29 May 2016 14:32:47
Bost: J Butler+ D Cousins
Chi: A Johnson+ Bradley+ #3 pick+ 1rnd pick Boston 17 (swap Nets pick) + 1rn pick Net 18
Sac:: Olynyk+ Smart+ 1rnd pick Memphis 19
sign: R Anderson
Pf: R Anderson
SG: J Butler
PG: I Thomas.
29 May 2016 14:47:09
Sacromento doesn't even let Ainge get the whole offer out of his mouth before he says no. How are two decent role players and a mid-first round pick getting you DMC?
29 May 2016 13:09:24
Bos: D Cousins
Sac: Olynyk+ #2 (Ingram)
LAL: #3 (Dunn) + 1rnd pick Nets 17 and 18
LAL: Noel+ 1rnd pick LA 2017
Philly: D Russell
The 3rd pick is useless for Boston. The two best players available are Dunn and Bender.
They already have IT and Smart, so they don't need Dunn and Bender is going to be good, but he's a prospect and need af few years. So receiving Cousins is worth giving up the Nets picks. Boston is in a win now fase.
D Cousins is propably the best center in the NBA, but he can't bring the Kings into the playoffs. Olynyk is a descent repalcement and they can rebuilt around WCS and Ingram, a potential star.
Philly has too many biggs. Noel is a restricted free agent next year, so they need to trade him this year or pay him big money next year. Simmons and Russell could give good Chemistry to that team. so giving up the LA pick is worth receiving Russell
The Lakers are not going to sign KD or LBJ and other players aren't going to make them contenders. so they should tank and rebuilt.
Giving up Ingram is a gamble, because he can become a star. But Dunn is going to be a good pointguard and the 2017 draft is going to be deep, so receiving those picks give them a future. Drafting Dunn, makes Russell tradable. So trading him for Noel (or Okafor) and returning the 17 pick is an upgrade. So LA should only resign Clarckson and keep their capspace.
29 May 2016 13:21:04
Sixers may give Noel or Lakers 2017 #1 for russell, but never both. Massive overpay.
29 May 2016 13:31:15
Don't think the Sixers do that. They have a team full of 20 year olds. If they move the LA pick it will be for an experienced guard, not another 20 year old. Colangelo is tired of the build, its time to move up in the standings.
Second, releasing that pick back to the Lakers is a big deal. Its top 3 protected next year in a deep draft and then unprotected the next year.
This league used to be about salary cap space. Now the most valuable asset might be unprotected or lightly protected 1st rounders of bad teams. That LA pick is more valuable in the league than you give credit for. Its not just a trade chip.
Also, I'm not completely sure the Lakers would want that pick back right now. Once their obligation to the Sixers expires, it triggers a first round pick to Orlando. If the obligation to the Sixers by LA expires now or next year, the Lakers lose another 1st. If it expires in 2018 as an unrestricted pick, then then the Lakers only lose 2 second rounders.
29 May 2016 14:00:22
Boston will not give up three lottery picks and a rotation player for Cousins. Boogie's value was at its highest at the All-Star break. It has gone down since then. Probably the best Boston would offer is Sullinger and Olynyk, plus 16 and 23.
PS -- The Celtics do not own the Nets' 2017 pick. They have the right to swap picks.
29 May 2016 14:52:22
you think you could get DMC for two mid-round firsts and two roll players Supercollider? I know his value has dropped some, but you're still talking about one of the 10 best talents in the NBA.
29 May 2016 14:54:35
2019 first round draft pick from L. A. Lakers
If the L. A. Lakers convey a 1st round pick to Philadelphia in 2017, then the L. A. Lakers' 2019 1st round pick to Orlando; if the L. A. Lakers do not convey a 1st round pick to Philadelphia in 2017, then the L. A. Lakers will instead convey their 2017 2nd round pick and 2018 2nd round pick to Orlando [L. A. Lakers-Orlando, 8/ 10/ 2012].
29 May 2016 15:58:21
