I may be way off in terms of cap rules. And I'm probably going to be told this is a BS deal, but here goes. A deal this summer:

Minny gets CP3, Muscala
***KAT and D-Lo are in place and now the Wolves look for a true locker room leader. Paul is older but gives the team what Karl and Russell can't: leadership and culture. Look at what Paul has done for a Thunder squad that was counted out before the season even began. I'd dare say this would be a solid big 3 with room to grow. With multiple big salaries expiring, I think money wise this could work...

Thunder get James Johnson, Culver
***Johnson is a negative contract... but they'd cut almost $20M with this deal. They could slide SGA over to the point and start Culver. Johnson could be a bench guy and then maybe be a valuable expiring contract the following year (for teams chasing a chance at Giannis the following summer). Thunder could comfortably resign Gallo and chase a FA like maybe a DeRozan or something as a bridge player who needs a fresh start with lowered expectations.

SGA, Schroeder
Culver, Diallo
(DeRozan), Ferguson
Gallo, Bazley
Adams, Draft/Noel

Money is not close to working.

Not one chance Minnesota does this even if the money worked.

14 Mar 2020 22:02:17
DLo and CP3 in the same back court? Not seeing it.

Because the salaries in the trade don't match, you created the cap space that would be used to sign DeRozen. So you would be taking that off the table as well.

13 Mar 2020 14:17:30
Life will go on somehow in couple of time, strange but for the most of.

Since the CAP may decrease Mavs should go with good rookies on the scoring and paint role.

Trade Brunson, Jackson and #31 pick for a mid 1st somehow at #17.

- Steward
- Vassell

Spend another season to become a very good team.

Agree8 Disagree14

13 Mar 2020 20:07:27
Can't see a team with picks 14-18 wanting to do that trade. Those teams currently are Portland, Orlando, Minnesota, Boston, and Dallas (and you can't trade with yourself) .

13 Mar 2020 20:37:25
And Minny is the only team of the 4 projected to have the nearly $5 mil in cap space next year to take on Brunson and Jackson's salary. Just not seeing Minny doing this.

13 Mar 2020 23:32:12
Some how cockroaches and your bad trade ideas will live forever 🤣🤣.

14 Mar 2020 07:58:26
Stop posting and start cleaning your flat, man.

Piggybacking off of Gasupo's idea

Blazers get Dinwiddie and LeVert
Nets get McCollum and choice of Trent or Simons (maybe a first instead if they prefer) .

Agree7 Disagree19

12 Mar 2020 20:07:55
Nets save them for a Giannis trade package?

12 Mar 2020 20:20:37
I don't see the Nets having enough for a Giannis trade package. I guess they could though. I just don't see that BIG asset that the Bucks will want if they ever entertain the idea of moving him.

13 Mar 2020 00:47:18
They may never get that BIG asset either. Especially with him only having one year left on his deal. But a Giannis/ KD (healthy) / Kyrie team would be scary and probably give revamped Golden State a run.

13 Mar 2020 01:37:15
Kinda like the deal. Blazers need to try to change things.

13 Mar 2020 15:25:19
I agree they'd be really good. But wouldn't Atlanta be able to offer considerably more? Something like top 5 pick, Collins, Hunter/ Reddish, future pick (s) .

It probably depends on if the Bucks want to continue to contend for the playoffs or fully rebuild. Adding Dinwiddie and LeVert to that existing team makes a darn good team. Not the #1 seed in the east good, but definitely in the top 5 or 6 in the east still.

I also think Giannis will extend in early July. Just my gut, but I think he gets offered almost a quarter billion and takes it.

13 Mar 2020 16:35:04
If the Bucks weren’t getting back a high end asset, why wouldn’t they just play out the season? They’re a title contender. You don’t get many shots at it and Giannis seems more likely to stay than go as long as they’re close to a championship.

13 Mar 2020 20:39:57
Bmiller, is Giannis going to resign in ATL? Do you offer all that unless you KNOW the guy will resign. Thiz is thd AD-Boston-Lakers argument all over again.

13 Mar 2020 21:47:48
OKC did it with Paul George. Toronto with Leonard. I think taking a chance at the best player in the league, hoping you have enough talent to win a championship and convince him to stay (or win and he walks) is a pretty common practice.

14 Mar 2020 03:21:20
That’s y I see philly trading for Giannis or miami.

12 Mar 2020 10:00:30
Could the Nets get a third star for theses packages?

Nets: Beal
Was: Dinwidie+LeVert+ J Allen+3 first round picks

Phoenix:Dinwidie+LeVert+ 3 first round picks.

Nets- Bulls
Nets: LaVine
Bulls:Dinwidie+LeVert+ 1rnd pick

Portland:LeVert+Dinwidie+ 1rnd pick.

Agree4 Disagree18

12 Mar 2020 11:32:00
3rd deal is off for the Nets.

12 Mar 2020 13:44:21
way too much for any of those players, nets are better off with dinwidie and levert, let's not pull another boston celtics steal.

12 Mar 2020 14:19:50
Would I ever take that McCollum deal from a Portland perspective. Maybe even without the first.

12 Mar 2020 15:35:02
I didn't even look that close at the rest of the deals. That Bulls deal is pretty insane. I'd take Dinwiddie over Lavine straight up. Maybe LeVert over Lavine too.

I also wouldn't pay nearly that much for Booker.

