Out: Porzingis, Noah, Lee
In: Parker, Monroe, Hawes, McDermott, Grant, 2022 1st rd pick

Out: Adams, McDermott, Grant, 2022 1st rd pick
In: Noah, Porzingis

Out: Parker, Monroe, Hawes
In: Adams, Lee

New York does this to get rid of Noah and Lee's 3 more years of guaranteed contracts at the expense of Porzingis. In return receive potential all-star talent in Parker. All they receive are expiring contracts.

OKC does this to have their 3rd scorer although they would have the 2 worst contracts in the league with Kanter and Noah.

MIL does this to get their post presence which suits their young core.

Follow-up trade for NY maybe on the trade deadline if they are still no takers for Melo..


Melo for Clarkson, Randle

Bring the banana boat to Lakers in 2018.

Ntilikina, Sessions
THJ, Clarkson, McDermott
Parker, Grant, Thomas
Randle, Hawes
Hernangomez, Monroe
+ lots of caps space next season

Lord no from the Knicks. They get a broken prospect and some dead weight and a pick 8 years away for porzingis? Oh they drop Noah's contract. Amazing.

I actually don't hate Bucks adding Adams for Parker especially when you consider what you'll have to pay Parker to keep him around after this season (likely a max assuming he doesn't suffer another major injury) . No Adams isn't as good as Parker pre-injury (but Parker isn't likely to be as good as he was pre-injury) but he is a great fit with the Bucks and gives them what they need as a big interior force that can rebound and defend. Adams is also young enough at 24 to grow with that young Bucks team. Better yet they could try and nab Porzingis for themselves. Porzingis, Maker and Giannis would make a freakish front court.

Great value for Thunder.

Hate for the Knicks. Not sure why they want to clear salary space so bad (their recent history shows they don't spend it well and without Porzingis why would any top free agent want to go there) . Parker is a risk that I wouldn't want as my primary return if I were giving up Porzingis especially when a primary motivator is to free salary space but Knicks would have to pay Parker probably the max in RFA this summer in order to keep him.
