Thunder-Kings (if Gay opts in)
Thunder get Rudy Gay and Kosta Koufos
-Get the scoring wing they need. Oladipo could move to 6th man
Kings get Enes Kanter, Kyle Singler, and Doug McDermott
-Get more youth, shooting, and a scoring prescense down low in the post.
29 Apr 2017 18:22:06
this is a great trade for the Thunder but i think the Kings would want Roberson instead of another Center, they already have Skal Cauley-Stein and PapaGanis.

Okc Griffin max deal
Clippers kanter opilipo 2 picks
27 Apr 2017 18:09:28
Re-sign Russell Westbrook 5 year MAX
Re-sogn Taj Gibson
Sign Blake Griffin 4 year MAX
IND - OKC

OKC get: Paul George (s&t) and Monta Ellis
27 Apr 2017 18:30:23
They have no cap space to sign Griffin.
27 Apr 2017 18:30:41
27 Apr 2017 19:32:00
OKC need to dump salary if they plan on keeping Westbrook.
Trade Adams to Bos for 2018 Boston's 1st rd. pick and 2 2017 2nd rd. picks and Jordan Mickey.
27 Apr 2017 07:50:35
Thunder get C.Anthony & K.Oquinn
Knicks get J.Crowder
Celtics get S.Adams & K.Singler
27 Apr 2017 11:58:10
If I'm OKC, I'd maybe rather have Crowder than Melo.
27 Apr 2017 19:02:07
Don't know why OKC would do this, they are over the cap with Adams and Singler already and Melo would put them 20 mil more over the cap.
But as a C's fan I would love to see this deal, Then flip Singler for a second rd. pick or a truck load of balls.
27 Apr 2017 07:09:31
Thunder acquire C.Anthony & K.Oquinn
I think Melo & Westbrook could work very well together & with the support of Adams & Oladipo , they can contend and go deeper into playoffs
Knicks acquire E.Kanter , A.Roberson , D.McDermott & 21st pick
They have 2 young front court guys but Kanter could be a nice rotational player. They could deal him at the deadline if it doesn't work out. They get 2 young wing players that could grow with Zinger
27 Apr 2017 13:00:22
An overpriced big man that plays no defense and the having the worst 3 position in league history. Makes a lot of sense. Knicks better off cutting melo than what they get back.
26 Apr 2017 22:58:27

26 Apr 2017 23:52:05
OkC is over the cap.
27 Apr 2017 00:28:17
no they can go into luxury tax and they will be fine.
27 Apr 2017 02:37:24
rkenne is correct, the Thunder are already over the cap next year, and you have them adding another $40M - $50M worth of salary. There is a cap you know.
26 Apr 2017 22:14:15
Knicks get Allen Crabbe, Al-Farouq Aminu, Doug McDermott, Kyle Singler, and #21 pick (via Thunder)
Thunder get Carmelo Anthony, Kyle O'Quinn, and #26 pick (via Blazers)
Blazers get Enes Kanter, Courtney Lee, and #58 pick (via Knicks)
26 Apr 2017 23:00:15
Pass from Portland. I'd rather pay crabbe than kanter, at least crabbe isn't the worst defender in the NBA. Also, kanter and Nurkic wouldn't work together.
Lee and Aminu is probably a push, though I'd take the defensive guy in Aminu.
27 Apr 2017 01:23:13
I think POR should consider that, Kanter will be their main guy of the bench to back up Nurkic, Courtney Lee can provide a spark off that bench too.
26 Apr 2017 17:37:42
Toronto gets George
Indiana gets Kanter, Singler, wright, Sabonis, Siakam, Grant, 3 1st from Toronto, and 3 swaps.
OkC gets Carroll, Young, and Miles
Toronto ends up with a player that can help them take the next step. They end up with a top 3 starting line up.
Indiana gets a ton of young talent and picks to start a rebuild. There isn't a sure fire star there, but the Pacers seem to have a good track record of developing young talent and they end up with a lot.
OkC surrounds Russell with the shooters he needs. The team could end up similiar to what Houston currently has.
