29 Sep 2016 13:08:46
Big no from Philly.

29 Sep 2016 13:19:29
Sixers can do better.

We're getting too many bigs in return and that doesn't help us. Shumpert is the only value in this deal for the sixers and it costs Noel Thompson and one of our better players in Covington.

Terrible trade for the sixers.

29 Sep 2016 14:40:52
Kings say no. They don't need Noel, they have WCS. They need wings and guards.

29 Sep 2016 16:06:30
The sixers are actually only getting one big back in Koufus. Collison is a PG, Shumpert is a SG and McRae is also a SG. Not saying that its a good return for Noel, Covington and Thompson but I just wanted you to know that TreGib.

27 Sep 2016 19:20:15
Thunder get Kevin Love

Cavs get Enes Kanter, Alex Abrines, and 2017 1st

Pf. K. Love
Sf. A. Roberson
C. S. Adams
Sg. V. Oladipo
Pg. R. Westbrook

Pf. T. Thompson
Sf. L. James
C. E. Kanter
Sg. I. Shumpert
Pg. K. Irving.

27 Sep 2016 20:57:08
When kanter first arrived at okc he was putting up about 20 and 10 without serge and kd. He will be getting those kind of minutes again and could potentially improve on those numbers, so no we shouldn't trade him unless it's for a superstar however love has talent but we should still keep kanter.

27 Sep 2016 21:57:50
Cmon nbafan, love is definitely better than Kanter. Put love on that team and he averages 20-12 pretty easily.

It's amazing how people forget how good love is. Just like bosh. Lebron is a bad guy for a superstar PF to play with, he kills their stats.

28 Sep 2016 02:28:42
You believe that Kanter is better than 20 and 10? Wow.

28 Sep 2016 12:15:14
Kanter could be a 20-10 guy in a bad team.

I rather have K Love than Kanter in my team.

28 Sep 2016 12:35:26
Love and Westbrook would be really solid, Love would revert back to a 20/ 12 guy.

28 Sep 2016 13:45:14
I like Love but he is getting up there in age and he breaks a lot i rather keep Kanter because he plays a lot like love scoring and rebounding but no D. I rather give Sabonis, Ersan for a Love if that doesn't work then keep Kanter.

28 Sep 2016 16:11:51
The Thunder should keep Sabonis, he's going to be the surprise in this rookie class.

25 Sep 2016 16:45:00
Sac- Cle

Cle: WC Stein+ Gay
Sac: K Love.

24 Sep 2016 21:32:33
1) Boston-Denver- Memphis

Boston: M Gasol

Denver: M Smart

Memphis: A Johnson+ Olynyk+ return Memphis pick 17 nd 19

2) Boston- Clippers

Boston: CP3
Clippers: I Thomas+ J Brown+ return 1rnd pick Clippers 19

C: M Gasol/ Zeller
PF: Horford/ Jerebko
SF: Crowder/ Green
SG: Bradley/ Hunder
PG: CP3/ Rozier

This Boston team could challenge Cleveland and they keep the Nets pick so they can draft young talent that can develop under Horford/ M Gasol and CP3.

25 Sep 2016 01:07:16
Lmao let's see where you are without those ridiculous moves with a revamped Knicks team.

25 Sep 2016 01:16:16
I don't see any way the Celtics get Paul without at least one of the Nets picks.

22 Sep 2016 12:15:50
Bucks and Cavs

Monroe and 2nd rd pick for Kevin Love

MCW for Ben Mclemore

Middleton is out for season

Delly, Terry, Ennis
Antetokounmpo, Mclemore, Brogdon
Parker, Vaughn, Novak
Love, Teletovic, JJ obrian
Plumlee, Henson, Maker.

22 Sep 2016 12:58:16
Monroe barely gets you a second round pick let alone Kevin Love.

22 Sep 2016 14:40:07
Monroes too slow for that team.

22 Sep 2016 17:30:21
I don't think Monroe is a good fit for Cleveland.

23 Sep 2016 00:58:08
You think you can get Love for Monroe, wow!

20 Sep 2016 18:44:09
Knicks - Westbrook, Love, Bogdanovic.

Thunder - Porzingis, Knicks 19 and 21 1st.

