PHI get Chris Paul

Pg Paul
Sg Richardson
Sf Thybulle
Pf Simmons
Ce Embiid

OKC get Buddy Hield & Jabari Parker

Sg Hield
Sf Dort
Pf Bazley
Ce Adams

SAC get Tobias Harris, 2 1st round picks (Thunder & Sixers)

Pg Fox
Sg bogdanovic
Sf Barnes
Pf Harris
Ce Bagley

1.) 21 Sep 2020 17:21:53
No from SAC.



20 Sep 2020 12:56:54

LAC get Kevin Love & Norvell Pelle
- add a veteran with championship experience. He can help that locker room and Clippers wouldn't mind paying him that money because they are competing
- resign Montrezl Harrell with less than max money (only if he wants to stay)
- sign DJ Augustin via MLE, Aaron Baynes min

Pg Shamet/Augustin
Sg Leonard/Williams
Sf George/Mann
Pf Love/Green
Ce Harrell/Pelle

CLE get Ivica Zubac, Mike Scott (exp), 21st pick via PHI & Zhaire Smith
- get some good value for Kevin Love. Get additional pick and 2 young players. If they intend to keep Drummond, they can trade Zubac for another pick or if not, he will be a cheap option at center

Pg Garland/Exum
Sg Sexton/Porter/Smith
Sf Avdija (pick)/Osman/Wade
Pf Nance/Scott/21st pick
Ce Drummond/Zubac

PHI get Pat Beverley & Rodney McGruder
- get 2 usable players. It will be awkward to see Beverley and Embiid on the same team but the Sixers need some more boost in energy. They can start Bev at PG and Simmons at PF. There's not a lot of things they can do and trading a late 1st to get some good rotational players will be better for them

Pg Beverley/Milton
Sg Richardson/Korkmaz
Sf Harris/Thybulle/McGruder
Pf Simmons/Horford
Ce Embiid/Horford

I followed some advise from the Talk segment about trades they would believe (posted by Paris). Clippers & Sixers are trying to compete that's why they are getting players that can help while Cavs are rebuilding so they get some asset. Now is this unbelievable? Why?

1.) 20 Sep 2020 13:50:09
It’s interesting. I’m just not sure that Love is the kind of big that LA wants and a guard that can pass might be their biggest need.

2.) 21 Sep 2020 04:27:30
To me Ind is who passes



19 Sep 2020 22:51:10

HOU get Myles Turner

Pg Westbrook
Sg Harden
Sf Gordon
Pf Tucker
Ce Turner

IND get Jonathan Isaac & Terrence Ross

Pg Brogdon
Sg Oladipo
Sf Warren
Pf Isaac (healthy)
Ce Sabonis

ORL get Robert Covington & Danuel House

Pg Fultz
Sg Fournier
Sf Covington
Pf gordon
Ce Vucevic

1.) 20 Sep 2020 00:22:16
Makes perfect sense for the Rockets but I’m not sure what the Pacers/ Magic get out of it.

2.) 20 Sep 2020 02:48:20
Magic get hosed but I'd love this as a Pacers fan:)

3.) 20 Sep 2020 10:15:10
No from Orlando. Covington and House aren't an upgrade for Isaac and Ross.



18 Sep 2020 13:46:36

BKN get Bradley Beal

Pg Irving/Johnson
Sg Beal/Temple/Crawford
Sf Durant/Harris
Pf Prince/Kurucs
Ce Jordan/Claxton

NOLA get Spencer Dinwiddie & Jarrett Allen

Pg Dinwiddie/Jackson
Sg Holiday/Redick
Sf Ingram/Hart
Pf Zion/Melli
Ce Allen/Hayes

WAS get Caris Levert, Lonzo Ball & 2021 LAL 1st via NOLA, 13th pick via NOLA, Darius Miller, 1st round pick 2020 BKN, future 1st round pick BKN

Pg Ball (Wall)/Smith
Sg Levert/Brown/Draft pick
Sf Vassell/Bonga/Miller
Pf Hachimura/Draft pick
Ce Bryant/Pasecnicks

1.) 18 Sep 2020 15:45:09
if I were wizards gm I would cut nola. take levert, allen, prince (instead of dinwiddie) and picks. and use 2 first round picks to unload wall's contract. you can find a team for wall if you attach 1 or 2 first round picks and get some above avarage players. hornets, magic, cavs, knicks, detroit, bulls.



