With Patrick Williams out for the year, Chicago will need an answer at the F spot that can do a lot for little salary. Here's one solution I thought of.

Okc gets Dragic, Simonovic, 2022 unprotected 1st (Raptors)
***Most people who don't watch OKC (as in most people period) will balk at the idea of Kenrich being worth a first. But trust me he is. He's the ultimate glue guy and an incredible locker room guy. Okc also buys out Dragic and eat the cap hit.

Raptors get Coby White
***Raptors get a young former top 10 pick and hope the change of scenery lifts him. He can run the bench unit or play alongside Barnes and FVV. If he works out, awesome. If he doesn't, that's fine too. They trim tons of money this season and get better.

Chicago gets Kenrich Williams, Theo Maledon
***Kenrich can play the Patrick Williams role and Maledon can play the Coby White role. This gives them two guys without breaking the bank. Both under cheap deals for the next couple seasons.

maledon isn't going to help wining but kenrich williams is an under the radar guy who's a great fit for the bulls.

Thunder get Dwight Powell, 2028 Clips unprotected first

Mavs get Luke Kennard, 2022 Clips 2nd

Clips get Isaiah Roby

Thunder add another first that could be very valuable plus a starting 5 which they lack (I don't think Favors lasts much longer on the roster).

Mavs get another shooter to put with Luka which I think is incredibly valuable.

Clips cut crazy money from the tax bill. I don't think Kennard works for them. This is a future move and addition by subtraction. Roby can play some small ball 5 and has some skill.


1.) 23 Sep 2021 15:36:37
Terrible trade for the Clippers. They're in win-now mode.



20 Sep 2021 21:05:34
Ben Simmons + first


Jamaal Murray

Sixers move on from the Simmons drama and get a fit upgrade. Murray is coming off a big injury, but he is a great playmaker. He's one year younger than Simmons. He's a much better fit.

The Nuggets create a jumbo lineup and try and reclaim Simmons. This is a finals move. Simmons can be the answer to guarding Giannis, KD, Butler, Tatum, Middleton, fill in the blank on a big wing. If Simmons meets his ceiling, Nuggets get better. The pick is if he doesn't.






1.) 20 Sep 2021 23:12:02
Looks like the nuggets want to run the offense through Jokic as the main playmaker, IDK how the fit with Simmons would be.

2.) 20 Sep 2021 23:37:53
Nuggets say no they rather have Jamal Murray over Ben Simmons.

3.) 21 Sep 2021 00:26:32
I would give up more than Ben and a first to get murray.

4.) 21 Sep 2021 03:54:57
add Maxey maybe Nuggets will think about it before they say no.

5.) 21 Sep 2021 13:11:25
Is Denver concerned with Gordon and Simmons on the court together? Spacing around Jokic?



15 Aug 2021 12:11:39
With Nets having Griffin coming back and his success at the 5, plus still having Jordan, plus them drafting Sharpe. I think Claxton could be had.

Okc gets Claxton

Nets get Kenrich Williams

Okc gets a young big man. Nets get a cheap hustle/glue guy.


1.) 15 Aug 2021 14:27:48
nahhh. the nets were a much better defensive team with claxton on the court. claxton has lots of potential. deandre jordan doesn’t deserve minutes on an nba court anymore.

2.) 15 Aug 2021 22:58:14
Claxton will also get some good minutes at the 4.



07 Aug 2021 22:48:09
What if the Spurs reach out about a Simmons deal?

Is White, Murray, and a first too much? Not enough?


1.) 07 Aug 2021 23:38:53
For Philly (Morey), not enough. But he is delusional so.

2.) 08 Aug 2021 00:29:32
Spurs don't have any player of interest. I don't know why they have so many sg.

3.) 08 Aug 2021 01:12:30
Not enough according to Philly.

4.) 08 Aug 2021 01:51:31
They really have nothing worth Simmons - maybe if they throw multiple firsts.

Who has the worst contract in the NBA today?


1.) 02 Dec 2020 12:02:18
Gordon Hayward
Andrew Wiggins
Al Horford

Not in order.

2.) 02 Dec 2020 12:12:58

3.) 02 Dec 2020 12:36:06
Curry. Oh, you mean like a price-to-performance thing? Paul? Wiggins? Harris?

4.) 02 Dec 2020 13:41:35
Until he plays again and shows he’s not totally broken, it’s Wall. At least the other guys can play.

Griffin is probably second. He has had 1 season in the last 5 that he missed less than 20 games.

Horford rounds out my top 3. He’s now 33, he’s declined, and he hasn’t really been elite for years anyway.

5.) 02 Dec 2020 13:55:30
John wall. Russell Westbrook.

6.) 02 Dec 2020 19:31:21
Wall there really no debate. I don’t say Wiggins cause he can at least play every game and stay healthy. He can score just can’t lead to wins and at that time minny thought he was going to be good but he looked better in Golden state.

7.) 03 Dec 2020 09:53:42
Agree that it’s Wall until he proves that he can still play.

8.) 05 Dec 2020 14:49:28
Wall until he proves he can play and stay Healty

I don't get the Hayward signing, i'm glad he isn't comming to Indy

Westbrook and Paul are still great players

Wiggins is still young and he could flurish in GS

B Griffin is propably donne too.

Trade season begins tomorrow at noon!!


1.) 15 Nov 2020 15:01:03
Yay! I'm really excited.

2.) 15 Nov 2020 15:35:25
Which season's salary cap for tomorrow?

3.) 16 Nov 2020 00:29:36
it's still the same i think. 109.1 million.



26 Oct 2020 14:31:31
Chris Paul to the ______ for _______.

Fill in the blanks! What is Paul's value and what team actually makes sense. I am a Thunder fan but want to know what's plausible.


1.) 26 Oct 2020 15:37:16
Knicks for a late first.

2.) 27 Oct 2020 08:04:32
Knicks for expiring contracts and the Clippers pick.

3.) 27 Oct 2020 10:19:12
Chris Paul needs to be on a Championship contender team. Based on his contract, a team with cap is the only fit. The Knicks or the Suns.

4.) 27 Oct 2020 14:49:05
Maybe something like Horford, Richardson, Thybulle for Paul.

Kuzma, McGee, Bradley, KCP, Green for Paul fits financially. Three guys would have to accept their player options though, which might not be realistic.

I feel like a lot of people have suggested something like Bledsoe, Hill, Ilyasovs for Paul. I guess as long as the Bucks hold onto Lopez and Divincenzo it’s decent for them.



14 Sep 2020 13:40:29
What if OKC attached picks to Paul instead of demanding assets for him in order to land a young stud?

Philly gets Paul and ___ Picks (tell me how many it would take to fairly get done)

OKC gets Simmons and Scott (included for salary)



1.) 14 Sep 2020 16:18:10
A lot, at least 5. I doubt Philly accepts.



11 Sep 2020 17:34:02
What's the best landing spot for CP3 and what's the best package OKC can get back?

Possible landing spots:

I'd either like to see him in Philly or Denver personally.



1.) 11 Sep 2020 19:29:49
Philly could really use him but I can’t imagine they’d be the highest bidder.

2.) 11 Sep 2020 19:36:44
I’d love to see cp3 in Denver.

3.) 13 Sep 2020 21:28:59

Okc would do the exact same trade and has 16.

Darry, I would disagree. Have you watched Hill this year? I wouldn't bash you if you hadn't. There's been zero nationally televised Thunder games this year. But Hill has played well.

Fredman, OKC can throw in a guy like Miller to get it closer. The basic framework doesn't change though. Works on the tradenba trade machine.

Shizzee, valid point. Just an idea.
