Why would Detroit take on bad contracts to help Milwaukee sign Monroe? He's unrestricted, btw.

19 Mar 2015 16:40:04
what will happen to KCP

20 Mar 2015 14:48:46
First off KCP is an much improving SG in this league his defense is elite and his offensive numbers are getting much better. So he is not going anywhere. Second too way too many bad contracts. Jackson is not a SG and SVG has said he is the PG of the future for this team. This trade doesn't help Detroit at all. They would be better off making a deal if Monroe is a S&T to find away to get Ryan Anderson and a SF and a solid bench player. Winslow is to slow to play SG and at 6-6 is too short to play SF he is a tweener and a bench player in the Pro's. Detroit will have a better chance at talent with higher ceiling that will fill a need at either SF or PF.

21 Mar 2015 02:54:21

Utah Trades:
Trey Burke
2015 first round pick (~#11)
2016 first round pick (unprotected)
2017 Golden State 1st round pick (unprotected)

for PHI #3 pick.

Utah Drafts Russell


Sixers get more assets, a young guard in Burke.

Sixers say no? Sixers ask for more?

10 Mar 2015 13:21:26
I would do that if it was Alec Burks, not Trey Burke. Trey is a little small for my liking and is about a 40% shooter from the field.

I'd then use the Utah 2015 pick I just got and the Miami pick and/or OKC pick I already own to try to get into the Kings' #6 spot.

So the Sixers would end up with Burks at SG, probably the foreign guy Hezonja with the #6 pick, plus the other future #1 picks you offered. They'd stash Hezonja for awhile like Saric.

10 Mar 2015 14:22:56
Knicks will make that deal. Draft kaminsky

10 Mar 2015 15:59:14
That's actually close but you can't trade consecutive first rounders. So the next first rounder would 2017. It's a risk for the Sixers though. Team needs a franchise pick. Might not be able to get one later in the draft.

13 Mar 2015 21:56:27
Actually the rule just says you cannot make trades that would leave you without a first round pick in consecutive years. SInce the Sixers have 5 that should pay off in the next 2 drafts, they could trade 2 of them.

03 Mar 2015 14:53:24
Need a trade to land trey Burke maybe parker replacement teach him a few things


Spurs get t.booker,trey Burke, Bryce cotton

Jazz get splitter,Anderson

Jazz say na

I made a Lakers offseason scenario a few weeks back (different account), and I don't quite remember all of the details-however I do remember I received a lot of positive feedback from not just my fellow Lakers fans, but from NBA fans as well. So here is another Lakers offseason scenario, more detailed with cap and contract notes. Enjoy

1. Draft day

IF and only IF the Lakers are able to keep their top 5 pick, let's say based off of mock drafts, they get pick #4; I think they should make this trade:
Lakers receive: Trey Burke (2.6M in 2016), Jazz possible 8th pick
Jazz receive: Lakers possible 4th pick

-Jazz already benched Burke in favors of Dante Exum. Next season, they will be getting back Alec Burks, who was seen to be the 6th man of the Jazz, a role and the position Burke is in. With the 4th pick, they have the possibility to get better by drafting D'Angelo Russell or Mudiay to be their future PG, and have the interchangeable back court.

Lakers Draft: Willy Cauley-Stein

2. Free Agency (available 30M)

Lakers have 30M available to spend BEFORE picking up the options of Jordan Clarkson, Tarik Black, Jordan Hill and the trade I mentioned above however the Lakers have trade exceptions worth nearly 3M (possibly expired).

Weaknesses: defense, wing scoring

well, offer:
-Jimmy Butler (4y, 80m)
*Before Bulls fans start to say "He's staying" "Chicago is offering him the max" "He wants to stay in Chicago". Look at what's unfolding in your franchise. Your MVP point guard injures his knee EVERY season for the past 3-4 years! In other words, you guys are in a grey state: not a contending team and not a bad team. The Clippers of the East. You guys have a 61M payroll next season, the cap is expected to jump to 67M. The 61M payroll does not include the contracts of Kirk Hinrich (PO) and Aron Brooks (UFA) meaning you must either re-sign them or replace them. Even if you trade away Gibson (8.5M), that would place you guys at 53M, matching any max contract would place the Bulls salary above 75M. The expected luxury line is 77M. Is he worth limiting your movement or should you guys just try to go after Wes Mathews and develop Snell/Doug? It's just a scenario so don't panic.

