Bulls - What they really need is a great defensive player who can hit open threes to play their PF position. Another player who’s gonna want to take 15+ shots a game doesn’t really help them. RoCo is the perfect fit for them and he can guard both Giannis and KD, currently they don’t have a solution to coming up against either of them in the playoffs which is, let’s face it inevitable. It hurts giving up Pat Williams but he’s injured for the year and isn’t helping them win a ring atm. They also get an improvement at backup center in Zeller.

Blazers - This is the final trade in the rebuild (for now) Williams can lead their defense for years to come and has star potential, he could be like Pascal type player with better defense. RoCo doesn’t help a rebuilding team and they get a good return for him here. This could be their lineup in a few years: PG - Simons SG - Milton SF - Simmons PF - Williams C - Nurkić. That team has a good mixture of youth and experience and could definitely win a chip in the future with just a couple improvements.
