Sixer's trade Covington and heat 2016 1st round pick
Sixer's receive Harrison Barnes
Warriors trade Harrison Barnes
Warriors receive Heats 2016 1st round pick top 10 protected from Sixer's. Also receive Covington
I'm a Sixer's fan and would love to see Barnes here in philly. Warriors get good value for a bench player.
29 May 2015 14:34:41
Barnes is not a bench player, he's their starting SF
29 May 2015 14:56:47
Pretty sure it goes.
29 May 2015 16:05:33
No dude, Iggy comes off the bench
29 May 2015 12:46:47
Thunder could use some cap space and a cheap, solid player, one who can back up Durant.
Sixers send Covington to the Thunder along with pick #35
Thunder send Lamb and Waiters (two guys that have fallen out of their rotation) and pick #14 to the Sixers.
Thunder select Jakari Johnson, 7' Center from KY at #35
Sixers select either J. Grant from ND or use the #14 pick as a launching spot to move up further in the draft, utilizing either next year's Miami pick or next year's OKC pick to get closer to the top 10 (Stanley Johnson?)
The Sixers DO NOT waive Lamb or Waiters but give the two young guys an opportunity to be Sixers.
29 May 2015 12:57:35
Well, I would hate to give up RoCo, but this might be worth it. Good idea.
29 May 2015 13:15:06
Absolutely not worth it for the thunder.
Actually, I saw the guts of this trade somewhere else but sweetened the deal for the Thunder by including Waiters to clear up more cap space and giving them an extra 2nd rounder in return.
29 May 2015 14:47:42
Good one sixers fan Covington is not worth the 14 pick nice try
29 May 2015 16:14:01
Here's the thing "THE KING", you're wrong. Covington is much better than the average expected WS from a mid-1st draft pick and is actually on a much better contract.
28 May 2015 16:50:20
Raptors trade Amir n Ross n 2015 pick
To Heat for bosh
28 May 2015 16:26:28
Twolves draft night
1st pick draft D. Russel
Lakers take Towns 2nd
Trade Russel to Philly for 3rd and Heat's 2016 1st ( top 10 protected)
Trade Nemanja Bjelica and pick 36 to Dallas for pick 21
Draft J. Anderson
Draft Andrew Harrison with pick 31
28 May 2015 16:43:11
Very sneaky move, I love it. Rhubarb up everybody's plans by picking Russel first and force Philly into picking ANOTHER big guy.
If Philly decline you could always use Russel and Pekovic as bait for a guy like Boogie Cousins.
28 May 2015 17:46:25
And lose towns in the way, get ready for some regrets in the next couple of years.
28 May 2015 17:48:41
Sixers are not going to be held up for Russell. If he's gone, they'll either take the BIG that's left and go 3 man rotation up front (30 minutes per game per player) or hold an auction for that #3 pick, not moving down past 8.
Denver would be a good trading partner, since their front court is lousy and they have extra picks next year to sweeten the pot for the Sixers to drop to #7. At #7, one or two of the following will be available: Mudiay, Hezonja, Winslow, Porzingis. (WCS will be picked by the Kings).
28 May 2015 19:02:35
Sixer won't get held for ransoms on Russell. They hold okafor for ransome for one of the other teams that want him. Wolves would be stuck with not big men on the roster and way to many guards.
28 May 2015 22:11:21
Sixers pass. U guys honestly think they will hesitate on getting mudiay with the 3rd pick if russell is gone 1st overall. U guys r insane. At this point russell is a better player than mudiay but mudiay in 3 years CAN become a much better player than russell. And if that bum oak is there at 3 then sixers WILL pass on him or draft him and then trade him to Knicks. Sixers r good on bigs and need shooters and people who can deliver the ball to our bigs. And honestly if russell and mudiay r there at 3 then I strongly feel hinkie will draft mudiay. Russell is a kiss a** to the sixers. I don't like it when a player in the draft plays favorites. Mudiay all the way for me.
29 May 2015 09:32:52
This trade would destroy what MINN has been trying to do as a team. Hinkie would do exactly what PhillyRich1 said. or even better we could force NY`s hands, by taking that available BIG (Okafor) and trade him to them for Tim Hardaway Jr. and E. Mudiay.
