Better is relative. Are you a team with a long window looking to maximize their ceiling long-term or are you all in on right now? Some teams want to get better right now, some teams are okay waiting. That's the basis of most significant trades.
It would be Rui (who could be solid in his own right), Bertans (overpaid, but also spreads the floor) and Scottie Barnes is going 6th Overall by most rankings.
- Excellent size and length for a modern forward at 6-8 with a 7-2 wingspan and a strong frame. Has the tools to slide up and play some small-ball center in a pinch.
- High motor defender who can defend 1 through 5 at the collegiate level. Regularly picks up point guards in the back court. Good technique on the ball. Crowds opposing guards and takes them out of their offense. Can switch every screen onto bigs. Active off-ball defender.
- Mismatch facilitator with a great feel for the game. Plays point guard for FSU. Unselfish moving the ball ahead in transition. Comfortable ball handler. Fills in the gaps on offense. Keeps plays alive on the offensive glass.
- Unnatural shooting stroke with unproven results. Lack of floor spacing makes him a tough fit on the offensive end of the floor. Needs shooters around him at all times to make him most effective.
- Limited all-around scorer in the half court. Doesn't have great touch or much to go to in his scoring arsenal.
- Mobile for his size but lacking a degree of quickness and burst off the dribble. Plays below the rim in the half court. Not much of a leaper. Elite collegiate defender, but will he have the foot speed to lock up elite NBA wings?
Projected role: Two-way point forward
That seems like a great fit in Indy plus Rui.
