    Fair, I just think it’s gonna depend how much a stink Beal makes ultimately. I also think picks would have to be involved.

    While it’s fair that DDR can leave WAS this summer, getting him (and his bird rights) and Porter is not nothing. But suspect some team could offer a better package to WAS built around picks.

    For Denver it’s essentially: Harris, Porter and a their late pick, for Beal. If Denver can dump Harris, I think that’s enticing even if they have to lose Porter. They’re also getting the best player in the deal that gives them a legit big three. Question is whether Denver’s pick goes to WAS or SAS.
    I believe Denver thinks Porter is more 'valuable' than Beal. For Was, I agree with you on them wanting a more pick laden package for Beal. They have to think they can get more than Nola got for Jrue Holiday and they don't really need win now players in return because they aren't going anywhere unless they can unload Westbrook (and I'm not sure who would take him but if they got 3 1st's and 2 pick swaps for Beal maybe they could attach a 1st or two to move him at that point)

    Here's a trade I could see NY putting on the table (they'd be including an unprotected or lightly protected 1st as well).

    They still have cap room and can accept an unbalanced trade and DDR should secure them a playoff spot. We get to let the kids run, pick up an asset, and save a little money.

    ^^ I like it for the pick, but whatís the thinking on two more PGs (admittedly i havenít watched these players before)? I suppose there isnít much else on the Knick roster that theyíd consider moving.

    Really just salary filler to make the deal work under the CBA and they're expendable from NY's perspective. If it were me calling the shots for the Spurs I'd waive or move Smith in a secondary trade and I'd keep Frank and kick the tires on him. I personally think he has a little upside as a roll player off the bench.

    I like it, and just seeing that the Knicks also have Dallasís first this year so they may be OK giving one up.

    Heck they would potentially have enough capspace if they resign DDR to go get Lowry in free agency for the reunion of those two.

    Exactly... they'd be in position to make that reunion happen..

    Iím still hot for Turner lol. Apparently this trade is legal:

    SAS: Turner
    BOS: LMA
    IND: Protect 1st (SAS) + 4m filler (BOS) + 2 2nds

    Then if DDR bolts, Spurs still have near max money to take a run at a RFA like J. Collins.

    I don't know why people keep putting Aldridge in trades where he'd have to play the four.

    Sure, the Celtics are undersized at the five, but what they really need is a big wing who can credibly guard fours so that Brown/Smart don't have to consistently go up a weight class.

    The Cavaliers are obviously set with Allen and as a re-building team, neither side would have interest anyway.

    The Trail Blazers only work if he's ready to accept a bench role behind Nurkic (granted, he's had recent trouble staying healthy).

    The Nets (not the type they need though), Hornets, Heat (see Celtics, but Adebayo can at least cross match) and Raptors are teams that he could make sense for.

    I wouldn't give up a 1st for Turner myself at his current price tag..

    In regard to the celtics it's purely as a big body to go against Embiid..

    If that was their primary concern, they wouldn't have turned down Turner (not that he can guard Embiid) as part of a hypothetical Hayward sign and trade, persued Millsap with the MLE and ultimately signed Thompson with it.

    Aldridge has a couple things going for him though 1) he does relatively better against Embiid than the others you listed and 2) they aren't obligated after this season.

    Still, I'm not predicting they are going to make a play for him nor do I think they'd give up much for the privilege... I'm just pointing out the reasons they might consider it.

    Exactly. Plus that TPE starts to burn a hole in Bostonís pocket here soon. I suppose they could use it on a draft-day trade, but this is really their best shot that also 1. maximizes their chances at a deep playoff run, and 2. Doesnít commit them long term
