Bulls trade okc

Okc get lopez,felicio and holiday

Bulls get melo and okc 1rst round pick 2019

Bulls buy out melo and get a pick for rebuild.

Okc frees money up buy out lopez
Maybe keep holiday or also cut him
And obviously stuck with felicio but its get hit for 8 mil or 28 mil

15 Jul 2018 07:20:26
OKC/SAC

OKC-Shumpert,Temple(Both Expiring)

SAC-Anthony(Expiring), 2020 & 2021( Protected Top 55) 2nds

OKC gets a good return on Anthony without having to give up a first round pick.

SAC gets an Anthony who, if anybody remembers, still averaged 16 points so he has a little bit of trade value. They also get rid of Shumperts bad contract and get a couple seconds. Temple is the only real talent value they have to give up, so this is kind of a win for them.

15 Jul 2018 08:33:12
Melo has a No trade clause. No reason for him to go in Sacramento.

15 Jul 2018 08:39:05
The 'ol no trade clause. The hits keep coming. What rhymes with cave is the only way out for okc.

15 Jul 2018 11:51:55
Here is what's going to happen with Anthony.
The Thunder are going to let him go for nothing and stretch his $28 million over 3 years.
The Rockets are going to sign him for peanuts in order to keep his buddy Chris Paul happy.
Houston will realize it has made a big mistake and by the All-Star break will be exploring ways to get rid of him.
No one will want him, and Anthony will be on the bench for most of however long the Rockets stay in the playoffs -- assuming he is not released by then.

15 Jul 2018 13:33:38
Weren't you guys part of the group of people saying George was going to LA and told me no way PG signs a long term deal☺

15 Jul 2018 14:30:09
U comparing okc with westbrook with resigning of George to Melo going to the kings. Oh boy smh. Shumpert and Temple does not help their offense to spread out. They don't need those guys, they have roberson. this make more sense

Kings get Hardaway 2 okc 2nd
Okc get Lee Thomas
Knicks get Melo Shumpert Abrines.

15 Jul 2018 14:46:49
If the kings are going after Capela they don't want to add on salary over several years. Temple and Shumpert would help with SF depth

15 Jul 2018 15:36:44
The kings have a less than 1% shot at landing Capella.

15 Jul 2018 18:14:02
Thats what they said about pg resigning with the Thunder a couple of months ago.😂

15 Jul 2018 20:26:25
Considerably different circumstance's but point taken. Rockets aren't letting capella go.

15 Jul 2018 20:42:50
Melo should wanna go to a team to be the man to prove he can play to get a contract next year. Like sac.

16 Jul 2018 06:19:05
I like Brooklyn for him too. Play in a system see if that can extend his career somewhat.

14 Jul 2018 21:09:42
Nets - Thunder

Nets gets:
Anthony (buyout)
2020 2nd rd pick
2021 2nd rd pick

Thunder gets:
Carroll
Arthur

14 Jul 2018 21:29:38
Nets are going to attempt to compete this season. If it was faried and Arthur? I'd say nets say Hell yes.

14 Jul 2018 23:45:47
Nets want to tank and get high lottery pick and have cap for Butler AND Irving.

15 Jul 2018 01:17:04
They tank but are not going to make foolish value trades to do so. Better less obvious ways to tank.

15 Jul 2018 07:08:26
His contract ends next year. They will have even more space and picks. And who says they won't tank with Anthony. The knicks did.

15 Jul 2018 07:14:46
My money is on a waive by okc.

15 Jul 2018 07:24:40
Anyways Melo might be able to average 20 points and make it look like they are trying to win. Starting lineup-
Russell 6th-Dinwiddie
Harris
RJ
Melo
Allen

Might be convincing.

15 Jul 2018 20:44:49
Like about sac melo should wanna go to Brooklyn to prove he can play to get a new contract.

14 Jul 2018 20:51:26
OKC/CHI

OKC-Asik(Waive),Felicio(Waive),Payne(Waive),
2020 2nd

CHI-Anthony(Buyout),2021 2nd

OKC clears salary this year and doesn't have to pay 9.3 M for 3 years. They also get a pick.

CHI gets to clear space for the next couple of years after they waive Zipser and Stone.

14 Jul 2018 21:41:47
Asik is on the books season after next for 11mil. Feliciano is bulls largest guaranteed deal of 32 mil thru 20-21. This is going to cost okc much more.

15 Jul 2018 01:35:09
First of all its the 2018/19 season we are talking aboit which would mean felicio is only garunteed aboit 24 M over 3 years and Asik is garunteed only 14 M over 2 years. Asik is only garunteed 3M in his 2nd year. OKC can stretch Felicio's contract over 7 years and since technically Asik has two years becausw of the garunteed 3M OKC can stretch his contract over 5 years. To summarize if they do this deal and Waive and Stretch these 3 contracts plus Singler the only pay 8 M a year instead of 10 M a year with Melo.

15 Jul 2018 05:34:23
Asik has an early termination option. So yes i agree he will do nothing and take 4-5 mil he's guaranteed in '19-'20 and get waived. So I tally 22-23 mil this season, 13-14 next season. Melo would be flat out 24 (guessing) . I don't know what a 2nd rounder goes for but I'd think 40-45 tax included is pretty steep for a swap of seconds.

15 Jul 2018 15:44:23
I also left out another 9 mil of Feliciano 2 seasons from now.

14 Jul 2018 20:50:31
Kings - Knicks - Thunder

Kings gets:
Hardaway Jr.
2020 2nd rd pick (Thunder)
2021 2nd rd pick (Thunder)

Knicks gets:
Anthony (buyout)
Singler (expiring)

Thunder gets:
Lee

Kings gave similar money to Lavine and now take a chance on Hardaway Jr, while getting two 2nd rd picks.

Knicks gets cap space for 2019 and go after Irving, Butler, etc to pair with Porzingis.

Thunder save money this year and let Lee come of the bench as a sixth man. Grant take the starting spot at PF.

14 Jul 2018 21:07:01
Knicks are reported to have no interest in a Carmelo return. Feel hardaway is still developing. Waiving melo again is cheaper than lee. Even waiving melo and signing brewer is cheaper than lee.

14 Jul 2018 20:37:07
Kings - Rockets - Thunder

Kings gets:
Singler (expiring)
Nene
2019 1st Top 20 protected (Rockets)
2020 2nd rd pick (Thunder)

Rockets gets:
Anthony (expiring)

Thunder gets:
Anderson

Kings take on money for two picks.

Rockets gets rid of Andersons contract for an expiring deal.

Thunder save money this season and a lot of luxury tax.

14 Jul 2018 20:48:16
Anthony will be waived. No team is going to facilitate a trade knowing they can take a shot at him for much less once he clears waivers. It's got to benefit everyone involved. Losing nene isn't a positive for the rockets when they can simply add Anthony without losing anyone, even anderson.

15 Jul 2018 02:07:51
Kings get Hardaway OKC 2020 and 2021 2nd
Knicks get Melo buyout Shumpert Abrines
OKC get Lee Thomas

Midseason when Porzingis back
Knicks get Asik Faried
Nets get Felicio knicks 2019 2nd
Bulls get Noah Kornet

Mudiay/ Ntilikina/ Burke
Shumpert/ Abrines/ Baker
Knox/ Hezonja/ Dotson
Robinson/ Faried/ T. Williams
Porzingis/ Kanter/ Asik.

14 Jul 2018 00:23:27
If Melo agrees to play for Portland if he won't then this won't happen cause Portland won't want him just to buy him out.

Thunder get Aminu and Turner
Portland get Melo Ferguson and then one of or both a 1st and 2nd round pick from thunder whatever needed to make the trade happen.

Thunder will be freeing up 5 mil in salary which will take their luxury tax down a good bit then they can stretch singler contract to free up another 5 mil and save more money in luxury tax. And they add depth which they need.

Portland was wanting Melo before he was traded to thunder and they still want him as far as I know I'm sure y'all will tell me if I'm wrong. And they dump Turner's bad contract.

14 Jul 2018 01:34:10
Okc is probably looking to clear more money off their books.

14 Jul 2018 01:53:30
Okc wants salary savings. This isn't much help.

14 Jul 2018 13:01:22
Don’t see OKC making this move. Turner’s deal is bad, and still has another year beyond this on it. OKC likes Ferguson, and being in the tax with or without Melo, picks are going to be valuable to add cost controlled players.

