Abdel Nader for Lucas Nogueira or Jakob Poeltl

Nader was D-League ROY last season and has some upside (so does Nogueira and to a lesser extent Poeltl), but the Cs need size and the Raptors have a surplus of bigs who all need time.

14 Sep 2017 12:04:33
If Cavs have Shumpert, Frye (exp) & their 2018 own 1st to trade, who would they use them for?

it should be a perimeter defender or a decent back up big

some list,

To Chicago for Robin Lopez?
To San Antonio for Danny Green? highly unlikely though
To Pacers for Thad Young?
To Knicks for Oquinn & Thomas or Lee?
To Mavericks for Wesley Matthews & 2nd?
To Raptors for Valanciunas?
To Bucks for Monroe?
To Hornets for MKG?
To Thunder for Roberson?

any idea guys?

14 Sep 2017 13:34:48
Cleveland's own No.1 will be late 20s at best, so it has little value (in fact, teams would prefer an early 2nd to a late first because first-rounders require guaranteed money) .
That leaves Frye, who is cooked, and Shumpert, who has little value and is at best a lower-rotation player.
Out of your offers I see maybe Valanciunas, but none of the others. But even at that, Valanciunas might tick off James by clogging the lane.

14 Sep 2017 15:50:29
I don't see Val, it would just leave the Raps too thin at the five. I agree Super with your valuation, so maybe Monroe at best, and probably not even him.

Raptors and Denver


Raptors get faried and Murray


Nuggets get JV, Powell and first round pick

Then Denver looks to turn JV into something more mid season or off season

Raptors get a Pf rebounding machine and a young scoring combo guard still think Powell will be much better but faried is what they need.

06 Sep 2017 03:38:14
JV and Faried are probably equal in value and nothing else Toronto gives up is really worth Murray.

06 Sep 2017 13:21:09
Not sure if you've heard of this guy Jokic in Denver, but apparently they would have no need for JV, and they're not giving up Murray for Powell and a late first. Denver is overstocked with wings, and Murray has the ability to slide over to the point.

03 Sep 2017 17:32:57
Cavs Toronto Det

Cavs receive
Drummond

Toronto receives
Thompson
Osman
2021 first round pick or 2 second round picks in 2019, 2020

Detroit receives
Valanciunas
Shumpert

03 Sep 2017 16:00:21
Mid-Season Trade
Nets get:
F Kevin Love

Pistons get:
C Tristan Thompson
F Trevor Booker (expiring)
G D'Angelo Russell
G Caris LaVert
18' Nets 1st Round Pick via Raptors

Cavaliers get:
C Andre Drummond
G Avery Bradley (expiring)
F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

Scenarios
Nets: Russell shows much of the same as in Year 2. Nets pair him with two of their young wings and the Raptors pick for Kevin Love, a borderline All-Star in the Eastern Conference.
Pistons: Drummond doesn't step up his defensive ability. They move on from his contract and get a cheaper replacement in Thompson, a younger guard than Jackson in Russell, and a potential long term option at the SG or SF position in LaVert. If they are not in the playoff picture and they realize Bradley won't resign, they'll be glad to take a pick for him.
Cavaliers:
They upgrade their center position with acquiring Drummond and get more equipped to defend the Warriors with Bradley and RHJ. They can start Thomas/Bradley/Crowder/LeBron/Drummond and if the Warriors go small, they can input RHJ or maybe even Dwyane Wade if he's bought out. I doubt the Cavaliers will move the Nets pick if they don't know LeBron's future.

03 Sep 2017 16:58:58
I'm not saying he's not more valuable, but I doubt the Cavs would move Love for Drummond straight up and I don't think anything they get back is worth giving up the Brooklyn pick for. It's a pretty terrible deal for the Cavs.

03 Sep 2017 17:28:43
Looking at it more, it's pretty terrible for Brooklyn too. Love is really good, but they still aren't a playoff team with him. Why give up some of their best young players for him? This really only makes sense for the Pistons who get an absurd return on Bradley and Drummond.

