76ers / Bulls / Kings

A very similar trade was posted about a week ago, I just changed it a bit, but I love the trade for all teams involved.

76ers trade Lakers #1 next year(only 1-3 protected), OKC's #1 next year, and this years #35 and #37 picks.
76ers get Kings #6 pick and Jason Thompson's bad contract(owed 6.4 mill next year and 6.8 the following year).
76ers do it to draft hezonja and Russell to form backcourt of the future at 6'5' and 6'8" with superstar potential that can shoot!

Kings Trade #6 pick and unload Thompson's contract.
Kings get Taj Gibson, Lakers #1(only 1-3 protected next year), and picks #35 & #37 this year.
Kings do it to get a lottery pick next year(There's goes to Chicago, 1-10 protected), get a excellent PF to work with cousins, and a stabilizing vet Cousins could learn from on and off the court. I think Karl values this. Also, they unload thompsons contract, freeing up some FA money and pick up 2 high second rounders this year.

Bulls trade taj Gibson(solve the longjam problem at PF.
Bulls get OKC's #1 next year.
Bulls do it to get a #1 pick back for Gibson.
**maybe we through another second rounder the bulls way to sweeten the deal a bit?
if lakers pick doesn't convey this year, I think this is the best way I've seen yet to get Russell and Hezonja in the backcourt next season. thanks again for whoever came up with this trade to begin with.

23 Apr 2015 13:06:03
I like it. Would like to keep the Lakers pick but if it goes, then it goes. I see you decided to not waive Thompson once he gets to the Sixers. No reason to do that anymore. That leaves Sixers with 4 man front court of Embiid, Noel, T. Robinson (who I expect back) and Thompson- leaving Saric one more year in Euroball to develop.

I also like that, from what I read somewhere, Hezonja and Saric are friendly.

If Sixers are at #3, do you want Mudiay or Russell to go with Hezonja? Mudiay might attract more defensive attention than Russell, opening space for Hezonja's slashing to the rim and/or catch and shoot.

I do have questions about Mudiay and his choose to play in China instead of the NCAA.

G: Wroten, Hezonja, Russell/Mudiay, McRae
SF: Covington, Grant
C/PF: Noel, Embiid, Thompson, T. Robinson
Two more spots available for veterans: Luc Mam, J. Rich, or mystery veteran PG.

23 Apr 2015 13:33:19
makes a lot of sense. really good thinking

23 Apr 2015 13:45:37
Actually love that trade for all involved. Kings might pass though. Taj Gibson isn't worth a first rounder.

23 Apr 2015 15:07:06
Sixers don't get the OKC pick this year.

23 Apr 2015 15:07:46
^^ My bad you said next year's pick

24 Apr 2015 08:30:23
Phillyrich1.I take Russell over Mudiay every time for sixers. I like your point about mudiay opening things up for hezonja wih his slashing drives, but I feel Russell will open things up better and work the pick and roll better with embiid and noel. With noel on the floor, I want both guards to be able to shoot.

24 Apr 2015 14:29:32
The reason that I think that mudiay decided to play in china is because he was going to be a one and done in college and he wanted to have some experience playing pro before the nba. And because he got paid I think 1 mill to play in china.

22 Apr 2015 06:30:44
Bulls get OJ Mayo

Bucks get Taj Gibson

22 Apr 2015 20:00:36
bulls pass because they can get a better offer from taj than that

19 Apr 2015 01:11:54

Minnesota gets Jimmy Butler (s&t) and Nikola Mirotic

Rubio/ Lavine
Butler/ Neal
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Mirotic/ Payne
Dieng/ Pek

Get the MIP and one of the best rookies from 2014

Chicago get pick 1 (Towns) and Kevin Martin

Rose/ Brooks
Martin/ Hinrich
Dunlevey/ Snell
Gasol/ Gibson
Towns/ Noah

Finally solve the PF situation and the backup center situation

19 Apr 2015 13:19:53
Lol towns starting over Noah. Funny

19 Apr 2015 16:00:17
Bulls would say no to that, Butler and Morotic would get more

16 Apr 2015 16:17:47
3- Way trade between Sixers/Kings/Bulls

CHI trades- Taj Gibson (Kings)
CHI Gets- OKC 2016 1st Rd (via PHI)
-Bulls clear up PF logjam with Gasol/Mirotic and clear up cap space to resign jimmy butler

