Rockets: J Wallace+2rnd pick 25

17 Jul 2024 21:31:23
Sengun has way more value than that, about what Sabonis had when he was traded to Sacramento.

17 Jul 2024 23:07:40
Horrific for Houston. Sengun is Jokic Lite, Wallace is an unproven prospect whose ceiling is probably Draymond Green.

19 Jul 2024 07:29:44
Sengun will ask 200 million next year.
So they have to choose: Pay him or trade him.
The team that trades for him has to pay him the big contract. I don't think a lot of teams are willing to do that.

Wallace is the lesser player, but he's young and on a rookie contract for a few more years, so he's a good trade asset, the rockets can use tot trade for a star.

19 Jul 2024 14:54:27
Why would Houston trade their best player for Jarace Walker? They will 100% give Sengun the max, and 29 other teams would do so as well.

03 Jul 2024 08:51:32
Pacers: J Allen
Cle:M Turner+ 2rnd pick Miami 25

Pacers get the rebounder they need and Cleveland get a center who's more complementary with Mobley



03 Jul 2024 18:35:42
New H/ C says Allen will not be traded.

22 Jun 2024 14:29:44
Pacers:M Bridges
Nets: Mathurin/J Wallace/Sheppard

Indy sign E Gordon

C:Turner/I Jackson
SG:Nembhard/E Gordon

22 Jun 2024 18:48:03
That team looks good but that's a lot to give up. Idk.

22 Jun 2024 22:40:37
I don't hate the trade at all but wouldn't you want the Pacers to stick with this core first for a bit? Maybe Mathurin pans out to be close to Bridges's level.

23 Jun 2024 11:23:36
Mathurin can develop in an all star or in a roll player.
Bridges is a lock borderline all star.

I feel the pacers are reade to compete for a title. We lost to Boston 4-0, but most games were pretty close.
So i think we have a chance with a healty Haliburton and the addition of Bridges
This Indy startingfive can keep up with Boston and we have a better bench

Porzingis/ Turner
Tatum/ Siakam
J Brown/ Bridges
D White/ Nembhard
Holiday/ Haliburton
Horford/ Jackson
Brisset/ Toppin
Springer/ Nesmith
Hauser/ Gordon
Pritchard/ McConnell.

1) Pacers-Bulls
Bulls: J Smith+ #36

Heat: M Turner+Mathurin+ 1rnd pick Indy 25-27-29
Indy: Adebayo

PF:Siakam/Toppin/ J Wallace

09 Jun 2024 11:44:25
Definitely not enough for Caruso.

Not sure what I think of the 2nd trade. I like where they're headed and that trade changes them dramatically. I say be more patient.

05 May 2024 04:47:57

C- Capela/Okongwu

05 May 2024 12:01:43
The Pacers would be out of their minds to do something like this. They have a great thing going, all they need is internal growth from their young players. The last thing they need to do is bring in a guy like Ingram.

29 Apr 2024 07:32:09

Sacramento receives: Walker, McConnell

Indiana receives: Barnes, rights to SAC '24 1st (#13), POR '25 pick

29 Apr 2024 13:00:37
I think it's a fair trade, but i rather keep McConnell and develop Wallace.

Thoughts? Who says no?

01 Apr 2024 13:22:04
Why would the pacers do this?

09 Apr 2024 03:00:39
to be honest, they don't have a good reason to. But for 1 team out of 15, it'd be pretty easy to transfer another first to them or something.

17 Apr 2024 22:41:18
Hell no as a Magic fan.

06 Feb 2024 06:35:20
Clippers / Pacers / Jazz

Clippers get Markkanen, Hield


Pacers get PG


Jazz get Mathurin, Hyland, Toppin, 2 1st Pacers, 2 2nds Clippers


06 Feb 2024 07:37:48
I like PG comming back, but i don't give up 2 picks and a young talent for a player that can leave in free agency.

we better take Markannen and play siakam as Small forward

C:Turner/ Jackson
PF:Markannen/ Smith/ Walker
SF:Siakam/ Nesmith
SG:Nembhard/ Sheppard
PG:Hali/ McConnell.

