Okc plans

Sign Steph Curry Max
Sign Kevin Durant Max

Let adams and Oladipo walk

17/ 18 Thunder

Pf. E. Ilyasova/ 2017 1st rd/ M. McGary
Sf. K. Durant/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. E. Kanter/ D. Sabonis/ D. Johnson
Sg. R. Westbrook/ A. Abrines/ A. Morrow
Pg. S. Curry/ C. Payne/ R. Price.

24 Aug 2016 20:04:05
Cue the clip of Rick James.

24 Aug 2016 20:26:20
Most believable post ever on here, maybe lebron will sign too.

24 Aug 2016 20:43:52
and then they will trade Singler and Kanter for Anthony Davis.

24 Aug 2016 17:43:19
Blake Griffin says he plans to re-sign with Clippers, which means no move to OKC, which means Thunder might have to move Westbrook.

24 Aug 2016 17:50:16
There's other free agents OKC can sign. Paul Millsap, Danillo Gallinari, Gordon Hayward, Rudy Gay.

24 Aug 2016 17:53:03
Griffin isn't the only fish in the sea. After the extension, Okc still has time to build around him.

24 Aug 2016 17:53:21
I've never heard anything so ridiculous. Westbrook is a top 3 point guard, undisputedly a top 10 player, and locked up for 3 more years. OKC trading him would be a travesty.

24 Aug 2016 18:26:13
Do you truly believe that a major free agent would choose to go to Oklahoma City Simmonsorbust? Being a blazer fan, I can tell you that no major free agent is going to a city like that, a market like that, or a team like that.

It's actually incredibly fortunate for okc that Westbrook signed that deal, it means that when they're fighting for the 8 seed this year, that they can trade him and get maximum value because he's not just a 1 year rental.

Maybe okc signs Rudy Gay and Gallo. But are they more than a 5 seed if they do? It's time to rebuild in okc, taking mid level free agents probably isn't going to help much.

24 Aug 2016 20:37:50
I highly doubt Westbrook resigned betting on Blake Griffin coming next year.

24 Aug 2016 15:44:47
Sac/ BOS/ okc

To sac: Brown+Johnson and Payne
To BOS: Adams+ Roberson
To okc: gay +WCS+ Afflalo and young.

24 Aug 2016 17:12:03
I wouldn't trade Adams.

24 Aug 2016 17:42:11
Might trade Johnson even up for Adams, but Boston is not going to include Brown in any OKC deal that doesn't include Westbrook.

24 Aug 2016 18:02:54
Haha. your such a homer supercolider

'Might do Johnson for adams swap"


24 Aug 2016 20:31:03
Once Adams developes a post game which is happening as we speak. hr will be a top 50 player for sure.

23 Aug 2016 15:29:20
Thunder gets Demarcus Cousins

Boston gets Enes Kanter and Alex Abrines

Kings get Steven Adams, Avery Bradley, Cameron Payne, and 2017 Thunder pick.

23 Aug 2016 16:47:28
Why would Boston trade Bradley for Kanter? Seems like a terrible idea.

23 Aug 2016 18:06:05
same crap, but at least he threw a third team to confuse it.

23 Aug 2016 05:26:46
2016 - 2017

Okc - Kings

Okc gets Cousins, Mclemore
Kings get Adams, Kanter and Oladipo

2017 - 2018 free agency Thunder picks up Blake
And Gay. Letting Ersan go and trading Singler and Morrow for a 2nd round

Okc 2016 team
Russ, Price
Mclemore, Roberson
Abrines, singler
Ersan, Sabonis
Cousins, Johnson

Okc 2017 team
Russ, price
Mclemore, Roberson
Gay, Abrines
Blake, Sabonis
Cousins, Johnson.

23 Aug 2016 08:18:46
Need a 3rd team to take Adams or kanter and give Kings an asset.

23 Aug 2016 08:48:59
Sacramento doesn't need more biggs, so i don't think they're interested, however it's sacramento

PC: Lebissiere
SC: Adams
SC: Kanter
PC: Koufos.

