Last night the Cavs traded Mo Williams and Jamario Moon to the Clippers for Baron Davis and the Clippers’ #1 pick in this summer’s draft.
The good news about this trade is that the pick isn’t protected, meaning the Cavs will most likely have two top ten picks in the draft.
Second, Baron Davis definitely doesn’t want to play for the Cavs, so he’ll give as little effort as possible. Yes, that’s a good thing. If the Cavs finish with the worst record in the league for the next two years (entirely possible), they would have a top four pick in the next two drafts guaranteed. Look at how that has benefitted Oklahoma City.
Also, this trade definitely makes the Clippers worse. When Baron Davis wants to play, he’s much better than Mo. He at least kind of wanted to play for the Clippers, and that coupled with Blake Griffin made them somewhat of a respectable team. The worse the Clippers are 100% benefits the Cavs, as their pick will just move towards the top of the draft.
As for the title of this post…seriously this dude was ridiculous in that game. He had the “3” icon along with the “High Flyer” icon, meaning he could dunk on anyone and hit every three. He was pretty much unstoppable.
What do you guys think of the trade?
