things are super quiet right now and there aren't any new rumors right now, nothing at all. just the usual josh smith to the nets rumors and the possibility of dejuan blair heading to the blazers or other teams. could this mean that a deal is on the horizon or could it mean that things are too quiet right now because the all star break is coming up?

what do you think? where will josh smith, dejuan blair, marcin gortat, jared dudley, and other players end up being traded to?

A lot of teams keep it quiet and hit deals out of nowhere.you probably won't see anything until a day or two before the deadline and then see a handful of small deals on the day of.

I was hoping to see some big deals this season in order to compensate for the lockout shortened season from last year but I doubt anything big happens this year. this year there are a ton of fake rumors or rumors that dont have any legs at all which sucks.

I think the biggest name to get traded will end up being rudy gay. we wont see anymore trades this week and then next week around tuesday we will see millsap or jefferson getting moved from the jazz and then other trades. Expect one surprise trade to happen that catches us all by surprise, but idk what that will be.

2 years ago it was deron williams, last year it was javalle mcgee for nene, I wonder what this year will be?

interesting note: the knicks are entertaining to the idea of trading iman shumpert for paul millsap.
if iman shumpert can get you a player like millsap, do you do it? here is the rumor:

https://twitter.com/NBARUMORS

the rumor is just a rumor right now but if it were to turn into a bigger deal what do you think of this:

marcus camby
iman shumpert
chris copeland and/or ronnie brewer

for

paul millsap
raja bell or randy foye

I dont mind it. It gets annoying when you have a thread with 8 plus pages, trying to keep track of what has been read and what hasnt. If people are posting in it and it doesnt bother anyone I see no harm in it. Just my thoughts.

IF anyone can get Josh Smith to stop taking ridiculous jumpers is Pop, seems like a good fit, place him at PF and Duncan back to Center

Leonard/J-Smooth/Duncan would be the best defensive front court in the league easily.

that deal is the best the hawks will probably be offered. they are looking for a center and getting splitter is the best they can get. I mean look at the nets offer compared to this. they get an expiring contract in jackson who can still give decent minutes for the hawks for the rest of the season and they get a center that moves horford to the 4. they can also ask for blair in a deal and add someone like korver to make it even for both sides. dont forget the spurs have a lot of prospects overseas that they can offer and they have draft picks so we will see.

i think the spurs can throw danny green into the deal if they can get kyle korver in return, just saying. I think this will be just a rumor but it is interesting because the spurs might have the best offer thus far.

Its the trades we don't hear about tht happen. GM's can be very good at throwing a a rumor out there just to stir things up. They can also be very good holding their hand close to their chest.
I usually don't get worked up about any of the rumors . One . I have no control over what happens . And two . In most cases they don't happen. We either get all worked up about one that does or one that doesn't.
Try the wait and see appproach. Its better for your health.

Seriously seriously doubt that. Just because the Nets deal is worse doesn't mean this is the best out there.

in case you didnt know, all of my threads are real rumors, I just forget to put the sources and links. you can easily google search "josh smith" or "paul millsap" or "nba rumors" in general and you will first see the josh smith to spurs and pauil millsap rumors right away. as fdar as rumors go, most of these won't happen I mean we were given a big throw out out there yesterday with the story about George Karl faking rumors and trades just to stir things up. you're going to ask for the link about Karl well I'm using my phone right now but I'll give the link later when I'm on my computer.

as far as the spurs deal goes, I think it is the best the hawks have been offered. no other team will/can offer a young center like Tiago Splitter. which team that is interested in Smith has a young center to offer? wizards: NO Nets: NO Rockets: NO Bobcats: maybe but is mullens or biyombo intriguing to the hawks? The Spurs offer the young center needed in Splitter. they offer an expiring contract in Jackson. they offer danny green possibly along with dseveral draft picks and rights to players overseas. the only team that might have a better offer is the Suns. they have the best center available in Marcin Gortat and can offer Jared Dudley along with a lottery pick as well. now trhis deal is intriguing however the hawks may want financial flexibility which dudley and gortat's contracts dont give. however if im the hawks I would take the gortat deal and instead of dudley throw in someone like wesley johnson (expiring) and shannon brown(smaller contract). we will see what happens but it will come down to the suns, spurs, or nothing will happen.

as far as the relations between the jazz and hawks GM's with the spurs, these are possibly fake rumors. knowing the spurs, they are one of the very few teams in the NBA that are very hard to hear rumors from, they do everything quietly. the hawks and jazz might make up these rumors by saying the spurs have intriguing deals because the GM's have close relationships just so they can be offered better deals from other teams if you know what I mean.
as far as the jazz, it is a clear view that they are trading either Millsap or Jefferson. that is a sure trade we will see and my bet is that Jefferson will be out, however Millsap is the one being clled about the most because his deal is smaller. teams like the rockets, nets, and even the knicks can afford to trade for Millsap, however Jefferson is a tough one. i like the possibility of the thunder getting will bynum. he is a nice fit and a spark plug for the thunder if they can get him. lets see what happens but I think the pistons are looking more at trying to trade Rodney Stuckey right now

what about the rumors of the nets being interested in paul millsap now? ill show you the link later but the nets apparently are out of the josh smith and ben gordon hunt and are looking at paul millsap now. it seems like they are just trying to find a power forward for the package of khris humphries and marshon brooks. the jazz most likely dont want humphries so a 3rd team would have to be involved however if the nets were to offer 2 draft picks and ttake raja bell along with another bad contract that the jazz dont want, would the jazz pull the trigger? brooks would be a nice upgrade in the backcourt and humphries is a nice rebounder and can be used later in the summer to trade for someone else.
imagine the nets lineup with:

brook lopez
paul millsap
gerald wallace
joe johnson
deron williams
reggie evans
andray blatche
cj watson
keith bogans
raja bell

that is not bad but we will see. can anyone come up with a 3 team trade between the jazz and nets that sends humphries to a third team and gives the jazz what they want? possibly the magic? giving up dequon jones with other pieces like gustavo ayon for humphries? idk come up with something :p

Knicks and wolves talking about a deal but no players have really been named

yeah I heard about that. here is the link: http://www.hoopsrumors.com/2013/02/knicks-wolves-talking-trade.html

I think they might be working out a deal that sends brewer to the wolves for someone like dante cunningham, however cunningham has been playing great so idk what the deal might be. could we possibly seeing a 3 team trade where millsap heads to the knicks while brewer goes to the wolves and shumpert along with players from the wolves head to the jazz like luke ridnour? idk we will see but I like it.

what about a trade like this:

knicks get:
paul millsap
demmare carroll

wolves get:
steve novak
raja bell
ronnie brewer
chris copeland or kurt thomas or rasheed wallace

jazz get:
iman shumpert
luke ridnour
derrick williams

this is not bad for all teams. the jazz get the 2 backcourt players they need, they get a forward as well that can play at the 4 and 3. the wolves get a 3 point shooter in novak they get brewer who they coveted and they get throw ins (expiring contracts). the knicks get a forward that will really help them that can play the 4 and 3 and is an expiring contract that can be used in a sign and trade in the summer or in a playoff push later on in the season. what do you think?
do the knicks give up too much?

