Cavs get Teague, Korver, #1 pick
76ers get Irving, #21 pick
Give: Okafor, McConnell #1 and #26 pick
Hawks get Okafor, McConnell, #26 pick
Give: Teague, Korver, #21 pick.
29 Apr 2016 16:42:47
The only way the Cavs would do this is if they have another deal in place to send that number 1 pick along with someone else to get a better player. They are not in the mind set to be getting younger or not ready players.
29 Apr 2016 17:00:40
Irving for Okafor and #1? Philly is getting killed here.
29 Apr 2016 17:15:46
What if Cavs then trade #1 and Shumpert to Bucks for Middleton and #10.
29 Apr 2016 05:30:12
I think its time for the CLippers to make a change. Its been 6 years and the Blake Griffin era isn't working out. I think he could be a great trade piece for them going into this off season.
Clippers get: Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver, Thabo Sefolosha, Miles Plumlee and a 2018 First Round Pick (ATL)
Hawks Get: Greg Monroe, Michael Carter-Williams, Jeff Green, Wesley Johnson, 2016 First Round Pick (MIL-Projected #10), a 2018 First Round Pick (MIL) and 2016 First Round Pick (LAC-Projected #25)
Milwaukee Bucks Get: Blake Griffin, Jeff Teague and Branden Dawson
Clippers - Sign Ryan Anderson 4 years, $40 Million and Sign Joe Johnson 2 years, $18.5 Million. Paul Pierce retires
PG: Chris Paul - Austin Rivers - Pablo Prigioni
SG: JJ Redick - Jamal Crawford - CJ Wilcox
SF: Joe Johnson - Kyle Korver - Thabo Sefolosha
PF: Paul Millsap - Ryan Anderson - Luc Mbah ah Moute
C: DeAndre Jordan - Miles Plumlee - Cole Aldrich
Hawks - Draft C Skal Labissiere (Pick #10), SG Milachi Richardson (Pick #21) and SF Taurean Prince (Pick #25)
PG: Dennis Schroder - Michael Carter-Williams - Kirk Hinrich
SG: Kent Bazemore - Milachi Richardson - Lamar Patterson
SF: Taurean Prince - Tim Hardaway Jr.
PF: Greg Monroe - Mike Scott - Kris Humphries - Mike Muscala
C: Al Horford - Tiago Splitter - Skal Labissiere
Bucks - Sign Jordan Hill 2 years, $12 Million
PG: Jeff Teague - Grevis Vasquez - Tyler Ennis - Jerryd Bayless
SG: Khris Middleton - OJ Mayo - Rashad Vaughn
SF: Giannis Antetokounmpo - Wesley Johnson - Damien Inglis
PF: Jabari Parker - Jordan Hill - Jeff Green - Branden Dawson
C: Blake Griffin - John Henson
Clippers - Put together a great win now, more balanced roster that could win them A LOT of games in the next 2 years before some of the older guys start to drop off.
Hawks - Get to half reset their roster. A lot of young guys and future picks added to help bring some longevity to their potential success.
Bucks - Start a new era of small ball with Blake Griffin at the Center.
****Assume that all free agents re-sign on these teams.
29 Apr 2016 12:40:13
Bucks don't do that, they need to keep there picks, not give them away
29 Apr 2016 14:54:31
I like this deal for the bucks, not sure the Clippers should trade for older players.
28 Apr 2016 21:27:42
LAC gets Millsap, Korver, Sefolosha
PHI gets Griffin, Schroder
ATL gets Noel, #1
28 Apr 2016 22:00:28
hawks pf from fa? how about noel? derozan not going to sixers and they don't give enough for griffin.
29 Apr 2016 14:00:08
I kinda like this deal for all teams. Clipper move on without taking to big of a step back. Hawks get a quick rebuild. Sixers get a star they need and a pg who I believe is a back up.
29 Apr 2016 16:06:45
If you watched the Celtics Hawks series you would see that Schroder is not a back up at all. He has played great. The only thing that hasn't been good this series is his emotions.
29 Apr 2016 16:55:39
Larry I watched that series and Schroeder is nothing compared to Teague. Schroeder is a young athletic guard. But he lacks any kind of star power right now.
28 Apr 2016 21:19:06
If the Hawks blow it up:
Korver, Horford (s&t) for #5, Pec, Muhammed
Is the Hawks feel they will lose Horford, they could take on Pecovic's terrible contract and gain an early pick.
Minnesota drops a terrible contact, and gets an all star center to play with Townes and one of the best shooters in the league to spread the floor for Wiggins and Rubio.
Rubio/ Korver/ Wiggins/ Townes/ Horford.
28 Apr 2016 22:01:23
wolves can just sign horford no need to trade #5 just to get rid of pek.

