sixers want to move bayless in a deal to clear his 9 million, not take hardaways 15 million back. doesn't make any sense for Philly. Sixers want enough cap to sign a max FA and resign some of their own role players, Hardaway and his contract is the last thing they would go after.

Knicks pass.

19 Apr 2018 23:26:33
Pretty terrible for the Knicks. The Cavs pick is top 10 protected the next two years and if it doesn't convey in 2020 it's 2 2nd round picks. So If Lebron stays, it's a pick on the 20s and if he leaves, it's likely 2 2nds.

20 Apr 2018 13:14:34
10 spots is a huge drop for a rebuilding team, and 2nd's are never sure fire NBA'ers. I don't like it for the Knicks.

that is way, way too much for kevin love.
and the 2nd trade would be more fair if hill was the one being packaged with assets.
and that pick trade with chi is lopsided too.
smith and robinson will likely be gone by those stages of the draft also.
but nice try trying to danny ainge a chest of draft picks.

19 Apr 2018 12:25:40
If Minnesota wanted Hill, they would have signed him last year instead of Teague.

18 Apr 2018 15:19:53
Atlanta rebuilt
Draft: doncic and R Williams
Sign Hood and Nurkic to a 3y 72 M ( 20M/ 24M/ 28,8M)

C: Nurkic/ Williams/ Plumlee
PF: Collins/Cavanaugh
SF:Doncic/Bazemore
SG:Hood/ Bazemore
Pg: Schroder/Taylor

18 Apr 2018 16:41:19
That's an overpay for Hood and Nurkic. Even if you factor in that they're restricted.

18 Apr 2018 16:52:47
If Atlanta wants Nurkic, I think it would take about that for Portland to not match. Clearly an overpay, but Portland would match ~60 million. Same probably goes with Hood.

Both of those contracts would be devastating to Portland, Cleveland, and Atlanta in the long run I think. Cleveland and Portland would lose guys that they see as building blocks. Atlanta would have two enormous contracts and guys that aren’t stars attached to them. But that’s how you get free agents when you’re a bottom tier team.

18 Apr 2018 17:09:14
Those are big contracts, but it's only for three years.
I believe Nurkic can be a 20-10 guy in Atlanta.

18 Apr 2018 19:42:02
If Atlanta is trying to rebuild then it wouldn't make sense to just throw money at players. Rodney Hood is definitely not worth 3 yr/ 72 mil, plus he's already 25 and hasn't really made significant improvements over his career. Nurkic could make sense, but I don't know how great of a fit he would be next to John Collins.

17 Apr 2018 21:24:15
Took some time working on possible trades for the hawks tell me if you think their possible or realistic.

Trades involving Plumlee

1)Knicks receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Joakim Noak, Pick 37 2018 draft, and possibly a future 2nd

Pros Knicks receive a center who is willing to play and 6 Mill in cap and about 7 mill the following year
Pros Hawks receive draft picks as well as a defensive minded center who could be a mentor for John Collins

2)Magic receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Bismack Biyombo and pick 41 in 2018 draft.

Pros magic receive 4.5 mill in cap for the next 3 years which could be useful in Aaron Gordons free agency or for another free agent
Pros Hawks receive draft pick and 25 year old who is a little bit more in line with their time line

3) Wizards receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Mahinmi and pick 44 in 2018 draft

Pros Wizards receive around 4.2 mill in cap this year which they could really use what with other bad contracts as well as a younger center
Pros Hawks receive draft pick

4)Rockets receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Ryan Anderson and pick 46 and possibly a future 2nd or 1st

Pros Rockets receive 7.1 mill this year and around 8 and 9 mill for the next two years respectively and for a LBJ pursuit this could be valuable
Pros Hawks receive draft picks as well as a possible shooting mentor for John Collins

5)Lakers receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks recieve Loul Deng pick 47 and future 2nd

Pros Lakers gain 4.7 in cap this year and around 5 mill in the next two years and with a club going after cap its a win
Pros Hawks gain draft picks and mentor

6)Memphis Receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Chandler Parsons Ivan Rabb and pick 32

Pros Memphis gains 11.5 mill in cap which could help sign a decent free agent
Pros Hawks get a pick and a young player

7) Pelicans receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Solomon Hill and ether Etwaun Moore or Alexis Ajinca and pick 51 and possibly a future heavy protected first

Pros Pels receive between 4.5 and 8.2 in cap depending on which second player is put in giving them much needed cap space for boogie or another free agent
Pros Hawks receive draft picks

8) Suns receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Brandon Knight and Jared Dudley with pick 16 or pick 51 and a future 1st round pick

Pros suns receive 11 mill in cap and get rid of an older player out of their time line
Pros hawks receive draft picks a okay pg who if schroder gets traded could replace as the starter and a menter in dudley for Prince

9) Nets receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Timofey Mozgov and pick 45

Pros Nets receive a younger center and gain 2.8 in cap this year and around 3-3.8 mill the next two years
Pros Hawks gain draft pick.

