Cleveland trades: Pick #2 | Larry Nance Jr. | Dante Exum

Indiana trades: Domantas Sabonis | Goga Bitadze

Why? Cleveland consolidates it's best asset, the 2nd pick in this draft, for an established big man that can stretch the floor and a young big with potential. The Pacers get the 2nd pick in the draft, along with a great big man that can stretch the floor in Nance.

Sabonis is a better fit than Turner so if Indiana does trade one of their centers I think it will be Turner. Also, Sabonis is not worth that much.

2.) 21 May 2020 15:21:39
I agree with OnTop's first statement, but not his second.

Trade #1:
Cleveland trades: Tristan Thompson / Brandon Knight

Philadelphia trades: Tobias Harris

Why? Cleveland gets a star to pair with Sexton and Garland. Philadelphia is over the tax next season so they may be looking to dump someone.

Trade #2:
Cleveland trades: John Henson

Miami trades: Meyers Leonard

Why? Cleveland gets a starting caliber big for cheap. Miami saves a ton of money in taxes.

PG: Darius Garland / Dante Exum / Matthew Dellavedova
SG: Collin Sexton / Kevin Porter Jr.
SF: Tobias Harris / Cedi Osman / Dylan Windler
PF: Kevin Love / Larry Nance Jr.
C: Meyers Leonard / Ante Zizic
Coach: John Beilein.


1.) 16 Jan 2020 06:07:26
What? dump Harris like that?

2.) 16 Jan 2020 11:00:59
The dumping would happen in the offseason. Not while making a championship run.



14 Jan 2020 19:38:30
Cleveland Cavaliers trade: Kevin Love

Minnesota Timberwolves trade: Robert Covington and Gorgui Dieng

Why? Cleveland gets a solid player in Covington. Minnesota takes a chance on Love.


1.) 14 Jan 2020 19:41:24
This is really, really bad for Minnesota.

2.) 14 Jan 2020 19:42:18
Why does Minny need to "take a chance" on Love? He is going to take them somewhere? Plus that Love-KAT pairing is deadly on defense.

3.) 14 Jan 2020 20:13:24
Wiggens for Love or nothing is perfect.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 06:36:22
I prefer both Covington and Dieng to Love.

Btw, I just listened to a podcast and learned RoCo was the #1 player in the NBA in DefRtg over the last month, and since Dieng has been starting, the Wolves as a whole have been the #1 Defense since that date. They played a weaker schedule, but that was 12 games. Dieng has been blowing up as a starter, averaging 15 and 8, shooting 43% from 3, with steals and blocks. He had a 20 RB game a couple weeks back.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 06:37:39
Plus, Love is already pouty. Think how he would behave to be traded back to MIN?

His teammates better be ready for a lot of balls whipped at their faces!

Cleveland trades: Kevin Love and Matthew Dellavedova.

Charlotte trades: 12th pick, Bizmax Biyombo and Marvin "Starvin" Williams.

Why for Cleveland? Get a decent pick for Love.

Why for Charlotte? Acquire a star to pair with Kemba.

Cleveland trades: J. R. Smith.

Miami trades: 13th pick and James Johnson.

Why for Cleveland? Get another lotto.

Why for Miami? Obtain salary relief.


Make it happen Altman!

#5: DeAndre Hunter
#12: Keldon Johnson
#13: Bol Bol
#26: Moses Brown.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 02:40:42
Jr isn't worth a pick or player.

3.) 14 Jun 2019 02:51:29
You can get Brown in mid 2nd round.

4.) 14 Jun 2019 12:59:05
Shiller. It’s the money you can save with jr. not jr himself.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 18:18:39
Rkenne, if its a pre June 30th trade so you can waive JR's non guarenteed salary for 2020, then maybe. But #13 is way, way too high a pick for that. #26 would have to go Miami to even begin to have a discussion about it.

6.) 14 Jun 2019 18:33:31
Michael Jordan wants to reduce their payroll. Taking on Love's $30mm contract wouldn't do that. The Cavs like Love.



30 Oct 2018 02:03:20
Trade #1:

Cleveland trades: Jordan Clarkson | J. R. Smith | Tristan Thompson | Kyle Korver

Miami trades: Hassan Whiteside | Dion Waiters | James Johnson

Why for Cleveland? Upgrade their center position, absorb a couple bad contracts.

Why for Miami? Acquire a young combo guard with upside, an expiring contract in Smith, a decent center in Tristan Thompson and a solid sharp shooter on a decent contract.

Trade #2:

Cleveland trades: Kevin Love

Milwaukee trades: Kris Middleton | Tony Snell

Why for Cleveland? Swap Kevin Love with solid 3 and D wing and another solid 3 and D wing in Tony Snell.

Why for Milwaukee? Acquire perhaps the best stretch four in the NBA.


1.) 30 Oct 2018 15:08:46
I believe the Bucks would pass. Love is currently not playing? Plus, Milwaukee seems to be doing alright without the "Best Stretch Four In The NBA" Question is why isn't Cleveland?

Cleveland Cavaliers sign Jordan Farmar and J. J. Hickson.

Jordan got posterized.

Philadelphia 76ers offseason:

Trade Jahlil Okafor to Boston for the #3 pick and Avery Bradley.

