Why would 76ers want an old bench player for one of the top young defensive big men in the league when the 76ers are one of youngest and worst teams in the league?

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 23:12:44
I don't think it's that ridiculous. It fills a dire need for both teams. The 76ers get an NBA player to play point. The Warriors get a nice replacement at center if they land KD.

If you asked me which of these guys contributed more to winning, I'm not sure i'd have an answer.

Sign and trade Barnes for Noel.

Wolves free agency

Take a chance on Terrence Jones now that he is an UFA, should come fairly cheap

From here I'm not totally sure:

Marvin Williams would be a good fit, but is a little old for the team and might be too expensive.

Bazemore would be nice as well, but again possibly too expensive

(And only enough space to sign 1 of these 2)

If able to sign Williams, go after Crabbe

If Bazemore, go after Leur or Bass.

Possible lineups (expecting injuries to KG and Pek)

Rubio/ Dunn/ Jones
Lavine/ Crabbe
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Williams/ Jones/ Bjelica/ KG
Towns/ Dieng/ Pek


Rubio/ Dunn/ Jones
Lavine/ Bazemore
Wiggins/ Bazemore/ Shabazz
Bass or Leur/ Jones/ Bjelica/ KG
Towns/ Dieng/ Pek.

Crabbe is a restricted free agent and filled a nice role with the Blazers. I expect them to resign him or match any offer sheet unless you are overpaying.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 21:13:41
It would probably take 15 million a year to scare Portland away from crabbe. Not sure minny would pay that much with what they have on the horizon with Wiggins, towns, ect.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 23:08:51
I like Crabbe, but if MN is going to spend big money, the should go after Batum. He does so a little of everything.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Jul 2016 00:10:10
I actually don't like batum for minny. Batum has a habit of getting bored and disengaged if he's not a main ball handler. If he's going to be the third ball hander and 3rd or 4th option, I don't think he's as good as he was last year.

I really think someone needs to make him their starting PG. His defense is infinitely better guarding the point than guarding a wing. And he's a very good ball handler and passer. He would create a terrible matchup problem at point.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Jul 2016 01:08:02
Will Crabbe really get that much? I thought it would take less, then they should go after someone cheaper.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2016 01:32:20
And I'd have to agree with Ben Miller about Batum, just not a good fit on the Wolves, plus there's no need to prevent Towns and Wiggins from developing while being the go to guys.

30 Jun 2016 18:58:28
Hawks/ Bulls

Hawks get: Taj Gibson, Aaron Brooks

Bulls get: Kyle Korver, Mike Muscala, Thabo Sefelosha

Hawks get: a good defensive back up for Paul Millsap, also can rebound and block some shots and hit an open jumper, they also get a back up PG that can score and knock down 3's. Which is what Dennis Schroder lacks is a 3 point shot Aaron Brooks can shoot it.

Bulls get: when healthy still a good marksman from 3 with Korver off then bench behind Jimmy Butler, they get a defensive wing in Thabo who would be an upgrade over Mike Dunleavey, and they get a young stretch 4 in Muscala who provides depth to the Bulls bench.
What do y'all think?

Taj Gibson and Tony Snell to TOR

Terrance Ross and a second rounder.

Believable6 Unbelievable4

30 Jun 2016 17:35:29
The Bulls should take a chance on overpaying DWade, start Valentine at the point and move Butler back to the 3. Trade Snell for a second rounder. Package Dunleavy Calderon and the Kings pick for Covington and a second.



Whatchu think?

Believable3 Unbelievable7

30 Jun 2016 22:23:22
Valentine is not a PG. Chicago better off with D. Wade at the PG.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 17:34:22
Sixers change the game trade and rebuild scenario:

Trade Ben and Noel to Chicago for Jimmy Butler and Spencer Dinwiddle

Sign Harrison Barnes

Trade Covington to Detroit for Reggie Bullock (more of a move to make sure Harrison signs because him and Reggie are real close)

Sign a forward like Thomas Robinson, Darrell Arthur or Terrance Jones if Saric doesn't come over.

Sign Greivis Vasquez

2016 Lineup and bench

PG - Dinwiddle
SG - Butler
SF - Barnes
PF - Saric or free agent 4
C - Okafor

Bench: Vasquez, Bullock, Nik S., Embiid, Holmes, two rookie wings just drafted

The team is built to win now and win later. All three of the bigs currently on the roster (if healthy) are ready made to win now so we need to put a roster together to make it happen. Harrison, Butler and Dinwiddle are three interchangeable wing players that can guard any wing position in the league which could mask Okafor's deficiencies until he gets better and Saric gets to play o his strengths.

