Again this is terrible for phoenix, this is a loaded draft, and phoenix will most likely have a top 3 pick. Why trade for a franchise player with only 2 years left on his contract. When you can draft a younger cheaper one, and keep all your assets for other trades. I don't see phoenix giving up anything other then a Miami pick as far as draft picks go.

19 Aug 2017 15:08:51
I don't think it's terrible for Phoenix, but I think they would atleast want top 5 protection on the pick.
I'm not a fan of this for the Cavs or Chicago. Wade looks like he's going to be bought out and Adams is a significant upgrade over Thompson. Bender has nice upside, but he's not even close to being a starter and that starting lineup doesn't have nearly enough shooting in it.
The Bulls are better off with their pick than paying two role players a fairly significant amout of money.4.

why would the knicks do this.

17 Aug 2017 07:43:45
Trades these teams need to make before the 2018 Playoffs!

Lakers : Jordan Clarkson + Luol Deng for Dwyane Wade

Celtics: Jayson Tatum for

Rockets: Trevor Ariza + Tarik Black + Eric Gordon for Carmelo Anthony

Cleveland: Iman Shumpert for Kyle Anderson

OKC: Enes Kanter + Andre Roberson for Dwayne Wade + Cristiano Felicia

Minnesota: Gorgui Deng + Tyus Jones for Greg Monroe + Tyus Jones

NYK: Carmelo Anthony + Joakim Noah for Malik Monk + Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Suns: Eric Bledsoe + Brandon Knight for Dante Exum + 2018 First Round Pick

PHI: Jahlil Okafor + Robert Covington for T.J. Warren + Brandon Knight or
Kent Bazemore

Kings: Kosta Koufous for Wesley Johnson

Bucks : Greg Monroe + Mirza Teletovic for Kent Bazemore + Miles Plumlee

Pelicans: Frank Jackson + 2018 First Round Pick for Tobias Harris

Nuggets: Emmanuel Mudiay + Will Barton + Kenneth Faried for Nicolas Batum

Spurs: Patty Mills + Kyle Anderson + 2018 First Round Pick for Eric Bledsoe

Wizards: Markieff Morris + Kelly Oubre for Keneth Faried

Raptors: Kyle Lowry + C.J. Miles +Serge Ibaka + 2018 1st Round Pick for Kyrie Irving + Iman Shumpert

This last one hurts the most.

17 Aug 2017 07:50:41
almost all are way off.

17 Aug 2017 10:13:08
like which ones.

17 Aug 2017 11:48:35
Can't say for sure, but I tend to doubt that Celtics would be willing to give Tatum away for nothing.

17 Aug 2017 12:00:47
Why would Minnesota want Monroe? And why trade for Tyus Jones when they have Tyus Jones?

17 Aug 2017 16:43:41
Why would the raptors trade there best Pg who's and Allstar and everyone else for kyrie. I laugh at how bad this trade request is maybe a Lowry Powell straight up with a draft pick For kyrie and shumpert.

17 Aug 2017 18:39:54
Knicks give melo and noah for monk and MKG? Yes please.

These are beyond foolish.

17 Aug 2017 22:25:59
Noah's contract is horrible and Monk dropped 50 in NCAA. You are getting another top 10 lottery pick and dumping Noah. For the rebuild.

17 Aug 2017 03:47:24
OKC Thunder X MEM Grizzlies

OKC take C.Parsons & 2nd round pick

MEM take E.Kanter & K.Singler

OKC take a chance on Parsons hope that he become healthy specially come playoff time

G Westbrook-Felton-Christon

17 Aug 2017 17:32:12
so bad for okc.

17 Aug 2017 01:38:41
76ers Get: Enes Kanter, 2018 Bulls 2nd, 2018 OKC 2nd

OKC Get: Jahlil Okafor


76ers finally move Okafor and acquire a player that's far more suited to coming off of the bench.

