Sixers get Clarkson
Lakers get Noel
Both fill their needs obviously lakers have interest in a defensive Center to cover Ingram and Randle and Sixers need a pg so everyone wins.
27 Jun 2016 08:50:40
Sign and trade clarkson to Philly along with shumpert and Frye. Philly adds depth
Lakers get love and can sign Whiteside and derozan.
Cavs get noel but unload cap to sign batum and resign Smith, Jefferson, and delly
27 Jun 2016 12:54:13
Why would any team do a sign and trade with Clarckson.
I understand teams do this for KD or LBJ or even Conley or Beal.
But the Lakers aren't going to offer Clarckson max money, so teams could just sign him in free agency.
27 Jun 2016 14:33:14
Sixers sign clarkson outright or force lakers to overpay for him, limiting their chance at other FA, so lakers pick is worth more
27 Jun 2016 14:49:01
The max for Clarkson is 4 years 57 mill from the Lakers. He would be getting 5 mill each in his first 2 years and then getting somewhere above 20 million because of the Gilbert Arenas Provision. I think the most another team could offer him is 4 years 52 million but Clarkson has stated numerous times he loves it here and wants to stay. Lakers want him back too. The price? Could be determined by another team which Lakers could match.
27 Jun 2016 15:05:45
The max another team could offer him is 4 years 57 million. Sheeee, he will other options. I think Lakers will match any offer. Plus if someone offers him the max, 5 mill first year, it doesn't hamper the Lakers FA since they have over 60 mill in cap space.
27 Jun 2016 15:24:09
If lakers want to match a maxing offer for clarkson then let them have him. No way I give Noel for him.

Three way trade
Why Hawks do it- Hawks give up a lot but they are in rebuild mode and with the cap rising the more cap flexibility they have the better. The Hawks receive a good replacement guard in Holiday and more youth in Ennis and Ajinca. Frye gives them some leadership and a good offensive option off the bench. Most importantly though along with the youth they receive, they give up 31 mil in cap but receive 24 mil so do the math and they gain 7 mil in cap so they will be under the cap this offseason close to 45 mil under the cap. So if they find a way to trade Splitter and a pick for cap room they will have close to 52 million in total cap space. Talk about options for rebuilding and possibility to attract a few great few agents and continue to contend in the east while still having their youth will be huge.
Why the Pelicans do it- let's face it, its desperation mode for the Pelicans before they see Davis walk in free agency so this is a way to bring in a fellow all star who knows how to do everything effectively and is under rated overall in Millsap. Also they add defensive presence in Shumpert and an offensive threat and leadership in Mo Will. Kahn gives them another big body to give Davis and Millsap a few minutes break. Overall though this is a new start with a disappointing season for the Pelicans last year and with their injuries and lack of chemistry and adding Hield with Davis and Millsap gives them some type of core group to build off of and gives them a chance in free agency.
Why the Cavs do it- Cavs don't have any way to improve this year with the cap rising and they need to pull off a deal for them that doesn't give up their 4 top players, (James, Irving, Love, Thompson) while gaining some more depth. Cavs take a risk in this situation because Evans of course has his injury history but all around is a good guard when healthy, Korver had his fallout year last year and of course and his age is a concern but he still can shoot the lights out at times, and Stefo and Scott are all good options as role players. Cavs do gain more than they give but they take advantage of Atlanta's desire to gain cap space and that's the only way for them to gain depth since they are constricted with their cap situation even with the cap rising.
27 Jun 2016 05:45:10
The Hawks aren't rebuilding, even if Horford leaves.
27 Jun 2016 06:12:20
Well they got 45 mil in cap after this and if they can find a trade for splitter than they have 50 mil to work with and they can build the team the way they want to.
27 Jun 2016 15:00:26
Ummm... Hawks already have 45m in cap space without the trade...
