Suns acquire: 6th pick

This will give the Suns another top 10 pick in a stacked class meaning they could fill the void at potentially two positions. The Suns would have the chance to draft Deandre Ayton with the 1st overall pick and also draft Michael Porter Jr. or Jaren Jackson Jr. This move would either solidify the front court with Jackson Jr. or add another scoring and lengthy wing in Porter Jr. If they do not want to take this route they can always select a point guard such as Collin Sexton to be a slashing point guard with some Russell Westbrook traits in him. Although it might be a reach to take a point guard that early, Sexton is a pretty safe pick due to his durability and all around skill.

Bulls Aquire: 15th pick, T.J Warren, Marquese Chriss

The Bulls trade down in order to gather more young role players and talent. They also get another lotto pick to gain another player in a stacked class.

19 Apr 2018 18:22:55
Why would the Bulls want role players over getting a potential star player?

19 Apr 2018 18:28:33
In don't think the value is bad, but the Bulls have a nice young team with 3 of their future starters already in Dunn, Lavine, and Markannen and 2 young solid role players that can be starters in the right situation in Nwaba. They really need to add another player with allstar potential to that group (I think Markannen and Lavine both have allstar potential) . I think Porter, Bagley, Young or Bamba all have that potential. It's doubtful that the 15th pick or either player they're getting back does. Warren shown he can score on a bad team, but hasn't shown much more than that and Chriss didn't show much, if any improvement, after a fairly disappointing rookie year.

19 Apr 2018 19:58:22
Rkenne what were you watching? Chriss had a disappointing rookie year? He had a great rookie year. Coming out he was a project you they said would take 3 to 4 years to get any significant playing time. He did take a step back this year, but once he got in shape played better. I find it funny how people use the excuse a guy scor3d on a bad team. It's harder to score on a bad team then a good team. On a good team you got other players to attract the def. On a bad team you get double team a lot.

19 Apr 2018 20:01:26
The drop off this year from 6-15 talent wise is too asppreciable.

20 Apr 2018 00:19:00
Jdp, I know that Chriss was kind of raw coming out, but I don't think anyone ever said he wouldn't play his first 4 years in the league. He wasn't good in anyway his 1st year, which again was fine because he is raw, but then he didn't really show any improvement in his 2nd year. If he does the same next year, his career is in serious jeopardy. Also, a lot of players on bad teams are playing more minutes, they get to be the focus of the offense more and they are getting more shots than they deserve. They're getting to play a ton more minutes against back ups and teams that don't care on defense because good teams don't have to be focused to beat them. Most players seed a dip in their scoring average when going from a bad team to a good team.

19 Apr 2018 07:07:55
that is way, way too much for kevin love.
and the 2nd trade would be more fair if hill was the one being packaged with assets.
and that pick trade with chi is lopsided too.
smith and robinson will likely be gone by those stages of the draft also.
but nice try trying to danny ainge a chest of draft picks.

19 Apr 2018 12:25:40
If Minnesota wanted Hill, they would have signed him last year instead of Teague.

18 Apr 2018 18:38:40
Chicago Bulls Offseason:


Draft Either Bamba or MPJ with our 6th pick (would rather take a chance on high ceiling player and have a bust than pick an nba ready talent and be mediocre for years *cough* McDermott/Tyrus Thomas *cough*)

Draft Khyri Thomas or Mitchell Robinson with our 22nd pick


Resign Lavine

Add a vet for presence and/or need:

Richard Jefferson or Joe Johnson


Assuming our pick(#6) turns out well, go for a big name in the 2019 free agency (Melo, PG13, Dwight Howard, Deandre Jordan, Kemba) while also filling out the bench. Then, trade our pick and Bobby Portis for a solid starter.

Assuming our pick does not turn out well, trade up in the 2019 nba draft for RJ Barrett (Only untouchable is Lauri tbh).

For the 2019/20 season rinse repeat.