Toronto gets absolutely screwed. Why not just sign horford and not trade their best player (and a top 15 player in the NBA)?
Horford would be an amazing fit in Toronto though, it might put them over the cavs in the east.
28 Apr 2016 19:30:05
Demar Derozan is Toronto's best player. Lowry is out of sink during big games.
28 Apr 2016 20:16:47
Ok, they trade their second best player (who will be second team all NBA this year most likely) for nothing then? Still idiotic for Toronto. Lowry and Ross>>>>>>>Teague and stauskas.

Correction to above:
SAC does not own their own 2nd round this year.
28 Apr 2016 06:02:45
Cavs get Teague, Splitter, #1 pick
76ers get Irving, #21 pick
Give: Okafor, #1 and #26 pick
Hawks get Okafor, McConnell, #26 pick
Give: Teague, Splitter, #21 pick.
28 Apr 2016 07:20:15
Teague and Korver and 1st and you got a deal. Kyrie is a shooter and spreads the floor and the Cavs need a shooter in return I would think. Not splitter we don't want him. Teague Korver and Simmons would be awesome.
28 Apr 2016 07:25:04
Cavs draft Ingram, they don't need Simmons and have 3 pf, actually four. Trade love and shumpert for cousins.
Teague/ delly/ mo
Ingram/ Richardson/ james
Hawks keep splitter and give up something with value to get okafor along with a one year rental in teague.
28 Apr 2016 12:41:47
Not getting Cousins for Love and Shump. Why would you want Ingram with LBJ in tow? You take Simmons and try to move Love for backcourt and Center help ie. To the C's for Bradley, Sully (S&T) and either a couple of picks or another asset. Leaves the Cavs with a nice blend of youth and veteran presence.
28 Apr 2016 14:08:24
Sixers pass. Irving isn't worth a number one and okafor. Max would be number one and Noel.
28 Apr 2016 17:10:19
Tre, if Embiid is actually able to play, I really think Okafor and Embiid won't work together. Noel is versatile enough to guard a 4. Embiid will be able to handle the offensive load. I think Okafor provides the greatest return and is expendable. IF Embiid is healthy and can have an NBA career.
28 Apr 2016 17:23:44
Irving is a beast and worth any two assets the sixers got because he already a proven star but had flaws but can get better. Cavs wouldn't wanna help Boston get better. I think love is better then cousins in some ways. Cousins is doing better but number one option and can't take kings to playoffs. He got help and not hurt. Love take way less shots but is having more success as a team player.
28 Apr 2016 19:07:12
50 year old lakersfan with massive knowledge. have you already forgotten about Kevin Love from 2 years ago? Similar stats as Cousins, not as good defense. And his teams were never even close to accomplishing a thing. Guess you only remember the NBA from 50 years ago and this year. That whole 3-7 years ago span, well that must be missing. Uh oh.
