Cavs get hickson smart zeller Novak
Celtics get varejao
Nuggets get Harris dragic miller exception
Thunder get osman pointer
Irving Williams dellevedova
Smith shumpert smart
James Jefferson jones
Love Thompson Novak
Mozgov zeller sanders
29 Jul 2015 22:33:25
I assume this is a joke? Why would the celtics do that?
30 Jul 2015 00:29:20
Celtics hang up laughing.
30 Jul 2015 01:09:25
This is awful for the celtics
30 Jul 2015 02:11:57
Smart and zeller for an center that is on the back end of their career and can't stay healthy? Makes no sense at all
29 Jul 2015 20:45:59
Zeller for Adams and Novak
-Bos gets a better C
-OKC cuts tax
Turner and Sully for JJ + 2nd Rd
-Bos gets a better 2
-LAC gets help in the front court
Currently has 17 players cut or trade to make final roster
29 Jul 2015 23:50:50
OKC needs a pick too. Adams too good and young to just dump for salary and a player significantly worse than him. I understand the logic and the scenario but OKC needs more in return
29 Jul 2015 19:17:55
76ers get Webster and Oubre jr
Get a rookie wing loaded with potential
Wizards get Canaan and OKC's 1st rd pick
Dump salary to make a run for KD next summer
29 Jul 2015 20:51:19
Sixers do that. I'm willing to see if I can get a rebound year out of Webster and although I wasn't a fan of Oubre at the draft, what little I saw of him in summer league was pretty solid. He's got some "ups."
I can live without Canaan and that OKC first rounder.
Done deal. Make it happen.
29 Jul 2015 22:17:08
Sixers say yes.
30 Jul 2015 01:07:03
Sixers do it. More promise of youth mean more hope. Cannon is probably not even going to play. Well at least shouldn't play.
29 Jul 2015 18:22:57
Bulls get PJ Tucker
Suns get Taj Gibson
Bulls get Steven Adams
Thunder get future 2nd round pick
29 Jul 2015 19:05:02
That Thunder trade is terrible
29 Jul 2015 19:05:54
Adams for a 2nd rd pick? I'm dying hahahahahahahahahahahhahaha
29 Jul 2015 19:17:31
Is Adams for a second rounder a joke?
28 Jul 2015 17:38:59
OKC gets Courtney Lee
Memphis gets Dion Waiters
OKC needs a defensive shooting guard to fill that Sefalosha role
Memphis needs wing scoring
Pretty simple deal
28 Jul 2015 19:05:04
except coutney lee is 1) better, 2) more valuable to memphis in terms of scoring than dion waiters and 3) more reliable.
28 Jul 2015 19:08:31
Pretty stupid deal seeing how Lee is good and Waiters sucks. Memphis says hell no
28 Jul 2015 13:57:08
CHI get Kevin Durant (w/extension), Devin Harris & Steven Adams
OKC get Jimmy Butler, 1st round pick from CHI, Bobby Portis & Chandler Parsons
DAL get Joakim Noah & Andre Roberson
28 Jul 2015 19:06:13
im a bulls fan saying no.
28 Jul 2015 19:42:23
You wouldn't trade Butler, Noah, and a first for Durant, Adams, and Harris? You are a fool. If anything the Bulls shouldn't be getting Adams in this trade.
28 Jul 2015 19:53:12
Cwj why are you saying no?
28 Jul 2015 23:32:59
I don't think Durant would want to sign an extension with a team where Rose is always injured and Gasol is old
29 Jul 2015 16:48:03
@kiks You need Noah and Butler for their reliability both emotionally and physically. Gasol is getting old, Rose(fav player) is always an if-factor with a huge upside. You give up your next-in-line behind Gasol in Portis, lose our 1st round pick next year to draft young talent, and in put Taj Gibson(love him) who gets in foul trouble to the starting lineup. Yes, then you have Mirotic who can shoot the lights out of the gym, but can't guard a PF in the NBA yet.
Reliability > Bringing KD in to carry the team/depleting us.
28 Jul 2015 06:40:02
Wizards get Kevin Durant and Steven Adams
Dallas gets Marcin Gortat and Otto Porter
Thunder gets Bradley Beal, Chandler Parsons, Dejuan Blair, and 2016 wizards 1st round pick
PF. S. Ibaka/ M. McGary/ S. Novak
SF. C. Parsons/ K. Singler/ A. Roberson
C. E. Kanter/ D. Blair/ N. Collison
SG. B. Beal/ D. Waiters/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ D. Augustine/ C. Payne
Can OKC turn down such a package for someone that could leave after next season
Dallas addresses their desperate need at center and get a young defensive and cheap SF
Washington gets the 2nd best player in the NBA to pair with Wall and also a very solid starting caliber center
28 Jul 2015 13:15:46
If it is guaranteed that KD would leave, they'll definitely take that.
