The Spurs get Korver, Frye, Rose and a Cavs 2nd

The Cavs get Green and Dedmond

The Hawks get Lauvergne, White and Zizic

The Spurs get some needed fire power on offense.

The Cavs get an upgrade at sg and a good back up center. They end up significantly better on defense without losing many future assets.

Atlanta gets a few young players for a guy that doesn't fit into their long term plans.

10 Dec 2017 22:57:41
I can't see the Spurs doing this, unless the think they have a chance signing PG13.

11 Dec 2017 00:22:07
If Rose were healthy, the Spurs didn't have Murray, and Mills, and Parker. And Rose was more skilled from 3, and wasn't looking to retire in a year, or 2 like he stated recently. Not to mention injury history. Korver wasn't 36. Green wasn't an all defense member. Danny Green is a better perimeter defender than Korcer. Lauvergne is a youth movement for San Antonio. They got him on the cheap, and feel they got a good deal. Frye has never been a defensive presence anywhere he has been, other than being long. Hawks would like the youth movement, Cleveland would love this trade. A 1st, or add another 2nd could possibly entice the Spurs.

10 Dec 2017 18:31:58
Portland: I. Shumpert, I.Thomas, V.carter, 1st rd. Pick (Portland) from Cavs.

Cavs: D.lillard, Z. Randolph, Nurkic

Sacramento: T.Thompson, 2 future 2nd round picks from Portland.

Defense in Portland, Cavs get scoring, and D, plus Nurkic is young, and a better shooter than Thompson. Sacramento flips aging veterans, for a young veteran, and future picks.

10 Dec 2017 19:12:41
I'm not sure Portland gets enough here.

10 Dec 2017 19:35:00
Depends on Portlands finish. I assume they would tank. Vonleh instead of Nurkic maybe? Attempted to not let Cavs lose some rim protection. E. Davis, and Leonard are good enough defenders, but not rim protectors.

10 Dec 2017 19:50:57
Portland gets completely screwed. I’m not sure I’d give up just Nurkic for that package, let along Lillard. Thomas is on an expiring deal and has a major injury. Shumpert has basically no value considering his contract. Just a horrible return.

10 Dec 2017 22:59:10
Portland get screwed indeed :-) .
they should get the Nets pick, if they're going to tank.

11 Dec 2017 00:30:49
Bmiller66 giving Lillard 30 mil a season for a guy who gets picked off on screens as easily as he does makes trading him difficult. Kyrie is ten times the player for as much money. They are looking at giving a lottery pick to the Cavs if they don't do something. Nurkic is still learning, but is always in foul trouble. Watch Lillard, and Nurkic attempt the pick n roll, it's atrocious. Lillard isn't a clever passer, and Nurkic hasn't been consistent from the perimeter. Swanigan has more upside, maybe Collins too. I agree though on they are valuable players, but both need distractions, their weaknesses aren't exploited so easily. Building around Lillard alone is a mistake.

11 Dec 2017 02:03:20
Portland does not owe Cleveland a pick. Not sure where you’re getting that from, but Portland owns all of their firsts moving forward right now.

Also, Lillard is a top 20 player locked in for the next 4 years. Trading him is incredibly easy if the want. He has immense value.

And for Nurkic shortcomings, he’s an elite defender and a decent offensive player and still on his rookie deal. Again, he has big value.

You undervalue both of those guys a lot.

11 Dec 2017 02:56:37
Portland traded 2018 1st rd. Pick to Cavs for their 2017 1st rd. Pick. Which I believe was Swanigan.

11 Dec 2017 02:58:43
Nurkic hustles, and maybe doesn't have enough help, but he has been in foul trouble in almost every game this year. When he gets that fifth, the other team guts the blazers.

