17 Aug 2017 07:50:41
almost all are way off.

17 Aug 2017 10:13:08
like which ones.

17 Aug 2017 11:48:35
Can't say for sure, but I tend to doubt that Celtics would be willing to give Tatum away for nothing.

17 Aug 2017 12:00:47
Why would Minnesota want Monroe? And why trade for Tyus Jones when they have Tyus Jones?

17 Aug 2017 16:43:41
Why would the raptors trade there best Pg who's and Allstar and everyone else for kyrie. I laugh at how bad this trade request is maybe a Lowry Powell straight up with a draft pick For kyrie and shumpert.

17 Aug 2017 18:39:54
Knicks give melo and noah for monk and MKG? Yes please.

These are beyond foolish.

17 Aug 2017 22:25:59
Noah's contract is horrible and Monk dropped 50 in NCAA. You are getting another top 10 lottery pick and dumping Noah. For the rebuild.

14 Aug 2017 16:41:49
Four team trade: Knicks/Cavaliers/76ers/Suns
New York Knicks trade: Kristaps Porzingis, Carmelo Anthony, Frank Ntilinkina, and Joakim Noah

New York Knicks receive: Kyrie Irving, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Dragan Bender, and Channing Frye

The Knicks are giving up their present and their future all in one deal here. So why would they do this deal? Simple: they are gaining an even brighter future. Irving is a proven star and wants nothing more than to play in New York. The Knicks have been unwilling to include Porzingis in a deal for Irving this offseason, so I remedied that by essentially swapping Anthony out for Saric and Covington, more than fair considering both of their ages and potential, and, more importantly, ridding them of Noah's lengthy and pricey contract. Swapping out Ntilinkina for Bender would be more of a positional swap than anything, as acquiring Irving wouldn't leave much room for Ntilinkina, however, acquiring Bender would provide the Knicks with Porzingis' replacement, one of the most similar type of players as compared to Porzingis in the league. Moreover, this trade would open up over $20 million worth of cap space, and potentially enough for a max contract, for the next offseason. Free agents have never been shy in their desire to play in New York, which would be even more the case with Irving in town and youngsters such as Saric and Bender around.

Irving/Ramon Sessions
Tim Hardaway Jr./Courtney Lee
Covington/Lance Thomas
Kyle O'Quinn/Willy Hernangomez

Cleveland Cavaliers trade: Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson, and Kay Felder

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: Eric Bledsoe, Carmelo Anthony, and Richaun Holmes

In terms of talent, this deal would provide the Cavaliers with more than a fair return in exchange for Irving. While this may not be the same case in terms of value (although definitely debatable), the Cavaliers have been really struggling to find a team willing to give up fair value for Irving and most likely will not find fair value for a player of Irving's status. The Cavaliers will be in a very weird spot this upcoming season with the uncertainty of James' future as a Cavalier hanging over their heads. They desire to acquire a veteran player along with a young prospect with high upside for Irving in the event that LeBron James is to bolt again. With this trade, they would not only acquire one veteran, one who is still only 27-years-old and probably just played his best season of basketball as a professional, but two, the other whose contract expires after this season and they could decide to re-sign should James opt to stay in Cleveland. Although Holmes doesn't possess as high of upside as the Cavaliers would hope, he is signed for two more years on a very cheap contract and coming off a breakout season in which he was extremely effective in terms of per 36 minutes statistics while holding down a very efficient field goal percentage and even stretching the floor for his team by hitting some three pointers. Ridding themselves of Frye, Shumpert, Jefferson, and Felder would neutralize the blow the team would face for acquiring the pricey contracts of Bledsoe and Anthony.