28 Aug 2017 16:58:58
The Spurs get Bledsoe and Valaciunas

The Suns get Parker, Powell, Murray, a Spurs first, and a Toronto first

The Raptors get Aldridge and a Spurs 2nd

28 Aug 2017 21:48:53
works for everyone but maybe suns should waive parker.

29 Aug 2017 14:59:05
I don't know that I give up Powell if I'm the Raps to get LMA. I have a feeling that this is a breakthrough year for him, and the Raps are not overly deep at the wing. I also don't know that LMA is a great fit in Toronto, he wants to be a bigger focus in an offense, and the Raps give a majority of their touches to the backcourt.

29 Aug 2017 15:38:50
No thanks from T. O.

30 Aug 2017 16:01:36
i like this for the suns and toronto
Not sure about the spurs. shouldn't they go after a free agent next year?

24 Aug 2017 15:44:10
Boston: Drummond+ Nogueira

Toronto: Horford

Detroit: Valanciunas+ CJ Miles+ 1rnd pick LA (or sac 2019)

Boston:
C: Drummond/Nogueira
PF: Morris/ Yabusele
SF: Hayward/Tatum
SG: Smart/ J Brown
PG: Irving/ Rozier


Tor:
C:Ibaka/Poetl
PF: Horford/Siakam
SF:Derozan/Caboclo
SG: Powell/McDaniels
PG: Lowry/D Wright

24 Aug 2017 16:58:43
Horford and the LA pick for Drummond and a body? I want whatever it is you're smoking.

24 Aug 2017 18:28:02
I don't this it's terrible Sox fan. Drummond is the exact kind of player that Boston needs and his age fits perfectly with Boston's time line. Horford is 31 and his stats have been slowly creeping down. I think maybe a Boston pick instead of the la pick and then the Raptors throw in a first to Detroit would make sense for everyone.

24 Aug 2017 19:54:51
Would much rather have Horford than Drummond. Horford was a stud in last year's playoffs.

23 Aug 2017 13:13:22
I think with the Celtics getting stronger and cavs getting ready for James to leave the raptors need to push this season and also plan the same as the cavs. Raptors need to start using there young talent and let them fly. At the same time get some help on the boards.

Raptors, Denver and spurs

Raptors get faried

Spurs get JV Denver draft pick.

Denver gets LA

Raptors have Ibaka faried out front that would be a good defence front court

23 Aug 2017 14:03:03
It's a small front court though. That said, neither the Cavs or C's boast a tonne of bigs, so the deal's not bad.

05 Sep 2017 20:21:33
Small ball is the way of the nba nowbifnyou have speed and guys that can get rebounds your golden raptors don't need offences they need rebounds and defensive players.

17 Aug 2017 15:19:38
What if??
Kyrie goes to Spurs in 3 team deal involving aldridge (send back to Portland)

Melo goes to Rockets with Paul and Harden

Davis goes to Celtics with Thomas

Westbrook, George and Love(via trade) to Lakers with Lonzo Ball and Ingram

LeBron, Wade and Rose teaming up with Whiteside, Dragic and Winslow in Miami

DAndre Jordan to Bucks with Giannis, Brogdon and Middleton

Cousins to Wizards, reuniting with Wall

Nba top East teams would be Heat, Celtics, Wizards, Bucks, Raptors and Sixers

Nba top West teams would be Warriors, Spurs, Rockets, Lakers, Wolves and Blazers

17 Aug 2017 15:51:54
Ok, how about proposing an actual trade.

17 Aug 2017 16:12:39
I see. And the other teams are just going to hand over their Superstars because we need 12 teams to have all the talent. try posting a trade idea instead of a "what if"

17 Aug 2017 16:34:23
The Spurs really don't have much of value to offer the Cavs and I don't see Portland being willing to give up much for Aldridge.

Melo to Houston still could happen, but at this point it seems like a long shot. Unless either Ny or Houston drastically change their stances it doesn't even seem close.

The Celtics would have to offer NO something ridiculous to even make it a conversation. From the Pelicans stand point, why trade Davis right now?

Outside of Ingram and Ball, what would the Lakers have that the Cavs would be interested in? They would have to let Randle walk to sign the first two and would almost certainly have to include Deng in any trade for Love. It's not happening.

Riley screwed over Wade 2 years ago. I don't see him or Lebron being willing to go back.

I' don't see Jordan being a player that Milwaukee really needs. They're already a long team that's solid on defense. They need more shooting.

