If Spurs need to clear cap for Durant

Spurs trade Green, Diaw, 2017 first

Lakers trade future protected second

Spurs sign Durant, resign Manu and Duncan.

Lakers get a three point shooter and defensive guy in Green, mentor for Nance and Randle. Also a pick for a "deep draft"

25 Jun 2016 16:03:28

Great Night for NBA Draft;

76ers @ #1 6'10 PF-B. Simmons▶LSU

Spurs @ #29 6'5 PG/ 2G-D. Murray▶Washington

■ D. Murray will be groomed into a nice
addition for the Spurs in 3 years:
Crazy raw talent, with Coach Pop
molding Murray into a top quality
combination guard for the future, and
before he leaves coaching!

■ Think 76ers #24 Pick can play this
season with team; #26 can be Stashed

■ WOW→Thon Maker @ 1-#10 Milwaukee.

23 Jun 2016 17:28:26
Spurs
Number one target should be Marc gasol
Conley is leaving gasol should want out too

Hawks, spurs, grizzlies

Hawks get danny green, patty mills

Spurs get gasol, allen

Grizzlies get 12th pick

Add something to make it work

Trade diaw for 2 second round picks

Sign pau gasol
Both Duncan and ginobili come back on new deals
Draft
Ante zizic. energy for a old team
Levert. D league until fully healthy capable starter
Payton. defense and athletic

I like brogdon too younger and has more handle than simmons.

23 Jun 2016 18:03:29
Danny Green and Patty Mills wouldn't give you Marc Gasol because if the Grizzlies wanted to trade Gasol and tank they'd want a pick. Not two past their prime players and then throwing in one of the best defenders in the trade too.

23 Jun 2016 18:08:47
San Antonio is a great destination for Marc and the Grizlies should rebuilt, but i think they have to give more.
Maybe if the Spurs trow in some future picks.
The Grizlies problem is that Denver and Boston own their future pics, so they can't go tanking.

23 Jun 2016 13:00:42
Clippers-Spurs-NY

Knicks: B Griffin
Clippers: LM Aldridge+ Green
Spurs: Porzingis+ future 1rnd pick Knicks+ future 1rnd pick Clippers.

23 Jun 2016 15:04:17
Why would the spurs want to become a non contender rather then try to build around parker, Aldridge and leonard?

23 Jun 2016 15:20:55
I was looking for a LMA to LA trade

but i think Parker is done.
LMA is 31
OKC and Golden state are the better teams, so why not try a quick rebuilt and make some from LMA, when he has still some value.
Porzingis is going to be good and next year's draft is going to be deep.
so why not?

23 Jun 2016 18:25:59
Knicks pick wouldn't be until like 2019 at the earliest though I thought and the clips pick would be late first round.

23 Jun 2016 08:07:33
Cavs - clippers

Cavs trade
Thompson
Shumpert
Williams

Clippers trade
Jordan
Pierce

Cavs want to keep the big 3 and Thompson if possible but Cavs will need to improve this offseason somehow because every other powerhouses are trying to improve as well. (Warriors, Spurs, Thunder) Clippers I believe will be trying to get younger and start to adjust to the future. Jordan of course is a defensive first team and one of the best Centers but Tristian is developing into an above average Center and will only be getting better. Clippers don't lose their inside presence with Thompson while gaining another defensive wing presence and youth in Shumpert. They lack offense and depth at the ph and Mo Will can still light it up and help give them quality minutes. Pierce wants to win a championship again and he knows Cleveland is a favorite next year. Overall I believe this just gives a start to a positive direction for both teams.

23 Jun 2016 11:16:31
I've never seen a good clippers trade on here. They are always losing the deal.

23 Jun 2016 17:23:56
The Cavs get screwed in this.

23 Jun 2016 06:03:54
Finishing off the Timberwolves roster to be suited to Tom Thibodeau's style of play. Adding plenty of veterans that will not only have positive impacts now but can help develop the young core that this Timberwolves has. These trades also help San Antonio get a little younger with some solid defensive talent, which will prolong the inevitable rebuild that they will eventually have to go through. The Nuggets get more picks to bolster their roster much like the 76ers have been doing the last few years, though i believe with these picks, the Nuggets could get the job done much faster than Philly have so far.