Here's to hoping MPJ/Bamba turns into Durant/Gobert respectively

18 Apr 2018 19:29:24
all working toward the ultimate goal of AD choosing to come home.

19 Apr 2018 13:57:30
I think you need to trim that free agent list significantly. pretty much down to two. PG13 isn't going to go to Chicago, even though the pitch must be made, so I'd take him off as unrealistic. Melo and Howard shouldn't be guys you want on that team. They'd be more negative than positive additions. Kemba and Jordan, however might be convinced to come in. I think Dunn can be a good player, but I don't think he'll ever be a star, so Kemba is a great fit. If they pick Bamba, I don't know how much money I'd throw at Jordan, but he could be a really good mentor. If they draft Porter the positional fit is a non issue.

Overall, it's a really solid plan.

18 Apr 2018 04:55:11
Noah comeback season starts with a little faith by management. Than loosing 15 lbs to start at center. It seems like long shot from happening but with Porzingis out until 2019 and Kanter considering opting out, no other option. Hopefully ny native Bamba falls to 9th or or knicks get higher pick to land him. Eventually playing Noah will restore some value to trade him at trading deadline

Hardaway Mudiay for Mathews Barea
Lee Thomas for Bayless Korkmaz Anderson Cabarrot

18 Apr 2018 14:15:35
How is that Knicks team any better than it is now? Dotson starting at the 3? TLC at the 2?

Also, it ain't going to happen for Noah. The 15 pounds are not the issue, it's that he's past his prime.

18 Apr 2018 15:33:28
Noah is never going to be a starting player in the league again. He just doesn't have it in him physically. What he can do, is become a solid low minute bench player who comes in and wreaks havoc for a few minutes a game. He's going to be insanely overpaid for that role, but he could be a good player for a team that's rebuilding with cheap contracts. What I envision for him is a PJ Brown type of role for the 2008 Celtics. the trouble will be finding a team that's the caliber of that Celtics team with enough space to absorb the contract.

13 Apr 2018 14:55:06
Bulls pick MPJ then with pels pick take Mitchell Robinson then on draft night try to get a extra few firsts for 19 for rolo Justin Holiday Jerian Grant.

13 Apr 2018 15:11:45
POR would probably give up a first for Lopez if Bulls took Turner or Leonard in return. Didn't Pax or Hoiberg say Looez was in Long term plans recently?

14 Apr 2018 21:05:06
It’s obviously mpj wants to be a bull his sc Twitter follows bulls players could tell all teams his medical records are bad but tell bullls he’s fine.

13 Apr 2018 14:31:41
Sixers/Bulls

Sixers get: future highly protected 2nd
Bulls get: Bayless (1yr left at 9mill), and sixers own 2018 #1(pick 26).

Sixers clear 9 more million in cap room, allow them to go after LBJ.

Bulls gain another first round pick for their rebuild. Only on the hook for 1 year with bayless. Win/Win trade.
Sixers are on an amazing run, and to think they are the #3 seed and winners of 52 games was not even in anyones mind at the beginning of the season. Saying this, I am a firm believer that adding arguably the best player on the planet to ANY team will be a good thing. They will make the fit work with Simmons and LBJ. This is what "The Process" was all about. Getting the top picks, hoping one or two become all stars, and then being able to attract free agents.

13 Apr 2018 14:48:58
Bulls could then try to flip that plus pels pick and Bobby Portis for a teen pick 12-16?

13 Apr 2018 14:50:55
This is reasonable, and continues to be a trend in the NBA. The fact that the Bulls only have to take on one year of Bayless, while teams like the Nets are taking on multi year deals is a win for them. Philly already has another 1st in the draft, so losing the least favourable one is no big deal.

13 Apr 2018 14:56:03
Could probably get a 2nd for him outright. Expiring deal has some value.

13 Apr 2018 15:05:12
The 5 year 'Process" top draft picks:

2013: #6 Nerlens Noel-failure, #11 MCW (turned into #10 pick this year from Lakers) -To be determind
2014: #3 Joel Embiid-Success, #12 Dario Saric-Success
2015: #3 Jahlil Okafor-Failure
2016: #1 Ben Simmons-Success
2017: #1 Markelle Fultz-To be determind

The fortunate thing about "the process' is it produced two top NBA talents, gave the team an identity and togetherness, made the sixers an actual destination that free agaents may be attracted too, and left the Sixers with huge cap room to possibly get another top player.

