Fanspo logo

Comment Opinions Please. Is This Fair?

Trade Breakdown

CLE: Tim Hardaway Jr, Reggie Bullock, & JaVale McGee

DAL: Issac Okoro, Lamar Stevens, Kevin Love, & 2026 LAL 2nd


Why Cleveland Does This?

1) Land two wings in Tim Hardaway Jr & Reggie Bullock who can provide needed outside shooting.

2) Acquire more big man depth in JaVale McGee, who already had a decent run in Cleveland.

3) Put themselves in much better position for a deep playoff run.

Next Moves To Make

• Send Dylan Windler, Robin Lopez, & 2027 DEN 2nd To The Knicks For Cam Reddish

• Sign Kent Bazemore & Jeremy Lamb

Cavaliers Ideal Starting Lineup:

Garland, Mitchell, Hardaway Jr, Mobley, & Allen

Backup Five:

Rubio, LeVert, Bullock, Osman, & Wade

Rest Of Bench:

Neto, Bazemore, Lamb, Reddish, & McGee


Why Dallas Does This?

1) Get younger with the additions of Issac Okoro & Lamar Stevens.

2) Gain a very large expiring contract in Kevin Love who can help them in the meantime & be resigned for cheap.

3) Create around $21-22M of cap space in the upcoming offseason for a potential big free agent signing.

Next Moves To Make

• Deal Davis Bertans, Theo Pinson, 2027 2nd, & 2029 2nd To The Hornets For Terry Rozier

• Sign Carmelo Anthony

Mavericks Ideal Starting Lineup:

Doncic, Dinwiddie, Finney-Smith, Love, & Wood

Backup Five:

Rozier, Green, Okoro, Kleber, & Powell

Rest Of Bench:

Ntilikina, Hardy, Anthony, Stevens, & Whiteside
