Buyout market....
I'm not sure why Cleveland made the deal for Drummond, but I'm predicting that will lead to a buyout for Tristan Thompson. He'll then sign with the Raptors for the rest of the year.


1.) 06 Feb 2020 22:55:32
It’s already came out that they Cavs won’t buy out TT.

2.) 06 Feb 2020 23:51:05
What do you think about that deal for Drummond? Was it a steal or what?

3.) 07 Feb 2020 01:01:32
but why would they keep him if they want to give his minutes to Drummond?

4.) 07 Feb 2020 07:15:56
I heard that they will sign and trade them. There is only a few teams have salary cap.

5.) 07 Feb 2020 13:31:39
asdenam i'm guessing that's going to work out just as well as the Love contract that was going to make him more tradeable lol.

6.) 07 Feb 2020 20:37:04
There’s talk that Tristan might not have wanted a buy out because he needs a team to have his bird rights for him to go a decent team for more than a minimum contract.

7.) 07 Feb 2020 22:09:05
I think Thompson wanted to stay because the Cavs could pay him more, then wanted to be traded when he found out they weren't going to. they said they wouldn't buy him out when they were trying to pressure Houston to make an offer. now they have Drummond the situation changes. I wouldn't be surprised to see a buyout. I hope he comes to Toronto if he is, but he may go to Houston where there would be a bigger role available.

Out - Hollis-Jefferson, McCaw, 2020 1st
In - Rose

Out - Rose
In - TOR 2020 1st, Hollis-Jefferson, McCaw

Is this enough for Rose?
Will Toronto think he's worth a 1st?


1.) 23 Jan 2020 17:04:47
That seems like the low end of a plausible package for him. I don’t see why the Raptors would target a 3 pg though.

2.) 23 Jan 2020 18:19:28
It would be because they run FVV and Lowry in the starting lineup, both at heavy minutes. I would also assume possibly as insurance with Lowry expiring next season and Vanvleet set for free agency.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 16:14:12
So basically Pistons get hosed and Toronto gets a player who has played at his former MVP level. The first is going to be low and the two players they get have been bench players at best. Detroit can get more passes.

4.) 29 Jan 2020 22:24:03
I wouldn't trade RHJ just because there short on his position. and they would be better off trading McCaw and Stanley and a second round. but with that being said rose isn't worth a first round pick.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 14:09:11
Rose is worth a first; can't see him fitting in with 2 pg's already. would have to include a third team.

According to ESPN Minnesota is still interested in DLo, but GS isn't inclined to move him....
If the Warriors were interested in Wiggins this probably would have happened already, so it's doubtful there's any straight up trade between the Wolves and Warriors to be done....
Maybe a promising young SF and a couple of picks will entice them?


Out - Russell, RobinsonIII
In - Winslow, Johnson, Minn 2020 1st, Utah 2020 1st protected 1-14, else 2021 1st protected 1-14, else 2025 1st

Out - Wiggins, 2020 1st
In - Russell, RobinsonIII

Out - Conley, Protected 1st (see above)
In - Dragic, Waiters

Out - Dragic, Waiters, Johnson, Winslow
In - Conley, Wiggins

Trade Machine calls it +4Minn, +3Utah, a wash for Miami and -27 for GS

That's why picks are going to the Warriors... I think Miami wins as proposed... Golden State maintains salary (they can package out Johnson later to take back productive salary) and gets a promising young player and picks... Steve Kerr can dress and do the ballhandling for the rest of the year


1.) 16 Jan 2020 23:16:26
Why would the Heat trade for Wiggins when their best player had a bad past with him?

2.) 17 Jan 2020 02:49:41
Utah's 2020 first already protected to go to Memphis in Conley deal.

Secondly, reports have it that Miami is not taking on salaries that impact their available cap space for 2021 FAs (Giannis in Miami? ) .

3.) 17 Jan 2020 19:53:16
Psiphon- imagine Wiggins fitting in reaching his potential.



05 Jan 2020 03:31:58
Toronto goes all in


Toronto receives: Drummond (DET), Holiday (NOP), signs Jamal Crawford and converts Brisset and Ponds 2 way contracts

1.) 05 Jan 2020 13:54:37
hmm! not too bad.

2.) 05 Jan 2020 14:07:51
Bad return for Holiday.

3.) 05 Jan 2020 23:20:01
Fredman Powell is a 25 year old scoring 14 points a game in multiple ways on a 4th seed and he plays great defence plus a first round pick that return is just fine.

4.) 06 Jan 2020 15:17:04
Bad return for Detroit nothing to build with.

5.) 01 Feb 2020 19:44:04
Toronto might go all in but NOLA and Detroit go all out by saying no



03 Jan 2020 23:40:41

Raptors send Stanley Johnson and 2020 2nd round pick to Chicago for Kris Dunn


1.) 04 Jan 2020 21:54:50
Send Dunn to a third team and we get back a scoring wing.

2.) 05 Jan 2020 00:33:49
Nobody wants Dunn.

3.) 05 Jan 2020 16:10:32
Tor:J. Jackson
chi:S. Johnson, UTA 2nd via Dal.

Another brilliant move by Dolan... fire the President 2 days before the trade deadline...
not saying he shouldn't change the exec... they're brutal... but the timing is incredibly bad... and certainly won't inspire confidence in his decision-making among any candidates to replace Mills
speculation about Ujiri is just that... the Raps won't release him, won't trade him, and NYK is probably the last job in the world he'd want anyway...
Can someone please tape him making ignorant comments about some group that would give the commissioner a chance to make him sell the franchise? New York deserves better


1.) 05 Feb 2020 01:06:08
Stop going to games. That is what it will take. If fans stop going to games or watching games in the #1 market, Commishioner will have no alternative than to remove the owner.



