OKC-CHI Trade:
OKC Trades: Ibaka, Waiters, Novak
CHI Trades: D. Rose and Future 1st Rounder

Reason Thunder do it: Adams and Kanter are a great fit together and make up for each others weaknesses. Plus getting Rose would be huge having him with Durant and Westbrook. If he is not healthy then that's fine, its pretty much their current team without waiters and adding in a healthy durant, plus they get a first rounder.

Reason Bulls do it: They are getting little to no buyers for Rose and getting a proven stretch 4, who also is one of the top 3 best shot blockers in the league, would be amazing. Not to mention a solid waiters off the bench. Then they also get rid of unhealthy Rose and his salary hit.

I'll give them the heat pick and that's it. I posted a similar trade before. The results were that rose is too injured to warrent much value. That and his contract of twenty mil for two full seasons. That's a ton of baggage. I'd just do the heat pick for rose. That's a fair value. And Sixers are one of the few teams that have the cap to sign a guy for that much and not have make the Bulls take on a big contract back.

Works for both teams. Bulls can pay butler now and still have 15 mil to sign a free agent.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 21:49:51
I tend to think rose is worth a bit more than a mid 1 round pick and a couple role players.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 21:58:33
U know sixers won't do it.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 22:54:26
Bulls don't do that without the Sixers highest pick or the Lakers pick. Sixers don't take on an $18m albatross of a contract for a PG with knee problems. We've traded for knee problems in the past and it hasn't worked out very well- Bynum.

Brown on record wanting a true PG, a passer first, scorer second Rose is the opposite.

Good player. Maybe a great player. The problem is that Derick Rose is not necessarily an asset at this point because of his contract.

Good idea though.

This trade would never happen. OKC would consider but the Pacers wouldn't. To the guys commenting above: George is listed as 6'9 on ESPN and can play shooting guard as well as small forward.

01 Apr 2015 17:42:51
Pacers laugh at this. Cauley stein and kcp are not a valid trade for a 25 year old who when healthy is a top 10 player. This is just nuts. Even if first pick in the draft pacers yell no

Agree0 Disagree2

01 Apr 2015 17:56:56
I doubt the nuggets would do that. I think Lawson is a little better than Hill even though the nuggets love him. And KCP is good but not worth the #5-9 pick in the draft

Knicks trade #1 and Jose Calderon to Philadelphia for Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims
Bring in Rondo

Believable0 Unbelievable5

01 Apr 2015 15:12:27
As a sixers fan I won't do it. Hinkie loves noel and everyone in Philly likes him. Sixers take a deep breath and say no. But its not a bad trade but sixers r better off keepin noel.

Agree3 Disagree1

01 Apr 2015 16:27:17
Neither side does it. Knicks would be better off with Towns or Okafor. And like stated above, Philly loves Noel

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 17:17:37
Noels butt isn't big enough

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 18:07:15
I like Noel and Simms. And I don't want Calderon. He's 33. Sixers can get that veteran PG very easily in free agency. No reason to trade for him- especially since he'll be long retired by the time the Sixers mature and there's no reason to disrupt the front court for a different front court player.

If anything, I see the Sixers staying right where they are with the top pick and maybe combining OKC pick and Miami pick to sneak up into the 10 range.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Apr 2015 19:01:40
Calderon for Sixers 44th 56 60th

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 21:50:43
It's not a Terrible deal. But Sixers don't need calderoons bad contract. In my opinion noel has more upside then okafor or towns at this point. Okafor has no lil defensive skills and a huge lack of athletism. Towns is athletic to a point but doenst have a consistent jump shot and lack a ton of polish on both ends of the floor. That's why they can single cover him and shut him down most of the time.

So why should I have to take a bad contract to get a slight less quality player??

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 22:13:08
Kn1ck3er whatever
Noel is still young and has gotten a lot bigger with muscle since he started. I have seen him right in front of me when I went to the sixers kings game when we won. he's fine the way he is for right now.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 23:01:23
shizzee- WHY?

