SPURS TRADE: Derrick White, Devin Vassell, Lonnie Walker, 3 FRPs and 3 SRPS and Aminu for Simmons
WHY SPURS SAY YES: For the Spurs, not trading Murray, Primo and Keldon Johnson is a major win. Although they give up a lot, they get Simmons. Popavich is a big fan of his game, the Spurs are interested and Simmons has the potential. They have a great development staff who can help him get his shot, and help him be better. He could also play that point-forward role that would probably be his best fit, Dejounte can also handle the ball a bit. In conclusion, the Spurs want Simmons, and can help him get a better shot & fix his game. They get to keep Primo, Murray and Keldon which would be a priority if possible, so they would win for all of those reasons.
PISTONS TRADE: Jerami Grant for Myles Turner + Kris Dunn + 2 FRPs.
The Pistons trade Grant for Turner + 2 firsts. Turner is a all nba defensive center that has value, he can protect the rim, is a all NBA defensive player, and stretch the floor. To add on, they get 2 firsts. Although it might be a frowned upon move, the Pistons add great value for a player that will leave in a couple years. They also get Kris Dunn, an interesting reclamation project. Although he hasn't been very good, he was a former lottery pick so maybe he can turn it around? DUNN WOULD BE EXTENDED TO A 2 YEAR 15 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT, 3RD YEAR A TO NON-GUARENTEED. THERE WOULD BE A 3RD TEAM TAKING ON MYLES TURER'S.
MOVES PAST THIS: TRADE Myles Turner.
PACER TRADE: Malcolm Brogdon, Myles Turner, Jeramy Lamb for Derrick White, Desmond Bane, Al Founqu Aminu, and Jerami Grant
For the Pacers, they just need some changes after not being a top 8 seed. They fix the Turner/Sabonis logjam that isnt working, both players are more like 5s, therefore aren't used to their best abilities, limiting the team. They trade Brogdon for a great reutrn that can help them get better. In return, they get Jerami Grant, Derrick White, and Desmond Bane. White averaged 15 points per game, and can defend and pass, therefore should have decent trade value. They should be able to get a solid role player and a pick or 2. Bane is a proven 3 & D player. He shot 43 precent from 3, in over 3 attempts, while playing good D and getting 9 efficient points in his rookie season, he was on the all rookie team. Additionally, they get Jerami Grant. Grant can defend and is proven to be able to play with others. Although he probably won't get the over 20 points, he just needed more opportunity to show that he can average better stats then he did. Grant should get 15-20 points per game. Overall, this team has much better fit, shooting and scoring.