Bledsoe/Derrick Rose
Anthony/Kyle Korver
James/J.R. Smith
Kevin Love/Jeff Green
Tristan Thompson/Holmes

Philadelphia 76ers trade: Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Richaun Holmes, Jahlil Okafor, 2018 76ers first-round pick, and 2018 Lakers first-round pick (top 1 protected)/2019 Kings first-round pick (pick that doesn't get traded to the Celtics)

Philadelphia 76ers receive: Kristaps Porzingis, Joakim Noah, and Richard Jefferson

Giving up four young players with solid upside, two potentially high draft picks, and taking on an absolutely terrible contract (along with a much smaller one) would be a hard pill for the 76ers to swallow. There are only a few players in the league worth this type of package and Porzingis is certainly one of them. Can you seriously imagine the 76ers acquiring Porzingis without giving up Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Markelle Fultz? Wow! The potential for the team to succeed in the future would probably be something that has never been heard of in the past. If all these players are to live up to their highest potential, just imagine a team of James Harden, LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, and Hakeem Olajuwon all playing together. That would be absolutely absurd! The best part would be that the team, even with Noah's contract on the books, would have just under $30 million to spend on free agents next season, with the chance to finesse enough cap space for a maximum contract if need be. Shooting and defense would probably be the two biggest needs for a team of this caliber, and with players such as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Avery Bradley available, the team would have a variety of opportunities to complete their starting line-up for the next 10 years.

Fultz/Jerryd Bayless
J.J. Redick/Nik Stauskas
Simmons/Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
Porzingis/Amir Johnson

Phoenix Suns trade: Eric Bledsoe and Dragan Bender

Phoenix Suns receive: Jahlil Okafor, Frank Ntilinkina, Iman Shumpert, 2018 76ers first-round pick, and 2018 Lakers first-round pick (top 1 protected)/2019 Kings first-round pick (pick that doesn't get traded to the Celtics)

The Phoenix Suns are one of the youngest teams in the league, and they are only hoping to get younger as they look to sell off veterans such as Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and a few others. They have the minutes and room for risk available to take a chance on a player like Okafor, who still has enough offensive potential in him to be a possible surprise for a team willing to take the risk in acquiring him. More important in this deal, however, would be the two picks the team would be acquiring. Even with the magical upside the 76ers would have on their roster following this trade, they would almost undoubtedly need another year to develop into a true contender, and that's not taking injuries into consideration. Granted, the Eastern Conference is probably as weak as it has ever been and the 76ers can just as easily sneak into the playoffs as a seventh or eighth seed as they can finish as an 11th or 12th seed, but even if this pick were to fall as far back as 15th, it would provide the Suns with an opportunity to draft a player with, at minimum, medial upside. The second pick the Suns would receive in this deal would either be the Lakers' draft pick next year or the Kings' draft pick in two years. They would receive the Lakers pick next year if it fell beyond the fifth slot. Considering the likeliness of their pick falling somewhere between the sixth and 10th slot in next year's draft, or the likeliness of the Kings' draft pick landing somewhere in the top five slot the following year, the return the Suns would be receiving in this trade for Bledsoe would be very worthwhile. As mentioned before, swapping Bender for Ntilinkina would be positional more than anything, as Marquese Chriss plays the same position that Bender plays and outperformed him this previous season. The Suns need themselves a young point guard of the future and the hope would be that Ntilinkina would be that guy for them.

Ntilinkina/Tyler Ulis
Devin Booker/Elijah Millsap
Josh Jackson/T.J. Warren
Chriss/Jared Dudley
Okafor/Tyson Chandler

14 Aug 2017 17:36:51
Philly says no, way too much to give up just for Zinger.

14 Aug 2017 17:37:20
Not bad. I think the biggest hang ups would be the amount the 76ers are giving up here and I'm not sure if the Cavs would be willing to go all in this year rather than getting a mix of young talent and established players. Holmes is young, but he is probably a career role player.

14 Aug 2017 19:16:47
Philly says no. Could go either way if that is too much for Porzingis but I could see it happen, but with adding Noah that is way too much imo. They should be keeping one of Covington or Saric and one of those first should become 2 seconds

14 Aug 2017 22:44:30
I agree that the 76ers may be giving up too much but what you guys have to understand is that the Knicks aren't at all desperate to trade Porzingis, and even Anthony for that matter taking into account the offers they've received for him, therefore, it would take a king's ransom deal to grab him. 76ers have a lot of assets that they will have to consolidate at some point, and they should that sooner rather than waiting till later and receiving pennies on the dollar.

