76ers draft Jabari Parker at 2 and Zach Lavine at 10.
Trade Thad Young to a team with a pick between 15 and 20 and use that pick to draft PJ Hairston.
Throw Big money at both Greg Monroe and Lance Stephenson, whose teams don't have money or incentive to match large offers.
2014 Starters and 6th and 7th men
MCW, Lance, Parker, Monroe, Noel, 6th/7th man Hairston/Lavine
2015 offseason sign Amare Stoudemire to a vet minimum as his knees will have probably fallen off but I think he would be a good offensive mentor to Nerlens Noel. He has proved that when healthy he was a versatile and prolific scorer, as well as being a total gym rat, which should positively effect the entire team.
I am not a 76ers fan but I think this is possible

Carmelo to phoinex for 2 first rounders
08 Mar 2014 11:36:51
Happy Mavs summer!
Anthony will join Bulls - it fits to good to see it not happen. NY will agree to trade Chandler to reduce CAP.
Boston will not build a contender next season. And some young asset by taking Rondo AND Wallace will be approved by Ainge. Mavs are able to take both. Houston, NY, Miama are not able to.
Mavs will find a taker for Calderon to receive a pick in return. So we will see some nice Mavs moves:
1. Draft PF McAdoo with a 2014 2nd
2. Send 1st 2014 to Thunder
3. Send Calderon for a 2nd 2015 pick
4. Send a 2nd pick 2015 to receive Chandler
5. Send Larkin, 1st pick 2014 and 2nd to receive Rondo AND Wallace
6. Sign all the veterans (Harris, Carter, Marion, Nowitzi) by bird-right and good 1y deals, for that contender team Cuban will pay 85 Million!
7. With all Veterans, Chandler, Dalembert, Wright will come of the books in 2015 but Mavs own bird-rights.
2015 contender team:
Chandler, Dalembert, Wright
Nowitzki, Wallace, McAdoo
Marion, Crowder, Ellington
Ellis, Carter, Ledo
Rondo, Harris, Mekel
8. In the summer 2015 Mavs will have another 25 million CAP to sign Love and a young SF.
2016 and future contender team:
Chandler, Dalembert, Wright
Love, Nowitzki, McAdoo
Marion, Wallace (or a talent SF), Crowder
Ellis, Carter, Ledo
Rondo, Harris, Mekel
H chandler and his expiring contract for a second? Love with nowitski as his back up? Larkin for rondo basically? Come on. Maybe lebron can join for veterans minimum because he loves shark tank as well lol
Just repeatedly proposing this.
Yet another delusional Mavs fan
All this clouless comments and People.
Hi guys, Larkin + 1st 2015 + taking the badest contract ever - Wallace. First think than talk or write.
Nowitzki goes to the 40's!
Love is designated to follow after Nowitzki. Dirk can be backup one or two seasons, in 2016 and 2017.
So take a back up pg and a mid round pick for rondo and Wallace sorry no

Orlando magic summer plans
Draft: Wiggins and Ennis
Reasons why in my personal opinion I think bucks should draft embiid to develope alongside giannis both are raw so it would be good to develope them together.
I think philly should draft Parker they need some outside scoring fret and Parker has shown at duke he can make your team better so he will help rebound and give other guys touches like Noel and mcw who slash to the basket.
Orlando should go for wiggins they need more atheltism and defense and he'd be great alongside oladipo. Ennis is a pure pg who can run a team and will create for everyone.
I think they should pair affalo and Nicholson and trade for a player (probs bad contract) a 1st rounder and a 2nd rounder
Then with these picks draft Cauley-stein as a backup center and defensive presence in the paint. And then either walker athletic defensive pf or Hairston possible sixth man or 3-d player with the 2nd pick either one could help
So the starters and backups would be:
Pg Ennis, Nelson
Sg oladipo, lamb
Sf wiggins, harkless
Pf Harris, o'quinn
C Vucevic, Cauley-stein

LAKERS ROSTER 2014-2015
LAKERS DRAFT: Julius Randle
LAKERS RESIGN: Pau Gasol
Point Guard: Jordan Farmar Kendall Marshall Steve Nash
Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant Jodie Meeks Marshon Brooks
Small Forward: Nick Young Xavier Henry Kent Bazmore
Power Forward: Julius Randle Wesley Johnson Ryan Kelly
Center: Pau Gasol Jordan Hill Robert Sacre
LAKERS will not do anyrhing this offseason besides get their lottery pick which is either Julius Randle or Dante Exum or Jabari Parker
08 Mar 2014 02:56:25
Trade Perkins and #22 pick to 76ers for Thad Young
29-Glenn Robinson III
Trade Westbrook for Conley
Re-sign Caron Butler 2yr 3m
Sign DeShaun Stevenson or Ronnie Brewer for minimum
Sign 3rd string PG who can make plays
Lamb/Stevenson or Brewer/Robinson III
In my opinion, westbrook's fast running game doesn't fits memphis style though his defense will. conley will be a very good pg for durant
08 Mar 2014 02:15:29
Draft Julius Randle
Sign Kyle Lowry 4yr 38m
Re-sign Pau Gasol 2yr 20m
08 Mar 2014 00:54:16
Knicks - Celtics - Rockets - Pelicans --- off season trade to try snd keep Carmelo happy since he won't want to go through another knicks season like this one.
