Knicks get Embiid
76ers get #4 pick
25 May 2015 19:51:42
Nuggets get #4 pick, Calderon, Hardaway, Larkin, Early
Knicks get Lawson, Faried, and future 2nd rounder.
Nuggets go into full rebuild.
Knicks flip their pick and a couple young role players for 2 above average starters.
25 May 2015 17:33:42
Bucks gets: Kanter S&T, Lamb
Cavs gets: Ilyasova, Novak
Thunder gets: Shumpert S&T
Bucks gets a 22 year old starting C to go along with their young core. Lambs contract is expiring and can be a 1 year project for them.
Cavs do this move if Love leaves in FA. Get a similar player on the offensive end to fit with their system. Novak is also expiring but is a veteran 3-point shooter.
Thunder gets a new starting SG that can be their 3 and D player they desperately needs. Saves some money by not resigning Kanter and move Lamb and Novak.
25 May 2015 19:54:51
I like this trade it would be good for the bucks
25 May 2015 20:05:05
25 May 2015 17:09:33
Wolves take Towns
Lakers take Russell
This starts a draft day bidding battle for #3 since the Sixers really don't want another BIG.
Ths Sixers are willing to go no further than #8. Denver steps up to the plate, since they need a BIG desperately and know that the Kings are focused on WCS.
Nuggets get #3 #35
Sixers get #7, the rights to the better of the 2016 1st rounder of the Knicks or Nuggets (the worse going to Toronto). Sixers also get the Portland protected pick currently owned by Denver (top 15 protected). The Nuggets still have a pick next year, the Top 5 protected pick of the Grizzlies.
Nuggets draft Okafor at #3
Sixers get their choice of whoever is left of Mudiay, Winslow, Hezonja or Porzingis. Two of these guys will be available at 7.
2016 Draft: SIxers now own:
Their own pick
The better of the Denver/Knicks pick
The Lakers top 3 protected pick
The Heat top 10 protected pick
The OKC top 15 protected pick
The Blazers top 15 protected pick
25 May 2015 17:38:34
Denver already has a good young center. No need to trade up for Okafor.
25 May 2015 20:04:22
This is the kind of deal I was thinking as well. But
. I would just take okafor though. Find a rotation of okafor Noel and embiid that works probably with t rob or sims filling out the roster. We have to be willing to take best player available until we are sure of the guys we have. Can't be sure on embiid yet. I think Noel is solid and has huge upside for a two way player. Okafor is the Noel on offense. He's got upside on defense but not there yet. Embiid is a wild card. Either way we never have foul trouble in any game at the big spot. Never have a bad big man on the floor. If I can't get Russell I got to take okafor and build from their.
25 May 2015 15:08:47
Golden St. - Minnesota
G.S. Gets Kevin Martin and Chase Budinger
Minn. Gets David Lee, Harrison Barnes, and pick 30
Minn. Uses trade exemption from K. Love to make salary's match and gets a wing with long term potential .
G.S. Saves enough salary to sign D. Green to max, Budinger is a similar player to Barnes with less long term potential, and Martin gives them great depth at the 2.
25 May 2015 14:00:49
DET get 4th pick and Calderon
NY get Reggie Jackson and 2nd round pick
- Knicks sign Monroe and Asik
25 May 2015 15:05:31
Jesus, Knicks wouldn't do that if it was just swapping from 4 to 9.
25 May 2015 19:50:19
Jackson can't be signed or dealt until after the draft.
25 May 2015 20:06:19
Detroit wouldn't do that because they don't want calderon and who are they going to get at the fourth pick no PG better then Jackson at this point in their careers. Sorry Jackson is going to resign with the Pistons they will keep their pick and the Knicks will stink again.
25 May 2015 13:57:00

Lance born ready stephenson to the Knicks going to have a huge year Brings the perimeter d the Knicks needs he's from new York kid has talent is 24 it's the time to grab him Charlotte would prob trade him
Hardaway calderone for stephenson early future picks for born ready Stephenson he will give the Knicks extra life next year and finally a guy who can guard the one two or three
25 May 2015 10:59:20
"Born Ready" needs a change of scenary. Then again what happens if Hardaway has a breakout year ala Jimmy Buckets?
