I like the Blazers deal if the '20 1st is hit, or miss instead of 2 2nds. Blazers are down a few of those already.

16 Apr 2019 11:09:11
Love is not the player he was. Not even close. He's overpaid and will miss a bunch of games every year. If he's part of a championship rotation, fine, but you cannot rely on him anymore.

16 Apr 2019 17:21:24
Maybe I'm just really low on DiVincenzo, but giving up two firsts to unload Turner is way too high of a price to pay. Maybe if Turner had multiple years left, but he'll be an expiring contract.

I think Turner could even be a decent trade chip going into next year as salary filler to take on a big contract with more years.

16 Apr 2019 22:54:33
Isnt just having the Bucks waive G. Hill better for the Bucks in the long run?

17 Apr 2019 09:05:40
They can give Hill the guarantee, and he can agree to stay for less. That's not a bad deal, if his terms are reasonable. Bucks are not paying 19M.

17 Apr 2019 16:47:18
agree with Bmiller, 1 pick is enough to unload Turner.

17 Apr 2019 17:41:50
@Gasupo, One 1st rd pick is to much for give up for Turner. Like Love, he simply isn't worth it.

19 Apr 2019 15:42:09
I believe Milwaukee would pass. Love is no way near a 1st pick. Leave the Cavs. enjoy him. The same with Turner. Overpaid! Not worth the Bucks will be able to keep Giannis, Just by resigning Middleton. Bledsoe is already resigned. Snell, Fraizer, possibly Hill, Divencenco, and also Brogdon will be gone. (Brogdon stated he thinks Milwaukee is to racist of a city (? ) ) No problem, I say, trade him Lakers for B. Ingram.

Wizards / Thunder Trade

Wizards gets
Steven Adams and Dennis Schroder
Plus 3 2nd Round Picks
-4 Wins in the Trade Machine

Thunder gets
Bradley Beal and Ian Mahinmi
No Change on the Trade Machine

Thunder needs Beal . I will miss Adams Interior Defense and the Thunder needs to waive Roberson and get rid of his $10 Million Salary . I'm a bit worry about Paul George's shoulder and that's why I want Beal badly and he is a good friend with Russell Westbrook and I know that this trade will not happen and this is my last one until NBA Draft Day.

Agree1 Disagree16

15 Apr 2019 17:01:06
Not even close for Beal.

15 Apr 2019 17:27:04
Waiving Roberson doesn't remove his salary from the salary cap for next year.

Also OKC doesn't have 3 2nd rounders to trade at the moment (unless you are counting the 2020 from Chicago that will most likely not be conveyed because of protections) . OKC'S 2022-2025 2nd rounders may be conveyed (due to protections) instead of the 2 first rounders that OKC owes, thus making them untradeable at the moment.

This is one of the major reasons OKC is not going to be able to upgrade their roster next year.

15 Apr 2019 18:05:44
Adams has far more value to OKC than he does in a trade. He's not going to improve much more, and he can't be a top 2 offensive option. He doesn't have much/ any value to a rebuilding team, which is what I assume Washington would be if they move Beal.

15 Apr 2019 01:49:43
Wolves get love and cavs get Wiggins plus first pick 2020 top 5 protected.

Agree2 Disagree11

15 Apr 2019 12:04:17
I’d pass on that. Love is helping the Cavs young guys develop. Wiggins just takes the ball out their hands and is a bad locker room presence.

15 Apr 2019 12:27:57
Love is hurt minimum 25 games a year and is a waste of a contract.

15 Apr 2019 19:27:33
The cavs do it for the pick and flip Wiggins two years later.

15 Apr 2019 01:02:02
Crazy scenario for Boston.

Imagine Boston gets the #2 pick vua Sacramento. This jump in the lottery make the Grizzlies pick convey this year as well.

With their 4 picks, Boston drafts Ja Morant, Bol Bol, Edwards from Purdue and Williams from Tennessee.

Let Irving walk this year and Horford next year. Resign Rozier at the same number as Smart. Tell New Orleans to pound sand about trading for AD.

Agree2 Disagree10

15 Apr 2019 10:09:10
Yup, that's crazy. Problem is, Ainge isn't crazy. He's pretty damned smart and he wants AD. He will probably get AD.
The other issue I have with this, is they are a championship driven team. They could or would not have 4 rookies on that team. If they were a lottery team, I might see This, but they are not.
Why would they rebuild now, when they could be close to winning #18?

