OKC Send - Dominic Sabonis, Enes Kanter, Kyle Singler, 2017 1st OKC
Recieve - Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford
LAC Send - Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford, JJ Redick, Deandre Jordan, Chris Paul
Recieve - Dominic Sabonis, Enes Kanter, Kyle Singler, 2017 1st round OKC, Kyrie Irving, Harrison Barnes, Wesley Matthews, JR Smith (sign and trade)
CLE Send -Kyrie Irving, JR Smith (sign and trade)
Recieve - Chris Paul, JJ Redick, 2017 1st DAL, 2017 2nd DAL
DAL Send - Harrison Barnes, 2017 1st DAL, 2017 2nd DAL
Recieve - DeAndre Jordan
Well this would be a huge trade. It would never happen but I think it makes sense. OKC look to get back in to finals contention and Griffin is a Oklahoma native. LAC go into rebuild mode and look to build around Kyrie Irving. CLE look to strengthen their team even more and Lebron and Chris Paul are good friends and Lebron has influence on the Cavs. Dallas look to turn one of their free agent signings in to a better player and one they targeted last year in Deandre Jordan. However Dallas called him a coward so they would have to make up. I could see him going to Memphis and replacing Barnes with Parsons. What do you think? Who wins and loses and what changes should be made.
24 Jul 2016 12:00:19
It's to complicated.
Clippers shoulnd't trade all their star players. Griffin and De Andere are still young enough to keep.
I like the CP3 for Irving trade, it should make both teams better, but i think Cleveland is going to say no, why should the champion change a winning team for an older player?
No way Dallas want DeAndre :-), Cuban is crazy but not stupid. The Dallas fans wouldn't accept that trade.
If any team should rebuilt, it's OKC, they better trade Westbrook for picks and young talents.
24 Jul 2016 12:24:49
Why in the world would the clippers trade their team? I don't care what they get that is just terrible.
24 Jul 2016 15:12:53
How does the pile of spare me parts that the Thunder are giving up lands them Griffin?
24 Jul 2016 17:00:57
This one's a cluster.
24 Jul 2016 20:18:50
Well if the clippers keep their team it won't win them a championship or finals appearance.
24 Jul 2016 21:21:55
Griffin and CP3 are both free agents next year so they could theoretically lose both for nothing and their core 3 hasn't been able to do much together thus far so I could see breaking them up but they'd have to get an outrageous offer and this doesn't cut it. With them being free agents not sure they get that offer.
CP3 to Cavs would be interesting (I think he'd make them a better team in short term and bring out a lot more in Love) but don't see them trading Irving after this past finals.
25 Jul 2016 08:45:08
The problem is the cavs can't have Kyrie and Paul on the same team. Even if they tried they don't have any valuable assets for paul apart from love or kyrie.
23 Jul 2016 11:41:40
Sixers trade okafor covington
Mavs trade harrison barnes.
21 Jul 2016 15:51:57
A 76ers plan
Wesley Matthews for Joel Embiid
6ers cash in on the amazing potential of Embiid but manage to get out before one more injury makes a return unsalvagable. They get back a way overpaid player, but the 6ers have plenty of cap space to waste. He provides shooting and Perimeter defense, he'll be a positive influence and let Ben Simmons learn about the NBA game with a NBA quality player on the court with him.
Mavs- it's time to mail it in, tank already. Take the huge upside of Embid. Embid Anderson and Barnes is actually an intriguing core, especially with a high draft pick this year.
Jahil Okafor&Nik Stauskas - Buddy Hield&Quincy Pondexter
Okafor really doesn't fit with Simmons, as the 6ers really need hyper athletic cutters that can make the most of Simmons passes on the break. Buddy provides elite shooting and room to build on the other parts of his game that many draft pundits were split on. They also get a young wing with potential.
Pels get a great interior scorer whose potential is being a little over looked, pairing him with AD can cover all of his flaws defensively. Okafor also protects AD from the physicallity of constantly being in the trenches. They get a shooter in Stauskas that provides spacing desperately needed, and as the 5th option puts him in a position to actually Suceed.
6ers line up
21 Jul 2016 16:13:50
Cut it off:
A roster that has a little more potential, a 6 or 7 seed this year, a top 4 seed the year after.
21 Jul 2016 16:15:55
I hate this.
So now that the Sixers have Simmons, they need to give away two big guys? Colangelo would be crucified for these.
21 Jul 2016 16:17:41
Pelicans can keep Buddy and trade for Monroe.
