Lightbulb Trade Scenario: Conley and Gasol for Thompson, Brooklyn Pick + filler contracts

Would both teams do it? Potential lineup

Conley/Rose
Thomas/Wade
Lebron/Korver
Love/Crowder
Gasol

Putting aside the fact that Memphis would tell the Cavs to go **** themselves, Conley + Gasol will be making ~$52M this season. TT is going to be making ~$17M.

Why? You wanna give LeBron the same supporting cast MJ had from 1996-1998?

Worked for Snow/AI. Thomas would make a natural SG with a good defensive PG on the court.

Rebuild with Brooklyn's likely number #1 pick in the draft + their own lottery pick from tanking.

This trade is shit but for other reasons. Memphis would do it, Cavs wouldn't. You could get way more than two guys on the wrong side of 30 making all of that money for that pick.

Why is it the likely #1 pick?

Even if the Nets lost 82 games and got the most ping pong balls, there's a 75% chance it wouldn't be the #1 pick... thus, actually, it is unlikely that it is the #1 pick.

Aside from that, you're talking about gutting Memphis' team and going into a full rebuild... and honestly they have no shot at winning a title in the next few years because of the climate around the league with their current roster, but surely there is a better way to do it than giving up both of your stars for... a top 5 lottery pick... you gotta get multiples for each of them if you're cutting them loose and dump as much dead weight as possible rather than taking on dead weight.

Not to mention the implication for Cleveland... if LBJ leaves you are then locked into Conley and Gasol... back before the Kyrie trade when Cleveland's options were limited, I thought it would be a great trade of Kyrie + filler + Thompson for those two, but given how the roster has shaped up, the trade doesn't make any sense from Cleveland's perspective, either.

Try again.

Memphis wouldn't do it. What? No. Just no. Imagine Tristan Thompson being the second best(or best LMAO) player on your team and then you might start to realize why he's not even worth Gasol in a standalone deal, let alone Gasol + Conley.
