I'm not going to do the bulls whole depth chart since they are only swapping 2 players but basically they deal Snell and a future pick for insurance on Derrick Roses knees. and if Rose is healthy they get probably the best back up PG in the league
To much for knight.
Snell when the bulls have Butler and McDermott isn't too much for a huge insurance policy on Roses knees. The pick is still 2 drafts away
21 Aug 2014 01:53:24
Detroit trade Josh Smith , Will Bynum , Tony Mitchell
Detroit get Ersan Ilyasova , Otto Porter Jr.
-less 1 pg and get rid of smith
Washington trade Otto Porter Jr , Nene
Washington get Josh Smith , Will Bynum , 2nd from Mil
-depth at pg and athletic PF
Milwaukee trade Ersan Ilyasova , 2nd round pick
Milwaukee get Nene , Tony Mitchell
-get a veteran big man to teach henson and sanders + another young big man
Not a fan of porter or ersan at all but I'd make this trade for the salary reasons and need for a roster spot.
21 Aug 2014 01:42:41
WAS get Ersan Ilyasova , 2nd round pick
MIL get Nene
Not enough for Nene

Hornets get Josh Smith and Singler
Pistons get Zeller, Henderson, 2nd rd pick
Rather not throw singler in to a trade
20 Aug 2014 19:43:48
MIN sends: Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Martin, ChaseBudinger, JJ Barea
NYK sends: stat, Shumpert, Larkin
Martin/ hardaway jr
20 Aug 2014 17:57:32
Mil sends: Zaza, Ersan, Knight, Mayo
Mil gets: Bargnani, THJ, Phi 2nd Rd Dp
NYK sends: Bargnani, Stats, Shumpert, THJ, Larkin 1st Rd 2015
NYK gets: Zaza, Ersan, Knight, Richardson
Phi sends: Richardson, 2015 2nd Rd Dp
Phi gets: Shumpert, Stats, Larkin, Mayo NYK 2015 First
Milwaukee botched the Knight extension talk and will probably not get him back after this season so trading him will allow the Bucks to draft a new PG in 2015. Bucks trade vets for low value to speed up rebuilding process
6th Man THJ
NYK remove their bad contracts and give up their youth so Melo can contend this year. NYK gives Knight a better extension and have a G that can work the triangle
6th JR Smith
Phi takes on Stats with young players as well for the future. Phi starts Mayo at the 2 to boost his value and trades him at the deadline for future assets
(Bennett assuming Young is traded in Love deal)
succeed and proceed
Expiring contracts youth and draft picks for bad contracts? Yeah, Knicks laugh
Knicks would never do that, beyond horrible for them.
summer of 2015 is going to be huge for the knicks. they won't let zaza and brandon knight F that up.
LOVE the trade for Sixers and Bucks but HATE the trade for Knicks no way they do this trade giving up to much
20 Aug 2014 15:31:24
MIN get: Wiggins & Thad Young
CLE get: Love
PHI get: Bennett & Barea
MIN get: Teague, Korver, & Barnes
GSW get: Pekovic & Milsap
ATL get: Lee, Martin, Brewer, Rubio, & GSW 2015 1st DP
2014-15 T'Wolves Roster
Stephen Curry/Shuan Livingston/Aaron Craft
Klay Thompson/Brandon Rush
Andre Iguodala/Draymond Green
Paul Milsap/Mareese Speights
Andrew Bogut/Nikola Pekovic/Festus Ezeli
Only team that potentially declines is Atlanta because they acquire two bad contracts in Lee and Martin. Pretty solid trade though.
U think bogut would start over pekovic?
@kn1ck3erb0ck3r Bogut would most likely start because he's a much better defender and the Warriors starting five has enough offense. Pek would make for a great 6th man.
Yea that's true @rerur I think that GSW team would be tops in the west.
ATL would look like.
20 Aug 2014 18:28:31
Min gives up pek, Rubio, brewer, Martin for only Teague Barnes and Korver? Hell no from mn
@tmoney. its called rebuilding that's why. they clear a lot of cap and get back young players. rubio brewer pek and martin obviously weren't working out. time to change things.
^yeah Bogut would definitely start over Pekovic. He's got more experience, is a better passer, and most importantly, is a top tier defender (unlike Pekovic who can't defend.) Before the past two years, GS sucked because they never had a good rim protector, which is why they traded their leading scorer (Monta Ellis) for a guy who was injured for the rest of that season, and into the next one.
