SAC get Horford

PHI get Bjelica, Bogdanovic, Ariza & 1st round pick

Maybe a 3rd team to take Bjelica because of the trouble they had in the past with Philly. This only happens if Horford doesn't work out well with Embiid (i doubt though). This gives Philly some depth while Kings consolidated some assets for an established vet

1.) 08 Sep 2019 11:05:00
It feels like to much for Horford imo.

2.) 08 Sep 2019 13:28:39
No way the 6ers are tradong Horford. They consider him the answer to bringing the team together and teaching them how to win.



04 Sep 2019 23:11:26

BOS get Favors exp, Moore exp

NOLA get Love

CLE get Hayward, LAL 1st from NOLA, BOS protected 1st



03 Sep 2019 03:38:17

ATL get Drummond

DET get Len, Turner (exp) & lottery protected 1st round pick



29 Aug 2019 13:28:31

ORL get Kyle Lowry
They get Lowry to become a court leader for this young developing team

Pg Lowry/Augustin/MCW
Sg Ross/Iwundu
Sf Isaac/Frazier/Okeke
Pf Gordon/Aminu
Ce Vucevic/Bamba/Birch

TOR get Kent Bazemore (exp), Gary Trent Jr, Markelle Fultz, 1st round pick from ORL & 2nd round pick from POR
If they are going nowhere it will be wise to rebuild. They already have a ring so it's time to develop a young team and get assets. Could also offer Gasol to POR for Whiteside and a 1st if they want.

Pg Vanvleet/Fultz
Sg OG/Powell/Trent
Sf RHJ/Johnson
Pf Siakam/Ibaka
Ce Gasol

POR get Evan Fournier
I think Fournier could provide better help for POR than Bazemore. They could take the offer of Gasol for Whiteside and a 1st or could use those assets for a bigger move (Griffin, Gordon, Love, etc)

Pg Lillard/Simons
Sg McCollum/Hood
Sf Fournier/Little/Hezonja
Pf Collins/Tolliver/Skal
Ce Whiteside/Nurkic/Gasol

1.) 30 Aug 2019 03:44:02
hell no.



29 Aug 2019 08:46:47

POR get Love & Clarkson

Pg Lillard/Simons
Sg McCollum/Clarkson/Trent
Sf Hood/Hezonja
Pf Love/Tolliver/Skal
Ce Collins/Gasol/Nurkic

CLE get Whiteside (exp), Bazemore (exp), Little & 1st round pick

Pg Sexton/Knight/Delly
Sg Garland/Porter/Windler
Sf Bazemore/Little
Pf Osman/Nance
Ce Whiteside/Thompson/Zizic

1.) 29 Aug 2019 16:27:11
Definitely rather cut Clarkson and Bazemore out.

So Argentina just beat Serbia. Is this an upset or Argentines are just being underrated? The way they play is kinda amazing. Their ball movement is on point and Scola is just ageless when it comes to fiba. Are they getting smashed by USA in the semis though?

1.) 11 Sep 2019 00:01:33
Since Argentina has 0 active NBA players, I would put it in a slight upset category. Serbia's main problem was a lack of mobility and defense so any team that could score with them had a shot at beating Serbia.

2.) 11 Sep 2019 10:50:45
It’s just a single elimination tournament and Serbia was good, but it’s not like they’re the dream team. How often does the best college basketball teams actually win the NCAA tournament? It’s not like you get to see how you’re being attacked and then spend the next few days scheming for it. Their best player had a bad game and it cost them.

3.) 11 Sep 2019 12:55:24
Team USA getting drilled by the Frogs Frank Nik looks like a all star.

4.) 13 Sep 2019 05:21:37
I think GSW and other Western Teams can beat USA.

5.) 13 Sep 2019 12:01:00
Since half the Kings roster is on Serbia who just beat USA, I agree with 99.

6.) 13 Sep 2019 15:28:25
If the Lakers, Clipper, or Warriors played team USA, the two best players (at least) on the court wouldn't be on the national team.

That said, it's a tourney that no one in America really cares about unless they lose. The loss gets a solid "meh" from me. They should really just bring in NBA players for the Olympics. Let the other tournaments be played by others for exposure.

7.) 13 Sep 2019 19:34:12
You do understand that they just BARELY qualified for the Olympics. they may not be going to the Olympics if Turkey had ended up beating them. How would it have played if the USA couldn't even compete for the gold medal in basketball at the olympics?

8.) 15 Sep 2019 11:10:50
I’m pretty sure they qualified for the Olympics before they even played a World Cup game by being a top 2 Northa American team or something.



28 Aug 2019 22:58:24
If the Raptors think they are not contending will they consider trading Lowry, Ibaka and Gasol for assets and big or longer contracts and just build around Siakam? What can they get for them?

1.) 29 Aug 2019 08:19:01
Lowry is a great player, but i don't think the return would be great. So i would only trade him, if he askes for a trade and try to get something back they can use as a building piece.

Detroit could give an unprotected 1st for him.

