    We got an all star caliber PG for peanuts, and got a 2nd round pick?

    what a steal! we gave up nothing! but a protected first... the second rounder pretty much replaces NJ.

    great deal!

    now lets get an upgrade at PF :)

    You hardly ever see trades where one team clears out their dead roster spots for a starting caliber player. Incredible deal.

    We finally a solid PG rotation. FINALLY. Less burden on Harden to playmake every damn time. I expect everyone's efficiency to increase.

    Denver's GM must have been high when he made this trade.

    If we get Hayes, I will feel really, really good about our roster next year.
