14 Jul 2019 22:06:49

BOS gets Love,

CLE gets Hayward, Milsap

DEN gets CLE 20201st rd, Clarkson, Henson, Osman

Kemba/ Smart
Brown/ Iggy
Tatum/ Langford
Kanter/ Theis
Love/ Williams

Sexton/ Garland
KPJ/ Nwaba
Hayward/ Stauskas
Milsap/ Nance
Thompson/ Zizic

Murray/ / Morris
Harris/ Clarkson
Barton/ Beasley
Grant/ Cedi/ Plumlee
Jokic/ Hernagomez/ Bol Bol.

15 Jul 2019 00:07:31
Love is the best player in this trade, Cedi is a solid young guy, and the Cavs are giving up a top 5 pick for a guy who was bad last year and an over the hill Millsap.

15 Jul 2019 01:47:10
Love may be the best player in the deal, but he only played 22 games last season and has missed at least 20 games the past 3 seasons.
So, that needs to be taken into account.
I'm not sure this is the right deal, but Love would be a great replacement for Horford, if he can stay on the court.

15 Jul 2019 09:26:22
Joe, sure, but the Cavs aren’t trading Love unless they can get value. That’s been reported since December. They’re definitely not giving up picks or you players to move him. It’s not like capspace is a big deal for them.

15 Jul 2019 12:39:27
Then the Cavs should keep him and his huge salary and let him miss 30 plus games while they miss the playoffs. Yup. that's the ticket.

14 Jul 2019 15:08:44
It can't happen yet, but once Kemba is trade eligible Dec.15th I believe and once Ben Simmons signs his extension, does a straight swap not seem to make sense?

Simmons fits the Celtics timeline better and he helps a team whose lineup lacks size. Kemba brings a big time outside scoring threat to a team in win now mode.

14 Jul 2019 16:17:50
Simmons lack of shooting does not fit Boston. or a lot of teams.

14 Jul 2019 16:21:05
Also straight swap is not possible until next year when Simmons is playing on his increased salary extension. Right now there is around $20 mil salary difference.

14 Jul 2019 14:42:36
Thunder get Hayward, Milwaukee 2020 1st (Boston)

Boston gets Lee, Hardaway Jr., 2020 Chicago 2nd (Okc)

Dallas gets Paul

Thunder shave salary to get under luxury. Hayward can still play but fits this team better than Paul.

Boston gets a two for one on wings. Lee is expiring which will help with future payroll.

Paul could be a great mentor for Doncic in Dallas. He's a veteran presence that could do them good and push them into playoffs.

14 Jul 2019 15:03:11
Why would Boston want more wings?

14 Jul 2019 16:32:27
It’s not so much about the positional fit honestly. Hayward eats into the payroll quite a bit. At season’s end, they need to pay Jaylen Brown and plan towards paying Tatum. Hardaway can provide a similar scoring touch the next two seasons and then opens cap for Tatum. Lee can be a three and D guy this year and open up some cash for Brown next summer. With Kemba on board, they need to plan carefully. Horford was a bit of a sacrifice already.

14 Jul 2019 16:33:40
Okc turns a disgruntled Russ who’d be crippling to the cap in a few years into Hayward, three 1sts, 2 swaps. Wow!

14 Jul 2019 18:07:48
Paul has the 3rd worse contract in the league. No one is giving assets up for him. Best case scenario, you can trade him for some smaller bad contracts.

14 Jul 2019 05:23:48
Heyward to Cavs and love to Boston. Plus Cavs can swap their own pick with the Memphis one via Boston.

14 Jul 2019 14:25:44
This make sense.

14 Jul 2019 18:09:55
It makes no sense for the Cavs. The just swap Love for a worse player. The Memphis pick is protected and the Cavs are almost guaranteed to be in the bottom 5 this year.

13 Jul 2019 00:27:11

OKC Hayward, 2020 MEM 1st, 2024 BOS 1st
BOS Adams, 1 or 2 future 2nds.

OKC have trade exceptions from Melo, George, and Grant so they use one of those and take Hayward so they can add 2 1sts to their collection of picks. This does add more money to their luxury tax bill, but they still have Paul, Gallo, Schroder, Roberson that they can move to get under the luxury tax.

BOS gets out of Hayward contract and save money this year while doing it. They get Adams which will solidify their bigman depth and would be a good fit for their starting 5. They swap 2 1sts for 1 or 2 2nds to make Thunder willing to take Hayward.

