    It's a very risky trade. Wall hasn't played much in the last 2 years. Also, his better days might be behind him.

    Wall is a better fit for Harden, but you have to think Harden won't be happy with this.

    I anticipate this poll being favored towards no and I absolutely would love it. It'll consistent of the same loser that loved the westbrick trade that ended up comically wrong

    After reading what @Nook posted it changes my outlook.

    Sounds like we didn’t have much of a choice.

    I like it bc Wall and Cousins have openly said they want to play with each other.

    Harden knew Russ was gone. He was just playing pickup with Wall just a few weeks back so put two and two together. Russ probably wanted out straight after the bubble and gave Harden notice right then. Then Harden goes into recruiting mode. Convinces Woods and Wall. Then tells Cousins bro, wall is coming so yeah let’s get you and Wall reunited in Htown.

    Bad trade, but if Westbrook refused to report to camp Stone doesn’t have any choice.

    You may be right. I actually picked the option wait and see. It could work, but it all depends if Cousins and Wall can stay healthy. If they do, we're a very strong team with the potential of winning the championship.

    Prior to Klay's injury, Wall's contract is the worst contract in the league, arguably in the history of NBA.

    Unless we're sure that he can be 100%, which is extremely unlikely, how can we only get back a heavily protected FRP? Russ as bad as he was in the playoffs, he was still an all-star and can play the game. Wall, on the other hand, we don't even know if he can play anymore.

    I don't get it, can only hope that the management somehow knows Wall can still play...

    Just a couple of years ago Wall was borderline elite on ball defender. This is huge. He will absolutely be a lock down defender helping our primeter defense infinitely

    I had more hope in stone after how he started... I know he could’ve held out a bit longer and AT LEAST got more favorable protections on the pick
