DAL gets Coby White

CHI gets Moses Brown and a 2022 2nd

Mavs get much needed backcourt/ bench scoring

Bulls get much needed big off the bench and opens minutes for Caruso and Donosumu.

23 Sep 2021 07:33:01
Not trading White for someone that will be the 3rd center. They signed Bradley.

23 Sep 2021 09:39:01
Salaries match?

23 Sep 2021 14:55:14
The Bulls also signed Caruso and drafted Ayo Donosumu. they'll need more than Bradley upfront against teams like PHI, MIL and LAL. P.

22 Sep 2021 01:12:21

Magic get Derrick Jones Jr Jarrett Culver

Bulls get Kyle Anderson

Grizzlies get Terrance Ross Michael Carter Williams 2022 first round pick(heavily protected).via Blazers from Bulls 2023 second round pick.via Nuggets from Bulls
2027 second round pick.via Bulls

This is one of my best trade so far

22 Sep 2021 04:56:32
Why for Bulls?

18 Sep 2021 12:56:00

76er's = J. Wall; T. Satoransky
2-'22 2nd Rd (Pels-via Sac/Jazz); '24 1st rd (Pels - LAL); '25 1st rd (Pels - Bucks)

Rockets = K. Lewis; J. Hayes; J. Hart; D. Louza; '28 1st rd (Clippers)

Clippers = E. Gordon; J. Valancious (move Bledsoe to Thunder who need to add salary for '21-22)

Pels = B.Simmons; G. Niang; M.Muscala; D. Theis; L. Kennard

Thunder = Bledsoe; 2- 2nd rd (Pels - '24 Bulls/'26 TB)

18 Sep 2021 13:51:33
Big overpay.

18 Sep 2021 20:23:57
Just to be clear. That 2022 second owed to the Pelicans from Sacramento is 31-54 protected. So it's not really a pick since we know the Kings are not going to be a top 5 team next year. That pick has no real value.

17 Sep 2021 15:04:45
bulls: Eric Gordon, Daniel House (tpe)

houston: derrick jones jr , troy brown jr, portland first round pick.

bulls get two tested veterans. the pick is lottery protected until 2028. so they won't give too much.

houston get a pick and some salary relief.

17 Sep 2021 18:28:59
yeah, a little too much salary relief. the bulls are over the cap and can't take on that much. drop house out and it works salary wise. but wasn't DJJ just traded to the Bulls from Portland. in that case the trade has to wait until 60 days after acquiring the player before they can package him with another.

17 Sep 2021 18:54:29
I like it.

11 Sep 2021 00:23:16
Bulls get Jerami Grant

Pistons get Coby White, Patrick Williams and POR (lottery protected) 2022 1st round pick.



11 Sep 2021 01:22:26
Grant seems like a great fit in Chicago. I like this a lot.

11 Sep 2021 04:53:30
Why would Pistons do this? They should be thinking about trading Hayes he is a bust.

11 Sep 2021 05:52:11
This is great for both teams. Tho Pat Williams has a ceiling that could be better than Grant.

11 Sep 2021 08:37:25
I think it's an overpay for chicago, but i can see them doing this to win now.

11 Sep 2021 23:10:06
I like the idea, but I don't think they'll be able to afford Grant's next contract in 2 years. He has left good situations before to get what he wants. I also probably value Patrick Williams more than most.

05 Sep 2021 18:17:50
Detroit / Chicago

Det trades Grant, 4 2nd rd picks

Bulls trade D jones jr., Pat Williams.

Bulls could use some 3&D players who can guard multiple positions. Grants pretty good

Pistons are in a rebuild and we're linked to Williams before the draft. I think he fits with what they're build and they could use the athleticism

05 Sep 2021 19:45:45
It’s horrible trade.

05 Sep 2021 22:39:10
Detroit is not trading Grant.

05 Sep 2021 22:53:08
Not bad. If the bulls take the picks we just got from Brooklyn then I’m all for it as a Pistons fan.

05 Sep 2021 22:53:43
Very nice trade. Grant fits better with the Bulls and their playoff aspirations, while Williams is a nice prospect to build around for the rebuilding Pistons.

05 Sep 2021 23:04:28
Bulls can't package DJJ with any other player until 60 days after the Markkanen S&T completes.
Grant is by far the best player in the trade. why would Detroit give up picks?

06 Sep 2021 02:59:36
The picks are the ones just acquired from the sekou, deandre Jordan trade with nets. I was throwing them in as sweeteners. I think Williams has some star potential and Chicago just drafted him pretty high and as a Pistons fan I’d love to keep them but I value the young athletic forward more than some future second which we can acquire later if needed.

