Covington/Johnson/Maten
Adebayo/Howard/Haslem

12 Jul 2019 17:53:22
We get it. 3 teams get get screwed and the Heat get Beal. Get real. The Heat don’t have the assets unless they’re getting Wall and even then, the Wiz likely pass.

12 Jul 2019 20:12:27
Ah, Heat already traded their 2023 1st round pick.

Try to keep up.

12 Jul 2019 22:11:22
And because of the protections on the 2023 pick, Miami can only trade the "protected" portion of that pick to OKC.

12 Jul 2019 04:07:09
Thunder - Timberwolves

Thunder gets:
Teague (expiring)
Dieng
2020 1st rd pick (lottery protected)

Timberwolves gets:
CP3

12 Jul 2019 04:05:11
Thunder - Timberwolves

Thunder gets:
Wiggins
Napier (expiring)
Graham (expiring)

Timberwolves gets:
CP3

12 Jul 2019 11:22:03
The value is fair, but I wouldn’t want to bring Wiggins into a rebuild. That seems like a no win situation for both sides.

12 Jul 2019 12:18:58
Rkeene- no pressure in okc Wiggins might shine as number one option.

12 Jul 2019 03:17:47
OKC - Timberwolves

OKC receives:
Gorgui Dieng
Jeff Teague
2020, 2022, and 2024 first rounders (let me know if/what protections there should be)

Timberwolves receive:
Chris Paul

I put three picks instead of two because of Dieng's contract
Also, Okogie is an option to be included

Timberwolves Lineup
Paul
Culver
Wiggins
Covington
Towns

12 Jul 2019 03:44:15
Just 1 pick needs to be included maybe 2 at most. Both Teague and Dieng contracts are close to expiring while CP3 will cost over 30 million for 3 more years.

12 Jul 2019 04:05:53
I understand where you’re coming from, but Dieng is 30 has 2 years at about 16 a year. Also, it was reported that OKC is tryna get under the luxury tax this trade wouldn’t allow them to do that and that’s why I included an extra pick.

12 Jul 2019 11:22:56
Paul has probably the 3rd worse contract in the league.

11 Jul 2019 11:47:29
Pistons - Thunder - Timberwolves

Pistons gets:
Westbrook

Thunder gets:
Dieng
Snell
2020 1st Timberwolves (lottery protected)
2021 1st Pistons (unprotected)
2023 1st Pistons (lottery protected)

Timberwolves gets:
Jackson (expiring)
Whitehead (expiring)

Pistons gets a star that will get attendance up in their new arena.

Thunder gets more picks for the future and can go full rebuild.

Timberwolves move Diengs contract and only lose their pick if they make the playoffs.

10 Jul 2019 20:04:07
If Raptors year it down at midseason

Twolves - Ibaka(exp)
Raptors - Wiggins 2020 1st and future 2nds

Magic - Lowry (exp)
Raptors - Fultz Aminu and Fournier

Celtics - Gasol (exp) and McCaw
Raptors - Hayward and both 2020 1sts (Bos and Mem)

FVF/Wiggins/Hayward/Boucher/Siakam
Fultz/Fournier/Johnson/OG/FA

Teague/Culver/Covington/Ibaka/Towns

Lowry/Ross/Aminu/Gordon/Vucevic

Kemba/Smart/Brown/Tatum/Gasol

10 Jul 2019 21:50:29
How is Aminu traded and in magic starting 5?

10 Jul 2019 23:44:13
Meant to put Isaac in the lineup not Aminu.

11 Jul 2019 10:07:21
The Memphis pick is off the table in any tradee offer, unless it's for a Superstar, which of course can't happen.

11 Jul 2019 12:34:05
Why would Toronto want Wiggins deal if they tear it down? Raps primed for major cap space next year, would want lesser quality players on expiring deals, decent prospects and picks if they are moving guys like Lowry.

13 Jul 2019 21:38:17
love the idea of having Wiggins for Ibaka.

if they do a straight swap Raptors would be a better team. not championship but playoff team with potential. then next year use siakim and Wiggins as there core with freddy and og.

