Milwaukee Bucks

Here, the Pelicans land an all-star wing in Khris Middleton who is a free agent this summer, but literally just went on the record saying he doesn’t mind being in a small market. This would encourage the Pelicans that they could re-sign Middleton in free agency.

Malcolm Brogdon is the former Rookie of the Year winner and is a free agent this summer as well, but he’s restricted, meaning the Pelicans could match any offer another team sends his way, making him easy to re-sign.

Thon Maker is an enigma, but he wants out of Milwaukee anyway, so might as well add him to the mix. He could still have untapped potential that could benefit New Orleans in the frontcourt.

Snell makes the money work for this deal, and the two future first round draft picks ensure the Pelicans are taken care of for years to come.
