22 Aug 2016 08:02:24

ATL get Tobias Harris, 1st rd pick and 2nd rd pick

DET get Paul Millsap

i think this could really work for both teams. Millsap is the glue guy this young DET team needs while ATL need to start piling up young talents on their roster. I think if they do good, Millsap could return to DET for 2-3 final years of his prime.

22 Aug 2016 08:44:24
I kind of like it for Pistons as they aren't giving up an awful lot although realistically not sure Millsap gets this team over the hump. Also, I agree hawks should rebuild although after getting Howard to replace Horford and losing Teague they shouldn't be that bad and will still be a playoff team so idk how willing they'd be to part with Millsap.

Personally I think Millsap would be a much better fit for Toronto who are a team more built to win now than Pistons and could use a player of his ability. I also think they could offer a semi attractive offer centered around Carroll (he had best years in ATL so maybe they'd want him back) and Ross or maybe younger guys like Poeltl and Powell.

22 Aug 2016 10:01:49
The Hawks shouldn't trade Millsap and give the combo D12/ Millsap a chance.
But Millsap would be a great fit in Detroit.

20 Aug 2016 05:34:07
Do you think Pistons would target Milsap?

Stanley Johnson and Marcus Morris or Harris for Milsap and THJ?

Or Morris/ Harris and 2 first for Milsap?

Jackson-KCP-Harris/ Morris-Milsap-Drummond could make a serious run.

The Hawks rebuild with Johnson and Harris or Morris are still young on decent contracts. Not sure if Pistons would give up Johnson though.

20 Aug 2016 05:41:40
I feel like Pistons should keep their core because they'd lose depth if they did this. They have a good young core that fits well together so they should keep it.

20 Aug 2016 08:15:44
I think Harris and a 1st is a start Hawks could go younger while Pistons seems looking to compete now and a vet like Millsap could really help.

19 Aug 2016 08:07:40

ATL get Batum and Olynyk

CHA get Korver, BKN 1st 2018

BOS get Millsap.

19 Aug 2016 09:43:00
Boston is giving up to much.
Millsap is a great Pf, but he's 31 years old.
Boston has a good team and Millsap won't give them a title, so why rush?

19 Aug 2016 12:07:17
By the time the Celtics are ready to make a legit title push (a few years from now), Millsap will be heading toward his mid-30s. Might do Olynyk and a No. 2, but no more -- and definitely not one of the Brooklyn picks.

19 Aug 2016 12:09:26
The Brooklyn picks are available, I'm sure, but only IN A PACKAGE for an elite player. Millsap doesn't make that cut.

19 Aug 2016 12:28:10
In a few years eh? So after horfords prime? So why did they sign him?

19 Aug 2016 14:54:47
Not to mention in a few years they could have some trouble keeping their team together. Thomas, Bradley, crowder, and smart will all demand lots of $$$.

20 Aug 2016 01:31:15
I don't give up the potential number pick in the draft for a guy in the last year of his contract. I like the fit, but Crowder and the C's pick seems a little more reasonable.

17 Aug 2016 19:25:10
Pelicans final Move

Pelicans - Tiago Splitter

Hawks - Tyrke Evans, Dante Cunningham

Sign Mario Chalmers to a 1 yr deal


PG - Holiday - Chalmers - Frazier
SG - Hield - Galloway - Moore
SF - Hill - Pondexter - Copeland
PF - Davis - Jones - Diallo
C - Asik - Splitter - Aijanca.

19 Aug 2016 14:58:07
There is NO way Pelicans would trade AD, especially for what you offered. A bunch of mid tier at best Players and a couple pick? nooooo thanks.