28 Jul 2015 14:45:03
No clue why Dallas would do that though
28 Jul 2015 17:36:36
Who is Dallas center right now?
28 Jul 2015 19:09:54
so Dallas gives up Chandler Parsons to get Marcin Gortat and Otto Porter?
29 Jul 2015 01:14:11
so because they have no star center, your option is give up your best recruiter and solid young player for a bust of a draft pick who is at best an 8th man and a super over priced unathletic center? Why? Because you have heard of Gortat before? Hysterical
29 Jul 2015 05:26:44
No way for dallas
27 Jul 2015 23:40:02
Thunder acquire Thabo Sefolosha & 2nd from Hawks
- Thunder get back their starting defensive 2
Hawks acquire PJ Tucker
- Hawks get new starting 3

Thunder get Harris
26 Jul 2015 23:38:12
Thunder get Victor Oladipo
Magic get Steven Adams, Dion Waiters, rights to Alex Abrines, and 2017 1st round pick
27 Jul 2015 05:29:40
Nowhere near enough for Oladipo.
25 Jul 2015 20:41:20
Deal for halfway thru season when new free agents can be traded
Thunder get Wesley Mathews and Samuel Dalembert (just signed today)
Dallas gets Steven Adams and Dion Waiters
26 Jul 2015 15:51:53
Salarys don't match at all
25 Jul 2015 15:11:11
76ers / Knicks
Sixers need a point guard. Knicks are drained of draft picks. Nothing worse then being poor or mediocre at best and having zero #1 picks.
Sixers get: Jerrian Grant
Knicks get: less valuable of OKC 2016 or Miami 2016 #1 and Denver's 2016 second round pick.
Why it works: Knicks are completely out of next year's draft. This trade gives them a #1(in the #25 range) and a #2(in the #33 range) next year.
Grant and Sixers seem to be an ideal fit. Big pg with a decent outside shot.
25 Jul 2015 15:44:03
Knicks traded for grant and was the number 19 pick so why would they trade him. He eventually will replace Calderon in the lineup This year
25 Jul 2015 17:11:14
I like Grant, I think he'll be a pretty good PG in this league. I don't think he's a good fit in NY.
That being said, just because your team likes all the draft picks they can get doesn't mean other teams will throw away good young players for a late 1st rd pick.
25 Jul 2015 17:44:34
Try the bucks and Heat they have 4 pgs, knicks need grant. But take Calderon, knicks will give him for 2nd and take on Aldemir Thompson players not part of the rotation. Only cost sixers an extra 3 mil in 2016 & 17. Bc than Knicks will contact for Bayless and Chalmers.
25 Jul 2015 18:02:00
Sixers do that. I'm not sure the Knicks do. They like Grant. Sixers should have tried to acquire on draft day. They missed out.
25 Jul 2015 20:04:14
Newlakerdynasty. I was comparing this deal with the Cavs/wolves deal. Wolves have #31 and #34 for #24(tyus Jones). I thought the Sixers picks offered are around #25 and #33 for Grant( #19), better picks for a slightly higher pick. Thought I was in the ballpark comparing to current trade values. Plus, it gi es Knicks some flexibility in next year's draft, which they are currently shut out of. And I love the way you already have Grant as a " good young player" when he hasn't played a minute yet. He's still a gamble, just like draft picks. This trade isn't that off. But keep bashing anything that could possibly benefit the Sixers. Can't wait to use YOUR pick in the draft.
25 Jul 2015 20:44:05
I'd pass on that's trade. Seems to me guys like grant comes around all the time. So I don't need him.
25 Jul 2015 22:48:22
Wolves didn't have thirty four they had around pick thirty eight. Knicks made up for next years draft with trading for willy herm and trading hardaway for grant. There's still a draft lottery so can't keep out any team nit getting there pick back
25 Jul 2015 22:59:39
You can use your picks buy you guys giving every player four year deals you will end up cutting the ones that will turn out to be good. Also we'll see if he players you draft want to actually play for you if you read some reports agents and players didn't want to go to the sixers. Just keep finding players with picks attatched to salary dumps like Landry and Thompson because you actually have to spend your money next year.
26 Jul 2015 03:12:47
THEKING. you are making my point for me. Actually Minn traded pix 31 and 36 for pick 24(Tyus Jones). That's actually LESS value then what I originally incorrectly posted with pix 34 and 31 for pick 24. My point was, and still is, trade value is in the ballpark for the trade I proposed.
