So let's just say. The Knicks really want Reggie Jackson, Durant says this week he'd leave OKC for NY in order to play with Carmelo, and both teams could use a major shakeup. Hmmm.
Knicks get Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins, Reggie Jackson (s&t)
***Expiring money, two stars under contract, flexibility for the summer retained.
Thunder get Melo, Pablo Prigioni, Cole Aldrich
***More offensive firepower than any team in the league (yes, it's true), pass first point, depth at C. If Durant leaves, you still have Melo.
30 Jan 2015 18:52:23

Rockets get Cole and Deng
30 Jan 2015 18:36:20

Houston get Brook Lopez and Goran Dragic + 1st round pick from Suns
- Suns get a star center to finally help them be a real playoff contender
- Nets reunite Plumlee brothers
- Rockets seems fine without Howard , think Lopez will revive his game with a new environment , he would be a great fit and with a great PG in Dragic , it will be a very interesting Rockets team

Bulls get Terrence Jones and Trevor Ariza
Good for bulls
30 Jan 2015 14:48:03
Rockets get MCW and Luc Mbah Moute
Sixers get Trevor Ariza and Patrick Beverley
Sixers pass. Those two guys are making too much and are not elite talent.
30 Jan 2015 14:36:55
Philadelphia get Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson
Gs Warriors get Michael Carter-Williams and Miami pick
That's not right.
Horrible they are both untadable
Wow. I am a Sixers fan and that proposal embarrasses me. Did you mean it as a joke? We couldn't get Klay and Steph if we traded everything we have and threw in the Liberty Bell.
Nobody wants the liberty bell, its been cracked for years
30 Jan 2015 14:25:55
Miami get Brandon Bass
Boston get 2nd rd pick , Norris Cole and James Ennis
Take out Ennis.
30 Jan 2015 14:06:52
Major Shake Up. 2. 0
NYK get: Coach Tom Thibedou, Jimmy Butler & 2015 1st DP MIA (VIA PHI)
Build Team Around Jimmy Butler
Sign: Reggie Jackson & Tobias Harris
Draft: Okafor (1st) & Montrezz Harrell (16th)
pg. reggie jackson
sg. jimmy butler
sf. tobias harris
CHI get: MCW & Carmelo Anthony
PHI get: Derrick Rose & THJ
Bulls eye. I see u took my advice. Smart.
Chicago needs more. Sixers I think would be fine. Knicks I believe get a good return. So only give Chicago something more and it should work.
30 Jan 2015 13:38:43
Chi give thibs dunleavey Gibson
Nyk give 1st unprotected bargnani
Only reason is toms time is done it's not the players or the fans who make the choice but the owners and since they have completely different views they should trade him for the possible 1st rounder
Get jahill or towns to back up gasol once he's done
From all the knicks fans in the world, to this we respond hahahahha
30 Jan 2015 07:50:41
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.
-Sign FA ONeal
-2nd from Mavs
-Felton (to backup Jennings injury)
Like this one
30 Jan 2015 06:02:10
Mavericks get Bisack Biyombo
Hornets get Devin Harris + 2016 second round pick
Add Beal for Ledo and I would agree.
30 Jan 2015 06:01:02
Blazers get Wilson Chandler
Nuggets get Will Barton + Allen Crabbe + Dorell Wright + 2015 first round pick
30 Jan 2015 05:59:27
Rockets get Pablo Prigioni + Quincy Acy
Knicks get Alexey Shved + 2015 second round pick
30 Jan 2015 05:58:13
Grizzlies get Chris Copeland
Pacers get 2016 second round pick
Only way this trade works is if Memphis sends out a player too. Even with the Pondexter TE the Grizzlies would go into the tax and they won't do that
30 Jan 2015 05:57:31
Raptors get Andrei Kirilenko
Sixers get Landry Fields + 2017 second round pick
No thanks from sixers
30 Jan 2015 04:12:28
Reggie Jackson for Marcus Smart and a first
Smart + 1st > Jackson
Smart is on a rookie deal (so cheap money) verse Jackson who is about to get paid big time (over paid in RFA)
29 Jan 2015 23:12:44
Wolves make room to draft either Karl Towns, Jahlil Okafor, or Myles Turner
Thunder get Nikola Pekovic and Mo Williams
Wolves get Reggie Jackson, Perry Jones, Jeremy Lamb, and Kendrick Perkins expirin
PF. S. Ibaka/ N. Collison/ G. Jarrett
SF. K. Durant/ A. Roberson
C. N. Pekovic/ S. Adams/ M. McGary
SG. A. Morrow/ D. Waiters
Pg. R. Westbrook/ M. Williams/ I. Smith
If Pekovic could stay healthy, this would be a great deal.