23 Aug 2016 16:59:38
True. Just me though Kanter and Adams is better then the other big men they have easy drop or trade but getting Oladipo is a big plus I love Adams i want to keep Adams i'm just thinking bout what okc needs to do to keep Russ longer, plus cousins want out and Kings will have the 3 Kanter adams and Oladipo which is young players still getting better.

23 Aug 2016 03:01:12
Thunder get Demarcus Cousins

Kings get Steven Adam's, Enes Kanter, Cameron Payne, Alex Abrines, and 2017 1st round pick

Thunder sign Ty Lawson

Pf. E. Ilyasova/ M. McGary/ N. Collison
Sf. A. Roberson/ K. Singler/ J. Huestis
C. D. Cousins/ D. Sabonis/ D. Johnson
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Morrow/ D. Hamilton
Pg. R. Westbrook/ T. Lawson/ R. Price.

23 Aug 2016 04:19:43
Kings have Romany big guys already.

23 Aug 2016 05:04:45
Kings wouldn't trade Cousins for more bigs. They would probably want dipo instead of Adams or kantar.

23 Aug 2016 14:23:51
I just find it funny that jbaby has essentially picked out the main group of fillers and just offering all of them for any talented player. The issue with trades like this is pretty clear. You offer 4-5 decent but not elite players, in exchange for 1 elite player. What the kings then have to do is cut most of them for the sake of roster space. So this trade boils down to basically thunder get an elite player, for a crappy 1st, some not so hot younger players, adams, who is going to command a ton of money and enes, who is already paid a lot. its awful.

23 Aug 2016 18:31:53
Not close.

21 Aug 2016 19:52:34
Thunder get Danillo Gallinarri

Nuggets get Domatas Sabonis, Alex Abrines, and Kyle Singler. maybe a future pick

Pf. E. Kanter/ E. Ilyasova/ M. McGary
Sf. D. Gallinari/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ N. Collison/ D. Johnson
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Morrow/ D. Hamilton
Pg. R. Westbrook/ C. Payne/ R. Price.

21 Aug 2016 20:14:08
Nuggets need to make 2 for 1 trades. Not 1 for 3.

21 Aug 2016 20:19:16
if and only if danillo stay health for a full season that trade idea seems a little bit high but man danillo can shoot make up for the minus point from kd.

21 Aug 2016 21:32:53
I agree with NBA's assessment. Although not a bad trade value wise, Nuggets have plenty of assets and should be focused on consolidating them not splitting them. For this reason I don't see them making this sort of trade.

22 Aug 2016 04:04:35
Teams are not interested in quantity, they are interested in potential. Future draft picks would be needed.

21 Aug 2016 19:33:57
Changed some stuff

The cap is expected to be at 102 million next year. Dumping Kanter and Singlers deals while letting Morrow and Ilyasova walk would be my idea.

Thunder/ Nuggets

Thunder - Chandler.

Hornets - Kanter.

Thunder/ Suns

Suns - Singler.

Thunder - 2nd.

Suns take a chance on Singler whos contract isn't terrible.

2017 FA:
Griffin 4 year max
Adams 5 year max sign after Griffin using bird
Oladipo 5 year max sign after Griffin using bird
Roberson (pray he hits close to 35% of his threes) 5 year 60 mil

2017/ 18 roster
Westbrook/ Payne/ Price
Oladipo/ Abrines
Chandler/ Roberson/ Huestis
Griffin/ Sabonis
Adams/ Mcgary

Over the luxury but this team is so deep/ versatile they could beat GS imo.

21 Aug 2016 19:46:10
I like it but I see a lot of bricks on this team.

21 Aug 2016 21:17:57
Don't see Denver being interested in Kanter, they have some young bigs that need court time.

21 Aug 2016 21:57:39
Do you have any actual idea of what these costs would be? Seriously.

Westbrook is at the max. Griffin will get what, 30% of the cap? Adams and Olidapo each 25%?

