Pg Porter/Augustin/Nwaba
Sg Green/Gordon/Christopher
Sf Kennard/House
Pf Simmons/Tate

Ce Embiid/Drummond

Thats not enough for Simmons. His values droppen. But they still can get a better offer for him.

2.) 21 Sep 2021 16:49:11
That’s ugly for Philly.



08 Sep 2021 23:06:39

DET get Killian Hayes, Jerami Grant & 2 1st round picks

PHI get Ben Simmons & Tyrese Maxey

Yeah i'm not sure if Cade-Simmons tandem would work but these are 2 players they can start building a contender in years. Philly get a young guard 2 potentially good picks and a very good player who can help them win now

1.) 09 Sep 2021 00:31:14
Philly wants win now pieces.

2.) 09 Sep 2021 00:37:22
Where's the trade? Detroit has Grant and Hayes and Philly has Simmons and Maxey. I think you're a little mixed up. Lol.

3.) 09 Sep 2021 00:49:10
Cunningham and Simmons it’s not going to fit together Pistons going to turned it down.

4.) 09 Sep 2021 01:36:21
I don’t see how Grant fits with Harris and Embiid. Those three couldn’t all play together for long stretches.

5.) 09 Sep 2021 01:42:36
I think the fit with Cade would be decent since Cade can shoot and play off ball some. However, I think the fit with Stewart would be bad since he’s a worse shooter than Embiid (Idek if Stewart can shoot)

6.) 09 Sep 2021 14:39:29
Pistons say no. They want to develop Cade as a primary ball-handler, and Simmons would take that away from him.

7.) 09 Sep 2021 17:32:27
You can’t survive with just one guy to dominate the ball all game. Having two guys that can create and act as a primary ball handler is good.

8.) 10 Sep 2021 03:01:31
Hayes and Cunningham are both going to be primary ball handlers.



07 Sep 2021 13:10:48

PHI get John Wall, Deni Avdija, 2 1st round picks WAS & a protected 1st from HOU
- a playmaker, a young guy with potential & 3 1sts. What more they want?

Pg Wall/Milton
Sg Curry/Green/Korkmaz
Sf Thybulle/Avdija
Pf Harris/Niang/Reed
Ce Embiid/Drummond

WAS get Ben Simmons, Jae'Sean Tate & 2nd rd pick HOU
- get an all-star back to compete while making Beal happy

Pg Dinwiddie/Holiday/Neto
Sg Beal/KCP
Sf Hachimura/Tate/Kispert
Pf Simmons/Harrell
Ce Bryant/Gafford

HOU get Tyrese Maxey, Davis Bertans & Kyle Kuzma
- get 2 young guys and a shooter. Might be stealing value here since Wall is negative contract. Could probably add another protected 1st if needed

Pg Maxey/Nwaba/Augustin
Sg Porter/Gordon/Christoper
Sf Green/House
Pf Kuzma/Bertans/Garuba
Ce Wood/Theis/Sengun

1.) 07 Sep 2021 13:44:18
Don’t like it for Philly.



07 Sep 2021 04:55:04

MEM get Pascal Siakam & Robert Covington

Pg Morant
Sg Bane
Sf Covington
Pf Siakam
Ce Adams

POR get Ben Simmons & Tyrese Maxey

Pg Lillard/Maxey
Sg Powell
Sf Simmons
Pf Nance Jr
Ce Zeller

TOR get Jusuf Nurkic, Jarren Jackson Jr & 1st round pick MEM lottery protected

Pg Vanvleet
Sg Anunoby
Sf Barnes
Pf Jackson
Ce Nurkic

PHI get CJ McCollum, Dillon Brooks & Kyle Anderon + 2 1st round picks POR

Pg McCollum
Sg Curry
Sf Brooks
Pf Harris
Ce Embiid

MEM add one more salary. Maybe Dunn or Jones to TOR

1.) 07 Sep 2021 11:10:46
IDK how good Jackson is tbh. Maybe good enough for us? IDK.
That looks pretty good for Philly.
Going off of BMiller's comments, that looks like pretty fair value for Simmons and Maxey.
I feel like maybe Memphis should give a bit more? I sure value Siakam higher than I probably should. . . idk.
Overall, i think it's a nice trade. Good job usa!

2.) 07 Sep 2021 12:04:38
I think Philly is getting a bit too much but solid idea.

3.) 07 Sep 2021 15:11:56
I actually dislike this a lot for Portland. Adding one of Nurkic or Covington and one first I could see. Both and two firsts is just too much talent leaving the team.

I’d want Brooks and/ or Anderson too at least.

4.) 07 Sep 2021 15:42:39
-If the Raptors wanted a traditional center they would have prioritized it in the offseason. They don't have one because they don't want to play that way. Nurcic does not fit at all into what Toronto wants to do, so they wouldn't want this deal.

5.) 07 Sep 2021 22:02:54
Put the trade in Fanspo trade machine it a success. Need to added Jones and send him to Por and Jaren Jackson Jr has a team option for this season.

6.) 08 Sep 2021 02:42:00
It doesn’t seem like memphis is wanting to compete right now after there off-season moves. I doubt they’d want to trade youth and picks right now.