02 Feb 2020 23:17:01
February 2. Bucks magic number to clinch a playoff spot is 7




01 Feb 2020 20:26:27
Well that's a little embarrassing... Doncic gets hurt maybe opening the door for Booker as an injury replacement... might be a little awkward after ripping other guys who got in ahead of him.... you think Mitchell, Ingram and a few others are going to be happy to see him there?


1.) 01 Feb 2020 20:37:31
Just because you are there doesn't mean you get into the game.

2.) 01 Feb 2020 21:41:56
I still don’t see how Ingram is in.

3.) 01 Feb 2020 23:08:19
Maybe you don't watch him?

4.) 01 Feb 2020 23:32:13
Shiller 25 6 and 4 on 60 percent ts and his team is still in playoff picture.

5.) 02 Feb 2020 04:12:45
Rkeene- ok that good. How bout 27 4 6 with better record That booker.

6.) 02 Feb 2020 13:41:38
I’d be fine with Booker making it.

7.) 03 Feb 2020 02:22:55
I will end the argument. Booker is a guard Ingram is a forward.

Rosters usually follow a 5-5-2 however, the West is already 6-4-2 before trying to add Booker. So the arguement is really who of Paul/ Westbrook/ Donovan are you taking out for Booker.

8.) 03 Feb 2020 16:26:13
Booker over CP3.

9.) 03 Feb 2020 16:39:13
Players are going to vote for their union rep as well as the "rabid" OKC fans. Like to know where Paul ranked against Booker in the fan voting.

10.) 03 Feb 2020 17:02:38
OKC definitely deserves an all star considering how unexpectedly good they’re doing. Booker likely has to make the playoffs to make an all star game without being an injury replacement.



31 Jan 2020 20:39:20
What team do you think is most likely to surprise out of everybody with a big deal or deals at the deadline?

I've got Indiana. They're doing a great job of building, but they're not going to beat the teams ahead of them without a big shakeup. I don't expect them to do a lot, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did.


1.) 31 Jan 2020 22:18:51
They could beat anybody in east other than bucks. I think they could make a trade but they don’t need it. They haven’t been healthy all year.

2.) 02 Feb 2020 13:42:05
Orlando always seems to do something big.

3.) 03 Feb 2020 00:09:01
Rockets usually do something when it’s quiet.

4.) 03 Feb 2020 15:42:42
The Rockets would be the least shocking team to make a big move.

On the opposite end, I’ve read Portland is strongly considering doing nothing, which would be a bit shocking.

5.) 04 Feb 2020 02:37:03
Damn, if i'm Dame and they do nothing, I’m livid. I get the injuries, but come on.



23 Jan 2020 13:00:11
What do you think your team will try to accomplish at the deadline... and what do you think they won't do?

For the Raptors, I don't think they will do anything to change the top 7 of the rotation unless there's a huge prize for doing so. Gasol is not having a great year but he's important to the defensive identity as well as directing the offense from the 5, so there's really only 3 or 4 players you could upgrade that spot with unless the Raptors wanted to change the way they play. Not a good idea at this point in the season... you could replace OG with a better offensive player but only if he's also a stud defensively, so not many options there.
More likely they look to improve the 8 and 9 spots in the rotation, or just pick up some depth in case of injury... Iggy from Memphis would look good but Toronto can't really match salary without touching the top 7, so I doubt it would happen...
More likely they are looking for a player in the 8M - 12M range who can be another defensive stopper. They could also look to get deeper with ball handlers as they usually start their 2 best point guards. A third one to slot into the 10 or 11 in the rotation for insurance against injury would be nice.


1.) 23 Jan 2020 13:26:58
At this point, their only movable players are McCaw. Johnson, plus picks. They should be able to get decent young talent or a good role player at the 8 spot in the rotation.

2.) 23 Jan 2020 13:56:10
Johnson McCaw '20 2nd '22 2nd for

3.) 23 Jan 2020 15:04:52
I think you could add Hollis-Jefferson to that list. Davis II might fetch something but I think they'd rather keep him. Boucher, Hernandez, Thomas, Miller potential salary filler.
there are assets there, but not enough to get Iggy or anyone else in that 15M plus range unless you traded all 8 guys not in your top 7, and that's not happening.

4.) 23 Jan 2020 18:34:16
I'd keep Davis, RHJ, Boucher, and Thomas. They have all been good.

sign and trade contracts must be at least 3 years.

You can bet Pat Riley is working up his trade offer for Embiid already. Jimmy wants him in Miami.

I could get behind signing Crawford, but I think if he signs anywhere he'd want more playing time than the Raptors are likely able to offer him.
Why would you want to sign Lin? . he couldn't contribute last year.
McCaw would be 4M dead money on next year's cap anyway and a productive, if inconsistent, player.

Fredman I hope you're right because then we can keep him. Rumors in our papers have the Knicks and Pistons ready to back up a Brink's truck for him because they are desperate and he looks like the shiniest bauble available this year.

Did you say Powell and OG and 5 first round picks for Giannis? . maybe. for Booker. never in a million years.
And yes, I know that that is what it would take (for Giannis) . but it doesn't mean its worth it for the Raptors.
No way Fred is signing for 3 yrs/ 40 M. 4 yrs 80M will be closer to what he gets. and why would Atlanta want him with Trae at the point? .
