If Phil Jackson can get Favors and Exum for Anthony, they should name the Executive the Year award after him and retire the trophy.
The return is ridiculous, and the only way to get Anthony to go to Salt Lake City is with a unmarked van and large amount of duct tape.

I don't get why everyone wants Boston to trade for George when his is 100000% a rental and is just looking ahead to next offseason and not focused on winning now with whatever team he is on. I would much rather have Tatum Crowder and the pick (s) we got from Philly than a rental player that doesn't even want to be there. I am one that loves youth and developing players and I strongly believe that one day Tatum will become a player on PG13's level also if you can get that while he is one a nice affordable deal why would you trade that away along with another player on a team friendly deal in Crowder and a potential top 5 pick for a guy that you have no shot at resigning. I mean if he promises to sign an extension I am all for this trade but we know that's not going to happen so I would much rather have the Celtics be quiet on the trade front this offseason and let guys like Zeller and Green go and free up enough money to get Heyward and have a lineup of IT Bradley Hayward Crowder and Horford with Smart Brown Taytum Olynyk Rozier and some other guys coming off the bench.

24 Jun 2017 16:57:12
CS13, I started the post by saying this only works if george agrees to an extension. Obviously the Celtics aren't making this trade if there is even the smallest chance of George leaving next offseason. George said he prefers LA, but I think he just wants to be on a contender and not in Indiana. He can get that in Boston. Reports are saying that if Hayward signs with Boston, George will agree to an extension so the Celtics could trade for him. That is absolutely the best case for Boston. Get Hayward and George in their primes and keep Brown and still have brooklyns pick next year to build through the draft.

Sixers get Noah Porzingis
Knicks get the 2 remaining of the Sixers/ Lakers/ Kings pick (whichever don't convey w no protections), Okafor, Anderson, rights to Pasecnicks

Sixers trade 2 future seconds and Stauskas for Danny Green (Spurs looking to shed salary)

Sign Taj Gibson, Tony Allen, and Vince Carter as vets to teach the young roster

Fultz/ McConnel
Green/ Allen/ TLC
Simmons/ Covington/ Carter
Porzingis/ Saric/ Gibson
Embiid/ Noah/ Holmes

23 Jun 2017 18:48:24
That will never get sixers Porzingis.

23 Jun 2017 21:08:59
Not enough.

23 Jun 2017 21:33:27
If I'm the Sixers, and I'm looking to get someone of Porzingis' caliber, I think I'd go SG or SF instead of PF. You already have Saric if you're high on him, and I think Simmons is probably best suited to bulk up a bit and play at PF. He can shoot a little from outside (right now a very little), but does most of his damage on drives and with his passing. I see him eventually turning into a very rich man's Diaw, which should pair very well with Embiid and Fultz. He can be a post pivot guy in an old school offense, or he can facilitate from the top of the key as Al Horford did a lot in the Boston series against Washington. Your stats are likely to come from the other two guys, while Simmons does a lot of the little things you won't see in a newspaper.

23 Jun 2017 14:34:16
Knicks and raptors

Raptors trade JV, Powell and two first round picks

Knick trade prozingis.

Raptors Starters

Resign Lowry Ibaka and tucker


Role players
OG anunoby when ready
Sign Amir for vet min
Siakam poetle and Bebe.
Sign heslip for a shooter

23 Jun 2017 15:52:16
If Knicks are foolish enough to deal Porzingis I think they would be at least wise enough to get young assets not older players who Porzingis is already better than and draft picks that won't be too valuable since Raptors should be a playoff team for forseeable future.

Raptors are reportedly looking to deal Valanciunas. Not sure what they are looking for but maybe putting a similar offer together for Jordan if Paul and Griffin leaves would be a wise move.

23 Jun 2017 16:05:06
They aren't resigning Ibaka.

23 Jun 2017 07:55:57
Spurs Cavaliers NYK

Spurs receive
2019 second round pick (Cavs)

Knicks receive
Cedi Osman
2020 second round pick (Cavs)

Cavs receive

23 Jun 2017 12:48:06
Not really a fan of this trade for any of the teams. Aldridge reportedly wants out of SA since they aren't using him right when the reality is he is aging and not as good as he used to be. Spurs would be wise to shop him but I think what they'd primarily want in dealing him would be cap relief so they could pursue a top FA. They don't get this in the trade nor do they get a #2 offensive option to replace Aldridge's scoring which would make Kawhi's life that much more difficult.

This may be the best Knicks can hope for with Melo (taking back minimal salary) but I don't like it since he is still a prolific scorer and not the problem in NY. The Knicks need to address the true issue which is Phil Jackson who for some reason is trying to get rid of all their talent in Melo and Porzingis.

