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.

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

23 Jan 2018 14:48:56
raptors and spurs

raptors get Kawhi Leonard

spurs get OG, Powell and JV. frist round pick. a d any other pick they need to make this work but not giving up DD Lowry and Poeltl and wright.

this is a pipe dream. but still would be amazing.

23 Jan 2018 15:04:53
You could throw Derozan Wright, Poeltl and the a pick/ pick swap every year for the next ten years and I'm not sure it lands you Kawhi. When healthy, there is a strong case to be made that he is the third best player in basketball behind Lebron and Durant.

23 Jan 2018 15:18:17
I agree but when healthy he's always hurt and this year isn't helping his case. spurs are wining without him so do they really need him probably not they can get. really good young player or frist round picks for him and still be a playoff team.

cavs can trade for him if they really wanted too but the price would be extremely high. something like IT, first round pick nets, shumpert and Thompson maybe another first rounder 2021 and maybe more like Smith or Crowder as well. for Kawhi and Gasol.

23 Jan 2018 15:49:54
Are we talking about the same K Leonard?
The one from the Spurs?
Are do you mean Meyers Leonard from Portland :-) :-)

23 Jan 2018 16:03:54
That's not enough for Kawhi. He's a high prospect lottery guy, and a star. That package would have to be on the table to trade him right now. CLE has no chance or beneficial package beyond Lebron, maybe Love for either Gasol, or Kawhi. These guys aren't available anyway. After next season, or the next after that is a different story.

21 Jan 2018 21:47:18
Cle: D Cousins+ Rondo

NO: Valanciunas+ N Powell+ Shumpert+ 1rnd pick Nets+ 2rnd pick tor

Tor: T Thompson+ Osman

21 Jan 2018 23:50:51
Valanciunas and Powell are better than TT and Osman so why would Toronto do this.

22 Jan 2018 15:25:24
Horrible for Raptors, Bad for Pels.

23 Jan 2018 15:08:53
JV is my h better then Thompson and Powell has way more potential just need a to play more.

21 Jan 2018 14:32:53
NY: N Powell+ 2rnd pick Tor

Tor: Hernangomez

21 Jan 2018 15:03:52
Why would the knicks do this? Powell is guaranteed @42 million over the next four years. And he's just an average rotation guy. I don't think knicks would want to lock that cap flexibility up on Powell with so much already owed to Noah. Knicks pass.

21 Jan 2018 17:20:08
I like Powell
The knicks can't attract a big free agent.

Powell can score threes and is a good defender.

And the knicks have to many biggs

PF: Porzingis
SG: Powell
PG; Ntilikina.

21 Jan 2018 18:39:41
Knicks will be able to attract FA's that are better than Powell, and likely pay no more for those players than what Norman makes.

As for shooting the 3, he's at 28% this year and 32% for his career. Don't think that qualifies him as a "3 and D" guy.

21 Jan 2018 20:15:09
Powell is junk, Knicks would keep Willie if Noah wasn't a problem.

23 Jan 2018 15:11:40
raptors have enough bigs and Powell has way more potential then people think he need a team to aloud him to play through mistakes raptors need a consistent player off the bench.
so a trade for Lee would make more sense

Powell for Lee.

19 Jan 2018 04:00:14

TOR get Nikola Mirotic & 2nd from CLE

Pg Lowry/Vanvleet/Wright
Sg Derozan/Powell
Sf Anuonoby/Miles
Pf Mirotic/Siakam
Ce Ibaka/Noguierra

CHI get Jonas Valanciunas, Channing Frye (exp), Iman Shumpert, CLE 1st round pick & TOR 1st round pick

Pg Dunn/Grant
Sg LaVine/Nwaba
Sf Valentine/Shumpert/Zipser
Pf Markannen/Portis/Frye
Ce Valanciunas/Felicio

CLE get Robin Lopez & Justin Holiday

Pg Thomas/Rose/Calderon
Sg Holiday/Wade/Smith
Sf James/Crowder/Korver
Pf Love/Green
Ce Lopez/Thompson/Zizic

22 Jan 2018 14:36:25
this trade actually would be best for all teams but I don't think the raptors need to give up a first rounder maybe a second.

16 Jan 2018 20:14:55
Cavs are done Raptors need to push for it this year. make a trade for another wing scorer and maybe another forward. here's two trade that can help.

raptors and Denver

raptors get Chandler and Faried.

unfortunately this means deven has to take JVs. which they don't need but would still be helpful in the off-season. and Powell.

deven get JV and Powell

second trade that i think is best.

raptors get Mathews and Noel.

Mavs get JV and powell. and Cabo.

raptors need another wing scorer and another defensive center or a rebounding PF

17 Jan 2018 05:06:56
Why do you think Bruno has any trade value at all? He is in year 4 of a 3 year plan, and he's averaging exactly 0 points a game in the L this year.

JV is going to be hard to move, and Powell has struggled since signing his deal. Sivretsolide, obviously you're a Raptors fan, but not every other GM in the NBA is, so start getting more reasonable with your deals.

