Kings trade Cousins, Gay
Clippers trade Griffin, Stephenson, Nets 2016 second round pick (likely #32-36)
A swap of all star bigs that might give each time the shake up they need. Now this trade won't happen but not a crazy idea.

Kings trade Cousins, Gay
Celtics trade Lee, Sullinger, Turner, Rozier, Nets 2016 first round pick, Mavericks 2016 first round pick, right to swap 2017 first round picks (remember Celtics can swap with Nets in 2017), Grizzlies 2018 first round pick
I don't think the Kings will trade Cousins because he won't demand a trade but hypothetically let's say he had had his fill with the horrible Kings front office and ownership and wants out. The Kings would send a lot of long term salary while adding expiring contracts, a potential future starting PG (Rozier) and 3 future first round picks.
The Celtics have all these assests and if Cousins or Clippers PF Griffin become available the Celtics should make a push to get one of them. They lack a legit superstar and adding Cousins would give them that plus Gay and his shot creating ability on a team friendly dealing going forward with the cap going up.
Again I don't see this happening but with news the HC Karl will be fired by the Kings right before the All Star break might be the tipping point for Cousins and him wanting out.

Bulls trade Noah, McDermott, Dunleavy, Kings 2016 first round pick, own 2016 first round pick
Bulls get Anthony, Thomas, Galloway
Knicks trade Anthony, Thomas, Galloway
Knicks get Noah, McDermott, Novak, Huestis, Kings 2016 first round pick (from Bulls), Bulls 2016 first round pick, Grizzlies 2017 second round pick (from Thunder)
Thunder trade Novak, Huestis, Grizzlies 2017 second round pick
Thunder get Dunleavy
Assuming the Knicks want to trade Melo and he agrees to move his no trade clause the Bulls would be the best spot for him to go. He would solve the Bulls issue at SF long term and would take a lot of the scoring pressure off of Butler. A core of Gasol, Gibson, Melo, Butler, Rose would give the Bulls a serious chance at reaching the NBA finals.
If the Knicks want to hit the reset button and add young talent and cap space and build long term moving Melo for two long prospects (Huestis, McDermott) expiring contracts and three future picks would be best for long term future.
Thunder swap out a few players not getting any PT and a second round pick to add Dunleavy who will provide a knock down shooter to provide more space for KD and Westbrook to create and score.

Rose, Noah, McBuckets, Portis, Kings and Bulls pick 2016
-Rose gets a new start and Knicks start rebuilding around KP
Melo, Calderon, Williams
Win now with Butler and Melo.
08 Feb 2016 21:48:38
Rose has been balling lately. like last month lately. doesn't need a new start.
08 Feb 2016 21:54:20
The bulls are trading way to much away in my opinion. In my mid Rose and Melo have very similar if not the same value as they are both not their superstar selves of late due to injuries. then you are throwing in 2 first round picks and their last two first round picks in McDermott and Portis.
Either the Bulls need more coming back or they need to take out picks and/ or players
Bulls get- Melo and Calderon
Knicks get- Rose, Noah and Kings pick.
08 Feb 2016 23:11:47
Hahah ok larrylegend. Keep it with that Amir Johnson is as good or better than faried. Rose, what, 3 major knee surgeries, averaging 15 and for a pg.4.8 assists and 2.7 tos. Dude is a season ending injury waiting to happen. Melo, minus last year averages like 70 games a season. Like this year. Keep it reasonable. If you really value rose at the same level as Melo, you either need your head check or stop making foolish emotional comments. No one could make an argument they are equal value. No one.
09 Feb 2016 04:13:47
Ok i agree that i may have devalued Melo a little. Melo is on the wrong side of 30 and has definitely regressed in the past few years. So i just don't really see how much of an upgrade to either team this trade would be.
As for the Faried and Johnson comparison, i have watched a lot of Johnson this year and he does a lot of what Faried does. i don't believe i said that he was better than Faried.
And I'm sure you could find a handle full of people that think they are of equal value. But yeah maybe I did make an emotional comment cause I think that Melo is an overrated player, but see that's the thing about this site, everyone has different opinions and views on players values. So sue me.

