Pels get McCollum. Leonard, Harkless
2019, 2021 Portland 1st

Blazers get Davis Moore Hill

20 Feb 2019 00:47:29
Big pass from Pels.

20 Feb 2019 01:19:09
Not as good as Boston offer.

20 Feb 2019 01:46:59
Did the Blazers hire Dell Demps.

20 Feb 2019 16:36:20
It would have to include Collins and Simons as well at least. All of Portland's assets and firsts.

15 Feb 2019 08:42:19
Markieff goes to Thunder and Kanter to Blazers.. So does it means Melo will be signing with the Lakers and play the rest of 25 games??

15 Feb 2019 13:29:46
Not sure how signing Melo helps develop the young Lakers core players.

15 Feb 2019 18:13:53
The young core is temporary. Melo and Lebron about about start uncle drew part 2 in LA.

15 Feb 2019 18:23:20
Melo goes to big 3.

15 Feb 2019 20:41:27
Gotta develop the young core to increase their trade value. Not seeing Melo helping with that.

15 Feb 2019 23:55:59
Melo's last sound bite was heavily laden with retirement talk. There is no team for him that will enhance his legacy.

11 Feb 2019 20:30:20
Would you have agreed for the proposal

Knicks: Smith Jr. 2 x 1st
Mavs: Porzingis

Would you have?? Probably? not? : )

But for now the near future is bright. Cry or die. It is.

Mavs will add three good pieces to become quite good! And the can do it simply as FA or small trades and they have the crazy Exception of 21m as well!

Center: Favors or Vucevic
Forward: Aminu or Leonard!
Guard: Rubio or Dunn

I would like all of them. Maybe Leonard is an amazing player but maybe Mavs should use Lucaps as their go to guys?

A:
Sign FA Center: Favors or Vucevic? What do you think?

B: Sign FA Aminu (In Por he is lost in the non scoring frontcourt, as a defender and sidekick to Lukaps he would be shin again! He and FinneyS could lock down the opponents scorer!)

C:
Sign Rubio or trade Brunson for Dunn (Dunn would be nice! Young defender and scorer, but not a playmaker, why he is not perfect fit for Chicago or others since he also not a SG! - But as the sidekick for Doncic as the playmaker he could be amazing! - Rubio as well and he has experience)

Vucevic, Powell
Porzingis, Maxi
Aminu, Finney-S
Doncic, Hardaway
Dunn, Burke

OR

Favors, Powell
Porzingis, Maxi
Leonard, Finney-S
Doncic, Hardaway
Rubio, Brunson

11 Feb 2019 22:57:58
I think a 3 d pg is better. A Beverly type.

12 Feb 2019 00:55:45
Okay, so that looks like a 6th seed in the West. nice job?

12 Feb 2019 01:59:04
Rubio not being dealt at the deadline said a lot. Aminu too. Teams generally want to re-sign expirings when kept after deadline. (starters on good teams) Robert Williams would be a good pick-up over Favors and Vucevic. Young, defensive, good size, cheap. Powell holds it down, and is under contract another season. Prying williams from BOS could be rough. Use cap around deadline for assets. Pass on Dunn CHI wants too much so far.

12 Feb 2019 02:00:37
Biggest Vucevic fan I know.

12 Feb 2019 02:11:58
Leonard left the best Texas team. He is not going back. Good luck with that team. Sloth is garbage.

12 Feb 2019 02:13:50
40 mil cap saved too. You don't have cap for Rubio and Favors. don't forget Lee :)

12 Feb 2019 10:54:26
A: Vucevic is playing for a new contract, he's a good player, but a bad defender. I think Favors is more usefull, if they can sign him for a reasonable price

B: I don't think Leonard would come, he didn't like Texas. I would sign Bullock, a good 3&D guy.

C:Dunn would be a good fit, i don't think he becomes an all star, but he's a good roll player in that team.

09 Feb 2019 22:10:16
What Donzingis needs are Players arround that can move the ball, defend and hit open Looks insinde and outside! And experience!

I would not go for Leonard or Thompson. Mavs have set their star player(s) - two of them. Not only the Spotlight also the scoring and to get become the go to guy in critical moments is part of it to be able to have the good chemistry.

