Cavs Houston Denver
23 Jul 2016 10:31:36
The Cavs are giving up to much.
But i like the Love for W Chandler+ Gallinari trade.
23 Jul 2016 15:42:17
This would leave the Cavs with a roster full of guards and SF's, but absolutely no 4's or 5's. No from Cavs.
22 Jul 2016 06:28:26
22 Jul 2016 03:48:55
Cavs sign smith Perkins terry (vet min)
Irving terry Williams
Smith shumpert jones
James dunleavy Jefferson
Love Frye smith
Thompson Andersen Perkins.
22 Jul 2016 05:27:59
Don't sign terry. Have Kay Felder. Cavs need the youth lol.
22 Jul 2016 06:29:38
Plus you forgot McRae. As a Cavs fan how do you forget McRae lol.
22 Jul 2016 06:31:22
Actually our roster is completely full to be honest if we resign JR but if we don't, we have one spot but besides that we don't have anything open.
20 Jul 2016 08:40:12
Knight/ Smith/ McRae/ D. Jones
Booker/ Jefferson/ Dunleavy/ J. Jones
James/ Frye/ Anderson
Bledsoe/ Ulis/ Williams
Goodwin/ Shumpert/ Barbosa/ Jenkins
Budinger/ Dudley/ Warren/ Tucker
Love/ Bender/ Chriss
20 Jul 2016 09:00:35
This is a bad trade for both teams :-)
Cleveland doesn't need Knight, they need wings
And no way the Suns give up Booker for Love, they already have Chriss and Bender, just let them develop and give them plauing time.
20 Jul 2016 10:51:36
Personally I don't think it's bad for either team. Suns gain their star that they been wanting in Love and he will be the 1-2 option with Bledsoe so he will score and regain his offensive form from Minny I would believe also the Suns gain a defensive wing that they desire in Shump. Williams gives them a good offensive guard option but most importantly they get rid of Chandlers contract. It's horrible for Suns and doesn't give time for the young bigs to develop as much this trade actually gives the Suns more time because they only have four true bigs and Bender and Chriss are two along with Len and Love so all good young bigs and development time if there. Only question for Suns is can they part with Booker who would fit perfectly in the Cavs offense and give them another young talented piece to go along with what they have. It's a price to but there are a lot of benefits for Suns and for the Cavs simply they gain more depth and gives them a two young players to develop with their core of 27 and under players.
20 Jul 2016 13:09:11
Love wants to play 35 minutes, so Bender and Chris have to play C.
T Chandler would be a good teacher forthose young talents.
Chander don't ask the ball.
The Love -Bledsoe combo would be good. But the Suns can't beat GS and the Spurs the next two-three years.
So they better keep those young talents
Booker-Crhiss-Bender+ young pointguard could go to the finals in a few years.
20 Jul 2016 13:22:13
Idont see Booker getting traded. The suns would have 3 PFs . replace Booker with bender or chriss.
20 Jul 2016 14:55:41
why would the suns trade 2 of their 3 main guards. for the one position they drafted not 1, but 2 high level prospects. This makes no sense for the suns.
20 Jul 2016 15:52:37
A bad deal for both teams. yeah, and especially PHX. This deal would scuttle all the plans to rebuild with young guys. and make them competitive to gov for. what. the 9th or 10th spot in the West? No way. no thanks. no deal. the Suns say.
20 Jul 2016 04:43:01
Bold prediction Westbrook stays all year with thunder.
It and pick for Westbrook
Russell and deng for Westbrook
Three team trade around love for Westbrook to cavs and love to Boston.
Best offers for one year rental no team going to give up more for Westbrook.
20 Jul 2016 06:07:27
Meaning none those trades work and Westbrook stay. No Team going to give up much more witout extension which I believe Westbrook wouldn't sign. He wouldn't want team to find up major assets to get him then not be real contenders to keep him.
20 Jul 2016 07:12:02
I agree unless OKC totally sucks and they are out of the playoff race at the deadline. If they are losing and know that Westbrook is unhappy they most likely will try and trade him for at least something. Hope it's to the Cavs because I am a Cavs fan but Boston seems most likely with major contenders as possibilities. Don't count out the Spurs.
