You do not do a trade or trades if they are seen as net negatives from jump street. The only reasons to move Collins is to get a better player or avoid paying him in 2020/21. Isaac is not the better player so from your point of view it must be to save money.
Isaac has upside (is already close to it actually) of DPOY so i figure thats a worthy gamble to trade Collins for, especially when they have young already. Its not to save money i have them making similar $ in their prime. I actually voted equal in value hence the trade proposal
A really bad answer from my point of view. Every contender you can find has two scoring horses and for some teams there are three.
Clippers, George and Leonard
Lakers, Lebron and AD
Bucks, Giannis, Middleton, Bledsoe
76ers, Embiid, Harris, Simmons
Celtics, Tatum, Brown, Hayward
Pacers, Warren, Sabonis, Brogdon, Oladipo at full strength.
The Hawks have scoring horses in Trae and Collins. They need to improve some defense; not subtract some offense. All this trade does is put them in a position to look for a offensive horse, which is much more expensive to add. Maybe you have not noticed but players like Covington and Beverly are a lot cheaper than players like Harris, Middleton, Bledsoe, Brogdon etc.
The Hawks will be ok and do not need a quick fix. There is no logjam for the Hawks. Trae, Collins, Hunter, Reddish, Huerter, and Capela have very good chances at defined roles. Unlike Orlando, who apparently has no clue what to do with Isaac and Gordon, or if Fultz really is their point guard of the future.
