Oh you care, otherwise you wouldn't have posted in this thread, especially wishing bad things to him, how is this not caring?

They say actions speak louder than words. And we kind of have a precedent move similar to this when we traded Jrue, which drove Pels mad. Nobody would want a damaged good.

Get out before anyone finds out.

*this is given that the injury took place AFTER they draft him


Are you saying they pretended he wasn’t injured for a year and a half?

My guess is they were simultaneously trying to see if he can be fixed and shopping him at the same time. This is why they sat him out a lot (due to injury) because his stock is plummeting every time he gets exposure.

I think it was a combination of an undisclosed injury and Brett Brown not really liking him. Again, hindsight sucks, but we really screwed up trading him away for nothing.


Pick 21 will be an all NBA player in a few years. The karma pendulum is bound to be swinging the other way about now... right

There is no pendulum. There are FOs that make informed decisions and FOs that run purely on "basketball minds". Not to say there isn't an element of eye test, but there's enough data out there to make very informed and strong choices.

It's amazing in 2020 there are teams that are still completely clueless.

I believe you. This pick is going to be an all star player for many years. Thing is, we're going to trade this pick along with Mattise Thybulle, and Tobias Harris for Buddy Hield and a pile of garbage. Then everyone is going to be super happy because we have Buddy Hield who can't defend and can't win in a halfcourt playoff setting. Meanwhile Sacramento will get the 21rst all star pick, Mattise Thybulle who will win several DPOY awards, and Tobias Harris who will suddenly regain his PnR form from his Clipper days. Kings will win 60+ games and be a perennial threat out west while we struggle to win 40 games and make the playoffs as an 8th seed. After getting ousted in the first round by Brooklyn, Elton Brand will declare that major changes will be made during the offseason. At which point we will then target the likes of Wendell Carter jr, and Josh Okogie via trades. After all that is done, former NBA player Brad Lohaus will step in as the new coach along with Ronny Seikaly as his lead assistant. Hersey Hawkins will be brought in as a consultant along with Dana Barros. Gonna be awesome! Just like the 90s were!!!! Todd Day and Andrew DelClerq will get an honorable mention, but Vitaly Potapenko will remain overseas to well...oversee.