OKC escape the luxury tax and free up a lot of money for the extensions of Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

17 Aug 2017 18:03:00
love it but take away one or two seconds because okafor is injury prone.

15 Aug 2017 07:20:44
Thunder-Chicago

Thunder get Mirotic st 3yr/21mil

Chicago get Jerami Grant, Singler & 2nd rd pick

Bulls unite Grants and get some help at wings

Thunder get a stretch 4 to start with Adams

15 Aug 2017 09:50:53
Would rather have JaMychal Green than Mirotic. Can't believe both are still unsigned though. I see Mirotic signing with the rockets after a Melo trade. Take Anderson's spot.

13 Aug 2017 08:27:30
4 Team Trade, each team gets....

New York:
Kyrie
Kyle Singler
Doug McDermott

Cleveland:
Eric Gordon
Trevor Ariza
Isaiah Taylor

Houston:
Carmelo Anthony
Ennes Kanter

Oklahoma:
Ryan Anderson
Clint Capela
Richard Jefferson

13 Aug 2017 09:43:01
Pretty hard pass from the Cavs and Rockets.

13 Aug 2017 11:51:05
Wait, what?
The Knicks get Irving without having to give up anything?
I don't think so.

13 Aug 2017 17:49:36
That's ugly for the Rockets. They get the worst of the Anderson for Kanter deal, and then also lose key pieces in Gordon, Capela and Ariza to land Melo. Everyone has talked about the Clippers depth being their downfall recently, what does a stripped down Rockets team like this look any differently.

12 Aug 2017 05:22:22
Okc: will Barton, mudiay,faried
Denver: Kyrie, kanter Chi 2nd round pick via okc
Cle: Wilson Chandler, doug McDermott, gary harris, grant 2018 first rounder via denver

Okc gets a third scoring option
Denver gets a star player
Cleveland gets a solid haul
and a first round pick

12 Aug 2017 05:48:19
I'm not sure why OKC is in this. They get solid young players and give up little of value.

12 Aug 2017 03:35:58
CLE/OKC

CLE get Kyle Singler & Jerami Grant

OKC get Channing Frye

12 Aug 2017 05:26:29
The Cavs are already light at the C and this makes them even thinner. Plus, this deal really doesn't do much for the Cavs. I think they would prefer Frye's expiring over this.

12 Aug 2017 19:58:08
Trade seems so pointless.

11 Aug 2017 10:58:28
Another option for Melo to Houston, with support from OKC

New York get Kanter, Ariza, Singler and picks from both Houston and OKC

Houston get Melo and Christon

OKC get Anderson and Capela

$$$ work

11 Aug 2017 13:15:44
I don't see Houston wanting to give up Capela as well in a Melo deal.

11 Aug 2017 17:12:19
The Rockets just apparently just recently decided they would involve Ariza in a trade. Capela is almost untouchable for the Rockets. They aren't moving him in a trade for Melo.

12 Aug 2017 22:54:28
Why would the Thunder ever be involved in a trade getting rid of Kanter and taking on the monstrosity of a contract that is Anderson?

13 Aug 2017 13:08:20
Houston has to give up something.

I like this for OKC.

10 Aug 2017 22:19:19
Cavs get thomas (with extension) crowder Ariza Gordon
Celtics get Irving o'quinn 1st
Rockets get melo shumpert frye 2nd
Knicks get Anderson Morris Jefferson Taylor 2nd

Cavs get McDermott
Thunder get felder Tavares 2nd

Sign Ellis bogut plumlee

Thomas rose Calderon
Crowder gordon Ellis
James ariza korver

Thompson plumlee bogut

12 Aug 2017 22:52:36
Huh?
Why are the Thunder involved in this insane cup of soup helping the Rockets and Cavs get better?

10 Aug 2017 14:16:20
SAS- Enes Kanter, 2018 1st (Lottery protected)
OKC- Lamarcus Aldridge

10 Aug 2017 16:55:11
I don't like it for the Spurs. I think waiting out Aldrige's contract and going after free agents would be better than taking on Kanter, who is a worse player and is on a longer contract. The pick is going to be fairly low, I don't think this helps them in the short or long term.

11 Aug 2017 00:17:20
I don't like it either but i think Pop can make Kanter a better player.

10 Aug 2017 14:06:42
A few Nuggets moves just for fun.

First.

Denver gets Klay Thompson, Looney, McCaw
GSW get Wilson Chandler, Murray, Harris, 1st rounder
***GSW can't keep everyone together forever and Klay seems to be the star that would be the odd man out. This is a great return for them.

