Pls check this trade after u see this, thx: https://fanspo.com/nba/s/general/trades/Qe_zT1x0anYtOn/5-team-trade-that-fits-every-teams-direction-treat-olynyk-as-tht


Trade:

Lakers: Kelly Olynyk, DeAngelo Russell, Buddy Hield, 48th pick, 2025 IND swap worse frp

Pistons: THT

Pacers: Russell Westbrook, 19th pick, 2025 LAL swap best frp, 2027 LAL top 10 protected frp, 2028 LAL srp

Wolves: Stanley Johnson, Malcolm Brogdon


Lakers:

They flip Westbrook Stanley and THT for Hield and Olynyk, good shooters. New PG with Russell, where they can choose to resign or let walk and clear up the cap, and also get a srp this year. This is probably the last dance for Bron in Lakers, they have to go all in. frp and swap will be thrown in cus they're getting back way better players than Westbrook. And swap future srp for this year srp

Expectation: 6-8th seed


Pacers:

They eat westbrook here, get back picks, trade Brogdon and Hield who are vets that don't fit their timeline, and get back picks as well. Picks inc 19th pick, future frp and swap best frp, and a srp

Expectation: 12-14th seed


Wolves:

The Russell trade has gone terrible, they will flip him for Brogdon and Stanley. Russell is probably upset after the game 6 of the series vs Grizz where he didn't get clutch mins. He mught want out. Brogdon is a better defensive and playmaking guard, he fits in well with KAT and ANT who's alrdy 1st and 2nd scoring option. Stanley provides a defensive wing for them, sth that they're also searching for. They trade away their 19th pick and 48th pick, they're alrdy deep enough, they don't need it. They also save up 8M in this deal.

Expectation: 6-8th seed


Pistons:
