Luke will never be a star guys. Hes just a role player who can nail open 3s. Hes getting way overpaid by the way.
We completely destroyed them on this trade.
We gave up 4 second round picks, and those picks alone should be worth the #19 pick in a weak draft. We got luck that Bey fell into our lap at #19, that doesn't mean this wasn't a terrible trade.
We got completely destroyed in absolutely every trade we did this offseason.
I still dont get the 4 2nd rounder thing. Is there any logical reasoning that has been explained for having to do that?
LAC pretended it was because of Luke's knees and being unable to medically check him out prior to making the trade since it was a draft night deal. Of course then they sign him to 15M AAV a year before the season starts.
Basically LAC had the leverage and used it.
SRP's are 2023-2026 Piston picks. Detroit shouldn't be so bad still that they're valuable. Detroit could probably purchase picks in the same range, and Kennard's 15M AAV vs Bey at 4M over the next four seasons is saving Pistons probably close to 40M a year in salary and only cost around $10M to purchase comparable SRP's in those drafts.
