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 00:23:57

CHI gets CP3 and Diallo
Sign Holiday

OKC gets Porter, Lee, Kriss Dunn, CHI 2nd rd pick 2020

DAL gets Schroeder

CP3/ White
Lavine/ Diallo
Holiday/ Hutchinson
Lauri/ Young
Carter/ Felicio

Shai/ Dunn
Roberson/ Lee
Porter/ Ferguson
Gallo/ Patterson
Adams/ Noel


13 Jul 2019 16:06:44
Would Dallas be interested in this?

Dallas get Paul, 2020 Chicago 2nd

Okc gets Hardaway, Lee, Brunson

I like it for okc. I could see it being a nice move for Dallas as well.

13 Jul 2019 16:30:10
Absolutely Dallas would be for this, but doesn't mean it's a good move. Dallas is always looking for a quick fix, which is why before doncic, they hadn't had any young talent in over 15 years. This could set dallas back 10 years if it fails, but I still see Cuban jumping on it for the chance to contend.

13 Jul 2019 18:41:43
I like this trade. Paul would make porzingis much better and they get an asset for the future.

13 Jul 2019 20:30:35
Taking the ball out of Doncic's hands. what could go wrong?

13 Jul 2019 22:05:15
Fredman who creates when luka rests?

13 Jul 2019 23:10:59
So Paul coming off the bench?

You are running into the same issue that existed in Houston. Team runs better with the ball in Harden (Doncic) hands but Paul will want touches. Paul, much like Anthony, has to learn they need to take a step back. Just not convinved that Paul is ready to accept a lesser role.

13 Jul 2019 10:24:51
Thunder get Jackson, Winslow, Olynyk, 2022 Detroit 1st
***Buyout Jackson. Last time he played in okc, it didn't end well. Putting him back on the market would be mutually Beneficial. Saves the necessary tax dollars plus extra. Reggie could be a good pickup for a contender. Winslow and Olynyk are fine for this rebuild. The pick seals it.

Detroit gets Dragic, 2020 Chicago 2nd via okc
***Big upgrade at point. No future extra money as Dragic is also expiring. Could also play next to Rose. Going for it in the East. Little shakeup.

Miami gets Paul, 2020 Detroit 1st
***Rumored for Paul, and they add a first. Gives them an upgrade at point if He stays healthy.


13 Jul 2019 14:43:52
So Detroit is giving up 2 first rounders for. Dragic? Come on, really?

13 Jul 2019 15:16:52
Jackson and TWO 1st rod picks for Dragic and a second rounder? Think Detroit is getting screwed here. Hard pass from Pistons.

14 Jul 2019 03:54:14
Detroit won’t give up firsts for Dragic. Maybe a second.

13 Jul 2019 09:11:23
Bulls trade hornets

Hornets get felicio, dunn and carter jr

Bulls get cody zeller and 2 2nd round picks

13 Jul 2019 09:16:52
Horrible for the Bulls.

12 Jul 2019 18:29:58
Is it safe to say OKC is having a fire sale? If so, Gallinari, Schroder, Adams, and CP must go... .not to mention, in ideal landing spots for them as long as a pick is obtainable..

OKC receive a pick and C. Parson
Atl receive Adams


That looks like a wrecking squad in 2-3 years. Parsons may even agree to a buyout. And if not, he comes off the books after the year.

Bulls receive Schroder
OKC receive Felicio and Dunn

No picks but quality back up and potential starter in Felicio.

Blazers receive Gallinari
OKC receive Bazemore and a 1st.

Blazers need a stretch 4 to open the floor for Whiteside/Nurkic and take some of the scoring load at times

As for CP3, there are no contenders in need of a point guard. Best situation:

Magic receive: CP3, pick
OKC receive: Fournier, Bamba, Fultz

Magic get a wonderful facilitator with complementary pieces....

Not to mention, OKC reset financially with some building blocks in Bamba, Felicio, and SGA with Fultz being a ?....

12 Jul 2019 21:36:08
Presti wins gm of the year if he trades russ and cp3 in same month. Lol.

12 Jul 2019 06:01:37

OKC get Porter Jr, Felicio, 2023 and 2025 1st round picks
CHI Paul and 2 future 2nd round picks

OKC add picks for their rebuild and to do it they take Felicio who CHI has been trying to get rid of and they take Porter Jr who doesn't have a great contract either. The reson OKC gets 2 1sts instead of 1 is because even though they do get out of Pauls contract they are taking back bad contracts and giving up 2 2nds to even ot out.

CHI gets rid of Felicio and get a good PG to pair with The young core of White, Lavine, Markkanen, & WCjr. That team in the East could sneak in the playoffs at that 7 or 8 spot. And Paul could be a good Mentor for White. They get 2 2nds to even it out a lil.

12 Jul 2019 11:18:38
The firsts are going the wrong way.

11 Jul 2019 21:30:41
Bulls trade rockets

Rockets get felicio,carter jr, and dunn

Bulls get capela

11 Jul 2019 22:37:45
Why would the bulls give up carter jr to get and older player?

11 Jul 2019 20:14:00
Bulls - Rockets - Thunder

Bulls gets:
Patterson (expiring)
2020 1st Rockets (lottery protected)

Rockets gets:
Porter Jr.

Thunder gets:
Gordon (expiring)
2022 1st Rockets (unprotected)
2023 swap rights Rockets
2024 1st Rockets (top 10 protected)

Bulls take on Paul to mentor White and gets a first for the contract.

Rockets go all-in and have a starting 5 in Russ/Harden/Porter Jr/Tucker/Capela.

Thunder save money and get picks for the future.

11 Jul 2019 22:30:42
I doubt the Bulls would touch Chris Paul, but if they would they would need more than 1 late first.

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.