21 Jul 2016 16:30:16
@Simmonsorbust Seeing that these big men aren't good fits for the team and only have declining value, yes. The 6ers could be a crazy athletic team that just runs and runs its way to wins. Embiid and Okafor just get in the way of that.
@THEKING Between his way superior upside and Monroe's contact, I think Okafor is worth it. All Buddy really is right now is a shooter, Okafor was taken 2nd in a really good draft class, people are sleep on how he good he can be, he has the potential to be ADs second star.
21 Jul 2016 16:51:18
Insane trsde. Weasley for Embiid. We didn't wait two years to give him away.
21 Jul 2016 17:22:43
@Tregib the 2 years is sunk cost. Investment in the team is something that can distract you from the point that no other team cares what kind of investment your team has in him, they only care how he helps them now. This is a good return for a guy with a similar career arch to Greg Oden, the 6ers have their star now, let someone else play chance.
21 Jul 2016 17:31:26
That isn't giving him away, its taking on a solid starting wing.
There are many many problems with this proposal even still.
First, Wesley Johnson is a different human being than Wes Matthews.
Second, Ben Simmons is not a pg. You don't want to have a rookie pg start, but instead, you want a rookie pf to start offensively as pg. you're destined for failure.
Third, how are you trading away Okafor and Embiid, and replacing them with Saric? Saric has never played a minute in NBA style basketball. It is much faster and physical. The 3 point line is deeper. He will need a couple years to adjust.
21 Jul 2016 17:45:33
The idea that the Sixers "Have" to trade anyone is idiotic.
I get the idea that these guys may not fit together, but that is still tbd in the case of Embiid with anyone.
The only guys that have shown an inability to play with each other is Noel and Okafor, but that is moreso because of noels inability to do anything besides Dunk the ball on offense then anything else.
We know very little about Saric and embiid, and even Simmons on how the pieces will fit. It doesn't mean that guys get given away for quarters on the dollar. The Sixers are several seasons away. All they have is time to work these things out.
21 Jul 2016 18:33:29
Too many Wesleys lol, meant Wes Matthews throughout the post.
However, your other 2 points are moot seeing that Colangelo already said he Simmons running point (Google it) and Saric is definitely going to be starting on that roster this year regardless. I just took what they're already doing and cashed in the extras for lots of shooting, and a more balanced mix of defense, experience, and upside.
@Simmonsorbust I mean we don't concretely know that Simmons can't play with Okafor but I think it's a pretty safe predication based on the fact great passers usually thrive off of constant movement and athleticism, something Noel's got (plus better rim protection) than Okafor.
21 Jul 2016 18:55:12
Also I didn't say they "have" to trade the big men, I said they "have" declining values. Just letting the team play out and gelling with time isn't a terrible idea, but the value of every player is just going to drop like a rock when they don't work. Instead of allowing that, the sixers could project forward what's actually going to work and then trade those guys while they are worth something. That decision would be proactive, and I think it'll take some vision from the GM to pull the trigger.
21 Jul 2016 19:45:18
Sixers should pass unless the player they get is better then ones given up or has potential to be better. We're not giving guys away. And Wesley is not a difference maker of any kind. But Embiid might be. I'd rather keep the might be then the never was or will be.
21 Jul 2016 20:13:00
Talent-wise Noel is 3 of 3 of himself Okafor and embiid. I can't consider him a 5 because he's never going to be able to defend true 5's with his slim build. He's not a starter on a championship team which is what the Sixers (and I hope every other team) are looking to build. If I go into the season with Saric Noel and Simmons as my 3 4 and 5 then I have no scorers. I'll go down to the playground in North Philly and find you 2-3 guys that can run the floor, block shots and not be able to shoot like Noel. Okafor and embiid have talents that can't be replicated every year in the draft. Rashaun Holmes can do 80 percent of what Noel can do.
21 Jul 2016 20:20:40
To your second comment I was moreso referencing the idea that "The Sixers have to trade a big guy before the season" that is consistentlyis thrown around on here. Not saying that's what your thinking was, even though that's how it's looks from the above proposals.
Okafor is going to play plenty of minutes getting easy layups from Simmons creating, and embiid's value is obviously already very low if Matthews is the type of guy the Sixers could get. He'll be 33 before the Sixers can do anything.
21 Jul 2016 20:24:58
I like W. Matthews for J. Embiid for both sides especially dallas. Dallas then can sign D. Waiters and waiters is more durable than Matthews.
21 Jul 2016 21:16:15
1nba fan. No way Sixers trade Embiid for a average on his best day player in Wesley matheweis. They waited too long for him.