Youre talking about 25 million for each Adams and Olidapo. 30 million for Griffin. 28 million for westbrook. 12 million for roberson. 12 million for chanlder.

You have just those 6 guys and your salary is already 132 million. Even if you fill out the rest of the roster at about 30 million, that would be a horribly shallow team.

The salary would be 162 million. And after taxes and penalties. itll be well over 200 million (guess) .

I mean. you can't think this is realistic in the least.

22 Aug 2016 15:41:43
Why sign Adams to a max deal? Love him my 2nd fav player on the team but we should be able to keep him around 10 to 12 million a yr then blake at 25 Oladipo at 20 then bring in like gay at 12 mill then drop ersan, kanter, singler and morrow.

22 Aug 2016 18:19:58
Blake will be 30. Oladipo will be 25 and Adams will be close to 20.

The reason why. because that's the going rate.

Blake will get a max, which is 30% for 7-9 years experience. Don't offer it, don't get him. Many other teams will offer it.

Oladipo, shouldn't get a max, but absolutely will. 25% of the cap, 25 million.

Adams may not get a max contract, he doesn't deserve it thus far. But if he performs like this past year, or potentially better given more opportunities on offense with the departure of durant. If he gets his numbers up to about 12 and 10, with great defense.20+ million is the realistic offer the Thunder will need to match.

You don't want gay. And how do you just drop kanter?

22 Aug 2016 21:27:56
Drop as in give him to someone grab like a first rounder for him or like a Taj gibson or something cheap make salary room plus if i was okc i wouldn't pay him 25 million right under max and he is only been in for 3 years he has proven to make that much i rather give him to jazz for Gordon Hayward if he wants that much money.

21 Aug 2016 19:30:36

21 Aug 2016 17:54:19
Clippers-Jazz midseason trade if Clippers are underperforming and CP3 is a threat to leave in free agency

Clippers get George Hill, Alec Burks, Jazz 2017 1st rd pick, Warriors 2017 2nd rd pick, and Thunder 2018 1st rd pick
-Get something rather than losing CP3 for nothing

Jazz get Chris Paul
-This makes the team a true threat to the Warriors

Paul/ Mack/ Neto
Hood/ Exum
Hayward/ Johnson/ Ingles
Favors/ Diaw/ Lyles
Gobert/ Withey/ Bolomboy.

21 Aug 2016 18:17:44
It won't happen because CP3 would want a larger market. Already happened in his youth, now he's edging prime without a ring, he'd only leave to go to a top 5 team in a bigger market.

21 Aug 2016 18:38:17
i don't think CP3 would leave the Clippers, but that Jazz team could be good.

21 Aug 2016 18:38:20
If CP3 went to the Jazz, I think they'd be a top 5 team. If I'm him, I'm just trying to at least make the conference finals at this point.

21 Aug 2016 19:31:15
That would be no threat to the Warriors or Cavs.

21 Aug 2016 21:51:24
If Clippers felt they were going to lose CP3 I'm positive they could get a better offer than that. I'm not sure how CP3 would feel about going to Utah but from a basketball perspective I think the Jazz would be a rather attractive option with a relatively young team looking to take the next step and really would have all ready if not for their lack of a pg. The only place I'd rather go from a purely basketball perspective than Utah is San Antonio and maybe Indiana. There aren't really any big market teams that need a pg and are in a position to contend. I assume CP3 would prefer contending over going to another big city (otherwise he'd just stay in LA) .

I guess maybe the Knicks could make sense since Rose is a FA next summer. But I don't think they'd be as good of a team as Paul on the teams I previously mentioned nor have the assets to make an attractive offer for him and still be attractive.

22 Aug 2016 00:12:58
Yeah they might be good @NBA, I'm not saying that. But really could they get past San Antonio, Golden State and Cleveland? No. He'd have to go to a team with top 10 talent in a bigger market. He's proven he's not into smaller markets, and Utah is even smaller than New Orleans.

