Spurs delusional offseason plans

Spurs-Celtics

Spurs get Gerald Wallace and 2 2nd round picks
Celtics get Tiago Splitter and 2015 1st rd pick

Spurs sign Kawhi Leonard and Lamarcus Aldridge you know how much to pay

resign Duncan and Manu for a lower price, convince them to stay for 1 more year

T. Parker / P. Mills
D. Green / M. Bellinelli / M. Ginobili
K. Leonard / K. Anderson
L. Aldridge / B. Diaw
T. Duncan / M. Bonner / A. Baynes

19 Apr 2015 18:28:14
Celtics don't want Splitter. They'll take Kawhi and a second rounder for Wallace and 1 first round and a 2nd round pick though. Celtics want D Cousins and may give the farm for him.

19 Apr 2015 19:33:56
Celtics would take splitter. they need a center and would never get a big name free agent to sign

19 Apr 2015 01:14:45
Ugh my last trade got sent before I finished the details. Let's try again.

Sixers take advantage of their cap space ( currently only 24 million in garrenteed deals) and first rounders.

Sixers trade their first this season( 3rd overall) the lakers pick and the okc pick.

Pacers trade Paul George

Sixers then sign kawhi Leonard to a front loaded contract. 25 mill first year and 15 to 20 the next three seasons. This huge first season money would destroy the Spurs if they sign him to a matching deal. They would be considerably over the cap causing taxing with Big names needing to be resigned as well. Be a tough time matching that deal.

This gives the Sixers around two to three million for free agents ( 24+25+16=65) and minium player signings unless cap increase this season coming.

Project starting five

Wroten( explosive point guard)
Leonard
George
Noel
Embiid

That's an instantly tough team. The teams bench will mostly be great vets on small contracts that want to win a chip.

This team would be really young. No one over 25 but have amazing talent and upside.

Should be a playoff team easily and still have even more cap room next year with McGee 12 million dollar contract coming off the books to sign another star after next years deep playoff run. And they'll still have there own and miamis first next season with Dario coming over as well. Huge upside here.

Thoughts.
Ps. Please ignore previously mis sent idea.

19 Apr 2015 13:19:12
Leonard would never sign that contract. You make it sound like he's trying anyway possible to get out of San Antonio in order to play for the sixers. Apparently embiid has been fined tremendously for refusing to go to rehab or conditioning. I'm sure that'll work out great for his career. Wroten is an explosive point guard? Yeah I'll just let that one sit lol. And you want to give up 3 firsts for George? Well that sounds rational. Otherwise great post.

19 Apr 2015 14:36:24
No. No. No.

Look, the Sixers seem to like their big guys: Noel, Embiid, T. Robinson, Sims and Saric if he ever gets here. They seem to like Grant and especially Covington at SF. And the really worked hard to build up those draft picks.

So why would they trade 3 first rounders for George, who's listed as a SF and then sign Leonard, who's also listed as a SF? And after looking at the Spurs box scores, Leonard is actually playing SF.

Plus, if they do that, they haven't filled any of their needs at PG or SG?

If the Sixers are going to do anything with those picks and cap space, I suspect they'll use them to find the right guy that fits what they need- most certainly not to create a roster problem at the SF position. They need a stud back court to go along with what they have. And they might be able to accomplish that without blowing what they've worked so hard to possess.

19 Apr 2015 15:27:08
I'm betting on Leonard having the vision to see that the Spurs are aging and even though pop is an amazing coach he can't create a Duncan from no where. Leonard would be their only player come 2017.

Now look at the Sixers. Embiid a high upside guy who was fined earlier in the season for missing none basketball activities. It's basically missing physical theory. You look at him now and that's almost a mute point. He's down in weight to at least 265 or 270. Super lean and made of muscle and of course. Only 20

Noel should be a defensive rookie of the year. His scoring isn't good enough for Roy but he also just started developing on the end of the floor toward the end of the season. Either way Embiid and Noel in the paint is scary good defensively at the very least.

