Spurs/ Bulls:

To SAS - Valentine, Portis, Zipser, 2019 1st (top 10 protected)

To CHI - Leonard

Accidentally hit the send button when I meant to change my initial post.

Bulls have quality youth that can be expendable (eg. Lauri ahead of Bobby on depth chart), and while they are not on the rumoured list of teams Claw would sign an extension with, the Bulls could be an attractive place after spending a year there. Lauri, Zach, Wendell, and Kris are a nice young base, and with expiring deals like Lopez’, Bulls will have at least one max contract spot available next offseason. Imagine a lineup of Kyrie, Zach, Kawhi, Lauri and Wendell next year.

For the Spurs, they don’t get the stud youngster, but they get two quality pieces in Denzel and Bobby, take a flyer on Zipser, and possibly sneaks in that first next year as the Bulls with a healthy Claw could be a playoff contender.

To CHI - Leonard

I know Chicago has not been mentioned as a landing spot for Claw, but the Bulls have some young talent they can make available in Denzel and Bobby, and has all of their 1st’s to offer.

Spurs/ Wolves:

Claw for Butler, straight up.

I know this is a bit out of left field, but hear me out.

IF it is true that Butler is frustrated with the young Wolves star’s level of commitment to winning, you couldn’t name a better organization to go to for winning culture. Also, IF Butler and Uncle Drew really do want to team up next year, San Antonio is a team that Irving has previously expressed an interest in playing for.

IF the rumours are true that Jimmy isn’t happy with his teammates in Minny, then the Wolves chances either he or Kawhi become more similar. As a weaker three point shooting team, adding the better player with the better outside shot for a year, and hopefully longer with a good sell job is a win for the Wolves. IF it’s true that maybe Claw doesn’t want to join LBJ after all and is willing to expand his list of teams, why not take the risk if you’re Minny.

Salaries are almost identical for this year. Butler more likely to resign next year with the Spurs, Minny gets the better player and possibly convinces him to stay, making them better long term.

Very interesting.


2.) 06 Jul 2018 09:25:00
I love this for both teams.


3.) 06 Jul 2018 10:41:47
This is by far the best Kwahi trade i've heard!


4.) 06 Jul 2018 10:59:22
Min won't trade for leonard. He won't resign.


5.) 06 Jul 2018 17:52:43
Bcat, I agree, but neither will Butler so why not take a chance and try to convince Leonard to stay with Townes.

Spurs finish offseason

SAS/ LAC

To LAC - Leonard

To SAS - Harris, Gilgeous-Alexander

Kawhi lands in LA, not to the team he really wants, but the Clips would have a better chance of resigning him than almost anyone else. Him, Bradley, Harrell and Beverley are a nightmare on D for opponents.

Clips don’t give up too much, but Spurs get a very good player in Harris and a prospect with upside in SGA.

Use part of mid-level to sign Mbah a Moute, and resign Bertrand, Anderson. Let Forbes, Parker, Joffrey walk.

2018-19 Spurs

PG - Murray, Mills, SGA
SG - Green, Manu, Walker
SF - Harris, Anderson, Belinelli
PF - Gay, Mbah a Moute, Bertans
C - LMA, Gasol

Spurs stay competitive this year, let Walker and SGA develop slowly and take bigger roles in ‘19-20. This team wins 50-52 games, and has space next year when Green, Manu, and Gay come off the books. Gasol also becomes an expiring deal who may have some trade value. Murray, SGA, Walker, Harris, Anderson and LMA lead the team into their next era.

Everyone go please watch what cris carter said on ESPN today. He spoke directly to kawhi. Kawhi never said specifically the lakers. He said LA. The Clippers have a great shot at him. This offer however is not enough.

Spurs/ Sixers/ Hawks

To SAS - Fultz, Covington, Dedmon

To PHI - Leonard

To ATL - Bayless, Derrick White

Spurs get a quality 3 and D wing, much needed front court depth, and though he struggled last year, the number 1 pick from last year’s draft.

Sixers get a superstar, and clear another $7M in cap space, which allows them to offer a max deal to LBJ or PG.

For taking on the Bayless deal, which is worth $2.5M more than Dedmon’s, they get a decent prospect.

not enough to get Leonard.

Realistic Knicks FA targets

I try to be and think I am a realistic Knicks fan. As much as people talk about the lure of the Big Apple, look at the Knicks recent FA track record. It's full of overpaying for old, injury prone or questionable character talent. The LeBron's of the NBA are not signing with us, at least not in the immediate future.

As such, here are the five most reasonable FA targets I believe the Knicks could get, and would be good fits:

5) Goran Dragic - I'm only putting him on this list because he named New York as one of his preferred destinations. I'm pretty sure he'll resign in Miami, but should he not, the Knicks have a shot at him.

4) Thad Young - I've always liked Young, he brings a lot of good things to the table that the Knicks could use. He can play and defend multiple positions well and brings a great work ethic. Knicks don't defend and unfortunately don't hustle much either. He's still young (no pun intended) at 26, and you're not going to have to break the bank to get him ($9-$10M per).

Aaron Afflalo- The guard equivalent of Thad Young with the addition of being a good corner 3 point shooter, which is big in the triangle. $10M per guy as well.

2) Patrick Beverley - Great value addition who plays hard nose D and fits better as a triangle PF than a traditional one. If Dragic is available, throw Beverley off this list, if not, I would rather have Pat at $7M than Reggie Jackson at $14M.

1) Tobias Harris - Most people would have expected Marc Gasol as the #1 non Dragic target, but:

A) why spend max money on him if you can pick Okafor
B) He most likely stays in Memphis, and if not, goes to San Antonio

Harris isn't the defensive player that the others above are, but he's a good mid and long range shooter for a bigger guy, hustles, and most importantly he's from New York and has suggested that going home would be great. $12M should get close to landing him.

Phil has said he would be more inclined to sign mid-level FA's this offseason, and if Beverley is a guy the Knick sign, they still could sign two more of Young/Afflalo/Harris and stay just under the cap without other moves. Assuming filling needs, let's go with Harris and Afflalo, which would give the Knicks a potential 2015-16 starting lineup of:

PG - Beverley
SG - Afflalo
SF - Melo
PF - Harris
C - Okafor

Championship contender, not yet, but 15-16 would be a much better year. With no first round pick in 16, might as well be better anyways!

More would need to be added from the Spurs salary wise, and I would be surprised to see the Spurs make a Raps deal that does not include OG.

Yeah, that’s the most likely deal, but with Van Fleet and Wright already in tow, wouldn’t be surprised to see it being Green as the second player instead of Mills.

Clips already have way too many guards, trading one for two more males no sense.

Don’t see OKC making this move. Turner’s deal is bad, and still has another year beyond this on it. OKC likes Ferguson, and being in the tax with or without Melo, picks are going to be valuable to add cost controlled players.