17 Aug 2016 07:38:27

OKC get Paul Millsap and Ben McLemore

Pg Westbrook/ Chalmers (sign) / Price
Sg Oladipo/ McLemore/ Morrow
Sf Roberson/ Singler
Pf Millsap/ Mcgary
Ce Adams/ Kanter

ATL get Rudy Gay, Domantas Sabonis and Ersan Ilyasova

Pg Shroeder/ Jack
Sg Bazemore/ Korver
Sf Gay/ Sefolosha/ Prince
Pf Ilyasova/ Sabonis/ Scott
Ce Howard/ Splitter/ Muscala

SAC get Cameron Payne, THJ and 1st rd pick OKC and 2nd rd pick ATL

Pg Collison/ Payne
Sg Afflalo/ THJ/ Temple
Sf Casspi/ Barnes
Pf Cousins/ Skal/ Papa
Ce WCS/ Koufos.

17 Aug 2016 14:40:27
You even forgot Abrines on OKC, so that team would be pretty decent.

17 Aug 2016 15:41:28
Sacramento is getting way too much. They're basically trying to give gay away, and no one really wants him. And I think Mclemore could be gotten without giving up a first rounder.

I'm not sure why Sacramento wouldn't just be cut out of this deal if Atlanta is going to deal milsap to OKC.

16 Aug 2016 16:19:50

TOR recieves Paul Millsap

ATL recieves Jakob Poeltl, Terrence Ross, TOR 2017 first round pick, and maybe TOR 2018 1st round pick

I think that this trade would benefit both teams because Paul Millsap would probably leave Atlanta at the end of the 2017 season and if the Raptors were to get Millsap, he would be very helpful for a playoff run and he'd most likely re-sign.


Korver-Hardaway Jr.

16 Aug 2016 16:37:03
one draft pick will do in my opinion?

16 Aug 2016 18:01:30
@Tom tom yeah that's what I was thinking.

16 Aug 2016 20:40:40
Hawks just signed Dwight so probably wouldn't have any interest in Poetl.

17 Aug 2016 12:59:56
Poetl is essentially getting another 1st rounder anyway, so I think just the 2017 would work.

18 Aug 2016 03:03:12
Can't trade two consecutive years of picks anyways, so that's a moot point in the deal.

Eliminate the 2018 pick and I'm in on this one.

16 Aug 2016 09:17:08

MIN get Kyle Korver, right to a rookie and 2nd rd pick

ATL get Shabbaz Muhammad and Nemanja Bjelica

Korver can help the young Wolves team with his shooting. he can start or come off the bench

Hawks get a young wing and a stretch 4 that could fit them.

16 Aug 2016 16:33:46
Korver is already 35, not trading young players for a guy who definitely won't be here next year.

16 Aug 2016 02:40:02
Atlanta Hawks Receive: SF/ PF Wilson Chandler, PF Kenneth Faried, SG Gary Harris

Denver Nuggets Receive: PF Paul Millsap, SG/ SF Thabo Sefolosha

Schroder/ Jack
Harris/ Korver
Prince/ Bembry
Chandler/ Faried
Dwight/ Splitter

Mudiay/ Nelson
Murray/ Barton
Gallo/ Thabo
Millsap/ Arthur
Jokic/ Nurkic

Denver can make a sneaky push for the playoffs, Millsap and Jokic would be a terrific combination both offensively and defensively. Atlanta get more pieces for a Millsap expiring.

16 Aug 2016 04:34:28
Bazemore starting at the 3.

16 Aug 2016 04:52:03
Why would DEN do that? they have a deep line up if they grow together. That's too much to give for an expiring contract.

17 Aug 2016 16:02:53
I would do that under the consideration that he sign a long term deal. I think he would.

11 Aug 2016 15:45:46
I think this is a deal


MIL get Korver

SAC get MCW and lottery protected 1st ATL

ATL get Gay and 2nd MIL.

11 Aug 2016 16:29:20
Sac not getting enough for Gay but they do want him gone.

11 Aug 2016 16:41:03
Korver is too old for the Bucks.

11 Aug 2016 23:30:33
The salaried don't work

11 Aug 2016 02:46:09
Interesting 3 team trade if GSW situation don't work out

GSW gets - Gasol, Korver, An. Harrison, and Mem 1st

Atl gets - Adams Looney and Martin

Mem gets - Thompson and Splitter

Curry - Livingston - Harrison
Korver - McGraw - Clark
Durant - Iggy
Green - West
Gasol - Pachuilla

Scherdor - Jack
Sefolosha - Adams - Bembry
Bazemore - Prince
Milsap - Looney - Martin
Howard - Humprhies

Conley - Baldwin - Wroten
Thompson - Allen
Parsons - Carter
ZBo - Davis
Splitter - Wright.

