Pacers got completely robbed in this deal

Pacers definitely say no!

2.) 21 Dec 2021 21:04:45
That’s really horrible for Indy. Really really bad. Add Little and Simons to Indy and then it’s just not good for them. And move the picks to Indy, philly shouldn’t be getting them.

3.) 21 Dec 2021 21:05:20
What kind of garbage return is this for the pacers? Old man green, expiring contracts and a 2nd round pick for Sabonis and LeVert?! Laughable at best. One of the worst trades I've seen on this site.

4.) 21 Dec 2021 22:26:27
You seriously believe that Portland can get Simmons + Sabonis without Lillard being involved in the trade?

5.) 22 Dec 2021 17:33:57
Why? You make an Indy fan cry.

SAS Receives:

Hassan Whiteside
Kent Bazemore
Skal Labissiere
2020 1st Rd Pick
2022 1st Rd Pick
2024 1st Rd Pick (lottery Protected)

POR Receives:
Lamarcus Aldridge
Demar Derozan


1.) 22 Jul 2019 17:36:44
Make it Collins instead of Skal and that is a done deal at the trade deadline. Not seeing Coach Pop putting up with Whiteside for too long.

2.) 22 Jul 2019 17:46:30
Maybe Nurkic-Labissiere for LMA

I like the idea LMA going back to Portland
Nurkic is better than Whiteside, but Whiteside-LMA is a better duo than LMA-Nurkic. and they can keep Collins as a sixth man taking a load during the regular season, So LMA can shine in the playoffs.

C: Whiteside
PG: Lillard
Sixth: Collins
that's a scary contender.

3.) 22 Jul 2019 19:10:06
I don't think that Whiteside is a better fit with LA than Nurkic. It's pretty similar. I actually think Collins is probably the best fit with him, but he's too young/ unproven to be in that conversation.

Also, I just wouldn't trade Nurkic for Aldridge. 28 year old Aldridge? Absolutely. But not at 34 with only one full year left on his contract.

4.) 22 Jul 2019 19:40:04
Fredman - The reason Collins wasn't involved was because of the three 1st round picks and that I don't think the redundancy of having Samanic and Collins at PF would've been a benefit to the Spurs. Skal is a different player on a slightly cheaper contract, with one year left. They wouldn't have to use any cap space to retain Skal, unlike Collins.

5.) 23 Jul 2019 03:26:20
3 draft picks at the #25 range don't have much value. Spurs would rather have Collins than one of the firsts since thay sre giving up 2 All-Star-ish talents. And actually Samanic and Collins are almost polar opposites. Samanic has good offense but poor defense while collins has great defense with below average offense.

Deadline trade:

POR Receives:
Lamarcus Aldridge

SAS Receives:
Hassan Whiteside (expiring)
2020 1st Rd Pick
2021 1st Rd Swap


1.) 21 Jul 2019 17:00:06
Do it now, do it as soon as Whiteside can be traded. It’s a perfect fit for Portland before and after Nurkic comes back.

New Orleans Receives:
Mo Harkless
2019 1st Rd Pick (Unprotected)

Portland Receives:
Nikola Mirotic


1.) 05 Feb 2019 03:30:48
This should happen.



18 Sep 2018 21:41:06

MIN Receives:
Blazers 2019 1st Rd Pick (Top 10 Protected)

POR Receives:

As a blazer fan I would love that, but they can probably get more.

Portland shouldn't do this deal.

More importantly, you lineups are neat. How does Detroit end up with Ayton, and how on Earth does Portland get Jokic?

You can ‘fix’ removing Dame from trades. How many times does dude need to say he’s not being traded?

Evan Fournier is NOT worth Zach Collins, Derrick Jones Jr., Rodney Hood AND a 2nd round pick. Are you ok?

I don't think it's an overpay at all. The best the Rockets can hope for is this year's #16 and next year's #15 picks (lottery protections are great), plus an aging Ariza. The Blazers got a better defender, with roughly the same offensive output at a lower salary who is 6 yrs younger. It was as fair a deal as I've seen for quite some time.

So Fredman, you say the Spurs will want Collins and Little in addition to Whiteside, Bazemore, Labissiere and 3 picks, just to add Derozan to a trade with LMA.

But then you call Derozan, "Evan Turner with a midrange jumper. " The same Evan Turner that the Blazers traded for Bazemore straight up. So adding three picks somehow isn't enough to add a midrange jumper?

Your math isn't checking out, pal.

Kobe and Lance can be taken off this list.

Wes Matthews needs to be added as well as Kevin Martin.