13 Apr 2018 15:26:02
If PHI gets to the Conference championship, or better, free agents will be there.

13 Apr 2018 22:03:05
Expiring contracts only have value if you trade a longer term contract for it. They won’t get a second straight up for it. A team isn’t going well we want to spend 9 million for no reason. I mean. It’s expiring so yay.

14 Apr 2018 13:09:44
I'm going well, I mean, so yay! Every GM is an adolescent girl?

11 Apr 2018 03:22:57
Cavs - Bulls

Bulls receive: Pick 7, Thompson, Smith
Cavs receive: Portis, Payne, Holiday

11 Apr 2018 05:28:42
Giving away a top 7 pick for cap relief is foolish.

11 Apr 2018 06:42:43
Sorry I meant Dunn not Payne. Looking back I think if the Cavs received pick 21 as well it may be fair.

11 Apr 2018 13:15:47
Yeah. Changing out one bust for another does not change the fact that the 7th pick for salary relief is foolish.

11 Apr 2018 14:42:43
I wouldn't label Dunn a bust at this point. He's shown some really good flashes this season. I still probably wouldn't make the trade, but the bust label isn't fair yet.

11 Apr 2018 14:59:25
I like Portis, but Dunn isn't much of a shooter, which is a must for a Cavs pg unless Lebron walks. There are probably easier ways for the Cavs to save money.

10 Apr 2018 14:58:10
NY plan to get the Claw in 2018, Lebron in 2019 and renew Claw.

Bucks get Gasol
Spurs get Porzingis Kanter Hardaway
Knicks get Claw Howard DJWilson
Hornets get Henson

Sixers get Lee Thomas
Bulls get Korkmaz Cabarrot Noah
Knicks get Faried Holiday Lopez
Nuggets get Bayless

Claw/Dotson/Mathews-38th
Lebron/Wilson/Jackson-MD-53th

10 Apr 2018 15:27:46
R. Lopez for multiple picks? I would really be surprised if they could get one 24+. A second maybe as an expiring is doable to a team in need of cap manipulation. Bulls tried, didn't work. Trade expiring Howard for Henson? Why? They have 4 centers. Even if Henson is a true PF. I am not following some of these moves. Keep Porzingis.

10 Apr 2018 16:05:55
Lopez can gain you 2 top 2nd rounders for his expiring contract. Bulls looking for a 1st round pick for Lopez with 1 more yr left
Mudiay can get you a late 2nd
Knicks have their 1st and 2nd

4 years of lebron 6 years of leonard is better than 10 years of Porzingis.

10 Apr 2018 16:07:42
If hornets have 3 offensive center they need a PF who is defensive minded with undersized older Marv-Will as their only other opt.

10 Apr 2018 16:25:13
here we go again.

10 Apr 2018 16:38:55
Why would Milwaukee give up Henson, (10 Mil. a year) and DJ Wilson, (Rookie contract) to get an older Gasol with a overpaid 18 Mil. contract? Isn't Gasol retiring soon? This doesn't make any sense for the Buck's.

10 Apr 2018 16:56:35
Henson presents is 1 sided. Wilson has no value yet. Gasol playoff ex perience, passing, scoring will be needed. If bucks get elimated 3rd consecutive year with reaching.

10 Apr 2018 18:00:12
Again, Why would the Bucks take on an aging player, with a massive contract, for what a year, maybe two? Henson is younger, No one knows what Wilson can do, as he gets no PT. I think Milwaukee would pass on the idea. Plus they have Zeller, and Maker, maybe not as talented as Gasol, but quite a bit younger, and less expensive. Milwaukee like every other team is trying to get rid of Older players and big contracts. Not bring more on!

10 Apr 2018 18:22:42
Monroe loss was huge for bucks but the need for bledsoe was equal. Gasol for 2 yrs bring what you had in Monroe in addition to leadership and mentor. Zeller for Hernangomez helps both teams.

10 Apr 2018 18:36:05
@shizzee,

Pau Gasol, 7ft. 37 yrs. old, Averages; 10 ppg, 8 rpg, and 3 apg, makes 18.6 mil per yr.

