Slightly off-topic, but when we talk about trades, there aren't actually a lot of trade options at the moment, mostly due to the fact that there isn't a position of weakness anymore among the starting 5

At Center, how many players would you definitely take over Myles?

Embiid, Jokic, KAT - but they are all not available

For the next tier of Centers, there are arguments to be made that we are better off keeping Myles:

Gobert (Myles is younger, not that much worse in defense, and much better offensively)
Vucevic (Myles is younger, and much better defensively)
Drummond (same argument as Vucevic)

And so on; we're better off keeping Myles basically. Same goes for the other positions

PF - who'll you take over Domas?

Anthony Davis, Zion, JJJ, Bagley (not available)
Blake Griffin & LMA (they're old)
Porzingis (injury concerns)
Tobias Harris (expensive)
Markkanen & Siakam (not THAT much better)

SF - who to take over Warren?

LBJ, Durant, Kawhi, Giannis, PG, Butler, Tatum (not available)
Hayward, Ingram (injury issues)
Jaylen Brown (not worth giving up Domas)

SG - we have Vic

PG - who to take over Brogdon?
Curry, Dame (not available)
Simmons (not available, bad fit)
Kemba, Russell, Holiday, Trae Young, DeAaron Fox (practically not available)
Westbrook, Chris Paul (old, expensive, just got traded for each other)
Wall (injury issues, expensive)
Lowry (old)

We'll give you OG Anunoby for Sabonis. OG has played in Indy, and this is a win win trade for both teams.

No thanks. How about you give us Siakam instead?

(See how this works?)

I'd say Sabonis is definitely better and more impactful than OG at this point in his career.

That’s a bit of a weak offer right now. Plus, we really need a 4 and OG really seems best at 3, where were a bit heavy with Warren, McDermott, Lamb, and Brogdon all really able to play there. And, I think y’all really need OG long term with Kawhi gone now too.

But yeah, we should’ve taken the chance on OG instead of Leaf in that draft. Oh well. Can’t change the past.

I'd been working quite a bit. OG for Sabonis is a joke! :lol:
