Done trade

Miami gets Wade

Cleveland gets Hill and Hood

Sacramento gets Joe Johnson and Shumpert

Utah gets Rose and Crowder

08 Feb 2018 18:34:17
All true but separate trades. Cavs got a "heavily protected" 2nd round pick from Miami for Wade.

08 Feb 2018 18:40:57
Yeah the 2nd went to the Kings immediately though so it's essentially a 4 way deal when you lay it out even if the Wade trade was separate.

08 Feb 2018 19:25:37
Utah got ripped off. Big time.

08 Feb 2018 19:39:11
Jorga, apparently, they were really high on Crowder. I'm surprised how little they ended up getting for him. I'm accused of being a Cavs homer and I thought they should have gotten atleast a late 1st as well.

08 Feb 2018 20:06:53
Apparently THEY were high for being high on Crowder. Utah supposedly had 20 teams inquire about Hood and that was the best they could do? Wow.

11 Feb 2018 04:41:27
Crowder is cheap and way better and healthier than Hood. Utah wants to win games next year and Jae is a great complimentary player.

08 Feb 2018 18:14:05
3 team trade

Cavs get - Hood and Hill

Jazz get - Rose and Crowder

Kings get - Johnson and Shumpert

Cavs also trade Wade back to Heat


08 Feb 2018 18:25:03
Posted the same thing before yours listed. I love this one for the Cavs. Losing Wade hurts a little, but Hood and Hill are great additions. The team is definitely a lot younger.

08 Feb 2018 18:35:40
^^^^ LMAO wow rkenne_16 you're good. How many times are you going to say that you posted something first? ESPN had it before you LOL stop acting like your an NBA inside reporter getting first word of these trades SMH.

09 Feb 2018 15:10:57
Kcku, that wasn't what I was trying to imply. I just didn't mean to repost the same thing as NBA16.

08 Feb 2018 13:32:48
Denver gets Joe Johnson, Crowder, the Cavs 18 1st and a Cavs 2nd

Utah gets Chandler, Frye(exp), and Rose(exp)

The Cavs get Mudiay and Favors

08 Feb 2018 14:51:05
I like this trade for the Cavs and Denver.
But Utah should trade Favors trade for younger assets or keep him.

08 Feb 2018 15:21:05
I think the problem with keeping Favors for them is that he'll probably get close to 15 million, he doesn't fit at pf well in the league and next to Gobert, they have a solid cheap back up center in Epke already, and the roster needs help in other areas. Resigning both Favors and Hood (plus potentially Exum) will put them well over the soft cap. It's rumored that they have interest in Chandler, but I would imagine that Denver wants a first out of him. I'm not sure that Utah should give that up. This helps them get the first for him without giving up their future assets.

08 Feb 2018 16:02:12
DEN has made offers for Evans. Mudiay is essentially a pick, or developing talent. Why would DEN want a late 1st, and a 2nd for a former Lottery pick?

08 Feb 2018 16:15:39
Jorga, Mudiay has gotten less minutes every year in the league and they've continually been looking for a starting pg, while also having Murray. They clearly don't view him as the future of the position and it doesn't appear they don't seem him as valuable player. It's also rumored they're looking to move him or Chandler for a 1st to get rid of Faried with.

08 Feb 2018 17:05:38
Less minutes every year in the league? He is still on a rookie contract! I am aware of the RUMORS! How is a late pick, a 2nd, and Crowder, Johnson = a starting caliber point guard? I disagree with you, and I don't think Mudiay is junk. He's shown signs of being good. He just isn't better than Harris, Murray, or Barton. Doesn't mean he gets traded for garbage. He's good enough for CLE though. Surprise, surprise!

08 Feb 2018 17:40:56
Moot point now, but I don't see Mudiay as even an average starting pg. Maybe low end, but probably a solid back up that's still young. He could develop and his shot has improved, but obviously, he isn't where Denver or anyone thought he would be at this point.

08 Feb 2018 20:08:08
Jorga, Mudiay was traded for a 2nd. Haha.

08 Feb 2018 10:54:10
Utah: D Lillard

Phoe: McCollum

Portland: B Knight+Rubio+ Mitchell+ 1rnd pick Phoe+ 1rnd pick Utah+ 1rnd pick Miami 2021

08 Feb 2018 16:08:49
Ridiculous trades will happen before the draft. Not until then. B. Knight makes absolute 0 sense though. Kills this deal immediately.

08 Feb 2018 17:26:36
No way I'm trading the suns pick for McCollum. He's a goo d player, but he's not even an all star, much less franchise player. There's potentially at least 5 guys in this draft considered franchise players. If the pick falls out of the top 7 then maybe I move it. But I'd rather have the rookie contract.

