As I was saying, NewEra is a quality GM. He understood, even with Embiid + Harden, a top heavy squad without a deeper supporting cast wouldn’t cut it for his championship goals. So he leveraged the pick to turn Harden into two additional top scoring options, stretching out his lineup, to mitigate the concerns regarding quality depth. Nice work!
MP gets a scoring title level offensive #1 option as well as a C he was missing in Zubac. Making a beneficial trade for both teams.
Yep. I'm already in his PMs with a win/win deal I think. NewEra is one of the GMs I know will take a move if it's out there. Not afraid to pull the trigger.
