The Cavs get Simmons and Horford

The 76ers get Love, Paul, Garland and the Cavs 2020 1st

The Thunder get Nance, Osman, and Scott


1.) 02 Apr 2020 13:53:11
I think Philly value's Simmons higher than that, but i like this trade. Maybe Cleveland should give a 2022 lottery protected first too.

2.) 02 Apr 2020 14:11:58
Yeah, I had thought about doing that and/ or adding Zaire Smith to OKC.

3.) 02 Apr 2020 14:32:51
Pretty sure Cavs pass on this. Too much to give up for an overpaid old player and a player with a glaring hole in his game.



09 Mar 2020 16:46:29
The Pelicans get Garland

The Cavs get Ball.


1.) 09 Mar 2020 18:39:41
Why would the Pels do this?

Lonzo and Zion are forming a good chemistry, Lonzo APG,FG% 3pt% are all better than Garland's as well

Pels could have taken Garland but traded back to get Hayes. That tells me they did not see that much value in him as well

2.) 09 Mar 2020 22:55:21
Garland as a shooter is more dynamic. He isn’t just taking spot up 3s. He shoots step backs, a lot off the dribble and from deep. He’s great at finding lob threats.

Ball is shooting a solid percentage and volume, but teams aren’t showing him a ton of respect and what he does well offensively gets in Ingram and Zion’s way.

You’re comparing Ball playing relatively well to a rookie pgs overall stats in his rookie year.

3.) 10 Mar 2020 12:23:47
DAC813, I'm not saying if ball or Garland is better? It's too early to judge Garland. But Lonzo is no prize. Solid defense and playmaker and horrible shot and his form is embarrassing.

But your pov to why hayes was draft over Garland is irrelevant if ball is their and they lacked a shot blocker.



04 Feb 2020 13:50:06
The Heat get Iggy and 2 2nds

The Grizzlies get Winslow and Waiters.


1.) 04 Feb 2020 14:25:29
Grizz can just trade iggy to mavs for lee and gsw second no salary the next year. Why would they add salary?

2.) 04 Feb 2020 16:10:22
Winslow is young and perfectly fills a need.



30 Jan 2020 15:53:45
The Cavs get Jordan, Harris, Temple and Kurucs

The Nets get love

There are a lot of 3 way deals that would make sense off of this and maybe the Cavs should give up some seconds or a protected 1st, but it would make a lot of sense for both teams


1.) 30 Jan 2020 16:18:05
have you lost your damn mind, love has a third of that value.

2.) 30 Jan 2020 17:17:22
What value? The only player that has any significant value is Harris. Jordan has significant negative value. Temple is a low end rotation player with 2 years left on his deal and Kurucs is a guy that got arrested recently and is out of the rotation.

3.) 30 Jan 2020 17:35:16
Rkenne Tina turner said it best. what's Love got to do with it lmao. even fake kobi thinks its crazy.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 18:26:55
KD and Kyrie refuse to trade Jordan.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 19:28:05
Wind, maybe, but they’ve seen him up close now. Is it possible that realize that he’s not good?

6.) 30 Jan 2020 20:59:38
I am on the opposite side of this one. Love is by far the best player in this deal. Not enough for Cleveland. It would be a steal for Brooklyn.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 19:29:33
kenne you could be right, but I think it had more to do with friendship and clubhouse chemistry than performance anyway.



24 Jan 2020 14:54:46
The Suns get Robert Williams and Gallo

The Thunder get Hayward, Tyler Johnson, Bridges, Baynes and the Celtics 2020 1st

The Celtics get Adams and Schroeder


1.) 24 Jan 2020 15:29:41
why would okc do this.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 16:19:53
and who is okc going to buy out. no room on roster to take all 4.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 17:01:21
probably Burton.

4.) 24 Jan 2020 19:36:36
Windrapsfan, I’m sure they can find a roster spot. Cut Roberson or something.

Shizzee, they get younger, get a pick, save some money, sure up their wings and aren’t paying a role player 25 million dollars for the next 2 years.

You’re selling high on Schroeder. Baynes and Noel can give them 90 percent of what Adams does for 18 million less. Hayward fills a giants hole at small forward. They’ve done well at developing defensive minded wings and Bridges has all the raw tools you’d want on the defensive end.

