Okc gets Batum, Portis, pick
***They get out of the last year of Paul's deal and add an asset.

Hornets get partially guaranteed contracts
***Move on from Batum, can cut incoming players, be players in free agency.

Knicks get Paul
***Get their guy.



1.) 04 Jul 2020 16:52:28
Why okc take Batum and portis? Knicks have cap space. Knicks can decline team options on players and take Paul without sending players. Or okc take partially guaranteed contracts.

2.) 04 Jul 2020 17:12:35
Who's pick.

3.) 04 Jul 2020 17:57:34
Clippers pick via NY.

4.) 04 Jul 2020 19:09:26
A second from both the Knicks and Hornets.

5.) 05 Jul 2020 07:51:35
What’s the logic for OKC?

6.) 06 Jul 2020 22:18:31
Okc isn’t going to just give Chris Paul away for nothing it’s stupid really look at where they are at this year really okc is a small forward and one or two good rotation players away from being true contenders if Sam Presti wanted to push his chips in and get a player of say bradley Beal or Devin Booker they would be good if okc does give up Chris Paul it’s going to be for a couple younger players and a first bout like the Julius Randle & Dennis Smith jr plus the la clippers 2020 draft pick but okc won’t give him away for nothing that’s stupid if hold onto him and add around what u got before I give him up for bum ass players

Magic get Paul

Hornets get Vucecic

Okc gets Batum, Fournier, CHA 2020 first


1.) 26 Jun 2020 16:28:44
Not good for Orlando.

2.) 26 Jun 2020 17:01:13
Paul is not getting a top 10 pick for OKC.

3.) 26 Jun 2020 18:08:20
Charlotte pick goes to Orlando if anyone.

4.) 26 Jun 2020 18:58:17
Church if you going rob teams, at least rob them for position of need or cut payroll. Alexander Dort Ferguson Diallo Roby options Burton Nadar for wing players how many more wings do want to have (steal) .

1 pg 1 pf 1 c under contract. Potential Gallo and Noel resign. With 2 picks, 27 and 50 a void at to 2 pg 2 pf 2 ce position.

5.) 26 Jun 2020 22:46:41
How many times are these guys going to tell you that you’re not getting a 1st for Paul let alone a lottery pick.

6.) 26 Jun 2020 23:46:14
USA, over/ under 5.5 more times.

7.) 27 Jun 2020 02:24:02
Okc would owe like a first to each team.



25 Jun 2020 13:32:03
Charlotte gets Tobias Harris
***Ridding themselves of Batum in exchange for the scoring of Harris is a win. He can get plenty of looks for the Hornets.

Philly gets Chris Paul
***A simple swap of Harris for Paul could do wonders for the 76ers. Paul can play off ball and let Simmons control and can stretch the floor. But it's his leadership that could take Philly over the top.

Okc gets Nic Batum, Jaden McDaniels, protected Hornets pick
***One year left on that Batum deal. They get a young player and a pick which is the most they could probably ask for.


1.) 25 Jun 2020 14:36:22
Why does philly want 2 30 mil pg?

Okc does not need to be in trade.
Horford for Batum protected pick and still this does not help sixers win.
Sixers need shooters.

2.) 25 Jun 2020 15:26:31
A 30 million and a 40 million PG even.

I don’t think Paul would fit in Phili. Paul is a no nonsense buzzkill. Embiid is goofy. They’d hate each other just like Paul and Griffin did.



22 Jun 2020 01:55:01
Hornets get Randle, Okc 2nd
***Randle can play but this is more about offloading a bad contract.

Knicks get Paul, Okc 2nd
***Many have suspected and made comments on why this makes sense. I'll spare you.

Okc gets Batum, Portis, Dallas 1st, 2020 Charlotte 1st
***They take one two short bad contracts but offload longer money and add two more firsts. They can sign and trade Gallo or let him ring chase. They can add a lottery guy this year and lots more talent in the years to come.


1.) 22 Jun 2020 07:50:22
Hirnets giving a first up for randle?

2.) 22 Jun 2020 09:49:09
Paul is not getting OKC 2 firsts and one a lottery pick as well.

3.) 23 Jun 2020 01:05:33
Why does Charlotte need to "offliad a bad contract"? They are going to be one of the few teams with cap space next season. They are at $80 mil including Batum's salary. There is no reason to trade away a draft pick.



16 Jun 2020 03:57:26
Pistons get Paul, Burton

Okc gets Griffin, Kennard, 2021 pick swap rights


1.) 16 Jun 2020 11:40:44
NONONO for pistons.

Not a rumor, but a fun what-if.

Charlotte gets Vucevic
***Offload Rozier and bring in one of the best low post scorers. Opens the door for Graham to start.

Okc gets Rozier, Ross, Monk, Lotto protected pick from Charlotte
***They take on Rozier hoping to do a Schroeder-esque makeover with him. Ross helps with their lack of shooting, Monk is a flier on a one year deal, and they add a pick (although it might not convey). Not the Paul return they think they can get, but it's probably realistic.