John Henson, 6'11", 27 yrs old, Averages 8 ppg, 6 rpg and 1.5 apg, makes 11.4 mil per year.

D. J. Wilson 6'10" (basically no averages, doesn't play enough) makes Rookie contract 3.9 Mil a year.

So, Milwaukee gives up roughly 3 mil a year, plus 10 years of youth, to add 2 ppg, and 2 more rpg? They already have a 40 yr, old player in J. Terry Why again would they want to add another aging player?

10 Apr 2018 18:50:36
I think Gasol is going to retire. Doesn't need money, had a great career, not in championship contention. Retired from Spanish ball already. I think he's hangin' it up.

11 Apr 2018 05:01:02
Also hensons cap number goes down every year.

08 Apr 2018 19:42:25
Knicks Offseason:

1. Fire Jeff Hornacek and Hire Mark Jackson

2. Knicks Clippers Trade-

Knicks Receive: the 12th overall pick, the 14th overall pick

Clippers Receive: the 8th overall pick, 38th overall pick

3. NBA Draft-

12th pick: Trae Young

14th pick: Miles Bridges

44th pick: Devonte Graham

4. Free Agency-

-Resign Michael Beasley to a 1 year 9 million dollar contract

-Resign Kyle O'Quinn to a 2 year 16 million dollar contract

-Sign Mario Hezonja to a 1 year 5 million dollar contract

-Resign Ron Baker on a minimum contract

-Let Enes Kanter walk

Post Free agency-

-Send Devonte Graham and Ron Baker to the G-League

-Knicks/Bulls Trade

Knicks Receive: Omer Asik, cash considerations

Bulls Receive: Courtney Lee

Depth Chart:

1-Trae Young/Trey Burke/Emmanuel Mudiay
2-Tim Hardaway Jr./Frank Ntlikina/Dameyan Dotson
3-Miles Bridges/Mario Hezonja/Troy Williams
4-Kristaps Porzingis/Michael Beasley/Luke Kornet
5-Kyle O'Quinn/Omer Asik/Joakim Noah

The Knicks get two nice young pieces for the team. Miles Bridges has good size and has potential to be a good all around player and Trae Young, who although is falling in the draft, is an elite scorer already. If Porzingis stays healthy, and Mark Jackson does a good job, this team has a good chance at pushing for a high playoff spot (7th or 8th). Mario Hezonja also showed some flashes of potential towards the end of the 2017-2018 season. This team has a lot of depth/versatality around their roster in Tim Hardaway Jr., Frank Ntlikina, Emmanuel Mudiay andMichael Beasley can all play multiple positions.

08 Apr 2018 20:23:43
Jello,
Its not up to the knicks to "let kanter walk". He has a player option for $16million next year, not a team option.

08 Apr 2018 20:34:54
Mark Jackson was fired for the players, and owners not liking him, and thinking they would be better off without him. How is that doing a good job as a head coach? I know he was a knick, and a pacer, and others, but this is now, and Porzingis needs a really good coach who knows how to motivate, and manage. Clips trading 12th, and 14th for 8th doesn't seem likely. 38th is half the value of any of those picks. Can't let Kanter walk if he opts in. Which is likely. If KCP got 20 for 1 year, Beasley is going to get 15 for 1, I'd imagine. Bulls didn't want long term salary at deadline this season, can't see them interested in Lee.

08 Apr 2018 21:29:27
Jvoug1 Yes I know that but Enes Kanter is expected to decline his option.

08 Apr 2018 21:39:44
His agent will talk him out of that quickly. He won't make a quarter of that number on the open market this year. He'd be lucky to get a 3 year deal worth his option.

09 Apr 2018 02:18:59
He isn’t expected to walk. May consider it. Also. Didn’t baker sign a two year last year so he’s signed?

This looks like a long winded post for non fan that barely follows the team but is trying to sound like an nba insider. Kinda funny.

09 Apr 2018 16:23:54
Jello, you managed to give NY the worst starting defensive backcourt. For you new generations, defense wins yoi championship not great stats.

