08 Dec 2016 04:05:50
Thunder get Rudy Gay and Willie Cauley Stein
Kings get Harrison Barnes, Enes Kanter, Alex Abrines, 2017 DAL 1st, and 2017 OKC 1st
Mavs get Demarcus Cousins.
08 Dec 2016 17:01:29
I think its a big win for OKC.
If I'm Kings its alright but I'd want Payne instead of Abrines in order to take on Kanter and his contract who I don't really need but could be helpful. Barnes is young, signed long-term and has played well thus far.
For the Mavs I don't really like it. Cousins is a clear upgrade on Barnes but I don't think either can lead that roster out of the bottom 5 so that pick is going to be pretty valuable so I'd want top 5 protection but even then its a little rich for my taste. Mavs don't have much young talent or talent in general so I think it would be tough for them to deal their best two assets for one guy who could leave in two years and has proven he can't lead a bad team and has attitude issues.
07 Dec 2016 17:17:30
Thunder get Terrence Ross
Blazers get Enes Kanter
Raptors get 2017 Portland 1st (Top 10 Protected)
07 Dec 2016 19:14:55
Portland is over the cap, they can't take on more salary.
07 Dec 2016 08:29:00
Raptors / Thunder Trade
Raptors gets Kanter, Singler, Roberson, and 2017 1st Round Pick
Thunder gets Ross and Valanciunas
This is my first trade idea.
07 Dec 2016 09:36:59
and its bad for the Raptors.
08 Dec 2016 16:33:01
Raptors have a good center they need a good Pf and a defensive center so this trade dose not improve the raptors and JV is one of the better big center in the league just not getting used like one.
06 Dec 2016 01:30:47
Suns get Demarcus Cousins and Cameron Payne
Kings get TJ Warren, Dragan Bender, Brandon Knight, Kyle Singler, and 2017 okc 1st
Thunder get Rudy Gay.
06 Dec 2016 05:40:47
The suns already have a backup guard in Ulis, they don't need Payne. They would probably not trade Warren because he's the only SF on the team.
06 Dec 2016 05:52:23
PJ Tucker will be back, and the better difference between Cousins and Chandler means they can afford to start Dudley for a lil bit.
05 dec 2016 15:16:47
05 Dec 2016 21:47:29
I think if OKC wants McLemore too they will have to add their 2017 1st.
04 Dec 2016 20:08:22
Gay, Koufos, Mirotic, MCW
Singler, McLemore, Papagiannis, okc 1st
Kanter, Abrines, Payne
Thunder get wings, shooting, expiring money for Blake if he opts out, and a replacement backup 5.
Bulls get McLemore who could be a great fit off the bench to spell Wade, plus get a first round pick.
Kings get Payne who they were interested in before he got hurt, a big to put next to Cousins or replace him should he (finally) get moved, and a shooter at a reasonable price.
05 Dec 2016 02:31:02
I don't like the deal for the Kings. Koufos is a solid backup big, and I think Gay alone could get you Payne and Abrines minimally. McLemore and Papagiannis are still young guys they paid too high of a price for to just simply give away. I don't like the Kings getting Kanter as their best asset since he plays their deepest position and they have so many glaring holes elsewhere.
05 Dec 2016 02:59:17
Yeah add more bigs and non shooters, just what we need.
03 Dec 2016 16:44:14
Lakers get Enes Kanter and Josh Huestis
Thunder get Luol Deng, Tarik Black, and 2017 2nd rd.
03 Dec 2016 20:02:47
I think its great value for Lakers to get Kanter although I think he is an awful fit with the team. Kanter isn't the style center that would work well with Randle or Nance. I don't believe this interests the Thunder either unless they're trying to dump Kanter's salary to make a run at Griffin next summer. Deng at this stage of his career isn't going to help Thunder much.
02 Dec 2016 14:37:28
Thunder get Carmelo Anthony
Knicks get Steven Adams, Cameron Payne, Andre Roberson, Alex Abrines, and 2017 1st
Pf. D. Sabonis/ J. Grant/ N. Collison
Sf. C. Anthony/ K. Singler/ J. Huestis
C. E. Kanter/ J. Leveargne/ D. Johnson
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Morrow/ D. Hamilton
Pg. R. Westbrook/ N. Cole (sign) / Christon.
