It is not a Rondo issue in Dallas. It is an efficiency issue. It was already there, but it becomes highlighted wenn the Mavs doesn't run crazy fast, to accomplish the missing scoring efficiency. So Mavs have to adjust their shooting and finishing. At some point Rondo will also find his confidence to score with his drives like he has done in the past.
Think it is also a bench thing. The second unit have to be able to hold a game or to score again opponents second units.
Updating Mavs it would like to see to add Lavoy Allen, he can hit the ball, defend bigs and rebound. At Pacers he is not an important value, plays only as a backup. With another pick, they can try to get another piece, e.g. a SG.
And add Butler again. In Detroit he doesn't fit well. But he is a spot up shooter from midrange and behind the arc or he can drive to an open basket. Exactly what Mavs need in the second unit.
-Sign FA ONeal
-2nd from Mavs
-Felton (to backup Jennings injury)
30 Jan 2015 06:02:10

SF. K. Durant/ A. Roberson
C. N. Pekovic/ S. Adams/ M. McGary
SG. A. Morrow/ D. Waiters
Pg. R. Westbrook/ M. Williams/ I. Smith
29 Jan 2015 22:50:53
CLE: N. Cole
MIA: B. Haywood
Cleveland gets an upgrade over Dellavadova at backup PG in Cole, who they could also resign long term after the season because he's a restricted free agent.
Miami would basically be trading for Haywood's unique contract which is totally Non-guaranteed for $10.5 mil next season. Since the Heat are over the cap, the only way to add a high salary player is by trade. Haywood's contract would be attractive to a team like Brooklyn who is looking to shed salary and it could help Miami match salaries for a player like Deron Williams or Brook Lopez. This may not quite make Miami a contender but it would help maintain fan interest and it would be the right thing to do by Wade to at least give contention a puncher's chance during his last few years.
29 Jan 2015 22:45:48

Thunder get Ed Davis, Jordan Clarkson, and 2015 2nd rd pick (#34 right now)
29 Jan 2015 22:08:21

29 Jan 2015 21:45:08

29 Jan 2015 20:54:34
OKC - Lakers - Pistons
OKC get Hill and Young (LA)
Lakers get Perkins, Perry (OKC), Datome (Det) and first draft pick
Pistons get Jackson (OKC) and Kelly (LA)
29 Jan 2015 20:04:11
Nuggets trade Lawson, McGee, Afflalo, Hickson, Green
Nuggets get Jackson, Stauskas, Williams, Thompson, Perkins, 1st round pick Kings
Kings trade Stauskas, Williams, Thompson, Sessions, Evans, 1st round pick
Kings get Lawson, McGee, Hickson (use trade exception J. Terry), Green (use trade exception I. Thomas)
Thunder trade Jackson, Perkins
Thunder get Afflalo, Sessions, Evans
- Only real loss is Lawson because he can be a longtime building block, but they get Jackson, Stauskas, a first round pick and 2 expiring contracts. huge cap space 2016. playoff contender within 2-3 years
- Kings give up talented shooter Stauskas and future 1st round pick, but they get Lawson and depth at froncourt with McGee and Hickson both with expiring contracts in 2016 to go after another major FA to pair with Lawson, Gay and Cousins.
- small roster upgrade, Jackson is not going to stay, he will get big payday and he also wants to be starting PG. Afflalo and Sessions give them upgrade at SG, experience, scoring and defense
29 Jan 2015 19:45:25
Blow things up in Okc (if only they don't make the playoffs)
Okc get Julius Randle , Miles Plumlee and 1st round pick from LAL via Houston , Jeremy Lin exp for salary and another future 1st from Lal
Lal get Serge Ibaka and Reggie Jackson
Phx get Jordan Hill (team option next season) and Lal 2nd rd pick
Okay first for LAL , they get the 2 best players in here so they could be the winner in this trade , they could be ready to rebuild come next season if they can resign Jackson and draft someone like Towns to pair with Ibaka at the frontcourt
For the Suns , they took a big contract of Jordan Hill but that guy will be a fit , the Suns need a defensive presence down low and that's Hill is all about
OKC Thunder plans now
make another trade
send Jeremy Lamb + a 2nd rd pick to Philadelphia for Jason Richardson (waive) - salary dump
- let Kendrick Perkins and Jeremy Lin walk
- sign Marc Gasol to 4yr 76mil deal , he'll do it to collaborate with two superstars and win a championship
draft with the Rockets pick a PG
2015-16 OKC Thunder
PG : Russ Westbrook , 2015 1st rd pick
SG : Andre Roberson , Dion Waiters , Anthony Morrow
SF : Kevin Durant , Perry Jones III
PF : Julius Randle , Mitch McGary
CE : Marc Gasol , Miles Plumlee
29 Jan 2015 19:33:11
Major Shake Up
NYK get: Coach Tom Thibedou & Jimmy Butler

