As a Kings homer, I would want the Oubre signing done before trading Barnes and I would want a little bit more from Miami for Whiteside (maybe their 2022 2nd rounder or a 2020 1st round draft pick swap) .

CHI/NOLA

CHI get Davis & Holiday

NOLA get Porter Jr, Markannen, 2019 1st round pick, Kris Dunn, 2021 1st round pick & 2 2nd round picks

Bulls get their hometown boy and the guard rumored that they want. For Davis, east could be an easier battle and he goes home. Maybe try to lure some FA and Bulls is not a bad destination

This really isn't such a bad offer. I'm surprised with all of the downvotes.

Sign Melo? Really.

Leonard hasn’t shown any interest in playing for the Lakers, and is likely to land with the Clips if he ends up in LaLa Land.

That package won’t get you AD. Zion is a key piece, but what has Ball shown you that makes you believe he has real Trade value? Ingram didn’t make it to 60 games for the second consecutive year, and really didn’t improve from year 2 to year 3. It’s going to take a couple of additional young assets and additional picks for the Pels to consider a Lakers package.

22 Apr 2019 03:39:13
So Zion, Ingram and ball isn't enough? Tatum, Smart, Brown and picks better?

22 Apr 2019 11:25:15
Zion should do it alone for a one year rental.

I see adds talking about Leonard to clippers like George to Lakers but I never heard Leonard say I want clippers. I know him joining James would be a crazy duel and could win multiple championships especially if Durant go to ny. Unless butler Irving or Durant joining Leonard in clippers i don't see y he would go there.

UTA/CLE

UTA get Kevin Love

CLE get Derrick Favors, Dante Exum, 1st round pick 2019

UTA signs KCP 1yr/8mil

UTA should do some moves to add some scorers

Pg Rubio/Neto
Sg Mitchell/KCP
Sf Ingles/Korver
Pf Love/Oneale
Ce Gobert

Agree11 Disagree4

21 Apr 2019 21:28:12
UTA should get a #2, or #1 if they are going to spend that kind of money. Mitchell is having a hard time being a #1 in the playoffs. The trade is fair value, but Utah getting older, and a pretty wide open offseason cap-wise to retool a bit is my hesitancy. They have Grayson Allen, KCP maybe, for a little less.

22 Apr 2019 01:43:19
Problem is FA’s have not shown a willingness to sign in Utah. If they want to improve their roster, a deal like this is how it happens.

22 Apr 2019 03:31:22
Randle is my choice to overpay. Not a top tier FA, team is retooling in NO, jazz have something good going, right age, overpaid would be cheaper than love. Fits with Ingles, Gobert.

21 Apr 2019 17:08:26
LAL/DET

LAL get Blake Griffin

DET get Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram & 2nd round pick

Agree2 Disagree12

21 Apr 2019 17:30:58
The value definitely works, I’m just not sure about Blake’s fit with Lebron. Then again, the Lakers FO knows nothing about putting together players that compliment each other, spit could definitely happen. Fair deal.

21 Apr 2019 17:58:43
They’re not a perfect fit, but they both can do a little of everything. I don’t think you have to worry that it just doesn’t work. The only concerns outside of injury stuff is how much is Blake sacrificing to Lebron. He isn’t going to get as many opportunities with the ball in his hands.

21 Apr 2019 18:18:26
The big issue is defense, they both need a wing more fleet of foot and switch-able next to them.

21 Apr 2019 10:22:13
Thunder sends Jerami Grant

Lakers send Kyle Kuzma

Lakers would benefit from a long, springy player like Grant who brings real shot blocking and switch-ability, a defense first 4 next to an offense only player in LBJ. Grant is a decent floor spacer in his own right, very capable from the corner. While it’s not a rookie deal, Grant’s deal does look to be a fantastic value. This would be a flexible piece to put with whatever bigger plans the Lakers have.

Thunder could really use the shooting and a bit of extra play making that Kuzma could bring. The loss on defense, while essential to OKC’s game, could be negated by a potential return of Roberson in 20. It would also be nice to shed a bit of cap due to the expensive payroll okc has.

Agree1 Disagree13

21 Apr 2019 14:13:13
I'd keep Kuzma. Salary.

21 Apr 2019 16:51:13
Kuzma>>>>>>>Grant.

21 Apr 2019 17:23:42
I think the take of Kuzma>Grant is a little Laker-centric. Overrating the blue-bloods prospects.

21 Apr 2019 20:00:14
I’m a Blazer fan, so I hate the Lakers. I also hate OKC. And it’s not even a conversation, Kuzma is way better.

22 Apr 2019 01:47:06
Don’t know that I agree with the take that Kuz is WAY better than Grant. Grant shot the 3 at a much clip (39% vs. 33%), which the Lakers need. He’s also a considerably better defensive player.

If the Lakers were one piece away from real contention, I may consider this. Right now, I would say no.

21 Apr 2019 08:21:21
Pistons blow it up and tank plan

Pistons send Blake Griffin
Twolves send Wiggins, Saric, Okogie, and 3 first round picks.

