1. Cleveland CavaliersCleveland receives: Al Horford, 2022 second-round pick, 2023 second-round pickPhiladelphia receives: Kevin Love
This is the easiest trade on the board. His outlet passing alongside Simmons would create one of the best transition attacks in the NBA. Swapping Horford for Love only boosts what is already the sixth-best rebounding team in the NBA.
In Horford, Cleveland at least gets a center who makes more sense on a rebuilding roster than Love does.
4. Detroit PistonsDetroit receives: Al Horford, Mike Scott, 2022 first-round pick, 2020 second-round pick, 2021 second-round pickPhiladelphia receives: Blake Griffin, Luke Kennard
Kennard was almost traded for a first-round pick from the Phoenix Suns at the trade deadline before a disagreement over the pick’s protection sunk the deal.
5. Sacramento KingsSacramento receives: Al Horford, 2022 first-round pick, 2020 second-round pick, 2021 second-round pickPhiladelphia receives: Harrison Barnes, Nemanja Bjelica
This is the hardest sell of the five.
