Polladaday: Trade Winner?

Which team won the Nerlens Noel-Jrue Holiday trade?

    To be frank, NOLA should have kept NOEL. That “block party” would have been fun to see; they would have complimented each other as one likes to play inside and the other out.

    Trade made zero sense for either team. But probably NOLA because Monty is one of the best coaches in the NBA and has experience with great point guards (Chris Paul), as well as the molding young point guards (Vasquez).

    … unless Philly ends up superbly sh!tty and ends up with Andrew Wiggins.

    WEIRD TRADE WHEN YOU HAVE VAZQUEZ AND RIVERS…. THEN HOLIDAY!!!! YES, NOEL DAVIS COMBO should have been nice to see…

    Win-win. New Orleans gets a top ten point guard on a nice four year contract who just turned 23 and could eventually be a second or third best player on a really good team, upgrades their terrible perimeter defense, and adds some sorely needed athleticism. Greivis Vasquez is a nice player on offense, but a total defensive liability. He’s best used as a 6th man as a combo guard, very similar to Jarrett Jack, and the Pelicans can now use him in that role or move him. They also establish that they aren’t tanking any more after doing so for two straight years, which is important for establishing good habits for the young players on their team.

    Philly gets a potential future foundation piece in Noel, a likely mid-late lottery pick in a well-regarded draft, and most importantly, now has a roster that can really challenge for Wiggins with their own pick. This team will be awful. If they’re going to blow it up, they need all the young assets they can get and the potential to land a superstar. This is a great trade for that purpose.
