THAT SECOND ROUND PICK IS 2022 DETROIT SECOND, MACHINE DIDN'T GIVE IT TO SPURS YET
WHY PISTONS DO IT:
They swap Olynyk for Poeltl, a much younger player with room for improvement.
WHY MAGIC DO IT:
For accepting Dwight they get a young player they can develop and a sure 31-35 pick.
WHY SPURS DO IT:
Thad, Poeltl, Collins and a second for Brown and KP is an extremely fair price. They don't contend, so they could give KP time to get stronger while tanking. Pop wanted Markkanen, so I think he'll gladly accept KP for this very cheap price.
2022-23 starting 5: Murray, White, Vassell, Chet/Banchero/Duren, KP + Keldon, Lonnie, Primo.
WHY MAVS DO IT:
Luka Doncic DESERVES a team that can reach its full potential. That's why I'm doing it, I'm tired that he has to do it all by himself because there are 30M not available.
Starting 5: Luka, Tim, DFS, Maxi, Olynyk
Second Unit: Jalen, Harris, Reggie, Thad, Lopez
Third Unit: Ntili, Sterling, Zach, WCS, Boban
Luka and 12 soldiers (Boban is just a few minutes player, Zach is always dead) at his service: EXPERIENCE, STRETCH 5, SECONDARY BALL HANDLER, DEFENSE, RIM PROTECTION, we'd have everything.
CONS: We lose KP investment for a "win now" project.
