I think what happen will be:

Leonard may stay in Toronto or go to the Clippers?

Probably New York will trade:

- NY: Davis
- NO: BARRETT, Smith, Know, Robinson

NY signs Irving and Durant.

If not Irving and Durant will go to Brooklyn and AD may end up at Lakers somehow.

New Orleans will have a amazing young core in Robinson, Zion, (Randle maybe), Knox, Johnson, Barrett, Smith and Holiday or a return of him (maybe Suns pic to take White PG ?)

Since the Lakers will sign Butler and Cousins.

So the Mavs should target signs or trade:

Drummond or Valenciunas (Randle?)
Leonard, Middleton, Brogdon, Amuni or Lamb
Walker, Russell or Rubio.

A trade proposal will follow up!

16 Jun 2019 02:04:16
Well, that didn't take long to be wrong.

16 Jun 2019 03:26:22
AD is already a Laker.

16 Jun 2019 04:45:24
Ad to lakers is official.

The Hawks are a team to watch this off-season. They're loaded with draft picks and have cap space for a Max FA. If they want to take a chance, I can see them making a solid offer to NO similar to what Toronto did for Kawhi.

ATL- Anthony Davis
NOP- John Collins, Kevin Hueter, Allen Crabb, #8, #10, 2021 first (top 10 protected)

NOP requirement for Davis
All-Star (check)
Young Player (check)
two firsts (check)

Sign Demarcus Cousins to MAX

17- Romeo Langford, SG
35- Naz Reid, PF
41- Carson Edwards, PG
44- Kris Wilkes, SF

PG- Trae Young/Carson Edwards
SG- Kent Bazemore/Romeo Landford
SF- DeAndre Bembry/Kris Wilkes
PF- Anthony Davis/Naz Reid
C- Demarcus Cousins/Alex Len

11 Jun 2019 17:32:15
No all-star in that package.

11 Jun 2019 17:37:19
Collins is close enough. He clearly has the upside and already isn’t far off.

11 Jun 2019 17:50:34
Yeah, Collins has star potential, and that's two top 10 picks. If anything, that's an overpay by Atlanta.

Also, a max deal for Cousins is a horrible horrible decision.

11 Jun 2019 17:54:29
Magsnusarn, He may not be a voted All-Star, but he is better than anything NY or LA would offer. No one outside of those two teams would offer them their asking bc of his looming FA status and desire to play in either of those cities. With Durant getting hurt, i think he stays in GS one more year (accepts his $31 mil option) and changes this off-season. Making a few teams change paths, especially in the East.

11 Jun 2019 18:23:28
Bmiller66, I can't see Cousins going there without the Max. So while i agree it is an overpay for him, it would be the only way to lure him there imo. I also don't think it is too bad seeing how he is only 29 and a year removed from a dominant Big man.

11 Jun 2019 18:24:56
Not to mention Davis enjoyed playing with Cousins. It is more about giving Davis a reason to re-sign.

11 Jun 2019 18:41:07
Insider, it felt they minimized each other’s games. They were just redundant and that was ore injury Cousins. He’ll like never be that guy again.

11 Jun 2019 18:54:07
Watching him play with GS, he's a shell of his former self. He's not a top 10 center. Defensively, that injury turned him from average to horrible. I think he's pretty comparable to Kanter at this stage.

And yeah, I think the Davis/ Cousins pairing was unsuccessful. NO was better without Cousins.

10 Jun 2019 01:11:10
With Kyrie trending towards the Knicks, the Hornets seemingly intent on offering Kemba the SuperMax, and the Pelicans possibly preferring other packages, it’s probably a good idea to think about contingency plans for the Knicks landing win now pieces to go around KD.

Knicks send #3 pick and Lance Thomas
Raptors send Pascal Siakam and Fred Vanfleet

This is worth it for the Knicks because Pascal is young and cost controlled coming out of his rookie deal and into his 2nd contract. He’s also got everything you need out of the modern player and can help shield KD from having to guard the best wing of the other team. Plus the Knicks get Finals hero VanFleet on a deal worth only 8 mil a year. Makes sense for the Raptors if Kawai walks because it kicks off a strong rebuild with a Canadian centerpiece in Barrett.

