All of these posts with Pistons and Thunder trades are garbage. Ibaka is going nowhere and the Pistons don't want Perkins. Stop sending Detroit Garbage for Monroe it isn't going to happen SVG is not going to accpet garbage, other wise Smith would be a King right now instead of a Piston.
The only team that has the cap room and the assets to pull of a trade with Detroit for Monroe and has been connected to Monroe is Atlanta.
But even Atlanta doesn't have the true asset Detroit is looking for and that is a true wing/SF.
The Suns have Green and Bledsoe but Bledsoe is often injured and Green is okay but not enough for Monroe. Green for Smith would work for the Pistons nor sure how the suns feel about it.
At the end of the day a trade to the Knicks is the best deal to be made for the Pistons. Smith and Bynum to the Knicks for Early and Dalembert.
Detroit loved Early in the Draft and likes what he brings to the table as the SF and Dalembert is a defensive presence off the bench.
Both Smith and Bynum would be a better fit for the Triangle offense as Smith will the PF setting the play in motion from the Elbow. Keeping him away from the 3 point arc, making him a passer and a scorer not shooter from 10 feet and in where he is effective, and allowing Anthony room to roam. A passing Big man is essential for the triangle offense to work and the Knick lack that.
At the end of the day Monroe is not going anywhere, and I believe Detroit is through tradeing until the trade deadline.

If you are proposing trades for the Sixers, do not propose expiring contracts as assets. The only reason they would take any is if they also get top assets (first round picks) and/or top young players. No team that is under the salary floor will assume contracts just to pay more - they don't have to. So if you want Philly to assume your bad contracts, it will cost you.

Sixers get Stoudemire, Shumpert, Smith

Knicks get Thad Young and Jason Richardson

bulls problems to come

they are jam pack with bigs that all should be starters
noah, gasol,gibson,mirotic

they ain't getting love first of all
so problems will happen when they ain't winning games like they should and guys stats start to drop and playing time starts to get less and less

teamfirstplayer


Gibson has been a great 6th man his entire career he will be fine and how often does a rookie big come into the league and start right away. mirotic needs to adjust to the nba game anyways.

You cavs fans really starting to get annoying every article I go to cavs fan say no keep Wiggins. I rather have love 25 years old average 26 12 I like Wiggins but he not go put them numbers up lol then yall want LeBron to stay and wait till Wiggins become a star if Wiggins stay with cavs he will on average 10pt-16pt

Ca


Yea I don't get it, people act like Love is old. he is still very young.

With the Cavs targeting Love, they may be giving up too much. What about targeting Thad Young? Take your pick of Waiters or Bennett plus those non-gaurunteed contracts you just picked up for Thad and a future pick. I like a lineup of Irving, Wiggins, Lebron, Young, Varejao with a bench better than getting Love and selling the farm.

ChurchPugh


Young is a meh player who isn't nearly worth Bennett or Waiters. Doesn't improve the Cavs much either.

Agree if you think that the lakers are taking forever to hire a coach because of the remote possibility of hiring Doc Rivers in the case he leaves the clippers.

Remember when the Celtics-Rockets were talking a Rondo trade?

The celtics said they were interested in Parsons and Asik and maybe Beverley

What did the Rockets do?
They gave Asik and parsons away for nothing

I guess it made too much sense to do something like this:

Celtics get Parsons (3yr 41m), Asik, future 2nd

Rockets get Rondo and Bass

Lol rockets are so dumb

NBA


Rockets definitely f'ed up when they turned Parsons loose. Struck out on major free agenst too. Not a good summer.

If I were the Cavs, I will not trade Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love , what if they lose and then James and Love go away after the season?

USA


Ummmm.

jbbaby


It's time for the Cavs to stop being Cleveland and seize the moment. Stop worrying about what might happen and make the trade. You have about a two year window to finally bring a title to that God forsaken city. Go for it.

