GS trade - (Wiggins, #2, 15m TE) for (Jonas, Carter JR, Winslow, Tyus, GS 2024)
They beef up their front court with Jonas & Carter 2 entirely different playing styles, net a defensive SF/secondary playmaker big wing defender in Winslow, a steady backup PG in Tyus & control back of their 2024 pick where they could be in a rebuild while shedding some salary commitment off Wiggins contract.
Bulls trade - (Carter JR, Otto Porter, #4) for (Wiggins, #2 (Ball))
Memphis trade - (Jonas, Winslow, Tyus, GS 2024) for (15m TE, Porter expiring, #4 Onyeka)
Trading all the serviceable vets for a trade exception, expiring & a rookie replacement #4 Onyeka, it breaks down Memphis roster into a more tank worthy path.. I say, if you pick a direction, commit to it. Memphis draft their wing in 2021.
Onyeka /Jontay / Dieng
3J / Clarke
Anderson / Josh
Dillon / Allen
Ja / Melton
See if some team would offer up a pick for the 15m TE (Suns #10?) where I'd draft Patrick Williams. I know Suns are more interested in making the playoffs than developing another mid range pick. Think they'd prioritize resigning Ayton & targeting a FA that can help now as rumored. This would give them a need to shed salary.
I think Tyus is very underrated for our team. We desperately need his ability to run the bench so I'd fight hard to replace him with Anderson or even Brooks instead even if we have to add a few 2nds.