I tried this on the trade machine however the link isnt working idk why.

yeah the nets are looking to package khris humphries with marshon brooks and possibly jerry stackhouse and/or tyshawn taylor and draft picks for a power forward. they had their eyes on josh smith and ben gordon but those trades fell apart and now they want paul millsap, we will see what happens, an underrated rumor is ersan ilyasova to the nets, that could happen as well.

so we will see what happens.

Where did you hear/read this at? Every year at the deadline I get obsessed with trade rumors and get hopeful the Pistons will make some moves and they never do. This year, however, I would be shocked if they DIDNT do anything. We have too many decent players with expiring deals and way too much cap space to not make a trade this time... way too many possibilities, I just wonder what teams may be offering.

this is a trade of mine that I did and I saved it and this is the link to it go check it out and tell me what you see... blank right? because there is something wrong with the trade machine right now and idk what it is.

the trade I tried to make up there was:

paul millsap
marvin williams

for

khris humphries
marshon brooks
tyshawn taylor

but it doesnt show up on the trade machine so that is why I had to sit there and describe it to you trade by trade. sorry for the pain but once the trade machine gets working then I will get things done easier.

I always feel the same way except for every team not just the pistons lol. I would love to see the pistons make a move, I thought getting calderon was amazing for them because they move brandon knight to his natural position and balance the team out with a passer who will help drummond and monroe out. I think they are looking at dealing stuckey for someone however idk which teams might want him. I think packaging stuckey with maxiel or bynum or villanuava can get the pistons someone but I am not sure who. they can use an upgrade at the small forward or power forward but we will have to wait and see.

I like the team building around monroe and drummond down low and knight in the back court and then having calderon for now is not bad but he is a nice expiring contract. we will see what happens we have until next week, at least now we can be entertained by the all star weekend!

I expect the bucks to make a trade. most notably trading samuel dalembart. possibly packaging him with ilyasova or ellis for someone. keep on eye on al jefferson. they can package ellis with dalembart for jefferson or possibly send ellis with someone like ilyasova to the kings for tyreke evans, jason thompson and other pieces. getting bigger at the 2 would be nice with evans and jennings in the backcourt. but we will wait and see.

an intriguing possibility earlier in the year was earl clark and pau gasol along with chris duhon for monta ellis, ersan ilyasova and samuel dalembart. but now with gasol hurt a deal is most likely not happening between the bucks and lakers.

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine/?tradeId=bgb92ax

this is a trade of mine that I did and I saved it and this is the link to it go check it out and tell me what you see... blank right? because there is something wrong with the trade machine right now and idk what it is.

the trade I tried to make up there was:

paul millsap
marvin williams

for

khris humphries
marshon brooks
tyshawn taylor

but it doesnt show up on the trade machine so that is why I had to sit there and describe it to you trade by trade. sorry for the pain but once the trade machine gets working then I will get things done easier.

You just don't know how to use it, you save the trade and then it gives you a link and you copy it.

Where did you hear/read this at? Every year at the deadline I get obsessed with trade rumors and get hopeful the Pistons will make some moves and they never do. This year, however, I would be shocked if they DIDNT do anything. We have too many decent players with expiring deals and way too much cap space to not make a trade this time... way too many possibilities, I just wonder what teams may be offering.

by the way here is the link to the rumor of bynum to the thunder:
http://www.sportando.net/eng/usa/nba/50633/thunder-eye-will-bynum.html

bynum would be an acquisition just like fisher was last year, he would be amazing in my opinion. maybe they can grow the trade into an even bigger one and add maxiell to it to add more size down low but i dont think they need that right now, just added depth in the backcourt would be nice.

yeah i think the blockbuster trade that almost went down was the pau gasol trade I mentionted. I am trying to look for the link but it is not online anymore.... it just went away!

but I remember hearing gasol and clark along with a draft pick and other players like duhon to the bucks for ilyasova, ellis, and dalembart. so maybe that is the deal or maybe it was the rudy gay for monta ellis trade but I doubt it was that because the raptors made the trade by the time I heard the rumor.

the nets and bucks could try and get a deal done but only if the nets agree to take on the bad contracts of the bucks like gooden and others like udrih. the bucks did have some interest in humphries in the offseason before they signed ilyasova so maybe a trade like this could work:

again the trade machine isnt working for me or anyone on the net right now, idk why but here is the link maybe it works for you:

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine/?tradeId=chkeab7

here is the trade though:

bucks get
khris humphries
marshon brooks
tyshawn taylor and draft pick

nets get:
ersan ilyasova
drew gooden
tyshawn taylor

this is not bad for both teams but I think the catch here for the bucks is that if they are trading ellis or ilyasova or even jennings then they want gooden, dalembart, or udrih included in deals as well so if the nets can take back gooden then a deal can get done, but we will see.

I think the bucks will wait right now until the offseason to make a move concerning brandon jennings they are in playoff contention right now and should secure a playoff seed anywhere between the 6-8 seed so we will see what happens. I think the most likely to move is monta ellis however if a deal comes that the bucks love then they might trade brandon jennings, he might be the player that is the surprise trade to happen.

I think the suns offer a good deal and there was a rumor earlier in the year of brandon jennings to the suns for a package of marcin gortat and goran dragic:
http://www.milwaukeesportsgeeks.com/bucks/810-nba-trade-rumors-brandon-jennings-to-the-phoenix-suns.html

I think a trade like this would work:

bucks get:

marcin gortat
goran dragic
jared dudley
draft pick

suns get
brandon jennings
samel dalembart
ekpe udoh
mike dunleavy

here is the trade but i doubt it works on trade machine idk what is wrong again... http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine/?tradeId=bx8ksxo

the suns get a young player to build around and get a young big along with expiring contracts as well. the bucks get a young point guard who is pass first and get a center to play with sanders down low while dudley can form a duo with ellis and dragic in the backcourt this would be nice because ellis and jennings both need the ball in their hands. under this team dragic could pass the ball all day and ellis gets the offense built around him. then they would have a deep rotation down low with mba a moute and ilyasova needing playing time, so maybe they can find a 3rd team to get involved or finally trade ilyasova to the nets or some team like the rockets for other players. they can be a super deep team similar to the nuggets except they might be even more balanced out.

