UTA in: Gordon, Ross, #2
UTA out: Gobert
ORL in: MIN 1st, Lottery protected 2021 GSW 1st, Wiggins
ORL out: Gordon, Ross
GSW in: Gobert
GSW out: Wiggins, #2, MIN 1st, 2021 GSW 1st
You guys get your center of the future in Wiseman, PF of the future in Gordon, and Ross can play SG if Mitchell moves to PG. You also don't have to eat the Wiggins albatross and remain competitive to keep Mitchell happy. Conley can maybe be moved to someone for additional pieces.
GSW fans will scream no, but I think to get Gobert they have to have enough value to both get off Wiggins and pay for a franchise big.
If ORL is willing to take on Wiggins, this might work. The problem with Warriors/Gobert trades has been that Wiggins kills the deal for whomever would have to take him.
That said, I think the Jazz are likely to re-sign Gobert to a big deal against the lowered cap structure.
