Spurs need to give more.

20 Oct 2016 04:46:27
Not great for sas.

20 Oct 2016 05:28:53
You forgot to put Gortat in the trade scenario which make the trade better since it at first seems like Utah is giving up a ton for a pg who may not be top 5 pg in this league. And Green who a good sg usually but still not enough for Utahs top 3 players and two potential Allstars and a decent back up. But with Gortat is makes some sense but at the end of the day don't think Walls enough to convince Utah to jump at this trade.

20 Oct 2016 17:03:15
Im thinking that the Jazz's Gortat should be Gobert instead.

19 Oct 2016 20:04:28
Celtics will be Warriors biggest opponent in the next years.

Celtics get: Cousins
Kings get: Brown, Johnson and Olynyk +17&18 Nets Pick

Celtics get:Hayward
Jazz get: Bradley and Zeller + 18 Celtics Pick and 19 Grizzlies Pick

Celtics Team:

Thomas - Hayward - Crowder - Horford - Cousins

This Team is a Monster.

19 Oct 2016 22:22:15
The Celtics will be the Warriors biggest opponent in he next years IF they don't make these terrible deals you are proposing.

20 Oct 2016 01:43:26
I don't like the cousins trade. He is a head case that they don't need. But bringing in Hayward would make them a scary team.

18 Oct 2016 11:43:24

BOS get Kenneth Faried, 2 DEN 2nd rd pick and Gordon Hayward

Pg Thomas/ Smart/ Rozier
Sg Hayward/ Green
Sf Crowder/ Brown
Pf Faried/ Olynyk
Ce Horford/ Zeller

UTA get BKN 1st 2018 and Wilson Chandler

Pg Hill/ Exum
Sg Hood/ Burks
Sf Chandler/ Johnson
Pf Favors/ Lyles

DEN get UTA 1st round pick 2017 (lottery protected) , Avery Bradley and Amir Johnson

Pg Mudiay/ Nelson
Sg Bradley/ Murray/ Harris
Sf Gallinari/ Barton
Pf Jokic/ Arthur
Ce Nurkic/ Johnson.

18 Oct 2016 13:20:57
I don't like this at all for Utah.

18 Oct 2016 07:18:01

CHI get Gordon Hayward and BKN 1st 2017

BOS get Jimmy Butler

UTA get Jae Crowder, Jordan Mickey and BOS 1st 2018

who says no?

Bulls get a very good fit alongside Wade and Rondo and a pick from BKN which would be very good. BOS get another star while UTA get a good return in case Hayward leaves. Maybe more going to CHI from BOS

Pg Rondo/ MCW
Sg Wade/ Valentine

18 Oct 2016 09:03:38
Utah says no. The celtics would do it and I think the bulls would although it's not great for them. They would have two veteran starting guards in the 30s and now a young small forward and future pick. If you want to win championships you have to commit to rebuilding or pushing for a finals spot.

18 Oct 2016 12:00:54
I like this for all teams

Hayward is a downgrade over Butler, but he's a better fit and the Brooklyn pick makes it a good trade for them
Utah receive a cheaper player and a future draft pick. This is a great return if Hayward wants out.
And Boston recieve the star they need.

18 Oct 2016 05:35:08
Boston sends - Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko, Jaylen Brown, Kelly Olynyk, James Young
Boston receives - Demarcus Cousins, Gordon Hayward
Sacramento sends - Demarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, 2017 worst pick out of Philly/ Sac protected if Sacramento have to convey their pick to Chicago (if it is outside top 10). In that case Sacramento convey their 2020 1st round pick Utah.
Sacramento receives - Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko, Jaylen Brown, 2017 Brooklyn 1st pick swap, 2018 Brooklyn 1st
Utah sends - Gordon Hayward
Utah receives - Rudy Gay, Kelly Olynyk, 2017 worst pick out of Philly/ Sac protected if Sacramento have to convey their pick to Chicago (if it is outside top 10). In that case Sacramento convey their 2020 1st round pick Utah.
Denver sends - Will Barton
Denver receives - James Young, 2019 Los Angeles C 1st, 2019 Memphis 1st

This trade focuses on Boston getting better so I'm only going to do Boston's depth for now. Checked on NBA Trade Machine.
Boston -
PG Isaiah Thomas, Terry Rozier, Demetrius Jackson
SG Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart, Gerald Green, RJ Hunter
SF Gordon Hayward, Will Barton, Abdel Nader
PF Al Horford, Jordan Mickey, Ben Bentil
C Demarcus Cousins, Tyler Zeller

Boston have a couple more 1st round picks and lots of seconds if anybody thinks one team is getting a rip off that they could easily add.

