A lot of it honestly is Trae, he's legitimately the worst defender in the league and they loaded up on other bad defenders. Murray made sense hypothetically, because he can defend PGs well, but they couldn't adequately hide Trae and Murray struggles on big PGs and SGs, it's like if to fix the IT problem when he had it we got Derrick White and then had mediocre to bad wing defenders. Not a fit for us, but Murray is a solid playerWeren't people in this forum ripping Murray as an empty stats guy during/after the Hawks series? Add in the attitude -- hip-checking and "verbally abusing" a ref at the end of a playoff game and getting suspended as a result -- and I want nothing to do with the guy. There's a reason Atlanta was a .500 team all season long, and it's not all Trae.