20 Aug 2014 14:48:52
2 Thunder Moves to make them a true title contender
1. Trade Lamb, Thabeet, 2nd rd pick for Tony Allen, defensive specialist
2. Trade Perkins, Adams, Jones and a lottery protected 1st rd pick for Kelly Olynyk and Jeff Green
Sign Emeka Okafor
None of those trades seem to work other then the Thudner get rid of garbage and get players in return.
Adams and Lamb are far from garbage
20 Aug 2014 12:44:18
MIN get Kings 1st round pick , Russ Smith
R. Rubio / J. Barea / R. Smith
K. Martin / Z. Lavine / G. Robinson III

20 Aug 2014 12:20:57

Young - Kelly - Mbah Moute
Pekovic - Dieng - Turiaf
Lakers get Corey Brewer
Lin - Nash - Clarkson
Bryant - Young - Henry
Brewer - Johnson
Boozer - Randle
Hill - Davis - Sacre
20 Aug 2014 10:31:46
This is a long shot but read it all.
Magic get: Davis, Evans
Pelicans get: A.Gordon, B.Gordon, Orl 1st 2015, Orl 1st 2017
Magic get a star who fits their defensive style but have to take on a bad contract.
Pelicans target Okafor or towns with theirs or Orl pick, Okafor would be a great fit next to Anderson as he can work the post and Anderson can hit those 3s. Eric Gordon will space the floor which leaves driving lanes for aaron Gordon and they get rid of Evans contract for Ben Gordon's expiring which frees cap to make a better signing. They also get a future 2017 pick to fill a need later on.
Not a snow balls chance in hell. Anthony Davis is untouchable.
20 Aug 2014 21:33:17
add vucevic harkless '20 fist so the trade would be
magic; davis gordon
Pels; vucevic harkless a.gordon '15 first '17 first '20 first
20 Aug 2014 04:13:36
Grizzlies get Jeremy Lamb, Hasheem Thabeet, and 2016 1st
Thunder get Tony Allen
20 Aug 2014 04:04:01
New twist on Love to Cleveland
Cleveland gets; K. Love and Ronnie Turiaf
Minnesota gets; A. Wiggins, T. Young, JaVale McGee,2 second round picks from Denver and protected 1st rounder from Cleveland.
Philadelphia gets; A. Bennett, J.J. Barea, and L.R. Mbah a Mounte
Denver gets; C. Budinger, J. Lucas III, and E. Murphy
Works on ESPN trade machine if you replace Wiggins with T. Thompson. Machine will not let you trade Wiggins and salaries are about the same.
Why teams do it:
Cleveland gets Love and rim protector
Minnesota could be very strong defensively
Denver gets out of the luxury tax after releasing ungaranteed contracts
Philly gets potential in Bennett, plus 2 players they could get small return for at the trade deadline.
i love Disney
20 Aug 2014 05:44:59
I like it but Gorgui would have to play PF or the wolves would have to trade pek
Minnesota played Gorgui at PF in summer league.
i love Disney
Actually has something there for sure. But there's hardly ever a four team trade in the nba.
Philly doesn't do it without getting a 1DP.
Give the nuggets some of the picks, instead of all of then to the TWolves
20 Aug 2014 03:24:57
Hornets get Danny Green
Good 3&D player
Spurs get Hairiston, Zeller
2 young players who should develop playing with these good veterans
Hornets get Scola
Veteran big man, expiring contract
Pacers get Henderson and 2nd rd pick
Young player, fills hole on wing
Could be a top 4 team in East
20 Aug 2014 01:36:22
BOS: Kelly Olynyk C, James Young SG, Brandon Bass PF & LAC 1st round pick
MIN: Nikola Pekovic C, Alexy Shved SG & 2nd round pick
Celts say no
20 Aug 2014 00:38:33
GS trades David Lee, Andre Iguodala, sNt Jordan Crawford.
OKC trades Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb.
OKC finally gets good SG, as well as a good veteran PF. Plus they dump Perkins.
GS gets more of a floor spacer, gets Barnes more playing time, and they don't want Crawford back this year, so they would be fine with him in a sNt. If he doesn't retire, resign Jermaine ONeal (sources close to him say if he doesn't retire, the only team he is looking at is the warriors).
Resign Klay Thompson for 4 yr 50 mil (try and sign him earlier than the offseason so he might not demand the max).
Resign Draymond Green 3yr 20m (after this season, Perkins will be off the books so they won't have to pay the luxury tax).
Stephen Curry/Shuan Livingston
Klay Thompson/Brandon Rush/Jeremy Lamb
Harrison Barnes/Draymond Green
Serge Ibaka/Mareese Speights
Andrew Bogut/Kendrick Perkins/Jermaine ONeal
If a big man gets injured, bring up Ezeli, and if a guard gets injured, rbring up Craft or Nedovic.
