LAL get R Gobert, T Booker, & '17 1st rd pick (top 10 protected).
UTH gets #4 draft pick, J Hill, & T Black
LAL need a rim protector. Gobert will be in the running for DPOY for years to come and is extremely athletic for a 7 footer. He will average a double double with 2+ blocks per game and can run the floor. Whoever the #4 pick is this year I don't think will help LAL turn it around quickly. Gobert can can contribute right away and be a huge piece for their future. The lakers still need to add several pieces through FA. Sign Rondo (3 years $33M, team option on his 3rd year), D Green (3 years $22.5M), D Carroll (3 years $18M). This puts them right around this year's cap, they should have some wiggle room to offer a little more or add a couple more veteran pieces. They can make a run at Durant when he's a free agent the following year after Kobe's contract expires.
SF: Carroll/Hollis-Jefferson (#27 pick)
Utah can cash in on Gobert (who'll likely leave when he's a FA) and get a top 5 pick to add to their #11 pick this year. They should select Russell or Winslow with #4 and Cauley-Stein #11. They can keep J Hill or not pick up his team option for next year.
18 Apr 2015 00:21:47
Horrible trade for the Jazz, Gobert is years away from being a free agent and there is no need to cash in yet
18 Apr 2015 01:26:49
Utah has no reason to "cash in" on Gobert, he'll be a restricted free agent next summer and Utah will have the ability to match any offer he recieves. Utah can keep him around as long as they'd like as long as they're willing to pay him.
18 Apr 2015 01:34:35
Wait, why will he leave? He's under contract for a while. And there is zero chance. This is so dillusional. Lakers fans are so typical.
18 Apr 2015 16:59:54
He's under contract for 2 more years. Jazz are already paying Gordon & Favors. Each will make $18M in their last year. I don't know if Jazz will match a max offer somebody might be willing to make him at that time (if he continues to improve and he'll have a full season getting starters minutes), then they might lose him for nothing.
It's not like the Jazz aren't getting value for him in return. Hill's a solid young player, Young's an idiot but he can score and add energy coming off the bench and they'd get a top 5 pick.
18 Apr 2015 20:12:11
They will be able to pay him, also Hill is like 27 so not that young, also Young's contract is a complete negative with his effeciency
19 Apr 2015 07:40:59
jazz wouldn't take the Lakers whole team and all their picks next two years for Gobert. kanter however you should get and pair him with Boozer because the future of Lakers for several years will be LOSERS. Hahaha

Sign gasol 4 yrs 80mill with a player option 4th year

Draft christian wood 28 pick
Spurs would have to do a trade to full out the roster dedmon from magic and cotton from jazz
15 Apr 2015 16:32:29
Duncan and Ginobli should tell them to ram it. Adjusting is one thing, that's playing for nothing.
14 Apr 2015 15:23:32
Milwaukee sends sova and a 2nd round pick to Utah.
Utah sends 1st round pick.
Bucks draft Turner or Kaminski at 12 And Dekker at 17.
15 Apr 2015 01:46:46
"Sova" is a bad contract. You aren't getting a first for him.
12 Apr 2015 13:39:31
Jazz' Off-Season 2015/16
#10-13: PF/C Kaminsky or Turner both have the ability to spread the floor which Jazz still need at frontcourt
#40-43: best avaible PG or PF/C
#53-54 (via Cavs): best avaible PG or PF/C
Exum, Ingles(s&t, 1y 5m, to make salaries work), Warriors' 1st round pick 2017, Pistons' 2nd round pick 2017, Cash for Lawson
resign: Evans (3y 10m)
Lawson/Burke/#2nd round pick
Gobert/Kaminsky/#2nd round pick
- young, talented, athletic, team basketball, at least top5 defense, mix between Grizzlies and Spurs
- contender for years to come
- get #5 pick 2014 Exum to replace Lawson + add another 1st round and a 2nd round pick
- draft Winslow or Hezonja for SG position to build one of the biggest and most athletic backcourts in NBA
11 Apr 2015 23:55:03
Utah gets #2 pick (via min),, Pek and Richardson
Philly gets Derrick Favors and Kevin Martin
Draft: Mudiay and Grant
Min Joel Embiid, and Rodney Hood
12 Apr 2015 10:47:59
Sixers say hell no!
12 Apr 2015 13:09:51
Sixer's have too much invested in embiid to make this deal. Sixer's say NO
12 Apr 2015 14:48:18
Sixer say no to that.