Celtics have Rondo so no need for Jennings. Unless they go with 2 pg line up? Knick have nothing to offer. Knick draft pick is like #26 so far. Not much else. Shumpert coming off of injury. Lakers only have Gasol/Meeks package. But with Gasol injury he's of no interests of the Bucks stand point now. Even though sounds like he will play with a boot on. Believe Bucks will force Gooden in most Jennings trade package. One article mentioned Dragic and Gortat. Thought that was a lot to give up for Jennings. More would have to be added to the deal for salaries to work. Dudley been appearing in trade rumors as well. Jazz could use Jennings.

02-13-2013, 12:26 PM
the more I think about the more I think a brandon jennings trade is on the horizon. lots of teams can use him and there are lots of good trade packages. the suns and jazz have nice packages for jennings and are capable of absorbing gooden's contract along with dalembart or udrih's expiring contract. we will have to wait and see what happens with that.

things are finally beginning to heat up! here we go baby! trade season!!! here is a good link that gives you all the latest rumors up to date:

http://www.foxsportsohio.com/02/12/13/NBA-trade-rumors-begin-serious-swirl/msn_landing.html?blockID=863055&feedID=3725

this is not bad if u look at the rumors, we have talked about most of them on this thread already lol nice job guys.

but the thing that intrigues me is the hawks, nets, and possibly the cavs being the third team. taking khris humphries contract while getting a draft pick from possibly the nets and the hawks both would be nice. here is a trade I was thinking about:

http://www.foxsportsohio.com/02/12/13/NBA-trade-rumors-begin-serious-swirl/msn_landing.html?blockID=863055&feedID=3725

nets get
josh smith

hawks get
mareese speights
daniel gibson
omri casspi
marshon brooks
draft pick

cavs get
khris humphries
tyshawn taylor
draft picks

this is not bad for all sides. the nets get the forward they want and ight just be a hawks 2.0 but possibly better. the hawks get a young center in speights, get brooks, and get expiring contracts for smith. the cavs get draft picks and get humphries who they wanted in the offseason and almost got in a potential trade with the nets and magic in the summer if you remember. but the hawks can get way more for this so idk what the hawks would be thinking there. I still think the best trade is with the spurs or the suns and trades like these ones still probe my point hahha.

the possibility of the hornets trading eric gordon to the pacers is not bad. I like granger for gordon, that is great for both sides. we could see a deal like this:

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine/?tradeId=ajtrcsu

hornets get
danny granger
dj augustin
jeff penergraph

pacers get
eric gordon
jason smith

obviously draft picks and other players besides these ones that I put would be involved but this is nice. the pacers get the shooter they need in gordon who can stretch the floor and catch and shoot. while he has the ball in his hands he can attack the basket and is a capable passer. the hornets get a scorer they need in order to build around and get a young point guard to help vasquez plus they open up more playing room for austin rivers which is not bad as well. these are small rumors and the pacers and hornets are unlikely to make a deal but they sound cool lol

mbsalame123
02-13-2013, 12:37 PM
the bulls it seems like are trying to trade boozer while he has the highest trade value he's had in over 2 years. he was almost an all star this year and could still make it if somehow other injuries to players in the all star game were to happen. theya re rumored to possibly making a deal with the nets, the jazz and the raptors. so we will see what happens there. they might want to package boozer along with hamilton and the charlotte pick and teague or robinson for some players. so we will see what happens in chicago, especially with rose's return still in question.

http://raptorsrapture.com/2013/02/12/nba-trade-rumors-toronto-raptors-ship-andrea-bargnani-out-for-ersan-ilyasova/

I read somewhere else that a deal might be close to happening..... idk how accurate this is but it would be nice for both sides if you think about it.

the raptors can offer bargnani with anderson and a draft pick for ilyasova and drew gooden. giving the bucks an opportunity to unload gooden's contract would be nice so we will see what happens. but wow if this deal gets done then the raptors will have a big chance of stealing a playoff spot this year.

imagine a lineup like this:

jonas valenciunas
ersan ilyasova
rudy gay
demmar derrozan
kyle lowry
bench: landry fields, terrence ross, amir johnson, john lucas, aaron gray, mickael pietrus, and drew gooden

what do you think? not bad?

and the bucks get bargnani who might fit well with the bucks while getting a draft pick, they might be able to find a better fit but this is not bad at all.

I think they only reason you do this kind of trade is for a salary dump. The talent coming back to the suns is just not great enough in my opinion.. Jennings is the only player worth anything to me and he only has a year on his contract. Also as a Suns fan i would not be willing to throw in a draft pick in this kind of trade because like I said before Jennings is the only player worth something to me..

I would do a trade more like this with a suns draft pick included.

Posted this in the Jennings forum, figured it fits in this thread as well.


Well looks like SOMETHING is gonna...

Brandon Jennings has "irreconcilable differences" with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to one source.

Jennings is frustrated that he was unable to come to terms with the Bucks on a long-term extension, according to sources.

Jennings is also interested in playing in a bigger market.

The Bucks would be able to match any offer sheet Jennings signs this offseason should they not trade him.

Jennings recently changed agents and either wants to be traded before the deadline, or to sign an offer sheet with a rival team in the summer that is difficult for the Bucks to match.

The Dallas Mavericks, Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks are viewed as the three most likely destinations for Jennings.

Via Chad Ford/ESPN
Atlanta seems interesting, how about this?

Atl sends
J. Smith
J. Teague

Mil sends:
Jennings
Illiasova
Trade exception from s. Jackson trade

Short term contracts for Milwaukee, if they don't want to resign smith or Teague, they can let them walk and have cap space.

Starting 5
Teague
Ellis
Dunleavy/Smith
Smith/Sanders
Sanders/Dalembert

Atl gets a talented young player in Jennings, who they can let walk if they want cap space, and get a long term answer at sf/pf in illiasova for a better value than they would've gotten smith for, plus a trade exception for future moves.

Atl Starting 5
Jennings/Williams
Williams/korver/Jennings
Illiasova/Harris/korver
Horford/Illiasova
Pachulia/Horford/(Howard?)

Just a thought.

I see your point on giving up 2 pieces of your back court but Dudley has been playing the 2 spot with Pj Tucker starting at the 3. Or visa versa on how you want to see it. Either way Dudley is a starter who is able to play the 2 or three and able to gaurd multible positions. Gortat is a clear upgrade over Dalembert and Dragic is prob the only real upside good signing for our team. The Suns themselves need a go to scorer and I think that is why I rather have ellis than Jennings. So if there is a way to work out something where we keep Dragic and they keep Jennings I'd be okay with that as well.

