KCP is a restricted FA and isn't going anywhere. I think Knicks should move Melo and i don't think Cavs could pass that up. Don't think Twolves would give up a first for Shumpert tho, it would have to be heavily protected. Suns aren't going to give up Warren that easily either. He is a solid part of their young core.
25 Mar 2017 13:15:18
Minnesota's 2018 1st goes to Atlanta and they probably wouldn't give it up for Shumpert even if they could.
25 Mar 2017 13:41:50
Neither Minnesota nor Cleveland can trade their 2018 1st round pick. Trade never could happen.
24 Mar 2017 21:56:41
(* If Cavs do not repeat)
- Kevin Love for Paul George
- Iman Shumpert and Cedi Osman for Will Barton
Cut: Jefferson, James Jones
Deron Williams - Vet Min
Kyle Korver - Vet Min
Andrew Bogut - 1yr/5M
Derrick Williams - 1yr/5M
Larry Sanders - 1yr/2.5M
Eric Moreland - 2yrs/3M
PG: Kyrie, Deron Will, Felder
SG: Paul George, JR Smith, Liggins
SF: Lebron, Will Barton, Korver
PF: Thompson, Frye, Derrick Will
C: Bogut, Sanders, Moreland
Cavs add size, play big and regain a defensive identity. Get rid of Love and Shumpert's contract to give more cap flexibility. Cavs shoot the three less but rely more on the P&R. Barton gives scoring punch off the bench and deep rotation gives Lebron rest. Also, good chance of Paul George re-signing as playing with Kyrie and Lebron will be his best chance of winning championships
24 Mar 2017 23:17:59
You won't get George for Love.
24 Mar 2017 23:28:58
- Kevin Love to Pacers for Paul George and Pacers 2017 1st
- Shumpert and rights to Cedi Osman for Will Barton and Denvers 2018 2nd.
24 Mar 2017 23:32:33
@Supercollider: George for Love makes sense. George doesn't want to re-sign and Pacers do not a rebuild right now. Love is an all-star averaging 20 and 10, long term contract and only 28. Don't see a better option for Indiana if they want to trade George.
25 Mar 2017 03:24:22
There are many better options. Like keep him.
Also. I love that the comment is you don't get George for love. So you go fine. George AND their first for love. Love is a third option. Proven not to be a first option. George is worlds better.
25 Mar 2017 06:13:31
George for Love is interesting since I doubt Pacers would be able to get a better player in return and if George is true to his word he'd be on a contender and thus would resign in Cleveland. Love is clearly not the level player George is but he is still an all-star. Pacers are in jeopardy of losing him and with him saying he'd like to play for Lakers may scare off teams or at the least influence the strength of their offers. However even with George Pacers aren't that great so they'd probably be worse with Love so they are probably just better off if they deal George to get younger assets and rebuild around their only other good player Turner who is young.
25 Mar 2017 06:14:25
@hamburger George is probably better, but has an expiring contract and does not want to re-sign. Pacers will look for the best trade value they can get for him.
22 Mar 2017 15:21:07
Porter 5yr 100 mil
Melo roots from Baltimore wizards go for it and challenge Cavs next yr. Knicks get 23 yr old who won't be a superstar like Melo. But has all better around than Melo.
Noah 6th 58th for Lin Lopez
22 Mar 2017 16:25:33
Why the hell would the knicks give up melo. for a longer, similar valued contract in porter?
Porter is in his 4th year and having his best year by FAR. at 14 pts, 6 boards.
Why would the knicks possibly want to pay porter like a franchise building block? Especially for 5 years. far better off just sitting back with melo for a couple more years.
With the exception of this year, injuries and ever changing lineup, melo has consistantly made his teams much better overall year in and year out. Is he still elite superstar? no.
But sure as hell rather have him for another 2 years than 5 years of porter at about the same cost.
Not to mention, there is a decent chance melo opts out after next year to get a final, big contract.
Shizzee, you are really really a bad knicks fan. You want to get rid of a very high pick in an incredible draft, for a team that struggles to make the playoffs for a couple years at least. Why not just hold onto it, and build like a smart team?
