Carey/Richards (both 2nd round rookies)
idk where this gets us but clearly this team's FO is too focused on the short term and they would do this. Harden/Graham/Hayward is a really interesting dynamic trio but without any frontcourt help, that's not contending. I'd insist on slapping some top 7 protection on that 2024 1st just to safeguard against Harden leaving in 2022 or 2023 if I was going this route. I don't like punting the young core, but I don't think we're trading any future stars here, so I'd do it. The Hornets fans that like Ball will come and slap you for this though
