Bulls - They get one of the best 4s in the league to complete their starting 5. Sabonis is an elite playmaker for his position and in my opinion this gives them the best lineup in the league. The playmaking of this unit is insane; Ball - 5 APG LaVine - 4 APG DeRozan - 4.5 APG Sabonis - 4.5 APG Vucevic 3.5 APG. Keep in mind these numbers are a bit lower than they normally would be because of all these great passers playing on the same team. They already have the top record in the east and with Kyrie not playing this consolidates them as the premier team in the East.

Pacers - This gives them an opportunity to also trade Turner and then possibly trade Brogdon next season. This trade leaves them with a good young core of players and a solid amount of picks. They can aim to tank a little bit this year and hope to get a top pick in this years upcoming draft. However, even if they don’t get a star there they still are set for the future with a young core of White, Duarte, Williams, Jackson, Bitadze and Brissett.
