Too many big names changing teams for it to happen.

NYK - CLE - PHX
NYK get: Devin Booker and Tyson Chandler
CLE get: Carmelo Anthony and 2017 1st DP PHX
PHX get: Kevin Love
28 Nov 2016 17:05:28
I love this trade for New York, but no way the Suns do this.
28 Nov 2016 17:54:38
If Cavs were going to trade Love for Melo I think it would have already happened. Love is playing some of his best bball in a cavs uniform and I doubt they shake up the chemistry even for Lebrons buddy.
Don't think Phx would take this trade either. Booker hasn't been great thus far but he's only 20 and Chandler seems to have redeemed himself after last year. Maybe if it was Knight and Chriss/ Bender it could work better.
29 Nov 2016 04:57:24
Phoenix would not move Booker for Love, and a Love for Melo swap doesn't make sense for the Knicks. A third team needs to be involved, I just don't think you picked the right one.
29 Nov 2016 05:03:14
Suns have had little to laugh about so far this season. but this trade idea would get some ROFLMAO from them. and after their laughing stopped, they 'd simply say "Not a chance". and hang up.
01 Dec 2016 15:18:19
Riiiight. however multiple trade outlets have proposed this as a potential trade.
25 Nov 2016 10:42:37
Cle: C Anthony+ O' Quinn+ 2 rnd pick NY
NY: K Thompson
GS: Batum+ Kaminski+C Lee+ 1rnd pick NY+ 1rnd pick Cha
Cha: K Love.
25 Nov 2016 19:07:52
The Warriors are never going to accept that trade. They don't want picks and neither Lee nor Kaminsky can help them at the moment. I think both Cleveland and New York are better holding on to each of their respective stars.
24 Nov 2016 19:35:28
Fantasy Trade of Course but kind of creative way to create the Cavs Ultimate super team. (Kind of hope this one becomes a "Rumor" lol) btw HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Cavs Sacramento Knicks 76ers (Yes this Works with Trade Machine)
2020 First Round Pick
Cavs 2020 first round pick
Realistically none of this is going to happen of course but if Cavs got desperate or both Stars demanded a trade to the Cavs and Cavs made it happen this may work. Cavs have the 5 star super team of the century. Sacramento doesn't really get fair value back but they get rid of every negative influence in their locker room that has been open about it at least will adding a few players to replace the outgoing players and a potential in Noel and adding a draft pick. Knicks get great value of Thompson McRae and Gay even if he is only on the Knicks for this season but he replaces Carmelo for now. Philadelphia also gets rid of a problem with Noel and the big men rotation while adding two young prospects in Mclemore and Feilder. Mo gives them a veteran experience and a good teacher and leader for this season if he even does come back but if not it's not loss for the 76ers.
Once again Happy Thanksgiving!
24 Nov 2016 23:04:15
I think you're a Cleveland fan with Lakers DNA :-)
25 Nov 2016 03:48:25
Haha hey our Cleveland teams usually don't get stars to much until recently so excuse us for being greedy lol.
24 Nov 2016 16:57:16
Raptors and cavs
Raptors get Kevin love and shumpert
Cavs get Ross, Patterson and Joesph and first round pick
Cavs just became the best defensive team and a great back up point guard in Joesph
Raptors finally got there all Star Pf who can score in many ways and a back up defensive guard
I know most people will disagree but really think about this on the defensive side for the cavs.
24 Nov 2016 18:21:25
Sivretsolide, the next time you post a reasonable Raptors trade will be the first time.
24 Nov 2016 19:25:37
I'm confused how this makes Cavs better unless you are trying to sell addition by subtraction. Patterson (who would play for Love likely) isn't a defensive upgrade as he is just a stretch 4 tweener that is inferior to Love at basically everything. Ross has defensive upside but isn't even as good there as Shumpert who they are giving up. Joseph is a solid defender but can't expect him playing huge minutes at pg with Irving and both are a bit small to play sg for extended amount of time. Value aside (which is awful) I don't understand how this deal makes Cavs better defensively (I'd argue it may make them worse) let alone how this Raptors offer lands a "star PF".