Porzingis has a truly unique skill set, is a superstar in the making playing in a superstar's league, and is extremely young, making him worth the king's ransom. The fact that they would still have enough money to spend on a top free agent next season in an effort to fill out their line-up would be icing on the cake.

15 Aug 2017 00:41:57
Danny, I just think you're underestimating how much of a negative asset Noah is.

15 Aug 2017 03:43:41
No ones arguing that it would take a ransom to get him but Philly is giving up a ransom and then your acting like the Knicks can throw in one of the worst contracts in the NBA on top of it. Like I said I can see the Sixers doing that without Noah included

15 Aug 2017 15:24:17
I don't see phoenix doing this. Yes they're getting a lot, but it's mainly a lot of nothing. No one wants play of, and the Lakers pick I believe is already owed to Boston for moving up this year to #1. So it would be 2 years before they get the first rounder. And I don't believe they can trade they're own pick since they're already trading one. so basically phoenix trades Bledsoe, and bender for okafor schumperts contract, and the pg from new York.

12 Aug 2017 22:37:25
With Randolph banned his contracted will voided. December trade

Kings get Anderson Randle
Knicks get G.Hill Henson hou 2020
Bucks get Black Onuaka Long
Rockets get Melo


Fox might be already better than Hill. Develop play the young guys.


Develop Ntilikina slowly
Lee hou 2020 for MKG


Bucks cut future payroll
Teletovic Hawes Parker for Faried Chandler


13 Aug 2017 00:17:11
I don't see what motivates the Kings to trade a Hill for a bad contract and little else or why the Bucks trade a decent player for nothing but some minor cap relief.

I also don't think Lee and what looks to be a late first 3 years from now gets you MGK.

13 Aug 2017 18:09:45
I wouldbt give up on Parker yet if I'm bucks.

12 Aug 2017 04:24:04
SAC Kings X CLE Cavs X DET Pistons

SAC take - K.Irving

CLE take - D.Fox , A.Drummond

DET take - W.Cauley-Stein , 1st from SAC

12 Aug 2017 15:59:55
spurs aren't getting kyrie with just giving up a 1st.

12 Aug 2017 17:18:52
Trust, look a little closer bud, that's SAC for Sacramento, not the Spurs. They're giving up a 1st and Fox.

10 Aug 2017 20:18:28
Pelicans get Parsons Lee
Grizzlies get Hill Thomas Noah
Knicks get Daniels Temple Ennis Baldwin Asik
Kings get Moore 2 NY

Pelican get experience wings who can stretch the floor. For there PG to create for their 2 all-star bigs

Grizzlies improve strength and health at SF. Getting better contracts (Noah over Parsons). Add backup center with depth and exp. while Wright starts at PF.

Knicks use Thomas and Lee to move Noah. They improve future cap space. They can stretch Asik or move him for Aldrich or include him in trade with Melo.

Kings improve sg

10 Aug 2017 20:52:28
Dumb as.

10 Aug 2017 21:37:42
Why would Kings improve SG? They already have Hield, Temple, Bogdanovic and Richardson.

I think Pels would rather keep Hill and stretch Asik themselves.

Both Knicks and Grizzlies have to include at least one 1st rounder to move Noah or Parsons.

11 Aug 2017 18:25:03
Let's include combination Hill Moore and Asik equal Parsons or Noah when requiring to include 1st. Dumb as he say thinking he spin that into Melo. With to premier bigs pelicans failed make playoff bc roster is garbage. 2 solid pg. No wing Parsons and Lee > Hill and Moore.

07 Aug 2017 17:34:25
Twolves moves

-Sign Dante Cunningham 1yr minimum

PG: Rubio, Jones, Udrih
SG: Wiggins, Crawford, McDaniels
SF: Butler, Temple, Dunleavy
PF: Gibson, Bjelica, Cunningham
C: Towns, Dieng, Patton.

