Washington Wizards x New York Knicks | Trade Explanation

Beal remains an excellent scorer. This deal doesn’t land the Knicks a top-10 player, but they’ve already been successful without one, and it does make them a lot better.

The Wizards need to trade Beal. Whether you like this return or not, that’s a fact. This team is once again stuck in the middle. The lower middle, no less. It’s time for the Wizards to accept the reality of their situation. This deal should help them plummet to the bottom. If they want to move Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Kuzma in separate transactions, that would make sense too. This deal is all about tanking ahead of an elite draft.


New York Knicks x Detroit Pistons | Trade Explanation

If Toppin has some additional offensive game in his arsenal, this could be a steal for Detroit. Even if he doesn’t, he’s a valuable rotation player. Following this deal, the Pistons will have a clear goal – get out of the lottery by 2025.

The Knicks might as well move on from Toppin. They’ll be hoping to trade this pick along with a bunch of others for a star before it conveys – or, doesn’t. After all, the Knicks aren’t rebuilding – they’re just loaded with assets they’d need if they were.
