The Lakers really need a good shooter off the bench, and they get that from the hated-on, but pretty underrated 3-point specialist Luke Kennard. Also, they get to dump THT to the Pacers, who can try and develop the once-beholden young forward.

The Clippers dump Kennard’s contract to get an instant upgrade at center in Myles Turner, and they don’t give up any major assets other than potentially valuable picks.

The Pacers GET 2 potentially valuable picks that will likely fall during the Clippers rebuild (one is a swap but still holds the same value). While THT is good for development and Gabriel provides depth, they aren’t the focal point of the deal.

Isaiah Hartenstein showed his big potential on a contender last season, so now the Pacers get to continue to develop his talents this year along with Isaiah Jackson. And Jason Preston, the sadly unplayed SRP, can take over as a backup PG, replacing the role of Duane Washington, who was let go for no reason.
