…and boy oh boy does the NBA know how to start off well. The literal first hour Trevor Ariza can be traded, he is dealt straight-up for Oubre and…well, it leaves a lot to be desired. The Wiz got another wing…but he can actually play defense at multiple positions. The Suns also got another young wing who’s future they can control. The issue with this?
…it’s just weird? Like these two teams shouldn’t be doing a trade for either of these players. Suns need a point guard, and the Wiz have four. Yet the Wiz trade away a good building block for a rebuild, for a guy that they are hoping will help get them away from that projected 7th place Eastern Conference finish. While I find that doubtful, and a waste of young assets, I guess anybody can keep their job is they can convince a stupid owner/ownership group they know what they are doing.
Speaking of stupid owners, James Dolan (the Knicks owner), has just announced that he is willing to sign away his team for a ‘bona fide offer.’ Just like you, I have no idea what that terminology is supposed to mean. What I do know is that we will finally (FINALLY) get rid of someone in the “Top 5 Worst Owner” List (dropping soon?????). Rejoice Knicks fan, you’ll finally win a game that matters here.
