A bit complicated, but stay with me.
4 Team Trade (Thunder, Celtics, Pistons, Knicks)
Thunder trade: Perk, Jackson, Lamb, 2 firsts
Thunder get: Monroe, Wallace, Shumpert
***They send out a big expiring deal, two young talented players, and two firsts in order to put them in win-now mode and create a more balanced team. The key is how they extend Monroe with Wallace's money on the books for two more seasons. But if they can make it all work, they may just win a title or two.
PG- Westbrook, Telfair
SG- Shumpert, Morrow, Roberson
SF- Durant, Wallace
PF- Ibaka, Collison, McGary
C- Monroe, Adams, Thabeet
Celtics trade: Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace
Celtics get: Andrea Bargnani, Kendrick Perkins, first from OKC
***If they strike out on Love, they should consider loading up for next offseason. They aren't good enough to make the playoffs, but they have great young talent and plenty of cap space at this season's end. Next season, they can go after the good crop of FA's and resign Rondo. Plus they'll get a future first and reunite Perk and Rondo.
Pistons trade: Greg Monroe, Brandon Jennings
Pistons get: Jeff Green, Reggie Jackson, first from OKC
***Green will be a better fit along side Drummond and Smith. He can play the 3 or the 4 if necessary. He has decent range and could use a change of scenery. Jackson is arguably a downgrade from Jennings but has a higher ceiling and is a great playoff guy. They also get a future first to sweeten the deal.
Knicks trade: Andrea Bargnani, Iman Shumpert
Knicks get: Brandon Jennings, Jeremy Lamb
***Knicks are cap strapped and looking to make a shakeup in the backcourt. This could definitely do just that. They can then look to shop JR Smith officially as a hired gun to a playoff team.
OKC can't make that work, take Wallace out of deal or send him somewhere else
29 Jul 2014 16:28:59
ATL get: Westbrook, Pekovic, & Martin
MIN get: Teague, Ibaka, Perkins (exp), Jackson, Lamb, ATL 2015 & 2017 1st, OKC 2015 1st
OKC get: Love, Horford, Korver, & Rubio
OKC has horrible defense, I'd rather have Ibaka over love
29 Jul 2014 15:12:56
OKC Trades: Perkins (expiring Contract), R. Jackson, A. Roberson
DET Trades: G. Monroe S&T
OKC Starting 5:
PG: Westbrook (one of the most explosive players in the league and arguably a top 5 player)
SG: Lamb (potential great shooter and developing defense)
SF: Durant (top 2 player in the game)
PF: Ibaka (one of the top shot blockers/defenders in the league along with decent offensive game)
C: Monroe (inside scorer)
IMAGINE THAT STARTING LINEUP!
Pistons would have to many pg
Detroit Pistons will keep monroe unless there is a good offer for them and I don't see that trade will work
Throw in a first round pick and I'd take it as a Pistons fan. Jackson/KCP/Butler/Smith/Drummond is a pretty nice starting five to have during a re-build.
Not enough for Monroe.
29 Jul 2014 15:09:47
Rest Of OKC Off-season
OKC Trades: Future 1st Rounder and 2nd Rounder
NYK Trades: Shumpert
OKC Trades: Perkins (expiring Contract), R. Jackson, 1st Rounder
DET Trades: S&T G. Monroe (5/60mil)
SG: Shumpert/R. Allen/Lamb
SF: Durant/P. Jones/Roberson
C: G. Monroe/S. Adams
The Knicks are trying to win now with Melo, so I doubt they'd trade their defensive ace for what would ultimately be a late first and even later second.
29 Jul 2014 14:56:51
OKC Trades: Perkins, A. Roberson, Future 1st Rounder, Future 2nd Rounder
PG: Westbrook/R. Jackson/Telfair/Semaj
SG: J.R. Smith/J. Lamb/Shumpert
SF: Durant/P. Jones
PF: Ibaka/Collinson/M. McGary/Jarrett
C: S. Adams/Collinson/Thabeet
NYK Trades: Shumpert, Jr Smith
29 Jul 2014 05:51:02
Wolves get Kevin Durant, and Jeremy Lamb
Thunder get Kevin Love, Corey Brewer, Kevin Martin, and Zach Lavine
Pf. K. Love/ N. Collison/ M. Mcgary
Sf. C. Brewer/ P. Jones/ A. Roberson
C. S. Ibaka/ S. Adams/ K. Perkins
Sg. K. Martin/ Z. Lavine/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Jackson/ S. Telfair
28 Jul 2014 20:27:02
I know this would never happen but just imagine this for both teams:
Thunder get Thompson, Iggy, Bogut
Warriors get KD, Perkins, Lamb, Jones
28 Jul 2014 07:27:58
three team trade lakers thunder boston lakers get rajon rondo jared sullinger thunder get jeremy lin robert sacre vitor faverani boston get steve nash kendrick perkins hasheem thabeet 1rd pick to thunder 1rd pick 2015 to lakers via rockets
This one would cost Danny Ainge his job! Terrible deal for the Celtics.
SAS Champs 2014
28 Jul 2014 04:23:16
Perkins/Jackson/(Thabeet non guaranteed)
Bucks get a PG and an expiring deal that can be used to extend Giannis/Henson/Knight in the future
OKC gets assets that allows more depth. Mayo's contract expires when KD expires so they can relocate the funds for his contract and Ersan's contract (option exercised) could be used for Westbrook's contract when it expires.
Biyombo/2nd Rd Pick
Bucks dump Zaza for expiring deal
Hornets get a better backup center
succeed and proceed
28 Jul 2014 00:02:48
If KD really wants to go to Washington.
Thunder get Beal, Pierce, Gortat
Waive Thabeet (non-guarenteed)
Wizards get Durant, Perkins, Lamb
Unrealistic trade, but hey I think both teams improve
No they don't!
OKC becomes much worse in this deal.
SAS Champs 2014
But they get a better starting SG, downgrade at SF, and upgrade at Center
Lol. u included Jeremy Lamb to Washington like Durant by himself wasn't enough
Washington has nothing worth Durant.
27 Jul 2014 23:20:32
Thunder get Rubio, Martin, Pekovic
TWolves get Westbrook, Lamb, Perkins, Jones,
Nothing on your roster beyond Love is worth Westbrook.
Why do people keep posting Westbrook trades? They're championship caliber team, why would they trade their superstar for this
27 Jul 2014 23:18:17
Thunder get Millsap and Schroeder
Hawks get Perkins, Jackson, 1st rd pick
27 Jul 2014 23:53:30
Bad for the Hawks. Hawks already have Teague and Mack at PG, giving up Schroeder for Jackson would be pointless because Schroeder has only 1 year in the NBA on rookie contract and room for development, which makes Schroeder a good 3rd string PG, Jackson will be getting his QO next offseason. 1st would be late and Perkins is not worth it.
28 Jul 2014 17:08:15
I agree that that thunder get worse in this trade, but if they were to lose kd getting beal would be pretty good. Just think of a back court of Westbrook and beal
^^ I feel like this dude commented on the wrong trade
27 Jul 2014 18:59:56
Ok. Rockets players voicing that they are unhappy with James Hardens comments about everyone other than him and Dwight being role players. I know he's bigger than anyone on that team but who loses in this deal
Thunder get James Harden
Rockets get Russell Westbrook, Jeremy Lamb, and Hasheem Thabeet
Pf. T. Jones/ D. Montejunas/ J. Adrian
Sf. T. Ariza/ A. Gee/ R. Covington
C. D. Howard/ H. Thabeet/ J. Dorsey
Sg. J. Lamb/ T. Daniels/ N. Johnson
Pg. R. Westbrook/ P. Beverley/ I. Canaan
Pf. S. Ibaka/ N. Collison/ G. Jarrett
Sf. K. Durant/ P. Jones/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ K. Perkins/ M. McGary
Sg. J. Harden/ A. Morrow/ A. Roberson
Pg. R. Jackson/ S. Telfair/ S. Christion
Westbrook is 5 times the player Harden is. He's a better teammate and player. Durant would be mad. Dumb trade
The Hell with Westbrook rather have Harden any day of the week cccc
Not going to happen. But if it did happen, the Thunder would not be the one adding players to the framework of the deal. The Rockets would be asked to add players and/or picks.