Does nobody else like the idea of keeping smith in DET? I mean I've been a loyal DET since I can remember but having him come off the bench could have a crazy 2 line since he'll be a PF always then, rotation of the 3 players instead of the playing all at once. I believe Stan Van can control the players, teach BJ. I believe this team can fight for a 5 seed and the highest, but for us Pistons fans? that would be great

(Trade Bynum to Magic for a unprotected 2nd)
(Send Tony Mitchell to the D league)

KCP/Meeks/Dinwiddie
Butler/Singler/Datome/Martin
Monroe/Smith/Jerebko
Drummond/(Monroe)/Gray

Diesel72


You don't pay someone 15 mil to come off the bench

kn1ck3rb0ck3r


But you pay 15 million for skill players, so why not keep him and still give him his minutes off the bench and situational where he could thrive and probably average 15-20 ppg because hell be in better position to (literally)

-Love is a superstar
-TWolves aren't a playoff team yet
-Cavs need win-now players

Cavs get Love

TWolves get Wiggins, Bennett

You can think I'm off, but I believe that if the Cavs are going to make a move to obtain Kevin Love for Andrew Wiggins, they need to persist in having the Timberwolves include Dieng in the deal OR they need to make a subsequent deal to obtain an elite rim protector OR I think they call up the 76ers.

Philly has been coveting Wiggins for such a long time. Noel looks legit in summer league, but they have Embiid waiting in the wings. I don't see those two playing together. Perhaps there is a way to ship Wiggins to Philly, Love and Noel to Cleveland, and Varejao/Young/picks to Minny. Obviously Cleveland would have to include more. But what they ended up with along with what they wouldn't trade away could be a winning mix. Minny picks up some pieces that begin the rebuild but remain semi-competitive. Philly get their man and make him and Embiid the future of their franchise.

Out of the box, I know, and very farfetched. But just an idea!

ChurchPugh


Good ideas, but Anderson Varejao is one of LeBron's favorite teammates ever. Cleveland would never let Varejao go knowing that.

What of the sixers offer Eric Bledsoe a max contract?

MCW
Bledsoe
McDaniels
Thad
Noel

Philadelphia


As a philly fan I don't understand why there are no talks of us making a move for bledsoe. we have no shooting at the 2-guard so why not run a two point guard system like bledsoe did in Phoenix, which produced a 40+ win team in the west.

I want to find the balance between competitive and tanking so we don't have to endure another 26 game losing streak

Cavs offseason

1) trade d.waiters, a.bennett, t.thompson, b.haywood and 2 future 1st round picks for k.love and r.turiaf
- that's one of the best packages for love which includes 3 promising&unproven players and future draft picks. Wolves have to trade love and, so, 3 young talents and future picks will hasten their rebuilding process. No need to say why cavs make that trade: they will have a big 4 (irving, wiggins, lebron, love) which is young and much talented.
2) sign g.davis (2-year, 6m) via MLE
- experienced backup bigman who plays both pf and c positions.
3) sign t.douglas (min.)
- backup pg who adds depth for pg/sg spots.

Irving - dellavedova - douglas
Wiggins - miller -
Lebron - felix - jones
Love - davis
Varejao - turiaf - powell

Nuggets clear money to go after superstar 2015.

Lawson/Robinson/Brooks
Afflalo/Foye/Harris
Rooster/Shumpert/Miller
Bargnani/Faried/Jokic
McGee/Mosgov/Nurkic

Knicks can forget about 2nd superstar in 2015 with this trade. But if Pacers loose stephenson. Lebron lacks experience around him. Rose health always in question. Knicks have a
chance. Especially if they can do:

Pacers get JrSmith Lin Nash Rockets 1st
Lakers get G.Hill Hardaway Early Amare Turner (s&t)
Knicks get Kobe Copeland


Top 5 seed
Calderon/Larkin/Prigioni
JrSmith/Hardaway/Antekokounpo

Or

To all of the fans for the teams trying to trade for Kevin Love. If the situation was reversed, and you had to trade a top 10 player, are these the deals you would want your GM to make?

Golden State fans, if you had to trade Seth Curry, would you take the type of offer Golden State is making for Love?

If you are honest with yourselves and take your team blinders of, you will of course answer will a resounding NO. That is, if you are an honorable person.

But you can also loose him for nothing the longer you wait things can get bad how about love gets injured in october then you getting nothing
