Charlotte Hornets Receive: F Michael Porter Jr.
Denver Nuggets Receive: F/C Pascal Siakam, F Gordon Hayward
Toronto Raptors Receive: G Jamal Murray, 2023 First-Round Pick (DEN via CHA), 2024 First-Round Pick (Swap – DEN), 2026 First-Round Pick (Swap – DEN), 2029 First-Round Pick (DEN)

The Charlotte Hornets were likely to retain Miles Bridges in restricted free agency. For horrific reasons we won’t detail here, that’s no longer the case. Could they be in the market for his replacement?

If so, the 24-year-old Michael Porter Jr. could be perfect. No, he’s not as athletic as Bridges, and yes, he’s an injury risk. He’s also, by a considerable margin, a better shooter than Bridges is, or probably ever will be.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors nab a similar Murray-and-picks package for Siakam here. If they are interested in dealing their star wing, it’s likely due to his potential redundancy with reigning Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes. Murray is a bit closer to Barnes in age, and ought to be more complimentary.

Finally, the Denver Nuggets do well to additionally add Hayward in this exchange. That’s why they’re forking over a little more draft capital than in the previous deals.
