3 team deal

Memphis- Cleveland - Phoenix

Cavs get:
Chandler Warren

Memphis get:
JR Smith

Phoenix get:

Cavs free up cap early and free up minutes for Sexton while getting young forward in Warren

Memphis get shooting for a playoff run

Phoenix get a veteran pg that they where looking for while getting young forward in return in Osman

16 Oct 2018 05:14:08
So the Grizzlies move off one of the worst deals in the league for free?

Hill, Korver and Smith have a combine 7 million in guaranteed money after this year and Cedi looks like he could become a starting caliber player. Warren is the better prospect, but not by a ton. This is awful for the Cavs.

16 Oct 2018 06:08:22
Even if parsons has a 15, 5 and 5 season he's overpaid. Good for the grizzlies but overpaid and bad for the cavs here.

16 Oct 2018 01:23:42

PHO get Conley

MEM get Warren, Chandler, 1st rd pick via PHX, JVal, Danny Green

TOR gets Gasol


Shelvin Mack
Green/ Harrision/ Selden
Warren/ Parsons/ Temple
Jackson/ Anderson
JVal/ Chandler/ Rabb

Lowry/ FVF
OG/ Powell
Leonard/ Miles
Ibaka/ Siakam
Gasol/ Monroe.

15 Oct 2018 21:10:43
- 2nd pick

- Bender
- Reed

Suns need to move 5 Players, Mavs have two spots open could use a SG backup and a PF one. Reed goes with the minimum salary, for Bender Mavs could use MLE.

16 Oct 2018 00:04:00
You should ask for booker! I mean 2nd rd picks don’t just fall off trees.

16 Oct 2018 04:07:39
Second pick for Devin Booker I will accept this deal.

14 Oct 2018 19:36:44
Last minute trade,

The Suns trade T. J. Warren (SF) to the Bucks.

The Bucks trade M Dellavedova, (PG) and PF D.J. Wilson to the Suns. Salaries match.

Plus Phoenix gets the veteran PG their looking for. And a young PF in Wilson.

The Bucks get a backup SF they need behind Middleton.

All 3 players could use a change of scenery.


14 Oct 2018 21:22:20
The Suns could do better for Warren.

14 Oct 2018 21:37:38
The Suns probably could, But, They haven't. Warren is listed as 3rd String SF. salary is $11.5 Mil. a year. together Dellevedova and Wilson make 12.1 Mil. a year. salaries work, Plus, Phoenix has been looking for a backup veteran PG, and could use a young PF. This trade will allow the suns to keep all their picks, without sending any. The Bucks would do a headup trade, Allowing them to also keep PG Tim Fraizer. If the Suns can do better without adding a pick, Great for them!

14 Oct 2018 22:14:56
Warren is big enough to play some pf for them. It’s not like they can’t find minutes for him. Delly has 2 years left, is making close to 10 million and doesn’t even look like a competent back up point. There are free agent pgs that could give you the same thing Delly can, if not more. Wilson showed nothing last year. If they’re willing to give up Warren, they can do better. Why give up a solid young player on a a decent contract for 2 guys that may not give you anything for the same amount of money.

14 Oct 2018 22:56:13
Wilson isn't a huge bribe to deal with dellavedova's deal. Warren is worth more. Crawford would be great for one season and draft a PG in June.

14 Oct 2018 23:04:34
Its apparent Warren hasn't given the Suns much. If he had, He wouldn't be a 3rd stringer now. As far as playing some PF. Who would he replace? . Maybe the Suns should play Warren at PG? That's what they're looking for. As far as Dellavedova, Yes there are a lot better. Why then hasn't Phoenix called or trading for one of them? Plus, If Warren was really as good as you think he is, Why hasn't some other team traded for him yet? This trade I proposed would benefit both teams, While not giving up picks either way, and nothing more.

15 Oct 2018 13:57:30
Warren got much more value, the suns gm james jones wants to play booker at point and sign Crawford so this deal isn’t good for phx.

15 Oct 2018 20:51:17
Delly averaged 4.5 pts last year
Warren averaged 19pts
Big difference.

11 Oct 2018 14:57:25
The Suns get Rozier

The Celtics get the Suns 1st (top 10 protected dropping to 5, 3 and then unprotected)

11 Oct 2018 15:54:46
Celtics have spent a ton of time developing Rozier, and they could have four picks in the first round next June anyway. So that deal is not happening. Rozier will stick in Boston until at least July 1, when they'll have a good idea if Irving's knee is sound and if he's ready to re-sign. After this season they'll also know what's going on with Anthony Davis, and Rozier could be part of a deal there.