12 Apr 2015 14:54:12
sixers say no because in no way does this fit their plan, Why would they want two vets when it will take a lot more than that to make them competitive again?
12 Apr 2015 15:32:05
I like Favors, except for the big extension he signed. By the time the Sixers are really making a move he'll be up for another bigger, fatter contract.
As for Martin, come on man. Why would the Sixers want a 32 year old at $7mil for another two years? For this team, I'd rather not have him than have him.
So I say no thank you to the trade. The Sixers are not going to trade through the inexpensive youth years at this point. When the core is established, maybe in two more seasons, they'll probably trade accumulated draft picks for a big time player.
12 Apr 2015 18:58:59
Derrick favors is young, talented, and actually a PF
12 Apr 2015 20:22:58
Ur crazy to think sixers want those guys
11 Apr 2015 18:50:56
I think this trade is perfect
Sacramento needs a starting PF to sit next side Cousins and Utah needs a stretch 4 to space the floor and let gobert be alone in the post
SAC gets Derrick Favors/ 2nd rounder
UTAH gets Landry, Thompson, 6th pick (porzingis)
12 Apr 2015 03:05:26
12 Apr 2015 12:41:03
Jazz don't need a PF, because they already have a top5 frontcourt for years to come (#1 at defense). Jazz rather need a real PG. Lawson would be a realistic and maybe the best fit to this young talented group
10 Apr 2015 21:52:58
Utah get Better of Celtics 1st rd picks, Kelly Olynyk and Kevin Martin
Boston get Derrick Favors and Nikola Pekovic, Utah 2nd rd pick
Minnesota get Gerald Wallace exp and Boston other 1st round pick
Olynyk/12th pick(Kevon Looney?)/Evans
11 Apr 2015 02:24:05
If wolves get the better of the two like #16 then it's a yes but otherwise no
11 Apr 2015 22:14:06
Boston cuts out Minny. Wouldn't touch Pek's deal. Boston sends Olynyk and two firsts for Favors and Utah second rounder.
09 Apr 2015 16:10:38
Utah - Minnesota - La Lakers
Utah get Kevin Martin, Robert Sacre and Rockets pick via LAL
- Utah add a veteran scorer while still has a 1st rd pick around 25th
Minnesota get Jordan Hill (team option) and 2 2nd rd picks from LAL
- Wolves dump some salaries
draft Karl Towns
Lakers get Utah 1st rd pick and Nikola Pekovic
- swallow multi-year contract of Pekovic but get a high pick probably 12-14
select DÁngelo Russell with own pick (could be Kobe's successor)
select Myles Turner with the Jazz pick
sign Demmarre Carroll and Robin Lopez
09 Apr 2015 16:59:17
Wolves would take that if they were just getting rid of Pekovic, Martin they want actual value for
06 Apr 2015 14:45:06
DEN get: George Hill, Trevor Booker, & UTAH 1st DP 2015
Draft: Hezonja (7th) & Dekker (12th)
UTAH get: Paul George & Ty Lawson
IND get: Trey Burke, Gordan Hayward, Gary Harris, & Wilson Chandler
06 Apr 2015 15:07:38
Pacers say no
06 Apr 2015 05:07:14
I think This could actually happen
Utah gets Wroten, Richardson and heat pick 16
Philly gets Hayward
Utah has their future SG in Hood, who has been lighting it up, and their future SF in Ingles has been playing awesome. Hayward is in the way of their potential. By adding a nice pick and a good 6th man in written would help the team. Also, Richardson could teach the young guys. Hayward has been on a slow decrease this season but he is still a good shooter and scorer, which the sixers need, plus he is still young.
Utah lineup: 40 wins
Philly lineup: (29 wins and improves next year)
Draft: Mudiay and (18) Hunter
06 Apr 2015 12:35:04
Philly isn't interested in him
06 Apr 2015 12:59:56
Great logic. Hayward is in the way of young swingman Rodney Hood- who's recently had some good games. So Utah trades Hayward to the Sixers, who obviously would want the max contract Hayward to be in the way of their young swingman Robert Covington, who's averaging 4 more PPG than Hood.
Hayward is yours. You signed him to the max deal. You better want him and like him for a long, long time. Oh, and you want a first round pick AND Tony Wroten from the Sixers to take the max contract off your hands.
Sorry. I don't think so. I might consider talking about Rodney hood. But not Hayward. He's not the guy I'm breaking my salary structure for and not the guy I"m moving Wroten and a first for.
