    Free capspace.

    We don't have a pick in 2021 draft (just swap from whichever is worst between OKC and some other team detroit or nuggs IIRC) so getting into the playoffs with Oladipo and Wall is a smart move.

    Not that bad I guess. I mean I'd rather have a star but 4 picks and 4 swaps? Goddamn that's tight.

    I just don't understand how this is just a straight swap for Lavert for Oladipo. Surely Indy has to give us something else since Lavert is a GREAT contract. Indy and Cleveland made out like bandits on this trade. Should have gotten more from each of these teams. Still hoping there is more?

    I hope we are terrible enough to get Cade Cunningham.

    Rockets didn’t get a single young player with nice upside

    might as well embark on a prolonged tank job and pray we hit on a pick in a major way

    man, I don’t trust Tilman with a rebuild

    sigh

    My guess is Tilman don't want to pay Levert who has 50M salary left in his contract.

    3 injury prone stars on one team. At least the Harden drama is gone

    The picks better all be unprotected. Otherwise this is an awful trade, one that will set the team back for a decade or longer.

    We didn't get one single shooter back. I can't believe this. I just don't even know what to say.