21 Jul 2016 21:52:21
you must really not know anything about the Sixers or trading philosophy to have proposed this trade. Honestly this could be the most ridiculous trade on this site I've ever seen. A team doesn't trade a player who hasn't played in 2 years and has possibly the highest upside in the league. That's cashing in unbelievably low on an asset that could be unbelievable. Anyone would rather take a risk on an incredibly high upside player like Embiid than get some overpaid scrub who isn't going to help anyone down the road. Maybe Okafor for Mavs 1st rounder and Matthews would be fair but in terms of the value the Sixers give their bigs its Embiid>Noel>Okafor.
21 Jul 2016 22:43:02
I believe for young players to really develop they need to be surrounded by other quality NBA Players. All of the 6ers potential line ups are putrid, and I believe that clearing out the log jam in the front court is the best way to get some quality around Simmons and create a positive atmosphere. I get how high Embiid's ceiling is, but he hasn't played in 2 years and he's a 7 footer with foot problems. Getting a really solid vet back is a tough move that protects the young core of the team from a situation the attitude that has been present in that locker room for years.
Anyway, I get that some of my trades are a little different, but if that's the worst you've seen on here, stay a while, there's so much more for you to see.
21 Jul 2016 23:12:58
76ers were talking to Pels pre-draft about Okafor as they were other top 6 teams in draft . Pels did not want to give up young talent for Okafor then. Don't think that has changed either.
21 Jul 2016 15:15:47
DAL get Greg Monroe
MIL get Andrew Bogut
I don't know if this could work i'm just thinking DAL make this as a youth movement because Monroe is younger although their interior defense would be affected while Bucks look for a rim protector that happened to be in a championship team also going back to the team who drafted him. I know some pieces should be involved i just can't figure it out.
22 Jul 2016 08:05:50
Monroe and Dirk - would be such a bad defensive duo.
17 Jul 2016 14:28:32
Phoenix Trade idea
Bledsoe doesn't fit with the team age wise.
Knight doesn't fit with Booker.
Mavs - Knight, Chandler.
Suns - Powell, Willaims, Top 5 protected 2017 1st.
Suns land a potenial lottery pick while Dallas gets a starting point guard and a rotation big.
Suns - WCS, Richardson
Kings - Bledsoe.
Suns grab an excellent rim protector, while the Kings try to win now with Bledsoe at point guard.
Offer Alex Willaims a 3 year 12 million dollar contract.
Warren/ Dudley/ Tucker
WCS/ Len/ Willaims
5th worst team imo and the Mavs are a dirk injury away from missingthe playoffs so with the 5th and 11th picks they select.
De'Arron Fox and Jonathan Issac.
2017/ 18 Roster:
Warren/ Issac/ Dudley
WCS/ Len/ Willaims
Within 2 years they make the playoffs and contend by 2020/ 21 season.
17 Jul 2016 15:14:02
Macs say noy no 100%.
17 Jul 2016 23:22:13
I don't think the sun's are getting enough in either of these.
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?
16 Jul 2016 22:43:49
2 possible moves for Sacramento to clear their wing logjam and acquire a point guard
1. Trade Ben McLemore to Milwaukee for Michael Carter-Williams
2. Trade Ben McLemore to Dallas for Devin Harris.
17 Jul 2016 08:06:09
I like the Milwaukee trade
Both players need a change of scenery bad.
17 Jul 2016 10:24:56
True, MCW is a good player on the wrong team and McLemore had talent, maybe Kidd can pull it out.
12 Jul 2016 16:39:36
The Mavs are good. Not at the level of GS oder Cavs but I think a better starting 5 than 2011! But other team are better today.
But maybe the Mavs can play some good moves.
I think Powell will play well, but I do not expect the next Dirk. So maybe the Mavs can enable a trade in Februar, send a starting PF to Wolves and reveive their reduant PG, if Dunn are able to become Starting PG:
Rubio would fit well as a facilitator and he can defend.
In 2017 summer, the Mavs should try to sign Griffin or if possible Cousins! Maybe Mavs can Setup a sign and trade max offer:
If they can procede like that, Mavs would be back as a top contender! Flexible to play big or small!
Bogut/ Cousins, Mejri, Hammons
Cousins/ Dirk/ Barnes, .
Rubio, DWil, Curry.
12 Jul 2016 17:47:59
Rubio is easily worth more than that.
12 Jul 2016 17:48:23
And the Kings would want way more than that.
