3 team trade
Bulls, wolves, spurs
Spurs get shabazz Muhammad, b. portis, and Valentine
Wolves get Gibson
Bulls get aldridge.
29 Sep 2016 23:49:39
Spurs say hell no.
30 Sep 2016 08:52:47
I can't dislike this trade becaus i made a similar one af few weeks ago. But the Bulls should give a little more.
This would be a good deal for the Spurs. They trade an aging star, for two young talented guys. I really believe Portis can become an all star and Valentine has potential too. I don't think the surs can beat GS, so this would be a smart move, the only problem is they signed P Gasol, so they want to win now.
29 Sep 2016 08:25:08
Spurs: J Butler+ Russell
Chi: Ingram+ Deng
LA: K Leonard.
29 Sep 2016 13:08:13
LA, they get the best player in the deal while giving up an unproven player (Ingram), one with questions (Russell) and an average one in Deng.
29 Sep 2016 13:17:30
I actually like it for everyone.
29 Sep 2016 13:31:10
Problem is i can see spurs trading Leonard. But spurs win.
29 Sep 2016 14:07:16
It's not gonne happen.
But all teams could benefit in this trade
I like this trade for the Spurs.
Butler isn't K Leonard, but he's the next best thing, he's from Texas and they receive a young talented PG on a rookie contract for a few years, zo they can sign another good free agents.
I don't think Butler and Wade will work. Deng is a good 3-point shooter and he can play defense. Ingram could become the star when Wade retires.
LA does have a young core and they should only break that team up for a MVP candidate. K Leonard can bring other free agents to LA next year. They take the biggest and the smallest risk.
29 Sep 2016 15:44:47
And it isn't like Kawhi doesn't have anyone. Clarkson and Randle will be above average starters for a 6-8 years.
29 Sep 2016 19:32:17
Lakers say no.
30 Sep 2016 01:58:39
I don't see Spurs trading Leonard.
30 Sep 2016 02:22:28
I think spurs win they get a similar player in butler to Leonard and a good young prospect.
30 Sep 2016 05:39:39
That's a real interesting trade. I'd say the Spurs are clear winners since Butler although not as good a shooter is fairly similar player to Leonard (although didn't realize he is almost 2 years older) . In Russell they'd get a guy with superstar potential at a position of need and a coach like Pop could certainly bring him there and cut all the crap out of him. He is perfect age that while he is young Butler and Aldridge can run the show then they can pass torch to him in a few years.
Lakers I'd put second since they land arguably the best two way player in the league at the age of 25 and locked up long term. Dude is a quiet superstar without an ego so I don't know who wouldn't want to play with him. He is also versatile and would give Lakers a lot of possibilities moving forward. If they got a guy like Millsap or Ibaka then magically got CP3 or Lowry they could be scary good real fast.
The Bulls aren't getting a great offer for Butler but I don't think its bad either. They get a fan favorite in Deng back who is a good veteran who can still give starter minutes. He could tutor Ingram and allow them to not rush his development. Ingram looks to have superstar potential and can grow with Valentine and Portis to make next iteration of future Bulls team.
27 Sep 2016 08:47:36
Bulls trade spurs
Bulls get lamarcus Aldridge
Spurs get gibson, portis, and mcdermout.
27 Sep 2016 12:13:54
That would be a great trade
But the Bulls should also give the Sac picks and Valentine
LMA is a great PF, maybe the best in the league.
He would make the Bulls contenders.
It looks a stupid trade for the Spurs.
But they can't beat the Warriors the next two years.
So they could better trade an aging player for young assets.
I like Portis, i think he could become an all star.
27 Sep 2016 13:19:00
I say no only because of the design of the Spurs current roster, which is a win now one. Gasol, Parker, and Ginobili don't have enough good years left to wait for Portis and McDermott to fully develop into the very good players they're going to be.
This may be a next offseason trade if the Spurs find themselves on the losing end of the Warriors rivalry this year.
