Raptors receive: C Hassan Whiteside, SF/PF T.J. Warren, SG Troy Daniels
Heat receive: PF/C Serge Ibaka, SF/SG C.J. Miles, PG Emmanuel Mudiay
Suns receive: PG Goran Dragic, SF/SG Norman Powell, SG/PG Ron Baker
Knicks receive: C Tyson Chandler, 2021 2nd Round Pick (from TOR), 2020 2nd Round Pick (from PHO)

*Raps do this to get a star center along with Kawhi and Lowry. Get a solid two-way Forward off the bench in Warren and three point shooter in Daniels.
*Heat do this to get rid of Whiteside and Dragic and commit to a rebuild (Ik most don't agree, but they aren't getting anywhere in the east and cap prevents them from doing so). Get rid of Whiteside to open up the 5 spot to Adebayo and Olynk. Another three point shooter in Miles to make them dangerous along with Ellington, waiters, and Richardson. Get a young guard in Mudiay who could finally break out.
*Suns do this to get an all star guard in a Dragic (yes he comes back). But this late in the off-season, you need to make a sacrifice to get a star guard, which is why they take Powell's contract. But clearing up warren from the crowded Small Forward spot and is paid less than warren will not hurt that much. Get baker who could help with point guard duties off then bench if Okobo doesn't do a great job.
*Knicks do this to clear their crowded backcourt, open up playing time for Ntilkina, Burke, THJ, and Hezonja. Get rid of baker and get back an expiring contract in Chandler, who could or could not contribute. But they mainly do this for the two second rounders because I doubt they could get a first for Mudiay since he's expiring. This move is really to clear up backcourt, Ik their return is pretty rubbish but it doesn't hurt since the money clears after the season and Knicks aren't real contenders with porzingis out still and not having enough talent. They wait for Next season to sign superstars if they could

Whitesides isn't a star and is overpaid.
