Heat are still working to get under the Luxury Tax. They need to dump $7m more.

However, the Heat also are in severe draft pick debt.

Sixers get Chalmers, $4m in cash and 2018 2nd rounder
Heat get Cole Hamels, I mean a highly protected 2nd rounder.

Come on Hinkie, get me a professional, experienced PG. I"m tired of D-League slop.

29 Jul 2015 16:21:53
I wonder how long it will take for people to realize.

29 Jul 2015 17:23:02
Thought you didn't want more second rounders philly? Also maybe hinkie should be Phillies gm. They could use some more rebuilding

29 Jul 2015 17:50:23
I don't want any more 2nd rounders. But that's about the going rate for this kind of salary dump and I do want Chalmers. And I think that's what the Heat gave up in their two previous salary dumps so I know its reasonable.

Plus, the Heat don't really have anything else to offer unless they want to talk about Justise Winslow (which they don't). So I'll take their 2nd rounder to get a real NBA PG and go on my way.

29 Jul 2015 17:51:46
Realize what, Tre? That the Sixers don't have a professional PG or that the Heat have no draft picks or that the Heat are in the middle of Luxury Tax hell?

29 Jul 2015 18:09:24
The cole hamels part made me laugh that's all. I see where your going and This would seem like a hinkie type of deal to me but I doubt at this point hear need to dump salary. The rosters are pretty much set.

I also wanna give wroten another season. This time as a starter. The kid can put up incredible numbers. The injury concerns me for sure but he did put up 20 a game before mcw came back. It's worth a look then to just stick a random vetern

29 Jul 2015 20:53:13
Miami is still trying to carve off $7m. They made two trades this week to move contracts and get back very highly protected 2nd rounders.

Wroten is best suited as a 6th man. We need a competent guard to put Wroten on the bench.

29 Jul 2015 21:15:40
Im sorry, wroten does not put up incredible numbers. he shoots 40% from the field, 25% from 3 and turns it over about 4 times a game. Additionally, the 20 a game before mcw came back. that's 7 games man. 7. linsanity was at least 10 and he's awful. Wroten is not the answer for the sixers. Not sure who is, but wroten is at best a energy burst role player. He is just not sound enough to be a starter, let alone a star as you believe he will be.

28 Jul 2015 18:35:30

BUCKS get : J. McRoberts

HEAT get : 2nd round pick & M. Plumlee

BUCKS get a veteran back up PF

M. Carter-Williams / G. Vasquez / T. Ennis
K. Middleton / O. Mayo / J. Bayless
G. Antetokounmpo / R. Vaughn
J. Parker / J. McRoberts / J. O'Bryant
G. Monroe / J. Henson

HEAT get a young back up center

G. Dragic / M. Chalmers
D. Wade / J. Winslow / J. Ennis
L. Deng / G. Green
C. Bosh / A. Stoudemire / U. Haslem
H. Whiteside / M. Plumlee / C. Andersen

29 Jul 2015 18:29:45
J mcroberts is injured prone with a bad contract. The bucks have c Copeland as their back up stretch 4

28 Jul 2015 06:36:15
Mavs get Calderon
Heat get knicks and mavs exception Galloway and Ledo non guarenteed contract (7.4 mil in saving)
Knicks get Chalmers McRoberts Felton

Heat avoid luxury tax. Have exceptions for any players they need from a team looking dump salary later at deadline. Bring cole back cheap.


Mavs no bringer with guy they had success with for Felton. No player would be better than Calderon for exception at cost of loosing exception bc your moving Felton. Parsons for Splitter Sefolosha


Knicks need starting stretch 4 PF that sense next melo
and Lopez in post without loosing defense and rebounder in post. McRoberts is good transition to Porzingis. Chalmers better opt than Calderon defensively. Felton best yrs was in ny. Early and Thanasis for Bayless


28 Jul 2015 04:03:22

Heat got a protected 2nd rd pick

Magic got Napier

Imo Magic get a huge steal and are on the rise

Sign Javale McGee


28 Jul 2015 08:31:55
Not sure McGee has the IQ or personality to fit with the Magic roster and system. I can imagine Skiles reactions being shown on Shaqtin the fool lol.

