Fred, would you deal 4 for Siakam? Hypothetically of course.


1.) 20 May 2022 14:52:03
I’d definitely do 7 (and maybe some pieces) for him!

2.) 20 May 2022 15:59:00
Probably not because to match Siakam's salary I would have to add Barnes + Holmes to #4 which seems a little too much IMO. Now, if the Kings traded down to a late lottery pick, then I would probably be more inclined.



16 May 2022 14:47:45
Sixers trade Green, Niang, Korkmaz, and a first for Boucher (S&T, 3Y 28M)

Raptors trade Boucher (S&T, 3Y 28M) and a 2nd for Poeltl

Spurs trade Poeltl for Green, Niang, Korkmaz, PHI 1st, and TOR 2nd

Raptors sign Oladipo to the MLE, Joseph to the BAE



1.) 16 May 2022 15:52:04
How much cap space does the Spurs have? They can just sign Boucher and keep Proetl, right?

2.) 17 May 2022 03:24:08
And why would Boucher agree to take a home town discount so he could be traded away?



29 Mar 2022 14:12:28
Raptors Offseason

Draft: 31 - Patrick Baldwin Jr.

Trade Birch, Mykhailiuk, and the 2024 top 18 protected first for Josh Hart
[Hart has been playing great but the Blazers need to full rebuild. Raptors get a guard off the bench and the Blazers get three assets.]

Resign Boucher, 2 years 20 million
Resign Young, 3 years 15 million
Extend TO on Brooks

Sign TJ Warren, full MLE
Sign Jarrett Culver, full BAE
Sign Bismack Biyombo, vet min

Resign Champagnie and Banton as two-ways



1.) 29 Mar 2022 16:11:44
If Portland needs a full-rebuild, then why trade Hart for a pick 2 years from now?

2.) 29 Mar 2022 17:00:41
Blazers say no. Hart has been terrific for them. He is young and is part of the rebuild.

3.) 29 Mar 2022 17:13:12
I think this seems (mostly) realistic, with the exception of the Hart package. I would love to see Hart coming off the bench but if the Blazers are asset-hunting, I'm not sure that package gets it done. Maybe loosen the protections on the first or they'd probably have to throw in a prospect like Banton, Flynn, or Champagnie.

I think those deals for Boucher and Young are fair and I would love to see them both back. I had my "trade Boucher" moments early in the season, but now that he's settled back into and accepted his role I don't think they can afford to lose what he brings.

I like you're thinking in proposing Warren, Culver, and Biyombo. Even if it isn't those three, players in those moulds would go a long way to boost the depth for next season without breaking the bank or gutting their assets.

4.) 29 Mar 2022 19:33:25
I think Boucher and Thad will get more than you're suggesting. And even at that, as you've constructed it the Raptors would be over the tax threshold. I don't think they'll do that until they believe they have a genuine contending team in place.



10 Feb 2022 17:39:17
Trades so far:

Kings trade Bagley and 2 2nds for DiVincenzo, Lyles, Josh Jackson

Bucks trade DiVincenzo, Hood, Ojeyleye for Ibaka and 2 2nds

Clippers trade Ibaka for Hood and Ojeleye

Pistons trade Lyles and Jackson for Bagley


Dragic and a prot 1st for Young, Eubanks, and a 2nd


Harden and Millsap for Simmons, Curry, Drummond, unprot 2022 1st, prot 2027 1st


1.) 10 Feb 2022 19:22:27
Good trade for Kings.

2.) 10 Feb 2022 23:19:11
Reports say that those 2nds are coming from Detroit, not Sac, according to Detroit sports reporting.



09 Feb 2022 13:46:18
Turner and Brissett for Oubre, Smith, and a first

30 Jun 2022 20:48:52
Here come the Durant proposals. What's the best offer from your team?


1.) 30 Jun 2022 21:08:09
Best offer would be derozan-pwill-coby-Portland 1st rounder and another 1st rounder

One that I would hope for would be just switch derozan for vooch.

I personally don’t think either of these interest Brooklyn at all but I was just replying to ur question.

2.) 01 Jul 2022 01:19:27
Bledsoe, Hart, Little, Sharpe, all the firsts.

3.) 01 Jul 2022 02:06:09
Bane Brooks Adams LaRavia Chandler + 3 1sts.

4.) 01 Jul 2022 02:10:50
Sabonis, Holmes, and 3 firsts (last one protected) .

Can't trade Fox because teams cannot have 2 rookie max extensions from traded players on the roster (Fox & Ben Simmons) .

