any thoughts?

Blazers/Cavs Trade

Blazers Receive: 8th overall pick, Kyle Korver, Jordan Clarkson

The Blazer get an aging but undoubtedly elite and potential hall of famer on the roster. Although he is far from what he once was, Kyle Korver can still shoot the ball efficiently and get buckets off the bench. They also receive Jordan Clarkson who is a good shooter that can fit at the 1 or the 2. The big return they get is the 7th overall pick. I believe that in a stacked draft class the Blazers could pick up somebody help them immediately. They didn't have an answer for the Pelicans strength and defense in their early and unexpected first round exit. If they could possibly snag Jaren Jackson Jr. or Mikal Bridges at 8, not only will they get skill, but they will get lengthier and more versatile. CJ is an undersized shooting guard who would be better benefited from being surrounded by bigger guys. He wasn't really an ideal fit in Portland although he did end up thriving with Damian Lillard throughout the regular season. The Blazers could get a lot better in this trade and possibly even see themselves back in the 2019 playoffs if they draft wisely.

2018 Starting 5
1-Damian Lillard
2-Jordan Clarkson
3-Evan Turner
4-Jaren Jackson Jr.?
5-Jusuf Nurkic

Cavs Receive: CJ McCollum, Al Farouq Aminu

The Cavs need another scorer next to Lebron and some defense. In this trade, the Cavs receive Al Farouq-Aminu who is a defensive and athletic freak. He would be a good spark off the bench or in the starting lineup to provide rim protection, make plays and bring some energy and toughness to the floor. The Cavs also need some more scoring and more star power alongside Lebron. Let's be honest, Lebron and the Sixers isn't really a good fit with Ben Simmons manning the show. Going to the Lakers would be pointless because although they have the cap and assets to go out and acquire big name player, they are in a brutal Western Conference with a young and inexperience coach and roster. Finally there are the Rockets. Although the Rockets are arguably the best team in the West right now, I really don't see Lebron going out there and being happy. D'Antoni would have a lot of authority and he'd be sharing the ball with James Harden+Chris Paul. His best bet is to stay in Clevland, restock the team and continue to dominate the East. In the 2017-2018 playoffs, through the first 4 games Lebron has averaged about 33 points per game while not a single other Cavs player has scored above 20. He needs scoring. CJ McCollum will give him that.

2018 Starting 5
1-George Hill
2-CJ McCollum
3-Lebron James
4-Al-Farouq Aminu
5-Kevin Love

24 Apr 2018 03:40:04
Wait you seriously called Korver not only undoubtedly elite. But a potential hall of gamer? 4/ 20 is over. Lay off the weed.

24 Apr 2018 03:44:28
Cavs might need to give up some more, but I like the frame work behind it.

24 Apr 2018 14:38:26
Hamburger I don't know if you watch the NBA but he is one of the best 3 point shooters of all time. He's old now but used to be a beast for the Hawks. Yeah probably not a hall of famer I got carried away there. But he would be a good addition to the Hawks since they need a wing badly.

24 Apr 2018 15:36:27
The only Hall of Fame Korver is going to might be the Bad Haircut Hall of Fame. You definitely over-valuing him.

23 Apr 2018 17:17:49
Mavericks - Trail Blazers

Mavericks gets:
24th pick
2019 2nd (Lakers or Timberwolves)
2021 2nd (Heat)

Trail Blazers gets:

23 Apr 2018 20:13:25
If Portland could unload two bad contracts, pick up an above average SF, and only give up one first, I think they’d do cartwheels.

22 Apr 2018 11:00:17
LA: D Lillard

Port: L Ball+ K Love

Cle: Deng+Harkless+ 24 pick+25pick+ 1rnd pick LA 2019+ 1rnd pick Portland 2019

LA signs LBJ Cousins and P George
Nike will compensate the discount they all take on their contracts.
Anthony signs with the mid level exception

SF:P George/C anthony

Ball is a good defender and a good distributor, so i think he's going to be a great combo with McCollum.
K Love can still be a 20-10 guy in Portland, that needs a second scorer.

Cleveland take two bad contracts for four picks, so they can draft prospects and start a rebuilt.

