    Let’s go all in and pay the tax! In this hypothetical trade Tillman receives a government bailout and MDA coaches the 76ers next season.

    Rockets in: Horford and Aaron Gordon
    76ers in: PJ and EG
    Magic in: House, Rivers (S&T @ 9m), McLemore (S&T @ 9m) and Rockets FRP

    WB
    Harden
    RoCo/Nwaba
    Gordon/Green
    Horford/Bruno

    Morey will need to find a cheap vet PG who can game manage. Maybe Teague would take the TP MLE or someone else on vet min. The Rockets would have 0 assets after this trade and would be well over the tax but I think you do it for that starting 5. While AG, RoCo and Horford aren’t knock down 3pt shooters, they are consistent enough to keep the defense honest and spread the floor. The defense and rebounding would be much better with this starting 5 as well.

    Three-way blockbuster if the decision is made to move Beal and Embiid. We get involved as a facilitator.

    We do it to get younger and move EG’s deal for actual value.

    Houston trades: EG/Tucker/House
    Houston gets: Richardson/Bryant/Scott/Wagner

    Philly trades: Embiid/Richardson/Scott
    Philly gets: Beal/Tucker/House

    Washington trades: Beal/Bryant/Wagner
    Washington gets: Embiid/EG

    ORL needs more 3ball shooting.

    If they do not want EGo/House for AG then expand to 3 team trade and send EGo/House (plus FRP?) to IND with Pacers sending Oladipo to Magic.

    Aaron Gordon to Rockets.

    What are Rockets going to do with THREE 7footers?

    Why would Magic trade their only All Star PLUS all their centers for Eric Gordon pupu platter?

    Would trade one of those centers for Oubre if I'm Morey. Cannot see Rockets gutting their team and coming out of the trade with even worse 3P shooting.

    If Rockets giving up ALL their assets (Westbrook, EGo, House, McLemore, picks) then I hope they come out of this trade with Aaron Gordon, Kelly Oubre and Mo Bamba instead of Vucevic, Turner, Rubio and Bamba.

    Harden
    Oubre/Nwaba
    RoCo/PJ
    AG/Green
    Bamba/Baynes (MLE)

    Above roster is better than:

    Harden
    Rubio
    RoCo/Nwaba
    PJ
    Vuc/Turner/Bamba

    He wants to get paid and Oladipo has been feuding with the Pacers FO.

    Tell your friend that Detroit still covets Russ Westbrook.

    https://pistonpowered.com/2020/09/22/detroit-pistons-westbrook-trade/

    So same deal but with Pistons instead of Suns.

    ORL: Oladipo
    IND: EGordon, House, Pistons FRP
    DET: Westbrook, McLemore, Rockets SRP
    HOU: AGordon, Kennard, CWood (SnT)

    MLE: Aron Baynes

    Rockets:

    Harden
    Kennard/Nwaba
    RoCo/PJ
    AG
    Wood/Baynes

    Vet min signings to back up 4/5: Jeff Green, Bruno Caboclo

    Additional vet min signing options: Langston Galloway, Tyler Johnson, Josh Jackson, Dragan Bender, Justin Anderson

    Detroit gets Russ-Griffin combo they covet (both 3rd team All NBA) and become instant playoff contenders.

    Magic adds another All Star to pair with their only All Star in Vucevic while improving spacing, 3ball shooting plus clearing up logjam at 4/5. Option to NOT re-sign Fournier.

    Pacers get more spacing, defense and 3ball shooting (EGo, House) plus FRP for a disgruntled albeit talented player.

    Denver is gonna wanna keep all their guys after this run but it's going to be hard to squeeze them all in and stay under the luxury tax.

    They have to sign new deals for Plumlee, Craig, Milsap and Grant. If even one shakes loose I'd take any of them in a heartbeat

    House for Mo Wagner?

    Washington probably doesnt need Wagner and Bryant at Center, and they do need a SF who can offer some defense

    I love it.

    Add Shake Milton. Send them House.

    Russ/Shake (6-5, 7 foot wingspan)
    Harden/ Ben
    Josh Richardson / Nwaba
    Robert Covington / Mike Scott
    PJ Tucker / Bruno

    We would probably need one more addition to get rebounds like @steddinotayto says get Baynes. I'd move PJ to the bench in that scenario and use the small ball strategy as a change of pace late in the first quarter.

    Joerger is the guy I wanted in 2016 before MDA. Still think it is a good fit now.

    Is LAC crazy enough to trade Paul George for Westbrook? Talking myself into them yearning for playmaking and “leadership”.

    Harden/Rivers
    Gordon
    George/House
    Covington
    Tucker/Green

    Yeah, they’d never do that.

    Joerger with Gentry as his assistant would have me drooling.

    I posted this elsewhere but I fixed the Rockets

    https://tradenba.com/trades/oQTIKkcbs

    I think this is the most realistic trade if MDA is really hired and they need to shuffle the decks.

    Rockets become

    Russ
    Harden / Ben
    Thybulle / Nwaba
    RoCo
    Horford

    Lots of work to do with pick ups, but the core is set.

    76ers become

    Simmons
    Gordon
    Richardson / House
    Harris/PJ
    Embiid

    That's a much better balanced team.

    Dear Random Trade posters:

    When making your hypothetical lineup, PLEASE be aware that James Harden is the starting PG, and has been for quite a few years now.

    That is all.

    We got D’Antoni’s “Swiss Army Knife” Eric Gordon.

    Plays Point Guard, Shooting Guard, Small Forward......and in a pinch Power Forward / Center.

    Come get him Mike D. Then use Embiid or Tobias Harris to get CP3 from the Thunder
