    True (although we get younger with every trade). Probably better to sit on our guys and trade them at next season's deadline. Kick that can down the road.

    Grant for DLo, Vanderbilt, and Lakers 2029 first (+2031 swap?) looks like a good deal

    especially if DLo can be moved to a 3rd team and another pick routed to Portland

    The more I think about it, Vanderbilt is the same player that we have in Camara. We do not want two of them.
    I think Hachimura is a younger cheaper version of Grant. He did shoot 42% last year from 3.
    They do not want to give up both their firsts so take one plus Knecht.
    Add Vincent for salary purposes and trade him.

    I thought Suggs was their lead guard.

    Disagree. You can never have too many of that kind of player.

    He's definitely more SG than PG.

    I guess for depth chart purposes, but certainly not two of them on the court at the same time.

    Basically both Franz Wagner and Banchero are point forwards.

    KCP is a good upgrade for their offense, they have a 3P outlet for PB to pass to. They do need a better play-maker, but I am not sure I would sell the farm for Ant, if I was their FO.

    Orlando still have to replace Fultz, and I don't think they like Cole Anthony that much, so MAYBE there's hope?

    I thought Black was supposed to be good?

    Well _I_ think so, but he's definitely not going to do much to help their scoring problems.

    But you're right - probably the plan is to give him the surplus minutes. Goddamnit.

    Why are you showing my stats from a rookie? They are meaningless going forward. But I will say I was not enthused with getting him for Ant, I was just repeating what others were saying.

    Great size, good handles, needs the ball to be effective which makes him a PG only, can't really use him if he is not handles the ball - which probably means he will be a backup PG for his career. Good defense.

    Kind of reminds you of Stephon Castle with less defense and can not be played off the ball. On the cheap as a backup guard, sure, why not. Not sure he is worth getting that excited about otherwise.

    Grant to the Lakers makes a ton of sense until you realize the two teams haven’t made a trade since Reagan was in office
