Cavs trade Brendan Haywood and a first
Wolves trade Mo Williams
Wolves waive Haywood to join Mavs

alexstorm1


Haywood can't join Mavs, nor would the Wolves waive him, nor would the Cavs pay a first round pick for Williams

Looks like:

Pistons:
-Jefferson
-Felton

Mavs:
-Butler

Sign FA ONeal and Blatch

In addtion I would try to start Aminu to update the defense at the beginning. Let Aminu play 24 min 12 as SF and 12 as PF. Dependend on the opponent let start Aminu/Nowitzki or Parsons/Aminu.
Butler spot up shooter at SG backup. Would work nice with Rondo or Harris at PG.
ONeal can play defense and over the rim for a couple of minutes.
Blatch can play PF or C, dependend on the opponent.
Nice fit.

Detroit doesn't want Felton in any package. No one wants Felton the mavs are stuck with him.

I am kidding but if they think Rondo doesn't fit move him for MCW :

76ers:
-Rondo

Mavs:
-Richardson
-MCW

Never or? : )

What is the point of the Sixers trading for an upcoming UFA?

leuven


Yea I would wait for free agency but if I was going to pick either mcw or rondo to be my point guard, then I will pick mcw because he is a really good player and is much younger. But hopefully we can have both so rondo can mentor mcw to make him better.

go 76ers


Never .

Boy Howdie


Mcw couldn't drop a load in the toilet can't shoot did you see dragic he's got skills or trade rondo ,haris reggie jackson,calderon we miss calderons offense an felton for ed davis.at least calderon willake up our team shooting slump

true mavs 41


Never really liked rondos game to be honest. Not a scorer at all. Great passer but now that he has guys to pass to he's apparently not getting it to work. I would much rather have a younger mcw then an older rondo. So no from sixers.

Mavs are a much better defense team now!

But it have to click! I am confident it they will achieve that point.

First of all Rondo and Nowitzki have to hit big shoots and improve their scoring, both of them - I am confident it will happen - and the team scoring will follow!

Signing ONeal I would try to start:

Rondo, Ellis, Aminu, Villaneuva, Chandler

and have the second unit in:

Barea, Harris, Parsons, Nowitzki, ONeal

But I would be more appreciate to see another spot up shooter like Butler or Green, so if a trade like is possible do it!

The Pistons trade I proposed, sending Felton and if required Jefferson to Detroit to receive Butler and sign ONeal or a Suns trade, including Cavs:

Cavs:
-Smith
-Felton
Suns:
-Haywood
-Joe Harris
-2nd from Mavs
Mavs:
-Plumlee
-Green

Detroit doesn't want Felton in any package. No one in the NBA wants Felton so Mavs slappy you are stuck with him.

It is not a Rondo issue in Dallas. It is an efficiency issue. It was already there, but it becomes highlighted wenn the Mavs doesn't run crazy fast, to accomplish the missing scoring efficiency. So Mavs have to adjust their shooting and finishing. At some point Rondo will also find his confidence to score with his drives like he has done in the past.
Think it is also a bench thing. The second unit have to be able to hold a game or to score again opponents second units.

Updating Mavs it would like to see to add Lavoy Allen, he can hit the ball, defend bigs and rebound. At Pacers he is not an important value, plays only as a backup. With another pick, they can try to get another piece, e.g. a SG.
And add Butler again. In Detroit he doesn't fit well. But he is a spot up shooter from midrange and behind the arc or he can drive to an open basket. Exactly what Mavs need in the second unit.

Mavs:
-Sign FA ONeal
-L.Allen
-Butler

Pacers:
-Smith
-Datome
-2nd from Mavs

Pistons:
-Copeland
-Felton (to backup Jennings injury)

Mavericks get Bisack Biyombo

Hornets get Devin Harris + 2016 second round pick

jaydos


Add Beal for Ledo and I would agree.

d_drainr


^^^^^ Beal can be a game changer as far as Ledo. Whos Ledo sounds like a nobody.

Where are the Mavs?

If Nowitzki doesn't hit the big shoots, if Rondo doesn't hit easy shoots and doesn't finish drives to the basket, if there are no easy spot up shooters, if there are many turnovers and less rebounds and only Ellis have the strikes - can see a winning Mavs Team.

Be honest also before Rondo, the Mavs where not the Team, that win over the top teams. With Rondo you can see much better defense.

