Nets/Nuggets Trade:

Nets Receive: 13th pick (Via Denver)

The Nets finally get to pick in the lottery where they might have a chance at Trae Young, Miles Bridges or Kevin Knox. All three of those players should fall into that range and they can provide playmaking which is what the Nets could you. Picture a lineup of Trae Young, D'angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe, Rondae Hollis Jefferson, and Jarrett Allen. There are other alternatives with this pick as well. If they fall in love with a guy like Wendell Carter Jr. or Collin Sexton, who are projected to go earlier than the 13th pick they could always package the 13th pick and somebody like Jahlil Okafor to move up a spot or two.

*(Scenario involves the Nets drafting Miles Bridges with the 13th pick)*
Depth Chart:
1-D'angelo Russell/Jermey Lin/
2-Allen Crabbe/Caris Levert/Nik Stauskas
3-Miles Bridges/Joe Harris/James Webb III or another draft pick
4-Demmare Caroll/Rondae Hollis-Jefferson/Dante Cunningham
5-Jarrett Allen/Quincy Acy/Jahlil Okafor

Nuggets Receive: Spencer Dinwiddie, 29th pick (Via Toronto)

The Nuggets finally get a playmaking point guard who is having a career year. He's averaging 13 points, 6.5 assists, and 3 boards per game. He's a guy that doesn't need the ball and he can play solid perimeter defense since he stands at 6'6, tall for a point guard. Dinwiddie will be able to dish the ball down low to Jokic and Millsap or run the pick and role/pick and pop. This provides the Nuggets with a versatile depth chart where they could run a lot of different lineups. Dinwiddie and Murray in the backcourt makes for a great perimeter duo. Garry Harris, Will Barton and Wilson Chandler can all compete for the starting role but all have virtually similar playing style, 3 and D. All in all, this trade would put the Nuggets back into real playoff contention and could get them a potential 6-7 seed out West.

Depth Chart:
1-Spencer Dinwiddie/Jamal Murray/Devin Harris
2-Garry Harris/Will Barton/Malik Beasley
3-Wilson Chandler/Richard Jefferson/Juan Hernangomez
4-Paul Millsap/Trey Lyles/Darell Arthur
5-Nikola Jokic/Mason Plumlee/Kenneth Faried

06 Apr 2018 20:18:27
I think that the 13th pick is too much value for Spencer Dinwiddie. The Nuggets could keep the pick and get a guy like Gilgeous-Alexander, or they could maybe trade up a little to get Sexton. Dinwiddie is a solid player on a decent contract, but I think the Nuggets would rather have a person five years younger with even more contract control.

06 Apr 2018 21:26:59
Personally, I think Murray would start over Dinwiddie, but I think it's a good deal for both. I'm imagining tombrady hasn't seen a lot of Spencer, he's a nice player who I think still has more upside. His 4 to 1 Assist to Turnover ratio suggests he's a guy that could take command of a very deep second unit.

07 Apr 2018 00:59:34
I like Dinwiddie as a replacement for Mudiay/ Harris. A lottery pick? Not 13. Maybe 18+.

07 Apr 2018 13:57:13
Jorga, they do get a pick back to offset the overpay on the pick.

07 Apr 2018 17:31:38
I saw that, 29th. A 2nd basically. I don't see a whole lot of potential past 22 in this draft. Lots of projects.

06 Apr 2018 15:44:27
here's what the raptors need to do in the off season

raptors trade JV and Norman Powell

to the Mavs for sec9nd round pick and contract match ups.

then. raptors move ibaka to center and draft a shooting guard with range and size. then depending on who they got in the trade keep or waive then sign vets to round out the roster. and the biggest question is Freddy if it's cheap keep him or let him go bring in brown as the 3rd guard. and use the 905 to develop others. or sign vets to a min.

starting line up



Wright or Freddy
draft pick or vet
draft pick or vet

06 Apr 2018 21:31:12
Why would the Mavs want JV?

09 Apr 2018 15:15:32
why wouldn't they he's improved each year. the only reason why I say let him go is that ibaka won't bring back anything in a trade IN has more upside and cheaper but ibaka isn't cheap and his play is slightly better right now.

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.

Spencer Dinwiddie and Toronto pick(27)

SUNS-- trade
Alec peters and the bucks pick (17) or just the pick.

Brooklyn move into the teens and clear some of the logjam at PG

Suns get a good PG backup at a min. Salary and gives them the possibility. To trade knight if need be to give them some flexability plus a 1st rounder.

