SG Gordon Heyward to MAX Contract
G Jordie Meeks 3 years $21 million
LAL- Paul George
IND- Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle & 2017 2nd overall pick.
George has expressed interest in playing for LA. The Pacers know he will probably leave for nothing after 17 if they are not competitive. Why not get two young solid role players and a top pick.
LAL- Hashan Whiteside
MIA- D'Angalo Russell, Timofey Mosgov, & 2019 1st (unprotected)
The Heat have the ability to start their rebuild around Russell and Winslow. They also can use Mosgov to fill the C void.
LAL- Elfrid Peyton
ORL- Nick Young
The Magic need shooters, and the Lakers need a distributing PG.
PG- Elfrid Peyton/Marcelo Huertas
SG- Gordon Heyward/Jordie Meeks
SF- Brandon Ingram/Corey Brewer
PF- Paul George/Larry Nance
C- Hashan Whiteside/Tarik Black
The new front office will want to make a big splash and start the winning process. They're not going to wait for Russell and top picks to develop. They will try to use their assets and bring in some big names.
23 Feb 2017 16:18:22
Heyward isn't going to Lakers. He's looking for a good team!
23 Feb 2017 16:35:25
If we trade PG13, we want Ingram and the pick (or russel if it falls out the top three.
And i think Bird rather trades him to Boston for the protected Clippers pick, than trade him to LA.
23 Feb 2017 17:03:11
No one wants nick young if Hezonja can't make the rotation how will Young no thanks. Anyways reports are lakers want a 2nd for young which means they know his value and going to sell low.
23 Feb 2017 17:09:27
Can't trade 3 first round picks in a row.
23 Feb 2017 12:53:39
Miami Heat / Philadelphia 76ers
Miami Heat: Sérgio Rodriguez;Jahlil Okafor.
Philadelphia 76ers:Tyler Johnson, Josh McRoberts, first round protected(1-14)2020.
23 Feb 2017 17:14:40
Tyler Johnson is an awful contract. No way 76ers are taking him.
23 Feb 2017 00:12:45
heat : okafor, luwawu-cabarrot
76ers : babbitt, mcroberts
23 Feb 2017 03:14:52
Value of Okafor is not high but obviously not this low. lmao.
23 Feb 2017 04:34:21
they just traded ilyasova who has been playing very good for splitter whos been hurt all seasom.
23 Feb 2017 06:17:53
To give Super Dario more minutes.
23 Feb 2017 06:29:00
They made that trade because it gives Saric more opportunity for minutes and they got two second round picks.
23 Feb 2017 00:06:00
heat : frazier, jones, pondexter(waive)
pelicans : ellington, mcroberts
22 Feb 2017 18:07:49
heat : jackson, morris, kcp
pistons : dragic, mcroberts, richardson
21 Feb 2017 15:53:43
Miami: J noah+ o'Quin+ rondo+ Mirotic+ 1rnd pick NY 17 and 19
NY: H Whiteside+ D Wade
Chicago: G Dragic+ C Lee+ L thomas
Miami go's in rebuilt mode
NY can sign CP3 in free agency
SF: C Anthony
SG: D Wade
Chicago builts a team around Butler.
21 Feb 2017 16:23:02
This seems like terrible value for dragic and Whiteside. They take one of the worst contracts in the NBA, and get two picks that would end up being late firsts.
21 Feb 2017 01:16:09
Lakers get Hassan Whiteside & Josh McRoberts
Heat get Lou Will, Julius Randle, Luol Deng
21 Feb 2017 01:57:29
It'll take more than that to get Whiteside from Heat especially after their hot streak where they likely aren't actively shopping him.
20 Feb 2017 22:59:25
Miami gets- Johnson-Zeller-Bradley-1 bkln pick
Boston gets- Whiteside.
