++ROCKETS++

  • Waive Ibaka (let him rehab if he is still fighting through recovery)

  • Waive Augustine (cap hit of over $300k next year)

  • Add big man spacing

  • Move the rookies into playing minutes

LINEUP (current + healthy)

KPJ/Green/Tate/Sengun/Wood

Bledsoe/JayGup/KJ/Garuba/Love

++Clippers++

  • Go all in for this year

  • Get help while Kawhi is out

  • Wall declines last year and resigns cheaper and for longer

  • Gordons 3rd year is non garunteed

  • Zubac/Hartenstein as the Center rotation

  • Bledsoe has been good but ultimately Wall>Bledsoe

LINEUP (current)

Wall/Gordon/PG/Batum/Zubac

Reggie/(Keon?)/Mann/Winslow/Hartenstein

LINEUP (healthy)

Wall/Gordon/Kawhi/PG/Zubac

++CAVALIERS++

  • Move off of Love

  • Get wing depth

  • Get shooting/spacing

  • Fill out bench (which is lacking bigs surprisingly)

  • Get help with Mobley out a few weeks

  • Makes Sexton a bit more expendable when he returns (look for another trade)

LINEUP (current)

Garland/Okoro/Morris/Markanan/Allen

Rubio/Kennard/House/Dean Wade/Theis

LINEUP (healthy)
