Grade the trade: Would the Wizards agree to the deal?

Last but not least are the Washington Wizards, who are the key to a potential four-team deal. They would ultimately collect several young players from each team: Reed, Jovic, and Jerome, plus two first-round picks, including the 16th pick in this year's draft.

They may not get any big-name players, but those first-round picks would be worthwhile for the rebuilding Wizards, who don't have nearly as many picks stockpiled as other teams in their position. As a result, a deal like this would allow them to catch up, and by moving on from Kuzma, they would make themselves worse.

That might not seem like a good thing considering they were the second-worst team in the NBA this season, but the 2025 draft has Cooper Flagg and doing so may make them a bottom-three team. Kuzma might be worth at least one first-round pick, so they would get more than fair value for one of their best players in the deal.

Based on that, the Wizards would probably agree to the deal. Overall, despite a lot of moving parts, each team would probably agree to the proposed deal.