09 Apr 2018 17:52:34
actually, as always shizzee, that's not true. defense is a part towards winning championships. but last time I checked, offense was as well. I know you hate states, and win/ loss record is just a stat, but checking out the top 10 defenses by year, quite a bit of clunker teams in there. Every. Year.

08 Apr 2018 16:28:52
Knicks already said they want to get longer wings, trade salary that exceeds 2019 outside of rookies contract, with Porzingis likely out until 2019 next yr i'd their final rebuild year.

Nuggets get Thomas
Bulls get Faried Lee
Knicks get Holiday Asik

Stretch Noah the following year where only under 4 mil is counted against the cap over 5 year. Asik final year is not guarenteed 3 mil buyout. 85 mil available in cap space to sign 3 superstars in 2019 before Porzingis accept qualifer and extends 5yr 150 mil.

Trading Holiday Mudiay Burke for multiple 2nds should give them 15 man roster in 2019-20

2019 summer
Rozier & T.Harris get 4 100mil
starting with 22 mil in 2019
Leonard get 45 mil in 2019, 4yr 200mil with new endorsement contract worth another 100 mil.Hernangomez for MLE

19-20 will be a dangerous team.
Rozier/Ntilikina/Ponds-19
Leonard/Dotson/Mathews-19
Z.Williamson-19/Diop-18/Hogg-19
Harris/Jacksonjr-18/Wagner-18
Porzingis/Hernangomez/Bolden-19

08 Apr 2018 20:43:55
Is Porzingis going to resign for $2 a year? Not enough cap space for all of this.

08 Apr 2018 21:35:42
There are so many things wrong with this scenario I don't even know where to start. Justin Holiday sucks compared to Tim Hardaway Jr. Also a team with kawhi and KP isn't going to land a top 5 pick for Zion. Paying rosier 25 mil a year is just stupid. Why would Willy Hernangomez come back to the knicks after demanding a trade. Maybe you should just respond to trade rumors instead of making up ones like this that don't make any sense.

08 Apr 2018 23:22:11
jello, you understood nothing from my post. Hardaway for Mathews will work bc of Hardaway age, you will never win with Hardaway bc he can't his shadow. Holiday is better hardaway bc you forget defense. Something Rozier does and much more and he will get in 2 years bc that's is ny plan. Bc knicks are tanking next year again and will land pursue Zion. Read it again buddy.

Porzingis has a qualifier in 2019 he will accept and in 2020 sign an extension if he wants talent around. Knicks can afford 25 over cap bc they are richest team.

09 Apr 2018 17:56:50
Rozier is superstar money eh? Classic foolish post over here.

To give you a bit more understanding on the player, he shoots under 40%. So clearly, he ain't helping with 50% of the game. offense.

But you think his defense is what championships are made of and warrents what, 25 million a year?!?! In depth metrics are good at actually seeing how a player is on defense. Again, I get this is over your head, but maybe you can follow this. Opponents offensive is essentially the same when he is on court, versus off. Meaning, not much of an impact. Not good, not bad. But no way in hell worth 25 million a year.

Even worse, you want the future floor general to be a guy who in over 25 minutes a game averages less than 3 assists? You are ridiculous and a horrible knicks fan.

10 Apr 2018 19:27:04
Your a horrible metrics analyst, not taking into account which guys for the opposing team are on the floor when said player is on, and the various matchups, other teammates etc. If you were any kind of expert you'd know this, and wouldn't tout these 1 sided metrics stats except where they apply in a very basic and fundamental analysis. Ridiculous. Metrics. Laughable. How many more Danny Ainge's have to tell you they don't use that crap, but do in a much more player on player, matchup, in depth basis. Go troll somewhere else, and take your propaganda with you.

06 Apr 2018 06:01:40
Knicks clear big contract by the end of next yr to have 90 mil in cap space. Bulls take on future salary to land a 2nd lotto pick. Hornets get out Batum Zeller contract for more productive Hardaway and 2nd rim protector behind Howard. Mavs cut payroll for equal talent.

It's an interesting deal come the deadline next season. 4 teams swapping their overpaid guys. The Bulls are really taking it on the chin long term. MAVS might want a little incentive for the extra seasons Lee brings with him.

