How will the money work for Spurs with those signings?

06 May 2016 21:52:14
Duncan and Ginobli are retiring, and Duncan would not be ok with coming off the bench.

06 May 2016 21:52:55
And Tony Parker isn't coming off the bench either.

06 May 2016 17:49:20
Spurs: C Anthony
Knicks: P Mills+ D Green.

06 May 2016 18:32:54
Horrible for both teams.

06 May 2016 19:20:22
I think that would be a good deal for NY
Mills and Green are two great role players, who can become an all star once in their career. And they're two players that can improve Porzingis play next year.

06 May 2016 19:44:20
Possible All-Stars, that's funny.

Not a good trade for either team.

01 May 2016 22:56:17
The Celts most likely will continue their trend of not being able to land a Prime FA.
I believe the big fishes Durant and Horford will pay us a visit but end up saying No.
Durant will most likely return to OKC on a 1yr. deal to give it one last try with the Thunder and Horford either gets the big $$ to return to the Hawks or signs with the Spurs.

The only names left that draw interest to me in FA are H. Whiteside, J. Dudley, and/ or N. Batum as potential fits for the Celts. Wise choices in the draft and a smart trade or two should be the way to go to make Boston a 55 win team next season.

My idea of Celtics Off-Season Moves:

(Rnd.1 players only mentioned)

-#3 B. Hield
-#16 D. Valentine
-#23 A. J. Hammonds

Utah gets: K. Olynyk, A. Bradley, A, Johnson
2016 2nd. Rnd. Cleveland pick

Boston gets: D. Favors

FREE AGENCY- Hassan Whiteside

PG-Thomas/ Rozier
SG-Smart/ Hield/ Hunter
SF-Crowder/ Valentine/ Young
PF-Favors/ Jerebko/ Mickey
C -Whiteside/ Hammonds


03 May 2016 12:28:36
I would rather keep Bradley and not get Favors.

03 May 2016 18:24:54
Could you explain to your reasons why?

30 Apr 2016 18:03:37
Spurs offseason if they win again

Timmy and Manu retire. Gives Spurs an extra $8.5M in Cap Space. With retirements, Spurs have about $17M to spend.

1) Danny Green to Memphis for Tony Allen and a 2nd. Grizz desperately need outside shooting, Spirs save $4.5M and add a tough veteran defender.

2) sign Al Horford at 4years and $80M. Though there has been talk of Pau Gasol, Spurs would be better served adding Al, a much better defender and younger option. The cost is higher, and Al potentially could get more, but he seems like a player that would sacrifice a few dollars to join a winning culture like the Spurs.

3) Sign Jason Terry 1year MLE.

4) David West takes Vet money.

5) Pick up Simmons player option

2016-17 Spurs

PG - Parker, Mills, 1st Rd pick
SG - Allen, Anderson, Veteran FA
SF - Kawhi, Anderson, Simmons
PF - Aldridge, West, Diaw
C - Horford, Diaw, Boban?

Spurs now have frontcourt for the future set, enough depth in the backcourt, and always find Veteran FA's to take less money to fill gaps.

30 Apr 2016 18:17:59
Sorry, forgot to add Terry to the backcourt.

30 Apr 2016 19:03:50
I think the Spurs would be better off signing Gasol or Noah to a cheaper contract and using the rest of money to retain good depth.

01 May 2016 00:31:22
I think Noah would want a big deal and not going for cheap. He going to be looking for something close to max. Before he hurt his knee he was forth in MVP voting in 2013.

01 May 2016 15:07:45
he could look for near max all he wants. No chance anyone gives it. No chance. He has had a steady decline since that great season,3-4 years ago. If you think a player can get near max with 4pts, 8reb and health concerns. I mean, I guess asik was a cheap contract in your eyes.

30 Apr 2016 06:59:19
In the surprise of the century, the Hawks pull off the biggest off season upset in NBA history and sign Durant.
Resign Horford
Let Bazemore walk cause he will get paid a lot.
Trade splitter to free up cap space.
Sign Scola and Nene to a cheap veteran deals.
Teague/ Schroder/ Hinrich
Korver/ Hardaway/ Draft Pick
Durant/ Sefolosha/ Patterson
Millsap/ Scola/ Scott
Horford/ Nene/ Muscala

Durant wants to win a championship and this Hawks roster is a playmaking superstar away from that. It's obviously not going to happen but Durant would be moving to an eastern conference that only has the Cavs and not the Warriors and Spurs.

