I think the Cavs should move Allen this summer. Mobley is best at center and the reality is, whatever the Cavs peak is will be dependent on Mobley.  Maximize Mobley so you trade Allen.
2023 Historical Draft - Brooklyn Nets - 9th pick

Bigs - Pau, Amar'e, Issel, McGinnis, Roundfield
Wings - Dantley, Bowen, J. Jackson
Guards - Cheeks, Petrovic, Buse, Rip

There are some CP3 for PG13 rumours.

I presume GSW would have to add an awful lot to make the deal interesting for LAC. Say Kuminga and multiple draft picks. Maybe Klay in a sign and trade.

Clippers

G: CP3, Westbrook
G: Harden, N Powell
F: T Mann, Kuminga
F: Kawhi
C: Zubac

A reunion of CP3 and Harden. Both older and mellower. It would turn the team more into a 1-2 punch of Harden & Kawhi. Then solid role players around them. Kuminga as a young talent.

It would be a serious talent downgrade but the fit of the players is nice. A real PG to help their offense. More passing. Kuminga and picks as long term assets.

Warriors

G: Steph, G Payton II
G: Podz, Moody
F: P George, Wiggins
F: Draymond
C: T Jackson-Davis, Looney

It would be a major addition for GSW. Move them up from a 40-45 win team to a 50 win team. Probably need to do another move to fix that big man rotation to become a legit title contender again.

Lakers receive Lavine and DeRozan (sign-and-trade 3 years, 90m)

Bulls receive Vanderbilt, Hachimura, Russell, Reeves, and Vincent

I don't know what DeRozan's actually next contract will be, so I guessed what he was worth. If it was a lower value contract, one of Vanderbilt, Vincent, or Hachimura wouldn't be included.

The Lakers then have James, Davis, DeRozan, and Lavine, with Christie, JHS, Hayes, Reddish, and Wood off the bench. This upgrades their talent level to give them another year or two to compete for a championship.

The Bulls get off two big contracts and can piece out the players they don't want to keep long-term for draft picks throughout this season. They move forward with a youth movement.

This is creative, TP. The Lakers seem very reluctant to trade Reeves, though, and would depend on the status of Lavine's health.  Lakers need to do something; running it back, even with a Mazzulla disciple, is not enough.

Thunder get Steph Curry

Warriors get Dort, K Williams, Wallace, Good Jay Williams, Dieng, the entire Thunder draft chest

Thunder move forward with Shai, Curry, Chet, Carusso, and Hartenstein with Joe, Wiggins, bad Jay Williams, and vet mins off the bench.

Warriors get to rebuild around good Jay Williams, Kuminga, Podziemski, Wallace, and Moody.

I wonder if it is time for Giannis to shift over to C.

Milwaukee trade: Brook Lopez & Khris Middleton
to Phoenix for Bradley Beal

Bucks

G: Lillard, D Wright
G: Beal, Pat Bev
F: T Prince, P Connaughton
F: B Portis
C: Giannis

Milwaukee would have a bit of work to do on their bench. They should be able to find a capable backup C for the minimum. A bit harder to find a big forward. I wonder if they could include Josh Okogie in a sign and trade somehow.

Suns

G: G Allen, M Morris
G: D Booker, Damion Lee
F: R O'Neale, R Dunn / N Little
F: Durant, Middleton
C: B Lopez, Nurkic, Mason Plumlee

Not terrible, but I think the Bucks are a second apron team and cannot aggregate salaries.

I do like the idea of moving Giannis over to C a bit more. Portis can handle some starting duties as well.

I also think the Bucks would consider Beal as a similar value (ignoring contracts) to each of Middleton and Lopez. Not both.

Orlando trade Wendell Carter Jr & Cole Anthony to New Orleans for CJ McCollum.

New Orleans get the starting center they desire. Rumour is WCJ and J Allen are their two top targets so they are after WCJ. Orlando gets a 6th man who can put the ball in the bucket. Who can give them a 3rd scorer behind F Wagner & Banchero.

Orlando

G: Suggs, McCollum
G: KCP, G Harris
F: F Wagner
F: Banchero, J Isaac
C: G Bitadze, Mo Wagner

New Orleans

G: D Murray, Alvarado, C Anthony
G: H Jones, J Hawkins
F: B Ingram, Trey Murphy
F: Z Williamson
C: W Carter Jr, Theis

Orlando would need another contract to make the money work. Maybe Jett Howard. Maybe Yves Missi heading the other way. That would work financially. Give ORL a 3rd string center with potential. Give NOP an extra jump-shooting forward.

I like that trade for both teams.

I think starting Beal and Lillard while taking away one of your rim protectors is a recipe for getting absolutely cooked on defense.

This is why I don't get the Lopez rumors. They have Lillard and an old injury plagued Middleton. They can't afford to remove rim protection with the lack of perimeter defense they have out there.
