I doubt very much that Boston will let Crowder go, he's a RFA and Boston will match any contract anyone gives him.

Oklahoma City Thunder Off-Season Plans and 2015-16 Roster:

Trades:
OKC-ORL
OKC Trades: Ibaka, Novak, 2015 First Round Pick
ORL Trades: 2015 First Round Draft Pick

OKC does this to get rid of cap to sign Kanter and also to move up in the draft to draft a good young player.
Orlando does this to get a very good defensive big and to still get a lottery draft pick.

OKC-SAS
OKC Trades: P. Jones, J. Lamb
SAS Trades: Late 2015 First Round Draft Pick

OKC does this to get rid of players that can't get any time on the court, plus save a little on salary.
SAS does this to get some youth they can develop into their system.

Resign:
E. Kanter

Draft:
5: J. Winslow
26: Terry Rozier
48: R. Christmas

Thunder 2015-16 Roster:
PG- Westbrook/Augustin/T. Rozier
SG- A. Roberson/Waiters/Morrow
SF- Durant/Winslow/Huestis
PF- Kanter/Collinson
C- Adams/McGary/R. Christmas

Gives them a still youth and, and a very talented team. This adds a lot of talent to their bench as well as their starting lineup. If they can stay healthy, then they will be Championship contenders.

Agree1 Disagree4

24 Apr 2015 13:35:29
Ibaka is worth more than Orlando's pick.

24 Apr 2015 15:16:34
If I´m Orlando, I´d do it in a heart beat. Don´t think the Thunder would, though.

24 Apr 2015 22:10:26
Orlando say no thanks.Ibaka is a good player but has many 2 injure

23 Apr 2015 16:16:26
MIN-NYK Trade

MIN Trades: 2015 First Round Pick (Top 1 Protected)
NYK Trades: 2015 First Round Pick (Protected 2-3)

This is a very interesting trade that won't happen, but would be very interesting

Agree1 Disagree3

24 Apr 2015 13:36:49
Why would the team that has the higher pick make this trade without an additional asset thrown in? They both want the same two players.

24 Apr 2015 13:41:17
I don't get it? The first pick for the second or third pick?

24 Apr 2015 14:19:43
Makes no sense

24 Apr 2015 15:25:56
It's a terrible trade,Minnesota is more likely to lose their pick than New York

23 Apr 2015 16:12:01

24 Apr 2015 13:41:53
Victor olidipo is going to fetch more then a fourth overall and junk.

24 Apr 2015 14:20:46
Lakers pass

24 Apr 2015 15:18:38
Quite intresting for Orlando. Unfortunatelly Hennigan loves Oladipo too much and doing this trade, might mean admitting mistakes (especially fry).

23 Apr 2015 12:34:44
Lakers

Lal-Phi

Lal get Nerlens Noel and their pick next year back

Phi get Julius Randle and the 4th pick

Sixers select Russell and Winslow

Russell
Winslow
Saric
Randle
Embiid

Lakers then sign Kevin Love, Khris Middleton and Rajon Rondo

- Rondo's deal would not be that big

Rondo/Clarkson
Kobe/Young
Middleton/Johnson
Love/Davis
Noel/Sacre

Agree4 Disagree2

24 Apr 2015 08:15:01
sixers say NO real fast

24 Apr 2015 13:43:24
Well Randel has potential but he so undersized. So really it's a prospect and the fourth for Noel. I think this only happens if Philly picks a big with own pick this year. So okafor or towns. Then they might do this trade.

24 Apr 2015 14:21:24
Sixers say hell no

23 Apr 2015 15:59:10
this trade is laughable. good luck with that one minnesota.

23 Apr 2015 22:02:24
Seriously Minnesota? No chance ANYONE would go for this. I love that you wrote 31 pick instead of 2nd rounder. Just ridiculous.

24 Apr 2015 00:37:34
Most people will say no for Bobcats but their biggest need right now is shooters who is a SG

23 Apr 2015 01:56:38
76ers / Bulls / Kings

A very similar trade was posted about a week ago, I just changed it a bit, but I love the trade for all teams involved.

76ers trade Lakers #1 next year(only 1-3 protected), OKC's #1 next year, and this years #35 and #37 picks.
76ers get Kings #6 pick and Jason Thompson's bad contract(owed 6.4 mill next year and 6.8 the following year).
76ers do it to draft hezonja and Russell to form backcourt of the future at 6'5' and 6'8" with superstar potential that can shoot!