As for the ilyasova for andrea bargnani deal I think Toronto looses some size on the deal but overall not to bad. Ilyasova has more years on his contract but at a 3 mil dollar gap. So if I where Toronto I would stay away from the deal only because if nothing else Bargnani atleast is a stretch 5 and they already Gay who plays the same position as Ilyasove. That would give Toronto a log jam at the SF position.

they're trying... they're listening to offers, but they wanna get the best deal possible for two very good frontcourt players. It may take some time, it may not even be at this deadline. But they'll eventually move them out of the way for Kanter and favors

the bulls and raptors both realize that they don't have any other takers for boozer and bargnani and it is looking more and more likely that a trade between the 2 happens so we will see what happens there. I honestly like the idea of boozer to the raptors as he would make them super competitive and bargnani would stretch the floor and open up minutes for gibson who people don't realize but he finishes off most games for the bulls.

the celtics are rumored to be the ideal landing spot for josh smith idk why but they might have something the hawks want maybe KG???? idk but we will see what happens there.

https://twitter.com/GeryWoelfel

go look at his tweet, I am not sure how accurate it is.

as far as the jazz trade goes we are not sure who they want to trade. is it jefferson or millsap. one day they say millsap, the other day they say jefferson but that is what happens with utah, they are very quiet about deals so I expect something to happen soon.

yes the hawks and sixers discussed a deal for evan turner and spencer hawes, however that isn't happening. right now things will be quiet since its all star weekend but the bobcats appear to be committed to getting rid of ben gordon after his altercation with coach dunlap.

the celtics appear to be looking for a deal and the knicks want to get someone who can give them that extra "humph" for a big run in the playoffs, and they are committed to moving iman shumpert in order for that to happen.

I seriously doubt the bucks trade jennings, the most likely player traded will be monta ellis or ersan ilyasova but you never know, the bucks might have a change of heart and if jennings becomes too expensive for them they will trade him.

goran dragic and marcin gortat would be a good fit with monta ellis there as well.

Eric Gordon is a dbag the pelicans need to trade his *** and get something for him rather than him pouting on the bench all the time I feel like I haven't even seen him play in a New Orleans Jersey yetBut the team is also stubborn for not getting it through their heads that Gordon doesn't want to play for them. They should've let him go in the off-season instead of stalling the inevitable. He wants out, and he'll get out.

^^^this is spot on .... lol why would they let him sign elsewhere ? He is an asset to them it was smart to keep him I don't care what he wanted ... he was a key piece in the cp3 deal so good for them to get something rather then nothing for him

i'm not sure its as bad as the national media has made it out to be. he bought the whole staff breakfast and has at least put in an effort. i dont think you do that for those you hate lol.

i dont think he gets moved untill next year anyway. at least you can get him in shape and increase his value if he stays healthy.

well it looks like the bulls and raptors deal is close to being completed, it just comes down to the raptors saying yes. the deal is going to be carlos boozer and nate robinson for andrea bargnani and john lucas, draft picks might be included but we will see.
here is the link: http://www.sbnation.com/2013/2/15/3992676/nba-trade-rumors-2013-andrea-bargnani-carlos-boozer-raptors-bulls

I like this trade for both sides as the bulls save money, get a stretch 4, get a nice point guard, pair 2 italians together (bargnani and marco) and open up playing time for taj gibson.
the raptors become instant playoff contenders and will compete for years to come, possibly building a team similar to the grizzlies with gay, derrozan, lowry and boozer and dont forget landry fields along with terrenc ross, amir johnson, and jonas valenciunas.... that is a nice team.

eric gordon has been in a flux with anthony davis, the pelicans and his injuries. I dont think the relationship is as bad as people think it is between he and the team but I can see a trade happening, just not now. they want a star for the change and having him healthy for a full season will become a much better assessment than having him part time. I can see them trading eric gordon in the summer if things dont work out the way they are planned to.

an interesting thing that I heard right now on NBA TV during the all star game interviews was David Aldridge saying that Brandon Jennings is the most likely player from Milwaukee to get traded. He wasn't given a contract extension and he is looking like a too expensive player for the team to resign, plus they want to change the backcourt of ellis and jennings since it is considered to be a little small.

Aldridge mentioned the utah jazz as a possible fit for jennings and they have a nice package to offer the bucks, they actually spoke about a trade earlier in the year so that is interesting to hear.

what do you think? Can we see al jefferson to the bucks for brandon jennings in some sort of package like that? that could bring so many benifets to the team. they'll have jefferson with sanders down low and then ellis in the backcourt with someone else who they can get in a possible ersan ilyasova trade (he is expandable). so we will see what happens but I think the bucks will trade brandon jennings.

mbsalame123
02-15-2013, 03:29 PM

these are the players that will get traded in my opinion:

carlos boozer
andrea bargnani
josh smith
brandon jennings
ersan ilyasova
khris humphries
marshon brooks
rodney stuckey
al jefferson
luke ridnour
iman shumpert

other players will get moved but this is what it looks like right now.

That twitter rumor from Legion Sports mentioned other day Nets have offer on table of Humphries and Brooks and a pick for Ersan. Not sure what other players from Milwaukee's end gets thrown in.

Also on Milwaukee radio Bucks insider Gery Woelfel said 50/50 chance Ellis or Jennings dealt. Few weeks back rumors were all Ellis. But with Jennings changing agents seems like he might be odd man out now. Could see Dalembert packaged with Jennings to the Suns.

I like both deals. I think the bucks will most likely trade ersan ilyasova to the nets for marshon brooks and khris humphries along with a draft pick. they pickup a nice rebounder and a good backcourt player that makes brandon jennings and monta ellis even more expandable. I think you're right brandon jennings will get traded.

I can see the jazz or the suns as the most likely possibilities. the jazz can offer paul millsap or al jefferson while the suns can offer a replacement point guard in goran dragic and a center in marcin gortat along with a draft pick.

I like the suns deal better but I dont know how reluctant the suns would be with making this trade.

