    Vucevic and Al Farouq Aminu for WCJ, Otto Porter Jr. and 2 firsts (2021 and 2023).

    Moving on from WCJ. What surprises me is the 2 firsts.

    I guess Vucevic is around 25 ppg and 12 reb though

    At his Production, locked for 2 more years, itís probably worth it. Iím gonna assume thatíll be a mid 1st 14-18 this year. 18-22 next depending on free agency

    Me either. I thought he looked promising for like a spurt of 5 games this year but then he crumbled again.

    Vucevic gives us a legit big finally.

    Still want Lonzo but trading two firsts in this deal makes that difficult IMO.

    Canít believe some of you are crying about the 2 firsts. Iím tired of us drafting these kids and praying they become something in 4 years. We just traded for a multiple all-star, something the previous regime never had the balls to do because they were so attached to the young guys. Hats off to AK who clearly sees an opportunity to win now.

    Apparently this year's pick is top-4 protected. So that's good at least.

    Wow! Ballsy move. Nice to have a FO that actually takes a big swing. Vuc has been a stud for a while. A little on the older side for a frontcourt guy, but he should age well with his outside game.

    I defended him a lot, but it just wasn't happening here for Carter... looking back at who was selected after him (SGA, Sexton, MPJ), that pick really sucked. Hopefully Lauri is next...give me Lonzo.

    For a Center at his peak, locked into 2 extra seasons on a bargain bin deal for his production.

    Center Ranks
    3rd PPG
    4th RPG
    3rd APG

    For soft *** Wendy, a mid 1st, and a future likely early 20s 1st. What did we lose? 3 role players?

    I donít see the age as an issue. Heís peaking and only had 2 bargain years left on his deal. Low 20 million for his production is a steal.

    And I don't care about the picks TBH. At a certain point you have to use the assets you're stockpiling for a legit player instead of settling for guys like Carter. You can't just sit back and do nothing or LaVine is out the door or maybe even demanding a trade by next season.