28 Jul 2015 15:12:29
Magic again will be in the lottery. As they never seem to get an elite player. They always get very good at best players.

27 Jul 2015 02:42:53

Mia- protected Philly 2nd
-cap dump

Dal gets Birdman
-front court help

Phi- Mia 2nd + Felton
- take on bad contract

27 Jul 2015 07:38:04
Sixers are done with second rounders.

27 Jul 2015 12:48:58
Are the Mav's in such a bad cap situation that they have to move Felton? His contract doesn't look that bad to me- $4m?

I guess the Sixers would do this if they wanted a vet PG for a year. But I don't think Felton's their guy.

26 Jul 2015 18:35:41
Trade just went down
Magic trade 2nd round protected pick
Heat trade Napier
Magic get an absolute steal with this trade IMO

26 Jul 2015 19:51:21
With Payton, Watson, Olidipo, Hezonja, And Founier already in the backcourt, the trade for Napier may be the beginning to something bigger.

26 Jul 2015 23:19:27
Payton henzonja dipo Gordon Harris and vucevic Napier Nichelson will a good team in 1-3 years with vets being added

27 Jul 2015 02:06:54
Henzonja, and fournier can both play the three.

27 Jul 2015 03:12:36
The Magic have the backcourt depth to make a big trade for a PF. Maybe a trade with Philadelphia whom has a plethora of big men and need backcourt help. Also, Philadelphia will be tanking again this year to try to get Ben Simmons who is another PF. And if Philly doesn't end up with the #1 overall pick, they already have 4 1st rounders to trade up with. Maybe getting the Magic's 1st rounder next year will help with that.

27 Jul 2015 03:46:07
I can't see the Magic trading Payton, Oaldipo, Hezonjia, or Napier. They could package Watson, Fournier, Nicholson, and a 1st for a PF, maybe someone like Noel.

27 Jul 2015 12:55:19
I don't think the Sixers are tanking again. They could win 30. They added a professional center in Okafor, moved Noel to PF where I think he's best suited, added two professional big men from the Kings trade, and now (probably/maybe/hopefully) have a real shooting guard in Stauskas. That's 4 more real players than last year. That's a pretty big deal in the NBA.

They'll get about a 5-8 pick in the draft. And with Embiid a question mark, there's no "plethora of big men." He can't be counted on for at least 2 years. If he takes this year to recover, he'll need a full year after that to prove he's healthy and reliable.

But I agree there is something going on in the Orlando back court.

25 Jul 2015 21:56:57

- trade S.Karasev, E.Clark (waived), W.Reed (waived) and 2016 2nd round pick for M.Barnes
- complete the 3-team trade:
Nets get M.Chalmers
Heat get D.Marble (waived)
Magic get B.Bogdanovic
- sign E.Udoh (1-year, min.)

Chalmers - Jack - Larkin
Johnson - Ellington - Brown
Barnes - RHJ - Miller
Young - Robinson - McCullough
Lopez - Bargnani - Udoh


26 Jul 2015 05:10:42
Bogdanovic>Chalmers, and they should just keep Reed, he's better than udoh.

25 Jul 2015 15:11:11
76ers / Knicks

Sixers need a point guard. Knicks are drained of draft picks. Nothing worse then being poor or mediocre at best and having zero #1 picks.

Sixers get: Jerrian Grant
Knicks get: less valuable of OKC 2016 or Miami 2016 #1 and Denver's 2016 second round pick.

Why it works: Knicks are completely out of next year's draft. This trade gives them a #1(in the #25 range) and a #2(in the #33 range) next year.

Grant and Sixers seem to be an ideal fit. Big pg with a decent outside shot.

