    Every year a couple jabronis on here act like they have sources and every year none of what they say/suggest ends up happening. No offense but it’s funny.

    I was thinking more of Orlando getting rid of Harris & Ross for another tradable asset with other trades to follow. Prob right about Franz.

    Harris is washed. Ross is a much, much worse version of CJ.

    Philly is loaded with guards as well which could sour them on CJ?

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Whenever you cook up a 4 team trade where 20 players move around, remember that that's just for the fun of playing around with a trade simulator and that such things virtually never happen in real life.

    I think the ancient Patrick Ewing was involved in a four-team trade once.

    If we’re talking about Orlando I would be targeting Isaac. Wonder if Wagner’s emergence could make him more available.

    The Hawks don't need a Monta Ellis next to Trae Young.

    How largest trade in NBA history helped Heat win first championship

    On Aug. 2, 2005, five teams executed the largest trade in NBA history, changing the course of the league forever... OK, maybe it wasn't quite that impactful. But hey, it was a big deal for one franchise!

    Ahead of the 2005-06 season, the Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, New Orleans Hornets and Utah Jazz swapped 13 players, topping a 12-player trade completed on Sept. 20, 2000. (That deal sent an aging Patrick Ewing to the Seattle Supersonics. Yes, that actually happened.)


    Here's what each team acquired once the trade was finalized. Take a deep breath...

    Celtics: Albert Miralles, Qyntel Woods, Curtis Borchardt, two second-round picks

    Grizzlies: Eddie Jones, Raul Lopez

    Heat: Antoine Walker, Jason Williams, James Posey, Andre Emmett, Roberto Duenas

    Hornets: Rasual Butler, Kirk Snyder

    Jazz: Greg Ostertag

    Miami easily came out the biggest winner from the trade. Williams (12.3 points per game) and Walker (12.2) finished as the third- and fourth-leading scorers behind All-Stars Dwyane Wade (27.2) and Shaquille O'Neal (20.0). Posey started in 63 games and shot 40.3 percent from 3-point range, adequately filling the 3-and-D role.

    Wade was obviously the driving force, but those offseason additions helped the Heat capture the franchise's first NBA championship with a 4-2 Finals series win over Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks. Miami went on to win back-to-back rings in 2012 and 2013 after getting some guys named LeBron James and Chris Bosh. (Decent players, but they can't compare to the dynamic duo of Williams and Walker!)

    Miralles, Woods and Bordchardt never became Celtics legends like we all expected. Jones was on the back end of his career, and the Grizzlies waived Lopez before the season started. Butler lasted a few years with the Hornets, but Snyder was traded the next summer. Ostertag played one more season in Utah before hanging up his jersey.

    What did all of this movement mean in the grand scheme of things? Well, the Heat players got rings, but not much for everyone else involved. It's possible multiple general managers will design a wild 14-player trade in the future, but sometimes it's about quality over quantity.

    That seems like way to much to give up for CJ. Id trade him for Reddish straight across, if they could make salaries work.

    your assessment of value is off. Reddish isn’t anywhere near the player CJ is. Bogdan is closer but still not on that level.

    Brogdon is better than CJ. Would fit better with Dame as well

    Blazers don't need Monta Ellis next to Dame either.

    I just remembered the Hawks have Lou Williams too. More reason for them not to trade for CJ. Makes no sense. Even if Lou Will is a 12 mpg guy now.

    Bottom ten teams in 3PT % that aren’t tanking/full rebuild

    Raptors
    Celtics
    Mavs
    Pacers
    Wizards

    I’m looking at these teams for CJ/Powell. Add the Clippers and 76ers as well as they’re bottom ten in scoring.