PHI get Wilson Chandler , Andre Roberson , Serge Ibaka
Mudiay(draft)/2nd rd pick
DEN get Miami pick from Philly , Nerlens Noel and Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb , 2nd round pick from Philly
Surprisingly even trade.
Sixers can get so much more better players than that if the sixers are going to offer that
29 Jan 2015 19:17:59
Thunder get Kevin Love and Mathew Deladova
Cavs get Serge Ibaka, Reggie Jackson, and Jeremy Lamb
29 Jan 2015 19:15:06
DET - DAL
Only if they still want to try and get that 8th spot this year.
Dinwiddie for JJ Barea
29 Jan 2015 20:55:05
Detroit doesn't want Barea.
Why would Dallas make this trade?
Because they don't use Barea at all and Dinwiddie has the athleticism/potential to be decent in this league. He also has a 2nd rd contract. All of DAL PGs are getting old and they are light at SG after Monta which might be Dinwiddie's more natural position.
29 Jan 2015 19:13:36
DET - HOU
Datome (expiring) for Isaiah Canaan and Joey Dorsey
DET says bye bye to Cartier Martin
Rockets say no.
29 Jan 2015 18:24:57
Knicks - Pistons
Knicks trade Prigioni
Pistons trade Datome, 2015 second round pick (top 44 protected, if pick is outside top #44 then Pistons obligation to Knicks will be extinguished)
Pistons need another PG with Jennings done for the year.
Knicks just look to get anything they can for Prigioni so a swap of expiring contracts and a second round pick only if the Pistons make the playoffs.
I've always liked this trade as soon as Jennings went down. Not sure why it hasn't happened. Giving the pick has always been the issue I assume. but protecting it should work for both teams.
Yeah even if the Pistons miss the playoffs oh well. The Knicks don't add any long term salary.
29 Jan 2015 17:44:46
If the Thunder don't think they can make the playoffs, they should consider a major shakeup. KD and Russ should be the only off limit guys. However, I'd be reluctant to move Adams, Waiters. Target expiring deals and attack 2015 Free Agency full on.
Lakers get Serge Ibaka, Loul Deng, Jeremy Lamb, Andre Roberson, Perry Jones
***Ibaka is under contract for the next three seasons and is not only a premier rim protector, but he is young and expanding his range. Roberson and Jones have the makeup of elite defenders on the perimeter. Lamb has potential. Deng is a nice vet to put with Kobe and Ibaka.
Heat get Reggie Jackson and Nick Young
***Heat made a short-sighted move by betting on themselves when Lebron left. They didn't address the point position like they should, and Deng is no Lebron. By bringing in Jackson, they bring in a guy who is a starting caliber point and capable of being a spark to a tired team. Young has passion and can fill the Deng void.
Thunder get Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Julius Randle, Wayne Ellington
***Randle can be a nice young asset when losing Ibaka, Ellington can be a stopgap at the 2, but the get is the expiring deals. This summer, they'll have a combined $31M coming off the books. They'll only have KD, Russ, Waiters, Morrow, Randle, Adams, McGary, Jarrett under contract. If picks are involved, they will land here as well. They can target pieces that fit and bring them back into the championship conversation. It's a drastic trade but could be a gamble that pays off.
29 Jan 2015 18:15:46
I really don't understand how you value young players. You suggest that the Sixers should trade Embiid for Brook Lopez but now somehow Randle is enough to get Serge Ibaka, Luol Deng, Lamb, Roberson and Jones. Anyway, yeah, Thunder slam down the phone pretty hard on this monstrosity.
Thigs trade is lose lose lose for all three teams.
Trade Ibaka Jackson and Lamb for cap space?!?! Yeah no thanks
29 Jan 2015 17:24:03
Jazz - 76ers
Jazz get Kirilenko
76ers get Warriors 2016 second round pick
Sixers need to hurry the hell up to trade that fucker.
29 Jan 2015 17:20:35
M. Plumlee (PHO) x M. Speights (GSW)
29 Jan 2015 17:13:50
Chicago get Kenneth Faried and Aaron Afflalo
Denver get Lakers 1st rd pick top 5 and Jordan Hill
Lakers get Joakim Noah and Wilson Chandler
- sign Goran Dragic
30 Jan 2015 02:09:29
So what happens if the Lakers get the 6th pick in the draft?
29 Jan 2015 16:57:36
Denver get Reggie Jackson
Oklahoma City get Jameer Nelson and JJ Hickson + 2nd rd pick
Thunder say no
30 Jan 2015 02:12:05
Before the Waiters trade I would say that OKC would want Afflalo or Chandler. I don't see them making this trade to the Nuggets
