Frankly, it doesn’t seem like a responsible investment idea to care about someone else. You should care about your own assets and your own team.
Sure it will hurt seeing pg or butler send a dagger down your throat. But ultimately you can’t about your team. How many games you win. How many players you get. Also it’s tough to imagine the pacers or bulls in the playoffs in the next 3 years. And they are FA soon so it becomes even sillier.
Maybe you are right. Maybe it’s just a gm Doing something dumb. However I don’t like all the the reporting saying “ he wanted to trade him out of conference” like that thought is reasonable. It’s not. It’s dumb.