11 Dec 2017 03:57:19
I like Nurkic, and I like Lillard. Not the way I like Boogie, AD, K. Irving, PG13,Porzingis, Kawhi, Durant, James, CP3,Harden, Dr. Green, Curry, Beal, B. Simmons, Antetonkounpo. Attempting to find a way to help teams help themselves. Pro Sports Transactions is where I got the pick info. Check for yourself. If Portland doesn't make moves, and other teams players stay healthy, they will find making the playoffs difficult. My opinion is just like everyone else's. If I'm stupid in your eyes I can handle that Bmiller66. Been called, and thought of worse I'm sure.

11 Dec 2017 05:32:41
Portland traded the Cavs 2018 pick that they owned for the Cavs 2017 pick. It was never portlands own pick.

Nurkic is also 23. Foul trouble is common in young bigs, that doesn’t mean they should give him away, especially if they’re rebuilding. You don’t trade talented young bigs to rebuild.

I’m not completely against moving Lillard (ok, I kind of am), but not for this return. How does this return chance portland’s Future? They get a worse PG on a shorter contract with injuries? They get useless vets? If they move Lillard they’d want an elite prospect and a high end pick. Maybe something like Fultz, Saric, and 2 firsts from Phili.

10 Dec 2017 16:35:02
Portland: I. Thomas, Crowder,Brooklyn 1st rd. Pick

Cavs:Lillard

Cleveland can score with the warriors, D.rose can heal. Portland gets defensive toughness, and a pick.

10 Dec 2017 17:08:32
Cavs pass as long as they think IT can be 100 percent by the end of the year. First they would need to add a little less than 10 million dollars to the trade to match salaries. 2nd though I think Lillard is the better of the 2, he doesn't give the team anything that a healthy IT can. He's a little bit better shooter, but It is good shooter and he is a little better defender, but still terrible. Swapping Love or It and the Brooklyn pick for a marginally better player, isn't going to give the Cavs a significantly better chance to get past the Warriors, so why do it. Not to mention that the Cavs need Crowder's perimeter defense against the Warriors far more than the slight bump in offense that they would get in this trade.

10 Dec 2017 17:51:02
I meant to include Thompson, and Vonleh for salary match. Portland has 12mil trade exception, so Cleveland could offload baggage as well maybe. It was a long shot. Portland needs defensive help badly. That pick swap with Cleveland last season, for this season, was the dumbest thing beside drafting Sam Bowie in 86' I have seen Portland do.

10 Dec 2017 19:24:01
I don't think the Cavs will try to dump salary unless they end up either getting in the trade or atleast getting back equal value. The Cavs aren't a great defensive team and I doubt they want to lose any of the defenders they have. Shumpert might be moved, but until the deadline, I don't think they'll move him in a salary dump in case they need his contract to match salaries in a big deal.

10 Dec 2017 20:53:13
Have you watched Lillard this year Rkenne? He’s a plus defender. Even at his worst, Thomas was worse. But now, Lillard is a solid defender.

Also, Lillard is on a better contract than Thomas, so his value is unquestionably higher. Portland passes without question, they could get much more for Lillard.

10 Dec 2017 23:05:49
comme on rkenne.
Lillard would be great in Cleveland.
It's like getting Irving back.

11 Dec 2017 00:35:37
Lillard is getting credit for being in passing lanes and picking up steals. Analytics don't tell the story on how easily Lillard is picked off on the weakest of screens. It's not easy to watch considering his salary. There may be improvement to be had for Mccollum, but he isn't much better. Not a better passer, or ball handler than Lillard. For sure. Just a little bigger is all Mccolum has going for him.

10 Dec 2017 11:38:45
Cle: Mudiay+Farried

Denver: hernangomez+ C Lee+ future 1 rnd pick Cleveland

NY: Shumpert+ Zizic+ Osman+ 2rnd pick Denver+ 2rnd pick cleveland

10 Dec 2017 12:53:11
Cavs pass. Their rotation is already pretty crowded and I don't see how either Faried or Mudiay fits into it once the Cavs get healthy. Unless a defensive minded wing or high level center comes available for the right price, there is not reason for the Cavs to give up young assets.

