OKC get Larkins Hardaway Shumpert JaSmith
Knicks get Jackson Lamb Roberson Collison

Pacers get Bargnani Early Antekekounmpo
Knicks get Hibbert G.Hill S.Hill

cut ware and aldrich sign K-mart and S.Jackson

Jackson/Hill/Prigioni
JrSmith/Lamb/S.Hill
Melo/Jackson/Roberson
Collison/Amare/Acy
Hibbert/Dalembert/K-mart

if you going start playing triangle offense for 1st time as team in this league it is better to play with experience players

shizzee


This is literally the worst Knicks post I've ever read. On one hand, you want the knicks to get older, experienced guys. So you take on hibberts terrible contract and an alright pg in Hill(fyi, calderon is as good or better and only out like 2 weeks). So great, got rid of an expiring contract and some young potential talents for a terrible contract and a guy that's as good or worse than the current option. Then, for OKC, you want to get younger people in Jackson(the main point of that trade, who is the same position as hill, and also worse than calderon) and then a couple nothings. For this trade you want to give up everyone on the team under 26. So basically the knicks get 2 players that are worse than their pg who is set to return in 2 weeks, a center that is one of the worst contracts in the league. Sorry, but if he was 4 inches shorter, he wouldn't be in the league. And all this at the expense of EVERY young person on the team and 1 major expiring contract. Just stop it.

Kobe still has it. trade him to a contender


Thunder get Kobe Bryant and Carlos Boozer

Lakers get Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins exp, and Jeremy Lamb



okc
pf. C. Boozer/ P. Jones/ G. Jarrett
sf. K. Durant/ L. Thomas/ A. Roberson
c. S. Adams/ N. Collison/ M. McGary
sg. K. Bryant/ A. Morrow
pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Jackson/ S. Telfair



this deal bails the Lakers out. Lands them a young star power forward and about 10 million in cap space to add pieces around Ibaka not to mention the ton of cap space that they will have anyways.

jbbaby


Ibaka is a lot better then Boozer anyday of the week. and Kobi is not going anywhere. Just posting stuff because you are board.

totellthetruth


No way this works.

As there is now, Durant and Westbrook have a hard time putting up the amount of shots each would like to take. What happens when you add Kobe to that mix?

Warriors get Hibbert Aldrich -healthier center
Pacers get Early Bargnani-exp Calderon
Knicks get Bogut G.Hill

OKC get JrSmith Wallace Aldrich
Celtics get Perkins-exp Shumpert-exp Roberson
Knicks get Green Lamb

Hill/Prigioni/Larkins
Lamb/Hardaway/Antekekounmpo
Melo/Acy/Ware
Green/Amare/Moultrie
Bogut/Dalembert/K-mart

shizzee


So the knicks traded Aldrich twice

gsforever


Even though he's not considered elite, bogut is considered untradeable by the warriors. They consider him their 2nd or third most valuable player behind Steph and maybe klay. The difference of how good the warriors are with him on the court, and how good they are without him is very large

Thunder get Tristan Thompson

Cavs get Reggie Jackson and Nick Collison exp



Reggie Jackson and OKC not agreeing on extension. This deal allows them to slide Ibaka to center and start Thompson at PF.

Cavs are very weak at back up PG. This deal gives them probably the best back up PG. And they get a very solid back up power forward on an expiring deal that has a ton of playoff experience


pf. T. Thompson/ P. Jones/ M. McGary
sf. K. Durant/ L. Thomas/ G. Jarrett
c. S. Ibaka/ S. Adams/ K. Perkins
sg. J. Lamb/ A. Morrow/ A. Roberson

Okc send Adams and Westbrook to Minnesota
Wolves send Wiggins and Rubio to Okc

rubiolo


Okc says no

EU


Lmao OKC says heck no wiggins won't be good for another 3 years

Warriorsalltheway


To all the people that are disagreeing with us you obviously don't know anything. The thunder are trying to win now. Westbrook is a top 5 PG. Adams is a pretty good prospect. While Rubio sucks and wiggins only put up decent numbers at college and he won't really help a contender right now

Warriorsalltheway


^ Rubio does not suck. He finished 2nd in the league in total assists and 1st in total steals last year (4th in assists per game and 2nd in steals per game, 6th in assists percent and 1st in steal percent).

Rubio is not a good shooter nor a finisher at the rim. However, Rubio actually shot the 3 better than Westbrook last year, 33.1% to 31.8%, as well as being a better career three point shooter, 32.3% to Westbrook's 30.5%.

carl006


Yeah so I guess Rubio is better than Westbrook carl006 maybe westy and Durant for Rubio?

Warriorsalltheway


^ pay attention. I never said Rubio was better than Westbrook. You said Rubio sucked so I just provided some numbers that proved you wrong. Then, I pointed out, that despite Rubio reputation as a bad shooter (which is true), he has a higher career 3 point shooting percent than Westbrook.