You seem to think Calderon is an asset. He's not. You take a 33 year old PG that comes with a contract worth $7mil next year and $7mil the year after.

You can have Mo Williams or Jeremy Lin for way less than that and they're unrestricted free agents.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Apr 2015 01:09:34
Why does everyone think sixers want calderon. He blows. Just stop it.

Yeah I really like this Trading Jennings away to make Jackson the Starting PG and getting something back for Jennings is amazing. Also I like the free agent signings Mill-sap and Gerald Green but not Nelson and Antic Then it comes to the draft I like Kelly Oubre Jr but there is another person the pistons can draft and his name is justise Winslow Then the projected line-up

PG:R.Jackson, S. Dinwiddie, FA not Nelson
SG:K. Caldwell-Pope, J. Meeks
SF:G. Green, K. Oubre or J. Winslow
PF:P. Millsap, J. Hill
C:A.Drummond and another young player

01 Apr 2015 14:53:30
I like the FA signings except Nelson and Antic. Also I like the trade but Jennings for Hill and a future 1rd pick or 2rd pick. Then the draft the pistons can ether pick oubre or Winslow with the 7th or 8th pick

Agree0 Disagree2

01 Apr 2015 15:36:29
Detroit is not going to trade Jennings at this point not for Hill or Ryan Kelly for sure. WInslow is Scorless Williams 2.0 and Oubre is not a top 10 pick. Detroit will be able to get a more accomplished player at that point with a higher ceiling. G. Green is not enticing at all. Draymond Green is going to get their attention and maybe a max contract.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Apr 2015 16:22:25
TTTT, I thinks it's likely the Pistons do what it takes to sign Jackson and then trade Jennings. He's too expensive for a backup.

offseason sign Kevin Love 2yrs/36mil offer an extension upon raise of salary cap

i would love Jordan-Love combo but the budget is not enough so go with Robin Lopez, much cheaper but the energy and defense is still out there

draft assuming no.5 pick go for Stanley Johnson, defensive minded (Metta World Peace type player) at the wing

trade Jordan Hill and Wayne Ellington to Kings for Nik Stauskas and Derrick Williams

Rockets pick select Pg Tyus Jones

Pg : Clarkson, Jones

Min gets Kyle Korver and s&t Paul Milsap

Atl gets #3 pick, Pekovic and Lavine

Atl gets one of the top prospects and a solid center + Lavine who, as a wolves fan, I would have to think twice about giving away a guy with his potential

Wolves get a, IMO, top 5 PF who wouldn't come here through FA+ they get the best shooter in the league who would spread the floor and get open 3s when Wiggins is doubled

Atlanta draft Russel

Russel/ Lavine
Carrol/ Bazemore
Horford/ Scott
Pekovic/ Antic

Minnesota resigns Neal and KG and Trades Kmart to OKC for Khris Dunn or Tyus Jones

That's too much from Sixers. But its a good idea.

I'm concerned about Stauskus.

01 Apr 2015 15:17:24
Stauskas can be a great 6th man and can pop some 3s for us. U shouldn't have to feel concerned about him because the kings don't know how to use him because ben is the starter.

Drayond Green is going to get the max hopefully from Detroit to play the SF. This allows Detroit to use their first round pick on someone with a much higher ceiling maybe at the PF. Jennings and Meeks is not going to get you a first round pick it would be nice if it could but it cant, and you can't trade Jennings until you have Jackson signed. Where they are picking you can get a player with a higher ceiling then Winslow and Oubre.

If the balls play out with the records (i know it prob wont, but who says they move up instead of down) the lakers get the fourth pick.

the only trade that would be worthwhile to the Wolves I'd the first one, they will not trade Lavine basically for the Lakers pick

Agree5 Disagree3

31 Mar 2015 13:34:10
No thank you.

In this league, you don't trade bigs for smalls. The Sixers current run of high draft picks solved the biggest problem in the NBA- getting talented big men. Now they have the picks spread out to acquire talented smalls. They'll wind up with either Mudiay, Russell, Winslow or Johnson with their first pick and some combination of Grant, Dunn, Booker or Dekker with the later picks from Miami and OKC.

