hawks trade trae to raptors who may be able to defend around his weaknesses

hawks: nembhard, gary trent jr, salary filler from raps, 2023 CLE 1st via Pacers, 2025 1st Pacers, 2029 1st Pacers, 2026 Raptors 1st

raps: trae young, chris duarte

pacers: scottie barnes

Trae isn't ideal for developing players raptors have needed more half-court juice. Raptors give up on barnes development for a better fitting player.

Hawks get nembhard who can be backup pg and play some sg. Trent is a good young scorer and they get picks going forward. team is tired of trae and they're terrible defensively.

Pacers get scottie barnes who can play point foward and develop next to haliburton who will use him as a secondary creator. Turner gives him a stretch 5 to allow him to be effective early on. Pacers get better defensively and have a good young core


1.) 10 Mar 2023 14:15:36
young is the very definition of a player the Raptors would never sign or trade for. Raps would need to find a new coach to start with, because Nurse's defensive schemes require good defenders at all 5 spots. It would also require Masai and Bobby to do a 180 on their philosophy of building a team that starts with exceptional defense. I wouldn't say there is not some reasonable value in your proposal, but it is one that Toronto would not even consider.

2.) 10 Mar 2023 15:38:42
The Pacers are stealing value. How do they get Barnes for a bunch of spare parts? I'd argue Scottie is the best piece in that trade aside from Trae.

3.) 10 Mar 2023 17:31:03
so the pacers should be giving 4 unprotected picks nembhard and duarte? stylistically having a bunch of switchable tall guys hasn't worked out the way toronto wanted. While I personally wouldnt trade for young I can see how it may make Toronto better. They also did change their strategy in pursuing a traditional center at the deadling (Poeltel or however you spell his name)

4.) 10 Mar 2023 23:07:14
Now that I look at the trade again, I realize the Pacers aren't stealing value. They are giving up a significant amount.



10 Mar 2023 13:27:16
Bulls: Ben Simmons, Cam Thomas, 2023 1st PHX (from nets), 2023 1st Nets, 2027 1st top 5 protected conveys to 2029 unprotected.

Nets: Lavine


sign back up center to guard giannis & embiid in east. try to sign levert instead of harris

pels speed things up
bulls rebuild

pels get- lavine, caruso, drummond

bulls get dyson daniels, jackson hayes, jonas valuncunas, devonte graham, kira lewis, temple, 2023 1st, 2023 via LAL, 2025 1st

pels can play small ball with murphy or nance at 5 great for zion. point zion with shooters got them winning.


bulls get a prospect with upside in daniels. hayes has shown flashes. they also get two 1sts and some filler.

pels get elite players surrounding zion. drummond is for the denver playoff matchup


1.) 02 Jan 2023 10:41:58
İt is very bad trade for pelicans. And against the rules. You wrote 2023 pelicans pick and Lakers pick. Pelicans has swap right. They will send their pick to Lakers when they use swap right. They have only one pick in 2023 not two. Lavine has a very bad contract and not worth it. Pelicans can find cheaper and healtier player with those assests.

2.) 02 Jan 2023 13:28:17
Pass from Pels.

3.) 02 Jan 2023 18:13:47
Kinda feel like the Pels have their stars, they just need the role players ( which they kinda have as well)

4.) 02 Jan 2023 21:27:24
There’s maybe 5 guys I’d trade that Laker pick for. Lavine isn’t close to being one of them.

5.) 02 Jan 2023 22:26:46
Agree with BMiller. Maybe after the lottery when it's not a top 4 pick.



03 Sep 2022 04:43:35
lakers get Bogdonavich, Malik Beasley,Jordan Clarkson, Kenrich Williams , 2025 2nd (BOS/MEM) via OKC

Jazz get russ, 2027 1st unprotected lakers, 2029 unprotected 1st lakers, 2023 2nd (DALorMIA) via OKC

OKC 2023 1st top 13 protected (MIN) via Jazz


1.) 03 Sep 2022 12:23:10
Why would the Jazz give that pick. They better donit without OKC involved.

2.) 05 Sep 2022 04:11:14
Those all are unprotected picks (high value) for mediocre players that would not net unprotected key word here picks from a team with an uncertain future.



22 Aug 2022 06:33:40
More ideas for you brilliant basketball minds

Spurs trade poeltl richardson mcdermott

Lakers trade unprotected 2027 and russ

Lets try put these high basketball iqs to use why or why not ?


1.) 22 Aug 2022 11:50:15
It appears that the market has been telling the Lakers it will take both the 27 and 29 picks to get off Westbrook. Why would the Spurs do this at less than market price?

2.) 22 Aug 2022 12:35:18
I think it take one 1st to move Westbrook, but Poetl is worth a first too.

I don't think La would trade 2 first rounders and only getting Poetle back.

