lakers 2021 first top 8 protected conveys unprotected in 2022
Lakers 2024 unprotected first
cleveland 2020 first (top 10 protected conveys 2021 and 2022 second rounders)
new orleans 2020 and 2022 unprotected firsts
3 second rounder from 2020 draft (washington, new orleans and milwaukee)
and washington 2022 second rounder

New orleans gets KAT and Gourgie dieng
Waive dieng, williams and jackson sign with crawford and melo

After the trade pelicans roster is the future

Kat, hayes, okafor
Zion, melli
Melo, İngram,
Holiday, reddick
Ball, crawford, walker

İ would invest 2024 first and second also if wolves do not accept the offer.

14 Oct 2019 09:28:40
Not bad. It feels like a lot, but that might be fairly close to what it would take.

14 Oct 2019 09:54:27
I would like this to happen.

That NO team would be awesome.

13 Oct 2019 12:01:35
Huge trades don't normally go down, but I wanted to see how this one would play out. Don't hate it for any of the teams.

Boston gets Knight, Nance, Sexton
***Knight is a gamble, but he's a big expiring deal. Opens things up to keep Brown next summer, or it allows Celtics to be a possible player in FA. Nance can fill the void they seem to be chasing at the 5. Sexton has potential and can be a great backup point.

Thunder get Thompson, Clarkson, Henson, Dellavadova
***All expiring players without giving up a pick to dump Paul. But I also like the fit at each position. Let's them chase a guy like Brown this summer or flip these at the deadline for a couple more assets.

Cavs get Paul, Hayward, Roberson, Williams, Ojeleye, Nader, Burton
***Love, Hayward, Paul all seemed to be labeled as available but almost untradeable. Why not put on one squad in the East? And honestly, they could be decent fits together. If health holds up, itd be interesting to see how they gel.

Paul, Garland, Burton
Roberson, Windler, Porter
Hayward, Osman, Nader
Love, Ojeleye
Zizic, Williams

Can fill out front court with vet minimums.

13 Oct 2019 13:44:27
Ur not getting out of cp3 contract that easily.

13 Oct 2019 14:29:24
Zizic is bad. No way can he start. Also, the Cavs giving up expirings and positive assets to get back two bad contracts without any compensation for them, probably isn’t the way that they should go.

13 Oct 2019 05:00:11



Tyler Johnson, Baynes, Saric, 2020 1st rd pick top 10 protected until 2021 then turns into 2 2nds if not conveyed.

Love gives PHX a much needed veteran presence to guide their young core.

Cleveland gets a young player in Saric, gets out of Love's 4 year contract, expiring contracts and a
pick. Basically everything they've asked for.

13 Oct 2019 11:29:33
Saric and a 1st may be a good fit for CAVS.

13 Oct 2019 14:30:46
Not bad, but I think the Cavs would need a 1st that will actually convey at some point rather than what’s almost guaranteed to be 2 2nds.

15 Oct 2019 01:35:19
Wont work as Love can rune the floor with the team PHEONIX would have around him. Also Love and Ayton would not work together on the floor and your not trading to have Love as a bench player.

12 Oct 2019 23:30:30
A lot of possible trade to discuss, basically I would like to keep THJ. He may fit great as a starting Guard that get open looks and focus on defense. But his contract gives volume to trade.

I think that one has a chance!

Miami: C.Paul, K.Love, Burton, Nadar, 1st back via OKC

Cavs: J.Jackson, 1st Miami, J.Johnson

Mavs: Adams, Waiters, Ferguson

OKC: THJ, Windler, Leonard, Dragic, Lee,

Miami: Try it by veterans CP3, Butler, Love and Adebayo, Winslow and Herro arround!

Cavs: Go joung and get J.Jackson and a 1st 2020 for Love

Mavs: Get a strong force in the middle for a 1st and change THJ by Waiters and Jackson by a 3&D Ferguson.

OKC: Go unter the luxury CAP and finalize their rebuild and free up a lot CAP next year move and get a scorer on the wing.

13 Oct 2019 14:32:39
I don’t think the Cavs would give up Windler in a deal like tins. They’re basically just trading a 1st from last year for a future first.

13 Oct 2019 19:57:26
If they keep Windler, they will have 16 players and need to move one away. Since y a basically right, you can take every other palyer instead of him.