As for the Lakers pick, that's one of the most coveted picks/assets in the league. It literally could be the #1 pick overall in 2017 or the #4 pick next year. Phoenix didn't want to give it up and the Bucks should have kept it instead of acquiring MCW.

Frankly, I'd rather have the Grant kid from ND than MCW and he'll be drafted in the 10-15 range this year. So the Sixers got the most coveted pick in the league and can replace MCW in the 10-15 range.

And please stop trying to dump Bennett on the Sixers. One bad year is a fluke. Two bad years is a pattern. Something's not right about the kid.

Agree2 Disagree4

31 Mar 2015 14:18:20

Still wondering what the above statement is based on. Especially in the case with Towns. Okafor you can make a case that he doesn't play great defense. But Towns clearly does. Their stats are very similar in college. The main difference, Embiid he'd a knee injury that wiped out a few games in college. A back injury that shut his entire tournament and end of the year down. A foot injury that wiped out the entire first year. A reputation for being lazy and refusing to partake in conditioning. In fact, getting sent home at one point for getting into a major blow out with the sixers conditioning coach.

Towns on the other hand. 2 years younger, zero injury history and seems to be a VERY hard worker and quick learner. Oh and he shoots about 20% better from the free throw line which typically translates into better jumper. If I was the sixers GM, and was offered a trade of Towns for Embiid, I'd have to think long and hard about that. NO center has a successful history of coming back from a foot and back injury and having a long healthy career afterwards.

Case in point, Bill Walton, Greg Oden, Rik Smits, Mark Eaton, Brook Lopez, etc.

It'll be fun if Embiid breaks the mold, but based off his attitude and ability to consistantly get hurt. I wouldn't bet on it.

I can agree with some of the things u said but if embiid can stay healthy then he is better than oak and towns.

Sixers pass on both trades. You have to blow us away to get Embiid. And Bennett just doesn't do that. Neither does lavine. It would have to be minnosotas first this year and their first next year unprotected. And that's too much for them to give up when they could just draft towns or okafor. Assuming they get a top two pick.

Embiid if healthy would go number one in this draft pretty easily. Okafor is great offensively but in the NBA his size will hurt him. He has little athletism which is surprising given his footwork and catching ability. Towns has that athletism but has a serious lack of polish. I see teams single cover him every game because they know he's not a dominate force down in the paint. And defensively he is protected by a center in stein who anchors the team.

Embiid if healthy could be an animal. There were some most likely false reports out there about him being lazy and weighing 300 pounds. I'm positive that that man never weighed 300 pounds so that part of the report was absolutely false. Truth is now he's extremely toned and strong now for sure. Got a ways to go but expect a star from this guy if healthy.

And those guys u named that had similar injuries as embiid were not as athletic as he is and that can be his major upside.

Wolves say no, Dieng is younger, cheaper, and has the potential to be much better than Hickson

No way wolves make this trade. Maybe dieng, Bennett, and 2 2nd round picks for faried.

I don't think Think KG comes back to MIN as a player but as a FRONY OFFICE JOB in years to come

I almost agree except if the Wolves trade Pek, they will need a backup center, because Payne is certainly not a good backup, they also still need a backup PG because Lavine is better off the ball. Also, paying close attention to detail, Muhammad is not a SG and I think the Bucks would match that offer to Middleton

Don't resign Hummel or Hamilton, their ceilings are a below average roll player.
The trades are OK, but I think Pek would have more trade value at a later date.
I would prefer Kevin Seraphin at 4 years 24 million and Patrick Beverly at 4 years 30 million as free agents.

Garnett will be back on the court for at least a year if not 2 in order to mentor the young players, then he will get a front office job
