Great trade by Atlanta. They pick up a first round pick for an injury-prone center and an expiring. Smart move.

Wizards are rebuilding on the fly. Dedmon can back up Gobert and Belli gives much needed shooting.

They still need another piece on the wing.

Moving Gortat was a priority, as he had been feuding with Wall and likely wouldn’t like being benched behind Gobert.

Think it’s a mutually beneficial deal for the two teams involved

Uh-oh. In real life, John Wall is out for 2 months with a knee procedure. Hopefully Gobert can stay healthy, but who is running the offense for Washington now?

Can they still make the playoffs?

I'm a big fan of Frazier, and Mack has actually played better than normal lately. I'd say they're fine to make the playoffs for sure. Other middling teams would have to make moves for me to get nervous if I were them.

My Jazz team is designed to compete as Mitchell grows into his game. We believe in doubling down -- that he and Beal can be one of the most dynamic and athletic guard combos in the game. They can both shoot, drive, defend, and pass. We may have some offensive struggles as they develop their passing more, but long-term, we believe this team can be elite. Ingles distributing abilities will help us as well.

We wanted to fill out our roster with veterans who may have some room to grow. We plan to play two big men together most of the time, but we have a lot of flexibility as well. We think both Dieng and Zeller have room to grow as players, and we think both can stretch the floor out to the 3 point line with more reps. Williams can play some 4 as well -- he is the best 3 point shooter at the 4 this year. Mahinmi and Udoh will be good rotation players for us to defend on the perimeter and inside.

We are also really excited about the long-term potential of Justin Patton and his growth next to two dynamic guards.

Ultimately, it was rebuild time for us. We think we can compete in the playoffs with this team and we are excited to see the development of these players over the next few years. At that point, we will reevaluate how to build around these players.

Charlotte has reached an agreement with Utah on the following trade:

Charlotte is trading Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller to Utah for Ricky Rubio, Thabo Sefolosha, and Tony Bradley. 

http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yb2cuch3

Charlotte makes the move to get under the tax this year, eliminate some long term salary and pick up some much needed defense on its bench with the acquisitions of Rubio and Sefolosha.  Charlotte is also happy to add a recent 1st round draft pick center project for development.  Charlotte has an open roster spot so it doesn't need to waive anyone in the 3 for 2 trade. 

The Hornets want to thank Marvin and Cody for their years of service.  They have been nothing but professional and we wish them well with the Jazz. 

Charlotte is still looking to make moves to continue to reshape its roster.


Was Charlotte actually above the tax before this trade?  I have them at $117.3 million with the tax threshold at $119.2 mil?

ESPN had them above it, but either way I'm fine with the trade as it was more about long term salary reduction than this year.  Besides, the second trade I made put me way under this year anyway.

Atlanta is stockpiling assets. Good for them, but I'm not sure that weak of a team can keep playing in the NBA.

Maybe the commissioner should degrade the Hawks to the D-League for this :).


Edit: The G-league I meant. Strange to see the name G-League.

In the Netherlands we also have G-Leagues in various sports, but there it stands for 'G(ehandicapten)-competitie', which means: competition for the disabled.

Arrogant Dutchman with an absurd sarcastic sense of humor and an extreme world view. Mildly dangerous.

Love the recent trade for Hawks. Schroeder is one of the more overrated players in the NBA -- and quite possibly the NBA's worst defensive point guard, regardless of his measurables and athelticism.

Quintessential type of trade for the Knicks. Although they got out of Noah (a previous mistake), they aren't going anywhere with Schroeder, and now their cupboard of assets is bare.

To be honest, there was never going to be a perfect solution with Noah and the Knicks, and the added fued between him and the coach certainly didn't help. Phil Jackson made a complete mess of the Knicks as is.

Shroder isn't elite but can still contribute.

I asked some of my Knicks friends here in Uni and they were alright with it.

They prefer a certain other PG available in the trade market but he's recently been dealt and is likely staying on that new team long term so..

2018 Mock Trade Deadline (New York Knicks)

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks

If NYK doesn't make the playoffs this year (more a likelihood than a stretch), this trade could be disastrous.  Far too risky for my liking.  Great trade for Atlanta.
