Thunder - Aminu, Harkless.

Blazers - Kanter, 1st.

We need a wing quite badly and Aminu gives us a pretty solid one.

Lillard and Kanter in the P&R would be deadly and they expressed interest in him last year.

Shooting off the bench.

Plus i still think in the right system he can be a 14/ 3/ 3 guy.

Okafor. J, Stauskas. N
Ross. T, Patterson. P, Wright. D

Sixers a young PG to groom and a scorer at SG. Patterson also gives them some outside shooting and a decent backup PF

Raps play Okafor at PF and form a formidable duo with Val

31 Aug 2016 15:32:15
Why would philly do this. Ross a completely average player. Patterson is a big who doesn't help fix the log jam and wright is a complete nobody.

Terrible deal for philly.

Would love to see tyreke Evans on the thunder

Not sure about this trade but;

Mcgary or ilyasova, singler for evans

Tyreke/ Roberson
Kanter/ sabonis

= stronggg defensive lineup.

Believable1 Unbelievable3

31 Aug 2016 13:14:46
I think it'll cost more for Evans.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 13:37:28
Evans is a boneheaded ball hog volume scorer that can't shoot, I don't know how well that would fit with Russell Westbrook.

Agree1 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 15:06:39
Evans has talent but can't stay health. he need to improve his percentage from the three point line he's a terrible shooter. finally stop playing Evans at the small forward that's not his position. with he's size he need to just stick with the pg/ sg he played those two positions while at (memphis) college.

NO from Boston.

LA: C Landry+ Meeks+ return first round picks
Philly: Russell
Orl:L Williams+ 2rnd pick LA 17 and 18

LA can tank and rebuilt, they don't need Russell, they can play Clarckson PG. And there are other good Pg available the next few years.

Philly receive a talented young PG that already played with Simmons.

Orlando wants to win now, L Williams is a great sixth man for them. LA propably fall into the top three next year, so the 2019 1rnd pick will automaticly changed into the 2017 and 2018 2rnd picks.

Believable4 Unbelievable5

31 Aug 2016 12:34:46
"Don't need Russell" You do understand he was the 2nd pick with superstar potential.

Agree2 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 13:16:21
I can see your point for this trade. But I don't think la gets rid of Russell just because there's a lot of pg next year. We really know very little about that draft class as of now. got to give Russell a chance unless blown away.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 13:16:44
So are we saying that Lou Williams has the value of a more then likely lottery first round pick?

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 14:57:57
LA isn't going to trade Russell for another pick next year, why keep waiting and hoping on prospects to see if they will be good or not?

Oladipo imo is considerably better than all other players in the trade so I can't imagine Thunder giving him away for pennies after they were able to get a great deal for him.

Agree2 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 06:44:50
Thunder will never do that. Westbrook-Oladipo duo is interesting and possibly be one of the best defensive guard combo.

Thunder get screwed? They get gay nd tyreke- two versalite, above average to great defenders. Put roberson in with westbrokk and adams and gay at the 4 and u have the best smallball defensive lineup in the league.

Bucks/ OKC/ Sac

Bucks get Ersan and McGary
- adds an extra stretch 4 who can hit 3s

OKC gets Gay
- gets an upgrade at the wing

Sac gets Moose
-Moose takes the C so Cousins can go to the 4.

31 Aug 2016 03:43:45
No team is giving up anything for Bosh until they know he can play.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 04:25:12
At this point I don't think anybody will give up anything for Chris Bosh until more is known about how he stands from a health perspective.