09 Dec 2017 02:05:47
Cavs: Cedi Osman, 2019 2nd round pick

Hawks: Dewayne Dedmon

09 Dec 2017 03:29:07
Cavs would have to add more salary (Frye possibly) but closer to the deadline, if some of the bigger catches fall through for them, I think it would be a great move. It would be good for Atlanta too. Osman's defense and energy could be huge for a team once his confidence on offense comes around. He seems hesitant to shoot it or handle the ball when he plays real minutes, but he's shown the ability to do both and finish in garbage time.

09 Dec 2017 21:53:29
Dedmon is good, and would work out no doubt, and cedi, and pick is fair, but Cleveland is pick depleted, they need to figure another way to make something similar happen.

09 Dec 2017 22:55:01
Jorga, depending on where their 2nds fall they have more than 4 over the next 4 years and they have 4 1sts in the next 4 years and possibly an extra 1st if they're tanking next year.

10 Dec 2017 06:19:58
I thought they had more future picks dealt away. Sounds good for both teams. Dedmon would fit nicely. Especially when Thompson returns, along with Thomas. Atlanta is in full rebuild, so Cedi is good for them too. Could end up being a solid player. Needs to play.

08 Dec 2017 01:40:40
CAVS Get Demarcus Cousins and Jeremy Lamb

NOP Get Iman Shumpert and Tristan Thompson and 2018 1ST round pick from Brookyn

Charlotte Gets E'twaun Moore and future 2 Round pick

Fair trade in my opinion

08 Dec 2017 04:13:02
There's no real need for Charlotte to be in this and with Lamb playing well I doubt they take this trade.

I think the Cavs would been to throw in atleast one of Osman and Zizic as well and possibly their 2021 first with some protection.

08 Dec 2017 13:21:51
It's a little too much to CLE with no real need for CHA to be a part of it. If Moore heads to the Cavs instead of Lamb, I think this is a relatively solid deal though. NO might want a little more back in the pick department though.

08 Dec 2017 15:52:36
Pelicans pass. This is just another repackage of Cleveland has two mediocre at best players and a shiny first round pick so let's get a Superstar because hey we're the Cavs and we're entitled trade idea. This one needlessly brings Charlotte in also.

09 Dec 2017 22:18:02
Brooklyn pick isn't enough. Iman Shumpert isn't good, Thompson is a rebounder, defender, dunker. Lots of those in the NBA. Another pick or two solid early 2nd rounder's maybe. Still think Pels think long and hard about that one.

07 Dec 2017 05:10:26
OKC are bit struggling with their lineup.. What if Kyrie was traded for George and Love for Melo.. How will the Cavs do??

07 Dec 2017 11:43:31
Their record would be similiar to what it is right now and maybe a little better. Lebron has been lights out so far, is a more versatile player than Russ, knows how to make things work and the Cavs bench is ridiculous compared to a sub par Thunder bench. Plus, I think Wade and Lebron could reign in Melo.

That said, I think the Cavs would be worse off long term. Tristan would really be the only true big man in the rotation come playoff time, I think they would struggle on defensive boards, and the team wouldn't have the assets to go out and get another high level big. In my opinion, the gap talent gap at this point between Love and Melo is larger than the talent gap between IT and George. You could possibly argue that if they had just pulled off Irving for George, the team would have a higher upside, but if they can turn that Brooklyn pick into another allstar, the Irving trade would turn out to be a blessing. Specifically, if Cousins or George came available. I have no idea how the Warriors would try to defend Cousins and Love with Lebron and It feeding them and one of the Cavs shooters on the floor that can't be left, if they tried to play small ball. If Durant and Green has to play down low against those two, they would be in foul trouble quickly.

07 Dec 2017 14:04:14
The Celtics wouldn't trade Kyrie for George. That is the ultimate pipedream. They might trade something other than him for George, to add him to Kyrie and whatever would be leftover, but that's it.

