Milwaukee and Utah

Trey burke for nate wolters

rmancel2000


I think Wolters will actually be a solid player. Burke won't be a star and will be nothing specials but right now this trade just makes zero sense for the Jazz

LeBron is essentially the Cavs new GM and he loves Anderson Varejao, therefore I don't see him going anywhere.

not big news.

pistons hired tim hardaway sr to the coaching staff so I came up with a trade that would bring hardaway jr to the pistons
===============================
- PISTONS GETS:
SG TIM HARDAWAY JR (NYK)
PF AMARE STOUDEMIRE (NYK)
C RUDY GOBERT (UTA)
'15 2ND ROUND PICK (UTA PICK) (UTA)

- KNICKS GETS:
PG ALEC BURKS (UTA)
'15 2ND ROUND PICK (CLE PICK) (UTA)
SG KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL POPE (DET)
PF GREG MONROE (S & T) (DET)

- JAZZ GETS:
PG WILL BYNUM (DET)
PF JOSH SMITH (DET)
PF ANDREA BARGNANI (NYK)
'15 1ST ROUND PICK (NYK)

after this deal the cap situation would be:

DET = about $60,444,954 which is under the cap max and not having to pay any luxury tax

NYK = about $66,000,832 but with using the trade exception they have they would be at $62,363,759 which is under the cap max and the would send labeyrie and antetounnmpo overseas

UTA = about $81,634,384 which is over the luxury tax so they can pay whatever the tax bill would be or have the option of releasing bargnani to be at $70,134,384 which is still above the cap max but they could also pay the $6+ million in the luxury tax which would be cheaper for them but they could choose to keep bargnani

ROSTERS MATCH

Could you do me a favor and use capital letters instead of lower case letters because I'm having troubles reading your posts

Warriorsalltheway


Not a bad deal, just Knicks would have to keep Bargnani bc jazz couldn't do the trade, receiving to much cap

NBA


Detroit is not trading KCP so that kills this deal, in addition, they are looking for a starting SF not an Over the hill bad contract C/PF, A nobody and a late second round pick for two Starters Monroe and KCP No thanks.

totellthetruth


Ran out of time when I was posting this

the jazz could use a trade exception from the knicks which they own and takes away about $3,400,000 and then release bargnani and the contracts would be good

they would then sign a vet to a vet minimum so the contracts work out

cookie24


No KCP

Wolves:
Rubio/Williams/Shved/LaVine

Jazz

TopsyKretts


Lopez is good but the Warriors don't want an even MORE injured guy than Bogut

Warriorsalltheway


The warriors need Bogut. His defensive ability helps to overshadow Lee's incapabilities on that end. The team would be greet offensively with Lopez, but less than average defensively.

Jazz Monroe 16 mil for 4 year

the young squad

Buke/ burks / John Lucas III
Exum/ Novak / Clark
Hayward/ Hood
Favors/ Evans / Thomas
Monroe/ Kanter/ Golbert

Yes I am a Jazz Fan, But is not imposible

Alexazul


It's not impossible, you're correct, but even at those dollars, I think the Pistons match and work out a sign and trade.

SAS Champs 2014


The Jazz didn't match Hayward what makes you think they would offer that for Monroe when they have a ton of big men on their current rost and Detroit will match.

totellthetruth


Is that 16M a year or 16M total?

If Monroe leave for a 4 year 16mill I'll go crazy. but I think u mean 16 a year so maybe.

Warriors clear cap space for Love next yr while getting a younger and healthy center.
jazz take on more experience and salary to gain better talent. Put Australian duo together. Knicks clear Amarespace at the cost of Shumpert.

Warriors get Amare-exp Kantar Shumpert
Utah get Bogut Iggy
Knicks get Armstrong

Now Knicks package Bargnani Hardaway Larkins to Sixers for cap relief. All 3 players cost the same as Jeremy Lin but worth more talent than lin and late 1st.

Now lebron & Melo in NY is realastic

shizzee


The 4 player that the warriors aren't trading: Steph, Iggy, Bogut, and Klay Thompson. You just traded two of them for stuff they don't want. They would do way better just trading for love, and a tons better with what they already have.