27 Jun 2016 04:45:14
Three Knicks signings that make them a more complete team:
The Knicks have approximately $33M to spend with Afflalo and Williams opting out. With only five players under contract now who have actually played in the NBA, swinging for a max level guy is likely to be a miss, and even if they land a max guy, they're going to be extremely thin.
Three guys that I like and fill needs while also fitting into the cap space are:
Joakim Noah - 3 year/ $48M
Allen Crabbe - 4 years/ $52M
Grevis Vasquez - 2 year/ MLE
Knicks would fill three much needed holes, pick up some shooting, and still have a few million to sign another bench player or two.
27 Jun 2016 10:16:07
NY should trade C Anthony for some young assets, But i think they're going to try to sign Noah.
I truly hope D Rose is going to be good again and can play +70 games the next years.
27 Jun 2016 10:18:58
Don't know if they'll be able to land Crabbe, but if they do, they will only have a couple to million to sign like 5 players. I think resigning Galloway and getting a guy like Gerald Henderson for half of what Crabbe would get would be a wiser move.
27 Jun 2016 04:44:42
Bucks - Lakers - Kings
Bucks gets - McClemore•SG/ SF and Williams•SG
Lakers gets - MCW•PG, WCS•C, and Bucks 1st
Kings gets - Russell•PG/ SG
Giannis - Middleton - McClemore - Parker - Henson
MCW - Clarkson - Ingram - Randle - WCS
Rondo - Russel - Gay - Acy - Cousins.
27 Jun 2016 06:47:26
I don't really understand why the Bucks would do this, they are getting crushed in this trade. Give up their first in the best draft since 2003 for a bench player? Makes no sense
27 Jun 2016 07:28:54
The Bucks are getting robbed neither of those guys are worth a 1st.
27 Jun 2016 14:51:10
Find it funny how everyone is saying next years class is deep and fantastic. Half of the class hasn't played a minute of college basketball. Pretty sure 2014 was supposed to great a draft class and it looks like only 1 true Star comes from that draft.
27 Jun 2016 04:14:23
Smart, Olynyk, Johson and rights to Yabusele
ATL needs to start some sort of rebuild a starting 5 of Schroeder, Smart, Prince, Yabusele and Olynyk is a start
BOS Gets an all star in Milsap to pair with the signings of Horford and durant, ayeee, have a cap of around 105 million so 11 over but under luxury tax line.
27 Jun 2016 05:43:08
Stop Celtics fans, we're not rebuilding. Milsap isn't going anywhere and if he does it would be for another good player or all star, not your garbage. That's like The Hawks saying we would trade Muscala, Mike Scott, DeAndre Bembery for Isaiah Thomas. Do you get my point.
27 Jun 2016 10:19:24
I like Millsap going to Boston, but no way Atlanta accept this offer. They would want a draft pick, if they're going to rebuilt. But Boston shouldn't give a Nets pick for Millsap (to old), so this isn't going to happen.
27 Jun 2016 04:00:54
Amir Johnson, James Young to Bucks
Moose to Celtics.
27 Jun 2016 03:59:22
Orlando trades Hezonja, Gordon, 2017 1st, 2019 Lakers 1st
Indiana trades PG13.
27 Jun 2016 05:45:08
Pacers won't be trading George now. Bird has been pulling some great moves to make the team look better. On paper at least.
27 Jun 2016 06:39:17
Magic will be a future FA option depending on how they improve but right now Pacers have built around George for next season so no George move will be happening.
27 Jun 2016 10:20:56
The value is equel, but We just traded for Teague and Young, so no.
Try Butler for that package.
27 Jun 2016 03:54:37
Jae Crowder for Rudy Gobert.
27 Jun 2016 05:25:29
the jazz say no. not even close.
27 Jun 2016 12:58:58
I like Gobert in that Boston team and Crowder would be great for Utah
Bost: Burke+ Gobert
Utah: Crowder+ Olynyk+ 1rnd pick 2018 Boston.
27 Jun 2016 14:52:51
Jazz wouldn't do that Gasupo. Gobert is getting undervalued here.