29 Jan 2015 16:37:49
Bulls - Wolves - Celtics
Bulls trade McDermott, Snell, Moore, 2015 first round pick
Bulls get Martin, Robinson III
Wolves trade Martin, Robinson III
Wolves get Snell, Thorton (waived), Bulls 2015 first round pick, Cavs 2016 first round pick (from Celtics)
Celtics trade Thorton, Cavs 2016 first round pick
Celtics get McDermott, Moore (waived)
Bulls look to add scoring and shooting off their bench and add the savvy vet Martin.
Wolves have no long term plans for Martin so swapping him out for a young role player (Snell) and two likely late first round picks is a good return for a young rebuilding team.
Celtics have a billion picks coming their way in future drafts so swapping a late first round pick (from the Cavs) for the former lottery pick shooter McDermott (who the Celtics were very high on before the draft).
29 Jan 2015 16:18:12
5 teams trade
Nets trade Dwill and Lopez
Nets get Jackson and Lamb (okc), Thompson and Williams (kings) and Young (minny)
Thunder trade Jackson, Perkins and Lamb
Thunder get Chandler (denver), Collison (kings) and Karasev (nets)
Kings trade Collison, Williams and Thompson plus 2nd rd pick
Kings get Williams(nets), Hickson (nuggets)
Nuggets trade Chandler and Hickson
Nuggets get Lopez
Wolves trade Young
Wolves get Perkins(minny) plus 2nd rd pick from sactown
29 Jan 2015 16:16:04
Kings - 76ers
Kings trade Stauskas, McCallum, Moreland, 2015 first round pick (protected picks #11-30, if pick falls #11-30 then Kings will trade 2017 first round pick unprotected)
76ers trade Carter-Williams, Kirilenko
Here's how the protections on the Kings pick work. The Kings first round pick goes to the Bulls (from the Cavs) protected picks #1-10 till 2017. So if the 2015 first round pick is #1-10 it goes to the 76ers, if the pick is #11-30 it goes the Bulls, meaning the Kings debt to the Bulls has been paid. Then the Kings will be allowed to trade their 2017 first round pick to the 76ers instead.
Kings swap out three young players who don't get a lot of PT for the former rookie of the year and defensive minded wing might push the Kings into the playoffs. If not a core of MCW Gay and Cousins is a nice young building blocks for a team up on the rise.
The 76ers have never been high on MCW so sending him out for a rookie lottery shooter (Stauskas) who the Sixers were very high on before the draft and a likely lottery pick is a solid return for a guy the team doesn't feel is part of their future.
29 Jan 2015 18:16:59
I would do this as a Sixers fan
U may think sixers would get better in this trade but they wont. Those players are not even close to an nba caliber level. And we don't need those picks because we have enough.
29 Jan 2015 15:56:11
Heat - Hornets
Heat trade Cole, McRoberts, Granger, 2015 second round pick
Hornets trade Stephenson, Taylor, Maxiell
Reportedly the Heat have interest in Stephenson. Now will acquiring Stephenson push the Heat into the top five spots in the eastern conference playoffs? No, but he will (assuming he returns to Pacer form) lock the Heat into the six seed.
The Hornets my be in a tough spot to swallow. They are still in the playoff chance but with an injury to Walker (likely keeping him out 8 weeks at least) they might want to sell and look to grab a lottery player for a rebound season next year. Either way the team is looking to remove Stephenson from their team. While the return isn't great, removing Stephenson without taking back any long term bad contracts is what the goal for the Hornets should be.
29 Jan 2015 15:41:13
Rockets - Nets
Rockets trade Terry, Papanikolaou, Jones, Capela, Shved (waived), Pelicans 2015 first round pick
Nets trade Lopez, Anderson, Brown
Reportedly the Rockets have joined the Lopez sweepstakes, and this is the frame work of the trade. Don't ask me why, I personally think the Rockets would be better off making a trade to acquire a better point guard and back up center than throwing all their assets into a trade for a player who won't fit next to Howard and Harden and can walk as a free agent after the season.
30 Jan 2015 02:15:36
The Nets would do this in a heartbeat just for the thought of actually having a First Round pick before the year 2050. /s
This trade might actually might happen just because Dwight might be out for a while.
29 Jan 2015 14:13:28
Blow up the Nuggets Roster