Paul George is an excellent player who is only 25 but of course the injury hurts big time. Pacers were looking to rebuild according to many reports so three first is more then they could get in most deals. Sixers could even throw in the Miami pick of that gets the Deal done. George when healthy, and from what I saw in his limited action he's perfectly fine, is a defensive player who does it all. Rebounding scoring and most important for me. Defense!

Leonard is a free agent and he'd see those three defensive first players and relize not only could he get a crazy big contract to play in philly. But he's also creates probably the best defensive starting five in basketball. Leonard's probably the best defense sg in the game right now. George was one of the best defensive sf in the game. Noel should easily be defensive rookie of the year. And Embiid is suppose to be some kind of natural basketball superstar.
All this even after those deals the Sixers have cap space to sign a few more players.

Then next year McGee contract comes off the book as well an increase in the salary cap in general. The Sixers could be looking at another thirty million in cap space to add to that super defensive team come 2017 after a deep playoff run in 2016. Plus they'll have saric coming over( the best euro out there right now). Their own first rounder and the Miami first rounder. The potential is off the charts.

My point is Leonard wouldn't just be leaving the Spurs for the money. He'd be leaving for the team being better then the situation he's is currently.

This would be my pitch to him at the very least. You'd have to prove it to him first by getting George though. That's the part that's difficult. But sixers have all the assets to get a deal done for him.

19 Apr 2015 15:31:12
O yeah and wroten being explosive part. When he startered this season he averaged 20 point a game at age 20. The guy is out of control at times but he's as fast as anyone at the pg spot. That's why I called him explosive. Not a really great player. He just has to learn how to slow the game down and make smarter decisions. That comes with time. Again only twenty.

19 Apr 2015 16:31:16
I would love to sign Lenard(although he probably stays in SA), but not the trade for George. Logjam at sf, and no depth at all at guard. George, leonard, grant, and Covington are all best at SF. Use the pucks to build a backcourt. The guards develop quicker then the bigs. they will all be meshing in 2 years.

19 Apr 2015 17:50:49
Philly rich.

Because Leonard is a sg not a small forward. He can defend small forwards but that doesn't mean he can't play sg. Plus. If your telling my you'd rather have Covington or saric then Paul George or kawhi Leonard at either spots then your completely wrong. Saric is not a top twenty caliber player and neither is Covington. However having both come off the bench would be really impressive because they're good and solid players. That's how you build championship team. Take really good player and make them second best at those spots on your team.

19 Apr 2015 19:29:32
I like it but doubt leanord would sign in Philly and teams usually do not compete for championships without a top tier PG but I guess they could

16 Apr 2015 16:33:15
Spurs get Jeremy Lamb

Thunder get #27 pick

16 Apr 2015 19:23:43
Spurs have the 25 pick and not willing to trade it

16 Apr 2015 21:22:59
They would trade it, just not for Lamb.

16 Apr 2015 12:46:52
OKC-NO-SPURS

Okc get kawhi and tyreke Evans
Trade KD and waiters and lamb

Russ/Augustine
Evans/ morrow/Roberson
Kawhi/singler/jones
Ibaka/mcgaray/collision
Kanter/Adams

Pelicans get waiters danny green splitter and thunder pick

Holiday
Waiters
Green
Davis
Splitter

Spurs get Durant and lamb
Parker
Lamb
Durant
Duncan
Sign a center from free agency

16 Apr 2015 13:31:41
Kawhi is a FA they could just sign him if they wanted too.

16 Apr 2015 15:41:20
He's a RFA, the Spurs can match any offer (they likely will).

16 Apr 2015 16:12:43
Leonard ain't leaving spurs ain't trading him

16 Apr 2015 20:14:57
You MUST be a OKC fan to propose that trade

15 Apr 2015 23:23:49
LAL-SAC

LAL trade Hill, Young, '15 1st Ed pick (projected at #4)

SAC trade D Cousins

SAC is rumored to want to trade Boogie and it's rumored he wants a trade. They get Hill's expiring $9 mil contract which has a team option and a bench scorer in Young. They also get the projected #4 draft pick along with their own #6 projected pick. They can draft Mudiay or Russel to be their PG of the future or they can try and package both picks for a veteran and the #1 pick (Towns or Okafor).

