If Leonard say he will only play with the Lakers so no other will trade for him. Deng ball and Ingram plus 2 first for Leonard.

Lakers will have about 73 MIL in cap. Sign James and George 30 each. Then rest for Bradley. Use 3 Mil of mle on Noel the other 5 something back up pg Evans will be awesome.


1.) 03 May 2018 08:53:53
I think that's his normal value, he can go cheaper to LA, if he demands a trade to them.

Lakers Trade Deng and 1st for Melo


1.) 01 May 2018 01:58:36
I could actually see this happening if Melo only stayed for a year to help develop Brandon Ingram and mentor him.

2.) 01 May 2018 03:13:17
Add Kyle Singler.

3.) 01 May 2018 04:06:33
I don't think the Lakers want Melo mentoring Ingram. Deng is much better suited for that.

4.) 01 May 2018 10:12:00
There taking melo 28 mill for one year and getting rid of Deng 2 years 36 MIL. So thunder will save Ten MIL this year and get cavs pick. But will have to pay Deng 18 MIL the next but he might fit better then Melo.

If pelicans well do a cousins sign and trade for Hayward would be killer


1.) 18 Apr 2018 07:51:46
Irving, Brown, Tatum, Horford, Cousins in the East would be unstoppable.

But I don't think either the Pelicans or Boston would agree to this (Boogie's reputation as a chemistry distraction and Hayward is a big contract coming off a gruesome injury)

2.) 18 Apr 2018 14:12:57
I think they may for the reasons you just gave.

Personally, I think that DMC gets a bit of a bad wrap. Yes, he has done some dumb things, but he has looked like a much better version of himself in NO. People grow up, and maybe he's turn the corner. It's also not necessarily fair to kick his butt too hard during his time in Sacramento, that circus organization is a joke.

Yes, Hayward is coming off a major injury, but he is a much more needed fit for the Pels, who already have a dominant big man.

3.) 18 Apr 2018 15:02:47
This would be a great trade for both teams.
I would love to see boogie in Green. He's not a bad guy, he only has a bad reputaton.

4.) 18 Apr 2018 15:17:26
Both players would be great fits for the new teams, but Hayward isn't going anywhere. I think the Pelicans would be smart to do a sign and trade for Cousins, as they've shown they are probably better put together without him. He's still a star, and could be used for a guy or two who would better fit their squad. It could set up a very solid/ rare win-win trade.

5.) 18 Apr 2018 16:37:20
If I’m Boston I wouldn’t do it for two reasons:

The lineup of Irving, brown, Tatum, Hayward, and Horford has a chance to be the best lineup in the nba if brown and Tatum keep improving.

I’d take Hayward’s injury and possible recovery over Cousins. Achilles is the most serious injury in basketball.

(And third, I just wouldn’t want Cousins personality on my team. I think he’s a poor teammate on the court. Neither Sacramento or NO was better with him than without. And I’m sure I’ll get a lot that disagree, but he’s the center version of Melo to me. )

6.) 18 Apr 2018 19:45:31
Hayward is staying in Boston.

with Rozier, Smart, Morris, Theis off the bench is a championship lineup.

7.) 19 Apr 2018 19:59:23
Boogie has been awesome so far here in NOLA. I don't think this deal helps either team.



17 Apr 2018 01:18:21
So Miami can save money trade whiteside for Deng, Lakers 2020 and cavs pick.

Lakers sign James and George.
Plus have kuzma fry Hart to lead the bench


1.) 17 Apr 2018 10:50:53
I like this for Miami, but i can't see Riley trading for picks.

2.) 17 Apr 2018 12:19:06
I assume that's tongue in cheek Gasupo.



09 Apr 2018 05:09:03
Covington Lakers pick own pick saric and fultz for Leonard.

Philly then signs James. Then instead of surrounding James with shooters you surround Simmons with post players and a few shooters. Let LeBron be a post player and defender instead of power point. He have way more points and rebounds with a few less assist. With more rings. They can 4 peat.


1.) 09 Apr 2018 05:23:33
The trade offering is adequate, I still think K. Leonard is in control because of where he will sign his extension with. I think it's L. A. If he goes anywhere.

2.) 09 Apr 2018 08:32:52
James embiid Simmons and Leonard is no fair plus with decent role players.

3.) 09 Apr 2018 12:41:15
Jorga, I don't see the Lakers being willing to trad their young talent for Leonard. They're much better off hoping they can pull atleast George in free agency this year and then Kawhi next year while keeping their young guys. It's the only way they can compete with the Warriors.

4.) 09 Apr 2018 12:52:06
Also, to comment on the trade above. If I'm Philly, I'm not giving up more than FultZ or Covington, Saric plus the Lakers pick and maybe their own pick or some 2nds while adding Bayless. The thought the would be that they could get Lebron as well and some pieces for the bench. If they could have a line up of Simmons, Lebron, Covington, Leonard and Embiid, the Warriors are in trouble. That group can shoot pretty well, destroy you inside, and would be one of the best defensive units ever put together.

