If the Warriors actually want to dump Draymond Green for a lottery pick, this trade could make sense.

Warriors get Rudy Gay and the Spurs 2020 first round pick

Spurs get Draymond Green

The Warriors get out of a longterm contract and continue to add youth and assets with the first. The Spurs get a huge boost defensively and Pop gets another chance at contention.

Why in the world would they dump Draymond?


2.) 01 May 2020 13:53:48
Popovich and players with "explosive" personalities?


3.) 01 May 2020 17:03:35
If that’s all it costs for Draymond, Portland should go after him with Ariza and a first. Heck, throw in Collins.


4.) 01 May 2020 17:33:17
Spurs are in rebuild. No way they give highest first in years for a third option at best.

First of all: I highly doubt the Bucks will trade Giannis this summer. They'd rather risk losing him for nothing than just give up on him prematurely. But, if the Warriors win the draft lottery, the Bucks would at least have to listen.

Warriors get Giannis Antetokounmpo

Bucks get Andrew Wiggins, the first overall pick, Minnesota's 2021 first round pick, four second round picks (3 from Philly 1 from Minnesota), two future unprotected GS first round picks, and the right to swap first round picks for two years

It would take a package similar to this one to get the Bucks to even entertain a Giannis trade. The Warriors would have to surrender all of the assets they acquired the past year and then some. However, it's not totally impossible to me: especially if the Bucks have a disappointing postseason.

Rerur

1.) 19 Feb 2020 17:27:43
I don't think Wiggins and 4 firsts does it. Maybe if the Bucks are in love with someone at the top of this draft, but it seems like it's one high end asset away.


2.) 19 Feb 2020 17:53:20
Rerur you don't understand the freak if you think he anything like Durant or Lebron. He would not allow that trade to effect his legacy.


3.) 19 Feb 2020 17:55:43
The two future first are required to off Wiggins for expiring deals so it’s like there getting just the warriors 2020 and the wolves 2021 for Giannis. And two future picks for taking on Wiggins.


4.) 19 Feb 2020 18:40:07
I think it’s not bad. I think a better question is would there be a team that could make a hypothetical better offer?


5.) 19 Feb 2020 18:53:00
Shizzee: If you really think he's different than those guys, you're crazy. Lebron and Durant both looked incredibly loyal through their first 7 or 8 years in the league too. All of these guys want one thing, to win.

And how would a trade affect his legacy? It's not like he is asking to go to GS.


6.) 19 Feb 2020 19:15:22
so why ruin basketball and put giannis frontrunning warriors. they had their time time to move on.


7.) 19 Feb 2020 20:51:45
To me there's only one reason to trade Giannis. and that's if he says he wants out.
If that happens you can bet his agent will give the Bucks a list of teams he would consider re-signing with, and would also let those teams know.
Then it becomes the best package offered.
In any event, if Giannis gets traded his agent will be orchestrating it.

Recent reports say that if the Warriors draft LaMelo Ball, he will likely start at the 3 and Wiggins will be traded for a center. (Source: trendingnba IG). Here's a trade that I think they could realistically make happen.

Warriors get Andre Drummond and a top 10 protected first round pick

Cavs get Andrew Wiggins

The Warriors get a dominant rebounder who is also a solid defender. Drummond will be an expiring contract, so they will have financial flexibility next summer. They also get another asset to trade for depth or to assist them in their youth movement. The Cavs get their former first overall pick back. Wiggins could thrive in a situation where he gets to be the number one option.

Rerur

1.) 18 Feb 2020 20:00:39
The pick is going the wrong way. Wiggins is trash and locked up for multiple years.


2.) 18 Feb 2020 20:02:00
I don't think the pick needs to be included. A straight swap (assuming Drummond picks up his option) isn't crazy though.


3.) 18 Feb 2020 21:00:49
Love for Wiggins. or give Cavs two future first for Wiggins for Drummond.


