Don't mind seeing Len stick around, but I just don't see us resigning him next OS.... assuming he continues to show promise, it's much like Dedmon's situation this time around.

I just meant this season, I don’t think he’ll be resigned either. Might not make it past trade deadline actually.

Anyone who isn't part of the 2021 plan is expendable. This year is meaningless in the big picture, other than for the core players to show progress.

I think getting Adams puts us closer to the playoffs this year.  Toughness we lack and solid rebounding / d.  He is a good finisher and a good passer.  Sign me up

POST WESTBROOK TRADE EDITION

 

To ATL

2 years of Steven Adams + 4 years of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander on rookie contract (total salaries ~$29.8m) + some advantageous modification on 2022 1st rd pick

 

To OKC

1 year of Chandler Parsons (salary ~$25.1m)

 

That nets out for OKC about $4.7m in room, whereas they only need about $3.7m to be able to swing a deal with MIA that sends out Chris Paul and allows them to add even more to their sizeable draft pick bank.

We end up having to take on an additional big salary on next year's payroll (Adams). That's not a dealbreaker, but it's certainly a significant negative.

Otoh, that significant negative could be somewhat if not largely neutralized in getting Gilgeous-Alexander on his rookie contract, who would seem to be that tall, solid defender, 2nd PG that would complement our 1st PG nicely.

Of course, the trick would seem to be, could Presti and Schlenk come to agreement on the rest of the deal, ostensibly some improvement on our rights to their 2022 pick that seems destined to end up as two 2nd rounders instead.

I’ve always said Sturt is a smart man who comes up with the best trades. 

Let me get this straight, we trade chandelier for taking on 2 years of Adams and SGA????? 

I would have signed off on this trade yesterday! YES.