06 Sep 2021 16:14:19
Wouldn't do it as the Bulls. Williams is younger, cheaper, and has a good deal of potential.

04 Sep 2021 01:31:04
GS gets: Coby White

Bulls get Jonathan Kuminga.

02 Sep 2021 20:42:11

Magic get Larry Nance Jr

Blazers get Ben Simmons Paul Reed

76ers get CJ McCollum Greg Brown 2023 first round pick(Top 4 protected).via Bulls from Magic

Blazers starter
Jusuf Nurkic/

Magic starter
Carter Jr/

76ers starter

Magic use 17 Million Dollars TPE to bring Larry Nance Jr

02 Sep 2021 21:53:25
Blazers get hosed in this deal. They just traded for Larry Nance Jr. I'd think they want to see what they have in him before thinking about trading him.

02 Sep 2021 23:10:45
JJ: heck no. If I have to move Nance to get Simmons, I’d do it right now, no hesitation whatsoever. Sign me up.

27 Aug 2021 16:38:51
Orlando Magic Situation

They should go all in for Michael Porter Jr overpaid force Nuggets to let him go if they not willing to match the offers do sign and trade

Magic sign Michael Porter Jr four years $128 Million Dollars contract

Denver Nuggets have to pay Aaron Gordon Jamal Murray Will Barton Nikola Jokic they going to be over the salary cap

They don't have money re-sign Michael Porter Jr max contract

Sign and Trade

Michael Porter Jr for Jonathan Issac Terrance Ross 2023 first round pick(Top 4 protected).via Bulls from Magic 2024 first round pick(unprotected).via Magic 2024 second round pick.via Magic 2026 second round pick.via Bucks from Magic

I'm willing to give up Jonathan Issac if Nuggets demand to give him up

It's would be nice have Isaac/Porter In lineup but not going to happen

It's save Denver Nuggets salary cap

I really want Superstar on my team if I have to give up Defensive Anchor Jonathan Issac + multiple picks I'm willing to do it it's hard to let him go

Magic re-sign Gary Harris two years $6.5 Million Dollars contract

Magic re-sign Wendell Carter Jr four years $60 Million Dollars contract

Let Michael Carter Williams walk

Second Trade

Magic trade Mo Bamba to Grizzlies

Grizzlies trade Steven Adams 2024 first round pick(Top 3 protected).via Warriors from Grizzlies to Magic

Grizzlies sign Mo Bamba four years $50 Million Dollars contract

27 Aug 2021 17:22:05
I'd say that they should pay Porter Jr and let Gordon leave.

27 Aug 2021 18:01:04
If Porter plays the way he did at the end of last season, Denver happily pays him max.

27 Aug 2021 21:55:45
so nuggets won't have Max money for Porter but they will pay Max money to isaac and rose combined salary.

27 Aug 2021 21:56:51
Also, I thought Isaac was untouchable!

26 Aug 2021 00:54:32
Grizzlies - White & Arcidiacono

- Grizzlies gets a 2nd option

Bulls - Clarke Rondo & 1st via Utah

- Bulls get backup PG and defensive forward/depth



26 Aug 2021 00:22:04
Magic/Nuggets 2022 Free Agency Off-Season

Magic get Michael Porter Jr (Sign and Trade) 4 yrs $105 Million contract

Nuggets get Franz Wagner Terrance Ross Wendell Carter Jr (Sign and Trade) 4 yrs $70 Million Dollars contract 2023 first round pick(unprotected).via Magic 2023 first round pick(Top 4 protected).via Bulls from Magic

Magic drafted Chet Holmgren @ 2 pick

Wendell Carter Jr can play power forward position

Peoples what y'all think this deal???

26 Aug 2021 02:44:20
Trying to picture MPJ WANTING to sign with Orlando.

26 Aug 2021 03:40:04
If he wants to be the man of the team he might.

26 Aug 2021 13:38:23
No state income tax, warm weather, opportunity to be the man. It’s not that big of a stretch.

26 Aug 2021 14:31:30
Porter Jr. will be a RFA. The Nuggets will match any offer. Sorry.

26 Aug 2021 15:33:03
Porter absolutely seems like the kind of guy that won’t be happy being the third option for long. Going to a bad team to be the guy seems like a believable move.

But yeah, Denver wouldn’t let him go. If he really badly wanted out, the could extend him, then move him that trade deadline or the next offseason. But they’d need to maximize their return.

