Knicks are ready for 2019 summer

Bulls get Kanter Noah
Knicks get Lopez Dieng
Mavs get Felicio Wolves Bulls 2nd
Wolves get Asik

Faried Arthur Chandler for Lee Thomas. Saves denver 11 mil

Hardaway for Schroder Atl has rights to swap 2019 1st.


22 Jun 2018 16:22:18
The Wolves, Bulls and Mavs probably all turn that trade down.

22 Jun 2018 16:30:07
Like the nuggets/ hawks deals but hawks wouldn't match hardaway before but it still looks fair with the pick swap option.

22 Jun 2018 22:31:54
So fudget, i'm with this roster, sit zinger all season hawks and knicks should top 5 worst again.

Schroder/ Mudiay/ Burke
Ntilikina/ Dotson/ Baker
Knox/ Chandler/ T. Williams
Faried/ Arthur/ Robinson
Kanter/ Noah/ Porzingis.

21 Jun 2018 14:28:58

Bulls: #2 pick

Kings: Bobby Portis, #7 pick and #22 pick

Bulls draft #2 Luka Doncic
Kings draft #7 Michael Porter Jr.

21 Jun 2018 14:59:32
7 is probably 1 spot to far for the Kings to think about this unless they really like Young, Carter or one of the other guys that could be left at that point.

20 Jun 2018 18:27:26
Bulls go all inn i mean damn the east is trash.

Bulls make big 3 with all players signing close to max

Bulls trade celtics

Celtics get lopez,asik and #7 pick

Bulls get irving

Bulls sign paul george and cousins to max contracts while irving plays out his final yr while bulls hoping he does sign again with bulls.

Bulls let lavine walk
Bulls trade wizards

Wizards get portis and #22 pick

Bulls get #15 pick and draft jerome robinson

Bulls possible line up
J. Robinson
P. George
Bulls can make this happen and i think if irving chases for more money i still think the bulls will be fine moving foward

20 Jun 2018 18:40:45
Why would Boston even think about that?

20 Jun 2018 18:55:30
Boston can't afford to take on salary from non contributing players.

20 Jun 2018 18:55:33
How did nets just rob hornets rubbish just goes down a lot of people think trades need to be equal and that is soo not the damn case.

20 Jun 2018 19:00:44
They would obviously buy out lopez and 1 yr left on asik so idk what u saying by taking contacts next question for our dumb audience.

20 Jun 2018 19:26:30
The Hornets were trying to get out of the luxury and apparently (surprise surprise) everyone hated Dwight. It wasn't a great deal for the Hornets, but it wasn't ridiculously one sided.

You're not getting Irving for the 7th pick. Boston also takes on salary here.

20 Jun 2018 20:04:08
@skrillz702 if celts are pushing limits by signing smart how in the world can they afford to buy out Lopez let alone asik for #7? They don't care about 7 otherwise they would trade assets to get it and shed salary.

21 Jun 2018 21:33:20
It is so hard to read what you write. But that Celtics trade never happens. Ever. It’s just a horrible trade for the Celtics.

20 Jun 2018 17:35:10

Nuggets need cap space.

20 Jun 2018 17:46:54
Im high on knox i want bulls to draft him but asik can't be bought out he's under contract this yr and has player option in which he's for sure signing. And i think knox will be drafted before 14.

20 Jun 2018 09:03:41

Bulls: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and pick #11

Hornets: Bobby Portis, Justin Holiday and #22

Bulls draft
#7 Mo Bamba
#11 Kevin Knox

PG Dunn/ Payne
SG LaVine/ Nwaba
SF MKG/ Valentine (SG/ SF)
PF Markkanen/ Knox (SF/ PF)
C Bamba/ Lopez.

20 Jun 2018 13:24:10
I think this would be a worthwhile move for the Bulls. I'm not sure if those guys will be available at those picks though, but the top 10 is going to be very interesting. There will be quality players at both of those picks however, and they would very likely be able to pull down a big and a wing that are worth it.

20 Jun 2018 14:21:18
I don't think hornets would do it. Portis is still the guy who intentionally fractured the face of one of his teammates and 11 and 22 is a pretty large separation in talent. Holiday isn't anything special. Good player but graham and lamb are about the same maybe better.

