Cavaliers receive: Isaiah Todd, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl & Tre Mann
Thunder receive: Ricky Rubio & 2 2nds ('25 & '26 via Cavs)

Cleveland adds bench depth.
Thunder get some assets for guys they might cut.


1.) 16 Oct 2023 16:27:43
Thunder needs assets?

2.) 16 Oct 2023 17:27:44
Meant Isaiah Joe, not Todd.



05 Oct 2023 16:42:44
Cleveland receives: Bennedict Mathurin, Jarace Walker, Buddy Hield, '24 & '26 top 5 protected firsts.
Indiana receives: Donovan Mitchell

Cleveland gets a nice package for Mitchell.
Indiana adds a player who could fit well next to Tyrese.




28 Sep 2023 16:20:07
Cleveland gets: Duncan Robinson, Caleb Martin & '26 srp via Lakers
Miami gets: Isaac Okoro, Ricky Rubio, Dean Wade & Sam Merrill

Cleveland adds a shooter & a wing. They add much needed wings to the roster.
Miami does this to unload Robinson for more cap flexibility. Okoro is a decent prospect worth taking a close look. Dean Wade is a shooting big, could bring value off the bench. Rubio is non-guaranteed for next season & is considering retirement.


1.) 28 Sep 2023 18:38:16
Miami gives up the best player and draft capital. LOL!

2.) 28 Sep 2023 19:42:25
They also dump a bad contract & get under the tax.

3.) 29 Sep 2023 00:48:31
Miami is one of those teams that doesn't worry too much about the tax level.



22 Sep 2023 18:50:41
Cleveland gets: Tim Hardaway Jr. & Jaden Hardy
Dallas gets: Isaac Okoro, Ricky Rubio, Dean Wade & 2 2nds ('25 & '26)

Cleveland upgrades their bench.
Dallas gets salary relief next year & a cheap big who can stretch the floor.


1.) 24 Sep 2023 23:00:14
Not enough for Hardaway + Hardy.

My dream Cavs re-tool

Trade #1:
Cleveland gets: Scoot Henderson, Anfernee Simons & Jusuf Nurkic
Portland gets: Darius Garland & Jarrett Allen

Cleveland chooses to go into a different direction. As of now, their ceiling is second round, which is not enough. Scoot is a great fit next to Mitchell. Simons would be a great bench piece & Nurkic is added to match salary, but he could contribute as well.
Portland goes for players who are proven & young as well. They then have the ability to trade Lillard for players that fit next to Garland & Allen.

Trade #2:
Cleveland gets: Brandon Miller & Mark Williams
Charlotte gets: Evan Mobley & Ricky Rubio

Cleveland mixes it up to try & have a higher ceiling by going for younger players with high upside. Miller has star potential & Williams has a high ceiling himself.
Charlotte gets one of the best young players in the NBA, a good fit next to LaMelo.

In these scenarios, the Cavs do this to build around Mitchell. He's the future of this team, the best player on the roster & the only one who is close to being a superstar. If you put together a winning team next to him, he'll likely stay. Besides, the Cavs can offer him much more money compared to other teams.

Coaching change
Cavaliers fire J. B. Bickerstaff in favor of an assistant coach who is highly regarded in Charles Lee. J. B. Bickerstaff is not very well liked amongst Cavs fans thanks to some questionable decisions & poor adjustments.

Sign Wenyel Gabriel

New Cavaliers line-up:
PG: Scoot Henderson / Ty Jerome
SG: Donovan Mitchell / Anfernee Simons / Max Strus
SF: Brandon Miller / Caris LeVert / Isaac Okoro
PF: Wenyel Gabriel / Georges Niang / Dean Wade
C: Mark Williams / Jusuf Nurkic / Damian Jones
Coach: Charles Lee.

Apologies for the spam. I had to modify my trades, didn't realize they would all be posted.

How was my ESPN fantasy basketball salary cap draft? Please rate my team from 1-10, 7 or higher is good. Thinking about trading Tre Jones for a Center. I thought players could be listed in multiple positions.

Thanks for taking your time to rate my team. Appreciate everyone's feedback.

Do you think I can win the championship with that roster?

20 Chet Holmgren OKC, PF $23
25 Mikal Bridges Bkn, SF $38
29 Andrew Wiggins GS, SF $5
32 Zion Williamson NO, PF $22
36 Russell Westbrook LAC, PG $6
38 Donovan Mitchell Cle, SG $37
40 Marcus Smart Mem, SG $3
45 Darius Garland Cle, PG $25
56 Tre Jones SA, PG $2
66 Aaron Gordon Den, PF $3
69 Spencer Dinwiddie Bkn, SG $7
71 Evan Mobley Cle, PF $12
87 Jarrett Allen Cle, C $4.


1.) 30 Aug 2023 05:07:59
I would say it's pretty average so 5.

