    Wall a better passer than Russell a better shooter and is a loyal player to his home city. Clutch player when on his home court. Health an obvious big concern, but Russell's rebounding not as big of a deal with the big now. Hopefully, the pick has limited protections.

    Like the trade as a solid trade.

    Hard to see the direction we are going in.

    These feel like Patrick moves.

    Wall still hanging out with bloods? It’s a lateral move if Wall is healthy and keeping Russ was not an option if he was going to be a nuisance. Rather younger potential players but getting close to that salary would have been hard.

    Wish they could have talked Bertans for Gordon while they were at it and replace Gordon with one of the young wings. Would love that +40% consistent 3 ball next to James. Woods and Bertans as your front court would be nuts with Wall and James finding the open shooters.

    Basically this. If those two stay healthy and play at their potential then sky is the limit. I still don’t think we can beat either LA team but at least it will be fun to watch.

    Uh what value do you people thing Westbrook had? He was painful in the playoffs last year and a horrible fit with Harden. I'd rather take a flyer on Wall and get a FRP in the high school eligible 2023 draft. I like this deal.

    No one was giving up first round picks and young players for someone who is arguably negative value on the court...

    Gross. Can we just start the rebuild already? And what are the protections on the pick...

    You just have to laugh at this point. This organization is garbage, top to bottom. Welcome to the Houston Knicks.

    Tillman and Co. are making some big D energy moves at the moment. I am pumped for the upcoming season.

    Contract goes through 2022-23 (player option that year).
