Toronto trades Hood, Flynn, and their 2022 first (top 5 protected)

Portland trades Nurkic, Simons, and their 2024 first (top 5 protected)

Houston trades Wood

Toronto gets Nurkic

Blazers get Wood

Houston gets Hood, Flynn, Simons, and 2 firsts.


1.) 25 Jun 2021 17:33:38
I would take that for Toronto. glad you made it next year's pick and not the #4, because couldn't say yes to that.

2.) 25 Jun 2021 20:56:35
Toronto would not prefer Wood over Nurkic?

3.) 26 Jun 2021 02:47:45
Toronto would then have to send an additional young player and a second first. Maybe they’d do that, but it’s not one or the other.



17 Jun 2021 18:15:03
Blazers trade McCollum and 2022 first
76ers trade Simmons

Blazers trade Nurkic, Simons, Jones, and 2024 first
Pistons trade Grant

Blazers resign Powell

Starting lineup of Lillard, Powell, Grant, Covington, Simmons.


1.) 17 Jun 2021 21:22:27
I like the first trade, makes sense for both teams.

Idk if Pistons would want Nurkic since they took Stewart first round last year and he showed good promise on both ends of floor.

Would you look at trading a package around Nurkic and fillers for Smart or do a Porter Jr s&t?

2.) 17 Jun 2021 22:16:00
Not enough for Simmons, and the last thing the Pistons need is a center.

3.) 17 Jun 2021 22:18:07
Can't trade 22 1st if 21 is already traded. Picks going the wrong way McCollum is much all around player.

4.) 17 Jun 2021 23:10:40
CJ is only good on the offensive side, I wouldn’t call him all around.

5.) 18 Jun 2021 00:49:19
After the draft, they can make the trade shizzee. And no, the pick isn’t going the wrong way. Age alone makes Simmons a much more valuable player. Also defense.

Honestly, Nurkic was contract filler. Simons and the pick are the real value. Probably a 3 team to flip Nurkic (Toronto? ) .



15 Jan 2021 16:05:58
Blazers trade Anfernee Simons
Magic trade Mo Bamba

Straight swap of guys that could use a change. Bamba competes with Giles for backup big minutes while Nurkic is out. Simons gets minutes while Fultz is out.


1.) 15 Jan 2021 17:55:33
I like it.

2.) 15 Jan 2021 23:35:06
One of the best trades here even though it's simple.

3.) 15 Jan 2021 23:50:17
Hell no!

4.) 16 Jan 2021 05:51:52
I’d said same about culve bamba.



09 Nov 2020 17:16:12
Phili gets Beal
Portland get Simmons
Washington gets Ariza, Hood, Collins, Little, Simons, and Portland’s 2020, 2022, and 2024 firsts

Phili gets a star that fits better.

Washington gets 3 prospects 22 and under and 3 firsts and rebuild.

Portland gets a third star that fits the roster.


1.) 09 Nov 2020 17:34:04
Could swap Hood and Collins out, and put Nurkic in. But that seems less likely to entice Washington to me.

2.) 09 Nov 2020 20:07:36
Naw Portland don’t have the assets to get Simmons unless give up cj or dame. With Simmons defense he just as good as lillard in overall talent. So if lillard a top 3 point guard Simons about number 6 just as good.

3.) 09 Nov 2020 20:08:07
That's a lot for Simmons.

4.) 09 Nov 2020 20:23:07
Low end talent assets and pick 20 picks not a lot for Simmons especially PhilLy not rebuilding this trade delusional. How about Sexton, Nance jr, Exum, rights to pick 5 Plus. 2021 Cavs unprotected and 23 first top ten protected for Simmons


5.) 09 Nov 2020 20:35:32
Portland giving away players of fit, buy not fully proven other than Ariza, and too many draft picks for the Simmons, whose fit may not be clear as a complete non-shooter.

6.) 10 Nov 2020 00:19:01
Simmons as good as Lillard is a joke right?

7.) 10 Nov 2020 04:42:11
I’m going to take this trade to Facebook so it can get highly bashed. Those 3 players are projects with no Star potential and the picks are 26 and higher no way from Philly.

8.) 10 Nov 2020 06:23:51
Portland were lucky to make finals with there lineup. They want improve will lose Whiteside in fa and end up 11th in the west.

9.) 10 Nov 2020 09:07:58
It’s no joke. Simmons is prolly the best defensive guard in the league to make up for his poor shooting. I say the top 5 point guards in no order curry dame Irving Paul Westbrook. and then Simmons. People say dame number 2 or 3 but I put him 2. So if Simmons number 6 I say that’s just as good. Factor in age soon Paul decline that put Simmons in top 5 maybe next year. Simmons defense is superior to these top 5 excluding Paul and defense wins championships. So yeah I say just as good. All star, all nba and all nba defense.

