Boucher's short contract right now is very valuable (especially to a contender), little risk and all the upside. If we wait on trading Boucher, his next contract may not be as valuable as right now.
I don't think their outside the realm of near consistent production for him. He never received the minutes to deliver in the past. Also context is highly relevant, he's our defacto big so he will default to greater number of boards. He has also shown to be a consistent blocker. His shot has improved considerably, if he continues to develop defensively I think we could see a big turn around for him.
Like I said though I think this is highly contextual based on the current make up of our team at the moment.
If he tacks on some real dense muscle he could be something really awesome.PrinceAli wrote:Bouchers value right now is as high as it’ll ever be. With the way his stock has risen I think we could get a first round pick from some team for him. If that’s on the table I hope we go for it
I have to disagree with this. He's shown immense grown in a year alone. You can't discount that for yet another prospect play. Raps also have an incredibly terrible track record at predicting talent growth.
He’s not gonna get anymore efficient than he’s been playing right now. If anything his shooting percentages will die down a bit. He’s not gonna get any bigger so he’s always gonna be a specialist that can do great in small ball but against other big men he could struggle. He’s also not young. 28 is basically his prime so while he may potentially improve a little more, the growth rate won’t be as drastic. And as others have mentioned before, a key part of his value is how great of a contract he’s under. As soon as he gets into a bigger deal in the future, his trade value will get hit
