I'd want atleast a protected first if I were the Magic in the Vucevic trade. Henson has no value to them. He's 28 (to old for a rebuild, doesn't do anything Biyombo can't do, and signed for a year longer than Vucevic. Wilson hasn't even played anything, but mop up minutes and late 2nds have little value. Vucevic is a solid starting center. Also, unless their pick falls and Bagley is clearly the best available, I don't see him as a great fit for the Magic. His best position in the NBA is probably PF and that's really the only position that it seems like Orlando has a definite future starter.

Even if Minnesota had the cap space to do that, they would pass. They have no need for Augustin.

Smart wants more than 12 mil a year.

Tostitos, he can want more that 12 million, but he's not even getting that this year. The money just isn't out there. There are 9 teams that actually have cap space and I can't see any of them giving a big contract to a defensive sixth man. Look at the deal Roberson signed last year, when there was more money available and he only ended up with that because the Thunder needed to keep him. If Boston isn't motivated to bring back Smart (which is a reasonable assumption given Rosier and their wing depth), he might end with the MLE (around 8) or less.

MrMarHeel, forgot about him. You can either place him as a backup SG or SF.

The Bucks say No! And NOT worth a 1st rd pick! Wilson's PT has stopped by the Bucks playing more Small ball, Like other teams are doing, and nothing. He actually spends a lot of team in Milwaukee's "G" League, (The Wisconsin Herd) As far as Vucevic being a solid starting Center, He usually gets pulled in the 4th qt. The bucks would be better off keeping Henson, Wilson and their 2-2nd rd picks. They will no doubt be looking to do some trading next year.