LAL are rumored to want to shop Young. They can flip their top 5 pick this year for an instant star and compete next season in Kobe's last year. The Lakers would need to make a huge move in free agency too. They should offer Kawhi a max deal (4 yr $72M) and make the Spurs match. If they miss out on Leonard, they should offer near max offer to Jimmy Butler. I think they need a vet PG too, sign Mo Williams to 1 year deal.

PG: Mo Williams/Price
SG: Kobe/Clarkson
SF: Leonard/Ellington or W Johnson
PF: Randle/Kelly/Black
C: Cousins/Davis/Sacre

16 Apr 2015 13:07:06
Not enough for cousins

16 Apr 2015 18:32:47
They have a late 1st rd pick they can include this year too. If Cousins is going to demand a trade getting a top 5 pick in this year's draft in addition to their own top 10 pick might be enticing enough to pull the trigger.

15 Apr 2015 00:16:06
Hornets offseason

-Trade Stephenson and #9 pick to Spurs for Green (2yr 19m) and #26 pick

-Trade Henderson and #39 pick to Lakers for a 2016 protected 2nd round pick (and cap room)

Draft:
26-Rondae Hollis Jefferson

(Al Jefferson uses player option)
-Sign Omer Asik 2yr 20m

-Re-sign Mo Williams 2yr 10m

-Sign Marcus Thornton 1yr 4m

-Re-sign Bismack Biyombo 3yr 15m

Lineup:
Walker/Williams/Roberts
Green/Thornton/Hairiston
MKG/Hollis-Jefferson/Hairiston
Zeller/Vonleh/Willliams
Asik/Biyombo/Maxiell

Much better than this years team with newly added perimeter scoring threats and low post defense

15 Apr 2015 12:35:28
I see Rondae Hollis Jefferson is this year's style pick.

15 Apr 2015 19:34:37
Spurs wouldn't touch Lance with a 10 foot pole.

15 Apr 2015 23:42:00
Remember the same thing happened with Boris Diaw? Look what the Spurs have turned him into

14 Apr 2015 21:55:05
Spurs
Gasol chase

First. trade splitter

Spurs would have to do a trade to full out the roster dedmon from magic and cotton from jazz

15 Apr 2015 16:32:29
Duncan and Ginobli should tell them to ram it. Adjusting is one thing, that's playing for nothing.

13 Apr 2015 01:01:22

13 Apr 2015 13:53:11
Knicks aren't giving everything to OKC, and not getting durant back. The spurs are giving only Splitter to OKC, yet somehow end up with the best player in return?

13 Apr 2015 22:33:59
Pizza by stating what you said have little to no value for D.Green and K.Leonard = can't help you their kid you can't judge talent. can't help you their either buddy. once again you probably look at the stats of Melo and Durant say wow they are better K.Leonard. and not understand the team concept which Spurs win under. Also Leonard much better defender than both Melo and Durant. like P.George I take Leonard over both Durant and Melo.

14 Apr 2015 13:12:33
The point was cut out the Spurs. I far prefer Durant. Leonard is very good. Wouldn't say elite. Green is slightly above average. Just the truth. Yes the Spurs team won a championship. So how does that translate with only Leonard in New York? Congrats, you take Leonard over Durant and melo. You are the only one. Really. To say his talents are above Durant, which you just said, is just laughable. Don't tell me Leonard won a championship and Durant didn't. That was the argument against lebron a few years ago. Oh and I believe Parker Duncan and ginobli may have helped with that victory a tad.

14 Apr 2015 13:12:46
Sorry kid ;)

12 Apr 2015 21:43:07
Hornets-Spurs

Hornets get Danny Green (2yr 16m), #27 pick, and a 2016 2nd rd pick

1. Marc Gasol would not come at a discount
And
2. Mills is not worth anything close to a first rounder and Raptors don't need a PG anyway

06 Apr 2015 16:10:35
I don't see the Spurs signing guy to max deals. They rarely give max contracts. Not even to greats like Duncan and parker. I think Lenard leaves unless offered a max deal.

Which means Spurs would be in serious trouble if those guys retire.

07 Apr 2015 00:30:02
U want to over pay green and restock with no talent guys? Hell no

Duncan and ginobili retire,
Pay Leonard
Sign Monroe
Trade splitter and let green walk
Sign a shooter Kevin booker or RJ hunter

Saves the spurs money and gets younger
Diaw contract isn't full guarantee if they choose to let him go
2016 go hard after Anthony davis

31 Mar 2015 18:28:55
Patty mills is most definitely worth no where near the 21st pick. If you get a 2nd for that guy that would be a miracle.

23 Mar 2015 11:27:42
SAS-BOS-NY

SAS get Jose Calderon and Tyler Zeller

BOS get Tiago Splitter and 2nd from NY

NY get Cory Joseph

Spurs then,

G.Monroe/A.Baynes/T.Zeller

23 Mar 2015 13:16:30
Giving up Zeller who is younger and has a better upside just for an additional pick. No thanks. Ainge can only do so much with 10 gazillion picks. Zeller will be Boston's back up after they pick up a true rim protector. Wouldn't surprise me if they use Smart as a trade chip for D Cousins.

23 Mar 2015 14:36:34
Smart is awful and immature

23 Mar 2015 14:39:44
knicks won't do it

23 Mar 2015 16:42:31
Joseph's an FA, why wouldn't the Knicks just sign him instead.

22 Mar 2015 03:19:41
That is soooo bad for the Spurs it's hilarious. Leanord>Melo. Green>Hardaway. Parker>Calderon. Splitter> Early. Belineli and Joseph> 26. And by the way there is no way that Jahil Okafor falls to the 4th pick in the draft

22 Mar 2015 10:06:05
Why u hate the spurs?. Spurs say no and delete your gm number

22 Mar 2015 14:33:18
Im assuming the lakers trade their 4th pick? And for the 4th pick they get all that? Yeaaa, that's a big ole pass. Good try though.

21 Mar 2015 19:07:39
l

Draft day trade
Spurs - jazz

Spurs get t Burke, t booker, bryce cotton and 2015 first rnd pick

Jazz get mills, diaw, anderson, spurs 2nd round pick

21 Mar 2015 20:05:56
Hahahahhahahahahahahhaah so the Spurs get the better players AND the first rounder. Gotcha.

21 Mar 2015 21:37:37
Why are the Jazz going to do this? This trade makes no sense.

21 Mar 2015 01:56:42
76ers / Spurs

76ers trade Lakers #1 next year(more valuable in 2017, only 1-3 protected), OKC;s #1 and Covington to spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

Nerlens Noel(23pts/14rb/3 blks/5 stls vs knicks tonight) is playing like a beast!! Noel and Embiid will be something special for years to come. Hinkie, PLEASE don't mess with this frontcourt. if possible, Sixers draft DeAngelo Russell. The more expert analysis I read, Russell looks like the guy for philly. I think only Miami;s #1(11-16)will come into play this year. That means a possibility of 2 number ones next year(OKC's and our own). Draft Grant or Kaminsky with Miami's pick. Find a way to get Dario Saric over here, #1 NBA prospect in entire European league. Leonard would be the rising star on a team full of young studs.
Spurs do it to gain a top(4-8)pick in nexts years lottery, another #1with OKC;s pick, and add a quality young scorer like Covington. Possibly 3 valuable pieces to the rebuild once Duncan and Ginobili call it a career. I know 2 number ones sounds like a lot to give for leonard, but even hinkie said "you can't hit on all your picks". Leonard is only 23 and is an awesome 2-way, high-energy wing.
I think this is fair value and makes sense for both teams.
Comments?

21 Mar 2015 07:26:39
Sixers say no. I really don't think he would be a good fit in philly. And in this trade the sixers r giving up too much. I think its better to just have mcrae and covington to play small forward.