I like the Sixers trade. La gets a young rim protector. Philly gets an underperforming pg who hopefully still has upside.
29 May 2016 16:14:39
Gasupo: There has to be a two year gap between traded first round picks. So the Orlando trade depends on when the Lakers obligation to the Sixers takes place.
If the Sixers trade that pick back to the Lakers, the obligation is over. At that point, the Orlando trade kicks in.
What you copied and pasted there does not take into consideration that the Sixers trade the pick back to the Lakers.
So if the Sixers trade that pick back today, then Orlando gets the Lakers pick in 2017 (I think) and if the Sixers trade that pick back after the pick is used then Orlando gets the Lakers pick next year.
The Lakers cannot be void first round picks two consecutive years (Stepien rule) . That's how the Orlando trade is designed.
29 May 2016 06:17:48
Cleveland trades: Thompson, Shumpert, Smith, 2018 first round pick
New York Knicks: Anthony, Calderon
Since Delly has to be a sign and trade an agreement of Dellavedova for Lopez. He doesn't really fit their current plan of rebuilding.
Sign Biyombo and Jeff Green and Brandon Jennings
Biyombo around 10-12
So after all said and done
Pg: Jennings, Delly, Grant,
Sg: Smith, Shumpert, Wroten
SF: Green, Early, Thomas
Pf: Porzingis, Williams, O'Quinn
C: Thompson, Biyombo
Cavs sign Varejao, Jason Terry, Chris Anderson ( all players who would play for min and Lebrons favs)
Pg: Irving, Calderon, Williams
Sg: Lebron, Terry, McRae
SF: Anthony, Jefferson
PF: Love, Frye
C: Lopez, Varejao, Anderson, Kahn.
29 May 2016 07:21:00
Fairly sneaky way to get Melo without giving up Love. Well sounds great on paper but there is only one ball and you can only have so many superstars. Melo's game is pretty one dimensional (just score) which I don't think Cavs particularly need given their big 3 (If they moved Love in a deal to get him that's another story) . In this trade they are giving up basically all their key role players. With the 4 big salaries they'd likely not be able to acquire decent depth. Therefore I don't like this trade at all.
29 May 2016 07:50:26
Jaw457 I would love to agree with you but I feel those 4 already know how to play together and have been playing together for years with Team USA. So chemistry between those 4 would be there. Lopez is a good defensive presence and would only be used as such. My thought is with those 4 most of the time those 4 will shoot or have the ball in their hands so there isn't much need for a ton of depth. I agree it is a concern after the trade and in my books as well but Lebron who knows can pull in free agents and a lot of veteran who want a shot at a title will sign. The 3 I picked is just potential fits due to age of connection to Lebron. Any ways I understand the concerns.
29 May 2016 08:50:57
Delly for Lopez is a bad trade. Delly is probably a back up pg and Lopez is a good starter. Probably salaries won't work withouth other players and/ or picks. You also want to pay too much for J. Green and B. Jennings. Anything beyond 12 and 8-10 is a bad trade. Bismack may get more cause some teams are lacking a defensive 5 and they will pay him big money even around 15 mil/ per year. If NYK will have Porzingis and Thompson they may not need Biyombo. It is a probability yet Porzingis may start playing 5 in 1 or 2 years. Thompson is a good help defender and can run around after pf. They could be a nice duo soo maybe it would be better to put the money not in another 5.
29 May 2016 14:29:45
Hey jaw. Melo averaged about as many rebounds and assists as durant. Is durants game one dimensional?
29 May 2016 14:56:24
Dear lord, how is this rebuilding for the Knicks. J. R. Smith? Jeff Green? Brandon Jennings? If Jackson gives Green $12-15M a year, I think we can start questioning his sanity.
29 May 2016 17:53:05
Boo Knicks get robbed.
29 May 2016 01:58:05
Afflalo and Williams Opt Out