Kings Trade #6 pick and unload Thompson's contract.
Kings get Taj Gibson, Lakers #1(only 1-3 protected next year), and picks #35 & #37 this year.
Kings do it to get a lottery pick next year(There's goes to Chicago, 1-10 protected), get a excellent PF to work with cousins, and a stabilizing vet Cousins could learn from on and off the court. I think Karl values this. Also, they unload thompsons contract, freeing up some FA money and pick up 2 high second rounders this year.

Bulls trade taj Gibson(solve the longjam problem at PF.
Bulls get OKC's #1 next year.
Bulls do it to get a #1 pick back for Gibson.
win/win/win
**maybe we through another second rounder the bulls way to sweeten the deal a bit?
if lakers pick doesn't convey this year, I think this is the best way I've seen yet to get Russell and Hezonja in the backcourt next season. thanks again for whoever came up with this trade to begin with.

Agree2 Disagree2

23 Apr 2015 13:06:03
I like it. Would like to keep the Lakers pick but if it goes, then it goes. I see you decided to not waive Thompson once he gets to the Sixers. No reason to do that anymore. That leaves Sixers with 4 man front court of Embiid, Noel, T. Robinson (who I expect back) and Thompson- leaving Saric one more year in Euroball to develop.

I also like that, from what I read somewhere, Hezonja and Saric are friendly.

If Sixers are at #3, do you want Mudiay or Russell to go with Hezonja? Mudiay might attract more defensive attention than Russell, opening space for Hezonja's slashing to the rim and/or catch and shoot.

I do have questions about Mudiay and his choose to play in China instead of the NCAA.

G: Wroten, Hezonja, Russell/Mudiay, McRae
SF: Covington, Grant
C/PF: Noel, Embiid, Thompson, T. Robinson
Two more spots available for veterans: Luc Mam, J. Rich, or mystery veteran PG.

23 Apr 2015 13:33:19
makes a lot of sense. really good thinking

23 Apr 2015 13:45:37
Actually love that trade for all involved. Kings might pass though. Taj Gibson isn't worth a first rounder.

23 Apr 2015 15:07:06
Sixers don't get the OKC pick this year.

23 Apr 2015 15:07:46
^^ My bad you said next year's pick

24 Apr 2015 08:30:23
Phillyrich1.I take Russell over Mudiay every time for sixers. I like your point about mudiay opening things up for hezonja wih his slashing drives, but I feel Russell will open things up better and work the pick and roll better with embiid and noel. With noel on the floor, I want both guards to be able to shoot.

24 Apr 2015 14:29:32
Phillyrich
The reason that I think that mudiay decided to play in china is because he was going to be a one and done in college and he wanted to have some experience playing pro before the nba. And because he got paid I think 1 mill to play in china.

25 Apr 2015 14:19:33
I wasn't sure why he want to China. I was kind of guessing that he didn't want to be bothered with textbooks or that he might be a chuckle-head.

I have a feeling Hezonja is going to sign to stay in Europe and play out 3 years there. Just a feeling, no evidence- other than if he stays in Europe for 3 years he bypasses the rookie wage scale. That would push him down the draft board and make him more easily acquirable.

His team can make him an offer in May, before the NBA draft.

22 Apr 2015 23:21:54
after Knicks draft Jahlil Okafor

Knicks get Kevin Durant and Jeremy Lamb

Thunder get Jahlil Okafor, Rudy Gay, and Tim Hardaway Jr.

Kings get 2016 unprotected Knicks 1st round pick, Enes Kanter, Cleanthony Early, and Jose Calderon

Thunder
PF. S. Ibaka/ M. McGary/ P. Jones
SF. R. Gay/ T. Hardaway Jr/ K. Singler
C. J. Okafor/ S. Adams/ N. Collison
SG. D. Waiters/ A. Morrow/ A. Roberson
Pg. R. Westbrook/ D. Augustine/ C. Payne #14 pick

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Apr 2015 13:46:10
Knock can't trade consecutive first rounders. If they even have a first rounder next year.

23 Apr 2015 14:48:17
Raptors own Knicks 2016 1st, First pick Knicks can trade is 2018 (or '17 at the draft).

23 Apr 2015 22:04:54
Knicks don't have/cant trade their 2016 pick. And they are not giving up that much for someone who could potentially come for free AND plays the same position as their current best player. They would be better served finding a floor general and some size up front. If SOMEHOW, they are able to sign Gasol and monroe(i realize that's a HUGE if), i'd draft mundiay and consider that a championship contender.

