Hornets-Jazz

Hornets- Rubio,Allen,2 2nd's

Jazz- Kemba Kamisky

Jazz get a big upgrade at guard whie trying to compete

Hornets get rubio who they can flip for a young piece later and a good prospect to pair with monk in the backcourt

15 Aug 2018 19:55:24
That’s awful for the Hornets.

15 Aug 2018 21:56:48
Rubio is better fit for Jazz than Kemba

12 Aug 2018 01:40:02
Simple Trade -- NBA Trade Machine Approved

DEN/ OKC/ UTAH

Denver gets Nader from OKC

Oklahoma City gets Crowder from Utah

Utah gets Abrines from OKC and Hernangomez from Denver.


OKC stretch Singler and waive him.

12 Aug 2018 18:09:45
Utah says no.

13 Aug 2018 01:41:47
okcfan your name fits the direction of this trade.

11 Aug 2018 22:59:36
Jazz get - Hill and Korver

Cavs get - Warren Burks(exp) Chandler (exp) and Chriss

Suns get - Rubio

Hill/Exum
Mitchell/Allen
Ingles/Korver
Crowder/Favors
Gobert/Udoh

Sexton/Clarkson
Osman/Smith
Warren/Dekker
Love/Nance
Thompson/Chriss

Rubio/Knight
Booker/Daniels
Jackson/Bridges
Ariza/Bender
Ayton/Holmes

12 Aug 2018 00:44:13
I think PHX values Warren and Chris's to highly to include them both, along with a solid vet presence in Chandler to mentor Ayton, for Rubio. Suns say NO.

12 Aug 2018 02:27:42
I like the trade but i think Warren has more value.

12 Aug 2018 04:08:38
Delusional cavs fan lmao. Why would jazz do this. Why would cavs get warren and chriss for george and korver. Smh.

12 Aug 2018 19:10:40
The jazz would never do this. Rubio was fantastic for the jazz and George hill is obviously not fantastic and Korver is over the hill, and Utah has ingles, sefololosha, crowder already to play the 3.

10 Aug 2018 04:38:26
SAC - UTA

Kings receive: Crowder, Udoh
Jazz receive: Labissiere, Koufos, future 2nd rounder

SAC
Fox / Ferrell / Mason
Hield / Bogdanovic / Shumpert
Crowder / Jackson
Bagley / Bjelica / Randolph
Cauley-Stein / Giles / Udoh / Davis

UTA
Rubio / Exum / Neto
Mitchell / Burks / Allen
Ingles / O'Neale / Sefolosha
Favors / Labissiere / Niang
Gobert / Koufos / Bradley

Kings fill SF hole with a good contract, even though Crowder's numbers dipped a bit last year. Koufos' departure opens up minutes for Giles. They buy out McLemore.

The Jazz lose Crowder's versatility, but they get more depth at PF & C positions this year. They also free up around $6 mil in cap space for next off-season. Labissiere seems like a good fit, and will become a restricted free agent at the end of Favors' current contract.

10 Aug 2018 06:10:19
I don't think the jazz would do it.

08 Aug 2018 19:20:49
What about this as a deadline deal?

The Cavs get Burks, Exum, Allen and a 1st depending on how Love is plus filler

The Jazz get Love and Korver

The Jazz add a lot of offense to team with a ton of defense and give the team the potential to get deep in the playoffs.

The Cavs get young talent and clear cap space. It's probably the best way they can go either way, but probably the only way to go if they're out of the playoffs at that point.

08 Aug 2018 19:46:59
I do like the fit of Love in Utah next to Gobert. Seems like decent value for an all star in Love. I could definitely see it happening. That would push Utah into the status of a top 3 team in the west to me (maybe even close to even with Houston) .

08 Aug 2018 19:53:41
Love costs too much and wouldn't improve their team enough to justify the expense.

09 Aug 2018 00:03:51
If salaries match who is Utah trading that would stop this trade@btec the only name I see is exum worth much that first is late and the rest is garbage I’m pretty sure they would take Love and korver.

08 Aug 2018 18:43:21

Lakers are 8 seed at best with current roster and will get swept.

