Bulls--Bucks--Sixers (idea from USA)

Bulls-- Monroe, Middleton, PHI 1st and MIL 1st 2017
--send Gibson to Kings for D Collison, 2nd rd pick

pg Rose-Collison-Moore
sg Middleton-Dunleavy
sf Simmons-McDermott
pf Portis-Mirotic
ce Monroe-Noah-Felicio

Bucks-- Noel, Covington, LAL 1st, MIA 1st
--sign Kent Bazemore

pg Antetokounmpo-Payton (MIA 1st)
sg Vaughn-Korkmaz (10th)
sf Bazemore-Covington
pf Parker-Obryant
ce Noel-Henson

Sixers-- Butler, MCW
--sign Jennings and Fournier

pg Jennings-Smith-Canaan
sg Fournier-MCW-Stauskas
sf Butler-Grant
pf Saric-Landry
ce Okafor-Embiid.

04 May 2016 20:47:47
If the sixers trade Noel embiid will need to start. Saric isn't know for defense. And between him and okafor it would be a rather big liability down low.

04 May 2016 21:08:59
maybe they could just put in landry in the starting line up or they could sign a defensive pf too.

04 May 2016 21:11:08
I don't think that the Sixers are getting enough back.

04 May 2016 19:43:38

Bulls-- MCW, Reddick, Parker, 1st from Bucks

pg Rose-MCW-Moore
sg Reddick-Dunleavy
sf Parker-McDermott
pf Parker-Mirotic
ce Noah-Portis-Felicio

Bucks-- Griffin, Snell, 2nd from Clippers

pg Antetokounmpo-Bayless
sg Vaughn-Snell
sf Middleton-FA
pf Griffin-Obryant
ce Monroe-Henson-Plumlee

Clippers-- Butler, Gibson

pg Paul-Rivers
sg Butler-Crawford
sf Green-Johnson-Pierce
pf Gibson-Mbah Moute
ce Jordan-Aldrich.

05 May 2016 00:13:14
Bucks won't trade Parker

04 May 2016 18:33:07

PHI get Jimmy Butler
- get the star they need to build quickly
- offer Barnes and Conley max if cannot go after Fournier or Bazemore and Lawson or Jennings

more likely Jennings and Fournier

Jennings get a fresh start and be the primary PG for a team while they overpay a bit for Fournier

Pg Jennings/ Smith/ Canaan
Sg Fournier/ Stauskas
Sf Butler/ Covington/ Grant
Pf Saric/ Landry
Ce Okafor/ Embiid

MIL get Nerlens Noel and 1st pick

- Bucks get their rim proctor and can go with multiple option
- if they draft Ingram (can be their primary scorer)

Pg Giannis/ Bayless
Sg Middleton/ Vaughn
Sf Ingram/ Inglis
Pf Monroe/ Obryant
Ce Noel/ Henson

or if they draft Simmons they should deal Monroe for a capable shooting guard

Pg Giannis
Sg Trade
Sf Middleton
Pf Simmons
Ce Noel

CHI get LAL 1st, MIL 1st, Jabari Parker and MCW
- Bulls get plenty of assets and have a proven player in Jabari who shows flashes to be a great player

Pg Rose/ MCW
Sg Dunleavy/ Moore
Sf Parker/ McDermott/ Snell
Pf Gibson/ Mirotic
Ce Noah/ Portis

who needs to give more or who needs more?

04 May 2016 19:01:13
I would think that the 1st pick would go to the Bulls instead and maybe the Lakers pick goes to the Bucks. To me it makes more sense because I don't think that Parker, MCW and their first is enough for the 1st overall plus Noel.

04 May 2016 20:21:09
Bucks need more of they're going to give up parker he's going to be a star.

04 May 2016 18:10:40
Bucks Offseason Plans

Bucks Trade Monroe and 10th pick 2016 to lakers #1 pick 2016

Trade middleton and mcw and 36th pick 2016 to bulls for butler
draft Buddy Heild
sign Howard
resign vasquez
resign bayless
resign novak

Gnaiss, Bayless, ennis
Heild, vasquez
Butler, vaughn, novak
parker, plumlee
howard, henson.

04 May 2016 19:28:43
Monroe isn't enough to move from 10 to 1. It would have to be Parker or Giannis. Even one of those might not be enough.

04 May 2016 20:25:29
Y would you draft heild #1 you wouldn't have to go that high to get him.

04 May 2016 21:51:29

If I'm the Lakers, I would definitely trade the number one pick for Giannis and number 10.

04 May 2016 23:25:48
I would trade the number one straight up for Giannis, bucks wouldn't though.

05 May 2016 03:30:26
Worse than that one is how the Bucks get Butler for that package. MCW and the 36th pick have no value, and Butler is much better than Middleton.

