First Trade:

Hawks: Jalen Brunson (Sign and Trade), Dwight Powell

Mavericks: John Collins, Kevin Knox (Sign and Trade), 2023 FRP, 44th Pick, 2023 SRP (via BKN or CHA)

Why do the Hawks do this?: To get a premier 2nd scoring option and backcourt mate for Trae Young who can handle the ball efficiently.

Why do the Mavericks do this?: This is the best sign and trade deal they would get (haha you though Knicks), getting to pair a dynamic, young, possible 20-10 forward in Collins with Christian Wood in the frontcourt. Knox brings needed depth to the forward group after the Wood deal.

Starting Lineup: Doncic-Dinwiddie-DFS-Collins-Wood (THJ 6th Man)

2nd Trade:

Hawks: Patrick Beverly, 19th Overall Pick, Nathan Knight (Sign and Trade)

Timberwolves: Clint Capela, 2023 SRP, 2024 SRP (via Miami)

Why Do The Hawks Do This; To Open Up Playing Time For Their Center Of The Future, Onyeka Okongwu, And To Get A Defensive-Minded Backup PG Who Brings A Needed Personality To The Team.

Why do the Wolves do this?; To Aquroe A Good Defending, Master Rebounding Center To Fit With The Offensive-Minded Anthony-Towns In The Frontcourt

DLO-Ant-Vanderbilt-Towns-Capela

3rd Trade:

Hawks: Johnathan Issac

Magic: Danilo Gallinari (Will Then Waive His Contract After Aquisition, Making Him A Free Agent), Nathan Knight, 19th Pick

Why Do The Hawks Do This?: To Create One of The Greatest Defensive Frontcourts In The League With Issac And Okongwu.

Why Do The Magic Do This?: They waive Gallo, so the reasoning is to free cap space and a spot in the starting lineup for Jabari Smith or Chet Holmgren. They also do it for the extra FRP in this year’s draft.

Anthony-Suggs-Wagner-Smith/Holmgren-Carter Jr.

RESIGN DELON WRIGHT: To bring back the defensive minded combo guard/forward who was very impactful in the 2nd half of the season.

DO NOT EXTEND DE’ANDRE HUNTER: Give him a prove it year like Miles Bridges, he’ll be a RFA next year so we could match any other offers.

16th Pick: TARI EASON: A 6th man option with terrific offensive explosiveness and defensive ability, can play backup PF with Jalen Johnson.

Hawks Lineup:

Young-Brunson-Hunter-Issac-Okongwu

Beverly-Bogdanovic-Huerter/Wright-Johnson/Eason-Powell
