Noooo way from okc

30 Mar 2015 11:10:23
MIN-DEN deal

MIN get Kenneth Faried and Denver's 1st projected 6th or 7th overall

DEN get Minnesota's 1st round pick projected 1 or 2 and Chase Budinger

Thus deal gives Minnesota a tested PF for their future and still a high pick

Denver will have the chance to have a franchise player to start rebuild

>> This could only happen if Wolves will think that Faried will be a fit for their team

Agree0 Disagree7

30 Mar 2015 11:46:06
Faried is not remotely worth that kind of jump.

Wolves offseason

Trade Pek to LaL for #27 pick
Trade Martin to OKC for #17 pick

Resign: Hummel, Hamilton, and KG
Sign: Kosta Koufos (3Y, 20M) and KJ Mcdaniels (1Y, 5M)

Draft #1 Karl-Anthony Towns
Draft #17 Sam Dekker
Draft #27 Buddy Heild

Trade all second rounders for cash

Lineup 2015-2016

Rubio/ Lavine/ Brown
Wiggins/ Mcdaniels/ Heild
Muhammad/ Dekker/ Hummel
Towns/ KG/ Payne
Dieng/ Koufus/ Hamilton

30-40 wins

Agree2 Disagree5

30 Mar 2015 02:21:01
I don't think Koufos would leave Memphis to be a backup in Minnesota, and I don't think LA wants any part of Peks contract

30 Mar 2015 03:10:23
Only real difference is towns. Minus some good players. No way losing pek and Barton and adding just towns increases wins by 15-25

30 Mar 2015 18:04:42
Pizza, I am saying 30 wins considering everyone is healthy. If everyone were healthy the WHOLE season this year we would be in the playoff hunt like last year. Also I am not basing the projection of wins off on only towns. Also you have to take into consideration the development of young players like wiggins. For example, Muhammad went from 3PPG to 13ppg. Wiggins, dieng, Lavine, and Muhammad's development in the offseason could lead the team to 30+ wins.

30 Mar 2015 18:29:07
why would wolves trade their 2nd rounder's for cash. They can use the assets and there is going to be really good talent available in the 2nd.

30 Mar 2015 02:34:00
Pitons will match offers for Jackson.

30 Mar 2015 10:19:32
Sensible trade I just don't think we will land R. Jackson yet we will maybe land C. Joseph. Also I would not resign J. Smith and use that space for C/Pf coming from draft or if it will not be this year selection maybe some vet. Don't have nothing against J.S. yet I think Knicks can do better in fa.

30 Mar 2015 21:05:23
I still see Knicks going Okafor. That's just me

29 Mar 2015 11:20:29

HOU get Ryan Anderson and Jrue Holiday


NOLA get Trevor Ariza and Terrence Jones


Agree4 Disagree7

29 Mar 2015 15:46:44
Pelicans say absolutely not, terrible trade

29 Mar 2015 20:55:29
Pelicans say no

30 Mar 2015 01:49:40
And why would pelicans do this

Rondae will not be there at 27

29 Mar 2015 18:50:47
Rondae is projected between 21 and 30. so he may be there.

29 Mar 2015 22:06:21
Oh, I saw him at 15 a couple of times but ok

28 Mar 2015 23:39:21
Bulls get Melo R.Jackson Early
Pistons get Rose McDermott
Knicks get P.Gasol Gibson 7th 21st



Knicks sign Draymond Green & Marc Gasol
Hardaway for Frank Kaminsky-18th


Agree1 Disagree12

29 Mar 2015 18:53:40
The knicks may have the least athletic front court in the history of the NBA with green, Pau, Marc and Kaminsky. Knicks wouldn't have interest in doing this.

Still think if the balls fall correctly, knicks get Okafor, sign Monroe, perhaps rondo. And they have a rather solid lineup. Rondo(or jackson or dragic), hardaway/galloway, melo, monroe, okafor. Okafor will be solid for years to come.

31 Mar 2015 15:06:05
So let me get this right Detroit gets a player who has not played a full season in four years and a big contract, and a tweeter who can't play defense for Reggie Jackson. Detroit says no

28 Mar 2015 23:18:33
Min gets (s&t) Lamarcus Aldrige

Por gets Pekovic, Bennett, and Towns

Por lineup

Towns/ Bennett
Lopez/ Pekovic

Min lineup

Rubio/ Lavine
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Aldrige/ KG

Agree3 Disagree13

29 Mar 2015 13:55:47
That isn't enough for Aldridge

29 Mar 2015 16:24:05
So a free agent is worth a number one pick and a former number one pick and pek. That seems like you should just sign him. Is he restricted?

