Celtics - Grizzlies

Celtics receive Tayshaun Prince, Jordan Adams, top 12 protected 2016 first round pick.

Grizzlies receive Jeff Green

Celtics fresh off trading Rondo keep on acquiring first round picks by shipping off Green for an expiring contract (Prince), the Grizzlies first round selection in 2014 draft (Adams), and the first round pick in 2016 to go along with their own pick and the Nets.

Grizzlies seeing the Mavericks just adding Rondo add Green to provide more scoring and shooting from the small forward spot. A spot that clearly needs upgraded over Prince and out of position Tony Allen.

Idk who it was in here but someone posted the exact Dallas Boston trade months ago numerous times and we all didn't believe it. But it is the exact deal he predicted minus Dwight Powell

Rondo for Wright, Nelson, Crowder, and two draft picks

If the Warriors end up with this roster before the playoffs

S. Curry / S. Livingston
K. Thompson / R. Allen / L. Barbosa
H. Barnes / A. Iguodala / B. Rush
D. Green / D. Lee / M. Speights
A. Bogut / E. Okafor / F. Ezeli

they got one hand at the trophy

Houston Minnesota

Rockets get Thad Young and Mo Williams

T-wolves get Clint Capela, I. Canaan and the protected 1st from New Orleans
Trade exemption makes this deal work

would Duncan really have to retire for gasol to join the spurs?

Portland has the most perfectly balanced starting roster in the NBA today

D. Lillard - dynamic PG who can fill up every stats
W. Matthews - 3 and D SG perfect fit for Lillard
N. Batum - a defensive minded player who can give decent offensive numbers , a star stopper maybe
L. Aldridge - the superstar and leader of the team
R. Lopez - the perfect compliment to LA , a defensive minded center

- LA and Lillard are the obvoius go to guys but the other 3 especially Matthews can also be a big factor at crucial stretch

Blazers should find ways to develop their bench even more and they are good as a championship contender

espn33


They remind me of the 96 Sonics

C. Ervin Johnson
PF. Shawn Kemp
SF. Detlef Schrempf
SG. Hersey Hawkins
Pg. Gary Payton

i don't know but Warriors is so Good just can't feel that they can win it all. they lack of something that I can't determine. Warriorsalltheway do you have any idea?

espn33


It's hard to nitpick at anything because they're 18-2, and there aren't any major problems that I see. But Iggy is obviously not his usual self, but he will eventually adapt to his role off the bench. Also when the 3s aren't falling it would be good to have a low post scorer other than speights, so it will help to get lee back. They also lack interior defense behind bogut, which is why I support a trade centered around Lee for KG. They are playing beautiful basketball though and I expect it to continue

So basically Dallas gets Rondo for nothing. This trade is horrible

Boston Celtics need a rim protector. If they had a big man who can defend well in the post, they would probably be a playoff team in the east.

It's funny to look at the Thunders stats since so many players have only played a few games


Kevin Durant- 27.0 ppg
Russell Westbrook- 23.3 ppg
Reggie Jackson- 19.3 ppg
Serge Ibaka- 15.4 ppg
Perry Jones- 15.0 ppg

So far this draft class is filled up with a bunch of Derricks Williams, Evan Turners, Thomas Robinsons, and Eric Maynors

jbbaby


How so?

The NBA is so deep at PG right now.

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


It's insane. 25 teams have starting point guards that play a near all star level. and that doesn't count great back ups like Reggie Jackson, Avery Bradley, and Isaiah Thomas

jbbaby


Avery Bradley is a starting shooting guard

Interesting question. If the timberwolves were to get the 2nd worst record in the league ( obviously the 76ers would be the worst an I highly doubt the wolves will do that bad), and let's say the get lucky and get the #1 pick. Who do you think they would take? Here are the top options


1. Emmanuel Mudiay PG China: Mudiay seems like a stud that could be a very good point guard. The wolves to have Rubio who (when playing) looks improved and good so I don't think they would take him

2. Jahil Okafor C Duke: Okafor has all the post moves and has been dominating every game. He has a nice jumper and play pretty good defense, the wolves of have Pek who I think they could get rid of and they have Dieng who has shown flashes but hasn't look consistent

3. Karl Towns Jr PF/C Kentucky: towns is a very talented offensive player and has the ability to be a good shot blocker. The wolves have at the PF spot Thad young but he will become a FA after this year.

