Great game by OKC this was a trial and now we know what need to fix.
Low post defense. Adams preformed poorley tonight on defense I thought Kanter did better shutting down passes and cuts. (Make him a starter)
Perimeter D was good but adding a guy like Courtney lee or Avery Bradley is what we need
Trade Agustin Mcgary and a 2017 1st pick for Alec Burks (isn't enough but atleast try and see if utah is willing)
Trade Agustin Mcgary 2nd round pick for Courtney Lee.
07 Feb 2016 07:48:36
You've got to realize that they also didn't have Andre Roberson.
07 Feb 2016 09:39:54
As been saying, o'quinn or james johnson to improve interior D in 2nd unit and play along kanter (mcgary+morrow+2nd should do it i think)
07 Feb 2016 12:48:40
I know they didn't butis he really the answer at SG?
07 Feb 2016 16:37:50
No but he would've helped with defense.
07 Feb 2016 18:04:01
They are looking for 2 way player, but probably don't have assets for one (unless they give up someone important from rotation) .
IMO they should put Waiters in 1st unit, he is decent on D, and can still improve, on offense he should learn to play off the ball, and has already shown signs of improvement there, along KD and Westbrook he can be only better.
Add some D under the rims in 2nd unit, and you have quite decent squad with Payne-Robinson-Singler-O'Quinn (let's say) - Kanter (even shortening it for playoffs, and they have possibly the best 1st unit)

Cavs send k. love, mozzy 10.5 million trade exception mo willams
Cavs get g. hayward Rodney hood Utah #1 in 2016.
07 Feb 2016 04:48:52
Jazz have favors and Hayward is thier star no way this happens.
07 Feb 2016 05:24:53
Trade exception doesn't work that way.
06 Feb 2016 19:10:25
Jazz trade Favors and Hayward
Clippers trade Griffin and Stephson
Jazz get their superstars
Clippers get someone at the 3 that they need and someone to replace Blake at the 4.
Win Win for both teams. Salaries match up.
06 Feb 2016 19:56:38
That would be nice, but I think it is bit too much even for blake. (UTA is left with a hole on the wing)
06 Feb 2016 20:05:57
06 Feb 2016 21:03:54
BATTLE OF THE NATES!
06 Feb 2016 02:18:16

Hornets get Burks.
06 Feb 2016 02:15:12
Jazz get Turner (play false PG) send Booker and 2rd 2016.

I know there are bigger, better and more interesting trade ideas with all of the trade rumors swirling around today. But as a Timberwolves fan, I've got to try to make some deal happen.
Here are a variety of Kevin Martin trade ideas. All of the trades are with teams that have either been mentioned in rumors as having interest in Kevin Martin or that could use extra scoring punch of the bench. All of the trades work as far as the salary cap is concerned (confirmed with ESPN NBA Trade Machine) . Tell me which one you think is most likely and most realistic.
Minnesota and Cleveland:
- Kevin Martin to Cleveland using their 10 million dollar trade exception (Acquired in Brendan Haywood trade) and Minnesota's 2019 second round pick (Traded to Cleveland in Tyus Jones deal) .
Minnesota and Memphis:
- Kevin Martin to Memphis for Courtney Lee and Bostons 2016 2nd round pick.
Minnesota and Dallas:
- Kevin Martin and Tayshaun Prince to Dallas for Raymond Felton, Dwight Powell and Dallas' 2017 2nd round pick.
Minnesota and Oklahoma City
- Send Kevin Martin and Tayshaun Prince to the Thunder for Steve Novak, Josh Huestis, either the Ish Smith or the Perry Jones trade exceptions and 1 or more of the Thunders 3 2016 2nd round picks: (Their own, The Hornets' and The Kings') . Also, the rights to recently drafted Kentuvky big man Dakari Johnson could be sent instead of a second round pick.
Minnesota and Los Angeles Clippers:
- Kevin Martin and Tayshuan Prince to the Clippers for Jamal Crawford, CJ Wilcox and the Brooklyn Net's 2016 second round pick.
Minnesota and Miami:
- Kevin Martin and Tayshaun Prince to Miami for Chris Andersen, Jarnell Stokes and Miami's 2018 second round pick.
Finally, if none of the above trades, or any other trade is possible, the Wolves could trade Martin to Philidelphia in a pure salary dump.
- Kevin Martin and the Houston Rockets 2016 2nd round pick (top-45 protected) to Philly for a player.
Other teams that have been rumored to have been interested, or could use Martin: Sacramento, Milwaukee, Toronto, Detroit, New York Knicks, Washington, Houston, Portland and Utah.