The Wizards are capped out for the next few years and don't have many valuable assets out side of Wall and Beal, I'm not sure how they would end up with Cousins.

17 Aug 2017 07:43:45
Trades these teams need to make before the 2018 Playoffs!

Lakers : Jordan Clarkson + Luol Deng for Dwyane Wade

Celtics: Jayson Tatum for

Rockets: Trevor Ariza + Tarik Black + Eric Gordon for Carmelo Anthony

Cleveland: Iman Shumpert for Kyle Anderson

OKC: Enes Kanter + Andre Roberson for Dwayne Wade + Cristiano Felicia

Minnesota: Gorgui Deng + Tyus Jones for Greg Monroe + Tyus Jones

NYK: Carmelo Anthony + Joakim Noah for Malik Monk + Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Suns: Eric Bledsoe + Brandon Knight for Dante Exum + 2018 First Round Pick

PHI: Jahlil Okafor + Robert Covington for T.J. Warren + Brandon Knight or
Kent Bazemore

Kings: Kosta Koufous for Wesley Johnson

Bucks : Greg Monroe + Mirza Teletovic for Kent Bazemore + Miles Plumlee

Pelicans: Frank Jackson + 2018 First Round Pick for Tobias Harris

Nuggets: Emmanuel Mudiay + Will Barton + Kenneth Faried for Nicolas Batum

Spurs: Patty Mills + Kyle Anderson + 2018 First Round Pick for Eric Bledsoe

Wizards: Markieff Morris + Kelly Oubre for Keneth Faried

Raptors: Kyle Lowry + C.J. Miles +Serge Ibaka + 2018 1st Round Pick for Kyrie Irving + Iman Shumpert

This last one hurts the most.

17 Aug 2017 07:50:41
almost all are way off.

17 Aug 2017 10:13:08
like which ones.

17 Aug 2017 11:48:35
Can't say for sure, but I tend to doubt that Celtics would be willing to give Tatum away for nothing.

17 Aug 2017 12:00:47
Why would Minnesota want Monroe? And why trade for Tyus Jones when they have Tyus Jones?

17 Aug 2017 16:43:41
Why would the raptors trade there best Pg who's and Allstar and everyone else for kyrie. I laugh at how bad this trade request is maybe a Lowry Powell straight up with a draft pick For kyrie and shumpert.

17 Aug 2017 18:39:54
Knicks give melo and noah for monk and MKG? Yes please.

These are beyond foolish.

17 Aug 2017 22:25:59
Noah's contract is horrible and Monk dropped 50 in NCAA. You are getting another top 10 lottery pick and dumping Noah. For the rebuild.

17 Aug 2017 03:57:43
CLE Cavs X TOR Raptors X PHX Suns

CLE take D.Derozan , E.Bledsoe & T.Chandler

TOR take T.Thompson , T.Warren , I.Shumpert , D.Bender & PHX (unprotected)

PHX take K.Irving , J.Valanciunas & 2nd from CLE

CLE acquire an all-star to replace Irving & a quality PG and C who plays defense very well

G Bledsoe-Rose-Calderon
G Derozan-Smith
F James-Korver-Jefferson
F Love-Green-Frye
C Chandler-Tavares

I think TOR will be on a decline, getting assets can help them build a young core

G Lowry-Wright-VanVleet
G Shumpert-Powell-Caboclo
F Warren-Miles-Anouby
F Thompson-D.Bender-Siakam
C Ibaka-Noguierra-Poeltl

PHX get a superstar

G Irving-Ulis
G Booker-Knight
F Jackson-Dudley
F Chriss-Williams
C Valanciunas-Len

17 Aug 2017 07:01:54
Why would toronto do this are you smoking.

17 Aug 2017 16:16:25
NO way phoenix gives up Bledsoe, Warren, bender and a unprotected first which would most likely be too 3 in a loaded draft. Irving is maybe a top 10 player at best but does nothing but score. They could get a better player with the draft pick, and keep the other players.

23 Aug 2017 15:21:20
Nah, toronto should get more and i don't think the combo Ibaka, Thompson would be good enough.

I still hope Bender will become good, but he's to young for that Toronto team. this should only happen if Toronto go's for a total rebuilt and they also deal Lowry.