13 Jul 2019 04:09:16
Too much for Adams.

12 Jul 2019 19:54:34
Pacers - Crowder
Grizzlies - McDermott Leaf and 2

Pacers - Langford and G.Williams
Celtics - Sabonis




12 Jul 2019 20:10:11
And Pacers do that deal with Boston why?

13 Jul 2019 01:52:19
No way pacers make that trade with Celtics.

12 Jul 2019 13:32:12
Boston gets Adams and Olynyk

OKC gets Hayward, Johnson, Waiters and Boston's 2020 1st lottery protected

Miami gets Paul

The Celtics get the bigs that they need and they get out of Hayward's contract.

OKC gets off Paul, gets a pick, sends Adams to a competitive team, and takes a chance on Hayward maybe getting closer to where he was giving him value that can be flipped.

Miami gets off some bad money and gets a good guard.

12 Jul 2019 15:07:18
Hayward is obviously hardly untouchable, but the Celtics are not going to move him. Brown is another issue. He can be had for the right price.

12 Jul 2019 05:06:06
Boston gets Dragic and Olynyk

Miami gets Paul

Okc gets Hayward
***Ducks luxury tax, get out of a longer deal. He also fits better than Paul.

Gilgeous-Alexander, Schröder
Ferguson, Diallo
Hayward, Roberson
Gallinari, Patterson/Muscala
Adams, Noel

12 Jul 2019 12:19:06
Hayward is trash and his contract is just one year shorter. So cut Boston out and send Dragic and Olynik to OKC. In addition OKC can take on more salary after 2019/ 2020 for additional picks.

12 Jul 2019 14:16:34
Miami has to add an addition $6 mil in salary because they currently only have $1 salary cap space under the hard cap.

11 Jul 2019 18:10:41

Warriors: Leaf (Need more bigs)

Pacers: Poole


Celtics: Mcdermott, 2 2nd’s

Pacers: Edwards


Bulls: Holiday, Sabonis, 2 1st’s

Pacers Markkanen


Brogdon/ Edwards
Oladipo/ Lamb/ Poole
Warren/ A. Johnson
Markkanen/ Bowen
Turner/ Goga

Legitimate contender in East.

11 Jul 2019 19:29:13
That's a hell no from Boston. They're thinking Edwards will fill that bench scoring PG role that Rozier was filling.

11 Jul 2019 22:32:32
Tue Bulls aren’t trading Markannen.

11 Jul 2019 13:48:14
here's a trade that will help both team. mostly raptors.

Raptors trade Ibaka and Powell.

to boston for hayward and first round pick.

Raptors get a scoring wing

boston gets a starting center and a defensive wing in Powell.

11 Jul 2019 09:34:08
GS-G Hayward+Langford+B simmons+ 1rnd pick Memphis

Philly: S Curry

Bostond: D Green

SF:G Hayward/McKinnie
SG:K Thompson/Langford

PG:S Curry

Sixth: J Brown

11 Jul 2019 09:37:35
Not good in the eyes if the Warriors trade those 2 especially Curry.

11 Jul 2019 10:01:20
Boston is giving up the most and getting the least? No chance.

11 Jul 2019 10:02:41
Seriously 1 first round. Even Paul George worth 5 first round picks. Gsw- don't take those player. Even they accept those player they will want at least 6 or 7 picks. Hayward is dead cap. 2 first for his contract. Simmons can't even shot jumper.

11 Jul 2019 10:55:59
And if you want Steph Curry you will need to give up Simmons Embiid and load of picks. Would Philly do that? I doubt because it will not make a lot of sense but that is the least the 2 time MVP and 3 time champion is worth. Sorry.

11 Jul 2019 10:58:40
Boston giving up to much? They need to trade Haywards big contract and they need a power forward. D Green is a passer, defender and he can shoot. He'w what Boston need.

11 Jul 2019 11:27:08
This is the rare trade that is bad for all three teams.

11 Jul 2019 12:04:21
How far over the luxury tax line would GSW be when Simmons extension kicks in?

11 Jul 2019 12:30:51
Good old JoeB, the biggest homer on the planet earth.

A bad contract, a middling prospect and one pick is the best package being given up in this deal?! Pretty sure GSW giving up an absolute Superstar and regular All-Star may trump the C’s “loss”.

11 Jul 2019 15:04:40
Really Triangle? There are far more homers of teams on this site than me.
Boston's mantra since the departures, is drafting and trading character guys who will keep the peace. They are not trading for Green, who is deemed to be a dirty player and causes problems at times.
The Xeltics.

11 Jul 2019 15:07:19
Boston is unquestionably giving up the least. How is that even a question? Three all stars are in this trade, none coming from Boston.

