Trade targets for your team

Just thought it would be interesting to see what kind of players other fans would want their team to trade for realistically.

Here's mine for the Celtics:

  • John Henson
  • Kenneth Faried
  • Dewayne Dedmon
  • Joe Harris
  • Tony Snell
  • Alex Abrines

Bigmen who hustle and bring defensive energy + backup shooters

ATL Hawks

Jahlil Okafor, Mario Hezonja, Bobby Portis.

There are a few other young players I'd love to have that aren't being utilized by their teams (Willy Hernangomez, Stanley Johnson), but those teams refuse to even consider trading them so it's pointless to include them.

These are three guys that I feel still have immense talent at their positions and just need a change of scenery.

Everyone hates on Okafor, and I understand he's a bad defender, but I would be thrilled to have him in a Hawks uniform and have him learn from Bud. He's still got major skills on the block. I think we are most likely to get him if anyone at all on this list.

Hezonja has CONSTATLY been buried in the depth chart and never really been allowed to grow and gain experience. As if he wasn't buried enough, they brought in Simmons (who has played very well).

And obviously either Mirotic or Portis will probably be traded after the incident. I'd love to have Portis, as he has always shown he can really contribute.

If we could get 1-2 of those guys, REALLY NAIL our draft pick (praying for Number 1) we'd be in great shape.

Ideally:

  • PG: Schroeder
  • SG: Hezonja
  • SF: Porter Jr.
  • PF: Collins
  • C: Okafor

However, we're probably not getting Hezonja and Prince will remain at the 2/3. I'd be thrilled to have Doncic, Bagley, Bamba, or Ayton in place of Porter but right now I'd rather have Porter.

It makes some sense, but part

It makes some sense, but part of me feels the 76ers would rather continue developing TLC and Justin Anderson rather than bringing another vet to take their minutes. Still that would be a pretty solid return for Okafor at this point.

If I'm the Hawks

If I'm the Hawks I do this immediately.

But like was stated above, I don't think Philly wants to add anymore veterans at the wings. I could be wrong though.

There's recent news that the Suns will try to acquire Okafor after they buy out/drop Monroe. Don't know how likely all of that is, but I'd be bummed if the Suns got their hands on Okafor after already having Booker and Jackson.

They're miles ahead of us in terms of their rebuild. I think Atlanta has one of the worst outlooks of any team at the moment. Sacramento pieces have more upside, Dallas pieces have more upside, and the Phoenix young guns obviously have more upside. All we have that looks promising for the future are Schroeder and Collins (and neither will be superstars). Everyone else I'm really not sold on. Prince and Bembry are solid pieces IMO but no stars.

To make matters worse, Atlanta clearly has a worse team (in terms of talent) than all of those 3 squads, yet we're winning more games than them...we need to embrace this rebuild.

Pistons. Stauskis, Korkmaz

Pistons.

Stauskis, Korkmaz and Justin Anderson are rotting away on Philly bench. I wouldn't mind either one. I also read a solid article on zac Randolph. Bit of a bad boy with off court problems, they compared him a bit to the rasheed Wallace pickup who was a member of the 2004 champ team.

Hezonja could also be an option.

If Miami drop off out of playoff race, I wouldn't mind James Johnson. Illysova was solid when he was a piston also

they're all limited

Stauskas -- interesting fact I played PIG against Stauskas at the Mall. He's a nice guy, beat me on 3 shots after he complimented my shot, he was missing a lot but I think he stepped his game up against me. Anyways, he does not have a hard body. He's really thin. And as good a guy as he is, I think he's got something going on mentally. Maybe Cousins did that to him, but he doesn't play with attitude. You can have him.

Korkmaz -- Brown just said he's a year away. He would be a nice piece off the bench and is more than a 3 and D guy. He's actually a fan favorite in Philly based on a local scrimmage. I don't think he's available. His body also REALLY needs to mature, nice height and length but just no muscle mass. Dude needs to pound cheesesteaks, of chicken breast of course.

Anderson - poor man is limited. Actually got rid of some skill to focus on being a 3 and D guy. He's a great teammate, but is inconsistent with his shot. Its nice when it does go in. His D is average at best. He has nice size but don't be deceived, he's totally an off the bench guy. What would you give up for him? The Sixers woudln't just give away great culture guys, thats his best asset.

Ilyasova is nice, Hezonja is intruiging but a major reach, he's a chucker that doesn't do mcuh else and unless you are a Jamaal Crawford and Nick Young type, no. He needs to go to San Antonio or something and get raised right.

For the Spurs, I wouldn't

For the Spurs, I wouldn't want to see them make any major moves at this point, but maybe ...

Richaun Holmes?

Jerami Grant?

Quincy Acy?

Basically, although Pau Gasol has looked like his old self the last few games, I fear he is unplayable in a series against the Warriors. We could maybe use another small-ball big who can defend multiple positions and shoot just well enough to keep defenses honest.

