UTA get Paul George
IND get Rodney Hood, Derrick Favors, Dante Exum, 2017 and 2019 1st round pick and 2nd round pick
maybe not enough but if UTA can pull something like this they would be a challenge for GS and SAS
Pg Hill/ Mack/ Neto
Sg Hayward/ Burks
Sf George/ Johnson
Pf Lyles/ Ingles
Ce Gobert/ Diaw/ Whitey
14 Jan 2017 05:19:25
Too much for Utah to give up for George.
13 Jan 2017 17:33:54
Sac: Hayward+ Dragic+Turner
Utah: McCollum+ Plumlee
Miami: R Gay+Collison+Labisierre 1rnd pick Sac+ 1rnd pick Utah
Portland: WC Stein+ Winslow+afflalo
Sacramento receive two players that should bring Sacramento and Cousins into the playoffs
Utah receive an All star level replacement for Hayward, that's locked in for 5years.
Miami receive capspace a young talent and two draft picks so they can rebuilt
Portland get younger and receive more capspace so they can built a team arround Lillard
13 Jan 2017 18:59:45
Portland laughs at this. not reading the rest
13 Jan 2017 19:55:06
Maybe replace stein with Whiteside and Portland considers it. As it sits, plumlee>>stein, turner>afflalo, McCollum >>>>>>>>>>>>Winslow
14 Jan 2017 04:58:08
Seeing as Portland was the last one. You literally read everything. Great comment Simmons.
13 Jan 2017 03:39:03
Thunder get Gordon Hayward
Jazz get Andre Roberson, Domatas Sabonis, Alex Abrines, and 2017 1st rd pick
Pf. J. Leveargne/ J. Grant/ N. Collison
Sf. G. Hayward/ K. Singler/ J. Huestis
C. S. Adams/ E. Kanter/ D. Johnson
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Morrow/ X. Henry
Pg. R. Westbrook/ C. Payne/ S. Christon
13 Jan 2017 11:14:26
Hayward can walk at the end of the season.
13 Jan 2017 11:54:53
He can, but what free agent would leave if he get's a max contract?
Giving up Sabonis could be wrong, but Hayward is the ideal teammate for Westbrook.
13 Jan 2017 12:37:58
The price really isn't all that high. I think having Hayward's Bird Rights would be more valuable than what is being given up so I think Thunder may be willing to do this trade but Jazz wouldn't want to give Hayward up for this little.
13 Jan 2017 15:31:27
jazz don't need another PF but what's worst is the Raptors passed on Sabonis and settle for a player they might end up trading Poeltl. Sabonis will be another Kevin Love type of player but not as good as a shooter.
12 Jan 2017 00:20:33
Jazz and suns:
Favors and Exum
Knight and Chriss
12 Jan 2017 06:57:15
Suns dnt do that trade! They're keeping Chriss
12 Jan 2017 19:23:48
Why would jazz do this? There is playing well and they get back sbunch of junk. Chris's is project at best at this point.
13 Jan 2017 16:54:41
Jazz do it so when Hill or Hood is hurt (which they often are) they have a quality guard also a pf behind Lyles to learn when most likely favors walks away in free agency and we can get something for him
13 Jan 2017 16:55:30
Suns get a great pf they can resign that's why they do it instead of gamble on a rookie
10 Jan 2017 13:02:42
Boston: P George+ Butler+ Favors
Indiana: J Brown+Jerebko+ 1rnd pick 17 Nets+ 1rnd pick Memphis 19+ 1rnd pick Clippers 19
Bulls: Crowder+smart+ 1rnd pick Boston 18+ 1rnd pick Nets 18
SF: P George
Sg: J Butler
Pg: I Thomas
10 Jan 2017 13:54:52
It appears that the Celtics would be without a first-round pick in both 2017 and 2018, which is against NBA rules.
Plus, it means that Kelly Olynyk would need to play 48 minutes off the bench, and that's 47 too many.
10 Jan 2017 14:37:46
So Boston receive two top ten players and a good big man and you're still not happy? :-)
Both Cleveland and GS have a weak bench, but this team could beat them.
And Boston will have enough capspace to sign some good bench players next year.
10 Jan 2017 15:23:42
Not enough for butler or george
10 Jan 2017 16:47:58
I just don't see Boston trading 60% of their starting lineup and Smart and Jerebko, not to mention all their future DP's.
I would like to see the C's go back after K Love if the price is right.
