    I like this trade. Good fit and hopefully he can stay healthy.

    It is pretty crazy to see something that many have said should happen...actually happen!

    I think that's fair for everyone involved, but if Lauri can get consistent shots/minutes, that's a steal for CLE.

    Nance was essentially best case scenario in a trade for DJJ. Don’t like giving up first rounders but it’s lottery protected and Olshey does better in the second round anyway. Nance is a great fit. We got two great defenders at the forward spot now with Nurk anchoring.

    Although it would be nice to have a first round pick SOMETIME in the future....

    Now all we need is a real backup PG. And maybe one more player taller than 6'9"

    1--Dame/CJ/Norm/RoCo/Nurk

    2--Ant/Little/Nance/Zeller

    3--Mclemore/Elleby/Snell/Brown

    I still want a backup PG and a third center.

    Markkanen and Allen seem like a perfect combo.

    Still looks a bit imbalanced to me:

    Guards: Dame/CJ/Simons
    Wings: Powell/Roco/Nas
    Bigs: Nurk/Nance/Zeller

    There's your effective 9 man rotation with Snell/McLemore on the deep bench. Begging for size though.

    Dame / Ant
    CJ / ?
    Powell / Nas
    Roco / Nance
    Nurk/ Zeller

    Nance has played and excelled as a small ball center. I think I’d rather get a point, but who’s available?

    We can also use our second two way on a more traditional big for depth.

    They got Mobley though. And i don't get why pay Lauri so much. I doubt he had anything close to that on the table since Bulls didn't want him and other teams didn't have cap space. It's strange deal for me.