SAC trades- #6 Pick & Jason Thompson (Sixers)
SAC gets- Taj Gibson & LAL 2016 1st (via PHI)
- SAC gets Starting caliber PF they desperately want next to boogie and get rid of shit contract in jason thompson, get 1st rounder next year since theirs goes to bulls

PHI trades- LAL 2016 1st (SAC) & OKC 2016 1st (CHI)
PHI gets- Kings #6 & Jason Thompson (buyout)
- allows PHI to draft Hezonja as SG or use Heat and PHI 2016 pick to move up to #4 and get Russell

16 Apr 2015 21:19:18
Makes a ton of sense for Sixers. accellerates their rebuild considerably.

Sacramento should say yes but might not given the organization might lose cousins soon.

Bulls should say yes given taj Gibson isn't giving you a first rounder in many trades even though he has talent.

16 Apr 2015 21:59:57
Only issue is I don't see the kings giving up the 6 for that combo. Realistically, both the lakers and the thunder will be significantly better next year. Thunders pick would be late 20s. The lakers most likely will be in the mid to late teens. Adding those two don't add up to a 6 pick in a top heavy draft. Just being realistic.

17 Apr 2015 00:10:38
I like this trade for all teams. Sac does it because .
1. they don't have a #1 next year, and LA's is a top 10 pick (sorry pizza, but there is no way the lakers make the playoffs next year in the west, so mid to late teens seems ridiculous). I don't overvalue it, but that's really undervaluing it. Sac fills a need at PF with gibson. Plus, Sac drops a very crappy contract in Thompson on philly. Trade works well for all, wish I thought of it

17 Apr 2015 13:28:02
If I'm the Sixers I do that. But I'm not buying out Jason Thompson. He's a trusted veteran big man that could help Robinson, Embiid, Simms and Noel.

Front Court (5): Noel, Embiid, T. Robinson, J. Thompson, Simms (wait for Saric)

Small Forwards (2): Covington, Grant

Back Court (4): Top 5 pick, Wroten, McRae, Hollis Thompson

Last player on roster is the newly acquired pick from Sacramento.

Picks in the bank: a mess of second rounders, Sixers first rounders, Miami first rounder.

17 Apr 2015 13:56:21
I like it too, if the Kings agree. This gives the Sixers 2 first rounders each year, a much better result than having one in 2015 and 4 next year. So this year they could add Mudiay and Hezonja (plus Embiid and maybe McRae) and next year Saric and 2 more first rounders. Nice idea.

17 Apr 2015 18:56:17
I like this trade a lot. Good thinking.

14 Apr 2015 01:25:14

I feel like Knicks will get pick one and wolves will get two. I think Knicks will get Towns so this is what the wolves should do.

Trade Gorgui Dieng and Kevin Martin to Bulls

For Nikola Mirotic and Hinrich

Draft Jahil Okafor and sign Teletovic

Rubio/ Brown
Wiggins/ Lavine
Muhammad/ Teletovic
Mirotic/ Payne/ Bennett
Okafor/ Pek

14 Apr 2015 21:46:42
terrible move Pekovic Bennett for Morris twin draft Okafor or Towns

14 Apr 2015 22:29:58

15 Apr 2015 01:48:45
Not getting Mirotic for those guys.

13 Apr 2015 21:50:17
NBA Trade day Deal

Nuggets - Lakers - Bulls

--- Nuggets get: 3rd overal pick, Taj Gibson, Ryan Kelly and Nick Young

DEN reason: To move up and select their future potential superstar Emmanel Mudiay. They also bring in a nice starting solid contract PF but have to take a contract in Nick Young but NY is a very good scorer off the bench.

Nuggets start fresh building around Mudiay and Nusific. They can look to do a sign n trade with SA to bring in Danny Green. Send Randy Foye and Kennieth Faried for Danny Green. Then go out and sign Greg Monroe

Emmanuel Mudiay / Erick Green
Danny Green / Jamal Franklin
Danillio Gallonari / Nick Young
Taj Gibson / Ryan Kelly
Greg Monroe / Jusuf Nurkic

--- Lakers get: 7th overall pick, Ty Lawson, and Tony Snell

LA reason: I believe LA is always more attracted to stars than to draft stars. Ty Lawson was a lead leaguer in assist. He is explosive and dynamic guard who will bring a mini showtime back to LA. Lakers biggest needs are SF and C. We get Snell who I think can blossom into an all around role player. Lakers will draft Willie Cauley Stein. We also get rid of Youngs contract to Fred up money to get a max player. How the team looks now may be intriguing enough to K.Love To may want to return home.