22 Aug 2016 21:45:54
I will pass least not at that price
Can't give George Hill, Alex Burks and
Jazz pick round 1 in 2017
Warriors 2nd rd pick in 2017
OKC 1st rd pick in 2018

I stop at the OKC pick in 2018! Reason
No Durrent this season and after this season maybe no Westbrook therefore making that OKC round 1 pick in 2018 could be sweet pick.

21 Aug 2016 08:13:23
CHI get Westbrook

OKC get Rondo and Butler.

21 Aug 2016 16:30:20
OKC says no. Obviously.

21 Aug 2016 02:40:14
Hard to see the Cavs trade Love this offseason with a championship this past year. But an ideal scenario that is not being discussed is a move to OKC to team with his old teammate Westbrook who needs a new running mate.

OKC has Kanter to offer in a potential Love deal, but I don't see Cleveland wanting him. Buuuuut, a three team deal could work out for everyone. Two teams that could fit in a 3 team trade where Love goes to OKC is Boston and Portland.

Boston has lots of assets plus Al Horford. Putting Kanter next to Horford could work well bc of Horford's defense and range. They could possibly offer up Johnson's contract to make money work plus multiple nice pieces to help Cleveland. With KD going to the Warriors, maybe Cleveland likes the idea of adding a Jae Crowder to help with defense.

Portland wanted Kanter when they signed him to an offer sheet before OKC matched. Portland has tons of high priced wings entering the season. They'll need to fix the logjam when they become trade eligible. A player like Allen Crabbe could fit great on a Cavs team. It would also allow them to officially rule out a JR Smith reunion.

Any chance either of these deals happen?

21 Aug 2016 16:31:19
Absurd ideas.

21 Aug 2016 19:14:06
Portland already has too many bigs. The "tons" of wings Portland has is 4. That's not a ton, that's how many you need. Portland already has 4 guys that can play center (ezeli, plumlee, Davis, Leonard), and a ton of PFs.

As for Boston, crowder>>>>>Kanter. Maybe they consider a future non-nets first and one of their mid firsts from this draft, but not much more.

18 Aug 2016 10:52:15
Thunder kings

Thunder receives

Kings receive

18 Aug 2016 12:45:25
We don't want Gay.

18 Aug 2016 13:10:55
Nobody wants Gay. Horrible contract, and an ok player.

18 Aug 2016 16:07:23
Thunderfan02; why don't you guys want Gay? I understand that he isn't a great player but who do you guys have that will be able to score other than Westbrook? Who do you guys have that can space the floor?

I understand that this isn't a great offer for him but I think the Thunder would be a perfect destination for Gay so someone that isn't a defensive specialist can fill Durant's spot.

As of now you have 2 guards who do their best work at driving to the basket with Westbrook and Olidipo. You have A power forward that has range out to about 15 feet in Kanter. A center that is great on defense but isn't a real scoring threat in Adams. Then you have Roberson who is only good at defense and is given the Rubio treatment outside the paint. Gay would be a great addition to that lineup and gives the Thunder someone else who can put the ball in the hoop outside the paint.

18 Aug 2016 16:32:17
Don't be ridiculous, lots of people want Gay. He is a solid player on a reasonable contract. Kings give up too much in this deal. Collision and Koufos are on good deals and are solid players. Kanter is on a bad deal Singler is garbage. Kanter doesn't play defense so he probably doesn't work on a Dave Joeger team. The trade doesn't work but not because of Gay.

18 Aug 2016 18:43:01
I think Gay would be a good low risk move for Thunder since I don't think his price is all that high and his contract isn't bad and he only has a player option after this season. He is better than any sf the Thunder have and I think he'd give Thunder back some of the scoring they lost with Durant.

I think Kings are giving up a bit much to get Kanter especially when they are set at pf and center. I think Thunder should give up Singler, Morrow and a highly protected 1st or pair of future 2nds in return for Gay.

18 Aug 2016 04:15:43
Okc - kings

Gay to okc
Singler, Morrow, Ersan to Kings

Okc - Clippers

Blake to okc
Kanter, Payne and 2017 first round to LA

Russ, price
Oladipo, Roberson
Gay, Abrines
Blake, Sabonis
Adams, Johnson

Or OKC waits next year to see if they can sign 2 big free agents and dumb money off.