T'Wolves Give: Shabaz Muhammed, Nikola Pekovic, Gorgui Dieng, Adrien Payne, Pick #5
T'Wolves Get: Kenneth Faried, Patty Mills, Boris Diaw, Pick #53, Pick #56

Nuggets Give: Kenneth Faried, Pick #15, Pick #53, Pick #56
Nuggets Get: Nikola Pekovic, Shabaz Muhammed, Pick #5 and Pick #29

Spurs Give: Patty Mills, Boris Diaw, Pick #29
Spurs Get: Gorgui Dieng, Adrien Payne, Pick #15

Lineups:

T'Wolves - Sign Joakim Noah (3 year, $19 Million), Nicolas Batum (4 year, $78 Million), Re-Sign Tayshaun Prince (1 year, $1.2 Million)
PG: Ricky Rubio, Patty Mills, Tyus Jones
SG: Andrew Wiggins, Zach Lavine, Pick #56 (Wayne Selden - Kansas)
SF: Nicolas Batum, Tayshaun Prince, Pick #53 (Troy Williams - Indiana)
PF: Kenneth Faried, Boris Diaw, Nemanji Bjelica
C: Karl-Anthony Towns, Joakim Noah, Kevin Garnett

Thoughts?
****Constructive criticism only please.

23 Jun 2016 06:16:44
Makes sense but Nic Batum will likely get more money, sadly, coming from a Hornets fan.

23 Jun 2016 06:52:58
Both Noah and Batum will probably get more money.

I also wouldn't trust Diaw to be effective anywhere outside of San Antonio and away from Pop.

The other big issue I have with this is trading for Faried, the only real positives I see in him are that he is athletic and high-energy. I would much rather have a guy who can space the floor even a little bit in Dieng.

Minor things being that Prince was absolutely horrible last year and should not be brought back under any circumstances, and that this seems to create issues with future cap stuff with Rubio's, Faried's, and Batum's contracts all being in effect when the Wolves need to extend Wiggins and potentially Lavine.

Last thing, this also seems to create a team that is stuck in perpetual 1st/ 2nd round exits. Batum will be exiting his prime and Noah will be done as Wiggins and Towns enter their primes which is when this team should aim to get titles.

23 Jun 2016 06:53:36
@NBA i agree, he probably should be getting between $22-$25 Million this coming year, but in this scenario, let's just pretend he accepts less money to be on a winning team (kind of a Spurs salary type situation with a majority of the team taking less money for more talent) .

23 Jun 2016 19:39:29
Noah will get more money there is going to be so much money to go around that you going to stay with your mouth open like what he got that much nooooo wayyy.

22 Jun 2016 23:34:49
Spurs/ hawks

Spurs get 12th pick

Hawks get danny green

Hawks need a 2 guard

Spurs need the next ginobili.

23 Jun 2016 00:24:13
Who's the next Ginobli.

23 Jun 2016 01:07:26
If anything the Hawks need a big wing not another shooting guard that could play the 3, and the Hawks gave up Teague for the 12th pick, and green is not nearly as good as teague.

23 Jun 2016 02:28:50
No one they get at 12 is better then Teague so the point is mute.

22 Jun 2016 15:17:23
Spurs / suns
Suns on the boards for bugs

Spurs get 28th pick

Suns get diaw

Suns prospects could use diaw as a leader. he's a great passer, crafty getting to the rim and hits the open 3.

22 Jun 2016 15:29:35
Diaw is much better off. staying in San Antonio and has little value anywhere else. Suns say no.

21 Jun 2016 22:03:46
sixers and spurs
simmons a lock for sixers

spurs get covington and 26th pick

sixers get danny green and rights to overseas players.

21 Jun 2016 23:25:15
Spurs clear cap space and Sixers get much needed shooting, good trade for both teams.

21 Jun 2016 23:31:19
Is green that much better than covington?

21 Jun 2016 23:42:19
Maybe green for H. Thompson instead with the 26th pick, idk, but a lot of sixers fans on here seem really high on Covington. Other than that I like the trade for both teams as SAS may look to dump greens salary to chase amother star.

