Why The Oklahoma City Thunder Do The Deal
For the Thunder, the question here isn’t “why”. It’s “why not?.
After all, Nwaba doesn’t play for them – period. He is merely on their roster. Meanwhile, how much is a second-round pick reality worth?
Less than taking a flier on Reddish, we figure. If Reddish works out, he could be a very useful player. In theory, he’s a 3-and-D wing who offers secondary shot-creating abilities on the side.
If he doesn’t work out? Well, you’ve parted with David Nwaba and a second-round pick. Sit Reddish for the year, and let free agency sort him out.