22 Apr 2018 14:24:12
You have a rather glaring omission -- namely, Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard demanding that they be traded to the Lakers for future second-round draft picks.

22 Apr 2018 15:36:59
nah, they should go to Boston :-p.

22 Apr 2018 16:34:13
didn't durant take 26 instead of 36. So cousins George and James can do the same just 25 each. But for this to work Lakers would have to include Ingram to cavs.
Most the contending teams pf are no threat on offense so Melo should be safe. Like raptors Boston Philly golden state and Houston. Just would have trouble guarding Davis so Melo and James can switch positions where James guards him.

22 Apr 2018 17:25:18
Why would they want Melo? At this point, he's a mediocre offensive player that gives you nothing else. They'd be much better off keeping Ingram and if they can't do that there are plenty of other wings you'd be better off going after.

22 Apr 2018 18:08:29
Melo would be a great sixth man.

23 Apr 2018 02:20:55
Why don't they just find a way to sign Steph Curry, Jimmy Butler, and Kawhi to minimum contracts as well?

23 Apr 2018 19:23:51
Lakers lineup

P. G. Lillard

S. G George

S. F James


C Cousins

6th Melo

The Fantasy Island Lakers. Because it ain't never happening.

22 Apr 2018 09:30:02
Portland blows it up

Phoe: Lillard

Cle: McCollum

Phoe: T Thompson+ Smith+ B Knight+ Bender+J Jackson+Osman+ 1rnd pick Suns+ 1rnd pick Cle

Portland draft: Ayton and Young


22 Apr 2018 17:45:31
Did someone slip something into your cocoa this morning or what? You cannot be serious to think that PHX would give up what might be the #1 pick in the Draft plus Knight, Bender, AND Josh Jackson. for Lillard? Not even close to a chance of this happening! Also. the Suns are KEEPING that pick.

22 Apr 2018 18:09:43
D Lillard is a top three pointguard.

22 Apr 2018 21:05:50
He WAS a top 3 PG. One that hasn't taken PORT anywhere and that is still way too much to give up.

22 Apr 2018 21:40:53
Wait, are you saying Lillard was a top 3 PG a week ago, but isn't anymore? That’s an overreaction to 4 games.

AD also hasn’t taken his team anywhere.

That said, yeah, it’s probably a bit too much for Lillard. Taking out Bender closes the gap.

23 Apr 2018 02:10:06
AD is also injured a lot more than Lillard so far in their careers. Port has had more talent than NOLA until recently and IMO, Lillard might fall more into the overrated group than the top 3 best PG column after this latest failing. Besides that, who would play the PG for PORT after a deal like this? Young? Right. Yeah, no deal from all sides.

23 Apr 2018 02:21:42
Lillard is definitely not a top 3 PG.
Steph, Westbrook, CP3, Kyrie all easily ahead of him.

23 Apr 2018 03:39:53
Gasupo explain how you have lillard going to the Lakers for sent and a couple late first rounders. Yet Phoenix has to give up potentially the #1 overall pick, plus Jackson and bender? Are you and rkenne related?

23 Apr 2018 17:18:08
AD hasn't taken his team anywhere? Wow! That comment is about as preposterous as this trade idea.

22 Apr 2018 05:51:50

Cavs get Damian Lillard, Mo Harkless, Meyers Leonard, and #24 pick

Blazers get Kevin Love, George Hill, and #8 pick.

22 Apr 2018 07:54:36
Blazers say no.

22 Apr 2018 04:25:42
Jordan Clarkson,Cedi Osman,Jr smith,Brk pick to Portland for Damian Lillard

21 Apr 2018 23:59:22
The 76ers get Mcollum

The Blazers get Fultz, Bayless and 18 and 19 Philly 1sts

22 Apr 2018 00:36:47
Swap the 19 pick with the lakers pick (projected #10 I believe) . I’d also want Saric if I’m Portland. Maybe a Harkless/ Saric swap too.

22 Apr 2018 01:16:32
Bmiller, I like McCollum, but I can't see anyone giving up that for him. He's a great offensive player, but he's a combo guard with defensive limitations.