07 Aug 2017 20:58:54
Didn't Rubio get traded to Jazz?

08 Aug 2017 02:10:04
I meant Teague lol.

08 Aug 2017 15:47:51
I think Kings would need more than that to justify taking on another big man with them already having WCS, Koufos and Papagiannis as guys who can basically only play center. If they needed them to Labissiere and Giles could play there too so I see no need for them to add a center if anything it would be the opposite and them offloading Koufos.

09 Aug 2017 11:06:33
Temple forward?

06 Aug 2017 17:59:45
Kings moves

-Trade Garrett Temple to Minnesota for Cole Aldrich and a 2nd rd pick

-Waive Cole Aldrich (his contract is non-guaranteed for 2018-19)

-Sign Alex Poythress

2017/ 18 Lineup:

SF: Carter, Jackson, Poythress
PF: Randolph, Labissiere, Giles

PG: Fox, Hill, Mason
SG: Hield, Bogdanovic, Richardson
SF: Barton, Jackson, Pondexter
PF: Bagley, Randolph, Giles
C: WCS, Labissiere, Papagiannis.

06 Aug 2017 18:30:19
I thought about it and maybe Will Barton should get a little bit more money like at least 3yr 39m.

06 Aug 2017 21:01:31
Awesome additional comment. Complete game changer.

06 Aug 2017 22:06:09
Kings don't have 1st rounder in 2018.

04 Aug 2017 17:34:38
Phoenix Suns moves

-Renounce rights to Alex Len

-Sign Nerlens Noel 3yr 55m (player option)

•Trade Eric Bledsoe, Dragan Bender, Elijah Millsap, Derrick Jones jr, and Miami's 2018 1st to Cleveland for Kyrie Irving and Channing Frye

•Suns-Twolves-Kings trade
SUNS get Garrett Temple
TWOLVES get Jared Dudley
KINGS get Cole Aldrich and a 2nd rd pick (via Twolves)

-Sign Greivis Vasquez 1yr minimum

PG: Irving, Ulis, Knight (hurt)
SG: Booker, Temple, Vasquez
SF: Jackson, Warren, Reed
PF: Chriss, Williams, Peters
C: Noel, Chandler, Frye.

04 Aug 2017 22:14:29
I like the trade for Irving (although not sure Millsap and Jones are necessary since Cavs don't really have roster spots for them and just waiving them is expensive with them deep in luxury tax) . Moving Dudley for Temple isn't a bad move and they could also try to send him to Cavs for Shumpert.

I'm not crazy about the Noel signing. It isn't awful but Suns aren't going to be a playoff team with or without him so I think they'd be better off being patient and maybe targeting a more impactful player next offseason as well as improve their pick by having slightly worse record. If they make the move for Irving I think the Suns will have to explore more aggressive moves including their remaining picks, young players and salary space if they want a real shot at keeping him for more than 2 years when NY will likely be more attractive than it is now (can't get worse) .

05 Aug 2017 03:27:12
No point to sign Noel. Dallas will match it.

05 Aug 2017 21:35:43
Cavs say no . Bledsoe, warren and
M. chriss gets it done .

28 Jul 2017 06:07:06

Cavs get Andrew Wiggins, Gorgui Dieng, and a 2nd rd pick (via Kings)

SG: Hield, Bogdanovic, Richardson
SF: Carter, Jackson
PF: Randolph, Labissiere, Giles
C: WCS, Papagiannis, Koufos.

27 Jul 2017 03:18:47

Kings add Kyrie Irving


Suns add D'Aaron Fox , Garrett Temple & Kosta Koufos


Cavs add Eric Bledsoe , TJ Warren , W.Cauley-Stein & 1st round pick from SAC


27 Jul 2017 04:40:22
I don't think it makes sense for Kings to go after Irving although maybe his addition puts them on the FA map and they have plenty of cap space to add some talent as well as young talent that could be packaged for some help. That presents a risky proposition however since they wouldn't likely be able to bring the help until next offseason (this season would be a wash for them) and then they'd be gambling on Irving staying in his final year.