21 Jun 2016 23:51:17
Makes sense but then who starts at SF?

22 Jun 2016 00:03:41
I think the pick alone would get it done.

22 Jun 2016 00:28:01
Well that's what I mean. with it being a salary dump, the first round pick should be close by itself,

22 Jun 2016 00:32:14
Yes Green is much better than Covington. Classy vet who plays good defense and could hit the three. Sure he a below average year but for the Sixers, he's a guy you want. Covington doesn't have much value to any other team in the league besides the Sixers. He's inefficient. Solid defender and three point shooter sure but not much else.

22 Jun 2016 02:10:19
Green is paid too much. 10 mil for a guy who does the same thing as the 1 mil Covington. Sixers pass.

22 Jun 2016 02:59:50
Theking-
The only thing you said different about both players is that Covington is inefficient, but he prolly has played more minutes and taken more shots. Covingtons contract is crazy good, and we wouldn't see his name mentioned so much on here if he didn't have any value.

22 Jun 2016 03:31:26
@TreGib D. Green is actually under paid at 10 mil per. D
. carrol getting 15 mil per year and he's doesn't do more than green.

22 Jun 2016 03:54:44
Covington is a career 34% 3 point shooter, green's career average is 43%. Green is a considerably better defender. How in the world are they the same? Oh yeah, and green has championship experience.

22 Jun 2016 04:36:49
Carrol does just as much as green.

22 Jun 2016 04:40:27
Nobody said they were the same Ben. Its just when you factor in that green is being paid 10 times more then Covington and they both do similar things on the court, they become pretty close to the same.

No need to throw in a 1st rounder.

22 Jun 2016 05:22:44
TreGib said "they do the same thing". You said "pretty close". 9% three point difference is a huge difference. The experience is a huge difference. The defense is a huge difference. Covington might be underpaid, but I'd take green at 10 million over Covington at 1 million all day every day.

Also, you said "you wouldn't see his name come up if he doesn't have value", but literally no one but 76ers fans include him in trades unless he's a throw in with no value change.

22 Jun 2016 15:02:49
Ben-
Both statements are true though. They are both 3 and D guys alla "they do the same thing".

Most of the time it isn't Sixers fans trying to make him a throw in in these trade scenarios. My only point was that pick 26th should get green in a salary dump situation which would be the only reason the spurs would trade him. Covington isn't a throw-in.

21 Jun 2016 20:51:07
Definitely Won't Happen, but let's try to assemble LeBron's Super Team with the Knicks since he brought the championship to Cleveland and Melo won't leave NY. Also LeBron said MSG is his favorite place to play and he would play all 82 games there if he could. Well he can't play 82 but 41 is pretty close especially when he gets to play with his best friends.

Afflalo and Williams just Opted Out

Stretch Jose Calderon

3 Team Trade

Celtics get Blake Griffin, Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant, and Kyle O'Quinn

Clippers get Kristaps Porzingis, Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart, Jae Crowder, Kelly Olynick, the 3rd Overall Pick, and the Knicks 2018 1st Round Draft Pick

Knicks get Chris Paul

This gives the Knicks CP3 to form LeBron's Super Team. The Celtics cash in on some of their assets and finally get the Super Star they need. The Clippers get a ton of young players and the 3rd pick to spark a rebuild since they can't get passed the Warriors, Spurs, or Thunder.

Like I said this won't happen but what do you guys think?

21 Jun 2016 21:28:33
Do you know what a salary cap is? People are saying it will be around 94 million. With cp3 and Carmelo making a combined 48 million you have put together a 130+ million a year team how's that going to work lol.

21 Jun 2016 21:29:34
Why not just keep Lopez instead of signing Noah? Plus I don't think Noah will get that much over 4 years if someone even offers him 4 years.

21 Jun 2016 23:27:26
C's are giving up too much to get Griffin.

21 Jun 2016 23:49:49
I had to include Lopez in the trade because without him the Knicks wouldn't be giving up enough value and the money wouldn't work. They would be getting about $22 million for Paul and only giving up about $10million for Porzingis, O'Quinn, and Grant combined.

21 Jun 2016 23:54:01
The trade is somewhat believable if the clippers decide to rebuild. But the signings aren't, to begin, the salary cap is not that high. And if you already have lebron, cp3 and Melo it would be smarter and you have to spend that 20 mil (spent on dwade) on role players if you wanted to to have an actual roster not just three stars. Noah is not worth that, and I doubt he would want to play with lebron. Lastly, this is somewhat believable if both LA decides to rebuild, and lebron decides to leave.