02 Dec 2016 16:00:26
Only way I see melo leaving is to play with LeBron, CP3, or D Wade.
02 Dec 2016 16:53:19
same trade package offered in every trade. awesome.
heres a hint. trading 4 players for 1 never works because guess what. you have to cut 3 players.
Also, perhaps you can come up with a new trade package. One that actually works for the team you trade with. I know its a crazy thought, but just throwing it out there.
Oh. and the knicks say no chance. Just like every team you have offered that trade to.
02 Dec 2016 20:26:53
Eh looking at that current knicks roster they should cut about half of it.
29 Nov 2016 20:39:05
Kings get John Wall
Thunder get Rudy Gay
Wizards get Cameron Payne, Georges Papagiannis, Malachi Richardson, Kyle Singler, 2017 SAC 1st Rd, and 2017 okc 1st rd pick
Wizards are in rebuild. this deal gives them 2 recent lottery picks in Payne and Papagiannis, another 2016 1st rounder in Richardson. a 2017 lottery pick from sac, and another 1st from OKC.
30 Nov 2016 02:46:06
That's not enough for John Wall.
29 Nov 2016 05:11:32
Hornets get Enes Kanter
Thunder get Nic Batun and Spencer Hawes.
29 Nov 2016 10:17:32
No one wants Kanter. He's terrible and grossly overpaid.
29 Nov 2016 11:07:16
I don't think Kanter is a terrible player as long as you realize where his strengths and weaknesses lie and don't try to make him into something he isn't. Dude was among 6th man of the year last year and is only 24 (his pay is high for his likely role however) . He can give you solid post offense and rebounding and is best suited coming off the bench.
That being said Batum is significantly more valuable and Thunder would have to add a considerable piece such as Oladipo for Hornets to consider in my opinion.
29 Nov 2016 13:43:02
Kanter isn't on a bad contract anymore. The cap go's up next year and so do the contracts.
Batum and Kanter have the same value, they're only a different kind of players. Batum can be used by every team, while Kanter is only usefull as a score playing with a great defender on his side.
But Batum has more value for Charlotte than Kanter could have. So i don't see them trading Batum for him.
29 Nov 2016 05:09:14
Wizards get Steven Adams and Andre Roberson
Thunder get Otto Porter and Marcin Gortat.
29 Nov 2016 11:08:42
Gap between Adams and Gortat is probably double that between Porter and Roberson. I don't understand what aspect of this appeals to Thunder who get older and less talented.
29 Nov 2016 02:28:10
OKC gets Paul George, Brandon Knight, Rakeem Christmas
Suns get Brook Lopez, Rodney Stuckey, Alex Abrines, Cam Payne
Pacers get Eric Bledsoe, Victor Oladipo, Andre Roberson, Thunder First, Phoenix First
Nets get Enes Kanter, Dragan Bender, Joe Young, Thunder first
Thunder get their superstar to pair with Westbrook plus a backup point upgrade, Suns have had huge success in brittle stars and add a great one in Lopez, Pacers get a hometown hero and a good return for a flight risk superstar, and Nets flip a oft-injured Lopez for another offensively gifted big and some assets.
29 Nov 2016 07:02:21
OKC have a very slim chance of getting George.
29 Nov 2016 10:19:03
No one wants Kanter. He's terrible and grossly overpaid.
29 Nov 2016 11:13:12
Don't believe Thunder have assets to get George especially if Adams and Oladipo aren't part of the deal. Getting Knight too is simply overkill.
I saw an article about George not wanting to resign but then saw he has 3 years left under contract. Why the concern Pacers have plenty of time before they have to worry about George leaving. As a top 10 talent in his prime not a fan of this return either. Don't view Bledsoe or Oladipo as potential stars (Bledsoe is getting up there in age and can't seem to stay healthy)
29 Nov 2016 13:45:41
I would consider this as a pacers fan if we also get Bender.
