They do it. They manage to pair Lillard up with Embiid and all it costs them was Simmons and all their draft capital. Considering Morey is a win now kinda GM (as a Rockets die hard i know this to be true) he wouldnt blink at the idea of giving up as many picks as possible (including the ones received from other teams) for a garunteed superstar. Sexton may be the odd one in the bunch, but if he can show out as Lillards backup, there will surely be a market for him come the trade deadline. Otherwise (though i doubt it) Philly could look at signing him to a decent contract to be one of the better 6th men in the league.

Lillard/Thybulle/Green/Harris/Embiid

Sexton/Shake/Korkmaz/Niang/Drummond

++Portland++

Swimmig in picks. All off them. 5 first round picks and 2 pick swaps. Thats what it would take to pry Damian Lillard from the Trailblazers. And he is more than worth it. Wall is a downgrade for sure, though theres an arguement here that having Walls (still decent) athleticism and defense next to CJ could keep them in playoff contention. They get a qualified wing with House, and their guard incumbent in Maxey. They other thing this does for Portland, which it hasnt had for a while, is give them options. Do they stay on the same route as before and gun for the playoffs with a slight chance of an upset? Do they blow the whole roster up? Do they cash in their newly stocked cupboards for another disgruntled star? Choices, choices..

Wall/CJ/House/RoCo/Nurkic

Maxey/Norm/Brown/Zeller

++Cleveland++

Rumours, rumours, rumours. It seems like Simmons has been linked to Cleveland all offseason at this point, so they finally get their guy. Now looking at the roster as is, the spacing looks horrendous. So The Cavs try to mitigate this by surrounding Simmons with shooters. Theres a line up that can be played here with decent (eh..) shooting at every other position (Garland/Gordon/Simmon/Lauri/Mobley) that could really help to give Simmons what he really needs to ball out in the NBA. Spacing.

Garland/Okoro/Simmons/Mobley/Allen

Seth/Gordon/Cedi/Windler/Lauri

++Rockets++

As much as they tried to resist, Wall and Houston part ways after 1 season. And unfortunately the Rockets have to give up a pick to do so. Grabing Rubio as a backup to KPJ would be a great move, if only because they make up for each others downfalls. Grabing Love.. yeah. Thats not great, but to salary match Walls outgoing contract, its necessary. And who knows, a change of scenery could be great for Love, much like his old teamate, he could find a space for himself in Houston.

  • on a side note. This could be a great opportunity for the Rockets to use the initiative and put an emphasis on mental health in the NBA. Love has been a huge advocate for being able to speak up in regards to this issue. The Rockets have had a very public story with this in the past (Royce White) and with John Lucas' work with KPJ i think theres a really good opportunity for them here.