08 Aug 2018 19:26:59
@shizz lakers will make at least one trade at the deadline that makes them contenders.

08 Aug 2018 23:04:04
Their not trading their young pieces. How are going contend west. I think they will accept their faith and be patient.

09 Aug 2018 00:05:07
Be patient with a old lebron? Do you even watch basketball?

03 Aug 2018 20:52:09
Jazz: Burks

Pelicans: Hill, Bluiett

03 Aug 2018 02:46:13
Thunder lack a solid backup SF and have several young players that can battle for the backup SG position Ferguson, TLC, Diallo so I think they should trade Alex Abrines using the TPE from Melo trade to get a solid SF for the bench. Most of the trades would make the luxury bill go up a lot but Thunder could cut, trade, or stretch Singler to make them cheaper and open a roster spot after the trade.

Thunder get Demarre Carroll
Nets get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd

Thunder get Marvin Williams
Hornets get Abrines

Thunder get Korver
Cavs get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Bojan Bogdanovic
Pacers get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Josh Richardson
Heat get Abrines, 2 2 nd’s

Thunder get Tony Snell
Bucks get Abrines

Thunder get Courtney Lee
Knicks get Abrines, 1 2nd if needed

Thunder get Jonathan Simmons
Magic get Abrines 2 2nd’s

Thunder get CJ Miles
Raptors get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get Garrett Temple
Grizzlies get Abrines, a 2nd if needed

Thunder get E'Twaun Moore
Pelicans get Abrines, 1 or 2 2nd’s

Thunder get Jae Crowder
Jazz get Abrines, 2 2nds

At trade deadline if Ariza won't sign with sun's next year
Thunder get Ariza
Suns get Abrines, 1 or 2 seconds

Give me your opinions. Will any of these work?

03 Aug 2018 05:24:03
Can't include a TPE with a player.

03 Aug 2018 06:13:48
Dang I didn't realize that. Well ignore all of those.

24 Jul 2018 20:17:25
The Jazz get Walker and Fournier

The Magic get Rubio(exp) and a Jazz 2nd

The Hornets get Burks(exp), Grant, Allen, the Orlando 19 1st (lottery protected converts as 2 2nds after 2 years) and Utah's 2019 1st

The Jazz get an all star and another scorer help their offense.

The Magic clear Fournier for essentially a 2nd and grant. plus get a real pg to help develop their bigs.

The Hornets clear salary, get 2 picks and 2 solid prospects for their star.

24 Jul 2018 23:08:26
Too much from magic for rubio.

24 Jul 2018 23:40:01
Magic shouldn't even conditionally give up a 1st.

24 Jul 2018 16:55:30
The Cavs get Burks, Exum, and the Jazz 2019 1st

The Jazz get Love

24 Jul 2018 17:05:06
Not after extension lmao.

24 Jul 2018 17:09:13
Mainly they just signed favors, but I guess the deal works. Exum is a pretty good future prospect. Jazz have no real interest is my guess. Jerebko did similar love type things (shooting) and they let him go. Love being a terrible defender makes him kind of a tough trade. got to be to the right team with the right hole to fill. Dallas when nowitzki retires?

24 Jul 2018 18:01:57
Loves defensive woes are over stated and with the personnel in Utah, they can protect him. He’s fine when he’s inside and he closes out well. He just can’t stay with wings on the perimeter. Which isn’t a huge deal if you have Gobert behind you and when you’re sharing the floor with 4 other guys that can defend the perimeter you can be hidden inside or on corner shooters. He also want be expected to be a big contributor protecting the rim. Metrics have him as a slight net positive on defense the past 3 years actually.

What he can do is take the pressure off of Mitchell on offense, force defenders to stay outside clearling lanes for him, letting Gobert get more lobs and offensive boards, and e pushes Ingles and other guys back in the pecking order letting them end up with more free looks. The Jazz clearly need more offense if they’re going to make a jump and I think Love can do that without really disrupting their defensive ability.

