To use their trade exception Mavs should force two sign and trades:

Mavs: S6T Wright 3y 30m and MCS 3y 30m each with a team option
Grizzlies: Burke 1y 3m, 2x future 2nd
Kings: future 2nd

It may to much money for Grizzlies to match, since they have Morant.

MCS, Powell, Ante, Mejri
Porzee, Maxi
xxx, FinneyS, Roby
Doncic, Hardaway
Wright, Brunson, Curry, Barea

03 Jul 2019 03:14:48
WCS signed with the Warriors for a little more than the minimum. Should have taken that $6 mil QO.

02 Jul 2019 14:11:04
How about this three team trade

Warriors get
C Dwight Howard
Pf / willie Cauly stein
Sf bobby Simmons

Sacramento get
Pf Bobby Portis sign and trade
C Ian Mahimi
Warriors future 2 nd pick

C Demarcus Cousin sign in trade
Pg S Livingston

02 Jul 2019 15:04:37
Um, Bobby Portis already agreed to a contract with the Knicks.

And Bobby Simmons hasn't played a game in the NBA since 2012.

02 Jul 2019 16:30:44
WCS is a unrestricted Free agent now. Kings pulled their QO.

01 Jul 2019 14:35:50
Okc gets Bogdanovic, Bjelica, Sexton, Ferrel

Cavs get Adams, Patterson, Ferguson, Chicago 2nd via OKC

Kings get Love, Schröder

Cavs offload Love and can buyout Smith and Patterson for big savings. They don't need Sexton after drafting Garland. Ferguson could be a nice fit next to Garland tho.

Kings didn't want to do a Bogdanovic for Adams swap, but I could see them doing a Bogdanovic for Love swap. They also grab Schröder to backup Fox.

Okc gets shooting, cap relief. They bring back Noel at the MLE and trade Dre to Washington for Simmons and Howard. Cut Nader.

Russ, Sexton, Felton
Bogdanovic, Ferrel, Burton
George, Simmons, Diallo
Grant, Bjelica, Bazley
Noel, Howard, Muscala

01 Jul 2019 14:47:59
the Cavs turn this down in a hurry.

01 Jul 2019 15:00:33
Kings laugh then leak it so others can giggle.

01 Jul 2019 19:29:41
Damn, Shiller. You beat me to it.

Kings just spent $37 mil on Fox's backup and Love is no better than Adams in the Kings eyes. We want MOBILE big men that can block and shoot. Whiteside would have been more interesting than Love or Adams.

01 Jul 2019 07:24:28

Kings : Anderson, Herro

01 Jul 2019 14:14:32
No cap space left by Kings to take Anderson.

02 Jul 2019 17:10:30
I doubt Miami gets another center who can't shoot after all the Whiteside problems. And Herro is a pure shooter. doesn't make sense.

01 Jul 2019 04:38:52
Called it a couple weeks back

KD for Dlo sign and trade

Warriors will most likely have to move Iggy for this to happen, maybe Kings?

Warriors slide Klay to 3


01 Jul 2019 05:38:33
And they still have no bench.

01 Jul 2019 06:14:13
They’ve been winning without one.

01 Jul 2019 06:37:19
That team will still beat the Rockets in a playoff game.

01 Jul 2019 08:29:01
Yeah, they pulled a rabbit out of the hat on that one. I didn’t think there was anyway they could get that done. That said, they got even thinner.

01 Jul 2019 14:20:39
Dangelo Russell = Kevin Durant + Iggy + Cousins?

Golden State took a step back. How far back is the real question.

30 Jun 2019 18:39:34
Moves I would like to see the Kings do in Free Agency.

Sign Dedmond $25 mil/ 2 years.
Waive WCS QO
Sign Ariza $25 mil/ 2 years
Trade lottery protected 1st rounder for Capella
Trade Bjelica for Gallinari (clippers salsry dump)

Fox/ Farrell/ Guy
Heild/ James
Ariza/ Bogdanovich
Bagley/ Gallo/ Giles
Capella/ Dedmond

And then just run every night until the other teams stars throw up.