Midterm Donzingis has 70m cap per year. So also the money should be considered.

God Thing to have Doncic on the rookie contract and Prozingis not such a high cap hit as he will get on money (30m ++).

So the Mavs should trade at the end of june for their player to be able to extend the contract for next season instead of sign FA, what would probably more difficult in view of CAP.

Experience, defense, skills to move and score the ball:

- Rubio, Aminu, Vucevic

Magic:
- 2nd 2019
Mavs:
- Vucevic (Tradeexeption)
- Rubio (CAP)
- Aminu (Tradeexecption)
Utah:
- Burke
Portland:
- Broekhoff, future 2nd

Send Lee with 1y on contract and a 2nd to a team to free up the grid spot.

So with july 1 Mavs have all their player on the roster or at least some (bird) rights ot resign also over the CAP.

Sign Rubio 5y 60m
Sign Vucevic 5y 130m
Sign Prozingis 5y 158m
Sign Aminu (full MLE) 3y 23m

Resign Maxi, (Dirk to travel with the guys and shoot some 3s:), Finney-S, Harris, Barea for the money on the books.

And start to contend:

Vucevic, Powell, Antetokounpo
Prozingis, Kleber, Dirk
Aminu, Finney-S, Jackson
Doncic, Hardaway, Harris
Rubio, Brunson, Barea

Possibly and assumed Rubio, Amniu and Vucevic are happy and willing to sign at Mavs. Would be the oversee starting 5 : )

09 Feb 2019 23:46:40
Defense.

10 Feb 2019 14:12:38
Soooo can you trade for players on expiring deals like Rubio after the trade deadline?

No, players must be under contract for the following year in order to traded after the playoffs and before the start of the next season/ free agency.

This applies to expiring contracts, upcoming RFAs, and players with team or player options for the next season.

10 Feb 2019 15:21:21
A) donzingis is the worst nickname I’ve ever heard. It’s like a porn super villain mixed with an STD.

B) Vucevic is one of a teams big 3? You want to max out Vucevic? That team will be a failure.

10 Feb 2019 16:10:08
Before the Kings tied up $25 mil of next year salary cap in Harrison Barnes, I was down with the Kings offering Vucevic 3yrs $60 mil.

10 Feb 2019 19:48:00
let’s try a different trade, every trade you post has Vucevic going to the Mavs.

10 Feb 2019 20:51:37
Sloth and unicorn 🤣🤣.

11 Feb 2019 00:33:34
Donzingis .

Worst ever? NO! Do you think:

Procic would be better? ;)

Don-Zingis maybe?
Lukaps? . alle oops =)

BTW the only smart guy here in is Fredman. You can trade players end of june . but as he told us, only with a contract for next year, so Mavs have to go with FA to accomplish my plan. If you guys think Vucevic could be signed by 20m per year . I take him.

To have still a 30 of june trade, maybe Jackson for Crowder? Think Crowder would be the most perfect fit to Lukaps :=) )

11 Feb 2019 04:05:50
You are going to get a lot of disagree just becsuse you called me smart.

07 Feb 2019 04:38:35
POR- NO- LA DEAL

POR gets J Holiday, B Ingram, N Mirotic

NO gets L Ball, K Kuzma, CJ McCollum, E Turner, M Leonard, A Simons, 4 1st rounders (2 from POR and 2 from LA)

LA gets A Davis, M Harkless

May need to add small pieces to get salary match...

This gets Davis to LA along with a defender. Gives POR better balance around Dame and off some bad contracts in return for Cj and 1st rounders. And NO gets a huge haul of talent, young but ready players and draft picks.

POR lineup- Dame/Holiday/Ingram/Aminu/Nurk
Curry/Hood/Laymen/Mirotic/Collins

07 Feb 2019 04:46:22
I think Por would have to add Nurkic or Collins to Pels.

07 Feb 2019 06:13:04
Trade is horrible. Justin is on grizzlies.

Drew holiday is better than McCollum. How exactly do blazers end up with Ingram. Delusional.

