Cleveland receives: Lauri Markkanen, Walker Kessler, Collin Sexton and 10th pick in this draft.
Utah receives: Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen

Why?
Cleveland fixes their frontcourt by putting Markkanen next to Mobley, Kessler would be a great back-up, Sexton is a great bench player and with the 10th pick, we can draft someone like Devin Carter.
Utah moves on from Markkanen as they try to become relevant again. Garland and Allen give them two foundational pieces to build a winner.

This trade only goes through if Markkanen accepts a contract extension as part of the transaction.

Why is the team giving up easily the best player in the trade also giving up a lottery pick? Seems backwards.


2.) 24 May 2024 16:28:11
Markkanen > Garland > Allen > Sexton > Kessler > 10th pick

I think it's a fair deal.


3.) 26 May 2024 16:25:24
There’s a massive gap between Markkanen and Garland. And star value is just way higher than good starter value. Two good starters don’t really equal a star.

I think the value is closer if Markkanen isn’t in the trade. Two moderate upgrades at the cost of the 10th pick. I don’t think it’s the path either team would want to go, but I think value makes more sense.

Cleveland gets: Jaden McDaniels, Naz Reid and Mike Conley
Minnesota gets: Darius Garland and Ty Jerome

Why?
Cleveland adds size and depth.
Minnesota gets their point guard of the future and shaves significant salary.

JJ_PR

1.) 17 May 2024 18:42:53
No way from Minnesota.


2.) 17 May 2024 20:24:37
It may work sending Mitchell.

Cavs get: Dejounte Murray and Jalen Johnson
Hawks get: Devin Vassell and all of their firsts returned (2025, 2026 swap, 2027)
Spurs get: Darius Garland

Cavs do this to fix their backcourt and add a solid wing in the process.
Hawks do this to fix their backcourt and get their picks back.
Spurs get their point guard of the future.

Hire Kenny Atkinson.

It would be a terrible trade for the Hawks just to get their picks back for Murray but you gonna add their rising star Jalen Johnson? ? Stop the madness. The Hawks are not rebuilding like the spurs were trading assets for picks.

Cleveland receives: Coby White, Ayo Dosunmu, Jevon Carter & '24 frp
Chicago receives: Donovan Mitchell

Why?
Cleveland gets something good out of Mitchell.
Chicago does this as long as Mitchell agrees to an extension.

Cleveland gets: Herb Jones, Jordan Hawkins, 2025 top 5 protected first (via Pels) & 2027 first (via Bucks)
New Orleans gets: Jarrett Allen

Why?
Cleveland moves Mobley to full time center, & they get a good frontcourt partner, a prospect, & two picks.
New Orleans gets their center of the future, one of the more underrated players in the league.

1.) 11 Apr 2024 10:21:31
Big fan of Allen but that's a huge overpay. Jones has a lot of value.


2.) 11 Apr 2024 16:20:15
Massive overpay. Swap Jones out for Daniels or Nance.

How was my ESPN fantasy basketball salary cap draft? Please rate my team from 1-10, 7 or higher is good. Thinking about trading Tre Jones for a Center. I thought players could be listed in multiple positions.

Thanks for taking your time to rate my team. Appreciate everyone's feedback.

Do you think I can win the championship with that roster?

NO. PLAYER OFFER AMOUNT
20 Chet Holmgren OKC, PF $23
25 Mikal Bridges Bkn, SF $38
29 Andrew Wiggins GS, SF $5
32 Zion Williamson NO, PF $22
36 Russell Westbrook LAC, PG $6
38 Donovan Mitchell Cle, SG $37
40 Marcus Smart Mem, SG $3
45 Darius Garland Cle, PG $25
56 Tre Jones SA, PG $2
66 Aaron Gordon Den, PF $3
69 Spencer Dinwiddie Bkn, SG $7
71 Evan Mobley Cle, PF $12
87 Jarrett Allen Cle, C $4.

I would say it's pretty average so 5.


2.) 31 Aug 2023 21:27:01
do the numbers mean you took zion 32nd for 22$? seems kinda odd you didnt get a pick on the top 20, but maybe im just misinformed on the format.