29 Mar 2015 16:30:52
He is going to be a FA so his value decreases, so maybe still not enough but it is a lot

29 Mar 2015 18:55:37
Echoing the people above. basically anything is too much. You don't offload your entire future in a sign and trade. He wouldn't agree to go to Minnesota if it means you have to trade off a bunch of valuable pieces.

29 Mar 2015 20:42:53
What I meant when I said that it wasn't enough, I assumed you meant as in his normal value. Either way, Pek and Bennett probably have highly lowered trade value, Pek because of his contract and Bennett because he looks like a huge bust.

30 Mar 2015 13:12:04
Lol what you meant was you didn't realize he was an upcoming free agent. Happens to the best of us.

28 Mar 2015 21:22:54
Lakers offseason!


4- SF Justice Winslow
26- C Dakari Johnson
34- PG Melo Trimble
38- SG Norman Powell

Lakers send #55 (from LAC), future 2nd, and Ryan Kelly to Detroit for #38 and Caron Butler

Detroit get 3m in cap and young stretch 4. Lakers move up in the draft and add a veteran SF who is good buds with Kobe.

Lakers Free Agent signings:

- DeAndre Jordan
( pitch: the team is building around you post Kobe era. He's now #1 option where as in LAC he's #3. That may be enough to leave money behind. )

- David West
( a serviceable vet who played with Scott and fits next to Jordan. Sign him to 3 years and let him mentor Randle as he develops. )

- Andre Miller
( another vet who can mentor Clarkson and Trimble. He fits Scott's system and can still play a solid 10-18 min a night. )

Jordan Clarkson / Andre Miller / Melo Trimble
Kobe Bryant / Nick Young / Norman Powell
Justice Winslow / Caron Butler
David West / Julius Randle / Tarik Black
DeAndre Jordan / Dakari Johnson / Robert Sacre

I think this team can compete, they still may not be a playoff team but I think they will be in the conversatation. They add better veterans and overall more talent. Clarkson is a year older and will only get better. Miller brings that Fisher leadership role model. Kobes back to show he can still ball as long as he has help. He will be happy to see veterans and friends added. I love Winslow and Johnson. Winslow is going to be a stud he just needs to develop. Johnson complements Jordan as he is skilled offensively. All around team with leadership, talent, and young studs to build after Kobe.

Agree0 Disagree5

28 Mar 2015 19:53:24
Chi - Sac - Nyk

Chi gets - DeAngleo Russell(1) Collison, and Calderon

Sac gets - Rose and Gibson

Nyk gets - McClemore, Snell, and 8th (WCS)

Chi drafts Dakari Johnson

Collison(Calderon) Russell - Butler - Gasol - Noah

Rose - Stauskas - Gay - Gibson - Cousins

Dragic - McClemore - Melo - Millsap - WCS

Agree1 Disagree6

28 Mar 2015 17:43:54

NYK gets #4 pick and Jordan hill

Sign Harris and Jordan

Draft Towns and Mudiay

Jordan/ Hill

Lal get Carmelo Anthony

Sign: Deng and Lopez


Agree1 Disagree4

28 Mar 2015 19:50:26
Anthony is the focal building block of the Knicks. They just need to add a few FA. I can see the Knicks trading their pick if not top 3 to add others around Melo. They paid him for a reason. The Knicks organization that this year was going to be a flop. They had Bargs and Amare tied up with half the salary. Next season they will go after Gasol, Love, or Aldridge to put aside Melo.

