THT at least fit the youth movement. I doubt he turns out well, but we were still going to lack good youth at the guard spots if we traded with the Knicks. So why not give him a lot of burn and see if it doesn’t work out.I actually understand this one more than the THT deal. KO is one of Danny's guys so I think he thinks much more of him than any of us or other teams would. We saved money in this deal and have a minimal obligation next year... THT is surely opting in next year... he's not good. We also did that trade at a really weird time.
This trade blocks the youth movement of two young centers at the cost of our greatest remaining asset.
If it got us under the luxury tax I’d understand… but we were already under it. If KO was under 25 this could make sense too.
