017 05:35:05
No one wins this trade, Denver gets an overrated PG in Beledso and Melo who doesn't want to play for anyone other than the Rockets. The Knicks Get Knight who isn't awful but the Kicks already have a lot of guards already and Chandler who is near the end of his career and making an absured amount of money for his production. And the Suns get Mudiay who is looking more and more like a bust, and Faried who is a little bit overhyped and is getting paid a lot. I just don't see any team being interested in this deal since it doesn't help the Knicks start their rebuild, it doesn't help the Suns finish their rebuild and it just doesn't help Denver at all. The Kicks just need to find a way to get Melo to Huston and get it over with.

15 Jul 2017 17:56:05
Phoenix - Denver - New York

Phx send bledsoe to NY
NY send Melo to Denver
Denver send Mudiay to phx

Phx get young Highlight mudiay
NY get top Pg
Denver become back Melo

16 Jul 2017 00:30:15
knight instead of bledsoe+ nuggets add arthur or faried.

13 Jul 2017 16:54:00
That trade is terrible for Phoenix. They give away arguably the best player in the trade and get back the two worst contracts.

14 Jul 2017 02:41:16
Mike dantoni will have to completely change his offense. His regular offensive scheme favors one ball handler then a hole lot of shooters. Now there's 3 ball dominant players and 2 players who have no 3 point range in this lineup.

13 Jul 2017 13:13:18

Rockets get Melo

Suns get Anderson

Nuggets get Bledsoe

Knicks get Faried

13 Jul 2017 13:41:13
Knicks bledsoe not faried.

13 Jul 2017 14:16:22
Salary doesn't work and doubt Suns want Anderson on that young team with Chriss, Bender, Williams and even Jackson able to play pf at times. I love Bledsoe to the Nuggets and if they could get him for only Faried that would be a complete steal. Knicks obviously would prefer Faried for themselves but Faried wouldn't be an awful return for Melo.

13 Jul 2017 01:22:20




Knicks throw both a 2nd maybe kuzminski and o Quinn. Ehhh anyone.

13 Jul 2017 02:54:13
Love for Melo isn't going to happen and why would Suns the Suns ever do this?

13 Jul 2017 15:56:18
Cavs get Courtney Lee as well.
Suns get love. Shump. Kuzminski and a 2nd.
Why not. Cavs upgrade with Lee over shump. D and actual offense. Melo/ love is a wash. And a 2nd or oquinn!?
Suns don't need Bledsoe. They don't attract f/ a in a stacked west. They get love for 3 years. Swap chandler with Noah who will be a great mentor to a young group a young in kuzminski and a 2nd. Hell I'll give them a first from Knicks to facilitate.

12 Jul 2017 07:08:58
Cleveland Cavs Moves

•Cavs-Suns trade
Cavs get Tyson Chandler, lesser of it's and Miami's 2021 1st, and saves money
Suns get Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, and better of Cleveland and Miami's 2021 1st

-Chandler gives the team a great veteran backup who can come in for Tristan Thompson and offer needed size, rebounding, and defense

-Sign Thabo Sefolosha 1yr minimum
-Sign Monta Ellis 1yr minimum
-Bring over Cedi Osman

PG: Irving, Calderon, Felder
SG: Smith, Korver, Ellis
SF: James, Sefolosha, Osman
PF: Love, Green, Jefferson
C: Thompson, Chandler, Tavares.

12 Jul 2017 13:29:47
I guess it works if they are able to get Sefolosha to replace Shumpert perimeter defense since otherwise the net of trade is zero. They could also just sign somebody like Tiago Splitter for the minimum.

12 Jul 2017 14:33:34
The only way the Cavs do this is if they get the first outright. They save some money, but their main concern right now is creating a roster that makes Lebron stay.

12 Jul 2017 16:39:50
Y'all do realize Chandler is 7'1, and averaged 8 points and 11 rebounds this past year? He is great Tristan Thompson insurance and he can play 15 minutes per game. He's also a great veteran and gives the team good size.

12 Jul 2017 19:32:07
NBA, yeah he's still a decent player, but can he even play against a team like the Warriors? If he were still a center that could control the middle of the floor and make up for the Cavs lackluster perimeter defenders than it would be a no brainer, but he can't anymore. The Cavs the Cavs need better perimeter defenders and they give up their 2nd best one for a player who can't match up with the only team the Cavs care about matching up with. They could get similiar production from players they could get for the minimum.

11 Jul 2017 19:45:35

Henson for Dudley

Bucks improve on their wing D.

Suns unload a vet player and with Henson replacing Len's value/skill level they can renounce his offer and make a pitch for KCP

11 Jul 2017 21:18:04
I don't think KCP would be a great fit in Phoenix. With Booker and Jackson likely their future at sg and sf spots I think he'd be an expensive backup and would probably prefer a team that could offer him at least a chance to compete for or grow into a starter role.

11 Jul 2017 21:38:14
Dudley played for the Bucks before and was traded away. Henson for B. Knight would be a better trade. Salaries match, and The Suns would get their "Rim Protector" they need, and Milwaukee would get "Back" their Combo PG/ SG they need! Bottom line, Bucks are looking to get younger, Not Older!

12 Jul 2017 01:29:57
Bucks improve wing defense with Dudley? only thing Dudley at this stage brings is veteran leadership.
