^^Furthermore in addition to the trade i suggested above I'd trade Gallinari for Carmelo. I'd do this for two reasons, first Carmelo could mentor Tobias Harris and potentially teach him some offensive moves to help develop his game further the second reason is get Carmelo Expiring contract to free up money for 2019.

God, you were making such sense until you mentioned bringing Carmelo in. From what I've seen, all he brings to a team is disharmony and underachievement.

i only mentioned Carmelo more so for financial reasons, so your telling me if you had the chance to get an extra 20 million free cap next year to pursue kwahi Leonard in free agency you wouldn't. In regards to teaching Tobias some moves, he taught Blake his step black. I'm just saying Gallo is probably gonna get hurt again next year, and not many teams are gonna want his contract. At least in this case we get his contract off the books, let Melo walk in the summer and use the extra cap space to build this team.

Another scenario of mine that i would love, is getting Aaron Gordon in a S&t for Gallo and a pick. Aaron Gordon has the potential to be Shawn Marion 2.0 his athleticism & defensive potential are obvious. And with his developing 3 pointer that improved this season he has the potential to being something special a combo stretch forward, with solid rebounding and defensive capabilities could pair up nice with the tobias harris at the small forward position especially in a the era where teams are running more spread offense.

Didn't the Magic already have the Aaron Gordon / Tobias Harris problem though? I don't mind Gordon, but I don't know about him and Harris together.

I Don't think it will be much of an issue having them play together seeing that they both can play either forward positions, From what I remember Tobias took Gordon under his wing as a rookie. But judging their games, it looks like Gordon looks more comfortable at the power forward position, even with his improved range. Tobias Harris and Aaron Gordon could just how Tobias and Gallinari works its just the Harris/Gordon Dynamic would be younger and have more defensive and explosive potential. Plus Gordon is only 22, he's very young and can grow with this team.

In regards to the Magic, they were impatient and had the wrong coach for that team otherwise, they'd still have Payton, Oladipo, Harris, Gordon, Vucevic, with other young piece filling out that team. Imagine if Brad Stevens had that team, They would have been in the playoffs. Sometimes the system and Coaching can have a major factor in a team growth.

With the right coach that magic team would have been insane!

It was nice seeing Gordon increase his range, makes him much more attractive of an acquisition but I still would be a little concerned about him only because he’s not a great rebounder as well as Tobias not being a very strong rebounder. They only played together for a season and a half so you can really judge that. I wish things with Gallo could work but he can’t stay healthy, can’t expect anything else from him.

well gordon averaged 8 rebounds per game this , that is not bad seeing that is he is a Tweener, plus with today style of play a lot of rebounds are from long ball, plus the team can rebound collectively.

Let the Trade season begin!!! We need to trade for a more serviceable center without jeppordizing our free agency this summer. I think that's our weakest position. We're getting killed in rim protection and rebounds when Trez is not in.

Players the Clippers should keep this season, SGA, Trez, Harris, Robinson, LouWill, TyWallace, Motley. Players I think they should try and trade Bradley, Gortat, Milos, Sindarius (I like him but if he's not going to be used We need pieces)

Enus Kanter might be needing a new team soon. I think he'd fit in good with us

If we were not going after big time FA this upcoming off season, our teams would actually have a lot of trade assets of expiring contract. I don’t think we’ll ship any our expiring contracts out to preserve our flexibility over the summer.

He’s a definite upgrade over Gortat but I wouldn’t gamble future flexibility for Kanter

NVM I think he also has an expiring contract.

Up to Jerry if he can pull off Gortat or Bradley for Kanter without giving up picks.

Kanter would be great for us offensively. He may be one of the worst defensive big men, but he's still a lot better than whatever we have now.

We need a serviceable center who is somewhere in the 12-15 million range. Kanter won't be making $18 million. If we can get him in that range, I think he would be a good fit. Salaries are starting to settle so the FO needs to be prudent in choosing how much we want to invest in a center.

