Moves for Cavs to get Bron to opt in:

OKC--Thompson & Korver

Memphis--Hill #8
Cleve--Parsons #4

Charlotte--Love & JR
Cleve--Walker & Batum

For Cleveland, they take on Batum and Parsons, but get Kemba and #4. Kemba, Bron, Osman, Batum, Melo give them good length, scoring on perimeter. Melo is Melo, but he can give them some scoring when Bron and Walker are on the bench. At #4, the can look at Bagley, Doncic, Jackson, Bamba, Porter Jr.

For OKC, Melo did not fit. Thompson and Korver would help their bench and Korver is the kind of spot up player that fits better with Westbrook.

For Charlotte it may not seem like the best haul for Walker, but you get you all star in Love and someone to take Batum. JR Smith has a team buy-out option in 2019, so he gives them a nice trade chip next summer.

For Memphis, dropping four spots to dump Parson is worth it. Hill has a 1 million dollar team buy-out next summer.

They only move down 4 spots and rid themselves of the Parsons contract. George Hill has essentially 1 year remaining. A BR rumor suggested they should trade with clippers. 12 and Harris for 4 and Parsons. I think it is very plausible for Memphis to trade down in the lottery in order to dump Parsons.

Yes the clipprrs trade makes sense. A wing like harris helps the grizzlies. Hill is crappy and wiuldnt start.

Trade has nothing to do with Hill. He is an expiring contract, and with the 1 million dollar buy-out, he would be a very nice trade chip. Again, it has nothing to do with him as a player, it is more about his contract.
