Kings/ Wizards

Kings get:Bradley Beal, Marcin Gortat, Kelly Oubre, and Wizards 1st round pick

Wizards get: Demarcus Cousins, Ben Maclemore.

24 Aug 2016 07:12:06
Wizards-Kings-Celtics

Wizards get Marcus Smart, Amir Johnson, Ben McLemore, Brooklyn 1st 2017, Boston 2018 1st, and draft rights to Ante Zizic

Kings get John Wall

Celtics get DeMarcus Cousins.

24 Aug 2016 08:03:05
Not bad. I would think about it.

24 Aug 2016 08:25:48
i don't think Wall would like to go to Sacramento if D Cousins leave

I do like the trade for Washingot, they should rebuilt.

24 Aug 2016 09:02:19
Not bad wall would take sac town a lot further then cousins can with this roster.

24 Aug 2016 13:01:40
The Wizards aren't getting enough, and it's not close.

No starters and 2 firsts (one most likely being late in, the first round) doesn't get Washington to trade Wall.

24 Aug 2016 06:43:53
NY/ WSH

NY get Wall and Morris

WSH get Porzingis and Rose.

24 Aug 2016 08:04:10
Nope. Knicks are too high on Porzingis to trade him.

24 Aug 2016 08:26:34
I really like Porzingis, but i do like this trade.

24 Aug 2016 13:04:04
Rose doesn't add value to the trade. Porzingis doesn't get wall straight up.

24 Aug 2016 13:56:04
Mmmhmn. Knicks aren't trading porzingis. Not unless they are given significantly more value. Not relatively comparable.

24 Aug 2016 15:47:30
I realize porzingis was impressive in his rookie year, but you guys really wouldn't trade him for a 25 year old PG that averaged 20/ 10/ 5 last year? Morris and rose probably cancel each other out (realistically Morris probably has more value) .

24 Aug 2016 16:34:24
Honestly. don't think so.

Wall is a top level pg, no doubt about that. But he's 5-7. All knicks fans know that porzingis isn't better than wall yet. The problem is, with wall, you know what you get. A stat stuffing pg, who is very very good, but not elite. With porzingis, we know we have a very good big man. The potential for him to be a possible top 10 player in the league (no matter how likely) is just too much to trade. The knicks fanbase is fully behind Porzingis, and would need to at least see another year or two to determine if his actual abilities reach any bit of his potential. Its just too soon to trade him.

24 Aug 2016 17:14:47
Wall is not a stat stuffer.

24 Aug 2016 17:42:23
Wall is an impressive player. puts up a lot of great numbers but his teams haven't exactly been amazing.

I think this would be the knick buying low on wall. Selling on prozingus at a higher value then last year. They don't have to include rose. Not sure he has an real value at this time.

In the end both teams say no. Knicks think prozingus is dirk Ina 7 foot 3 body. Any team that see that value in their young big is not trading him.

25 Aug 2016 00:55:05
Thunderfan. really don't take what you say seriously. But when you put up juicy numbers but your team never advances in the playoffs. and you put up your best numbers and your team fails to even make the playoffs. That equates to a staff stuffer. Thus far, he is not a franchise changer. Very good pg. Not elite.

Porzingis is an unknown and the potential is elite. Again, if he gets there or not, who knows, but he has the potential. But, the Dirk comparison is relatively decent. Shot numbers are similar to start the career. Now just imagine if you put in potentially elite defense.

Thus. knicks have porzingis as untradeable.

25 Aug 2016 05:24:02
If you call wall a stat stuffer and fails to make the playoffs, what does that make Melo? The dirk comparisons are absurd. Just because he's a big not from America, doesn't mean you compare to the greatest euro big of all time and a top 7 PF all time. Porzingas will never be near top ten status as all time PF or top ten out of all players in the NBA. Top 30? Maybe. He odes to have that shooting stroke, footwork, and the phenomenal post game that dirk has and has had consistently for 15+ years. What I'm going to say next is true even though you'll never admit it, If porzingas was on any other team than the Knicks, you would try to rip apart anyone who said porzingas had the potential to be a top ten player in NBA at least once in his career. So you wouldn't trade him for curry or lebron?