13 Oct 2019 23:22:33
They just took him in the first round and he probably improved his stock in the summer league. I’d take him over a late future first any day.

12 Oct 2019 19:47:53
Since everyone is doing Paul trades, I thought I'd do one too.
-OKC 2nd
-OKC 1st

12 Oct 2019 23:12:36
Why do people think that the Cavs will be willing to take Paul? It makes less than 0 sense for the Cavs unless they’re getting 3 picks just to take him. That doesn’t include what they’d want for Sexton.

10 Oct 2019 07:45:38
MAGIC/CAVS/SUNS Three Teams Deal January 15

Cavs Trade Tristan Thompson Darius Garland John Henson

SUNS Trade Kelly Oubre Jr

Magic Trade NIkola Vucevic Markelle Fultz

Suns receive John Henson (exp) Markelle Fultz

Magic receive Darius Garland Kelly Oubre Jr Tristan Thompson (exp)

Cavs receive NIkola Vucevic

What y'all think?

10 Oct 2019 08:19:40
Why would the cavs want Vucevic?

10 Oct 2019 08:57:14
Why would Orlando want to trade Vucevic, since they just signed him?

10 Oct 2019 09:09:31
The Cavs aren’t trading Garland and Vucevic makes no sense for them.

10 Oct 2019 17:35:58
Look guys Magic need a point guard and Bama need to start @ Center why not Trade Vucevic.

10 Oct 2019 17:43:43
JoeB: Why would the Warriors want to trade Russell when they just signed him?

You sign guys for the future of your team, even if the player isn't in the plans for the future.

Vuc seems like a great option for trades right now. He doesn't seem like he's in the long term plans. It'll be curious to see if Gordon or Vuc gets traded first.

10 Oct 2019 17:57:27
That may be true Smooth, but you are asking teams to trade their PG and put themselves in the exact position Orlando is currently in (AKA needing a starting PG) . It is not surprising that teams are not willing to do that.

10 Oct 2019 18:27:14
Well toronto could trade lowry since it would be nice to have Freddy start at pg.

10 Oct 2019 02:35:27
Cavs get Paul, Nader, Burton
***Unmentioned Paul destination that I think makes sense. Pair him with Love in a weak East and maybe they add another piece with their expiring deals. Doesn't cost any picks.

Mavs get Thompson, Knight
***They get a couple role players who are also expiring contracts.

Thunder get Hardaway, Lee, Sexton
***Add an asset and depth on the wings. No more long term money tied up in Paul. Gives them another guy to build around.

Sexton, Schroeder
SGA, Ferguson, Diallo
Hardaway, Lee, Roberson
Gallinari, Bazley, Muscala
Adams, Noel, Patton

10 Oct 2019 08:22:01
I like K Love and CP3 in the same team, but i don't see this happen with the cavs.

And the cavs shouldn't give up a young piece for an aging pointguard.

10 Oct 2019 09:11:38
Sexton has positive value. Paul has negative value. Also, if they don’t finish bottom 10, they lose their pick. So this could cost them a pick and they still might not make the playoffs.

09 Oct 2019 21:39:20
Cavs and hawks

Cavs get cam reddish

Hawks get Collin sexton

10 Oct 2019 00:34:47
Why for either team?

Bucks/Magic/Cavs February 8

Magic Trade Aaron Gordon NIKOLA Vucevic

Cavs Trade Kevin Love

Bucks Trade Brook Lopez Ersan IIyasova

Magic receive Kevin Love Brook Lopez

Bucks receive NIkola Vucevic

Cavs receive Aaron Gordon Ersan IIyasova

07 Oct 2019 13:33:44
Magic trade the best 2 players in this deal, why would they do that?

07 Oct 2019 17:09:30
Magic they to start Bama @ Center Kevin Love is Better than Vucevic and Gordon and Lopez going to be back up Center for Magic.

07 Oct 2019 20:43:05
An All-Star back up Center. Just what Orlando needs. Good thing it wasnt a PG.

07 Oct 2019 21:40:57
Kevin Love is better than Vucevic? That's the funniest thing I've heard all day. Love is a basket case, his head is all messed up. Vucevic is an All Star and averages a double double every night.

06 Oct 2019 02:59:21

This trade passes on trade machine.

