27 Aug 2014 21:23:02

Garnett, Blatche (ST)

Thompson, Haywood, Lucas, Murphy

With Love starting at PF, Thompson's minutes have been greatly reduced and I do not see the Cavs paying 6.7Mil next year for a player who will be coming off the bench. Having both KG and Blatche offers good help for the frontcourt for the Cavs

The Nets need to become younger players and having a developing player like Thompson is a start

succeed and proceed



27 Aug 2014 20:59:50

Hornets get David Lee and Caroll
Trade future for now

Warriors get Millsap, Henderson

27 Aug 2014 06:52:34
so the Denver just traded away their 4 starting line ups? wow. just wow.


^this starting lineup is way better


I like the idea of getting Faried, but paying McGee 11mil+ a year for 2 more years to be a backup center isn't smart. However maybe adding Boston into the mix and then sending McGee for Brandon Bass, Marcus Thorton, and a future 2nd rounder would make sense. We get out from McGee's contract, Bass would provide us a solid scorer and rebounder off the bench for more depth, and with Barnes traded, Thorton could provide some scoring off the wing that the Warriors would miss with Barnes gone. Also, the biggest thing is that those two players are expiring, allowing them to easily re-sign Klay, Green, and Faried, as well as probably bring in a solid role player with the full mid level again.




27 Aug 2014 00:06:43

Min trades chase Budinger, Barea 2nd round pick

Min receives Kyle Korver


Min trades pekovic

Den trades Javalee McGee


Min trades kevin Martin

Okc trades Perkins (exp) and 2015 1st

2015 team
Brewer/ Korver/ Muhammad
Young/ Bennett
McGee/ Dieng/ Perkins


Why would Atlanta give a fabulous role player for two bad contracts?




26 Aug 2014 23:29:45

Bulls get Kyle Korver

Hawks get Mike Dunleavy , 1st round pick


Bulls say no. McDermott will provide the 3pt speciast. Not worth a 1st




26 Aug 2014 18:29:34
PHX Suns have the assets. They have to use those assets to turn themselves into a real contender. They should bring players that could keep them out of mediocrity. They should chase some players with star potential , a little veteran help to lead them. Eric Bledsoe , Morris Twins , Archie Goodwin , even Miles Plumlee and their rookies are great trade baits for other teams they must pull some trades and stop thinking so much of potentials.


GS get Morris brothers , TJ Warren

PHX get David Lee , Harrison Barnes


PHX get Rajon Rondo , Tony Mitchell

BOS get Greg Monroe , Brandon Jennings , 2 2nd from Suns

DET get Eric Bledsoe , Jeff Green


PHX get Kyle Korver

ATL get Archie Goodwin , future 1st round pick

PHX Suns will be like this

Rajon Rondo / Isaiah Thomas / Tyler Ennis
Goran Dragic / Kyle Korver / Gerald Green
Harrison Barnes / PJ Tucker
David Lee / Anthony Tolliver / Shavlik Randolph
Miles Plumlee / Alex Len

if they could trade a package of Tucker or Green , a pick or Plumlee to get a better defensive center , it could be great but this I think PHX will be one of Western Elite.

Thay get Rondo, a champion , a veteran to teach Thomas , Ennis along with Hornacek to be a very good PG , they got Lee , the inside out presence they need and all of the players they get are well fitted to their style.


Goodwin isn't a great trade asset


So who are the stars Phoenix is getting?


Bledose has already turned down the same offer Detroit has given Monroe, so why would he sign it with Detroit? He won't this trade does nothing other then trade one contract head ache for another.


No way PHX would do this deal. if for no other reaosn, Rondo likely wouldn't re-sign & he's just not the guy the Suns need. Bledsoe is. but. who knows how that turns out?




26 Aug 2014 18:06:35

ATL get Nerlens Noel , Harrison Barnes


PHI get David Lee , 1st from GS


GS get Al Horford , J-Rich , Demarre Caroll



No way Philly trades Noël, especially for Lee and a pick.

GS accepts

Stephen Curry/Shuan Livingston/Aaron Craft
Klay Thompson/Brandon Rush
Andre Iguodala/Draymond Green
Paul Milsap/Mareese Speights
Andrew Bogut/Nikola Pekovic/Festus Ezeli


Only team that potentially declines is Atlanta because they acquire two bad contracts in Lee and Martin. Pretty solid trade though.


