i hate justic at the 3.

25 Nov 2015 15:50:20
3 Team Deal.

OKC trades Morrow
OKC gets Wroten
***Morrow isn't playing much (don't understand why), and Wroten is expiring deal. This helps Thunder gear up for FA next summer.

Philly trades Wroten, 2 second rounders
Philly gets Exum
***Let's see if Exum can live up to the hype. He will have room to play, and the Sixers need a point guard.

Jazz trade Exum
Jazz get Morrow, 2 second rounders
***Morrow is basically good at one thing, but he's really good at that one thing. He will space the floor for a Jazz team that has Gobert and Favors plugging the paint, plus they get a pair of seconds to recoup their loss of Exum.

25 Nov 2015 16:25:26
Jazz say hell no.

25 Nov 2015 16:26:20
Terrible for Utah.

25 Nov 2015 18:18:42
Exuma hurt so in the respect is a chance because they love injured guys.

How does Randle, Young, and Kelly get you Burke, Faried, and Nurkic?

16 Nov 2015 22:49:24
From a neutral standpoint, here are some big deals that I think makes sense before the deadline for a couple of teams:

IND: winslow, whiteside, deng, future 1st
MIA: george

UTA: conley
MEM: hood, lyles, 2017 GS first

BOS: cousins
SAC: lee, sullinger, rozier, 2016 BKN first, 2018 MEM first

PHX: faried
DEN: caldwell-pope
DET: Morris

CHI: melo, galloway
NYK: noah, brooks, McDermott, portis, 2016 and 18 Chicago firsts, 2017 Sacramento first.

17 Nov 2015 17:01:20
That phoenix Detroit one and the melo one looks decent but the others i don't see happening.

15 Nov 2015 18:28:20
76ers and Jazz
Jazz Trade
Derrick Favors
Trey Burke
2017 1st

76ers Trade
Nerlens Noel
Tony Wroten
2016 1st.

15 Nov 2015 19:03:11
what 2016 first are you referring to?

15 Nov 2015 19:43:38
How about Noel, wroten, and okc #1 for favors and Burke? Leave Utah's 2017 #1 out of it.

15 Nov 2015 20:09:19
IMO, it will not work for either team. Utah has Gobert to play D while Sixers have Okafor to play offense. Bigs you are swapping here complement their respective teams better.

16 Nov 2015 16:30:32
It works out tremendously for the sixers, not so much for the jazz.

Like USA said, the jazz have a defensive center in Gobert. Quite honestly, a better version of Noel.

What the sixers ultiamtely gain is a top flight, young, PF that actually plays solid offense and defense. They get an actual solid pg prospect in Burke. It just would make total sense for the Sixers. But again, the Jazz have zero interest. They have Favors locked up for 3 years. And at this point, favors is far more complete than Noel. The Jazz have a solid core team. This trade puts them back at least a year or two.

14 Nov 2015 06:53:16
Jazz get:
Patrick Beverely
Donte Montijunas
Sam Dekker
2016 1st round pick lottery protected
2020 1st rights to swap Unprotected

Rockets get:
Derrick Favors
Trey Burke

Jazz could use a solid stretch 4, the Jazz will get his rights along with just a young solid guy with tons of potential. Beverley comes in and fits the defensive skeme in Utah, he fits in great with Hayward and Burks. Beverley isn't ball dominate so that's perfect. Utah also adds Dekker, he hasn't proven anything but he was a 1st round pick and is a good shooter. Plus picks. I think it's a good deal going forward

Rockets now have a tough rough beast front court. Favors can play the 5 also. Burke fills the role as the backup PG. this team just needs to get more talented.

Beverley - Neto
Burks - Hood - Milsap
Hayward - Dekker - Ingles
Montejunas - Booker - Lyles
Gobert - Pliss

Lawson - Burke
Harden - Thorton - Terry
Ariza - Brewer - McDaniels
Favors - Jones - Harrell
Howard - Capela.

15 Nov 2015 03:42:51
Take out the 2020 1st rd pick right to swap.

11 Nov 2015 00:05:42
With memphis playing bad, roster blowup at trade deadline:

UTA: conley
MEM: hood, lyles, 2017 Golden State 1st

WAS: gasol, lee
MEM: nene, beal, oubre, porter, 2016 and 2018 Washington 1st

DEN: wright, 2016 New York/Denver 1st from Toronto, 2016 and 17 Memphis 2nds
TOR: randolph
MEM: mudiay, patterson.

11 Nov 2015 01:48:52
Why would Denver do that?

11 Nov 2015 03:25:11
Isn't Conley in the last year? And how in the world do you value gasol that high? ! ? Beal, 2 lottery picks and 2 firsts? All of Memphis is so overvalued here.

11 Nov 2015 04:08:32
Because they get a pick in the same range as the mudiay pick, plus delon wright who was also a first round pick at this years draft. Toronto get the worst of the Denver or New York pick this year, and they both will be lottery picks - with this trade Denver gets both.