So Mavs need to setup new players! A good shooter, SG/SF another good PF and another Center - to keep always preasure on the opponent - and to chance to see the starting five score in a better manner in that case.

Sign ONeal? Try to get Plumlee would be better. And the proposal I have read:
Biombo but also Beal for Felton and 2nd picks?

d_drainr


Beal for Felton and 2 second round picks? Has Raymond even played this season?

alexstorm1


1) Neal not Beal. 2) Felton has played but little. Felton has no value outside the cap number he has.

Suns - Mavericks - 76ers

Suns trade Plumlee
Suns get Mavericks 2015 second round pick, Warriors 2015 second round pick (from 76ers), trade exception

Mavericks trade Ledo
Mavericks get Plumlee

76ers trade Warriors 2015 second round pick
76ers get Ledo

Suns can't get Plumlee any PT so swapping him out for two second round picks is a solid return.

Mavericks need a back up center with athleticism and adding Plumlee will just do that.

76ers might have every second round pick in 2015 (ok actually just 5) so swapping out the Warriors second round pick (likely #60 overall) for Ledo who could give the 76ers an option on the wing going forward is a smart move to make.

Wizfan2


Ledo and a late 2nd rounder isn't enough for Mavs to get Plumlee.

EU


Sixers aren't interested in a player like ledo

go 76ers


It's two second round picks not one.

What makes you think the Sixers have no interest in Ledo? Are you part of the Sixers organization? No!

Wizfan2


It's an opinion, just like yours. Don't be sensitive.

Boy Howdie


There's a difference between saying you don't like a certain player verse acting like your the owner of the team.

Wizfan2


Ledo probably wouldn't interest the Sixers at this point. Hinkie likes his second rounders.

If Mavs sign ONeal I would add:

Pistons (Jennings out with torn Achilles)
-Felton

Pacers:
-Aminu

Mavs:
-Lavoy Allen
-Butler

Chandler, ONeal, Smith/Powell
Nowitzki, Allen, Powell(Villaneuva)
Parsons, Butler, Jefferson
Ellis, Butler, Harris (Ledo)
Rondo, Barea, Harris

Nobody wants felton he is horrible over paid and slow.

totellthetruth


Felten is not that bad! He had 15, 5 in his 30 min fort Mavs and for sure he is a working backup for Jennings injury. Butler is also not a very good player anymore. But Papers have demand on Felton, Macs on Butler fort SG/SF Backup.

d_drainr


Felton is not a good player and a head case as well. Look at his analytics and you can see he is a very poor defensive player and offenisvely he is below average. Detroit says no.

totellthetruth


I tough only as a backup till Jennings is back, you know.

If Nowitzki doesn't make the crunch time shoots, they will not win.

But to update the roster we could see the following, I would like:

Cavs:
-Smith
-Bullock
-Felton

Mavs:
-Plumlee
-Marion
-Green

Suns:
-Haywood (1/2 y guaranteed left)
-Aminu
-Joe Harris
-2nd from Mavs

d_drainr


Suns say no. Pointless for them to do this

RainMan


Pointless? SG Joe Harris and SG Aminu are potential starters in a young athletic team!

d_drainr


Suns already jammed at guard.they need front court help. No way they do this.

Mavs - Lakers

Mavs get E Davis
Lakers get 2 2nd round picks + cap filler expiring

Mavs get a replacement for B Wright
Lakers get some draft picks. Even if Davis is part of long term plan, he's going to opt out after this season and can sign him again.

Bulls - Celtics

Bulls trade Snell, Moore, Kings 2015 first round pick

Celtics trade Turner, Mavericks 2016 second round pick, Cavs 2016 second round pick

Bulls need an upgrade at the wing and adding Turner provides a new wrinkle to a Bulls offense that likes to create plays from many positions on the court.

Celtics move out Turner (not a part of their future) and a pair of their four second round picks in 2016 for a prospect (Snell) and a likely lottery first round pick.

Mavericks - Suns

Mavericks get Plumlee, Ennis

Suns get Felton (waived), 2017 unprotected first round pick, 2015 second round pick

Mavericks need to add a center who can rebound behind Chandler, not being able to get a rebound single handily cost the Mavericks the game against the Bulls last night. Plumlee and Ennis (who could be the future point guard if Rondo leaves as a free agent) would provide the old Mavericks some youth without doing any harm to their small championship window.

Suns have too many young players to play as both Plumlee and Ennis are third on the teams depth chart at center and point guard. Moving out both (who where late first round picks) for a second round pick this year and a very possible lottery pick in 2017. The only down side is having to take back Felton who they can waive or buy out right after the trade.

