Nuggets send: Michael Porter Jr., Malik Beasley, Paul Millsap, and the Nugget’s 2020 and 2022 unprotected first round pick.

Raptors send: Pascal Siakam, and Kyle Lowry.

The Nuggets cash in on their young prospects with upside to address their biggest need, they get a 4 who can guard big wings and is extremely switchable on the perimeter. He also compliments Jokic really well as a lean springier guy who can help block shots. He’s young, cheap, and the type of player who may be the most valuable in the NBA. They also get Kyle Lowry as a guy who brings experience, and all the skills that let him thrive in an offball situation, defense, shooting and passing, plus he’s an expiring so if it doesn’t work out he’s gone and you don't have to worry about some age stuff. This create a pretty sexy small-ish line up of
1. Lowry
2. Jamal Murray
3. Gary Harris
4. Pascal Siakam
5. Jokic
That matches up a lot better with a modern team like the Clippers imo.

The Raptors do a true blow up following Kawai’s departure. Why you cash in on Pascal now is 2 fold:
1. Him not being a lead scoring threat means that he’s not really a guy go center a rebuild around but Pascal and the rest of the team probably are too good to get that scorer in the draft.
2. If this is a true long term rebuild, Siakam is already 25, which while it isn’t young, if this is a 4 year rebuild Siakam will substantially lose his value by the time the window comes back open. Instead you get the crazy high upside of two 20 years olds in MPJ (who needs to be on ball and probably needs a year of learning on ball and sucking) and Beasley who’s incredibly young and athletic enough where he could become more than a 3&D guy. The Raptors are going to suck w/ o Lowry, Pascal, and Kawai, and the Raps get an extra first next year which probably won’t be worth very much but they also get an unprotected pick in the vaunted double draft of 2022, which is an amazing asset. Moving forward there is a real chance the Raptors would be set on the wing at
2. Beasley
3. OG
4. Porter jr.

And the mission in the draft with their own picks and the Raptors picks is to find a young PG and C.

Denver just traded their 2020 pick to OKC for J. Grant. Moves Gallinari into the starting 4 spot.


2.) 08 Jul 2019 16:37:36
@Fredman In my defense I posted this before that went public. I’ll count this as a win, clearly Denver agreed about the kind of guy they needed in the 4 spot since Grant and Pascal are the same “type” of player.


3.) 08 Jul 2019 17:44:29
Grant is not pascal of offense or playmaking.


4.) 08 Jul 2019 18:49:29
They got the same "type" for much less of a price paid. That in itself is a win.


5.) 09 Jul 2019 02:58:47
Can’t Grant play the 3? He is 6’9” and 220.if he can guard four positions then he can play the 3 with Milsap. am I missing something there?


6.) 09 Jul 2019 14:21:33
terrible trade for Raptors if they aren't willing to trade siakim for PG13 then won't trade him for this.


7.) 09 Jul 2019 23:36:36
@Shiller well yeah, hence the price difference but they are both weakside shot blockers who are mobile enough to hang outside.

Mavs send Tim Hardaway Jr.
Thunder send Westbrook

Mavs.

I think it can’t be over emphasized how important it is for the Clippers to beat the Lakers to Kawai. Getting a Lebron stopper would really be an on the court symbol for the Clippers standing up to the Lakers and it would continue to engrain an identity in the Clippers franchise. Having said that, Kawai’s Laker interest and apparent call to KD pre-FA has illustrated that Kawai does significantly value having a co-star. If that’s the case the Clippers HAVE to get one. Therefore.

Clippers send: SGA and the 2021 Heat 1st round pick, Danillo Gallinari
Clippers receive: Bradley Beal

Wizards send: Bradley Beal
Wizards receive: SGA and the 2021 Heat 1st round pick, Andrew Wiggins, Josh Okogie, 2021 Timberwolves pick Top 4 protected.

Timberwolves send: Andrew Wiggins, Josh Okogie, 2021 1st round pick top 4 protected
Timberwolves receive: Danillo Gallinari

Basically, I’m sure the Clippers have already investigated this but were probably hoping to hold out either SGA or the pick and plug Shamet in instead. But now it’s crunch time, the Clippers got to make a move and concede to giving both pieces. Then the Wizards know they are going to suck and pass Gallinari on to Minnie to get the young pieces that come with taking on Wiggins deal. Wizards get an absolute hall for this deal.

Clippers:
Beverly
Shamet
Beal
Kawai
Zubac
All the spacing Plus the elite bench

Wizards:
SGA
Okogie
Wiggins
Jabari Parker
Mahimi

Wolves:
Jeff Teague
Culver
Covington
Gallinari
KAT.

I like it, excellent and creative idea. It’s a tough pill for the clippers to swallow, but if it means you’re getting kawhi then you have to do it.


2.) 02 Jul 2019 10:05:59
There’s no way the wizards are taking on Wiggins in a Beal deal and the T wolves aren’t giving up enough to get off him.


3.) 02 Jul 2019 15:09:12
Clippers aren't giving up Shai. They will give up Gallinari, Shamet, Thornwell, Wallace, both Miami picks, and one of their future 1sts. If Robinson needs to be thrown in, they would do that too.


4.) 02 Jul 2019 16:35:44
I understand the wolves want to get rid of Wiggins’ contract, but at the cost of Josh Okogie and two firsts? No thank you.


5.) 02 Jul 2019 16:36:07
1 first. My point stands.


6.) 02 Jul 2019 16:52:41
One guy says that’s too high of a cost to get rid of Wiggins, another says it’s not enough. Maybe splitting the difference is an appropriate price.