25 Jul 2015 15:44:03
Knicks traded for grant and was the number 19 pick so why would they trade him. He eventually will replace Calderon in the lineup This year

25 Jul 2015 17:11:14
I like Grant, I think he'll be a pretty good PG in this league. I don't think he's a good fit in NY.

That being said, just because your team likes all the draft picks they can get doesn't mean other teams will throw away good young players for a late 1st rd pick.

25 Jul 2015 17:44:34
Try the bucks and Heat they have 4 pgs, knicks need grant. But take Calderon, knicks will give him for 2nd and take on Aldemir Thompson players not part of the rotation. Only cost sixers an extra 3 mil in 2016 & 17. Bc than Knicks will contact for Bayless and Chalmers.

25 Jul 2015 18:02:00
Sixers do that. I'm not sure the Knicks do. They like Grant. Sixers should have tried to acquire on draft day. They missed out.

25 Jul 2015 20:04:14
Newlakerdynasty. I was comparing this deal with the Cavs/wolves deal. Wolves have #31 and #34 for #24(tyus Jones). I thought the Sixers picks offered are around #25 and #33 for Grant( #19), better picks for a slightly higher pick. Thought I was in the ballpark comparing to current trade values. Plus, it gi es Knicks some flexibility in next year's draft, which they are currently shut out of. And I love the way you already have Grant as a " good young player" when he hasn't played a minute yet. He's still a gamble, just like draft picks. This trade isn't that off. But keep bashing anything that could possibly benefit the Sixers. Can't wait to use YOUR pick in the draft.

25 Jul 2015 20:44:05
I'd pass on that's trade. Seems to me guys like grant comes around all the time. So I don't need him.

25 Jul 2015 22:48:22
Wolves didn't have thirty four they had around pick thirty eight. Knicks made up for next years draft with trading for willy herm and trading hardaway for grant. There's still a draft lottery so can't keep out any team nit getting there pick back

25 Jul 2015 22:59:39
You can use your picks buy you guys giving every player four year deals you will end up cutting the ones that will turn out to be good. Also we'll see if he players you draft want to actually play for you if you read some reports agents and players didn't want to go to the sixers. Just keep finding players with picks attatched to salary dumps like Landry and Thompson because you actually have to spend your money next year.

26 Jul 2015 03:12:47
THEKING. you are making my point for me. Actually Minn traded pix 31 and 36 for pick 24(Tyus Jones). That's actually LESS value then what I originally incorrectly posted with pix 34 and 31 for pick 24. My point was, and still is, trade value is in the ballpark for the trade I proposed.

26 Jul 2015 07:44:32
Grant might end up being a steal at #19, he might not sign another contract after this one. My point is the Knicks have to give him a shot to see how it ends up. Why would they trade up to get that pick just to trade him before he ever plays for 2 later picks? They keep kicking the can down the road and never actually get to see if these picks develop into players or not. I'm bashing the 76ers because all they're doing is flipping assets for more picks. They just keep spinning their wheels doing that. They may get the best prospect year after year, but if they keep trading players and picks for more picks, any good young player they pick will more than likely go someplace else to compete when they become a free agent. Now they can't get any free agents to sign there because of their reputation. Never going to compete for anything with a team full of rookies and guys under 24.

26 Jul 2015 07:49:25
MY pick in next year's draft will end up on another team 4 years down the road and will have to be taught to be a winner after being held captive in that losing culture in PHI. I can't wait till your GM picks 2 more centers in the draft.

26 Jul 2015 13:10:55
Newlakerdynasty. other then MCW and KJ McDaniel, what other good young players have the Sixers drafted and flipped for more assets and picks?? Hinkie cleaned house, and is trying to build a foundation that can be competitive after taking over an organization in shambles thanks to the Doug Collins regime. Fa's wouldn't come to philly before hinkie, the draft is the only way to start the rebuilding. And MCW wasn't a good fit here, so kj is the only questionable move I can see. Now it's time to overspend a bit and hopefully get a fa to come here next year. Have okafor and Noel gel as a front court. Hopefully saric comes over next year. Develop stauskas into the player he can be. It's a process, and the Embiid gble sure slowed us down, but we will see progress next year.