MAVS get Drummond from Detroit
get Osman from Cleveland

CAVS get Hardaway and Jackson
from Dallas

Pistons get Lee from Dallas
get Thompson from Cleveland

WHY DETROIT,,,both expiring contracts that could be resigned if they fit team... Most likely will not resign Drummond so this opens up cap space.

WHY CLEVELAND,,, upgrade at shooting guard and young player who fits into budget with control for two seasons while also opening up cap space..

WHY DALLAS,,, Fills need for a defensive rebounder and pick and roll player to feed off Luka and Porzee. Also allows Dallas chance to sign Drummond to extension in same manner as Porzingis deal.

06 Oct 2019 11:03:43
That’s awful for the Cavs. Hardaway and Clarkson are the same guy. Osman is currently their starting sf. Why give up young talent for an inefficient, overpaid sixth man?

Detroit gets shafted even harder in this. They down grade at center, get older, and get a player in Lee that just isn’t very good for one of the better young centers in basketball.

The Mavs give up nothing of value and get back the two
Off valuable players in the trade.

06 Oct 2019 13:08:47
Nice! *applause*.

02 Oct 2019 23:31:59
- T.Thompson
- Hardaway
- 1st Mavs

- Jackson

- Lee
- 2x2nd Mavs

- Drummond
- Snell
- Z.Smith

Dallas gets needed 3&D and a force in the middle.
Cavs get 2 picks finally for Thompson that will not extend.
76ers get a scorer backup for T.Harris that can create by himself. Jackson was pick 15/2017, Z.Smith pick 16/2018 think a exchange.
Pistons get another zoneplayer and a good scoring wing, that may help them well if he is health and scores the numbers he did in ATL 45%/35%.

03 Oct 2019 00:20:14
There’s actually talk that if they can get TT cheap, they may extend him. There’s a solid chance he’ll be traded, but if that’s all they can get for him/ his expiring, they probably value him more as a veteran leader that can still help the rookies on the floor and wants to be in Cleveland.

03 Oct 2019 00:37:43
Pistons say no.

03 Oct 2019 00:53:43
Pistons say no, 76ers say no, and Cavs say no.

03 Oct 2019 16:44:21
no, no, no? Wait a minute! Yes? Yes! Yes. ; )

02 Oct 2019 08:32:08
Hawks - Gordon
Cavs - Bamba
Magic - Sexton Reddish Crabbe and Hawks 1st

Magic basically trades project for project (Bamba for Reddish) and receives Sexton Crabbe for Gordon. Sexton would be a better fit w Fultz than Garland due to Fultz height and solid defense.


Porter Jr


02 Oct 2019 11:55:28
It makes some sense, but I don’t think the Cavs want to trade Sexton.

02 Oct 2019 15:19:41
I like Bamba for sexton

And Isaac should play, so getting a good pick for A Gordon is a fair trade.

25 Sep 2019 13:53:36
Cavs Thunder Houston

Cavs receive

Thunder receive
Nance Jr

Rockets receive
2022 second round pick back from Cavs
2023 second round pick from Thunder

Trade two:
Cavs Wizards

Cavs receive
2020 second round pick from Chi or Memphis
2024 second round pick

Wizards receive

Trade one Thunder get out of Paul's contract and give up expandable players like Adams and Schroeder who they tested the market for this past of season. While they also add expiring contracts and a good young player in Nance Jr.
Houston gets their third star to play with Westbrook and Harden. Love knows how to be the third option on a championship caliber team and the rockets get 2 seconds to their depleted draft stock.

Trade two: I believe this is the best the Wizards could get for Wall and his contract., Two good role players on expiring contracts and a replacement for Wall with Clarkson who could match his offensive production and Thompson would become the best Center they have after this trade.

I already know what people will say. Why bring in 3 guards when you already have Sexton and Garland and it's going to stunt their development. I disagree big time. Sexton and Garland will only learn from Paul, Wall and Schroeder and while Walls out the Cavs could play Paul and Sexton as the starters with Garland and Schroeder as the back ups. Paul could mentor Sexton and Schroeder could do that for Garland while on and off the floor. Then add the leadership of Wall and giving his insight. Then the amount that someone like Garland especially could absorb is maxed out. Frees up space for Porter Jr and Windler behind Osman. Also you have two dominant defensive big men in Capela and Adams starting. This team may not be a top 5 east team this year but next year with the development of the young core and chemistry built up, this is has potential to be a contenting team in the east. Better than what the Cavs could have for the next 4 years.

