Fire Doc Rivers
Sign and trade Blake Griffin, Crawford to Denver for Faried, Barton, Chandler, 2018 1st.
24 Feb 2017 20:52:35
No need for Denver to make this deal as they'll have enough money this offseason to sign Blake anyways.
24 Feb 2017 22:38:40
Although Nuggets have enough money to sign Griffin he may only want to do a sign and trade so that he can make more money (Clips can offer him more than any other team) .
I'm not sure how realistic that scenario is especially since if Griffin were to choose the Nuggets over the Clippers he probably wouldn't want them depleting a significant amount of their talent to get him.
25 Feb 2017 00:57:57
I'm still stuck @ Fire Doc Rivers.
25 Feb 2017 01:50:35
I've never understood why people think S&T like this would ever happen. The nuggets wouldn't give up this much, never. And griffin wouldn't want them to. If he's going there. He wants the best team possible around him.

NYK- Chris Paul
LAC- Courtney Lee, 2017 6th pick.
NYK- Dwayne Wade
CHI- Wesley Matthews, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, 2019 NYK 1st (top 5 protected)
DAL- Joakim Noah, 2018 CHI 2nd
PG- Chris Paul
SG- Malik Monk
SF- Carmelo Anthony/Lance Thomas
PF- Kristaps Porzingis/Kyle O'Quinn
C- Joakim Noah/Willy Hernangomez
24 Feb 2017 17:09:27
Why woul Dallas do this?
They can take bad contracts and rebuilt, but give them atleast the NY pick (unprotected) and Kuzminskas
And why would NY give anything for D Wade? He can become a free agent and they shouldn't trade him if he asked 25 Million.
And they should only trade for CP3 without a sign and trade. They need this years pick get a talented young player.
24 Feb 2017 17:11:03
you traded Noah and your 2017 1st, they shouldn't be in the lineup.
24 Feb 2017 19:19:07
Sorry meant Wade not Monk.
24 Feb 2017 19:26:10
This is garbage.
24 Feb 2017 20:55:52
No interest from Dallas in Noah, actually, no interest in Noah by anyone who isn't that moron Phil Jackson.
If the Knicks are looking at building around Zinger, why would the Knicks give up younger assets (picks, Kuz) for two older players who are just starting to decline. Instead of one Melo, now you have three.
24 Feb 2017 16:37:40

24 Feb 2017 19:30:08

25 Feb 2017 01:01:34
Change that Brooklyn pick to 19 LAC pick and J Young.
25 Feb 2017 04:41:02
First. Ou are officially the worst poster.
Second. Sign and trade for the 1st overall pick? Seriously?
24 Feb 2017 02:19:06
NOLA sign Gordon Hayward to max
resign Jrue Holiday
24 Feb 2017 04:28:18
There is still a salary cap next year. That starting lineup is $100mm by itself.
24 Feb 2017 16:01:06
Largely the reason cousins and Davis may not be a matcch made in heaven. So much invested in two big men. They have like 30 million for the other 10 guys.
24 Feb 2017 16:11:49
The 2017-2018 cap is between 122 and 127 million. That leaves more than 30 million for 10 guys. But they need to find a Wing threat combo guard. I don't think Heyward at a Max contract is necessary though.
24 Feb 2017 16:36:48
Actual Salary Cap for 2017-18 is 102 million, Luxury-Tax-Line is set at 122 million, down from 127 million.
24 Feb 2017 17:24:13
My bad. You are right billj.
24 Feb 2017 17:49:07
The salary cap only becomes an issue for Pelicans if they aren't willing to go into the luxury tax. If they aren't willing to do this the Cousins trade was awfully short-sighted. With his bird rights they can sign him after signing other free agents. Also, max contracts are limited by a percentage of the salary cap. Davis since he didn't match Rose-rule criteria is "only" 25% and Cousins will be 30% since he will have over 7 years experience.
The Miami Heat were able to win championships with 3 max contracts that at their worst took up over 95% of salary cap. Having two max contracts definitely limits what they can do going forward and they won't have much flexibility but of the guys to give max contracts to there aren't very many I'd prefer over Cousins and Davis. I think they'll be a solid fit together and so long as they can keep a competent point guard (I think Holiday is sufficient) and can get some pieces that can shoot 3's or play good perimeter defense (ideally both but that is hard to find) they should be a competitive team in the Western conference for awhile especially since their big man duo will be a matchup problem every night.
24 Feb 2017 18:09:09
@Jaw457 The owner of the Pels/ Saints is nearing 90 years old. I can see them going over the line. They need a SG/ SF 3 and D guy to add to Holiday, Cousins, Davis.
24 Feb 2017 21:01:48
guys, Pels already have almost $88M is guaranteed salary next year, they won't have the money to sign anything more than a middling player anyways.
25 Feb 2017 01:06:24
I can honestly see them trading Boogie this time next year for 3 times what they gave up. Brilliant move by the Pels.
25 Feb 2017 01:09:48
And for whoever disagreed, if your looking for your glasses try looking on your head.
25 Feb 2017 04:42:42
Great move if they trade him. Otherwise they will be screwed for having 2 super max players. Even if dacman will incorrectly disagree.
23 Feb 2017 23:22:21
Cavs sign Williams and sanders
Cavs sign bogut if waived
Cavs waive McRae and liggins