31 Aug 2016 18:47:50
Spurs get Rudy gay
Kings get Danny green, jean-Charles, simmons
Sign Thomas Robinson
Parker, mills, Murray
Gay, ginobili, garino
Leonard, anderson, bertans
Aldridge, Robinson, lee
31 Aug 2016 20:12:50
I can't figure out which trade you've posted up is worse. Simmons=starter= late 2nd round pick? You do realize that other teams try to win to right?
01 Sep 2016 02:38:11
you mean garino is laprovittola right? garino is an argentine big man not sg.
01 Sep 2016 15:18:33
Rudy Gay is the anti-Spur, no interest at all from San Antonio on this one.
31 Aug 2016 18:42:13
Spurs front court still thing Gasol really can't handle it and can't count on Lee + dedmon to be super stars
Spurs get N. Vuze victory
Magic get D. Green, Jean-Charles, rights to Nikola Milutinov and second round pick 2017
It leaves a hole at Sg but simmons could step up
Parker, mills, Murray
Simmons, ginobili, garino if he signs
Leonard, anderson, bertans
Aldridge, gasol, lee
Vucevic, dedmon, vet min space.
29 Aug 2016 01:32:46
Chi: LMA+ D Green
Spurs: J Butler+ T Gibson
C:R Lopez/ Portis
PF: LMA/ Mirotic
SF: D Green/ McDermott
SG: D Wade/ Valentine
PG: Rondo/ Grant
C: P Gasol/ D Lee
PF: Gibson/ D Lee
SF: K Leonard/ K Anderson
SG: Butler/ Ginobilli
PG: Parker/ Murray.
29 Aug 2016 04:55:58
Too much for butler.
29 Aug 2016 19:45:09
The value is probably pretty even, but I don't understand why SA would want butler more than Aldridge. LA fits the team more in a position of much more need.
29 Aug 2016 22:33:47
I Like a Butler + Kawhi Leonard
It's a Pippen+ Jordan combo.
30 Aug 2016 03:47:27
Please tell me your not comparing Kawhi to Mj.
30 Aug 2016 04:22:38
I think Spurs are a contender so I'd gauge all their moves by asking if it gives them a better shot at beating the Warriors. I don't think this trade does this since Green is a good perimeter defender and spot up shooter while LMA gives Spurs a wrinkle the Warriors don't have. Butler and Leonard would be a scary duo for as long as they wanted to stay together but I don't think Gibson at this stage of his career would be all that valuable. Also Spurs biggest issue at pg is unaddressed.
30 Aug 2016 15:19:05
It's actually a lot more of a pippen/ pippen combo to me.
23 Aug 2016 15:23:46
Patterson. P, Ross. T, 2nd-2017
Noel. N, Stauskas. N
Sixers get some outside shooter to let the big men play inside
Raps get a solid big man and outside shooter
Spurs get a young center with potential
Raps get a solid defender
23 Aug 2016 16:27:38
Don't like Patterson on this crowded team and Ross is no better then what the Sixers already have. So I'd have to pass. Seems like a pointless deal to me.
23 Aug 2016 21:42:13
Noel us worth atleast Knight.
20 Aug 2016 17:10:09

20 Aug 2016 17:53:37
Why keep signing old guys.
20 Aug 2016 18:20:07
Then sign Taj Gibson instead of Randolph?
20 Aug 2016 19:44:38
Why resign Mills, when you have Murray
21 Aug 2016 03:53:44
Either Parker or Murray will be the starting PG in 2017-18, not Mills (who most likely won't be re-signed) .
I don't see them getting Redick for that little, and I'm not a huge fan of spending on Gasol again at that point.
02 Aug 2016 15:04:41
Trades That Could Be Happening Soon
Celtics Get: J. Okafor
76ers Get: M. Smart and 2018 Boston 1st Round Pick
Bucks Get: T. Evans
Pelicans Get: G. Monroe
Magic Get: E. Bledsoe and S. Hawes
Suns Get: MKG and 2017 2nd Round Pick From Orl
Hornets Get: N. Vucevic
Spurs Get: R. Gay
Kings Get: D. Murray, K. Anderson and 2018 1st.