I know this is going to be the controversial one because Siakam doesn’t seem like the kinda guy you would want for 3 but I think that kind of role player, essentially filling the Draymond-ish role, is invaluable. Also, our expectations for rookies is also ridiculous, for example if Marvin Bagley ends up with a career like Siakam, that’s a win if you ask me, and that’s a way better draft class.

Knicks send Frank Ntilikina and Kevin Knox
Spurs send Demar DeRozan.

Spurs are said to be trying to move DeRozan ahead of FA especially when the franchise is ready to unleash their new look young backcourt in Murray and White. Here, they get 2 high upside prospects including a forward which they desperately need. Knicks get a true second star and guy who loves to playmake and would be highly likely to resign.

Maybe not the depth chart of dreams Knick fans envisioned but a really solid team with some interesting line ups.

DSJ/ Vanfleet
Deandre Jordan (resigned) / Mitchell Robinson

Go Small:

It’s a team with a ton of playmaking, tons of rim protection, and decent spacing. KD could go back and forth between walking supernova and ultimate off-ball threat. This team would immediately be in the top tier of the East. I think they match up well with the Bucks but probably not as well against the 6ers.

10 Jun 2019 04:17:04
Be patient. The orderlies will be by with your medicine any minute now.

10 Jun 2019 05:08:45
I like Pascal and Vanfleet so that's not a bad trade if, and big if, a top free agent signs with NY. If KD doesn't sign with NY, Kyrie won't sign. I don't think Kawhi is leaving Toronto yet, if he does it will be to Clippers. Maybe Knicks get Butler and someone like Cousins or Gasol. I doubt that happens, and NY still won't be title contender if it does.

Package for DeRozen is a joke. Those are not 2 high upside prospects, an average prospect and a bust.

10 Jun 2019 11:57:05
Siakim is not being dealt for pick 3, guy is about to become a multi time All-Star.

10 Jun 2019 11:59:09
Kyrie Irving is trending toward the Nets, not the Knicks. ;)

10 Jun 2019 16:12:02
Toronto isn’t moving either of those guys.

13 Jun 2019 20:09:29
yah looks good but leonardo is going to resign 2 year player option. and Raptors will keep the same team to repeat if they win tonight game 6. and . big and they should trade Powell for shooters. bring in Seth curry resign green and bring in more young players to help with speed and length.

08 Jun 2019 01:43:45

Clippers: Davis
assuming Kawhi leaves Raptors still sign him to max contract.
After Kawhi signing there will still be around 25mil available salary

sign Wesley Matthews 2yr/20mil
sign Jeff Green 1yr vet min
sign Wayne Ellington 2yr/14mil
resign Pat Beverley 3yr/30mil


Pelicans: Beal, 1st rd pick Clippers, 1st rd pick Sixers, 2nd rd pick Clippers
rebuilding while still competing, get a young all-star as AD's replacement on their team. A flexible guard combo of Beal and Holiday who can both play pg and sg


Wizards: Gallinari, SGA, Robinson, 1st rd pick Clippers
get a young PG with lots of potential


assume all 1st are future

31 May 2019 15:12:45
Pelicans/ OKC/ Raptors

Pelicans get westbrook

OKC get Lowry/ Powell/ 1st round pick 2021 from Raptors/ 2nd round pick 2019 from raptors/

Raptors get Holiday/ S. Hill


31 May 2019 16:50:41
Pels say no. Westbrook isn't a leader.

01 Jun 2019 13:47:55
Why would raptors do this.

29 May 2019 23:32:25
Raptors offseason
Raptors trade Lowry for Lonzo and the forth overall pick
Next they trade Ibaka Siakam ananoby 4th pick for ad
Resign Leonard
Sign Durant with cap space freed up by Lowry and have the nicest roster ever
Pg lonzo vanvleet
Sg Leonard Powell
Sf Durant fa
Pf Davis Boucher
C Gasol fa

30 May 2019 00:37:53
I mean, clearly Lowry has no where near that value. Idk if the lakers would do Lowry straight up for ball. I have to assume this was a bit of a joke post. If not. Wow.