18 Sep 2020 12:20:51

PHI get Lou Williams & Blake Griffin

Pg Simmons/Milton
Sg Richardson/Lou
Sf Harris/thybulle
Pf Griffin
Ce Embiid/Pelle

DET get Pat Beverley, Ivica Zubac, Mike Scott & Furkan Korkmaz

Pg Beverley
Sg Kennard
Sf Okoro
Pf Doumboya
Ce Zubac

LAC get Al Horford, Derrick Rose & 1st round pick PHI & 2nd round pick DET

Pg Rose
Sg Leonard
Sf George

Season overachievers:

Miami (When Butler came, they are a playoff team but not to the extent that they will reach the ECF and a great chance of going to finals, amazing)

OKC (who would have thought that after losing 2 stars, they will take the Rockets into a very close game 7, not mentioning that analysts game them 1.5% chance of reaching the playoffs

Boston (yes, they are strong on paper but i only expected them to last until the 2nd round but here they are, just like Miami)

Honorable Mention: Raptors (they lost Kawhi and still manage to pull a fight for the championship they are defending, just fell short)

For lottery teams i think Memphis


Bucks (i expected a finals loss at least)

Clippers (i thought the west finals is the least they will go with how they built that team)

Sixers (partially because of how bad the team is built that they didn't notice when the season started but most thought how they are good on paper)

Honorable Mention: Rockets (Warriors are their nemesis and i thought without the Warriors they'll be on top along with LA teams but the fact that they ruined their team and embrace the small ball approach turned into a horrible nightmare once again)

1.) 17 Sep 2020 20:07:52
I would put Nuggets as honorable mention for overachievers as well. They’re a great team but I’m pretty sure no one had them in the WCF (kindve like your description for the Celtics and Heat)

2.) 18 Sep 2020 06:47:59
I think Nuggets are expected to be this strong just overshadowed by LA teams in the conversation.

3.) 18 Sep 2020 14:29:11
They’re just as strong as Boston imo.



17 Sep 2020 13:05:56
CP3 is an all NBA 2nd team. If it wasn't because of his enormous contract he probably is one of the best trade targets for contending team.

1.) 17 Sep 2020 14:04:29
The problem is he’s still 35. Best case scenario you get one more good year out of him. Contenders would love to have him, but no one is giving up multiple firsts and/ or good youth for him.



16 Sep 2020 10:04:20
What pairing would you like to see?


Both getting to their prime years. Comparable to a Kobe-Shaq duo?

Trial Offer: Ayton, Oubre or Bridges plus 3 to 4 1st round picks


Potentially the best 1-2 punch if it happens

Trial offer: CJ, Collins, Simons, 3 to 4 1st round picks

Paul-Giannis in Milwaukee

Giannis might need a vet talent in CP3 and try it one more time in the east

Trial offer: Bledsoe, Ilyasova, Wilson, 1st rd pick

Or any other?

1.) 16 Sep 2020 17:45:05
I say lbj and Davis the best one two punch.



14 Sep 2020 13:59:19

NYK get Eric Bledsoe
- get a defensive pg that Thibs would want
- draft Devin Vassell with the 8th pick and Terry at 27
- go to FA market and sign some quality players at a right price (Bertans, Harris, Gallinari, Morris bros?, etc)

Pg Bledsoe/Ntilikina/Terry
Sg Barrett/Bullock
Sf Vassell/Ellington
Pf Randle/Knox
Ce Robinson/Gibson

MIL get Zach Lavine
- add some offensive power to make Giannis happy
- sign Jeff Teague via MLE

Pg Hill/Teague
Sg Lavine/Brown
Sf Middleton/Connaughton
Pf Giannis/Ilyasova
Ce Lopez/Lopez/Wilson

CHI get Dennis Smith Jr, Donte Divincenzo, 1st round pick MIL, 1st round pick DAL via NYK 2023 & Bobby Portis (waive)
- get 2 1st for Lavine. Let White be the primary scorer
- draft Deni Avdija 4th pick

Pg White/Satoransky/Arci
Sg Avdija/Divincenzo/Smith Jr
Sf Porter/Hutchinson
Pf Markkanen/Young
Ce Carter/Gafford/Felicio

1.) 15 Sep 2020 03:16:00
I like it. I would start Divincenzo at SG to put some defense beside White. Let Avdija run 2nd unit and start at SF next year when Porter expires.



14 Sep 2020 13:49:51

ATL get Giannis & Oladipo

Pg Young
Sg Oladipo
Sf Reddish
Pf Giannis
Ce Dedmon

MIL get Collins, Hunter, 6th pick 2020, 3 future unprotected 1st from ATL

Pg Bledsoe
Sg Middleton
Sf Hunter
Pf Collins
Ce Lopez

IND get Huerter, Capela (send to a team needing a center for a 1st rd pick) & 2nd rd pick from both teams

TonyO, in what world are you living? Bulls need to give more? Rubio and Oubre isn't even worth the 4th pick and Porter is not that bad of a contract to dump because it's an expiring one. And i also remember you proposing a trade that sends Porter and Thad to Charlotte for their 3rd pick and Graham. I don't understand what basketball logic you have.

If that's the return GS rather take Wiseman themselves.

Oladipo and Turner is the value i think.

If the Bulls are desperate to land a big name sure.

It's not doable because you can't sign and trade a player with another player and s&t needs to be atleast 3yrs long.

ATL can actually beat that team in some games

I'll put Vucevic higher, maybe around number 9

I'd say Markieff to at least top 15

Curry, Paul, Westbrook, Wall, Lillard, Irving, Lowry, Rose, Conley, Lawson, Bledsoe, Kemba, Teague, Parker, Rondo, Holiday, Rubio, Jennings, Knight, Williams, Mcw, Collison, Hill, Beverley, Burke, Lin, Calderon, Chalmers, Smart, Payton

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