It's obviously not going to happen but if Durant wants to win a championship, Atlanta would be a good place to go.

30 Apr 2016 09:29:26
Atlanta 's a good destination, but if he want to win a championchip, he could sign with the Warriors.

30 Apr 2016 12:42:45
I don't see durant moving to a team where he is literally the youngest starter. I mean. Doesn't seem like a long term, promising situation. No?

30 Apr 2016 12:47:27
He could sign with the Warriors, but they are much tighter against the cap than the Hawks are, and would need to do considerably more to clear cap space for him.

30 Apr 2016 13:33:29
Durant is not going to the Warriors.

30 Apr 2016 14:59:54
I say you should then package Teague or Schroeder with other assets for a better starting SG.

30 Apr 2016 16:57:24
I really feel like Durant signing with the Warriors would be bad for them. The Warriors thrive on ball movement and the ball tends to stick in Durants hand a lot. They also would have to give up some key assets (Barnes, Iguadola, Maybe Bogut) to cut cap. That would seriously hurt their bench depth which is one of the best in the league. They are already set for the future with the roster they have. No need to fix what isn't broken.

@mikerockwell - That's a good point on him being e youngest player, but since he is a top 3 player in the world, he can easily attract free agents to play with him. Especially if they win a championship

@NBA I agree on that trade. Who would you consider trading for? With Durant at 3, that's a big lineup so Bud could move Teague to the 2 and Schroder at point sometimes and have a lot of playmaking on the court at once.

30 Apr 2016 17:10:52
@NBA how about:
Teague/ Schroder and Splitter for Olidipo and a 2nd.

This move is more to cut cap space but it does give the Hawks a good young wing defender.

Schroder/ FA/ Hinrich
Olidipo/ Korver/ Hardaway
Durant/ Sefolosha/ Patterson
Millsap/ Scola/ Scott
Horford/ Nene/ Muscala

Orlando could try and trade Payton for another wing and then they have a post defender to back up Vucevic.

30 Apr 2016 21:25:49
If durant chooses the warriors be crazy if no team let golden state dump bogut or Iggy to get all the cap o sign Durant.

But Philly should look at getting Iggy back. Thunder pick for Iggy.

29 Apr 2016 17:45:24
So here's a hypothetical situation.
Let's say the cavs lose in the finals, which I have no doubt in mind they'll make it they're but sure enough they will lose. Whether it be the spurs or the Warriors who they will play, they'll lose, They're just not ready.

So with that in mind let's put together a 3 team deal between the cavs/ suns/ 76ers.

Cavs trade:Kyrie Irving
Cavs recieve: Eric Bledsoe maybe Tyson chandler maybe not, and Robert covington and the 2016 Miami pick from philly.

Suns trade: Eric Bledsoe, Archie goodwin, and if eitherteam agrees to take on his ridiculous contract TYSON CHANDLER.
Suns recieve: nerlens noel, Nik stauskas, and and Hollis thompson. Maybe a future first to sweeten the deal.

76ers trade:nerlens noel, Robert covington, Hollister thompson, Nik stauskas Miami 2016 pick, future first round pick.
76ers recieve: kyrie irving, archie goodwin.

Just an idea here, I'm trying to find sensible ways to revive my sixers, in sense they'd trade for kyrie, draft Brandon ingram, and they already have big jah, on top of a possible healthy Joel embiid and dario saris joint the team, that'd be several building blocks in place to secure a bright future for the team, also giving kyrie keys to lead the team which I think he can handle and what he wants and won't get sitting behind lebron.

29 Apr 2016 18:21:45
They Cavs are in win now mode and I don't think that the Sixers or the Suns have any pieces that are better than what the Cavs already have.

29 Apr 2016 18:25:34
They wouldn't be losing much at all, Bledsoe is more than capable and he and lebron are close friends, I think he'd actually fit better. He's defensive minded, he's a more willing passers than kyrie and they'd be getting a sharp shooter in covington, I think they'd be gaining more in this deal than they'd lose.

29 Apr 2016 18:35:15
Bledsoe has gone down with a season ending injury each of the last 3 seasons, so to me that's a big red flag. Also Irving is capable of taking over games if/ when Lebron doesn't, and no one that is coming in or who is left on the team will be able to do that. Yeah I agree it definitely gives them more depth but it takes away a lot more offense that they need.

