Pf. K. Love/ P. Jones/ E. Murphy
Sf. L. James/ S. Marion/ J. Jones
C. S. Ibaka/ B. Haywood/ D. Powell

I don't see them trading with one another

Minnesota's next week

NY Knicks get; K. Martin, Chase Budinger, J.J. Barea from minn. and Non-guarenteed contracts from Cleveland in B. Haywood, J. Lucas III, and E. Murphy

Minnesota gets; A. Wiggins, A. Bennett, and protected 1st from Cleveland and A. Stoudemire and T. Hardaway Jr. from NY

Cleveland gets; Kevin Love and Ronnie Turiaf from Minn.

Better than reported love trade with just Cleveland
Minn gets Hardaway Jr. and NY gets 9 mill in cap space plus 3 decent players

Then Minnesota trades Shved and L.R Mbah a Moute and 1st round pick to Philly for T. Young, or trade Shved, L.R. Mbah, and A. Stoudemire plus the Miami 1st from Cleveland and Protected 2017 1st for Young

i love Disney

Terrible. The Knicks would never do that. They would be stuck with Martin and Bareas bad contracts next offseason and they won't have a chance to get a star. Plus they trade Hardaway? Heck no


Barea is only signed through next year.

i love Disney

Why would the Knicks ever ever do that. Ignore also giving away thj, just taking those contracts on is horrible.




21 Aug 2014 19:06:17
From latest rumors in the cavs Sixers and wolves trade. Anthony Bennett goes to wolves. Sixers get shev, ma a bute and miamis first round pick next year for Thad young. No longer Bennett for Thad.




20 Aug 2014 04:04:01
New twist on Love to Cleveland

Cleveland gets; K. Love and Ronnie Turiaf

Minnesota gets; A. Wiggins, T. Young, JaVale McGee,2 second round picks from Denver and protected 1st rounder from Cleveland.

Philadelphia gets; A. Bennett, J.J. Barea, and L.R. Mbah a Mounte

Denver gets; C. Budinger, J. Lucas III, and E. Murphy

Works on ESPN trade machine if you replace Wiggins with T. Thompson. Machine will not let you trade Wiggins and salaries are about the same.

Why teams do it:
Cleveland gets Love and rim protector
Minnesota could be very strong defensively
Denver gets out of the luxury tax after releasing ungaranteed contracts
Philly gets potential in Bennett, plus 2 players they could get small return for at the trade deadline.

i love Disney

20 Aug 2014 05:44:59
I like it but Gorgui would have to play PF or the wolves would have to trade pek


Minnesota played Gorgui at PF in summer league.

i love Disney

Actually has something there for sure. But there's hardly ever a four team trade in the nba.


Philly doesn't do it without getting a 1DP.

Boy Howdie

Give the nuggets some of the picks, instead of all of then to the TWolves




19 Aug 2014 04:53:37
Final Cavs moves

Add a rim protector

Cavs get Okafor s&t

Suns get Ilyasova

Mil get Dellavedova plus future Cavs pick

Sign Ray Allen

Irving/Lucas III




19 Aug 2014 03:35:44

New York - Josh Smith
Defensive big man
Cleveland- Iman Shumpert
Need defense
Boston- Brandon Jennings, Dion Waiters, Bargnani
Young talent
Detroit- Rondo, Jeff Green
Actually small forward and star point guard


Rondo is a rental he will be a FA at the end of the year and will not resign with Detroit. So Detroit would not only lose Rondo, but Monroe, Smith and Jennings if they made this trade going into 2015 and Detroit is not a landing spot of FA. Detroit would rather have Early, Oly instead.




18 Aug 2014 17:23:40
Shawn Marion has committed this weekend to sign with the Cavaliers


He'll serve as an excellent backup to the King. If the Cavs can also sign Ray Allen, they'll suddenly find themselves possessing one of the deeper benches in the league.


His decision is basically on. WHO CAN I WIN A RING WITH.




