The trade deadline is February 9th. Let’s use this thread for discussions about potential trades and throwing out trade ideas. Here are a couple that I have come up with:

We are currently 9th in the lottery standings and we are only a few games out from 5th/6th. Trading one or two of Beasley/Clarkson/Olynyk/Conley could really help accelerate us getting a better pick.

We should be looking to trade just about anyone imo. The only players I'd keep are Lauri, Walker, and Ochai.

EDIT: And I'd be fine with keeping Sexton too.

I’d want to get value for many of them.

JC, Beasley, Sexton and Vando should all be worth something. JC is the only one that has a near-term deadline to trade him or lose him.

Would be willing to take less than we should, or bad salary for any of Conley, Gay, THT or Olynyk as long as assets come back in the deal.

Yes to all of the except the last one. I don’t want that salary unless we’re getting something for it and in this case we wouldn’t.

Kennard has a team option on the last year of his deal. He’d make almost the same amount next year as we would owe Conley if we waived him due to his partial guarantee. It’s more about making us worse this year and maybe Kennard is a good fit for us. I do like him personally.

I think any clipper deal needs to be Covington coming back instead of Kennard. The last thing I want is to create an even larger log jam at sg.

Kennard would be a fantastic addition. Super efficient off ball shooter. Love that dude

Temple's contract next season in non-guaranteed. Hayes had a few good games a couple weeks and I think some Pels fans talked themselves back into him for a bit, but has come back to earth. Pels would probably want to move Devonte in a Beasley trade, but I would prefer to avoid that contract/SG logjam. We could give Hayes the 25 game burn to end the season, but I wouldn't see us retaining him unless it is for a near minimum.

Pels are stacked, but a Zion/Ingram injury is always looming and CJ is old. Probably would be a late 20's pick, but I could see injury bug making it be a ~20th overall pick in a draft where we have no picks most likely.
