To get rid of him, they were willing to take Troy Brown -- a player whom you guys hyping Hutchison think is not at all good & whom, obviously, the Wizards had given up on & wanted to get rid of.
As to Hutchison, the first thing is to hope that he can play in the league. That hasn't been shown. & for that reason, there is no one on planet earth whose option we would turn down just because our having Hutchison under contract somehow means we don't need that guy.
To make it concrete:
This year, Troy played 287 minutes for us. Chandler Hutchison played 64 minutes. Troy was bad. Hutchison was much worse. Last year, Troy played 1785 minutes & played very well. Chandler Hutchison played 527 minutes -- he wasn't nearly as good as Brown. As rookies, on the other hand, they were both pretty good all in all though neither played all that much -- Hutchison played a little more & a little better. At the start of their rookie year, Hutchison was already 22. Troy was 19. Hutchison had played 2000 minutes of college ball before Troy even started college!
I hope Chandler Hutchison can play basketball in the NBA with some success of some kind. That's as far as it goes.
I am expecting absolutely nothing from Hutchison. The guy turns 25 in a month and he has done jack squat so far in his career.
Frankly, I'd be happy if we could just dump his contract. He is going to be a dead weight 15th man like Gill. I'd rather sign an undrafted free agent or G-League prospect.