15 Apr 2019 15:01:05
I don't think Ainge would draft Bol, unless it was too good to pass up. Proven players are still worth more than draft picks. ZW is garnering hype, and maybe he is the next James, but that's at least a few seasons away, AD is gift wrapped, ready to go.

15 Apr 2019 15:02:09
it wouldn't be so much a rebuild as a retool, and I've thought about this as well. I like AD a lot, but it really depends on how much they want for him and if they think he will actually stick around.

Either way, the trade for AD and the decision on Kyrie can't happen until after the draft, and I really doubt that NO would want anyone other than Morant at #2, so you have time to think. Ja could easily be the best player to come out of this draft, and with him already in tow, they have a lot of bargaining power on what else goes to NO. If Griffin is stubborn on wanting too much, DA should feel comfortable moving forward.

The ideal would be if Memphis' pick wound up at 4. That would give them someone worthwhile, but probably not an immediate impact like the top two or three guys should have. I don't think I would take Bol at 9 anyway. I'm looking at him with that Clippers pick being a good gamble, but 9 is a bit too high for my taste.

15 Apr 2019 15:03:13
Many reasons why JoeB, including that they do not look like a serious Championship contender right now, don’t have any control whether Kyrie comes back or not, and understand that with no Kyrie, AD is unlikely to re-sign there after next season.

I will give Ainge something, he is smart. If he goes into this offseason with the feeling that Kyrie could walk, and can’t close an AD deal that possibly will convince Irving to stay, I could see a mini reset.

15 Apr 2019 18:24:05
The best part is that they have the assets to keep retooling as is. They've actually played very well when Kyrie sits, despite him being their most talented player. That could just be an anomaly, but it does go to show the talent on the rest of the roster. If they have the opportunity to bring in a Morant, they might see that as being just as good, and then they don't have to deal with the Kyrie headaches that seem to follow him around.

Even if they don't bring in that top pick, they might decide they feel fine moving forward with Rozier and paying the man. Either way, Kyrie/ AD or the rest of the young pieces they currently have, they should have a pretty lengthy championship window. It'll be very interesting to see what direction Danny goes.

15 Apr 2019 19:37:56
I was also thinking a "retooled" Celtics roster will still be competitve against a Raptors team minus Kwahi, a 76ers team minus one of their FAs and a limited Embiid, and a Milwaukee team that has its own FAs to resign and limited financial market.

15 Apr 2019 21:18:13
Bledsoe opted for the most friendly contract possible. The Bucks are sitting pretty going into next season. Even if they lose 2 players they would like to keep.

15 Apr 2019 00:43:13
Hawks get - Jrue Holiday

- perfect fit next to Trae

Pelicans get - Dal pick, Bazemore and Len

- Gets a top 10 pick and future cap space

Hawks draft Hunter
Pelicans draft White and Bol Bol


Bol Bol

Agree6 Disagree7

15 Apr 2019 05:24:22
Holiday is locked up on a long term deal, the pelicans would want more than Bazemore. ATL should draft if it's 6 or higher, there's good players for their Young team.

15 Apr 2019 05:50:25
Holiday worth more yhan that package.

15 Apr 2019 14:38:17
If they end up trading Davis, the Holiday will be moved as well. Just not convinced he is "perfect" next to Trae.

15 Apr 2019 14:48:22
Damn, this is that time of the year when stars start getting traded for future cap space on here isn’t it?

15 Apr 2019 17:35:59
I wouldn’t call Holiday a star.

15 Apr 2019 19:42:22
Holiday was selected by the players as the most underrated player in the league. Therefore, his actual value is probably higher than most feel it is.

Holiday is in that Mike Conley, CJ McCollum, Devin Booker category of "stars"

16 Apr 2019 00:48:59
Holiday better than those guys.

14 Apr 2019 06:16:13
Bulls win the lottery, keep ZW


'20 1st

14 Apr 2019 20:05:11
Get out of here bulls won the trade by a landslide.

14 Apr 2019 01:36:53
Jazz get SmithJr
Clippers get Crowder Knox
Knicks get Lou-Will


Galinari for Whiteside

Why are you keeping Mudiay and moving Irving to the 2? Mudiay needs to go.