Remember some teams offered a 1st round pick b4 the trade deadline.

27 Mar 2018 16:48:03
I don't think moving Dinwiddie and a 1st is worth moving up 10 picks.

28 Mar 2018 00:32:22
I think dinwiddie is better than Sexton and young. So I believe he is worth 17th without the pick.

26 Mar 2018 21:43:22
raptors and Celtics

rap get Brown and contact filler

Celtics get Ibaka and first round future pick.

raptors get a starting 3 and Celtics get a stretch 4/5 next to horford. Celtics can afford to trade broke with Hayward back next season and Tatum playing good ball. they can fill the rest of there roster with free agents and vets.

Celtics win soon maybe next season or two. raptors have younger wing. and move OG to the bench and start Siakam with brown d's Lowry and JV.

raptors bring back Bebe and look to trade Powell for picks and vets

26 Mar 2018 21:58:38
Not even close. No way Celtics give up a potential star for a guy who's teeing it up on the 12th hole. Only way Brown leaves Boston in a deal is in the highly unlikely event that AD becomes available.

26 Mar 2018 22:14:06
Ibaka isn't worth Brown even with the 1st involved. Ibaka's numbers have been on a steady decline for the best 3 years and he seems to have lost a lot of athleticism. He's still a solid player, but he isn't going to fetch you a package close what a borderline allstar would get you.

26 Mar 2018 23:28:58
It's not a bad trade, but the Celtics need something extra to do this.
Ibaka isn't the borderline all star, he was a few years ago.
And Brown shows potential to become an all star.

26 Mar 2018 23:35:28
Sivretsolide at it again.

Never mind that Boston doesn't really have "contract fillers", there is no way the C's give up Brown for a declining, overpaid Ibaka.

27 Mar 2018 14:12:27
Gasupo how is this not a bad trade? It's a young star that's already just as good as Ibaka with two more cheap years on the contract versus an old, outdated, overpaid Ibaka and a very late first.

27 Mar 2018 14:29:45
I agree with Gas. If this was Ibaka 4 years ago, this would be a solid trade strictly for fit. I think I actually like Brown more than Ibaka then, but they could definitely use that style of player.

28 Mar 2018 13:47:57
With Heyward in the line-up, which no one has seen, BOS could have the deepest bench in the NBA. I wouldn't do any deals with Brown until that experiment has an opportunity to produce a sample of its ability.

11 Mar 2018 23:11:13
Why would Ibaka leave.

12 Mar 2018 01:08:47
Why would the Raptors do that?

12 Mar 2018 05:12:15
What happens when POR gets swept in the 1st or second round? If Butler is healthy POR doesn't stand a chance against a MIN match-up. LAC, UTAH, DEN, SA could all easily handle POR. Trade all those future picks away?

12 Mar 2018 13:44:06
The ibaka trade and Ariza signings are impossible. Portland is way too far over the cap for that. They can’t make a trade where they bring in double what they send out. And they won’t have any cap space to sign anyone for anything but the MLE.

12 Mar 2018 16:13:08
Also, it’s crazy that Portland (in this scenario) improves their roster, yet they don’t stand a chance against 5 teams that they are currently ahead of in the standings? Logical Jorga.

12 Mar 2018 19:31:54
What was I thinking? Thanks for putting me straight. I guess I'll complete re-think everything. Real eye-opener. Where should I mail the penny to?

12 Mar 2018 20:04:28
You’re welcome!

13 Mar 2018 00:17:18
USA, the Raptors make the move to create payroll flexibility for upcoming free agency. They clear roughly $12M in cap space. The draft picks help Toronto make the move.

09 Mar 2018 15:02:40

25 Feb 2018 22:25:06
Brooklyn gets: Otto Porter Jr

Wizards get: D. Carroll; Tor 1st 2018

Washington gets a solid 3D and gets salary relief plus a 1 pick

Brooklyn gets the player that they wanted to add to the lineup

Russel/ Spencer
Crabbe/ Harris
Porter/ Levert
Hollis-Jefferson/ Cuningham
Allen/ Okafor.

26 Feb 2018 01:51:14
I can't see Washington having any interest unless they're desperate to save money.

26 Feb 2018 01:58:35
Dinwiddie off the bench that's there best player.

23 Feb 2018 04:59:35

PF : Johnson/Aminu/Haslem
SF : Leonard/McGruder/Jones Jr

23 Feb 2018 05:53:01
Why is POR giving up any picks? Come on man this is fantasy at best. You can post different versions over, and over, and Miami will pull off anything close to this.