Assuming Bosh is healthy and there are no long term effects of his health issues this would be a complete steal for Dallas value wise although the fit of Bosh and Dirk would be a little awkward in the short term (Dirk is nearing retirement) . Although value isn't terrible for Milwaukee and Matthews would be a great wing addition (although he wasn't himself last season I think he'll be better further removed from achilles injury) I wouldn't do it if I was Milwaukee. Powell doesn't strike me as anything special and seems like a guy who can just give you energy off the bench but isn't really great offensively or defensively. I much prefer to have Monroe who may not be a great fit for Bucks but is still young and has adept offensive and rebounding abilities and Maker who is very young and promising. I think he showed enough promise in summer league that it would be foolish for Bucks to trade him without trying him out more cause given his skill set the sky is the limit for him (Bucks obviously feel strongly about him given where they drafted him, well above where many ranked him)

For Miami I don't think Monroe would be a good compliment to Whiteside as he couldn't coexist really with Drummond who is similar in play style to Whiteside. Maker would obviously be an attractive piece as well. I'd much prefer a healthy Bosh however for that team since given the South Beach allure and if they had Whiteside, a healthy Bosh, and Dragic they could attract free agents and quickly become a contender again.

30 Aug 2016 22:03:17
Now that the Thunder have acquired Joffrey Leveargne it kind makes Ilyasova expendable.

Thunder get Rudy Gay

Kings get Cameron Payne, Ersan Ilyasova exp, Kyle Singler

Pf. E. Kanter/ J. Leveargne/ M. McGary
Sf. R. Gay/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ D. Sabonis/ N. Collison
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Abrines/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Price/ S. Christon.

Believable4 Unbelievable4

31 Aug 2016 02:26:53
Overpay for Gay.

Agree4 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 04:44:49
Thunder definitely have a bunch of big men with addition of Lauvergne. Although he has some range I don't think he is ready to be the true stretch 4 type Ilyasova is. That being said Thunder would be wise to move one or two of their bigs and getting rid of one of the oldest in Ilyasova would clear minutes for the younger guys to develop. I also like this deal as I believe Rudy Gay would be a decent relatively low risk addition for Thunder who still have a significant hole after Durant left. Gay would give them another player who can create his own shot and be a go-to scorer at times. He is a very inefficient player but given this value and Thunder's need for a 3 I think he'd be as good as anybody available at this price. If Oladipo can take the next step then Gay could also be pushed to the bench where I think he'd be best in giving a scoring bunch to the second unit that you partially lose with starting Kanter.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 10:38:56
OKC will not give Payne for Gay.

Agree3 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 13:31:59
I'd go as far to say a guy like ish Smith should have more value then Payne. I'm not sure why so many on here think he's good.

Gay would be a 100 percent better bench piece then Payne.

Agree0 Disagree2

30 Aug 2016 23:27:25
If NY and CHI can't work.
Cleveland trades Iman Shumpert, Tristan Thompson future first to Chicago for Dwyane Wade.
Cleveland trades Kevin Love, Jordan McRae, future first to NY for Carmelo Anthony
Kyrie Irving for CP3

Believable3 Unbelievable7

31 Aug 2016 00:37:48
Ny has no love for Love.

Agree3 Disagree2

31 Aug 2016 03:45:59
Agreed, Love doesn't fit in with the Knicks. A three team trade that moved Love somewhere else, and different assets coming back to the Knicks is a possibility.

I don't see Chicago making that deal.

Agree1 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 04:48:46
I know they're all friends but I don't like Wade on that team unless he's coming off the bench as a 6th man since they could really use a guy who can space the floor and hit the 3. As shizzee suggests a 3rd team would have to be involved to take Love and give something that fits better in NY for Melo since Love wouldn't fit well with Porzingis and Noah. I do however like Melo in place of Love on the Cavs then playing either he or Lebron at the 4.

As your lineup reveals if Cavs traded Thompson to get Wade they'd literally have no center other than Birdman who shouldn't be starting for a contender at this stage in his career.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 05:10:45
Cavs will not trade Tristan Thompson.

Agree1 Disagree4

31 Aug 2016 06:15:46
Cavs will trade Thompson before Love but it should be the other way around but Love is almost just as important as Bron and Kyrie in managements eyes since the championship. They want to keep the big three together but if they could add Anthony or Wade to that for Thompson then I believe they would.

i think i like this trade.

