Right - I meant, we shouldn’t give away a young player too soon to fill a need in the front court with someone who doesn’t have the same upside.
Best case, everything works out for once - Kanter defends ok, hits threes, Theis stays healthy, Poirier plays good NBA defense, Williams develops over the year.
No, I understand your point but the second Jaylen gets that contract he goes from a player who we are developing and hoping to take a jump to the next level to a player we EXPECT to take the jump to the he next level. I don’t like paying for hope and right now jaylen to me isn’t worth the money.
You don’t just give him up for anything but if you can get an established all star or all star level talent you do that IMO- not just anyone but someone who fits here and is still either in their prime or entering it.
Oladipo had an amazing year in 2018 and a good year in 2019 but he’s had injuries and is one his 3rd team, as good as he was in 2018 you can’t forget how disappointing he was before that