12 Jul 2016 17:55:43
Wolves aren't trading Rubio for that load of hot garbage.
12 Jul 2016 21:29:43
Wolves will have a pretty good Team in a couple of years. But will not start their play off run this year. So Rubio will be a UFA in the summer, to get something back five month before is better, than loose him for nothing. And Rubio likes Dallas, because he would fit well at Mavs System.
Cousins is more difficult, maybe Kings will as for two 1st picks. But Cousins will have only one year left or opt out of his contract. And I do not see Kings winning this Season better than last, so Cousions will ask to Play elsewhere as well. And their are not so much Teams, he will join and will have the perfect spot for him. And a Team like Lakers will not send Russell away, so Kings can get a very good Play in a Cousins trade, but not a Superstar or a very good rookie. So 1st round picks is the best value and in a sign and trade a 30m trade exception, so the may lure another big contract away.
12 Jul 2016 21:34:28
ignore the rubio trade. he has the mavs getting cousins for a 1st. Literally, that's it. A first. In a sign and trade, when he is still under contract. Get. Out. Of. Here.
12 Jul 2016 22:07:07
Again, Rubio is under contract for three more years at what is now a very decent 12 mill per. He is not
, I repeat NOT, a UFA at the end of the year.
12 Jul 2016 22:08:30
Dude, Rubio isn't a free agent for another 3 years.
13 Jul 2016 12:10:00
Wait. Did he just say the Kings make that move for an 30 million dollar trade exception? Put down the bong drainer. No need to be irrational here.
09 Jul 2016 20:12:52

09 Jul 2016 20:40:45
I think you're Bensimmons.
09 Jul 2016 20:41:08
And btw the Mavs signed Seth Curry.
09 Jul 2016 20:46:02
It's obviously bensimmons. No one else does those absurd stats. I just love that bogut is the best on the team. Barnes. Mediocre at best. Just funny.
10 Jul 2016 08:50:54
Williams gets more than 4 assists
Barnes scores more than 10 points.
05 Jul 2016 09:53:16
Dallas just signed seth curry, they should sign Jason Thompson and Gerald green to have a lineup of:
Curry, barnes, Green, Thompson and Bogut.
05 Jul 2016 13:04:59
Barnes is not a SG and J. Thompson is not starting.
05 Jul 2016 13:12:59
I don't think Curry starts over Williams, or Thompson over Dirk, but both signings would be good for the Mavs and would fill out their roster nicely.
05 Jul 2016 13:33:25
Hey this was joke more than what they should actually do, after I heard Dallas sign seth curry, this just popped into my head. Not meant to be serious.
05 Jul 2016 13:43:05
I don't think they understood the joke.
07 Jul 2016 13:32:52
Devin Harris jj barea.
04 Jul 2016 19:55:58
Bucks trade - Monroe and MCW
Gets - Carroll and Ross
Mavs trade - Anderson
Gets - MCW
Raptors trade - Carroll and Ross
Gets - Monroe and Anderson
*Tor trades Patterson for Thabo or THJ*
04 Jul 2016 19:18:12
Who ever though McGee would be a nice trade fit?
-10m trade exception
Would really like if Barnes joins! He is the perfect fit and a young Player - better than Parsons! A better version of Josh Howard.
Maybe Mavs can trade some others like Harris for McLemore or a future 1st for Rubio. nice.
04 Jul 2016 19:28:27
That would be awesome for Dirk
And GS is a good destination for McGee.
03 Jul 2016 19:01:22
-Trade Kyle Singler, Mitch McGary, and draft rights to JP Tokoto to Dallas Mavs for Javale McGee (Saves money and opens roster spot)
-Re-sign Kevin Durant to whatever he wants
-Sign Gerald Green 2yr MLE
-Sign Andre Miller 1yr minimum
-Extend Steven Adams and/ or Andre Roberson
-Assign Daniel Hamilton to D-League
Westbrook/ Payne/ Miller
Oladipo/ Roberson/ Morrow
Durant/ Green/ Huestis
Ilyasova/ Sabonis/ Collison
Adams/ Kanter/ McGee.
03 Jul 2016 14:13:54
Sixers rebuild that centers around Ben:
1. Trade Okafor, Holmes and Nik to Dallas for Wes Matthews, Justin Anderson and future first.
2. Sign free agents Jarrett Jack and Wesley Johnson or Gerald Henderson.
Sf- Anderson or Covington
Bench: Saric, Bayless, Noel, Covington or Anderson (depending on who starts), Johnson or Henderson, two foreign draft picks.