The Cavs can't do this for salary reasons but I don't like it for basketball reasons. Getting Green would be great but I'd hate to add Aldridge and Anthony to that roster. Both are very good players but only on the offensive end which isn't where Cavs need help and they certainly don't need both if they are keeping Love. Cavs also got dominated on the boards against Warriors and lose their best rebounder in Thompson who is also a great pick and roll defender. Aldridge has always been extremely soft player on the interior and would be an ill fit at center (which he'd be forced to play in this scenario) and Melo would probably be just a guy who gets you buckets off the bench.

24 Jun 2017 06:27:01
Stop your corny.

23 Jun 2017 07:49:27

MIN : K.Porzingis + W.Chandler + J.Noah

PG : R.Rubio-T.Jones
SG : J.Butler-FA
SF : W.Chandler-O.Casspi
PF : K.Porzingis-J.Patton
CE : K.Towns-J.Noah-C.Aldrich

DEN : S.Muhammad (st) + 2020 MIN 1st round pick

NYK : A.Wiggins + K.Faried + 2018 1st round pick MIN + 2nd round pick MIN + G.Dieng

PG : F.Nkitilina-R.Baker
SG : A.Wiggins-C.Lee
SF : C.Anthony-L.Thomas
PF : K.Faried-G.Dieng
CE : W.Hernangomez-K.Oquinn

23 Jun 2017 12:57:25
Minnesota has made one great big move already and I think this one would help even more. The one downside of their current team is lack of shooting. Adding Porzingis and Chandler helps with this. Wiggins is good but not at level of Porzingis who is a unique talent that if paired with Towns would be an utterly unfair duo that no team would be able to matchup against with two 7 footers who can step out to 3pt line and kill you on both ends of the court. Twolves don't have to do this trade and they'd be alright without it (could use cap space to add some additional talent) but I think that duo or Porzingis and KAT would be a game-changer and a move that could end this "small-ball era" and break the league in a few years.

For the Knicks I think they'd be foolish to move Porzingis and although Wiggins is a good center piece, they add two soid bigs in Faried and Dieng and clear Noah's contract I don't like it for them.

Don't like it for Denver either. That pick is not only far off but would be a late first likely and Muhammad doesn't give you much.

23 Jun 2017 13:07:38
2018 Wolves pick is going to the Hawks, assuming they make the playoffs.

23 Jun 2017 14:26:45
I don't know if Denver is getting enough, but the bones of the trade aren't bad.

If NY is dead set on getting rid of Porzingis, this is a pretty decent haul, but I think I'd like to see Wiggins with a year playing and training with Butler under his belt before I move him if I'm Minny. He trained with Jaylen Brown before this season, and his all around game was a ton better than I think anyone in Boston was expecting. If Wiggins' mental game and competitive nature is in that same ballpark, I think he could make a great leap.

Porzingis is the ideal player type to set up next to KAT, but they might be able to find a similar style player in free agency like Ibaka. Either way, Minny is exciting now.

24 Jun 2017 06:28:48
Interesting but no from ny.

22 Jun 2017 23:29:19
Knicks: Batum
charlotte: C Anthony+ D Green
Spurs: Kaminski+ Sessions

Charlotte signs Rondo and Reddick

C: D Howard/Zeller
PF:C Anthony/ M Williams
SF: D Green/ MKG
SG: Reddick/ Lamb
Pg: Walker/Rondo

23 Jun 2017 11:36:27
Love that trade for the Knicks, but Charlotte takes it on the chin. Charlotte would be better off making the FA signings and calling it a day. Batum is the best player in the deal by far.

23 Jun 2017 14:59:23
I don't hate it for Charlotte. I know you have a deep seeded hate for Melo, but he's still a very productive player in the right situation. Charlotte very well could be that situation. They can put him at the 4 next to Howard who is a fantastic complement to his game, or they could go huge and slide him to the 3 with Howard and Aldrich. With Monk and Bacon now in the fold, they have no lack of scoring options on the wing and in the backcourt, while they have a couple of big bodies to man the boards.

22 Jun 2017 22:22:56

Twolves get Jimmy Butler, #38 pick (via Bulls), #44 pick (via Knicks), Kyle O'Quinn, and M. Kuzminskas
38- Alec Peters
44- Thomas Bryant
-Sign Jrue Holiday 3yr 70m
-Sign Justin Holiday 2yr 20m
PG: Holiday, Dunn, Jones
SG: LaVine, Holiday
SF: Butler, Kuzminskas, Peters
PF: Dieng, Bjelica
C: Towns, O'Quinn, Bryant

Bulls get Andrew Wiggins and #7 pick

Knicks get Ricky Rubio and Cole Aldrich.