13 Jul 2018 23:40:01
Kings - Raptors - Thunder

Kings gets:
Anthony (Buyout)
2019 1st rd pick (top 17 protect) (Raptors)
2020 2nd rd pick (Thunder)

Raptors gets:
Randolph
2021 2nd rd pick (Thunder)
2024 2nd rd pick (Thunder)

Thunder gets:
Ibaka

Kings take on money for two picks.

Raptors gets closer to the tax line.

Thunder take on future money in exchange for Melo.

14 Jul 2018 00:21:54
This is terrible for okc. All those picks to still end up with 22 mil ibaka?

14 Jul 2018 16:01:25
I'm divided in this deal. in one hand you lose melo for ibaka but the other hand ibaka is better suited for the role and will gel better which makes the team better. melo is leaving one way or the other so why not bring in someone useful.

14 Jul 2018 17:27:14
Why are Raptors doing this? Zach and I aka are both pricey for low production.

13 Jul 2018 10:01:05
Suns get Schroder Noah ny 2020 2nd
Hawks get Kanter Lee
OKC get Hardaway Knight Thomas 2 atl 2nd

Ntilikina/Mudiay/Burke
Abrines/Dotson/Baker
Melo/Hezonja/T.Williams
Knox/Robinson/Porzingis
Chandler/Plumlee/Kornet

13 Jul 2018 12:06:03
The Hawks are tanking and have no real need for an expensive rental at center. They're probably giving up the most value in this deal and getting nothing that they would value in return.

The Thunder would have to pay a ridiculous amount of luxury tax to do this. They're current roster would be the most expensive in history and by the looks of this trade, they are taking on more money.

The Knicks give up nothing of value and still somehow end up getting rid of Noah? This is same kind of deal you always post trying to hide the Knicks getting something for nothing in a 4 team trade.

It's solid for the Suns.

13 Jul 2018 15:33:46
On 1 hand hawks are tanking and on the hand you said they get a rental. Anyteam who is tanking, is looking cut future payroll while getting equal to better talent. Hawks get better talent and cut future payroll which is what tanking teams do.

Unless they stretch melo final, they have to pay the same luxury tax. Take lance out, Thunders pay 1 mil less in that trade getting better talent for team who can position themselves to be an elite team in the best conference. You take a 2yr risk and to see if you rewarded of being the deepest team in best conference to overcome Warriors starting 5.

Somehow you don't to value lee hardaway kanter on the knicks, you mock noah value, but noah to the sun with schroder is solid. Knicks are getting the least talent in all trades for expiring contracts. Hawks get best value, followed by suns and OKC. Couple 2nds benefit to offset okc and suns.

Take lance out and 1 atl 2nd. Still fair trade.

13 Jul 2018 17:37:41
Schroeder has value and Atlanta would want young talent for him. Sure they want cap space, but clearly assets are far more valuable to them than cap space. Kanter has no value to them and unless he's used as an expiring, I doubt he has much value to anyone. He makes a lot of money and is an average player at best.

Exactly, they can stretch Melo and save a ton of money. We're talking about a small market team that traded Harden because they didn't want to pay luxury. Chances are they will choose money over players. Especially the marginal players that they're getting back in this trade. Why not just trade Melo for Bazemore and Dedmondif they're interested in getting better. Bazemore would be a much better fit and Atlanta wants to get rid of him.

I said it was a decent deal for the Suns, but even then that's only if they don't have eyes on someone in the 2019 free agent class.

Hardaway has negative value, Lee has negative value, Kanter has no value unless you use him as an expiring, and Noah is one of the worst contracts in the league. Look at what better players were getting in free agency. You could have gotten better players for far less than what Lee, Kanter, and Hardaway are making. It took a 1st and a 2nd to move Faried's expiring contract and these deals are all worse than that.

Taking Lance out and a 2nd doesn't make it a fair trade.

13 Jul 2018 08:23:51
Thunder-Kings


Thunder get Iman Shumpert and Zach Randolph

-This deal still saves OKC around $50m and allows them to save money in the future by trading Melo rather than having his stretched salary on the books for 3 years. Shumpert and Randolph could be bought out, or kept on the team to provide depth and a good veteran presence


Kings get Carmelo Anthony, Kyle Singler, draft rights to Devon Hall, right to swap 2021 1st rd picks, and a future 2nd rd pick

-Kings do this to open up spots for the younger players. Melo would likely be bought out and the team would still have enough cap space to go after Smart or Hood or another option.

