    My hopeful return for Harden was on the table. Simmons, Thybulle and picks. Tilman decided to save money instead.



    Russ I was way off on.


    I never wanted Russ and I never wanted Oladipo.

    Magic are desperate for a PG.

    The Harden situation .... they sent him to his desired destination and that team didn't have much in the way of young players for compensation , nor did they have anything left of value that would have pried a promising young player from a 3rd team. They were stripped bare ....

    They weren't getting much of anything for Westbrook with that monster contract .... getting a first round pick was a win. Its not inconceivable that Wall could turn out to be a positive asset at some point..

    I hope this has merit, maybe we are waiting on Noel to be eligible to be traded. Plus picks need to added to this.

    This cleans us up going forward and gives us ROOM to grow. 3 FRP in one year is a waste because we can’t play that much youth at one time plus the youth from this year.

    1st Trade
    Denver
    In: Tucker
    Out: their FRP
    Play off push

    Atlanta
    In: E. Gordon & Denver FRP
    Out: Snell
    The scoring they need & pick for his age vs his contract.

    2nd trade
    Orlando
    In: Wall, House, McLamore, Our 2021 FRP if it happens,& 2022 Milwaukee FRP
    Out: Gordon, Ross, Bamba
    They get leadership, direction and FRP pick(s)

    3rd trade
    NYK
    In: Oladipo
    Out: Burks & Noel
    Everyone is a rental—> nothing for nothing can’t happen till February, 23

    Us
    In: A. Gordon, Ross, Bamba, Noel, Burks, and Snell
    Out: Wall, Oladipo, Gordon, Tucker, House, McLamore & FRP
    We give a lot up but are clean going forward. Most is addition by subtraction. Our current players have value but our situation has changed. Wall & Gordon’s salaries off the books. We can play the youth and let it be what it is. Saves $32.3M.

    4th trade
    Detroit
    In: Exum
    Out: Griffin, their FRP w/o protection and we still keep the other pick like it is.

    next year
    Griffin, Wood, Tate, A. Gordon, Ross, Bamba, Porter, Martin, Jones
    Plus one very high FRP

    I have no problem with this trade. Thanks D-Rock. I think everyone involved would love this especially us.

    Oladipo, House, Kurucs for Oubre, Looney, Chriss, Minny pick.

    Why Houston does it? A flier on Oubre who has been up and down on an expiring and that Minnesota pick. Some depth at the 4/5 as well.

    Why GSW does it? House provides a lot of the same punch that Oubre does at a lesser level. Oladipo fits a big defensive need and would fit long term next to Klay and Steph.

    Likely? Maybe not, that Minnesota pick is very very valuable and could be enough to package with Wiggins for a difference maker like Beal.

    Wall / KPG
    Eric/ Nwaba
    Oubre/ Brown
    Tate/ Chriss
    Wood/ Cousins/ Looney

    Trade PJ, McLemore for the best picks possible or fliers on young players out of the rotation like KZ Okpala.

    Houston doesn't have a PG apart from Wall. No one will touch his contract.

    Never happen, but this would give each team what they need. Doubt Orlando is that desperate though. Could get better picks from somebody else without eating Wall's contract.

    Isn't Dinwiddie injured? We can't tolerate any more injured players.

    Not sure what the expectation is on an Eric Gordon return, but I’d be happy with an expiring and not having to attach a FRP with him:

    Rockets: Kelly Oubre

    Warriors: Eric Gordon, 2021 SRP

    Based on a lot of the talk here
    https://tradenba.com/trades/_3Z9nafe9

    Wall/Nunn?/Jones
    Gordon/Nwaba
    Tate/Brown
    Aaron Gordon/Precious
    Wood/Bamba/Boogie

    Signed for 2021/2022 season:
    Wall, Wood, Gordon, Aaron Gordon, Tate, Precious, Bamba, KPJ, KMJ

    Heat get their "guy" and a much needed 3rd option next to Butler and Bam (mainly based on rumours already out there). Don't give up picks, Dipo sucks up Iggy and Precious' minutes.

    Magic get a 1st, a guy the wanted (House, again based on rumours at one point) and some much needed guard help. I may be one of the few who is still a Gary Harris believer, but that's just me. Magic may want another 1st?

    Nuggets get 2 x PJs! I kid.. kinda. But doubling down on defense could put them over the top. Iggy also "goes home" which is a cool story I guess. Nuggets have a few guards to take Harris place, and they give up what should be a late 1st. BMac is a very nice throw in.

    We get bigger. Younger. Long term. This does fit the mould of "our scrubs for their stars" but I don't think this is super unreasonable. I'm not sure Miami give up Nunn and may instead throw in someone else to make the money work. If that's the case, I would then want to grab Hill off the Thunder. Maybe for the Bucks pick.

    Wall and Gordon (and Boogie?/Hill?) Are our vet leaders to set the culture.
    Aaron Gordon, Wood and Tate (and Nunn?) are our young "now" players that we build around.
    KPj, Precious and Bamba are our future building blocks.

    Personally, I would love this team.
