Lakers/ Spurs offseason

To LAL: Kawhi Leonard

To SAS: Ingram, Kuzma, 2018 1st via CLE

I'm a Spurs fan, and I'm a little concerned with the KL situation right now. If it's true that he's intentionally sitting out though cleared, the Spurs may want to look at a deal for him.

If they do put him on the market, there is no doubt that the Lakers would have interest. At $21M for next year, the Lakers could still have up to $60M to add two more stars and make a Super team. Their is also a good likelihood that KL resigns in La La at the end of next year.

Spurs start the rebuild with two quality young pieces, and an additional 2018 pick. Adding Ingram, Kuz, and two picks (Landry Shammet and Brandon McCoy? ), along with a sell high on LMA could reset the Spurs for 2018-19 and beyond.

LA should include Ball in the trade and maybe keep Kuzma.

2.) 22 Feb 2018 09:35:46
Spurs don't need ball.

3.) 22 Feb 2018 09:20:06
Since its reported he went to see a specialist in New York its safe to say he's injured. He may be cleared, but that specialist could have recommended a more cautious approach. 20-25 games left in the season. Not too big of a deal. Families argue. Good communication prevails. Anything is possible.

I can't see the Lakers giving up 2 of their 3 elite prospects without bailing on Deng.

Spurs offseason

Draft Jontay Porter (Mizzou) at 26 and Bonzie Colson (ND) at 58

Danny Green opts in

Rudy Gay opts in

Joffrey Lauvernge opts out

Re-sign Tony Parker for vet minimum

Re-Sign Kyle Anderson

Sign Kyle O'Quinn for mid-level

Trade Patti Mills to Dallas for Dwight Powell

2018-19 Spurs

PG - Murray, Parker, White
SG - Green, Ginobili, Forbes
SF - Leonard, Gay, Anderson
PF - LMA, Powell, Bertans
C - Gasol, O'Quinn, Porter

As usual, Spurs don't make big changes, but do add much needed frontcourt depth and keep two quality pieces.

I'm curious about Pappagianis. Seems exactly like a guy S. A. Would take on.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 13:33:22
Yeah, he crossed my mind mind, but think they may want a little more vet presence in the frontcourt. As this season is starting to look lost, now may be the time to grab him.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 17:08:52
Didn't I hear that GinobilI is retiring?

Spurs moves:


Bryn Forbes to NY for Willie Hernangomez and the 2019 ORL/ CLE/ HOU 2nd round pick


Sign Tony Allen after buyout

Pretty simple, I don't expect the Spurs to do much but add another big and a depth wing. Spurs have reportedly had interest in Willie for a while, and Tony Allen is a Spurs type move. Knicks get the wing they were looking for, and clear a bit of the logjam in the middle.

Knicks/ Bucks

To MIL: O'Quinn, 2019 2nd from either ORL/ CLE/ HOU

To NYK: D. J. Wilson

Bucks are looking for a quality rotation Center, which O'Quinn fits.

Knicks pick up a young PF who hasn't seen the court much with the Bucks but has potential, and Vaughn, who is a young wing who the Bucks don't seem interested in keeping and is an expiring deal.

Milwaukee currently has 2 other PF's playing Center. They don't need another. As you stated, D. J. Wilson hasn't seen much PT. That was J. Kidds fault! Wilson has played more in the last 4 games under Prunty, Than he did all season with Kidd. The Bucks are still high on him. Vaughn will be a toss in on any trade. Look for the Bucks to find more front Court help. "Centers" Jordan, and Whiteside are the 2 they are currently interested. Plus, Milwaukee can send a 2nd pick plus Vaughn to GS for McGee, and they are set to sign A. Bogut after the trade deadline, as the Bucks also have 2 exceptions. One for 3.4 Mil. and one for 5 Mil. Look for Bogut to get the 5 Mil.

Knicks/ Clips

Noah for Danilo straight up.

Seems simple enough. If Jordan is dealt, Clips are going to need depth at Center. With the addition of Harris, there is no need for Gallo as they are similar players.

Knicks clear out one of their four Centers and get back a needed wing/ PF.

Both guys have two more years on their contract after this season as almost the exact same per, so neither team gains or loses anything financially.

NY should also give a second round pick.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 18:40:28
Gallo can still play up to his contract when healthy. Deng looks like he's completely done. The Knicks need to add some significant young talent to this.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:02:17
When's the last time you saw Deng log meaningful minutes?

4.) 31 Jan 2018 19:03:33
Keep in mind Gallo is never healthy, and he is not needed in Clipperland anymore.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 19:07:38
Im not saying its necessarily a worthwhile trade, but galinari is an awful contract. Dude hasn't played more than 75% of the season since 2012-13. He has had lingering injuries. And when he did play this year, he shot like 35%. Both players are scrubs.

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!

Tostitochip, way to fire back at everyone who doesn't like your deal.

As for your original comment back, I thought you were suggesting a second round pick, not 2nd overall.

Yes, Ball has the potential to be an All-Star, but Wall already is. Separate of that, while Ball has potential, at best he's the 4 best rookie from his class (Tatum, Mitchell, Simmons), and multiple other rookies, including possibly Kuzma have arguably had better years.

I do believe he'll be a good player, and likely an All-Star, but he's not Wall, nor has he proven enough yet for Washington to make him a centrepiece of a Wall deal.

Absolutely terrible for the Knicks. Kanter is better than Chandler, and giving up Hardaway and a bunch of picks just to move Noah, while taking back garbage is a joke.

Clarkson is not a lure, Osman is more so and the pick is nice. Moving Gasol out would be great, but I think Love would be a terrible fit beside LMA.

Tough to make this deal in the offseason if neither player (Zinger obviously not) don't play again this year.
