3 team trade

Knicks- reggie jackson and thunder 2nd rnd pick

Nets- jeremy lamb and kendrick perkins

Thunder- brook lopez and jose calderon






25 Jan 2015 14:39:14

Nyk get L Datome , 2nd rd pick

Det get J Calderon




24 Jan 2015 23:17:04
Knicks - Spurs

Knicks trade Hardaway Jr

Spurs trade 2015 first and second round picks

Knicks move out THJ for a pair of draft picks and a trade exception.

Spurs (using a trade exception) get another shooter to fit into that great system.






24 Jan 2015 22:56:29
Wizards - Rockets - Kings - Magic

Wizards trade Blair, 2018 second round pick
Wizards get Stauskas

Rockets trade Shved, Knicks 2015 and 2016 second round picks
Rockets get Blair, Sessions

Kings trade Stauskas, Sessions, Williams
Kings get Frye, Ben Gordon, Knicks 2016 second round pick

Magic trade Frye, Gordon
Magic get Shved, D. Williams, Knicks 2015 second round pick (Rokcets), Wizards 2018 second round pick

Wizards swap out Blair (no PT) and a future second round pick for the former lottery shooter who has already been labeled by many as a bust.

Rockets need to upgrade at back up center and point guard so they give up a few second round picks and an expiring contract for two savvy vets.

Kings look at add veteran shooting and floor spacing to allow Gay and Cousins to work one on one better.

Magic gain some expiring contracts, rid themselves of that bad Fyre contract, and get two second round pick. The Knicks pick with any luck will be #31 overall so it is almost the same as getting a late first round pick for two verteran players they never should of signed. Win win.




24 Jan 2015 22:36:47
Raptors - Pelicans

Raptors get Anthony Davis for a second round pick

Like it?

No seriously

Raptors get Evans, Anderson

Pelicans get A. Johnson, Hayes, Fields, 2015 first round pick, Knicks 2016 first round pick

Raptors are sliding in the east due to poor play at the 3 and 4 spots. Bringin in Evans provides a shot creator from the 3 spot making Lowery no longer the only guy who can break down a defense. Anderson provides spacing and 3 point shooting to allow Lowery, DeRozan, and Evans to work in 1-on-1 situations.

Pelicans begin to realize they are out of the playoffs and look to unload players for future picks. Swapping out Evans and Anderson (not a great fit with Davis) for expiring contracts, a late first round pick this year and a likely lottery pick next year when LSU recruit Ben Simmons will be draft illegible.




24 Jan 2015 18:27:51

All my ideas on here get shot down. But I see this meeting all team needs. So maybe?

Knicks, Thunder, Lakers

Knicks get Kendrick Perkins, Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Nick Collison, and (the coveted) Reggie Jackson
***Bye, Bye Carmelo and Hello to a new beginning in 2015-2016! With this deal, the Knicks have only Shane Larkin ($1.6M), THJ ($1.3M), and Cleanthony Early ($507.3K) under contract next season. They gain the bird rights however to Reggie Jackson and build around him through free agency and the draft. They'll have an incredible amount of flexibility and allow Phil to build his own team. Worth it to hit the reset button.

Thunder get Jordan Hill, Julius Randle, and Pablo Prigioni
***The Thunder get what they need: an upgrade down low off the bench, a young stud they can allow to bring along slowly and keep under his rookie deal for a few years, and a capable veteran point to help fill the backup point spot. They loose vets/locker room presences, but buy swapping Perk for Hill, they not only get better but push that cap space back to the summer of Kevin Durant. This gives them future flexibility.

Lakers get Carmelo Anthony and Jose Calderon
***Lakers without making this deal will have a decent amount of cap space this summer. However, the Lakers aren't the destination they once were. Who is going to want to go there? With this deal, they can officially shut Melo down for the year and tank. Next season, they'll have their lottery pick plus Kobe handing the torch to Melo. Melo is locked up for the foreseeable future. Calderon is a nice option at point as a pass first guy who can distribute between Melo and Kobe. Asterisk: Lakers do this deal if they are convinced they won't land any top level guys this summer. Melo is perfect for LA, but this will be the team that will need convincing.