Cavs - Anthony, Lopez.

Nets - Rose, Mcgary, Kanter.

20 Sep 2016 21:10:47
Zinger is good but won't get u Westbrook.
Nets pass.

20 Sep 2016 23:26:56
I like the Porzingis for Westbrook trade

Westbrook can play for a big market
And OKC can do a quick rebuilt.
Porzingis is gonne be a 25-10 guy, that can block and shoot the tree, for more than a decade.

21 Sep 2016 01:47:12
So you're pretty much saying that Porzingas is already going to be a top 5 PF all time after one season.

21 Sep 2016 02:51:09
Westbrook, Kanter, and McGary for Porzingus and 2 future picks? . how do u call yourself a Thunder fan.

21 Sep 2016 04:05:39
I like general premise but values are slightly off. I think Bogdanovic should go to Thunder and I think Cavs need to give up a future first or something more to the Nets to sweeten the deal for them.

21 Sep 2016 04:28:53
@gassupo and you think that why? I mean he averaged 14 and 7. not bad but definely not great.

21 Sep 2016 04:33:13
25-10 is a stretch but it's hypothetical so we will see.

21 Sep 2016 08:59:09
I would take that gamble.
He's a better version off D Nowitzki. So i think his numbers are going to be great.

21 Sep 2016 11:39:32
Someone goes from okc to the spurs.

And T. P is going to sign a contracy with the Lakers.
Long ways new challenge.

21 Sep 2016 15:39:56
A better version of dirk?!? Wow, let's not get ahead of ourselves. Dirk is a top 20 all time player and a top 5 PF all time. Porzingis isn't close to that yet. He showed some nice flashes of an elite player, but he's not close to dirk yet.

21 Sep 2016 16:23:48
Porzingis and Dirk don't play anything alike, they get compared because they're tall, can shoot and are Europeans.

22 Sep 2016 00:11:45
The dirk references are, as people said above, simply because they both have deep range abilities and are tall. that's about where it ends. Porzingis will liekly be a FAR better defender than Dirk. Porzingis will be a comparable or better rebounder. So it is potential for Porzingis to be an all time great. But there are many with that potential. The biggest difference is durability and length of career. So while its not too soon to recognize his serious potential, its too soon to anoint him that. wait 10 years of meeting his potential before he is deemed top 5 pf of all time.

However, the because of the visible potential and his overall appeal to the fanbase, his value is incredibly high.

If he is able to remain as healthy, and play as long as dirk. it is possible for him to be a more complete player. but who knows. its so early and he has much progression to do.

20 Sep 2016 18:44:09
Knicks - Westbrook, Love, Bogdanovic.

Thunder - Porzingis, Knicks 19 and 21 1st.

Cavs - Anthony, Lopez.

Nets - Rose, Mcgary, Kanter.

22 Sep 2016 00:13:09
knicks say no. anthony alone is valued at, or above, love. i wouldn't give porzingist, 2 1sts and rose for westbrook. knicks aren't winning a championship with that resulting team, so no reason to give up so much rebuilding assets for one star and 1 secondary star.

14 Sep 2016 04:44:26

Blazers- K Love


Nets- E Davis, M Plumlee, A Crabbe, 1st from Blazers, 2nd from Cavs


Cavs- B Lopez


14 Sep 2016 11:07:43
Kaun got traded.

14 Sep 2016 14:10:17
I think for offensive sake they can't afford to start another traditional big man in addition to Thompson. They need someone who can stretch the floor to 3pt line like Love to make room for other guys. If this trade happened I'd start Frye over Thompson and bring his energy off the bench. However I think Cavs would be better off keeping Love. I think if Cavs wanted to trade Love they'd be best off trading him for two solid sf/ pf types like say Galo and Chandler on Nuggets. I also, think they need to add another big body ideally defensive minded center since Kaun is gone and Anderson is old. This player doesn't have to be particularly good but i think they need another body for spurts during season.