30 Nov 2016 22:56:16
Lol i love how every trade that includes Kanter someone comments on it and says he is terrible! Umm how? This dudes defense got 100 times better this year he gets double doubles in 12 to 15 mins. I wouldn't trade Kanter i watch everyone of OKC game this year his hands are ridiculously good, his pick and rolls l, pick and pops are money. Watch him before you say he is terrible, look at his stats for this year lol.
29 Nov 2016 00:07:04
Wizards get DeMarcus Cousins, Ben McLemore, Kyle Singler
Wizards give: Bradley Beal, Marcin Gortat, Kelly Oubre jr, Own 2017 1st, and draft rights to Aaron White
Kings get Bradley Beal, Amir Johnson, Cam Payne, Kelly Oubre jr, Wizards 2017 1st, Celtics 2018 1st, Thunder 2019 2nd, and draft rights to Aaron White
Kings give: DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, Ben McLemore
Celtics get Marcin Gortat
Celtics give: Amir Johnson, own 2018 1st (top 5 protected)
Thunder get Rudy Gay
Thunder give: Kyle Singler, Cam Payne, 2019 2nd.
29 Nov 2016 11:21:03
Thunder-Kings part makes sense. Cs pick is likely late 1st so although I don't think its a huge upgrade I could potentially see it happening.
I think Wizards need to give more to the Kings since although Wizards 1st looks attractive now it will tank in value once they acquire Cousins. Beal is an alright center-piece of the deal and would fit Kings well and open up minutes for their young bigs but I think need to be more supporting elements. Wizards don't have much more assets however (could add Burke, swap porter for Oubre, trade Mahinmi for assets once he is eligible) .
28 Nov 2016 18:09:20

28 Nov 2016 18:25:24
I just don't understand why GS would ever consider trading Klay. They've now won 11 in a row. They look really good. Why trade an unselfish star that doesn't need the ball in his hands to get worse in the short term? For the chance at a high draft pick that MIGHT be good?
28 Nov 2016 21:05:54
K Thompson is a top two shootingguard in the league.
But GS doesn't need him. Bradley is a good replacement. He can shoot the three, he can play defence and he's also a teamplayer. K Thompson is the better player, but the team strength stays the same.
And this trade gives GS some flexibility under the cap next year
And they can draft a talented rookie. Jackson or Gilles or.
So GS could consider this.
28 Nov 2016 22:05:33
That Boston team looks dope af.
But they need to do something for their squad depth.
27 Nov 2016 17:43:43
Celtics get Steven Adams and Andre Roberson
Thunder get Rudy Gay, Amir Johnson, Ben Mclemore, and Terry Rozier
Kings get Jae Crowder and Cameron Payne

27 Nov 2016 17:51:09
Only SAC profits from this.
27 Nov 2016 18:03:56
Roberson doesn't help the Celtics, so Boston would be giving up Crowder and Rozier in exchange for the minimal difference between Adams and Johnson. Boston is a worse team after this trade.
27 Nov 2016 18:16:59
Theres a lot more than minimal difference between Adams and Johnson. there is actually less difference between Crowder and Roberson than adams and johnson.
27 Nov 2016 20:50:18
I'd say the difference is about the same between Adams>Johnson and Crowder>Roberson.
28 Nov 2016 01:49:42
Adams is a great fit for OKC, one of the reasons they are still a playoff contender, as is Crowder for Boston. Neither team can afford to lose them.
28 Nov 2016 15:16:48
Adams is a top 8 center. Johnson isn't a top 15 PF. Roberson is just as good if not better at Crowder on Defense, but Crowder blows him out of the water at the other end.
28 Nov 2016 16:23:43
Sorry, Adams is nowhere near a top 8 center. Not even close.
28 Nov 2016 17:24:22
Adams is a top 8 center?!?
Cousins, KAT, brook lopez, gasol, gasol, whiteside, Drummond, Howard, Valanciunas, Jordan, Gobert are all unquestionably better.
And there's still 5-10 centers that compare with him. I'd put Adams in the same category as Robin Lopez and mason plumlee.
Adams is 19th in scoring, 17th in rebounding, and 21st in blocks among centers.