07 Feb 2019 06:31:53
It’s Jrue Holiday.

07 Feb 2019 13:40:03
Switch ingram and ball and maybe. NOLA doesn't want ball.

05 Feb 2019 03:36:04
Por Orlando

Portland gets
-Aaron Gordon
-evan fournier

Orlando gets
-cj
-evan Turner
2019 lotto protected first

Orlando gets a better top end talent and a back court of cj and Turner that can actually be competitive in the east. Portland gets a better overall cast and better group around Lillard

05 Feb 2019 04:07:55
How do you give up by far the best player in a deal and a 1st? Portland says a quick no.

05 Feb 2019 04:46:35
To help offset the Turner contract, and Portland doesn't need more youth.

04 Feb 2019 23:09:06
NO-POR

New Orleans Receives:
Mo Harkless
2019 1st Rd Pick (Unprotected)

Portland Receives:
Nikola Mirotic

05 Feb 2019 03:30:48
This should happen.

04 Feb 2019 18:49:10
Portland - Washington

Blazers- harkless, Turner, this year lotto prot. First

Wizards- porter

Blazers take on porters big contract in hopes that he can be the final peice in the starting unit. After the Hood trade it looks like there will be another move to come to open up mins for him. And this seems to make Sense.

Wizards have one year less to pay in contracts and get a first for taking on worse players.

04 Feb 2019 23:02:53
Nurkic
Aminu
Hood/ porter
McCollum
Lillard

I'm not following?

03 Feb 2019 22:50:33
Portland Trade Evan Turner
2019 first round pick &
2020 second round pick (unprotected)

Pelicans Trade Wesley Johnson NIkola Mirotic

Portland receive Wesley Johnson NIkola Mirotic

Pelicans receive Evan Turner
2019 first round pick from Portland &
2020 second round pick (unprotected) from Portland

Salary Match

03 Feb 2019 16:22:31
Bulls trade Portland

Portland gets portis

Bulls get anfernee simons

Bulls get future pg possibly

Portland is in win mode now

03 Feb 2019 01:15:12
Portland trades Leonard, Baldwin IV, Curry and 2019 1st rounder

Sacramento trades Ben MacLemore and Skal Labrissierre

Sacramento is also taking on just enough salary to get Portland under the luxury tax cap this year as well as enough future salary for Portland to be near the salary cap for next year.

03 Feb 2019 04:38:06
Portland is putting their first in play to either move one of their large, bad contracts (ie. Turner), or improve the squad. This deal does neither, no from Blazers.

03 Feb 2019 05:54:18
Turner +1st for Randolph then.

And hopefully Portland can pay cash for Chicago to take Seth Curry to get the team below the luxury tax.

02 Feb 2019 11:15:36
PORTLAND-NEW ORLEANS

PORTLAND TAKE: A. Davis , J. Holiday, S. Hill, D. Miller

NEW ORLEANS TAKE: CJ McCollum, E. Turner, Nurkic,M. Harkless, 2019 2021 2023 first round picks.

01 Feb 2019 17:46:20
Blazers


POR- Kevin Love, David Nwaba, Channing Frye
CLE- Evan Turner, Zach Collins, Anfernee Simmons, 2019 1st


Portland is a very good team who is one piece away. With Love returning this week, i could see Portland making a run at him. Collins and Simmons have upside, but Love can be the stretch 4 that Portland needs.


PG- Damien Lillard
SG- CJ McCollum
SF- Mo Harkless
PF- Kevin Love
C- Jusuf Nurkic

01 Feb 2019 17:55:52
Take Simmons out and switch Channing with Hood and I think it’s a great deal for both.

01 Feb 2019 18:02:14
No way I’d give up Portland’s 3 best young assets for Love.

01 Feb 2019 18:52:34
Portland has developing youth for once. Love is not needed. Collins is already a better player-fit for the guards' bad defense in Portland. A SF, not barnyard auction prices for Simons and Collins would tickle POR's fancy.

01 Feb 2019 12:58:23
Portland: B simmons+ W Chandler+ T Young+ T Evans

NO: Embiid+ Fultz+ e Turner

Pacers: J holiday

Philly: A Davis+ D Lillard+ 1rnd pick Indy


Portland go's under the cap and get a young superstar

NO can rebuilt arround Ebbiid and Fultz get a fresh start.

