Why Clippers do this:

Pretty obvious, they don't have many picks and Demar doesn't cost too many. You cant tell me Kawhi, PG, and Demar wouldn't be an insane trio. They accept in a heartbeat.

Why Knicks do this:

To contend, Zach Lavine would be perfect. Brunson, Randle, and Lavine is also a great trio and getting that would be great for the Knicks. 3 First round picks is a lot to move RJ Barret but I still think they would like this.

Why Bulls do this:

Its time for them to blow it up. You are the 10th seed with not much potential for a chip anytime soon so not a need to really think twice about trading LaVine and Demar. 5 first round picks and good players is a solid trade for a soon expiring old player and a big-contract without much purpose on your team.