07 Dec 2017 14:51:18
Yumbo, he means if Irving asked out prior to the George trade.

07 Dec 2017 17:09:50
Yeah, I went back and re-read it. Thought it sounded wierd the first time I read it. Lol
I too don't think they would be any better st this point because they wouldn't have Crowder and his all around play and the eventuAl return of IT.

06 Dec 2017 07:10:41
3 way trade Cavs Clippers Jazz

Clippers receive
Shumpert
Frye (expiring)
Bradley
Cavs 2021 first round pick
Jazz 2019 first round pick

Jazz receive
Thompson

Cavs receive
Jordan
Johnson

06 Dec 2017 08:18:46
I like this trade for the Clippers, but Why would Utah do this?

06 Dec 2017 14:08:53
I’m not sure if Utah will keep favors after this season since his contract is up and if they do then they have a decent back up to both Gobert and Favors. Something that Utah lacks with big men depth and I don’t believe Udoh is going to cut it and after Gobert went down Favors played overtime to make up for it.

06 Dec 2017 15:07:31
Yeah, I like it for the Cavs and it's not bad for the Clippers, but it's awful for the Jazz. They look like a playoff team and they don't need another center. Especially, this year.

06 Dec 2017 03:35:39
BKN-LAL-CLE
Cavs get Randle (exp) and T. Booker (exp)
-Get the identical match up on D. Green with Randle and a quality backup big in Booker
Thomas/ Rose/ Calderon
JR/ Wade/ Osman
James/ Crowder/ Korver
Love/ T. Booker/ J. Green
Randle/ Zizic/ Frye

BKN gets Clarkson, T. Thompson, T. Bryant
S. Dinwiddie / Clarkson/ Whitehead
Russell/ Crabbe/ Kilpatrick
Levert/ Carroll/ J. Harris
RHJ/ T. Bryant/ (Carroll)
T. Thompson/ J. Allen/ T. Zeller (T. Mozgov)

LAL gets J. Lin (exp with player option) , Toronto 2018 first (via Brooklyn), Q. Acy (exp.

06 Dec 2017 04:27:26
Cavs pass. Booker would be a decent addition, but not at the expense of Thompson. As for Randle, outside of being a solid passer his game is nothing like Draymonds. He doesn't handle the ball well, he can't shoot the three, he's bad defender and he's not where near as athletic.

The Cavs need another big that can guard centers. Thompson does that far better than either of these two and his athleticism and rebounding help the Cavs on offense more than Randle's post ability. Tristan can be effective on offense without getting designed touches. I don't think Randle can.

06 Dec 2017 19:21:59
Lol. I don think you watch Randle. He's been good at defense this year. Vastly improved, and he has handles. His jumper has improved but still getting there. And he's pretty damn athletic.

06 Dec 2017 23:09:52
TheKing in a small sample size, he has the 27th best real defensive plus minus this year at pf. So far he's a mediocre defender. He doesn't handle the ball or pass at any where near Green's level. He may be able to hit mid range shots ( the worse shot in basketball), but he is shooting under 30 percent on 3s and he's a mediocre athlete at best. If he's really as good as you're trying to make him out to be why is he only playing 20 minutes a game on a bad team that appears to have plans of letting him walk?

01 Dec 2017 11:49:43
Cavs get okafor
76ers get zizic Miami 2nd

Thomas rose Calderon
Smith wade shumpert
James korver osman
Love crowder green
Thompson okafor Frye

01 Dec 2017 12:58:53
Okafor doesn't fit the offense, is a below average rebounder and a god awful defender. He'd be worth a shot for a rebuilding team since he can score, but he does nothing to help the Cavs.

02 Dec 2017 00:56:07
Amazing how people feel that a player @ 21 years old will be the same player @ 25 and beyond Okafor could help many teams, playoff bound such as a Washington, Golden State, Boston Rebuilding like Phoenix, Lakers, Chicago .

Unless you seen Okafor play this season, which we really haven't, you can only guess or replay his Rookie Tapes 14ppg/ 8rpg Faces Embidd during practices / 76ers or Whoever's Player Development Team will provide assistance to develop his game . that's there job.