11 Oct 2018 16:12:06
How would rozier be a part of a deal as a free agent? Irving is in the fold long term and they won’t be able to keep Rozier. The money just isn’t there to give him a deal. All of those picks won’t convey next year and if they do you can turn them into more future assets at the worst or use them to get Davis. Keeping a steady stream of picks wouldn’t be a bad option given all of the talent they already have and how young they are. They could be set up for the next 15 years, if they play it right (which Ainge probably will) .

11 Oct 2018 16:56:29
Irving is not in the fold long term.
Rozier cannot be a free agent next July -- he can be a restricted free agent (if he doesn't sign a deal before Monday) .
I didn't say all of the picks will convey. I said they could convey.
If they knew they could get Davis for a boatload of first-rounders, they might consider moving Rozier. But not until then.

11 Oct 2018 17:00:06
Irving can say whatever he wants, but I wouldn't take him at his word. Teams have been burned too many times with that (Boozer, Aldridge to name two recent ones) . I wouldn't trade Rozier until Irving is signed (which obviously can't happen, because Rozier would be a free agent at that time) .

Matching whatever he gets and then flipping him the following year might be the best course of action for Boston. Or just let him walk this offseason if he gets a massive deal.

11 Oct 2018 18:04:00
I qs taken aback a bit by the articles written that the Celtics are trying to extend Rozier. I always thought he'd be traded, but I think they will get a deal done, which will be beneficial in the long run. IE. He would bring back a better package than he would of he were a pending free agent.
I think Irving will be true to his word, because all along this off season neither Ainge or the Celtics ever publicly panicked whenever those Irving rumors came out. I just think, they knew something that no one else knew. that they were confident that Irving would re-sign.

11 Oct 2018 07:45:51
Wolves send Jimmy Butler,
Suns send Josh Jackson and Tyson Chandler

So I think the Wolves take this in a heartbeat, it’s really a question of would the Suns try to speed up there window for Jimmy. I think Jimmy would work great with Booker as it would be two part time ball handlers who compliment each other really well. Booker provides elite spacing, Jimmy provides slashing and defense. The Suns line up would be:
Ryan Anderson

They could even match up with the Warriors line up of death better than most with one change.

Jimmy/ Steph
Mikal Bridges/ Klay
Booker/ Iggy
Ariza/ Durant
Ayton/ Draymond

Those are 2 line ups with a lot of spacing for Jimmy and Ayton.

11 Oct 2018 16:57:36
I like it. One of the more believable trades I have seen for Butler. Only problem is PHO not one of the teams Butler wants to play for. PHO would want to get a feel for his willingness to re-sign.

Wolves might ask for a draft pick. If Butler agrees to re-sign, it would be worth a 2021 or 2022 1st as well.

11 Oct 2018 22:24:03
ahhh perfect cause booker and Ayton are known to be so much better at defense then kat and Wiggins! Pretty sure jimmy would destroy the young suns team before he got on on the plane there.

10 Oct 2018 23:22:16

MIN receives: Warren, Bender, Bridges, MIL 2019 1st rd pick
-MIN gets a haul of prospects and a 1st rd pick for Butler. Maybe the best package a team could offer them.

PHX receives: Butler, Jones
- PHX rolls the dice and try to contend this year. Make Butler comfortable a la George-OKC. Sign a point guard next season(Kyrie or Kemba) and resign Butler.

2019-2020 lineup would be Kyrie, Booker, Butler, Jackson, Ayton. 6th man - Jones. Contenders.

11 Oct 2018 02:34:30
Oh Kyrie is going from Celtics to the suns Hmmm #%*€%#*¥.

11 Oct 2018 06:04:50
That is the best case scenario for PHX but Kemba would do as well.

10 Oct 2018 00:05:38

MIN trade: Butler, Dieng
Get: Dragic, Gasol, Mia 2019 1st, Tor 2019 1st (from SA).

MIA trade: Whiteside, Winslow, Dragic, 2019 1st.
Get: Butler, Dieng, Mills

SAS trade: Gasol, Mills, 2019 Tor 1st.
Get: Whiteside, Winslow.

Min can trade Teague or Dragic to PHO for Warren or Jackson.

10 Oct 2018 04:31:06
this one is better for the other two teams than min. and phx has no business trading one of those guys for a pg over 30.

09 Oct 2018 04:23:55
Bucks send: Dellavedova
Receive: Powell
Even out their roster, both on the same contract.

Suns send: Warren
Receive: Dellavedova, Barea, '20 2nd
Receive two veteran PGs who will be good locker room presences, and will space out the offense for their younger players.

Mavs send: Powell, Barea, '20 2nd
Receive: Warren
A starting 5 of DSJ, Doncic, Barnes, Warren, DJ will be young and fun to watch. Will also have cap space to add a star next offseason

09 Oct 2018 17:56:39
How about the Bucks send Dellavedova and D. J. Wilson to the Suns for Warren? Milwaukee can use a backup SF behind Middleton. No need to get Dallas involved. All 3 players could use a change of scenery.