Once again Melo has a NO TRADE CLAUSE he isn't going to play in L.A. Especially without a healthy Kobe


Not to mention that 4 expiring contracts and one over rated pg is no where near enough value for melo, if they really want reggie jackson they'll just overpay for him in FA


PG: Jackson / Lin
SG: Hardaway / Galloway
SF: Early / Thomas

orlando trade: tobias harris and kyle o'quinn
orlando get: papanikolaou, quincy acy. a future first from new york and a future second from houston

new york trade: jose calderon, quincy acy and a future first
new york get: tobias harris, isaiah canaan and a 2014 second round pick from houston

houston trade: isaiah canaan, papanikolaou and 2 second rd picks
houston get: jose calderon and kyle o'quinn

orlando could lose harris in the summer and although a RFA it may be wise to trade him now and get some pieces whilst indirectly giving more playing time to aaron gordon to help his development
new york acquire harris who has stated he would be interested in playing in his home town and relieve themselves of calderons contract which gives them brilliant flexibility in FA when bargnani and stoudamire also come off the books
houston acquire calderon who can offer one thing beverley can't in a playoff run which is experience and the PG position was the only position where it was lacking, they also acquire o'quinn who can come in as a strong second fiddle to howard when he goes to the bench


24 Jan 2015 16:41:47
no no no bad for Orlando




24 Jan 2015 15:23:47

NYK get: Goran & Zoran
Offseason, Sign: Tobias Harris & Rajon Rondo
Draft: Okafor

Suns need more for the Dragic brothers.


Sixers also wouldn't give up a potential #11 overall first round pick for THJ. He's good but not that good.


But you are a hopeful Knicks fan kn1ck3rb0ck3r


Sixers don't have the Cavs first rounder. They have the heats first. And they certainly aren't giving that up for thj.


Why would they sign dragic and rondo? And there noooo way knicks trading hardaway




23 Jan 2015 21:49:06
Magic NYK

If Harris wants to play for NYC and the standings stay somewhat the same

NYK 2015 1st and THJ


orlando 1st and Harris

NYK still drafts Towns or Turner or if they think they can land Gasol draft Russell

Orl gets Okafur and has a deadly front court

succeed and proceed

Take Oladipo out


Makes no sense either way. Knicks can sign Harris if they want to in free agency and Magic have little interest in THJ with Oladipo there. Knicks be better off keeping the worst record and have 25% chance of getting Okafor.




23 Jan 2015 21:45:50
Big OKC trade

Thunder get Tim Hardaway, Jose Calderon, and Andrea Bargani

Knicks get Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Kendrick Perkins, and Nick Collison

PF. S. Ibaka/ P. Jones/ G. Jarrett
SF. K. Durant/ A. Roberson
C. S. Adams/ A. Bargani/ M. McGary
SG. T. Hardaway/ D. Waiters/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ J. Calderon/ I. Smith


Jackson > THJ
Calderon is overpaid and has a bad contract for a bad up PG
Lamb still has potential.
Perkins is a pain in the butt on the court but a great locker room leader.
Bargnani shouldn't be in the league, yet alone getting paid $11M

Thunder say HELL NO


Why do the Thunder do this? That's a lot of money to take on this season and beyond for a backup point, continue the logjam at the 2, and deplete the front court depth.

Possible New York Knicks 2015-16 Roster

NYK Trades: Jose Calderon and Pablo Prigioni
SAC Trades: Derrick Williams and a 2015 Kings 2nd Round Pick

Don't Pick Up these Players Options:

This gives New York 32 Million dollars to spend.

