Sacramento: It's clear that Ivey is BPA at 4, but their fit with the Kings isn't great. That said, multiple teams around the league are said to be vying for this pick to take him. Grant appears to be a better fit next to Sabonis and Fox and, with two top-7 picks, I’d expect the Kings to target Keegan Murray, Shaedon Sharpe, Benedict Mathura, and AJ Griffin.

Detroit: If Detroit feels Ivey can be their 2-guard for the future with Cade, they'll have to outbid a number of teams to move up and take him. Grant is an expiring contract and not expected to be part of their long-term future. Giving up Bey might be the deal-breaker, but it all hinges on how much they value Ivey. This deal also clears up a considerable amount of Cap Space for free agency.

Portland: Portland is in a win-now mode, trying to continue maximizing Lillard’s prime. This deal brings two two-way wings that can immediately impact winning. Bey is a young wing that would be considered a part of their long-term core. These two plus a future first should be enough compensation for the #7 pick.

As a King's fan. I’d be curious to hear from Blazers and Pistons fans. Am I blinded by fandom or does this make sense for all parties? Are Bey and a future first enough for the #7? Is Detroit willing to give up Grant and Bey to pair Ivey with Cade for the future?