30 May 2019 03:21:18
If ball is rumored for the 7th pick. Lowry is worth 4th and ball.

29 May 2019 20:48:28
raptors offseason
trade lowry for lonzo and 4th overall pick
then trade siakam ibaka annanoby 4th pick
sign Durant
resign lenoard
sign biyombo
and hood

pg lonzo vanveet
sg lenoard powell
sf durrant hood
pf davis boucher
c gasol biyombo

29 May 2019 21:01:43
Lakers say no. Lowry isn't worth Ball and #4 pick.

29 May 2019 21:47:48
Lowry isn’t worth’s quarter of that and how are you just signing Durant? The Raptors are way over the soft cap.

29 May 2019 23:39:51
Lowry would be worth Ball and and mid to late 1st, but not pick four.

I imagine you’re making a S&T with those players for KD. Oh wait, no, you’re trying to sign KD on top of dealing for AD while being over the cap, got it. And Hood is going to take a vet minimum? Why not see if you could sign Klay at the same time.

This one ain’t good Raps fan.

02 Jun 2019 05:23:11
Not over cap check baud.

25 May 2019 17:21:47
if Kawaih leaves

raptors trade lowry to lakers for lonzo and 4th pick

raptors trade ibaka to boston for two of their 2019 1st rounders and hayward

raptors sign and trade gasol to Orlando for fultz and a 2020 first

25 May 2019 17:33:29
Lakers would reject No. 1, Celtics would reject No. 2, and Raps would be foolish to do No. 3.

25 May 2019 17:36:29
I can see this happening.

25 May 2019 19:07:05
The Raptors are getting way to to much in all of these. All the guys being traded are overpaid, old and getting worse. You’d have trouble trading any of them into open space.

25 May 2019 19:48:34
Raptors can get a future first from lakers and cap relief. Not ball and 4th pick. Wondering if the Raptors can take on that Deng money?

The second trade is up in the air. Depends on Boston direction. In The Raptors view are getting two picks in case heyward just has flashes of being good and paying him that extra year of 30 plus mil. Paying someone 30 plus mil just to be there is worth two late first.

26 May 2019 06:05:24
Hey boys, your team is in finals with good chance to win. And your breaking up the team.

27 May 2019 02:47:51
I think the teams in LA are going to be disappointed when Kawhi resigns with Toronto.

25 May 2019 12:14:25
Mavs - Mills Belinelli and Tor 1st
Spurs - Hardaway

- Mavs add 3&d PG who can play w Doncic and adds a first this year. Saves almost 8mil after 19-20 season
- Spurs add perimeter scoring and get rid of PG logjam

Mavs draft Gafford
Spurs draft Washington



25 May 2019 13:40:00
Just like when Hardaway and his contract was in New York, he is not going to get you a 1st round draft pick in return.

Especially for a couple of expiring contracts so the Spurs are stuck with Hardaway's PTO.

Although I do agree that Mills is the type of "dont need the ball" PG that would be a good pairing with doncic.

25 May 2019 16:11:52
Hardaway is not good.

25 May 2019 16:57:54
This is not a good deal for the Spurs.
1} Hardaway is not worth his contract so it makes this a non-starter.
2) Hardaway plays SG. Spurs badly need a SF defender. He does not fit the Spurs needs.
3) Way too much to give up for Hardaway.

26 May 2019 06:07:00
Belinelli just as good.

21 May 2019 05:21:29
Off season plan for the Raptors

trade Ibaka for draft picks and good young role players.

trade Powell and freddy for a draft pick in this years. draft. then draft best player available or a lengthy PG.

resign green and hopefully Leonard.

let Lowry play out his final year.

Gasol will use his players option which isn't a bad thing he's still a very useful center.

bring in some young lengthy players who can shoot.

resign Lin for a mid level and give him a bigger role. and hope siakim and OG have a good off season.
siakim needs to get better in the mid range game his jump shot and maybe a fade away.
OG needs to become a dead eye 3 and D player. learn from green.
keep McCaw and give him a bigger role off the bench and he needs to work on his 3 point shoot.
keep Boucher. bring in more Canadian players.

last but not least they need to round out the roster with length and shooters.

21 May 2019 06:07:53
Nobody wants Ibaka, Powell or FVV.

21 May 2019 10:17:38
U have 2nd best team in nba you want break them up, smh. Rkenne Ibaka, fleet and Powell would be best players on cavs so stop your bs.

