Bulls trades to contend with cavs for title:
CHI: gay, mohammed
Kings: Gibson, mcdermott, kings 2017 1st back
MIN: portis, 2016 2nd
CHI: snell, 2016 1st
POR: hinrich, future 2nds
04 Oct 2015 09:52:24
05 Oct 2015 03:40:40
As a DET fan I would love for this to go down but ain't happening.
05 Oct 2015 07:19:24
Even though Shabazz is entering his third year, he has shown too much last season for the Wolves to give him up for 22nd pick Bobby Portis.
02 Oct 2015 17:40:09
IND: D Cousins
Get arguably the best center in the game. Turner can become the defensive stretch 4 to give Boogie the lesser of the 2 match ups down low and space the floor.
PG: G Hill
SF: S Hill
SAC: P George
SAC's owner wants to be the Warriors 2.0. They get one of the best 2-way wings and can go small ball like GSW.
03 Oct 2015 14:55:09
George >>>>> Cousins
In all aspects of the game and off the court.
01 Oct 2015 06:08:18
Bulls get Rudy Gay, Myles Turner, and Glenn Robinson III
Kings get Paul George, Nikola Mirotic, and 2016 Pacers 1st
Pacers get Demarcus Cousins, Taj Gibson, and Doug McDermott
Pf. P. Gasol/ B. Portis
Sf. R. Gay/ G. Robinson
C. J. Noah/ M. Turner
SG. J. Butler/ M. Dunleavy
Pg. D. Rose/ A. Brooks
Pf. N. Mirotic/ Q. Acy
Sf. P. George/ C. Butler
C. W. CauleyStein/ K. Koufas
Sg. B. McLemore/ M. Bellinelli
Pg. R. Rondo/ D. Collison
Pf. T. Gibson/ J. Hill
Sf. D. McDermott/ C. Budinger
C. D. Cousins/ I. Mahimmi
Sg. M. Ellis/ C. Miles
Pg. G. Hill/ R. Stuckey
Bulls give up a lot but Gay helps them win now and is better than any player they are trading away. also with Noah's extreme drop in production last year Myles Turner gives a potential future center
Kings get a very good package for Cousins. a superstar in Paul George, a very promising young power forward and what could be a lottery pick
Pacers go from having the worst C/PF combo in the NBA for one of the best. build around size with Cousins and Gibson who are still young. Small forward now a weakness but they could address that in next years free agency
01 Oct 2015 13:57:46
This is a very well-designed trade. Everyone values players differently, so any trade is hard to get full agreement on value, and this is especially true when superstars magnify the differences, but to me you have the value just about perfect. Very well done.
The only suggestion I might make is to spin the project Mile Turner to a "win later" team, to get the Bulls a more "win now" player. Still, four team deals are even harder to get agreement upon, so I'll just say well done, jbbaby.
01 Oct 2015 14:25:29
Derek Rose is really not helping himself right now. Either he's doing a Charles Barkley and trying to talk him self out of town or he just can't control himself.
I can easily see him not being a Bull and being involved in a deal like this. The Bulls have a young new coach that's being put in the middle of the Rose/Management situation. Management is getting near the point of pulling the plug on Rose.
02 Oct 2015 14:27:01
Could be fun.
30 Sep 2015 18:47:26
Kings, Bulls, Heat, Tor
Kings get Gasol + own pick back from Chi
-Kings get better combo with Cousins
Bulls get Derozan, Deng, Collinson
-help in backcourt
Heat get Heinrich, McBuckets, WCS
-heat rebuild and develope better core
Tor gets Whiteside and Gibson
- help down low and hope to sign Whiteside long term
30 Sep 2015 19:06:44
except Toronto just offered Val a 4 year, 16m/year offer. lol
30 Sep 2015 21:42:54
Hell no from T.O
02 Oct 2015 03:02:40
Gasol has just one, or maybe two years left. That makes him a horrible fit for Boogie. The Kings would rather keep Collison and WCS, and the Heat would rather keep Whiteside.
