Portland has an extra (bad) 1st round pick to throw in a trade for Kanter. They've got plenty of cap space to take on his contract and still have money to spend as well.

Would OKC take Portland's 2017 1st round pick and Cleveland's 2018 1st round pick for Kanter?

OKC doesn't have much leverage. If they want horford they need to get rid of kanter. If I was Portland I wouldn't even offer that much.

I wish the nba didn't have a salary cap just so we could see the insane amount of money guys like Lebron and KD would get Laughing

They have to be trying to move Russell if that's the case...

Oak for Russell swap. Shocked

I wonder if Kobe ratted out Shaq when he was a rookie he probably gets dealt you think? Laughing


Sixers would be foolish to do that swap straight up.


First off, I seriously doubt the Lakers are in on Mike Conley. Seems like a ploy to get the Grizzlies to pony up for him.

Secondly, I wouldn't trade Russell straight up for Okafor if my life depended on it. In fact, I'm not sure the Sixers have a package that doesn't include Ben Simmons that the Lakers would move D'Angelo Russell for. They're not trading Russell.

What incentive do they (LAL) have to make Memphis pony up?

I don't see teams doing fake inquiries (offers). What if the guy actually wants to sign a deal?

Idk what Luke has in store offensively, will he carbon copy GS? Will he run some similar stuff?

He's doesn't have the pieces in place to run a carbon copy. It's going to be similar; he's going to let JC, Ingram and Russell to run-n-gun and if they can get a Whiteside or Horford, there's going to be a lot of Russell Pick and Roll.

Plus GM's know that Kanter's a detriment defensively, which at center is a huge deal. I'd ask for other value in return with Kanter if I were taking his max contract.

Count Houston, Miami, Golden State and San Antonio among the teams interested in Timofey Mozgov, along with the Cavs, per league sources



If he could somehow get back to his 2015 form he could be a steal.

As a Trailblazer fan, I wouldnt give up more than a 2nd rounder for Kanter, and even then would only move forward with a deal after we strike out on Howard and Whiteside. The Thunder have little leverage if they truly want to move him to make space for Horford. Portland really doesnt need an offensive center like Kanter. They already have two guards that are defensively poor, adding a C that cant guard a rock would really hurt them. They would have to rely on scoring 110ppg to win.

If Horford agrees to come to OKC? They will take likely anything for Kanter.

Sticky these tweets from Bobby Marks at the top of the forum tbh:

Quote:
Can't stress enough that contracts under the new TV $ should be viewed as a % against the cap compared to actual $ figure.


Quote:
For example an $18m contract signed this July = a $13m contract based on a $70m cap from 2015-16.

But then next years cap is gonna take an even larger jump. So I think teams are using next years number as a baseline.

None. Which is why this whole Conley-to-the-Lakers rumor makes no sense. The Lakers have invested in Russell, and they've resisted overtures to trade him. They're invested in him being their PG, and if they signed Conley that would likely indicate that they view him as a SG. The bigger problem is that they'd have a TON of money tied up into their backup guards. Clarkson and Lou Williams would be something like $20M+ combined. On top of the $20M+ in Conley, that's nearly half of the cap right there between those three. For that reason alone, it makes virtually no sense for the Lakers to sign him.

Lakers have two HUGE needs. They need a mobile rim protecting center (Whiteside) and a 3&D wing (think Batum, Bazemore, etc.). PG isn't the spot they're going to pony up.