22 Jun 2016 01:16:52
Celtics get robbed and clippers cash in on expiring contracts. Celtics keep crowder and Bradley. Give up 2018 nets pick.

22 Jun 2016 01:26:27
Lebron 25 and sign cheaper center forget crawford.

Conley will get more
Batum will get more and isn't neccesary, try trade beastly and a future 2nd for maybe Maclemore
AND Gasol will get more but Noah will probably be the better option IMO.

19 Jun 2016 14:13:39
Beasley also going before 29.

19 Jun 2016 14:42:38
As HDC said, all of those contracts are too low. Also, SA signing batum won't happen because he and Aldridge hate each other.

19 Jun 2016 14:42:38

19 Jun 2016 15:14:39
@BenMiller
Wait what? Since when did they hate each other!?

19 Jun 2016 16:26:53
It came out last year after batum got traded. That trade was the last effort to convince Aldridge to stay by getting rid of his least favorite teammate. Maybe they don't hate each other, but Aldridge hated playing with batum.

19 Jun 2016 20:17:47
Mike Conley can get more, but it won't be with a NOW Championship Contender
■Conley made just $9M in his final year with Memphis, which included several seasons with injuries during playoff runs
■A $9.5M Per Season Salary jump on a contending title team should be good for Conley, if winning is what he wants under Coach Pop; From $9M to $18.2M with SAS is better than making $22M Per with NY Knicks, Milwaukee, or Indiana . Do a 2-Year Deal w/ SAS, and Resign as the Salary Cap goes up again in 2017;

■The Batum, Aldridge stories are out there, but they don't have to live together; Batum probably wouldn't come, not because of Aldridge, but that his French teammates, Parker/ Diaw will probably be gone, we'wee; If Batum rather lose in Charlotte than win in a Popovich led system because of feelings with another player, than it is what it is, because Spurs will find others to keep them @ championship level

The $18.5M Per Season for Batum with SAS is good for running with a championship caliber team with 2 other All-NBA selections on the roster; $18.5M may not be good playing for a consistent 6th-8th playoff seed team, which Charlotte is; I don't see Batum making that much more than GSW-Draymont Green $17M Per Season, who's a NBA Champion, All Defensive Team Selection, All NBA Selection, and Western Conference All Star Choice; Batum better than GSW Green and Klay Thompson, both make at least $18M, if not less; Batum can stay in Charlotte and rub M. J. Rings, because he'll never get one for himself there

■Many people think what a player's value is that's what he'll only take, regardless of wanting to win a NBA Title; Pau Gasol already stated he'll take less for another title shot; Where did Pau brother Marc tell him where to go? SA Spurs!

Think Conley don't know Coach Popavich will make him better; Others have stated they would take a little less in the right situation for title contending runs; FA Center Bismarck of Toronto say's he'll take less for the right situation, and doesn't mind being a reserve if needed

◇Less Money for Ring Opportunities◇
Miami→Wade, LeBron, Bosh, R. Allen;
Spurs→Duncan, Ginobili, D. Green;
Cetics→R. Allen, Garnett, Pierce;

■Conley knows NBA rings are not in his future if he's not running the GSW, Cleveland, Spurs, Clippers, or OKC offenses →and the Spurs PG Spot is the only one of those teams he could start @ PG

■My Bad, I meant 2G-M. Beasley @ 1-#19
and PF-C. Diallo/ Kansas, or
T. Prince/ Baylor @ 1-#29.

20 Jun 2016 18:51:34
Who in their right mind will pay batum 18mill? Listen spurs don't need anymore big free agents
Conley won't make a big difference
Spurs need to get younger and stronger.

19 Jun 2016 03:21:04
If the Spurs can get Conley

SAS get WCS

SAC get Mills, Green, Diaw

Pg Conley
Sg Parker
Sf Leonard
Pf Aldridge
Ce Wcs.

19 Jun 2016 04:55:01
You'd have to add the #29 pick and the draft rights to Nikola Mutinov.

19 Jun 2016 05:22:31
The price should be much higher for WCS who is prototypical new era center that is big atheltic and not only protect the rim but move feet defensively especially in pick and roll situations. Plus (although Kings may not realize it) Kings aren't going anywhere soon so they should hang on to their young guys and need trade him for a bunch of good role players.