23 Jun 2017 00:38:22
I wouldn't give Chicago Wiggins and no 7 pick without getting pick 16 back as well.

And Wolves don't want Knicks junk for Rubio.

23 Jun 2017 00:51:00
Lavine, Dunn, and the 7th for Butler just happened. Great trade for Minnesota.

22 Jun 2017 20:49:07
Knicks asking for #3, 2018 Brooklyn pick, Crowder, Brown for Porzingis

22 Jun 2017 20:55:47
Still wouldn't trade porzingus for this.

22 Jun 2017 21:57:53
That's ok, Boston won't trade that for Porzingis.

22 Jun 2017 18:49:39
Detroit trade Drummond, Johnson, Jackson
Receive Porzingis, Deng, Noah, #8, #27

(Detroit takes 2 of the worst contracts in the league to build around Zinger with a few picks. The rebuild should happen fast. By the time these guys are expiring it's time to pay the kids.) draft Smith 8, Collins 12, heart 27.

New York trades Porzingis, Noah, #8
Receive Drummond, johnson, #28

(KNicks still have cap space to lure a pg to lead them to the playoffs and if melo leaves/traded they can sign another star.) draft swannigan 28 who will fit in with a slower pace and add shooting.

Lakers trade deng, #27, #28
Receive Jackson

(Lakers are going to get George either way. Why not add his bff to play point until Ball is ready to "Ball"? They also shed salery in this trade to help land another vet with PG.)

22 Jun 2017 19:06:00
Bad for the Knicks and Lakers.

22 Jun 2017 17:52:24
Knicks - Celtics

NYK get #3 pick (Josh Jackson)

BOS gets #8 pick, Melo.

22 Jun 2017 18:06:31
I would like to think that this is viable because Boston would get the scoring help they need with IT and NYK can shed Melo's unhappy self and contract and get Josh Jackson who they have raved about since his workout. Being a Knicks fan, maybe I am too biased to see the downside of this.

22 Jun 2017 18:12:54
Boston doesn't have enough cap space to absorb Melo's salary like that.

22 Jun 2017 18:53:17
I am not disputing the CAP space issue but am wondering how they were going to do it during the season when it was discussed at the trade deadline. Sigh, wishful thinking I suppose. I don't want to give up KP. Can we trade Dolan and Jackson for the #4 pick? They do nothing but save us cap space by running off all of our all-star players.

22 Jun 2017 19:12:52
Boston turns that down. They have a chance at Heyward, Griffin and a few other free agents. I doubt a trade happens unless they strike out in free agency first or they get a big offer for Crowder or Bradley. Even then you have to think Butler and George would be their first option. Melo is at best a worse case scenario move for them.

22 Jun 2017 19:47:57
No chance of that deal. Anthony's value for any team that wants him and his monster contract is a first-rounder from the late teens to mid-20s.

22 Jun 2017 23:46:06
I was thinking about this earlier as well. It doesn't seem entirely unrealistic. Hayward is questioning whether to even leave. Butler isn't going to the Celtics. If ainge thinks they can't get either of those 2, which at this point, it seems likely. this isn't an AWFUL trade. Knicks make out better, but at least it gives the celtics a chance to add a second scoring option and potentially get Smith.

22 Jun 2017 17:36:01
I think they NYK would be insane to trade KP, and I think BOS would be insane tonnit try and get him.

NYK: J Brown, #3, 2018 BKN pick

BOS: K Porzingas

22 Jun 2017 18:28:34
Zinger is really good but that's just to much for him.2 lotential too 3 pics.

22 Jun 2017 19:16:17
Goatface, that seems like a reasonable asking price. The only big in the game with more upside than Porzingis is possibly Towns.

22 Jun 2017 19:37:17
Embiid has more upside then both of them, but then again I'm a homer.

I think brown should be replaced with smart or Bradley in this scenario or something else should go to boston.

22 Jun 2017 19:43:50
It's rumored Knicks are asking exactly for that package PLUS Crowder.

Celtics should counter without including Crowder and get it done. If they can Sign Hayward, that would be a very good team

IT/ Rozier
Bradley/ Smart
Hayward/ Crowder
Horford/ Olynyk/
Zinger/ Zeller.

22 Jun 2017 23:48:44
Agreed, porzingis is legit a top 5, probably top 3, prospect to build around at this point. He has an incredibly diverse offensive game, great rebounder, and what seems to get not as much attention, he is already considered an elite big man defender.