12 Jul 2018 14:43:38
OKC: K Love

LA: C Anthony

Cleveland: Deng+ 1rnd pick OKC 2020 and 2022 (lottery protected)+ 1rnd pick LA 2019

12 Jul 2018 14:49:33
Love is worth 1 1st even for deng.

12 Jul 2018 16:05:18
Orlando owns OKC 2020 1st.

12 Jul 2018 16:25:08
Love is an all star and without Lebron a borderline superstar he was a 26 and 13 guy so he’s worth multiple firsts with Deng.

12 Jul 2018 19:48:01
Except for 26 and 13 in a losing effort. Not to take away from Love’s talent, but what was Minny’s record while he was putting up those numbers?

It’s the same as the DMC in Sacramento argument, or even Abdur-Rahim back in the day. Someone’s got to put up numbers, even the worst NBA teams score 94 and grab 36 boards a game. It’s if you put up numbers AND make your team better is what makes a Superstar.

12 Jul 2018 20:17:13
Triangle, in all fairness that team improved every year and was 40 and 42 in his last year. Love doesn't control the ball and therefor can't be the best player on a good team, but I don't think it's ridiculous to say he could be the 2nd best player on a really good team (even without the best player being a Lebron level talent) if used right and obviously, he can be the 3rd best player on championship level team. If you threw him on the Bucks, Wizards, Heat, Trailblazers, Rockets or etc. he could really help those teams. He was a really good player for the Cavs and it's not hard to make an argument that they never used him right or give him enoguh/ the right touches. Everything catered to Lebron and then this year they started to play through Love more. He was putting up great number. Then all of the stuff with IT happened and his injury. They stopped giving Love anything.

12 Jul 2018 20:59:18
Those 26 pts and 13rbs days were along time ago. He's had a good amount of injuries and those Timberwolves teams sucked.

12 Jul 2018 21:57:49
Love's value was diminished considerably when celtics lost with him out and then cavs were swept with him in the lineup. He's a 24 mil a year 4th or 5th fiddle. Draymond green is cheaper and is more impactful to his team as 4th fiddle. Love could be great for someone when his salary goes down. Then he can be added without subtraction.

12 Jul 2018 23:01:58
4th or 5th option? They won a championship with him as a #3 option. They went to the finals last year with him as the second best player. PFs with Lebron struggle, his numbers had to diminish playing with him. Doesn't mean he's a terrible player.

I'd put him in the same category as Draymond, McCollum, Aldridge, Beal, Drummond, Middleton. Guys that can't lead a team, but can be the third of a "big 3" that competes for a ring. Or a first or second option on a team that competes for a playoff spot. He should still have value. He's slightly overpaid, but not egregiously.

13 Jul 2018 04:52:12
I don't think he over paid he in the third year of his contract and with the cap changing his max should be around 40 mil being third year of contract so he getting 15 mil less then max. Plus if draymond was under new cap his contract be different so the change of cap is y players contacts look messed up.

13 Jul 2018 18:52:35
If Draymond green is a 4th option then love is definitely a 4th. Love isn't as good as green. I'd rather have favors for the money. Love is Ryan Anderson. A little better.

12 Jul 2018 14:41:33
Knicks get Faried Authur Johnson Abrines

Knicks cut 37 mil in 2019

Ntilikina/Mudiay/Burke
Hezonja/Abrines/Dotson
Knox/Johnson/T.Williams
Robinson/Faried/Arthur
Porzingis/Kanter/Noah

12 Jul 2018 15:53:40
I love this for the Clippers and the Knicks

Not sure about OKC, it a good move if Gallinari can stay healty, but this cost them a lot.

12 Jul 2018 16:40:42
I agree with you said about gallinari but land him and hardaway at cost melo and Abrines, it huge winner at very little risk for okc. With good insurance behind gallo, patterson and grant are solid fill in.