25 Aug 2016 05:25:12
I see nothing from Porzingis that says top 10 player potential. Understand the Knicks wanting to see it play out, but he's been completely overhyped in that market.

I, like the Knicks fans need to see more.

24 Aug 2016 06:39:32
To Wizards fans, I apologize for Wall rumors i read some and i'm going to post some.

DET/ WSH

DET get John Wall and Markieff Morris
Wall-Drummond combo would be awesome i think and reunion of Morris twins

Pg Wall/ Smith/ Blake
Sg KCP/ Bullock/ Hilliard
Sf Marcus/ Johnson
Pf Markieff/ Leuer
Ce Drummond/ Baynes/ Boban

WSH get Reggie Jackson, Tobias Harris and Henry Ellenson + 1st rd pick and 2nd rd pick
young players to go with Beal

Pg Jackson/ Burke
Sg Beal/ Thornton
Sf Porter/ Oubre
Pf Harris/ Ellenson/ Hickson
Ce Gortat/ Mahinmi/ Smith.

24 Aug 2016 08:11:38
Jackson is a good pg not that much worse than Wall. Harris is way better tham Morris and giving away a young good pf and 1rd pick is just too much. Det pass.

24 Aug 2016 08:21:51
The thing about this trade is that Reggie Jackson is another hot head alpha type player. Beal and Wall don't match the same reason Rose and Butler didn't match. Washington would be losing in the long run as soon as Jackson or Beal asks for a trade.

24 Aug 2016 13:06:31
Detroit would do this in a heartbeat. Reggie Jackson stinks. He's nowhere near Wall.

24 Aug 2016 15:50:51
Wow, two extreme opinions. Jackson clearly doesn't stink, he averaged 14/ 9 last year. He's a top 20, but not top 10 PG. saying that, wall averaged 20/ 10/ 5. He's a top 7 PG, he's a borderline all NBA guy. He certainly has more value and is better than Jackson.

24 Aug 2016 16:52:23
I probably went too far saying he stinks. It was more of a reaction in him being compared to wall.

He actually averaged more points (18) and less assist (6) last year. I just see him as a high volume shooter, who doesn't shoot good enough farther away from the basket to warrant the amount of shots he takes. He gets a decent amount of his points from the foul line.

24 Aug 2016 18:56:10
Not sure where I saw the stats that I did, but they were clearly wrong.

I agree though Simmonsorbust. He's an above average PG that is very inefficient. Not close to the player wall is.

24 Aug 2016 04:29:34
Jazz/ Wizards/ Celtics

To UTA - J Wall, A Bradley, J Jerebko
* get a star point and seriously challenge Western teams

Wall-Hill-Neto
Bradley-Burks
Hood-Johnson
Lyles-Jerebko-Diaw
Gobert-Diaw-Whitey

To WAS - D Exum, M Smart, D Favors, 1st from BOS (own) and 1st from UTA 2017
* this is a very good return for Wall if they decide to rebuild

Exum-Smart-Burke
Beal-Thornton-Smart
Porter-Oubre-Eddie
Markieff-Hickson
Favors-Mahinmi-Smith

To BOS - G Hayward, M Gortat
* get Steven's player in Hayward and a center to start alongside Horford

Thomas-Rozier
Hayward-Hunter
Crowder-Brown-Young
Horford-Johnson
Gortat-Olynyk-Zeller.

24 Aug 2016 05:25:09
Celtics need to give more towards Utah.

24 Aug 2016 05:31:49
I like the general premise but I think Boston is getting a bit too much (Hayward is one of most underrated players in the league) and needs to throw Utah and maybe Washington a little more. Also, I think maybe swap Crowder for Bradley so Hayward can play sf which I think suits him better and Crowder gives the Jazz more flexibility as he can play 2-4.

Also, to complete the story and cause Utah has a rubbish ton of pgs send Mack (another ex Butler player under Stevens) to Boston with a 2nd rounder or something small coming back.

24 Aug 2016 06:51:46
This could work either

BOS get Hayward, Gortat, WAS 1st top 12 protected

WAS get Favors, BKN 1st 2017, Exum, UTA 1st 2017

UTA get Wall, Amir Johnson and Bradley.