Boston is looking for a missing pioece. They aren't trying to build for 5 years from now. They would be willing to sacrifice the picks, especially seeing as they have a bevy of others in the future.

For the knicks. i'd say no. i'd prefer just keeping Porzingis, bunch him with hopefully smith, and then wait out the removal of melo ina year or two, and noah can be stretched.

22 Jun 2017 16:48:45
Boston: Porzingis
Knicks: Griffin, Wes Johnson, 3rd pick, 2018 nets pick
Clippers: Carmelo, Crowder

Hayward or Brown if can't sign Hayward

Knicks (pick Jackson and Ntilkina) :


22 Jun 2017 16:58:11
No way does Boston give up that fortune for Porzingis, Ainge is too frugal.

22 Jun 2017 17:02:09
Sounds reasonable, but Boston will fight off any attempt to get that 2018 Brooklyn pick. Celts would offer another rotation body (Rozier maybe) or their own 2018 No. 1.
Rest of the proposal does make sense.

22 Jun 2017 17:21:09
If you include the 2018 Lakers pick instead of the Brooklyn pick, maybe.

22 Jun 2017 18:17:40
DA would throw all of the other picks in before that Nets pick I think. He does have the Memphis, LAC, and his own picks over the next couple of years. There might be enough bulk in addition to Crowder and #3 to get it done while keeping the Nets and Lakers/ Kings pick for the future.

22 Jun 2017 16:36:43

PHX gets Porzingis and Noah

NYK gets Warren+Bledsoe+#4

22 Jun 2017 16:35:36
Bulls get Carmelo Anthony and the 8th overall pick

Knicks get Jimmy Butler and Cameron Payne

The Knicks acquire a legit star in his prime to pair with Kristaps. This move would make the Knicks a free agency destination in 2018 and beyond.

The Bulls land a top ten pick in a loaded class for their star player while still staying relevant with the addition of Melo.
-Draft Lauri Markkanen
-Let Rondo and Mirotic walk
-Sign CP3 to a two year deal with a second year player option

C: Robin Lopez
PF: Lauri Markkanen
SF: Carmelo Anthony
SG: Dwyane Wade
PG: Chris Paul

Then in the summer of 2018, both Wade and CP3 can become free agents to create the necessary cap space to sign LeBron. The Super Friends then chase the first championship in Chicago since MJ.

22 Jun 2017 16:41:33
Why would the Bulls want Melo if they don't have Butler?

22 Jun 2017 16:51:54
@rkenne_16 they'd want Melo because he's best friends with Wade, LBJ, and CP3. Those four players want to be on the same team as each other badly, so having two of the four in Melo and Wade makes it more likely for the Bulls to land CP3 and LBJ.

22 Jun 2017 17:43:38
I don't see Lebron wanting to play with a team he can't win a championship on. He said it one time in passing that it would be cool at the end of their careers if they could play together. It's never going to happen.

22 Jun 2017 18:15:48
I'd say LeBron has a better chance of winning a chip on that team than with the Cavs current roster.

22 Jun 2017 19:27:02
Rerur, how so? Love is better and younger than Melo and Melo has been declining. I'd give Paul the edge over Irving, but only slightly and two years from now that's probably not the case. Wade has fallen off a cliff the past two years. He's arguably not a top 10 shooting guard at this point. Their playing styles don't mesh well. They are all ball dominant player and those 4 would cap you out.

22 Jun 2017 16:19:55
Trade proposal:
Mavs, Wolves and Knicks
Mavs trade: Wes, Harris,Seth, Mejri, 9th pick
Wolves trade: Rubio, Payne and 7th pick
Knicks: Trade Porzingas

Mavs get: Rubio and Porzingas
Wolves get: Wes, Harris, Mejri
Knicks get: Seth, Payne, 7th pick and 9th pick

Wolves get the defense they want and a veteran to train their youngsters
Knicks get picks for a rebuild
Mavs get their win now future

22 Jun 2017 16:29:57
This is so bad for Minnesota and New York it's not even funny.

22 Jun 2017 23:36:09
Is this a joke Mavs fan? So the mavs give away 4 relatively inefficient and worthless pieces. they receive a solid starting pg and a top 5 young player?

Oh wait, they give up the 9th pick.

Literally no one except the Mavs benefit at all from this.

22 Jun 2017 15:58:34
Cavs get Carmelo Anthony and a second round pick

Knicks get Kevin Love

It's no secret that Phil Jackson wants Melo out of NY, he offered the Cavs a Melo-Love swap at the trade deadline in February. This time the Cavs take the deal with a second round asset included. Melo provides the Cavs with much more offensive versatility and firepower.