-Rajon Rondo (3y, 33m - 1m less than current contract)
*Very possible, Kobe plans to recruit him heavily, and that spat with Carlisle isn't helping anything. I'm sure that wouldn't be the sole reason he leaves, but like I said, it surely doesn't help. Scott would give him freedom on offense as long as he defends because Scott has horrible offense strategy

3. Re-sign

-Ed Davis (2y, 8m)

Pick up TOs

-Jordan Clarkson
-Tarik Black

*Sadly, Robert Sacre would have to be let go (money, his contract steadily increases) and Jordan Hill would cost too much to keep--Lakers would have less money to spend

PG: Rajon Rondo/Trey Burke
SG: Kobe Bryant/Jordan Clarkson/(Rockets pick)
SF: Jimmy Butler/Nick Young/(Rockets pick)
PF: Julius Randle/Ryan Kelly/Tarik Black
C: Willy Cauley-Stein/Ed Davis

-Rajon Rondo can make Cauley-Stein look like gold. a lot of lobs and easy baskets around the rim
-Trey Burke can be what Reggie Jackson was for OKC, except no one will blame him (maybe Kobe, jk)
-Lakers get a shot blocker, which is what they desperately needed.
-Front court chemistry with Randle and Cauley-Stein
-Good all around balance of defense/offense

I said the Lakers had 30M to spend, with all additions, they would have spent nearly 36M, Meaning they are 6M over but not entirely over the luxury line.

Rondo isn't going to play for lakers. He might sign with rockets. he's much older now and he wants to win not rebuild

Its funny that you mention look at what is happening with the bulls. yeah, without rose they are in the top 3. Even when the lakers had Kobe, they were in the bottom. i'd EASILY choose to stay with the bulls if I was butler.

Rondo. he's on an old contract. And now in his prime you want to offer him less. Or he can go to any of the 5-10 teams that would be willing to be more like 15 mill per year which hell get and have a supporting cast besides kobe throwing up 25 shots a game at 35%.

The jazz will not give up trey burke AND the 8th for the 4th. Its always amazing how lakers fans thinking works. Just because its la means nothing. The major markets are chicago, new york and la. The lakers have so little upside because of kobe holding everything down. Chicago is going strong and at least new york has phil jackson, a top scorer in his prime AND tons of cap space. This is a miserable post.

I do however love how you claim to have gotten so much love for a prior post with a different name for which you can't find now.

Jimmy Butler is not worth 20 million a year

Harris more realistic then Butler

Everything is reasonable, and in the case of the draft day trade, creative and fair.

That said, and no matter how much you try to ration it, the Bulls will keep Butler. Yes, Rose is out of the lineup more than in, but that's why they need to hold on to a rising star like Butler. Yes, their cap situation is not favourable, but it wouldn't be with or without Butler.

For the team options of players, teams have to decide it whatever they will pick up or not, before June 30, 2015. Also, Lakers is going to have $22-23M cap space. If they would trade for T.Burke, it would be about $21M.

Possible max contract for Butler won't be more than 4-year, $72M. Anyway, we know Bulls will match any offer for Jimmy.

1) got to commend you simply for having the contrasting qualities of being a lakers fan in 2015 and being realistic in the moves potentially made.

2) as a bulls fan, IF lakers offer butler 18-20 mil a year, bulls say no and probably blow it up or give snell a larger role

3) I think davis starts over caulie-stien

28 Feb 2015 04:36:45
76ers offseason:
1. KEEP Nerlens Noel. 14 pts, 13 rebs, 3 blks, 2 stls tonight in win vs Wiz. Starting to put groups of good games together.
2. KEEP Joel Embiid. This guy is the real deal. Paired with Noel, awesome rim protection, and he really does have post moves like Olajiwoun. He's going to be an AllStar.
3. Find some way to get Saric over for next year. He's a stud at 6'10". Outstanding passer, solid shooter, always in the right place at the right time.
4. Draft DeAngelo Russell. Whoever thinks he's going to be a bust, I just don't get it. NBA execs love him, and he can handle the ball, shoot the 3, and is an incredible passer.
5. Package Miami's #1(12-16), and OKC's #1(19-21) to move up and pick Hezonja(possibly to Utah, Bos, Indy, Det). He can light it up, and can play surprisingly good "D".
C: Embiid, Noel, Sims
PF: Noel, Saric, T.Robinson
SF: Covington, Saric, Grant
SG: Hezonja, McCrae, Rusell, Wroten,
PG: Russell, Canaan, P.Jackson, Wroten

Plus, still have 5 second round picks to work with(Orlando's and Denver's having some value, both in the #35-37 range. Also have Lakers #1 next year, only 1-3 protected. May luck out and have that pick fall to us at #6 or 7 this year. If that happens, draft Hezonja with LA's pick, Kaminsky with Miami's pick, and Grant, Lyles, Wright, Dunn or Portis with OKC's pick.

