Chicago trades: Carlos Boozer, Greg Smith, 2014 1st round draft picks #16 & #19, and 2014 second round draft pick #49

Orlando gets 2 mid first round picks in a loaded draft that would otherwise be late lottery picks in other years. They get a 2nd round pick (they don't have one this year) which is a cheap contract they can potentially hit gold on (See Isaiah Thomas). Also Carlos Boozer expiring contract can be used as a trade chip at the deadline.
#3 - Dante Exum
#12 - Doug McDermott
#16 - Adrian Payne
#19 - Clint Capela (draft and Stash - Raw prospect)
#49 - Patric Young
PF: O'Quinn/Payne/ (Capela if he comes over)/Maxiell

Miami- Orlando- Boston
Miami get Vucvic, Bass & Affalo
Orlando get Wallace, Boston pick, Miami pick
Draft Embiid, Exum, Saric and Capela
Boston get Bosh
Miami get a center who rebounds and scores well, bass is a good roll player in this lineup at pf and affalo fills that need at sg when wade is out and in a small lineup affalo can play sf if wade and lebron are on the court. They could make a play for melo too if they took some pay cut which they are known to do.
Orlando get Wallace bad contract but a load of picks including another lottery one draft embiid potential Allstar center to replace vucevic, exum to fill their need at pg and a great backcourt buddy for oladipo, Saric has become a bit of a point forward playing for Croatia which gives orlando a 3rd ball handler and play maker and at 6'10 sf a total mismatch, Capela is very raw but his defense and athletism is intriguing he can develope his game coming off the bench as a pf/c. This gives orlando a young team to develope and then when Wallace contract his up they can extend some these players contracts.
Boston get bosh to pair with rondo giving them another star then try and sign a free agent say Hayward at sg or deng at sf as they will have cap space with the expiring contracts.
I have them draft Nurkic whose got great size and strength think pekovic type center.

Suns fans mentality. Suns should get 76ers own 1st round pick, the one that will be in the top 5, because the Suns are giving up the GOAT in Archie Goodwin.

Re-sign Josh McRoberts 3yr 10m
Re-sign Luke Ridnour 2yr 5m
Re-sign Jannero Pargo 1yr 1m
Good young team

Except resigning of ridnour and pargo, all seems unlikely
24 Apr 2014 11:00:20
Boston : Orlando
Boston; Nicholson, Orlando pick 3rd
Orlando; Boston picks 5th & 17th
Draft Exum, Saric & Capela
With this Boston they fill their need which getting a Center who can work both sides and a good offensive Power Forward who isn't being used in Orlando
Orlando get an extra pick for their rebuild fill their needs of pg, sf and rim protector
Then trade green and bass to pistons for smith and maybe pistons 1st and sign Hayward
I can see this going down only during draft night when it is certain Exum has fallen to #5.