22 Mar 2017 17:53:50
I think the Wizards would be the one to say no. Porter is a good player, and the big issue there is that he's on the upside while Melo is on the downswing. You need to find a young stud to grow with KP and the other kids the Knicks have on the team. There's a bunch of really good players in this draft, but it's still a crapshoot. I'm not sure if I would make that second move, as I'm not completely sold on Lopez, but you need to ask if getting rid of Noah's contract and picking up Lopez as a #3 guy is worth it. Lopez is young enough to work with that core you're putting together. I think I'd wait to see who's on the board and do it as a draft night deal.
22 Mar 2017 18:43:37
The Knicks would do this so fast it's not even funny. No way WAS does this.
22 Mar 2017 21:57:39
Hate the second trade for the Knicks. In the first one I don't see them being able to get better value for Melo elsewhere (Porter will get a big contract but he is relatively young, versatile, is one of the top 3pt shooters in the league) . Pairing Porzingis with a guy closer to his age is the smart move since history has proven Melo isn't taking this team anywhere.
Melo does very little for them at this point so I think they should deal him for best value they can get. Due to his no-trade clause there aren't very many teams they could trade him to so I don't think they'd be able to beat this offer. Not wanting to pay Porter is only a valid argument if you could tell me who they would give the money to otherwise.
23 Mar 2017 12:05:50
Don't see porter as a franchise cornerstone. No reason to think he will be. Good starter. No superstar. No chance I'd give him 5yrs at melo money when the Knicks could be out of Melos contract in 1 year. 2 years max.
Point is I wouldn't want to sign porter to that regardless of trading for melo. It's an over pay for a player that will likely be the third or fourth option for a team. Will not work out well in the future.
23 Mar 2017 14:21:47
Honestly, I don't see Melo getting a final BIG contract, he definitely won't get a max so he may just as well stay where he is for the final year (28m) . I will be shocked if he gets a 3 yr. guaranteed contract.
23 Mar 2017 15:33:30
Bill, I agree. But I've seen crazier things. Point is though it's only 2 years left max. And he is producing at this point and realistically the next two years far better than porter. So why make that move?
23 Mar 2017 16:28:06
Porter is no 20m/ yr. player so unless its 4 or 5 years at much less money I just don't see it happening, unless Melo pushed for it, he would have to waive that NT clause. Wizards should have done this at the trade deadline to try and get deeper in the playoffs, who knows, maybe they did. When the season ends anything is possible. If KD comes back like he was when he left GS should win. And this drives LBJ crazy, Cav's didn't make a big splash because the owner took away LBJs trading power.
Don't think Knicks would do this. But one thing for sure is Jackson will do his best to get rid of Melo. We can all agree on that.
23 Mar 2017 16:43:48
Third options will get paid 20 million in the current salary cap of the NBA. 20 million for a young guy like porter isn't crazy, it's the market.
23 Mar 2017 18:33:49
OK burger 2nd trade valid points, I agree. You can't ignore what has happened with salary cap and salary. Porter is worthy 5 yr deal 100 mil. Guys like Oladipo Parsons getting more. It's only going to get worse next yr. Porter numbers jump each yr. Better all around player than Melo right now. Wizards are win team now.
Knicks get Biyombo
Magic get Noah rights to swap 2018
Ball-2nd/ Mason-58th/ Randle
Lee/ Thornwell-47/ Baker
Porter/ Thomas/ Kuzminskas O'Quinn/ Biyombo/ Inglis
Porzingis/ Hernangomez/ Plumlee.
23 Mar 2017 19:03:15
Bmiller. absolutely false. Simple math proves differently.
This is exactly why NO will have issues.
If 20 mill is the 3rd option, reasonably 25 and 30 mill would be number 1 and 2.
That means those 3 players alone account for 75 million. And that's the issue. You can't fill out a solid deep roster with that little of money.
He simply isn't worth that amount.
24 Mar 2017 00:10:33
Good players are getting paid like great players, and that means since the cap has gone up the past 2 seasons money is being thrown about recklessly, without any thinking of past 2018. This will hurt some teams. Portland, for one, and if Cleveland doesn't win this year they're going to have to start selling pieces because they are in cap trouble for 2 more seasons and then they still can't sign a max player .