Saric is slow at 3, weak at 4. I think he should play one more year in Europe.

Sounds great. But philly gm will trade everyone away looking for the next best thing. I'm from philly. They won't win until heinke is gone. Sorry

I like what u said about sixers plans but i'm just not liking deangelo russell. I like mudiay and jerian. i'm just iffey on ohio st players

Go 76ers. as a HUGE sixers fan for 30 years, I can understand the uneasiness with an ohio state guard(see evan "stomach" turner). But, imo, Russell is just a perfect fit. Embiid and Russell will be awesome together.

I am a Turkish basketball fan and living in Istanbul where Saric's team, Anadolu Efes, is located in. I don't know but some fans are overrating him. He isn't even the best power forward in Turkish Basketball League. Fenerbahce's Nemanja Bjelica, 25, is the best 4, both in Turkey and Europe, whose rights belong to Timberwolves. I mean, first he should be the best PF in Europe before playing in NBA, like Mirotic. That's why I said he should play one more year in Europe in order to have more polished game and NBA-ready body.

Im not saying that your wrong. Maybe russell will be really good but I just don't c it yet. Who knows until it happens. Maybe sixers will draft russell and mudiay/or jerian.

Go 76ers
sixers pick Russell with their own pick and Jerian Grant with the Miami pick(11-16). I could see that developing into a exciting young backcourt.

I like it, jvoug. Especially keeping Noel and Joel. They will be the cornerstones for years. We can add Russell or Stanley Johnson early. And Portis or Kaminsky later. Next year 2-3 more first round picks. So, do not despair, faithful. There will come a point at which Hinkie will decide it's time to let it run. I think that time will be midway through next season. And in 2016-17 we will be a solid contender. Then we'll start looking to sign free agents.

I'd rather have mudiay then Russell. I need star potential and explosiveness. Russel just lacks the It factor from what I've seen. He uses his height a lot and in the NBA that just won't be there anymore. ( either the other guards are tall like him or much more athletic) Granted only seen the games they show on normal tv. Mudiay I haven't seen anything but highlights and low lights in YouTube clips. But I like a lot of what I've seen. Explosiveness for sure and he's the better shot creator which I think the Sixers could use even with noel playing better and joel coming back next year. Soi love your ideas but would like mudiay over russel for now. Wouldn't mind Stanley Johnson or a small forward if we move up either so that's fine with the euro there too.

What about sixers trade sims and saric for bobby portis and a 2nd round pick. he's going to be a stud in the nba. i'm tellin u he's going to be a steal and can possibly be the best big man in this years draft. And also draft russell and jerian. that's going to be our future right there. Then mcrae comes to philly to split time with covington at small forward.

I do like how russell is a lefty.

U don't want stanley. Trust me on that. In the very beginning of the season I wanted him. But now I don't c him fitting in with us and our future plans. And don't forget about jordan mcrae. He has some serious potential and will be a great small forward for us.

But let's be honest. I really think the sixers will pass on russell and get mudiay.

I do believe Embiid wasn't a projected lottery pick in the beginning of last years college basketball season but he made the jump to the top of the lottery. we can agree to disagree on either russell or mudiay, but keeping noel and embiid is crucial.

Jvoug. That true with Embiid as well your right. I just think Russell doesn't have anything he does amazing. Looks solid but a top pick for me has to be special. Russel does have game of course. He's no scrub. But I also take notice of his team. They're unranked and I find that unusal. If they have a top three player in this years draft, which should mean they have an elite player, why are they so underrated by scouts. It does men's something for sure.

Go Sixers. I would only go Stanley at 7 or later. That's why I think it's possible to move up to get him. He's got some talent but probably a specialist for now. And I don't actually count macree until he's here. Same thing with saric. I got to see them actually playing here before their on the roster. even if that's the case. Johnson can play shooting guard as well. He's a development guy for now though.

Mudiay is riding the bench in China -stuck behind Will Bynum, f'chrissakes.

Boy howdie. He's riding the bench because he got injured and given the super short season and the fact they can only have. Two foreign guys on the roster at a time they choose to sign will Bynum to replace him rather then wait out the injury to mudiay. That's just how it work over there. It wasn't even a controversy because of the rules there.

