Sacramento receives: Favors and Jackson

New Orleans receives: Dedmon, Giles, '21 Memphis 2nd (via SAC), '22 Sacramento 2nd

Detroit receives: Joseph and Swanigan (waive)

*NOP can waive Miller (out for season and non-guaranteed next season) to clear a roster spot

SAC depth:
Fox / Ferrell / Jackson
Hield / Bogdanovic / James
Barnes / Ariza
Bagley / Bjelica / Gabriel
Holmes / Favors

NOP depth:
Holiday / Ball / Jackson
Reddick / Hart / Moore / NAW
Ingram / Williams
Williamson / Melli / Giles
Hayes / Okafor / Dedmon

DET depth:
Joseph / Rose / Frazier
Kennard / Brown / Galloway / Thomas
Snell / Mykhailiuk / Doumbouya
Griffin / Morris / Wood
Drummond / Maker

SAC clears cap with the goal of signing a free agent (before signing draft picks, about $90m committed next year between Fox, Hield, Barnes, Bagley, Holmes, James, the cap hold for Bogdanovic, dead cap, etc.), re-signing Favors with bird rights, and matching an offer sheet for Bogdanovic. There are probably other ways to shed Joseph's contract, but the options for clearing Dedmon's contract seem limited.

NOP takes a flier on Giles and also gets a couple 2nd's for taking on the extra year on Dedmon's contract. Instead of focusing on the short term and re-signing Favors, they can redistribute those minutes to developing players in Hayes, Giles, and Okafor. Their PG, SG, and PF spots are fairly locked in for now, so they need to take looks at Center and backup Small Forward (draft or subsequent trade).

Detroit seems like a good fit for Joseph, where they can go offense / defense between Rose and Joseph.

Trade away 4 players and 2 picks to get back 2 at best meh players.

Plus, I think Joseph and Dedmond's contracts have value next year and shouldn't just be salary dumped. Their last years are not guarenteed, which can be waived to create cap space during Giannis (and others) free agency.

Sacramento receives: Vucevic, Gordon, Augustin, Frazier

Orlando receives: Bagley, Dedmon, Joseph, Ariza, Giles, SAC '20 1st rounder (top 4 protected)

SAC depth:
Fox / Augustin / Ferrell
Hield / Bogdanovic / James
Barnes / Frazier
Gordon / Bjelica / Gabriel
Vucevic / Holmes / Swanigan

ORL depth:
Fultz / Joseph / Carter-Williams
Fournier / Ross
Isaac / Ariza / Iwundu
Bagley / Aminu / Jefferson
Dedmon / Bamba / Giles / Birch

Sacramento goes for the playoffs this year with 4/5 starters on declining salaries going forward. Vucevic + Fox complement each other nicely and Gordon hopefully benefits from the Kings being able to play faster again. They sacrifice some long term potential, but Gordon is still pretty young at 24.

Orlando goes for the rebuild with high-ceiling players and complementary veteran players on shorter contracts. They have scary defensive potential - even if their Center prospects don't work out, they can run Isaac at PF and Bagley at C. Building around Isaac probably accelerates his development, and they get to pick twice in the first round next draft.


1.) 28 Nov 2019 11:01:57
Sorry, Kings aren't trying to get older. I'll stay with the young core and the defensive pieces than what Orlando is offering.

2.) 28 Nov 2019 13:20:10
sacramento gets screwed.
Bagley has the potential to become better than Vucevic.
And the Kings should keep their picks.

3.) 28 Nov 2019 15:05:25
I agree. Sacramento has a nice little team. Stay the course and build through the draft.

Sacramento receives: Brooks, Jones, Anderson, Jackson

Memphis receives: Bogdanovic, Joseph, Bjelica, Giles

Fox / Jones / Ferrell
Hield / Brooks / James
Barnes / Ariza / Jackson
Bagley / Anderson / Gabriel
Dedmon / Holmes / Swanigan

Morant / Joseph / Melton
Bogdanovic / Allen / Gaduric
Crowder / Hill / Caboclo / Iggy
Clarke / Bjelica / Giles
Jackson / Valanciunas

SAC gets a more affordable, younger bench for the long term. Brooks gives them someone who can guard both SG and SF positions. They can match reasonable offers for Brooks next summer, sign another wing using the full MLE, and go after a Center in the draft.

MEM gets the best player in the trade in Bogdanovic and regains some long term flexibility, even though it might be somewhat expensive to match offers for Bogdanovic. Not sure they wanted to be committed to the 3 remaining years on Kyle Anderson's contract either.


