Not sure how to make it work salary wise, somebody help me

DEN: J Thompson, N Stauskus, #6 pick

SAC: T Lawson, K Faried

DEN trades their 2 most expensive contracts and commits to rebuild. They get a couple cheaper contracts and a high lottery pick they can have back to back picks or use them both to trade up to #1-#4 possibly if they choose to.

SAC gets high energy PF who can run the floor and a really good PG (both have played for Karl in DEN). They can use the MLE for B Wright and resign Casspi

PG: Lawson/McCallum
SG: McLemore/Collison
SF: Gay/Casspi

Interesting. I wonder if la would that deal too. Sixers might say yes but only with the 15th pick included. If not I think they'd rather have Russell on the cheap contract to start.

Just because your Knicks might want to trade their pick doesn't mean the Lakers want to!

22 May 2015 19:36:21
Its an interesting idea, since the Sixers at 15 have the fire power to move back up.

I think the Sixers pass though. They're trying to get all the stud young talent to blend and peak/mature at the same time.

2 knicks trade move
Clippers get Melo (Hibbert for Crawford Hawes)
Rockets get Jordan 5yr-
Knicks get Howard

Clippers get a cheaper anchor who hits free throws and CP3 Griffin and Melo become the next big 3 that wins

Harden does not need Howard scoring, he could use Jordan who is more dominating defensively than Howard.

Howard will get 25 SPG in the triangle, he can dominate next to great passing big like Marc if he played at PF. It might be time bring Ewing back to improve Howard's post game.

Mavs get Calderon Andersen Turner-10
Heat get Hardaway Larkins Upshaw-21 D.Johnson-52
Knicks get McRoberts Chalmers Napier

Mavs make this move if Chandler and Rondo go to
Lakers. Turner could develop better all around player than Okafor and maybe Towns.

Heat cut payroll to make cap space to resign Whiteside
and Dragic. Hardaway is wade replacement when retires. Both Larkin and Hardaway are linked to Miami area.

Knicks get Better PGs and reserve big better than Bargnani.

Knicks sign Marc Gasol 4yr 80mil, D. & G. Green 4yr 36mil

Triangle type offense

Jackson had nothing to do with Howard's time in la. Howard only went to la bc he thought jackson was also going. Howard and jackson are good for eachother in triangle. Jackson might consider coaching this roster.

I don't see NOLA getting W Chandler for 2 2nds? Is that what they're trading away because you don't say.

Orlando takes on Lee and his expiring contract. Gives up a second rd pick also.

22 May 2015 13:41:48
So one minute the Knicks are the 2nd pick in the draft and getting either Okafor or Towns, the next minute they're getting the crap off the end of the Thunder bench instead.

Gotta suck to be a Knick fan right now. Maybe a couple free agents come to NY. But that draft lottery's going to leave a mark on that franchise for a long time.

Yes let's build dynasty by being last place over 10 yrs.

Agree2 Disagree1

22 May 2015 14:53:24
Don't like it. Knicks can still get an impact player at the four spot. A point guard like mudiay would be great.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2015 17:05:57
Lol worst knicks trade I've ever seen

Agree2 Disagree0

22 May 2015 10:33:06

Knicks gets: 6th, Collison, Stauskas

Kings gets: 4th, Early

King move up in the draft to pick a franchise PG Mudiay. Takes back a cheap contract in Early.

Knicks move back in the draft and get a cheap PG for the triangle. They can move Calderon later in another deal. Stauskas is a much needed young piece for the Knicks.

Believable9 Unbelievable5

22 May 2015 13:42:48
I like it. Any way the Knicks dump Calderon on the Kings too?

Agree0 Disagree3

22 May 2015 14:35:50
Only way I see them being able to dump Calderon on the Kings is if they were willing to take back Jason Thompson. They do need frontcourt help, and with Muniday and Calderon, the Kings would have their PG position covered for next year and beyond.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2015 14:54:06
Not loving for the knick. They miss out on mudiay or Russell for nothing really.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 May 2015 14:55:55
I think it's really close to fair value. I think Sixers should probably return the pic pick next year as well in the deal.

Then it's more of an even trade and makes sense for both teams.

22 May 2015 03:10:32

New York receives Roy Hibbert, George Hill and 11th pick

Pacers receive 4th pick,

After dropping to the 4 th pick the Knicks are now more open to trading their pick than before. Roy Hubert is still a good center in this league, and with the pacers looking to play a faster pace he won't fit there anymore, but as a decent low post player and good defender he will work well in the triangle. George hill showed that he can be a good pg this year and plays good defense on the perimeter which the Knicks do not have. The 11thpick could also be used on a good contributor.

