It's crazy we also gave a pick to Memphis and Iguodala to clear cap space for D'Lo juat to unload him for free after a few months.
That Minny pick is a likely top 15 or even top 10 pick in what’s projected to be a loaded draft, it’s a huge asset that opens up a lot of possibilities for us. The jury is still out on the whole series of transactions and we don’t know the final result yet.
it's funny to see ppl overvalue DLo so much, guy has been traded 3 times and played for 4 teams in 5 seasons, there is obviously a reason for that, teams didn't want him, Wolves wanted him becuz KAT is friends with him.
The whole point is: why dump a good player (Iguodala) and a pick to get D'Lo if he's not worth anything.
The Minnesota pick is a good asset, but Wiggins contract is a negative asset, so Minny had to pay to get rid of him.
I get the reason was to get younger, but on a pure asset management standpoint it's not ideal.
