Suns: J Butler

Chi: A Davis

No: Bledsoe+ Portis+ Bender+ 1rnd pick Miami 18+21+ 1rnd pick 17 Chicago+ 1rnd pick Sac 17 (top 7 protected)

27 Sep 2016 08:47:36
Bulls trade spurs

Bulls get lamarcus Aldridge

Spurs get gibson, portis, and mcdermout.

27 Sep 2016 12:13:54
That would be a great trade
But the Bulls should also give the Sac picks and Valentine

LMA is a great PF, maybe the best in the league.
He would make the Bulls contenders.

It looks a stupid trade for the Spurs.
But they can't beat the Warriors the next two years.
So they could better trade an aging player for young assets.
I like Portis, i think he could become an all star.

27 Sep 2016 13:19:00
I say no only because of the design of the Spurs current roster, which is a win now one. Gasol, Parker, and Ginobili don't have enough good years left to wait for Portis and McDermott to fully develop into the very good players they're going to be.

This may be a next offseason trade if the Spurs find themselves on the losing end of the Warriors rivalry this year.

26 Sep 2016 13:09:06
Bulls get Nance jr. Xianlian J Mozgov
Lakers get Butler Jimmy.

26 Sep 2016 14:38:21
Just stop. Horrible offer for the Bulls.

26 Sep 2016 15:13:35
nothing to read here. Move along.

Minnesota Timberwolves Gets: Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson

Chicago Bulls Get: Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine

Chicago Trades Rondo+Picks to Suns, for Tyler Ulis Or to Men for Wade Baldwin IV.

21 Sep 2016 15:37:46
Why would the Suns want rondo? So when they play the Kings we can see 5 PGs play against 5 centers?

22 Sep 2016 07:13:29
Some choice deserve okc. we clearly how to know how they would like to play with 3 players but to design 5 its difficult . okc.

And when KD sign outside the door is open all over the okc
Isn't is?

22 Sep 2016 08:29:28
Okc sold out in progress.

21 Sep 2016 06:05:11
Minnesota Timberwolves Gets: Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson

Chicago Bulls Get: Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine

Chicago Trades Rondo+Picks to Suns, for Tyler Ulis Or to Men for Wade Baldwin IV.

19 Sep 2016 13:24:05

Tor: Okafor

Philly: J Butler

Chicago: C Anthony+ 1rnd pick Tor+ 1rnd pick Clippers

NY: D Carroll+ Mirotic+ 1rnd pick LA+ 1rnd pikc Philly (or Sacramento swap)

Toronto receive a potental good bigg man without giving up much. VC and Okafor could work, if not, they only give up two non lotery draft picks.

Chicago gives up a talented player, but i do think C Anthony is a better fit in that Chicago team. Wit or without Butler, they're only playing for a first round exit. So they can trade him for Anthony and the two picks give them some future building assets.

Philly receives a star and a great defender.

NY can rebuilt next draft, they will have three lottery picks in a deep draft. Porzingis+ three lottery picks in a great city will free agents consider signing with the Knicks.

19 Sep 2016 15:00:50
Sixes come out with robbery.

19 Sep 2016 15:30:06
Sixers give: Okafor+ 1rnd pick LA+ 1rnd pick Philly (or sac)
That's two lottery picks. That's not a robbery.

19 Sep 2016 16:42:38
If I'm Chicago I say no since Melo is already a downgrade compared to Butler then you factor in their age and it isn't that close. I do however think Melo's shooting is better fit for team currently but I don't see how they'll be better for the future with two late firsts and Melo vs. Butler who is still young and under contract for a few more years. I don't see Jonas and Okafor working out at all. They just drafted Poeltl too.

19 Sep 2016 20:06:02
No way from T. O.

21 Sep 2016 11:49:56
Someone is waiting in the Lakers Los Angeles . special arrival from chicago.

Asking to become the new captain leading the team rebuilt. and many season.

