1. Cameron Johnson would be a sneaky trade target for Philly

Fresh off trading Mikal Bridges away for a king-sized ransom, the Brooklyn Nets are pivoting hard toward a much-needed and long overdue rebuild in anticipation of a talent-filled 2025 NBA Draft class. The outturn of that, of course, is a brewing demolition job to further improve their prospects, especially assets-wise.

After Bridges, another name that would instantly net the Nets with a handsome return is Cameron Johnson, who is now widely believed to be a prime candidate to be moved via trade this offseason. The 76ers have yet to register interest thanks to their ambitious targets, but there probably aren’t many who won’t be enthused about the possibility of him filling the team’s forward void.

A highly valued low-usage, two-way forward, Johnson would quickly give Philadelphia a steady hand at the position. He plays with a lot of fluidity on offense thanks to his career 39.2 percent rate from three-point range, and his length can bother anyone on defense. There’s nothing to truly dislike about his on-court persona.