J.R Smith, Shump now Hardaway?
25 May 2015 15:15:59
Hardaway is no where near the player born ready is lance owns the record for the most points in New York high school history he has the mean streak the Knicks need he will be coming home he can shut down three positions and is the aggressive sg we need in the triangle Hardaway is unproven I mean hardaway couldn't break out this year thts bad when u r on such a bad team your numbers shoUld go up significantly if your worth keeping. let's sau u put lance on the Knicks this year coming off a year when u led the league in triple doubles lance would of put up huge numbers for the knicks this year. I think born ready is a difference maker hardaway is at best a role player
We hardof got more for shumpert or kept him when he's playing confident he is a shut down defender
I don't Care about Jr he had big games because trash Kyle korver was guarding him. He will get shut down vs golden st. I'm more sad about letting Chandler and moZgov
pg Beverly hard nose new york kid great defender perfect for the triangle he can hit the threes and defend
sg/sf lance the kid stephenson pair him up with Beverly thts two tough new york defenders harrasing opponents
sf melo Winslow bazemore Winslow adds tht Jimmy butler do it all type guy
pf/c Munroe will be great for this lineup, at the right price Amir Johnson he's a do it all big man or ed davis,Wright would be good bargani if we could bring him bk cheap Speights,scola,antic any combo of two of those guys with munroe then fuck it bring okafor or Bynum for the minimum huge upsides if they don't work out there out the door
ThT knicks team healthy with a lil more depth off bench could of beat Atlanta this year then the knicks will be set up perfect for a big free agency lance Beverly and Winslow will give them high quality for a low price
Keep Galloway sved Greek freak 2 and early
Lance melo Munroe will catch a lot of hate all three guys will gel nicely
25 May 2015 15:16:21
Long answer short question
25 May 2015 06:20:22
Thunder: Jones, lamb pick 48 novak
Nuggets: Chandler, erick green
Thunder draft Devin booker
25 May 2015 18:05:10
Thunder would be stupid if they draft booker because they r going to have to have another big like montrezl
25 May 2015 06:16:02
Any Ideas for an OKC Draft day trade or players they should take?
25 May 2015 10:05:25
D.Waiters, P.Jones and 48th pick for W.Chandler
25 May 2015 18:05:36
25 May 2015 06:11:11
Clippers re-shaped team
Clips get - Lopez Matthews 1st round pick
Por get - Jordan
Clips get - Dragic and Deng
Mia get Paul, Barnes, and Reddick
Clips draft Justin Anderson
25 May 2015 07:59:37
• Jordan, Lopez, & Matthews are all free agents; can't do sign & trade with draft picks since the draft is before teams can negotiate with free agents
• Even if you could, the Clippers still dot have any depth with this trade and I don't see any improvement anywhere
25 May 2015 10:02:16
All those guys r free agents I think clippers need to let deandre go or Paul go Blake is the future no matter what I think the team is better off buildinh around two of the guys unfortunately now u won't get anything for Jordan
This team Needs 2 way players at 2 and 3 barnes is done
I think they should target lance Stephenson with a trade Charlotte needs shooting dangle reddick and Crawford out there lance had a off year but he's 24 he is a year off from leading the league in triple doubles this kid can bring so much to clippers defense he can guard towwor threes
I have teams like Toronto trying to reload Detroit is offering pieces for shooters And there pick
Toronto has everyone up for trade if you could find a way to get a la kid tht can bring great abilities derozan and Ross would be nice pieces to add
Other wings you could look at thru Trade Wilson Chandler batum ariza
As far as free agents a guy like Danny green would be a upgrade over reddick Mathews too Maybe they can get a hometown discount on affalo or Lopez if deandre leaves Ellis would be nice piced
If they keep there big 3 then they will have to try to trade horrible reddick haWes even upgrade at back up pg they would probably have to rely on signing veterans like Paul pierce on a one year deal Gerald green brewer Crowder aminu r all cheap options at sf
trade for stephenson pierce for vets minimum him and paul will get best oit of stephenson ed davis brewer and I spent enough time on the clips
25 May 2015 05:59:17
BOS get Roy Hibbert
DEN get Boston 1st 2015, Gerald Wallace (waive) and George Hill
IND get Wilson Chandler and Ty Lawson
25 May 2015 02:24:47
Kings get Calderon, Hardaway, Larkin, Early, and #4 pick
Knicks get DeMarcus Cousins
Kings shed Cousins' salary who doesn't fit with George Karl's system and has a bad history with behavior and go into a full rebuild. They will have the #4 and #6 picks to build their team around along with McLemore, Stauskas, Hardaway, Early, Larkin and a ton of cap space.
