Probably not but you'd think they could have gotten a better deal than an expiring Oladipo. Someone would gladly give up a first for 3 years of LeVert. Shoot, I wish it would have been the Celtics. He would have been a perfect TPE candidate. We'll have to see what Houston does with Oladipo. Maybe they deal him at the deadline and get that 1st. I'd take him on the Celtics too.Guessing that HOU didn't want LaVert's long-term contract. If this is correct, as mentioned upthread, HOU is going to see how far they go this year - for optics reasons - and then look to tear it all down next year.
Wall and LaVert and Wood are probably good enough to keep them in the low playoff seed merry-go-round.
