I did not mean to add protections on the 2029 heat pick going to the Jazz.
Why each team does this:
Miami Heat- With the stars looking out of reach for the Miami Heat they go to a different plan and trade for their weakness. By trading Kyle Lowry for Patrick Beverley they allow Tyler Herro to become the ball handler and they add more defense and an energy guy to the starting lineup. By adding Myles Turner they add paint defense and can move Bam to his natural position of the four. Off they bench the add the much needed scoring of Jordan Clarkson and the rebounding of Jared Vanderbilt two weaknesses shown in the playoffs last offseason. They add depth in the signing of Anthony and Cousins to minimum contracts.
Indiana Pacers- They take on Duncan's contract and get a young player with potential in Highsmith while getting one first and 2 seconds for a player they were gonna lose in free agency.
Utah Jazz- They start there rebuild off good they get three young players with a bunch of potential, a player that they can rebuild his value and trade later on for a pick, and three first round picks.
Dallas Mavericks- They give up three players that would probably not be in their rotation for a playmaker that can replace Brunson's productivity and a first to get rid of Bertans contract.
Oklahoma City Thunder- They get a second from the heat for the release of the protections on the 2025 Miami Heat first round pick.