28 May 2015 01:44:33
Lakers get Melo Hardaway Early Larkins
Kings get Okafor-2nd Mudiay-4th
Knicks get Cousins Young McCallum
Tyson Chandler 4yr 48mil comes home
1 last deep run for Kobe
Kings have great future
Mavs get Calderon Andersen 10-Turner
Heat get Felton 21 52
Knicks get Chalmers McRoberts
Knicks M.Gasol 4yr 80 D.Green & G.Green 4yr 40mil
Ajinca 4yr 20 mil MLE A.Anderson 2yr 5mil biannual
70mil Payroll 2015-16
28 May 2015 16:54:22
So cousins gets you 4th and 2nd overall?
28 May 2015 18:00:10
In kobe 2-3 window no play will be better than Melo in the draft. U also get 3 other 1st round players in rookie clearly Young salary. Remember lakers owe Kobe 1 more chance to win vs rebuild.
27 May 2015 12:16:28
bulls - heat - hornets
bulls get deng
heat get stephenson and marv will
hornets get gibson
27 May 2015 14:06:02
Heat say no.
They're not going to give up one more year of Deng at a reasonable salary to take on two really bad contracts in Lance and Marvin.
27 May 2015 10:23:20
heat - celtics - kings
heat get cousins thomas
celtics get dragic whiteside thompson
kings get smart olynyk 10th and deng
27 May 2015 16:19:27
Not enough for cousins.
27 May 2015 02:03:09
76ers / Heat
Miami has zero picks in next years draft. there #1 goes to philly and there #2 goes to Boston. Miami is also at guaranteed 70 million in cap Before resigning Dragic. That probably puts them in the 87 million range guaranteed next year. Sixers would love to get Heats #10 pick this year.
76ers Trade miamis #1 next year and OKC's #1 next year.
Miami trades #10 pick this year plus chalmers and Birdman($9.4 million in total salary dump).
Heat get two #1 picks next year(when they currently have no picks at all) and free up $11.4 million($5mill for birdman, $4.4 mill for chalmers, and $2mill from there #1 pick this year). Sixers cut birdman and possibly chalmers, and pick hezonja, kaminsky, porzingis, johnson, or oubre, whichever falls and is the BPA.
27 May 2015 09:05:57
Real good thinking. We'll c what happens.
27 May 2015 14:20:07
It's reasonable, but Heat may feel they need the infusion of talent now instead of next year. Both the Heat and the Thunder should be better next year, so those picks are more likely to be 15th through 25th instead of 10th.
27 May 2015 14:30:21
Sixers really want another pick in this draft. I think ideally they'd want Russell and Grant from ND.
I just don't think a team will completely take themselves out of this year's draft. A more likely scenario would be for the Sixers to acquire Gerald Wallace and the #16 pick from Boston. Sixers will have to give something back to the Celts for that.
THen use that #16 pick to swap with the Heat at #10.
THere's obviously missing parts to my concept but that would leave the Heat in this draft while still getting to #10 for the Sixers.
27 May 2015 16:21:36
Good trade. Heat should say yes on that salary dump/ getting more total picks. Even if they are next year. Sixers would probably keep charmers and cut bird man.
26 May 2015 19:46:38
Washington get Melo Early Hibbert 43rd
Knicks get Beal Porter Gortat
Pacers get Nene
Wizards prepare to combine Durant Melo Wall together 2016 with Pierce Humphries Hibbert off the book.
Pacers want to play faster
Heat get Calderon Hardaway
knicks get McRoberts Chalmers Napier
Knicks build deep team sign Jefferson Gasol Belinelli Dunleavy
26 May 2015 14:11:02
To CLE - Chris Bosh
To MIA - Kevin Love, Mike Miller
Love never fit in with the Cavs, as he was not willing to be a 3rd option on the team. Bosh proved during his time with LBJ and D-Wade that he could accept and flourish in the role. Putting him back together with LBJ just makes Cleveland more dangerous.