What do you guys think?
29 May 2016 08:59:59
Too much for Teague. He is good but would rather go with the young guys. If it would just take R. Lopez and a 2rd pick it could be a deal. Grant - could give him but not that willingly (we need to develop players) . Thomas and O'quinn I would keep. Teague has one year left on a good contract and then he would want to earn big and he may be not worth a max that will be around 30 mil/ per year.
29 May 2016 01:17:53
Toronto and Knicks
Raptors aqquire Carmelo Anthony
Knicks aqquire 2016 1 round (Knicks),2017 1 round (clippers) and Demarre Carroll
Raptors aqquire a possible PF and Knicks get a young SF and picks.
Raptors sign Nicolas Batum.
29 May 2016 02:05:55
Legit zero chance Melo agrees to go to Canada.
29 May 2016 02:55:04
I like it alot. Based upon other trades I've seen on this site people will say that's not enough for Melo. I think it is cause his contract, he cannot carry a team like Lebron or Dwade and I don't think Knicks have that many options to trade him. They obviously aren't going anywhere with him so they should trade him to get young guys and build around Porzingis. If Afflalo accepts his option I'd include him and Include Ross from raptors.
28 May 2016 18:53:01

Kings get: Henson, #10,Middleton, Parker
10. Clippers get: Valenciunas, Carroll
Raptors get: D. Jordan.
28 May 2016 19:00:16
These trades are foolish at best. #1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 10 are just beyond nonsensical. The others just make no sense.
Perfect case. the bucks give up the future. for cousins? Why? So the team has giannis, cousins and monroe? Its just nonsense. Can you think these out before posting. Please? We know you do all this junk in order to sneak in some ridiculous magic trades. but at least put some effort in.
28 May 2016 19:38:35
the fact that he puts George trade at number 8 for us to not really see but actually that's the 1st thing i look for.
28 May 2016 22:41:01
Why would the bucks do that?
29 May 2016 00:28:29
Trades 2,3,4,9 are not going to happen.
28 May 2016 17:01:12

Bazemore/ Prince (#21)

28 May 2016 17:12:22
I'm assuming you mean the #12 jazz pick, Bucks have pick #10. But Jazz say no to this deal.
28 May 2016 17:34:04
The value is ok, but the Jazz shouldn't trade young players for older.
28 May 2016 19:35:28
Jazz getting robbed. They could really use Teague but idk if he's worth much more than the two draft picks, if that.
28 May 2016 15:40:52
Clippers - Raptors - Knicks
Clippers - Anthony, Patterson
Raptors - Griffin, Lopez

Knicks - Carroll, Valanciunas, 9th pick, 25th pick

stretch Calderon sign Jennings
28 May 2016 16:29:06
No need for the raptors. the knicks and clippers would make the simple deal of anthony for griffin with a few extras to complete the deal. Knicks have no need for carroll or valanciunas.
28 May 2016 16:56:28
Tor should also give som future picks
17 pickk to the Knicks
19 pick to LA.
28 May 2016 21:18:23
I think this trade makes a lot of sense.
28 May 2016 14:14:41
Kings - Sixers - Celtics
Kings - Noel, Smart, 24th, 26th pick
Sixers - 3rd pick, McLemore
Celtics - Cauley-Stein, 8th pick, Covington
28 May 2016 16:36:59
The Celtics will not give up the #3 unless Cousins is in the deal.
28 May 2016 07:41:41
Long before the Cavaliers made the NBA FInals and began to gel so well together the way they have been in this year's playoffs, there were major rumors flying around that a major re-tooling was needed in Cleveland involving either Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving or possibly both changing sceneries. It was looking more and more likely that the two of them didn't have the mental toughness or capacity to help LeBron win another championship. Well things seem to have changed since then, however, should the Cavaliers lose in convincing fashion to either the Thunder or the Warriors in the finals, those re-tooling talks, as unnecessary and unlikely that they are, might start back up again. Here are a few combo trades for the Cavaliers to consider shall the unlikely talks start back up again:
Cleveland Cavaliers get: Jeff Teague and Paul Millsap
Atlanta Hawks get: Tristan Thompson and Kyrie Irving
Cleveland Cavaliers get: Marc Gasol
Memphis Grizzlies get: Kevin Love
Granted, these two trades would be dependent on whether the Hawks re-sign Al Horford and whether the Grizzlies re-sign Mike Conley. If either should occur, it's unlikely that either the Hawks nor the Grizzlies would be willing to give up their star players, regardless of the fact that they would be getting a star in return. However, if Horford and Conley don't re-sign with their current teams, these two trades would be smart for the Cavaliers to consider. They would get a fairly young point guard to control the offense effectively and two excellent two-way big men who can score and distribute effectively on offense and defend the post on the defensive end of the court. Both men are 31 so they are not exactly spring chicken, but they are young enough to team up with James over the next 4-5 years in an effort to help him win a championship before his prime years expire.
Cleveland Cavaliers get: Carmelo Anthony
New York Knicks get: Kevin Love
Cleveland Cavaliers get: Chris Paul
Los Angeles Clippers get: Kyrie Irving
Put all the "SuperFriends SuperTeam" off to the side, these two trades would make a lot of sense for all the teams involved. First of all, the Knicks and Clippers would get younger with Love and Irving. Second of all, the Clippers would continue to compete over the next few years with Irving running the offense. Finally, the Cavaliers would get arguably the best playmaking point guard in the league along with arguably the most productive scorer in the league not named Curry. Similar to the first option, both Paul and Anthony are older than Irving and Love, but with age comes experience, and I'm sure James would be honored to be playing and attempting to win a few more championships alongside his two close friends, especially if they figured out a way for the fourth friend to join them in Cleveland.

