Kennard made available for trade by the Pistons surprises me. I would've thought that by tearing down the roster that he, Sekou Doumbouya, and Christian Wood would be the start of the rebuilding nucleus for the future Pistons. I'm sure that Pistons fans are not please by the FO's decision. At least for now.

AG to Minnesota is an interesting one. RoCo is in the middle of this rumor. Thing is I'm wondering what type of deal can be struck between these two teams. Salary wise, Crabbe and rookie Jaylen Nowell would match. However, I severely doubt that's who the Magic are seeking from Minnesota.

DSJ value is very low due to the year the Knicks are having. I do have him going to Minnesota or Detroit as they do need a change at the PG position and DJS needs a major change of scenery from the Knicks.

As for Bogi to the Lakers, that's never going to happen. Sacramento will need to get off Bogi's contract due to his RFA status. The problem for them is to find a new team for Bogi who's willing to take a chance on his status and hope he's can be retain in the off-season.


AG to MIN would probably have to be a 3-team trade to happen. I'm not sure what that would ultimately look like though.


I can see a potential three way if an AG to Minnesota is to happen. My thing is with what assets they have that could be appealing to another team? Wiggins? Okogie? I doubt they will be moving Culver right now.

For the Wolves, I'm questioning the fit and how does the move help KAT?

If the Wolves fail to acquire a player with skills and alpha male tendencies to supplant KAT as the number 1 option for the team, The Wolves need to plan to move KAT within a couple of years.


I wonder if OKC moving Gallinari would interest Orlando. OKC gets rebuilding pieces, Orlando gets Gallinari, and MIN gets Gordon. You'd have to balance things out but that would be the core of the trade. Then MIN could move Gordon+Covington for DeAngelo Russell. Curry/Klay/Covington/Gordon/Green with a top 4 pick, Pascall, and a couple other depth pieces would be crazy.

That was a thought that I was thinking about earlier in January. Gallo would give the Magic a boost shot on offense. The Magic are in the basement when it comes to offensive ranks. With the injuries happening to Issac this season and the Magic struggling on offense this season, they need to make some moves around the offense.

A simple swap of AG for Gallo and a future 1st 2022 may suffice I suppose.