I'd rather have Harden when we have a guy like Jackson to replace Russ
27 Jul 2014 15:57:53
Bulls trade okc
Okc gets noah,mcdermout,j.butler,bulls 1rst round pick 2015,and kings protected pick
Bulls get k.durant
Durant is untradeable. Common now!
I know the trade would never happen but that okc roster would look really nice
Great defensive team, has scorers
27 Jul 2014 15:32:28
Wolves get Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Kendrick Perkins, Hasheem Thabeet,
Thunder get Ricky Rubio, Nikola Piković
Wolves want more. Way more
27 Jul 2014 13:04:46
Minesota Timberwolves' 2- year offseason plan:
In 2014 summer;
1) trade r.rubio, n.pekovic, z.lavine, 2015 1st round pick (protected for selections between 13-30) and 2015' 2nd round picks (via DEN and own) for r.westbrook and k.perkins
- if wolves wants to retain love, getting his one of the best friend and former teammate seems a good option. They have to make an all-in type of offer to grab westbrook from okc.
2) sign a.blatche (1-year, 4m) via MLE
- nice backup&6th man
Westbrook - barea - shved
Martin - muhammad - hummel
Brewer - budinger - robinson
Love - blatche (6th man) - moute
Dieng - perkins - turiaf
In 2015 summer;
1) love opts in and resigns for max contract [he will get slightly more money by doing that rather that opting out and resigning, and also it will allow wolves to have more cap room to improve their team] - (6-year, 133m)
* players under contract: r.westbrook (16.7m), k.love (16.7m), k.martin (7.1m), c.budinger (5m), g.dieng (1.5m), s.muhammad (2.1m), robinson (0.9m)
* total salary: 50m
* salary cap: 66m
1) sign r.gay (4-year, 50m: annual salary increase is 4.5%, first year salary is 11.7m)
- wing scorer and defender
2) resign a.blatche (4-year, 16m: annual salary increase is 4.5%, first year salary is 3.7m)
3) resign k.perkins (2-year, 6m) via MLE
- defensive backup bigman
4) resign jj.barea (2-year, 4m) via BAE
- backup veteran pg
5) sign g.smith and cj.watson (min.)
Westbrook - barea - watson
Martin - muhammad
Gay - budinger - robinson
Love - blatche
Dieng - perkins - smith
27 Jul 2014 05:54:28
Wolves get Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson, and Sebastion Telfair
Thunder get Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin, Corey Brewer, JJ Barea, and Shabazz Mohamed
Pf. S. Ibaka/ P. Jones/ M. Mcgary
Sf. K. Durant/ C. Brewer/ S. Mohamed
C. S. Adams/ K. Perkins/ N. Collison
Sg. K. Martin/ J. Lamb/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Rubio/ R. Jackson/ J. Barea
Let see a top ten player all star for no one in the top 20 and no all star sounds fair. NOT
27 Jul 2014 00:57:09
Bucks send: Larry Sanders, Carlos Delfino, OJ Mayo
Bucks get: Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb, Nick Collison, JR Smith
***They get out from under Sanders' contract and make way for Henson. They upgrade the SG position by swapping Delfino/Mayo with Lamb/Smith. Additionally, they pick up $11 million in expiring deals in two winning veterans (Collison and Perk).
Knicks trade: JR Smith, Jeremy Tyler
Knicks get: OJ Mayo
***They've been rumored to be looking to make a shakeup in the backcourt. Smith has been a headache and OJ Mayo could do with a change of scenery. This makes Shumpert truly expendable. Sign Udoh away from Bucks for front court depth.