10 Jul 2019 18:25:48
CHARLOTTE, HOUSTON AND MINNY

Charlotte out Batum, MKG and HGomez
Houston out Capela and Gordon
Twolves out Wiggins and a pic

Charlotte in Capela and Wiggins
Houston in Batum, HGomez and TWolves pic

Twolves in MKG and Gordon

Charlotte gives Wiggins a fresh start. Houston gets a vet wing to pair with Harden and Twolves get out off Wiggins contract while get expiring contracts with serviceable players.

09 Jul 2019 16:13:59
Thunder - Timberwolves

Thunder gets:
Wiggins
Covington
2021 1st rd pick (Unprotected)
2023 1st rd pick (Lottery protected)

Timberwolves gets:
Westbrook
Patterson

09 Jul 2019 14:19:04
since Kawhi is gone Raptors should trade Ibaka and OG.

to the Twolves for Wiggins and a first round pick.

rebuild with younger players and. bring home a canadian player.

with wiggins and the roster they have they would still be a good team and playoff team with a chance if all healthy.

09 Jul 2019 15:42:31
I'd rather have OG and his cheap rookie deal than Wiggins and a first by quite a bit.

11 Jul 2019 13:46:16
yah but wiggins is a much better player to build around and Raptors have all there picks and will have 65 plus million next season for free agents. if they fire sell this Feb they might have more picks and possible be a lottery team if they trade before the season. Wiggins siakim and freddy would be a good start.

09 Jul 2019 12:22:45
Okc gets Biyombo, Williams, Minny 2020 first, Charlotte 2020 first, Charlotte 2022 first

Hornets get Russ, Wiggins

Minnesota gets Batum, 2020 Chicago 2nd via OKC

Okc gets expiring money next summer, cut ~$6M now which ducks them under the luxury, and add 3 firsts. Bring on the rebuild.

Hornets go for a big splash. They take on major money moving forward to bring some relevance to the team after losing Kemba. The Rozier/Westbrook backcourt might work out.

Minnesota trims two years of salary by taking on Batum who could be a better fit anyways. Lose a first. Might be worth it.

Thoughts?

09 Jul 2019 14:05:36
Minnesota shouldn't give up a 1st to swap Wiggins for Batum.

08 Jul 2019 21:12:33
Rockets - Westbrook and Dieng(exp)
Twolves - Cp3 Roberson(exp) and Gordon (exp)
Thunder - Teague(exp) Wiggins Okogie and 2 1st from Houston

Westbrook
Harden
Green
Tucker
Capela

CP3
Gordon
Culver
Covington
Towns

Schroder/Teague
Ferguson
Wiggins
Gallo
Adams
- Thunder looks to trade Adams and Schroder

08 Jul 2019 23:20:02
So Paul, Gordon and 2 firsts = Westbrook? Me persoanlly, I would rather have Paul/ Gordon/ Picks. But I am all about Westbrook going to be with Harden and watching it all unravel.

08 Jul 2019 13:03:45
The Warriors would consider trading current fan-favorite Stephen Curry to another team. Kerr wants Curry to Lakers. Others want him to Suns, Timberwolves or Pelicans.

08 Jul 2019 14:50:00
Not sure why would consider it. They have 4 all stars on their team. They have the most talent of any team in the NBA, and are set to compete for championships for the next few years so long as they can retain Green.

Also, why in the world would they want to trade him to the Lakers? And what do the Laker have to trade? (the answer is nothing unless they're including AD) .

08 Jul 2019 15:11:24
I think the GS run is over, but they still have one off the best teams in the league. So why break up a team that could make it to the finals, sells jerseys and seats?

I do believe they should trade a player, because i don't like a backourt with Curry and Russell. but they should only trade Curry if he wants out and for a steep price.

08 Jul 2019 10:33:40
Thunder - Timberwolves

Thunder gets:
Teague (Expiring)
Dieng
Covington
2023 1st rd pick (Unprotected)
2025 1st rd pick (Top 10 protected)

Timberwolves gets:
Westbrook
Roberson (Expiring)
Nader (Expiring)

08 Jul 2019 13:45:55
Hell no from Minnesota. Westbrook, Wiggins, and Towns all on max deals wrecks the salary cap for Minnesota.

Plus, Covington, on his contract, is a better value than Westbrook on his.

Only deal Minnesota should consider is Wiggins, Teague, and either Okogie or a future 1st round pick for Westbrook and Roberson.