21 Mar 2015 13:01:15
gosixers26. what makes you think leonard wouldn't be a good fit in philly? he fills a position of need, he's young, he scores and defends, has an NBA championship mvp award, and was brought up in the same system s brett brown. I couldn't think of a BETTER fit. Were's the downside?

21 Mar 2015 13:44:31
The Spurs say know. Leonard is proven and basically untradable. Especially for a couple picks. That's the difference between the Spurs and sixers. They don't gamble. Thus they win. Noel is doing great. Against the Knicks and with NO ONE ELSE on the team. Embiid hasn't done a thing. More I hear about him, more I think he's going to be a waste of potential. Lazy. Injury prone. Cares more about fame than winning. I think at some point the sixers will need to have an environment where free agents want to come. Until then, they won't win. Heinke wants full credit for building the team through the draft but has done nothing to prove he will do that except have a few project prospects and trade away the rookie of the year. Sadly, sixers will likely be awful for a couple more years and then move on without heinke.

21 Mar 2015 14:16:36
Jvoug. While I definately see the interest in Leonard it's giving up a ton to get a guy who's going to be making a ton next year. I just don't know if he's a star player. I do see why the Spurs would do it. They need to restock the team due to age. Duncan and parker can play for a few more years maybe. But three more?? Seems like a stretch. This would give them assets to rebuild ASAP.

21 Mar 2015 14:18:47
Actually stretch what I said earlier. I thought the Sixers where including their own pick this year. If it's only the lakers pick okc pick and covington then I'd definately do that. Fills a hole we need and still let's us draft a Russell or mudiay. Hopefully.

21 Mar 2015 14:43:12
He's a good fit. I think you're completely over paying.

I looked at his stats. He's really a 13ppg and 6rpg player. He boosted his scoring by shooting more, and reducing his field goal efficiency from 52% to 46%.

The Lakers pick could be the #1 pick in the draft. I don't trade that unless I'm getting a real game changing stud. I mean someone that you know for certain is getting you 20 every night. I want the guy Leonard is trying to stop.

21 Mar 2015 15:49:42
phillyrich1. It is IMPOSSIBLE for the Lakers pick to be #1 overall next year, it is 1-3 protected. Best case scenario is between #4-8. And everybody boosts their scoring by shooting more, really? He's 23, a lockdown defender, a scoring wing that we need, an NBA champion MVP, and essentially we would be getting him for MCW(the laker pick), eating one year of javale McGee contract(the OKC pick), and a nice role player in Covington. I do it in a second.

21 Mar 2015 17:48:01
No point for sixers to make this trade

21 Mar 2015 21:01:01
No point for sixers to get players in which they can win. And he averaged those stats with Duncan. Manu. Parker. Yes it's less than say mcw. But then again sixers fans are used to bloated stats due to no good teammates. Ergo they think they have the best players in the league yet somehow the worst record in the league. Mmmmk

22 Mar 2015 03:51:59
Actually have to agree with part of "personal pans" post. Leonard is someone philly could win with. A proven winner and would bring great young leadership to the sixers. Don't think it actually would ever happen, but if it does philly lands a great piece to the rebuild.

22 Mar 2015 12:10:21
jvoug: I completely understand that this year the Lakers pick is top 5 protected and that next year its top 3 protected. But after that its UNPROTECTED. (In my above post I never referenced next year. I was looking an additional year down the road.)

The Lakers very easily could be in the top 3 next year, leaving the Sixers with a rare unprotected pick from a bad team. With Kobe on the way out and breaking down, its not a crazy idea that the Sixers get a shot at the first pick in the summer of 2017.

As for Leonard, I think he's a good player. I just think you're offering too much. To me he's the last piece of the puzzle. But the Sixers don't yet know what pieces they have.

I say we shake hands and go our separate ways. I like your guy. I just am not ready for the price tag you're suggesting.

