The Pelicans have had a tough season, and need to make moves, or else its possible that Zion Williamson and/or Brandon Ingram will ask out. Regardless if they want to keep their 2 stars, which id think they do they lose value if they ask out, so they need to keep them happy. I think that this offseason plan, if this happens, would benefit them as a team, and make Zion and Ingram more happy. Here is what I'd do.
Resign Lonzo Ball 2 a 4 year 90 million dollar contract
Lonzo is a great playmaker and defender that has had his highest efficiency percentage in his career, in addition to scoring the most this season, and making nearly 38 precent of his 3 point attempts. Lonzo will be a important piece for this team and must get resigned to any semi-reasonable contract, like this is.
Resign Josh Hart to a 3 year 27 million dollar contract
Hart is a great energy player who can shoot and defend and will be a great [iece for the bench for this team moving forward.
Resign James Johnson to a 2 year 9 million dollar contract
he is a solid defender, and someone I'd try to keep if I were the Pelicans.
Trade 3 SRPs, Stevan Adams, their 2022 Lakers and 2024 lakers FRP for Myles Turner
Turner gives them the needed defense and 3 point shooting they need which is a better fit for Zion, which they need.
I FORGOT TO HAVE THEM GIVE UP THEIR 43RD PICK FOR JOSH RICHARDSON
Richardson gives them defense with the ability of shooting the 3. He would be extended immideatley to a 3/25 million dollar contract.
DRAFT: MOSES MOODY
Selecting Moody is good because he gives them the necessary 3 & D player for the Pelicans. He should be a plus defender from day 1, and his 3 should translate. I suspect that he will be purely a 3 and D player and a solid role player from his first year with potential to develop more skills, improve his 3 point shooting and defense later on.
PACERS: The Turner-Sabonis forecourt hasn't worked out, and everyone knows that. The match just isn't there, and they need to trade one of them. I highly doubt that its Sabonis, unless its for something just too tempting to pass up. Here is a far turner deal I believe for the Pacers. Morris is a solid defender and can shoot the 3. Morris shot the 3 47 precent in over 5 attempts, but even if he can get it to 40 precent, far less then 47 precent then it'd still be a huge positive, and bring the needed shooting to the Pacers, in addition the fit with him and Sabonis is better then turner and Sabonis.
CLIPPERS: The Clippers would trade Marcus Morris for Stevan Adams and the 53rd pick. For them, Adams is a great rebounder and they could have some more small-ball lineups and not be punished on the glass with him averaging 8.9 rebounds, being one of the better rebounders for centers. Adams is a solid player, and the 53rd pick is a sweeter. With Ibaka potentially being gone next season, getting Adams, a potential long tern center (meaning 3-5 years) and getting out of Morris's contract could be the best case for them.
