3 Way KLove Trade Reworked
MIN-Thad Young,Anthony Bennett,Dario Saric,PHI/CLE 2015 1st Unprotected
PHI-Andrew Wiggins,Chase Buddinger,LR Mbah a Moute,B.Haywood,J.Lucas,E.Murphy (Phi cuts Haywood,Murphy after trade)
Cavs=Get Their Guy in KLove and form best Big 3 in NBA.
MIN=Gets Thad Young,2013 1st Overall in Bennett, Young Euro Talent in Saric and PHI 1st unprotected which could be 1st overall, MIN rebuilds and has a shot at 2 Top 5 Picks next yr
PHI=Gets their guy in Wiggins take on Contracts in Budinger and LR (who is Embiid's bff)
Philly wouldn't give up an unprotected 1st it be atleast top 3 or top 5 protected
could happen if the Cavs give up an additional 1 and Philly keeps theirs.
Wont happen, but did you really just say bff?
I don't think Flip could explain giving up Kevin Love with Andrew Wiggins involved in the trade and not getting Andrew Wiggins.
He would have to dump pekovic or martin and berea if he wasn't going to get wiggins.
Nobody is cutting Haywood's contract. Next year it jumps to 10 mil, but is only partially guarenteed, which means it is a valuable trade chip.
Why would the Wolves ever want to dump Pekovich? He is a top legitimate bonafide nba center. If the Wolves made him available most teams would be interested.
His problem is that he is good on offense, but lacks the athleticism/length to be the backbone of your defense. In today's NBA having a (solid) rim protector is very important, and Pekovic is definitely not the guy you want defending your own basket.
the most games he has played in a season so far has been 65 as rookie and he only played in 54 last year, so he is injury prone. He is 28 right now so he is what he is and he would be past his prime injury prone player who relies on his bruising style in 2 to 3 years when they would be contending for the playoffs and he is getting paid 12 million dollars a year. The doesn't sound like the profile of a player who should be on a rebuilding team.
Missing a few games is going to happen... it doesn't make a contract bad when the player is legitimate. Quality centers are hard to come by and teams don't just give them away to clear cap room
Anthony Bennett was pulled from the OVO Bounce pro-am tournament in Toronto yesterday. He's not injured. Cue the Ron Paul "It's happening!" gif.