Knicks trade T Chandler, A Bargnani, A Stoudemire, T Hardaway Jr, 2018 & 2019 2nd round draft picks
Knicks receive T Evans, E Gordon, G Wallace, O Asik
Celtics trade J Green, G Wallace
Celtics receive A Stoudemire, Knicks 2018 2nd round pick
Rockets trade O Asik
Rockets receive J Green, Knicks 2019 2nd round pick
Pelicans trade T Evans, E Gordon
Pelicans receive A Bargnani (exp), T Chandler (exp), T Hardaway Jr
Why would the other teams beside the Knicks do this trade?
Nah boston get shorted as do knicks. Rocket fan your not getting green for asik with out coughing more up. Asik for wallace is the best you get. Asik has been useless this yr his value is very low. Next yr he makes. 15 mil
NOLA get Bargnani Hardaway
Celtics get EGordon Shumpert NY 2018 & 2020 1St
Knicks get Rondo Wallace
Amazing how one guy says knicks get too much and the next says knicks get too little.
People keep forgetting stodamire bargnani and chandler all have massive expiring contracts. They won't take on more contracts. This players are super valuable. Why would the Knicks make the trade for Wallace anymore? And asik isn't worth nearly a one year 15 mil contract.
07 Mar 2014 21:59:34
Knicks-Suns if Melo leaves
Knicks get Plumlee and 2014 2nd rd pick
Suns get Chandler
Knicks get Len and #30 pick
Suns get Chandler
Chandler not worth young up and comers and a first round pick.
I truly am sorry for u knicks fans thinking chandler has any trade value
He has trade value but not a 1st rounder type
07 Mar 2014 21:45:47
Trade #11, MKG, Biyombo or Haywood to 76ers for #10 and #39
Sign Trevor Ariza 4yr 22m
Sign Jermaine O'Neal 1yr 1m
Sign Aaron Brooks 2yr 3m
Jefferson/O'Neal/Biyombo or Haywood
Good young team with good future
Picks are real nice and next year draft Jordan Adams at the 2 guard and a backup Center
07 Mar 2014 21:14:42
Pistons need a big change and there owner seems willing to pay to make it work. Smith still has value on the right team.
Let Stucky, cv walk and Billups retire
Sign lance Stephenson 3-4 years 11 mil per
Sign Jordan Hamilton 3years 3mil per
Draft a sg who can shoot or a big with pick #40
3team trade Detroit Washington Houston
Detroit gets Lin (expiring), Ariza s&t 3 year 6-7mil per
Washington gets Asik, Datome
Houston gets Smith, Bynum, Saraphin
-Washington would look great with a defensive center like Asik I feel this would be a huge win for them.
-Houston has a lineup to compliment Smith and the players to keep his shooting in check. Imagine if smith saved all his energy for defense and slashing to the rim! This would make his contract look like a great deal. Howard and smith are BFF. With with parsons and harden shooting they could use another interior defender.
Jennings/Lin (expiring) /Siva
-Detroit has the $ and the youth! With Drummond Monroe and Stephenson playing as allstars in the future there futer would be very bright! Ariza would complement this young core with shooting and perimiter D. Jennings might still make it as a Piston but he has a lot to learn but this new team and Lin backing him up would take off a lot of pressure.
Whatever holes are left can be filled in '15 where Detroit has around 10mil in cap when jerebko and Lin expire.
Houston passes --- J. Smith is overrated
I'd rather have smith and Bynum the Asik and Lin
Smith and Bynum go to Houston
Asik goes to Washington.
07 Mar 2014 21:09:53
Nuggets sign Tayshaun Prince
Nuggets trade Gallinari, McGee and Faried to Pelicans for Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson and Greg Steimsma
Draft Gary Harris at #8
Draft Corey Jefferson at #42
Draft Justin Cobbs at #55
Robinson probably opts in
- maybe send Cobbs and Jefferson 1st to D-League make them as reserves in case of Injuries.
Prince will not be a free agent.
