NBA trade grades: What the biggest deadline deals mean

What league insiders say these teams should do at the trade deadline
Leonard, whom the NBA fined $50,000 for an anti-Semitic slur last week, had to waive the no-trade clause on his two-year contract, which included a team option for 2021-22 — that will be declined as part of a procedural matter in completing the deal.

Leonard, who had season-ending shoulder surgery in February, was agreeable to facilitate the deal as a gesture of good faith to the Heat organization, where he has played since arriving in a trade from Portland in 2019.

The key to the deal for Oklahoma City was stockpiling another future draft pick. Oklahoma City traded for another 2027 second-round pick last week in a deal with Detroit. Oklahoma City has accumulated 17 first-round picks and 15 second-round picks through the 2027 draft. The expectation is that Oklahoma City will keep Leonard under contract through the March 25 trade deadline in case there’s opportunity to use his contract in another transaction, sources said.

Since his comments on March 8, Leonard has been working with the Jewish community in South Florida, sources said. He will continue rehabilitating his shoulder and training in the area.

Oklahoma City acquired Ariza as part of a three-team offseason deal with Detroit and Dallas. In a single week, Ariza was traded from Portland to Houston to Detroit to Oklahoma City.

Ariza is on a $12.8 million expiring contract.

After starting the season with Sacramento a year ago, Ariza was traded to the Trail Blazers, where he averaged 11 points and 4.8 rebounds in 21 starts. Ariza has averaged 10.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists for his career in 16 seasons.

CORAL SPRINGS — No one had to tell Billy Thompson how long it had been since he became the first Miami Heat player in franchise history.

His knees, his hips, his back and the extra pounds added over the years told him as he descended from less lofty heights Stitched Miami Heat Jerseys than previously with his dunk in his opening game at the 2018 National Masters Championship Basketball Tournament.

It was as if you could see all 30 years Cheap Billy Thompson Jersey in the grimace and trot back to the defensive end.

And still, three decades after being added by the Heat in the 1988 expansion draft, there also was a smile, a lifelong love affair with the game still there after all these years.

It also was exactly what he said Cheap Glen Rice Jersey moments before, in a pregame interview, that he wouldn’t do.

“I’m just going to have fun,” he said. “I’m not going to do any dunks. I still can now and then when I’m feeling good.”

Turning 55 in December, Thompson, pregame chaplain for the Heat as well as senior pastor at Jesus People Proclaim International Cheap Keith Askins Jersey Church in Deerfield Beach, is spending the week playing for the Explosion entry in the event at the Coral Springs Gymnasium.

The hard part is wrapping his head around how long it had been since he became the first player to join the Heat from that June 23, 1988 expansion draft.

Original Heat forward Billiy Thompson dunks in Masters 55 tournament.

“I can’t believe it,” he said. “I mean, 30 great years. And time flies. Thirty years? It’s hard to count that many numbers in professional basketball and to know that I was the first player picked for that team. Man, it’s something.”

The difference now is Thompson no longer pushes himself to run back on offense and the dunking — save for that one Cheap Meyers Leonard Jersey moment that surprised even himself — has given way to layups delivered with two hands when jumping off both legs.

And that’s when the contractors, accountants, lawyers, salesmen and retirees aren’t reaching in to strip that ball away.

“I don’t play much at all,” he said. “I look at it a lot. I’m watching the playoffs. I’m actually glad the Heat did well. The championship for them was to make it in the playoffs, and now they’re building and keep going from there.”

This week is the exception, the opportunity to run up and down in the event that last year featured former Louisville coach Rick Pitino in a playing role.

Mostly, Thompson takes in the game as a fan, whether it is after leading pregame chapel at AmericanAirlines Arena or viewing from his Boca Raton home.

“I’m watching all the games,” he said. “When I go to the Heat games, I’m like cringing at certain plays. And sometimes I’m like, ‘I want to get out there. I want to get out there.’ So you never lose it.

“I’m out here because I love the game. I want to just have some fun. A lot of guys here I know, great guys that love the game like I do.”

There had been thoughts of staying with the game in some form, having won NBA championships in 1987 and ’88 under then Los Angeles Lakers coach Pat Riley, who now oversees the Heat.

“Ministry,” he said. “To me, I made that commitment to the Lord to do pastoring. And I felt if it was something locally, I could do something. But nothing opened up then. But even now, I’m looking to go to be an encourager to those young players.”

To say the look of the game at the Master Championship is old school would be an understatement. But Thompson said not to count him among those who insist the game was better in his day.