Richuan unavailable

I think Brown loves him and he's very valuable. Great on pick and roll with Simmons. I hope Philly keeps him but he's going to get a raise. Holmes ended up better than Noel and Okafor both. The trio of Johnson Holmes and Embiid is really good. So yeah nah, I think Danny Green is a really nice fit for us, but I still wouldn't do that trade.

I woudln't do Holmes for Danny Green, thats what I think of Holmes.

well I was thinking Davis

well I was thinking Davis Bertans and a 2nd rounder for Holmes, so I guess as the representatives of Philly and San Antonio, we have reached an impasse on this trade.

I hope Holmes carves out a longerm niche on the Sixers.

Toronto Raptors

I think the Nuggets could be a good trade partner for Toronto. Jamal Murray, Will Barton, Wilson Chandler and Juan Hernangomez are all players I could see fit well with our team. I wonder how many of those players you could get back if you offered Kyle Lowry, it would have to be based with Murray and Barton then see if you could get Hernangomez and or Chandler as well depending on how bad the Nuggs need pointgaurd and how they value Lowry. Masai Ujiri also used to be the GM for the Nuggets and has a great relationship with Mr. Walmart Josh Kroenke Nuggs president.

Indiana Pacers - Youth at

Indiana Pacers

- Youth at point guard and wing positions.
- High draft picks.

I don't think Indiana will be a playoff team, but the future is bright with Oladipo, Sabonis & Turner as a potential 3 headed monster in a couple of years so high picks and depth sound good. to pair with a 20,21 & 25 year all still improving.
(I belief Oladipo and Sabonis have legit All-Star potential and Turner all-defensive team potential)

Jazz: Nikola Mirotic

Jazz: Nikola Mirotic. They need a scorer and a 3-point shooter next to Gobert. I know he's not a consistent scorer but that will come with time, a better situation, and just practice. I'd be willing to give up Hood, and Burks to get him. Burks is included just to match salaries and the Bulls can continue shopping if they wish or they can buy out his contract. Mirotic would have to give his consent in order for this trade to work but I don't see why he wouldn't.

George Hill - Dearron Fox

George Hill - Dearron Fox needs to start and they need to give him PT. Ideal fits when Hill is able to be traded. (Clippers, Spurs, and Cavs)

Zack Randolph- much like George Hill. Just let the Younger guys play. Espcially when Giles gets back. ( TrailBlazers, Celtics, Wizards)

Mario Henzojnia- He is rotting on the bench now and never could fully/had a chance to improve on the Magic due to their coaching staff and roster ( Knicks, Spurs, Hawks)

Jahlil Okafor- Just trade him already ( Hawks, Celtics, Bulls)

Tyson Chandler- The suns much like the kings just need to play younger players ( Celtics, Thunder, Spurs)

The Kings need to keep their

The Kings need to keep their veterans George Hill and Zach Randolph. The young gets plenty of run plus De'Arron Fox finished the game last night and hit the game winner. There is no good reason to trade them right now. If the vets get disgruntled by the young guys eating up their minutes as the season goes on then they should consider dealing them.

For the Grizz, there are some

For the Grizz, there are some guys I would look at, but I doubt I would give up much... if we could get Okafor relatively cheaply I would do it -- I would do Ivan Rabb, Deyonta Davis, and a 2nd rounder. That's about it. If Philly could get Jarell Martin and either Rabb or Deyonta Davis (plus a 2nd rounder) they should do it.

Philly needs to move on. Get a guy on a contract, some 2nd rounders for flexibility, and just get him off your bench, and off your books.

The Kings have an insanely

The Kings have an insanely young core 5 freshmen ( okay Bogdanovic is an established European guy but he is still an NBA freshman) and 4 guys in their 2nd year so they needed some experience alongside these guys. There may have been a issue with giving Hill a 3 year deal but if that was what he wanted and they needed a good veteran in, they probably felt they wanted to do the deal. Plus Hill at 31 probably knew it was going to be his last really good NBA deal.

Carter turns 41 early next year and it may well be his last year, so having Hill for 3 years who is likely considered a good presence being a former Spurs and Pacers guy in the locker room was probably what the young Kings roster needed. Hill's contract declines by $1 million each year so it's not a cap killer and 2nd deals for the young core won't kick in during that time.

The Kings have been toying with their starting line up in early season but there are a lot of minutes in the backcourt and even at SF for Dave Joerger to share around.

Boston I think will use their player exception on a big - Faried is a good call and if Denver would be willing to part with him they would save good cap space. I don't know what else Boston would send back - possibly Baynes or Morris if they would want to hold onto Yabusele or even a first rounder of their own.

Dedmon is also a good call for Boston - the Hawks are in rebuild so may feel if Boston dangled a first rounder that trading someone they signed as an FA gives them a longer term potential return and draft options.
