This feels like a debate that doesn't matter. I wouldn't offer both picks as GS, even as someone who thinks they should move picks to get better now and optimize the end of heir championship window.
Agreed. I can't believe GSW would trade both picks to compensate for Wiggins' admittedly overpaid deal. Those are two SERIOUS value picks and those two contributors will come in cost-controlled for years while Wiggins' deal winds down. I know many will disagree, but I don't put Oubre (basketball wise-contracts notwithstanding) on a different tier than Wiggins. Oubre is a good scorer, okay shooter, solid athlete...if he gets the kind of deal he's probably angling for, he'll be overpaid too. I'd take Wiggins and two elite picks over Oubre and #10 any day...I also concur that those picks should be traded for win-now pieces for GSW.
If GS is looking for win now move they are better off using their TPE then pay to dump Wiggins.
Is GS really is hurting due to gate revenue (80% of revenue estimated), GS would probably prefer to dump Wiggins into pure cap space with a team like Atlanta.
That 2021 Wolves FRP is losing value almost every day.
Same with Wiggins negative value — dropping almost every day.
GSW is seriously looking at most realistic outcome of not using TPE (due to financial state of NBA), not trading Wiggins (just too toxic of contract and too much attached value needed to move), and with no other trade ballast...keeping 2020 FRP (not using in win-now trade).
