Is that a $44 mil payment now to opt out of his final year? So Dallas is still going to pay him $124 mil.

Also OKC can not trade their 2024 and 2025 second rounders because they are tied to the 2022 first rounder if it does not convey to ATL (lottery protected) . Probably do better swapping with Denver's 2020 first rounder instead.

You can’t give that much cash, it’s against the rules.

3.) 29 Sep 2019 21:38:49
Max cash that can be traded is about 5.5 million.

4.) 29 Sep 2019 21:42:34
BMiller, I don't think this a traditional buyout as they are not waiving Paul. Seems like a simple payment to opt out of the final year. Could not find any in the CBA disapproving this.

5.) 30 Sep 2019 02:46:31
It’s one team giving another team cash in a trade. That falls under cash considerations, which is capped at 5.5m per year.

6.) 30 Sep 2019 11:56:50
Okay, I must have misread it. I was thinking Dallas was giving Paul the money not OKC. couldn't they easily work around that by having OKC give Paul the money to opt out now and then trade him to Dallas?

7.) 30 Sep 2019 15:38:03
Pretty sure the only way they could give him money to opt out would be in a waiving situation. You can't just give a guy cash to opt out, it would have to be considered payment outside of his contract, which would go against the cap and exceed his max salary.

8.) 03 Oct 2019 20:33:07
I'm pretty sure Ibaka is better than Adams.

1.) 26 Sep 2019 23:24:56
Haha why should OKC give up 3 1st Rounders to get worse players? Wiggins contract is worse than CP3 so it isn't even a salary dump.
That's just horrible.

2.) 27 Sep 2019 02:40:37
So OKC trades away Grant, Westbrook and George and only walk away with 3 firsts and some draft swaps that probably won't happen. LOL!

3.) 27 Sep 2019 20:15:07
That trade is by far the craziest I’ve seen yet no way in hell would okc give up all them picks

4.) 27 Sep 2019 21:55:20
Miami wants Paul. No way okc makes Miami better when they have two of Miami's first round picks. Okc wants Miami to be in the lottery.

Thunder / Suns Trade

Phoenix Gets

Gallinari (expiring)
2020 1st Round Pick (Thunder)

2026 1st Round Pick (Thunder)

Oklahoma City Gets

Devin Booker
T. Johnson (expiring)


1.) 17 Sep 2019 14:40:31
If OKC was cool woth offering all this, I would jump on it if I was Phoenix. Especially since the OKC picks are unprotected and they are likely to still be a lottery team after this deal. Paul/ Booker/ Adams is not that impressive and SGA goes to the bench?

2.) 17 Sep 2019 15:27:03
Is this for Booker or Giannis?

3.) 17 Sep 2019 18:06:52
Xxx, real question is this a okc fan or suns fan posing okc fan.

4.) 18 Sep 2019 00:31:49
All Thunder Picks are Protected from the Lottery and the 2026 1st Round Pick 2026 is taken out of consideration.

5.) 18 Sep 2019 01:01:15
No way in hell would okc give up that many picks nor players for Devin booker he is worth 3-4 draft picks

6.) 18 Sep 2019 11:15:51
Cant add protections and dtill stagger draft pickd. Picks HSVE to convey.

Orlando / Dallas / Oklahoma City

Orlando gets
Steven Adams and Ferguson from OKC

Dallas gets
Chris Paul and Mike Muscala from OKC

Oklahoma City gets
Hardaway and Lee from Dallas and Gordon and Bamba from Orlando and a future 2nd Round Pick from Magic.


1.) 26 Aug 2019 15:54:21
So you believe Steven Adams + Ferguson will get Aaron Gordon + Mo Bamba AND a 2nd round pick? Come on.

You are actually making the Magic's roster worse and expect them to give up a draft pick.

Typical homer approach.

2.) 26 Aug 2019 15:56:17
Again why does Magic trade Bamba and Gordon for Steven Adams who would also be a backup to Vucevic.

3.) 26 Aug 2019 15:58:31
I doubt that Orlando is giving up the two most valuable guys in the trade to get back an older back up center making more money.

4.) 26 Aug 2019 16:35:46
Echoing everyone else, this is a horrible homer trade for OKC that ignores any logic for the other teams.



12 Aug 2019 17:04:14
Thunder and Hornets

Thunder trade Steven Adams and Danilo Gallinari to the Hornets

for Cody Zeller and Nicolas Batum.

Thunder Save $8 Million

Both Team are in the Plus +1 in the NBA Trade Machine.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 22:36:34
Terrible for Okc.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 23:17:49
I like the money savings but those two from the thunder are positive 3+ pipm vs the hornets are a negative pipm grouping. So ordinarily I’d suggest adding picks to balance the talent but Charlotte is not a team to give up picks. So I don’t know how this gets done.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 05:45:38
The saving 8 mil is a little deceptive because Batum won’t turn down his player option and Zeller makes 15 mil in that 2nd year, which after you subtract that 8 mil from, the Thunder are really paying 7 mil more than if they kept their own 2 players.

Add on to that those players are definite downgrades in this swap, i believe this trade is highly unlikely.

I just can't see the Thunder making any moves before the Trade Deadline to replace the injured Andre Roberson for sure ... our assets are very limited and good at all.

Davis would had vetoed this trade and stayed with the Lakers.

Wizards would need the 2020 Nuggets Pick and 2 2nd Round Picks in the later years to make this trade work.

You probably need half of the Thunder Roster to make a Westbrook/George/Durant ... virtually impossible to do.