08 Jul 2019 05:43:25
I would like to see the Pacers make 1 more move. Not a big fan of Doug McDermott's play. Sorry Doug but your defense is atrocious.
According to Yahoo Sports Minnesota may make Robert Covington Available in a trade. So....

Pacers receive Robert Covington
Minnesota Receives McDermott + 1 or 2 future second round picks.

When Victor returns you are looking at:

Sabonis/Leaf
Warren/Covington
Turner/Bitadze
Oladipo/Lamb
Brogdon/Holiday

Covington would be the oldest player at 28 and these young men could be together for a few years.

08 Jul 2019 06:14:48
Minny will get better offers for Covington. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up on Golden State as part of a package for Dangelo Russell. RoCo essentially becomes Iggy's replacement on the Warriors.

08 Jul 2019 16:33:41
You mat be right in that Minnesota may get better offers but I don't think one of them will be from Golden State. i believe they are "hard capped" so unless they can find a way to send more salary out then the salary due RoCo then it not in the cards. Still it would be nice to see him added to this Pacer team.

08 Jul 2019 18:53:47
Roco + Teague for Dlo + Jacob Evans keeos the Warriors under the hard cap.

09 Jul 2019 21:52:11
That would keep them under but why would they trade Russell after they jumped through hoops to get him?

08 Jul 2019 00:14:30

Luka/ Curry
Covington/ DFS
Porzingis/ Powell
Adams/ Boban.

07 Jul 2019 21:46:26
Ryan Anderson waived.

07 Jul 2019 21:48:59
Why would okc help Miami, when they have two Miami picks?

07 Jul 2019 22:07:48
Do you really think they will make Butler happy with wiggins?

07 Jul 2019 22:40:07
And Miami doesn't own its 2023 first round pick. It will be in the ha ds of OKC when the Paul George trade is completed. Kinda funny that you are trying to trade it "twice" to OKC.

The earliest pick that Miami can trade is 2025 (exculding trading their 2020 pick on draft day) . Yup, 5 years from now.

I think to get Westbrook it will take Winslow + Herro + 2 future picks + expiring salary filler (Leonard + Dragic? )

08 Jul 2019 01:39:19
Open up $30 million in cap space for next summer to sign who exactly? 2020 free agency class supposed to be very bad.

07 Jul 2019 12:28:47
Simple, but helps everyone.

Rockets get Iguodala

Grizzlies get Wiggins and Rockets 1st

Twolves get Gordon, Kyle Anderson and Rockets 2nd

Rockets get a guy they want and need.

Grizzlies get young guy who needs a change of scenery.

Twolves get much needed wing depth for a playoff push.

07 Jul 2019 12:42:46
Gordon is best player in trade.

07 Jul 2019 14:05:33
I don’t like that for Memphis at all, and agree with shizzee as well.

07 Jul 2019 22:04:55
Gordon for igggy.

05 Jul 2019 18:37:36
So here's a three team trade

MIN/OKC/CLE

Minnesota gets Jr Smith

Cleveland gets Steven Adams, Andrew Wiggins, T-Wolves 2023 first, OKC 2024

OKC get Kevin love

This works out perfectly for the wolves to get rid of the terrible Andrew Wiggins contract and have an expiring deal on JR. Cleveland gets a solid Center in Adams and two first round picks. OKC get the third player to pair with Westbrook and George and the Chemistry could be really good with love and Westbrook going to college together

05 Jul 2019 19:36:27
And this gets Cleveland under the luxury cap how exactly? Why would the Cavs be willing to pay the luxury tax (again) when this still will not be a playoff team? For a couple of 1sts in the distant future? Just stop.

05 Jul 2019 20:32:28
The Cavs don’t even get enough back to take on Wiggins.

05 Jul 2019 21:18:32
Twolves rather pay Wiggins shorter deal than love.

02 Jul 2019 15:06:12
Say next summer Towns requests a trade from the Timberwolves. How about this:

Golden State gets Covington
New York gets Towns and Russell
Minnesota gets Poole, Robinson, Barrett, Knicks 2020 1st round pick (probably top 5), Knicks 2022 and 2024 1st round picks, and both Dallas 1st round picks that the Knicks have.

02 Jul 2019 16:22:15
GS only gets Covington out of Russell? Seems really light. I'd think Robinson (if he continues to progress) or both Dallas picks would need to go to GS.

