CLE/POR

CLE- Love

POR- Whiteside, Trent Jr., 20+24 1st

Love is good fit in Portland. If they wait till Nurkic comes back they won't need Whiteside and they can find out if Love can stay heathy.

okc fire sale

okc : N Batum,B Biyombo, 1 first round pick

Hornets: C Paul,P Patterson.

Okc save money for next years and take a pick. hornets fans can watch some good players.

Okc: T Hardaway jr, 1 first round pick or 2 second round

Dallas : D Gallinari


Okc: H whiteside , J Nurkic,1 first round pick
Por: S Adams, D Schroder

I don't like whiteside and I don't know how Nurkic will come back. Adams can be very good in portland system.

12 Jul 2019 18:29:58
Is it safe to say OKC is having a fire sale? If so, Gallinari, Schroder, Adams, and CP must go... .not to mention, in ideal landing spots for them as long as a pick is obtainable..

OKC receive a pick and C. Parson
Atl receive Adams

Young
Reddish
Hunter
Collins
Adams

That looks like a wrecking squad in 2-3 years. Parsons may even agree to a buyout. And if not, he comes off the books after the year.

Bulls receive Schroder
OKC receive Felicio and Dunn

No picks but quality back up and potential starter in Felicio.

Blazers receive Gallinari
OKC receive Bazemore and a 1st.

Blazers need a stretch 4 to open the floor for Whiteside/Nurkic and take some of the scoring load at times

As for CP3, there are no contenders in need of a point guard. Best situation:

Magic receive: CP3, pick
OKC receive: Fournier, Bamba, Fultz

Magic get a wonderful facilitator with complementary pieces....

Not to mention, OKC reset financially with some building blocks in Bamba, Felicio, and SGA with Fultz being a ?....

12 Jul 2019 21:36:08
Presti wins gm of the year if he trades russ and cp3 in same month. Lol.

12 Jul 2019 14:01:40
Portland: Beal

Minny: McCollum

Was: A Wiggins+ 1rnd pick Portland 2020+ 1rnd pick Minny 2020 and 2022

12 Jul 2019 15:34:21
I don't think I'd trade McCollum straight up for Beal. They're fairly close in quality (McCollum would be an all star in Washington), and McCollum seems happy in Portland and fits really good with Lillard stylistically and personally.

Also, Lillard/ Beal doesn't go any farther in the playoffs than Lillard/ McCollum. Portland needs to add to their guards, not just get a sidegrade other guard.

12 Jul 2019 16:45:14
Beal is two years younger and a better defender.
I like McCollum, but i believe Beal is the better player.

12 Jul 2019 22:24:57
Contracts are really all that matter, and they both have two years left.

Beal is better, but I’d said it’s a very tiny upgrade. Not enough to push them ahead of anyone they’re not already ahead. It’s just not enough of an upgrade to waste the time in doing it.

10 Jul 2019 09:49:58
OKC/ORL/POR

OKC get Bamba, Fultz, Bazemore (exp), ORL & POR 1st round pick, POR 2nd round pick

* will soon trade Adams, Schroeder as salary dump
* Gallinari may gain an asset

Pg SGA/Schroeder/Fultz
Sg Ferguson/Diallo
Sf Bazemore/Roberson/Nader
Pf Gallinari/Patterson
Ce Adams/Bamba/Noel/Bazley

ORL get Westbrook & Little
* get a star point guard

Pg Westbrook/Augustin
Sg Fournier/Iwundu
Sf Ross/Little
Pf Isaac/Martin
Ce Vucevic/Birch

POR get Gordon
if they can get him for this value it will be a steal

Pg Lillard/Simons
Sg McCollum/Trent
Sf Hood/Shumpert?
Pf Gordon/Collins
Ce Whiteside/Nurkic

10 Jul 2019 13:08:31
Orlando is giving way too much. Probably Magic keep Fultz or get Zach Collins in return. Smart trade though making POR serious contenders.

10 Jul 2019 13:20:04
Okc salary dump? May be too late for that as most teams hsve used up most of their avaolable cap space. No team with more than $5 mil in cap space jumps to mind.