10 Jan 2017 07:29:46
UTA/ CHI/ MIL
UTA get Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo (waive)
Pg Hill/ Mack
Sg Butler/ Burks
Sf Hayward/ Johnson
Pf Lyles/ Ingles

Pg MCW/ Exum/ Grant

Sf Parker/ Snell
Pf Mirotic/ Teletovic/ Maker
Ce Lopez/ Henson/ Plumlee
10 Jan 2017 10:23:22
I like it. Jazz get a true superstar and I think they should move Favors anyway (Lyles as stretch 4 type is much better fit alongside Gobert plus they likely won't want to pay Favors with Hill and Hayward due big bucks this summer) .
Chicago gets a great return that keeps them competitive now but also sets them up for the future. Middleton and Favors are two good starters that are only 25, Monroe can provide much needed scoring off the bench and Exum is a solid prospect to pair with two first rounders. Favors looked like a potential all-star at one point and I think moving to center and getting out from under Gobert's shadow will do wonder for him.
The bucks likely don't want to give up Middleton but Hood is a similar player (although due an extension in 2018) and they also get an improved stretch 4 in Mirotic and Lopez who is a solid center who can defend and rebound. There should be some restrictions on that draft pick that they are giving up or it switched to 2nds to maybe sweeten the deal for them.
10 Jan 2017 14:32:12
Bucks say hell no
10 Jan 2017 18:00:45
Bucks would never do this. The Bulls wanted make us a package last year at the deadline for Butler that was between Middleton, our first last year (10th) and Monroe for Butler and their first (14th). If we say no then, why say yes to a worse deal now?
10 Jan 2017 00:29:35
Exam for Jahlil
Jahlil can play behind Rudy in the secondary
Phi clears the log jam and hope he can turn it around
10 Jan 2017 13:41:33
This trade makes a ton of sense to me. Okafor off the bench for the jazz until he develops.
Exum a possible project but could be a solid back up one day.
10 Jan 2017 00:10:55
Utah:A Johnson+ 1rnd pick Bost 18+ 1rnd pick Memphis 19+ 1rnd pick Clippers 19
10 Jan 2017 01:46:47
Gasupo -- you really think Favors is that much better than Johnson? I realize those picks don't figure to be great, but they must have SOME value.
10 Jan 2017 04:10:36
Don't see Utah giving up Favors for future assets in a vacuum. If they keep Heyward, dealing Favors makes no sense.
09 Jan 2017 20:38:25
Hawks get burks, favors 2nd or 1st
Jazz get Millsap
I don't know if the hawks could get a better return. I also believe there's a good chance millsap would resign with a team he played most of his career with.
09 Jan 2017 20:59:50
I thought of this trade too, but the Jazz could be in serious salary problems after this year. Millsap, Hill, and Hayward are free agents. And then Hood is a free agent next year
09 Jan 2017 22:57:04
Why do this? To win 1 playoff game then get smashedby hou or sa or god forbid the warriors?
09 Jan 2017 11:45:01
If Hayward wants out
GS: Bradley+ Crowder+Favors+ 1rnd pick Nets 18
trade; Thompson+ Pachulia
Utah: A Johnson+ J Brown+ Jerebko+ 1rnd pick Nets 17+ Memphis pick 19
trade: Favors+ Hayward
Boston: Hayward+ K Thompson+ Pachulia
trade: J Brown+ Crowder+ A Johnson+ Jerebko+1rnd pick Nets 17 and 18+ 1rnd pick Memphis 19
SG: K Thompson
PG: I Thomas
09 Jan 2017 13:21:08
That appears too much for Golden State to decline the issue is that Bradley and Favors contracts both expire in 2018 so not sure how they'd be able to afford both past next season. It would be difficult to trade them next season since they'd be expiring contracts so maybe since Crowder is so cheap they move one for a guy on his rookie deal still that could contribute off the bench and draft picks. Bradley likely has more value plus Warriors could use a bigman so I think he may be odd man out (I also think he'd be more costly to resign than Favors) .
Utah isn't getting a great return but not sure if they could do much better if Hayward was leaving.
Boston gives up a lot but also gets a lot back getting pieces that will help them to compete over next few years.
08 Jan 2017 00:36:29
Cavs get a backup pg and center
Jazz get: McRae, '19 Twolves 2nd
Cavs get: Shelvin Mack or Raul Neto
Cavs get: Ajinca, Pondexter
Pelicans get: Shumpert, Anderson
08 Jan 2017 07:05:36
I can see the Utah trade happening but I'm not sure about the Pelicans just because I don't know if Ajinca fits the Cavs style. Pondexter is okay but honestly the Cavs have enough shooters now. Giving up Shumpert for this value just doesn't seem enough even though it isn't bad
06 Jan 2017 20:55:44
Jazz get Jimmy Butler and Nikola Mirotic
Bulls get Derrick Favors, Rodney Hood, Dante Exum, Warriors 2017 1st, OKC 2018 1st
05 Jan 2017 21:55:36
BOS: G Hayward
UTAH: A Johnson, J Jarebko, '17 1st (swap w/ BKN), and '18 1st (via BKN) .