4.) 18 Feb 2020 22:14:00
BMiller, A straight swap is pretty crazy for the Cavs. Wiggins would be a disaster and is signed for more years. Wiggins takes away shots from the young guys, will have no one to hold him accountable and exacerbates all of the Cavs weaknesses. It’d be bad for the Cavs and Wiggins.


5.) 18 Feb 2020 23:03:56
II that’s an interesting idea. Wiggins for Love would be like 2014 all over again haha. I like the idea of another shooter on the Dubs though, getting back to the splash family concept.


6.) 19 Feb 2020 00:26:56
Straight swap is horrible.


7.) 19 Feb 2020 01:39:49
Cavs weakness is not coaching, bad owners and Wiggins let’s young guys play fast. Might not win but love has been on trading block pretty much since he has been a cav.


8.) 19 Feb 2020 03:57:52
Love and green center and pf may work.


 

 

13 Feb 2020 04:09:20
If Embiid actually wants out of Philly, maybe the Warriors will swoop win.

76ers get Andrew Wiggins, Warriors first round pick, Timberwolves 2021 first round pick

Warriors get Joel Embiid

Simmons and Wiggins isn't really an ideal pairing, but this is probably one of the best offers they could get for Joel.

Bucks get Andre Iguodala

Grizzlies get Ersan Ilyasova, Robin Lopez, Pat Connaughton, and the Pacers first round pick

The Grizzlies apparently want the Pacers first round pick (which the Bucks own) in exchange for Iguodala. The Bucks would have to shed roughly $13.5 million in salary to make it happen. It's a costly trade for the Bucks, but could put them over the edge. With the open roster spots, they could sign guys like Joakim Noah, JR Smith, or Ryan Anderson to replenish their depth. Do you think it's worth it for the Bucks? I'm kind of iffy on it.

Warriors dream offseason

Warriors get LeBron James (he opts into the final year of his contract like CP3 did last summer)

Cavs get Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala

Sign JJ Redick and Brook Lopez to the veteran minimum

Re-sign David West to the veteran minimum, re-tain Patrick McCaw and Kevon Looney (RFA)

C: Draymond Green/Brook Lopez/D. Jones
PF: Kevin Durant/David West/Jordan Bell
SF: LeBron James/Kevon Looney
SG: JJ Redick/Patrick McCaw
PG: Steph Curry/Shaun Livingston

With this squad, it's game over. It might take some time for them to get chemistry but once they do there's no stopping them. 16-0 in the postseason for sure. Redick and Lopez would be leaving a lot of money on the table but I bet they'd do it for a chance to play a big role on the greatest team ever assembled.

2013 NBA Re-Draft

1. Cleveland Cavaliers
Actual pick: Anthony Bennett, PF
Do-over pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF

It didn't take the Cavs long to figure out that Anthony Bennett was one of the biggest draft busts in NBA history. A little over a year after the Cavs drafted Bennett, he was shipped to Minnesota in a deal that brought All-Star PF Kevin Love to CLE. Bennett has continued to do nothing as a T-wolf.

Meanwhile, the 15th overall pick Giannis Antetokounmpo has blossomed into an All-NBA Second Team player in just his fourth season. Giannis lead the Milwaukee Bucks in points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals for the entire 2016-17 campaign(!) en route to a playoff berth. The Greek Freak is currently a three point shot away from becoming a consistent MVP threat.

Kyrie Irving's body control along with the prospect of acquiring Kevin Love was enough to convince LeBron to bring his talents back home in 2014. Imagine if the Cavs had Kyrie Irving and Giannis Antetokounmpo? Although it wasn't super obvious Giannis would be a star after his rookie year, he possessed a rare combination of length and athleticism: the same combination that made LeBron intrigued with center Tristan Thompson. With LeBron at the 4 and Giannis at the 3, a Kevin Love trade is no longer necessary. The Cavs could keep their 2014 and '15 first rounders and use them to address depth issues. A LeBron-Giannis-Kyrie Big 3 would currently be the best trio in the NBA in my opinion, although GSW might have something to say about that. Oh, what could've been...