Knicks get a proven superstar to put alongside Melo that will improve their chances of winning right away instead of waiting for whoever they would select with the #4 pick to develop while Melo grows old. Phil Jackson will have to work with Cousins on his character though.
25 May 2015 08:12:23
Not enough for Cousins
25 May 2015 10:09:56
mhm idk about tht they would have two top 10 picks and could get a stud at 4 but I would throw all three of lakers picks Nick young hIll for cousins
Trade the 4 pick Calderone hardaway for proven star tht can put up points and has a good contract ty lawson if you could get Kenneth if not wilson Chandler
Danny green just play with no bench
25 May 2015 01:51:01
CHI get LaMarcus Aldridge and Nic Batum
POR get Wilson Chandler, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Bulls future 1st round pick
DEN get Tony Snell and 2nd from Bulls
24 May 2015 22:57:13
Pacers get Ariza WCS-4TH T.Jones Calderon
Knicks get P.George Howard Hill Mahinmi
Rockets get Melo Hibbert
24 May 2015 23:11:38
Howard will never play PF. Drop the idea
24 May 2015 23:28:14
great trade for the knicks, I think the Pacers say NO immediately.
25 May 2015 18:53:22
Rockets say no they don't need another ball hog
24 May 2015 22:28:00
76ers rebuild possibilities:
1. Drafting DeAngelo Russell is key.
2. Although Embiid, Noel, and TRobinson are a good upfront three, I think Hinkie would like to add a PF who could stretch the defense. unfortunately there are rumors that Hinkie loves Porzingis. I cringe to think he may take him #3. But I propose another option. Frank Kaminsky. If Kaminsky drops to the 10-12 range, which is possible, maybe sixers can put together a package of future picks(miamis #1, OKC's#1, maybe take back some salary and add pick #35 this year) to land him. He has been lighting it up at workouts, and has been called the best player on the floor by a number of scouts. granted the top tier guys aren't there, but he could be a steal.
3. Still hope to sign Khris Middleton. A 6'8" SG who is 23 and on the verge of stardom. maybe overpay a bit, but will be worth it in the long run. Overpaying this year will be underpaying when the cap jumps in 2017.
4. Do Not resign jrich, mbah a mote, canaan, Sampson.
5. Still have own #1, Lakers #1, and Saric coming over next year.
PG: Russell(19)/Wroten/(Ish or P.Jack)
SG: Middleton(23)/McCrae, HThompson
PF: Noel(21)/ Kaminsky/ TRobinson
25 May 2015 01:11:30
• I think the Lakers will draft Russellif they don't get Towns
• Middleton is Restricted and I don't see the Bucks not matching any offer he gets
On a side note, MIL has a crazy back court and will present matchup nightmares if Carter-Williams can improve his outside shooting.
PG = 6'-6" (Carter-Williams)
SG = 6'-8" (Middleton)
SF= 6'-11" (Giannis)
25 May 2015 01:47:56
If we draft pozingus. At the three spot. I'm quiting the Sixers. That means I choose him over Russell mudiay or okafor. I'd be completely on the Fire hinkie bandwagon. We've been patient as a fan base. Don't screw us now by not getting the best players available.
25 May 2015 02:06:21
Russell is going to be a really good pro IMO.