Robinson has already said he won't opt out and he wants to play for denver next season
07 Mar 2014 20:48:55
spurs and pelicans
next season trade splitter and joseph for ryan anderson and jason smith
07 Mar 2014 20:46:42
spurs and suns
diaw for marcus moris or markieff morris sign and trade
This is horrible for the suns
07 Mar 2014 20:14:43
Phil jackson coming to NY, Melo Amare Chandler ride it out for their finals year together with a trade that lands them Rondo. By Knicks getting Jackson keep melo in check about staying at least one more yr and rondo will force this trade. Than only than this trade make sense for all parties.
NOLA get Hardaway Shumpert Bargnani
C's get E. Gordon Rivers Clark-exp 2018 & 2020 NY 1st
Knicks get Rondo Wallace Bogans
Josh McRoberts signs 3yr 10mil
Kaman 2yr 4mil
others for vet minimum
amare avg 24 MPG and Melo 34 MPG
Would rather pels get chandler
If nola wants chandler you get shumpert and bogans only. But if you prefering moving evans. Keep rivers and only get shumpert and bargnani and hardaway goes to c's. You pick.

Lakers rumors that are actual:
1. The Lakers are willing to overpay Eric Bledsoe
2. The Lakers are interested in Loul Deng in the offseason
3. Pau Gasol is leaving LA
4. Nick Young isn't certain on opting out of his second year with the Lakers
5. The Lakers do not plan to use the stretch provision of Steve Nash
6. Dr. Jerry Buss is responsible for the hiring of Mike D'Antoni, Jim wanted Phil
7. Magic Johnson is willing to help recruit
8. Kobe is done for the season
9. The Lakers think they have a chance at Lebron (lmfao and I am a Laker fan)
10. The Lakers do not want Melo
11. Players do not want to come to LA to play for Mike D'Antoni
The main thing that is certain among everyone?
*D'Antoni can't be coming back next season. I don't think Jim Buss is that ignorant to allow that clown of a coach to return.
Lakers are the projected 5th pick in mostly every mock draft I've seen. So here is mine (and yes it is very much biased with the outcome of LAL, but I tried to reason for every team)
1. Milwaukee selects: DANTE EXUM (why would they add another big man in Joel Embiid? They would have the same problem Detroit has now with their logjam. They need someone in the backcourt with Brandon Knight and someone to compliment the Greek Freak)
2. Philly selects: ANDREW WIGGINS (self explanatory-Nerleans Noel, MCW, and Andrew Wiggns is a great foundation)
3. Orlando selects: JOEL EMBIID (Oh hey, Dwight who? Embiid should make them forget about D12. They don't need Jabari if the J. Cole look-alike Tobias Harris developes nicely. Him along with Oladipo and Embiid + Vucivic will bring life back to Orlando and they will slowly become a force)
4. Boston selects: MARCUS SMART (to go along with Rondo, Kelly Olynk, Jared Sullinger, and Jeff Green. The Celtics have a good front court with Sullinger and Olynk, in plus Rondo needs a back court mate with the same passion as him)
5. Los Angles (Lakers) selects: JABARI PARKER (oh would you look at that, he fell to the Lakers)
Now let's play out the offseason:
-Lakers overpay for Eric Bledsoe
-Lakers pay for Greg Monroe (trade bait for the Wolves, cause I doubt they let Kevin Love leave them for nothing, and even if they don't sign Love, Bledsoe and Monroe alone are enough)
-Nick Young plays out his second year
-Lakers fire D'Antoni and bring in Stan Van Gundy
-Lakers re sign: Kent Bazemore, Jordan Hill, Pau Gasol
-Lakers sign: Marcin Gortat (played under SVG)
-Lakers pick up Kendall Marshalls team option for the 2014-2015 season
Lakers 2014-2015 Roster:
PG: Eric Bledsoe/Steve Nash?/Kendall Marshall
SG: Kobe Bryant/Kent Bazemore
SF: Jabari Parker?/Nick Young
PF: Pau Gasol/Jordan Hill
C: Greg Monroe/Marcin Gortat/Robert Sacre
Coach: Stan Van Gundy
Lakers have so many options this offseason, if they focus too much on Kevin Love they will miss out. He hasn't even proved that he can lead his team to even the playoffs! So I would make a pitch at him during the 2015 trade deadline but if he isn't willing to sign or if acquired, extend, for a pay cut, then he isn't worth all what he seems. Great player, but the Lakers need to take advantage of the other great players out there too. I know this isn't likely but it isn't impossible either. If cap is a non concern for the Nets, then the Lakers have no problem paying however million in taxes. I mean, if they can put together a winning roster, its no problem (sell outs, sponsers, etc). Thanks in advance for your feedback
Only way u get Parker is luck in the lottery
A few thoughts:
- MIL and PHI can trade down if they need so the draft may not be as you think.