76ers will trade upcoming period, or use Ja for insurance during playoffs But eventually, Ja Okafor will be with a team as a starting Center . 18points/ 9board's type player . Boston been asking for him . but 76ers wanted a 1st Round Pick!

02 Dec 2017 05:47:10
The problem Philly5224 is that Okafor is the worst defender in the NBA, statistically. He might inprove, but he will never be better than a bad defender, and that’s if he improves a lot. There isn’t much room in the NBA for a center that can’t defend. He’s also a below average rebounder, and I don’t think he has the athleticism to improve that to a high level.

Overall, Okafor is a younger version of Kanter. An OK backup at best. Definitely not starting material.

02 Dec 2017 10:32:50
As BMiller says above, Okafor just has the wrong skill set for today's NBA. Teams want agile stretch-the-floor bigs who can rebound and defend (both at the rim and on the perimeter) . Everyone is trying to figure out how to defend pick-and-rolls, and that require switching with quick bigs. Okafor is unique in that all he does really well is score in a low-post type of offense that the league abandoned 7 or 8 years ago. Yes, he could probably be a 20/ 9 guy with enough minutes, but he'd give up more than that on the other end.

02 Dec 2017 13:58:30
Philly, not to echo them to much, but quickness and agility can't be taught and even with world class trainers and equipment, sans losing a significant amount of weight, it's not something that is going to get significantly better with training. You add in his seemingly nonchalant attitude and the fact that the 76ers are so down on him that he's not even in the rotation after they spent the 3rd overall pick on him and with Embiid being on a minutes restriction, it's very unlikely that he can help a contender right now and most likely ever.

02 Dec 2017 18:34:45
People talk about Okafor and “today’s NBA” a lot, but would Okafor fit in the NBA in the 80’s or 90’s? Find me a successful center in those decades that played absolutely no defense. It was even more important then to be a solid defender at center.

His style is more that time, but his talents at both ends of the court make him a bad starter at any point in history.

02 Dec 2017 18:50:27
Bmiller, I think you could hide him better in defense in that era and given his size and strength, he could probably become atleast a post defender you can keep on the field. Plus, his post offense would have been seen as very appealing. Where now, if you can do it, it's a nice secondary skill to have, but isn't seen as a primary focus for an offense.

03 Dec 2017 02:39:45
i do find it funny that there are still 1 or 2 sixers fans that think okafor is this insanely talented center. Mind you, he isn't even the back up. Or third big man. he's out of the rotation entirely.

Why? As everyone said, literally the worst defender in the league. He is the biggest offensive black hole in the league. ball goes down to him, never leaves. that's why he gets 15 pts a game, because he shoots whenever he touches it. He gets rebounds because he is too lazy to help d, so he just cherry picks at the basket. Okafor is a flat out bust. Thus the sixers didn't pick up his option.

01 Dec 2017 10:20:41
Cle: Russell+ T Booker

Nets: Shumpert+ Zizic+ 1rnd pick Nets

01 Dec 2017 19:00:07
actually would be a great move for clev. i think it would be a mistake for bk to make this trade, d-lo will be an all star for many years.
only makes sense if bk tanks hard bc they have their pick back and can make it top 5.

01 Dec 2017 22:35:53
That trade makes sense for both teams.

02 Dec 2017 13:33:01
So ten dislikes and no negative comment :-) :-) :-)

02 Dec 2017 15:05:16
I think it's a fairly even trade from the stand point of value, but for the Cavs, I don't think Russell is particularly needed on the current team. I don't like him as a fit with the starters beside two ball dominant guys once IT come back, I don't like his lack of defense which is needed at the sg beside IT, and I'd be worried about JR moving to the bench. I don't think he would be bad off the bench, but Wade's looked good as a combo guard off the bench and I don't think he's particularly needed there. If the Cavs are going to give of the Brooklyn pick, it has to be for a player/ players that fill needs and brings in a high level of talent. I think he Russell has the talent to give it up, but not the fit.

