Every day, Pick and Popovich will post one fake trade and explain why it makes sense for every team involved to make it. There are no parameters beyond fitting within the salary cap. Sometimes the trades will involve stars, others role players. They are not grounded in actual rumors, they just make sense on paper.
Chicago Bulls Receive:
Orlando Magic Receive:
Why Orlando would make this trade: Because they need a point guard who can shoot and Mills is ready for a bigger role than what he has in San Antonio. Plus, a combo forward who can pass like Diaw is always a nice piece.
Why San Antonio would make this trade: Because Vucevic can fill some of the scoring void that cost them their series with San Antonio. They’re the Spurs, they can always find a new backup point guard.