26 Jul 2015 15:57:27
Twelves also trade future seconds or maybe 2. The problem is they if you overpay for a free agent they might not come anyway. Just look at the Kings this year. Offered Andrea bargani Tobias Harris and Wes Matthews more money and they still didn't sign. In the near future with all else four year deals your giving people like Scottie wilbiken your going to end having to cut people and might end up cutting or trading the wrong one.

26 Jul 2015 16:45:56
wilbekin is a third string pg at best, these guys come and go on every team. And only the first year of his 4 year contract is "partially" guaranteed. This guy will be lucky to be around in 4 months, forget about 4 years. Starting 5 will be: C:Okafor, PF:Noel, SF:Covington, SG:Stauskas, PG:Wroten. Bench: SF:Grant, C:JThompson, SG:HThompson, PG:Ish(they will re-sign him), PF:Landry. Deep bench: PG:PJackson, PF:Aldemir. SF:RHolmes, G/F:JSampson, G:Wilbekin(or McConnel, or Canaan, or anybody else for that matter).

26 Jul 2015 18:18:11
Since you guys value your players very highly having four first round picks and future picks will make you get rid of players. It might be hard to let them go won't it? You guys can get the world for them right? Nope. You can't get the world and then some for people like Covington and Noel. Deal with it

26 Jul 2015 19:11:15
Let me think??? Get rid of Canaan, Sampson, wilbekin, Thompson(either one), Landry, aldemir, ish, McConnell, pjackson. Yeah. I think I can deal with it. But thanks for the advice. Appreciate it big time.

26 Jul 2015 23:22:47
Saric coming over? International players you wasted five second round picks on? Still have to spend at least 80 mill of 89 mill cap space next year? Four first rounder? However many second rounders? Embiid coming back? Everyone would want to play.

27 Jul 2015 05:19:11
If they will trade the reigning Rookie of the Year halfway through his 2nd season, nobody's safe.

MCW wasn't a good fit there? After a season and half on one of the worst 3 teams in the league and he wins ROY, who's a better fit for them at PG? Give him time to develop before you toss him away.

Let's assume that pick in the trade produces a top tier PG. How many years is it going to take for him to develop for them? 3-4 years? By that time, he's either gone after 4 years cause PHI sucks, or the other core young guys are gone for the same reasons. Hinkie's "process" is one that secures his job, not produce a competitive team. If his process is a 3-4 year one each year after the draft, his job is safe until the delusional fans figure out they'll never be better than 5th worst in the East.

27 Jul 2015 15:46:56
Then glaring need for hinkie this year was point guard. What do they do with five second round picks and the number three pick? Not draft a point guard and are sending jp tokoto who can be the steal of the draft to overseas. In free agency you do the classic and sign wilbekin and Jackson to four year deals like always despite the NBA did an investigation. You traded for more big men in Landry and Thompson and a shooting guard for extra picks. Hinkie has no clue what he's doing

25 Jul 2015 11:02:37

25 Jul 2015 07:28:56

simple deal

Nets get Mario Chalmers (new starting PG)

Heat get Earl Clark, Markel Brown & future 2nd round pick (depth on the wing)

24 Jul 2015 22:44:39
When fa sign this summer are eligible in December to be traded

Lakers get R. Lopez D-Williams Calderon
Knicks get Hibbert Lou-Will Chalmers McRoberts
Heat get Kelly Galloway Ledo

Lakers get hometown Robin fit their style. Facilitator with exp. And 2nd opt at SF and 2nd post scoring besides Randle.


knicks get hometown Hibbert got their style. PG better than Calderon. Stretch 4 with rebound and defend. Best backup guard in recent yrs.

