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.
Los Angeles Lakers Receive:
Orlando Magic Receive:
Why Orlando would make this trade: Orlando doesn’t have shooters. Orlando needs shooters. See where I’m going with this?
Why Dallas would make this trade: The Lakers messed up on the Timofey Mozgov contract. We can all acknowledge that. Here’s their chance to solve that by getting Vucevic on a good contract. Combined, the duo at $29 million or so per year is fine.