Trade Carl Landry, Hollis Thompson and pick #24 to a team willing to take the final year of his contract.

Sign Dario Saric 4 yrs 60m.

#1 pick: (SF) Brandon Ingram
#3 pick: (PG) Jamal Murray
#26 pick: (SG) DeAndre Bembry

PG: Jamal Murray / Kendall Marshall / T. J. McConnell
SG: Avery Bradley / Nick Stauskas / DeAndre Bembry
SF: Brandon Ingram / Robert Covington / Jerami Grant
PF: Dario Saric / Rashaun Holmes / Christian Wood
C: Nerlens Noel / Joel Embiid.


1.) 27 May 2016 00:03:26
I don't think Celtics give up that much for Okafor. I don't think they should even give up just #3 for him since I don't believe he is a good fit. I don't understand why 76ers would do second trade either. 76ers have plenty of cap space and I don't think they'll attract any decent FA so why give up assets to get rid of a contract that isn't even that bad and in its final year.



26 May 2016 20:53:01
Philly offseason:

Trade Okafor and #26 pick to Boston for #3 pick and Avery Bradley.

#1 pick: SF Brandon Ingram

#3 pick: PG Jamal Murray

#24 pick: PF Thon Maker

PG: Jamal Murray / Kendall Marshall / T. J. McConnell
SG: Avery Bradley / Nick Stauskas / Hollis Thompson
SF: Brandon Ingram / Robert Covington / Jerami Grant
PF: Thon Maker / Rashaun Holmes / Christian Wood
C: Nerlens Noel / Joel Embiid.


1.) 26 May 2016 22:28:00
Can we like stop with these Okafor for the 3rd pick plus a player trades? Yes there were talks but Okafor does not fit our system and we will not give up more than just the 3rd pick for him. Danny has a mind set where he has to feel like he wins the trade. So there is no way the Sixers get the 3rd pick AND any of Smart, Bradley or Crowder.

2.) 27 May 2016 00:12:57
Okafor is a throwback big man. His strong back to the basket offensive skill set is extinct in this league since it eats up clock and slows down offense. Since league is becoming more guard driven big men are more valuable that are athletic can play defense, especially quick enough to guard pick and roll and able to switch onto perimeter players for a little bit and rebound neither of which are Okafor's strong suit. Their offense This doesn't mean Okafor isn't a good player and will never improve on these things but most established teams like Celtics aren't built to support his style of play. Thus I see Okafor being most effective and valuable to a team that's deep in the rebuilding phase and can get pieces to fit around Okafor (since he has the makings of an all-star caliber center and prolific scorer) rather than the Celtics who are trying to fit the missing piece to their puzzle.

3.) 27 May 2016 17:15:09
Personally, I agree with Jaw entirely. I think Okafor is a solid franchise center, i do not believe he will be a top 3-4 center in the league. Not bad but not elite. He just doesn't have the potential to dominate both sides of the ball like a Towns or Davis. And I would choose Jordan over him. And Porzingis. And a few other centers.

Even still. IF the celtics took a gamble and did the 3 for okafor, that's a big if. to then assume the celtics include bradley for a late 1st is nonsense.

The sixers would be lucky to snag just the 3 for okafor. To expect other benefits in the trade doesn't seem realistic. Its not a match for either team.

4.) 27 May 2016 18:09:49
Thank you guys. But people don't get that at all and they will continue to post the SAME EXACT TRADE each and every day.

5.) 27 May 2016 18:45:32
@larry: NO! We must as a group post at least one Dangelo Russell for jimmy butler, one victor oladipo for Paul George, one Oka4 for #3, and one Zach Lavine and the #5 for whichever rumoured trading block fodder captivaes us that day, every day. If we don't, WHO WILL? So please stop being selfish and work on a #3 for Oak post immediately. Think of the children Larry, THE CHILDREN!

6.) 27 May 2016 19:34:38
Has anyone mentioned Okafor to the Celtics today?

7.) 27 May 2016 19:59:04
Yes! JJ_PR did. its on page 2 now.

8.) 27 May 2016 21:00:50
and he just posted another one too.

9.) 27 May 2016 21:41:49
I know. Tho in his defense I'm pretty sure if you post something here enough times it automatically happens in real life.

10.) 28 May 2016 00:28:59
That would explain bensimmons, drainer and true bigot. Guess durant, lebron and Chris Paul will all be playing for the vet minimum for the magic the mavs and the lakers next year.



21 May 2016 01:47:01
Lakers - Houston

Lakers trade: #2 pick, Russell and Randle

Houston trades: James Harden.


1.) 21 May 2016 23:46:50
I hate that trade for the Lakers but if I'm Houston I'm jumping all on that. They don't have much outside of Harden and by dealing him they'd have a young core of Russell, Ingram/ Simmons, Randle and Capela going forward. They could also resign Jones and DMo.

I think this is fair for all teams. I find it funny when people think the Dubs will use the 1st pick just to dump Wiggins. In this trade they at least get some value.

Would you do Sexton instead of Garland?

Minnesota hangs up the phone laughing. They'll probably move Covington and Dieng for D'Angelo Russell.