10 Jul 2019 14:56:50
I like it. It all hinges on Orlando wanting Westbrook, but assuming they do it seems like solid value across the board.

Maybe it's just that I love it for Portland, but whatever, I do. I think Gordon would be a great fit. If they could get him without giving up Collins or Simons, it's a steal.

08 Jul 2019 05:33:47
Marc Gasol top 3 destinations

To Boston for Gordon Hayward and Romeo Langford

To San Antonio for Patty Mills, Marco Bellineli and Keldon Johnson

To Portland for Kent Bazemore, Zack Collins and Nassir Little

08 Jul 2019 06:15:13
That third trade is way too much. I don’t think I’d i close either of Little or (especially) Collins for Gasol. Also, what is Portland going to do with Nurkic, Whiteside, and Gasol?

08 Jul 2019 06:19:25
Cant see Toronto "helping" Boston, but I could see that Spurs deal happening if the salaries match. Any chance of sending Derozen back to Toronto?

08 Jul 2019 18:46:46
Spurs trade doesn't work.
Boston wouldn't do that trade, maybe a TD move if the need is there.
Don't think Portland would do it either.

05 Jul 2019 23:52:13
Boston gets Adams, Roberson, Patterson
Portland gets Hayward, okc 2nd, Boston 2nd
Okc gets Bazemore, Nurkic, Grant Williams

Boston gets their big. I'd love to see what Brad Stevens could do with a guy like Roberson...

Portland is all in. They could be lethal with Dame, Mccollum, Hayward, Hood, Whiteside on the floor.

Okc cuts a bit of salary, adds shooting, and gets a young asset.

06 Jul 2019 00:29:45
You had me up until Nurkic was in it.

06 Jul 2019 01:45:19
Dear old fans nobody wants Schroder, Adam's or Roberson.

06 Jul 2019 02:32:57
Portland is favorite in West next yr.

06 Jul 2019 04:30:51
Why Denver and utah not playing?

06 Jul 2019 04:43:57
I might not even trade Bazemore for Hayward straight up. Adding Nurkic is just a joke.

03 Jul 2019 19:01:14
I think Portland needs one more piece after acquiring Whiteside.

I think they should look to acquire Kevin Love

If Whiteside is working out great or Nurkic is struggling to find his footing since coming back from injury.

POR trades:

Kent Bazemore
Jusuf Nurkic
A 1st round pick (or 2)

for Kevin Love

OR

If Whiteside isn't playing well or Nurkic is playing really well.

POR trades:

Hassan Whiteside
2 1st round picks

for Kevin Love


Once they get Love, Portland's lineup would be either:

PG: Lillard - Simons
SG: McCollum - Hood - Trent Jr.
SF: Bazemore - Hezonja - Little
PF: Love - Labissiere
C: Whiteside - Z. Collins

or

PG: Lillard - Simons
SG: McCollum - Hezonja
SF: Hood - Little
PF: Love - Labissiere
C: Nurkic - Z. Collins

I don't know if this would put the Blazers in the "Title contender" category because I think they need another wing (like Robert Covington would be a perfect fit) but I think this lineup would put the Blazers a hell of a lot closer to that category.

Thoughts?

03 Jul 2019 19:01:45
This would definitely happen around the trade deadline.

03 Jul 2019 21:13:25
It would have to be the second one to me. Nurkic is head and shoulders better than Whiteside, and he's locked in on a cheap deal. I wouldn't give him up for Love, and I wouldn't hitch my wagon to a guy like Whiteside.

01 Jul 2019 17:03:38
Portland trades Zach Collins
Boston trades Jaylen Brown

I know Boston fans will scoff, but curious what impartial fans think of the value swap. This would then assume Portland lands a new starting PF (Love, Griffin, Gordon), but that's for another line of thought.

01 Jul 2019 17:27:55
I like this deal for Boston
I believe J Brown has a higher cealing, but Z Collins is a good fit in Boston

I hope Portland can land K Love or A Gordon, not sure how Griffin, McCollum and Lillard can play together.