07 Feb 2016 20:55:23
The only way the bucks trade parker is for a huge package not this.
06 Feb 2016 23:38:10
Magic get: Lillard, Vonleh, Gay, Plumlee
Blazers get: Payton,1st rd pick top 5 protected, rights to lakers '18 first rd pick, Frye, Koufos
Kings get: Harris, Smith, Crabbe,2nd rd pick.
07 Feb 2016 01:34:05
I don't think Portland would do this trade.
07 Feb 2016 00:02:29
Stupid for Blazers.
07 Feb 2016 00:52:24
Wow, Portland gets completely screwed. Maybe if you took Lillard and the lakers pick out.
07 Feb 2016 01:05:58
no way blazers would even consider this.
07 Feb 2016 02:28:39
07 Feb 2016 04:51:02
Orlando fan "I'll take your 2nd best scorer and your superstar for my draft picks and a point guard who can't score okay sounds good.
06 Feb 2016 19:55:09
Kings get Whiteside, Deng, Birdman, McRoberts
- Whiteside/ Cousins would be an unreal bigman combo
Heat get Gay and Koufos
- Heat get a return for Whiteside who could leave in FA and lowers tax bill.
06 Feb 2016 20:55:01
Whiteside and Cousins could be great but there's not much spacing there and neither are very fast and that could cause matchup problems on defense.
06 Feb 2016 21:19:03
Especially with rondo at point, you have three of your starting 5 that can't really do much outside of the key in terms of scoring.
07 Feb 2016 01:37:09
Whiteside and WCS is the same kind of player.
07 Feb 2016 04:51:54
But WCS with nt bolt in FA and is on rookie deal for this year and the next 3 :)
06 Feb 2016 04:47:41
Bulls trade Noah, Snell, Bairstow, Kings 2016 first round pick, 2017 first round pick (top 14 protected till 2018 then becomes 2019 and 2019 second round picks)
Nuggets trade Gallinari, Hickson
The Nuggets are in fire sale mode and are looking to trade almost anyone. So if sending out two players not part of their long term core for two first round picks plus the young defensive wing in Snell is a nice return.
Bulls lack a legit starting option at SF, Gallinari will fix that while providing more scoring and options to play small ball. Hickson provides an energy big off the bench who's contract expires at the end of the season.
05 Feb 2016 18:14:36
Celtics and Kings Trade
Celtics get Cousins and Gay
Kings get Lee (exp), Crowder, Zeller (exp), Sullinger (exp), Rozier, 2016 Nets 1st and Wolves 1st (2-2nd rd picks) and Celtics 2017 1st rd pick.
Bradley/ Turner/ Hunter
Johnson/ Jerebko/ Mickey
05 Feb 2016 18:17:01
This wouldn't cut it for boogie, let alone adding gay.
05 Feb 2016 18:24:03
If Celtics want Boogie, they need Bradley, Sullinger, Olynyk, and all 3 BKN picks ('16, '17 right to swap picks, '18).
Others will need to be added to make salaries work, but that would have to be the starting point.
05 Feb 2016 19:04:37
@NLD, Crowder, Olynyk and picks would be my choice, but yes, I agree.
05 Feb 2016 18:02:21
Orlando gets: Gay, Curry
Sac gets: Harris, Top 7 1st rd pick protected, Napier
Payton/ Watson/ Appling
Oladipo/ Fournier/ Curry
Gay/ Hezonja/ Marble
Gordon/ Frye/ Nicholson
Vucevic/ Smith/ Dedmon.
05 Feb 2016 18:15:47
This one I'd do, just not sure its that good for magic.
05 Feb 2016 18:30:05
I think Harris has more value than gay. I most certainly wouldn't include a first to swap them.
05 Feb 2016 17:30:31