18 Jun 2016 22:27:29
Knicks-Spurs

Knicks gets: Green

Spurs gets: Lopez.

19 Jun 2016 04:32:20
Not sure why Knicks would do this. Lopez played well for Knicks and good big men are more difficult to find.

Bertans a Bonner type with more potential
Zizic high energy, crash the boards guy.

17 Jun 2016 21:53:35
Mills for two second-rounders sounds fair. I'd do that.

18 Jun 2016 19:18:05
I don't think Bos wants mills they have enough PG. They would rather draft and stash euro bigs.

17 Jun 2016 20:32:35
The Spurs want to shed salary not gain salary. As of right now they don't have enough money to even make this trade since Rose is double Green's salary.

12 Jun 2016 08:29:48
Raptors Spurs Hawks

Raptors get Diaw and Korver

Spurs gef 21st

Hawks get Ross, 27th and 29th.

12 Jun 2016 13:03:55
Lopsided trade.

12 Jun 2016 17:19:53
I could see Spurs doing this to clear the deck for a big FA signing. Raptors pick up their two biggest needs in 3 point shooting and a versatile big. The only question is whether the Hawks would want Ross. With the way Korver played last year, they may consider this as well. All in all, I don think it's a bad deal.

12 Jun 2016 08:16:43
Spurs Bucks

Spurs acquire Monroe, Vaughn

Bucks acquire Green, Diaw, 1st round pick.

12 Jun 2016 17:21:39
Monroe would be a terrible replacement for Duncan. If Spurs are moving Diaw and Green, it's for cap space to sign a star, not for a questionable big contract.

12 Jun 2016 22:32:48
I think the bucks could get more.

10 Jun 2016 19:47:36
76ers / Suns

■ 76ers Management should wait at grabbing a PG this coming season, unless a no brainer trade is offered; B. Simmons 1-#1 Pick is a Point Forward, and if the 76ers are drafting him, then resign Ish Smith, and roll with him for the year . He'll be a good back'up come 2017;

■ I rather draft 3F B. Ingram

■ Nerlen Noel and Agent won't be happy with him coming off the bench next season, especially going into his RFA season; Some team will offer Nerlen a nice contract; 6'11,future all defensive teams type potential; Can play Center, while capable of defending Stretch 4's; Top Teams like GSW or Spurs could afford to offer him a contract, and have a nice young defensive Center, giving you 10-12 points, 9-10 boards, 2 blocks

■ Nerlen has one season left before free agency, J. Okafor has three years remaining before hitting free agency, making him a better trade option; So both are being shopped around to see value, which will get better days before the upcoming 2016 draft;

■ 76ers might have 2 1st Round Lottery Picks next season; PG, and a chance for SG/ SF J. Jackson of U-Kansas

■ 2017 has a free agent P-Guard class of;
◇ R. Westbrook-OKC
◇ K. Lowry-TOR
◇ G. Ant'Man-MIL
◇ D. Schroeder-ATL (RFA)

■ 2017 has a Draft Class of P-Guard of;
◇ M. Fultz/ Washington
◇ F. Ntilikina/ International
◇ L. Ball/ UCLA
◇ D. Smith/ N. C. State
◇ D. Fox/ Kentucky

■76ers Trade 2016 1-#26 for Future 1st / 2nd Round Picks, or in a 2016 Trade for veteran player;

■ 76ers shouldn't trade Okafor until they see Embiid play; See what staff can do with Embiid/ Okafor on the court; Embiid can go outside hitting the 15-18 foot shot, which Nerlen can't on a consistent basis;

■ 76ers, wait until next season trade deadline, or before the 2017 NBA Draft to move Okafor . 2 possible lottery picks and Okafor can get a MAX Free Agent in 2017, or a high top pick if 76ers don't get #1-#2 pick next year . IF they don't get a VERY GOOD offer this summer . we need to see Ja and Embiid together first .

Decent but in the 76ers-Suns trade, change the 24th pick to 26th and drop the 13th pick
Noel is not worth that much.

Philly shouldn't be looking into 2017 free agency because none of those players will sign with them.