08 Feb 2018 17:43:34
You want the Sun's to deal one of the top picks in this draft for who? lol not happening.

08 Feb 2018 02:38:52
4 team trade

Kings get - Favors(exp), Johnson(waive) and Hood

Celtics get - Evans

Jazz get - Hill and Green

Grizzlies get - Smart and Labissiere





06 Feb 2018 01:25:23
The Cavs get Favors, Johnson, Hood, Hill, Utah's 1st top 5 protected, a 2nd from Chicago and Utah

The Bulls get Jr Smith and the Cavs 2018 1st top 20 protected

The Kings get Frye, Shumpert, Zizic and a Utah 2nd

The Jazz get IT and Love

06 Feb 2018 04:06:47
Still a bad trade for Utah! The Jazz give up. Favors, Hood, Johnson, a 1st, and a 2nd for IT and Love? Thanks rkene_16, Needed a laugh! Oh yeah, I forgot, You're a Cav's fan!

05 Feb 2018 21:41:48
Utah: Lillard+Turner

Portland: Hood+ Favors+Jordan+ J Johnson

Clippers: Rubio+ 1rnd pick Utah

06 Feb 2018 00:01:35
I'd pass if I were Portland. They're trading a legitimate star, who is controlled for multiple years for a bunch of guys who can walk at the end of the year and getting little in the way of young talent.

05 Feb 2018 21:04:35
Magic asking for fire sale.

Orlando get Kanter A.johnson Booker MCDermott Baker
Knicks A.Gordon Biyombo Fournier Cabarrot Ross
Sixers get Fournier Thomas Hernangomez

Jazz replacement for Hayward

Hardaway O'Quinn for Johnson Favors


05 Feb 2018 21:14:07
How could the Sixers and Knicks both receive Fournier?

05 Feb 2018 21:51:58
Why would they give up Gordon without getting anything of much value back. I can see them giving up anyone else for some smaller assets (other than Isaac), but Gordon looks like he could be an allstar in the not so distant future. They would need a pretty good haul for him.

07 Feb 2018 01:44:38
Salary dump for expiring contract usually what happens in fire sale. Obviously Sixers get Fournier chiptooth.

05 Feb 2018 20:12:22
Utah gets Love, Rose and Zizic

The Cavs get Favors, Hood, Johnson and a top 10 protected 1st

05 Feb 2018 21:18:48
Bad deal for Utah!

05 Feb 2018 21:54:59
Why? Hood is being shopped, Favors isn't going to be resigned, Johnson might be bought out and if Love and Gobert don't play much the rest of the year that pick probably doesn't convey until next year, when if things go well it would be in the 20s.

06 Feb 2018 00:18:32
Utah can do better in other trades, Rose is a backup, Backup. Love has a broken bone, How long before it heals? Who knows about Zizic? Even if Favors doesn't resign, Utah can package him elsewhere. Johnson "Might" be bought out? What if he isn't? PLUS Utah gives up a pick? Again, bad deal for Utah.

06 Feb 2018 02:43:07
Utah would be retarded to give a top ten pick for Love. He can score and rebound and injured a lot lately. Cave biggest mistake was trading Wiggins for Love. He plays no defense at all. Only a team that elite defensively and in bad need for scoring would give up anything for Love at his point. The Cavs are screwed and not going to the finals this year period. They could trade everyone and it won’t be enough. Smartest thing they could do is fleece a team of its best young player and 5-6 1st rd picks for Lebron. He is leaving after this year period and they will be left with old overpaid guys nobody wants.

06 Feb 2018 05:42:22
Crambo, an elite defensive team like Utah? Also, the pick in this scenario can't be top ten as that is what the protection is. This is basically a protected 1st and Hood for Love.

05 Feb 2018 19:48:07
Pistons-Suns- Jazz

Pistons: Booker,Hood

Suns: Stanley Johnson, Burks, 2019 pistons 1st and Jazz 1st round

Jazz: Luke Kennard and Tyler Ulis

05 Feb 2018 20:05:54
Detroit robs both teams. Booker is almost completely untouchable. The Jazz barely get enough back to give up Hood for and there is no way they give up a lottery pick as well.

05 Feb 2018 20:26:42
Suns are not giving up Devin Booker for that package. He's a 21 year old putting up 24,5,5 a night.

05 Feb 2018 20:26:54
Gtfoh booker is untouchable.

05 Feb 2018 20:41:12
Hey Dema give me a hit of that.

06 Feb 2018 00:58:48
Jazz, and Suns hang up the phone on whoever suggests this.

04 Feb 2018 23:17:40
Celtics: Tyreke Evans

Grizzlies: Jamal Crawford, 2018 OKC 1st, and 2018 Celtics 1st.

Timberwolves: Marcus Smart, and 2019 Piston's 2nd.

