Unlikely but want to know what you think.

GS took home the best FA in Durant so their backcourt is now the best in the league by a mile but their depth in the front court is lacking. This won't be an issue until they get in the later rounds of the playoffs when they will be exposed. After Zaza they don't have much depth.

Iggy and Loney for Moose

GS gets the addition help on the block and sign one more vet player that adds more defense.

As a bucks fan i love it. but if you were the warriors you wouldn't do it. keep trying to use west and Varajao off the bench and hope you can get some production from Looney at the 4.

Good news. If the Thunder traded/ lost Westbrook in FA we could try and get Marvin Bagley. Who is the best prospect since LeBron imo.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 22:18:46
good one. So Westbrook is the only player on the team that is even slightly good? So lose him you get back no assets. I say this because you assume he leaves and you get the number one overall? You legit never think before posting.

The heck are you talking About? If we dealt Westbrook it would be for high lottery picks, "Try and get" you never think before hating fam.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 18:30:26
What are you talking about fam?

Go on. which team is looking to give up that number 1 from a few years away. Mind you. it would be the number 1 pick while having westbrook on the team. So sorry fam, I have a slight bit more confidence in westbrook not leading the worst team in the league, nor other teams giving up the potential #1 pick for westbrook to leave.

Whoopsy fam.

For everyone posting the John Wall trades, I like them but his contract is a bargain for the next 3 years and I don't think he will be traded until the deadline at least. With Scott Brooks as the new coach, I think he will try to make them 2 work on the court.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 05:15:38
Would much rather trade beal than wall. At least wall stays on the court.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 05:33:48
Yea lol but Beal would be much harder to trade with his contract, lesser production than Wall, and injuries. At least he can shoot and is young.

Agree0 Disagree0

My Predictions

Champion - cavs
Runner up - warriors ( loosing that bench has got to hurt)
MVP - Westbrook if thunder make playoffs otherwise Paul George
Rookie - Ben Simmons
Most improved - dangelo Russell
Scoring champ - Westbrook.

Man I really really really don't want to see Warriors vs Cavs finals AGAIN.

Agree2 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 17:56:22
Then don't watch. The league for all its pomp and circumstance is dependent upon the fans. Without us there is no NBA. If a decent portion of fans refused to watch warriors, or to a lesser extent Cavs games, and refused to buy merchandise that had anything to do with "super teams" how quickly do you think the league would react? Their bottom line is what they care about, so that's where to send a message. Take the pledge, no more seasons where the final outcome is almost assured before the preseason.

Was: Bender+ B Knight+ Len
trade: J Wall

Phoe: J Wall+ D Cousins
trade: Len+ Bledsoe+ Knight+ 1rnd pick+ 1rnd pick Miami

Philly: Bledsoe
trade: Saric+ return 1rnd pick sac 17 (swap) and 19

Sac: Saric+ 1rnd pic Phoe+ 1rnd pick Miami+
+return 1rnd pick 17 (swap) and 19 Sacramento
trade: D Cousins

Washington receives a good replacement for Wall and they can rebuilt around Bender

Phoenix receive two all stars and becomes a contender

Philly receives a PG and a leader for that young team.

Sacramento would really suck, but they do have a lot of assets to rebuilt.

Agree2 Disagree3

24 Aug 2016 00:37:10
Trade idea:
Timberwolves receive: Kevin love
Cavaliers receive: gorgui dieng, 2017 first round

Why this trade works Timberwolves: this trade will bring a superstar back to Minnesota to pair along with KAT. In addition we bring the Ricky Rubio Kevin love pair together. This trade would automatically make Minnesota a playoff contender.

Why this trade works Cavliers: last year the cavaliers won the NBA finals seemingly with out kevin love. He didn't play a big role through the series either. Trading away Kevin love will clear up salary space, while also receiving a dominant young big man in gorgui dieng to replace mozgof, and giving you a pick in next years stacked draft.

Agree3 Disagree3

24 Aug 2016 05:22:10
The fact that Love didn't play a huge role in NBA finals (although I think he did better than he gets credit for) doesn't indicate his trade value. What he brings to a team, an elite stretch 4 that is an elite passer and rebounder and still relatively young, makes him much more valuable than what is being offered here.

Not sure why they'd want a player to replace Mozgov when Mozgov actually didn't contribute to the Cavs winning the NBA finals other than keeping the bench warm and being a cheerleader. Also, at this stage Cavs have minimal interest in draft picks.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 05:29:13
Don't forget his bargain contract for 4 years.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 13:14:21
Love has more value than that.

This past year he, averaged 16 and 10 as the 3rd option. Sure his shooting percentages is down, but he is being asked to take more 3s than he used to.

Let's not forget that just 2 years ago he averaged 26 and 12.