The Pacers get a borderline all star for a cheap price

Philly screws the process and starts a big three with Davis-Lillard and Butler, while getting an extra pick, so they can develop 2 young players for their rotation.

01 Feb 2019 15:22:17
Pels get hosed, Pacers get a great PG for peanuts. Pels shed no contracts either. Umm nope.

01 Feb 2019 15:45:54
Dont worry can't happen anyways. Lillard and Davis are both on their designated player contracts and a team cannot trade for 2 of them.

01 Feb 2019 17:09:03
Yep, Lillard and Davis can't be traded to the same team.

01 Feb 2019 22:55:03
Philly would giggle at this one.

31 Jan 2019 18:35:06
The 76ers get McCollum, Mirotic and Clark

The Blazers get Moore, Holiday, Frazier and Randle

The Pelicans get Turner, Simmons, Collins, Chandler(buyout), Fultz, Z Smith, Bolden, Korkmaz, the Miami 21 1st, Portland 19 and 21 1st, and Philly's best 19 2nd

31 Jan 2019 18:47:03
POR giving too much.

31 Jan 2019 18:58:35
I was trying to factor in getting off Turner’s contract. I feel like it would take a lot to get off of.

31 Jan 2019 19:31:25
Turner’s deal is expiring next season, and giving up the best player in this deal, along with two firsts/ Collins is way too much to move it.

31 Jan 2019 20:17:46
Yeah, at this point it seems like trying to unload Turner for a first and a young player is a horrible decision. In 6 months, he'll be a nice role player on a big expiring contract. Might as well wait it out.

31 Jan 2019 20:31:27
Love it for Pels but Portland wouldn't go for it.

31 Jan 2019 12:51:39
NY: D Lillard+ A Davis

Portland: Kanter+ Knox+Mudiay+ 1rnd pick NY 2019

NO: Porzingis+ Ntilikina+ T Hardaway+ 1rnd pick NY 2021 and 23

31 Jan 2019 14:26:13
Not sure Portland is ready to rebuild and give up Dame for that. But it's a decent offer.

31 Jan 2019 14:58:14
It's a crappy offer to pels.

31 Jan 2019 15:16:39
If that’s a trade deadline trade, Portland gets a hooooorible return. It’s not like the Knicks pick would be number 1 if they have two superstars. They’d probably finish 5-8. Knox and pick 7 isn’t going to get Lillard.

Maybe if Portland misses the playoffs and the Knicks get the #1 pick.

30 Jan 2019 16:45:51
Might as well dream

Por-NO

POR gets
-AD

NO gets
-CJ
-Zach Collins
-2019 1st
-2021 1st
-2022 1st swap

Probably not the best offer out there, but it keeps the pelicans completive and in New Orleans and give Portland a chance in the west.

30 Jan 2019 17:25:37
I think NO would at least want to take the rest of the Blazers youth (Simons) . I also think Portland would be stupid to not add him in.

This is more than Paul George was traded for, I don't think it's a crazy dream.

30 Jan 2019 17:44:09
Add 2 more picks, Swanigan, Simmons, Aminu, and take back Hill. That’s a competitive offer. If you don’t have some kind of elite asset or multiple high end assets to give back, you’d have to absolutely sell out to get Davis. We haven’t seen a guy with this kind of value hit the open market in the modern era. The closest we’ve seen is probably Melo and Melo was never on Davis’s level. You’re talking about a 25 year old walking 25+ on great efficiency and 10+ that can pass, shoot, is a dpoy candidate, and has improved every year.

31 Jan 2019 04:09:18
I agree with both those comments. As a blazer fan I would love for them to go all in to really content or blow up.

29 Jan 2019 21:42:28
This could work for all teams if pelicans think it’s enoigh. And it does work money wise.

Blazers - Pelicans - T’Wolves

Pelicans-
Give: AD, Jrue, K Williams
Get: Wiggins, Nurkic, Bates-Diop, simons, swanigan, 2 top five protected 1st rounders from Portland, and a second from Portland, and a lotto protected first from Minny

Portland-
Give: CJ, Nurk, Stauskas, simons, swanigan, 2 firsts, a second
Get: AD, Jrue, K Williams

Timberwolves-
Give: wiggins, bates-diop, lotto protected first
Get: CJ, Stauskas

Pels- I know that the Wiggins contract sucks. But he still has potential that you could develop if he was a number one guy while you tank. And you get a bunch of young assets and picks.

