Brooklyn Nets Receive: F Michael Porter Jr.
Denver Nuggets Receive: G Kyrie Irving
In case you’re struggling to put the pieces together here, yes, we were referring to Kyrie Irving and Michael Porter Jr. in the last slide.
By now, the word is out on Irving. Any team that rosters him runs the risk of tanking their team chemistry. It’s unfortunate, but it’s reality – trouble seems to follow Irving wherever he goes.
On the other hand, Porter Jr. just can’t seem to get healthy. The same back problems that caused his draft stock to plummet a few years ago are now haunting him at the professional level. As sad as it is to say, they could plague him for the rest of his career.
In other words, both of these teams would be incurring risk here. The Nuggets could be trading for a player who eventually blows the organization to bits.