22 Apr 2018 07:26:41
Without the 10th pick you’re giving up two very late firsts, and guy with minimal value, and a guy with no value.

Saric, Fultz, and 10 seems positive for both teams. Phili gets a guaranteed talent and a third star to push them to a contender. Portland gets two high potential assets and a decent role player.

22 Apr 2018 09:36:45
I agree with Rkenne.
McCollum is good, but you don't get equal value for him in a trade.

Portland is going nowhere with the duo Lillard-McCollum, so getting Fultz is a great return and the draft picks are a good bonus.

22 Apr 2018 11:54:33
Bmiller, I think the value I'm putting on Fultz and you're putting on Fultz are just far apart. I think, he's shown a ton since he came back. He looks like he can be an elite passer, he's an elite athlete, and he's got the size to guard wings. While I get the concern about his shot, it looks good and he was a solid 3 point shooter in college. I'd put money on him being a decent 3 point shooter next year. I think his value is still atleast 80 or 90 percent of what it was. He dealt with a weird injury and the 76ers didn't handle it well at the beginning of the year, but he seems like he's past it and I wouldn't imagine it be an issue going forward. If you threw him in this draft, he would probably still be a top 3 pick.

22 Apr 2018 11:56:07
Also, Portland saves like 10 million this year and just shy of 20 million next year in this deal. That's pretty big for a team with Portland's cap issues.

22 Apr 2018 14:22:25
Yeah, I just can’t value Fultz that high after 14 games. He’s got the value of a mid teens pick to me. If they trade McCollum for Fultz, best case scenario they end up with someone as good as McCollum and they’re in the same situation they already were in. Worst case Fultz flops, and they waste a year or two.

21 Apr 2018 22:28:20
Bulls sign and trade Zach Lavine and Bobby Portis and Justin Holiday to Portland plus 2019 bulls first for CJ McCollum and Al Fruq Aminu

Bulls also with pels pick take Mitchell Robinson and MPJ with there pick

Sign Jursik Nurkic sign KCP sign Fred van leet.

20 Apr 2018 21:46:12
Portland: Sabonis+Bogdanovic

Suns: McCollum+ C Joseph

Indy: T Chandler+ B Knight+ 1rnd pick Suns

Portland saves money and they get a young center on a rookie contract

The suns get a star

Indy can take the bad contracts, not signing any free agents. And they can draft a young star.

20 Apr 2018 22:41:41
That's not enough for McCollum.

20 Apr 2018 23:18:07
Why would phoenix trade possibly the #1 pick for a player who plays the same position as booker? Try doing some research before you post bogus trades. Phoenix wouldn't give up #1 for McCollum even if they didn't have booker.

21 Apr 2018 03:43:05
Lillard maybe to Suns for the pick and Josh Jackson. No need to complicate things. Suns can take back some bad contracts.

19 Apr 2018 21:41:22
Hawks - Knicks

Hawks gets:
9th pick
37th pick

Knicks gets:
19th pick
30th pick
33rd pick
2019 1st rd pick (Cavs)
2020 2nd rd pick (Trail Blazers)

19 Apr 2018 22:19:31
Knicks pass.

19 Apr 2018 23:26:33
Pretty terrible for the Knicks. The Cavs pick is top 10 protected the next two years and if it doesn't convey in 2020 it's 2 2nd round picks. So If Lebron stays, it's a pick on the 20s and if he leaves, it's likely 2 2nds.

20 Apr 2018 13:14:34
10 spots is a huge drop for a rebuilding team, and 2nd's are never sure fire NBA'ers. I don't like it for the Knicks.

19 Apr 2018 02:29:59
Cavs if Lebron goes bye bye

Trade Kevin love to philly for Dario Saric,Jerry's Bayless,pick 10,pick 38,furkan Korkmaz,Justin Anderson,2022 sixers 1st top 9 protected

Sign a bunch of g league prospects,young players

19 Apr 2018 07:07:55
that is way, way too much for kevin love.
and the 2nd trade would be more fair if hill was the one being packaged with assets.
and that pick trade with chi is lopsided too.
smith and robinson will likely be gone by those stages of the draft also.
but nice try trying to danny ainge a chest of draft picks.