12 Jul 2018 19:09:11
Shizzee, but would they value either of those guys at the price point they would have to pay? Not only do they have to pay their bloated contract, but they have to pay a ton of luxury tax as well. It doesn't seem worth it.

12 Jul 2018 23:14:01
Nugs say heck yes.

12 Jul 2018 23:22:33
Thunder give up and expiring and young players for two bad contracts.

13 Jul 2018 05:26:59
Hardaway 26 3 yrs left and Gallinari 29 2 yrs left. 2 players in there prime stretch the offense with 3 other starting players in their prime. Melo is not get u better talent without picks. Hardaway and Gallinari is best you can get. Best shooters available beside R. Anderson and Fournier. Gallo and timmy are better. OKC in luxury regardless.

13 Jul 2018 12:34:23
Gallo and THJ are negative value. They're owed nearly 100M. Gallo can't stay on the court and THJ just isn't that good. I'd buy Melo out before doing this.

10 Jul 2018 21:23:11
was workshopping this based off an idea i saw on twitter.

mia gets melo
atl gets hassan, t. johnson, 19 heat first, 22 okc first
okc gets bazemore, dedmon

okc doesn't save much on luxury tax but they end up with a better team.

11 Jul 2018 00:54:49
I think the Heat are getting to good of a deal. That's so much bad money.

11 Jul 2018 04:28:12
Thunder don't need dedmon they signed Noel. But Bazemore would add depth at SG even though he has a bad contract (not as bad as Melos, but his is one bad year) then maybe they can trade Abrines for someone who will help their depth at PF or SF.

10 Jul 2018 17:00:43
Melo for Deng..
saves OKC 10 million and capspace for Lakers next season..

10 Jul 2018 17:03:51
I think it costs okc 50-60 mil counting luxury tax. Melo will be waived.

10 Jul 2018 17:11:48
It saves OKC 10 million this year, and it costs them 18 next year. Counting the luxury tax, this would cost OKC like 20-30 million more than if they just waived Melo and just paid out his whole salary this year.

10 Jul 2018 17:43:24
They've talked about a buyout and stretch with Melo. Deng has no reason to take a buyout and stretching him would count more against the cap for him if Melo gives up a little in a buyout. Plus, they would be paying him longer. It makes no sense for Thunder.

10 Jul 2018 19:37:47
in line with the other replies, yes melo’s contract is bad this year, but its only one remaining year, taking on long term money for him makes no sense for okc.

11 Jul 2018 01:03:19
Actually this be a better deal because thunder can stretch Deng and save more money. Plus Lakers give the thunder a first round pick.

11 Jul 2018 01:40:58
@ II Lakers get Kuzma, then wagner both late 1sts. I wouldn't deal a 1st to dump deng. Get deng to agree to a restructure throw him a mil for his troubles and waive and stretch over 5 seasons.

11 Jul 2018 03:09:46
Deng has no reason to accept a buyout and his stretch would be 7,360,000 a year over 5 years. Melo is willing to take a buyout. He's already stated that. If Melo will even give up 7 million that would be less than 7 million a year over 3 years. They may be in the luxury the next 5 years. It just doesn't make sense.

09 Jul 2018 16:56:54
A Melo Trade Attempt...

Okc gets Olynyk
Miami gets Melo, Koufos
Sac gets Whiteside

Okc gets a stretch 4/5 and cap relief.

Miami gets tons of cap space for next summer plus get Melo and Wade together.

Sacramento has struck out thus far in FA but has lots of cap room. They still have a little left over but flip Koufos for Whiteside. He may have washed out in Miami, but he is very talented and has history in Sac.

09 Jul 2018 18:00:43
Kings may try for hood.

09 Jul 2018 18:03:06
Any team that wants Anthony will be able to get him for the minimum. OKC will be picking up the tab. Olynyk is a serviceable big. Heat would not give him up for Anthony. CA will probably go to Rockets, where he can save face when they bring him off the bench. On a lesser team he would insist on starting and being the first option, and that ship sailed about four years ago.

