++Rockets++

The more I think about it. The more I really like the idea of Wiggins on this team. The Rockets will have a tough time going forward, and a couple areas of improvement will need to be defense and 3pt shooting. While the later should come around in time, I'm a bit apprehensive about the defensive outlook of this young team.

Wiggins and Wood fit each others "timeline" which would fall in line to becoming the vet leaders on this team in a few years.

Being able to move Wall to a team he's had interest in is a good move for the organisation and being able to get a more capable backup 1 guard will help the development of KPJ and Green. Nevermind the fact that he already has a relationship with other rookie Garuba from the Spanish national team.

Healthy Line Up

KPJ/GREEN/WIGGINS/SENGUN/WOOD

RUBIO/NWABA/TATE/KJ/LOVE(LOONEY)

++Warriors++

Bit of a tough sell, but picking up a guy like Gordon who can help while Klays out, a capable PG off the bench and an expiring big (although out for the time being) seems to fill some immediate and future needs.

They do save a liiiitle bit of money which helps, and Ibaka coming off the books next year should help too.

The pick helps get this across the line, and more so than I think any team in the league the Warriors hit on draft picks more often than not.

Healthy lineup

STEPH/KLAY/KUMINGA/DRAYMOND/WISEMAN

AUGUSTINE/POOLE/GORDON/OPJ/IBAKA(IGGY)

++Cavaliers++

On paper another big man doesn't make a tonn of sense, but so far the Cavs seem to be running a 3 headed giant monster in their starting lineup.

They lose Rubio but get another backup guard and some MUCH needed shooting and wing help.

The relationship with Kevin Love seems to have been mended a bit, but there is still a lot of baggage there so moving him without losing much value is a great move.

Healthy Lineup:

GARLAND/SEXTON/MARKANAN/MOBLEY/ALLEN

BLEDSOE/KENNARD/OKORO/HOUSE/THEIS(CEDI)

++Clippers++

Unfortunately off to a dissapointing start to the season (though there are a lot of positives still). Adding a running mate next to George while Kawhi is out may just be the bandaid the team needs until Kawhi returns.

Bledsoe has shown promise early, but Wall is still a clear upgrade at the 1 spot for this team. Kennard wasn't able to get playoff minutes last year, and Ibakas expiring is a nice piece to dangle.

The hope here is that Wall declines his last year to sign a longer term deal for less money, almost like CP3 has done in Pheonix.

Healthy Lineup:

WALL/MANN/KAWHI/GEORGE/ZUBAC

REGGIE/KEON/WINSLOW/BATUM/HARTENSTEIN