21 May 2019 12:12:00
And you said add length 17 times. Oh. One last thing. Add length.

21 May 2019 13:50:53
Shizzee, so the Knicks trade both the Dallas picks do those guys, you’re happy about it?

21 May 2019 19:34:18
I would be interested in Ibaka, but I am not give you much in draft picks OR young talent. Something like swanigan and a couple of 2nd rounders would be my max offer.

21 May 2019 20:11:43
Fredman, you’d have to match his 24 million dOllar salary.

21 May 2019 05:12:08
If Raptors lose and can swing a trade to keep Leonard. then here's a player they should go after.

Raptors resign Leonard by trading siakim Ibaka OG freddy. with future draft picks for A Davis. and others to round out the salary.

Raptors would have another Star in Davis next to him would be Gasol Leonard Resign green and play out Lowry's contract for his last year.

then sign some role players. keep McCaw, boucher, resign Lin and then bring in shooters.
and for God sacs. sign Carter the man and still shoot. and great bench guy to have for the young guys

21 May 2019 09:02:00
Kawhi will be gone and Davis will follow the next season, if you trade all your players and picks for Davis, when he leaves who will you have?

20 May 2019 15:33:02
Raptors/ Hornets

Hornets get - Lowry, Gasol, Anunoby

Raptors- Batum, Kemba, Biyombo


20 May 2019 16:33:57
Can’t happen, Kemba can not S&T with other teammates.

20 May 2019 18:42:16
Can't sign and trade kemba, terrible deal for Toronto

11 May 2019 02:09:03
Reptors Pelicans
If Kawhi commits to Toronto

Raptors get Davis, Moore, Hill
Pelicans get Siakam, Lowry, Anunoby, Ibaka, and what ever picks it takes to make it happen 1st and 2nd round.

Pelicans get a really good young player in Siakam they get a decent young player Anunoby, Lowry and Ibaka both expire after next season so they would have a lil over 50 mil in expiring contracts just between them 2 so they would have some cap space to make some moves in next year FA. And They get whatever picks it takes to get it done.

Raptors Pair Leonard and Davis then when Gasol accepts his PO they can trade him for a guard or keep him and play him and Davis together. But the main thing is they pair Leonard and Davis then build around them in FA and whatever other trades but with them 2 together you have a great building block. They give up whatever picks it takes cause with them together they are contenders for multiple years if they can get Davis to stay.

What do yall think?

11 May 2019 04:53:55
Take Ibaka and Lowry out, add FVV and Powell, and it’s pretty interesting. Siakam looks like an allstar and there are a lot of nice younger guys in that package. I’d probably take it over the Lakers offer.

21 May 2019 05:24:42
I would never trade Lowry not now. specially after DeRozan gone. take Lowry out and add freddy.
and other players to round out the roster.

10 May 2019 18:03:10
Offseason Prediction:

Kyrie signs with the Lakers

Kawhi stays with Toronto

Clippers sign KD and Jimmy Butler.

10 May 2019 18:36:23
Definitely believable. It's hard to gauge where all these guys are leaning at this point, but the Clippers are a great landing spot for a star or two. Leonard seems happy in Toronto (and they're winning a lot) . Kyrie is impossible to read on what he's thinking.

11 May 2019 00:14:34
Don’t the clippers need to trade Danilo before they can sign 2 maxes? Also don’t think kawhi is staying.

11 May 2019 02:07:47
Kyrie and kd ny.

Butler Lakers

Leonard clippers then ad next year.

11 May 2019 16:00:35
IF GS win it all.

Draymond traded to Lakers
AD traded to Knicks
Kawhi-Will stun us all and pick somewhere like Atlanta. haha.

11 May 2019 16:19:59
Neither Kawhi or or kd want to be in lebrons shadow or same city.

11 May 2019 20:20:48
Really want to see how that Draymond trade to the Lakers works.

12 May 2019 04:15:24
Disagree shizzee, I think both would love to be in the same city as LBJ, and show him up as the better team.

21 May 2019 05:29:47
Kyrie signs with Lakers. yes
Leonard with Raptors yes
but KD to NY.
Jimmy stays with Philly

philly trades Simmon's.
Cavs trade Love
and Kemba Walker walks.