If Love does leave it's going to be LA. So my pipe dream lineup next season.

Sign Kevin Love and Richard Jefferson

Ty Lawson / Jordan Clarkson / Dwight Buyocks
Kobe Bryant / Jabari Brown
Tony Snell / Richard Jefferson / Rondae Hollis Jefferson
Kevin Love / Julius Randle
Willie - Cauley Stein / Tarik Black / Robert Sacre

---Bulls get: 34th pick and 56th pick, JJ Hickson, and Gary Harris

CHI reason: They get a future true SG who fits THibs play. Hickson is expiring to save money from Taj and 2 2nd round draft picks. Bulls have the 21st and 34th picks. I see them picking up Jerian Grant, a big smart PG who IMO will be a close all star. Then pick up a center like Robert Upshaw who fits the play. Sign Andre Miller and resign Dunleavy

Derrick Rose / Andre Miller / Jaerian Grant
Jimmy Butler / Gary Harris / Kirk Hinrich
Mike Dunleavy / Dough McDermott
Pau Gasol / Nikola Miritoc
Joakim Noah / JJ Hickson / Robert Upshaw

10 Apr 2015 01:57:23

Chicago gets Gorgui Dieng, Sauce Castillo, and pick 1

Draft Towns

Butler/ Sauce
Towns/ Gibson
Noah/ Dieng

Sac gets Pau Gasol, Muhammad, Pek

Gasol/ Pek

Min gets Mirotic and Cousins

Rubio/ Lavine
Mirotic/ Payne
Cousins/ KG

10 Apr 2015 11:08:23
Beyond awful for the Kings.

10 Apr 2015 11:26:07
How are the Bulls getting a number 1?!?!?

10 Apr 2015 14:20:04

He is saying the Wolves ate trading the number 1 pick.

And this is a horrible trade for the Wolves and Kings, Mirotic is not worth all of that

09 Apr 2015 15:53:57
Orlando - Chicago

Orlando get Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott

Chicago get Tobias Harris (s&t) and Mo Harkless

Magic get a young 3-point shooter who still need to develop and a defensive minded PF to teach Aaron Gordon

Magic select Stanley Johnson with their pick

Payton / Ridnour / FA
Oladipo / Fournier
Johnson / McDermott
Gibson / Gordon
Vucevic / Frye / Oquinn

Bulls get the scoring help and the SF they need, build the best front line rotation (maybe).

Rose / Brooks / Hinrich
Butler / Dunleavy / Snell
Harris / Harkless
Gasol / Mirotic
Noah / pick / Bairstow

09 Apr 2015 01:23:37
Trade on Draft Day

Nuggets trade Lawson, Chandler
Nuggets get Stauskas, McDermott, J.Thompson, Kings 1st round pick 2015 #6-7

Kings trade Collison, Stauskas, J.Thompson, 1st round pick 2015 #6-7
Kings get Lawson, T.Gibson

Bulls trade T.Gibson, McDermott
Bulls get Collison, Chandler

Nuggets rebuild with:
- 2 lottery picks 2015 (own and Kings') to draft a PG and best avaible talent SG/SF/PF (Winslow, Johnson, Porzingis, Hezonja. )
- acquired talented sharpshooters Stauskas(Kings) & McDermott(Bulls)
- own talents Nurkic & Harris
- young vets Faried + Gallo

- resign Miller, Casspi, D.Williams & Evans to 1y contracts
- sign FA SG
- at least playoff contender

- draft with own pick #19-22 best avaible PF like Portis, Harrell, McCullough or Alexander
- keep Butler in FA, sign backup C
- Collison can take some load off Rose while regular season
- sky's the limit, especially if Rose can become his old self

13 Apr 2015 20:30:01
Very good trade

07 Apr 2015 17:15:58

Bulls get Brandon Jennings and Detroit 1st round pick and Nik Stauskas


Kings get Caron Butler and Derrick Rose


Pistons get Rudy Gay and Taj Gibson


08 Apr 2015 15:16:30
No thank you. The Pistons hang up. They are going to keep their first round pick and build from a young foundation. The pistons would agree to this if it was a 2nd round pick other wise they hang up the phone.