I think the jazz are going to look for salary relief and a cheaper point guard plus they haven't been mentioned in any rumors with the bucks so I doubt a deal happens between them.

mbsalame123
02-16-2013, 05:18 AM
I see these trades happening right now(again trade machine isnt working):

suns trade:

marcin gortat
goran dragic
draft pick

to the bucks for:
brandon jennings
samuel dalembart
tobias harris or another player

bucks trade
ersan ilyasova and drew gooden

to the nets for
khris humphries
marshon brooks and a draft pick

the suns get a point guard for the future that would fit well. they get an expiring contract in dalembart who would serve as a temporary replacement at center and they would have tons of cap space for the summer.

the nets get the forward they have been coveting for a while and have been trying to get for over 2 years. he provides rebounding, versatility, and shooting for a team that is starting reggie evens at power forward (although reggie is one of the best rebounders in the league)

the bucks get rid of a contract that is probably leaving them in the summer. they commit to monta ellis and get draft picks and lots of young talent while saving money and getting rid of bad contracts. the bucks get a nice center to play downlow with larry sanders. add ekpe udoh and khris humphries to the depth off the bench along with john henson and that is a beautiful low post. they get a replacement point guard who fits the bucks system much better. dragic is a pass first point guard who will run plays for ellis and others (something that ellis has actually never had, even in golden state he didnt have that). they also get a young stud to come off the bench as a potential sixth man.

the bucks rotation would look like this:

marcin gortat
larry sanders
luc richard mbah a moute
monta ellis
goran dragic
bench: marshon brooks, mike dunleavy, ekpe udoh, khris humphries, beno udrih, john henson, and marquis daniels along with doron lamb and joel przybilla for added depth

there are rumors resurfacing of a potential celtics and clippers deal happening and this time the deal looks more intriguing. here is the link:

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--sources--clippers--celtics-discussing-kevin-garnett-trade--055506411.html

instead of the rumored deal of kevin garnett for caron butler and eric bledsoe, it is now kevin garnett for eric bledsoe and deandre jordan.

look at the potential of this trade! KG would provide the clippers with a veteran presence who can play tremendous defense, is consistent, can shoot and has experience to take over a game for a team even at his age right now. look at the most recent game played against the bulls, he has been the celtics go to player this year and is still dominating. the clippers would be immediate favorites in the west and would be an even better team than they are right now.
deandre jordan is very inconsistant for the clippers and he is losing minutes right now. eric bledsoe is an insurance for cp3 and if he departs but getting another superstar to play with KG would be a much better insurance for the team to resign cp3. bledsoe is good and provides a tremendous backup for the clippers but people forget that this clippers team is a very deep team and trading bledsoe would open up playing time for willie green and grant hill who have played well when they get an opportunity. just look at their rotation after the deal:

kevin garnett
blake griffin
caron butler
chauncey billups
chris paul
bench: jamal crawford, matt barnes, lamar odom, grant hill, ryan hollins, willie green, ronny turiaf

KG would be that big man anchor to this team just like tyson chandler was for the mavericks a couple years ago. people say that "lob city" would be over but actually it wouldn't. KG is playing for a tremendous point guard in rondo and fits amazingly well with him, rondo throws most of his alley oops to KG in the lowpost, its just that KG isnt as athletic and explosive as jordan. KG is like a better version of david west who cp3 played with in new orleans, he can shoot, post up, and would provide a low post presence that is much needed by the clippers. most importantly, he would be an amazing veteran out there that would help blake griffin develop his game. just look at what he has been able to do with sullinger, mentoring him and helping him blossom before his injury.

the celtics would get a young point guard to help out for now and later in the future. they get an amazing young center to help develop to the future of the celtics. this would make rondo expandable and would make peirce as well as they would finally enter rebuilding mode. they can build around bledsoe, bradley, green, sullinger, jordan and whatever players and picks they can get in the pierce and rondo trades. that is an amazing and bright future for the celtics following this historic run.

now the only thing holding back a trade is KG's no trrade clause. he can reject any trade he wants but it has been reported that he might be willing to accept a trade to LA since he has a home there and lives there over the summer and he is good friends with chauncey billups and getting an opportunity to win a title while playing for the team that is trying to take over the celtics biggest rivalry (the lakers) would be intriguing. but he said that pierce would have to get traded in order for him to accept a trade so maybe the celtics can package pierce into a bigger deal with the clippers sending back butler and odom along with draft picks to the celtics, but that is too difficult to happen so maybe the insure KG that pierce will be next to get traded and so that is why he accepts a trade.

but we will see! the spurs and thunder better watch out for the clippers if this deal ends up happening.

mbsalame123
02-16-2013, 05:41 AM
the bulls and raptors could get a deal done but this is a everything fails trade for the raptors. the raptors will look for a better deal but if they can't then they will make the trade with the bulls which would send boozer along with nate robinson to the raptors for andrea bargnani and john lucas.

there are talks of the raptors and sixers talking about a trade that would send bargnani to the sixers for some sort of package of spencer hawes so we will see what happens there. here is the link: http://www.libertyballers.com/2013/2/15/3993984/andrea-bargnani-trade-rumor-raptors-sixers-spencer-hawes

I can see a trade like this happening between the sixers and raptors:

spencer hawes and royal ivey for andrea bargnani

the sixers would get a stretch 4 to pair with bynum down low and would create nice matchup problems for teams just like howard and anderson did in orlando last year. the raptors get a nice big man to play down low as well.

we will see what happens there. it also looks like the magic won't be trading jj reddick but you never know what can happen.

things are heating up right now during the all star break and we will see several trades happen this coming week.

I expect these players to get moved this week:

brandon jennings
al jefferson
josh smith
samuel dalembart
ersan ilyasova
marcin gortat
jared dudley
rip hamilton
andrea bargnani
carlos boozer
wilson chandler
timofey mosgov

and possibly other teams.

Think that's too much for the Suns to give up. Leave the pick out and leave Harris out. Jennings might be the biggest "name" in that trade. But Dragic probably shooting at a better %. Yeah Gortat been rumored to be unhappy not involved much in the offense. So the Suns might think he has negative attitude/value maybe? Or the Suns just wanna unload Dragic and Gortat contracts?

Dalembert is a nice expiring contract and playing well since Skiles been fired/ once he got some minutes. Would love to see Ersan dealt for Marshon Brooks then any other trade is just a bonus for Milwaukee. Also been known Milwaukee wanted Humphries a few years back. Also been know the Nets wanted Ersan last few seasons as well.

02-16-2013, 11:07 AM

mbsalame123
02-16-2013, 11:48 AM
the more I think about it, the more I believe the suns wont make a deal with the suns. I dont know about the suns, it seems like they want to get rid of jared dudley and marcin gortat and I don't think they really need brandon jennings, especially if the bucks are asking for a whole lot.

I think at the end of the day the bucks will trade ersan ilyasova, just like what MillerHighLife said. the bucks had interest in humphries in the past and just last year they almost signed him before they agreed to a deal with ilyasova, and getting brooks would be nice so I expect a deal between brooklyn and the bucks to go down.

If the bucks do trade brandon jennings, I can see him going to the Utah Jazz who really need a point guard right now for either paul millsap or al jefferson.