10.) 10 Nov 2020 14:38:43
I feel like the Blazers would want to put in Nurkic instead of Hood and Collins.

11.) 11 Nov 2020 21:10:32
Defense doesn’t win championships in the NBA. Superstars do. Lillard is one, Simmons isn’t.

Swap them and Phili is 2019 NBA champs. Portland didn’t make it out of the first round in 2019.

You act like Facebook is a reliable source. Good one. Hopefully another joke.

Blazers offseason:

Blazers trade Ariza, Hood, Collins, and 2021 top 5 protected first

Boston trades Gordon Hayward (opt out and S&T for 3 years 75 million)

Draft Bey

Sign Gallinari to MLE, Aron Baynes to BAE, and Evan Turner and Melo to min.

Starting lineup: Lillard, McCollum, Hayward, Gallinari, Nurkic

Bench Trent, Simons, Turner, Baynes, Melo, Little, and Bey.


1.) 28 Oct 2020 04:43:55
I like Gordon Hayward going to Blazers. He fits perfectly with their stars there.

2.) 28 Oct 2020 05:43:20
Don’t like it for the Celtics. They would be better of keeping Hayward.

3.) 28 Oct 2020 06:00:31
I'm leaning towards Hayward not opting out. And if the Blazers did land Hayward, then Gallinari is probably not the right choice at power forward . a huge Blazer need is defense at both forward positions.

And when the Blazers had E. Turner before, he was a huge disappointment. So that would be an extremely unpopular, and likely unsuccessful, grab.

4.) 28 Oct 2020 08:59:01
Bubbleboy, if Gallo signs with them for MLE, they are lucky and stupid not to take the chance. Who are the candidates for cheap PF who plays defense? millsap?

5.) 28 Oct 2020 12:37:44
BHC: but if he opts out, he’s a free agent. It could come down to this return or he signs for one year and bolts next year or signs somewhere else this offseason.

Bubbleboy: Hayward and Gallinari are both ok defenders. They’re not leading the league in defense, but with Nurkic protecting the paint, that’s a middling defense. And that might be the best offense in the league.

Turner was hated for one reason, his contract. I think he’s become an underrated player around the league. He’s a really good defender, and a good floor general.

And yeah, I’d take Grant for the MLE too, but I don’t think he’ll be available.

6.) 28 Oct 2020 21:21:38
bmiller66 - Hayward would be a solid grab for Portland. After that the Blazers absolutely need defense. that means a player above average versus "middling".

As for offense, Portland already has one of the top offenses in the league and look where they are. No to Gallinari.

The problem with Turner when he was with the Blazers was much more than just his contract. He did not fit with Lillard as he is a ball in hand player. And his play was very uninspiring all around. He shot .27% from 3 during his 3 years in Portland, and didn't/ couldn't carve out a role.

7.) 29 Oct 2020 07:06:08
boston has 14 player on their roster. they should waive some players first.

8.) 30 Oct 2020 01:40:24
USA. we will have to disagree regarding Gallinari. Portland needs defense and grit at the forward position much more than more scoring with snooze-level defense. More scoring will not get them closer towards contention. There's nothing "stupid" about paying attention to team needs, team fit, winning pedigree, and what may or may not happen at the small forward position. The MLE might be better used on backup center. Or keep starting Collins at PF, then bring Gallinari in as a 6th man.

9.) 30 Oct 2020 17:04:04
ya as someone who likes turner he wasn't a good fit with the blazers and doesn't fit in many situations because he is a ball dominant player (who isn't as dominant as premier ball dominant players) who struggles to space the floor off-ball. trade makes sense also forget about resigning melo. he doesn't want a minimum to play in portland they're going to need a wing defender type to guard lebron and kawhi.

Sad to see Lamarcus Aldridge forced out like that. He was a huge part of the resurgence of the Blazers after a horrible decade.

Hopefully he gets his jersey in the rafters in Portland one day. And in the HOF.


1.) 16 Apr 2021 16:23:50
Kinda wondering if his medical condition was the real reason that the Spurs put LMA on the shelf earlier this season.



15 Dec 2020 17:23:34
Giannis with the max extension. How’s that guarantee he’ll be in Dallas going ddrainer?


1.) 15 Dec 2020 17:52:51
Also, does this totally change the outlook on trades this season for the Raptor fans? With him off the board, does cap space lose a lot of its value?

2.) 15 Dec 2020 18:56:58
I was thinking more about Miami than Toronto.

3.) 15 Dec 2020 19:08:07
Miami and Toronto will be fine. Contingency plans are always in their GMs minds.

4.) 15 Dec 2020 19:26:02
That James Harden market might be about to heat up.

5.) 15 Dec 2020 23:24:37
1st thing to look for from Toronto is OG's extension.
Maybe a Lowry extension too. keep the contract for a big dollar trade. if neither happen then they will deal at deadline to get roster into the shape they want for offseason.

