    Leborn comes, it is real big 3. Melo still cannot prove he can bring the team win.

    So did the odds of getting lebron decrease or increase with their newest acquisitions? remember now they have a chance of getting Michael Porter Jr next season.

    I think his top 3 choices if bought out are: Miami; Cleveland; or Houston

    I think its going to be either Cleveland or Miami, regardless of Melo's impending arrival

    Dwight Howard gets a buyout and comes back to HTine!

    (Im kidding save the rotten tomatoes)

    BUT I am interested in Noel accepting the QO from Dallas.

    So now we can put him on our radar. Our cap space is tight having Harden and CP3 as super max/max players. We are probably out of the Noel sweepstakes unless he's really just not very desired in which case we probably wouldn't be interested. I think I would rather have Capela who enjoys his role than Noel who might think he's better than his role since he went to Kentucky.

    At any rate I put Noel and Capela in around the same value as far as centers go and I feel like together they can lock down that center spot for us and possibly even allow Noel to work on his outside game a bit with a few minutes at the 4. 32 Capela/16 Noel at C and 32 Anderson/16 Noel at PF. Is it possible? Probably not. Unless Noel really expands his game and though I know he's been training on jumpers he's really not your typical PF in today's game. I just have a long time infatuation with twin towers. Hell I even wanted Asik and Howard to work knowing it couldn't.

    Him taking the qo saturates the center market next year even more and makes it likely that we can bring back Capela at a discount rate. If somehow we can't keep Capela Noel is a good backup plan for sure.

    HOU in: Melo
    HOU out: Ryno, 2020 lottery protected 1st rd pick, NG bros, MEM/MIA/CHA 2nd rd pick

    We do this bc duh

    Knicks in: Wesley Matthews (contract structure is same as melo's with player option but is 11 million dollars left per year.) NG bros, Salary Filler from POR, MEM/MÍA/CHA 2nd rd pick
    Knicks out: Carmelo Anthony

    Knicks save 22 million dollars, get out of the MeloDrama, get a solid 3 and D player and a token 2nd rd draft pick.

    Portland in: Ryan Anderson
    Portland out: Mo Harkless, Ed Davis, Salary Filler

    Portland is capped out so their only way to improve is via trade and Anderson fills a need for them in that they need more shooters besides just dame and CJ.

    Dallas in: Ed Davis, Mo Harkless, HOU 2020 first round pick lottery protected.
    Dallas out: Wes Matthews

    Mavs would save money and have cap space next summer to get a star without getting worse this year. I've talked to several fans of the mavs and they would be down

    With the Cavs allegedly open to trading for cousins; we could be a good third team to help facilitate:

    1) Cavs send Love to Houston, Brooklyn pick Fyre and Shumpert to Pelicans. Pelicans send Cousins to Cavs. Houston sends Anderson to Cleveland and a 2nd round pick to New Orleans.

    2) A better trade for New Orleans and debatably a trade that makes Cleveland worse is similar but has Thompson go to the Cavs in lieu of Fyre and Shump. Whether Cleveland believes Cousins/Anderon > Love/Thompson I'm not so sure. Especially because they give up the Brooklyn pick.

    Either way, I think Love is criminally underutilized in Cleveland and would be a great complimentary piece to Harden/Paul. Especially with D'Antomis offense, I think we'd see a resurgence of his Minnesota years.

    Alternatively we could include the Knicks and send Love there with the ngtds for Melo

    Rockets would get cut out so fast your head would spin. We're basically just stealing value in this trade. Cleveland wouldn't trade both Love and the pick for Cousins. If they would, the Pelicans would just take it for themselves. Thinking Anderson's horrendous contract and a second rounder can get back Kevin Love is pure delusion.