26 Apr 2017 20:10:51
There's obviously other teams besides Toronto who would want george. All of them could put together a better package.
26 Apr 2017 15:58:20
Okc gets - Carroll Wright and Nogeuira
Tor gets - McDermott and Kanter
Okc drafts Dwayne Bacon
Tor drafts Terrance Ferguson
Westbrook - Wright
Oladipo - Roberson
Carroll - Abrines
Gibson - Sabonis
Adams - Nogeuira
Lowry - Joseph
Powell - Ferguson
Derozan - McDermott
Ibaka - Kanter
Valancuinas - Poeltl
26 Apr 2017 22:48:36
hate it as okc fan.
26 Apr 2017 04:24:35
OKC get Melo Noah Clip. & Griz 2019
Knicks get Oladipo Crowder
Celtics get Kanter
26 Apr 2017 04:54:35
New York getting too much.
26 Apr 2017 05:24:43
All around bad trade.
26 Apr 2017 06:27:48
I think Melo would be a good fit in OKC, filling hole that persists from Durant leaving. However, don't think they'd be interested in giving up Oladipo for him. Celtics certainly wouldn't give up Crowder for Kanter; Kanter is not only a worse player but his contract is much worse and would put them out of the running to try and sign Hayward in offseason and other potential moves to get a star.
26 Apr 2017 14:13:56
Exactly Jaw. It's not a bad get for OKC, it's a great move for NY, but it's a terrible trade for the Celtics.
26 Apr 2017 16:25:01
Take Crowder out of the deal and Boston might take a flyer on Kanter as a lower-rotation big.
26 Apr 2017 17:45:31
Boston gets screwed in that deal. Lmao.
23 Apr 2017 15:50:02
Blazers get: #3 overall pick
If sixers get picks 3 and 4(all that needs to happen is the draft order flip flops 3 and 4, sixers get both). Blazers shed a huge contract amd get a top 3 pick(Josh Jackson maybe?) in a loaded draft they cam secure for 4 or 5 years at a low cost. Lillard and McCollum may be fun to watch, but that combo isn't going to win you any playoff series. I think portland may package their other 3 first rounders to move up and get another top 10 pick or future first rounders to spread the picks out over a few years. Maybe sixers take back another contract from blazers for salary relief. Sixers get a perfect compliment to simmons.
Sixers get:picks 8 and 10
Kings get:pick 4,36,and 39
Sixers take Markannen at 8 and Ntilikna at 10
Sixers sign pateick patterson as backup pf
Still have all own picks, 2019 kings unprotected #1, 2020 OKCs protected #1, a bizillion second rounders, and 19 year old sg Korkmaz in Europe.
23 Apr 2017 16:10:33
The 2nd trade seems reasonable, but Mccollum is worth more than the third pick. Why would Portland give up a young player who is a borderline allstar for a player who might not pan out.
23 Apr 2017 18:33:21
Rrkenne16.using that logic an established player would never be traded for a top lottery pick. It happens for team fit, salary, potential and player control reasons to name a few. I also added that philly may need to take back a contract to entice portland to do the deal.
23 Apr 2017 19:11:22
Young stars rarely get moved unless they won't resign. Mccollum is locked up long term. Cj put up 23 on 48 percent from the field. You make him fit, because it's going to be next to impossible to replace that kind of production. He's 24, been in the league for only 4 years, and has improved a ton the past two years. They have 3 mid to late first round picks this year if they want to clear capspace and multiple large contracts they could move. They are a young playoff team. They are more likely to try and add a star player rather than move one for a pick. Unless they are getting a guaranteed star in return or a huge package of young players and picks there is no reason to move him.
24 Apr 2017 00:18:07
I don't think the value is terrible but it doesn't make sense for a young team on the rise to trade an proven young player like McCollum for a draft pick who could end up a complete bust. They do have salary issues but those can be solved without having to deal McCollum.
