Has a player of KDs age, production, injury history ever been traded? This is a fairly unique fact set.
Hall of famers have been traded at every age, but that is my point, this is rather unprecedented. No one has given up so much for a player of that age, or a player of such questionable durability.
KG and Pierce were in the mid 30s, still playing in all-star games but didn't have the production KD does... but they were more durable, that trade ended up as one of the worst in history.
Harden was playing like an MVP when the Nets gave up their haul for him but he was 5 years younger and more durable.
Davis was nearly a decade younger and seen as the guy to carry the Lakers into the post-LeBron era.
The durability is obviously the huge issue. Yeah, KD looks like an MVP when he plays but lately he doesn't play enough to be in the MVP conversation.