24 Aug 2016 13:17:13
I like the second trade option on this thread. Only potential change is not having Utah's first going to washington. They are already giving up exum favors and hayward.

24 Aug 2016 03:20:49
Wizards/ Suns/ Sixers blockbuster deal

To WAS - B Knight, 2017 Sixers 1st, Lakers 1st and Suns 1st 2017
* Wiz do this if they are looking so bad this season get 3 possible lottery picks + their own and still get a replacement PG

To PHX - J Okafor, R Covington, 2nd Sixers
* get a nice young center who can probably work well with either Bender or Chriss as their future front court

To PHI - J Wall, T Chandler
* get a superstar PG losing picks and young center but so worth it and the package include a vet center to help them out.

24 Aug 2016 04:43:03
No way suns do this.

24 Aug 2016 04:49:58
For Washington I think that is a great deal if they do indeed want to move on from Wall. For Phoenix I don't love it but it isn't a bad deal. For 76ers I think its a little too desperate of a move. Giving up Lakers pick and their own pick in addition to Okafor for Wall is a steep price to pay especially when gaining Wall I don't think even makes them a playoff team. I think they'd be much better off being patient keeping their picks and drafting one of the many pgs in the upcoming draft class who can grow with the young 76ers nucleus. Trading for any superstar at this point I think would be a hasty move for the 76ers and they should let "the process" play out and just resolve their big man situation by dealing Noel or Okafor.

24 Aug 2016 04:52:28
Wall doesn't fit great with philly though.

24 Aug 2016 13:26:16
Wall would fit fine in Philly. He's a top 20 player atleast.

I'm not sure why this wouldn't work for the suns value wise. Both guys could be potential starters for them and it would make Bledsoe and Booker thier definitive 1 and 2 guards going forward.

It seems like a huge price to pay for just Wall, and I'd prolly try to get them to let it be the Sixers 2018 instead of 2017 1st.

24 Aug 2016 15:02:46
Knight and a likely top 10 pick is too much for Okafor. Covington and that second are near worthless. Suns already have enough bigs. They need a true starting SF.

24 Aug 2016 17:03:22
I understand the concept that Okafor may not fit with all the bigs they already have. That's why I said value wise, but I think your atleast somewhat overvaluing knight who would be going to his 4th team in 5 or 6 seasons. That doesn't happen by accident.

24 Aug 2016 17:44:03
I think Sixers are giving too much. The Sixers first has to be 2018 as we have a swap with the Kings in 2017. Sixers aren't going to mess with that.

24 Aug 2016 01:53:33
SAC/ BOS/ WSH

SAC get John Wall

BOS get Demarcus Cousins and WSH 2nd rd pick

WSH get BKN 1st 2017, SAC 1st, Marcus Smart, Rudy Gay and Ben McLemore.

24 Aug 2016 04:56:55
That is a steal for Boston. Smart and BKN for Cousins and for some reason they are getting a 2nd (which they certainly don't need) . Not sure why Kings are giving up so much as value wise I think Wall is fairly close to Cousins. That is a decent return for Wall.

24 Aug 2016 13:36:49
Kings getting robbed as usual.

Boston making out like bandits as usual.

22 Aug 2016 17:59:09
Sac- Bost-Was- philly

Was:
receive: Smart+ 1rnd pick Bost 17 ( Nets swap)
trade: J Wall

Sac:
receive: 1rnd pick LA+ Nets pick 18+ J Brown
trade: D Cousins

Bos:
receive: Cousins+ J Wall
trade: Smart+ I Thomas+ J Brown+ 1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick Nets 18

Philly
receive: I Thomas
trade: LA pick

Washington is going for the eight spot, so they could go in rebuilt mode.

Sac receive a talented young player and two potential good draft picks. (They propably suck, next year so they can keep their own pick too)

Philly rereive a leader for all those young talents.

Boston receive two young all stars with great contracts.

C: Cousins
PF: Horford
SF: Crowder
PG: Bradley
PG: J Wall.

22 Aug 2016 18:41:59
No from Washingto

Yes from the other three are possible depending on timing.

23 Aug 2016 02:46:13
Philly would love this trade

SAC not so much but they do get "OK" value for D. Cousins

Washington will want more. (at least two picks for J. Walls)

but the concept of this trade is in the right direction. you have major pieces going to each team involved and major needs being met.! NICE WORK.

