NBA free agency 2019 had some major deals that changed the power rankings of many teams. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George going into the Clippers have given them the edge even to beat the Lakers team. Russel Westbrook going with the Rockets and forming a power duo with James Harden has also restored the balance of power.
There are some other NBA stars too whose deal might not bring large changes but are still important. The offseason will have still a few deals as most of the teams are looking for new players. Here are the possible trade deals for Steven Adams, Eric Gordon, Domantas Sabonis, and Andrew Wiggins in the NBA offseason.
Steven Adams – Atlanta Hawks
The Oklahoma City Thunder is totally rebuilding their team and has already traded out Paul George and Russel Westbrook. The next player to be traded out can be Steven Adams and the team of Atlanta Hawks looks interested in a deal. Adams is a capable defender and can be exchanged for younger players like Allen Crabbe and Jaylen Adams.
People don't understand that the Celtics aren't far behind the Sixers and Bucks in the East. They could easily make a move for Steven Adams or another legit center and suddenly become a serious threat in the East with their young talent and coaching.

Eric Gordon – Memphis Grizzlies
The Memphis Grizzlies managed to get Ja Morant as the No. 2 draft pick in the NBA trade lottery. Now they need someone with enough experience like Eric Gordon and pair him up with younger Ja Morant. Gordon had an average of more than 16 points in the last season with Houston Rockets. The two teams can agree for an exchange deal where Gordon can replace Kyle Korver in the Grizzlies.

Domantas Sabonis – San Antonio Spurs
Domantas Sabonis is a young talented player acquired by the Indiana Pacers when they traded out Paul George. The pacers were smart enough to pair Sabonis with Myles Turner and form a young power duo. The San Antonio Spurs team looks interested in having the 23-year-old power forward Sabonis to replace LaMarcus Aldridge. The Pacers could ask for Derrick White and Chimezie Metu in exchange and a deal can be made soon.
Andrew Wiggins – Toronto Raptors
Andrew Wiggins was once a great young player who was signed by the Minnesota Timberwolves for five-year max deal at $124 million. But his performance kind of declines and now the Timberwolves wants to trade him. Toronto Raptors need some high shooters who can replace Kawhi Leonard and Wiggins can be one of the names. The T-wolves can give out Serge Ibaka in exchange for the Raptors to ease the salary gap.
Andrew Wiggins is working hard this offseason. If he improves 3 simple things I think he will slowly win the fans over. #Timberwolves
1. Shot selection
2. Ball handling
3. Consistent defensive and rebounding effort
