WHY ROCKETS AND GRIZZLIES DO IT:
A promising young player / a first for House and Slowmo are a good return.
WHY PELICANS DO IT:
For 2 (on paper) late firsts and Kira + filler, they get a way better player than Devonte. CJ is not a real PG, but neither is Devonte. For this price they won't get a better player. Culver and DJ are just there so they can have somebody to replace Sato and Kira with. Both can be cut this summer.
Starting 5: CJ, NAW, Ingram, Zion, Vala. If even now they can't get a 8-9 seed, just bring back the Sonics!
WHY BLAZERS DO IT:
Starting 5: Dame, Powell, RoCo, Slowmo, Nurk
Second Unit: Devonte, Simons, House, Nance, Zeller
Third Unit: DSJ, Elleby, Snell, Little, Brown
They now have a pretty decent rotation, not sure this can reach the WCF but with a bit of luck (like Suns...) they for sure can get to the 2nd round. The current team is not deep enough and as we could (and can) see the triple guard line up doesn't work.
They DON'T pay luxury anymore, they have now 15 guys on the roster insted of 13 and they now also have a new first.