02 Aug 2016 16:38:20
I'd probably do the No. 1 deal, but not sure why Sixers would want another draft pick -- especially since Boston's 2018 No. 1 will almost certainly not be in the lottery.
02 Aug 2016 16:59:45
1) Trading Okafor for Smart and a pick would be a dissapointment for Philly, but it's not unrealistic.
02 Aug 2016 17:41:44
Celtics would never ever trade Smart straight up for Okafor, let alone including a pick.
02 Aug 2016 18:06:35
Okafor still is a talent and Boston has Pg enough.
02 Aug 2016 18:23:54
BHC your insane.
02 Aug 2016 18:24:01
02 Aug 2016 21:25:36
Celtics say NO.
03 Aug 2016 01:56:16
Come on Boston fans, don't be unrealistic. You would never even see a trade of okafor for smart straight up unless Ainge was stupid enough to propose another trade like that. In which, he would be shot down immediately like the million other trades he's tried to make this offseason. He's like a little kid on a video game trying to trade a couple 70 overall players for an MVP. Just not realistic.
04 Aug 2016 05:33:12
I wouldn't do this as the Sixers solely based on the fact that Supercollider likes it. That to me means Boston is clearly winning the deal.
29 Jul 2016 14:33:00
The next years the league will be dominated by superteams: Golden state, cleveland and the Spurs. So other teams should try to built a superteam or go tanking and rebuilt
Boston: J Butler+ Westbrook+ Cousins
Chi: A Johnson+ Crowder+ 1rnd pick 18 Nets+1 rnd pick Memphis 19
OKC: I Thomas+ 1rnd pick Nets 17
Sac: J Brown+ Smart+ Olynyk
Ok, Boston receive three stars, but i can see these moves happen.
J Butler is better than Crowder. But i don't think Butler and Wade are a good fit. I think the Bulls only give Wade a contract to sell tickets. With or without Butler, this team is going to a first round exit. So Crowder is a cheap replacement for Butler. The Bulls will make the playoffs te next two years and the Nets pick (and the Memphis pick) gives them a chance to a quick rebuilt after Wade retires.
OKC can't risk losing Westbrook for nothing one year after Durant left for free. The thing is no team will offer a lot for a one year rental. so his trades value is going down
I Thomas isn't Westbrook, but he's good and fun to watch. The Nets pick is an opportunity. OKC is good in drafting players. They will have two picks in a deep draft, so they could do a quick rebuilt
IMO Boston is overpaying for a player they can sign next year for free.
I believe Sacramento is the winner in this trade. Cousins maybe is the best center in the league, but he has low trade value and he can't bring the Kings into the playoffs. The Kings recieve a promissing SF and a good PG. Also the Kings pick is protected next year, so if they're really bad, they can keep that pick
SF: J Butler
29 Jul 2016 15:20:29
Don't see the Kings doing this but the other trades look like they could be done.
29 Jul 2016 16:00:15
That team. would win 5 straight titles.
29 Jul 2016 19:34:20
Not close on butler or cousins deals.
30 Jul 2016 23:04:21
25 Jul 2016 14:09:43
SAS: Jonathan Simmons
DEN: Future Considerations.
28 Jul 2016 02:51:36
I don't even know who that is. this is like the unsexy draft trade to dump someone for both sides when they don't like a player. Denver has too many on the bottom of the roster.
22 Jul 2016 11:34:58
Sixers trade okafor mcconell
Spurs trade Anderson patty mills danny green.
22 Jul 2016 13:08:05
Okafor becomes a backup in San Antonio, so no.
Though Green did not have a good year last year, the Spurs can't afford to let him go at the expense of getting a couple of backups. If the Spurs had not been able to sign Gasol, then maybe, but there's no need for this deal.
