I would prefer to wait February, or at least some months, before trading Reddish.
I know you would like so much to get Simmons, but are sure that we would be better than last season with this trade ?
It's not that I don't like him, sure he would bring something, but there are too many points that I don't understand in this trade, just two of these :
- I'm not sure at all that the "one covering the weakness of the other" works great.
If both are on the floor, will Trae take the 3pts shots that Simmons doesn't take ?
Wouldn't it be easier for opponent to defend on Trae ? I see something like 1,5 defender on Trae and 0.5 on Simmons if both are around the 3pts line...
- why would it be a problem for ATL to keep their young guys because they will have to be extended and maybe because they don't want to come of the bench, if they end up being in the same situation with another team ?
Why having these guys being right now on the bench is a problem for ATL, but would not be for PHI ?
And if we replace them by a guy already making maybe more than the combo of Huerter and Reddish future extensions ? where's the flexibility for other players' extension
I don't know, I think that I like this roster, more than any since a lot of years, that I don't want any trade, at least until February and the chance to see what they can do all together.
I know that it's better to do a trade before the season starts than in the middle of the season (it rarely pays off), but, I can't see a trade I would do at this moment
