Portland trades Zach Collins
Boston trades Jaylen Brown

I know Boston fans will scoff, but curious what impartial fans think of the value swap. This would then assume Portland lands a new starting PF (Love, Griffin, Gordon), but that's for another line of thought.

I like this deal for Boston
I believe J Brown has a higher cealing, but Z Collins is a good fit in Boston

I hope Portland can land K Love or A Gordon, not sure how Griffin, McCollum and Lillard can play together.

And Portland traded for Whiteside, so they need to keep Collins to play beside him. I like the fit of Whiteside as a temporary replacement for Nurkic. Then they have a massive expiring contract at the trade deadline.


3.) 01 Jul 2019 19:39:40
Yeah, that won't happen. Brown is a starting wing, Collins a lower-rotation big. Flip Nurkic for Collins and that might get it done.


4.) 01 Jul 2019 20:08:28
Collins is Portland's starting 4 (and last year was their primary backup big) . And Brown is Boston's third best wing (if you believe in Hayward, which Boston does) .

(Ignoring injury concerns) Nurkic is way more valuable than Brown. No way I'd consider that swap.

Again, all moot with Whiteside in Portland.


5.) 01 Jul 2019 20:16:17
Maybe Collins + Simons.

Trade done: Blazers swap Evan Turner to the Hawks for Kent Bazemore.

Seems good for both. Atlanta uses Turner as a backup PG, and clears space for young wings.

Portland gets an upgrade at wing that they desperately need.

games? Is an upgrade?

Idea from The Ringer:

Blazers get:

Aaron Gordon
Terrance Ross

Magic get:

CJ McCollum
Meyers Leonard
2019 First round pick (top 10 protected)

Blazers trade:

Harkless
Simons (could also be Swanigan or Trent)
2019 lottery protected first

Minny trades

Covington


Minny gets some future assets as they continue to head towards the lottery. Portland solidifies their weakest position (wing) .

Swanigan, Harkless, and the 1st is more than fair, but it's tough for me to see the wolves doing that if the butler trade was a trend. Covington has had 4 point games in 30+ minutes this season, I like his D but his streaky shooting is undesirable. Harkless is probably done and you got to pay to offload him but if he isn't and can return healthy I'd prefer him right now if that is possible. They are really similar players. Covington reminds me of a young Harkless in Orlando. Harkless was great before this last knee injury. It's concerning because he's post-op, post-rehab and having swelling. Not good. He looked a little slower and less athletic when he last played too. The '19 1st, Simons and Trent are keepers in my opinion. Aren't really taking up room, cheap, good potential. Seth Curry can go before them but not right now! Swanigan can go. Myers game works for the league right now amazingly enough, but I'd deal him too. Obviously Turner as well, even if his game is working right now!

It’s possible, but I think Minnesota will try to make a run for the playoffs first.

Butler for Covington and Saric.

I didn’t think they’d be able to get that kind of haul for him after this long, but teams get desperate. I like it for both sides.

Bmiller66

1.) 10 Nov 2018 18:47:06
I love it for Minnesota. It seems like a big risk for Philly though. First, can they resign Jimmy, 2nd, can Simmons, Embiid and Butler play effectively together and finally, how does adding Butler affect the development of Simmons and Fultz. It feels like a big swing for a team that is that young and has that kind of upside. If it doesn’t work, it could be pretty disastrous. I also think they now need to make a 2nd move to go out and get some more shooting.


2.) 10 Nov 2018 18:48:25
Two OK players for a very good one. Doubt the Wolves can get anything more out of Covington and/ or Saric that the Sixers haven't already bled from them.


3.) 10 Nov 2018 19:06:02
@Bmiller66 That trade actually just happened!


4.) 10 Nov 2018 19:52:04
If I was a minority owner with an intelligent thought I'd be pretty upset with the Wolves for not taking 4 first round picks. Teague is expendable with rose playing well. They could have had a bright future now its wait and see how long this lasts before all three of these guys are possibly somewhere else.


5.) 10 Nov 2018 21:05:18
Guess the word is Butler is committed if all goes well this season.


6.) 10 Nov 2018 21:55:10
4 firsts sounds like a haul, but 4 picks 25-30 really isn’t great. Minny could flip Covington for a first and a young guy (Portland for Harkless, Simons/ Swanigan/ Trent, and a first? ) . They could get a similar haul for Saric. Two nice players that could be great trade assets.

Nba-gmaster made me think of this question as I'm thinking about how good NY or Cleveland can be:

If you have a young talented team that you want to develop, with some recent lottery picks, who is the person you want on that roster the least?

Possible options:
JR Smith
Melo
Kanter
Nick Young.

Bmiller66

1.) 17 Sep 2018 18:36:09
For me it’s Melo and not close. I think young players actually look up to Melo and see him as a role model. On a young team he would still be looked at as a leader and that’s not exactly a guy you want to lead. He isn’t as bad and influence as Smith or Young, but I don’t see guys looking Young or Smith for leadership or guidance. I think they’re more cautionary tales of players that had a ton of talent and were never more than mediocre or slightly above average players. Plus, their play styles aren’t as detrimental to the team. They spread the floor and do take some bad shots, but neither dominates the ball. I don’t think Kanter is really a bad influence around the team. He’s just a black hole that can slow down pacing and hurt player growth on the court. Melo does that as well and probably worse since he actually gets the ball on the perimeter.

But KAT isn’t a superstar. He’s a secondary star. No way he can be the best player on a top 4 seed. You’re not looking for a compliment, you’re looking for a #1.

“Too old” was probably the wrong term. Too many guys on big contracts. Very few rookie contracts. And almost no assets.

Add what? What is Minny luring to play with Towns and Wiggins? Even if they have a full max amount open, they're not pulling Steph Curry or Harden to come and be their #1 option. Maybe they can get a guy like Aaron Gordon when his deal is up. They couldn't land Russell (who probably doesn't even cement them as a playoff team) .

I just think Minnesota's short term outlook isn't great. They're too old with too few assets and too many big contracts to be building, but they're not good enough to not build.

Well, you have to give up assets on an already bad team to trade Wiggins. That doesn't feel successful short or long term. Find me a way to improve the team to be a solid playoff team while trading Wiggins and I'll buy into that as a possibility. I just don't see it.

By trading Towns, yes, you're admitting you're basically tanking. But isn't that better than wallowing in the mid-late lottery with a bunch of ok pieces around a second tier star?

He had a solid efficiency rating (19 PER), his defensive rating really isn't bad, and he lead a team to the playoffs without much around him.

Maybe he can't be a third wheel, but as a focal point of the offense, he was really good. Last year was also his first full healthy season away from LA.

Also, his max contract is a second contract max, not third. He's making 27 million, not 40+. He's paid like the 14th highest paid guard in the NBA. That's about right. You think there's more than 14 guards in the NBA better than him?

Minny is tied to Towns and Wiggins as their two highest paid players for the next few years, can they afford the status quo?
