or Dennis Schroeder + Andre Roberson.
Even if that were possible ... why would you want to do that?
Turn non-assets into valuable assets. Long term thinking.
Adams is 25, can improve even further with our coaching, and on a long term contract.
this is how you fix a team, move by move.
Are you Ryan?
He's 31 and over the last 3 years shot 30%, 31%, 22% from the field after being a SHOOTER ONLY player. Come on, man. Go look at his stats. Also he plays less than zero defense.
You want to save money?? We SAVE MONEY BY CUTTING HIM. No more "assets spent". We keep our assets. Get rid of a bad player. And MAKE MONEY. What am I not understanding?
EDIT: Gonna add this post in

Is that MLE player going to win us a championship and put us over the top?
Nope. So he's not useful to me.
Any move that isn't building assets towards the goal of building a championship contending team, is not useful to me, IMO.
I don't understand the world I'm living in right now. It's a twilight zone. Ryan Anderson is BAD. Having a developmental player who is 20 years old is better than having a 31 year old shooter who has shot historically bad over the last few years.
How is Ryan Anderson more valuable than a player you could sign now (or keep for the future) with Ryan Anderson's money?