I can see a trade like this:

samuel dalembart
mike dunleavy
brandon jennings

to the jazz for

al jefferson and raja bell

or I can see a paul millsap trade that sends millsap along with bell for jennings and dunleavy and maybe gooden or dalembart.

it is almost 100% true that josh smith will be playing for a different team by friday next week. several teams are coming up with trade packages and its only a matter of time before danny ferry chooses a package and gets a deal done. the hawks can't afford to sign josh smith to a maximum contract, or I mean to say that they can afford him but they don't want to pay him the max because honestly he isnt worth it. but other teams like the suns, spurs, mavs, celtics, bucks, nets, etc. might be willing too. we have heard several rumors of possible trade packages but idk which one is the best.

Is it just me or is this guy bascilly having conversations with himself the last two pages if not longer? hahaha.

No way the suns do the bucks trade. I hope we blow it up, the only player I'd like to keep is Dragic, our organization and fan base loves him. If we blow up the team doesn't make much sense keeping him though. I'd love to move Gortat, Beasley(not going to happen), Dudley, Scola and Telfair. In reality knowing our owner and current front office we'll probably make one minor move that does nothing for us. :facepalm:
I'm ready for a full on blow-up and to hit the restart button. The only problem is we've been pretty horrible at drafting the past few years. Doesn't look like a very bright future for us anytime soon unfortunatley..:confused:

Even though Josh Smith bad mouth Milwaukee a few years back and he wants a max and most likely wouldn't re-sign here. So it be more of a salary dump then anything of dumping Ersan and throwing Jennings and not stuck over paying him. But if no other young assets tossed in then Smith walks then its just a half a season rental.

there you have it. from now until the trade deadline we are going to hear a ton of rumors and most of them will be fake or won't have any legs to them.

in case you havent heard, KG isn't waiving his no trade clause
http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nba/2013/02/16/boston-celtics-kevin-garnett-no-trade-clause/1924709/

so at the end of the day we have to look at the reality of things. josh smith will most likely not get traded now lol yes i know im bipolar but idk. I just want this thing to get over with. every year I get so hooked to the trade deadline and all the rumors, just like all of us do and we work our minds and brains and at the end nothing happens. lots of players have been rumored to be on the move but they won't be moved. a perfect example is jj reddick who was considered almost 100% chance to be moved and now the magic are saying they won't move him.

I think Utah sees that it can play mo williams at the 2 as a shooter and scorer while getting a decent point guard but either way I am starting to doubt the bucks trade jennings. they are more likely to trade ellis it looks like than jennings. I know 1 thing, if utah trades al jefferson or paul millsap which they are probably going to do, then they will be looking for a back court player which could develop them into a scary playoff team. watch out for tyreke evans and the jazz. millsap for evans? not bad for either team.

I doubt any move happen today or tomorrow. we will see a trade happen on tuesday for sure but nothing in these next couple days, in my opinion.

does anyone have any updates other than the most recent one about the KG not waiving his no trade clause and josh smith to the bucks or andrea bargnani to the bobcats (that is the most recent rumor).

Wizards shopping Crawford.

yeah I heard about that. it'll be interesting to see who can get up. virtually any team can get him... maybe Lakers? we'll see what happens. the wizards are normally quiet about their deals (look at last year mcgee for nene). speaking of out of nowhere deals.... what deal do you think will surprise us all?

last year the wizards, nuggets, clippers deal that sent nick young to the clippers, nene to the wizards, and mcgee to the nuggets, surprised everyone.

will we see a team trade their superstar??? possibly the lakers trading dwight? lol

Bucks were interested in a Crawford last year at the deadline. Cant remember if it was Jordan Crawford or Jamal Crawford. Curious what teams would be interested in Dalembert? Miami could use him but there bad trading partners. Redick talks got quiet as of late. Probably cause the asking price of a first rounder is steep for a soon to be UFA. Was hoping the Bucks did a trade today so we can get them new players in before Tuesday's game.

I doubt anything happens right now especially with the bucks. last year nothing happened until 1 or 2 days before the deadline. I expect something to happen on tuesday and from then on. but sunday and monday will just be filled with rumors and all star hangover lol.

there are talks that the jazz and clipper are figuring out a deal that would send eric bledsoe to the jazz for paul millsap. here is the link: http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/8956469/los-angeles-clippers-utah-jazz-talk-eric-bledsoe-paul-millsap-sources-say

this is not bad of a deal for both sides. the jazz get the guard they want and other pieces while the clippers get a nice versatile forward who can play some 3 as well.

mbsalame123
02-17-2013, 09:55 AM
a possible trade could be: caron butler and eric bledsoe for paul millsap and raja bell.

the jazz get 2 good backcourt players to help for a playoff push and start off with a core of favors, kanter, hayward, and bledsoe with butler and jefferson serving as anchors for the mean time.
the clippers get a nice player to pair with cp3 and griffin and they get another veteran guard who can shoot and defend in bell.

MILLERHIGHLIFE

I think any trade with Jazz will most likely include Bell as a throw in since they been trying to deal him since like last season.

I think the team that is willing to take bell in any potential deal for millsap or jefferson will be considered the favorite. I really like this deal drawn out between the clippers and jazz. I honestly can't see any other deal happening that is better than this for the jazz. bledsoe has an amazing future and would be amazing for the jazz. just look at what he was able to do last year when he and mo williams came off the bench, they made a nice 1-2 duo in the backcourt and this could work very well in utah as well with williams coming back very soon from injury.

hahahaha yeah it will make things easier.

I still sense the suns have something up their sleeves. the hawks still remain a possibility. the mavericks look like the most realistic option for jennings. adding him with nowitski and another star free agent would be nice.

what do you think? will the clippers trade bledsoe for someone like millsap? would he fit with the clippers?

mbsalame123
02-17-2013, 11:37 AM
Is it just me or is this guy bascilly having conversations with himself the last two pages if not longer? hahaha.

No way the suns do the bucks trade. I hope we blow it up, the only player I'd like to keep is Dragic, our organization and fan base loves him. If we blow up the team doesn't make much sense keeping him though. I'd love to move Gortat, Beasley(not going to happen), Dudley, Scola and Telfair. In reality knowing our owner and current front office we'll probably make one minor move that does nothing for us. :facepalm:
I'm ready for a full on blow-up and to hit the restart button. The only problem is we've been pretty horrible at drafting the past few years. Doesn't look like a very bright future for us anytime soon unfortunatley..:confused:

I have actually been having a convo with myself lol but thanks to MILLERHIGHLIFE he keeps putting some amazing updates on here S/O lol.

but yeah I agree with you the suns just got rid of their superstar (nash) and dont want to add another player. They need to start over and they will do it starting this week. I expect them to trade at last jared dudley and marcin gortat and then trading scola, beasley and other players in the offseason.

coming into this season I liked the talent the suns possessed on paper and they should be better than what their standings show. getting a good player in the draft like shabaz mohammed and then going out there and trading their stars for some other draft picks and young players will be a nice building block for the future.

goran dragic is a future steve nash, back before he was moved to the rockets, he was amazing and people said he was the next version of nash. so here we go we got a few more days before the trade deadline.... here we go!

