Ntilikina has played more and somewhat better than hun, yet it's okay to trade Frank in such a scenario?!
You wouldn't trade Frank/9th pick/Hardaway for Kawhi???
No, I wouldn't.
What will you do when Kawhi is it for months with more leg "soreness."
What will you do when Porzingis has delays and won't be back fully until 2019?!
Packages like that are what landed is here. I want to PAIR Frank's Defense with Kawhi & Porzingis Defense. NOT subtract it. #9 and a Top 5 protected future 1st along with other assets should be enough. Otherwise just let it go.
I dunno. Frank may turn out not as special as some think, the #9 could be D. Mitchell... could be Sweetney, and Hardaway's production vs salary keeps me up at night. Spurs might actually bite on a package that included Frank as Parker's replacement and it would be hard for me to not bet on a Burke/Mudiay, Dotson, Kawhi, O'Quinn, KP lineup. I could kinda see why no one one wants to give up on Frank's potential but I've always felt like he'd need Pop to achieve it. Who knows, maybe Fizdale works magic but the Hornaceck experiment has me somewhat unclear on Frank.
