I'm one of those guys who has been asking for Whiteside to be traded. But I'm kinda conflicted on this one. Whiteside for Tristan, huh? On one hand, I think he's a major downgrade at the C spot offensively. On the other hand, I believe he brings in more effort and passion through rebounds, screening, and he's probably a better perimeter defender than Whiteside is. The Kardashian curse, though. But if he's coming off the bench anyway, it really doesn't matter. KO and Bam would suffice.
Then we're gonna get Jordan Clarkson. He was pretty good on the Lakers. If Spo can make him much, much more efficient, then he could be something. He can make his own shot. And he's probably more durable than Dion.
Kyle Korver?? He can hit shots, but he's a major defensive liability.
