Getting so much Myles Turner noise from all over. We must have another deal lined up for Nurk
Jan 15th — the day Powell can be dealt
Bridges is supposed to be the hottest RFA to hit the market this summer. He's cooled down considerably since his hot start. Prolly need more than Nurk to get him though.
I wouldn't mind re-routing Turner to Detroit and ending up with Jerami Grant, but I have no clue what Indiana would be interested in from us (for Myles Turner or otherwise). I have to think it's a three-way if we're going after Turner.
Not sure if Dallas would buy into this but seems like there are a lot of things that work in this trade.
Dallas gets more balance and a move on from KP who has had issues with the way he is used.
Philly gets 2 borderline All-Stars that will help tremendously with scoring and creating offense.
Portland gets Simmons and can let him take his time coming back.
NO way sending Little to Mavs in that deal, Roco yes but Little NO
Ok that's enough trade proposals for me today
Fischer said we can expect a return for Roco similar to what ATL got for Cam
that’s surprising for a role player with no upside like reddish and on an expiring contract
RoCo for Bamba
he’s also better than reddish and has bird rights. And since he only fits playoff type teams, most of whom are in the tax, that’s super valuable.
because the market of teams for roco is different from those that want Reddish. In the past few weeks, he has mentioned Utah/Chicago/GS/MEM as teams that would be interested. I kept thinking NY was also on the list considering the Thibs connection, but guess not.
Contending teams with picks to throw around would all be interested in him. in theory. Let's see how it manifests in real life.
If NOP was a destination that Powell was already interested in last summer, I like this trade for us:
NOP gets: Powell
POR gets: Murphy III + 1st + trade exception
Murphy was just the 17th pick last summer with 3 years left. While he hasn’t shown it thus far, he is already a good 3 point shooter. He’s basically a big guard, 6’8.5 and has the length and enough athleticism to be a good defender.
If I’ve seen one thing that I’ve liked so far from Chauncey, it’s his ability to seemingly inspire the young guys. Let’s see what he can do with a guy who seemingly has all the tools to be a top 3-D wing. I think a 1st + the trade exception is enough compensation if you get Murphy (who you hope can become Covington++ one day anyway) that it offsets Covington deal picks. Covington gets another pick back at least.
Trent for Murphy, a trade exception, and another 1st certainly isn’t a bad haul for a 2nd rounder lol.
The only player I’m interested in on the Pelicans roster is Brandon Ingram.
I'd be interested in Alexander-Walker and Hayes. That being said I don't know why fanspo is allowing unbalanced trades to the Pelicans. They don't have cap room and if they include a player then they can't use their huge exception.
New orleans cant absorb that much salary. You need fillers like Satoransky
fanspo seems like it's just allowing player contracts to be combined with TPEs. The Pelicans could definitely trade us just draft considerations for Norm but I would want the Lakers pick this year and future considerations.
Herb Jones ought to be the target.
Great find, had never heard of this guy until now. Great D! 6'8" OMFG YES PLEASE!