18 Oct 2016 15:53:29
Yeah there is no way that the Celtics are trading 5 rotation players as well as 4 1st round picks for those three players.

Hayward is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and plenty of teams will be on his pursuit.

Barton is nothing special at all and only looked special because Denver had no one to score for them.

Cousins, while he is the best center in the game he is still a head case and could potential destroy the team and what we have built.

19 Oct 2016 09:59:18
well i suppose boston could do this on the basis an extension is signed prior.

18 Oct 2016 05:21:50
Thunder get Rodney Hood

Jazz get 2017 1st Rd pick, Domatas Sabonis, and Andre Roberson.

17 Oct 2016 03:04:44

Sixers acquire Alec Burks

Utah acquire Goran Dragic

Heat acquire top 7 protected 1st Philly 2018, Raul Neto and Nik Stauskas.

17 Oct 2016 13:13:57
Lottery protected maybe from sixers maybe.

16 Oct 2016 05:58:30
76ers trade:Robert covington, Hollis thompson, 2018 1st rounder.

Utah jazz trade: rodney hood.

16 Oct 2016 11:20:08
Utah could do this if they decide not to resign Hayward.
But i think they want to win now.

16 Oct 2016 11:43:19
Utah love Rodney hood. Watching him play I can say he over rated but that doesn't matter. If Utah love him he's going no where.

16 Oct 2016 05:48:06
76ers trade: Hollis thompson, nik stauskas, 2nd rounder

Utah jazz trade:alec burks.

16 Oct 2016 11:43:50
I'd do this if I was philly. But why would Utah?

16 Oct 2016 12:17:35
More 3 point shooting?

16 Oct 2016 12:21:22
Plus if you look at their roster I don't see where Burks is getting feasible minutes, so why not swap him for some bench guys who can shoot.

16 Oct 2016 15:51:06
Stauskas is a bum, a second usually ends up being an overseas player so it's basically a bench warmer for a decent role player. Jazz say no.

12 Oct 2016 22:49:25
Thunder get Gordon Hayward

Jazz get Domatas Sabonis, Andre Roberson, Cameron Payne, Alex Abrines, and 2017 1st Rd pick

Pf. E. Kanter/ E. Ilyasova/ M. McGary
Sf. G. Hayward/ K. Singler/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ J. Leveargne/ N. Collison
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Morrow/ D. Hamilton
Pg. R. Westbrook/ R. Price/ S. Christon

Hard for Utah to say no to that many young assets. OKC stays in contend now mode.

13 Oct 2016 00:05:27
Actually rather easy for Utah to say no to that. late lottery pick, role player, role player that's injured, deep role player, and a pick. awesome return for a franchise player.

You manage to offer the exact same package for basically every franchise player in the league. its awful. especially when you take a 4 to 1 trade. the jazz need to cut 3 people after making this trade. no chance. Utah is an up and comer, this is moronic.

13 Oct 2016 00:14:30
Hayward has to resign with okc before that deal can go forward.

13 Oct 2016 00:41:46
thunder won't does this because it will kill depth.

13 Oct 2016 01:24:07
How can u call 2 rookies and 2 2nd year players, role players? . clearly none of them have reached their peak.

13 Oct 2016 02:47:57
Sabonis is the only piece that would interest me, and with Favors and Gobert already in tow, he comes off the bench, and even possibly as the fourth big behind Diaw.

The rest are just average players, and the pick would be non-lottery if the Thunder landed Hayward. All this adds up to a bad deal for the Jazz.

10 Oct 2016 18:36:05
Jazz - Bledsoe, Butler.

Bulls - Favors, Hood.

Suns - Exum, Jazz 17 1st, Noel.

Sixers - Knight.

10 Oct 2016 19:37:36
Suns don't even laugh.

11 Oct 2016 02:24:19
No from the Bulls.

11 Oct 2016 06:10:19
As much as I like Jimmy Butler, I actually think that Chicago should take that trade.

11 Oct 2016 11:44:11
this would be a smart trade for Chicago, but i think they say no.

18 Sep 2016 13:00:32
Injuries are destroying the rockets.

Rockets - Exum, Favors, Burks Jazz 2017 and the 19 1st.

Jazz - Harden.

