WIth Pels suprisingly doing good this season, Pacers rebuilding, Lakers 360 trio didn't work out, here is a win now trade for the Pels, getting Lakers more shooting, and a tanking trade for Pacers


Trade:

Hornets: pick 8, pick 52

Lakers: Buddy Hield, Devonte Graham

Pacers: Russell Westbrook, THT, Jaxson Hayes, Kira Lewis, pick 15, 2027 LAL top 10 protected frp

Pelicans: Malcolm Brogdon, pick 13, 2025 CHA lottery protected frp


Lakers:

Just want to say a point, ppl still think Westbrook have some trade value, nah hell no, he’s now on negative value. Lakers have to pay to ship him away. He’s ruining a team, keep turning the ball over, shooting the worst bricks ever lol. And he just think he’s still a great player… Lakers 100% have to trade him, he already deleted his Lakers IG post i think. THT is another guy who’s kinda in the Lakers trading block, So he will also be packaged. They will get back Hield and Graham. Hield he suddenly followed kingjames on IG lol, that maybe is a sign. Also he’s a guy that the Lakers want, cus his shooting rlly is a good fit beside Lebron. Graham? I heard someone said he’s the worst player in the league, and im not mad at it. He’s a 6’1 PG, with bad efficiency as a sharpshooter, bad defense, and he’s on a 3 year contract. Lakers will kinda eat his contract, but then Lakers can use him! He did show he is a good player in the Hornets, and he can rebirth in the Lakers i guess, with the huge need for shooting. Graham’s value is less than THT for a bit, so Lakers can maybe avoid giving up another srp or even another frp. They will love to keep their frp, so they just need to give 1 and that’s a fair trade.

Lineup: Nunn Hield Bron (FA) AD

Reserves: Graham Reaves Garbiel (4 more FA) (I guess there will still be FA who wants to sign for the Lakers cus of Bron)

Expectation: they should at least be the 7th seed with this team (without AD injury again)


Pelicans:

Pels did unexpectedly well in the playoffs. This shows that when Zion comes back they’re ready to raise themselves onto another level. As said as my mock draft, Pelicans need another Zo, another great passing PG beside Zion to max out his offensive game. I got Pels drafted Dyson in the draft, also a great fit for them, but an experienced PG will for sure help them win now even more. So they trade for Brogdon. He will definitely help them, with his great passing and he also have the defense Pels need. I love the fit. They also traded away Hayes, which i saw reports that he’s rumored to be traded. His usage rlly isn’t that big for the Pels, and trading him away will fill out a bit of the return value for Brogdon and actually fill out the value of eating Graham’s contract. Previously i got them trading the 8th pick in the draft, but many of yall said it’s a overpay and Pels can use the 8th pick. I think the Hornets will send a very good package to the Pels and they can also get future assets. They will move down to 13, but at the same time getting another future frp.

Lineup: Brogdon CJ Ingram Zion Jonas

Reserves: Alvarado Herb Trey Murphy Nance (13th pick) (2 srp players)

Expectation: I can see them making the playoffs, not even the play-in, probably be a 5th seed


Pacers:

They are on a rebuilding track, so they must trade their vets. They get back Hayes and THT, Kira, 3 young guys, who hvn’t prove themselves too much, but they still hv a bit potential. Westbrook idk will they even play him. But eating his contract will also bring back assets for them. The basically traded 2 vets for 3 young guys 2 frp, i would say it’s a good return.

Lineup: Tyrese Durate (5th pick) (15th pick) Turner

Reserves: TJ McConnel (trade block) Smith Jackson Goga Brissett Kira (60th pick)

Expectation: depends who they are drafting, I think they will be 13th seed


Hornets:

This is a trade, where the Hornets have to get done, no matter what. i know in my mock draft, i said Mark WIlliams is the perfect fit for this team offensively and defensively, but if they move up to 8th pick, they will hv a super high chance to get Jalen Duren, a super young rim protecting defensive center who hv sky high potential. He’s not even 19, and his rim protection is the exact thing the Hornets need here. They will move 13 15 and future frp for 8 and srp. Imagine Melo and Duren in the future…

Lineup: Lamelo Rozier Hayward Bridges (8th pick: Jalen Duren)

Reserves: Oubre Plumlee PJ Bouknight McDaniels Cody (srp)

Expectation: 7-9 seed
