What the **** just happened? Can we get a single thread going with all the trades in detail?





1. The Denver Nuggets have traded guard Arron Afflalo to the Portland Trail Blazers, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports.
The Nuggets will receive Thomas Robinson, Will Barton, Victor Claver, a lottery protected first-round draft pick in 2016 and a second-round pick, while also sending Alonzo Gee to Portland.

2. The Denver Nuggets have traded center JaVale McGee and a first-round pick to the Philadelphia 76ers, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports.

3. The Brooklyn Nets have traded power forward Kevin Garnett to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Thaddeus Young, NBA.com's David Aldridge reports.

4. The Phoenix Suns have traded Goran Dragic to the Miami Heat as part of a three-team deal, according to reports. ESPN's Marc Stein first reported Dragic was headed to Miami. In the deal, the Heat also acquire Dragic's brother, Zoran, from the Suns. Miami is sending two first-round picks and forward Danny Granger to Phoenix and trading Shawne Williams and guard Norris Cole to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans are sending guard-forward John Salmons to the Suns. Center Justin Hamilton will also leave Miami for one of the two teams.

5. The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded point guard Reggie Jackson to the Detroit Pistons as part of a three-team deal with the Utah Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports.
The Thunder will acquire Kyle Singler from the Pistons and will also send Kendrick Perkins to the Jazz in exchange for Enes Kanter, Wojnarowski reports.

6. The Detroit Pistons have acquired Tayshaun Prince in a trade with the Boston Celtics, ESPN's Marc Stein reports. The Celtics will receive Luigi Datome and Jonas Jerebko in return, Stein reports.

7. The Phoenix Suns have traded point guard Isaiah Thomas to the Boston Celtics, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. The trade could become part of a larger transaction between multiple teams, but Phoenix will receive a first-round pick in 2016 as well as shooting guard Marcus Thornton for Thomas, Wojnarowski reports.

8. The Phoenix Suns have acquired guard Brandon Knight from the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-team deal also involving the 76ers, ESPN's Marc Stein reports. As part of the trade, the Bucks will receive Michael Carter-Williams, Tyler Ennis and Miles Plumlee, Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports. The Sixers will reportedly acquire the Lakers' top-five protected draft pick from the Suns.

9. The New York Knicks have traded guard Pablo Prigioni to the Houston Rockets in return for guard Alexey Shved as well as two second round draft picks, Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Thursday.

10. The Washington Wizards have traded point guard Andre Miller to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Ramon Sessions, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports.

You don't think those are large enough contracts to combine or keep by themselves? They could have traded for McGee and a first just by sending Nash and Kelly.

I remember seeing a documentary about trades in sports and how they're usually agreed upon about 3 hours before the deadline but there's so much paperwork to fill in it takes ages for the trades to be processed. Apparently theres usually trades made and the paper work submitted but they don't get processed in time so don't happen.

Things may have changed though. Saw that documentary about ten years ago. This day and age you would assume there's less paper work.

Yeah, that's what I am wondering too. There had to be a pick in there as well, no? They could have let Kanter walk in the off-season anyway so it's a weird deal to make to get nothing back and improve another team greatly.

It's been written on the wall that MCW wasn't part of the future plans. I think the main reason is that he can't shoot (inefficient) and with Noel/Embiid as a higher priority it meant that he would be the odd man out for a trade.

Apparently the 76ers received the Lakers Top 5 protected pick this year + other assets.

Cal827
02-19-2015, 04:57 PM
Basically they loaded up on future draft picks some more.

I know they are looking to the future, but I don't understand their logic. Are they that much into analytics that a sophmore slump is enough for a team to toss a guy off their team? I mean, I know that much of the forum think MCW is a little overrated, but he still has room to grow.

The 6ers front office is aware that a Lebron James or Kevin Durant type player comes up once every decade or so, right?

By the time these guys start to mesh with each other, one of them is going to want to leave due to the losing from the previous years (E.g. What happens if the team keeps losing for the next couple seasons, while Noel becomes a Defensive Juggernaut and good starter? He'll probably bolt, leading to a recurrence of the cycle).

Don't really think that anyone is going to want to come and help them with the disarray. Which will lead them to likely having to massively overspend on inferior talent (2016 is coming up lol).

Milwaukee has the upside to be outright horrifying (while being a playoff team now, Philly pay attention lol). Didn't exactly like trading Knight, but their starting guys in the future are going to be:

PG: Carter-Williams
SG: Giannis
SF: Parker
PF: Henson
C: (We'll see about this one).

It's a damn shame that Sanders couldn't get his head together, cause this line-up would be the most freakishly athletic team out there :laugh2:

I am sure it wan't for nothing, but c'mon, how can anyone, especially any player in this league respect that FO? And you are going to put MCW's shooting woes on him? The guy has zero and I mean ZERO help anywhere else on the roster and has been constantly double teamed this season. And what exactly did McDaniels do to deserve his departure? By that logic, Shved averaged a PER of 20 and should have been the long-term solution. Don't worry, they'll trade Noel next year.