5.) 09 Apr 2018 13:17:02
Rkenne_16, I think your answering your own question. That's twice now that you have illuminated the Lakers desire to keep their young players, in your opinion. I typed L. A. So, I guess it means if Kawhi wants to play in L. A. He'll have to wait, so its unlikely he'll be traded. Unless, Spurs really want to get rid of him. Not because other teams have more to offer. Leonard is not going to the east coast. I would almost guarantee it. No one is going to pay his value, for one season only.

6.) 09 Apr 2018 13:43:21
Have you seen media speculation about that? Other than he's from the West Coast? The only thing I've seen is that he wants a bigger shoe deal. I feel like, Boston, Philly, New York, Or even playing with Lebron could up media presence and get him a bigger shoe deal just as much as LA could. Hell even just an being with an organization that let's its players talk to the media would help.

7.) 09 Apr 2018 13:48:56
The same thing was said about Paul George. Teams still lined up to trade for him. After this season, I could see SA going the vindictive route and trading him to anywhere but his preferred destination.

8.) 09 Apr 2018 13:51:08
The issue with the Sixers getting Leonard is it throws yet another major injury risk into the equation. Leonard and Embiid are all but guaranteed to miss 25% or more of the season. Just too unreliable health wise to be involved with heath concerns already on the team. At least my thoughts.

9.) 09 Apr 2018 15:40:56
I know if I wanted a bigger shoe deal, I was injured, and was going to miss the playoffs, a good little rumor would keep my name relevant, and in the media cycle. Couldn't hurt anyway. 1 year rental V. S. Rest of his career is a huge difference in the value Spurs would receieve. Even if the re-sign teams are poorer than those of the rental class. Maybe the Spurs are the most genius media team, and your buying the media hype saying they blackball the media? This thread and many other media sources have been dedicated to this for over a month. Pretty clever I'd say.

10.) 09 Apr 2018 20:56:20
I just don't see this as media coverage that's helping his value. He went from being a quiet guy to a malcontent player that might be soft and still hasn't really show any personality. I'm sure this season is tanking his jersey sales, which probably is a number brought up during negotiations of shoe deals since it gives a monetary expression of popularity.

Being in a system that doesn't come off as inherently boring and robotic and being with a team that gives you more freedom to express yourself could do wonders for viability when in comes to endorsements. Think of how much is profile would be raised if he could bring a title to LA or Boston or winning a title next to Lebron against the Warriors basketball death machine (what they won and he outplayed Lebron and got the Finals MVP) .

The Spurs even with Leonard aren't winning a title soon without a huge move or a ton of luck. Plus, the team has basically been calling him soft. I don't see how you fix it at this point and with the return that the aspire would get for him, it might be best for both parties if they parted ways.

The Spurs could do a minirebuild and revamp for Pop's swansong instead of marching mediocre young players and over the hill veterans to being just good enough to get out of the 1st round or during certain years the 2nd round.

The Spurs could do a lot with an infusion of young talent plus cap space and if they could get Pop to develop that young talent it could give them success even after he retires.

11.) 09 Apr 2018 22:05:44
I think there's more to this story than that, we don't know what it is exactly, and all that has been disseminated is largely conjecture, and circumstantial. Which is usually dead wrong. Or he's simply injured and being careful. I don't see BOS giving up the pieces required to land him, due to their future potential and friendly salaries. Heyward is a better 3 point shooter anyway. BOS can use that right now.

12.) 09 Apr 2018 23:54:44
Jorga, agree that there is a lot of conjecture, but I think Parker's statement passive aggressively calling out Kawhi and Pop saying he's not coming back this year even though it seems like the possibility was/ is still there for him to play is the telling part. Plus the fact that Kawhi is working with his own medical guys in New York despite the Spurs having one of the best medical staffs in the league is the most telling part of where this thing is at. It just seems to be getting worse and both sides seem to be pushing away. I think he's gone. I agree that Boston probably wouldn't go particularly hard after him. Their focus is a dominant big.

13.) 10 Apr 2018 00:08:52
Him not playing is decreasing his value.

14.) 10 Apr 2018 03:40:32
Not playing is not helping, I whole heartedly agree, which is why I believe he is injured, or he believes he's injured. Or was injured, and re-injured, and doesn't want that to happen again. Which could have, and would have made Parker's statement, just a statement of having a similar injury. Which Parker lost his starting job, and is not looking so hot this year from last. Could be getting old, it hits PG's faster than big guys. Getting old that is. Even adding up the months, and not including the re-injury Kawhi had, the time isn't far off of Parker's. Which I think Parker is still recovering. 15 minutes a game says a lot about his recovery from his tendon injury last post season. Based on Parkers sudden decline I might get a second opinion as well. A lot we don't know about is my thought.

didn't durant take 26 instead of 36. So cousins George and James can do the same just 25 each. But for this to work Lakers would have to include Ingram to cavs.
Most the contending teams pf are no threat on offense so Melo should be safe. Like raptors Boston Philly golden state and Houston. Just would have trouble guarding Davis so Melo and James can switch positions where James guards him.