May trade Gallo at the trade deadline.

30 Jun 2019 20:29:22
Don't know about the rest but Gallo NOT HAPPENING.

30 Jun 2019 15:34:17
Kings - Thunder

Kings gets:

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

30 Jun 2019 15:50:52
Okc doesn't get the pick.

30 Jun 2019 17:04:27
And Kings would only consider this without a pick included only if they strike out on getting Horford, Capella, Dedmond, Vucevic, WCS (gets an unmatchable offer) and perhaps even Cousins.

29 Jun 2019 22:47:37
Covington + Dieng to Sacramento for a 2nd rounder to create cap space for Minny to sign Dlo?

Gibson (resigned)

29 Jun 2019 22:55:03
They are not giving up Covington for a salary dump.

30 Jun 2019 00:15:16
So what are they giving up? Unprotected 1st?

30 Jun 2019 04:10:32
Gotta give up something and cininton not kat.

30 Jun 2019 05:08:19
Keith Smith has a report out there that Minnesota thinks it can get off the Wiggins contract w/ o giving up any additional assets due to his potential. They aren’t giving away RoCo to get off something else.

30 Jun 2019 05:24:15
If they get off Wiggins without giving up an asset, then Minny's GM will win Executive of the Year.

30 Jun 2019 07:37:19
Philly get Wiggins.

30 Jun 2019 15:18:44
Not Covington.

29 Jun 2019 18:04:32
Kings - Gallo
Clippers - Swanigan and 2nd

- reports are KD and Kawhi are communicating on the possibility of playing together


Shamet (KD)

29 Jun 2019 18:31:39
Either 2 2nds or a late 1st we don't need the player.

29 Jun 2019 20:02:32
Maybe not only did it bc Harrell is the only big under contract for Clips and Swanigan is cheap.

29 Jun 2019 20:43:03
Gallo does nothing for the Kings as cap space will probably be used resigning Barnes and a big like Horford.

I know topbrass (and the Clips) feel that Gallo has value and should receive draft picks in return, but to the Kings, he is just a $22 mil salary that is just in the way.

If the Kings were to trade a draft pick during this free agency, I would rather it be used for Capella than for Gallo.

29 Jun 2019 21:12:20
Fredman, I wouldn’t call Gallo a nobody for the Kings. He could help y’all push for the playoffs.

29 Jun 2019 21:21:44
Best offer I would give for Gallo is Gallo for Bjelica + 2020 2nd rounder (worse houston or Golden State) .

This still puts the Clips at 2 max slots with cap holds still on Beverly + Zubac + Kabengele.

29 Jun 2019 21:30:13
Gallo is an extremely poor fit for the pace that the Kings play as well as the taking minutes from Bagley at the 4 which is his natural position. I doubt Gallo will be "cool" coming off the bench for maybe 20 mins a night since he is in his last year of his deal. He doesn't "add" enough to justify paying him (instead of someone else) $22 mil AND giving up draft assets. Nope! Not when I might be able to get a Horford for that amount and keep the pick.

29 Jun 2019 22:24:00
Gallo had the best season of his career this year. He was either the 7th or 8th best forward in the NBA last season garnering several All NBA votes. The Clippers have several teams waiting to hear from them about Gallo. Clippers only trade Gallo if they need a 2nd MAX slot.

29 Jun 2019 22:51:15
How many of those "interested" teams have $16 mil in cap space AND are not spending it on big (or any) free agents?

30 Jun 2019 06:58:14
In absolutely the worst case Gallo can be stretched to open 2nd MAX slot. But UTA needs a stretch 4 and can get Gallo on the cheap.

30 Jun 2019 20:36:02
If 2nd MAX is needed it would be for Butler
PHI S&T Butler for Gallo and maybe a 2nd. Otherwise loose Butler for nothing IND and UTA both have space and need for Gallo.

