But the teams involved might be better off if that weren't the case.Atlanta Hawks Get: Lance Stephenson, 2019 first-round pick (top-25 protected, conveys as a 2020 second-rounder if it doesn't convey in first year)Los Angeles Lakers Get: Dewayne DedmonMaybe the Atlanta Hawks are convinced they can overcome an eight-game deficit and sneak into the Eastern Conference's No. 8 seed. Wasting a year of LeBron James is not an option, even if the team struck out on all its bigger targets.Consider this a classic no-lose scenario for two teams with different motivations.Atlanta Hawks Get: Jon Leuer, Glenn Robinson III, 2019 first-round pick (lottery protected in 2019 and 2020)Detroit Pistons Get: DeAndre' Bembry, Vince Carter, Jeremy LinNope, we're not done raiding the Hawks roster.Even though they're coming close to adding Wayne Ellington on the buyout market, as reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Detroit Pistons have two more holes to fill while continuing to pursue a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.With a roster that comes out of the deadline ranked No. 7 in three-point attempts per game but No. 29 in three-point percentage, they need even more shooters. If he doesn't, it only costs a different expiring contract and a second-round pick.Taking a flier on Bender makes more sense than retaining Beverley right now, if only because the Clippers have a plethora of young guards to which they can hand more minutes. He's not a picture-perfect fit because of his occasional lapses on the less glamorous end and inability to hit more than 36.3 percent of his deep attempts, but giving the team another go-to scoring option makes him a massive upgrade over Ricky Rubio.That the package also comes with D.J. Augustin, who's continuing to play underrated, turnover-averse basketball and remains one of the league's deadliest-shooting floor generals, makes it an even more obvious decision for the Salt Lake City representatives.But back to Beale Street.Giving up Conley is painful, yes.