Knicks sign for exception Carlos Boozer. Sign Willie Green to vet min


Heat are 11 mil over cap. They are at threshold of triple fines luxury taxes 33. They released Ledo and Galloway partial contracts. Save 9 mil in contract and 27 mil luxury taxes.


25 Jul 2015 04:45:47
Why would the Lakers trade Hibbert & Lou Will for contracts of Lopez and DWill? Lopez is okay but I think a little overpayed and Hibbert is better if he come back to his old self also has an expiring contract. And also Calderon?

25 Jul 2015 15:48:35
Lopez didn't want to sign with us so why trade for him. Have fun with Calderons contract. Dwill is a Huge bust. Rather have Hibbert and Lou will.

24 Jul 2015 08:07:21
Jazz get- George Hill
Jazz trade- 1st round pick, Trey Burke, and Trevor Booker

Derrick Favors - Trey Lyles - Grant Jerrett
Rudy Gobert - Tibor Theiss

Bulls get- Jazz 1st round pick, Pacers 1st round pick, Trevor Booker, Chase Budinger, CJ Miles, and Ian Mahinmi
Bulls trade- Etwaun Moore, Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson

-- Bulls move Pau to center allowing Mirotic who has shown the capability of starting. The east lacks dominate bigs and this lineup matches up well with teams like the Cavs and Heat. They get 2 1st round picks and expiring contracts for 2 players rumored to be gone by next season. They get great depth and save money next season.

Derrick Rose - Aaron Brooks - Kirk Hinrich
Jimmy Butler - CJ Miles - Tony Snell

Trey Burke - Joe Young - Etwaun Moore
Monte Ellis - Rodney Stuckey
Paul George - Solomon Hill
Taj Gibson - Myles Turner - Rakeem Christmas

why would the heat do this?

23 Jul 2015 19:37:08
^ they want to shed contracts. they get rid of anderson and mcroberts contracts and get Early (rookie contract) & Galloway (min contract) in return

24 Jul 2015 02:02:42
Include Ledo and exception to miami get Chalmers and sign cole and boozer for min develop Porzingis and grant.

23 Jul 2015 03:59:57
76ers trade 2017 first round pick (top 20 protected) if not conveyed by 2017 pick becomes a second in 2018 and 2019
Heat trade Anderson Napier
Would like to see Napier start for a team and maybe by 2018 76ers become decent so 2nd round picks aren't that bad
Heat save money and pick up a future pick(s)

23 Jul 2015 15:16:19
Sixers pass big time.

23 Jul 2015 16:20:25
Why do they pass but time? The pick is top 20 protected and becomes two second round picks for a point guard which you need and a center who can play 10-15 minutes

23 Jul 2015 03:57:23
Lakers trade nick young sacre future second
Cavs trade Haywood
Lakers trade Haywood 2 seconds
Heat trade Napier Anderson

Lakers GM said he'd like to add a pg and a true 5

22 Jul 2015 22:05:47
Sixers get Calderon Napier Early
Knicks get Chalmers Anderson McRoberts
Heat get Galloway Ledo Knicks exception

Heat want move Anderson McRoberts Chalmers. But it will cost them Napier. They will resign Cole with Knicks exception still save 14 mil = 52mil luxury taxes.


Sixers won't take on Calderon without 1st. Napier is that


Knicks get ideal stretch PF next to melo. Finally their size to fit triangle system. Chalmers defense is far better Calderon.

Knicks sign N.Robinson for vet min


22 Jul 2015 22:43:20
Napier is not worth a 1st

22 Jul 2015 23:40:34
Napier is nowhere close to enough to take on Calderon.

22 Jul 2015 23:43:18
Sixers trade nothing and get a young point guard and another point guard which is a position they need and get a young SF?

23 Jul 2015 10:12:32
it is not his fault to forget who the sixers is trading. sixers really don't have multiple players on their roster with value to be traded. real talk.