29 Apr 2016 18:44:44
This is delusional, cavs don't dump Irving.

29 Apr 2016 18:45:11
True but gaining more offense is where free agency would come into play, they could very well more love as well. and kyrie is an injury prone player also.

29 Apr 2016 18:58:00
Lakers fan didn't you try and get the Cavs to "dump" Irving for Russell and Randle?

29 Apr 2016 21:28:34
Never said that, nice try.

29 Apr 2016 21:37:17
Cavs only trade Irving for Paul. I said sign and trade clarkson plus pick to clippers, Irving to Lakers, and Paul to cavs

Then said love to Boston

Three nets pick and smart to Knicks

Melo to cavs.

29 Apr 2016 23:18:13
It would have to be Noel and the sixers first, maybe add Covington or keep him and add okc pick or heat pick.

26 Apr 2016 15:47:58

Pacers get 29th pick

Spurs get Solomon Hill.

26 Apr 2016 15:16:17

Spurs get Afflalo and Teletovic

NYK get Bledsoe and Danny Green
Sign Noah 2yr/ 20 mil
Sign Deng 1yr/ 10 mil

PHX get Calderon, Derrick Williams, Matt Bonner and 1st rd pick from Spurs and 1st rd pick from NYK in 2017
Sign Barnes 4yr/ 70 mil

Parker/ Patty Mills
Afflalo/ Martin
Leonard/ Ginobli
Aldridge/ Teletovic/ West
Duncan/ Diaw/ Majanovic

Bledsoe/ DJ Augustin
Green/ Galloway
Melo/ Deng

Booker/ Archie/ Malachi Richardson (#29 via SAS)
Barnes/ TJ Warren/ Michael Gbinije (#34)
Bender/ (#4)/ Jon Leuer/ D. Williams

26 Apr 2016 15:37:57
I'm a no as a spurs fan.

26 Apr 2016 15:39:47
Afflalo and Teletovic will be free agents.

24 Apr 2016 15:05:02
Knicks offseason rebuild

-4 team trade with Cavs, Celtics, 76ers
Knicks give: Melo, 2018 top 7 protected 1st rd pick
Knicks get: Okafor, Jerami Grant, #26 pick, 2018 2nd rd pick

-3 team trade with Spurs and Kings
Knicks get Collison and McLemore
Spurs get Lopez and Jerian Grant
Kings get Danny Green

26- Malik Beasley

-Stretch Jose Calderon if no trade is found

Free agency:
-Sign Evan Turner 3yr 40m
-Sign Miles Plumlee 3yr 23m
-Re-sign Langston Galloway 4yr 33m
-Re-sign Derrick Williams 3yr 22m
-Re-sign Lance Thomas 2yr 15m
-Bring over Willy Hernangomez (draft rights)
-Re-sign Sasha Vujacic 1yr minimum

Collison/ Galloway/ Wroten
McLemore/ Beasley/ Vujacic
Turner/ Thomas/ Grant
Porzingis/ Williams/ Hernangomez
Okafor/ Plumlee/ O'Quinn.

24 Apr 2016 17:49:11
Most or the signings are below what they'll get on the market, and I would have liked to have seen the balance of the four team trade.

24 Apr 2016 18:43:55
Thanks for making ny softener and slower.
Over value Okafor and McLemore or under value Melo and Lopez.

24 Apr 2016 19:10:30
Okafor is 20 years old. He has tons of room and time to improve and is already a decent player. He could be an excellent fit in New York beside Porzingis.
McLemore is 23 years old. He needs a change of scenery as Sacramento hasn't worked out for him. New York could be that place.
Melo is about to be 32 years old and he has already started to decline and it will be all downhill from here. He isn't on a good contract and has never won an NBA championship.
Lopez is 28 years old so he could maybe improve some but he could also decline some. He isn't on a good contract either and is just an average NBA starter.

24 Apr 2016 21:23:16
Okafor. True

Mcclemore, bust

Melo improved as a team player. Especially with no team around him.

Lopez is a solid starter. And with the cap boom, very team friendly.

Knicks pass.

24 Apr 2016 23:02:29
Okay then what if the Knicks give a 2018 top 10 protected 1st rd pick.

23 Apr 2016 19:25:26

If Duncan retire

Kings gets: D. Green

Knicks gets: Collison, McLemore

Spurs gets: Lopez, 2nd Knicks.

