In this thread, post trade ideas from other teams forums that involve us. Its interesting to come across trade ideas from other forums, and see what they have in mind for us. I'll find a few in the next couple days. I'll be posting trades below with my grade and breakdown of them as well as a quote from said forum: _________________________ FORUM 1 - Wizards Forum: POR Gets: Marcin Gortat, Jason Smith WAS Gets: Maurice Harkless, Meyers Leonard, 24th Pick My Grade: D- My Take: It saves us about $2M this year... So that's not big savings.. Saves us apx. $6M next year, but we could easily dump Harkless without taking anything back, which would save us $10M this year and next year. Gortat as a stopgap? If anything, if we let Nurkic go, we could find cheaper options for our MLE that are just as good, and we wouldn't have to give up the 24th pick or our starting SF going into next year. _________________________ FORUM 2 - Knicks forum: Trade Idea One: POR Gets: Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr., 9th Pick NYK Gets: C.J. McCollum My Grade: B My Take: I disagree with the Knicks fan, I think it'd be a decent trade. McCollum for 9 has been tossed around. Courtney Lee gives us a 3-and-D wing, and Tim Hardaway could do a decent job replacing the scoring. Getting both those guys and a top 10 pick for McCollum is pretty good value. Trade Idea Two (Submitted April 2nd) POR Gets: NYK 1st (#9), Joakim Noah NYK Gets: POR 1st (#24), Maurice Harkless *(We would have to add a little bit of salary) Knicks fans weren't to high on this idea. My Grade: A My Take: Doesn't make sense for the Knicks, they should hang onto their picks and let Noah expire (most of their fans agree with that) but it makes a ton of sense for us. Noah expires at the same time Turner & Leonard do. We could potentially move to the top 5 my packaging CJ and #10, or could offer that to San Antonio for Kawhi, or we could draft someone like Bridges. Lots of options. Trade Idea Three (Submitted April 6th) POR Gets: Tim Hardaway Jr, Emmanuel Mudiay, CHI 2nd (#38) NYK Gets: Maurice Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, POR 1st (#24) My Grade: C- My Take: We get a much needed bench scorer, I don't like Hardaway starting at SF, he can't defend. Mudiay is pretty bad and he's lost on me. Not interested in him. We lose both of our starting forwards though, and give up a 1st to do so. Just doesn't appeal to me.