23 Aug 2016 14:49:32
Philly would not be included in this trade. It is insane that they get an all star pg, signed to an INCREDIBLE contract, for a pick that is top-3 protected. Just nuts.

20 Aug 2016 02:33:07
Deal if Wizards are struggling and John Wall wants out:
Wizards-Nuggets

Wizards get Mudiay, Nurkic, Chandler, and Grizzlies 2017 1st rd pick

Nuggets get Wall and Gortat.

20 Aug 2016 04:46:58
nuggets have no need for gortat plus I think that mudiay can't get Washington to ok that deal, mudiay hasn't shown the league that I can play in this league he's still learning.

20 Aug 2016 04:58:18
I agree Nuggets have ton of assets if I'm Wizards I want more than that especially since Mudiay looked real raw this past season.

20 Aug 2016 05:02:59
Nuggets:
Wall/ Murray/ Nelson
Harris/ Beasley/ Toupane
Gallinari/ Barton/ Miller
Faried/ Arthur/ Hernangomez
Jokic/ Gortat/ Lauvergne

Wizards:
Mudiay/ Burke
Beal/ Satoransky/ Thornton
Porter/ Chandler/ Oubre
Morris/ Nicholson/ Smith
Mahinmi/ Nurkic.

20 Aug 2016 05:32:56
Okay maybe nuggets can also add Hernangomez or Lauvergne or some more picks?

09 Aug 2016 15:00:33
Wizards - Hawks
(If Hawks admit to not being a championship caliber team)

Wizards send: Morris, Otto Porter/ Oubre Jr, 1st Round Pick
Hawks send: Paul Milsap.

09 Aug 2016 17:52:04
That's a little bit overpay for an expiring contract. Maybe Morris and Porter?

09 Aug 2016 10:40:57
BOS / WSH

Amir J. for. M. Gortat.

09 Aug 2016 12:54:55
Why would Washington do this?

09 Aug 2016 13:47:13
Cause they paid mahinmi 16m per year and he should play starting center.

09 Aug 2016 14:11:08
That's not a reason to give someone away though in conference. Mahimi isn't better then gortat.

09 Aug 2016 14:38:46
Then wtf was Washington's front offive thinking?

09 Aug 2016 15:13:56
Actually, it's a rather strong reason to get rid of a player. And in conference? You really think the Wizards are going to be dreading the revenge of gortat because he is in the same conference?

Stop throwing cliche terms around. In conference trades are issues for franchise players. Not slightly above average at best centers.

09 Aug 2016 15:26:53
Trading Gortat is a no go. He's better than mahimi. Washington knew Nene was leaving and he's the replacement.

10 Aug 2016 09:39:57
And Nene could play some PF and Mahimi can not. So they will pay two centers around 28 mil per year. Amir can play pf and sometimes C so he would be a nice addition and Gortat can be the starting 5 for Boston and they can use Horford to play 4.

06 Aug 2016 16:52:21
Wizards trade - Beal, Gortat, Porter, 2017 1st, and maybe another future pick
Get - Cousins, Casspi and Vaughn

Kings trade - Cousins and McLemore
Get - Porter, MCW, Beal, Ennis, and 2017 1st (& wizards another 1st if included)

Bucks trade - Vaughn, Ennis, and MCW
Get - Gortat and McLemore

Wall - Burke
Oubre - Vaughn (Kevin Martin)
Casspi - Thornton
Morris - Nicholson
Cousins - Mahinimi

MCW - Collison - Ennis
Beal - Afflalo - Richardson
Porter - Barnes
Gay - Acy
WCS - Koufos

Giannis - Delly
Middleton - Brogdon
Parker - McLemore
Teletovic - Maker - Henson
Gortat - Monroe - Plumlee.

06 Aug 2016 23:10:38
Would like this trade to happen it's good for wiz and bucks but I don't think kings

07 Aug 2016 01:51:08
No way from sacramento.

07 Aug 2016 02:24:59
U can't trade bell he just sign his new contract he's not eligible to be trade until February.

07 Aug 2016 03:32:06
I think the laker fans are jealous we got the next magic in Simmons in philly.

07 Aug 2016 17:48:07
Got it. And the next Olajuwon in embiid. How about you let them play a minute in the league before anointing them a top 20 player in the history of the game.

