Trading Horford makes me uncomfortable.  I generally have no empathy re: trades -- I think DA should trade whoever gets him better value in return.  BUT -- the idea of trading a big-time FA-signee after a year (or 1.5 years if at deadline) is just bad form.  If Horford under-performed that would be a different story, but he's played pretty much to expectations.   I wouldn't feel bad for Horford -- he'll make ends meet -- but it feels wrong and sends a bad message to future FA prospects.

If you are trading Horford in a trade that involves someone like Anthony Davis I think they'd understand lol

I've been thinking when New Orleans team fails again , we offer Horford  ,Rozier  and the Lakers pick for Cousins.

First, offer Horford, Smart, Tatum, Yabusele, Lakers pick, Clippers pick, Grizzlies pick for AD while also taking on E'Twaun Moore and Solomon Hill contracts from them.
Wayyyyyy too much

I don't think so. We will have to "overpay" to get AD, much like Kyrie. As long as you don't have to give up both Jaylen and Tatum, its a huge win.

Kyrie, Brown, Hayward, AD is a stud Top 4.  Still would have Morris and Rozier for one more year.  Fill the team with veteran minimum guys, 2nd rounders (hopefully Ojeleye turns into a stud) and of course Solomon Hill and E'Twaun Moore.
