July 8, Beijing time, According to the latest news from the league, the Pelicans officially announced that the team has officially reached a 2-for-1 deal with the Jazz. In this deal, the Pelicans sent the second round picks for 2021 and 2023 to get Jazz center Favors.
Let’s analyze this deal. The Pelicans are undoubtedly taking advantage. Two second rounds can get Favors. Favors is only 27 years old this year and played 76 for the Jazz last season. Per game, he averaged 11.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 blocks. He is an elite inside player. The Jazz sent him away to make room for a certain salary. The various operations of the Jazz this summer have made the team strong. For promotion, it’s time to send away some players who overlap in positions. Favors is undoubtedly such a player.
Although the Pelicans have thick eyebrows, they are the top pick this summer. Zion’s accidental acquisition by the Pelicans was a huge gain, but as an inside center, Zion, to be honest, is a bit low and a bit big, can he adapt to the fierce NBA competition?to be observed.
In the first game of Summer United During the game, Zion injured his knee. Although it was not a serious injury, in order to protect the champion, Zion will no longer participate in the remaining Summer Union games. Although the injury is not serious, but the prospect of the champion is still cast a shadow, such a large weight, very easyYi suffered an injury in the fierce confrontation, and the Pelicans traded Favors, which undoubtedly brought Zion an escort.
Zion’s physical talent is nowhere near Doubtless, it's much like the superstar Barkley in the 1990s, but if you want to grow to such a height, I believe you will have to go through some hardships. Imagine LeBronThe same is the peak once you enter the league, and the peak is more than ten years, which is unrealistic for Zion.
The Pelicans can trade for Favors with only two second round picks. It is undoubtedly a very cost-effective deal. Favors’ experience and ability It can help the team, it can also help Zion grow as quickly as possible, and it can also share the great pressure of Zion on the court. It is a very wise decision for the Pelicans to get Favors, and the chips paid are still so low. It's not much different from Bai Jian.
Let’s take a look at the current Pelicans’ lineup again. With Holiday as the absolute boss, there are a bunch of high-ranking potential new stars: Zion, Qiu Ge, England Gramm, together with Hart and other powerful players, this new youth army is likely to surprise fans in the new season. Of course, The Pelicans are undergoing reconstruction, but the process of reconstruction will be completed soon. As long as these new stars can cash in their talents in the new season, the new Pelicans will rise in the West!
Look at the Lakers who traded with the Pelicans, Rondo + Thick Eyebrows + Cousins. Two years ago, the Big Three of the Pelicans have all gone to Los Angeles to gather. , Who is the ultimate winner in this big exchange between the two teams? I personally think that they are all successful. Whether it is for the team or the players, they are all moving towards their goals. This is the most important thing. Don't you think?