22 Apr 2015 22:23:24
Bucks and Lakers
Lakers Trade Nick Young
Bucks Trade Giannis Antetokoumpo and Projected 17th Pick

Agree2 Disagree2

23 Apr 2015 13:34:06
bucks pass. this is horrible trde

23 Apr 2015 13:37:07
So bucks give up a starter who has more talent and potential and a pick for a guy who is a roll player or a 6th man at best if he actually worked on his game instead of his celebrity status. Bucks laugh and say call them when lakers are back in the playoffs and have learnt what a rebuild actually is.

23 Apr 2015 14:49:42
Are you kidding?? I hope you are Lakers fan.

You would be lucky to get a 2nd for Swaggy, much less the Freak and a 1st.

23 Apr 2015 16:14:13
why would the bucks do this? giannis is better than nick young

23 Apr 2015 18:26:31
Lol greek freek and 1st rnd pick are ucrazyyyy

23 Apr 2015 22:05:37
Bucks may need to throw in a future 1st as well. Nick Young did have a game with 20 points this year. 20 POINTS!!

24 Apr 2015 00:40:13
Antetokounpo has so much potential, he alone is more than nick young

Also the pick alone is worth more than nick young

22 Apr 2015 21:10:04
With thunder firing the coach Kevin durant said he specifically loved. There's little doubt the thunder will be able to keep durant past this season. They should trade him for top value

Sixers trade: their first this year(3), lakers pick next season top three protected, and the Miami pick top ten protected.

Thunder trade: Kevin durant.

Sixers now have enough asset intrigue guys like kawhi Leonard and jimmy butler. Sixers offer front loaded max contracts to both and take who ever bits. Then sign vets

Thunder get three high first rounders in two years along with a top six for sure pick this season. No one else in the league can offer this many firsts in a two year span. They also clear a good amount of cap. Gives them a. Chance to rebuild with a star in his prime in Westbrook.

Thoughts?

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Apr 2015 12:47:13
A, thunder wouldn't take that trade. B. Even though sixers want butler and Leonard, in order for them to take a front loaded contract they would have to want to leave their current teams. Neither do, so why would they sign those contracts?

23 Apr 2015 13:36:39
I would pass. I want to see what our team could look like from the drafting in two more years and only see sixers drafting their own players. so this will never hapen

23 Apr 2015 14:52:23
Durant said while he loved Brooks, he's 100% behind the move. No need for the Thunder to deal him yet.

That said, this is a fair trade, but I don't know why Philly does it as they may be renting Durant for a year and giving up too much of their future to do so.

24 Apr 2015 13:51:06
Pizza.
If I was Leonard is run from the Spurs. Yes they have some talent now but it's old talent. If he signs with them they will all retire a season into his deal. Who wants to go to the Spurs if they don't have Duncan ginolbili or Parker?? Nobody. So then the Spurs are stuck with one huge contract in Leonard. And nothing else.

Sixers could offer a team with young big men and Kevin durant. That's a lot to Interest me if I was him. As for jimmy butler. Bulls should match. But both the Spurs and bulls might hesitate slightly if they know by signing a front loaded contract there pretty much accepting going over the Cap next year big time. Something both teams hate doing over there history's.

22 Apr 2015 19:38:55
Ok, Rondo doesn`t click. An Ellis is not the go to gey for Mavs.

With 67 Cap room Mavs should:

Trade Ellis and Felton for a good pick. Sign Green for the MLE

Having approx. 45m

Sign Knight 3y 45m
Sign Matthews 3y 45m
Sign Aldridge 3y 60m

Chandler, Aldridge
Aldridge, Nowitzki
Parsons, Aminu
Matthews, Green
Knight, Harris

Agree1 Disagree3

23 Apr 2015 12:48:42
How in the world do the Mavs have 55 million in cap room? Parsons makes 15 mill. Chabdler makes like 12. Doesn't dirk make like 10? These numbers are absurd.

23 Apr 2015 14:55:31
Even if they trade Felton and Ellis (which no one is giving you a "good" pick for), the Mavs have $33M tied up in salaries. That leaves them $34M to spend, not $67M.