Believable1 Unbelievable8

Why do you think Dinwiddie is a starter in the NBA? Every post you have for the sixers involves them getting Dinwiddie and Bullock.

Warriors get Demetrius Jackson, rights to Abdel Nadar, and Cavs 2017 2nd rd pick

Celtics get Andrew Bogut.

Believable7 Unbelievable6

30 Jun 2016 17:06:35
How bout a hand full of sticks for Bogut. Bogut isn't worth Jack.

Agree2 Disagree4

30 Jun 2016 17:15:21
Well he was the starting center on a record breaking team and he played 70 games this year. He is a smart big man who will protect the rim, grab boards, and can pass well with 1 year left on his contract. This deal is worth it for the Celtics to get his veteran presence for a year.

Agree4 Disagree2

30 Jun 2016 17:29:53
The Celtics are basically giving up "Jack", so its fine.

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 17:49:40
Bogut is so underrated. Is because he was drafted #1 that people don't like him that much?

Agree4 Disagree3

30 Jun 2016 18:11:04
And we are also not even giving up anything that will help us ever. Jackson won't crack the rotation let a lone the active roster. And the others won't have any impact in the NBA if they even get contracts.

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 19:41:44
Bogut was a zero impact player for most of the year. Let me help you out. Anyone that scores less then 10 a game is none impact player. I know he wasn't asked to do much in gs. Because he couldn't do anything. Period.

Agree0 Disagree4

30 Jun 2016 20:03:31
Scoring isn't all there is in the NBA lol. He was a good passer, rebounder, and defensive player. He'd give Boston championship experience.

Agree5 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 21:23:35
He'd give Boston a headache at his two ppg stat line he normally throws up. You do realize that be playing four on five on offense right? That works out really well when you have curry green and Thompson but with ishiah Thomas, Bradley, crowder and sully? That's already a Team who can't score.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 21:24:22
For the record. I'm not saying the pick up for Boston would be bad. I'm saying giving up anything of value for him is bad.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 16:28:15
Okc is trying to sign horford so they need to drop some salary. To do this they'll probably have to trade enes kanter and kyle singler (not that he does anything except get paid) . What are some possible trades for kanter? I was thinking a trade for a decent sf and a to back up Durant IF he resigns a back up centre and a few picks.

Players in mind - ariza, crowder (bit of a reach), tyreke evans, mahinmi, randle, dieng

Starting line up


Ideal bench
Roberson / morrow
Ariza / huestis
Ilyasova / sabonis
Dieng / mcgary.

Believable0 Unbelievable7

30 Jun 2016 16:43:00
Or just sign and trade Horford to OKC for Kanter, Singler, and rights to Abrines. Then sign a backup SF like Joe Johnson or Jared Dudley

Westbrook/ Payne
Oladipo/ Roberson/ Morrow
Durant/ Johnson/ Huestis
Horford/ Ilyasova/ Collison
Adams/ Sabonis/ McGary.

Knicks offseason

It looks like the Knicks will have approximately $33M to spend this offseason, but also have many holes to fill. Sounds like Noah is coming to town, which at the reported $18M a year sounds crazy to me, but let's say it's a done deal. With $15M left and one or two trade chips, here's what I think they can come up with.


To SAS - Kyle O'Quinn, future 2nd

To NYK - Danny Green

This only works if the Spurs are looking to clear cap space for a big signing. The Knicks get much needed shooting at a net add of $6M to their cap.

Let Galloway walk, sign Seth Curry 2 years, $8M.

I like Galloway, but I see him costing the Knicks more than Curry. Curry offers more shooting and better PG play.

Sign Dwight Powell 2 years, $7M.

Re-sign Lance Thomas at MLE for two years.

Re-Sign Cleanthony Early for minimum.

Add a vet Center at the minimum.

2016-17 Roster

PG - Rose, Curry
SG - Green, Early
SF - Melo, Thomas
PF - Zinger, Powell
C - Noah, Vet, Hernangomez

It's a better shooting team, and if two of Rose, Green or Noah get back to form, along with continued growth from Curry, they could be a 7th or 8th seed.

Believable5 Unbelievable5

30 Jun 2016 16:37:32
Knicks have to hope to land a big time free agent. They don't want to be stuck 7-8 seed. It's NBA hell. It would be ok if it was a young team like the Celtics in 2015 and could still improve but the Knicks are getting older.