NO is in a position where I think, depending of where they're at in the standings next deadline, they could trade Boogie for much more than what they stole him for. Good move by Pels.
24 Mar 2017 02:34:31
Porter has improved his game this season. He's upped his field goal and free throw percentage and shooting 45% from three, upped his scoring, is a decent rebounder, and will get you steals and a block, he's a good defender, and he's like what 23, 24? Teams would easily give him 5 years 100 million and a team like the nets would give him a max to see if he could be a star stepping out of the stars shadows from wall and beal like the Mavericks did with Barnes (I personally think Porter is better) .
24 Mar 2017 03:32:03
Porter will be Allen Crabbe. After the big contract, his game will fall.
24 Mar 2017 15:34:49
EXACTLY what I was thinking USA. The king. a drastic diviation from your career norms in a contract year is NOT a reason to throw money at a player. Porter shows all indications of a good, not great, player. If you really think you can devote 20% of your team cap to a third, fourth or fifth option, go for it. But that's the mentality to screw yourself.
Especially when someone goes, well, Parsons got more. So what. So the knicks should make a terrible contract because another team did a similar terrible contract?
Right now, Porter is 5th on his team in scoring. Bela, Wall, Bojan, Morris, and Gortat is just behind him. HE IS THE FIFTH OPTION ON HIS TEAM. Prior to this year, his best year is 36% from 3, and it wasnt because of a lack of opportunity. This year is good, not great. And by no means an indication that you should spend that kind of money on the guy. It just simply makes no sense.
24 Mar 2017 18:01:23
I wish they would change all sports contracts to a minimum with bonuses to make more if you play good. You play like a star you'll get paid as such. You play like a slacker you get paid as one. Stop paying for what they did in the past, start paying for what they did that year. Of course that will never happen.
16 Mar 2017 00:36:28
Waive liggins and jones
Kyle Korver (3 yr 18 mil)
Deron Williams (2 yr 6 mil)
Derrick Williams (2 yr 4 mil)
Andrew Bogut (1 yr vet min)
Josh Smith (1yr vet min)
Irving Williams felder
Smith shumpert Jefferson
James korver smith
Love frye Williams
Thompson bogut sanders
16 Mar 2017 04:46:17
Both D Wills and Bogut will get more than that.
16 Mar 2017 04:59:15
Why would Bogut get more? He's washed up and has had way too many injuries.
16 Mar 2017 06:06:42
Williams and Bogut could likely get more elsewhere but they aren't going to get much more from a team that is in championship contention like the Cavs.
16 Mar 2017 06:17:29
If the Cav's can't do it this year what makes you think the these same guys will do it next year? . The Cavs window with James is shrinking rapidly. The reason why Gilbert didn't make a significant splash during the trade deadline is because he lost 50+ million last year. A smart man will make that mistake twice, otherwise he would have dealt for Boogie.
16 Mar 2017 16:02:30
Meant to say A smart man will not make that mistake twice. Was sleepwalking when I posted that.
16 Mar 2017 17:38:05
They added Korver before the deadline, but why would they add money or waste assets when the players available after buyouts were going to be in the same level as anything else they can add. I think they'll retain Korver, if they can sign him somewhere near the amount he's currently making. Which seems somewhere close to what he's worth at this point. I don't think Gilbert is going to cut spending this offseason with Lebron looking to sign a long term deal. I think they'll do what they can to keep Deron and Derrick, but they don't have bird rights on either so the money they can give them is limited. I don't see Bogut coming back. If Sanders can play reasonably well, they don't need him. I think Liggins will be gone and Osman will take his place and if Osman can play at a decent level Jr, Korver or Shump could be moved to save on luxury tax. As for your assertion that Lebron is on his way down, He's having one fo the better years of his career and Love and Irving both are still improving.
13 Mar 2017 15:10:09
Cavs get: 2 future 2nd rounders
2. Overpay for jj Reddick. We have tons of cap room, and non of the top tier elite guys is looking at philly at this stage. Offer him something he can't refuse, 3 years 75 million. It won't hurt philly to overpay at all, and he would be awesome with this young team.
3. Bring over korkmaz from Europe.
4. Assuming we get the 5th pick, draft Monk.
Good mix of young guys and vets.