Cavs get Dwight Howard

Hornets get Tristan Thompson, Richard Jefferson, and NY's second round pick

Howard is exactly the kind of defensive/rebounding presence the Cavs will need against the Warriors. Dwight has flown under the radar the last few years but in my opinion he's still an elite big man.

The Hornets get a much more youthful and less expensive big man in Thompson to pair with their young point guard Kemba Walker. Thompson provides a better long term solution for the Hornets.

C: Dwight Howard
PF: LeBron James
SF: Carmelo Anthony
SG: JR Smith
PG: Kyrie Irving

22 Jun 2017 16:16:43
Love has a lot more value than Melo. That trade isn't close and as well as just saw Dwight Howard has almost no value. He really doesn't give the Cavs much more than Tristan and is a bad match up against the Warriors. He isn't as versatile as Tristan and can't guard the personality meter. The Cavs don't need that headache.

22 Jun 2017 16:20:59
Second round picks have little value.
If the Knicks are going to dump Anthony, they'd have to include the 8 pick.

22 Jun 2017 16:21:16
CAVS don't have the cap for that.

22 Jun 2017 16:47:57
You must not have watched the Hawks play this year. Howard was a role player at best. Couldn't even get on the court in the playoffs.

22 Jun 2017 14:54:01
Min - NYK
Knicks send Porzingis
Wolves send 7th , Rubio , Dieng , Jones

22 Jun 2017 16:59:17
I like the idea, but I think Lavine needs to be in it instead of Jones.

Knicks get Levine, Rubio, Deing, Dunn, and the 7th

Twolves get Porzingis and Lee.

22 Jun 2017 14:26:07

NYK- #4 pick, Brandon Knight, Dragon Bender
PHX- Kristaps Porzingis

The Suns would make a lot of sense for Porzingis. They have Booker, Bledsoe and Chriss to build around. Adding Porzingis to that group can give them some serious potential in a few years.

NYK- #14 pick, Josh McRoberts
MIA- Carmelo Anthony

The Heat would like to get someone to attract LeBron next year. Melo is good friends with him and could offer a good core or Whiteside, Melo, Dragic. The Knicks shouldn't expect to get much more than a fringe Lottery pick for Melo.

4- Josh Jackson, SF
8- Dennis Smith, PG
14- Luke Kennard, SG

C- Joakim Noah/Willy Hernangomez
PF- Kyle O'Quinn/Dragon Bender
SF- Josh Jackson/Josh McRoberts
SG- Courtney Lee/Luke Kennard
PG- Brandon Knight/Dennis Smith

This gives the Knicks some young players to build around and salary to offer Max contracts to upcoming FA. The Knicks need a rebuild and this would be the only way it makes sense to me.

22 Jun 2017 14:53:15
Put in bledsoe instead of knight and its a good trade.

22 Jun 2017 15:25:27
I don't understand how moving 21 yr old Porzingis who has proven himself to be a potential superstar makes Knicks better. He is probably one of the better young building blocks in NBA so I think its foolish to deal him away for Bender (who has looked like a bust thus far) and #4 pick (I think Jacksons gone by then so its Tatum who I think is safer option but doesn't have as much upside) and Knight who doesn't look the same after his injury.

22 Jun 2017 11:30:29
Wolves trade Wiggins, LaVine, Rubio, Dieng, 7th pick
Wolves get Porzingis, Bledsoe, Butler, Warren

Suns trade 4th pick, Bledsoe, Warren
Suns get Wiggins, Valentine

Knicks trade Porzingis, Anthony
Knicks get 4th pick, Rubio, Dieng

Bulls trade Butler, Valentine
Bulls get 7th pick, Anthony, LaVine(use trade exception)

- Porzingis and Towns both elite shooting for big men -> stretch the floor while both have the ability to block shots at a high rate (2-way-potential)
- Bledsoe and Butler bring veteran experience, better defense and shooting
- All player around Towns and Porzingis will playing better, also Butler, Bledsoe and especially Warren

- get their 2nd go-to-go in Wiggins to pair with Booker
- let Ullis run the show, Knight backing him up
- fastest team in NBA

- what Phil Jackson said? 2 starter and a top5 pick for Porzingis?
- Knicks draft 2 athletic wings to go into future (Jackson + Monk)
- add pass-first PG Rubio and solid PF/C Dieng, both still with some room to develop

- huge cap space (Wade, Rondo, Anthony) in 2018
- get current replacement for Butler in Anthony (yeah not equal) and very promising future assets in LaVine and 7th pick
- draft Isaac and Giles to pair with LaVine in future

22 Jun 2017 14:39:57
Awful trade for the Knicks.
