Bogdanovic/Holiday
Middleton/Thanasis/James

Lopez/Leonard

Lakers: Ibaka via MLE, Matthews vet min

Lebron/Dennis

Knicks moves I want to see

Nash
Jordan
Pippen
Oakley
Ewing.


2.) 17 Nov 2020 14:34:18
Bucks can't use the MLE cause they are hard capped.


3.) 17 Nov 2020 14:49:59
Hard cap at around $135 mil with Bucks currently at around $123 mil. But they have 5 roster spaces to fill with that remaining salary amount. So pretty much they are left with nothing but Vet Mins to fill out the roster/ bench.

Houston/Chicago

Houston: Lavine, Carter Jr, Young, 4th pick, 2021 1st round pick, 2022 pick swap, 2023 1st round pick, 2025 1st round pick lottery protected

Chicago: Harden, Tucker

The Bulls needs to have a face of the franchise which they never had since Derrick Rose. Harden can instantly change the Bulls and start competing again under Donovan. Meanwhile, Rockets trade Harden in the east and get plenty in return. They can still try to compete since their picks are not with them anymore so they have nothing to lose

Rockets roster
draft pick: Deni Avdija SF/G

Westbrook-Rivers-Clemons
Lavine-Gordon
Avdija-House-McLemore
Covington-Young
Carter Jr-Hartenstein

Bulls roster
free agent: Saric, WCS min, Teague-MLE

White-Teague-Arcidiacono
Harden-Satoransky
Porter jr-Hutchinson
Tucker-Saric
Markkanen-Gafford-WCS

Hornets/Sixers/Wizards

Hornets get Ben Simmons & Al Horford
- I think it's a smart move to deal the 3rd pick to land a star like Ben Simmons even if it means taking Al Horford. If they say no to this kind of deal, it's dumb because no one is going to Charlotte and their chance to get a star is this

Simmons
Graham
Bridges
Washington
Horford

Sixers get Beal & Rozier
- get a new backcourt duo who fits in better with Embiid

Rozier
Beal
Richardson
Harris
Embiid

Wizards get 3rd pick (Cha), 21st pick (Phi), 2021 1st (Phi), 2022 1st with protection (Cha), Matisse Thybulle, Nic Batum (exp)
- Get plenty of building pieces if they are trading Beal

Wall
Ball (3rd)
Thybulle/Okoro (9th)
Hachimura
Bryant

McDonalds

1.) 10 Nov 2020 06:21:00
Not even 1st pick and 2nd pick together are equal to Simmons.


2.) 10 Nov 2020 14:06:00
Wizards not trading Beal , wall is finically health. They going resign Bertans, add piece and make good draft, they will be top 5 team in eastern conference.


 

 

09 Nov 2020 01:07:37
Atlanta/Wizards

Atlanta - Beal

Wizards - 6th pick/ Huerter / Hunter / 2021 & 2023 1st

Hawks wants to win while Wizards need good rebuilding pieces

Young
Beal
Reddish
Collins
Capela

looks like an eastern playoff teams and has some ability to pull a playoff upset. They just need to add some good bench players

Wizards trade #6+#9+Huerter to Minnesota for #1 to draft Edwards? or if not, just select Hayes & Vassell

Wall
Edwards
Hunter
Hachimura
Bryant

or

Wall/Hayes
Huerter/Brown
Hunter/Vassell
Hachimura
Bryant

McDonalds

1.) 09 Nov 2020 10:07:17
It is a good package. if wizards decide to rebuild they should aim this kind of trade.


2.) 09 Nov 2020 13:54:43
I think a Hawk’s fan will always want to give less while a Wizard’s will always want more. I would do a similar trade. Take Hunter out. Add some protection to 21 1st.


3.) 10 Nov 2020 14:09:04
Washington are not any rebuild ok . They not trading Beal . Wall is Finally health . They will be a top 5 team in eastern conference.

I thought we cannot do sign and trades with other player? How does the Kings send Bogdanovic s&t and Justin James to Bucks?

McDonalds

1.) 17 Nov 2020 12:56:03
Officially may be seperate trades. Not sure all the pieces are accurately reported yet. Feel like the Milwuakee pieces are "low" for Bogdanovich. Maybe on of the firsts is going to Sac while Justin James goes to New Orleans who are light on SGs/ wings.