2. Orlando Magic
Actual pick: Victor Oladipo, SG
Do-over pick: Rudy Gobert, C

Victor Oladipo hasn't been a bust, but he also hasn't been the franchise player the Magic were hoping he'd be. Orlando traded Oladipo to OKC in 2016 for Serge Ibaka, and a year later the Thunder traded him to the Pacers as part of a package for Paul George.

The 27th overall pick Rudy Gobert has developed into the kind of defensive center that would remind Magic fans of Dwight Howard in his prime. In his fourth season, Gobert was named to both the All-NBA Second Team and the All-Defensive First Team. Although he's still nothing special offensively (14 ppg) Gobert has the upside to be the best overall center in the game one day and a multiple DPOY winner.

Gobert would have given the Magic something they've lacked since Dwight Howard: a true franchise player. Rudy would have fit right in with a franchise that has only made the finals with a center as its best player (Shaq in 1995, Howard in 2009). The Magic are far from contention, but they'd be a lot closer with Gobert as the face of the franchise.

3. Washington Wizards
Actual pick: Otto Porter Jr., SF
Do-over pick: CJ McCollum, SG

Otto Porter has been a nice fit in Washington alongside Bradley Beal and John Wall: when Beal is actually playing. Beal has battled injuries throughout his career. Porter and Beal will make a combined $48.6 Million next year, pretty outrageous considering the skill and reliability of both.

McCollum has developed into the perfect complement for Damian Lillard in Portland. His scoring and sweet-shooting would help to take the pressure off any star. McCollum would be a better, more reliable backcourt complement to John Wall than Beal. The Wizards could have easily traded Beal for a veteran small forward or for draft picks. Everything is crystal clear in hindsight though.

4. Charlotte Bobcats
Actual pick: Alex Len, C
Do-over pick: Steven Adams, C

Alex Len is another bust of this class. The Suns have to be kicking their-selves for passing on Gobert and Steven Adams.

Adams has developed into a nice starting center in this league, capable of averaging a double-double while being a good defender. Adams can protect the rim and close out on shooters very well for a big man. The Suns wouldn't be forced to start an over-priced Tyson Chandler at center with Adams around.

The issue with the first scenario is nobody considered Giannis that high of a prospect and a major project at that. If they did select him and didn't trade for Love (kept Wiggins) then that likely wouldn't have been enough to convince Lebron to come back to Cleveland with Giannis a major question mark. They likely still would've had to have made that Love trade to attract Lebron (Lebron clearly signed with the promise the Twolves would trade Wiggins for Love) .

Magic are a mess. Oladipo wasn't that bad a pick given that draft class and as great a defensive force Gobert is without another star on their team Magic wouldn't be much better than they are now. Its highly unlikely they would've drafted a center with a young Vucevic putting in a strong season the year prior.

I don't view McCollum as an upgrade over Beal the only advantage is that he'd been healthy although Beal was able to do that this past year. Those same injuries would tarnish Beal's trade value so I doubt they'd get anyone better than Porter is now especially nobody as young as him. McCollum is being paid basically just as much as Beal. Don't see this switch making much if any difference.

If Steven Adams is going at 4
it's a real thin draft.

My top 10 retake of the draft

1 Cleveland - Greek freak (Kyrie, wiggins, Greek freak)
2 Orlando - Cj McCollom (could've used a 20 point scorer)
3 Washington - R Gobert ( wall, beal, gobert lineup scary)
4 Charlotte - N Noel ( defense walker, mkg, Noel)
5 Phoenix - O Porter ( 3&d alongside Bledsoe and booker)
6 Philadelphia - V Oladipo ( best player available )
7 Sacramento - KCP ( sac choose different gaurd who can defend)
8 Detroit - B McLemore ( more of a sweet shooter for Drummond)
9 Utah - D Shroeder ( way better then trey burke)
10 Portland - S Adams ( Adams + Aldridge would of been fun)

Unlucky c zeller, k Olynyk, A Crabbe, g Dieng.