23 Jul 2015 15:17:48
and Phi trades nothing?

23 Jul 2015 15:23:18
According to sixers fans they have picks Covington Noel embiid grant wroten and more to trade

23 Jul 2015 15:38:48
The Sixers have to trade something back. Its kind of a rule.

21 Jul 2015 22:13:30

Id rather keep Napier and deng than just MKG

22 Jul 2015 04:25:07
Sixers pass. First rounders are hard to get. Napier isn't worth that.

22 Jul 2015 15:15:50
Tre: what if the pick was lottery protected for 2 years then turned into 2 second rounders?

22 Jul 2015 15:29:23
It's lottery protected Tregib it likely you guys keep it. Heat pass

21 Jul 2015 20:35:26

1) Haywood for Chalmers and Bird man
- Mia dumps cap
-LBJ gets his team back

2) Bayless and Gutierrez (waive) for McRoberts
-better backup for Dragic
-bucks get a PF

Heat opens up 11.5 mill from deals

Sign Kevin Seraphin 1 year 6 mil

Wade/ Winslow/Green/Dragic
Deng/walker/ ennis
Bosh/ Stats/Haslem

22 Jul 2015 00:43:11
They wouldn't be able to give seraphim that much but other than that, this was believable.

22 Jul 2015 02:04:46
these are the worst moves the heat could make you obviously not a fan
we definitely not going to help lebron out

22 Jul 2015 07:05:48
Heat would save more than $25M after that trade. It might not help Miami on the court, but it would be a great move financially.

21 Jul 2015 15:23:27
Picks would need to be involved in some way, I'm just not sure how. Not a big fan of either of these three teams, but they each need something and could benefit from dealing with each other.

Miami trades: Mario Chalmers, Chris Anderson
Miami gets: Isaiah Canaan, Ricky Ledo
***This is a strict salary dump. Miami has been looking to move on from these two guys while shedding salary. After resigning some huge contracts this offseason, they need tax relief. This move sheds around $8M in salary which is much more in tax $.

Knicks trade: Jose Calderon, Cleanthony Early, Ricky Ledo
Knicks get: Mario Chalmers, Chris Anderson, Jerami Grant
***The Knicks are in an interesting spot. They spent their money this offseason not on a Robin for Carmelo but on solid role players. Their plan should be this: make a playoff push in the East to draw in interest as the cap spikes. In this move, they get Chalmers who can start at the point, but more importantly they upgrade the roster slightly to maybe make the playoffs. More importantly than that, they gain valuable cap space for next summer. This move is risky, sure. But it creates hope in my opinion.

Sixers trade: Isaiah Canaan, Jerami Grant
Sixers get: Jose Calderon, Cleanthony Early
***Right now Pierre Jackson is slated to start at the point. That's totally fine, but they could use an experienced hand to at least handle the second unit. Calderon would also help them reach the cap minimum if they haven't already reached it. Plus, Hinkie is a lover of draft picks, and as I stated earlier picks will be involved in the deal and here is where they would land.

Recap: Miami gets huge tax relief, Knicks add talent and cap room next summer, Sixers reach minimum and add a pick or two.

Any trade that involves the Sixers receiving Calderon without additional picks isn't going to happen. I wish you Knicks fans would stop trying to throw your trash down I95.

In this deal, Grant and Earley are arguably a wash. Calderon is a liability due to his contract. Canaan's contract has a remaining $2mil on it. Calderon has a remaining $14mil on it.

As for picks, neither the Knicks nor Miami have picks to offer. The Knicks owe their next pick to Denver/Toronto and Miami can't trade a 1st round pick until 2023. A player coming out in 2023 is now a 12 year old. What's that, a rising 6th grader?

Sixers don't want Calderon. He's a joke! Knicks are stuck there for sure.

Come on Sixers fan, you stole my logo.

I changed mine to the Old School logo back from the 70s.

No respect, no respect at all.
