but you hope ainge does something with his assets.. right now it's starting to feel like he had poor asset management when he stock piled so many picks but didnt use them to get a big name.. it'll seem that way if he doesnt end up getting deep into playoffs.
Of the three nets picks he got from trading KG and PP, two of them are all star level talents at age 23 and 21, and one was used to trade for an all star point guard in kyrie. What assets did he waste exactly? The kings pick from the fultz trade was 14th and yea if he wouldve drafted brandon clarke they would be sitting pretty but if you would tell me those three nets picks would be used to draft two all star level wings and trade for a then 25 year old all star point guard, I would have been fine with that.
If he would have used tatum plus assets to trade for kawhi or AD, I can almost guarantee you they would have walked in FA. I would not have traded tatum and assets for butler or George, especially knowing PG wanted to go to LA.
He maybe could have gotten Butler for brown and assets, but would you rather have a 23 year old jaylen brown or 30 year old jimmy butler who was a pending free agent? Easy decision there.
Although I felt he could have gone all out and ended up with an AD, Butler, Kyrie big three which would have been very interesting.
