NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1372

Looks like Reggie Jackson goes to Detroit. 3 team deal. Looks like Enes Kanter is headed to OKC. Wonder who the 3rd team is?

Edit:

Singler goes to OKC.

Kanter's move to OKC is part of a three-team deal with the Pistons -- Kendrick Perkins goes to Utah, Reggie Jackson goes to Detroit, Kyle Singler goes to Oklahoma City, and more pieces could move as details emerge.

Ah holy shit. I'm really happy to be proven instantaneously wrong

DJ Augustine also going to OKC

Brandon Knight to the Suns, WTF? Isiah Thomas to 76ers.

Holy shit, so many things just happened in the last 2 minutes...

ESPN sources: Brandon Knight to Phoenix. MCW and Tyler Ennis to Milwaukee. Isaiah Thomas and picks to Philadelphia

— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) 

February 19, 2015

Things are getting weird.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com is hearing that a three-team trade has been struck between the Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers. Michael Carter-Williams and Tyler Ennis are headed to Milwaukee, Brandon Knight is going to Phoenix and Isaiah Thomas will be joining Sam Hinkie in Philadelphia.

Initial reaction: The Sixers did well, the Bucks' playoff hopes are going to be tested without Knight and the Suns still heart point guards.

Suns get two first round picks and Danny Granger in trade of Goran Dragic.

— John Gambadoro (@Gambo987)

John Gambadoro of 98.7 KTAR says the Miami Heat will be sending the Phoenix Suns Danny Granger and two first-round picks in the Goran Dragic trade.

Two first-round picks is still a solid haul for the Suns, and the Heat did well by not blowing up their entire roster for a point guard who could leave this summer.

Norris Cole to New Orleans for John Salmons

The Bucks acquired Miles Plumlee

Isaiah Thomas has been sent to the Boston Celtics as part of a four-team deal.
Thomas could be looking at the starting point guard spot in Boston, and he's likely going to hurt the value of Marcus Smart. He'll be entering a crowded rotation in, with Evan Turner and Smart vying for minutes, but he should be able to sustain value in standard leagues as a member of the Celtics.

Marcus Thornton is going to Phoenix.

Hearing Tayshaun Prince to Detroit for Jerebko and Datome

— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) 

February 19, 2015

Another reunion is in the works, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein. Tayshaun Prince looks like he will be rejoining the Detroit Pistons, who will be sending the Boston Celtics Gigi Datome and Jonas Jerebko.

Stan Van Gundy is working it in Detroit right now.

So we got Dragic, Dwyane Wade's ghost, Deng, Bosh and Whiteside as the starting 5. Not ridiculous, but respectable, and good enough for a bottom playoff seed. Although the bench is still barren

Jesus, SVG just went HAM today...

 

Also...

The Sixers also get Lakers' top-five protected pick from Phoenix in massive deal sending Michael Carter-Williams to Milwaukee, source says.

— Ken Berger (@KBergCBS) 

February 19, 2015

Other aspects of the Phoenix Suns' trade-deadline exploits are still coming down, but CBS Sports' Ken Berger confirms that the Philadelphia 76ers will be receiving the Los Angeles Lakers' top-five protected pick (via Phoenix).

Moving that pick says a lot about the Suns' thinking. They clearly believe the Lakers will keep that selection this season, and that they'll be too good to reap the benefits of the 2016 first-rounder it would become.

 

This might come back to bite Phoenix in the ass.

I did not realize Perkins and LeBron were in the same draft.

That's impossible. That guy looks 45.

OKC tho damn. They got kanter, singler, and Augustin for jackson and Perkins. Basically got two solid bench players and a starting center.

Can't believe rockets got KJ for Isaiah Canaan plus a second. Philly selling for dimes on the dollar but I guess they weren't keeping him after this year

So glad Blazers got afflalo instead of chandler

I don't understand why Pistons traded for jackson or why Suns went for brandon knight. But they did get a bunch of draft picks

I also don't get why Bucks traded brandon knight for mcw. I guess he fits their defense much better and are hoping to improve his shot but brandon knight is guaranteed all star for years to come

Seriously, what the fuck are the Jazz doing? They gave up Enes Kanter for...Kendrick Perkins' expiring deal???