01 Jul 2019 18:09:50
And Portland traded for Whiteside, so they need to keep Collins to play beside him. I like the fit of Whiteside as a temporary replacement for Nurkic. Then they have a massive expiring contract at the trade deadline.

01 Jul 2019 19:39:40
Yeah, that won't happen. Brown is a starting wing, Collins a lower-rotation big. Flip Nurkic for Collins and that might get it done.

01 Jul 2019 20:08:28
Collins is Portland's starting 4 (and last year was their primary backup big) . And Brown is Boston's third best wing (if you believe in Hayward, which Boston does) .

(Ignoring injury concerns) Nurkic is way more valuable than Brown. No way I'd consider that swap.

Again, all moot with Whiteside in Portland.

01 Jul 2019 20:16:17
Maybe Collins + Simons.

30 Jun 2019 22:31:53
Final 2 Blazers moves

Blazers - Mills and Walker
Spurs - Harkless(exp) and Collins

- Blazers have needed a stable backup PG for awhile and Mills also offers defense on the perimeter and could play offball to ether Dame or CJ. Walker adds SG depth
- Spurs add much needed forward depth and exp contract. Spurs have Forbes and Johnson now so Walker is expendable. Add another big which they need.

Blazers - MKG
Hornets - Leonard(exp) and Trent

- Blazers might lose Aminu but get another excellent lockdown defender at the forward position
- Hornets get a exp contract and a shooting prospect

Lillard/Mills/Simons
McCollum/Walker
Bazemore/Layman
MKG/Little/Skal
Nurkic/Kanter

30 Jun 2019 22:36:49
Hard pass on the first. Simons is being given the keys to the backup guard position per local reporters. And I like Collins upside way too much to give away.

30 Jun 2019 22:53:49
Simons definitely isn’t ready for a ton of minutes yet.

30 Jun 2019 23:22:06
These moves seem like lateral moves to me. Acquiring Mills, MKG, and Walker (who basically plays like Nassir Little (whom they just drafted) ) won't push the Blazers into the contender category. I feel like they should try to acquire another star to go along with Dame and C. J.

Kevin Love Deal?

Cavs get Meyers Leonard, Moe Harkless, and a 1st (or 2)

Blazers get Kevin Love

Thoughts?

01 Jul 2019 00:18:21
He might not be ready, but he’s getting those minutes.

30 Jun 2019 20:04:49
This just in, (Rumored) D. Lillard and the Blazers, finalizing a super max contract. 4 years, 196 Mil. OR 49 Mil. a year!! WOW!!

30 Jun 2019 20:39:01
100% worth it in every way. As a Blazer fan, I couldn’t be happier to get him to commit to another 4 years.

01 Jul 2019 15:04:54
4 more second round exits.

27 Jun 2019 02:56:09
Apparently a Cleveland fan thinks this is a fair trade. This was posted on a Timberwolves fan site.

Portland gets Love
Minnesota gets Leonard, Harmless, Zizic, Little, and a 1st from Portland
Cleveland gets Wiggins, Covington, and 3 1sts from Minnesota

What do you think?

27 Jun 2019 13:49:08
Seems like a lot from Portland. Two firsts and they increase their payroll/ luxury tax is a heavy price for Love.

27 Jun 2019 16:00:55
It’s plausible. I think some of the moving pieces could be a little different to make it better for everyone and/ or a 4th team could be added, but it’s decent.

26 Jun 2019 10:36:18
Portland-Charlotte

Portland get Nicolas Batum

Charlotte get Moe Harkless & Myers Leonard

26 Jun 2019 13:50:37
Portland would need a pick or asset to take back a worse (non expiring) contract and more money.

27 Jun 2019 02:58:45
I'd rather have hype man Myers Lenard and moody Mo than watch Batum stand in the corner again.

26 Jun 2019 10:02:07
Portland: G Hayward

Boston: Leonard+ Harkless+ Ntilikina

NY: Labisierre+ 2rnd pick Boston

26 Jun 2019 13:53:39
If Portland could get Hayward out of their expiring contracts I’d be incredibly excited. If he rounded back into 90% of what he was, he’d be a perfect fit with their guards.

