Indy: Harris+ gallinari

Clippers: T Evans+ Young+bogdanovic

Gasupo

1.) 15 Nov 2018 22:42:42
This would make absolutely no sense at all for the clippers.


 

 

15 Nov 2018 08:22:37
Should the Spurs go for a rebuilt?

spurs: S hill+ Moore+W Matthews+ 1rnd pick Dal 2019+ 1rnd pick NO 2019 and 2021+ 2rnd pick Dal 2020

Dall: LM Aldridge

NO: Derozan

Gasupo

1.) 15 Nov 2018 11:45:04
Mavs traded their pick for Doncic.


2.) 15 Nov 2018 15:47:16
damn, how could i've missed that :-)


3.) 15 Nov 2018 15:58:16
It's a new season! I've missed picks and salary in a lot of trades. Was a lot sharper last season.


4.) 15 Nov 2018 18:03:34
I don't think Spurs need to do a complete rebuild yet.


 

 

13 Nov 2018 08:59:19
Portland: K Love

Cle: E Turner+ Nurkic

Gasupo

1.) 13 Nov 2018 14:03:14
I don’t see the Cavs having much interest in Nurkic. He’s a solid center, but he just doesn’t have much upside. Trading Love just to trade him doesn’t make much sense. They need to wait until they can get something of value back. At some point, someone will get desperate. Either a team flailing at the deadline or a team this summer, who loses free agent musical chairs. There options will be trade for Love or throw a ton of money at a guy like D’angelo russell or worse.


2.) 13 Nov 2018 17:34:39
Both blazers have been playing well this season, I don’t think this deal could get done w/ o Love playing well post-injury.


3.) 13 Nov 2018 17:53:51
I wouldn't trade Nurkic for Love. They're similar quality players (third option on a good team) at this point, but Nurkic makes 1/ 3 of Love's salary. Love's definitely a bit better, but not enough to lose a bargain contract on a solid player.

LA: E Gordon+ B Knight+ 1rnd pick 2019, 2021,2023 and 2025

Hou: LBJ

I know it's crazy, but it seems that LA can't convince a second star to play next to LBJ, so why not trust the proces and built a team around Ingram-Ball-Kuzma.
Golden State is to strong to beat the next two or three years.

LA would have 11 draft picks in the next seven years and the capspace to sign two max contract in 2020 (A Davis and...)

Gasupo

1.) 12 Nov 2018 20:04:44
If Pels lost Davis, i'd be pissed but at least it would be kinda funny if they dealt Lebron outta the way to do so.


2.) 12 Nov 2018 22:48:20
Change Gordon with Capela, add McGee and I would be all over it for both of them.


3.) 13 Nov 2018 00:08:31
LBJ is exposing how underdeveloped Ingram is. Ingram is in his third season and looks like he made no strides in the off season. He isn't strong enough. You can tell. He gets lanky and distorted with the slightest bump in the air. His core is weak. Needs more muscle mass. If it's win now or develop Ingram, that needs to be decided and probably has. I'd play KCP and Stephenson in front him from what I'm seeing this season but then I'd have to play him in the 2nd unit and couldn't hide him as easily.


4.) 13 Nov 2018 00:29:33
knight And capella plus 4 first ain't worth LBJ. Maybe next year if no Star join lbj with 38 mil on cap space Lakers could trade him.


 

 

12 Nov 2018 09:12:51
Golden state: Beal+ 1rnd pick Was

Was: K Thompson+ Evans

Gasupo

1.) 12 Nov 2018 10:13:09
Not enough from Washington.


2.) 12 Nov 2018 10:34:52
Yeah, but maybe Golden state can keep K durant in this case.
K Thompson took a discount last time, so he could want a max contract this time.

An All Star and a unprotected draft pick is a good return for a player that could be gone next year.


3.) 12 Nov 2018 15:32:14
GSW is going to sign all of their guys. Just because it's expensive doesn't automatically mean they won't do it. The year after the grand building opening is when I expect guys to leave, and of course when losing starts.


4.) 12 Nov 2018 16:06:35
Golden state wouldn’t trade Klay the guy is taking below what he is worth,


5.) 12 Nov 2018 18:42:01
@Gasupo, I think you let Durant go before Thompson if there is a financial issue but GSW will keep all 4. Plenty of Players trying to get a ring late in their career that will fill in bench and backup spots cheap.


6.) 13 Nov 2018 00:21:57
Dac813, happens to all the top tier teams. Rasheed Wallace was 36 in the finals with the celtics playing big minutes against the Lakers! Great point.

Is there a team in the East that could make a move for K Durant?

I can't find a trade that GS would do for KD.

Gasupo

1.) 15 Nov 2018 15:51:35
There will be no trade. There is no one better than or equal to Durant to trade for. GSW is still going to try for a title regardless of who crapped in who's cornflakes.


2.) 15 Nov 2018 17:02:51
Tatum and Horford/ Hayward?

But yeah, at the end of the day Btec is right. GS wouldn't consider moving Durant unless he just walked away from the team and sat out games (which he wouldn't) .