Maybe Miam if the Dragic-Butler combo doesn't work.
Dragic+winslow for Lowry and a second.

Or Dallas, if they're making the playoffs.
T Hardaway+ C Lee+Brunson +something Torono likes.



26 Aug 2019 23:23:54
Combined skill set, attitude and physical appearance into a one new player, who will be the best?

Can you rank them?

Lebron + Klay
Lillard + Giannis
Harden + A Davis
Curry + Towns
Durant + Irving
Embiid + Westbrook
P George + Griffin
Kawhi + Jokic

1.) 26 Aug 2019 23:55:06
Davis Harden would be insane.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 02:25:36
Durant + Irving is just Durant right?

It’s weird to think that a wing/ big duo ends up with passing as the only trait from the big (Leonard/ Jokic) .

I think the 3 best are the top 3, in order.

Worst is Embiid/ Westbrook.

3.) 27 Aug 2019 03:42:16
Jokic be crazy with Leonard defense and 3 point shooting.

4.) 27 Aug 2019 04:48:17
Giannis was mvp last year so giannis + Lillard = giannis with great ballhandling skills and passing abilities that can also shoot from anywhere. Just imagine.

5.) 03 Sep 2019 12:38:34
The russ/ emnild guy would have most turnovers and techs in the league.



21 Aug 2019 23:05:37
Questions for the season:

Who should BKN start at center? Jordan or Allen? If Jordan, what will be the impact on Allen?

Will BOS live with Kanter and Tatum as starting frontcourt?

Does NYK actually have a chance at making the playoffs?

Who would IND more likely trade, Turner or Sabonis?

Are the Sixers starting 5 enough to win the east?

The Bulls are intriguing, will they put together a playoff contender?

Who will have more triple doubles, Harden or Westbrook?

Can DLo be a 25ppg guy with the Warriors without Klay?

Will LeBron make Davis an MVP candidate or he will just make him a second option?

Any chance Towns request a trade? Will the Wolves bite if ever?

If OKC keep CP3 and he stays healthy, will he be an allstar in the West?

Will POR finally beat the Warriors if ever they meet in the playoffs again? Same thing for the Rockets.

Is Zion as good as advertised?

1.) 22 Aug 2019 01:49:34
2nd option

2.) 23 Aug 2019 00:08:29
Bulls look great until they got to play defense.



21 Aug 2019 01:03:12
Who are the top 10 "stars" that would likely be traded until the deadline this year?

1.) 21 Aug 2019 11:19:58
Love, Beal, Paul, Russell, M Turner, Vucevic and Lowry are probably the only front line guys that are likely to be traded. I think it’s unlikely, but maybe, you could add Holiday.

We could see some not quite allstar/ borderline allstar guys like Dragic, Adams, Gallo, J Brown, and Hayward get moved.

I’m probably missing a few and I’m sure some people will shake loose that we aren’t expecting.

2.) 21 Aug 2019 13:37:38
I doubt Dragic is traded. Miami went through a lot of trouble not to include him in the Jimmy Butler deal. Ended up costing the Heat a draft pick to the Clippers. Going to have to be a great offer to get Dragic IMO.

3.) 21 Aug 2019 14:02:19
Love, Beal, Russell, Griffin, Paul, Aldridge, Lowry. Maybe Jrue.

Dark horse: Towns. I think Minny struggles. They could be the second worst team in the west.

That was only 9. I'll throw in Aaron Gordon. Not a star, but a good young player that seems to have lost his place in Orlando.

4.) 21 Aug 2019 21:04:14
As unlikely as this sounds, if the pacers look like they might not make the playoffs and oladipo is looking as good as he did at the beginning of last year, he could be the star that is traded even though no one might expect it.

5.) 22 Aug 2019 00:23:28
I’d be SHOCKED if Oladipo was traded.

6.) 22 Aug 2019 07:16:51
We would trade Oladipo for all the draft picks the Thunder have :-) :-) :-) or for Zion, ball, Ingram and all the draft picks NO has. :-) :-) :-)

Oladipo stays in Indy forever.

7.) 22 Aug 2019 23:16:30
Surprised no one said Derozen.

8.) 23 Aug 2019 14:37:12
Yeah, I was about to put him too. SA seems set on keeping him, but things change fast. SA feels primed for a full on youth movement.

9.) 23 Aug 2019 19:54:07
I keep seeing Ibaka+Toronto first for Derozen. Helps Spurs with yheir lack of bigs and frees up minutes for Murray/ Whte/ Walker/ Forbes.

The only issue is if Derozen is still in his feelings or not.

Love would be a great fit with NOLA but i think that’s too much for him at this point.

If the comparison is the time they were together with their body conditions i will take the Kobe team though still want to see how will these 3 (lbj) perform.

Rockets say no. Gordon i think will be more productive than Hayward. Capela and Tucker are essentials for their defense.

I'll put Vucevic higher, maybe around number 9

Jimmy Butler all over Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis all over Curry as long as Pelicans could make playoffs (doubt)