25 May 2015 14:31:38
The Sixers will not draft Pozingus at 3. Should Russell be gone and if the Sixers do not want Mudiay, there will be big demand for the #3 pick, since one of the two bigs will be there. So the Sixers have to explore the idea of trading down and how far to trade down. Or, they might just be exploring the idea of trading down anyhow.
An interesting option would be to trade down with Denver and land in the 7 spot where someone like Pozingus or Hezonja or Winslow would be available. The Nuggets own the right to swap picks with NY next season. Denver also owns the rights to the Memphis pick (top 5 protected for a couple of years then completely unprotected).
What we're seeing right now is a huge game of NBA poker. Everyone's trying to bluff everyone else into panicking and giving up picks when they don't have to. I suspect the Lakers really want one of the two bigs but are trying to get the Sixers to move up 1 slot to get Russell, but after throwing in one of their stockpile of future 1st rounders.
25 May 2015 18:16:31
Dont expect sixers trading down from their pick. If russell goes to the Lakers then they would select mudiay. I would be very cool if we get him at 3. Hinkie loves him too and he was the only gm to go and watch him in China. And he will be a very productive player in this league and he might turn out to be better than russell. But at this point russell is a better player but mudiay in 3 years can work on his game with a great coach in brett Brown. I have a feeling that russell has already hit his ceiling while mudiay has has a lot more room to grow. I want mudiay because I feel he can be a more productive leader and overall player than russell.
24 May 2015 21:42:16
NOP receives sign & trade Greg Monroe for 4 years 64 million
DET receives Ryan Anderson and 2nd round pick
This is a lopsided trade for NOP but because DET isn't looking to keep Monroe, DET will do it because they are not going to find a better replacement in free agency than Anderson who has played with van gundy before and fits their shooting needs. Monroe is also a good fit in NOP because he will complement AD well who will make up for his defense.
25 May 2015 02:07:13
I like it for both parties involved.
25 May 2015 20:08:52
I agree Detroit does this and not as lopsided as you might think Anderson will be the stretch four they need to have Drummond improve and get some room to work also opens up the driving lanes for Jackson and KCP. The Second round pick could be a depth player or a grab and stash player.
25 May 2015 20:35:10
I like the trade. Pels can let Asik walk and pick up a SF
24 May 2015 21:39:09
Mavs trade at 29.06.
-1st and 2nd 2015
01.07. Sign FA
-Aldridge max or 1+1y as he wants
-If Ellis opt out sign Matthews for 10m 4y or 1+1y as he wants
- Resign Chandler and the Vets
- Sign Aminu for MLE 4y 20m
25 May 2015 00:56:03
25 May 2015 02:08:09
Only way for the Mavs to deal Rondo would be via a sign-and-trade.
25 May 2015 19:42:39
you can't trade rondo. His contract is over. You can't trade free agents until 7/1 when free agency starts.
24 May 2015 21:33:29
Nuggets offseason plans:
Nuggets trade:Lawson/Chandler/Hickson/Clippers 2nd Round Pick/Portlands 2016 1st Round Pick
Sacramento trades: 6th pick/McLemore
Nuggets trade: Faried/Harris/Foye
Detroit trades: 8th pick/Dinwiddie
Offer Ellis max contract because Denver will rid themselves of Faried's/Lawson's big contracts and Ellis would fit play style and offer 3 point shooting. Also resign Will Barton.
Nuggets would be able to run easy, stretch the floor, and play fast.
25 May 2015 00:57:03
Faried's contract is awful, Foye is an average player, and Harris has shown nothing.
24 May 2015 20:19:37
Whats a good deal for Hill Young 27th 34th pick?
24 May 2015 21:12:06
Lakers: Hill, Young, 27th, 34th
Pistons: Jennings, C.Butler
25 May 2015 17:25:23
No on Jennings we got Clarkson
25 May 2015 20:10:13
Nobody wants Hill and the Pistons just got rid of a head case no way SVG makes this trade. Hill is a good player and can play four or five but I doubt anybody would do this trade.