This team is solid all around, and will contend this year and for a long time.
U can keep Igoudalas contract. didn't he average like 8ppg last year?. that's too much for a defensive specialist. I'd rather swap Lamb and a pick for Tony Allen
Would absolutely love this trade for the Warriors, and on paper both teams would win, but I just don't see the Thunder trading Ibaka.
Nothing in that package worth Ibaka.
Keep dreaming if you think Thompson will resign for that. It will probably cost at least 14 mil a year to keep him.
Who is the good SG you are talking about Lmab? He is a bust. Nothing in that trade gets U Ibaka.
^Iggy was hurt most of the year, but he still played. He played like the first month healthy and averaged 15 points, but after the hamstring injury his average went down. But he had surgery this offseason, and should be back 100%. But even if he's not, he is a 1st team defender, a very good ballhandler, passer, and a decent shooter. Well worth the cash.
^Totellthetruth I'm talking about Iguodala
20 Aug 2014 00:12:18
Amir Johnson and Landry Fields for David West
19 Aug 2014 23:53:15
MAGIC GET; Drummond
PISTONS GET; Vucevic T.harris
This trade would be impossible to work since drummond is untouchable
Magic have no two players worth Drummond.
Dre goes nowhere.
Who says I am going to post the most rediculous trade ever and then actually does it. kbpg24 congrats on the most rediculous post ever.
19 Aug 2014 23:20:50
Boston and Sacramento are adamantly denying that a Rajon Rondo deal is being discussed
19 Aug 2014 23:13:54
Pacers get McGee Calderon Chandler
Knicks get Hibbert Foye JSmoothe W.Bynum
Nuggets get Bargnani-exp Larkins Shumpert injury exception Pacers future 1st
Pistons get G.Hill J.Smith-exp Outlaw-exp
Piston send Jennings to Rockets for lin trade exception clear space to offer Monroe more money than 4yr 60 mil
McGee is 8 figure backup to Hickson with 2 yrs left
Chandler is making 7 mil backup Gallo with 2 years left
Denver has no other true PG beside Robinson and Lawson. Foye expandable to develop Harris.
Pacers need to keep balance around West this yr George next
Knicks take on more payroll, to get as deep as team as anybody.
Interesting trade but four team trades hardly ever get done.
19 Aug 2014 21:38:16
Celtics get Prince and 2 2nd rd picks
Expiring contract, allows young players to play and develop
Grizzlies get Jeff Green
Upgrade at SF, becomes stronger in very strong Western Conference
19 Aug 2014 20:40:44
C's get a future Center
Detroit gets a SF and a good backup PF/C on a small contract
succeed and proceed
19 Aug 2014 18:29:29
SAC get: Josh Smith & Rajon Rondo
BOS get: Derrick Williams (exp), Jerebko (exp), Ben McLemore, DET 2015 1st DP, SAC 2016 1st DP, SAC 2018 1st DP
DET get: Jeff Green, Jason Thompson, Jason Terry (exp) & Reggie Evans (exp)
Really Really haven;t posters learned that the Detroit to the Kings is a dead deal. SVG doesn't want Thompson or Terry or Evans he has made that clear four times. If he wants Green just deal directly with the Kings and send them Smith and a Pick. Enough already.
Detroit won't give a first to trade Smith for expirings.
Fair trade but I doubt SVG would give up a first in a loaded 2015 class, especially after not having one this year.
Have to be kings 17 & 19?
Bulls got kings 15 in Deng trade
Ahhh so the kings get two stars for a couple picks a few years down the road and garbage? Makes sense lol
Kings give up a former 2nd pick in draft, and former 8th pick in draft, both still young prospects with potential AND THREE first round picks?! To rent rondo?!
19 Aug 2014 16:57:05
IND Batum Leonard
POR get Hibbert
Pacers need to get a quality SF type that could start in place of George. And as well as get a Center since Hibbert is on the outs.
Porland get a Starting C goes good next to Aldridge
Batum > hibbert
Portland already has a really good center that fits great next to Aldridge.
Also, if Portland trades Batum, who is playing SF?
19 Aug 2014 13:19:53
IND get: Dalembart (exp), Bargnani (exp), Bledsoe (s&t), Jr Smith & TJ Warren
Sign: Marc Gasol next offseason
Tank and get a lottery pick
sg. jr smith
PHX get: Paul George, Shumpert & Prigioni
NYK get: Hibbert & George Hill
Not going to happen Warren has huge potential and bledsoe can be a star an injured paul goerge and garbage is not worth it for the suns
^but if George comes back healthy, he is worth way more than that.