Orlando gets Paul
***Paul came to Okc and was paired with a high potential flex guard which allowed him to start but rest when needed. That could work here too with Fultz. They have some logjams but they also have the type of guys who could work for a playoff team. Paul could squeeze out the most of this roster and be in the East. Then let's get nostalgic and sign Dwight Howard. I know, I know. But he's a great fit with Paul, can redeem himself in Orlando, and a hole is there with Vooch traded and Bamba not necessarily the answer.



1.) 06 Jun 2020 12:59:31
I think that pick should go to Magic. Or they just cut OKC out of the deal.



03 Apr 2020 14:31:54
Ok this is just for fun. I'd love to see someone high up in the Pistons organization to create a modern day Bad Boys Pistons roster. Help me complete the team and offer up deals to get these guys in place...

PG - Beverly ($12M)
SG - Kennard ($4M)
SF - Butler ($33M)
PF - Green ($19M)
C - Adams ($25M)
6th man - PJ Tucker ($9M)

That's an expensive team. So maybe some suggestions on changing the lineup as well? Remember. Just for fun.


1.) 03 Apr 2020 17:29:07
Snell (opts in) +Lakers 2nd for Beverley
Griffin+Svi+Sekou+'21 DET 1st+'23 top 10 protected 1st DET for Butler
McRae (s&t) +Rose+DET '20 1st rd player+'24 2nd DET for Green
S&T Henson+POR 2nd+GSW 2nd for Adams
Maker+'25 2nd DET for Tucker.

2.) 04 Apr 2020 05:11:34
Bad boys had a star pg
Solid sg great defender
Crazy sf
Thug pf
Bigger thug center

Today that be
No thugs left.

Knicks are interested in a Paul trade this summer. They could offer Randle, Portis, Ellington, mayyyybe a couple seconds or something.... but what if OKC tries to pry away something different?

Fill in the blank.

In a Chris Paul to New York deal, it would take _____ picks you the Knicks for OKC to get RJ Barrett back instead of Ellington.

SGA, Schroeder
Ferguson, Dort
Barrett, Diallo
Randle, Bazley
Adams, Portis


1.) 07 Mar 2020 19:55:36
3 or 4.



02 Mar 2020 02:40:09
Not a rumor, but a fun hypothetical. Which of the Big 3 OKC Thunder players is more likely to have a reunion with the team AND (assuming it comes via trade) what should the deal look like?


Okc gets Russ
Rockets get CP3

Okc gets KD
Nets get Adams, Schroeder, 3 firsts

Okc gets Harden
Rockets get Adams, Schroeder, 3 firsts

Thoughts? Ideas? For what it's worth, I don't see any happening, but it's an interesting thought.


1.) 02 Mar 2020 14:54:07
Interesting thought? No, not really.



15 Feb 2020 11:30:53
Draft night last year Okc picked Brandon Clarke and then dealt him for Darius Bazley. Bazley doesn't look horrible, but Clarke looks like a massive steal. Wish we had kept him.

Here's my question. If we had kept Clarke would that have made Gallinari MORE likely to be traded, or would we have still kept him?

Paul, Schroeder
SGA, Diallo
Dort, Ferguson
Gallinari, Clarke
Adams, Noel


1.) 15 Feb 2020 15:53:08
Keep. FO seems yo be about the playoff push. Get farther than where Westbrook could take them.

Rkenne_16, I am a die hard thunder guy. If they grab RJ, they have two young guys under team control for like the next 5-10ish years if they give them 5 year extensions after their rookie deals. SGA proved he has star potential and I think RJ has it too. Both are Canadian and can grow a special chemistry long term. They have tons of picks moving forward. Like a crazy amount. Burning a few for a top asset like Barrett is worth the gamble. They can grow together and hopefully get back to a perennial playoff team. They are a small market and won’t win big FA sweepstakes anytime soon and so getting a young guy under team control is massive. Just my thoughts.

I am in the minority, but in a Paul to New York deal that includes the Knicks being willing to move Barrett, OKC will want RJ. and they have the ammo in picks to get him. Instead of a Paul to New York deal that includes picks returning to OKC, OKC attaches 1-2 picks to Paul and gets RJ back to pair with fellow Canadian SGA. I think it’s a win for both sides. The pick could go to Indy if they want Oladipo still.

I agree that SGA probably has the most value for Sac but no way okc moves him. They’d want to pair the two.

Ok what about this instead.

Philly gets Paul and Burton
Okc gets Batum, Richardson, Charlotte 1st
Hornets get Horford.

I think it’s honestly a bit of an overpay. I think Paul in Philly would be huge for their offense. And they have plenty of defense to cover. I’d say a swap of Paul and Burton for Horford and Richardson would be more likely for both teams.