So it may seem like a lot for the Wolves to pay, but Wiggins is a net zero at best. So it’s essentially a Saric, Okogie, and 3 picks. Compare that too the last Blake deal: Tobias Harris (who just went for 2 first rounder plus Landry Shamet), Avery Bradley, Boban, and a first. Yes, Blake is another year older, but I was never more impressed with his game than this year, his ball handling and shooting were incredible. Blake’s also a tremendous fit next to KAT due to the spacing KAT provides.

Pistons get a great tank commander in Wiggins who hopefully could develop himself as the #1 option on a rubbish team. Okogie and Saric are young quality pieces and picks are always great.

Trade 2
Pistons send Andre Drummond to Kings
Kings send Harrison Barnes to the Hornets
Hornets send Nic Batum and Malik Monk to Pistons

Kings also send 2 2019 second round picks to Detroit. (Kings currently have 4 I believe) .

Kings desperately need rebounding and Drummond brings all of that, plus he’s really mobile for running with Fox. Yes it’s a bad contract but they already have a bad contract on the books with Barnes who may be the main culprit for the collapse this year as he was awful and may not be popular with the team. In fact this move could save the Kings money if it prevents them from resigning Cauley-Stein. Drummond’s contract lines up nicely with Giles’ timeline.

Batum might be the worst contract in league, they get off of 2 additional years of big money and they get a productive big wing defender as MKG hits the market. You have to pay for the move by moving Monk, but he keeps under achieving, he doesn’t fit with Kemba, and that Batum contract is really really bad.

Piston start the tank. They go from no shooting to a ton of young options in the backcourt and a theoretical difference maker on the Wing. That’s a good versatile corps to go through a tank with, drafting some difference making front court players in 20 would could get the Pistons back to relevancey quickly. Maybe not these deals, but this kind of scenario is kind of likely as the Pistons new FO is super innovative and driven by analytics, so tanking may be on the table.

Trade 3.
Pistons send Reggie Jackson
Heat send Hassan Whiteside

Crap for crap, both deals expire at the same time. Heat will want to do it just because Jackson is cheaper on an annoyingly expedite yet bad Heat roster and it can clear a bit of a log jam at Center. Pistons need to get Reggie and his attitude out, plus it’ll force the young backcourt players to play and I mean someone has to play in the front court.

Pistons young corps: Luke Kennard, Malik Monk, Josh Okogie, Andrew Wiggins.

Agree1 Disagree10

21 Apr 2019 13:42:23
Blake isn't worth one first and the players you want.

21 Apr 2019 16:43:06
Kings want no part of Drummond.

21 Apr 2019 17:17:21
Drummond needs to go on diet especially as he gets older, I question his fitness for a full season. You don't want hear that when you making 25 mil per season.

21 Apr 2019 17:20:15
Right @Shiller41, I forgot how easy it is to find All-NBA forwards, dime-a-dozen / s.

21 Apr 2019 07:40:11
Who says no first?

76ers send Joel Embiid

Timberwolves send KAT

It’s got to be the Wolves that say no due to Embiid injury concerns, right? But does that trump that Embiid is the better player right now? How much do you consider that the Wolves aren’t ready to compete for the West with the current roster and Embiid is more win now. What other move could the Wolves make to get more win now.

I think the 6ers would take the deal even if they knew Embiid was healthy just based on KAT’s fit with Simmons. But he’s having injury scares so to get the deal done you’d probably have to include another asset and could you really justify giving up an additional asset AND the better player. Also, you basically can’t keep Butler then, him and KAT are done. Too much to keep the deal from happening?

Agree1 Disagree4

21 Apr 2019 13:27:42
Um, no from Minnesota.

Plus, Embiid is quickly becoming one of the most hated players in the NBA.

21 Apr 2019 13:43:24
Wolves say no. Wiggins for embild best offer.

21 Apr 2019 17:22:44
Embiid may not last long, but at his best he is better KAT and wiggens combined. Neither will draw free agents. Ask butler he will tell you. Wolves fans should know having 1 of the best trash talkers in KG, he was still respected.

22 Apr 2019 01:51:28
I would agree, pure talent Embiid is better. The injuries and attitude is what makes him questionable. Even with the attitude, if you could pencil him in for 70+ games each season, I take him over KAT.

That said, 64 games this season is Embiid’s high water mark, while KAT has missed five total games in four years.

1. You can't trade free agents.

2. If Phoenix wants Rozier, they can offer him enough money were it would be difficult for Boston to match.

21 Apr 2019 14:26:50
You can trade restricted FA’s at the draft, but agree that Phoenix is not giving up anything to get a guy that they have the dollars to sign.

21 Apr 2019 14:46:21
I think Boston would match rozier and trade later.

21 Apr 2019 16:50:40
How can they trade a restricted free agent at the draft? The draft is before free agency, so he’d still be unsigned. You can’t S&T a RFA until July 1.