22 Jul 2016 14:53:11
Don't think the Sixers would pull the trigger on this but green would be a nice fit.
22 Jul 2016 17:23:33
Rather keep Oakfor.
21 Jul 2016 06:18:32
Spurs sign Westbrook max deal next summer.
21 Jul 2016 08:14:03
I would love that.
21 Jul 2016 13:25:12
Him and popovich would be fun.
21 Jul 2016 14:13:44
Spurs don't have the cap space unless they trade some players and Gasol declines in PO. Their starting 5 (assuming Gasol accepts the player option) is at 82 million. Cap is expected to be 102. Westbrook is in line for 30million max because of 9 years experience.
the spurs would essentially be 10 million over the cap, with only 6 players signed. At this point, doesn't look likely.
Also. highly doubt westbrook leaves any money on the table.
21 Jul 2016 16:08:40
Moving green and mills would most likely make it work right?
21 Jul 2016 16:59:41
Mills will be a free agent.
21 Jul 2016 17:44:26
Gotta move Parker and green.
21 Jul 2016 17:45:28
Like NBA said, Mills is a free agent. That number included ONLY the starting 5. Removing Green brings it down to 72, so yes, they can max him out and be at the projected cap line. but that's just the starting 5. Even if they want the worst bench in the league, they will still need to be at like 130 million to fill out the roster. Not at all the Spurs m. o. Would be interesting, but don't see it happening.
21 Jul 2016 04:11:09
Too many people are saying Rudy Gay to the Bucks, who should have no intentions to sign a SF that requires so many shots while trying to develop giannis, parker, and middleton.
They need to get rid of Monroe and the only team interested seems to be the Spurs.
The Spurs need to get rid of Danny Green for cap reasons I believe. didn't look that up myself
The 76ers need a SG/ SF that has some proven talent, because they have none.
Bucks would love more young talent I'm sure. Rashad Vaughn's confidence is not there and he is missing his shots, Brogdon is not a true shooter. Could take something from the Sixers there. They also could use some more defense at the rim, Noel would provide that.
Though all the talk is still about a Okafor trade, Noel is a possibility. Okafor and Simmons have known each other for a long time possibly helping suspected chemistry issues, and Noel would fetch them more in a trade it seems.
Also, the 76ers don't seem to be getting anything good from the Celtics. The Celtics failed to get Durant, Wade, Griffin, Howard, Okafor earlier, Westbrook. they seem like they want to get a big piece without parting from any of their own true assets.
With that, it seems all teams would be at least interested in this trade:
(is not full trade, smaller pieces that fill the gaps become to hard to predict whether it be players or 2nd rnd picks)
Spurs get Monroe
Sixers get Green + (another piece maybe Mills)
Bucks get Noel + (a combo or single player likely a SG/ PG to not take mins from Giannis/ middleton/ parker)
Honestly, I'm not entirely sure why the Spurs have interest in Monroe. But the Bucks need to get rid of him. The Sixers need to get rid of a C/ PF and need some shooting and D for Simmons (Green) . Bucks need to increase potential with the bigs, Plumlee just meshes well, Henson isn't much and Thon Maker is a couple years out at least (needs muscle and maturity) .
Works on Trade Machine for those wondering, what do ya think?
21 Jul 2016 09:00:12
It's not bad, but 3 way trades are hard to do. Even though the Public's consensus value on Noel is way higher than what GMs think, he's still worth a lot more that Monroe, plus the Spurs have Gasol and Aldridge as big men.
21 Jul 2016 14:15:41
Why would the spurs give up their starting sg who has been very solid, for a center who doesn't play defense. Monroe has been a loser his entire career. The spurs are far happier starting aldridge and gasol, they are just giving up green for a backup big man.
Also. I personally think Noel has WORLDS more value at this point than monroe. Thinking th ebucks are stuck with him unless they basically trade him for a late 1st or 2nd rounder.
21 Jul 2016 16:51:31
Honestly I like this trade, I think Bucks may have to give up something more to even out the value a bit. Maybe a2nd rounder, Vaughn, or Ennis to Philly.