Wizfan2


MAVERICKS
PG: Rondo / Barea
SG: Ellis / Harris
SF: Parsons / Aminu
PF: Nowitzki / Villanueva
C: Chandler / Plumlee
SUNS
PG: Dragic / Thomas
SG: Bledsoe / Goodwin
SF: Tucker / Green
PF: Morris / Morris
C: Len / Wright

Suns would rather keep any of their guys. than get Felton & more low round picks. PHX says no.

Nets - Blazers - Mavericks

Nets trade Garnett, Anderson

Nets get Robinson, Wright, Felton, Blazers 2018 second round pick, Mavericks 2015 second round pick, Grizzlies 2016 second round pick

Blazers trade Wright, Robinson, Leonard, Barton, 2018 second round pick

Blazers get Garnett, Anderson

Mavericks trade Felton, 2015 second round pick, Grizzlies 2016 second round pick

Mavericks get Leonard, Barton

Nets give Garnett a chance to win another title and move him out for some expiring contracts and a few future second round picks.

Blazers are in need of a starting caliber power forward with Aldridge out 6-8 weeks with a hand injury. K.G. can start for now and bring energy off the bench with Aldridge returns.

Mavericks need a big long center to back up Chandler. While Leonard has been a bust so far in his career giving up Felton (addition by subtraction) and a pair of second round picks for a former lottery pick is a smart risk to take.

If Portland is trading that much to the nets, they want lopez, not Garnett.

Benjamin66


A bunch of expiring contracts and a second round pick for Garnett is too much?

Would like to see:

Mavs:
-Plumlee
-Green

Suns:
-Haywood (+1m for buy out this season)
-Aminu
-Joe Harris
-2nd from Mavs

Cavs:
-Felton

d_drainr


I don't think you understand Haywoods contract. 2.2 mil this year then jumps to 10 mil next year, but is not guaranteed. The value is as a trade asset going to another team looking to shed salary.

Very unlikely but idea to help teams in long run

ONLY if Lakers get their pick

Lakers get Rondo (maybe future pick idk)

Dallas get Randle and 4th pick

- Lakers get a star right away instead of waiting

- Dallas get Dirk future replacement and top 5 pick

Dallas draft DeAngelo Russell at 4 Dakari Johnson at 23

Russell/Felton
Ellis/Harris/Ledo
Parsons/Aminu
Dirk/Randle/2nd round pick
Chandler/Johnson

Trade23


I don't see the Mavs doing this. Even the best rookies took time to mold into an impact player. Yeah they can draft a PG but he won't be developed enough until Dirk jersey is retired.

succeed and proceed


Lakers say no. After Lakers get their top5 pick, the free agency period will start. So, they will be able to sign Rondo via free agency, without sacrificing a promising prospect and a high pick.

Blazers - Mavericks - Pacers

Blazers trade Robinson, Wright, Leonard, McCollum, 2015 first round pick

Blazers get George Hill, West, Allen

Mavericks trade Felton, 2015 second round pick, Grizzlies 2016 second round pick

Mavericks get Kaman

Pacers trade George Hill, West, Allen

Pacers get Robinson, Wright, Leonard, McCollum, Felton, Blazers 2015 first round pick, Mavericks 2015 second round pick, Grizzlies 2016 second round pick (from Mavericks)

Blazers with one trade go from having one of the worst benches in the league to one of the best with the addition of. Hill and West (who should come off the bench to keep Aldridge from playing a lot at center). All it cost them is some expiring contract, two young prospects not getting a ton of playing time and a first round pick likely to be #25-30 range.

Mavericks are looking for big bodies and they only real contract to trade is Felton. Now while he has played horribly over the last few years moving him with a pair of second round picks is a smart move to net a legit back up center.

Pacers would be smart to blow things up as much as possible and rebuild with Paul George as the focal point in 2015-2016. The trade nets the Pacers three picks, a bunch of cap space, and a couple of prospects who should get playing time to see if they are worth being part of the long term plan for the Pacers.

Mavs should go for Gerald Green! Felten can still Play well!

Kings:
-Felton

Suns:
-Aminu

Mavs:
-Green
-2nd pick from Kings

Mavs sign ONeal and Blatch! Contender.

d_drainr


Picks should definitely be going from Dallas to suns on this one. Possibly even to kings for taking Felton.

He really doesn't play well
