The Pelicans get Garland

The Cavs get Ball.


1.) 09 Mar 2020 18:39:41
Why would the Pels do this?

Lonzo and Zion are forming a good chemistry, Lonzo APG,FG% 3pt% are all better than Garland's as well

Pels could have taken Garland but traded back to get Hayes. That tells me they did not see that much value in him as well

2.) 09 Mar 2020 22:55:21
Garland as a shooter is more dynamic. He isn’t just taking spot up 3s. He shoots step backs, a lot off the dribble and from deep. He’s great at finding lob threats.

Ball is shooting a solid percentage and volume, but teams aren’t showing him a ton of respect and what he does well offensively gets in Ingram and Zion’s way.

You’re comparing Ball playing relatively well to a rookie pgs overall stats in his rookie year.

3.) 10 Mar 2020 12:23:47
DAC813, I'm not saying if ball or Garland is better? It's too early to judge Garland. But Lonzo is no prize. Solid defense and playmaker and horrible shot and his form is embarrassing.

But your pov to why hayes was draft over Garland is irrelevant if ball is their and they lacked a shot blocker.



04 Feb 2020 13:50:06
The Heat get Iggy and 2 2nds

The Grizzlies get Winslow and Waiters.


1.) 04 Feb 2020 14:25:29
Grizz can just trade iggy to mavs for lee and gsw second no salary the next year. Why would they add salary?

2.) 04 Feb 2020 16:10:22
Winslow is young and perfectly fills a need.



30 Jan 2020 15:53:45
The Cavs get Jordan, Harris, Temple and Kurucs

The Nets get love

There are a lot of 3 way deals that would make sense off of this and maybe the Cavs should give up some seconds or a protected 1st, but it would make a lot of sense for both teams


1.) 30 Jan 2020 16:18:05
have you lost your damn mind, love has a third of that value.

2.) 30 Jan 2020 17:17:22
What value? The only player that has any significant value is Harris. Jordan has significant negative value. Temple is a low end rotation player with 2 years left on his deal and Kurucs is a guy that got arrested recently and is out of the rotation.

3.) 30 Jan 2020 17:35:16
Rkenne Tina turner said it best. what's Love got to do with it lmao. even fake kobi thinks its crazy.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 18:26:55
KD and Kyrie refuse to trade Jordan.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 19:28:05
Wind, maybe, but they’ve seen him up close now. Is it possible that realize that he’s not good?

6.) 30 Jan 2020 20:59:38
I am on the opposite side of this one. Love is by far the best player in this deal. Not enough for Cleveland. It would be a steal for Brooklyn.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 19:29:33
kenne you could be right, but I think it had more to do with friendship and clubhouse chemistry than performance anyway.



24 Jan 2020 14:54:46
The Suns get Robert Williams and Gallo

The Thunder get Hayward, Tyler Johnson, Bridges, Baynes and the Celtics 2020 1st

The Celtics get Adams and Schroeder


1.) 24 Jan 2020 15:29:41
why would okc do this.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 16:19:53
and who is okc going to buy out. no room on roster to take all 4.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 17:01:21
probably Burton.

4.) 24 Jan 2020 19:36:36
Windrapsfan, I’m sure they can find a roster spot. Cut Roberson or something.

Shizzee, they get younger, get a pick, save some money, sure up their wings and aren’t paying a role player 25 million dollars for the next 2 years.

You’re selling high on Schroeder. Baynes and Noel can give them 90 percent of what Adams does for 18 million less. Hayward fills a giants hole at small forward. They’ve done well at developing defensive minded wings and Bridges has all the raw tools you’d want on the defensive end.

5.) 25 Jan 2020 05:08:02
I had to bust your bubble but Schroeder is by far the best backup guard I’ve seen in the league and is shooting the ball really good any guy coming off the bench averaging 18 sometimes 23-25 a night is hard to come by and his contract is really not bad he will bring a good return I’d really like to keep him to be honest but if they’ve trade him they will come out good on him you watch and see.