The Rockets essentially got Prigioni and KJ McDaniels for Alexey Shved, Isaiah Canaan and a bunch of mediocre 2nd rounders. :sigh:

At least they got some pieces that could contribute to the rotation for two guys who currently weren't contributing anything, but this deadline was admittedly a disappointment. When I look around and see that Dragic, Thomas, Jackson and Knight all got dealt and Houston ended up with none of them, I want to throw up in my mouth a little bit.

02-19-2015, 05:27 PM
I will put this in here as well

because he would have been a 15-25 pick in any other draft... He won rookie of the year because the field he was running against was sad and probably is one of the meh rookie of the years ever... He looked lost and terrible this year and never had a high ceiling to begin with. Him being the main guy was hurting him a bit no doubt but this is not something we will ever regret and its good we got a first in return even after his play this year. We have the pieces here that matter with a ton of cap and an abundance of draft picks over the next 2 years. This pick we just got for him will likely be a top 10 pick next off season. The problem people have with this deal on this board is because they severely overrated MCW because he won rookie of the year. The only mistake our organization made was not trading him the second he won the award instead of letting him further hurt his value by playing.

I don't know what your PG situation is like, but if Pablo gets playing time, you're going to like him. You will love his steals from inbound passes on made baskets. He is really good at those.

I think okc getting kanter, singler, Augustine was really nice for their bench. I don't think they really downgraded much at backup pg and were able to add a good offensive big to compliment Ibaka and Adams.

Miami also could make some noise in the east now if healthy with dragic, wade, deng, bosh, whiteside. Very solid starting 5.

Yeah, in terms of the playoff teams, those are the only squads that got significantly better. I like, but don't love Portland's acquisition of Afflalo based on how poor he's played this season. I think Milwaukee's deals could make them potentially better in the long run. And if Houston re-signs McDaniels in the offseason, I like his chances to make a long-term impact as a freakishly athletic 3 and D guy.

Phoenix's long-term prospects are totally questionable, but getting Knight and Thornton and a 1st rounder should at least soften the blow. And if they were going to lose Dragic anyway, Knight is a good long-term replacement.

I don't they are were trading for right now i don't know what position Giannis settles into. They got a young 6'7 PG with a lot of upside. I think MCW is a basketball player and I will not be surprised if he learns to shoot the ball- regardless i think the kid will have value in this league

I was kinda surprised 76ers have up mcdaniels, I think he will be a decent role player and he's young. Afflalo was ok for depth but not as big of an add as okc or Mia.

I am interested to see how Milwaukee and suns end up. A lot of moving pieces there but I agree that getting knight is solid since we knew dragic was gone. We will see what Kidd can do with mcw, I am not sure what to make of him as a player yet.

And nobody is crowning GS anything. For all the crap you and your buddies give people for ragging on Houston you sure spend a lot of your time trolling (and consistently being put in your place).

KD does have more covers than steph though so that probably means they'll win...I mean, if I use the SpokenJeebus formula.

your probably right it isnt whos playing the best in january and i can see okc hitting their stride at just the right time

just you know everyone crowning GS already and all

Lol at everyone crowing GS. They have the 2nd best SRS in history behind the 72 win Bulls and an insane record in what's probably the toughest conference ever, so obviously they're getting their just praise. But I bet if their was a poll of "Warriors or the field", the field would win the poll handily. Hell if it was just "OKC or GS 1st round" it would be only slightly in GS's favor.

I actually like what OKC got in return from dealing Perkins & Jackson. These guys Kanter, Singler, and DJ will be coming off the bench for OKC. Singler & DJ were starters for the Pistons and I know one point in time Kanter was a starter too...

Lolol... Harden has more covers though right? That was your big argument?

Don't worry we "ain't that good" anyway.

He's certainly killing something in Philly, not quite sure what "it" is though... Maybe morale?

These playoffs are going to be very interesting indeed.

OKC made moves to give themselves much depth, as well as additional scorers to complement Durant/Westbrook. I think Kanter is pretty much what they need below offensively. Ibaka/Adams can handle more of the defensive load (although it is a weakness on the team). OKC-GS would epic, and probably go 7 games.

In the East, Miami's starting 5 can give any of the East's best problems. Dragic, to go with that team of playoff hardened veterans, could possibly upset some teams come April.

MCW and McDaniels were "assets" though... And they've been moved for another "asset"

There's only so many you can stockpiling before fans get restless that these assets aren't becoming W's.

Definitely will be the toughest 1st round matchup ever. Setting up to be the greatest Finals run in NBA history if they pull it off. The kind of team that would smoke the Rox 4-0 by double digits each game in a series.

Hey! That's not remotely true! (And the only reason I can say that is because Houston has zero chance of facing them in the first round.)