24 Apr 2014 02:19:19
Phil said he can get Melo to live up to word of taking less to have better team around Melo. Why stop their Amare also does the same. melo and Amare to opt out take less money. Amare 3 yr 35 mil (10, 11, 12) Melo 5 yr 90. (16, 17, 18, 19, 20) Saving 21 mil of 91 mil payroll for next yr.
Trading Chandler Bargnani to la = 26 mil for Gasol 1 yr 10 mil and Kaman 1 yr 4 mil. Ny save another 12 mil. Bringing payroll to 58 mil. Trade Felton Shumpert to bobcats for jeffrey Taylor & 45th pick. Bring payroll to 52 mil. With increase in cap space NY sign Bledsoe 4 yr 64mil. (13. 5, 15, 16, 17. 5) NY need quality defensive pg. 2015 with MWP Odom KAMAN Prigioni brown GASOL all come off the books.
2014 Roster 70 mil
In the triangle offense knicks offensive efficiency make up for lack defensive presense like Chandler
Amare might have to get 4th yr y player opt. 4
yr 48 mil (10, 11. 5, 12. 5 14). It make sense to a
to ask melo to take less Amare does the same. Cats will need a backup next yr. Felton has too much pride not to do well in front hometown. Jordan loves n. Carolina boys who can ball. Felton is owe 4.5 mil. Jordan get to opt out final to extend his career. Shumpert for Taylor and 2nd is gift. Chandler biggest problem is his 5 kids across the country. Chandler be huge in la. D'Antonio will get best if Bargnani with his Italian connection. Gasol game is more made triangle, D, Antoni was using Gasol more fitted for Bargnani game. Lakers ownership wants to keep D, Antoni. Unlike most ideas this is more realistic.
24 Apr 2014 02:19:11
*Tyson Chandler traded for young PG or draft picks.
Knicks Acquire: C Omer Asik, G/F Jordan Hamilton (S&T)
Rockets Acquire: G J. R. smith, F/C Andrea Bargnani
Why Knicks do it: Phil Jackson wants to change the culture of the locker room, so step 1 is trading away J. R. Who played at a very high level towards the end of the year but is a distraction off the court which is the last thing the Knicks need right now. They get rid of Bargnani who didn't fit in well in NY but did show flashes of brilliance on the offensive side of the ball at the beginning of the year. They get back Omer Asik who will replace Chandler and plays well when given the time. And he is also an expiring contract.
Why Rockets do it: Rockets go all in for 2015. They get some needed scoring off the bench from J. R. Smith and get a stretch 4/5 to spread the floor for Howard and company. Bargnani has a chance of bouncing back if put in the right in place. They basically swap expiring contract for expiring contract so if Bargnani doesn't work it out he's gone after 2015 which will open up cap space.
24 Apr 2014 01:54:18
Detroit gets Russell Westbrook, Steven Adams, and Jeremy Lamb
Okc gets Greg Monroe, Brandon Jennings, and #8 pick (Gary Harris)
24 Apr 2014 01:29:50
Minnesota gets picks 14 and 27 in 2014 draft, Lakers pick in 2015 draft, Gerald Green, and Miles Plumlee.
Phoenix gets Kevin Love (with signed extention)
Picks from PHX? Ok. but a modiciation or two, if ya please. Suns give Minnesota back the pick owed to PHX and keep either #14 this year. or Lakers in 2015 pick. and then replace Plumlee with Frye, and you have yerself a deal.
Not going to happen!
You will lose him for nothing!
Greedy Twolves fan.
All that for a one year rental. LOL! Your funny!
Your not getting him to sign an extension!
If you get 3 1st round picks, then you not getting Plumlee, Green and Lakers picks. Your kidding yourself if you think Love is going to sign an extension.
The idea in any trade is to make both teams better. What you are proposing make the Suns worst and the Twolves better. This is not going to happen.
How many playoff games has Love won? He not good enough to carry a team. We will get him for nothing in summer 2015.
The comments by the Suns fans make me laugh. They think they have the greatest assets in the history of the NBA and just one of those assets should get them LeBron, Durant, Love, or any elite player.
23 Apr 2014 22:21:57
3 team trade
Lakers: melo, love and chandler
Twolves: Gasol, Marshall and Nash and knicks 2015 1st round and lakers 2015 1st
Knicks: hill, henry, brewer, Barea lakers 1st
#1) Lakers' players have no value. Gasol has most value but is a FA so no need to trade for him. And as far as Nash, Hill, and Marshall go, are you joking? Lol no one wants them. And Hill is a FA too, so no need to trade for him
#2) Suns own the lakers' 2015 first rounder, so good luck trading that
#3) No one will go to LA until Kobe retires. He's a legend, but he's a person and no one wants to play with him.
So basically, if anyone clicks "believable, " they're just ignorant and don't know the NBA
23 Apr 2014 22:05:58
Trade melo (s&t) and Tyson Chandler to lakers for Pau Gasol, Xavier henry and 1st round pick
Knicks draft Marcus Smart
Why would you draft smart if you are planning to sign lowry? better take a forward
23 Apr 2014 21:57:18
Draft Andrew wiggins
Trade#10 pick and Thad young for Pau Gasol and Xavier Henry
#10 pick and Thad Young for Gasol and Henry? Lol, this must be a laker fan with another personic proposal
23 Apr 2014 21:34:32
Rockets if Knicks don't want to do melo sign and trade
Rockets - Mavs - 76ers
Rockets trade Asik and Lin
Mavs trade 2015 1st round pick, get Asik
76ers get Lin and Mavs 2015 1st round pick in salary dump
(A couple of teams could be substituted in for 76ers here)
23 Apr 2014 18:41:25
Orlando gets s&t Greg Monroe 5yrs $60million
Detroit gets Aaron Afflalo and Moe Harkless
Orlando gets Reggie Jackson, Thabo Sefalosha s&t 3 yrs $7.5 million, and Kendrick Perkins (expiring)
OKC gets #13 pick (Zack Lavine), Andrew Nicholson, and Jameer Nelson
Drafts Jabari Parker (or Andrew Wiggins if Parker gone)
Pf. G. Monroe/ K. OQuinn/ J. Maxiell
Sf. J. Parker/ T. Harris
C. N. Vucevic/ K. Perkins
Sg. V. Oladipo/ T. Sefalosha/ D. Lamb
Pg. R. Jackson/ E. Moore/ R. Price
Thats a good team
This team has no rim protection.
I agree no rim protection. Monroe+Vucevic =no defense. How do y'all disagree with that?
I don't know why people keep suggesting the Magic getting Monroe. Unless the team drafts Embiid, Monroe is a horrible fit for the Magic.
23 Apr 2014 18:28:06
IF the Lakers don't receive a top 3 pick and they trade it, they should send it to Chicago for Taj Gibson and the 16th pick.
-16th pick, draft Tyler Ennis
Trade Kendall Marshall to Spurs for 60th pick
-60th pick, draft Thanasis Antetokounmpo (brother of Giannis): 6'7 with 6'8 wingspand, athletic, quick and is considered one of the best defensive prospects in the entire draft. He's a 2nd rounder cause his low basketball IQ and inconsistent scoring.
-Nick Young (not so cheap)
PG: Tyler Ennis/Jordan Farmar/Steve Nash
SG: Kobe Bryant/Kent Bazemore
SF: Loul Deng/Nick Young/Anteokounmpo
PF: Taj Gibson/Ryan Kelly
C: Greg Monroe/Chris Kaman/Robert Sacre
Are u saying Trade #4 pick for Taj Gibson and #16?!. no thanks. I'll take Dante Exum, Marcus Smart, or Julius Randle
Ennis won't last to the 16th pick.
^ thought they can't get a number four, only top 3 or 5/6?
Have bulls add 2 future 2nd rd picks