BOS doesn't really need more young "potential" talent. It's time they cash in on their assets and get a guy who can get them over the hump.
PG: Thomas/ Rozier
SG: Bradley/ Smart
SF: Crowder/ Brown
PF: Hayward/ Olynyk
C: Horford/ Zeller
UTAH can't attract free agents and have to build through the draft. They played well without Hayward for the first part of the season. They can cash in and get 2 potential top 5 picks in consecutive years. They shed Hayward's $16M salary for next year to try to get an impact free agent along with a high lottery pick to add to their solid team.
PG: Hill/ Exum
SG: Burke/ Hood
SF: Johnson/ Ingles
PF: Favors/ Luke's
C: Gobert/ Withey.
05 Jan 2017 23:44:29
Boston will not do all that for a player who can walk away on July 1.
06 Jan 2017 02:38:54
"All that". explain.?
06 Jan 2017 04:28:40
he is not worth it, even if he does not walk. Too much for a player that will not get boston past Lebron. Nets picks need to be used for a great player: PG13, or Boogie comes time mind
05 Jan 2017 05:32:06
Knicks get Derrick Favors, Alec Burks, Raul Neto, Jazz 2017 1st, OKC 2018 1st
Jazz get Carmelo Anthony and Maurice Ndour
05 Jan 2017 05:55:23
Knicks rebuild around Porzingis for the future and plus the Porzingis-Favors front court is deadly.
Jazz get another star to become true contenders and can match up against the Warriors pretty decently with that small ball lineup.
05 Jan 2017 07:12:30
I like Derrick Favors and think he is a poor fit in Utah alongside Gobert and with Hill and Hayward being FA this summer its unclear if they'll have funds to retain him. He isn't having a great season so his stock is down but previous two season he put up a solid 16 and 8. At 25 and with a bigger role (at his more natural position of center) I could see him a nightly double-double threat. He would be a decent addition for NY as they could play him alongside Porzingis.
Melo would be a good fit in Utah as well. He'd likely slide in at the 4 and could stretch the floor more and wouldn't have to do quite as much defensively with younger guys on the perimeter and Gobert in the middle. He'd also provide Utah good insurance if Hayward left. I think Utah is giving up a little too much in the trade but I don't hate it.
The big issue I see is Melo has a no trade clause and I don't see him waiving it to go to Utah. Basketball it makes sense but I can't imagine Melo going out to Utah (his wife Lala wouldn't want to do that) for the change in lifestyle.
05 Jan 2017 08:18:09
I like it but I would switch hood with burks.
05 Jan 2017 11:51:03
I like this rade for the Knicks
Not, sure about Utah. C Anthony would be a good fit. But i'm not sure trading for an older player is a good thing for that team.
05 Jan 2017 17:00:28
As a knicks fan, I would love this. Even better if somehow the knicks can get rid of noah. Wont happen though, Melo absolutely would veto that trade.
04 Jan 2017 19:42:54
second round pick
04 Jan 2017 21:11:52
Only if Hayward agrees to a contract extension prior to the deal.
04 Jan 2017 22:07:24
No need for Jazz to do.
05 Jan 2017 01:56:52
I don't think Hayward is worth trading for. The C's are really looking for a big man. The trade proposed looks good but if Boston is going to spend big bucks next year it's going to be on a c/ pf. Hayward isn't going to bring them to the finals, a big man named Boogie will. They can get as a filler at a much cheaper price if Crowder is involved in a trade or just go with Jerebko.
05 Jan 2017 08:28:14
I agree with billj. I don't think Hayward is the best fit with the Celtics from a bball perspective. Either way Hayward isn't going to make the difference for C's especially this season so it makes more sense for Celtics to not trade for him and just go after him in the offseason if they really want since Hayward isn't likely going to save this season.
04 Jan 2017 02:47:18
jazz get Dragic
Heat get Mack Exum and Diaw plus 1rd2017.
04 Jan 2017 13:20:41
George Hill is playing very well I don't think Dragic is better than him at this point so I don't see Jazz giving up this much for a guy who arguably isn't better than who they already have.
