PISTONS get WHITESIDE and 2nd rnd from MAVS via GSW


BLAZERS get POWELL, LEE, and 2nd rnd from Mavs via UTAH

PISTONS get a decent replacement for Drummond who is likely to opt out. Add in GSW pick for deal.

BLAZERS get rid of Whitesiide and get cap relief as well as expiring contract OF LEE and 2nd. Powell gives quality young player.

Mavs get stronger center and opportunity to sign DRUMMOND to long term deal if he fits..

I just don’t see the point of dumping Drummond unless they’re getting some kind of decent asset back. You can tank with him, he’s either a free agent or only has a year left if he opts in, and he’s still a pretty good player.

How is that cap relief for Portland when Whiteside is on a big expiring while Powell has few more years left. And Pistons say no anyway. Remove them from the deal.

This isn't crazy. Whiteside and Drummond are kind of the same player, so DET gets 2nd rounder for Drummond essentially. With his contract that may be the best they can do. Portland is planning for next year, so Powell and 2nd rounder would be nice. Not sure they could get that pick and Powell though. For Dallas it may be worth trying to a traditinal center to see how that works with Luka and Kristaps.
