This should happen on draftday
Boston: P george
Indy: Crowder+ J Brown+ I Thomas+ 1rnd pick Nets 18+ 1rnd pick Memphis 19
Boston: draft Fulzz
resign A Johnson, Olynyk
Sf: P George
sixht: M smart
The Pacers can offer IT a Max contract because they will have many rookie contracts (J Brown, M turner, 2017 pick, 2018 pick, 2019 pick, Nets pick 2018, Memphis pick 2019. So there's a little chance he would go to another team.
27 Feb 2017 12:34:59
All that for George to go to the Lakers at the end of the season. Completely foolish!
27 Feb 2017 13:11:25
George might be worth two assets, but not 5.
And as billj says, the Celtics would have him for only a year before he bolts to the Lakers.
Now, for Butler I would up the stakes a bit and offer Bradley, Crowder and the 2018 Brooklyn No. 1.
I would then see if Portland would bite on Thomas for Lillard, and move on Hayward.
That would give you something like:
Off the bench you could have plenty of depth -- Brown, Fultz or Ball, plus Smart.
27 Feb 2017 15:22:45
It's a lot for george, but i think he will stay when we pay him the 200 M contract, so Indy doesn't have to dump him.
PG13 would play for a contender, so i think he likes Boston.
and boston should trade IT now, he's playing like an MVP, But Boston shouldn't give him a Max contract for four years.
We would trade PG for lesser assets, but we want the 2017 pick in that case. And i think Boston rather has Fullz then IT. (I prefere J Brown+ the 2017 pick over this trade)
27 Feb 2017 03:00:28
Boston off season:
A Johnson will be off the books.
J Jerebko will be off the books.
J Young off the books.
K Olynyk off the books.
T Zeller non guaranteed..
Salary projected to be 72 +/-..
If Golden State wins this year Is it possible Durant (opt out after this yr.) could come to Boston?
They have enough to sign him to a max deal or a possible S/T which will give them an extra yr..
But then you have IT4 that will get 180 million max deal after next year, as well as A Bradley...
If KD isn't in the future then Butler will be, or not..
Trade for M Plumlee..
27 Feb 2017 03:32:26
You think Durant would leave GS after one year if they win a ring? That doesn't make sense to me.
Plumlee is an RFA this offseason. and he'll be fairly expensive (4 years 75-100 million) .
27 Feb 2017 03:44:21
Also don't think it's an absolute lock that Ainge gives IT a max deal. He'll be 29 when it begins, will be making $40mm when he's 33. His size or lack thereof will become more of an issue as he ages. They are already paying Horford lots of dough on backside of his career. Think they hope to draft Fultz and see what he's made of before making that decision.
27 Feb 2017 04:26:57
Nobody knows what will happen. All I'm saying is he liked Boston and it's not impossible that he couldn't do that. He'd be the MAN in Boston
If a Durant would come to Boston IT14 would take take less to be a part of something that many players think of but can't be. A Championship, with the best team in NBA with the richest History of them all . Anything is a possibility.
27 Feb 2017 04:58:01
I think when IT4's contract expires he should only sign a 2yr max deal with Boston.
27 Feb 2017 06:05:04
He won't do a 2 yr. contract because the future salary cap will not be going the way they have the past 2 yrs. It will level out. But will he take a back loaded contract to win in the next 2 years. He'll still be good in 4 years, he's small and lean and will last longer than a much bigger player, unless of course an injury prevents that.
Drafting a Fultz or a Ball could make him dispensable. Smart was drafted as a PG but his real value is at the 2 position as he can cover anyone and can play 1-4.
Bradley I would think could be moved next year but could also resign as his injury history would make him a non max contract.
I don't see Plumlee getting 75-100. Possible but doubtful unless he signs with a bad team.
I see him maybe 50-65 max, he's under contract next season for 3.3 so he'd he could be had for one season, not to mention Denver has Nikola.
27 Feb 2017 06:08:50
Thomas would be a fool to only sign a two year deal. He needs to take all he can. With his size and style, he can't leave anything on the table.