4.) 17 Jul 2017 14:33:39
My retake of that top 10

1. Cleveland - Giannis Antetokounmpo ( Kyrie, Wiggins, Greek freak would be cool)
2. Orlando - Cj McCollom ( no clear option grabbing a 20+ point player isn't bad )
3. Washington - Rudy Gobert ( a core now of Wall, Beal and Gobert would be scary)
4. Charlotte - Nerlons Noel ( defensive beast to pair with walker and mkg)
5. Phoenix - Otto Porter ( adds defence and 3pt shooting next to booker and Bledsoe)
6. Philadelphia - Victor Oladipo ( needed everything best player available )
7. Sacramento - KCP ( sac town can't develop sg's but kcp can defend well)
8. Detroit - Ben McLemore ( with right development could become sweet 3 and d )
9. Utah - Dennis Schroeder ( they were looking for a pg and he's a lot better then Burke)
10. Portland - Steven Adams (Adams and Aldridge pairing would compliment each other)



Unlucky - Cody Zeller, Allen Crabbe, Gorgui Dieng, Kelly Olynyk.

Cavs get Dwight Howard

Rockets get Kevin Love

It's pretty apparent that the Cavs need a lot of help on defense, and Kevin Love doesn't provide that. His offensive stats have taken a huge hit since Kyrie Irving has returned to the lineup and Love just simply isn't a good defender. Howard, on the other hand, is still one of if not the best defensive big man in the game and still has plenty left in the tank as evident by his recent 36 point 26 rebound outing. Most importantly, Howard wants to win now and is hungry for a ring; so he should have no problem accepting a not-so prominent offensive role in Cleveland. James and Irving should be able to capitalize on plenty of alley-oop passes to the big man however and a Howard-Tristan Thompson front court would be nasty defensively (assuming they don't bring in a stretch four like Markieff Morris) .

The Rockets on the other hand have a putrid defense that would get much worse with swapping Howard for Love. The Rockets really don't have a chance at contending in the West this season anyway, so tanking the rest of this year and getting a good lottery pick seems like the best course of action. Love is younger than Howard, much more dynamic offensively, and is under contract for the next several seasons. Howard is likely to opt out of the final year of his deal this summer and leave Houston if he isn't traded by the deadline. This move would give Houston a legit 1-2 scoring punch in Harden and Love that they can build around over the next couple of years. They would need to surround this duo with top notch defenders if they want to contend, but that is feasible.

NBA Talk

Do you think the Cavaliers would've been better off trading Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and the future first round pick to the Portland Trailblazers for Lamarcus Aldrige instead of to the Timberwolves for Kevin Love?

It's an interesting idea. Aldrige is a better defender than Love and shoots at a higher percentage from the field, but Love is a better rebounder and much better three point shooter. Another aspect to consider is age: Love will only be 27 in September whereas Aldrige turns 30 this month. In my opinion, Love is a better fit offensively alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving because Love is a three point shooter who can spread the floor and create space for the ball handlers. Aldrige could create space with his mid range jumpers but he wouldn't serve as a threat from three (27.6 % from three in his career).

Ultimately, I think the Cavs made the right choice by going with Love. He's younger, a superior rebounder/3 PT shooter and better fits the team in Cleveland (IMO). I could see Aldrige making a lot of sense though, so I want to hear some other opinions. What would you have done?

Rerur

1.) 06 Jul 2015 14:15:28
The Cavs would've been better off with Aldrige. His efficient low-post offense and mid-range game would perfectly complement LeBron and Kyrie. Aldrige would also have provided more help on defense than Love and Aldrige had actual playoff experience prior to this season. Aldrige could've been a leader on this team alongside LeBron and in my opinion the Cavs would've beaten the Warriors had Aldrige been on the team and healthy for the Finals.

If the Cavs never traded for Love, they could be trading for Durant Right now.

Thunder get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, two first round picks

Cavs get Kevin Durant

Imagine how good the Cavs would be right now. Plus the Thunder would get a young future superstar to replace Durant.