06 Apr 2018 16:18:01
this is the worst return for the Knicks. Lopez, Mathews and Asik have horrible contracts. Even though you cleared out Noah, you get 4 worthless players with bad contracts and you lose the 8th pick. And why would the Knicks trade lance Thomas for Kenneth Faried who is on a multi year deal paying him 13 mil annually. This trade is horrible.

06 Apr 2018 18:10:50
Toastchip,

Lopez and Mathews are in their final year next. Asik final season is not guarenteed. So once again you exposed about not anything about GMing.

06 Apr 2018 18:52:55
buddy,

you don't trade the 8th pick and Tim Hardaway jr. for no names just to clear out Noah. Lopez, asik, varied, etc all suck.

07 Apr 2018 01:01:36
Haha another great trade from you, nobody wants any of them players the pick is the only thing worth anything and your team is trading it away. Garbage just like everything else you post.

07 Apr 2018 22:28:23
Heat team fully healthy, you butt whole burns bc you lost to Knicks g league team, smh.

07 Apr 2018 22:29:35

Knicks know how hard it is to add another star without loosing Porzingis or trading picks. Taking on 2 bad contracts might be the cost to land Ball while loosing Frank and Enes. Ny will have to continue make other moves to create cap space to add FA's in 2019. Ny circus will feed into the Balls family. Knicks will pick up LiAngelo undrafted to develop in G league.

Bulls get 9th Deng Noah
Knick get Holiday Lopez Mathews Asik
Mavs get Hardaway Bulls 2nd

05 Apr 2018 06:43:22
I cannot see Kanter, or Lee on the Spurs. Worst contract on the Spurs is Gasol, if that is even a bad contract. Trading a guy like Leonard doesn't return a defensively challenged Center, to Popovich, and a very expensive 32 year old.

05 Apr 2018 15:14:03
Jorga you are saying that 37 years old Gasol making 16 million a year isn't a bad contract?

05 Apr 2018 16:25:41
this might be the worst trade scenario ever.

05 Apr 2018 17:49:38
Tonchcorkins he could retire at any moment, he's a true 7ft'er, plays 20 mins puts up 10, 8 numbers. Yep I said it, and I'm proud.

04 Apr 2018 15:56:40
Cavs pick land 3 bulls pick land 8

Cavs get pick 8,pick 18,2019 bulls pick top 2 protected,2020 2nd,2021 1st top 7 protected,2022 2nd

Bulls get pick 3,jr smith

04 Apr 2018 16:13:38
That seems like a ton for the Bulls to give up. I love it for the Cavs though. That'd be a straight Danny Ainge move.

04 Apr 2018 18:47:07
I don't think the Bulls would do it. Giving up a lot, with so little in return.

05 Apr 2018 12:30:00
Pick number 8, 18 plus 2 2nd rounders (or a future first) seems fair.

03 Apr 2018 20:01:23
Bulls this offseason draft Mikal Bridges and with pels pick Mitchell Robinson if someone offers Zach a 20m+ years contract don’t match it he’s not worth it. Instead sign will Barton, Maybe also look into signing KCP trade Robin Lopez too the Celtics for 2019 clippers first and send them Justin holiday and Grant would be cheaper than resigning Terry rozel and marcus smart look to get out of felecio and Omar asik contract maybe alanta for Kent bazemore and 2020 and 2021 first? Sign Fred vanleet to back up dunn then fire hoiberg sign David fizdale and sign Ron Adams who should of never got fired from the bulls.

03 Apr 2018 22:26:39
Hoiberg is 100 times better than Fizdale easily. CHI isn't landing James are they? That's about the only guy that will keep him in line, maybe. C's don't want Lopez over anyone they currently have, and certainly not a 1st. Lavine isn't getting 20 mil, no worries there. DEN isn't letting Barton go. Without the lottery occurring tough to say who the Bulls would draft. They need a Center.

03 Apr 2018 23:20:40
Go bulls.

03 Apr 2018 23:37:38
Those 2 trades are both ridiculous. I do think it's possible that Lavine could get 20 million. He probably should get around 15 million, but young guys could end up with some big offers given the teams that do have cap space.

