    Bucks fan: Please comment on this suggested 3-team deal.

    BUCKS give: J.Henson, M.Dellavedova & T.Maker to Atlanta Hawks.
    BUCKS receive: N.Mirotic from the N.Orleans Pelicans and Jeremy Lin (!!!) from Atlanta

    Bucks then waive (but NOT stretch) the contract of Jeremy Lin. It practically means for the Bucks that they pay the contract of one out of Delly or Henson and then sign Mirotic with the other salary. The result is that the salaries of both Henson & Delly go off the books for the next (19/20) season.

    HAWKS give: Jeremy Lin to Bucks and Kent Bazemore to the Pelicans
    HAWKS receive: J. Henson, M. Dellavedova & T.Maker from the Bucks and S.Hill + a 1st from the Pelicans.

    Hawks then waive Henson, Delly & Hill and only keep Maker and the 1st round pick.

    This should be huge for the Hawks because they need to write in their books 45M for the 19/20 season so that they will avoid huge taxation... With this deal, they load 18M more than Bazemore's salary (Lin is on an expiring this season contract) on their books for the 19/20 season, plus get an asset and a 1st pick which is mainly what they are looking for on all their up to now deals.

    PELICANS give: Solomon Hill & a 1st to the Hawks, N.Mirotic to Bucks
    PELICANS receive: Kent Bazemore from the Hawks

    This should be great for the Pelicans too... Because Mirotic is on an expiring contract which they can't extend because they have to give a (generous) rise and extend Randle and Diallo, they also have to fill 9 (!!!) roster spots for next season, additionally they get rid of Hill's (bad) contract (which they are desperately trying to shop) and they get Kent Bazemore for who they are after but couldn't reach a deal for!

    It's all my creation trying to achieve a win-win-win 3- team deal, where Atlanta gets an additional 18M falling out of the sky in their books (additional to Bazemore's salary for next season) and the Pelicans get rid of Hill's contract so that they can get cap space to give a generous raise and extend Randle and Diallo, as well as fill the 9 empty roster spots that result for next season, as well as add a wing on Bazemore, and thus keep the team going...

    EDIT: It could be D.J. Wilson or Donte DiVincenzo suggested instead of Maker, but I thought that the Hawks would prefer a Center to add on the young core they develop.

    EDIT-2: I'm a marketing person who knows a lot about basketball, do you think I should apply for a job on an NBA front office?

    The deal proposed in the O/P, can be extended further as to include the Lakers, so that all 4 teams benefit even more:

    Atlanta would look to get back 3 assets and three picks, plus as much as possible to wright on their books for next season out of giving away the last two of their expiring contracts and Bazemore:

    Atlanta receives: Dellavedova, Hill, Deng and then two 2019 1st picks out of the Lakers and the Pistons & the 2019 2nd pick from the Bucks, plus add Zubac, DDV & D.J. Wilson + add 29M more than Bazemore's salary on their books for 19/20 season.
    Atlanta gives: J.Lin to Lakers and D. Dedmon & K. Bazemore to Pistons

    Lakers are rumored to be interested in trading Deng + a 1st pick + an asset for (expiring) Lin, but including the asset makes the deal impossible... Additionally the Lakers (meaning Lebron) would prefer Bledsoe instead of Ball, but a "straight" trade falls outside NBA's 125% rule... With this deal both problems are solved and all the mentioned before becomes possible.

    Lakers receive: J. Lin & Eric Bledsoe
    Lakers give: L.Ball to Bucks & L.Deng, Zubac + 1st pick to the Hawks:

    Bucks receive: L. Ball & N.Mirotic
    Bucks give: Dellavedova, DDV & D.J. Wilson + 19's 2nd pick to Atlanda, E. Bledsoe to Lakers. Bucks additionally save 10M off their books from this season and 15M off the books from 19/20 season (if they decide to keep Ball & not extend Mirotic)

    Pistons receive: Dedmon & Bazemore
    Pistons give: Hill & 1st to Hawks, N.Mirotic to Bucks.

    Here is a "lighter" 3-team version of the same deal that doesn't involve the Lakers.

    1. Bucks give: Henson, Divicenzo & D.J. Wilson + a 2nd pick to the Hawks
    Bucks receive: N. Mirotic from Pelicans

    Pelicans give: N.Mirotic to Bucks, S.Hill + a 1st & a 2nd pick to Atlanta
    Pelicans receive: D. Dedmon & K. Bazemore from Atlanta