@Jalex on behalf of Gerald when you mention the Spurs' bigs, he knows who they have and that's why he says, he doesn't know why the Spurs are interested. But they have come out and said they are interested in trading for Monroe (maybe fill the Duncan role even though they are not relatively close to the same player or style). Obviously the reason is beyond you, me and Gerald, but as a Bucks fan I want Monroe gone and if I can turn him into Noel I'm happy
17 Jul 2016 11:02:39
Memphis: D Green+ 2 rnd pick
Spurs: V Carter+ T Allen
Memphis receive another shooter.
The Spurs receive a veteran and a good defender and they clear capspace next year, so they can sign Westbrook or CP3.
17 Jul 2016 02:45:38
THE TRADE EVERYBODY WOULD HATE TO SEE
GREEN, MILLS, ANDERSON, SIMMONS and a few 1st rd draft picks.
Toss in the rights to a couple of players the spurs have stashed overseas.
WESTBROOK and ROBERSON
OFCOURSE ONLY IF WESTBROOK AGREES TO AN EXTENSION.
SPURS meet gsw in western finals and Westbrook helps the SPURS eliminate the warriors and kd on the way to title #6.
17 Jul 2016 04:49:48
Or Spurs can wait to sign Westbrook in free agency and have a better team then.
17 Jul 2016 05:02:46
That's a horrible return for OKC. Green is a solid role player, and the rest of the guys are bench players. AND the "few 1st rd draft picks" will be 24-30 since they're always in the top 3 in the West.
That equals a top 5 player to you?
18 Jul 2016 15:30:56
Green is one of the best 3&D players also on one of the best contracts. 10 mil per year for 3 more years.
Mills is a better back up than payne and can even start some places.
Simmons with playing time will be better than any wing or gaurd olc has right now aside from westbrook amd the same can be said for anderson. All on cheap contracts. yes i know the spurs picks are usually late in the 1st rd but those picks can be packaged for an earlier pick hell give up 4 1st rounders.
16 Jul 2016 13:02:05
San Antonio Spurs: 2017 Free Agency
■ Think Spurs go for PG-J. Wall/ Washington
and 3F-G. Hayward/ Utah in FA period next
■ Spurs groom D. Murray @ 2G; His Defense
is good, he rebounds, and his ball
handling, mid range shot, and vision of
the game will improve under SA coaching
staff; Love his confidence;
■ My Spurs Fantasy Team → 2017-2018:
PG: J. Wall @ 25M
2G: K. Leonard @ 23M
C: P. Gasol @ 15M
3F: G. Hayward. @ 25M
4F: L. Aldridge @ 25M
Estimated Total of $112-$115M
PG: S. Curry. @ 32M
2G: K. Thompson. @ 18M
C:? @ 12M
3F: K. Durant. @ 30M
4F: D. Green. @ 18M
Estimated Total of $110-$113M
NOTE: I know Wall and Hayward would and
will get more, but playing with an
tradional elite team in the NBA, and
having the chance to win NBA Titles
right now, may make a difference in
signing theses players;
16 Jul 2016 13:10:44
I don't believe John Wall is a free agent next summer pretty sure he is signed through 18-19 season after signing a 5 year rookie max extension that began in 14-15.
Couldn't picture him in a Spurs uniform regardless.
16 Jul 2016 13:31:23
What's hysterical is your estimated totals for the team salaries far exceed the estimate cap. And it's for just the starting 5! Exactly how high above the cap do you believe they will go? Or does money not count for the Spurs?