30 Sep 2015 02:27:55
Thunder get Demarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, Ben McLemore, and Gary Neal
Wizards get Kevin Durant
Kings get Bradley Beal, Serge Ibaka, Otto Porter, Mitch McGary, Anthony Morrow, and 2016 WAS 1st round pick
Pf. E. Kanter/ N. Collison/ S. Novak
Sf. R. Gay/ K. Singler/ A. Roberson
C. D. Cousins/ S. Adams/ D. Johnson
SG. B. McLemore/ D. Waiters/ G. Neal
Pg. R. Westbrook/ D. Augustine/ C. Payne
Pf. Nene/ K. Humphries/ D. Gooden

C. W. Cauleystein/ K. Koufas/ D. Dukan
Sg. B. Beal/ M. Bellinelli/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Rondo/ D. Collison/ S. Curry
30 Sep 2015 02:59:00
Ibaka and WCS aren't ideal fits together exchange Ibaka for Kanter because he would bring the post scoring that the Kings would need and WCS would bring the defense that would perfectly compliment him
30 Sep 2015 04:11:26
Exchange Ibaka for Kanter. Kanter is a better fit next to WCS
30 Sep 2015 17:58:14
I'm sure most will disagree, but I don't think OKC can get that kind of return for Durant. If Washington thinks they can get home in free agency, they'll wait and hold onto Beal. If they don't think they can get him in free agency, then he'll bolt after this season anyway.
Howard and Melo really killed the "superstar in a contract year" deals. Howard put the fear in the teams that receive the player that he'll bolt and leave you with less than nothing. Melo made people realize, if you're going to come here, we probably shouldn't strip our team bare to do it.
30 Sep 2015 18:49:13
sacremento says no
30 Sep 2015 18:51:30
giving up too much for kd
01 Oct 2015 00:10:50
Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Gary Neal, and next years late 1st round pick is not too much to get Durant now and be able to lock him in 4 another 5 years instead of 4. this guarantees Washington an extra 2 seasons with Durant. this year and the 5th year they could give him on his extension
01 Oct 2015 13:44:39
The problem jbabby: it guarantees Washington nothing. ask the lakers how trading for Howard guaranteed them two extra years with him.
27 Sep 2015 20:53:10
Celtics Get: DeMarcus Cousins, Steve Novak, Steven Adams
OKC Get: David Lee, Kelly Olynyk, Dallas 2016 1st
Bulls Get: Rudy Gay
Kings Get: Taj Gibson, Dion Waiters, Evan Turner, Tyler Zeller, Doug McDermott, Chicago 2016 1st, Celtics 2016 1st, Brooklyn 2016 1st
I know that the salaries don't perfectly match up, OKC need to shed a couple million more, but I think this is a solid base for a potential DeMarcus Cousins trade
27 Sep 2015 22:18:39
Kings say no
26 Sep 2015 22:32:46
OKC Get: Darren Collison
Kings Get: Cameron Payne, Anthony Morrow
25 Sep 2015 18:30:29
I don't think the Kings will trade Cousins unless they get another all-star in return. Their new arena is being built and will be ready for the 2016-2017 season. They cannot open that arena with a torn down team in a full blown rebuild.
After the season is over if OKC doesn't go to the finals:
SAC: Westbrook, A Johnson, '16 1st from BOS (via BKN)
OKC can convince Durant to resign keeping a core of Durant, Ibaka, & Cousins. Cousins has a great contract still and a year longer than Weatbrook's. They'd have to try and move Kanter somehow.
SAC gets in my opinion the most athletic and fun PG to watch. He can transform the team and be a good draw in the new arena. They are still probably a lottery team this year along with Brooklyn so they'd get 2 lottery picks to go along with Westbrook, McLemore, & WCS. Westbrook can be the man like he was last year with Durant out and average close to a triple-double.
BOS gets a 20 ppg veteran to help that team along.
25 Sep 2015 23:14:53
Not sure how durant would feel about his close friend leaving and what happens to kantar?
26 Sep 2015 00:14:04
I feel like OKC needs to give up more. Boston gives up a lot for Rudy Gay.
26 Sep 2015 00:22:05
IMO Westbrook>Cousins overall especially passion to the game and OKC already have a complete line up , Ibaka and Kanter could work well together. They just need to keep KD
26 Sep 2015 14:27:56
USA. Don't evaluate against each other. Evaluate against positions. I can name at least 5 that compete with Westbrook for best guard. Can't think of more than Davis and mayyyyy e gasol who compete for center. And honestly, gasol is too old to be considered better at this point.
26 Sep 2015 16:40:30
The Kings need a dominant center more than they need 3 PGs.
20 Sep 2015 09:39:52
Sixers get D'Angelo Russell & Roy Hibbert (exp)
sf Simmons (2016 draft)/Saric
Kings get Julius Randle & Jahlil Okafor
Lakers get Demarcus Cousins & Robert Covington
sg Bryant (1 more year)
20 Sep 2015 13:01:44
The Kings would *never* trade Boogie to the Lakers. Deal with it.
20 Sep 2015 13:11:21
IF Embiid was healthy AND the Sixers were further down the curve, I could see something like this. But Hibbert will not be a Sixer when they're finally making their playoff run and they don't need the expiring contract.
At this point, the trade is Covington and OK4 for Russell. And I think the Sixers are happy with those two given the Embiid uncertainty.
