well brandon jennings is out for the year and that sucks as he could be the main reason for us winning lately but augustin is good enough to help but not enough to lead


what could the piston get for a good PG??? (monroe could be the main piece to get a good PG as well as a draft pick)

Philadelphia 76ers

trade #1-3 pick , Luc Mbah Moute and Dario Saric to New York for Carmelo Anthony and Jose Calderon

- with this trade we get the superstar we need , yes, some may think he is overrated but he is still one of the best in the league today , we also get a bonus veteran back-up guard

Miami pick : Select Willey Cauley-Stein (a center to rotate with Embiid and Noel)

offseason signings :
SG : Aaron Afflalo - 3 and D player to play at 2 , reunite with Melo who worked well back in Denver , get him for 3yr/27mil deal

PF : Brandon Bass - with a young frontline of Embiid and Noel , we will need some veteran big to somehow help them grow 2yr/8mil deal

SF : Kyle Singler - some outside shooting off the bench when Melo sits , 4yr/18mil guaranteed

roster 2015

PG : M. Carter-Williams / J. Calderon
SG : A. Afflalo / T. Wroten / K. McDaniels
SF : C. Anthony / K. Singler / R. Covington
PF : N. Noel / B. Bass / J. Grant
CE : J. Embiid / W. Cauley-Stein / H. Sims

- I think next season will be a good chance to hit a playoff spot and as this team develops together , more bright things will come

Brooklyn Nets 2015-2016 Roster

BKN Trades: J. Jack, Bogdanovic, Karasev
CHA Trades: Lance Stephenson, 2015 2nd Round Draft Pick
Reason: To get Stephenson back in BKN, and also to give Hornets some pieces to either trade away or good young rotation players.

BKN-OKC Trade:
BKN Trades: Brook Lopez
OKC Trades: J. Lamb, Perkins, Perry Jones
Reason: BKN clears cap and gets two nice young rotation players and an expiring contract. OKC gets a scoring big they have needed for time now.

BKN-SAC Trade:
BKN Trades: Deron Williams, A. Anderson, BKN 2015 2nd Round Draft Pick and 8 Mil trade exception
SAC Trades: Derrick Williams, D. Collinson, Stauskas, and Future 2nd Round Pick
Reason: To get rid of Deron's Contract and to start rebuilding. SAC becomes a playoff contender

BKN-ATL Trade:
BKN Trades: Joe Johnson and a 14 Mil Trade Exception
ATL Trades: M. Scott, Sefolosha, Payne and Hawks 2015 First Round Pick
Reason: The money does workout. Hawks are under cap by 20 Mil. This will re-unite Joe with his former team, and give BKN some nice young pieces and a good Perimeter-D player.

Draft Trade- BKN-BOS Trade
BKN Trades: Both ATL and BKN 2015 First Round Draft Picks, M. Scott and D. Collinson
BOS Trades: 2015 First Rounder
Reason: Gives BKN a top ten pick and gives BOS a nice rotation player and two first round picks because they are just gathering assets at this point.
This will give BKN about 35 Million to spend. .

Don't Resign:
C. Jefferson
Derrick Williams

7th: D'Angelo Russell
39th: Dakari Johnson

Rajon Rondo
Lamarcus Aldridge
Raymond Felton

2015-16 Roster:
PG- Rondo/Felton/Markel B.
SG- D'Angelo Russell/Lamb/Stauskas
SF- L. Stephenson/P. Jones III/Sefolosha
PF- L. Aldridge/A. Payne
C- M. Plumlee/Dakari Johnson




22 Jan 2015 22:35:32

2015 Draft:
- Kelly Oubre (sign to 4-year, $9,515,427 rookie contract)
- Amida Brimah (sign to 3-year, $2,525,590 rookie contract)

Cartier Martin exercises Player Option

Exercise Caldwell-Pope for Year 4

Re-Sign / Sign:
- Greg Monroe (4-years, $60,000,000)
- Joel Anthony (2-years, $3,000,000)
- Brandon Bass (2-years, $8,000,000)

If the cap room estimates are correct, the Pistons will still have about $4,000,000 in cap space, if they want one more player. No big moves but with the growth of Caldwell-Pope, Monroe, Drummond and Dinwiddie, this can be a definite playoff team in the East. The offseason after this one is when the Pistons will make a push to become contenders, when Drummond and Jennings are set to become free agents.