03 Jul 2016 15:57:39
1. Okafor doesn't have that much value. He can't play D.
2. Wes Johnson is back with the LAC.
03 Jul 2016 17:04:12
Absolutely terrible. Sixers laugh you off the phone. Terrible.
Have you seen these contract for terrible player this offseason. Oakfor makes 16 mil over the next three years! And he's better then half the center in the league already. No way. I've changed my mind. Oakfor goes no where unless blown away.
03 Jul 2016 07:19:16
Bucks trade - MCW and Monroe
Mavs trade - Matthews and Pachuila (s&t)
03 Jul 2016 08:23:47
Could work I think improves Bucks as get shooting and defense with solid veteran starter in Pachulia. Mavs get younger which after missing out on free agents for past few years is what they need to do and develop a new core now that Dirk is in his 40s (and may leave) .
03 Jul 2016 11:40:57
Dallas must try something and matthews could be a good fit in Milwaukee, so i like it.
02 Jul 2016 19:53:25
Still in the game?
Sign FA Wade 20m/ 3y and Durant 120m/ 4y : )
I am never kidding ; )
At least, Wade is better than Parsons.
02 Jul 2016 21:34:47
I like this one for minny
No way KD sign for the mavs ☺.
03 Jul 2016 00:36:27
Wolves pass, Rubio is better than either of those players and there is no need to use Rubio to dump Peks contract.
03 Jul 2016 02:26:55
Lmao Rubio better Mathews, Dunn will start over Rubio.
03 Jul 2016 07:16:57
Do you pay any attention to baskeball? Dunn still has a lot of questions about him, while Rubio has proven he can do everything but shoot, there is no way Dunn starts over Rubio right away.
01 Jul 2016 13:40:46
Also as a Maverick, I do not understand why Cuban think every young player joins the Mavs first and afterwards he can build around? There are other teams as well.
Sry Mark, y will no go for president and y have to move your a. to build a good Team! Y have thrown away 5 years now!
So take realistic Player and build around year by year without catching for the moon every year and loosing on it.
Btw, it has "NEVER" worked! Not before and not after 2011.
So as I wrote:
Resign DWil 4y/ 40m and sign FA Howard 4y/ 100m.
Sign Deng 4y/ 40m or try it on Fournier (but he will stay in Orland I think) .
Sign Nicholson, KMart and Terry for Backup spots!
Why not? This team can compete Play 3/ 4 years!
01 Jul 2016 13:58:24
Hornets shop Lamp . to become younger . trade Lamb in a sign and trade for Powell.
01 Jul 2016 14:17:08
01 Jul 2016 14:26:35
Just to make sure. you believe this team will compete for 3-4 years. Dirk will be what, 43? Dwill is beyond broken. Wes is not the same since the injury. Deng is just old by league standards and d12 is on a steep decline with both athleticism and health.
Cuban doesn't make decisions like you, because your decisions are so foolish as they fail to take anything into account besides straight statistics.
01 Jul 2016 16:09:01
That team would compete for AARP benefits.
02 Jul 2016 04:27:20
You guys and Mark are the smarter one . you can see it since 2011 and in the next year .

No from Jazz, Hayward worth more than that.
26 Jun 2016 14:26:48
Did Rudy Gobert go back to france?
26 Jun 2016 15:19:45
Why would Utah want okafor? Gobert is considerably better than okafor.
26 Jun 2016 15:28:07
Gobert is considerably better defensively****.
26 Jun 2016 16:07:34
So, SOB, do you think Okafor is better than Gobert?
26 Jun 2016 16:22:17
Ok, redefine that: gobert has CONSIDERABLY more value than okafor and contributes more to winning than okafor ever will. So, he's a considerably better center than okafor.
An elite defensive center beats an elite scoring center (which I'm not sold that okafor is yet) .

Benmiller. Spot. On.

Utah needs scoring on frontline; R. Gobert, good defense, so good he lead the Jazz in block shots during playoffs;
■ Did Jazz make playoffs this season?