30 Nov 2016 23:14:09
So Adams is only good if he puts up stats? So when OKC played Miami and Whiteside only had 5 points on Nov 7th doesn't matter! Or when OKC played the Clippers Jordan only had 6 rebounds and 8 points doesn't matter! Or when OKC played the Pistons Drummond had 10 poins, 8 rebounds and played 36 mins doesn't matter?! His defense is ridiculously good on your top bigs bro. So it doesn't matter if he score or rebound he does what he can and that's play D so i do think he is a top 8 center by far.
27 Nov 2016 03:23:13
Thunder get Tobias Harris
Pistons get Enes Kanter and Andre Roberson

Good for Thunder but Pistons wouldn't do it.
26 Nov 2016 20:32:35
Thunder get Brandon Knight
Suns get Cameron Payne, Kyle Singler, and 2017 1st round pick (lottery protected)
26 Nov 2016 21:18:05
why exactly do the thunder need brandon knight. They already have a loaded back court and brandon knight has been playing badly anyway. I don't really see the point.
26 Nov 2016 21:34:50
I think its good value for the Thunder but buller is right Brandon Knight doesn't help solve the Thunders hole at sf.
25 Nov 2016 19:47:07
Thunder get Jabari Parker and John Henson
Bucks get Steven Adams, Andre Roberson, Cameron Payne, and 2017 1st Rd pick
I get that Jabari has star power quality to him, but the Bucks have a log jam at the wing positions and need a defensive Big and a starting quality PG, this deal gives them both along with a great wing defender and 1st rd pick.
This deal gives the Thunder a young star that can help bring them out of mediocrity.
25 Nov 2016 20:57:31
25 Nov 2016 20:58:49
Bucks aren't giving up Parker and especially for that.
25 Nov 2016 21:10:34
This is not a good deal. Bucks would never do this. They have much more of a logjam at the center position than the wing as well, so the reasoning doesn't make sense either.
25 Nov 2016 21:12:21
The only quality wings we have are Jabari, snell, Giannis and Middleton who is out. Beasley doesn't really play like a wing. And the other 3 all play multiple positions, so they aren't limited to the wing.
25 Nov 2016 23:46:14
Maybe Middleton not Parker.
24 Nov 2016 21:40:51
Thunder get Demarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, Aaron Afflalo, and Michael Beasley
Bucks get Steven Adams, Cameron Payne, Ben McLemore, and 2017 OKC pick
Kings get Jabari Parker, Victor Oladipo, Andre Roberson, and Domatas Sabonis
Pf. E. Kanter/ J. Grant/ M. Beasley
Sf. R. Gay/ K. Singler/ J. Huestis

24 Nov 2016 22:27:17
Bucks get robbed that's not with parker.
24 Nov 2016 23:01:43
I really like Adams, but the Bucks should get Cousins themselves if they give up J Parker.
25 Nov 2016 03:57:27
Ya Bucks don't really fit this trade. I think you could find another team that would fit better and value would make more sense for them.
25 Nov 2016 09:15:10
Bucks say no and probably kings as well. They don't want Cousins and gay for parker and oladipo.
24 Nov 2016 18:01:31
OKC UTA TOR WAS
OKC trades: Kanter, Oladipo, Payne, 2017 1st pick
OKC receives Hayward, Ross
UTA trades: Favors, Hayward
UTAH receives: Morris, Oladipo, Porter
TOR trades: Ross, Joseph
TOR receives: Kanter, Payne
WAS trades: Morris, Porter
WAS receives: Favors, Joseph, OKC 2017 first
24 Nov 2016 18:19:34
Jazz lose this deal badly, Washington wins big.
24 Nov 2016 19:17:08
Favors is better than that dude is still young and nightly double double threat. I do think Jazz should shop him since he isn't a great fit with Gobert but I'm confident other teams will offer way better than that (that offer amounts to about Hayward by himself) .
Triangle O sums it up well tho that Jazz lose badly and Washington wins big.
25 Nov 2016 17:01:50
Why would the raptors trade two young good defenders for a back up center.