Next.

Denver gets Jordan Clarkson
Lakers get Jameer Nelson, Will Barton
***Lakers want cap room for next summer. If they strike out on the big names, Barton at lest still has potential.

Then.

Denver gets Kyle Singler, 2nd rounder (CHI)
Thunder get Trey Lyles
***Thunder could use another big and Denver could use the asset.

With these moves, Denver puts together a really nice team to compete in the West.

Clarkson, Mudiay, Morris
Thompson, Beasley, McCaw
Looney, Singler
Milsap, Faried, Arthur
Jokic, Plumlee

Thoughts?

10 Aug 2017 14:27:07
Clarkson isn't a starting pg (he's better at the two or a combo guard off the bench) and I don't see the Nuggets being willing to give up both Harris and Murray in any deal. One of the two would be best case scenario.

10 Aug 2017 05:48:15
OKC/IND/ATL

OKC get Thad Young & Mike Dunleavy

IND get future OKC 1st & Marco Bellineli (exp)

NYK-HOU-OKC-MIN trade

New York gets- Zhou Qi, Cole Aldrich, Kyle Singler, Doug McDermott, Alex Abrines, Semaj Christon, Josh Huestis, Isiah Taylor, Shawn Long, 1st rd pick (HOU), 1st rd pick (OKC), 2nd rd pick (MIN)

Houston gets- Carmelo Anthony

Oklahoma City gets- Ryan Anderson

Minnesota gets- Kyle O'Quinn


Whats your thoughts?

07 Aug 2017 14:19:21
OKC can't take on Anderson's contract unless they add more salary, likely in the form of Kanter. Anderson wouldn't be an awful fit in OKC if it didn't take much more than Kanter to get him.

Trade is as good as Knicks are going to get from Rockets. Minnesota part I'm not sure is completely necessary but O'quinn is cheaper and better than Aldrich.

07 Aug 2017 14:59:17
I run all trades through trade machine so I know salaries work and the O'Quinn was just so they could get another draft pick.

07 Aug 2017 15:18:40
I don't see OKC being willing to part with all that for Ryan Anderson. Kanter would have to be involved for this to make any sense for them. I also don't see why they would add a pick. Andersons contract isn't very easy to move. If anyone should get a pick it's OKC.

08 Aug 2017 00:47:12
Knicks geting bums and not enough picks. jaws, Harden for Noah and since that is good as it going to get from NY.

08 Aug 2017 01:25:23
Shizzee the Knicks would take this in a second. There aren't any ridiculously bad contracts and there are a 4 or 5 solid assets in that mix.

08 Aug 2017 01:57:30
Noah for that package, once again Cleveland will be the bottom feeder after this yr.

08 Aug 2017 01:59:32
Aldrich for O'Quinn is garbage. I don't want to wait 4 yrs for 1st.

09 Aug 2017 00:12:07
Terrible trade this is the type of trade to get Kevin love not Ryan Anderson!

10 Aug 2017 14:22:23
Why in the world are the thunder giving up so much this is stupid.

05 Aug 2017 07:21:51
OKC/ORL

OKC get Nikola Vucevic

ORL get Enes Kanter , Terrance Ferguson & future 1st round pick

05 Aug 2017 10:36:25
Vucevic is a very good and underrated player but I don't think he'd have that much value to Thunder since they wouldn't really be able to play him and Adams together. I'm not entirely certain what his value is like in this new market which seems to value bigs quite low but he is only 26 and signed cheap for 2 more years. Although he is more of an offensive big he isn't awful defensively and is a good rebounder with some range on his jump shot. Magic should probably be shopping him to see if they can add some young talent. In a vacuum this trade wouldn't be terrible but Magic may be able to get more.

05 Aug 2017 18:35:52
That's not a bad trade for Orlando. They can use extra draft picks.

Can't see OKC doing that. Vucevic is slightly better then Kanter, but they're similar players. so i wouldn't give up a draft pick for saving money on a cheaper contract.

05 Aug 2017 20:27:35
Like the trade but not sure it works well. Thunder don't have a starting PF. Kanter and Adams can't both start and trading for Vucevic will put them in the same situation no starting PF.