But before he left he passed all the eye tests. Really quick. Really fast. And has an elite athletism you don't usually see in guard. You could project him to be a Westbrook type of player. I'm not going that far yet because frankly he's only 19.

Boy howdie. I actually just saw that your right. He's officially playing again for that team in China. Coming off the bench. Putting up some good numbers but I wanted to add that in there since I thought he was done for the season overthere.

I'm ok with that. But I'd wait and draft the Grant kid from ND. I want two big guards out of this draft that can both score, shoot and handle the ball.

Embiid, Simms
Noel, Robinson
Covington, Grant
McRae, Russell
Grant, Wroten
Saric still overseas
Veteran point guard
Veteran banger inside

I think a backcourt of Russell AND Mudiay would be awesome. We take one of the two with our pick, and trade the lakers pick and OKCs pick for the rights to draft the other. Hinkie will do something on draft day, why not get his backcourt set. And we still have Miami's #1!

12 Mar 2015 19:37:12
I think Russell and J. Grant from ND would accomplish what we're looking for in the backcourt. Grant can be had in the teens. Both are about 6'5". Both shoot better than MCW. Both can handle the ball. If that's the end result this draft, along with the frontcourt we already have in place, I'm ready to run with it.

I'm still baffled by the return the 76ers got for MCW

Im shocked about the return we got for mcw. But I think its obvious now that sixers r going to draft emmanuel mudiay.

Wish pistons could have traded for Mo Harkless instead of Prince.

^It was a great return, but Mudiay's stock is falling. Expect Russell to be the pick.

I don't expect russell to be a sixer and never will. Sixers want mudiay and they will get him period. Its just going to happen.

What is the 76ers actual plan? I am so lost by these moves.

18 Feb 2015 22:09:00
Milwaukee - Utah

Milwaukee get Kanter
Utah get Pachulia, a future first draft pick

18 Feb 2015 20:40:10

Toronto gets Ersan (scoring stretch 4)

Milwaukee gets Kanter (a new big with sanders gone)

Utah gets Ross, Hayes, Toronto 1st, Bucks 2nd (exp deal, young player and picks)

Ross and first round pick for Ersan? Your kidding right?

18 Feb 2015 16:31:59
Bucks get Enes Kanter, Rodney Hood, and option to swap 1st round picks (top 3 protected for jazz which would lead for a 2016 swap option)

Jazz get Greak Freak, John Henson, and Jared Dudley

How fast can the Bucks hang up?

18 Feb 2015 03:52:19
Since Dragic does not want to resign

Hou gets Dragic Bros (backcourt strength)
PHX gets Terry and Kanter (young big man who is a RFA so they can lock him down long term)
Utah: Capela, Popanikolaou, and NOP 1st. (Start Rudy and get prospects)

Dragic wouldn't resign with Houston

17 Feb 2015 21:08:16

Suns get Kanter and a 2nd rd pick

Jazz get Thomas and Plumlee

17 Feb 2015 17:13:09

OKC get: Enes Kanter & Wilson Chandler

pg. westbrook

Jazz don't want Lawson, Exum is the future at PG. Better off sending Lawson to a fourth team for a draft pick, like. Houston.

Lawson for Terry, Shved (both expiring) and Pelicans lottery pick

Have Utah and OKC send a pick to Den

17 Feb 2015 16:11:34
Celtics - Jazz

Celtics trade Thornton (waived), Olynyk, Cavs 2016 first round pick

Jazz trade Kanter, Evans (waived)

Celtics use one of their ten first round picks (not counting the 76ers and Wolves 2015 picks likely to become a pair of second round picks each) in the next four draft to land the former number three overall player to finally solve a ongoing problem at center.

Jazz are looking for a first round pick and a young player in return for Kanter. Olynyk can play along side either Gobert or Favors giving the Jazz options and a player still on his rookie contract for two more seasons after this one.

I believe this trade helps all teams

To Utah
Plumlee 1.4
J. Jack 6.3 (experienced PG for Exum to learn from)
R. Jackson 2.3 (FA)

(plus 1.4 in salary cap

Kevin Garnett 12.0 (FA (one last ride)
(.5M in salary cap)

To Brooklyn
Kanter 6.0 FA
Burke 2.6 (young guard for D. Williams to guide)
(I know Utah likes this guy; but to inconsistent for me and not enough assists for the number of shots he takes.)
Perkins 9.2 FA
(Brooklyn down 1.9 in Salary cap and only 2.6 carry over into next year)
