I agree. Something is missing.Something is wrong then. That pick is too good for 30 and letting us get out of VP
Only thing I could think of is that they really loved Bane and were trying to get in for him at earlier picks and couldn't.I agree. Something is missing.
Shouldn't be able to trade pick #30 by itself, let alone with Poirier, for anything more than a heavily protected 1st that turns into a 2nd or two 2nds.
If this is true, ainge did well. Any first round pick is better than this year's first round pick. and dumping Poirier? Priceless.
Not really. It's not like VP makes a lot either. I'd say it's the expected rate. VP+1st for a 1st that ends up as a 2nd.Trading #30 for ANY pick in 2021 is larceny, isn't it? Can't believe they got that and got rid of VP.
I think if we insisted on something that could reasonably convey Memphis would rather give us a pick that is likely to be in the 20s in 2021 than their own picks which are more likely to be in the teens at some point.I have a hard time we would get that pick when they could just give us their own 2021 pick with their own protections.
If it's that pick, it's like Jeff Green redux.
I'm not convinced Utah is better than Memphis the next 4 seasons.I think if we insisted on something that could reasonably convey Memphis would rather give us a pick that is likely to be in the 20s in 2021 than their own picks which are more likely to be in the teens at some point.
Don't deny it was a mediocre draft, but that was largely because the top wasn''t good. the draft actually had good depth. I like the player for Memphis, very good deal for them it looks. And not saying it is a bad deal for Boston, as #30 wasn't gonna make the roster anywayGiving up the 30th pick in a mediocre draft for two future seconds AND getting rid of the Poirer pick is still pretty great.