5.) 25 Jan 2020 05:08:02
I had to bust your bubble but Schroeder is by far the best backup guard I’ve seen in the league and is shooting the ball really good any guy coming off the bench averaging 18 sometimes 23-25 a night is hard to come by and his contract is really not bad he will bring a good return I’d really like to keep him to be honest but if they’ve trade him they will come out good on him you watch and see.

You're able to have 8 players for the rest of their career to build a team with. Which 8 are you picking?


1.) 05 Apr 2020 16:56:53
Zion, Doncic, Giannis, Siakam, Tatum, Jokic, Bam, Leonard

Put together quickly, but I think that’s the perfect balance of the young greats of the league. The oldest is 28. Most are under 25.

2.) 05 Apr 2020 17:00:14
I’d go

Doncic/ Simmons
Ingram/ Brown
Jockic/ Jaren Jackson.

3.) 05 Apr 2020 21:34:43

Morant/ Young
Doncic/ Booker
Kahwi/ Ingram
Giannis/ Siakim/ Zion
Jokic/ Bam.

4.) 06 Apr 2020 02:02:04
Young/ Morant
Kawhi/ Tatum
Davis/ Embiid.

5.) 06 Apr 2020 19:25:39
Young/ VanVleet
Giannis/ Zion
Siakam/ Tatum



02 Jan 2020 15:52:36
Who has more value right now, Kevin Love or Al Horford and would a Horford Love swap make sense for Philly? (The Cavs either planning to trade Horford down the line or find a 3rd team).


1.) 02 Jan 2020 16:54:47
Send Horford to a 3rd team.

2.) 03 Jan 2020 04:48:31
Horford and fillers for d russel. Gsw needs a big just like AL. Sizers need a real pg so Ben can go to pf.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 16:16:25
I think Horford holds more value just because you can rely on him to stay on the court.



01 Dec 2019 16:16:51
So what's going on with Andre Roberson?


1.) 01 Dec 2019 20:24:11
I have no idea. At the beginning of the season they were saying he should b good to start playing some and then obviously that isn't the case. At this rate i'm wondering if they r just leaving him out until his contract expires or they trade him so the younger guys get more minutes. I have no idea.

2.) 04 Dec 2019 11:37:51
The Thunder recently announced that his return still won't be anytime soon. So he is still out a while.

3.) 05 Dec 2019 09:58:11
What a weird injury. Hopefully, he can get back at some point and at least be something. It’s been like 2 years at this point hasn’t it?

4.) 05 Dec 2019 12:02:31
Close yea. it happened in january 2018 so in a month it would have been 2 years. He just kept haveing more and more set backs in rehab. They never said exactly what the set backs where, but he just keeps getting unlucky i guess.



27 Oct 2019 19:54:12
Watching this Thunder Warriors game, Paul looks so bad physically. Maybe, he just needs to work himself into shape, but I wouldn't touch him, if I were a contender.


1.) 28 Oct 2019 09:33:31
Warriors playing horribly too.

2.) 28 Oct 2019 11:48:39
Chris Paul doesn't look the, best right now, but i love what i'm seeing from SGA he is definitely looking like a future all star.

3.) 28 Oct 2019 14:42:51
Yeah, SGA is rolling and the Warriors have been awful. They have 4 rotation players right now and Steph and Dlo have just been missing. They’re not going to be that bad, but that real is just so bad from the 5th guy on.



15 Aug 2019 14:25:04
Let's say that the Stepien rule doesn't exist, you are an expansion team that has no one on the roster, the Bucks want to trade Giannis for nothing but picks and someone from the future told you that if your team trades for Giannis, he'll stay there for his entire career. How many consecutive picks would you be willing to give up for him?


1.) 15 Aug 2019 16:36:00
Will he give hometown discounts as well? Or are teams paying 40 mil a year for every year?

2.) 15 Aug 2019 17:13:40
7? You give up a lot to get him. He just lead a team of nice vets to the best record in the NBA without another true star.

Hometown discount doesn't matter, he's 100% worth the supermax and you give it to him happily.

3.) 15 Aug 2019 23:39:33
Hometown discounts means more picks I am willing to give up. Probably 3-4 if I am paying supermax and I can get the shooters around him.

Bet thd Bucks take a step back this year?

4.) 16 Aug 2019 14:33:46
Step back meaning the #1 seed in the east, but not the best record in the NBA?