C. Aldrich

1st: Emmanuel Mudiay
41st: Marcus Paige

Jeremy Lin
Wesley Matthews
Thomas Robinson
Landry Fields
DeAndre Jordan
Tobias Harris
Wilson Chandler

Knicks 2015-16 Roster:
PG- E. Mudiay/J. Lin/M. Paige
SG- W. Matthews/T. Hardaway Jr/L. Fields
SF- Carmelo/W. Chandler/Early
PF- T. Harris/T. Robinson/Acy
C- D. Jordan/Aldrich


Wesley Mathews, Deandre Jordan, and Tobias Harris will demand 10+ a piece. don't forget there's a new TV deal so players will be getting paid a lot more. Don't be surprised when someone pays Deandre Jordan 15 million. And it's not like any of these players will take paycuts to play with Carmelo and the Knicks lol


23 Jan 2015 21:43:17

23 Jan 2015 18:33:36
Thunder, Celtics Deal.

Thunder get Avery Bradley, Brandon Bass, Tyler Zeller

Celtics get Kendrick Perkins, Nick Collison, Reggie Jackson, Andre Roberson

Thunder upgrade their roster. Bradley could be the first guy off the bench and provide an offensive and defensive spark. Slide Waiters into the starting lineup. Bass and Zeller are your two bigs off the bench. Plus, Bass comes off the books this summer and allows the Thunder to tinker with their roster and keep Bradley at a reasonable price (less expensive than Jackson's projected deal).

Westbrook, Bradley, Smith
Waiters, Morrow, Lamb
Durant, PJ3
Ibaka, Bass, (McGary)
Adams, Zeller

Celtics get expiring deals, an old fan favorite, a potential building block in Jackson, and a defensive stud on the perimeter on his rookie deal. I like this deal for the Celtics. Bradley and Bass don't fit the direction Boston is headed. But to acquire Jackson to pair with Smart could be. well, smart. Paying Jackson $14M a year this summer wouldn't kill their cap, and they could still build through the Draft AND Free Agency. Perk would be incredibly well received in Boston. Roberson could be inserted into the rotation from day one. If they find a way to get rid of Wallace's contract, they can really build something as soon as this summer. A core of Jackson, Smart, Sully, Olynyk may not strike fear in anyone. But, add in a few pieces this summer, and they have what it takes to be more than a fringe playoff team.




23 Jan 2015 18:08:47
Possible 2015-2016 Boston Celtics Roster

BOS-PHI Trade:
BOS Trades: Evan Turner, Gerald Wallace and a Future 1st Round Pick and Future 2nd Rounder
PHI Trades: MCW and 11 Mil Trade Exception
Reason: Gives Boston a good Combo guard to pair with Smart, and gets rid of Wallace's Contract. For the 76ers, this gives them another two picks for the future and they never really had trust with MCW. Plus they get Turner back for cheap.

BOS-WAS Trade:
BOS Trades: Avery Bradley and a future 2nd Round Draft Pick
WAS Trades: Paul Pierce

This then leaves Boston with around 35 Million to spend.

7th: Willie Cauley-Stein
21st: Sam Dekker
37th: Marcus Paige
52nd: Alex Poythress

Kawhi Leonard
Greg Monroe
Kevin Garnett

2015-16 Celtics Roster:
PG- MCW/Pressey/M. Paige
SG- M. Smart/J. Young/Dekker
SF- K. Leonard/P. Pierce/A. Poythress
PF- G. Monroe/KG/J. Sullinger
C- W. Cauley-Stein/K. Olynyk/T. Zeller


23 Jan 2015 19:21:26
Kawhi gets resigned 10000000% and I think Monroe gets resigned as well. I also think that this is KG's last year and he will find himself as a minority owner of the Minnesota T-Wolves.


23 Jan 2015 19:28:25
We have a new winner for worst trade I've ever seen (non-sarcastic division).


Why would Philly want Evan Turner back and Wallace contract? in exchange of MCW? c'mon.

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


23 Jan 2015 16:36:57
As a Sixers fan, I would literally vomit if this happened. Luckily, since Hinkie is running the show and not Doug Collins, I have no concerns that it will.


Melo has a no trade clause!! no trade to philly is going to happen period!!


23 Jan 2015 19:24:32
^ With Wizfan on this. People need to stop involving Melo in trades, he went to a big market for his brand. Why would he ever waive his no-trade clause to a team that is rebuilding.


Melo is sooooo overrated no way my sixers want his expensive ass on our team.

go 76ers

Rockets - Pacers

Rockets trade Terry, Capela, Knicks 2015 and 2016 second round picks

Pacers trade George Hill

Rockets add a scoring combo guard who is best served coming off the bench and playing against second units. Hill gives the team another 3 point threat and a solid on the ball defender.

