Trade:

Bulls: Christian Wood

Rockets: Juancho Hernangomez, Tony Bradley, 2026 lottery protected frp

Jazz: Coby White


Rockets:

They are a rebuilding team they want to trade all their vets and get back future assets. Wood is a very solid PF/C who still hv 1 year left on his deal, his value won't be high because of that. Here Rockets get back Tony Bradley, who i think will be a good fit in the Rockets, and he's just 24, and Coby White, who didn't play like a 7th pick, but he's still a very solid rotational piece with great shooting. But the Rockets, the PG beside Jalen needs to have defense, and Coby White? probably not the guy. So Rockets will then trade him to the Jazz for a lottery protected frp.

Lineup: KPJ Jalen Tate (1st pick: Jabari Smith JR) Sengun

Reserves: (17th pick: Tyty Washington JR) Powell Bradley Christopher KJ Martin Juan Hernangomez Matthews Nwaba

Expectation: 13-15th seed


Bulls:

Their biggest problem is super clear, not enough post D. Vucevic is an way under average defender, Pat WIlliams is more of a perimeter defender. They got no post D, the best in their team? Tristan Thompson... So they will trade for Wood here. This trade idea might seems popular but i think Bulls is just the best destination for Wood, so i did this explanation. Wood can provide them the D ofc, and he also hv solid scoring, also an above average shooting big, but ofc i don't think he can shoot too much in this team, cus Vucevic will be on the 3 pt line, and Wood most of the time probably need to stay in the paint. They gave up Bradley, i think they can just sign back a rim protecting vet from FA. And Cody White, but Bulls PG spot is very full alrdy with Zo Caruso and Ayo, so they can let Coby go. They make this trade also aim to raise Lavine's interest to stay, cus looks like he's not guarantee to go back to Bulls, hot destination being Blazers and Spurs.

Lineup: Zo Lavine (assume he will be back first) Demar Wood Vucevic

Reserve: Ayo GOAT (u know who it is) Pat Will Javonte Green (19th pick: Christian Koloko) (2 FA)

Expectation: 1-3th seed (rmb be4 Zo's injured they are the 1st seed)


Jazz:

Jazz's direction is selling, not rebuilding. They won't trade Mitchell for sure, and don't think they're planning to tank for few years, get high draft picks, and go again. They will trade this lottery protected frp for Coby White. First ik yall will be mad for me to trade a pick for the Jazz, im currently working on a blowup trade for the Jazz, it will be a 5 team trade and Jazz will get back picks. I just think Jazz after trading Conley, they can use a young PG, Mitchell can hv the defense to fill out Coby's under average defense. These 2 probably will be a good shooting backcourt.

Lineup: Coby Mitchell OG Harris Precious

Reserve: Bojan NAW Paschall Azubuike Butler Bassey Svi

Remarks: Roster combined with the 5 team trade incoming

Expectation: 10-12th seed