19 Sep 2016 04:28:26
Bulls trade Jimmy Butler, Nikola Mirotic Tony Snell and return the SAC pick.

Kings trade: Demarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay

19 Sep 2016 13:47:28
The value is fair, but Chicago should keep butler if they trade for Cousins.

It's a great trade for Sacramento.

19 Sep 2016 20:17:24
I think Kings are in rebuild mode if they trade cousins. Butler doesn't help a rebuild from scratch. The Kings need picks, and young guys.

21 Sep 2016 15:15:49
A Yellow jersey for Jimmy Butler this year.
Ask to be the captain of the Lakers new era, what else?, some detail clearly shows a favorable opinion to see that realized soon .


18 Sep 2016 17:52:35
Raptors and bulls

Raps trade JV Patterson Ross and Wright and draft picks

Bull trade Jimmy Butler and Lopez

Raptors lineup

Lowry/ Joesph
DeRozan/ Powell
Butler/ Carroll
Carroll/ sullinger
Lopez/ and the rookie.

18 Sep 2016 18:30:04
That's a bad trade for Toronto. Derozan and butler can't short three pointers.

Oh and Chicago could get a better deal for butler. ☺.

19 Sep 2016 20:10:05
JV > Lopez
Ross, Patterson, Wright, DP's > Butler

How about
Patterson, Nogueira
Mirotic, McDermott

if you want one sided trades.

20 Sep 2016 02:32:54
Ross, Patterson, Wright and picks better than Butler? Good one RapsFan.

21 Sep 2016 12:01:01
A Team rebuilding in the West Coast clearly say .
Our future in L. A will be built with Derozan Demar as leading . long way contract

In progress. for this season

The contract you've didn't see comming

Lakers head

15 Sep 2016 21:57:39
Give me your best Chicago Bulls trade.

15 Sep 2016 22:29:24
Bulls - Lopez.

Nets - Rondo, Mcdermott, bulls 2018 1st.

15 Sep 2016 22:34:29
Nikola Mirotic, Doug McDermott, and 2017 1st for Nerlens Noel.

16 Sep 2016 00:44:19

Sixers do that in a heartbeat. Bulls not so much.

21 Sep 2016 13:21:02
Lebron rondo.

14 Sep 2016 21:01:51
Jazz - Butler, Wall, Valentine.

Bulls - Hayward, Favors.

Wizards - Exum, Burks, Portis, Jazz 2017 and 2019 1st.

Wall/ Hill
Hood/ Valentine
Butler/ Johnson
Lyles/ Diaw
Gobert/ Withey

Defensively the best team in the league, with scorers and a deep bench.

14 Sep 2016 22:26:36
Hayward is going to be a free agent next year.
He's a good fit in Chicago, but Butler is the better player and on a better contract.
So no way Chicago give up butler and two young talents.

Maybe they do

Chi:Hayward and Favors
Utah; J Butler and Gibson.

14 Sep 2016 23:32:36
Wizards pass. Exum wasn't impressive in his first year, Burks is usually hurt, Portis is nice but Morris is already there and those picks would be in the 20s looking at that jazz roster.

13 Sep 2016 17:50:47
Cavs get - Gibson, Wade, Lopez, Bellinelli.
Cavs give - Love, 2019 1st, Thompson, Shrumpert.

Bulls get - Love, Bogdanovic.
Bulls give - Wade, Gibson, Mcdermott.

Nets get - Cavs 2019 1st, Hornets 2018 1st, Shrumpert, 2nd rounder.
Nets give - Lopez, Bogdanovic.

Hornets get - Thompson, McDermott.
Hornets give - Hibbert, Bellinelli, 2018 1st, 2nd round pick.

Cavs improve depth and defense while getting Wade to cleavland.

Bulls get a 2nd all star and a lights out shooters to space the floor.

Nets land 2 1st which is a pretty big deal. Shrumpert is filler. also a 2nd rounder.

Hornets add a starting center who fits, and another shooter.

