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.