Love goes to a Miami team with an aging Wade, a good role player in Deng and hopefully a pick and roll partner in Dragic. Love becomes a larger focus in the offense, and gives the Heat a rebounding duo of him and Whiteside. Miller is just thrown in to match salaries, which hopefully him and Bron are ok with. Miller is most likely cut by the Heat at some point anyways.
26 May 2015 15:56:32
To CLE - Chris Bosh, McRoberts
To MIA - Kevin Love, Haywood (Team option 10million), Future 1st
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 21:44:01
Well said TreGib
25 May 2015 21:56:20
What about mudiay. We need to start building a starting lineup and oak is not the answer. He really isn't that good. He is way overrated and kaminsky and towns r way better than him. He is a bum and frank proved that he ain't s***.
26 May 2015 10:15:42
you can take either Mudiay or Winslow
26 May 2015 13:45:59
What's being missed is that the Nuggets have the right to swap picks with the Knicks. That opportunity is unprotected by draft position. That's extremely unusual for the NBA and an opportunity/gamble just too tempting for Hinkie. That could literally be the top pick in the draft next season if Melo simply turns his ankle stepping onto a sidewalk.
So Denver gets their big guy to help their abysmal front court. The Sixers still get a desired player at #7 plus another "asset" for HInkie to play with. The Sixers could end up with their own pick, LA pick and Knicks pick all in the top 10 next year. Plus have MIami and OKC picks later in the draft to use as sweeteners.
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 03:46:45
Detriot get Ariza T.Jones
Rockets get Melo Monroe 5yr deal
Knicks get Howard
Mavs get Calderon Andersen Turners-10
Heat get Larkin Hardaway Portis-25 Diagne-52
Knicks get Chalmers Napier McRoberts
Knicks sign Danny & Gerald Green and Marc Gasol
24 May 2015 16:05:53
First off how did Dteroit get Hardaway? What happen to KCP? THis is the problem with your posting. First off KCP is not going anywhere not for Hardaway that is for sure. Second Petteway is a SF not a SG. Third Ariza is not going anywhere the Rockets need him as he has been their most consistant defender and player in the playoffs. Martin has been told he won't be back, Gray was cut before last season and is out of the NBA with an injury that cut his career short and Anthony is a Center. Jennings is on ths team still and nobody not Detroit for sure wants Calderon Dinwiddle is the backup for now as he showed promise in his playing time before the injury. Detroit will stay put with its team maybe make a S&T with Monroe if possible, but sign a couple of FA Jackson is going to be one of them. This posting shows you have no clue about Detroit or the NBA
23 May 2015 00:14:49
Knicks get P.George Stevenson 9th
Pacers get MKG Marv-Will-exp
Hornets get Melo Rudez - Jordan gets Melo to buy in
Heat get Hardaway Larkin Upshaw-21 Diagne-52
Mavs get Calderon Andersen Turner-10
Knicks get Chalmers McRobert Napier
Kings get Napier Gibson Okafor-4th S.Johnson-9th
bulls get Stevenson
Knicks get Cousins
Belinelli A.Anderson 4yr 16 mil Gasol 4yr 80mil
23 May 2015 09:43:11
What a terrible Pacers trade
23 May 2015 13:27:38
That's quite a lethal Knicks backcourt.
26 May 2015 05:13:22
knicks fans are crazy. Almost as unrealistic as Laker fans
22 May 2015 15:22:00
2 knicks trade move
Clippers get Melo (Hibbert for Crawford Hawes)
Rockets get Jordan 5yr-
Knicks get Howard
Clippers get a cheaper anchor who hits free throws and CP3 Griffin and Melo become the next big 3 that wins
Harden does not need Howard scoring, he could use Jordan who is more dominating defensively than Howard.
Howard will get 25 SPG in the triangle, he can dominate next to great passing big like Marc if he played at PF. It might be time bring Ewing back to improve Howard's post game.
Mavs get Calderon Andersen Turner-10
Heat get Hardaway Larkins Upshaw-21 D.Johnson-52
Knicks get McRoberts Chalmers Napier
Mavs make this move if Chandler and Rondo go to
Lakers. Turner could develop better all around player than Okafor and maybe Towns.