20 Jun 2018 16:39:54
No way bamba is still on the board at 7.

20 Jun 2018 17:36:02
MKG is trash.

19 Jun 2018 15:44:58
Kings - Knicks - Wizards

Kings gets:
9th pick (Knicks)
15th pick (Wizards)
37th pick (Bulls via Knicks)

Knicks gets:
2nd pick (Kings)

Wizards gets:

19 Jun 2018 17:48:13
Not getting the #2 overall pick for #9, a second rounder, and two overpaid role players. Sorry knicks.

19 Jun 2018 17:59:54
Jvoug1, Wizards or Kings says no?

19 Jun 2018 18:23:25
Kings say No.

19 Jun 2018 19:20:41
I think the Kings and Wizards both say no.

19 Jun 2018 03:26:15
Bulls trade pelicans

Pelicans get lopez,marrkanen,valentine #7 and #22

Bulls get A.Davis

This trade gives bulls chance to sign another max contract george or James
Then its up to lavine to sign for less to win with bulls.

Starting 5

Bulls could be elite just on the defensive side dunn, james and davis are all good on defense and can score.

For the pelicans they can resign cousins who can play next to marrkanen and now they have draft picks to get gaurds and wings

19 Jun 2018 04:23:05
Davis is basically untouchable.

19 Jun 2018 04:24:15
guarantee boston has a better offer on the table for davis rn.

19 Jun 2018 15:06:47
I actually don't hate this as much as I would have expected. There would obviously need to be more picks thrown in, but the basic structure is actually pretty solid. It would have to be done on draft night, because New Orleans would have to know that the player they want would be available at 7. There are only a couple of guys in this draft that would make sense for this trade, and that's probably Doncic and Porter. Either of them could slide into the Pelicans lineup and it would be a good fit.


This of course would have to be if they don't see Davis staying long-term. After their playoff push this year, I don't see that being a big concern, but like David West pointed out, there are always things going on that we rarely see.

Boston could put together a better package, of course, but I don't know that they would. This one works in both directions, and any accepted combination of players the Celtics move would be more than they would be willing to give I think.

19 Jun 2018 17:27:27
Tell you what, Boston can keep their package, although it would be FAR better than this Chicago package,

18 Jun 2018 21:58:50
Bulls: Asik, Lopez, holiday, 7

Raptors: Derozan

18 Jun 2018 08:46:21

18 Jun 2018 06:13:19
Just stop. If Lakers have a very slim chance to land those 3, Cavs absolutely have zero.

18 Jun 2018 06:22:12
As far as the cap situation it'll be tough but Cavs already have Bron,Lakers tryna get all three

18 Jun 2018 08:39:54
Leonard is going to be traded, because he rather plays in a big market than signing a max. So this would be a one year rental for Cleveland.

18 Jun 2018 03:03:43
Bulls trade clippers

Clippers get lopez.valentine and #22 pick

Bulls get gallinari and #13 pick

18 Jun 2018 11:31:08
Why for clippers?

18 Jun 2018 19:49:56
Clippers owe too much money to make any moves gallanari is owed 42 mil next 2 years.

18 Jun 2018 01:45:57
Bulls trade clippers

Clippers get lopez,valentine and #22pick

Bulls get gallinari and #13 pick

17 Jun 2018 15:36:38
Multiple Kawhi deals:

Just having fun with a couple of deals, let me know which ones, if any, you like.

#1 - To GSW

Kawhi for Klay and Jordan Bell

Kawhi moves to the two, Warriors and Spurs would have to sign either after next season, Spurs get young C, and if healthy, Claw makes Warriors unstoppable.

#2 - To MIA

Kawhi for JJ, Bam and Justise

Miami loves star players, and they get one in Claw. Spurs take on two years of overpaid but solid James Johnson to get two potential building blocks in Winslow and Bam.

#3 - To POR

Kawhi for Harkless, Aminu, Collins, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Admittedly the worst player package, Spurs get only two solid rotation players and a young C with potential, but this is about picks and depth. Blazers tried their best to add a third star last year, but were unsuccessful. This year they get their guy.

4# - To LAC

Kawhi, Mills for Harris, Beverley, Johnson, pick 12

This is a popular rumour, and is one I like. Harris and Beverley are above average players who offer D and versatility. Johnson adds another shooter, and pick 12 brings a good rotation piece. Kawhi goes home, and Mills offers shooting at the 1. Yes, Clips dealt two stars last year, but I don’t believe it was for a rebuild, so adding a superstar while still keeping a lottery pick in this year’s draft is a win.