19 Apr 2018 12:25:40
If Minnesota wanted Hill, they would have signed him last year instead of Teague.

16 Apr 2018 19:27:09
The Cavs get McCollum, Aminu, Mahimi, D Green, Mills, and Aldridge

Give Hill, Smith, Love, Korver, Clarksom Nance, Zizic, Osman, 2 1sts and a 2nd

The Wizards get Love, Clarkson, Harkless, korver, and Zizic

Give Mahimi, Gortat, Morris, Smith, Satiransky, Oubre and 3 1sts and a 2nd

The Spurs get Jr Smith(buyout), Hill(buyout), Gortat(Waive) ,Jason Smith(waive) Satoransky, Oubre, Osman, Nance, Swanigan, Z Collins, the 8th pick(cle), the 15 pick(Wash), the 24th pick (port), a 2020 Washington 1st, 2020 Portland 1st, Cavs 2021 1st, Washinton's 22 1st and a 2nd from each plus 20 million in immediate savings and 70 million in savings next year. The Spurs basically clear the books outside of rookie contracts.

The Spurs give Leonard, Aldridge, Green, Gay, Gasol, and Mills

The Trail Blazers get Leonard, Gay, Gasol, and Morris

The Blazers give McCollum, Aminu, Harkless, Collins, Swanigan, 2 1st and a 2nd

13 Apr 2018 21:56:14
Spurs retool

The Spurs get Mcollum, Aminu, Walker, Drummond and the 2022 1st from Portland

Portland gets Leonard, Aldridge, and Mills(exception)

The Hornets get Gasol(buyout), Ish Smith(expiring), Swannigan, Murray and the 18 and 20 Spurs 1sts plus 17 million in savings this year and almost 40 million next year.

The Pistons get Batum, Lamb, Collins, and the 18 and 20 Portland 1sts

14 Apr 2018 11:47:29
If Walker and Leonard are headed to Portland, then McCollum and Lillard are headed out.

14 Apr 2018 13:14:43
Aldridge back to POR? The guy who left to go back to his home state? Kawhi in POR? 2 future 1sts, an 18, 2 1sts from last season's draft, McCollum, and Aminu? I think POR isn't doing enough here. Should probably throw in Lillard, and 5 year in the future protected 1st. Why would Hornets buy out Gasol, but can't waive Noah?

14 Apr 2018 14:01:49
To jorga’s Point, Aldridge wouldn’t be welcome back in Portland. That bridge was burned, then pissed on, then burned again.

14 Apr 2018 14:11:45
Jorga, Noah has 2 years guaranteed at 18 million after this season and Gasol has 1 year fully guaranteed and only 6 million guaranteed in the second year. Noah may not even be able to make a team. Gasol can still get a contract in the league.

14 Apr 2018 14:41:47
You're probably right BMiller, I probably should have broken it into two trades and found a third team for Aldridge that gave the Blazers more cap savings.

12 Apr 2018 16:20:50
Cavs off-season

Spurs get Lebron and Patterson

Cavs get Gasol, Murray, Singler, Abrines 2 Spurs 1st, the Thunder 22 1st top 5 protected and a 2nd

OKC gets Korver and Danny Green

2nd trade

The Cavs get Turner, Harkless, Leonard, Sabonis, Swanigan, 19 and 21 1sts , and 18 and 20 Pacers 1sts

The Pacers get Love and Hill

Portland gets Thad Young, Clarkson, Bogdonavic and Jefferson

3rd trade
The Knicks get Jr Smith (buyout), Singler and Nance

The Cavs get Noah and the Knicks 18 1st

Cavs New roster

Pg Murray
Sg Hood/ Abrines
Sf Osman/Harkless/Turner
Pf Swanigan/ Gasol
C Sabonis/Zizic/ Leonard/Noah
Payroll approximately 110 million including the 18 picks.
+ 18 Nets, Knicks, Spurs and Pacers 1sts
19 Cavs (if in the top 10), Portland 1sts
20 Cavs, Spurs, Pacers 1sts
21 Cavs, Portland 1sts
22 Cavs, Thunder 1sts

I also think they should be willing to deal Gasol(19-20 is only partially guaranteed), Harkless, Abrines, Hood, and Murray at the deadline for the right price (in that order). Gasol for 1st if someone wants to move a big contract, Harkless and Abrines for a 2nd or 2, a young player with some potential, or a some decent cap relief. Hood for mid 1st round pick and some cap relief and Murray for a potetial top 10 pick. Potentially make a run at Wiggins if the Cavs can get him cheap.