18 Aug 2014 14:47:12


CLE get: Kanter

UTAH get: Waiters

pg. burke/burks
sg. waiters/exum
sf. hayward
pf. booker
c. favors


CLE get: Bargnani (exp), George Hill, Shumpert (exp), & Prigioni

NYK get: Anderson Varejao & Tristan Thompson

pg. calderon
sg. thj
sf. melo
pf. thompson
c. varejao

IND get: Jr Smith, Brendan Haywood, & Delladova

CLE signs: Ray Allen & Michael Beasley

pg. irving/hill/prigioni
sg. shumpert/allen/hill
sf. lbj/beasely
pf. love/bargnani
c. kanter/bargnani

hill, shumpert, and kanter add needed defense
hill and prigioni are solid back ups with playoff exp
bargnani skill sets similiar to love, so won't skip much of a beat while love rest.


LeBron is essentially the Cavs new GM and he loves Anderson Varejao, therefore I don't see him going anywhere.




18 Aug 2014 11:23:38

CLE get Andrew Bogut


GSW get Nerlens Noel , Dion Waiters , Thad Young


PHI get Harrison Barnes , David Lee , 1st from GS and CLE 2015



18 Aug 2014 12:17:15
Cavs will be button feeders for years to come.


Cleveland trades Dion Waiters for Andrew Bogut? Heck no they got to give up more than that (assets and salary). And this trade is terrible for GS. Noel is too raw, and they would do way better with Lee, Bogut, and Barnes. No way


Hahah gsw get way too much here. Bogut always injured. Lee over paid. Barnes unproven. Cavs and 76ers pass


I'm pretty sure this only helps the Cavs


^pizza Noel just missed the entire season.




18 Aug 2014 05:34:20

Min gets:
Russell Westbrook
Nick Collison
Steven Adams

Thunder get:
Ricky Rubio
Kevin Martin
Nikola pekovic

Minnesota gets an all star point guard and two solid big man to produce some bench points

Thunder get an pass first point guard who plays great defense and get a shooter and a starter who will become a Allstar center

Rubio/ Jackson
Martin/ lamb/ morrow
Durant/ jones/ Roberson
Ibaka/ mcGary
Pekovic/ perkins

Min: if kevin stays
Westbrook/ Williams
Brewer/ Lavine
Budinger/ Muhammad
Love/ Mbah A Moute
Dieng/ Adams

Min: if love goes via Cleveland
Westbrook/ Williams
Wiggins/ Lavine
Brewer/ Budinger/ Muhammad
Young/ collision
Dieng/ Adams


On no planet is that getting you Westbrook.


Two big, unwanted contracts along with a good young talent isn't going to land you a superstar combo guard along with two inexpensive effective role players. Awful trade.


Also, Rubio is a terrible defender, terrible.




18 Aug 2014 02:07:34
Bucks Cleveland



Lucas III (non- guaranteed)
2105 Cle 1st round pick (own will likely be 27-30)

Cleveland gets a better backup center
Bucks opens up playing time for Henson and Sanders

succeed and proceed

No one would give up a 1st for Zaza, ever.

SAS Champs 2014

2105 is a long time to wait for a first.


Least attractive trade I've seen




17 Aug 2014 08:26:14
Cavs get Iman Shumpert and Pablo Prigioni

Knicks get Dion Waiters

Cavs have enough people that can score. They need one more lock down wing defender. They also need depth at PG. Prigioni might be a better back up PG than Delladova

Knicks needs another explosive scorer next to Carmelo.


I could see that trade, but if it happened the Knicks would have to move J.R Smith, because otherwise there's not enough minutes to go around at the SG spot with Hardaway Jr. and now Waiters there.


Not nearly enough for Waiters. Better player on a rookie contract.


Good deal.

Cavs need to make a few little moves to secure their position as a definate NBA Championship contender.

Cavs Get: Larry Sanders, Iman Shumpert
Bucks Get: Anderson Varejao, Joe Harris, 2017 Round 1 Pick (CLE)
Knicks Get: Erik Murphy, 2019 Round 1 Pick (CLE)

Sign: Shawn Marion - 2 year, $5.5 Million contract

Waive: Dwight Powell

PG: Kyrie Irving - Matthew Dellavedova - John Lucas III
SG: Dion Waiters - Iman Shumpert - Mike Miller
SF: LeBron James - Shawn Marion - James Jones
PF: Kevin Love - Tristan Thompson - Malcolm Thomas
C: Larry Sanders - Brendan Haywood


Not trading varejao because he lure lebron to come back and james want him as teammate


Lol Vareajo sucks, he's definitely tradeable


LeBron didn't come ack to play with Varejao.