16 Jul 2016 17:14:26
Reading Comprehension is Fundamental;
■ I said my Fantasy Team with Spurs,
as well as indicating that both
Wall and Hayward would probably get
more if there looking for the cash;
■ I placed the estimate salaries with
Spurs, with Wall and Hayward;
Neither player is on Spur's roster;
■ jaw457→My bad on Wall, your right
on Wall, FA in 2018; Maybe
PG-D. Schroeder/ ATL
■ hamburger→Players I listed for
GS Warriors, are on there roster,
and the salaries I listed next to
them is what they'll be making in
2017-2018; So get a calculator and
ask yourself how GSW are doing it
with just that starting 5! Does
money count for Warriors? That's
$12M @ the GSW 5-Position, combined
for 2 Centers; Yeah, get your
Multiplication Rock On! Count their
salaries with Iggy and Livingston
09 Jul 2016 12:58:15
Spurs gets mcconell and right to dario saric
Celtics gets okafor and danny green
Sixers gets dejounte murray, terry rozier and celtics swap to nets 1st 2017.
09 Jul 2016 13:33:10
sixers say no. they already have kings swap in next years draft and Lakers #1. They just passed on Murray twice with late first round selections. I don't think McConnell or rozier have much trade value, so Okafor and Saric for Murray and the Nets/ Celts pick swap next year, no thanks.
09 Jul 2016 13:45:03
Big no from Spurs. Saric apparently does not want to be a backup, and I'm pretty sure he would not start over Aldridge. Murray has more upside than McConnell as well. Not to say that McConnell doesn't have value, he's just got a lower ceiling than Murray does.
09 Jul 2016 15:04:24
You can't trade a swap so the sixer would be getting nothing in return for two pretty pretty good assets.
09 Jul 2016 17:56:10
Sixers give up way to much for nothing.
05 Jul 2016 22:33:48
Rest of Spurs offseason
With the Gasol signing and subsequent Diaw trade today, the Spurs now have approximately $92M in salaries spent on 11 players:
That leaves little money (approximately $2M) and a couple of players to sign, notably Ginobli. Here's how I would like to see the rest of the offseason play out:
1) Duncan retires - if Durant had agreed to come to the Spurs, I think Duncan stays one more year, but I believe he's done. That clears an additional $5.5M in cap space.
2) Trade Danny Green to Atlanta for Mike Scott. Hawks have the cap space to take on the additional $7M and Coach Bud is plenty familiar with Green. Scott replaces the departing West as a frontcourt depth piece.
3) Sign Allen Crabbe 4 years, $60M. Crabbe has more upside than Green, and could be a very nice young piece.
4) Re-Sign Ginobli on bi-annual exception (2 years, $5.8M) . Allows Spurs to go over the cap to keep him.
5) Re-Sign Boban Marjanovic 1 year, $5.6M. Spurs have exception money to sign him to this deal.
PG - Parker, Mills, Murray
SG - Crabbe, Ginobli, Simmons
SF - Leonard, Anderson, Simmons
PF - Aldridge, Scott
C - Gasol, Boban
Not a team that most likely beats the Warriors, but is getting younger (Murray, Crabbe, Scott) while also staying in the top 2-3 in the west.