SAC get Ben Simmons, Kenrich Williams & Paul Reed
SAC come on get Ben Simmons, a big chance to acquire an all-star

I believe that Buddy Hield is an essential if they acquire Simmons. So giving up Barnes is better since they still have Harkless. Haliburton is the best asset the Kings can give to acquire an all-star

Pg Fox/Mitchell
Sg Hield/Davis/Ramsey
Sf Harkless/Williams
Pf Simmons/Metu/Reed
Ce Holmes/Len/Thompson

PHI get Tyrese Haliburton, Harrison Barnes, Isaiah Roby, 1st round pick top 7 protected (SAC) & 1st round pick LAC via OKC or 2 2nd rd picks
- get players that can help them win now with Embiid. Doesn't close to the value they are seeking but definitely a huge haul if Simmons wants out

Pg Haliburton/Milton
Sg Curry/Green/Korkmaz
Sf Barnes/Thybulle/Roby
Pf Harris/Niang
Ce Embiid/Drummond

OKC get Marvin Bagley & Tyrese Maxey
- add 2 young players they can develop along with their rebuilding line up.

Pg Giddey/Maxey
Sg SGA/Maledon/Mann
Sf Dort/Deck/Jerome
Pf Bazley/Bagley
Ce Pokusevski/Favors

1.) 01 Sep 2021 23:37:08
Okc seems to be stealing value for a late 1st and nobodies.

2.) 01 Sep 2021 23:51:08
Lack of wing depth makes it near impossible for Kings to give up Barnes + Halliburton for a non-shooter in Simmons.

LAL line up 2021-2022

Pg Westbrook/Nunn
Sg Monk/Ellington
Sf James/Horton-Tucker/Bazemore
Pf Davis/Ariza/Melo
Ce Gasol/Howard

Reserve - McKinnie

Glad to see the signings of Nunn and THT (Casual, he didn't get the max you are mentioning but it's good for LAL). Finally some fresh legs to run 😅

Side notes: medical staff might be busy

1.) 03 Aug 2021 23:09:06
Not sure this "fixed" any of last year's issues. Davis and LeBron have to stay healthy while Westbrook has to learn to be a third fiddle.

Perimeter defense and fast break defense is going to be this team's main weaknesses. PnR Gasol all game long while getting into Westbrook's head (JR Smith mentality 2.0).

2.) 03 Aug 2021 23:27:41
Little worried too Fred but for sure they'll contend. What do you think they should've done better? Hield trade? I guess given the Westbrook deal, they did a decent job of signing FA's. All they need to do is keep these "oldies" and AD away from major injuries which is quite a stretch.

3.) 04 Aug 2021 00:18:38
They got some shooters now especially off the bench. I think they need another perimeter defending guard.

Avery Bradley coming back would be a good one.

Or maybe another center (younger one lol) maybe like Birch.

4.) 04 Aug 2021 01:11:32
Ayayi will or should get some minutes too.



03 Aug 2021 20:58:50
I have faith. But it feels like 2004 again for the Lakers 😖

1.) 03 Aug 2021 21:44:16
Monk and Nunn are good signings.



23 Jul 2021 06:32:21
All in their primes who you got

Pg CP3
Sg Wade
Sf Durant
Pf Garnett
Ce B.Wallace


Pg Iverson
Sg R.Allen
Sf Kawhi
Pf Giannis
Ce M.Gasol

1.) 23 Jul 2021 16:23:27
The first one.

2.) 23 Jul 2021 17:24:56
Kinda going with the second one. Would love to see Garnett's reaction to having to guard Giannis on the break/ isolation.



18 Jul 2021 03:47:12
Why they (Phoenix Suns) didn't call that final timeout. For God's sake this is the finals not regular season game. That is very costly. Smh



25 Jun 2021 15:01:24
For fun.

Without exception, who are your top 5 most valuable players in a trade today? Meaning who could fetch the most assets if traded.

1.) 25 Jun 2021 17:36:13

in no particular order.

2.) 25 Jun 2021 18:14:11
Lamelo/ Morant.

3.) 25 Jun 2021 21:21:11
Luka, Giannis, Zion, Trae seems like an easy top 4. Maybe Tatum, Booker, or Jokic for #5.

4.) 25 Jun 2021 21:10:45
In no particular order.

Lillard, Doncic, Young, Curry, Durant.

5.) 26 Jun 2021 01:37:29

6.) 26 Jun 2021 11:16:01
Doncic/ Giannis/ Jokic/ Tatum/ Booker.

But why would Dallas trade Doncic? He is like Lebron during his younger years. Only a crazy gm will trade that kind of talent and surely that's not Cuban.

Nah. Not advisable to trade assets if you are rebuilding unless you are getting huge return. This is a meh return for Detroit, they say no. In fact, they can get more than this for Grant alone.

A lot of young talent to Detroit? Where? Lmao why would a rebuilding team trade a 1st round pick and get worse players in return.

Been thinking about simmons to suns for quite some time. This is really good for them. Simmons Brogdon Booker Ayton core would be great for years.

Let's get shizee back. He is needed in this site. MD's temper loses if he didn't like a trade regarding his team and he tries to curse every poster involve lmao.

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry but an abusive keyboard warrior is not needed on this site at all. Quite the opposite.}
