Aaron Gordon, Birch, our 1st for Oubre, Baynes, and your 1st.

Sorry, But We'll pass on this one. Oubre for Gordon is about equal value. Oubre offers offensive versatility, And Gordon offers defensive versatility. Two similar players, But with opposing complimentary skillsets. However
, Birch unfortunately would be a massive downgrade for us from Baynes. And then we are moving back 6 spots in the draft to downgrade from Baynes, and trade similar value players in an offense for defense swap? Also with no additional assets or incentive coming back? Just doesn't seem all that palatable honestly man.
If we do in fact decide that we will move Oubre, Then maybe something along these lines?
1- Phoenix/ Orlando/ Boston
Phoenix also swaps the 10th pick for the 17th and 26th picks.
17- Saddiq Bey or Jalen Smith.
26- Daniel Oturu or Vernon Carey.
2- Phoenix/ Minnesota/ Orlando
*** Phoenix gets back Omari Spellman/ James Johnson/ 16th/ 33rd picks
3- Phoenix/ Orlando/ Chicago
***Phoenix sends the 10th pick to Orlando. And Orlando sends their 15th pick to Chicago.
*** 4- [bPhoenix/Orlando/Philly/NewYorkhttp://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y7lf77ng
[/b]********( awesome trade value wise across the board)****.
Tobias Harris/ Wayne Ellington. Tobias will be an amazing offensive compliment to Isaac's defense. And Ellington gives them a 40% 3pt shooter on a cheaper/ shorter contract.
Massive cap savings from moving BOTH Horford and Harris. They also get Aaron Gordon, for a more athletic defensive fit next to Embiid. And additional solid perimeter shooting in Ross. And a solid backup 4/5 in Gibson. But above all, This gives them HUGE cap savings. ***( They can perhaps trade Gordon for to Charlotte for Rozier around the deadline too). And will have the money to now pursue a Gallinari or Whoever?
New York gets-
Al Horford *( A big name versatile defensive 3 and D 4) at a position of need. And they also get Oubre, Who is a perfect fit for the big bright lights and flashiness of New York! They can use their top 6 pick on a great point guard, and now they easily have a really competitive playoff level team in the East!
Phoenix does give up a core piece in Oubre, But gets back:
- Julius Randle. A productive starting level 4 that's averaging close to a double/double. And is on an expiring contract, So he won't affect our long term plans.
- James Ennis. A veteran 2/3 Who is a versatile, pesky, lockdown defender with good size at 6'6 and who is shooting close to 36% from three, And is on a minimal expiring contract.
- New York's UNPROTECTED Dallas 2021 first round pick.
10- Draft Kira Lewis or Grant Riller or Cole Anthony.
22- Draft Tyler Bey or Paul Reed or Jalen Smith.
5- Phoenix/ Orlando/ Washington
***Phoenix gets- Washingtons' 37th pick.
37- Draft Reggie Perry (** Bam Adebayo 2.0).