27 Feb 2017 06:25:00
Sure there is a chance Durant signs with Boston as he was interested last summer but Its not a very likely scenario. It'll be interesting to see what Boston does with IT. He certainly is a great player and his play now dictates a large payday for him (he isn't a player that has made a ton of money over his career) but its going to be difficult committing that much money to him. I think if Boston can swing a deal for George, Butler or can sign Hayward they may just go all in for a championship and embrace the luxury tax. Otherwise, it only makes sense for them to consider letting him get his payday elsewhere and building around Fultz, Ball or Smith (depending on how their lottery goes) . They could also resign Smart instead who is younger and cheaper.
27 Feb 2017 01:25:00
Moving Noah at the cost Melo
Kings get Melo Noah Vujacic Ndour
Heat get Koufos Temple
Knicks get Gay Ellington McRoberts Toliver
Melo and Noah lead Kings in rebuilding without giving up any pieces. Melo best chance to his California dream.
Heat need a back behind Whiteside
Gay is worthy replacement at cost of moving Noah for expiring contract. Knicks Sign Patrick Mills Anderson Roberson and Jonathan Simmons 4yr 60mil
27 Feb 2017 02:00:27
SAC is not his CA dream. And Melo and Noah would only make the rebuild worse.
27 Feb 2017 03:31:03
Replacing Koufos Gay Temple Toliver is nono bc they are contributing to rebuilding. Noah and Melo are good leaders. He has been handling himself professionally. Melo could be traded again, hopefully divac learns get value than Cousins trade. He value greater than any one the Kings roster currently. Noah leadership for team with direction is worth 17 mil per yr.
27 Feb 2017 05:00:24
It's s mute trade. Melo would not accept a trade to sac.
27 Feb 2017 05:49:25
Who are the 4 people who think SAC is where Melo wants to be and huge contract guys on their last legs is good for a rebuilding team? Hilarious.
27 Feb 2017 00:09:47
76ers off season
1. Do not resign splitter, rodriguez, Stauskas, henderson
2. Offer the bank to try and get otto porter. Long shot, but possible
3. Bring over sg Korkmaz
4. Better then 50% possibility they get 2 picks in the 4-8 range. With a little luck, draft Monk and Markannen.
5. Keep okafor as back up to Embiid. Okafor still on rookie contract, only 21, and value can't possibly be any lower then it is now, not worth trading.
Still have all there own #1 picks, 2017 swap rights with kings, 2019 kings unprotected #1, OKC 2020 protected #1, and literally 15 2nd rd picks in the next 5 years.
27 Feb 2017 02:29:29
Not bad, but you need a veteran with that last roster spot.
27 Feb 2017 03:04:16
NBA: Hoe about a realistic vet signing like Amir Johnson. he's an UFA, would come at a reasonable rate, is used to being a rope player, and is known to be a bery good locker room presence. Put him in the pf rotation.
27 Feb 2017 03:05:41
Can philly get a star with that group? If so where do they play?
27 Feb 2017 03:24:55
Nah not Amir Johnson, I'm talking about a veteran that would mostly be on the bench.
And Simmons and Embiid are the stars (soon to be)
27 Feb 2017 10:08:42
I'm not sure Simmons should play PG or PF.
I hope they get lucky in the draft and that they could draft Ball or Fulzz.
26 Feb 2017 19:00:05
Pelicans - Alec Burks
Jazz - Alexei Ajainca, 2 future 2nd round picks
Pelicans - Brandon Knight, TJ Warren
Suns - Solomon Hill, Quincy Pondexter (Waive) 2018 protected pick
Resign holiday, Monteunas, Cunningham, Casspi
PG - Holiday - Knight
SG - Burks - Moore
SF - Warren - Casspi
PF - Davis - Cunningham
C - Cousins - Monteunas.
26 Feb 2017 21:08:04
You're crazy. Knight as a backup would be 13.6 mill cap hit. Meaning in two years Davis cousins holiday and knights would be at like 100 mil. So you need 2 starters and 6 bench players for 10-20 million. Destined for failure.
26 Feb 2017 22:02:56
No need for Knight, Frazier can be backup. I also don't think Jazz or Suns do those trades.