26 Jul 2015 07:44:32
Grant might end up being a steal at #19, he might not sign another contract after this one. My point is the Knicks have to give him a shot to see how it ends up. Why would they trade up to get that pick just to trade him before he ever plays for 2 later picks? They keep kicking the can down the road and never actually get to see if these picks develop into players or not. I'm bashing the 76ers because all they're doing is flipping assets for more picks. They just keep spinning their wheels doing that. They may get the best prospect year after year, but if they keep trading players and picks for more picks, any good young player they pick will more than likely go someplace else to compete when they become a free agent. Now they can't get any free agents to sign there because of their reputation. Never going to compete for anything with a team full of rookies and guys under 24.
26 Jul 2015 07:49:25
MY pick in next year's draft will end up on another team 4 years down the road and will have to be taught to be a winner after being held captive in that losing culture in PHI. I can't wait till your GM picks 2 more centers in the draft.
26 Jul 2015 13:10:55
Newlakerdynasty. other then MCW and KJ McDaniel, what other good young players have the Sixers drafted and flipped for more assets and picks?? Hinkie cleaned house, and is trying to build a foundation that can be competitive after taking over an organization in shambles thanks to the Doug Collins regime. Fa's wouldn't come to philly before hinkie, the draft is the only way to start the rebuilding. And MCW wasn't a good fit here, so kj is the only questionable move I can see. Now it's time to overspend a bit and hopefully get a fa to come here next year. Have okafor and Noel gel as a front court. Hopefully saric comes over next year. Develop stauskas into the player he can be. It's a process, and the Embiid gble sure slowed us down, but we will see progress next year.
26 Jul 2015 15:57:27
Twelves also trade future seconds or maybe 2. The problem is they if you overpay for a free agent they might not come anyway. Just look at the Kings this year. Offered Andrea bargani Tobias Harris and Wes Matthews more money and they still didn't sign. In the near future with all else four year deals your giving people like Scottie wilbiken your going to end having to cut people and might end up cutting or trading the wrong one.
26 Jul 2015 16:45:56
wilbekin is a third string pg at best, these guys come and go on every team. And only the first year of his 4 year contract is "partially" guaranteed. This guy will be lucky to be around in 4 months, forget about 4 years. Starting 5 will be: C:Okafor, PF:Noel, SF:Covington, SG:Stauskas, PG:Wroten. Bench: SF:Grant, C:JThompson, SG:HThompson, PG:Ish(they will re-sign him), PF:Landry. Deep bench: PG:PJackson, PF:Aldemir. SF:RHolmes, G/F:JSampson, G:Wilbekin(or McConnel, or Canaan, or anybody else for that matter).
26 Jul 2015 18:18:11
Since you guys value your players very highly having four first round picks and future picks will make you get rid of players. It might be hard to let them go won't it? You guys can get the world for them right? Nope. You can't get the world and then some for people like Covington and Noel. Deal with it
26 Jul 2015 19:11:15
Let me think??? Get rid of Canaan, Sampson, wilbekin, Thompson(either one), Landry, aldemir, ish, McConnell, pjackson. Yeah. I think I can deal with it. But thanks for the advice. Appreciate it big time.
26 Jul 2015 23:22:47
Saric coming over? International players you wasted five second round picks on? Still have to spend at least 80 mill of 89 mill cap space next year? Four first rounder? However many second rounders? Embiid coming back? Everyone would want to play.
27 Jul 2015 05:19:11
If they will trade the reigning Rookie of the Year halfway through his 2nd season, nobody's safe.
MCW wasn't a good fit there? After a season and half on one of the worst 3 teams in the league and he wins ROY, who's a better fit for them at PG? Give him time to develop before you toss him away.
Let's assume that pick in the trade produces a top tier PG. How many years is it going to take for him to develop for them? 3-4 years? By that time, he's either gone after 4 years cause PHI sucks, or the other core young guys are gone for the same reasons. Hinkie's "process" is one that secures his job, not produce a competitive team. If his process is a 3-4 year one each year after the draft, his job is safe until the delusional fans figure out they'll never be better than 5th worst in the East.
