Raptors pivot to a roster re-set, swapping out Siakam and his contract for the #8 overall pick, a 2023 swap option with the Lakers, and other smaller contracts. They also get a flyer on J. Hayes who could thrive in their uber-athlete system. Holmes is a stop-gap starter/bench C on a decent contract. The real prize is the #8 overall pick, where they trust their scouting to get the perfect fit young potential star. One of: Sochan, Daniels, Mathurin, Dieng, Griffin, Duren, etc.

Precious / Holmes Anunoby / Hayes / Harkless Barnes / Yuta / Banton Trent / *Daniels VanVleet / Flynn

  • 2023 LAL pick swap (better of LAL or NOP)

Kings want to add a star to help their win-now approach. Here they use the #4 pick to get Siakam, a near-perfect fit alongside Sabonis and Fox, along with shedding Holmes mis-fit contract, and adding a valuable 2024 LAL pick which can be deferred to 2025. This is negotiable, depending on how valuable one views Siakam or the #4 pick.

Sabonis / Len / Queta Siakam / Metu Barnes / Holiday Mitchell / T. Davis Fox / FA

Pelicans cash in their Lakers picks to move up to #4 to have a chance to draft a tier-2 level potential superstar. It would be down to Ivey or Sharpe, most likely, players who project to have a much high superstar potential level than prospects at # 8. With a full roster of contributors, they have the luxury of swinging for the fences.

Jonas / Hernangomez / Birch Zion / Nance Ingram / Murphy / Naji Herb / Sharpe / Graham McCullom / Alvarado / Kira