Hill/ Mack
Harden/ Hood
Hayward/ Johnson
Lyles/ Diaw
Gobert/ Withey.

18 Sep 2016 14:20:02
Hood instead of Burks.

18 Sep 2016 14:52:45
i originally had Hood and Lyles instead of Burks and Favors but the Jazz needed spacing.

18 Sep 2016 14:53:47
Hill is the dream PG next to Harden, plays good defense, great off the ball, and solid playmaker.

18 Sep 2016 16:45:18
Put Hood instead of Burks and I actually like it a fair bit for both teams. Rockets are a mess in my opinion and in this deal they get Exum who is raw but has a lot of potential, Hood who has already shown to be a solid player at a young age and Favors who I think is an underrated big that would be better suited playing center. Jazz should also drop one of their pgs since they have a ton. That Jazz team would be scary good I think getting a more stretch 4 type next to Gobert and a true go-to scorer who can create his own shot will improve Jazz leaps and bounds.

It probably isn't the greatest return for Harden who I think is better than people give him credit for but he can be kind of cancerous for a team with his ball dominating play-style and turnovers (I think his defense isn't as bad as a few videos on a loop suggest) . I don't see Rockets even a play off team with current roster so I think gaining 2 quality young players and a decent prospect as well as two future late 1sts helps the Rockets going forward. If they wanted to get rid of Brewers contract or anybody else I think they could easily throw them into the deal too.

19 Sep 2016 03:22:33
I think Hood is a better fit with James Harden than Gordon Hayward.

16 Sep 2016 04:26:50
Thunder - Exum, Burks, Lyles, Jazz 17 and 19 1st.

Jazz - Westbrook, Morrow, Ilyasova

Westbrook/ Hill
Hood/ Morrow
Hayward/ Johnson
Favors/ Ilyasova
Gobert/ Withey

This team might be able to beat GS.

Exum/ Payne
Oladipo/ Burks
Roberson/ Huestis
Lyles/ Sabonis
Adams/ Kanter

Tank for a top pick. And Lyles/ Exum might be future all stars.

16 Sep 2016 08:07:25
I truly hope Westbrook stays in OKC.

They better call Boston and trade for the Nets pick, if they want to tank.

16 Sep 2016 13:12:21
So to get Westbrook all you need is a player who hasn't played in two years. two mediocre players and two late firsts.

14 Sep 2016 21:01:51
Jazz - Butler, Wall, Valentine.

Bulls - Hayward, Favors.

Wizards - Exum, Burks, Portis, Jazz 2017 and 2019 1st.

Wall/ Hill
Hood/ Valentine
Butler/ Johnson
Lyles/ Diaw
Gobert/ Withey

Defensively the best team in the league, with scorers and a deep bench.

14 Sep 2016 22:26:36
Hayward is going to be a free agent next year.
He's a good fit in Chicago, but Butler is the better player and on a better contract.
So no way Chicago give up butler and two young talents.

Maybe they do

Chi:Hayward and Favors
Utah; J Butler and Gibson.

14 Sep 2016 23:32:36
Wizards pass. Exum wasn't impressive in his first year, Burks is usually hurt, Portis is nice but Morris is already there and those picks would be in the 20s looking at that jazz roster.

09 Sep 2016 20:47:08
Stealing USAs idea.

Jazz/ Wizards

Jazz - Wall, Oubre.

Wizards - Exum, Favors, 1st.

Jazz/ Thunder

Jazz - Mcgary, Morrow.

Thunder - Mack.

Wall/ Hill
Hood/ Burks
Hayward/ Oubre
Lyles/ Johnson
Gobert/ Mcgary

That team is deep and versatile and could really threaten GS in the west.

09 Sep 2016 21:55:16
Not USA. Well that's embarrassing sorry knickerbocker.

10 Sep 2016 13:17:06
No worries bruh

10 Sep 2016 16:24:24
i think jazz need to give a little more especially since the fit of Favors isn't great with their loaded frontcourt.

I like the general premise however of jazz going aggressively after a good pg. I hated the George hill move I would've at least preferred Teague.

09 Sep 2016 19:49:40

WAS get: Gordon Hayward, Kenneth Faried, and Dante Exum

pg. Exum
sg. Beal
sf. Hayward
pf. Faried
c. Gortat

UTAH get: John Wall and Kelly Oubre

pg. Wall
sg. Hood
sf. Lyles
pf. Favors
c. Gobert

DEN get: Alec Burks and Markieff Morris

pg. Mudiay
sg. Burks
sf. Gallonari
pf. Morris
c. Jokic.