27 Jun 2019 03:04:04
I only see this happening after the Knicks strike out in FA and decided to take salary dumps.

26 Jun 2019 09:10:38
Cavs Portland

Cavs receive
Bazemore
Harkless
Little
2020 Portland first round pick
2022 Portland first round pick (top 10 protected)
2022 Portland second round pick


Portland receives
Love
Osman

26 Jun 2019 12:24:31
I am not a portland or Cavs fan, but ypu are not getting 3 first rounders for love.

26 Jun 2019 15:45:22
I've gotten fully off the Kevin Love to Portland bandwagon. I think if you removed all the picks I'd still be disappointed as a Blazer fan.

That's more of a package for Griffin.

27 Jun 2019 03:05:07
That's terrible for Portland. Love is aging, over paid, and injury prone why would Portland also give up picks?

25 Jun 2019 01:04:37
Not a typical NY move, But NY should take bad contracts and draftpicks if they fail to land KD and Irving

1) Clippers-NY
NY: Gallinari+1rnd pick Miami 2021
Clippers: 2rnd pick

2)NY-Boston
Boston: Ntilikina
NY: G Hayward+ 1rnd pick Memphis+ 2rnd pick Boston

3) NY-Portland
NY:Leonard+ 1rnd pick Portland
Portland: 2rnd pick Knicks



NY:
C:Robinson/Leonard
PF: Gallinari/Hicks/Kornet
SF:G Hayward/Knox
SG:Barret/Trier
PG:D Smith/Mudiay

Draft picks:
2020: Knicks, Portland, Memphis
2021: Knicks, Miami,Dallas
2022:Knicks
2023: Knicks,Dallas

They can develop the young players, they have 9 1st round draft picks in 4 year and they can hit the 2021 free agent market (Giannis).

25 Jun 2019 05:19:12
Woah no way on the Galo trade, your making the Clippers give up the best draft asset in the NBA to dump a guy who’s kinda reasonably priced. Besides, who is the second star that is worth the max and is considering the Clippers after Kawai? No point in getting more cap, Better to keep Galo who’s not a terrible fit with Kawai.

25 Jun 2019 10:06:11
No way the Celtics make that deal.

25 Jun 2019 13:04:38
Turner for Frank Ntilikina.

25 Jun 2019 13:06:05
After gasol and now Porzingis no white player makes sense under this coach staff.

25 Jun 2019 16:55:55
Portland isn't giving up a first to reduce their cap considering they're not getting under the cap with that move. Why not save their expiring deals and see if they can swing a big move with them? Or just let them expire next offseason and keep the assets.

Brooklyn paying to unload Crabbe makes sense, they're freeing up functional cap space. A team over the cap paying to be slightly less over the cap is just illogical.

24 Jun 2019 23:18:26
Trade done: Blazers swap Evan Turner to the Hawks for Kent Bazemore.

Seems good for both. Atlanta uses Turner as a backup PG, and clears space for young wings.

Portland gets an upgrade at wing that they desperately need.

25 Jun 2019 05:17:03
games? Is an upgrade?

24 Jun 2019 20:10:02
POR-IND-MIN

POR gets TJ Warren
Sign Boogie 4yr/ 40 mil
Reign Hood

IND get Leonard and Wiggins, and 2rd pick via POR 2021

MIN get Myles Turner and TJ leaf


Lilard
McCollum/ Hood
Warren/ Little
Aminu/ Collins
Cousins/ (Nurkic)

24 Jun 2019 20:51:07
I'd take the trade in a second if I'm Portland. I like Warren a lot there. Haaaaaard pass on Cousins though, especially with Nurkic on the team. They couldn't play together, and Nurkic is a better fit (and player) .

I don't see why Indy is taking Wiggins though. Seems really bad for them unless they think he can make a big change.

25 Jun 2019 00:18:57
I would consider taking Wiggins. If there's a team that can get the best out a player, it's Indy. But we need minimum three draft picks if we do this trade.

24 Jun 2019 09:26:50
Getting interested in some 4-way deals, yes kinda fantasy trade but who gets better/worse?
