Lakers get Beverley which I think is a decent move if they make some more moves. He won’t have to have main ball-handling responsibilities and can do dirty work and hit the 3.

If they can pull off the Westbrook + FRP(s) for Hield and Turner then they are in a decent spot but still reliant on health of AD.

Getting a shooter in Hield helps and Turner can play the 5 to help Davis, especially in regular season.

Beverley
Hield
Lebron
Davis
Turner

That’s pretty good overall and health permitting. That lineup has enough about it in terms of shooting and D to be a decent threat. Again, health permitting.

Beverly and Lebron, clash of character
Interesting move

Disappointing for Chet and OKC

You reckon? They should be a playoff team for the next little while at least. Not exactly sure when the picks fall.

Markanen isn’t a huge loss, Sexton was always leaving anyway as Cavs lowballed him and Agbaji was promising but still a mid first rounder essentially.

It keeps them relevant but Donovan will not lead them anywhere

It also includes a sign and trade for Sexton who is getting 4 years 72 million.

They needed a go-to scorer and Mitchell is still very young with quite a lot of playoff experience. Cavs will always find it tough to win tbh but don’t know that this is a fleecing as such

finally, a trade/news not about the Lakers