20 Jul 2016 08:03:54
It will be fun if the thunder help the spurs this year by sending westbrook to them and challenge durant and the warriors.
20 Jul 2016 10:00:41
It wil be fun indeed if Westbrook signs wit the Spurs :-)
I think the Russell for Westbrook trade is realistic.
LA rather have stars and OKC is a good place for Russell to develop
Only Boston has the assets and is going to be prepared to pay more for Westbrook.
19 Jul 2016 07:44:41
Deng and gay to cavs.
Love to Lakers
Clarkson, randle and shumpert to kings.
19 Jul 2016 08:11:15
Kings get away with highway robbery.
19 Jul 2016 08:19:01
True GM Love sacramento
I think Cleveland is going to keep Love for that offer, but i think it improves all teams.
It's a great trade for LA and Sacramento.
19 Jul 2016 13:23:37
I'm sure he only favors Sacramento because everyone else on here always trys to steal thier players.
19 Jul 2016 15:14:44
Love is done, you don`t get Clarkson and Randle for him.
19 Jul 2016 15:42:00
Matigol don't act like a fool i would love this for LAL since Love will ultimately help in the pitch for Westbrook cmon.
19 Jul 2016 15:43:21
How is love done?
19 Jul 2016 16:47:32
Mat is right! Deal with it!
Love is 27. He averaged 16 and 10 being the 3rd option on the team. he's terrible. I wouldn't even consider him a backup pf at this point. I think he should retire.
19 Jul 2016 18:10:48
I like this for the cavs. They get two above average rings and James can play pf and pg.
James/ gay/ Frye
19 Jul 2016 18:14:20
Also forgot to give Cleveland pick year from sac.
19 Jul 2016 03:38:49
BOS - CLE - MIL
BOS get: Kevin Love
CLE get: Greg Monroe, Avery Bradley, and Jae Crowder
MIL get: Marcus Smart, Amir Johnson, and Mo Williams.
19 Jul 2016 04:03:48
Kevin Love isn't worth that much m.
19 Jul 2016 04:41:23
19 Jul 2016 07:33:21
Take out Bradley.
19 Jul 2016 13:22:48
Don't think Cavs would do it if they took out Bradley and at least didn't replace him with something so maybe Rozier or a 1st or a few 2nds. Crowder is a good addition but Monroe wouldn't be as good of a fit as Love is currently because he can't stretch the floor.
19 Jul 2016 02:20:17
Thunder Trade: Westbrook, Kyle Singler
Receive: Noel or Okafor, Lakers First Round, Jordan McRae, Kormaz, Covington, Second Round from Cle
Sixers trade: Noel, Lakers pick, Covington, Kormaz
Receive: Irving, Shumpert,
Cavs Trade: Irving, Shumpert, Second Rounder
Receive: Westbrook, Singler
What do you guys think?
19 Jul 2016 02:37:01
A big why why would the thunders trade for that and why would the cavs want to trade Irving.
19 Jul 2016 02:41:53
Nowhere near enough for Westebrook, OKC says no.
19 Jul 2016 02:53:52
Eh. If that's so. Thunder would rather take irving himself.
19 Jul 2016 05:54:55
Cavs won't trade Irving.
19 Jul 2016 02:16:56
3 TEAM TRADE
Cousins, McLemore and Koufos to Cavs
LOVE and GAY to OKC
Kanter, JR smith*, Dion Waiters*, and Singler plus 2 1st rd picks (cavs and okc) plus some cash considerations and 2nd rd picks to Sactown to sweeten the deal
Jrsmith-14.5M and Waiters 12.5M.
19 Jul 2016 02:43:10
Love and JR don't get you Cousins, period.
18 Jul 2016 23:57:35
This trade wouldn't happen until near the trade deadline but I think it could be beneficial for both teams in the short and long term.