#5 - To BOS

Kawhi, Mills for Hayward, Brown

Both Claw and Gordon are coming off major injuries, so both teams are taking a risk. When healthy though, Kawhi is the better player, and Brown is needed to get this deal done. Mills salary matches, but also helps soften the blow should Smart not resign, or if Rozier is needed in a separate deal.

#6 - To NYK

Kawhi for Lee, Frank, Dotson, 2018 1st, 2020 1st

Again, not a great player package, but Lee feels like a Spur, Frank and Dejonte are a defensive nightmare and two picks, including 9 brings quality youth. Sounds like Kawhi and his camp have at least a fleeting interest in playing in NY, and him with Zinger would be the foundation for the Knicks turnaround.

#7 - To UTA

Kawhi for Ingles, Thabo, O’Neal and 2018 1st

Claw with Mitchell, and Steiffel would be a scary threesome, though Jazz hesitate as this is the spot Claw is least likely to resign. Spurs get a really solid, underrated player on a good deal in Ingles, an expiring deal in Thabo and two young pieces.

#8 - To LAL

Kawhi for Ingram, Kuzma

Spurs don’t get pick 25, but also don’t take back Deng. Lakers give up two good building blocks, and keep 25 to try to tie to Deng for another trade.

#9 - To PHI

Kawhi for Saric, Covington and pick 10

Philly gets their star if LBJ doesn’t land there. Spurs get an underrated 3 and D guy, and two young quality pieces.

#10 - To CHI

Kawhi, pick 17 for Valentine, Portis, picks 7 and 22

Chicago speeds up the rebuild, adding Kawhi to Lauri and Kris while keeping a first in this year’s draft. Spurs get youth and two picks.

17 Jun 2018 15:54:11
Outside of the Celtics offer here, most of these seem pretty short.

19 Jun 2018 03:27:19
I think the most likely of these in order are LAC, LAL, CHI. You could add PHI to that if you switched Saric with Fultz.

17 Jun 2018 14:52:18

Bulls: Luol Deng and Lonzo Ball

Lakers: Justin Holiday, Kris Dunn and Nikola Mirotic trade exception

Both teams unhappy with their PG's
Lakers get a great on-ball defender, a 3&D wing and unload Deng's contract
Bulls get a younger pg that can make Lauri Markkanen better.

17 Jun 2018 17:26:23
How can a guy that can't shoot help?

16 Jun 2018 02:23:14

18 Jun 2018 15:21:52
So the Bulls nothing in return for their starting PG, both first round picks, our 6th man, and absorb 3 bad contracts? No thanks.

15 Jun 2018 15:17:22
Bulls trade:
Justin Holiday, Cameron Payne, #22

Nuggets trade:
Kenneth Faried, #14.

14 Jun 2018 23:30:29
Bulls Trade: Bobby Portis, (Grant/ Valentine), Omar Asik, #22, and 2019 Protected First Round Pick
Grizzlies Trade: #4, and Parsons

The Grizzlies gain Bobby Portis who could walk into their starting PF position and be a 20/ 10 type player. They would gain a solid role player in either Grant/ Valentine, and could either buyout or cut Asik (he is needed for the money to work) .

We move up to #4 and have our pick from Mo Bamba, Jaren Jackson Jr., Luka Doncic, or MPJ of course depending on who is available. My personal pick would be Mo Bamba at #4.

At #7, we could have two options: trade back, or pick another potential start. At #7 there would easily be Wendell Carter, Mikal Bridges, Miles Bridges, Collin Sexton, Kevin Knox, at the very least. If we trade back, there is a lot of options there. I would keep the pick and get Mikal Bridges from Villanova.

15 Jun 2018 00:54:57
Lol grizzlies say no.

15 Jun 2018 05:48:08
Gordon signing not necessary that’s just throwing money at a player to use money which has hurt several teams in the past (blazers, hawks, etc) also if the sixers aren’t getting Lebron or another big name I don’t think they attach a first round pick to Bayless and I’m not sure they do that anyway they have an abundance of 2nd round picks he is not a terrible contract since he only has 1 year left.

