And if cousins walks?
Him and Dame will become BFF's and retire here!
NYK Gets: Deandre Jordan, Maurice Harkless
LAC Gets: Evan Turner, Meyers Leonard, Enes Kanter, Lance Thomas, 2018 NYK 1st, 2018 BOS 1st, 2018, 2020, (maybe 2022?) POR Lotto Protected 1sts
BOS Gets: Ed Davis
POR Gets: Blake Griffin, Danillo Gallinari, Kyle O'Quinn (TPE)
Lillard (36) / Napier (12) / Baldwin
McCollum (36) / Connaughton (12) / Wilcox
Aminu (16) / Gallinari (32) / Layman
Griffin (34) / Aminu (14) / Collins / Swanigan
Nurkic (30) / Vonleh (18) / O'Quinn
Isn't Griffin out with another injury? Otherwise I think he would work here. Just can't stand the injuries from a guy who depends on his athleticism so much.
Obviously it would be dumb to trade him now.
He's turning into an asset. The biggest takeaway from his acquisition so far is that he's progressed in his development and looks to be like he can be a Patty Mills type of backup guard. He was floundering in Orlando.
The same thing that is happening with Okafor and Hezonja.
I get the logic, and if we needed bench players and had the right combination of top level talent I'd be all for it. I just want someone else on Dames and CJs level. If it's Blake Griffin then so be it.
Very involved trade. Crazy is a good word. Why would the Clippers take Meyers? You think Boston would give up a 1st rounder for Davis? I would do it if I were portland, but man a lot has to fall into place.
Yes, Boston has 5 first round picks over the next two years, their pick should be 28-30, they have a need for another big man and injured player exception which they can use to trade for up to $8M in expiring contracts only. Sounds like a perfect fit.
If LAC trades BG and DJ, they'll be rebuilding. Therefore, it won't matter what they get back.
Crazy = 4 team trades
Yes. If that makes it easier to get him then do it. We need that 3rd star, and he'd be it.
Bradley Beal and Marcus Morris for C.J and Vonleh.
Both morris' suck.
If we're trading Vonleh, do it for someone that is actually good.
I'd go to Memphis and offer Turner, Meyers, and a 1st for Parsons. (See if we could pry away Tyreke Evans as well)
Parsons is averaging 15 Points Per 36 and shooting 52% from the field and 48% from 3pt.
He'd fit much better than Turner. This trade would also save us apx. $4M, which would take us under the luxery tax.
I would trade CJ for Robert Covington and some combination of
Fultz, Saric, Korkmaz and Luwawu-Cabarrot (Philly gets to choose)
I bet Philly would value Covington more than CJ, though, if only because Covington fits with them so well and is a very good defender.
You're acting like getting rid of Davis is a good thing. I'm penciling him in as our 4th best player right now.
Anthony Davis is injured as we speak and hasn't had an injury free season ever:
To Portland: Andre Drummond
To Detroit: Jusef Nurkic | +?
They might've gone for it... last season.
That's the only reason they'd consider trading him.
More crazy trades that nobody thinks are possible:
My role player pipedream:
Trade 1: Evan Turner, Noah Vonleh, 2020 1st for Evans and Parsons
BOS Gets: Ed Davis
POR Gets: 2018 BOS 1st
NYK Gets: Maurice Harkless, Shabazz Napier, Jake Layman 2019 MIN/LAL 2nd, 2021 POR 2nd
MIA Gets: 2018 POR 1st, 2018 BOS 1st
POR Gets: Courtney Lee (TPE), James Johnson, Kyle O'Quinn
Lillard (35) / McCollum (13)
McCollum (21) / Lee (22) / Evans (5)
Evans (22) / Parsons (21) / Aminu (5)
Aminu (21) / Johnson (27)
Nurkic (30) / O'Quinn (15) / Johnson (3)
That team would be so good. Best bench in the league. If we could only improve our role players.
