Lakers make a move for more wing size and shooting (though both Ingram and Robinson are currently out injured) and replace Westbrook with FVV. 2025 pick is a pick swap with Pelicans giving NO the right to swap with Lakers (top 3 protected).

Pelicans, who are dealing with injuries to their SG, SF, and PF, replace them with two players under contract, pick up a pick swap with the Lakers, and shed salary in Hayes to get under the luxury tax.

Heat dump Robinson and a pick, and move on from chronically injured Lowry to be a team with cap space next summer. Westbrook is perhaps moved on again if they can get anything for him, or they likely send him home. He is an acquisition only for his salary.

Raptors maximize the return for Anunoby, get another pick for FVV, and pick up DLo as a possible player for next year or they move him for another asset in a separate deal.

Timberwolves bring in Lowry who is also under contract for next year, to try and provide leadership and get the back in the right direction.