27 Jun 2016 03:36:00
Goin out on a limb here.
Wiz sends- John Wall and a 2nd rounder
Rockets send- James Harden
This is all about scheme, the Rockets with D'antoni need speed on offense, and that offense would be elite with a missle at point. Harden has a tendency to slow down the offense, and while he demands the ball in the half court, he's doesn't bring it up off the inbound. Surrounding Wall with shooters would be the priority along with finding mobile rim protection, but the potential would be there for an offensive blitz. The Rockets could do the Beverly for Meeks deal mentioned on here before, sign mid tier free agents like Noah and Eric Gordon have a really solid line up going forward.
Harden would be ideal for Brook's heavy iso scheme, and would fit better with Washington's attempts to control the paint. I think Harden would be seen in the media as an upgrade but Wilbon has said often that other GMs don't rate Harden quite as high because they see the difficult position he puts his teammates in. Trading for Harden will also allow Washington to let Beal walk instead over paying him for the max and try to find upgrades for other parts of the roster. They'd have a lot flexibility in FA, could go a lot of different directions.
27 Jun 2016 02:52:55
Pelicans - Taj Gibson
Bulls - Tyreke Evans
Pelicans - Eric Bledsoe
Suns - Top 5 protected 1st Round pick
Sign Kent Brazemore 4 yr 60 million
Sign Mario Chalmers 3 yr 30 million
PG - Bledsoe - Chalmers
SG - Hield - Holiday
SF - Brazemore - Pondexter
PF - Davis - Gibson
C - Asik - Diello - Aijianca
The Bulls trade just makes too much sense
Pelicans need to add all the talent they can and the Suns want to move a guard, I don't see why they wouldn't be happy with a first round for Bledsoe
Jrue holiday can play with and without the ball, adding Chalmers to team with Gibson and Pondexter gives the Pelicans a solid defensive 2nd unit.
27 Jun 2016 02:30:09
Suns get okafor
Sixers get bledsoe and 2017 1st rd.
27 Jun 2016 15:26:08
It's fair value. If Bledsoe wasn't injured it there wouldn't be a need for the first rounder as well. But since he's a question mark it's fair value.
27 Jun 2016 15:37:28
Needs some rework (from a PHX perspective) . Okafor and the rights to Luwawu. for B. Knight and change.
27 Jun 2016 01:54:08
Sixers should look to get another pick for very deep 17 draft to get going pg sg and sf
If Kings or Sixers gets #1 (very good odds this happens) they can draft Jackson then with Lakers pick (hopefully also in 4-8 range) they can draft Lonzo Ball. If they get a 3rd pick, depending on who it is they can get Monk or Grayson Allen if it is later in the draft. Sign some veterans and by the time Lebron leaves this could be a legacy team.
Rockets get Grant (Bulls), Covington, Bulls 2017 2nd
Sixers get Beverly McDermott Bulls 1st 2017
Bulls get Okafor
27 Jun 2016 15:27:03
I would pass as a Sixers fan.
27 Jun 2016 01:46:56
Detroit -Shabazz Ariza Beverley
HOUSTON - Rubio Deng.
27 Jun 2016 05:35:24
Wolves laugh and hang up.
27 Jun 2016 05:43:46
Sorry made this comment before looking at Harris' stats. Not as bad as I originally thought.
But the Wolves would still say no easily.
Dieng is a solid player and Rubio has a lot a value too, plus they don't know what they have in Dunn yet, so I doubt they take that chance.
27 Jun 2016 01:32:18
Boston gets Rubio
Minnesota gets Gibson and Calderon or a 2nd round pick.
27 Jun 2016 05:38:01
I'm assuming you mean Bulls, because neither of those players are on the Celtics.
And Wolves say no because both Gibson and Calderon are on the wrong side of 30. They won't be there when the Wolves are ready to compete, and Dunn may not end even being as good as Rubio.