29 Jan 2015 22:50:53
CLE: N. Cole
MIA: B. Haywood
Cleveland gets an upgrade over Dellavadova at backup PG in Cole, who they could also resign long term after the season because he's a restricted free agent.
Miami would basically be trading for Haywood's unique contract which is totally Non-guaranteed for $10.5 mil next season. Since the Heat are over the cap, the only way to add a high salary player is by trade. Haywood's contract would be attractive to a team like Brooklyn who is looking to shed salary and it could help Miami match salaries for a player like Deron Williams or Brook Lopez. This may not quite make Miami a contender but it would help maintain fan interest and it would be the right thing to do by Wade to at least give contention a puncher's chance during his last few years.
The Heat might have to throw in a future second round pick because of Coles pending FA and like you said the face that Haywood's contract next season is a huge trade chip.
29 Jan 2015 22:45:48
Lakers get Reggie Jackson
Thunder get Ed Davis, Jordan Clarkson, and 2015 2nd rd pick (#34 right now)
Thunder better off holding on to Jackson
Lol lakers would say no they can just sign Jackson
29 Jan 2015 22:08:21
Lakers get Kendrick Perkins regie jackson
Thunder get Jordan hill Ronnie price Wesley Johnson Andrew kirilenko
76ers get lakers 1st rd pick (Houston)
So the Sixers get a 1st round pick for Kirilenko?!? Lmao
Cut the 76ers out of the deal and send the pick to OKC
Sixers would have to tkae on a and contract for something. They can't get a first for nothing.
29 Jan 2015 21:55:06
Spurs get bass and crowder
Celtics get Anderson,Joseph,ayres and second round pick
Spurs sign Bryce cotton from d league to replace joseph
Take out Anderson and I like the deal
29 Jan 2015 21:45:08
Hornets get Faried and Foye
Nuggets get Williams, Jeff Taylor, and a 2015 top 8 protected 1st, if pick lands 1-8, hornets trade 2 2nd rd picks
Frame work is good but Nuggets aren't going to swap Faried for what is likely to be two 2nd round picks. The protections on the pick should be top 8 in 2015 top 5 in 2016 top 3 in 2017 unprotected in 2018
29 Jan 2015 20:54:34
OKC - Lakers - Pistons
OKC get Hill and Young (LA)
Lakers get Perkins, Perry (OKC), Datome (Det) and first draft pick
Pistons get Jackson (OKC) and Kelly (LA)
30 Jan 2015 10:51:15
But the first pick from OKC, not from Detroit.
30 Jan 2015 14:41:17
If the first is from Detroit then the answer is no since Jackson is a FA at the end of the season. IF the first is from OKC then I do this trade in a heart beat.
Why would then thunder give up a first round pick in this deal? Their the ones giving up the best asset in Jackson.
29 Jan 2015 20:04:11
Nuggets trade Lawson, McGee, Afflalo, Hickson, Green
Nuggets get Jackson, Stauskas, Williams, Thompson, Perkins, 1st round pick Kings
Kings trade Stauskas, Williams, Thompson, Sessions, Evans, 1st round pick
Kings get Lawson, McGee, Hickson (use trade exception J. Terry), Green (use trade exception I. Thomas)
Thunder trade Jackson, Perkins
Thunder get Afflalo, Sessions, Evans
- Only real loss is Lawson because he can be a longtime building block, but they get Jackson, Stauskas, a first round pick and 2 expiring contracts. huge cap space 2016. playoff contender within 2-3 years
- Kings give up talented shooter Stauskas and future 1st round pick, but they get Lawson and depth at froncourt with McGee and Hickson both with expiring contracts in 2016 to go after another major FA to pair with Lawson, Gay and Cousins.
