Thunder/ Wizards

Thunder get: Markieff Morris, Nene, Kelly Oubre

Wizards get: Enes Kanter, Dion Waitors, Ersan Ilyasova.

01 Jul 2016 05:39:51
I know okc is trying to sign Al Horford but what if Okc drops Singler, A mo, and Ersan then start Sabonis at the 4, then sign Waiters Matt Barnes and Tayshaun Prince all can score all has really good D.

Starters
Russ
Oladipo
KD
Sabonis
Adams

Bench
Waiters
Roberson
Barnes
Prince
Kanter.

01 Jul 2016 06:34:34
Prince can not play the 4.

Nets - Thunder - Hawks

Nets get - Kanter and Payne

- Future PG and nice center

Thunder get - Horford (sign and trade) and Hinrich

- Gets the man they want to pair with Durant and Westbrook. Losing Payne hurts but they can slide Dipo to point if needed

Hawks get - Lopez and Ellington

- Gets a great post scorer to replace Horford

Payne - Levert - RHJ - Robinson - Kanter

Westbrook - Dipo - KD - Horford - Adams

Schroeder - Korver - Bazemore - Milsap - Lopez.

01 Jul 2016 05:09:23
I definitely do that If I'm OKC and Atlanta. I don't do that if I'm the nets.

01 Jul 2016 06:19:22
I think the Nets win this trade. They get like a 23 year old young center who has potential to be special once he plays defense. And they get a young point guard who was just a lottery pick.

01 Jul 2016 07:02:22
Nets get younger so that is a benefit and although Lopez isn't the rebounder that kanter is he can play some defense. I like the deal for both teams.

30 Jun 2016 16:28:15
Okc is trying to sign horford so they need to drop some salary. To do this they'll probably have to trade enes kanter and kyle singler (not that he does anything except get paid) . What are some possible trades for kanter? I was thinking a trade for a decent sf and a to back up Durant IF he resigns a back up centre and a few picks.

Players in mind - ariza, crowder (bit of a reach), tyreke evans, mahinmi, randle, dieng

Starting line up

Russ
Oladipo
Kd
Horford
Adams

Ideal bench
Payne
Roberson / morrow
Ariza / huestis
Ilyasova / sabonis
Dieng / mcgary.

30 Jun 2016 16:43:00
Or just sign and trade Horford to OKC for Kanter, Singler, and rights to Abrines. Then sign a backup SF like Joe Johnson or Jared Dudley

Westbrook/ Payne
Oladipo/ Roberson/ Morrow
Durant/ Johnson/ Huestis
Horford/ Ilyasova/ Collison
Adams/ Sabonis/ McGary.

30 Jun 2016 14:29:24
Hawks-Thunder

Al Horford (s&t) for Kanter, Payne

Thunder reportedly want Horford to help bring Durant back. Need to get rid of Kanter's contract. Hawks get a replacement center and a young backup point guard.

Westbrook/ Foye
Olidipo/ FA
Durant/ Singler
Horford/ Illyasova/ Sabonis
Adams/ Collison

Schroder/ Payne
Bazemore/ Korver
FA/ Sefolosha
Millsap/ Scott
Kanter/ Splitter.

30 Jun 2016 15:26:41
Probably OKC need to include 1rd picks.

30 Jun 2016 15:31:20
I hate the thunder having to give up Payne for this though.

30 Jun 2016 09:16:49
Here are a few good trades for OKC-
If KD goes to Oakland -
Russell Westbrook, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams in exchange for Steph Curry and Andrew Bogut
Russell Westbrook reunites with Durant so will probably resign with the Warriors in 2017 instead of testing FA at the Thunder if Durant leaves and the Warriors get rid of Bogut for two quality young centers.
If KD stays - 2017 (and maybe 2018) future first rounder, Enes Kanter and Cameron Payne for Greg Monroe and MCW
OKC can go all out for an NBA championship by replacing Ibaka and getting a better back up guard and Milwaukee can continue to rebuild although it will probably take two draft picks.
What do you think? Who is better off in these trades?

30 Jun 2016 12:59:57
Westbrook, Kanter and Adams
FOR
Curry and Bogut
GSW wins that trade by a lot

2017 (+2018) first (s), Kanter and Payne
FOR
MCW and Monroe
MIL wins this trade

Both trades are not favourable for OKC.