Seriously ridiculous.

08 Aug 2016 13:07:53
Sam hinkie.
This wasn't even an la or Sixers trade?

08 Aug 2016 13:57:43
Sam Hinkie can say whatever he wants. The man is a genius.

28 Jul 2016 19:37:48
Cavs-Sixers-Wizards

Cavs trade Shumpert, McRae, '17 1st dp (lottery protected
Cavs receive Gortat, Thompson

Cabs resign J. R

Wizards trade Wall, Gortat
Wizards receive Shumpurt, '17 1st dp Cavs, Okafor, '17 1st lakers via Sixers, '18 1st Sixers

Sixers trade Okafor 17 1st lakers and 18 1st
Sixers receive Wall, McRae

Cavs Lineup
Irving/ Mo/ Felder
Smith/ Dunleavy
James/ Jefferson
Love/ Frye
Gortat/ Thompson/ Birdman

Sixers Lineup

Wall/ Bayless/ Rodriguez
Henderson/ Grant/ Stauskas
Simmons/ Covington/ Luwawu
Saric/ Noel/ Holmes
Noel/ Embiid

Wizards Lineup-probably weren't going to win with Wall, this would be a quick rebuild based off of Beal, Okafor, future draft picks
Burke
Beal/ Shumpert
Porter/ Oubre
Morris
Okafor.

28 Jul 2016 20:48:09
That is not a good return for Wall. At best you get a pick outside the top 3 pick, and then either the last or second to last pick in next years draft and then a pick that will either be late lottery or not in lottery at all with that 18 Sixers pick. Then the Laker pick might not even convey this year which pushes it till next season and who knows if the Lakers will sign someone of significance (Westbrook) or trade for someone (Cousins), and that leaves that pick not in the lottery in 18. So you could basically be trading 3 non lottery draft picks plus Okafor for Wall. I don't think that is enough.


Wall is the second best point guard in the Eastern Conference and top 10 in the league. He is worth more than that.

29 Jul 2016 13:45:22
I like the idea of wall in the Sixers. I do have concerns on fit with Simmons though. Simmons is a all handler on offense. Wall needs the ball in his hands to create. Idk if it will work. But i'd take walk.

29 Jul 2016 19:41:58
This is a great return for wall. What are you talking about?

19 Jul 2016 17:34:02
Celtics/ Sixers/ Wizards

Celtics get Noel


Sixers get Wall

Wizards get Bradley, LA17 #1 (1-3) and Phi 18 #1

Celtics get there rim protector.

Sixers get PG of future. No guarantees in 2017 which picks convey.

Wizards . No reason to trade PG for PG, but they do to help get them out of mediocrity.

19 Jul 2016 17:59:46
Tuff call.

19 Jul 2016 18:25:46
not a bad idea, but i think Washington needs more.

Maybe Washington should give this team one more year.
theoretical, this is a good team,

19 Jul 2016 18:42:13
LA 17 Will be around 10 and if Wall is on sixere their pick will be around 10.

19 Jul 2016 19:59:45
Lakers still are young/ not too good past the young guys. I can't see them too much higher then 5 similar to Minnasota this year.

19 Jul 2016 21:21:54
I like wall on the Sixers group. I think they will want Noel lakers pick and sac swap ( so better of Sixers and sac pick next year) .

Wizards reset but have a couple nice pieces moving forward.

Not sure Celtics need to be involved at all.

19 Jul 2016 21:59:17
Included Boston to make it more attractive with a replacement for Wall. Maybe Phoenix would work as well with Bledsoe. OR Portland with CJ McCollum. Wouldn't give Phi17, just Phi18.

20 Jul 2016 00:29:50
If McCullum was available, I'd want him instead of Wall.

20 Jul 2016 14:57:18
You'd want McCollum over wall? Why?

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
summer;

■ 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

GSW★ 2017-2018
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;
FANTASY!

■ 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
in 2017!