U think bogut would start over pekovic?


@kn1ck3erb0ck3r Bogut would most likely start because he's a much better defender and the Warriors starting five has enough offense. Pek would make for a great 6th man.


Yea that's true @rerur I think that GSW team would be tops in the west.


ATL would look like.

pg. rubio
sg. martin
sf. brewer
pf. lee
c. horford

pretty solid


20 Aug 2014 18:28:31
Min gives up pek, Rubio, brewer, Martin for only Teague Barnes and Korver? Hell no from mn


@tmoney. its called rebuilding that's why. they clear a lot of cap and get back young players. rubio brewer pek and martin obviously weren't working out. time to change things.


^yeah Bogut would definitely start over Pekovic. He's got more experience, is a better passer, and most importantly, is a top tier defender (unlike Pekovic who can't defend.) Before the past two years, GS sucked because they never had a good rim protector, which is why they traded their leading scorer (Monta Ellis) for a guy who was injured for the rest of that season, and into the next one.




19 Aug 2014 10:21:27

GS get Paul Milsap , Nic Batum

S. Curry / S. Livingston / N. Nedovic
K. Thompson / B. Rush
N. Batum / H. Barnes
P. Milsap / D. Green / M. Speights
A. Bogut / F. Ezeli / O. Kuzmic

POR get Andre Iguodala , Demarre Carroll , Jordan Crawford (st)

D. Lillard / S. Blake / C. McCollum
W. Matthews / J. Crawford / W. Barton
A. Iguodala / D. Caroll / D. Wright
L. Aldridge / T. Robinson
R. Lopez / C. Kaman / J. Freeland

ATL get David Lee , Allen Crabbe , 1st from Portland

J. Teague / S. Mack / D. Shroeder
K. Korver / K. Bazemore / J. Jenkins
T. Sefolosha / A. Crabbe
D. Lee / M. Scott / A. Payne
A. Horford / P. Antic / M. Muscala


Portland would need to give up more. GS would way rather have Iggy than Batum for his ball handling and defense, and while Milsap is an upgrade, he's not good enough to make this trade fair


Hah, I was going to say the exact opposite warriorsalltheway. Batum is similar to iggy but way younger, I'd take Batum any day over iggy.


Would love this trade for the Warriors.


Batum isn't an elite defender like Iggy, not as good a ballhandler, and not as good a passer, with not nearly as much experience, which is what they want


Batum averaged 4 more points, 3 more boards, one more assist and is 5 years younger. Iggy is on the wrong side of 30 and declining. You'd really rather have him over Batum?




17 Aug 2014 05:45:52

GS trades Harrison Barnes, 2015 1st round pick for Kenneth Faried.

DEN trades Kenneth Faried, Javelle McGee for Al Horford.

ATL trades Al Horford for Javelle McGee, Harrison Barnes, 2015 1st round pick.

Ty Lawson/Nate Robinson
Aaron Afflalo/Gary Harris/Randy Foye
Danillo Gallinari/Wilson Chandler
Al Horford/Darell Arthur
Timofey Mosgov/JJ Hickson/Jusuf Nurkic

Denver turns depth into better players. They could start Chandler instead of Mozgov and move Gallinari and Horford to the 4 and 5 if they wanted to.

Jeff Teague/Dennis Schroder/Shelvin Mack
Kyle Korver/Thabo Sefolosha/Kent Bazemore
Harrison Barnes/Mike Scott/Demmare Carrol
Paul Milsap/Adrien Payne/Elton Brand
Javelle McGee/Pero Antic/Mike Muscacula

Atlanta gets good deal for Horford, who could walk next year. They also add a pick, and Barnes and McGee both have good potential.

Stephen Curry/Shuan Livingston/Aaron Craft
Klay Thompson/Brandon Rush
Andre Iguodala/Draymond Green
David Lee/Kennneth Faried
Andrew Bogut/Mareese Speights/Festus Ezeli

Golden State gets good physical presence off of the bench, and good guy to step in if Bogut gets injured. They probably won't resign Faried unless he excepts the qualifying offer in hope of a championship, so this would be a 1-2 year rental just to make a push to the finals.