24 Jul 2018 18:06:24
It's weird to me that people compare Love to these incredibly average role players like Jerebko. Love is an all star, Jerebko is an 8th man.

Love would be a perfect fit in Utah. They have defenders all over the place, and no one to actually score aside from Mitchell. Gobert and Favors would be able to cover most of Love's shortcomings on defense. Sometimes you have to sacrifice some defense for more offense. Utah is a great example.

24 Jul 2018 18:51:17
What's weird to me is that's what someone like you takes from reading that post. A straight up comparison. Yep that's what I said word for word. Thanks for assuming I'm the dumbest guy on here.

24 Jul 2018 19:35:36
They can trade him again in January have to wait 6 months
So it would have to be by trade deadline.

24 Jul 2018 20:06:51
Btec in all fairness, you wrote trying to compare love to a tall back up that shoots. Not only does Love shoot better than him, but he’s an elite rebounder, a great outlet passer, a solid passer from the elbow, draws free throws at a high rate, Love is a better post player and metrics show Love as a much better defender. It’s like comparing Larry Nance jr to Lebron because they can both jump high.

24 Jul 2018 20:53:58
"Jazz have no real interest is my guess. Jerebko did similar Love type things (shooting) and they let him go. "

Sounds like a direct comparison, but clearly I misunderstood.

It's not just that one comment though. Phili fans think that Saric is the same as Love, which is crazy. Blazer fans don't want Love because of Aminu.

People undervalue Love, who is a really good player. He's not a top 10 player, but he's a very solid second option kind of guy. He's the PF version of McCollum (or McCollum is the guard version of him? ) .

25 Jul 2018 16:54:23
You and rkenne16 even argue and bitch when your dead wrong. Similar type things is a direct comparaison? Jerebko plays exactly like love wouldn't be? These are obviously too difficult for you to comprehend. The jazz did barely play jerebko they had favors and crowder, still do and wouldn't want or need love. Your man love for Kevin love is Hilarious. 30 mil give me a break.

25 Jul 2018 16:59:53
Your using analytics rkenne16 not metrics. Rich white men use numbers to relay information to them so they can comprehend whether to give their worker a raise or not. It's a nothing number to people who actually scout talent. You put a passing characterization down twice. Love is a bad defender, is slow up and down the floor, is injured often, has a 30 mil contract, you try to trade this guy you have so much man love for often. He rebounds well, he shoots well, he passes well. He doesn't handle the ball. Quit being dorks.

24 Jul 2018 16:53:17
The Timberwolves get Ingles, Crowder, Allen, and a 2019 Utah 1st

The Jazz get Butler

24 Jul 2018 17:16:07
I wouldn't do it if I was the jazz. Not sure about butler but I imagine at his age Utah isn't his first choice.

24 Jul 2018 23:21:27
His age? You mean his prime! Dam people on here need to watch other teams or get educated on basketball.

25 Jul 2018 00:44:31
Right made, it’s not like your getting an early 20s two way wing. Utah is. Really good team that needs a big move to move into that never teir of teams. The NBA moves fast. If you can make a move to get in to championship contention, you need to do it. Look at good young teams like OKC, Chicago, Portland and Indiana recently that looked like they would have million chances and it all fell apart in a hurry. That could happen to anyone. Gobert or Mitchell could blow out their knee and never be the same for the Jazz. Irving could walk from the Celtics and Horford could fall off. Embiid could destroy his back for Philly. None of these teams have any guarantee past what they currently have. Even the Warriors, next year Curry could destroy his ankle, KD could walk, and Green could just Fade into obscurity. Butler is in his prime and probably has 3 or 4 years left at that level. You can get him cheap because he only has a year left on his deal. Eventually you’ll either have to get lucky again or take risk and teams don’t get lucky often.