2.) 17 Nov 2020 16:58:56
I've seen trade proposals on The Athletic that include players with S&T players. recent article had trades of both FVV and Ibaka paired with Norm Powell.
They also suggest that an FVV S&T would be complicated since FVV will be getting a raise bigger than 20%. they say the Raptors can only count FVV salary as half (10M if he signs 4yr/ 80M) while the other team has to take in the full 20M. makes matching near impossible.

Is Giannis better than Kawhi? How?

McDonalds

1.) 10 Sep 2020 05:15:46
Today? I’d take Kawhi in a 7 game series if you offered me one.

If I get one for the next 10 years it’s Giannis. He’s more valuable due to age. The idea that he’s still 2-3 years away from his prime means he still has a lot of room for growth. I think his peak eclipses Kawhi by a good amount.


2.) 11 Sep 2020 00:08:24
I’d say his prime isn’t much of an improvement from what it is now. His upside is way better than he is now but the only way he can get better is in his shooting which is bound to improve but it’s unlikely it will improve by much.

Kawhi just has a type of skill that only all time greats have. I’m not saying he’s currently one of the best ever, what I’m saying is his ability to hit clutch jumpers and to defend with such grit is a gift among the greats. Giannis can definitely defend and is a beast on offense but I’m not sure he has that same grit or sheer ability to win when it matters.


3.) 11 Sep 2020 02:01:48
Very laughable thinking Giannis over Kawhi. Kawhi is possibly on his way to being finals mvp with 3rd different team will be 1st ever. One of 3 to do it w 2 teams (LeBron kareem) and he and Jordan are only two to win finals mvp and defensive player of the year. Put some respect on his name. Giannis just got bounced in the second round of the weaker East with no LeBron, and is proving he will not be the best player on any finals winning team. Giannis more in the category of Harden as great regular season player, hasn’t shown any sign of having a clutch gene at all. Great players have that, even early in his career Kawhi got the finals mvp (not arguing he was better than Duncan at the time but he rose the the occasion when he was called to do so)


4.) 11 Sep 2020 02:08:36
If you’re saying Giannis’ peak will be better by a good amount you’re basically saying he will be the best player of all time, which is a huge joke. Dude has to defer to Middleton is the 4th quarter because he is just more athletic than everyone on the floor, but can’t do anything outside of the paint. Amazing how much attention and d*** riding he gets as basically a 7 foot Westbrook😂😂. Down 3-0 to a 5 seed Kawhi would never. Switch giannis and kawhi this year Bucks are 12-0 easy walk to the finals and are favored against the Lakers. Clips would probs be in a 7 game series with Nuggets and definitely lose to Lakers easily after.


5.) 11 Sep 2020 14:46:44
Everything you said about Giannis was said about Lebron when he was 25. No clutch gene (the dumbest argument ever), can’t shoot, blah blah.

Yeah, if you switch a 25 year old superstar with a 30 year old superstar you probably have more playoff success. That’s been true forever.

Is it insane to say that a guy that’s a two time MVP at 25 has a chance to be one of the greatest players of all time? I don’t think that’s crazy.

Also, Kawhi led his team to a first round exit, second round beating, and conference finals sweep in his last 3 years in SA. Let’s not act like he’s been in the finals or conference finals every year his entire career.


6.) 11 Sep 2020 14:47:23
Heck, Kawhi was the 4th best player on his own team when he won his first finals MVP.


7.) 11 Sep 2020 16:17:59
How is no clutch Gene not an argument? Ask anyone is the nba lol they all talk about it all the time. LeBron had also been to the finals by 25 and was the only good player on his team. Regular season MVP is the dumbest argument ever. James Harden and Russel Westbrook have MVPs, and they’re much older and can’t get past the second round. LeBron should get the MVP almost every year and everyone knows that. If you compare Giannis to LeBron to anyone with basketball knowledge they will laugh right in your face. Giannis deserves the same criticism that Ben Simmons and Westbrook are getting. Even his free throw numbers are similar to Ben Simmons😂. Obviously he is better but he has the same flaws and they both get an extreme amount of criticism compared to Giannis and I’m sure you hate on Ben Simmons because he can’t shoot blah blah😂. Just admit you have a bias it’s so obvious. He has a shot of being a pretty good player but not the best ever. Pretty laughable you think so. Clearly you have a recency bias and are subject to new exciting players and not players who win. Also, 2 of those series loses were to the warriors who no one besides LeBron had any chance of beating, and 1 he was up in the series and Zaza broke his ankle. The other was to KD and Westbrook the year they blew a 3-1 series lead to the warriors which is pretty much the only argument you have against Kawhi there, as anyone with basketball knowledge would not hold losing to the warriors against anyone not named LeBron.