02 Dec 2017 17:47:13
I don’t understand why Brooklyn would trade a young guard that just took a huge step forward for a pick. Doesn’t make much sense to me.

02 Dec 2017 18:16:06
Bmiller, they're going to have to start paying their guys on rookie contracts before the bad contracts they've taken on are off the books and they still don't have a ton of young talent outside of Lavert, Russell, and Hollis Jefferson. The blue print t building a championship team right now seems to be something like what Minnesota has done or Philly and the Lakers look to be trying to do. Using you're cap space on good players before having to resign your own players still on their rookie contracts. Doubling down on a rebuild might be their best chance to build a real contender.

03 Dec 2017 20:50:49
if cavs could get dlo, the next move should be to s+t IT, dlo is the much better longterm option.

30 Nov 2017 19:36:01
Cle: Dragic+ D Jordan

Miami: Osman+ Zizic+ Frye+ L Williams

Clippers: IT+ T Thompson

30 Nov 2017 20:53:09
Gleveland get a borderline all star, a great defender and they keep the Nets pick.

Miami get two young prospects and capspace

And the Clippers can give their players time to get healty, so they keep next years draft pick.
They can resign IT
And maybe they could do a S&T P George for Rivers Gallinari+ draft pick.

C: T Thompson
PF: B Griffin
SF: P George
SG: Beverly
PG: IT.

30 Nov 2017 14:50:25
LA gets Thompson , Shumpert, Zizic, Rose, the Cavs 2018 1st and a future 2nd

The Cavs get Jordan and Johnson

I think the Cavs will want to get a trade done asap to give them as much time as they can to build chemistry. If they can get Jordan without the Brooklyn pick, I think he is the player most readily available.

30 Nov 2017 16:37:50
Basically Thompson for Jordan.
Clips don't do that deal unless Doc is golfing and the GM is being blackmailed.

30 Nov 2017 18:43:40
Clippers will not take tristan thompson unless the brookln pick is involved. let alone thompson and shumpert.

30 Nov 2017 13:58:31
cleveland and memphis

cavs get. marc gasol

memphis get. tristan thompson / iman shumpert / 2018 brooklyn pick

cavs:

smith
james
love
gasol

rose

calderon
frye

30 Nov 2017 16:40:23
The Cavs are not trading a potential "cornerstone " player (Brooklyn pick) for a 30-something player that will only help this year.

28 Nov 2017 01:22:55
PHI: Greg Monroe, 2nd round pick
PHX: Jerryd Bayless, Jahlil Okafor

Phoenix would get another potential piece for the future with Okafor. They would also get a solid PG in Bayless, a position they need more depth in, considering they only have 5-10 Tyler Ullis and undrafted rookie Mike James currently playing the position.

Philly would get Bayless' 8.5m contract off the books for next season in exchange for Monroe's expiring contract. This would allow the 76ers to pursue big time free agents this upcoming offseason, such as Lebron if the Cavs underperform in the playoffs.

27 Nov 2017 10:46:45
cle: Conley+ M gasol

LA: Frye+IT+B Wright+Zizic

Memphis:Deng+ smith+ shumpert+ Ingram+Osman+ zizic+ 1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick LA 2020 (top 5 protected)+ 1rnd pick Cle 2020 (top 5 protected)

27 Nov 2017 14:21:26
*Zigic go's to Memphis.

27 Nov 2017 15:36:42
You're not usually too far off in your trades Gas, but this one I just don't get. I see the obvious appeal for Cleveland. Even if it's a lot to give up, they're getting back two really good players.
I see the appeal for Memphis as well. They're probably looking at a rebuild sooner than later, and in this trade they pull in a very interesting piece in Ingram, a solid big prospect in Zizic and a few picks.
Where you lose me is LA. Sure, they're able to offload Deng in this move, but they're also losing Ingram and are really only bringing back IT. I love Thomas as much as anyone, but he's not the return LA should be looking for. Magic is all in on Ball, and the two of them would be a terrible backcourt pairing. If you're going to bring in a big time player, it needs to be at a different position.