29 Jun 2016 09:30:53
If the Sixers are going to make "noise" this season to lure in BIG free agents, we will first have to make a move that shows where serious about becoming GREAT again.

And as much as i HATE dealing with these teams, these are our easiest avenues of approach.

If Durant is truly leaving OKC:

TRADE#1
OKC - GS - PHI

OKC gets T. Luwawu / D. Saric / R. Covington + Philly`s 2017 1st Rnd Pk (from Lakers)

GS gets K. Durant

PHI gets H. Barnes and GS 2017 1st Rnd Pk

TRADE#2---------------OR--------------
OKC - Boston - Sixers

OKC gets D. Saric / R. Covington / Boston 2017 1st Rnd Pk (Nets) + Jae Crowder

Boston gets K. Durant (S&T) + N. Stauskas

Sixers gets M. Smart / James Young / Demitrius Jackson and OKC 2017 1st Rnd Pk

-----NOTE----NOTE----NOTE---NOTE----
These trades give OKC something in return for losing the talent of KD. Because I`m sure they would rather receive something for him in a sign and trade, then nothing as he signs somewhere else.

29 Jun 2016 11:16:53
It's either he wants to go or he doesn't.
He would not want his future team to give away a heap of assets to get him when he could sign with them for no loss of assets, the man wants to win, and he would want the team to be in best shape possible and giving assets away isn't going to get him a championship.

29 Jun 2016 14:02:56
The sixers aren't giving up a high 1st, a lottery in saric. for what, someone they can just likely get by maxing out? makes zero sense for the sixers.

29 Jun 2016 14:11:42
Ehh. They don't need us to make those deals work.

29 Jun 2016 14:30:17
Also golden state would still need to drop salary to sign Durant. So this deal is meaningless. And why include okc at all. They have no rights to Durant anymore. They missed their chance to get real value for him.

28 Jun 2016 06:18:46
Nets offseason

-Trade Jarrett Jack for Jeremy Lamb

-Trade draft rights to Juan Vaulet to OKC for Kyle Singler, Mitch McGary, and rights to JP Tokoto

-Trade Lopez, Bogdanovic to Bucks for Monroe, MCW, and top 3 protected 2017 1st

Free agency:
-Sign Terrence Jones 3yr 37m
-Sign Tyler Zeller 3yr 20m
-Re-sign Donald Sloan 2yr 10m
-Re-sign Willie Reed 1yr 3m
-Re-sign Henry Sims 1yr 2m

Lineup:
MCW/ Sloan/ Larkin
Lamb/ LeVert/ Whitehead
RHJ/ Singler/ Karasev
Jones/ McCullough/ Reed
Monroe/ Zeller/ Sims.

28 Jun 2016 06:22:00
I like the trades but this could be the worst 3 point shooting team in the league with MCW and RHJ 😂.

28 Jun 2016 06:38:24
Possibly but Lamb and Jones are average shooters.

27 Jun 2016 23:09:11
LAC-BOS

LA gets Crowder, Olynyk, Rozier/ D. Jackson, jerekbo and future first.

Boston gets Griffin

There are rumors that the clippers are looking to sign kd. With this trade they clear 5 or 10 million dollars depending on if they keep jerekbo. While also clearing money they get a good stretch 5 in olynyk, a good 3 and d forward, a backup point guard, and a future first. The clippers would then be able to offer kd the max and a team with and elite pass first point guard, a top 5 center, a really good coach and a team that now has much better depth than before. And after signing kd, the clips would still have 5 to 10 million to sign other free agents and then could go over the cap to resign Crawford, and possibly w. Johnson and rivers.

Cp3-rivers-rozier/ Jackson
Redick-Crawford
Kd-Johnson
Crowder-jerekbo
Dj-olynyk

I think Boston would be willing to give up that package for Blake. Boston gets its star, and if kd were to leave okc, the team put in place by that trade in LA would be hard to resist.