8.) 11 Sep 2020 16:20:26
The 4th best player doesn’t get finals mvp. Clearly you only look at regular season and not winning, which last time I checked is what makes you great. It was the year he developed and he was amazing in the playoffs. Like I said he wasn’t better than Duncan sure, but he showed up when it mattered in the playoffs. That’s the clutch gene you don’t care about which means you also don’t consider winning, so yeah giannis can go down as the best regular season player ever and only you will remember amongst the greats in la la land while everyone else is in reality.


9.) 11 Sep 2020 17:04:25
The criticism Simmons gets is considerably overblown too in my opinion. Westbrook is 32 with no change, his criticism is valid.

The clutch gene isn’t an argument because people said Lebron didn’t have a clutch gene too. It’s too early to say that about Giannis.

Comparing 25 year old lebron and 25 year old Giannis is shockingly similar. Lebron may have made it to the finals, but he also got swept in those finals.

People just write the story of a players career at 25, and it’s really silly.


10.) 11 Sep 2020 18:26:46
You wrote a story that he will be significantly better than Kawhi at 25. I, along with anyone else with basketball knowledge know that that basically means you think he will be the best ever by saying that because Kawhi has demanded respect with his ability to win. He can obviously prove me wrong but you don’t go saying he’ll be the best ever until he accomplishes something. So far his accomplishments are DPOY and that’s about it. Keep getting hung up on the regular season. He will need to make drastic improvements to his game, and usually free throw numbers are a pretty good sign. LeBron’s playoff numbers by 25 were much better than Giannis with a much worse team, arguably the worst to ever make it to the finals going with Allen Iverson’s sixers. It’s also not all about the numbers but timing and LeBron made a bunch of clutch 3’s on the way to the finals even tho he shot in the 30% collectively. 4th quarter Giannis barely hits the rim chucking up 3’s. Also a very different game with different rules now so it’s much more important with these guards that can do whatever with no hand checking. LeBron and Kawhi are miles ahead of the nba barring how KD comes back, he certainly can put his name up there, in terms of individuals being able to take over any important game necessary.


11.) 11 Sep 2020 19:53:53
Giannis definitely has potential to be better than Kawhi. If Giannis gets a jump shot or even a consistent mid range he will absolutely be past Kawhi.


12.) 11 Sep 2020 21:35:59
Feels like another Kobe-Lebron argument.


13.) 11 Sep 2020 23:19:47
Don’t understand the lack of respect for Kawhi. Look up who his company is with what he has accomplished. He is easily in the top 10 all time if he continues this play for a few more years and wins maybe 1 more chip, which he has a great chance of doing this year. When Giannis wins a challenging playoff serious I’ll take someone seriously when they talk about what he could be. So far, he’s been a disappointment, much to the likes of Ben Simmons, who one could easily make the same argument he could be the best ever if he gets a jump shot, but you don’t see anyone doing that because he hasn’t shown improvement in that area over several seasons, just like. giannis.


14.) 12 Sep 2020 00:01:14
Exactly USA. I remember the constant “Kobe is sooooo much better than Lebron” arguments when Kobe was mid prime and lebron was incredibly young.


15.) 12 Sep 2020 04:43:23
Overall game there equal. Great argument who better. They both have there advantages and allot to go.

The Blazers offered you Lillard and wants a king's ransom, what are you giving for him from your team?

McDonalds

1.) 13 Jul 2020 12:30:31
Fox Barnes 2020 first and lottery protected 2022 first.


2.) 13 Jul 2020 12:36:16
Anyone except Lowry and Siakam.


3.) 13 Jul 2020 13:20:56
Lakers have nothing to offer but in behalf of Pacers fans i would give Brogdon, Sabonis, 3 1st round picks, 2 swaps and 2 2nds. I think Lillard-Dipo barring injuries is better than Lillard-McCollum especially in the east.


4.) 13 Jul 2020 13:57:47
Agree with USA, we should sell the house to get him.


5.) 13 Jul 2020 14:41:54
Well he said he want to be A knick which is rare with Dolan in charge. Robinson Barrett Ball Knox Ntilikina and dal ny 21 and 23 1st. Ny will absorb 15 mil. I don't like indy offer without victor. Raptors offer is limited. Beside that fredman offer is real sweet.