Clippers would be dumb to do that trade portland should trade JJ Hickson,Jared Jeffries,picks,cash for DeAndre Jordan

the blazers need to add depth and right now they barely have any but getting deandre jordan wouldn't be bad at all but I doubt the clippers want to trade him right now, jordan is more valuable to the team than hickson who's contract expires at the end of this season.

one thing to watch out for is marcin gortat to the blazers. the blazers could use a nice center to complete their starting lineup and they could trade hickson with meyers leonard and another player and draft pick for gortat and dudley. that is not bad at all for either side. the suns get 2 young centers (hickson was coveted by the suns before when he was with the cavs and they were trying to trade amare for hickson (if only the cavs were smart enough to do that trade lol)). the blazers would get an amazing center to pair down low with gortat and they would get a nice 2/3 wing that can shoot and play some defense.

we will see what happens but I doubt the blazers move hickson.

potential dark horse in the josh smith sweepstakes is the washington wizards. could they package their young players and a contract of ariza, okafor, or nene for josh smith? but I think like the grizzlies, the hawks will want bradley beal so I doubt a deal happens, but I am more then sure that josh smith will be sporting a new jersey by the end of the week.

the pistons actually like jerebko. they want to get rid of stuckey, villanuava and possibly maxiell and/or bynum. they want to open up room for players like jerebko and drummond along with singler and others.

I doubt any big trade happens for detroit but they could deal bynum to a team like the thunder or something like that.

yeah I dont understand how millsap can fit with the clippers but if he can play small forward consistently, then that would be amazing. maybe they figure out a 3 way deal that sends millsap to a third team and the clippers get what they want, a small forward and a nice backup big man.

dido to that. josh smith will be traded but where? there is no clear cut favorite or team that fits the picture. the recent rumors have the bucks and celtics as possibilities with the nets and wizards with some other teams in the run but I don't see any deal that catches my eyes or would catch the hawks eyes. I think we see a surprise team snatch him and the suns are no longer interested or probably never had interest in josh smith so that is a team to eliminate.

people are saying this is one of the quietest trade deadlines. things have never been this quiet before so its interesting to see what will happen. I think since a lot of teams are scared of the luxury tax that they are either standing pat or waiting until the offseason. the biggest rumors out there are josh smith and al jefferson or paul millsap and even they might not get traded. I think its because most of the moves happened in the summer so teams don't have much that they want to change.

i still see many deals happening but all small deals like a team trading for a backup point guard or expiring contracts. the biggest players getting traded will be josh smith, jefferson or millsap, and monta ellis, and that is pretty much it.

I cant wait! tomorrow (tuesday) we will see at last 1 trade... watch!

Only way he lands in BKN is in a 3-team deal, I don't see them pulling it off straight up.

I guess great minds think alike lol I agree with you 100%. the hawks want a center and draft picks in order to move horford to the 4 and the nets can't provide that with a package of humphries and brooks so unless they get a 3rd team (which is very difficult), I doubt he ends up in brooklyn, but stranger things have happened and the nets are one of the very few teams that are good at building multiple team trades so we'll see what happens there.

as far as the sixers go, I remember reading that they weren't as interested in offering turner and hawes for smith but the potential of that deal is awsome. the hawks get a nice wing to play with horford at the 4 and hawes at the 5.

A sleeper is the bucks who have the most assets to offer. they have draft picks, young centers (ekpe udoh and john henson) and expiring contracts (samuel dalembart) along with players like monta ellis and ersan ilyasova to send to the hawks. If they can get an approval by josh smith that he would resign with the bucks then I can see him playing for the bucks, but i doubt it since he has said time and time again that he hates Milwaukee so we will see.

It is sounding more and more exciting when thinking about the potential of josh smith with the sixers paired with bynum and holiday, a nice big 3.

I just want to give a shout out to the Buss family, RIP Jerry Bus, he was amazing! he will be remembered, I feel so sad. but this will only ignite the lakers (watch for a surprise second half push by the team). I think the lakers will look at adding a big man like jermaine oneal but will most likely stand pat or go to the free agent market and sign someone like kenyon martin.

lol I think your dream will come true. the spurs are almost 100% going to trade Dejuan Blair, but it might be for just a second round pick, but still not bad. However, they can include him in a bigger deal for al jefferson or josh smith so pay attention to that.

As a spurs fan you should watch out for what the spurs do in the next couple of days. they are dark horses for both al jefferson and josh smith and might offer the best trade package out of all teams in the hunt for both players. As a nuggets fan, the spurs are one of my favorite teams besides denver and I always pick them as my favorites for the NBA Finals but they've let me down in the past, hopefully this year can be their year. tim duncan and tony parker are playing amazing and kawhi leonard along with danny green and tiago splitter are coming into their own.

the raptors are trying to trade andrea bargnani but it is most likely not happening right now and the'll wait until the summer. they are looking at a backup point guard like luke ridnour right now instead of something big. josh smith is almost gaurunteed to get traded but to where?! there seems to be no clear destination for this guy, unlike the rudy gay trade so it'll be interested to see what happens but expect smith to be rocking a new jersey by friday.

teams like the sixers, suns, bucks, and nets to make some nice deals. I think smith ends up in brooklyn with a third team being involved while the bucks trade away ellis and possibly ilyasova for someone, the suns get rid of gortat and dudley as well.

yeah that is where I got the rumor from. although jj reddick has no defense I like this deal much better than the jared dudley deal.

I honestly don't expect any major deals at this point, because most teams with cap space can just acquire some of the available free agent stars this summer without giving up much of anything. The four teams to watch are the Clippers, Hawks, Celtics and Jazz. The Clippers are the one contending team with an attractive piece (Bledsoe) who would be willing to take on a big contract before the trade deadline if it makes them a better team. The Hawks and Jazz both have expiring free agents they want to deal before the deadline if possible and the Celtics will try to get the most value they can for Garnett and Pierce if they can.