28 May 2016 01:43:53
No way the Celtics take Anthony. They don't play iso-ball.
28 May 2016 07:32:21
No way the Knicks trade Anthony and Lopez for that collection of garbage picks and role players.
27 May 2016 21:10:14
Boston gets Jimmy Butler
Chicago gets 3rd overall pick, olynyk, crowder and additional 1st rounder (s)
Boston gets a true star in Butler who along with smart and Bradley would make an absolutely amazing defense, Butler also gives the Celtics a one-two punch with him and Thomas.
Rose and Butler did not work well together last year. Also the ceiling of this current team is not a contender. With Crowder, Olynyk the additional pick (s) and the 3rd overall pick, the Bulls get players who better fit hoibergs offense and provide a better future for the Bulls.
27 May 2016 21:27:05
If it was Smart I would do the deal, also depending if those additional 1st don't include the Brooklyn or Memphis picks.
27 May 2016 17:33:25
Potential knicks off season.
Assume Afflalo and Williams opt out.
That puts them at 60million, including the cap holds for early and galloway.
Ideally, i'd say try and trade oquinn and calderon for non-guarenteed crap, that would open up another 11.6 million. Not realistic though. Probably could trade Oquinn and then stretch calderon.
This would give approximately 50million in payroll.
So the knicks have Porzingis, Melo, Lopez, Grant, Early, Gallow, Wroten and 42million in cap space.
I would give 4 x 20 to batum
I would give 3 x 13 to Rondo
Then you have about 9 million left to spread among the final 3 players. I mean, even if you don't get rid of OQuinn or stretch Calderon. this is still possilbe and likely the best scenerio.
That is a solid rotation.
27 May 2016 18:23:49
Rondo would be perfect for Porzingis but not so sure how he would fit with Melo as both need the ball to be effective.
27 May 2016 18:25:01
Maybe try trading melo but just not sure if you can get anything of value for a declining player getting paid $25 mil for the next 4 years.
27 May 2016 20:56:48
1st - melo and rondo would be great. Rondo doesn't shoot much at all. He is actually the exact type of pg that would work great with melo. Get him the ball in the spots he needs it to be gotten. No issues there.
2nd - Melo has max, 3 years left on the contract. There is an ETO after the 2nd year. so yeah, not really that daughnting. On top of this. declining how? He averaged 22 pts a game, while having the second best rebounding year of his career, the best passing/ assist year of his career. If you are going to say declining because his points dropped to 13th in the league. ok. but you probably shoudl take into account that all the rest of his game was more team oriented and he had the worst pg play of his career. Which matters when trying to score.
Knicks would be perfectly wise to keep melo, build around porzingis, and snag 1 or two upp[er level FA and they are right in the picture again.
27 May 2016 21:34:05
That is realistic Mike. Like that you post your own idea. Finally.
28 May 2016 00:25:09
I've posted my own ideas before. Just not too many trade options going on. If you actually pay attention. It's usually just the same people restating the same trade. Every day. If you want I'll just repost this every other day if that'll appease you If not. I'll stick to occasional posts when actual events happen to make them plausible. Thanks.
28 May 2016 00:43:26
Why would the Knickes trade O'Quinn? He's on a cheap contract and he's young.
26 May 2016 22:44:56
Knicks - Celtics
Knicks trade: Carmelo Anthony
Celtics trade: Marcus Smart, Jae Crowder, #16 pick and #23 pick.
26 May 2016 23:19:48
Anthony is a ball hog.
Danny Ainge would be run out of town if he traded two starters and two No.1s for him.
26 May 2016 23:31:47
i'm a Celtics fan and not a chance they do this and not a chance anyone in boston wants to see Carmelo on their home floor!
26 May 2016 23:45:16
I think that's too much for Melo. I think he'd be a great fit in Boston but I think his value isn't great for a superstar on the wrong side of 30 who has shown he can't carry a team, doesn't play much defense and does a lot of iso stuff. I also don't see Knicks getting many more offers from other teams since most teams are looking for younger superstars. If this truly is Melo's value then Celtics are better off going for one of those younger superstars like George or Butler.
27 May 2016 00:09:08
Melo is worth about half that package.
27 May 2016 13:27:40
With that said he be your best player since Paul Pierce. Those other player don't attract TOP TIER FAs unless C's overpaid for them But Smrt contract is favorable. Bradley makes more sense from C's POV.
