DET - OKC
Pistons receive V. Oladipo / D. McDermott
Thunder receive KCP(re-signed) / S. Jhonson
22 Mar 2017 09:09:47
Why would the Thunder do this?
22 Mar 2017 15:35:01
Oladipo and KCP are fairly similar players; both 24 yr old sg, good defenders, recently signed big extensions although KCP is a little longer/ taller with better shooting while Oladipo is more athletic. Not sure why teams would bother trading one for the other.
McDermott and Stanley Johnson are more different. I could understand Pistons wanting a better perimeter shooter with McDermott and Thunder would only probably want Johnson if Roberson becomes too expensive to keep.
20 Mar 2017 19:04:41
OKC - 76ERS
Thunder get G. Henderson + S. Rguez
Sixers get V. Oladipo
20 Mar 2017 20:22:44
worst okc trade ever.
20 Mar 2017 21:35:21
This must be a joke. Oladipo is worth more than just a salary dump hence why they gave up Ibaka and a lottery pick to get him then just gave him a huge contract.
20 Mar 2017 23:38:55
OKC's worse trade was trading Harden to Houston.
21 Mar 2017 07:24:20
The Harden trade wasn't that bad at the time. Kevin Martin was a solid replacement (unfortunately he only lasted one season), Jeremy Lamb was a promising prospect but never paned out and they also got a future lottery pick that ended up being Steven Adams (only part that turned out better than expected) .
Looking back its awful especially since Thunder dealt him and then the financial landscape of the NBA changed dramatically with the new TV deal meaning the Thunder likely wouldn't have ever had to go into luxury tax. Thunder could have even bought themselves some more time had they just amnestied Perkins.
Although Harden wouldn't be close to the player he is now if he stayed with the Thunder under Westbrook and Durant's shadow. It's a real unfortunate turn of events especially how injuries to Westbrook and Durant never really gave them a real opportunity to contend the next few years then they got beat by a very good Warriors team in a close series and Durant leaves this past offseason. Poor turn of events for what looked like a very promising franchise. At least Westbrook didn't leave, yet anyway he could still walk next summer.

adding to Jbbaby's post.
OKC - LAC - BOS
OKC get: Isiah Thomas, Jamal Crawford, and Blake Griffin (s&t)
LAC get: 2017 Bos 1st RD Pick (BKN), Enes Kanter, and Jae Crowder
Draft: Josh Jackson
BOS get: Russell Westbrook and Paul Pierce (retire)
Try to Sign: Gordon Hayward

06 Mar 2017 23:39:26
Celtics get Russell Westbrook
Thunder get Isaiah Thomas, Jaylen Brown, Jae Crowder, 2017 Brooklyn pick, and 2019 1st round pick
07 Mar 2017 12:04:04
celtics pass its too much for westbrook.
07 Mar 2017 17:08:18
Horrible for Celtics. who's going to start at the 3, James Young?
03 Mar 2017 03:15:01
NBA Trade Machine Approved
OKC Off Season Plans
Boston / Utah / Oklahoma City
Boston let's Amir Johnson walks
Utah buy out Joe Johnson's contract
Oklahoma City let loose Roberson, Collison, and Gibson too. OKC saves 14 Million ... Boston 12 Million.
Hold your Breath / Blockbuster Trade in the works
Boston gets Westbrook, Kanter, and Hayward from Utah.
Utah gets Crowder from Boston and Singler from OKC.
Oklahoma City gets Horford and Thomas from Boston
Boston add Plus 14 Wins
Utah lost 7 Wins
Oklahoma City lost 1 Win
Utah gets 2018 Nets 1st Round Pick and 2017 Clippers 2nd Round pick too.
Oklahoma City gets 2018 Celtics first Round Pick.
OKC dumps Kanter and Singler Bad Contracts
Boston can use the 12 Million to boost Hayward's Contract.
The 14 Million that OKC saves can get them a free agent that they can use right away
Workable Yes, maybe not so logical at all.
03 Mar 2017 04:36:58
Hayward would have to be a s/ t. Doubtful, Boston could get him in FA
Boston would want Adams instead of Kanter and OKC would want Crowder plus 17 And 18 Nets picks plus IT4 to get rid of Russ. And The Kitchen sink.
If I'm DA, I'd make the deal.
03 Mar 2017 18:17:49
To get Westbrook, it would take Horford, IT, Bradley, and both Nets picks.
01 Mar 2017 20:01:10
Offseason okc plans
OKC gets 2017 Cavs 1st rd pick
Portland gets Enes Kanter