05 May 2016 03:47:22
No way the bucks give up giannis and 10 for 1.

04 May 2016 13:48:04

Chicago trade: Butler

Milwaukee trade: Middleton, Vaughn, 16 and 17 first round picks, 2018 second round pick

Milwaukee get the last player to their puzzle and won't have a need for those picks because they won't need any more youth

chicago get younger and have more first round picks for younger players while letting rose take the lead role again in chicago and having middleton as a brilliant catch and shoot fit there.

04 May 2016 18:50:49
Butler is not worth that much, efficiency is almost exact to Middleton....

04 May 2016 13:43:18

Bulls get Millsap, Shabbaz

Hawks get Dieng, Gibson, McDermott and 2nd Bulls

Wolves get Portis, Dunleavy, 14th pick

Bulls 2016-17

Bulls sign Joe Johnson, DJ Augustine
resign Joakim Noah





Wiggins-J. Brown (5th)
Portis-Maker (14th)

04 May 2016 13:40:35

Lakers give: Russell, Randle, Lou williams

Chicago give: Butler, McDermott, Portis

lakers get a proven star that will help attract free agents while maintaining youth in still having clarkson, nance, mcdermott, portis

Chicago get young players that show promise to revamp the roster.

04 May 2016 14:45:22
Take out Portis and McDermott. They would probably want the top three pick assuming lakers keep it instead of Randle and Williams.

04 May 2016 15:55:16
The Bulls wouldn't want to give up their last 2 draft picks if they are rebuilding. They want to develop them.

04 May 2016 13:32:43

CHI trade: Jimmy butler

DET trade: KCP, Stanley Johnson, #18 pick, 2017 first pick

Not saying this would happen but would be a good move for both teams
chicago getting value back for jimmy who is clashing with teammates
detroit taking that big step necessary to start becoming a top team with butler, drummond, jackson and good role players.

04 May 2016 15:53:59
But they don't have good role players. They have a good 5 maybe 6 man rotation and the rest aren't that good. doing this really ruins the rest of their team.

04 May 2016 16:10:23
I would do this in a heartbeat for DET considering after next year KCP will be making Butler money buy these contracts don't match up. Would have to throw in Meeks and a non-guaranteed guy like Anthony.

04 May 2016 12:10:41

lose: 1rnd pic Nets16/ swap17/ nets pic 18/ A Johnson
rec: J Butler

Boston receives a star without giving up core players.
They can do a sign and trade K Durant for the 2019 Memphis pick

lose Young and Lopez
get: return swap possibility 2017 with Boston and 2018 pick+ Hawes+ Johnson

they can tank and start rebuilding

lose:Kaminsky+ Lamb
get: B Lopez

It's difficult for them, to atract a star player. they can resign Batum a try to go to the second round in the playoffs

lose: J Butler
get: Nets pic 2016+ Kaminski + Lamb+ Young

the Bulls can have a quick rebuilding proces.

04 May 2016 13:10:52
Terrible deal for the Nets.

04 May 2016 13:49:59
boston would only do this is they were certain to get durant.

03 May 2016 19:53:31
Wolves - Bulls - Rockets

Wolves get Gibson and Ariza

Bulls get Shabbaz

Rockets get Bjelica and 14th pick.

03 May 2016 19:20:20
Bulls - Jazz

Bulls get Favors, Hood, Burke and pick


Jazz get Butler, Dunleavy


03 May 2016 21:38:00
Not enough for Butler, pick is too high in the draft. If it was 4-6, then it may be a bit more reasonable.

03 May 2016 23:29:35
If i change Burke with Exum, would it be more reasonable?

04 May 2016 00:42:37
no this is fine, someone is overvaluing butler.

04 May 2016 03:20:42
If we knew what Exum was it would help. Missing him for the year makes it more difficult to say yes.

03 May 2016 18:55:08
Lakers dream offseason: (Not going to happen)

Lakers trade: Ingram, Randle, and Clarkson
Bulls trade: Jimmy Butler

Stretch Nick Young (now have $65 mil in cap space
Sign KD and Horford to a max ($19 mil left)
Sign Deng 3yr/ $18 mil ($13 mil left)
Sign Pau Gasol 3yr/ $27 mil ($4 mil left)
Resign Black 2yr/ $4 mil ($2 mil left)
Resign Huertas 2yr/ $4 mil (0 left)

PG: Russell/ Huertas
SG: Butler/ Williams
SF: Durant/ Deng
PF: Gasol/ Nance
C: Horford/ Black.

03 May 2016 19:08:40
Daniel, I personally challenge you, for the sake of us all, to come up with a dream scenario for another team other than the Lakers. Please.

How about the Nets? Or Utah?