I think its a very solid return for Suns and Cavs but with Kings pick going to Boston in 2019 don't think they'll be able to give up this years pick.

25 Jul 2017 09:32:26

Det get Wcs , A Crabbe & 1st from Kings

Sac get Drummond & Turner

Portland get R Jackson & K koufos

25 Jul 2017 18:49:13
That's just terrible. I don't think any of the team's say yes.

24 Jul 2017 21:36:00
Simple 3 Way trade

Celtics receive Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson

Cavs receive Wiggins, Horford, and 2018 LAL/ SAC 1st round pick (from Boston)
(Sign D-Rose)

Timberwolves receive Isaiah Thomas and Kyle Korver.

25 Jul 2017 01:02:27
how factual is this?

25 Jul 2017 01:44:48
And white loudly the wolves laugh. So they give up a top flight two way player for an expiring contract of a player who scores, doesn't pass that well, and plays literally zero defense? Awesome.

25 Jul 2017 02:19:59
I can't see those two teams trading with each other at this time since there arguably 1 and 2 in the east.

25 Jul 2017 02:22:22
Wiggins for Irving sure but I don't think Twolves give up Wiggins for IT and Korver. Also, I don't think I'd prefer Horford over Thompson if I were Cavs due to Thompson being a much better rebounder and very good pick and roll defender.

25 Jul 2017 16:17:54
Hamburger, I don't believe Wiggins is a top 25 player in the league so it's a stretch to call him "top flight. " Also, a 30 ppg scorer is valuable no matter how you look at it. The twolves could use the veterans and shooting provided by Thomas and Korver.

27 Jul 2017 19:14:42
I don't think I would give up Wiggins for Irving let alone for Thomas. If the wolves didn't sign Jeff Teague I could see them trading for Irving. but they're probably not going to spend close to 40 million next season just on PG's.

15 Jul 2017 20:13:53
Celtics are the clear favorites to land Anthony Davis if the Pelicans decide to trade him. It all depends on this season. If the Boogie-AD project didn't work, the Pels will look to trade him and Rebuild. Davis is also a big fan of Gordon Hayward.


Celtics get: Anthony Davis

Pelicans get: Jaylon Brown, Marcus Smart, Marcus Morris and Aaron Baynes + 18 Nets Pick, 18Lakers/19 Sac Pick and 19 Grizzlies Pick.

15 Jul 2017 21:19:26
Why is it that Celtics fans live in a 24 hour Fantasy land?

15 Jul 2017 22:35:50
Yes, the C's have the resources to get him, no, the Pels aren't dealing him.

16 Jul 2017 02:38:55
So the. They don't have the resources to get him.

16 Jul 2017 05:25:24
Even though we have the assets to trade for him, it would mean we would have no bench and deplete our stash of picks. Plus even if the AD, Cousins pairing doesn't work I doubt AD is the one that will get moved, AD is a better all around player but he is the face of that team. I am a Celtics fan and don't get me wrong I would love to have Davis on the team but I think it would take a lot and it probably wouldn't be worth it to trade for him, even if he became available.

16 Jul 2017 13:21:37
I'm a Celtics fan. that's unrealistic. The only way Davis gets moved is if he asks, and I just don't see that. If anything, you should be looking at a trade for Cousins. which IS actually something that could happen, and he could be had for a much lesser package. The Brooklyn 1st and salary would likely be able to get it done at that point, as it would still be an upgrade from what they sent out to get him. He'd be on his last year however, and you'd have to throw him into the mix of guys needing to get paid next season.

16 Jul 2017 13:28:17
You'd have to think it would be Crowder, Morris (can't be traded until September, but NO will try the twin tower experiment at least that long) and Smart as the pieces heading to NO. Does a starting lineup of IT, Brown, Hayward, Horford and Cousins have what it takes to win it all this year? Your bench would be Rozier, Baynes and mostly rookies, which does come into play.