Lilliard/ Pinson/ Porter
Dotson/ Bullock/ I. Joe-45
Marcus/ Melo/ Brazdeikas
Randle/ Markieff/ Wooten
Portis/ Oturu-27/ Nnaji-38.


6.) 13 Jul 2020 18:41:44
Powell>Barett
VanVleet>Ball
OG>Robinson
TOR '21 1st=DAL '21 1st
McCaw>Knox
M Thomas>Ntilikina
TOR '23 1st+'25 1st + 2nds>>DAL '23 1st

How is that worse than your offer Shizzee.


7.) 13 Jul 2020 18:49:11
Chris Paul and 6 first.


8.) 13 Jul 2020 19:03:37
Darry: Because Barrett and Ball are considerably more valuable than Powell and VanVleet. I also think Robinson is slightly more valuable than OG, but it’s close. I’d also take Knox over McCaw (though neither has a lot of value) .


9.) 13 Jul 2020 19:41:10
Any offer you prefer, BMiller?


10.) 13 Jul 2020 20:05:57
If the Knicks offered that (2 good young players, a top 10 pick, two bad young players, and multiple future firsts), that package seems hard to beat.

I do like the Indy one. The Sabonis family is beloved in Portland. I think Sabonis and Nurkic would fit worse than Turner and Sabonis do though.

Without Siakam, Toronto doesn’t cut it. Even if they offered Siakam, he’s the kind of guy you add to Lillard, not get for him.

I think the Nets could throw an intriguing offer together. Dinwiddie, LeVert, and Allen have contracts that line up with Lillard exactly.

If OKC got involved, it would HAVE to include SGA. Picks alone aren’t going to do it.

I like the Sacramento one too. Fox is like a young Lillard.

NO has a huge amount of resources. If Ingram was given a big contract, he could be a centerpiece with picks and another young guy or two. Couldn’t happen this offseason with Ingram being a FA though.


11.) 13 Jul 2020 21:32:10
What about C's offering Walker and multiple 1st? Portland can still compete while adding assets.

Miami giving up Adebayo + matching salaries? But lacking picks

Bulls? Coby White, Carter or Markkanen+ maybe 4 1st round picks. Way to lure AD?


12.) 13 Jul 2020 22:57:36
The Boston trade of Lillard for walker and picks feels like the actions of a GM that is trying to save his job. It’s a short sighted move. It’s totally believable, but I really dislike it.

I’d take Bam if Miami offered. He’s going to be (or is) a superstar. I don’t think Miami would be willing to part with him.

Nothing in Chicago interests me in any way when it comes to a superstar deal. Maybe if they win the lottery.


13.) 13 Jul 2020 23:48:21
The Suns could offer
Rubio+ Ayton+oubre+ 1rnd pick 2020-2021-2023 and 2024
For Lillard and Nurkic

Philly can offer B simmons and a pick.

The Timberwolves could offer Russell+ Culver+ 1rnd pick Nets 2020+ 1rnd pick Wolves 2020

Denver could offer Murray+ M Porter Jr+ future draft pick

Utah could offer D Mitchell and Conley for Lillard and a pick.


14.) 14 Jul 2020 15:10:17
That Denver option would also be really interesting. If MPJ ends up what Denver thinks he can, Portland would be set.

I don’t like the Phoenix one at all. Nurkic might be the second best player in that trade. And none of the picks would be very high.


15.) 14 Jul 2020 16:19:30
This year’s first, the Milwaukee 1st, Garland and filler. It’s not enough, but I think the Cavs would be looking to flip him.


16.) 14 Jul 2020 17:40:20
FVV+Powell+Anunoby+Davis+Thomas+'20+'21+'23+'25+'27 1sts for Lillard.


FVV/ McCollum/ Anunoby/ Collins/ Nurk.


 

 

28 Apr 2018 06:16:42
Donovan Mitchell is something else. C'mon that kid looks like an MVP candidate on that game 6 victory. As for Thunder, good luck in the off season. They should find role players who can contribute heavily specially in a game where their stars are struggling.

McDonalds

1.) 28 Apr 2018 16:58:07
Well, they first need to hope that George stays and Melo doesn’t. If it’s what’s expected and the reverse happens, they’re screwed. If their “big 3” is Westbrook, Melo, and Adams, they’re a lottery team.

If that happens, they’d be smart to just rebuild, trade Westbrook, Adams, Roberson, and anyone else with value, and let Melo shoot them to the #1 pick.

No. Rockets should focus on getting assets not giving them up. They have nothing to tank for by the way so if they aren't getting assets, just keep Westbrook.
