NBA Teams That Made Trades Still Don’t Matchup To Cleveland And Golden State

via USA Today Sports

NBA teams that made trades to boost their chances of making a deep playoff run still don’t matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.

 

Here are some of the playoff teams that made moves prior to the deadline according to FanRag Sports

 

  • Kings trade DeMarcus Cousins, Omri Casspi to Pelicans for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, top-three protected 2017 first-round pick, 2017 second-round pick.
  • Lakers trade Lou Williams to Rockets for Corey Brewer, 2017 first-round pick.
  • Nets trade Bojan Bogdanovic, Chris McCullough to Wizards for Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton, lottery protected 2017 first-round pick.
  • Suns trade P.J. Tucker to Raptors for Jared Sullinger, two future second-round picks (2017, 2018).
  • Bulls trade Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott, 2018 second-round pick to Thunder for Cameron Payne, Joffrey Lauvergne, Anthony Morrow.

 

Based on these trades, none of them aren’t good enough. In the Western Conference, the New Orleans Pelicans got better adding Cousins to be this era’s “Twin Towers.” But in today’s game it will hurt their transition game due to how slow they are as a team, especially to the Warriors. Houston Rockets now have the best bench in the league adding Lou Williams, who’s an explosive scorer capable of being a game changer at any given moment. Still don’t have the defense to stop the Warriors since they lead the league in assists and field goal percentage.

 

The Warriors talent far outweighs everyone in the Western Conference, including the Oklahoma City Thunder who gotten tougher with Gibson and McDermott. They are trying to stay healthy heading into the playoffs and don’t mind taking losses as long as they are the first seed. But these teams know it ain’t good enough to beat them 4 out of 7 times in a playoff series.

 

In the Eastern Conference, it’s not like the Cleveland Cavaliers are worried about other teams improving. The Washington Wizards may have a better bench and the Toronto Raptors look to have a much-improved starting lineup, but it’s not enough.

 

Both teams lose to the Cavaliers in a close game most of the time. Wizards have the backcourt but not a good frontcourt. Raptors are the opposite and still can’t find a way to beat the Cavaliers. The trio of Lebron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love have developed chemistry and continuity. No one else in the East didn’t improve, including the Boston Celtics who had a chance to do something special this season.

 

Trades in the NBA are overrated compared to other sports. Sometimes it may make or break a contender’s chance of being a championship team. But in this case, the teams simply don’t matchup with the heavyweights of the NBA.