23 Apr 2016 19:44:59
It could work, I think the trade may need to be revised a little bit though.

23 Apr 2016 20:54:30
What do the Knocks do for a center?

23 Apr 2016 22:27:00
Maybe the Knicks should send Jerian Grant to the Spurs instead of the 2nd rd pick.

24 Apr 2016 03:35:14
They sign one!

Horford's on the market, I would guess you would want to make a run at him first and get his commitment before making this deal.

Knicks can also be a bit flexible as Zinger could move to the five if it's a quality PF that they find.

20 Apr 2016 00:02:03
San Antonio Spurs 2016/ 17

Let Duncan and Ginobili walk. Spurs dig deep to sign Batum who takes LESS MONEY to win a championship, play with his French teammates (Parker and Batum) and former Blazer teammate (Aldridge) . Spurs start Mahinmi at center and play small for most of the game with Batum at the 4 and Green off the bench. Batum and Leonard will dominate the wings defensively and this team would beat the Warriors in WCF 2017.

Boban - 2yrs/ 6 mill
David West - 1yr/ 2 mill

Nico Batum - 4yrs/ 80 mill
Ian Mahinmi - 3yrs/ 15 mill

PG - Parker/ Mills
SG - Leonard/ Green/
SF - Batum/ Anderson/ Simmons
PF - Aldridge/ Diaw
C - Mahinmi/ West/ Boban.

21 Apr 2016 16:21:27
Sign batum to 20 million a year is s terrible idea for any team. I know the cap is up but why give middle tier guys so much money?

21 Apr 2016 17:22:41
Agree tre.

16 Apr 2016 00:08:22
Spurs offseason

- Duncan and Manu retire

Resign: D. West and K. Martin

Let Boban walk

Sign: Batum (near max)



Knicks gets: Green

Spurs gets: Lopez

Parker/ Mills
Batum/ Martin
Leonard/ Anderson
Aldridge/ West
Lopez/ Diaw

Spurs build a group that already know each other. Parker, Batum and Diaw are all French and played on the national team together. Aldridge and Lopez were starting together in Portland and had success there. Letting Green go may be hard but his shooting has declined and Batum would make them more versatile at the 2.

16 Apr 2016 02:55:16
Green shooting has declined this season but he's still a threat from 3 point range and he's solid on D. Also, his contract is a steal.

16 Apr 2016 03:00:31
How about don't trade Green. don't resign Martin. Sign Noah and Batum.

Pg Parker/ Mills
Sg Batum/ Green
Sf Leonard/ Anderson
Pf Aldridge/ West
Ce Noah/ Diaw

This only happens if Batum sign for around 15-16mil only and Noah for around 10mil and play for championship.

16 Apr 2016 05:16:31
Batum and Aldridge had a very bad relationship in Portland, I don't think he would be a good signing.

16 Apr 2016 05:47:51
They should sign Pau. He is a perfect fit for the system.

16 Apr 2016 06:05:13
They are too old they need younger legs.

16 Apr 2016 18:47:39
Does any care about salary cap.

18 Apr 2016 00:58:36
If all spurs opt out they have 72 mil used with 89 total so they would have 17 mil to sign al horford or for four years 80 mil. Then resign players who Wanna stay and get paid about same amount but have the stayed as Parker, green, Leonard, Aldridge, and horford.

09 Apr 2016 07:57:39
Good for cavs if lose to golden state or spurs in finals. Trade Irving, shumpert and Smith to the Sixer's for first round pick and noel. Sixers would now have a star to go with okafor/ embiid and trade one them for a small or shooting guard. then sign opposite one. should be able to get bazemore or batum off the market. Hornets not going to pay batum because they got mkg.
Boston get love and Thompson. They would still have tons of cap left. Least twenty mil.

Cavs get 3 picks from Brooklyn and cap relief

Cavs just dumped 60 mil in cap. They now have money to spend and sign players. cavs would have James 22 first year and max the rest, Frye 8 mil, noel 3.5,1.5 cap hold for delly, and 54 mil in cap to spend if cap at 89. they can draft Simmons and buddy @ 1 and 3. Then they can give derozan 20, rondo 15, and Whiteside 19. then use bird rights and sign delly and others to minimum to finish roster. Plus have mle on Turner.
Rondo/ delly
Derozan/ hield
James/ Turner
Simmons/ Frye
Whiteside/ noel.