27 May 2016 14:05:32
I think Boston passes. Too much value going away to tkae on melo and his terrible contract.
26 May 2016 19:39:24
Suns trade Brandon Knight, TJ Warren, Archie Goodwin and 4th overall pick 2016 draft to Pacers for Paul George
Suns trade 28th and 34th pick 2016 draft to Knicks for top 10 protected 2017 1st round pick.
26 May 2016 20:03:47
Knicks can't trade their pick since they don't have one this year.
26 May 2016 20:53:53
You have to include Booker and maybe even Len.
26 May 2016 21:58:11
I believe its going to take more than that to get George. Suns definitely have assets to get him with fair amount of young assets and 3 1sts in this years draft. Idk if they have good enough pieces in place (especially after trading for him) to warrant getting him however.
27 May 2016 03:54:00
Reasonably sure PHX won't move Booker in any deal. not even for George. Agree that teams such as Boston can put together a more enticing package for him that the Suns are willing to do.
26 May 2016 15:09:09
Boston Sixers Knicks
A rare situation where a inter division trade could work.
Boston trade crowder and smart
Boston get carmelo and noel
Sixers trade Noel and 24 and 26.
Sixers get crowder
Knicks trade melo
Knicks get a 24 and 26 and smart.
This seems like fair value all around to me.
26 May 2016 15:20:48
Knicks say no. They rather have crowder and smart i think.
26 May 2016 15:29:00
Celtics aren't giving enough.
26 May 2016 15:30:05
Crowder is a good fit in Philly, but i think they could get more for Noel and those picks.
I Like the Knicks rebuilding around Porzingis, trading C Anthony for young pieces and go tanking for one more year.
I Like this for Boston too. Noel is the catch and C Anthony the bonus. He could be really good in leading this team into the playoffs.
Personally i like Noel more than Okafor, so i would keep Noel and trade Okafor.
26 May 2016 15:47:51
Knicks would be lucky to get anything of value for Melo.
26 May 2016 15:48:24
Was hoping to see Smart-Noel for the 79th time.
26 May 2016 16:15:13
Guys like Crowder can be found in the second round. Celtics aren't giving enough to get two legit players.
26 May 2016 16:53:16
I will say this. If melo would limit his role a bit he can still score with the best of them. And Noel at center is the complimentary center piece that group of Thomas, Bradley, melo, and sullinger could use.
Celtics get a great return. They really only lose smart as crowder is replaced by melo. Meanwhile the Celtics keep the third pick.
Knicks need as many young players as they can get. 24 and 26 give them two picks in the first round when they had zero before. And smart is a nice defensive guard to grow with.
Sixers get crowder who is a vet on a decent deal. He plays hard and may still have upside in a more intrigue role like hell have on the Sixers next year. They need wings and crowder is a solid option ona decent deal.
Celtic might have to give up James young or rodier to the Sixers to make the deal more fair looking back at it which I think they would do to get two guy to take them further in the playoffs.
26 May 2016 17:53:00
Sixers get #16 and it's a deal.
26 May 2016 18:35:56
I love the trade for Celtics as they're getting their defensive big and superstar go-to scorer that they've been looking for past few years. That being said they aren't giving up enough especially when you consider that they are the big winners of a trade like this happening as it checks two key boxes for them. I also think that if Celtics were going to go for Anthony they might as well go all in and trade the 3rd pick instead of Crowder who is a gritty, very versatile 3-D type player that could be a key cog for the team. I think some of their young guys (Hunter, Rozier, Young, Mickey, Olynk) could be attractive to rebuilding teams like Knicks without Melo and 76ers. I'm not sure how much cap-space Celtics would have left but if they could get someone like Horford after this deal I think they should overpay since a lineup of Thomas, Bradley/ Crowder, Melo, Horford, Noel would be a title contender imo with a great blend of offensive (especially perimeter offense) while having great defensive flexibility. They could even play small ball with Thomas, Bradley, Crowder, Melo, Horford which would be a devastating lineup. Still decent amount of youth and Melo and Horford have style of games that should age well. Thomas, Bradley and Crowders' comically cheap contracts are the key to this.