28 Jun 2016 01:00:29
No cap space kd.

28 Jun 2016 01:41:34
That would be a great team but it would be contingent on KD's approval first. If he said he'd 100% join if they made that deal (I think that would be as attractive a team as any as he has best pure pg in the league, arguably top center in the league (first all-team nba) and wouldn't have to compete with anyone for shots plus LA isn't a bad place to live although I don't think Durant has that personality) I think they definitely pull the trigger. I don't think this offer is attractive enough for them to do it first in an attempt to attract him since from a pure value perspective they are getting robbed by Boston especially when it isn't clearing up an awful amount of cap space. LA could do a similar deal with the Nuggets.

28 Jun 2016 02:11:49
Your dreaming.

28 Jun 2016 03:04:22
Clippers only trade griffin to the celtics if they get Crowder, Smart, Brooklyns 2017 and 2018 first round picks.

28 Jun 2016 03:10:36
I think leaves the Clips front line too short of talent. Crowder' snot a four, and Jerekbo and Olynyk are not aspiring either.

28 Jun 2016 05:06:19
@simmonsorbust I'm a suns fan, who is it lopsided for?

28 Jun 2016 14:02:53
I've said it before, but why do the clippers always look like they're
getting robbed on here? Is it me over valuing thier guys? Paul Jordan and Griffin are still stars in this league, and the best player they can get is Crowder?

28 Jun 2016 14:02:58

28 Jun 2016 14:05:07
. a package of Chriss/ bender and knight/ Bledsoe would be better then the Celtics offer above, and it still doesn't land a star like griffin imo.

26 Jun 2016 04:03:46
The future is looking bright in Phoenix. Now I'm a Thunder fan but the suns are my other team, and i love thinking up rebuilds for them.

Here are some thoughts about the current roster:

#1. They have to move a point guard.
Choosing between who to keep is the major problem. Knight is a score first guy who can play a little off the ball, but typicallt needs the ball in his hands to contribute. Bledsoe is similar but his playmaking is considerably better. Defensively Knight is atrocious, while Bledsoe is one of the better on ball defenders in the league. I'm on board to trade Knight because his contact is a steal for the next 4 years and he's younger without the injury history.

Trade for Knight:
Phx/ Phi

Phx - Covington, Luwawu, 2019 sixers 1st.

Phi - Knight.

This might be selling a little low on Knight but it gives the Suns depth at 2 postions they need it. The Sixers get a young point guard who will thrive next to Simmons leaving him open quite often.


#2. Booker is the Future:
I love Booker, his playmaking, scoring, leadership, and drive to win screams all star to me. Of course defense is a weakness but he's a really smart player and should grasp team defensive schemes even if he never becomes a good on ball defender. Booker is untouchable.

#3 TJ Warren has a 6th man:
While Warren is good enough to start, he isn't a great fit next to Booker due to defense but off the bench he would excel. SF is the shallowest position in the league and going up against your Corey Brewers and Richard Jeffersons puts him in the perfect setting to average 12-15ppg.

#4 Chriss and Bender:
The fact the Suns got both young PFs makes me so happy. I hoped the would draft Chriss due to his upside at #4 but the fact they got Bender and Chriss for nearly nothing is great for the future of this team. i would start Chriss and give him 25mpg while giving Bender 20ish mpg off the bench.

#5 Free Agency?
So my last topic is what should the Suns do in FA? Do you target 2nd tier guys like Horford, Parsons, and Barnes who don't fit the youth movement but boost chances of the playoffs? I say no and my targets are positive locker room guys to show Booker and the crew how to be a team and how to win. Some targets:
Courtney Lee, Kendrick Perkins, Mario Chalmers, Amare, Barbosa. Who better to teach Chriss then the same type of player in Amare.


Moving on to free agency:
Perkins 1 year 1.2mil
Chalmers 2 years 9mil
Amare 1 year 3mil
TO on Tucker.

2016/ 17 Roster:
Bledsoe/ Chalmers
Booker/ Tucker/ Goodwin
Covington/ Warren
Chriss/ Bender/ Amare
Len/ Chandler/ Perkins

Bledsoe nearly makes the all star game.
Len averages a near double double.
Booker puts up 17/ 5/ 3
Chriss is a highlight real every game.
Bender shows all around game much like Horford.