I don't understand why GS trades Barnes and a 1st for a bench player?


Barnes is a bench player too.


They (Barnes and Faried) should both start, but the warriors have a stacked front court so they are role players on contenders


Iggy is good but calling GSW front court "stacked" is laughable.


Currently Iggy, Barnes, Green, Lee, and Bogut sounds pretty stacked to me. No superstars, but a whole lot of good players.

Let's see, so Knicks do THJ, Bargs, and JR Smith for Horford? Yeah right


I don't see Indy trading Hibbert for that and I don't see Gasol signing in indy


A little late for April fools


Knicks aren't getting Horford for that crap.




15 Aug 2014 14:29:06
According to sources the reason Monroe has not signed an extension is four reasons.!. He was in Africa and out of touch playing with Basketball with No Borders. 2. He doesn't want to play with Smith and Jennings doesn't like their attitude. 3. He is tired of losing the the losing culture and wants a change. 4. the contract offer to Monroe was less then Smith and if the Pistons think he is a building block then why offer him less? Monroe was upset with this and his agent wants him to make more then Smith.
Now he will sign an extension if Smith and Jennings were not here and he is offered $60 million over 5 years. Baring a trade he will sign the one year and be an unrestricted FA.
If he signs a one year Detroit should look to trade him the potential landing spots are Atlanta (Milsap and Korver), Oklahoma City (this would be hard Detroit doesn't want PG's or SG's and other then starters they have nothing to trade) and Portland (Batum and a draft pick). These are the true current rumors.
Gut feeling Monroe signs the one year and they try to trade Smith and Jennings at the trade deadline and sign Monroe to a long term extension during the season.


Portland wouldn't trade Batum for Monroe, and if Monroe took the QO the salaries wouldn't be close.


I said that Portland wouldn't make the trade and I also said that at the trade deadline the Pistons are going to look to move Smith and Jennings.

ok how about this
spurs and hawks

HAWKS GET-Vucevic Nicholson B.Gordon future 1st




12 Aug 2014 19:08:49
Bledsoe (S&T 5 yrs $70M, $56M guaranteed)

Gets young, star caliber PG, partial guarantee to give some insurance against his health, backup young PG, SF, & C.

PG: Bledsoe/Augustine/Schroeder
SG: KCP/Meeks
SF: Butler/Carroll/Singler
PF: Smith/Mitchell/Jerebko
C: Drummond/Muscala


Gets a cheaper backcourt mate for Dragic (although not as high of a ceiling) and an all star stretch 4.

PG: Dragic/Thomas
SG: Jennings/Green
SF: Tucker/Warren
PF: Milsap/Morris
C: Plumlee/Len

Monroe (S&T 4 yrs $48M)
Markieff Morris

Gets young talented C and finally can move Horford to PF, and a nice young player in Morris for added depth

PG: Teague/Mack
SG: Sefolosha/Jenkins
SF: Korver/Morris
PF: Horford/Payne
C: Monroe/Antic


So, PHX gives up Bledsoe AND Morris. for a "me-first" mini guard & an aging Millsap? No way & no thanks. Why not just take PHX out of it. and try it with just ATL & DET?


Bledsoe has already turned down the same offer that has been made to Monroe doubt he accepts it in Detroit. Not sure this trade helps Detroit.


The relationship with Bledsoe is apparently breaking down and he's unhappy there. Milsap just turned 29, it's not as if he's got 1 foot in the grave. He's an all star and PHX will perpetually be at best an 8 seed in the west if they don't get some more talent there, especially at the PF position. Jennings is a solid player, not as high of a ceiling as Bledsoe, but he also doesn't have the injury history Bledsoe has. You constantly overvalue Suns players in here. Markieff is a solid player who provides a lot off the bench, he'll never reach the talent of Milsap though.

Bledsoe has turned down 4 yr/$48M, this would give him at least an extra $8M, possibly $22M if he stays healthy and DET picks up the team option for the 5th year


The MEIA is saying the relationship between Bledsoe's agent & PHX has soured. might be true. might not. Millsap might be 29. but the Suns want to run. he doesn't. Suns already have a pint sized G in Thomas. they certainly don't need another one. so, this is a no-go for PHX. Kieff knows the Suns system. and how to work within it.