Jazz and Bucks

Jazz get Knight and 2nd rounder

Bucks get Burke

Jazz do it to have a lineup of Exum, Hood, Hayward, Favors, Kanter and have a scoring pg off the bench in Knight and a future 2nd rounder for giving up a younger more talent rookie.

Bucks do it to get a decent floor general who knows how to make his teammates better and will be a better fit for this team they give up a 2nd rounder but they have their pg of the future.

Galaxy Gordon


Burke's career trajectory and potential are well ahead of Knight's.

Rockets offseason

--> rockets want to add another all-star player to their roster and bosh is a player that they would like to have. he can be great fit near howard. here is my offseason plan for rockets:

- opt in p.beverley
- opt out t.daniels, r.covington and o.casspi
- trade lin, matiejunas, i.canaan and 2015 1st round pick for 2015 2nd round pick (via grizzlies) of Jazz

Salary cap: 63.2m
Players under contract: d.howard (21.4m), j.harden (14.7m), t.jones (1.6m), p.beverley (0.9m) and r.covington (0.2m - waived)
Cap space: 23.9m

- sign c.bosh (4-year, 90m: annual salary increase is 4.5%, first year salary is 21m)
- sign k.hinrich (2-year, 6m)
- match any offers for c.parsons
- sign c.butler (2-year, 6m) via MLE

Parsons - jefferson - brooks
Bosh - jones
Howard - o'neal - gooden

You forgot to add the cap hold on Parsons, Capela . Bosh is not worth 22.5 million a year

Attention everyone who has been using the Utah Jazz in dumb trades. Let me give you some info. before you waste more time. The Jazz will never be able to use cap space. Big name free agents will not sign there. They have to build through trades or the draft. The Jazz will be selling their cap space just like they did last year.

THIS IS GREAT FOR TEAMS LIKE THE BULLS AND ROCKETS.

Anyone that needs a salary dump to go after a big name can use the Jazz.

Now, the Jazz will not take your teams crap for free. They will expect assets in return. They will not give up any player unless they get a better player in return.

Also, Gordan Hayward will be playing for the Jazz next year. Like I said, they cannot use their cap space. They will, therefore, match any offer to Hayward.

Here is an example of a trade that would work.

Jazz get:

Carlos Boozer
Nikola Mirotic
Mike Dunleavy

Bulls get:

Carmelo Anthony

Bulls use Jazz as a salary dump in order to pick up Carmelo. the Jazz get a young European prospect and a veteran backup in Dunleavy. Bulls may have to throw in a pick.

That may not be a perfect deal, but you get the point. Only trades like those will have any chance of actually happening.

True Jazz Fan

Good job buddy. Lol

shizzee


It might sound simple, but you would be surprised to read some of the proposed deals on this site. Read some older posts.

I don't know every team, but I would love to read some proposals that would actually benefit both teams and work.

mburcham


Can you explain how the jazz can sign and trade Melo? You have to send something to the knicks since they are the only ones who can sign and trade Melo

EDakaEH


Melo is a free agent. A sign and trade isn't necessary. The Jazz simply give the Bulls the cap space to sign him.

utah jazz offseason.

current lineup:
Burke / Watson / Lucas lll
Hayward / Burks / Rush
Williams / Jefferson
Favors / Evans / Murphy
Kanter / Gobert

>let Hayward go

sign -
~ Trevor Ariza ' 4y 44m
~ Dante Exum ' 5y 20m
~ Rodney Hood ' 4y 3m

new lineup:
Burke / Lucas lll
Exum / A. Burks
Ariza / Hood
Favors / Evans
Kanter / Gobert

Promising young team in years to come. When Favors develops a jumpshot game and when Enes Kanter develops a post up game.

z123


I thinking Jazz try Sing Monroe and Keep Hayward

Alexazul


Why wouldn't the jazz sign Hayward? They have all the cap space in the world and no real free agents will go to Salt Lake. They will probably be the recipient of a salary dump like they were last year.