17 Jul 2017 16:07:24
@Hamburger It is not that they do not have resources. But unless you are in total rebuild you do not trade a handful of pieces for a Superstar. Pels did not bring Cousins in to enter a rebuild phase.

12 Jul 2017 17:40:45

12 Jul 2017 19:22:49
While the Cavs could probably use a bigger defensive minded center, I don't think it's worth trading for one unless they can some how pull in one of the elite defensive centers in the league. First and foremost another star player in addition to the big 3 would be ideal, 2nd multiple long athletic defenders, 3rd someone who come off the bench and be a secondary ball handler (I hate the Calderon addition) and then maybe a bigger back up center. There isn't a team that can challenge them in the playoffs who has a center that is going to physically dominate the Cavs.

12 Jul 2017 19:31:50
Well now the Cavs can't sign Sefolosha. Maybe Mbah a Moute could work.

09 Jul 2017 11:19:08
3 more trades and 1 free agent signing the Pistons can do to get better

Pistons get:
PG J. Nelson
SF M. Miller
'18 2nd round pick (POR or SAC pick)
'20 2nd round pick (DEN pick: UP)

Nuggets get:
PG R. Jackson

Pistons get cheaper and add 2 future draft picks and add 2 veterans who can lead the Pistons with the younger players. Plus Nelson, played under SVG.

Nuggets get a PG who can play better then what they currently have and help them get better.

Pistons get:
PF N. Bjelica
'18 1st round pick (MIN: Top 10 protected)

Wolves get:
SG M. Gbinije
PF J. Leuer

Pistons get cheaper in this contract and add a 1st round pick next year which based on the recent signings for the Wolves, theyd moat likely be picking in the late teens.

Wolves add a young guard who if they choose to keep but if not just waive him. Plus they add Leuer who can help the Wolves and is even from Minnesota.

Pistons get:
SG N. Stauskas
C J. Okafor

76ers get:
SG K. Pope
'18 1st round pick (DET: Right to swap)

Pistons add depth with Stauskas who can help in the 3 point shooting area and Okafor who can move to PF and form a good duo with Drummond in the front court. He can even potentially replace Drummond if they choose to trade him.

76ers add Pope who was recently linked to the 76ers and form a good young lineup of (Fultz-Pope-Covington/Saric-Simmons-Embiid) and help in the long run for the team and the pick they get is a right to swap with the Pistons pick and 76ers pick and if they choose not to swap then, the rights would be extinguished.

Yrs 3 would then become 50% guaranteed if the Pistons give Young the 2nd year as 100% guaranteed. But Young can opt out after yr 2 depending on playing time levels.

Young adds athleticism and just hasn't shown it much but going to the Pistons can hell him ease into it as he is from Detroit.


PG: A. Bradley - I. Smith - J. Nelson
SG: L. Kennard - L. Galloway - N. Stauskas
SF: T. Harris - S. Johnson - M. Miller/J. Young
PF: J. Okafor - N. Bjelica - H. Ellenson
C: A. Drummond - B. Marjanovic - E. Moreland

Bradley moves to PG while Okafor also moves to PF. If they want to give Kennard playing time then this is what they do but if they choose to not to then Bradley goes to SG while Galloway to PG with Smith starting

Minnesota's 2018 1st goes to Atlanta and they don't have the cap space to do that.

If your a Pistons fan I'm sure you know how bad Jackson was this past season. I don't think Pistons can get rid of him that easily even to a pg needy team like Nuggets. Do Nuggets even have enough cap space to take on his big contract after Millsap signing?

In 2nd trade nothing Pistons are giving up is remotely worth a 1st rounder. Leuer isn't that good and has a decently sized contract that I think Pistons would have to give up assets to move.