26 Jun 2016 05:32:27
Makes sense but I'd say make that 2019 from sixers top 3 protected.

26 Jun 2016 07:12:56
I may be moving to PHX in the near future and now does seem a great time to jump on the bandwagon. They really hit a homerun getting both Bender and Chriss which fills their hole at the 4 and hopefully one can develop into a star. I don't think they need to rush into a deal for one of pgs and should wait to see how Bledsoe recovers from another meniscus injury (he had multiple injuries to the one in the other knee and eventually had it removed) and keep Knight in bench role. I'd eventually move whoever has more value when the right deal arises (I don't like 76ers deal as its selling short) . I don't think any player is untouchable but for what Booker has shown at age 19 there are few players I'd prefer to have.

A 3 and D type sf would be better than Warren and I think that should be the type of player targeted when they move one of their pgs. I agree with free agency approach and would make sure there are still plenty of valuable minutes for the young guys to grow and get experience. This team has a bright future but they'll have necessary growing pains. Also I'd probably start Bender over Chriss since Bender has professional experience where Chriss has only been playing basketball for 5 years.

26 Jun 2016 12:31:54
Chriss vs Bender is tough because of what they bring to the table. but i think Chriss fits better next to Len and Covington, and Bender fits better next to Chandler and Warren.

26 Jun 2016 16:15:30
No one wants a 2019 pick. That way to far down the line.

26 Jun 2016 19:27:46
Look at the melo trade, they just recieved the last parts of it THIS YEAR.

25 Jun 2016 10:43:28
Boston and OKC

OKC get Bradley Crowder and Brown

Boston get sign and trade durant

Okc line up

Russ / payne
Bradley / oladipo
Crowder / roberson
Sabonis / ilyasova
Adams / kanter

Thoughts?

25 Jun 2016 12:57:31
The Celtics have the cap space to sign Durant. There is no reason to trade two starters and the number three pick.

25 Jun 2016 17:26:41
Nba guru- the reason to do it is that Boston has zero. ZERO. chance of signing him in free agency. ZERO!

25 Jun 2016 21:10:36
This would be Boston signing Durant in free agency. You can't just sign and trade a guy without his consent. This trade is stupid, it's too much for a guy Boston can just sign.

25 Jun 2016 05:53:15
Thunder-Nets

Thunder get cash considerations or some foreign players

Nets get Kyle Singler, Mitch McGary, and draft rights to JP Tokoto

-Sign Joe Johnson, Kendrick Perkins, and Steve Blake

Lineup:
Westbrook/ Payne/ Blake
Oladipo/ Roberson/ Morrow
Durant/ Johnson/ Huestis
Ilyasova/ Sabonis/ Collison
Adams/ Kanter/ Perkins.

25 Jun 2016 07:20:53
Man they are good on guards and wings, don't see them signing Johnson and blake.

25 Jun 2016 07:41:55
I think this is just what OKC needs, veteran pg and backup sf. I don't know why they wouldn't entertain the though of going to OKC who are one of the top teams in West beating Spurs and almost beating Warriors and arguably having already improved with Ibaka trade.

25 Jun 2016 09:04:36
This is awesome i think they'll start both kanter and adams in sure sabonis will improve okc has a way with getting rookies ttat turn into stars

25 Jun 2016 02:41:56
Thunder-Suns

Thunder get PJ Tucker and a 2018 2nd rd pick

Suns get Kyle Singler and draft rights to Alex Abrines and JP Tokoto.

25 Jun 2016 07:51:51
Don't see PHX do this. Abrines isn't coming over for a while and JP Tokoto isn't anything special, Singler is also meh and you have PHX giving up a 2nd rounder for a quality role player in Tucker. OKC would have to include a draft pick or McGary if they wanted Tucker.

24 Jun 2016 16:21:08
OKC

Try to find ways to cut Kyle Singler and sign Jamaal Crawford and Mario Chalmers

Pg Westbrook/ Chalmers/ Payne
Sg Oladipo/ Crawford/ Morrow
Sf Durant/ Roberson
Pf Ilyasova/ Sabonis/ Mcgary
Ce Adams/ Kanter

I'm seeing this as a championship contender. Arguably the best defensive back court right there. Veterans and young talents around with players that can play multiple position. Shooting and inside scoring threat.

