    It's CHA's 2nd rounder, acquired in the Daniels-trade.

    Not a huge fan of Payton but for a 2nd rounder I’ll take it.

    Oh good grief. It’s not a bad trade mind you,

    But man. That hair is unwatchable.

    Value is great, basically get him for free.

    But.... you help orlando tank, and you get a little better now, not good for tanking.

    Hopefully if they get a top 5 pick now they'll go ayton/bagley/porter, my favorites instead of doncic.

    I’d love to see him fit in but not make us demonstrably better this year. If he can pan out in the future and we can snag a great big in this draft we might finally be on a great trajectory.

    He had one good year, then just dropped off the cliff. I like him for a second and is a RFA next year

    Question how good deal can McD negotiate with him. Given that the market seems quite dry it is not mission impossible.

    My biggest fear about this deal is that Payton and Josh Jackson are going to get into a "stupidest hair" war. That's a battle where everyone loses.
