Pre-draft dreams


Since we're a little over a week from the draft, I figured I'd throw out a dream scenario.

1. Cavs - Alex Len, C, Maryland
2. Magic - Ben McLemore, SG, Kansas
3. TRADE Suns - Nerlens Noel, C, Kentucky
4. Bobcats - Anthony Bennett, PF, UNLV
5. TRADE Wizards - Otto Porter, SF, Georgetown

Wizards give: 3rd pick, 38th pick, 54th pick, Jan Vessley, Trevor Booker,
Wizards receive: 5th pick, Derrick Williams


Suns give: 5th pick, 30th pick, Marcin Gortat
Suns receive: 3rd pick, 26th Pick, 38th pick, Jan Vessley, Trevor Booker


Twolves give: Derrick Williams, 26th pick
Twolves receive: Marcin Gortat, 30th Pick, 54th pick



So the Wizards unload some cap onto the Suns, give away the 2nd rounders, and swap picks with the Suns. The Suns don't mind the cap hit because they get their center of the future and move up from the 30th pick to round out the draft (I imagine Giannis Adetokunbo or Jamaal Franklin) and all they lose is Gortat. The Twolves move a player that has a hard time fitting in the roster and replace soon to be Free Agent, Nikola Pekovic. Even if they are able to keep Pekovic, it gets rid of a player they have little use for in favor of a player that has a shorter contract and can play in their rotation. This trade allows the Twolves to use their 9th pick to address SG/SF. With the 30th, they can take a flyer on a project like Mike Muscala, Jeff Withey, Rudy Gobert, or get a SF. I think this improves all three teams without taking advantage of any of them.

Starting 5:
Wizards: Wall, Beal, Porter, Williams, Nene

Suns: Dragic, Johnson, Beasley/26th pick, Scola, Noel

Twolves: Rubio, Roy/9th pick, Kirilenko/9th pick, Love, Pekovic/Gortat



Hopefully y'all agree that this is fair and would benefit the Wizards.