28 Mar 2015 17:12:46
offseason trade

Cavs Get: Faried
Nuggets Get: Haywood, Miller

Cavs can put Tristan Thompson in a s&t to possibly get another star while Denver can finally bail on the Lawson-Faried core

Agree2 Disagree6

29 Mar 2015 18:46:41
They can 'bail' in a better way than that.

28 Mar 2015 16:13:35

Det trades pick #8 for Julius Randle

Jennings-Jackson-Kcp-Randle- Drummond

They trade a mid lottery pick for a guy, yes, coming off a huge injury, but he is still a very good prospect worth the eighth pick

Lakers trade pick 4 and randle for pick 1

Draft Okafor
Lineup without big time FA

They trade a guy with potential but he is coming off and injury and they jump to the #1 spot which can solidify a nice core with Okafor-Clarkson and they also have money to get a FA like Kevin Love and Loul Deng lineup: Clarkson-Kobe-Deng-Love-Okafor

Min trades pick 1 for pick 4 and 8

Draft Winslow and Lyes

Martin/ Winslow
Wiggins/ Muhammad
KG/ Lyes
Dieng/ Pek

I'm not sold on Towns yet. Simply swapping the first pick for the fourth and eighth is easy. Winslow might be a stretch at 4 but he has been looking like the best prospect these last two big games. Lyes is an interesting pick. He has been playing SF on Kentucky but is definitely a PF. His jumper is nice which the wolves need for a stretch 4 and a big lineup could come in with Rubio-wiggins- Lyes-KG-Dieng

Agree2 Disagree9

28 Mar 2015 19:00:46
Because you are unsure about Towns, you want the Wolves to reach for two prospects? Neither of those prospects you have them taking are worth taking at that spot. Winslow is close but there are better prospects than him available at 4, Lyles is projected to go in the mid teens. And neither have the same potential as a guy like Towns

28 Mar 2015 22:30:03
What I've seen is that Lyes has been around #8-#14

29 Mar 2015 13:57:19
Winslow is expected to go in basically all drafts, 8-11. Lyles. highest I've seem is 11 and as low as 16. Guy above makes a good point. You aren't sold on towns. There are highest ranked and more likely better players available. But you prefer onsyead of the pretty safe bets, you trade down and take gambles on drafting people way ahead of where they should go? Smart move as always.

29 Mar 2015 16:50:17
Why not just sign Draymond Green or draft Montrelz Harrell

29 Mar 2015 20:45:28
@jtub s33

Unless the Wolves find some way to unload Peks contract, they can't afford Green

31 Mar 2015 15:09:28
LA is not going to trade Randle so its doesn't matter weather Detroit would do this trade or not. Plus the Pistons are going to go after Green with a max deal. Jennings injury all but finishes his career. Its the only injury plyers have not really come back from and have the same explosiveness

28 Mar 2015 10:57:43

IND get Jabari Parker, Nick Young and Jordan Hill
- IND get a new building block and a scorer off the bench + a better back-up
- draft Mario Hezonja

G. Hill / R. Stuckey / D. Sloan
M. Hezonja / N. Young
J. Parker / C. Miles / S. Hill
D. West / J. Hill
R. Hibbert / I. Mahinmi

MIL get Lakers 1st round pick 2015 and Ryan Kelly
- Jabari gets injured and it would be fine to replace him with another top pick
- draft Karl Anthony Towns
- resign Khris Middleton

M. Carter-Williams / J. Bayless / T. Ennis
K. Middleton / O. Mayo
G. Antetokounmpo / J. Dudley
K. Towns / E. Ilyasova / R. Kelly
J. Henson / Z. Pachulia

LAL get Paul George
- well, Lakers get the superstar next to Kobe who will become their new franchise player
- add pieces
Defensive center (Robin Lopez)
Point Guard (Goran Dragic)

G. Dragic / J. Clarkson
K. Bryant / W. Ellington
P. George / Rockets pick
J. Randle / E. Davis
R. Lopez / R. Sacre

Agree1 Disagree9

28 Mar 2015 13:39:33
The sixes already own the Lakers 2015 pick, this can't happen

28 Mar 2015 14:01:50
The lakers may keep it and if they do they can draft a player then trade him. So it's possible. What's not realistic is the lakers getting towns.

28 Mar 2015 14:10:15
I'd rather have Jabari Parker than Towns.

29 Mar 2015 13:58:56
I'd rather have towns. Bigger. Far better defense. Not undersized for the position. Oh yeah, NOT RECOVERING FROM A TORN ACL!!

