Regarding the trades discussed above, in short, my position is as follows:
All other players/picks < Vassel = Onyeka = Clarke < JJJ <<< Ja
My main goal 2020 is to have this as Memphis big man rotation.
(#4-8) Onyeka / Jonas / Jontay in development league
3J / Clarke
After a full season of experimenting with which combinations fit best with 3J/JA, in 2021 Memphis will have depth & trade options. Could potentially package Jonas or a proven young big, which teams value in trade over the unknown, taking out the guess work.
(6-10) I like Okoro & his defensive potential but due to spacing issues the 2 wings I'm looking at are Williams > Vessell. Think Williams is a potential triple threat & has more potential than Vassel who I have down as a high end role player & great fit for Memphis. Think 3 & D, is Williams floor.
Onyeka > Williams > Vassel are my top 3 trade in picks for Memphis in this draft.
I took back Wiggins to net Minnesota's 2021 in order to combine picks in draft in the case Memphis take another leap in there development.
If Wiggins is a problem beyond his negative contract. I'm sure there's other similar contract's like Harris for example that Memphis could flip him for an equal or worse contract. One particular offer, I had Wiggins going to OKC to help Philly facilitate a trade for CP3...