Who in the east is passing them? I have no faith in Phili. I have no faith in Boston. Indy would have a chance if Oladipo was going to be healthy to start the season, but he's not. Toronto isn't good enough (unless Siakim becomes a top 10 player) .

5.) 16 Aug 2019 14:34:28
So you wouldn't give up more for Giannis than teams already have in real life for George or Davis? To me, he's without a doubt better than both.

6.) 16 Aug 2019 18:49:59
I am not sure I would give you better than Anthony Davis. Healthier? Definitely. But skill-wise, Giannis lack of shooting cancels any youthful athletic advantage Giannis has in the transition game. However, in a halfcourt game, AD's versitility is greater. If AD were younger and could play 82 games a season, they would be pretty equal.

7.) 16 Aug 2019 23:18:43
I’d take Giannis over Davis because of his passing an ball handling. It just gives him significantly more control over the game. Giannis was also ridiculously efficient last year on the offensive end and statistically there isn’t a huge difference in their jumpers. Teams are going to sag off both guys.

I was thinking like 8 or 9 1sts. You’re talking about a 25 year old two way monster that has no real injury history and has gotten better every year. You are probably getting your number one guy for the next ten years.

8.) 17 Aug 2019 03:15:41
The problem with giving uo all those firsts is that you only have one way of getting talent around him. Signing Free Agents and the salary cap limits how much you can add as well.

9.) 17 Aug 2019 12:09:34
You have 90 million dollars though. You could chase some restricted guys this summer, you could use your space to add picks and punt the space for a few years, you can go after veteran role players and etc. you’d have the freedom to do almost anything. What if this year/ summer, you go out and get like Hield and Otto Porter for 50 million, get some picks and competent but over payed player with the remaining money and then take some chances on cheap veterans and young retreads. Then go into next free agency with a max slot. You’d likely have a window of 10 years to go get a title.

10.) 17 Aug 2019 18:18:45
I'm taking AD. Most dominate big man in league on both ends and think lbj will take a lot of pressure off him and he stay healthy. like cousins did but cousins couldn't stay healthy. Giannis got exposed by Leonard. Plus need to shoot better.

11.) 17 Aug 2019 19:20:34
He averaged 24 6 and 15 or something in that series. His scoring was down a little bit, but he didn't lay an egg or something. He wasn’t quite as good as he normally is. He’s a 24 year old monster, who has gotten better every year.

12.) 18 Aug 2019 11:07:04
Giannis is good, but not twice as good as Davis, so not worth twice the draft picks that New Orleans got for Davis (disregarding the argument that the Lakers overpaid for Davis) .

13.) 18 Aug 2019 22:21:11
Not saying he is not talented. Just perhaps not TWICE as talented as AD since you want to give DOUBLE the amount of first rounders. And the Lakers overpaid for AD on top of it (So did OKC for PG13). So giving up 3-4 would still be saying that Giannis is better than AD.

14.) 18 Aug 2019 22:23:16
Yeah, but it wasn’t just picks in the Davis deal, one was the 4th pick and they structured the picks to where they get their best picks over the next 5 or so years. Even if you think that Ingram and Ball are only worth one 1st each, you are already up to 6 1sts without weighting the swaps or talking about the other stuff they got in the trade. I’d also argue that Ball and Ingram are worth more than just a 1st.

If I were going to break that trade down to what the value of the picks are

Ingram 2, Ball 2, the 4th 2, the two 1sts that the Pelicans can roll over 3, and the Cavs protected 2020 plus Hart is 1.

That adds up to 10 and you could probably argue more, if you really like Ball, Hart and/ or Ingram.

15.) 19 Aug 2019 01:47:14
See I don't give the players in the trade much value. To me they were just salary fillers because Lakers were just trying to ship them out to create a 3rd max slot. I might give you one first for the whole lot.

That’s a lot to give up for a team that probably couldn’t get out of the first round, could lose Beal in free agency, won't have enough money in free agency for a third max and probably can’t count on Paul as a long term piece. Unless a big unexpected name hits the trade market like a Harden or something, they should probably just tank one more year.

Fredman, I don’t think Drummond really has bother viable option unless a sign and trade can be lined up.

I’m not sure the first one works well for either team. The Cavs end up with 2 combo guards that can’t defend in their back court and the Blazers really don’t get better.

The second is really only good for the Cavs. Unless Portland is looking to blow up, I don’t see how it helps them and I think the 6ers would want more for Simmons.
