Yeah, I've been trying for an hour to find a realistic Ross trade that get Orlando good assets and I'm not convinced of one.
Ross into TPE for 2021 GSW lottery protected 1st.
Given the tax hit of this, I don't see GS considering it. Ross doesn't move the needle compared to that cost.
This seems the best possible scenario to me, but also one I think Milwaukee passes on. Taking on the long money and giving out a first is using their two avenues up while not addressing their issues.Buzzard wrote:Ross for Ersan/Wilson/1st

Ross being moved at this seasons deadline would be no different than Clarkson or Beasley when they were moved. When I say a pick for a player, I am not just talking in terms of 2020 picks.
Look at those scenarios.
Utah moved off multiple years of bad salary (Exum) for 2 2nds while getting an expiring.
Minnesota got 2 semi promising guys about to be rfa's for a late 1st.
Ross is worth less than Beasley (and Juancho) and I think your trade highlight he looks a lot more like a guy moved for a pair of 2nds far more than a 1st (regardless of what year).