CLE get- Monroe & Green
DET get- Deng (s&t) J. Anthony, Zeller, & BOS (via BKN) 1st Dp & 2015 1st (via PHI)
BOS get- J. Smith & Dion Waiters
Too much for j. smith. Take out nets' pick
I'm a Celtics fan and Detroit is not getting its favor share in this trade.
23 Apr 2014 16:21:30

23 Apr 2014 13:42:44
- have plenty of salary
- have additional picks
- have young talents
- have trade baits
Bucks trade Sanders, Ilyasova, Raptors 2nd round pick 2014 (pick #48)
Heat trade Bosh
- get defense, toughness and ball-handling with Stephenson (who is UFA and also could be signed straight up)
Bucks trade Mayo, Session (s&t, 2y10m), 2015 1st round pick (top10 protected)
Pacers trade Stephenson (s&t, 4y 42m)
- get championship experience and mentor for Embiid with Bosh
- #1 pick: Embiid
- #31 pick: SF
- #36 pick: PF
- immediat playoff contender for years to come
- very special team with young talents (Giannis, Embiid, Henson, Stephenson, Knight) and veterans (Bosh, Delfino, Pachulia)
I love trade 1 but trade 2 is not good. They could just sign Stephenson without trading Mayo and the Pick. I would do trade 1 and sign Thabo Sefalosha. He is a player that has started on a championship calibur team for about 5 years.
Don't think heat can take on all that salary.
23 Apr 2014 13:22:09
Pistons trade Monroe (s&t, 4y 50m), Smith, Jerebko
Pistons get Deng, Ilyasova, Mayo, Pachulia, Bucks pick 2015 (top6 protected)

Bucks get Rondo, Smith
Celtics trade Rondo
Celtics get Monroe, Lakers 2nd round pick 2014 (#36)
- in draft go after PF Randle/Vonleh or after SG Exum/Smart
- add Bucks 2015 pick in deep 2015 draft
- in 2016 let Jennings, Mayo and Pachulia walk and sign major FA at PG and resign Drummond
- trade Hawes in s&t for future 2nd round pick
- get have enough cap space for FA 2015
- have a couple of picks for 2014 and 2015 draft
- draft Embiid with own pick
- have enough cap space to sign another FA at SF (or SG, Giannis can play both)
- Knight and Henson 6th man
- draft Smart or Exum at PG
- resign Bradley (4y 24m) and Bayless (2y 8m)
Bucks say no.
Smith is future Amare contract. Probably cost a second round pick to get just so Det has the money to keep Monroe
Boston says. um no
23 Apr 2014 08:52:46
Another piston dream
Draft day trade
Det Pick 8 & 38 to chi for pick 16 & 19
Draft A. payne & best sharpshooting /3D sf left
Sign Lance Stephenson 4yr 40-44mil
S&t Monroe for Bledsoe
Trade smith for KG/stat/barg
Trade Jennings for Nelson/expiring
2015 around 20+ mil cap sign Love+ sf or bench depth
#s work but it's not going to happen but what a squad if it did.
Suns won't trade Bledsoe
Bledsoe far more value than Monroe atleast to the SUNS as Monroe does not fit in the Suns scheme.
^why not? A center like Monroe would be awesome on suns.
I didn't think I put anything to crazy in this post.
I admit, suns do need a low-post presence like Monroe who can score with his back to the basket. Just not for the asking price of Bledsoe. He's the future of our team. Just make Monroe an offer in FA and if pistons match, work a s&t built around our draft picks, not Bledsoe
23 Apr 2014 04:08:44
Bulls monroe 4y 50m
Det butler Gibson 1st dp
Amenstie boozer sign melo trade dunlevey
Bulls are not giving up that much for Monroe.
23 Apr 2014 03:59:09
Pistons - Pelicans - Pacers
Pistons trade G Monroe (s&t)
Pistons get E Gordon, Pelicans future 1st round pick
Pelicans trade E Gordon, Pelicans future 1st round pick
Pelicans get R Hibbert
Pacers trade R Hibbert
Pacers get G Monroe (s&t)
Must be a Pelicans fan - Pistons and Pacers get hosed. No way can you parlay a bad contract player (Gordon) into Hibbert, or even Monroe. xxx