29 Jun 2019 13:15:03
If Nets land Kyrie and KD, they'll need a little extra cap to fill out the roster while they wait for KD to return.

Okc gets Harris, Bogdanovic
Nets get Johnson, okc future 1st
Kings get Roberson, Patterson, Ferguson

Kings have cap and take on Roberson and Patterson for the sake of Ferguson who could fit nicely with their core.

Okc gets their shooters they desperately need.

Okc gets Williams and Zeller
Hornets get Adams

Hornets get pick and roll buddy for Kemba. Okc adds depth and stretch bigs.

Okc gets Augustin
Magic get Schröder

Okc cuts salary and Augustin is a better shooter than Dennis. Schröder is a nice stopgap for Fultz and have the cap to absorb the extra salary.

Wizards get Nader, Chicago 2nd via Okc
Okc gets Wagner

Okc resigns Noel for MLE.

Russ, Augustin, Felton
Harris, Diallo, Burton
George, Bogdanovic, Bazley
Grant, Williams, Green
Zeller, Noel, Wagner

This lineup has the shooting necessary while cutting salary and adding depth. For those who doubt Presti, remember that he traded a washed up Melo for Schröder while cutting MILLIONS in luxury taxes. He traded for Paul George without dealing a first round pick. When Durant bolted, he got Russ to stay long term. The guy can deal.

29 Jun 2019 15:17:09
Why would the Kings take on Patterson and Roberson for the sake of Ferguson when Bogdanovich is already a better player than Ferguson?

Just stop trying to use the Kings in any of your trade ideas because you simply can't use common sense in understanding the teams roster.

29 Jun 2019 18:09:31
Also, you understand that the if the Nets needed to dump more salary that they could deal directly with the Kings who would take Harris, dinwiddle or Prince off their hands in a heartbeat without having to includie OKC.

I know your an OKC fan, but please wake up from the dream.

28 Jun 2019 21:33:05
Rockets - Butler
76ers - Gordon and Tucker

Rockets - WCS and Bogdanovic
Kings - Capela




28 Jun 2019 22:11:27
Philly is reported to pass on that offer. They only want draft picks coming back for Butler.

29 Jun 2019 01:24:17
And tucker is starting for two teams.

28 Jun 2019 17:04:04
Step #1

Philly S&T Butler
Houston Capella +Gordon+2020 1st rounder
Sacramento 2020 first rounder (lottery protected) not conveyed turns into 2 2020 2nd rounders.

Philly gets Kings +Houston picks
Houston gets Butler
Sacramento gets Gordon+Capella.

Step #2

Sacramento trades Gordon
OKC trades Roberson+rights to Bazley+2020 2nd rounder.

Every team gets what they want and kings still have a max salary spot open.

28 Jun 2019 18:00:06
I left out that Philly also gets a $28 mil trade exception as well.

27 Jun 2019 23:58:15

IND: Turner,McDermott
Schroder, Bogdanovic, Ferguson, 2024 lottery protected OKC 1st rd pick, 2020 DET 2nd rd via SAC, 2021 MIA 2nd rd via SAC
- stop gap for Oladipo's return, still has room to sign Rubio and Randle in Free Agency.

SAC: Bogdanovic, 2020 DET 2nd rd, 2021 MIA 2nd rd
- gets their center that would be a great PnR with Fox and do the dirty job, still has $40m in cap space after trade. Try and lure Middleton out of MIL with a max offer. Fox/Hield/Middleton/Bagley/Adams

OKC: Adams, Schroder, Ferguson, 2024 lottery protected 1st rd pick
- reduce tax while gaining shooters

28 Jun 2019 00:07:20
I can’t see the Pacers or Kings doing this.

28 Jun 2019 00:13:20
Indy gets robbed.

28 Jun 2019 00:32:23
Kings are going to want Turner over Adams by a landslide.

Kings are not giving up any talent or picks for Adams.