20 Feb 2017 16:31:08
heat : mudiay, jones, chandler
nuggets : holiday, ajinca, pondexter
pelicans : dragic, mcroberts. harris
20 Feb 2017 19:23:34
Can't imagine Nuggets giving up Mudiay, Chandler AND Harris for Holiday who is going into unrestricted FA and Ajinca and Pondexter. Even if Holiday was signed for next 3 years I'm not sure Nuggets would do that trade.
20 Feb 2017 20:45:45
chandler is going to leave regardless and murray needs to step up w nelson as his mentor
the only real loss is gary harris.
20 Feb 2017 16:22:04
This trade could be broken down into 2 trades but to save space.
Boston, Detroit, Miami, Chicago
Boston trades Brown, Crowder, Amir, Zeller
Rosier, olinyk, '17, '18 nets picks, mem 1st,
Receive whiteside, Butler, m.Morris
Chicago trade Butler,
Receive Brown, Olynyk, '17 nets pick
Detroit trade Morris, Boban, Ish, '17 first
Receive Dragic, Crowder
Miami trade Dragic, Whiteside
Receive '18 nets, '17 det 1st, orl 2nd,
mem 1st, Rozier, Zeller, Amir, ish, Boban
20 Feb 2017 16:46:56
If the Kings ran both of those teams it would work.
20 Feb 2017 18:54:57
If Miami and Chicago blow it up. I think this is a solid return.
16 Feb 2017 13:00:40
Phoenix get Okafor (PHI)
Atlanta get Tucker (PHO)
Philadelphia get Splitter (ATL, he's injured so philly can shut him down for the season and let his contract expire while getting closer to the salary floor), 2018 MIA 1st (PHO), and 2017 2nds from MIA and BKN (owned by ATL)
16 Feb 2017 13:58:42
2018 Miami pick is a bit of a wildcard since they could be sellers or buyers between then and significantly change their fortune. I think Phoenix would be smart to put minimally a top 5 protection on it especially since 76ers are getting two early 2nd rounders anyway. Otherwise I like it for Phx. ATL is paying a bit of a premium for Tucker imo since both BKN and Miami's 2nds should be early in the second making them practically more valuable than a late first due to the non-guarantee status. They should probably only be giving up 1 and change the other to their own 2018 2nd.
For Sixers I think its a solid return on Okafor. The situation is getting a bit out of control and I think they need to deal him and for what he has been rumored to go for I think this isn't a bad deal. Although the 2018 draft is big man heavy they can hopefully find one that better fits their roster. The early 2nd rounder in this years draft could also help them add bench depth on the wing cheaply.
16 Feb 2017 14:10:27
The reason why I chose the 2018 Miami 1st was b/ c it was already top 7 protected and the Suns 1st this year is too valuable.
16 Feb 2017 14:17:16
It's a good trade on paper, but Phoenix already has a lot of bugs. Chandler, Len, Chriss, and bender. That would just logjam them like the sixers are now.
16 Feb 2017 17:08:00
I's a a logg jam, but they should let Len walk and Chandler is aging.
Okafor-Bender-Chriss can become good.
16 Feb 2017 17:23:07
Suns say no. they're not giving up a first rounder for a guy who only averages 11 points in a league that plays no def. By trading okafor, rather than noel they risk losing both since noel is a free agent, yet they still keep pushing okafor on the trade market. what's that tell you?
15 Feb 2017 16:15:53
(Trade Machine approved Money)
Philly trades- Okafor, Luwawu-Cabarret, Worse of own and Sactown 2019 1st, 2019 NY 2nd.
Philly gets: 2018 Brooklyn 1st, 2020 Miami 2nd, Zeller (BOS) Rozier (BOS)
Boston trades- Johnson, Young, Zeller, Rozier, 2018 Brooklyn 1st, 2019 Clippers 1st, 2019 Detroit 2nd, 2020 Miami 2nd.
Boston gets: Drummond (det), Luwawu-Cabbarret (phi)
Detroit trades: Drummond
Detroit gets: Okafor (phi), Johnson (bos) Young (bos) 2019 Clippers 1st, 2019 Detroit 2nd.