06 Apr 2015 16:08:31
Gotta agree wth phillyrich. Bad reasoning in this trade. Sixers rather have the pick and draft a hood of their own. They don't want average players on max deals!
06 Apr 2015 17:27:38
Exactly. I'd like to draft a Rodney Hood or Hayward. Actually, I wanted to draft Rodney Hood last year.
You have to remember that each team has limited resources and the team that does the best with those resources (and has some luck) is typically a top team.
The Sixers were middle of the road for a very long time because they managed their cap poorly. Then they used draft picks to try to acquire players and get over the hump.
Its taken 2 years to undo that. There's no way the Sixers are taking on a max contract right now. They have to wait until the team formulates a little more to see exactly which player they want and at what position.
Although for Kevin Love, Anthony Davis or Labron I might change my mind. I felt the same way about Durant before his foot became an issue.
06 Apr 2015 21:24:10
02 Apr 2015 02:22:06
Blockbuster at draft night
Jazz trade Exum, Burke, 2015 1st round pick
Jazz get Lawson, Cavs' 2015 2nd round pick via Portland
Nuggets trade Lawson, Faried
Nuggets get Exum, Ross, Utah's pick 2015, Cleveland's pick 2015, Raptors' pick 2015
Cavs trade 2015 1st round pick, 2015 2nd round pick via Portland
Cavs get Burke
Raptors trade Ross, 2015 1st round pick
Raptors get Faried
- Lawson fits perfectly in Jazz' system
- starting 5 looks like a real playoff threat for every western conference team for years to come. something special can be built in Utah!
- add talented 2-guard Exum and talented wing Ross + 3 x 1st round picks!
- complete rebuild through 1 Off-Season (2 talents, 4 x 1st round picks), try to trade Hickson and Chandler if they don't want to be a long-term part of the rebuild
- give up 2 picks (#23-27 & #53-57) in this years draft for Ohio native Burke whose mentality fits in at Cleveland and who represent an immediat help from the bench
- Raptors sacrifise talented Ross to complete roster at their weakest position PF with the Manimal Faried
- still talent to develop (DeRozan, Faried, Valanciunas, Cabooclo)
- If Caboclo can develop into a starting 5 caliber player (he has the talent): Lowry-DeRozan-Caboclo-Faried-Valanciunas + bench Vasquez, Williams, J.Johnson, Patterson, A.Johnson!
03 Apr 2015 18:08:46
Too much for Lawson. Exum or the pick, not both.
30 Mar 2015 21:01:03

Spurs get t Burke, t booker, bryce cotton and 2015 first rnd pick
Jazz get mills, diaw, anderson, spurs 2nd round pick
21 Mar 2015 20:05:56
Hahahahhahahahahahahhaah so the Spurs get the better players AND the first rounder. Gotcha.
21 Mar 2015 21:37:37
Why are the Jazz going to do this? This trade makes no sense.
19 Mar 2015 15:09:36
MIL get: Jodie Meeks & Greg Monroe (s&t)
Draft: Justin Anderson
UTAH get: John Henson
Draft: Kevon Looney
DET get: Trey Burke, OJ Mayo, Trevor Ariza, & Ersan Illaysova
Draft: Justice Winslow
HOU get: Brandon Jennings
Draft: Frank Kaminsky
19 Mar 2015 15:45:15
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
The trade is very good but instead of Anderson bucks draft kaminsky or dekker GO BADGERS
10 Mar 2015 19:09:27
Spurs off season
Resign Duncan and ginobili cheap
Draft christian wood or a center
Marc Garcia is a option too I don't know his draft status
Sign and trade with jazz

Pistons get splitter and anderson
Sign and trade with pistons
Spurs get Monroe and kcp
Pistons get diaw, and a pick
10 Mar 2015 20:10:19
jazz get splitter. My correction
10 Mar 2015 21:02:54
Monroe is an unrestricted free agent.
10 Mar 2015 21:29:59
Lol no one but the Spurs want those trades my friend.
10 Mar 2015 17:44:32
LAL get: Trevor Booker, Nik Stauskus, & 2015 1st DP SAC
Draft: Karl Anthony Towns (4th) & Kelly Oubre (7th)
SAC get: Julius Randle & Trey Burke
UTAH get: Jordan Hill & Darren Collison
Draft: Justice Winslow
10 Mar 2015 21:30:32
Towns will be gone by 4
10 Mar 2015 21:54:22
50/50 that he's gone.
10 Mar 2015 08:15:55
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.