Who would you pick? Comment please (and I know there are more amazing players that could go) who would the twolves pick?

Tmoney


Trade it

NBA


I think they draft Towns just because they seem committed to Dieng and maybe Okafor could play next to him but idk. They wouldn't draft Mudiay because they have so many wings and a PG of the future in Rubio, with a solid backup PG/SG in Lavine

joeyconger5


Towns .

Early prediction for NBA awards:
MVP: LeBron James
DPOY: Anthony Davis

;P

Nba-gmaster


Mvp: marc gasol
dpoy: anthony davis
roy: jabari parker
coy: kerr
mip: reggie jackson
6th: I like the lou will call

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


MVP : LeBron James
DPOY : Anthony Davis
ROY : Jabari Parker
COY : David Joerger
MIP : Jimmy Butler
6th : Lou Williams

espn33


So far:

MVP- Anthony Davis, Stephen Curry, or Lebron James

DPOY- Anthony Davis, Andrew Bogut, or Serge Ibaka

ROY- Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins, or Nerlens Noel

COY- Steve Kerr, Dwayne Casey, or David Joerger

MIP- Jimmy Butler, Anthony Davis, or Klay Thompson

6th Man- Jamal Crawford, Lou Williams, or Mareese Speights

Warriorsalltheway


^LOL you had to fit a Warrior in everywhere

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


All of its true though that's why they're so good

Warriorsalltheway


Im very sure
LeBron wins SEASONS MVP. Avg 25+ppg and 5+ each in reb and ast.

Davis wins Defensive POY. Top 5 in shot blocks and steals.

Parker wins Rookie of the year
Kerr wins coach of the year

Klay could snag MIP and Thomas for 6th man

Nba-gmaster


Jimmy Butler all over Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis all over Curry as long as Pelicans could make playoffs (doubt)

USA


@warriorsalltheway do you really think speights is in the top 3 for 6th man an bogut top 3 for defensive player of the year come on!

Celtics 4 life


Top 3 6th man are J. Crawford, L. Williams and I. Thomas

top 3 defense are A. Davis, M. Gasol, J. Noah

espn33


Look at the numbers. Speights has the 2nd highest PER in the league and bogut is anchoring the #1 rated defense in the league. Look at the numbers of the warriors defense when bogut is on the floor compared to when he's not. Bleacher report has an article on who they would currently choose for end of year awards. They have Bogut as DPOY and Speights in the top 3 for 6th man. I know bleacher report isn't made up of experts, but the article has the numbers to back them up.

Does anybody think if the Cavs continue to struggle that there's a chance they could explore Irving or Love trades?

NBA


Love maybe. Not Irving

I challenge someone to make a believable Monta Ellis trade. I am convinced that it is impossible

jbbaby


Exactly ...

jbbaby


Ellis to Houston for Montejunas and a 1st

joeyconger5


They have the most efficient offense in the nba right now why would they trade him?

Call me crazy but part of me kinda wishes that my Thunder would've traded James Harden for Klay Thompson instead of Jeremy Lamb

jbbaby


Was that an option?

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


That was one of them and the other one was Bradley Beal and the Wizards 2013 1st round pick.

jbbaby


They had the choice between Kevin Martin, Bradley Beal, & Klay Thompson? and they chose Kevin Martin??

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


Maybe during that period, they Kevin Martin will help them more because he is a veteran then it turned to be a disaster

Wizards should have been
Wall
Harden
Pierce
Nene
Gortat

Warriros should have been
Curry
Harden
Barnes
Lee
Bogut

USA


Why would we call you crazy? They would obviously do that now

Warriorsalltheway


U have to understand that at the time Beal and Lamb were draft picks that hadn't played yet. they figured their choices were Beal and 1 future 1st. or Lamb, Kevin Martin, and 3 future 1sts (Adams, McGary, and Dallas 2016 1st)

jbbaby


I'm not saying thompson is better than harden but I think that Klay fits the Warriors better. Harden demands the ball too much, and is horrible at defense, which would definitely hurt the warriors

I may be in the minority, but as an OKC fan, I feel like it's time to explore Reggie Jackson trades. He holds big value now and could fetch a few complimentary peices. Any potential trades worth looking at?

ChurchPugh


I agree with this

espn33


I agree with this as an OKC fan. Also thought we should've traded Jeremy Lamb in the offseason while he still had value. I don't think he has any now
