Luca Sbisa Youth Jersey Jimmy Butler recorded a triple-double Thursday in a win against the 76ers, but he still had some complaints about the game afterwards. Mostly, he was (jokingly) upset with his teammate Bobby Portis for an overly-enthusiastic high-five.
Limited Kids Calvin Johnson Jersey The painful celebration came after Portis hit a jumper as the third quarter finished. Hyped from scoring, the forward put all his strength into the hand celebration and Butler reacted immediately due to the stinging sensation that tingled through his fingers.
Evans and Galloway seem unlikely to be on the team for the rest of the year. Plus, the team only received one first-round pick in the deal, and it seems likely that first-round pick will come somewhere in the 12 to 16 range by the time the season ends due to how much the Pelicans just improved their standing in the league. The pick also has no upside, as the team agreed to the Pelicans’ top-three protection stipulation on it. Oh, and the Sixers have rights to swap their pick with the Kings’ pick, meaning the Kings literally have a zero percent chance at getting the No. 1 overall pick in 2017 despite deciding to hit the reset button and possessing two first-round picks.
Is one seemingly non-elite prospect and one middling first-round pick enough for a top-15 player in the NBA, especially given the team’s draft constraints at the top? It’s difficult to make the argument that it is. By any standard of a superstar trade, the Cousins deal comes up lacking, both in terms of quantity and quality of assets acquired.