07 May 2019 22:35:32
If Raptors beat 76ers:

Philly completely goes into win now mode and trades Ben Simmons as he destroys the spacing:

Suns get Ben Simmons and J. Simmons
76ers get Jackson, Bridges and Suns own Pick No. 1 protected. If Suns Pick is No. 1 Philly gets Bucks Pick and Suns 2020 1st rounder unprotected.

Why 76ers like it:
They can draft Ja Morant to contribute immediatly at PG. Additionally they add depth at the wing to back up Butler, Redick and Harris. They will be true contenders with this roster and still have young players for the future.

Suns do it to get the perfect PG next to Booker. Elite D and court vision, with really high upside. In 3-4 years that might be the best backcourt.

07 May 2019 22:54:48
The lottery is a week from today. By the time any trade would happen, they would know where they're picking.

08 May 2019 00:10:31
Morant probably already better than simmons suns say no thanks.

08 May 2019 01:57:51
I can see it happening but it’ll seem like the same thing will happen w the Suns. Ayton is an even worse 3pt shooter than Embiid therefore the spacing will be just ass bad. The only way I can the spacing issue being fixed if Simmons played with a big man like Porzingis.

08 May 2019 02:14:49
It’s not terrible value, but This doesn’t help them win now. Jackson’s a recovery project, and rookie Point Guards have a huge learning curve and that’s time the 6ers would not have in this scenario.

08 May 2019 03:59:51
Simmons and Simmons are not worth that much. not even close.

08 May 2019 16:21:33
No way I give up even a top 3 pick for him. Maybe Jackson straight across. Simmons disappears way to often, and he really hasn't improved since he's come in the league.

09 May 2019 00:17:18
How is a guy who hasn't played a minute in the nba already better than an all star shizzee.

07 May 2019 05:43:25
Thunder off season moves complete makeover. Let me know your thoughts on the trades. As a Thunder fan i may be giving players to high of value or trying not to be biase giving them to low of value idk tried to keep it fair. I know the realistic chance of all  this happening is like a 1% chance if that, but are the trades fair for both teams? And would it make the Thunder better?

Trade 1 Thunder Magic

Thunder- Augustin Gordon 2019 1st future 2nd
Magic- Westbrook

Trade 2 Thunder Wizards

Thunder- Beal
Wizards- Adams OKC 19 1st and ORL 19 1st they got from previous trade.

Trade 3 Thunder Raptors

Thunder Ibaka
Raptors Grant Ferguson Roberson (exp), and a 2nd if needed

To sum it up
Thunder give up Westbrook, Adams, Grant, Ferguson, Roberson +picks

Thunder gain Gordon, Augustin, Beal, Ibaka, and a 2nd if not used for Ibaka.

Thunder new line up.
PG Schroder/ Augustin
SG Beal/ Diallo/ Burton
SF George/ Nader
PF Gordon/ Patterson
C   Ibaka/

They use their Mid level exception and minimum contracts to fill out the rest of their roster and fix their depth.
Again i know this would never happen, but are these trades fair and would this Thunder team be better? Please give me feedback.

07 May 2019 05:46:39
While doing this i assumed Noel declines his player option and tries to get a better contract. That is why he isn't up there.

07 May 2019 05:47:03
Trade 2 isn’t enough and I’d probably pass on trade 3, if you do trade 1.

07 May 2019 05:59:17
What if they throw in 2024 1st round on top of the others so Adams 2 2019 1sts and a future 1st for Beal.

07 May 2019 16:58:32
I just don’t see it. Maybe, if Grant is involved and you find a 3rd team for Adams. He’d make some sense for a good team, but if I’m a young team, I’m worried that he’ll be broken down before I’m good. He just wouldn’t hold much value for me and I’d be afraid that he would be hard to deal.

21 May 2019 05:35:35
the whole reason why PG13 signed with the thunders is because of westbrook if he leaves PG13 is asking for a trade. so thunders just need to stay the course. there a good team but missing a few good players around them. they need a dead eye at SG and a back up.