Agree3 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 16:44:15
That's a steal for Danny Green.

Agree4 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 16:45:14
This isn't an accurate statement, especially with the boom in salary for the following year. A team like the knicks would be thrilled making the playoffs, because it shows significant growth. Often, the difference between the 8th spot and a top 3 spot is a single player.

So if the knicks improve to make the playoffs, it is realistic that a top tier free agent would be attracted and come in.

The concept that being a playoff team isn't worthwhile unless you are top couple spots is nonsense. That only makes sense if you are actively going through a rebuild and your future is dependent on the draft, aka the sixers or lakers. The knicks aren't going that route, thus an improvement in the playoffs is key to their success over the next few years.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 17:17:35
Ok, so if the Knicks are the 8th seed, are you saying Westbrook, Durant or Griffin would be attracted to team with only one good young prospect in Zinger? Because Noah and Melo will be what 33 or something? Rose will be a free agent and could command 20+ mill. Yes they could maybe compete for a top 4 seed if they get one of them but fall short again. Cavs won't be bad until Lebron leaves or retires. It might not be an attractive situation. In think best bet is sign Noah without giving him a long term deal, with the rest, hope to sign Bazemore and be better than expected at this point. Try for the Playoffs, see how it goes, but trade Melo the following year and build around Porzingas. I would love to see the Knicks get rid of Jackson and see Dolan sell the team. Maybe they turn it around with new ownership.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 18:57:25
Keep in mind THEKING, if the Knicks are going to sign Noah, they don't have the ability to swing for the fences. I would greatly prefer that they don't sign Noah and go after a premium FA, but there's no guarantee that they land one.

I based my post on them signing Noah. If they don't, then my post would be different.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 20:26:44
Yeah I understand Triangle. I don't think Noah is the way to go, but you guys have a great shot at him. I would've preferred Horford for the Knicks. He would be awesome.

Lowry, Joseph, Wright.

I think if Philly wanted knight, that they would already have him. He's by far the worst of the Phoenix guard assets. Hence everyone picking him as the guard to move on from Phoenix.

30 Jun 2016 16:45:30
Philly needs the 1st rounder.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 17:08:23
Brandon knight is just okay. But take out staukis and the trade is fair I guess. Noel would be worth more if he wasn't on the Sixers who have a lot of bigs.

I'd rather see Oakfor for Bledsoe.

Phi - Bos - Brk

Send: Jahlil Okafor, 2nd Rounder
Receive: Jarrett Jack, Jaylen Brown

Send: Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, 2018 1st Round Pick (Still retain rights to Brk 2018 1st Round Pick)
Receive: Brook Lopez

Send: Jarrett Jack, Brook Lopez
Receive: Jahlil, Marcus Smart, 2018 Bos 1st Rounder, Phi 2nd Rounder

Phi - Need to get rid of a big, need a pg, can stockpile talent
Bos - Looking for an elite big man to help them win now, was already ok with trading 3rd pick (Brown) for an elite player on draft night, have enough future 1st round picks
Brk - Need to rebuild and would be hard to say no to that young talent + draft picks.

Celtics had their chance and the gm blew the draft. Enjoy mediocrity for the next five years. That gm should be fired. Terrible job draft day.

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 17:25:35
I wouldn't say he needs to be fired. I expected him to fail draft day. He has done so basically every year he has been at the helm. His only good draft day was back in 07 when he traded for Ray Allen. There are countless drafts where he traded the pick for nothing (traded the pick that netted the Blazers Roy for Telfair and Ratliff) . He does a good job at trades outside of draft night. He still has some assets left and I know that they aren't the greatest but he still has a lot to work with. He has done a lot with what he has and I expect them to finally get a big free agent and I think this team will be in the Eastern Conference Finals next season.

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 19:43:05
Larry. The problem is people know he's a con artist now. He rips people off and no one wants to deal with him anymore. Ainge should be out by next season. Unless they sign Durant!

Send: Okafor, 2nd Round pick
Receive: Jarrett Jack, Jaylen Brown

Send: Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart
Receive: Brook Lopez

Send: Brook Lopez, Jarret Jack
Receive: Jahlil Okafor, Marcus Smart, 2nd Round pick

Reasons for trade:
Phi - Needs to unload big, needs a PG, can stockpile prospect.
Celtics - Want a difference maker big man, has room to unload guards, in a win now mode and wanted to trade that 3rd pick for an established player at the draft
Nets - Need to rebuild, want to trade Jack.
