The desert mirage of NBA trades: when ****** trades happen that make no sense, we convince ourselves that there’s a master-plan that will come to fruition to make it all make sense. Or, my personal favorite: “we’re going to trade _______ at the draft!” Then it’s “oh we’ll wait until free-agency opens up,” then “before training camp,” then “we’ll make a deal at the deadline when other dominoes are falling,” then “oh we’ll trade them at the draft,” and then again “oh they’re an expiring contract so they’ll be a hot commodity at the deadline.”Gentle reminder: Markkanen can be aggregated in a trade in October. Markkanen, Beasley, Clarkson, etc. would interest the Lakers.