17 Apr 2018 22:13:48
I Like the magic trade.

17 Apr 2018 22:28:48
I don't agree with a few of the scenarios but i definitely respect the depth of thought involved

In the scenario with the Pels it just would not work out when Boogie re-signs. It would leave Darius Miller as your only true SF and would not give them the cap room to sign a decent SF in FA. Pels have to continue growth or risk losing AD

Of all the scenarios i see Houston as most likely maybe Memphis second most.

17 Apr 2018 22:54:08
Maybe Minnesota for Dieng?

18 Apr 2018 00:22:09
10) Minnesota receives Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Grogui Deng and Pick 48 and future second due to his contract being one year longer than plumlees

Pros Wolves gain 2-5 mill over the next four years
Pros Hawks gain draft picks.

17 Apr 2018 21:19:06
Took some time working on possible trades for the hawks tell me if you think their possible or realistic.

1)Knicks receive Miles Plumlee
Hawks receive Joakim Noah and pick 37 in 2018 nba draft

Pros knicks receive about 5.3 in cap this year and around 6-7 mill for the following two years as well as a center who is willing to play
Pros Hawks receive draft pick and a defensive minded center who could be a mentor for John Collins who needs help on the defensive side

17 Apr 2018 21:28:44
Im not sure ATL would bite so early. This could be a potential deal at trading deadline. Idiot ny management must learn to change their mentality about how to treat players they don't want. Start playing them more to increase their trade value. With Porzingis likely out until next January and kanter considering opting out. Noah should see more playing time. So this trade could happen in 2019. But not before that.

17 Apr 2018 02:25:55
MIA/PHX/ATL

MIA get Tyson Chandler & TJ Warren
- Chandler will serve as Adebayo's mentor and they get a young talented wing in Warren

Pg Dragic/Johnson
Sg Richardson/Wade/Waiters
Sf Warren/Babbitt
Pf Johnson/Olynyk
Ce Adebayo/Chandler

PHX get Hassan Whiteside, Dennis Shroeder & 4th pick
- get their CE & PG to move 3 spots in a deep draft
- draft Marvin Bagley or Justin Jackson

Pg Shroeder/Ulis
Sg Booker/Daniels
Sf Jackson/Dudley
Pf Bagley/Chriss
Ce Whiteside/Bender/Len

ATL get 1st pick & Brandon Knight
- draft Ayton

17 Apr 2018 05:00:02
I don't think the heat give up Whiteside for Warren and Chandler. Also Atlanta doesn't get #1 Just for throwing in Schroeder. Knight contract I expiring so pic is better of either packaging it for a star or keeping him.

17 Apr 2018 06:55:41
USA, You said it yourself that this was a deep draft. So why would the hawks trade away their best player (a 24 year old locked down on a very friendly $15.5 mil contract for the next 3 years) and absorb Knights awful contract (in terms of player value) for the next two years if they can get a solid prospect with the 4th pick? Suns need to be giving up more.

17 Apr 2018 07:32:46
how about i add Ulis to Hawks?

17 Apr 2018 19:10:13
@jdp knight’s contract is thru 19-20.

15 Apr 2018 03:32:24
Atlanta get Gasol(buyout), Brandon Paul, and the 2019 Sacramento 1st

The Clippers get Ojeleye, Nader, Nader, Mills, White and the Spurs 18 1st plus 12 million in Savings

The Celtics get Leonard

The Spurs get Jordan, Williams, Tatum, Morris, and Schroeder

Spurs line up

Schroeder/Murray/Parker
Green/Williams/ Ginobli
Tatum/Gay/Anderson
Aldridge/Morris
Jordan/lauvergne

15 Apr 2018 06:45:33
rkenne_16 seem good trade for spurs but sound bad trade to clippers.

15 Apr 2018 18:14:29
I don't think Tatum, an expiring Morris, and a top 10 1st round pick is enough for Leonard.

14 Apr 2018 22:59:16
Hawks - Knicks

Hawks gets:
9th pick (Knicks)
2020 2nd rd pick (Hornets)
Noah

Knicks gets:
19th (Timberwolves)
30th (Rockets)
2019 1st rd pick (Cavs)

Hawks gets another lottery pick and take on Noah's final two year salary.