Basically the T-Wolves need a guard who's better defensively than Crawford off the bench and Smart is actually outscoring Crawford making his expendable to the Wolves. They give up OKC's first which they acquired from Utah for Rubio and get and a 2nd back from the Celtics because I do't believe Smart is worth a 1st.

The Grizzlies get probably the best package they can for Tyreke, getting two firsts and a cheap contract they can trade either this year or next.

Celtics get the scoring 6th man they've needed and with this move almost ensure that they make the finals over the Cavs.

05 Feb 2018 00:16:57
c’s could prob get tyreke for just that 1st, why would they give up smart too for the same return.

03 Feb 2018 17:54:33
I'm confused. Noah is a leader, so why isolate him to make value worth less. Hornicek, u can't play fast with 2 bigs. Spurs play at their pace and can beat anybody. Stop trying to make former players into head coaches. I think Knicks need to New gm and president. Defense wins championship. Bring back van gundy.

Jazz get younger healthier more offensive minded. Rubio will find Kanter and Porzingis great shots. Wings spread off.

Nuggets loaded with PF and milsap will not play hurt for a losing team.

Utah get Porzingis Kanter Hardaway Hernangomez Hornicek
Nuggets get Favors J.Johnson Baker
Knicks get Gobert Milsap Mitchell McCee Jefferson Jazz 2nd


Off season
Noah Thomas top 10 pick to Dallas for Dallas 2nd. Cuban would be intrigued. Beasley resign mid level after signing a superstar. O'Quinn opts in and signs extension. Give ny 25 mil in cap space

You add LeBron 4yr 140mil to this frontcourt and you can talk about best defensive team in nba.


03 Feb 2018 18:43:56
You're not getting 3 stars for Porzingas. He has a ton of value, but not nearly enough for Utah to give up that much and the Nuggets aren't giving up Millsapp for capspace alone.

Also, while you could consider Noah a leader in Chicago (more of a Draymond Green style push the envelope type leader), he's now just an opinionated malcontent that probably doesn't have the talent to play in the NBA any more, who makes to much money and actively tried to fight his coach. The guy is almost unmovable, If the Knicks aren't willing to part with this years first and I'm not even sure that the first alone would be enough to move him.

03 Feb 2018 20:22:09
Hornacek sucks.

03 Feb 2018 20:24:00
Jazz fans have been demanding all season that the team trade all its best players to the Knicks for 20 cents on the dollar. This is their chance!

04 Feb 2018 21:57:01
Probably one of the worst trades I have ever seen! Jazz do not want Kanter back! No way we are giving up Mitchell and Gobert! Oh and sorry to break your heart but Lebron is not going to sign with the Knicks. Ownership/ Management is just as bad as it is right now with the cavs.

02 Feb 2018 12:16:53
DETROIT: Cj McCollum - Terrence Ross - Elfrid Payton

UTAH: S. Johnson

ORLANDO: R. Jackson - L. Kennard

PORTLAND: R. Hood - J. Leuer

02 Feb 2018 13:46:05
This is a ridiculous return for CJ. If Neil said yes to this, he should be fired immediately.

02 Feb 2018 17:19:05
I agree Portland needs more.

02 Feb 2018 18:13:39
Stanley Johnson for Hood is undervalue for Utah as well.

05 Feb 2018 02:18:37
This trade is off. Cj and Hood has more value. As a Piston fan I’ll take this. But if I’m Portland or Utah I’ll hang up.

02 Feb 2018 05:48:12
Pels final move for now and next season

Pels - Joe Johnson, Rodney Hood

Jazz - Solomon Hill, Cheik Diallo, Future Lottery Protected first

Jazz get a defensive SF in Hill to team alongside Gobert to help the offensive Mitchell, gain developmental piece in Diallo and 1st round pick

Pels clear Hill’s contract by getting Joe Johnson’s expiring deal giving them more FA cash to spend to build a better team around AD and Cousins (if he resigns) Hood wasn’t part of the future plans with the Jazz but he would slide it beautifully alongside Boogie, AD, Jrue and Niko

Pels lineup

PG - Holiday - Rondo
SG - Moore - Jackson
SF - Hood - Miller
PF - Davis - Mirotic
C - Cousins - FA

Resign Rondo to a 2 yr contract to come off the bench and keep Boogie happy/ Quiet (for most part lol)

Then fill in rest of roster with their 2nd round pick and FA’s

If they could find a way to get Hood realistically they could develop into a really good lineup.

02 Feb 2018 06:28:16
Hood is averaging almost 17 pts a game with similar defensive numbers as Hill. Hill is cheaper because Hood is going to get 15-20 mil in the off season. Not sure NOP can afford him. It's a good trade if Hill is the same guy as he was before the injury. 2019 1st would work in NOP's favor.