28 Mar 2015 04:47:05
Crazy idea that probably would never happen, but I'll share it.

Rockets get Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Dion Waiters, Steven Adams, and a first round pick

Thunder get Dwight Howard, James Harden, and Donatas Motiejunas

I think it's a somewhat fair trade, all though I'd have to say it favors the Thunder. They reunite Russell Westbrook and James Harden to form the best back court in the NBA (Even better than Steph Curry and Klay Thompson). They also bring in a player who when healthy is easily a top 5 center in the league. Motiejunas would also be a worthy starter on this team. Their starting five would be incredible:

C:Dwight Howard
PF:Donatas Motiejunas
SF:Perry Jones
SG:James Harden
PG:Russell Westbrook

If Durant were healthy, this trade would be more fair. Durant's foot issue definitely hurts his trade value, but I've heard that he's expected to fully recover after this surgery. When healthy, he's a top three player in the league with the potential to get even better. Harden has developed into as good of an offensive player as Durant, but Durant is elite defensively as well. He only has a year left on his contract, but Houston is a pretty big market and Durant played college ball at Texas so I don't see why he wouldn't re-sign. Durant would also remain teammates with several of his OKC pals: Serge Ibaka, Dion Waiters, and Steven Adams.

C:Steven Adams
PF:Serge Ibaka
SF:Kevin Durant
SG:Dion Waiters
PG:Patrick Beverly

I feel like this starting five has a good blend of defense and offense. The Rockets could also use Beverly, Trevor Ariza, and their additional first rounder as trade bait for an upgrade at PG. Waiters would develop into a good scorer alongside Durant and can be a very good defender when he wants to be. Ibaka is an underrated player. He's athletic as anyone in the league and is continuing to develop offensive skills. He's already an elite defender, but has the potential to be an elite offensive player as well. I was high when I came up with the idea and typed this, so tell me how I did.

Agree2 Disagree8

28 Mar 2015 09:36:00
You basically change the jersey design of Thunder and Rockets

28 Mar 2015 14:03:08
Durant is elite defensively? Major news to me!

28 Mar 2015 19:02:44
Rockets say Hell No

28 Mar 2015 02:02:51
Chi - Okc - Min - Sac

Chi gets KD and Dieng

Okc gets Cousins, McClemore, and Muhhamad

Sac gets Noah and Butler

Min gets Kanter, Robertson, and McDermott

Rose - Snell - KD - Gasol - Dieng

Westbrook - Waiters - McClemore - Ibaka - Cousins

Collison - Butler - Gay - Draft - Noah

Rubio - Wiggins - McDermott - Towns - Kanter

Agree1 Disagree7

28 Mar 2015 13:29:35
Wolves say no, Kanter has started to play well, but Dieng still has more value than him and Muhammad definitely has more value than Robertson and McDermott

28 Mar 2015 14:06:20
Wolvesfan NO WHERE IS DIENG OF HIGHER VALUE THAN KANTER. Muhammad is never on the court to have value. Stop acting like those two are beasts and highly covered in the nba anywhere except Minnesota. Because they aren't. You'd make out quite well with this trade in getting a young high level center that could realistically grow into a cornerstone of the franchise. Nothing you have in oft injured Muhammad nor decent dieng

28 Mar 2015 14:35:27
You must not watch a Wolves game then, also this is the first time Kanter has shown anything near the potential he is supposed to have and if the Wolves wanted him they could just go after him in free agency. And where did I say these two are beasts? They are both players with only slightly less potential than Kanter himself. And maybe you should check your facts a little bit, Muhammad has been injured once, and it is a torn ligament in his finger at that, and was playing great before the injury, realistically giving him the same potential as Kanter as he is only in his second year

28 Mar 2015 14:49:24
The only thing Kanter has on Dieng is Offense. Dieng is better rebounder, defender and shot blocker. O yea give me Dieng over overrated Kanter anyday

28 Mar 2015 16:22:40
kanter isn't overrated but he is no where near diengs level defensively and dien is no where near kanter offensively

28 Mar 2015 17:29:41
Dieng is better at everything except post moves. But dieng is working on it and getting better. also, Dieng is developing a mid-range jump shot which Kanter can barely dream about

29 Mar 2015 14:05:14
I'm wondering how my stats are off. Didn't muhammad play 37 games last year and 38 games this year? Did he miss all the games last year because he wasn't good enough? I'm sorry I don't really pay attention to role players in small markets that play less than half the games. So perhaps I'm missing something as to how he missed over half the games in his 2 seasons on the league.