3.) 22 Aug 2022 14:36:11
The market is telling the Lakers it will take 2 firsts to move Westbrook, Poeltl Richardson and McDermott together are worth at least a 1st, Lakers don't have 3 firsts. Lakers are better off either keeping Westbrook or trading him for another bad contract player.

4.) 22 Aug 2022 16:42:25
No way poeltl is worth an UNPROTECTED first but possible they need to throw in seconds to make this work. Two unprotected firsts has been the asking price for a star or deals that have more valuable players . Maybe throw in some seconds? Spurs want to tank if you look at their recent moves these players could hurt their chances at being in last place which has got to be their goal given the garbage roster . Poeltl is a slow footed big who doesn’t shoot 3s.

5.) 22 Aug 2022 16:44:31
The market never said it would take two unprotected firsts just to get off Westbrook ( not even last year) also he’s an expiring contract this year.

6.) 22 Aug 2022 22:14:26
The "unprotected" part is the additional $12 mil in salary that the Spurs will have to pay this year (and the luxury tax relief the Lakers receive for not paying the luxury tax on that $12 mil) .

You ate focusing on the player values and missing the nearly $30 mil that this trade will save the Lakers.

7.) 23 Aug 2022 00:57:11
Westbrook is an expiring so throw in cash considerations.

8.) 23 Aug 2022 01:00:28
Because of the luxury tax? Because the salaries are an 11m difference.

9.) 23 Aug 2022 05:21:24
Lakers are at a x2 multiplier for luxury tax payment because of repeated seasons being over the luxury tax line. So it would be $11 mil in salary + $22 mil in luxury tax savings. Would you give up an unprotected first for that kind of savings. Yes, most teams would.

Ik there's that one crazy Celtics fan who's going to be mad at this one but which is best jaylen brown destination if he leaves? I guess we can just assume wemby lands in hou or San Antonio to make these destinations viable

A) Magic
B) Pacers
C) Jazz
D) rockets
E) Spurs


1.) 24 Mar 2023 18:38:02

I’m not including Franz and Wendell in a deal nope.

2.) 24 Mar 2023 18:57:57
I'd say Orlando, but I'd also say that there is hardly any chance Brown leaves Boston. Those who think he will are not thinking it out properly.

3.) 25 Mar 2023 02:56:56
Jaylen Brown just said abunch of nice things about Sacramento last week. Plus, Jalen Brown went to college at Cal.

Jaylen Brown would be a perfect fit with Fox, Huerter, Murray, Sabonis.

4.) 25 Mar 2023 04:20:03
If Kings get Brown I’ll be so disappointed as a fan of Magic Fredman.

5.) 25 Mar 2023 13:25:50
Well, MD, you are already disappointed as a magic fan so why stop being disappointed now?

6.) 25 Mar 2023 16:53:31
Kings would be giving up Murray and Huerter, Fred. At the least.

7.) 25 Mar 2023 21:48:49
I would reall y like him on the pacers.
We'll trade anything for him accept Mathurin and Haliburton.



17 Sep 2021 22:00:49
Nobody been talking about it but if wall gets bought out I see denver as a good fit with murray's injury and versatility to score comfortably off the ball as well


1.) 17 Sep 2021 23:41:33
It’s a decent fit since Murray can slide to SG

But idk the chance since they have 4 PGs, one being a 1st round pick this year.

2.) 18 Sep 2021 12:44:09
Wall running the offense or Jokic running the offense?

3.) 19 Sep 2021 08:24:58
Wall getting bought out before next summer isn’t logical for owner that is trying to cut salary and save. Buyouts are usually 85% of the money owed.



13 Nov 2020 10:20:02

chicago gets: vic oladipo, grayson allen, guduric, IND 1st 2021, IND 2nd 2021
indiana gets: eric gordon, covington, markannen, B. clarke
Mem gets: Lavine
Hou gets: Myles Turner, Kyle Anderson

Indiana adds a bunch of quality players to compete for championship with well rounded team.
Memphis adds a 3rd young star to play with morant and jackson
Chicago gets a new franchise cornerstone in dipo shooting guard to play with white for years to come along with some picks and a potential big time 6th man in grayson allen.
Houston adds a young center who can also stretch the floor and a reliable wing still getting better


1.) 13 Nov 2020 13:21:38
No from Memphis.



03 Nov 2020 19:53:18
Send Blake Griffin to Denver/Toronto/Houston OR Brooklyn

Help me out here fellas


1.) 03 Nov 2020 21:22:59
Blake Griffin has negative trade value at the moment. I don’t think it’s wise for the Pistons to sell low on him. I think they’ll hold on to him for another year and look at trading him next offseason when he’s an expiring contract and hopefully coming off of a good season.



03 Nov 2020 10:01:07
idk how to but somebody find a deal to send either Derozan or Blake to Denver


1.) 03 Nov 2020 13:25:36
Harris+Barton+a 1st or 2 for DeRozan+Lyles.
