That trade is terrible for the Cavs. They aren't adding depth, Love can do on his own what Chandler and Faried do, and they lose their best perimeter defender. They would need to get way more in that trade.

I am a HUGE Knicks fan but I am so tired of the self-inflicted wounds. Noah.4 years? Melo could have been a franchise player that would have transitioned into KP being the franchise player. Now they are both unhappy because of the Phil Jackson BS. Dolan has always proven himself to be an idiot. I mean how much longer can I justify even following this travesty of a team? The early 90s were great even though we didn't win a title. Now it just sucks to even admit you follow them. Every hopeful element that arises gets squashed by EGO. Pathetic excuse for a franchise at the current moment.

Porzingis is gone.
How can the Knicks bring him back now?

Easy. He has 0 other options. Unless he is willing to retire, what leverage does he have?

Not a trade, but I just wanted to gauge how happy people would be if the dominoes all fell correctly and Ball wound up not getting picked by the Lakers, falling to Orlando or Minny later on. He's already been recruiting LeBron to a team he's not even on.

Around NBA teams:
If I were the Cavs or Celtics, i rather have Butler than George..

Butler is more upgrade on defense and athletic scorer
George maybe athletic but not much like Butler and better shooter

Butler has more years left in his contract than George whose contract will be expired next year..

----------------------------------------------------------
I don't think bulls will get far in the playoffs because Rondo and Wade are foes since the Celtics-Heat Big 3 era.. Rondo and Wade get their money then will ask to be waive so they can go to better teams..

----------------------------------------------------------
About LeBron, Butler or no Butler, George or no George, the cavs need to improve defense.. If ever they want a trade, Butler is a better choice, if LeBron fail to get the championship then go to LA just like the rumors says and have the banana boat roster or with russ and george, Irving and Butler will be the new faces of Cavs..

----------------------------------------------------------
On Spurs, it will be the right choice to trade Aldridge and Green to clear some capspace, Chris Paul is the ideal PG for this franchise, and they could get better and cheaper big men at free agency..

----------------------------------------------------------
Warriors will focus on retaining their Big 4 players, after that, they will focus on signing veterans for minimum wage..

----------------------------------------------------------
Lakers should they trade the number 2 pick?? I would say yes with those picks and young players.. they need to get Russ and George this year so they could attract and sign LeBron next yr.. but if they going to use this years pick, take Jackson a much low risk to be a bust, then Knicks wanted to trade porzingis to a top 4 pick, suns could draft ball and trade to knicks..

----------------------------------------------------------
For the other LA team (Clippers), major changes need to happen trade Griffin and Jordan, some capspace next year, "voila", banana boat team assemble.. paul to wade to melo and to lebron!!

----------------------------------------------------------
CP3 stay, CP3 to Spurs, CP3 the return (pelicans), this and that, CP3 is not a bad fit for the Pelicans, with Davis and Cousins, a better version of Grffin and Jordan

----------------------------------------------------------
Celtics pride to retain the pick is a good thing, getting Hayward or Butler would make them contenders again for East finals..

----------------------------------------------------------
Sixers trust the process probably will be a success, Fultz, Simmons and Embiid.. same with the T-wolves, Rose reuniting with coach thibbs.. I will definitely watch these two young teams..

----------------------------------------------------------
Rockets are finding a better point guard and a scoring big man..
Thunder, I hope they could get Griffin(oklahoma native) or Love(russ ucla teammate) to pair with westbrook..

----------------------------------------------------------
Nets and Suns will probably at the bottom 5 next season, add the Magic and Kings too..

----------------------------------------------------------
Raptors number one priority is finding a new point guard..
Knicks on rebuilding process, what they could get from Melo and Porzingis plus how to get rid Noah..
Bucks still finding a perfect fit starting center, love to see greek freek again in the playoffs..
Pistons and Pacers wants to trade their MVP players.. Drummond and George..
Hawks and Hornets trading players but still on the same level of being a contender team or not..
Heat have some capspace to pair with whiteside, winslow and dragic, eyeing Hayward in the market..
Wizards coming out short in the nba playoffs is only a beginning for them, fun to watch Wall and Beal..

----------------------------------------------------------
Dallas team, not so much hype for this team and will be the last year of Dirk
Memphis, Gasol brothers could possibly happen..
Nuggets, I like the teams developtment, Should they let Gallinari go?? I would say YES and please trade Faried too..
Jazz, same with Nuggets, should they let Hayward go?? But i would say NO instead trade Favors please..
Blazers, Lillard wants out if they could not get a helpful teammates except for McCollum..


I forbid a Warriors vs Cavaliers part 4.. its not fun to watch NBA anymore..

For the Celtics, I agree that Butler makes more sense. They have the assets to go get him and they're a team that is still young and still developing. Butler would be much less risky since he doesn't have a preferred destination and is signed for multiple years. He would probably be their best player and could place players around him that complement him.