The Pacers with the 4th pick would get to draft Emmanuel mudiay, a big, athletic guard that paired with a healthy PG could be great for years to come, and he would fit into their new plans. Although it may seem that they are giving up a lot to move up 7 spots, this is not the case as Hibert will not fit anymore and they don't want his 16 million on the books next year and could leave in Free agency. So really they are giving up George Hill and the 11th pick for the 4th pick which is more than reasonable.

Lineups heading into free agency
Hill, Larkin
THJR, Galloway, Scehved
11th pick, Early
Melo, Acy
Hibert, Smith

Mudiay, Watson, Sloan
Miles, stuckey
PG, S.hill
West, scola, rudez
Mahimni, allen

This works out well for both teams so explain why if you put unbelievable.

Believable4 Unbelievable8

22 May 2015 12:49:35
Give them Calderon and THJ.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2015 14:58:46
Good trade. Makes sense for both teams. Knicks get a big and still get a first rounder. George hill is a serviceable point guard. Knicks would still need an amazing free agent to get back to the playoffs though.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2015 02:10:57
Sixers offseason:
heard a couple reports that Brooks Lopez wants to reunite with Jason Kidd with the Bucks. Lopez can opt in for &17 mill with the Nets, so I assume it will take similar $$ to get him to come to the Bucks. That may put the Bucks in a tough position to match offers for Khris Middleton. I'm not big on the idea of signing FA's(especially since at the moment it is a tough sell for any bigtime FA to come to philly), but Middleton may be worth it. He's a 6'8" shooting guard, shot 47% from the field, 41% from 3's, and 85% from the line. he's a freak athlete, and he's only 23 years young. Would be a great fit with Russell or Wroten in the backcourt. Offer him $13-15 mill per.
PG: Russell
SG: Middleton
SF: Grant/Covington
PF: Noel
C: Embiid
Plus own #1, Lakers#1, Heat #1, OKC #1, and Dario Saric coming over next year.(that's 5 number one talents Hinkie can draft or package next year for higher picks or players).
Still building 90% of the team through the draft. Middleton just looks like an excellent young fit that with a little luck may be obtainable.

Believable6 Unbelievable4

22 May 2015 13:49:12
I think the Bucks can do both Lopez and Middleton as long as they take Lopez first then sign Middleton under the Bird rule, allowing them to go over the cap. I"m not certain of this.

Agree2 Disagree2

22 May 2015 14:39:10
You are correct.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2015 15:00:47
I like the idea of this move but I don't think Middleton is worth it at this time. 13 to 15 million and you don't even know if embiid or third pick can play yet. I think you have to wait unless it's a can't miss player in free agency.

Agree0 Disagree0

Clippers Sign Wes Johnson, Gerald Green.
Resign Deandre 5yr/100mill, resign rivers.



This allows barnes to go to the bench like rivers prefers for him. Clippers get a backup big who can play the 4 or the 5 and allow hawes to spread the floor. Johnson becomes that 3 and d guy with athleticism and green comes in off the bench firing.

Clippers Trade:
-Spencer Hawes
-C.J. Wilcox
-2017 2nd Round Pick
-2018 2nd Round Pick

Clippers Get:

Timberwolves Trade:
-Kevin Martin

Timberwolves Get:
-Spencer Hawes
-C.J. Wilcox
-Tarik Black
-2017 2nd Round Pick
-2019 2nd Round Pick

Lakers do this so they can make a playoff push next year, and with a player who can back up Kobe helps the team stay healthy and helps Kobe stay healthy by him not needing to do so much firepower and so he doesn't have to play 35+ Min a night.

Clippers do this to get rid of the ugly contract of Spencer Hawes, and they can get another player who can contribute off the bench so next year the stars don't have to play a lot of minutes every night. And Nick Young is still in LA where he is a "fan favorite"

Timberwolves do this so they can get younger, getting rid of Kevin Martin will help accelerate Zach LaVine's development by giving him more minutes, the Timberwolves also get a stretch four in Hawes whose contract may be bad right now, but when the cap comes in when its 2017 it won't be so bad at that time, they also gain a rookie in Tarik Black who has proven to be a steal in the draft.

Jackson is not a SG when he played their for the Thunder he struggled. KCP can play either and has done so on numerous occasions, and Jennings has not proven he will be ready health wise to play or that he can play at the same level. Aldridge is going to resign with Portland, Green is a SF all the time, I think Johnosn would be their third or fourth choice at least to draft behind the two europeans, and Winslow. You have a better chance in signing Thad Young to play the four and maybe Drayond Green or Milsap. Gerald Green would be a good depth player for this roster.