20 Apr 2017 21:25:28
Suns - Thunder
Suns gets: Kanter, Singler, 21st pick
Thunder gets: Chandler, Knight
20 Apr 2017 18:39:35
Houston gets pick #21 and Kyle Singler
OKC gets Ryan Anderson
20 Apr 2017 20:07:29
Ryan Anderson is the perfect fit for how Houston plays, not giving him up for Singler and 21.
20 Apr 2017 23:59:07
I'm not sure what cap situation looks like but only way I see this happening is if someone like Millsap says he'd sign in Houston. They'd have to have a reason to clear this cap space with a player in mind since value alone they aren't getting enough.
20 Apr 2017 18:31:20
Cle - Bos - Okc - Brk 4 way trade
Cle - Brook Lopez
Bos - Kanter
OKC - Love
Brk - jerebko, Zeller, singler, 2017 OKC 1st, 2019 Mem 1st (from Boston)
Cleveland gets a big who can play in the post, stretch the floor, and offer some interior defense. I'd consider Lopez a more well rounded big man than love at this point in their careers.
Boston gets some bench support to help relieve their offensive struggles when Thomas is off the court.
OKC gets a sharpshooting stretch four which they desperately need.
Brooklyn absorbs some salary in exchange for draft picks.
20 Apr 2017 18:53:40
If Boston wants to let go of Zeller and Jerebko (which the Celtics probably do), they just let them walk away. They aren't going to give up two first-round picks for nothing.
20 Apr 2017 19:21:40
Boston is only giving up 1 1st round pick. And kanter has his problems but I wouldn't call him nothing.
20 Apr 2017 19:47:26
Boston would only be giving up 1 pick. And Zeller has a non- guaranteed for 8 mil and Jerebko will be a UFA. Kanter is a defensive liability and doesn't fit in a Stevens system, especially at that price tag. They would much rather just trade with OKC for Adams.
20 Apr 2017 20:15:00
Clevelands not giving up Love for Lopez. It doesn't make them better and Lopez is older.
21 Apr 2017 00:36:31
Boston can still sign a superstar with Kanter's salary on the books. Kanter also has a player option following the 2017-2018 season, when IT and Bradley become free agents. So If things don't work out, then Kanter can walk and Boston will have the cap space to sign their stars. Kanter might be a liability on defense but Boston desperately needs his offense. IT won't be able to carry the same load he did this year. Having Kanter come off the bench would be a huge help.
Lopez is only 5 months older than Love so age shouldn't be considered in that deal. Lopez is top 10 in the league in blocks and he can do everything love can do on offense and more. Lopez can create from the blocks with nifty hooks and floaters.
21 Apr 2017 14:58:32
Most metrics have Love ad a better defender, Love is a far better rebounder, Love spaces the floor better, Love is the better passer, and Love is the better overall scorer. Love would be putting up atleast 25 13 and 4 on that garbage Brooklyn team. The Cavs would be better off trading Love for Robin Lopez.
20 Apr 2017 14:59:09
Thunder get Blake Griffin s&t
Clippers get 2017 1st rd pick, Domatas Sabonis, and Enes Kanter
20 Apr 2017 15:31:53
1st. This won't happen, blake is staying in LA.
2nd. It won't happen because it can't. OKC is already above the cap for next season. This sign and trade would only give the clippers $20.4 million in return. If it's a sign and trade its for a max contract. I believe the max contract is now at around $30 million a year. For this to happen, OKC would have to throw in more.
3rd. Why would the Clippers want Kanter? To play no defense? This sounds more like an oklahoma fan who wants the hometown hero back and is tired of the kanter experiment.
20 Apr 2017 15:47:06
I don't think OKC has the assets for a Griffin trade
I really like Sabonis, but Kanter is not what the Clippers want.
20 Apr 2017 17:21:41
They could always just try to sign him this summer and not deal with LA at all. Just a thought.
20 Apr 2017 17:50:10
Honestly, this all up to Ballmer, Doc is playing the LBJ game by asking the owner to screw the cap and go for a title. Clippers are not near the Cav's level. I see them blowing up the team if they don't make it out of the first rd. Time will tell. If Blake can be healthy and play 70 games next year and the year after Philly would be a good place for him.