11 Nov 2015 04:51:44
Because I'm sure KD would rather play with Gasol and have a big 3 with him and wall than to play with oubre and porter, and after the trade plus if KD signs there 1sts will be in the 25-30 range anyway.

11 Nov 2015 12:40:38
So your plan is to sell the future of the wizards and hope durant comes? And when he doesn't, then what? You have wall and an aging gasol and nothing else. No picks. No prospects. Nothing.

11 Nov 2015 13:15:30
Memphis and the wiz would never do that

Cleveland Cavaliers And Utah Jazz

Matthew Delly For Trey Bruke #CavsNation.Net

08 Nov 2015 14:26:48
76ers / Suns

Sixers are going to stick to the " process" ( as painful as it is, the 3 years of rebuild will pay off soon) . Keep their own pick ( likely #1-4) and Lakers, they won't be a bottom 3 team, ( likely # 4-8) and get two of the following players: Simmons, Ingram, Murray. That will give them the wing and the pg they desperately need.

Then, Sixers trade Miami #1 (1-10 protected) and a future second rounder to Phoenix for Miami's 2018 #1 or Miami's 2021 #1 (Suns have both heat picks) .

Finally, Sixers trade OKC#1 (1-14 protected) to Utah for OKC 2018 #1 (1-14 protected) or GSW 2017 #1.

This gives Phoenix and Utah an additional pick in this year's draft, since they are ahead of Philly in their rebuilding.
Sixers keep multiple picks for the future, and still add top picks to current team ( along with Saric and Embiid) . Not counting on embiid, but would be a difference maker if he does get healthy.

08 Nov 2015 14:51:02
I agree that Lakers most likely not in top 3. Sixers, kings and nets are the worst. Also agree that sixers should try to defer picks into the future.

Good thoughts.

This years draft is going to be wild since several teams have multiple picks.

08 Nov 2015 15:24:18
Kings are better and will finish with a better record than the lakers. As of right now sixers nets lakers in that order would be my prediction. Celtics are very lucky they have the nets pick along with the Mavericks thanks to a trade to win now that didn't work out.

08 Nov 2015 15:43:34
Theking. I agree that the luck of the Irish definitely shined on the Celtics with the nets #1 unprotected this year. My order for the ping pong ball race is:

08 Nov 2015 15:54:35
Could be draft where sixers lakers Celtics pick in too 3. That would be wild.

08 Nov 2015 15:55:59
Agree with King. As of right now, Lakers are one of the bottom 3 teams. Even if they're not, remember, it's a lottery system, they got the #2 pick last year while finishing 4th worst.

08 Nov 2015 16:14:16
These trades are insane. You want to trade pick this season for picks two to four season from now? That's just a waste of time in my opinion. You need players now!

However. Before I get to critical. Your ideas aren't terrible. As long we get the high first rounders those should be the difference making players. So I think the Sixers absolutely should be competitive next season. (If not I'm firing Brett and hinkie in a second. ) assuming their competitive the only way they can draft higher caliber players is if they have someone else's first rounder that year. So This trade makes sense in that regard.

08 Nov 2015 16:16:07
And the knicks had the 2nd worst record and picked 4th. It works both ways.

08 Nov 2015 16:16:40
Celtics (via nets)
That's my order.

08 Nov 2015 16:21:00
Phillyrich. although your scenario of Sixers, Celts, and Lakers picking in the top 3 would be crazy, as well as make Doc, Magic, and Larry Legend all have heart attacks, it would be a major blow to the Sixers rebuild. With injuries to Noel and embiid, the process has been already pushed back. Let's get two top picks this year, Simmons and Murray, or Ingram and Murray.

08 Nov 2015 16:40:36
I'm with you jvoug. "The Process" is getting old.

09 Nov 2015 06:35:43
Simmons is a playmaking 4 !

Just wondering how that fits phillys team surely okafor or Noel may get squeezed.

09 Nov 2015 21:55:03
And saric. And embiid (? )

Somebody would have to go or sixers trade down.

07 Nov 2015 18:23:54

Heat get Raul Neto and a protected 2nd rd pick

Jazz get Chalmers.

07 Nov 2015 19:29:34
Might go down, as the Jazz already reached out for Chalmers this summer. I'm not sure, whether they'd rather take Trey Burke + 2nd rounder, as Neto has been starting so far and Burke's minutes have shrunken in 2014/15 from 31.5 till February, then 26.5 in March and April and now only 22.2 in the first 5 games (although Exum's injured) . On the other hand Burke has been shooting good (his biggest flaw) in these 5 games and Neto still plays less minutes per game, despite being the starter. And he's cheaper. I don't know, one of the two at least probably and maybe the Heat would add Andersen for Withey or Pleiss too. Utah's got enough Cap Room and the trade Chalmers + Andersen for Burke + Withey + a 2nd rounder would save the Heat $5.7M this year (the same trade with Neto instead of Burke wouldn't work marginally salary-wise I think), while the Jazz simply could let expire Andersens $5M contract after the season and eventually resign Chalmers.

