With Patrick Williams out for the year, Chicago will need an answer at the F spot that can do a lot for little salary. Here's one solution I thought of.

Okc gets Dragic, Simonovic, 2022 unprotected 1st (Raptors)
***Most people who don't watch OKC (as in most people period) will balk at the idea of Kenrich being worth a first. But trust me he is. He's the ultimate glue guy and an incredible locker room guy. Okc also buys out Dragic and eat the cap hit.

Raptors get Coby White
***Raptors get a young former top 10 pick and hope the change of scenery lifts him. He can run the bench unit or play alongside Barnes and FVV. If he works out, awesome. If he doesn't, that's fine too. They trim tons of money this season and get better.

Chicago gets Kenrich Williams, Theo Maledon
***Kenrich can play the Patrick Williams role and Maledon can play the Coby White role. This gives them two guys without breaking the bank. Both under cheap deals for the next couple seasons.

maledon isn't going to help wining but kenrich williams is an under the radar guy who's a great fit for the bulls.

Thunder get Dwight Powell, 2028 Clips unprotected first

Mavs get Luke Kennard, 2022 Clips 2nd

Clips get Isaiah Roby

Thunder add another first that could be very valuable plus a starting 5 which they lack (I don't think Favors lasts much longer on the roster).

Mavs get another shooter to put with Luka which I think is incredibly valuable.

Clips cut crazy money from the tax bill. I don't think Kennard works for them. This is a future move and addition by subtraction. Roby can play some small ball 5 and has some skill.


1.) 23 Sep 2021 15:36:37
Terrible trade for the Clippers. They're in win-now mode.

Ben Simmons + first


Jamaal Murray

Sixers move on from the Simmons drama and get a fit upgrade. Murray is coming off a big injury, but he is a great playmaker. He's one year younger than Simmons. He's a much better fit.

The Nuggets create a jumbo lineup and try and reclaim Simmons. This is a finals move. Simmons can be the answer to guarding Giannis, KD, Butler, Tatum, Middleton, fill in the blank on a big wing. If Simmons meets his ceiling, Nuggets get better. The pick is if he doesn't.






1.) 20 Sep 2021 23:12:02
Looks like the nuggets want to run the offense through Jokic as the main playmaker, IDK how the fit with Simmons would be.

2.) 20 Sep 2021 23:37:53
Nuggets say no they rather have Jamal Murray over Ben Simmons.

3.) 21 Sep 2021 00:26:32
I would give up more than Ben and a first to get murray.

4.) 21 Sep 2021 03:54:57
add Maxey maybe Nuggets will think about it before they say no.

5.) 21 Sep 2021 13:11:25
Is Denver concerned with Gordon and Simmons on the court together? Spacing around Jokic?



15 Aug 2021 12:11:39
With Nets having Griffin coming back and his success at the 5, plus still having Jordan, plus them drafting Sharpe. I think Claxton could be had.

Okc gets Claxton

Nets get Kenrich Williams

Okc gets a young big man. Nets get a cheap hustle/glue guy.


1.) 15 Aug 2021 14:27:48
nahhh. the nets were a much better defensive team with claxton on the court. claxton has lots of potential. deandre jordan doesn’t deserve minutes on an nba court anymore.

2.) 15 Aug 2021 22:58:14
Claxton will also get some good minutes at the 4.



07 Aug 2021 22:48:09
What if the Spurs reach out about a Simmons deal?

Is White, Murray, and a first too much? Not enough?


1.) 07 Aug 2021 23:38:53
For Philly (Morey), not enough. But he is delusional so.

2.) 08 Aug 2021 00:29:32
Spurs don't have any player of interest. I don't know why they have so many sg.

3.) 08 Aug 2021 01:12:30
Not enough according to Philly.

4.) 08 Aug 2021 01:51:31
They really have nothing worth Simmons - maybe if they throw multiple firsts.

Let's Get Crazy.

Thunder get CJ Watson, Tristan Thompson, Cleanthony Early
***Pass first point guard, active young big with potential, prospect on the wing. Balance the roster plus preserve a little cap space in the summer to tinker if need be.

