Two trades in the deadline

Milwaukee: Nene, Chriss, Anthony
Washington: Connaughton, Wood, HOU 2019 FRP (top 15 protected)
Houston: Dekker, Smith, Green


Ariza for Snell, WAS 2020 and 2021 SRPs back, WAS cash back

Milwaukee upgrade at backup SF with exp Ariza and unload Snell.

Washington gets for that their two SRPs and their cash back from Milwaukee and two rotation players tied with min contracts. They avoid the tax and get a FRP from Houston.

Rockets get three exp players that can immediately help their rotation while sending their trash to Milwaukee. Nene's PO adds value to part from their mid-low FRP.

With the second trade, why is washington taking on Snell's additional years if salary when Wall's super max extension kicks in next year? Fianancially, washington can't and won't be looking for deals like this. Remember washington traded Oubre because they weren't going to be able to resign him (Oubre will get something in the $12-$15 per year range) . Taking on Snell would be the same thing as paying Oubre. ain't happening.

So, why would Milwaukee do the 1st one?

I think it's obvious that there are two trades here because Ariza can be traded combined with another player only after the deadline. It's one trade split in two just for functional reasons.