16 Aug 2014 15:19:18
2015 offseason trade


CLE: L. Sanders

MIL: B. Haywood, 1st rd. pick(from MEM), 1st rd. pick(from CLE)

Sanders will only have one year left before he is an UFA and Milwaukee will get as much value in return as they can for him. The Memphis pick might even be a lottery pick if the Grizzlies continue to regress and miss the playoffs.
Haywood has a unique contract that is worth 10.5 mil next year totally non-guaranteed which would be used to match salaries. Milwaukee would then just cut him with no penalty.
Cleveland would get the rim protector at Center that they covet. The Cavs would make the picks for Memphis and then deal them to get around the "Stepien rule".

2015-2016 Cavs lineup

PG: K. Irving/ M. Dellavadova
SG: D. Waiters/ J. Harris
SF: L. James/ M. Miller
PF: K. Love/ T. Thompson
C: L. Sanders/ A. Varejao


Sanders contract is longer than that.

SAS Champs 2014

Not a bad deal but yea Sanders has like 3 yrs left and Haywood's salary is like 2.5 million so this trade wouldn't work


If you read the post, it states that Haywood's contract is non-guaranteed for 10.5mil NEXT year so YES, the trade would work.




15 Aug 2014 20:03:40
If the league does indeed block the KLove trade to Cleveland, the Wolves should look to not trade Love but instead bring in reinforcements. They have lots of good young talent but the mix is not right.

This is thinking way outside the box. But. Why not target Russell Westbrook? They were teammates at UCLA and are both rumored to seek bigger markets should they eventually become UFAs. But would they if they were reunited?

For the Wolves, they'd get established talent and make a run at the terrifying western conference. But they'd appease Love and return to relevance.

For the Thunder, they balance the team, deepen the team, and put the ball in the hands of Durant more exclusively. Also, should Durant bolt for DC, they get young talent to rebuild.

Wolves get:

Thunder get:

Thoughts? Btw, I'm a thunder fan.


Better hope your Thunder brethren don't see this.


The thunder would probably reject any trade involving Westbrook, but I do think this would be a great trade for both teams. The problems are: does Rubio really think he's worth a max deal? Cause I can't see OKC paying that; and even with Westbrook, do the wolves have any chance at retaining love?


^ I have a feeling that if Minnesota acquired LeBron and in his prime MJ, Love would still want out.




15 Aug 2014 03:44:30
BOS: Brandon Bass PF & Keith Bogans SG


CLE: Brendan Haywood C, Dwight Powell PF & 2nd round pick

Boston does it to get younger & another pick while using amnesty on Haywood

Cavs do it to get a good mid-range shooter & can just let Bogans go of his non guaranteed contract


They would not be able to amnesty Haywood. Teams can only use 1 amnesty on a player who was under contract with that team before the new CBA was signed. Never could a team trade for a player then amnesty him.


Well they don't have to amnesty him, the trade would still work?


Haywood's contract is actually extremely valuable for the Cavs, because the way it's structured(he was previously amnestied) if the Cavs guarantee his contract for next season he will be set to make about 10 mil next year(while only making about 2 this year). This is huge for the Cavs, because they can use this large expiring contract with a draft pick or 2 to get another high level starter, or several valuable role players. CLE isn't trading Haywood this year. He's just to potentially valuable next offseason


Agree with the Haywood contract comment. Just to go further on it, the Cavs don't even have to guarantee the 10.5mil for next year. The 10.5mil is non-guaranteed so the team receiving him could just cut him after trading for him, making it even better than just an expiring contract.




11 Aug 2014 18:33:31
I think the timberwolves could have gotten more for Kevin by trading him to the suns.

Receive from cavs/sixers trade: wiggins, young, 1st
Trade: love, brewer, barea

Young/ Muhammad

Suns trade: Dragic, green 1st 2014 (was Tj warren)
Trade: klove brewer Martin

Use the 14 th pick to get Adrien Payne
Then trade for Thad young

Dragic/ Lavine
Green/ Budinger/ Muhammad
Young/ Payne
Pek/ Dieng




09 Aug 2014 15:26:26
Milwaukee - Cleveland - New York

Mil get Dion Waiters , Knicks future 1st , 2nd round from Cavaliers


Cle get Iman Shumpert , Jerryd Bayless


Nyk get Ersan Ilyasova , Zaza Pachulia



I'm confused. The Knicks give up shumpert AND a first for those two bad contracts?