24 Apr 2015 00:41:10
Buddy, they do not have 67 million

22 Apr 2015 15:37:15
Lakers offseason
Trade young sacre Kelly and 27 pick to dump salary
Draft Russell and draft Robert upshaw
Now have about 35 mill
Sign rondo 2 yrs 12 mill not worth more than 8 mill per year now. Sign khris Middleton 14 mill and sign love for 16 mill sign Asik for mid level
PG rondo/ clarkson
SG Kobe/Russell
SF Middleton/ Johnson
PF Love/ randle
C Asik/black

Agree5 Disagree3

22 Apr 2015 19:44:00
Asik says no, Rondo says no, but otherwise. maybe.

22 Apr 2015 23:39:18
It's a waste to have Love & Randle on the same team. One won't get many minutes behind the other. Here's my scenario. The projected cap is $67.1M.
Sign M Gasol 4 yrs $88M ($20.1M salary 1st year)
Sign Love 4 yrs $80M ($18M salary 1st year)
Trade N Young for future 2nd rd pick, even if it's highly protected just get rid of him and no salary in return.
The the roster at this point is as follows:
Kobe ($25M)
Gasol ($20.1M)
Love ($18M)
Kelly ($1.7M)
Clarkson ($.85M)
Black ($.85M)
= $66.6M under the cap.

Sign and trade J Hill, J Randle, & '15 1st rd pick for K Leonard. This is under the assumption that the LAL will offer max contract to him and SAS don't want to match. This way, they get value for him. I don't know how likely this is, I doubt SAS wouldn't match. Salary is at $83.4M.
Offer Rondo MLE which is $5M-$7M I believe for 2 years. Fill the rest of the roster out with minimums.

Rondo
Kobe/Clarkson
Leonard
Love/Kelly
Gasol/Black

23 Apr 2015 12:50:36
The salary structure is absurd. Leonard won't come and the Spurs won't trade for that. And rondo takes 5 mill a year? Seriously?

23 Apr 2015 14:49:37
I like that actually

22 Apr 2015 12:05:18
Portland Trail Blazers Trade; Damian Lillard, C.J McCollum

22 Apr 2015 13:58:14
At this point, I'd rather have Westbrook than Paul.

22 Apr 2015 16:11:18
Westbrook is going nowhere its his team now.

22 Apr 2015 20:35:51
Blazers not giving nearly enough.

22 Apr 2015 10:25:31
Boston-Oklahoma City

Boston acquired Serge Ibaka and Jeremy Lamb
- rim protection that Boston is needing

Oklahoma City acquired Jared Sullinger, James Young and 1st round pick 2015
- hard to lose Ibaka, but this package will be good enough for him

Boston
-sign Khris Middleton

M. Smart / I. Thomas
A. Bradley / J. Lamb / C. Babb
K. Middleton / E. Turner
S. Ibaka / 1st round pick via Nets
T. Zeller / K. Olynyk

Randle cannot play SF, forget Love and pursue Durant next summer along with Conley.

Next season:
Clarkson
Kobe
Winslow
Randle
M Gasol

Following season:
Conley
Winslow
Durant
Randle
M Gasol

22 Apr 2015 17:58:20
If Kobe doesn't retire and comes back, the Lakers do not have the cap space for those two max contracts.

If Kobe retires, those two guys won't want to go to the Lakers.

I don't think the Lakers are a destination spot anymore. With the young superstar Kobe Bryant, they were. When Magic Johnson was there, they were. But those days are over.

If you want to play in LA, you go hang with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin now.

22 Apr 2015 06:30:44
Bulls get OJ Mayo

Bucks get Taj Gibson

22 Apr 2015 20:00:36

22 Apr 2015 04:55:56
Thunder need to get rid of lamb or jones or both and trade for Delon Wright after the draft or move up and take Stanley Johnson or Mario hezonja. Resign Kanye to a reasonable cost ($8 mil ish a year)

Knicks get Greak Freak, Michael Carter Williams, Jared Dudley, and #17 pick

Agree2 Disagree7

22 Apr 2015 15:36:36
Knick fans.

22 Apr 2015 16:13:13
Not going to happen Knicks lover. Greek Freak is their best player and they just trade for MCW and the Knicks are not going to give up their lottery pick either. Nobody wants Calderon.

22 Apr 2015 20:04:39
its not like LeBron is in this draft. Horrible

23 Apr 2015 02:07:27
For one i'm a thunder fan and for 2 Greak Freak is overrated and you guys are crazy for thinking he's worth more than the top pick in the draft

21 Apr 2015 23:34:52
76ers / Charlotte

SIxers trade LA's #1 next year(1-3 protected), OKC's #1 next year, and Covington for Charlottes #1 this year(slotted currently at #9).