Danillo Gallinari 4 yrs $70 million
Norris Cole- 2 years minimum
Nick Collison (retire and work on staff)
#18ish- Bam Adebayo or equivalent center

2nd round stash picks
Pf. B. Griffin/ J. Grant/ J. Motley

C. S. Adams/ D. Sabonis/ B. Adebayo
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Abrines/ J. Huestis
Pg. R. Westbrook/ N. Cole / S. Christon
01 Mar 2017 21:08:21
Don't believe that Portland would be able to (or want to) take on Kanter's contract after giving out two HUGE contracts last offseason to Turner and Crabbe.
01 Mar 2017 21:42:07
Portland is way over the cap, they'd have to send out that much salary to get him back. Also, with Nurkic, I don't think I'd want kanter.
01 Mar 2017 23:37:22
POR would be over cap but OKC would also be way over cap with this lineup.
10 Mar 2017 21:42:33
Does jbbaby understand the NBA salary cap at all? It would be impossible for OKC to do all of this.
27 Feb 2017 00:09:47
76ers off season
1. Do not resign splitter, rodriguez, Stauskas, henderson
2. Offer the bank to try and get otto porter. Long shot, but possible
3. Bring over sg Korkmaz
4. Better then 50% possibility they get 2 picks in the 4-8 range. With a little luck, draft Monk and Markannen.
5. Keep okafor as back up to Embiid. Okafor still on rookie contract, only 21, and value can't possibly be any lower then it is now, not worth trading.
Still have all there own #1 picks, 2017 swap rights with kings, 2019 kings unprotected #1, OKC 2020 protected #1, and literally 15 2nd rd picks in the next 5 years.
27 Feb 2017 02:29:29
Not bad, but you need a veteran with that last roster spot.
27 Feb 2017 03:04:16
NBA: Hoe about a realistic vet signing like Amir Johnson. he's an UFA, would come at a reasonable rate, is used to being a rope player, and is known to be a bery good locker room presence. Put him in the pf rotation.
27 Feb 2017 03:05:41
Can philly get a star with that group? If so where do they play?
27 Feb 2017 03:24:55
Nah not Amir Johnson, I'm talking about a veteran that would mostly be on the bench.
And Simmons and Embiid are the stars (soon to be)
27 Feb 2017 10:08:42
I'm not sure Simmons should play PG or PF.
I hope they get lucky in the draft and that they could draft Ball or Fulzz.
27 Feb 2017 19:22:43
I'd think they should bring in a vet as well, but I'd do it at the 1-3. If they can get Porter, that's fantastic, but if not, I think the three spot would be ideal for a veteran. A guy like P. J. Tucker or Thabo Sefolosha would be ideal plan B's.
23 Feb 2017 19:12:36
Thunder get: doug mgdermout gibson
bulls get: payne syngler roberson 2nd round pick
23 Feb 2017 19:18:30
plz share what u think of this trade above.
23 Feb 2017 20:02:36
Great trade for the thunder. Personally think that okc got the best two players.
23 Feb 2017 20:37:19
Another well executed trade by okc. Payne is trash and they got value in return while someone thinks he still has potential.
23 Feb 2017 16:25:51
My predictions for the day
Pacers send 1st and player, probably Brooks for Okafor
Thunder get Wilson Chandler
Butler stays in Chicago
23 Feb 2017 15:35:53
Okc gets Taj Gibson and Isaiah Canaan
Bulls get Cameron Payne, Alex Abrines, and Kyle Singler
