This is just a hypothetical one I've been thinking about a lot lately. Especially now that Beal has committed to Washington and probably wants them to be competitive.

Phoenix gets Wall, Wagner, Schofield, conditional first(s)
***Wall needs a change (as does Washington). I'm a big believer that Phoenix has more than a knack for revitalizing career derailed by injury. For a team that have been desperate for a high level pg and no ability to compete for the next couple years, I'd love to see Wall come back strong for the Suns in sayyyy 2021.

Washington gets Johnson, Rubio, Baynes
***This allows Beal to have a competitive team in the East. They lose a pick or two, but they can be a team with direction and purpose moving forward while moving an albatross contract.



1.) 17 Oct 2019 16:08:49
Horrible. Washington needs its future firsts to add talent to become competitive in the near future since they will have no cap space in the future.

Bryant, Hachimura, 2020 first, Beal, Wall may be a very intetesting team in the near future.



16 Oct 2019 17:40:48
Celtics get Adams, Gallinari, Burton
***Solve the 5 quandary, move a huge contract, open up cap space for Brown next summer.

Kemba - Brown - Tatum - Gallinari - Adams

Grizz get Smart, Roberson, Nader
***Grit and Grind type guys who fit the mold of what they've been doing well. They also free up room on the wing for Clarke who looks like a steal as a rookie.

Morant - Smart - Clarke - JJJ - Valanciunas

Thunder get Hayward, Anderson, Crowder, Jackson, Poirier
***Adams and Gallo are gone, but this is a move to give Paul the sense they are giving things a fair shot. They go from weak to strong on the wings.

Paul - SGA - Crowder - Hayward - Noel


1.) 17 Oct 2019 03:17:51
So Thunder give up Adams and Gallinari who have value and get back a player in Anderson who's always injured and Jackson, Crowder and Poirier with almost no value. That's an easy no for the Thunder as Adams and Gallinari habe more value! No way they take Haywards 67 million on top without at least 2 first rounders.

2.) 17 Oct 2019 12:23:10
Churchpugh, what kind okc fan are u, that is horrible trade for them.

3.) 17 Oct 2019 19:50:34
Yea his is a definite no for me Adams will bring u a young guy plus a pick and Gallinari easily gets u another first round pick if they wait until trade deadline I see them getting a first and maybe 1second



15 Oct 2019 23:29:01
Hornets get Schroeder, Nader, Burton
***A backup for Rozier that could also provide a spark. I think Schroeder could also use a change of scenery with so many ball handlers in okc.

Grizz get MKG, Monk, 2020 Denver 1st
***They get another pick and a young asset. If MKG can play, great. If he stinks, cool. $13M expiring.

Thunder get Anderson, Crowder
***I'd like to see OKC see how far they could go in the West. Most of the top teams have reason to underachieve (ex Warriors have Klay hurt, KD gone, Russel to incorporate AND Rockets have to figure out how feed both Harden and Russ and no picks to trade to fill out the bench).

CP3, Graham, FA (Felton?)
SGA, Ferguson, Diallo
Crowder, Anderson, Roberson
Gallo, Bazley, Muscala
Adams, Noel, Patton

(Realistically the backup pg is SGA and graham the third)




15 Oct 2019 12:49:55
Pacers get Gallinari, Nader, Burton, Denver 2020 first
***Sabonis and Gallo could be a really nice tandem down low. Additionally, Gallo provides spacing needed for Oladipo as he comes back from injury. Playoff Push will be real as I see the Pacers as a team that could go deep in the East.

Thunder get Warren, McDermott, Sabonis
***Bring Sabonis back! He fits the timeline and team needs. Also, they get much needed wing help. And they don't really need the Denver pick.


1.) 15 Oct 2019 13:11:46
Bring Oladipo back too, stop living in the past. Move on.

2.) 15 Oct 2019 13:17:07
Why would it matter if sabonis and gallo would work?

3.) 15 Oct 2019 15:50:28
"Sabonis and Gallo would work great together! " as you trade one for the other.

4.) 15 Oct 2019 16:31:58
I meant turner and Gallo. Jeez.



13 Oct 2019 12:01:35
Huge trades don't normally go down, but I wanted to see how this one would play out. Don't hate it for any of the teams.

Boston gets Knight, Nance, Sexton
***Knight is a gamble, but he's a big expiring deal. Opens things up to keep Brown next summer, or it allows Celtics to be a possible player in FA. Nance can fill the void they seem to be chasing at the 5. Sexton has potential and can be a great backup point.

Thunder get Thompson, Clarkson, Henson, Dellavadova
***All expiring players without giving up a pick to dump Paul. But I also like the fit at each position. Let's them chase a guy like Brown this summer or flip these at the deadline for a couple more assets.

Cavs get Paul, Hayward, Roberson, Williams, Ojeleye, Nader, Burton
***Love, Hayward, Paul all seemed to be labeled as available but almost untradeable. Why not put on one squad in the East? And honestly, they could be decent fits together. If health holds up, itd be interesting to see how they gel.

Paul, Garland, Burton
Roberson, Windler, Porter
Hayward, Osman, Nader
Love, Ojeleye
Zizic, Williams

Can fill out front court with vet minimums.


1.) 13 Oct 2019 13:44:27
Ur not getting out of cp3 contract that easily.

2.) 13 Oct 2019 14:29:24
Zizic is bad. No way can he start. Also, the Cavs giving up expirings and positive assets to get back two bad contracts without any compensation for them, probably isn’t the way that they should go.

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

At this point unless we can do like Paul for Wall and multiple firsts, I’d rather at a spat and see what we can find closer to December or the deadline.

I’m a thunder fan. Don’t think they’ll get that, and I honestly don’t want to see him go. But what would get it done, and what team would pull the trigger on Adams?