17 Apr 2017 18:45:40
if we had to trade Lopez.
BKLYN sends Lopez and Kilpatrick
OKC sends - Kanter and A. Abrines (SG)
Plus a swap of 1st round picks
#27 for #21
Giving BKLYN picks 21 and 22
then they can pick H. Giles (Duke)
and Kurucs or J. Jackson
17 Apr 2017 21:16:32
Brooklyn should want to trade Lopez as he will be entering the final year of his contract and likely to leave. Considering they are also giving up Kilpatrick this isn't that great of a trade. I think it would be more even if they just got #21 instead of a swap.
20 Apr 2017 21:16:36
Like this trade a lot for both sides. Brooklyn gets two young young players and a higher first round pick.
Thunder get Lopez who can apparently hit threes now.
17 Apr 2017 16:55:32
Sixers give McConnell, Okafor, 2 2nd rounders this year, and a 2020 1st rounder (OKC)
Cavs give Kevin Love
After what seems is going to be a dissappointing year for the Cavs, they won't have any cap space or draft picks to retool the lineup around Lebron and Kyrie. This trade frees up cap space while giving them a back up playmaker, and a scoring big off the bench. And okafors post game would be better utilized in the half court sets the Cavs run. Then they'll be able to use the 2nd rounders to look for talent at other positions, and cut them for no guaranteed money if they fail.
For the sixers, this trade gives them an established player who FAs might want to come play with. (Maybe he gets a gordon hayward to sign here) He also is a rebounding, transitional, stretch 4 who would fit perfect with our team. Out in transition we would have players such as simmons, saric, love and embiid who all like to initiate and then we draft guards who can shoot and play off ball in the draft. Hopefully we get the lakers pick.
17 Apr 2017 17:25:56
This doesn't free up cap space for Cleveland, as they're way over the cap.
And this seems bad for Cleveland. I wouldn't give up an all star for that meager return.
17 Apr 2017 21:20:50
It would take significantly more to get Love. Dude is still an all-star and has significant value. Draft picks, especially ones in 2020 aren't attractive to a team like the Cavs and their cap situation is bad enough that moving Love doesn't really help especially when you aren't getting comparable talent in return.
18 Apr 2017 19:08:35
That's terrible for the Cavs. Unless Simmons, Embiid, or their current first is involved the Cavs would hang up the phone quick. The only piece they get in this trade that even interests them is Mcconell. The 2 2nds could be bought for cash, the first is to far out and might not even be high, and Okafor doesn't help the Cavs at all. The Cavs get significantly worse with this trade.
15 Apr 2017 03:00:03
Kristaps Porzingis skip the exit meeting with Knicks management today because of frustration due to all the " drama and dysfunction" with the Knicks organization. that's a very unhappy unicorn. Jackson just renewed his contract to be the leader of the knicks for 2 more years. Something is going to give. NY tabloids are going to have a field day. Knicks go into total rebuild mode.
If Sixers land picks #2 and #5.
Knicks get:#2 overall pick, 2019 kings unprotected #1, 2020 OKC protected #1, Okafor, and all second round picks returned from 2017 to 2021(sixers currently own all of them).
Knicks in good shape to rebuild with #2 pick(Ball or Jackson) and #7 pick(Issac, Tatum, Fox, Markannen, or DSJ). Plus kings variable unprotected first in 2019.
Sixers get the ultimate player to pair with Embiid. Use the #5 pick on Monk. Sign Redick to 2 years, 45 mill.
Starters:Embiid, Porzingis, Covington, Redick, Simmons.
2nd Unit: Holmes, Saric, TLC, Monk, McConnell.