The Cavs would be better off going after George. It's risky, but they need to match up better against the Warriors and they don't have a ton of options to be able to do it. The position the Pacers are in would make him cheaper. They're similar players. They can both do a little of everything, can play the 2 or 3, and the 4 in small ball line ups. Butler is a little more athletic and a slightly better passer. George is longer, much better shooter, and has come up big in the clutch far more often than Butler (with more opportunities) . Saying one is a better defender is splitting hairs. Their defense is second only to Leonard and a motivated Lebron for wing players. The Cavs need more lengthy wings to guard Durant and Lebron and Kyrie need as many shooters as they can get. That in combination with the price and clutch performances makes me think they would be better off going with George.

like it but if i'm the suns i'm not giving my 4 pick to get love.

So Cavs trade Love for Jordan Crawford. in what fantasy?

Although Wade opted in, I'd still trade Butler and allow Wade to recruit. Thoughts....

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 18:31:18
Is there anything to recruit to once Butler is gone? Wade is about done, who knows what you're going to get out of Rondo, and the rest of the team is pretty bad. Unless they can pull an amazing haul for Butler, they're looking at a 4 or 5 year rebuild.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 21:44:30
Who did Wade have to recruit with in 09??

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Jun 2017 23:33:04
He was a top 5 player at the time. He's 2 or 3 years away from retiring and may not even be a starting level player next year.

Agree4 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 02:22:09
Wade isn't recruiting anyone at this stage of his career. If Bulls want to attract FA they should keep Butler end of story. They haven't been able to successfully build around Butler past few years (Rondo and Wade were awful fits with him) . I think the issue with Bulls is in the front office. Dealing Butler doesn't really help that but it buys you more time since if they got say #3 pick and next years Brooklyn pick those guys would likely still be around when they finally make front office changes where Butler is likely gone in two years.

Sf: Wiggins, Sefelosha
Pf: Porzingis, Gibson, Bjelica
C: Towns, Noah, Aldrich

Agree8 Disagree3

21 Jun 2017 21:17:03
No way the Celtics trade away Bradley and a second and only get Deing back. Maybe if we got a 1st round pick but Bradley alone would be to much for Dieng. The TWolves would be dumb to do this because they only need a PF but they shouldn't trade some of their valuable assets for Porzingus. This deal doesn't help anyone.

Agree0 Disagree2

22 Jun 2017 02:38:02
Celtics would be wise to deal Bradley because he is an expiring contract due a large pay raise next year when Celtics will also need to pay IT and Smart. Dealing him for Dieng only makes sense if Celtics don't want to make a run at Hayward (I think they would be foolish not to) since he makes a fair bit more than Bradley and Celtics hardly have enough cap space to give Hayward the max as is. If they opted for Butler instead Dieng wouldn't be a bad option as a youngish, defensive big who is a better rebounder than anyone they have and signed long-term to a reasonable contract.

I completely disagree with CS13 on Twolves getting Porzingis. Porzingis is probably 2nd best prospect in the NBA to KAT. Having both on the same team would be unfair given their size, skill, and athleticism. Both need to improve defensively but they have the physical tools in place to be great on that end and I have faith in Thibs. Twolves are not giving up too much as Porzingis is already a pretty good player on a cheap contract and only 21 and Twolves would still have Dunn, LaVine, Wiggins and KAT. That would be a killer lineup and although Dunn may not be ready they have plenty of cap space to go sign Drose or somebody for 2 years to hold them over. Affording that team long term would be difficult (a la Thunder a few years ago) but they could easily trade anyone of those guys in a few years and get a solid return from a team with a bunch of assets looking for a higher caliber player. Twolves already have a bright future but adding Porzingis would make it even brighter.

I don't like Knicks dealing Porzingis and don't think this trade makes them any better. Rubio and Bradley are solid players but Bradley will in a year take all that money you saved by getting rid of Noah and #7 and #8 picks likely don't match their timeline. You end up trading a superstar and aren't highly likely to get one with #7 (certainly not caliber of Porzingis) . Don't think it makes Knicks considerably better in short term (maybe they make playoffs in they keep Melo) but severely hurts them in long-term since they won't have a cornerstone like Porzingis to build around and attract talent for them.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 02:38:04
not a chance Porzingis is worth 2 fairly high 1st rd picks and Rubio and Dieng and the absorption of Noah's huge contract.

As much as I'm a fan of Lowry I say trade him.

Bring in a proven Sf that is young and can grow. Joesph and Wright will be the future pg in Toronto and we did well without Lowry.

Sign and trade Lowry for a young player and draft pick.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 15:32:52
A sign and trade all depends on Lowry. I doubt anyone will be willing to give him the super max. Especially if they have to give up assets to give it to him. So it would all depend on a capped out team signing Lowry. I don't see a ton of interested from capped out teams looking at him.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 15:38:51
Prob should have done that when you had any leverage. No one is doing a sign and trade. Too old for that length and he isn't worth it.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 02:39:03
Raptors best bet would be to sign Lowry since they aren't going to get much back for him in a sign and trade (teams never do) .

Agree0 Disagree0