- Overpaying for Bledsoe - PHX will match and they have the rights. Overpaying means salary of $14M
- if they pay $12- 14M for Monroe then they will not have the cap to sign both at these rates if they don't stretch Nash (based on the existing caps + cap holds)
But why would the wolves want monroe or bledsoe. munroe and pekovic won't fit same thing with rubio and bledsoe
All these signings will not be possible due to cap issues. Keep in mind, it will be around $60M to be able to sign these players.
Draft Exum at 5 then Sign Deng or Ariza to play the 3
Yes celtics pass on Jabari Parker for Marcus smart
07 Mar 2014 16:54:54
D. Rose for Melo
you ask why? Knicks are about to loose their best players to fa and trading rose allows Bulls to keep core outside Rose and replace with quality but healthier PG. Knicks Role the dice on Rose as always take risk (Antonio McDyess) and on 2 bad knees but still he still better than any Knicks guard.
Bulls annesty Boozer.
Bulls go after Bledsoe 4yr 64 mil
Melo/A. Gordon-16th/M. Ejim-49th
Shumpert/D. Jones-fa/S. Jackson-fa
07 Mar 2014 14:01:12
D. Rose & Taj Gibson for Dragic & Okafor 1st DP
Rose can benefit from Suns medical staff.
Then bulls can amnesty Boozer & have a ton of cap space.
Bulls would have crazy cap space; Okafor expiring, amnesty boozer, got rid of Gibsons large contract, and rose is now off the books. Still a solid team, with much cap space to get even better.
Okafor is a free agent
Deal makes no sense for suns a young team trying to get younger, save money and stay healthy
07 Mar 2014 09:00:40
Magic - Pistons --- off season deal
Magic trade A Affalo, J Maxwell
Pistons trade J Smith, 2015 1st round pick
07 Mar 2014 06:50:09
I know Melo wouldn't go back to Denver but if he did this is what I think would happen
Den get Melo and Martin
Nyk get Faried, Gallanari, Chandler, and 15 1st
Might not need Martin and 1st
Draft Aaron Gordon 1st round Marble 2nd Round
Sign Avery Bradley
Trade Rudloph and it is great team
07 Mar 2014 06:34:17
Trade Prince to Det for 2nd and Jerepko
Trade Allen and Davis to Den for Chandler and Randolph
Let z-bo and Udrih walk
Draft Dario Saric 1st round
CJ Fair and Jahii Carson 2nd
07 Mar 2014 02:17:31
Knicks-Bobcats trade if Melo leaves
Knicks get Taylor, Biyombo, #25 pick from Portland
Bobcats get Shumpert and Chandler
Shumpert even in his slump is still nealry worth pick 25 alone
Add 2 future 2nd rd picks to Knicks
07 Mar 2014 00:48:19
Mike dunleyvey for anyone's 2nd Rd pick
Nazr Mohammed (veteran minimum)
Carmelo Anthony 4-year/$72 million
#14 Aaron Gordon
#19 Willie Caulilie-Stien
Carmelo/Snell/2nd Rd pick
Can't afford to sign Melo just by getting rid of Boozer.
If he takes pay cut
Got rid of dunleyvey too, that's 18 mil a year.
Chris broussards math was wrong it would only be 14 million if amnestying boozer + dumping dunleavy's salary
Melo not taking paycut for Chicago only NY and CAA
07 Mar 2014 00:43:36
Bucks Trade: Brandon Knight, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Larry Sanders
Bucks Get: Jameer Nelson, Nikola Vucevic, Wizards 1st Round Pick From Suns
Magic Trade: Jameer Nelson, Doron Lamb, Tobias Harris
Magic Get: Brandon Knight, Larry Sanders
Lakers Trade: Pau Gasol (Sign and Trade)
Lakers Get: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Tobias Harris, Emeka Okafor
Suns Trade: Emeka Okafor, Wizards 1st Round Pick
Suns Get: Pau Gasol (Sign and Trade)
Why Bucks - Get a true starting point guard, smilie starting center and a high first round pick
Why Magic - get a young point guard, and an athletic center to pair with victor O. Mo harkless and Andrew N
Why lakers - get two young players for the future to rebuild around
Why suns - get an established post player with championship experience
You put the bucks get Vucevic but didn't put that the magic had to trade him away?
Bucks say no 100 times out of 100.
And the Lakers couldn't get Okafor for Gasol, what makes you think you will get Giannis or Harris for Gasol. Mentally challenged Laker fan.
Gasol and Okafor are free agents and cannot be traded. Both teams have enough cap space in the summer to sign them directly if they want to.
Another unreal Lakers fan. No one is going to give what you are suggesting. Not even one of those players.
And Okafor is a FA so cannot be traded as such. All these teams have the cap space to sign Gasol directly if he is interested.
If bucks do this your adding lakers 1st round pick then
Lakers get two young talents for gasol pffff don't think so. Why would the magic want knight when they could draft a pg in this years draft with way better potential.