28 Mar 2015 01:42:19
If the knicks draft Russell:
sign wesley matthews for less than 10 mil a year ( he is injured will play at mid season and may come cheaper after coming off an injury)

if wesley matthews is not possible sign danny green or try getting monta ellis

sign deandre jordan and tristan thompson
sign kevin love and robin lopez

if knicks draft Towns try getting any and if possible all:
for PG: brandon knight (he is a restricted FA)
for CLsign roy hibbert
for PF: sign scola (reserve)
for SG: sign lou williams and belinelli

Agree1 Disagree3

28 Mar 2015 01:02:55

Min gets Blake Griffin

Rubio/ Lavine

Lac gets Pek, Martin and #3 pick Johnson

Resign Jordan and sign Millsap

Redick/ Crawford

Agree1 Disagree8

28 Mar 2015 13:31:53
Clippers say no, and by taking on the contracts of Pek and Martin they wouldn't be able to resign Jordan and definitely wouldn't be able to get Millsap

28 Mar 2015 13:34:35
So the clippers trade an MVP like player in Griffen for 2 players that won't start and a draft pick you suggest be used on a guy way ahead of where he is projected? Hot dang sounds like a winner to me!

28 Mar 2015 17:31:43
I agree with you Pizza, but Martin and pekovic would upgrade the bench so much they would have all guys that have started before on their bench. Also I have to disagree with Blake being a MVP

29 Mar 2015 14:07:06
Tmoney, that rationale is laughable. Fine, no MVP. But a top 10 player.

29 Mar 2015 21:30:18
why would clips do this trade

28 Mar 2015 00:58:47
Min-Gs- Hou

Houston gets Martin, Bennett, Barnes, Livingston, #1 pick Russel

Russel/ Beverely
Barnes/ Ariza

GS gets James Harden

Bogut/ Speights

Min gets Klay and Jones

Wiggins/ Muhammad

Agree1 Disagree11

28 Mar 2015 13:34:23
This is just plain silly, there is no way Harden gets traded and that wouldn't be enough for him. Not to mention that Harden and Curry would never work in the same offense, both are ball dominant guards.

28 Mar 2015 16:08:42
Harden>Klay but Klay fits the team better than Harden (defense and not ball-dominant) and they wouldn't risk breaking up the splash bros. Plus HB and Sdot? No thanks

28 Mar 2015 16:24:59
please refrain from calling him Sdot

28 Mar 2015 17:34:09
I would rather have harden and Curry because you would have two guys that are the best at their position and would need to be double teamed all of the time. Also harden is ball dominant but he gets the most assists on his team also and curry and him would set ecother up all of the time

28 Mar 2015 19:03:53
Rockets will not trade Harden especially for that garbage

27 Mar 2015 20:12:46
Min- Chi

Min gets Gasol and Mirotic

Rubio/ Lavine
Martin/ Neal
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Mirotic/ Payne/ KG
Gasol/ Pekovic

Chicago gets D'Angelo Russel and Gorgui Dieng

Resign Butler and Sign Brandon Bass

Rose/ Brooks
Russel/ Hinrich
Butler/ Dunlevey/ McDermott
Gibson/ Bass
Noah/ Dieng

Fair value?

Agree4 Disagree7

27 Mar 2015 20:59:26
Bulls get wayyyy too much

27 Mar 2015 23:07:22
It would be fair if it was Marc Gasol not Pau

27 Mar 2015 23:08:23
minny say no

28 Mar 2015 00:52:41
How bout D'Angelo and Pek??

28 Mar 2015 13:36:40
How about the first is worth more. Gasol is an expiring contract at that point and mirotic, while not bad, he isn't really the most accurate shooter ever. He's shooting under 40% and not positive but isn't he older than most rookies? No reason to trade that top pick for any of that.

27 Mar 2015 20:05:19

OKC gets Butler(s&t), Noah, Dunlevey, McDermott

Russ/ Augustine
Butler/ McDermott
Dunlevey/ Singler
Ibaka/ Collison
Noah/ Adams

Chi gets Kevin Durant and Enes Kanter

Rose/ Brooks
Snell/ Hinrich
Durant/ Mirotic
Gasol/ Gibson
Kanter/ Mohammad

Agree3 Disagree4

27 Mar 2015 20:59:49
Again Bulls get wayyyy too much

Agree10 Disagree6

28 Mar 2015 15:11:54
I just don't see why Portland does this. The only one worth anything for them in this trade is Plumlee. Although Batum is not having a good year everybody knows what he is capable of and he is still much better then Dudley. And Mayo is nice to have coming off the bench but still not worth it for the Blazers