13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
MY MOCK DRAFT - Lottery Teams

1. PHX - Deandre Ayton
2. SAC - Mohammed Bamba
3. ATL - Trae Young
4. MEM - Michael Porter
5. DAL - Marvin Bagley
6. ORL - Collin Sexton
7. CHI - Luka Doncic
8. CLE - Jaren Jackson Jr.
9. NYK - Mikal Bridges
10. PHI - Zhaire Smith
11. CHA - Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
12. LAC - Miles Bridges
13. LAC - Wendell Carter
14. DEN - Kevin Knox
15. WAS - Robert Williams

13 Jun 2018 12:48:40
No way Doncic falls to number 7.

13 Jun 2018 12:49:34
And JJJ to number 8.

13 Jun 2018 13:06:31
Kings won't draft bamba, they already have someone very similar.

13 Jun 2018 13:12:53
With Doncic unwillingness to work out for teams, he could fall a bit, but I don’t see Sexton being drafted before him.

Jackson seems to be rising, not falling in the draft, he won’t last that long.

13 Jun 2018 13:45:45
my thoughts are Bamba could be seen as "raw" generational talent to some, and who's similar WCS? No way

Magic need a PG bad so that's why Sexton, most drafts have them getting Trae but Hawks seem to be high on him

Doncic i couldn't find a right fit, i think he's the 2nd most NBA ready player.

Where do you see JJJ going TBH I don't know too much about him

13 Jun 2018 15:03:36
I think #1 Ayton, #2 JJJ, #3 Bamba, #4 Bagley, #5 Porter, #6 Doncic


#1 Ayton, #2 JJJ, #3 Doncic, #4 Bagley, #5 Bamba, #6 Porter

Doncic is the 2nd most NBA ready player, and can play 1-4 but may slip because he can't workout for NBa teams because he is still in playoffs. But he won't slip past 6 at most.

13 Jun 2018 16:12:24
I would say Doncic is too low, and Sexton is a bit too high, but he really is a wild card. I could see JJJ going around 8 mostly because of the talent level of the people ahead of him. On talent, it's a pretty solid lottery this season. If Doncic starts to slip like that fit won't matter though. Someone will trade up to get him.

13 Jun 2018 15:50:24
I love Jackson. He's an elite defender that can switch on tonalmost anyone without it being a big mismatch. He can do it all on that end. Think Horford, Green or Millsap on that's end. I get the Bamba hype, but If I had to put money on which one willl be the better defender I go JJJ. He's an elite shot blocker and far more versatile wing defender. On offense, he didn't put up huge numbers, but the guy is a great athlete, he can run the floor, he can finish, and he has legitimate 3 point range. He's more of a project on that end, but he can come in day one and be a great role player next to a ball dominant guy that grows in to a great offensive player. I can't see him faking farther than 5 and I think letting him slip past 3 would be a bad idea.

13 Jun 2018 16:36:10
Soxfan, I'd be giddy if Jackson fell to the Cavs. The guy has the chance to be the best bigman in this draft. He's going to be an absolute monster on the defensive end. He's an elite shot blocker that can lock guys down on the perimeter. Plus, he can come in and be a good role player on offense. He's a better shooter than any of the other bigs at the top of this draft. He's also a good finisher. You can plug him in on any playoff team and he can help them from day 1. Honestly, he's the perfect big for Boston to move up and get. He reminds me a lot of Horford.

13 Jun 2018 19:19:52
if luka somehow makes it past memphis, dallas will trade the pick, but memphis could trade out too. porter and young before bagley is absurd. same goes for jackson 8th, if he hits 5th, dallas should be taking calls.

19 Jun 2018 16:56:10
No way the Mavs let Doncic get passed them.

13 Jun 2018 07:13:27
Cavs trade tt and unprotected 2021 pick to Mavs for pick 34

Cavs trade jr, pick 34, future second for pick 59

Cavs trade Hill,2 seconds to bulls for zipser

Trade Rodney hood, cedi Osman, ante zizic, pick 8 for pick 4

Trade Jordan clarckson, Larry nance Jr, pick 59,2024 second for Royce O'Neal pick 21

Resign lebron 5/ 207m

Sign cp3 2/ 54m

Draft Hutchison, Jackson Jr

Chris Paul
Chandler Hutchison
Lebron James
Kevin love
Jaren Jackson Jr

14 Jun 2018 22:56:26
Why would grizz trade fourth puck for eight and crap?

13 Jun 2018 06:27:22
Bulls trade 7th pick robin Lopez and Bobby Portis

Grizzlies 4th Pick Ben McLemore

13 Jun 2018 16:12:02