13 Aug 2017 07:11:15
Sixers-raptors-bulls trade

Bulls get jahlil okafor
Raptors gets cameron payne, nik stauskas and 2nd rd pick (phil)
Sixers gets og anunoby and fred vanvleet (waive)

13 Aug 2017 19:16:07
No from raptors.

11 Aug 2017 17:01:50
Lakers and raptors


Raptors get Deng and Randle



Lakers get JV first round pick and
Bebe

Then lakers go and trade JV and clarkson for more assets.

11 Aug 2017 21:32:08
Toronto hangs up laughing.

12 Aug 2017 02:42:58
No way, Raptors.

17 Aug 2017 16:48:30
Why no for raptors please explain. Rankles young and quick can play post and has about the same upside as JV. Deng can come in and play Sf/ Pf and lakers can go around and trade JV for some more assets so how is this a No for Raptors? Jv's value is declining each day.

11 Aug 2017 14:38:16
Raptors and Suns

Suns want to unload chandler and raptors want to unload JV


How about this

Raptors get Chandler and Bender

Suns get JV.

11 Aug 2017 16:09:15
The Suns don't seem very motivated to move Chandler, the Suns would end up spending more money a year with JV than Chandler and Bender, and I think they would prefer Bender's upside over JV's post offense without much else.

11 Aug 2017 16:11:47
Are you high? Chandlers #s are practically the same as jv, so the suns throw in last year's 4th pick? Congrats on being the bigges idiot today.

11 Aug 2017 17:05:06
JV Is much better offensively then chandler and he's younger with the suns he can be a vocal point of there offence plus bender hasn't shown much other then potential


Chandler old and won't have the same years as he did he's there for defence and leadership.

12 Aug 2017 02:03:15
Dude you have no idea what your talking about so just stop. Your trying to justify this trade, yet you post another trade with the Lakers where the Lakers get jv plus a first rounder while unloading dengs awful contract, and a expiring contract in randle.

13 Aug 2017 13:04:59
I like this trade for Toronto.
Chandler can be a great backup for Ibaka and I still believe Bender will become a star.

Phoenix loses this trade, If Bender becomes a star, but they get the best player in this trade, so i can see them doing this.

04 Aug 2017 14:51:47
Knick rockets Raptors

Raptors get Anderson and rockets draft pick

Knicks get JV, Ariza and two first round picks from the rockets.

Rocket get Melo

04 Aug 2017 15:24:16
That's a huge return for Anthony.

04 Aug 2017 16:00:08
It's a huge return for Anthony and not a ton for Toronto. I'd say both the picks should go to Toronto.

04 Aug 2017 16:25:04
I think, you should drop then 2nd first to NY. The Knicks can probably turn around and trade Ariza for some lesser prospects or a heavily protected pick. If Carmelo holds to only being willing to go to Houston, any return that gets a pick and no bad contracts from them would be something that the Knicks would have to think about accepting. Carmelo is basically not allowing any competition in a trade for him so any positive assets are better than having a pouting Melo on a bad team. If they had a chance to make the playoffs, I would say keep him and let him walk, but keeping him at this point is just going to be bad for an already fragile locker room.

I like it for Toronto. They end up with another asset in the pick and it gives them a versatile veteran pf who can give guys like Lowry and Derozan space. It improves their team in the short term and gives them a little more ammo to improve the roster down the line.

04 Aug 2017 16:26:12
Jv for Isiah thomas.

04 Aug 2017 17:00:55
I like this idea. Only change I would make is the Knicks get a first while the raptors get a 1st and a 2nd.

05 Aug 2017 18:25:19
I like this idea

Houston should only give one first round pick and that pick should go to Toronto.

Ariza+ JV is a great return for Melo.

06 Aug 2017 15:36:36
You can also trade Anderson to Toronto and Ariza to Toronto for JV and Powell. This will make the raptors that much better for play offs and hopefully knock out the cavs with Ariza on the wing. yoy lose Powell but I have a feeling will lose him anyways for. More money down the road. Why not trade him for a win now player.

03 Aug 2017 17:01:22
Raptors and spurs.

LA for JV and draft picks.