Knicks move back in the draft, get another first this year and get more cap space this summer.

15 Apr 2018 01:10:14
Take the future 1st out and swap the 30th for a 2nd and it's not bad.

15 Apr 2018 01:48:40
Hawks giving up too much value to take back Noahs guaranteed $38 million. Not even close.

15 Apr 2018 04:11:19
Y would knicks do this unless the swap noah for their center.

12 Apr 2018 16:48:47
ATL: Bazemore + 1st rd pick MIN

for

MIN: Wiggins.

12 Apr 2018 18:17:55
Salaries don't match. Before or after Wiggins 24 mil kicks in.

12 Apr 2018 18:59:24
Salaries don't have to matchif you have room to absorb a contract. Even so, bazemores 19m + pick apx 2m is within the 120%.

12 Apr 2018 19:16:35
My mistake, It would work if after their next season deals kick in. ATL falls way below cap. (70m) Their salaries are aprox. 6m apart after Wiggins, and Bazemore deals kick in, but because ATL is taking in more it wouldn't be a problem. Gain an exception. ATL essentially draft for MIN. Interesting. Good way for MIN to move on from Wigs if that's their plan.

12 Apr 2018 19:21:17
MIN would get the exception.

12 Apr 2018 19:56:37
I think it takes a little more.

12 Apr 2018 20:30:59
Atlanta should trow in a little extra.

13 Apr 2018 01:02:19
How about Atlanta keep the pick, and do Wiggins for Bazemore and Prince?

Rumor had it Atlanta was willing to move Prince at the deadline.

Instead of getting a first and drafting another rookie, they get guy who can help now. Butler, Bazemore, and Prince would be a pretty good defensive group on the wing, with some versatility with Prince able to play PF as well. Then, with their 1st from OKC, they can draft either a combo guard or 3 point shooter.

13 Apr 2018 04:26:04
I like it. Minnesota gets a well-rounded wing and a mid-first pick. Atlanta gets a solid scorer to build around.

13 Apr 2018 05:34:33
Prince would be ideal for MIN defensively.

10 Apr 2018 22:02:02
The Hawks get Jr Smith(buyout), Korver, Zizic, the Cavs 2021 and 2023

Give up Bazemoore and Schroeder


The Nuggets get Love, Gobert, Schroeder, Sefolosha, and Epke

Give up Millsapp, Jokic, Harris, Plumlee, and Faried

06 Apr 2018 06:18:44
I'm confused I don't know whether to check the believable, or unbelievable box. The heading starts out: CAV's offseason unrealistic. Altman would be GM of the decade. Comparable to hitting the lottery twice in a month. Especially if the draftee's pan out.

06 Apr 2018 09:42:58
Basically he saying this his Cavs pipe dream. I feel bad for his son, but Lebron does not want to play for this owner beyond this yr, unfortunately for us Knicks fans he probably hates Dolan more than us Knicks fans. He could join the Lakers potentially.

06 Apr 2018 13:49:33
You’re a Knicks fan? Why are your trades so awful for the Knicks then?

06 Apr 2018 13:53:28
This Cavs/ Spurs deal has been posted before, and it has not become any more believable now than it was a couple of days ago. Again, Clarkson, bad (not horrible) contract, Zizic and Osman, good but not great prospects, and pick 7, nice, but not enough to entice the Spurs to make the deal based on the players included.