04 Aug 2017 10:55:52
NYK-OKC-MIL

NYK
Out: Porzingis, Noah, Lee
In: Parker, Monroe, Hawes, McDermott, Grant, 2022 1st rd pick

OKC
Out: Adams, McDermott, Grant, 2022 1st rd pick
In: Noah, Porzingis

MIL
Out: Parker, Monroe, Hawes
In: Adams, Lee

New York does this to get rid of Noah and Lee's 3 more years of guaranteed contracts at the expense of Porzingis. In return receive potential all-star talent in Parker. All they receive are expiring contracts.

04 Aug 2017 11:20:39
OKC does this to have their 3rd scorer although they would have the 2 worst contracts in the league with Kanter and Noah.

MIL does this to get their post presence which suits their young core.

Follow-up trade for NY maybe on the trade deadline if they are still no takers for Melo..

NYK-LAL

Melo for Clarkson, Randle

Bring the banana boat to Lakers in 2018.

NYK
Ntilikina, Sessions
THJ, Clarkson, McDermott
Parker, Grant, Thomas
Randle, Hawes
Hernangomez, Monroe
+ lots of caps space next season

04 Aug 2017 12:11:26
Lord no from the Knicks. They get a broken prospect and some dead weight and a pick 8 years away for porzingis? Oh they drop Noah's contract. Amazing.

04 Aug 2017 19:44:22
The bucks aren't going to sell that low on parker.

04 Aug 2017 23:14:22
I actually don't hate Bucks adding Adams for Parker especially when you consider what you'll have to pay Parker to keep him around after this season (likely a max assuming he doesn't suffer another major injury) . No Adams isn't as good as Parker pre-injury (but Parker isn't likely to be as good as he was pre-injury) but he is a great fit with the Bucks and gives them what they need as a big interior force that can rebound and defend. Adams is also young enough at 24 to grow with that young Bucks team. Better yet they could try and nab Porzingis for themselves. Porzingis, Maker and Giannis would make a freakish front court.

Great value for Thunder.

Hate for the Knicks. Not sure why they want to clear salary space so bad (their recent history shows they don't spend it well and without Porzingis why would any top free agent want to go there) . Parker is a risk that I wouldn't want as my primary return if I were giving up Porzingis especially when a primary motivator is to free salary space but Knicks would have to pay Parker probably the max in RFA this summer in order to keep him.

03 Aug 2017 02:21:10
For Mr. Pugh

OKC get Melo O'Quinn Favors Teletovic

In case George Melo Westbrook bolt, OKC has all the cap space to retool or all cap space to keep them together.

Westbrook/Felton/Christon
Roberson/Abrines/Ferguson
George/Grant/Huertis
Melo/Teletovic/Collison
O'Quinn/Favors/Johnson

NY get Adams Henson Korver

Building a frontcourt depth that will haunt smaller teams with shot blocking, rebounding and defense.

Sessions/Ntilikina/Baker
Lee/Dotson/Randle
Hardaway/Thomas/Korver
Porzingis/Henson/Kornet
Adams/Hernangomez/Noah

Utah get Kanter Singler

Utah twin towers look will give Jazz different offensive option beyond Hayward with a creative pg like Rubio.

Rubio/Exum/Neto
Hood/Mitchell/O'Neale
Ingles/Johnson/Sefolosha
Kanter/Bolomboy/Jerebko
Gobert/Bradley/Udoh

Bucks get Burks Kuzminkas
Bucks improve future cap space to decide on who to resign or bring 1 more star FA for Giannis

Brogdon/Dellavedova/Lewis
Middleton/Burks/Payton
Giannis/Snell/Vaughn
Parker/Wilson/Kuzminkas
Monroe/Maker/Hawes

03 Aug 2017 04:54:44
Dellavedova for Leonard
Blazers are overload at pf only have 1 backup unreliable backup. Bucks will need bigs who can shoo t and run.

Brogdon/ Burks/ Lewis
Middleton/ Payton/ Vaughn
Giannis/ Snell/ Kuzminkas
Maker/ Parker/ Wilson
Monroe/ Leonard/ Hawes.

