Trade 1:
Randle and a top 10 protected first round in 17 or 18 to Chicago

Butler to the lakers

Trade 2:
Larry Nance, ryan kelly and a second round pick to the t-wolves for Gorgui Dieng. This trade only happens if Robert Upshaw doesn't make the team somehow

Sign LA
Sign Andrew Bynum
Resign Ed Davis

Lineup looks like
PG: Russell, Clarkson
SG: Bryant, Young
SF: Butler, Brown
PF: Aldridge, Davis
C: Upshaw/dieng, Bynum

29 Jun 2015 17:10:45
the first trade SUCKS

29 Jun 2015 18:52:59
Bulls aren't letting Butler go. be real

29 Jun 2015 19:01:28
Omg I completely forgot about bynum, you wanna know why, he doesn't play anymore! and upshaw wouldn't start. And btw the salary cap is 67 mil not 100mil.

29 Jun 2015 19:07:01
Why would the Lakers trade randle for Jimmy buttler when buttler can just sign with the lakers

29 Jun 2015 15:51:32
Ok, this is a stretch, but it would be cool to see it happen.

If Melo continues to become displeased with the way Phil Jackson is constructing the Knicks while they continue to miss out on the best free agents, he could demand a trade.

Not many teams would take that hefty contract for a pre-madonna, but the Bulls would because they are in a "win now" mode and need to take a chance. So,


Bulls Get: Carmelo Anthony

Knicks Get: Eric Gordon, Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott, 2 First Rounders (Bulls 2016 & Eventual Protected Kings pick that Bulls own)

Pelicans Get: Joakim Noah

BULLS get the superstar potential and scoring in the playoffs that they need.

Resign Dunleavy (Vet Min)
Resign Hinrich (Vet Min)
Sign Jameer Nelson (Vet Min)
Sign Ryan Hollins (Vet Min)
Sign Dahntay Jones (Vet Min)

Next they could try to sign David West to play PF at a reduced priced for a championship contender. This would keep Mirotic as a spark off the bench and give Portis time to develop.


KNICKS get rid of a whining Melo and get a fresh start. Jackson plans to build trough the draft, but they are NOT in a complete tank mode. They aquire great 2 way player in Gibson, scoring to replace Melo with Gordon, young sharpshooter w/ potential in McDermott, and picks.

Aquire Ty Lawson from Nuggets
Resign Cole Aldrich
Sign Tobias Harris
Sign Robin Lopez


PELICANS get an upgrade at the center position by letting Asik walk and getting Noah. Still a good defender with great passing skills will complement Davis very nicely.

Resign Norris Cole
Resign Alexis Ajinca
Resign Jimmer Fredette
Resign Jeff Withey
Resign Toney Douglas
Sign Chris Copeland
Sign Leandro Barbosa


(All 3 teams make the playoffs)

29 Jun 2015 16:12:13
U got to throw Knicks more I think more is Noah he's a top 5 center when healthy and Noah brings the type of center tht fits in Phil Jackson's triangle mirotic

Pg Galloway
sg Ellis
sf Tobias harris
Pf mirotic
C noah

29 Jun 2015 17:07:12
Funny u want put together butler melo rose all maxed out. With pau u still think you can add west. Learn the cba before u post. Rose is premodonna with far worse situation than Melo with continuous injuries. Melo did not join them 2 yrs ago, their turmoil with management, bulls situation is not much with cheaper owner. Be happy if Butler resigns

29 Jun 2015 17:14:39
why don't the knicks sign Greg

29 Jun 2015 18:52:30
trade works without West buddy, Kingkobe56, and vet players sign for low amount to win rings if you have watch the NBA in the last 5 years. Management turmoil is gone, They fired Thibs. Butler is no doubt coming back to the Bulls. He is currently what is known as a RESTRICTED free agents, which means they can match and offer, but your a CBA expert. Rose is in a much better position than Melo

29 Jun 2015 18:54:29
I'm a bulls fan and this won't work out. + we just drafted our backup PG in Portis.

29 Jun 2015 19:13:29
nevermind, I meant @boogeeny

27 Jun 2015 15:31:07
Pelicans Offseason

Let Omer Asik walk

Pelicans - Future Protected 1st round
Knicks - Jrue Holiday

Pelicans - Joakim Noah, Doug McDermott
Bulls - Eric Gordon, 2 Future protected 1st Round (NYK & NOP)

Sign Danny Green 3 yr 35 million
Sign Demarre Carrol 4 yr 50 million
Sign KJ McDaniels
Resign Norris Cole, Dante Cunningham

PG - Evans/Cole
SG - Green/McDaniels
SF - Carrol/McDermott
PF - Davis/Anderson/Cunningham
C - Noah/Aijanca

By letting Asik walk and Getting a protected 1st for Jrue Holiday clears enough cap so they can spend money on depth and shooters

27 Jun 2015 04:58:30
Bulls-Raptors trade

Bulls get:
Terrence Ross

Raptors get:
Taj Gibson

Here's why : Raptors need a better starting pf and toughness especially in the playoffs. Bulls have a surplus of bigs especially with bobby portis.


