1) Iggy + Kelly + Herro + Nunn + 2020 pick
I love Herro, but considering Jimmy's age - i can see the logic of going all in right now with the more ready proven Beal.
2) Bam + KZ + DJJ + Dragic
I don't love this move honestly, but one can argue we'll have a higher ceiling with Embbid on board.
If you make both trade we're left with :
PG : Tyler Johnson / G.Vincent
SG : B.Beal / Ring chaser
SF : Butler/ Ring chaser
PF : D.Robinson/ Ring chaser
C : Embbid / Silva
So we'll have probably the best starting 5 in the league, with a very questionable bench. We'll need to find some old ring chasers and G-leaguers that can help the bench for minimum salaries.
But this team will be deadly if healthy.
Thoughts? I'm thinking maybe trade #1 will be enough.
In on the Beal trade. Pass on the Bam for Embiid. We are just starting to learn what Bam can do. Also, did you sign TJ? Really?
I prefer signing Anthony Davis to Beal or Embiid. In my dreamworld he's the reported disgruntled star. Bam+Butler+Davis and crush.
If we play our cards right and take advantage of acquisitions through 2020 and 2021 available cap/free agency versus trading away young assets... can’t we potentially have a core of Nunn/Butler/Giannis/Bam/AD/Herro/Duncan/KZ?
That is a deep team with young legs, prime time players, and veteran dogs. If we can somehow convince Dragic and Crowder to stick around on a pipe dream Vet min or MLE type deal, that is a thorough, versatile,positionless, two-way team at every position!
We can go big and small and still be dominant no matter what on both ends of the floor. I know the numbers are close, and haven’t crunched them enough to be sure, but I think we are in shooting range of this being a real chance!