I'm just looking for a trade that could reunite the Kentucky players

Sac-Was- Phoe

Sac: Bledsoe+ Warren+ 1rnd pick Phoe+ 1rnd pick Miami 2018

Was: B Knight+ Bender+ Swap rights 2018 phoenix pick

Phoe: Cousins+ J Wall

C: Cousins/ Chandler
PF: Chriss/ Len
SF: Tucker/ Dudley
SG: Booker/ Barbosa
PG: J Wall/ Ulis.

Agree6 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 22:21:36
Doesn't look too bad. Kings free up a bigman slot while adding a very good pg (when healthy) and solid wing prospect in Warren and some future draft picks although Phx will be a playoff team after this trade so value of that pick isn't good but Miami could very well be a lottery team after losing Wade and possibly Bosh. Ideally they'd probably move Bledsoe for some younger pieces but I don't hate the value.

The Wizards lose face of franchise in Wall but get Knight a good young pg and Bender a high prospect and swap rights. I'd switch the swap rights to a 2019 pick since realistically after this trade PHX should be much better than Wizards in 2018. It isn't a bad offer either with a more established but still young player and a prospect.

Phoenix aka Kentucky of the West would have a very good team. I think they'd have to sweeten each of the deals a little bit by probably adding Len to Wizards and Wizards then giving a little bit to the Kings. PHX would probably also have to take any unfavorable contracts the Wizards or Kings may want to get rid of.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 14:57:14
Does anyone have any ideas on how the Bulls could pull out as many draft picks from 2017 draft as possible. 2018 could be included as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 22:31:46
The Celtics and 76ers I believe have the most high caliber draft picks and the Bulls biggest asset is Jimmy Butler so dealing him to either team (Boston would be the better natural fit) should net you one high draft pick minimum and some other assets (maybe two) . I don't think either those teams or very many others would be interested in Wade or Rondo. Players like Portis, Mirotic, Valentine and maybe McDermott should be able to fetch you mid-late 1st rounders and due to their experience in the league but still being relatively young a lot of teams would probably be interested.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 03:31:17
What are your expectations this coming season?


1. Warriors vs Spurs meeting in playoffs
2. Kawhi back to back most defensive player
3. Knicks make playoffs
4. Lillard vs Westbrook leading MVP race
5. LAL keep their pick
6. IND and BOS make CLE's road to finals tougher
7. MIN make playoffs
8. Simmons wins rookie of the year
9. Westbrook 3rd straight ASG MVP
10. Thunder win at least 1 vs GS.

Agree7 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 09:11:47
I have this feeling the Knicks still won't make playoffs

Unless porzingas takes a huge step.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 03:24:13
Who are the most un-tradeable player for each team? In all reason.

ATL - Howard (hometown boy)
BOS - Horford (big contract)
BKN - Lopez (he is the only asset they have though)
CHA - Batum (big contract)
CHI - Wade (hometown boy)
CLE - Lebron (obvoiusly)
DAL - Dirk (their man)
DEN - Mudiay (feel like they'll build around him)
DET - Drummond (franchise guy)
GS - Steph Curry (still the MVP)
HOU - Harden (franchise guy)
IND - George (franchise guy)
LAC - Jordan (he has a good contract locked in for few years)
LAL - Ingram (he is a guy to build a franchise on) or Mozgov (terrible contract)
MEM - Conley (big contract)
MIA - Whiteside (build around him)
MIL - Giannis (well of course rare talent)
MIN - Towns (franchise player)
NOLA - Davis (franchise player)
NYK - Porzingis (future of the franchise)
OKC - Westbrook (franchise player)
ORL - Gordon (future big man)
PHI - Simmons (finally a guy they can build around)
PHX - Booker (could be their franchise player in the future)
POR - Lillard (superstar indeed)
SAC - WCS (if they are to trade Cousins he is needed on this team)
SAS - Leonard (franchise player)
TOR - Derozan (locked in on a good contract)
UTA - Gobert (guy they can build around)
WAS - Wall (franchise player)

Agree3 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 05:02:10
For Denver, I would change Mudiay for Jokic.

Agree2 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 09:37:49
BKN - could trade Lopez for some picks cause they will probably suck and they could tank.
ORL - I don't see any untradeable player for them.
SAC - they make weird moves so hard to predict. Maybe it is Cousins who will go when will be a FA.
UTA - I would say Favors.

Agree1 Disagree2

23 Aug 2016 22:39:00
I think BKN and SAC are so bad that they can't afford to not consider a trade for any of their players and aren't going anywhere with who they have so they should seriously consider trading whomever.

