I don't know the value of Siakam this offseason, but the Blazers clearly need help.

Blazers: F Pascal Siakam, #13

Raptors: G Anfernee Simons, F Nassir Little, F Trendon Watford, #3, 2026 Protected MEM 2nd, 2028 GSW 2nd


1.) 18 May 2023 18:39:29
That is too much.



05 May 2023 15:07:04
Bucks: Josh Giddey, Lu Dort, Aleksej Pokusevski, Kenrich Williams, and 4 first-round picks (2 unprotected, 2 protected)

Thunder: Giannis Antetokounmpo, two second-round picks

Lineups (not including free agents)
Portis Jr

Holmgren/Jaylin Williams

Seems like Chet would be a needed piece here.

Don't know DeRozan's value, but here's a Nets trade.

Nets: DeMar DeRozan, Tony Bradley.

Bulls: Royce O'Neale, Day'Ron Sharpe, Joe Harris, 2025 MIA Protected 2nd, 2027 PHI 1st (Top-8 Protected), 2027 DAL 2nd, 2029 DAL 1st, 2029 DAL 2nd.

The Bulls waive Marko Simonovic.


O'Neale/Williams/Jones Jr

Cam thomas at the 1? Hows that gonna work.



08 Feb 2023 14:21:55
Crowder gets out of PHX

Suns: Robert Covington, 2024 LAC 2nd (Top-45 Protected), 2025 LAC 2nd (Top-40 Protected)

Clippers: Jae Crowder




1.) 08 Feb 2023 18:04:00
Covington sucks and Crowder is no better.

2.) 08 Feb 2023 23:42:32
Clippers offering Crowder an extension? The main reason he is not playing in Phoenix is becuse he wants to know he has a future with a team.

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.

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.

Detroit doesn't have a lottery-protected 1st to trade right now.

Considering that Grimes was the reason that they didn't trade for Donovan Mitchell, it's hard to see them trade him for Jaylen Brown.

You are out of your mind if you think that you get Embiid with the awful Bertans contract and only two first-round picks.

Just. why?

S&T can't include another player. Additionally, even if that did work, the salary of Bertans would make the trade impossible.

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.
