Teams can't plan long term anymore. I hate it, but that's the reality. Stars are dictating everything. They choose the team, they sign short contracts, they get the ring chasers to join, they get the calls - and they're the best and most experienced players.

to win the ship in this NBA you need 3 in prime stars.

We have Bam entering his prime in a year or 2. We have Jimmy in his late prime of another 2-3 years.

Then we have 1 elite role player in Duncan and 1 young guy with star potential in Herro.

It's simple math, if you want Jimmy to still be a key guy on the next championship team - There's only one move.

Trade for a 3rd in prime star, soon as possible. Worry about the future (2024) when it gets here. Focus on 2020-2023. anything beyond 2024 is irrelevant.

For that time span (2020-2023) Herro and Duncan and #20 pick matter a lot less then the star they can net us.

I love Herro and D.Rob, I **** watched multiple horrible Gleague game because I saw something in Duncan.

But if you put the emotions aside, if you focus on maximizing this team chances to win the ship in the next 3 years - the move is to trade anyone but Bam/Jimmy for the biggest available in prime star you can get.


Two stars, or superstars (top 15 players) are usually enough tbh

With 2 they likely need to be top10 and complement each other well. With 3 they don’t need to be quite as good, and they don’t need their skillset to match up quite as well.

I do not understand how this works. But appears the end game would be giving the Heat more draft picks to trade. That is why they are looking to do a S&T for Gallinari.

Ok, I just got some clarity what is going on. Heat are likely actively trying to obtain access to first round draft picks to trade. The reason they are willing to do a sign and trade is to trade post 2024 first rounder. Gallinari and OKC S&T may be an option to do so.

Also looking to move back of the 1st for a second round pick and then completely out of the first for a future first to trade post 2022 draft picks.

They appear have a template on what they need to have to complete a trade for a whale. Well hunting is going to be via trade. They must have a specific player and team they are working with and targeting.

How fast players are moving, they may run out of time before they obtain the trade chips.