06 Apr 2018 14:33:38
J R Smith and Korver don't get you picks. You might have to give picks to get rid of them.

06 Apr 2018 16:34:58
Triangle O, that is pretty funny. I have seen this trade 3 times minimum already, maybe 4.

02 Apr 2018 19:34:40
Miami-pick 30,George hill,Ante Zizic

Atlanta-Tristan Thompson, 2 2nds,Jordan Mickey

Cavs-Hassan Whiteside

02 Apr 2018 20:09:29
Where is the pick coming from? The Cavs don't have a 2nd 1st this year. They traded it to the Lakers. I think Miami could do better and I just don't see it for Atlanta. I also don't see Hill is expendable right now for the Cavs. He's one of the few good defenders for the Cavs and they really don't have another pg that can play starting minutes at point. Clarkson can play some back up minutes at point, but you can really depend on him to create for other players. He's more of a sg than pg and while Calderon has given them solid minutes, he's a million years old. Maybe, they could use the Brooklyn pick on Young, Sexton, or Gilgeous-Alexander, but if Lebron is back I'm not sure you can count on one of those guys to come in and start. Plus, young is really the only one that can shoot and play next to Lebron, but he's also a guy that you have to protect on defense. Even with Whiteside, I'm not sure the Cavs can really do that.

02 Apr 2018 20:58:47
The pick 30 is coming from Atlanta.

02 Apr 2018 21:37:36
I don't see them giving up a 1st for Tristan. He's overpayed and has been falling off the last year and a half.

03 Apr 2018 02:03:06
Hill Thompson 4th for whiteside.

01 Apr 2018 13:43:35
Phoe: Schroder

Atl: B Knight+ Chriss+ 1rnd pick Miami 2018

01 Apr 2018 13:57:07
I like the concept for both teams, but if I'm Atlanta, I probably push for either Warren instead of Chriss or Knight to be out of the deal. Maybe they could find middle forums at Dudley or Chandler's expiring deals instead.

01 Apr 2018 14:58:19
Warren would be a good fit for Atlanta, but i'm not sure you can trade a player that have signed an extention.

01 Apr 2018 15:47:24
Maybe it's different once the extension kicks in, but I know players can be traded if they signed an extension and it hasn't kicked in yet. That's what the poinson pill provision is relating to. I would assume as long as they don't actually hit the market, you can still trade them.

30 Mar 2018 14:01:38
ATL looks like they are getting hosed. Two point guards to CHA?

30 Mar 2018 14:46:37
The Cavs should pass on that. A lottery pick, a 2nd 1st, an allstar, and a good player in Hill for Kemba and 2 guys on fairly bad contracts seems like an overpay.

30 Mar 2018 16:08:14
Hill contract is like worse Noah contract, love's emotions l
Is messing with his physical health. For 2 expiring contract is a gift. I would we send HILL atl. And make Cleveland keep Thompson.

30 Mar 2018 17:21:10
Hill is an expiring contract next year.

30 Mar 2018 23:26:11
Shizzee with another awesome reply! Bro Knicks get Noah till his contract is over or they buy him out! He’s not being traded and nobody has a more horrific front office so you probably won't even buy him out, quit adding him in trades unless it’s unicorn, Noah for devin Harris that’s the max you’re getting.

As much as I would trade Ross for him, salaries aren't close.

24 Mar 2018 13:14:59
No thanks on the Frank for T-Ross deal, and Barton is getting more than that.

24 Mar 2018 14:37:17
Triangle, I'm not sure Barton gets much more than that given the climate this offseason. I just saw something saying 5 teams will have cap space. I'm not sure how correct it is, but their will definitely be less than 10 teams and most of them are the rebuilding teams. They aren't going to pay a 27 year old big money and that leaves the MLE for him in free agency.

I do agree trading Ntilikina doesn't make sense here though.

Indy: Harkless+Schroder

Portland:/

Atlanta: Jefferson+ 1rnd pick Indy+1rnd pick Portland

22 Mar 2018 12:06:39
/ is a solid player, Portland may need to give up more

22 Mar 2018 13:12:42
They're over the cap, they want to give up more.

22 Mar 2018 13:42:14
Of the 37 mil mistake POR made, Harkless is the best value. Maybe if it was M. Leonard. He is a starter in POR. He's shooting 38% from 3 this season. The way he's been playing for the last 12 he's worth his 10 mil salary.

22 Mar 2018 15:48:44
Well, I was just looking for a bad contract. Leonard is fine too. He can be a good backup for Sabonis
Indy can sign Reddick to a 20M 2y contract (10M a year)

Indy: Sabonis/ Leonard
PF: Turner/ Leaf
SF:Bogdanovic/ L Stephenson
SG: Oladipo/ Reddick
PG:Schroder/ C Joseph.

23 Mar 2018 18:17:42
Watching Harkless the last two months, I wouldn’t give up a first to unload him. He’s not worth the money he’s paid, but he’s not a non factor like Leonard is. Also, Portland can’t afford to give away wings, they’re already incredibly thin there.