Would you guys do a Gallo Kanter swap to shed salary and get rid of an injury prone player or have you loved him too much this year to let him go?

Don't think we should trade Gallo until we see what happens in this years FA. Assuming we strike out on both Kawhi and Durant, and we didn't have Gallo, we would be a bottom 5 team next year.

No way since we’re still battling for a playoff spot. If the team/FO just want to throw in the towel and give up a then yes

You shed salary when it is a bad player, Gallo is a very good player. New York would need to be giving actual assets for such a move. I know the whole trying to sign max guys and all, but well managed teams aren't the types of teams that make trades like this. You have to maximize all assets that you have.

Agree. If Butler and Harris think they’re max players then Gallo should be in that conversation. None are max players but I’d rather have Gallo than Harris or Butler. Gallo is better then any of us likely imagined.

With Gallo it’s not a matter of talen, we were all excited when we signed him, but his injury history. Gallo won’t get a max contract unless he plays 75+ games this year and next year. His health is just too much of a liability

I recently read the Grizzlies are exploring trades for Marc Gasol. Not sure about his contract terms but I think he would definitely make us a better team and expand the floor for us. Having a center that can shoot and rebound would make us so much better. I know we’re most likely staying put to have flexibility but Marc is a baller.

I’d pass. He has a player option after this season which means he could opt out. Plus they won’t have room for the two max players for next if he opts in. Unless you trade him straight up for Gallo, that could be a possibility.

We could trade Gallo and Bradley for Gasol, Jamychal Green (expiring) and a filler.

I see that the hawks are putting Bazemore and Dedmon up for trade bait early before the deadline. They might take a swap of Bradley/Gortat for Bazemore/Dedmon what’s your thought on something like that.

I think there's no way the Front office targets Bazemore because he has a 19m player option for next year. I doubt he would get 80 percent of that in the market. Dedmon i would 100 percent try to target.

Milos needs to get traded for some Center help! Also any chance Anthony Bennett makes the roster next year? I hope so he's been playing pretty good in the G-League.

I personally would go for Marc Gasol or Robin Lopez. Possibly Trevor Ariza. Yes most of you will be saying why that’s stupid, but I see it as a security blanket for next year and us signing Kawhi, Durant or both. Players like Gasol, Lopez, and Ariza would be veterans who would buy into a team with stars like Kawhi, etc. This assuming we don’t lose much like Milos, Gortat, Bradley, Scott, and some late draft picks.

Would love to have Marc come to this team. Imagine Gasol, Tobias, and Galo, that’s a pretty tall and lengthy front court. I think Memphis wants young talent and draft picks.

Maybe Kanter might be an easier pick up. A trade around Gortat and perhaps Bradley might help the knicks to lose more games in preparation for the draft.

Agreed Gasol would be a great pick up but I think we’d have to trade Gallo or Tobias to get him, so don’t think the 3 would ever play together.

Manger is one of those guys who looks good on paper but I don’t think he helps good teams. He really struggles on defense and his rebounding although good isn’t always based on team fundamentals. Gasol would be a perfect addition to this team with his excellent PnR skills and passing and shooting ability.

Lets trade for Thor..

Or the center from orlando.

or another young player..

we don't need (old man) gasol.

Gallo has one year left.. harris, beverly, gortat.. are expiring contracts this year.

I can feel a great trade coming for us..

Go Jerry Go!!!

I don’t know if you meant Thon, but he is horrible.

Anthony Davis just requested a trade. Can we put together a package attractive enough for him? I don’t think we have the assets but that would be awesome

The tough part with Gasol is flexibility. He's 34 and has a player option for $25.5 million next season. Clippers can't be a player in the free agent market with that contract and he's not good or young enough to hamper your flexibility for him. If we needed him to go from good to contender, different story.

Still scratching my head as to why Dj signed a one year deal at 30 years old. After his uninspired play this year. He def ain't getting a max contract, and he will be 31.
