Answer is no. So why in the hell would you trade a young player like WCJ whom has shown promise for a 30+ year old who has a history of injuries and is going to be declining?
he'd be the best Player on the Team
he'd make the Team relevant and attractive for others
he's fun to watch
he could share some time with Lauri, give him more rest.
Unless AD or Giannis signs here, there seems to be no interest in any Star Player from some of you guys.
I would love to trade Carter and piles of trash for Griffin but salary wise need Lavine to complete the trade.
Griffin is like getting Butler but with more FA attraction due to the personality, Not MVP caliber but top 15 player at the very worst.
Expect him to be a top 20 player until the end of his contract which is a bargain considering you have to pay 40 mil for those type of players.
Pair Griffin with Giannis/AD and you have a squad in 2021. They can sell Lauri super high if he doesnt fit the long term plan for a borderline all star wing as well. Any team with Carter/AD is top 5 front-court and top 10 defense at worst.
Thats minimum 2nd round team right there with Griffin/AD combining at least 50 pts per game.