Por- tries to win now. Obviously no garuntee he would stay. But you get two years of prime Dame, AD, and Jrue who would fit better than CJ did. And two roster spots to sign a vet to fill out the roster.

Minny- gets off of Wiggins contract, and get a great perimeter scorer in CJ. And a good shooter in Stauskas.

29 Jan 2019 22:27:41
I definitely think Portland should try for this. Make a home run type of move. They have assets that could make NO think at least. Maybe it ends up being Moore instead of Jrue (as NO could move Holiday for his own nice return), but it's a similar quality package to the Lakers best possible offer, if not a bit better.

30 Jan 2019 02:23:26
So not only does New Orleans trade away its best two players, it gets stuck with Wiggins and paying his awful contracts. That's like finding out that you have testicular cancer after your girlfriend kicks you in the nuts right after dumping you for a 21 year old male stripper.

28 Jan 2019 19:00:40
Just wondering what Boston thinks about Hayward, and how bad do you want to get rid of him and his contract.

Por: Hayward
Bos: turner, Harkless, and a 2nd

That’s 27 mill off the book next year for Boston to go sign a new superstar that fits their new timeline with brown and Tatum. Portland takes a swing at a 3 who could still be a star if he had more of a role.

28 Jan 2019 19:31:57
This is a believable move if they think they're going to have to free up some money. They already know that they can work with Turner. His best play was with the Celtics. I don't want to give up on Hayward though. I think he's going to come back eventually, it just takes time. The speed with which PG13 came back to full strength gave people unrealistic expectations. He also isn't a player who's been completely reliant on physical ability. He's a smart player who's biggest attribute is his decision making. As his body comes back (and his aggressiveness with it), even if he doesn't come back to 100% he will be a very good player.

The issue I have with the trade, is that I don't think you get anyone who's as good as he should be again in Free Agency. I doubt Durant goes to Boston, as he's already dealt with the backlash of joining a really good team. Next time he will either form a new group like LeBron/ Wade/ Bosh did in Miami, or join a team with young talent he can try to build with like LeBron.

LeBron isn't going anywhere, and Leonard is going to the West Coast or staying in Toronto. Porzingis is restricted, and NY should probably match. He's also coming off injuries of his own. The way they're going to get better is either trading for Davis (or another young star) or Hayward gets healthy. That's pretty much it.

28 Jan 2019 19:44:39
I don't think the want to trade Hayward. Not that they won't trade him. I just believe that they are smart enough to realize that it's going to take a while to come back from that injury. So, they are not taking pennies on the dollar for him. They would o let trade him if it makes sense to do so.

28 Jan 2019 20:01:14
Why would Portland do this? Hayward still has 60 plus million owed to him over the next 2 years.

28 Jan 2019 20:29:47
Portland does this because Hayward is currently better than Turner and Harkless. If he comes back into form, he's a great asset. They take a gamble on potentially getting an elite wing. Worst case scenario, they turn two bad contracts into one that fits the team better.

28 Jan 2019 18:58:06
This only happens if Anthony Davis will sign his extension for Portland, so I’m well aware this is a long shot.

Por: Davis, Moore, K Williams

NO: McCollum, Collins, nurkic, 2 top 5 protected 1st round picks

I think this is going to be around as good as offers will be from other places. Portland might also throw in simons as an extra piece.

28 Jan 2019 19:34:12
I don't know if Davis would want to stay with the leftovers there. Adding him to the current lineup, I think he would be a really good fit. But with most of the talent going back to NO, he's not left in a much better situation with Lillard than he is already in with Holiday.

28 Jan 2019 20:37:46
I definitely think Davis would still not commit to staying, but I think Portland should push hard to try to get him. Extension or no. It's the kind of high risk move that brings a team out of mediocrity.

I also think that a starting lineup of Lillard, Davis, Aminu, Moore, and (Layman, Turner, Harkless) would be much better than what NO has now.

28 Jan 2019 21:07:05
Lillard on the Derrick Rose rule list?
