I donít see anyone wanting to trade a pick for  their overpaid underachievers

Honestly don't see any teams in the Top-5 trading it for Lowry or DeRozan.

That said, I could see any of Chicago, Orlando, NYK or Cleveland trading the pick + some salary for DeRozan. Like if CLE is told Lebron will stay if they add a star guard, they'd explore this. Or maybe NYK willing to trade #9 + Ntilikina in package for DeRozan/Lowry (they are desperate for stars and hoping for more revenue via playoff experiences and more national spotlight).

If PHI don't feel they can land a Lebron or George, maybe later on they flip their 10th pick + players for Lowry/DeRozan.

I think it's unlikely still but not an impossible scenario.

I could see Memphis being interested, assuming they want to return to the playoffs

I can see Cleveland trading the #8 and salary for either Lowry or DeRozan to convince Lebron to come back for another run at a title. That is if Toronto has decided they can't go any farther with their crew and are going to blow it up.

Not sure I see Toronto being ready to blow it up after their 59 win season. But can see Cleveland shopping the 8th pick for a star to add to Lebron. Of course, that's what they should have been doing at the deadline instead of trading for role players on bad contracts.

Probably wonít happen before the draft, as Philly has free agent ambitions, but I could see a trade based around Lowry for the number 10 pick if Toronto blows it up. Thatíd be good value for Toronto, and I like Lowry as a vet presence and good fit with the Philly roster.

That's an interesting idea, and people on the Twitter ;D were joking after the "series" between the Cavs and the Raptors that Derozan should go to Cleveland, lol, so seeing that actually happen would be pretty funny, imo.

My only question centers around as to who Toronto is possibly targeting, because if they're going to deal their franchise players, surely they would hope to get a potential star via the draft as a return, right? My gut says that Michael Porter Jr. guy, but I honestly have no idea :-\.

Definitely would not do that if I was the Sixers.  The Sixers have an opportunity to sign a top level free agent this offseason or next.  They shouldn't waste that opportunity on a player like Lowry who would not make them a contender.

Could open up a 3 team trade with Spurs and Knicks

Kawhi to Knicks

DeRozan + Frank to Spurs

9th pick + filler to Raptors

There is a lot of chatter around Philly doing a trade with Memphis themselves. I think their front office may come to the realization that Dallas and other teams have gone through over the years, just cause you have max free agent space, doesn't mean you end up with a max player.

Related the odds of Lebron Landing in Philly are now down to 10:1 along with Rockets. Only teams given a chance are Lakers at very very very favorites and Cleveland given a punchers chance.

Iím fine with that.

Raptors get worse.

Knicks get better but still arenít great. I think Kawhi is arguably top-3 but heís not going to carry a terrible team (and franchise) into contenders. He may not even be as explosive as Davis, who seems capable of putting up 50 points or 20 rebounds on any given night. Heís just as capable defensively as Kawhi imo and still they werenít a great team last season (despite losing Boogie and still sweeping the Blazers).

Good long-term move for the Knicks but probably best case scenario for us right now.

Spurs Get an all-star and pretty good prospect, they could do worse.

Raptors are obsessed with Shai Alexander. Local kid

Surprised they would be willing to trade even Derozan to draft him (per rumor)
