I think in the real world, if Harden is close to being moved to another team, the Rockets are going to check in with Morey to see if he can top the offer before they make the move.
and if you would be morey, you would say "nah, we wanna see how plan a goes"?
No, I'd re-evaluate things then like any intelligent person would, but there's literally no reason to force the move early if you don't need to. I can tell you that if I'm Morey though, I'm not making franchise altering moves as overreactions to COVID striking.
This isn't Covid striking. This is your most valuable player looking around at the supposed other "superstar" on his team giving him 5 points of help against an opponent running 8 deep.
You can get away with that when your scoring player is a guard or a winger who can create, but when it's a center he NEEDS a guard or a wing that can make his life easier.
Right now, if I'm Embiid, I'm fuming over Ben being a complete zero on offense. 12 assists is nice, but great point guards get you 10 assists while scoring 20 or more. If Ben got even his average tonight we win this in a walk and Embiid knows it.