Sixers would have there own pick and Lakers unprotected #1 in 2018. Plus, there own pick and kings unprotected #1 in 2019.
13 Mar 2017 19:21:12
If not Frye, maybe Olnyk or Miritoc as back up pf. Both are restricted fas at the end of the season. And much younger then frye.
13 Mar 2017 20:11:09
If a GM were to pay JJ Redick 25 million per year over three years they would probably be fired. He's much more likely to sign a deal around 18 million for two years because he is getting old. Even though 76ers have cap space it does not make sense to just throw money at older players, look at the Lakers with Mozgov and Deng.
13 Mar 2017 21:00:28
Tom the GOAT Brady:
Sixers will uave to overpay a bit. Maybee 22mill per for 2 years for reddick will do it. Reddick has some tred on the tires still. he's still producing at a high rate and is the exact kind of guy the sixers could use to teach some of the young guys how to win in the NBA. Deng and Mozgov where horrible signings, i see reddick mote as a korver type, but a few years younger.
13 Mar 2017 22:36:49
Redick doesn't deserve 3 years for that much. Maybe 2yr 50m would do it.
13 Mar 2017 23:25:09
Reddick is only 32, and is the perfect kind of guy that will age very well. He's going to get waaay more than 2 years 18 million. I don't think 18-25 million per year for 3 years is out of his value in the current salary cap of the NBA.
14 Mar 2017 01:32:04
I think Reddick is in the 3/ $54mm range.
14 Mar 2017 04:04:03
I think JJ is in the 3/ 30-36 mil range.
14 Mar 2017 19:46:08
JJ won't be with the LAC next season @18m/ yr, or at what I predicted. If he's playing for a title he will take less to win, if he's playing for a paycheck then he might get 3/ 45 but he'll be on a crappy team. All depends what the player is playing for. Only 1 championship quality team with plenty of cap room can absorb that next year and that's the Warriors.
11 Mar 2017 01:17:29
Lakers get Wade Melo Noah 57
Bulls get Deng Shumpert 32
Knicks get Clarkson Brewer Rondo
Cavs get Mosgov
Bulls gets quality return for aging Wade and counter productive Rondo.
Cavs bring back familiar player bc they lack front court depth
Nice mixture of quality experience and young talent
Knicks go back to defense. Clear cap space by releasing Rondo, offer Durant 4yr 160, Hayward 4yr 140 mil or Porter 4yr 120 mil per season nobody will match.
11 Mar 2017 09:34:25
Doubt the Lakers do this, but it could work.
I realy like this for NY.
It's not bad for the Bulls if they keep Butler, but they would only do this if Wade doesn't use his players option to become a free agent.
No sure what to think about Cleveland, It think they can do this if NY gives them a future draft pick.
11 Mar 2017 10:34:26
If lakers get their 1st rounder this year then their 2nd rounder goes to Orlando.
12 Mar 2017 00:44:01
Salary won't work for Cavs. Mozgov makes way too much for him to be worth getting back anyway.
That is a bad move for Bulls since they are taking back Deng's contract. They'd be better off waiving Rondo (contract not fully guaranteed) and hoping Wade walks (if not his 25M expiring can be valuable asset) then using their cap space (50+M) to sign FA where they could likely get better players than Shumpert and Deng.
Don't like the moves for the Lakers. They should try to develop the youngins this next season and then depending on how that turns out go all in after 2018 FA when they could potentially add Westbrook and George.
I like the deal for Knicks. They'd be wise to deal Melo asap.
12 Mar 2017 07:41:06
HELl no from lakers we don't want that rubbish man we are building for future.
12 Mar 2017 15:59:23
Melo Wade Noah > Deng Mosgov Clarkson Brewer how ever you spin it. Rubbish man lmao. None of Lakers core of young talent is being touched. Lakers have nice young core and you add 2-3 older stars. They can compete and appeal others. None of the younger star will come until they start winning. Wade and Melo will start the la trend. Wade for 1 yr and Melo Noah for 3 yr is far. Clarkson Mosgov Deng for 3yr.
