Yep.

So at the end of the day Detroit turned #30 + #45 into a draft and stash + a 2 way contract player + a distant future 2nd + $3 mil in cash.

Its entirely within reasonable logic that the cash ends up being the most valuable commodity in that return.

Its a good thing to have a 1.7 million left. Gives flexibility for making trades. Being completely capped out is not a good spot for the team to be. Even that amount can-be helpful.

I completely agree Gores is a bad owner but sometimes its nice to pocket $5 million for nothing. Once the snell trade came through there probably already was a decision to trade that pick. $5 mill made it easier.


I completely agree about the flexibility, said as much in the Pau Gasol thread. However, my standpoint on that is sacrificing the flexibility on the likes of Pau Gasol, isn't the same as sacrificing on the likes of KPJ/Carsen Edwards/Bol/Fernando/etc. The potential upside of those prospects make it worthwhile.

We're already trying to develop:

Kennard
Brown
Sekou
Svi
Thomas

While also trying to make the playoffs.

I'm blown away that people are so pissed about #30.

Before the Snell trade we had Jon Boy! I'm grateful he's gone. Anything after that is icing

I hear ya. And I mean that in no way disrespectful to the ones that bring it up often. It really doesnt seem like a big deal to me. It's the name that was drafted 30th and the name that could have been drafted after I guess. Hopefully the guy we picked at 37th turns out good so we can all move on hehe

A debate could be had whether they are actually trying to develop Thomas and Svi or not.

And again, if having too many guys around to develop is a problem, its not hard to rectify that issue. Young dirt cheap players aren't hard to move. Also, a case can easily be made that guys like KPJ, Edwards, etc are much better prospects than Svi/Thomas/and even Brown.

Again, I'm not personally buying the too many developmentals argument. Detroit isn't loaded with quality prospects. They have a handful of low level prospects that having in house shouldn't preclude turning down any potential talent upgrades.

I've made my thoughts on the Snell trade very well known on this board, no need to go into again. That said, the Snell trade and trading #30 are two entirely different situations. Also, we can't forget they traded away #45 as well. The return they got for those 2 picks is laughably bad, especially considering the way the board looked when #30 went on the clock.
