I think this might be the best chance for them to clear up all their long term 'bad' contracts without giving out a frp. THJ, Bertans, i rlly don't want them to keep paying these guys. Mavs are teams trying to contend, those cap can be used on other better players. They lost Brunson in FA, which is a big loss. They can use another ball handler. Westbrook can't shoot, but im sure that his playmaking and defense will still be kinda valuable for a team. If he rlly isn't working out, just shut him down.
The main goal for this move here for the Mavs is to clear up the cap, and wait till next season where they can spend more money in FA market. I just believe that the Mavs want to use their frps in trades for all stars, or close to all stars players, not for clearing up the contract, so this is probably their only chance to do it without giving frps.
Sending Russ away must consist of a frp, cus they're also getting great valued players. Here they can hv Bojan who can provide solid shooting. Also, if THJ came back healthy, he can provide solid scoring also at the SG spot. He will make this Lakers team super scary if he's healthy and playing like 2021 THJ. For Hart, oh the good old days. I think he will provide Lakers another wing, the best rebounding guard of all time (jk). He plays hard every night, i think he will significantly help out
I think this is great return for them, they can use all these 3 players in their rotation, on solid mins
They're basically blowing up now. I don't rlly know which team will give the Jazz a frp for Bojan, but eating Bertans also must get them one. And as everyone know, 2027 Lakers pick gonna be super valuable. Their future is unclear, no significantly good young guys. That can be like a 6th pick and Jazz get a steal on that.
I throw them in cus i wanna move Powell to somewhere. But why i think they can move Hart is that, when you look at the defending wing spot, you alrdy got GP2 who should play 25+ mins every night, Winslow, Little, and even Sharpe who should get much mins. If Hart's also there, maybe Winslow or Little can't even play. And looking at the Blazers squad, they're missing a backup C, so i think moving Hart for Powell and 3 srps is reasonable