28 Apr 2016 21:34:09
Thing was love always got hurt, you remember now. They were doing great one year and love and rubio got hurt.
28 Apr 2016 23:00:42
He played for seasons at least 60 games. 3 over 70 and did nothing.
29 Apr 2016 04:39:13
If love wasn't hurt someone was hurt plus barely had talent on wolves Derrick Williams bust. Cousins got rondo and gay better then anyone love played with on wolves no reason not to make playoffs. They all were healthy.
28 Apr 2016 02:37:05
Try this Knicks move
Suns get Griffin Calderon-exp
Clippers get Melo Grant
Jazz get Knight
Knicks get Burke Burks W. Johnson Chandler 13th 28th 33rd 34th
Chandler to Lakers for cap space
Burks Burke 13th for Teague 43rd 54th
Hawks get good value for Teague
Suns take risk with Griffin and keep top pick
Clippers get a healthier star than Griffin
Lakers get a defense center for nothing
Knicks create cap space, get picks and their best pg since Frazier.
Knicks pay Durant 111mil 4yr Batum 4yr 92mil
Teague/ Ulis-34th/ PaytonII-54th
Batum/ Brogdon-43rd/ Wroten
Durant/ W. Johnson/ Antetokounmpo
Porzingis/ O'Quinn/ T. Maker-25th
Lopez/ Hernangomez/ Hammons-33rd.
28 Apr 2016 13:09:57
You honestly think Durant will sign with the Knicks without Melo? Why not just try to trade Melo for Griffin straight up?
28 Apr 2016 23:39:55
Knicks set at center pf, Griffin does not fit, Durant with Batum Teague Porzingis and Lopez starting Hella Yeah Durant will join and not take paycut. Dangerous young deep bench.
27 Apr 2016 22:27:05
Lakers-Cavs-Hawks-76ers idea revised
LAL: K Irving, N Noel
CLE: J Teague, 2016 LAL 1st (#2-3)
ATL: L Williams, Jerami Grant, 2016 OKC 1st rd (#26) via PHI,
PHI: D Russell, 2016 LAL 2nd rd (#32)
27 Apr 2016 23:26:53
Terrible for Atlanta.
28 Apr 2016 00:11:36
Philly take Williams and Covington to atl.
28 Apr 2016 00:24:20
So wait. Sixers give up Noel and okc pick and Jeremy grant. and they get Russel?! Doesn't seem likely to me.
28 Apr 2016 01:11:34
This is better than the other trade for Atlanta and Philly
Atlanta gave Teague and got Lou Williams, Ant Brown, and #32 pick in other trade
Philly gave Noel, and the LAL 1st rd and got Russell in the other trade.
So what if the 76ers give Okafor instead of Noel then?
28 Apr 2016 04:00:22
It's essentially Russell for Noel and the okc pick which isn't good. Grant has no value. It's about fair value for the sixers, just don't think they want to bring Russell on with the immaturity issues for such a young team.
27 Apr 2016 17:52:51
nyk sign deron williams 3yr/ 27m
knicks horford 4yr/ 82m
hawks lopez thomas early
27 Apr 2016 18:50:52
Horford deal isn't bad, but I don't see Williams leaving Dallas, and if he does, it will be for more than that.