08 Apr 2015 21:49:15
s wouldn't give Rose and Taj for that.

07 Apr 2015 05:38:15
Lakers trade Clarkson and Davis

Bulls trade D-Rose

- Lakers get star PG when healthy

- Even though they don't get a pick they get two young guys with potential. Clarkson can be a guy to avg around 13-15 ppg next year and a great backup center.

Lakers draft WCS and Hollis-Jefferson
Sign Kevin Love and backup PF

Bulls draft RJ Hunter

Hollis Jefferson-Johnson

*Trade Gibson

07 Apr 2015 09:18:03
its a big NO

07 Apr 2015 13:01:01
Ha, ha, ha, click. That's the sound Mitch Kupchak hears after he proposes this trade to Gar Forman.

01 Apr 2015 21:47:03
OKC-CHI Trade:
OKC Trades: Ibaka, Waiters, Novak
CHI Trades: D. Rose and Future 1st Rounder

Reason Thunder do it: Adams and Kanter are a great fit together and make up for each others weaknesses. Plus getting Rose would be huge having him with Durant and Westbrook. If he is not healthy then that's fine, its pretty much their current team without waiters and adding in a healthy durant, plus they get a first rounder.

Reason Bulls do it: They are getting little to no buyers for Rose and getting a proven stretch 4, who also is one of the top 3 best shot blockers in the league, would be amazing. Not to mention a solid waiters off the bench. Then they also get rid of unhealthy Rose and his salary hit.

02 Apr 2015 08:41:07
NO FOR Chicago.Rose is a legitimate franchise player the bulls management no plan to trade him

02 Apr 2015 16:09:16
Chicago says no for sure

03 Apr 2015 18:11:16
Makes zero sense. Thunder have Westbrook at the pointand the Bulls are loaded with bigs.

01 Apr 2015 20:00:11

Philly takes the Derrick rose risk

Philly gets Rose

Draft Russel


Chicago gets heat pick+Wroten+Richardson

Draft Turner


01 Apr 2015 21:46:28
I'll give them the heat pick and that's it. I posted a similar trade before. The results were that rose is too injured to warrent much value. That and his contract of twenty mil for two full seasons. That's a ton of baggage. I'd just do the heat pick for rose. That's a fair value. And Sixers are one of the few teams that have the cap to sign a guy for that much and not have make the Bulls take on a big contract back.

Works for both teams. Bulls can pay butler now and still have 15 mil to sign a free agent.

01 Apr 2015 21:49:51
I tend to think rose is worth a bit more than a mid 1 round pick and a couple role players.

01 Apr 2015 21:58:33
U know sixers won't do it.

01 Apr 2015 22:54:26
Bulls don't do that without the Sixers highest pick or the Lakers pick. Sixers don't take on an $18m albatross of a contract for a PG with knee problems. We've traded for knee problems in the past and it hasn't worked out very well- Bynum.

Brown on record wanting a true PG, a passer first, scorer second Rose is the opposite.

Good player. Maybe a great player. The problem is that Derick Rose is not necessarily an asset at this point because of his contract.

Good idea though.

02 Apr 2015 03:27:54
It really doesn't matter because we know sixers won't do it. The reason why hinkie got rid of mcw is because he thinks that we can upgrade at the point in the draft and he's right. He only wants young players so that they can grow as a team together and create chemistry on the court and he's going in the right path to building a solid franchise. And trading one of our 1st round picks for a guy who can't stop getting injured will only hurt us more and more and rose can hold us back.

02 Apr 2015 12:35:14
^^^^^ rose can hold us back. Yes, with Rose you'd be the second worst team in the league. Not the third worst. Also, you like young. rose is like 24. Heinke is on the right path? You don't have 20 wins. You will be lucky to get 25 wins next year. You aren't desirable for free agents. Sorry to tell Ya but at some point you need to attract others to play with your picks. And clearly the franchise doesn't have any appeal with heinke and his haphazard thought process.

02 Apr 2015 13:02:53
Dude you're so wrong. We have enough picks to make a great team so we don't have to have to sign free agents. I know rose is young I am just saying what hinkie wants and he wants to build a franchise in the draft not free agency. And how can rose have chemistry on the court with others on the sixes if he is always getting injured and is always rehabbing. But I might accept d-rose if we only give them the heat 1st like what Tregib said. But it won't happen so whatever.

02 Apr 2015 13:46:42
76ers FIB-
Agree. I know Rose is a talent but with his knee he can undo the entire process because of his huge cap number.