But I don't see the Celtics moving Pierce or Garnett, not when they've been playing better as of late and are climbing the playoff standings. And the Hawks and Jazz will have to accept the fact that if they want to deal Smith, Millsap or Jefferson, they'll have to do it for pennies on the dollar. No one is going to trade great value for a couple of months of one of those guys and no guarantees at a long-term deal.

And while there may be a ton of rumors about Dwight Howard, no way will the stubborn Lakers make a move before the deadline. The Lakers are determined to battle it out with the Rockets and Mavericks in the offseason and probably still think they have an inside shot to retain Dwight. That's also why you likely won't see either Texas team make a significant move before the deadline.

The four teams to watch are the Clippers, Hawks, Celtics and Jazz. The Clippers are the one contending team with an attractive piece (Bledsoe) who would be willing to take on a big contract before the trade deadline if it makes them a better team. The Hawks and Jazz both have expiring free agents they want to deal before the deadline if possible and the Celtics will try to get the most value they can for Garnett and Pierce if they can.

But I don't see the Celtics moving Pierce or Garnett, not when they've been playing better as of late and are climbing the playoff standings. And the Hawks and Jazz will have to accept the fact that if they want to deal Smith, Millsap or Jefferson, they'll have to do it for pennies on the dollar. No one is going to trade great value for a couple of months of one of those guys and no guarantees at a long-term deal.

And while there may be a ton of rumors about Dwight Howard, no way will the stubborn Lakers make a move before the deadline. The Lakers are determined to battle it out with the Rockets and Mavericks in the offseason and probably still think they have an inside shot to retain Dwight. That's also why you likely won't see either Texas team make a significant move before the deadline.

Dwight Howard isn't getting traded. the celtics aren't trading KG nor Paul Pierce. you're right we wont see many big trades but we will see a ton of small trades. the biggest trades we will see is a josh smith, monta ellis, and paul millsap or al jefferson trade.

it'll be interesting to see what happens but I could see a ton of teams making deals to get under the salary cap or make a run for the playoffs/championship.

bucks:

hump
brooks

nets:

ilyasova
bah a moute

I like this trade for both sides I think the bucks might be a third team involved in the brooklyn trade. if they want hump and brooks so bad and are willing to give up ilyasova with someone like mbah a moute or dunleavy than that might be enough, plus add draft picks and tyshawn taylor from the nets.

they also said wizard made 3 players untouchable wall beal and Nene... so who in the heck would atl want on Washington beside those players?

jordan crawford, jan vesesly, martell webster, emeka okafor, trevor ariza, trevor booker, kevin seraphin, and chris singleton along with draft picks are very intriguing. if the hawks want a center and they okafor and then take booker or seraphin along with vesely or singleton and add crawford to the deal with a draft pick then they can get a good package in return for smith and someone else like deshawn stevenson

I don't think the hawks want both ariza and okafor but would take one of them which is the most logic choice: emeka okafor. he can play center with horford at the 4 and then they get Jan with Seraphin and then add webster or crawford to the deal and a draft pick for smith and stevenson. that is an amazing deal in my opinion. the hawks would get a lottery pick, get a center, 2 young big men and a nice wing that is cheap in webster and has an expiring contract or a player that they previously had in crawford who can provide the boost off the bench like lou williams did for them before the injury

I heard that the hawks covet monta ellis and like the idea of he playing with lou williams in the backcourt. so I sense that a deal with the bucks is on the horizon and the bucks virtually have the best to offer. they can offer both ilyasova and ellis along with possibly dalembart for smith, stevenson, and others so it'll be interesting to see what happens, but here is my prediction: josh smith to the bucks!

so can we see a deal happen that sends ellis along with ilyasova to the hawks for josh smith and deshawn stevenson? that is not bad at all for both sides. the hawks get a versatile forward similar to smith and get a nice back court player who they have coveted for years to pair with teague in the back court.

Well MIL and BOS don't match up too well. The only player on the Bucks that would interest BOS in a deal with Rondo is Larry Sanders. And I wouldn't give up Sanders for Rondo if I'm MIL. Building around Rondo-Smith would probably help MIL sell tickets, but it won't do much if they actually want to compete for titles.

I like the trade for all sides. the thunder get an upgrade at center who can play amazing defense, rebounds, and is consistant on the offensive end, however perkins has been great for the thunder but I like it for the thunder. the suns get a center as a temporary replacement. they get a young guard who they wanted to draft last summer and they get a draft pick (possibly the raptors pick) which is a guaranteed lottery pick.

I heard that this will only happen if monta ellis gets traded. I think if they trade for smith using ellis then they can get reddick but I doubt the bucks get smith, idk why but something tells me smith to the nets (ive been changing my opinion a lot but this is it the deadline is tomorrow and we will see smith get moved today).

I think the bucks find a team to take ellis and give them what they want and then they trade for reddick. the bucks could be a possible third team in a trade with the hawks and nets that sends humphries along with brooks to the bucks for ilyasova and draft picks and other players but I doubt that happens.

The Nets add a 1st to CHAR and Bogdanovic to ATL. Bogs one of the top scorers in Euro ball and is said to be a lottery pick this year if he was in the draft.

Why? ATL keeps their flexibility by not taking on Hump instead they take on Diop's expiring. They land two good young scorers in Bogs and Brooks.

CHAR lands Hump who they did try to sign last year. They then have two large expirings next year in Hump and Gordon and the land the 1st they are looking for for Henderson.

BK makes the move cause well they buy low on guys that are on the way out from their former teams. They don't care about the luxury tax and they improve from pretenders to contenders with the addition of Smith and Henderson.

Yes I am but Brooks and Bogdanovic aren't scrubs. They want young players and expiring contracts and that's exactly what they get. Bogdanovic is one of the best scorers in all of Euro ball and many people project him to have lottery value.

Not to mention all they've been getting offered is garbage. Monta Ellis? I mean come on the guy has been terrible this year and wants a big contract (ATL doesn't want that), C's are offering overpaid guys like Jeff Green and scrubs like Fab Melo. Suns backed out already so the market is failing quickly for Smith.

The offer is far from fair but that's what happens when you trade a guy who wants a max deal and everyone knows you aren't gonna pay it. You get crap offers.

Sounds like everyone is waiting for Smith to get traded before they start weelin and dealing.

That is what it looks like and until smith gets traded we won't see much happen. this is similar to the dwight howard saga from last year. until dwight announced that he is picking up his 1 year option, no teams made trades. However, there is almost 24 hours for teams to make trades, so I expect things to heat up, however that is not the case.

Last year we saw plenty of trades the day before the trade deadline. But this year, as it has been reported, is a very quit trade season when compared to previous years.

But I sense that smith gets traded by the end of the day and we see a ton of deals happen after.