27 Jun 2019 21:16:43
Kings get John Wall, Rockets 1st, Wizards 1st

Wizards get Chris Paul

Rockers get Jonathan Simmons

Kings get more firsts and absorb Wall. If he comes back and is close to what he used to be, he could be flipped in a couple years OR play alongside Fox

Wizards get an overpaid point guard they can actually play. Young squad could use a vet.

Rockets ditch Paul and position themselves better cap wise.

27 Jun 2019 21:49:14
Not that easy to unload Paul. Ohh? And Wall too.

28 Jun 2019 00:35:25
I don't think Washington or Sacramento does this.

27 Jun 2019 01:52:02

Clippers get Bogdanovic
- sign Kawhi Leonard & Tobias Harris
- resign Beverley


Kings get Gallinari, Robinson, Sixers 1st
- sign Vucevic


27 Jun 2019 05:36:13
El paso.

27 Jun 2019 18:37:41
Couple of problems with this trade
1. Clippers traded Phi 1st on draft day
2. Can't clear enough CAP space to sign Harris, Bogdanovic and Beverly either sign Harris then use Beverly's Bird rights to exceed CAP
3. Clips prefer to sign Kawhi, than pair either Horford or Butler.

26 Jun 2019 17:53:50
Compiling some Okc deals I'd like to see that I think are doable.

Okc gets Howard, Simmons
Wizards get Schröder
***Wiz get a stop gap point guard. This was a potential deal proposed on Bleacher report.


Okc gets Wagner, Jones, Bonga
Lakers get Nader
***Lakers waive Nader and get their coveted third max slot.

Okc gets Bogdanovic, Giles
Kings get Roberson, Patterson, two 2nds
***Kings get a defensive ace and pick up two second rounders for their trouble. This one may be a bit more wishful thinking but oh well.

Okc ends up with this lineup and cut about $11M in salary after waiving Simmons.

Russ, Bonga, Felton (minimum)
Bogdanovic, Ferguson, Diallo
George, Jones, Bazley
Grant, Giles
Adams, Howard, (Noel)

They could then flip Adams for Waiters and Olynyk or to the Celtics.

Potential Boston deal.

Okc get Smith, Henson
Boston gets Adams
Cavs get Hayward
***Boston gets more cap space and get Adams who they have interest in. Cavs take a swing at reviving Hayward and pairing Love with another star.

Okc then waives Smith for an additional $14M in cap space. Total from these deals they would have about $25M in relief.

Maybe that's enough to entice some free agent ring chasers? I'd love to see them pull off Mirotic and Ariza.

So finally...

Russ, Bonga, Felton (minimum)
Bogdanovic, Ferguson, Diallo
George, Ariza, Jones
Grant, Mirotic, Bazley
Henson, Howard, Giles

26 Jun 2019 18:06:02
The Cavs would need picks to take inn hayward.

26 Jun 2019 19:08:01
That Kings trade is extreme wishful thinking.

The Kings might do a straight salary dump of patterson+roberson+picks going to Sac and nothing going to OKC. But, I would hold out to get Bazley+Patterson+Roberson and no picks.

26 Jun 2019 22:37:50
As a thunder fan i will say now way that Kings trade would even come close to happening.

27 Jun 2019 05:41:15
No problem. Kings will get a cut of the luxury tax money that OKC will be paying. Its a win-win situation for the Kings.

26 Jun 2019 04:46:35

MIN: 2nd round pick

SAC: Gorgui Dieng (2yrs in contract left), Josh Okogie, 2021 1st round pick (no protection)

SAC only do this if they strike out on FA's. They get 2 assets (Okogie & pick) for taking 2 years of Dieng. Pure salary dump for MIN


G- Fox-Ferrell
G- Hield-Bogdan
F- Bojan-Okogie
F- Bagley-Bjelica
C- Dieng-Giles


BOS: Jeff Teague & 2 2nd round picks (SAC/own)

MIN: top 20 protected 1st round pick in 2022

BOS do have the cap space and if both of their point guards leave, Teague could be a nice temporary starter for next year.