25 Jul 2018 17:00:54
It's in Utah ever been?

22 Jul 2018 03:03:43
Jazz Trade Alec Burke Joe Ingles 2019 first round pick 2019 second round pick

Wolves Trade Jimmy Butler

22 Jul 2018 06:01:44
Interesting. Could maybe have the cap room to then sign Kyrie if they waived Favors next offseason.

22 Jul 2018 06:39:47
But Jimmy Butler had to play Small Forward and Donovan Mitchell going to be beast with him.

22 Jul 2018 18:35:43
Butler and Mitchell are the same player. Both need ball in their hands. Ingles helped spacing.

22 Jul 2018 01:52:16
Cavs offseason finish

Kyle krover to sixers for Jaryd bayeles,2019 Bulls 2nd,2019 kings 2nd

Kevin love to Utah for toney Bradley,Royce O'Neal,epke udoh,Alec Burks,2019 Jazz 1st,2020 2nd

Sign David Nwaba 2yr 7 mil

Sign Trevor booker 1yr

20 Jul 2018 22:38:03
2 Knicks trades

Jazz get Hardaway
Knicks get Burks Sefolosha

Jazz need more offensive depth

Mavs get Lee Thomas
Knicks get Mathews

Mavs lack production on the wings

Burke/Mudiay/Trier
Ntilikina/Burks/Dotson
Knox/Mathews/Sefolosha
Robinson/Hezonja/Porzingis
Kanter/Noah/Kornet

21 Jul 2018 01:07:34
Love the way the Knicks get all expiring contracts in return, every single player, and knicks send out all bad contracts on long-term deals. Yeah, I bet the other GMs will never notice. This ain't happening. Would be salary cap heaven for the knicks though.

21 Jul 2018 15:32:37
Knicks trading better talent for better contracts. Lee Thomas have more to offer than Mathews only 1 longer. Hardaway is 19 ppg scorer who traded for reserved players not even backs up.

21 Jul 2018 15:37:54
I could absolutely see the Mavs trade happening. They want to try to do a little something before the end comes for Dirk, and they seem to have been trying to get rid of Matthews since they picked him up.

The Jazz trade is also possible. Hardaway is an overpaid, but solid bench scorer. If they are in contention, they might be looking for a guy just like him at the deadline. I don't see it happening in the offseason though.

21 Jul 2018 21:25:21
hey jvong, remember when a few days ago you blasted some guy for just arbitrarily blasting a teams posts? yeahhhh, pot meet kettle.

The mavs trade is actually a good trade for the mavs. Both are solid contributors, and Thomas is only guarenteed for 1 mill the last year.

As for the jazz, the jazz are a legit team and would welcome a 2nd scoring option. Hardaway oddly is a good fit there. Stop with the hyperbolic arbitrary trolling.

21 Jul 2018 23:16:55
Im not posting anti knick stuff. i'm just responding to a post. I was actually waiting for your reply once I disagreed with a little sarcasm with a pro knick trade.

22 Jul 2018 10:44:03
And again, you clearly don't understand basketball by just using "a little sarcasm with a pro knick trade" The mavs trade is actually an attractive one for both teams. And the hardaway trade is actually somewhat of an attractive one as well. Perhaps you should watch the sport/ research before professing your lacking wealth of knowledge.

08 Jul 2018 06:53:22
An underrated destination for Carmelo Anthony? The Utah Jazz.

Melo could slide into the starting 4 spot and be the 2nd scoring option that the team needs. Utah is also a good defensive team and has plenty of good defenders so that they could hide Melo’s defensive flaws

I could see him signing for a 1year $3m-$5m deal since Utah still has its MLE

The lineup would be:
Pg. Rubio, Exum, Neto
Sg. Mitchell, Allen, Burke
Sf. Ingles, O’Neale, Sefolosha
Pf. Melo, Crowder
C. Gobert, Udoh, Bradley.

08 Jul 2018 07:21:06
Memphis too. He could get iOS touches and start at the 3 or 4. Playoff team if healthy.

08 Jul 2018 07:22:35
Sorry scratch that lineup. I forgot favors.

The lineup would actually be:
Pg. Rubio, Exum, Neto
Sg. Mitchell, Allen, Burks
Sf. Ingles, O’Neale, Sefolosha
Pf. Melo, Crowder, Udoh
C. Gobert, Favors, Bradley.