23 Jan 2020 00:40:54
The Cavs get Johnson, Olynyk, the Denver 1st and a Miami 2nd.

The Heat get Love, Paul, and Noel

The Thunder get Dragic, Winslow, Waiters, and a Miami 2nd.


1.) 23 Jan 2020 07:21:05
Mmm i don't like it for the Thunder. I maybe in the minority.

2.) 23 Jan 2020 11:41:52
Love has zero value with that contract.

3.) 23 Jan 2020 11:50:21
Lmao shizzee.

4.) 23 Jan 2020 12:26:24
presti hangs up the phone and resolves to never take another trade call from miami.

5.) 23 Jan 2020 13:15:59
Why is okc sending first round pick? Paul is more valuable than love. Okc shouldn't give a pick to unload of Paul salary. He has a bad contract but not too bad to send a pick and take Waiters.

6.) 24 Jan 2020 00:13:03
Plane and simple, Miami has made it Extremely clear that they don’t want Paul’s contract. Because of its 3rd year option. It doesn’t matter how much more valuable or well he is playing. They would only take it if there were several 1st rounders attached so they could use those to help trade him later on.
Miami is fully aware that he would help their team, but they have some younger players they are targeting in free agency of 2021-22.
On the flip side, Okc would never want to take back all those teams leftover junk being sent back to them for a starting point guard, good backup center and a 1st Round pick. Why hurt your team, while making the team whose 1st Round picks you have better?

02 Jan 2020 15:52:36
Who has more value right now, Kevin Love or Al Horford and would a Horford Love swap make sense for Philly? (The Cavs either planning to trade Horford down the line or find a 3rd team).


1.) 02 Jan 2020 16:54:47
Send Horford to a 3rd team.

2.) 03 Jan 2020 04:48:31
Horford and fillers for d russel. Gsw needs a big just like AL. Sizers need a real pg so Ben can go to pf.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 16:16:25
I think Horford holds more value just because you can rely on him to stay on the court.



01 Dec 2019 16:16:51
So what's going on with Andre Roberson?


1.) 01 Dec 2019 20:24:11
I have no idea. At the beginning of the season they were saying he should b good to start playing some and then obviously that isn't the case. At this rate i'm wondering if they r just leaving him out until his contract expires or they trade him so the younger guys get more minutes. I have no idea.

2.) 04 Dec 2019 11:37:51
The Thunder recently announced that his return still won't be anytime soon. So he is still out a while.

3.) 05 Dec 2019 09:58:11
What a weird injury. Hopefully, he can get back at some point and at least be something. It’s been like 2 years at this point hasn’t it?

4.) 05 Dec 2019 12:02:31
Close yea. it happened in january 2018 so in a month it would have been 2 years. He just kept haveing more and more set backs in rehab. They never said exactly what the set backs where, but he just keeps getting unlucky i guess.



27 Oct 2019 19:54:12
Watching this Thunder Warriors game, Paul looks so bad physically. Maybe, he just needs to work himself into shape, but I wouldn't touch him, if I were a contender.


1.) 28 Oct 2019 09:33:31
Warriors playing horribly too.

2.) 28 Oct 2019 11:48:39
Chris Paul doesn't look the, best right now, but i love what i'm seeing from SGA he is definitely looking like a future all star.

3.) 28 Oct 2019 14:42:51
Yeah, SGA is rolling and the Warriors have been awful. They have 4 rotation players right now and Steph and Dlo have just been missing. They’re not going to be that bad, but that real is just so bad from the 5th guy on.



15 Aug 2019 14:25:04
Let's say that the Stepien rule doesn't exist, you are an expansion team that has no one on the roster, the Bucks want to trade Giannis for nothing but picks and someone from the future told you that if your team trades for Giannis, he'll stay there for his entire career. How many consecutive picks would you be willing to give up for him?


