2019 Award Winner
2020-21 Award Winner
It is tough… Lauri and Mike for both picks also opens up a bunch of cap space for us. Not that we will do a whole lot better. It would be selling high on Lauri… at least I think maybe a little. I know some think those picks wouldn’t be valuable but I think they’d be likely the most valuable picks in the pick portfolio.That's a tough question for me. I'm leaning yes, since we don't have a big enough sample size to say that Lauri can keep up his current play. I would guess Lauri tops out as a top 50 maybe top 30 type of player. We really need a top 5/top 10 type of player and that trade gives us more chances to get one.
Lauri has been really impressive so far though. This is really his first chance to play on ball and he's likely to go through some growing pains, but I think he has a lot of potential. So maybe not. Like I said, pretty tough.
If we put Lauri in I want 27,29 and a swap in 28… we end up getting a top 5 pick this year… instead of a top 10ish pick and it’d be worth it… but I’d love to find a different way to get those picks.
