    Blockbuster being discussed. Mitchell to nyk. Russell to Jazz and Clarkson, Beasley and Beverly to Lakers with lots of picks going to the Jazz.

    Jazz buyout Westbrick.

    If Westbrook is bought out will the Pelicans be interested?

    I think someone might be interested for the league minimum and Westbrick coming off the bench. His play was insanely erratic last year and was a main reason the Lakers sucked ass

    It might temporarily help the Lakers but if they have to give up unprotected 1sts in 2027 and 2029 then their future post LeBron is even more fucked. I'm guessing Ainge wouldn't take Westbrook without those two picks in the trade.

    If the Lakers are trading with Ainge, I don’t think the Lakers will come out as winners.

    On the surface, it does not seem like the Jazz will get any decent picks. The Knicks should be a lot better with Mitchell.
    Do they own anyone elses?

    I think they’re aiming to be in full rebuild mode so their plan is to suck ass and getting rid of Mitchell helps that goal.

    So this isn't a viable trade for a number of reasons. One is the Knicks would still have to send out another player in the deal to make salaries work but obviously they could make that work. I can't imagine that the Jazz want to take on Randle's long term contract given what they're trying to do.
    The Jazz could get a shitload of very decent picks though.

    This trade can't go through until August 30th because PatBev and Beasley were recently traded but it could go through after that. Again I don't see the Jazz being interested in Randle.

    They have 3 extra 1sts in 2023 (Dallas protected 1-10, Detroit protected 1-18 (protections decrease each year), and Washington protected 1-14 (last two the protections decrease each year it doesn't convey)). They also have the Milwaukee 2025 1st we traded Detroit for Grant (Duren trade). Plus all their own 1sts.

    Not quite the way I had structured it, but I was saying a couple weeks ago that a deal sending Westbrook to Utah made a lot of sense.