02 Feb 2018 17:28:09
NO is worried about signing boogie and staying under the luxury tax, hood doesn't help that plan.

01 Feb 2018 21:26:04
Cavs - J. Johnson

Jazz - Iman Shumpert

01 Feb 2018 22:13:15
Not a chance without a pick.

02 Feb 2018 00:36:47
Shum will opt out. but Utah can use him.

02 Feb 2018 02:13:35
Isn't Shumpert 27? Why would he leave the last double digit in millions earning season of his career on the table? I'd take it, and not feel bad. ATL, or DAL, or CHI, or PHX can afford to buy out. UTA not so much.

01 Feb 2018 21:25:22
Bucks - R. Hood

Jazz - J. Parker


01 Feb 2018 22:00:00
I like Hood for bucks but Parker is worth more.

01 Feb 2018 22:23:37
Jazz can get more out of Hood. Parker can leave. Bucks have a good team, and some leverage to keep Parker if he returns, and stays healthy. This is unlikely in my opinion.

01 Feb 2018 22:32:33
I like this one for both teams.

01 Feb 2018 22:44:51
Love this trade

I think Bucks will ask a little more for parker even with the injuries.

01 Feb 2018 23:47:59
Just a fyi. Parker was offered a 3yr 54 Mil. contract. He turned it down. He wants a "Max" contract he stated! I for one don't believe he's earned one. In 3 years, He's had 2 surgeries. Both on the same knee. He hasn't played a full season in those 3 years. I would package him, Henson, Vaughn, and a pick to the Clippers for Center D. Jordan, and SF S. Dekker Which Milwaukee can use more than R. Hood. Then Sign A. Bogut and put Maker back to Backup PF.

04 Feb 2018 03:39:11
Embiid got a max deal with playing maybe a quarter of what Parker has played. That being said he will get a max deal or close to it, especially if he stays healthy to the end. Bucks need his dominant scoring. Giannis is great all around but Parker can do it all on offensive side. Don’t see him getting traded unless they can get an all around player in return. Jordan is not worth $24mill to small market team. Other options are out there for rebounding and defense. Hernangomez in my opinion is best option to make a trade for. Young with huge upside. He put up solid numbers as a rookie. Won’t take much to get him and if it doesn’t work out it doesn’t cost you $24 million. You can still sign Bogut for 15 min a game cheap.

01 Feb 2018 16:24:28
Utah-Minnesota trade

Utah gets-Cole Aldrich, Shabazz Muhammad

Minnesota gets- Joe Johnson

01 Feb 2018 16:42:10
Johnson would help a lot in MIN. He still has game. Crawford could use the help in the second unit.

01 Feb 2018 15:56:38

Bulls send:

- Nikola Mirotic
- Denzel Valentine
- Paul Zipser

Jazz send:

- Rodney Hood
- Alec Burks
- Tony Bradley

- I think this is good for the Bulls because they get young players that can contribute to the future. I believe that Rodney Hood next to Zach LaVine would thrive in Fred Hoiberg's fast pace offense. Furthermore, Alec Burks could be a nice role player from the bench. Also, Tony Bradley is an intriguing, young big that has the potential to contribute for Chicago.

- I think the Jazz should do this because they not only get the perfect playmate for Gobert (Mirotic), but they also improve their shooting (Mirotic and Valentine) . Mirotic will thrive next to Gobert. Also, since Valentine is a better shooter than Burks, the Utah bench will become much more dangerous this season and next (once Dante Exum returns) . Paul Zipser is thrown in to balance the rosters out.

Leave comments below please.

01 Feb 2018 16:43:53
Jazz are giving up too much with Burks being involved. Especially if J. Johnson is headed out.

31 Jan 2018 10:40:22

CLE get: Derrick Favors (exp) and Alec Burks

Pg. Thomas
Sg. Wade
Sf. James
Pf. Crowder
C. Favors (Love)

DET get: Rodney Hood (exp), Ricky Rubio, & Jose Calderon (exp)

Pg. Rubio
Sg. Hood
Sf. Leuer
Pf. Griffin
C. Drummond

UTAH get: Channing Frye (exp), Iman Shumpert, Reggie Jackson, and 2018 1st CLE

Pg. Jackson
Sg. Mitchell
Sf. Ingles
Pf. Jerebko
C. Gobert

31 Jan 2018 11:56:57
Why would Utah, which is just 3 games out of the playoffs, give up two starters and two other rotation players for a low first-round pick?

31 Jan 2018 15:11:44
Jazz need the Brooklyn pick to do something like that. Cut out the Pistons, they're dumping Jackson for nothing.

31 Jan 2018 05:48:15
Pels - Joe Johnson, Derrick Favors

Jazz - Omir Asik (Stretch next season), Solomon Hill, Cheik Diallo, 2018 top 5 protected, future protected 1st

Pels add help for this season while clearing cap room with 2 expiring deals.
