Im happy to discuss anything of basketball relevance, speculations or not. Personally I still dont think there is a chance they include Collins.We can only know speculation brother until it happens.
Quality dependent, he's at least two first rounders better. The 3pt shooting volume is a huge game changer.If its a choice between Sexton and Herro... I think Herro is the better player... but is he one first round pick better?
I'm also a little hesitant because Collin has leaned in to being here all summer and working. Unsure if Herro going from Miami to Utah gonna make him super happy.
The duplication on the roster with JC/Sexton/Herro? and potentially Key (if he's good) is gonna be tricky to work around.
So then the only thing they would truly value out of us (as far as players go) would be Hendricks.I don't think it would be Collins but mostly because I don't think Portland is looking to acquire him. If they trade Dame its full tanks ahead on a rebuild. Likely move Grant midseason.
I think we are headed for a mid 30s win season... if Herro and Collins are more heavily involved maybe we are headed for a low 40s win season. That's fine but giving up a pick (or three if you are @Saint Cy of JFC ) and tying up a lot of future cap to get that boost? IDK... would obviously want to see what the move looks like... would also be nice to know the end game cuz a Herro/JC backcourt seems kinda weird.I know that history is often not kind to times where you prioritize “potential” over a more established player (like Favors and Kanter over Millsap), but I’d honestly just rather roll with Hendricks and George over making moves for big minute eaters like Collins and Herro. I know, I know, cue all the reasons why they’re not mutually exclusive and how minutes are earned and development and Hardy and etc., etc., etc.