Heat cut payroll to make cap space to resign Whiteside
and Dragic. Hardaway is wade replacement when retires. Both Larkin and Hardaway are linked to Miami area.
Knicks get Better PGs and reserve big better than Bargnani.
Knicks sign Marc Gasol 4yr 80mil, D. & G. Green 4yr 36mil
Triangle type offense
22 May 2015 15:34:12
Phil Jackson wants nothing to do with Dwight Howard.
22 May 2015 16:06:12
M Gasol will get max, which is 35% of salary cap (4 yr $94M)
22 May 2015 16:19:37
Marc Gasol is not a 10-year veteran. His max contract (4-year, 81.1M) will be 30% of salary cap.
22 May 2015 16:58:12
My fault, I just looked at his career timeline, not when he was drafted in the NBA.
22 May 2015 17:47:48
Jackson had nothing to do with Howard's time in la. Howard only went to la bc he thought jackson was also going. Howard and jackson are good for eachother in triangle. Jackson might consider coaching this roster.
22 May 2015 19:28:50
Actually Howard went to LA because he thought that playing with kobe and nash that they were going to win multiple championships which didn't happen
22 May 2015 02:10:57
heard a couple reports that Brooks Lopez wants to reunite with Jason Kidd with the Bucks. Lopez can opt in for &17 mill with the Nets, so I assume it will take similar $$ to get him to come to the Bucks. That may put the Bucks in a tough position to match offers for Khris Middleton. I'm not big on the idea of signing FA's(especially since at the moment it is a tough sell for any bigtime FA to come to philly), but Middleton may be worth it. He's a 6'8" shooting guard, shot 47% from the field, 41% from 3's, and 85% from the line. he's a freak athlete, and he's only 23 years young. Would be a great fit with Russell or Wroten in the backcourt. Offer him $13-15 mill per.
Plus own #1, Lakers#1, Heat #1, OKC #1, and Dario Saric coming over next year.(that's 5 number one talents Hinkie can draft or package next year for higher picks or players).
Still building 90% of the team through the draft. Middleton just looks like an excellent young fit that with a little luck may be obtainable.
22 May 2015 13:49:12
I think the Bucks can do both Lopez and Middleton as long as they take Lopez first then sign Middleton under the Bird rule, allowing them to go over the cap. I"m not certain of this.
22 May 2015 14:39:10
You are correct.
22 May 2015 15:00:47
I like the idea of this move but I don't think Middleton is worth it at this time. 13 to 15 million and you don't even know if embiid or third pick can play yet. I think you have to wait unless it's a can't miss player in free agency.
23 May 2015 13:41:46
tregib. I think "cant miss players" very rarely sign with a rebuilding franchise. To get out of perennial "rebuild mode" you have to take an occasional chance in free agency but still build mostly through the draft I think Middleton fills need at SG, is 23, shoots great, very athletic, and already is a good player, with the potential to be even better. Maybe worth overpaying a bit, especially with the new cap right around the corner? I think its a gamble, but a calculated gamble with some, but little risk, not a "Bynum".
23 May 2015 13:44:54
Tre- you make a good point. Plus, picking up a big money guy is sure to get in the way of the development of some of the young guys.
Maybe wait on that free agent and use cap spsce to pick up one more salary dump and 1st rounder.
But you can't wait too long. Some of these high picks are going to chew into the cap when their contracts come up.
24 May 2015 05:27:03
Sixers can't pay for a below superstar level free agent right now. We can't clog up cap space for the future on a guy who may not even be in the starting five once we get good.
unless hinkie thinks he's a superstar who not being used correctly like the James harden deal it's pointless to sign a Lesser tire player to a max contract. In the long run that's just bad thinking. It's how the old Sixers thoughT and that will get you to the playoffs but nothing more.
They should make offers to the big free agents and pass on anything else until next year when you know more about the players you currently have.
24 May 2015 17:36:39
I respect your opinion and insight on the sixers. I think now is the prime time to get a guy like Middleton. He just turned 23, has a huge upside, is on the verge of stardom, and could be the kind of guy that sends a message to the bigtime free agents that philly is on the rise! I think the "old sixer way" would be signing a vet already in his prime to a max deal, then not having the players or financial flexibility to get past the first round of the playoffs. This signing is much different. i'm all for building through the draft, but I got to believe hinkie knows you have to use all avenues to the best of your ability in a financially smart way. I think Middleton will bring way more positives to the sixers future then negatives.
