Big transfer to the NBA! If the Draft attracts everyone’s attention this Thursday, June 22, the teams are not idle while waiting. Far from it, since the Celtics, Wizards and Clippers have agreed to make a transfer including in particular Kristaps Porzingis, Malcolm Brogdon and Marcus Morris.

Never believe yourself rested in the NBA.

A moment of inattention, and paf here is a transfer that falls.

This Wednesday evening, it’s Shams Charania from The Athletic who sent a nice bombshell on the market by revealing this transfer to three teams:

Celtics : Kristaps Porzingis
Clippers : Malcolm Brogdon
Wizards : Marcus Morris + Amir Coffey + pick 30 des Clippers

???? Transfer between Boston, Washington and the Clippers:

???? Kristaps Porzingis in Boston
???? Marcus Morris + Amir Coffey + Clippers pick 30 in Washington
???? Malcolm Brogdon at the Clippers

There are still rewards to add, but here is the basics!

For Boston, it is 6 years after having already tried to recover Porzingis that the deal finally takes place. Activating his player option for 36 million dollars, Kristaps allowed this transfer and he will therefore now join the army of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Author of an excellent season in Washington (23 points and 8 rebounds on average at 38% at three points), the giant could negotiate a new big contract but he will have to do it next year after helping Boston to get this famous championship title. Spacing and hoop protection will help the Celtics.

For the Clippers, he is a solid leader who comes to reinforce the group of Tyronn Lue. We knew Los Angeles on position 1, with Chris Paul in particular in the recent rumors of potential trade, CP3 will have to focus instead on the Lakers because Brogdon will join the team of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. While waiting to see if the Russell Westbrook file will be extended, Malcolm has just come out of a great season being named 6th man of the year. His end to the Playoffs campaign was missed, and the Celtics felt they needed to strengthen in another position, but Brogdon will have enough to make up for in Los Angeles.

Finally for the Wizards, it is a slightly better worked transfer which allows them this time to smile for a moment. Indeed, in exchange for a Kristaps Porzingis who was not going to spend the rest of his life in Washington, the Wizards recover from the future Draft pick and a Marcus Morris who could also be exchanged in the future for interesting pieces. The reconstruction is more than ever launched in the American capital, it is now Kyle Kuzma who is expected in ten days on the free agent market to see what new shirt Kuz will wear next season. Tanking tanking, here we come!

Boston is strengthening its racket in talent and its game in spacing, the Clippers are doing well by letting Morris go against a real useful replacement, and the Wizards continue their good balances. You know the music, next domino falling in a few hours before Draft 2023!