20 Sep 2015 14:59:45
I'm a huge Russell fan, but not knowing the health of embiid, I think the Sixers keep okafor and covington. Sixers pass.
20 Sep 2015 15:17:51
Kings aren't trading cousins yet. More likely at the end of the season
21 Sep 2015 15:31:53
Randle and Okafor would be the WORST defensive front court, possibly in the history of the NBA. I am not even exaggerating.
15 Sep 2015 19:15:39
with rumors swirling around Melo
Calderon Melo would packaged together
either suns for Bledsoe Tucker Morris or to Kings for Belinelli Gay Collison. No Knicks needed
15 Sep 2015 19:31:35
I choose nr 2.
15 Sep 2015 21:24:43
what rumors? they have been swirling since he signed. The knicks have ZERO urgency in moving melo, no chance they would go for either of those packages.
16 Sep 2015 13:34:12
Pizza, the rumors are just on this blog. I don't think there are any serious rumors out there in NBA land.
16 Sep 2015 16:11:47
Pizza and philly.
I actually have seen a few reports with this idea about the Suns. Not the Kings though so far. Still not a serious thing yet though.
16 Sep 2015 23:08:22
Tre, I wasnt saying have you seen reports of this trade option. the point was MELO has never said he is upset and potentially wants a trade. It's the offseason, writers need to write about something. And if there's nothing to write about, make it up.
17 Sep 2015 13:39:10
Journalism 101! Made me laugh.
15 Sep 2015 04:36:25
CLE - SAC - PHX
CLE get: Markieff Morris, WCS & PJ Tucker
SAC get: Tristan Thompson (s&t) Iman Shumpert & Devin Booker
PHX get: Anderson Varejao (exp) & Ben McLemore
15 Sep 2015 07:43:51
Bad for Phx.
15 Sep 2015 17:18:05
The Kings would go far over the cap with a max contract for Thompson, while losing two good young players that are still on their rookie contracts. No deal, and it's interesting how the other teams get rid of their problem players, while extracting the core of the King's remaining youth at the same time.
14 Sep 2015 04:21:55
Bull trade Knicks
Bulls get melo
Knicks get Noah, mirotic, mcdermout, kings top protected pick, bulls 1rst round pick 2016
14 Sep 2015 06:32:21
GMTA! Can posted this exact same trade (without the picks) two days ago, and I posted the same without the SAC pick, but CHI eating Calderon's deal for the cheap, expiring Hinrich.
It'll be hard for us fans to find a price point here (just like figuring out what DEN would accept to get Melo to the Knicks), because Anthony wields so much power here with his no trade clause. Is he open to going anywhere? Then the Knicks have more trade power to play off him off multiple buyers and perhaps get the SAC pick included. Would Melo and Lala only consider a handful of places (or any?) after signing the deal to stay in New York? We don't know, but I think the idea of a trade based around CHI sending these assets makes a lot of sense for both teams. good job.
15 Sep 2015 16:11:50
noah and melo want to play together. make no sense
13 Sep 2015 04:55:07
Minnesota Get: Martell Webster, Otto Porter Jr, Washington 2016 1st Round Pick
Sacramento Get: Kevin Martin, Anthony Bennett
Washington Get: Rudy Gay
13 Sep 2015 08:24:17
I think MIN and WAS both say yes, but SAC would want more for Rudy Gay.
13 Sep 2015 10:04:34
Washington would say no. Porter was the 3rd pick, they wouldn't give up on him just yet, and gay is too selfish
14 Sep 2015 16:33:24
Porter was the 3rd pick, and yet Bennett was the first. You don't hold on to a player because of his draft position if after a couple years of pro experience you have a better understanding of his potential. They know his potential, and it just isn't comparable to his draft slot, so that shouldn't be a hold up
14 Sep 2015 18:45:17
I agree with Pizza. I had hopes for Porter, but he has been pretty slow to develop. I understand GM's try to hold onto their struggling top picks, because it's easier to tell fans to "wait until next year" than "I drafted him too high." Still, after a couple years, the lottery shine wears off, and I don't think WAS would be too hesitant if trading Porter could improve the team, and make WAS more appealing for Kevin Durant in free agency next year.
17 Sep 2015 22:04:41
Sac would want a lil more here too. Maybe a second rounder from mn added to it. Mn has an extra one next few years. So give up one or two of those. And works. I think mn be a good restart for porter.
