    Good catch. That first post wasn't serious (that poster was a serial shitposter) but no excuse for the second one. If I had to guess I'd say I was butthurt after a Rockets loss, but that's no excuse. I ****ed up. FWIW that post was from 2014; 2015 was when I smartened up to try to be a better person (when my first kid was born).

    Regardless, no, I don't think CLE would do JR for BK, but I seem to have a lower opinion of BK than most. I don't think he can get any playing time on a winning team, but many here think he can contribute. So, hey, maybe CLE would see some value in him? I don't know that Koby Altman is a great GM, so... who knows.

    Legit point about Altman. He is uproven. But they've come out of salary cap hell with Lebron. And they're rebuilding. All facts you know. So you know they ain't taking on another year of Knight just to get rid of JR for nothing. They'd want at least a first and maybe more ... if they would even do the deal at all. Knight has negative trade value as long as he ain't playing. And you know that too.

    Suns (December 15)

    Melton
    For
    Rights to Llull, Melo or MCW (filler to make it work) & 2rd pick. Low end scraps for a small poo plater.

    Paul’s relief in blow outs and develop into a solid backup that could eat minuets and grow for the future.

    Easy pass, IMO
    Porter ties up to much cap space for similar play we can get for a fraction of the cost.

    I hope the Rockets trade for Justise Winslow from the Miami Heat.

    What is his 3 point shooting percentage this season? Is he playing good defense?
    Sorry, I haven't seen any Heat games. He is on a Poison Pill contract.

    He's a good defender, I love his hustle. He'll be a good replacement for Ariza.

    It's early in the season, but I'm surprised that he is overall shooting percentage is around 33, and that his 3 point percentage is around 26.
    He is only 22, and fairly experienced by now, so he should improve on it.

    I don't know about similar play, but it's easy to pass up on his huge contract.

    Brandon Knight and Vincent Edwards to the Wizards
    Kelly Oubre Jr, and Markieff Morris to the Rockets

    Paul/Harden/Ennis/Tucker/Capela
    Gordon/Oubre Jr./Clark/Morris/Hartenstein

    solid 10 men rotation

    http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=ya5a4m8x

    Houston: Otto Porter, Nikola Vucevic
    Orlando: Bradley Beal
    Washington: Eric Gordon, Brandon Knight, Terrance Ross, Nene, Future Orlando 1stRP, One or Two Future Houston 1stRP

    Houston gets a starting PF/C who can score, rebound, shoot the 3 plus expiring contract; Also get starting SF/PF that is super efficient role player especially from the 3 but overpaid

    Orlando gets a young All-Star SG; can focus on getting a PG of the future

    Washington cleans house, saves money, and gets draft picks

    This proposal is a little more low key but could be a nice depth move:

    HOU receives: Dwyane Dedmon
    ATL receives: Chriss and Nene (I love you buddy but we need reliable back up ASAP)

    Atlanta gets an expiring freeing up $7m and a vet presence for their younger guys.

    Dedmon comes off the books end of this year, athletic big that is shooting 35% from downtown... (on decent volume).

    C rotation of Capela, Dedmon and Hart is really good.

    Also really like Bembry.

    Sign Nick Young for scraps, lock and load.

    Thoughts?