MIN dumped around $37mil in those deals setting up a D'Angelo Russell signing for 4yr/$95mil

MIN fill the roster with min guys

G- Russell-Jones
G- Culver-min-Reyolds
F- Wiggins-Bates
F- Covington-min
C- Towns-Gibson

26 Jun 2019 06:43:10
Kings can't say yes fast enough.

26 Jun 2019 12:28:28
Kings don't even let Minnesota hang up and sets up a conference csll with NBA HQ.

The only problem is that it would have to be a 2020 1st because teams can not trade consectitive first rounders.

26 Jun 2019 15:46:40
I don't see teams trading completely unprotected picks unless they're teams like the Lakers. If minny misses the playoffs (very likely), their chances of jumping into the top 3 are much higher than before.

25 Jun 2019 03:35:54
SAC offseason:

Renounce WCS and sign Dewayne Dedmon (Sign and trade with ATL?)

Sign Harrison Barnes and Cory Joseph

Trade Yogi Ferrell to Atlanta for DeAndre Bembry (Same logic for ATL as the Bazemore / Turner trade - not enough minutes at the wing spots, get another look at a backup PG. SAC needs a wing defender for the minutes Bogdanovic doesn't get at SF)

Stash Marinkovic for now

SAC depth:

Fox / Joseph / Guy
Hield /Bogdanovic / James
Barnes / Bembry / FA
Bagley / Bjelica / FA
Dedmon / Giles / FA

Ideally Giles wins the starting 5 spot at some point

ATL depth:

Young / Turner / Ferrell
Huerter / Crabbe
Hunter / Reddish / Hill
Collins / Spellman / FA
WCS (?) / Len / Fernando / Plumlee

25 Jun 2019 13:28:23
I see Bogdanovich being traded for Capella or Turner the more likely result. Kings get a youngish center to grow with redt of the team. This also opens minutes off the bench for James and Guy. Still have to sign a starting wing.

25 Jun 2019 00:11:05

IND get Bogdan Bogdanovic & Jae Crowder
Sign Ricky Rubio (as per report they are interested although he is not a good fit with Dipo)

Pg Rubio/Holiday/Sumner
Sg Bogdanovic/(Oladipo)
Sf Crowder/McDermott
Pf Young/Leaf/Johnson
Ce Sabonis/Bitadze

SAC get Myles Turner
Offer good money for Bojan Bogdanovic

Pg Fox/Ferrell
Sg Hield/FA
Sf Bogdanovic/Williams
Pf Bagley/Bjelica
Ce Turner/Giles

MEM get 2nd rd pick from SAC & IND
They have no use for Crowder it's better to move him for some assets. 2 2nds could be enough

25 Jun 2019 03:57:42
Don't get me wrong, Turner is perfect for the Kings. I just don't get why people think he can be had so easily.

25 Jun 2019 04:04:29
I take turnerover twinkee Towns. Then let go of better Bogdan to trade other Bogdan. If I was a Pacers fan I Donkey kick you.

25 Jun 2019 04:09:30
I thought I brought up Bogdanovich for Turner sonewhere before.

25 Jun 2019 05:20:06
Pacers say no way! Not enough.

25 Jun 2019 17:30:38
The best the Kings would go would be Bogdanovich, Bjelica and a 2020 2nd rounder. Move the needle enough for a team with 3 young bigs that may not work together.

24 Jun 2019 05:31:36

SAC: Adams

IND:: Bogdanovic, Schroder

OKC: Turner

24 Jun 2019 06:05:57
Maybe Kings just cut the Thunder and get Turner themselves.

24 Jun 2019 08:07:53
comme on, turner is a borderline all star.

24 Jun 2019 13:49:57
Usa. Yup, the Kings would prefer Turner to Adams by a lot!
