Trade Scenarios and Poll

I have really enjoyed all the different takes generated by the Trailblazers 6+11 trade thread. Here are a bunch of blockbuster(ish) trade options with various degrees of likelihood--as well as what it would likely mean for our draft.

I've tried to be as realistic as I can push myself to be with these scenarios, but mainly I thought it would be great to compile a list some of the teams who are looking to trade starting caliber players or draft picks. Do any of these make sense for us? If you could only choose one, which would it be? None of these are particularly original, but I like the idea of having them all in one place to stew over...

Final caveat--if you think the proxy Wizards offer is unrealistic then assume some room for negotiation, i.e. you'd have to give up additional asset or peel one off. More of a starting point, if you'd want to draft Barnes over Beal, etc. to maximize the benefit of the trade. But mainly this is a look at being opportunistic--giving up cap space and Lewis' potentially desirable expiring contract to get quality talent at positions of need.