05 May 2019 00:49:43
SPURS 2019-2020

SAS- turner
IND- mills/ bertans/ sas 2019 1st rd pick (possible charles bassey)

SAS- bridges
PHX- poeltl/ forbes

sas 2019 29 pick frm tor and 2nd rd 49 pick frm sas and metu trade for bardon clarke

gay resign
morris from bos
lopez from bucks
parker from hornets 2.5mil
sefolosha from jazz 2.5mil

C. turner/ lopez
PF. aldridge/ morris/ clarke
SF. bridges/ gay/ sefolosha
SG. derozan/ bilinille/ walker
PG. white/ murray/ parker.

05 May 2019 14:55:04
Soooo. After these trades, Spurs will have about $5 mil in cap space. So how are you going to sign all these FAs with that small of a cap space?

05 May 2019 15:00:25
No from both Indy and Phoenix.

26 Apr 2019 10:40:40
Raps/ Clips

To TOR - Gallo, Robinson, 2020 Philly 1st

To LAC - S&T Leonard

If the Raps have it on good authority that Claw is going to leave to sign in LA, pitching an S&T that nets him the extra year and dollars may be attractive for both parties.

Clips move Gallo’s contract, which definitely opens up another max slot and additional money even after landing their top target.

Raps get a young player in Robinson and a pick. Gallo’s contract is expiring, so it lines up perfectly time wise with Lowry, Serge and Gasol’s deals to clear 90% of their cap space at the end of next year and go total rebuild.

26 Apr 2019 13:12:58
I’m pretty sure you can’t give the extra year in a s and t.

26 Apr 2019 16:16:24
It also doesn't matter. Anything more than 2 years will be supermax extension time.

22 Apr 2019 20:07:06
Far fetched crazy idea wouldn't happen I don't know if it can happen, but here it is. 3 team trade raptors warriors thunder

Leonard KD both agree and the teans do it so they don't lose a super star for nothing.

Warriors get Leonard S&T
Thunder get KD S&T
Raptors get Westbrook

Warriors keep a super star SF stay a super team and get someone to replace the defense they lose in either Thompson this year or Green next year because they can't keep them both. Leonard agrees still a big market and he has a high chance at more rings.

Thunder also fire Billy Donovan pair up George and KD build around them change it up cause what they have isn't working. KD agrees to go back to OKC since Westbrook and Donovan are gone to try and bring a title to OKC.

Raptors then trade Lowry for the best package they can get Westbrook replaces him. i'm sure Westbrook isn't their player of choice but i'm sure they would rather have Westbrook than lose Leonard for nothing. And maybe in the east with a deeper roster and better coach Westbrook can lead Raptors to at least conference finals.

Let me know What u think. Is it even possible for this to happen?

22 Apr 2019 20:28:54
I'd add another shooter at the PF, OR swing for Walker in a S &T. Thunder compete for a title with a lineup like that. RW isn't as valuable as KD, and KL. SVG would be a great fit. He's smart, and he knows team build, and fit. Presti pulls the personnel strings, but he's pretty good, and I think he and SVG would agree on a lot.

22 Apr 2019 20:31:38
Kd and Leonard would probably not want to do this. Plus, Kd and Leonard have more value than Westbrook.

22 Apr 2019 20:43:59
KD would have to agree to go back to OKC and that bridge was burnt when he left.

23 Apr 2019 03:49:05
Raps rather rebuild. Russ is great until playoffs.

22 Apr 2019 15:12:52
Thunder Raptors
Thunder Lowry, Siakam, Anunoby, 1st round pick
Raptors westbrook

Raptors try this before FA as a final push to keep Leonard. Russ and Leonard could make a great duo and if Leonard leaves they still have a super star to lead the team and they have him long term don't have to worry about him leaving in FA.

Thunder change it up after another likely 1st round exit. They keep an all star PG while improving at PF. And get a young athletic player in Anunoby they then try pairing Schroder Grant and Roberson along with their 2019 1st and the 1st they get from raptors and another 1 if needed so those players and 2 or 3 first to get an all star SG like Beal or someone. But the main thing here is do this trade then build around them however u can i know Presti could do something good with them.

22 Apr 2019 16:19:30
Way too much for Westbrook. Also, I think that trade would cement Leonard walking away. If any two stars seem like they wouldn’t personally or professionally get along, it’s those two.

22 Apr 2019 16:32:42
I wouldn’t give up Siakam for Russ let alone the rest.