17 Apr 2016 03:11:49
Lebron wants to win now. doesn't want any youth on his team.

30 Mar 2016 15:34:05
Spurs retool offseason

Ginobili retire
Bonner retire takes a team office role

Spurs - Boston

Spurs get Boston to draft caris levert @ 22pick and Celtics 35pick
Boston gets Danby green and 29pick

Draft George de Paul @ 35pick
Sign pau gasol 2yrs 23mill
Sign fournier 4yrs 44mill team option 3rd yr
Sign teletovic 3yrs 16 mill team option 3rd yr

Parker, Mills, De Paul
Levert, Fournier, Simmons
Leonard, Anderson
Aldridge, Diaw, Teletovic
Duncan, Gasol, Marjonovic.

30 Mar 2016 18:49:12
I don't really think the Spurs are going to need to retool like this. Plus I don't think that Gasol will sign on to be a back up. He still has a lot left in the tank.

30 Mar 2016 18:50:19
Also if they somehow do get both LeVert and Fournier, Fournier is going to start. They won't be paying him what he wants to be sitting on the bench behind a rookie who hasn't played in a while coming off a few injuries.

28 Mar 2016 13:07:33
KD should stay in west and not sign with Warriors, Spurs and not resign with Thunder.

I was thinking Lakers or Rockets.
Trading 2 1st pick 2016 and 2017 to Thunder for KD then sign Gasol at center, he wants to come back, and change the head coach. Remember they beat the warriors that most elite teams having hard time to beat them.

Rockets, maybe not a good idea of replicating a 2 man show. But who knows what they can do together. Ezeli would be a great center for the Rockets.

28 Mar 2016 13:49:45
Lakers rights to 1st round pick are spoken for at least through 2019, and you can't trade 1st round picks in consecutive years unless you have multiple ones, which the Lakers don't have.

28 Mar 2016 15:07:03
Harden has to commit to becoming a second option to durant and the other players on the team have to know their touches will go down for it to work.

08 Mar 2016 01:34:49
Offseason Predictions (Very Bold) 1 for each team

Hawks: Trade Teague for an SG and Let go of Hereford

Celtics: Sign a top Free Agent (Hassan Whiteside)

Nets: Trade away Lopez, Young for future picks

Hornets: Batum walks away but signs Dwight Howard

Bulls: Trade away Rose for a young PG and DP. (Elfrid Payton)

Cavs: Trade away Love or Irving

Mavs: Signs J. Noah but ultimately loses Parsons

Nuggets: Trade Faried for an SG

Pistons: Find a backup PG through trade and give Andre Max

Pacers: Trade away Hill, DP for Teague

GSW: Don't Do anything at all! (Resign Barnes)

Rockets: Let go of Howard and try to throw money at Batum

Clippers: Trade Griffin for Anthony

Lakers: Sign KD and trade for Cousins

Grizzlies: Resign: Conley and find a young Wing

Heat: Pick Wade over Whiteside

Minnesota: Trade up in draft to 4th to get Jaylen Brown

Bucks: Try a trade for Rubio possibly: Rubio, Bazz for Khris

Pelicans: Draft a center Jakob Poeltl to pair with Brow

Knicks: Trade Melo to Clippers and receive Griffin

Thunder: KD leaves but then sign J. Clarkson

Magic: Throw Max at Derozan and Payton+Pick to get D. Rose

76ers: Trade 1st pick to lakers for Ingram and Randle

Suns: REBUILD. Trade Bledsoe for Picks

Blazers: Sign a big Man. (Joakim Noah)

Kings: Trade DMC to make way for WCS

Spurs: Just do what you do

Raptors: Lose DeRozan bc, won't offer Max, but sign Batum+Ryno

Jazz; Trade for a PG Burks, Burke for Teague

Wizards: Resign: Beal and sign Terrence Jones.

08 Mar 2016 13:45:03
Your 76ers trade is terrible. 1 pick in the draft for the second pick and Randel! Wow. So Sixers get Ingram and another big.

08 Mar 2016 19:42:59
The last thing the Sixers need is an additional PF. If they trade the top pick to the Lakers, somehow Clarkson or Russell has to come to Philly in that transaction. Sixers are desperate for guards.