Don't let facts get in the way of your delusions.

carl006


Well he's about to demand the max and he doesn't deserve it and anyways back to that first trade it makes absolutely no sense for OKC

Warriorsalltheway


Well he's about to demand the max and he doesn't deserve it and anyways back to that first trade it makes absolutely no sense for OKC

Warriorsalltheway


^Idk why that posted twice

Warriorsalltheway


So is Klay Thompson. Doesn't mean he is worth a max deal either. Lots of guys have either gotten max deals who didn't deserve one, like Eric Gordon or Gordon Hayward, or deals that where people think they got too much money. What about the deal Chandler Parsons got. Or Channing Frye.

For however much a player signs for, someone thinks they are worth that money. And at the end of the day, that is all that matters to the team and player.

carl006


Actually this trade would make sense for thunder. Westbrook makes 15 mil a year and takes away shots from the best scorer in the nba. Rubio would provide shots for both wiggins and Durant (which would be scary) and do it for 4 million a year. Even if they extended him they're going to give him less than 15 mil and he would take it. With morrow, Durant, lamb, wiggins, Jackson and Rubio up top the thunder are a better team

jmattes1994


Carl006 this is a completely different scenario between GS/Klay and MINN/Rubio. The league is stacked with PGs and Rubio is lucky to make the top 20. While thompson is a 3&D top 5 SG in a currently weak SG league. It's all about supply and demand. And btw while I know its not the same as the regular season, klay was tearing it up for team USA this summer and has been practically unstoppable this preseason, posting ridiculous numbers in limited minutes. And klay is backed by all of his teammates. Iggy and Steph are practically campaigning to keep the splash brothers together, and bogut took a pay cut last year to allow the flexibility to resign him. While none of rubios teamates are sticking up for him. And @jmattes no that is definitely a worse roster than they currently have

Warriorsalltheway


@warriorsalltheway
To quote my man Carl006, pay attention. I never said better roster. I said better team. Rubio can pass better than Westbrook. You can't deny that. It's a fact. Westbrook is a better player. Yes. But Rubio enhances Durants abilities more than Westbrook. Wiggins is a MUCH better upgrade of talent from Adams (as they are both prospects). And with wiggins and Durant on the floor at the same time, this team is a serous contender for not only this year but for years to come. Westbrooks lack of chemistry IQ along with Scott brooks will hold the thunder under teams like the spurs, cavs, and bulls this year. Not the case with that trade

jmattes1994


Jmattes:
1. Westbrook will help the thunder more than Rubio I don't care if you think Rubio would have more chemistry, Westbrook is simply way better than him.

2. And at least this year, Adams will help The thunder more than wiggins. You can't go into the season with just Perkins at center.

3.Even if they had another center though your comment of how Durant and wiggins are a big time force doesn't make any sense. Wiggins isn't an NBA star, or even a big time scoring threat. Does he have lots of potential? Yes he's probably a future star. But by the time he becomes a star, KD will be gone because he won't win a championship with that roster and he'd sign somewhere else

Minny gets Kendrick Perkins exp, rights to Alex Abrines (Rubios good friend), rights to Tibor Pleiss (huge prospect), and 2015 1st

OKC gets Kevin Martin and Corey Brewer



Minny gets rid of 2 contracts that don't make sense in the direction their team is going and gain 2 good international prospects plus a pick. frees up a lot of wing playing time for Wiggins, Lavine, Muhammed, and Robinson III.


OKC goes into win now mode. bring Martin back for scoring in the hole at the 2. get a capable replacement for Durant, who will also be a valuable bench guy when Durant comes back

jbbaby


How. Who says no????

jbbaby


Jbbaby you know I am good for a no to you. Great for the Thunder not so good for Minnesota. Lots of rights with no guarentees and nobody who will play for them right now. Perkins is not worth his exp to the wolves. But good try.

totellthetruth


Go do scouting on Tibor Pleiss and Alex Abrines. they aren't your typical prospects. Tibor Pleiss will be like Marc Gasol in a couple years. and what do the guaranteed contracts of Brewer and Martin do for Minny right now??

jbbaby


No I agree they are talented Prospects. The most important word is prospects and according to reports they are two to three years away.

totellthetruth


Yep and Jeremy lamb is the next MJ while andre roberson has the potential to be better than throwback Kobe. Lol the thunder have some decent young prospects but you can't start comparing a dude named Tiber to Marc Gasol jbabby

OKC, MIL Trade Idea

Milwaukee gets:
Kendrick Perkins
Reggie Jackson
Jeremy Lamb
2015 first rounder

OKC gets:
Larry Sanders
Brandon Knight
Kris Middleton

Plain and simple. Milwaukee gets future cap relief, a pick, an up and coming starting point, and a prospect. Opens up time for Henson. Provides more talent long-term. For OKC, they can now boast a terrifying three-headed monster in the post with Ibaka, Sanders, and Adams. Knight can fill the Jackson role. Middleton provides valuable depth. They sacrifice to win now.

ChurchPugh


Great deal. Who starts at 2 for OKC tho? Morrow?

jbbaby


It would most likely be Roberson. Might be PJ3 when Durant comes back.

So you say lakers need a true center. Where is that center? Bargs and Aldrich are not true centers. Aldrich is a center but he's not very good

Ahhs10


1. Lakers would rather use Jordan Hill as undersized center
2. Knicks are deepest on the perimeter
3. Everyone thinks thunder should get rid of Perkins, except the Thunder