Philly: Gets a 2018 Brooklyn pick and Rozier for Okafor and worse of a 2019 1st. They also get an expiring deal.
Boston: Gets Drummond without giving up major assets other than 2018 brooklyn pick.
Detroit: Gets a good young center, picks, and expiring deals.
15 Feb 2017 16:20:41
Closer value-wise but DET passes on this.
15 Feb 2017 17:05:05
Detroit Says no unless they get Brkln pick and Philly gets LAC pick. But good foundation just need a little tweaking.
Philly hasn't done crap with all the picks they've had over the last 3 years so they don't deserve the Brkln pick.
15 Feb 2017 17:27:56
Boston will not be trading either of the Brooklyn picks unless they get a top-10 player in return. That's not Drummond.
15 Feb 2017 17:48:58
Agree that the bkn pick should be going to Detroit. A first and rozier is enough for okafor.
15 Feb 2017 18:38:28
Suppercollider, You must not like Drummond.
SB*Nation has him listed as the 3rd best in the NBA.
15 Feb 2017 18:51:51
Drummond is an all star level center locked in long term. 2017 nets pick starts any conversation, anything less isn't a serious offer.
15 Feb 2017 19:13:59
The Celtics wouldn't do Rozier and a non Nets 1st for Ibaka, so I don't see them making this trade for Drummond. Ibaka fits their system better than Drummond does, and while he's really good at some things, he's got his warts as well. He's far from a perfect player, and I'd honestly say he's probably not a top 5 center at this point. The fact that SVG, a guy whose system relies on a strong center, is shopping him does not bode well for him.
15 Feb 2017 19:30:34
They already have an ibaka type in horford, both being more (power) forward types that like to stand 15 away from the basket.
Not bringing in the fact that drummond is the much more valuable player, ibaka only had a year left on his contract, so of course they wouldn't give up a bkn pick for him.
15 Feb 2017 21:45:27
The offensive end isn't where the Celtics are having problems. They need help defensively and on the boards. Ibaka would have done what Amir Johnson does, but better, offensively, but would have upgraded in those key areas. Drummond can rebound, sure, but would have thrown a kink into the offensive gears. He's not a good assist guy, and he's nota great defender. He also doesn't really have range, which both the others do. If they're going to make a move for a center with no range, I'd rather a guy like Bogut.
16 Feb 2017 03:58:24
Go for bogut then and stay in mediocrity. if that's the type of move Boston is looking to do then they might as well just do nothing and keep building.
I think at this point it should be trade for a star or nothing. The point is to try to win a championship right?
16 Feb 2017 16:24:47
Drummond just isn't a team changing type guy. He's a really good rebounder, but that's it. Moving that much, especially a Nets pick, for him would do exactly what you're saying. send them to mediocrity. Bogut is also a really good rebounder, but also plays solid defense. More importantly, he'll be MUCH cheaper in a trade, and will not tie up their future cap flexibility.
15 Feb 2017 15:20:41
Heat : chandler, mudiay
Nuggets : dragic, mcroberts (waive), richardson
Heat sign gallinari in offseason and release babbitt
Draft giles or miles bridges
Mudiay/ t johnson
Waiters / ellington/ bridges
Winslow/ chandler/ mcgruder
Gallinari/ j johnson /white/ haslem
Whiteside/ reed/ giles
15 Feb 2017 18:08:41
Why wouldn't this work?
14 Feb 2017 00:47:48
Heat get Wall, gortat, pick
Wizards get Whiteside, dragic, johnson
Heat can go after Cousins with his college teammate
Wizard get a defensive anchor at center they can pair with Beal n a vet pg
14 Feb 2017 02:48:39
I don't think Wizards would accept this. If they really wanted they could go after Boogie themselves. The Wizards have miraculously came from the worst team in the league the first few months of season to one of the hottest and top 3 in the east. I don't think they get rid of their best player for that offer let alone Gortat (who has played solidly) and their first rounder as well.