21 May 2015 06:53:38
Pacers trade hibbert hill and 11th pick to heat, stuckey and Copeland to New Orleans
Heat sign and trade Dwayne Wayne to pacers along with whiteside, trade deng to Pelicans
Pelicans trade eric Gordon and Asik to heat, Ryan Anderson to pacers.
21 May 2015 15:11:22
Stuckey Deng and Copeland for Asik Gordon and Anderson? Pelicans say no way
21 May 2015 04:23:30
Rondo said he will never be a Heat but
NY get st Goran Dragic, Luol Deng and 10th pick
-draft Willey Cauley-Stein and Kelly Oubre
MIA get Carmelo Anthony
MIA sign Rajon Rondo
21 May 2015 03:43:52
76ers / Nuggets
76er trade Heat #1 and OKC#1 next year and Dario Saric to Denver for this years #7. 76ers draft Russell at #3 and Hezonja at #7. Still have own #1 and Lakers #1 next year. Have backcourt of the future with size(6'5" and 6'8") and shooting ability.
Denver gets two #1 picks next year AND stud Euro in Saric(Saric, 6'10" and only 20 years old went #10 last year, and was projected top 7 if he didn't commit to play guaranteed two years in Europe)
I hate giving up Saric, but I think Hezonja is worth it.
21 May 2015 13:17:10
You won't get the 7 for two late first round future picks and an overrated guy who won't play in America and who's game doesn't translate to American style basketball. Otherwise, great as always. You talk about the best prospects ever, and then instantly give up whe. A new potential one is around. Classic sixers fan adhd. Good job with that consistency in your posts lol
21 May 2015 13:21:02
It's a decent idea, but ultimately, IMO, it's too much for Hezonja. I would give those 2 picks and Wroten - would the Nuggets go for that?
21 May 2015 15:55:11
You're going to have a hard time using the Sixers future picks to move into a decent spot in this year's draft. The teams in the desirable landing spots only have one pick this year so you're asking them to move completely out of this draft and get nothing in return but a future promise.
There are teams with more than one pick this year with the best target being Boston at #16. Do you really want to use two picks next year for the #16 this year? Then have to use another pick or two from there to get into the top 10?
The Sixers are probably better off waiting until next year then trying to get 2 top 10 players in that draft.
21 May 2015 16:23:54
I think it's a pretty fair deal. Sixers start there rebuild a little quicker. Denver get to have a few extra pick next season and get a young prospect in saric as well. Problems is teams rarely trade current picks for future picks and that's all. They usually want a pick this year or a player to help ease the wait. I don't think I'm giving up wroten or Covington in this deal so that's the problem I see.
21 May 2015 23:24:28
Don't remember ever calling saric the best prospect ever, and i'm not giving up on him. I think you have to give value to get value, especially value at a position of need. I feel trading saric is a big sacrifice, and I wouldn't mind keeping him at all. Just throwing out possible ideas to get Hezonja in the backcourt of the future with Russell. No adhd. and that would be ADD(attention defecit disorder), not ADHD(attention defecit hyperactivity disorder). Big difference. Hope that didn't hurt your feelings again.
20 May 2015 18:59:24
I believe the sixers and Knicks will make some sort of trade on draft night
Sixers trade Lakers, Heat, Thunder picks next year
Knicks trade #4 Hardaway and Calderon
20 May 2015 20:20:05
Good idea. But I think they use less assets and target Denver. WCS will be picked in that range so that leaves Hezonja or Winslow at the 7 spot.
21 May 2015 05:15:55
Take the heat pick out and instead throw a 2nd round pick or two in

Knicks are getting screwed in that deal. It doesn't accomplish anything they want to do
They're not getting a great player back. They are getting picks in the future but give up a high pick this year and thj who was a higher pick before. Just doesn't make sense for either direction. That being said. Sixers would probably do it in a second.
