Just tossing around an idea/question.
But (Assuming player and team agree)
Couldn't something like Hayward and Rozier signed for a 1 year 20 mill dollar contract work in a deal for Beal and Mahinmi? (of course Boston would add some sort of pick in here)
Outgoing salary for Boston would be 51 million, incoming would be 41 million, and according to ESPN's trade checker those numbers make a legal trade.
I mean you, in this instance, would have the debate of if Hayward and 1 year of Rozier is worth Beal. I would argue yes as it gives them a pg for a year to replace the injured wall, Bet on Haywards recovery (they probably make playoffs in the East), and lines up massive expiring s over the next few seasons allowing for a bit of a rebuild on the fly.
but on to my thought of a deal to create my ideal team for next season.
NOP gets Mahinmi, Tatum, Smart, Memphis pick, Clipper pick, Boston 2021 first pick
gives: Davis, Moore. NOP adds a fat expiring deal they can move at deadline, adds a high value pick, and another pick this year as well as a future pick on top of an ALL NBA defensive SG/PG and a superstar potential in Tatum. Wing positions are set for a long time for them.
Washington gets Hayward, Sacramento pick, 2019 Boston second.
Gives, Beal, Mahinmi
Washington immediately saves 10 million in payroll. Bets on Haywards return to form and goes on a little mini tank next season until Wall comes back. Sacramento pick adds them another nice young cost controlled player this season.
Boston trades: Tatum, Smart, Hayward, all picks but Bostons own this year.
gets< Davis, Beal, Moore
This is why Boston does it.