In 3rd trade I'm assuming 76ers have enough cap space to sign Pope outright (otherwise they likely wouldn't even be able to do the trade since Stauskas and Okafor don't make that much) so swap rights for the two is pretty bad value. Okafor would make a crappy pf next to Drummond especially in today's nba.

09 Jul 2017 14:21:44
The 1st trade doesn't work. The Nuggets take on to much salary and I doubt there is much interest in Jackson around the league.

The Timberwolves need to give up about 8 million more to make the salaries work in the trade and they already have two solid pfs. I don't see why they would want to give up a 1st for Leuer.

Detroit waived the rights to Caldwell Pope. They can't even sign and trade him.

Okafor at pf would be a disaster. He isn't atheltic enough to guard other centers. He would get torched at pf and I doubt Bradley can be an effective starting pg. He isn't a great ball handler or passer. He's at his best playing off the ball spreading the floor.

Some trades to improve the Timberwolves:
Tell me which are good and the most realistic

1. Twolves-Nets
Twolves get Justin Hamilton and Joe Harris
Nets get Cole Aldrich and 2018 OKC 1st

2. Twolves-Knicks
Twolves get Lance Thomas and 2018 2nd
Knicks get Cole Aldrich and 2018 OKC 1st

3. Twolves-Suns
Twolves get Jared Dudley and 2018 2nd
Suns get Cole Aldrich and OKC 2018 1st

4. Twolves-Kings
Twolves get Garrett Temple and 2018 2nd
Kings get Cole Aldrich and OKC 2018 1st.

Don't like the first 3. 4th better.

09 Jul 2017 14:06:47
1st done can't get done. Hamilton in T. O.

09 Jul 2017 14:08:47
#1 can't happen now. Raptors traded D Carrol. future 1 and 2nd rounder's for Hamilton. Brooklyn hasn't learned about not trading 1st rounder's yet.

I think after signing Crawford the Wolves are going to cool it for a bit, they've been very busy this off season.

Kings - Wizards

Kings gets:
Bogdanovic (S&T)
2018 1st round pick
2019 2nd round pick

Wizards gets:

Kings get another Bogdanovic and two picks for taking on Mahinmis bad contract. They rebuild and won't compete next year.

Wizards shead salary to get tax relife. When they match Porter their tax bill will be huge and moving Mahinmi is the right move.

18' Nets 1st (unprotected)
19' Grizzlies 1st (protected)
19' Clippers 1st (protected)
18' Lakers 1st or 19' Kings 1st (protected)

Celtics with Porzingis

PF Al Horford / Guershan Yabusele
C Kristaps Porzingis / Ante Zizic

Carmelo Blockbuster
Rockets receive:
F Carmelo Anthony

Suns receive:
F Ryan Anderson
20' Rockets 1st (protected)
22' Rockets 1st (protected)

Knicks receive:
G Brandon Knight
F Jared Dudley
C Alan Williams (sign-and-trade)

Stretch and waive Joakim Noah's contract

Knicks Post Melo and KP
PG Frank Ntilinka / Brandon Knight
SG Courtney Lee / Ron Baker
SF Jaylen Brown / Jared Dudley
PF Jae Crowder / Kyle O'Quinn
C Willy Hernangomez/Alan Williams

Start with this roster into next season. Eventually move Lee for a late first. Get a second rounder for Kyle O'Quinn. See if anybody wants Lance Thomas. Would be hesitant to move Crowder because of his contract but if a team offers two firsts, take it. Bottom out. Get the two top picks in the upcoming draft with yours and Brooklyn's and just redraft this whole ship. Jaylen Brown has a good chance to be an All-Star and then get some more via the draft. Probably be relevant again in 2020. It's better than watching the Knicks win 32 games with Melo and KP on the roster.

06 Jul 2017 05:28:56
I'm high on Porzingis, but that offer seems like to much. Also, if I'm the Knicks, I take the picks and swallow Anderson's contract. They could feature him early on and possibly get rid of him around the deadline. He's a solid player and his contract isn't ridiculously bad.
