Not sure what golden state would get. But as much as i like lavine, I think I would have to consider a deal like this. Levert probably fits better as a 3 balancing with white. Personally i would take wiseman then at two. Sign van fleet if somehow possible. Run with
Who is pushing this LeVert/LaVine swap? I keep hearing it and it is absurd to me. They're similar except LaVine is better in every category, with a better ceiling and a flashier game. It's like the equivalent when people were trying to sell me on a Crowder/pick-swap for Jimmy Butler.
If I'm moving Zach, it's either to upgrade (Beal, Harden) or to get back a young wing like Okoro or Hunter with cap-space. There's no way I'm downgrading that position by 7 ppg for a similar player just to move up two spots to take Wiseman. If #2/Wiseman are worth trading up for, then the Bulls have plenty of other assets IMO to get that done.
