    Not a random trade thread, but similar to Donovan Mitchell situation ….Zion Williamson is being thrown around by New Orleans as trade bait. Apparently, their patience with his injuries and reliability has worn thin. Rockets need to make a similar offer to what they would give Mitchell and see if the Pelicans bite (no pun intended).

    Where are you seeing this? I've only seen Ingram trade rumors.

    Remember kids, the most important ability is availability.

    Yeah but this is the guy you take a chance on, because he is 100% a dude......

    I guess we haven't had enough of injury prone players who are never available in the playoffs huh?? Yao, T-Mac, CP3....Zion plugs right in.

    Define chance. They are going to want at least 2 of our core and draft picks and we would be paying 40m a year for 4 years. He is a dude when he's on the court.

    It's not just his (lack of) ability to stay healthy, it's his mentality. I personally don't believe he has the mentality it takes to become an MVP contender even if he has the raw talent

    I would only take him if we could get him cheap and signed to a KPJ style contract that incentivizes him to play. Neither is going to happen so I say no. If he were not trouble, there is zero chance NO would trade him.

    Inefficient scorer, average playmaker, horrible rebounder, poor defender. Homeless man’s Blake Griffin. Pass.

    5 assists per game at the 4 isn't an average playmaker, but it's probably moot anyway.
    If the guy could stay healthy, the Pelicans wouldn't shop him anyway, and I'm not sure they really are anyway.

    They are building around Zion. Where are u getting your info? Please change the thread title. I’m not spending a minute thinking about Zion because he’s not available.

    Granted the H has some heavy eats but compared to New Orleans?