01 Mar 2017 20:01:10
Offseason okc plans
OKC gets 2017 Cavs 1st rd pick
Portland gets Enes Kanter
Blake Griffin Max deal
Danillo Gallinari 4 yrs $70 million
Norris Cole- 2 years minimum
Nick Collison (retire and work on staff)
#18ish- Bam Adebayo or equivalent center
#28ish- Jonathan Motley or Equivalent PF
2nd round stash picks
Pf. B. Griffin/ J. Grant/ J. Motley
Sf. D. Gallinari/ D. McDermott/ K. Singler
C. S. Adams/ D. Sabonis/ B. Adebayo
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Abrines/ J. Huestis
Pg. R. Westbrook/ N. Cole / S. Christon
01 Mar 2017 21:08:21
Don't believe that Portland would be able to (or want to) take on Kanter's contract after giving out two HUGE contracts last offseason to Turner and Crabbe.
01 Mar 2017 21:42:07
Portland is way over the cap, they'd have to send out that much salary to get him back. Also, with Nurkic, I don't think I'd want kanter.
01 Mar 2017 23:37:22
POR would be over cap but OKC would also be way over cap with this lineup.
10 Mar 2017 21:42:33
Does jbbaby understand the NBA salary cap at all? It would be impossible for OKC to do all of this.
26 Feb 2017 01:56:30
With Williams signing with cavs soon. Cavs should waive McRae and sign bogut once waived if not sign sanders
Irving Williams felder
Smith shumpert liggins
James korver Jefferson
Love frye jones
Thompson bogut Williams
26 Feb 2017 20:16:56
With everyone thinking Bogut is going to sign with LBJ Inc. I'm thinking he's not. I see him going back to Golden State or to Boston.
27 Feb 2017 02:28:55
Bogut is not allowed to sign with Golden State.
27 Feb 2017 18:19:13
Bogut is allowed to sign with Golden State. He isn't allowed to sign with the team that just traded him. which is technically the Mavs. There have been numerous articles explaining that this is a loophole in the CBA language.
27 Feb 2017 19:29:30
I would be fine with the Celtics deadline if they manage to pull in Bogut. I'm worried he will wind up in Houston though. They freed up a bunch of cash by shipping McDaniels off to the Nets.
23 Feb 2017 23:22:21
Cavs sign Williams and sanders
Cavs sign bogut if waived
Cavs waive McRae and liggins
Irving Williams felder
Smith shumpert jones
James korver Jefferson
Love frye Williams
Thompson (bogut) sanders
24 Feb 2017 05:01:40
Don't waive Liggins.
24 Feb 2017 10:08:30
Don't waive Liggins. He's a good rollplayer.
23 Feb 2017 17:14:37
Sixers trade Noel to Dallas for Bogut, Anderson, Top 18 protected first.
Good deal for Dallas I think.
Bogut is likely to be bought out and then could sign with a contender like Cleveland or Boston
23 Feb 2017 17:39:57
I was thinking the same about Bogut being bought out. Would be a great pick up for Boston for the remainder of the season.
23 Feb 2017 18:18:00
If it falls in the top 18 then it turns into a 2017 2nd and 2018 2nd.
23 Feb 2017 18:44:17
I don't trust colangelo to make another trade for this team. Horrible.
23 Feb 2017 20:32:59
Sixers got killed here.
23 Feb 2017 13:21:12
Cavs go small ball.
Cavaliers get- Carmelo Anthony, Kyle O'Quinn.
Knicks get- Tristan Thompson, Jordan McRae, Iman Shumpert, 2021 1st, 2019 1st, trade exceptions. Also draft rights of Cedi Osman, Dom Pointer, Vladimeer Veremeenko, Edin Bavcic, Chu Maduabum, Illkan Karaman.
23 Feb 2017 13:50:22
I don't know about acquiring the draft rights to like62 players, especially as after a trade like this, the Cavs will have one first round pick between now and the time Kyrie retires, but the framework of the deal makes sense. None of the Cavs biggest competition runs out a dominant Center, so going small is fine.
23 Feb 2017 20:59:32
It's was bad enough last yr to dump Shumpert Smith for nothing. Now u want ny to do it again. Melo Noah for Shumpert Thompson fillers. Cavs can keep there 2031 picks you are prposing.
