The Clippers the 15th overall and the Wizards 19 1st

The Wizards get the 12th

The Wizards are heavy on wings and guards, but need a center to replace Gortat. They trade up to get Robert Williams. He's really the only center that will be available and worth taking between 10 and 20.

If the Clippers are blowing it up, they can really take anyone and given the fact that they own the 13th, they're essentially only moving back 2 spots and adding a pick would be a win for them. If they're trying to build around their current roster, they don't need a center. That means they're only losing one viable prospect by moving back and there are a ton of guards and wings at that part of the draft.

20 Apr 2018 00:53:04
Or, the Wizards could trade down and dump some salary (they will be in the luxury tax next year) to get a center in the 20s.

20 Apr 2018 13:16:18
What are the chances that you're getting your future starting center at 20? Also, they can probably get off of some of their smaller contracts for that move, but I don't see that being enough to get off of Mahimi. That's really the only movable player they have that would get them out of the luxury. Imo, they should make a move that is going to help them take the next step.

20 Apr 2018 19:00:59
@rk ilgauskas was the 20th pick in 1996 lmao. but yeah, that being the only example it is a longshot.

17 Apr 2018 22:13:48
I Like the magic trade.

17 Apr 2018 22:28:48
I don't agree with a few of the scenarios but i definitely respect the depth of thought involved

In the scenario with the Pels it just would not work out when Boogie re-signs. It would leave Darius Miller as your only true SF and would not give them the cap room to sign a decent SF in FA. Pels have to continue growth or risk losing AD

Of all the scenarios i see Houston as most likely maybe Memphis second most.

17 Apr 2018 22:54:08
Maybe Minnesota for Dieng?

18 Apr 2018 00:22:09
10) Minnesota receives Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Grogui Deng and Pick 48 and future second due to his contract being one year longer than plumlees

Pros Wolves gain 2-5 mill over the next four years
Pros Hawks gain draft picks.

16 Apr 2018 19:27:09

14 Apr 2018 22:16:07
In what galaxy is Tyson Chandler worth that?

04 Apr 2018 12:21:27

Pacers, Wizards, Bucks, and Heat

West lockup teams: Rockets, Warriors and Blazers
Its up to these 7 teams fighting for 5 spots left:

06 Apr 2018 00:54:19
Thanks, Captain Obvious.

03 Apr 2018 03:01:02

WSH get Hassan Whiteside

MIA get Marcin Gortat, Kelly Oubre & 1st round pick

03 Apr 2018 05:00:21
I like this for WSH, I think for salary matching purposes they need to include Jason Smith.

03 Apr 2018 06:43:47
Whiteside makes $25 mil next year, and $27 mil the year after that.

I'm not sure he has positive trade value, or that it would take both Oubre and a pick to move Gortat. Maybe Mahinmi?

03 Apr 2018 09:30:28
Comme on Whiteside is a great defender. The only reason the Heat would trade him, is because they need to give Adebayo playing time.
It's a good trade for bothe teams.
It makes Washinton better, so they can aim for the title and the Heat get assets for a rebuilt.

03 Apr 2018 13:39:07
Nope gasupo that is just wrong. He was a great defender. And he got a big contract. And now he has little to no value. His team is far better offensively when he’s off the court. And the teams metrics are essentially the same on defense when he is on versus off. For a guy sucking up a quarter of the teams cap, this is horrible.

For a guy sucking up a minimum contract this is pretty bad.

Stop analyzing his performance based on 2016. He had to earn a contract. He did. And like Wally szerbiak. He is a complete waste of space after getting paid. Awesome.

03 Apr 2018 18:01:06
He scoring 14,1 points, 11,7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in only 25.6 minutes.

03 Apr 2018 19:01:39
Love the Wally reference. Spot on.

03 Apr 2018 21:32:05
Whiteside is a lot like Love. People got way too high on him, now they’re way too low on him.

Whiteside was never a top 3 center. He was never an all nba defender. But he is an elite rebounder, solid (but raw) offensive player, and a playmaker on defense (even if his great plays are followed by mistakes) . He is a third option on an elite team, nothing more nothing less.

04 Apr 2018 03:56:02
On defense, Whiteside can't switch or come out to defend the new batch of three-point shooting centers, he is really poor on offense. He is not the type of center that the NBA is moving towards, and he's getting paid $25 and $27 mil. Oh, and he was drafted low because of personality risks, and we continue to see those even today.

I think he's getting over-valued in this trade.

26 Mar 2018 11:05:48
Was: Leonard+ P Mills

Indy: Oubre

Spurs: Porter+ Leaf+ 1rnd pick Was

26 Mar 2018 23:37:14
I like Porter, but he, a seldom used Rookie and a mid-round first is not close to enough for Leonard.