11 Aug 2016 05:44:44
gs willnt trade Thompson only if Thompson request a trade. I agree with you can Thompson play in the shadows of curry and durant then we will c is this team full of egos are true to there word we play unselfishly as a team. over are under 73?

11 Aug 2016 13:38:00
I do like the idea of gasol as a better version of Bogut, and korver replacing Thompson's shooting. It is interesting.

11 Aug 2016 14:24:46
U believe Korver is better than Thompson really.

11 Aug 2016 14:35:33
Thompson is fine playing in the shadows, just rematch the 2015 finals if you don't believe me.

11 Aug 2016 15:02:39

11 Aug 2016 16:27:29
Who said korver is better than Thompson?

09 Aug 2016 15:00:33
Wizards - Hawks
(If Hawks admit to not being a championship caliber team)

Wizards send: Morris, Otto Porter/ Oubre Jr, 1st Round Pick
Hawks send: Paul Milsap.

09 Aug 2016 17:52:04
That's a little bit overpay for an expiring contract. Maybe Morris and Porter?

09 Aug 2016 09:37:10
I like this one for both teams


Paul millsap for Kevin Love.

09 Aug 2016 10:42:03
Milsap is better than Love. So Cavs need to add something. Maybe Mo. Williams.

09 Aug 2016 10:56:24
But he only has 1 yr left of contract.

09 Aug 2016 12:56:04
I think Atlanta would need to add a sweentner.

09 Aug 2016 13:09:59
Millsap is so old though. It makes sense for both teams. Millsap is better then love but his age drops his value s bit in my book. So a straight up trade makes some sense.

09 Aug 2016 13:49:00
Also love pair's up better with Dwight.

09 Aug 2016 13:57:40
Toss in Korver and some filler back to Atlanta.

Just because the trade makes sense directionally doesn't mean the Cavs will be shortchanged on value.

09 Aug 2016 14:37:29
By the time millsaps age comes into play love's contract will be just about over and he'll leave. I don't think it should be taken too much into account.

Millsap has never been to swift of food anyway so I could see him playing effectively into his mid 30's.

09 Aug 2016 14:59:21
I'll throw in THJ...

08 Aug 2016 14:54:54
Atlanta gets bledsoe pj tucker tj Warren
Phoenix gets hardaway jr milsap

for me Atlanta always has been missing defense and an athlete on the wing both teams fill spots I think Atlanta could flip korver for a power foward or keep him as a 6th man shooter
pj tucker
that's a line up that can defend run if Bledsoe comes back to form then you have a he'll of a area


Phoenix finally gets another star a guy who fits perfect on the team and they have a jump on resigning milsap.

09 Aug 2016 00:11:19
I think that is way too much for Millsap especially since he is an expiring contract. He also makes no sense for the Suns to go after considering they just drafted two guys who play his position and they are a young team that should be focused on developing their two lottery picks and not trading considerable assets for a guy who would play 1 year with them put real good numbers up and leave for a better team in free agency.

04 Aug 2016 18:55:07
SAC blow up


ATL get: Demarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, and MCW

pg. MCW
sg. Bazemore
sf. Gay
pf. Cousins
c. Howard

SAC get: Jabari Parker, Greg Monroe, Dennis Schroeder, Rashard Vaughn and 2017 1st DP ATL

pg. Schroeder
sg. Afflalo
sf. Barnes
pf. Parker
c. Monroe

MIL get: Paul Milsap, Kyle Korver, Ben McLemore, and WCS

pg. Giannis
sg. Korver
sf. Middleton
pf. Milsap
c. WCS.