Charlotte needs wing scoring, and Covington can shoot. He averaged 13.5ppg last year, hustles, and comes with a very cheap contract(Which adds greatly to his value). Also, Charlotee gets another top pick next year(In most peoples opinion, except for pizza, lakers will be a top lottery pick(4-9) and another #1 in OKC's pick(probably not until #20-25, but still a opportunity to get a quality player or use as a trading chip.

Sixers do it only if Hezonja slips to #9. Possible. Most mocks have him between 6-9.
Sixers take Russell with their #1, and have the backcourt of the future. 2 young guys that have incredible upside, superstar potential, what the Sixers are betting on.
PG: Russell 6'5", 19
SG: Hezonja 6'8", 20
SF: Grant 6'8" 20/Saric 6'10" 20
PF: Noel 6'11" 21
C: Embiid 7'0" 21
This entire rebuild is a gamble, banking on drafting guys with the most upside, player development, and team chemistry. Sixers still have there own #1 and Miami's #1 next year, following this possible trade.

For sixers it isn't worth it. If hornets get the 9th pick then I doubt hezonja will be available at the 9th pick. So sixers pass. Who knows the sixers might draft mario with their pick.

Too much to give up from Sixers perspective. The future LA pick will probably be higher than the current Charlotte pick. If so, then the Sixers completely overpay by adding both an additional #1 and Covington.

I'll give Charlotte the OKC pick and the Miami pick for their current #9. If Charlotte wants Covington too, they'll have to send back PJ Hairston to the Sixers.

Take out Covington and everything makes sense to me. And like you said I only do it the euro falls to nine.

Pelicans clear up depth and excess salary at the SG position and get a late 1st rounder.

Sixers get a solid SG who's not that old and distributes the ball. Not wild about his contract. But he fits what I want in my back court.

Spurs get a young Wroten and clear a spot for Aldridge signing.

Not bad. Good thought process.

21 Apr 2015 18:17:50
Splitter is useless to Pelicans,,would need a SF in deal

21 Apr 2015 18:34:45
Asik is a free agent this summer and would demand more than splitter's salary while producing pretty similar numbers.

21 Apr 2015 21:50:29
Sixers don't want average player. Evans is mediocre. So they say no.

22 Apr 2015 11:58:23
TreGib - Evans is pretty solid. What you expecting? The best player at every position or 1,000,000 draft picks with potential to be great? Doesn't work. Can't go wrong with a solid proven player with a few years experience to back it up.

22 Apr 2015 13:09:55
Tom: I agree. Evans is a pro. The Sixers are going to need some of those guys just to get the youth through the season. Plus, Evans is local.

I"m not saying do this trade, but its the right idea.

22 Apr 2015 15:43:10
Toms bakery and philly rich.

The Sixers are after stars not average players. O and did I mention he's on terrible deal?? He eleven million a year for four more years!! And in 2018 he get 15 million. Forget this guy. He's garbage for the price tag. You guys are nuts to want to take on that bad deal.

23 Apr 2015 00:10:05
TreGib - If the only players you ever take on are going to be 'stars', you're never going to have a team. Basketball doesn't work like that. Look at the role he plays for the pels now & tell me he's not a very solid player.

Also with the cap going up, having a guy who averaged 16.6PPG, 6.6AST & 5.5RBD's a game this year & can also play multiple positions, doesn't sound like a bad deal. Especially considering he'd be joint leading scorer, would lead the team in assists & be joint second in rebounds.

21 Apr 2015 16:23:26
Trying to figure out a way Sixers can trade for Lavine and it makes sense.

wolves trade: Pek, Lavine and their first rounder this year (1).

Sixers trade Noel and the lakers pick.

I think Sixers give up a ton in this deal but they can draft towns or okafor to replace Noel

Agree1 Disagree12

21 Apr 2015 17:44:04
I don't think Twolves would trade LaVine for any draft pick, not even a top 3 pick. He has the whole package, including great commitment. It will just take a few years.

21 Apr 2015 17:54:59
How do Sixers give up a tonne? Wolves move down a couple of spots in the draft and give up the player who has the most potential upside of the group.

21 Apr 2015 19:37:06
sixers say no

21 Apr 2015 21:54:21
Triangle o.

Sixers are giving a top ten pick next year and top six pick in Noel. Sixers get a top pick which is nice this year. Lavine who isn't nearly as good as these wolves fans think. Especially since they haven't won a game since he startered. and the Sixers are taking on the bad pek contract.

It's reasonable to think something there. But both teams are giving up (in their own opinion a really good player).