14 Sep 2016 14:15:40
great addition matt. comoplex trade and your issue is the 3rd string center, not involved. awesome. Congrats, you can officially count as being involved. not in a beneficial way, but at least you are involved.

14 Sep 2016 20:17:27
Honestly, I'd rather cut the cavs out and take Lopez. I think aminu and Lopez is a better PF/ C duo than love and ezeli.

16 Sep 2016 01:30:03
I don't like this trade for the blazers. The blazers give up so much for a good player, but he isn't great at defense. I feel it would be a big risk, and I think the blazer are just going to wait it out with their youth. but it would help with the low post log jam and making them contenders quicker.

20 Sep 2016 03:14:32
131. e4r.

13 Sep 2016 17:50:47
Cavs get - Gibson, Wade, Lopez, Bellinelli.
Cavs give - Love, 2019 1st, Thompson, Shrumpert.

Bulls get - Love, Bogdanovic.
Bulls give - Wade, Gibson, Mcdermott.

Nets get - Cavs 2019 1st, Hornets 2018 1st, Shrumpert, 2nd rounder.
Nets give - Lopez, Bogdanovic.

Hornets get - Thompson, McDermott.
Hornets give - Hibbert, Bellinelli, 2018 1st, 2nd round pick.

Cavs improve depth and defense while getting Wade to cleavland.

Bulls get a 2nd all star and a lights out shooters to space the floor.

Nets land 2 1st which is a pretty big deal. Shrumpert is filler. also a 2nd rounder.

Hornets add a starting center who fits, and another shooter.

13 Sep 2016 19:03:57
Where is Hibbert going?

13 Sep 2016 21:03:37

14 Sep 2016 05:53:11
Those pics suck! Nets pass.

14 Sep 2016 14:46:33
Don't like it for Cavs or Nets. I like it a lot for the Bulls and its alright for Hornets. I know Lebron and Wade are boys but he isn't a good fit for that team in Cleveland due to his lack of shooting especially if Cavs moved Love. That Cleveland teams starting lineup would have no real perimeter threat outside of Irving which would kill spacing and make it even more difficult for the other 4 to be productive.

Lopez is one of top Centers in the league and those picks are trash. They won't help anytime soon and aren't guaranteed to be any good once they finally get them.

13 Sep 2016 13:01:31

Cle:Millsap+ L Williams

Indy: Bazemore

Atl: M Ellis+ K Love

LAL: Shumpert+ 1rnd pick Indy.

14 Sep 2016 03:53:48
La would take that and run.

14 Sep 2016 05:09:23
I don't see Williams getting the Lakers Shumpert and a first. I would do it.

14 Sep 2016 05:55:58
La isn't giving enough and should be taken out.

10 Sep 2016 13:29:26

Cle: P Millsap+ 1rnd pick Indy

Atl: K Love+ M Ellis

Indy: Bazemore.

10 Sep 2016 16:03:55
I think Millsap would be a better fit on Cavs then love but love has more trade value cause he is younger and locked up long term. I don't think Cavs would want a pick but another player with millsap. I don't like Indy as part of this trade. Millsap and sefolosha maybe for love I think could get it done.

10 Sep 2016 18:30:47
Love has only slightly more value than Millsap though.

11 Sep 2016 04:24:54
I think Millsap would resign with Cleveland for a 100k 4y contract
The Cavs can use the pick in another trade, to get a deeper bench.

06 Sep 2016 19:46:49
If NY makes a bad start.

Cleveland: C Anthony
Charlotte: Love
NY: MKG+ Kaminsky+ 1rnd pick Charlotte.

01 Sep 2016 23:56:00

MIL get: Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and Shabazz Muhammed

Pg. Rubio/ Delladova
Sg. Muhammed/ Terry
Sf. Giannis/ Vaughn
Pf. Love/ Maker
C. Henson/ Plumlee

CLE get: Greg Monroe, Khris Middleton, and MCW

Pg. Irving/ MCW
Sg. Middleton/ Dunleavy
Sf. Lebron/ Jefferson
Pf. Monroe/ Frye
C. Thompson/ Anderson

MIN get: Jabari Parker and Iman Shumpert

Pg. Dunn/ Jones
Sg. Shumpert/ LaVine
Sf. Wiggins/ Rush
Pf. Parker/ Garnett
C. Towns/ Hill.

