Big no on hawks trade.


2.) 30 Aug 2019 01:27:29
Big no on both trades.


3.) 30 Aug 2019 03:09:17
Without question a Phoenix fan. Maybe a relative of Booker. No way for either trade.


4.) 30 Aug 2019 11:58:12
If you want an idea what kind of trade package Booker can get, look at what the Kings got for Boogie Cousins. 1 young lottry talent, 1 lottery pick and expiring salary filler. So the Hawks deal is about right, but I think they eould rather go with Reddish and Huerter than Booker.


5.) 30 Aug 2019 13:35:59
Suns will only trade their self-anointed "face of the franchise" in one of those deals that overwhelms them. These deals don't approach that level so, PHX wouldn't have any interest. Oh and Alex Len back to a place he loathes and where he underachieved for 4 years? Don't think so.


6.) 30 Aug 2019 15:06:28
Booker is in a weird place where he and Phoenix think he's got a future as a superstar, but I'm not sure anyone outside of Arizona thinks so. I think Booker is a lot closer to CJ McCollum than a superstar.

He'll have to accept a role as a second star if he ever wants to win, and if Phoenix wants to move him will have to accept that's his value.

Booker=Utah's version of Gordon Hayward.


8.) 31 Aug 2019 13:49:53
Bmiller66,that is true about Booker. He's good not great (like McCallum) and his value to the Suns is nearly as much a management/ marketing one as it is an on court one and, that is unfortunate. He got his huge contract and is placated by these latest round of staff changes the Suns have made but unless they get a lot better this coming year (and his play is a big part of that), he will start making serious noise about getting moved. Still, the way PHX views Booker, they would resist any overtures to move him unless it was for a package well above what the market may say he is worth.

Plus, didn't Phoenix just get approved gor a new stadium? They are going to need talent to move i to that new arena.


10.) 01 Sep 2019 13:42:38
Almost. Not a new arena, mostly public money to refurb the existing place which, of course, sits really well with the voters of PHX. One of the many reasons why the Suns have this deluded idea of "face of the franchise" stuff, a likable guy who they can build up to the fan base who is a "pillar in the community".

I think Portland needs one more piece after acquiring Whiteside.

I think they should look to acquire Kevin Love

If Whiteside is working out great or Nurkic is struggling to find his footing since coming back from injury.

POR trades:

Kent Bazemore
Jusuf Nurkic
A 1st round pick (or 2)

for Kevin Love

OR

If Whiteside isn't playing well or Nurkic is playing really well.

POR trades:

Hassan Whiteside
2 1st round picks

for Kevin Love


Once they get Love, Portland's lineup would be either:

PG: Lillard - Simons
SG: McCollum - Hood - Trent Jr.
SF: Bazemore - Hezonja - Little
PF: Love - Labissiere
C: Whiteside - Z. Collins

or

PG: Lillard - Simons
SG: McCollum - Hezonja
SF: Hood - Little
PF: Love - Labissiere
C: Nurkic - Z. Collins

I don't know if this would put the Blazers in the "Title contender" category because I think they need another wing (like Robert Covington would be a perfect fit) but I think this lineup would put the Blazers a hell of a lot closer to that category.

Thoughts?

This would definitely happen around the trade deadline.


2.) 03 Jul 2019 21:13:25
It would have to be the second one to me. Nurkic is head and shoulders better than Whiteside, and he's locked in on a cheap deal. I wouldn't give him up for Love, and I wouldn't hitch my wagon to a guy like Whiteside.

I like this trade for Golden State and Minny but I don't know if Orlando does this. Considering that both Fournier and Teague are expirings (Fournier has a player option after this year - which I think he'll decline), I would rather have Fournier.

I think attaching a pick next to Teague would give the Magic a greater incentive to do this trade.

True, NOP would be a good spot.

If Phoenix was looking to trade him/ had to trade, I think ATL would be a good landing spot for him as well.

Say ATL gave up Cam Reddish, Bruno Fernando, John Collins, and a 1st. I think that would work.

I could definitely see this trade between the Pacers and Spurs happening. Especially around the trade deadline once the Spurs see how good (or not good) Dejounte Murray looks coming back from his injury.

These all seem like players the Lakers would sign (stupidly)

But I think LeBron should play point guard next year if Kawhi comes.

If you have Rondo with Lebron, Davis, and Kawhi, someone will have to take a backseat. And with Rondo not being effective without the ball and LBJ, AD, and Kawhi not taking one either, this starting lineup will be a disaster.

Lakers should try to have a roster that looks more like this if they acquire Kawhi.

PG: LeBron - Thomas
SG: Green - Daniels
SF: Kawhi - M. Morris
PF: Kuzma - M. Morris
C: AD - J. Noah/ T. Chandler

- Good bench shooting
- Good Vet Players


Maybe I'm being a little overzealous with the Morris twins coming on vet min deals, but I definitely don't see Rondo being in the LA Lakers starting 5 if Kawhi comes.
