Boston - Sacramento
bos gives up amir johnson, Bradley, olynyk, brooklyn 2018 pick, Memphis 2019 pick, 3 2nd rounders and bostons 2018 pick
sacrament gives up cousins + filler.

Boston - indy
bos gives up smart, crowder, jerebko, and hunter brooklyn 2016 Pick, Dallas pick, boston 2016 pick and 2 2nd rounders

indy gives up george

boston signs jamal crawford biannual
signs kd max contract
sign Barbosa vet min

Isaiah thomas/ rozier
Crawford/ barbosa
george/ turner
durant/ mickey

I know that the celtics rOster gets gutted but honestly aside from Bradley, I don't see anyone else that I would really be upset about giving up. Would just need to do a better job of getting a bench.

06 May 2016 15:50:01
You wouldn't be upset about giving up Crowder?

But me personally I don't want anything to do with Cousins. Until he can prove to have a season of no drama I don't want him to come here and ruin what we are building. I get it that he has been in such an awful organization and that is what people say his behavior roots from but he was the same way in college and has always had these character issues. Yes he's a great player but that doesn't always equal team success even if he has a supporting cast.

06 May 2016 16:56:04
Honestly, wouldn't be that upset about losing crowder. I think Bradley is a lot more valuable. Crowder's achievement is overhyped. I think george serving him as a replacement would be just fine.

In regards to cousins, you might be right. I just assume a change of environment would be good like It was for Turner. But could also go the Whiteside route

roster would look something like

thomas/ rozier
Bradley/ crawford
george/ turner
durant/ olynyk
whiteside/ zeller

trade smart, crowder, johnson and both brooklyn picks.

06 May 2016 17:03:56
In this situation I keep Bradley and trade Thomas.

06 May 2016 17:38:30
Indy can get more for PG13
If that's boston's offer, we should trade him to LA for Ingram, Randle and Russell.

06 May 2016 13:49:59
Knicks get Blake Griffin, a 27 year old stud PLUS a draft pick and give up:

1. Carmello Anthony, an aging 31 year old with 3 more years on an enormous contract
2. Grant, a young PG that was a disappointment


Clippers are not moving Griffin to the Knicks unless Zinger's name is in the discussion. Do you think Zinger can average 21.5ppg and 9.6rpg for his first six years? That's what Griffin has done and he's still young enough to do it another 5 years.

05 May 2016 23:06:15

Chicago say no Deal. Smart and Johnson no god for the Bulls System. Butler is a Superstar for the Bulls.
Smart and Johnson maximal bench Players in My eyes Sorry.
I am a Bulls Fan.

05 May 2016 12:46:06
Butler is a superstar, but the bulls are going nowhere
Noah and Rose are fading away.
No way the Bulls can atract another superstar in freeagency, so they should rebuilt. Are do they rather aim for the eight spot in the East?

3 Nets pics and a good pointguard is a opportunity for them
They can give the young players minutes to improve and they go high themselves in the next two drafts.

05 May 2016 14:30:24
No smart 27mpg 9,1 ppg Sorry is low.
Is Not god point Guard. Smart have no Future with Bulls. The Bulls trade never Butler for smart Johnson and pics.

05 May 2016 15:35:27
Gasol would start with crowder off the bench.

05 May 2016 15:51:32
The Celtics would have the worst front court defense in the league starting Love and Olynik.

05 May 2016 16:14:55
plus Love and Olynyk i think wouldn't work together yeah?

Not a bad trade, but I don't see Melo waiving his no trade to go to Sac Town.

05 May 2016 13:30:44
With Rondo and Cousins playing there best ball, LA. Not to far away from wifey honey nut cherio. It makes sense, get away from triangle and phil. JAG joins forces with Ewing.

05 May 2016 21:31:17

I know contracts are going to be out of control but Augustin ain't getting $12.5/ per.

05 May 2016 05:43:25
Even as messed up as the Suns have been lately, they would hang up on the thought of Melo on the Suns. A big N-O is what NY would hear.

2016 Rnd.2 and future to be

03 May 2016 20:20:58
I think that letting go of Turner would be a huge loss. He is the only person who can facilitate on this team.

03 May 2016 20:32:21
right. need to resign turner and sullinger.

03 May 2016 20:48:37
I agree Larry. If Turner and the Celts can agree on a discount then I would be happy to see him come back.
If that be the case then I would put him starting at SG and move Smart into back to the 2nd team playing PG and SG with the hopes he will improve his long-range shooting. Even so, I do believe Smart will become trade bait sometime this year.