Who's scoring points in the paint
for Utah, outside PF-D. Favors? Utah
needs scoring down low in the West
Conference▶ Utah need to focus on
the defensive play from there
Guards and Wings; Put Gobert on
Cleveland, San Antonio, GSW, or a
Indiana team, his presence would be
valuable to a title run;▶With
a Utah team, No! They need pieces,
and I rather have a Center giving
me 17-20ppg/ 8-9rpg than a
starting Center @ 2 blocks, and
averaging 10-11 boards for a non-
playoff team in the West;
▶Utah guards always get
tough pressure up top on offense,
because there's no scoring threat
down low; Favors is the only choice
giving them 15-16ppg, along with
his 4 fouls pg
■ Amazes me how people post up about
how these Rookies and 2-Year
players will NEVER develop their
games over their careers; So if
Okafor defense is suspect now,
NBA teams/ coaches are not capable
of making him, or other young
players any better on Defense; Not
to say they'll be selected All D
Teams during their careers, but how
can anyone think a Rookie or 2nd
year player cannot become a better
outside or mid-range shooter,
better rebounder, or even a better
defensive player; Players 19,20 and
21 years old starting in the NBA
right now, will get much better at
some of their present weaknesses;
▶Take my chances/ future with Okafor
scoring 18-20ppg 10 boards and
the coaching staff
improving his defense @ 20 years
old, than Gobert @ 8-9 points, 10
rebs/ 2 blocks, 5 years older;Gobert
played about 60 games in 2015-2016;
Does that label Gobert injury prone
for the remainder of his career;
NO, Just like Ja Okafor can't be
labeled as a career non-defensive
performing center after one year
▶Guess B. Simmons/ 76ers mid-range
shot will never improve, even
though he and the coaches are
working towards his improvement
■ How many all star teams G. Hayward
been selected too, or how many times
did he make any All-NBA Teams? Is
Hayward an Olympic selection: ▶
Don't Go There thinking Hayward is
a player worthy of giving up the
house for him; Utah know's Hayward
will depart in Free Agency in 2017,
why not get a young scorer down
low to compete in the West:
■ Okafor, D. Favors, Gobert be a nice
frontline rotation; Ask the Utah
guards who they rather throw the
ball down low to, then set up for
the open look: Gobert or Okafor?
■ When your Defense can't put you
into the Playoffs each year, It's
time to add some Offense:
27 Jun 2016 00:35:04
I agree gobert is obviously more valuable, but Utah isn't winning a ton of games.
27 Jun 2016 00:53:01
Utah was decimated by injuries, is really young, and almost made the playoffs. They have a great core to build on. Also, favors is their big that can score.
27 Jun 2016 02:42:22
D. Favors Utah's main scorer; Okay, see how many playoffs the Jazz will make with Favors as their main scoring option up front;
▶Like D. Favor as a 3rd option, but he needs that young or veteran dawg with him in the trenches on offense, which helps the Jazz guards (Utah Guards-No All Star Candidates) who need as much help as possible to create open shots;
▶ Every team is young, but it's about who's willing to make that move to jump ahead of others; Top Free Agents are not running to play for Utah, and the Salary Cap makes it easier for teams to jump ahead of others; So ALMOST making the playoffs this season doesn't make guarantees for making the playoffs next year; This ain't the Eastern Conference!

Dal: #3 Bender+ A Johnson+ JR Smith+ Jerebko
Bos: K Love
Clev: D Nowitzki+ W Matthews.
20 Jun 2016 15:30:22
Possibly most unrealistic trade I've ever seen. Dirk never leaves Dallas.
20 Jun 2016 18:22:12
Dirk Deserve another title.
20 Jun 2016 20:22:25
Unless Dirk wants to go out like Kobe did. This just fair for dirk.
Dirk sixth man.
20 Jun 2016 22:20:58
You won't get the #3 for Love after the playoff finals he had.
Maybe Jerebko and the 16.
20 Jun 2016 22:54:23
Love was solid and played great role just because he didn't score double figures. Still better then third pick for a play off team.
21 Jun 2016 01:43:00
Jerebko and 16 for Love is ridiculous.
17 Jun 2016 18:32:15
Philly gets Jimmy butler and Taj Gibson
Bulls get lakers pick, philly 2017 pick Dario saric. Kings 2019 first round pick
Dallas get Mirotic #14
Bulls get Dallas 2017 First round pick Dwight Powell
Tank next year and draft Josh Jackson if they get the chance. Say lakers pick is 4th get a PG. trade Dallas and Philly pick for and the Kings pick they own for top ten pick and draft a center
1- Rose- Fultz
2- Snell- Fultz
3- Jackson- McDermott
4- Portis- Fa
5- Bolden/ Jarrett Allen- felciano.
17 Jun 2016 19:50:47
I don't think this is necessarily too much for butler, but the Sixers can't trade thier own first in 2017 because then they'd also lose the kings swap rights.
20 Jun 2016 16:42:30
Too much for Butler. 4 lottery picks.
