MIN gets:

- DeMar DeRozan
- Wesley Matthews
- Reggie Jackson

TOR gets:

- Andrew Wiggins
- Gorgui Dieng
- MIN 2018 1st round pick (#20)
- Pistons 2nd round pick (#43)

DAL gets:

- Cole Aldrich
- Jon Leuer
- MIN 2019 1st round pick (Top 10 protected)
- Jonathan Simmons
- D. J. Augustin

DET gets:

- Kyle Lowry

ORL gets:

- Jeff Teague

MIN does this because.

- they get the best player in the trade. DeRozan and Butler automatically become one of the best wing duos in the league. Reggie Jackson is a solid point guard - hust like Jeff Teague. Plus, Wesley Matthews is a good veteran and solid back up wing. Also, getting rid of Andrew Wiggins, who was causing problems with Jimmy Butler and Thibs, will be nice as well.

PG: R. Jackson-D. Rose-T. Jones
SG: J. Butler-W. Matthews
SF: D. DeRozan-FA
PF: T. Gibson-FA
C: K. Anthony-Towns-J. Patton

TOR does this because.

- they are officially in rebuild mode. Getting swept by the LeBron's - I mean Cavs - should make it obvious that it is ime to rebuild. They should get rid of Kyle Lowry before he is considered a bad contract. While losing their franchise player, DeMar DeRozan, will hurt, TOR does get two picks and Andrew Wiggins - who still has a lot of potential.

Potential Starting lineup:

To be decided. with more trades

DAL does this because.

- they gain a pick. While they do pick up a bunch of expensive contracts, a pick for the tanking Mavericks should always make Mark Cuban happy.

Potential Starting lineup:

It does not matter

DET does this because.

- they have to go all in. Now with Blake Griffin's contract, the Pistons have to invest all they have in the present. Adding Kyle Lowry gives the Pistons another star and another shot at making it to the playoffs.

PG: K. Lowry-Ish Smith
SG: L. Kennard-L. Galloway
SF:S. Johnson-R. Bullock
PF:B. Griffin-H. Ellenson
C: A. Drummond-FA

ORL does this because.

- they actually have a point guard who can run an offense. Since Jameer Nelson, the Magic have never had decent point guard play. With Jeff Teague, Steve Clifford gets a veteran to run his offense.

Toronto trades two all stars for a younger more expensive worse version of derozan, a average big ( they don't need) and two weak picks?

The Pistons trade two bad contracts and get Lowry?

swapping wiggins for derozan does do anything to make KAT happier about his role on offense, he should be their first priority.

Raptors say no. They give up two allstars for a weak/ expensive shooter, back up center ( which they font need) and a low pick?

Toronto is not giving up Derozan for that, especially when you throw in Lowry. Both those guys have reasonable contracts, they can do better. I will agree that they might explore rebuild mode, but will wait on what Lebron does. If he leaves the East, they stay in tact. Also, like how you stated the mavericks line-up. funny.