If you wanted to pitch the defensive side then you probably should've added Carroll and Powell who are actually known as defensive guys. Even then unless Raptors dealt JV Derozan or Lowry I don't see Cavs parting with Love. Now that Love seems to finally found his grove this season I'm not sure they shake things up now.
25 Nov 2016 02:20:58
You guys are obviously not watching NBA games Patterson is a good defender much better than love and Ross is an upgrade over shumpert in all ways and Joesph is one of the better back ups in the league even the spurs wanted him back so before u step all over my trade perposals take a look at the players and there skills love is an upgrade offensively but raps lose a lot of defence.

Big deal for Paul George
Ind- P. George-J. Young
Boston- A. Bradley-J. Crowder-2017 Brooklyn-2018 Brooklyn- 2018 swap option with Boston 1st-2019 Clippers 1st.
Indiana: Adds 2 finge allstars that both make under 9 million and 4 1st rounders. They both can rebuild and compete at the same time.
Boston: They finally get their Superstar and makes them a top 2 seed and challenger with Cleveland
23 Nov 2016 22:36:28
Think you're wrong on several counts, landshark.
1. Boston's D is built on perimeter defense, and that goes to heck without Bradley and Crowder.
2. If the Celtics are going to give up two starters and two high lottery picks, the deal would have to be bringing Anthony Davis.
3. Boston's depth this season is ok but not great, and would be even shakier with Smart starting. And speaking of Smart, no team can survive when your 2 guard shoots 30 percent from deep.
23 Nov 2016 22:57:59
That's a trade wa're willing to give PG13 for.
23 Nov 2016 23:31:39
I agree with Supercollider. George is a top 10 talent and is likely close to worth this offer but that is why you don't see top 10 guys moved very often. Giving up both Crowder and Bradley in addition to the draft picks hurts. I think giving up one of the two players is justifiable but both hurts Cs depth.
Overall I think its a mute point since Indy isn't dealing George unless they get a ridiculous offer and Celtics always trying to get dollars for a few pennies.
23 Nov 2016 01:37:04
Cavs get Augustin green
Magic get McRae Williams liggins future second cash

19 Nov 2016 08:54:49
Some of you said that Melo is unhappy at the Knicks and should move to thecavaliers or clippers.
So I made a big trade scenario sending Melo to the Clippers.
This trade won't happen, but I think the only way Clippers could get Meis with giving up star players themselves.
Knicks get Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Paul Pierce and Brice Johnson
Clippers get Melo, D-Rose, Porzingis and 2017 NY first round pick, and another future NY first rounder
The salaries work very well in this trade.
So Melo and Porzingis have less value than Paul and Griffin, but D-Rose and two NY first rounder have more value than Pierce and Johnson.
The pcan have a new fresh start, but i don't see the clipperding away their best two players, bc they are on a winning streak, but their future looks a little bit brighter bc of getting Porzingis and maybe solid players of the NY picks.
19 Nov 2016 12:39:54
Clips say no. Though this helps their future, this is terrible for them today. Also, why would Melo waive his no trade to go to the Clips when his buddy Chris Paul is going the other way? CP3 would be the biggest draw for Melo to agree to go to the Clips.
19 Nov 2016 13:37:25
Melo and CP3 should play together.
But the Clippers have no assets to trade for him.
The Clippers should consider Porzingis and Melo for B Griffin.
But i still think both teams say no.
19 Nov 2016 15:13:49
Wts i rather Porzingis than Griffin.
19 Nov 2016 23:45:30
Yes that's the problem.
Clippers haven't got enough value.
Griffin for Melo and Porzingis is a good shout, but the salaries on that one don't work.
20 Nov 2016 15:02:55
Knicks fan. No chance I'm trading porzingis. Especially not for an expiring Blake griffin contract.