- small roster upgrade, Jackson is not going to stay, he will get big payday and he also wants to be starting PG. Afflalo and Sessions give them upgrade at SG, experience, scoring and defense
29 Jan 2015 19:45:25
Blow things up in Okc (if only they don't make the playoffs)
Okc get Julius Randle , Miles Plumlee and 1st round pick from LAL via Houston , Jeremy Lin exp for salary and another future 1st from Lal
Lal get Serge Ibaka and Reggie Jackson
Phx get Jordan Hill (team option next season) and Lal 2nd rd pick
Okay first for LAL , they get the 2 best players in here so they could be the winner in this trade , they could be ready to rebuild come next season if they can resign Jackson and draft someone like Towns to pair with Ibaka at the frontcourt
For the Suns , they took a big contract of Jordan Hill but that guy will be a fit , the Suns need a defensive presence down low and that's Hill is all about
OKC Thunder plans now
make another trade
send Jeremy Lamb + a 2nd rd pick to Philadelphia for Jason Richardson (waive) - salary dump
- let Kendrick Perkins and Jeremy Lin walk
- sign Marc Gasol to 4yr 76mil deal , he'll do it to collaborate with two superstars and win a championship
draft with the Rockets pick a PG
2015-16 OKC Thunder
PG : Russ Westbrook , 2015 1st rd pick
SG : Andre Roberson , Dion Waiters , Anthony Morrow
SF : Kevin Durant , Perry Jones III
PF : Julius Randle , Mitch McGary
CE : Marc Gasol , Miles Plumlee
29 Jan 2015 19:33:11
Major Shake Up
NYK get: Coach Tom Thibedou & Jimmy Butler
CHI get: MCW & Carmelo Anthony
PHI get: Derrick Rose & THJ
Finally something I love for my sixers.
But knicks r going to need picks
Sixers get rose and hardaway fr carter williams lmaooo this would never happen
Mcw is young and has more energy. Rose is on and off with injuries and hardaway never proved anything so yea.
29 Jan 2015 19:29:06
- many moving pieces here
OKC get Kenneth Faried , Tony Wroten , Aaron Afflalo and JJ Hickson
PHI get Wilson Chandler , Andre Roberson , Serge Ibaka
Mudiay(draft)/2nd rd pick
DEN get Miami pick from Philly , Nerlens Noel and Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb , 2nd round pick from Philly
Surprisingly even trade.
Sixers can get so much more better players than that if the sixers are going to offer that
29 Jan 2015 19:17:59
Thunder get Kevin Love and Mathew Deladova
Cavs get Serge Ibaka, Reggie Jackson, and Jeremy Lamb
29 Jan 2015 19:15:06
DET - DAL
Only if they still want to try and get that 8th spot this year.
Dinwiddie for JJ Barea
29 Jan 2015 20:55:05
Detroit doesn't want Barea.
Why would Dallas make this trade?
Because they don't use Barea at all and Dinwiddie has the athleticism/potential to be decent in this league. He also has a 2nd rd contract. All of DAL PGs are getting old and they are light at SG after Monta which might be Dinwiddie's more natural position.
It doesn't matter Detroit won't do this since as you mentioned Dinwiddle has first round talent on a second round contract.
29 Jan 2015 19:13:36
DET - HOU
Datome (expiring) for Isaiah Canaan and Joey Dorsey
DET says bye bye to Cartier Martin
Rockets say no.
29 Jan 2015 18:24:57
Knicks - Pistons
Knicks trade Prigioni
Pistons trade Datome, 2015 second round pick (top 44 protected, if pick is outside top #44 then Pistons obligation to Knicks will be extinguished)
Pistons need another PG with Jennings done for the year.
