So before judging what I said to be a attack on two of the top five, look at the context. Production and salary and value to his team. Not to your team. Some posters don't value centers at all. GSW has a few fans like that.
Inviting a attack from some posters only requires me to say something positive about a Hawks player. Its becoming redundant.
Now the fun part begins. Depending on what pieces you have on your team, I see all these adding more value to your team than Capela.
I love Vuc and he was a trade wish of mine before the Capela trade. I value Capela more for his defense and Vuc cost a lot more.
Turner is for real. I honestly think its a coin toss. Both excellent at what they do and on great contracts.
Porzingis is not available enough and cost twice as much. Injury risk is just to high.
Ayton has promise but he is not as mobile defensively as Capela.
Wood is a nice player but I am not trading Capela for him. Capela has to much experience dealing in big moments with some of the best bigs in the game. I don't think Wood is close to being there yet.
Atl needed the defensive help Capela brought to the table. So out of your list its Turner and KP that are close. I think I explained my thoughts pretty well on both of them.
Ayton is a teaser. His age fits right in with Trae and the core. But I think swapping Capela for Ayton definitely puts the Hawks back production wise.
