Knicks Rumors: NY could be next to “shake things up” in the NBA Draft

The first NBA Draft trade happened yesterday afternoon, and the New York Knicks could be up next. Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the trade yesterday – The Memphis Grizzlies agreed to trade Jonas Valanciunas and 2021 picks 17 and 5 to New Orleans in exchange for Steven Adams, Eric Bledsoe, 2021 picks 10, 40, and a protected 2022 first-round pick via the Lakers. Rumors had been circulating that the Pelicans were looking to shop Bledsoe and their 10th pick in an effort to clear more cap space, and the Grizzlies were the team that pounced.

NBA free agency: Pelicans have space to pair Kyle Lowry and Zion Williamson, but other appealing options exist

The New Orleans Pelicans paid a steep price for their newfound cap flexibility. They moved down from No. 10 to No. 17 in a strong 2021 NBA Draft and gave up an extra first-round pick in the process, but it was well worth it to wipe the two worst contracts on the team off their books. With Steven Adams and Eric Bledsoe in New Orleans, the Pelicans were looking at no more than $13 million or so in cap space. After Monday's trade with the Memphis Grizzlies, they are closer to $37 million. Aside from Kawhi Leonard, they should have the spending power to sign any free agent in this class.

Cleveland Cavaliers: 2 realistic expectations for FA target Reggie Bullock

The 2021 NBA Draft is rapidly approaching here on Thursday night, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are set to pick third, and could very well land a potential superstar there. It appears that USC big Evan Mobley is the most likely possibility for Cleveland at that spot, although Gonzaga guard Jalen Suggs, and to a lesser extent, Florida State wing Scottie Barnes and G League Ignite wing Jonathan Kuminga could maybe be.