05 Feb 2016 17:54:50
Would love it for SAC, but I am afraid NOLA don't do it.
But don't give CHA picks, and send CHAs 1st to NOLA and it might work (McLemore+pick is ok for anderson, NOLA, SAC happy for sure) . Very interesting in fact.
04 Feb 2016 23:41:18
I know there are bigger, better and more interesting trade ideas with all of the trade rumors swirling around today. But as a Timberwolves fan, I've got to try to make some deal happen.
Here are a variety of Kevin Martin trade ideas. All of the trades are with teams that have either been mentioned in rumors as having interest in Kevin Martin or that could use extra scoring punch of the bench. All of the trades work as far as the salary cap is concerned (confirmed with ESPN NBA Trade Machine) . Tell me which one you think is most likely and most realistic.
Minnesota and Cleveland:
- Kevin Martin to Cleveland using their 10 million dollar trade exception (Acquired in Brendan Haywood trade) and Minnesota's 2019 second round pick (Traded to Cleveland in Tyus Jones deal) .
Minnesota and Memphis:
- Kevin Martin to Memphis for Courtney Lee and Bostons 2016 2nd round pick.
Minnesota and Dallas:
- Kevin Martin and Tayshaun Prince to Dallas for Raymond Felton, Dwight Powell and Dallas' 2017 2nd round pick.
Minnesota and Oklahoma City
- Send Kevin Martin and Tayshaun Prince to the Thunder for Steve Novak, Josh Huestis, either the Ish Smith or the Perry Jones trade exceptions and 1 or more of the Thunders 3 2016 2nd round picks: (Their own, The Hornets' and The Kings') . Also, the rights to recently drafted Kentuvky big man Dakari Johnson could be sent instead of a second round pick.
Minnesota and Los Angeles Clippers:
- Kevin Martin and Tayshuan Prince to the Clippers for Jamal Crawford, CJ Wilcox and the Brooklyn Net's 2016 second round pick.
Minnesota and Miami:
- Kevin Martin and Tayshaun Prince to Miami for Chris Andersen, Jarnell Stokes and Miami's 2018 second round pick.
Finally, if none of the above trades, or any other trade is possible, the Wolves could trade Martin to Philidelphia in a pure salary dump.
- Kevin Martin and the Houston Rockets 2016 2nd round pick (top-45 protected) to Philly for a player.
Other teams that have been rumored to have been interested, or could use Martin: Sacramento, Milwaukee, Toronto, Detroit, New York Knicks, Washington, Houston, Portland and Utah.
Obviously as you can see, I think that Kevin Martin can be a valuable piece for a team competing for a playoff spot and that needs three point shooting and scoring off the bench. I put Martins trade value as an expiring contract (simply to make the numbers work) and another young prospect and/ or second round pick. I also think that Tayshaun Prince could be a valuable piece for a playoff team as a wing defender. He has playoff experience and is still a viable defensive small forward two couples together makes sense. What Martin lacks in defense, Prince provides.
I put a lot of time into making this. So please take the time to read it and give me feedback as to which trade you think is most realistic, most likely and most logical. If you have another possible trade or a counteroffer, please comment that as well. If you think Martins value is less or more than I stated, let me know.
Finally, here's another possible trade just for fun:
Kevin Martin, Adreian Payne, the Houston Rockets 2016 second round pick (top-45 protected) and the Minnesota Timberwolves 2018 second round pick
This might be a stretch, as the Suns seem to think Morris has more trade value than he really does. However, I think Morris would fit nicely into the 'Wolves' core. Also, if the Suns are ready to blow up their roster, why would t they trade that headache for a power forward with potential: Adreian Payne and 2 second round picks.

Clippers get Kevin Durant and Kyle Singler
Kings get Serge Ibaka and Steve Novak expiring

Most athletic team in nba history but wouldn't work together.
04 Feb 2016 22:41:24
they would still have the bench issues they are experiencing now and also have the problem even more with the old saying "there only one ball". all those players except adams in the starting lineup need to ball to be effective they don't really effect the game in other ways as much. yeah griffin can rebound but he isn't a good defender. gay is only a scorer. derozan can defend some but mostly just scores but doesn't have a reliable shot. just wouldn't help them win it all in my opinion.
05 Feb 2016 04:21:32
McGary and Payne next year along with Kanter will be strong bench contributors. Roberson has great D and Morrow a great 3 point threat. I can live with that bench.
05 Feb 2016 09:05:36
I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but Alex Abrines will not be signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He is under contract with Barcelona through 2019 and the contract has such a high buyout, that according to NBA rules, he would have to cover nearly the full amount himself.
Alex Abrines Will Never Join the Thunder"

A boy can dream.
04 Feb 2016 00:35:45
Second trade won't happen because you have the magic giving their 17 and 18 1st rounders. 1st trade won't happen, because, well, its no where near what they could get. They don't want vucevic to replace a much more offensively diverse cousins, fournier is a RFA, and they aren't stupid in not knowing he will command a bunch more money, and you have them trading 2 1sts from this year? Well, that just makes no sense.
On top of this, LeBron in Orlando is simply laughable.
Otherwise, good job?
04 Feb 2016 00:38:51
James will stay in Cleveland.
04 Feb 2016 00:54:10
Believable, especially the part where Lebron decides to join the Magic.
04 Feb 2016 02:47:33
1) kings are actually in the playoff hunt, so there is no way that Cousins is getting traded.
2) No way Cavs trade Irving and ruin there championship chances.
3) LeBron will not go to Orlando.
04 Feb 2016 02:48:29
Can't trade 1st round picks 2 consecutive years.
03 Feb 2016 20:11:02

Just craezy, but since we playing add mclemore and casspi and we can talk.