I 've seen the movie Draft Day, about the draft in the NFL.

They offer three second round picks for a lottery pick.

I can't image you can get a lottery pick in basketball for some second round picks.

Are second round picks in NFL more important than in the NBA?

Gasupo

1.) 17 Sep 2018 12:54:53
There are no lottery picks in the NFL and I’ve never seen the movie, so I don’t know what pick it was, but it’s not completely ridiculous to think 3 2nds could get you a middle of the 1st type pick in the nfl. There are 7 rounds in the NFL draft. Almost all of the 2nd founders are going to be on a roster that year and a fair amount of them will either start or play a real role with the team.


2.) 17 Sep 2018 15:43:31
Yeah, 7 rounds vs 2. Think about this comparison:

If the NBA draft was broken into 7 sections, “Round” 1 would be picks 1-9, “Round” 2 would be picks 10-18. It’s possible to imagine a team would trade their pick #45 for picks 10 and 12.


3.) 17 Sep 2018 16:03:21
It's the sixth pick.
And i'm European, so a don't understand NFL :-)


4.) 17 Sep 2018 16:36:10
*pick 4 or 5.


5.) 17 Sep 2018 21:00:54
Yeah, under most circumstances 3 2nds isn’t getting you to the 6th unless they were all high 2nd rounders that year or something. The NFL has 53 roster spots to fill and given all of the injuries and special teams, most of those guys will play atleast a little bit. Plus given the variance in talent that the better college football teams have to the lesser ones and schemes, it’s harder to evaluate the talent. Where the NBA has plenty of tape of Bamba playing Ayton, Jackson and etc from AAU of in college, the NFL might only have a few plays of an elite lineman going up against an elite d line man. Plus if the lineman’s team is an air raid spread or a triple option team, you man have almost no tape of them run blocking or no tape pass blocking. There are just a lot more variables.

Minny: M Turner+ Young

Indy: Butler

Gasupo

1.) 22 Aug 2018 05:56:51
Maybe include Rabb too? Or a first? But the framework of Turner for Butler makes sense to me.


2.) 22 Aug 2018 11:49:54
Rabb plays for the grizzlies.


3.) 22 Aug 2018 14:18:53
Oops, meant Leaf. Same difference, a second year skinny PF.


4.) 22 Aug 2018 16:46:01
Why would the T-Wolves need Turner if they have Towns? Turner is better than nothing, but I would think they would go after a position they need.


5.) 22 Aug 2018 17:26:40
Turner seems like he can play some PF as well (so could Townes at least offensively) . I think Turner and Townes would work together. I know most teams have gone away from two traditional bigs, but it's not impossible for them to work together.


6.) 22 Aug 2018 19:10:15
Turner is an underrated defensive big. Averaged almost 2 blks a game last season Sort of the opposite of towns and an improved shooter last season. Why would twolves need towns, turner, Dieng? Good question.


7.) 22 Aug 2018 19:47:07
The wolves would want all 3 because Dieng isn't a starting caliber NBA player. Turner is.

Exactly Btec, Turner can cover some of Towns' limitations defensively and stretch the floor. Feel like a good fit together.


8.) 23 Aug 2018 02:12:24
The wolves trade butler which is a position of need they have Wiggins,2rookies, rose and a guy from Europe and you have them taking 2 bigs so the wolves would have towns Turner young dieng Patton and Tolliver wow that’s brilliant Btec you absolutely know nothing about basketball.


9.) 23 Aug 2018 05:50:11
Cde2812 I have no idea why you are posting lies about things I didn't say? I didn't say this trade was a good idea or bad one. Just what type of player turner is and agreeing with you, they have quite a few big guys. What is your problem with me? Second post you are accusing me of saying things I didn't say? If there's some other reason you are doing this just state it and let's deal with it. I don't really appreciate the obvious and provable lies I didn't say that you are accusing me of saying. They are in the posts for all to see. Take it easy, you only have 1 life!


10.) 28 Aug 2018 14:19:35
Btec. why are all your posts about claiming to be cyber bullied. You make statements, people disagree. You are the only one ranting. then the best part, you say take it easy, perhaps you should.


 

 

13 Aug 2018 13:52:50
Both The Nets and the Clippers have losing records most of the time, but they have a rich owner and they're in a big market. Do you guys believe they can become a big free agent destination in the future?

Gasupo

1.) 13 Aug 2018 15:38:31
Nets: Maybe
Clippers: Probably not

If someone wants to go to LA, the Lakers beat them, so the Clippers probably can't draw much so long as the Lakers have cap space/ flexibility.

As much as NY is talked about as a major draw, I don't actuallly believe it is. The Nets are an improving franchise with a solid front office finally, so they could turn it around. But I'll believe it when I see it.

NY is a lot like Notre Dame in college football, it rides off of history from before I was born.


2.) 13 Aug 2018 18:03:42
Clippers had a winning record last year didn't they? Haven't they also had a pretty good ladt 5-7 seasons in terms of winning? It's not like they are the kings or something.


