Rudy Gobert is this season’s CJ McCollum in that every GM will call on a star player and get a response.provide wI th secondary player. Yes, we know you’ve been calling about Donovan, but for the low price of a few draft picks and pay cuts, you could have Rudy at $38 million to $46 million for the next three seasons.
Had Rumor has it that the Bulls could swap Nikola Vucevic for the Tower of Stifle, and that would help Chicago lose in seven games instead of their usual six in the first round. Other teams that have been mooted as potential commercial partners for Gobert are Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte and Toronto, by Zach Lowe by the Salt Lake Tribune.
I’m a bit confused because it’s a series of franchise series. The Raptors always seem to know something the other teams don’t; Mavs and Hawks seem smart but can’t surround their franchise players with the necessary second choice; this will be another step towards absurdity for the new Bulls management after their last strange gambling pattern has paid off; and then the Hornets, who are only happy to be summed up in rumors for a “star” player.
So out of the five teams – the Bulls, the Raptors, the Hawks, the Mavs and the Hornets – are stupid enough to think they’re smart enough to make Gobert a redeemable asset when he’s also 16-NBA’s highest paid player, who has the best shot? And where is the best landing spot for Rudy other than FC Barcelona? (Yes, Gobert deserves to be in the tournament, but his skill set and the way the game is called abroad is why France performed in the Olympics and even beat the US.)
We’ll go from worst to best, and I’ll try not to refer to Gobert as an overly glorified role player.