24 Jan 2024 07:48:48
Pacers: Z Lavine
Bulls: Toppin+ Hield+Smith+ return 2 rnd pick Chi 24+ 2rnd pick Bucks 24+ 1rnd pick Indy 28 (lottery protected)


17 Jan 2024 22:58:16
Pacers: Siakam+ 2rnd pick Pelicans
Tor:Brown+Nwora+Lewis+ 3first round picks



13 Jan 2024 16:53:56
This is probably not the site to get a salary cap education but I'm gonna ask anyways. In this case I wish to focus on the pacers/raptors as my example. Some say why would a team trade a young prospect they are high on to acquire Siakam from the raps when they can get him for nothing in free agency. When I look at the pacer payroll the only path I see to acquire a max player in free agency is to (not sure the term to use but) give up their rights to at minimum Buddy Heild and Bruce Brown (meaning drop them for zero return)? Therefore the following options seem to make at least as much sense especially if you factor in developmental playing time opportunities for below mentioned prospects.

Option 1- Buddy OR Bruce (main salary fill)+ Obi Toppin OR Jalen Smith + Benny Matherin
For Pascal Siakam.

Option 2- Buddy OR Bruce + Jarace Walker + Aaron Nesmith for Pascal Siakam.

I won't haggle over picks (or lack there of) at this point as that would be just the final detail to push the real deal over the top. Also open roster spots have been left out as other players could be added or deleted to make such details work.
Acquiring Siakams bird rights could be a very valuable future asset to the pacers at some point and time down the road and you DONT get them thru free agency. There is always a flight risk but honestly if your gonna offer him a max deal anyways on a competitive team I just don't see it there. Losing Buddy and Bruce fer zilch to create necessary cap space also isn't free. Where's the logic in keeping players like Jarace who don't get minutes now let alone after signing said free agent. Obi (RFA) and Jalen (Player Option) would also see diminished minutes and could easily jump ship for nothing as well. It then becomes the question would one of either Matherin or Nesmith be worth the value of Pascals bird rights? Please enlighten me. Thanks eh.

13 Jan 2024 20:11:09
Dumping salary is easy. My Hawks dumped John Collins who has 75 million left at 25 million per year. The issue is finding a team with a yearly cap space amount willing to take on the players. As far siakim he is threatening not to sign with a team that trades for him because he wants to choose his own team. I doubt if he would resign with the pacers.

12 Jan 2024 19:26:17

WAS get Larry Nance & Kira Lewis

NOP get Tyus Jones

Tyus Jones is underrated, he can be that role guy, pass first point guard that can complete their starting five. One more guy I'm thinking is TJ McConnell but Pacers have an injured Haliburton so they'd be hesitant to giveup that guy. Pels can add a 2nd as sweetener

Pg Jones/Alvarado
Sg McCollum/Daniels
Sf Ingram/Murphy
Pf Zion/Jones/Marshall
Ce Valanciunas/Zeller

12 Jan 2024 23:53:43
Washington needs more motivation to do this.

09 Jan 2024 09:07:53
Pacers:M Bridges
Lakers: B Hield
Nets:Russell+ 1rnd pick Indy 24-26+ 1rnd pick Hou/clip 24+ 1rnd pick 29 Lakers

09 Jan 2024 10:20:40
Why would the Lakers give a 1st for Hield.

07 Jan 2024 16:55:34
Pacers: J Grant+ T Camara+D Murray
Port:Mathurin+McConnell+ 1rnd pick Hou/clip+swap option 25
Atl: J Walker+B Hield+ 1rnd pick Indy 24-26


08 Jan 2024 20:35:22
What does Indy's cap situation look like next year when Murray's & Halliburton extensions kick in?

12 Jan 2024 11:45:08
You must be a pacers fan because generally when a person list the roster of only 1 team within a 3 team trade and the other 2 teams are fleeced no way hawks give up Murray for a pick and buddy shield. Lol.

06 Jan 2024 11:48:16
GS:B Hield+ 2rnd pick Memphis+2rnd pick Indy

06 Jan 2024 21:17:04
Golden State isn't getting picks back for Wiggins, given how he has been playing and his contract.

06 Jan 2024 22:57:36
Memphis just paid two 1sts and Tyus Jones for Smart. Hield and a 2nd isn't close.

05 Jan 2024 09:47:14
Tor: M Turner

Pacers:Mobley+Boucher+D Wade

Cle:J Walker+G Dick+Nwora+ 1rnd pick Pacers 24+ 1rnd pick Hou/Clip 24+ 1rnd pick Tor 26

05 Jan 2024 14:27:29
As much as I would love to see this I can’t begin to understand why the Cavs would even consider it?!