There will be a time to go get that player; its just not quite yet. For the Sixers, he's the "put you over the top guy," not the "let's get to .500 guy."

02 Apr 2015 14:47:43
This biggest issue is rose'a contract. Anyone with knee problems is a risk regardless. Now it's a two full years of risk. Sixers can't give up much for him. A mid first is reasonable and probably fair value at this point. I hope he gets healthy but right now it's unlikely he can regain that superstar ability.

30 Mar 2015 13:27:45

Kings trade Cousins, Collison, Thompson
Kings get Lawson, Faried, Gibson

Nuggets trade Lawson, Faried, Hickson
Nuggets get Barnes, Lee, Collison, Thompson, Bulls 1st round pick 2015, Warriors 1st round pick 2015 (#30)

Warriors trade Lee, Barnes, 1st round pick 2015 (#30)
Warriors get Gasol, McDermott

Bulls trade Gasol, Gibson, McDermott, 1st round pick 2015
Bulls get Cousins, Hickson

- draft Cauley-Stein
- roster gives franchise a complete new face. perfect for coach Karl's system
- still a young team with room to develop (McLemore, Stauskas, Faried, Cauley-Stein), and if you add Lawson, Gay, Gibson, Landry and Miller to that core, you have an immediat playoff contender for years to come

- complete rebuild: Barnes, own pick #6-8, Bulls pick #20-22, Warriors #30 + all their future picks
- Lee is on an expiring contract, he will help Nurkic's development. Thompson's contract is not fully guaranteed for 2016/17
- trade W.Chandler in seperate trade for a future pick
+ 3 x 1st round pick 2015
- will get another high lottery pick 2016 to build a contender again within a few years

- Warriors' get championship experienced Gasol who is an upgrade over Lee, add another sharpshooter with McDermott who will just enter his 2nd year of his rookie contract.
- better cap situation in order to keep Green
- in 2017 Bogut, Iggy, Gasol and Curry will be off the books, sign another major FA at SF/PF and C and resign Curry. (Curry/Thompson/Green + 2 FA)

- resign Butler long-term, so he and Cousins can build the future of the Bulls (If Rose is healthy and more important can stay healthy, this would be an insane big 4! Rose-Butler-Cousins-Noah)
- still an immediat championship team with this starting 5 and a bench mob Mirotic, Brooks, Hinrich, Hickson and Snell

31 Mar 2015 02:32:08
Its a fair trade for kings but they won't do it. If they trade cousins then it would be for young players and for some picks.

28 Mar 2015 23:39:21
Bulls get Melo R.Jackson Early
Pistons get Rose McDermott
Knicks get P.Gasol Gibson 7th 21st



Knicks sign Draymond Green & Marc Gasol
Hardaway for Frank Kaminsky-18th


29 Mar 2015 18:53:40
The knicks may have the least athletic front court in the history of the NBA with green, Pau, Marc and Kaminsky. Knicks wouldn't have interest in doing this.

Still think if the balls fall correctly, knicks get Okafor, sign Monroe, perhaps rondo. And they have a rather solid lineup. Rondo(or jackson or dragic), hardaway/galloway, melo, monroe, okafor. Okafor will be solid for years to come.

31 Mar 2015 15:06:05
So let me get this right Detroit gets a player who has not played a full season in four years and a big contract, and a tweeter who can't play defense for Reggie Jackson. Detroit says no

27 Mar 2015 20:12:46
Min- Chi

Min gets Gasol and Mirotic

Rubio/ Lavine
Martin/ Neal
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Mirotic/ Payne/ KG
Gasol/ Pekovic

Chicago gets D'Angelo Russel and Gorgui Dieng

Resign Butler and Sign Brandon Bass

Rose/ Brooks
Russel/ Hinrich
Butler/ Dunlevey/ McDermott
Gibson/ Bass
Noah/ Dieng

Fair value?

27 Mar 2015 20:59:26
Bulls get wayyyy too much

27 Mar 2015 23:07:22
It would be fair if it was Marc Gasol not Pau

27 Mar 2015 23:08:23
minny say no

28 Mar 2015 00:52:41
How bout D'Angelo and Pek??

28 Mar 2015 13:36:40
How about the first is worth more. Gasol is an expiring contract at that point and mirotic, while not bad, he isn't really the most accurate shooter ever. He's shooting under 40% and not positive but isn't he older than most rookies? No reason to trade that top pick for any of that.