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 14:13:31
If the Thunder wait til December, this is my dream deal for Russ. Before I start, no one would've said predicted the haul Presti got for George. So.

Atlanta gets Randle, Portis
***Randle could start at the 5 and give them a very complete lineup. Both are two year deals. Fits their timeline. Could see them make noise in the playoffs.

Knicks get Russel Westbrook, Patterson, Chicago 2020 2nd via Okc
***Russ in New York just seems like a match made in heaven. Plus, imagine the crosstown rivalry games vs the nets when KD comes back?

Thunder get Parsons, RJ Barrett, 2020 1st, 2021 1st (Dallas), 2023 1st (Dallas)
***Parsons expires with about $25M. Barrett and Shai could be great down the road. Add in all the picks, and they have the best treasure trove of assets in the entire league.

10 Jul 2019 14:40:45
Atlanta doesn't have the $10 mil avalable cap space to take on Randle + Portis new salaries. $35 mil vs. $25 mil for chandler.

10 Jul 2019 14:52:55
I would have predicted the haul they got for Paul George. He's a great player that can play with others, is a great defender, and is incredible versatile. All the things Westbrook isn't.

Also, Westbrook being locked in long term isn't great, for George it was a huge positive.

All that said, if anyone is going to massively overpay for Westbrook, it's the Knicks.

10 Jul 2019 17:17:37
Why does everyone keep bragging about what okc got? They got sga and some late first round picks that more than likely will amount to nothing. Okc could have prob got more. Clippers had to get George or Kawhi wasnt coming.

10 Jul 2019 17:30:02
The two Miami picks aren't guaranteed to be late. The Clippers picks at the end are after the George and Leonard contracts end, so who knows how good the Clippers will be. Look at how quickly teams fall apart.

Also, future firsts just have value. A couple years out firsts without protections are incredibly valuable.

10 Jul 2019 18:47:59
Best example of late picks. the Nets picks that Boston got for Pierce and Garnett.

09 Jul 2019 23:38:35
3 team trade OKC, BOS, CHI

OKC Hayward, Felicio, Brown, 2020 memphis 1st via BOS, 2020 CHI 1st

BOS Lavine, Roberson, Dunn, 2021 2nd via CHI

CHI Westbrook

OKC takes on the Hayward and Felicio contract, but get a young talented player in Brown and 2 1st round picks for next years draft. This seems like a decent rebuild package. They then have SGA, Brown, Diallo, Ferguson, Burton, Bazley as a young group and a bunch of picks obviously they would still make more rebuilding type trades involving Adams, Gallinari, and their other pieces, but this gives them a good start.

BOS gets Lavine who is on a good contract and has all star potential almost an all star this year. He would be a good scorer along side Walker & Tatum. Roberson is expiring and would give them defense. Dunns contract has a team option so they can drop him after this season to save money next season and he gives them better PG depth this season. They get out of the Hayward contract and they save a lil money this year. If they don't pick up the Dunn option counting the savings from Haywards contract and expiring Roberson & Dunn with this trade they open about 20mil in cap space next year plus whatever other expiring deals they have so they can add another good player to Walker, Lavine, & Tatum.

CHI gets out of Dunn and Felicio 2 players they don't want. They get Russ who will sell tickets and makes them relevent again relevent does not mean contenders i'm not saying they will win the finals by relevent i mean people will watch them and pay attention to them more again. Along side their young core with Russ they could possibly at least make the playoffs.

09 Jul 2019 23:50:20
Boston is not going to give up Brown, Hayward and the Memphis pick for basically Lavine. With Walker and Tatum getting their shots, Lavine would go from 23 a game down to about 15. They already have that in either Brown or Hayward.

10 Jul 2019 00:44:02
Heyward for Westbrook straight up.

09 Jul 2019 12:22:45
Okc gets Biyombo, Williams, Minny 2020 first, Charlotte 2020 first, Charlotte 2022 first

Hornets get Russ, Wiggins

Minnesota gets Batum, 2020 Chicago 2nd via OKC

Okc gets expiring money next summer, cut ~$6M now which ducks them under the luxury, and add 3 firsts. Bring on the rebuild.

Hornets go for a big splash. They take on major money moving forward to bring some relevance to the team after losing Kemba. The Rozier/Westbrook backcourt might work out.

Minnesota trims two years of salary by taking on Batum who could be a better fit anyways. Lose a first. Might be worth it.


09 Jul 2019 14:05:36
Minnesota shouldn't give up a 1st to swap Wiggins for Batum.

09 Jul 2019 02:30:58
Miami/Oklahoma/Chicago deal

To Mia/ Russell Westbrook

star of a new era in Miami with 2 stars (Westbrook + Butler), they still have young guys like Herro and Adebayo to develop


To Oklahoma/ Justise Winslow, Kris Dunn, Christiano Felicio 1st round pick Heat (2025), 2 2nd round picks (MIA & CHI)

With Westbrook wanting out and eyeing Miami, this could be a good package given the amount of his contract. Although Thunder would not want to help the Heat, limited offers will be on the table so they might take it.


To Chicago/ Goran Dragic

Dragic could start for a year giving a veteran leader and mentor to White. They could actually compete for a playoff spot if they stay healthy


09 Jul 2019 03:49:16
Failed ESPN trade machine. Chicago taking on too much salary since they are over the salary cap.

09 Jul 2019 07:50:29
Bulls might include Valentine to match salaries? giving him to Thunder.

09 Jul 2019 01:44:09

The only one I can see happening is the Bulls but that would require White just being garbage.

06 Jul 2019 23:47:53
Why in the world would Toronto give up Siakim and Ibaka.

07 Jul 2019 00:27:17
Magic might do that if fultz looks good at 2 and issac improves.