24 Jun 2016 17:26:11
Please explain what is unbelievable with this?

24 Jun 2016 17:52:48
Very believable. I thought they were the best team this year. Just choked against GS.

24 Jun 2016 17:53:00
Durant ain't staying in okc.

24 Jun 2016 18:33:36
Tfp: got any sourcing on that? Cause if I'm KD, I ain't going any where.
What LA, to spend two more years getting to the playoffs.
GS, to play third fiddle
Maybe Washington who would be right where okc was the year after harden left?

Okc who were a screw job by the refs from going to the finals adds a huge upgrade at the 2, one of the most talented NBA ready bigs in the draft, has another all NBA player, and an emerging center. But he's just ain't staying. D'ok.

24 Jun 2016 19:53:01
Very Believable, I think Durant is staying. The only thing I disagree on is that I think they'll waive Ilyasova, if they waive him his contract has only 400k in dead money since there's no way out on the Singler contract. Then they can have a look on the market.

24 Jun 2016 20:26:32
USA I don't think they'll sign Crawford or Chalmers as they don't really have a need for either one. I think they should start Roberson because he proved to be at the least a respectable offensive player and would take some pressure off kd and Russell defensively. Which leaves Oladipo as a harden like 6th man, so no need for Crawford, and they drafted Payne in the lottery last year, so they probably want to give him an opportunity.

25 Jun 2016 02:34:54
I think the experience of Chalmers and Crawford would give them a better chance of winning instead of just giving chances to young guys. Hey if they really want to keep both Russ and Kd by 2017 they better win a ring now.

24 Jun 2016 02:09:44
Trade already went down

Orlando gets Serge Ibaka

OKC gets Oladipo, Ilyasova, and #11 (Sabonis)

24 Jun 2016 02:40:20
Bad for orlando.

24 Jun 2016 02:45:56
Highway Robbery by OKC.

24 Jun 2016 09:26:49
Ibaka is a good fit but at a terrible cost.

24 Jun 2016 00:31:48
Trade raptors Ross n Patterson n 9 pick


Okc trade ibake.

24 Jun 2016 02:10:09
Ibaka went to Orlando.

23 Jun 2016 22:42:34
Okc trade ibake

Raptors trade Ross and Patterson n 9 pick

Let me know what you Guys think.

24 Jun 2016 00:11:37
I like this trade but i prefer Bradley from Boston than Waiters.

24 Jun 2016 01:04:06
Can't imagine Thunder trading Ibaka for a draft pick and worse players with Durant's free agency looming. If they lost Durant I could see them considering this type of trade but that wouldn't happen until after the draft and doing this trade after the draft would complicate things since the players drafted probably won't fit or be the player the team would've drafted had they done trade before draft.

23 Jun 2016 20:59:35
Nuggets/ OKC

OKC gets Faried, Nurkic, pick 15

Nuggets get Serge Ibaka.

23 Jun 2016 21:13:49
Don't understand why OKC is looking to trade Ibaka.

23 Jun 2016 21:55:15
Thats way to much for just ibaka maybe just faried plus the pick or just nurkic.

23 Jun 2016 22:39:07
The more Thunder games you watch the more disappointing Ibaka gets, during the regular season he offered very little. It would put the Thunder's small ball line up in flux.

23 Jun 2016 23:28:58
I'm not a fan of Ibaka but I don't see Thunder moving him for that offer regardless. I think you are confusing Nurkic and Jokic Danielono. Nurkic looks like he'll be a solid player but doesn't have Jokic's upside.

23 Jun 2016 08:07:33
Cavs - clippers

Cavs trade
Thompson
Shumpert
Williams

Clippers trade
Jordan
Pierce

Cavs want to keep the big 3 and Thompson if possible but Cavs will need to improve this offseason somehow because every other powerhouses are trying to improve as well. (Warriors, Spurs, Thunder) Clippers I believe will be trying to get younger and start to adjust to the future. Jordan of course is a defensive first team and one of the best Centers but Tristian is developing into an above average Center and will only be getting better. Clippers don't lose their inside presence with Thompson while gaining another defensive wing presence and youth in Shumpert. They lack offense and depth at the ph and Mo Will can still light it up and help give them quality minutes. Pierce wants to win a championship again and he knows Cleveland is a favorite next year. Overall I believe this just gives a start to a positive direction for both teams.

23 Jun 2016 11:16:31
I've never seen a good clippers trade on here. They are always losing the deal.

23 Jun 2016 17:23:56
The Cavs get screwed in this.