18 Aug 2016 06:11:31
I think the first deal is good, but I don't think the Clippers will trade Blake for that package in the second. Kanter is a pretty good starter, Payne is potentially a good PG, but currently a backup who logged very few minutes late in the season (I didn't follow OKC that close so idk if there was an injury or something or if he just didn't get minutes), and a 1st round pick that would like be mid to late 20's with a core of Westbrook, Griffin, Gay, Olandipo, and Adams.

18 Aug 2016 06:19:59
I think Gay would be a good low risk get for Thunder especially at that price. Not good return for kings as they should want atleast a young piece or some sort of future draft pick.

Don't think that is enough for Blake but I'd love to see he and Westbrook together in OKC.

18 Aug 2016 02:24:35
Ok. I guess I've been offering too much for Rudy Gay

Thunder gets Rudy Gay

Kings get Anthony Morrow, Mitch McGary, and Kyle Singler

Pf. E. Kanter/ E. Ilyasova/ N. Collison
Sf. R. Gay/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ D. Sabonis/ D. Johnson
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Abrines/ D. Hamilton
Pg. R. Westbrook/ C. Payne/ R. Price.

18 Aug 2016 04:03:20
What will kings do with all those players? OKC has to at least add a 2nd rd pick.

18 Aug 2016 04:09:04
I like it for both teams kings want Gay out OKC wants Gay in talk is if Gay ops out he won't get paid more then 12 mill a year i think okc should take it.

18 Aug 2016 05:27:15
Kings say no. Add at least a first to this garbage.

18 Aug 2016 06:02:35
Perfect deal would be


MIL get Morrow and McLemore

SAC get Singler, MCW, 1st from OKC and 2nd from MIL

OKC get Rudy Gay

at least it lessen the Wings logjam of SAC they get a PG and a pick Bucks get some wing guys and OKC get a KD replacement.

18 Aug 2016 06:30:35
That is too little for kings basically giving gay up for nothing. Add a highly protected 1st or something.

18 Aug 2016 06:30:35
That is too little for kings basically giving gay up for nothing. Add a highly protected 1st or something.

17 Aug 2016 07:39:20
Thunder get Rudy Gay

Kings get Domatas Sabonis, 2017 1st Rd pick, and Kyle Singlers bad contract

Pf. E. Kanter/ E. Ilyasova/ M. McGary
Sf. R. Gay/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ N. Collison/ D. Johnson
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Abrines/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ C. Payne/ R. Price.

17 Aug 2016 15:39:24
Wow, that is a kings ransom for Rudy Gay. I think you could get him for singler and a second rounder. No way in hell i'd give up sabonis for him, or include any first round picks.

17 Aug 2016 15:43:16
Dont like for okc. can't give up Sabonis for Gay. Maybe Morrow and Singler but that's it. If not play it out this year next year go after a 3, 4 man.

18 Aug 2016 05:30:33
I don't like for Sac

17 Aug 2016 07:38:27

OKC get Paul Millsap and Ben McLemore

Pg Westbrook/ Chalmers (sign) / Price
Sg Oladipo/ McLemore/ Morrow
Sf Roberson/ Singler
Pf Millsap/ Mcgary
Ce Adams/ Kanter

ATL get Rudy Gay, Domantas Sabonis and Ersan Ilyasova

Pg Shroeder/ Jack
Sg Bazemore/ Korver
Sf Gay/ Sefolosha/ Prince
Pf Ilyasova/ Sabonis/ Scott
Ce Howard/ Splitter/ Muscala

SAC get Cameron Payne, THJ and 1st rd pick OKC and 2nd rd pick ATL

Pg Collison/ Payne
Sg Afflalo/ THJ/ Temple
Sf Casspi/ Barnes
Pf Cousins/ Skal/ Papa
Ce WCS/ Koufos.

