If JJJ and Ja are the half of Memphis coming back I’m very interested. Those are the real pieces.
You’re not getting wiseman unless a real asset comes back and no, that doesn’t mean attach the GSW 24’ on top of the original bad trade.
I don’t see Memphis and GSW making any moves together involving Wiseman or the MIN pick.
Yeah they are the big assets but your not giving up Curry to get them are you?
It's important to try be objective with your assets. Wiggins is a negative asset and if Wiseman doesn't significantly improve next season then he might be viewed that way as well.
I absolutely don't believe those assets would be viewed particularly highly at the moment but you also need to remember some of the optics of the situation.
It would look incredibly bad to move Wiseman after just 2/3 of a season with no offseason program. Why give up on a player of that high potential that quickly after letting guys like Jordan Poole, Kevon Looney and Eric Paschall develop at their own pace?
Wiggins is not a positive asset sure but that is because other teams see his contract as onerous. IF wiggins was playing terribly and GSW was desperate to move him that would be a problem, but he's not. He's playing the best ball of his career and fitting in well with the team. Why would GSW pay extra to move him if he's having a positive impact?
As for the actual results of this trade, do you actually see the resulting roster as a true contender in the west? No. And I can promise you Curry, Klay & Draymond don't care if they are eliminated in the play-in game, 1st round or WCF. It is Finals or nothing at this time so a trade like this REALLY doesn't help sway our stars anyways.
I could potentially see a trade for the GSW 21' 1st for one or two of those players mentioned, but in no world is Wiseman or the MIN pick available unless Memphis brings real assets to the table.