1.) 15 Aug 2019 16:36:00
Will he give hometown discounts as well? Or are teams paying 40 mil a year for every year?

2.) 15 Aug 2019 17:13:40
7? You give up a lot to get him. He just lead a team of nice vets to the best record in the NBA without another true star.

Hometown discount doesn't matter, he's 100% worth the supermax and you give it to him happily.

3.) 15 Aug 2019 23:39:33
Hometown discounts means more picks I am willing to give up. Probably 3-4 if I am paying supermax and I can get the shooters around him.

Bet thd Bucks take a step back this year?

4.) 16 Aug 2019 14:33:46
Step back meaning the #1 seed in the east, but not the best record in the NBA?

Who in the east is passing them? I have no faith in Phili. I have no faith in Boston. Indy would have a chance if Oladipo was going to be healthy to start the season, but he's not. Toronto isn't good enough (unless Siakim becomes a top 10 player) .

5.) 16 Aug 2019 14:34:28
So you wouldn't give up more for Giannis than teams already have in real life for George or Davis? To me, he's without a doubt better than both.

6.) 16 Aug 2019 18:49:59
I am not sure I would give you better than Anthony Davis. Healthier? Definitely. But skill-wise, Giannis lack of shooting cancels any youthful athletic advantage Giannis has in the transition game. However, in a halfcourt game, AD's versitility is greater. If AD were younger and could play 82 games a season, they would be pretty equal.

7.) 16 Aug 2019 23:18:43
I’d take Giannis over Davis because of his passing an ball handling. It just gives him significantly more control over the game. Giannis was also ridiculously efficient last year on the offensive end and statistically there isn’t a huge difference in their jumpers. Teams are going to sag off both guys.

I was thinking like 8 or 9 1sts. You’re talking about a 25 year old two way monster that has no real injury history and has gotten better every year. You are probably getting your number one guy for the next ten years.

8.) 17 Aug 2019 03:15:41
The problem with giving uo all those firsts is that you only have one way of getting talent around him. Signing Free Agents and the salary cap limits how much you can add as well.

9.) 17 Aug 2019 12:09:34
You have 90 million dollars though. You could chase some restricted guys this summer, you could use your space to add picks and punt the space for a few years, you can go after veteran role players and etc. you’d have the freedom to do almost anything. What if this year/ summer, you go out and get like Hield and Otto Porter for 50 million, get some picks and competent but over payed player with the remaining money and then take some chances on cheap veterans and young retreads. Then go into next free agency with a max slot. You’d likely have a window of 10 years to go get a title.

10.) 17 Aug 2019 18:18:45
I'm taking AD. Most dominate big man in league on both ends and think lbj will take a lot of pressure off him and he stay healthy. like cousins did but cousins couldn't stay healthy. Giannis got exposed by Leonard. Plus need to shoot better.

11.) 17 Aug 2019 19:20:34
He averaged 24 6 and 15 or something in that series. His scoring was down a little bit, but he didn't lay an egg or something. He wasn’t quite as good as he normally is. He’s a 24 year old monster, who has gotten better every year.

12.) 18 Aug 2019 11:07:04
Giannis is good, but not twice as good as Davis, so not worth twice the draft picks that New Orleans got for Davis (disregarding the argument that the Lakers overpaid for Davis) .

13.) 18 Aug 2019 22:21:11
Not saying he is not talented. Just perhaps not TWICE as talented as AD since you want to give DOUBLE the amount of first rounders. And the Lakers overpaid for AD on top of it (So did OKC for PG13). So giving up 3-4 would still be saying that Giannis is better than AD.

14.) 18 Aug 2019 22:23:16
Yeah, but it wasn’t just picks in the Davis deal, one was the 4th pick and they structured the picks to where they get their best picks over the next 5 or so years. Even if you think that Ingram and Ball are only worth one 1st each, you are already up to 6 1sts without weighting the swaps or talking about the other stuff they got in the trade. I’d also argue that Ball and Ingram are worth more than just a 1st.