cleveland gets Gordan Hayward s&t 5 yrs 60 million and Rudy Gobert

utah gets Dion Waiters and Andy Varejao


cleveland lands a great sg who is unselfish and a good team player. I think he would be to this Cavs team what Peja Stojakovic was to the Kings


pf. T. Thompson/ A. Bennett/ D. Powell
sf. A. Wiggins/ A. Gee/ C. Felix
c. T. Zeller/ R. Gobert
sg. G. Hayward/ S. Karasev/ J. Harris
pg. K. irving/ J. Jack/ M. Delladova
-Still has cap space to sign Greg Monroe or an upgrade at starting center


Utah gets a dangerous 3 guard line up of Burke, Exum, and Waiters. also gets insurance at center with Varejao since we still don't know what Kanter will or can do

pf. D. Favors/ E. Murphy
sf. R. Hood/ J. Evans/ M. Thomas
c. E. Kanter/ A. Varejao
sg. D. Exum/ D. Waiters/ D. Garrett
pg. T. Burke/ A. Burcs/ J. Lucas
-This leaves the Jazz with cap space to try and go after a Luel Deng or Trevor Ariza type of free agent SF

jbbaby


Idk if Utah is willing to give Gobert as well. He's young and on his rookie contract while Kanter will be expiring and may not be there next season and same with Vareajo.

Ahhs10


Every year I see stuff like this. They Jazz actually want to build a team. They are not here to be a pawn for everyone else. I can end the trade above right now. The Jazz sign Hayward and keep him. Gobert is the back up center. That is better and cheaper than what you suggest they do with Cleveland. Oh, and by the way, the 2nd round pick is worthless to them. They have 7 players under 23 years old and they were all were all 1st round picks. Why would they trade their best young player and the massive 2nd year center for a player that is not as good as Hayward, an old man with little left, and a 2nd round pick. They trades have to work both ways people.

What Lakers should be doing instead of waiting for Carmelo/Lebron:

Steve Nash will retire if traded away from Lakers. Lakers should trade him to a team with cap space and who are well under the cap in exchange for a future 2nd round pick or a role player. A team with such cap room would be Utah. Nash would most likely retire from there, or keep him to mentor Exum or Burke.
Lakers salary includes: Kobe (23.5) + Robert Sacre (900k) + Julius Randle (2.4) + Jordan Clarkson (n/a) = 26.8M

-Make Eric Bledsoe an offer of 4 years, 62 million
(commentary) Hopefully Phoenix doesn't match due to the fact that they already have two point guards in Dragic and Ennis, and they can save that money to make an offer for Greg Monroe, a center of which they're weak at the position.

-Sign Loul Deng to a 4 year, 48 million deal

salary: 53.9M
(notes):
-the rookie exception will take place once the Lakers go over the cap, which they will, and it will exclude Julius Randle's contract
-Lakers have Gasol's bird rights. If they sign him, it will allow them to go over the salary cap.
-Lakers have 2.8M trade exception from Steve Blake.

Role players:
-Emeka Okafor to MLE (1 year, around 5 mil)
-Nick Young to a 3 year, 12 million deal
-Jordan Farmar to a 2 year, 4 million deal (using trade exception)
-Ryan Kelly to a 2 year, 2 million deal
-DeJuan Blair to a 1 year, 1.5 million
-Caron Butler to a 1 year, 1.1 million deal (vets mini)
salary around 62M

-Sign Pau Gasol to a 2 year, 16.5 million deal
salary at 70M

Summer League players that Lakers should sign:
-LaQuinton Ross (800k) - non guaranteed

Hire either Jeff Van Gundy or B. Scott

PG: Eric Bledsoe/Jordan Farmar/Jordan Clarkson
SG: Kobe Bryant/Nick Young
SF: Loul Deng/Caron Butler/LaQuinton Ross
PF: Julius Randle/DeJuan Blair/Ryan Kelly
C: Pau Gasol/Emeka Okafor/Robert Sacre

50+ win team IF all consistently healthy, depth and rookie-vet balance good enough to make a deep playoff run but all depends on the coach and what he preaches.

LAkids


Sounds awesome and believable to me. the only unbelievables this should get will be from Lakers fans that are only happy with Lebron or Carmelo. I like Nate McMillain as a coach however

jbbaby


Oh and Dejuan Blair will be in the 3 to 4 million per year range. he won't take 1.5

jbbaby


Suns will match any offer to Bledsoe.