lakers sixers hawks
lakers get teague #1pick covington
sixers get russell #2pick
hawks get noel young
27 Apr 2016 18:07:07
You have the Sixers moving from 1 to 2 and trading Noel and Covington for Russell.
Do you value Russell so highly that he's worth that much more than Noel and Covington AND flipping 1 for 2?
27 Apr 2016 18:08:04
So Sixers give up the number one pick. And Noel . And Covington.
And get Russel who has been pretty rough so far and the number two pick?
Honestly I think you could argue that Noel is better then Russel so far And obviously the number one is better then the number 2.
27 Apr 2016 19:10:26
Noel know where near Russell. Russell going to be a beast in a few years.
27 Apr 2016 20:58:08
So the trade is based off where he could be in a few years? With Noel, the sixers know they have a reliable 10/ 10 and a great, versatile defender. They aren't giving that up AND moving back in the draft for Russell who is a wild card and went down in value through his play and most importantly, his immaturity issues. The sixers have enough youth and immaturity to deal with, no need to bring in another potential problem.
27 Apr 2016 21:24:19
Tre, I think you could argue that its easier to get Russell than Noel since you have to draft very high to get a big but you can find smalls later.
And given that the Lakers have smalls but no center, then this becomes a trade of need, not necessarily a trade of talent. Value is different than talent.
Would the Lakers value an athletic C that they don't have for a guard that they do have in excess? Remember last year they drafted Russell but thought they had a FA big man in the bag. That failed. If they bomb again this year, they may consider a deal that revolves around a Sixers C for Russell.
27 Apr 2016 22:05:37
Considering that most people can't decide between the top 2 in the draft, I don't think there's a reason to confuse this trade and include those picks. Then it seems a lot more likely.
And no, no one thinks Noel has as much upside (or downside) as Russell. They're pretty similar, Noel is probably an ok starter or great bench big, not a ton of room for growth that I've seen. Russell could be anywhere from Dion waiters to demar derozan, huge range of possibilities.
27 Apr 2016 22:19:06
Russell has shown very little and is closer to a bust than a beast. Face it the Lakers made the wrong call.
27 Apr 2016 23:27:38
You may think they made the "wrong call" but say that in 3 years. Russell wasn't going to average 20 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in his rookie season. We all knew that.
28 Apr 2016 02:12:29
If Russell was the main option and not kobe taking up lots of shots and shooting low percentage then Russell would been way better. But the kid can shoot let's judge him playing without Kobe.
28 Apr 2016 03:57:33
I think it's okay cause I think noel is great but they have to many Bigs and should go with okafor and embiid. Russell is the best PG under the agree 21 so this would be great for Philly. Plus it's a toss up but Philly need Ingram more than Simmons.