Knicks get Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Solomon Hill
***Two high-level guys who can be something to build on. They don't mesh as well with Lebron as Wade and Bosh did, but they could mesh well together in New York. Love could opt out and leave, but Irving is locked up for years. Plus, they get Hill who could be a productive player.

Pacers get Jason Smith, Jeremy Lamb, Travis Wear, Brandon Haywood, Nick Collison
***This makes them worse in the interim which is fine with George out. This summer, they'll have some cap space with this deal to make some moves and make a run in the East next season. Some of these guys can be waived, but Lamb could be worth holding on to.

Cavs get Carmelo Anthony, Luis Scola, Reggie Jackson
***Melo and Lebron would be crazy. They could play the 3 and 4 as they both have had experience there in the Olympics. They are friends and already have chemistry. They get Scola who does well in the post off the bench, and Reggie Jackson who has the potential to be a high-level starting point in this league. A playoff lineup of Jackson, Shumpert, Lebron, Melo, and Mosgov is potent offensively and defensively.

I may be in the minority, but as an OKC fan, I feel like it's time to explore Reggie Jackson trades. He holds big value now and could fetch a few complimentary peices. Any potential trades worth looking at?


1.) I agree with this

2.) I agree with this as an OKC fan. Also thought we should've traded Jeremy Lamb in the offseason while he still had value. I don't think he has any now



01 Nov 2014 13:07:15
Thunder have yet to let an up and coming player they drafted (right controlled thru restricted free agency) to walk for nothing. Reggie Jackson is looking like James Harden 2.0 in many ways (six man of the year candidate, wants to start, great potential), and it's my opinion after the extension deadline passing that he should meet the same fate.

With Durant and Westbrook out, we can showcase Reggie and explore the trade market. There are several teams that could bite. Any suggestions?


1.) Trade him to the sixers for picks

Pg. Mcw
sg. Jackson
sf. Saric
pf. Noel
c. Embiid

2.) Trade him to the Kings for McLemore and 2015 2nd round pick (which is like a late 1st rounder but at only 500k non guarenteed)

3.) Lol Jbabby do you honestly think Jackson is worth that much?

4.) Jackson is better than McLemore

5.) And he is MUCH BETTER than your boy Shaun Livingston

6.) McLemore has got more potential, and there's no need to bring a warriors player into all of this I never said livingston is better than Jackson, even though I think he is



17 Oct 2014 17:55:08
Thunder can most likely weather the storm while KD recovers. HOWEVER, they have the ammunition and now the reason to pull a deal. They have a couple substantial expiring deals, plenty of young talent, talented players overseas, and picks. The obvious target is a SF, but what if they looked to upgrade C as well? Any options? Opinions?


1.) Make a deal with Denver to get Hickson and either Brewer or Wilson Chandler



20 Aug 2014 02:16:58
As shown when they shipped Harden off to Houston, the Thunder are not afraid to trade big name guys in order to not lose them for nothing AND build towards the future AND seek a deep, balanced, young roster. Does anyone think Durant would leave?

I am a huge Thunder fan and want a Thunder jersey on Durant's back for the duration of his career. However, if he were to leave, I don't want to lose a top 2 player in the league for absolutely nothing. But does any team have the ammunition to go get Durant?

The only trade I could come up with that I might consider is a trade to the Blazers. Durant and Perk for Batum, Aldridge, and 2 or three first round picks. But I don't know if I can see that happening. So can anyone come up with a trade that would make sense for the Thunder if Durant is intent on leaving?


1.) Thunder-Warriors

Thunder get Iggy, Thompson, Bogut
I think this team is much deeper and has all around game

Warriors get Durant, Perkins, Roberson

Okc would do the exact same trade and has 16.

Darry, I would disagree. Have you watched Hill this year? I wouldn't bash you if you hadn't. There's been zero nationally televised Thunder games this year. But Hill has played well.

Fredman, OKC can throw in a guy like Miller to get it closer. The basic framework doesn't change though. Works on the tradenba trade machine.

Shizzee, valid point. Just an idea.