Hawks get Kevin Love and Iman Shumpert
Cavs get Paul Millsap and Thabo Sefolosha
Schroder/ Jack/ Delaney
Shumpert/ Korver/ Bembry
Bazemore/ Prince/ Hardaway
Love/ Scott/ Humphries
Howard/ Splitter/ Tavares
With Millsap likely to leave Atlanta in the offseason, the Hawks bring in a player that will help them offensively, which is where I think they will struggle this year. Love spaces the floor for Howard and also can create on post ups. I think Love can return to his Minnesota days rebounding and scoring in this lineup. Shumpert replaces Sefolosha.
Irving/ Williams/ Felder
Smith/ Sefolosha/ Dunleavy
James/ Jefferson/ Jones
Millsap brings great defense to an already good defensive team. He does not need the ball in his hands to be successful offensively. He is a glue guy that makes a team better. He is on the last year of his contract and I think Cleveland could convince him to stay, but they could also let him go and have cap space to try and make LeBron's super team since both Paul and Wade will be free agents. Sefolosha is just another veteren defender on the wing.
19 Jul 2016 05:31:29
I like this trade.
19 Jul 2016 07:53:12
Milsap is a better player than Love and the main difference between Iman and Thabo is age. Thabo may also be more consistent shooter.
18 Jul 2016 22:21:51
Cavs trade - Irving, Shumpert, and 17 1st
Cavs get - Westbrook and Holiday
Thunder trade - Westbrook, Payne, and Kanter
Thunder get - Irving, Evans, Shumpert, Diallo, and 1st from Cavs
Pels trade - Diallo, Evans and Holiday
Pels get - Kanter and Payne
Westbrook - - Felder
Smith - Holiday
James - Dunleavy
Love - Frye - Jefferson
Thompson - Anderson
Irving - FA
Oladipo - Shumpert
Evans - Roberson
Ilyasova - McGary
Adams - Diallo
Payne - Cole
Hield - Moore
Hill - Pondexter
Davis - Jones
Kanter - Asik.
19 Jul 2016 01:32:25
Interesting offer. However I don't see Cavs dealing Irving anytime soon or Westbrook being a great fit (I think he'd do better on a team where he is the top dog and its his team) as he isn't the shooter that Irving is. This would be an ideal deal for the Thunder and its just meh for the Pelicans. Jrue Holiday is an interesting piece cause kid was an all-star at 22 and although he's been riddled with injuries past few seasons he is still only 25 and could probably benefit from a reduced role.
18 Jul 2016 19:28:22
Cavs-Kings if JR Smith is going to sign elsewhere for more money
Cavs get Gay, WCS, and McLemore
Kings get Love and a 1.3m trade exception.
19 Jul 2016 05:58:06
As a Cavs fan I like this a lot!
18 Jul 2016 19:14:15
4 team trade
Cavs get Westbrook, Koufos and McLemore
Thunder get Gay, Smith, Rozier and 2 1st rd picks (the 2018 celtics pick and 2017 celtics pick with power to swap to nets) from celtics
Kings get Irving, Crowder and Johnson Amir
Celtics get Cousins and Morrow
Westbrook teaming up with ucla teammate KLove and get revenge to Durant.
Thunder get 2 1st pick and a starting wingmen with Oladipo playing Point.
Kings get a point guard they want, plus cheaper starting SF and a true PF.
Celtics will pair Cousins and Horford that will be nasty.
18 Jul 2016 21:29:22
Kings say no unless you swap Johnson for a reasonable pick and/or Bradley or the like.
18 Jul 2016 23:14:55
Kings should say yes. Irving is a stud in the position they need and cousins is leaving them anyway.
18 Jul 2016 17:57:30
Heard that Nets and Sixers are pursuing JR Smith. Supposedly he wants 15 million per, and Cavs may not want to go that high. He got his ring, I think he would follow the $$, even if it takes him to a rebuilding team. He's from NJ, so Nets or sixers is a trip home. Would fit nicely as a 2 year starter for the sixers until a stud wing is found in the draft (Josh Jackson) or traded for. Is he that much of a head case? I don't think he's ty Lawson level problematic. Any thoughts?
18 Jul 2016 18:11:30
If nets wants him, cavs sign and trade Jr smith to nets.
