Apparently Lowe mentioned a couple weeks ago and another guy mentioned today that SGA could potentially be available since OKC is still in a full rebuild and SGA doesn't quite fit the timeline with his new contract coming up before too long. If that is the case then I don't think they'd want JJJ and we certainly aren't including Ja, but could we cobble together our assets and make something happen?
Some package of players to the Warriors for Wiseman or #7, our picks and the UTA pick to OKC, maybe a player or two who can be flipped as well to OKC or to another team for assets to OKC.
GSW in: Anderson, Melton, Tillman, #17
GSW out: Wiseman, Looney, low salary guy of their choice, #14
OKC in: Jones, #4, #17, 2022 MEM 1st, 2024 MEM 1st, 2022 UTA 1st, 2024 GSW 1st, 2022 TOR 1st (Top 18, two 2nds)
OKC out: SGA, #6
MEM in: SGA, Looney, Baynes
MEM out: Jones, Anderson, Melton, Tillman, JV, #14, 2022 MEM 1st, 2024 MEM 1st, 2022 UTA 1st, 2024 GSW 1st
TOR in: Wiseman, #6, JV
TOR out: #4, Baynes, Hood, Yuta, 2022 TOR 1st (Top 18 protected, two 2nds)
For the Warriors, Tillman is likely an immediate upgrade on Wiseman but a smidge though I expect Wiseman to surpass him in a year or so. They also get Melton and Anderson who can immediately contribute for them plus Melton is young enough to be a long term piece as well.
For OKC they get one of the elite 4 guys in this draft and reset the clock. I have SGA as worth more than #4 straight up and Toronto could potentially ante up and try to take SGA themselves, but in this deal OKC gets 6 additional 1sts. The Toronto pick will either be late or be 2nds. The Memphis picks are probably a little outside the lottery. The Utah 1st is probably late. But the GSW pick could be decent and 14 in this draft is fairly okay. I don't know if they would want to do that or have say #4, #5, and a future Toronto 1st or two. Memphis could then sweeten the deal with Clarke or Bane. The hail mary is eating Kemba's deal, but with SGA and JJJ needing contracts our cap sheet would be horrible. Jones would be a good PG for OKC as they rebuild since he will be able to control the game and help their young guys develop while not being good enough to hurt the tank. I'm sure we could redo the deal where they keep 6 as well so that they get Barnes to pair with their Top 4 pick.
Memphis tries to form a core of Ja/SGA/JJJ. We also have additional cap space from these deals.
Toronto gets a high level center prospect, a win-now center in JV, and still get a high draft pick this draft.