27 Apr 2016 10:08:27
Remember your dealing with (DA) Boston not trading smart not sure if melo fits our plans Durant, Davis, Marc gasol, butler, love, cousins, PG13 that's the players we are chasing other wise stay the course and hope we get lucky in the draft anyway the next 3 years is between OKC, GWS, SPURS, CAVS so happy to make the playoffs again.
27 Apr 2016 10:43:41
Hawks keep milsap and get smart with clippers getting number one pick. plus hawks get two late first from philly. believe that's fair. Then hawks build through free agency around milsap and smart and others. Then clippers should trade Paul to Cleveland who will give up Irving who can grow worth Simmons. Unless they could get something better but who really going to gut there team for a potential rental. Lakers got best piece for them number two pick along with Russell and Williams. Lakers get doc, rivers and Paul. Lakers now have great pg, coach and cap space To sign free agents. Would stretch young or trade him and pick 32 to cavs for trade exemption or for a later pick to a team want a player they need at 32.
Then clippers would have russell, JJ red, Ingram, Simmons, Jordan plus others.
27 Apr 2016 12:05:21
I don't think Philly is passing on Simmons for one year of Jeff Teague.
27 Apr 2016 12:36:17
Philly wouldn't do it for sure, this is a 2 guys draft. They wouldn't pass on either Simmons or Ingram for a rental in a year they know they aren't ready to contend.
27 Apr 2016 13:16:39
Huge perceived drop off from top two.
From my perspective, the absolute worst place to be in this draft is #3- which is exactly where the Sixers will land, again. At #3 there's no difference maker and its too high to draft a guard.
Hinkie's plan will work in reverse. The Sixers will have to give up an asset to move into the top 2. Or they'll have to reach to take a guard.
27 Apr 2016 13:40:32
Not a fan of it for the Sixers at all. Unless Simmons or Ingram fall to thre.
27 Apr 2016 19:23:32
Sixers should get Brooklyn 2017 from Boston.
26 Apr 2016 21:41:18
Lakers need to hire either Walton or Messina as their new HC.
Saw a rumor online that sent Irving to the Lakers for their top 3 pick and maybe Clarkson. Anybody think Lakers could get Irving?
I don't see Cavs trading him for a pick who'll they'll have to develop when they are in win now mode. Only way I see this happening is if a 3rd team got involved to send a more win-now PG to Cavs.
LAL: K Irving, N Noel, and our own pick back from PHI
CLE: J Teague, 2016 Lakers 1st, 2017 Lakers 2nd rd
ATL: L Williams, A Brown, and Lakers 2nd rd (#32)
PHI: D Russell.
26 Apr 2016 23:00:59
Philly is not trading noel and the Lakers pick for Russell. They'd just take dunn.
26 Apr 2016 23:47:47
I know that deal won't happen. Clarkson is a sign and trade and they can't happen during the draft.
26 Apr 2016 23:51:02
Close but I don't think Hawks or 76ers do it.
27 Apr 2016 00:07:35
Atlanta get something else Nance would be okay.
27 Apr 2016 00:12:07
So the Lakers get Kyrie Irving and Nerlens Noel for russell, a few bench guys and a couple second rounders? Ok. Are pigs flying?
27 Apr 2016 00:20:23
Everyone but LAL say no.
27 Apr 2016 01:17:22
So the Lakers get the 2 best players and what could be a top 5 pick for a pick they might not even have in a month and a rookie who did not live up to expectations.
And this is terrible for Atlanta.
27 Apr 2016 01:29:20
Lots of critics, no other proposals.
Do you think Irving to LAL is possible? If so, give me a scenario that it does.
27 Apr 2016 01:48:09
The expectation for realistic fans were almost the stats for Russell as they ended up. Many people agreed it would take him 2-3 years to make an impact at the least, he was a good college player for 1 season. If he was in any other city that isn't a big market he would not get this much hate.
27 Apr 2016 02:09:52
Only way Lakers get Irving is Russell and the Lakers pick this year if is in the top 2.
27 Apr 2016 12:37:45
I think almost all will say, lakers just get back way way too much here. Also, he is in la. So he gets the criticism. Oh well.
To answer the bigger question, there is no chance the lakers get Irving. First, cavs are win now, and there is nothing on the lakers that would make the cavs better while losing Irving. So additional team/ s will be involved. That makes it far harder and the lakers have to give up a bunch of assets, not merely the a good rookie, and inefficient role player a 1st they cabt trade and a second. I don't even understand what you were talking about with the picks. Lakers get one back. Then trade this year. Then trade next year. It wasn't clear.
But flat out, the return the lakers get here is beyond foolishly optimistic. It's just absurd. Sorry.
27 Apr 2016 13:25:30
I like how Lakers' 2nd round picks are being thrown around as if to balance this out.
27 Apr 2016 13:44:06