08 Jul 2018 07:47:28
Favors still starts at PF.

09 Jul 2018 08:03:58
Melo has no trade, so no utah deal.

29 Jun 2018 18:03:16
Cavs Trade Jordan Clarkson Collin Sexton for Kemba Walker

Dallas Trade Dwight Powell future second round pick for Tristan Thompson

Cavs Trade Kyle Korver to Portland for Evan Turner

Cavs Trade Jr Smith future second round pick to Wolves for Tyus Jones

Let Jeff Green Jose Caleron Walk

Cavs Buyout Evan Turner Contract

Cavs Trade Kevin Love future 2021 first round pick to Jazz for Rudy Gobert

29 Jun 2018 18:16:14
The first two aren't bad.

The Portland trade seems awful for Cleveland. Buyouts don't get you out of the cap hit, so they'd pay him 17 million each of the next two years to just leave? Portland would do cartwheels if they could get out of that contract without giving up picks.

The last trade is really bad though. I think Utah values Gobert about the same as NO values Davis. It would take a massive offer to get him. Like two young studs and multiple firsts. Cleveland just doesn't have that kind of valuable resources.

29 Jun 2018 18:38:16
Bruh Kyle Korver is making 7 million for 2 year so Portland are trying to save some money by getting rid of Evan Turner Contract and Cavs can buyout his contract and Kevin Love is Superstar he would be great fit with Donovan Mitchell.

29 Jun 2018 19:00:02
The first trade I've seen where the blazers are rolling the other team. Still no pick but with turner i volved this is okay. Korver is only guaranteed 4 mil season after next. Turner is 34 million no matter what. 11 mil vs 34 mil? Korver is the better shooter and maybe even an equal or better defender comparably.

29 Jun 2018 20:22:12
Again, the Cavs can buy the contract out, but that means they pay him 34 million, he’s a 17 million hit on their cap this year and next, and they still need to sign a player for that roster spot. All to unload korver’s 11 million? That’s a bad move by Cleveland.

I like Love, but he’s not CLOSE to Gobert. You obviously think so too, because you want your team to get him. And my opinion doesn’t matter. Utah values Gobert as a top 5 player, and the compensation would have to reflect that.

29 Jun 2018 20:50:12
Bruy say bybe to lebron. cavs are doomed.

29 Jun 2018 21:47:32
Lebron is Toto and Cleveland is Kansas. He's going buh bye.

29 Jun 2018 21:54:06
The Dallas and Utah deals are train wrecks for the Mavs and Jazz.

28 Jun 2018 15:40:18

28 Jun 2018 17:17:45
Good job but Chris Paul its a free Agent.

28 Jun 2018 17:33:26
Why would Lebron stay when you're trading his entire team. He can't make it to the finals with draft picks lol.

28 Jun 2018 17:52:52
Milwaukee doesn't want K. Love, And he certainly isn't worth 2 younger players plus a 1st rd. pick.

28 Jun 2018 18:55:08
Clarkson could be dealt for: Mkg, marvin williams, Cody zeller, dellavedova, bazemore, fournier, Courtney lee, pau gasol maybe. Aminu is too cheap, expiring and blazers are cap strapped at the moment.

28 Jun 2018 19:22:43
Portland trades their only serviceable wing for another undersized scoring guard! Perfect fit!

20 Jun 2018 03:21:17
Pelicans do a sign and trade with Washington ( D. Cousins for Otto Porter and Ian Mahinmi )

Pelicans trade first round draft pick, Solomon Hill and Alexus Ajinca to Houston for restricted free agent Clint Capello so that Houston has cap space to make a run at Lebron or Paul George or Kawhi Leonard.

Pelicans then sign restricted free agent Dante Exum and if Utah wants something in return we give them our 4 million dollar cash MLE, Eton Moore and second round
pick for a sign and trade.

Pelicans roster then is!

PG Rondo/Exum
SG Holiday/Frank Jackson/Jordan Crawford
SF Otto Porter/ Darrius Miller/Deandre Liggins
PF Davis/ Nikola Mirotic
C Clint Capello/ Cheick Diallo

And the Pelicans then have cap room to sign more reserve players.