23 Feb 2017 15:09:03
OKC gets Taj Gibson
Chicago gets Kyle Singler, Alex Abrines, and 2018 and 2019 OKC 2nds.
23 Feb 2017 15:34:50
nope as okc fan taj will ask for 13 mil next year.
23 Feb 2017 04:28:38
Thunder get Shabazz Muhammad, Jordan Hill
Twolves get Andre Roberson, Anthony Morrow, Kyle Singler.
22 Feb 2017 18:46:52
Det - Abrines, Payne, Singler, Collison, Rondo, and Chi 17 protected 1st
Okc - Harris and Udrih
Chi - Jackson
22 Feb 2017 18:36:13
Thunder get Paul George and Rodney Stuckey
Pacers get Victor Oladipo, Steven Adams, Andre Roberson, and Cameron Payne
22 Feb 2017 19:31:17
hey, look at this. new day, new franchise player, same foolish package. I believe you have no offered this package for 17 players. Go on.
22 Feb 2017 20:04:21
Oladipo normally isn't included in my packages.
22 Feb 2017 20:04:44
How is a package of 4 good young players foolish?
23 Feb 2017 04:46:30
Coz that's how Hamburg rolls.
22 Feb 2017 15:10:21
If kcp can be had from Detroit.
Sixers get: kcp
Detroit gets okafor and 10-14 protected sixers 2018 1st rd pick
I'd give noel instead of okafor, but then the pick would be the 2020 protected okc 1st rounder.
I think kcp would be a perfect fit with the sixers.
22 Feb 2017 15:29:17
I'm saying the protection falls somewhere between top 10 and 14.
22 Feb 2017 15:43:35
Ha! No sixers pass of course.
22 Feb 2017 15:51:06
Tre, what would be your issue with this senario and what are you looking to get back for okafor?
We have 5 potentially high first round picks the next three years. Roster spots are filling up, and I'd prefer to not be the celtics filling them with dleague mid to late first rounders like james young, zeller, olynyk etc.
22 Feb 2017 19:43:48
Tre things okafor is a top 5 center in the league and dillusional. The Pistons say no. KCP is a VERY good 2 in the league and just improving.
22 Feb 2017 05:23:35
knicks: Danillo Gallinari
nuggets: rose and 1st rnd pick(thundrr) and knicks 2nd rnd pick
thunder: wilson chandler and kyle o quinn
knicks: jordan clarkson and nick young
lakers: justin holiday, kuzminskas, and 17 1st rnd pick
22 Feb 2017 13:38:27
Clarkson would start.
22 Feb 2017 03:13:36
OKC get CJ Miles
IND get Jahlil Okafor
PHI get IND 1st round pick , OKC future protected 1st round pick & Kyle Singler
22 Feb 2017 06:11:10
22 Feb 2017 13:15:07
I'm in as a sixers fan, but I don't think the okc pick would need to be a first.
22 Feb 2017 00:28:13
OKC - Kanter Abrines Sabonis 17 1st round (Picks for Atlanta at draft) 20 1st round
ATL- Millsap, Patterson, Muscala
OKC- Roberson, Singler 17 2nd Round, 19 2nd Round, 17 2nd Round (from Memphis)
OKC- Payne, Morrow 18 2nd round (from Boston)
SAC- Collison, McClemore
Millsap/ Grant, Collison, Lauvergne
Adams/ Lauvergne, Collison
21 Feb 2017 18:43:55
Thunder get Jimmy Butler
Bulls get Steven Adams, Cameron Payne, Andre Roberson, and rights to Dakari Johnson
21 Feb 2017 18:19:38
So I will take T. Zeller, T. Rozier ,and 2017 Minnesota 2nd round pick from boston for A. Bogut.
Mavs can trade T. Zeller in draft time to team who need salary cap for offseason, while mavs pick up young player . Team like GSW, LAC, OKC, Wizards