18 Mar 2018 15:45:31
If Atlanta, Orlando, Sacramento or Cleveland (assuming Lebron walks) lands the 1st overall.

The Celtics trade the Boston 2018 pick, the Sacramento pick, the Memphis pick, and the Clippers pick for the 1st overall and draft Ayton

18 Mar 2018 20:11:26
Ainge might do that. The MEM, LAC picks have a window of conveying, so this might be a good idea. I like the spacing for adding talent the SAC pick gives BOS though by being next season. How much of a gambler is Ainge, and how much does he like the crop of draftee's this season. There's good talent on the cheap at 27-or better this season.

18 Mar 2018 20:16:33
I was mistaken, The MEM conveys eventually no matter what, so 3 first's guaranteed for 1, #1 overall? Nah. Ainge wouldn't do that probably.

18 Mar 2018 21:04:16
The only pick that's guaranteed to be in the lottery is the Sacramento pick. The Clippers pick at best is in the late lottery and at worst would be in the mid 20s. The same could be said for Memphis and Boston's pick will be late. Ayton could be the final piece they need to truly compete for a title. Plus, there is little doubt that Ayton can do it on the offensive end. His defense needs to improve and Stevens is a coach that can help him do that and the Celtics' defensive culture should do a lot towards him buying in.

19 Mar 2018 00:10:24
I bet BOS would take Bagley over Ayton. It doesn't matter, Ainge isn't falling for his own 1 pick for 2 trick anyway. Let alone 3, possibly 4 for 1. Seems unlikely anyway.

19 Mar 2018 03:18:58
Lottery-shmottery. 3-1sts, and 1 maybe 1st, for 1, #1 overall is a ridiculous price to pay. Ainge pulls that trick on others, not on himself. Draft Bamba, or Bagley, or Carter jr. If defense, and PF/ C is the need of BOS, why a project? I think Ayton is a good player/ young prospect, but maybe a bit hyped kinda like T. Young. Ayton is definitely not Embid-like. #1 also comes with a 10 mil/ per price tag. BOS would likely have to let go of Smart, or others. The timing of next seasons SAC pick gives them another full season, and this year's playoffs to analyze talent, and formulate a hypothesis on who to keep, let go, and draft. This years pick is just bonus. Who knows LAC could make playoffs, and they get another @ #15.

Jorga, the only pick that Boston will have is their own this year unless they get extremely lucky in the lottery. I just think it would take that kind of haul for a team to move the first and not end up still being in the top 5.

I just don't see Bagley being the guy they take. They need a bigger center that could be a good defender and rim protector in the NBA. I'm just not sure Bagley has the tools to really be that in the NBA. I also think Ayton's upside is just so much higher than Bagley's. Bagley has the smoother game right now, but Ayton is the better athlete and has much better size.

Also, the Celtics have 7 or 8 players on their roster that are under 25 plus they have Horford, Gordon, and Irving that are all part of their long term plans. Will they even have space or minutes to develop 5 draft picks in the next 2 year? Especially, their own picks that will be late in the first and if the Clippers or Memphis picks land later in the draft. I think at some point they're going to have to package some of them to move up in the draft or in a trade for a super star. Their roster just doesn't have much room.

I like Ayton going to the Celtics for that package, but i agree with Jorga that Ainge wouldn't do that.

If he trade those picks, it's for a star.

Lillard has a much higher chance of going to CLE, and joining Lebron there, than James playing in POR. James is a big city/ big market guy. It's one of the main reasons L. A. Or NY has a shot at him even though all 4 teams in those city's are in rebuild mode.

It'll take a lot more than Zach Collins to dump Evan Turner's contract. No one wants to pay him $17-18M/ season. I like the second trade with Dallas. Only slight change is to put a protection on the 1st. And why in the world would Cleveland take Moe Harkless for LeBron. I think the Cavaliers rather lose LeBron for nothing than to take back Harkless.

Why would the Cavs want Harkless? They'll already be near the luxury tax if they resign Hood and Harkless makes no sense during a rebuild. He's not all that young, doesn't have much upside, isn't a star player, and has little secondary trade value. Plus, if the Cavs would need to get some serious assets back for them to be willing to help a team acquire Lebron.

There's a lot wrong with this suggestion, especially when you said that Zach Collins brother plays in the NBA. because he doesn't.