02 Sep 2016 05:33:42
Cleveland and Minnesota say yes and Milwaukee should say no.

02 Sep 2016 06:08:48
Love would make Milwaukee a solid playoff team but I think they would look for a way to make it happen without losing Middleton who is under paid/ valued for his contribution.

02 Sep 2016 06:44:19
Bucks give way too much. Minnesota barely gives anything, Cleveland gets too much as well.

02 Sep 2016 07:49:10
Bucks get screwed.

02 Sep 2016 16:24:47
Monroe is the opposite of what lebrons wants/ needs for the cavs.

02 Sep 2016 23:50:39
Ricky Rubio and Muhammad don't get you Jabari Parker. Bucks are getting hosed in this deal. I'd much rather have their team now then the one after this trade.

01 Sep 2016 22:09:38
If chi doesn't go according to plan.

Orlando/ Chicago/ Cleveland

Orlando trades vooch, green, 2017 1st and Lakers 1st/ 2nd
Gets Butler and Gibson

Chicago trades Butler and Gibson
Gets Love, Shumpert, and Lakers pick

Cleveland trades Love, Shumpert
Gets Vooch, Green, and magic 1st





02 Sep 2016 05:11:41
Orlando doesn't give enough.

02 Sep 2016 08:16:29
Orlando doesn't get Butler for that package.

02 Sep 2016 11:18:04
Sorry as a Magic fan even I can tell you this is lopsided for many reasons Magic would have to included Gordon in any deal to get a star he's arguably their player with the most potential.
Love and Shumpert have injury concerns so bulls aren't getting much back for their star if those guys can't play a full season and then giving the cavs Vooch who is a very skilled offensive player who doesn't miss many games for a big man. Also not being biased as Vooch is still a terrible defender which hurts his stock but his skills on rebounding and abilities to score in the half court including his shooting stroke will make him valuable during the playoffs when the games get slowed down obviously he's never played in the playoffs but he has the tools you need and then sending him to last years champions that's a bit of a reach.

02 Sep 2016 13:55:32
What if Orlando added Gordon to chi and either mirotic or McDermott to make salaries work? I think the cavs team actually becomes better this year with this trade, and they can have assets to maintain their dynasty. Although green is 15 mil this year, they shed it after the year, and gain a 1st in a great draft too. The Bulls gain two potential stars for 1.

01 Sep 2016 11:37:40
Milwaukee Bucks
Outgoing - Greg Monroe, Jabari Parker
Incoming - Marc Gasol
Minnesota Timberwolves
Outgoing - Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic, 2019 Minnesota First Round (Lottery Protected)
Incoming - Greg Monroe, Iman Shumpert
Memphis Grizzlies
Outgoing - Marc Gasol, Brandan Wright, Deyonta Davis, Jordan Adams, Wade Baldwin IV
Incoming - Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic, Jabari Parker, Georgios Papagiannis, Skal Labissiere, 2017 Cleveland First Round
Cleveland Cavaliers
Outgoing - Iman Shumpert, 2017 Cleveland First Round
Incoming - Zach Randolph
Sacramento Kings
Outgoing - Georgios Papagiannis, Skal Labissiere
Incoming - Brandan Wright, Wade Baldwin IV, Deyonta Davis, Jordan Adams, 2019 Minnesota 1st Round (Lottery Protected)

Milwaukee Become a bigger threat trying to move out of rebuild mode.
Minnesota get rid of Rubio to make way for Dunn and get rid of Pekovic who has been sidelined with injury while picking up two solid players.
Memphis look to rebuild by shopping Gasol and picking up good young solid players.
The Cavaliers just make a good trade getting rid of Shumpert to allow more game time for JR Smith and Zach Randolph is a really nice solid veteran addition who will be hungry for some rings.
The Kings look to add more depth. Their next move should be to trade Demarcus Cousins and go into full rebuild mode. I feel like this years draft didn't go to great and they should wait a few years and get some really good talent for the future from high picks.
Any changes or picks/ assets that should be added to some of the teams?