12 Feb 2017 21:59:25
OKC Thunder moves
1. Trade Andre Roberson, Kyle Singler to Phoenix for PJ Tucker, Miami 2018 1st (1-7 protected)
2. Trade Joffrey Lauvergne, Anthony Morrow, Miami 2018 1st to Orlando for Serge Ibaka, CJ Wilcox
3. Call up Daniel Hamilton
Pg Westbrook, Payne, Christon
Sg Oladipo, Abrines, Wilcox
Sf Tucker, Grant, Hamilton
Pf Ibaka, Sabonis, Huestis
C Adams, Kanter, Collison.
13 Feb 2017 03:45:43
Or they could go after Taj Gibson instead of Ibaka.
12 Feb 2017 19:21:39
heat : gallinari, mudiay
nuggets :dragic, mcroberts, richardson
heat get pg for future and stretch 4 they need
nuggets get pg for playoff push
12 Feb 2017 05:05:45
Thunder get Nick Young and Josh McRoberts
Lakers get Andre Roberson and Rodney McGruder
Heat get Tarik Black and Kyle Singler.
12 Feb 2017 06:34:53
OKC gets a 3&d wing and a veteran
Lakers get a young perimeter defender
Heat get a backup center upgrade to make playoff push.
12 Feb 2017 03:50:21
Sixers held Okafor out of the Heat game tonight because, according to reports, a trade is imminent. Where do you think he'll go? I say New Orleans, for Ajinca and a 1st round pick, lightly protected (1-5) in 2018, then unprotected in 2019. But maybe Chicago? LA? Or...
12 Feb 2017 04:19:29
I'd like to see him and Stauskas to Portland for Crabbe.
12 Feb 2017 04:29:27
Okafor for Clarkson straight up.
12 Feb 2017 04:34:23
No to Crabbe he makes 18 million, hasn't been good on D and has been a slightly above average shooter at best.
12 Feb 2017 05:02:25
Crabbe is an average defender, and 43% from 3 is a good shooter. He's also 24 years old and doesn't get injured often.
12 Feb 2017 05:08:00
43% from 3 (7th in the NBA) is slightly above average shooting?
I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but of any team in the NBA, Phili can easily afford to take on a poor contrast, especially to get an elite shooter (which they desperately need) .
12 Feb 2017 13:55:11
I don't think it's a matter of if Philly can absorb the contract, I think it is that they are trying to only shell out top money for "elite" players.
11 Feb 2017 17:54:58
heat : chandler, mudiay
nuggets : dragic, mcroberts, richardson
11 Feb 2017 19:35:40
The trade would definitely benefit the Nuggets but then it's up to the ping pong balls for the Heat. Guess it's Riley's decision on how he wants to plan the future.
11 Feb 2017 23:27:26
Love it for the heat, mudiay is not getting the min he deserves with the nuggets n he has a lot of potential.
11 Feb 2017 17:30:02
Miami: C Anthony
NY: Gallinari+C Bosh+Winslow
Denver: J Noah+ 1rnd pick NY 17+ swap option NY in 18
Miami receive a star
NY can release Bosh and receive a great young wingplayer
Denver can take Noah's big contract and get an extra asset for a young player. They can use that pick and their own pick to move up in the draft.
11 Feb 2017 18:30:30
Denver says no Joakim Noah has probably the worst contract in the league.
11 Feb 2017 19:21:51
Denver can take that bad contract
Nurkic, Jokic, Murray; Mundiay, Barton, . are still on rookie deals for a few years. And that NY pick is going to be a lottery pick, so thet can ad another good asset.
11 Feb 2017 22:01:18
It's not probable. Noah does have the worst contract in the NBA
Crowder has the best.
Boston has 3 out of the top 4 best contracts.
