I signed up for the Durant/Jaylen swap last year and I’m signing up again with Jaylen looking like a SuperMax qualifier. I just don’t see Brad wanting to go that route for a second banana.I'm getting more and more behind trading Jaylen. His value around the league is perceived as high, but he simply can't raise an offense's floor the way you need a 2nd star to be able to do. (Unless the 2nd star is a DPOY Draymond type.)
Is Jaylen for KD the way to go? Who knows whether it's even available. However, I'd prefer to pay some lead dog scorer than to pay Jaylen 60M/yr, from a "roster construction with Tatum" perspective.
Brad Stevens seems pretty ruthless in filling out the roster for a title shot, so we'll see how he has evaluated this.
Cap guys….how does Durant/Finney-Smith and Jaylen’s contracts work as part of a 3-teamer with Dallas?