23 Feb 2017 04:34:11
Wolves get Rose
Knicks get Wade Korver
Bulls get Rubio Lee
Cavs get Rondo
Draft day trade Mavs 41 mil cap space
Hammons Smith Trimble-39th
O'Quinn Thomas 2018 1st for cap space
How to esemble 4 superstar team in NY
Wade opts out sign 4yr 72mil 15,17,19,21
Lebron & CP3 sign 4yr 112 mil 25,27,29,31. A 4 star team in ny market in advertising will overcome more money if they all maxed out elsewhere.
All 4 starts will make 90mil in 2017. All others salary 10 mil=102 mil cap
Knicks than sign MLE on Tony Allen and mini MCW
23 Feb 2017 05:36:25
Will it happen I dunno if Lebron leaves Cleveland. But he marches to different beat than anybody else. He already won a championship in Cleveland. If don't win a championship this yr. That team would have more pieces around Lebron than cavs or Warriors. Winning in ny after 40 yrs would make him equal Jordan his only competition. NY now worth 4 billion. Team value will triple. Once again the Zenmaster might coach again. It's possible.
22 Feb 2017 17:21:55
Boston: Okafor+ 1rnd pick sac 2019
Philly: Olynyk+ 1rnd pick Nets 2017
Boston buys time in this scenario.
They can try to get KD and/or G Hayward and/or B Griffin. If they fail to land a superstar, they still have two potential 1 overall picks to trade for guys like PG13 or J Butler, who can become unhappy and who wanted to be traded.
Okafor's stock is low for the moment, but he should be a starter and he still has potential.
PF: B griffin
SF:Crowder/ J Brown
SG: G Hayward/Bradley
PG: IT/ Smart
This team could challenge the Cavs and Golden state
Philly can fasten the rebuilt after years tanking. They can land the 1st, 2nd and 4th pick (Nets,sac(or philly) and Lakers pick.
So in an ideal scenario they can draft Fullz, J Jackson and Monk
C: Embiid/ Noel
PF: B simmons/ Saric
Sf: J Jackson/ covington
This could be a scary team in a few years.
22 Feb 2017 17:50:10
I like this.
22 Feb 2017 18:01:16
Okafor's value now is mid to late first-rounder.
No way Celtics give up the Nets pick for so little.
22 Feb 2017 18:08:17
Lmao i don't see boston giving the nets pick up for anyone on the sixers much less okafor. We have already been through this every team knows okafor is nothing more then an average scorer, and we all know philly wants to get read of him because his value keeps dropping. If you guys really thought he could be special you wouldn't be trading him.
22 Feb 2017 19:34:59
This is horrible for the Celtics. Nets pick worth way more than Okafor, and even though the Kings are a mess there are no guarantees on a pick so far away.
22 Feb 2017 19:34:59
Oh. I like this. I wonder why.
This is flat out stupid.
22 Feb 2017 19:59:07
You're right burger, of course a sixers fan would like this.
Is there any chance boston doesn't take fultz or ball with pick 1, if they are lucky enough to get it? They passed on the guard last year.
22 Feb 2017 22:24:26
Apparently Ainge is trying to avoid trading that Nets pick in a deal for Butler, which guarantees he would not give it up for Okafor.
23 Feb 2017 04:55:25
I can see them taking Ball, Last year he took Brown when he was projected 9th. So you never know with DA.
22 Feb 2017 15:08:28
Celtics trade Crowder, Rozier, A.Johnson, Jerebko, own 1st round pick 2018, 2nd round pick 2017 Clippers, 2nd round pick 2017 Cavs

Because the east is such a joke cleveland will always be a top 3 team, so why would any team want the right to swap picks? Thise swaps have no value.
22 Feb 2017 05:14:30
Don't like for Cleveland. They can get a MCW caliber pg off the streets (Chalmers or Cole) . After Favors recent knee troubles I'm not sure he is any better than Tristan Thompson and certainly not worth giving up picks and swaps for.

This is ridiculous.
21 Feb 2017 16:21:15
Wow, that's terrible value back for Drummond. Maybe if the pick was Dallas 2017 pick and it was unprotected. More likely a draft day trade when you know where the pick lands.
21 Feb 2017 18:44:40
This would only happen is divac was the GM for Detroit lol.