Depth Chart
PG: Brandon Jennings - D.J. Augustin - Spencer Dinwiddie
SG: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - Jodie Meeks
SF: Kelly Oubre - Caron Butler - Cartier Martin
PF: Greg Monroe - Brandon Bass - Anthony Tolliver
C: Andre Drummond - Amida Brimah - Joel Anthony

Wolves - Celtics - Blazers

Wolves trade Martin, Pekovic

Wolves get Thornton, Wright, Leonard, Blazers 2015 first round pick, Nets 2018 first round pick (from Celtics)

Celtics trade Thornton, Bass, Nets 2018 first round pick

Celtics get Pekovic, Robinson

Blazers trade Wright, Leonard, Robinson, 2015 first round pick

Blazers get Martin, Bass

Wolves move out two players not part of their long term plans for two future first round picks and some expiring contracts.

Celtics take one of their million draft picks and get themselves a bruising physically low post scorer when healthy.

Blazers have yet to make a trade to improve for the playoffs and with Aldridge hurt they need to add a face up power forward. Adding Martin (scoring for a weak bench) and Bass (starter till Aldridge returns and then defensive big off bench) keeps the Blazers right up at the top of the west with the Warriors.




22 Jan 2015 18:48:10
Let's Get Crazy.

Thunder get CJ Watson, Tristan Thompson, Cleanthony Early
***Pass first point guard, active young big with potential, prospect on the wing. Balance the roster plus preserve a little cap space in the summer to tinker if need be.

Knicks get Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Solomon Hill
***Two high-level guys who can be something to build on. They don't mesh as well with Lebron as Wade and Bosh did, but they could mesh well together in New York. Love could opt out and leave, but Irving is locked up for years. Plus, they get Hill who could be a productive player.

Pacers get Jason Smith, Jeremy Lamb, Travis Wear, Brandon Haywood, Nick Collison
***This makes them worse in the interim which is fine with George out. This summer, they'll have some cap space with this deal to make some moves and make a run in the East next season. Some of these guys can be waived, but Lamb could be worth holding on to.

Cavs get Carmelo Anthony, Luis Scola, Reggie Jackson
***Melo and Lebron would be crazy. They could play the 3 and 4 as they both have had experience there in the Olympics. They are friends and already have chemistry. They get Scola who does well in the post off the bench, and Reggie Jackson who has the potential to be a high-level starting point in this league. A playoff lineup of Jackson, Shumpert, Lebron, Melo, and Mosgov is potent offensively and defensively.

It will be fun to think if the Hawks can sign Kawhi Leonard next year

he will be a very true superstar in there


Hawks will more likely get Danny Green.




20 Jan 2015 22:02:38
OKC goes for it all.
Knicks improve defensively and can offer Jackson 5 yrs to keep him
Brooklyn gets good player in return for Lopez and expiring contracts

OKC get Calderon Lopez Andersen Larkins
Brooklyn get Perkins-exp Collison-exp Hardaway
OKC 1st
Knicks get Jackson Lamb Morrow Knicks 2nd

OKC 1st unprotected either 2015 or 2016 depends whether or not Cavs get the 1st.

OKC can get to the finals from any seed


Knicks 2015-16
resign Jackson Acy
trade Melo Early for Stanley Johnson N.Young
trade Okafor for Sixers 4th & 16th pick not 1 or 2nd
sign Milsap and Hibbert Afflalo

Hibbert/Cauley Stein-16th/Robert Upshaw-44th




20 Jan 2015 21:56:39

76ers / Magic

76ers trade: Miamis #1(approx. 12-16), Wroten, and AK47.

