Utah is a terrific long term fit for Green. Sessions upgrades their PG position. They get value at positions of need for Millsap before he walks.
Charlotte is very guard heavy and needs front line help. Bass is a major offensive upgrade to their frontcourt, and rotates with Bismark B. They also get veteran leadership and scoring from Terry, while ridding themselves of Gordon, who makes way too much $$ for the relatively limited minutes he's playing there. They reduce both short and long term money.
Millsap is a major upgrade at the 4 for Boston (who intends to sign him in / before the offseason). Gordon remains one of the best shooters in the game -- he opens up the floor and feeds off Rondo penetration. Taylor's a nice young rotational wing who can play behind Pierce, defend and hit two or three 3s a game on the 2nd unit. Bradley starts at the 2, but can be eased back over time with Gordon in the fold. Ben is also a pretty ideal inside-outside compliment to Sully on the 2nd unit.