04 Aug 2016 22:09:54
No Cousins and Howard would be a mess together. Also Cousins is more of a Center anyways.

04 Aug 2016 23:21:06
Kings not getting enough.

04 Aug 2016 00:03:53
Atl - MIL

ATL trades
Future first

MIL trades

04 Aug 2016 01:00:31
Bucks say no, doesn't make sense to get rid of two young studs for an old stud, when your team is revolved around young guys and the future.... Middleton and Jabari are two of the three core guys.

04 Aug 2016 01:26:08
Bucks won't trade Middelton and Parker for a could-be rental.

04 Aug 2016 02:20:19
Even if not a rental. He doesn't have near that value.

03 Aug 2016 11:24:49
Hawks if they were to trade Paul Millsap, which trade would be the best?

Trade #1.Hawks/ Magic

Hawks get: Serge Ibaka and a 2nd round pick
(Ibaka is kind of like Al Horford was but actually plays PF and can still block shots and be a stretch 4 he isn't better then Millsap but he would fit better with Dwight and he is a little younger)
Magic gets: Paul Millsap
(Magic would get a good veteran who can do a little bit of everything and be a leader on a young team that's rebuilding)

Trade #2 Hawks/ Nuggets

Hawks get: Keneth Feried, Dorrell Arthur and Gary Harris
(Hawks get a great rebound/ hustle guy in Faried and may even develop a jump shot with the Hawks coaching staff, they also get a veteran PF off the bench in Arthur who can shoot the 3 and a young shooting guard Gary Harris, who could grow in this system. )

Nuggets get: Paul Millsap, THJ and Mike Muscala
(Nuggets who are also kind of rebuilding, would again get a nice veteran player that does everything to lead that young team, they get a still young shooting guard off the bench and a nice role player in Muscala

Trade #3 Hawks/ Jazs

Hawks get: Derrick Favors, Alec Burks
(with Trey Lyles emerging in Utah, Favors could be traded soon he would be a nice fit with Dwight and can shoot a nice 15 ft jump shot, block and rebound. They also get a young guard who can start or come off the bench. )

Jazz gets: Paul Millsap, THJ
(Jazz would get Paul Millsap back and potentially be a playoff team in the western conference, would fit nicely with Gobert, Hayward, Hood and the former Hawk legend Shelvin Mack, or and there's Joe Johnson. )

These aren't in my order or anything I just typed them down whenever they came into my head. I know it's a lot but I'm bored and it's late. I like the Jazz trade the best but I personally don't want Millsap traded but you never know anything can happen. What do y'all think? Trade 1, 2 or 3.

03 Aug 2016 11:39:50
i can't see any team doing this.
Millsap is a great player, but he's 31 years old. So why would those team trade younger players for him.

Only contenders or teams that will clear capspace next year will trade for him.

I also think he's a good combo with D12, so why trade him? They will never get equal value for him.

04 Aug 2016 04:50:31
31 is not that old like why is everyone saying that people usually start diminishing at around 35. Mills has a lot of heart and plays hard every game. He avgs 18 pts 9 rebs leads PF in steals other then Draymond I think. He has actually gotten better since he was at Utah. Also I said I personally don't want him traded but his name has been floating around for a while now.

05 Aug 2016 16:53:34
I actually love this trade. Would love it in Denver but maybe they would not want two 4's instead Harris, Fareid and Joffrey.

02 Aug 2016 20:51:37

Sixers trade covington to hawks

Phoenix trade bledsoe to philly

Pg bledsoe, bayless, rodriguez, mcconell

Pf simmons, saric
C embiid, okafor, holmes

Sixers keep okafor :)

Sixers make playoffs.

27 Jul 2016 15:41:19
Lakers say yes in a second. Sixers should start Okafor over Embiid this year.

27 Jul 2016 16:10:50
Dont see the suns making that move.

Also, that team isn't a playoff team. Bledsoe is a season ending knee injury waiting to happen. And he also has not led a team to the playoff.

Henderson is a backup guard at this point. Korver is old as balls, terrible defense, and is a one-trick pony, and his one-trick wasn't elite last ear.

Beyond that you have 2 rookie big men. I would absolutely think last years wolves were as good, if not better, than that proposed sixers team. And that wolves team was the 5th worst in the league.

So yeah. not likely.