Trade hill sacre boozer kelly for future 2nd round picks
Kobe Young Ellington
Gasol will get more and be on a better team with memphis
I think Marc will accept 5-year, $107M contract offer from Grizzlies rather than a 4-year, $70M offer from rebuilding Lakers team.
29 Jan 2015 04:11:24
OKC trades: Jackson, Perkins, Unprotected 2015 1st
OKC gets: Hibbert and Stuckey
OKC gets a big man
Ind trades: Hibbert, West, Stuckey, 2015 Unproteced 1st

succeed and proceed
OKC can't trade 2015 first round pick (Waiters trade)
29 Jan 2015 04:01:20
Thunder get Wilson Chandler and Jameer Nelson
Nuggets get Reggie Jackson, Perry Jones, and Kendrick Perkins
29 Jan 2015 03:54:50
Where are the Mavs?
If Nowitzki doesn't hit the big shoots, if Rondo doesn't hit easy shoots and doesn't finish drives to the basket, if there are no easy spot up shooters, if there are many turnovers and less rebounds and only Ellis have the strikes - can see a winning Mavs Team.
Be honest also before Rondo, the Mavs where not the Team, that win over the top teams. With Rondo you can see much better defense.
So Mavs need to setup new players! A good shooter, SG/SF another good PF and another Center - to keep always preasure on the opponent - and to chance to see the starting five score in a better manner in that case.
Sign ONeal? Try to get Plumlee would be better. And the proposal I have read:
Biombo but also Beal for Felton and 2nd picks?
Beal for Felton and 2 second round picks? Has Raymond even played this season?
1) Neal not Beal. 2) Felton has played but little. Felton has no value outside the cap number he has.