2.) 31 Aug 2023 21:27:01
do the numbers mean you took zion 32nd for 22$? seems kinda odd you didnt get a pick on the top 20, but maybe im just misinformed on the format.

I think this is a super solid team:

Holmgren/ Allen
Zion/ Mobley/ Gordon
Bridges/ Wiggins
Mitchell/ Smart/ Dinwiddie
Garland/ Westbrook/ Jones

Lots of good depth. Only thing is you don't have a top-10 star, maybe Mitchell can be that guy? IDK

depth 9/ 10
firepower 8/ 10
shooting 8/ 10
defense 8.5/ 10
injury prone 6/ 10

overall 39.5/ 50 = 7.8 / 10.

Please remove the one that was posted & replace it with the last one I sent. Thanks & sorry for the inconvenience.


{Ed001's Note - I can't, I deleted it as I thought they were the same on a quick look. If you send it in again I can do that for you.}



09 Feb 2023 20:45:36
Wow, that was a wild trade deadline!

Who do y'all have as winners?

I got the Nets. They got the most out of their superstars in terms of value. I think they'll still be competitive, they have some very interesting pieces & a decent coach.


1.) 10 Feb 2023 02:48:03
I like the Net, Lakers, and Blazers.

2.) 10 Feb 2023 14:21:18
Not really sure what Portland accomplished. Got a first for flipping Hart into Thybulle? Seemed pretty "meh" to me.

3.) 10 Feb 2023 19:28:08
It wasn’t great, but I’m much happier they decided to turn vets into assets than assets into vets. They weren’t contending. Might as well stock up and see what the offseason can bring.

4.) 11 Feb 2023 03:26:45
Hart is decent but like Bmiller said they aren’t contending. I very intrigued to see Reddish get pt and an opportunity to get steady minutes. I assume he will start at the 3 or be a major bench contributor. Thybulle also adds youth and elite defense.



03 Jan 2023 03:13:53
Donovan Mitchell scored 71 points in a close overtime victory over the Bulls!

Historic performance, first ever 70-10 game. He was 2 rebounds shy of a triple double.


1.) 03 Jan 2023 16:36:09
Arguably the 2nd best regular season game of all time.

2.) 03 Jan 2023 21:32:28
Wilt's 100 and Kobe's 81. Which one is not making the cut, NBA16?

3.) 04 Jan 2023 00:05:51
I honestly have it slightly over Kobe’s

71/ 8/ 11 FG:65% 3pt:46% 20FTM

81/ 6/ 2 FG:60% 3pt:53% 18FTM

Cavs/ Bulls game was also very close and Mitchell wasn’t left open as the Raps did Kobe in 4th.

4.) 04 Jan 2023 22:50:26
Idk if Wilts can ever be topped. 100 & 25, and no telling how many blocks (prolly had a triple double)



09 Dec 2022 19:15:45
The Sacramento Kings did something that went under the radar. They traded a '24 first round pick that is protected through 2026, which means they can't trade any first-round picks until '28 as long as the pick hasn't conveyed.

That is a smart move for a franchise with a shaky past. It eliminates any chance of them mortgaging their future for a star.

We've seen teams trade all their future firsts end in disaster, like the Nets-Boston transaction.


1.) 09 Dec 2022 23:22:01
Ya it’s great! Fart noise.

2.) 10 Dec 2022 03:08:09
Yea, the Kings GM has done a great job getting Sabonis, getting expiring contracts, flipping those contracts + a protected first for Huerter, and then signing Monk away from the competition (Lakers) as well as hiring Mike Brown away from the competition (Golden State) .

The Kings seriously need to extend GM Monte McNair's contract that expires at the end of this season. Then focus on extensions for Sabonis and Monk.

It seems like the only "poor" move the GM has done may have been signing Rashaun Holmes to that 4 yr/ $48 mil (last year a Player Option) contract. But if that is the only bad move, we can live with that.

I seriously think that McNair could be in running for Executive of the Year. GM Danny Ainge and David Griffin/ Trajan Langdon would be the competition in my book.

3.) 10 Dec 2022 18:49:37
@Fredman honestly, $12 million per season is pretty reasonable. They can easily move on from him if they don't want him.

This is horrible for Toronto. Flynn is their back-up point guard, they're left with no back-ups for Schroder after this trade.

That's not enough for OG, you'll have to give up a lightly protected first.

The value is fair, but I'm not sure DeRozan is the right target for Miami. They should aim higher.

Mike Bibby was a big part of those fun Sacramento Kings teams. I don't know if he had all-star accolades, but he certainly passed the eye test.

Harris+Ross+Franz Wagner+Return Chicago

That's a massive overpay. I wouldn't trade Wagner straight up for LaVine.

The Mavs need to do something fast, or else Luka is going to demand a trade. Losing Brunson was a big blow to that franchise.
