    It’s all based on what you can get. I’m not giving up the BKN for DeAndre, that’s for sure. I don’t want IT and I don’t want DeAndre at what those guys are going to cost next year. Would I trade the BKN pick/IT/TT for Kemba and Dwight? I probably would. We’d have them through next season too.

    Cavs need to trade for Dinwiddie 3 hours ago.

    Would do we think about this one if Lebron signs a 3-4 year extension?

    TT + Brooklyn pick for Steven Adams

    The Cavs greatest problem is the Center position. We would Exchange TT's average contract/play for one of the best hustle centers in the league. I like the Brooklyn pick, but if LeBron stays I don't see how a top-talent rookie would remotely impact the Cavs more than Adams;

    It would also makes sense for OKC if George leaves to LA, without him they won't go anywhere in the PlayOffs but are too good to get a decent pick. It's probably their only option to inject new talent in the roster

    That wouldn't interest OKC.

    Doesn't look like it but Adams is just 24.

    The draft is loaded, so why wouldn't they be interested?

    Because they want to compete right now and Adams is making a big difference. They'll be a force as long as Westbrook is good so even if PG leaves, which seems unlikely, Westbrook and Adams with good role players will keep them in race.

    Adams is still very young and already proven. A genuine good guy too. I don't think they are going to gamble on that.

    Man, Adams would be the perfect center for this team as currently constructed. OKC’s salary cap situation is going to be bonkers soon, if they PG13 re-ups with them and Melo opts in, which he is expected to do. It would take one heck of an offer for them to even consider trading Adams

    Did they? Adams and Lamb for the #1 overall pick? Thats the first I heard that. Would have been very controversial at the time depending on who OKC took

    It was supposedly on draft night of 2013. Adams(also in that draft class) was considered way more of a project at that time and supposedly OKC wanted to draft Oladipo as the Harden replacement

    Definitely worked out in OKC’s favor.