Obviously as you can see, I think that Kevin Martin can be a valuable piece for a team competing for a playoff spot and that needs three point shooting and scoring off the bench. I put Martins trade value as an expiring contract (simply to make the numbers work) and another young prospect and/ or second round pick. I also think that Tayshaun Prince could be a valuable piece for a playoff team as a wing defender. He has playoff experience and is still a viable defensive small forward two couples together makes sense. What Martin lacks in defense, Prince provides.
I put a lot of time into making this. So please take the time to read it and give me feedback as to which trade you think is most realistic, most likely and most logical. If you have another possible trade or a counteroffer, please comment that as well. If you think Martins value is less or more than I stated, let me know.
Finally, here's another possible trade just for fun:
Kevin Martin, Adreian Payne, the Houston Rockets 2016 second round pick (top-45 protected) and the Minnesota Timberwolves 2018 second round pick
This might be a stretch, as the Suns seem to think Morris has more trade value than he really does. However, I think Morris would fit nicely into the 'Wolves' core. Also, if the Suns are ready to blow up their roster, why would t they trade that headache for a power forward with potential: Adreian Payne and 2 second round picks.
04 Feb 2016 22:09:10
Jazz get Carter-Williams
Bucks get Jazz 2016 2nd rd pick and Warriors 2017 1st rd pick.
04 Feb 2016 19:24:59
MCW and Moose
Exum, Gobert, Lyles, Booker.
04 Feb 2016 19:44:33
Hell no from Utah.
04 Feb 2016 19:58:45
Utah getting killed in this trade.
04 Feb 2016 21:32:16
My assumption is this is a joke. If it isnt, just claim it is. its awful.
04 Feb 2016 09:25:13
Jazz trade Burks, Booker, 1st round pick 2016 (top 5 protected)
Jazz get Rubio, Anderson (expiring contract)
Wolves trade Rubio, Jones
Wolves get Bledsoe
Pelicans trade Anderson, Gordon, 1st round pick 2016 (top 6 protected)
Pelicans get Burks, Morris
Suns trade Bledsoe, M.Morris
Suns get Gordon (expiring contract), Jones, Booker(expiring contract), Pelicans 1st round pick 2016 (top 6 protected), Jazz 1st round pick 2016 (top 5 protected)
- Jazz have a nice young core but they lacked playmaking and perimeter shooting... Rubio and Anderson will exactly do provide that. In addition to their elite defense, Jazz can be a contender for years to come
- Bledsoe for Rubio, both have injury concerns but what Bledsoe gives to the Wolves is strong hustle, more leadership and far better shooting which will take pressure off the young talents (Wiggins, Towns, LaVine)
- Bledsoe also can be a 10+ assist player with this high talented roster if he stays healthy
- Morris and Burks can be upgrades to the roster if Morris is in form and Burks is healthy. If they play more small ball (Holiday-Burks-Evans-Morris-Davis) they can be a nightmare match-up for every team in the NBA (Gentry will exactly do that!)
- Pelicans also get their needed roster change
- 2 additional 1st round pick 2016 (select best possible PF or SF)
- immediate rebuild = many talents, huge cap flexibilty (Suns can sign PF in FA) + many trade assets
04 Feb 2016 11:21:27
While Bledsoe is a better scorer than Rubio, Rubio is the better passer and defender, and will not miss the rest of the year to injury.
04 Feb 2016 11:53:28
Terrible for the Suns, due to the protections on the picks. Terrible!
04 Feb 2016 14:57:05
Makes no sense for Pels.
04 Feb 2016 17:13:33
Rubio is absolutely not a better defender than Bledsoe. Rubio is a terrible defender, don't be fooled by his steals numbers.
04 Feb 2016 18:34:31
Ben, look at the advanced stats. Rubio is a better defender than Bledsoe.
04 Feb 2016 18:37:26
Also Ben, according to ESPN, Rubio is no 1 among PG in real plus minus defense.
04 Feb 2016 22:08:47
carl, doesn't matter. ben has made it clear for weeks, he knows better than stats, espn, advanced stats and scouts. he's the best!
05 Feb 2016 00:49:33
Stats are amazingly overrated. I honestly haven't watched much minny this year, but Rubio thoughout his career has been a bad defender. He's like Allen Iverson, tons of steals, but consistently gives up a lot of big plays.
03 Feb 2016 05:35:29
Hawks trade Teague
Jazz trade Burke, Celtics and Warriors 2016 second round picks, Warriors 2017 first round pick
Hawks are looking to move Teague as they feel Schroder is their future at starting PG. So flipping him for 3 draft picks plus Burke (who would be a good option at back up PG on a cheap rookie contract) is a solid return.
The Jazz add a former all star who is still young enough to fit into their long term plans and is under contract for next season as well at about $8M. He gives up an upgrade at the one weak spot in their starting lineup and helps them make a playoff push.