Overall, if the Celts can pull all those moves off, they can be a well blended/ much improved 55-60 win team. injury pending of course.

03 May 2016 21:03:12
I don't know if I agree with the Favors trade though. In that lineup he would be the number 1 scoring option. Because to me Thomas is much better suited as a number 2 or number 3, it showed in the playoffs that if defenses take him out of the game then he is kind of useless. So if we are going to move players it needs to be for someone that is better suited at being a number one option.

03 May 2016 21:18:37
What I am saying is that we need someone that we can give the ball to at the end of the game and trust that he will be able to give us a great shot at winning the close games. Like what Pierce did for all those years. And with that team you still have to count on Thomas which I don't think is a great idea.

Just imagine a team with an actual go to scorer and Brad Stevens' late game plays? That would be insanely hard to defend.

04 May 2016 01:13:32
The Jazz won't let Favors go for that. Three nickels for a quarter.

03 May 2016 17:03:52
Boston: M Gasol+ J Butler
Memphis: Olynyk+ Smart+Hunter+ 1rnd pic Memphis 19

Chicago:Johnson+ Crowder+ 1rnd pic Nets 16+ swap rights Nets 17+ Nets pic 2018

Boston signs Durant

c: M Gasol
PF: Sullinger
SF: Durant
SG: J Butler
PG: I Thomas.

03 May 2016 18:07:01
I don't think you can trade swap rights. But the rest is ok.

03 May 2016 18:09:15
I can't see Danny trading his whole treasure chest before knowing that we get Durant. Because if we just get Gasol and Butler and lose all of our depth I don't see this being a title contender. The defense would be great but we would still need more. In my opinion.

03 May 2016 20:54:34
You have 1 superstar, 3 stars and not much else.

03 May 2016 23:32:01
@NBA, well they can attract vets who wants to win and play as their bench. if that's the core, they are quite formidable.

03 May 2016 15:03:13

03 May 2016 15:07:35
So the Celtics give up 3 rotation players, two high lottery picks and another No. 1 for Butler?

I don't think so.

03 May 2016 15:20:07
That's not too bad from Sixers perspective. I think they'll want more out of a trade of OK4 than Smart. They'll want an experienced NBA guard that has enough star power to show the league's free agents that the Sixers are viable. Smart doesn't do that. Knight or Bledsoe from the Suns do that. But not Smart. So I'd have to decline this from the Sixers' perspective, at least until I knew if I could get the kind of player I wanted.

03 May 2016 16:05:21
I think smart never got a real chance being a back up plus Chicago get to much.

03 May 2016 16:07:07
That's like a paul George trade take out one of crowder, hield, or okafor.

Detroit gets robbed. No way in hell.

03 May 2016 13:18:44
Only NY win.

03 May 2016 13:32:26
Clippers do ok, but agree that Detroit gets robbed.

03 May 2016 13:59:32
Detroit gives a lot, but they also receive a star player.
It's difficult for them, to sign a top free agent. They give away young talent, but i don't think any of them is going to be an all star.

Griffin, Drummond, Jackson and two wings that can shoot is making them a contender.

03 May 2016 14:55:20
If you make it simple like Griffin for Harris, Stanley or KCP and about 2 1st it will be better.

03 May 2016 14:56:34
Too much for melo.

03 May 2016 02:47:20
Trade #1 SAC/ DEN
SAC - 7th, 15th, Gallo, Nurkic.
DEN - Cousins.

Sign and trade #2 SAC/ NYK/ CLE
SAC - Love.
NYK - Rondo (3yrs 60 mil) Gay, 15th.
CLE - Melo, Casspi.

SAC - Brown, Dunn.

Free Agency.

Jones 4 yrs 22 mil
Beal 4 yrs Max


PG. Dunn/ Curry
SG. Beal/ Barton/ Mclemore.
SF. Gallo/ Brown/ Bellinelli.
PF. Love/ Jones.
C. WCS/ Nurkic/ Koufos.

preparing for a debate but here's some thoughts.
• Beal would fit well with this team but getting him is a stretch.
• Lebron would have to really want Melo in CLE
• Brown needs time to refine his game so bringing him behind Gallo makes sense to me, another thing if he could progress like Kawhi did as far has a jumpshot is concerned than that would do wonders for this team.
• Dunn is basically a younger and cheaper rondo
• And finally i realise That it might be selling low on cousins but it works for both teams and sac gets more assests, Denvers Front court D is terrible though.

