The Raptors look to upgrade depth in a 3-team deal that sees them collect some depth at Guard, who can shoot and defend. Something they sorely lack. Eric Gordon is averaging 15 ppg on 45% from beyond the arc, along with 3.5 apg. But due to his injury history, and contract, Raptors might need a guy like Tate to sweeten the deal, who at 27 Years old doesnt exactly fit in with the tanking Rockets.

Rockets get Svi a 24 year old shot creator, who hasnt had much like making shots, but has shown some capability as a wing who can both handle and shoot the ball. He will get a ton of minutes in Houston to get some run and hopefully gain some value. Goran gets included as salary filler, and could either be moved for nothing, or sat all year, as hes been doing for the Raptors. Or if Rockets feel generous they can waive him allowing him to rejoin Miami or his son Luka Doncic in Dallas.

Indiana is going to rebuild. Trading a 32 year old makes sense. Pacers get Boucher Flynn and 2 2nd round picks as they attempt to stockpile assets. Boucher who was very good as a starter last year has only recently begun to play well. Mainly due to covid protols and Raptors only have 7 players available most nights. If Pacers are selling off, they may have minutes to throw at Boucher in the hopes he can regain value and be dealt. Flynn was recently a 1st round pick and showed promise last year in the same environment Boucher thrived. Throw in 2 2nd rounders to sweeten the deal.

Who says no?
