    Jalen Green doesn't have that kind of trade value, because of his inconsistencies.

    Hard to see Charlotte parting with Miller under almost any circumstances. I feel like they'd almost be more likely to trade LaMelo given his injury issues.

    They have roughly the same exact rookie year in Miller and Green.

    Why trade Miller for Green?

    Neither team would entertain that trade. Jabari can sooner learn to operate in a wing like role than Miller can learn to be 6-11.

    People really sleep on Jabari. The kid is still so raw. I can see a future with him in a Kawhi like role where he isn't the leading the league in points but one of the best two ways in the league. Kawhi didn't average Jabari's current PPG until his 4th year in the league. He was 23 at the time.

    Jeez that would be amazing. Please basketball gods let it happen.

    Hard to imagine Jabari gaining that sort of explosion, especially with those big hands Kawhi has…

    I see that for Tari more than for Bari.

    Tari doesn't have much offensive upside.

    That Keegan Murray game is sort of the blueprint for our guy over here

    Jabari doesn’t move off the ball like Murray. Murray will move through multiple screens or relocate multiple times I one possesion. Jabari does that one time a possessions. I be screaming at him to move. He watches Sengun get doubled and buried and doesn’t react at all. He jsut watched it hsppen. Jabari processes the game slower than anybody on the roster. He’s not that reactionary at all to what’s happening on the court.

    fortunelt we don’t need to Jabari to downer Murray does. It would be nice but it’s not crucial. He needs to be a stronger rebounder for us. And knockdown shooter