21 Oct 2015 12:24:31
I think this is a very well designed trade! For IND, I like how it helps Paul George avoid playing small ball PF, and I think the Jazz have the talent to be a more win-now team. I don't know if this is the direction PHX will go, but I really think it should be.

Good job!

21 Oct 2015 22:10:28
Thank you. majority the site will disagree because it's not Russell Westbrook or Paul George bring traded.

22 Oct 2015 02:13:48
People disagree because it isn't a wise move for the Jazz. Yeah it's a good pg replacement this year. But once exum comes back I don't see Bledsoe coexisting without the ball in his hands. The amount they would be paying him doesn't make sense for a young team like the Jazz.

22 Oct 2015 06:48:31
I can see that point, but it's not like Bledsoe can't be moved again. He will get plenty of minutes in Utah, so his trade value is unlikely to plummet. This also solves three problems for the Jazz.

1. A legitimate starting PG.
2. Utah will win more games, which makes them a more attractive free agent destination. For Utah now, this is a problem. Winning more games is important to the Jazz for financial reasons too. Because the small market Jazz can't price their tickets higher, they need sell outs to break even, which is important to their owner.
3. I assume they are using up a chunk of their cap on Bledsoe. For the Jazz, it will be easier to swap Bledsoe for a good player, than to get one with their cap space.

I agree Bledsoe is not a permanent solution, but he may put Utah into a better position.

22 Oct 2015 14:22:42
Is he a legitimate starting pg? Heres what my issue is with this trade, clearly the center piece that the Jazz get back is Eric Bledsoe. A shoot first pg, with a bad 3-point shot, making almost 14 mill a year for another 4 years.

The Jazz are giving up:

24 yo, lottery pick from 2011 in Alec Burks (a better sg than miles)

Trey Burke, 22 yo 2013 lottery pick who needs to improve his shot, but seems like he can be on par with bledsoe.

Trey Lyles, 19 yo 2015 lottery pick.

And a 1st rounder.

I don't believe the return talent-wise warrents giving up on a major part of the core of this developing, young team. The Jazz don't need a pg, they have Exum, who the organization still fully believes in.

As far as the needing to win more games, sell out more games, yada yada. that's any team. The jazz consistently sell out more than most. The issue isn't selling out the games, the issue is they don't share their arena with an NHL team and no matter what, the value of a team in Utah will always be less than say California.

They will be fine, that's why there is profit sharing in the NBA. On top, this trade brings in about 3.5 million more than going out. And it is for Bledsoe, a position the Jazz aren't too afraid of.

Bledsoe doesn't appear as tradeable as some may think. he's undersized and not a pass first player. Perhaps he develops, perhaps he doesnt, but for his cost. doesn't make much sense for the Jazz in a financial sense, in a team sense and in an organization sense. You can't be bad for 3-5 years, then take all those lottery picks that are developing and flip them for a non-star. It just would set them back again.

22 Oct 2015 15:36:14
I can see your point on value. Personally, I don't put much stock in Burke or Burks, but Lyles and a 1st are very good assets. I can also see your point on the potential for Bledsoe to not be so tradable.

I do disagree with you on Utah needing to sell out to break even. The team has always been financially prudent - perhaps moreso than any team in the league. It's a trait I admire. Utah is also one of the three smallest markets in the NBA, and traditionally, that market has one of the lowest ticket prices. The team was always in the top 7-8 in attendance, even when they weren't so good, because if you are selling cheap tickets, you better sell a lot of them.

Lately they've tried upping their ticket prices to get closer to league average, and have been suffering in attendance. Even the new ticket prices are only a third of what a team like the Knicks sells them for at MSG. The Knicks also have deep pockets and can afford to take losses. Selling out might be "Yada Yada" in New York, but this is a huge issue for Utah. And starting the season without a single competent startable PG on the team would only hurt their attendance even worse.

22 Oct 2015 17:47:01
I just don't see the financial issues with the Jazz like you do. They are in the top third in ticket sales. Far above their average away game. And they are in the middle as far as ticket prices. Their attendance is top third, with their ticket prices being the same as the cavaliers.

Additionally, the Jazz are typically very profitable, they receive between 15 and 20 million from the revenue sharing (larry coon's evaluation) and they are in the top third in operating income.

If they are so prudent, moreso than any team, then spending more on salary, giving up young core assets, and doubling on a position they have young talent to develop doesn't seem to be the logical move. Especially so from a prudent organization.

Jazz trade future second

Jazz get a vet pg
Mavs have 4pg and not a lot of minutes for Felton

Maybe if DAL sent some cash to pay for some of Felton's salary. He is clearly not worth his deal any more . Another career set back by the cheeseburger.

15 Oct 2015 02:46:29
The cheeseburger? Lol. I should've put a future second that never conveys because jazz have rookie backups.