“It was better in our day in the sense of the physicality,” he said. “They let us play hard. That’s the game on the street. But these guys, they have some talent, the 3-point shooting, the athletic ability is off the chain, especially with the big men shooting the threes, driving. We didn’t see a lot of that. So I enjoy watching those guys do what they do.”

It is why it meant being away from his team for Thursday’s game.

do they want to move any Maurice Harkless Jersey of those four players

Last Wednesday Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich said the Spurs and LaMarcus Aldridge have mutually agreed to part ways. After Popovich’s remarks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reported the Spurs are trying to work on Cheap Kelly Olynyk Jersey a trade for Aldridge instead of having to buyout his deal.

Two teams that have had their named mentioned in reports for Aldridge are the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. Let’s look at each rumor.

The Miami Heat

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald Thursday, the Heat have explored interest in a trade for Aldridge, according to a league source.

Then, on Sunday, Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.com reported this (H/T HoopsRumors.com):

Miami has also dangled veterans Avery Bradley, Maurice Harkless and Meyers Leonard to match salaries as part of a trade package for San Antonio’s LaMarcus Aldridge, league sources told HoopsHype. The Heat would also Cheap Meyers Leonard Jersey have to add another minimum contract such as either Chris Silva or KZ Okpala and draft pick compensation to make a trade worthwhile for San Antonio.

Bobby Marks of ESPN.com created a video Thursday of possible Aldridge trade scenarios and the challenge of moving his $24 million salary.

As Marks said, any team above the cap trading for Aldridge would have to send back at minimum, $19 million in salary. There are three Cheap Chris Silva Jersey hurdles to keep an eye on for an Aldridge trade from the Spurs’ standpoint.

San Antonio is trying to stay under the luxury tax.
The Spurs only have one vacant roster spot.
How much of the Spurs’ 2021 cap space are they willing to move into if they have to take back a player(s) who is not on an expiring contract this season.
Creating an Aldridge to Miami trade is Cheap KZ Okpala Jersey quite difficult unless a third team is brought in because of San Antonio’s limited roster space.

One example Marks brought up was Aldridge for Kelly Olynyk ($12.5 million), Avery Bradley ($5.6 million), and Maurice Harkless ($3.6 million). While Cheap Avery Bradley Jersey this trade would work since all three players contracts add up to $21.7 million, San Antonio would have to waive or trade a player to make the 3-for-1 player swap work.

As Marks and Jackson discussed, one key question the Heat would face is if they even want to move on from Olynyk for Cheap Maurice Harkless Jersey Aldridge? Jackson also reported the Heat actually have more interest in Spurs forward Rudy Gay than Aldridge.

As for the trade scenario Scotto reported, it would take Bradley, Harkless, Leonard, and one extra player to make this move happen.

A 4-for-1 swap would be complicated because the Spurs would either have to get a 3rd team involved to send two players to, or San Antonio would have to waive two players on their roster. Plus, this is probably a no from the Spurs because Leonard would be involved, who is currently suspended by the Heat for anti-semitic remarks he made during the All-Star break.

The Boston Celtics

Scotto also reported this Sunday with regards to the Celtics:

Some executives around the league who spoke with HoopsHype believe the Boston Celtics could join the mix to acquire Aldridge Wholesale Miami Heat Jerseys using their $28.5 million trade exception despite Danny Ainge recently suggesting the team will most likely use the exception during the offseason.

One key difference between this and the Heat report is that the Celtics currently aren’t exploring interest in Aldridge, instead, other teams think the Celtics will explore interest in Aldridge in the near future.

The key factor to keep in mind is that Boston can’t cross the $138.9 hard cap line in any transaction. So for instance, an Aldridge for any two of the following players from Boston would work: Jeff Teague, Javonte Green, Semi Ojeleye, Carsen Edwards.

While this could work, any such deal would put the Celtics in the luxury tax. The two questions for Boston would be, 1) do they want to move any of those four players for Aldridge, and 2) are they willing to go into the tax for Aldridge, while still having Tristan Thompson, Daniel Theis, and Robert Williams on the roster as bigs?

The Celtics could stay under the tax if they made an Aldridge for Thompson swap, but that would mean they’d be willing to move Thompson and the Spurs would have to be willing to take on the second year of Thompson’s deal into next season.

With the NBA trade deadline now 11 days away on March 25, more rumors of teams with interest in Aldridge or other Spurs players could be made public in the coming days.