15 Apr 2017 07:43:17
It isn't terrible but Porzingis is probably the 2nd best prospect in the NBA behind KAT and a guy you'd love to rebuild around. I don't think Knicks should move him since he is 21yr old and already a borderline all-star while although Ball/ Jackson look like they'll be good pros they could also be complete busts. Similarly the Kings pick appears bound to be top 5 but 2019 is a long ways away and there is no guarantee the player they get is half as good as Porzingis; I'd prefer the proven commodity over the chance to potentially get two good players (highly unlikely any are better than Porzingis who is a generational talent) . I think you are looking too far into things. Things can only improve in NY and if/ once Melo gets moved they'll be able to start a new chapter with their lotto pick (Probably Fox or Smith) and Porzingis as the face of it. Porzingis has no leverage to get himself traded.
Obviously this would be a dream come true for 76ers, not only do they get Lakers pick but theirs moves up to #2. If this happens they'd be wise to explore moves to add pieces that could contribute sooner although keeping Kings pick could pay dividends especially as their current guys get off their rookie deals and salary starts to become an issue.
15 Apr 2017 09:32:39
This could be a good move for the Knicks, but i don't think they trade Porzingis unless they get LBJ or KD.
The Combo Porzingis Embiid, would be unstopable, but Simmons should play PF too, so i'm not sure it's the best move they can do.
15 Apr 2017 16:36:03
Just imagine if the 76ers drafted Porzingis instead of Okafor.
15 Apr 2017 17:20:55
NBA; At the time of the draft, porzingis didn't want anything to do with the sixers. They where as lost as the current knicks are in finding a direction. Obviously looking back Porzingis is an amazing player and Okafor has underachieved to say the least. For the sixers to get picks #3 and #4 only one thing needs to happen, they flip spots 3 and 4 with the lakers. that's not that unlikely. How about offering both #3 and #4 for Porzingis? Then sign Redick and Patterson
C: Embiid, Holmes, Okafor
Pf:Porzingis, Saric, Patterson
Sf:Covington, Luwawa-Cab, Anderson
Sg:Redick, Stauskas, Korkmaz
Pg:Simmons, McConnell, Bayless.
15 Apr 2017 02:00:20
Thunder get Carmelo Anthony
Knicks get Steven Adams and Kyle Singler
I know Adams isn't a superstar but he should be a top 10 center for the next 5-7 years...The Knicks can rest easy knowing that they have their PF/C combo solidified for years to come
Adams is a great anchor for the Thunder and I know that this move gives them a hit defensively but they NEED a legitimate 2nd scoring option for them to have a chance...I would make this deal, start Kanter at center, and try to get a deal on Ibaka to bring him back as the main defensive big...
15 Apr 2017 07:52:29
Melo would be a pretty good fit in OKC, filling that void that is still there from Durant leaving. However, if I'm Thunder I'd prefer to deal Oladipo than Adams. Oladipo would make more sense for Knicks too as they have Porzingis and Hernangomez who look good as big men.
I can't imagine Knicks getting that much for Melo elsewhere, Thunder may want to add pieces and get Lee back to fill Oladipo's void.
The big issue with this trade is whether or not Melo would allow himself to be traded to OKC. Doubt its somewhere he'd want to be but from a basketball perspective I'm not sure there is a better fit for him. His offense is needed and he'd be able to play sf or pf but he wouldn't have to be the #1 option which I think suits him at this point of his career. Roberson and Huestis can handle a majority of the defensive obligations on the wings.
15 Apr 2017 11:25:49
Anthony will squash this deal as soon as he realizes what the Oklahoma nightclub scene is like.
15 Apr 2017 16:05:26
Really supercollider? So now anthony is a major party fanatic? That's why you hate on him now? Go on.
15 Apr 2017 16:14:43
Hernangomez isn't likely to be a starting caliber Center. I like the kid, and he's got talent, but he's more of a rotational bench guy I think. Adams and Porzingis would be a very good combination. I like Oladipo a lot as well, but I think the Knicks would rather Adams.
15 Apr 2017 17:14:30
I wouldn't deal Oladipo for Melo. I really like him in the backcourt with Russ. He is one of the few shooting guards in the league that contribute significantly on both ends and I think he's still getting better. I love him as a 3rd option behind Russ and Melo. I think it would be easier to fill Adams void than Oladipos.
15 Apr 2017 17:21:42