18 Jul 2016 18:39:21
Why would they do a sign and trade? they're not giving a max contract :-)
18 Jul 2016 18:43:56
I'd take him as the Sixers 2 for a few years.
18 Jul 2016 18:55:16
simmonsorbust: I agree. I think he a very good, but very streaky, 3 point shooter.
18 Jul 2016 20:52:40
Sixers and Nets have to spend the money anyways, Smith would be a nice fit for both. The only concern is his track record on bad teams vs. good.
18 Jul 2016 21:30:16
jvoug. jr smith is a TERRIBLE person in the locker room. JR is notorious for being immature and selfish. He was less so the past year because he has lebron to keep him in line and win for him. But I can guarentee you, if he is in a rebuild, itll take about 2 months before he starts demanding the ball more or getting shipped out.
Sixers are in a great position with their youth. He is NOT a player that should be anywhere near them.
18 Jul 2016 21:52:41
yeah. Immature and selfish is definitely not what philly needs out of a 12 year veteran. Maybe let the Nets have him if that's the case. I just don't want Waiters on this team, and with Okc signing Abrames, Waiters looks like the odd guy out. Please stay away "Junior" Colonjello. Such a mature post. lol. Seriously though, the sixers desperately need a shooter, again .
18 Jul 2016 17:30:21
Cleveland: Vaugn+ Monroe+ R Gay+ 1rnd pick bucks
Sacramento: K Love+ MCW
Milwaukee: Cousins+ Shumpert
Monroe can become a sixth man and the first round pick is a good future asset for them.
Sacramento receives a good return for Cousins
K Love would be a 20-10 guy in sacramento
And Milwaukee receives a star player, without giving up key players.
18 Jul 2016 17:44:11
Kings say no. They would trade cousins and gay for young players, not players to help them stay at the 13-15 seed.
18 Jul 2016 21:31:34
There is no way the Bucks receive Cousins for that awful package. MCW, legit no one wnats. Monroe, can't even get a late lottery pick for him. And a 1st from the bucks. This is a TERRIBLE return. And its for cousins AND gay.
18 Jul 2016 22:40:11
MCW is just playing for the wrong team.
18 Jul 2016 22:43:04
I wouldn't want cousins anyway he's a team killer.
18 Jul 2016 10:47:55
18 Jul 2016 11:38:54
No from Lakers.
18 Jul 2016 23:38:10
That's a strong no from the Cavs. Thompson is arguably their third best player behind LeBron and Kyrie. Yes Kevin Love is more talented than Thompson offensively, but Thompson might be the best all-around post defender in the NBA. He can bang in the post and rebound and block shots and he can switch pick and rolls on the perimeter. The Cavs don't win the finals without him. They are definitely not trading him.
17 Jul 2016 11:42:34
Mavs are a good team, there was no better Mavs team before! But now we have others! Like Cavs, Warriors and so on .
But lucky Mavs could have a homerun.
I expect Powell as an improved 6th man! So could be a faktor for the idea to trade for improvements and keep Bogut and DWil as well!
Trade 1 in Dec. :
- Mavs 1st 2016, 2018
- Mavs 2nd 2016
- Mavs 2nd 2018
Wes, young guys
17 Jul 2016 12:40:08
The kings are going to trade D Cousins for less value, than he's worth, but i'm sure they receive better offers.
No way Dallas can get cousins for Powell.
17 Jul 2016 13:16:39
what about bledsoe for harris!
17 Jul 2016 14:10:51
You grossly overstate the value of Mavs players. They don't have any real appealing assets and they'd have to fork over a lot to get Bledsoe and don't think they even have enough to get Cousins.
Personally don't think this Mavs team is all that good; just good enough to escape lottery but not close to contending which is the worst place to be especially when your team is filled with mostly veteran past their prime players. Free agency hasn't been kind to them and they have very few young players for hope to be good in future. Maybe Barnes will step-up in his bigger role but I wouldn't bet on it.
17 Jul 2016 15:14:10
Bascially agree on the asset . but both Bledsoe and Cousins have will have only 1 year left on their contracts and fit not perfect in their Teams.
