It would essentially boost both strengths and mitigate their weaknesses big time. Having only got one for half a season in 4 years is more on the 76rs front office then the duo themselves.
How about a 20/5/5 guy like Oladipo? Playing well and looking healthy. And he (and others that could fit the third star mode) could be a very nice plan B that shouldn't cost Simmons to get. How would we like to be able to keep both our stars and add a third?
If getting Harden breaks the bank now or mortgages our future later without a high confidence that bringing him here gets us a title shot, then I'd be looking at other options including standing pat if necessary.
Be wary of Oladipo. They are running a TON of offense for him to reach those 20+ ppg. His production is about as fake as it gets, right now.
Brogdon is the only player in Indiana playing like a star.
I'm not so sure I agree about Oladipo. If they're creating offense for him he's making the most of it. He's only getting 14 shots a night and shooting 55 from the floor and 54 on 6 shots a night from downtown. No one expects him to stay that hot but most of the reservations regarding Oladipo are whether he's healthy (sure looks like it) and whether he could knock the rust off. (so far so good)
I will agree it's still early and a healthy skepticism is in order. But let's keep an eye on him.