If I were going to break that trade down to what the value of the picks are

Ingram 2, Ball 2, the 4th 2, the two 1sts that the Pelicans can roll over 3, and the Cavs protected 2020 plus Hart is 1.

That adds up to 10 and you could probably argue more, if you really like Ball, Hart and/ or Ingram.

15.) 19 Aug 2019 01:47:14
See I don't give the players in the trade much value. To me they were just salary fillers because Lakers were just trying to ship them out to create a 3rd max slot. I might give you one first for the whole lot.



01 Aug 2019 11:44:32
Can anyone explain to me the rational behind the Knicks signing 4 pfs? I was looking at their roster and trying to make some sense out of it and I'm blanking. Not to mention that Knox is probably a 4 and Barrett should probably be playing some 4 as well.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 12:16:46
Its the Knicks understanding of positionless basketball?

Also, if 4 PFs are the only ones willing to take your money.

2.) 01 Aug 2019 14:50:09
Maybe they think they can get value out of those guys in trades? Get the most valuable players on the best value contracts and then flip them later on?

3.) 01 Aug 2019 21:21:04
Also, they're either playing Knox and Barrett at the wings, or they're completely sabotaging their youth.

I guess it could be both.

I really just don’t find Edwards or Ball all that much more appealing than Garland, Sexton and KPJ. Edwards seems like a volume scorer that wasn’t much of a passer. Ball comes with a circus, can’t shoot and doesn’t play defense.

I assume you’d have to get rid of Sexton, if you get Edwards as you can have 3 score first guards as your core going forward and Garland actually was starting to turn into a solid passer after December (over 5 assists a game) . I wouldn’t trade KPJ, he just seems to have ridiculous upside on both ends. That said, Sexton has shown that he can actually score at a fairly high level in the nba and has done nothing but improve.

You probably get rid of Garland, if you draft Ball. His size fits with Sexton, but if he doesn’t try to play defense, I don’t see a difference between having a bigger guy or a smaller guy that’s getting blown past. I also think that Garland has a more modern nba style, his passing got significantly better during the year, he’s really going to benefit from a healthy offseason, his shooting could end up being dynamic, and he’s a really smart player. I’m not sure that Ball is going to be the better player between the two.

I guess it all depends on where the pick is, who’s available, and what teams are willing to give up in a trade for Sexton or Garland, but I’d prefer the Cavs taking a forward or center.

I don’t see him getting an AD or George deal. I don’t think George gets that deal under almost any other circumstance.

I don’t think that team wins 35 or 40 games with just Wall, even if he comes back at 100 percent. Also, there’s a good chance that Wall is a shell of his former self.

I think that Washington probably starts the season off with Beal on the roster, sees what they have in Wall and the rest of the team. Then they make a decision on Beal from there.

Drummond is going to opt in. He just doesn’t have other viable options unless it’s a sign and trade.

Unless they’re taking a guard or get a significant offer for Garland, they shouldn’t trade him. They’re not going to get value back for him and there’s a good chance that he comes back from a long offseason significantly better. He needs to get stronger, his passing has gotten significantly better already, and there’s reason to think that he is going to be a really good shooter. Kuzma is a 25 year old off ball sixth man that really didn’t help a good team a ton. That’s an extremely late first and rondo looks cooked.

Sexton was playing to well to trade. He’s 20 and was clearly their best offense player most nights. Over 20 points on 56 percent ts is nothing to sneeze at.

Portland is getting way too much. Mcollum had a down year. The rest of the league is getting more efficient and his offense has gotten slightly worse if anything. Simmons has a ton of value. Mcollum isn’t getting a huge haul. Reddick is still worth a 1st. I don’t think Simons is looked at like a blue chip prospect, which imo would need to be involved. Philly should be getting a first rather than giving one up. NOs needs another 1st.
