I truly hate everything about this trade. I get we wanted to open up some minutes/a bigger role for Simone, Lauri, and Ochai.... I guess? But the key to the tank for me is having one position where we are absolute dog ****. That position was center... KO is a solid center option where we primarily had rookies and projects.

I actually like Saben Lee but I like him in a way that is like "oh we signed Saben Lee to a minimum deal".

This is the **** that drove me nuts in the DL era... leaving **** on the table. Could have snaked a few seconds in this deal or the THT deal. We could use those seconds to dump salaries if that is what we need to do.

Ain't gonna spin any bigger theories here... we just do weird **** sometimes I guess.

The sad reality now is if we couldn’t get a 1st for Bogey we definitely aren’t getting one for anyone else on the roster who’s on the trade block.

It’s pretty clear at this point that the Timberwolves just bent over for Ainge and they got more than they ever thought possible.

I really think Ainge makes this **** too personal and when his A deal doesn’t go way he wants, he makes deals so he can “sure show them”. And all the while sours everyone along the way.

This is an atrocious trade. Easily top-5 most pure trash.

I guess we playing 12D chess cuz the Pistons get too good to tank and we really just brought back nothing.

Your last sentence is actually a good point.
We get worse in the trade and another tanker gets better.
Maybe this trade moves our 2023 pick from #6 to #2 or something.

makes the jazz worse, but honestly it's negligible. saves some money, but it's a bad trade. ainge got desperate or lazy or both.
I'm not even sure it makes us worse... the drop off from Bogey to Lauri/Simone may not be as big as the drop off between Kessler/Doke and KO.

This is not a tank move imo. This hurts the tank.

Certainly not if it’s a moment where an Ainge conniption fit coincides with Smith running to the Jazz ATM.

Sorry….I just don’t want to see Kelly Olynyk take development time away from Doke or Kessler.

Let the younguns play and be really bad!

Agreed. And maybe olynyk gets cut or is the 3rd stringer (i hope).
Cant believe anything gms say about players.