17 Jul 2016 15:48:33
Cousins has 3 years. Not everyone you trade for is a free agent!
17 Jul 2016 15:48:50
2 years not 3.
17 Jul 2016 17:50:39
Think he forgot to put Barnes in the trade to the kings since he not in line up.
17 Jul 2016 21:21:25
This guy is as big a joke as true.
17 Jul 2016 21:24:37
He is legit going to post this exact post everyday until the trade deadline passes. Also. Who the hell is Powell and how does he get you cousins?!?
18 Jul 2016 02:03:27
How can the Mavs trade a pick they don't have in a draft that has already happened?
17 Jul 2016 09:11:09
OKC Cleveland Toronto
2017 1st (clippers pick) and 2nd round pick from Toronto
Future second round pick from Cavs 2019 or 2020
17 Jul 2016 11:38:34
only way cavs get westbrook, is if they give up Kyrie.
17 Jul 2016 13:15:59
Raptors say hell no.
18 Jul 2016 04:11:09
Why would the raptors need 3 center on there team and bring in a small forward that's best as a 3Rd forward on a good team hell for the raptors hang the phone up.
16 Jul 2016 19:10:29
Cavs get Chris Paul, Anthony Morrow, Mitch McGary, and a 2nd rd pick from OKC
Clippers get Russell Westbrook (with confirmation he will stay) and Iman Shumpert
Thunder get Kyrie Irving and Paul Pierce.
16 Jul 2016 19:49:48
Irving is nowhere near as good as Westbrook and Shumpert would not be in the rotation for a lot of teams.
16 Jul 2016 20:52:21
Kyrie Irving is a few years younger than Westbrook so and this is an awesome return for OKC for Westbrook instead of possibly losing him for nothing.
16 Jul 2016 22:01:01
I take Irving with that clutch 3 pointer and able to finish better at the rim.
16 Jul 2016 22:05:35
Lots of players are younger than Westbrook. Doesn't make them better.
17 Jul 2016 00:20:49
It means they have potential to get better, Irving could one day get about as good as Westbrook. Plus he is locked up for 4 more years on a good contract.
17 Jul 2016 00:48:47
Westbrook is better, but Irving is a great return for a player that leaves next year.
17 Jul 2016 06:03:26
Irving averaged 27 a game in finals with James being better player. It's tuff Irving just got to show up next year with same game. Teams would rather have Irving then Westbrook because this time around three point Shooters are Major.
17 Jul 2016 14:54:02
Just wondering to all the people saying they rather have Irving in the long run. He is younger hmmm ok. He is a better shooter hmm ok. How many games has irving missed for injuries? Yea and how many has russ missed? Older or a better shooter i or whatever Russ is a better rebounder, better assist man and will play 75 to 80 games a yr.
18 Jul 2016 07:08:03
Irving missed like 101 Westbrook missed about 75.
16 Jul 2016 09:21:26
Cleveland: Griffin+ CP3
Clippers: K Love+ Irving.
16 Jul 2016 11:59:06
Griffin and Paul are both free agents next year so not worth it. This trade really doesn't help either team so why make it and risk loss of team chemistry.
16 Jul 2016 13:43:51
Maybe if Cavs didn't win I could imagine a Irving CP3 swap but I can't see them trading Irving now. Also, I think Griffin would be an even worse fit than Love on the Cavs.
I think a more likely scenario is after Cavs get destroyed by Warriors in finals Lebron decides to head to LA (where he already has a house and his kids go to school) and form a super team there. A CP3, Lebron, Jordan core would be solid then depending on if they resign Griffin or not they could attract a better fitting free agent like Gordon Hayward or do some sort of sign and trade to get Melo. They'd likely want to bring in Wade as well but given the size of his contract and his fit I don't think it would be a smart or easy move to make.
16 Jul 2016 14:36:57
I like Griffin far more than Love and Paul far more than Irving.
16 Jul 2016 17:28:34
Griffin is better than Love, but I wouldn't take Paul over Irving right now.
Cavs don't make this deal, NBA Champs don't turn over their roster that dramatically the following season.