And GPack, none of that gets the Beal deal done, SGA is the centerpiece, the Wizards can’t make a deal and not even get the best young asset on the team they are trading with.

Everyone in the league is saying Minnesota is showing confidence in being able to clear space and sign DLo. But it seems ridiculously expensive for them to get off Wiggins or Dieng’s deal. Maybe this is the deal instead.

Wolves send Jeff Teague and Josh Okogie
Lakers send Mo Wagner

This uses the Lakers cap space, but with the amount of cap space across the league there’s no way the Lakers are getting a star for 23 million, and I think getting Teague at 19 is better value than Beverly at 15 PLUS this deal gets you Okogie. That’s a whole back court. Plus the Lakers would have a couple million leftover to find another competent guy, and the 4mil exception, then your up to 7 guys before you start going through the minimums. Teague fits well with the team as a guy who’s comfortable as the lead guard and a starter quality spacer. Okogie has elite defense potential and can shoot the 3.

Jalex

1.) 25 Jun 2019 13:39:43
This move still puts Minny short of a rookie max slot for Dlo primarily because of the cap hold now inplaced by Culver's guarenteed contract.

Minny would have to move both Teague and Deing in some kind of salary dump move. Not sure if that is doable.

Jazz send Derrick Favors
Celtics send 20th pick and Semi Ojeleye

Make no mistake, Favors is a center and a pretty good one on a fair contract. IMO this is a better option then what you’ll end up paying in FA.

Something Silly I came up with

Hornets send: Batum, Monk, and picks12 and 2020 unprotected first.
Hornets receive: Gary Harris and Plumlee

Nuggets send: Gary Harris and Plumlee
Nuggets receive: Picks 9, 12, and Hornets 2020 first; plus Monk, and John Wall.

Wizards send John Wall and pick 9.
Nuggets receive: Batum

The Nuggets get 2 lottery this pick, an unprotected pick this year and Monk for taking Wall’s contract and losing Harris. Nuggets select Brandon Clarke at 9 who’s the perfect fit next to Jokic, he can guard wings and combo forwards because of agility and strength plus on offense he’s lethal inside and as an offball cutter. At 12 they take next BPA.

Hornets turn one of the worst contracts in the league into a quality starter on an affordable who compliments Charlotte well.

Wizards cut 2 years not to mention about 16mil less per the first 2 years, and get a guy who can play more offball to fit with other players better.

Jalex

1.) 13 Jun 2019 01:41:35
I like it. If Denver can draft Clarke at 9 and other defensive wing at 12 to replace Harris presence then it works out great.


2.) 13 Jun 2019 02:21:03
Hornets say no.


3.) 13 Jun 2019 03:16:02
Isnt mpj the pf of the future?


4.) 13 Jun 2019 23:12:23
MPJ will be the SF especially if they retain Milsap. Den is very thin there with Torrey Craig the only true SF.

Real Potential Blockbuster Here

Magic send Dakari Johnson

Clippers send Jaquan Evans.

Someone has to trade for Eric Bledsoe. right?

Maybe Marcus Smart and the 2019 Clippers first round pick for Bledsoe if that Westbrook trade doesn't happen.

Jalex

1.) 19 Jul 2016 05:38:39
I do agree that Marcus Smart is perfect for Phoenix age and fit wise beside Devin Booker.


2.) 19 Jul 2016 15:54:36
I just don't see the need for that swap. Bledsoe isn't that close to Westbrook in terms of production and Bledsoe also wouldn't come in right away and start over Thomas and would assume the same role as Smart has. Bledsoe is also smaller so he wouldn't be able to stack up as well against 2-guards like Smart does.


3.) 20 Jul 2016 07:48:55
Don't think Phx needs to rush to deal Bledsoe since he is under contract for like 3 more years. I think Smart is a very similar style pg just a younger, bigger version of Bledsoe. Both are very athletic and great defenders just at 26 Bledsoe is further along in his development and was putting up the best numbers of his career before going down to injury last season.

I think PHX could find a better deal next summer trading him to that is more desperate after they lose out of Westbrook.

He would be a significant upgrade for Celtics but even though he is one of best defensive pg in the league at 6ft 1 and not being great off ball as a shooter don't think he and IT could play together much making him a poor fit. They aren't giving up much tho so if I were them i'd take the deal and trust Stevens to figure how to make it work.


4.) 20 Jul 2016 15:18:57
Bledsoe and I. T playing together would be bad defensively. M. Smart has the height to guard some 2's.

I think Dallas should throw their hat in the ring. I think they’re currently pretty clearly on the outside of the West’s playoff picture, but they’ve given all of their picks away so they have no downside to accelerating the process. If can Russ can do anything, it’s manufacture regular season wins. The team is super spaced out, so it would give Russ lots of room to work with. The Mavs are team that’s kind of tapped out on assets so they have no trade ammo to bring in a player of Russ’ pedigree normally. If the salary is on the backside of the contract is scary, there is no owner in the league who has discussed how he’s not afraid to spend money than Cuban. Finally, maybe the biggest point, I don’t think Russ would hamper Luka’s development due to Luka’s own pedigree, and that while Russ is frustrating his track record for what he does for his teammates is pretty freaking good, plus this is where having one of the most established coaches and one notoriously tough on Point Guards comes into effect.

Spurs would rather move Derozan than White. They think they have the backcourt of the future between him and Murray. Then you can look for a front court piece by moving Derozan, who’s going into a contract year.
