With reports that the Kings are interested in acquiring Matisse Thybulle, here are a few possible trade ideas:
Note: I am not a fan of either team and don't necessarily know the value

Trade 1:

SAC: Matisse Thybulle

PHI: Terence Davis, 2023 IND 2nd (Protected 56-60), 2028 DAL 2nd



Trade 2:

SAC: Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz

PHI: Malik Monk




1.) 31 Jan 2023 21:42:59
I posted a similar trade, but I assumed Korkmaz value was pretty negative based on the last couple seasons.

2.) 31 Jan 2023 23:44:06
Kings aren’t trading monk.

3.) 01 Feb 2023 01:02:43
Agreed with Hyena, Monk has raised his value significantly and I don't think the Kings want to rock the boat like that.

4.) 01 Feb 2023 02:10:06
Make it Len and Dallas 2nd for Thybulle and you may have something to talk about.

Don't know what Collins' value is exactly but here's an option: PHX-ATL

Suns: John Collins

Hawks: Jae Crowder, Dario Saric, 2023 PHX 2nd, 2024 PHX 2nd, option to swap 2026 2nd



Are two 2nds and a 2nd swap sufficient draft compensation? Or would a protected 1st work instead?


1.) 27 Jan 2023 14:48:11
Hawks might ask for a little bit more. Yeah a protected 1st would make it more interesting. Chris Paul will make Collins look like an allstar at best.

2.) 27 Jan 2023 15:23:02
From what I read in various reports, Collins is falling into that Jeremi Grant mode when he was in Denver. AKA more of a role in the offense. Pretty sure that there is not much of a role in the offense that has CP3, Booker & Ayton all looking to score. Pretty sure that Cam Johnson is the perfect solution to the Suns PF problems.

3.) 27 Jan 2023 17:33:52
As a Tar Heels fan, I definitely believe in Cam Johnson. However, I feel like he works really well off the bench as a 6th man.

2nd unit (when healthy) of
Cam Payne
Landry Shamet
Torrey Craig
Cam Johnson
Bismack Biyombo.

4.) 27 Jan 2023 18:42:10
@GraysonDeMeap. Yea, but Cam Johnson is about to get paid more than you can have as your 6th man. Unless, of course, you are the LA Lakers.



24 Jan 2023 18:16:44
Blazers: Isaiah Stewart, Rodney McGruder

Pistons: Justise Winslow, Keon Johnson, 2024 Top-55 Protected ATL 2nd, 2024 MIN/CHA 2nd, 2025 Top-4 Protected NOL 1st, 2025 SAC 2nd, 2027 NOL 2nd, rights to swap 2027 2nds (Top-32 Protected)

Lillard/Payton II
Grant/Hart/Brown III



1.) 24 Jan 2023 19:30:12
That seems like a ton of value for a guy like Stewart. I don't think he's worth all that.

2.) 24 Jan 2023 20:36:57
Portland doesn't not own the Kings 2025 second. Kings actually own the Blazers 2025 second.



18 Jan 2023 18:19:42
Want to preface this by saying I'm not a Cavs fan (this probably isn't fair).

Cavs: Max Strus, Duncan Robinson, 2023 MIA 1st (Top-10 in 2023, Top-8 in 2024, else 2029, 2030 2nd)

Heat: Caris LeVert, Lamar Stevens, 2023 GSW 2nd




1.) 18 Jan 2023 19:40:24
If you don't think it's fair, why post it?

You are right, it's nowhere near fair. Unprotected 1st Rd pick to take Duncan Robinson. Strus is not worth LeVert and the 2nd Rd pick.

To make it fair, and I'm not even sure Miami can do it, but add another 1st Rd pick, both unprotected.

2.) 18 Jan 2023 20:13:54
Cant do 2030 picks until next season.

3.) 18 Jan 2023 22:37:14
Max Strus seems like a Miami guy. I doubt he'd be happy in Cleveland. If you could add Gabe Vincent to that package, I'd be interested.

It's risky though.



13 Jan 2023 19:14:23
Dont bully please

Knicks: Chris Duarte, 2023 SA 2nd, 2027 UTA 2nd, rights to swap 2030 2nd (Top-32 Protected)

Pacers: Cam Reddish, 2025 MIL 1st




1.) 13 Jan 2023 19:49:15
Reddish is worth a heavily protected 2nd Rd pick, maybe 2. Nothing more than that.

2.) 13 Jan 2023 22:16:10
Is there a reason why 2 teams that could have used a wing have both given up on Reddish?

Okay, Warriors fans, I myself am a Golden State follower and we are going to have a big problem this offseason.

Free Agents:

Kevin Durant (Player Option)
Stephen Curry
JaVale McGee
Zaza Pachulia
Shaun Livingston
David West
Andre Iguodala
Matt Barnes
Ian Clark
James Michael McAdoo

Even though it hurts me to say it, the warriors will be able to only resign 1-2 of their stars, preferably Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala and maybe retain some veterans and prospects (Ian Clark, Shaun Livingston, David West, JaVale McGee)


1.) 07 Mar 2017 05:17:55
Curry isn't going anywhere and will likely get a 5 year 207 million contract that he deserves after being a complete bargain the past few years (best any other team can offer is 4 years 135 mil) . They have his Bird rights so this isn't an issue at all and his contract has no bearing on Warriors flexibility this summer (unless he takes a massive pay cut) .