GS gives up Steph and Draymond for Simmons and a first? Plus they take Hayward's contract? That's just ridiculous.

11 Jul 2019 18:05:30
Maybe in a couple years. if they all SUCK.

10 Jul 2019 20:26:27
Miami gets Russ, Dre, Chicago 2020 2nd

Boston gets Dragic, Olynyk, Patterson

OKC gets Hayward, Winslow, Herro

SGA, Schröder
Herro, Diallo
Hayward, Ferguson, Nader
Gallinari, Winslow
Adams, Noel, Muscala

10 Jul 2019 20:46:43
Heat won't give up hero and justice.

11 Jul 2019 00:26:48
Boston doesn't want Olynyk back.

10 Jul 2019 20:04:07
If Raptors year it down at midseason

Twolves - Ibaka(exp)
Raptors - Wiggins 2020 1st and future 2nds

Magic - Lowry (exp)
Raptors - Fultz Aminu and Fournier

Celtics - Gasol (exp) and McCaw
Raptors - Hayward and both 2020 1sts (Bos and Mem)





10 Jul 2019 21:50:29
How is Aminu traded and in magic starting 5?

10 Jul 2019 23:44:13
Meant to put Isaac in the lineup not Aminu.

11 Jul 2019 10:07:21
The Memphis pick is off the table in any tradee offer, unless it's for a Superstar, which of course can't happen.

11 Jul 2019 12:34:05
Why would Toronto want Wiggins deal if they tear it down? Raps primed for major cap space next year, would want lesser quality players on expiring deals, decent prospects and picks if they are moving guys like Lowry.

13 Jul 2019 21:38:17
love the idea of having Wiggins for Ibaka.

if they do a straight swap Raptors would be a better team. not championship but playoff team with potential. then next year use siakim and Wiggins as there core with freddy and og.

09 Jul 2019 23:35:20
1) OKC-Orl

OKC: Isaac+Bamba+Fournier+Fultz+ 2rnd pick Orl 2021 and 2023


OKC:J Wall+ 1rnd pick Was

OKC:Hayward+ 1rnd pick Boston
OKC: Gallinari+ robertson

08 Jul 2019 05:33:47
Marc Gasol top 3 destinations

To Boston for Gordon Hayward and Romeo Langford

To San Antonio for Patty Mills, Marco Bellineli and Keldon Johnson

To Portland for Kent Bazemore, Zack Collins and Nassir Little

08 Jul 2019 06:15:13
That third trade is way too much. I don’t think I’d i close either of Little or (especially) Collins for Gasol. Also, what is Portland going to do with Nurkic, Whiteside, and Gasol?

08 Jul 2019 06:19:25
Cant see Toronto "helping" Boston, but I could see that Spurs deal happening if the salaries match. Any chance of sending Derozen back to Toronto?

08 Jul 2019 18:46:46
Spurs trade doesn't work.
Boston wouldn't do that trade, maybe a TD move if the need is there.
Don't think Portland would do it either.

07 Jul 2019 17:39:08
Celtics go for Westbrook.

Boston get:Westbrook
OKC get: Hayward, Yabusele + Bucks Pick 2020, Celtics Pick 2021 und 2 2nd Rounder.

Works for both Teams. Win-Win.

07 Jul 2019 17:46:20
Celtics aren't stupid.

07 Jul 2019 17:51:43
Why would Boston wants an aging Westbrook, when they already have Kemba?

07 Jul 2019 22:47:45
Aging westbrook would be their best player.

08 Jul 2019 00:18:32
Westbrook isn't a winner. In ayear he will be overpaid for his shooting numbers.

07 Jul 2019 06:37:36
Mid season shock

Lal: Russell Westbrook

Boston:kcp, green two future seconds

Okc Kyle kuzma swap to first they have left, Hayward, 1st rnd boston

Clear salary to fit deal sign vets korver and smith.

07 Jul 2019 10:09:45
#1 lakers homer maybe. No way lakers get Westbrook for kuzma pope and 2 2nd round pick.

07 Jul 2019 04:24:08
Miami Boston and OKC.
3 team trade.
Miami gets Gordon Hayward
Boston gets Russell
OkC gets Dragic and Johnson.

Miami gets another star type player to pair with butler.
Boston boosts their backcourt and goes for it all now.
OKC gets salary relief to rebuild. Plus they acquired all those picks from Clippers. They can do a full on rebuild.

07 Jul 2019 13:24:59
After what Boston went through with Irving, there's no way they'd make a move on Westbrook.

08 Jul 2019 20:41:00
And why does okc do this? Hard pass