09 Jul 2018 20:13:41
Phill Jackson doesn't look so bad now does he?

09 Jul 2018 22:42:36
Yep he was right about melo just so stubborn with the triangle defense.

08 Jul 2018 22:15:25
Heat - Kings - Thunder

Heat gets:
Anthony (expiring)

Kings gets:
T.Johnson
Singler (expiring)
2020 2nd rd pick (Thunder)
2021 2nd rd pick (Thunder)
2022 2nd rd pick (Heat)

Thunder gets:
J.Johnson
Temple (expiring)

Heat save money and gets an expiring contract in Melo.

Kings gets draft picks and a young prospect in Johnson for taking on salary.

Thunder take on J.Johnson 3 year contract and save luxury tax money this season.

09 Jul 2018 02:52:25
Melo is going to be bought out. I would like to see a trade go down but it seems unlikely.

08 Jul 2018 16:08:23
Thunder and Hawks

Thunder get Bazemore
Hawks get Melo (buyout) a 1st and 2nd round pick

Hawks get rid of Bazemores contract which is more than 18mil for the next 2 seasons and he is not worth 18 mil. They buyout Melo and get a 1st and 2nd I don't think they would get much better for Bazemore.
Thunder takes on Bazemores contract but even though it is bad it's not as bad as Melos and he would be a good player to come off the bench and score.

After this trade happens they make a trade with Cavs

Thunder get korver
Cleveland gets Abrines, Patterson, and a 2nd round pick

Thunder get a solid catch and shoot 3 point shooter. Korver is pretty old so Cavs replace him with Abrines and add some depth at PF/ C. Abrines is not as good as korver but he can still hit the 3 and still fairly young and still has the potential to improve.

After these two trades thunder sign luc mbah a moute
Thunders lineup
Westbrook/ Felton/ Hall (rookie)
Roberson/ Bazemore/ Diallo (rookie)
George/ Korver/ Ferguson
Grant/ luc mbah a moute/ Hervey (rookie)
Adams/ Noel/ Dakari Johnson

After these moves they have a better bench and better 3 point scoring. And they have a good mix of young and veteran players.

08 Jul 2018 16:27:02
Are u out of your mind hawks 1st is top 3 pick. A 2nd rounder 31 to 35 pick. Is more than enough.

08 Jul 2018 16:48:03
The Hawks are getting the thunders pick all thunder get is Bazemore.

I'm not sure it's worth a 1st for the Thunder. Just a 2nd seems like enough since it would get the Hawks out of Bazemore's contract.

Thunder buyout melo its the only play for them.

Lakers - Thunder:

OKC receive: Deng, '19 & '23 2nds
LAL receive: Melo

Lakers get rid of Deng, take on more salary for this year and give LBJ a banana boat friend.
OKC shave a large amount of salary and tax with this trade, also add a couple of seconds.

Thoughts?

If Melo is willing to take a decent amount less in a buyout this doesn't help the Thunder at all.

07 Jul 2018 23:41:43
Why would okc want the deng contract for next year they will be way over the line before they have made a signings and seconds don't make this worth, especially cause deng would have 0 production.

08 Jul 2018 00:21:59
No team will trade for Deng or melo. Okc will buy him out.

08 Jul 2018 01:09:06
Deng cost a 1st for expiring contract.

08 Jul 2018 05:19:05
OKC will save 102 mil stretching melo so I think that's what they do that's what they do because they don't want no salary back but 6 to 8 that'sto difficult to do so the easiest way is to stretchy.

Deng costs nearly 40 million in luxury taxes for thunder I think. Anthony waive or buyout and stretch is the only okc option from what I can tell.

08 Jul 2018 15:02:35
Why stretch him if I’m OKC? Just buy him out, even if it’s at his whole salary. Yes, tax implications this year, but it looks like they’re willing to pay that this year anyway. Why carry a $9M cap hit each of the next three years.

08 Jul 2018 19:02:39
Luxury tax seasonally is cheaper at 7-9 over 3 years than 27 all at once this season.

Okc receives :Kevin love,Kyle krover,George hill

Cle receives:Carmelo Anthony(waive),Kyle singler,Terrance Ferguson,Alex Abrines,Patrick Patterson,3x 1st 2019,2021,2023

A: Nothing Cleveland is giving up is worth 3 1sts.

B: OKC already traded this year's 1st and 2020s 1st, so if they did trade 3 1sts it would have to be 2022, 2024, and 2026.

Thunder will just waive and stretch or buyout and stretch before giving up 3 1sts.