27 Mar 2018 06:32:34
Why is Indy involved here? If I was the Spurs I'd take Oubre over Leaf any day of the week.

27 Mar 2018 09:30:45

Because SA can use a young big and they already get Porter to play SF.

24 Mar 2018 18:00:32
T Wolves - Wizards

TW get: Wall, Morris

W get: Teague, Dieng, Patton, OKC 1st, 2019 or 2020 TW 1st



24 Mar 2018 18:19:24
the wolves would never get this deal across with wall without giving up their super stars, Wall is a top 3 PG in the east when healthy this is a horrible trade for the wizards.

24 Mar 2018 21:22:59
If you find a 3rd team and wiggens.

25 Mar 2018 18:43:58
Wiggins would have to be involved in any deal for a star to minny.

29 Mar 2018 22:26:57
If you still look at Patton (last year's #16 pick) as a 1st, that's three first rounders. And while Gorgui is overpaid, he could start for the Wizards right now, and he would certainly fill a need next year, as Gortat ages out. Dieng was #62 in RPM for the whole NBA last year as a starter. He has been worse this year as a back up, but if he is on a team that starts him, I think his contract looks a lot better. Finally, Dunc'd On recently ranked PG's, and I believe Wall came in about 8th, and Teague was 11-14.

I have always liked John Wall, but the PG position is rich in talent, he is a star - not a superstar, will be paid a lot, and is coming off an injury. With Morris included, I don't think this is so bad for WAS, and I would in fact remove one of those 1st rounders and still do the deal.

How close would Wall + Mahinmi for Teague and Dieng be? One 1st away?

15 Mar 2018 14:25:29
Charlotte gets Wiggins

Washington gets Walker, Batum and the Spur's 2019 1st lottery protected

Minnesota gets Gasol and Wall

San Antonio gets Teague

15 Mar 2018 15:03:37
I like my odds with Murray, and Keeping my 2019 pick over acquiring Teague if I was SA decision maker.

15 Mar 2018 16:54:02
@ jorgawood, Agreed, I'd also keep Murray and the pick.

15 Mar 2018 17:10:25
They don't trade Murray here. It's next year's pick and Gasol (who's not worth his contract at this point) for a point guard who can actually create for himself and other players. Murray at this point really doesn't provide a ton on offense, Parker is about done and the only other person who can go out and create shots off the dribble is Leonard.

I think the trade could be done without San Antonio though, but at some point Teague would have to be moved for Minnesota. I was just trying to figure out a landing spot for him to clean up what I thought might be the biggest hang up. How do you feel about the basic structure of the deal between the Wolves, Hornets, and Wizards?

15 Mar 2018 18:16:55
It wasn't my intention to suggest Murray was involved, but that the position is covered already, and the pick are of more use, and value to the Spurs than Teague.

16 Mar 2018 13:27:12
I think San Antonio would rather play Murray/ Mills at the point instead of absorbing Teague's salary.

17 Mar 2018 14:34:58
So Washington downgrades to a lesser point who isn't signed long term while eating Batum's deal?

06 Mar 2018 08:40:31
Pacers: Mahinmi+ Deng+Oubre+Ball

Was: Jefferson+ 2rnd pick Indy

LA:1rnd pick Was+ 1rnd pick Indy

C: Sabonis/Mahinmi
PF: Turner/Leaf
SF: Oubre/Bogdanovic
Sg:Oladipo/ L Stephenson
PG: Ball/D collison

06 Mar 2018 01:46:21

Washington: M.Conley, H.Whiteside

Memphis: G.Dragic, M.Gortat, 1st round pick Was, future 1st round pick Miami

Miami: J.Wall, C.Parsons

05 Mar 2018 21:00:56
NY: K Leonard+ J Wall

Was: Porzingis+ Noah+Mudiay

Spurs: Hardaway+ Oubre+ Ntilikina+1rnd pick NY+ 1rnd pick Was+ 1rnd pick NY2020

NY signs D cousins, so he can form a big three with Leonard and Wall

05 Mar 2018 22:39:50
Knicks move out less salary than they take in, how do they have the budget for DMC.

Also, terrible for Washington.

05 Mar 2018 23:03:24
Was says no. They take Noah and give up Wall, Oubre and a first for a player with a torn ACL?!

05 Mar 2018 09:03:56
Bulls: Mahinmi+ Oubre

Was: R Lopez

05 Mar 2018 12:58:36
Getting rid of Mahinmi isn't worth giving up Kelly if the return is only RoLo.

05 Mar 2018 13:52:39
Rollo is on a shorter contract.
They could give up a first round pick, if they want ot keep Oubre.

But they already have Porter and Beal, so i'm not sure they want to give Oubre a big contract in 2019. trading oubre and Mahinmi, gives them some flexibility to sign free agents in 2019 and staying under the cap.

