I like him a lot but the inj history scares me. Collins has been a 20-10 big on elite efficiency the last 2 years before this. And no I believe he only turned down the extension once. (right before the season started)
Either enjoy watching him while you can, pay him what the FO doesn't want to pay him, or trade him for what you can get, three easy options. His attitude with Trae isn't helping, he's alienating the star player/FO/coaching staff, he turned down $22M yr contract and the trade deadline is in Feb I believe, his value isn't going up, it's headed DOWN. Bol and a 1st might be the best offer you can get....while it's on the table. MPJ in a Hawks jersey is a pipedream IMO.
Porter is a risk due to back injuries. You have to consider that as a major part of it. Of course, wasn’t Porter slated to go top 3 in the 2018 draft, but he didn’t due to his BACK. And Bol hasn’t played significant minutes so we have yet to see the major holes in his game.
You may possibly be overvaluing your beloved Nuggets players. IMHO.
How long does this "risk of back injury" crap go on...will it be till he retires ?? He's went through a whole revocery season, then has played through a season without ANY back issues....this is just a narrative to try to reason justifying a reduction of his trade value. The ONE person everyone tries to trade for off the Nuggets is MPJ, yet they say they're willing to take that risk if he's cheap enough. Right now he's been putting up 20/7 on good TS% in realistically just his 2nd season, he has superstar potential. Putting MPJ's number up against Collins alone and he's the better value, yet you want to add a 1st AND a high potential player like Bol and you don't want to acknowledge that it's a bit weighted in ATL's favor ??? Get real is all I can say.