09 Oct 2018 18:32:58
If I have to trade warren for dellavedova and barea then I'd want a 1st instead of a 2nd. Wouldn't need to be lottery.

08 Oct 2018 23:28:37
- Brunson
- Macon

- Bender
- Reed

Brunson is a promising player, at least NBA ready. Since Mavs have Smith and Barea they use his current project to sned him to Suns, since they miss hardly a PG.

Since Wolves ask for too much. If the team plays well, Mavs can try to sign Butler next year anyway.

Mavs should focus on Reed and Bender. Both will see not much minutes in Phonix with the arrival of Ayton Bridges. But Reed may be a backup for Wes and Bender may found a mentor on Dirk. Mavs would have some size since Bender is mobil and can score from everywhere but also protect inside.

DJ, Powell
Barnes, Dirk, Bender
Doncic, Barnes
Wes, Doncic, Reed
DSJ, Barea

Harris, Broekhoff, Smith, Kleber, Mejri

08 Oct 2018 23:03:15

WAS gets Butler, Gibson

MIN gets Otto Porter, Chandler, Warren, Bender, Troy Brown and 2nd rd pick via WAS

PHX gets Jeff Teague, Gorgui Dieng and 1st rd pick via MIN

Wall/ Rivers
Beal/ Meeks
Butler/ Oubre
Morris/ Gibson
Howard/ Smith

Tyus Jones/ Rose
Wiggins/ Troy Brown
Warren/ Deng
Porter/ Bender
Towns/ Chandler

Teague/ Caanan
Booker/ Jackson
Ariza/ Bridges
Dieng/ Anderson
Ayton/ Arhur.

08 Oct 2018 10:28:55

PHX receive: Noah, Lee, Ntilikina, Robinson

Solve PG problem, prospects with the same timeline as their core

NYK receives: Chandler, Warren, Bender, 2018 second rd pick

Gets rid of the distraction in Noah. Additional $15m+ in cap space next season, gain prospects. Bender can learn post moves from Kanter. Kanter can learn Defense from Chandler. Warren-THJ-Knox-Hezonja wing rotation looks promising.

08 Oct 2018 12:56:19
Pg problem needs a proven player not Frank.

08 Oct 2018 13:16:37
Knicks would never give up frank and Robinson to dump noah salary only to take on Warren. Frank is 2 yrs away from being the best on ball defender on any guard, hopefully passing and vision come thru as well. Potentially the next "Glove". Robinson is even better than Frank.

08 Oct 2018 14:24:01
Suns would never trade for a non-starting caliber PG.

08 Oct 2018 14:34:52
Well now, as a knicks fan, I can say, shizzee. you're evaluations of the prospects is absurd.

Frank is 2 years away from being the best defending guard in the league? Seeing as Murray, Olidapo and Holiday are all 3 all defensive players and guards and young. ill strongly disagree with that. Potentially the next glove? Just stop it. he's still fighting to be a fringe starter, let alone a potential hall of famer.

Then to say robinson is even better. he hasn't played a minute in the NBA. You are already anointing him as this insane prospect. you sound almost as ridiculous as II claiming that josh hart has kobe bryant potential.

08 Oct 2018 16:21:27
Shizzee, I’m also a Knicks fan, and you’re making us look bad here.

Robinson has looked completely lost so far this preseason, and while he has contributor potential, he’ll likely spend at least the first portion, of not the majority of the season in the G.

As for Frank, his ceiling is Shaun Livingston with a better jump shot and closer to his pre-injury athleticism. At gis ceiling, he’ll be a valuable sixth man, guarding multiple positions effectively, being a quality secondary ball handler, and making just enough open threes to keep teams honest.

08 Oct 2018 18:32:28
triangle. i posted it first, meaning you copied me. deal with it ;)

08 Oct 2018 03:12:07
Heat receive: Butler
Send: Richardson, Winslow, Bam, '19 & '20 2nd
Get the star for their roster and don't have to take on Dieng

Twolves receive: Richardson, Winslow, Bam, Shumpert
Send: Butler, Dieng, Jones
Bring in 3 players who fit their time line and a vet wing.

Kings receive: Dieng, Bucks 1st, '20 2nd
Send: Shumpert
Get a couple of picks for their cap space

Suns receive: Jones, '19 2nd
Send: Bucks 1st
Get a young PG who could start

08 Oct 2018 14:26:11
No 1st for Teague but a 1st for Jones? I wouldn't pay that.

07 Oct 2018 12:34:07
- Chandler
- Matthwes
- Reed
- Brunson
- 1st

- Teague
- Powell

- Dieng
- Butler

Suns get now there PG without losing a pick.

Mavs exchange the C backup and get a better version of Wes 3 & D with superstar offense.