27 Jul 2015 15:46:56
Then glaring need for hinkie this year was point guard. What do they do with five second round picks and the number three pick? Not draft a point guard and are sending jp tokoto who can be the steal of the draft to overseas. In free agency you do the classic and sign wilbekin and Jackson to four year deals like always despite the NBA did an investigation. You traded for more big men in Landry and Thompson and a shooting guard for extra picks. Hinkie has no clue what he's doing
24 Jul 2015 08:15:10
Dion Waiters, DJ Augustine and Steve Novak to Portland for Chris Kaman and Gerald Henderson
Thunder can cut Kaman saving them 5m. Blazers add a scoring SG to share minutes with CJ and get a backup point they need.
Westbrook - Augustine - Payne
Roberson - Morrow
Durant - Henderson - Singler
Ibaka - McGary - Collison
Kanter - Adams - Johnson
Lillard - Augustine - Fraizer
McCollum - Waiters - Connaughton
Aminu - Harkless - Crabbe
Davis - Vonleh - Novak
Plumlee - Leonard
24 Jul 2015 16:55:52
No thanks on waiters, he's a future JR Smith level cancer (or maybe Nick Young). And I don't believe Kaman can be cut, that deadline already passed.
24 Jul 2015 07:14:45
Bulls Get: Dion Waiters
OKC Get: Terrance Ross
Raptors Get: Taj Gibson
I know the salaries don't work exactly but I think it could be solved with a few minor pieces moving around
24 Jul 2015 07:32:31
Bulls don't want waiters
24 Jul 2015 05:30:22
OKC Get: Carl Landry
76ers Get: Nick Collison, Steve Novak
24 Jul 2015 14:02:25
Why? The Sixers are on the hook for 2 years and $13m for Landry, plus he's the younger, more productive player.
You want them to replace that with basically 3 years and $20m and two older, less productive players?
Sorry, no thank you.
24 Jul 2015 15:09:01
OKC will never trade Collison. He will be on the Thunder for the rest of his career.
24 Jul 2015 05:24:40
OKC Gets: Kevin Martin
Timberwolves Get: Dion Waiters, Steve Novak
24 Jul 2015 11:56:37
Minnesota passes. Waiters is not an upgrade over Martin, who is their best 3 point shooter. And Novak will not play much in Minnesota.
24 Jul 2015 05:22:40
OKC Gets: Jeff Green
Grizzlies Get: DJ Augustin, Anthony Morrow, Steve Novak
24 Jul 2015 04:58:49
I would like the Thunder to add Carlos Boozer. I think he would be great in the 2nd unit for us. He would be playing next to a very good defensive center in Adams so his lack of defense shouldn't be a big deal. I like McGarys promise but he's not a consistant 15-20 minute a game back up yet like Boozer would be
So Thunder sign Boozer 2 years $6 million.
Trade Steve Novak, rights to Alex Abrines, and 2016 2nd round pick to Philly for a 2019 2nd rd pick (salary dump)
PF. S. Ibaka/ C. Boozer/ M. McGary
SF. K. Durant/ K. Singler/ J. Huestis
C. E. Kanter/ S. Adams/ N. Collison
SG. A. Roberson/ D. Waiters/ A. Mirrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ D. Augustine/ C. Payne
24 Jul 2015 22:26:32
Kanter, Ibaka, McGary, and Adams are all younger and better than Boozer.
25 Jul 2015 05:32:11
Okc could probably get boozer for the minimum.
23 Jul 2015 10:43:17
Phi get Brandon Jennings (Pg w/ expiring contract) & Wolves 2nd round pick
Detroit get Carl Landry & Kevin Martin (can use martin as their 6th man and landry give muscle inside to help Drummond)
Minnesota get OKC pick (could be around 25-30 next season) & Jodie Meeks (could be used as another trade asset as season goes on)
23 Jul 2015 14:03:16
I like this trade if Martin is to come off the bench and Landry adds depth.
23 Jul 2015 15:15:58
Sixers might consider jenning if they don't give up anything at all. I wouldn't give up a second rounder for that contract.
23 Jul 2015 15:31:47
At first glance I hated the idea of the Sixers trading the OKC 1st for Jennings.
Then I saw that this is really a swap of a pick in the mid-late 20s for a pick in the early 30s plus the Sixers get Jennings for the year.
I like the idea. Jennings probably wouldn't be a Sixer after the trade deadline, they'd try to move his expiring contract most likely for another draft pick and/or younger, cheaper player.
23 Jul 2015 18:24:11
Philly can have all the cap space they want next summer. They ain't getting anybody.
24 Jul 2015 01:22:28
Philly don't want jennings(a players that can help them win games). They want to be bad for another year.
24 Jul 2015 16:29:53
I like Martin but I would not give up Jennings tho.
25 Jul 2015 03:22:55
^im with bigdaddy Martin is good but I'd rather keep jennings this year.