23 Aug 2021 02:05:07
Magic/Spurs/Hawks Mid -Season

Hawks get Gary Harris 2022 second round pick.via Pacers from Magic

Magic get Thaddeus Young Dejounte Murray

Spurs get Markelle Fultz Danilo Gallinari 2023 first round pick(Top 4 protected).via Bulls from Magic


Magic gotten more defensive players + let Suggs be point guard for future and Murray can learn how to shoot the ball and being 3 and D guard

Magic are looking to make push for playoffs or play in tournament

Markelle Fultz is odd man out

23 Aug 2021 06:43:16
1. That’s not enough for Murray alone much less getting Thad

2. Magic needs to actually play their young players and let them develop. Bamba has has terrific numbers last year when he played 25+ mins.

23 Aug 2021 07:41:59
Fultz for Beasley.

22 Aug 2021 03:57:35
Magic/Wolves/Thunder/Cavaliers/Hawks Trade Deadline!!

Magic get Cedi Osman Cam Reddish

Hawks get Kevin Love 2022 first round pick(Top 10 protected).via Cavaliers

Thunder get Patrick Beverley Taurean Prince 2023 first round pick(Top 4 protected).via Bulls from Magic

Cavaliers get Terrance Ross Gary Harris Isaiah Roby

Wolves get Danilo Gallinari

Peoples what y'all think this deal???

22 Aug 2021 15:29:28
I don't get this from Atlanta's POV. Gallinari ($20 mil with $5 mil non-guaranteed next year) + Reddish ($4.7 mil pending RFA next year) for Love ($31.3 mil with $29 mil next years) + a protected first.

Seems like Gallinari + Reddish is better for a playoff team trying to win now than Love + pick.

22 Aug 2021 15:43:47
You'll have to attach more than one 1st to move off Kevin.

22 Aug 2021 17:29:25
Fredman your not seeing this from MD's pov. Let me see if I can weaken Hawks roster just so Magic can win 30 games next season.

22 Aug 2021 18:58:45
I know MIN could use an upgrade at PF, but they need someone who pairs with Towns. Rosas said he wants someone who can defend the rim, defend the pick and roll, and rebound. Gallo is good at things MIN is already good at, and is bad at things they are bad at,

Incidentally, I like Beverley on the Wolves. He’s been a 40% spot up three point shooter, and he is a . I’ll use the word “tenacious” … defender. I’d like a little of that defensive intensity to rub off on the young Wolves.

22 Aug 2021 22:07:24
If the magic want cedi they need to pay. At least 2 more 1sts are needed. AT LEAST.

22 Aug 2021 22:56:47
What world is Cedi worth 2 extra 1sts?

23 Aug 2021 01:53:47
@shizzee. You're right. My bad. I should have known that there was an alternate motivation.

22 Aug 2021 02:45:39
Detroit gets pat williams, Devancenzo, t. Brown

Bulls get jerami Grant

Pistons are in a rebuild and Chicago is making a push. I think this helps both teams.

22 Aug 2021 14:05:52
i think you forgot the part where the Bulls acquire DiVincenzo from the Bucks so they can include him in the trade.

22 Aug 2021 15:32:02
@windrapsfan. That is why I laugh when I see 2 people voted "believable".

21 Aug 2021 12:48:46
Pels - Bulls (reposted)

Pels = Markkanen (3yrs - $45-48 mil)

Bulls = 2 - "22 2nd rd pics, Gabriel

(Pels use the TPE they do still have from the Adams combined trade with Grizzlies & Hornets = they traded Iwundu to the Hornets to preserve the $17mil TPE)

21 Aug 2021 06:09:50

Magic get Cam Reddish $15.8 Million Dollars TPE.via Gary Harris

Hawks get 2023 first round pick(Top 4 protected).via Bulls from Magic $4.6 Million Dollars TPE.via Cam Reddish

Thunder get Gary Harris 2022 second round pick.via Pacers from Magic 2026 second round pick.via Bucks from Magic

Hawks get future bulls first round pick + Cam Reddish TPE $$$

Magic get good young prospect + Gary Harris TPE $$$

Thunder get solid expiring contract player + two future second round picks

Peoples what y'all think this deal??? Be honest

Magic have $17.1 Million Dollars TPE and $15.8 Million Dollars TPE so far

Hawks can focus on re-sign De'Andre Hunter & Kevin Huerter their money $$$

21 Aug 2021 14:24:18
Wouldn't Reddish be absorbed inton the Harris TPE?

21 Aug 2021 14:46:37
This might be the best trade you've ever proposed. OKC needs to take on salary to hit the floor, so Harris will help with that. Makes sense for the Hawks to dump Reddish now for a 1st. makes sense for the Magic as well.
Only thing is OKC might want to hold out for a 1st rounder as long as there's a chance that Cleveland may be willing to part with that to dump Love.