17 Jan 2018 14:11:54
Triangle, I think Toronto fans assume they'll get a ton for JV for some reason. I've seen some fansided articles about trading JV to the Cavs for Thompson and the Nets pick and Raptors fans were eating it up in the comments section. Outside of JV being on a little better contract, I see those two the same way, lower end starting centers that excel in some areas, but have huge holes in their game. (Tristan, offense outside of put backs and lobs and he struggles to defend big centers and JV can't stay on the court versus small ball lineups) .

17 Jan 2018 17:22:24
JV is averaging a double double and he may not be the best perimeter defender he can hold his own down low. but you don't get a center like him for his defence it's offence. also his value is a lot higher then u think. it's a lot better then a Lopez or mozgov and Bruno is just a throw in. he's a failed attempt for a wing 3and D. raptors may not even trade JV because he's more valuable to them then other teams. but they need to trade one of there center and poeltl isn't the one they should trade.

15 Jan 2018 18:16:55
Atlanta: Powell+ Valanciunas

Tor: Bazemore+ 2rnd pick Atalanta

15 Jan 2018 22:57:02
Pretty solid. trade. I like it for both.

13 Jan 2018 17:41:56

•Raptors get Dewayne Dedmon and Marco Bellinelli
PG: Lowry, Wright, VanVleet
SG: DeRozan, Bellinelli
SF: Anunoby, Miles, Caboclo
PF: Ibaka, Siakam
C: Dedmon, Poeltl, Nogueira

•Hawks get Jonas Valunciunas and Norman Powell.

13 Jan 2018 21:16:00
dont think powell has enough upside for atl to take on jv’s contract, its not the worst but i don’t think this is the right move for them.

13 Jan 2018 23:34:51
Powell to Atlanta is a great trade idea. I could see both teams doing this.

14 Jan 2018 14:19:38
I think Raps still value Powell enough to ask for another asset in this deal. Second round pick would be reasonable.

15 Jan 2018 03:05:04
really worst trade since cater wow.

11 Jan 2018 19:52:39
1) Miwaukee-Cle-Miami
Milwaukee: H whiteside

Cle: Dellavedova+ T Maker

Miami: Shumpert+Teletovic 1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick bucks 2020


tor: J J Parker+ 2rnd pick

Mil:: Poetl+ Powell

C:H Whiteside/Poetl
PF: Giannis/Henson
SG: Powell/Vaugn

11 Jan 2018 20:46:59
The Bucks say No! T Maker, Dellavedova, Teletovic, Parker, and their 1st rd, 2020 pick and 2nd rd pick for Whiteside, Poetl, and Powell?

11 Jan 2018 21:17:05
So Milwaukee gives up Dellavedova, Maker, Teletovic and their 2020 1st rd pick for Whiteside? The same whiteside that gets pulled in the 4th quarter?

Then the Bucks should give up J Parker PLUS a 2nd rd pick for Backup Center Poetl (Who they passed on drafting the 1st time) And 3rd string SG Powell who they traded away, and doesn't get to play?

How About Lowery, DeRozen, and Ibaka, for Seldom used R. Vaughn?

11 Jan 2018 21:22:36
Why do the Raptors make this deal? There is no contender who is going to touch Parker.

11 Jan 2018 22:57:23
wait, cleveland gives up the nets pick for dell and thon?

11 Jan 2018 23:27:54
The Nets pick is falling out the top 5, maybe out the top 7, so it's gonne be a late lottery pick. Cleveland gets a good defender and a young prospect in return, so they should do this.

Powell is a good player, but Toronto doesn't need him and can 't pay him, so why not gambling on Parker.

And the Bucks don't need Parker, Giannis is playing PF. The bucks needs a center and a 3- pointshooter that can play defense. so powell is a great fit for them.

12 Jan 2018 03:24:11
Cavs and Miami turn down the 1st trade. Miami has
Been playing well and they have no reason to trade for Whiteside. The Cavs don't need Delly and I think they would rather take their chances in the lottery/ draft rather than bring in Maker. He still has a ton of upside, but he looks like he's taken a half step back this year. He isn't going to help the Cavs get past the Warriors and they would have him on a rookie deal 2 fewer years.

Milwaukee probably turns down the 2nd one. Unless they can swing a deal that brings in a high level for Parker and change, what's the point in moving him?

11 Jan 2018 14:43:47
raptors hawks

raptors get Bazmore and Illyasova

hawks get JV, Powell and a first round pick

hawks get a good young sg who needs time on the floor and A big guy down low.

11 Jan 2018 15:35:50
i like this for both teams, but maybe the hawks should ad a second round pick.

08 Jan 2018 01:38:11
Toronto - chandler, farid
Denver - J.V, norm Powell, 2018 2nd round pick

08 Jan 2018 03:53:06
Nuggs already have Jokic and Plumlee, so I don’t seee where Val fits, and Have Harris and Barton so Powell the same. And Chandler is the only SF on their team.
