Guys I'd consider at the MLE
Victor Oladipo (if we move one of our three guards in another move)
Kyle Anderson
Chris Boucher
Otto Porter Jr

Partial MLE, minimums
Nic Batum
Gary Harris
Thad Young
TJ Warren
Joe Ingles
Ricky Rubio
Danuel House
Damion Lee
I'd want either Boucher or Anderson with the MLE and Gary Harris plus one of Jalen Smith/Jarrett Culver/Josh Jackson on a minimum deal.

There are going to be a ton of guys on the trash heap as things start to percolate this summer. The Mavs gave Houston quite a few players in the Christian Wood deal. Are these guys better than our end of the bench dudes? That's why the trained professionals in the front office assess those things.

If I'm the Jazz, there's no way I'm trading one of the most durable stars in the league for Ben Simmons.
100% healthy and sane Ben Simmons, maybe. Whatever Ben has become in the last couple years, you're absolutely right.

Brooklyn is a mess right now.

LeBron leaves Cleveland. They become the worst team in the NBA. They draft Kyrie. Cleveland is the worst team in the NBA for a few years.

LeBron shows up, takes Kyrie to the Finals where he gets hurt, helps them win the title, then gets hurt again.

Kyrie then demands out and goes to Boston who actually have more playoff success without Kyrie than with him.

Then Kyrie goes to Brooklyn where he has completely failed.

Why does anybody care about Kyrie? He played a few amazing games in the 2016 playoffs and hit one amazing shot. Without LeBron, the guy is a massively overpaid loser. Worse than Westbrook.

I see the Twolves jettisoned Josh Okogie. He was taken one pick higher than Grayson Allen in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Never learned to shoot and his bully-ball "Im bigger and stronger than college players" style didnt translate.

There was a dead-ringer for him in this last draft and he went undrafted despite being very young and having a huge wingspan, Aminu Mohammed.