Pacers should look to blow things up and rebuild around a healthy Paul George in 2015-2016. Swapping out Hill (not a good option as a starting point guard) for an expiring contract, a prospect and a pair of high second round picks will help the Pacers get started in their rebuilding process.




23 Jan 2015 02:30:05
Knicks receive: 2015 2nd rd pick

Cavs receive: Pablo Prigioni




22 Jan 2015 23:26:33
Rockets - Hornets - Knicks (trade deadline deal - Melo to contender he won't veto)

Rockets trade J Terry (exp), T Jones, C Brewer (player option), A Shved (exp), K Papanikolaou (exp), 2015 1st round pick (via Pelicans), 2017 1st round pick, 2015 & 2016 2nd round picks
Rockets get C Anthony

Hornets trade M Williams (team option), J Pargo (exp), J Maxiell (exp), J Taylor (exp), 2015 1st & 2nd round pick
Hornets get J Calderon, C Brewer (player option), T Jones

Knicks trade C Anthony, J Calderon
Knicks get J Terry (exp), A Shved (exp), K Papanikolaou (exp), M Willaims (team option), J Pargo (exp), J Taylor (exp), J Maxiell (exp)
- Rockets 2015 & 2017 1st round picks (2015 via Pelicans)
- Knicks own 2015 & 2016 2nd picks back from Rockets
- Hornets 2015 1st & 2nd round pick

- Rockets get Melo for expirings and draft picks. He knows not to decimate a team like did with Knicks in a trade for him now that he has no trade clause
- Hornets get deeper, improve 3 pointing shooting and much needed spacing for playoff push
- Knicks complete tear down for picks and tanking

Any comments?


Hornets won't give up a first round pick for the players they are getting in return.

Rockets can't trade Brewer or Shved in a trade with other players till Feb 18th.

Papanikolaou contract isn't expiring after the year

Otherwise Rockets and Knicks are better teams now


23 Jan 2015 03:28:54
Houston is not trading there bench and all those draft picks for another ball hog


23 Jan 2015 03:50:24
Hornets say no, there is no way they give up there first for role players


- Maybe I had hornets give up too much.
- I said trade deadline deal, so they can trade all involved
- Papanikolaou has team option next year. Mistyped it
- Anyone who thinks Melo is a ball hog has never seen him play with good teammates. Watch Olympics or all star game. he's a great and willing passer. Knicks playbook has been "Everyone else sucks, pass it to Melo"




22 Jan 2015 02:11:41
Knicks - Rockets - Bulls - Celtics

IF and I mean IF the Knicks decide to move Melo and IF he agrees to way his no trade clause it be to Houston only.

Knicks trade Melo, Calderon, Smith

Knicks get Thornton, Terry, Dunleavy, Pelicans 2015 first round pick (from Rockets), Clippers 2015 first round pick (from Celtics), Kings 2015 first round pick (from Bulls), own 2015 and 2016 second round picks (from previous trade with Rockets) , Rockets 2017 first round pick

Rockets trade Terry, Papanikolaou, Ariza, Pelicans 2015 first round pick, Knicks 2015 and 2016 second round picks, 2017 first round pick

Rockets get Melo

Bulls trade Dunleavy, Mirotic, Kings 2015 first round pick

Bulls get Ariza, Smith

Celtics trade Thornton, Clippers 2015 first round pick

Celtics get Calderon, Papanikolaou, Mirotic

IF the Knicks decide to move Melo they will look to add a ton of picks and cap relief in return. By moving out Melo and Calderon the only contract on the books for next season is Hardaway Jr. Bringing back potential four first round picks (the Kings pick may turn into a second round pick) plus their own high second round pick will give the Knicks a huge boost to preform a Thunder like rebuilding from the draft.

Rockets are still behind the Warriors in the west and have been looking to add a third star for a while. While Melo decide to stay in New York in the offseason, he didn't know the Knicks would be this bad. The Rockets are all in right now so adding Melo for some picks in the future is smart move.

