OKC/Charlotte/Minnesota - Dec 15th

Ill offer this idea for:
-OKC to get back a younger piece and cap flexibility for Paul
-Charlotte gets a veteran starting PG while getting more 2020 cap space and a 1st
-Minnesota swaps out a Wiggins/Teague for Batum/Rozier as Minnesota alters its core to get flexibility long term

To OKC (Trade Paul, Patterson, 2nd)
-Andrew Wiggins (4 years, $122 milion)
-Jeff Teague (1 year, $19 million: buyout/waive)

To Charlotte (Trade Rozier, Batum)
-Chris Paul (3 years, $124 million)
-Patrick Patterson (1 year, $5.7 million)
-2021 Minnesota 1st round pick (some form of protection)

To Minnesota (Trade Teague, Wiggins)
-Terry Rozier (3 years, $58 million)
-Nic Batum (2 years, $52.7 milion)
-2021 OKC 2nd round pick


Why?
-OKC gets further 2020 cap flexibility by swapping Paul/Patterson for Wiggins/Teague. They can buyout/waive Teague to let Alexander and Schroder play majority of minutes while Teague can sign with contender

Alexander/Schroder/FA?
Roberson/Fergusson/Diallo
Wiggins/Bazley/Burton
Gallinari/Muscala/Nader
Adams/Noel/FA?

-Hornets land Paul as they swap out Rozier for Paul, include Batum to make money work and get a 1st for additional $ absorbed

Paul/FA?/Graham
Monk/Bacon/Martin
Miles/MKG/McDaniels
Williams/Washington/Patterson
Zeller/Hernangomez/Biyombo

-Minnesota clears out long term money by swapping PGs/SFs at the expense of a 2021 1st round pick while getting back a 2021 2nd.

Rozier/Napier/FA?
Cullver/Okogie/Graham
Batum/Layman/Diop
Covington/Vonleh/FA?
Towns/Dieng/Bell

If Paul is unhappy in OKC, things aren't going to be better in Charlotte. That's a bad team without Kemba. Plus, the F.O. has to deal with a fan base that is immediately going to ask why they didn't max Kemba if they're willing to eat Paul's contract.

Well the ability to dump Batum and get a 1st for acquiring Paul instead of supermaxing Walker :)

Wolves want flexibility in the next 2 years and this actually takes that away.

This is a no go for Minnesota.

Definite no from wolves. Both Batum and Rozier are bad contracts. While it shortens Wiggins contract it costs an important first and adds to cap issues in 2020-2021. Dont think I'd do wiggins and teague for batum and rozier much less add a first.