16 Jul 2016 01:50:08
76ers / Wizards

sixers get: Oubre, 2018 1-10 protected pick

Wizards get: Noel

Noel, Porter, Beal, and Wall make a nice young nucleus.
Oubre could develop into a nice wing talent. Has a lot of upside.

16 Jul 2016 02:15:27
I forgot about Markief Morris at pf.
Noel, Morris, Porter, Beal, and Wall is a really athletic, young starting 5.

16 Jul 2016 02:15:43
that sounds fair but u would have to remove the protected part to make me say let's make a deal.

16 Jul 2016 02:58:56
They have both gortat and now mahimni on 3 to 4 year contracts of over 10 mil a year, so probably won't trade for another big.

16 Jul 2016 07:08:42
Noel would be perfect fit for Wizards but 76ers will want more than that. Maybe include 3rd team like Hornets so Wiz can send Gortat or Mahinmi to them and more assets to 76ers.

13 Jul 2016 22:36:58
Washington-Charlotte-Sacramento

Washington: d cousins+ Gay+ Lamb
Charotte: M gortat
Sac: Porter+ Beal+ 1rnd pick Was+ 1rnd pick Charlotte (top7 protected)

14 Jul 2016 12:10:12
So Sacramento lose cousins and gay for a Washington pick that will be in the 20s because now Washington have cousins, a protected Charlotte pick and two young players - otto porter isn't even that good.

09 Jul 2016 11:06:44
Wizards/ Kings

Wizards gets: Rudy Gay, Skal Labissiere

Kings get: Otto Porter Jr, JJ Hickson, Marcus Thorton.

09 Jul 2016 12:16:46
Don't know if the kings would want to give up labissiere, but I like gay going to Washington.

06 Jul 2016 17:20:41
Sac- Wizards


Sac: Beal+ Porter+ Beverly+ McDaniels
Wizards: Cousins+ R Gay+ McLemore
Hou: Gortat+ swap option Wizards 2017 and 2018 1rnd pick.

06 Jul 2016 19:19:42
Terrible trade for Sac. Not even close. try again.

Just what if.

Obviously the fallout from the Durant-to-Warriors transaction is huge. As a Thunder fan, I'd love to see this in a dream world.

Pacers, Kings

Pacers get Rudy Gay

Kings get Monta Ellis

***This deal has been rumored recently and could very well happen. Monta feels like a Kings player, and the Pacers seem to be after big athletic guys who play multiple positions.

If the deal happens, could we see Paul George grumble? Having Thad, Gay, and George could cause a bit of a logjam. Pacers were close to the Finals not long ago but have been stuck for a few years now. Maybe he seeks a way out? Thunder have a great trade chip to possibly obtain him: Oladipo. Bring him back to Indiana and be able to lock him up longterm. That should be attractive to the Pacers.

Howard Beck mentioned recently that if Westbrook were to become available via trade that the Wizards could possibly be a good trade partner with Wall on the roster. Wall is a great point man, but I don't see that exactly being equal value despite Westbrook's expiring deal. But maybe a blockbuster three team deal could be worked out?

Pacers get: Oladipo, Ilyasova, Porter Jr. and Wiz pick

Wizards get: Westbrook, Singler

Thunder get: John Wall, Paul George

I know this is far-fetched, but this could be wise for all involved. Pacers bring home Oladipo, swap out Ellis for Gay, add a pick, get a young piece in Porter, and get expiring money. Wizards get Westbrook who is a generational talent at a premier position. Thunder in theory replace Durant and Westbrook with George and Wall.

Thunder retain their depth and have George and Wall locked up for 3 years. They surprise everyone in the playoffs and knock out the record breaking Warriors who struggle with egos and not enough shots to go around come playoff time. Durant opts out and comes back to OKC on his hands and knees begging to be let back on the team he should still be on. He signs for less than the max for 4 years and brings a championship to OKC in 17-18.

Dream world is fun but won't happen.

Oladipo is at best a very very poor mans paul george. so essentially you are getting a MASSIVE upgrade on olidapo. and you are getting a top 5 pg for an expiring?

I know you are dreaming, but this is just crazy. sorry to all thunder fans, going to be a rebuild.

You make a Paces fan cry

Westbrook wouldn't stay in Washington, so they're not trading Wall for a rental.