03 May 2016 20:39:02
Nets should take on a asik for pick and trade Lopez somewhere like to Boston for there pick back.

03 May 2016 20:50:19
Don't think that Danny would trade this years pick for Brook.

03 May 2016 20:58:18
Might, might not but they would be a better team with brook. Boston not a free agency destination. Never said this year pick anyways.

03 May 2016 21:17:13
Nets dream offseason is easy:

Get on their knees and beg for Boston to give them back all their draft picks LOL.

03 May 2016 21:34:54
To say the Celtic's aren't a FA destination is stupid. That reason is they haven't had money for FA . it was 1996 the last time the Celtic's had money. Ask Greg Monroe if he thought Milwaukee was a FA destination.

03 May 2016 17:03:52
Boston: M Gasol+ J Butler
Memphis: Olynyk+ Smart+Hunter+ 1rnd pic Memphis 19

Chicago:Johnson+ Crowder+ 1rnd pic Nets 16+ swap rights Nets 17+ Nets pic 2018

Boston signs Durant

c: M Gasol
PF: Sullinger
SF: Durant
SG: J Butler
PG: I Thomas.

03 May 2016 18:07:01
I don't think you can trade swap rights. But the rest is ok.

03 May 2016 18:09:15
I can't see Danny trading his whole treasure chest before knowing that we get Durant. Because if we just get Gasol and Butler and lose all of our depth I don't see this being a title contender. The defense would be great but we would still need more. In my opinion.

03 May 2016 20:54:34
You have 1 superstar, 3 stars and not much else.

03 May 2016 23:32:01
@NBA, well they can attract vets who wants to win and play as their bench. if that's the core, they are quite formidable.

03 May 2016 16:54:49
Chicago trade Butler to Magic
Magic trade Hezonja, Payton, Fournier to Bulls.

Bulls trade Rose, Dunleavy, Gibson to Bucks
Bucks trade Parker to Bulls.

Bulls trade Mirotic Snell Moore to Bucks.
Bucks trade Middleton to Bulls.

Bulls draft Ellis

Sign Noah,

PG Payton Holiday
SG Middleton Fournier
SF Hezonja Mcdermott
PF Parker Ellis
C Noah Portis Felicio

03 May 2016 18:05:34
Way too little for Middleton.

03 May 2016 18:10:10
Those trades don't get you Parker and Middleton.

03 May 2016 18:26:20
1st, why would you do 2 separate trades with the same teams?

And 2nd, why in earth would Milwaukee do either of those trades?

03 May 2016 22:10:39
Those Are both horrible for bucks didn't even notice the parker deal smh.

02 May 2016 15:16:50
Chicago Bulls some kind of a rebuild


Bulls-- J Lamb, C Zeller, 2nd rd pick

Hornets-- T Gibson, T Snell

--Bulls get a young wing player who could give them some 3 point shooting and getting a nice big man while Hornets seem in win now mode get a veteran banger inside which they lack.


Bulls-- future protected 2nd round pick

Timberwolves-- Mike Dunleavy, 48th pick

--this is some kind of a salary dump. Wolves wouldn't have a problem taking on that 5mil contract of Mike. He is a Thibs player and a veteran. Gives intensity and shooting that could help that young team grow somehow.

--let P Gasol walk

--Bulls after the trades have around 60mil in cap and around 30 to spend. Correct me if i'm wrong

--resign J Noah 4yrs/ 45mil
--sign A Afflalo 3yrs/ 32mil
--sign A Jefferson 2yrs/ 20mil

why this signings

Afflalo provides the 3 and D presence on the backcourt and will be a good defensive tandem with Butler

Jefferson will provide inside scoring that Noah lacks

they still have MLE, Room exception and bi-annual exception + TPE on K Hinrich trade

MLE sign a back up PG (maybe M Chalmers)
use room exception for E Moore

Chicago 2016-17
- not that flashy but this is some kind of a refresh

pg Rose-Chalmers-Moore
sg Afflalo-Lamb
sf Butler-McDermott
pf Portis-Mirotic-Bairstow
ce Noah-Jefferson-Zeller

-- defense and offense i think is right there with this team.

02 May 2016 15:32:40
i forgot Bulls also draft D Valentine to add wing depth.

02 May 2016 21:17:54
I don't think Hornets do that trade. Zeller is just 23 years old and just played his 3rd season. He still has potential and could develop into a quality Center, never an all star though.

02 May 2016 14:29:42
Bulls: (Monday edition)

Let go: Gasol, Brooks
Resign: Noah: 10m/ yr, Moore 3m/ yr
Pick up options: Felicio and Bairstow
Draft: Denzel Valentine, Perry Ellis

Bulls-Bucks *assuming they trade away Monroe this summer*

Bulls: Taj Gibson, Nikola Mirotic, Sac 2016 pick (maybe additional '17 pick if needed)
Bucks: Kris Middleton

Rose/ Moore/ Holiday
Middleton/ McDermott/ Dunleavy
Butler/ Valentine/ Snell
Portis/ Ellis/ (FA vet)
Noah/ Felicio/ Bairstow.

