I'd be surprised if Cleveland doesnt do something. If they don't and they are an early playoff exit, there's a chance love and/or lebron leave in the offseason.

Trade everyone of any value on the Knicks apart from Melo and Tim Hardaway Jr.

Surely Calderon, Dalembert, Shumpert or even Stat have a little bit of value to a contender.

I'm hoping the Spurs make some sort of move. While a majority of the teams lack of success has to do with injury related concerns, I would still love to see them add something even if small. Mills and CoJo are doing a quality job stepping in. I'm not even sure what type of move would be out there. But, we'll see.

Bucks could be buyers at the deadline. Also been winning without Sanders. Also sanders goes from missing games with illness to gone for personal reasons. So curious if were holding him out for trade? He's been MIA since the 50 minutes players only meeting.

As a Bucks fan we all been clamoring for a Lawson trade. I'd cough up a unprotected 2015 first and salary filler for Lawson. Lawson would put us over the top and make it to second round playoffs easily in weak east.

Mavs don't have much trade bait. You figure Dirk, Rondo, Chandler, Parson, Ellis is your core. Devin Harris off the bench and CV. Beyond them rest of the roster isn't to exciting. Also Hill is $9M.

Kevin Garnett might be the best option. He's nowhere near what he was on the offensive end but he's still fairly good in the defensive end.

Knicks have players that can fill roles for other teams. They are just on a poorly built team together. David Lee,Zach Randolph,and Jamal Crawford played together in the past and couldn't win too.

Isn't Brandon Knight your best player right now? Do you think he and Lawson could operate well together if Knight moved to the Shooting Guard spot?

Mavs could part with Aminu. He's not getting much playing time for whatever reason. I'm sure we'd also be happy to dump Raymond Felton for a big. All of the bigs I want on the Mavs are too expensive and I can't make any realistic trades using the trade machine lol. Mavs better bank on Jermaine O'Neal this season.

Goose17
01-04-2015, 05:00 AM
I think N.Y either need to trade a bunch of these "role players" (which is difficult, moving guys like J.R). Or they need to trade Melo and tank, they're sitting him for the rest of the season anyway.

Cleveland need a shot blocker and trading Waiters might be an option. Cleveland have three second round picks in this years draft and a first from Memphis. They could use them plus Waiters to get something done.

Avery Bradley would be a great fit, I'm not sure how they pry him away from Boston though lol. Okafor could be signed using that injured players exception or whatever it's called.

MILLERHIGHLIFE

Kevin Garnett might be the best option. He's nowhere near what he was on the offensive end but he's still fairly good in the defensive end. Garnett is still $12M. Would take like Harris and fat washed up Felton and three other players. Not saying Nets want Felton. He's negative value.

Garnett $12M

Devin Harris $3,878,896 $4,053,446 $4,227,996 $4,402,546
Raymond Felton $3,793,693 $3,950,313

Didn't try the ESPN trade machine but Garnett would clear out like 5 guys from your bench even if Felton was included. Like I said Mavs don't have much for trade bait if you don't trade one of your starters. You guys got most of your salary into the starters. Also Nets have maxed roster. So doubt they wanna do a 1 for 5 deal. Then waive 4 players.

Knight already was moved to SG. Marshall experiment with Knight at sg didn't last long. But I can see us trade for a pg. We been using Marshall, Wolters, Bayless at PG but Giannis been playing point forward getting about 5 assists a game. Knight still becomes back up pg in some stretches.

Nothing against KG and his value but the deal and his earnings...it's goddamn awfull. Giving up guys like Devin is unreal as well.

We're still in the lead whenever Rashard Lewis returns and we're in the mix for Jermain. However after a call from Cleveland he might be chasing the money instead. Anyway, there are other options left right now and especially once the trading mill begins, there will be plenty more. Possibly nothing outstanding but decent to fill in and get the job done.

The Knicks are looking to waive Dalembert, who makes around 1.8 million of guaranteed money. I am sure a second round pick is all it takes for a trade to happen.

He's not that bad. Especially not in todays NBA. Considering our history with centers in a Mavs uniform, he's gold as a back up. Better than Bradley, Diop, James, Raef (mainly Pf but also C) and all the others whose names I have already forgotten. So, thanks, if he's signing here at the end of (some) day.

Yea I'm thinking money is the reason he hasn't signed yet. Pretty much every team that wants to sign him is only offering the vet min. Based in the comment he made about his family I think in order for him to leave his family's ta going to have to be more than the vet min (which no one will offer).

Every year there are a hand full of vets that are cut in order to sign with other teams (like Josh Smith). Dallas' best bet may be to try and sign one of those players.

You're not watching the team every game obviously. A biased outside fan opinion shouldnt sway the cold hard truths that face this team. Harden shouldnt have to handle the ball every single play. The movement becomes stagnant and predictable. Beverly is a nice player, not by any means untouchable. A brief history of this team should let you know just how much PGs are interchangeable in this system, this current dynamic and lineup just so happens to need one that can do more than spot up shooting.

They already did by landing Shumpert, JR Smith, Mozgov and two first round picks. Not sure what else they could trade to get any better? Them first's are very late. Only legit trade piece left is Irving. AV injured. Thompson is so so. Unless they think Love bolts and they wanna cash in quick? Think they hang onto him for dear life. Just to keep LeBron happy.

Offtopic, sorry: I dunno what he's thinking and expecting. It's their first year, so anyways he should calm down in case he has those expectactions. On the ofter side, he's walking the easiest road since years, not the rocky one and already lost 3 of 5 finals. Not to mention how lucky he can be about those two he won. At least for one, he should thank God and Popovich for on each and every day, on which he wakes up. He's an awesome player but that's it.

Topic: I'm expecting more trades than we saw in recent years. Even already great teams like Houston and GS are looking to upgrade. Dallas pulled the trigger with Rondo, Houston answered with Smith and teams already on top with a stacked roster full of sheer unbelievable talent feel challenged to keep them in distance now.

It's freaky and will be even freakier how awesome some teams will be, with the money to be available in just a few seasons from now. No more big threes but big fours, filled with other stars and veterans which once were stars or superstars like KG, Allen. Bad for small market teams and NBA basketball at all....except youth and fresh talent entering the league but oh well, the past drafts showed otherwise. Sure there are young guns but the number of them is way too low.

The West is getting better and better. Even teams with rather worse records, would have a better one if they would play more the East instead of their Division and Conference. Big market Teams like NY vor NJ are struggling, just like Lakers but even they can surprise and win a few games.Detroit is having a hell of a run right now, with their bigs, D and shooting but then it's only Bulls, Wiz, Atlanta and Raps. Of those only Chicago is experienced enough but they won't get it done too, AS in reaching the Finals. Promising teams like them pop out now and then, the least make it. See OKC who already traded this year too, Clippers...maybe GS will be different. They all were labelled future champions early on, none won it.

Yes, because they are obviously a different kind. If not this year, then the following for sure. Better chance than most I named. Also didn't mention Miami and Memphis. Hope that doesn't hurt anyones feeling too. Will be interesting if Gasol and KD stay put or move on. Better the second to next if for the money. Durant should move on imo. They had Harden and ofter pieces, outcome is known. Nothing changed but all are waiting for Timmy to retire. Spurs will be tough to beat in a few years too. Got the right mix together to stay competetive and it is proben already. Not winning championships perhaps but staying high enough. They know business unless...I'll better stop.
