    With all the rumors starting to pop off, I figured it's time we have an official 2018 Trade Deadline Thread.

    But by posting in this thread makes your prediction become official. It's kinda like being in school at taking a final.

    Prediction thread. This is for real news. Real tweets that break news, not to be bogged down with random trade ideas and debate about those ideas.

    Brooklyn has some cap space, but there are teams with a lot more.
    Chicago and Dallas are both under the floor while Phoenix and Indiana still have significant cap space available.

    One of my sauces is saying Cleveland is looking to deal Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert, and Cedi Osman to Phoenix for Tyson Chandler and Jared Dudley.