24 May 2015 18:47:55
Cleveland Cavs Should Trade Tristan Thompson For Marvin Williams #Cavs
25 May 2015 00:42:49
Thompson is much better than Williams, and should Love leave, Thompson is going to be a very important piece.
25 May 2015 00:58:26
Thompson is twice the player.
24 May 2015 17:50:52
Melo trade ideas?
24 May 2015 20:37:18
I don't think Knicks will end up trading Melo or he will waive his no-trade clause to leave NY, but this may be an interesting option:
Pacers get C.Anthony
Knicks get G.Wallace, 11th pick, 16th pick and 2016 1st round pick (from Pacers)
Celtics get R.Hibbert
24 May 2015 20:45:22
Melo have a no trade clause so Lakers or Bulls are the only realistic options.
Lakers: Melo, Calderon
Knicks: 2nd overall, Randle, 27th (Houston)
Knicks: Gibson, McDermott, Butler (S&T)
25 May 2015 04:59:03
To WAS - Melo
To NYK - Nene, Porter, Sessions, 2015 1st, 2017 1st
The Knicks don't get the better of this trade, but it serves a couple of purposes. Nene and Sessions can contribute at positions the Knicks have a bare cupboard in, and are both FA's at the end of 15-16, giving the Knicks big cap flexibly next offseason.
Porter has the potential to be a good SF, and the Knicks could land another starter or solid rotation piece with the '15 pick.
25 May 2015 17:04:29
Pelicans get C.Anthony
Knicks get T.Evans, R.Anderson and 2016 1st round pick
25 May 2015 20:36:20
Too much to give for an aging high dollar contract player
24 May 2015 15:43:55
Celtics gets: Pekovic
Minnesota gets: 16th (Celtics), 30th (Warriors) Wallace, Lee (Both expiring)
Celtics gets a much needed starting C. With all their young talent and future firsts they don´t need this years pick.
Minnesota gets two expring conracts and two more firsts this year. Can package the firsts and move up in the draft or draft and stash players overseas.
The Warriors saves 10 million and can resign Green. Martin fits well with their offensive system.
24 May 2015 15:57:30
Celtics do need a yet a one that protects the rim. They can get a better one in FA.
25 May 2015 00:59:27
Pek can't stay healthy and isn't worth his contract.
25 May 2015 03:59:54
Pek for Wallace and pick 16 is fair, but G.S. Getting a good player in Martin, unloading David Lee's contract for pick 30 is'st even close.
25 May 2015 17:58:45
1)@xxx. Perkins is a UFA
2)@mags. If Pekovic could play 70 games a year it would be a good deal but he doesn't, he averages 51 and only 31 games this past year and is signed for another 3 yrs. at a little less than 36 mil (which is a great deal for a healthy Nikola). So maybe a FA signing may be better for someone like Monroe or even Jordan if they can live with the FT fiasco. Wallace and the 28th pick for a mid second rounder and then stash that pick overseas.
24 May 2015 15:04:35
Kings gets: Faried, Lawson
Nuggets gets: 4th, 6th, Calderon, Hardaway Jr, Landry
Knicks gets: 7th, Collision, W.Chandler
24 May 2015 15:54:59
Knicks don't want short players
24 May 2015 16:07:36
A short PG in the triangle? Like Derek Fisher? Chandler makes them big at the SG and Melo
Makes them even bigger at SF. WCS is a 7 footer at C.
24 May 2015 18:19:09
This isn't a good trade for he Knicks. Collision isn't as good as the top two pg in the draft. Wcs may be a great college defender. But that means nothing in the pros. At least right away for a center. So the Knicks have no real power in the front court. It's a bad trade for the Knicks.
24 May 2015 20:39:11
Bad trade? Move down 3 spots in the draft and gets 2 starters. Show me a better realistic deal and I believe you.
24 May 2015 09:29:49
Lakers - Bulls
Lakers Trade: 2015 2nd Overall Pick, 2015 34th Overall Pick, Jordan Hill

It's not a sign and trade