6.) 16 Dec 2020 12:41:24
Aaaaaahhhh there's still Kawhi, Dipo, Gobert, and others. . .

7.) 16 Dec 2020 15:06:49
Are you really refusing to take on future salary for a shot at Oladipo or Gobert?

Kawhi isn’t an option, and you know it. He won’t go back to Toronto.

8.) 16 Dec 2020 16:22:36
You can't fully rule out Kawhi coming back. Honestly, we don't need to clear anymore cap space, but we're not taking on multiple years of contracts for Lowry.

9.) 17 Dec 2020 20:16:14
Dude Toronto done I say they miss playoffs just my opinion.

10.) 18 Dec 2020 15:07:43
lol II we can still beat your lakers just saying.



12 Dec 2020 19:39:05
Fredman, talk me down from the insane hype that Giles is causing throughout the Blazer fan base. He looked incredible.

Heat fans, same thing for DJJ. He was awesome last night.

It’s just one game, but the Blazers looked good.


1.) 12 Dec 2020 21:32:37
Giles a beast

2.) 13 Dec 2020 04:25:41
His knees will give out about 20 games into the season. His biggest problem in Sac was that he couldn't stay on the court. Whether that be injuries/ knee pain or foul trouble.

3.) 13 Dec 2020 17:24:45
Seems like that’s every big man the kings draft.



29 Nov 2020 00:06:53
Condolences on your center position Fredman. I can’t explain how happy I am that Portland took Kanter and Giles over Whiteside.


1.) 29 Nov 2020 03:54:43
Yea. But at least we are paying him $20 mil less than Portland did. Whole lot easier to cut if he doesn't pan out.

2.) 29 Nov 2020 05:35:27
Very true. I was happy with the Leonard and Harkless for Whiteside trade when it happened. I wish they hadn’t done it in retrospect.



20 Oct 2020 17:36:23
Who is on everyone’s list of “I don’t want that player on my team no matter what”?

One rule: totally ignore contracts. This is all about performance, style, personality, or attitude.

My top 3:
Hassan Whiteside
Julius Randle
Patrick Beverly

Whiteside and Randle are the same. They’re selfish stat stuffers that actively make their teams worse. They also think they’re superstar talents, so they “take over games”.

Beverly is simply dirty. The dirtiest player of the last 20 years. I just couldn’t root for him.


1.) 20 Oct 2020 18:13:32
Agree with Whiteside and Randle. I’d take Beverly in a second. Wiggins, Westbrook, and whiteside would be my 3. Westbrook is probably controversial, but no one keeps a team decent and gives them a hard cap in the playoffs as much as Russ.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 19:16:55
Yeah, Westbrook was the closest person to making my top 3, for exactly that reason. A team with Westbrook as the best player is a nearly guaranteed first round exit. No better, no less.

3.) 20 Oct 2020 19:29:44
1. Carmelo Anthony
2. Carmelo Anthony
3. Carmelo Anthony.

4.) 20 Oct 2020 20:39:02
Just because he was a Knick? Maybe I just never paid any attention to him, but Portland Melo seems like a really good dude, and a shockingly unselfish player.

5.) 20 Oct 2020 21:13:45
I'm not opposed to having anyone on my team. Personality takes a backseat to talent and fit.

6.) 20 Oct 2020 21:41:29
I'm with Darry here.

7.) 21 Oct 2020 02:44:49
I will pop in just for this one because my list has some not mentioned previously

K. Love

Honorable mention: Ben Simmons.

8.) 21 Oct 2020 05:39:21
Oh c'mon Freddy, we need your comments here.

9.) 21 Oct 2020 12:31:08
Fred! Good to have you back!

10.) 21 Oct 2020 16:38:14

Whiteside I don’t want in the league.

I can’t see Denver letting Porter go unless it’s for a star.

I just don’t see any way that philly moves Simmons to Denver and doesn’t get MPJ (or Murray) back. If you want an all star, you have to part with your best prospect.

Philly can want anything, it doesn’t mean they can get it. Murray would be untouchable if I’m running Denver.

Murray is a closer NBA16. You can give him the ball at the end of a game and feel confident in the outcome. Simmons will never be that guy. And that’s a huge piece of being a star guard.

I get the love for MPJ, but he’s not better than Murray yet. And if I had to bet, I’d say Murray has the better career peak. That’s why I’d trade Porter and not Murray.

I also think a group of Simmons, Porter, Gordon, and Jokic is possibly a terrible fit together. Simmons, Murray, Gordon, Jokic seems much better.

Rose doesn’t really count to me because he was simply never healthy again. His body just couldn’t take it. It wasn’t the ACL, it was just him.

When is the last time a young guy came back from an ACL and wasn’t the same? That surgery has gotten so good that it’s incredibly rare.