Have LA next to Ibaka and that's a good front court

03 Aug 2017 20:40:44
Its alright for Raptors who are struggling to move JV. I don't think LA is the type of player they are exactly looking for (he is an offensive big that doesn't play much defense like JV and a worse rebounder) but he is better than JV. Don't think Aldridge puts them over the top and he puts them in wrong direction as far as luxury which they are close to getting under so maybe it isn't worth it for them.

Not a fan of it for the Spurs. I don't like the direction their offseason has gone and don't think this would help things. Not sure how their cap situation looks with the money (I think overpay especially factoring length) they gave to Gasol and Mills but with Aldridge (player option), Parker and Green all becoming FA next summer I'd try and maintain as much of that space as possible so they could get a suitable sidekick to Kawhi. Therefore I wouldn't move Aldridge for a guy like JV with 2 year and a player option left and not that great of a contract. I'd much rather sending Aldridge to Jazz for Favors, Johnson and picks. Two expiring contracts and Favors is a very good player when healthy who is still relatively young.

29 Jul 2017 20:36:04
3 team trade bulls get Kyle Anderson Norman Powel both played with Zach Lavine at UCLA

Bulls trade to spurs Cam Payne
Bulls get Kyle Anderson from spurs
And Norman Powel from raptors we sign trade mirotic and jerian grant to raptors for delon Wright Norman Powel we give sixers 3m cash for Jahil Okafor
Then last trade robin Lopez to blazers for Myles Lenard and Moe Harkless.

29 Jul 2017 14:19:42
Raptors and cavs

Cavs wait till Dec to trade kyrie the raptors should look at trading for him.. They can offer

Straight up Lowry and kyrie and the raptors throw in a few draft picks


Or for salary matching raptors trade Powell, Lowry and draft picks for kyrie and shumpert.

Raptors get younger and finally get a closer they need badly. And a back up 3 and D forward.


Cavs stay a good team with Lowry in the mix his shooting and defence will help the cavs possibly take out the warrior. And adding Powell they get an unknown potential guard.

30 Jul 2017 02:09:08
I think its highly unlikely Cavs wait this thing out until December but Lowry wouldn't be a bad swap especially if they could add other pieces at the same time. Raptors as a good team but not really a championship contender would be wise to try and get younger (ideally without taking a major step back) .

03 Aug 2017 16:56:07
Raptors need that closer like kyrie if they can land him by just trading someone like Lowry and a draft pick or two. It would be great as much as I love Lowry he's no closer like kyrie and he's older now DD would miss him but trading Lowry might mean trade DeRozan Aswell. For some younger and better shooting.

27 Jul 2017 13:40:52
Sixers-raptors trade

Sixers get og anunoby
Raptors gets nik stauskas and justin jackson.

27 Jul 2017 14:49:48
That's rather laughable.

27 Jul 2017 15:34:42
Justin Jackson isn't on the Sixers

27 Jul 2017 21:17:32
Justin anderson my mistake. haha.

27 Jul 2017 06:28:42
Raptors-Bulls


Raptors get Robin Lopez and Nikola Mirotic (2yr 15m)
-Sign Gerald Green 1yr minimum
-Sign Festus Ezeli 1yr minimum
Lineup:
PG: Lowry, Wright, VanVleet
SG: DeRozan, Powell, Anuonoby
SF: Miles, Green, Caboclo
PF: Ibaka, Mirotic, Siakam
C: Lopez, Poeltl, Ezeli

Bulls get Jonas Valunciunas, Lucas Nogueira, and a future 2nd
Lineup:
PG: Dunn, Grant, Payne
SG: LaVine, Holiday, Nwaba
SF: Wade, Valentine, Blakenley
PF: Portis, Markannen, Zipser
C: Valunciunas, Felicio, Nogueira.

27 Jul 2017 08:49:46
Reasonable value but not sure this is the direction Raptors want to go in. They want to move JV to get a more athletic lineup by moving Ibaka to the 5 and bringing in a versatile forward. Lopez although a better defender than JV doesn't really provide this. Also, Raptors who are slightly above luxury cap probably don't want to make this move as they'll try to get under it before the trade deadline.

27 Jul 2017 09:11:59
Remember the game where Ibaka and Lopez threw punches at each other. That's interesting.

27 Jul 2017 14:50:30
Those weren't punches. They were feather slaps.