Buyout Turner, Leonard, Noah, and possibly Gasol ans Harkless next summer. Even if they can only save a few million from each, it should keen them out of the luxury tax.

15 Apr 2018 00:37:44
Trades have to work for all parties involved. If you think the Pacers would give up 2 players and 2 first round picks to a division rival along with 2 additional players to another team and then only receive 2 players in return your crazy.

15 Apr 2018 04:49:03
Trades are suppose to work for all party involved. If you think the Pacers would trade 2 young up and coming players and 2 first round draft picks to a division rival and 3 other players for a pg whose best days are behind him, and an overpaid PF you're crazy.

11 Apr 2018 17:32:59
The Cavs get the Mozgov, Carroll, Aminu, Allen, and the Lakers picks

Philly gets Crabbe, Clarkson and the Brooklyn pick

The Blazers get a Brooklyn 2nd

Brooklyn gets Thompson, Smith(buyout), Korver(buyout), Bayless, Zizic, and Philly's 1st

11 Apr 2018 17:51:12
Why would POR trade 7mil Aminu for a 2nd? His contract is friendly, and it doesn't provide much as far as needed cap room.

11 Apr 2018 18:07:51
Agreed with Jorga. I’m a huge Aminu fan. He’s a fantastic defender, a solid rebounder, a good three point shooter, and is cheap. He’s everything that team needs.

11 Apr 2018 18:32:27
I was trying to figure out a way to fit Leonard in as well and couldn't figure out how without ruining it for the other teams. They clearly need to cut salary unless they're going to let Nurkic walk. I think Nurkic is more important to them than Aminu and Aminu is probably the only contract of any size that's movable without including a 1st.

11 Apr 2018 19:51:03
Aminu's salary isn't going to make much of a difference. It would just add to the losses of Davis, Napier, Connaughton.

11 Apr 2018 21:19:57
Why would cavs do this.

11 Apr 2018 23:16:06
They get 2 big athletic perimeter defenders that can shoot. They save 10 million dollars. They get a good young center in Allen with some size and the only hole it leaves on the roster is at back up pg. at 10 or 11, one of Sexton, Young or Gilgeous Alexander should be available. They end up with a much better defense without losing much of value. Obviously, if they land in the top 3 via the lottery, it changes this a ton.

09 Apr 2018 07:41:05
i'm spurs fan and i want the best to them if leonard don't want to my team ok trade him
spurs offseason moves

4 team trade

sign tyreke evans or avery bradley and nerlens noel or javale mcgee

any thoughts if leonard leaves?

09 Apr 2018 11:26:19
If i got this right, Spurs would have 2 Aminus on their roster and Cabs would have 2 McCollums, because you've just send Aminu two times to Spurs and McCollum two times to Cavs.

09 Apr 2018 13:46:57
They’re obviously two variations of the same trade tonchcorkins. Perhaps look at the whole post before commenting.

09 Apr 2018 18:33:36
I am sorry for making this kind of mistake.

09 Apr 2018 20:36:21
Yeah, this thing is so muddled. In the first I don't see the Cavs giving up the Brooklyn pick and Love for McCollum.

I also don't think the Spurs get enough in either trade.