28 Mar 2015 16:26:08
blazers get rid of batums contract while making their bench more formidable

27 Mar 2015 16:45:05
Kevin Love For Al Jefferson #CavsNation

Agree1 Disagree6

27 Mar 2015 16:55:04
hornets won't do it because their would be doubt that love will resign with them.

27 Mar 2015 17:16:01

27 Mar 2015 17:37:38

27 Mar 2015 19:09:15
Dumb trade for the Cavs

27 Mar 2015 19:15:47
exactly my point so why would hornets do it.

27 Mar 2015 21:01:04
That wasn't your point. You had no idea Jefferson is a free agent.

27 Mar 2015 16:26:07

Toronto gets Anthony Bennett

Lowry/ Vasquez
Derozan/ Williams
Ross/ Caboclo
Johnson/ Bennett
Valancunias/ Nogueria

*give up a late first and get rid of Hayes contract for a guy who, yes, has looked like a bust but he is from Canada and any change of cenery would be great for this guy.*

Mil gets #1 overall pick and Chuck Hayes and #22 pick

Antetokounpo/ Dudley
Towns(#1)/ Obryant

Min Gets Jabari Parker

Rubio/ Lavine
Martin/ Neal
Wiggins/ Muhammad
Parker/ KG
Dieng/ Pek

Agree3 Disagree6

27 Mar 2015 16:58:55
Minny say no way. Why would they want parker who plays the same position as wiggins. They would rather have a big in this years draft than a serious injury that parker suffered. Look, it just won't happen.

27 Mar 2015 17:38:49
@gosixers jabari parker can play the 3 & 4 while wiggins can play the 2 & 3, not saying that this trade would happen but your reasoning for it not to happen is not justified.

27 Mar 2015 18:58:36

Gosixers26 is right, why would the Wolves want a guy coming off serious injury who is an undersized 4, when they can get a 7 foot pf/c prospect at the top of the draft, which is a position of need. The Wolves have enough guys who can play small forward

27 Mar 2015 19:58:17
Parker is the next Carmelo Anthony and although he hasn't played much he has proven he can play the four and would be a mismatch against anyone

27 Mar 2015 21:02:01
Hahah ^^^^^ absurd to claim him melo

27 Mar 2015 23:19:50
U go ahead and keep thinking parker is the next melo. Both of their game r differ.

28 Mar 2015 16:13:13
Jabari Parker> better than any player in this years draft. Towns, Okafor, and Russell are all good but not as good IMO.

28 Mar 2015 17:36:37
Their game is not that different if you have ever watched either of them and know anything about basketball

29 Mar 2015 14:20:16
I watch a lot of melo. Not so much parker seeing as he had only 25 games. What I see in parker is a shooter. Undersized. Terrible defense. Slow before the ACL even slower after. And not a leader. The team was better after the injury than before. I'll bet on okafor muindey and towns before betting on parker after the ACL.

29 Mar 2015 21:41:35
Their game is differ and is going to be more differ after parkers acl tear. The reason why u say parkers game is like melo is because u saw one of his interviews when he said he plays like melo and pierce. Melo is more calm and patient than parker is. And skillset wise embiid is the best player in their draft especially if he can stay healthy. And I would take oak, towns, mudiay, and russell over an injured acl tear parker.

Chicago not giving up much?? Mirotic is a ROY candidate who's double doubled since the AS break. Their 1st is going to be in the 20 range. Gibson is still a valuable trade piece, and while McDermott has not had a great first season, he'll still have some trade value. And all for the overpaid underperforming Stephenson, Dieng who wouldn't be a starter on this team, and the seldom seen Vonleh.

Bulls say no!

27 Mar 2015 13:31:46
I do like the trade as a Wolves fan, but Triangle O is right, Bulls are giving up a lot of valuable pieces for not much return

27 Mar 2015 13:46:49
i viewed it as Dieng would be Noahs eventual succesor, Vonleh would replace Gasol and Stephenson could run the point if rose doesn't return to form, and then they have money to max out Butler and sign another piece.