24 Feb 2017 05:01:40

24 Feb 2017 10:08:30
Don't waive Liggins. He's a good rollplayer.
23 Feb 2017 19:12:36
Thunder get: doug mgdermout gibson
bulls get: payne syngler roberson 2nd round pick
23 Feb 2017 19:18:30
plz share what u think of this trade above.
23 Feb 2017 20:02:36
Great trade for the thunder. Personally think that okc got the best two players.
23 Feb 2017 20:37:19
Another well executed trade by okc. Payne is trash and they got value in return while someone thinks he still has potential.
23 Feb 2017 19:08:16
Milwaukee sends Pf/C Henson
Phoenix sends PG/SG Knight
The Suns get their rim protector
The Bucks get their Combo PG/SG back
Milwaukee sends PG Dellavedova
NO sends PF Jones, and a 2nd rd. pick
Milw. gets their needed PF (Parker )
NO gets their PG/SG they lost in Cousins trade.
23 Feb 2017 18:48:06
The Philadelphia dump gets: Bryan Colangelo,Jerry Colangelo, philly ownership group
Sixers get: Sam Hinkie
23 Feb 2017 19:15:54
Colangelo needs to go he sucks he would've done better by doing nothing
23 Feb 2017 20:32:22
Hate this gm.
23 Feb 2017 22:02:19
Anyone who thinks Hinkie did a good job, You're clueless to no end. Any bum off the street can tear down a team and lose! Hinkie is where he should be, NBA unemployed.
23 Feb 2017 23:44:48
To look at the sixers team now versus when hinkie got there and not think they are in a better position is beyond crazy. People that didnt/ still can't see that have no foresight. When I say "better position". I'm talking about to win a championship, which is what this, atleast to myself is all about. Teams like Washington, Houston, hawks, bulls, grizzlies etc. are content in getting a decent seed in the playoffs every year and then being 1st or 2nd round knockouts. And if that's what you want as a fan then fine, but myself and I hope most would like the opportunity to root for a championship team.
There is only around 4-6 teams every year that have a remote chance at winning the trophy. That's a fact. To be in that group you need to have the best players. That's a fact. All the best players today are looking to play with other really good players once they reach free agency to have a chance to win the trophy. That's a fact. There are also certain locations, city-wise, that can draw players (LA, MIAMI, newyork etc) for obvious reasons. That's a fact. So unless you get these guys through the draft, I would guess that atleast 60 percent of the teams in the league have no chance of winning a championship anytime soon.
Hinkie was taking the only viable way of building a champion based on the current rules in a city that isn't one of those city's that would attract the top guys.
Look at all the high picks (and players) the guy has accumulated versus what has actually been traded away and anyone with half a brain can see that he was a winner in literally every trade that he has ever done as the sixers gm.
Who's your team ECL? let's compare.
24 Feb 2017 00:40:24
I'm disgusted by the return for Noel. Coangelo basically got Anderson and 2 2nds. Disgusted. Hinkie 2.0 basically.
24 Feb 2017 01:17:33
Any bum could of gotten a 2nd rounder for illy and Noel. Even the kings gm.
24 Feb 2017 05:04:49
Worst think Hinkie did was draft Okafor.
23 Feb 2017 18:10:30
