If this happens, I expect miles to return with a post. I don’t see how this deal happens. Whom else are we giving up?
If we’re talking Kuz plus ‘fillers’ like AC and QC, it’s a different story.
I‘d have to stop and think. What rotations am I getting currently, and for how much? Caruso delivers way above his pay grade. So does Kuz. They make nothing, both are starter caliber or high use rotation players on most other teams. Caruso has finished tight games for us. Kuz handle the clutch, too. They’re super value for what we’re paying.
Any trade must reflect that lopsidedness in contract benefits going to a team receiving, let’s say, Kuz and AC. In other words, Chicago should arguably give up more to gain those great contracts for two rotation players.
Would you give up Kuz and Caruz for LaVine? What fillers would you dangle next to Kuz to get it done?
If AC is included I have to think hard. For real. Im preferential to his defense and off the ball movement.