I agree Denver should be Jokic instead of Mudiay and I agree with ORL pick as I've heard them saying outrageous things about Gordon in how they want him to play sf and be lebron-esque. I also think Utah's is Gobert as he is younger than Favors and his defensive presence is unmatched. I think Favors could easily be dealt for a stretch 4 type (or free up minutes for Lyles) that would better pair with Gobert.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 21:45:36
I really feel like the celtics have to draft Giles next year. He is like AD and fills the need for a PF/ Rebounding/ Shot Blocking next to Horford. If the land him and big name FA/ Trade you're looking at a 55-60win team.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 00:39:52
So the celtics signed Horford (top tier FA) . And if they sign another top FA. And get Giles who is considered the top pick or two.

All these moves would amount to a 7 game win increase. Go on.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Aug 2016 18:59:01
the most scewed up teams the next 3 years

1) The Nets
2) Sacramento
3) Miami

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Aug 2016 20:44:53
I wouldn't say the Mavs, they will be a borderline playoff team this year and they could have a lot of cap room next offseason.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Aug 2016 22:36:48
I agree with top 2 but I have faith is Pat Reilly for the heat. The have Whiteside locked up and Winslow and Richardson who look promising. Bosh may never play again but I think Whiteside and Dragic (if they don't trade him) could attract some FA to south beach and make the a decent team.

Dallas I thought was heading into the gutter but they should be somewhat relevant next few years with resigning Dirk, adding Barnes and Bogut and Mathews hopefully playing better being further removed from his injury. They don't have much good young talent however and will likely be too good to get a decent draft pick so I think they're heading for disaster in next 5 years or so.

I don't understand how Lakers can be the most screwed up since they have young guys already in place they just need to mature which they should in next few years and as they do they'll be a major FA destination once again. They also will be in the lottery at least for another year and should be able to add another decent prospect (unless 76ers get pick) .

Overall I think the Nets and Kings are the only teams that are a complete mess with no hope of being good the next 3 years. There are other teams that like Dallas are good now but have little hope longer term (Bulls, Grizzlies) with threat of their best players leaving or severely declining in next 3-5 years.

Magic instead of Hawks.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 14:58:39
Was thinking about them also, but Milsap I think will leave, Dwight will be unhappy, and they don't have good prospects right now either.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 02:14:13
Thunder get Carmelo Anthony

Knicks get Enes Kanter, Cameron Payne, Andre Roberson, Alex Abrines, and 2017 1st round pick

Sign Ty Lawson, Kevin Martin, and Josh Smith to small deals

Pf. E. Ilyasova/ J. Smith/ M. McGary
Sf. C. Anthony/ K. Singler/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ N. Collison/ D. Johnson
Sg. V. Oladipo/ K. Martin/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ T. Lawson/ R. Price.

Agree1 Disagree7

22 Aug 2016 12:48:10
And the Knicks proudly laugh.

Kanter is clearly the center piece. all but guaranteeing they have a 20 million dollar back up center. Unless you think porzingis should come off the bench. But my guess is the thoughts on this trade didn't get that far lol.

Igoudala and a 1st for stanley johnson and kcp.

Agree0 Disagree4

Pistons say hell no.

Agree4 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 22:57:21

receive: C Anthony+ Porzingis+ WC Stein
trade: Griffin+ D Jordan

receive; Cousins+ B Griffin
trade: C Anthony+ Porzingis+ 1rnd pick 17

receive: 1rnd pick nets 17 (swap Boston) + 1rnd pick NY+ Smart+ Jerebko+ A Johnson
trade: Cousins+ Stein

receive: D Jordan
trade: Jerebko+ A Johnosn+ Smart+ Nets pick 17

C Anthony and CP3 are friends/ Porzingis and stein give them a future

Receive two stars

Receive a defensive monster

Sac: They can rebuilt. Their own pick (traded, but protected) and the Nets pick will be good.

Agree5 Disagree1

19 Aug 2016 23:12:38
No, because:

1. Cousins and Griffin are each better than Porzingis and Anthony.
2. Boston has made it pretty clear that it will trade the Brooklyn picks for only one of the best 10 players in the league. So they certainly wouldn't add Smart, Jerebko and Johnson to the mix.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Aug 2016 07:44:17
This Clippers team would be better
C: Stein
Pf: Porzingis
SF: C Anthony
SG: Reddick
Pg: CP3
They can challenge GS and become younger

2) D Jordan is the nr 1 Defensive player in the league. He would be a great combo with Horford.

C Horford
PF: D Jordan
SF: Crowder/ Brown
SG: Bradley
PG: I Thomas/ Rozier

Boston would become a contender. They can challenge Cleveland
They have many pointguards, so Smart is expendable.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Aug 2016 17:33:22
Melo was better and healthier than Griffin last year, who also happens to be an expiring and will command prob 30 mill the following year. Ill take melo.

Porzingis has a higher ceiling and is a far better teammate and building piece. Ill take him over Cousins.

And the knicks can't trade the 17 1st.

I agree with Hamburger on this one.