17 Aug 2016 14:40:27
You even forgot Abrines on OKC, so that team would be pretty decent.

17 Aug 2016 15:41:28
Sacramento is getting way too much. They're basically trying to give gay away, and no one really wants him. And I think Mclemore could be gotten without giving up a first rounder.

I'm not sure why Sacramento wouldn't just be cut out of this deal if Atlanta is going to deal milsap to OKC.

16 Aug 2016 23:41:03
Kings get Ricky Rubio

Thunder get Rudy Gay

Wolves get Cameron Payne, 2017 OKC 1st, and Kyle Singler

OKC signs Mario Chalmers

PF. E. Kanter/ E. Ilyasova/ M. McGary
Sf. R. Gay/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ D. Sabonis/ N. Collison
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Abrines/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ M. Chalmers/ R. Price.

16 Aug 2016 23:53:26
I can't lie, I really like the deal. I'm just slightly hesitant because the drop off from your backup point guard being Cameron Payne to Ronnie Price is massive, haven't seen anything linking Chalmers with OKC either. Lance instead?

17 Aug 2016 01:21:49
Sabonis and 2017 lottery protected pick.

17 Aug 2016 02:39:03
Kings say no. The Rubio Gay rumors are trolls who know nothing. Kings take Payne and the pick - don't want rubio for gay.

11 Aug 2016 22:22:40
Okc and Utah

Roberson and a 1st rd pick and a 2nd rd pick for Gordan Hayward

Kanter for Faried.

12 Aug 2016 02:14:46
Salary cap.

12 Aug 2016 02:28:28
The Utah trades is a joke right?

12 Aug 2016 04:16:41
Both deals are awful

12 Aug 2016 05:39:52
Why would the thunder do this, they will need scoring most without Durant, not rebounding, westbrook and Adam's can handle the teams full load.

12 Aug 2016 12:39:11
Noel if healthy = Tyson Chandler.

13 Aug 2016 20:01:39
Noel's absolute best case scenario ceiling is Tyson chandler. More likely he's as good as robin Lopez from what I've seen. A top 20 center, but not top 10.

11 Aug 2016 06:21:58
2 Okc trades

1. trade Payne and Singler for Saric and Covington

- Phi gets their PG of the future now they can draft Tatum or Jackson to play the 2 and be complete

Payne - Tatum - Simmons - Noel - Okafor (trade? ) Embiid

2. Trade Kanter and Abrines for Harkless (s&t) Napier and Plumlee

- Gets Blazers an inside presence to play along with Ezeli/ Davis

Lillard - McCollum - Aminu - Kanter - Ezeli

Westbrook - Napier
Oladipo - Roberson
Harkless - Covington
Saric - Sabonis - McGary
Adams - Plumlee.

11 Aug 2016 10:01:34
I'm a blazers fan and I would love this, maybe minus harkless.

11 Aug 2016 11:55:34
While your delusional, Kanter alone is worth more then that package.

11 Aug 2016 13:24:00
I don't see Payne as a PG of the future for anyone. He hasn't really been that impressive when he has played.

11 Aug 2016 14:35:28
Steve Nash didn't either.

11 Aug 2016 15:19:08
I don't think OKC should trade Kanter, he's young, a fan favorite, and he was a key part of beating the Spurs to make the conference finals.

11 Aug 2016 16:25:40
As a thunder fan was does Payne do on the floor that's above average? I'm only going of the games I watched him play.

11 Aug 2016 17:50:43
Sixers would say not a chance. Payne a pg of the future. Ha!

12 Aug 2016 14:11:02
Tthunderfan- if you tell me youd take a guy like rozier from boston or jerian grant for Steven Adams Then I can take you serious.

12 Aug 2016 17:51:28
First of all Philly sees ben simmons as their point guard of the future. And secondly dario is their back up ball handler/ creator at this point. Trading one of those 2 guys is short changing the franchise at this point. It's much better to give away Noel or okafor at this point, because we can see what kind of players they will be already. I know roster Balance is important but the slixers are trying to change that model IMO from positional Balance to one where skill set takes precedence, and they probably think simmons is good enough to be the point guard.
