OKC takes on Adams and Bledsoe for Pick 10 to free up cap space for the Pelicans.

NOP takes that space and reunites Lowry and DeRozan while also retaining Ball. They are now ready for a playoff push and should make Zion happy. Since both sides have to touch the trade, OKC offers pick 36.

OKC then takes Kemba Walker and offers him to the Lakers. KCP + Kuzma + Pick 22 get this done as it seems the Lakers need another guy to help take the load off LeBron and AD as they search for their second title in three seasons.

OKC takes picks 16, 18, and Kuzma offers them to SAC for pick 9 and Bagley. Kuzma stays in Cali and Bagley gets out of Cali! This should help SAC pursue Ben Simmons with multiple firsts to go with Hield and Barnes and/or give them multiple cracks at guys with upside in a flat draft class beyond pick their pick at 9.

OKC now has options to package their picks to move up or can stay put and take 3 top 10 picks. They will likely eat KCP, Bledsoe for a season (then cut him for the $3ish million guaranteed next season), and keep Adams for the culture.