27 Jul 2016 16:35:13
I would try to get JJ Redick before Korver. 3 years younger and this is his contract year, same as Korver. Now if you had both those guys hanging out behind the arc, it would certainly open up the lane for Jah and Joel to work with Ben. Bayless also had a high 3 pt % last season.

27 Jul 2016 16:43:05
Here one for the Celtics

Celtics Blake Griffin Russell Westbrook
Thunder Isiah Thomas 2017 1st round via celtics 2017 1st round via clippers
ClippersJae crowder nets pick mitch Mcgary and thunder 2017 2nd round.

27 Jul 2016 17:02:05
Suns trade makes sense for the Sixers but not so the Suns. Maybe knight for Noel would work.

The rest do not. Covington for an old korver seems like a waste.

Lou Williams still has value but not here in philly. Rather keep the young guy.

27 Jul 2016 17:45:16
Boston is pretty much on record as not giving up any significant assets without a commitment from the incoming player (s) .

27 Jul 2016 19:23:23
"pretty much on record" is the same as citing an anonymous source.

well played.

27 Jul 2016 23:20:38
Atlanta says no to Covington, he's to streaky. Korver had a bad year but still managed to shoot 39% from deep. Korver will be much better this year because he'll be healthier.

28 Jul 2016 13:32:24

Korver is too old now (35). Never could defend. He's a role player off the bench at best. I'm saying guys like him don't get better with age.

28 Jul 2016 14:29:56
echoing tre. covington is "streaky" but yet just about at the same 3pt% as korver. The thing is, covington can play d and is FAR younger.

39% doesn't cut it for a player that literally brings nothing else to the table. He had worth solely because he was an elite 3pt shooter, making in the mid to high 40%. This dip just brings him to good, not great, levels. he's getting old, getting even slower, and his one trick is fading. He has rapidly diminishing value.

28 Jul 2016 23:08:10
Hamburger and TreGib you both make valid points. I was just saying Korver shooting 39% was a down year considering he couldn't do his usual shooting routine last summer due to rehabilitating his knee and elbow injuries. Yes Korver is old but he'll shoot a higher percentage this year with Schroeder and Howard playing the pick and roll game.

29 Jul 2016 13:58:51
Trw I'm not sure Korver even plays with those two this year. he's a bench player due to limitation on defense and his speed in general.

27 Jul 2016 05:19:19
Clippers trade - Griffen
Hornets trade - MKG
Hawks trade - Milsap (s&t) Bembry and Korver

27 Jul 2016 06:28:37
Don't take this the wrong way NBA 16 because we're all entitled to our own opinion but suggesting we trade Milsap for Griffin has to be one of the most baffling things I've ever heard. Howard and Griffin would be a terrible fit together. Paul Millsap is a complete power forward, he may not have the big name but he sure has the game. Millsap is the best power forward in the eastern conference.

27 Jul 2016 06:32:29
I understand where you're coming from. My main reason for this trade is to find the clippers a small forward that they've been lacking for years.

27 Jul 2016 07:58:43
Why would Griffin and Howard be a terrible fit? isn't howard a lot like deandre? Griffin still better than Millsap.

27 Jul 2016 08:15:04
i do agree Millsap is a better fit.
But Griffin can still become a more complete player. In that case, he's younger and better than Millsap.
so i don't know.
I still think, i would prefer Millsap over Griffin in Atlanta.

27 Jul 2016 16:23:00
Millsap is a FA next summer, so the Hawks have 3 options: keep him this season and then pay him max money from ages 32-36, keep him this season and lose him for nothing next offseason, or trade him for value. I would consider Griffin great value and that front court with Schroder and Bazemore could be pretty solid. They could also attract some bigger FAs. I like the deal for Atlanta.

27 Jul 2016 23:15:24
I think griffin can opt out after this season, I might be wrong though. The Clippers played much better as a team when Griffin was hurt. I believe they need a stretch four type power forward who will unclog the lane for CP3 and give Jordan more room to operate. Griffins jumper has improved but he's still that back to the basket guy who seldoms take people off the dribble.
