4 team trade

Boston Receives Derrick favors
Phoenix receives Drummond and Hilliard
Detroit receives Bledsoe, Burks, bender
Utah receives Bradley and warren

Boston lacks frontcourt depth and rebounding. Favors solves both of those problems. Both favors and bradley's contracts expire in a year. Seems fair to me.

Phoenix drafts Ball. Phoenix gets an athletic big who could be a great lob threat for Ball.

Detroit drafts Jarrett Allen. Stan Van Gundy is excellent at developing big men (Howard, Drummond). Allen has all the physical tools. He just needs good coaching. They also get a talented point guard, a scoring wing that could help a weak bench, and a young stretch 4 (which Detroit has been looking for).

Utah gets an all NBA defender who would be a great starting 2 guard for them. They get a talented young scorer in warren. This trade also opens up more than $10 million in cap space to help re-sign Hayward and hill.

Not horrible. But just take out that last trade. Stauskas and Dedmon are both free agents and plus Dedmon is now too good to be a 3rd string.

76ers/Knicks trade
76ers draft
76ers FA
As a sixer fan I hope they get the top pick and draft Fultz. But there's only a 14% chance of that happening. More realistic the laker pick conveys(53%) and sixers wind up with picks 5 and 6.

Draft:#5 Isaac, #6 Monk. Seems reasonable.

Sign:JJ Redick 2 years/42m. Seems reasonable.

Trade:
Sixers get Melo
Knicks get OKC 2020 protected#1, 2019 knicks #2 returned, Stauskas.

Sixers take back Melos 56 million for 2 years. Melo is still close to NY and 1 hour from his home town. Knicks get a late #1, early #2, a back up shooting guard and salary relief.
Possibly reasonable???

After 2 years Melo and Redicks contracts expire. Fits Sixers timetable of salary perfectly. let's young guns( all 19yrs old) Isaac, Monk, and Korkmaz ease into future starting roles. Saric becomes ultimate 6th man and leads second unit. Very fluid roster with possible position movement for better match ups. Eventually seeing Isaac as the starting stretch 4 once he bulks up some. Most likely Okafor is also moved some time soon for future pick. The additions of redick and melo added to a core of simmons. Embiid, and saric ahould lead this team into the playoffs. Playoff experience for these young guys should pay dividends buy the time they are all 22-26 and hitting their primes. Plus Sixers still have all their own pick, a valuable unprotected Kings #1 in 2019, and more 2nd rounders then they can handle.

Pg:Simmons,Bayless,McConnell
Sg:Redick,Monk,Korkmaz,Anderson
Sf:Covington,Isaac,Luwawa-Cab
Pf:Melo,Saric,Isaac
C: Embiid,Holmes,Okafor

Two questions:
1. Any trade needs Anthony's approval. Why would he agree to go to one of the worst teams in the league?
2. Why would a team with young talent and a future want Anthony?

Doesn't make sense from either end.

Agree2 Disagree4

30 Apr 2017 16:53:19
Supercollinder: Actually you kinda contradicted yourself. Worst team in the league, but has talent and a future? You can't judge the same thing in the present and future tense just to fit your opinion. Also, Porzingis said he loved playing with melo because it " made the game easier for him". I think guys like simmons, embiid, and saric could also benefit in a similiar way. Young guys always point to the veterans as to why they where able to figure out " how to succeed" in the Association. A "future" in NBA terms means " if it don't happen in 3-5 years, its time to rebuild again. Sixers are on the cusp of being a good team. Plus, there aren't many top teams that can take Melos humungous salary hit. Just because he has a no trade clause doesn't mean he can pick any team, it only means he can pick from the teams that can afford to trade for him. Hope this answered your questions.

I think Melo to Philly makes a lot of sense actually. For all Supercollider's hate on of Anthony, teammates seem to like him. He got rave reviews from his teammates in Brazil, and you hear a guy like Zinger talk with reverence about him, and at least partly skipped his exit interview with PJ based on how Melo was treated.

I also think Melo would consider Philly, they're a better team than the Knicks right now, will continue to grow, and he'll still get the chance to be the go-to scorer there.

Jvoug, you realize who talking to about Melo?

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Apr 2017 19:02:07
I'm not sure Reddick signs with Philly, but that seems like more than a fair price for him.

I think you'd need to include Okafor in the trade with Melo. Okafor and Porzingas would be interesting. Porzingas can stretch the floor and open up in the inside for Okafor and cover for his defensive inability. That's exactly the type of big you need to pair Okafor with.

There is a lot of talk about Celtics offseason. I think this one is realistic and a great for Boston.