04 Apr 2018 00:26:59
But teams under the cap like nets did with Otto Porter jr 76ers.

04 Apr 2018 02:08:55
Stupidity like with O. Porter isn't going to go on forever. WAS would deal him if they could. All the tweeners getting too much was predicted before t. v. Money went into effect. Said it would stop within a couple seasons. This is the year I bet. 1-3 mil. Cap increase is all that is expected.

03 Apr 2018 19:56:41
Sixers/Bulls

Sixers get: Bulls pick #8
Bulls get: Lakers pick #10 and Sixers pick #24, knicks pick #39

Sixers move up 2 spots to grab Carter, Bridges, or Porter(if he falls due to injury).
Bulls move down 2 spots but gain another #1 pick and a high 2nd rd pick.

03 Apr 2018 20:24:31
Why would bulls do this they need help more at sf Philly already has ROCO bulls if asked trade that pick for Robert Covington bulls have bunch of cap.

03 Apr 2018 23:34:51
I think this all depends on who Chicago is targeting. If they're higher on a guys like Miles Bridges or Knox than Sexton, young, Carter or Mikal Bridges this may make sense.

03 Apr 2018 02:32:50
Bulls receive: Dellavedova, Wilson, '20 2nd
Bucks receive: Lopez

Bucks get their starting C and get rid of Delly
Bulls get a prospect, and a 2nd for a C that would leave for nothing at the end of the year. Also frees up minutes for Portis and Markkanen

03 Apr 2018 07:39:34
Bucks starting C? Lopez? Expiring is good, but who are they going to deal him for at the deadline next season?

31 Mar 2018 09:10:16

draft: robinson

roster
portis/ gasol/ robinson
aldridge/ gay/ bertans or any chip forward
leonard/ anderson/ ennis
bradley/ green/ belinelli or ginobili

31 Mar 2018 11:59:33
I don't see why Chicago trades a good young player for a 30 back up pg making 10 million dollars and a 2nd round pick.

31 Mar 2018 12:59:07
I would say this is more likely if:

To CHI - Mills, 2018 1st

To SAS - Portis, future 2nd.

30 Mar 2018 12:59:32
Trade machine approved
T Wolves - Hornets - Spurs - Bulls

TW get: Howard, Walker, Holiday

Walker, Jones
Holiday, Crawford
Butler, MKG
Towns, Bjelica
Howard, Gibson

Take a lot of salary in but it's win now anyways. I like Wiggins a lot but more defense is needed and he will probably do better somewhere else which is..

H get: Wiggins, Gasol, Mills, Murray,

Murray, Mills
Wiggins, Monk
Batum, Lamb
Williams, Kaminsky
Zeller, Hernangomez

I know Jordan said he wanted an all star for Kemba, Wiggins definitely could be and they get younger in the process. Building around Wiggins, Murray, Monk, Hernangomez and another first round pick isn't bad at all.

S get: Teague, Portis, Lopez, 2018 TW 2nd, 2018 H 2nd

Teague, Parker
Green, Ginobili, White
Leonard, Anderson
Portis, Gay, Bertans
Lopez

Trading in Murray, Mills, and Gasol for a pg upgrade, young pf who I feel would fit well, and a solid c plus a couple 2nds this year seems like a good haul to me.

B get: Dieng, Patton, Aldrich (waive), Spurs 2018 or 2019 1st

Dunn, Grant
Valentine,
2018 pick (Porter, Knox, Either Bridges)
Markkanen, Patton/Vonleh
Dieng, Patton/Felicio

The bulls best piece they trade away is Portis who will be asking for a big contract next year anyway. Lopez and holiday were just stopgaps but Dieng is still fairly young and Patton is the real prize he can be very good. Along with a 1st from the spurs this year or next I think it's fair for them as wel as all the times.

30 Mar 2018 13:12:10
Hornets aren't getting a 1st my bad I switched it to go to the Bulls.

30 Mar 2018 16:03:04
U got so excited to make a twolves superior, that you forgot Aldridge on spurs. Asik from Chicago who also get crapped in deal.