5.) 01 Jul 2022 04:55:52
Lebron James. Lol. Maybe i would give up Anthony Davis and 27,29 1sts.



01 Apr 2022 18:38:58
Team Canada:


Am I missing anyone?


1.) 01 Apr 2022 19:22:08
Where's my man Anthony Bennett? . Lol. Guards are quite loaded but they have a "big" problem.

2.) 01 Apr 2022 19:56:29
Murray, Barrett, Brissett, Brooks, Clarke, Duarte?

3.) 01 Apr 2022 22:33:27
Oh wow I missed a lot of people. I was just looking at the Spotrac Canada roster, think that doesn't cover everyone.

Olynyk/ Birch/ Thompson
Clarke/ Boucher/ Brissett
Barrett/ Wiggins/ Brooks
Murray/ Dort/ Duarte
SGA/ Joseph/ NAW.

4.) 02 Apr 2022 16:46:11
@psiphon - you're right. but by the time the next world championships roll around the 7'4" Zach Edey may be ready to contribute.



22 Feb 2022 14:32:57
Rank these guys best-to-worst:


1.) 22 Feb 2022 16:53:48
Collins/ Randle.

2.) 22 Feb 2022 16:54:36
Giannis is miles ahead of the rest.





Spaces left for large gaps. The trio of Bam, Siakam, and Sabonis were hard to differentiate. They’re all basically the same to me. Randomize which team they’re on and I don’t think any of the teams change much.

3.) 22 Feb 2022 17:10:44

4.) 22 Feb 2022 19:07:36
1. Giannis
Low skill level for such a great player but wins a lot of games with sheer determination. Seems to be a great teammate. A special player.

2. Tatum
The most skilled of the list, may earn a spot on an all defensive team this year. Has improved as a playmaker and added some much needed toughness. High ceiling.

3. Bam
Would be a great fit on any team. Invisible a little more often than would be ideal.

4. Sabonis
Skilled, consistent, and plays hard. Probably not much room for improvement except for shooting 3s. Limited athleticism.

5. Siakam
Having a great year and becoming a more well rounded player. Only negative is I see him as a little soft.

6. Davis
Has become too unreliable to rank higher. In danger of becoming a bad contract. Healthy and available, he's obviously higher.

7. Randle
Would be a great 3rd option if his ego could handle it.

8. Collins
Quality starter who's overrated because of highlight dunks. Doesn't create for himself or others and mediocre on D.

5.) 22 Feb 2022 23:30:07
agree with Nightcap.



19 Feb 2022 21:56:12
Who do you think is the best individual defender for:



1.) 19 Feb 2022 22:13:24
Giannis: Bam or Simmons
Embiid: Gobert
Lebron: Giannis or Kawhi
Jokic: Embiid
Curry: Bev Smart or Holiday
Lillard: Same as Curry.

2.) 20 Feb 2022 00:30:41
I don't know about a lot of them but for guarding Joel Embiid, Al Horford has given him a lot of trouble.

3.) 20 Feb 2022 03:20:40
Embiid vs Horford

Regular season
3 Wins
8 Losses
22.6 PPG
412 FG%

1 Win
4 Losses
23 PPG
441 FG%.

4.) 20 Feb 2022 23:46:16
We have a couple of mental wizards who disagree with statistics. What an amazing phenomenon.

5.) 21 Feb 2022 02:40:46
Past performances is not always indictive of current results especially considering how much Horford has aged the last couple of seasons.

6.) 21 Feb 2022 07:23:23
Early on Horford gave Embiid problems, but in the past few years he’s only had 1 bad game against him (this year)

18-19 season he averaged 29&13
2018 playoff he averaged 23&14

As of today, I wouldn’t want a 35 year old as the potential best defender on Embiid.

7.) 21 Feb 2022 11:18:51
This season Embiid vs Horford
0 Wins
2 losses
16ppg on 6 of 26 FG

This season Embiid vs Boston without Al Horford
1 Win
0 Losses
41 points on 14 of 27 FG.

8.) 21 Feb 2022 11:39:58
The best guy against Embiid was Marc Gasol, who was past his prime. Smarts and discipline are the most important traits to have. I'm not saying Horford is without a doubt the best but he's certainly in the conversation.

9.) 21 Feb 2022 15:24:38
2 of the 3 games this year that Horford played against Embiid, he played 20 mins or less.

10.) 21 Feb 2022 18:16:40
Well 2 of the games weren't close. Horford only played 19:41 the last game because they won by 48. Nobody played a lot of minutes. What does that matter? Back when Philly signed Horford as a free agent, the whole narrative out of there was that they signed the Embiid stopper. For anybody who follows the NBA it's pretty well known that Horford does well against him. I'm not sure what you're trying to argue.