02 May 2016 15:52:03
Middelton and Butler would be awesome at the 2&3. Both great two way players.

02 May 2016 10:53:58
cle-Orl- Hou

Cle: Vucevic+ 2016 2rnd pick Chicago
Orl: J Harden+ K Love
Hou: Oladipo+ Ilyasova+ A Gordon+ 1rnd pic Orlando (D Murray)

02 May 2016 12:37:20
Cleveland Says No But Magic And Rockets Say Yes.

02 May 2016 14:44:39
of course Magic say yes because 2 stars are going their way.

02 May 2016 15:18:59
I don't think this is a bad deal for Cleveland
Vucevic can play after LBJ and Irving and i think he and T Thompson could be a good combo.

02 May 2016 04:07:42
get:jimmy butler, Marcus smart, rights to sullinger (rfa), hunter and mickey along with brooklyn 2018 pick, Chicagos pick, 2nd rounders from boston

Chicago gets george hill, jae crowder, jerebko, Dallas pick, bostons pick

boston gets george
signs Horford and Durant
keeps pick this year
signs jamal crawford biannual

Thomas/ rozier
Bradley/ crawford
george/ turner
durant/ pick (Simmons or Ingram hopefully)
Horford/ olynyk/ zeller

this addresses the comments before about indy. They get better with this trade and get a coveted pick. Chicago gets a lot of pieces for butler as well. Who says no and why THIS TIME?

02 May 2016 05:11:00
Bulls would want the nets pick.

02 May 2016 09:54:41
I don't like trading P George as a Pacers fan, but we get a lot in return.
But i think Chicago wants more.
Maybe If the Bulls get the Nets pick and Indy the 2018 sacramento pick.

03 May 2016 12:26:58
Celtic's give waaaay yay too much . Smart, Crowder, Sullinger, hunter, Mickey, Jerebko, 2016 and 2018 1st from Brooklyn, 2016 1st from Dallas, 2016 1st from. Boston and 2md rounders. all for just George. NO WAY.

04 May 2016 05:35:03
It doesn't matter what they give up, look at the team that comes out. This'll Def come out in the east and beat gsw.

And they don't give up this year's pick. Although I agree. It's too much for george. Brooklyn pick has to go to Chicago instead of Indiana. But I think that it's the way to go. Bradley is indispensable as is thomas. Everyone else can go. Bradley is the key to getting past gsw. If you assemble a team where he just has to worry about defense, he will shut the opposing guard down.

02 May 2016 03:26:13
Lakers/ Bulls/ Sixers

Lakers trade: #2 pick, Randle, Clarkson
lakers receive: Jimmy Butler

Lakers sign Nicolas Batum and Whiteside

PG: Russell
SG: Butler

Bulls receive: #2 pick, Randle, Clarkson, Noel

Draft Ingram and sign Harrison Barnes

PG: Clarkson
SG: Barnes
SF: Ingram
PF: Randle
C: Noel

Sixers trade: Noel
Sixers receive: Rose

Sign Bazemore

PG: Rose
SG: Bazemore
SF: Simmons
PF: Okafor
C: Embiid.

02 May 2016 13:27:00
No sign and trades in draft day.

02 May 2016 15:52:44
Please stop trying to send Rose to the Sixers. He's a declining player who wants and increasing long term contract. He's a potential franchise wrecker.

01 May 2016 18:35:40
Bucks offseason

Trade Monroe, MCW, S&T Plumlee to Kings for Marco Belineli and Cousins

Trade Middleton, Bayless S&T, JOB to Bulls for Butler, Brooks s&t
Sign Ryan Anderson

Resign Novak
Resign Vasquez

Antetokoumpo, Brooks, Ennis
Butler, Vasquez
Parker, Vaughn, Belineli
Anderson, Novak
Cousins, Henson
This is a dream team for bucks that will never happen!

01 May 2016 18:50:38
pathetic return for cousins.

01 May 2016 18:50:47
Keep dreaming, try Antetokounmpo and Parker for cousin.

01 May 2016 19:00:38
Antetokoumpo is untouchable.

01 May 2016 20:10:24
Y would you even want cousins.

01 May 2016 21:47:52
Antetokoumpo can be untouchable, but somehow a guy who was considered untouchable until this week when the Kings said they will at least explore the trade market, can now be had for 2 undersireable pieces? You think you get rid of MCW, who is at best a backup pg, and Monroe, who is just an overpaid center, gets you Cousins?

You don't get stars without trading stars or big prospects. You did neither.
