Gain a bunch of cap and get their 2022 2nd round pick back. Ive talked to death about why i think Love on the Rockets could be a game changer - not on the court but for the culture of the game.
PG gets another running mate while Kawhi is out. It costs Bledsoe - who Wall is a clear upgrade over. Serg - Who wont start the season, and with Zubac and Hartenstein, may be a calculated sacrifice for LA. Kennard - Who didnt find minutes in last years playoffs.
By getting off Kennards contract too, the hope is that Wall finds a home in LA, turns down his last year and signs a similar contract to CP3 in Pheonix.
They get their guy AND move on from Love. Losing Sexton hurts. But there was always a double up in talent between him and Garland anyway. They get a replacement for Rubio for more than just 1 year and a guy who brings exactly what the Cavs need. Shooting. You hope that Kennard improves all around moving forward, because his contract, although long, is really good IF he hits on half of his potential.
Oh boy. It may not be what they want, but. They get a young 1 guard with huge potential. A vet SG who, yes, has had injury issues the last couple years, but would be PERFECT alongside Embiid. A wing player who can come off the bench and a big who can play either position - if they keep him. Otherwise they waive Serg to save some $.