10 Sep 2016 16:29:14
Denver is getting a great return on faried. Don't like deal for wizards and I think Morris is better than faried for that team. Jazz trade is alright but I don't like idea of lyles playing major minutes up against starting sf. They'd be better off moving favors for a real sf then sliding lyles to pf where he's compliment gobert nicley.

09 Sep 2016 15:42:05
Sixers get Trey Lyles
Utah gets Nerlens Noel and Robert Covington.

09 Sep 2016 17:00:38
Come in hoddy.

How does that even remotely help the Sixers? We loss our best shooter and best defensive player for yet another big man who isn't even as good as Noel.

09 Sep 2016 18:39:55
I am a big fan of Trey Lyles. He is six foot ten inches, and play all aspects of the game well. Noel has 1 year left on his contract and an offensive liability, and Covington is a backup on a good team. Trey Lyles, to me, has near all star potential. Look at some of the film on him from last year and in the summer league. I don't think Utah makes this trade because they see Lyles potential.

09 Sep 2016 20:03:14
Trey lyles? He has zero star potential my friend. . He'll be lucky to play in the starting line up on Utah this year. I'd take Noel ten times out of ten. And Noel and Gobert would be a formidable combo. Much better then Gobert and trey. I'd pass everytime.

09 Sep 2016 23:45:03
No because lyles can actually space the floor. Gobert and Noel=no spacing at all. Plus Noel would be behind favors anyway.

10 Sep 2016 00:56:30
Utah says no.

10 Sep 2016 03:36:50
Fine you go and keep trey and watch him do absolutely nothing this year. He's a dime a dozen and plays zero defense. Trey lyles is a bench piece.

10 Sep 2016 03:39:23
The king. So what are we talking about here. Sixers get a back up pf for two backups in Noel and Covington. Sixers still lose that trade. It's a ridiculous trade. The only difference is Noel and Covington could start in the NBA where as Lyles has zero chance to start in the NBA.

10 Sep 2016 18:23:11
i believe Trey Lyles fits better at the small forward position.

02 Sep 2016 22:37:29

Sixers get Mills rights to Nikola Milutinov and 2017 1st rd pick 2019 1st rd pick

SAS gets N. Noel 2 2nd rd picks from Via Utah

Sixers add shooting and more assets.

SAS adds a young athletic defensive anchor to grow with the younger core. And it moves Paul to the bench to strengthen the second unit.

Parker/ murry/ forbes
Green/ manu/ Simmons
Kawhi/ Anderson
LA/ paul
Noel/ Demond/.

03 Sep 2016 01:36:23
Sac has no more first rounders. They owe it in one way or anything.

03 Sep 2016 03:37:53
Common Spurs fan.

03 Sep 2016 04:57:03
Ugh I keep seeing Sacramento when I see SAS. UGH.


01 Sep 2016 10:42:11

MIN get Derrick Favors and George Hill

Pg Dunn/ Hill/ Jones

Sf Wiggins/ Rush

UTA get John Wall and Nemanja Bjelica

Pg Wall/ Exum/ Neto
Sg Hood/ Johnson
Sf Hayward/ Ingles
Pf Lyles/ Bjelica

WSH get Ricky Rubio, Gorgui Dieng, Alec Burks, 1st round pick from UTA and 1st rd pick MIN both unprotected

Pg Rubio/ Burke
Sg Beal/ Burks/ Thornton
Sf Porter/ Oubre
Pf Morris/ Dieng
Ce Gortat/ Mahinmi/ Smith.

01 Sep 2016 11:40:14
good trade. The Wizards get rid of their backcourt chemistry problems and should kind of look to rebuild again. I don't know if it's great for Utah depending on how good John Wall and Derrick Favors are this season but potentially it could be a great trade. Really good for Minnesota.

01 Sep 2016 15:23:32
I think the wizards say yes just because of how great this draft is.

01 Sep 2016 09:24:58
Clippers- Utah

Utah: B Griffin+ W Johnson
Clippers: G Hayward+ Favors

C: Gobert
PF: Griffin
SG: Hood
PG: Hill

C: D Jordan
PF: Favors
SF: Hayward
SG: Reddick
PG: CP3.

01 Sep 2016 09:58:39
make it reddick instead of Johnson and add a pick to LAC.

01 Sep 2016 13:18:01
I agree that Utah would need someone better OR a pick instead of Johnson.