04 May 2016 04:47:28
Uh, no offense but if that's "selling low" on Cousins, then the NUGGETS definitely say no. I hope they wouldn't give up their highest pick in this upcoming draft, a promising young Big "granted coming off an injury season" but on a decent contract. Then throw in one of their best shooters/ if not their best player over the last 5 years. For a one player that some. (some) say may be the best big in the league. only when every thing lines up. But in reality, most of the time he's been your teams biggest problem child with the largest contract. Doesn't seem to add up.

02 May 2016 22:49:48

SAC get Bledsoe, #4 pick, Sullinger, Bradley, 1st round pick DAL

draft Buddy Hield, Jaylen Brown and Thon Maker


BOS get Cousins, Tucker


PHX get McLemore, #3 pick, Rozier, Amir Johnson (non-guaranteed)

draft Dragan Bender and Denzel Valentine


03 May 2016 00:08:36
phoenix trades best player to move up one spot in a weak draft?

03 May 2016 04:40:35
Boston should add more maybe smart and the Boston first replaces Rozier and Olynyk goes to sac.

02 May 2016 18:37:07

BOS get Brook Lopez and James Harden

Pg Thomas/ Smart
Sg Harden/ Hunter
Sf Crowder/ Turner
Pf Sullinger/ Jerebko
Ce Lopez/ Zeller

HOU get Avery Bradley, BKN pick 2016, DAL pick 2016, Jarrett Jack, Kelly Olynyk and future 1st from BOS

Pg Beverley/ Jack
Sg Bradley/ Hield (3rd)
Sf Ariza/ Brewer/ Dekker
Pf Olynyk/ Jones
Ce Capela/ Motiejunas

BKN get 2018 pick back, Terry Rozier and non-guaranteed contract of Amir Johnson.

02 May 2016 20:55:32
No thanks on Harden coming here. He's not a team player at all and that's something that Boston is known for.

02 May 2016 13:07:34
Knicks/ Cavs/ Wolves

To CLE - Melo

To MIN - Thompson, Shumpert, Grant

To NYK - Rubio, Dieng, future CLE 1st

Melo joins LBJ in Cleveland, and gives the Cavs the flexibility to move Love for other assets, or move him to Center, where he's played pretty effectively in the playoffs.

With Kris Dunn on the board at pick 5, and no obvious PF to take in that spot, the Wolves replace Rubio and get the frontcourt player they need. Shump and Jerian Grant become nice depth pieces.

While losing Dieng hurts a bit for the Wolves, KAT Is their Center and cornerstone for the future. In NY, Dieng becomes a much bigger piece of a team, and would give the Knicks some flexibility to move Lopez in the right deal. Rubio becomes the Knicks PG for the foreseeable future, a big upgrade over what is there currently.

02 May 2016 14:28:16
Wolves don't want to take on 2 awful contracts and grant they pass.

02 May 2016 14:30:59
Losing Rubio hurts way more for the Wolves, relying on a rookie PG over Rubio would set the team back a couple years at least.

Not to mention the fact that even with the rising cap, Thompson has a huge contract that hurns the Wolves cap situation.

02 May 2016 15:00:45
Wolves say no

Dieng and Rubio are a good package for C Anthony, but i think Phil Jackson wants something else than a pointguard for Him. If he wants to play the triangle offence, he need good wings.

02 May 2016 17:55:05
Thompson plays every game and is a double double machine. He was only over payed this year. But once cap go up he be in right contract. Plus he would be great next to towns.

02 May 2016 19:41:48
Thompson is strictly a role player. You don't pay 15 million or whatever for a player to come off the bench. His offensive game is limited, his defense is awful. he just rebounds. No matter the cap, that contract is awful.

02 May 2016 08:55:08
(Not cousins haha)
#3, #23 and R. J Hunter
#8 and WCS
Celtics the rim protector kings can get a potentially better gay in brown or a better fit with DMC in bender

#8-Domantis Sabonis

#31-Chris Lavert
#35-Malcolm Brogdon

Olynyk, Lavert, young (add in seconds in needed)

Resign tuner 2yrs 28 mil with T. O for year 2
Decline 12 mil option for Johnson, but resign 5 yrs 50 P. O for fifth year

Crowder/ tuner (lawawu in Europe)

Slightly better roster will still most assets in hand, building incrementally should be the way to go IMO.

02 May 2016 15:09:07
No way we sign Johnson to a 5 years deal.

02 May 2016 15:42:28
why let Sullinger walk? i think he fits beside Cauley-Stein.

02 May 2016 15:43:22
you mean take out Gibson and Johnson.

03 May 2016 12:23:52
Nope Gibson and Bradley. if you look at what Cleveland gave for Love it's similar.