18 Nov 2016 09:44:10
Carmelo is going to continue to be frustrated and I think will find a new home either at the deadline or the offseason. Since he has the no trade clause I believe he holds control over where he goes majority wise so I believe it has to be a top 4 team in the teams respective conference and teams who have a member of the superfriends get a boost in line so Cavs Clippers and Bulls to the front. Of course as a Cavs fan I would love him but know the the Cavs won't give up Love for him since he's been playing well and clicking with the team so Cavs best offer
Thompson, Frye or Shumpert, McRae, Feilder, future first 2020 (first available first rounder the Cavs have) for Melo
(Cavs been looking to add Chalmers and maybe resign Dahntey Jones since he knows the system and can contribute right away)
I also believe Bulls could make the best offer without giving up their trio of Rondo Wade and Butler. But when looking at trade machine could potentially see a problem of giving up to much potential and youth wise to match the value of Carmelos contract. Clippers could make a good deal if the choose to give up Reddick and Wesley Johnson and more to match the contract value. Honestly though I think it will just come down to where Carmelo wants to play and the Knicks will make it work from there.
18 Nov 2016 14:20:58
He should go to the Clippers or Cleveland
And NY should let him go.
18 Nov 2016 14:38:24
None of those trades would provide what I perceive to be a fair return on Melo. A Love swap would make the most sense (although a third team would likely need to be involved since Love wouldn't be a great fit in NYK) but as you mention it seems increasingly less likely to happen. Therefore the only way this type of deal happens is if Melo forces a trade which I doubt he'd do. I think Melo would be a good fit on some other teams but with no-trade clause he'll get to decide where he goes. Melo already choose his fate a few years ago when he resigned to the Knicks when it was obvious they likely wouldn't be competing anytime soon.
18 Nov 2016 16:54:56
I agree the Knicks should trade memo ASAP. I don't know hai value right now is very high though.
18 Nov 2016 20:33:50
I agree Jaw should NY get more yes but will they? I don't believe so. He is getting older and every day you wait his value drops. I think Melo wants to leave but Jackson doesn't want to see him leave for nothing but with Melos trade cluase it's hard for them to get anything. I believe if this does drag on into the offseason Melo will demand a trade to try for championship. He obviously feels some type of hole because he did USA basketball for so long to be known as the most prestige American in USA basketball. So I think he wants to win real bad and NY isn't going to have a chance for a few years. Trade him now when he still has the most value but even with that the Knicks won't get what they want and I believe the Bulls wouldn't give up Rondo Wade Butler for him. Clippers won't give up Paul Griffin Jordon for him and Cavs won't give up Kyrie Bron or Love now that he is fitting in perfect for the Cavs. So options are low. Maybe Boston of course but Melo still has the last say.
16 Nov 2016 00:07:53
Cavs/ Suns proposed trade:
Kyrie Irving for Eric Bledsoe and Alex Len
Provides defense and is a close friend to Lebron. Better off ball player than Kyrie.
Len: Talented rental at center
Irving: him and Bledsoe provide a platform that the Suns can build their dynasty on.
16 Nov 2016 02:45:24
Never in a million years for Kyrie. Not that Bledsoe and Len aren't nice but Kyrie is an assassin and only 24 and will get even better. Cavs won't trade him but Suns need to give up more and not just one pick or average player either.
16 Nov 2016 03:17:37
Bledsoe gets injured too often for a contender to depend on. Health aside although he is a better defender he isn't the shooter, scorer or as talented as Kyrie. Cavs could use another big like Len (and he is still young and promising) however he also has an expiring contract and his salary will sky rocket.
Deal doesn't make sense for Cavs. Other than Kyrie only pgs I'd prefer to have for the Cavs would be Curry, Westbrook or Paul with Paul I think actually being somewhat possible especially with him being an upcoming free agent.
16 Nov 2016 05:06:55
I would classify Kyrie as a superstar at this point and the return the cavs are getting for him isn't nearly enough.
16 Nov 2016 12:14:38
No for the cavs
Maybe, but propably still no
Cavs: Bledsoe+ Len+Bender+ 1rnd pick Phoenix.
15 Nov 2016 20:47:33
I heard that the pelicans have offered Anthony Davis for a multitude of draft picks. Most of the league is interested including celtics, raptors and cavs.
15 Nov 2016 21:27:45
15 Nov 2016 23:20:31
That's bs. How does the cavs have draft picks. Lol.
16 Nov 2016 03:15:51
16 Nov 2016 22:32:32
LOL Source please?
21 Nov 2016 02:40:49
Raptors should jump on a chance to land Davis trade Ross Patterson Joesph and a bunch of draft picks.
15 Nov 2016 15:32:45
calderon, l. williams and randle
l. a. :
cousins, m. williams, 1st round cleveland, 2nd rounfd sacramento.
16 Nov 2016 02:58:29
How does Calderon, Williams and Randle get us Cousins? Not to mention Williams a 1st and a 2nd?
08 Nov 2016 15:57:56
Dallas: K Love
Cleveland: D Nowitzki+ 1rnd pick 17 and 19 Dallas.
08 Nov 2016 17:30:49
It sounds fair, but Dirk would never play for another team.
08 Nov 2016 18:51:30
He should play for a contender.
07 Nov 2016 13:14:36
NYK/ CLE/ MIA
To NYK - Dragic, Richardson
To CLE - Melo
To MIA - Love
While Dragic is playing PG currently, he has experience playing off the ball. Putting him at SG and letting Rose be a little more selfish with the ball could work. Richardson has the size to play the three, and Lee could slide there to help alleviate the loss of Melo.
Cleveland upgrades offensively and gets a friend of Bron.
Miami has a big hole at the four with Bosh's injury, and Love fills that well. With his ability to play on the perimeter, a partnership with Whiteside would work well.
07 Nov 2016 17:09:28
I don't think Dragic is a good fit in NY
He should be a PG, not a SG.
Ik like this for cleveland. Melo deserve a title.
K Love would be a great fit in Miami, but who would play PG?
07 Nov 2016 17:32:53
Knicks getting hosed. Dragic doesn't have this kind of value.
08 Nov 2016 16:52:32
Knicks say no way. Dragic sucks and we have Rose . Melo is worth much more.
06 Nov 2016 03:38:28
3 way trade
Cavs Minnesota Philadelphia
Mo Williams (contract)
2nd round pick from Philadelphia.
06 Nov 2016 05:46:03
Sixers don't get rubbish in return.
06 Nov 2016 13:14:22
And Minnesota does this why?
01 Nov 2016 00:24:27
Cavs get ariza Beverly
Rockets get shumpert McRae Williams future first and second cash.
30 Oct 2016 22:16:38
Cavs get Beverly harrell
Rockets get shumpert Williams two future firsts and a second.
31 Oct 2016 04:27:07
Two firsts is a lot to give up for Beverley.
31 Oct 2016 15:56:54
Plus the first couldn't be until 2020 and 2022 Beverly isn't worth giving up our future.
30 Oct 2016 21:33:27
Cavs get Noel Crawford
Clippers get shumpert future first grant
76ers get Williams McRae future 1st and 2nd Alan Anderson.
28 Oct 2016 02:07:42
Cavs get Bradley green jerebko
Celtics get shumpert McRae Williams liggins future first
Cavs sign chalmers
Irving chalmers felder
Smith Bradley green
James dunleavy Jefferson
Love frye jones
Thompson Andersen jerebko.
28 Oct 2016 10:07:38
Bradley is their best shooter.
They will only trade him if they receive a good 3-point shooter.
And i think he's going close to All star level this year, so no way they trade him for that.
28 Oct 2016 14:57:07
This seems like a trade I would attempt to make in fantasy,!trade a whole bunch of garbage that's just sitting on my bench, fresh off the waiver wire, for a much better player
24 Oct 2016 17:27:47
Personally considering the age factor with Thompson being 25 and Aldridge being 31 I think both them straight up is close to the same value but let's say Aldridge is higher some, Shumpert is added for defense and youth in Pops system. McRae well is McRae and will shoot the heck out the ball but also the Cavs save 5 mil in this deal and with their salary situation is huge! Thompson may be great for the Cavs but Aldridge is another weapon who can drop 20-30 points any given night and with Love improving defense (not shot blocking but overall ability to guard smart and tight on his man) the Cavs would be overall in a better position I feel to contend with GSW again.
24 Oct 2016 19:21:58
Stopped listening when you said Thompson is worth Aldridge straight up clear homer from there.
25 Oct 2016 05:05:50
Shumpert and McRae bring negative value if anything.