22 Mar 2015 14:44:57
I think a fair trade makes both teams think hard, and measure the pros and cons. This is a fair trade IMO. can't wait to see the sixers next year with a healthy embiid and noel upfront. should be a fun year!

Jvoug: Agreed. They have the toughest pieces in place- the bigs- (assuming Embiid is healthy, and awesome).
They also have a what I think will be a deep bench in place and at reasonable cap numbers.
If they get two of the PG, SG or SF in this draft, they'll be ready to go.
And don't forget that Saric is stashed overseas and they have the Lakers pick in the bank, maybe the OKC pick in the bank and cap space.
Just think of where they were two years ago: a young talent at PG, average talent after that, no cap space, no picks, middle of the pack.

Knicks offseason. Expected cap next season 66 mil current cap allocated for 16' 32.5 mil

Trade calderon Thj and early to Charlotte for first char does this because mo Williams is at least going to cost 7 mil next year at the level he's playing so calderon can be the backup instead, Thj gives them cheap insurance in case lance doesn't work out(current per: 9) early is a sweetener. Char has 20 mil coming off the books assuming al doesn't pick up his option so they can make that deal

Draft Karl towns
Draft frank kaminsky

Leaves about 36 mil for free agency before resigning own guys

Sign Corey Joseph 6-7 Mil per year a lot to match for Parkers backup spurs players should integrate really well to triangle offense

Sign khris Middleton 11-12 mil per year. Unfortunately it's not a secret that Middleton is a 3-d stud who's young have to overpay to get him from the bucks who's core is being built around Parker McW and the Greek freak

Kevin love is seemingly becoming annoyed with the stand in the corner and wait for kyrie and lebron to pass offense if he opts out offer him a max 18 mil.

If he opts in offer max to Greg monroe 15 mil

Sign Alexis anjica using full MLE 5 mil per year

Go over cap to Resign shved, Amundson, Bargani or jah(vet min), cole
Bring up thanisis

Pg: Joseph-Gallo
Sg: Middleton-Shved
Sf: melo-thanisis

The contracts for both Joseph and Ajinca are way to high.

Calderon Cash to Sixers 34th 44th
Larkin for Corey Joseph 4yr 16mil
Beverly 4yr 32mil
Early Hardaway for Terrence Ross
sign Crowder and Rasual Butler 2yr 5mil each
buy 2nd
big trade-Okafor for Noah and Gasol
sign Thanasis, Galloway Amundson Thomas league min

Beverly/Joseph/Galloway 13 mil
Ross/Butler/Thanasis 6 mil
Melo/Crowder/Thomas 26 mil
Gasol/R.Christmas-34/Amundson 10mil
Noah/Upshaw-44th/Diagne-56th 14mil
payroll 69 mil 8 mil picks, FAs, RFAs are sign

Bulls might need to turn the chapter with Rose. Butler and Okafor can be corner stone with another Chicago product in front the crowd.

Sixers need vet PG who can bring some leadership to young team and very low cost to get him.

Larkin is going cost Spurs less than Joseph. Larkin quicker, Joseph is better, but than again who is better under Pop.

Raptors need resign Johnson and Valanciunas
They lack offense and Hardaway is better offensive player than Ross and Ross overall game is better.

12 Mar 2015 01:12:00
I like it all except for trading okafor, if anything try to trade him some how for cousins or not at all and start melo at PF

12 Mar 2015 02:04:07
Sixers say hell no

12 Mar 2015 13:10:19
Sixers don't wnat Calderon. You keep him ny!

12 Mar 2015 14:25:21
wait. okafor for noah AND gasol? LOL

12 Mar 2015 21:32:00
Bulls owner is cheap. not only he saves in the trade. Okafor the home town kid jersey sell will be crazy in Chicago Similar to Rose. free money to sign Jimmy and still space to bring quality defensive player(chandler/Marc Gasol) next to Okafor.

Rose/Hinrich/brooks
Butler/Snell/Moore
Dunleavy/McDermott/L.Nash
T.Chandler/Mirotic/Bairstow
Okafor/Gibson/Damian Jones