27 Feb 2017 01:31:49
Somebody tell burger cap is at 102mil it's OK to spend.
27 Feb 2017 07:45:21
Suns dnt do that trade!
26 Feb 2017 18:20:37
This works only if Blake Griffin leaves LA for another place:
To LAC - Melo
To NYK - Rivers, W. Johnson, B. Johnson
Should Griffin leaves, the Clippers would have approximately $12M to spend, which would not get them another star player. The difference between these two packages dollar wise, including Melo, trade kicker would be about $10M. If Melo were to waive his no trade clause, it would happen in the summer, and it would be to LA. Paul resigns with Melo there.
Stash and dash
P. J. Tucker
Knicks won't compete for top level FA's, so two quality vets who contribute defense and shooting without breaking the bank would be a win for NY.
PG - Hill, Ntilikina, Rivers
SG - Lee, Rivers
SF - Tucker, Thomas, Johnson
PF - Zinger, Kuzminskus, Isaiah
C- Hernangomez, O'Quinn, Noah.
26 Feb 2017 18:26:40
Clippers have to part with at least a 1st rd pick.
26 Feb 2017 19:25:41
Bruce Johnson is the 1st, as the Clips don't have one to trade for a few years.
26 Feb 2017 21:10:31
The issue also is they won't have Noah making 17 mill as the 3rd strong center. Perhaps should. But they won't.
27 Feb 2017 01:33:08
Trade Melo to move noah.
26 Feb 2017 03:08:00
Knicks next either figure the big 4 Lebron Wade Melo CP3 or retool
Noah Ntilikina to Brooklyn for cap space and 2nd
Wade for Lee Thomas
Melo Noah for Parker Green Gasol
Sign George Hill or Otto Porter 4yr 92mil 15 mil in 17
26 Feb 2017 14:09:36
The first option of the two isn't bad, but three years of Noah's contract is too for the Nets to agree to. If he only had one more year left, then maybe, but the length is the issue.
Second option, there is no way is heck that San Antonio agrees to that deal.
26 Feb 2017 01:56:30
With Williams signing with cavs soon. Cavs should waive McRae and sign bogut once waived if not sign sanders
Irving Williams felder
Smith shumpert liggins
James korver Jefferson
Love frye jones
Thompson bogut Williams
26 Feb 2017 20:16:56
With everyone thinking Bogut is going to sign with LBJ Inc. I'm thinking he's not. I see him going back to Golden State or to Boston.
27 Feb 2017 02:28:55
Bogut is not allowed to sign with Golden State.
25 Feb 2017 23:52:46
LA Lakers moves
-Buyout Jose Calderon
3-Josh Jackson (Kansas)
(Rockets pick) 27- Luke Kennard (Duke)
33- Draft and stash player
-Re-sign Nick Young 2yr 25m
-Sign Alonzo Gee
-Sign Jeremy Evans minimum
Pg: Russell, Clarkson, Ennius
Sg: Jackson, Young, Kennard
Sf: Ingram, Deng, Gee
Pf: Randle, Nance, Evans
C: Black, Zubac, Mozgov.
26 Feb 2017 14:29:32
Pretty sure if they get their 1st this year their 2nd and a future 2nd goes to Orlando but if they fall in the draft and their pick goes to the Sixers then 2019 first goes to orlando.
26 Feb 2017 16:54:27
Monk would be a better pick for the 3 pick overall.
25 Feb 2017 18:29:27
Trade Henson for B Knight
Sign and Trade Delly for Staukus and 2nd rd pick
Let Hawes walk
Terry Retires probably if not bring him back
Greg Monroe opts to stay in Milwaukee
Sign Donuts 2 yr 3 Mil
Sign Fredette 3 yr 15 mil
Draft Harry Giles
25 Feb 2017 22:32:59
Too much for Fredette.
26 Feb 2017 01:45:18
I don't think the Bucks bring back both snell and Beasley due to money.
Monroe most likely won't opt in.
The Bucks probably are going to steer away from Giles due to the fact that they will be scared of a guy who tore his ACL twice in one knee.
Jabari will not be ready next year.
26 Feb 2017 03:35:55
Donuts will get more than that if his back checks out.