Sac - Phi

Sac gets: #3 Russell, Noel

Phi gets: #6 Mudiay, McLemore, McCallum

Sac depth:
Rusell / Collison / Stockton
Stauskas / FA signing
Gay / Re-sign Casspi
Noel / Landry / Moreland
Cousins / Thompson

Phi depth will change too much haha

Sacramento more clearly addresses their needs of shooting and defense, while spreading out the playmaking/passing responsibilities across more positions (Cousins and Gay are going to have the ball in their hands a certain amount of time anyway, so getting a shooter in Russell instead of a more ball-dominant guard like Mudiay seems more efficient). They could sign a SG like Afflalo to a short deal (so he cashes in with new TV deal) while Stauskas develops and Collison eventually goes back to a 6th man role.

The Sixers might have a hard time choosing between Russell and Mudiay (who seems like a better fit to drive and dish to Embiid, even though he seems to be higher-risk, higher-reward), but with this trade they surround Mudiay with shooting in McLemore and Covington and solve their crowded frontcourt problem for the next draft. The Sixers can still afford to swing big for a while, but at least they can go forward with this core and build without a crazy amount of roster turnover.

i don see the sixers dropping 3spots in the draft and trading noel for mclemore and mcallum. just giving up more to get less?? great for sac though, very one-sided imo.

I say the sixers do it even though even though it is true, worth than that I say phil jackson has shown to look like bigger idiot than what the sixers have planned over last 5 yrs. This is why I believe the league planted the ping pongs in favor of lakers and wolves bc the sixers and now knicks have idiots in management. If any team 3 yrs in a row has a worse top 5 records, they should give their franchise to another city. A little different than what english soccer does. But the goal is to punished teams who stay bad on purpose.

Sas wizards
Diaw and Bellineli(s&t) for Humphries and Webster
Spurs do this to move Diaw's big contract(8 million) so they can sign Leonard and big free agent names (Marc Gasol, Aldridge). They get Webster's expiring contract and god role player in Humphries.

Wizards do this because they get good shooter in Bellineli and strech four who can defend. They gave away Webster who didn't play much and Humphries who isn't in future plans.

Webster is not expiring, he has two years left, and by making this trade the Spurs actually take on $1M more in salary. No way they make this deal.

Teams under salary cap don't have MLE. They have room exception which is $2.8 million for one year or up to $5.8 million for two seasons.

Why can't Lakers fans accept that you're not pawning off Nick Young for a future second round pick. I don't most teams would take Nick Young for #27.

Jordan hill should just be cut and nick young trade for anything.

In this scenario, the LAL aren't under the salary cap ($67.1M), they're under the luxury tax threshold ($81M). Once a team is at or over the cap, they can only sign their own FA with Bird rights and their draft picks and go
over the cap. Otherwise, a team that is over the cap can only use exceptions (Mid Level, Mini Mid Level, Bi Annual) if available or sign FA to their respective minimum salaries (based on # of years they've been in the league).

Agree2 Disagree4

21 May 2015 23:04:04
Once a team got under salary cap, they just have room exception and veterans minimum in order to sign a player whose rights do not belong them. In this case, you suppose Lakers renounce some players' rights to get rid of their cap holds from salary cap, so that they will have more cap space to acquire new players. For example, Portland is not going to renounce their players' rights, so they can resign them via bird rights and use MLE by being over the cap.

The lakers are giving the 27 pick leuven not getting it

Detroit Pistons off-season

Draft with the #8 pick overall the Pistons select Mario Hezonia from Spain, and then with the #38 pick overall the pistons select Jarell Martin PF from LSU

Free agency
re-sign Jackson

Believable but its kinda hard to tell who they will draft because I think it would end up deciding between mario and stanley

Agree3 Disagree0

21 May 2015 22:26:53
And most likely mario won't be available at 8 and i'm strongly confident that stanley will be there at 8. But if mario is there then they should pick him

Agree1 Disagree1

22 May 2015 14:58:32
I think Johnson is behind the two europeans with WInslow getting the nod if he falls their as their first choice. I think that if they draft a SF they will sign a PF in FA like Thad Young before they start a second round pick who is a great athlete but needs work on his game.

NEVER let Matthews walk, why would you? If anything skip amare and take green and Matthews.

On that topic, 10 million a year for amare? Absolutely not, never ever. I'd rather just make Meyers Leonard the starting PF and see how that goes. Also, why not retain Lopez? He's younger and healthier than Chandler, and he likes being in Portland.