03 Feb 2016 10:17:45
The picks are crap and Burke is a mediocre backup.
02 Feb 2016 18:57:07
UTA/ IND/ ATL
UTA get Paul George and George Hill
** Utah can compete now for the best defensive teams and get their superstar to be a legit west playoff contender
* sign couple of vets for their back ups
Pg Hill/ Exum/ vet
Sg Hayward/ Millsap/ vet
Sf George/ Ingles
Pf Lyles/ Booker
Ce Gobert/ Whitey
IND get Derrick Favors, Rodney Hood, Jeff Teague, 2 1st round picks from UTA and 2 2nd round picks from ATL
** Utah get 3 young guys who could immediately help their team. A stud PF and PG and a shooter plus plenty of picks would be a nice Paul George return
Pg Teague/ Young
Sg Ellis/ Stuckey
Sf Hood/ Miles
Pf Favors/ Hill/ Allen
Ce Turner/ Mahinmi
ATL get Alec Burks and Trey Burke
** get 2 young back court guys
Pg Shroeder/ Burke
Sg Burks/ Bazemore
Sf Korver/ Sefolosha
Pf Millsap/ Scott
Ce Horford/ Splitter.
02 Feb 2016 10:20:44
Hawks/ Kings/ Jazz
Hawks get: Rudy Gay, Willie Cauli-Stien, and Ben Mclemore
Jazz get: Jeff Teague, Thabo Sefolosha, Mike Scott
Kings get: Alex Burks, Raul Neto, Trevor Booker and a Jazz or Hawk 2nd rounder
Too much? Too Little? Just right?
02 Feb 2016 11:29:00
Ridiculously bad for SAC.
02 Feb 2016 22:25:18
Agree- Sac gets hammered in this one
01 Feb 2016 16:55:41
UTA get Al Horford and Jeff Teague
ATL get Derrick Favors and Alec Burks
UTAH to playoffs
ATL go younger.
01 Feb 2016 17:08:27
Horford can walk this summer if he wants. That's a huge risk for Utah. Favors is a stud when healthy and I don't think he's ever had a serious injury before.
01 Feb 2016 06:46:13
Hawks Trades and Offseason
Hawks - Clippers
Millsaps and Bazemore for Griffin
Clippers are looking to win now and this gives them an all-star power forward that can stretch the floor for Jordan and a starting 3 man in Bazemore.
Hawks - Jazz
Tague for Burke and Burks and 2nd round pick
Jazz get their starting point gaurd without giving up a starter and Hawks get young gaurds.
Schroder/ Burke/ Mack
Burks/ Korver/ Holiday
Batum/ Sefolosha/ Patterson
Griffin/ Scott/ Muscala
The Hawks won't win with the lineup they have so they need a superstar, like Griffin, who can attract other big name free agents.
01 Feb 2016 09:46:19
Not sure LAC does the first one, value is good, but they wouldn't be able to resign Bazemore, just having early bird rights.
01 Feb 2016 12:54:21
Second absolutely won't happen. Way to big a return.
31 Jan 2016 00:48:07
Three Bucks trade ideas
Mayo, Vasquez, Copeland for Lawson and Dekker
- Lawson gets another shot elsewhere and Dekker would be a fan favorite
MCW and Henson for Russel and Young
- New PG
Parker, JOB, Ennis for Gobert and Lyles
- Parker has shown upside but he is not a 4. He would be a great fit with him and Gordon and Exum at the helm
Middleton/ Young / Vaughn
Giannis / Dekker / Ingles
Gobert / Plumlee.
31 Jan 2016 02:15:44
1,3 are ok 2 is not enough for russell.
31 Jan 2016 02:22:52
Monroe can't play PF and what happened to Lawson?
31 Jan 2016 02:48:08
I'm a big fan of Parker, but there's absolutely no way I'd trade gobert for him. I think gobert has once in a generation level defense.
31 Jan 2016 04:20:23
@NBA, soon as I sent it in I forgot. then again he may be too drunk to show up to the game. You never know :)
31 Jan 2016 11:51:00
None of those trades are even a remote possibility. Is Parker available you think?
29 Jan 2016 18:48:19
ATL-Dennis Shroeder for
29 Jan 2016 19:06:32
Teague and 2nd for Burks.
29 Jan 2016 19:36:18
You must follow Bill Simmons.
29 Jan 2016 09:21:56
CLE - UTAH
Cavs get T. Burke / A. Burks / J. Ingles
Jazz get M. Dellavedova / I. Shumpert.
29 Jan 2016 09:35:14
A resounding NO from UTAH.
29 Jan 2016 02:01:02
Jazz get K. Martin and A. Payne
Twolves get T. Pleiss and C. Johnson.
29 Jan 2016 01:58:39

29 Jan 2016 01:54:51