Cavs depth Chart
Osman/Porter Jr/ Windler

25 Sep 2019 14:11:46
Why would the Cavs do this? They get one player of value in Capela and they give up their best player to get two god awful contracts at pg and they end up with 4 pgs that should be or will want to start next season and 2 starting centers that can’t play another position. You just made a bad team with a ton of long term money on the books. The wall deal in particular is ridiculous. 2 2nds to take on that contract? I’d want 3 1sts to even consider it. Paul isn’t a mentor. By all accounts his teammates don’t like him and he’s hard to play with. Schroeder has been a head case and forced himself off a bad team already. Both guys are going to want out. Delly and Knight are both guys that are just happy to be on nba rosters collecting big checks and both can be mentors. Delly seems like one of the ultimate team guys and Knight has been on record talking about how Sexton and him have similar skill sets and that he can help Sexton develop. By the time Love was back, the locker room seemed to be in a good shape. Not to mention the Cavs would be in the luxury over this nonsensical abomination of a team.

25 Sep 2019 21:42:58
Haha I knew you would love this trade Rkenne. I understand this isn’t believable but I think the Cavs should look at it. The Cavs need more playmakers. I know that Garland could develop into the play maker but he isn’t ready to start and if they have Garland develop with the second unit and have either Sexton Or Schroeder beside him. The pressure wouldn’t be on him to produce and they would let the game come naturally to him. Paul and Schroeder attitude shouldn’t be a problem. Both would be more motivated after this trade to prove everyone wrong. Wall is already motivated with his injury. Capela and Adams are both young and yes centers but defensively they would be able to control the key area themselves. Also any team trying to deal with the size of Capela and Adams would struggle. Having both would mean more rebounds and thus opportunity for the speed of the guards to run the break or pull up from deep. Try contending the size down low then also match the speed of the three guards. Would be difficult to do. Gives the rookies more playing time as well so they could develop. Do they go into luxury yes. But giving time for this team to build chemistry would only help them. Cavs keep all the young developmental pieces in this trade as well. With the draft lottery even being a bottom 3 team doesn’t guarantee a good draft pick as we know so why not go for is and give the fans a reason to be excited except wait another few years and we may be good. I honesty do believe this team could contend next year once Wall returns but got to take a risk in Cleveland for them to have a chance as we know.

25 Sep 2019 22:03:20
If they could keep Love and get Paul, Roberson and Gallinari, then maybe you consider it. Then you flip Sexton for something. Wall is guy who’s game is largely predicated on him being athletic and he blew out his Achilles. He has a 4 year super max contract. It’s easily the worst contract in the league.

26 Sep 2019 02:34:16
Cavs have nothing of value for the Thunder other than picks. Why would the Thunder trade Adams, Paul, Gallinari, etc. For players that are worse than the Thunder's bench players?

26 Sep 2019 11:14:14
Paul and Schroeder both have negative value. A trade that let's you get off of them and isn’t sending out young talent is a win.

21 Sep 2019 12:26:28
Cavs and nuggets

Cavs get bol bol and a first round pick

Nuggets get Clarkson and two second round picks

21 Sep 2019 16:12:51
Another salary inbalance that voids the trade.

21 Sep 2019 21:31:07
Try Bol Bol and a second rounder for Dylan Winder.

22 Sep 2019 03:47:32
Why would the Cavs give up Windler for a 2nd and a 2 way player? They were willing to give up 4 2nds for Porter and they took him after Windler. That was before Windler looked good in summer league under horrible conditions for a shooter (no one who could create on ball) . He showed range, the ability to come around screens, rebounding, hustle, impressive passing, he looked like one of the better athletes, and he defended well.

22 Sep 2019 14:37:53
Its was more about the point of matching salaries.

21 Sep 2019 12:15:56
Cavs and nets

Cavs get: Allen and prince

Nets get: Thompson and clarkson

21 Sep 2019 12:29:10
Dude, study the rules for trades in the NBA first. Thompson + Clarkson is $32 mil in salary while Allen + Prince is only $6 mil in salary. How is Brooklyn taking on $26 mil in salary when they are already over the salary cap?