10 Jun 2016 21:22:27
All fair ideas in my book.

10 Jun 2016 23:17:50
Sixers are taking Simmons.

10 Jun 2016 23:28:00
if the sixers can get Murray for Noel, stauskas, and #24 I'm good with that. Suns can keep giidein, and adding #13 makes it unfair in philly s favor.

■If not a 2017 MAX-Free Agent, 76ers can definitely select a nice young point guard . my choice; L. Ball 6'5 from UCLA .

■If Embiid comes in healthy (Hopefully), and average 18-20ppg/ 11rpg, Ingram develop's over the season, top free agents will consider 76ers . whether PG's or whatever position .

■DON'T Sleep on the 76ers situation . Colangelo plans→

Will have them competing quickly in the playoffs; Wants the young highly skilled rookies to get that playoff experience early, with the help of veterans FA reserves this summer and Top Tier FA in 2017, so they can go for the Eastern Conference finals series within next 4 years .

■LeBron, Melo, Wade, all be older, mid 35-plus in age, giving the 76ers enough time to be ready to compete for Eastern Conference Titles against the Detroit/ Indiana/ Cleveland/ Toronto teams, IF they make the right moves this summer and next .

■76ers should think about building a bench/ reserves this summer; Saric, J. Grant, R. Holmes, McConnell, 1Rd-#24/ #26 . and get some role players (Mid-Level Tier) this summer through free agency

■76ers then set up their Starting Core with the Nerlen trade (With Whoever) this summer, and a 2017 MAX Player (Sign/ Trade Deal w/ Okafor Included, or RFA, UFA Signing), and selecting their 2017 Top Draft Pick . Draft Ball from UCLA/ Jackson-Kansas, and maybe sign Utah PF-D. Favors to replace Okafor, once he's traded-maybe for a package deal for Bulls 2G-J. Butler, Cavs PG- K. Irving

■ I'm not saying 76ers will get those three (Butler, or Irving and Favors), but they have the pieces/ cap room to get good young veterans players like them that can give the 76ers a good chemistry of young veterans with Embiid/ Ingram/ Saric/ Grant/ McConnell and next year 1st Round Pick, to get into the playoffs sooner than later

■But the key to making and creating respect and noise in the playoffs early, is signing or trading for a MAX Player, and building a bench (Ish Smith @ PG) that will hold things down in the early stages while the young Saric/ Embiid/ Grant/ Ingram/ McConnell gain experience and confidence this 2016/ 2017 year, to make a playoff run during 2017/ 2018 season

■Embiid/ Saric/ Ingram must learn the NBA Speed, Conditioning, Mistakes and Travel next season, after that, come 2017/ 2018 season, with a good bench and added MAX player and a 2nd Tier FA . 76ers should clinch a playoff spot

■AGAIN, the right moves count, and trading off Ja Okafor should be on hold until after 2016 draft, especially if he does serious work on the U. S. Select Team this summer against other top young players . Value Goes UP even higher

■By 2019, a year when the 76ers get 2 more 1st Round Picks, and 3-2nd Round Draft Picks, they should be ready to complete no lesser then the 2nd Round of Playoffs, before they become one of the Premier Teams in the Eastern Conference come 2020.

Yeah . I think you can subtract the 1-#13 from deal, I totally agree; but not switching the 1-#24 for 1-#26: 2 selections apart @ the bottom half of draft is not big difference in talent level;

■Save every dollar on 1st Round Salary structure on the team, especially having 4 1st Rounders if Dario Saric comes over; Plus, let Phoenix feel good about getting the higher selection

■Suns have the 1-#28 Selection also
■Key is 76ers getting J. Murray from
Kentucky; Better combination guard
than K. Dunn of Providence.

I agree 76ers shouldn't rush to get a pg unless right deal arises. Don't think they should pass on Simmons talent even though Ingram is a better fit. Don't think they'll be able to get that much for Noel especially from Suns who don't have a glaring need to invest that much in a young center (already have Lens) .

11 Jun 2016 13:57:06
Did you just say Embiid averaging 20 and 11? That's completely unfair to Embiid, who has not played in two years. Expecting anything from him is insane.

12 Jun 2016 07:35:05
I said "IF" Embiid average 18-20ppg/ 11rpg .

BOS-SAS