30 Mar 2018 17:18:01
You're right I completely forgot about Aldridge and sail is irrelevant so doesn't matter that I left him off.

30 Mar 2018 18:59:16
Spurs would definitely say no. If I see value in Murray, and his salary over Teague, someone else is going to. Gasol, and Mills, and a 1st to boot. Their return haul of Lopez, and Aldrich is not very alluring either.

30 Mar 2018 19:11:39
I have too hard a time evaluating multi-team trades without a strict in/ out for each team, for me to decide whether they would do the deal. A couple things I like though:

1. Wiggins in CHA seems like a very nice fit. He's younger and pre-star, and the Hornets have the assets to get him. I also wonder if Jordan would embrace a guy like Wiggins, when he used to endorse the athletic Michael Finley when he was younger.

2. I also like Teague in SAS, simply because with his floater game, he reminds me a little of a younger Tony Parker, and I know Pops knows what to do with that type of point guard.

3. I also don't mind Dieng on the Bulls. He's not a perfect fit, but he'd certainly be a starter there, and he was #62 in RPM last year as a starter. Dieng is constantly developing, but he knows how to play with a star too, and I think that would help Markannen. Even if Dieng isn't the best rim protector, he does many things well.

23 Mar 2018 21:41:04
Knicks - Spurs

Knicks gets:
Leonard

Spurs gets:
Lee
Mudiay
9th pick (Knicks)
38th pick (via Bulls)
2020 1st rd pick (Top 5 protected)

Based on recent news I believe this is a fair, if not to good of an offer for Leonard, based on his expiring contract.

23 Mar 2018 22:03:35
I believe the Spurs would want more than, Lee, Mudiay, and The 9th, 38th, and 2020 pick.

23 Mar 2018 22:12:01
What news? I haven't read anything definitive about his future with S. A. Other than he may sign a 200 million dollar contract with the Spurs in the off season.

23 Mar 2018 22:17:59
I think there are multiple teams that would throw everything they could at the Spurs to get Leonard.

23 Mar 2018 22:27:02
Don't think the Knicks get Leonard without the Unicorn being involved.

24 Mar 2018 00:00:05
Jorga, Parker just basically called out Leonard and there is the whole players only meeting thing. They're in the middle of a winning streak. What else could they have been discussing other than Leonard. The situation is weird. I'm not sure Kawhi is gone, but it seems like the Spurs and Kawhi have a lot of work to do, if they're going to make it work.

24 Mar 2018 03:00:59
Superfleecollar,

Is Celtics season over? Do you think injuries did damage to Celtics this yr.

24 Mar 2018 03:52:35
Rkenne_16, I don't have to arrive to your conclusion, or opinion. It's a little to dramatic for my taste. There are lots of ways to interpret what Parker said. For the love of god man, I will never change my opinion because you don't share it, or agree with it!

24 Mar 2018 10:55:03
I didn't say you should change your opinion. You said you hadn't heard anything new and I informed you. Quit crying.

24 Mar 2018 13:18:27
All bickering aside, let's get back to the deal, which there is no way on earth the Spurs would accept. Even expiring, and possibly out with his teammates, teams will be lining up with much better offers to land him.

23 Mar 2018 21:24:10
Draft night

Knicks - Suns

Knicks gets:
15th pick (via Bucks)
16th pick (via Heat)

Suns gets:
9th pick (Knicks)
48th pick (via Bulls)
Noah
Thomas

Knicks give up a valuable pick but gets two rookies in the first round to help build with Porzingis and Ntilikina. Getting rid of Noah and Thomas gives them cap space to go after free agents.

Suns gets another lottery pick in a top heavy draft. They already have a lot of youth and don't need three rookies next year.

23 Mar 2018 22:23:08
PHX would have to get something they really want, and unload something they really don't want to deal their picks in this years draft. Noah, and the lottery pick maybe. For nothing in return. Even that would surprise me if PHX agreed to that.

24 Mar 2018 00:07:22
I think it takes just the two 1sts to move up to 9. I think it would take a 1st just to move Noah. The Suns pass.