1. We get lucky in the lottery and get the 1st pick

2. Draft Night: Draft Fultz with the 1st pick. Trade Bradley( I love him, but his contract expires, and we must look for the future cap situation) to Minnesota for a future 1st Rounder. Draft Bell in the 2nd Round and trade they other 2nd Round picks.

3. Let walk Olynyk, Johnson, Micky, Young, Jerebko and Jackson

4.Free Agency: Sign Hayward(4year max),Sign Ian Clark with our MLE (8.4Mil) to a 4 year 33.6 Mil deal, Sign Andrew Bigut(Vet. Min) Sign Aaron Brooks (Vet.Min) and brung back Gerald Green for the Vet. Min.



Celtics 17-18

PG: Thomas ' Rozier ' Brooks
SG: Fultz ' Smart ' Clark
SF: Hayward ' Brown ' Green
PF: Crowder ' Yabussele ' Bell
C: Horford ' Zizic ' Bogut

This is a great Team with a big future.

Harry, there are some problems here:
1. Between bad luck and the NBA rigging the lottery, we always get screwed over. I expect nothing less this year. Others may be counting on Fultz, but I'm not.
2. Not opposed to trading Bradley, but in your scenario next year's rotation would have three rookies and a second-year player. Young teams lose.
3. Thomas, Fultz, Hayward, Crowder and Horford. Who is going to rebound? You've traded away the team's best rebounder (Bradley) for a draft pick.
4. Speaking of draft picks, why would we need another one? The Celtics have enough to get them into the next century.

Agree0 Disagree8

30 Apr 2017 14:16:18
Not bad. Maybe instead of going after picks for Bradley, they could go after a Center or Pf who can rebound. I highly doubt Bogut takes the minimum to play for that team.

Agree1 Disagree2

30 Apr 2017 16:30:23
Would Boston be able to resign IT if they sign another max guy like Hayward with already having an overpaid horford?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2017 17:52:17
Simmonsorbust, I believe Bradley and Thomas are both signed for another year. Their contracts wouldn't affect any signings this summer, but two years from now the Celtics would be deep in the luxury tax if they kept both and added another max guy.

Believable1 Unbelievable7

30 Apr 2017 08:49:37
Two late picks for PG ain't good enough Nets would likely get a young talent in the deal not the lottery pick. So I'd rework this with the lottery pick going to Indy and Nets getting a young player with potential for taking on the bad contracts.

LAL: P George

IND: J Clarkson & J Randle

I know it's not equal valenfor PG, but the Lakers have so much leverage in this situation. All the rumors are saying PG wants to return to LA and play for the Lakers. He's a FA in a year, if you can't get a huge steal to trade for him, wait and sign him next year.

Other teams that will trade for him will gut there team Lakers can't afford to get there team for him take deal or or we will just wait to see if he will sign to Lakers as a fa.

Agree2 Disagree7

29 Apr 2017 20:33:53
They may have leverage, but it's not as though PG will make it Lakers or bust.

Also, there are other teams that will offer more, and take their chances that he'll resign.

Agree6 Disagree0

29 Apr 2017 21:57:47
He wants to win. The Lakers don't have any leverage. They have rumors that he may consider them a year from now.

Agree6 Disagree2

30 Apr 2017 00:38:25
Here's a quote from Sam Amcikin a USA Today article.

"Whether in free agency two summers from now or via trade before then, the four-time All-Star is still hell-bent on joining the Los Angeles Lakers. Maybe now more than ever. "

Other teams can offer more, but unless he makes assurances he'll resign, why would they offer more for a year or 1/ 2 year rental? It's a gamble. It's a gamble for the Lakers too to wait, but they do have all the leverage as of right now.

Agree0 Disagree5

30 Apr 2017 00:56:46
They have some leverage, but not nearly as much as you think. Boston is a huge player for George, and they would be a contender with him. I can't see him walking away from a contender. And if Indy does trade him, they can offer a ton more money, which is a huge factor too.

NLD, Sam Amick from USA Today said it, not PG13, and a writer has never been wrong before, right?

George isn't dumb, he's not going to be Lakers or bust. Limits his earning potential.

Triangle,
My point is yes it's rumors and not directly from the mouth of PG. But it's not me starting a rumor online and giving it credibility; this is coming from a nationally known and respected writer. They've been wrong many times, but usually where there's smoke there's fire. He may have heard an exaggerated rumor about PG's interest in becoming a Laker, but I guarantee he's not making it up. Something has been told to him with ties to PG about his desire or small interest in becoming a laker. My point is there aren't any other rumors of him stating a specific team he would like to play for, that leads me to believe that the want is there; in the end however, he might want a win-now situation more; we'love have to wait and see. But since the interest appears to be there, the Lakers shouldn't mortgage all of their young assets and possible too 3 pick this year when they already have a good chance to sign him the following year.