3.) 13 Aug 2018 18:32:15
Lob city had a great run, but they didn't play a conference final.
Before lob city they had a winning record in 2006 (47-35) With Brand and Maggete as stars.
They made the playoffs in 96 with only 36 wins and L Vaught and B williams as star players
And the 1991-1993 Clippers had two playoff first round exits with M Jackson- R Harper and D Manning.
And the San Diego Clippers never made it to the playoffs.

The Clippers could be the kings :-) :-) :-)


4.) 13 Aug 2018 19:49:14
The clippers would have been the kings if not for the Paul>Lakers trade veto. If Paul goes to the Lakers, the Clippers are basically the Kings (griffin and cousins leading bad teams) .

They’ve never pulled a meaningful free agent.

They did have a nice run, and I don’t think they go back to the Clippers of old. They’ll be a decent team with their ownership and management. But I don’t think that high end free agents will consider them.


5.) 13 Aug 2018 22:15:18
We will find out next summer. Brooklyn will have 2 max slots with some young talent.


6.) 14 Aug 2018 14:10:32
1st bmiller your talking about the 2 most popular cities in the country, brooklyn existed less than 10 yrs in brooklyn and your comparing them to notre dame. Worst part is the people who believe you. that's la and ny haters like u. U should say that about knicks and lakers, you might have a point. let's face it any player if the situation or cap is right, would choice lakers and knicks before any other city bc of marketing money.


7.) 14 Aug 2018 14:21:46
Brooklyn and Clippers far better attraction to free agents than Portland.


8.) 14 Aug 2018 15:32:29
Yeah, and Portland can't land a major free agent. They never have, they never will. I know that about my team. Knicks fans lie to themselves that they're still a free agent destination, when they're not. If Portland and the Knicks both had max FA money, I would expect both to waste it on a player like Kanter (Portland originally signed that deal, the Knicks now own it! )

You say that any player would pick the Knicks, but only one (Amare) has in the last 20 years. No one wants to play for the Knicks. It's probably more to do with the horrible ownership and management than the city, but I really think that the "mecca of basketball" thing isn't true anymore.

I'm not a big city hater, I'm a realist. The Lakers are a destination. Miami is a destination. The Knicks aren't. The Clippers aren't. That's not my opinion, that's history.


9.) 14 Aug 2018 16:13:23
Just because of the long term success, the way they’ve treated their stars/ former stars, history of the Lakers, and all of the players in the history of the franchise, it’s hard to imagine the Clippers ever having any where near the pull that the Lakers have. They’re so far from equal footing that I don’t think the Clippers will ever have much more than a slight advantage over the smaller market teams in free agency.

It’s much easier to think the Nets could draw closer to the Knicks. It’s not like the Knicks have pulled a ton of elite free agents, as long as Dolan is the owner player have to worry about that mess, the franchise has been pretty bad for the past 20+ years, it’s overal history is overstated in general, and they’ve treated former stars terribly. It’s not hard to imagine the Nets proving over the next ten years that they’re the destination in New York and pulling close to even as a free agent destination long term.


10.) 14 Aug 2018 18:04:56
The Mecca of basketball is L. A. Bmiller66. NY is just a city where it is played. The true blue meca is Kansas, that's where it began, but L. A. Is the capital city of basketball in America now. Seattle used to be a big one too, and still is, just not in the NBA.


11.) 14 Aug 2018 21:40:11
The "Mecca of Basketball" is NY. That's what they call it. I didn't make that up.

My point was what you said though, that LA is really the current basketball capital. At least for pro basketball.


12.) 15 Aug 2018 00:21:54
Nobody wants to play in ny Porzingis doesn’t even want to play there and that (huge trade for carmelo) well we all know how that turned out! The owner and front office is a joke! And I can’t wait till Brooklyn gets jimmy and kyrie. I live in manhattan 4 months out of the year so I’ll actually see exciting basketball!


13.) 16 Aug 2018 00:00:14
It started in Ontario where James Naismith was born and brought it to merica.


 

 

24 Jul 2018 08:05:21
The Nets have the money to sign 3 big free agents next year.
Do you think they will be able to get a big three?

Gasupo

1.) 24 Jul 2018 11:13:19
No they are still the nets. No Kawhi kawhi Leonard super team.


2.) 24 Jul 2018 12:22:41
Paul Pearce, Kevin Garnett, derron Williams just joking you poor nets fans maybe Kyrie and jimmy buckets.


3.) 24 Jul 2018 13:20:00
If you want to form a super team, the Nets would have to be an appealing spot. Big market, ton of cash, they’ll have Aa high pick, easier path in the east, and they have some nice players to complement the stars. If you can get to stars, like Rad suggested, that want to play together, it would be appealing.

What picks?

I think Indy could trade Turner, but we don't need Fultz. I still think he has potential, but we already have Oladipo.

Brooklyn could do this without the pick.
Melo would sell some jerseys in NY

Carroll would be a good rollplayer for Houston.

it's a fair trade, but like you say, Portland is winning, so why would they do this?