28 Feb 2018 23:49:48

Lakers get K.Leonard

Wizards get L.Ball, P.Mills, I.Zubac, Lakers future 1st rd pick

Spurs get J.Wall, B.Ingram

01 Mar 2018 00:11:36
Wiz take a huge hit in that one.

28 Feb 2018 23:27:12
Pacers Offseason

-waive C Al Jefferson, PF Alex Pothyress, SG Trey McKinney-Jones
-use team options on Lance Stephenson, F/C Domantas Sabonis, PG Joseph Young
-PG Cory Joseph and PF Thaddeus Young exercise their player options

20th Pick - SG Hamidou Diallo
52nd Pick - C Nick Richards

Trade (Indiana - Washington)

Pacers receive SF Kelly Oubre Jr, C Ian Mahinmi, 2019 top 10 protected 1st round pick

Wizards receive PF Thaddeus Young, C Ike Anigbogu, 2020 41-50 protected 2nd round pick

Free Agency:
-let Glenn Robinson III walk
-re-sign Trevor Booker 1 year, vets minimum
-Sign DeAndre Jordan 3 year, $60M (team option for 4th year)

PG: Collison, Joseph, Young
SG: Oladipo, Stephenson, Diallo
SF: Bogdanovic, Oubre Jr
PF: Turner, Sabonis, Booker
C: Jordan, Mahinmi, Leaf, Richards

01 Mar 2018 08:11:08
Why would Jordan take a lesser contract?
He's getting 24M next year.
And Sabonis can play PF, but he's a center, so i don't think indy should try to sign him.

I like taking Mahinmi's contract for getting Oubre and a draft pick.

01 Mar 2018 21:39:40
I like you're scenario but Jordan will want more money and Nick Richards will not fall to 52. Otherwise the scenario is realistic to me.

27 Feb 2018 14:17:59

1. 2018 NBA Draft

b. WAS-CHI Trade

WAS receives: 7th pick (projected)

-WAS needs another "good" player in their starting 5, primarily a rim protector

CHI receives: rights to the 14th overall pick (projected), rights to the 21st overall pick (projected, Marcin Gortat

-Gortat is not on an absolutely horrible contract and he can be a good mentor for Lauri Markannen

5-Mohamad Bamba/Jason Smith

-Great starting Lineup
-Nice 3 point sooting second unit
-can run a ton of lineups with this team

27 Feb 2018 14:38:18
Why in the world would chicago give up the best asset in this trade for a mentor when they have ROLO to do that now. Makes 0 sense for Chicago.

27 Feb 2018 15:15:41
The 14th and the 21st aren't going to get you the 7th pick in a draft that has elite talent to atleast the 7th spot if not the 8th or 9th. Also, I think worse case scenario for Bamba is probably fifth. I think Doncic and Ayton go before him for sure and maybe Bagley or Porter Jr. I suppose someone could fal in love with Jackson or Young, but it would take a small miracle for him to be available at 7.

27 Feb 2018 15:59:08
I agree that the Bulls shouldn't swing that deal. They already have enough young assets that they don't need two more good ones, they should go for one elite one.

With that being the case, you don't move Oubre for 14, he's better than what you're going to get at that spot.

27 Feb 2018 17:53:16
ROLO is not similar to Lauri at all. They are totally different. Marcin Gortat is a true vet, knows what's it's like to be an international player and can connect with Lauri. ROLO doesn't play defense and is clueless.

27 Feb 2018 18:28:14
@godfather also the Bulls want to fill their roster with young guys not just another hit or miss player. The more young guys they have, the easier the rebuild with be. Also ROLO and Marcin are expiring deals and will be easy to deal for more assets at next years deadline.

27 Feb 2018 19:03:55
Tostito, Gortat plays nothing like Markannen either.

27 Feb 2018 19:08:27
Gortat is no similar to Lauri what so ever either. Lauri plays great away from the basket where as Gortat can't do anything with the ball outside the paint. Plus it would be stupid for the Bulls to add another big man to their already crowded rotation with Portis, Markkanen, Vonleh, Lopez, Asik, and Felcio all under contract next season as well.

26 Feb 2018 13:25:52
Detroit: J Wall

Was: Walker+Drummond

Charlotte: R Jackson+S Johnson+ Oubre+ 1rnd pick Was+ 1rnd pick Detroit

26 Feb 2018 19:53:01
idk if the wizards get 2 allstars back for wall and idk if the pisons give up that much for him.
