How do ya'll feel about this trade?
2021, 2023 FRPs (light protection)
Not an unreasonable offer. I think we would try to keep Clarke in a LaVine deal. Maybe Young could go to a 3rd team for additional assets and we replace Clarke with Jontay Porter and a 2nd? Memphis could take back whatever filler the 3rd team sends out. That may be not enough value for you guys though. I'd think LaVine would have a pretty strong market. Also I'd go for the 2024 GSW 1st instead of the 2023 MEM 1st. Feels like that one would be more appealing and seen as potentially more valuable for you guys.
I actually think it's a weak offer for the Bulls the way laving is playing. Thad is still a good veteran presence/player also so he'd fill a void left by Dieng & Clarke.
Memphis currently sit 9th without 3J/Winslow having played a game or with Lavine potentially upgrading Dillon. Both those Memphis picks I'd have projected mid to late firsts & with them being "lightly protected" as suggested, they'd be protected against "lottery luck".
A more fair offer would be Memphis offering up the GS 2024 in combination with the 21 pick.. or am I undervaluing Clarke ?.