12 Mar 2016 02:36:00
The Mavs and Blazers both sign Joakim Naoh. huh?

07 Mar 2016 18:39:21
If cavs lose to golden state in finals they should make some changes. there built to beat the spurs and thunder but not golden state.

First they should trade Irving for cp3. That way LBJ can actually play off the ball and be more of a post up scorer where he can't be stopped.
Trade love for milsap. That way cavs match up better with golden state.

They need to resign mozgov

Just have funny feeling that cavs sign dwade and heat keep Whiteside.

Paul/ delly
Wade/ smith/ jefferson
James/ shumpert/ jefferson
Milsap/ Frye
T. t/ mozgov.

08 Mar 2016 12:20:32
First off, they're not built to beat the Spurs.

Second, ATL does not give up Millsap for Love.

Third, I have a feeling that if D-Wade and LBJ are going to play together again, it's not going to be in Cleveland.

08 Mar 2016 13:48:29
Cavs would be idiots to trade Irving for cp3. The Cavs would have no future. Lebron. As good as he is. Is destroying Cleveland. Cleveland lost Wiggins. The future lebron like player. Now you wan them to give up Kyrie. A young pg. Kevin love is over rated but solid but Wiggins was 20 years old and Kyrie 23. That's a nice core. I could make an argument that if lebron just stayed away from Cleveland they would be rebuilding successfully right now.

19 Feb 2016 21:47:08
I like that Mavs not puzzling but keeping the team together.

Mavs need to become a team like in the past. Underdogs fighting the favorits - and defeating them. : ) Mavs need Players that want to be Mavs!

Maybe Mavs can add
and/ or
after a Buyout.

Maybe Mavs can add
in the summer, if he really wants to be a Mavs. Or Noah, Hoford or Whiteside.
Mavs may add
-Ryan Anderson as well.

two or three of them are possible and would move Mavs to a contending team next year.

This year, Mavs will end on spot 4 or 5 and will go to the second round but not more, Spurs and Dubs are to good this Season. Funny would Mavs / LAC in the first round and to see the Mavs win. ;)

26 Feb 2016 19:16:59
We can't beat the clippers without joe johnson lee martin mavs cut evans an McGhee geter done by any means necessary.

07 Mar 2016 04:44:19
We could let Parsons walk for labron an sign kd

Williams barea jr smith
Matthews felton carkson
LeBron Anderson young
Kd Dirk Powell
Horford pachulia Lee

We lose a lot of guys to free agency an trade maybe for the last3 spots
We get nick young jr smith clarkson?
Guys if is a big word but if we had this line up who would be your last 4? is this a championship team?
Dallas mavs for life loses harris mejri mcghee evans. all but LeBron an kd takes pay cut give info about new mavs?

17 Feb 2016 02:43:21
According to reports the Clippers have a deal in place to send Stephenson to the Magic for Frye, however the Clippers are working on a mega deal that would including Stephenson first. I have no idea if this is it but it would make sense.

Clippers trade Griffin, Stephenson
Clippers get Millsap, Ariza, Mack

Rockets trade Ariza, Lawson, Dekker, 2018 first round pick, 2020 first round pick (lottery protected till 2022 then becomes 2022 second round pick)
Rockets get Griffin, Teague

Hawks trade Millsap, Teague, Mack
Hawks get Lawson, Stephenson, Dekker, Rockets 2018 and 2020 first round picks

Clippers swap out Griffin for two players who better fit with the team and the mode they are in. Ariza provides the 3-D player they need and Millsap upgrades their defense and provides better floor spacing for CP3-DJ pick and rolls.

Rockets add their third star player to go with Harden and Howard. Brewer replaces Ariza at the starting SF spot. Teague upgrades the PG spot and can play off the ball with Harden. Plus if the Rockets can court KD this offseason he will be playing with a great line up of Teague/ Harden/ Durant/ Griffin/ Capela. That line up would be unstoppable.

Hawks move out two former all stars and get back over $19M in expiring contracts to use in cap space this summer to chase free agents (maybe hometown Dwight Howard? ) . And if they choice to go the rebuild process they add two future first round picks and Dekker who was a middle of a first round pick in last years draft who had upside as a 3-D player.

This trade pushes the Clippers into the same class as the Thunder, Spurs, Warriors as championship contenders. With the Rockets adding Griffin and Teague pushes them into the fifth seed in the west.

Again this trade isn't likely to happen but if the Clippers want to make a big move this makes sense.
