Blazers trade:

CJ McCollum
Caleb Swanigan
Pick 24
2020 lottery protected first

Cavs trade:

Pick 8.




02 Jun 2017 17:15:11
Blazers trade:
Moe Harkless
Pick #20

Knicks trade:
Willy Hernangomez.


1.) 02 Jun 2017 17:58:07
Don't think Hernangomez is worth this much and although Blazers need cap relief Harkless' contract isn't that bad (also Blazers don't really need a center) .

2.) 02 Jun 2017 18:32:17
The blazers desperately need a backup center Jaw.

I do agree it's a bit of an overpay by Portland, but it does cut salary and bring a decent young player back. If they could then unload Meyers Leonard, they'd be out of luxury tax for one year.

3.) 03 Jun 2017 00:00:10
Problem is that Harkless is not a true salary dump. His salary is moderate and at 24 years old he has big upside value. Portland needs to dump Turner, Leonard, and Crabbe in that order of horrible value contracts. Portland needs an impact 3/ 4 before they need a back up center. This deal doesn't address either.

Blazers receive Drummond

Pistons receive McCollum, Stauskas, and Portland's 2017 first (top 5 protected)

76ers receive Crabbe and Memphis 2017 first (from Portland)

Blazers get a star big.
Detroit gets a solid return for Drummond. McCollum can play beside Jackson, or they can look to move Jackson.
Phili gets a shooter that they need and a first for basically nothing but the use of cap room.


1.) 15 Feb 2017 20:29:57
How does Philly get Crabbe and a 1st rd pick for Stauskus?

2.) 15 Feb 2017 20:35:53
It's basically a salary dump by Portland NewLakerDynasty. With McCollum's extension, the contracts are hard to line up. He counts as 20 million to Detroit, but only 3 million for Portland.

You could certainly take the first out and I think it would be fair as well, I just didn't want to hear TreGib complain about crabbe again.

3.) 15 Feb 2017 21:11:15
Haha, DET agrees to this in record setting speed.

4.) 15 Feb 2017 22:53:13
I went back and forth on the picks quite a bit. Maybe an overpay for Portland, but they desperately need a real big.

Certainly a lot of variation you could do. Crabbe could be replaced with Meyers Leonard and Ezeli (who is non-guaranteed next year) . I might prefer that, because losing McCollum and Crabbe leaves a big hole in portlands wing shooting.

5.) 15 Feb 2017 23:38:26
Confused on how philly get crabbe and a first? Did you forget to include okafor to pistons?

6.) 15 Feb 2017 23:39:29
Philly doesn't need a shooter as bad as people think. 76ers have a couple good shooting forwards.

7.) 16 Feb 2017 01:12:37
Honestly I don't see Portland giving up McCollum and 1st's for a big until they see what they have in Nurkic. Also I hate seeing Crabbe to Philly. I'd rather stick with Stauskas. He's just as productive and cheaper. Crabbe is a bench player making starter money. That just handcuff's the Philly rebuild. Hate this trade.

Blazers trade:

Mo Harkless
Ed Davis
Festus Ezeli
Portland's 2017 first, top 5 protected

Nets trade:

Brook Lopez
Joe Harris
Quincy Acy
(Or replace those two for someone else wth a small contract)


1.) 16 Jan 2017 13:53:05
Nets don't get enough. Someone has to give up at least one quality young asset. Harkless is simply not enough. And the first too late to be impactful.



02 Jan 2017 18:35:22
Damian Lillard for Paul George

It wouldn't happen, teams don't swap stars often, but there's some sense there. Portland balances their roster. Indy moves a star that's getting a bit disgruntled for one locked in a bit longer.


1.) 02 Jan 2017 20:12:25
No there's no sense, Portland wouldn't have a point guard.

2.) 02 Jan 2017 20:37:31
McCollum is a point guard. He's started there every game Lillard has missed the last two years. Just because he starts at SG doesn't mean he's not a more natural point.

3.) 03 Jan 2017 01:05:50
Value wise okay I can see it. But why on earth would that happen.

If Thibs gets his way and minny focuses on established talent over youth, this is a nice move. Harris isn’t a huge step down from Butler. Beverly is one of the better backup PGs in the NBA. And Gallo isn’t much different than Dieng in terms of negative value, but when he’s on the court he’s much better than Dieng.

I could see minny holding out for Williams instead of Beverly if they have to take on Gallo, but the framework is plausible.

Gallo has played 481 games in 9 years. That’s 50 games a season. He can’t stay on the court. I’d take an interior player making less money over paying Gallo 44 million to rehab over the next two years.

And like I said, even if all this is true, the Clippers aren’t the only team on this rumored list, they’re not holding all the cards. If they want him, they have to give up assets. If they don’t want him, then it’s a pointless conversation.

Btec: Explain why Minny would ever consider that trade. I think they'd be better off just waiving Butler right now than taking Gallo's terrible contract. Or trade Butler for Evan Turner, at least he can get on the court.

And again, how is this Butler stuff not just the media? When did Butler call a press conference and personally state these things? Did I miss it?

Show me the paper Butler wrote that included those 3 teams. If you can't, it's a rumor just like any other player. Also, George was the EXACT same situation. He "said" he wanted to play in LA. Then it didn't happen. Butler has now "said" he wants to play for those 3 teams. I'll believe it when I see it.

If you never heard Lebron to NY or KD to the Clippers, go look it up. It was a real thing. Heck, there's an article about "All the times the Clippers fooled themselves into thinking they would land a meaningful free agent". Durant, Lebron, Kobe, George all on that list. Butler could easily be next.

Also, best case scenario, you have a 33% chance at getting him if that list is true. If you trade for him, you prove you are committed to him and increase those odds. It's not like the list was one team.

So many people on this site say the words "why trade for them when they can just sign [player] in the offseason? ". Hasn't that mindset proven to be false in almost every instance? Especially if you're the Clippers and Knicks! The Knicks and Clippers have done it more than once and struck out every time. The Lakers relied on it and were terrible for half a decade (and continue to rely on it to potentially waste Lebron's final few years) . They have waited on Lebron's signing for 8 years.

Paul George was going to the Lakers. Lebron was going to the Knicks, then the Lakers (not this time, but last time) . Durant was headed to the Lakers/ Knicks/ Clippers. Cousins is headed to the Lakers. Westbrook won't resign in OKC, he'll sign with the Lakers. Aldrdige was headed to Dallas. So was Deandre Jordan.