20 Jun 2018 13:13:43
The deal with Houston actually hurts their cap space, as Capela’s cap hold is less than Hill’s and Ajinca’s salaries. Makes no sense for the Rockets.

20 Jun 2018 13:40:28
I don't think that Capela thing is going to come to fruition, but I really like that Cousins idea! I think the one thing Washington has been lacking is a dominant center, even though I really like what Gortat brings. Cousins would also get to play with Wall, which both would love, and they do have Oubre who should be able to step up into the starting lineup.

For New Orleans, I think it was a good experiment, but Davis is better off as the lone tower. Mahinmi will be a guy who can come in and either play next to him for a little bit or provide that defensive presence when Davis is on the bench. Porter will give them another scorer, giving Rondo a plethora of targets on the offensive end.

21 Jun 2018 11:17:28
The Clint Capela thing won’t happen but would love to see it and to answer how money is gained from this for Houston. They would waive or buy out Hill and Ajinca. Won’t happen but they would save money and get a draft pick.

19 Jun 2018 02:39:40

Multiple Kawhi deals:

Just having fun with a couple of deals, let me know which ones, if any, you like.

#1 - To GSW

Kawhi for Klay and Jordan Bell

Kawhi moves to the two, Warriors and Spurs would have to sign either after next season, Spurs get young C, and if healthy, Claw makes Warriors unstoppable.

#2 - To MIA

Kawhi for JJ, Bam and Justise

Miami loves star players, and they get one in Claw. Spurs take on two years of overpaid but solid James Johnson to get two potential building blocks in Winslow and Bam.

#3 - To POR

Kawhi for Harkless, Aminu, Collins, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Admittedly the worst player package, Spurs get only two solid rotation players and a young C with potential, but this is about picks and depth. Blazers tried their best to add a third star last year, but were unsuccessful. This year they get their guy.

4# - To LAC

Kawhi, Mills for Harris, Beverley, Johnson, pick 12

This is a popular rumour, and is one I like. Harris and Beverley are above average players who offer D and versatility. Johnson adds another shooter, and pick 12 brings a good rotation piece. Kawhi goes home, and Mills offers shooting at the 1. Yes, Clips dealt two stars last year, but I don’t believe it was for a rebuild, so adding a superstar while still keeping a lottery pick in this year’s draft is a win.

#5 - To BOS

Kawhi, Mills for Hayward, Brown

Both Claw and Gordon are coming off major injuries, so both teams are taking a risk. When healthy though, Kawhi is the better player, and Brown is needed to get this deal done. Mills salary matches, but also helps soften the blow should Smart not resign, or if Rozier is needed in a separate deal.

#6 - To NYK

Kawhi for Lee, Frank, Dotson, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Again, not a great player package, but Lee feels like a Spur, Frank and Dejonte are a defensive nightmare and two picks, including 9 brings quality youth. Sounds like Kawhi and his camp have at least a fleeting interest in playing in NY, and him with Zinger would be the foundation for the Knicks turnaround.

#7 - To UTA

Kawhi for Ingles, Thabo, O’Neal and 2018 1st

Claw with Mitchell, and Steiffel would be a scary threesome, though Jazz hesitate as this is the spot Claw is least likely to resign. Spurs get a really solid, underrated player on a good deal in Ingles, an expiring deal in Thabo and two young pieces.

#8 - To LAL

Kawhi for Ingram, Kuzma

Spurs don’t get pick 25, but also don’t take back Deng. Lakers give up two good building blocks, and keep 25 to try to tie to Deng for another trade.

#9 - To PHI

Kawhi for Saric, Covington and pick 10

Philly gets their star if LBJ doesn’t land there. Spurs get an underrated 3 and D guy, and two young quality pieces.

#10 - To CHI

Kawhi, pick 17 for Valentine, Portis, picks 7 and 22

Chicago speeds up the rebuild, adding Kawhi to Lauri and Kris while keeping a first in this year’s draft. Spurs get youth and two picks.

I think the most likely of these in order are LAC, LAL, CHI. You could add PHI to that if you switched Saric with Fultz.
