OKC gets Markkanen, Felicio

Magic get Schroeder

Bulls get Gordon

What needs tweaked? I feel like OKC needs to give up a bit more. Thoughts?




23 Oct 2020 23:43:25
Magic get Paul, #2 pick
***Paul slides Fultz to the 2 and teaches him everything he knows. They can draft whoever they think is the best player available. In my opinion this makes them an immediate playoff team.

Warriors get Vucevic, Ferguson
***Vucevic gives even more space on the outside for the Splash bro's on their comeback tour. They lose the pick, but I think vooch helps them win now.

Thunder get Wiggins, Aminu, #15 pick
***Thats a good pick in this draft. Wiggins and Aminu can either play well and get flipped later or play poorly and help them tank.



1.) 24 Oct 2020 00:31:11
I love this deal so they can Draft Anthony Edwards.



20 Oct 2020 13:20:42
OKC gets Wiggins, Ntilikina, Knox, 1st from Knicks (not the 8th)
***I think Wiggins would be a great fit in OKC as he will score but not affect winning. The first is the real asset, but I don't think they can get the 8th pick.

Warriors get Randle, Gibson
***Instead of using their #2 pick on Wiseman, they bring in two bigs that can play while dumping Wiggins. They can then use that pick on either Lamelo, Edwards, or another top non-big.

Knicks get Paul
***Do we really need another explanation on this one?



1.) 20 Oct 2020 14:20:11
Warriors are getting too much for Wiggins.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 15:11:25
I think I’d keep Wiggins over taking Randle. Looking at just on the court, Randle is worse than Wiggins to me. They’re both hollow stat stuffers. Neither plays much defense, but I’d rather have a wing that’s a defensive weakness than a big.

I’m sure I’m in the minority in that feeling. I just really don’t like Randle as a player. In my top 3 “I don’t want him at any cost” of current players.

3.) 20 Oct 2020 17:15:37
What Bmiller said, only insert Draymond Green's name instead of Randle in the analysis.

4.) 20 Oct 2020 19:15:05
The 5 time all defense team and DPOY “doesn’t play much defense”? Interesting opinion.

5.) 20 Oct 2020 20:34:17
Not defending him as a person. He’s a douche, and dirty.

If anything, Green is the opposite of those guys. He contributes way more to winning than his stats ever begin to say.

But I get why he’s hated. He deserves it.

6.) 20 Oct 2020 23:33:09
Yes, the dirty is what gets me with Green more than anything. Just like Lambier used to be where they intentionally try to hurt other players. It's disgusting.

Prime example is how Green intentionally tries to kick other players in the groin, repeated instances, with zero consequences because the Warriors make the league money. If this was the 70's or 80's, Green would be stomped like a narc at a biker rally by every team's enforcer.

7.) 20 Oct 2020 23:40:16
Bmiller, I was referring to the last paragraph you posted of the players I would least like to have.



15 Oct 2020 13:25:06
Just an idea.

If OKC can't find a Paul taker, and Gallo walks. What if OKC did something like this.

Spurs get Adams, 2nd
***Adams seems like a Spurs guy. I think Pop would love him. He's still young and on an expiring deal.

OKC gets Aldridge
***Aldridge provides wayyyy more offense than Adams. He's not athletic, but Bazley is. Or they could try and bring back Jerami Grant to play next to him. OR they could slide Aldridge to the 4 and bring back Noel and let him start.



1.) 15 Oct 2020 16:07:45
why not get younger.



14 Oct 2020 20:22:40
Hawks get Schroeder, Ferguson
***Schroeder returns to Atl better equipped for success. He's a better shooter, better off ball, more willing on defense, and ok with the sixth man role. He's a great playmaker off the bench and on a palatable deal. Ferguson needs a change of scenery. A bit of a throw in. This is a playoff type move.

Okc gets Reddish, Dedmon
***Dedmon fits as a backup big who can help be a vet during a rebuild. Reddish can step in as a starter next year or at least see a much bigger role. I think Reddish can grow in okc much more than in atl bc of the presence of Hunter, Huerter, and whoever they draft. Reddish will automatically be one of the top prospects on the Thunder next year.



1.) 14 Oct 2020 20:42:51
Why would want Dennis Schroeder back and He doesn’t want to come back to ATL so Hawks say no!

2.) 14 Oct 2020 21:09:43
Extra STUPID trade.

3.) 14 Oct 2020 21:14:57
Surge Ibaka for SGA, who says no?

4.) 14 Oct 2020 21:22:08
Thunder say no!

5.) 15 Oct 2020 04:01:48
The a homer trade my trades for Lakers never looked like this.

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.

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

Call me crazy, but I do think somehow getting Russ to Charlotte works. But that deal doesn't. Maybe sending Rozier and Batum (maybe throw in a McDaniels or protected pick or something) for Russ could work for both sides?

I literally never want to see Patrick Beverly in a Thunder Jersey.

I agree, but Schroeder solves so much of their bench scoring. Does a roster of Curry, Klay, Draymond, Schroeder, their #2 pick, etc. actually not contend? Wouldn't they be the favorite? I'd rather have another championship over another draft pick.

I do like the idea of CP and Griffin on the Knicks.

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.