12 Mar 2020 17:12:34
Giannis package.

14 Mar 2020 03:27:09
Irving need a good defensive sg next to him to be all the way effective like Oladipo or holiday.

19 Mar 2020 04:33:22
Well, you can be more realistic:
Nets: LaVine and Dunn
Bulls: J Allen, LeVert and 2 first round.

11 Mar 2020 22:12:25

CHI get Luke Kennard, Derrick Rose & '20 pick swap

Pg White/Rose/Arci
Sg Lavine/pick
Sf Kennard/Hutchinson
Pf Porter/Young
Ce Markkanen/Gafford/Felicio

DET get Wendell Carter & Tomas Satoransky

Pg Satoransky/Knight
Sg Brown/pick
Sf Doumboya/Snell
Pf Griffin/Maker
Ce Carter/Henson

Agree5 Disagree14

11 Mar 2020 23:01:48
Use lube next time. The Detroit puck is worth that package.

13 Mar 2020 04:30:58
I agree With 77 that pick can be top 5.

11 Mar 2020 20:32:32
Knicks offseason: Sign DeMar DeRozan
Trade: Mitchell Robinson for Kyle Lowry by declining all the team options for cap
Draft James wiseman

Raptors: sign VanVleet to deal
Maybe resign Ibaka to 1 year deal
Resign rhj to 1+1 team option
Resign Boucher to 1+1 team op

This more than likely won't happen but curious on others responses

Agree1 Disagree14

11 Mar 2020 21:15:29
So would you sign for a team that has a histroy of dumping their players and not picking up team options?

11 Mar 2020 21:51:53
I mean the Knicks suck but how can they improve if we just assume they won’t learn. Eventually they’ll be good again so oh well ( may take 5 more years) lol. Let me explain- DeMar is declining his player option if he and the spurs can't extend his contract and it seems the spurs may look into rebuilding as pop looks to retire soon. The Knicks r one of few teams with potential cap space. Then there was a rumor they would trade Robinson if they could get a decent point guard who can score in which Lowry can do. But also do it since him an DeRozan r best friends. Replacing Robinson would be wiseman who would be high risk potential high reward pick.

11 Mar 2020 23:20:19
Knicks not helping the Raptors, your ideas is sign of desperation for attention for response. Here you go.

11 Mar 2020 23:22:31
Knicks will be fine next yr.

11 Mar 2020 23:45:54
I don’t understand how Knicks fans can remain confident after all these years.

12 Mar 2020 00:02:18
So y’all assume I’m desperate, Knicks fan and want attention. I’m a Miami heat fan who is just tryna have fun and creativity and I mean if you’re on this then I’m pretty sure everyone wants some sort of attention. Some I made I tried to be realistic and some I went fantasy. The signing and trading for DeRozan and Lowry was fantasy while the raptors signing was meant to be realistic. I y’all to tel me your fav team an I’ll make a realistic guess for there offseason in a new post. I am sorry this is how y’all feel:)

12 Mar 2020 01:48:25
Bc the season is over.

12 Mar 2020 12:31:07
I don't see Raptors accepting a Mitchell for Lowry trade. Lowry is likely to retire a Raptor, he's earned it if he wants it. I only see him being traded if its a no-brainer decision (Giannis) or if he requests a trade (Phila? ) He's a god in the Toronto market, viewed by most as the best Raptor ever.

12 Mar 2020 12:39:54
Shizze please give me a team to do a ok realistic offseason plz. Also what do u mean by bc the season is over.

12 Mar 2020 17:14:23
Matrix, Miller said can knicks fan confident for the future. The answer because the season is over.

11 Mar 2020 17:38:35

Its not that simple. Raps are already over the cap, so they don't just get back all the expiring money. Still works though because most of what you're doing is resigning.
I wonder if you can get Gasol back on a year to year end of career dollars kinda deal. I think someone is going to offer better to Thompson.
rumors have Serge joining KD in Brooklyn, but Toronto will have more money to offer if he's happy here.
They have almost $87M committed next year on a $115M cap. cap holds for serge and Gasol will keep them from signing anyone outside until they are signed for less or renounced. Fred's is 17M, which is probably more like what he's going to get paid.

11 Mar 2020 21:25:09
How far was Toronto over the salary cap before these deals expired? 16 mil? Cap went up 6 mil. So you basically have $8 mil to sign Thompson. Good luck!

11 Mar 2020 21:56:28
Siakam is also starting at 29 (not 27), so 6.

12 Mar 2020 12:52:05
Could we maybe sign Olynyk or M. Leonard to 6.5 and Dotson to 1.5?

12 Mar 2020 15:36:51
Leonard would probably be a solid fit in Toronto, and I don't think he'll see more than that kind of offer. Seems to fit.

11 Mar 2020 09:38:45

BKN: K.Love, M.Bamba & future top 18 protected 1st CLE
HOU: D.Jordan & G.Temple
CLE: A.Gordon & Dzanan Musa
ORL: E.Gordon & S.Dinwiddie

BKN get their 3rd star to pair with KD & Kyrie (hire coach Lue, resign Harris)


HOU get a big body down low and a 3 and D wing


CLE get rid of Love without giving up significant assets while getting 1 back


ORL get 2 scoring guards which they need offensively


Agree3 Disagree14

11 Mar 2020 13:00:26
D. Jordan is in the Kyrie/ KD clique. He is not going anywhere.