11.) 21 Feb 2022 19:33:38
I already made my case, the last full season Embiid almost averaged 30 on Horford.

You can’t use this season as an argument Bc Horford doesn’t even start or play a ton of minutes so those stats aren’t really on or against Horford.

12.) 21 Feb 2022 19:35:52
And once again you’re bringing up what happened over 4 years ago lol. Horford is now 35.

13.) 21 Feb 2022 20:10:55
Horford doesn't start? Have you watched any Celtic games?

14.) 21 Feb 2022 20:42:32
I watched them play Atlanta, Detroit and Brooklyn just this month and didn’t play over 25 mins in either one of them. Even if he does start, he doesn’t player starter minutes. This post isn’t for the 2017 season.

15.) 21 Feb 2022 20:51:31
Horford averages 28.3 minutes and Embiid averages 32.9, which is actually useless information when it comes to how good a job Horford does when he guards him, and he does a very good job just like he did in his last go around with Boston. This is pretty well known.

16.) 21 Feb 2022 21:27:09
There’s only 1 month where Horford averages over 26mpg this year. Embiid is also one of the players that uses load management.

Like I said the last full season they played each other Embiid averaged 29PPG. 5 years ago? Yeah he would be at the top of my list. But today I would not choose a 35 year old to guard a top 2 MVP candidate.

17.) 21 Feb 2022 21:59:12
You wouldn't have to choose him and I'm not saying he's the best option because I have no way of knowing that. I can only say that from what I've seen, including this year, Horford has done very well against him.

18.) 21 Feb 2022 22:14:59
Im just pointing out why some people might’ve disagreed with the statistics, majority of the reason they’re low is the battles they had early on in Embiids career. The last full season Embiid dominated.

19.) 21 Feb 2022 22:38:43
The last full season was the 2018-2019 season. In those 4 games Embiid shot 9-21, 10-17, 9-22, and 8-17. For a great player, I would not call that domination. Horford makes him work for his points. He did then, and he's done it this season.

20.) 22 Feb 2022 00:28:34
Yes he averaged almost 30 points that season against Horford lol.

21.) 22 Feb 2022 08:31:19
Hold Embiid to less than 50% shooting in 3 out of 4 games and win 3 out of 4 games-I'll take that every time. And that's your example of his best season against him.

22.) 22 Feb 2022 16:16:57
1. Embiid has 1 season over 50% shooting. So no it’s not a huge accomplishment to hold him around his career total in the 40s.

2. Best individual defender has nothing to do with wins, there’s about 10 other players that play on each team ina. Rotation.

We know you suck you Boston, just don’t get mad next time people click disagree.

23.) 22 Feb 2022 19:17:03
I'm not mad when people disagree, I just think it's odd sometimes.

I know what his shooting percentage is. Preventing him from exceeding it means you're doing a good job, and remember, we're talking about his best year against Horford. I would also say individual D has a whole lot to do with wins, especially when that D is targeted towards the best player. Furthermore, you cannot ignore the years previous or this year regardless of what excuse you come up with to dismiss them. He may have improved, despite his age, at defending him after being a teammate of his. Again, intelligence and discipline are probably the two most important things and Horford has both. That's why Gasol was so good at defending him. You can tell me until you're blue in the face that Horford can't defend him but I've watched every matchup and the results tell a different story.

Durant: Curry
LeBron: DeRozan
Durant: Morant

1.) 05 Feb 2022 17:06:17
I think Lebron will pick CP3 with top pick.

2.) 06 Feb 2022 05:33:23
Im pretty sure the 1st two would be Giannis and Curry.
If Harden is still a Nets, Durant will surely pick him 1st in the reserves.

I've been really low on Brown ever since people've been saying he's better than Siakam, but I'm not blind as to thinking that Trent and OG will become superstars. Boston very likely says no.

You don't necessarily have to bench Russ, but I say stagger his minutes against LeBron as much as possible.

Ingram. Better scorer, more likely to be the no.1 on a team, and yet still can defer.
Morant. Ball has nowhere near the skillset of Ja yet.
IDK because I don't watch college.
Barnes, because I'm a Raptors fan.
Thad Young, again because I'm a raptors fan.
Garland, more proven, better scorer + playmaker
Ayton, more proven
SGA, Maxey hasn't shown anything beyond a 3rd option
Barrett, because I'm canadian + less "arrogant" than herro
Giddey, because I'm Canadian + I'm a huge fan of GIddey.