13 Sep 2016 19:03:57
Where is Hibbert going?

13 Sep 2016 21:03:37

14 Sep 2016 05:53:11
Those pics suck! Nets pass.

14 Sep 2016 14:46:33
Don't like it for Cavs or Nets. I like it a lot for the Bulls and its alright for Hornets. I know Lebron and Wade are boys but he isn't a good fit for that team in Cleveland due to his lack of shooting especially if Cavs moved Love. That Cleveland teams starting lineup would have no real perimeter threat outside of Irving which would kill spacing and make it even more difficult for the other 4 to be productive.

Lopez is one of top Centers in the league and those picks are trash. They won't help anytime soon and aren't guaranteed to be any good once they finally get them.

12 Sep 2016 22:04:27
Bulls - Okafor, Saric, 2019 1st.

Sixers - Thompson.

Warriors, Butler, McDermott.

12 Sep 2016 22:31:58
Jimmy Butler wouldn't be a good fit.

12 Sep 2016 23:21:52
Why not? He's a way better defender who could be put on Lebron and you still have Curry/ Durant to space the floor. McDermott fills the need for a backup 3 who can shoot.

13 Sep 2016 01:32:57
Bulls say no really quick.

14 Sep 2016 14:21:11
Thonpsons going no where.

17 Sep 2016 06:22:24
He's not a bad fit but he's not that good of fit, Butler needs the ball and is an average 3pt shooter, while I love his defense I'm concerned about the Offensive fit whereas Thompson is a great 3pt shooter and does a lot off the ball movement coming off screens to get his shots instead of having to create for himself, not completely sure that Jimmy Butler would fit in that role.

12 Sep 2016 18:29:48
If the Butler-Wade Combo doesn't work
and if KD doesn't fit the splash brothers

Boston: KD
GS: J Butler+ M Smart
Chi: Crowder+ 1rnd pick Nets 17 and 18.

12 Sep 2016 21:32:20
Not a great return for GS. If I were them I'd prefer dealing directly with Boston and getting Crowder and the draft picks. Crowder is a great role player and the draft picks will give cheap top prospects who the Warriors won't need to be ultra productive right away but can develop into the next generation for the Warriors.

13 Sep 2016 03:51:17
A little more to GS but I like the bones of this trade.

14 Sep 2016 06:10:28
Chi is getting way to much.

10 Sep 2016 08:10:14

Pistons : Jimmy Butler

PG Jackson
SG Butler
SF Johnson
PF Morris
CE Drummond

Chicago : Paul Millsap, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Korver, 1st round pick Pistons, 2nd round pick Pistons

PG Rondo-Grant
SG Wade-Korver
SF KCP-McDermott
PF Millsap-Mirotic
CE Lopez-Portis

Hawks : Tony Snell, Tobias Harris, Taj Gibson

PG Shroeder
SG Bazemore
SF Harris
PF Gibson
CE Howard.

10 Sep 2016 11:55:03
Millsap would be a great fit for Chicago, the problem is he's 31 and a free agent next year. Butler is on a cheap contract for three more years.

The Hawks should also give the combo Millsap-D12 a chance, they're going to be good.

12 Sep 2016 22:39:56
So, KCP, Harris, one 1st pick and one 2nd pick for Jimmy Butler? No thanks!!

10 Sep 2016 07:37:20

Celtics : Jimmy Butler

Bulls : Chandler Parsons, 2017 Nets 1st round pick

Grizzlies : Jae Crowder, Kelly Olynyk, 2019 Celtics 1st round pick.

10 Sep 2016 11:52:56
Don't think Parsons is worth that much especially when he can't stay healthy. Think that's a good price on Butler tho for Boston ( not sure why Grizzlies need to be a part of trade)

10 Sep 2016 11:56:26
i like this idea
A healty Parsons would be a good fit in Chicago, they need a SF, that can shoot the three.

12 Sep 2016 03:04:12
Pistons lose 2 starters for butler who can't shoot. Doesn't make sense. I love jimmy but idk if this makes Detroit much better if at all.

10 Sep 2016 04:16:05

New York : Danilo Gallinari, Will Barton, 2016 1st round pick from Nuggets

Chicago : Carmelo Anthony, Jusuf Nurkic

Nuggets : Jimmy Butler.