02 Jul 2019 16:27:11
I don't know. Kinda seeing a Russell for Roco+Deing deal.

02 Jul 2019 17:21:04
An all star (even a lower tier one) for a moderate role player and a horrible contract? Why not just keep Russell if that's the case?

Maybe I'm just not that high on Covington as other are, but I think Russell and McCollum are similar tier players. And if Portland considered a Covington and Dieng for McCollum swap I'd consider burning the Moda Center to the ground.

Same with Heild or Fox. Would you consider either of them for Covington? I think they're comparable to Russell, and I think a Heild or Fox swap with Covington would be a horrible swap.

02 Jul 2019 18:13:27
If Golden State re-signs Draymond, they will be hard capped for the foreseeable future. Meaning they can only add via the draft and minimum contracts. Swapping Russell for Covington not only helps them with financial flexibility, hey brings all NBA defense with him.

If Golden State does try to trade Russell, they won't find a better player who is on a cheaper contract.

02 Jul 2019 18:57:03
I think GS can use Deing better than Minny has done. Yea, the numbers aren't "great", but its not like GS has a ton of talented big men.

02 Jul 2019 21:26:58
Is Dieng a talented big man? I think if he were a free agent this year, he'd be a min level guy. I think I'd take Tolliver (who just signed for min) over Dieng. They should be bringing back Jordan Bell, who I'd probably take over Dieng.

And again carl, I think I don't think as highly of Covington as you. They might not be able to find a better player for that little money, but I think they can get more value out of Russel than that. If Saric was still in Minny, I think those two for Russell would have been a more interesting trade.

02 Jul 2019 05:10:18
I think it can’t be over emphasized how important it is for the Clippers to beat the Lakers to Kawai. Getting a Lebron stopper would really be an on the court symbol for the Clippers standing up to the Lakers and it would continue to engrain an identity in the Clippers franchise. Having said that, Kawai’s Laker interest and apparent call to KD pre-FA has illustrated that Kawai does significantly value having a co-star. If that’s the case the Clippers HAVE to get one. Therefore.

Clippers send: SGA and the 2021 Heat 1st round pick, Danillo Gallinari
Clippers receive: Bradley Beal

Wizards send: Bradley Beal
Wizards receive: SGA and the 2021 Heat 1st round pick, Andrew Wiggins, Josh Okogie, 2021 Timberwolves pick Top 4 protected.

Timberwolves send: Andrew Wiggins, Josh Okogie, 2021 1st round pick top 4 protected
Timberwolves receive: Danillo Gallinari

Basically, I’m sure the Clippers have already investigated this but were probably hoping to hold out either SGA or the pick and plug Shamet in instead. But now it’s crunch time, the Clippers got to make a move and concede to giving both pieces. Then the Wizards know they are going to suck and pass Gallinari on to Minnie to get the young pieces that come with taking on Wiggins deal. Wizards get an absolute hall for this deal.

Clippers:
Beverly
Shamet
Beal
Kawai
Zubac
All the spacing Plus the elite bench

Wizards:
SGA
Okogie
Wiggins
Jabari Parker
Mahimi

Wolves:
Jeff Teague
Culver
Covington
Gallinari
KAT.

02 Jul 2019 07:20:10
I like it, excellent and creative idea. It’s a tough pill for the clippers to swallow, but if it means you’re getting kawhi then you have to do it.

02 Jul 2019 10:05:59
There’s no way the wizards are taking on Wiggins in a Beal deal and the T wolves aren’t giving up enough to get off him.

02 Jul 2019 15:09:12
Clippers aren't giving up Shai. They will give up Gallinari, Shamet, Thornwell, Wallace, both Miami picks, and one of their future 1sts. If Robinson needs to be thrown in, they would do that too.

02 Jul 2019 16:35:44
I understand the wolves want to get rid of Wiggins’ contract, but at the cost of Josh Okogie and two firsts? No thank you.

02 Jul 2019 16:36:07
1 first. My point stands.

02 Jul 2019 16:52:41
One guy says that’s too high of a cost to get rid of Wiggins, another says it’s not enough. Maybe splitting the difference is an appropriate price.

And GPack, none of that gets the Beal deal done, SGA is the centerpiece, the Wizards can’t make a deal and not even get the best young asset on the team they are trading with.