23 Feb 2018 15:10:17
Wait. San Antonio and Portland are giving up picks, and Miami gets the two stars involved in the trade? That's a bit nuts. The second trade makes some sense, but I still think Whiteside is insanely overrated, so I don't think I would do this myself as the Raptors, but I could see it being worthwhile for others.

22 Feb 2018 05:53:57

22 Feb 2018 08:06:59
Tyler Johnson poison pill contract comes on next season, you probably need a 1st or young assett to move him.

And it is a terrible return for Spurs.

22 Feb 2018 19:57:11
Miami gets a Hell of a squad, and the Spurs get middle of the road players nearing the end of the they-still-might-improve-realm. Not very balanced trade. NBA is quid pro quo. UTA got Crowder who's under contract long-term, dumped Johnson without eating 5 mil by waiving, and gave Hood away basically because he wasn't going to sign obviously. It's not a great trade, but UTA achieved roster/ salary stability, SAC saved money long term on Hill, CLE may make a title run this season. Spurs are just eating sh*t here for Kawhi.

16 Feb 2018 17:07:54

cavs trade tristan thompson & second round pick to raptors for nothing just cash money

resign lebron james 3 yrs150M

draft deandre ayton

resign rodney hood 3 yrs 65M

resign jeff green 3 yrs 20M

16 Feb 2018 18:03:10
20 mil + 2nd would probably cover it for Thompson. Doubt CAVS pony up 20 mil to dump him though. They'll keep him, pray he works on his game instead of a Kardashian in the off-season.

16 Feb 2018 21:49:23
I'm not sure how they're going to get Ayton. That Brooklyn pick is likely in the 6-10 range, and there's NO way he falls to that range.

16 Feb 2018 21:59:53
Brooklyn is a game up on the worst record in the NBA, and are very close to #9 as well (2 games I believe) . It’s hard to bank on any specific draft position for that pick right now.

16 Feb 2018 22:11:33
which players cavs draft? they don't need trae young the cavs need a centers only a rim protectors.

16 Feb 2018 22:14:42
Brook is at number 7 but all 6 teams under them have 18 wins and brook has 19 so number 1 is still possible it's the luckiest ass cavs we talking about.

16 Feb 2018 23:00:06
LeBron just stated the obvious about Young: Go get paid, and get out of the NC-double slave as soon as you can. That being said if the BRK pick lands 1-10, anyone but Young should be drafted. Guy is small, with really short arms. He can play, and will, but I don't think he physically has all-star potential in the NBA. Lou Williams-like at best.

16 Feb 2018 23:33:46
what about jaren jackson or mo bama.

17 Feb 2018 00:23:24
Jackson looks really good. Ayton, Bagley too. Mo Bama has some game. Azabuke isn't bad either. Good size for an NBA'er. 3 starters for Duke look NBA capable. Trent Jr. Is a good late lottery-up guy.

17 Feb 2018 14:16:19
Raptors don't have $20M to spend, they're over the cap. If they did, they would be much more likely to be in on a better player than Thompson.

17 Feb 2018 14:41:19
I’m still confused at Lebron getting 3 years at 50 million a year and Hood at 22 million. Oh. And green gets 7.

This whole post is foolish. Trades and signings are absurd. And the nets pick isn’t getting you the projected 1/ 2 pick. Would be nice if you did a tad bit of research or at least thinking prior to posting.

17 Feb 2018 15:36:47
You make good points Cheeseburger except for Hood. He is averaging 17 points a game, and is better defensively than Mcollum. McCollum makes 26+, so I don't think 22 is absurd, but 18-22 mil is an underpay by comparison. POR could be foolish also I guess. Hood would be getting market pay though.

19 Feb 2018 17:26:19
Wow, You just added cheese for no reason. lol.

19 Feb 2018 19:22:26
There were some good points made, I felt the free add-on was earned.

11 Feb 2018 19:08:14
Where I'd like to see some of the top possible free agents sign

•Tony Allen: Cavs or Thunder
•Vince Carter: Celtics or Raptors
•Derrick Rose: Wizards, Nuggets, or Warriors
•Nerlens Noel: Cavs or Spurs
•Josh McRoberts: Thunder or Spurs
•Ersan Ilyasova: Raptors or Thunder
•Shabazz Muhammad: Pelicans or Wizards
•G. Papagiannis: Thunder or Spurs.