04 Apr 2018 12:21:27
I think East are all set now for playoffs..
Raptors, Celtics, Cavaliers, Sixers
Pacers, Wizards, Bucks, and Heat

West lockup teams: Rockets, Warriors and Blazers
Its up to these 7 teams fighting for 5 spots left:
Spurs, Thunder, Wolves, Jazz, Pelicans, Nuggets and Clippers

06 Apr 2018 00:54:19
Thanks, Captain Obvious.

nba trade machine approveds

if kawhi leonard demand trade

hornets spurs and trailblazers

hornets receive cj mccollum, pau gasol and blazers 2018 1st rd pk total of (40m)

spurs receive dwight howard, maurice harkless and hornets 2018 1st rd pk lottery protected and 2019 2nd rd pk via blazers total of (33.7m)

trailblazers receive kawhi leonard, nicolas batum and spurs 2018 1st rd pk total of (42.1m)

why hornets agree
hornets willing to seek another guards you can pair along side with kemba walker, kemba along with cj mccollum would dangerous backcourt in east and adding pau gasol you can shoot 3s and pass would be acceptable

why spurs agree
adding dwight howard with LMA in frontcourt should one of dangerous frontcourt dou in the nba howard can 20points 20rebounds and 5block guy and also pop can fix the free throw of dwight and adding harkless who can 3 and d guys need 2-3 years to improve his talent and adding pick like hornets picks you can draft kevin knox miles bridges or mikal bridges is one acceptable

why blazers agree
gm of the trailblazers know he can win championship with lillard and mccollum in the team adding leonard on the team who have championship experience and finals mvp two times defensive of the year is one of the trade assets and adding batum who is ex teammates of lillard is good one

hornets starting 5
pg walker

spurs starting 5
pg murray

trailblazers starting 5

trailblazers fan agree or disagree

31 Mar 2018 14:35:07
That's absolutely terrible for the Spurs. They get 1st and 2 fairly bad contracts for Kawhi and they give up a 1st?

Also, outside of the pick, the Hornets give up nothing of value. They'd have to give up that pick just to get rid of all those contracts. I'm not sure how the end up with Mcollum or the 1st.

The Hornets should just be cut out of the deal. Mcollum, a 1st and maybe a salary dump and something else small wouldn't be a terrible deal for the Spurs like Swanigan.

31 Mar 2018 14:52:19
Ambitious proposal but the Spurs definitely pass.

31 Mar 2018 14:58:46
all do howard is in bad contract but he is now back in his old form recently he join love and moses malone in 32 points and 30 rebound in nba history howard is now worth it in his bad contract maybe harkless is useless but dwight is now good player and maybe spurs pick should not go and mccollum is a good players his MIP last to years and is now 45% in the field and 40% in the three point territory and we all know this nba draft player or incoming rookie needs 1+ year to be legit player and cj mccollum is now legit player in nba and hornets alsmot dump ( cut ) salary howard is 23.5m and batum is 22.4m.

Howard plays great 6 games a year. Paid way too much. And is a flat out diva. He has little value yet somehow you think that’s the center piece for Leonard? Get out of here.

no howard is not my center piece for leonard.

This is basically two players that the Spurs don't want that are both overpaid. Batum is starting to look like one of the worst contracts in the league and Howard isn't a player Pop will deal with. Then you have the Spurs not getting a first this year since there is lottery protection on the pick they're getting from a lotter team and they give up a pick that's a not that far from 16. They're giving up a top 5 player to take on bad money and delay their pick. It's 100 percent terrible for the Spurs. like the Spurs shouldn't do this trade even if you replaced Kawhi with a 20 million bag of rocks.

Also Dwight isn't in old form. He's rebounding well and maybe not blowing up the team, but he isn't an allstar anymore or a DPOY candidate, he's a liability late in games on offense, he can't run the floor like he used to, and he isn't helping the team win.

FYI. When you list the player first. It makes him the center piece. Especially when the rest of the assets for a top 5 player is not that great and you are ranting about how Howard is back and basically the best center in the league ever.

Miami: K Love+2rnd pick Portland+return 2rnd pick 2024

Portland: H Whiteside

Cleveland: Turner+ Collins+ 1rnd pick Portland

POR is all in with Nurkic, can't see them having to pay him what Whiteside costs, and having both on the same team. Like it as a way to dump Turner though. Just have to do another deal to get rid of Whiteside. Collins shoots the 3 so he and Nurkic can play at the same time. Whiteside, not so much.

Is this assuming Lebron walks?

Cut Miami out, and just send love to Portland. He’s the forward they need, they already have their starting center.