I think this is a super solid team:

Holmgren/ Allen
Zion/ Mobley/ Gordon
Bridges/ Wiggins
Mitchell/ Smart/ Dinwiddie
Garland/ Westbrook/ Jones

Lots of good depth. Only thing is you don't have a top-10 star, maybe Mitchell can be that guy? IDK


depth 9/ 10
firepower 8/ 10
shooting 8/ 10
defense 8.5/ 10
injury prone 6/ 10

overall 39.5/ 50 = 7.8 / 10.

Please remove the one that was posted & replace it with the last one I sent. Thanks & sorry for the inconvenience.

Wow, that was a wild trade deadline!

Who do y'all have as winners?

I got the Nets. They got the most out of their superstars in terms of value. I think they'll still be competitive, they have some very interesting pieces & a decent coach.

JJ_PR

1.) 10 Feb 2023 02:48:03
I like the Net, Lakers, and Blazers.


2.) 10 Feb 2023 14:21:18
Not really sure what Portland accomplished. Got a first for flipping Hart into Thybulle? Seemed pretty "meh" to me.


3.) 10 Feb 2023 19:28:08
It wasn’t great, but I’m much happier they decided to turn vets into assets than assets into vets. They weren’t contending. Might as well stock up and see what the offseason can bring.


4.) 11 Feb 2023 03:26:45
Hart is decent but like Bmiller said they aren’t contending. I very intrigued to see Reddish get pt and an opportunity to get steady minutes. I assume he will start at the 3 or be a major bench contributor. Thybulle also adds youth and elite defense.

Donovan Mitchell scored 71 points in a close overtime victory over the Bulls!

Historic performance, first ever 70-10 game. He was 2 rebounds shy of a triple double.

JJ_PR

1.) 03 Jan 2023 16:36:09
Arguably the 2nd best regular season game of all time.


2.) 03 Jan 2023 21:32:28
Wilt's 100 and Kobe's 81. Which one is not making the cut, NBA16?


3.) 04 Jan 2023 00:05:51
I honestly have it slightly over Kobe’s

71/ 8/ 11 FG:65% 3pt:46% 20FTM

81/ 6/ 2 FG:60% 3pt:53% 18FTM

Cavs/ Bulls game was also very close and Mitchell wasn’t left open as the Raps did Kobe in 4th.


4.) 04 Jan 2023 22:50:26
Idk if Wilts can ever be topped. 100 & 25, and no telling how many blocks (prolly had a triple double)

The Sacramento Kings did something that went under the radar. They traded a '24 first round pick that is protected through 2026, which means they can't trade any first-round picks until '28 as long as the pick hasn't conveyed.

That is a smart move for a franchise with a shaky past. It eliminates any chance of them mortgaging their future for a star.

We've seen teams trade all their future firsts end in disaster, like the Nets-Boston transaction.

JJ_PR

1.) 09 Dec 2022 23:22:01
Ya it’s great! Fart noise.


2.) 10 Dec 2022 03:08:09
Yea, the Kings GM has done a great job getting Sabonis, getting expiring contracts, flipping those contracts + a protected first for Huerter, and then signing Monk away from the competition (Lakers) as well as hiring Mike Brown away from the competition (Golden State) .

The Kings seriously need to extend GM Monte McNair's contract that expires at the end of this season. Then focus on extensions for Sabonis and Monk.

It seems like the only "poor" move the GM has done may have been signing Rashaun Holmes to that 4 yr/ $48 mil (last year a Player Option) contract. But if that is the only bad move, we can live with that.

I seriously think that McNair could be in running for Executive of the Year. GM Danny Ainge and David Griffin/ Trajan Langdon would be the competition in my book.


3.) 10 Dec 2022 18:49:37
@Fredman honestly, $12 million per season is pretty reasonable. They can easily move on from him if they don't want him.

Not a fan of Brown, I'd rather look elsewhere. The fit with Mitchell isn't great either.

Hard pass from Cleveland. Wiggins is one of the worst contracts in the league.

This is horrible for Toronto. Flynn is their back-up point guard, they're left with no back-ups for Schroder after this trade.

Mike Bibby was a big part of those fun Sacramento Kings teams. I don't know if he had all-star accolades, but he certainly passed the eye test.

Harris+Ross+Franz Wagner+Return Chicago

That's a massive overpay. I wouldn't trade Wagner straight up for LaVine.

The Mavs need to do something fast, or else Luka is going to demand a trade. Losing Brunson was a big blow to that franchise.