10 Sep 2016 11:57:52
New York should get a better return.

New York: Jokic+ Murray+ Gallinari.

10 Sep 2016 13:11:42
Gasupo are you Kidding? that deal is fair no need to gur the ENTIRE roster including the potential superstar Jokic and maybe Murray.

10 Sep 2016 13:16:50
Why would the Knicks trade C Anthony for that?
If they don't get a good price for him, they better keep him.

10 Sep 2016 18:17:02
Kncisk won't trade anthony for that. Especially not Danilo. Guy is guaranteed to miss at least a third of the season. Jokic is a potential superstar? seems a bit of a stretch there.

The nuggets wouldn't be involved if this is proposed. the knicks can add a bit more to make up for nurkic. especially seeing as the bulls don't need a center, they have a very reliable one in lopez.

11 Sep 2016 02:32:44
Jokic had a better year then Porzingis.

09 Sep 2016 16:36:45
Bucks- Chi

Chi: Monroe+ Middleton
Bucks: J Butler+ R Lopez

Middelton is a better fit in Chicago, he can shoot the three.
Monroe can restart in Chicago and if it doesn't work, they let him walk and go after another free agent.

Butler is close to a top 10 player, so he's an upgrade over Middleton and R Lopez is a better Defender than Monroe, He could cover Parker's weak defensive play.

09 Sep 2016 17:07:30

The Bulls can get considerably more. He bucks would have to include Parker as well. Then it's a fair deal.

09 Sep 2016 17:53:17
The could have had more for Butler, but that was before they signed Wade and Rondo. They want to win now and in that case Middleton is a great fit for them.

09 Sep 2016 17:56:18
Can't wait for Trillhouse84 to step in and say that the Bucks say no.

09 Sep 2016 18:40:37
Just because they signed wade and rondo doesn't mean that butlers value plummets. There are still 20+ teams that would love to have him. There would be a bidding war for him. They won't just settle for a similar but inferior player, and a downgrade at center to unload him.

09 Sep 2016 20:00:52
Gasupo, your thinking is moronic. Seriously. So a less talented player on both pets make them more able to win now? Just stop.

10 Sep 2016 00:55:48
Give the Bulls 2 1st round picks on that case but still might say no. How about remove Monroe and Lopez place in Jabari and Middleton for Butler and someone else maybe Snell or Gibson?

10 Sep 2016 03:51:04
Could Middleton and Monroe and a future first rd pick and a future 2 2nd rd pick work for Butler and Lopez.

10 Sep 2016 07:47:20
No mancerei, no where near enough. Middleton and Parker would be a minimum for butler.

24 Sep 2016 14:33:01
Thompson to chicago a better choice for the bulls.

09 Sep 2016 13:44:08
Thunder Blow up if we aren't doing well.

Thunder - Booker, Bender, Chandler.

Suns - Westbrook, Butler.

Bulls - Kanter, Bledsoe, Suns 2018 1st, Roberson.


Compliments each other well with Defense, Slashing and Outside scoring.


Two great shooters and the best defensive backcourt in the league with knight coming off the bench plus one more free agent signing (Millsap, Hayward) this team could be really good.


This team has NO shooting, but if Valentine were to steal wades starting role then that wouldn't Be as bad, overall they get a Top 30 player when healthy in Bledsoe and 2 decent starters in Kanter/ Roberson, and a 1st never hurts.

09 Sep 2016 14:29:03
Not enough for the Bulls and I'm also kind of surprised as a Thunder fan you wouldn't want more than that for a top 5 player in the league. Suns are making off like bandits.

09 Sep 2016 14:40:39
I honestly just want to contend again even if that means postponing it for 5 or more years.

09 Sep 2016 14:50:58
I don't like it for the Bulls, they need shooters.

The Thunder should also get Knight in this trade, But i believe in Bender (Next Dirk) and Booker is a talent, so that's good value for Westbrook

I would love to see that Suns team.