06 Jul 2016 02:42:11
▶ Not Feeling Crabbe over Green;
NOTE: Spurs need to hold tight, maybe
sign PF-Thomas Robinson/ BKN; Wait to CASH OUT in 2017 Free Agency when Ginobili, Duncan, and Parker are all gone:
NOTE: Golden State starting 5 is
AWESOME! But I don't hear anymore speaking too much about there new bench players outside of Livingston and Iggy (Both over 31):
NOTE: Golden State defensive middle will hurt come playoffs, because Bogut, Eziele are gone, and if GSW think Draymont can play the Center-5 spot all season long and not be affected by it, they are only LYING to themselves:
NOTE: GSW cash distribution to players within the next 3 years is one of there biggest rivals, outside of Cavaliers and Spurs;▶ Barbosa, Speights, Barnes, Bogut, Ezekiel, and Iggy were a strong familiar rotational unit around Klay, Steph, and Draymont; Now, all of those players can be gone by 2017-2018 season;
NOTE: DON'T Sleep on San Antonio; Even though Boris Diaw is gone; They still have a bench familiar with each other; K. Anderson and J. Simmons are older now, Young Talented Wildcard in 6'5 guard D. Murray, Marjanovich, Bertan, P. Mills, and Ginobili▶
NOTE: Now enter Pau Gasol, more production from the 4/ 5 position than what "The Legend" Tim Duncan can provide; ▶L. Aldridge is comfortable now being the MAN in Riverwalk Country; ▶K. Leonard has another scorer in Pau with him on Offense; ▶Tony Parker know's this is it as a starter for SAS after this season (It's Backup or Traded), because in 2017, when the Salary Cap Rises again, Coach Pop is going for a Top Tier PG (Depending on Murray's Development), or a 2G, or 3F (Leonard to 2G) to complete the SAS unit:
NOTE: Biggest Key to SAS Title Hopes
for 2016-2017 outside of injuries; 2G-Danny Green who shot poorly all season and during playoffs; His outside shooting is key in SAS offense, and he was never consistent last season; Hope his recent laser eye surgery helps; His play is needed badly now, because Pau and LA game open's up even more when 3-Point shooting is hitting;

Philly5224, Parker is under contract for next year at $15.5M, and currently Duncan and Ginobli are under contract for $5.5M between them (all Duncan of course) . With the Pau signing, the Spurs won't be able to cash in next offseason, they'll have approximately $95M on a cap expected to be $108M. No need to wait until next year.
As for Green vs. Crabbe, this is more about age and potential than whether Green is better or not. Green also did recently come out and suggest that team chemistry was an issue last year because of the roster changes. With the additional ones this year, it may be better to move Green than have him become a malcontent.

▶ 2017-2018: Parker will be traded, especially having a year left on his contract; Duncan and Ginobili will be retired; That's about $22M; Ginobili made $3M last season, and his opt-out won't land him $6M come next year in San Antonio;
▶ If you think R. C. Buford, his wife, and Popovich won't trade Parker, Mills, K. Anderson, Green or Marjanovich next year to land another Top Tier FA, You don't NO the San Antonio way; ▶Spurs are probaly already thinking about next year FA class, aiming for players like TOR/ PG-K. Lowery, WAS/ PG-J. Wall, or UTA/ 3F-G. Hayward;▶ Why cash out now in 2016, with everyone else locking down there roster cap room, when the 2017 FA Class will have better players available in both UFA and RFA;
▶ Pau Gasol is a good signing, and maybe the possible signing of BKN/ PF-T. Robinson will solidify the frontcourt will another young rebounging reserve; GSW is the Spurs only real threat for another NBA Title in the West; ▶Injuries or a weak bench @ GS, may give the Spurs a better chance in 2016→ If not, come 2017, the Spurs will have players to trade, GSW won't, especially after Steph Curry signs the largest NBA player contract in NBA history→ Spurs don't waste money just cause everyone else is; But, scared money don't make none, and this is why Spurs remain safe, after that Gasol signing in 2016, and BALL'OUT in 2017; Lowery, Westbrook, D. Schroeder, Curry, J. Wall, G. Hayward, Ibaka to name a few→
NOTE: GSW Payroll will keep them from having a strong bench in the future; They already have Jermaine O'Neil calling to help, so if he thinks he has a chance to make the team, you NO Golden State is in trouble, TROUBLE;
▶ Who has the better BENCH/ Reserves right now→ Spurs or Warriors?

Won't have the space for all that after signing Pau, I read they are trying to move Diaw.
05 Jul 2016 18:35:19
If Duncan retired it'll clear salary.
05 Jul 2016 19:05:11
Looks like Bertans will be coming over, Martin would be the least likely to stay in that scenario.
05 Jul 2016 20:04:58
Duncan retiring clears 5.5 mil they are paying Pau 15 mil, still have to sign Manu/ Boban, don't think they'll keep West or Martin, unless they move Diaw, then maybe.
05 Jul 2016 22:30:27
West goes to GS, Diaw traded to Utah, might keep Martin.
