Impact (and no surprise) of the Josh Hart $12.96M contract guaranteed in Portland: 💰 $105M in guaranteed contracts 🏀Over the cap because of the free agent holds of Simons and Nurkic 💰Flexibility to sign both players and still use the full $10.5M midlevel exception

Detroit swaps 2022 second-round picks -- getting 36 for 46 -- with Portland, too. Denver gets a 2025 second-round pick back from Portland, and Portland sends the most favorable 2026 second-round pick between Portland and New Orleans to Detroit, sources said.