14 Apr 2019 16:38:58
Ntilikina/ Mudiay/ Allen
Irving/ Lou-Will/ Trier
Durant/ Dawkins-55/ Dotson
Zion/ Vonleh/ Ellenson
Jordan/ Robinson/ Kornet

Irving/ Mudiay/ Allen
lou-Will/ Trier/ Ntilikina
Durant/ Dawkins-55/ Dotson
Zion/ Vonleh/ Ellenson
Jordan/ Robinson/ Kornet

Flexibility is key. Irving can't be trusted to play 82 games over the next 4 yrs unless we have 3 other pg. With 2 other PGs big enough to defend SGs. Irving was at his best as a wing with Cleveland and lebron point forward.

13 Apr 2019 21:29:41
Possible draft day trades/offseason trades the Hawks could make in the 2019 offseason with Kent Bazemore as their base

1) Hawks receive Timofey Mozgov with the possiblity to get a 2020 1st rounder (lottery protected) or 2020 & 2021 2nd rounders
Magic receive Kent Bazemore

2) Hawks receive Bismack Biyombo with the possibility to get a 2020 1st rounder (lottery protected) or the 2020 NYK 2nd rounder & 2021 BRK 2nd
Hornets receive Kent Bazemore

3) Hawks receive Allen Crabbe with the possibility to get 2019 DEN 1st draft night or 2020 IND 2nd & 2020 DEN 2nd rounders (possibility to add TOR 2021 to the other two 2nds since they will most likely be late second round)
Nets receive Kent Bazemore

4) Hawks receive Evan Turner with the possibility to get 2020 1st (top 20 protected year 1 then lottery protected for year 2 then convoys to 2 seconds) or 2021 & 2024 2nd round picks (also the same to picks for the first round that doesn't convoy)
Blazers receive Kent Bazemore
(most plausible ^)

Agree1 Disagree12

14 Apr 2019 03:16:24
Soooo. You basically believe that Bazemore is worth a cheaper expiring contract and 2 second round picks?

Sorry. Not seeing the value. MAYBE at the trade deadline, but I wouldn't count on it at that price.

13 Apr 2019 21:02:04
Possible 2019 offseason moves that the Hawks could make with Miles Plumlee at their base.

1) Hawks receive Ian Mahinmi and a 2024 2nd round pick (protection 31-44 if falls in protected range then obligation is extinguished)
Wizards receives Miles Plumlee

Pros Hawks receive a second rounder
Pros Wiz receive some cap relief

2) Hawks receive Timofey Mozgov, a 2020 2nd rounder, (possibility to add a protetcted (31-44) 2021 2nd with protection since Mozgov was hurt all last
Magic receive Miles Plumlee

Pros Hawks receive a second rounder
Pros Magic receive cap relief

3) Hawks receive Ryan Anderson and a 2022 2nd rounder
Heat receive Miles Plumlee

Pros Hawks receive a second rounder
Pros Heat receive much needed cap relief and help avoid the luxury tax

Coaching change hires

Cavs-Jordi Fernandez
Lakers-Monty Williams
Kings-David Vanterpool
Grizzlies-Nate Tibbetts

Agree0 Disagree5

13 Apr 2019 21:38:31
Nope. Kings going with Luke Walton.

14 Apr 2019 04:31:31
Lakers-M. Williams, L. Hollins, if they hire Lue they are a joke.
Cavs-Vanterpool, cavs are not strangers to blazer personnel
Kings-Walton (already decided)
Grizzlies-SVG, Messina, Blatt, Vogel, all are solid steady-eddie type coaches. Hard to go wrong.

15 Apr 2019 13:16:26
The Lakers are a joke, but that's no different than an other team LeBron has been on. He wants to be the coach, and rarely cares what anyone on the sideline wearing a suit has to say. They all allow him to dictate decisions, even Riley to an extent. Spoelstra turned out to be a good choice, but you really only saw that after James went back to Cleveland.

That said, I'm really hoping that Walton gets those kids in Sacramento playing even better than this year. I would love to see that become a rivalry again and get a playoff matchup.

15 Apr 2019 19:46:05
Is it the Lakers are a dumpster fire?

Is it the Kings are becoming somewhat relevant after years in the toilet?

Or is it a combination of both?