Tre. the knicks would just do straight up irving for melo. Absolutely no interest in bringing Russell's immaturity into what will be a quasi-rebuild.
27 Apr 2016 14:50:00
Considering I said nothing about the trade being fair or not, which I don't think is fair, just stating my opinion.
26 Apr 2016 19:37:36
TOR/ PHI/ ATL
TOR get Al Horford (sign and trade)
PHI get Jeff Teague and Terrence Ross
ATL get Nerlens Noel and Patrick Patterson
26 Apr 2016 20:53:08
Sixers would take it. Teague and Ross gives us a mixed return of young and old.
27 Apr 2016 13:27:37
Agree with Tre. Getting those two would also make it more attractive to acquire a FA. Add in a top pick and Saric (and, gulp, Embiid) and its not terribly awful.
27 Apr 2016 14:07:33
I like it all the way around.
27 Apr 2016 14:24:08
No offense philly, but even with those, I think the sixers are 2-3 years away from being an attractive landing site for upper level FAs. They absolutely have potential, but its a few years away from being at all competitive. Even if they snag simmons, you're looking at what. Teague, Whoever the SG this time around, Simmons, Okafor, Embiid? that's basically a college team of juniors, led by teague. Not being mean, just they are SUPER young. Vets don't have an interest in playing with people that young because they just can't win. And the top tier FAs want championships.
I really think things are moving in the right direction. I also wouldn't do it because Teague is an expiring next year, doubt he stays for the rebuild. If Embiid is definitely healthy, and the sixers can rely on him, I personally would go hard after Schroder. Kid is super young and super talented. I get it, he's a "backup", but if you extend his stats out like a starter, he's a beast. 9th in the league in assists per 48 for PGs, 12th in scoring per 48, 13 in rebounds, even top 20 in steals. All this and barely 22. I think he is the long term solution for the sixers at PG. Just my feeling.
27 Apr 2016 15:32:02
Yeah but see the thing with Schroder is that the Hawks see and think the same thing. Hence why they wanted to and probably will look to trade Teague this offseason.
27 Apr 2016 21:34:26
The only hope for a FA is that Colangelo is a real GM and the team first shows they are serious by acquiring via trade established NBA players. I think most of the league saw that the young guys had no chance without NBA players around them.
Also, Colangelo has had good relations with players and agents from his time in Phoenix and Toronto. That's why Derozen would be my target.
Sixers need to keep Landry and Smith. Add a couple more NBA players via trade like noted above, then bring in that one FA to match up with who the traded for.
But you're right. They have way too many kids on the team. Saric, Noel, Okafor, Stauskas, Covington, Embiid, 1st round pick, maybe Lakers pick, two picks in the 20s, Holmes- that's 11 guys that weren't playing in the league 2 years ago. At least 3-4 of that group has to go just to balance the experience.
26 Apr 2016 18:09:31
I like one of the trades i read earlier involving CHI and UTA centering around Butler and Gobert i think both teams will benefit from that. A Hayward-Butler combo would be a defensive nightmare for opposing teams and adding a very good PG will make them a serious contender. I'll make my version of that.
UTA/ CHI/ ATL
UTA get Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson
CHI get Alec Burks, Rudy Gobert and 1st round pick from UTA and ATL
ATL get Rodney Hood and Trey Burke
26 Apr 2016 19:02:15
I just don't see the Jazz giving up Gobert. He is turning into one of the best and more reliable defensive centers in the league. I could see them trading Favors before they trade Gobert because of the emergence of Lyles this season.
I understand that Butler is a great player and a star and exactly what the Jazz need to get over the hump but I think they could do that without giving up Gobert and one of Hood or Burkes.

I agree with Larry. There's only MAYBE a hand full of players the Jazz would trade Gobert for.

DEN/ MIN/ ATL
DEN get 5th pick, 21st pick and Nemanja Bjelica
MIN get Paul Millsap
ATL get Shabbaz Muhammad, Kenneth Faried and 7th pick
MIN then sign Courtney Lee 3yr/ 24mil
sign Luol Deng 3yr/ 30mil (he knows Thibs)
convince Pekovic to retire
MIN would be formidable i think
Pg Rubio/ LaVine/ Jones
Sg Wiggins/ Lee/ LaVine
Sf Deng/ Wiggins
Pf Millsap/ Payne
Ce Towns/ Dieng
- a couple of more FA's to complete that roster.

"convince Pekovic to retire" - yeah, just walk away from tens of millions.

Do you even watch the Timberwolves?

Tell me what's wrong carl.

Lavine should never be considered for the PG position. The Wolves don't need more wings, they need a quality big, which they get in Millsap, but they still have no depth after Dieng. Lavine would still start on that team.
My biggest problem with this though is that Pek won't retire, and the moves you make put Wolves in a tough spot financially in the future.

Don't want to give up 5th pick for a player who won't grow with Minnesota's youth. Millsap will be 31 this year. By the time Towns and Wiggins reach their prime, he will be close to retirement. So instead if having a young talent drafted or traded for, we would have another hole to fill.