Agree3 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 04:53:12
I like it for all teams. I think each is improved. Thunder may be a little wary however taking Asiks contract (it isn't that bad anymore but he'd likely get no minutes in that loaded frontcourt) and Evans is an expiring deal (could stay healthy last year too) and given his ball dominating, playmaking playstyle he may not be best fit. He could play sf tho and would be significantly better than anyone Thunder have.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 10:31:36
Too late to cut Ily, his contract is now guaranteed.

Milwaukee Bucks, Brooklyn Nets

Milwaukee gets Brook Lopez and Sean Kilpatrick

Brooklyn gets Monroe, MCW, and Vaughn

We already signed Novak and Terry and Xavier Henry to a camp deal then sign him to a contract

Middleton, Terry, Kilpatrick
Antetokounmpo, Teletovic, Novak
Parker, Henson, Henry
Lopez, Plumlee, Maker.

Terrible for the Nets. They'd want Middleton or Parker (Parker is worth more, but it's closer than Monroe and MCW) .

Umm Middleton or Parker? Lol.

31 Aug 2016 00:18:54
Lopez averaged 21 and 8, with a 21 PER and solid defense last year. He's played 70+ games in 3 of the last 4 years.

Middleton averaged 18/ 4/ 4 and a 16.8 PER.

How does NJ have nothing that is worth Middleton again?

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 02:36:41
Bmiller, also Lopez was the only good player on the Nets, Giannis and Middleton were both studs for the Bucks

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 05:02:39
I think Nets should keep Kilpatrick and Bucks should throw in a 1st and I like it. Lopez is one of best offensive bigs in the league but even though he has been healthy lately he still has a reputation for the foot injuries that plagued him earlier in his career. Being on a team like the Nets there can be an argument made that his stats are a little inflated. Additionally Nets aren't going anywhere with Lopez and just risk losing him to free agency soon in they don't deal him. It makes sense for them to deal him now and I don't think his value is much more than this offer with the slight adjustments I suggested. Monroe is no slouch and I think he could put up 20-10 on the nets easily. He is also younger than Lopez and has something to prove which could lead him to stay on a team like Nets (I think his best destination would be the trailblazers) .

Middleton plays a key role for the Bucks and what they'd gain by adding lopez doesn't match what they'd lose by trading middleton. Middleton gives them much needed shooting and his defensive ability gives them a lot of versatility. A young 3 and D guy on reasonable contract locked up long term is a valuable asset especially to a team built like the Bucks. They don't really need a center of the caliber of Lopez to be successful (obviously wouldn't hurt to have one) but they do need a player like Middleton.

CHI becomes the best team in the NBA for the next 3 years then (in a horrific landslide) becomes the worst. It'd be pretty cool to see this happen though.

Agree4 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 03:50:52
Bulls win this deal big time, though I kind of like the return for the Knicks. That's a lot of solid young pieces for an aging Melo. It's the Cleveland return that makes this so lopsided for the Bulls. Butler is a star, but he's not close to LBJ.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 05:06:59
One does not simply trade Lebron, especially for that offer. I don't think that is even close to getting Anthony either. That Bulls team would be good as a function of adding Lebron and Melo but I hate Wade and Rondo with them. Lopez is a solid piece but the lack of perimeter shooting outside of Melo would severely hurt this team.

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 15:39:24
LOL, you can like the return all you want triangle. We all know you are a bulls fan. And we all know the knicks get ripped here.

Melo is so aging that his contract has turned into rather acceptable with the cap boom, he just led the USA team to gold, and finished the year as a clear top 5 wing. (James, Durant, Leonard, Melo, George. no real argument that those 5 didn't have the top 5 sf years last year)

Knicks aren't trading the face of the franchise who clearly has a few more great years left for players absolutely not of need? They just signed Lee. So Valentine is stuck behind that for 4 years. They have Porzingis at the 4, so there goes Mirotic and Gibsons value.

Essentially, they trade for some rotational players and then have McDermott as their 3. That is awful.