Wolves get 55 CAP next year, 3 & D Wes (Wiggins need to take the offense) and young prospects in Brunson, Reed and a 1st. But first of all they get 55m CAP next year to offer max (100m 4y) to have a "great" young grid!
- Rozier
- and Brown or Winslow

07 Oct 2018 14:40:24
Mavs don't have 1st in 2 yrs. Mathews value has deminished. So unless you do Barnes for Butler no trade value worthy.

06 Oct 2018 04:23:41

LAL get Jimmy Butler & Tyson Chandler (exp)
- add a star next to Lebron and add depth at center. don't think they need to add more to be able to get Butler with the current situation

Pg Rondo/Hart/Caruso
Sg Butler/Stephenson
Sf Ingram/Beasley/Mykhailuk
Pf James/Kuzma/Wagner
Ce McGee/Chandler/Zubac

MIN get Lonzo Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (exp), Darrell Arthur (exp) & TJ Warren
- get 3 young players to move forward with Wiggins and Towns

Pg Ball/Rose/Jones
Sg Pope/Okogie
Sf Wiggins/Warren/Deng
Pf Gibson/Tolliver/Arthur
Ce Towns/Patton

PHX get Jeff Teague, Gorgui Dieng, 1st round pick LAL & 2nd round pick LAL
- get a veteran point guard to help this young team to compete for a playoff spot. They take Dieng while getting picks

Pg Teague/Okobo/Harrison
Sg Booker/Melton
Sf Ariza/Jackson/Bridges
Pf Anderson/Bender
Ce Ayton/Dieng/Holmes

05 Oct 2018 13:53:57
getting tired of Twolves not trading Butler..

Butler to Miami
J.Richardson and T.Johnson going Minny

additional, Wolves want Dieng out, trade him to Suns with Jones for Chandler and 2nd rd pick

and Heat wants Waiters out, send him to Kings with 1st rd picks for any expiring contract/s..

05 Oct 2018 14:39:49
You’d need to add a first to get rid of Dieng and why take back a bad contract and more salary while only getting back 2 mediocre players if you’re Minnesota? Butler is a top 15 player no matter what you think of his attitude.

05 Oct 2018 04:52:02
4 team trade

suns trade center Tyson chandler to timberwolves point guard tyus jones trade to the suns, timberwolves trade center gorgui dieng to the kings for sg ben mclemore to suns, timberwolves jimmy butler to heat center bam Adebayo, sf josh Richardson, and sg dion walters.

this was approved by espn nba trade machine

05 Oct 2018 09:48:13

05 Oct 2018 13:38:36
So kings get a crappy contract and no pick?

05 Oct 2018 17:11:49
Echo that. Impossible to follow without writing it all down.

05 Oct 2018 02:14:24
T-Wolves - Heat - Spurs - Suns

trade: Jimmy Butler
Receive: James Johnson, Justise Winslow, 2019 Heat 1st, 2019 Raptors 1st (from Spurs).

trade: Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson, Justise Winslow, 2019 1st.
Receive: Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol, Durell Arthur

Trade: Pau Gasol, Patty Mills, 2019 Toronto 1st.
Receive: Hassan Whiteside, Dragan Bender

Trade: Durell Arthur, Dragan Bender.
Receive: Patty Mills.

05 Oct 2018 12:31:26
Not a chance Minnesota takes back James Johnson's albatross of a contract.

Only one way for Miami to get Butler. No Richardson, no Butler.

05 Oct 2018 15:30:21
Minnesota has less leverage every day. Johnson is not an albatross. He is overpaid, but he can play. They get Winslow and 2 1st picks. May be the best offer they can get.

05 Oct 2018 16:00:29
James Johnson is solid. T. Johnson has the bad contract. I think James has really good value if you need a PF.

05 Oct 2018 16:15:04
James Johnson is signed for the same amount of years at Dieng for nearly as much money, is 3 or 4 years older, and can't shoot from 3. How does he help Minnesota?

05 Oct 2018 18:13:34
That is going way overboard! Dieng is going to cost to move. J. Johnson could be moved without costing anything. They are 2 different players, and the wolves would be far better off with Johnson than Dieng. I thought you were a wolves homer? Johnson defends the perimeter and the paint, Dieng barely gets up and down the floor.

04 Oct 2018 01:30:30

PHX gets Ibaka, Teague and 2nd rd pick via TOR

MIN gets Lowry, OG, Bender

TOR gets Butler, Dieng, and Warren

FVF/ Wright
Butler/ Green
Kwahi. Powell
Warren/ Siakam
Jval/ Dieng

Gibson/ Bender

Teague/ Okobo
Booker/ Jackson
Ariza/ Bridges
Ibaka/ Anderson
Ayton/ Chandler.

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.