Knicks can't send out $2.5M of salary and take in $10M +.

SAS Champs 2014



08 Aug 2014 23:11:14

Cavs get Love

Wolves get Wiggins, Young, #1 from Cavs

Sixer's get Bennet, Barrea, Mbah a Moute

Wolves clear enough cap space to sign Bledsoe.





08 Aug 2014 07:04:06
Thunder get Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, and Tristan Thompson

Cavs get Russell Westbrook, Perry Jones, and Semaj Christion

Pf. T. Thompson/ N. Collison/ G. Jarrett
Sf. K. Durant/ A. Roberson/ J. Huestis
C. S. Ibaka/ K. Perkins/ M. McGary
Sg. D. Waiters/ J. Lamb/ A. Morrow
Pg. K. Irving/ R. Jackson/ S. Telfair

Pf. K. Love/ P. Jones/ D. Powell
Sf. L. James/ S. Marion/ J. Jones
C. A. Varejao/ S. Adams/ B. Haywood
Sg. R. Allen/ M. Miller/ J. Harris
Pg. R. Westbrook/ M. Delladova/ S. Christion




08 Aug 2014 06:41:22
The Cavs have finally pulled the trigger to get their hands on Kevin Love! But is it enough to put them right on top of the Eastern Conference? I don't personally think so.

Here are some moves they could do to finish off there roster the right way:

Anderson Varejao, Joe Harris and a 2020 Round 1 Pick to the Milwaukee Bucks for Larry Sanders.

Shawn Marion - 2 years, $5.5 million
Ray Allen - 1 year, $1.5 million

Erik Murphy
Malcolm Thomas

PG: Kyrie Irving - Matthew Dellavedova - John Lucas III
SG: Dion Waiters - Ray Allen - Mike Miller
SF: LeBron James - Shawn Marion - James Jones
PF: Kevin Love - Tristan Thompson - Dwight Powell
C: Larry Sanders - Brendan Haywood


The bucks hang up laughing. Better off keeping Sanders then giving him away for nothing.




07 Aug 2014 19:46:02
Cavs after K.Love trade

- sign R.Allen 1y 2m, Marion vet min, Billups vet min

final roster:

- Big3 LeBron-Love-Irving and very good supporting cast (talent, experience, ball-handling, shooting. )

- will compete with Bulls for #1 seed in eastern conference

- have everything to win multiple championships

- LeBron will lead this team to at least 2 championships in next 5-6 seasons


Im amazed the cavs would put out the money like this

- james can leave after this next season or at least get a $24 million plus contract to resign

- varejao is going to be a free agent

- irving is soon to be in the $12 million range

- waiters could be a free agent next year (option)

- if james don't resign, they won't have a 1st round pick next year, they won't have wiggins

- Thompson is also a free agent next year (option)

so getting love, james, irving making over $7 million and varajeo also

they made a mistake to trade wiggins without getting a SF whos under team control for more years then james is


Not trading wiggins for love is ridiculous especially with the roster the Cavs have




07 Aug 2014 19:21:54
Imagine what could have happened for the Cavs. they should have gotten the 9th pick in the draft, Lebron might not have come, so they wouldn't have the assets for Love, plus he wouldn't resign.

What might have happened:

Kyrie Irving/Matthew Dellaladova
Dion Waiters/Viktor Karasev
FA(Deng/Hayward)/Anthony Bennett
Triston Thompson/Noah Vonleh (drafted)
Anderson Varejo/Brendan Haywood

What did happen:

Kyrie Irving/Matthew Dellaladova
Dion Waiters/Mike Miller/Joe Harris
Lebron James/James Jones
Kevin Love/Tristan Thompson/Malcom Thomas
Anderson Varejo/Brendan Haywood

They must like the Ping pong lottery balls. Without the two lucky bounces they wouldn't have Wiggins or Bennett, so they wouldn't be able to get Love.

As a warriors fan, I'm happy we didn't trade Klay Thompson. No need to break up the best backcourt in the league. They just need to stay healthy, and they will take the next step.


The best back court in the league is Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford


^crawford doesn't even start


Next year or in two years it'll be Wall and Beal


^maybe but Steph and Klay are still rising


Crawford is 6man plus I think JJ Redick starting. And best backcourt is "Spash Bros".




07 Aug 2014 03:43:49