13 Sep 2015 04:10:53
Boston last season of rebuilding before creating a team to develop and compete:
SAC: Bradley, Sullinger, Olynyk, 2016 Mavs 1st, 2017 Grizzlies 1st, 2016 Heat 2nd, 2016 76ers 2nd
BOS: Beal, Porter
WAS: Smart, Rozier, Hunter, Young, 2016 Timberwolves 1st, 2017 Nets 1st, 2017 Clippers 2nd, 2017 Cavs 2nd
2016 Offseason FA:
Sign Conley 4 year 80M
Re-sign Beal 5 Year 90M
Sign Gerald Green 3 year 13M
Re-sign Lee 3 year 15M
Will compete for a title 2017-2018
13 Sep 2015 05:23:58
That's almost for beal and porter
13 Sep 2015 05:48:52
13 Sep 2015 06:00:06
Yeah it is, but the wolves pick is highly protected, and considering the celtics were willing to give up 4 picks for kaminsky, they can give up 3 of those picks and smart for beal and porter (plus future picks)
13 Sep 2015 13:35:17
Not enough for cousins. Boston should try to hold on to either smart or rozier.
13 Sep 2015 15:27:05
None of those picks will be good lottery picks, so the Kings aren't even interested.
14 Sep 2015 01:03:39
Boston will be a good team this year, much better than last year and who knows, they might be in the top 5 seed and stun a lot of people.
15 Sep 2015 17:32:21
The Celtics are only a playoff team in the east, not a contender, and they wouldn't even make the playoffs in the west. The Kings already know that they want and need Boogie. Keep on dreaming, it's more fun.
12 Sep 2015 09:17:57
Kings get Bradley Beal & Nene
Wizards get Wcs & Ben McLemore
13 Sep 2015 15:32:18
Nene is 32. The Kings won't trade youth for age.
12 Sep 2015 08:10:27
Celtics give Kelly Olynyk, Perry Jones, Two first rounders
Sacramento give Demarcus Cousins
12 Sep 2015 16:46:50
This is a joke?? Not nearly enough for cousins
12 Sep 2015 23:12:50
As much as I would love for the C's to get Boogie I totally agree with jvoug. Sullinger and Smart or Rozier would have to be included as well
13 Sep 2015 15:33:55
The Celtics don't have enough to get Cousins.
14 Sep 2015 01:17:53
The C's have more than enough for Cousins, the Kings are looking for lightning in a bottle this year but if they sux at the trade deadline there is a good chance they will trade him. And unless OKC or Cavs trade KD+ or KL+ for him then Boston will be right there waiting for him.
11 Sep 2015 05:30:55
Thunder get Demarcus Cousins
Kings get Serge Ibaka & Carmelo Anthony
Knicks get Cameron Payne, Ben McLemore & Rudy Gay
11 Sep 2015 09:51:50
Knicks would want something different for Melo and McLemore will not start AA will.
11 Sep 2015 10:45:35
Thunder don't give up enough for cousins
11 Sep 2015 15:45:05
Thunder need to give more to the Knicks.
11 Sep 2015 22:10:53
I don't believe kanter can play pf, the knicks would NEVER agree to that, and cousins is worth more than a mid round pick from this past draft and ibaka.
otherwise, great trade
09 Sep 2015 13:13:02
1. CHA - NYK

NEW LINE UP
09 Sep 2015 13:57:25
1 no. 2 no. 3 maybe?
09 Sep 2015 14:09:31
1. Salaries don't match. 2. Mirotic is not a SF.
09 Sep 2015 10:17:47
Hornets rebuild roster blow-up:
Hornets Receive: Cousins, Covington, Oladipo
Kings Receive: Jefferson, Walker, '17 Hornets 1st round
Magic Receive: Zeller, Kaminsky, Heat '16 1st round, Spurs '16 2nd round via Hornets
76ers Receive: Collison, Frye OKC '16 2nd round via Hornets
Hornets Receive: Andersen, Chalmers, Future 2nd round picks via Miami
Miami Receive: Hairston
Hornets 2016 line-up:
pretty outlandish stuff, but could make sense for each team involved.
09 Sep 2015 12:37:08
What would make you think that the Sixers would take on Nick Collison at age 34 and Channing Fry at age 32?
And what would make you think they'd take those two on at the expense of Covington PLUS the Heat 1st rounder pick?
Just to be clear, if the Sixers were to acquire those contracts it would only be as part of a salary dump and they should receive assets, not trade assets. The Sixers most certainly would release those guys and be stuck with their money on their cap as well as the losing a late 1st rounder only to have a late 2nd rounder to show for it.
09 Sep 2015 13:58:46
Also. Not getting cousins and olidapo for that batch of stuff
09 Sep 2015 16:18:47
Sixers rather have Covington.
11 Sep 2015 23:01:01
Sixers get a starting point guard in Darren collision for Covington and a late 1st, seems pretty fair?