19 Aug 2014 11:47:32
Monroe 4y 55m
Monroe davis sacre
If Monroe doesn't sign an extension will be traded in before the trade deadline to a distination he would say yes too and the Lakers do not have anybody to trade.
It depends on our record by trade deadline. He wants to see how SVG can run the team. that's what I've seen.
19 Aug 2014 11:26:33
Hibbert, copeland and protected 1st pick for
Martin and Pekovic.
19 Aug 2014 10:25:05
Thunder get Jeff Green
Celtics get Kendrick Perkins, 2015 1st, and draft rights to Alex Abrines
Pf. Ibaka/ Jones/ Jarrett
Sf. Durant/ Green/ Roberson
C. Adams/ Collison/ Mcgary
Sg. Westbrook/ Lamb/ Morrow
Pg. Jackson/ Telfair/ Christion
That'd be pretty funny considering Boston initially drafted Green and traded him for Ray Allen back in '08 or w/e. Then a few years ago they essentially did this exact trade with Green for Perkins. Jeff Green would just keep getting shuffled between Okc and Boston
19 Aug 2014 10:21:27
GS get Paul Milsap , Nic Batum
S. Curry / S. Livingston / N. Nedovic
K. Thompson / B. Rush
N. Batum / H. Barnes
P. Milsap / D. Green / M. Speights
A. Bogut / F. Ezeli / O. Kuzmic
POR get Andre Iguodala , Demarre Carroll , Jordan Crawford (st)
D. Lillard / S. Blake / C. McCollum
W. Matthews / J. Crawford / W. Barton
A. Iguodala / D. Caroll / D. Wright
L. Aldridge / T. Robinson
R. Lopez / C. Kaman / J. Freeland
ATL get David Lee , Allen Crabbe , 1st from Portland
J. Teague / S. Mack / D. Shroeder
K. Korver / K. Bazemore / J. Jenkins
T. Sefolosha / A. Crabbe
D. Lee / M. Scott / A. Payne
A. Horford / P. Antic / M. Muscala
Portland would need to give up more. GS would way rather have Iggy than Batum for his ball handling and defense, and while Milsap is an upgrade, he's not good enough to make this trade fair
Hah, I was going to say the exact opposite warriorsalltheway. Batum is similar to iggy but way younger, I'd take Batum any day over iggy.
Would love this trade for the Warriors.
Batum isn't an elite defender like Iggy, not as good a ballhandler, and not as good a passer, with not nearly as much experience, which is what they want
19 Aug 2014 09:54:31
uta get b mclemore , b bass
sac get r rondo , j smith
bos get e kanter , b jennings , 1st from Sacramento
det j green , d williams , d collison
I'd like to buy a capital letter, Pat.
Its a decent trade overall, but not sure of the rules allowing teams to trade just signed FA. I believe you can not trade them until after the All star break.
19 Aug 2014 04:53:37
Final Cavs moves
Add a rim protector
Cavs get Okafor s&t
Suns get Ilyasova
Mil get Dellavedova plus future Cavs pick
Sign Ray Allen
19 Aug 2014 03:35:44
NYK- CLE- BOS- DET
New York - Josh Smith
Defensive big man
Cleveland- Iman Shumpert
Boston- Brandon Jennings, Dion Waiters, Bargnani
Detroit- Rondo, Jeff Green
Actually small forward and star point guard
Rondo is a rental he will be a FA at the end of the year and will not resign with Detroit. So Detroit would not only lose Rondo, but Monroe, Smith and Jennings if they made this trade going into 2015 and Detroit is not a landing spot of FA. Detroit would rather have Early, Oly instead.
19 Aug 2014 03:35:41
I realize it won't happen because it is not OKC's style. but I'd love to see them go after either Brook Lopez or Hibbert. Both are making between $14-15 million and under contract for two more seasons. Both the Nets and the Pacers could do with some retooling but are cap-strapped. The Thunder could offer a package of Perk ($9 million expiring), Collison ($2 million expring), Lamb, and a pick.
Neither player are particularly athletic, but could thrive next to a player like Ibaka. They also could do well with a player like Adams being able to provide them with ample rest throughout the season and postseason. Additionally, they could provide a strong low-post threat that the team lacks. Conversely, both the Pacers and the Nets could use a shooter like Lamb, an additional pick, and over $10 million in cap relief at this season's end.
Jackson, Morrow, Roberson
Lopez or Hibbert, Adams, Thabeet
Think lopez could be better they need low post scoring, Ibaka can do the job on defense