27 Nov 2017 22:00:37
@soxfan i think la has to include ingram if they are going to be able to dump deng. i agree IT isn't the best fit for LA, but i think he is considered an expiring contract here.
but, if LA flops in free agency, they could bring back IT if no one offers him max (which i don't think he is worth), something like a 3 yr deal, he could work alright with lonzo if he plays off-ball and they could max kcp and run 3 guards or stagger it and lonzo. its not that awful of a backup plan.

28 Nov 2017 01:04:11
@Soxfan

i'm not into the Lakers :-)

I don't think LA can dump Deng without Ingram in a package. They propably better take some extra bad contracts and draft picks. But they already traded Russell and mozgov for B Lopez. So i think this is a similar trade. They can both resign Lopez and IT, if they fail to land other free agents.
And they get a proven star for still a prospect.

25 Nov 2017 16:08:20
LA: IT+ Frye

Cleveland: H whiteside+ Dragic

Miami: Deng+ Shumpert+ T Thompson+ zizic+ Zubac+ 1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick LA 2020+ 1rnd pick cleveland 2020

Lakers get capspace

cleveland go's all in

and Miami start a rebuilt. they keep the 2018 pick they sent to Phoenix if it falls in the top 7. So they could have two lottery picks in next draft.

25 Nov 2017 16:58:40
Not a fan of it for the Cavs. I think Dragic is a slight downgrade from a healthy IT and while Whiteside is an upgrade, I think D. Jordan could possibly had without losing the Nets pick, which would be huge and I'm a bigger fan of what Jordan brings (he's analytically a much better defender, which is what the Cavs really need) .

Miami not interested they are looking to contend now Cavs already are all in.

Something like that can never happen as long as Pat Riley runs the show in Miami. He doesn't do rebuilds.

26 Nov 2017 00:04:36
Riley should do a rebuilt before he becomes the new Phil Jackson :-)



@Rkenne
IT is the better player, but Dragic is a solid defender and a better 3-point shooter.
Dragic is good in blocking passing lines, so Cleveland can use him against Golden state.

C: Whiteside
PF: K Love
SF: LBJ
SG: Korver
PG: Dragic
Sixth: Crowder.

Can't trade 19 pick. It belongs to the Hawks.

24 Nov 2017 13:56:17
The Clippers are 6-11, have almost no chance making the playoffs and Boston owns the 2019 clippers pick, unless it falls in the lottery ( Boston will get 2 2rnd picks). so it's time for them to rebuilt

1) clippers-Portland-Cleveland

Clippers: Shumpert+ Frye+Collins+zizic+ 1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick Cleveland 2021

Portland: B griffin

Cleveland: McCollum

2) Clippers- Lakers
Clippers: Deng+ 1rnd pick La+ 2rnd pick LA

LA: L Williams+ Frye

3) Clippers-Bucks
Clippers: Maker+ Dellavedova+teletovic+ 1rnd pick bucks

Bucks: D Jordan

4) Clippers-NY
Clippers: noah+ 1rnd pick
NY: Gallinari

The Cavs much rather have Jordan (or Blake than) . They needamother big who can run and protect the hole. While McCollum would be a nice addition The Cavs have a lot of shooters, ball handlers, and guys that need the ball to be successful. Guys who can put in work without the ball is where they're short.

@rkenne

I don't think that would work.

I Don't think Griffin/ K Love and LBJ, would be a good trio.

D Jordan would be a good fit, but i wouldn't give the Nets pick for him and i think the Clippers would want picks.

And i like McCollum going home :-) . i think he an LBJ could be a great combo.

24 Nov 2017 17:03:42
Oddly enough, I didn't realize he was from Canton. I grew up in a suburb. Still don't like the fit though. One ball and to many hands that need it to succeed.
