If Brooklyn moves Shamet, you’d think that the club would be looking for shooting. Shamet, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is extension eligible this offseason, shot 41 percent from the floor last season. It’s worth noting that the Knicks had interest in acquiring Shamet in the trade that sent Marcus Morris Sr. to the Clippers. New York could send Brooklyn pick No. 19 or No. 21 and absorb Shamet’s deal into cap space (depending on the timing of the trade). The Pelicans, owners of the No. 17 pick, also have been interested in Shamet, per sources.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have shown more willingness to move out of the top-3 than either the Detroit Pistons or Houston Rockets. The Cavaliers are further along in their hopes of competing for a playoff spot than either the Pistons or Rockets. If the Oklahoma City Thunder are able to move up, the Cavaliers are the most likely trade partner. The question is whether the Thunder would agree to send Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in a package for No. 3. “I’d personally stay where I’m at and take Evan Mobley or Jalen Green,” one GM said. “As much as I love Shai, he’s not quite at the same level those guys are and the Cavs really need a star.”
Caruso projects to perform at the level of a $7.5 million player, according to ProFitX. His performance in 2020-21 was that of an $8.9 million player, which would make a $7.5 million salary very team-friendly for the Lakers. They have his Bird rights so they can match any offer he gets, but his projected salary range makes a lot of sense for the Lakers considering they could have a very high luxury tax bill if they re-sign most of their free agents.

After making the minimum salary in his first two years, Talen Horton-Tucker is set to get a big raise. ProFitX projects Horton-Tucker’s production next season to that of a $11.2 million player, which would technically make him a bargain since he can’t earn that amount next season. His starting salary in 2020-21 cannot be greater than either the projected $10.5 million the Lakers can offer him via Early Bird rights, or the $9.5 million NT-MLE other teams are limited to offering him due to the Gilbert Arenas Provision.