Future line up of:

pg. stephenson
sg. butler
sf. FA
pf. vonleh
c. dieng

27 Mar 2015 15:54:04
Dieng will be an All-Star in 2 years

27 Mar 2015 17:00:52
yea right dieng is just a ok player. I don't see any flashes of him becoming an all star.

27 Mar 2015 19:59:56

You don't watch the wolves then. Dieng has been playing very solid and it is just like the fourth year he has been playing 19p-11r-6b in one game is pretty good

27 Mar 2015 23:24:12
U act like i'm sayin he sucks when i'm not. i'm just sayin I don't see him competing with other players that play the same position for an all star spot.

27 Mar 2015 09:05:31
Okc nyk cle

Okc get love and shumpert

Ny get thompson and cavs 1st future and

27 Mar 2015 08:49:14
Chicago Okc Toronto

Agree4 Disagree5

27 Mar 2015 11:11:26
Totally one sided for the Bulls

27 Mar 2015 11:52:52
That is a giid trade. I would love Jimmy Butler be Westbrook's partner when Durant leave and they also get a young athletic sf

27 Mar 2015 08:38:44
Portland get Kevin Durant and Tony Wroten


Okc get Phila 1st 2015, Por 1st, Nic Batum and Aaron Afflalo


Phi get Damian Lillard


Agree7 Disagree8

27 Mar 2015 13:41:42
this could actually work out for all 3 teams. But it won't happen.

27 Mar 2015 14:53:22
Actually a great trade for all teams. But won't happen due to teams not wanting to trade big name stuff.

27 Mar 2015 17:02:05
I wish it would happen though

27 Mar 2015 03:53:12

Resign KG and Hamilton

Waive Pek

Draft Cauley Stein *he is a future Deandre Jordan in my eyes and lobs with him wiggins and Lavine would be incredible*

Do Knockerbocker's trade: Dieng and Martin(maybe a pick) for Mirotic and McDermott

Sign Khris Middleton to a max

Rubio/ Lavine
Middleton/ Muhammad
Wiggins/ McDermott
Mirotic/ KG
Cauely-Stein/ Hamilton

Agree2 Disagree5

27 Mar 2015 13:36:57
The Wolves will not just waive Pek, and why would they draft Cauley-Stein when they could draft Okafor or Towns, two very clearly better prospects. And Khris Middleton is not worth a max contract

27 Mar 2015 15:57:38
The way Middleton has been playing, there is talk about it. Also I was thinking Cauely Stein because the draft is rigged for the big time markets like NY. And I know they would take a cap hit but pekovic is a big contract that would need to be out of the way for Middleon

27 Mar 2015 19:03:20
They would still take the full 12 million cap hit except now he isn't on the roster, so they still wouldn't be able to sign anyone to a max contract

27 Mar 2015 22:14:46
Middleton is no where near a max player. If another team is talking about offering it, so be it. Far better ways to spend money the. Throwing it all at him.

29 Mar 2015 14:22:55
The draft is actually rigged for the big markets like Cleveland. Yeaaaaaa

27 Mar 2015 03:00:33

Ping pong balls are rigged so they will probably fall to like the 6th pick

In that case Towns is gone for a Pf and Okafor is long gone.

Waive Pekovic to save some money

Only Resign KG on a two year deal but not for 12M like he has now

Sign: Paul Millsap with a lot of $$

Draft #6 Stanley Johnson

Rubio/ Lavine
Wiggins/ Martin
Johnson/ Muhammad
Millsap/ KG
Dieng/ Payne

Agree2 Disagree9

27 Mar 2015 12:56:10
How are the Wolves better by making these moves?

27 Mar 2015 13:40:07
Wolves can't drop below the 5th pick right now because they are in line to get the 2nd pick, also waiving Pek saves no money, they would still have to pay his contract and it would still count against the cap. We wouldn't be able to afford Millsap and Payne is absolutely not a center

27 Mar 2015 15:59:53
He can play center and has a lot big boy @wolvesfan and they do still save a lot of money from waiving pekovic. I know it is not the whole amount they save but they save a ton still and yes they can drop under five if you knew how the draft works

27 Mar 2015 19:06:12
The lottery guarantees that you won't drop 3 positions lower than your projected pick, in this case they are at 2 and can't go below 5. Also, they would take the full 12 mil, this isn't football where there are partial cap hits, it is the full thing.

27 Mar 2015 22:17:23
Tmoney seriously learn the draft rules and the salary cap rules. Worst they get is 5. And his entire contract must be paid unless they amnesty him and they definitely can't afford that.