02 Jan 2017 20:49:16
Jazz get Paul George, Glenn Robinson III, and Kevin Seraphin
Pacers get Rodney Hood, Stanley Johnson, Aron Baynes, 2017 Jazz 1st, and 2018 OKC 2nd (via Jazz)
Pistons get Alec Burks and Trey Lyles.
03 Jan 2017 05:55:05
Why's this unbelievable?
-Jazz get another star, solidifies their lineup and they become a true contender
-Pacers are struggling and Paul George has voiced his frustrations so they trade him and rebuild
-Pistons get 2 better fits for their team, Burks gives them a 6th man and scoring on the bench. Lyles is young and can stretch the floor.
03 Jan 2017 14:27:17
NBA pacersdont get enough so it's unbelievable.
30 Dec 2016 18:28:36
Jazz get John Wall and Marcus Thornton
Wall/ Hill/ Mack
Hayward/ Johnson/ Ingles
Favors/ Lyles/ Bolomboy
Gobert/ Diaw/ Withey
Wizards get Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Raul Neto, 2017 Jazz 1st, 2018 Thunder 1st, and 2021 own 2nd returned
Exum/ Burke/ Neto
Beal/ Burks/ McClellan
Porter/ Satoransky/ Oubre
Morris/ Smith/ Nicholson
Gortat/ Mahinmi/ Ochefu.
31 Dec 2016 01:21:59
I think Jazz can make it happen but they'd have to include Favors or Lyles too for starters maybe throw in their 2019 pick. With Hill playing at such a high level I'm not sure how willing they would be to make this deal this season (although Hill and Wall could potentially play together) since they wouldn't be able to get fair value for Hill who is an upcoming FA.
31 Dec 2016 03:14:22
ochefu is a small forward XD.
30 Dec 2016 14:59:17
Sixers and jazz
Sixers trade Noel and Sergio Rodriguez
Jazz trade Dante exam
Noel comes off the bench and helps that elite defense continue into the second unit of the jazz behind gobert. Sergio is a quality back up guard to go behind George hill. I actually really like this for the jazz.
Sixers get Dante exam. He's yet to produce in the NBA but has great upside. He's also Australian so him and Simmons might have an instant connection.
30 Dec 2016 15:52:07
Tre, Exum can't shoot. Really. Him and simmons would be a terrible fit.
30 Dec 2016 18:26:37
jvoung, noel is going to cost way too much and the sixers won't resign him. so why not get a solid pg prospect for a player that will be gone in a few months and a nobody?
30 Dec 2016 19:23:36
Because the Sixers are now at the point where they need to start going after best fit rather than best available. Most championship teams fit well together.
30 Dec 2016 20:00:10
Exums pretty young too. Philly could develop that shot a bit and maybe he'll figure it out. Chemistry is key and that Australian connection might really help. Philly doesn't seem to be in a rush so he should have plenty of learn time
Jazz I think are solid now with George hill. They need a back up pg which Rodriguez helps. Noel behind gobert would make scoring against the jazzextremely hardno matter who is on the floor so I like that upgrade too.
31 Dec 2016 01:39:39
Sergio is on a 1-year deal with 76ers; He's a FA in 2017.
31 Dec 2016 02:09:57
I don't see the Jazz being interested in Noel from a pure fit perspective not to mention the financials. They just resigned Gobert and need to still pay Hayward and Hill this upcoming offseason then find money for Favors (I think he is a prime trade candidate especially since Lyles is a better fit alongside Gobert) . I can't imagine the Jazz giving up assets to get a guy they can't even start (Gobert and Noel would be awful offensively together) and then resigning him over their existing starters that are playing at high levels.
31 Dec 2016 17:23:38
But exam can't start either. He's not ready. That team can win now and they need depth right now. Exam just isn't NBA ready so you trade him for two NBA ready back ups to fill out that team based roster.
30 Dec 2016 09:40:36
Phoe: Favors+ Exum
Utah: b Knight+ Bender.
30 Dec 2016 11:28:28
I'd love it for Phx but not sure Utah would be as thrilled.
30 Dec 2016 11:50:41
I think it's a win win situation
Favors is a great fit in Phoenix
I still believe Bender is going to be great and B Knight is a good sixth man for Utah. Utah doesn't need Favors, I believe the combo Lyles-Gobert is more versatile than Favors-Gobert.
12 Jan 2017 00:18:44
I really like this trade for UTAH! Favors will be a free agent next year and the jazz will not have enough money to sign him because most likely the resign Hill instead. Gives the jazz a good point guard option as Hill is frequently hurt (Has already missed a third of the season) . Gives Bender a chance to develop behind Lyles. Honestly would rather Have Chriss over Bender