Knicks just look to get anything they can for Prigioni so a swap of expiring contracts and a second round pick only if the Pistons make the playoffs.
I've always liked this trade as soon as Jennings went down. Not sure why it hasn't happened. Giving the pick has always been the issue I assume. but protecting it should work for both teams.
Yeah even if the Pistons miss the playoffs oh well. The Knicks don't add any long term salary.
29 Jan 2015 17:44:46
If the Thunder don't think they can make the playoffs, they should consider a major shakeup. KD and Russ should be the only off limit guys. However, I'd be reluctant to move Adams, Waiters. Target expiring deals and attack 2015 Free Agency full on.
Lakers get Serge Ibaka, Loul Deng, Jeremy Lamb, Andre Roberson, Perry Jones
***Ibaka is under contract for the next three seasons and is not only a premier rim protector, but he is young and expanding his range. Roberson and Jones have the makeup of elite defenders on the perimeter. Lamb has potential. Deng is a nice vet to put with Kobe and Ibaka.
Heat get Reggie Jackson and Nick Young
***Heat made a short-sighted move by betting on themselves when Lebron left. They didn't address the point position like they should, and Deng is no Lebron. By bringing in Jackson, they bring in a guy who is a starting caliber point and capable of being a spark to a tired team. Young has passion and can fill the Deng void.
Thunder get Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Julius Randle, Wayne Ellington
***Randle can be a nice young asset when losing Ibaka, Ellington can be a stopgap at the 2, but the get is the expiring deals. This summer, they'll have a combined $31M coming off the books. They'll only have KD, Russ, Waiters, Morrow, Randle, Adams, McGary, Jarrett under contract. If picks are involved, they will land here as well. They can target pieces that fit and bring them back into the championship conversation. It's a drastic trade but could be a gamble that pays off.
29 Jan 2015 18:15:46
I really don't understand how you value young players. You suggest that the Sixers should trade Embiid for Brook Lopez but now somehow Randle is enough to get Serge Ibaka, Luol Deng, Lamb, Roberson and Jones. Anyway, yeah, Thunder slam down the phone pretty hard on this monstrosity.
Thigs trade is lose lose lose for all three teams.
Trade Ibaka Jackson and Lamb for cap space?!?! Yeah no thanks
29 Jan 2015 17:24:03
Jazz - 76ers
Jazz get Kirilenko
76ers get Warriors 2016 second round pick
Sixers need to hurry the hell up to trade that fucker.
29 Jan 2015 17:20:35
M. Plumlee (PHO) x M. Speights (GSW)
29 Jan 2015 17:13:50
Chicago get Kenneth Faried and Aaron Afflalo
Denver get Lakers 1st rd pick top 5 and Jordan Hill
Lakers get Joakim Noah and Wilson Chandler
- sign Goran Dragic
30 Jan 2015 02:09:29
So what happens if the Lakers get the 6th pick in the draft?
29 Jan 2015 16:57:36
Denver get Reggie Jackson
Oklahoma City get Jameer Nelson and JJ Hickson + 2nd rd pick
Thunder say no
30 Jan 2015 02:12:05
Before the Waiters trade I would say that OKC would want Afflalo or Chandler. I don't see them making this trade to the Nuggets
29 Jan 2015 16:37:49
Bulls - Wolves - Celtics
Bulls trade McDermott, Snell, Moore, 2015 first round pick
Bulls get Martin, Robinson III
Wolves trade Martin, Robinson III
Wolves get Snell, Thorton (waived), Bulls 2015 first round pick, Cavs 2016 first round pick (from Celtics)
Celtics trade Thorton, Cavs 2016 first round pick
Celtics get McDermott, Moore (waived)
Bulls look to add scoring and shooting off their bench and add the savvy vet Martin.
Wolves have no long term plans for Martin so swapping him out for a young role player (Snell) and two likely late first round picks is a good return for a young rebuilding team.
Celtics have a billion picks coming their way in future drafts so swapping a late first round pick (from the Cavs) for the former lottery pick shooter McDermott (who the Celtics were very high on before the draft).