12 Feb 2018 02:54:31
I’d like to see carter or Ilyasova go to the pistons. They need a shooter like Ersan.

13 Feb 2018 17:24:25
that's funny I was going to say the raptors for both raptora waive a player to bring in both.

11 Feb 2018 00:09:04
Lakers buyout deng and save money for off season

then raptors use what they have to s8gn him as a stretch forward. who's going to play small minutes but can be a big help in playoffs .

11 Feb 2018 01:55:38
The Lakers started the season trying to make the playoffs and have no reason to intentionally tank. If Deng had anything left, he would have played.

11 Feb 2018 00:07:39
raptors buyouts

raptors look to get a buyout

if Vince becomes a free agent sign Vince

but a better option would be illya for dunley or fry raptors need a stretch four to help in playoffs.

04 Feb 2018 21:40:48
Charlotte: Valanciunas+Powell+H barnes

Tor: D howard+ 2rnd pick Cha

Dal: M Williams+ Caboclo+Monk

PF:Kaminski/ O bryant
SF: H Barnes/MKG
PG: Walker/MCW

04 Feb 2018 23:09:45
No from Dallas, I'd rather have Harrison Barnes.

04 Feb 2018 16:55:04
Raptors trade - Valanciunas

Suns trade - Dudley and Warren
- Draft Trae Young



04 Feb 2018 17:52:30
Why would phoenix trade Warren? He's becoming a legit second option.

04 Feb 2018 18:44:09
cant wait to see young-booker backcourt. going to be like dame-cj 2.0, huge offense, no defense.

04 Feb 2018 19:22:56
Better be hoping for Doncic. Young has short arms, and other limitations. Looks good in NCAA. You'll see come march madness. Someone with NBA build will contain him.

03 Feb 2018 17:18:33
Pelicans/ Raptors/ Nets

Pelicans get Caboclo and Nogueira

Raptors get Stauskas and Pels 2020 2nd rounder

Nets get Ajinca and 2018 Pels 2nd rounder.

03 Feb 2018 20:27:04
I don't consider NOP in position to be throwing away 2nd rounders for projects. Another team may bite on Caboclo. Nogueira is ok.

29 Jan 2018 19:24:58

cavs trade isaiah thomas & tristan thompson

raptors trade jonas valanclunas & jakob poeltl & fred van vleet

what y'all think?

30 Jan 2018 19:49:49
why that a my question IT is good but Freddy is younger and will be a very good back up raptors back court is good when will get better. raptors get wing players and shooting. bigs.

raptors laugh at this trade.

27 Jan 2018 18:54:08
MEM: Marc Gasol, Tyreke Evans and 2019 2nd round pick.

TOR; Jonas Valanciunas, Lucas Nogueira, Norman Powell, Pascal Siakim, 2019 1st round pick, 2021 1st round pick, and 2020 2nd round pick.

The Raptors need somebody who can be that 3rd scorer for their team as well as a great scorer off that bench and Gasol (3rd scorer) and Evans (6th man) can be that for this team. This can put either Gasol or Ibaka at the starting C role and they're both terrific defenders, not as amazing as they once were but still great none the less.

Memphis needs to start their rebuild and both Gasol and Evans warrant first round picks, they take on Jonas' contract to make salaries work but they also get two young guys in Siakim and Powell who aren't getting as much play time in Toronto as they would in Memphis.

27 Jan 2018 20:01:20
I actually like this trade.

27 Jan 2018 22:04:06
Toronto is a great destination for Toronto, this could bring them to the finals.

And it's a good return for Memphis.

27 Jan 2018 22:13:55
I am guessing that isn't a typo. Gasupo! Ha!

28 Jan 2018 03:52:38
Memphis getting too much. Evans is expiring.

30 Jan 2018 19:52:57
good trade but I don't think they need to give that many draft picks maybe just a first and second.

25 Jan 2018 14:58:04
raptors and Denver

raps get faried and Barton

Denver get JV, powell and second round pic.

Denver doesn't need a center but they can use him in the off season for another trade or see what he gives them Powell would be the potential for them he can easily be something special but needs time on the floor

while the raptors improve on the boards and go more athletic and get a scoring wing off the bench.

or we do a 3 team trade with the Mavs.

rap get faried and Barton

Mavs get JV, and raptors first round pic

Denver get Mathews. Mavs second rounder