They would not have the cap room after adding Anthony to get hortford unless then unload some cash like crowder.
Noel is a cheaper option to fill two holes in one trade. Get a defensive center and a scorer.

Knicks couldn't get smart and crowder for Anthony.
He isn't worth that. He's got to big of a contract.
Why would Boston help the Knicks out. The only way they do this deal is if they get Noel and Anthony.

MIL/ NYK/ ATL
MIL get Robin Lopez and Aaron Afflalo (assuming he doesn't opt out)
NYK Greg Monroe and Jeff Teague
ATL get MCW, Kyle Oquinn and Jerian Grant.

Knicks and Hawks should do this
Why would Milwaukee do this?
Maybe the Knicks should offer a swap option in the 2017 draft to them.
26 May 2016 16:11:12
No from Milwaukee.
26 May 2016 18:47:21
ATL will get significantly better offers for Teague imo so they wouldn't be interested in this deal. I think Robin Lopez would be a much better fit than Monroe as he can be a rim protector and solid rebounder and if you include Afflalo I like the deal for Milwaukee. Afflalo gives them much needed veteran presence and shooting as well as depth and solid defense. Monroe also makes decent sense for Knicks giving them a relatively young big man that's a scoring threat although I think it would hurt Porzingis' development as he would not get the ball as much, be relegated to perimeter more and be forced to cover Monroe a lot defensively.
26 May 2016 18:49:20
Monroe's trade value doesn't seem all that great right now (I think they're better off just keeping him) but Lopez is coming off a good year and Afflalo would make a valuable rotation player that is good in areas the Bucks lack.

Knicks realistic summer plan
Now that a Jeff Hornacek looks like he's in place as
head coach and for record I'm quite pleased with that anyone then Kurt Rambis, I would then get Patrick Ewing as his assistant coach.
Buy a 2nd round draft pick and draft a small forward
Aaron Afflalo and Derrick Williams don't use their player options
Stretch Provison Jose Calderon's last year of his contact if can't trade him for a future 2nd round pick.
Resign Lance Thomas, Derrick Williams, Sasha Vujacic and Langston Galloway
Sign Kurt Bazemore, Jamal Crawford, David Lee and Willy Hernangomez
Roster for 2016/ 17 season
Pg Wroten/ Grant/ Galloway
Sg Bazemore/ Crawford/ Vujacic
Sf Anthony/ Thomas/ Draft pick
Pf Porzingis/ Williams/ Lee
C Lopez/ O'Quinn/ Hernangomez.

Unfortunately the Knicks would still be awful.
Trade melo! If you can.
25 May 2016 14:13:19
Sounds like Hornacek will want to run more, so I would rather see a high tempo Point Guard than Bazemore. I don't know that Wroten is a PG, I feel like he would be better suited in a Jamal Crawford type roll. I'm not saying what you have above isn't reasonable though, I think it could be a realistic offseason for the Knicks.
25 May 2016 15:18:41
It's realistic, but they should trade Melo.
25 May 2016 15:48:43
Not bad. Only thing is need a pg. should have cap to snag a pg like Jennings or rondo. Definitely a playoff contender at least.
26 May 2016 02:41:00
Pretty underwhelming offseason and I'm not sure if this is enough to get them in the playoffs. However, I think its pretty realistic as Knicks aren't going to make any noise unless they move Porzingis or Melo.
