Yeah he cannot score on the ball and is mostly an opportunistic scorer, but we don't need a center to be our scorer. Winning players trump talented but lazy and undisciplined players, and Adebayo is a winning players. We need winning players.
If we’re trading Biid, it’s for a load of talent that can provide perimeter scoring like James Harden or Beal.
Obviously that would be the best option, but people told me here that we wouldn't be able to get these playeres for Embiid. So I'm proposing an alternative trade, for a player that almost anyone views as inferior to Embiid but that is really better in playoffs and in end of games, and fits better with Simmons. Moreover, he would bring part of the Heat's culture that we desperately need.
Yeah, bringing in that "Heat culture" w/JRich paid massive dividends for us, so let's overpay them again!