03 Aug 2017 05:14:28
I could understand Thunder trying to get Melo but not that big a fan of them dealing Adams to do so (O'quinn is a solid backup and Favors is good but he hasn't been healthy in awhile) . If they did I think they should minimally getting more back (you forgot about Patrick Patterson who is their incumbent starting pf and a very solid stretch 4 that can defend some) .

Although Knicks would probably prefer a perimeter player adding Adams would be a great return for the Knicks and Henson although a little redundant wouldn't be a terrible addition. Isn't Korver still on Cavs?

Utah is currently employing the twin towers approach and has done so for past few years with guys like Okur, Millsap, Jefferson, Favors, Gobert and even Kanter. They traded Kanter away and I doubt they want him back since he was very unhappy and basically requested a trade. Favors is a better player than him and paid less so I don't understand why they'd give him and a solid role player in Burks up for two inferior players.

Bucks are in the luxury so I could understand them making this move from that perspective but it isn't going to clear enough cap space to make a significant difference. If they waived rights of their FA they could have close to 20 mill but I doubt they let Parker go without seeing his market first in RFA so that would lower them to about 10 mill if they kept his rights. Not really enough to add another star unless they worked out some funky sign and trade offer.

03 Aug 2017 05:48:59
Jaw meant McDermott not korver. did drop the ball on Patterson no need for teletovic. Kanter being healthier is a big edge over Favors and a Post scorer something neither favors or gobert is. Thunders sight on being able to keep Westbrook, value more than keeping either big. Keeping him is based on keeping George Melo adding 4th big name could make difference. Cap is 104. Currently 2018 is at 71mil with my trade 64 mil. Now dump Burks Dellavedova with Parker for expiring of Wade. Bulls consider taking a chance to fill their void at SF with Parker. Kidd is equally good in front office as coach as he was as player. Wish I say the same for players. ISIAH.

03 Aug 2017 14:16:28
Appreciate the shoutout! Just can't see us moving Adams unless it's a younger, more locked in star. He's very valuable.

03 Aug 2017 14:55:37
It's moot, since Anthony is refusing to go to any team except Houston.

03 Aug 2017 22:23:08
decent but swap out adams for abrines fergason 1 pick and okc don't get favors.

09 Aug 2017 00:14:47
Take out Adams and McDermott and add Grant and some other small things and that's a good deal.

02 Aug 2017 20:46:21

02 Aug 2017 22:16:17
Even after these moves I think Knicks would still have a tough time making the playoffs and don't really free-up any cap space to improve. I think they'd be better off keeping Ntilikina and seeing what he has and keeping their pick which should end up a top 10 pick again. They can try to move Noah next offseason when he'll be easier to move.

Melo would be a great pickup for the Thunder. My only sticking point would be that the picks the Thunder are giving up would have to have decent protections since in the event Westbrook, George and Melo (player option) all leave the Thunder would quickly become one of the worst teams in NBA and the value of those picks would skyrocket.

For Atlanta I think its a solid move. Schroeder is easily their best player but I think adding Ntilikina and potentially another lotto pick is more than fair compensation for him even when Noah's contract is factored in (Based on outgoing salaries ATL isn't even adding salary with this trade and neither Schroeder or Bazemore were going to do much for them anyway) . The Hawks are weak at center and Kanter is at least young and only signed for like two more years.

03 Aug 2017 02:34:13
Noah is staying and not trading picks. okc can't trade those pics. Can someone ban this guy. Porzingis is center. Hernangomez is his backup. Defense struggle with them together with weak perimeter players.

09 Aug 2017 00:19:41
Not a big fan of giving up kanter or McDermott give grant instead of McDermott and add more prospects like dakari huestis along with grant and singler and maybe some other d leaguers with some promising upside bc I don't think it's worth it to give up kanter or McDermott for melo when his value isn't even that good.

09 Aug 2017 00:22:19
It may work for me to give up kanter if oquinn is involved but New York doesn't want that contract.
And my reasoning for singler it helps level out salaries and his salary isn't that bad as people thinks and maybe what he needs a change of scenery and he could become a quality off the bench role guy like he was in Detroit.
