    Yeah that kind of goes back to my point with Fins that its probably best to refer back to the Dalembert trade as a blueprint rather than looking at random trade proposals. More or less to see the endgame or purposes of trying to move up, or down. If you mention a player, or players & picks, you sort of deviate from the purpose when you try too hard to make an example trade work.

    I think its clearer if you look at what the purpose would be rather than just looking at example trades that could or couldn't happen. I mean when have we been able to guess exactly what players Morey is going to trade for even back when Morey's end game was much more clear???

    When Popovich traded away George Hill (who was one of Pops favorite players) for the 15th pick and Kawhi Leonard, I got a sick feeling in my stomach we would regret passing on Leonard.

    All second round picks. The tweet was only referring to picks 11-30.

    Both Terrence Jones and Patrick Patterson have been starters.

    Worth noting one of those busts was an asset that was converted into James Harden.
