Spurs

The Spurs trade Lonnie Walker, Keldon Johnson, Tre Jones, and a 2025 1st round pick in exchange for Collin Sexton. The Spurs do this to acquire a player with promise, and a high scoring guard as an improvement to form a duo with Dejounte Murray. Sexton can carry the team on offense, and his defensive insecurities will be well hidden because of his teammates like, Jakob Poeltl, Thaddeus Young, and Dejounte Murray. They will have an outstanding core of, Collin Sexton, Joshua Primo, Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, and Bryn Forbes. Wait what? Bryn Forbes? Yes. I have been high on Bryn Forbes ever since his rookie year, and in the playoffs, he was great. He outscored Jimmy Butler in the playoffs and was on fire from three. Letting go of Lonnie Walker will let Bryn Forbes unlock his potential. The only problem is his defense, but I think the Spurs have enough defenders to cover that too. With an elite defense and offense, the Spurs will definitely be in playoff contention.

Projected Starting Lineup:

Dejounte Murray - Collin Sexton - Devin Vasell - Thaddeus Young - Jakob Poeltl

Cavaliers

Collin Sexton has been in a lot of drama. Every offseason, we hear that Collin Sexton doesn't like the Cavaliers and that he is a locker room cancer. So understandably, the Cavaliers were hesitant about paying him and he didn't get that payday. They trade him, and in return they are getting two really good and young players. Lonnie Walker is only 22 years old, and he is averaging just over 8 points for a career. They also get Keldon Johnson who won an Olympic gold medal for Team USA. This trade will improve their young core, and in a few years they could be a real threat.