01 Sep 2016 13:04:56
Wolves pass.

01 Sep 2016 14:03:43
Bucks say no for one of the cornerstones.

31 Aug 2016 16:59:57
All this melo trade talk to Cleveland got me praying because we don't want k love so just a far stretched idea

Cle- melo
Utah-k love
Ny-Hayward and trey lyles

Por/ Utah

Por-Derrick favors
Utah- aminu and Ed Davis maybe a pick as well.

31 Aug 2016 17:10:11
Favors will cost atleast CJ.

31 Aug 2016 17:15:45
First trade is not bad, but why would they want lyles when they got porzy. Favors has more value than that.

31 Aug 2016 17:10:11
Favors will cost atleast CJ.

31 Aug 2016 17:15:45
First trade is not bad, but why would they want lyles when they got porzy. Favors has more value than that.

31 Aug 2016 18:35:08
Melo for Hayward doesn't seem fair enough so I threw in a young pf our back up behind porzingis is O'Quinn and he's just a body down low, I agree about cj being invoked but idk if that would make them any better than they are now.

01 Sep 2016 03:20:10
I think Love would be a great addition to Utah in place of favors. I wouldn't want to move Hayward who is arguably their best player if I was them however. I'd move Favors and begrudgingly Lyles if it meant netting Love. Obviously this wouldn't interest the Knicks.

Moving Hayward could possibly work but I'd want a little more in the first trade and a lot more in the second deal since although aminu could play the 3 he played very well as a stretch 4 and I think he's more valuable there.

31 Aug 2016 08:35:11

If the Clippers feel it's over

receive: D Jordan
trade: J Brown+ 1rnd pick 17+ a Johnson

Receive: CP3
Trade: K Love+ 1rnd pick 2020

Receive: B Griffin
trade: Adams+ Payn+ Ilyasova+Sabonis

receive: Payn+ Adams+ Ilyasova+ Sabonis+ J Brown+ K Love+1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick 2020 Cavs
trade: CP3+ Griffin+ D Jordan

Clippers 2017:
Draft: J Jackson and D Smith
Trade Love (25-10 guy) for young talents

C: Adams
PF: Sabonis
SF: J Brown
SG: Jackson
PG:D Smith.

31 Aug 2016 11:09:54
Why would Cleveland want CP3 and Kyrie.

31 Aug 2016 11:42:54
Kyrie can play sg.

31 Aug 2016 12:33:51
No from okc.

31 Aug 2016 15:30:37
i find it hysterical when people post trades which involve getting rid of 3 players and getting back like 7. Exactly how do they plan on keeping all those people?

31 Aug 2016 15:45:41
NO from Boston.

31 Aug 2016 16:37:15
Boston would jump thru hoops at that.

01 Sep 2016 00:21:30
Pretty sure Raptors still own Clippers 1st round next year, so they would love to see the clippers turn to shit. Also another reason why this won't happen though. So no Josh Jackson to the clippers

01 Sep 2016 09:04:24
The Clippers pick is top 14 proteced for two years, so they win a pick if they do this.

30 Aug 2016 23:27:25
If NY and CHI can't work.
Cleveland trades Iman Shumpert, Tristan Thompson future first to Chicago for Dwyane Wade.
Cleveland trades Kevin Love, Jordan McRae, future first to NY for Carmelo Anthony
Kyrie Irving for CP3

31 Aug 2016 00:37:48
Ny has no love for Love.

31 Aug 2016 03:45:59
Agreed, Love doesn't fit in with the Knicks. A three team trade that moved Love somewhere else, and different assets coming back to the Knicks is a possibility.

I don't see Chicago making that deal.

31 Aug 2016 04:48:46
I know they're all friends but I don't like Wade on that team unless he's coming off the bench as a 6th man since they could really use a guy who can space the floor and hit the 3. As shizzee suggests a 3rd team would have to be involved to take Love and give something that fits better in NY for Melo since Love wouldn't fit well with Porzingis and Noah. I do however like Melo in place of Love on the Cavs then playing either he or Lebron at the 4.