OKC trades: Perk, Collison, Lamb
OKC gets: Sanders, Delfino, Tyler
***This is a win-now power move. Just imagine the defense and athleticism of Sanders paired with Ibaka. Truly scary. Delfino can provide just as much scoring as Lamb could. McGary and Adams can handle the backup PF and C spots. This could cost them Jackson in the offseason, but it could be the move that wins them the title THIS year. Start Morrow to space the floor with Sanders down low.
PG- Westbrook, Jackson, Telfair
SG- Morrow, Roberson, Delfino
SF- Durant, PJ3
PF-Ibaka, McGary, Tyler
C- Sanders, Adams, Thabeet
Two shoe rate trades
Bucks get: JR Smith
Knicks get: Mayo
Bucks get: Perkins, Collison, Lamb
Thunder get: Sanders and Delfino
I'm saying it's two separate trades. Not saying that they're believable
26 Jul 2014 16:14:00
Thunder get Ryan Anderson
Get a stretch 4, improves starting lineup and spacing
Pelicans get Perkins, Perry Jones, 2015 1st rd pick
Get some 2015 cap room, young athletic backup, and a pick
Perkins is a joke. Pels say no
Perkins is a big expiring contract that has to be in the deal to make it work financially dacman.
Pelicans says Hell No
26 Jul 2014 09:25:57
DET get Thad Young , Perry Jones , 1st from OKC
OKC get Greg Monroe
PHI get Jeremy Lamb , Kendrick Perkins , 1st from OKC
Change Jeremy Lamb to Roberson or Huestis
SO Detroit Gives up a Double Double machine for a Bench SF and a bust and a late first round pick. No thanks.
26 Jul 2014 04:38:22
Pelicans get: Kendrick Perkins, Jeremy Lamb and future 1st
( save money, get a young prospect and solid backup, and get a late 1st)
Thunder get: Eric Gordon and Alexis Anjica
- Sign Shawn Marion
( get a legit 3rd scorer and a lengthy backup center who could be solid playing alongside vets)
Holiday / Roberts / Freddette
Evans / Lamb / Rivers
Miller / Babbitt / Southerland
Davis / Anderson / Young
Asik / Perkins / Withey
Westbrook / Jackson / Telfair
Gordon / Morrow / Roberson
Durant / Heutis / Jones III
Marion / Collison / McGary / Jerrett
Ibaka / Adams / Anjica
I really like this Thunder team. I think they matchup good with San Antonio. Gordon adds that consistent 14-20 points a night. I actually think Ibaka is more a center, he's a great shot blocker and great athletism. Marion is an undersized PF but he's a veteran and gets the job done.
25 Jul 2014 23:53:20
OKC gets Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic.
MINN gets Russell Westbrook.
Perfect for both teams.
Martin/Lavine/Glenn Robinson III
Get UCLA alumni/Superstar to help Love stay.
Get pass first PG, good scoring center.
25 Jul 2014 23:13:48
Thunder get Ilyasova
Bucks get Perkins, Jones, 2015 lottery protected 1st rd pick
Thunder get Thad Young
76ers get Perkins, Jones, 2015 lottery protected 1st rd pick
Both deals thunder get a veteran stretch 4 who can play defense and the bucks and 6ers get a big expiring deal, young athletic backup, and a 1st rd pick
25 Jul 2014 21:02:03
Boston gets Kendrick Perkins
OKC gets Jeff Green
Boston does it to get the expiring contract and not to mention they lack a true center and big body
Okc could use another scorer and this is one of those internal deals that helps the Thunders chances at getting Durant and Westbrook to sign extensions.
Pf. J. Green/ N. Collison/ G. Jarrett
Sf. K. Durant/ P. Jones
C. S. Ibaka/ S. Adams/ M. McGary
Sg. J. Lamb/ A. Morrow/ A. Roberson
Pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Jackson/ S. Telfair
Throw a 2nd Boston's way and it works.
SAS Champs 2014
25 Jul 2014 14:11:29
Thunder get Rubio, Pekovic, Martin, Barea
Wolves get Westbrook, Jackson, Perkins
Rubio and Pek for Westbrook