1.) 07 Nov 2019 09:27:13
Kings are looking for a first rounder for Bogdanovich.

2.) 08 Nov 2019 18:10:10
If the Kings hold out, they'll get a first for Bogdanovich. He can shoot and could help a contender for sure.

Would rather not trade Buddy, but... this could be a backup plan?

SAC receives: Brown, Edwards, 2020 1st round pick (BOS)

BOS receives: Hield, Ferrell

SAC depth:

Fox / Joseph / Edwards
Brown / Bogdanovic / James / *Guy
Barnes / Ariza
Bagley / Bjelica / Lydon / *Gabriel
Dedmon / Holmes / Giles / Swanigan

BOS depth:

Walker / Smart / Ferrell / *Waters
Hield / Langford / Wanamaker /Strus
Tatum / Hayward
Theis / Ojeleye / Williams
Kanter / Poirier / Williams / *Fall

Sacramento gets younger + defense improves at the cost of shooting / spacing. They are able to distribute SG / SF minutes better between Bogdanovic / Brown / Barnes, with more time at SG for Bogdan.

A Walker / Hield backcourt seems like a perfect fit for Boston, and they continue to revamp the roster that had issues last season. They still have Tatum and the Memphis pick for long-term potential.


1.) 18 Oct 2019 10:02:34
Kings would rather pay Hield a msx deal than pay Brown a max deal. This doesn't really solve the Kings problem.

2.) 18 Oct 2019 10:16:40
Add Ojeyele and delete Edwards, and that deal could work.

3.) 18 Oct 2019 11:22:25
Supercollider, so make it one sided for Boston is what you’re saying?

SAC receives: Whiteside, Little

POR receives: Dedmon, Ariza, multiple 2nd's

Has to wait until players signed this offseason can be traded - but POR will have a transition at Center late in the season anyway, with Nurkic coming back. Ariza would help their weakness at SF this season (basically on a 1 yr deal) and Dedmon is solid + more willing to accept a backup role than Whiteside (expiring). SAC gets a chance to see if Whiteside would work there and gets a good fit in Little. SAC has a lot of 2nd rounders to spare.


SAC receives: Adams, Ferguson
OKC receives: Bogdanovic, Dedmon, Swanigan (waived)

Once OKC figures out how to dump CP3, SGA + Bogdanovic would make a great backcourt combination. Even if Bogdanovic is not quite young enough, a starting opportunity should increase his value as an asset. OKC gets under tax line. SAC improves their starting lineup, and Ferguson is interesting too. Both are on two year contracts, like a lot of SAC's non-core players. Adams would set monster screens for Fox, and I think Bagley will improve his shooting enough so that spacing will not be a big issue.

I think going into the season with Dedmon / Giles / Holmes is still a great scenario - I just think they are in a good position to pivot and react at the Center position as the season goes on. I love having Bogdanovic as a sixth man, but he deserves more minutes at SG. Paying him the contract $ he will demand next offseason looks a little different if he is a SF half the time, not being fully utilized to his strengths as a playmaker. If he would accept a 4yr/$52m extension (most the Kings can offer as an extension), the Kings should do it.


1.) 11 Oct 2019 12:04:48
Dedmon was brought into Sacramento to be a stretch 5 in order to open up the lane for Fox and Bagley. Neither Whiteside nor Adams currently have that ability. Additionally, Dedmond can run with the Kings new up tempo offense, that Adams can't do and Whiteside does less than Dedmond does. So basically, the Kings would not be interested in these trades as they are constructed.

I also get the Bogdanovich dilemna. I just think there will be better options latter in the year when the injury bug bites some teams.

2.) 11 Oct 2019 12:48:05
The Portland trade was more about Little + Whiteside's expiring contract.

With Adams, the fit isn't perfect, but it seems like a safe option. Better options might come up, but I have a hard time seeing it backfire. He just seems like such a professional, similar to Barnes.

3.) 11 Oct 2019 16:53:17
Adams is a just a poor fit for what Sacramento is doing. I like what he would bring on the defensive end of the court, but he takes away too much from the offensive end to really justify the move. Especially if I have to give up Bogdan as well.

I like the idea - the problem is that OKC can net a 1st with Gallinari alone. If they don't get assets this year for Adams they can just hold on to him and trade him next year or let his contract run out.

Paul + 2 1sts can maybe get you Winslow + Bad contracts (shorter than Paul's) . OKC is getting Gordon and Herro basically for free here.

Doubt Dolan would allow it after Kanter commented about player perception of Knicks ownership.