Magic trade: Olidipo and Frye

I know sixers aren't in the habit of trading first round picks, but they are in the habit of collecting young assets. Olidipo is a stud, and only 23. Yeah, i'd rather have wiggins, but that's not going to happen. There isn't one shooting guard in the draft I would rate higher then olidipo. Orlando gets back a combo guard who can play(and scores 17 per game at only 21 years old) along side payton, another #1 pick this year, and gets rid of fryes contract(3 years, 24 million guaranteed after this year). Frye could be a good role model for sixers young front court(embiid, noel, saric) while opening things up in the middle as a stretch 4. and sixers use their own #1(1-3) to pick the best player available. Another young asset.
PG: MCW, (possibly Mudiay)P.Jackson
SG: Olidipo, McDaniels, McCrae
SF: Saric, Covington, Grant
PF: Noel, Frye, Saric, (possibly Towns)
C: Embiid, Sims, Noel, (possibly Okafor)



Hell no, Dipo would go top 5 in next years draft.




18 Jan 2015 20:37:30

Andre Drummond #4

Noel #1

Wiggins #1


This team would be crazy good! Got big time scoring and rim protection


No Kevin durant



17 Jan 2015 16:27:13
What is MCW REALLY valued? I mean philly doesn't seem that high on him. Is he worth 2-2nds a 11mil expiring and a player like hardaway jr? Imo he's maybe at 25 in the league at his position. Efficiency wise he's 21.
And that has him in front of rose. Rondo. Parker. Darren williams. Last one maybe.

But with this in mind now. What's he worth. Bc this puts him almost equal all around with Avery Bradley. Are we basing trades on value or potential? I mean eddy curry.

Bargnani. Christian latner. Michael Beasley. Jeans brown. had potential what's MCW value. I kno we use potential in value but your (philly) also looking to draft muiday. So what's his value?




17 Jan 2015 06:29:10
Top 15 Starting Centers:
1. DeMarcus Cousins
2. Marc Gasol
3. Dwight Howard
4. Joakim Noah
5. Al Horford
6. Chris Bosh
7. Al Jefferson
8. Andre Drummond
9. DeAndre Jordan
10. Brook Lopez
11. Roy Hibbert
12. Nikola Vucevic
13. Tyson Chandler
14. Marcin Gortat
15. Jonas Valanciunas


I'll put Vucevic higher, maybe around number 9




16 Jan 2015 17:10:06
Maybe add Larkin to that MCW deal with the 2-2nd




16 Jan 2015 02:54:50
Hearing michael cater williams is on trading block. What would be a fair deal for the reining rookie of the year?? And btw. Does this ever happen. To trade the rookie of the year the very next season??




15 Jan 2015 17:14:53
draft day
Hardaway Calderon Larkin Okafor-1st for
Noel Embiid Thomspon 16th 33rd 35th 60th

Okafor seems more likely to be a star better than Noel and Embiid with Embiid health in question. the triangle offense will be based having 2 bigs. With no guarantee that any quality BIGS will join Knicks this off season this could be good trade for both teams.

Sixers balance team and 2nd east 45 win

Knicks other moves
sign Reggie Jackson & Arron Afflalo
trade Early for W.Chandler

Knicks 55 win with great future
Melo/Chandler/LeBryan Nash-60th
Noel/Cauley Stein-16th/Chris Walker-buy 2nd
Embiid/F Kaminsky-33rd/Dakari Johnson-35th

better defenders around Melo. longer and younger BIGS = Triangle offense. 2 post scorers in Embiid and Kaminsky and Johnson can develop. 2 Enforcers PF in Noel and Stein and can develop Walker. Perimeter stoppers Thanasis Nash Chandler Afflalo and Jackson.




14 Jan 2015 15:30:46
Top 25 power forward:
1. Anthony Davis

20. Derrick Favors
21. Thaddeus Young
22. Ryan Anderson
23. Markieff Morris
24. Carlos Boozer
25. Amare Stoudemire


Draymond Green is in there somewhere


I'd say Markieff to at least top 15


Forgot sullinger

Celtics 4 life

Thats good humor there


I forgot Draymond Green! No. 24 for draymond, no. 25 Carlos boozer




14 Jan 2015 13:12:04
If I'm New York I sign a bunch of players to one year deals this off season. In 2016 pursue Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Yes, they may have some age on them, but they won't need the max contracts. If you fill the correct pieces around them, you could have;
Paul, Calderon, Larkin
Hardaway, Jamal Crawford
Anthony, Early, Novak
Jhalil Okafor, Jason Smith
Howard, Stoudemire