Bulls are struggling on defense. Shocking considering who the coach is right? Ariza is averaging over two three pointer made a game and two steals a game. A healthy defensive trio of Butler, Ariza, and Noah will push the Bulls toward the NBA finals.

Celtics use a few of there many trade exceptions to make this trade. The Celtics flip one of their many draft picks for two young prospects while great upside and a veteran point guard to mentor Smart.


Celtics say no

Mr. Best in the World

Why would the Celtics say no? Two good young prospects who we know can play for a late first round pick from the Clippers who could be who knows what in this weak draft?


22 Jan 2015 17:39:14
If Knicks and Rockets agree to send Melo for Houston it will be for Howard


22 Jan 2015 17:58:10
Houston says No they don't need another ball hog


What's the point of trading Melo for Howard? Who gets Howard then?


Oh I agree the Rockets would be stupid to make this trade but you can see why they would feel this way to make the trade




21 Jan 2015 21:09:50

2 things 1) no way mn gives up Rubio he Is the face of the franchise along with wiggins and he is in my mind a top 10-15 pg 2) no way in hell klove signs with mn, and actually I don't think I want that ball hog cry baby


And wiggins is our sg. And baz is our sf. So this person doesn't even look at current roster. Baz isn't backing up wiggins in the future. They on court together.


Baz is your 2 wiggins is your 3 but neither player should be traded

Knicks don't have a second round pick this year and definitely shouldn't resign Acy or stat unless stat wants 5 mil per year

They do have pick if they trade Prigioni like I said in first half

If stat accepts low contract then they should. Plus Acy is a good energy guy and will be cheap so why not


Bargs is expiring, why waive him?

To NYK - Reggie Jackson, Kendrick Perkins

To OKC - Jose Calderon, THJ, Jason Smith, 2018 1st

Ok, I know on the surface this doesn't look like a trade either team would make, but let me explain.

Yes, the Knicks can sign Reggie Jackson this offseason and not give up anything for him, but this is about who else they can sign with Calderon and THJ's contracts off of the books. Assuming Jackson would take $13M/year, adding him to the projected payroll that includes both Calderon and THJ, the Knicks would have $49M tied up, leaving them approximately $18M to spend (guessing at the cap). Moving Calderon and THJ now would open up another $10M, giving the Knicks $28M to spend. That extra $10M means the difference between signing one and two big player contracts.

As for OKC, they take in a 1st and a solid young rotation piece in THJ who they either use or add him to another trade. It might be hard to accept, but Calderon could be a good piece for the Thunder.

OKC is the 5th WORST three point shooting team in the league, Calderon excels at shooting from the outside. OKC is the 4th WORST team in APG, Calderon has always been a good assist and assist turnover ratio PG. Once you get to the playoffs, getting into the halfcourt and moving the ball become more prevalent, Calderon is a perfect guard for that.

Finally, the Thunder don't have cap space until after Calderon's contract is up, so adding his $7.5M neither affects the Thunder's ability to sign other FA's, and also is small enough that it wouldn't push them into the luxury tax area.

Solid trade except for the 1st round pick Knicks and everyone else know thunder aren't going to match 13 mil for Reggie jackson those guys alone should be enough to get jackson, better losing him for nothing

The problem with "we can just sign him next season" is that the Knicks and lakers just don't have the draw they did 10 years ago. If you could just sign Lebron, why didn't you? If you offer jackson 4 years $40 million, the thunder match instantly. If you offer ~60 million, is that way overpaying? Do the thunder even match then? Restricted free agents are hard to pry away.


I can dig this.


One of the best explained and thought out trades on this site. Nice work


That's a better package than what they got for Harden lol


I agree with you Benjamin66 that the majority of cases do lend to the incumbent matching an RFA deal, but in this situation specifically, the Thunder have shown that they are not willing to go into the luxury tax to keep a player. I think the fact that Jackson's minutes have declined considerably since OKC picked up a more cost friendly Dion Waiters suggests that they won't make a big effort to keep Jackson.

With NY not being the FA hotspot that it was at one time, trading for Jackson and trying to convince him to stay may be the better play for the Knicks

For the record I don't want Reggie jackson at all I think he's way over rated and someone's going to overpay for him
