I always figured SVI would come back around to good shooting. I like Diallo a lot more though

I thought Svi got better in the other parts of his game this season, partially to compensate for his shooting slump. He may be a better player overall as a result going forward. This change of scenery might keep him on somebody's bench next year. He just wasn't a fit for the rangy athletic type Weaver looks for.

His numbers for the Thunder are still underwhelming so far- he’s had poor nights too.

I hope he figures it out though. Always liked him.

Seems like the trade worked out for all parties.

For the record, while everyone apparently is riding the Svi Train again, I still don't think he'll work out in OKC. I don't want to see him fail, but he had some solid stretches for Detroit. He had his 22 point game. He also had two games where he shot 5 for 21 combined.

Difference makers? Who is helping their team win more? That's the name of the game. Josh is what he is. He has talent, but do you think you can count on him to help win a title? There is too much high and low range in his stats. I'm interested in Diallo. Needs some time to see what he can do here. Looking forward to seeing Hayes again. We still need some shooting. Floor general. Intimidator in the paint.
