Just a horrendous trade.

I really don't care since we don't want to be good anyways, but I have a hard time believing there was no draft capital ANYWHERE to be had for Bogey.

FYI - Detroit made this trade under the cap, so in theory, if the Lakers really wanted Bojan, there is no delay and a trade can be made tomorrow and he can be aggregated with no restrictions.

IMO just like with the THT trade, the simplest explanation is probably the right one - Ainge just loves Kelly Olynyk more than anyone else in the world. With old school GMs that's a recurring theme and one we should be ready for in the future. Ainge will make some head scratcher moves simply because he has his evaluation and doesn't go a step deeper and ask himself - are others seeing it this way and can I actually get more here? He was reportedly ready to trade 4 1sts for Justise Winslow. He also traded out of no. 1 pick when there was a consensus best player(and was right in that case), he also drafted Brown no. 4 when nobody wanted him this high. He just has his views and sticks with them even if unpopular.

I personally hate this deal. And the worst thing is - it signifies we probably won't be able to get anything of value for the other vets.

So for cap space theory... we don't have space next year unless we move Mike or waive him making his number 14M... we also need JC to opt out or get moved.

I need to see the follow up moves here as the puzzle pieces aren't fitting right for any "theories" right now.

Ainge ran out of gas and is now just shooting from the hip as we get closer to training camp.

Analysis, meticulous strategy, and tough negotiation has gone out the window. In the wake of getting so much for Rudy and Donovan, the analysis now is "well we kinda need to move off the incumbent guys and we should save money in the process. Also, I just kinda have a boner for certain guys, so, IDK."