Bulls-Wolves trade

Bulls get:
Kevin Martin

Wolves get:
Taj Gibson

Here's why : Wolves aren't contending soon so martin is better off to a contender. Gibson fits better with towns than pekovic. Bulls need shooting and Martin gives them that. With this trade, re-signing Butler and a healthy Rose, I think they're favorites in the east.

So, which do you guys think is the better proposal?

27 Jun 2015 08:45:14
Then what will Mn with Pek?
TrafeTrade him to who?

27 Jun 2015 09:28:52
Play him off the bench? Maybe facilitate a cousins to lakers trade with pekovic to kings

27 Jun 2015 16:59:59
Wolves don't need another PF, if they do trade Martin, they would want a 1st. Also Gibson is already 30, he wouldn't really be there when the Wolves contend.

And the Wolves aren't really in any position to facilitate traded being over the Cao as they are

27 Jun 2015 19:30:22
Raptors trade is a good one, very nice.

26 Jun 2015 21:22:30

pf. Gasol/Portis

26 Jun 2015 21:55:30
Trade fails clippers can't sign and trade players when over the cap. Clippers absorb more salary than trade put.jackson want Hernangomez to grew with Porzingis in NY.

26 Jun 2015 10:34:16

BULLS get Luol Deng, Mario Chalmers and Chris Andersen

HEAT get future 1st from RAPS and Terrence Ross

RAPTORS get Taj Gibson and Kirk Hinrich

26 Jun 2015 14:38:02

26 Jun 2015 19:02:22

26 Jun 2015 05:23:56
Cj for mcdermott is good but no to the rest

27 Jun 2015 05:56:42

Den gets Joakim Noah

jermy lamb was traded to memphis

27 Jun 2015 16:25:22
scratch that got confused withxall the trades

25 Jun 2015 19:47:19

Need mor for Noah in the Boston Deal

Chi gets DeMar Derozan, 2016 2nd round pick
Tor gets Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott


Chi gets Kenneth Faried
Den gets Joakim Noah, 2016 2nd round pick


*fast paced offense(excluding gasol), yet still maintaining rim protection(need in east)

25 Jun 2015 19:50:15
Not a chance the raptors would do this - yes they need help on the glass but trading an All Star - US Olympian- not even close.

25 Jun 2015 18:01:36

POR gets Mirotic, Gibson and 23rd pick

CHI gets Lamarcus Aldridge

Aldridge is probably not coming back, and for Portland this might be the best they can get back for LA.

This is a great trade for Chicago who gets one of the best power forwards in the league and it might make Jimmy Butler want to sign a longer contract.

25 Jun 2015 18:08:22
Aldridge is a free agent

25 Jun 2015 20:02:42
trade can not be done

25 Jun 2015 22:30:45
It's a sign and trade

27 Jun 2015 06:01:35
You don't say @kiks I know that but its before draft and you can't S&T before draft

25 Jun 2015 06:33:22

NYK - Jimmy Butler & Taj Gibson
CHI - 4th pick & Tim Hardaway Jr

NYK - Spencer Hawes
CHA - 2nd round

NYK - Brendan Hayward ( Waive/Dump Salary )
CLE - Jose Calderon
NYK - Signs - Gervais Vasquez / Jarret Jack or signs Greg Monroe

25 Jun 2015 06:46:30
4th & THJ for Taj &Jimmy? What are you smokin?

25 Jun 2015 12:22:52
Olskool. No clue if you think it's bad for the Knicks or the Bulls. If you say Bulls, you clearly don't follow sports news seeing as butler wants out.

25 Jun 2015 13:21:09
Butler is a free agent, can't be traded for a pick now.

25 Jun 2015 18:34:37
Im a knicks Fan.
But I think it's a fair trade. thanks for the update on him being free agent ( butler ) I should have know that.

All trades I write here is fair and makes sense ( to me )

trading a high pick for a legit star makes sense to me.

I think it helps with both teams.

thanks for the reply guys

24 Jun 2015 19:28:39
Mavericks get Taj Gibson

Bulls get Monta Ellis s&t 5 years $42.5 million. ($8.5 per yr exactly what Gibsons will make next year)

24 Jun 2015 19:49:03
Don't think you can do a 5 year deal in a S&T

24 Jun 2015 20:24:25
yes you can. that's why they do it. new teams can offer 4 years and the current team can offer 5. so the current team signs the 5 year deal then trades to new team so they can get an asset in return

25 Jun 2015 02:08:32
Ellis says no thanks

25 Jun 2015 03:14:29
No your wrong, and S&T deals under the new CBA can only be for the 4yr deal a player can get as a FA