20 Aug 2021 12:24:31
Pels - Bulls

Pels = Markkanen (3 yrs - $45-48)

Bulls = 2 - '22 2nd rd pics; Gabriel (roster spot or waive)

** Just can't see giving a 1st Rd pic up in this situation

20 Aug 2021 13:04:26
Whatever cap space the Pels had just went to the Hart resigning.

20 Aug 2021 13:21:16
They created a $17mil TPE and still have that available!

20 Aug 2021 15:42:50
@tomtowing ummm. According to NBA. com's transaction website, there is no $17 mil TPE from the Memphis-New Orleans trade (Aug 7th) because teams expanded the trade to include the S&T of Graham with Charlotte into the trade. So essentially, NO used the TPE space to S&T for Graham. Additionally, this trade has been finalized so may not be altered.

This also explains whey Spotrac. com does not show a $17 mil TPE for New Orleans as well.

Also, be aware that New Orleans is also hard cap from the Temple S&T so there is only so much room to add Hart and any other additional salary.

20 Aug 2021 16:36:32
Marc Stein
Aug 8
The Pelicans have expressed interest in Lauri Markkanen and hold a sizable trade exception ($17 million) to take the restricted free agent in on a contract he seeks, sources say.

20 Aug 2021 16:42:51
Oleh Kosel
Good list here. Let's also add Pelicans still have $7.8 of 2021-22 MLE (say uneven trade regarding amount of players occurs, Pels could be serious players in waiver market) and they're sitting $19.7 million below the tax line -- pretty darn inviting to utilize that $17 mil TPE.

20 Aug 2021 17:55:20
Tom brought his A game.

20 Aug 2021 19:11:39
@tomtomwing. Seems to be some disagreement between the sports reporters that you quote and websites that I referenced.

18 Aug 2021 22:05:24
Blazers - Simmons Maxey Thybulle and 2 1sts
76ers - Lillard

Blazers - Brooks Anderson Jones and 1st via Utah
Grizzlies - McCollum

Blazers - Markannen
Bulls - Covington

19 Aug 2021 05:11:49
Had blazers getting Clarke as well.

19 Aug 2021 12:29:28
You'd give all that for McCollum?

19 Aug 2021 13:12:36
Roster spots?

19 Aug 2021 16:22:49
I have thought about and kind of like the Covington for Markkanen swap.

I still have no interest in that Phili offer for Lillard though. It’s just not good in every way. It doesn’t bottom them out, and it doesn’t set them up for the future.

19 Aug 2021 16:58:45
Agree with you Bmiller66 on the Philly part of your comment. Philly's 1st round picks will fall in the late 20's. horrible value in a trade for Lillard.

19 Aug 2021 17:35:18
Bmiller it’s very unlikely any team you trade Lillard to gives you high picks. Most likely if he’s gone he’s going to a contender. And most likely you’re going to get an elite young player. If you want to bottom out you can still trade players such as Powell/ Nurkic for exp picks.

19 Aug 2021 20:18:19
Expiring players* and picks.

19 Aug 2021 20:50:47
NBA16, that's where a third, and maybe fourth, team comes in.

20 Aug 2021 00:25:30
@Bubbleboy6. What "lottery team" is giving up their pick for any assets that Philly has in order to redirect it to Portland for Lillard?

20 Aug 2021 01:30:34
A rebuilding team isn’t going to trade their future for Lillard.

20 Aug 2021 17:29:18
Must disagree with both Fredman and NBA16.

NBA history is littered with such trades/ draft rights shifts. I'll let you research those clear back to Bill Russell in 1956.

Lottery or rebuilding teams can put elements of protection on said picks also.

The point is the first trade suggestion in this post is horrible for the Trail Blazers. Two 1st round picks that will likely fall in the #25 to #28 range are of low value. especially when considering Philly wants 4 1sts for Simmons.

Something else to ponder. for the same reasons (some we know, some we don't) PHilly has been desperate to get rid of Simmons for many months, other teams are hesitant to take him.

Since these are all opinions based on many human variables, it's ok to disagree and admit none of us know the actual answer.

20 Aug 2021 17:51:00
We do know the answer. If Dame gets traded it’s to a contender. He’s not going to leave Portland to go to a rebuilding team. That being said Portland will be getting the best young players from that team and picks.

13 Aug 2021 17:43:36
Spurs: Simmons
76ers: Murray, Aminu, Samanić 1rnd pick 22 Spurs, 1rnd 2025 Bulls, 3x 2rnd

14 Aug 2021 04:22:51
Might be a fair offer. Morey wouldn't think so.

10 Aug 2021 00:10:40
Bulls trade Mavs

Mavs get markannen

Bulls get cauley-stien

10 Aug 2021 12:41:47
Mine would be Markkanen for Kleber and Cauley Stein. hoping for Bulls not to ask a 1st rd pick.

19 Aug 2021 12:14:54
Adding Kleber and WCS would make the Bulls a really deep team.
