Comment Opinions Please. Is This Good? Read The Full Description As All The Trade Details, Draft Picks, & Free Agent Signings Are There.

1. Trade Devonte Graham, Kira Lewis Jr, Willy Hernangomez, & 2022 1st(#8) To The Toronto Raptors For Fred VanVleet & 2022 DET 2nd(#33)

Why ?: VanVleet is the point guard New Orleans needs to become a legit championship contender next season & gain favorable seeding in a stacked western conference. He’s a great shooter, ball handler, passer, defender, & has championship experience.

2. Move Garrett Temple & 2024 CHI 2nd To The Orlando Magic For A 3D Printer

Why ?: To get comfortably under the luxury line in order to ink their rookies & sign Isaiah Thomas to a contract.

3. Draft Bryce McGowens(SG, 6’6 175) With The #33 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: McGowens has high potential to be a consistent two way role player in the league. He’s an impressive off ball scorer that can also create his own shot. Highlight-reel dunks are also something he brings to the table.

4. Draft Ismael Kamagate(C, 6’11 225) With The #41 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: He projects to be a solid rim protector in the league as someone who is very long & athletic. Kamagate excels at scoring on rolls & in the transition as well.

5. Draft Dominick Barlow(PF, 6’10 215) With The #52 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: This is someone who has flown under the radar & isn’t on many people’s draft boards. He took a unique path to get to the NBA draft, which may be why there’s a good chance he’ll go undrafted. But Barlow is worth the shot at 52. He’s a tall, lengthy, & energetic combo forward that has potential to surprise some people, like Herb Jones did this season.

6. Sign Isaiah Thomas To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum($2.4 Million)

Why ?: Thomas would be a great veteran & mentor on a team with title aspirations. He would also be very helpful developing Alvarado & improving his overall game.