If Durant takes a 5 mill paycut and signs a one year 31M contract the Warriors can use Iguodala and Livingston's Bird rights to keep both them and sign Durant to a full max contract next season once they get his full Bird rights. He could be willing to do this since he did after all choose to go to a super team to win a title and 5 million could make a big difference with their chances.

If Durant wants the max now (which he may after an injury scare) it would mean that Warriors would have to renounce Bird rights for Livingston and Iguodala and wouldn't be able to bring them back unless they sign for basically minimum.

Warriors depending on how their season ends could opt to deal Thompson or Green to improve depth but I think that's unlikely and they are going to be deep in luxury tax regardless. Or Durant could decide to walk which I think is another unlikely scenario.

Warriors depth is going to continue to take a hit for foreseeable future where after next season they'll likely be paying Curry, Durant, Green and Thompson more than the 108M salary cap. They should always be able to nab David West type players willing to take pay cuts to play on their team tho.

2.) 08 Mar 2017 05:42:26
Don't worry to much. There are always good older players willing to take less at a chance at a title.

After trading away injured bigman Chrus Andersen to the Hornets this week,as well as previously aquiring Kyle Korver, the Cavaliers are in an interesting situation along with the trade deadline quickly approaching. The Cavaliers' new GM, LeBron James is determined to improve his championship-caliber roster in two areas:

Playmaker/ Backup Point Guard
Rim Protector/ Backup Center

If the Jusuf Nurkic-to the Blazers trade wouldn't have occured, the Cavs may have had the assets to bring in Nurkic to be a backup center to Tristan Thompson. Other current centers availiable: Jahlil Okafor, Andrew Bogut, Tarik Black, Kelly Olynyk, J.J. Hickson (FA), Cole Aldrich, and Tyson Chandler.

Okay. Most of you have probably heard the reports about the Cavs management, emphasizing that the need a backup point guard and/or a playmaker. Some current options out there are: Brandon Jennings, T.J. McConnell, Rajon Rondo, Ty Lawson, Mario Chalmers (FA), Norris Cole (FA), Kirk Heinrich (FA)' Jordan Farmar (FA)



1.) 14 Feb 2017 20:33:26
They certainly need to make moves. The Raptors recent acquisition of Ibaka should motivate them to do something. The value Portland got for Nurkic I'm mad Cavs didn't get him. The cavs cap situation makes it difficult for them to get a lot of those bigs with big salaries so options are definitely limited (I'd add Kosta Koufos to the list too) and it would most likely have to be a guy still on a rookie deal. I think they are after a defensive center so I don't think Okafor or Olynyk is their guy.

Same goes for point guard. Jennings would be a good cheap option as would Lawson. Then of course there is plenty of decent FA.

Ideally I think Cavs wanted to see what buyout season would yield (Their dream would be if Dallas bought out Dwill and Bogut) but with Raptors recent deal they may speed up the process and be more aggressive.

3 team trade between the Atlanta Hawks, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Utah Jazz.

UTA gets: Enes Kanter, Thabo Sefolosha, 2017 2nd OKC.

OKC gets: Paul Millsap, Tim Hardaway Jr.

ATL gets: Derrick Favors, Alec Burks, Alex Abrines, 2018 OKC 1st, 2017 UTA 2nd.

Schroder/ Delaney/ Williams
Burks/ Abrines/ Bembry
Bazemore/ Dunleavy/ Prince
Favors/ Humphries/ Scott
Howard/ Muscala/ Splitter

OKC:releases Josh Huestis and signs Josh Smith to a 1 yr min.
Westbrook/ Payne/ Christon
Oladipo/ Hardaway Jr/ Singler
Roberson/ Grant/ Morrow
Millsap/ Collison/ Smith
Adams/ Sabonis/ Lauvergne

Hill/ Exum/ Neto
Hood/ Sefolosha/ Mack
Hayward/ Johnson/ Ingles
Kanter/ Diaw/ Lyles
Gobert/ Withey/ Bolomboy


1.) 08 Jan 2017 20:00:00
Dumb for Utah

2.) 09 Jan 2017 10:24:57
Utah gave away Kanter for basically nothing I doubt they want him back especially for Favors. I think Millsap would be a good fit in OKC but I don't think Utah should be a part of the trade and OKC should just send Kanter to ATL and may have to add Sabonis (they could get Sefolosha back from Hawks too) .

I think Millsap would be a good fit in Utah too so maybe they cut out OKC and do a trade for Millsap centered around Favors.

To be honest, I did all of these in one trade on fanspo, but you can't have more than five teams. I would have included an Ayton trade to someone like Brooklyn or Chicago

CHI: DeAndre Ayton, Damion Lee

PHX: Nikola Vucevic, Coby White, 2023 Protected POR 1st, 2029 Top-5 Protected CHI 1st


BKN: DeAndre Ayton, Damion Lee

PHX: Nicolas Claxton, Joe Harris, Cam Thomas, 2027 PHI 1st, 2030 Protected BKN 1st.

You are out of your mind if you think the Grizzlies are trading Aldama for LeVert, let alone Aldama AND a first.

Everything is great for all teams. However, this is not possible, as Denver's first in 2023 is lottery-protected through 2025, and their 2025 pick is protected top 5 through 2027. This means that the Nuggets have no first-round picks they can trade except for 2029/ 2030.

NBA, according to SBnation, the new CBA will in fact have a new maximum roster size of 17, allowing teams to send 2 players to the d-league on two-way contracts and they can call them up if someone gets injured or is doing badly.