As your lineup reveals if Cavs traded Thompson to get Wade they'd literally have no center other than Birdman who shouldn't be starting for a contender at this stage in his career.

31 Aug 2016 05:10:45
Cavs will not trade Tristan Thompson.

31 Aug 2016 06:15:46
Cavs will trade Thompson before Love but it should be the other way around but Love is almost just as important as Bron and Kyrie in managements eyes since the championship. They want to keep the big three together but if they could add Anthony or Wade to that for Thompson then I believe they would.

31 Aug 2016 17:03:31
Kevin love is garbage and would only make New York that much softer.

30 Aug 2016 16:07:54

Chi: C Anthony+ LBJ
NY: Mirotic+ Valentine+ Gibson+ McDermott
Cle: J Butler+ Portis

C: Lopez
SF: C Anthony
SG: D Wade
PG: Rondo

C: Porzingis/ Noah
PF: Mirotic/ gibson
SF: McDermott/ L thomas
SG: Valentine/ C Lee
G: Ross/ Jennings

C: Thompson
PF:K Love
SF:J Butler
SG: Shumpert
PG: Irving

Ok, this is not going to happen, but who wins this trade?

30 Aug 2016 17:00:32
Chicago. By a landslide.

30 Aug 2016 18:07:24
CHI becomes the best team in the NBA for the next 3 years then (in a horrific landslide) becomes the worst. It'd be pretty cool to see this happen though.

31 Aug 2016 03:50:52
Bulls win this deal big time, though I kind of like the return for the Knicks. That's a lot of solid young pieces for an aging Melo. It's the Cleveland return that makes this so lopsided for the Bulls. Butler is a star, but he's not close to LBJ.

31 Aug 2016 05:06:59
One does not simply trade Lebron, especially for that offer. I don't think that is even close to getting Anthony either. That Bulls team would be good as a function of adding Lebron and Melo but I hate Wade and Rondo with them. Lopez is a solid piece but the lack of perimeter shooting outside of Melo would severely hurt this team.

31 Aug 2016 15:39:24
LOL, you can like the return all you want triangle. We all know you are a bulls fan. And we all know the knicks get ripped here.

Melo is so aging that his contract has turned into rather acceptable with the cap boom, he just led the USA team to gold, and finished the year as a clear top 5 wing. (James, Durant, Leonard, Melo, George. no real argument that those 5 didn't have the top 5 sf years last year)

Knicks aren't trading the face of the franchise who clearly has a few more great years left for players absolutely not of need? They just signed Lee. So Valentine is stuck behind that for 4 years. They have Porzingis at the 4, so there goes Mirotic and Gibsons value.

Essentially, they trade for some rotational players and then have McDermott as their 3. That is awful.

29 Aug 2016 17:52:36

Cle: J Butler+ Gibson
Chi: K Dunn+ Pekovic+Shumpert+ 1rnd pick Cle 2020
Wolves: K Love+ 2rnd pick LA 18+ 2020 2rnd pick Portland.

29 Aug 2016 18:15:08
Bulls say no.

29 Aug 2016 18:32:39
Wolves say no.

29 Aug 2016 19:42:59
I don't really get it for anyone. Every team picks up a player in a position they least need.

30 Aug 2016 04:07:52
Butler would be a fantastic get for the Cavs especially at that price. He'd give them immense versatility and a huge defensive upgrade. He could play the two or three and lebron can slide to the 4 if needed. Gibson is also a very underrated player who could give them quality minutes. The trade makes less sense for the other two teams involved. Kevin Love wouldn't be a bad get for Twolves as he'd give them much needed perimeter shooting and the value isn't bad but I think Twolves may not want to rock the boat too much and stick with Dunn who they seem high on and is younger and can grow with the rest of the team as opposed to bringing in a guy in his prime who'll demand a lot of shots. For the Bulls that is a pretty weak return for Butler and doesn't make much sense given Bulls personnel moves lately.