09 Sep 2016 14:54:01
I'm really high on Booker, and Bender is nice. Maybe If this were draft night and the suns threw in a top 5 pick.

09 Sep 2016 15:31:07
Wait until you see my next one. it's totally far fetched but still.

08 Sep 2016 17:08:10
Wolves: Cousins/ Butler/ J Wall

Sac: KA Towns/ Dunn/ Pekovic

Wizards: Rubio/ Labisierre/ Papagiannis/ Dieng

Bulls: Wiggins/ Garnett

Ok, not going to happen, but who win this trade?

08 Sep 2016 19:05:31
I see the Wizards as the loser in this deal, but for a far out fantasy trade, it's not that bad.

08 Sep 2016 19:11:14
Sacramento wins this trade big. I'd take towns over cousins in a heartbeat. And the Wizards are the big losers here, they don't get anything that I would consider a centerpiece of a trade for an all star.

09 Sep 2016 01:15:28
Wolves should not do this stay the course you already have your 2 stars in towns and Wiggins if they're not starts now they're potential are through the roof.

09 Sep 2016 15:22:45
A lot of big names moving. Kings are big winners and wizards big losers and Twolves fast forward a few years and get a lot better.

if I'm Twolves I'm not trading Towns for any single player even straight up for Cousins. Factoring in his contract, position and numbers he put up as a rookie There are very few players I'd want to build a team around and especially if I could pair him with a more established star so he doesn't have to do heavy lifting for a contender right away. I could imagine a deal centered around a Wiggins and butler swap. I think it's great move for Twolves since he is still relatively young and no guarantee Wiggins reaches potential plus butler with playoff experience can be that star mentor to towns and other young guys. I think Twolves would need to add some more maybe shabazz and pick since bulls don't seem like they want to rebuild just yet.

I think a trade for wall is more of a stretch but still plausible. I'd trade Rubio for whatever I could get from kings then trade that stuff Dunn and LaVine for Wall and Porter jr.

Twolves roster of wall, butler and towns could be a solid playoff team and gain valuable experience then next year they could potentially attract a major free agent (towns on rookie deal and wall and butler on old maxes) and guys to fill out the bench and be a true championship contender for as long as those three want to stay together.

03 Sep 2016 10:09:36

receive: Cousins+Gay
Trade: Butler+Gibson+ return sac pick

Receive: Butler+Gibson
Trade: Smart+ Brown+A Johnson+ 1rnd pick Nets

Receive: A Johnson+ 1rnd pick Nets (Boston swap) + Return sac pick 17 and 19
trade: D Cousins+Gay

Receive: J Brown+ Smart
Trade: Sac picks 17 (swap) and 19.

03 Sep 2016 12:25:23
Since Johnson and Gibson are pretty much a wash, the deal then becomes Butler for three lottery picks. That won't happen.

03 Sep 2016 13:55:09
Interesting for philly but smart and brown are both poor shooters. They aren't exactly needed here. That being said you can't say no to that.

03 Sep 2016 13:58:24
Leave Chicago out of it. Do the rest.

03 Sep 2016 14:17:05
Comme on

the Cetics receive a top 20 player that's good in both ends

Chicago receives a top two center

Philly receive two young players and can start winning and propbly make the playoffs in a few years

And sacramento has a future again. The Nets pick and their own pick are going to be good next year.

03 Sep 2016 15:38:56
Celtics would do that deal, Supercollider.

03 Sep 2016 18:59:30
Philly get's a little more and celtics get a little less considering what they both offer. maybe Philly would trade Noel for olynyk and a first.

05 Sep 2016 05:05:39
I'm sorry. But no chance the sixers get that. They literally give up nothing in the swap and a pick 3 years away. And gain this years third and smart. They keep their own picks.

On top, I don't believe you can trade a pick swap. You can only trade the resulting pick.

You have it as the sixers keep their pick in the 2017 draft and merely give up the option to swap. That, which likely is worthless given this years expected standings. and a pick 3 years away. I love the tre is like, oh we need to think about it but likely yes. Get out of here. That's absurd.