30 Dec 2023 10:34:43
1) Pacers-Cleveland-Bulls
Bulls: J Walker
Cleveland: Toppin+ 1rnd pick Indy 24-26 + 1rnd pick Por 24 (top 14 protected)+ 2rnd pick Bulls 27+ swap option 1rnd pick Indy 25

2) Pacers-Tor
Tor: Mathurin+ Hield+Sheppard+ 1rnd pick Clip/Hou/OKC 24


30 Dec 2023 14:18:49
Cleveland won't trade Mobley, and if they did they'd get more.

30 Dec 2023 16:11:21
Yup that offer for Mobley can be easily beaten by the Thunder or Spurs.

28 Dec 2023 01:20:22
I'm the Pacers in a mock, this is the trade I want to go for:

Brown, Toppin, Walker, Nwora, MIA 2025 2nd, IND 2024 1st, IND 2026 protected 1st for

Siakam, Porter, and Temple

Then the roster looks something like:


Thoughts? Am I giving too much or too little for Siakam?

28 Dec 2023 03:42:16
One extremely raw, unproved rookie in Walker with damn few NBA minutes to a roster full of same length non shooters is no where near enough “prospect” for your best player if I’m Masai. The rest is nothing more than contract fill and picks. Pacers improve immediately, raptors maybe never with this mindset.

28 Dec 2023 14:06:46
ok then as the Pacers I'm doing my job correctly. Thoughts, Gasupo? :)

28 Dec 2023 22:48:39
As the Pacers, it would be a steal.

As the Raptors, zero chance they even think about this deal.

If, and that's a big IF, they choose to trade Siakim, they will get a lot more for him, and it will most likely be a S&T.

29 Dec 2023 12:04:48
I trow in Mathurin+ Hield+ 1rnd pick Clip or Hou+ pick swap 25 for Anunoby

C:Turner/ Jackson
PF:Siakam/ Smith
Sf:Anunoby/ Nesmith/ Porter
SG:Brown/ Sheppard
PG:Haliburton/ Nembhard/ Temple

I believe that this is a well balanced team on offence and defense, so they could be an outsider for the title.

29 Dec 2023 18:02:15
Definitely anti raptor here.

30 Dec 2023 10:36:20
Siakam is a free agent and Anunoby can opt out his contract.
So that's a good offer if Toronto wants to rebuilt.

30 Dec 2023 13:40:17
Would sooner let them walk them take on these contracts.

30 Dec 2023 13:56:12
Only a few teams will have the cap space to sign them outright. Raptors can offer them more than any other team in free agency AND will have leverage if s&t required. So “attention Kmart shoppers”, Masai and Bobby have proved many times over they will NOT trade unless receiving what THEY perceive as value. If there isn’t a “giants of Africa” alum, old mentor who can ride the pine, positional need prospect or previous raptor draft pick being dangled, they will likely follow the Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka, steady Freddie “tried, tested and not so true” plan and let them walk.

24 Dec 2023 22:12:05
Pacers:J Grant+ M Bridges
Port: B Hield+ 1rnd pick Indy 24
Nets: Mathurin+ J Walker+ McCollum+ 1rnd pick OKC (or Hou/Clip)


25 Dec 2023 01:24:16
Mccollum? Are we living in 2018?

25 Dec 2023 20:12:38

26 Dec 2023 03:03:13
So not enough for Mikal Bridges.

26 Dec 2023 10:37:53
Not enough?
two young talents that were drafted in the lottery and a 1rnd pick should be enough for Bridges.

26 Dec 2023 23:26:01
Huge no from Portland. Buddy and a late first isn’t enough to let go of Grant’s steadying presence for the young guys.

21 Dec 2023 20:34:30

Tor:Mathurin+Toppin+hield+McConnell+J Walker+ 1rnd pick Hou or clip 24+ 1rnd pick Indy 24-26+ swap option Indy25


22 Dec 2023 13:27:23
I really like INdy as a trading partner, and this seems like a really good haul overall.

23 Dec 2023 03:29:43
Just got to be able to resign those guys considering the investment.
